• WE ARE CLIMBING JACOB’S LADDER • Negro Spiritual • He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. (Genesis 28:12) • This delightful children’s song was inspired by the account of Jacob’s dream at Bethel as recorded in Genesis 28:10–22.

• But oh! what a life of faith it is! And what a life of watching and praying it requires. I never felt the need of these disiciplines so much before; but now it seems as if every moment was a moment of danger, and yet thank God, a moment of triumph too in Jesus, my perfect and my present Saviour! •

• “Jesus said unto them, If ye seek me, let these go their way.” • — John 18:8 • Mark, my soul, the care which Jesus manifested even in his hour of trial, towards the sheep of his hand! The ruling passion is strong in death. He resigns himself to the enemy, but he interposes a word of power to set his disciples free.

• I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do • John 17:4 • Was the work of the Master indeed done? Was not its heaviest task yet to come? He had not yet met the dread hour of death. Why did He say that His work was done? It was because He knew that, when the will is given, the battle is ended.

Jesus Christ Morningstar

• REDEEMED • Fanny J. Crosby, 1820–1915 • Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; His love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say this— (Psalm 107:1, 2) • All my theology is reduced to this narrow compass—Christ Jesus came into this world to save sinners. • —Archibald Alexander • The word redeemed implies the idea of a slave standing on the trader’s auction block being offered to the highest bidder.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

• The Red Sea passage, it seems to me, simply typifies the death of Christ as it conquered Satan judicially and released the sinner from the guilt and judgment of sin. It separated the children of Israel from Egypt and introduced them into a life of pilgrimage and trial, just as we are separated from the world and made pilgrims and strangers there.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

• “Ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone.” • — John 16:32 • Few had fellowship with the sorrows of Gethsemane. The majority of the disciples were not sufficiently advanced in grace to be admitted to behold the mysteries of “the agony.” Occupied with the passover feast at their own houses, they represent the many who live upon the letter, but are mere babes as to the spirit ...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

• Interest or identification? • I have been crucified with Christ. Gal. 2:20. • The imperative need spiritually is to sign the death-warrant of the disposition of sin, to turn all emotional impressions and intellectual beliefs into a moral verdict against the disposition of sin, viz., my claim to my right to myself. Paul says—“I have been crucified with Christ”; he does not say, ‘I have determined to imitate Jesus Christ,’ or, ‘I will endeavour to follow Him,’ …

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

• He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake • Ps. 23:3 • He always has a purpose in His leading. He knows where the bits of green pasture are, and He would lead His flock to these. The way may be rough, but it is the right way to the pasture. “Paths of righteousness” may not be straight paths; but they are paths that lead somewhere—to the right place.

The Gospel of Matthew in Its Roman Imperial Context

This collection of scholarly essays tackles a number of questions based on Matthew’s gospel. In what sense does Matthew’s Gospel reflect the colonial situation in which the community found itself after the fall of Jerusalem and the subsequent humiliation of Jews across the Roman Empire? To what extent was Matthew seeking to oppose Rome’s claims to authority and sovereignty over the whole world, to set up alternative systems of power and society, to forge new senses of identity? If Matthew’s community felt itself to be living on the margins of society, where did it see the centre as lying? In Judaism or in Rome? And how did Matthew’s approach to such problems compare with that of Jews who were not followers of Jesus Christ and with that of others, Jews and Gentiles, who were followers?

• STANDING ON THE PROMISES • Words and Music by R. Kelso Carter, 1849–1928 • For all the promises of God in Him are yea, and in Him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. (2 Corinthians 1:20 KJV) • All of us have times in life when a crisis or problem seems larger than we can possibly bear, and we become very fearful.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

• How often Israel marched out in battle array, and found the Lord already fighting their enemies and putting them to flight. And what a striking instance Jericho was of this. They did nothing at all towards conquering that city, except to go through some apparently utterly useless motions, and yet it is very evident that unless they had gone “through those motions,” God would not have given them the victory.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

• “Let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.” • — 1 Corinthians 10:12 • It is a curious fact, that there is such a thing as being proud of grace. A man says, “I have great faith, I shall not fall; poor little faith may, but I never shall.” “I have fervent love,” says another, “I can stand, there is no danger of my going astray.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

• He that eateth me, even he shall live by me • John 6:57 • To feed on Christ is to get His strength into us to be our strength. You feed on the cornfield, and the strength of the cornfield comes into you, and is your strength.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

• Obedience • His servants ye are to whom ye obey. Romans 6:16. • The first thing to do in examining the power that dominates me is to take hold of the unwelcome fact that I am responsible for being thus dominated because I have yielded. If I am a slave to myself, I am to blame for it because at a point away back I yielded myself to myself.

===========================================

These days i found videos and articles on ISRAEL, telling that 150 Rockets from Palestine went into ISRAEL, but 90 % have been destroyed in air by “Iron Dome” batteries. Evenso many have been injured and- all have been shocked around the PURIM festival days.

Why is ISRAEL challenged in this hard way, like no other souvereign country on earth? And how can the people stand this pressure?- The answer is easy: GOD HIMSELF is fighting the battles for HIS PEOPLE. If they obbey in HIM, they keep the stand. The few messianic jewish believers, who take the HOLY SUPPER according to the SHABBATH Meal IN REMEMBERANCE OF Jesus-JESHUA HA MASCHIACH– get new strength in HIM!-

GLORY TO GOD- would the rest of the world take that message and encouragement and stand at the side of their elder brethren and sisters.!!

Because of the deeper insight in analyzing the circumstances of ISRAELian REALITY of FAITH on PURIM 5772- March 2012- it is helpful to look at some specific articles, metioning the relevant Bible verses and political/military facts.

The author does not assume to have expert competence in doing such an analysis, but

As Christian believer he has some ideas, plans and opinion, on these special items.

Pls make up Your mind and take further studies on this points and make Your own opinion,

then take action and surrender to the ONE AND ONLY GOD of HIS chosen People!

• SAVIOR, LIKE A SHEPHERD LEAD US • Dorothy A. Thrupp, 1779–1847 • I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you. (Psalm 32:8) • Divine guidance is the very essence of Christianity. The Bible equates being guided by the Spirit of God with being a child of God (Romans 8:14).

============

• It is an experiential truth to me that Jesus is a perfect, complete and present Saviour from continual sinning. I am happy to confess His wonderful love and marvelous grace whenever I have the chance; for surely such a sinner as I have been was never loved and saved before! And I wish that every one could know the blessed reality and practical value of the truth—that Jesus does save and does deliver,

============

• “We must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.” • — Acts 14:22 • God’s people have their trials. It was never designed by God, when he chose his people, that they should be an untried people. They were chosen in the furnace of affliction; they were never chosen to worldly peace and earthly joy. Freedom from sickness and the pains of mortality was never promised them; ..

============

• The relinquished life • I am crucified with Christ. Gal. 2:20. • No one is ever united with Jesus Christ until he is willing to relinquish not sin only, but his whole way of looking at things. To be born from above of the Spirit of God means that we must let go before we lay hold, and in the first stages it is the relinquishing of all pretence.

=============

• Quench not the Spirit • 1 Thess. 5:19 • In order that you may not quench the Spirit, you must make it a constant study to know what is the mind of the Spirit. You must discriminate with the utmost care between His suggestions and the suggestions of your own deceitful heart. You will keep in constant recollection what are the offices of the Spirit as described by Christ in the Gospel of John.

ALL in ALL we can say: grow in the spirit and in Love and don´t be scattered!

Live in Christ, and you are in the suburbs of Heaven. There is but a thin wall between you and the land of praises. You are within one hour’s sailing of the shore of the new Canaan.

In church History REFORMATION started when obviously the

old traditional style of religion and their business owners and policy treaters tailored it down to the ground and forced masses of citicens to flee from the brudeens of poverty and deep depresssion of their landlords, high priests and democratically elected rulers.

So it is today.

Watch and PRAY!
