Shalom Segula (Treasured Possssion)
We thank our Elohim and have great joy with each thought of you!! What a privilege it is to walk along this journey with others who are bound for the promise land!!
“Every good [Tov] thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.” James 1:17.
Oh the depths of this verse!! In last week’s Torah portion we read about the Torah [Yah’s teachings and instructions] coming down with flashing lightening (light) and thunder (Exodus 19:16).
We’re told in a number of places that if we are careful to obey this word, it is our very LIFE!! In Deuteronomy 4:2 it says that we are not to add to or take away from this Word; that tells us that it is a good and perfect gift that doesn’t vary or need to change.
Proverbs 6:23 says that the Torah is the light. We fast forward about 1500 years and we have another light coming down from the Father of lights and that is our Messiah, Yeshua who is the light to the world. Just like the manna was given from heaven to provide bread to the children of Israel, so, too, is Yeshua the bread that came down from heaven.
In a world that is dark and constantly changing, this is comforting as well as good news!! If we look to both the living [Yeshua] and the written Torah [Teachings and Instructions…the Word] as that which has been given to us from the Father of lights, we will not walk in darkness, but have the light of life. They cannot be separated!!! It is the good and perfect gift!!! HalleluYah!!!
Attached is the February Torah Calendar. May the light of Yah’s countenance shine on us as we study His Torah of truth together!!
