WHAT WOULD A FIRST CENTURY C.E. NATSARENE SAY ABOUT THE CORONIVIRUS OF TODAY?

WHAT WOULD A FIRST CENTURY C.E. NATSARENE SAY ABOUT THE CORONIVIRUS OF TODAY?
1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, Who abides under the shadow of the Almighty,
2 He is saying of יהוה, “My refuge and my stronghold, My Elohim, in whom I trust!” [Ps 9:9];
3 For He delivers you from the snare of a trapper, From the destructive pestilence. Ps 124:7; [Job 5:19];
4 He covers you with His feathers, And under His wings you take refuge; His truth is a shield and armour. Ps 57:1; [Matt 23:37]; [Luke 13:34];
5 You are not afraid of the dread by night, Of the arrow that flies by day, Job 5:19-20; Prov 3:25; Song 3:8; [Prov 3:24];
6 Of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Of destruction that ravages at midday.
7 A thousand fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it does not come near you.
8 Only with your eyes you look on, And see the reward of the wrong ones. [Prov 29:16];
9 Because you have made יהוה – My refuge, the Most High – your dwelling place,
10 No evil befalls you, And a plague does not come near your tent;
11 For He commands His messengers concerning you, To guard you in all your ways. Ps 34:7; Matt 4:6; Luke 4:10; [Prov 3:23]; [Prov 4:12];
12 They bear you up in their hands, Lest you dash your foot against a stone. Luke 4:11;
13 You tread upon lion and cobra, Young lion and serpent you trample under foot. Job 5:22-23;
14 “Because he cleaves to Me in love, Therefore I deliver him; I set him on high, Because he has known My Name.
15 “When he calls on Me, I answer him; I am with him in distress; I deliver him and esteem him. [Zech 13:9];
16 “With long life I satisfy him, And show him My deliverance.”
Tehillim (Ps.) 91 TS2009 (emphasis mine)

 

Note:

The Natsarene of the First Century C.E., as described in Acts 24:5 who were also called “The Way”; were the original followers of Y’shua HaMashiyach. They are sometimes mistakenly referred to as “Early Christians”, which they were not. They survived up into the 3rd-4th century C.E. despite all the efforts of both Christianity and Judaism to silence them and are being re-created today in a small but growing minority within a minority of truth seakers who are called to Torah and our Jewish Mashiyach Y’shua. May he come again soon and in our day! Amen?

A SHABBAT PRAYER

Hallelu Yah! He who sits enthroned in the heavens is our Rock and our Salvation. Adon (Master) we choose life this Shabbat as we seek you and your way in the Word of your Torah! Let us go to the Mikvah in the eye of the mind as we seek your righteousness, so that we may arise with hands raised high in praise and thankfulness that we are now cleansed in the Mayim Chayim (Living Water) and are, ‘Born Again’. Abide with those who are in far away places this night, and comfort them with your Ruach. Heal those who have called upon your all-powerful name, HaShem YHWH (B’H) for deliverance from pain, sorrow, and loneliness and renew them with wings as Eagles. You are the Light that sustains us this Shabbat and for all time. We offer our praises to you in our speech, thought, and song as we rest from our work, so that we may be refreshed and elevated with you in the Shabbat of The New Y’rushalayim. Actively searching, and seeking your Shalom that passes all understanding, we ask that you Prepare us Abba, for your soon return. Cause us to love one another, as you Sar Shalom (Prince of Peace), love each of us! Glory, Praise, and Honor be to HaMelech Malchei HaMlachim (The King who is above all kings)! Shouting “Hallelu Yah!” we fall before you, arms outstretched, face and palms to the ground, and then you lift us to stand before your Eternal Majesty, and finally, finally, we gaze upon your beautiful face as your Host sings a new song of victory and deliverance!

Sing Hallelu Yah!
Worship The King!
Shabbat Shalom!

SHABBAT SHALOM CHAVERIM!

This Shabbat, give yourself the gift of this vision given to Yeshayahu;

In the year that Sovereign Uzziyahu died, I saw יהוה sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the Hĕḵal.  Above it stood seraphim. Each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.  And one cried to another and said, “Set-apart, set-apart, set-apart is יהוה of hosts; all the earth is filled with His esteem!” And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke.  Yeshayahu (Isa) 6:1-4

And then join me by reading the following text aloud, with a strong and joyful voice;

Shout with joy to Elohim, All the earth! Sing out the splendour of His Name; Make His praise esteemed. Say to Elohim, “How awesome are Your works! Through the greatness of Your power Your enemies pretend obedience to You. “All the earth bow to You, They sing praises to You, They praise Your Name.” Selah.   Tehillim (Ps) 66:1-4 (TS 2009)

Then my chaverim, while standing and facing Yerushalayim, SHOUT THIS OUT SO THAT ALL WILL KNOW!

Praise Yah! Praise, O servants of יהוה, Praise the Name of יהוה! Blessed be the Name of יהוה, Now and forever! From the rising of the sun to its going down, The Name of יהוה is praised. יהוה is high above all nations, His esteem above the heavens. Who is like יהוה our Elohim, Who is enthroned on high? Tehillim 113:1-5 (TS 2009)

Have a Blessed Shabbat!

HIS TRUTH IS A SHIELD AND ARMOUR

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, Who abides under the shadow of the Almighty, He is saying of יהוה, “My refuge and my stronghold, My Elohim, in whom I trust!” For He delivers you from the snare of a trapper, From the destructive pestilence. He covers you with His feathers, And under His wings you take refuge; His truth is a shield and armour. You are not afraid of the dread by night, Of the arrow that flies by day, Of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Of destruction that ravages at midday. A thousand fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it does not come near you. Only with your eyes you look on, And see the reward of the wrong ones. Because you have made יהוה – My refuge, the Most High – your dwelling place, No evil befalls you, And a plague does not come near your tent; For He commands His messengers concerning you, To guard you in all your ways. They bear you up in their hands, Lest you dash your foot against a stone. You tread upon lion and cobra, Young lion and serpent you trample under foot.“Because he cleaves to Me in love, Therefore I deliver him; I set him on high, Because he has known My Name.“When he calls on Me, I answer him; I am with him in distress; I deliver him and esteem him.“With long life I satisfy him, And show him My deliverance.”  Tehillim 91 (TS2009)

Today, I present you with this prayer and message. Be strong in all adversity through perseverance in His Truth. It is that perseverance that will transport you to “…the secret place of the Most High…”, and cause you to “… abide(s) under the shadow of the Almighty…”.

Shabbat is an island of time for us as followers of Y’shua, as it was with the Natsarenes of ancient times; and the enemy knows that. He (the enemy) will utilize every weapon in his arsenal during this twenty-four hour period, more so than any other day of the week, to penetrate your defenses.

Do not think for one minute that you have the power to resist him, or that he will somehow leave you unmolested on This Holy Day! He is a master of lies and deceptions, and he has had thousands of years perfecting his destructive art. However, all Praise Be to His Glorius Name, our power comes from the spiritual connections we have made with the Giver of Truth, who is also our Mighty El of war; our Commander, who is our only way of deliverance!

Those spiritual connections we must have to come into His Shabbat Rest do not begin and end on the Seventh Day, they begin each day of the week prior to Shabbat! We gather our strength each day and when Shabbat arrives, that strength is multiplied through that connection which in turn multiplies upon itself week after week and Shabbat after Shabbat as we are becoming ‘one new man’.

Our Shabbat Rest is realized through our arrival at “…the secret place of the Most High…”, wherein we are given as a reward; our deliverance “…from the snare of a trapper, From the destructive pestilence.”

For your encouragement today, and spiritual protection, I pray that you would read and pray with me, as one body, Tehillim 91. Meditate upon each word, each sentence; as you ask of Him who Is Our Armour to make you strong for the battle!

SHABBAT SHALOM!
