A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Your belief needs to be based on reality — so develop an eye for noticing sparks of potential in others…be enthusiastic in telling others about the WONDERFUL GOD OF CREATION and HIS saving grace. 

 

EXTREMELY WELL DONE       
"Descendants shall serve HIM; the LORDS righteousness shall be proclaimed to the generations to come; they shall tell of HIS beneficence to people yet to be born, for HE has finished (fulfilled) this." [Psalms (Tehillym) 22. 31 Tanakh, Kethuvim] 

 

Psalm 22 is called the Psalm of the Cross and this is the last verse that marvelously prophecies, and so graphically describes the sufferings of MESSIAH on the cross. This prophesy was written a thousand years before it was literally fulfilled.  Also the promise was that this great event would be proclaimed in every generation and "they shall bend the knee before HIM." [Psalms (Tehillym) 22. 30 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  Father’s would tell their children from one generation to another declaring the righteousness of the HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL. "Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; HIS greatness cannot be comprehended. One generation shall praise YOUR works to another and declare YOUR mighty acts." [Psalms (Tehillym) 145. 3 – 4 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  It has been wondrously, incredibly, completely fulfilled for almost 2,000 years now and each generation of followers of the BELOVED LORD Y’SHUA have been faithful to teach their children the extraordinarily incredible story of "the sufferings of MESSIAH and the glories that would follow" [1 Peter 1. 11], both the sufferings and the glories are portrayed in the 22nd Psalm. 

 

The final verse stresses the fact that the work has been completed.  The most marvelous aspect of the Gospel Message (Good News) is that the LORD MESSIAH Y’SHUA has accomplished all that was needed to assure eternal salvation to everyone who would "seek the LORD and praise HIM." [Psalms (Tehillym) 22. 27 Tanakh, Kethuvim]  

 

As HE was dying on the cross, the PIERCED ONE cried out — "It is finished!" [John 19. 30], the last illustrious prophecy was fulfilled. Comparable to when, in the beginning, HE expressed that "the heavens and the earth, and the host of them, were finished" [Genesis/Berepooh 2. 1], completing HIS wonderful work of creation.  The LORD Y’SHUA finished HIS work on the cross, satisfying the penalty for our sins and providing the even greater work of redemption.  Nothing remains to be done, indeed, that payment was made-in-full, and it is finished; CHRIST completed for us what we could not do for ourselves. 

 

All we must do now is receive, in thanksgiving, what our LOVING SAVIOR has done for us.  May we be faithful to THE MASTER, and like Paul, be able to say, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the Crown of Righteousness, which the LORD, the RIGHTEOUS JUDGE, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved HIS appearing." [2 Timothy 4. 7 – 8] All to HIM we owe, and I for one, am tremendously grateful and eternally thankful. 

 

 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Mankind has the ability to directly affect their destiny by virtue of their self-chosen actions...FAITH.   As the High Holy Day formula puts it, "Repentance, prayer, and charity override the evil decree." The universe is more vast than our ability to fully comprehend. Don't fear it, rather welcome it as a sign, as the Psalmist King David reminded us, that "The heavens declare the glory of GOD, and the sky above proclaims HIS handiwork." [Psalms 19:1]  Contemplate on GOD’S uniqueness and greatness, HIS splendor is beyond the capacity of our vision; to think we truly see HIS essence with the limited perspective of our eyes is to be blind to the reality of His infinite magnificence.
 LORD our GOD, great, eternal, wonderful in glory, WHO keeps covenant and promises for those that love YOU with their whole heart, WHO is 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 — cleanse 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. And, we thank YOU in the MAGNIFICENT NAME of Y’SHUA, 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. 

 

Happy Memorial Day,  Thank you to all who served in the military keeping this country as free as it is.  God bless you this Memorial Day and always.

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
