‘We are reminded that spiritual warfare is sometimes expressed on the battlefields of this world. That warfare is likely to become increasingly intense as we progress into the end times.’
It is nothing wonderful to be reminded about our own weaknesses. The wonder of it all is Jesus holding onto us in comfort. We all fall down He always raises us back up.
Many questions are not fully understood. There are others I look at differently than before. Some time ago, while praying about the Temple, I realized something that is written.
Hanukkah: Prophetic Fulfillment
Hanukkah – light, courage, and faith.
Hanukkah – the true worship of God in Yerushalayim
Believers endanger their belief in an idolatry fashion of the Temple, when in fact that is what they are.
Or don’t you know that your body is a Temple for the Ruach Hakodesh (Holy Spirit) who lives inside you, whom you received from God? The fact is, you don’t belong to yourselves; for you were bought at a price. You are the Temple. I Corinthians 6:19-20
I have read something unknown to me before.
God revealed Himself to Moshe (Moses) in the four letters
Yud-Heh-Vah-Heh. No one was to speak His name except a high priest. Adonai is instead the Name whenever the Torah is read.
Adonai can include Yeshua and or the Holy Spirit.
Seems something like, God the Father/Adonai, God the Son, Messiah, and God the Holy Spirit.
God = Adonai The Trinity
I fail to understand something in my heart.
Where did these translators think the New Testament left the Jews out of the plan of God?
Jesus is a Jew. He is our Resurrected God who was human on earth as a Jew. He was always in the Scripture as the Messiah of the Jews. The chosen Jews were then supposed to teach the world of truths Jesus gave them and taught them to show the world His Power of grace and Love.
Who do we remember the disciples as?
The purpose for the Jew is the whole plan of God to present our Lord and Savior Jesus to the World.
Israel is the servant of God in the whole beginning of His Commandments and sin itself. The first sin was from Adam and Eve, Jews. Then requiring the sacrifice of His one and only Son, the Messiah, Yeshua, Jesus to give us eternal life.
Just as many have forgotten 9/11 in a very short time, so the Jews forgot the Miracles God has given them time and time again. Jesus’ Power is forgotten by all! (Please humble us Lord so we are not blinded.)
Jesus was born of Mary, a Jew from the family of King David as promised and fulfilled.
How can we as believers in Jesus be against one another?
I often wonder if all of us, from the Baptist, to the Lutheran, to the Catholic, to the Church of Christ, to the non-denominational churches, and so on, yes including the Jews and the Messianics; were in one room and Jesus walked in….what would He say?
Would all of us bow down to His Holy Presence or think ourselves higher in our opinions of His Word? We translate what we deem is right, He gave us Holy Spirit did He not? Discernment is applied through Him in us. Where do we go wrong? Like the Pharisees in the Temple? Jesus threw the tables over in perfect distaste of their process.
What would Jesus say to us in the hackling of our salvations? The price He paid for us, that we will never understand the cost of.
Can you hear Him say again?
“Forgive them Father for they know not what they do.”
Have you ever had to pray what Jesus said? I have, and have had to forgive them, to stay close to my Lord Jesus who forgives me.
How long are we here?
What would we do to show our Jesus what our hearts truly believe?
A wisp and we go on to Heaven for eternity.
Jesus, is our spiritual purpose with all men. To share the Gospel of Salvation if we ask with our mouth and speak with our tongue the need for Jesus to wash away our guilt and sin and become our Savior.
Share Him with your children, share Him with your family, share Him with the hungry, share Him with the rich, share Him with our Leaders, share HIM!
