Joyful in His House of Prayer

Here is what Adonai says: “Observe justice, do what is right, for my salvation is close to coming, my righteousness to being revealed.”  Happy is the person who does this, anyone who grasps it firmly, who keeps Shabbat and does not profane it, and keeps himself from doing any evil.

A foreigner joining Adonai should not say, Adonai will separate me from his people”; likewise the eunuch should not say, “I am only a dried-up tree.”

For here is what Adonai says:“As for the eunuchs who keep my Shabbats, who choose what pleases me and hold fast to my covenant: in my house, within my walls, I will give them power and a name greater than sons and daughters; I will give him an everlasting name that will not be cut off.

“And the foreigners who join themselves to Adonai to serve him, to love the name of Adonai, and to be his workers, all who keep Shabbat and do not profane it, and hold fast to my covenant, I will bring them to my holy mountain and make them joyful in my house of prayer; their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house will be called a house of prayer for all peoples.”  Adonai Elohim says, he who gathers Isra’el’s exiles: “There are yet others I will gather, besides those gathered already.”  ~~Isaiah 56: 1-8



Be a Dirt Hugger!

Today is National Ag Day – a good day to be a dirt hugger!

You know, regardless of how technologically advanced society becomes, we still have to eat.  While there have been and continue to be attempts to manufacture fake food in laboratories, there will never be a viable replacement for what our Creator put in place – plant and livestock based foods.  So, avoid plastic pseudo-foods, play in the dirt, and – if you can find one, thank a farmer or rancher for supplying the fresh foods on your dinner table.

Biblical New Year

With this new moon, Rosh Chodesh, we stepped into a new Biblical year.  It’s the new moon immediately preceding Passover.

Adonai spoke to Moshe and Aharon in the land of Egypt; he said, “You are to begin your calendar with this month; it will be the first month of the year for you.” ~~ Exodus 12: 1-2

So as you prepare for this Feast, remember the fresh beginnings and opportunities that a new year symbolizes.  May it be a blessed one for each of you!

Sabbath Longing

One of my deep longings and prayers is that YHWH will bless Dear Hubby and I with being able to see His land with our fleshly eyes one of these days.  This graphic stirs my heart toward that goal.

Have a blessed Sabbath, dear brothers and sisters in Messiah!
