Torah Portion – Pesach B

Christianity really came out the Jewish sect The Way, those people being Jeshuaists or followers of Jeshua gathered in the name of Jeshua to honour the Only One True God and to remember how their master teacher Jeshua gave himself as a ransom for the sins of many.

Messiah Jeshua was a devout Jewish man of flesh and blood who managed to have many followers. Though soon false teachers came unto the platform, entering Roman Greek philosophies, going as far as agreeing with the Roman Emperor Constantine the Great to make Jeshua into Jesus (Hail Zeus) and making a god of him. From then onwards we saw Christendom with the trinitarians but always have been there real followers of Jeshua, not going for that Trinity but keeping worship solely to the Only One True God of Israel, like every Jew should also worship Only One True God above all.

You consider the “resurrection of Messiah” as “an inherently Jewish event” but it was the proof for the whole world that from then onwards a man of flesh and blood could be taken out of the dead. (Those who say Jesus is God, naturally still have no proof that man can come out of death, and often forget that God even can not die, so would have faked His death, fooling also mankind considering His all knowing, because telling people he does not know when he would return.

With his own will putting aside Jeshua did fulfil the Will of God and gave himself to his heavenly Father as an offering, shedding his blood as a lamb, this time not only for liberating or bringing a passover of houses of Jehudi, but for all people, making it possible for Jews and goyim to have a restored relationship with the Most High God.

For sure the Elohim HaShem Jehovah demanded to celebrate the Passover of the with blood sprinkled houses in Egypt, and Jesus also did remember that on the Seder night, demanding also to remember from then onwards how he (Jesus) as presented himself as a Lamb of God and a Lamb for God, to pay for the sins of all people and to inaugurate the New Covenant. Therefore we all come together on 14 Nisan to have a Memorial Meal in remembrance of those two special acts of liberation.

To remember

over the years the Lord has taught the blog writer how to celebrate Jeshua’s resurrection in an authentic Messianic Jewish way.

  • In Messianic Judaism, the resurrection of Yeshua = one of our most treasured truths.
  • significance of the resurrection > celebration of miraculous event = merited + necessary.
  • > faith in Yeshua + belief in His resurrection sets us apart from the rest of the Jewish community.

The death of Yeshua = extremely sensitive subject to most Jewish people.

  • resurrection of Messiah > Messianic Judaism shares in common with Christianity.

customary meal very much like a Havdalah meal in our day > inaugurates each week with the beautiful symbols of a cup of wine, fragrant spices, and the luminescent glow of a multi-wicked candle.

Parasha With Passion - Weekly Torah Portions

Parasha With Passion – Weekly Torah Reading Cycle – Pesach B

This week, in Parashat Pesach Matzot-B, God instructs Israel to observe Passover
through the generations.

Deuteronomy 16:1:

“Observe the month of Aviv and keep the
Passover to
Adonai your God, for in the month
of Aviv[
b]Adonai your God brought you out
from Egypt by night.

Celebrating
Yeshua’s Resurrection In An Authentic Messianic Jewish Way

As a Messianic Believer, one of my biggest struggles was learning how to
celebrate Yeshua’s resurrection in a Messianic Jewish context. However, over the years the Lord has taught
me how to celebrate Yeshua’s resurrection in an authentic Messianic Jewish way.

Yeshua is ALIVE proclaimed his disciples as they gazed in an empty tomb (Mark
16:1-8
). The
resurrection of Yeshua is an event that Jewish believers experienced before
Christianity even existed. In Messianic
Judaism, the resurrection of Yeshua is…

Learning from ourselves

Often it are the setbacks that bring people back with their feet on the ground and have they rethink about their position in this world and in their life.

The most difficult part in our life is often to liberate ourself from the chain of vanity that may have caught us, and to get to learn that we better have to become an instrument in the Hands of our Creator, following His path He has laid out in front of us.

To remember

“You teach best what you most need to learn.”  = line from Richard Bach’s book ‘Illusions’ running through mind

Marianne Williamson frequently shares very personal stories about her honest trials through life which makes her advice all the more more palatable

  • We share in our own ways + we learn in our own ways

 

today’s lesson = Humility.

  • ego wants to (and has been) defending self, making excuses, + trying to justify own actions
  • making way through personal feelings of remorse, embarrassment, + confusio
  • often advice we give to others = exact advice we need ourselves.
  • hold ourselves to some ridiculous standard of “perfection” => too self-conscious to admit struggle with things we advise others to do.
  • listen to ourselves +  realize things we passionately want to teach other people = things we, ourselves, truly want to learn + embody =>  vigilant level of self awareness + honesty

enhance + deepen relationships with others + ability to impact them in a positive way

1)  Be Honest

2)  Have Compassion

3)  Stop Trying to be Perfect =>  sense of freedom

“You teach best what you most need to learn.” ~Richard Bach

This line from Richard Bach’s book ‘Illusions’ has been running through my mind for the past couple of days. One of my favorite authors, Marianne Williamson, frequently shares very personal stories about her honest trials through life which makes her advice all the more more palatable to me.

But that’s my preference. We share in our own ways and we learn in our own ways. Just because I prefer authors who share their personal journey doesn’t mean everyone is so sensitive as to how advice is presented. Perhaps what I most need to learn is that we all write in very unique styles. That’s what creates this wonderful world of blogging. I am an ongoing student and today’s lesson is Humility.

I want to share an article from inspirational speaker Mike Robbins who expresses eloquently so much of…

Timeless Insights on Humility

Professions for PEACE

Of all trees, I observe God hath chosen the vine, a low plant that creeps upon the helpful wall; of all beasts, the soft and patient lamb; of all fowls, the mild and guileless dove. Christ is the rose of the field, and the lily of the valley. When God appeared to Moses, it was not in the lofty cedar nor the sturdy oak nor the spreading palm; but in a bush, a humble, slender, abject shrub; as if He would, by these elections, check the conceited arrogance of man.

~Owen Feltham (1602 – Feb 23, 1668)

I is for Incompleteness

How often our thoughts do not bring us to think why we did not do this or that and did not become this or that? How many of us dream not of a magnificent career and when we start working dream of reaching the top one day. But when would that top being reached?

More than once we receive a figural slap in the face, and several time we are put hard on the ground, making us aware that perhaps we want to much of ourselves or that we have a little ‘too big me’ in us.

Humility is often a trait that is difficult to achieve, but we can better place our hope in it, to feel happy, than to keep on struggling in the swamp of our vanity.

Hot Dogs and Marmalade

The victory of humility is the acceptance of our own incompleteness,
in order that He may make us complete in His own way.

Thomas Merton, The Silent Life

Gib mir ein Geheimnis

Härzenswort

Gib mir ein Geheimnis!

Wir schmieden es ins Zwischenuns

Gib mir ein Geheimnis!

Wir lassen es wuchern über Gräben

Gib mir ein Wort

Und ich geb dir die Atempause

Zwischen den Silben zurück

Besser noch:

Gib mir dein Schweigen,

Dass zwischen unseren Blicken

Ein Bedeutungsteppich blüht.

Geen enkele storm kan eeuwig duren

Geen enkele storm kan eeuwig duren.
Het zal nooit 365 dagen achter elkaar regenen.
Houd in gedachten dat problemen komen te geschieden, niet om te blijven.
Maak je geen zorgen!
Geen enkele storm, zelfs niet die in je leven, kan eeuwig duren.

No storm can last forever.

No storm can last forever. It will never rain 365 days consecutively.
Keep in mind that trouble comes to pass, not to stay. Don’t worry!
No storm, not even the one in your life, can last forever.

Wanneer je op het diepste punt in je leven bevindt

Men heeft in het leven van die barre momenten. Het kan wel eens gebeuren dat men zo diep in de put lijkt te zitten dat men geen uitweg meer ziet. toch moet men weten dat al is men diep gezonken in het ogenschijnlijk groot moeras, dat daar meerdere takken zijn om zich aan vast te grijpen.

Op het laagste punt in je leven heb je het lef en de kracht nodig om verder te kijken dan de horizon, maar weet dat diep in je er vaak meer is dan je zou denken. Zelfs als we niet het gevoel hebben dat er een grote verandering zou komen, zou je uit het veld moeten komen, vertrouwend dat ook voor jou ergens daar (misschien ver weg) het licht zal schijnen van een heldere morgenster die bereid is om je van nieuwe energie te voorzien en eindelijk de deuren te openen die zo strak gesloten leken.

Als je op het laagste punt bent, sta je open voor de grootste verandering.
Kracht komt niet van wat je kunt doen,
het komt door het overwinnen
van
de dingen waarvan je dacht dat je ze niet kon doen.

When you are at your lowest point,

At the lowest point in your life you need the guts and strength to see further than the horizon, but know that deep in you there is often more than you would think. Even when we do not feel like a great change could be coming, you should get out of the pitch trusting that also for you somewhere there (perhaps far away) shall shine the light of a bright morning-star willing to give you new energy and at last opening the doors which seemed so tightly closed.

Purplerays

When you are at the your lowest point, you are open to the greatest change.
Strength doesn’t come from what you can do, it comes from overcoming
the things you thought you couldn’t do.

Finding The Friend That Sticks Closer Than A Brother 

Victors' Corner

When I thought I had reached an awful end.
I came to know a faithful and true Friend.
Who completely loves me as I am.
And never causes me any kind of harm.

Many a friend have come my journey way.
But some of them would not afford to stay.
Many were willing to help but were unable.
A few unwilling to render help, but capable.

There’s one thing I have come to know.
Many friends will always come and go.
Their going away may not be caused by strife.
It is a normal phenomenon of this life.

It’s okay when some friends go away for good.
Especially if they can’t stand in your ‘hood’.
When that happens, I’ll try not to feel too sad.
Because I’ll soon find out it’s not all that bad.

Indeed, there is a friend that sticks closer,
Than the most loyal biological brother.
But…
