The Ninth of AV
An Appeal To . And A Prayer For Israel Cleve Sharp
The spies returned to the children of Israel with an evil report of the promise land on the Ninth of AV thus the sentence of death was imposed by the "Most High" The first temple (Solomon's) stood for 375 years before the Babylonians destroyed it in 586 BC on the Ninth of AV. It was rebuilt 70 Years later in 516 BC. That temple stood for approximately 586 years, until the Romans destroyed it again in 70 AD on the Ninth of AV.
The Ninth of AV is a reminder that the Jerusalem temple is desolate. The Ninth of AV is a reminder of God's Judgment According to the Talmud the first temple was destroyed for "idol worship, sexual immorality, and bloodshed And according to the Talmud the second temple was destroyed because of "the causeless hatred one for the other"
To the prophet Ezekiel the Lord said, "show the house to the house of Israel, that they may be ashamed of their iniquities" Ezekiel saw the house of Israel as a valley of dry bones cut off from their parts. What part are they cut off from?
Haggai prophesied because the house of the Lord lies waste the land is waste. You cloth yourselves but you are not warm. You earn wages but find the bag you put them in has holes. Your dreams fail! Your vision fails! You eat . but are not satisfied You drink . but you are still thirsty!
There is bread that satisfies There is a cup that fills There is a vision that doesn't fail
While Zerrubabels temple stood in the day of Herod, Pontius Pilate, and Caiaphas the High Priest of Israel a third temple was built.. made without hands, a spiritual house, made of living stone, established upon the revelation of Yeshua our Jesus as Messiah, Come and be part of His house
Israel . the mountain of the Lords house has been established. It is a stone cut out without hands. It is the stone which you the builders - have rejected till now It has been a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense Yet it has become the chief corner stone It is the stone that smote the image of natural kingdoms in Nebuchadnezzar's dream and crushed them to powder. This is the stone that "became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth". This is the blood bought body of believers, living stones, a spiritual house, the Church of Yeshua/Jesus
Redeemed mankind has now become the habitation of the Most High. Come and take your place in this Spirit house Come and complete us for we are not whole without you And we will not rest . until you are at rest concerning Messiah The law of the spirit of Life pours out of Zion, that skin tent where God dwells directly with man
Come and take your place in Yeshua/Jesus For in the giving of himself He has prepared a way for you In the giving of Himself He has prepared a place for you in the Father . this is a place that no man can take from you .this is your land . your habitation in Adonai Yeshua/Jesus is the way . He is the door . He is the Great Shepherd of the sheep Come and teach us the great love story between you and Yahweh Come and impart your zeal and passion for holiness Come drink of the cup of a new covenant that truly satisfies the soul Come eat the bread of a family beyond the bounds of natural lineage Come receive Menachem Av (the comfort of the Father) Be comforted; BE COMFORTED for Yeshua is your redemption just as he is ours The light of Av has dawned and his name is Yeshua the Christ
The lion of God's chastening should turn our hearts to hear. Don't allow the blast of God's judgment to remain on you any longer. Let the Ninth of AV be a new beginning for you. Repent and receive Yeshua/Jesus as Messiah.
I'm here to represent the Church of Yeshua/Jesus the Messiah, I'm here representing all those that by Yahweh's mercy are grafted in to the vine I'm standing in the gap reaching for you oh Israel I am interceding for you by this act of service.
At this point I served communion to the "Messianic Rabbi" Mr. Cohen and his wife who stood in identification for Israel
The Silver tray and Chalice that I have were purchased and brought to me from Israel They are hand tooled pieces that have Jerusalem's sky line, walls, and gates on them >From these I serve you the bread This is body of our Lord Yeshua/Jesus for He said, "take eat this is my body that is broken for you" This represents the myriad of souls that have become one bread in the Lord Jesus Jesus was broken to break down the middle wall of division between the Jew and Gentile According to Paul: He has made out of the two one new man We being many are one bread I receive you my brethren, and I bless you with all my heart Now I serve you the Cup of the new Covenant This is the communion of the blood of Christ for He said, "this is my blood which is shed for you" This is the cup of a New Testament In this cup is the forgiveness of your sins, In this cup is your healing, In this cup is the fulfillment of all you have been promised Take it . drink it . drink all of it
Prayer: Lord God, open the hearts of Israel to receive Yeshua/Jesus as Messiah. I declare piercing and penetrating revelation to come to the house of Israel concerning Yeshua/Jesus. Reveal yourself, Lamb of God. Demonstrate your power. Manifest your glory. Don't leave Israel in the dark anymore. Holy Spirit reveal the Christ. Let their hearts be plowed and sowed with Yeshua/Jesus, the Lord. Visit them with dreams. Fill their minds with vision of Yeshua/Jesus. Open a window of angelic visitation unparallel in history. Whisper the name of Yeshua/Jesus in their ears. Let the hunger of Messiah fill their waking thoughts and the breath of the Most High reveal Yeshua/Jesus to them. Amen, Amen, Amen
