Yom Kippur

Hesed-Banner-Process---0_LR

Yom Kippur
The Culmination of Adonai's Hesed
October 8, 2019

Jesus (Yeshua) fulfilled The Day of Atonement or Yom Kippur that comes about in the fall after the Feast of Trumpets.  Yom Kippur recognizes Father’s greatest act of hesed toward us.  The Lord has made His hesed (indescribable love) so tangible to me these past two months by opening up a treasure of understanding that I experienced in a big way on August 8 of this year. I am still not able to put the impact into words, but it has affected everything including my prayers.

In honor of this special lavish learning from my Father, I created this long banner with green satin letters on white linen to be the centerpiece of our home – Hesed Adonai Khadash kol Boker or The lovingkindness of the Lord is new every morning!

Praying Isaiah's Hope
A Request for Healing
September 11, 2019
Free PDF Download

Do you need to be healed in any aspect of your life today? I do. Let’s come into His presence with prayers for healing, praying from Isaiah 52 through 58.

I wrote this prayer in the first person, but you can fill in your name and the names of all those who God is placing on your heart. I encourage you to read it along with your Bible, since these are my own prayers taken from the passages. I’ve noted the Chapter and Verse where applicable.

Basking in Matthew 13

Basking in Matthew
A walk through Chapter 13
September 3, 2019
Free PDF Download

Dear friends,

I’ve been basking in the book of Matthew since this past April. Every sentence is exploding with meaning! I have just waded through Yeshua’s parables in Matthew 13. He had been teaching by the Galilean Sea where He had established a temporary home (Matthew 4:13). I always picture the profile of Him sitting on a hill overlooking the Sea.

I am a Reflector

ZZ---WIA-Page-9---Sep-Reflector_Crop

September – I am a Reflector
Reflector is the Hebrew lashaqaph and means reflect, mirror, make visible.

For God Who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves. 2 Corinthians 4:6-7

Choice Children, Part 2
Choice or Chaff—The Daniel 12/Matthew 3/Isaiah 40 Connection
August 2019
Free PDF Download

From the Hebrew word study of Daniel 12:3  from Choice Children, Part 1:  
“Those who abide in God consider their steps deeply. They receive discernment, direction and wisdom that causes them to shine so brightly that their lives enlighten, warn, admonish, and teach those around them without speaking a word. Their lives gleam with God’s purifying message, and many are drawn to Him through their brightness.”

In about AD 26-30, John, son of Zacharias and Elizabeth, emerged in the wilderness of Judea immersing Jewish people in the Jordan River. They would have seen this act as bathing for cleansing. John said he came to immerse for repentance. Repentance means to turn. John cried out in the wilderness for the people to turn from sin to God – to be cleansed from their own ways to walk in God’s ways.

Dear friends,

Daniel 12:10 says “Many will be purged, purified and refined” referring to the Lord’s people in the end times.

When I think of the word purge, I think of getting rid of things I don’t need. However, when I looked at the meaning of the Hebrew word in this passage for purge (bârar), it means to clarify, brighten, examine, polish, prove, and to make choice. The word bârar suggests the attention given to a favorite.

Zephaniah's Song
He Quiets Me

Dear friends,
 
Sometimes I have days. Days with disturbance in my emotions or mind. Days when I look up to my Father and ask for mercy and clarity. Last Monday was one of those days. Words that would describe my emotions were “limited, constricted, disquieted.” A friend listened to my heart and prayed for me. I went to my Father’s Word. Ahhh!

After listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and also having believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise who is given as a pledge guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of God’s own possession to the praise of His glory. Ephesians 1:13-14

Higher Ground
Father leads us
June 20, 2019
Free PDF Download

In Romans 8:14, Paul writes, “All who are led by the Spirit of God, these are the uihos (pronounced hwee-os’) of God.”  Uihos (νίός) is generally translated as sons, but its fuller meaning in the original Greek is “those whom God loves and cherishes as a Father.”

So, Romans 8:14 reads, “All who are led by the Spirit of God are those whom He loves and cherishes as a Father,” or “The Father leads His beloved children by His Spirit.”

When we receive Jesus, we are born into God’s family (John 1:12-13; John 3:3). We come into a physical birth by our parents, but then we come into a spiritual birth by our heavenly Father when we receive His Son, His costly sacrifice on our behalf – Jesus the Messiah. He cherishes us! He is the best Father anyone could ever imagine!
