The Word of God says

Have no fear; I will help you

Shabbat Shalom!

 “But you, Isra’el, my servant; Ya’akov, whom I have chosen, descendants of Avraham my friend, 9 I have taken you from the ends of the earth, summoned you from its most distant parts and said to you, ‘You are my servant’ – I have chosen you, not rejected you. 10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you; don’t be distressed, for I am your God. I give you strength, I give you help, I support you with my victorious right hand. 11 All those who were angry with you will be disgraced, put to shame; those who fought against you will be destroyed, brought to nothing. 12 You will seek them but not find them, those who contended with you; yes, those who made war with you will be brought to nothing, nothing at all. 13 For I, ADONAI, your God, say to you, as I hold your right hand, ‘Have no fear; I will help you. 14 Have no fear, Ya’akov, you worm, you men of Isra’el!’ I will help you,” says ADONAI; “Your redeemer is the Holy One of Isra’el. 

Isaiah 41: 8-14 CJB

The Word of God says

“It won’t come near you”

You who live in the shelter of ‘Elyon,
who spend your nights in the shadow of Shaddai,
who say to Adonai, “My refuge! My fortress!
My God, in whom I trust!” —
he will rescue you from the trap of the hunter
and from the plague of calamities;
he will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his truth is a shield and protection.

You will not fear the terrors of night
or the arrow that flies by day,
or the plague that roams in the dark,
or the scourge that wreaks havoc at noon.
A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand;
but it won’t come near you.
Only keep your eyes open,
and you will see how the wicked are punished.

Psalm 91:1-8 CJB

The Word of God says

Who may go up to the mountain of Adonai?

Capital of Israel
A powerful message about not forgetting that we are standing on holy ground!

Psalm 24 (0) By David. A psalm:

(1) The earth is Adonai’s, with all that is in it,
the world and those who live there;
for he set its foundations on the seas
and established it on the rivers.

Who may go up to the mountain of Adonai?
Who can stand in his holy place?
Those with clean hands and pure hearts,
who don’t make vanities the purpose of their lives
or swear oaths just to deceive.

They will receive a blessing from Adonai
and justice from God, who saves them.
Such is the character of those who seek him,
of Ya‘akov, who seeks your face. (Selah)

Lift up your heads, you gates!
Lift them up, everlasting doors,
so that the glorious king can enter!
Who is he, this glorious king?
Adonai, strong and mighty,
Adonai, mighty in battle.

Lift up your heads, you gates!
Lift them up, everlasting doors,
so that the glorious king can enter!
10 Who is he, this glorious king?
Adonai-Tzva’ot —
he is the glorious king. (Selah)

Daniel requested and pleaded 

IMG_20180630_174602_295.jpg 

I haven’t written a blog post for a couple of months. Since the middle of last year, I started working for another company which takes up most of my time. What else has been happening? I developed an interest in flower photography (or let me rephrase this: I walk around with my mobile phone and take pictures of flowers) and I thought it was too soon, but my beard has decided to go grey in certain spots. This happened almost overnight [and that might be too much personal information]:-)

I’m currently reading from the Book of Daniel and I find Daniel a fascinating character. He was of Jewish nobility, lived in a foreign land but held a high ranking government position in this country’s government, he had the ability to interpret dreams, vision and messianic revelations, he was saved from a certain death and he was “much loved” [Daniel 9: 23].  Even with all these amazing blessings and that he was “much loved”, there are 2 verses [Daniel 6: 10 & 11] that just captures my attention. He didn’t take this for granted. He gave thanks to Adonai, made requests and pleaded (and sometimes even with sackcloth and ashes). It is mentioned that he prayed 3 times a day.  When I read these verses, this reminds me of what Yeshua said in Matthew 7: 7 & 8: 

7 “Keep asking, and it will be given to you; keep seeking, and you will find; keep knocking, and the door will be opened to you.  

8 For everyone who keeps asking receives; he who keeps seeking finds; and to him who keeps knocking, the door will be opened”

And in everything gives thanks to Adonai,  for He is good, for His grace continues forever -[Psalm 107:1 1 Thessalonians 5:18] 

Keep the communication going – that is pray and continue to do so! When everything in your life is going well, during the challenging times, when you need guidance on decisions you have to make….pray anytime and about anything. 

I’m also reading the Book of Daniel because of the prophecy about the abomination that causes desolation that was revealed to Daniel. You could read more about this in Daniel 11:29-32 & Daniel 12:11.  Yeshua also makes reference to this in Matthew 24. There are some that speculate for this to happen, there needs to be a “third temple” building or similar structure.  There has been talk for a couple of years now that a particular Member of the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) is seriously advocating to build a third temple. Some of the orthodox rabbis also regard the war in Syria as prophetic, as the current events taking place in the Middle East could lead to the abomination that causes desolation [ You could read more about this for example 2 Thessalonians 2]. There are all kinds of rumors and opinions that the Anti Messiah will be someone representing Iran, or a European Muslim convert or even an Israeli military leader. I’m not an expert on this, it’s just some food for thought and you can’t (and shouldn’t) believe everything you hear. With all these rumours,  just remember Yeshua‘s words in Matthew 24: 

23 “At that time, if someone says to you, `Look! Here’s the Messiah!’ or, `There he is!’ don’t believe him.  

24 For there will appear false Messiahs and false prophets performing great miracles — amazing things! — so as to fool even the chosen, if pos sible.  

25 There! I have told you in advance!  

26 So if people say to you, `Listen! He’s out in the desert!’ don’t go; or, `Look! He’s hidden away in a secret room!’ don’t believe it. 

27 For when the Son of Man does come, it will be like lightning that flashes out of the east and fills the sky to the western horizon.  

Let’s continue to hold on to Yeshua’s words by reading the Bible. 

I’ve included some of my photos in the post. 

Have a good week!

The Word of God says

King of Kings / Melech malchei Hamelachim / מלך מלכי המלכים

 

 

Shalom Friends,

I hope you are having a good week so far!

In Revelation 19:11-16 we read about this vision given to Yochanan (John):

11 Next I saw heaven opened, and there before me was a white horse. Sitting on it was the one called Faithful and True, and it is in righteousness that he passes judgment and goes to battle. 
12 His eyes were like a fiery flame, and on his head were many royal crowns. And he had a name written which no one knew but himself. 
13 He was wearing a robe that had been soaked in blood, and the name by which he is called is, “THE WORD OF GOD.” 
14 The armies of heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. 
15 And out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down nations – “He will rule them with a staff of iron.”c It is he who treads the winepress from which flows the wine of the furious rage of ADONAI, God of heaven’s armies. 
16 And on his robe and on his thigh he has a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

 

What a spectacular vision that was given to Yochanan.

Although Yochanan recorded this vision in words, words can’t truly describe this glorious sight of the King of Kings. When we read this, just picture it in your own mind: Yeshua, the King of Kings in action with the Armies of Heaven!

The vision also shows the various names of Yeshua: Faithful and True, a name written which no one knew but himself ( thus, a special name reserved only for the King of Kings), THE WORD OF GOD; and the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. By reading this, we get better insight into who Yeshua really is. We are learning His names, His purpose, features and characteristics.

In John 14:7 Yeshua also told us that if we know Him, we also know the Father and we’ve seen Him.  We don’t get a better view of Yeshua than this vision in Revelation 19:11-16.

As we get to know Him more by reading the Word of God together, we should remember to always give thanks for His grace continues forever (Psalm 136:3; 1 Thessalonians 5:18).

We should give thanks not only for our life, the good but also the bad, the tears, the laughter and the hard times.

Now, let’s listen to the song Melech malchei Hamelachim  /  מלך מלכי המלכים / King of all Kings

As a final thought, I’d wanted to re-blog these blog posts that are definitively worthwhile reading:

https://crosseseverywhere.com/2017/10/10/the-words-of-men-or-the-word-of-god/

All glory to Yeshua, the King of Kings!

Halleluyah!

 

Words to the song:

סלח לי אבי כי חטאתי לך

Slach li avi ki khatati lekha

Forgive me Father for I have sinned against you

מחול לי על כל פשעי

Machol li al kol peshai You have forgiven me of my guilt

גם בימים ששכחתי אותך

Gam b’yamim shshkachti otcha

Also in the days that I forgot you

היית תמיד בחיי

Hayita tamid bechayay

You were always in my life

בכל הדרכים שהלכתי בעצם

Bechol haderachim shehalakti beetsem

In each and every path I took

היית לי נר לרגליי

Hayita li ner leraglai

You were a light to my feet

הייתי עיוור לא ראיתי מעבר

Hayiti iver lo rayiti meever

I was blind and I could not see beyond

למה שהביטו עיניי

Lemah shehibitu aynai

What my eyes beheld

מלך מלכי המלכים תודה על חיים

Melech malchei Hamelachim todah al hayim

King of all Kings thank-you for life

על אושר על בכי על צחוק

Al osher al bechi al tschok

For happiness for tears and for laughter

גם שקשה לפעמים גם אז אלוקים

Gam kshekashe lilamim gam az elokim

Also when it’s hard at times even then Lord

אתה לעולם לא רחוק

Ata leolam lo rachok

You are never far away

Psalm 118: 5, 21, 17, 22, 28

Min hameitzar karati Yah
Anani vamerchav Yah

Odecha ki anitani
Vatehi li liy’shu’a

Lo amut ki echye
Va’asaper ma’asei Yah

מילים: תהילים קי”ח 5, 21, 17, 22, 28

‎מִן-הַמֵּצַר, קָרָאתִי יָּהּ;    עָנָנִי בַמֶּרְחָב יָהּ.
‎אוֹדְךָ, כִּי עֲנִיתָנִי;    וַתְּהִי-לִי, לִישׁוּעָה.
‎לֹא-אָמוּת כִּי-אֶחְיֶה;    וַאֲסַפֵּר, מַעֲשֵׂי יָהּ.
‎אֶבֶן, מָאֲסוּ הַבּוֹנִים–    הָיְתָה, לְרֹאשׁ פִּנָּה.
‎אֵלִי אַתָּה וְאוֹדֶךָּ;    אֱלֹהַי, אֲרוֹמְמֶךָּ

The Word of God says

Exodus 15-6: “Your right hand, ADONAI, is sublimely powerful;”

Let’s praise ADONAI, our SALVATION!

Exodus 15: “Then Moshe and the people of Isra’el sang this song to Adonai:

“I will sing to Adonai, for he is highly exalted:
the horse and its rider he threw in the sea.

Yah is my strength and my song,
and he has become my salvation.
This is my God: I will glorify him;
my father’s God: I will exalt him.
Adonai is a warrior;
Adonai is his name.

 

 

Pharaoh’s chariots and his army
he hurled into the sea.
His elite commanders
were drowned in the Sea of Suf.
The deep waters covered them;
they sank to the depths like a stone.

Your right hand, Adonai, is sublimely powerful;
your right hand, Adonai, shatters the foe.
By your great majesty you bring down your enemies;
you send out your wrath to consume them like stubble.”

 

Praise ADONAI! Your Right Hand is Powerful! Praise Yeshua, our King, our Salvation!

HALLELUYAH! HALLELUYAH!

Our King is returning soon!

121 תְּהִלִּים /Tehillim / Psalm / Псалтирь 121

(0) A song of ascents:

(1) If I raise my eyes to the hills,
from where will my help come?
My help comes from Adonai,
the maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip —
your guardian is not asleep.
No, the guardian of Isra’el
never slumbers or sleeps.

Adonai is your guardian; at your right hand
Adonai provides you with shade —
the sun can’t strike you during the day
or even the moon at night.

Adonai will guard you against all harm;
he will guard your life.
Adonai will guard your coming and going
from now on and forever.
