The Temple! One.

July 5, 2018

The focus of Y’srael.

In times past the Temple was the focus of the people to bring their sacrifices for their failures to be offered by the priestly order, it was the central place of worship for Ha Y’hudim and the dwelling of Elohim on Earth!

But because of the sin, ignorance and arrogance of the people and the way that the Prophets were mistreated as they tried to warn the Kings that they were going against the will of Elohim to submit, two Temples were destroyed and the nations scattered to the four winds of the Earth via Babylon!

Yeshua told the people two-thousand years ago that their failure to trust in Elohim and to believe in Him was their ruin, because they were trusting in stones and religious duties over that of faith!

Luke 21:6,   1 Kings 9:7-9,   Yesha ‘Yahu 64:10-11,   Jeremiah 26:18,   Lamentations 2:6-8,   Zechariah 14:2,   Matthew/Levi 24:2,   Mark 13:2.

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.

Ha ‘Torah Permits.

Yeshua showed up the religious men of His day as to their twisting of legal matters over the Shabbat, sadly not much has changed withe excuses over changing the distance one can travel between home and the Synangouge?

The Talmidim ate on that most Holy day, just as King David and provision had been made in the Law for the Priests and many others to work on this day. In fact many people have to work on the sabbath in hospitals, police, security forces, power distribution and the military!

Matthew/Levi 12:1-2, 8, Numbers 28:9-10, Deuteronomy 23:25, Nehemiah 13:17, Mark 2:23-28, 1 Shamu ‘EL 21:3-6.
