Happy Hanukkah from the Maccabeats!
Some weeks start off less than stellar, don’t they? Mine didn’t start well. But regardless…our Adonai is always good and faithful! Have a blessed week, dear brothers and sisters.
Throughout Shabbat in Israel, riots took place. Under Christmas decorations hanging on street poles in Messiah’s birthplace, Palestinians threw rocks at Israeli police and lit tires and pallets on fire. Dear Hubby’s commentary rang true in its irony…”Merry Christmas from Bethlehem”. Indeed.
Pray for shalom in Yerushalayim; may those who love you prosper. May shalom be within your ramparts, prosperity in your palaces. ~~ Psalm 122: 6-7
Pray for the brethren around the world. They are in the midst of great difficulties. Unrest. Violence. Wildfires. Drought. Trust in YHWH and hold on to Him. May He deliver His own from the whirlwind.
It will be known that the hand of Adonai is with his servants; but with his enemies, his fury. For — look! — Adonai will come in fire, and his chariots will be like the whirlwind, to render his anger furiously, his rebuke with blazing fire. For Adonai will judge all humanity with fire and with the sword, and those slain by Adonai will be many. ~~ Isaiah 66: 14b-16
It defies logic, but it certainly is Biblical. Who would question that Washington DC is the capital of America? Who would question the capital of any nation of the world? Ah…but Jerusalem is unique, isn’t it? The burdensome stone…
May YHWH’s people be protected in these days.
Fill your cup and enjoy, dear brethren!
