A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
If one would only discipline themselves to be still and silent, they would make room for the DIVINE PRESENCE to enter and hear HIS voice. Like the Prophet Elijah discovered, GOD is often found in the "Still small voice." [1 Kings/Melakhim Alef 19:12] In the silence, you can come to know the ALMIGHTY ONE. . ."be still and know that I am GOD." [Psalms/Tehillym 46:11]
"O let YOUR dead revive! Together with MY dead body they shall arise! Awake and shout for joy, you who dwell in the dust! — For your dew is like the dew of fresh growth; you make the land of the shades come to life." [Isaiah (Yeshayah) 26. 19 Tanakh, Nevi’im]
Although the cultic doctrine of the Sadducees, at the time of MESSIAH YESHUA, denied a bodily resurrection [Matthew 22. 23], the Israelites of the OLD COVENANT knew different. For the promise has always been known to the people of GOD MOST HIGH.
Long before Isaiah’s time the Prophet Job claimed, "I know that my VINDICATOR lives. In the end hE will testify on earth — this, after my skin has been destroyed. But I will behold GOD in my flesh, I myself, not another, will see hIM." [Job (Iyob) 19. 25 – 27 Tanakh, Kethuvim] And Ezekiel tells of the valley of the dry bones that the LORD caused to come together, made breath enter, were made to breathe, attach tendons to, make flesh come upon, covered with skin, and caused them to live. [Ezekiel/Yehezke-El 37. 1 - 14]
Daniel records: "Many of those that sleep in the dust of the earth will awake, some to eternal life, others to reproach, shame and everlasting abhorrence. Those who are wise will be radiant like the bright expanse of sky, and those who lead the many to righteousness will be like the stars forever and ever." [Daniel (Danyel) 12. 2 – 3 Tanakh, Kethuvim] Such promises were not referring to some uncertain or vague immortality of the soul, as taught in pagan and cultic religions, but to the literal resurrection of the body!
The LOVING MASTER DESIGNER must first become MAN, die for the sins of the world and defeat death by HIS OWN BODILY resurrection. This was the message in the OLD COVENANT that believers would be raised "together with mY dead body." When "the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after HIS resurrection, they went into the Holy City and appeared to many" [Matthew 27. 52 - 53], this was literally fulfilled.
Then, when YESHUA, the PRINCE OF PEACE ascended to heaven, HE led those who had been in captivity in the grave with HIM into heaven. All who have trusted the LORD JESUS will likewise be raised from the dead when HE comes again. YESHUA ha’MASHIACH, the EVERLASTING KING OF GLORY, has defeated death and promised, "Because I live, you will live also." [John 14. 19] HalleluYAH!
Sha’alu (Pray) for the shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
HalleluYAH to the VICTORIOUS SAVIOUR, YESHUA! HE IS RISEN & IS ALIVE FOREVERMORE! Not the grave nor any other power on earth could hold HIM, LORD OF THE SABBATH, the PRINCE OF PEACE, the KING OF GLORY!
May we live as willingly for HIM as HE joyously laid down HIS life for us! O the love of JESUS — truly there is light & joy, gladness & honour for the people of GOD, our GOD reigns victoriously! Praise HIS dear name forever.
With the conclusion of Sabbath, comes the Dawn of the New Day for our LORD is alive and reigning forevermore! HalleluYAH to the KING!
Omer Day 4 / Pesach Day 5 (Festival of Passover/Unleavened Bread)
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.
