Healing

Revelation 22:1-2
 
Then the angel showed me a river of the water of life—bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the city’s street. On either side of the river was a tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
 
Lord, Lord let Your Word be fulfilled now when we are in such need in this world of healing. Nations rail against Your people, peoples clash against each other, families cry out for broken members, and my heart though strengthened by Your Shabbat cries for the pain of my friends. Dear God as this measurement of time closes and another begins we need Your healing more than ever. Thank You Adonai for the healing of trusting in Your Son Yeshua and the sacrifice that He made to redeem us all back to You. I ask this all in His holy name, Yeshua ha Masshiach, Jesus the Messiah, amen and amen.

Chanukah

Revelation 15:3-4
They were singing the song of Moshe, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb:
“Great and wonderful are the things you have done,
ADONAI, God of heaven’s armies!
Just and true are your ways,
king of the nations!
ADONAI, who will not fear and glorify your name?
because you alone are holy.
All nations will come and worship before you,
for your righteous deeds have been revealed.”

Praise God in all His glory in this time of rededication.

Harvesting

Revelation 14:14-20

Then I looked, and there before me was a white cloud. Sitting on the cloud was someone like a Son of Man with a gold crown on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. Another angel came out of the Temple and shouted to the one sitting on the cloud, “Start using your sickle to reap, because the time to reap has come—the earth’s harvest is ripe!” The one sitting on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested.
Another angel came out of the Temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle. Then out from the altar went yet another angel, who was in charge of the fire; and he called in a loud voice to the one with the sharp sickle, “Use your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of grapes from the earth’s vine, because they are ripe!” The angel swung his sickle down onto the earth, gathered the earth’s grapes and threw them into the great winepress of God’s fury. The winepress was trodden outside the city, and blood flowed from the winepress as high as the horses’ bridles for two hundred miles!

It is by our fruit, how we have treated our fellow man and trusted in the sacrifice of Yeshua and Adonai that we will be harvested into eternal life. The first fruits into heaven’s storehouse or the second gathering into the winepress of destruction.

The Saints

Revelation 8:9-10, 14-15

After this, I looked; and there before me was a huge crowd, too large for anyone to count, from every nation, tribe, people and language. They were standing in front of the throne and in front of the Lamb, dressed in white robes and holding palm branches in their hands; and they shouted,
“Victory to our God,
who sits on the throne,
and to the Lamb!”

“Sir,” I answered, “you know.” Then he told me, “These are the people who have come out of the Great Persecution. They have washed their robes and made them white with the blood of the Lamb. That is why they are before God’s throne.
“Day and night they serve him in his Temple;
and the One who sits on the throne
will put his Sh’khinah upon them.

In Revelation the Nation of Israel is numbered at 144,000, yet all believers from all the nations are allowed to worship and serve Adonai in the temple. This is contrary to those false religions that would limit the number of people in Heaven, trust in Yeshua’s sacrifice and God is all that is required.

Rebuke

Revelation 3:19

Those whom I love, I rebuke and discipline. Therefore, be zealous and repent.

Rebuke and discipline are not bad things, though we might be uncomfortable in the event. Yeshua said we are the branches and He would prune us to bring forth more fruit. Lord help me to understand the pruning so I may be a better witness for You. I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.

Love

1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love. On the contrary, love that has achieved its goal gets rid of fear, because fear has to do with punishment; the person who keeps fearing has not been brought to maturity in regard to love.


I have entered into relationships because I was afraid to be alone. They all have cost me dearly in my life, yet I was blessed by God to enter into two marriages where He was the center of the love we felt for each other, and while both have had their challenges, by keeping focused on God, I would not trade a moment. As John says “There is no fear in love.” Lord let my life be that testimony, I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.

Who

John 19:2-7
 
The soldiers twisted thorn-branches into a crown and placed it on his head, put a purple robe on him, and went up to him, saying over and over, “Hail, ‘king of the Jews’!” and hitting him in the face.
Pilate went outside once more and said to the crowd, “Look, I’m bringing him out to you to get you to understand that I find no case against him.” So Yeshua came out, wearing the thorn-branch crown and the purple robe. Pilate said to them, “Look at the man!” When the head cohanim and the Temple guards saw him they shouted, “Put him to death on the stake! Put him to death on the stake!” Pilate said to them, “You take him out yourselves and put him to death on the stake, because I don’t find any case against him.” The Judeans answered him, “We have a law; according to that law, he ought to be put to death, because he made himself out to be the Son of God.”
 
We as believers must be careful in how we let other people package God. Not understanding the Romans mocked Yeshua, thinking he was only a man. Not understanding the Sanhedrin thought that Yeshua was a threat to their authority. Everyone will be called on his own account to explain who God is and Yeshua’s sacrifice. We cannot let our belief be controlled by anything other than the Word and the leading of the Ruach haKodesh, Holy Spirit.

Peace

John 16:33

These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have shalom. In the world you will have trouble, but take heart! I have overcome the world!”

This is the one big change in my personality since I have come to trust. I no longer sweat the small stuff, the things I used to get wrapped around the axle with to no avail. Yeshua has given me a peace to face each day. Thank You Lord for strengthing me for,the trials and rejoicing with me for the good, Amen.

Obedience

John 12:49-50

For I did not speak on My own, but the Father Himself who sent Me has commanded Me what to say and speak. And I know that His commandment is life everlasting. Therefore what I say, I say just as the Father has told Me.”

This why Yeshua was the perfect sacrifice, complete obedience to the Father. Adonai shape my heart so that I would be so bold to follow You so completely, because by myself I am too weak. I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.
