I am Healed!

Blessed are You, Adonai our God, King of the universe, who HEALS us of EVERY disease and affliction, know and unknown.We thank You, Adonai Y’shua, our Savior King, for every drop of blood that You shed at the whipping post, for every stripe of the whip that You bore upon Your body.It is because of, and through, the stripes and the blood that we stand HEALED, for the Word says, “He sent His Word (Y'shua), and HEALED them”.Thank You, ABBA, that to those of us that walk in covenant relationship with You, the SON of Righteousness shall rise with HEALING in His wings!Hallelu-YAH!

Out of Darkness

Never Heavy

Blessed are You, Adonai our God, King of the universe, who rested on the seventh day, and blessed it.The word ‘shabat’ means rested, and we CHOOSE to rest this day, this day that You have sanctified and set apart.We CHOOSE to honor You, Your Torah, and praise the works of Your hands.We thank You, Father, for this opportunity to joyfully be obedient to Your Torah!We delight in You, Lord, and Your instructions are never grievous, or heavy!

A Thanksgiving Offering

“Always be joyful. Pray regularly. IN EVERYTHING GIVE THANKS, for this is what God wants from YOU who are united with the Messiah Yeshua.”(1Thessalonians 5:16-18 CJB, emphasis mine)
For some years now, YHWH has been very quietly speaking to me about a continual offering of ‘thanksgiving’, an attitude, a frame of mind, a LIFESTYLE that reflects a heart filled with gratitude and thanks.As we in America approach the day normally set aside as “Thanksgiving Day”, I perceive that YAH is challenging us to remember, and GIVE THANKS, for all that we are, all that we have, and all that we WILL have, through our Lord, Savior, and King, Y’shua the Messiah.
Traditionally, we celebrate “Thanksgiving” on the fourth Thursday of November, a day of “thanks” established by the early Pilgrim settlers.But the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob established the offering of ‘thanksgiving’ and praise centuries ago, through a minstrel/king by the name of David.When David brought the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusale…

MY Praise!

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who has given me ears to hear, eyes to see, hands to touch, a nose to smell, a tongue to taste, and a voice to sing Your praise! Thank You, my Father in Heaven, that I have the ability to enjoy all the works of Your hands, and to praise and glorify You IN and FOR it! “Adonai `Elyon, You are awesome, truly a GREAT king over all the earth!”You are so worthy to receive ALL of my praise! Hallelu-YAH! Ps 94:9; Prov 20:12; Ps 47; 47:2 ©2011

Sabbath Light

Blessed are You, Adonai our God, King of the universe, who sanctifies and sets us apart through Your TORAH.It is through Your TORAH that we have the joy and beauty of the Sabbath rest, where we learn of Your LIGHT and love, and learn how to rest IN You.Blessed are You, Adonai our God, who sanctifies and LIGHTS our Sabbath.Truly, You are Lord of the Sabbath, and we thank You, our Adonai YHWH!

Light

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who is the Giver of LIGHT!As I watch the dawning of a new day, I meditate on the LIGHT that You spoke into existence, the sun to rule the day, and the moon for the night. Your WORD tells me that LIGHT is a garment that You wear, and the day will come when we will no longer need the sun or moon for our light, for YOU, our “’Or Goyim”, Light of the Nations, will be our LIGHT.You are the LIGHT of the world, and as long as I cling to YOU, believe in YOU, and keep my eyes focused on YOU, I will NEVER walk in darkness.I praise You, I honor You, and I give You thanks … Isa 45:7; Jer 31:35; Ps 104:2; Isa 60:19; Isa 42:6; John 12:46 ©2011

YOUR Peace

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who is the author and originator of peace.Your name is “Sar Shalom”, the Prince of Peace, and peace is found only in an intimate relationship with You.By recognizing and acknowledging who YOU are, and accepting Your kingship in our lives, we are flooded and enveloped with YOUR peace, the peace that is beyond understanding.Safe and secure, we KNOW that our Creator will never leave us, never abandon us, but tenderly watches over us, ‘keeping’ us under HIS wings.How we love You, our Elohim and our King!

Voice of Reason

But be doers of the Word [obey the message], and not merely listeners to it, betraying yourselves [into deception by REASONING CONTRARY TO THE TRUTH].”(James 1:22 Amp, emphasis mine)
We find many instances throughout the Word of God of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Simply put, it is called FAITH, “For by it the elders obtained a good report” (Hebrews 11:2 WoY).
However, let us look at the other side of this coin.What IF, instead of preparing the ark, Noah “reasoned” in his mind “I don’t know how to do this, I have never seen an ark before, let alone this thing called RAIN.I am sure I can’t do this.”
What IF, instead of heading out to parts unknown, Abraham began to “reason” in his mind at the impossibility of what he was about to do.What IFhe told YHWH, “I might loose my seat in the city gates!Besides that, I have no idea what is out there!”
What IF, instead of making a commitment to honor YHWH’s TORAH, and especially His dietary rules, the four Hebrew young men “reasoned”

In Your Courts

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who gently calls to me to come, come and fellowship, come and let You LOVE on me.It never ceases to amaze me that You might desire my company more than I desire Yours, and Your presence is the one place that I can never get enough of. Oh, my Father, my YHWH, my Adonai, my King, my Elohim.You are the every breath that I draw, the every beat of my heart.Better a day in your courtyards than a thousand [days elsewhere]. Better just standing at the door of my God's house than living in the tents of the wicked.“Elohim Chayim”, You are the LIVING God, and I worship You. Ps 84; Deut 5:26; Matt 16:16 ©2011

Leaving Them Behind

"If you come to me but will not leave your family, you cannot be my follower. You must love me more than your father, mother, wife, children, brothers, and sisters--even more than your own life!”(Luke 14:26 ERV)
While spending time this last week studying the assigned TORAH portions, I came across an interesting commentary pertaining to the story of Lot, his family, and their escape from Sodom (see Genesis 19).According to Ancient Jewish wisdom, Lot and his wife had more than the twodaughters they left Sodom with.In fact, there are some who have believed that the sons-in-law to Lot, referenced in verse 14, were married to, AND cohabitating, with their wives.The two young maidens that departed Sodom with their parents were the last unmarrieddaughters left to Lot and his wife.
This same Ancient Jewish wisdom believes the reason Lot’s wife looked back toward Sodom was NOT because she was yearning for the lifestyle she had left behind.On the contrary; she was grieving for the children …

Anointing

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who POURS out YOUR anointing, Your presence, Your gifting, into Your people, Your children.You fill us with individual gifts and talents, polish and perfect them, all for You to use for Your own designs and purposes.Your anointing is a precious, HOLY thing, something to be treasured, and never to be taken lightly.It is found in Your presence, and through the presence of the “Ruach HaKodesh”, the Holy Spirit, living within us.Thank You, ABBA, thank You for the anointing, for the sweetness of Your presence that goes with us.Thank You, our “Adonai YHWH”, our Lord God, for the oil that You anoint our heads with, that our cups overflow continually.We are careful to give YOU all of the honor, praise, and glory due YOUR Name … Halleu-YAH! James 1:17; Jer 5:21-23; John 14:17; Ex 33:14; Ps 23:5; Ps 9:1; Ps 86:12 ©2011

GOOD Things

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who liberally POURS out of Your storehouse all manner of “good things” to those who strive to live according to Your Word, Your TORAH.Your eyes are continually, constantly, running to and fro, throughout all the earth, looking for those upon whom You can POUR.As long as OUR eyes are trained and focused on YOU, on Your Word, Your TORAH, Your delight is IN us, and Your thoughts toward us are only “good”.Thank You, ABBA Father, for You satisfy us with “good things”, and our lives are renewed, like the eagles!How awesome is our “El Hannora”, the AWESOME God!Hallelu-YAH!

Light Show

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who is the "Master Engineer" of the most brilliant fireworks show that has ever been known.You are the God who created every star, comet, asteroid, meteor, planet, and all of the many intricacies of our complicated galaxy.You sprinkled the heavens with each and every one, set in their appointed place, to dazzle us with their brilliance and color.And when You allow one to break loose for a special purpose, You put on a special display like no other!4th of July cannot even come close to the excellence of the heavenly glory!Truly, You are my “Ellohei Tehillati”, the God of my Praise!

Which God?

“I and the Father are ONE.” (John 10:30 Amp, emphasis mine)
Some years ago, there was a comment made by a young lady that professed and confessed an intimate relationship of salvation with Y’shua of Nazareth, Son of the Living God.The comment was, basically, that her writings and teachings are not centered and based on the WORD of God – they are centered on God Himself.”This same young lady now labels herself a “prophetess” – but whose oracle is she prophesying?
Every structure MUST have a solid firm, foundation; this is a Biblical principal (Luke 6:48).Even our Bible is build upon the foundation of the TORAH; in the 3500 some years since it was given, TORAH still stands as strong as it ever did.When we do not center and base ALL of our beliefs on the WORD of YHWH (both the written and the Living), then we do not have the Bible as our anchor. When we separate the Written WORD from the Living WORD, then we also separate Y’shua.When we separate Y’shua, then we also separate His shed bloo…

OUT of the Darkness

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who gives us LIGHT, and leads us OUT of ALL darkness and chaos, and IN to peace and security.Thank You, ABBA Father, that You are NOT the author of confusion and insanity.We give You praise, “Ruach HaKodesh”, Holy Spirit, for it is due to YOUR dwelling IN us, teaching, leading and guiding us, that we can say with confidence, “we have the MIND of Y’shua”!Thank You, Adonai, that You are our “SarShalom”, our Prince of Peace in the middle of the storm, and it is in You that we find our security.Hallelu-YAH!!!

THIS Day

Blessed are you, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who has given us another dawn, another day, another morning to rise and sing Your praise! You are the God who brought order out of chaos, who hung the stars in their appointed positions, and suspends the earth in its place.Our YAH is an AWESOME God, who reigns from heaven above!We choose to honor You, THIS day, for it is the day that YOU have made!
