A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Do not put yourself in the path of temptation — even King David could not resist it.

 

FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT  [Part 7 of 10]       
Love is Good Tempered! 
A very remarkable attribute. . .it is love that is not easily provoked. We might look upon a bad temper as a very harmless weakness, something only to be ignored.  However, the HOLY SCRIPTURES condemn a bad temper as one of the most destructive elements in human nature.

 

An ill temper is often a blot on an otherwise noble character.  Some men may be near perfect, and women might be entirely perfect, except for their easily ruffled, quick-tempered, or touchy disposition.  This combination of ill-temper and high moral character is one of the strangest and saddest problems of ethics (moral values).  The truth is, there are two great classes of sins — sins of the body and sins of disposition.

 

The younger prodigal son shows the sin of the body; the elder brother, the sin of disposition. [Luke 15. 11 - 32]  The elder brother had virtues the younger boy did not, but that type of an attitude has kept many out of the Kingdom of GOD due to an unloving character.  The elder brother's sinister, loveless soul contained the ingredients of jealousy, anger, pride, un-charitable, cruelty, self-righteousness, irritability, doggedness, spitefulness and easily irritated.

 

Are such sins of the negative disposition not worse to live in, and for others to live with, than sins of the body?  Our LORD YESHUA, the GOD/MAN answered this question HIMSELF when HE said, "I say unto you, that the tax collectors and harlots will enter the Kingdom of GOD before you." [Matthew 21. 31]   Anyone with such a despicable mood and decadent attitude cannot enter Heaven unless he is born anew.

 

We must go to "THE SOURCETHE BREATH OF ALL FLESH" WHO alone can change our inmost nature.  A soul is made sweet by putting in a great love, and a new spirit. . . the SPIRIT OF MESSIAH YESHUA.  The ALL-TOGETHER LOVELY SPIRIT OF THE HOLY ONE penetrating ours sweetens, purifies, and transforms us.  Nothing can change men like our MAJESTIC LOVING GOD does.  Therefore, "Let this mind be in you which was also in CHRIST JESUS." [Philippians 2. 5]

 

Remember, this is a matter of life or death.  "Whoever offends one of these little ones, which believe in ME, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea." [Matthew 18. 6]  In other words, it is better not to live than not to love!

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
I trust in YOU, O SOVEREIGN LORD GOD. . . my time is in YOUR hand.  Therefore, I sing praises to YOU endlessly.  May peace abundant descend from heaven with life for us and to all Israel, Amen!
Omer Day 42
Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Day) starts at evening. 

 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

Fruits of The Spirit (part 6 of 10)

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
A wise man understands with a hint, a donkey needs a big stick.

 

FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT  [Part 6 of 10]       
Love is Unselfish! 
This is Love — not even seeking things for ourselves at all.  Things cannot be great, the only greatness is Unselfish Love.

 

Unselfish Love is not a hardship because, with love, nothing is hard.  I believe that the yoke of MESSIAH YESHUA is easy.  HIS is a yoke of "service & obedience" — life as the GREAT DESIGNER intended it to be.

 

The most obvious lesson in our LORD'S teaching is that there is no happiness in having and getting, but only in giving and serving others! The LORD YESHUA said — "Whoever wants to be greatest among you, let him serve." [Matthew 20. 26]   Whoever would be happy, let him remember that there is but one way — it is more blessed to give than to receive. [Acts 20. 35]  

 

Whoever loves, gives!   Give more than just a thimble full of the "GOOD NEWS" that offers men abundant life.   But along with it, give joy, peace, rest, and hope.  MESSIAH YESHUA came to give men a more abundant life than they have, a life abundant in love, abundant in salvation, and redemption for the world.  Only this "Good News" can take hold of the whole man — body, soul, and spirit and give to each part of his nature its exercise and reward.  SHARE LOVE UNSELFISHLY!

 

"For it was fitting for HIM, for WHOM are all things and by WHOM are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the CAPTAIN of their salvation perfect through sufferings." [Hebrews 2. 10]   The LORD YESHUA ha'MASHIACH is the PERFECT EXAMPLE of unselfish, amazing love...GOD'S GREATEST GIFT OF LOVE to us.

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Because ALMIGHTY GOD was not only wanting to identify with our suffering and our sin, HE wanted to do it at a depth deeper than any we had ever known, and suffer more than we could ever suffer in order to prove HIS indescribable love for us.  So of all the deaths that MESSIAH YESHUA could have died, the FATHER foreordained for HIS SINLESS SON, HE chose crucifixion because it was the worse ignominious (humiliating, shameful, reprehensible) way to die.  Love so amazing demands HIS best for our worst.

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

Fruits of The Spirit (part 4 of 10)

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Happiness keeps you sweet; Trials keep you strong; Sorrows keep you human; Failures keep you humble.

 

FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT  [Part 4 of 10]       
Generosity & Humility Love's Charity!
"The generous person enjoys prosperity; he who satisfies others shall himself be sated."  And, "The generous man is blessed, for he gives of his bread to the poor." [Proverbs (Mishle) 11. 25; 22. 9 Tanakh, Kethuvim] So, "Do not harden your heart and shut your hand against your needy kinsman. Rather, you must open your hand and lend him sufficient for whatever he needs." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 15. 7 - 8 Tanakh, Torah]

 

The integrity of a CHRISTian's soul should be graciously courteous, rich, forgiving and fortified with the grace of generosity (Hebrew: nadiyb).  Generosity is also a giving heart that gives with no expectation of anything in return.  In other words, any motivation towards generosity other than love alone cancels its value.  The generous soul devises generous things; and by his generosity, he stands. The finest, most generous gift is of yourself!!!  

 

Now learn this further thing, humility (Hebrew: ‘anavah), which is loves fourth ingredient.  Humility is putting a seal on your lips and then forgetting what you have done.  "GOD opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble" therefore "Submit yourselves, then, to GOD. Come near to GOD and HE will come near to you. Humble yourselves before the LORD, and HE will lift you up." [James 4. 6 - 8, 10]   Without fail, the ALMIGHTY KING will save the downcast!

 

Honour, riches and life follow humility.  "O MIGHTY ONE, in YOUR glory, YOUR majesty and prosperously, ride with YOUR sword girded upon YOUR thigh; ride on in the cause of truth, humility, and righteousness; let YOUR right hand teach awesome deeds." [Psalms (Tehillym) 45. 3 - 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  After you have been kind, after love has gone forth into the world and done its beautiful work, it goes back into the shade again and says nothing about it.  Love hides even from itself.  Love waives even self-satisfaction.

 

"Therefore, as the elect of GOD, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as MESSIAH forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection." [Colossians 3. 12 - 14]   "Seek the LORD, all you meek of the land who have fulfilled HIS Law; seek righteousness, seek humility. Perhaps you will find shelter and be hidden on the day of the LORD'S anger." [Zephaniah (Tsefanyah) 2. 3 Tanakh, Nevi'im]   "The effect of humility is fear of the LORD, riches and honor and life." [Proverbs (Mishle) 22. 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim]

 

Love boasts not about itself, it is not puffed up.  Generosity and Humility can be two of the more pleasant gifts you can give daily all year through.  Try it!

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Every act of kindness that the EVER-LIVING MASTER DESIGNER performs should make man feel, not proud, but more humble and unworthy.

 

FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT  [Part 3 of 10]     
Love is Kindness Love Active!  
Have you ever noticed how much of MESSIAH'S life was spent simply in doing kind things, showing compassion, and meeting needs?  Just doing good for others, brings contentment. There is only one thing greater than kindness in the world, and that is Holiness (Hebrew: qodesh).  Our gracious ALMIGHTY GOD has put in our power the ability to be kind to those about us.

 

The greatest thing one can do for our HEAVENLY FATHER is to be kind.   I wonder why it is that we are not all more kind than we are?   How very much the world needs it!   How easy it is to do!   How quickly it acts!   How warm is the memory of it!   How super abundantly it pays itself back — for there is no debtor in the world so excellent and honorable as love.  "Love never fails!" [1 Corinthians 13. 8]   Love is the energy of life.

 

Where love is, GOD is.  Whoever dwells in love dwells in the OMNIPOTENT EVERLASTING LORD.  GOD is love!  So, love without discrimination, without measure, or hesitation. . . Love!   Lavish it upon the poor, where it is very easy; and upon the rich who often need it most; and upon our equals, where it is very difficult, and for whom perhaps, we each do least of all.

 

There is a difference between trying to please and showing kindness.   Loose no chance of showing kindness, for that is the constant and anonymous triumph of a truly loving spirit.   I shall pass through this world but once. Any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now.  Let me not defer it or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

 

As you practice (do, achieve, implement, perform) showing kindness, you will grow more like our wonderful LORD YESHUA, the BLESSED REDEEMER!   "The LORD your GOD is gracious, compassionate and merciful, slow to anger, abounding in kindness." [Joel (Yoel) 2. 13 Tanakh, Nevi'im]   "For great is HIS merciful kindness and steadfast love toward us; the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. HalleluYAH!" [Psalms (Tehillym) 117. 2 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  Because of the magnificent mercies of the LORD MESSIAH YESHUA, we can face tomorrow and be comforted now.  Victory is ahead and unlimited joys before us!

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
MOST HOLY LORD, continue to impart YOUR blessing upon us. Teach us to seek YOU evermore within the sanctuary of our souls, within the tabernacle of YOUR world, and in the congregation of YOUR worshipers."  May the grace of our LORD YESHUA ha'MASHIACH be with you always, Amen! I praise and thank YOU, ALMIGHTY ONE, for YOU comfort and delight my soul. YOU are my ROCK and my REFUGE, in YOU I have hope and place my trust.
 Be submissive to a superior, affable (pleasant, friendly) to a suppliant (beggar), and receive all men with cheerfulness; then, give your problems to the LORD GOD and find rest in HIM.
Omer Day 36

Fruits of The Spirit (part 2 of 10)

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Nothing reduces misfortune like patience.

 

FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT   [Part 2 of 10]     
Love is Patient Long Suffering! 
Patience (Hebrew: ‘arek) is the normal attitude of love:  Love passive; waiting to begin; not in a hurry; calm, ready to do its work when the summons comes.  But in the meantime, Patience wears the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit.  Love suffers long—bears all things—believes all things—hopes all things.  Love understands, therefore, in Patience wait.

 

Thus, "the supreme thing is love." In short, it is not a thing at all, but is the giving of a bright finish to our many words and our actions that make up every common day.  Truly, love is a supreme possession. . . it lasts!

 

This world is the great testing ground for us to practice patience.   Our LORD & KING, MESSIAH YESHUA is with you always, hence HE sees every effort you make, and knows the very intent of your heart. Practice patience!!

 

"For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the SCRIPTURES might have hope. Now may the GOD of patience and comfort grant you to be like-minded toward one another, according to CHRIST JESUS, that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify the GOD and FATHER of our LORD JESUS CHRIST." [Romans 15. 4 - 6] 

 

Be patient, establish your heart to stand strong and be of good courage, because the coming of the LORD is in sight.  Our prayer is that each of you grow stronger in the love of our GREAT ETERNAL LORD GOD, and that you study to know HIS heart and mind.

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
For all of us, daily life sometimes seems to be an obstacle course filled with rocks and thorns. But, when GOD'S PRECIOUS WRITTEN WORD is in the center of our life, we find sweet honey in the ROCK.  Have a blessed day as you saturate yourself in the sweetness of the MIGHTY LORD, the SOURCE OF LIFE.  Do not fear, nor be afraid, boldly declare the wonders of our GOD; we are HIS witnesses, HE will go before us, HE is our MIGHTY ROCK.  HE will sustain us with HIS right hand of justice and victoriously overcome in righteousness.
Omer Day 35  

 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

What Each Area of the Site is Meant For: Blogs - This is your personal space. This is where you should post thoughts that are not intended for extensive further discussion. Observations from personal study and events that have occurred in your life belong here. Unless your post ends with questions or makes it apparent that discussion is to follow, it should probably be a blog. As discussed later, blogs are limited to those who hold to historic Christian beliefs. Forums - This is for open discussion relating to the topic posted. Dialogue is encouraged to stay on topic, so if a side conversation begins, open a new discussion. This is where the majority of the activity has taken place so far. Topics should remain general in nature, while in depth discussion on narrow topics should take place in groups. Groups - This is a place to congregate with people who have similar interests and positions in order to have open discussion. The conversation in here is not required to remain on topic, so it is more ready to follow rabbit trails. This is where you should go if you want to gather with a particular kind of theologian. Before initiating a new group, we ask that you consider posting a question in the discussion forum area to see if there is enough interest to justify a separate group. The reason we encourage such action is that, in the event that a group is inactive for 6 months or more, the moderators of Scriptural Studies reserve the right to close down and delete the group due to inactivity. Events - This is available to anyone that wants to post an event that you think the members of Scriptural Studies may be interested in. Contact Denis, Rabbi Del, Rifkah, or Marti for more details on advertising. Our Attitude of conduct: In case you missed them on your way in, take some time to become acquainted with the conduct we expect on this site. You may find our Attidudes on the main forum page. Our purpose at Scripural Studies is that the conversations move in a Gracious way. We define Gracious in the following way: 1) Not closed minded 2) Not self-promoting 3) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste proof-texting 4) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste from other places 5) Irenic 6) Not slanderous 7) No spamming 8) Perpetual venting bitterness 9) Not confusing or disruptive But in all things you'll be welcome here
