It is written:
“When Avram was 99 years old Adonai appeared to Avram and said to him, “I am El Shaddai [God Almighty]. Walk in my presence and be pure-hearted.” (Genesis 17:1)
As Avram fell on his face, let us also fall on our face, putting ourselves into a posture of adoration, for ADONAI (YHWH) the God of Isra’el, our God has made Himself known to us, and took us into His Covenant of Grace and Communion with Himself, through our union with His beloved Son, the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, our Lord.
Yes, let’s bow down and worship; let’s kneel before ADONAI (YHWH), our God, who made us.
Now in our union with Yeshua the Messiah, ADONAI (YHWH), His God and Father, our God, graciously condescends to talk with us. He talks with us by His Word (Proverb 6:22), He talks with us by His Spirit, the Ruach HaKodesh (John 14:26).
In our union with Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord, let us walk forever before ADONAI (YHWH) our God in our integrity; let us set Him always before us, and think, and speak, and act, in everything, as those who are always under His eye.
Let us have a constant regard to His Word as our Rule and to His Glory as our end in all our actions, and be continually in His fear.
If we listen intently to the voice of ADONAI (YHWH) our God, do what He considers right, pay attention to His mitzvot and observe His laws, He will be also for us ADONAI “our healer” (Exodus 15:25-26), for ADONAI (YHWH) our God is “The Great physician” through His Beloved Son, Yeshua the Messiah (Isaiah 53:5). If we kept well, it is He that keeps us; if we be made well, it is He that restores us; He is our Life, and the length of our days.
In our union with Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord, the Presence and Power of ADONAI (YHWH), our God, is the banner under which we enlisted, by which we are animated and kept together (Adonai Nissi [ADONAI is my banner/miracle] (Exodus 17:15). In the Name of ADONAI (YHWH), our God, let us always lift up our banners, for it is fit that He who does ALL the work should have ALL the Praise.
Through our union with Yeshua the Messiah (John 10:11), ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, His God and Father, our God is our Shepherd (Psalm 23:1). ADONAI (YHWH), our God, takes a great care of us, Believers. He is our Shepherd, and we may call Him so. We are Saved by Faith in the Messiah, and that hope is not going to make us ashamed, because it is well grounded.
Our God takes us ALL, Jews and non-Jews in union with Yeshua the Messiah, into His fold, His Isra’el and then takes care of us, protects us, and provides for us.
The Day is coming when God’s Sh’khinah will be with mankind…
“Barukh Atah Ha-shem, Elokaynu, Melekh Ha-Olam. Blessed are You, ADONAI our God, Ruler of the Universe.”
Shabbat Shalom to ALL, Jews and non-Jews, who belong to the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, our Lord!
