It is written:
“Here is what Adonai says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask about the ancient paths, ‘Which one is the good way?’ Take it, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Jeremiah 6:16)
In our union with Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord, let us re-establish our closeness to ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, His God and Father; as we are His People, His Isra’el, and He is our God, let us return to Him with ALL our heart.
In this month of “Elul” according to the Jewish calendar, let us keep the Jewish People in prayer, praying that as they seek the face of ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, our God, in repentance, they will come to know the Jewish Messiah Yeshua (The Living Torah), our Lord, as their long-awaited Messiah.
(The Torah is a faithful expression of God’s character. God sent His Beloved Son Yeshua to keep the Torah for us (The Man Yeshua HaMashiach is the Living Torah of God). The Torah no longer condemns us, setting us free to accept it as our own guide for pleasing the One who died in our place.)
May they ponder the path of their feet and find the right way which will bring them to their journey’s end, for the Jewish Messiah Yeshua is “The Way”, “The Truth” and “The Life”; no one comes to ADONAI (YHWH), “The Father” except through Him (John 14:6). Faith in the Jewish Messiah Yeshua relates us rightly to ADONAI (YHWH), His God and Father, our God.
Walking in union with Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord, may cost us some pains, but it is the way that will lead us to True Rest and we will find an abundant recompense at our journey’s end.
It is only through a union with Yeshua HaMashiach that Justice will well up like water, and Righteousness like an ever-flowing stream, a Righteousness that is like His own, dependable and strong; a Righteousness that comes from God, through the Faithfulness of Yeshua the Messiah, to ALL, Jews and non-Jews, who continue TRUSTING (Romans 3:22)
Yeshua HaMashiach is “The One” who offers Righteousness to everyone who TRUSTS. (Romans 10:4)
The blood of Yeshua HaMashiach is the Foundation and the basis of our acceptance before God. The Righteousness of God must be received now that it “has been manifested”.
Let us also pray for the nation of Israel and for our own nations as sin makes a gap in the hedge of protection for the nations; let us stand in the gap, and make up the breach, by repentance, and prayer, and reformation for Israel and our nations.
As it is written: “If my people, who bear my name, will humble themselves, pray, seek my face and turn from their evil ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and “HEAL THEIR LAND”(2 Chronicles 7:14).
So as Moshe (Moses) stood in the gap when he made intercession for Israel let us also in our union with the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, our Lord, stand in the gap for Israel and our nations, and let us remember that Repentance is not solely about a change in attitude; it is about a change in direction, turning from our wicked ways, and returning to ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, from whom we have revolted.
ADONAI (YHWH), the God of Isra’el, our God, is Merciful and Compassionate, slow to anger, rich in Grace and Truth; showing Grace to the thousandth generation, forgiving offenses, crimes and sins (Exodus 34:5-7), through His Beloved Son, the Jewish Messiah Yeshua who gave His life for us.
Praised be ADONAI (YHWH), the God and Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah (Romans 15:6), who, in keeping with His Great Mercy, has caused us, through the resurrection of Yeshua the Messiah from the dead, to be born again to a LIVING HOPE, to an inheritance that cannot decay, spoil or fade, kept safe for us in Heaven (1 Peter 1:3-4).
Grace and Shalom to you all, Jews and non-Jews, from ADONAI (YHWH) our Father and the Lord Yeshua the Messiah.
