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

Appointed Times

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

This Shabbat

Yeshua told him: “Away with you, Satan!”

Shabbat Shalom, friends!

In Mattiyahu / Matthew 4:1 to 10 (CJB), we read how Yeshua refered to the Torah (D’varim / Deuteronomy 6 and 8) and the K’tuvim (Writings) (Tehillim / Psalm 91) to defeat temptation from satan in the wilderness. When I read Matthew 4, two aspects stand out. Firstly, Yeshua fasted for forty days and nights. He must have been really hungry and quite weak. It is in these moments of perceived weakness that the power of ADONAI is brought to perfection (2 Corinthians 12:9). Sha’ul also summed this up by saying: “I am well pleased with weaknesses…for it when I am weak that I am strong” (2 Corinthians 12:10).

Secondly, satan knows the Word of God (The Bible) or at least some of the passages. I wonder if he knows the conclusion(?): he will try to make war with the “holy ones” (Dani’el 7), however the Messiah will return to defeat him! HALLELUYAH!

If you feel attacked by the adversary; if you feel weak; it’s not a pleasant experience, but remember the following:  “See, the Word of God is alive! It is at work and is sharper than any double-edged sword” (Messianic Jews / Hebrews 4-12) and “[n]o temptation has seized you beyond what people normally experience, and God can be trusted not to allow you to be tempted beyond what you can bear” ( 1 Corinthians 10:13).

Thus, hazak, hazak, v’nit’chazek! (be strong, be strong, and let us be strengthened!) and follow Yeshua’s example by chasing the adversary away!

Have a good and peaceful Shabbat!

 

The Word of God says · This Shabbat

Tehillim / Psalm 91

This Shabbat I’m reading Tehillim / Psalm 91.

Shabbat Shalom, friends!

As we are walking with Adonai i.e having a relationship with the Almighty Living God of Israel, we have also found shelter; a dwelling place in Adonai. This dwelling place offers protection as well as a place to speak to Adonai, in the name of Yeshua through prayer. Even-though, we are living in an ever-increasing dark world, we don’t have to fear for no disaster will happen to us and Adonai will answer us when we speak to Him.

Furthermore, Adonai says in Verse 16, He will show us His salvation. The Hebrew word for “salvation” in Verse 16 is בִּישׁוּעָתִי -B’Yeshuati. Adonai keeps His promises and we receive salvation through Yeshua   (ישׁוּעָ) who is the Mashiach and King of Israel.

There have been rocket attacks on Israel from the Sinai Desert in recent weeks. Please pray for the protection of Israelis and people affected by conflict.

 

Tehillim 91 (Complete Jewish Bible version)

1 You who live in the shelter of ‘Elyon, who spend your nights in the shadow of Shaddai,

2 who say to ADONAI, “My refuge! My fortress! My God, in whom I trust!”

3 he will rescue you from the trap of the hunter and from the plague of calamities;

4 he will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his truth is a shield and protection.

5 You will not fear the terrors of night or the arrow that flies by day,

6 or the plague that roams in the dark, or the scourge that wreaks havoc at noon.

7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand; but it won’t come near you.

8 Only keep your eyes open, and you will see how the wicked are punished.

9 For you have made ADONAI, the Most High, who is my refuge, your dwelling-place.

10 No disaster will happen to you, no calamity will come near your tent;

11 for he will order his angels to care for you and guard you wherever you go.

12They will carry you in their hands, so that you won’t trip on a stone.

13 You will tread down lions and snakes, young lions and serpents you will trample underfoot.

14 “Because he loves me, I will rescue him; because he knows my name, I will protect him.

15 He will call on me, and I will answer him. I will be with him when he is in trouble. I will extricate him and bring him honor.

16 I will satisfy him with long life and show him my salvation.”
