DAVID and GOLIATH

April 16, 2020

First Samuel 17 First Corinthians 6

First Samuel 17 is the whole panoramic movie script of David & Goliath in Technicolor — WOW! The Six Day War, in 1967, and the Yom Kippur War, in 1973, were supernatural; but, young David against G-I-A-N-T Goliath is H-U-G-E-r!!! :o))) Slings are POWERFUL weapons! In the mid 1970s, I learned how to use a sling and became quite accurate — and on one occasion — embedded a jagged iron ball in a telephone pole. David’s staff sling was much more powerful and (if my sling stuck that ball in a wooden pole) David was no-doubt able to embed a smooth stone in Goliath’s forehead! NO-DOUBT! see:


My sling is 24” long and I use the figure 8 technique:



How to make the ultimate staff:


It is my understanding is that David used the Staff Sling:


Kind of redneck messy :o/ but, this is how it works :o)


Did David merely fly-off-the-handle or did David first pass righteous judgment? Goliath cursed David by his gods:

1 Samuel 17:43 And the Philistine [Goliath] said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves [a staff sling]? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods [was Dagon, the fish god, Goliath’s god? Did Goliath say, “Dagon it!”? see Judges 16:23].

Judges 16:23 Then the lords of the Philistines gathered them together for to offer a great sacrifice unto Dagon their god, …

At what point do we, of the 21st century, pass judgment? Our Apostle Paul is speaking:

1 Corinthians 6:1-3 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints? Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

If we are going to be as accurate as David, maybe we autta start practicing NOW!

YeHoVaH IS adding HIS blessing to the reading AND obeying of HIS entire Holy Bible. AMEN!

WHAT’S THIS BLEATING I HEAR?

April 14, 2020

First Samuel 15 First Corinthians 4+

1 Samuel 15:13 And Samuel came to Saul: and Saul said unto him, Blessed be thou of YHVH: I have performed the commandment of YHVH [NOT! Saul is lying! He was commanded to purge ALL the sheep and cattle (GMO?)].

1 Samuel 15:14 And Samuel said, What meaneth then this bleating of the sheep in mine ears, and the lowing of the oxen which I hear?

King Saul was instructed VERY SPECIFICALLY what to do, by YHVH! And yet, Saul chose to do things his own way and this is where the fertilizer hits the ventilator! King Saul answers Prophet Samuel with this lame excuse:

1 Samuel 15:15 And Saul said, They [they”? Who is the king here?? Passing the buck only compounds Saul’s problem! Never the less, the KING said, “they] have brought them from the Amalekites: for the people spared the best of the sheep and of the oxen, to sacrifice unto YeHoVaH thy ELohim [thy ELohim”? Is not YeHoVaH Saul’s ELohim? Who is Saul actually going to sacrifice to?? Hold this thought as Saul tries to cover his *## (failure) by saying]; and the rest we have utterly destroyed.

For the play-by-play details, it is best to read this chapter for one’s self; however:

1 Samuel 15:35 And Samuel came no more to see Saul until the day of his [Saul’s] death: nevertheless Samuel mourned for Saul: and YHVH repented that HE had made Saul king over Israel.

The day of [Saul’s] death” is the grand finale of Saul’s blasphemy against YeHoVaH! In the proverbial nutshell: Prophet Samuel has since passed away and King Saul violates, not only his own decree; but, Saul violates YHVH”s TORAH by going to a woman with a “familiar spirit” (a forbidden fortune teller) instead of trusting YHVH. BIG MISTAKE! The woman said:

1 Samuel 28:11 Then said the woman, Whom shall I bring up [from the dead] unto thee? And he [Saul] said, Bring me up Samuel.

Samuel did, indeed, awake from the dead and spoke to King Saul, saying:

1 Samuel 28:18 Because thou obeyedst not the voice of YeHoVaH, nor executedst HIS fierce wrath upon Amalek, therefore hath YeHoVaH done this thing unto thee this day.

1 Sa 28:19 Moreover YeHoVaH will also deliver Israel with thee into the hand of the Philistines: and to morrow shalt thou and thy sons be with me [DEAD! Killed in battle!!]: YeHoVaH also shall deliver the host of Israel into the hand of the Philistines.

muel

Contrary to popular belief, YeHoVaH does not change. HE is the same yesterday, today, and forever. As with Saul, there was a “grace” period. Saul was not struck with a bolt of lightening the moment he DEFIED YeHoVaH. So-called ministries that preach disobedience, today, have the same “grace” period; BUT, hang onto your keebs! There is NO free lunch!!

Quickly, shifting gears, YeHoVaH said VERY CLEARLY that homosexuality is an abomination to the Biblical GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; and yet we read in the following article:


Trump administration launches global effort to end criminalization of homosexuality

BERLIN — The Trump administration is launching a global campaign to end the criminalization of homosexuality in dozens of nations where it's still illegal to be gay, U.S. officials tell NBC News, a bid aimed in part at denouncing Iran over its human rights record.


And:


Netanyahu to Jerusalem Pride Parade: LGBT Community Is Inseparable Part of Israeli Society


Prime minister sends message of equality, tolerance in Facebook video address to LGBT community as gay pride parade commences in Jerusalem.


I do not hold a candle to our Prophet Samuel; and yet, as with Samuel, I have to ask:

WHAT’S THIS BLEATING I HEAR?

Men with men, women with women, sons with mothers… RUH ROH… Apostle Paul says:

1 Corinthians 4:1 Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of YeHoVaH.

1 Corinthians 4:2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.

Listen up, Trump and Netanyahu, national leaders, anointed, even as was Saul:

1 Corinthians 5:1 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife.

1 Corinthians 5:2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.

Do ya really think that our nations, TODAY, are not full of abominations???!!!

Do ya really think that YeHoVaH has changed HIS mind and now embraces filth???


There ARE ramifications!

YeHoVaH IS adding HIS blessing to the reading AND OBEYING of HIS entire

Holy Bible. Amen.

BRINGING IN THE SHEAVES

We shall come rejoicing :o)))


April 12, 2020

First Samuel 11 – 12 First Corinthians 1

Shalom aleichem precious Siblings in Yeshua! In my youth, in church, we often sang “Bringing In The Sheaves”; but, I never knew what that meant until I read the entire Holy Bible for myself many times :o)) That reading was and is my springboard which launched me into this, TODAY, a very joyous day!! The more I read both Testaments, together, the more Abba YAH speaks to me personally :o))) HIS precious Children, our precious eternal Siblings Paul, Samuel, Jeremiah, et al are writing in harmony with Conductor ELohim waving the baton. Whatta beautiful symphony of WORDS!!! And… Apostle Paul ends the first chapter of First Corinthians by saying:

1 Corinthians 1:31 That, according as it is written, [written” where?]

He that glorieth, let him glory in YeHoVaH.

Do ya hear the echo? Listen:

Jeremiah 9:24 But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth ME, that I am YeHoVaH which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith YeHoVaH.

This was not done away with at the cross, neither was counting the Omer because Yeshua, 40 days after HE had arisen from the tomb, told HIS Disciples to remain in Jerusalem and 10 days later they were spoken to with flaming tongues of fire and baptized with the Holy Spirit at Pentecost = Shavuot. Let’s follow their examples. Let’s do it by the numbers. Let’s count, as Yeshua and HIS Disciples = Disciplined Ones did and still do:

Counting of the Omer

סְפִירַת הָעֹמֶר

Week 1

שבוע 1

April 12, 2020 Today is the 1st day of the 1st week of seven weeks [to Pentecost, “pente” = 50 days from now = Shavuot]. Today is the 1st day of the counting of fifty days from the day of the waving of the Omer on the morrow after the Sabbath.

12 אפריל 2020 הַיּוֹם יוֹם רִאשׁוֹן‏ לַשָּׁבוּעַ רִאשׁוֹן‏ מִשִׁבְעָה שָׁבֻעוֹת. הַיּוֹם יוֹם אֶחָד‏ מִסְפִירַת חֲמִשִּׁים יוֹם מֵהֲנָפַת הָעֹמֶר מִמָּחֳרַת הַשַּׁבָּת.

Counting the Omer


The symphony of our Heavenly FATHER’s pen-men bursts into a dancy minuet movement, as our Prophet Samuel gives us a burst of sequential ebbs and flows in ABBA’s marriage with Israel. This is a love story extraordinaire! Let’s tune in:

1 Samuel 10:25 Then Samuel told the people the manner of the Kingdom,

and wrote it in a book, and laid it up before YeHoVaH. …

[We have this BOOK, if only we would read it!]

the manner of YeHoVaH’s Kingdom” — this is worth knowing about, right? What, EXACTLY, is “the manner of YeHoVaH’s Kingdom”?

People keep telling me that YeHoVaH divorced HIS Wife Israel and when we read First Samuel chapters 11 and 12, we see a lot of marital spats and making up; but, NO divorce. That just never happened and TO THIS DAY Israel is YeHoVaH’s Wife whom HE is awaiting Her RETURN and this symphony softens into sweet harmony as Samuel says:

1 Samuel 12:24 Only fear YeHoVaH, and serve HIM in TRUTH [TRUTH = TORAH per Psalm 119:142] with all your heart: for consider how great things HE hath done for you. [Please, consider this. Please.]

ABBA was loving-and-forgiving way-back-then and HE still is now. HE never changes. HE only asks us to repent and obey HIM. Trouble is, created time is running out and soon the sheaves will be brought in… as the tares go you-know-where!

As we count the Omer, in 50 days we will celebrate two events: one at Mt Sinai and one at Mt Moriah — at Mt Sinai, the Ten Commandments came down on Tablets of stone and at Mt Moriah the Ten Commandments came down into the Hearts of flesh — both with flaming tongues of fire. Today, as we celebrate the Firstfruits of our Messiah:

YeHoVaH bless you and keep you

YeHoVaH make HIS face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you

YeHoVaH lift up HIS countenance upon you and give you shalom (peace)

B’shem Yeshua ha Mashiyach Nagid Melek Tzadik

(in the Name of Jesus the Christ Prince of Peace KING of Righteousness)

YeHoVaH IS adding HIS blessing to the reading of HIS entire Holy Bible. Amen.

THE CHURCH IN MY HOUSE

Greets you

April 11, 2020

First Samuel 9 – 10 Romans 16

Romans 16:5 Likewise greet the church that is in their house. …

Shabbat shalom with greetings. The tapestry of Scripture is a work of art extraordinaire and so apropos for us amid this time of “social distancing”! As our Apostle Paul is closing this letter, of the book of Romans — the Gentiles to whom he is writing, he mentions the importance of the church in our house/household several times:

Romans 16:5 Likewise greet the church that is in their house. …

Romans 16:10 … . Salute them which are of Aristobulus' household.

Romans 16:11 … . Greet them that be of the household

Right on the heels of reading First Samuel 9 & 10, this morning, about the leadership of a nation that has turned from their/our Living ELohim to other gods — even celebrating fertility goddesses with eggs and rabbits — Apostle Paul is directing our attention back to:

Romans 16:26 But now is made manifest, and by the Scriptures of the prophets [even/especially First Samuel 9 & 10!], according to the Commandment of the everlasting YeHoVaH, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:

And I ponder, (I’m just asking) is our nation’s leader more like Cyrus or tall Saul the fair-haired boy of Kish? As the lime-light beams through the cellulose acetate film and flickers this movie on the back of our minds, what “image” appears (I’m not going to say it, kuz you’d think I am being too crude; and yet, this is by the Scriptures of the prophet):

1 Samuel 9:3 And the asses of Kish Saul's father were lost. And Kish said to Saul his son, Take now one of the servants with thee, and arise, go seek the asses.

Did Saul begin his search by walking and looking on Wall Street? Is that where the Scriptures of the prophets will be found?? WHO is our anointed LEADER???

As we sit in our churches, our households, may we search the Scriptures daily to KNOW if these things are so (Acts 17:11).

After 3 days and 3 nights, Yeshua arose from the dead; and, based on the sighting of the New Moon in Jerusalem and the Aviv barley — this evening may well be the beginning of a miraculous event! Shabbat shalom aleichem!! Greetings from my house to yours :o))

YeHoVaH IS adding HIS blessing to the reading of HIS entire Holy Bible. Amen.
