A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Circumstances are instrumental tools for the wise. 

OUR PERFECT EXAMPLE    
"To this you were called; because CHRIST JESUS also suffered for you leaving you an example, that you should follow HIS steps." [1 Peter 2. 21] 

The four following verses establish a sanction of praise to the LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH for HIS character, nature, attributes and HIS works, accomplishments and many wondrous deeds:

HIS CHARACTER:  "WHO did not commit sin, nor was guile found in HIS mouth." [1 Peter 2. 22]  This refers to a very careful inspection and examination with "no sin or guile (deception)" found anywhere.  The MOST HOLY LORD, the ANOINTED ONE is TOTAL PERFECTION & ALL—TOGETHER LOVELY. 

HIS LIFE:  "WHO, when HE (Y’SHUA) was reviled (injurious slander — a bitter, sharp, heart-breaking wound), did not revile in return; when HE suffered, HE did not threaten; but committed HIMSELF to HIM (GOD THE FATHER) WHO judges righteously." [1 Peter 2. 23]  "Shall not the JUDGE (Hebrew: SHEPHAT) of all the earth deal justly?" [Genesis (Bereshith) 18. 25-b Tanakh, Torah] 

HIS SACRIFICE:  "WHO HIMSELF (Y’SHUA) bore our sins in HIS OWN BODY on the tree; that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness — by WHOSE stripes (literally one bleeding stripe — MESSIAH was so brutally beaten and mutilated by HIS tormentors that HE was simply one massive bruised laceration), you were healed (our healing is past tense at the point of salvation... referring primarily to spiritual healing rather than physical)." [1 Peter 2. 24]  "But HE was wounded because of our sins, crushed because of our iniquities.  HE bore the chastisement that made us whole, and by HIS bruises we were healed." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 53. 5 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

HIS MISSION:  "For you were like sheep going astray, but are now returned to the SHEPHERD and OVERSEER (the KING ETERNAL — Y’SHUA THE ANOINTED ONE) of your souls." [1 Peter 2. 25]  "Like a SHEPHERD (Hebrew: RO`IY) HE pastures HIS flock: HE gathers the lambs in HIS arms and carries them in HIS bosom; gently HE leads those who are with young." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 40. 11 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

MESSIAH Y’SHUA our REDEEMER & SAVIOR, the EVERLASTING GOD has done all to provide our atonement and cover our sins before the GREAT & HOLY GOD OF HEAVEN & EARTH.  The SON OF MAN, the LORD JESUS, lived a Sinless Life; then died the WORTHY SACRIFICE to redeem HIS OWN special people. 

Thank YOU, LORD — now and throughout all eternity we will praise YOU, our FATHER for YOUR majestic loving-kindness and goodness to us! 


Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”Eem eshkakhech Yerushalayim —If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  If a sacrifice does not accompany good deeds it is meaningless.  Watch and pray... the LORD MESSIAH Y’SHUA our KING is coming soon; the signs are everywhere! 
  We magnify and sanctify YOUR GREAT NAME, O LORD GOD; may YOUR Kingdom be established speedily and in our time for our eyes long to see YOUR face!  A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Circumstances are instrumental tools for the wise. 

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. . .
Mankind may be the cause of events in this world, but GOD works all things together, the good and the evil, all the pieces of the puzzle, for the purpose of redemption 

WHO IS HE    
Agur ben-Yakeh, the writer of the Proverb, surveyed — "WHO has ascended heaven to and come down?  WHO has gathered up the wind in the hollow of HIS hand?  WHO has wrapped the waters in HIS garment?  WHO has established all the extremities of the earth?  What is HIS NAME or HIS SON'S NAME, if you know it?" [Proverbs (Mishle) 30. 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

The LORD Y’SHUA, the WORD OF GOD that took on flesh and became a MAN, is the ONE being spoken of in this text.  JESUS is the SON OF THE LIVING GOD.  "A CHILD is born to us, a SON is given to us.  And authority (government) has settled on HIS shoulders.  HE has been named — WONDERFUL (SECRET), COUNSELOR (PLANNER OF GRACE), the MIGHTY GOD, ETERNAL FATHER, RULER OF PEACE." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 9. 6 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

It was through Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH that ALMIGHTY GOD'S purpose might prosper.  Out of HIS anguish the "RIGHTEOUS SERVANT makes the many righteous, it is their punishment that HE bears; assuredly, I will give HIM the many as HIS portion, HE shall receive the multitude as HIS spoil.  For HE poured out HIMSELF to death and was numbered among the sinners, whereas HE bore the guilt of the many and made intercession for sinners." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 53. 11 - 12 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  In love, the LORD Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH "gave HIMSELF for us, that HE might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for HIMSELF HIS OWN special people, zealous for good works." [Titus 2. 14] 

"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]  "You are MY witnesses — declares the LORD — MY servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe in ME, and understand that I am HE.  Before ME no god was formed, and after ME none shall exist — none but ME.  I, even I, am the LORD, and besides ME there is no Y’SHA` (SAVIOR)." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 43. 10 - 11 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

Our LOVING CREATOR alone is a GREAT OMNIPOTENT GOD WHO proclaims beforehand what HE will do.  There is no other GOD besides HIM WHO became as we are that HE might deliver us from sin's grip.  The HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL exclusively saved us for HS glory, redeem us back to the HEAVENLY FATHER, and purified us from all unrighteousness.  Then, HE made us HIS OWN special people.  Now we are HIS witnesses, proclaiming and broadcasting publicly that HE is LORD of lords, GOD of gods, the KING of all ages.  "Indeed before the day was, I am HE; none can deliver from MY hand.  When I act, who will reverse it?" [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 43. 13 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

"The LORD of Hosts has sworn this oath — As I have designed (thought), so shall it happen; what I have planned, that shall stand (come to pass)... For the LORD OF HOSTS has planned, and who can annul or foil it?  HIS hand is stretched out (poised, prepared), and who can stop it (turn it back)?" [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 14. 24, 27 Tanakh, Nevi'im]   Isn't HE wonderful! 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”Eem eshkakhech Yerushalayim — If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  We have an AWESOME GOD, and HE is on HIS Throne ruling over the affairs of men.  The LORD is worthy of all our praise and worship, even in difficult times.  May peace abundant descend from heaven with life for us and to all Israel, Amen. 

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. . .
Beauty is the indomitable (strong) power of life, the determination to live on despite all difficulties, the drive for eternity...the ultimate goal. 

ABRAHAM: ALTERING COURSE OF HISTORY (Part 2)    
"Abraham believed GOD, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.  And he was called the friend of GOD." [James 2. 23] 

The Covenant
Finally, when Abraham was seventy years old he had a great vision known as the Karat Berit “Cutting of the Blood Covenant.” [Genesis/Bereshith 15]  This Covenant singled out him and his family for a special existence in humanity.  It is really the beginning of the Jewish story. 

This Special Covenant is a two-way commitment between CREATOR GOD and the Jewish people that will unleash forces to compel it to continue, including horrific suffering.  That is why Abraham is at first terror-stricken by the vision.  He sees darkness, vultures and fire, the enslavement in Egypt and the destructions that will come upon the Jewish people throughout history, perhaps even Auschwitz and the other death camps. 

Nevertheless, far from a punishment leading to annihilation, the suffering of the Jewish people will ultimately make them stronger and bring them back to their commitment to The Covenant.  And we have seen this borne out in history again and again.  Just look at the enormous advances of the Jewish world after the Holocaust, which is only the most recent example of this terrible phenomenon. 

Jewish history begins with Abraham's acceptance of The Covenant.  Whatever happens to the Jewish people is a result of that Covenant.  All the ups and downs are based on GOD’S perfect plan of salvation, for the promise of MESSIAH WHO came as portrayed on the pages of HOLY SCRIPTURE. 

In reality, Abraham’s choice is the choice that faces each and every generation, indeed each and every Jew.  The struggle within the Jewish people to live by The Covenant and pursue its goals or to give up on it — as well as the struggle of the world to break The Covenant from them – is part and parcel of the struggle implied by acceptance of The Covenant. 

Beyond Impossible
Of course, at the time Abraham is offered to enter into the covenant there is one technical problem: he has no children and his wife is incapable of having children.  She is infertile. 

That, too, is part of The Covenant: under normal circumstances there is no Jewish future.  The Jewish people are always “infertile” coming face-to-face with the impossible.  There cannot be another generation.  And the world counts upon it; it is a sure thing that they will disappear.  After 3,000 years they are still waiting for it to happen.  Who could imagine that after so many years we are still here?  That is the covenantal nature of Jewish history. 

The Covenant, impressed in the flesh of the Jew through circumcision, emanates from a realm beyond human reason.  It is our commitment to our GOD and a higher morality.  It is our faith and our responsibility; our history and destiny.  And it all originates in the great person, Abraham, who single-handedly, through YEHOWAH KABODI, GOD THE GLORIOUS ONE, changed the course of civilization. 

Yet a GREATER ONE has come, the HOLY ONE promised that the woman's "Seed" would crush the head of the serpent. [Genesis/Bereshith 3. 15]  This ONE WHO was born as an INCREDIBLY ATONING MIRACULOUS SIGN to all Israel.  "Assuredly, my LORD will give you a sign of HIS OWN accord!  Behold, a young virgin (Hebrew: almah — engaged virgin) is with CHILD and about to give birth to a SON.  Let her name HIM, IMMANU'EL (Hebrew: with us is GOD)." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 7. 14 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  This SON is none other than Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH (JESUS THE CHRIST) for HE, and only HE fulfills all the 300 prophecies of the MESSIAH in the OLD COVENANT (TANAKH) that are found in the Law, the Prophets and the Writings. [Luke 24. 44] 

May you know and believe the ALMIGHTY CREATOR GOD, as did Abraham which GOD accounted to him for righteousness. [Genesis/Bereshith 15:6; Romans 4:3; Galatians 3:6; James 2:23]  You then will be privileged to receive HOLY GOD'S GREATEST BLESSINGS here and now... that of knowing the LORD Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH, our WONDERFUL LOVING REDEEMER, personally.  The LORD Y’SHUA is returning very soon as the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE and HE will rule and reign forevermore as "KING of kings and LORD of lords."  Hallelu'YAH! 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”Eem eshkakhech Yerushalayim — If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  As we bid farewell to Shabbas, our prayer is that GOD, WHO'S PRECIOUS SPIRIT dwells within us, bless you abundantly. 
  May it be YOUR will O GOD that our homes become a sanctuary worthy of YOUR HOLY PRESENCE wherein YOUR NAME shall be hallowed, that YOU may come and grant YOUR blessings and YOUR DIVINE grace each and every day.  We give ourselves over into YOUR keeping, our hearts contrite, and our prayers made with a repentant heart.
  May peace abundant descend from heaven with life for us and to all Israel.  Mighty are those who rejoice in YOU, LORD GOD MOST HIGH.
  May some of the sweetness of Sabbath be present throughout the week.

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. . .
Time is like a river…you cannot touch the water twice because the flow that has passed will never pass again.. 

ABRAHAM: ALTERING COURSE OF HISTORY (Part 1 of 2)    
"Abraham believed GOD, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.  And he was called the friend of GOD." [James 2. 23] 

Abraham: Altering the Course of History
Our forefather changed the way the world thought about itself, life and especially the MAJESTIC CREATOR. 

That is why his name was changed from Abram (Hebrew: exalted father), Abraham, means “father of numerous nations.”  He is the father of civilization as we know it.  From his time and onward, people would never think about themselves the same way. 

Abraham was born at a time of tremendous upheaval and turmoil.  He lived in a world with a collective memory of the Great Flood; a world contending with the tyranny of Nimrod, the first intensively wicked tyrant [Genesis 10:8]; a world that will divide into separate nations [1 Chronicles 1:19]; a world deeply at conflict with itself that ill endure more than two decades of war between major powers; a world buried under the heel of a thousand years of idolatry; a world gone mad – ultimately, a world with no hope for the future...until Abraham appeared, a man used by ALMIGHTY GOD. 

THE TYRANNY OF IDOLATRY
Abram was born in Mesopotamia/Chaldea, modern-day Iraq.  It is believed that Abram was the oldest of triplets born to Terah (Abram, Nahor Haran -Gen 11:24).  Terah was a merchant who sold idols, a thriving business.  There was a different idol for every mood, temperament and personality.  The masses believed in paganism though they were frightened of it.  The more sophisticated people, however, knew it was nothing but as far as they could see there was no other alternative.  There was no other philosophy in the world so they didn’t go beyond it.  God’s call on Abram’s life provided the leadership to change all that.  His travels finally led him from Mesopotamia through Syria to the promised Land of Israel.  This truly was a time of great movement and migration of Abraham’s family including his father Terah and brothers except Haran who died in the land of the Chaldeans. 

Jerusalem was called Shalem (Salem) at the time.  According to Oral Tradition, Noah’s son, Shem and his grandson Eber, introduced an institution located there dedicated to morality and knowledge of the CREATOR.  However they did not have a large following as one had to go to it, which was not exported to others.  However, Abraham changed that. 

Historians say that a number of the Pharaohs were essentially monotheists.  Not coincidentally, those Pharaohs lived around and after the time of Abraham.  However, his visit to Egypt (Genesis 12) made an impression.  The idea of monotheism took hold in the highest echelons of Egyptian society.  It looked as if they had no way to sell it to the masses because there was a tremendous bureaucracy of idol worship.  Egyptian society remained pagan because the idol worship was so strongly believed and practiced that the Pharaoh himself could not turn it around.  Whether they believed it or not, the priests were not going to give up their profession. 

Outside of Egypt, however, Abraham’s name spread rapidly among the masses.  His ideas, character and personality became the talk of the civilized world.  Countless individual families now believed there is a God of creation, morality, and that there was a greater purpose to life. 

Family Life
Abraham married Sarai his half sister, who’s name was also changed to Sarah.  “And I will bless her and also give you a son by her; then I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of peoples shall be from her." [Gen 17:16]  EL SHADDAI told Abraham to listen to Sarah — “Whatever Sarah has said to you, listen to her voice; for in Isaac your seed shall be called.” [Gen 21:12-13] 

Yet, these two great people had a long and difficult life together.  Sarah was barren for many years.  In trying to remedy the situation, Sarah asked Abraham to bear a child for her through her maidservant, Hagar.  Ultimately, the child born from her, Ishmael, caused many problems.  Eventually, GOD told Abraham to banish Hagar and Ishmael from his household, which was extremely difficult for him. 

Abraham had a nephew, Lot (Hebrew: Lowt, means covering, veil), whom he hoped would be his heir apparent, but once Lot tasted success he decided to go his own way and settled in Sodom.  Lot is not necessarily an evil person; he just does not want to shoulder any responsibilities – and Sodom is the ideal place for a person who wants to escape responsibility. 

Domestic strife in Abraham’s house is omnipresent.  All he wants to do is build civilization through his family and all his family does is fall short of the task or forsake him. 

. . . to be continued
Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”Eem eshkakhech Yerushalayim — If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  Welcome Sabbath - Come, let us welcome the Bride of the Week, Sabbath of Toldot - “Generations” [Parasha - the appointed reading: Genesis 25:19 - 28:9; Malachi 1:1 – 2:7; Matthew 10:21-38] 
  May its radiance illumine our hearts as we kindle the candles of Sabbath!  Blessed are You, Lord God, King of the Universe, who made us holy with his commandments and favored us, and gave us His holy Shabbat, in love and favor, to be our heritage, as a reminder of the Creation.  Amen 
  As you celebrate the day, remember to continually give thanks in all things and to share Sabbath’s sweetness with those around you. 

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. . .
Our most valuable possessions are things money cannot buy. 

IN REMEMBRANCE OF YOU    
"I thank my GOD upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy." [Philippians 1. 3-4] 

"Grace to you and peace from GOD our FATHER and the LORD JESUS CHRIST." [Philemon 1. 3]   We humbly and graciously thank the MOST HIGH GOD for allowing us to have such wonderful, personal CHRIST-like friends all over the world.  Our special, faithful, dedicated friends, family — who have held us up in prayer, encouraged us, laughed with us and at us, lightened burdens, cheered us, refreshed and supported us and our ministry in the service of MESSIAH Y’SHUA.  We are truly richly blessed and owe such a debt to the ALMIGHTY ONE for the treasured gifts HE has given us in each of you. 

This is devoted to our beloved family of friends in the LORD OF ALL, the KING OF ISRAEL:  "To the saints and faithful brethren in CHRIST... Grace to you and peace from GOD our FATHER and the LORD JESUS CHRIST.  We give thanks to the GOD and FATHER of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, praying always for you... for your faith in JESUS CHRIST and of your love for all the saints; because of the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, of which you heard before in the word of the truth of the GOSPEL, which has come to you, as it has also in all the world, and is bringing forth fruit, as it is also among you since the day you heard and knew the grace of GOD in truth." [Colossians 1. 2-6] 

And this we pray, "that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the things that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of CHRIST, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by JESUS CHRIST, to the glory and praise of GOD." [Philippians 1. 9 - 11] 

"Brethren, your faith grows exceedingly, and the love of every one of you all abounds toward each other." [2 Thessalonians 1. 3]  We personally know "of your love and faith which you have toward the LORD JESUS and toward all the saints... and every good thing which is in you in MESSIAH Y’SHUA." [Philemon 1. 4 - 6]  "For this reason we also thank GOD without ceasing, because when you received the WORD OF GOD which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the WORD OF GOD, which also effectively works in you who believe." [1 Thessalonians 2. 13] 

May the MIGHTY GOD OF HOSTS keep each of you "steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the LORD, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the LORD." [1 Corinthians 15. 58]  "Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.  Let all that you do be done with love." [1 Corinthians 16. 13 - 14] 

Precious one, know always that you are cherished, appreciated and loved.  We thank YOU LORD, our MIGHTY & GREAT GOD and praise YOUR GLORIOUS NAME, for each treasured individual YOU have blessed us to share in their lives.  We prayerfully ask YOU, OMNIPRESENT LOVING MASTER, to bless, enrich and strengthen each one as only YOU can.  Watch over each life and bring them closer to YOU as only YOU can.  With thanks and praise. . . Amen, Amen!

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel !
”Eem eshkakhech Yerushalayim — If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
Here are four Jewish insights to unlock the door to gratitude. 
1. Give thanks for life itself - Life itself is a gift which we should never take for granted. 
2. Strengthen your gratitude muscle - Say thank you three times a day to people who have treated us with kindness. 
3. Thank those who had an influence on your life - The Talmud compares teachers to stars.  The TALMUD explains that just as stars are always present even when they cannot be seen, a teacher’s influence continues even when a student can no longer see them.  Give heartfelt thanks for the impact they had on your life. 
4. Keep the gratitude flowing - Say thank you to GOD, HE is our constant SOURCE  of blessings.  And, never forget the good done for you by others. 
  Happy & Blessed Thanksgiving! Our dear friends, we wish you a festive, warm, loving, blazingly bright, and happy Holy Days.  May this season be filled with thanksgiving in your heart shining bright into the lives of those who so desperately need the love, peace and joy that burns brightly in you. 
  Truly, giving thanks is such a cherished conversation with the PRECIOUS ONE WHO redeemed us, do it every day, you will be continually grateful that you did!  “Give thanks to the LORD, call on HIS NAME; make known among the nations what HE has done.  Sing to HIM, sing praise to HIM; tell of all HIS wonderful acts.  Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is GOD'S will for you in CHRIST JESUS.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18  Let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to GOD, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to HIS HOLY NAME. 

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

One who pursues greatness, greatness will flee from him; one who flees from greatness, greatness will pursue him. [Talmud Eiruvin 13b] 

ARROGANT PRIDE    
"I constantly spread out MY hands all day long to a rebellious people, who walk in the way that is not good, following their own thoughts; a people who provoke ME to anger, who continually to MY face, sacrifice in gardens and burn incense on altars of brick... Who say, 'Keep your distance!  Do not come near me, for I am holier than you!’" [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 65. 2 - 3, 5 Tanakh, Nevi’im] 

People have not changed over the centuries, societies are filled with those who proclaim they are better, superior, and holier then others, their attitude  clearly marks them.  Similar to the high priests and Levites in MESSIAH’S story of the Good Samaritan, they prefer to walk by the needy rather than stoop to help them.  Even in many churches, such arrogance can be found, and it continues to be a problem.  James warns, "For if there should come into your assembly a man with gold rings, in fine apparel, and there should also come in a poor man in filthy clothes, and you pay attention to the one wearing the fine clothes and say to him, "You sit here in a good place" and say to the poor man — "You stand there" or "Sit here at my footstool" — have you not shown partiality among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts?" [James 2. 2 - 4] 

There is a list of things the ALMIGHTY LORD GOD hates recorded in the Book of Proverbs:  "Six things the LORD hates; seven are an abomination to HIM: A haughty (proud) look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart (mind) that devises evil plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who incites (sows) discord (arguments, conflicts, disputes) among brethren." [Proverbs (Mishle) 6. 17 - 19 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  Notice, the primary detestable act is "A proud look."  Whenever we are tempted to think we are superior in any way, we need to take our eyes off others and fasten them on our EXALTED SAVIOR, but "we dare not class ourselves or compare ourselves with those who commend (praise) themselves.  But they, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise." [2 Corinthians 10. 12] 

In his pride, Satan (Lucifer) proclaimed —  "I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne higher then the stars of GOD; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the summit of Zaphon (the City of the GREAT KING – see Psalms 48.3); I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the MOST HIGH."   However, the MOST HOLY LORD GOD will see that he is "brought down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the Pit." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 14. 13 - 15 Tanakh, Nevi’im]  The RIGHTEOUS JUDGE will punish the proud because, "Every haughty (proud) person in heart is an abomination to the LORD; assuredly, he will not go unpunished." [Proverbs (Mishle) 16. 5 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

The LOVING CREATOR GOD gave us the spirit of humility, which is the beginning of true holiness.  "Thus says the HIGH & LOFTY ONE WHO inhabits eternity, WHOSE NAME is HOLY: "I dwell on high in holiness, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, reviving the hearts of the contrite one." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 57. 15 Tanakh, Nevi’im]  "On this one will I look: On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, and who trembles at MY WORD." [Isaiah/Yeshayah) 66. 2]  The HOLY ONE is still changing lives today, seek HIM while HE may be found, call upon HIM while HE is near for HE will abundantly pardon.  Follow the LORD Y’SHUA, for the love experience of a lifetime, and then beyond throughout all eternity. 


Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”Eem eshkakhech Yerushalayim—If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  CREATOR of the Universe, we come before YOU to praise and extol YOUR greatness and goodness.  YOU, LORD GOD, are the FOUNTAIN from which all blessings flow.  In all the experiences of life, we recognize that YOUR guiding hand establishes our work and that YOUR love lifts our lives to nobler effort.  Praying that the inspiration of this day strengthen our faith in YOU.  Purify our spirits that in our daily tasks we may be conscious of YOUR PRESENCE.  Continue to bestow YOUR benediction on us and teach us to seek YOU ever more.  Help us to live that when we have gathered our final harvest, many shall rise up with us to magnify and bless YOUR PRECIOUS NAME. 
As we enter Rosh Chodesh, we greet the new month of Kislev 

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.

"Heavenly Father, our cups are running over with Your goodness. Thank You for loving us, for saving us and for keeping us. Please help us to always have a thankful heart. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
In the beginning GOD wished to render justice, but when HE observed that the world could not rest on justice, HE rendered mercy. [TALMUD, Rosh ha'Shanah 17] 

GOSPEL PREACHED TO THE WORLD    
"He who endures to the end shall be saved.  And the GOSPEL of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come." [Matthew 24. 12 - 14] 

The MOST HIGH GOD OF HEAVEN is faithful in all things.  "There is no other god besides ME, a JUST GOD and a SAVIOR; no god exists besides ME.  Turn to ME, and be saved, all ends of the earth!  For I am GOD, and there is none else." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 45. 21 – 22 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

The SOVEREIGN ETERNAL ONE desires that none be lost, and all come to the knowledge of the truth in saving faith. [1 Timothy 2. 4]  "So HE became their SAVIOR.  In all their troubles HE was afflicted, HIS OWN PRESENCE delivered them; in HIS love and in HIS pity HE redeemed them; and HE bore them and carried them all the days of old." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 63. 8 – 9 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  "The STONE that the builders rejected has become the CHIEF CORNERSTONE.  This was the LORD'S doing; it is marvelous in our sight." [Psalms (Tehillym) 118. 22 - 23 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

Men were given the privilege of sharing the WONDROUS LIFE-GIVING MESSAGE that whoever believed would be saved.  This GOOD NEWS had gone out from Judea, Samaria, then into the uttermost parts of the world, and continues today.  The HOLY LORD has always had devoted followers with hearts willing to complete the great commission, which is still to "go into all the world and preach the GOSPEL to every creature!" [Mark 16. 15] 

The prophets, apostles, disciples, missionaries and modern-day world evangelism thought the WORD had been spread completely by their teaching on radio, internet and television.  However, the ALMIGHTY let it be known that it still is not complete.  As you read the Book of Revelation, you find that GOD HIMSELF will be the ONE to assure the task is complete, for HE shows the way it will be accomplished HIS perfect and complete way. 

Two Witnesses:  The FAITHFUL & TRUE, the AUTHOR & FINISHER of our faith affirms: "And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees and the two lamp stands standing before the God of the earth." [Revelation 11. 3 - 4]  When they finish their testimony, the beast from the bottomless pit will make war on them and kill them, but after three days, the BREATH OF LIFE from GOD will enter them and they will ascend into heaven in a cloud. [Revelation 11. 7 - 14] 

144,000 Jewish Witnesses:  The SAVIOR OF OLD has 144,000 un-defiled, virgin Jewish men "who follow the LAMB wherever HE goes.  These were redeemed by MESSIAH from among men being first-fruits to GOD and to the LAMB.  And in their mouth was found no guile, for they are without fault before the Throne of GOD." [Revelation 14. 4 – 5; 7. 1 - 8] 

Remnant of the Woman's Seed:  Again in Revelation we see that those who are left behind, will overcome Satan, the Accuser,  by "the blood of the LAMB and by the word of their testimony" for they did not love their lives to the death. [Revelation 12. 11] 

Three Angels' Announcement:  "Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the EVERLASTING GOSPEL to preach to those who dwell on the earth — to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people saying with a loud voice — Fear GOD and give glory to HIM, for the hour of HIS judgment has come; and worship HIM WHO made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water." [Revelation 14. 6 - 7] 
  "And another angel followed, saying — Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication." 
  "Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice — If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of GOD, which is poured out full strength into the cup of HIS indignation.  He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the LAMB." [Revelation 14. 8 - 10] 
May each of us be found faithful doing our HEAVENLY FATHER'S business when HE comes... for the crowns we will win, is the souls of men: "Therefore, my beloved and longed - for brethren, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the LORD, beloved." [Philippians 4. 1]  "For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing?  Is it not even you in the presence of our LORD JESUS CHRIST at HIS coming?  For you are our glory and joy." [1 Thessalonians 2. 19 - 20] 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  May you have a heart to know YEHOWAH, that HE is the LORD of your life.  Oh, return to HIM with your whole heart.  May each of you be delivered from trouble and harm, or strengthened through it.  Heal us O LORD, make us righteous in YOUR sight.  May the message of GOD'S PRECIOUS WORD and the love of Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH the SAVIOR bless you and bubble-up in your heart to overflowing. Amen 
  Beloved brethren, we encourage you to stand firm and confident in the LORD Y’SHUA.  May you be filled with HIS wisdom, knowledge, righteous discernment, and boldness especially as we go forth in the battle against the enemies of our saving faith. 

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.

Delrifkah: HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. Empty Re: Delrifkah: HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY.

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 Y’SHUA 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!
If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  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. 

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 where you are going, you should at least know how you got there.

CURSED FOR DIVIDING    
"For lo! in those days and in that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat.  There I will contend with them over MY very own people, Israel, which they scattered among the nations.  For they divided MY Land among themselves and cast lots for MY people." [Joel (Yoel) 3. 1 - 3 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

How can there be any question as to WHOM the land of Israel belongs, or who is to be in possession of it?  It was given to the Israelites as an "everlasting inheritance" from the ALMIGHTY CREATOR, the KING & RIGHTEOUS JUDGE.  There are numerous SCRIPTURES confirming that the lands of all the earth belong to GOD MOST HIGH.  On the day the LORD GOD "cut the covenant" with Avram (Abraham) the HOLY ONE said — "To your offspring I assign this Land, from the River of Egypt (Nile) to the great river, the River Euphrates." [Genesis (Bereshith) 15. 18 Tanakh, Torah] 

Speaking to Moses, the ALMIGHTY ONE said — "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." [Exodus (Shemot) 19. 5 Tanakh, Torah]  "The Land must not be sold beyond reclaim, for the Land is MINE; you are but strangers resident with ME." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 25. 23 Tanakh, Torah]  Moses was even instructed as to the division of the Land among the tribes…"These are the names of the men through whom THE LAND shall be apportioned (divided) as an INHERITANCE FOR YOU: Eleazar the priest and Joshua the son of Nun. And you shall take a leader of each tribe through whom the Land shall be apportioned (divided) for the inheritance." [Numbers (B'Midvar) 34. 16 - 18 Tanakh, Torah] 

The ALMIGHTY ONE gives the land to whoever HE chooses: Speaking to Joshua, the LORD GOD said, "As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will not fail you nor forsake you.  Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide, as an inheritance, the Land which I swore to their fathers to assign to them.  But you must be very strong and resolute to observe faithfully all the Teachings that MY servant Moses enjoined upon you.  Do not deviate from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.  Let not this BOOK OF THE LAW cease from your lips, but recite it day and night, so that you may observe faithfully all that is written in it.  Only then will you prosper in your undertakings and only then will you be successful." [Joshua (Yehoshua) 1. 5 - 8 Tanakh, Nevi'im]
"Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them — When you cross the Jordan into the Land of Canaan, you shall DISPOSSESS (drive out) all the inhabitants of the Land; destroy all their engraved objects; you shall destroy all their molded images; and you shall demolish all their cult places.  And you shall take possession of the Land and settle in it, for I have assigned the Land to you to possess.  You shall divide the Land among yourselves by lot, clan by clan, as an inheritance... you shall inherit your portion according to your ancestral tribes." [Numbers (B'Midvar) 33. 51 - 54 Tanakh, Torah] 

Although the children of Israel disobeyed the LORD GOD, in HIS mercy, HE will bring them back and give them their inheritance as HE promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  "I give to you and your offspring to come, all the Land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will be their GOD." [Genesis (Bereshith) 17. 8 Tanakh, Torah]  "As the LORD lives who brought up the children of Israel out of the northland and out of all the lands to which HE had banished them.  For I will bring them back to their Land which I gave to their fathers." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 16. 15 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  "For the days are coming — declares the LORD — when I will restore the fortunes of MY people Israel and Judah — said the LORD; and I will bring them back to the Land that I gave their fathers, and they shall possess it." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 30. 3 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

"Assuredly, thus says the LORD GOD — I will now restore the fortunes of Jacob and take the whole House of Israel back in love; and I will be zealous for MY HOLY NAME. They will forget their shame and all their trespasses that they committed in being unfaithful to ME, when they dwelt in their own land secure and untroubled.  When I have brought them back from among the peoples and gathered them out of the lands of their enemies and have manifested MY holiness through them in the sight of many nations, they shall know that I the LORD am their GOD when, having exiled them among the nations, I gather them back into their land and leave none of them behind.  I will never again hide MY face from them; for I will pour out MY SPIRIT upon the House of Israel — declares the LORD GOD." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 39. 25 - 29 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

Remember, there is a curse on everyone who curses Israel:  "Cursed be they who curse you (Israel); Blessed be they who bless you (Israel)!" [Genesis (Bereshith) 27. 29 Tanakh, Torah]  A wise and understanding heart makes the best judgment.

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  The sword comes into the world because of justice being delayed, because of justice being perverted, and because of those who render wrong decisions.
  May the MASTER of mercy, show HIS mercy and compassion to all of you, our beloved.
”HEAVENLY FATHER, teach us to emulate YOUR OWN grace and mercy.  Cause YOUR Truth to fall upon our hearts like seed upon fertile ground.  And, may we learn to love YOUR Law ever more deeply and to find in it the beauty of holiness. Amen” 

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 only to confirm what is possible. [-Maimonides] 

SOLOMON'S PRAYER – GOD'S ANSWER    
   Solomon's focus was on his posture (on his knees with his hands spread); his position (facing the Temple); and the structure he made.  Discern his prayer at the Temple's Dedication:
   "Then Solomon, standing before the Altar of the LORD in the presence of all the whole congregation of Israel, spreading forth his hands.  Solomon had made a copper platform and set it in the midst of the Great Court; it was five cubits long, five cubits wide, and three cubits high.  He stood on it; then kneeling down on his knees before the whole assembly of Israel, he spread forth his hands toward heaven and said: "O LORD GOD OF ISRAEL, there is no god like YOU in the heavens or on earth, YOU keep YOUR Covenant and mercy with YOUR servants who walk before YOU with all their hearts; YOU have kept the promises YOU made to YOUR servant, my father David; YOU have both spoken with YOUR mouth and fulfilled it with YOUR hand, as it is this day. And now, O LORD GOD OF ISRAEL, keep that promise YOU made YOUR servant, my father David saying — You shall not fail to have a man sit before ME on the throne of Israel if only your children take heed to their way, that they walk in MY Law as you have walked before ME.  Now, LORD GOD OF ISRAEL, let YOUR WORD that YOU made to YOUR servant, my father David, be confirmed." 
  "Does GOD indeed dwell with men on the earth?  Even heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain YOU; how much less this Temple which I have built!  Yet regard the prayer and supplication of YOUR servant, O LORD my GOD, and listen to the cry and the prayer which YOUR servant offers to YOU.  May YOUR eyes be open toward this Temple day and night, toward the place where YOU said YOU would put YOUR NAME, that YOU may hear the prayer which YOUR servant offers toward this place.  And may YOU hear the supplications of YOUR servant and of YOUR people Israel, when they pray toward this place.  Hear from heaven YOUR Dwelling Abode, and when YOU hear, forgive." 
   "If anyone sins against his neighbor, and an oath is exacted from him, and comes and takes an oath before YOUR altar in this Temple, then hear from heaven, and act, and judge YOUR servants, bringing retribution on the wicked by bringing his way on his own head, and justifying the righteous by giving him according to his righteousness."
   "Should YOUR people Israel be defeated before an enemy because they have sinned against YOU, and return and confess YOUR NAME, and offer prayer and make supplication before YOU in this Temple, then hear from heaven and forgive the sin of YOUR people Israel, and restore them back to the land which YOU gave to them and their fathers." 
   "When the heavens are shut up and there is no rain because they have sinned against YOU, when they pray toward this place and confess YOUR NAME, and turn from their sin because YOU humbled them, then hear in heaven, and forgive the sin of YOUR servants, YOUR people Israel, that YOU may teach them the good way in which they should walk; and send rain on YOUR land which YOU have given to YOUR people as their heritage.  "So too, if there is a famine in the land, pestilence, blight, mildew, locusts or grasshoppers; when their enemies oppress them in any of their settlements of their land."  
   "In any plague or whatever sickness there is; whatever prayer or supplication is made by anyone, or by all YOUR people Israel — each one knows his own burden and his own grief — when he spreads out his hands to this House: may YOU hear from heaven YOUR dwelling place, and forgive.  Give to everyone according to all his ways, whose heart YOU know — for YOU alone know the hearts of the sons of men — that they may fear YOU, to walk in YOUR ways as long as they live in the land which YOU gave to our fathers." 
   "Moreover, if a foreigner who is not of YOUR people Israel, who comes from a far country for the sake of YOUR GREAT NAME, YOUR MIGHTY HAND, and YOUR OUTSTRETCHED ARM, when they come and pray toward this House; then hear from Heaven YOUR Dwelling Place, and grant whatever the foreigner appeals to YOU for.  Thus all the peoples of the earth may know YOUR NAME and revere YOU as do YOUR people Israel; and that they may know that YOUR NAME is attached to this Temple that I have built." 
   "When YOUR people go out to battle against their enemies, wherever YOU send them, and when they pray to YOU toward this City which YOU have chosen and the House which I have built to YOUR NAME, then hear from heaven their prayer and their supplication, and uphold their cause." 
   "When they sin against YOU — for there is no one who does not sin — and YOU become angry with them and deliver them to the enemy, and they take them captive to an enemy land, far or near; yet when they come to themselves in the land where they were carried captive, and repent, and make supplication to YOU in the land of their captivity, saying — We have sinned, we have done wrong, and have committed wickedness — and when they return to YOU with all their heart and with all their soul in the land of their captivity, where they have been carried captive, and pray toward their land which YOU gave to their fathers, the City which YOU have chosen, and toward the Temple which I have built for YOUR NAME — may YOU hear their prayer and their supplications in YOUR Heavenly Dwelling, and maintain their cause, and forgive YOUR people who have sinned against YOU." 
   "Now my GOD, may YOUR eyes be open and let YOUR ears be attentive to the prayer from this place, and now, arise, O LORD GOD, to YOUR resting place, YOU and YOUR Mighty Ark of strength.  Let YOUR priests, O LORD GOD, be clothed with salvation, YOUR saints rejoice in YOUR goodness.  O LORD GOD, do not turn away the face of YOUR ANOINTED; remember the loyalty of YOUR servant David." [2 Chronicles (Dibre Hayamin Bet) 6. 12 - 42 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

GOD'S Answer:   
   "The LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said to him: "I have heard your prayer, and have chosen this place for MYSELF as a House of Sacrifice.  When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence against MY people, if MY people who are called by MY NAME will HUMBLE THEMSELVES, PRAY and SEEK MY FACE, and TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.  Now MY eyes will be open and MY ears attentive to prayer made in this place.  For now I have chosen and sanctified this House that MY NAME may be there forever; and MY eyes and MY heart will be there forever." 
   "As for you, if you walk before ME as your father David walked before ME, and do according to all that I have commanded you, and if you keep MY statutes and MY judgments, then I will establish the throne of your kingdom, as I covenanted with David your father, saying — You shall never fail to have a man as ruler in Israel. 
  "But if you turn away from ME and forsake MY Laws and MY commandments which I have set before you, and go and serve other gods and worship them, then I will uproot them (Israel) from MY land which I have given them; and this House which I have sanctified for MY NAME I will cast out of MY sight, and will make it a proverb and a byword among all peoples. 
  "And as for this House, once so exalted, everyone who passes by it will be astonished and say — Why has the LORD done thus to this land and this House?  Then they will answer — It is because they forsook the LORD GOD of their fathers WHO brought them up out of the land of Egypt, and embraced other gods and worshiped them and served them; therefore HE has brought all this calamity on them." [2 Chronicles (Dibre Hayamin Bet) 7. 12 - 22 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  

Solomon fell into sin and the kingdom was taken from his son. [1 Kings (Dibre Hayamin Alef) 11. 1-13 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  The GLORIOUS ONE cast the House that Solomon had made out of HIS sight just as HE said HE would. [2 Chronicles/Dibre Hayamin Bet 36.17–19; Ezra 5.12; 2 Kings/Melakhim Bet 25.8-10]  Years later, for the same reason, GOD scattered HIS people, Israel, throughout all the lands of the earth.  Then in 70 AD, GOD again cast the elaborate Temple Herod made out of HIS sight.  No Temple has been on the site for nearly 2,000 years. 

The Tabernacle was only sanctified when the glory of YEHOWAH was present. [Exodus/Shemot 29. 43; Ezekiel/Yehezke-El 43. 5; Haggai/Chagai 2. 7, 9]  Without the LORD'S PRESENCE, it was just an exquisite structure.  GOD, the RIGHTEOUS & HOLY ONE does not care about position, posture, the direction people face, or even the edifice they are standing in when praying.  GOD'S focus is on the heart of the king and of the people and their willingness to obey HIS commands.  Only GODly repentance in sincerity and truth leads to salvation and to life through faith in the LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
May peace abundant descend from heaven with life for us and to all Israel, Amen 

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.

One makes little progress in history before finally realizing that it is much easier to repeat an error than to correct it. [Historian of Phillip II, volume III, pg. 177] 

HOSTS OF HEAVEN    
"Then [Micaiah] said, "Indeed, hear now the WORD OF THE LORD! I saw the LORD sitting upon HIS Throne, with all the host of heaven standing in attendance to the right and to the left of HIM." [2 Chronicles (Dibre Hayamin Bet) 18. 18 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

The Prophet Micaiah (means: who is like GOD) was given this notably remarkable vision, he is the only true prophet at the court of the evil King Ahab of Israel.  Ahab, the evil disgusting king of Israel hated Micaiah and called him “the prophet who prophesied nothing good, only evil” concerning him. [see 2 Chronicles/Dibre Hayamin Bet 18. 17] 

There are other various SCRIPTURES that confirm that there certainty are a great host of angels at GOD’S Throne in Heaven.  [see Job/Iyowb 1. 5; Daniel/Danyel 7. 10; Revelation 5. 11]  These are mighty angels and they go forth at the command of the HOLY ALMIGHTY GOD — "Bless the LORD, you HIS angels, who excel in strength, who do HIS bidding, ever heeding the VOICE OF HIS WORD.  Bless the Lord, all you HIS hosts, you ministers of HIS, who do HIS pleasure." [Psalms (Tehillym) 103. 20 – 21 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  This is especially true in connection with their primary function of "ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation." [Hebrews 1. 14] 

As well as the angels, there is another "host of heaven" — the stars which "cannot be numbered." [Jeremiah/Yirmeyah 33. 22]  Angels also, like the stars, are said to be "innumerable." [Hebrews 12. 22]  Both hosts (angels & stars) are mentioned in Nehemiah, "YOU alone are the LORD.  YOU made the heaven, the highest heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and everything on it, the seas and all that is in them.  YOU keep them all alive. the host of heaven prostrate themselves before YOU and worships YOU, LORD GOD." [Nehemiah (Nechemah) 9. 6 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

Angels are often associated with stars in GOD’S HOLY WRITTEN WORD and are even likened to stars on a number of occasions.  However, a third of the angels "did not keep their proper domain." [Jude 6; Revelation 12. 3 - 9] 

Although angels are never to be worshipped [Revelation 22. 8 - 9], Satan, the "anointed cherub" [Ezekiel/Yehezke-El 28. 14], desires to be "like the MOST HIGH GOD" [Isaiah/Yeshayah 14. 14], and he led these now-fallen angels into an immense rebellion against their CREATOR which continues to this day. 

It is a definite fact, they have become associated with both the sky-imagers of astrology and the corresponding graven images of paganism.  Paul warned that such idol worship was, in reality, demon worship.  "The things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to GOD." [1 Corinthians 10. 20]  It is this particular "host of heaven" which all devotees of false religions, ancient or currently existing, are really worshipping when they reject the TRUE GOD OF CREATION and put their faith in some feature or expression of the cosmos itself.  The faithful and obedient host of heaven worships the TRUE & LIVING GOD alone, and so must we who are called by HIS PRECIOUS NAME… the NAME that is above all names. 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  Welcome Sabbath – Queen of the week! Sabbath of Chayei Sarah – “Life of Sarah” [Parasha-the appointed reading: Genesis 23:1 - 25:18; 1 Kings 1:1-31; John 4:3-14]
  Blessed are YOU, LORD our GOD, SOVEREIGN of the Universe, WHO makes us holy with YOUR mitzvoth and favours us with the Holy Shabbat, lovingly and graciously given to us, a memorial of the act of creation, first of the holy assemblies, a remembrance for perfect peace, perfect rest.  MOST HOLY ONE, YOU are blessed above all. 
  May you know the joy and happiness that only comes from the righteousness of our LORD MESSIAH Y’SHUA.  Our prayers are that  the HOLY ONE be with you this day and always and may your days be lived in peace and truth.
 

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. . .
We come into this world with a mission, and at the end, the only question is have we fulfilled it. 

HEAVENS OPENED    
"Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And HE WHO sat on him was called FAITHFUL and TRUE, and in righteousness HE judges and makes war." [Revelation 19. 11] 

This is the ultimate zenith in HOLY SCRIPTURE reference to when ALMIGHTY CREATOR GOD‘S opened heavens.  At times, such as in this verse, heaven is opened in judgment, other times in blessings.  In some cases in point, it is the atmospheric heaven that is opened, other times it is the heaven of heavens where the Majestic Throne of GOD stands. 

The first mention of the heavens being opened happened at an exact time when the RIGHTEOUS ONE brought the world-destroying flood of Noah’s day: "In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened." [Genesis/Bereshith 7. 11] 

The second opening of heaven was quite different, however, as it spoke of a blessing when in the Wilderness, the POWER OF GOD "commanded the skies above, and opened the doors of heaven, and rained down manna upon them for food, and gave them of the bread of heaven.  Men ate angels' food; HE sent them provision in plenty.  HE caused an east wind to blow in the heavens; and drove the south wind by HIS might.  HE also rained meat on them like dust, feathered fowl like the sands of the sea." [Psalms (Tehillym) 78. 23 - 27 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

In view of that we see, the HOLY ONE commanded and the windows of heaven rained down the waters of death; and at the perfect time, the doors of heaven rained down the bread of life!  While in captivity, Ezekiel also saw the heavens opened in judgment and he "saw visions of GOD." [Ezekiel/Yehezke-El 1. 1]   Malachi the prophet was told to "Bring the full tithe into the public storehouse and let there be food in MY House, and thus put ME to test — said the LORD OF HOSTS.  "I will surely open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it." [Malachi (Malakhi) 3. 10 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

When the LORD MESSIAH Y’SHUA was baptized, the heavens were opened and men heard the great testimony from the HEAVENLY FATHER, saying, "This is MY BELOVED SON, in whom I am well pleased." [Matthew 3. 16 – 17; also see Mark 1. 10; Luke 3.21]  When Nathanael inquired of the LORD JESUS how HE knew him, HE answered and said to him, "you will see greater things than these... Most assuredly, I say to you, hereafter you shall see heaven open, and the angels of GOD ascending and descending upon the SON OF MAN." [see John 1. 48 – 51] 

Stephen and Peter actually saw the heavens open: "But he (Stephen), being full of the HOLY SPIRIT, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of GOD, and JESUS standing at the right hand of GOD, and said, "Look! I see the heavens opened and the SON OF MAN standing at the right hand of GOD!" [Acts 7. 55 – 56]  The Apostle Peter "saw heaven opened" [Acts 10. 11], and an object like a great sheet bound at the four corners, descending to him and was let down to the earth… three times, then the object was taken up into heaven again.  On the Isle of Patmos, the Apostle John recounted that he looked "and behold, a door standing open in heaven" [Revelation 4. 1], and he saw the LORD on HIS Throne. 

How blessed we are to have these accounts (12 specific references, 4 in the OLD COVENANT. 8 in the NEW) and we have eye-witness evidence of things that were seen.  We too have a promised time awaiting. . .SCRIPTURE gives a glorious account of the heavens opening and rolling up like a scroll [Isaiah/Yeshayah 34. 4], and we as well will see our MAGNIFICENT SAVIOR: "Behold, HE is coming with clouds, and every eye will see HIM, even those who pierced HIM... HE WHO testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming quickly." Amen.  Even so, come, LORD JESUS!  The grace of our LORD Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH be with you all. Amen." [Revelation 1. 7; 22. 20 – 21] 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  As we affectionately bid farewell to Sabbath, may your week be filled with offering praise and glory to our HEAVENLY KING. 
Vital part of the path to glory:  “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  
  “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” Romans 8:18 
  “Therefore we do not lose heart.  Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.  For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen.  For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 
  ”May the GOD of all grace, who called us to HIS eternal glory by MESSIAH Y’SHUA, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.” 1 Peter 5:10 

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. . .
O come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD our MAKER
 
EZEKIEL'S VISION  (Part 6 - Conclusion)    
RESURRECTION & ASCENSION:  "Above the expanse over their heads was the semblance of a throne, in appearance like sapphire; and on top, upon this semblance of a throne, there was the semblance of a HUMAN (Manform.  From what appeared as HIS loins up, I saw a gleam as of amber  what looked like a fire encased in a frame; and from what appeared as HIS loins down, I saw what looked like fire.  There was a radiance all about HIM." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El1. 26 - 27 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 
 
Suddenly Ezekiel was transported above the firmament where he saw a throne, and sitting on that throne was a MAN.  From the scene of death in verse 25, Ezekiel was ushered into an exalted setting.  His vision had clearly taken him through the resurrection of the LORD JESUS and HIS ascension into Heaven, for Ezekiel now saw KING Y’SHUA sitting on a throne.  Y’SHUA, the LORD ETERNALtoday is "seated at the right hand of power far above all principality and power and might and dominion" [Ephesians 1. 20 - 21] waiting to return to this earth as the VICTORIOUS KING OF GLORY.  The RIGHTEOUS MESSIAHpresent ministry is that of INTERCESSOR (ADVOCATE) with the FATHER on behalf of the Saints. [1 John 2. 1] 
 
In verses 26 thru 28, Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH is described in all of HIS glory being the exalted KING and MAJESTIC RULER OF HEAVEN & EARTH.  The brilliance of HIS HOLINESS is pictured here in Ezekiel just as it is in Revelation 1:13-16 where Y’SHUA is shown as having the same glory as the HEAVENLY FATHER seated on the throne.  Revelation shows the scene of THE THRONE and the ONE seated on the throne surrounded by an emerald rainbow (depicting Eternal Life "Immediately I was in the SPIRIT; and behold, a Throne set in Heaven, and ONE sat on the Throne.  And HWHO sat there was like a Jasper and a Sardis stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the Throne, in appearance like an emerald." [Revelation 4. 2 - 3]  The LORD Y’SHUA is the PERFECT BLAMELESS LAMB WHO takes the scroll from the hand of the ONE seated on the Throne. [Revelation 5. 5 - 7] 
 
"Like the appearance of the bow which shines in the clouds on a day of rain, such was the appearance of the surrounding radiance.  That was the appearance of the semblance of the PRESENCE OF THE LORD.  When I beheld it, I flung myself down on my face and I heard the VOICE of ONE speaking." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El1. 28 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 
 
"The appearance of the bow which shines in the clouds on a day of rain" would be the Rainbow round about the Throne.  The rainbow was a pledge of ELOHIYMfaithfulness to HIS COVENANTS.  "I have set Mbow in the clouds, and it shall serve as a sign of the Covenant between ME and the earth." [Genesis (Bereshith9. 13 Tanakh, Torah]  The ALMIGHTY BLESSED ONE sits upon the Throne. . . splendid, dazzling, and terrible; but encompassed about by the Covenant of Grace. 
 
Ezekiel's response to what he saw is instructive for us today.  Ezekiel saw the glory of his ESHADDAI, how impressive his OMNIPOTENT GOD is, and he could respond in only one way... he fell on his face.  In submission and humility, Ezekiel prostrated himself before the AWESOME LORD GOD, CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE.  Down through the centuries, this has been the only possible response for all men and women who have plain and genuinely seen the glory of YEHOWAH in the risen LORD JESUS CHRIST. 
 
Throughout the pages of HOLY SCRIPTUREwe are shown the impressiveness of the HOLY ANOINTED ONE .  In Ezekiel 1, we are given an overview of HIS entire life and ministry.  The BELOVED Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH came from Heaven to earth.  His the GOD/MAN, Hwalked a perfect walk in obedience to the FATHER.  The LORD JESUS is the blessed forever REDEEMER  SAVIOR  KING WHO will return as the LORD OF GLORY.  The ANOINTED ONE died for our sins, but arose jubilantly victorious over death and is now seated at the right hand of the OMNIPOTENT FATHER GOD.  Anyone who sees the LOVING MESSIAH, the LORD JESUS CHRIST OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES cannot help but willingly fall in submission before HIM. 
 
Ultimately, Ezekiel "heard the VOICE OF ONE that spoke." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El1. 28 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  There is a natural progression:  Ezekiel saw  fell  heard.   It is crucial that when a person fully sees and comprehends the incomparable greatness of JESUS OF NAZARETH, he will fall before the LORD and respond to MESSIAH'leading.  Ezekiel was asked to do some strange things during his life [Ezekiel/Yehezke-El 4. 1-6], but he never questioned his HEAVENLY FATHER, the ALMIGHTY OMNIPRESENT GOD... Ezekiel was obedient! 
 
When you see the LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH of the HOLY SCRIPTURES, you will also experience how great and impressive Hassuredly is.  Now, you will want to do whatever Hasks of you!  First, the LORD Y’SHUA requires you to accept HIM personally as your only SAVIOR, REDEEMER & LORD. . . then to follow HIM in obedience to HIS teachings as it is written in HIS HOLY WRITTEN WORD.  Then, when you understand how absolutely, thoroughly, unconditionally remarkably great the LORD JESUS is, it won't be difficult to accept and follow the GLORIOUS MASTER implicitly.  Amen!  What a WONDERFUL SAVIOR His!  Hallelu'YAH! such amazing love! 
 
 
Sha’alu (Prayfor the Shalom (Peaceof Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  The LORD shall yet comfort Zion and shall choose Jerusalem.  The wise serve the LORD OF GLORY out of their great love for HIM, in reverent fear. 
 
 
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. . .
We make our future by the best use of the present. 

EZEKIEL'S VISION  (Part 5 of 6)    
LED BY THE SPIRIT:  "And when the Creatures moved forward, the wheels moved at their sides; and when the Creatures were borne above the earth, the wheels were borne too.  Wherever the SPIRIT impelled them to go, they went — wherever the SPIRIT impelled them — and the wheels were borne alongside them; for the SPIRIT OF THE CREATURES was in the wheels.  When those moved, these moved; when those stood still, these stood still; and when those were borne above the earth, the wheels were borne alongside them - for the SPIRIT of the Creatures was in the wheels." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 1. 19 - 21 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

The ministry of the LORD JESUS displayed the truth of these verses.  As MESSIAH Y’SHUA walked on this earth, HE was led in all things by the SPIRIT OF GOD.  This reality in HIS life is shown from the very beginning of HIS ministry:  "Then JESUS was led up by the SPIRIT into the wilderness to be tempted by the Devil." [Matthew 4. 1] 

DEATH OF MESSIAH (Foreshadowed): "Above the heads of the CREATURES was a form, an expanse, with an awe-inspiring gleam as of crystal was spread out above their heads.  Under the expanse, each had one pair of wings extended toward those of the others; and each had another pair covering its body.  When they moved, I could hear the sound of their wings like the sound of mighty waters, like the sound of SHADDAI (THE ALMIGHTY ONE) a tumult like the sound of an army.  When they stood still, they would let their wings droop.  From above the expanse over their heads came a sound.  When they stood still, they would let their wings droop." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 1. 22 - 25 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

When ELOHIYM created the universe, HE said there was to be "a firmament, an expanse, in the midst of the water, that it may separate water from water." [Genesis (Bereshith) 1. 6 Tanakh, Torah]  After the creation of the firmament, CREATOR GOD "called the expanse, Sky (Heaven)." [Genesis (Bereshith) 1. 8 Tanakh, Torah]  Over the LIVING CREATURES was a firmament or expanse.  The LORD JESUS performed HIS ministry under Heaven… on the earth.  HE walked and talked as no man had ever done.   After Y’SHUA had calmed the wind and the waves, the disciples marveled, saying, "WHO can this be? that even the winds and the sea obey HIM?" [Matthew 8. 27]  It was said of JESUS — "No man ever spoke like this MAN." [John 7. 46]  The uniqueness of the LORD MESSIAH is captured when the sound of the CREATURES' wings is said to be "like the sound of mighty waters of SHADDAI, the ALMIGHTY — a tumult like the din of an army." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 1. 24 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  The LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH was unique because HE IS GOD IN HUMAN FLESH. 

A climactic point is reached at this place in the chapter.  Wings have pictured the protection of the ALMIGHTY ONE but the next two verses state, "when they stood still, they would let their wings droop (let down their wings)." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 1. 24 - 25 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

The LORD Y’SHUA, the HOLY ANOINTED ONE promised, "If I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all peoples to MYSELF." [John 12. 32]  The LIVING CREATURES STOOD STILL. . . JESUS went to the cross.  It was at that time, and at that time only in the life of Y’SHUA that the wings of GOD'S protection were let down.  The depravity and filth of sin of all mankind were placed on HIM at Golgotha’s Calvary.   In fulfillment of the prophecy, "MY GOD, MY GOD, why have YOU abandoned ME?  Why so far from delivering ME and from MY anguished roaring?" [Psalms (Tehillym) 22. 1 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  JESUS, the CHRIST OF CALVARY cried out at that time — "ELI, ELI, lama sabachthani , that is — MY GOD, MY GOD, why have YOU forsaken ME?" [Matthew 27. 46]   The crowning moment of HIS ministry was coming, but first HE had to endure the crucifixion.  Y’SHUA had to suffer, abandoned by GOD THE FATHER.  However, the LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH would soon rise as SOVEREIGN GOD OF THE UNIVERSE. 

...to be continued 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  May our HEAVENLY FATHER hear our prayers, that our long-awaited MESSIAH Y’SHUA, the SON OF DAVID, KING of kings comes quickly.  And, may HIS Holy Temple be rebuilt speedily, even in our day, Amen!  May you be blessed with love, hope, health, wisdom and GOD’S incredibly amazing grace as you seek HIM. 
  Our WONDERFUL SAVIOR is coming very soon, signs are all around us, lift up your eyes and behold our MAGNIFICENT REDEEMER. 


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. . .
No matter how great the loss, this faith of ours always remains. 

EZEKIEL'S VISION  (Part 4 of 6)    
WHEELS & FIRE:  "Such then was the appearance of the LIVING CREATURES, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like torches.  Fire was moving about among the living creatures; the fire had a radiance, and lightning issued from it.  And the LIVING CREATURES ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning.  As I gazed on the LIVING CREATURES, I saw one wheel on the earth next to each of the Four-Faced CREATURES.  As for the appearance and structure of the wheels, they gleamed like beryl.  All four had the same likeness; the appearance and structure of each was as of two wheels cutting through each other — a wheel in the middle of a wheel.  And when they moved, each could move in any one of four directions; they did not turn aside when they moved.  Their rims were so tall they were frightening; for the rims of all four were covered all over with eyes." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 1. 13 - 18 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

The LIVING CREATURES are presented as having the appearance of burning coals of fire and torches.  The NEW COVENANT tells us that "Our GOD is a CONSUMING FIRE." [Hebrews 12. 29]  The OLD COVENANT, David said: "The LORD is my LIGHT." [Psalms (Tehillym) 27. 1 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  MESSIAH Y’SHUA, when addressing the Pharisees stated emphatically that HE is "The LIGHT OF THE WORLD." [John 8. 12]  The FIRE and the LIGHT went up and down around the creatures.  The LORD JESUS is "the BRIGHTNESS of HIS (the FATHER'S) glory and the EXPRESS IMAGE OF HIS PERSON." [Hebrews 1. 3]  Our MIGHTY GOD is a CONSUMING FIRE and the ETERNAL LIGHT. 

The LIVING CREATURES "ran and returned."  To return to a place, one has to have been there before.   At the beginning of this age, the SON OF GOD stepped down from Heaven and for 33 years lived on this planet.   As the LORD Y’SHUA was leaving Har ha'Zeitim (Mount of Olives) to return to Heaven, an angelic messenger made the promise, "This same JESUS, WHO was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw HIM go into heaven." [Acts 1. 11]   Ezekiel portrays the return of KING JESUS when it stated that the LIVING CREATURES "returned like the appearance of a flash of lightning." [v. 14]  Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH HIMSELF stated, "as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines even unto the west, so shall also the coming of the SON OF MAN be." [Matthew 24. 27] 

There is a vivid description of the wheels which symbolism declares a basic truth about the person of the LORD Y’SHUA.  Speaking of the birth of the MESSIAH in Beit’Lehem, Micah said, "(THE ONE) WHOSE origin is from of old, from ancient times." [Micah (Michah) 5. 2 Tanakh, Nevi'im]   Y’SHUA is the EXALTED LORD, HE is Eternal!  JESUS is GOD EVERLASTING.  The "likeness" represented by the "wheel upon the earth" is the GOD/MAN.  "A wheel in the middle of a wheel" represents the truth of the incarnate SON in-dwelt by the SPIRIT OF YEHOWAH for power in HIS ministry. 

The rim of the wheels being tall and frightening speak of the majestic, awesome greatness of the PERSONAGE of CHRIST JESUS.  The eyes around the rims speak of HIS omniscience; HE sees all, including the thoughts and intents of the heart.  JESUS is the WONDROUS LORD and is to be feared and worshiped. 

The wheels also speak of the power of the HOLY SPIRIT united with the LORD MESSIAH Y’SHUA.  "And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the Throne and the four LIVING CREATURES, and in the midst of the elders, stood a LAMB as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven SPIRITS OF GOD sent out into all the earth." [Revelation 5. 6]  Zechariah declares that "those seven are the eyes of the LORD, which scan to-and-fro ranging over the whole earth." [Zechariah (Zecharyah) 4. 10 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

Ultimately, the Book of Revelation concludes in telling of the "Four LIVING CREATURES full of eyes in front and in back.  The first LIVING CREATURE was like a LION, the second LIVING CREATURE like a CALF, the third LIVING CREATURE had a face like a MAN, and the fourth LIVING CREATURE was like a flying EAGLE.  The four LIVING CREATURES, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within.  And they do not rest day or night, saying — "Holy! Holy! Holy! LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, WHO was and is and is to come!" [Revelation 4. 6 - 8]

  YOURS, O LORD, is the greatness and the power, the glory and the victory, and the majesty; for all that is in the heavens and in the earth are YOURS; YOURS is the Kingdom, O LORD, and YOU are exalted as head above all.  Praised be the LORD to WHOM all praise is due for ever and ever!  Praised be YOU, O LORD our GOD, RULER of the world, WHO has chosen us from among all peoples and has given us YOUR Law.  Thank YOU for redeeming us, forgiving us, and cleansing us from all our sins. Let us not be moved from YOUR path of righteousness we pray, Amen! 

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. . .
Words have the power to destroy or to create.  So be careful what you say, like lethal weapons, words can become involuntary manslaughter. 

EZEKIEL'S VISION (Part 3 of 6)    
HIS PERSON & WORK:  "Each of them had a Human face (at the front); each of the four had a face of a Lion on the right; each of the four had the face of an Ox on the left; and each of the four had the face of an Eagle (at the back)." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 1. 10 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

In studying the life of the LORD Y’SHUA, we must look at the Four GOSPELS: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.  Each GOSPEL sets a different and distinct light of the life and ministry of our BLESSED REDEEMER; and when taken together, they present a complete picture of HIM.  The GOSPELS reveal the meaning of Ezekiel's creatures and their Four Faces. . .

The GOSPEL of Matthew was written to the Jewish people and proclaimed Y’SHUA as their KING; HE is the MESSIAH, the ANOINTED RULER.  The genealogy given in Matthew 1, shows that JESUS was in the royal line of King David through HIS legal father, Joseph.  The book of Matthew portray Messiah Y’SHUA as King, the LION. 

Mark's GOSPEL presents Y’SHUA as a SERVANT.  There is no genealogy of JESUS given in Mark because no one would be interested in the lineage of a servant.  The face of the Ox accurately pictures the truth of the LORD Y’SHUA as a SERVANT. 

Luke declares that the LORD Y’ESHUA is the PERFECT MAN and gives another genealogy tracing HIM back through HIS Mother, Miryam (Mary); and her, from Adam, the first man.  There would definitely be great interest in the genealogy of a PERFECT MAN.  Therefore, there is no better choice to portray Y’SHUA as a MAN than the face of a MAN. 

John shows the CHRIST JESUS' DEITY, the SON OF THE MOST HIGH GOD.  The genealogy that John presents begins and ends with the ALMIGHTY OMNIPOTENT CREATOR — "no beginning or ending" — HE has always been.   The fourth face is that of an EAGLE, which perfectly represents John's teaching that MESSIAH Y’SHUA is the HOLY ETERNAL ONE.  [How interesting…the eagle is "king of the birds" — the most feared enemy of the snake (also Satan)]. 

The verse states, "the four had...the face of a LION on the right side; the face of an OX on the left side." Two sides make up a whole.  The two-fold ministry of the LORD Y’SHUA is portrayed in the GOSPELS of Matthew and Mark:  JESUS came first as a SERVANT, and will one day return as the SOVEREIGN KING.  HE came the first time as the LAMB OF GOD to die. . . and HE will return as the LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH to reign forevermore. 

DIRECTION & DELIVERANCE:  "Such were their faces. As for their wings, they were separated: Above, each had two touching those of the others, while the other two covered its body. And each could move in the direction of any of its faces; they went wherever the SPIRIT impelled them to go, without turning, when they moved." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 1. 11 - 12 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

"The wings stretched upward" speaks of our SAVIOR'S confident reliance upon ELOHEY.  "The wings covering the creatures" speak of the ALMIGHTY’S complete protection.  Two phrases repeated throughout the remainder of the chapter, "they went every one straight forward" and "wherever the SPIRIT impelled them to go, they went" — tell of the one direction and purpose the LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH had in HIS life.  HE went wherever the "SPIRIT OF YAH" led HIM.  In all HIS entire life, the ANOINTED ONE never veered from the course that was set before HIM. 

. . . to be continued 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  We bid farewell to Shabbat with the Havdallah Service. Havdallah (separation) is the ceremony that marks the symbolic end of the holy day of Shabbat and ushers in a new week. The ceremony, consisting of lighting the special candle, blessing the wine, and smelling the spices, is intended to require a person to use all five senses taste the wine, smell the spices, see the flames of the candle and feel its warmth, and hear the blessings.  After the ceremony, it is customary to say together: “Thus we celebrate the LORD GOD OF ISRAEL WHO separates the sacred from the mundane and forgives our sins.  May it be YOUR will, O LORD, that our home becomes a sanctuary worthy of YOUR PRESENCE, wherein YOUR HOLY NAME is hallowed, that YOU come and grant YOUR blessings on us! Amen” 
  The CREATOR, PRESERVER and HEIR of the Universe has once for all made purification of man’s sin and gave him eternal salvation.  So, encourage one another.  Even, so much the more, as you see the DAY OF MESSIAH'S imminent return nearing.  For infinite is HIS mighty power, HIS ineffable (inexpressible, beyond words) glory, even so is HIS glorious love. HalleluYAH!  
  Grace be with you each day of the new week. 

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. . .
Visit the ill out of responsibility, the person out of love. 

EZEKIEL'S VISION  (Part 1 of 6)    
Chapter 1 of Ezekiel can be understood as you notice two things:  The words like and likeness are used 16 times in this one chapter, clearly showing that the passage is a picture or illustration of something; and that Ezekiel saw a vision of HOLY GOD.  This fact is apparent from the first and last verses, "The heavens opened and I saw visions of ELOHIYM." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 1. 1 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  "...that was the appearance of the semblance of the PRESENCE OF THE LORD." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 1. 28 Tanakh, Nevi'im] The Glory of the LORD has been manifested in many ways: "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]   Ezekiel saw the glory of the FATHER in the PERSON of HIS SON, JESUS.  From this vision, John described for us the Life, Person and Ministry of the LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH. 

TIME & PLACE OF THE VISION:  "In the thirtieth year (possibly the 30th year of captivity, since Israelites had begun to be carried away to Babylon during the reign of Manasseh), on the fifth day of the fourth month, when I was in the community of exiles by the Chebar Canal, the heavens opened and I saw visions of GOD.  On the fifth day of the month — it was the fifth year of the exile of King Jehoiachin — the WORD OF THE LORD came to Ezekiel the priest, son of Buzi, by the Chebar Canal, in the land of the Chaldeans.  And the hand of the LORD came upon him there." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 1. 1 - 3 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

These verses introduce Ezekiel the priest.  The time is around 593 BC/BCE, seven years before Jerusalem was captured by Babylon .  Ezekiel is in captivity and is standing at the River Chebar where he receives "a vision of ELOHIYM." {This awe-inspiring vision unfolds for us in verses 4 – 28} 

FIRST COMING:  "I looked, and lo, a stormy wind came sweeping out of the North — a huge cloud and flashing fire, surrounded by a radiance; and in the center of it, in the center of the fire, a gleam as of amber." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 1. 4 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

Immediately Ezekiel looked and saw ONE coming from the North.  The terminology in this verse has been used before to speak of ELOHIYM and HIS PRESENCE (KABOD/GLORY).  The ALMIGHTY spoke to Job "out of the whirlwind." [Job/Iyowb 38. 1]  During the wilderness wanderings, the HOLY LORD GOD revealed HIMSELF to the people of Israel through the Tabernacle worship and HE led them through the movement of a CLOUD by day and a FIRE by night. [Exodus/Shemot 40. 34 - 38] 

Also, the GREAT GOD OF ISRAEL indicated that HIS dwelling place is in the North part of the universe, "For what lifts a man comes not from the east, or the west, or from the south for ELOHIYM is HE WHO gives judgment; HE brings down one man, HE lifts up another." [Psalms (Tehillym) 75. 6 - 7 Tanakh, Nevi'im]   These verses seem to confirm the truth that our LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH came from the "North" — from Heaven — when HE became MAN . . . DEITY took on the form of man clothed in flesh.

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel !
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  We greet, salute, and encourage each saint in the LORD JESUS CHRIST keeping you always in our prayers.  Remember, life's challenges work out for the best, when we recognize what appear to be obstacles as opportunities to develop ourselves for the better.  We realize that all things come from the invisible hand of GOD OMNIPOTENT that guides our life. May HIS grace be with you. 

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. . .
Silence is a fence for wisdom. [Pirkei Avot 3:13] 

EZEKIEL'S VISION  (Part 2 of 6)    
MAN or BEAST:  "Out of the midst of it came the likeness of FOUR LIVING CREATURES. And this was their appearance: They had the figures of a man.  However, each had four faces, and each of them had four wings; the legs of each were (fused into) a single rigid leg, and the feet of each were like a single calf's hoof, cleft in front, and their sparkle was like the luster of burnished copper.  They had human hands below their wings.  The four of them had their faces and their wings on their four sides.  Each one's wings touched those of the other.  They did not turn when they moved, each could move in the direction of any of its faces." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 1. 5 - 9 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

The creatures are symbolic of a Man — then it continues to describe various aspects of the Creatures... wings, hands, and feet are mentioned.   Each characteristic is picturesque in its illustration of the ONE WHO is GOD and became MAN.  This is crucial (important, extremely necessary) to understanding the chapter. 

In this chapter, wings are seen covering, joined, pointed up-or-down, and described in a number of different ways.  The many uses of wings illustrate ALMIGHTY GOD'S care and protection.  "HE will cover you with HIS feathers; you will find refuge under HIS wings." [Psalms (Tehillym) 91. 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  These creatures have wings covering their bodies, picturing protection.  MESSIAH Y’SHUA, in HIS earthly ministry, was cared for and protected by the MIGHTY OMNIPOTENT GOD OF HEAVEN. 

Their straight feet picture legs without joints, the feet could go in only one direction.  As is recorded: "Survey the course you take, and all your ways will prosper.  Do not swerve to the right or the left; keep your feet from evil." [Proverbs (Mishle) 4. 26 - 27 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  This is a counsel to believers to walk in straight paths; but, the passage also is characteristic of the earthly walk of MESSIAH Y’SHUA.  The LORD JESUS always went in the direction HIS FATHER had laid out for HIM.  HE did not turn to the left or the right, but was perfect in all HIS ways. 

The sole of the creatures feet was "like the sole of a calf's foot; and they sparkled like the color of burnished copper."  The LORD Y’SHUA came first as the "LAMB OF GOD" [John 1. 29], and someday soon, HE will return as the "LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH." [Revelation 5. 5]  The calf's foot speaks of HIS "first coming" as the SAVIOR of the world.  In HOLY SCRIPTURE, copper indicates judgment and speaks of HIS "second coming" as the SOVEREIGN JUDGE. 

The hands under the wings speak of the accomplishment of CHRIST JESUS' ministry as a the perfect SON OF MAN.  HE was protected and guided by FATHER GOD, but voluntarily limited HIMSELF in HIS earthly ministry to that which HIS humanity would permit.  Verses five-thru-nine therefore speak of THE ONE WHO came from Heaven, took on flesh, was led by the SPIRIT OF GOD, walked a perfect path, and is both SAVIOR and SOVEREIGN LORD & KING.

”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  Welcome Sabbath!  Come, let us welcome the Bride of the Week... may its radiance illumine our hearts as we kindle the candles of Sabbath!  The reading for this Sabbath Day is Vayera - “And He Appeared” [Genesis 18:1 - 22:24; 2 Kings 4:1-37; Luke 17:28-37] 
Light is the symbol of the DIVINE, the LORD is my LIGHT and my SALVATION. 
 Light is the symbol of the DIVINE in man; the spirit of man is the light of the LORD. 
  Light is the symbol of the DIVINE Law, for the commandment is a Lamp and the Law is a Light. 
   Light is the symbol of Israel's mission. I, the LORD, have set you for a covenant of the people, for a light to the nations. 
As you celebrate the day, remember to continually give thanks in all things and share Sabbath’s sweetness with those around you.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
If you cannot endure the bad, you'll not live to witness the good. 

COMFORT MY PEOPLE    
"My life was bereft of peace; I have forgotten prosperity and what happiness was.  I thought my strength and my hope had perished from the LORD.  To recall my distress and my misery was wormwood and poison; whenever I thought of them, I was bowed low." [Lamentations (Eicha) 3. 17 - 20 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

Jeremiah's heart is in agonizing struggle and again mourns, "YOU have screened YOURSELF off with a cloud that no prayer may pass through.  YOU have made us filth and refuse in the midst of the peoples.  All our enemies loudly rail against us.  Panic and pitfall, death and destruction are our lot.  My foes have snared me like a bird, without any cause.  They have ended my life in a pit and cast stones at me, waters flowed over my head; I said — I am lost!" [Lamentations (Eicha) 3. 44 - 46; 52 - 54 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

Again today Israel is on a desert road with sufferings at every turn.  GOD ALMIGHTY, however, often proves HIS love for us exactly when HE seems to be hard towards us.  There is so much we can learn in HIS paths of chastening.  In trouble and suffering and when HIS chastening hand is upon us, we can come to know the HOLY ONE as our LOVING FATHER more then any other time.  Accepting HIS chastening is like a key unlocking the HEAVENLY FATHER'S heart with all HIS blessings and kindness.  We will find that afterwards HE will shower us all the more with an abundance of good things.  And GOD HIMSELF will be glorified if we follow HIS leading wholeheartedly. 

Our HOLY GOD, the COMMANDER OF THE LORD’S ARMY, will provide a way of deliverance, for HIS hand is not too short to save nor HIS ear too dull to hear when HIS children cry to HIM. [Isaiah/Yeshayah 59. 1]  HE will not desert HIS people, nor will HE abandon them to their enemies. 

"As I live — declares the LORD GOD — I will reign over you with a strong hand, with an outstretched arm, and with fury poured out, I will rule over you.  With a strong hand and an outstretched arm and overflowing fury I will bring you out from the peoples and gather you from the lands where you are scattered, and I will bring you into the wilderness of the peoples; and there I will enter into judgment with you face to face." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 20. 33 - 35 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

"When you call ME and come and pray to ME, I will give heed to you.  You will search for ME and find ME, if only you seek ME wholeheartedly.  I will be at hand for you — declares the LORD — and I will restore your fortunes.  And I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places to which I have banished you — declares the LORD — and I will bring you back to the place from which I have exiled you." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 29. 12 - 14 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

"I will exchange their (the remnant of Israel) disgrace for praise and fame in all the earth.  At that time I will gather you, and at that time I will bring you home; for I will make you renowned and famous among all the peoples on earth, when I restore your fortunes before your very eyes — said the LORD." [Zephaniah (Tsefanyah) 3. 19 - 20 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  "Your GOD the LORD is in your midst, the MIGHTY ONE WHO brings triumph.  HE will rejoice over you and be glad, HE will shout over you with jubilation, HE will quiet you with HIS renewed love as in the days of old, HE will rejoice over you with singing." [Zephaniah (T’sefanyah) 3. 17 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

The steadfast love of the BLESSED CREATOR & REDEEMER never ceases, nor has it ceased for Israel today.  The present darkness of this world will not last forever.  Mankind awaits the coming RIGHTEOUS KING WHO will make all things new.  From the moment our LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH returns, HIS glorious righteousness will shine into all nations and they will share in the blessings and peace of HIS Glorious Kingdom as well.  Through it all, HE will uphold us with HIS righteous right hand, how can we help but totally trust such faithfulness! 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5

  We offer YOU, our ETERNAL GOD, thanks and praise as we glorify YOUR NAME.  Happy are we who praise YOU and declare YOUR holiness early and late, morning and evening — Hear, O Israel!  the LORD our GOD, the LORD is ONE.  Blessed be HIS NAME, WHOSE glorious Kingdom is for ever and ever. 
  Today, sirens are sounding across the country as rockets are being fired at Israel from Gaza.  For the first time since 2014, the IDF has ordered the closure of schools and businesses from the Gaza region until Tel Aviv.  The IDF is preparing for heavy rocket fire and further military action.  Israelis have been warned to remain in close proximity to bomb shelters.  We call on our brothers and sisters around the world to PRAY FOR ISRAEL.  Please pray for the safety and security of the People of Israel and for the military success of the IDF. 

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. . .
Worry does not empty tomorrows struggles — it empties your strength for today.

LESSONS LEARNED    
"Go and learn what this means — I desire mercy and not sacrifice.  For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance." [Matthew 9. 13)
 

The LORD Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH "came into the world to save sinners" [1 Timothy 1. 15], and continues to call all who would be HIS disciples to "learn from [and of] ME" [Matthew 11. 29]; and the text contains the first use of "learn" in the NEW COVENANT, thus signifying a basic item we must learn when we become true followers of the SAVIOR. 

MESSIAH stressed that the ALMIGHTY ONE cared nothing about the ritualistic offering of animal sacrifices, as such, but rather desired understanding of the meaning of those sacrifices, accompanied by the motivating love and faith of a repentant heart.  HE referred them back to their own SCRIPTURES:  "For I desire mercy, not sacrifice; obedience to GOD, rather than burnt offerings." [Hoses (Hoshea) 6. 6 Tanakh, Nevi’im]  This is generally difficult, but it is the most crucial fundamental lesson to learn by one seeking forgiveness and salvation. 

There are continually many lessons to learn afterwards — most will be difficult even for sincere, believing CHRISTians.  The Apostle Paul comments about one of them he had learned the hard way,  "Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content." [Philippians 4. 11]  Another intricate but very essential lesson has to do with the CHRISTian humility in leadership, understanding the WRITTEN WORD — "that you may learn in us not to think beyond what is written, that none of you may be puffed up on behalf of one against the other." [1 Corinthians 4. 6]  Because, "all SCRIPTURE is given by inspiration of GOD, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of GOD may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." [2 Timothy 3. 16 - 17] 

Even in HIS perfect humanity, the LORD Y’SHUA had lessons to learn — "though HE was a SON, yet HE learned obedience by the things which HE suffered." [Hebrews 5. 8] 

Ultimately, having learned these and many other such lessons, we must not forget them.  Paul, in his final letter, so reminds us to — "continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from WHOM you have learned them,  and that from childhood you have known the HOLY SCRIPTURES, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in CHRIST JESUS." [2 Timothy 3. 14 - 15]  May we learn and be able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  When things around you appear dark and terrifying, hold on to the promises of LORD GOD.  HE is in complete control.  "The ROCK!  — HIS deeds are perfect; Yes! all HIS ways are just; a FAITHFUL GOD, never false, true and just is HE." [Deuteronomy/Devarim 32. 4]  Great and mighty is our MERCIFUL & LOVING GOD.  Believe on Y’SHUA, the LOVING SAVIOR, for because of HIM we can face tomorrow and be comforted now knowing we have been changed for a reason, transformed, not for a season, but transformed for Eternal Life. 
  A special “Thank you” to all who served this country, our prayer is that each of you and your descendants know the GREAT GOD OF HEAVEN personally. 

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. . .
Many people speak with tremendous authority from the depths of their self-induced ignorance and cannot see they are actually in bondage. 

SIGNS - SUN, MOON, STARS    
"When the LORD delivered the Amorites before the children of Israel, Joshua spoke to the LORD; he said in the presence of the Israelites: — Stand still, O sun, at Gibeon, O moon, in the Valley of Aijalon! — So the sun stood still and the moon halted, while the nation wreaked revenge upon its enemies.  Thus the sun halted in mid-heaven, and did not press on to set for a whole day; for the LORD fought for Israel .  Neither before nor since has there ever been such a day, when the LORD heeded the words spoken by a man." [Joshua (Yehoshua) 10. 12 - 14 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

When Joshua and the children of Israel encountered an alliance of nations under a leader who called himself, "Adoni-Zedek (lord of righteousness)."  However, the ONLY TRUE GOD WHO alone is righteous, defeated and crushed this pompous, egotistical heathen.  The SUPREME ONE fought for Israel by casting down large hailstones from heaven on them and there were more who died from the hailstones than the children of Israel killed with the sword. [Joshua/Yehoshua 10. 11] 

As from the beginning, so will the end be, CREATOR GOD will again use the sun, moon and stars as signs of HIS return.  The UTMOST HIGH & LOFTY LORD GOD will thus commence HIS judgments on the unbelieving world.  "Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken." [Matthew 24. 29]  "The sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood." [Revelation 6. 12]  "A third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened.  A third of the day did not shine, and likewise the night." [Revelation 8. 12] 

The five kings who fought alongside Adoni-Zedek fled and hid themselves in a cave.  And Joshua and the men of Israel put their feet on the necks of these enemies, then killed them. [Joshua/Yehoshua 10. 16 - 24]  Likewise, in Revelation we see that "the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains and said to the mountains and rocks — Fall on us and hide us from the face of HIM WHO sits on the Throne and from the wrath of the LAMB! — For the Great Day of HIS wrath has come, and who is able to stand?" [Revelation 6. 15 - 17] 

"Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe; Come and tread, for the winepress is full, the vats are overflowing!  For great is their wickedness.  Multitudes upon multitudes in the Valley of Decision ('Emeq Charuts)!  For the Day of the LORD is at hand in the Valley of Decision .  Sun and moon are darkened, and stars will withdraw their brightness.  And the LORD will roar from Zion , and shout aloud from Jerusalem , so that heaven and earth tremble; but the LORD will be a SHELTER to HIS people, a REFUGE to the children of Israel.  And you shall know that I the LORD GOD dwell in Zion , MY Holy Mount.  And Jerusalem shall be holy; nevermore shall strangers pass through it." [Joel (Yoel) 3. 13 – 17 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

In the chaotic world we live in today, we need not be afraid or dismayed.  However, we who are in MESSIAH Y’SHUA are to be strong and courageous knowing the KING OF GLORY will do the fighting for us.  "Then comes the end, when HE delivers the Kingdom to GOD THE FATHER, when HE puts an end to all [other] rule and all authority and power.  For HE must reign till HE has put all enemies under HIS feet.  The last enemy that will be destroyed is death." [1 Corinthians 15. 24 - 26]  We are more then conquerors — "for those who fear HIS NAME, the SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS shall arise with healing in HIS wings." [Malachi/Malakhi 4. 2]  It will be worth it all when we see our LORD, KING JESUS! 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!

  The rest of love freely given — a rest of truth and sincerity — a rest in peace and tranquility, in quiet and safety — a perfect rest in which you find favor.  We bow the head and bend the knee and magnify the KING of kings, the HOLY ONE, praised be HE.  MOST HOLY ONE, YOU are blessed beyond all hymns, praises and consolations that may be uttered in this world.  Amen!  For compassion to be fully realized, it needs bonding.  It requires creating a channel between giver and receiver; a mutuality that extends beyond the moment of need. A bond that continues to live on.  That is the most gratifying result of true compassion.  Befriend the one you have compassion for, ensure that something eternal is built as a result of your compassion.  When things around you appear dark and terrifying, hold on to the promises of the LORD GOD.  HE is in complete control.  "The ROCK! — HIS deeds are perfect.  Yes! all HIS ways are just; a FAITHFUL GOD, never false, true and just is HE." Deuteronomy/Devarim 32:4 
  Have a peaceful, enriching day with the deliberate intention of blessing someone else. 

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. . .
In BIBLICAL days prophets were astir while the world was asleep.  Today the world is astir while churches and synagogues are busy with trivialities. [Abraham Joshua Herschel] 

WRITTEN BY GOD'S FINGER    
"It shall be a sign for all time between ME and the people of Israel .  For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day HE ceased from work and was refreshed.  When HE finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai , HE gave Moses the two TABLES OF THE PACT, stone tablets inscribed with the finger of GOD." [Exodus (Shemot) 31. 17 - 18 Tanakh, Torah] 

"All SCRIPTURE is given by inspiration of GOD" [2 Timothy 3. 16], but this portion of SCRIPTURE was given by direct inscription of SOVEREIGN LORD GOD HIMSELF!  Moses testified, "The LORD gave me the two Tables of Stone inscribed by the finger of GOD, with the exact words that the LORD had addressed to you out of the fire on the day of the Assembly." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 9. 10 Tanakh, Torah]  "HE wrote down on the Tables the terms of the Covenant, the Ten Commandments." [Exodus (Shemot) 34. 28 Tanakh, Torah]  Thus, out of all the HOLY SCRIPTURES, GOD MOST HIGH chose to write this section, not through one of HIS prophets, but with HIS OWN finger!  It should, therefore, be taken literally and seriously. 

It is also significant that these Commandments were structured around a weekly day of rest, remembering GOD'S creation week — six Days of creating and establishing everything in heaven and earth, followed by sanctified day of rest and refreshment. [Genesis/Bereshith 1. 31 - 2. 3; Exodus/Shemot 20. 8 - 11]  Ever since the creation, people have observed a weekly calendar.  The seven-day week (unlike the day, month, and year) has no solar basis at all.  People keep time in weeks simply because THE MASTER CREATOR did!  After each day of creation, GOD declared that there was "evening and there was morning" — but the seventh day was blessed and sanctified, and the phrase "evening and morning" was not declared. [see Genesis/Bereshith 1]  The reason — when we rest IN HIM, GOD gives us an unlimited, continual Sabbath. 

"The Sabbath was made for man" —the LORD Y’SHUA declared. [Mark 2. 27]  Since the MOST HOLY ONE considered the truth of the Literal Creation Week so important that HE inscribed it HIMSELF, we should believe this portion of HIS WORD first of all. . . then follow through by believing everything else HE has told us, and obey (do, observe, follow totally) HIS commands that we might live. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  Welcoming Sabbath Lech Lecha - "Go Out” [Reading: Genesis 12:1 - 17:27; Isaiah 40:27 - 41:16; John 8:51-58]  "You shall call the Sabbath a delight." [Isaiah/Yeshayah 53:13]  Those who keep the Sabbath and call it a delight shall rejoice in GOD'S Kingdom.
  For the TORAH, for the privilege of worship, for the prophets, and for this Sabbath day, given us for sanctification and rest, for honor and for glory, let us thank and bless the LORD our GOD.  Blessed are YOU, our LORD GOD, WHO sanctifies the Sabbath, Israel and all who love YOUR PRECIOUS SON, Y’SHUA the WORD made FLESH. 
  It is a mitzvah to hallow Shabbat by setting it apart from the other days of the week. . .Shabbat must be distinguished from the other days of the week so that those who observe it may be transformed by its holiness. 

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.

Knowledge is what you remember after you forgot everything you learned.  

PROPHECY SPEAKS    
"I will raise up for them a PROPHET for them from among their own people, like yourself; I will put MY words in HIS mouth and HE will speak to them all that I command HIM." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 18. 18 Tanakh, Torah] 

There are two types of prophecy which must be distinguished.  When a prophet foretells (predicts), he represents the future in light of the present.  When the prophet tells-forth, the message is for rebuking, reproving, counseling, or admonishing.  One tells the present in light of the future, while the fore-telling is for a time to come. 

So, it is the predictive type of prophecy that provides such a strong argument for faith based on reason.  Neither human intuition about the future nor limited Satanic control of the future can account for the hundreds of specific BIBLICAL prophecies that have been literally and specifically fulfilled.  These could only come by DIVINE revelation from the HOLY ONE WHO knows and controls the future. 

Predictive prophecy provides an infallible defense, as it not only proves the DIVINE origin, inspiration, and authority of SCRIPTURE, but since over half of the prophecies converge on the PERSON and work of the LORD Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH, it endorses and supports both HIS deity and LORD-ship.  One cannot honestly and truthfully read Psalms 22, Isaiah 52:13 & 52:12 without recognizing that these are prophetic portraits of MESSIAH on the cross.  Numerous other texts specifically deal with various aspects of Y’SHUA’S life, characteristics, segments and phases of HIS perfect life and ministry. 

The coming Kingdom that CHRIST JESUS will set up is detailed in other prophecies, in which we as believers will have a part.  With so many prophecies accurately fulfilled already, we can have complete confidence that all the other promises will also come to pass, and that very soon.  How very amazingly wonderful to know that "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.  And everyone who has this hope in HIM purifies himself, just as HE is pure." [1 John 3. 2 - 3] 

These things were written "to you who believe in the NAME of the SON OF GOD, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the NAME of the SON OF GOD." [1 John 5. 13]  You have to believe it to receive it! 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5!
  As we bid farewell to Shabbat with the Havdalah Service.  Havdalah (separation) is the ceremony that marks the symbolic end of the holy day of Shabbat and ushers in a new week.  The ceremony, consisting of lighting the special candle, blessing the wine, and smelling the spices, is intended to require a person to use all five senses taste the wine, smell the spices, see the flames of the candle and feel its warmth, and hear the blessings.  After the ceremony, it is customary to wish each other "Shavuah Tov — have a good week."
  Thus we celebrate the LORD GOD OF ISRAEL WHO separates the sacred from the mundane and forgives our sins.  May it be YOUR will, O LORD, that our home becomes a sanctuary worthy of YOUR PRESENCE, wherein YOUR HOLY NAME is hallowed, that YOU come and grant YOUR blessings on us! 
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. . .
Work harder at being what you should be rather than at hiding what you really are. 


LIFE IN THE BLOOD    
"For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for your souls upon the altar; it is the blood, as life, that effects expiation for the soul." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 17. 11 Tanakh, Torah] 

 
From Exodus to Revelation, blood is absolutely essential for the remission of sin.  HOLY SCRIPTURE expressively tells that innocent shed blood is the penalty that must be paid to remove the guilt of our transgressions and provide us with a clear conscience before our RIGHTEOUS MAKER. 

 
"According to the Law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission." [Hebrews 9. 22]  It is only because of the precious, shed blood of our SAVIOR, MESSIAH Y’ESHUA, that we can stand before our HEAVENLY FATHER, since "the blood of JESUS CHRIST HIS SON CLEANSES us from all sin." [1 John 1. 7] 

Even while we were sinners, the LORD JESUS died for us that we can now be "JUSTIFIED by HIS blood" [Romans 5. 9] "having made PEACE through the blood of HIS cross." [Colossians 1. 20]  We "were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold — but with the PRECIOUS blood of CHRIST, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot." [1 Peter 1. 18 - 19] 

Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH "loved us and WASHED us from our sins in HIS OWN blood." [Revelation 1. 5]  We were "PURCHASED with HIS OWN blood" [Acts 20. 28] and "we have REDEMPTION through HIS blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of HIS grace." [Ephesians 1. 7; Colossians 1. 14]  All praise to the WORTHY LAMB for by HIS blood, HE has "REDEEMED us to GOD." [Revelation 5. 9] 

Moreover, Y’SHUA is effectively and well-able to "SANCTIFY the people with HIS OWN blood" [Hebrews 13. 12] as there is infinite, eternal power "through the blood of the EVERLASTING COVENANT." [Hebrews 13. 20] 

"And they OVERCAME him (ha'Satan/the Devil) by the blood of the LAMB and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death." [Revelation 12. 11]  This is the last time the blood of the LORD JESUS is mentioned in HOLY SCRIPTURES.  Here, the blood is what enables the believers to overcome and withstand the deceptions and accusations of Satan. 

At the Seder of Passover, the LORD Y’SHUA said, "this is MY blood of the NEW COVENANT, which is shed for many for the remission of sins." [Matthew 26. 28]  Forbid that anyone should ever "count the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing" [Hebrews 10. 29] in view of the fact that the blood of MESSIAH Y’SHUA is forever incalculably priceless, blameless, infinitely precious, justifying perfectly, transforming, eternally cleansing and fully sanctifying. 

The priceless, precious blood of JESUS, the LORD & KING still washes the stains of sin away; and by it, we can stand cleansed in the GLORY OF HIS PRESENCE. 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  Praised are YOU, O LORD GOD, for great is YOUR love for us and YOUR compassion boundless.  Be gracious to us that we may understand and fulfill the teachings of YOUR HOLY WORD.  Enlighten our eyes in YOUR Law that we may cling to YOUR commandments.  Thank YOU for YOUR saving power, for from YOU comes our help.  Draw us nearer to YOU to serve YOU in faithfulness.  Joyfully, we lift our voices and proclaim YOUR PRECIOUS NAME. 


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. . .
Nothing is so bad it can’t get worse. 

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 Y’SHUA 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 Y’SHUA 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 Y’SHUA, 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!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  We thank YOU, GREAT & MIGHTY GOD for 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
  Please LORD, 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. 
  May GOD, WHOSE grace is irresistible and all sufficient, be glorified. 

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 tragedy of life is not in the fact of death, but that so many die without ever having lived knowing the BELOVED SAVIOR, that they may have life more abundantly now, and life eternal after they die. 

JERICHO'S ENIGMA    
"Do this six days, with seven priests bearing seven rams' horns preceding the Ark. On the seventh day, march around the city seven times, with the priests blowing the horns." [Joshua (Yehoshua) 6. 4 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

The battle plan to conquer Jericho violated every ordinance of the TORAH, for the Levites were to be exempt from military duties, yet they led the procession. [Leviticus/Vayikra 1. 2 - 3; 45 - 49]  "The priests took up the Ark of the LORD while seven priests bearing seven rams' horns marched in front of the Ark of the LORD, blowing the horns as they marched.  And the armed men went in front of them, and the rear guard marched behind the Ark of the LORD, with the horns sounding all the time." [Joshua (Yehoshua) 6. 13 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

This also looks as if they were also violating the Sabbath, for here at Jericho they marched seven times as much as on the other six days.  "On the seventh day (Sabbath), they rose at daybreak and marched around the city, in the same manner, seven times; that was the only day that they marched around the city seven times." [Joshua (Yehoshua) 6. 15 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

This instance is the forerunner as anticipated for the "seven trumpet judgments" in Revelation 8 & 9.   It is interesting to note that Joshua instructed them to "maintain silence" until the final series of seven on the seventh day.  "Do not shout do not let your voices be heard, and do not let a sound issue from your lips UNTIL the moment that I command you — Shout!... then you shall shout." [Joshua (Yehoshua) 6. 10 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

In Revelation there is a strange period of silence prior to the seven trumpets.  "When HE opened the seventh seal, there was  silence in heaven for about half an hour." [Revelation 8. 1]  When our OMNIPOTENT HOLY GOD is present, what can man possibly utter; for GOD "will guard the steps of HIS faithful saints, but the wicked shall be silent in darkness and shall perish — for not by strength shall man prevail." [1 Samuel (Shemuel Alef) 2. 9 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

And, when the RIGHTEOUS ALMIGHTY ONE is aroused from HIS Holy Habitation, man must be still:  "Let us be silent... for the LORD our GOD has put us to silence... because we sinned against the LORD." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 8. 14 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  "The LORD is in HIS Holy Temple — let all the earth be silent before HIM." [Habakkuk 2. 20]  "Be silent all flesh, before the LORD!  For HE is roused from HIS Holy Habitation." [Zechariah (Zecharyah) 2. 17 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

If we would but trust and obey, we would find HIS way to be perfect and proven; and, when we cannot see, we can clearly follow HIS VOICE.  "The WAY OF GOD is PERFECT; the WORD OF THE LORD is proven PURE; HE is a SHIELD to all who seek refuge and trust in HIM." [Psalms (Tehillym) 18. 30 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  Open your mouth in holiness and purity, with song and psalm, and bless and praise, glorify and revere, sanctify and ascribe sovereignty to the NAME of the DIVINE KING, the GREAT, MIGHTY & AWESOME ONE, holy is HE.  Take upon yourself the yoke of the Kingdom of Heaven and give sanction to one another to bless the CREATOR.  In tranquil joy of spirit, with pure speech and holy melody exclaim: "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD OF HOSTS, the whole earth is full of HIS glory." 

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 only motive some people have for listening to reason is to gain time for rebuttal. 

DELIGHT IN GOD'S WILL    
"To do what pleases YOU, my GOD, is my desire (Hebrew: chaphets — delight, take pleasure in); YOUR Law is in my inmost parts." [Psalms (Tehillym) 40. 8 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

This expression by King David was also a manifestation of prophecy that was completely fulfilled by MESSIAH Y’SHUA WHO said, "MY food is to do the will of HIM that sent ME, and to finish HIS work." [John 4. 34]  "I came down from heaven, not to do MY OWN will, but the will of HIM WHO sent ME." [John 6. 38]  "The works that I do in MY FATHER'S NAME, they bear witness of ME." [John 10. 25]  "Therefore when HE comes into the world, HE said — Behold, I come, in the volume of the BOOK it is written of ME — to do YOUR will, O GOD." [Hebrews 10. 5, 7] 

The heart of the LORD Y’SHUA was perfectly harmonized with the will of the HEAVENLY FATHER because GOD'S Law was written thereon "not on tablets of stone, but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart." [2 Corinthians 3. 3]  Even in the most trying and difficult circumstances to which any man could ever be subjected, JESUS, the ROCK of our salvation could pray, "Nevertheless, not MY will, but YOURS, be done." [Luke 22. 42] 

By the INDWELLING SPIRIT OF ALMIGHTY GOD, we also must seek to make the will of the HOLY ONE our greatest delight.  We are saved exclusive and completely by grace alone.  But, this is not to deliver us from the discipline of GOD'S RIGHTEOUS & PERFECT LAW for the Law is a schoolmaster making us "free from the law of sin and death." [Romans 8. 2] 

The HOLY SPIRIT OF TRUTH exposes GOD'S Perfect Law to us continuously as we are obedient to HIS commands which enables us to love HIM more in response.  "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD; I will put MY Laws into their hearts, and in their minds and I will write them." [Hebrews 10. 16]  Just as the MASTER OF MERCY instructed for the kings of Israel, we likewise should follow the same advise regarding the Law, "And it shall be with him, and he shall read it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the LORD his GOD and be careful to observe all the words of this Law and these statutes." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 17. 19 Tanakh, Torah] 


Like the psalmist David, we learn not to resist the will of the ALMIGHTY ONE, but to love HIS commands and to delight in HIS Law.  "O how I love YOUR Law!  In it I study and meditate all day long... YOUR decrees are my eternal heritage; they are my heart's rejoicing and delight... I have longed for YOUR salvation and deliverance, O LORD; YOUR Law is my delight." [Psalms (Tehillym) 119. 97, 111, 174 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  There is nothing sweeter or more precious then GOD'S WORD; read it and find engaging treasures for all eternity. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  Evening, morning and noon, YOU, O LORD are all-good, YOUR mercies fail not; YOUR loving kindnesses never cease, all our hope is in YOU.  For all these things, YOUR NAME, O our KING, shall be continually blessed and exalted for ever and ever. 
  Barukh atah ADONAI ELOHEINU MELEKH ha-olam, ozier Yisrael bigvurah. — Blessed are YOU, LORD our GOD, KING of the Universe, WHO girds Israel with might.
  Examine the discipline of your endurance.  Endurance must be directed toward productive goals and expressed in a constructive manner.  Endurance and determination focused to help cultivate good habits and break bad ones.  Endurance come from strength out of deep conviction and determination; so don’t let your tenaciousness lack fortitude. 
  Today is Yom HaAliyah – Israel’s Immigration Day. 

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. . .
When the ALMIGHTY ONE punishes the wicked, HIS NAME is made great and holy. [Mechilta, Kiddush ha'Shem]  Yigdal sh'mo umalkhuto — May HIS NAME and Kingdom grow. 

STILL HE WALKED     
HE could hear the multitude screaming

 "Crucify!  Crucify!"

— HE could hear the hatred in their voices,

 these were HIS Chosen People.

HE loved them and they were going to crucify HIM.

HE was beaten, bleeding and weakened —

 HIS heart was broken,

 but still HE walked.

HE surveyed the crowd as HE came from the palace.

HE knew each of the faces so well, HE had created them.

HE knew every smile, their laughter, and each tear shed,

 but now they were contorted with rage and anger —

 HIS heart was broken,

 but still HE walked.
Was HE afraid?

You and I would have been so.

HIS humanness would have mandated that HE was.
Instead, HE knew what HE came to do!
HE knowingly did all for humanity.

HIS disciples had left, denied, and even betrayed HIM.

HE searched the crowd for a loving face, but saw few.

Then HE turned HIS eyes to the ONLY ONE that mattered

 and HE was assured that this was HIS FATHER'S will.

HE looked back at the crowd,

 at the people who were spitting on HIM,

 throwing rocks and mocking HIM,

 and HE knew it was for them that HE came.

So for them, HE walked.

Deafening sounds of the hammer striking the spikes

 echoed  triumphantly through the crowd.

However, HIS cries were even more prominent

 then the cheers of the crowd.

HIS hands and feet were nailed to the rugged cross

 as pain intensified with each blow.

Loudest of all was the still small voice inside HIS heart

 that whispered, "I am with YOU, MY SON!"
 — and GOD'S heart broke —

 HE had let HIS ONLY-BEGOTTEN SON walk.

Y’SHUA, the MESSIAH could have asked GOD to end HIS suffering,

 but instead, HE asked GOD to "Forgive!"

Not to forgive HIM,

 but to forgive the ones who were persecuting HIM.

As HE hung on that cross dying an unimaginable death,

 HE looked out and saw, not only the faces in the mob,

 but HE could see the face of every person HE was dying for,

 and HIS heart filled with love.

Although HIS body was dying,

 HIS heart was alive —
 — ALIVE with immeasurable,

 unconditional love HE has for each of us.

That is why HE walked.

When I forget how much my GOD loves me,

 I remember HIS walk.

When I wonder if I can, without doubt, truly be forgiven,

 I remember HIS walk.

When I need reminded of how to live like MESSIAH Y’SHUA did,

 I think of HIS walk.
So, to express how much I love HIM,

 when I wake each morning, I turn my eyes to HIM,

 — and I walk.

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  As we bid farewell to Sabbath, our prayer is the LIVING FOUNTAIN refresh and sustain each of you, our cherished friends.  May the LIGHT of the HOLY ONE, blessed be HE, fill your up-coming week with a yearning desire to submit to HIS inscrutable will and give you strength for your daily tasks.  May some of the sweetness of Sabbath be a part of each day as you share the knowledge of wisdom of the LOVING MASTER with others. 
  Our beloved friends our prayer is that GOD ETERNAL will hear our prayer and give us a renewed spiritual awakening, increase our love and brotherhood among us by HIS PRECIOUS SON'S atoning blood.
We wish to express our love to each of you...giving thanks to the HOLY ONE WHO gives good things to HIS children.
 “Tov Shavua — Have a good week!”  

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. . .
Redeem us, O GOD, from the serfdom of ignorance and irreverence!  Read and study GOD'S WORD to have more than a mole's-stunted amount of intellect capable of discerning right and wrong. 


BENEFITS IN SUFFERING    
"For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us." [Romans 8. 18] 

This is how the Apostle Paul approached suffering, in a positive way.  So did James, "My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials." [James 1. 2]  Peter said, "rejoice inasmuch as you partake of CHRIST'S sufferings, that when HIS glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy." [1 Peter 4. 13]  And John stated, "you are of GOD, little children, and have overcome them, because HE WHO is in you is greater than he who is in the world." [1 John 4. 4] 

Paul reveals three positive benefits with suffering:
Suffering leads to heavenly glory.  "If we suffer with HIM, that we may also be glorified together...the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that shall be revealed in us." [Romans 8. 17 - 18] 

Suffering increases our dependence on the COMFORTER, the HOLY SPIRIT for answered prayer.  "Likewise, the SPIRIT helps our infirmities, for we know not what we should pray for as we ought; but the SPIRIT makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered." [Romans 8. 26]  This allows the perfect will of  the ETERNAL MASTER to be accomplished in our life. 

Suffering is far outweighed by the permanence of our HOLY GOD'S love.  "Who shall separate us from the love of CHRIST?  Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  No! in all these things we are more than conquerors through HIM WHO loved us." [Romans 8. 35, 37] 

Instead of dwelling on the suffering, help your neighbor with his load, and yours will not feel so heavy.   And this will come about as we focus our attentions on the everlasting and measureless love of ALMIGHTY GOD.  The INCOMPARABLE & PERFECT HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL is good, loving and exceedingly merciful! 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  Who is like YOU, O KING, HELPER, SAVIOR & SHIELD?  Blessed are YOU, LORD GOD WHO sustains the living with loving-kindness, quickens the dead with great mercy, supports the falling; heals the sick, loosens the bound, and keeps YOUR faith to them that sleep in the dust.  YOU are the LORD of mighty acts, WHO judges, WHO kills and quickens, and causes salvation to spring forth.  YOU alone are faithful, YOU are holy, and YOUR NAME is holy, and we adore and praise you daily. Selah! 

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. . .
Anything worth saying is worth repeating 1,000 times. 

RAHAB & TWO SPIES    
"Joshua son of Nun secretly sent two spies from Shittim saying — Go, view the land, especially Jericho .  So they set out, and they came to the house of a harlot named Rahab, and lodged there." [Joshua (Yehoshua) 2. 1 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

Before attacking the city of Jericho , Joshua the son of Nun sent two spies in to search out the land.  Some assume that two were sent because when Moses had sent in twelve men to search out the land forty years earlier, only two were faithful.  The result was the nation of Israelites were condemned to the wilderness wanderings. [Numbers/B'Midvar 13 - 14] 

It seems, however, that the only accomplishment the two spies succeeded in was in the saving of Rahab and her household.  "The city and everything in it are doomed by the LORD to destruction; only Rahab the harlot is to be spared, and all who are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers we sent." [Joshua (Yehoshua) 6. 17 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

The two spies in the time of Joshua are similar form of evidence, guide, or illustration to the two witnesses that precede the tribulations of Revelation 11.  "And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one-thousand-two-hundred-sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.  These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before the GOD of the earth." [Revelation 11. 3 - 4] 

By faith, Rahab the harlot acted on what she believed and was therefore justified by her works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way.  "For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also." [James 2. 26]  This is the Rahab who was the mother of Boaz, the wife Salmon – thus in the lineage of Y’SHUA. [see Matthew 1. 5] 

Likewise, those who are found faithful and are watching for the LORD'S return — will also go out of this earth another way.  Be ready and watching, HIS return coming is near! 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  O GOD, thank YOU for being our REFUGE and our HOPE, we glorify YOUR NAME.  YOU are the LIVING GOD, YOUR WORDS bring life and light to the soul.  YOU are the strength of our life, the ROCK of our salvation.  YOUR Kingdom and YOUR Truth abide forever.  Praised are YOU, our REDEEMER, the HOLY ONE of Israel.  The grace of our LORD Y’SHUA  ha’MASHIACH be with your spirit. 

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. . .
When we know WHO holds the future, then whatever comes, even the worst is transformed into a blessing. 

THE LORD’S HAND     10/27/19 —
"That Ezra, son of Seraiah, came up from Babylon, a scribe expert in the LAW OF MOSES which the LORD GOD OF ISRAEL had given, whose request the king had granted in its entirety, thanks to the benevolence of the LORD his GOD toward him." [Ezra 7. 6 Tanakh, Nevi’im] 

Neither Ezra the skilled scribe nor Nehemiah, the kings’ butler were prepared either by study or experience to supervise the great construction project of rebuilding the Temple in Jerusalem and the wall of the City which had both been destroyed many years before by the armies of Babylon.  Yet OMNISCIENT GOD called them to these ministries and led them and protected them as they carried out the appointed duties. 

Ezra and Nehemiah gave the  ALMIGHTY EXALTED ONE the glory for what they accomplished.  Ezra reminded his readers six times and Nehemiah twice, that it was by the hand of the LORD their GOD that they were able to properly supervise the work for such a great task. [Ezra 7. 6, 9, 28; 8. 18 – 22, 31; Nehemiah/Nechemah 2. 8, 18]  Regardless of the many difficulties and through much opposition by their foes, it was by the hand of GOD that all HE pleased, HE accomplished through HIS chosen servants.  "You shall be a glorious crown in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the palm of your GOD." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 62. 3 Tanakh, Nevi’im]  "The hand of the LORD shall be revealed in behalf of HIS servants; but HE shall rage against HIS foes." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 66. 14 Tanakh, Nevi’im] 

Likewise, we must be careful to give all honour, glory and praise to the OMNIPOTENT SUPREME LORD & KING for the things HE enables and allows us to accomplish in HIS service.  Even such a great and powerful man of GOD, like the Apostle Paul had to say, "But by the grace of GOD I am what I am, and HIS grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of GOD which was with me." [1 Corinthians 15. 10]  And — "If GOD is for us, who can be against us?" [Romans 8. 31] 

The hand of the LORD can also be a chastening hand as well as a guiding and providing hand.  But the greatest desire of the ROCK OF OUR SALVATION is that "all the peoples of the earth shall know how mighty is the hand of the LORD, that you shall fear the LORD your GOD always." [Joshua (Yehoshua) 4. 24 Tanakh, Nevi’im]  Because, "It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the LIVING GOD." [Hebrews 10. 31]  Therefore, find comfort for your entire life in the center of HIS nail-pierced hands. 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  May GOD give us the kindness to hear with compassion, to offer support, loving comfort, and care.  May HE 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; the faith that will help pave the way for a present that is hopeful, a future that is peaceful — give us the heart to bring joy to each day. Amen! 
  May the LORD use you today to do HIS work in the lives that surround you.  May today be all you need it to be; and the peace of GOD and the freshness of the HOLY SPIRIT rest in your thoughts, rule in your dreams tonight, and conquer all your fears.  May GOD manifest HIMSELF today in ways you have never experienced before.  May your joys be fulfilled, your dreams be closer, and your prayers be answered.  We pray that faith enters a new height for you and that your territory is enlarged.  We pray for peace, healing, health, happiness, prosperity, joy, true and undying love for GOD..

There are four types of men; the one who says,
 "Mine is mine and yours is yours." — The Commonplace or Sodom type.
 "Mine is yours and yours is mine" — The Am'ha-Arez (Deficient & Covetous) type.
 "Mine is yours and yours is yours." — The Saint.
 "Mine is mine and yours is mine." — The Wicked. 

 

MESSIAH & FOUR THIEVES    
"The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.  I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." [John 10. 10] 

There are four different thieves mention in the NEW COVENANT: The first was Judas Iscariot, the disciple, was the first thief involved in the events surrounding the crucifixion of our LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH.  Definitely, Judas was the thief in charge of the money box and was known for taking what was in it. [John 12. 6]  Judas' epithet: "Betrayer of The KING OF GLORY." 

Barabbas, the second thief, was also a troublemaker and had committed murderer in the insurrection. [Mark 15. 7; John 18. 40]  This convicted criminal, sentenced to death, was released, as was the custom at Passover. . . and Y’SHUA OF NAZARETH, the KING OF THE JEWS, was condemned to die the horrible death by crucifixion. 

"Two robbers were crucified with HIM (MESSIAH) one on the right and another on the left." [Matthew 27. 38]  One of the condemned (the third thief) belittled and ridiculed the MASTER saying — "If YOU are the CHRIST, save YOURSELF and us." [Luke 23. 39 — fulfilling prophecy of MESSIAH, Psalms/Tehillym 22. 8] 

However, the fourth thief believed the SAVIOR and said, "we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this MAN has done nothing wrong.  Then he said to JESUS — LORD, remember me when YOU come into YOUR Kingdom.  And JESUS said to him — Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with ME in Paradise." [Luke 23. 41 - 43] 

The four thieves were all deserving the punishment of death.  Judas, the betrayer, ended his own life in suicide.  Barabbas was a beneficiary — though only for a time.  On the cross, one criminal was a mocker, whose ultimate destiny was Hell and the Lake of Fire.  But the thief who believed only moments before his death, received Salvation and Eternal Life.  The LORD Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH, WHO took on HIMSELF the penalty for thieves and robbers, can save anyone who comes to HIM because the REDEEMER \ MEDIATOR came "that we might have life, and have it more abundantly." [John 10. 10]  Who so ever will. . . Come! 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  O magnify the LORD with me and let us exalt HIS NAME together.  HIS glory is in the earth and in the heavens. HE is the STRENGTH of all HIS servants, the PRAISE of them that truly love HIM, the HOPE OF ISRAEL, the people HE brought near to HIMSELF.  HIS Law is a Tree of Life to them that lay hold of it, and the supporters thereof are happy.  Its ways are ways of pleasantness, and all its paths are peace. HalleluYAH! 

  True compassion is limitless.  It is not an extension of your needs and defined by your limited perspective.  Compassion for another is achieved by having a selfless attitude, expressing compassion and empathy in your heart. 

  Rosh Chodesh begins at evening. 

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. . .
We are only as strong as what we struggle with. 

ALMOST ALL    
"According to the Law, ALMOST ALL things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission." [Hebrews 9. 22] 

In the OLD COVENANT sin is dealt with by a sacrifice of blood for a covering.  "For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you for making expiation for your lives upon the altar; it is the blood, as life, that effects atonement." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 17. 11 Tanakh, Torah]  The Hebrew word "kaphar" means atone, cleans, cover-over, forgive, pardon, purge, propitiate, or reconcile. 

Chapter 4 of Leviticus lists the sacrifices required for sins done unintentionally by a common person, a ruler, or the whole congregation.  However, they were only for unintentional sins, not for premeditated willful sins.  There was no covering for any sins done deliberately.   The person who emphatically sins was to be cut off because of their wickedness. 

The ALMIGHTY ONE tells us that there are those we are not even to pray for.  "As for you, do not pray for this people, do not raise a cry or pray for them, do not make intercession to ME; for I will not listen to you...they vex and provoke ME to anger to their own disgrace." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 7. 16, 19 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  "This is the nation that would not obey the LORD their GOD, nor accept correction.  Truth and faithfulness has perished vanished from their mouths." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 7. 28 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  "Do not pray for the benefit of this people." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 14. 11 Tanakh, Torah] 

In the NEW COVENANT also, the only covering for unintentional sin is blood — the most precious blood of the SUPREME SACRIFICE, MESSIAH Y’SHUA, GOD'S ONLY–BEGOTTEN SON.   "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." [Romans 5. 8 - 9]  And you have been "washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the NAME of the LORD JESUS and by the SPIRIT of our GOD." [1 Corinthians 6. 11] 

However, if one willfully sins "after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins." [Hebrews 10. 26]  Those who have such contempt, despise and totally reject MESSIAH Y’SHUA, WHO is GOD'S MAGNIFICENT METHOD of dealing with sin will receive a much worse punishment for they have "trampled the SON OF GOD underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the SPIRIT OF GRACE?" [Hebrews 10. 29]  When the LORD ETERNAL judges HIS people, assuredly it will be, "a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the LIVING GOD." [Hebrews 10. 30 - 31] 

Though we were enemies of the HOLY GOD, through the death of HIS SON we can be justified by the blood of the LAMB, and saved from the wrath of GOD through YESHUA ha’MASHIACH, the only ONE through WHOM we can receive reconciliation.  The GIVER OF THE LAW calls even now: "BEHOLD! NOW IS THE ACCEPTED TIME; BEHOLD, NOW IS THE DAY OF SALVATION." [2 Corinthians 6. 2]  The power of the LORD GOD ETERNAL, the MASTER OF MERCY & TRUTH, is mighty to save; don't turn HIM away! 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
”If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  As we bid farewell to Shabbas, our prayer is that GOD, WHO separates the holy from the secular, forgive our sins.  We share the blessed hope that every day will be as sweet as Shabbat...a rest of love freely given in truth and sincerity — a rest in peace and tranquility, quiet and safety — a perfect rest in which you find favor of the LORD Y’SHUA!  CREATOR of the Universe we extol YOUR greatness and goodness.  We rejoice at YOUR guiding hand and seek YOUR inspiration and purify our spirits that in our daily tasks we may be conscious of YOUR PRESENCE.  Help us to see that no work prospers unless it brings blessings to other lives, and no gain truly enriches if it adds not to the happiness of others.  Help us so to live that when we have gathered our final harvest, many shall rise up and call us blessed, because we pointed them to YOU.  Teach us to seek YOU ever more within the sanctuary of our souls, within YOUR Tabernacle, and in the congregation of YOUR worshipers, Amen.
  May each day of the new week be a blessing as you bless others. Hodu l’YHVH ki tov – kee l’olam chasdo – give thanks to YEHOWAH, HE is good. 

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.
