CHRISTMAS. One.

December 13, 2018

The events Surrounding?

The story of Christmas is made up of several key events that surround the emphasis of the miraculous entry of Yeshua into human flesh!

Each of these events fulfill the scriptures to prove that all this was well known of by the Prophets, despite the unbelief of the nation and their choices of bad Kings.

By the time that these events took place about two thousand years ago Israel was once more in the Temple order decline, so the last prophet Malachi informs us! Greek occupation, followed by the Roman conquest, lead to various backlash revolts such as the Maccabi success, which gave some independence to Ha ‘Yehudim again?

But despite all this decline there were still some believers I various places, we see this opening with the birth of Yochannan the Baptizer, whose parents were cousins to Mari and Yoseph!

Matthew/Levi  2:4-6,    Luke 1:5-25,   39-45,   57-66,   Hebrews 12:2,    Revelation 22:16.

Chanukkah! Two.

November 29, 2018

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.

The Temple! Two.

July 20, 2018

Focus on being Born-Again?

Today there is no Temple in Yerushalayim, but right-wing and Orthodox Y’hudim are planning to build a new one before the coming of their false Moshia!

But for all believers the Apostle Paul (Shual) tells us that we are the Temple of Ruach Ha ‘Kodesh and He is precious to us as a guide and helper or comforter! Known in the Greek of the New Testament as Paraclete, the word encompasses many meanings along the lines that we have already covered!

One day when we all make it home to the New Heavenly Yerushalayim, there will no longer be a need for any kind of Temple, since the light of Yeshua will illuminate us and it!

Exodus 25:9-26:30,  1 Kings 6:3-33,   Psalm 61:4,   Acts 7:44,   1 Corinthians 3:16-17,  Hebrews 9:1-11,  13:10,   Revelation 21:3,  22.

The Temple! One.

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.

They were in the Temple/Ha ‘Heki ‘EL.

For believers world-wide and in Israel Pentecost marks the beginning of the Church or Ekklesia? But almost immediately there is a division between the believers, that is more of a problem today than it was then?

The Basilea was already in existence at the time of the Ascension of Yeshua and this giving of Ha ‘Ruach Ha ‘Kodesh was for the empowerment of all believers both Yehud’im and Ha ‘Goyim!

The giving of the Holy Spirit, breath of God, the third person of the Trinity was to help us serve Elohim in various ways as the gifting’s are divided to us. Ha ‘Ruach is in each one of us prompting us in prayer and in service and guiding us in everyday living!

Acts 2:1-11,  2:33,  38,  5:3,  Ephesians 5:19,  1 Timothy 4:1-5,  Hebrews 9:14,  2 Peter 1:21,  1 John 2:20,  Jude 1:20.

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.

 

Treatys Forbidden. Part-Two.

The Problems.

Unfortunatly Y’srael did start to make treaties with its neighbours and so not long after entering the Promised Land, their gradual decline was underway. After the time of the Judges, they wanted a King like the other nations so poor Shamu’ EL was put in the position of getting Shua’l and in later year this king would do the unthinkable of seeking a witch to raise the prophet from the grave.

The Babylonian exiles, the destruction of the Temple even after the death and resurrection of Yeshua was the cause of political intrigue. ‘We have no king, but Caesar!, fifty years later they were kicked out of the land.

!834 Years later they wer able to return and 50 years later establish the modern Sate of Israel, but ever since 1948 they are up to the same things again. They are in constant peace negotiations with the P’lishtim, who today are showing them with knives how much peace they want.

Exodus 23:27,  Deuteronomy 7:22-23,  11:25, Joshua 1:5, 6:2, 10:8, 10, 23-25,  23:9.

The Kingdom. Part-Two.

Be Warned.

During the ministry of Yeshau people everyday saw miricales as he passed by them and many thought that the kingdom would soon appear, but it was not yet the time for Y’srael.

Yeshua warned that certain events were to occure in Yerushalayim, before He would return to establish the Kingdom of Y’srael and people needed to see theses events.

Luke 19:11,  2 Thessalonians 2:3-4.

God Like Music.

Do you ever wonder how some ‘Christians have got themselves today in a twix about having music in the ‘Church, when it was fine in those ancient days of Ysra’el both with the Tabernacle and the Temple.

Here we see Natan joined by Gad to help King David sort out the instruments for the Tabernacle.

2 Chronicles 29;25,  35:15.

The New Yerushalayim.

Men have plans, Judaism has plans to capture the Temple mount from Muslim and to start re-building the Holy Temple. These are the facts now and at an appointed time this work will begin.

There will be much bloodshed and hatred expressed on all sides, but it will work out eventually to a peace between a false messiah and the world.

But for us, we know the real truth and perhaps in these processes being worked through many of us will die and enter Glory to be with Yeshua. We also know the historical events of the complete Tanakh and our role to share the Good News of Yeshua Adonai to this dying and decaying world around us.

Elohim, Abba has promised us we will see the New Yerushalayim.

Acts 5:20-21,  Revelation 3:12.
