Cheshvan 10 * October 23, 2015
Second Month, 10th Day Gen 7:11
The Royals 6th Game * Strongest Pacific or Atlantic Hurricane Hitting Mexico * Three Greek Earthquakes * Noah 600 years old the day God closes door to Ark…today Cheshvan 10 * Sabbath Torah Study, ‘Get you out’ begins * Noah is safe inside but chaos outside…flood waters erupt Cheshvan 17/18 (Fri/Saturday, Halloween Oct 30/31 2015.)
What does that mean? It could just be a normal day in God’s routine, but He did NOT make it routine. The Sabbath is ‘set-apart’ (holy). God declares the end from the beginning. Thus, when we study the beginning of our bibles, we see God-patterns and God-directed event occurring. In the last two weeks we have once again began studying in the Book of Genesis.
Week one was about God designing the world in SIX days. Is it a co-incidence that the Kansas City Royals SIXTH game playing at this writing. Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath and He is witnessed in Genesis (as God) declaring man to REST on the Sabbath. The Royal’s game to qualify for the World Series could be played tonight side-by side the Mexico Hurricane EXACTLY as Sabbath begins at dusk.
Last week was the second week studying Noah. We learn that God loaded all the animals on the ark and closed the door TODAY…..Cheshvan 10. On Cheshvan 7, I reminded my husband that it was a day to ‘pray for rain’ if it was needed. We certainly needed it. Our youngest son planted new grass over three acres and it has only had a small amount of rain on it in the last month since having been seeded. It popped green but now it is very dry even after a drenching Spring in the Midwest when the beans could not get in. Hay was re-seeding itself by the first cuttings and so the quality of hay was poor and perhaps only one crop was cut in some fields.
So…..what is today about? I’d like to tell you it was good. Especially, right here in the Kansas City area as the Kansas City Royals are in their SIXTH game and it is tied up to go to the World Series. The Sixth game is being planned as the Sabbath begins. It is now ‘rained out’ until around 11:30 p.m. If they win this game, they will NOT play on Cheshvan 11, October 24. They will go to the world series which has not been done for 29 years. They are more than excited in this area. Those attending will be very tired and may not attend their Sabbath gatherings…..
You may not like me saying this, but sports is, ‘the pride of man’. God did not want the Jews to be involved in the Olympics and the world did NOT want them to attend. The Hebrews would have their own competitions known as the Macabbeean Olympics. By 1918 they were granted to join the Olympics. Germany declared War on most of the world which caused the last two years of the Olympics to be canceled. God hates the GREEK gods. People claim the first two commands, but they fail to realize in those first two, God declared not to have false gods before Me. Then, on these two mitzvotes (commands) ALL the rest hang from these….. They never went away, but could be summarized by the first two.
Tonight, before I sat down to write what God put on my heart to tell you, I checked my earthquake map. I really never see GREECE having earthquakes. Today…THREE earthquakes to GREECE and one had just occurred within the hour of my checking the world-wide quake status. It is in these things that I know I am suppose to bring this news to you. Greek thinking abounds on our earth and God is trying to bring man back to their knees in reverence to who created them.
I have to say that we named our first born, Aaron. We are not Jewish. I liked the name and thus he was named Aaron. Today, I know in my heart that it was God who named our first born. Our first born is forty-two years old tomorrow. He is sold out to God and walks with God in the foremost of his mind everyday. He teaches his children the ways of a Christian life-style and has been a deacon in his church for many years now. He and his wife are married twenty years this fall. He was in the Air Force stationed in England so they were able to stay in Greece a week. Their honeymoon in the Fall of 1995 to Greece is another ‘hand of God’ as these three earthquakes are shaking that area today. Greece is where the Olympics and sports began. It is Zeus, Diana and other gods that we still honor.
Tonight, The Royals have caused such a stir that restaurants and bars are sold out and tickets for a cheap seat in the Royals Stadium are scalped for $130.00. What did God do to this Sixth game? He rained them out at 10:01 p.m. The game should have been over, but it went into a tie and now the people are soaking wet and running for shelter, just as the people outside of Noah’s ark desired to be inside with him.
What happened on Cheshvan 10? Genesis 7:0, it was the day that God closed the door of the Ark. It would be one year and one week before Noah would step foot on dry ground. Their lives were not calling on the name of God, but they were involved in the pride of man…even as the men of renown had bred with the sons of God (those walking with God). God said His spirit could NOT strive with men and thus in 120 years their lives would be ended. Men were living over 900 years old. These people now would have their lives shortened by this premature death. God sets a pattern of removing men early from the earth when in direct disobedience to His Torah.
What else is happening on our earth tonight? Quoting the Kansas City Channel 4 News, “The Strongest Hurricane on Record” has now hit Mexico.” They have seen it coming for days just as Noah warned and people saw him building his ark for 100 years. This hurricane has winds of 200 mph which has never happened in the entire Atlantic and Pacific waters…………..
Now, what day is it? I tell you again it is the day that the last people on earth accepted God’s invitation to ‘Get on Board’ or be lost. Noah’s story sounded so ridiculous to the people, as they had never ever seen rain before in their lives. God had watered the land with a dew and mist up to that point.
Today, men believe in Greek gods….just because it’s fun and don’t really believe they are real, Christians say. Christians expect God to understand as they pump themselves up to be special before men. And they expect God to understand when they dress their kids up to celebrate a holiday that is about witches and demons…..after all, it’s all just fun. They expect God to understand about Christmas even though they know it’s not really when Jesus is born. These Christians are to be examples and yet the world laughs as they worship in falseness.
Tonight is about Greece and sports. Tonight, Cheshvan 10 is about Noah’s flood and the LARGEST Hurricane witnessed by man in our life-time.
We sit in stadiums as people die. We cheer in the color of blue as red blood flows in river beds from flooding. We sit in America and play ‘church’ as Israel has an ‘knife intifida’ that has been called by the Palestinians. Do I sound upset….yes….God is upset….
Today begins the Sabbath and now, I have to tell you the ‘rest of the story.’
The week ended with Noah and since God’s patterns are circular and not linear, God will follow His flood pattern as we begin this next 7-year Shemittah cycle. The Bloody Moons of 2014-2015 are not just about Israel, but they are about mankind and what they have and are doing to God’s children.
Last night I read the Torah readings for this coming Sabbath with the title Lekh L’kha (Get yourself out) Gen 12:1-17:27. Tonight I was reading the Isaiah portion of the Sabbath study. Instead of reading the correct passages, God had my eyes reading a chapter ahead and this is what I read as I starred at the news about this ‘Strongest Hurricane in History,’ and ‘The Royals ‘Rain-delay’ game…keeping people on hold into the wees hours of darkness and into the Sabbath… Would they could play one more game..their 7th on the Sabbath of Rest? ………….Ouch!
Here are a few of the Scriptures in Isaiah. God is speaking to Israel. Let’s apply it to the world and especially, those grafted into Israel…known as the Church.
Isaiah 41:28 “For I beheld, and there was no man; even among them, and there was no counselor, that, when I asked of them, could answer a word. 29 Behold, they are all vanity; their works are nothing; their molten images are wind and confusion.”
When I saw the view of the ball stadium it was wind, rain and confusion. It was Cheshvan 10 when God closed the doors on the ark and the time had come for no one else to enter. There is a time that God will no longer hear men’s prayers because they truly no longer love His Torah (instructions.)
The scheduled reading was: Isaiah 40:27-41:16. I will let you read it…but here is a small portion to ponder as the pride of man and the power of God are on our earth tonight as the Sabbath begins. (Believe me, God’s hand moving on the Sabbath is a regular occurrence and people aren’t even aware of it…because they aren’t on God’s calendar any longer. How can they call, if they don’t know when to call on God..He does have set appointments)
Isaiah 41:31 is the verse where we renew our strength and mount up with wings as eagles…. it’s everyones favorite… He is telling Israel that He is calling them from the ends of the earth and they are NOT cast away. It is God who will strengthen them and those that strive with them will perish. 41:11.
41:16 “You shall fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them, and you shall rejoice in Yahuah and shall glory in the Holy One of Israel.”
Tonight and this weekend we see The Hand of God as a whirlwind and scattering those that reject The King of the Universe. The prayers of the Israelites are heard every Shabbot. God responds to those that pray….and God does respond for defeating your enemies. Where is your relationship with Adonai? I can tell you His hand is severe and this current Shemittah cycle that is in it’s second month…. will find many men wondering why God removes them from all the fun of this world.
When we decide to follow the traditions and ways of men, then we don’t have time for the traditions of God. The traditions of God can only be successful if they are done with a heart for His son, Yeshua. If we understand that God hates Greek then we would not build towers to ourselves.
I’m sorry to report that tonight….and this coming year and into our future we are going to witness the Hand of God in out-of-proportionate degrees…… You can blame it on global warming or underground volcanoes that are heating up the earth, but the fact remains, that God has allowed it and even implemented it in order to be used to bring correction to children who will not listen.
Same story line— different year.
