STANDING – 28 Elul 5779 – Shemittah cycle four ending – Cycle five begins in wonder!
The Hebrew year 5780 began September 30, 2019 seeing eye-to-eye with Pope Gregory’s calendar. Hillel and Gregory have yet to come to terms as to show should reign. Will they have 20 20 vision?
Today leaders draw our attention what the year 5780 declares. WONDER!
The year is written as 5780 or ’80.
Many write the year as 8057 but it is still, 80 when dropping off 57.
The year 2019 is also written as ’19. The twenty-first century (20) is a given and can be dropped off.
Thus, The Hebrew year is now 80. Eight life and protection. Eighty is the letter Pei, shown as a mouth…an open mouth that can speak. We should be speaking life this year.
The Gregorian year is 19.
Will they have a clearer vision known as 20 20 vision soon? Yes!
Interestingly, the Hebrew year 5780 adds up to twenty; 5 + 7 + 8 + 0 = 20.
Will Pope Gregory see 20 20 vision? Yes! More and more people are studying this calendar and…..
December 31, 2019 at midnight will become January 1, 2020.
Here we see that both calendars are in harmony….seeing each other FACE TO FACE. And, interestingly, August 2019 began an alignment with Hillel. Av 1 was August 2. The calendars remained only one day apart the entire month of August. Then an amazement happened that won’t happen again until 2026. The calendar’s aligned exactly. Elul 1, 5779 was September 1 2019.
Everyone on the Pope’s calendar and the Hebrew Hillel’s September calendar were reading the Torah portions of “Judges/Shoftim’, ‘When you go forth/Ki Tetze’, ‘When you come in/Ki Tavo’, and ‘Standing/Nitzavim’ on the same day!
What does face-to-face mean biblically, and is it key to our understanding God?
There is no question in my mind that it is important because I have had some real personal encounters with Torah portions and especially The Lord’s Feasts. To some this calendar and it’s events do NOT seem what they are convicted to learn about. It that okay in the life of a believer or not? Is what you don’t know hurting you? Or, is it perhaps hurting your walk with God? I would say that if ‘life’ for you isn’t going so well…you might want to consider this calendar
These are God’s appointments with you just as they were God’s appointments with our ancestors from way back. Yes, they were meant for my parents and those grandparents that perhaps were across the ocean before they moved to America. And yes, our ancestors began with Adam, Enoch, Noach, Abram, Isaac, Ya’cov, David, Jesus and all who would join God’s instructions. Researching history showed me where my former close relatives lost contact and what influences in our world perpetuated these changes.
God explains hard hearts that don’t want to hear the truth with the Israelites when he says that he spoke to them in riddles because of their hard hearts. And, then we see a but. But with Moses…. He spoke directly…clearly…so there was no confusion…and all things would be understood. And, what happened to Moses when he received God’s words, his face shone so bright that he had to wear a veil so the people could look at him. We too will shine brightly now and truly bright when we have access to God’s presence one day. There is a very very special JOY about those that do humble themselves to stand meekly face-to-face with God in prayer.
Moses was a mere human being in the flesh, even speaking with a stutter. God used him because he wanted to know God. His curiosity drove him to the top of a mountain to see why, when the mountain spewed fire and other bushes burned up, this particular bush’s fire never quenched.
Moses was searching out this wonder. He stood before this bush and then heard his name called out.
Here I AM, he said.
The I AM, who was, who is, and who will always be told him to take off his shoes…because he was standing on holy ground. If we don’t want to stand on holy ground…then leave your shoes on.
He would spend many forty days and forty nights in fasting and prayer from this point on in his life. Even his life was sectioned into three segments of forty. Forty in Egypt, Forty in Midian, and Forty in The Wilderness. One Hundred and Twenty years of finally coming into full VISION – Twenty.
He had aged but was in still FULL health at 120 years of age. He was taken up the mountain so his eyes could see the land that The Children of Promise were going to receive as an inheritance. He told them that he had shown pride in claiming to give them “water” when it was ADONAI who was the ‘water’ flowing from the rock.
He had been in full view of ADONAI than any other Hebrew leaving Egypt….and yet vindication came at the end of his life of not being able to cross over with The Tribes.
In FULLL VIEW and not able to cross. He and his brother Aharon would not cross over, nor Miriam. They each had their own problem with PRIDE. They would be held up as examples that God does NOT have favoritism with sin. All sin has to be dealt with even though God’s love continued with because they continued with I AM.
On the last days of 5779 the scripture readings read all over the world…were titled, ‘Standing’.
Moses was STANDING upright with God when he was taken. He was standing on the TOP of the mountain with God. God knew the exact day that Moses course of life would end, because with his leaving, a new path would begin. It was The Promised Land told to Abraham…and Adam. The land had to come before The Seed could come and plant itself in the earth.
4000 years was planned to germinate the world in order to have a remnant ready to be looking for The Seed to sprout. Adam’s generations germinated the world…The Flood watered that germinating Seed with another man named, Comfort (Noach).
In full view…and a full moon…Nissan 15….the earth split open with earthquakes…a three-hour long eclipse with the largest witness of the earth going completely dark. Cold and darkness set upon the earth with bats coming out of their hiding places…causing people to cover their heads.
By 80 AD The Temple was gone with every stone turned over and fire applied to it. Rome had not paid it’s soldiers and so the booty was The Temple. It’s gold was melted off just as Mosch had the gold melted off the golden calf 1500 years earlier.
Abraham lived 175 years, but the promise of land began when Isaac was born and Abram was 100 years old. Four hundred years from Isaac the crossing into The Promised Land was to take place. The Book of Jubilees states that Abraham and Sarah married in the 40th Jubilee. Thus, around year 2000 (50 x 40) from Adam, we have the marriage of a couple that has had more stories told about them than most other biblical patriachs. And, after all these years we’ve missed the key to The King of Kings return. Right before our faces we see the years. He came at 4000 years and will follow that pattern again. After another 4000 years of sprouting on the earth…That incredible Kingdom described by John comes to earth. Are there other plans ahead of that….definitely.
King David is promised to reign from earth for one thousand years. We know it is his lineage…The Seed Yeshua…will physically reign…ruling with a two-edged sword… the Word of the Lord is that SWORD. Thus, the strongest TORAH is poured out on the earth so that if men even ‘think’ of LUST….they ae guilty. WOW! That says that we’ll walk the streets at night and never fear for our daughter being raped. If you would study the torah given to Mosch you would see that it is so excellent that our earth will live in a wonderful time of peace during the Millenium. One more point…if a man finds a girl and has sex with her…and she does not yell out…he pays the ‘bride price’ to the her father…and they are to marry. And, they are never allowed to divorce. Hmm.. That says…no date rape…because the girl wanted him. Thus, no jail time…just the covenant of marriage.
I stand in awe of all the problems in families that would be avoided if we were just living on these instructions. One day my friends…we must bring this back to the earth. It will empty our prisons.
We’re going to slow down this story a little so we can verify that God works on His schedule and that He works through His written Word. We must remember that The Seed that was to come only spoke what The Father gave him to speak… as was the case with Moses. And, we must consider that many of our Scriptures are the words of men on how they saw what was happening. But, when we have exact words coming from the ‘mouth’ of God…these are for sure words to be heeded.
STANDING – Isaiah 61:10-63:9 is ALWAYS read at the change of the Hebrew New Year. These words should permeate hearts as new beginnings are certain in life. The Hebrew life is considered circular in which things continue on with God influencing it according to His purposes.
Let’s implant Isaiah’s words into our memories…because it is this Hebrew calendar’s New Year, called Rosh Hosanna, that shows us God’s desires for vindication of His children this next year. The year 5780 is known as, ‘The Year of Wonder’. I think we should agree…especially at EIGHT is Chai… LIFE.
Complete Jewish Bible, the bold highlights and headings have been added.
The Year of the Lord’s Favor
Isa 61:1 The Spirit of Adonai Elohim is upon me, because Adonai has anointed me to announce good news to the poor. He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted; to proclaim freedom to the captives, to let out into light those bound in the dark;
Isa 61:2 to proclaim the year of the favor of Adonai and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn,
Isa 61:3 yes, provide for those in Tziyon who mourn, giving them garlands instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, a cloak of praise instead of a heavy spirit, so that they will be called oaks of righteousness planted by Adonai, in which he takes pride.
Isa 61:4 They will rebuild the ancient ruins, restore sites long destroyed; they will renew the ruined cities, destroyed many generations ago.
Isa 61:5 Strangers will stand and feed your flocks, foreigners plow your land and tend your vines;
Isa 61:6 but you will be called cohanim of Adonai, spoken of as ministers to our God. You will feed on the wealth of nations, and revel in their riches.
Isa 61:7 Because of your shame, which was doubled, and because they cried, “They deserve disgrace,” therefore in their land what they own will be doubled, and joy forever will be theirs.
Isa 61:8 “For I, Adonai, love justice; I hate robbery for burnt offerings. So I will be faithful to reward them and make an eternal covenant with them.”
Isa 61:9 Their descendants will be known among the nations, their offspring among the peoples; all who see them will acknowledge that they are the seed Adonai has blessed.
Isa 61:10 I am so joyful in Adonai! My soul rejoices in my God, for he has clothed me in salvation, dressed me with a robe of triumph, like a bridegroom wearing a festive turban, like a bride adorned with her jewels.
Isa 61:11 For just as the earth brings forth its plants, or a garden makes its plants spring up, so Adonai, God, will cause victory and glory to spring up before all nations.
Zion’s Coming Salvation
Isa 62:1 For Tziyon’s sake I will not be silent, for Yerushalayim’s sake I will not rest, until her vindication shines out brightly and her salvation like a blazing torch.
Isa 62:2 The nations will see your vindication and all kings your glory. Then you will be called by a new name which Adonai himself will pronounce.
Isa 62:3 You will be a glorious crown in the hand of Adonai, a royal diadem held by your God.
Isa 62:4 You will no longer be spoken of as `Azuvah [Abandoned] or your land be spoken of as Sh’mamah [Desolate]; rather, you will be called Heftzi-Vah [My-Delight-Is-In-Her] and your land Be`ulah [Married]. For Adonai delights in you, and your land will be married—
Isa 62:5 as a young man marries a young woman, your sons will marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices over the bride, your God will rejoice over you.
Isa 62:6 I have posted watchmen on your walls, Yerushalayim; they will never fall silent, neither by day nor by night. You who call on Adonai, give yourselves no rest;
Isa 62:7 and give him no rest till he restores Yerushalayim and makes it a praise on earth.
Isa 62:8 Adonai has sworn by his right hand and by his mighty arm: “Never again will I give your grain to your enemies as food; nor will strangers drink your wine, for which you worked so hard;
Isa 62:9 but those who harvest the grain will eat it with praises to Adonai; those who gathered the wine will drink it in the courtyards of my sanctuary.”
Isa 62:10 Go on through, go on through the gates, clear the way for the people! Build up a highway, build it up! Clear away the stones! Raise a banner for the peoples!
Isa 62:11 Adonai has proclaimed to the end of the earth, “Say to the daughter of Tziyon, ‘Here, your Salvation is coming! Here, his reward is with him, and his recompense is before him.’ ”
Isa 62:12 They will call them The Holy People, The Redeemed of Adonai. You will be called D’rushah [Sought-After], `Ir Lo Ne`ezvah [City-No-Longer-Abandoned].
We should give praise unto our LORD for the confirmation of our salvation….Yeshua is The Name…that means, SALVATION.
When I stood in a Jewish Synagogue in Las Vegas on The Feast of Trumpets…Rosh Hosanna 2015 I head them say the word, salvation. I was on a business trip with my husband for health and found that directly behind our hotel was a Jewish Synagogue. I rushed over to see if I could have someone blow my shofar, when in fact, I got to spend the next several days in praise with them…at this very special time of Rosh Hosanna.
I say this, to tell you that I was able to witness His name being said because I knew Jesus’ Hebrew name. I turned to a lady standing next to me and shared with her that every time she read or said the word ‘yeshua’, she was saying salvation. She looked at me and agreed that that word meant salvation.
Every Jew is proclaiming ‘the name’ of their salvation when they say, yeshua. Friends, our God never fails any of his children. They just need you to tell them He came, was pierced and his name is, YESHUA!
If you are a person who believes in our resurrected Messiah…then call him by his Hebrew name, Yeshua. Then follow the calendar He is following. If you do NOT understand The Hebrew calendar, you do NOT know how He lived, nor do you understand how He will live and how He wants us to live.
His Kingdom on earth will come when we act (participate) in what was originally meant for our earth. If you teach against this…you are declared to be the ‘least’ in the kingdom. You certainly won’t be a teacher of it…
The year 5780 – A Year of WONDER!
WONDER, n. [G., Gr., to show; and hence a sight; a panic.]
- That emotion which is excited by novelty, or the presentation to the sight or mind, of something new, unusual, strange, great, extraordinary, or not well understood; something that arrests the attention by its novelty, grandeur or inexplicableness. Wonder expresses less than astonishment, and much less than amazement. It differs from admiration, in not being necessarily accompanied with love, esteem or approbation, nor directed to persons. But wonder sometimes is nearly allied to astonishment, and the exact extent of the meaning of such words can hardly be graduated.
They were filled with wonder and amazement. Acts 3.
Luk 1:17 He will go out ahead of Adonai in the spirit and power of Eliyahu to turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous, to make ready for Adonai a people prepared.”
Luk 1:20 Now, because you didn’t believe what I said, which will be fulfilled when the time comes, you will be silent, unable to speak until the day these things take place.”
Luk 1:21 Meanwhile, the people were waiting for Z’kharyah; they were surprised at his taking so long in the Temple.
Luk 1:19 “I am Gavri’el,” the angel answered him, “and I stand in the presence of God. I was sent to speak to you, to give you this good news.
Zechariah would be silenced more than nine months for NOT believing the messenger Gabriel who stood in the presence of God. Elizabeth hide her pregnancy as well. Could such an old woman bear a child? And now the youngest of nieces arrives at her door when she is six months pregnant. Three months Miriam (Mary) stays with Elizabeth learning how to prepare for a baby. These TWO Seeds are planted to rise up…both being killed in their thirties.
Both Elizabeth and Zechariah are from the line of Aharon (priests) both righteous before God observing all the mitzot and ordinances of ADONAI blamelessly. Luke 1
Josiah experiences WONDER in his life when he finds The Torah hidden away in the Temple. It had not been read since Solomon put it away. Young Josiah follows it’s instruction of him (his scribe) writing it out and reading it to the people every year. The King was to have a copy of it with him every day if the people had a question.
The days of Elijah are sung in songs today…but we should also add the name Josiah. John was described as being like Elijah in Luke 1:17. These prophets that declared the ways of The Lord were then seen in Yeshua. At the ‘Transfiguration’ with Elijah and Moses, at the time of the Feast of Tabernacles, Yeshua was to bring to fruition all that any of these prophets had said about him. Were Moses and Elijah confirming he was ready? Had he completed them perfectly and now he had to complete his next tasks to the very hour? Yeshua was the Son of God on a mission that had to be accomplished even quoting words from The Psalms and Proverbs to show it was him that was filling it up. “It is finished’ and ‘My God, My God why have you forsake me” were direct quotes from The Prophets he had to say to reference himself.
The order in our universe makes sense because it was spoken by The Seed about Himself that sprouts up on our earth. Psalm 110, ADONAI says to Yeshua, “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” Yeshua is the strength of The Father.
Four is a big number in that Dahlet is pictured as a door. Yeshua Jesus knocks on the door…but why does the church not answer his knock? Psalm 67:2 God be gracious to us, and bless us. May he make his face shine toward us, so that your way may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations.
Your way is Torah…God’s instruction. Your salvation is Yeshua…who is The Word…The Lliving Word. Hebrewism confirms itself by saying a similar thing but in a different way. David wrote this Psalm about God. He wants God’s face to shine on them and it will come through God’s ways (The Torah). His face can shine on them through God’s Torah because ‘your salvation’ (Yeshua) who also walks out Torah will be known to all the earth…among all nations.
So, whether we try to continue on proving to this world that God works through the Old Testament or not … we should not think our work is futile. There is remnant and that remnant is praying Psalms 123, “I raise my eyes to you, whose throne is in heaven. As a servant looks to the hand of his master, or a slave-girl to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes turn to ADONAI our God, until he has mercy on us.
There is nothing new in the NT that was not declared from the past. All of Scripture aligns so the connective tissue joins and builds our earth….even through calendars, dates and patterns. We MUST keep on keeping on until all believe that God is real and active on our earth.
He is a judge and will avenge His children. His children expect it (as under the altar they cry out and wonder how long Oh Lord…) We can expect to see sinful men removed (disabled) physically from office or from the election poles. We can pray for their souls to be saved as Proverbs 30:10 Never disparage a slave to his master, or he will curse you, and you will deserve it.
- To marry one to another of inferior condition or rank; to dishonor by an unequal match or marriage, against the rules of decency.
- To match unequally; to injure or dishonor by union with something of inferior excellence.
- To injure or dishonor by a comparison with something of less value or excellence.
- To treat with contempt; to undervalue; to lower in rank or estimation; to vilify; to bring reproach on; to reproach; to debase by words or actions; to dishonor.
Thou durst not thus disparage glorious arms.
Thus, it is wrong for us to unequally yoked. It is a dishonor to God and goes against the rules of decency. And, yet we should not treat with contempt…to undervalue anyone and think they are lower than ourselves.
This is an interesting word because as a Believer, we want to love all the world and see them come to Messiah. And, there is consequence for ALL when they do this:
Pro 30:6 Don’t add anything to his words; or he will rebuke you, and you be found a liar.
When humans change God’s words and add DO MURDER when it says not to, they have added to his words. (The State of Missouri does NOT have one abortion clinic as 5780 begins….they are ‘as in the days of Josiah.’ This is to what we MUST return.
When God’s words say that a man should NOT have sexual relations (lay) with another man and the same stands true for woman…and they do it, they come under the condemnation part of Torah (instruction). God already set the ‘good’ standard. Therefore man judges himself as he walks away and sets his own standard. Judgment will fall and we can give honor to God’s justice…and still pray for mercy and grace to be applied if that person repents. Let us remember Mosch, Aharon and Miriam did not cross over because justice had to be prevail or God is not God. But, they are still honored in life and even seen with Yeshua because…as did Mosch…he admitted his sin to the entire congregations before he died. AMEIN!
Pro 30:4 Who has gone up to heaven and come down? Who has cupped the wind in the palms of his hands? Who has wrapped up the waters in his cloak? Who established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and what is his son’s name? Surely you know!
Pro 30:5 Every word of God’s is pure; he shields those taking refuge in him.
5780 – Yeshua – Yoshua – Yoshia. WONDERS for us to search out!
