Faith, Hope, Love
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
The more laws and ordinances are multiplied, the more theft and violence increases — stick with The Ten GOD etched on stone and hearts. . . Love one another! Leviticus 19:18 shows ones love for humanity: "Love your fellow as yourself" "Beloved is man for he was created in the image of GOD." [Sifra 4:12] "Beloved are the Children of Israel for they are called children of the LORD."  [Pirkei Avot 3:18]  We are all precious to GOD. There is no favoritism in Heaven.

 

FAITH, HOPE, LOVE       
"And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is LOVE." [1 Corinthians 13. 13]

 

Love and charity are one and the same in meaning.  Pure and undefiled BIBLICAL love before GOD and the HEAVENLY FATHER is concern for the welfare of others. This is True Charity in its highest manifestation. . . by demonstration.

 

Faith, Hope, Love — these three abiding virtues are all involved in our eternal salvation. The orthodox doctrine establishes that faith is the only means pertinent to salvation.  "By grace you are saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of GOD." [Ephesians 2. 8]

 

Hope's characteristic is effectively operational in salvation.   If we have what we hope for, we no longer hope, we have"For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope...but if we hope for what we do not see, then we eagerly wait for it with perseverance." [Romans 8. 24 - 25]   For those faithfully following MESSIAH YESHUA, hope is not just wishing, it is waitingconfidently expecting.  This hope is a "blessed hope" centered on KING MESSIAH YESHUA'S soon and imminent return. [Titus 2. 13]

 

Faith and Hope by which we are saved are themselves designed and directed in the BELOVED LORD JESUS.  Our faith is "the gift of GOD." The same is true of our Hope"CHRIST in you, the HOPE of glory." [Colossians 1. 27]

 

Saving faith and saving hope, gifts given from our HEAVENLY FATHER, are our faith and our hope.  But, the love that saves is not our love; it is the love of GOD ALMIGHTY.  And, because of GOD'S perfect love, we know how to love others effectively. "For GOD so loved the world that HE gave HIS ONLY-Begotten SON, that whoever believes in HIM should not perish but have everlasting life...through HIM the world might be saved." [John 3. 16 - 17]   These three abide, our gift of faith, our hope, and our love in response to HIS GREATER LOVE

 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
 Wishing you a beautiful Sabbath.  Thank YOU LORD GOD for filling the heart with marvelous joy and peace, for giving us strength of faith in YOU for even greater tasks.  Our confidence rests solely in YOU, our GREAT, ETERNAL, WONDERFUL LORD.  YOU are the LIFE of all, the HELP of those that flee to YOU, the HOPE of those who cry to YOU. Cleanse us from our sins, secret and open, and from every thought displeasing to YOUR goodness — purify our bodies and souls, our hearts and consciences, that with a pure heart, and a clear soul, with perfect love and calm hope, we may venture confidently and fearlessly to pray to YOU. Amen
Omer Day 24  

 

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.

Royal Garments of the Priests
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
As long as I do not speak a word, I am its master.  But once I say it, I am its slave.

 

ROYAL GARMENTS OF THE PRIESTS       
"You shall make the robe of the ephod of pure blue. The opening for the head shall be in the middle of it; the opening shall have a binding of woven work round about it shall be like the opening of a coat of mail so that it does not tear." [Exodus (Shemot) 28. 4 - 5 Tanakh, Torah]

 

The High Priest wore a special robe over the fine-twined linen breeches and coat.  This robe could only be put upon a person already wearing the fine linen garments.  It was put on from above and always worn as a symbol of office, authority and dignity.  The LORD YESHUA ha'MASHIACH is the very righteousness of GOD ETERNAL, as symbolized in the coat of linen; and HE is the KING.  Therefore, HE could wear the robe!  We who are the sons of the MOST HIGH GOD, wear the garments of salvation, dressed up in MESSIAH'S righteousness. So, we can be clothed from above with HIS heavenly dignity.  JESUS THE BELOVED is the KING/PRIEST; we are the Children of the KING, a royal priesthood.

 

It is not stated of what material this robe was to be made, only that it was blue — heaven's color, representing the LORD JESUS WHO came from heaven; it tells of HIS heavenly origin and destiny and of ours!  We are GOD'S people who have been born from above.

 

There was no seam in this robe, no beginning and no ending.  Our LORD YESHUA is from "everlasting to everlasting." [Psalms/Tehillym 90. 2]  HE has the "power of an endless life." [Hebrews 7. 16]   Those who are in MESSIAH wear this "spiritual dress" of Eternity for HE promises HIS sons, "because I live, you will live also" [John 14. 19], and "he that lives and believes in ME shall never die." [John 11. 26]

 

Around the neck of this garment was a linen corset ("tacharah" is the Hebrew word meaning binding of woven work — it implies "white or linen") which made it impossible to tear, for the rending of it was forbidden. [Leviticus/Vayikra 10. 6]   Notice in the fulfillment of this commandment and prophecy [Psalms/Tehillym 22. 18], the Roman soldiers did not divide the robe of the MAN OF SORROWS among themselves, as was the custom, but gambled for the whole garment instead. [Mark 15. 14; John 19. 24]   The HOLY ETERNAL ONE also had commanded that the people of Israel rend their hearts and not their garments. [Joel/Yoel 2. 13]  The LORD JESUS' robe was not torn, but HIS heart was [Psalms/Tehillym 22. 14] — broken for the sins of the world.  Caiphas did tear his garment, however, when YESHUA  stood before him.  The penalty, under the Law, for disobedience of defiling the priestly garment, was death.  Unconsciously Caiphas testified, by this tearing of his robe, that he "died" and was no longer the High Priest in Israel — that YESHUA is the TRUE HIGH PRIEST! [Leviticus/Vayikra 21. 10]

 

No man could take MESSIAH'S life from HIM, YESHUA deliberately laid it down of HIMSELF.  HIS robe was kept whole; it could not be torn.  And, no one can take our life in the LORD JESUS from us!  For all eternity, those who remain faithful, can rest in assurance that they belong to the MASTER CREATOR, the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL.

 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
May our Heavenly Father hear our prayers, that our long-awaited Messiah YesHUA, the Son of David, King of kings comes quickly. And, may His Holy Temple be rebuilt speedily, even in our day, Amen!  May you be blessed with love, hope, health, wisdom and GOD’S incredibly amazing grace as you seek HIM.
Omer Day 23
On this National Day of Prayer – we humbly bow before CREATOR GOD and give HIM thanks for HIS love, grace, mercies and forgiveness.  We hold up our national leaders and ask for wisdom and truth to be given them as they seek the face of the MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE and HIS righteous counsel.  

 

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.

Our Mighty God
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
The TRUE & LIVING GOD made you to be holy and you are responsible for knowing and being that.

 

OUR MIGHTY GOD      
"YOUR mighty acts, to all who are to come, YOUR beneficence (generosity), high as the heavens, O GOD, YOU WHO have done great things; O GOD, who is like YOU!" [Psalms (Tehillym) 71. 19 Tanakh, Kethuvim]

 

The IMMEASURABLE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE is merciful towards us in that HE chooses to show us what HE is like and that HE wishes to dwell within us. [Ephesians 2. 19 - 22]   We cannot begin to know everything about HIM, however, for we are "the thing formed." [Romans 9. 20]   Yet, HOLY SCRIPTURE does speak about "that which may be known of GOD." [Romans 1. 19]

 

The ETERNAL ONE, blessed be HE, is the GREAT GOD OF HOPE [Romans 15. 13], the GOD OF PEACE and the GOD of all grace. [1 Peter 5. 10]  The ALMIGHTY GIVER OF LIFE is rich in mercy [Ephesians 2. 4] and HE "cannot lie." [Titus 1. 2]   Our OMNISCIENT REDEEMER is also the "JUDGE of all" [Hebrews 12. 23], as well as "a CONSUMING FIRE." [Hebrews 12. 29]   The Throne of the LORD is forever [Hebrews 1. 8], the "worlds were framed by" HIM. [Hebrews 11. 3]  In fact, GOD "built all things" [Hebrews 3. 4] and preserves them to keep them all alive. [Nehemiah/Nechemah 9. 6]  "For by HIM all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through HIM and for HIM. And HE is before all things, and in HIM all things consist." [Colossians 1. 16 - 17]

 

It is the GLORIOUS LORD GOD alone WHO "gives the increase" [1 Corinthians 3. 7], WHO "has reconciled us to HIMSELF by JESUS CHRIST" [2 Corinthians 5. 18], WHO "raises the dead." [Philippians 4. 19]   HIS peace is perfect and beyond all understanding. [Philippians 4. 7]

 

"There is no power but of GOD." [Romans 13. 1]  Moreover "the foolishness of GOD is wiser than men and the weakness of GOD is stronger than men." [1 Corinthians 1. 25]   "There is no other GOD but ONE." [1 Corinthians 8. 4]  The ALMIGHTY ONE is unique, unlike anything or anyone, but HIS creation reflects HIM.   All that is true and wise and lovely is defined by HIS measure.   No wonder John tells us, "When I saw HIM, I fell at HIS feet as dead" [Revelation 1. 17]; to which the LORD MESSIAH YESHUA responded — "Fear not, I AM the FIRST and the LAST."

 

The HOLY ONE, GOD THE CREATOR is worthy of our praise. "Praise our GOD, all you HIS servants, and you that fear HIM, both small and great." [Revelation 19. 5]  Hallelu'YAH! How could we help but worship and adore HIM!

 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
 Help us, O our GOD, to banish from our hearts all pride and vain-glory, all confidence in worldly possessions, all self-sufficient leaning upon our own reason.  Fill us with the spirit of meekness and the grace of modesty, that we may become wise in the fear of YOU. May we never forget that all we have and prize is but lent to us, a trust for which we must render account to YOU.   O HEAVENLY FATHER , put into our hearts the love and fear of YOU, that we may consecrate our lives to YOUR service and glorify YOUR NAME in the eyes of all men.

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.

Israel's Independence Day
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
"I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they shall never hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of the LORD, do not keep silent, and give HIM no rest till HE establishes and till HE makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth." Isaiah/Yeshayah 62:6-7

 

ISRAEL’S INDEPENDENCE DAY YOM HA’ATZMA’UT        
"Can a land give birth in a single day? Or shall a nation be born all at once? Yet Zion travailed and at once bore her children! Shall I WHO bring on labor not bring about birth? says the LORD. Shall I who cause delivery shut up the womb? says your GOD. Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad with her, all you who love her! Join in her jubilation, all you who mourn over her that you may suck from her breast consolation to the fill, that you may drink deeply from her bosom and be delighted with the abundance of her glory." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 66. 8 – 11 Tanakh, Nevi’im]

 

Command to Settle the Land of Israel: On 5 Iyar 5708 (May 14, 1948 on the Gregorian Calendar), when the establishment of the State of Israel was declared, the Nation of Israel merited to fulfill the TORAH’S command to settle the Land of Promise.  Individual Jews lived in the Land prior to this, it is true, but the commandment applies to the entire nation, which is bidden to bring the Land under Jewish sovereignty. [see Deuteronomy/Devarim 11 & 31; Numbers/Midbar 33 & 53; & Nachmanides’ Commentary]   Jewish Law, in fact, rules that the obligation to mourn destroyed cities in the Land of Israel is dependent on Jewish sovereignty. 

 

The Beginning of Redemption & Sanctification of GODS NAME: The establishment of the State of Israel removed the disgrace of Exile.  For generation after generation, we wandered in the Diaspora, we suffered terrible humiliation and pogroms, we were a subject of mockery among the nations, and we were subject to mass slaughter.  Observers saw us and said there was no hope for us.  This was a situation of terrible — desecration of GOD'S NAME — for "you (Israel) are called by GOD'S NAME." [Deuteronomy/Devarim 28]

 

GOD'S HOLY WORD, as prophesied in so many places in the HOLY WORD, was that HE would return us to the Land.  But with the passing of so many centuries in which this was not fulfilled, the desecration of GOD'S NAME increased, and Israel's enemies concluded that Israel would never return.  And then the miracle happened [May 14, 1948], and GOD'S WORD was fulfilled. This was a great sanctification of GOD'S NAME, and it became even stronger during the Six Day War when we liberated Jerusalem and the holy cities in Judea and Samaria.

 

This process of the Ingathering of the Exiles and the flowering of the desert is the beginning of the promised Redemption.  As the Talmud states, "There is no clearer sign of the Redemption than this, as is written in the Book of Ezekiel "But you, O mountains of Israel, shall yield your produce and bear your fruit for MY people Israel, for their return is near." [Ezekiel (Yehezke-El) 36. 8 Tanakh, Nevi’im]

 

Yes, there is still much to improve and put right; unfortunately, we have not all merited to do teshuvah [return, repentance] and move to the Land of Israel. But our Sages have taught that there are two types of Redemption — full repentance leading to miraculous Redemption, and the type that takes place through natural processes, accompanied by great difficulties and hardships.  These will cause the Jewish People to return home — and thus we will progress, step by step, until the Complete Redemption.

 

Jewish Salvation: On Independence Day 1948, the Jewish Nation was saved. It went from a state of subservience to the nations, to one of political freedom.  We also went from a situation of potential death, in that we were unable to defend ourselves from our mortal enemies, to one of life, because since that time we have fought our enemies and, with the help of ALMIGHTY GOD, emerged victorious.

 

Some 21,000 Jews have been killed in the 60 years since the State was established — but just a few years before that, during the Holocaust, six million holy Jews were murdered over the course of just five years — a rate of nearly 3,500 times more.

 

This day was a salvation even for Jews living in the Diaspora, in that they now had a country that would always be able to take them in, and even works on their behalf in the international arena. Even the Communist regimes were forced to allow Jews to leave — something that would have been inconceivable before the State of Israel was established.

 

Spiritual Relief: Spiritually, as well, the Jewish People were saved by the State of Israel. For various reasons, a great spiritual crisis overtook the Jewish People over the past 200 years, and as countries modernized, the Jews became more assimilated.  In the United States, for instance, most young Jews marry non-Jews, and those who marry Jews have relatively few children.  The Jewish communities abroad are thus getting smaller and smaller.  Only in the State of Israel is the Jewish population growing, and assimilation is relatively sparse. 

 

Furthermore, the percentage of Jews in Israel who are connected to TORAH and an observant lifestyle is larger than in any other Jewish concentration in the world. This spiritual salvation was the result of the establishment of the State of Israel, which enabled the Ingathering of the Exiles and obviated the lures of world-wide assimilation.

 

Thus, Israel Independence Day (Yom Ha’Atzmau’t - observed 6 Iyar 5777) is thus decorated with three layers of holiness: the holiness of the commandment of settling the Land; the holiness of the Sanctification of GOD'S NAME and the beginning of the Redemption; and the holiness of the physical and spiritual salvation of the Jewish People and blessings to the whole world when they turn to MESSIAH YESHUA.

 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Happy 69th Birthday, Israel! Remembering Yom ha'Atzma’ut, Israel’s Independence Day — Israel’s unique determination, tough resistance, courage and integrity and ingenuity. Though nominally celebrated on the 6th day of Iyar (ה' באייר) in the Hebrew calendar (corresponding to May 2nd this year) — the anniversary of the day in which Israel Independence was proclaimed, when David Ben-Gurion publicly read the Israeli Declaration of Independence. Yom ha'Atzma’ut centers around the declaration of the establishment of the State of Israel on the 14th of May 1948. Our hope is not yet lost — to be a free nation in our own land.
 The special prayer for Independence Day begins with Psalm 107, in which we say, “Hodu la’ha’Shem — Give thanks to GOD for HE is good, HIS kindness is everlasting.”  The Psalm lists those who must give this thanks — “those who are redeemed by GOD, those whom HE has redeemed from enemies, and gathered them from different lands, from east and west, north and south.”
 Obedience will be righteousness for us, as we are careful to observe all the commandments of the LORD our GOD.  May you witness the care, love and presence of the MOST HOLY ONE this day and always. Celebrating the gaiety and festivities of Israel’s 69th Independence Day…Yom ha’Atzma’ut, the land we love.
 Israel represents the greatest national success story of all time. Despite external threats and terror, we remain a democratic oasis in a regional cauldron of barbarism, providing the right to vote to all citizens and guaranteeing genuine freedom of religion and freedom of expression. Our success defies rationality and by any benchmark must be deemed miraculous.  Today, on 69th Anniversary we should give thanks to the ALMIGHTY for enabling us to be the blessed Jewish generation, privileged to live in freedom in our resurrected ancient homeland. We should continually remind ourselves that our success defies rationality and by any benchmark must be deemed miraculous.
Omer Day 21  

 

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.

Law of Moses
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
You don’t need a pulpit to preach the GOSPEL; your everyday actions are a sermon on their own. Preach accurately!

 

LAW OF MOSES        
"Then HE said to them, "These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses (Torah) and the Prophets (Nevi’im) and the Psalms (Kethuvim) concerning ME."  And HE opened their understanding, that they might understand the SCRIPTURES." [Luke 24. 44 - 45] 

 

MESSIAH YESHUA, on the day of resurrection, had given a wonderful session of SCRIPTURE teaching to two of HIS followers on the Road to Emmaus (perhaps Cleopas and his wife, Mary who had been at the cross, see John 9:25).  "Beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, HE expounded to them in all the SCRIPTURES the things concerning HIMSELF." [Luke 24. 27] Later that same evening, RISEN LORD appeared to the eleven apostles and the other disciples, in the upper room, and gave a similar report to all of them that HE had to the couple on the road.

 

We learn so much from our MASTER TEACHER concerning how we should also teach the complete WRITTEN WORD; for it was through "the SPIRIT OF CHRIST" [1 Peter 1. 11], WHO in actuality wrote the HOLY TEXT.  The whole BIBLE speaks of MESSIAH in prophecy, in type, and in other ways.  MESSIAH YESHUA began with the writings of Moses, meaning first of all the account of creation and ancient history which is the foundation of all the rest.

 

It is quite evident that LORD YESHUA regarded "all SCRIPTURE" to be of DIVINE authority which "must be fulfilled" either at HIS first coming or HIS Second Coming.  HE believed in the perfect and absolutely infinite inspiration of THE LIVING WORD OF GOD, as well as the miracle of fulfilled prophecy. Even the writings of Paul, it is stated, "If anyone thinks himself to be a prophet or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things which I write to you are the commandments of the LORD." [1 Corinthians 14. 37]

 

Even in the case of these closest followers, it was essential that the HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD "open their understanding" if they were really to "understand SCRIPTURES."   All who hope to teach the WORD OF TRUTH today should teach as the ALL-WISE MASTER HIMSELF taught, for MESSIAH is our GREAT TEACHER.

 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
 YOURS, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, the glory, and the victory, and the majesty; for all that is in heaven and in the earth belongs to YOU; YOURS is the kingdom, O LORD, and YOU are exalted as head above all.  May our lips ever declare praises to YOU, LORD YESHUA our KING, HELPER, SAVIOR & SHIELD for YOUR loving kindness is mighty over us.
Our prayer for each of you is for mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance from our WONDERFUL REDEEMER. 
 Happy 69th Birthday, Israel! This evening begins the celebration of Yom ha'Atzma’ut, Israel’s Independence Day.
 Omer Day 20  

 

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.

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
