A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
The men that move the world are the men the world cannot move. 

 

DEATH IN THE POT     
"Then they served it for the men to eat.  While they were still eating of the stew, they cried out — O man of GOD, there is death in the pot! — And they could not eat it." [2 Kings (Melakhim Bet) 4. 40 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

There was a famine in the land and the disciples of the prophets that were sitting before Elisha were hungry.  Elisha said to his servant, "Put the large pot on the fire and cook a stew for the disciples of the prophets." [v. 38]  So some of them went into the fields to gather sprouts to enhance the flavor of the meal.  They came across a wild vine and picked from it wild gourds, as many as his garment would hold.  Not knowing what they were, the gourds were sliced up and put into the pot.   When finished cooking, the meal was served.  However, after tasting the stew, it was realized that the succulent  gourmet meal was poisonous, and the recipient tasters cried out — "O man of GOD, there is death in the pot!"  The wild gourds had immediately caused severe cramps. 


The wild gourd symbolize false doctrine.  When scholars or preachers want to spice up the old truths of HOLY SCRIPTURE with some new and superficially attractive embellishments, it only contaminates the "sincere milk of the WORD" [1 Peter 2. 2], which brings death to those who partake of such fatal poison. 

Like leaven which the woman who took and secretly "hid in three measures of meal till it was all leavened" [Matthew 13. 33], Elisha's creative disciples unsuspectingly added the seemingly pleasant ingredient, and it permeated the whole pot of stew with its deadly poison.  Even the Apostle Paul emphatically stressed, "Who hindered you from obeying the truth?  This persuasion does not come from HIM WHO calls you.  A little leaven leavens the whole lump." [Galatians 5. 7 - 9] 


There was a remedy for the deadly poison, however.  Elisha said, "fetch some flour" and he threw it into the pot then served it to the people that they might not hunger.  And there was no longer anything harmful in the pot. [2 Kings/Melakhim Bet 4. 41]  A similar scenario happened when Moses threw the piece of wood into the bitter waters of Mara, and the LORD GOD caused the water to become sweet. [Exodus/Shemot 15. 23 - 25]  Truth always triumphs over deceit and lies. 

The purifying "flour" with Elisha and the "piece of wood" of Moses' time, symbolize the TRUE LIFE-GIVING WORD OF GOD.  The WRITTEN WORD which is the TRUE BREAD, the HEAVENLY MANNA by which man must live.  As is written, "Man shall not live by bread alone, BUT by every WORD that proceeds from the mouth of GOD." [Matthew 4. 4; Deuteronomy/Devarim 8. 3]  The humbling remedy for the poisonous doctrines of the world must always be the pure, unadulterated WORD OF GOD faithfully taught and exhorted. 

As we come to the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY with a sincere heart, HE will forgive our sins and take away this deadly defilement of deceptive sin and give us everlasting life in the TRUTH of HIS HOLY WORD. 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!  
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
“If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  May YOU, MOST HOLY ONE, be blessed forever, even to all eternity beyond all blessings and hymns, praises and consolations that may be uttered in this world; blessed, praised & honoured, extolled & glorified, adored & exalted above all else for YOU are worthy. 

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. . .
There is much material and many counselors available to those who are experiencing rough times; but in the long run, only GOD’S TRUTH — found in HOLY SCRIPTURE — can equip people for the difficult times because only the ETERNAL WORD provides the context in which temporal problems can be understood, and only the ALMIGHTY LORD GOD can supply the resources which human problems demand. Think about it! 

HELL, A LITERAL PLACE     
"The SON OF MAN will send out HIS angels, and they will gather out of HIS Kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire.  There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth." [Matthew 13. 41 - 42] 

The LOVING MESSIAH taught the importance of love and forgiveness, so how could HE speak such words like these?  In fact, Y’SHUA had more to say about hell and eternal punishment than any other speaker or writer in the HOLY SCRIPTURE.  Since HE is the CREATOR, "for by HIM all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible" [Colossians 1. 16], the coming JUDGE "the FATHER judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the SON" [John 5. 22], and the only MAN who has died and risen permanently from the dead "HE died for all…and rose again" [2 Corinthians 5. 15], we would do well to believe and heed HIS warnings.  HE knows of what HE speaks! 

There are more prophesies of warning of the literal hell and the Lake of Fire:  "Then HE will also say to those on the left hand — Depart from ME, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels." [Matthew 25. 41]  "So it will be at the end of the age.  The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just, and cast them into the furnace of fire.  There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth." [Matthew 13. 49 - 50]  "If your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out.  It is better for you to enter the KINGDOM OF GOD with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire — where their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched." [Mark 9. 47 – 28; also see Mark 9. 42 - 50]   The OLD COVENANT also gives warnings from the LORD GOD, "And they shall go out and look upon the corpses of the men who have rebelled against ME; their worm shall not die, nor their fire is not quenched; they shall be a horror to all flesh." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 66. 24 Tanakh, Nevi’im]   "Behold, MY anger and MY fury will be poured out...It will burn with none to quench it." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 7. 20 Tanakh, Nevi’im]  Appropriately, there are many such warnings, but how can we reconcile such alarming admonitions of ever-lasing torment with a FAITHFUL GOD’S OWN nature of love? 

The fact is, hell and the Lake of Fire were not prepared for people, but for the devil and his angels that rebelled against GOD.  "For if GOD did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment." [2 Peter 2. 4]   "The angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, HE has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day." [Jude 1. 6]   The devil has been a rebel against the MOST HIGH since the beginning, determining to be like the HOLY MASTER. 

When people follow the devil in this same rebellious path, rejecting GOD’S WORD, they are showing they would be more comfortable with Satan than with the PERFECT DESIGNER in eternity, so the LORD is giving them their choice.  Because of HIS great love, the ALMIGHTY ONE warns repeatedly of what is coming.  As HIS faithful followers, we too should warn others to "keep yourselves in the love of GOD, looking for the mercy of our LORD JESUS CHRIST unto eternal life.  And on some have compassion, making a distinction; but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh." [Jude 1. 22 - 23] 


Love like Y’SHUA loves, warn your family, friends, acquaintances, all you come into contact with, that there is everlasting punishment for the wicked, but eternal life for those who come to MESSIAH and have been redeemed by HIS precious blood. 


Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!!  
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
“If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
  If we are to prevail, we must unite under the banner of the Jewish MESSIAH — celebrating our unique heritage, our unique message, and our unique ability to bring inspiration to the world.  May your primary focus be, not on “how we die” — but rather on “how we live.”  
  Let us continue to rejoice in ALMIGHTY GOD’S plan to bring us into the Promised Land as we serve and honor the HOLY ONE completely.  Daily, let us renew our commitment to walk in loving obedience as an expression of gratitude for the ALMIGHTY'S goodness and grace. 


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. . .
For every problem, there is an opportunity. 

STAND STILL     
"It is not for you to fight this battle; STAND STILL, wait, and see your deliverance by the LORD, O Judah and Jerusalem; do not fear or be dismayed by this great multitude; go forth to meet them tomorrow and the LORD will be with you." [2 Chronicles (Dibre Hayamin Bet) 20. 17 Tanakh, Kethu

The Ammorites, Mobites and Edomites had organized a great multitude seeking to destroy Judah under King Jehoshaphat.  However, the king and his people came together to "seek the LORD GOD" in prayer for deliverance, and the SPIRIT OF THE SOVEREIGN ONE spoke through Jahaziel assuring them that "the battle is GOD'S, not yours." [2 Chronicles (Dibre Hayamin Bet) 20. 15 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

Then the INFINITELY MAJESTIC CREATOR sent the answer as to how the battle was to be won, the strange instructions were "Stand Still (Hebrew: yatsav)."  Just watch the MERCIFUL MASTER'S wondrous hand accomplish it!  And HE did.  All their enemies were constrained by the LORD to fight and destroy each other, without the Israelites having to fight at all.  In the same way, at the Red Sea when everything looked hopeless, "Moses said to the people — Have no fear!  Stand Still! and witness the deliverance which the LORD will work for you today." [Exodus (Shemot) 14. 13 Tanakh, Torah]  So the whole multitude obeyed and all Pharaoh's armies were overthrown in the middle of the Sea. 

In Isaiah's day, when Israel was tempted to call on pagan Egypt for help against pagan Assyria, the HOLY ONE said concerning Israel's armies:  "Truly, I call her Rehab-Hem-Shebeth (her strength is to sit still)." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 30. 7 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

As the ship was being beaten, thrashed and defeated in the storm, and the terrified sailors were about to abandon the boat, when Paul warned, "Unless these men stay in the ship, you cannot be saved." [Acts 27. 31]   So they stayed (stood still), and the ALMIGHTY ONE spared every man. 

When we have done all we can and the situation seems hopeless, this is the time to "sit still" and trust our INVINCIBLE GOD to work it out in HIS OWN good way.  "Only you must not rebel against the LORD.  Have no fear then of the people of the land, for they shall be as food for our consumption; their protection has departed from them, but the LORD is with us.  Have no fear of them!" [Numbers (B'Midvar) 14. 9 Tanakh, Torah] 


The unique LORD GOD SUPREME specializes in things thought impossible.  Do you have any rivers you think are un-crossable?  "Be still, and know that I am ELOHEY; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!  The LORD YEHOWAH T’SEVAOT (LORD GOD OF HOSTS) is with us; the ELOHEY of Yaakov (GOD of Jacob) is our FORTRESS." [Psalms (Tehillym) 46. 10 - 11 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 


Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
  “If I forget you, O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5
 While this breath of life is in me, HOLY LORD of all worlds, I worship YOU.  Help us, O GOD, to banish from our hearts all vain glory, pride of worldly possessions, and self-sufficient leaning on our own reason. 

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. . .
May the time not be distant, O GOD, when YOUR HOLY NAME shall be worshipped in all the earth, when unbelief shall disappear and error be no more. 
 
OUR KINSMAN REDEEMER     
"In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with GOD, and the WORD was GOD." [John 1. 1] 
 
The LORD JESUS is "GOD THE WORD" WHO was from the beginning.  And when "the fullness of the time had come, GOD sent forth HIS SON, born of a woman, born under the Law, to redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons." [Galatians 4. 4 - 5] 
 
Since sin separates us from GOD'holiness, we needed a SINLESS REDEEMER to pay the price for our salvation.  The LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH became that "one MEDIATOR between GOD and men, the MANCHRIST JESUS, WHO gave HIMSELF a ransom for all, to be testified in due time." [1 Timothy 2. 5 - 6]   GOD THE WORD became MAN to accomplish and fulfill the requirements of the Law:  "If a resident alien among you becomes rich, and one of your kinsman who dwells by him becomes poor, and gives himself to the resident alien among you, or to a member of the alien's family, he may be redeemed again even after he has sold himself over.  ONE OF HIS KINSMEN SHALL REDEEM HIM." [Leviticus (Vayikra25. 47 - 48 Tanakh, Torah] 
 
"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]   The LORD Y’SHUA, the GOD/MAN"had to be made like HIS brethren, that Hmight be a merciful and faithful HIGH PRIEST in things pertaining to GOD, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.  For in that HHIMSELF has suffered, being tempted, His able to aid those who are tempted." [Hebrews 2. 17 - 18]   "The SON OF GOD has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know HIM WHO is true; and we are in HIM WHO is true, in HIS SON JESUS CHRIST.  This is the TRUE GOD and ETERNAL LIFE." [1 John 5. 20]   MESSIAH Y’SHUA is"the GRACE OF GOD that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age." [Titus 2. 11 - 12] 
 
To find this AMAZING GRACE, we must "turn back to YOU, O LORD, and we will be restored"[Lamentations/Ekhah 5. 21]; come humbly to the BLESSED SAVIORthe LORD Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH, confess your sins, and receive HIS mercy and forgiveness.  "If we confess our sins, His faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." [1 John 1. 9] 
 
So, "let us come boldly to the Throne of Grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need." [Hebrews 4. 16]   Our LOVING REDEEMER awaits and invites whosoever will — "Come!" 
 
 
Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!  
“If I forget you,
 O Yerushalayim, let my right hand wither.” Psalms 137:5  
  As we celebrate Melave Malka (end of Sabbath) we bid you a good week. 
H
EAVENLY FATHER, teach us to emulate YOUR OWN grace and mercy. Cause YOUR truth to fall upon our hearts like seed upon fertile ground. And, may we learn to love YOUR Law ever more deeply and to find in it the beauty of holiness. Amen  
  May you have good health, much laughter, simcha (joy), few tears, memorable moments, and many rich blessings come from theMASTER! 
 
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 word prophet (Hebrew — nabiy') is created from the two words, "before speaking."  Thus, a true prophet spends more time listening to MIGHTY SOVEREIGN ONE than speaking for HIM.  

THE LAW, MY DELIGHT      
"My tongue shall declare YOUR promise, for all YOUR commandments are just.  Lend YOUR hand to help me, for I have chosen YOUR precepts.  I have longed for YOUR salvation, O LORD; YOUR TEACHING is my delight." [Psalms (Tehillym) 119. 172 - 174 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 


The Laws of ETERNAL GOD are "holy, and the commandment holy and just and good." [Romans 7. 12]  Since the natural man "grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts." [Ephesians 4. 22]   It is written, "Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the BOOK OF THE LAW, to do them.  But that no one is justified by the Law in the sight of GOD is evident, for — the just shall live by faith.  Yet the Law is not of faith, but — the man who does them shall live by them." [Galatians 3. 10 - 12]

"May YOUR tender mercy reach me, that I may live; for YOUR TEACHINGS is my delight." [Psalms (Tehillym) 119. 77 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  "Were not YOUR TEACHINGS my delight I would then have perished in my affliction.  I will never neglect YOUR precepts for YOU preserved my life through them.  I am YOURS; Save me!  For I have turned to YOUR precepts." [Psalms (Tehillym) 119. 92 - 94 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

When a person accepts the LORD YESHUA as their MESSIAH & SAVIOR, the old nature dies and we become a new creation.  And with CHRIST in us, we have the hope of glory. [Colossians 1. 27]   "CHRIST has redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us." [Galatians 3. 13]   When we have the HEAVENLY MASTER'S Laws in our heart and mind [Hebrews 1. 16], we keep HIS commands because we love HIM WHO died for us.  "For I delight in the Law of GOD according to the inward man." [Romans 7. 22] 

"Keep MY COMMANDMENTS and live, MY TEACHING as the apple of your eye." [Proverbs (Mishle) 7. 2 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  The wonderful promises of the TRUE & LOVING GOD are true, and HE is well pleased when HIS Law is the apple of our eye. 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
  Welcome Sabbath! Come my dear friend...let us go out to meet the Sabbath Queen!  Come, O Bride, the Sabbath presence is eagerly awaited, and joyously welcomed!  
Sabbath of Terumah – “Heave Offering” [Reading: Exodus 25:1 - 27:19; 1 Kings 5:12 – 6:3; Mark 12:35-44] 
  We praise and bless YOU, our GREAT GOD, for lovingly and graciously giving YOUR Holy Shabbat to all peoples.  YOU, O LORD, shall reign, YOU alone over all YOUR works on Mount Zion, the dwelling place of YOUR glory, and in Jerusalem, YOUR Holy City — as it is written in YOUR HOLY WORD — The LORD shall reign for ever, YOUR GOD, O Zion, unto all generations.  HalleluYAH!  We thank YOU, GREAT & MIGHTY GOD for by YOUR grace we were taught the sanctity of the weekly day of rest and the Sabbath is the sign of the tie that binds us to YOU.  
  May you receive blessings in abundance as you rest and fellowship with the LORD GOD.  Enjoy tranquility and harmony as you come together this Sabbath! 

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

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Fear is not a destination. . . it is simply a tour guide. 

MAKER & CREATOR     
"Come, let us worship and bow down, let us knee before the LORD our MAKER, for HE is our GOD and we are the people of HIS pasture, and the sheep of HIS hand." [Psalms/Tehillym 95. 6 - 7] 

ALMIGHTY GOD is both CREATOR (BARA) and MAKER ('ASAH) of all things, including the image of GOD in man.  In Genesis we are told that GOD said, "Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness"  [Genesis/Bereshith 1. 26 - 27], and also that HE "created man in HIS OWN image." [Genesis/Bereshith 1. 2 - 3]  Likewise, on the seventh day, GOD "ceased from all HIS work of creation which HE had made." [Genesis/Bereshith 2. 3] The terms, CREATOR and MAKER are similar, but are not the same, although they appear to be used interchangeably.  Creation was called into existence, whereas the work of making is that of organizing created entities into complex arrangements.  Only GOD, the MASTER DESIGNER, is capable and proficient in creating. 

HOLY SCRIPTURE states emphatically that the HEAVENLY ARCHITECT created man in HIS image, and HE also made man in HIS image.  Thus, HE called into existence the spiritual component of man’s nature, not shared in any degree with animals.  The MASTER DESIGNER created and made man, not only with a complex, highly organized human body, but also fashioned them into that image that GOD HIMSELF would one day assume when HE became an incarnate human being.  In this way HE is both CREATOR and MAKER of HIS image in each person. 

That image has been marred because of sin, but through the redeeming work of the LORD JESUS, we have been "renewed in knowledge after the image of HIM that created him — for CHRIST is all and in all." [Colossians 3. 10]  And, the GREAT OMNIPOTENT FASHIONER "will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to HIS glorious body." [Philippians 3. 21]  "For we are HIS workmanship, created in MESSIAH Y’SHUA for good works, which GOD prepared beforehand that we should walk in them." [Ephesians 2. 10] 

May we each individually humble ourselves and kneel before the LORD GOD our CREATOR & MAKER and allow HIM to transform us completely into a chosen, precious and pleasing vessel of service for the KING’S use.  How much more glorious our lives would be if we would allow the INCREDIBLY WONDROUS SAVIOR complete management. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
  O GOD, YOU are our REFUGE and our HOPE, we glorify YOUR NAME.  YOU are the LIVING GOD, YOUR WORDS bring life and light to the soul.  YOU are the strength of our life, the ROCK of our salvation.  YOUR Kingdom and YOUR Truth abide forever.  
  Praised are YOU, our REDEEMER, the HOLY ONE of Israel.  We praise 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 WORD.  Enlighten our eyes in YOUR Law that we may cling to YOUR commandments.  Thank YOU for YOUR saving power, for from YOU comes our help.  Draw us nearer to YOU to serve YOU in faithfulness.  
  Joyfully, we lift our voices and proclaim YOUR PRECIOUS NAME.   With GOD, it is crucial to remember that no matter how we feel about HIM, HIS love for us is unwavering.
Rosh Chodesh (new moon of Adar) begins at evening. 

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

Wealth leads to anxiety but wisdom leads to peace of mind. 

THE WAY     
"JESUS said — I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE. No one comes to the FATHER except through ME." [John 14. 6] 

This verse is clearly one of the most loved verses in HOLY SCRIPT.   Intensely emphatic it states that there is no other way to come to the HEAVENLY FATHER except through the LORD JESUS.  And, there is no truth other then what is found and centered on Y’SHUA.  In HIM alone is eternal life bestowed to the believer through faith. 

All who teach otherwise are "thieves and robbers" of the soul, for MESSIAH Y’SHUA alone is "THE DOOR." [John 10. 8 - 9]  The ONLY-BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD is the GREAT SHEPHERD of the sheep, the only DOOR or WAY to heaven.  The LORD JESUS is "THE LIGHT of the world" [John 8. 12] to a world otherwise blackened by sin's ominous darkness.  "For it is GOD WHO commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the Glory of GOD in the face of JESUS CHRIST." [2 Corinthians 4. 6]  The BELOVED SON OF GOD, Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH, is the unique MAGNIFICENT ONE WHO is "the brightness of HIS (GOD THE FATHER) glory and the EXPRESS IMAGE of HIS PERSON." [Hebrews 1. 3] 

The SON OF MAN, the LORD MESSIAH Y’SHUA, is "THE BREAD of Life from GOD...the LIVING BREAD that came down from heaven.  If anyone eats of this BREAD, he will live forever; and the BREAD that I shall give is MY flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world." [John 6. 48, 51]   JESUS, the MIGHTY I AM , the LIVING WORD OF GOD, is the only ETERNAL LIFE-SUSTAINING FOOD for the hungry soul. 

The HORN OF DAVID, Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH is the revealed "LIVING WATER."  HE bids, "if anyone thirsts, let him come to ME and drink. Whoever believes in ME, as the SCRIPTURE has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water." [John 7. 37 - 38]  Only the LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH can satisfy the thirsty soul. 

The ANOINTED ONE is the "TRUE VINE" in WHOM we must abide or we are worthless and will surely fail.  "I am the TRUE VINE...I am the VINE, you are the branches.  He who abides in ME, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without ME you can do nothing." [John 15. 1, 5] 

Evidence of the SCRIPTURES make it abundantly clear that there is salvation in none other "for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." [Acts 4. 12]  "Everyone who invokes the NAME OF THE LORD shall escape (be saved)." [Joel (Yoel) 2. 32 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

The LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH is the ALL-SUFFICIENT WAY, the PERFECT WAY, the ONLY WAY and all who want to come, can come to GOD THE FATHER through HIM.  There is no other way, but through the PRECIOUS LORD JESUS CHRIST.  How wondrously amazing! 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
  Let’s not bother focusing on the time we wasted or the opportunities we didn't use.  That was yesterday. Today is another chance to become who we want to be.  We can turn our regrets into lessons and our failures into stepping stones.  May those steps lead you in a closer walk with the LORD OF 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. . .
Do not confuse the image of life with life itself. 

PROMISED – NEW CREATION     
"Raise your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: Though the heavens should melt away like smoke, and the earth wear out like a garment, and its inhabitants die out like gnats; MY victory and salvation shall stand, MY triumph and righteousness shall remain unbroken." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 51. 6 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

There is a glorious future awaiting the redeemed of the LORD.  Although the MOST HIGH OMNIPOTENT GOD'S primeval creation of the heavens and the earth is eternal [Psalms/Tehillym 148], these are now groaning in pain under the effects of sin and the curse.  When our KING, the LORD Y’SHUA returns, all will be made new and right and "creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the GLORIOUS LIBERTY of the children of GOD." [Romans 8. 21] 

Moreover, the scars of sin and death will even be burned away by the refining fires of the ALMIGHTY ONE for "the LORD is not slack concerning HIS promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.  But the DAY OF THE LORD will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.  Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you 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. 9 - 12] 

There are explicit references in WRITTEN HOLY SCRIPTURES to these great promises of a "new heaven and earth" which assures us that they will be so wonderful this present earth and its heavens will soon be totally forgotten: "For as the new heaven and the new earth which I will make shall endure by MY will — declares the LORD — So shall your seed and your name endure." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 66. 22 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  This new heaven and earth will remain eternally and so will all who dwell there, with their true spiritual children.  "For behold! I am creating a new heaven and a new earth; the former things shall not be remembered, they shall never come to mind." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 65. 17 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

"Nevertheless we, according to HIS promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells." [2 Peter 3. 13]   Not only will sin be absent, but the results of sin and the curse will have no place there.  "Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away.  Also there was no more sea. And GOD will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying.  There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." [Revelation 21. 1, 4] 

"Heaven and earth will pass away, but MY WORDS will by no means pass away." [Matthew 24. 35]  The TESTIMONIES of the MIGHTY KING are true and they are our assurance of an eternal inheritance in HIM.  Such unfathomable free gifts we can receive, just for the taking through Believing Faith. 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
  Consider your latter end; fear GOD, the HOLY CREATOR, take heed to HIS counsel, seek to understand.  
Please LORD, give us the kindness to hear with compassion, to offer support, loving comfort, and care; give us the courage to do what is needed, the wisdom to choose what is right and most fair; give us the vision to see what is possible; give us the faith that will help pave the way for a present that’s hopeful, a future that’s peaceful — give us the heart to bring joy to each day. 

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.

Often the best defense against the evil inclination (tendency) is a good pair of legs. 

ARROGANT IGNORANCE     
"Strangers have consumed his strength, but he has taken no notice; also, gray mold hair is scattered over him, but he has taken no notice." [Hosea (Hoshea) 7. 9 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 


One of the saddest dramas and heartbreaking tragedies in human experience is the sight of a proud and self-confident leader who does not realize that his once-flaunted powers have deserted him and he now appears simply weak and foolish.  The powerful, strong and impressive Samson, with his hair cut off, was a lamentable and grievous example of such grievous ignorance.  "He did not know that the LORD had departed from him" [Judges/Shofetim 16. 20], so the Philistines were able to put out his eyes and bind him with chains.  The once-mighty people of Israel in the days of their deep apostasy, were in the same ignorant condition.  Hosea versed their distressing dilemma and perplexing confusion well.  "They sow wind, and they shall reap whirlwind — whatever little is produced, strangers devour it." [Hosea (Hoshea) 8. 7 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 


Many years later, GOD'S people, Judah, exhibited an even greater tragic state of egotistical ignorance.  Their MESSIAH had come to them and they did not know HIM, they even crucified HIM.  GOD'S righteous judgment would not be delayed.  "[Your enemies] shall level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation." [Luke 19. 44] 


The church at Laodicea, is a most tragic case, as this church represents all those outwardly prosperous, evangelical churches that attempt to take a neutral position on the basic conflicts of the last days.  The HOLY ONE WHO is "the AMEN, the FAITHFUL & TRUE WITNESS, the BEGINNING of the creation of GOD" [Revelation 3. 14] will pronounce the awful judgment on them.  "So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of MY mouth.  Because you say — I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing. — and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked." [Revelation 3. 16 - 17]   Saints of ALMIGHTY GOD urgently need to guard against the tragedy of arrogant ignorance! 

 
We need to examine ourselves in light of HOLY SCRIPTURES, "Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith.  Test yourselves.  Do you not know yourselves that JESUS CHRIST is in you? — unless indeed you are disqualified." [2 Corinthians 13. 5]   We need to acknowledge our inadequacy, "we have all become like an unclean thing.  And all our virtues like a filthy rag.  We are all withering like leaves, and our iniquities, like a wind, carry us off." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 64. 6 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  Then allow that WORD OF TRUTH to bring us to the LORD MESSIAH Y’SHUA, our ONLY ANSWER, our ONLY HOPE. . . HIS righteousness imputed to us by faith! 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Keep looking up, the best is yet to be!  The person who knows the WORD OF GOD is well armed against the deceptions of the scheming Devil.  When you know the TRUTH — you know THE MASTER. 

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

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
If forgiveness were easy, everyone would be doing it. 

WRITTEN FOR OUR SAKE     
"Oh, that my words were written down; would they were inscribed in a record, incised on a rock forever with iron stylus and lead!" [Job (Iyowb) 19. 23 - 24 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

Job longed to write down his experiences and meditations so others might know and understand.  After the ALMIGHTY ONE restored him, Job wrote of the terrible calamities and sufferings he endured, writing them on tablets of stone with a pen of iron to be permanently recorded.  The significance of Job's story was his certainty that the SUPREME ONE would send a REDEEMER some day. 

There was another incredible writing on a stone, this time it was the great GOD OF ISRAEL:  "When HE finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, HE gave Moses two tablets of the Pact, stone tablets inscribed with the Finger of GOD." [Exodus (Shemot) 31. 18 Tanakh, Torah]   "The LORD gave me two tablets of stone inscribed by the Finger of GOD, with the exact words that the LORD had addressed to you out of the fire on the day of the Assembly.  At the end of those forty days and forty nights, the LORD gave me the Two Tablets of stone, the TABLETS OF THE COVENANT." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 9. 10 - 11 Tanakh, Torah] 

These TABLETS OF STONE written by the hand of the GOD OF ISRAEL containing HIS Laws and statutes which are for "THEY ARE YOUR VERY LIFE." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 32. 46 - 47 Tanakh, Torah]   Thus Moses was to teach them to the peoples [Exodus/Shemot 24. 12] and we should read them for our understanding and learn to fear the LORD GOD.  "If you fail to observe faithfully all the terms of this TEACHING that are written in this BOOK, to reverence this honoured and awesome NAME, the LORD your GOD, the LORD will inflict extraordinary plagues upon you and your offspring, strange and lasting plagues, malignant and chronic diseases." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 28. 58 - 59 Tanakh, Torah]   The contrast, however, is a promise of blessings for those who "obey the LORD your GOD and keep HIS commandments and Laws that are recorded in this BOOK OF THE TEACHING" [Deuteronomy/Devarim 30. 10 - 59] — once you return to the LORD your GOD with all your heart and soul. 

"Let not this BOOK OF THE TEACHINGS cease from your lips, but recite it day and night, so that you may observe faithfully all that is written in it.  Only then will you prosper in your undertakings and only then will you be successful." [Joshua (Yehoshua) 1. 8 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

Clearly, the HOLY SCRIPTURES were "written down for the coming generations, that people yet to be created may praise the LORD." [Psalms (Tehillym) 102. 18 Tanakh, Kethuvim]   "The LORD has heard and noted them (those who fear HIM); and a SCROLL OF REMEMBRANCE has been written at HIS behest (command) concerning those who revere the LORD and esteem HIS NAME." [Malachi (Malakhi) 3. 16 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

"All SCRIPTURE is given by inspiration of GOD, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of GOD may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." [2 Timothy 3. 16 - 17]   We are rich beyond measure inasmuch as these things "are written that you may believe that JESUS is the CHRIST, the SON OF GOD, and that believing you may have life in HIS NAME." [John 20. 31] 

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.  And, may peace abundant descend from heaven with life for us and to all Israel, Amen  
  When one opens their entire life to the enthronement of the LORD MESSIAH Y’SHUA, HE is in control and we have perfect internal confidence in HIM.  But, if we decide to keep part of our life to ourselves, when the going gets tough, we are totally responsible for it.  So it is written to the wise.  Watch and pray, the KING JESUS is coming soon to set up HIS Kingdom.  The descendants of HIS servants shall inherit it, and those who love HIS NAME shall dwell in it.  
  May some of the sweetness of Sabbath be present throughout the week. 

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

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
The Jew carries the burden of an unredeemed world because he cannot concede that redemption is an accomplished fact, unless he accepts that Y’SHUA OF NAZARETH is the MESSIAH. 

THE MEDIATOR     
The prophetess, Devorah (Deborah) and Barak, son of Abinoam sang these praises of Ya’el (Jael), the wife of Heber the Kenite who struck Sisera, crushed his head, smashed and pierced his temple with a tent peg.  Most blessed of women be Ya`el." [Judges (Shofetim) 5. 24 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

Many years after this historical event, Elisheva (Elizabeth) spoke to Miryam (Mary) saying— "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!" [Luke 1. 42]   Clearly, both of these women, Ya’el and Miryam, were explicitly called "blessed among women" for the astonishingly incredible deeds in their life.  They are described as being "blessed" in HOLY SCRIPTURES.  But, neither of them are called "the queen of heaven" nor does it give either of them the position of mediator between the ALMIGHTY LORD GOD OF THE UNIVERSE and mankind.  This position exclusively belongs to MESSIAH Y’SHUA alone. 

Miryam (Mary) went on to say, "My soul does magnify the LORD and my spirit has rejoiced in GOD my SAVIOR." [Luke 1. 46 - 47]   Miryam, just like each of us, imperatively needs a SAVIOR/REDEEMER.  Miryam was the mother of Y’SHUA, the SON OF MAN, not the mother of GOD; thus Y’SHUA is indeed the “GOD/MAN”.  Y’SHUA was and is "GOD THE WORD" before HE became a MAN, being born of Miryam (to come in the flesh) — conceived of the HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD. 

"For there is ONE GOD and ONE MEDIATOR between GOD and men...the MAN, CHRIST JESUS, WHO gave HIMSELF a ransom for all, to be testified in due time." [1 Timothy 2. 5 - 6]   Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH was "made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death; that HE might taste death for everyone…to make the AUTHOR of their salvation PERFECT THROUGH SUFFERINGS." [Hebrews 2. 9 - 10]   "Though HE was a 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. 8 - 9]   Furthermore, LORD Y’SHUA, the RIGHTEOUS ONE, became a MAN so HE could identify with the creation HE made and become their REDEEMER. [see Leviticus/Vayikra 25. 47 - 48] 

"And for this reason HE is the MEDIATOR of the NEW COVENANT, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the FIRST COVENANT, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance." [Hebrews 9. 15] 

Y’SHUA, the HORN OF DAVID, is the only SAVIOR, KINSMAN-REDEEMER, MESSIAH and MEDIATOR.  Miryam, confessed her need for a SAVIOR and trusted this UNIQUE ONE to be "GOD her SAVIOR."  We, likewise, need to look to the ROCK OF ISRAEL, the "MEDIATOR" and "RIGHTEOUS JUDGE" WHO died in our place, and raised victoriously. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
  You have a place and purpose in the Kingdom of Heaven.   Never give up on yourself nor on those around you.   They need your encouragement and ove, especially when times are tough. And, never give up on GOD.  From the beginning, HE has known your name and HE has never, ever given up on you.  Y’SHUA vowed, "surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Amen." [Matthew 28:20b]   Keep looking up, the best is yet to be! 

 

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.

When life gets too hard to stand...Kneel — there is great power in prayer if you are praying to the ONLY TRUE & LIVING GOD of creation! 

FINGER OF GOD    
"It is a sign for all time between ME and the children of Israel.  For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day (Shabbat-Naphash "rest & refresh") HE rested and was refreshed.  When HE finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, HE gave Moses two tablets of the Testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of GOD." [Exodus (Shemot) 31. 17 - 18 Tanakh, Torah] 

"All SCRIPTURE is given by inspiration of GOD, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of GOD may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." [2 Timothy 3. 16 - 17]  This is a true SCRIPTURE except for the fact that the LIVING LORD GOD gave this quote by direct inscription.  Moses testified: "The LORD gave me the two tablets of stone inscribed with the finger of GOD, and on them were the exact words that ELOHIYM had spoken to you on the mountain from the midst of the fire on the day of the Assembly." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 9. 10 Tanakh, Torah]  "HE wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant, the Ten Commandments." [Exodus (Shemot) 34. 28 Tanakh, Torah]  Thus, out of all the HOLY WRITINGS, the ALMIGHTY chose to write this section, not through one of HIS prophets, but with HIS OWN finger.  Therefore, it should be taken literally and most seriously. 

It is also significant that these commandments were structured around a weekly day of rest — remembering GOD’S Creation Week — six days of creation making everything in heaven and earth, followed by sanctified day of rest and refreshment. [see Exodus/Kohelet 20. 8 – 11 & Genesis/Shemot 1. 31 – 2. 3]  Ever since the creation, people have observed a weekly calendar.  The seven-day week, unlike the day, month, and year, has no astronomical basis at all.  People keep time in weeks’ simply because GOD did!  Even those who deny the six-day week of creation must observe it, for their biological rhythms are constructed that way by the MASTER DESIGNER. 

The LORD Y’SHUA stated, "The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.  Therefore the SON OF MAN is also LORD of the Sabbath." [Mark 2. 27 - 28]  Since the MIGHTY CREATOR GOD considered the truth of the literal creation week so important that HE inscribed it HIMSELF, we should definitely believe this portion of HIS WRITTEN WORD first of all, then find what else HE has to say, believe what is so written, then worship and obey HIM. 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
  Magnified and hallowed, praised and glorified, exalted and extolled above all be the NAME of the SUPREME KING of kings, the HOLY ONE, blessed be HE, in the worlds which HE created, the world and the world to come, in accordance with HIS desire and with the desire of them that fear HIM.  YOU LORD GOD are the ROCK EVERLASTING, the LORD of all creatures, the GOD of all souls, WHO dwells in the wide-extended heights, WHO inhabits the heaven of heavens; WHOSE holiness is far above the Throne of Glory.  We wait for YOUR return to Zion that we may see you face-to-face and behold YOUR goodness, YOUR salvation, and YOUR mercy. 

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.

Redeem us, O LORD GOD, from the serfdom (slavery) of ignorance and irreverence. 

SINCE THE BEGINNING    
"When YOU did awesome wonders we dared not hope for, YOU came down, the mountains quaked at YOUR PRESENCE.  Such things had never been heard or noted since the beginning of the world.  No eye has seen them, nor have men heard or perceived them, O GOD, but YOU, WHO act for those who trust and wait for YOU." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 64. 4 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

Paul, drawing from this beautiful OLD COVENANT promise, applied it to believers everywhere of all generations who are guided by the HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD.   "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which GOD has prepared for those who love HIM." [1 Corinthians 2. 9]  We will receive the special rewards especially prepared for us in its proper time. 

We were chosen "in HIM before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before HIM in love." [Ephesians 1. 4]  For Y’SHUA "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. 9]  The ETERNAL ONE, the HOPE OF ISRAEL even had our redemption from sin planned with the precious blood of CHRIST.  The LORD JESUS, GOD'S PRECIOUS BELOVED SON "was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you." [1 Peter 1. 19 - 20] 

Although GOD is infinite and may seem far away, HE is always right by us in everyday life. Such wondrous love is not comprehendible, it is beyond our understanding; but such marvelous things await those who diligently seek GOD, the MIGHTY ONE OF JACOB.  Those who wait for HIM and are found faithful can rejoice, for "your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the MOST HIGH." [Luke 6. 35] 

The LORD Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH and the HEAVENLY FATHER are both worthy of abundantly rich blessings:  "Worthy is the LAMB WHO was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honor and glory and blessing!  Blessing and honor and glory and power be to HIM WHO sits on the Throne, and to the LAMB, forever and ever! Amen" [Revelation 5. 12 - 13]  "Blessing and glory and wisdom, thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our GOD forever and ever. Amen" [Revelation 7. 12]  Worthy is our LORD GOD MOST HIGH, worthy of all praises, let all who have breath praise the HOLY ONE for HE is praiseworthy, Amen! 


Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
  We are called to be heirs of GOD in MESSIAH Y’SHUA.  There is no higher calling in all of creation.  Everything happening in our lives is intended to prepare us for this high calling by working in us the nature of the MASTER DESIGNER.  CHRIST JESUS is the ANSWER to every human problem, and HE is the ANSWER to every problem we're now facing, and those that are about to come upon us.  It is not just that HE has the answers, but HE is the ANSWER.  
  If we are living in the knowledge that the ONE we serve is over all rulers and authorities and dominions, why should we fear?  Every challenge is an opportunity to grow in faith, so a key to the victorious life is to not waste our trials…let them strengthen us as we continue in our “higher calling.” 

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.

In order to rescue the flesh, we must work on the spiritual. 

YOUR NAME & WORD     
"I bow toward YOUR Holy Temple and praise YOUR NAME for YOUR steadfast love and faithfulness, because YOU have exalted YOUR NAME, YOUR WORD above all." [Psalms (Tehillym) 138. 2 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

The WORD OF GOD is not greater than GOD, of course, but is greater than HIS NAME which is immeasurably infinite and magnificent.  The NAME of GOD represents all that HE is and all that HE does and is supremely deserving of the praise of all HIS creatures. 

However, we can only know HIS NAME, what HE is and what HE does through HIS WORD.  The full demonstration or exposition of HIS character of truth and HIS acts of love and mercy can be discerned only through HIS WRITTEN WORD, which becomes greater than HIS NAME, by manifesting and revealing HIS NAME. 

"As many as received HIM, to them HE gave the right to become children of GOD, to those who believe in HIS NAME." [John 1. 12]  We believe on HIS NAME, and thereby receive HIM, by trusting HIS WORD OF TRUTH and appropriating (claiming, seizing, absorbing) HIS forgiving mercy.  We deny HIS NAME by doubting HIS WORD and despising HIS extended free gift of salvation.  "The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, HIS ears attentive their cry.  The face of the LORD is set against evildoers, to erase their names from the earth." [Psalms (Tehillym) 34. 15 - 16 Tanakh, Kethuvim; 1 Peter 3. 12] 

The WORD OF GOD is LIGHT — "YOUR WORD is a lamp to my feet, a LIGHT for my path." [Psalms (Tehillym) 119. 105 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

The WORD OF GOD is TRUTH — "Sanctify them by YOUR TRUTH. YOUR WORD is TRUTH." [John 17. 17 - 18] 

The WORD OF GOD is LIVING & REVITALIZING — "For the WORD OF GOD is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."  [Hebrews 4. 12 - 13] 

The WORD OF GOD is PERFECT, SURE, RIGHT, PURE, CLEAN, TRUE, RIGHTEOUS — "The Law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the LORD is enduring, making the simple wise; the statutes of the LORD are just, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is clear, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the LORD is pure, abiding forever; the judgments of the LORD are true, righteous altogether." [Psalms (Tehillym) 19. 7 - 9 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  

The WORD OF GOD is PROFITABLE — "All SCRIPTURE is given by inspiration of GOD, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of GOD may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work." [2 Timothy 3. 16 - 17] 

May the GREAT GOD OF ISRAEL, the SAVIOR enable us, in full sincerity of heart and mind, to bow down and worship the MASTER OF CREATION and HIS TRUE & HOLY WORD.  And in everything believe and obey HIS promises and HIS commandments. 

There are many who charge CHRISTians with placing too much emphasis on the Written WORD, but it is impossible to place too much importance on SACRED SCRIPTURE, for ALMIGHTY GOD HIMSELF has magnified HIS WORD even above HIS NAME!

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Welcome Sabbath! Come my dear friend...let us go out to meet the Sabbath Queen!  Come, O Bride, the         Sabbath presence is eagerly awaited, and joyously welcomed!  Sabbath of Mishpatim – “Judgments” [Reading: Exodus 21:1 - 24:18; Jeremiah 34:8-22, 33:25-26; Matthew 26:20-30]  
  Hate the evil acts of the wicked, but do not hate the people themselves.  Every person is worthy of being cherished by virtue of being created in the image of the ALL-TOGETHER LOVELY ONE.  Therefore, we cannot hate another person.  Rather, our love for the ALMIGHTY GOD should be so deeply internalized, that from this love we hate evil deeds.  By hating the wicked action alone, you elevate yourself because you are increasing your love for the HOLY CREATOR, by obeying HIS commands. 
  Have a peace-filled Sabbath. 

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. . .
Neither steam nor gas can drive anything until it is confined — likewise, no one ever grows great and useful until they are focused, dedicated and disciplined. 

WRITTEN IN THE EARTH     
"Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to HIM (Y’SHUA) a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, they said to HIM — TEACHER, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act.  Now Moses, in the Law, commanded us that such should be stoned.  But what do YOU say?" [John 8. 3 - 5] 

The setting is the woman taken in adultery and the Scribes and Pharisees bring her to MESSIAH Y’SHUA to test HIM so they might have something of which to accuse HIM.  The LORD Y’SHUA simply stooped down and wrote on the ground with HIS finger, as though HE were ignoring them. [John 8. 1 - 10]  They continued asking the LORD questions and so "HE raised HIMSELF up and said to them — He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.  And again HE stooped down and wrote on the ground." [John 8. 6 - 8] 

There are many guesses as to what the LORD wrote, but according to the Jeremiah text, it was their names , as well as their individual sin —  as a form of judgment and the Law attacked their conscience.  "All who forsake YOU shall be put to shame — Those in the land who turn from YOU shall be doomed, INSCRIBED IN THE EARTH, for they have forsaken the LORD, the FOUNTAIN OF LIVING WATERS." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 17. 13 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

"Then, those who heard, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, BEGINNING WITH THE OLDEST EVEN TO THE LAST.  And JESUS was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst (of the multitude)." [John 8. 9]   The LOVING REDEEMER, then said to her, "Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more." [John 8. 11]  The one whom much is forgiven, is often the one who loves the most. [Luke 7. 47] 

Where is your name written???  The RIGHTEOUS JUDGE of the whole world desires that we put our trust under the shadow of HIS wings.  Whoever chooses HIM will be abundantly satisfied and HE will give them the right to drink from the RIVER OF LIFE. [Psalms/Tehillym 36. 7 - 9]  And, Y’SHUA the KING of all ages, will write their names in the LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE and have a specially prepared place in the New Heavens and the New Earth [Revelation 21. 27] where righteousness dwells.  You should "rejoice because your names are written in heaven." [Luke 10. 20]  How marvelous! How wonderful! 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
May our HEAVENLY FATHER hear our prayers — that our long-awaited MESSIAH Y’SHUA, the SON OF DAVID, KING of kings comes quickly; and may YOUR Holy Temple be rebuilt speedily, even in our day.  Amen & 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. . . 
Doing the impossible just takes a smidgen longer. 

SILENCING THE FOOLISH 
"For this is the will of GOD, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men." [1 Peter 2. 15] 

Egotistical and arrogant foolishness are the humanistic, blasphemous attacking criticisms that are against GOD’S HOLY WORD and HIS people. "Professing to be wise, they became fools." [Romans 1. 22] "HE WHO is enthroned in heaven laughs; the LORD mocks and ridicules them." [Psalms (Tehillym) 2. 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim] Yes, the wicked man schemes against righteousness — but "the LORD laughs at him, for HE knows that his day will come." [Psalms (Tehillym) 37. 13 Tanakh, Kethuvim] Thus, the best way to silence foolish men, is by doing good. 

"When you do good and suffer, if you take it patiently, this is commendable before GOD." [1 Peter 2. 20] "For it is better, if it is the will of GOD, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil." [1 Peter 3. 17] "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] "Shun evil and do good, and you shall abide forever." [Psalms (Tehillym) 37. 27 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

The LORD MESSIAH Y’SHUA is the greatest, most unsurpassed EXAMPLE of this for "when HE was reviled, He did not revile in return; when HE suffered, HE did not threaten, but committed HIMSELF to HIM WHO judges righteously." [1 Peter 2. 23] "HE was oppressed and HE was afflicted, yet HE was submissive, HE did not open HIS mouth; like a sheep being led to slaughter, like a ewe, dumb before those who shear her, HE did not open HIS mouth." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 53. 7 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

Of course, everyone has the right to reject every argument and even ridicule such a life, but they must eventually come to see its sure foundation. "When they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify GOD in the day of visitation." [1 Peter 2. 12] "Do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices GOD is well pleased." [Hebrews 13. 16] 

The LORD Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH bid those who would — "follow ME." Furthermore, it is "the will of GOD" that we identify ourselves with our wonderful LORD by "doing good" as we emulate our HEAVENLY FATHER. And when the GOOD SHEPHERD, the OVERSEER of believers appears, those who know HIM will be glorified. When we are sure of our FOUNDATION, we have little to fear and tough times are nowhere near as tough as without HIM. Such wonderful joy and abounding hope we have! 


Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles! 
O GOD, grant that I may understand my duty to YOU and others. May my life be a sanctification of YOUR HOLY NAME. Let me not be discouraged by the sneers of the cynical, or dismayed by the attacks of the hostile. Grant me the courage to proclaim YOUR MOST PRECIOUS NAME. Strengthen me, O FATHER, when I am weak; help me to hasten the day when all mankind shall be joined in fellowship, and acknowledge YOU as their GOD, LORD, REDEEMER, and FATHER. May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in YOUR sight, O LORD, my ROCK and my STRENGTH. 
Man is given the choice of how he will act out in this world; but the junctions and highways have been set in place by the CREATOR. We have an AWESOME GOD, and HE is on the throne ruling over the affairs of men. If only we could see the path as OMNISCIENT GOD has always seen it, we would have selected it as well. HE is worthy of all our praise and worship, even in difficult times. 

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. . .
How extraordinary — life, real life  is about death.  Life is about being separated from what we want and being connected to what GOD wants. 

GOD’S MINISTERING SPIRITS     
"HE guards the feet of HIS faithful, but the wicked shall perish in darkness — for by strength no man shall prevail." [1 Samuel (Shemuel Alef) 2. 9 Tanakh, Nevi’im]  "For HE shall give HIS angels charge over you wherever you go.  In their hands they will carry you, lest you dash your foot on a stone." [Psalms (Tehillym) 91. 11 – 12 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

The merciful hands of an ULTIMATELY TRIUMPHANT GOD created "an innumerable company of angels" [Hebrews 12. 22], as referred to many times in both the OLD & NEW COVENANTS.  Some have reported seeing heavenly angels, or at least recognized them as such.  We may even "have unwittingly entertained angels" [Hebrews 12. 2], for they can assume the appearance of men on occasion, but normally they are invisible to the human eye. 

Nevertheless, they are there!  Furthermore, they are "ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation." [Hebrews 1. 14]  The MERCIFUL ONE has given them charge over us — that is, over each believer that "dwells in the secret place of the MOST HIGH." [Psalms/Tehillym 91. 1]  They "excel in strength, who do HIS WORD, heeding the VOICE of HIS WORD." [Psalms/Tehillym 103. 20] 

In respect to angelic ministry to believers, the diversity of GOD’S commandments is  extensive. "The ANGEL OF THE LORD camps around those who fear HIM and delivers them...You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample underfoot the young lion and the asps." [Psalms (Tehillym) 34.7 & 91. 13 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

In addition to the physical protection, the angelic ministries help guide and encourage.  And, when the believer dies, angels translate their spirit to the LORD’S PRESENCE.  "The beggar died, and was carried by the angels to Abraham's bosom." [Luke 16. 22]  We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the LORD." [2 Corinthians 5. 8]  We can look forward to meeting and thanking them personally as we come to understand better all their ministries on our behalf during our lifetime.  They are earnestly concerned with our salvation and spiritual progress, "things which angels desire to look into." [1 Peter 1. 12]  Ultimately, "when the SON OF MAN comes in HIS glory HE will bring, and all the holy angels with HIM" [Matthew 25. 31] when HE judges the world in righteousness. 


Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
  CHRISTians also suffer because they are part of a fallen world.  The whole creation is groaning and creaking, longing for the day when everything will be redeemed and made anew.  All kinds of crazy and cruel things are happening and we are not in an airtight capsule in the middle  We are a part of it and we will suffer with it.  Whatever GOD allows, glorify HIM by your steadfast commitment to HIM.  Continue to praise our LORD, the EVERLASTING KING, HELPER, SAVIOR and SHIELD for HIS loving-kindness is mighty over us.  
  Please Note:  Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. 

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

Most regrettable, we live in a world where anything goes — but NOTHING satisfies. How very dark it is without GOD’S amazing light in one’s heart! 

LABOR – GOD’S GIFT      
"There is nothing worthwhile for a man but to eat and drink, and that his soul should enjoy good in his labor.  And even that, I noted, comes from the hand of GOD...it is a gift of GOD." [Ecclesiastes (Kohelet) 2. 24; 3. 13 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

There are many people today who feel that having to work for a living is an imposition, and take advantage of others by living off society.  Since they were brought into this world through no choice of their own, they surmise that the world owes them a living…or so they think.  However, work is not a punishment for sin, it is a blessing from the ALL-KNOWING CREATOR.

Although GOD did "curse" the ground because of sin, it was for man’s own good and in his best interest.  ELOHIYM told Adam, "Cursed is the ground for your sake." [Genesis /Bereshith 3. 17]  It would require "the sweat of your face" [Genesis/Bereshith 3. 19] before man could eat his bread; and even then it would be "in toil (sorrow) you shall eat of it all the days of your life." [Genesis/Bereshith 3. 17] 

Work itself, however, is not a punishment since even before Adam sinned, the LOVING CREATOR had given him the responsibility in the Garden to Eden "to tend and keep it." [Genesis/Bereshith 2. 15]   Furthermore, we will be working in the New Earth in the coming ages as we are told that "HIS servants shall serve HIM" [Revelation 22. 3], however, there will not be any remnant of sin there at all. 

Work, therefore, is a blessing when one sees it as a "gift of GOD."  If we see it only as grinding toil and hardship, then it can indeed be "in sorrow."  Therefore, the LORD Y’SHUA bids us, "Come to ME, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." [Matthew 11. 28] 

"If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat." [2 Thessalonians 3. 10]   Moreover, if working for a living encourages each of us to come to MESSIAH Y’SHUA for salvation and peace of soul, then it truly is "for our sake" that GOD’S curse was pronounced on the ground.  For labor to be a source of pleasure, instead of sorrow, the Apostle Paul states well, "Whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the LORD and not to men, knowing that from the LORD you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the LORD CHRIST." [Colossians 3. 23 – 24] 

May LORD your GOD bless you in all the work of your hand that you do.  Be wise, serve the LORD and fear HIM. 


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 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, so that happiness and contentment may abide in our homes. 

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. . .
Courage does not always roar; sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow.” [Talmud] 

MILK OR MEAT     
"For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line; here a little, there a little. For with stammering lips and another tongue HE will speak to this people (Israel)." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 28. 10 - 11 Tanakh, Nevi’im] 

The setting of this unusual passage is most sobering. Both the people and their priests in Israel’s Northern Kingdom (Ephraim) were in gross rebellion and drunken disobedience to the LORD. They were even ridiculing GOD’S prophets who were trying to call them back, complaining that they were being treated like immature children, saying — Are you presuming to teach us as you would teach weaned infants, line by line, and rule after rule? 

The LORD GOD responded that HE would use people of another tongue to come in and teach them what they refused to learn from HIM.  In other words, the Gentiles will teach the Jews "In the Law it is written — With men of other tongues and other lips I will speak to this people; and yet, for all that, they will not hear ME — says the LORD." [1 Corinthians 14. 21]  The precepts the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL had been trying to teach HIS people would have provided them true rest and refreshment, but now learning these lessons would prove to be their undoing.  What should have been a blessing to them would become their condemnation. 

How very urgent and desperately CHRIST-like-ones today need to heed these same words!  They profess to believe GOD’S HOLY WORD, but they only study it superficially, if at all, then compromise its doctrines and do not obey its instructions.  "For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of GOD; and you have come to need milk and not solid food.  For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe." [Hebrews 5. 12 - 13] 

Most CHRISTians are exactly like the Corinthians, still "carnal...babes in CHRIST." [1 Corinthians 3. 1]  Therefore, it really is necessary for their teachers to bring the WORD OF GOD to them "precept upon precept, line upon line, little by little ."  

May each of us boldly, and in strength of soul, continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST [2 Peter 3. 18], then grow on to perfection in maturity of understanding of the teachings of the MASTER. 


Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!  
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
  Extolled and holy is the precious name of GOD throughout the world which HE has created, and which HE governs according to HIS righteous will.  HE is just in all HIS ways, and wise are all HIS decrees.  May HIS Kingdom come and HIS will be done in all the earth.  Praised be the LORD of life, the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE for evermore.  
Have a blessed and joyous CHRIST-filled day! 

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

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Imagined or pretentious intelligence is a fitting companion for natural idiocy. The wise understand, fools do not. 

NATIONS OF FOOLS      
"For the wrath of GOD is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness." [Romans 1. 18] 

Mankind is without excuse, although they knew the MIGHTY CREATOR, they refused to glorify HIM as GOD SUPREME and are unthankful, futile in their thoughts, obscure in heart, "professing to be wise, they became fools.  Therefore GOD also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of GOD for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the CREATOR, WHO is blessed forever, Amen.  For this reason GOD gave them up to vile passions.  For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.  Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.  And even as they did not like to retain GOD in their knowledge, GOD gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of GOD, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the Righteous Judgment of GOD, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them." [Romans 1. 20 - 32] 

The WONDROUS LORD GOD has such a high view of sex that HE will not permit it to be defiled, as man persists in doing so openly today.  There are specific sexual relationships and practices the RIGHTEOUS HOLY ONE has forbidden. [see Leviticus/Vayikra 18]  Still further, there are those practices the SOVEREIGN KING considers to be abominations (intensely loathsome, detestable, shameful offensive).  "YEHOWAH spoke to Moses saying: Speak to the Israelite people and say to them — I YEHOWAH am your GOD.  Do not lie with a male as one lies with a woman; it is an abomination (also women with women).  Do not have carnal relations with any beast and defile yourself thereby; and let no woman lend herself to a beast to mate with it; it is perversion." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 18. 1 - 2, 22 - 23 Tanakh, Torah]   "If a man lies with a male as one lies with a woman, the two of them have done an abhorrent thing; they shall be put to death — their bloodguilt is upon them (including women with women)." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 20. 13 Tanakh, Torah]  

There is anguish, trouble, sorrow and woe to the nations that legalize and allow wrong sexual practices.  As the ALMIGHTY, FAITHFUL & TRUE ONE declared, "Do not defile yourselves in any of those ways, for it is by such that the nations that I am casting out before you defiled themselves.  Thus the land became defiled; and I called it to account for its iniquity, and the land spewed out its inhabitants.  But you must keep MY laws and MY rules, and you must not do any of those abhorrent things, neither the citizens nor the stranger who resides among you; for all those abhorrent things were done by the people who were in the land before you, and the land became defiled.  So let not the land spew you out for defiling it, as it spewed out the nations that came before you.  All who do any of those abhorrent things — such persons shall be cut off from their people.  You shall keep MY charge not to engage in any of the abhorrent practices that were carried on before you, and you shall not defile yourselves through them:  I YEHOWAH am your GOD." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 20. 24 - 30 Tanakh, Torah]   "THOSE WHO ARE SEXUALLY IMMORAL SHALL HAVE THEIR PART IN THE LAKE THAT BURNS WITH FIRE AND BRIMSTONE, WHICH IS THE SECOND DEATH." [Revelation 21. 8] 

We are commanded to "warn those who are unruly, comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak, be patient with all.  See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all." [1 Thessalonians 5. 14 - 15] 

America (and most, if not all, other countries) are on a collision coarse with the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE for they are abhorrently defiant of GOD'S WRITTEN WORD thus we have defiled the land by doing what the HOLY ONE warned against.  If we do not change our ways, we will certainly face the wrath of SOVEREIGN OMNISCIENT CREATOR as HE brings the "Great Tribulation" on the whole world around us for the unrepentant and stubborn hearts who knowingly have rejected GOD'S LIFE-GIVING WORD regarding sexual practices.  Turn to HIM now before it is too late. . . HE is willing to forgive those who repent! 


Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!  
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Welcome Sabbath — Queen of the week!  Sabbath of Yitro – “Jethro” [Reading: Exodus 18:1 - 20:23; Isaiah 6:1 – 7:6, 9; 5:6-7; Matthew 19:16-26] 
  We thank YOU, GREAT & MIGHTY GOD for by YOUR mercies and grace we were taught the sanctity of the weekly day of rest, Sabbath is the sign of the tie that binds us to YOU.  Keep us ever grateful and grant us YOUR perfect rest. 
  Please, LORD purify our spirits that we may continually be conscious of YOUR presence.  Help us to live so that when we are gathered to our final harvest, many shall rise up and call us blessed.  Continue to bestow YOUR benediction upon us.  Teach us to seek YOU ever more within the sanctuary of our souls, within the tabernacle of YOUR world, and in the congregation of YOUR worshipers, Amen.  
  Enjoy a precious day of rest with your family and friends. 

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. . .
Money cannot buy happiness, but it sure makes misery easier to live with. 

HEAVENLY PEACEMAKER      
"For HE is not a man, as I am, that I may answer HIM, and that we should go to court together. Nor is there any mediator between us, who may lay his hand on us both." [Job (Iyowb) 9. 32 - 33 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

Because of his much sufferings, Job was utterly confused by the silence of the ALMIGHTY, WHOM he had loved and served faithfully all his life.  Job therefore longed to somehow come before the CREATOR and plea his case before the MIGHTY JUDGE.  This was impossible, for GOD is GOD and not a man, as was Job.  Therefore Job knew that he was greatly in need of a GO-BETWEEN WHO could come between himself and EL SHADDAI. 

Now, there is ONE SUPREMELY WONDERFUL PEACEMAKER, "For there is one GOD and one MEDIATOR between GOD and men, the MAN CHRIST JESUS, WHO gave HIMSELF a ransom for all, to be testified in due time." [1 Timothy 2. 5 - 6]  The ransom HE paid was HIS OWN life, allowing HIS blood to be shed which HE used to atone for all our sins when "HE entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption." [Hebrews 9. 11 - 12] 

The LORD Y’SHUA, the PERFECT GOD/MAN, is completely able to bridge the wide gorge between GOD and man.  To better understand the action of a MEDIATOR or ADVOCATE , he is one who is a supporter, backer, sponsor, enthusiast.  When the Devil, "the accuser of our brethren" [Revelation 12. 10] — accuses us of sin before our GOD day and night, as he did to Job, our GREAT INTERCESSOR defends us.  John wrote these encouraging words, "My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an ADVOCATE with the FATHER, JESUS CHRIST the righteous.  And HE HIMSELF is the PROPITIATION (atonement, payment, equalizer) for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the whole world." [1 John 2. 1 - 2]  "Therefore HE is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to GOD through HIM, since HE always lives to make intercession for them." [Hebrews 7. 25] 

Best of all, this salvation is a Free-Gift, ours for the taking.  It is a gift we don’t deserve, we can never earn, and can never pay off.  It is something that GOD freely decided to give to human beings who were lost in sin, at enmity (hostility, opposition, resentment) with HIM.  Out of HIS great compassion the MERCIFUL ONE gives us newness of life.  Won’t you call on the LOVING MASTER today, HE is waiting to hear from you, and so longs to come along side in fellowship and friendship.  There is no other LOVER of our soul so devoted like Y’SHUA, the RISEN SAVIOR. 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!  
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
  Exalted and hallowed be GOD'S greatness in this world of HIS creation.  May YOUR will be fulfilled and YOUR sovereignty revealed in the days of our lifetime and the life of the whole House of Israel.  May YOU be blessed forever, even to all eternity.  May YOU, MOST HOLY ONE, be blessed, praised & honored, extolled & glorified, adored & exalted above all else.  Blessed are YOU beyond all blessings & hymns, praises & consolations that may be uttered in this world.  May peace abundant descend from heaven with life for us and all Israel, Amen. 

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

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
 If you don’t know where you are going, you might end up somewhere else. 

TREE OF LIFE     
"Everyone who is CALLED (the root) by MY NAME, whom I have CREATED (trunk) for MY glory; I have FORMED (branch) him, yes, I have made him." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 43. 7 Tanakh, Nevi'im]   "For thus said the LORD, the CREATOR OF HEAVEN WHO alone is GOD, WHO formed (branch) the earth and MADE (fruit) it, WHO alone established (reproduced) it — HE did not create it a waste, but formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD, and there is none else." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 45. 18 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

In the beginning ELOHIYM created and placed within the Garden of Eden a Tree of Life.  This Tree was literal with roots, trunk, branches, leaves and fruit.  And, it was made available for mans enjoyment of its essence, but only while he remained innocent.  It indicated that ELOHIYM originally intended for man to live forever in perfect fellowship with our loving EL SHADDAI.  

When sin entered the world, however, the Tree of Life ('etz hayyim) was withheld from mankind as ELOHIYM did not desire for man to live in this fallen condition eternally.  Yet, the original intention of the Tree of Life was still desired by YEHOWAH and HE offers us eternal life that is provided in HIS "Plan of Salvation" secured by Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH.  This gift is free and made available to us in HIS COVENANT as recorded in the Law, Prophets, Psalms and Gospel messages. 

In the same sense mankind was given the mission of passing on to others the Plan of Salvation, man entered in to the purpose of the Tree of Life; and that harmony is seen in the works of the ministry: 

The ROOT takes hold when we are called (Hebrew: qura'):  "For you are a holy people to the LORD your GOD; of all the peoples on earth the LORD your GOD chose you to be HIS treasured people." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 7. 6 Tanakh, Torah]  "You are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, HIS OWN special people, that you may proclaim the praises of HIM WHO called you out of darkness into HIS marvelous light." [1 Peter 2. 9] 

The TRUNK establishes the firm foundation and HE WHO created (Hebrew: bara') determined our purpose: "GOD created man in HIS IMAGE, in the IMAGE OF GOD HE created him; male and female HE created them." [Genesis (Bereshith) 1. 27 Tanakh, Torah]   "For we are HIS workmanship, created in CHRIST JESUS for good works, which GOD prepared beforehand that we should walk in them." [Ephesians 2. 10] 

As the BRANCHES form and grow, we are conformed (Hebrew: yatsar) to HIS likeness:  "MY people, MY chosen, this people I have formed for MYSELF; that they might declare MY praise." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 43. 21 Tanakh, Nevi'im]   "Whom HE foreknew, HE also predestined to be conformed to the image of HIS SON." [Romans 8. 29]   "The LORD MESSIAH YESHUA will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to HIS glorious body, according to the working by which HE is able even to subdue all things to HIMSELF." [Philippians 3. 21] 

The FRUITS in our life are to show forth the goodness of CREATOR GOD for HE made (Hebrew: 'asah) us for HIS glory — "I will look with favor upon you, and make you fruitful and multiply you; and I will confirm and maintain MY covenant with you." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 26. 9 Tanakh, Torah]  "And I MYSELF will gather the remnant of MY flock from all the lands...and they shall be fruitful and increase." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 23. 3 Tanakh, Nevi'im] 

"GOD, WHO is rich in mercy, because of HIS great love with which HE loved us... made us alive together with MESSIAH (“by grace you have been saved”), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in CHRIST JESUS, that in the ages to come HE might show the exceeding riches of HIS grace in HIS kindness toward us in CHRIST JESUS." [Ephesians 2. 4 - 7]   "Therefore by HIM let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to GOD, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to HIS NAME." [Hebrews 13. 15] 

In response to our DEVOTED LORD GOD'S great love, we should willingly "reproduce" just as the MASTER DESIGNER formed and created and commissioned us to do — "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the NAME OF THE FATHER and of the SON and of the HOLY SPIRIT — teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen" [Matthew 28. 19 - 20] 

The TREE OF LIFE will again be made available, "to him who overcomes I will give to eat from the Tree of Life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of GOD." [Revelation 2. 7]  And John describes for us what he saw in the Holy City. . . the New Jerusalem which is on the New Earth — "And he showed me a pure river of Water of Life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the Throne of GOD and of the LAMB. In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the Tree of Life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations." [Revelation 22. 1 - 2]  The ALPHA and the OMEGA promises, "I will give of the fountain of the Water of Life freely to him who thirsts." [Revelation 21. 6]   Yes, "There is a river whose streams gladden the City of GOD, the Holy Dwelling-place of the MOST HIGH." [Psalms (Tehillym) 46. 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

Remember as you sow the seed of faith — "the fruit of the righteous is a Tree of Life, and a wise man is the one who wins souls." [Proverbs (Mishle) 11. 30 Tanakh, Kethuvim]   Be found faithful in doing your assigned task, it will be worth it all when we see Y’SHUA, our long-awaited MESSIAH! 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
  Have a Happy Tu b’Shvat!   Starting at sundown tonight, Tu b'Shvat [Tu (15) b' (of) Shvat] — the Jewish Holiday of the Trees is celebrated – it was established for calculating the age of the tree for the purpose of tithing fruit.  Tu b'Shvat is a festival that recalls the praise to the MOST HOLY LORD GOD for the Land of Israel, for on this day the strength of the soil of the land is renewed.   With reference to the fruits of the trees and the produce of the soil, the TORAH praises the Land of Israel:  "For the LORD your GOD is bringing you into a good land, a land of streams and springs and fountains issuing from plain and hill; a land of wheat and barley, of vines, figs, and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and honey; a land where you may eat food without scarcity, where you will lack nothing; a land whose rocks are iron and from whose hills you can mine copper. When you have eaten your fill, give thanks to the LORD your GOD for the good land which HE has given you.  Take care lest you forget the LORD your GOD and fail to keep HIS Commandments, HIS Rules and HIS Laws, which I enjoin upon you today." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 8:7-11 Tanakh, Torah]  
  May you have a heart to know YEHOWAH, that HE is the LORD of your life; oh, return to HIM with your whole heart.  May each of you be delivered from trouble and harm, or strengthened through it.  Heal us O LORD, make us righteous in YOUR sight.  
  Though still in the middle of the bleak embrace of winter, the gentle murmur of the awakening spring begins its hidden work.  In the core and the arterial network of the trees, silently and softly, hidden from the casual view, the new sap flows announcing the coming of spring.  
  At the time of the final redemption, not only will people experience the ultimate blessings and prosperity, but the actual soil of the Land will enjoy these benefits.   The prophet Amos says the Land of Israel will be so prosperous and the crops will grow so bountifully, that the seasons will overlap.  There will be excessive produce, and the mountains will literally drip with the juice of its fruit.  The holy land will be showered with supreme blessing!  The holiday of Tu b'Shevat celebrates the earth and produce of the blessed Holy Land.  The TORAH has compared man to a tree of the field — therefore this day also recalls the DIVINE judgment upon man. 

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

Delrifkah: HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. - Page 6 Empty Re: Delrifkah: HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY.

Post  Admin on Sun 20 Jan 2019, 10:15 pm

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
Humility is being prepared to serve. Pride is not being willing to serve anyone — totally immersing oneself in themselves, wrapped in the ostentatious (pretentious, brazen, showy) garment of self-indulgence. 

BLESSED HOPE 
"Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with GOD through our LORD Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of GOD. And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope." [Romans 5. 1 - 4] 

Hope is a much needed ingredient for living in this world. In Hebrew there are several types of hope: "yachal" mean to trust, wait, tarry or stay — "betach" is confident expectation, safe, secure, sure — "tiqvah" translates a longing — "miqveh" means confidence, abiding (also a bath or pond of water). Saints of GOD MOST HIGH have the confident assurance of the hope of a glorious inheritance awaiting them. "Therefore my heart rejoices, my whole being exults; and my flesh rests in secure hope." [Psalms (Tehillym) 16. 9 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

Good works only produce a false hope when one thinks they will earn the rich reward of a Heavenly Home. Although GOD’S Law is perfect, it cannot make a person righteous, for no one is able of keeping the Law. There is hope however, and that hope is faith and trust in the LORD Y’SHUA, HE is the believer’s HOPE OF SALVATION; for MESSIAH in you is the HOPE of glory. [Colossians 1. 27] 

This HOPE that is in you is our SOLID FOUNDATION WHO gives us the needed confidence to trust expectantly. "The LORD Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH HIMSELF, and our GOD and FATHER, WHO has loved us and given us everlasting consolation and good hope by grace." [2 Thessalonians 2. 16] "For the Law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a BETTER HOPE, through which we draw near to GOD." [Hebrews 7. 19] 

We are also given a blessed hope, by GOD‘S grace, bringing us to salvation teaching us that by "denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our GREAT GOD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST, 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] 

Furthermore, we receive the LIVING HOPE in which we can greatly rejoice, "Blessed be the GOD and FATHER of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, WHO according to HIS abundant mercy 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, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of GOD through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time." [1 Peter 1. 3 - 5] 

"Thus GOD, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of HIS counsel, confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for GOD to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us. This hope we have as an ANCHOR of the soul, both sure and steadfast." [Hebrews 6. 17 - 19] 

"Blessed is he who trusts in the LORD, and whose HOPE is the LORD alone." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 17. 7 Tanakh, Nevi’im] Our WONDERFUL SAVIOR not only gives us a better hope, a good hope, a blessed hope, and a living hope, but also our hope centered on the eternal future with the KING OF GLORY. 


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, may the HOLY ONE bless and fill you with HIS Holy Commandments and call us to occupy ourselves with the LIFE-GIVING WORDS of TORAH. And, may your ever-growing faith grant you the privilege to witness and experience the marvelous miracle of being delivered from the yoke of slavery to sin. We encourage you to take some of Sabbath’s sweetness with you each coming day. 
"Tov Shavua — Have a good week — a week of peace...may gladness reign and joy increase!" Let not your heart be troubled, glorify the LORD MESSIAH Y’SHUA, the KING of the Universe and allow HIS SPIRIT to comfort and transform your life. 

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

Delrifkah: HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. - Page 6 Empty Re: Delrifkah: HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY.

Post  Admin on Sat 19 Jan 2019, 11:48 pm

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Gentleness (Hebrew: ‘anvah) never closes a door nor finds one it cannot open. 

WRITINGS OF GOD     
"The tablets were ELOHIYM’S work, and the writing was ELOHIYM’S writing, incised upon the tablets." [Exodus (Shemot) 32. 16 Tanakh, Torah] 

This is the first time the word writing was used in HOLY WRIT and it is speaking of "the writing of GOD" not something devised by men.  The reference is to the two TABLETS OF THE LAW which are known as the Ten Statements,  Ten Words, or Ten Commandments "written with the Finger of GOD" [Exodus/Shemot 31. 18], and rewritten by GOD on a second set of stone tablets to replace the first that were shattered by Moses. [Exodus/Shemot 34. 1] 

The Ten Statements revealed by the HOLY ONE to Moses at Mount Sinai and given to the Hebrews are indeed commandments; and they are part of 613 commandments in the TORAH (FIVE BOOKS OF MOSES) — in fact, each of the 613 commandments fits into one of ten categories of commandments represented by the Ten Statements.  The Law means more than prohibitions — it includes obligations as well.  Of the 613, there are 365 negative commands and 248 positive commands.  As with all other aspects of the Law, the intention in which the act is carried out is also critical. 

All SCRIPTURE is DIVINELY inspired, but the Ten Commandments were DIVINELY inscribed!  This TESTIMONY of their unique importance is a serious sobering condemnation of all who ignore them or distort their meaning, including the fourth statement with reference to the Six Days of Creation. [Exodus/Shemot 20. 11] 

The NEW COVENANT also records a WRITING  of the Apostle Paul which is of even greater personal significance:  "You are manifestly an epistle of CHRIST...written not with ink, but with the SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart." [2 Corinthians 3. 3]  This engraving by the Finger of GOD is an inner confidence inscribed in the heart by the SPIRIT OF GOD!  "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD — I will put MY Laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them." [Hebrews 10. 16] 

This extraordinarily amazing WRITING OF GOD’S Law in our hearts and minds has been accomplished because the LORD MESSIAH Y’SHUA came "not to destroy, but to fulfill" the Law [Matthew 5. 17], and "has redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us." [Galatians 3. 13]  Now, with the Law in our hearts, we have become epistles (dispatched letters) of the MOST HIGH GOD, "known and read by all men." [2 Corinthians 3. 2] 

The Law written in our hearts will finally be permanently etched there during the Kingdom Age when YEHOWAH will make the Law honorable to all and righteousness will be the identifying factor bringing perfect peace and tranquility. [Isaiah/Yeshayah 42. 21]   It is imperative that the WRITING reads true and clear through our lives in every word and daily action. 


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 Beshalach – “When He Sent” [Reading: Exodus 13:17 -17:16; Judges 4:4 – 5:31; Matthew 14:22-33] 
  We thank YOU, GREAT & MIGHTY GOD for by YOUR mercies and grace we were taught the sanctity of the weekly day of rest, Sabbath is the sign of the tie that binds us to YOU.  Keep us ever grateful and grant us YOUR perfect rest. Amen  
  Shabbos calls us to bring the highest moral values to our daily labor and to culminate the workweek with kedushah (holiness), menuchah (rest), and oneg (joy). May GOD, WHOSE grace is irresistible and all sufficient, be glorified. 

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

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing in the right place, but also to leave unsaid the wrong at a tempting moment. 

DELIBERATE SIN     
"For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries." [Hebrews 10. 26 - 27] 

This is one of the most controversial passages of HOLY SCRIPTURE because of its apparent conflict with passages which teach salvation by grace, entirely apart from the Law or any form of works [Ephesians 2. 8-9; Titus 3. 5] and absolute security in salvation to those who belong to the LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH. [John 10. 28 - 29; Romans 8. 35 - 39]  Y’SHUA commanded: "Teach them to observe all that I have commanded you." [Matthew 28. 20] 

All unintentional sins in the OLD COVENANT have a covering, but no intentional sin is covered. [Leviticus/Vayikra 4 - 5]   And, in the NEW COVENANT, there are many passages that warn against deliberate acts of sin. "Whoever says — I know HIM — and does not keep HIS commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him." [1 John 2. 4]   "To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled.  They profess to know GOD, but in works they deny HIM, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work." [Titus 1. 15 - 16]   "Whoever has been born of GOD does not sin, for HIS seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of GOD.  In this the children of GOD and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not PRACTICE RIGHTEOUSNESS is not of GOD; nor is he who does not love his brother." [1 John 3. 9 - 10] 

There are many "impervious (solid, pure, reliable, trustworthy) texts" on both sides of this question, and since there are no real contradictions in GOD'S HOLY WRITTEN WORD, the LORD must have had a good reason for inspiring this apparent paradox in HIS BOOK.  The misunderstanding is on our part, not on the HOLY SCRIPTURES.  On the one hand, it is vital for every true believer in the LORD Y’SHUA, the ONLY-BEGOTTEN OF THE FATHER to know that they are saved and have eternal life.  "And this is the testimony — that GOD has given us eternal life, and this life is in HIS SON.  He who has the SON has life; he who does not have the SON OF GOD does not have life.  These things I have written to you who believe in the NAME OF THE SON OF GOD, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the NAME OF THE SON OF GOD." [1 John 5. 11 - 13] 

Nonetheless, it is lethally dangerous for a person merely to think he or she is saved when there is no "evidence" of a changed life.   "Let grace be shown to the wicked scoundrel, yet he learns not righteousness, though spared." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 26. 10 Tanakh, Nevi'im]   Such SCRIPTURES give sober warning that professing CHRISTians have no basis for any assurance of salvation if they do not obey HIS COMMANDS.   "Now by this we know that we know HIM, IF we keep HIS commandments." [1 John 2. 3]   The LORD Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH stated, "IF you love ME, keep MY commandments." [John 14. 15]   MESSIAH Y’SHUA also said, "IF anyone loves ME, he will keep MY WORD." [John 14. 23]   This is not a command but, it is supportive evidence of our love for HIM. 

Therefore, "Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith.  Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that JESUS CHRIST is in you? — unless indeed you are disqualified." [2 Corinthians 13. 5]  "For IF these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our LORD JESUS CHRIST.  For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.  Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for IF you do these things you will never stumble." [2 Peter 1. 8 - 10]   "For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. For every tree is known by its own fruit." [Luke 6. 43 - 44] 

What kind of fruit is your life producing, manifesting and initiating? 

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 the ALMIGHTY ONE, WHO separates the holy from the secular, forgive our sins!  
  In YOUR mercy, O LORD, remember us and all YOUR children as we enter a new week.  O FATHER & REDEEMER, 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.  
  Have a full and richly blessed week!  May the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL bless you abundantly. 

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. . .
You are not born a winner nor a looser, but you are born a chooser. Choose this day WHOM you will serve, that is the determining factor. 

LIFE IS TERMINAL      
"Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.  For you died, and your life is hidden with CHRIST in GOD.  When MESSIAH, WHO is our life appears, then you also will appear with HIM in glory." [Colossians 3. 2 - 4] 

Looking forward to the time when we shall "always be with the LORD" [1 Thessalonians 4. 17], the Apostle Paul wrote — "For I am hard-pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with CHRIST, which is far better.  Nevertheless to remain in the flesh is more needful for you." [Philippians 1. 23 - 24] 

The fact, however, is that we can be "with CHRIST" even while still abiding in the flesh, as Paul emphasized.  This is the great principle called positional truth.  Positionally, we are already with Y’SHUA, for that is where GOD sees us and how HE relates to us.  HE has "raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in CHRIST JESUS, that in the ages to come HE might show the exceeding riches of HIS grace." [Ephesians 2. 6 - 7] 

Life is terminal, to live is ultimately to die.  Many people have never figured this out, praising their bodies with exercise — dressing well — but never preparing for real life which is a spiritual future and without a spiritual future — life really makes no sense.  Though some say that an after-life does not make any sense, the fact is that without an on-going life, this life does not make sense!  If you remove GOD and the fear of HIM, what do you have?  You not only have stress, but you are totally ignorant of just how valued you are...for you were created in the image of GOD. [Genesis/Bereshith 1. 27] 

People say there are many ways to GOD, in an ironic way, they are right. . . but the destination the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE makes is determined by HIM; for we shall all stand before the AWESOME GOD OF HEAVEN and give an account for our life and HE will either say "Well done good and faithful servant" [Matthew 25. 21] or "Depart from ME, you cursed, into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels." [Matthew 25. 41]  YESHUA also addresses the unworthy — "Not everyone who says to ME, 'LORD, LORD' shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of MY FATHER in Heaven.  Many will say to ME in that Day, 'LORD, LORD — have we not prophesied in YOUR NAME, cast out demons in YOUR NAME, and done many wonders in YOUR NAME?'  And then I will declare to them, I never knew you; depart from ME, you who practice lawlessness!" [Matthew 7. 21 - 23] 

There is only one SAVIOR, the LORD Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH…the LORD JESUS CHRIST! And, GOD’S laws and physics are exact. . . 2 + 2 = 4 every time.  If some try to make it equal what they want, they will certainly not pass any exam.  So you see, GOD’S physical laws are clear, why not HIS spiritual laws? 

GOD WHO created the world, loves us, gives us what is best for us, has a covenant with us which obligates us to fulfill HIS commandments, deals with us with both justice and mercy.  We are finite; GOD is infinite.  We do not presume to know the whole picture.  We do know based upon our understanding of both the OLD & NEW TESTAMENT and history that GOD has a plan for history and a track record of fulfilling HIS promises — be they for reward or punishment.  We understand that the ALMIGHTY ONE acts in this world with purpose, meaning and good. 

Prayer gives us hope.  Prayer is a means of integrating into ourselves that life has meaning and that we are not alone.  Prayer focuses us on what we want out of life and helps us clarify what is good for us. 

Before we can be raised up with MESSIAH, however, we first must die with HIM.  "I have been crucified with CHRIST; it is no longer I who live, but CHRIST lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the SON OF GOD, who loved me and gave HIMSELF for me." [Galatians 2. 20]  The ETERNAL ONE saw us as buried with MESSIAH when HE was buried, and this is the great truth symbolized in our baptism, "We were buried with HIM through baptism into death, that just as CHRIST was raised from the dead by the glory of the FATHER, even so we also should walk in newness of life." [Romans 6. 4] 

"Now if we died with CHRIST, we believe that we shall also live with HIM, knowing that HE, having been raised from the dead, dies no more.  Death no longer has dominion over HIM." [Romans 6. 8 - 9]   Y’SHUA died for us so our deserved death became HIS substitutionary death, and HIS victorious resurrection becomes our own unmerited deliverance from death in eternal resurrection life.  This is our position now, and our assured everlasting possession then, for we are with the BELOVED MESSIAH, WHO dies no more. 

This is the wonderful doctrine (doctrine means: what you believe and hold to be true), but as we see in HOLY SCRIPTURE, it is the focus for our thoughts, and the most valid incentive for GODly living. 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
  Hear, O Israel: The LORD our GOD, the LORD is ONE.  Praised be HIS NAME WHOSE glorious Kingdom is forever and ever.  Eternal truth it is that HE alone is GOD, and there is none else.  YOUR love has watched over us in the night of oppression; YOUR mercy has sustained us in the hour of trial.  May YOUR Law rule the life of all YOUR children and YOUR truth unite our hearts in fellowship.  Praise to YOU, O LORD, our BLESSED REDEEMER, 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.

HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
"Enough" is as good as a feast!  Happy and blessed is the man content with little. 

UNTIL I COME     
"So he (a certain nobleman) called his ten servants and delivered to them ten minas, and said unto them — Do business (occupy) till I come." [Luke 19. 13] 

With this parable, the LORD MESSIAH Y’SHUA was trying to teach HIS disciples that they should stay busy using whatever abilities and opportunities they had in the LORD'S service until HE returned.  This practical illustration is also suggested where Paul forewarned Timothy, "No one engaged in warfare entangles himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who enlisted him as a soldier." [2 Timothy 2. 4]   Paul is cautioning those who would be "good soldiers of MESSIAH" against becoming involved in the "affairs of the world" if they are really wanting to be pleasing to their COMMANDING OFFICER. 

The LORD JESUS CHRIST says to stay busy with the practical affairs of life until HE returns; then Paul affirms not to get involved with such things.  This is no real contradiction if the motivation is considered.  Whatever may be our vocation in life, as led by the MOST HOLY ONE, we are to perform joyously and all the other daily responsibilities of life diligently and faithfully for HIS sake. 

However, if we allow these things to become an end in themselves or use them for any other purposes than for HIS glory — we are then becoming tangled up in the affairs of this life, which will vanish.  The LORD OF GLORY, blessed be HE , encourages us to "hold fast what you have till I come.  And he who overcomes, and keeps MY works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations." [Revelation 2. 25 - 26]  The LORD Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH desires that we be diligent in whatever HE has called us to do until HE comes; for when HE comes, we will be judged on our faithfulness. 


"Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the LORD comes, WHO will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts.  Then each one's praise will come from GOD." [1 Corinthians 4. 5]   The SON OF MAN took up HIS cross intelligently, voluntarily, deliberately and joyfully because HE knew it was the FATHER’S will.  Taking up our cross is to accept the will of GOD in the same manner as MESSIAH did, fully knowing that it will involve some degree of pain and discomfort as it did for our MASTER.  However, it will be worth it all, the trials of this life will soon be forgotten and perfection will be to the faithful! 


Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
If we spend our time judging others, we make no room for simply loving them.  Remember how surprisingly wondrous is our HEAVENLY FATHER'S patience with us and learn from HIM and do likewise. 

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

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
We are all responsible for each other, to think otherwise is a case of mistaken identity. 

THE LAW     
"You shall keep MY Laws and MY judgments, by the pursuit of which man shall live; I am the LORD." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 18. 5 Tanakh, Torah] 

The ALMIGHTY ETERNAL ONE is absolutely holy, a fact heavily emphasized throughout the book of Leviticus.  It is the standard for all those created in HIS IMAGE, and is reemphasized in the NEW COVENANT, "Clearly no one is justified before GOD by the Law, because, the righteous will live by FAITH.  The Law is not based on faith, on the contrary, the man who does these things will live by them." [Galatians 3. 11 - 12] 

The LOVING MASTER redeemed us in order so the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Y’SHUA ha'MASHIACH, in order that we might receive the promise of the SPRIT OF GOD by faith.   It is not enough that a man keep most of GOD'S Laws, "For whosoever shall keep the whole Law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all." [James 2. 10]  "For as many as are of the works of the Law are under the curse; for it is written — Cursed is everyone that continues not in all things which are written in the BOOK OF THE LAW, to do them." [Galatians 3. 10] 

"The Law is holy and the commandments holy and just and good." [Romans 7. 12]  However, no human being has ever been able to keep GOD'S Perfect Law, except THE MAN, the LORD JESUS.  "Before YOU, O LORD, no creature lives in righteousness." [Psalms (Tehillym) 143. 2 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  All are under ALMIGHTY GOD'S righteous condemnation.  "Therefore by the deeds of the Law no flesh will be justified in HIS sight, for by the Law is the knowledge of sin." [Romans 3. 20]  The Law makes us aware of our sin which, in turn, shows our desperate need of a SAVIOR.  "Therefore the Law was our tutor to bring us to MESSIAH that we might be justified by faith." [Galatians 3. 24] 

The widespread delusion that a person can be saved by good works is a very dangerous deception!  Many and dreadfully broad are on the roads to Hell and the Eternal Lake of Fire and they are egotistically arrogant in their supposed goodness. 

The MIGHTY CREATOR HIMSELF had to become a MAN and keep the Law, which MESSIAH Y’SHUA did, to fulfill the Law to be our ADVOCATE before GOD THE FATHER.  Then when HE died, the LORD JESUS "redeemed us from the curse of the Law, being made a curse for us." [Galatians 3. 13]  "Now the righteousness of GOD apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of GOD through faith in MESSIAH Y’SHUA, to all and on all who believe." [Romans 3. 21 - 22]  The RIGHTEOUS LORD Y’SHUA, MESSIAH is our PROPITIATION by HIS atoning blood, through faith, that HE might be "JUST" and the "JUSTIFIER" for those who believe in HIM and follow HIM with their whole being.   And, CHRIST'S righteousness will be accredited to them making us joint-heirs of the Kingdom with the LORD Y’SHUA, our BELOVED REDEEMER. 


Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Consider your latter end; fear GOD, the HOLY CREATOR, take heed to HIS counsel, seek understanding.

As we bow in adoration before the KING OF GLORY, 
...may ALMIGHTY GOD’S love and peace shine out of each of us
 ...bright enough for all to see
  ...clear enough for all to follow. 

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. . .
With memories of yesterday and hope for tomorrow, let us live today with eternity in sight. 

IT'S YOUR CHOICE     
"Truly, times of ignorance GOD overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because HE has appointed a day on which HE will judge the world in righteousness by the MAN whom HE has ordained.  HE has given assurance of this to all by raising HIM (MESSIAH Y’SHUA) from the dead." [Acts 17. 30 - 31] 

The WORD OF GOD describes an appointment that is fixed for each individual.  It could be a "day of dread" or a "day of blessing" for you, what makes it thus is all your choice.  "By the sweat of your brow shall you get bread to eat, until you return to the ground  — for from it you were taken.  For dust you are, and to dust you shall return." [Genesis (Bereshith) 3. 19 Tanakh, Torah]  "YOU will bring me to death, the house appointed for all the living." [Job (Iyowb) 30. 23 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  "As it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment." [Hebrews 9. 27]   Death is a thought that most people put far away from their minds, often preparing more for the day-to-day living, retirement or even a vacation then for the sure fact of their imminent passing.   Death is the surest fact of life and no human contrivance can avoid the appointment with the Angel of Death. 


HOLY SCRIPTURES, however, caution that the believer will face challenges in this life, "No one should be shaken by these afflictions; for you yourselves know that we are appointed to this." [1 Thessalonians 3. 3]  Death's appointment should hold no fear for the faithful followers of MESSIAH for we are HIS chosen vessels and parting this life is for our glory and we are assured of that — "For GOD did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our LORD JESUS CHRIST, WHO died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with HIM." [1 Thessalonians 5. 9 - 10] 

The LOVING ALMIGHTY ONE is our "HOPE, our REFUGE in the day of doom and calamity." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 17. 17 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  Nevertheless, the day of our death still holds a moment of precise truth.  Have we lived our lives unto ourselves, or in a way pleasing to the LORD our GOD?  To be ready for our appointment, we must "choose this day WHOM we will serve." [Joshua/Yehoshua 24. 15]   Then continually "abide in HIM; that, when HE shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before HIM at HIS coming." [1 John 2. 28]   For our heart will not condemn us, having confidence toward our RIGHTEOUS & HOLY GOD. [1 John 3. 21]   Ever knowing that "Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the Day of Judgment; because as HE is, so are we in this world." [1 John 4. 17]   May you be a willing vessel of GOD’S light and love to a lost and dying world. 


Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
  Birkat HaKohenim – lifting of the hands (uplifted hands is the channel through which DIVINE blessings flow).  
Eternal is YOUR power O 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, heal the sick, bring freedom to the captives and keep faith with YOUR children in death as in life.  Who is like YOU, ALMIGHTY GOD, AUTHOR of Life & Death, SOURCE of salvation?  Praised are YOU alone, O LORD, WHO has implanted within us immortal life.  Praised are YOU, our REDEEMER, the HOLY ONE of Israel and the joy of the whole earth. 

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. . .
Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off the goal (GOD). 

SHADOW OF DEATH     
"May darkness and the deep gloom of the shadow of death reclaim it; may a dark cloud lie over it; may what blackens the day terrify it." [Job (Iyowb) 3. 5 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

This wretched ruinous curse was uttered by Job after he sat for months in appalling misery, then conclusively, he cursed the day he was born.  This bewildered patriarch had long been living in the grim "shadow of death" — but could not die. 

The SUPREME MASTER CREATOR HIMSELF said, "Have the gates of death (Hebrew: shaarey mavet) been disclosed to you? Have you seen the gates of the shadow of death  (Hebrew: shaarey tsalmaveth) or deep darkness?" [Job (Iyowb) 38. 17 Tanakh, Kethuvim]   These are eloquent and rhetorically speculative questions, for no one in Job's day had ever returned from death. 

Who knows what lies beyond those hideous, grim doors of death?  MESSIAH Y’SHUA does!   HE told us, "I am HE that lives and was dead; and behold!  I AM ALIVE FOREVER MORE. AMEN!  And, I have the keys of hell and of death." [Revelation 1. 18]   When the LORD JESUS, the EVERLASTING KING conquered death, HE destroyed its sting (not its sorrow).  We can therefore say, along with David, "Though I walk through a Valley of the Shadow of death and deepest darkness, I fear no harm, for YOU are with me; YOUR rod and YOUR staff — they comfort me." [Psalms (Tehillym) 23. 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

This same confident assurance is available to the "whosoever will" seek the LORD OF GLORY; the confidence "that turns the shadow of death and deep darkness into the morning dawn (of hope)." [Amos (Amus) 5. 8 Tanakh, Nevi'im]   Then, we can thank the ETERNAL, TRUE & LOVING GOD that "the DAYSPRING from on high has visited us; to give light to those who sit in deep darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace." [Luke 1. 78 - 79]   Having a personal relationship with our wonderful LORD GOD fulfills all our hopes and longings...and we have perfect peace that flows like a gentle river. 

 
Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
  Exalted and hallowed be GOD'S greatness in this world of YOUR creation.  May YOUR will be fulfilled and YOUR sovereignty revealed in the days of our lifetime and the life of the whole House of Israel speedily and in our time.  May YOU be blessed forever, even to all eternity. 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. . .
He who bears no cross deserves no crown. 
 
NO EXCUSE      
When men stand before the RIGHTEOUS GOD OF HEAVEN for judgment there is nothing they can say to accuse the MOST HOLY ONE of injustice for their punishment.  Our INFINITE LOVING MASTER has done everything conceivable to bring us to repentance.  Certainly HIS wonders and works are far above our imaginations: 

No one will be able to say — "But GOD, if YOU had walked with us in a perfect environment and told us your will we would have believed and obeyed." 

 Because HE did and they didn't.  The MASTER CREATOR placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and told them not to eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil, with the warning that they would die the day they disobeyed.  But they ate of it anyway. 

No one will be able to say — "But GOD, if YOU had withdrawn from our midst and allowed us to do our own thing but been willing to walk with us as we sought to walk with YOU, and speak to us by those who chose to be near YOU, we would have naturally wanted to do good. We would have obeyed YOU and we would have done good because that is our nature." 

 Because HE did and they didn't.  From the time the ETERNAL ONE drove Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden, HE allowed people to do as they pleased.  The GRACIOUS PROVIDER walked with them as they desired to walk with HIM.  Enoch walked with GOD and GOD took him home.  The rest became so evil that the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE had to send a great flood to cleans the earth of all mankind except Noah and his sons and their wives. 

No one will be able to say — "But GOD, if YOU had made a great example of YOUR great displeasure with evil, then allowed us to do our own thing, we would have walked with YOU in obedience out of fear since it is our nature to do good and not evil."

 Because the EVERLASTING KING did and they didn't.  GOD drove Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden after they ate of the forbidden fruit.  Then, because of the great wickedness of mankind upon the earth, GOD sent the Great Flood to express HIS great displeasure with evil.  Again men failed to follow the SOVEREIGN LORD and went their own way to disobey.  They built the Tower of Babel in their pursuits of idolatry.  They continued in their evil pursuits growing worse and worse. 

  Eventually the HOLY & RIGHTEOUS ONE had to divide them up by confusing their languages. They scattered over the face of the earth and continued to get worse until HE was forced to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah because of the cry that came up to Heaven from the wickedness of mankind. 

  Even the Canaanites were not destroyed until Israel was brought out of Egypt, because the wickedness of the Amorites was not yet full.  Then the LORD GOD instructed Israel to destroy the inhabitants of that land.  They continued to grow worse, even though Abraham had lived in their midst as "a prophet of GOD" — and they had been instructed in the way of truth. 

No one will be able to say — "But GOD if YOU had chosen a peculiar people and used them as an example to us by blessing them when they did right and punishing them when they did wrong, we would have watched and learned from their experience and we would have acknowledged and obeyed YOU." 

 Because HE did and they would not.  ALMIGHTY GOD called Abraham and his descendants to be a "light to the Gentiles" -- and blessed them when they followed HIM faithfully, and punished them when they refused to follow HIM.  Still the nations looking on did not acknowledge the GREAT GOD OF HEAVEN to obey HIS ways.  Instead, they persuaded Israel to disobey and then took advantage of them when the LOVING RULER punished them. 

No one will be able to say — "But GOD, if YOU had come to earth as a man and demonstrated how you wanted us to obey YOUR Laws we would have seen and believed."

 Because HE did and they didn't.  GOD came down in the PERSON of Y’SHUA (JESUS) and demonstrated perfectly what HE wanted HIS people to do.  They nailed HIM to the cross and killed the SAVIOR, the MESSIAH, the WORD made flesh. 

No one will be able to say — "But GOD, if YOU had set a people out of every nation, kindred and tongue as lights in the world to show YOUR Will for mankind, we would have listened to them because they would be part of us and speak our language and understand our problems.” 

 Because HE did and they did not.  The EVERLASTING ONE established the Church as the "light of the world" and as the "salt of the earth."  Yet they martyred the Saints and tried to stamp out any evidence of THE WAY to which the Church pointed.  They chose to say that all was the result of accidental process of evolution; and in choosing to believe the lie, they refuse to acknowledge that the GOD OF TRUTH created everything and will some day call every person to give account for the choices they have made. 

No one will be able to say — "But GOD, if YOU had expressed YOUR wrath in such a way that no one could fail to know it was from YOU, we would have realized the extreme terribleness of our ways and we would have repented and come to YOU in humility to learn and obey." 

 Because the LORD GOD will have done it and they continue to refuse.  The LORD OF GLORY will send the plagues of the Great Tribulation and destroy the earth, and men will curse and blaspheme HIM because of their pains, but they will refuse to repent of their wickedness. 

No one will be able to say — "But GOD, if you had taken direct control and set up YOUR OWN government and reigned on the earth personally to guide us where we would not be allowed to do wrong.  And, if YOU had removed temptation from us we would have obeyed cheerfully and followed YOU eagerly, we would have been glad to be YOUR people and accept YOU as our GOD." 

 Because HE will have done it all and they still will not.  The LORD Y’SHUA will reign a Thousand Years of Perfect Government, Satan will be bound and unable to influence men at all.  There will be universal peace even extending to the animal kingdom.  Then when the Thousand Years are over, Satan will be released to influence whoever he can.  He will gather an army of rebels so great that no one will be able to number them. 

MESSIAH Y’SHUA, the ANOINTED ONE, has paid the price for your sin and HE asks only that you accept that GREAT SACRIFICE and come to HIM in repentance to find mercy.  What else can the MOST HOLY AWESOME GOD do to show HIS faithful justice, holiness, mercy, righteousness, grace, and love?  GOD ALMIGHTY, has done enough for anyone wise enough to want to know. 

There is no excuse for anyone who rejects what the TRUE & LIVING GOD has revealed and offered.  Judgment is coming!  Be wise, seek the truth today before it is too late.  Now is the acceptable time, today is the day of salvation! 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Shalom U'Vrakah — Peace & Blessings! . . . to all who love Zion!  The LORD GOD be with you this day and always!  
Delight your days and precious moments with our WONDERFUL LORD GOD. 

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.
