Tehillim / Psalm 122:6 

Pray for shalom in Yerushalayim; may those who love you prosper.

שַׁאֲלוּ, שְׁלוֹם יְרוּשָׁלִָם;    יִשְׁלָיוּ, אֹהֲבָיִךְ.

 

The song “Jerusalem” from the first album of Uzia Zadok ‘Shomer Israel’

Words: From the sources and Sharon Abilach
Music: Sharon Abilhak
Adaptation and musical production: Doron Elimelech

Words:

May peace be in your army, peace in your palaces,
Deep in your heart, your memory is engraved and the tears are flowing by themselves,
For the sake of my brother and my companion I shall speak peace to you,
We will always be with you, together forever.

Today our feet stand at your gates, Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
We have not stopped hoping, we want you, Jerusalem, Jerusalem.

Jerusalem raised mountains around her and the Lord around his people,
Wherever we go, we will continue to read on your behalf, and in the streets of the city to walk.

This Shabbat

Stay united with Yeshua

shabbt shalom.JPG

As we cry towards the Wall, our tears are prayers too

However, remember the rejected rock that has become the Cornerstone

Yeshua ha Mashiach, is this Cornerstone!

When you’ve found Yeshua, stay united with Him

Don’t turn away!

Remember Yeshua’s words:  “If you keep my commands, you will stay in my love — just as I have kept my Father’s commands and stay in his love.”

Remain united with Yeshua, the King of Israel!

and

One day we will welcome Yeshua’s return by shouting Baruch Haba B’shem ADONAI / בָּרוּךְ הַבָּא, בְּשֵׁם יְהוָה / Blessed is he who comes in the name of ADONAI

שבת שלום לכולם /  Shabbat Shalom to everyone☺

Anger

Shabbat Shalom, friends!

We never get angry, right? Yes? No? Well, that is for you to answer.  I reckon that we do get angry, at times, as it’s a challenging and difficult life in this world. It is not sunshine, roses, smiley faces and social media likes all the time; and life will get more challenging due to the actions of others who do not follow Torah (ADONAI’s instructions). Bible prophesy also confirms this (see for example 2 Timothy 3).

As we seek guidance from the Word of God, we find various verses on this topic throughout the Bible, however I was drawn to the message from Tehillim / Psalm 4 and 37 and Mishlei / Proverbs 16:32. (You could read these below.)

King David and later, his son Shlomo (Solomon), recorded these words thousands of years ago and when I read these verses, it is almost like a 4 step process to reduce anger:

Step 1: calm down.

Step 2: don’t be upset by evildoers.

Step 3: stop being angry; and.

Step 4: put your trust in ADONAI.

 If you apply these steps, you will be better than a war hero!

I hope you and your family have a peaceful Shabbat!  The Aaronic Blessing for you and your family:

✡Yeshua haMashiach is the King of Israel ✡ the Bright Morning Star✡

 

Tehillim 4 

1 For the leader. With stringed instruments. A psalm of David: O God, my vindicator! Answer me when I call! When I was distressed, you set me free; now have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.

2 Men of rank, how long will you shame my honor, love what is vain, chase after lies? (Selah)

3 Understand that ADONAI sets apart the godly person for himself; ADONAI will hear when I call to him.

4 You can be angry, but do not sin! Think about this as you lie in bed, and calm down. (Selah)

5 Offer sacrifices rightly, and put your trust in ADONAI.

6 Many ask, “Who can show us some good?” ADONAI, lift the light of your face over us!

7 You have filled my heart with more joy than all their grain and new wine.

8 I will lie down and sleep in peace; for, ADONAI, you alone make me live securely.

 

 

Tehillim 37 1- 8 

1 By David: Don’t be upset by evildoers or envious of those who do wrong,

2 for soon they will wither like grass and fade like the green in the fields.

3 Trust in ADONAI, and do good; settle in the land, and feed on faithfulness.

4 Then you will delight yourself in ADONAI, and he will give you your heart’s desire.

5 Commit your way to ADONAI; trust in him, and he will act.

6 He will make your vindication shine forth like light, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.

7 Be still before ADONAI; wait patiently till he comes. Don’t be upset by those whose way succeeds because of their wicked plans.  

8 Stop being angry, put aside rage, and don’t be upset – it leads to evil.  

9 For evildoers will be cut off, but those hoping in ADONAI will inherit the land.

10 Soon the wicked will be no more; you will look for his place, and he won’t be there.

 Mishlei 16:32: 

32 He who controls his temper is better than a war hero, he who rules his spirit better than he who captures a city.

Sukkot – Celebrating Living Waters

 

sukkot.JPG

A celebration of a most joyous holy occasion!

Day one to day eight of a holy tabernacle of togetherness with our God, ADONAI

A seven day sukkah of holy tribute to events of old

Fruits, palm fronds, thick branches and river-willows decoratively covering hardship of (sinful) slavery in remembrance of freedom

A flowing freedom from the rivers of living waters

Flowing from the spring of Salvation (haYeshu’ah / הַיְשׁוּעָֽה)

Flowing from your inmost being as we trust in our priestly King of Israel!

Yeshua haMashiach

 

Don’t abandon this source of Living Water! [Selah]

 

As on the future day of victory when fresh water will flow out of Jerusalem,

our priestly King of Israel, will the King of the whole world

On this day, His Name will be the only Name!

Yeshua haMashiach

The name that means salvation

Salvation for everyone

All glory to Yeshua, our priestly King of Israel!

 

For in future times, no rain will fall, no river will overflow

If we (Jew and Gentile Nations) abandon the festival of Sukkot

If we forget this holy tabernacle of togetherness with our God

This river of the water of life, sparkling like crystal,

Flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb

 

Don’t abandon this source of Living Water! [Selah]

 

All glory to our Almighty Living God of Israel

Our God! The God of our salvation

The God of my strength, my song, my shelter and my fortress!

We are Your people!

You’ve opened the gates of righteousness for me, for all of us

Our God! The God of our salvation

Our Yeshu’ah!

 

Don’t abandon this source of Living Water! [Selah]

Please, ADONAI! Save us! Please, ADONAI! Rescue us!

In the name of Yeshua

Amen

Science vs Biblical Truth: Flat Earth or Circle?

Apparently, there is a growing movement of people who believe that the earth is flat. Yes, this isn’t fake news and you can access the article here. In another article, the history behind the possible discovery that the earth is a sphere is given and that Pythagoras (Greek philosopher & mathematician) “provides the earliest arguments for why the Earth is round” in 500 BC.

What does the Word of God say? Well, ADONAI, the Almighty Living God of Israel, revealed to the Prophet Isaiah, between 742 and 689 BC that the earth is a sphere. In Isaiah 40:22 :

22 He who sits above the circle of the earth – for whom its inhabitants appear like grasshoppers – stretches out the heavens like a curtain, spreads them out like a tent to live in.

Biblical truth is beautiful, pure and correct!

This Shabbat

Let Yeshua calm the storm in your life

Shabbat Shalom, my Jewish and Gentile Friends!

I’d like to say thank you for following my blog and the likes. It’s all very much appreciated! 😊

For this Shabbat, we read in Matthew / Mattityahu  8: 23-27; (with the same account in Mark 4: 35-41 and Luke 8 22-25 ) that

[Yeshua]  boarded the boat, and his talmidim followed. 24 Then, without warning, a furious storm arose on the lake, so that waves were sweeping over the boat. But yeshua was sleeping. 25 So they came and roused him, saying, “Sir! Help! We’re about to die!” 26 He said to them, “Why are you afraid? So little trust you have!” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and there was a dead calm. 27 The men were astounded. They asked, “What kind of man is this, that even the winds and sea obey him?”

I’m sure you’ve read this account many times before. Have you noticed that Yeshua was sleeping, the people thought that they were about to be killed and then Yeshua responded? Also, have you read this in conjunction with the verses below?

If we read Dani’el 7: 21 -22:

 I watched, and that horn made war with the holy ones and was winning, 22 until the Ancient One came, judgment was given in favor of the holy ones of the Most High, and the time came for the holy ones to take over the kingdom.

The same with Zechariah 14: 1- 5, the nations will fight against Yerushalayim ( or Israel) and it will appear that these enemy armies will be winning and then ADONAI will strike back.

Look, a day is coming for Adonai

when your plunder, [Yerushalayim], will be divided

right there within you.

2 “For I will gather all the nations

against Yerushalayim for war.

The city will be taken,

the houses will be rifled,

the women will be raped,

and half the city will go into exile;

but the rest of the people

will not be cut off from the city.”

3 Then Adonai will go out

and fight against those nations,

fighting as on a day of battle.

4 On that day his feet will stand

on the Mount of Olives,

which lies to the east of Yerushalayim;

and the Mount of Olives will be split in half

from east to west, to make a huge valley.

Half of the mountain will move toward the north,

and half of it toward the south.

5 You will flee to the valley in the mountains,

for the valley in the mountains will reach to Atzel.

You will flee, just as you fled before the earthquake

in the days of ‘Uziyah king of Y’hudah.

Then Adonai my God will come

to you with all the holy ones.

Also in the Book of Revelation where there will be suffering of the believers, (the Great Persecution / Tribulation),  but then ADONAI’s will be victorious in the end. Let’s read Revelation 13 1- 10:

“ and I saw a beast come up out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads. On its horns were ten royal crowns and on its heads blasphemous names. 2 The beast which I saw was like a leopard, but with feet like those of a bear and a mouth like the mouth of a lion. To it the dragon gave its power, its throne and great authority. 3 One of the heads of the beast appeared to have received a fatal wound, but its fatal wound was healed, and the whole earth followed after the beast in amazement. 4 They worshipped the dragon, because he had given his authority to the beast; and they worshipped the beast, saying,

“Who is like the beast?

Who can fight against it?”

5 It was given a mouth speaking arrogant blasphemies; and it was given authority to act for forty-two months. 6 So it opened its mouth in blasphemies against God to insult his name and his Sh’khinah, and those living in heaven; 7 it was allowed to make war on God’s holy people and to defeat them; and it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. 8 Everyone living on earth will worship it except those whose names are written in the Book of Life belonging to the Lamb slaughtered before the world was founded. 9 Those who have ears, let them hear!

10 “If anyone is meant for captivity,

into captivity he goes!

If anyone is to be killed with the sword,

with the sword he is to be killed!”[a]

This is when God’s holy people must persevere and trust!

If we look at the above-mentioned verses from the Prophets and the Brit Chadasha (New Testament), there is a definite pattern here: there is an attack or war on believers and it looks like the adversary (ha satan) will win, but then ADONAI acts.

These verses also refer to an attack (or a war) on the the believers as a collective group, but sometimes, a much smaller version of this attack or war from the adversary happens in our lives.   If you are experiencing something in your life now, remember Yeshua’s words in Matthew / Mattityahu 8 verse 26 “[Yeshua] said to them, “Why are you afraid? So little trust you have!”. We should hold on to this truth that has been revealed to us by Yeshua, The King of Israel. The same applies to the coming “storm”, if you know what I mean.  Keep awake and trust in Yeshua!

Remember the formula: praise + pray + prophesy = walking with ELOHIM (ADONAI, Yeshua & Ruach ha Kodesh / Holy Spirit).

I hope you have a peaceful Shabbat and good week!

Biblical New Year

Tonight, the biblical new year starts. In Exodus 12 1 & 2, ADONAI spoke to Moshe and Aharon in the land of Egypt; he said,  “You are to begin your calendar with this month; it will be the first month of the year for you.” This is also the start of the countdown to Pesach (Passover) which is on the 14th day of Nisan. It is a month of celebration, freedom and salvation as the children of Israel gained freedom from slavery in Egypt thousands of years ago and we were also set free from sin through the blood of Yeshua Mashiach.

The countdown is on…

 

The Word of God says

The Word of God is…

One of the names of God (Revelation 19:13)

Lasts forever and the Good News proclaimed to us (1 Peter 1:25, Isaiah 40:8)

Is alive and active (Hebrews 4:12)

Is a lamp for my foot and a light (Psalm 119:105)

Is part of the armor of God (a Sword) (Ephesians 6:17)

 

I thank you Almighty Living God of Israel, in the name of Yeshua for your Word!

Amen.

Be merciful unto me – חנני

 

Be merciful unto me

( Based on Psalm 57 )

Be merciful unto me O God,
be merciful unto me, for my soul trusts in you.
And in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge,
till the calamities pass by.

I will cry out to God most high,
to God who rewards me,
He will send his help from heaven and save me.

Your grace is great to the heavens,
and Your truth is lifted to the clouds.
I will give thanks to You, Oh Lord,
among peoples, I will sing to you among the nations.
