DAYSPRING FROM DARK SHADOW 
"May darkness and deep gloom reclaim it (the day of Job's birth); may a gloom-darkened cloud lie over it; may what blackens the day terrify it." [Job (Iyob) 3. 5 Tanakh, Kethuvim]
 
After sitting for months in awful misery, Job uttered this doleful, dismal damnation.  Total misery was the principal ingredient of the sad wailing of the confused patriarch as he finally let go and cursed the day he was born. [Job/Iyob 3. 3]  Job had been living a long while in the grim "shadow of death" - but could not die.  This cry of Job contains the first of several reference to "the shadow of death" in HOLY SCRIPTURE.  In the OLD COVENANT there are eighteen such references, of which ten are in the Book of Job.
 
The HOLY ONE HIMSELF asked, "Have the gates of death been disclosed to you? Have you seen the gates of deep darkness or the shadow of death?" [Job (Iyob) 38. 17 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  These are well-spoken expressive questions, for no one in Job's day had ever returned from death.
 
No one has personal knowledge of what really lies beyond those terrifyingly depressing doors.  No one, that is, except the YESHUA ha'MASHIACH.   HE said, "I am HE that lives and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, Amen! And I have the keys of Hades and of Death." [Revelation 1. 18]   When the LORD JESUS conquered death, HE destroyed its sting (not its sorrow).   In confident assurance as was King David, we can say, "Though I walk through a valley of deepest darkness in the shadow of death, I fear no harm, for YOU are with me; YOUR rod and YOUR staff - they comfort me." [Psalms (Tehillym) 23. 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 
 
The last reference in the OLD COVENANT to the dark shadow of death is. . . "Seek the LORD, WHO turns the deep darkness and the shadow of death into dawn; and darkens day into night." [Amos (Amus) 5. 8 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  The last reference in the HOLY SCRIPTURES is when Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist, thanked GOD OMNIPOTENT that "the DAYSPRING from on high has visited us; to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace." [Luke 1. 78 - 79] When we have a personal relationship with the LORD MESSIAH YESHUA, the sting of death is gone. . . and beyond the Veil of Death is seen - the Dawn.
 
Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Praised are YOU, O LORD our GOD, RULER of the world, by whose law the shadows of evening fall and the gates of the morning are opened. Infinite as is YOUR power, so is YOUR love. By YOUR laws and commandments, by statutes and ordinances YOU have led us in the way of righteousness and brought us to the light of truth. Therefore at our lying down and our rising up, let us meditate on YOUR teachings and find in YOUR laws true life and length of days. O that YOUR love may never depart from our hearts. Praised are YOU, O LORD, WHO has revealed YOUR love through MESSIAH YESHUA. 
 "Chag Sameyach!" - a joyous Sukkoth to you and yours. 
 
Praying for the peace of Jerusalem is praying for the return of Messiah Jesus and His Kingdom.

Parallelisms of Jonah
Category: Teaching Topics

 

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
A man's service to ALMIGHTY GOD is sincere when he wants no publicity for it.
 
PARALLELISMS OF JONAH
The Book of Jonah is read during Yom Kippur in order to teach us that the compassion of the ALMIGHTY, TRUE & LIVING GOD extends over all that HE has created.  Jonah was angry with the CREATOR for not destroying Nineveh.  Jonah confused GOD'S hatred of evil in people for GOD'S abhorrence of the evil person.  The mercy and compassion of the OMNIPOTENT ONE for the people of Nineveh is available to us today.  
 
The ETERNAL KING does not think we are beyond hope.  HE does not condemn us without an AVENUE OF REPENTANCE open to all who will receive HIM:  "For GOD so loved the world that HE gave HIS ONLY-BEGOTTEN SON, that whoever believes in HIM shall not perish but have everlasting life. For GOD did not send HIS SON into the world to condemn the world, but that the world, through HIM, might be saved." [John 3. 16 - 17]  The government will be laid on the shoulders of CHRIST JESUS the KING and peace will never end. [Isaiah/Yeshayah 9. 6a, 7b; 22. 22]
 
Jonah is called.  Jonah was in the light; Nineveh in darkness.  Likewise, Israel and the nations. Israel was called to show the light of the LORD to the nations.
Jonah is disobedient.  Israel became apostate and turned merchant.  Israel became a curse to the world as did Jonah to the sailors.
Jonah is in trouble.  It is thus with the Jews, trouble has come upon us and we are tossed about by the sea of nations.
Jonah does not deny GOD or his nationality.  So with the Jews; we still believe in ONE GOD, and confess ourselves as Jews.
Jonah is cast overboard.  So Israel is cast away in part for a time, as at present. 
Sailor’s conversion.  So the Gentiles turned to GOD on the fall of Israel.
Jonah is miraculously preserved.  So is Israel among the nations -- except for a remnant, spiritually dead, yet preserved by the LORD GOD of all flesh.
Jonah was not digested by big fish.   The Jew is not digested by the nations, he is still a Jew.  Assimilation fails!
Jonah is restored.  So will Israel.  "Salvation (our deliverance) is of the LORD. Selah" [Psalms (Tehillym) 68. 20 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 
Jonah is commissioned the second time and he obeyed.   So will Israel!
Nineveh is spared.  So will the world be spared who repent at the preaching of restored Israel.
 
When Israel's eyes are opened to behold their MESSIAH, YESHUA OF NAZARETH, all the world will be glad and rejoice with the "SIMCHAT TORAH (JOY OF THE LAW)."  
 
All in all, the story of Jonah is a grand historical picture of the MESSIAH’S Resurrection and Mission to all nations. Joppa, is the town from where Jonah embarked to avoid preaching to another nation.  This was the very same town the LORD GOD chose some 800 years later to tell Peter to receive men of other nations. [Acts 10] It is also a prophetic picture of YESHUA’S resurrection on the "third day." [Matthew 12. 40]
 
We offer thanks to YOU, our LIVING & ETERNAL KING for YOU have mercifully restored our soul within us, YOUR faithfulness is immeasurable! 
 
Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
 HOLY ETERNAL ONE, give us the kindness to hear with compassion, to offer support, loving comfort and care. Give us the courage to do what is needed, the wisdom to choose what is right and most fair. Give us the vision to see what is possible. Give us the faith that will help pave the way for a present that’s hopeful, a future that’s peaceful - give us the heart to bring joy to each day. Thank YOU, ALMIGHTY GOD for making us a needy people, ever looking to YOU, the AUTHOR & FINISHER of our faith.  Keep us ever mindful to praise, honour and obey YOU, O GOD our MAKER.  May the days following be filled with great joy as we prepare for Sukkot/Feast of Tabernacles. 
 
Praying for the peace of Jerusalem is praying for the return of Messiah Jesus and His Kingdom.

Scapegoat, The Azazel
Category: Teaching Topics

 

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Sometimes forgetting can be a higher form of love than forgiving.
 
SCAPEGOAT, THE AZAZEL
"And he (Aaron) shall take from the congregation of the children of Israel two kids of the goats for a sin offering, and one ram for a burnt offering. Aaron shall offer the bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and make atonement for himself and for his house. He shall take the two he-goats and present them before the LORD at the door of the Tabernacle of the Congregation. Then Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat. And Aaron shall bring the he-goat on which the LORD'S lot fell, and offer him as a sin offering. But the goat on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the LORD, to make atonement over him, and to let him for a scapegoat into the wilderness." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 16. 5 – 10 Tanakh, Torah]
 
The Hebrew word for scapegoat or goat of departure is "azazel" - the word also refers to the evil one or his dwelling.  Literally, the lots were cast so that one goat would go to the LORD and the other (according to Jewish tradition) to the Devil. However, the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL said the goat was to be led away into a solitary land bearing the sins of the people after the High Priest laid his hands on the head of the goat and confessed over it the sins of the people. [Leviticus/Vayikra 16. 20 – 22]  This ceremony was one of GOD’S historical fore-pictures of the “coming atonement” for human sin by the death of MESSIAH YESHUA. YESHUA became sin for us bearing our sins, taking away the punishment that was due us. 
 
On the Day of Atonement under the OLD COVENANT, the High Priest would cast lots on two goats. The lot which fell on one goat would be “slain unto the LORD” – then it’s blood would be carried by the same High Priest into the Holy of Holies and placed upon the Mercy Seat.  The High Priest had already taken the blood of the bullock into the Holiest for himself. When he returned to the people after their atonement – it was the second time he had made his appearance before them! And so it is with the GREATER HIGH PRIEST WHO came once to give HIS OWN blood and then after the FATHER’S acceptance of the Sacrifice when the sins of the people were forgiven, YESHUA ha’MASHIACH would return at the appointed second time! 
 
The goat which was slain unto the LORD and its blood shed, is typical of a new and living way into the PRESENCE OF GOD in the Holy of Holies: "For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the Law, he took the blood of calves and goats, with water, scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book itself and all the people, saying, "This is the blood of the covenant which GOD has commanded you." Then likewise he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry. And according to the Law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission. Therefore it was necessary that the copies of the things in the heavens should be purified with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For MESSIAH has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of GOD for us; not that HE should offer HIMSELF often, as the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year with blood of another — HE then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, HE has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of HIMSELF…And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But this MAN, after HE had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of GOD." [Hebrews 9. 19 – 26; 10. 11, 12]
 
The other lot would fall upon the Azazel or Scapegoat: 
"Aaron shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat, confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them on the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness. And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities to a land not inhabited; and he shall release the goat in the wilderness." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 16. 21 – 22 Tanakh, Torah]
 
This scapegoat would carry the sins of the people far from them; it was a substitute; it was made sin that the people might be excused from the penalty of their sins! And YESHUA ha’MASHIACH was the SCAPEGOAT, for HE was the SUBSTITUTE WHO died outside the city of Jerusalem (“in the wilderness” – Hebrews 13.12) WHO carried our sins from us, WHO was made sin that we might be made the righteousness of GOD in HIM!  JESUS THE CHRIST has done more than cover up our sins, HE has blotted them out!   HE has moved them as far as the east is from the west; HE has cast them behind HIS back to be remembered against us NO MORE! 
 
ALMIGHTY GOD ordained that the BLOOD should be the only way of approaching HIM.  This was shown from the very beginning with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. After they transgressed HIS Law, GOD HIMSELF slew an animal, shedding its blood, made coats of skin and with them covered their nakedness. Their sins were covered through the shedding of blood, by the sacrifice of a substitute.
 
“Cain brought an offering to the LORD from the fruit of the ground; and Abel, for his part, brought the choicest firstlings of his flock…and the LORD had respect to Abel and his offering, but to Cain and his offering HE paid no heed.” [Genesis/Berepooh 4. 3-5]  This looks like the institution of Blood Sacrifice, right at the start, as the condition of man’s acceptance with the RIGHTEOUS & HOLY GOD -- an archaic hint, and the beginning of a long line of pictures and predictions of MESSIAH’S Atoning Death for the sin of mankind. 
 
When the LORD commanded the people of Israel concerning their deliverance from Egypt, HE commanded them to take the firstling of the flock, an innocent lamb without spot or blemish, to shed its blood and place that blood on the doorpost, then said: “When I see the blood I will pas over you!” That first Passover, they had to stay where the blood was, had to stay inside their houses until morning; they had blood protection! 
 
“Much more then, having now been justified by HIS blood, we shall be saved from wrath through HIM.” [Romans 5. 9 – 10]  “Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with HIS OWN blood HE entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, how much more shall the blood of CHRIST, WHO through the ETERNAL SPIRIT offered HIMSELF without spot to GOD, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the LIVING GOD?” [Hebrews 9. 12 - 14]  Only the blood of GOD’S ONLY-BEGOTTEN SON can give life eternal. Not blood flowing in the veins of the man, even the perfect GOD-MAN, but the blood SHED of HIM WHO was with GOD in the creation of all things. Only such blood, has power to purify an unclean soul and give a perfect body at the time of the resurrection so that we may appear unashamed, at last, in HIS presence.
 
Before the foundation of the earth, in the mind of GOD ETERNAL there was set a Day of Atonement for both Jew and Gentile which was fulfilled 2,000 years ago on the Altar of Calvary! We who have accepted GOD’S wondrous salvation can praise the LORD declaring: “MESSIAH YESHUA is my LORD, HE is my REDEMPTION for HE was slain in order that I might be admitted to life everlasting; HIS blood covering my sins.”
 
There is no longer a priest to cast lots, no scapegoats to send into the wilderness, and no blood to be poured on the Mercy Seat. For those who know the LORD MESSIAH YESHUA OF ISRAEL, has finished it all.  Our WONDERFUL SAVIOUR, by the sacrifice of HIMSELF, has inscribed our names in the LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE and we shall never be separated from HIM. No longer is it necessary that a goat or a bullock or even a fowl (a ceremony still performed by many Orthodox Jews over all the world substituting a fowl for a man – called Kapporas Schlagen) shed it’s blood for the remission of sins once every year, for GOD’S LAMB shed HIS blood once and for all, Jew or Gentile who believes in HIM can rejoice that there is a Yom Kippur (Day of Covering) for time and eternity, made possible through the PERFECT KAPPORAH (Sacrifice) WHO is YESHUA (JESUS), the Only Begotten SON OF THE TRUE & LIVING GOD!
 
Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
As we bid farewell to Sabbath may gladness reign and joy increase throughout this Season of the LORD'S Festivals!
 GREAT, MIGHTY & AWESOME GOD , I beg for forgiveness on us this Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.  If I have offended YOU or my fellow-man though it be unintentionally, please forgive me.  Forgive me for my hasty judgments, judging others, expressing anger and not saying “Thank YOU” enough. Thank you for friendship, faithfulness and kindnesses shown every moment of my life. 
 
In turn, forgive those who are against us speaking untruths, scandals and gossip; keep us conscious and quick to forgive others and thank YOU again, LORD for true friends. And, while asking forgiveness, thank YOU for giving us strength to face each day as tribulation comes, for You are our HOPE and our JOY…keep our eyes steadfast on YOU, totally committed through it all. 
 
 Open your mouth in holiness and purity, with song and psalm, bless and praise, glorify and revere, sanctify and ascribe sovereignty to the NAME of the DIVINE KING, the GREAT, MIGHTY & AWESOME ONE. . . holy is HE! Take upon yourself the yoke of the Kingdom of Heaven and give sanction to one another to bless the CREATOR. In tranquil joy of spirit, with pure speech and holy melody exclaim: "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD OF HOSTS, the whole earth is full of HIS glory."
Gmar Chatima Tova!

Yom Kippur
Category: Teaching Topics

 

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
The HOLY BIBLE is an EXTRAORDINARY BOOK, expressing many norms and principles that have maintained their validity throughout thousands of years.  It proclaims a vision of faith for men that is still valid and awaiting realization.
 
YOM KIPPUR
"In the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, from evening to evening, you shall afflict your souls, exercise self-denial; and do no work at all - For on this day atonement shall be made for you to cleanse you of all your sins - It is a SABBATH OF REPENTANCE -- a statute forever." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 16. 29-31; 23. 27, 32 Tanakh, Torah] 
 
Yom Kippur is the day of afflicting your souls. [Leviticus/Vayikra 23. 26 - 32]  Perhaps the most important day of the Jewish Year, this is a day for repentance and forgiveness.  Compare Leviticus to James and learn see for yourself how this "Sabbath of Sabbaths" is meaningful for CHRISTians today.
 
Jews "afflict their soul" on Yom Kippur by "fasting" and "praying."   ALMIGHTY GOD pronounced a terrible decree upon those who did not have a day in which their sins were atoned for.   But GOD OMNIPOTENT, in HIS mercy, has provided the WAY in which everyone can have a Day of Atonement – the ONLY WAY of forgiveness...HIS NAME is "YESHUA."
 
"For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have assigned it to you for making AN ATONEMENT for your lives upon the altar; it is the BLOOD, as life, that effects expiation." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 17. 11 Tanakh, Torah]
 
This is a prophecy of MESSIAH, the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL to come.  HE would be the INNOCENT SUBSTITUTE.  Even as the innocent bulls and goats of the OLD COVENANT ceremonies who "shed their blood" - would die - and by this death the sins of the people would be forgiven.   The OMNISCIENT LORD OF HOSTS gave HIS SON, YESHUA, as THE ATONEMENT for the soul when HIS blood was shed for our sin! 
 
On Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), "Aaron shall take two he-goats and shall place lots upon them; one marked for the LORD and the other marked for Azazel (Scapegoat) ...and Aaron shall bring forward the goat designated by lot for the LORD, which he is to offer as a sin offering." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 16. 8 - 9 Tanakh, Torah]
 
The goat, on which the lot marked for the LORD GOD fell, was slain - its blood carried by the High Priest into the Holy of Holies and placed upon the Mercy Seat.  The High Priest had already taken the blood of a bullock into the Holiest for himself.  When he returned to the people after their atonement -- it was the second time the priest had made his appearance before them!  And so it is with the GREATER HIGH PRIEST WHO came once to give HIS OWN blood.  After the FATHER'S acceptance of the SACRIFICE, when the sins of the people were forgiven, YESHUA ha'MASHIACH will return at the appointed second time!
 
"Aaron shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat and confess over it all the iniquities and transgressions of the Israelites putting them on the head of the goat; and it shall be sent off to the wilderness." [Leviticus (Vayikra) 16. 21 Tanakh, Torah]   This Scapegoat (Hebrew: Azazel) would carry the sins of the people far from them; it was a substitute; it was made sin that the people might be excused from the penalty of their sins!   YESHUA ha'MASHIACH was the SCAPEGOAT, for HE was the SUBSTITUTE WHO died outside the city of Jerusalem. . . (in the wilderness - "outside the gate" - see Hebrews 13.12).  JESUS of NAZARETH was made sin that we might be made the righteousness of GOD in HIM!   HE carried our sins away from us, removing them as far away as the east is from the west.   MESSIAH has done more than "cover up" our sins, HE has blotted them out with HIS precious blood; they are to be remembered against us no more!   "Much more then, having now been justified by HIS blood, we shall be saved from wrath through HIM. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to GOD through the death of HIS SON, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by HIS life." [Romans 5. 9 - 10]
 
Our WONDERFUL SAVIOUR, by the sacrifice of HIMSELF, has inscribed our names in the LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE and we shall never be separated from HIM.   No longer is it necessary that a goat or bullock have its blood shed for the remission of sins once every year, for GOD'S LAMB shed HIS blood ONCE FOR ALL.  Jew or Gentile who believe in HIM can rejoice that there is a Yom Kippur for time and eternity made possible through the PERFECT KAPPORAH (sacrificial covering) this UNIQUE ONE is Yeshua, THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF THE LIVING GOD! 
 
Have you found the blood of atonement? "Behold! The LAMB OF GOD WHO takes away the sin of the world!" [John 1. 29]  Are you trusting in GOD'S SMITTEN LAMB, the SUPREME SACRIFICE? The LORD MESSIAH YESHUA – JESUS - is the only ONE WHO can satisfy your soul!
 
Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Welcome Shabbos Shabbason! According to the TORAH, Yom Kippur is called "Shabbos Shabbason" – a day of total rest...may you be greatly blessed this Awesome Day!
 O LORD our  GRACIOUS & MERCIFUL GOD, YOU have given us in love this Sabbath Day for holiness and rest, and the Day of Atonement for pardon, forgiveness, and atonement that we may, in love, obtain pardon thereon for all our iniquities. Thus, we keep the Sabbath and call it a delight for YOU found pleasure in the seventh day and did make it holy; YOU did call it the Desirable of Days, in remembrance of the creation.
  O KING, pardon and forgive our iniquities and restore YOUR people; and let our eyes behold YOUR return in mercy to Zion.  Please strengthen the bonds of friendship and fellowship among all the inhabitants of our land. Plant virtue in every soul, and may the love of YOUR HOLY NAME sanctify every home and every heart. Praised are YOU, O LORD, GIVER of peace.  We again bless YOU, O LORD, WHOSE NAME is ALL-GOOD, and unto WHOM it is becoming to give thanks!
 
Praying for the peace of Jerusalem is praying for the return of Messiah Jesus and His Kingdom.

Prayer of Atonement
Category: Teaching Topics

 

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . . 
None of us are immune to the deep pain of not being forgiven.
 
PRAYER OF ATONEMENT
"O LORD, open my lips, and my mouth shall declare YOUR praises. YOU are blessed, O LORD our GOD and GOD of our fathers, GOD OF ABRAHAM, GOD OF ISAAC, GOD OF JACOB. YOU are the GREAT, MIGHTY & REVERED GOD, the MOST HIGH GOD, WHO bestows loving kindnesses, and possesses all things, WHO remembers the pious deeds of the patriarchs, and in love will bring the Redeemer to their children’s children for YOUR NAME'S sake. 
 
Remember us unto life, O KING, WHO delights in life, and inscribe us in the BOOK OF LIFE, for YOUR OWN sake, O ETERNAL LIVING ONE. O KING, HELPER, SAVIOUR & PROTECTOR. Blessed are YOU, O LORD, the SHIELD of Abraham. YOU, O LORD, are mighty forever. YOU quicken the dead, YOU alone are mighty to save.
 
YOU, O LORD, sustain the living with loving-kindness, quicken the dead with great mercy, support the falling, heal the sick, loose the bound, and keep YOUR promise to them that sleep in the dust. Who is like YOU, LORD of mighty acts, or who resembles YOU, O KING ETERNAL, WHO kills and quickens, and causes salvation to spring forth?
Who is like YOU, FATHER OF MERCY, WHO in mercy remembers YOUR creatures unto life?  Yes! Faithful are YOU to quicken the dead.  Blessed are YOU, O LORD. YOU are holy and YOUR NAME is holy, and holy beings praise YOU daily. There is none like YOU, INIMITABLE HOLY ONE!  Selah
 
Now, therefore, O LORD our GOD, impose YOUR awe upon all YOUR works, and YOUR dread upon all that YOU have created, that all works may fear YOU and all creatures prostrate themselves before YOU that they may all form a single band to do YOUR will with a perfect heart, even as we know, O LORD our GOD, that dominion belongs to YOU, strength is in YOUR hand, and might in YOUR right hand, and that YOUR NAME is to be feared above all that YOU have created.
 
Give then glory, O ETERNAL ONE, unto YOUR people, praise to them that fear YOU, hope to them that seek YOU, and free speech to them that wait for YOU, joy to YOUR land, gladness to YOUR Holy City, a flourishing horn to David, YOUR servant, and a clear shining light to the SON OF JESSE, YESHUA ha'MASHIACH, YOUR ANOINTED -- speedily and in our days.
 
Then shall the just also see and be glad, and the upright shall exult, and the pious triumphantly rejoice, while iniquity shall close her mouth, and all wickedness shall be wholly consumed like smoke, when YOU make the dominion of arrogance to pass away from the earth.
 
YOU, O LORD, shall reign! YOU alone over all Your works on Mount Zion, the dwelling place of YOUR glory, and in Jerusalem, YOUR Holy City. . . as it is written in YOUR HOLY WORD: "The LORD shall reign forever, your GOD, O Zion, for all generations. Hallelu'YAH." [Psalms (Tehillym) 146. 10 Tanakh, Kethuvim]
 
YOU, O LORD GOD are holy, and dreaded is YOUR NAME and there is no GOD beside YOU, as it is written: "The LORD OF HOSTS is exalted by judgment, the HOLY GOD proved holy by righteousness and retribution." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 5. 16 Tanakh, Kethuvim]   
 
YOU, MASTER, have chosen us from all peoples, YOU have loved us and taken pleasure in us, and have exalted us above all tongues; YOU have sanctified us by YOUR commandments, and brought us near unto YOUR services, O LORD our KING, and have called us by YOUR GREAT & HOLY NAME. Blessed be the GLORIOUS NAME of our LORD GOD OMNIPOTENT! Amen"
 
Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
May this day be a life-changing experience as you consider your latter end and turn to the LIVING GOD of all grace and mercy! Our beloved friends, our prayer is that the ETERNAL GOD OF HEAVEN will hear our prayer and give us a renewed spiritual awakening, increase our love and brotherhood among us and by MESSIAH YESHUA, HIS SON'S atoning blood, and be inscribed for a good and sweet year. May your life be offered up to GOD as a priest would offer up a repentance sacrifice!  Have a long life filled with GOD’S peace, and abundant rich blessings.  
 
KOL NIDRE (All Vows)
 Tomorrow night we will stand in the synagogue and declare our sins, intentional and unintentional and ask the ALMIGHTY to forgive us, pardon us and grant us atonement. 
 At this time of renewal of our collective conscience maybe we should start with loving each other and learn to accept each other, helping them to stand up for YOUR TRUTH; to accept the responsibility of defending the Promised Land of Israel from its many enemies.  Defend us also from our sins of impurity of the lips and foolish speech, of running to do evil, of scoffing, evil speech and arrogant expressions which caused our thoughts to fly to wickedness and dictatorial abuse of power, not only here but throughout the western world. 
 We must learn to measure our words, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy — we should meditate on these things.  Please, LORD GOD OF HOLINESS, give us the patience to await the truth. . . create in us a clean heart and renew a unwavering spirit within; uphold us by YOUR GENEROUS SPIRIT and keep us ever mindful of our obligations to YOU and to others.  We give you our thanks, our praise, and our humble hearts. Amen! 
 
Praying for the peace of Jerusalem is praying for the return of Messiah Jesus and His Kingdom.

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
