Enemies of Israel. One.

October 12, 2017

Iran, Syria and the Palestinians!

This is the everyday reality of living in the modern State of Israel, that the immediate threat is from the Palestinians in Judah-Samaria and the Gaza strip! After that comes the Hezbollah in south-Lebanon and its support from both Iran and Syria!

These are what one could say are the traditional enemies, who agonisingly provoke the IDF (Israeli Defence Forces) daily. From stone throwing youths, to rockets fired from the Gaza strip and missiles from Southern-Lebanon.

People get killed going about their everyday business, work, school and worship, while the Palestinians come up with astronomical numbers of dead and injured and they play to the western media for propaganda with menace to the Journalists?

The need for Atonement. Two.

September 28, 2017

Forgiveness of Sins?

The Complete Tanakh tells us very clearly that we are all sinners, since the fall in the Garden of Eden humanity has inherited incurable failure!

But Elohim has always provided a way for people to confess and repent of their bad doings, from the first sacrifice offered by Abel, through to the various alters and offerings made by the Patriarch’s until Moshe was shown the Tabernacle or mobile temple!

Today political intrigue and strife continue in Jerusalem and Israel as to the Dome of the Rock and when will the new Temple be restored? But Elohim has already offered both  Ha ‘Yehud’im and Ha ‘Goy’im the way to be atoned for finally, in that He has given Ha ‘Olam His one and only Son Yeshua!

Hebrews 9:22-28,   Exodus 30:10,   Yochanan 3:14-17,   31-36.

Yom Kippure and Rosh Hashanah?

”Happy New Year?”

What is more important in this life, is to acknowledge the creator, Elohim who delivered us from Egypt through Moshe! We are all sinners and we need to seek Elohim for repentance, so that we can be forgiven our wrong!

In the past an elaborate system was devised by Elohim and through Moshe it was implemented, from the mobile Tabernacle in the Sinai wilderness to the Temple devised by King Dav’id and built by his son Shlomo!

But two-thousand years ago Prophecy was fulfilled in relation to Yesha ‘Yahu 53:1-12, when Elohim gave Israel first their Messiah Yeshua Adonai and the Goyim their Saviour Jesus Christ! Yeshua came into our time by the work of Ha ‘Ruach Ha ‘Kodesh!

He thirty-three years later died on the stake/cross/tree to make the one final atonement for sins and rose on the third day with the promises that all who trusted in His Good works by faith would be saved!

Exodus 29:36,  Leviticus 23:26-27,  Yesha ‘Yahu 22:14,  Yochanan 6:23,  Romans 3:25, Colossians 1:20,  Hebrews 9:12,  25,  Revelation 1:5.

Bad Advice?

It depends who one chooses to be around us in leadership will mark out the direction that we go in? Politicians for policy and home issues or generals for bad foreign policy and war?  Psalm 68:30.

Some leaders are dropped in the pool and left to get on with the situation left by failed leadership, this is how King David came to power! But he was the man of Elohim and he would not be-little Saul, even for his disobedience and failure!

2 Shamu’EL 1:23,   2 Shamu’EL 2:4-7,   22:1.

Today many leaders are coming to power on the popular ideal, with their nit bitty talking and lies to win that popular vote, but like building a house on the sands, the floods and the tides will wash it away!   Matthew 7:26.

Royal families to Government!

Leaders of anything armies, royalty, government have to be tough and thick skinned? We see this in the Kingship of the shepherd boy David and his predecessor the handsome Saul, who was both mad and unstable! Alef Shamu’EL 1:18.

Every leader in the Complete Tanakh from Moshe had around them appointed officials, we term them Prophets, recorders or Chroniclers and Priests. Each one had a role of advice to play in the outworking of that leadership, and we see this coming into real play when Jethro advised Moshe to spread out the responsibility!

Exodus 18:14-27,  2 Chronicles 29:25,  Jeremiah 26:5-16.

Even Yeshua had His twelve core Talmid’im, while He sent out the seventy across Y’srael. No leadership can be a one person show, there has to be a administration and also challenges to that leadership as the Prophet Nat’an was sent back by Elohim to point out King David’s sin with a married woman!

Matthew/Levi 20:17,  Luke 10:1-17,  2 Shamu’EL 12:5-15.

Resurrection Sunday!

The Shabbat was changed from that of the Old Covenant to that of the New, when Yeshua rose from the dead on the first day of the week Sunday or rather Saturday evening!

Now that the final atonement for believers has been made Elohim knew that a blindness was to come over Israel so that the Gentiles too could come into the Covenant made by Yeshua!

This is the order that will remain in place until the fullness has come in and then all of Israel will be saved! These are tremendous events and they show us both the mercy and compassion of Elohim to all of His creation!

Matthew/Levi 28:1,  5-6,  9,  Mark 16:9,  Yochanan 3:3,  15-16,  20:1,  19,  Acts 20:7,  Romans 11:10-12,  1 Corinthians 16:2,  1 Yochanan 2:15,  Revelation 1:10.

The seventh Day!

It was on this day that Elohim rested from creating the world and the universe, time here is measured in what the human mind can manage to understand? We do not really know how long it took, but it is a far more complex issue that many scientists and believers want to see?

Rest was important to Elohim, and so it must be to us His creation, the whole of the Complete Tanakh tells us the story of interaction between man and the Eternal! Everything is being done to redeem or buy us back to Him!

Yeshua Ha ‘Moshia pointed out to the religious legalists of His day on Earth that to do good on the Shabbat was not breaking Ha ‘Torah, this is the great mercy of Elohim that He is not like us in our thinking!

Genesis 1:5-31,  2:2-3,   Matthew/Levi 12:10-13.

Loving Others? Two.

Faith Practised!

It is only by putting one’s faith to the test, that we will discover the power that Elohim has placed on us? Helping others both believers and none is the key to being a believer, it proves that we have the love of Yeshua in our hearts and that he has really called us?

Our role is to serve others and not be bias just to our own, we must have compassion and mercy towards those who do not even know that they are doing wrong? Because we too were once in that ignorant condition of legalism, selfishness and trying always to justify our actions?

Matthew/Levi 9:13,  Luke 18:13,  Ya’akov 3:17.

Loving Others? One.

The Power of Yeshua Adonai!

We can say that we believe, but if their is no fruit, something is seriously wrong with our walk with Yeshua? We must love others as we are loved by Elohim and forgiven our past sins!

Ruach Ha ‘Kodesh cannot move beside us to put into effect the gifts that have been given to us, to serve and lead others that we meet to faith in Yeshua!

Loving enemies and those who persecute us is hard, but if we claim we must follow to be really effective?

Matthew/Levi 5:5-11,  Romans 12:9-14,  Ephesians 1:4,  Hebrews 6:10.

Shavo’ut. Two.

Fruit of Ha Ruach!

It is one thing to have the fruit or the gifting of Elohim, but it is another thing to have love for others? Especially when they insult, undermine and cut us down, when we are not overly angered but have the insight to see that they are blinded as once we were in ignorance?

It is hard to be a believer, no matter what religious or non-religious backgrounds we may come from? The Complete Tankah tells us that there are only two kinds of people in this world, those know Ha ‘Adonai and those who do not, or who refuse to know Him!

The fruit is the outcome of the gift’s that are poured in and out of us, many rush for the big ones, teaching, tongues, prophecy? Yet it is the building of our character that is an essential work of Ruach Ha ‘Kodesh in us to end the temptations of self-centeredness and the cry of, ‘I want!’

Galatians 5:14,  16-21,  22-26,  Deuteronomy 21:20,  Psalm 1;3,  92:14,  John 16:7,  Romans 8:2,  4-5,  10,  2 Corinthians 3:6,  Ya’akov 3:17-18.
