Yom Kippur – Day of Atonement

Some thoughts on this Day of Atonement….. Are your bones … dry? ….Are you fasting, afflicting and repenting? What is it we should be doing!?? Are we to treat it simply as a FAST day…a CEASING…a SABBATH? What does the Holy One say? Let’s find out!  Here are my thoughts as I share the scriptures that permeate this ‘season’: Isa 58:5  “Is it a fast that I have chosen, a day for a man to afflict his being? Is it to bow down his head like a bulrush, and to spread out sackcloth and ashes? Do you call this a fast, and an acceptable day to יהוה?Isa...

Thoughts for the 10 Days of Awe

לֹא תִשָּׂא אֶת־שֵֽׁם־יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ לַשָּׁוְא You will not lift up or carry the Name of YHVH in an empty, disrespectful, dishonoring way The Holy One has entrusted to us His Name. We are His Covenant people. Wherever we go, whatever we do, we are carrying His Name to the world. For better or worse, we are always engaged in this greatest of all enterprises. The question is, do our lives, our attitudes, our facial expressions, our reactions, our conversations, our priorities, and our deeds bring honor to the Name of our Creator as we go through the world bearing that Name? Are we, through...

More on the 10 Days of Awe

The Days of Awe have reached their midpoint. There are only five of them left. Five evenings. Five mornings. Five days. This sixth Day of Awe is dedicated to reconnecting the Awestruck Heart with the sixth Prophetic Empowerment of our Bridegroom King. This empowerment is usually translated from the Hebrew to English as ‘You will not kill’ or ‘You will not commit murder’. But the prophetic empowerment was not given in English. It was given in Hebrew, and the Hebrew verb used by the Holy One is so much deeper than the English verbs ‘kill’ or...

Days of Awe – Day 9

Posted by on Sep 17, 2018 | 0 comments

One more day. Just one. That is all we have left Dear Friends. Just a matter of hours, with a few odd bundles of minutes and seconds thrown in. These are all that stands between us and the time appointed for us to walk with our Creator through the Valley of the Shadow of Death. A measured number of heartbeats. A limited number of opportunities for showing kindness. A closing window of chances to attempt to reconcile shattered relationships. Only the most poignant prayers of t’shuvah remain available to us. And then we will be called forward, one by one, to review the meaning and...

Days of Awe – Day 8

It is now Day 8 of the Days of Great Awe. This is the appointed time for our Awestruck Hearts to reconnect with the 8th of our Creator’s Prophetic Empowerments from Sinai. This one simply reads: לֹא תִּגְנֹֽב Transliteration: lo tignov rough translation: you will not take for your own use and enjoyment any tangible or intangible thing not meant for or which has not been entrusted to you The Hebrew phrase ‘Lo Tignov’ is traditionally translated into English James as ‘Thou shalt not steal’. English translations of the Bible limit the application and meaning of this empowerment to a...

Posted by on Sep 15, 2018 | 0 comments

The sands of time are rushing through the great hourglass. The Seventh of the Ten Days of Awe is already upon us. The day of our annual appointed death-to-self consecration ceremony – Yom Kippur – is rapidly approaching. Our focus on this seventh Day of Awe is the Seventh of the Prophetic Empowerment spoken over us by our Bridegroom-King at Sinai. That empowerment is short and sweet: לֹא תִּנְאָֽף transliteration: Lo tinaf rough translation: You will not adulterate yourself This empowerment is commonly translated from the Hebrew to English as ‘You will not commit...
