A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Love is a fire which burns and a bush which is not consumed. Like Moses, be not devoured by such flames, but transformed through them; learn to love regardless.

 

CUSTOMS MEZUZAH        
"Inscribe them (the WORDS of the LAW) on the doorposts of your house and on your gates." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 6. 9 Tanakh, Torah]

Mezuzah is the Hebrew word for doorpost — to which place the ceremonial object is fastened.  The root word for Mezuzah is zuz which means "to turn oneself about" — hence the meaning of the doorpost is "that upon which hinges turn."  This symbol of the Jewish profession of faith is a small wooden, glass, ceramic or metal case from two to six inches in length containing a rectangular-piece of parchment inscribed with passages from the HEBREW SCRIPTURES.  The paper scroll inside the case is really the Mezuzah and the Hebrew words on it must be written by hand or ink on parchment or it is not a true Mezuzah.  The case has a small opening near the top and on the front of the tube through which can be seen either the word for the ETERNAL ONE, "SHADDAI" — or the Hebrew letter, shen (which also stands for GOD'S NAME which is written on the Scroll no less than ten times) written on the back of the parchment.  The tube is affixed to the upper right-hand doorpost in a slanting position in obedience to the commandment.

 

A pious Jew never enters or leaves the house without reverently placing the fingertips of his right hand on the sacred word, "SHADDAI" and then touching his lips.  He kisses his fingertips after he touches the Mezuzah, reciting: "May GOD guard my going out and my coming in now and forever." [Psalms (Tehillym) 121. 8 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  This prayer connects the Mezuzah to the DIVINE PRESENCE and DIVINE protection.

 

The Mezuzah after 4,000 years has now become the symbol of the Jewish home.  To the Jew it is a reminder of the need for sanctifying the home by means of religious teachings, and of keeping the home unpolluted from all evil.  He is reminded of the blood of the lamb sacrifice, which was struck on the doorposts by his forefathers in obedience to the command of GOD OMNIPOTENT which kept the ancient Israelites from death and destruction in Egypt.

 

Not only are the Jews to write the words of the Law upon their door-posts and gates, but all who believe upon CREATOR GOD are commanded, in a spiritual sense, to do likewise.  For the HOLY ONE is stressing by this statute the importance of His Word and the necessity of this observance in the life of the believer.  However, by the blessing of the NEW COVENANT, the Law of the SUPREME ETERNAL ONE is written, not upon objects of wood and stone or upon a piece of parchment, but upon the fleshly tables of the heart!

 

The LORD OF GLORY commands that we "take to heart these instructions." [Deuteronomy (Devarim) 6. 6 Tanakh, Torah]   It is more important to have the WORD OF GOD fixed in the heart than to have it wrapped up in a small box and nailed to the door of a house!   The Mezuzah attached to the doorpost of the believer's heart is a reminder to him of the protecting power of GOD'S LAMB, YESHUA ha'MASHIACH, WHO shed HIS blood for all who will apply it to their heart's door in faith.  The LORD JESUS watches our coming in and our going out, our up-rising and our down-sitting.   Thank GOD! always HE is with us.   It is the real PERSON of the MESSIAH YESHUA WHO guards us and leads us by HIS SPIRIT!   Praise HIS HOLY NAME, Amen & Amen!

 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Welcome Shabbat Chukat “statute” [Numbers 19:1-22:1; Judges 11:1-33; Matthew 21:1-17]  Sabbath presence, let us welcome.  Our FATHER in Heaven, in YOUR great love YOU appointed for us a day of rest, that in YOUR PRESENCE we may regain that freedom of the soul which comes through obedience to YOUR commandments. Quickened by YOUR spirit, may we learn how to ennoble the things of earth by sanctifying them to YOUR service. We honor and praise the LORD YESHUA, the BLESSED ONE, WHO separates the sacred from the mundane and gives true Sabbath peace and rest. 

 

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.

David's Heritage
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Never confuse culture with morality.

 

DAVID’S HERITAGE      
"Naomi took the child and held him to her bosom, and became a nurse to him. Also the neighbor women gave him a name, saying "A son is born to Naomi!" They named him Obed; he is the father of Jesse, the father of David." [Ruth (Roos) 4. 16 - 17 Tanakh, Kethuvim]

 

The Book of Ruth is an incredible love story laced with devotion and redemption, a story of a woman who forsakes her pagan heritage and clings to the people of Israel and the GOD OF ISRAEL.  Because of her faithfulness at a time of national faithlessness, the ALMIGHTY ONE rewards her by giving her a new husband (Boaz), a son (Obed, the grandfather of David), and a privileged position being in the lineage of David (her great-grandson, the greatest king of Israel), and the MESSIAH, the KINSMAN-REDEEMER (Hebrew: go’el). 

 

David must have been amazed at the wonderful kindness of the GRACIOUS MASTER that brought Ruth the Moabitess into his ancestry despite the direct and specific command that stipulated that a Moabites should not be brought into the congregation of the LORD, "An Ammonite or Moabite (both of these nations were the offspring of incest), shall not be admitted into the congregation of the LORD; none of his descendants, even to the tenth generation shall enter the congregation of the LORD." [Deuteronomy (Davarim) 23. 3 Tanakh, Torah]  Yet here we see even the ancestry of YESHUA, the SON OF THE LIVING GOD, preparing to take on a curse from HIS earthly roots. 

 

Another astonishing relative in David’s background was  Nahshon.  According to Jacob, Nahshon would have been a member from the tribe of Judah who would be ruler over the children of Israel. [Genesis/Berepooh 49. 9 - 12]  Nahshon (the grandfather of Boaz, Ruth’s husband) had been the chief captain of the tribe of Judah at the time Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt.  "With you shall be a man from each tribe, each one the head of his father's house...These are the names of the men who shall assist you...from the tribe of Judah (praised, celebrated), Nahshon (translates: enchanter) son of Amminadab (my kinsman is noble)." [Numbers (Midbar) 1. 4, 5, 7 Tanakh, Torah]  Obviously, Nahshon failed to stand with Joshua and Caleb and was one of many who died in the wilderness because he rejected GOD’S promises.  Of the elders, only Caleb and Joshua were allowed to enter the Promised Land because they believed GOD. [Numbers/Midbar 14. 21 - 24]   Nevertheless, Nahshon was important in David’s lineage.

 

Like each of us, we have been brought into the family of the GREAT KING, not because of our own merits, but by HIS incredibly remarkable grace!  We are born anew "not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of GOD." [John 1. 13]  "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to HIS mercy HE saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the HOLY SPIRIT." [Titus 3. 5 - 6] 

 

How amazing, when one is born-again they shall not only see but be an eternal part of the KINGDOM OF GOD.  HalleluYAH!  What a blessed difference our LORD & SAVIOR makes in our lives.

 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
If we are to prevail, we must unite under the banner of the Jewish MESSIAH — celebrating our unique heritage, our unique message, and our unique ability to bring inspiration to the world.  Let us rejoice in ALMIGHTY GOD’S plan in which the threats and schemes of the wicked will ultimately be done away with and the GLORIOUS KINGDOM OF GOD will bring eternal good. 

 

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.

Perfect Sacrifice
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Hard times don't erase GOD'S promises.

PERFECT SACRIFICE      
"For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have assigned it to you to make atonement for your lives upon the Altar; for it is the blood, as life, that effects expiation. For the life of all flesh its blood is its life." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 17. 11, 14 Tanakh, Torah] 

 

The Book of Leviticus is full of types and indirect references to the PERSON and WORK of YESHUA ha'MASHIACH; these Five Offerings are:
Burnt Offering — typifies MESSIAH'S total offering in submission to HIS FATHER'S will. [Leviticus/Vayikra 1. 1 - 17; 6. 9 - 13; 9. 24]   YESHUA ha'MASHIACH is our PASSOVER.  "And walk in love, as CHRIST also has loved us and given HIMSELF for us, an offering and a sacrifice to GOD for a sweet-smelling aroma." [Ephesians 5. 2]  

 

Grain (Meal) Offering — typifies MESSIAH'S sinless service.  JESUS, the GRAIN OF WHEAT, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain." [John 12. 24] 

 

Peace Offering — is a type of the fellowship believers have with OMNIPOTENT GOD through the work of the cross. [Leviticus/Vayikra 3. 1 - 17; 7. 11 - 21]  The LORD JESUS is our PEACE OFFERING,  "For HE HIMSELF is our peace, WHO has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation." [Ephesians 2. 14] 

 

Sin Offering — typifies the ANOINTED ONE as our GUILT-BEARER. [Leviticus/Vayikra 4. 1 - 35; 6. 24 - 30]  The LORD YESHUA was our SIN OFFERING, "For HE made HIM WHO knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of GOD in HIM." [2 Corinthians 5. 21]  

 

Trespass Offering — typifies CHRIST'S payment for the damage of sin. [Leviticus/Vayikra 5. 1 - 19; 6. 7; 7. 1 - 10]  YESHUA ha'MASHIACH is our TRESPASS OFFERING: "And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, HE has made alive together with HIM, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And HE has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross." [Colossians 2. 13 - 14] 

 

Only the best, cleanest, and finest of the Israelites' bullocks, sheep, goats, and fowl were brought according to the Law.  These were brought to the Copper Altar of Sacrifice, tied to the horns of the altar, then slain and then burned upon the Altar. 

 

What is the meaning the MASTER OF MERCY & TRUTH was trying to convey to the children of Israel?  What significance does it have for us today?  Here we see ALMIGHTY GOD'S goodness and severity, HIS love and wrath, HIS righteousness and peace.  It is here that the heart of man and the heart of LOVING CREATOR are revealed and atonement for sin is made. 

 

At this Altar, the innocent bore the judgment of the guilty, and HOLY GOD was reconciled with the sinner who killed and shed the blood of the sacrifice.  This slaughter place pictures the Cross of Calvary — a vessel on earth which is the only way of entrance into GOD'S PRESENCE.  It depicts the Cross which is easily accessible to the world, but towers over all the wrecks of time, the cross upon which the PRINCE OF GLORY died, where HE was bound with the cords of love for lost humanity.  This Copper Altar foreshadows the Cross, universal in its mercy as well as its judgment. . . the horns pointing GOD-ward and man-ward, inviting "whosoever will" to come! 

 

The sacrifices brought to that Altar — the innocent doves and pigeons with their heads wrung off, their feathers plucked from their bodies, their blood wrung at the side of the altar; the bullocks cut to pieces and burned; the lambs and goats sacrificed — all of these tell of the LORD YESHUA ha'MASHIACH:  HE is the INNOCENT DOVE of the heavens WHO came to earth, WHOSE head was crowned with thorns, WHOSE beard was plucked from HIS cheeks. 

 

YESHUA is the OX of GOD WHO was bruised and cut to pieces by the whip of the Roman soldiers, WHOSE blood was shed, WHO was burned with the fire of judgment from HIGH & LOFTY ONE upon HIM for the sins of the whole world. 

 

HE is the LAMB of GOD, WHOSE heart melted within HIM like wax, WHO opened not HIS mouth in HIS OWN defense, WHO was led to the slaughter, and HIS face was marred more than any other man's. 

 

Day-by-day, year-by-year, continually the offerings were being made upon the Altar until the time of the GREAT SACRIFICE upon the Altar of Calvary.  From the Cross on Golgotha we hear the words from the lips of our wonderful LORD MESSIAH YESHUA, the only SAVIOR & BLESSED REDEEMER, "IT IS FINISHED!" The types, the offerings of the OLD COVENANT were now done away, fulfilled in the MESSIAH OF ISRAEL, the WONDERFUL SAVIOR of the world!  

 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
 Blessed, praised and glorified, exalted, extolled and honored, magnified and lauded be the NAME of the HOLY ONE , blessed be HE; though HE be high above all the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations, which are uttered in the world.  Let the NAME of the ALMIGHTY be blessed from this time forth and for evermore. Amen 

 

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.

God's Desired Dwelling
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Safety is not found in the absence of danger, but in the presence of the LORD GOD MOST HIGH. 

 

GOD'S DESIRED DWELLING      
"Let them make ME a Sanctuary that I may dwell among them." [Exodus (Shemot) 25. 8 Tanakh, Torah] 

 

This is the hearts cry of GOD, the POSSESSOR of heaven and earth, and it has been so all through the years.   From the very beginning in the Garden of Eden, the OMNIPOTENT MASTER CREATOR came down and walked with Adam in the cool of the day.  The HOLY & TRUE ONE wanted to fellowship with this one whom HE had created in HIS OWN image and likeness.   The ALMIGHTY cried out at Mount Horeb, and ever does cry out, "Oh, that I might dwell in and have unbroken fellowship with MY people!" 

 

GOD ETERNAL wants to dwell "withIN, the center, between, in the midst" of HIS people.  This reality is brought out in HOLY SCRIPTURE:  "And I will dwell AMONG the Israelites, and I will be their GOD." [Exodus (Shemot) 29. 45 Tanakh, Torah]  "And I will establish MY Tabernacle AMONG you...I will be ever present in your midst; I will be your GOD, and you shall be MY people." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 26. 11 - 12 Tanakh, Torah; Revelation 7. 15; 21. 3]   "You are the temple of the LIVING GOD; as GOD has said, I will dwell IN them; and I will be their GOD, and they shall be MY people." [2 Corinthians 6. 16]   The Apostle Paul knew the true significance of Exodus 25:8 and the desire of ALMIGHTY GOD to dwell within the earthly sanctuary, the temple of clay, the body of the believer! 

 

The HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL promised that as the glory of the "SHEKINAH" dwelt in the Tabernacle of the Wilderness after it was completed, so HIS power and glory would dwell in HIS people after they had been redeemed!   They would be HIS dwelling place, HIS Holy Temple, HIS Sanctuary.  This is the wonderful, practical lesson of the Tabernacle in the Wilderness! 

 

These Israelites were the children of the LORD MOST HIGH, but HE wanted to come down and dwell IN them.  The ALMIGHTY, blessed be HE, is everywhere; but HE does not dwell everywhere.  The Apostles of MESSIAH YESHUA were believers.  They had been redeemed, but their bodies were not yet habitations of HOLY GOD, not until the LORD YESHUA sent THE COMFORTER from heaven as HE promised.  The HOLY SPIRIT had been with them, but now would be in them (in the sense of abiding). [John 14. 17]   In the Greek text, the word for sanctuary is "naos" and is used also for the Inner Temple in Jerusalem and of the believer's body. [1 Corinthians 3. 16 – 17]   This is the sanctuary GOD OMNIPOTENT wants for HIS dwelling. . . forever! 

 

You and I who are the children of GOD MOST HIGH have been delivered out of Egypt's bondage.  Yet, it is the desire of the AUTHOR & MASTER DESIGNER that HE come down and dwell within us.  In this temple, HE wants to abide, HE wants to move, HE wants to walk and have HIS being.   The MIGHTY ONE wants HIS "home" to be in this "tent of flesh." The Tabernacle is not only a type of the LORD YESHUA ha'MASHIACH, but is a picture of HIS people, which is intended by the HOLY ONE to be HIS dwelling place.  We are to be the House of GOD through the IN-DWELLING SPIRIT. [Ephesians 2. 22]

 

True, we already have been redeemed, but have we built a place for the LORD?  Does HE delight to live in this house of clay? Does HE feel at home in this tent of earth?  Does HE control and permeate every atom of our being?  Let us open the door of our heart, dear saints of GOD and permit the LORD OF GLORY entrance to fulfill HIS desire!!!   Let us build HIM a sanctuary that HE might dwell withIN!

 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel! 
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Because GOD'S comfort delights and refreshes my soul, may I so labor in the MASTER'S service that my life will become a hymn of praise to HIM. 
Create in us a clean heart and renew a right spirit within us that we may face our daily duty with a firm courage and a tranquil mind. May we learn to know that in loving and serving our fellowmen, we are loving and serving GOD MOST HIGH. 

 

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.

Patriarchs
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Love is seen in commitment...what joy it is to love and demonstrate that love by our commitment to the MASTER.

 

PATRIARCHS       
"And HE (GOD) gave him (Abraham) the Covenant of Circumcision; and so Abraham begot Isaac and circumcised him the eighth day; and Isaac begot Jacob; and Jacob begot the twelve patriarchs." [Mark 4. 38]

 

The word patriarchs means first father or head of a family.  Thus, the patriarchs, fathered by Jacob, were heads of the twelve tribes of Israel.  The patriarchs in the book of Genesis are types of all fathers.  Adam was the patriarch of the human family and through his sin, death came into the world.  Death was first mentioned when GOD OMNIPOTENT warned Adam that he would die if he ate of the forbidden fruit. [Genesis/Berepooh 2. 17]

 

Adam is the dying father, thus Noah would be considered as the righteous father; for "Noah found favor (grace, just, righteous) in the eyes of the LORD""Noah was a righteous man; he was blameless in his age; Noah walked with GOD." [Genesis (Bereshith) 6. 8 – 9 Tanakh, Torah]

 

Abraham is the Believing Father "because he put his trust and belief in the LORD, it was reckoned to him for righteousness." [Genesis (Bereshith) 15. 5 Tanakh, Torah]  This is the first mention of believing (Hebrew: ‘aman — trusty, verified, long continuance, established).  Abraham is a type of all who are justified by faith.  The first mention of sowing (Hebrew: zara‘ — prosperity, disseminate, conceive seed) is with Isaac, the sowing father"Isaac sowed in that land and reaped a hundredfold the same year. The LORD blessed him." [Genesis (Bereshith) 26. 12 Tanakh, Torah; compare with Matthew 13. 23 — "He who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces; some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty."]

 

Jacob’s name was changed to Israel, as SCRIPTURE records, because "you have struggled with GOD and men and have prevailed." [Genesis (Bereshith) 32. 28 Tanakh, Torah] A single Hebrew word sarah (pronounced: saw’raw) used here only, is translated prevail, have power as a prince.  Jacob, able to prevail in prayer with the ANGEL OF THE LORD, is the Powerful, Praying Father.

 

These are the honored patriarchs "from whom, according to the flesh MESSIAH YESHUA came, WHO is over all, the ETERNALLY BLESSED GOD. Amen!" [Romans 9. 5]  O that all fathers today were believing, righteous, praying men having a powerful relationship with the ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER, the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL.  And, that commitment of love gives inexpressible, glorious joy even in trials.

 

In ancient days, all men, whether or not they had their own children, had a responsibility to those who came after them-to be there for them so they would know the HEAVENLY FATHER. Each man has that same responsibility today. So, for those who come after us, may we be able to say..."We will not hide from the children what we have heard and known; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, HIS might, and the wonders HE performed." [Psalms/Tehillym 78. 4]

 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
For the TORAH, for the privilege of worship, for the prophets, and for this another day in YOUR presence, for honor and for glory, we thank and bless YOU, O LORD our GREAT GOD! 
 When the invisible hand of our MAGNIFICENTLY  WONDERFUL OMNIPOTENT GOD guides our lives and we are more then blessed, as we live each moment for HIS glory and praise. Be enveloped in HIS riches in peace and harmony as you glorify and praise our MIGHTY KING.
MODEH ANI:  Modeh ani lefanecha Melech chai v’kayom shehechezarta bee neshmati b’chemia rabb emunasecha. — “Thankful am I before YOU, LIVING & ETERNAL KING, that YOU have returned my soul within me with compassion; abundant is YOUR faithfulness.” 

 

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
