PESACH-EASTER! Two.

Spices for Burial.

We tend once more to over look these passages, because they perhaps no longer have any meaning to the Ekklesia?

But they are important to us and are still worth examining and we also see that in this case these were prepared by the woman of the ministry of Yeshua, Mary the Prostitute, Mary His Earthly mother two woman who had a deep love for Him!

The legal requirement of these spices had their roots in the customs of the Egyptians and were incorporated by the Y’hudim for their own requirement, the main being that of keeping flies away from the decomposing body.

Mark 15:47-16:1,    Luke 23:55-56,    Exodus 30:25-37,    2 Chronicles 16:14.

Forgiving each Other!

February 7, 2019

Love, Marriage and Divorce?

Divorce was never in the vocabulary of Elohim, it was something forced upon Moshe by the people in the Sinai!

Next week millions will be spent of St. Valentines day in the annual day of slushy romance, many will propose and get married enjoying the aspect of the experience!

But about this time next year or the year after depending on the marriage date, they will be divorcing because I did not sign up to this?

We are all Sinners so the Complete Tanakh tells us and because of our fallen nature we are all selfish! This ugly monster is in each of us and it will come out from time to time in differing degrees! But the answer to the problem is to learn to forgive and press on, if we really love each other?

Since Elohim loved us, and gave us His one and only son, since He forgives us our failures, then we too must learn to forgive others!

Psalm 130:4,    Jeremiah 50:20,   Matthew/Levi 6:12-15,   18:21,   Yochanan 3:14-16,   20:23,   Ephesians 4:32,    Colossians 3:16.

Chanukkah! Two.

The fulfillment Of!

Malachi id the last Prophet of the Tanakh and much of what he has to say is about the decline in the standards required by Elohim in relation to Temple sacrifices! But we are then left with a four hundred year gap until the birth of Messiah to a young virgin in Roman occupied Israel!

But those four hundred years in Jewish history are not left empty, we have the rise of the Maccabees and the Hasmoneans revolting first against the Greeks and then the Romans?

But then the last Temple is finally restored and dedicated by the Festival of lights, looking back for Messianic believers we now understand this was a prophetic interlude to Yeshua words, I Am the light of Ha ‘Olam!

But there is more when Yochanan tells us that, ‘For Elohim so loved Ha ‘Olam that He gave us His one and only Son Yeshua!

Malachi 4:2,  Matthew/Levi 4:16,   Luke 2:32,   Yochanan 3:15-16,    8:12,    9:5,    Acts 26:18,   Ephesians 5:14.

Many Nations and Israel!

If one talks to older folks, you hear much about the past and the wars with their respective horrors, but today you can speak to refugees from Afghanistan and the Middle-East and hear much the same!

But when you speak with Israelis you learn quickly that they have to live with it, its like Beirut in the seventies or N-Ireland during the troubles?

People were at home and they had no where special they could go, maybe for a while a short move for a rest, but then you had to come home?

People today live in the inner cities around the world and now are getting a taste of some serious out of control crime, it not quite the same but it is bad when you loose a loved one, a child to stabbings!

Genesis 14:2,   31:26,   Joshua 11:20,   Psalm 120:7,   Luke 14:31,   2 Corinthians 10:3,  Alef Kefa 2:11,   Revelation 2:16.

Loving? Part-Two.

Pesach-Easter!

Elohim so loved Ha ‘Olam that he gave us His one and only Son, Yeshua!  Yochanan 3:14-16.

This is quite a statement to be found in the New Testament of the Complete Tanakh, but it is only a part of something greater that then leaves us with the challenge of applying this Love of Salvation to others around us?

Ephesians 2:4,  Alef Yocahanan 4;10-11, 19.

The world and Israel is full of trouble, the rise of anti-Semitism, attacks on Jewish communities, and this holiday many Christians will be killed for just going to Church!

We have the responsibility to share our faith and testimony, along with financial support and visiting the sick, poor and caring for widows and orphans?

Yov 22:9,  Psalm 68:5,  Lamentations 5:3,  Ya’akov 1:27.
