Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem








Animals In The Bible







Camel

New International Version (NIV)

…9So the servant placed his hand under the thigh of Abraham his master, and swore to him concerning this matter. 10Then the servant took ten camels from the camels of his master, and set out with a variety of good things of his master's in his hand; and he arose and went to Mesopotamia, to the city of Nahor. 11He made the camels kneel down outside the city by the well of water at evening time, the time when women go out to draw water.…(Genesis 24)


4 “‘There are some that only chew the cud or only have a divided hoof, but you must not eat them. The camel, though it chews the cud, does not have a divided hoof; it is ceremonially unclean for you.(Leviticus 11)


6 A prophecy concerning the animals of the Negev:
Through a land of hardship and distress,
    of lions and lionesses,
    of adders and darting snakes,
the envoys carry their riches on donkeys’ backs,

    their treasures on the humps of camels,

to that unprofitable nation,
7     to Egypt, whose help is utterly useless.

Therefore I call her

    Rahab the Do-Nothing.
(Isaiah 30)


4 John’s clothes were made of camel’s hair, and he had a leather belt around his waist. His food was locusts and wild honey. 5 People went out to him from Jerusalem and all Judea and the whole region of the Jordan. 6 Confessing their sins, they were baptized by him in the Jordan River.(Matthew 3)


16 Just then a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?”

17 “Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.”

18 “Which ones?” he inquired.

Jesus replied, “‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, 19 honor your father and mother,’[c] and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’[d]”

20 “All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?”

21 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

22 When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.

23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

25 When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?”

26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”(Matthew 19)


23 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices—mint, dill and cumin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law—justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former. 24 You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel.(Matthew 23)

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






In The Hebrew Scriptures, The Camel is a Beast of Burden, an Asset of Wealth, and designated as Livestock. Because it does not have a cloven hoof like a cow or a deer (Even though it chews its cud like these clean animals) the Camel is NOT considered Kosher for eating. To this day, camels are a very important part of the economy in the Middle East, including the Arab who charges the tourist only ONE DOLLAR to get on his camel, and FIVE DOLLARS to get off of his camel!

Suddenly, in the Gospels, the Camel takes on a new meaning.The familiar and ubiquitous camel becomes a symbol.

Most bugs were not kosher, and very religious people used to strain their drinks very carefully to make sure even a gnat could not get through. Jesus said that some people were so busy trying to strain out the gnats (the little things) they would swallow a whole camel (a REALLY BIG thing.) How many people in our own day strive to obey every little rule and regulation, and in their pride, hold others in contempt?

There is also an Apocryphal tale of a very narrow gate in Jerusalem called "The Eye of the Needle". A camel could fit through that gate, but only after shedding all its packs and cargo. Again, a brilliant illustration of our lives, burdened with worries, wealth, issues, preconceived notions, belief systems, and cares preventing us from entering "The Narrow Gate".

In our present culture, the camel has become a symbol of burdens and cares that reach their peak in the middle of the week. Hence, the Camel is still on our minds when we call Wednesday, "HUMP DAY."

Come and pray For The Peace of Jerusalem, For Our FRiends in Need, For Persecuted Believers, and For Our Beloved Nation .

Praying,

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12

Believers must collectively come to understand that we are all in a very real spiritual war that appears to be intensifying almost everywhere,

We can no longer stand on the sidelines and think its something far removed from us, it is coming to our doorstep,

We have the authority and the means in the spirit to bind this evil,

“And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 16:19

PRAYERS ASCENDING ON HIGH FOR
THE PEACE OF JERUSALEM!
And for the Preservation of the Valiant
Israeli Nation!





Jerusalem – A "Needle Gate"
"AND, BEHOLD, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,

Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?

Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God."

Amen, Praying LORD, for the tremendous burden that is upon thy people in the face of the nations. May Jerusalem know our comfort and prayers each day. Praying for the Peace of Jerusalem, for our beloved families and friends, for our brothers and sisters facing all kinds of persecution and dismay, for our nation whose leaders walk the wide line of err to our sorrow.
