Dear Brothers and Sisters in Messiah, one of our Faith Family has been struck down in violence. As this family were returning home from spending Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles, with a group of their brethren, this wife and mom was shot and killed. Please lift the husband, children, and their fellowship family up in prayer.
Someday, in our Messiah’s reign, we will enjoy Sukkot in Israel and fully AS Israel. What a joy! This fantastic work by Bracha Lavee, Israeli artist, puts color on that future hope.
As we begin to celebrate Sukkot, let us always remember these appointed times are His Feasts, not the Jews’ or anyone else’s. Praise YHWH!
There are hardly words to utter in situations like this. How? Why? Those are questions we may never, on this side of eternity, know the answer to.
The rapid succession of tragic events in the last six weeks has been shocking! It certainly seems like prophetic times are upon us. One thing I fear is that we will develop compassion fatigue and grow numb and uncaring. “Oh, just another tragedy. We have so many these days that I can’t keep up.”
Abba YHWH, may You be glorified forever and ever. Please fill us with Your compassion and love. Help us to have hearts of flesh not of stone. Comfort those affected by this tragedy in Las Vegas. Heal those who are injured. Bring renewed faith in You, and forgiveness between people, in our divided nation. Draw people to Yourself in these days. Protect Your people wherever they live and wherever they go. Show us how to shine Your light to a dark and dying world. We trust that You hear and answer prayer. We trust that Your answer and timing are always perfect. We ask these things in the name above all names, Yeshua our Messiah…Amen!
There’s plenty of talk and opinion about the correct spelling and pronunciation of our Elohim’s name. His people often use titles to refer to Him, such as Elohim, Adonai, Creator and Sustainer, and the Most High God, as opposed to a personal name. However, He does have a name.
One day, He will make sure we know how to say His name. Until then, let us not argue about it, but rather rejoice that He is causing more people to remember Him and seek after His truth!
