A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
All creation testifies to the fact that history is not random, the universe is not concealed from our understanding, and that what happens to us is not blind chance. We ask, not because we doubt, but because we believe in the MOST HIGH CREATOR GOD and that HE not only hears, but is faithful to answer. 

FEAR NO MORE 
"When I am afraid, I trust in YOU. In GOD, WHOSE WORD I praise, in GOD I have put my trust; I will not fear." [Psalms (Tehillym) 55. 3 - 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

The first mention of fear in HOLY SCRIPTURE is significant, Adam said to ELOHIYM, "I heard YOUR VOICE in the Garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself." [Genesis (Bereshith) 3. 10 Tanakh, Torah] Absolutely, one should be afraid when he has ignored or rejected GOD’S WORD, for "it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the LIVING GOD." [Hebrews 10. 31] 

For sinners of all ages, the same warning is given in the final reference to fear (mentioned first): "the fearful (cowardly), unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the Lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death." [Revelation 21. 8] 

Notice the last mention of fear in the OLD COVENANT and the first in the NEW, as a contrast however, for both are speaking of the entrance of the SON OF GOD into the world. "But to you who fear MY NAME, the SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS shall arise with healing in HIS wings. You shall go forth and grow fat like stall-fed calves, and you shall trample the wicked to a pulp, for they shall be ashes beneath your feet on the day that I am preparing — said the LORD OF HOSTS." [Malachi (Malakhi) 4. 2 - 3 Tanakh, Nevi’im] "Do not be afraid to take to you Miryam (Mary) your wife, for THAT which is conceived in her is of the HOLY SPIRIT. And she will bring forth a SON, and you shall call HIS NAME Y’SHUA, for HE will save HIS people from their sins." [Matthew 1. 20 - 21] 

The remedy for fear of man or all else is to fear of the LORD. "I sought the LORD, and HE heard me, and delivered me from all my fears." [Psalms (Tehillym) 34. 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim] "The LORD is on my side, I will not fear; what can man do to me? With the LORD on my side as my HELPER, I shall see the downfall of those who hate me. It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man; it is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in princes." [Psalms (Tehillym) 118. 6 - 9 Tanakh, Kethuvim] Y’ESHUA ha'MASHIACH already has endured everything we could ever fear, even death itself, so that through HIS victorious resurrection conquering sin and death, HE might "release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage." [Hebrews 2. 15] 

In view of the fact that "in the time of trouble HE will shelter me in HIS pavilion, in the secret place of HIS Tabernacle HE shall hide me; HE shall set me high upon a rock." [Psalms (Tehillym) 27. 5 Tanakh, Kethuvim] And, with secure assurance I will confidently declare that "the LORD is my LIGHT and my SALVATION; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the STRENGTH of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?" [Psalms (Tehillym) 27. 1 Tanakh, Kethuvim] So, "wait on the LORD; be strong and of good courage! And HE shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!" [Psalms (Tehillym) 27. 14 Tanakh, Kethuvim] Therefore, I will look to the LORD and on the BELOVED ONE I shall wait. 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
As we bid farewell to Shabbas, our prayer is that GOD, WHO'S PRESENCE dwells within us, bless you abundantly and guard you, our dear ones in the coming week. May some of the sweetness of Sabbath be present throughout each day so they are filled with love and unselfishness - that happiness and contentment may abide in our homes. 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!" 
Eternal is YOUR power, O my LORD, YOU are mighty to save. In lovingkindness YOU sustain the living; in the multitude of YOUR mercies YOU preserve all. YOU uphold the falling and heal the sick, free the captive, and keep faith with YOUR children in death as in life. Who is like YOU, ALMIGHTY GOD, AUTHOR of life and death, SOURCE of salvation? Truly there is none! So we praise YOU, O LORD, WHO has implanted within us eternal life and give YOU praise, honor, glory and our heart-felt thanks for YOUR exemplified love and kindness. Amen! 
"Tov Shavua (Have a good week)!" You are in our hearts and daily prayers! 

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. . . 
Careless shepherds make many a feast for the wolf. 

WHICH YOKE TO WEAR 
"The yoke of my offenses is bound fast, lashed tight and woven by HIS hand; imposed upon my neck, it saps my strength. The LORD has delivered me into the hands of those I cannot withstand." [Lamentations (Ekhah) 1. 14 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

The unsaved person wears a yoke of sin. The religious legalist wears a yoke of bondage and is encouraged to "stand fast" so not to become entangled into sin again. [Galatians 5. 1] A follower of CHRIST, who depends on the grace of GOD MOST HIGH, wears the liberating yoke of the LORD Y’SHUA. [Matthew 1. 29 - 30] 

"Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?" [2 Corinthians 6. 14 - 15] This text is precise and specifically plain regarding the doctrine of Christian separation from unbelievers. The believer should completely avoid evil teachings and errors or their practices; they should also turn away from all association with those who do such things; and they should never enter into a binding relationship of any kind with non-Christians. 

The unequally yoked involves the actual fellowship, communion, and physical union with unbelievers. This is actually forbidden by Law, for how "can two walk together without being in agreement?" [Amos (Amus) 3. 3 Tanakh, Nevi'im] This clearly includes marriage, business partnership, or other formal bonds with individuals. Those who do not believe in MESSIAH Y’SHUA, are either knowingly or unknowingly affected by pagan beliefs or practices. "Therefore, if the unbeliever departs, let him depart; a brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases. But GOD has called us to peace." [1 Corinthians 7. 15] Instead of such an unbalanced, deranged yoke, we should be joined only to the Lord Y’shua ha'Mashiach and associate with His like-minded followers, for JESUS said — "My yoke is easy, and My burden is light." [Matthew 11. 30] Perfect are all His ways. 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
Welcome Sabbath! Sabbath of Chukat – “Statute” [Reading: Numbers 19:1 - 22:1; Judges 11:1-33; John 19:38-42] 
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 GREAT GOD! When the invisible hand of our MAGNIFICENTLY WONDERFUL OMNIPOTENT GOD guides our lives and we are more then blessed, as we live each moment for HIS glory and praise. Be enveloped in HIS riches this Sabbath in peace and harmony as you glorify and praise our MIGHTY KING. 
Magnified and sanctified be the GLORIOUS NAME of the HOLY ONE in the world which HE created according to HIS will. 
MODEH ANI: Modeh ani lefanecha Melech chai v’kayom shehechezarta bee neshmati b’chemia rabb emunasecha. — “Thankful am I before YOU, LIVING & ETERNAL KING, that YOU have returned my soul within me with compassion; abundant is YOUR faithfulness.” 
May the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL bless you abundantly. May HIS Kingdom be establish speedily during our life and during our days, and during the life of all the House of Israel. Amen

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
The only reason some people listen to reason is to gain time for rebuttal. 

SUN-SHIELD-GRACE-GLORY 
"For the LORD GOD is SUN ("SHEMESH") and SHIELD ("MAGEN"); the LORD bestows grace and glory; HE does not withhold HIS bounty from those who walk without blame." [Psalms (Tehillym) 84. 11 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

In the innumerable mercies of our RIGHTEOUS LORD GOD, HE will not forsake us in our wilderness journey, nor will HE depart from us day or night. HE has sent us HIS HOLY SPIRIT to instruct us and never withholds any good thing from us that HE may give us according to the riches of HIS glory to strengthen us. "And my GOD shall supply all your need according to HIS riches in glory by CHRIST JESUS." [Philippians 4. 19] 

"But to you who revere MY NAME the SUN OF RIGHTEOUSNESS ("SHEMESH TSEDEQ") shall rise with healing in HIS Wings." [Malachi (Malakhi) 4. 2 Tanakh, Nevi'im] This prophecy was completed in Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH, when the woman with the issue of blood touched the hem (wings/fringe on the Prayer Shawl/Tallit) of the LORD'S garment for healing, it was immediately granted to her.

"Then you will understand the fear of the LORD, and attain knowledge of GOD. For the LORD grants wisdom; knowledge and discernment are by HIS decree. HE reserves sound wisdom for the upright and is a SHIELD for those who live blamelessly, guarding the paths of justice, protecting the way of HIS saints. You will then understand what is right, just, equitable — every good path." [Proverbs (Mishle) 2. 5 - 9 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

"And the WORD became FLESH and dwelt among us, and we beheld HIS glory, the glory as of the ONLY BEGOTTEN of the FATHER, full of grace and truth.." [John 1. 14] We have been justified by faith in the LORD Y’SHUA, "to the praise of the glory of HIS grace, by which HE has made us accepted in the BELOVED." [Ephesians 1. 6] 

"Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised; HIS greatness cannot be fathomed. The LORD is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy. The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in kindness. The LORD is good to all, and HIS mercy is upon all HIS works. HE fulfills the wishes of those who fear HIM; HE hears their cry and delivers them. The LORD watches over all who love HIM." [Psalms (Tehillym) 145. 3, 8 - 9, 19 - 20 Tanakh, Kethuvim] Knowing this, we can be confident and completely content in perfect peace, even in this world of havoc and turmoil. 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
With great love YOU have loved us, O our GOD, and with exceeding compassion YOU have borne with us. Our fathers believed and trusted in YOU; therefore you taught them the laws of life, and showed them the ways of wisdom. We implore YOU, O MERCIFUL FATHER, to grant us discernment, that we may understand and fulfill all the TEACHINGS of YOUR WORD. Make us gladly obedient to YOUR commandments and fill our hearts with love and reverence for YOU. In YOU we put our trust; we rejoice and delight in YOUR help, for with YOU alone is salvation, and peace in the soul of man. YOU have called us as teachers of YOUR Law; YOU have chosen us for a holy mission to mankind; therefore do we joyfully lift up our voices and proclaim YOUR magnificence. Praised are YOU, O GOD, WHO has chosen us in love. We give praised to YOUR HOLY NAME and thank YOU for Y’SHUA, our BELOVED REDEEMER.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
When the out-look is destitute, try the UP-look. 

DECEIT DESTROYED 
"For YOU are not a GOD (EL) wHO desires wickedness; evil cannot abide with YOU; wanton men cannot endure in YOUR sight. YOU detest all evildoers; YOU destroy those who speak lies; murderous, deceitful men the LORD abhors." [Psalms (Tehillym) 5. 5 - 6 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

The Hebrew word "mirmah" literally means false, guile, subtle, treachery, fraud, deceitful. The ALMIGHTY ONE is JUST & HOLY and HE hates deceit in all forms. HIS justice demands punishment for whoever will not accept HIS merciful sacrifice for sin. Deceivers are good for nothing, like salt that has lost its savor. The LORD GOD has no pleasure in this type of person. 

The evil and the wicked "cannot abide with YOU." [Psalms (Tehillym) 5. 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim] The word abide or dwell can also be translated as to stand in awe. "Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in dread (awe, trepidation, fear) of HIM." [Psalms (Tehillym) 33. 8 Tanakh, Kethuvim] This is the only acceptable response to the LORD GOD, CREATOR of heaven and earth. Those who have received the LOVING CREATOR'S merciful grace can but bow in humble gratitude in the majestic PRESENCE of his RIGHTEOUS MAKER. The wicked and evil person has no intimate relationship with the BLESSED REDEEMER, but one day to HIM — "every knee shall bow." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 45. 23 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

"The boastful shall not stand in YOUR sight; YOU hate all workers of iniquity." [Psalms (Tehillym) 5. 5 Tanakh, Kethuvim] A fool rages and boasts of his own deeds, but he will not have any standing before OMNIPOTENT GOD WHOSE justice requires one-hundred percent holiness. And for those who work iniquity either systematically or habitually, the LORD pronounces HIS justice on these religious pretenders. HE will say to them, "I do not know you depart from ME, all you workers of iniquity." And, "there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth." [Luke 13. 27 - 28] 

The BIBLICALLY described hatred has no room for personalities. A hateful person is the same as one who opposes the LORD OF GLORY. To hate the HIGH & LOFTY MERCIFUL CREATOR is to be HIS enemy; and to hate TRUE & LIVING GOD is to find oneself outside HIS mercy. But all who fear HIS NAME can say — "I, through YOUR abundant love and mercy, will come into YOUR House; I bow down in awe and worship toward YOUR Holy Temple." [Psalms (Tehillym) 5. 7 Tanakh, Kethuvim] On the other hand, "there shall by no means enter it (the New Heaven & Earth) anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE." [Revelation 21. 27] "And you shall know that I, the LORD your GOD (YEHOWAH ELOHEYKM), dwell in Zion, MY Holy Mount. Then Jerusalem shall be holy; nevermore shall strangers pass through her again." [Joel (Yoel) 3. 17 Tanakh, Nevi’im] More and more, I long for the righteousness of MESSIAH Y’SHUA, my BELOVED REDEEMER. 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
O GOD, keep my tongue from evil and my lips from speaking guile (deceit). Be my SUPPORT when grief silences my voice, and my COMFORT when woe bends my spirit. Plant humility in my soul, and strengthen my heart with perfect faith in YOU. Help me to be strong in trials and temptations and to be humble always before YOU, my STRONG-TOWER. Guide me by the LIGHT of YOUR counsel, and let me ever find rest in YOU — my ROCK and my REDEEMER. Praised be the LORD GOD ETERNAL to WHOM all praise is due for ever and ever. Amen! 
To have hope that is certain and faith that is sure, we must spend some time daily in GOD’S WORD to us so we can learn, understand and be firmly grounded in what HE has to teach us. How can we follow someone we don’t truly know and trust? We must read to know because the ONLY SOURCE OF TRUTH is what is written.

Post  Admin on Wed 20 Jun 2018, 8:51 am

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
The first duty of love is to listen. 

CHOOSE LIFE      
"I call heaven and earth to witnesses against you this day: I have put before you life and death, blessing and curse, CHOOSE LIFE — if you and your descendants would live — by loving the LORD your GOD, obeying HIS VOICE, and holding fast to HIM. For thereby you shall have life and shall long endure upon the soil that the LORD your GOD swore to your ancestors, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give to them." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 30. 19 - 20 Tanakh, Torah] 

Just before his death, Moses reiterate the Law and the Covenant between the ALMIGHTY ONE and HIS people which is summed up in the greatest commandment:  "You shall love the LORD your GOD with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 6. 5 Tanakh, Torah] 

Moses also declared "surely, this INSTRUCTION which I enjoin upon you today is not too baffling for you, nor is it beyond reach. It is not in heaven, that you should say — Who among us can go up to the heavens and get it for us and impart it to us, that we may observe it? — Neither is it beyond the sea, that you should say — Who among us can cross to the other side of the sea and get it for us and impart it to us, that we may observe it?" [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 30. 11 - 13 Tanakh, Torah]  There is nothing concerning this commandment that was hard to understand.  "No, the WORD is very close to you, in your mouth and in your heart, to observe and do it." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 30. 14 Tanakh, Torah] 

Furthermore Moses instructed, "Take this BOOK OF TEACHING and place it beside the Ark of the Covenant of the LORD your GOD, and let it remain there as a witness against you. Well I know how defiant, rebellious and stiff-necked you are; even now, while I am still alive in your midst, you have been defiant toward the LORD; how much more, then, when I am dead! Gather to me all the elders of your tribes and your officials, that I may] speak these words to them and that I may call heaven and earth to witness against them." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 31. 26 - 28 Tanakh, Torah 

The significant evidence that CREATOR GOD is the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE, GREAT PROVIDER & LOVING SAVIOR-REDEEMER is all around us.  We have more than enough information to respond to HIS calling.  These evidences, "HIS invisible attributes are clearly seen" and were "since the creation of the world, even HIS eternal power and GODHEAD" so those who reject are absolutely "without excuse." [Romans 1. 20]   To ignore the evidence of the creation and the flood, one must be "willingly ignorant." [2 Peter 3. 5]   Refusing or denying such clear evidence  is foolishness, which is a form of idolatry! 

Even now, the LORD MESSIAH Y’SHUA is calling, "See, I set before you this day life and prosperity, death and adversity." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 30. 15 Tanakh, Torah]   The choice is between receiving a "blessing" or a "curse." [vs. 16, 18]   All reasonable and mindful logic points to ALL-POWERFUL LORD GOD of the SACRED WRITTEN WORD being the only ONE TRUE GOD.  Therefore, "Choose Life! — if you and your offspring would live — by loving the LORD your GOD, heeding HIS COMMANDS, and holding fast to HIM. For thereby you shall have life, for HE is your LIFE." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 30. 20 Tanakh, Torah]  In LORD Y’SHUA, the absolute best is yet to be! 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
YOU, O FATHER and KING, the SOURCE of all blessings, we enter into YOUR gates with thanksgiving, and into YOUR courts with praise. We bless YOUR HOLY NAME from everlasting to everlasting. Teach us to seek YOU ever more within the sanctuary of our souls, to worship YOU in sincerity and truth.  We declare our love to YOU — and thank YOU for being our LOVING REDEEMER.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
Blessings can only sprout from a foundation of peace. 
 
FATHER’S, A MARK OF DISTINCTION 
"Honor your father and mother" — which is the first commandment with promise — "that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth." [Ephesians 6. 2 - 3] 
 
This worldly society, whose influence is growing and will prove deadly if it continues to grow, has been trying to get ALMIGHTY GOD’S Ten Commandments [Exodus/Bereshith 20:3-17] purged from public life and recognition even to the point of re-writing history and outlawing religious rights. However, historians and honest jurists know that they are the very foundation of the American legal system. 
 
The two tablets of the Law deal first with our responsibilities under ALMIGHTY GOD, these are the first four commands. Then the following six deals with our responsibilities to our fellow man. The sixth commandment stresses the vital importance of parents in the life of each generation of young people. Not only was this commandment placed ahead of those against murder, adultery, and robbery, but it was the only one specifically promising a blessing for obedience; "that you may long endure on the land that the LORD ELOHEY is giving to you." [Exodus (Shemot) 20. 12 Tanakh, Torah] 
 
Today, as never before, there is a serious generation gap, a cosmic chasm-sized division between the interests and standards of parents and their children, even among CHRISTian families, and this is a tragedy. "Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is well pleasing to the LORD." [Colossians 3. 20] Here the Greek word, teknon, applies to children of any age. 
 
Fathers also have a great responsibility. They are commanded to see that their instructions are soundly SCRIPTURALLY and spiritually motivated. "Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged." [Colossians 3. 21] "Do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the LORD." [Ephesians 6. 4] This implies that the father is involved at home and is being maturely dependable and accountable in his role of a loving, neutering, selfless Dad. Then the promise of our INCREDIBLY AMAZING HEAVENLY FATHER will come to pass that "the glory of children is their parents." [Proverbs (Mishle) 17. 6 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 
 
 
Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
As we bid farewell to Sabbath at the Havdallah Ceremony, we use all of our senses: We taste the wine, smell the spices, see the shadow of candles, hear prayers and songs, touch family and friends as we wish them a Good Week. 
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! 
The loving father is a complex pastiche (take-off, imitation) for whom morality, ethics and trust is often taught by example. Responsibility is unquestioning. Love and protection is without qualification. To a GOD-fearing father principles aren’t merely guidelines, they are living values.. Many father’s are dreamers who hope, plan and work for our best; and they are such gentle, loving guides. Thanking each of you for being so devoted to your family! May the GREAT HEAVENLY FATHER bless and reward you. 
May the sweetness of Sabbath be felt all through your 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.

Cynicism (pessimism) is idealism (optimism) gone sour. 

MESSIAH IN THE OLD COVENANT 
"Let me tell of the decree: the LORD said to me — YOU are MY SON, I have fathered YOU this day." [Psalms (Tehillym) 2. 7 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

There are many monotheists today (specifically Muslims, Watchtower Cultists, Jews and liberal CHRISTians) who believe in one SUPREME GOD, but reject the deity of MESSIAH Y’SHUA. They argue that the doctrine that Y’SHUA was the unique SON OF THE MIGHTY GOD OF ISRAEL was invented by the early CHRIST-ians and that the GOD of the OLD COVENANT had no SON. Orthodox Jews, in particular emphasize the Shema: "Hear, O Israel — the LORD our GOD, the LORD is one." [Deuteronomy/Devarim 6. 4 ] And the Muslims acknowledge that Allah has no sons, proving the one they worship is not the HIGH & HOLY GOD OF CREATION . And, the Watchtower claims that Y’SHUA is the first creation of GOD - not the CREATOR, most probably Michael. 

The fact, however, is that there are numerous verses in the OLD COVENANT that speak to prove that OMNIPOTENT GOD has an ONLY-BEGOTTEN SON: The great promise of SOVEREIGN GOD to David affirms, "I will raise up your offspring after you...I will be a FATHER to HIM, and HE shall be MY SON...before ME YOUR Throne shall be established forever." [2 Samuel (Shemuel Bet) 7. 12, 14, 16 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

Agur asked a rhetorical question: "WHO has ascended into heaven and come down? WHO has gathered the wind in the hollow of HIS hands? WHO has bound the waters in a 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, Nevi'im] 

The book of Isaiah is replete with prophecies related to the ANOINTED SON OF GOD MOST HIGH: "Assuredly, my LORD will give you a sign of HIS OWN accord — Look, the virgin (Hebrew: almah— an engaged virgin) shall conceive and bear a SON, and shall call HIS NAME IMMANU'EL (literally meaning: with us is GOD)." [Isaiah/Yeshayah 7. 14] "For a CHILD has been born to us, a SON has been given us. Authority will be upon HIS shoulder. And, HIS NAME will be called WONDERFUL, COUNSELOR, MIGHTY GOD, EVERLASTING FATHER, PRINCE OF PEACE. Of the increase of HIS government and limitless peace there will be no end. Upon David's Throne and over HIS Kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even evermore. The zeal of the LORD OF HOSTS shall bring this to pass." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 9. 6 - 7 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

"Behold! MY SERVANT WHOM I uphold, MY ELECT ONE in WHOM I delight! I have put MY SPIRIT upon HIM; HE will teach the true way to the Gentiles. HE will not cry out, nor raise HIS voice, nor cause HIS voice to be heard in the street. A BRUISED REED, HE shall not break, and SMOKING FLAX, HE will not be snuffed out. HE will bring forth justice for truth. HE will not fail nor be discouraged, till HE has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands shall wait for HIS Teachings. Thus says GOD THE LORD, WHO created the heavens and stretched them out, WHO spread forth the earth and what it brings forth, WHO gives breath to the people on it and life to those who walk thereon...The LORD goes forth like a MIGHTY MAN; HE shall stir up HIS zeal like a man of war. HE shall cry out; Yes, shout aloud, HE shall prevail against HIS enemies." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 42. 1 – 5, 13 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

Then there is the most definitely marvelous verse regarding Y’SHUA, the SON OF THE LIVING GOD found in the MESSIANIC Psalms which concludes with this exhortation: "Kiss the SON, lest HE be angry and you perish in the way when HIS wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all who take refuge in HIM." [Psalms (Tehillym) 2. 12 Tanakh, Nevi'im] Assuredly, the LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH is the HOLY ONE OF OLD, the ONLY-BEGOTTEN SON, the FIRST-BORN of the MOST HIGH the EXALTED KING of all ages. How truly amazing our GOD is! 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
Good Sabbath — 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. 
Shabbos of Korach – “Korah” [Reading: Numbers 16:1 - 18:32; 1 Samuel 11:14 – 12:22; John 19:1-17] 
We honor & praise the LORD Y’SHUA, the BLESSED ANOINTED ONE...our prayer for each of you is for the grace of our LORD JESUS CHRIST to be with your spirit. 
My FATHER of mercies, MY PRAISE, do good in YOUR favor unto Zion; build the walls of Jerusalem. For in YOU alone do we trust, O KING, high and exalted GOD, LORD of worlds. Rise up, O LORD, and YOUR enemies shall be scattered, and they that hate YOU shall flee before YOU. For out of Zion shall go forth the Law, and the WORD OF THE LORD from Jerusalem. 
Have a peaceful, enriching Shabbat by blessing others. 

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. . .
Man's way leads to a hopeless end — GOD'S way leads to an endless hope. 

DISCERNING FALSE PROPHETS      
"And should you ask yourselves — How can we know that the word was not spoken by the LORD? — IF the prophet speaks in the NAME of the LORD and the oracle does not come true, that oracle was not spoken by the LORD; the prophet has uttered it presumptuously; do not stand in dread (be afraid) of him." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 18. 21 - 22 Tanakh, Torah] 


The test a true prophet of the LIVING LORD is to consider what they say.   Do they call everyone to repent of their evil ways and doings and turn wholeheartedly back to ALMIGHTY GOD?  The MOST HOLY ONE said, "IF they had stood in MY counsel, let them announce MY words to MY people, then they would have turned them from their evil ways and from the wicked acts they are doing." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 23. 22 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

Because they seek to entice you away from the LORD your GOD, the penalty for a false prophet was death.  "Do not assent or give heed to him. Show him no pity or compassion, and do not shield him; but take his life. Let your hand be the first against him to put him to death, and the hand of the rest of the people thereafter. Stone him to death, for he sought to make you stray from the LORD your GOD, WHO brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thus all Israel will hear and be afraid, and such evil things will not be done again in your midst." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 13. 9 - 12 Tanakh, Nevi'im]   To our shame and ultimate ruin, we have accepted and honored the false teachers instead of following the ALMIGHTY'S commands to destroy evil from among us.  This is bringing GOD'S just wrath upon the whole world. 

The testing of a prophet should never be based entirely on his ability to perform signs and wonders; but on the message he speaks.  "If there appears among you a prophet or a dream-diviner and he gives you a sign or a wonder, saying — Let us follow and worship another god — whom you have not experienced — even if the sign or wonder that he named to you comes true, you shall not heed or listen to the words of that prophet or that dream-diviner. For the LORD your GOD is TESTING you to see whether you really love the LORD your GOD with all your heart and with all your soul." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 13. 2 - 4 Tanakh, Torah] 

Absolute harmony of the prophet's message and deeds with the revealed WORD OF GOD, and the wholehearted commitment to the HOLY ONE HIMSELF, is an immediate test of a true prophet.  His inward attitude will be expressed and he will walk after the LORD in fear and reverence, keep HIS commandments, and obey HIM — serving the LORD and clinging to HIS promises.  "Follow none but the LORD your GOD, and revere none but HIM; observe HIS commandments alone, and heed only HIS orders; worship none but HIM, and hold fast to HIM." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 13. 5 Tanakh, Torah]   Then, it will be well with our souls. 

 
Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
O EVER-FAITHFUL GOD, keep my tongue from evil and my lips from speaking guile. Be my SUPPORT when grief silences my voice, and my COMFORT when woe bends my spirit. Plant humility in my soul, and strengthen my heart with perfect faith in YOU. Help me to be strong in trials and temptations and to be humble always before YOU, my STRONG-TOWER. Guide me by the LIGHT of YOUR counsel, and let me ever find rest in YOU — my ROCK and my REDEEMER. Praised be the LORD GOD to WHOM all praise is due for ever and ever. 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. . .
Man's true relationship with GOD is shown by his actions as HIS WONDERFUL MESSAGE, the DEAREST TREASURE of the human race, is shared with others and spread throughout the lands. 

EXALTED NAME      
"Let all those who seek YOU be glad and rejoice in YOU; let those who are eager for YOUR deliverance always say — ELOHIYM be extolled and magnified!" [Psalms (Tehillym) 70. 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

Unfortunately, we live in a day when people tend to worship heroes, sports idols, or charismatic political and spiritual leaders instead of GOD MOST HIGH. This verse, however honors the LORD GOD in sincerity, and is a terrific one for those who are true followers of the GREATEST HERO, the ONE WHO defeated Satan, the arch-enemy of our soul. 

It is a dangerous thing to overly magnify any man or woman and follow them explicitly, for it is CREATOR GOD WHO alone is worthy of our praise, honour and glory.  We should magnify the ETERNAL ONE and HIS WORD.  "The LORD desires righteousness for HIS servants; HE will exalt and magnify and glorify HIS TEACHINGS." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 42. 21 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  There are those who, in this Age of Grace, play down the importance of GOD'S Law, but HIS desire and command is for us to magnify it. 

In fact, this statement is true of all SCRIPTURE: "YOU have exalted and magnified YOUR NAME, YOUR WORD, above all." [Psalms (Tehillym) 138. 2 Tanakh, Kethuvim]   The NAME and Promises of the MOST HIGH are above all things.  Some accuse BIBLE-believing CHRIST-followers of putting HOLY SCRIPTURES on too high a pedestal, but this is impossible!  We could never magnify GOD'S WORD as much as GOD HIMSELF does.  We, therefore, magnify the LORD when we magnify HIS WORD.  "Let all those who seek YOU rejoice and be glad in YOU; let such as love YOUR salvation say continually — The LORD be magnified!" [Psalms (Tehillym) 40. 16 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  "May those who desire MY vindication sing forth joyously; may they always say — Magnified and extolled be the LORD WHO desires the well-being of HIS servant." [Psalms (Tehillym) 35. 27 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

King David said, "Oh magnify the LORD with me, and let us extol HIS NAME together." [Psalms (Tehillym) 34. 3 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  Let the GENTLE SHEPHERD be extravagantly exalted, glorified, praised, and respectfully worshiped.  Joy too wonderful for words will flood your very being! 

Oh, the goodness of GOD WHO spreads abroad such loveliness to all the corners of this sin-cursed earth!  What must HE be preparing in heaven for HIS OWN children?  It seems to me that one could not bear more beauty, our capacity must be increased as it will be so much more glorious then imaginable...for we shall be like HIM!  Yet that is the promise, to be like the very CREATOR of beauty. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
 O INFINITE & MERCIFUL CREATOR , firm in the faith we are emboldened to seek YOUR PRESENCE, and we are assured that we shall find YOU if, with sincere hearts, we seek YOU. As the flowers of the field drink of the dew of heaven and of the radiance of the sun, so would we, lifting our spirits unto YOU, drink of the pure fountains of holiness. In YOU alone our souls rejoice, for YOU are our life and our song. 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. . .
As a house implies a builder, a dress a weaver, a door a carpenter, so the world proclaims GOD, it’s CREATOR. 

QUICKENING SPIRIT      
"There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. And so it is written — The first man Adam became a living being. — The LAST ADAM became a LIFE-GIVING SPIRIT." [1 Corinthians 15. 44b - 45] 

Paul makes it perfectly clear in this glorious resurrection chapter of Corinthians, that man became a living soul.  Here he is quoting Genesis — "The LORD GOD formed man (Hebrew: ‘adam) of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being." [Genesis/Bereshith 2. 7]  Opposing the opinion of many liberal theologians, Adam was not merely a generic term for humanity in general, but this specifically indicates that Adam was "the first man." It also proves false the teaching of a human population on earth (pre-Adamic men) — despite the claims of all those who would compromise with the evolutionists. 

Just as there was a first Adam, so MESSIAH Y’SHUA was the LAST ADAM.  HE was not the last man to be born, HE was the second and last man whose body would be directly formed by GOD, as emphasized in the Genesis account.  "That HOLY ONE WHO is to be born" [Luke 1. 35] which Miryam (Mary) received in her womb, was conceived altogether miraculously.  "Therefore, when HE came into the world, HE said — a body YOU have prepared for ME." [Hebrews 10. 5] "The first man was of the earth, made of dust; the SECOND MAN is the LORD from heaven." [1 Corinthians 15. 47] "HE WHO comes from above is above all; he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. HE WHO comes from heaven is above all." [John 3. 31] "The BREAD OF GOD is HE WHO comes down from heaven and gives life to the world." [John 6. 33] 

Thus, having no inherited or generic sin in HIS perfect human body, this LAST ADAM could become "the LAMB OF GOD" WHO’S body was perfect and "without blemish and without spot" able to redeem lost men with HIS "precious blood" that alone can take "away the sin of the world." [John 1. 29; 1 Peter 1. 19] 

Moreover, the LORD MESSIAH Y’SHUA was also "made a QUICKENING SPIRIT" by raising from the dead.  HE was "put to death in the flesh but made alive (quickened) by the SPIRIT" [1 Peter 3. 18], and now gives eternal life to all who receive HIS life.  "For as the FATHER raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the SON gives life to whom HE will." [John 5. 21] Without a doubt, the LORD JESUS is the RESURRECTION and the LIFE, whoever believes in HIM though he may die, will live.  HalleluYAH! what a SAVIOR. 


Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Forever we plead with YOU, O GUARDIAN OF ISRAEL, help us, take notice of our tears; for continually we cry aloud, “Hear O Israel” – take notice, GUARDIAN of the Nations; show all the peoples that YOU are our MERCIFUL KING.  Indeed, we have none other, YOU alone, whose NAME is ONE! Blessed are YOU, WHO in YOUR glory gives life and light to the whole world. For YOUR great goodness and endless mercies, we give thanks, praise, honor and 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.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are. 

WHAT THE LORD TOLERATES      
"I wiped out nations: Their corner towers are desolate; I turn their thoroughfares into ruins, with none passing by. Their towns lie waste without people, without inhabitants. And I thought that you would fear ME, receive instruction, and that the punishment I brought would not be lost on you and cut off your vision. Instead, all the more eagerly you have practiced corruption in all your deeds. But wait for ME — says the LORD — for the day when I arise as an ACCUSER; when I decide to gather nations, to bring kingdoms together, to pour out MY indignation on them, all MY blazing anger. Indeed, by the fire of MY passion all the earth shall be consumed." [Zephaniah (Tsefanyah) 3. 6 - 8 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

ALMIGHTY GOD revealed HIMSELF in the HOLY SCRIPTURES as the UNIQUE MEASURE and the EMBODIMENT OF ABSOLUTE TRUTH.  HE holds the extraordinary position of being CREATOR and SUSTAINER of the heavens and the earth, and all that HE created.  Our GOD is Omnipotent (all powerful), Omniscient (all knowledge) and Omnipresent (everywhere all at once) and HE is altogether righteous.  There is no inconsistency, HE is perfect, holy and just. 

When we insist on doing what is right in our own eyes, apart from GOD'S holy standards; tolerate what HE does not tolerate, or fail to tolerate what HE does tolerate, we are sinning.  Sin and iniquity are things the MASTER DESIGNER does not or will not tolerate.  "Your iniquities have been a barrier between you and your GOD, your sins have made HIM turn HIS face away and refuse to hear you. For your hands are defiled with crime and blood and your fingers with iniquity. Your lips speak falsehood, your tongue utters treachery. No one sues justly, nor appeal for truth or pleads honestly. They rely on emptiness and speak falsehood, conceiving wrong and begetting evil." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 59. 2 - 4 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

Although the LORD OF HOSTS, the GREAT GOD OF ISRAEL does not tolerate sin, HE is more than tolerant of mankind; HE is compassionate and merciful.  Prophets of old are replete with examples of GOD'S intolerance as well as HIS tolerance.  They carefully spell out the consequences of sin. . . captivity, dispersion, hardship, suffering and death.  They also tell the positive side of serving the LIVING GOD...redemption, renewal, eternal life and heavenly rewards. 

The ALMIGHTY ONE not only has the unique right to be intolerant of our sin, but HE provides the "UNIQUE MEANS" to make us righteous.  "THE WAY" has been provided for us to be reconciled to HIM, "For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have assigned it to you for making expiation for your lives upon the altar; IT IS THE BLOOD, as life, that effects expiation." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 17. 11 Tanakh, Torah]  Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH is the ABSOLUTE TRUTH. The LORD JESUS said of HIMSELF— "I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE. No one comes to the FATHER except through ME." [John 14. 6] 

Therefore beloved, we should consider what manner of persons we ought to be in holy conduct and godliness, "looking for and hastening the coming of the Day of GOD, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat." [2 Peter 3. 12] 

"For GOD did not send HIS SON into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through HIM might be saved. He who believes in HIM is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD." [John 3. 17 - 18]  Only by acknowledging and agreeing with GOD'S intolerance of our sin can we discover that HE is also incredibly merciful and loving in providing MESSIAH Y’SHUA, THE WAY, to have a relationship with us.  In the PERSON of the LORD JESUS, we can see how far ALMIGHTY GOD was willing to go in order for us to be made right.  Thank you LORD JESUS for YOUR cleansing blood. 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
 May your life be a witness and beneficiary of the MOST HIGH GOD'S care, love, and presence. HIS grace is greater then all our needs!
 O GOD, do not keep silent; do not hold aloof; do not be quiet, O EL! For YOUR enemies rage, Your foes assert themselves, they plot craftily against YOUR people, take counsel against YOUR treasured ones. They say, “Let us wipe them out as a nation; Israel’s name will be mentioned no more.”  Deal with them, O my GOD, make them like thistledown, like chaff driven by the wind, as a fire burns a forest, as flames scorch the hills, pursue them with YOUR tempest, terrify them with YOUR storm. Cover their faces with shame so that they seek YOUR NAME, O YEHOWAH. May they be frustrated and terrified, disgraced and doomed forever. May they know that YOUR NAME, YOURS alone is YEHOWAH, the GLORIOUS MASTER over all the earth. [see Psalms/Tehillym 83]
 Giving thanks, praise, worship, honor and glory to the HOLY ONE WHO has redeemed us and made us HIS own peculiar people.
Welcoming Rosh Chodesh, the new moon – the month of Sivan

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 art of Mothering is to teach your children the art of living. 

WOMAN OF VALOR      
"Strength, splendor, and honor are her clothing; she rejoices cheerfully as she looks to the future." [Proverbs (Mishle) 31. 25 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

This testimony notes a vital aspect of the character of the virtuous woman in the last 22 verses of Proverbs 31.  The title in Hebrew is, Aishess Kahyil, Woman of Valor (courage, boldness, heroism), and it is written in an acrostic format.  The author evidently is using all the resources possible to describe a truly valuable model a woman can and should be.  

This woman is industrious in providing clothing for her family making "for all her household is dressed in crimson" and her herself "she makes tapestry, her clothing is fine linen and purple" since "she performs her tasks with vigor, she sees that her business thrives; her lamp does not go out by night. She sets with her hand to the distaff (femininity), her fingers work the spindle." [Proverbs 31. 21 – 22 & 18 – 19 Tanakh, Kethuvim] But most important, her spiritual clothing is strength and honor which are even more lovely then the beautiful garments. 


In the NEW COVENANT, the Apostle Paul urged "that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, but, which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works." [1 Timothy 2. 9 - 10] 

Similarly, the Apostle Peter exhorts CHRISTian wives not to emphasize their outward appearance. "Do not let your adornment be merely outward — arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel — rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of GOD. For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in GOD also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands, as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror." [1 Peter 3. 3 - 6]  This compliments the believer, as reflected in OLD COVENANT: "For the LORD takes pleasure in HIS people; HE will adorn the humble with salvation." [Psalms (Tehillym) 149. 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  "Seek the LORD, all you meek of the land, who have upheld HIS justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility." [Zephaniah (Tsefanyah) 2. 3 Tanakh, Nevi’im] 

Thus, the incentive encouragement the HOLY SCRIPTURE gives to all women who follow the LORD Y’SHUA is to be concerned primarily with their spiritual clothing — strength of character, honor, quietness of spirit, and good works.  "Charm (favor, grace, elegance, refinement) is deceitful, beauty is passing (illusory, deceptive, misleading); but a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised." [Proverbs (Mishle) 31. 30 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

The woman of valor is an amazing gift from CREATOR GOD, for they are well equipped with HIS love, equanimity (self-control, composure, level-headed), tolerance (patience, charity, kindness, mercy) and wonder (amazing, sensational, exciting, exhilarating, thrilling), but moreover they fear and honor HIM. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Happy Mother’s Day!  Be sure to honor motherhood and the women who have set an example for you by following the example of Y’SHUA.  Love, encourage, care for, and serve those around you, including those who don’t deserve it.  Follow Y’SHUA’S steps and give your life away for the welfare of others, just as HE did for you. In humility, build something lasting. . .this will result from bonding and commitment to others, but above all ― to the LORD GOD. 
Secret of marriage:  Protect her like a daughter, love her like a wife, and respect her like your Mother. 
Celebrating Yom Yerushalayim - JERUSALEM DAY - Fifty-one years ago, the Six Day War reunited the Jewish people with the Holy City of Jerusalem.
Day 43 of the Omer 

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 most harmful and depraved thief is the one who deceives and steals the minds of people. 

THIS GENERATION      
"Assuredly, I say to you — This generation will by no means pass away till all things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away." [Luke 21. 32 - 33] 

The LORD Y’SHUA made this exciting prophetic discourse on the Mount of Olives.  HE had just given HIS disciples the signs they had requested about the signs of HIS return.  Then HE discussed the coming great tribulation and finally HIS glorious return in the clouds of heaven.   And "all these things" were to be fulfilled before "this generation would pass away." 

Many question, what generation would that be?  Some claim that it is Jewish people, but that would be most redundant, since many other passages had already promised that the nation of Israel would never pass away… "If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, says the LORD." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 31. 37 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

The Hebrew word for generation is "dowr" — meaning age, revolution of time, posterity; and the same word in Greek is "genea" — which also means age, generation, time, nation.  And a similar Greek word, "genos" can either means "stock" or "kind" — but never the word genea.   The Greek word "houtee" (a normative feminine plural) — can mean "this, that, which, who, the same." 

Therefore, the generation which MESSIAH Y’SHUA was predicting probably meant the generation that would see the events HE had prophesied.  "when you see all these things, know that it is near — at the doors!" [Matthew 24. 33]  Some of "these things" are:  The world wars — nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; accompanied and followed by earthquakes in various (coasts, counties, fields, grounds, regions, lands) places, pestilences, the Gospel of the Kingdom being preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations; many false christs and false prophets are rising up and showing great signs and wonders that are deceiving even the elect, parents murdering their children and children murdering parents, wrong being viewed as right, and right being outlawed completely by officials in high places; the budding of the fig tree — signifying Israel; and widespread wickedness and spiritual indifferences as in the days of Noah. [see Matthew 24. 7, 14, 24, 32, 37 - 39] 

These signs are most accurate and identify the things happening all over the world today warning that the End Times are upon us.  "Forever, O LORD, YOUR WORD is settled in heaven." [Psalms (Tehillym) 119. 89 Tanakh, Kethuvim]   Therefore, it is imperative for us to be diligent (attentive, careful) and alert to recognize the signs of our day, since the BELOVED MESSIAH so strongly stressed HIS disapproval of the leaders and elders failure to know and understand the signs of their day. 

The word "this" is a expressive adjective, so the LORD Y’SHUA seems to be referring to "that" generation which sees "these things begin to come to pass." That generation will indeed see "these things begin to come to pass" and this writer believes that "this" is "that" generation.  So to us, the LORD OF RIGHTEOUSNESS says — "look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near." [Luke 21. 28] 

"Therefore you also be ready, for the SON OF MAN is coming at an hour you do not expect." [Matthew 24. 44] Take heed! the time of MESSIAH’S return is near! 

 Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!  
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
As we bid farewell to Sabbath, our prayer is that GOD, WHO'S PRESENCE dwells within us, bless you abundantly. May some of the sweetness of Sabbath be present throughout the week.
Help us, O our GOD, to banish from our hearts all pride and vain-glory, all confidence in worldly possessions, all self-sufficient leaning upon our own reason.  Fill us with the spirit of meekness and the grace of modesty, that we may become wise in the fear of YOU. May we never forget that all we have and prize is but lent to us, a trust for which we must render account to YOU.   O HEAVENLY FATHER , put into our hearts the love and fear of YOU, that we my consecrate our lives to YOUR service and glorify YOUR NAME in the eyes of all men.
Shavua Tov – Good Week!       
This evening begins Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Day)
Day 42 of the Omer 

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. . .
Tolerance eliminates justice. 
 
AWAKE TO RIGHTEOUSNESS      
"Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of GOD. I speak this to your shame." [1 Corinthians 15. 34] 
The word “shame” in Greek is "entrope" — meaning turning inward, inversion, turning back, reverse, confusion, confound.  This was used one other time by Paul — "I say this to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you, not even one, who will be able to judge between his brethren?" [1 Corinthians 6. 5]   Evidently this special variety of shame is associated with taking controversies between CHRISTian brethren to worldly judges and also with failing to witness to the unbelieving community.  Instead of bringing the true wisdom of GOD to the ungodly, they were turning to scholarly, world-wise authority to resolve spiritual problems.  Instead, put on the LORD Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH "knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep." [Romans 13. 11]  Otherwise, this inverted behavior will produce nothing less than spiritual confusion! 
 
The better known medical term, "entropy" is the same as the Greek word — it is disorder of the body, where the body or system is disintegrating into confusion if left to itself or not attended to properly.  This tendency can only be reversed if an orderly energy is applied to it effectively from a source outside the system. 
 
This gives a striking parallel in the spiritual realm.  A person turning inward to draw on his own powers, or seeking power from an ineffective outside source, will inevitably deteriorate eventually into utter spiritual confusion and death.  But when LOVING SAVIOR enters the life, that person becomes a new creation in the LORD JESUS. "If anyone is in CHRIST, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new." [2 Corinthians 5. 17] 
 
Through the power of the HOLY SPIRIT and the LIFE-GIVING SCRIPTURES, "HIS divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of HIM who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world." [2 Peter 1. 3 - 4] 
 
The law of spiritual entropy is transformed into the law of the SPIRIT of life in MESSIAH Y’SHUA.   "For the Law of the SPIRIT OF LIFE in CHRIST JESUS has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the Law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, GOD did by sending HIS OWN SON in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: HE condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the SPIRIT." [Romans 8. 2 - 5] 
 
"Behold, I lay in Zion a STUMBLING STONE and ROCK OF OFFENSE, and whoever believes on HIM will not be put to shame." [Romans 9. 33]  May the glory of the LORD GOD in us never be allowed to be put to shame. 
 
Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!  
Welcoming Sabbath!  Sabbath of  Behar / Bechukotai – “On Mt. Sinai / In MY Statutes” [Reading: Leviticus 25:1 - 27:34; Jeremiah 16:19 – 17:14; Luke 4:14-22; Matthew 16:20-28] 
Those who keep the Sabbath and call it a delight shall rejoice in GOD'S Kingdom. Through the common days flow the refreshing waters of GOD'S lovingkindness, yet we forget THE SOURCE. May this hour awaken within us a sense of our dependence upon YOU. Create in us a clean heart and renew a right spirit within us that we may face our daily duty with a firm courage and a tranquil mind. May we learn to know that in loving and serving our fellowmen, we are loving and serving YOU. May the spirit of the Sabbath fill our life with its blessed peace through YOUR PRECIOUS SON, Y’SHUA THE ANOINTED ONE. Amen 
   Our prayer to the ALMIGHTY ONE for each of you: Osher (happiness), Briut (health), Ahava (love), Shefa (plenty), Tehilla (glory), Shalom (peace), and Bracha (blessing). May the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL greatly bless you this Sabbath.
Day 41 of the Omer 
 
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. . .
Sometimes the only reward for taking the easy path is — it’s easy; but where does it get you.

RICH MAN, POOR MAN
"So it was that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham's bosom. The rich man also died and was buried." [Luke 16. 22]

The LORD Y’SHUA related this story, not as a parable, but as a fact that literally happened. Otherwise, this illustration is the only one that was not so identified as being a parable. We can learn much from this isolated account from the contrast between these two dramatically different men, their death, and destinies. Notice that only one of the participants name is given, that of Lazarus.

The rich man surrounded himself with luxury, he "clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day." [v. 19] Lazarus, the beggar, struggled each day "full of sores, who was laid at his gate, desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores." [Luke 16. 20 – 21]

As life goes, no one can escape the grave and in the passage of time, both died. This is when their deaths made an immense difference that actually heightened the knowledge we gain in reading this testimony. The rich man died and was buried, "being in torments in Hades, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom." [Luke 16. 23] The rich man was fully aware of his wretchedly miserable condition, and that Lazarus, who had been carried by angels to his eternal abode, was in comfort. [Luke 16. 22] The interchange between the rich man and Abraham, and the timeless instruction of MESSIAH gave are well known. [see Luke 16. 24 - 31]

Note also the contrast between "carried" and "buried" in the context of the passage. The beggar’s body was no doubt unceremoniously dumped into a pauper’s grave with little to no mourning for his life ending. The rich man’s corpse was placed in a costly sepulcher, and his funeral attended by many friends and mourners. But as you look beyond the earthly spectrum. . . while the rich man begs for mercy and relief from torment, Lazarus, the poor man’s eternal spirit is literally carried off, transmit away into the presence of ALMIGHTY GOD, where he is now comforted. [v. 25] Not only for Lazarus, but for all who die in the LORD, "Death is swallowed up in victory." [1 Corinthians 15. 54]

Those who forsake the RIGHTEOUS REDEEMER will "be blotted out of the Book of Life, and not be written with the righteous." [Psalms/Tehillym 69. 28] Whereas the one "who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. If anyone serves ME, let him follow ME; and where I am, there MY servant will be also. If anyone serves ME, him MY FATHER will honor." [John 12. 25 - 26] Lazarus sets an excellent example for seeking true riches.

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
We bow down and acknowledge before the KING of kings that there is none like YOU, our LORD and KING. For YOU stretched out the heavens like a tent and established the earth. O LORD our GREAT GOD, may we soon behold YOUR majestic glory when all abominations shall be removed and all false gods be ended. Then the world shall be perfected under YOUR rule and all mankind call on YOUR HOLY NAME. For to YOU every knee must bow and every tongue declare that you are GOD. We thank and praise YOU, our RIGHTEOUS LORD! Amen
Day 30 of the Omer

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 highest rewards for man’s toil is not what he gets for it, but what he becomes by it.  How lovely it is to be nothing when GOD is all! 

REDEEMED, INCORRUPTIBLE        
"For thus says the LORD — You have sold yourselves for no price, and shall be redeemed without money." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 52. 3 Tanakh, Nevi’im] 

What a glorious promise, though we sold ourselves to the slavery of sin, the LORD Y’SHUA paid the price to redeem us back to HIMSELF.  Therefore, we should "conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear; knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of CHRIST, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot." [1 Peter 1. 17 – 19] 

There is not enough wealth or riches in this world that could redeem even one single soul, for gold and silver are corruptible elements in a world under "the bondage of corruption." [Romans 8. 21]   For everything in the physical creation is decaying and dying.  In fact, one day all these "elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up." [2 Peter 3. 10]  Yes, the LORD has warned that in HIS fierce anger, "all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of MY jealousy." [Zephaniah (Tsefanyah) 3. 8 Tanakh, Nevi’im]  

Furthermore, the seeds which transmit life are "corruptible seed" [1 Peter 1. 23], and all mankind is "corruptible man." [Romans 1. 23] Everywhere and everything in this universal falls under the principle of decay as one of its most basic laws — the law of increasing turmoil and instability. . . but GOD is still in complete control. 

However, in spite of the chaos and distortion in this corrupt world, some things are incorruptible. The greatest of these definitely being the  "incorruptible...WORD OF GOD which lives and abides forever." [1 Peter 1. 23]  Though "heaven and earth will pass away, but MY WORDS will by no means pass away." [Matthew 24. 35]  "The WORD of our GOD stands forever." [Isaiah/Yeshayah 40. 8]   "The LORD...will exalt HIS law and make it honorable." [Isaiah/Yeshayah) 42. 21], for HE has magnified HIS WORD above HIS NAME. [Psalms/Tehillym 138. 2]  HIS NAME and promises are above all things. 

We are redeemed, not by silver and gold, "but with the precious blood of MESSIAH, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot." [1 Peter 1. 19]  The LORD GOD HIMSELF is the glorious " incorruptible GOD" [Romans 2. 23], and HE has "begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of JESUS CHRIST from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away." [1 Peter 1. 3 – 4]  We work, not as others, "to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown." [1 Corinthians 9. 25 ] 

At last, our dying bodies will finally be redeemed, "we shall all be changed — in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality." [1 Corinthians 15. 51b – 53] 

We are opulently, pensively, marvelously redeemed by the most precious blood of the LAMB, the KING OF GLORY. . . how I love to proclaim it.
Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Bidding farewell to Sabbath…LORD our GOD, great, eternal, wonderful in glory, WHO keeps covenant and promises for those that love YOU with their whole heart, WHO is the LIFE of all, the HELP of those that flee to YOU, the HOPE of those who cry to YOU, cleanse us from our sins, secret and open, and from every thought displeasing to YOUR goodness — cleanse our bodies and souls, our hearts and consciences, that with a pure heart, and a clear soul, with perfect love and calm hope, we may venture confidently and fearlessly to pray to YOU.  We thank YOU and in the MAGNIFICENT NAME of Y’SHUA we pray, Amen! Have an extra special week in the MASTER’S presence.
Day 28 of the Omer 

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.

Egotism is nothing more than an antiseptic that dulls stupidity. 

TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WELL      
"The LORD said to me (Moses), 'Gather the people to ME, and I will let them hear MY words, that they may learn to revere ME as long as they live on the earth, and that they may teach their children.'" [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 4. 10 Tanakh, Torah] 

How critically essential it is that parents not only know the ONLY TRUE & LIVING GOD, but that they teach their children to understand, honor and serve the BLESSED CREATOR. From the very beginning, the HOLY ONE has instructed and encouraged us to acknowledge HIM and experience the awesomeness of HIS PRESENCE. "That they should make them known to their children; that the future generation might know — children who would be born — that they may arise and tell their children, that they may set their confidence and hope in GOD, and not forget the works of GOD, but keep HIS commandments." [Psalms (Tehillym) 48. 5 - 7 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

GOD, the ALMIGHTY SOVEREIGN RULER is concerned about every person throughout all generations and HE has "been our DWELLING PLACE...a LITTLE SANCTUARY" [Psalms/Tehillym 90.1 & Ezekiel/Yehezke-El 11. 16] for all who will believe and follow faithfully.  That is why the GREAT & MIGHTY GOD repeatedly stresses that HIS absolute truths concerning the creation, HIS character, HIS great work of salvation, and HIS perfect plans for the ages to come be passed on faithfully from one generation to another. "You shall diligently teach your children the laws and commandments I charge you this day. You shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them serve as a symbol on your forehead; inscribe them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates — That your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land of which the LORD swore to your fathers to give them, like the days of the heavens above the earth." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 6. 7 - 9; 11. 21 Tanakh, Torah] 

The GOD OF ETERNITY is concerned that we do not forget those precious truths which HE has given us. "Forever, O LORD, YOUR WORD stands firm in heaven. YOUR faithfulness endures to all generations; YOU established the earth, and it abides. They continue this day according to YOUR ordinances, for all are YOUR servants. Unless YOUR Law had been my delight, I would then have perished in my affliction. I will never forget YOUR precepts, for YOU have preserved my life through them." [Psalms (Tehillym) 119. 89 - 93 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  The LORD Y’SHUA, the ALPHA and the OMEGA, the FIRST and the LAST pleads with us to "hold fast what you have...that no one may take your crown." [Revelation 2. 25; 3. 11] 

The true principle of great education that was given by the Apostle Paul is, "to be strong in the grace that is in MESSIAH Y’SHUA. And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also." [2 Timothy 2. 1 - 2]  And the crucifixion which shows GOD’S greatest love is especially to be taught forever, so that your children will prostrate themselves and bend their knees before the LORD. "Offspring shall serve HIM; the LORD’S fame will be proclaimed to the generation to come. They will declare HIS righteousness to people yet to be born, that HE has done this." [Psalms (Tehillym) 22. 30 - 31 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

Oh that the ends of the earth would remember HIS wondrous works and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations worship before HIM. Let every generation see, and behold the face of GOD. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
 O FATHER in Heaven, YOU are our GUIDE even unto death. Grant us, I pray grace to follow YOU wherever YOU go.  In little daily duties to which YOU call us, bow down our wills to simple obedience, patience under pain or frustration, strict truthfulness of word and manner, humility, kindness; in great acts of duty or perfection, if YOU should call us to them, uplift us to self-sacrifice, heroic courage, laying down our life for the sake of YOUR Truth for our family, our children, our friends, or for our brother. Amen. 
This is the authorized Pesach Sheni (Second Passover, Iyyar 14) see Numbers 9:6-14
Day 29 of the Omer    

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. . . 
Greed, selfish desires, ambition, lust, and the like are all categories of madness. 

THE OHEL 
"You shall make cloths of goats' hair for a tent over the Tabernacle; make the cloths eleven in number." [Exodus (Shemot) 26. 7 Tanakh, Torah] 

The Ohel is the second covering of the Wilderness Tabernacle. The women who were wise-hearted spun goats' hair for its making. Bedouins today live in tents made of black goats' hair which has been woven into a canvas. They call it their "house of hair." 

In HOLY SCRIPTURES, the goat signifies the sin bearer, especially the Scape Goat. Black, representing man's old nature of sin. The black of the Ohel, the tent or second curtain, tells of Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH WHO was made the Sin-Offering; then the Ram's Skins dyed red — typical of Y’SHUA "MESSIAH THE SUBSTITUTE" WHO'S blood covers the blackness of our sin. The white linen of the Mishkan tells of MESSIAH'S righteousness (First, HE is righteous). 

At four of the set times or "Feasts of YEHOWAH" — Unleavened Bread, Feast of First-Fruits, Pentecost and the Day of Atonement there was a goat slain on behalf of the people's sins. Since the offensive odor of this animal signifies the stench of sin in the nostrils of the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, the priests were commanded to purify themselves from defilement by washing with water after handling it. [Numbers/B’Midvar 31. 20; Leviticus/Vayikra 16. 26 - 28] 

The LORD Y’SHUA is the ANTI-TYPE of the goats' hair curtain, for HE was "made sin," a stench to the GREAT GOD OF HEAVEN, upon that Roman Cross. Isaiah prophesies of this: "When YOU (FATHER GOD) make HIS (MESSIAH Y’SHUA) soul an offering for sin" — or rather, "HE (Y’SHUA) made HIMSELF an offering for guilt…and that through HIM the LORD'S purpose might prosper." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 53. 10 Tanakh, Nevi'im] The LORD JESUS came in the likeness of sinful flesh, yet without sin, and died upon the Altar (as did the goat) on behalf of the people. Y’SHUA OF NAZARETH is the perfect SIN-OFFERING to ALMIGHTY GOD for us that "we might become the righteousness of GOD in HIM." [1 Corinthians 5. 21] 

Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH came as a PERFECT MAN to be THE SIN OFFERING because of the marvelous grace of our LOVING GOD to man in his weakness. We could never show enough gratitude and appreciation for HIS tender mercy to us! Sincerely, we do —Thank YOU, LORD! HalleluYAH! 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
Life begins with struggle; and when struggle ends life ends with it. This may well be the secret of Jewish continuity, which has outlived the countless nations and empires and ideologies that have done everything in their power to destroy us, and who survive only in the pages of history books. But even more than that, it is that very struggle that makes life worth living.. Comfort and complacency lead to apathy, and a life of apathy is scarcely better than no life at all. 
May the ETERNAL ONE remind us to be grateful, not just for the success, but even for the struggle. 
Seek the LORD while HE may be found, call upon HIM while HE is near. Diligently obey the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL, incline your ear to the MASTER and you will live. 
Day 25 of the Omer 

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

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
Being great does not excuse one from being good. 

EL SHADDAI — GOD ALMIGHTY 
"When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him — I am EL SHADDAI; walk in MY ways and be blameless before ME. I will establish MY covenant between ME and you, and will multiply you exceedingly." [Genesis (Bereshith) 17. 1 - 2 Tanakh, Torah] 

The name EL SHADDAI (ALL-SUFFICIENT ONE, ALMIGHTY GOD) is the description of GOD used some forty-eight times in the OLD COVENANT, this text is its first occurrence. In the NEW COVENANT this name is used nine times, the last makes it clear to us that no Temple is in the Holy City, "for the LORD GOD, EL SHADDAI , and the LAMB are its Temple." [Revelation 21. 22] 

Accordingly, the first and last books of HOLY SCRIPTURE (First & Last indicates all Books in between) reiterates that our GOD is an OMNIPOTENT GOD, as SHADDAI means ALL-SUFFICIENT NOURISHER [comparable to breasts full of milk (shad in Hebrew means breast)]; the ALMIGHTY, MOST POWERFUL, a term exclusively for the one TRUE GOD. The Prophet Jeremiah prayed: "Ah, ADONEY YEHOWAH! Behold, YOU made the heavens and the earth with YOUR great might and outstretched arm. Nothing is too difficult for YOU! YOU show lovingkindness to thousandth generation, but repay the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them — O GREAT and MIGHTY GOD, whose NAME is the LORD OF HOSTS, wondrous in purpose and mighty in deed." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 32. 17 - 18 Tanakh, Nevi’im] 

Sarah laughed to herself when GOD said she would bear a son in her old age, but EL SHADDAI respond — "Is anything too hard (wondrous, amazing, incredible, extraordinary) for the LORD? I will return to you at the same season next year, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son." [Genesis (Bereshith) 18. 14 Tanakh, Torah] Many years later, the angel told the virgin Miryam (Mary), engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the House of David, that she would have a SON. She questioned, "How can this be, since I do not know a man?" The angel answered, "with GOD nothing will be impossible." [Luke 1. 34 & 37] 

There are some things in EL SHADDAI that are emphatically impossible however, such as being tempted by evil [James 1. 13], HE cannot lie [Titus 1. 2], or deny HIMSELF [2 Timothy 2. 13]. Therefore, whatever HE does is right and whatever HE says is true. We may not always understand why or how HE does or says a certain thing, but in eternity we will learn that HE is able to do what HE says. Our GREAT GOD is omnipotent (all-powerful, supreme, invincible)! 

EL SHADDAI did create the universe and all things by HIS spoken word and fashioned mankind into HIS OWN IMAGE. Since we are fearfully and wonderfully made, we should not desecrate HIS handiwork. "Behold, I am YEHOWAH, ELOHEY of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for ME?" [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 32. 27 Tanakh, Nevi'im] Absolutely nothing! EL SHADDAI does all things well! 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
Good Sabbath! We praise and bless YOUR O GOD, for lovingly and graciously giving YOUR Holy Shabbat to all peoples. 
Sabbath of Sh’Mini – “Eighth” [Reading: Leviticus 9:1 - 11:47; 1 Samuel 20:18-42; Matthew 3:11-17] 
May we be witnesses of the God'S care, love, and glorious presence through the days ahead. Enter each day with joy in our hearts and confidence that SOVEREIGN KING rules and reigns. And, because of HIS great mercy, HE will continue to use us as HIS messengers of the GOOD NEWS to the perplexed and depraved world around us — our IMMANU’EL, the ANOINTED ONE OF GOD is with us! My soul will continually bless the MOST HOLY LORD God for HE alone is worthy of all praise, reverence, rapturous adoration, and exaltation.

If you perceive something so important to be willing to sacrifice your own life for it, then your life has weight and purpose and direction. Because, until you know what you are willing to die for, you have not yet begun to live.

Failure is only postponed success as long as courage coaches ambition. [Herbert Kaufman] 

CHOICE FOR GLORY      
"How can you say — We are wise, and we possess the Law of the LORD? — Assuredly, for naught has the pen of the scribe labored working falsehood. The wise shall be put to shame, shall be dismayed and caught; see, they reject the WORD OF THE LORD, so their wisdom amounts to nothing." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 8. 8 - 9 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

The LORD Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH prayed, "I thank YOU, FATHER, LORD OF HEAVEN AND EARTH, that YOU have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and revealed them to babes. Even so, FATHER, for so it seemed good in YOUR sight." [Luke 10. 21]   "GOD has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and GOD has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty." [1 Corinthians 1. 27]  The HOLY ONE judges all who reject HIS WORD; furthermore they are unworthy of everlasting life. 

"But only in this should one glory...that he is earnestly devoted to understand and know ME. For I the LORD act with lovingkindness, justice, and righteous equity in the world; for in these I delight — declares the LORD." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 9. 24 Tanakh, Kethuvim] "Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of CHRIST JESUS my LORD, for WHOM I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain CHRIST." [Philippians 3. 8] 

The LORD MOST HIGH, the GOD OF ISRAEL, knows those who fear HIM, HIS eye is ever on those who confidently delight in HIS mercy.  The ALMIGHTY ONE will deliver their soul from death.  By virtue of HIS great goodness to us, we rejoice continually in HIS HOLY NAME wherein we place our trust and hope.  "Blessed is the nation whose GOD is the LORD, the people HE has chosen to be HIS OWN inheritance. The LORD looks down from heaven; HE sees all mankind. From HIS dwelling-place HE gazes on all the inhabitants of the earth — HE WHO fashions the hearts of them all, WHO discerns all their doings." [Psalms (Tehillym) 33. 12 - 15 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

We should earnestly pray for the SPIRIT OF WISDOM and revelation in the knowledge of the LORD JESUS that our understanding be enlightened, and "that you may know what is the hope of HIS calling, what are the riches of the glory of HIS inheritance, and the exceeding greatness of HIS power toward us who believe" [Ephesians 1. 18 - 19]   The words of wisdom we speak are from the LIVING GOD, "the hidden wisdom which GOD ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the LORD OF GLORY. But as it is written — Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man the things which GOD has prepared for those who love HIM. But GOD has revealed them to us through HIS SPIRIT. For the SPIRIT searches all things, yes, the deep (height, intense wisdom, enormous extent, hidden secrets) things of GOD." [1 Corinthians 2. 7 - 10]   Don’t quote only one verse, keep reading to complete the thought which, this case in point, states: "GOD has revealed them to us through HIS SPIRIT."  The OLD COVENANT also supports this truth, "The secret things belong to the LORD our GOD, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law." [Deuteronomy/Devarim 29. 29] 

"Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom." [James 3. 13]  The one who is approved by the LORD ETERNAL is commended, not the one who praises himself.  "He who glories, let him glory in the LORD." [2 Corinthians 10. 18] That is giving tribute and honor to the ONE to WHOM all praise is due. 


Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
 May you have blessed assurance knowing that YEHOWAH, our GREAT GOD is the LORD of your life; oh, return to HIM with your whole heart.  May each of you be delivered from troubles and harm, or strengthened to go through it and be stronger in the LORD because of it. Heal us O LORD, make us righteous in YOUR sight. 
 We hold you in our hearts dear friends, and cover you in our prayers. Go forth victoriously proclaiming the goodness of the SAVIOR.

Being great does not excuse one from being good. 

EL SHADDAI — GOD ALMIGHTY 
"When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him — I am EL SHADDAI; walk in MY ways and be blameless before ME. I will establish MY covenant between ME and you, and will multiply you exceedingly." [Genesis (Bereshith) 17. 1 - 2 Tanakh, Torah] 

The name EL SHADDAI (ALL-SUFFICIENT ONE, ALMIGHTY GOD) is the description of GOD used some forty-eight times in the OLD COVENANT, this text is its first occurrence. In the NEW COVENANT this name is used nine times, the last makes it clear to us that no Temple is in the Holy City, "for the LORD GOD, EL SHADDAI , and the LAMB are its Temple." [Revelation 21. 22] 

Accordingly, the first and last books of HOLY SCRIPTURE (First & Last indicates all Books in between) reiterates that our GOD is an OMNIPOTENT GOD, as SHADDAI means ALL-SUFFICIENT NOURISHER [comparable to breasts full of milk (shad in Hebrew means breast)]; the ALMIGHTY, MOST POWERFUL, a term exclusively for the one TRUE GOD. The Prophet Jeremiah prayed: "Ah, ADONEY YEHOWAH! Behold, YOU made the heavens and the earth with YOUR great might and outstretched arm. Nothing is too difficult for YOU! YOU show lovingkindness to thousandth generation, but repay the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them — O GREAT and MIGHTY GOD, whose NAME is the LORD OF HOSTS, wondrous in purpose and mighty in deed." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 32. 17 - 18 Tanakh, Nevi’im] 

Sarah laughed to herself when GOD said she would bear a son in her old age, but EL SHADDAI respond — "Is anything too hard (wondrous, amazing, incredible, extraordinary) for the LORD? I will return to you at the same season next year, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son." [Genesis (Bereshith) 18. 14 Tanakh, Torah] Many years later, the angel told the virgin Miryam (Mary), engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the House of David, that she would have a SON. She questioned, "How can this be, since I do not know a man?" The angel answered, "with GOD nothing will be impossible." [Luke 1. 34 & 37] 

There are some things in EL SHADDAI that are emphatically impossible however, such as being tempted by evil [James 1. 13], HE cannot lie [Titus 1. 2], or deny HIMSELF [2 Timothy 2. 13]. Therefore, whatever HE does is right and whatever HE says is true. We may not always understand why or how HE does or says a certain thing, but in eternity we will learn that HE is able to do what HE says. Our GREAT GOD is omnipotent (all-powerful, supreme, invincible)! 

EL SHADDAI did create the universe and all things by HIS spoken word and fashioned mankind into HIS OWN IMAGE. Since we are fearfully and wonderfully made, we should not desecrate HIS handiwork. "Behold, I am YEHOWAH, ELOHEY of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for ME?" [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 32. 27 Tanakh, Nevi'im] Absolutely nothing! EL SHADDAI does all things well! 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
Good Sabbath! We praise and bless YOUR O GOD, for lovingly and graciously giving YOUR Holy Shabbat to all peoples.

Life is short, break man’s rules and follow GOD’S rules:  Forgive quickly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably. 

MY HOLY NAME       
"So I will make MY HOLY NAME known in the midst of MY people Israel, and never again will I allow MY HOLY NAME to be profaned. Then the nations shall know that I am YEHOWAH QADOWSH YISRAEL (the LORD, the HOLY ONE in Israel)." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 39. 7 Tanakh, Nevi’im] 

The OLD COVENANT is replete using the wonderful name of GOD, QADOWSH YEHOWAH — the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL, most often used during the days of the later kings of Judah.  The strong emphasis on this particular name is probably because of the prevalent un-holiness of the nation of Israel during those years — which finally culminated in the captivity of Judah itself. 

As stated, GOD repeatedly stresses HIS holiness: "For our shield belongs to the LORD, and our KING to the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL." [Psalms (Tehillym) 89. 18 Tanakh, Kethuvim; also see 71. 22; 78. 41]  "For Israel is not forsaken (widowed), nor Judah, by his GOD, the LORD OF HOSTS, though their land was filled with sin against the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 51. 5 Tanakh, Nevi’im; also see 50:29]  "For HE WHO made you will espouse you — HIS NAME is YEHOWAH TSEBAOVT (LORD OF HOSTS) — The HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL will redeem you — HE is called ELOHEY (GOD) of all the earth." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 54. 5 Tanakh, Nevi’im; Isaiah describes GOD as the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL at least 27 times] 

And, we are commanded to be like our CREATOR, "I am YEHOWAH ELOHEYHEM (the LORD your GOD). You shall therefore consecrate yourselves, and you shall be holy; for I am holy." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 11. 44 Tanakh, Nevi’im]  "As HE WHO called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written — Be holy, for I am holy." [1 Peter 1. 15 - 16] 

The final occurrence of this MAJESTIC NAME is especially emphasized as the ANCIENT HERO in Israel given of the prophesied invasion of Israel when Gog, the Prince of Rosh of the Land of Magog whom the LORD GOD is against "will advance upon MY people Israel, like a cloud covering the land. It will be in the latter days that I will bring you against MY land, that the nations may know ME when, before their eyes, I manifest MY holiness through you, O Gog!" [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 38. 16 Tanakh, Nevi’im] 

At that time, says the LORD, "On that day, when Gog sets foot on the soil of Israel — MY raging anger shall flare up. For I have decreed in MY jealousy and in the fire of My blazing wrath I have spoken: Surely in that day a great earthquake shall befall the land of Israel. The fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the ground, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall quake at MY PRESENCE. Mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall crumble to the ground. — I will summon the sword against Gog throughout all MY mountains — says the LORD GOD — and every man's sword will turn against his brother. I will punish him with pestilence and bloodshed; I pour torrential rain, great hailstones, and sulfurous fire down on him, his hordes, and the many peoples with him. Thus I will magnify MY greatness and MY holiness, and make MYSELF known in the eyes of many nations. Then they shall know that I am YEHOWAH (the LORD)." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 38. 18 - 23 Tanakh, Nevi’im] 

At last, the time is coming when the PRECIOUS NAME OF THE LORD will no longer be polluted, corrupted or dishonored and "from that day forward the House of Israel shall know that I YEHOWAH ELOHEYHEM (the LORD am their GOD). . .Assuredly, thus says the LORD GOD — I will now restore the captives of Jacob, and have mercy on the whole House of Israel; and I will be zealous for MY HOLY NAME...I will never again hide MY face from them; for I will pour out MY SPIRIT upon the House of Israel — declares ADONEY YEHOWAH (the LORD GOD)." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 39. 22, 25, 29 Tanakh, Nevi’im] 

Such a glorious day that will be, when GOD cleanses us from all our iniquities, when the HOLY ONE is revered in all nations, and in truth we are HIS holy people.

 
Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
We pray that the ALMIGHTY LORD GOD be gracious to us that we may understand and fulfill the Teaching of HIS HOLY WORD.  May HE enlighten our eyes in HIS  Law that we may cling to HIS commandments. Unite our hearts to love and revere YOU and teach us YOUR WORDS and wisdom.  LORD YOU are our PRAISE, our STRENGTH, our FORTRESS, and our REFUGE  in days of affliction and at all times.
 May you have a heart to know the LORD Y’SHUA, 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.  
Nothing can be achieved in haste. The spreading tree and the soul of man grows slowly to perfection. May the LORD GOD teach you patience that you may endure every trial HE allows to make you strong.
May the HOLY ONE fill you with HIS perfect peace, amazing joy and happiness each day.
Day 24 of the Omer 


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. . .
Failure is not the opposite of success – it is a part of it!  Failures just steer us from taking the wrong path IF one learns from it. 

GENERATIONS OF PRAISE       
"May they always have such a heart in them, to revere ME and follow all MY commandments, that it may go well with them and with their children forever!" [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 5. 29 Tanakh, Torah] 

Each generation of people tends to regard its own times as the most significant of all, toward which all past history has been merely a preparation.  The fact is, however, that the MOST HIGH & HOLY GOD "has been our  DWELLING PLACE, our SHELTER and PROTECTION in all generations" [Psalms/Tehillym 90. 1], and EL SHADDAI is equally concerned about generations yet to come. 

This is why the MARVELOUS CREATOR stresses repeatedly that the great truths concerning HIS creation, HIS character, HIS great work of salvation, and HIS eternal plans for the ages to come be transmitted faithfully from one generation to another. "For HE (EL SHADDAI) established a decree in Jacob, ordained a Law in Israel, charging our fathers to make them known to their children, that the future generation might know — children yet to be born — and in turn declare them to their children that they might put their confidence in ELOHIYM and not forget HIS great deeds." [Psalms (Tehillym) 78. 5 - 7 Tanakh, Kethuvim]   "One generation shall praise YOUR works to another and declare YOUR mighty acts. The glorious majesty of YOUR splendor and YOUR wonders." [Psalms (Tehillym) 145. 4 - 5 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

The OMNISCIENT KING ETERNAL is concerned that we not loose what HE has given us, HIS PRECIOUS WORD.  "Forever, O LORD, YOUR WORD stands firm in heaven. YOUR faithfulness is for all generations; YOU have established the earth, and it stands. They stand this day to carry out YOUR rulings, for all are YOUR servants." [Psalms (Tehillym) 119. 89 - 91 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

The LORD JESUS declared, "But hold fast what you have till I come. Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown." [Revelation 2. 25; 3. 11]    Paul taught of the greatest principle for true education, "the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also." [2 Timothy 2. 2] 

The description of MESSIAH Y’SHUA'S crucifixion and resurrection was the eye-witness testimony of all the Apostles; and is the foundation of our faith and hope for eternal life. "For to this end CHRIST died and rose and lived again, that HE might be LORD of both the dead and the living." [Romans 14. 9]   "Offspring shall serve HIM; the LORD'S fame shall be proclaimed to the generations to come; they shall tell of HIS beneficence, HIS righteousness to people yet to be born, for HE has done this." [Psalms (Tehillym) 22. 31 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

"Be careful to heed all these commandments that I enjoin upon you; thus it will go well with you and with your descendants after you forever, for you will be doing what is good and right in the sight of the LORD your GOD." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 12. 28 Tanakh, Torah] 

With the situation in Israel today where the world seeks to divide the Land with the false hope that Israel can "give land for peace" — we must look up and know that Y’SHUA, the BLESSED REDEEMER & RIGHTEOUS JUDGE of both the people and the land is soon to return.  Then and only then will there be peace and the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL will reign forevermore. HalleluYAH!!!  
Come quickly LORD JESUS! 


Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
As we bid farewell to Shabbat, may you have a good week — a week of peace...may gladness reign and joy increase.
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 REVERED TRUTH. 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 HOLY & PRECIOUS NAME.  We trust that you will experience a GOD-filled week — GOD be with you!

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
CHRISTian opportunism is more than an attitude or virtue — it is a whole pattern of living that has its roots in a passion for souls. 

EXALT & ESTEEM      
"For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as GOD has dealt to each one a measure of faith." [Romans 12. 3] 

Today there is so much importance placed on teaching self-esteem, but this is the cause of many personal problems — the problem is that individuals are so aggrandized with themselves, thinking more highly of themselves and less on valuing others and serving the TRUE & LIVING GOD OF HEAVEN.  This, however, is not a BIBLICAL perspective, the WORD OF LIFE commands that we should, "let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others." [Philippians 2. 3 - 4] 

The Apostle Paul could have been one of the greatest teachers and leaders in the religion/political life of the Jewish people, yet he made the declaration — "But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for MESSIAH. Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH my LORD, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain MESSIAH and be found in HIM, not having my own righteousness, which is from the Law, but that which is through faith in MESSIAH, the righteousness which is from GOD by faith; that I may know HIM and the power of HIS resurrection, and the fellowship of HIS sufferings, being conformed to HIS death, if by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead." [Philippians 3. 7 - 11] 

Moses, though once a prince of Egypt, chose MESSIAH and the people of GOD instead. "By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter, choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of GOD than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin, esteeming the reproach of CHRIST greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward." [Hebrews 11. 24 - 26] 

In the same way, the Apostle James assures us in his writings, "My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing." [James 1. 2 - 4]  Definitely, trials are to test your faith, that we may come forth as pure gold just as Job conveyed, "When HE has tested me, I shall come forth as gold." [Job/Iyob 23. 10] 

Therefore, if we would truly conform to the will of the LOVING MASTER for our lives, we should be esteeming others more than cultivating self-worth in ourselves, cherish the benefit of knowing and serving Y’SHUA our REDEEMER more than all the riches and fame of this present world; and count it a joyful privilege when we are enabled to grow more like the MESSIAH through the trials and testings HE permits us to share...exalt (praise, worship, honor, admire), exult (take pride in, rejoice, glory), and highly esteem the LORD our GOD! 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
 Walk unwavering in the WAY OF HOLINESS execute righteous judgment, and you will avoid retribution from GOD WHO is HOLY!
The grace of our LORD Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH be with your spirit every moment of each day; and may the SPIRIT OF HOLINESS delight your soul. Thanks be to GOD, the ALL-KNOWING ONE that our times are in HIS hand and HE will guide and sustain us even unto the end.
 Abundant blessings and joy unspeakable now and always from our home to yours. 
This is Rosh Chodesh – the new moon starting the month of Iyyar.

Our need is not religion, we need a SAVIOR. 

HARD HEARTS      
"Later HE (MESSIAH YESHUA) appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and HE rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen HIM after HE had risen." [Mark 16. 14] 

Many people, including numerous CHRISTians, are afflicted with the spiritual hardening of the heart, and there are several references to this fact in the HOLY SCRIPTURES.  The first was in Egypt's unbelieving Pharaoh — The LORD said to Moses, "I will harden his heart so that he will not let the people go." [Exodus (Shemot) 4. 21 Tanakh, Torah] Then when the children of Israel did escape Pharaoh's persecutions, they also contracted this debilitating attitude: "Do not be stubborn and harden not your heart, as at Meribah, and as in the day of Massah, in the wilderness, when your fathers put ME to the test, tried ME, though they had seen MY deeds." [Psalms (Tehillym) 95. 8 - 9 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

Even the disciples of the LORD Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH were rebuked by HIM for their hardness of heart.  Regardless of the OLD COVENANT prophecies, and JESUS' own frequently repeated promise that HE would rise from the dead, the disciples forsook HIM and fled into hiding when HE was arrested.  Some were even skeptical and doubted the first reports of MESSIAH'S resurrection until they saw HIM for themselves.  HIS rebuke, in essence, compared their unbelief with hardness of heart. 

If this "hardness of heart" and "unbelief" could exist in the eleven disciples, it could surely happen to us IF we allow it.  Beware! brethren, for fear that there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the LIVING GOD!   We need to "exhort one another daily, while it is called "Today" lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. Today, if you will hear HIS voice — Listen!!! do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion." [Hebrews 3. 12 - 13, 15]  We are partakers of MESSIAH Y’SHUA, if we hold fast to the beginning of our confidence (faithfulness) and remain steadfast to the end. 

The GREAT & MIGHTY GOD is the HOLY ONE WHO fights for us in our wilderness, WHO changes our bitter waters into sweet, WHO speaks to us in our daily lives and is our very LIFE'S BREAD.  How can we help but love the EVER-LIVING LORD GOD with all our heart and follow HIS commands! 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
O LORD GOD of mercy, we trust in YOU. In deep humility we approach YOUR Throne and lay our supplications before YOU. Strengthen our faith in YOU, that with wisdom and courage we may do YOUR will. Help us to right the wrongs we have done to others and give us the grace to pardon those who offend us. Enlighten our minds with YOUR truth and touch our hearts with YOUR mercy. May this day summon our energies to the fulfillment of YOUR perfect plan for our life and may it bring our souls the inner peace in which alone the voice of YOUR SPIRIT is heard. Be with us. O GOD, and receive us in YOUR boundless love for YOU alone are our HOPE and SUPPORT. Amen 
Day 15 of the Omer 

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 a man leaves the synagogue, he should not march with hasty steps; but when he goes to the synagogue, it is right to run.  [Talmud] 

JUDGING DOCTRINAL HERESY      
"Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them. For those who are such do not serve our LORD JESUS CHRIST, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple." [Romans 14. 17 - 18] 

We must exercise sound BIBLICAL discernment and judgment in order that we are able to mark and avoid those professing CHRISTian teachers and leaders who are promoting doctrinal heresy, who cause divisions among true CHRISTian believers.  This judgment must only be based on the doctrine which you have learned from GOD’S HOLY WORD, "lest anyone should deceive you with persuasive words." [Colossians 2. 4] 

"If they do not speak according to this WORD (Law & Testimony), it is because there is no light in them." [Isaiah/Yeshayah 8. 20]  "Thus says the LORD — Stand in the ways and consider, inquire about the old paths, where the good way is, walk it; and you will find rest for your souls." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 6. 16 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

Decisions are not to be based on supposed scholarship, tolerance, or eloquence, for such teachers "by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple." Instead, we must know and apply GOD’S WORD, the HOLY SCRIPTURES.  "The works of the LORD are great, within reach and studied by all who desire and have pleasure in them. HIS work is splendid, honorable and glorious, and HIS righteousness is everlasting." [Psalms (Tehillym) 111. 2 - 3 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  We must be like the Bereans who, when they heard new teachings, "they received the WORD with all readiness, and searched the SCRIPTURES daily to find out whether these things were so." [Acts 17. 11] 

Today, sadly but true most who call themselves followers of MESSIAH (CHRIST-like-ones) have compromised with the so-called scientific world view of evolutionary humanism that controls all secular schools and colleges, preferring to remain on good terms with "the rulers of this age" and only understand the "wisdom of this age...being wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked" [1 Corinthians 2. 6 w/Revelation 3. 17]; thereby trying to avoid the "the offense of the cross." [Galatians 5. 11]  The cross is offensive because it brands man as a hell-deserving sinner; and the only way of salvation is a humbling acknowledgment of Y’SHUA, the REJECTED CREATOR as their personal SAVIOR WHO died for their sins. 

Deception is done simply for personal gain and prestige serving, "their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple." [Romans 16. 18]  "Let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as HE is righteous. Whoever sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning." [1 John 3. 7 - 8] 

The faithfully dedicated BIBLE-believing CHRISTian, will not be deceived by the good words of the deceptive swindlers, but will mark and avoid him. MESSIAH Y’SHUA even taught this truth by asking questions, "Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into the ditch?" [Luke 6. 39] 

Be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil. And the GOD of peace will crush Satan and those who mislead under your feet shortly. [Romans 16. 19 - 20]  May the grace of the LORD Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH be with you always! 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
O YEHOWAH, we thank and bless YOUR NAME forever. Amen
As we bid farewell to Shabbat with the Havdalah (“difference”) Service, we use all of our senses: we taste the wine, smell the spices, see the shadows of candles, hear prayers & songs, and touch family and friends as we wish them a “Tov Sha-vu-a (Good Week).” 
Grace: GOD’S acceptance of me; Faith: my acceptance of HIM; Peace: my acceptance of myself; Love: acceptance of HIS acceptance; Fellowship: your acceptance of me.
Day 14 of the Omer 

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

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Being great does not excuse one from being good. 


EL SHADDAI — GOD ALMIGHTY       
"When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him — I am EL SHADDAI; walk in MY ways and be blameless before ME. I will establish MY covenant between ME and you, and will multiply you exceedingly." [Genesis (Bereshith) 17. 1 - 2 Tanakh, Torah] 

The name EL SHADDAI (ALL-SUFFICIENT ONE, ALMIGHTY GOD) is the description of GOD used some forty-eight times in the OLD COVENANT, this text is its first occurrence.  In the NEW COVENANT this name is used nine times, the last makes it clear to us that no Temple is in the Holy City, "for the LORD GOD, EL SHADDAI , and the LAMB are its Temple." [Revelation 21. 22] 

Accordingly, the first and last books of HOLY SCRIPTURE (First & Last indicates all Books in between) reiterates that our GOD is an OMNIPOTENT GOD, as SHADDAI means ALL-SUFFICIENT NOURISHER [comparable to breasts full of milk (shad in Hebrew means breast)]; the ALMIGHTY, MOST POWERFUL, a term exclusively for the one TRUE GOD.  The Prophet Jeremiah prayed: "Ah, ADONEY YEHOWAH! Behold, YOU made the heavens and the earth with YOUR great might and outstretched arm. Nothing is too difficult for YOU! YOU show lovingkindness to thousandth generation, but repay the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them — O GREAT and MIGHTY GOD, whose NAME is the LORD OF HOSTS, wondrous in purpose and mighty in deed." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 32. 17 - 18 Tanakh, Nevi’im] 


Sarah laughed to herself when GOD said she would bear a son in her old age, but EL SHADDAI respond — "Is anything too hard (wondrous, amazing, incredible, extraordinary) for the LORD? I will return to you at the same season next year, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son." [Genesis (Bereshith) 18. 14 Tanakh, Torah] Many years later, the angel told the virgin Miryam (Mary), engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the House of David, that she would have a SON. She questioned, "How can this be, since I do not know a man?" The angel answered, "with GOD nothing will be impossible." [Luke 1. 34 & 37] 

There are some things in EL SHADDAI that are emphatically impossible however, such as being tempted by evil [James 1. 13], HE cannot lie [Titus 1. 2], or deny HIMSELF [2 Timothy 2. 13]. Therefore, whatever HE does is right and whatever HE says is true. We may not always understand why or how HE does or says a certain thing, but in eternity we will learn that HE is able to do what HE says.  Our GREAT GOD is omnipotent (all-powerful, supreme, invincible)! 

EL SHADDAI did create the universe and all things by HIS spoken word and fashioned mankind into HIS OWN IMAGE.  Since we are fearfully and wonderfully made, we should not desecrate HIS handiwork. "Behold, I am YEHOWAH, ELOHEY of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for ME?" [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 32. 27 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  Absolutely nothing!  EL SHADDAI does all things well! 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Good Sabbath!  We praise and bless YOUR O GOD, for lovingly and graciously giving YOUR Holy Shabbat to all peoples.
Sabbath of Sh’Mini – “Eighth” [Reading: Leviticus 9:1 - 11:47; 1 Samuel 20:18-42; Matthew 3:11-17] 
May we be witnesses of the GOD'S care, love, and glorious presence through the days ahead. Enter each day with joy in our hearts and confidence that SOVEREIGN KING rules and reigns.  And, because of HIS great mercy, HE will continue to use us as HIS messengers of the GOOD NEWS to the perplexed and depraved world around us — our IMMANU’EL, the ANOINTED ONE OF GOD is with us!  My soul will continually bless the MOST HOLY LORD GOD for HE alone is worthy of all praise, reverence, rapturous adoration, and exaltation. 
Day 13 of the Omer 

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. . . 
It is hard to learn from a mistake that you do not acknowledge making. 

WATCH THEREFORE 
"Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the SON OF MAN is coming." [Matthew 25. 13] 

The LORD JESUS, Y’️SHUA ha’️MASHIACH HIMSELF commanded every believer to watch for HIS return. No matter the situation, the time or the place — all who believe are steadfastly charged to watch for Y’️SHUA'S coming. "Therefore you also be ready, for the SON OF MAN is coming at an hour you do not expect." [Matthew 24. 44] 

Since we do not know the day, hour or minute, we are to be watching always.. "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the SON, but only the FATHER. Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is. Watch therefore — lest, coming suddenly HE find you sleeping. And what I say to you, I say to all — WATCH!" [Mark 13. 32, 33, 37] This uncertainty should motivate and encourage faithfulness in the believer. If the believer starts to think, "My MASTER is taking a long time in coming" [Luke 12. 45], there is a very clear and present danger that he will be enticed with sinful temptations and ungodly worldly passions, leading to a falling away. 

Our moment-by-moment attitude and objective should be to "live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the BLESSED HOPE — the glorious appearing of our great GOD and SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST, WHO gave HIMSELF for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for HIMSELF a people that are HIS very own, eager to do what is good." [Titus 2. 12 - 14] 

John records the promise of MESSIAH Y’️SHUA, "Beloved, now we are children of GOD; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when HE is revealed, we shall be like HIM, for we shall see HIM as HE is. And everyone who has this hope in HIM purifies himself, just as HE is pure." [1 John 3. 2 - 3] 

May we remain faithful and continually "abide in HIM; that when HE appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before HIM at HIS coming." [1 John 2. 28] The LORD commands, "Obey MY voice, and I will be your GOD and you shall be MY people; walk only in the way that I have commanded you, that it may go well with you." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 7. 23 Tanakh, Nevi'im] All who are born of HIM patiently live righteously. Wait diligently for GOD'S notable appointed time, the LORD Y’️SHUA ha'MASHIACH will return. Will you be found devoted, faithful and humbly watching? HE is worth waiting for! 


Sha’️alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
Worship, honor, adoration, glory and majesty belong to YOU, our FATHER, the ONLY TRUE & LIVING GOD. We ask YOU through the HOLY SPIRIT, to direct our thoughts to YOU and sanctify us in Truth, YOUR WORD is TRUTH. Burn that Truth into our soul to exalt and glorify YOUR SON, JESUS WHO'S we are and WHO we serve. Thank YOU LORD for YOUR faithfulness and YOUR redeeming love! 
This is Yom HaSho`ah – Holocaust Remembrance Day 
Day 12 of the Omer 

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 best way to get even is to forgive, and let the LORD handle it! 

MESSIAH'S SECOND COMING 
"As I looked on, in the night vision, ONE like the SON OF MAN, came with the clouds of heaven! HE came to the ANCIENT OF DAYS and was presented to HIM. Dominion, glory and kingdom were given to HIM; all peoples and nations of every language must serve HIM. HIS dominion is an everlasting dominion, that shall not pass away, and HIS kingship, one that shall not be destroyed." [Daniel (Danyel) 7. 13 - 14 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

The first time Y’️SHUA, the WORD-MADE-FLESH, came, HE walked the earth in humiliation; the second time HE is coming in a blaze of glory! The first time JESUS came to die; the second time HE will come to judge and reign. The first time the SON OF MAN came to redeem; when HE returns, the LORD JESUS will claim those HE has redeemed. YESHUA came once that HIS heel might be bruised by Satan; the RIGHTEOUS ONE must come again to crush the serpent's head and with a rod-of-iron to dash HIS enemies to pieces. YESHUA ha’️MASHIACH came once to wear a crown of thorns. It is prophesied that HE will come again to wear the diadem of universal dominion. The first time, nails were hammered through HIS hands. When HE returns HE will grasp the "SCEPTER OF SOVEREIGNTY" and shall reign forever! 

Orthodox Jewish theology teaches that there will be two MESSIAHS. The first ONE (MESSIAH Ben’️Yosef) is to be from the House of Joseph WHO will be killed as HE leads Israel against the invading army who came against the land of Israel. [Ezekiel/Yehezke-El 38 - 39] And, after the Jewish people repent, ALMIGHTY GOD will provide the second MESSIAH (MESSIAH Ben’️David) from the House of David WHO will bring peace and righteousness to the nation. The ancient Jewish commentators explain the two descriptions of MESSIAH in the TANAKH (JEWISH OLD COVENANT) — where HE is described as lowly and WHO will be pierced to death. "Rejoice greatly! Fair Zion; Shout! Fair Jerusalem! Behold, your KING is coming to you. HE is victorious, triumphant and having salvation, yet humble, riding on an ass, on a donkey foaled by a she-ass...And I will fill the House of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem with the SPIRIT of grace and pity, compassion and supplication; then they shall look on ME WHOM they have pierced; they will lament because of ME about those who are slain, wailing over them as over a favorite son, showing bitter grief over a firstborn." [Zechariah/Zecharyah 9. 9; 12. 10] Then in Daniel where HE comes with the clouds of heaven. [TALMUD, Succah 52. 1] 

However, nearly one out of every thirty verses in the HOLY SCRIPTURE declares the Second Coming of JESUS, the SON OF MAN. To every mention of HIS First Coming, HIS return is stated eight times! "Now when HE had spoken these things, while they watched, HE was taken up, and a cloud received HIM out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as HE went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, who also said — Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? 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. 9 - 11] 

These two men in white apparel were angels who announced the return of Y’️SHUA. The angels were not mistaken when they announced the MESSIAH'S first advent. From Enoch down to the last prophet declared the second appearing of the LORD Y’️SHUA. The HOLY SPIRIT, by the mouths of the apostles, repeatedly said: "JESUS is coming again!" 

When the disciples were troubled because they were informed that Y’️SHUA would leave them, HE comforted them with these words: "Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in GOD, believe also in ME. In MY FATHER'S house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you.. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to MYSELF; that where I am, there you may be also." [John 14. 1 - 3] GOD'S WORD is true! Heaven and earth shall pass away, but HIS WORD shall stand forever. "GOD is not a man, that HE should lie or be capricious, nor mortal to change HIS mind. Would HE speak and not act, promise and not fulfill?" [Numbers (B'Midvar) 23. 19 Tanakh, Torah] 

Some may term the second appearing of the ANOINTED ONE, the LORD Y’️SHUA as a spiritual coming; but the promise is "this same JESUS." When MESSIAH ascended into heaven, HE was flesh and bones. After HIS resurrection, HE appeared to HIS disciples who thought HE was a ghost. Lovingly, the MASTER encouraged them to handle HIM and see, then HE said — "A spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have." [Luke 24. 39] 

The KING MESSIAH Y’️SHUA will have the marks of the wounds in HIS body also. Thomas (doubting this to be the LORD) was permitted to touch the pierced hands and side of the risen REDEEMER to confirm HIS identity as LORD & SAVIOR. Yes! this same flesh-and-bones JESUS shall come again as HE promised HE would. 

In view of that which is taking place around us, that which our LORD GOD described would occur just before HIS Second Advent. Each of us who have accepted YESHUA as our MESSIAH, LORD and personal SAVIOR can look up, and lift up our heads rejoicing, for our complete and final redemption draws near! 

Sha’️alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
In YOUR mercy, O LORD, remember us and all YOUR children as we enter a new week. O LOVING FATHER, mindful of YOUR covenant, we pray that YOUR love may never forsake us. Even as the rainbow recalls this covenant, so may each new day bring to all men the thought of YOUR gracious promise. Hasten the time when YOUR Law will be written in every heart, from the smallest to the greatest. Then shall mankind do YOUR will and the reward of righteous service shall be peace. 
This is the 17th of Nisan – the 3rd day after Passover when MESSIAH raised victoriously from the grave, this is the Feast of Firstfruits.

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner. 

NEW CREATION 
"For behold, I am creating a New Heavens and a New Earth; the former shall not be remembered, they shall never come to mind. Be glad then and rejoice forever in what I am creating. For I create Jerusalem as a joy, and her people as a delight. I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and have pleasure in MY people." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 65. 17 - 19 Tanakh, Nevi’️im] 

Though thought otherwise, the spiritual values are much more important than the material, as most people think that must live in the real world. However, the fact is, we are not living in the real world at all, but in a world that is dying and soon will completely be burned up and vanish away. "Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath; though the heavens will vanish away like smoke, and the earth wear out like a garment, and those who dwell in it die like gnats, MY salvation will be forever, and MY righteousness will not be abolished." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 51.. 6 Tanakh, Nevi’️im] "Both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up." [2 Peter 3. 10] "The world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of GOD abides forever." [1 John 2. 17] 

This is not the world that the MOST HIGH ALMIGHTY GOD created, since that world was "very good." [Genesis/Bereshith 1. 31] But because "sin entered into the world, and death by sin" [Romans 5. 12], "the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now." [Romans 8. 22] In fact, this world is not even as it was soon after GOD’️S curse, for "the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished " [1 Peter 3. 6] 

This present-day world is now under the dominion of Satan, who is "the prince of this world" [John 12. 31] and of "all the kingdoms of this world." [Matthew 4. 8] The LORD, Y’️SHUA ha’️MASHIACH came to and "gave HIMSELF for our sins, that HE might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our GOD and FATHER, to WHOM be glory forever and ever. Amen." [Galatians 1. 4 - 5] Clearly, this world will not even come to mind as "the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of GOD." [Romans 8. 21] 

Therefore, we must "not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind." [Romans 12. 2] It is imperative that we "live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our GREAT GOD and SAVIOR CHRIST JESUS, WHO 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. 12 - 14] 

"I am your HOLY ONE, the LORD, your KING, the CREATOR of Israel." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 43. 15 Tanakh, Nevi’️im] "For as the new heavens and the new earth which I will make shall remain before ME — says YEHOWAH — So shall your descendants and your name remain." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 66. 22 Tanakh, Nevi’️im] If we have been born anew in the LORD Y’️SHUA, our true citizenship is in the world to come and we are HIS ambassadors in this alien land. 

Sha’️alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
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.

Great opportunities disguise themselves as unsolvable problems. Unsolvable, that is, without GOD’️S wisdom. That is where the ALMIGHTY ONE does HIS greatest work…the more impossible the situation, the greater are HIS accomplishments. 

PASSING THROUGH THE SEA 
"But the children of Israel had walked on dry land in the midst of the sea, the waters forming a wall for them on their right and on their left. So the LORD delivered Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians. Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the shore of the sea." [Exodus (Shemot) 14. 29 – 30 Tanakh, Torah] 

Looking for a natural explanation instead of believing what HOLY SCRIPTURES accurately accounts for is what humanists and liberal theologians try using to explain this Red Sea crossing. Those who deny the literal account of GOD’️S wonders say the Israelites simply crossed over on a shallow portion of the Sea of Reeds, which is at the extreme northern end of the west arm of the Red Sea before it became the Suez Canal. 

However, this was another of GOD’️S extraordinary miracles, and it happened just as is clearly reveal in the WORD OF TRUTH — it was not a mere wind storm that drove the shallow waters seaward. "Moses held out his arm over the Sea and the LORD drove back the sea with a strong east wind all that night, and turned the sea into dry ground. The waters were split, and the Israelites went into the midst sea on dry ground, and the waters were a wall to them on their right hand and on their left." [Exodus (Shemot) 14. 21 – 22 Tanakh, Torah] 

A great path opened up through the deep waters, they were supernaturally restrained as a wall of water was on both sides of the wide pathway, and it was deep enough to drown all of Pharaoh’️s army when the waters collapsed on top of them after the "Chosen of the LORD" were safely across. Yes, it is the LORD GOD "WHO dried up the Sea, the waters of the great deep; that made the depths of the Sea a road for the redeemed to cross over." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 51. 10 Tanakh, Nevi’️im] 

The passage was through the Eastern arm of the Red Sea, which enabled the Israelites to cross "from the Red Sea...into the Wilderness of Shur." [Exodus/Shemot) 15. 22] A miracle of such a enormous magnitude is nothing less than the creative power of the ALMIGHTY ONE WHO created a force of energy that was powerful enough to hold the deep waters to be firm walls standing against the force of gravity. 

Later generations continued to look back on this event as being colossal and awesome proof of the MASTER CREATOR’️S divine call of Israel. The Song of Moses declares such praises: "YOUR right hand, O LORD, is glorious in power; YOUR right hand, O LORD, shatters the enemy! In the greatness of YOUR excellence YOU shatter YOUR opponents; YOU sent forth YOUR wrath; it consumed them like stubble. At the blast of YOUR nostrils the waters piled up; the floods stood upright (Hebrew: natsab — stand firm, fast, still, stay up) like a wall; the depths congealed (Hebrew: qapha’️ — set firm, hardened, thicken, settle) in the heart of the Sea." [Exodus (Shemot) 15. 6 – 8 Tanakh, Torah] 

Centuries later, the Apostle Paul recalled this extraordinary miracle — "Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea, all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the Sea, all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that SPIRITUAL ROCK that followed them, and that ROCK was MESSIAH. But with most of them GOD was not well pleased, for their bodies were scattered in the wilderness....all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition (warning, instruction), upon whom the ends of the ages have come." [1 Corinthians 10. 1 – 5, 11] 

Who is like YOU, glorious in holiness, KING OF GLORY in all that YOUR hands have established? The LORD shall reign forever and ever, there is none like our GREATLY MAGNIFICENT & AWESOME GOD. 

Sha’️alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
Welcome Sabbath of Pesach – “Festival of Passover† [Reading: Deuteronomy 15:19 - 16:17; Numbers 28:19-25; Isaiah 10:32 – 12:6; John 20:15-20] 
The final days of Passover celebrate the splitting of the sea. This year, let’️s celebrate a journey through our own waves, a redemption from our own personal Egypt, and understand that our biggest barricade to freedom was never actually the sea; it was ourselves. As we celebrate Passover, we leave behind the constrictions of Egypt and break through our own personal barricades, which at times may seem as vast as the sea. GOD WHO brought us out of Egypt and split the sea is surely capable of delivering us from our own personal troubles. With effort and faith, nothing is out of reach. 
Omer Day 6/Pesach Day 7 (Festival of Passover/Unleavened Bread) 
Chol Hamo’️ed (Festival Weekday) 

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 of the wise, spoken quietly, should be heard rather than the bellowing shout of a foolish ruler. 

CAPTIVATING EXPERIENCE 
"I, Koheleth (the Assembler of sayings) son of David, was king in Jerusalem over Israel. I set my mind to study and search with wisdom all that happens under the sun. An unhappy and burdensome task that, which GOD gave men to be concerned with that they may be exercised." [Ecclesiastes (Kohelet) 1. 12 - 13 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

These words are from Solomon himself, the one who asked the MOST HOLY LORD GOD for wisdom to rule the people of Israel. The RIGHTEOUS ONE gave him his request, plus more. "Because you have asked for the wisdom and knowledge to be able to govern and judge MY people over whom I have made you king, wisdom and knowledge are granted to you; and I will grant you also wealth, property and glory, the like of which no king before you has had, nor shall any after you have." [2 Chronicles (Dibre Hayamin Bet) 1. 11 - 12 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

Solomon experienced every human experience possible with forethought. His planned intention was to experience the effect it would have on ones life. [Ecclesiastes/Kohelet] His ultimate downfall was in taking an assorted collection of wives, who turned him from the ONLY TRUE GOD. This happened after the ETERNAL MASTER had warned Solomon not to "multiply wives, lest his heart go astray" and they would lead him into idolatry. [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 17. 17; 7. 1 - 5] 

Solomon confessed that wisdom strengthens the wise — and all this he proved by his own wisdom and experience. Yet, "wisdom" was far from him. King Solomon was put to shame, and in the end, his wisdom amounted to nothing. "All this I tested with wisdom. I thought — I will be wise — but it eludes me." [Ecclesiastes (Kohelet) 7. 23 Tanakh, Kethuvim] Solomon's conclusion: "Remember your CREATOR! Revere and fear GOD and keep HIS commandments! This is the whole duty of mankind." [Ecclesiastes (Kohelet) 12. 13 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

However, a truly WISE HOLY GOD/MAN came to be perfected, in fact, by the things HE experienced. "JESUS, WHO was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that HE, by the grace of GOD, might taste death for everyone. For it was fitting for HIM, for WHOM are all things and by WHOM are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the CAPTAIN of their salvation perfect through sufferings." [Hebrews 2. 9 - 10] 

MESSIAH Y’️SHUA left HIS place in Glory and became a MAN that HE might (and I say this reverently) "be made" perfect. This GREAT ETERNAL LOVING CREATOR Of everything, WHO knows all things (omniscient) could not die. Although HE had the knowledge of death, HE thought it important to know by experience. According to the Law, a kinsman could redeem a brother. [Leviticus/Vayikra 25. 48 - 49] The LORD Y’️SHUA ha'MASHIACH, our KINSMAN REDEEMER, bought us back after we sold ourselves into sin. 

CHRIST JESUS, "WHO, in the days of HIS flesh, when HE had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to HIM WHO was able to save HIM from death, and was heard because of HIS godly fear, though HE was the SON, yet HE learned obedience by the things which HE suffered. And having been perfected, HE became the AUTHOR of eternal salvation to all who obey HIM." [Hebrews 5. 7 - 9] The DELIVERER is now seated at our FATHER'S right hand and is interceding for us as the GREAT HIGH PRIEST. "For the Law appoints as high priests men who have weakness, but the WORD OF THE OATH, which came after the Law, appoints the SON (KING Y’️SHUA, the MESSIAH) WHO has been perfected forever." [Hebrews 7. 28] 

MESSIAH Y’️SHUA is LORD and is preeminent over all. HE was, in all points, tempted as we are. . . yet never sinned. "For we do not have a HIGH PRIEST who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin." [Hebrews 4. 15] "Indeed, a GREATER than Solomon is here" [Matthew 12. 42; Luke 11. 31] . . . HIM we should hear and be quick to obey. 


Sha’️alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
With great love YOU have loved us, O our GOD, and with exceeding compassion YOU have borne with us. Our fathers believed and trusted in YOU; therefore you taught them the laws of life, and showed them the ways of wisdom. We implore YOU, O MERCIFUL FATHER, to grant us discernment, that we may understand and fulfill all the TEACHINGS of YOUR WORD. Make us gladly obedient to YOUR commandments and fill our hearts with love and reverence for YOU. In YOU we put our trust; we rejoice and delight in YOUR help, for with YOU alone is salvation, and peace in the soul of man. YOU have called us as teachers of YOUR Law; YOU have chosen us for a holy mission to mankind; therefore do we joyfully lift up our voices and proclaim YOUR magnificence. Praised are YOU, O GOD, WHO has chosen us in love. We give praise to YOUR HOLY NAME and thank YOU for Y’️SHUA, our REDEEMER.

Thought FOR TODAY 


A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY... 
One is truly blind when you cannot see what is wrong with what GOD calls sin. 

PERFECT TIMING 
"The righteous man perishes, and no one considers and takes it to heart; pious men are taken away, and no one gives thought that because of evil, the righteous was taken away." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 57. 1 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

Typically, the death of a promising young man or woman seem perplexingly tragic. This is true and even more painful in the sudden death of a child. HOLY SCRIPTURE tells of an incident when it was a blessing in the case of the child of Jeroboam since his little son was the only one of that household who would be mourned. "As for you (Ahijah speaking to the wife of Jeroboam), go back home; as soon as you set foot in the town, the child will die. And all Israel shall mourn for him and bury him, for he alone of Jeroboam’️s family will be brought to burial, because in him there is found something good toward LORD, the GOD of Israel." [1 Kings (Melakhim Alef) 14. 12 - 13 Tanakh, Nevi’️im] 

A CHRISTian can be confident in GOD’️S total plan for their lives no matter their age for they will not be "cut off before their time" for we are confident that no event will occur before the MAGNIFICENT CREATOR’️S perfect timing, for HE "works all things after the counsel of HIS OWN will." [Ephesians 1. 11] We know that GOD loves us greatly because HE sent HIS ONLY-BEGOTTEN SON WHO HE dearly loved to die for us. Therefore, "all things work together for good to those who love GOD, to those who are the called according to HIS purpose. For whom HE foreknew, HE also predestined to be conformed to the image of HIS SON." [Romans 8. 28 - 29] "The Gospel, according to the power of GOD, WHO has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to HIS OWN purpose and grace which was given to us in MESSIAH Y’️SHUA before time began." [2 Timothy 1. 8 – 9] "Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of GOD commit their souls to HIM in doing good, as to a FAITHFUL CREATOR." [1 Peter 4. 19] 

Indeed, the ALL-KNOWING ONE has allowed the righteous to perish and the merciful to be taken away to spare them from "the evil to come" either increasing tribulation in the world, or even the further growth of developing sin in their own lives. It may be that their untimely departure "to depart and be with CHRIST…is far better" [Philippians 1. 23] and will be used of GOD to lead others to MESSIAH and salvation. It also should give their loved ones greater and more enthusiastic incentive to learn more of the WORD OF GOD and HIS gracious promises, as well as to forsake sin in their own lives. In situations where death seems to have been hastened because of a great zeal for the LORD, the friends and loved ones can rejoice that the martyr’️s "crown of life" [Revelation 2. 10] is awaiting them. 

Many other things that we cannot yet understand may exist "For who has known the mind of the LORD? Or who has become HIS counselor? Or who has first given to HIM and it shall be repaid to him? For of HIM and through HIM and to HIM are all things, to WHOM be glory forever. Amen" [Romans 11.. 34 - 36] However, we do know that not even a sparrow "falls to the ground apart from your FATHER'S will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows." [Matthew 10. 29 - 31] 

Though we may now not fully understand, we can rest in the fact that our ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY KING OF GLORY does all things well. 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
May the MOST HIGH LORD GOD anoint and empower you daily. Remember, worship is always essential– and our focus is on Y’️SHUA, the ONE WHO is our ROCK OF AGES, our FORTRESS, our LIGHT & SALVATION, our soon-returning MESSIAH & KING. Come into HIS PRESENCE reverently with thanksgiving and enter HIS courts with praise.
