Day 31 of the Omer, 16th of the Hebrew Month Iyar
DAILY PRAYER FOR THE COUNTING OF THE OMER:
Each day, one says the blessing:
Blessed are You, YAHUVEH our ELOHIM, King of the universe, Who has sanctified us with His commandments and has commanded us concerning the counting of the Omer.
Today is the 31st day of the Omer. The Merciful One, may He return to us the service of the Temple to its place, speedily in our days. Amen, Selah! IN YAHUSHUA’S NAME
Day 31 Omer Reading:
Week 5 /Attribute 5
We have completed 4 weeks counting to Shavuot Sitting At The Feet Of Our Master YAHUSHUA
Are You Willing To pay The Price?
Matthew 10:32 “Whoever acknowledges ME in the presence of others I will also acknowledge in the presence of MY Father in heaven.
Matthew 10:33 But whoever disowns ME before others I will disown before MY Father in heaven.
Matthew 10:34 “Don’t suppose that I have come to bring peace to the Land. It is not peace I have come to bring, but a sword!
Matthew 10:35 For I have come to set Matthew 10:36 a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter – in – law against her mother – in – law, so that a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.
,br> Matthew 10:37 Whoever loves his father or mother more than he loves ME is not worthy of ME; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than he loves ME is not worthy of ME.
Matthew 10:38 And anyone who does not take up his execution – stake and follow ME is not worthy of ME.
Matthew 10:39 Whoever finds his own life will lose it, but the person who loses his life for MY sake will find it.
Above YAHUSHUA describes a true Talmidim/Disciple of HIS. HE clearly is telling us their will be a price for following HIM. Many want the blessings but do not want to pay the price. These are very strong words and during this time of counting the Omer we need to search our hearts and ask forgiveness if we have put others including our families before HIM. I am not saying we are to ignore our families, but we need to keep everything in its proper order. We need to COUNT THE COST.
We want the blessings but we don’t like the “IF’S”, because the “IFS” are conditional and require obedience. It is only obedience to HIS Word that brings the blessings.
Those of you who feel you are called to be Pastor, Rabbi’s Teachers etc. Are you willing to pay the price? Are you willing to serve HIM even if you do not get paid and to trust HIM to meet your needs?
Are you willing to be transparent before those you serve, admit when you are wrong and repent if you have offended someone? Are you willing to be accountable to others? Are you willing to be a servant? Are you willing to serve HIM, even if you get no worldy recognition? Are you willing to give and give to those who HE sends across your path even if they never say thank you and leave when correction is given or when the going gets tough?
Yes there is a price to pay for serving the Master, but the blessings here and in the World to Come/Olam Ha Ba far out weigh the sacrifices.
Do you love the Master YAHUSHUA our MASHIACH Our King more then you love your family or even your children? Don’t you realize that HE loves your children even more then you do? If HE calls you to sacrifice for His Kingdom, don’t you think HE knows how to take care of your children as well? If you don’t you do not know the Father heart of YAHUVEH. As we serve HIM, in prayer we trust HIM to take care of what concerns us.
Are you willing to be forsaken, humiliated, scorned by your friends and family because you choose to be obedient to HIS Torah and YAHUSHUA? Many are not. They like to “Play” with the ‘Jewish” things, but they do not want to live what they represent or learn what they mean or give up their traditions of men and be obediant to HIS Word.
HE is using HIS Sword of HIS Ruach/Spirit to seperate the sheep from the goats. HE is beginning to seperate those who love HIM and serve HIM from the Heart, and those who are only giving lip service.
HE is seperating those who want the “Burger King” Christiantiy where they can have it their way, from those who are saying Thy Will Be Done, Not Mine!
We made the decision, that we were going to serve HIM HIS way, not our way. We were not going to be men pleasers, but please HIM. It is only when we are totally sold out, and in one accord as HIS Body that we will be like those who went before us in the early Messianic Community of Acts 2.
The model we follow is that of the early Messianic Community who loved YAHUSHUA and The Torah and flowed in the Gifts of the Ruach HaKodesh. We are not ashamed to make a joyful noise, dance before HIM and let His RUACH have HER way in our Services. We were created to Worship HIM in Spirit and In Truth.
I will not Compromise Even In The Midst Of Bablyon (Article)
John 14:21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me, and the one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and reveal myself to him.”
2 Corinthians 4:5 For what we are proclaiming is not ourselves, but the Messiah YAHUSHUA as Lord, with ourselves as slaves for you because of YAHUSHUA.
2Co 4:6 For it is the ELOHIM who once said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” who has made HIS light shine in our hearts, the light of the knowledge of ELOHIM’s glory shining in the face of the MASHIACH YAHUSHUA.
2Co 4:7 But we have this treasure in clay jars, so that it will be evident that such overwhelming power comes from ELOHIM and not from us.
2Co 4:8 We have all kinds of troubles, but we are not crushed; we are perplexed, yet not in despair;
2Co 4:9 persecuted, yet not abandoned; knocked down, yet not destroyed.
2Co 4:10 We always carry in our bodies the dying of YAHUSHUA, so that the life of YAHUSHUA may be manifested in our bodies too.
2Co 4:11 For we who are alive are always being handed over to death for YAHUSHUA’s sake, so that YAHUSHUA’s life also might be manifested in our mortal bodies.
2Co 4:12 Thus death is at work in us but life in you.
Read Psalm 119: 73 – 80
Psa 119:73 י (Yud) Your hands made and formed me; give me understanding, so I can learn your mitzvot.
