Matthew 6:9-13

You, therefore, pray like this:

‘Our Father in heaven!
May Your name be kept holy.
May Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us the food we need today.
Forgive us what we have done wrong, as we too have forgiven those who have wronged us.
And do not lead us into hard testing, but keep us safe from the evil one.
For Kingship, power and glory are Yours forever.
Amen’

In the parts preceding, as in this one, I bold the text being highlighted in the part. The “topic” is the prayer Yeshua (Jesus) told us to pray. The title of the series is: Purpose and Provision. What I am saying is that all of what we need to walk with God is provided within the context of this prayer. We find His purpose for us within it as well.

The corresponding highlights this time will be a two-part series, within this series. For the wealth of what Yeshua came to do is found within the highlighted portions. His coming and all He did, ushered forth the Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. His dying on the cross and rising again ushered in the Age of Forgiveness; by which not only God can forgive, but we too, through the Son, now part-take in a heavenly realm. Without the Son, we can not part-take in the Kingdom of Heaven. There is no forgiveness of sin, without Yeshua.

My study on this grouping of words highlighted above was…hard. Forgiveness is a complex subject now, confused and deranged by so many “schools of thought”. Turns out I needed the lesson. So to begin I will start by listing where the Spirit took me in the Word, tying these groups of words together. For I had not realized how they were so relatively connected. To clarify, every word of the prayer is both relative and connected, but these stand in a “class” of their own. I pray the Spirit be sufficient in me to do this justice! To be frank…I am overwhelmed! These two subjects:
The Kingdom of Heaven
Forgiveness
are on their own immense! So here we go!

Matthew 3:2

“Turn from your sins to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near!”
(This is Yochanan John the Baptist speaking)

Matthew 4:17 ~ Yeshua (Jesus) speaking…

From that time on, Yeshua began proclaiming, “Turn from your sins to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near!”

Matthew 5:10 ~ Yeshua speaking…

“How blessed are those who are persecuted because they pursue righteousness! for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.

Matthew 10:7 ~ Yeshua sending the Twelve out…

As you go, proclaim, “The Kingdom of Heaven is near…”

Matthew 16:18-19 ~ Yeshua speaking…

I also tell you this: you are Kefa (Peter – which means Rock) and on this rock I will build My Community, and the gates of Sh’ol (Hades) will not overcome it. I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you prohibit on earth will be prohibited in heaven, and whatever you permit on earth will be permitted in Heaven.

Matthew 18:18 ~ Yeshua speaking…

Yes! I tell you people that whatever you prohibit on earth will be prohibited in heaven, and whatever you permit on earth will be permitted in heaven.

Luke 11:20 ~ Yeshua speaking…

But if I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the Kingdom of God has come upon you!

Luke 22:42 ~ Yeshua speaking…

Father, if You are willing, take this cup away from Me, still, let not My will but Yours be done.

John 18:36 ~ Yeshua speaking…

Yeshua answered, “My kingship does not derive its authority from this world’s order of things. If it did, My men would have fought to keep Me from being arrested by the Judeans. But My kingship does not come from here.

John 20:21-23 ~ Yeshua speaking…

“Shalom aleikhem! (peace be unto you)” Yeshua repeated, “Just as the Father sent Me, I Myself am also sending you.” Having said this, He breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit)! If you forgive someone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you hold them, they are held.”

1 Corinthians 8:12

and so, when you sin against the brothers by wounding their conscience when it is weak, you are sinning against the Messiah!

Psalm 103:19-22

Adonai (the Lord) has established His throne in heaven;
His Kingly power rules everything.
Bless Adonai, you angels of His, you mighty warriors who obey His word, who carry out His orders!
Bless Adonai, all His troops, who serve Him and do what He wants!
Bless Adonai, all His works, in every place He rules!
Bless Adonai, my soul!

Ephesians 4:32

Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted; and forgive each other, just as in the Messiah God has also forgiven you.

Colossians 3:13

Bear with one another; if anyone has a complaint against someone else, forgive him. Indeed, just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you must forgive.

Romans 15:7

So welcome each other, just as the Messiah has welcomed you into God’s glory.

Daniel 2:44

“In the days of those kings the God of heaven will establish a kingdom that will never be destroyed, and that Kingdom will not pass into the hands of another people. It will break to pieces and consume all those kingdoms; but it, itself, will stand forever

Matthew 6:14 ~ Yeshua speaking…

For if you forgive others their offenses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others offenses, your heavenly Father will not forgive yours.
(Note: this is the very next verse after the close of the prayer…Yeshua’s words right after the ‘amen’)

Here are some quotes I found about forgiveness that are popular today. When I say popular, I mean in every circle of society. Even those who say they walk in the Light of Yeshua’s forgiveness. None of these quotes reflect the Kingdom of God in the prayer above. I will bold and italicize the words that “give the wolf in sheep’s clothing” away.
I could comment on each, but its not my voice you need heed in discerning the truth for the lie. Aside from the fact that several of these pull in a righteous anger in my heart…only God can handle :-). In other words…I had some…forgiving to do…the kind that cries out “Forgive us Father, for we know not what we do, say…we know not YOU!”

~ Just because I forgive you, doesn’t mean I want you back. I’m forgiving, letting go and moving on to something bigger and better. ~ Author not named

~ True forgiveness is when you can say, “Thank you for that experience.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

~ Forgiveness has nothing to do with absolving a criminal of his crime. It has everything to do with relieving oneself of the burden of being a victim – letting go of the pain and transforming oneself from victim to survivor. ~ C.R. Strahan

~ Forgiveness is not something we do for other people. We do it for ourselves – to get well and move on. ~ Author unnamed

~ I don’t forgive people because I’m weak. I forgive them because I’m strong enough to know people make mistakes. ~ Author unnamed

~ The truth is forgiveness isn’t about the other person. Its always about us. ~ B. Uyemura

~ Forgive all who have offended you, not for them, but for yourself. ~ Harriet Nelson

~ It takes a strong person to say sorry and an even stronger person to forgive. ~ Author unnamed

~ My problem is I can’t stay mad. I always end up forgiving people even when they don’t deserve it. ~ Author unnamed

~ Forgive those who insult you, attack you, belittle you or take you for granted. But more than this…forgive yourself for allowing them to hurt you. ~ Author unnamed

~ Forgiveness does not always lead to a healed relationship. Some people are not capable of love, and it might be wise to let them go along with your anger. Just wish them well and take care of yourself. ~ Author unnamed

~ I’m a good enough person to forgive people who hurt me, but not stupid enough to trust them again. ~ Author unnamed

I can only say that with everyone one of these quotes, supposedly wise, I could not “hear” these words coming out of Yeshua’s mouth. It is God who gets all the focus and attention in forgiveness, whether we forgive others or not. We can not forgive unless He enables us, forgives us first, and its always about Him…not even a little bit about us. It is for His glory that He forgives. It is for His glory we do too. God is the only One who gets anything “out of it”, and not from us. This “I forgive to get “well”, move on, overcome, survive, be good enough” rhetoric is just plain tit for tat. What is forgiveness that gets given to get?? Not Gods. He is not interested in our “survival” but the complete transformation He alone does in His forgiveness.

Sometimes the best way to know what something is; is to show what it is not. Next part will stick more to what it is and show how the mighty Kingdom of Heaven comes down on earth as it is, in Heaven. 🙂

Purpose and Provision ~ Part 4

April 19, 2013 at 12:52 am (WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , , )

Matthew 6:9-13 ~ Yeshua (Jesus) speaking…

You, therefore, pray like this:

‘Our Father in heaven!
May Your Name be kept holy.
May Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us the food we need today.
Forgive us what we have done wrong, as we too have forgiven those who have wronged us.
And do not lead us into hard testing, but keep us safe from the evil one.
For Kingship, power and glory are Yours forever.

Amen’

Examples:
In Yeshua’s own life here on earth…

Matthew 4:1-4

Then the Spirit led Yeshua up into the wilderness to be tested by the Adversary. After Yeshua had fasted forty days and nights, He was hungry. The tempter came and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, order these stones to become bread.” But He answered, “The Tanakh (scriptures/Word of God) says, ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of Adonai.’

From His disciple, Peter’s own life.

John 21:16-17

A second time He said to him, “Shim’on Bar Yochanan (Simon son of John – Peter), do you love Me?” He replied, “Yes, Lord You know I’m Your friend.” He said to him, “Shepherd My sheep.” The third time He said to him, “Shim’on Bar-Yochanan, are you My friend?” Shim’on was hurt that He questioned him a third time: “Are you My friend?” So he replied, “Lord, You know everything! You know I’m Your friend!” Yeshua said to him, “Feed My sheep!”

In order to fully understand Brother Peter’s interaction here we must note three things:

1) Most know Peter had denied Yeshua three times only days ago when this conversation took place. The significance of Yeshua having him say three times, essentially, “I will not deny You again.” was profound!

2) The real power comes from knowing the prophetically fulfilling moment this exchange signifies! Again, everything Yeshua did and said is full of purpose and provision!

Ezekiel 34, this entire chapter is needful to read, and is lengthy so I will not type it all here. This is where the confirmation of another of the Father’s promises is fulfilled and kept. Note the language…sheep, food, feed. Its all imagery…but easy enough to see why He used the word-pictures He did. And hence why Yeshua used the same with Peter. My guess is that Peter’s hair stood on end when the full implications of that exchange fell like dust settling after a storm! Mine does 🙂

3) Peter didn’t start a “soup kitchen”…but a Continued Kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven!

So is the food in verse 11, physical or spiritual? Well, to be sure it can apply to both. We can count on Adonai to provide for the physical body, as the rest of Matthew chapter 6 goes on in vivid detail. Yet taken as a whole, this prayer is about the Life that lives on into eternity, the life that matters and therefore, the Life that needs substance at the hand of God. Yeshua (and many many others) have gone without physical food on a daily basis. Its not necessary to feed the stomach everyday…not to live. But, there is a food we can not live without from one day to the next.

Matthew 6:25 ~ Yeshua speaking…

“Therefore, I tell you, don’t worry about your life – what you will eat or drink; or about your body – what you will wear. Isn’t life about more than food and the body more than clothing?

John 4:31-34

Meanwhile, the talmidim (disciples/followers) were urging Yeshua, “Rabbi, eat something.” But He answered, “I have food to eat that you don’t know about.” At this, the talmidim asked one another, “Could someone have brought Him food?” Yeshua said to them, “My food is to do what the One who sent Me wants and to bring His work to completion.”

John 6:27; 32; 35 ~ Yeshua speaking…

Don’t work for the food which passes away but for the food that stays on into eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For this is the One on whom God the Father has put His seal.

Yeshua said to them, “Yes, indeed! I tell you it wasn’t Moshe (Moses) who gave you the bread from heaven. But My Father is giving you the genuine bread from heaven; for God’s bread is the One who comes down out of heaven and gives life to the world.”

Yeshua answered, “I am the bread which is life! Whoever comes to Me will never go hungry, and whoever trusts in Me will never be thirsty.”
*** all of John chapter 6 is about the food in the Lords prayer.

Look at all the language used in these passages!! It is the Lord’s Prayer on steroids! Detailed! the Father; Kingdom/heaven; bread/food!! Every word that proceeds from His mouth is the food we need today!

If you ask for anything and it is within the Father’s will…it shall be given to you“…

And sure enough…Yeshua’s Words are a ready meal for the eating…requiring not a cent to be spent! Like the loaves and fish…multiplying over and over to the point where none can consume them all! Feeding His sheep! Shepherd of Israel, Word of God, Bread of Life…food we need today.

Matthew 6:9-13

You, therefore, pray like this:
Our Father in heaven! May Your Name be kept holy.
May Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us the food we need today.
Forgive us what we have done wrong, as we too have forgiven those who have wronged us.

Amen.’

Focus for part 3:

> the word and meaning of Name

> the word and meaning of the word Father

~ Name ~

When studying the scriptures it has become a absolute must that I ask the Spirit to lead me to Yeshua (Jesus) – the Teacher for direction and leading to the Father (El Elyon). For it is Adonai Elohim (the Lord God) who has decreed that He be made known. He is known by His Name. Not like I, Lisa, am known by mine. There are soo many Lisa’s, it is my last name that distinguishes my name from all the others and not completely at that. For there are surely more than one of us in combination. The meaning of my name is consecrated or devoted to God. For which, I pray, I honor; yet not everyone named Lisa desires such.

Names are not given as they used to be; **where a name was a representation of whom the individual is/was, based on their character and function. The nature and character of God is found within His Names, which are lost or obscured in our translations and Greek/Western view of scripture. Just as a name can give us a clue about the individual’s character, we can also find some interesting clues about the character of the family lineage. Below is a list of the sons of Adam, the lineage of the promised Messiah, as found in Genesis chapter 5 with the Hebraic meaning for each name:

Adam  – man
Seth – appoint (set in place)
Enosh – mortal (also means man, as man is mortal)
Kenyan – dwelling place (literally a nest)
Mahalalel – light of God (also means praise as it illuminates another)
Jared – comes down
Enoch – dedicate
Methuselah – his death brings
Lamech – despair
Noah – comfort

When the meanings of these names are combined, we discover a very interesting prophesy of the coming Messiah based on the functional descriptions of the names of Adam’s descendants. (Get ready to make that ‘whoooaa’ sound 🙂 )

Man appointed a mortal dwelling, the light of God will come down dedicated, His death brings the despairing comfort.

I.E. Yeshua, Salvation, God with us, Lamb of God, (Jesus) **taken from His Name Is One; An Ancient Hebrew Perspective of the Names of…God. by Jeff A. Brenner**

Kinda makes you look at all those names listed in Matthew and wonder, huh? I recommend you look into it…its just as jaw dropping! Everything God does is FULL of meaning/function/purpose! Not a jot or tittle is “simply placed to “fill in a blank space””.
His Name is above all names! Full of character and function with the purpose of being known!

I highly recommend you getting the book referenced above and below…you will simply just be awed from front to back in the detail of the God we serve! 🙂

~ Father ~

The Hebrew meaning of the word Father is: Strength of the house.

This stands in much conflict in our day due to the fact that somehow the mother has gotten this reputation. The woman of a house is most often the most revered. Not without reason, us women have worked hard to project this persona into the family dynamic. Women do have a “strength” but not like a father. (This is another subject, for another time)
**The following comes from the Jeff Brenner book listed above but abbreviated. The section on God – the Father is pages long and I need not repeat it all.** Looking at the language from a Messianic perspective I have changed the small s in sons to caps in order to get straight to the point. All things such as families, marriage, community and so on are a representation of the Father’s will on earth as it is in heaven.

**The Father builds His family through His Son(s). It is the responsibility of the Father to teach and instruct His Son(s) in family matters so that when the time comes for them to lead the family, they will do so according to the will of their Father.

As sons of God, it is our responsibility to listen and learn from our Father who is in heaven so that we can grow to follow in His will.** (page 83)

So when we say ‘Our Father’ we are identifying that we no longer “look horizontally” for guidance and instruction but “vertically”. We are adopting a heavenly family dynamic, in which God is the strength of our house.

**The Father of the household manifest many of the characteristics of God to His family. He is the el – power, the older experienced ox that is yoked to His children to teach them. As the adon – lord of the family it is His responsibility to bring life to the family through His own work, teaching and decision-making. He is the mela’ak – messenger, whose responsibility is to bring the messages of God to His family. He is the moshia – deliverer of His family by protecting them from evil, both literal and figurative. As the borey – creator He creates new life. He is the qanah – jealous one by guarding over His family. He is to be qadosh – set apart (holy) from the world and devoted to God and His teachings.** (page 115) again I replaced small letters for caps to emphasize the Father in heaven. The only perfect Father at all these things.

The following scripture wraps up this concept of Fatherhood perfectly.

Isaiah 63:15-16

Look down from heaven; and see from Your holy, glorious dwelling.
Where are Your zeal and Your mighty deeds, Your inner concern and compassion?
Don’t hold back, for You are our Father.
Even if Abraham were not to know us, and Israel were not to acknowledge us, You, Adonai, are our Father, our Redeemer of Old is Your Name
.

As we can clearly see…when we say ‘Our Father…may Your Name be kept holy…we are saying a wealth of things! Yeshua (Jesus) knew all these things when He taught this prayer! To Hebrew disciples who knew this language well and still they did not totally “get it” right away. The vastness of God’s detail and purposes are so that our finite minds must stay still and “chew” on His words for a time just to get a glimpse! It is full of this kind of knowledge and anticipation that Yeshua gave us these words as a “doorway” into prayer. He knew His/our Father, He knew that the depth and width of all the Father longs to teach us! He also knew that the Father, Himself, will take full responsibility for teaching us all we need to know…even if it takes an eternity!!

May His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven…today…now!! Amen!

Purpose and Provision ~ Part Two

March 9, 2013 at 12:00 pm (Remodeling the Mind) (, , , , , , , , , )

Matthew 6:9-13 ~ Yeshua (Jesus) speaking…

You, therefore, pray like this:

Our Father in heaven!
May Your Name be kept holy
May Your Kingdom come,
Your will be done on earth as in heaven.
Give us the food we need today.
Forgive us what we have done wrong,
As we too have forgiven those who have wronged us.
And do not lead us into hard testing,
But keep us safe from the Evil One.
For Kingship, power, and glory are Yours forever
Amen.’

Notice how there are no I’s or me’s in this prayer?? It never struck my “see chord” much over so many years of repeating and reviewing this prayer. I did, what I believe most do, assuming Yeshua (Jesus) was addressing the disciples (many) and thereby using the us’s and we’s so as to include all (including all who would read later).
Yet as I was led sometime ago to sit at Yeshua’s feet over each word; being taught anew to redefine them and remodel my mind to their keeping; something more seemed to be emphasized. Looking over Yeshua’s words in general, especially in the book of John (ok, I admit this is my favorite gospel 🙂 ) I was struck anew how little Yeshua emphasized Himself and He – being the Father’s Son, that’s saying something! He instead kept “throwing” everyone’s gaze back to His Father, giving Him credit for…everything.
I re-read the prayer and the Spirit led me to the emphasis what you see above. This prayer is not about me/us! Its meant to remind me/us exactly that! Ahhh, humility 🙂

Now I am all for those who say the Spirit leads them to make this prayer personal; indeed all scripture becomes personal when we follow Yeshua. Though a word of caution may be due. The brightest light, strongest pull, and greater significance to all we do must be the Father, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, Yeshua’s Father, the Spirit’s Sender, our Father in heaven; whose name is kept holy. It’s the reason I make no claim for “my” words on this blog. If it has not come from me, can not be created by me, its not mine! Truth came/comes from no man/woman in originality; only God can manufacture the truth. And…He gives it to all! Yes, the wicked and righteous alike. So no speciality can be made for any one Child of God. It is our flesh, that seeks special significance apart from being part of the body. Wow! What a contrast to today’s rhetoric:

Find your purpose.
Believe in yourself.
Dream your dream.
Speak your mind.
Stand up for yourself.
You matter.

The list goes on and on. One of the Father’s greatest disturber’s of “the peace” throughout the Bible was His offense to our need to make ourselves stand out. He makes absolutely no apology about emphasizing it’s not about us! For us, yes. About us, no. I believe this is one of the greatest hindrances to people’s desire to follow God of all time. It’s where every single sin has it’s origin. You could say satan’s motto is “Look how god made Me!”

Now notice the order.

Give us the food we need daily,
Forgive us for the wrongs we have done, as we forgive those who have wronged us.
And lead us not into hard testing, but keep us safe from the Evil One…

The reminder of how we tend to participate in the larger picture. We as a whole body. Then the request to keep us safe from the evil one. This is no coincidence in spoken order. Everything….everything God does has profound purpose! Everything Yeshua said, how He said it and in what order promotes the keeping of the Father’s name (character) holy. Its meant to teach us more about the character of God. So we know Him more. This is the soul purpose of His every word and deed; the motive of Yeshua’s heart. His complete, undelayed obedience to the Voice of the Father who led Him in all He did. The Father really is/was His GPS unit (God’s Perfect Salvation). Though way more reliable and trustworthy than any satellite operated device by far. One could say we come with such a GPS as a standard feature. Its the evil one’s intention to disrupt and convolute this GPS with temptations hard wired into the rest of our “mother-boards”. It’s God’s intention to bring us home through testing and proving this GPS units trustworthiness as we listen more intently to Him. For those who have used the man-made version of a GPS, you know this device only gives you the next step in the route verbatim. Not every step all at once. Thankfully :-). How nice of God to make sure even this device would reflect His ways; though it’s doubtful the “designers” were aware of it. This God-given gift is held by the hands of the Spirit. The “signal” is kept strong through Yeshua. Nothing can separate us from Him! The signal can never be severed, only the directives ignored. Make no mistake the Father’s will is being done and He is intend on guiding us home!

image

Think of something that tries your patience; 7 seconds is trying, 7 minutes borders on severe disturbance, 7 hours is a flat out testament to the fact that you are not God but fully human only. Now recall that the minimum amount of time we know of for all of this earths existence is 7000 years. Seven thousand years of more human failure than any accountant could try to conceive; failure to see the obvious…God. In little and big ways, in nature, in the sky, in all He has created…ugh! we are a hard sighted people! There can be absolutely no doubt that God must be intent on bringing His precious lambs home! When we ignore a directive; just like the man-made GPS; God immediately recalculates the route. You can almost hear Him say “Off route, recalculating…”
…Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven

There’s a power hinted at here and in other passages…connected to forgiveness and prayer. Connected too, to the giving of the Holy Spirit.

John 20:21-23 ~ Yeshua speaking…
“Shalom aleikhem! (peace be upon you) Yeshua repeated. “Just as the Father sent me, I Myself am also sending you.” Having said this, He breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Ruach HaKodesh! (Holy Spirit)” If you forgive someone’s sins, their sin’s are forgiven; if you hold them, they are held.

Matthew 16:15-19 ~ Yeshua speaking…
“But you,” He said to them, “who do you say I am?” Shim’on Kefa (Simon Peter) answered, “You are the Mashiach (Messiah), the Son of the Living God.” “Shim’on Bar-Yochanan (Simon son of John),” Yeshua said to him, “how blessed you are! For no human being revealed this to you, no, it was My Father in heaven. I also tell you this: you are Kefa (Peter – which means ‘Rock’) and on this rock I will build My Community, and the gates of Sh’ol (hell) will not overcome it. I will give you the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you prohibit on earth will be prohibited in heaven, and whatever you permit on earth will be permitted in heaven.”
**See also Matthew 18:18

Confirmation of Yeshua’s internal “operating system” – John 12:49-50 ~ Yeshua speaking…
For I have not spoken on My own initiative, but the Father who sent Me has given Me a command, namely what to say and how to say it. And I know that His command is eternal life. So what I say is simply what the Father has told Me to say.
** See also John 14:8-26…this includes much about the “operating system” of the Holy Spirit.

In conclusion:

> We say the we’s and our’s for a powerful reason in this prayer. Even if we don’t fully comprehend it, it was given us to say as it is, and we must obey. Trusting the Father and His knowledge of that which He gives. Respect it, its no small thing.

> Also with the emphasis on the Father, the YOUR Kingdom, YOUR will, YOUR Name (character). A reminder of who’s who, and what we are really for. A glory that has never, will never, can never be ours, but His and His alone.

> A focus on the order of all things Yeshua says, asking Him why…desiring the purpose behind each thing He said or did; for the purpose of knowing the Father more, not our significance. This comes in a totally different dimension than “getting to know God”. We desire to know Him…just to know Him.

> Lastly we see how we can be kept within His holy will, by continuing to listen to Him, obeying what He says without hesitation, and finding His voice more and more trustworthy in the doing of His will. This protects us, guides us, brings us Home. Its not a robot-making procedure. Its a safe-keeping…insurance…if you will. Actually the only insurance one can invest in that fully guarantee’s all it offers…forever. 🙂

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
