Chag Purim Sameach

One could say that the current political climate in many parts of the world, resembles the time Hadassah (Ester) lived in: Peoples (from various “factions”, who would otherwise despise each other, uniting) to destroy Israel and believers. However, Purim is a good reminder that God is in control. It’s a time of faith, a time of recognising that God is at work behind the scene protecting us and it’s a time of celebration!

Or one could say: “they tried to kill us, they failed because God delivered us…let’s eat”- type of day.

May the light of Yeshua Mashiach be revealed to all Israel and all nations.

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.

Here I am!

What would you say, if you hear Adonai’s voice speaking to you? Would you say “Hello?”, “Excuse me, say that again?”, “Sorry, I’m busy, send me an email!” or would you even respond? In the Bible, Abraham, Jacob, Moses, Samuel and Isaiah, all said the same statement when the God of Israel spoke to them “Here I am” ( הִנֵּֽנִי hineni in Hebrew).  This basically means I’m here to listen and to do what You’re saying, Lord.

In the modern world and life, it might seem a bit strange, even outlandish to immediately respond with a statement such as I’m ready to listen and do, however this statement “Hineni” showed their unshakeable faith. We need to have this type of faith. Truth and Faith in God’s word are a reality and Adonai will keep his promises. Trust is what gets you through the difficult times.

May the God of Israel through his Messiah, Yeshua bless you, keep you save and give you shalom!

Appointed Times

Sukkot

Sukkot is a divine appointment of pure joy. Traditionally, one of the joyous observances during Sukkot is the Simchat Beit Hashoeivah (The celebration of water-drawing). Even the Talmud states that he who has not seen the water-drawing celebration has not seen joy in life. We, as believers in the Messiah (Yeshua), are blessed to experience this celebration on an ongoing basis as we trust in the Messiah and received the Ruach ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit):

37 “Now on the last day of the festival, Hoshana Rabbah, Yeshua stood and cried out, “If anyone is thirsty, let him keep coming to me and drinking!

38 Whoever puts his trust in me, as the Scripture says, rivers of living water will flow from his inmost being!”

39 (Now he said this about the Spirit, whom those who trusted in him were to receive later — the Spirit had not yet been given, because Yeshua had not yet been glorified.)”

Yochanan (John) 7: 37

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.
