Come Thristy

Bought water today for upcoming road trip to a women’s conference.

Thought about how often it feels like we go from waist deep in the Word, to the feeling of barefooted, walking through a dry creek bed. Anyone?

Went looking for “thirst” in Hebrew.

#6770, tsame’. The letter pictures speak this to me. (Gosh, I love Hebrew)

On my knees, hands lifted in prayer and praise, “thirsty” for the First love of my life, Jesus.

Tsadik, Mem, Alef. (Reading the letters pictured right to left)

I wonder if the Lord allows us to get a bit “dry” to prepare our empty vessel for an overflowing drink of water.

Can’t wait Lord, fill me up!!

“Ho! Everyone who thirst,
Come to the waters;
And you who have no money,
Come, buy and eat.
Yes, come, buy wine and milk
Without money and without price.”
Isaiah 55:1 NKJV

Thirsty – tsame’ – Tsadik, Mem, Alef

“Sigh in silence, make no mourning…bind your turban on your head, and put your sandals on your feet…and do not eat man’s bread of sorrow.” Ezekiel 24:15-17 NKJV

“Put on your sandals, your new hat too.

I AM about to change your thinking,

And make your address new.

So don’t walk about discouraged,

Covered in shades of blue.

Trust in Me,

I have good plans for you.

 

Stay away from man’s bread of sorrow,

Eating up your today, and worrying about tomorrow.

Your blessings are here, and in this hour.

Embrace this “season” of new,

For I have equipped you.

Not by your will or strength, but by

My Love and Power!”


After much Word and prayer, my Jesus has led me here. Embracing a new “season” where in the “natural” makes no sense or reason. But this I know is sure, listening to His Voice, I am embracing a new open door.

Crouching Donkey

dscn0701

“Issachar is a strong donkey, crouching between the sheepfolds.” Genesis 49:14

 

Yesterday, I went looking for the first mention of the word “strong”.

It actually means, “skeleton of the body, and bones.”

I thought this strange.

 

This morning, the verse came to mind again, only the word “crouching”.

In the Hebrew the word is actually #7257 – “lying”.

 

Issachar was Leah’s 5th son.  Five reflects –  Favor and Grace!

“And God listened to Leah, and she conceived and bore Jacob a fifth son…Issachar.” Genesis 30:17

Of the tribe of Issachar it is said they are

“Mighty men of valor” and “Ready for war”.  1 Chronicles 7:1-5

Of all the tribes, Issachar…

“of the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do…” 1 Chronicles 12:32

 

Back to “crouching.” The word comes from the root Hebrew word #7257 “lying”

“Rabats” or Reysh, Bet, Tsadak.

As I thought on the word picture,

  • Man’s (Reysh) dwelling (Bet – our heart and body) in praise and prayer (Tsadik) – between two sheepfolds.  (Tsadik is one of my favorites because it looks like the one of kneeling or standing in praise)

Issachar is crouched down in a position of praise and prayer between two sheepfolds (our family and the world).

And of “strong” – Issachar knows

To his bone,

down to his core,

to the marrow of his “skeleton”

only through Praise and Prayer, through the Favor and Grace of Jesus Christ,

Protection for our family,

Discernment and understand for the times we live in.

 

And knowing, in this position of prayer and praise,

When troubles come upon us, we know…

What we “ought to do”!! Wisdom and Discernment

 

“Issachar is a strong donkey, crouching between two sheepfolds.”

Even when the whole world thinks we are a “donkey”; we are Mighty men of valor and ready for war in the position of praise and prayer!!

 

Mighty men and women of God,

Praise on!!

I wondered, “What is the Hebrew definition for ‘blue’?”

An obscure idea of a “peeling off by concussion of sound”; a scale or shell (example a mussel) stemming from the unused root word “Shacal” which is the “roar of a lion”.

Blue – the roar of a lion.

29453_lion

The Lion of Judah


Could it be,

the woman with the “issue of blood,” seeing Jesus passing by,

heard the “roar of the blue” from the hem of His garment?

Jesus would have worn something similar to this as His prayer shawl. The tassels is also known as the "wing" as in Malachi 4:2 "healing in its wings."

“The LORD said to Moses, “Speak to the people…and tell them to make tassels on the corners of their garments…and to put a cord of blue on the tassel of each corner.” Numbers 15:37-38 (ESV)

On hearing, the “scales” fell from her eyes to see,

And reaching out, she touched her Healing.

“For she said to herself, ‘If I only touch His garment, I shall be made well. But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, “Be of good cheer, daughter, your faith has made you well.” Matthew 9:21-22

The "blue" was from the cerulean mussel, the rare color was used to dye the tassels. This prayer shawl is an example only of what the "woman" would have been reaching to touch on Jesus's hem. I wept like a baby when I purchased this in a shop on the Sea of Galilee.

Daniel – The Right Hand of Favor – Yood

“And behold, a hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees.” Daniel 10: Verse 10

This was the verse that opened my eyes to see the Hebrew letters.

“a hand touched me…”


 

Yood - 10th letter Word Picture: Closed (right) hand Meaning: Work, a deed, to make, effort
Yood – 10th letter
Word Picture: Closed (right) hand
Meaning: Work, a deed, to make, effort

Yood – Is the smallest of the Hebrew letters but very significant.

It can represent:

“the hand of God”

“the work of God”

“the favor of God by His hand”

Jesus spoke,

“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father.” Matthew Chapter 10:29

DSCN2975

Matthew Chapter 10 – Ten

Nothing is insignificant to the Father. So much so, Jesus also said,

“For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished.” Matthew 5:18

He was speaking about the letter Yood.


It’s numerical value is 10. The number 10 represents order:

The Ten Commandments

The 10 generations of Adam to Noah.

God delivered Israel by the 10 plagues.

A minyan (a group of 10 men) is required for prayer in the synagogue.


“And behold, a hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees.” 

Daniel had the “hand of God” lift him up.

God gave Daniel favor – Daniel 1:9

Yood is the right hand – or the hand of favor, by lifting Daniel up.

God was “working” on Daniel’s behalf.


“Strength and comfort commonly come by degrees to those that have been long cast down and disquieted; they are first helped up a little, and then more. After two days he will review us, and then the third day he will raise us up. And we must not despise the day of small things, but be thankful for the beginning of mercy.” quote by Matthew Henry 


 

God does not,

despise our small frames,

or trembling knees.

He extends His hand of

love and favor.

Picking us up from despair;

depression;

sickness;

loneliness;

and with His mighty

right hand works on our behalf!


And like the “Feature photo” of a tambourine depicting Miriam, the sister of Aaron, who took a tambourine in her hand, went out (with all the women) singing and dancing after the LORD, Who (with a Mighty hand) brought back the waters of the Sea.

Delivering the people from the ten plagues and bondage. Exodus 15:19


 

“On the days when I feel small,

Fighting the battle on my own.

I remember,

You are my Deliverer;

With Mighty Closed Hand of

Yood!”

Yood – the 10th letter of the Hebrew Alphabet.

The Ninth letter “Tet” has a meaning of “surround”.

IMG_20160331_185837826_HDR

as in the “twisting” of a vine growing up towards the light.

IMG_20160331_190127234

Or the “encircling” to keep something together, and loose ends from falling apart.

IMG_20150404_170307841

I especially like this example – the “twisting” of braided Easter bread with icing on top! Sweet!


 

 

The Ninth letter of the Hebrew Alphabet is the word picture of a “snake”.

Word picture: Snake Meaning: Surrounding, Encircling, Twisting, Coiling
Word picture: Snake
Meaning: Surrounding, Encircling, Twisting, Coiling

Definitely NOT my favorite word picture.

But, as much as I do not like the picture or the idea of a “snake”, there is still no denying the existence of evil.

Hence, even in the letters, “Tet” can be used to help give understanding and wisdom in the “spiritual” and “natural” realm.


 

 

What of Daniel in verse 9 of Chapter 10? 

“Then I heard the sound of his words, I fell on my face in deep sleep with my face to the ground. 

Daniel was “encircled, surrounded” in a deep sweet sleep!

For Daniel, in the context of the retelling of his story, he has just seen the full face of Jesus in verse eight – Chet.

Chet - 8th Hebrew letter. Word Picture - Fence Meaning: - inner-room, protection, private, to separate, full-face
Chet – 8th Hebrew letter.
Word Picture – Fence
Meaning: – inner-room, protection,

He didn’t fall into the “encircling” or “twisted” fear of the “snake”;

But into the sweet sleep of the beloved as one who has seen

And felt the surrounding peace of the beauty of Christ.


 

If you are tossing, “twisting”, and

feel as if your loose ends are coming apart;

May you as one who hears,

“the sound of His words…”

“I have come that (you) may have life, and that (you) may have it abundantly.” John 10:10 

“Encircle” your thoughts and mind to

love of Jesus

Who wore the “twisted” vine of thorns

#9 Tet crowncropped - Tet

to give you peace, free from fear 

“He gives His beloved sleep.” Psalm 127:2

for He is the

Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

Reysh – 20th Hebrew Letter

The Twentieth letter is the “side” view of a man or a person

Then in makes sense, “Chet” is the front view of a person.

And the person I am looking to find in Scripture is Jesus!


 

“…for she said to herself, “If I only touch His garment, I will be made well.”

Jesus turned, and seeing her He said,

“Take heart, daughter, your faith has made you well.” Matthew 9:21-22

Jesus turned and she saw His full-face.


 

Jumping into the 8th verse in Daniel…what did Daniel see?

Daniel retelling his story in Chapter 10…“So I was left alone and saw this great vision, and no strength was left in me. My radiant appearance was fearfully changed, and I retained no strength. Daniel Chapter 10: verse 8

Daniel saw the face of Jesus – private vision, full face of Jesus.

Chet - 8th Hebrew letter. Word Picture - Fence Meaning: - inner-room, protection, private, to separate, full-face

 Inner-room, 
private, full-face vision of Jesus!

In Scripture,

Protection – Eight people were saved aboard Noah’s Ark.

Covenant – Jesus was taken up to the Temple for dedication on the eighth day.

Kingship – David, a man after God’s own heart was the Eighth son of Jesse.

Joyous – the Feast of Booths is celebrated for Eight days.

Ministry – Aaron, the high priest was called by Moses on the Eighth day of preparation.


 

I pray as we continue through Daniel in Chapter 10, 

your eyes would be opened to see the 

beauty of Jesus in Old Testament prophecy of Daniel.

In Confidence shall be your strength

Pre-dawn

I woke this morning thinking about Jesus’ week. Recalling, Tuesday if my memory is right, was the day Scripture was “quiet” about Jesus’ activities. No mention at all.

I wondered if Jesus, knowing all that was coming in the next few days, chose to stay in Bethany with His friends and disciples on last “quiet” day. A place of rest.

“In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.” Isaiah 30:15 NKJV

The ESV uses the word “trust” in place of “confidence.

Confidence – the place between our heart and Jesus.

“In quietness and confidence/trust shall be your strength.” Isaiah 30:15


 

So I think as Jesus spent the day “quiet”, I’m going to “guard my heart” in His inner protection and strength, trusting in the One Who went all the way to the Cross for me.

blessings today my friends and neighbors.
