Now this is starting to weird me out a little; Last night I started listening to the New Testament read in Hebrew; Book of John. As I checked my USGS EQ monitor which I keep up in a tab, Ka-pow!; up popped the Russian 6.9.
While listening to REVELATION this morning, CA and NV started popping; and they STILL ARE!!!
Go to the site and WATCH it!!!!
While you’re doing that, Start listening to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Nq2aaoL1xg
and see what happens in your corner of the World.
In my quiet time this morning after the dogs were “processed”, some of the slush was shoveled off of the porch, and before Domestic Management woke up to fire up the TV or I lit off my laptop, I opened my KJV to read Revelation. It fell open instead to Isaiah, Chapter 9 and sort of stuck there. You might be familiar with that phenomenon.
To keep it in context, I started a couple of verses into Ch. 8. Ch. 9 is the portion which Rabbi Cahn based a lot of his “Harbinger” book upon, and has prophetic significance throughout the ages. Spiritual rockets started going off from between the pages as I read... It’s been a while since that’s happened!
Starting at about v. 11, we have what I call the “Apocalyptic verses”, precient, perhaps, of St. Yohanan’s later Revelation.
What struck me this morning was how throughout the horrible chastisement of Israel (by extension, the World?) Elohim’s “Hand is stretched out still.”
Not the fist of destruction, but the hand of hope; the option of reconciliation and redemption.
How many times is that promise repeated in this chapter? What is the significance of this pattern or “refrain”?
Might be high time to come out of the “Whore” and reach up for the HAND, do you suppose?
Amin & Shalom
