He covers me there with His Hand . . .

For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls:  for it is the blood that makes an atonement for the soul.
Leviticus (Vayikra) 17:11
We’ve talked about how the Hebrew word for ‘gospel’ or ‘good news’ is the word ‘basar’( bet shin resh) and ‘basar’ is also the word for ‘flesh’ . . . and the connection ? The ‘good news’ is that Messiah has come in the flesh to redeem our souls from the sins of the flesh.
“ . . . for the wages of sin is death, but the gift of GOD is eternal life through Messiah Yeshua . . .”  Romans 6:23
 . . .the life of the flesh is in the blood . . .
This is a two-fold statement. It is obviously true in the physical . . . but also in another way in the spiritual. For not only is the ‘life of the flesh’
-basar – in the blood physically, but also the ‘life of the gospel’ – basar –
is in the Blood.
For without the shedding of blood, there can be no remission of sin. 
Hebrews 9:22
. . . but not just any ‘blood’ . . .
but with His own Blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption.  Heb 9:12
 
 Lev. 23 : 27 ” . . . the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a special called assembly for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the LORD.
28 “And you shall do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the LORD your God.
31 “You shall do no manner of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
32 “It shall be to you a sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict your souls; on the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you shall celebrate your sabbath.”
Why ? Because Messiah Yeshua went to the cross for me and HE did not have to  . . .
Can I do any less than what He has asked ?   Blessings –

Clean-up time . . .

There is a children’s song that says “Clean-up, clean-up, everybody clean-up . . .” Well that’s the time that we find ourselves in as we look towards Yom Kippur. It;s ‘clean-up time’ . . . Yeshua spoke of those that cleaned the outside of the cup and left the inside dirty. We tend to focus on the part that is seen, whereas the hidden, inside part is what Abba is concerned with. For HE looks on the heart.
Rhonda made the comment that vertical relationship with our Father has to be ‘right’ before the horizontal relationship with one another can be.

Is there anything ‘clogging’ the pipeline between me and my heavenly Father ? If so, I first need to fix that problem… and humility and repentance and obedience is the ‘plumber of choice’ . . .then and only then can there be the proper relationship with those around me . . .  But WE can’t do the clean-up all on our own . . . and it’s an ongoing process . . . If you have kids, you understand that concept . . .:)

King David prayed this way : 6 Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart.
7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.

This from a man who already had an intimate relationship with Yahweh. But just like any relationship that is worth having, it takes constant attention.  How’s your ‘heavenly pipeline’ ?   Blessings –

. . . without spot or wrinkle . . .

Between Leviticus 23:25 and 23:27 there is a period of 10 days that have come to be known as the ‘ Days of Awe ‘ . . .

We understand to some degree the concept of The Feast of Trumpets ( Yom Teruah ) being  the day of the blast or sounding of the alarm for what is to come. Ten days later is the Day of Atonement, the day of the kippur – the covering of the sins of Israel. It is also the annoucement of the coming of the Great King. There is the picture in these ten days of preparation for those things to come. What does it mean to me as a believer in these days ?

We will deal with this concept in the next few days as we ‘prepare’ for the Day of Atonement and look at this as a time of introspection and self-examination and repentance.

 2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.
 Ephesians 5:27 . . . that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she should be holy and blameless.
Matt 5: 23 “If therefore you are presenting your offering at the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you,
 24 leave your offering there before the altar, and go your way; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and present your offering.
                                “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Until tomorrow, Shalom U’Vrachot B’Messiah Yeshua – Peace & Blessings in Messiah Yeshua –  J & R

Let’s see what happens . . .

This story hit CNN and FOX within the last hour on this date . . . we need to follow this story to see if the 1st amendment rights of these people are upheld . . . and again, this is not about ‘a film’ but about the Muslim brotherhood and fundamentalist islam (a ‘front’ for the seed of Esau and the seed of the serpent) taking advantage of every opportunity to advance their venomous agenda . . .

(CNN) Tuesday 09-18-2012 — Egyptian authorities have charged seven Coptic Christians living in the United States and a Florida pastor with’ insulting Islam and inciting sectarian strife’ ( that’s against the law ? )  for their alleged links to an online video that has enraged much of the Muslim world.

Egypt’s public prosecutor announced the charges Tuesday, the latest development in the deadly backlash against the low-budget, amateurish 14-minute movie trailer produced privately in the United States and posted on YouTube.

The clip from “The Innocence of Muslims” mocks the Muslim Prophet Mohammed as a womanizer, child molester and killer.

“Innocence of Muslims” was an obscure Internet video until September 11, when rioters, seizing on it, breached the U.S. Embassy in Cairo. Protesters also attacked the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, killing U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

The charges — largely symbolic because the accused all live outside Egypt — name alleged filmmaker Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, who is identified by Egyptian officials as Elia Bassili.

Reports that Nakoula is a Coptic Christian have raised concern about a possible backlash against the minority religious group in Egypt, where tensions between Copts and Muslims have risen recently.

Egypt also charged Morris Sadek, who is believed to have posted the clip to YouTube.

The Florida pastor charged is Terry Jones, who was allegedly contacted by the filmmaker to help promote the video. Jones sparked some protests in Muslim countries last year when he staged a trial of Islam at his church.

The others accused were identified as Morcos Aziz; Fikri Zokloma, also known as Esmat Zokloma; Nabil Bissada; Nahed Metwali; and Nader Nicola. Aside from Nakoula, who lives in California, and Jones in Florida, it was not clear where the others live in the United States.

In addition to charges of insulting the Islamic religion, insulting Mohammed and inciting sectarian strife, all eight are charged with harming national unity and spreading false information ( doesn’t that qualify them as politicians ?? ) , according to Adel Saaed, a spokesman for the prosecutor’s office.

Egyptian authorities added the names to their airport watch list.

Prosecutors said they will ask the international police agency, Interpol, to add the names to its wanted lists. U.S. authorities would also be contacted, according to prosecutors.

CAN YOU SPELL . . .

IMPEACHMENT ??  IT’S NOT ABOUT A FILM . . . IT’S ABOUT ISLAM’S HATRED FOR THE ‘GREAT SATAN’ AND USING ANY OPPORTUNITY AS AN EXCUSE TO VENT THEIR ANTI-AMERICAN VENOM  . . .

IF WE HAVE TO BUY OUR ‘FRIENDSHIP’ WITH THESE PEOPLE, HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH ? AT WHAT COST ? AND WE TURN OUR BACK ON OUR TRUE ALLY IN THE REGION – ISRAEL . . . AND THE LORD GOD OF ABRAHAM WILL NOT FORGET TO REPAY THOSE WHO IGNORE THE PLACE WHERE HE CHOSE TO PUT HIS NAME FOREVER . . .

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will lobby lawmakers this week on the need to keep billions of dollars in aid flowing to Egypt and other countries caught up in a spasm of violent anti-American protests across the Muslim world.

The State Department said Clinton intended to meet with Congress later this week to discuss the protests, which saw U.S. diplomatic missions attacked and the U.S. ambassador to Libya killed amid fury over a film produced in the United States that many saw as an insult to Islam.

Republican lawmakers are calling for an investigation into the attacks amid suspicions in Republican circles that the Democratic administration is trying to tamp down inquiries about the events as the November 6 presidential election looms.

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who chairs the House Foreign Affairs Committee, had hoped to hold a public hearing on Egypt this week. She reluctantly called it off after the Obama administration refused to send any witnesses and instead offered a private briefing for lawmakers, a congressional aide said.

TENSION ESCALATES IN SINAI

DEBKAfile Report…September 16, 2012
and the Edge Report
{breaking}

“Huge blackout over news coverage of the
Islam Terror attacks on MFO bases in Sinai
with peacekeepers surrounded..”

“Terror groups with human shields, many
which are children & women, attacked the
Sinai bases..”

“MFO bases surrounded and U.S. forces are
still cornered even with aircraft, fear of
being shot down with anti-air missiles on
takeoff from bases..”

The Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) is an international peacekeeping force overseeing the terms of the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel.

Egypt has repeatedly violated the existing treaties with Israel since the Muslim Brotherhood coming to power  ( read Isaiah 19 ) and has made the public statement that all agreements with Israel must be ‘re-evaluated’ . . . that’s ‘double-speak’ for ‘done away with’  . . .

Where’s the outcry ?

A few years back an art promotion group displayed a christian cross in a jar of urine. If my memory serves me correctly, no christians went out and burned buildings or shot and killed anyone. I watched a movie the other night that portrayed a ‘christian lady’ as a bigoted, deceptive, lying cheat in the midst of a muslim society.. And yet I did not set any fires, tear down any flags, storm any buildings or cause harm to anyone.

And yet a movie plot comes out that portrays the so-called prophet of islam in a negative light and compounds are stormed, flags torn down and sovereignties  threatened, buildings burned and people killed.

When are we going to understand that the battle between Jacob and Esau, the seed of the serpent and the seed of the woman, the battle between dark and light is alive and well and playing out right before our very eyes literally on a daily basis. And the president has time for Morsi – the head the muslim brotherhood in the Egypt – but does NOT have time for one of our staunchest allies – Israel.
