2014_03_17 Hebrew

Whew! What a week it has been! In many ways I feel like an umpire should yell, “Safe!,” as I slide into the Sabbath at full speed. Yet it has been such a blessed week full of spirit and mind expanding challenges, blessed peace, and marvelous discoveries. One of those marvelous discoveries was the realization that I never shared about my journey into Hebrew here. So I am going to rectify that right here and right now {said with the accompanying foot stomp required by such a statement…lol}.

Early in 2012 I started doing word studies to help me get a deeper picture of the Word, including the use of concordances to get the meanings of the words used in the original text. And while I was looking at both Hebrew and Greek words, it was the Hebrew that stuck out to me. It just seemed to resonate in my spirit and bring new life to what I was reading. In addition, since I was reading through the Word in chronological order, I spent the better part of the 2012 in the Hebrew section. That is all it took for me to grow attached to the Hebrew language!

Later, as I started to look up facts about the period to deepen my understanding of the context, I developed a fondness for the culture I was reading about. It didn’t take long for me to start to wonder how we as Christians got from there to where we are today. Some of it I knew a bit of already and some of it I didn’t so my curious mind took me through some surface research. By the time I got through the Holy Spirit had made it clear to me that my walk needed some serious readjusting.

So I have been easing my way into a study that will carry me through my Faith as It Is Written. It is not about saying one way is right and another is wrong or declaring that the Law or the Word must be followed this way or that. It is not about works necessary for salvation, for nothing I can ever do could earn me that. It is only by Grace that the confession of my mouth and belief in my heart {Roman 10:9} of all that is written of Yeshua HaMashiach is real and true that I have my salvation!

This is about removing all doubts {Romans 14:23}. It is about making my everyday life be a reflection of all I believe, living with my focus on things above {Colossians 3:1-3} and being set apart from the earthy thing {2 Corinthians:16-18}. It is about finding my place of purity and holiness in Him {2 Corinthians 7:1}. Most of all, however, it is about deepening my connection with Him, growing closer to Him, and improving my walk with Him.

I have enjoyed this journey thus far and I look forward to this new aspect of it. Truth is that I am bursting with excitement! I look forward to sharing these studies, growths, and changes with you as I travel along. I know that God has some mighty things in store! I can feel it circling the Spirit, charging the atmosphere! Beautiful days are ahead!

I pray you a rejuvenating Sabbath {Saturday} and enlightening Day of Meeting {Sunday}. Be blessed beloved! Shabbat Shalom!~

Surrendered to Him~
