December 3, 2021:Shalom!!!
And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name [a]Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”
Prokeimenon. Grave Mode. Psalm 98.9,1Exalt the Lord our God. Verse: The Lord reigns; let the people tremble.
The reading is from St. Paul's First Letter to the Thessalonians 5:9-15; 5:24-28
1 THESSALONIANS 5:9-15
For God did not APPOINT US TO WRATH, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him. 11 Therefore [a]comfort each other and [b]edify one another, just as you also are doing. 12 And we urge you, brethren, to recognize those who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord and [c]admonish you, 13 and to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. Be at peace among yourselves. 14 Now we [a]exhort you, brethren, warn those who are [b]unruly, comfort the fainthearted, uphold the weak, be patient with all. 15 See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all.
See My notes from the other day that covers 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11...Verse 12-22 covers the requirements of a harmonious life in community include the honoring of sacramental leadership (vv. 12-14), pursuit of good works (v.15), continual prayer and thanksgiving in worship (vv. 16-18), and proper regard for the prophetic gift and spiritual discernment (vv. 19-22)...It's not proper or right to return evil for evil, Matthew 5:44, gives us the answer which is No, from Yeshua's (Jesus) sermon on the Mount!!! Greek term over you seems to have a liturgical connotation...It's referring to the leader of the congregation in a eucharistic assembly...To recognize is a weaker translation of "to know"...St. Paul writings and words like rejoice, always (v.16), without ceasing or "constantly" (v.17) and give thanks (v. 18) refers primarily to our prayer routine with our Lord in heaven..."Jesus" Prayer" as a way to pray unceasingly from the heart: "O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner..." The Holy Spirit is always constant and active in our lives and it helps us with discernment, testing so we can avoid being misled... see (1 Corinthians 12-14)
Rapture or Marriage Supper of The Lamb(Not Appointed to His wrath): The Two are one and the same, He's coming back for His Bride the Church and true believers we one day join our Lord in Heaven for The Marriage Supper of the Lamb...Many are waiting on a Rapture, me I'm waiting on Yeshua and Marriage Supper of the Lamb that's more exciting to me than false teachings that sale for large amounts of cash!!! Be part of that Supper or you will suffer a bad 7 years the worse since the earth's creation...That doesn't mean life is going to be an easier moving forward we will suffer afflictions but those won't be as bad as the ones coming when 7 years of darkness finally hits us...
-Marriage Supper of the Lamb: Revelation 19:7-9: It's mentioned at least 100 times definitely more times than a translation of 'Rapture" , but I'm not fancy Theologian just a man with a Bible and a relationship with Christ...Marriage Supper of the Lamb is Scripture, Rapture is a term used by a translation out of the Bible, but isn't Scripture...The Rapture or when we RISE UP is just an action, our destination is The Marriage Supper of the Lamb in Heaven and that's what I'm waiting for...
-Yeshua told His disciples I will not drink of this Cup again until we are all together for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb- Matthew 26:29, and Luke 22:18...His Kingdom is getting the finishing touches done now, I can feel it...He's Coming back, man I wish it was tonight!!!
"Final thoughts Marriage Supper of The Lamb has Christ in it, The Rapture takes Christ out of it...Christ above everything just my thoughts, Scripture holds the keys, and opinion and theories move us away from the Lord...Talk about a witch hunt be careful who you follow, Scripture seems the way to go or is it okay to add or even takeaway from the Word?" What does the Lord think about the using the term rapture for teaching, I will pray on it and if I receive the answer I will post it..."

1 THESSALONIANS 5:24-28:
HE who calls you is FAITHFUL, who also will do it.
25 Brethren, pray for us.
26 Greet all the brethren with a HOLY KISS.
28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
Note the liturgical overtones with regard to the corporate meetings...There is (1) the benediction (v.23), (2) intercessory prayer (v.25), (3) the kiss of peace (v.26), and (4) the public reading of the Scriptures (v.27)...The practice of a holy kiss (v.26) very early became a part of the worship liturgy, see (Romans 16:16; 1 Corinthians 16:20; 2 Corinthians 13:12; 1 Peter 5:14)...Just prior to communion, the faithful would exchange the kiss of peace, on one cheek and then the other, to show their reconciliation in Christ...Thus, Christ is in our midst and ever shall be!!! Intercessory Prayer: https://orthodoxprayer.org/Intercessions.html
"No matter the war that is raged against me from the darkness in the heavenly places, I'm winning...Depart from us in the name of Christ, and be casted out in the name of Christ, Yeshua Hamashiach!!! Lead, me, O Lord , in Your righteousness because of my enemies; make Your way straight before me. For there is no truth in their mouth; their heart is destruction, their throat is an open sepulcher, they flatter with their tongue...Make them bear their guilt, O' Jehovah; let them fall by their own counsels; because of their many transgressions cast them out, for they have rebelled against You...But let all who take refuge in You rejoice, let them ever sing for joy; and defend them, that those who love Your name may exult in You... For You bless the righteous, O Lord; You cover him with a favor as with a shield!!!"
A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil[a]treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
Today's Gospel reading:
19 And the chief priests and the scribes that very hour sought to lay hands on Him, but they [a]feared the people—for they knew He had spoken this parable against them. 20 So they watched Him, and sent spies who pretended to be righteous, that they might seize on His words, in order to deliver Him to the power and the authority of the governor. 21 Then they asked Him, saying, “Teacher, we know that You say and teach rightly, and You do not show personal favoritism, but teach the way of God in truth: 22 Is it lawful for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?” 23 But He perceived their craftiness, and said to them, [b]“Why do you test Me?24 Show Me a denarius. Whose image and inscription does it have?” They answered and said, “Caesar’s.” 25 And He said to them, “Render[c]therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” 26 But they could not catch Him in His words in the presence of the people. And they marveled at His answer and kept silent.
The question on taxation is designed to trap Yeshua (Jesus): a "Yes" would turn the Jewish people against Him, while a "No" would bring a charge of treason by the Romans...His answers defeats their cunning and shows that a believer can render the state its due while still serving YHWH (Romans 13:1-7)...As the coin bears the image of the emperor and is properly paid to him, so each person bears the image of The Lord and therefore belongs to Him...Conflict arises only when the state demands that which is contrary to YHWH...
"Jehovah Rohi" The Lord is My Shepherd!!! Christ is King!!! This world is temporary and so is paying taxes, maneuver both worlds, Jehovah's and Satan's crap hole, earth!!!

7 casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
1 PETER 5:7
For the enemy has persecuted my soul;
He has crushed my life to the ground;
He has made me dwell in [a]darkness,
Like those who have long been dead.
Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me;
My heart within me is distressed Answer me speedily, O Lord;
My spirit fails! Revive me, O Lord, for Your name’s sake!
For Your righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble.
In Your mercy cut[f] off my enemies,
And destroy all those who afflict my soul;
For I am Your servant.
PSALM 143:3,4,7, 11, AND 12
"Jehovah Rohi" The Lord is My Shepherd!!!
