In Our Weaknesses, He Is Our Strength.

May 23, 2007

2 Corinthians 12:9 but he told me, “My grace is enough for you, for my power is brought to perfection in weakness.” Therefore, I am very happy to boast about my weaknesses, in order that the Messiah’s power will rest upon me. (CJB)


To Have Childlike Faith

May 22, 2007

Mark 10:13 People were bringing children to him so that he might touch them, but the talmidim rebuked those people.   14 However, when Yeshua saw it, he became indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me, don’t stop them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15 Yes! I tell you, whoever does not receive the Kingdom of God like a child will not enter it!” 16 And he took them in his arms, laid his hands on them, and made a b’rakhah over them.

To have faith like that of a child – simple, pure and innocent.

Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) ירושלים

May 15, 2007

M’lakhim Alef (1 Kings) 11:36 To his son I will give one tribe, so that David my servant will always have a light burning before me in Yerushalayim, the city I chose for myself as the place to put my name.

Tehillim (Psalms) 122:6 Pray for shalom in Yerushalayim; may those who love you prosper.

Tehillim 51:18 In your good pleasure, make Tziyon prosper; rebuild the walls of Yerushalayim

Tehillim 137:5 If I forget you, Yerushalayim, may my right hand wither away!

Tehillim 137:6 May my tongue stick to the roof of my mouth if I fail to remember you, if I fail to count Yerushalayim the greatest of all my joys.

Tehillim 147:2 ADONAI is rebuilding Yerushalayim, gathering the dispersed of Isra’el.

Tehillim 147:12 Glorify ADONAI, Yerushalayim! Praise your God, Tziyon!

Mikhah (Micah) 4:2  Many Gentiles will go and say, “Come, let’s go up to the mountain of ADONAI, to the house of the God of Ya’akov! He will teach us about his ways, and we will walk in his paths.” For out of Tziyon will go forth Torah, the word of ADONAI from Yerushalayim.

Mikhah 4:8 You, tower of the flock, hill of the daughter of Tziyon, to you your former sovereignty will return, the royal power of the daughter of Yerushalayim.

Tz’fanyah (Zephaniah) 3:14 Sing, daughter of Tziyon! Shout, Isra’el! Be glad and rejoice with all your heart, daughter of Yerushalayim!

Z’kharyah (Zechariah) 9:9 Rejoice with all your heart, daughter of Tziyon! Shout out loud, daughter of Yerushalayim! Look! Your king is coming to you. He is righteous, and he is victorious. Yet he is humble – he’s riding on a donkey, yes, on a lowly donkey’s colt.

Z’kharyah 12:8 When that day comes, ADONAI will defend those living in Yerushalayim. On that day, even someone who stumbles will be like David; and the house of David will be like God, like the angel of ADONAI before them.

Z’kharyah 12:9 “When that day comes, I will seek to destroy all nations attacking Yerushalayim;

Z’kharyah 12:10 and I will pour out on the house of David and on those living in Yerushalayim a spirit of grace and prayer; and they will look to me, whom they pierced.” They will mourn for him as one mourns for an only son; they will be in bitterness on his behalf like the bitterness for a firstborn son.

Z’kharyah 12:11 When that day comes, there will be great mourning in Yerushalayim, mourning like that for Hadad-Rimmon in the Megiddo Valley.

Z’kharyah 14:4 On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which lies to the east of Yerushalayim; and the Mount of Olives will be split in half from east to west, to make a huge valley. Half of the mountain will move toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

Mattiyahu (Matthew) 23:37 “Yerushalayim! Yerushalayim! You kill the prophets! You stone those who are sent to you! How often I wanted to gather your children, just as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, but you refused!

Luke 24:47 and in his name repentance leading to forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed to people from all nations, starting with Yerushalayim.

Hebrews 12:22 On the contrary, you have come to Mount Tziyon, that is, the city of the living God, heavenly Yerushalayim; to myriads of angels in festive assembly;

Revelation 3:12 I will make him who wins the victory a pillar in the Temple of my God, and he will never leave it. Also I will write on him the name of my God and the name of my God’s city, the new Yerushalayim coming down out of heaven from my God, and my own new name.

Revelation 21:2 Also I saw the holy city, New Yerushalayim, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.

Revelation 21:10 He carried me off in the Spirit to the top of a great, high mountain and showed me the holy city, Yerushalayim, coming down out of heaven from God.

 Yerushalayim, the city of G-d. Mentioned over 700 times in the bible (in this case, the Tanakh plus B’rit Hadashah)

Tehillim (Psalm) 119:130

May 10, 2007

Your words are a doorway that lets in light, giving understanding to the thoughtless. (Complete Jewish Bible)

 I am deeply in love with this verse. 

The L-rd’s Prayer

May 9, 2007

`Our Father in heaven! May your Name be kept holy.
May your Kingdom come, your will be done on earth as in heaven.
Give us the food we need today.
Forgive us what we have done wrong, as we too have forgiven those who have wronged us. And do not lead us into hard testing, but keep us safe from the Evil One. For kingship, power and glory are yours forever. Amen.’

From Mattiyahu (Matthew) 6:9-13

Persecutions, trials, counting it all joy.

May 7, 2007

Ya’akov (James) 1:2 Regard it all as joy, my brothers, when you face various kinds of temptations; 3 for you know that the testing of your trust produces perseverance.

2 Corinthians 12:10 Yes, I am well pleased with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions and difficulties endured on behalf of the Messiah; for it is when I am weak that I am strong.
