ELUL, ON THE 11TH DAY

WHO SHALL BECOME THE GENERATION OF THE UPRIGHT?

August 30th: TODAY WE ARE READING & PRAYING PSALMS 112-118

Ref: ELUL, OUR 29 DAY BANQUET OF PRAYER… TO HONOR THE KING OF GLORY!

The Hebrew word that means “generation” is dor (dore).

We understand the word, generation in English to represent, “a body of living beings constituting a single step in the line of descent from an ancestor, or the average span of time between the birth of parents and that of their offspring.” (Webster’s Dictionary)

In Hebrew thought, ‘dor’ means something more than a biological line of ancestry, or a linear span of time. It is more than the continuity of a bloodline or DNA ancestry.

In Psalm 112:2, the scripture reads, “the generation of the upright shall be blessed”, the scripture is referring to continuity that is not limited to successive generations; grandparent, parent, child. This is about spiritual continuity, that might have to skip a few generations until another arises with the same spirit.

OUR WESTERN MINDSET TENDS TO TAKE OVER… and we can’t hear the scripture from the Hebrew at all. The meaning of ‘generation’ in English, is completely different than the meaning of ‘generation (dor)’ in Hebrew.

In a recent blog I wrote called, Connecting the Dots, we reviewed the genealogy of Shem (Genesis 11). In following the line of descent from Shem to Abraham, what we saw is the anointing transfer from Shem to Eber to Abram. The anointing did not pass “in single steps from ancestors to ancestor.”

The anointing may have to skip a few generations. The anointing has to be caught. If the next generation doesn’t want it, they don’t have to have it.

Not everybody wants it and it’s not for everybody.

Some prefer a life of idolatry, sin, etc., like Ham, Canaan, Terah… and some of their sons.

The dor (generation) of the upright shall be blessed, that’s singular not plural. The blessing might not pass from dor to dor, the way we are accustomed to process the meaning in our minds. However, it will pass to the one in the generation who chooses to carry on the continuity of the blessing. Who will seek the anointing of GOD?

GOD will wait for a ‘dor’ to open, and the King of Glory shall come in!

Psalm 112

Praise ye the Lord. Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, that delighteth greatly in His commandments.

Your seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.

Wealth and riches shall be in your house: and your righteousness endureth for ever.

Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: because you are gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

A good person sheweth favour, and lendeth: they will guide their affairs with discretion.

Surely you shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.

You shall not be afraid of evil tidings: your heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.

Your heart is established, You shall not be afraid, until you see your desire upon your enemies.

You have dispersed, You have given to the poor; your righteousness endureth for ever; your horn shall be exalted with honour.

The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; they shall gnash with their teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.

AMEN

Additional Insights into the Dor…

I’m sure I have not said it enough yet, but words in Hebrew have far more depth than in any other language. Hebrew words have spiritual meaning, numerical meaning, symbolic meaning (pictographically), even the shape of each letter is significant. This means that we basically cheat ourselves out of the richness and depth of meaning, by viewing the Hebrew letters and words in such a common way as we do in English. It’s too linear, too narrow.

For instance, ‘dor’ is spelled with 3 letters, dalet (d) vav (o) reish (r) in Hebrew.

Spelled backward we have the opposite of dor, reishvavdalet (rey’d)

rey’d in Hebrew means to Decline.

Dor means to move forward in continuity vs rey’d which means to go backward and decline. If the generation is not moving forward spiritually, all that remains open to them is spiritual decline. Grow or stay stuck and decline.

Your seed shall be mighty upon earth: is a promise made to those that choose to follow GOD, it’s not a promise to the world at large. They have to choose Him.

Not everyone in Shem’s line chose GOD.

The generation of the upright shall be blessed.

The generation of the upright, nurtures and grows spiritually, accepts the WORD, pursues it, and honors GOD. They continue the bloodline of the righteous.

Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. 1 Cor 15:58

Amen.

SPIRITUAL BASICS: Increasing the Anointing in Your Life…

There are a number of ways to maximize the anointing in your life. Simple and straightforward to explain, yet difficult to accomplish without a strong commitment to self-discipline.

For anyone that wants to increase the anointing over their life, they will have to equally increase their determination to die to self.

And therein lies the rub…

For those who have been in my classes, you will have heard me speak often of my bootcamp training days in the anointing (which really never stops). The biggest challenge for me was “not kicking against the pricks.” Of course, dying to self is the critical first step we all must accept, in order to place ourselves in a position to walk in the anointing.

The Yoke Shall Be Destroyed Because of The Anointing… Isaiah 10:27

I would think that most of our Pastors have labored to teach us the meaning of Isaiah’s message—learning to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.

I’m fortunate enough to have had a grandfather who owned a farm, and I can remember him caring for the animals. Leading his ox by the plow took minimal strength from my grandfather, because his ox was so adapted to the work, he practically led himself.

Obedience is a fundamental standard for qualification.

It was only when I relinquished the reigns, that the anointing was able to flow in my life. In fact, this particular spiritual character flaw is the gage I use to assess whether or not I am resisting the WORD. Being willful and resisting instruction will cause us to miss out completely on what GOD is doing.

When I see my flesh getting in the way, I just stop and obey… I simply do, whatever it is I’m trying to resist doing. When I’m paying close attention, I can catch myself and stop myself from engaging in small infractions… which in turn, prevent disobedience from escalating.

Walking in the anointing means not resisting the small directional adjustments the LORD wants to make in our walk.

Quickly Repent and Keep Moving Forward…

We each know when we are being willful, headstrong, defiant, difficult, etc. Just stop. Ask GOD for a better way. We each know enough of GOD’s Word, in order to be able to respond in a more excellent way, or at the very least, recognize the type of behavior that displeases GOD and stop.

Whenever we do what is personally difficult, but spiritually better for us and another person, that’s a small adjustment worthy of our time to make, in which we can then give honor GOD. In taking this simple small step in dying to self, you will protect the anointing on your life and on the lives of others.

Our Primary Objective, is Not to Grieve the Spirit of GOD.

Our relationship with GOD becomes the principle thing. What are we willing to do to please GOD and to preserve the flow of the anointing in our lives?

GOD calls those who serve Him, His personal possession (Ex 30:31 KJV).

Have you set yourself aside for His personal use? This would mean that we use all of our GOD given talents and abilities for Kingdom purposes.

How can you serve the Kingdom of Heaven and lift the level of holiness?

Both our strengths and our weaknesses can be used for Heavens purpose. Our strengths can be used to advance the Kingdom of Heaven, our weaknesses will help us to rely on the Spirit of GOD.

Just a few more small measures we can take, to draw closer to GOD.

ELUL, ON THE 10TH DAY OF PRAYER. Who Do You Say That I Am?

August 29th: TODAY WE ARE READING & PRAYING PSALMS 105-111

Ref: ELUL, OUR 29 DAY BANQUET OF PRAYER… TO HONOR THE KING OF GLORY!

Psalm 105:

Bless the LORD, Oh MY Soul. LORD You Are Very Great. You are clothe with honor and majesty!

You cover yourself with light as with a garment, and shed light on us…so we can be Your Light on earth! How much You trust us with Your Light.

LORD, just as you have set a boundary that the waters can not pass over, that they not cover the earth again…

The sun does not rise or set, except by Your Word. It shall stay its course,

The moon shall rise and set, there shall be no deviation from its path, the clouds shall be your chariot, You shall walk upon the wings of the wind, You make the angels spirits and a flaming fire, the foundations of the earth shall not be moved…

This far and no further….

At one time the waters stood above the mountains. At Your rebuke they fled, and the thunder hasted away. You appointed the moon for seasons, and the sun knows when to go down…

You hide Your Face and we are troubled…You take away our breath and we die and return to dust… You send forth your spirit and we are created, and recreated, born and born again.

At Your thought, the world renews itself and gives us a home on earth that sustains us.

Now LORD, we have given our leaders enough time, we have looked to them for guidance and found none.. we have waited for their science to solve our pandemic… they asked for 2 years, or 18 months for vaccines so that they can bring this epic-epidemic to an end.

Clearly, they have no solutions…we are to wash our hands and wear a mask. It’s the least we can do, and the best they can offer and I completely understand…they are out of their depth. We have funded WHO’s and CDC’s for decades and the world stands spellbound in the hands of men.

Don’t Let Us Fall Into The Hands of Man ….

Science does need time and good people are working diligently to bring us a solution. Countries are jockeying for position, “Who shall be first with a cure”, as if its a competition. Some are even dismissing the efforts of other countries, saying they don’t have the brain power, wisdom, skill or science to produce a cure. Once again, racial bias wants to dominate and determine not only, who lives and who dies, but what color can find a cure. Some are more concerned with the color of the cure than saving many people alive!

But You Oh LORD, are a shield for us, our glory and the lifter up of our heads

The world needs more time…

But You LORD, can make an end in a day!

Just as you have set the boundaries for the elements, the world, the sun, the moon and the stars, just as You have set the boundaries for the waters, on earth and in Heaven,

Agree with us tonight LORD… set the boundaries for this pandemic,

Dispatch your angels to set every cell of they virus on fire…. we curse every molecule to its root!

We decree and declare, that covid must die… we declare divine reversal..

The world needs 12-18 more months to attempt a best solution,

All we need is a Word from the LORD… All we need is strong agreement.

All we need is 2 or more in complete agreement, steadfast in prayer, consecrated, dedicated believers.

There are nearly 9 billion people on earth. There must be 2 who agree, and will not come into ungodly agreement with a plague. Who will not give it any quarter, any room for expansion.. who will hear every news report and forecast and cast those words down into the pit, like vain imaginations, and every high thought that sought to exalt itself above the knowledge of the Most High GOD!

There must be 2 Witnesses to the Power of GOD in their lives and who can speak that same anointing onto the world! There must be someone healed from the incurable, the impossible, the diabolical. There must be at least two people that can stand with us and shout, this far and no further!

Who will agree with me and call this thing illegal, its reign of terror over, its assignment cursed to the root!

Our sons and daughters and children’s grandchildren shall live. Our parents and grandparents shall not be susceptible, we bind this predator off of their homes, their lives, we decree and declare they shall be still, they shall abide under the protection of the Most High GOD, Everyone assigned in their lives shall proceed with great care and wisdom concerning their care, their lives, their handling…

Nothing by no means shall harm them. Enough!

This thing seeks our lives, to attach itself to our lungs and suffocate.

We decree that covid must die, we suffocate covid with prayer, fasting and consecration, with our faith and trust in GOD.

We suffocate and destroy every assignment of the enemy by faith in the WORD of GOD that proceeds out of our mouth. With every thing the enemy finds foolish in our prayers, we say, “Watch, and see how the LORD, GOD, ALMIGHTY, comes for our word in prayer to perform it! We have seen the Goodness of GOD in the Land of the Living and we shall see His Goodness over and over again!

We draw a line in the spirit realm and everyone under the covering of our prayers, on our prayer list, on our hearts and minds, shall be covered, included, blessed and highly favored!

While praying this prayer, I hear the teaching from 1 Samuel 18 when Elijah said that the GOD who answers by fire, let Him be GOD.

24 And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the Lord: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.

I’m hearing Zechariah 4:2-3, when the angel woke him out of his sleep and asked him, “What sets thou?”

And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof:

 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.

By Your WORD, I ask for healing of the earth, the atmosphere and Your People… All the souls that you have given us to care for. I ask for healing in our every breath. Cleanse us LORD, as You cleanse from all unrighteousness. I ask that You agree with me, with us…with Your People. We put You in remembrance of Your Word, LORD, ask that covid cross no more boundaries.

covid must turn and die.

(Isaiah 43:26. “Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.”)

Zechariah 4:

10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth.

11 Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?

12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves?

13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.

1Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.

We plead for the souls LORD, together, with One heart, one mind and one spirit. All we can offer is prayer, we have no science but The Lord of Host. Who is near and not 12 or 18 months away. ALL OF OUR CONFIDENCE IS IN YOU!

Send us two anointed ones, and even more LORD, that will stand by this prayer, as with the LORD of the whole earth and the GOD who answers by fire, He is GOD!

Amen.

TalkTorahToMe.CAFE. – Who Shall Retain the Finest Flour?

In Pirkei Avos (Ethics of Our Fathers), we are provided a timeless collection of wisdom teachings and sayings from the Rabbi’s and Sages. Teachings that are rooted in the torah and elevated for the refinement of our spiritual being.

In Chapter 5 of Pirkei Avos there is a brief anecdote that I would like to share, which places students in one of four categories.

Ch 5.18 describes four types of students who sit before the sages: A sponge, a funnel, a strainer and a sieve: a sponge, which absorbs [remembers] everything; a funnel, which lets all the information in and just as soon as it enters, they instantly allow all the information to run out [retaining nothing]; a strainer, which lets the wine flow through retaining the sediment (the minor points) and misses all the major, weightier points of the message or teaching; and a sieve, which allows the flour dust to pass through and retains the fine flour.

The sieve has the ability to filter out the sedimentary parts and bits, retaining only the finest flour.

The sponge soaks up everything and remembers, but is unable to process the finer points and put them into action. The funnel will say, “That was a powerful teaching, get the CD”. While they heard the teaching and were fully engaged, they are unable to transmit what they learned.

The strainer collects what they believe are the weightier parts of the teaching, but in the end, they missed the wine and captured the sediment.

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law; judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Matthew 23:23

I am believing that you will be like the sieve, in every facet of your lives. Possessing the ability to recognize the weightier matters in torah, in business, in personal relationships, in every place you need to excel and take dominion (the good kind). I pray that you retain the finer points and replicate and transmit what you have learned to others, for the benefit of man and the Kingdom of Heaven.

In Genesis 2:7, “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”

Man (Adam) was created from the finest dust particles in the earth… Not the common dust of the ground, but stardust, the stuff of the cosmos–all the elements of creation that exist in the earth and our universe.

May you be always the student, who hails from the lineage of Adam, made of the finest particles of the universe, increase in discernment, spiritual reasoning, insight, knowing what to keep and what to cast off, recognizing and retaining the finest flour of which you yourself were created!

But Who Can Resist an Old Fashioned Book in the Hand!

This priceless collection of teachings on honesty, morality, ethical teachings, is quick and easy to read and re-read and refer to as a good companion to Torah Study. There are many treasures to be found, such as it’s focus on character improvement and self-refinement.

ELUL, PRAYERS ON THE 6th DAY…

TODAYS PSALMS: 77-83 TUESDAY AUGUST 25

ELUL, The Month of The Search… Praying The Lord’s Prayer IN HEBREW & ENGLISH

LORD, We offer prayer tonight for all those, including ourselves who have endured trouble. We are all standing before you in the midst of trouble now. Enemies are round about us, especially today.

We pray for defense against enemies seen and unseen, known and unknown, we seek Your help against all enemies, foreign and domestic, hidden or revealed, enemies that we see clearly, even the ones that we refuse to see…

We declare our enemies to be placed into a state of rigidity, we decree their weapons dismantled, their loins loosed, and their plans broken and scattered to the ends of the earth.

Search me LORD and try my reins, see if there be any wicked way in me…

We pray for our souls to be at peace, even times when we struggle to be comforted. We pray for those that are troubled, were troubled, feel troubled, for those who are restless, not sleeping, or so troubled that they can not speak…

May we call to remembrance how we use to sing in the night, being clothed in joy and thanksgiving, May we consider the past days filled with Your Glory, and make a diligent search of of our hearts. May each one of us, question our relationship with You… earnestly examine our relationship with Our GOD, during the Month of Elul.

Do we see you as that friend that will never leave us or forsake us? Do we question the favor of our GOD? Have we not seen your mercy and favor and promises come to pass in our life? Are you not better to us than our dearest friend? Do we ask for you to be gracious to us? to be gracious again? to be generous once more in the night and carry our soul to your throne and speak to us once more? and restore our soul every morning?

Forgive us LORD, for every time we questioned Your Faithfullness, Your Dedication to us, to me. For every time I asked for more, when you have given all.
The Heavens were never shut to us, Your tender mercies have never failed to flow toward us. We have shut ourselves off to them through disobedience and every undisciplined, unaddressed character flaw, and yet, once again, I come to you with my prayer request in hand.

Be generous again… tonight LORD. Return my soul in the morning with memories of being at Your Throne, being in Your Presence, sitting at your feet and learning from you.

Fill me with torah dreams…dreams filled with revelation and wisdom and knowledge… I want to spend the night at Your Feet, in Your Council… In Your Classroom!

I decree and declare Your Torah will come to me in the night, Your Wisdom shall Rest upon my head, upon my pillow.

My hands shall be lifted up in prayer, even as I sleep, My Prayers shall go forth even as my soul rest, I shall speak words of healing and restoration over everyone on my prayer list, I shall speak the counsel of GOD, that you taught me, in the ears of my friends,

I shall rehearse Your Word in the atmosphere, while I breathe once more the Breath of Heaven while I sleep. Restore my soul to hear Your Voice as I did in my youth. Restore to me the wisdom of Torah I had in the womb. Give us Psalms to pray in the night and let us awaken with Torah on our lips. Torah thoughts, Torah dreams, Torah Visions.

May we arise tomorrow, Slow in speech, slow to anger, swift to hear and wise of heart.

We reclaim our voice in prayer, our rest, our joy, our peace, our vision, our insight, our dreams.

We reclaim the joy of our children, even those unborn. We cast down their spiritual strongholds, every demonic stranglehold and spirit of sabotage that has tried to discourage them, any and all oppressive spirits that have sought to capture their joy and peace and futures, is bound today. Every illegitimate, unauthorized voice in their lives shall become silent. You LORD, shut the mouths of lions, every predatory spirit that tries to speak to them shall stutter in their lies, their tongues shall be cleaved to the roof of their mouths, they shall entangle themselves in their lies, deceptions, every snare they set for our children shall ensnare them instead, we pour oil round about their threshold, their door points and decree and declare the enemy shall not pass their door posts, we anoint our children to pray in their sleep, they shall cast out by prayer every ungodly soul ties, we dispatch our prayers to assist them.

They will not be tempted, provoked or lured in by the voice of the enemy. Our children remember the way to The LORDs Sanctuary and shall travel there, even as they sleep.
The Voice of The LORD shall lead them out safely from all darkness and danger, or despair, all the days of their lives.
We Thank You LORD, that You already sent Your Word to bind up every adversary who lays in wait. Nothing shall track or trace them in the spirit realm. We nullify all predatory and stalking spirits. We declare these words into 2021 and beyond.

Photo by James Wheeler on Pexels.com

Every prayer We have ever prayed for them shall arise in their presence, and our GOD, their GOD, shall send them help from the Sanctuary!

They shall arise with the strength to fight the lions and the bears, like David did. They shall arise to slay the lion like Sampson did, and return this time next year to find honey in the carcass. They shall rejoice in the place the enemies tried to attack or blindside them on their path. They shall show up with bread, and turn to call out every uncircumcised phillistine in their valley.

And this will be their 5 smooth stones… our prayers during the Month of Elul, our obedience to GOD, our vow to speak no loshon hara, our love of our neighbor, and our love of our GOD, The Most High.

And ALL OUR PRAYERS will come to pass because we remember the years of the right hand of the most High over us and over our House.

We remember the works of the Lord: surely we will remember thy wonders of old and await Your wonders right now!

We will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.

Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?

Thou art the God that doest wonders: thou hast declared thy strength among the people.

You are a Redeemer of the past, the present and the future. You are Worthy to be Praised.

It’s Already Done

Amen

TalkTorahToMe.CAFE. —DWELLING IN THE TENTS OF SHEM

MAY GOD ALWAYS FIND YOU DWELLING IN YOUR TENT!

Ever wonder how Adam spent his day in the Garden of Eden?

After the sin of Adam, he had to work the ground and prepare his own food. The garden, as they are still able to do, supplied his food. Imagine eating from the purest and most luscious of fruits. It had to be pretty awesome indeed!

We know his assignment in the garden was to “dress it and keep it” Genesis 2:15. We’ve talked about this before, but a question came up that I wanted to take time to review.

I mentioned that Adam was not required to prune or rake, etc. The trees grew on their own, pretty much like they do today. The Midrash teaches, something we might have missed, reminding us that a river went forth from Eden to water it (Gen 2:10), so no need to irrigate the garden.

What was the work that Adam had to do then?

Adam had to occupy himself with something that we don’t readily consider, but something that the scriptures often reminds us to do. “Meditate, day and night, in the study of Torah”

Adam had complete access to the Tree of Life in the midst of the garden. The Tree of life is the symbol of Torah.

Proverbs 3:18. She is a tree of life to those who grasp her, and whoever holds on to her is happy.

Adams work, was Labor in Torah.

Do you recall the scriptures teaching that, “ Esau was a cunning hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was a plain man, dwelling in tents.” Genesis 25: 27

Dwelling in tents, is a Hebrew Idiom for studying the Torah.

Genesis 9:27 tells us, “GOD shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant”.

During this season, there are some Like you, who choose to dwell in their tents… which continues to this day to be an act of faith.

Jacob dwelled in his tent, studying Torah, like Abraham and Isaac before him. He chose to stay focused on the promises of GOD.

The Feast of Tabernacles is around the corner. A celebration of dwelling in the tents as a nation, and a commandment of GOD. LEV 23:42-43. “You shall dwell in booths for 7 Days”.

Remember when GOD dwelled among all of Israel, in the center of the camp when they we in the wilderness?

Jesus is the Master Rabbi, the Son of the Living GOD. He dwells in the Torah and that’s where we still find Him and GOD The Father.

Adam knew he did not have to plant fields and reap crops. The Torah fed his soul and nurtured him spiritually.

It’s the spiritual food we need more than anything today with water that will cause us to never thirst again.

May GOD Always find us Dwelling in the Tent!

Like we are doing now!

ELUL, DAY 3 –YOU GOD, ARE MY GOD

REFERENCE: Prayer Schedule: Our 29 Day Banquet of Prayer ELUL, OUR 29 DAY BANQUET OF PRAYER… TO HONOR THE KING OF GLORY!

HIGHLIGHTING PSALM 63 KJV

You, God, are my God,
    earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you,
    my whole being longs for you,
in a dry and parched land
    where there is no water.

I have seen you in the sanctuary
    and beheld your power and your glory.
Because your love is better than life,
    my lips will glorify you.
I will praise you as long as I live,
    and in your name I will lift up my hands.
I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods;
    with singing lips my mouth will praise you.

On my bed I remember you;
    I think of you through the watches of the night.
Because you are my help,
    I sing in the shadow of your wings.
I cling to you;
    your right hand upholds me.

Those who want to kill me will be destroyed;
    they will go down to the depths of the earth.
10 They will be given over to the sword
    and become food for jackals.

11 But the king will rejoice in God;
    all who swear by God will glory in him,
    while the mouths of liars will be silenced.
