LOVE THE L-RD YOUR G-D

Deuteronomy 6:4-5: “Shema Yisrael, Adonai Eloheinu, Adonai Echad. Ve’ahavta et Adonai, be’chol le’vavecha, be’chol naf’sehecha uv’chol me’odecha”
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one! You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.”

The ‘Shema’ is the foundational statement of faith of the Jewish people. This is the first instance in human history that the “Love of G-d” was demanded by any religion.

Psalm 100:1-5 declares: “Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands! Serve the LORD with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Know that the LORD, He is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name. For the LORD is good; His mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.”

We must love the L-rd our G-d because He gave us His gift of life. For some physical life, and for others, physical and spiritual life.
And loving G-d is a total commitment to Him.

Deuteronomy 10:12-13 says: “And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to keep the commandments of the LORD and His statutes which I command you today for your good?”
Although this is a command that was given by Moses to the Children of Israel, all mankind should fear the L-rd, walk in His ways, love Him, serve Him and be obedient to Him.

In the book of Genesis, we see that Abraham was totally committed to G-d. He left his country, his people and his family at G-d’s command to go to a ‘strange land’.
And years later when G-d asked Abraham to sacrifice his beloved son, Isaac, he never hesitated and instantly obeyed G-d.
You see, even though Abraham loved Isaac, he was still prepared to sacrifice Isaac at G-d’s command because of His undying love for G-d. And we see here an incredible example of a man who died to self for the L-rd.
His love for G-d overtook his love for his son, Isaac.

Another person who totally died to self for the L-rd was Rav Shaul (The Apostle Paul).
In Acts 21:10-13 we read: “And as we stayed many days, a certain prophet named Agabus came down from Judea.  When he had come to us, he took Paul's belt, bound his own hands and feet, and said, “Thus says the Holy Spirit, ‘So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man who owns this belt, and deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.’ ” Now when we heard these things, both we and those from that place pleaded with him not to go up to Jerusalem. Then Paul answered, “What do you mean by weeping and breaking my heart? For I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.””
Rav Shaul was willing to die for Yeshua because of His love for Him.
And if we truly love G-d, we too must die to self.

And the greatest example of love is the love Almighty G-d has for all mankind – both Jews and gentiles.
We see the example of this love in John 3:16-17: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son (Yeshua), that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”

And this love is the love through which one attains the forgiveness of one’s sin and the guarantee of eternal life in Heaven.
And this is how much Almighty G-d loves you and me.
All you need do is accept Yeshua as your Messiah, your Saviour.

And this is how much G-d expects you to love your fellow man – Not just those who are nice to you and who do good to you.

Loving G-d is a commandment, not a suggestion. And the love of G-d is the distinctive mark of true worshippers.

So, “love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.”
Then “Make a joyful shout to the LORD; Serve the LORD with gladness; and come before His presence with singing.”

 

 

G-D IS STILL DOING THE SUPERNATURAL TODAY

Exodus chapter 14 contains one of the most powerful and supernatural events ever recorded by man – the parting of the Red Sea.

After Pharaoh had let the Israelites go, the ‘Torah’ tells us that soon after their newly-gained freedom, when Pharaoh learned that the people had fled, he had a change of heart and he chased after the Israelites with chariots catching up with them by the Red sea.

Greatly frightened, the Israelites cried out to G-d and complained to Moses. G-d told Moses to lift up his rod, hold out his arm, and divide the sea. Moses did so, and G-d drove back the sea with a strong east wind and the Israelites marched through on dry ground, the waters forming walls on their right and left.
The Egyptians pursued, but G-d slowed them by locking their chariot wheels.

On G-d’s instruction, Moses again held out his arm and the waters covered the chariots, the horsemen, and all the Egyptians, drowning them, thus fulfilling the word spoken by Moses to the people in Exodus 14:13: “And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever.””

We see another example of a supernatural event in the battle between David and Goliath.
In 1 Samuel 17:5-7, we read: “He had a bronze helmet on his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail, and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of bronze. And he had bronze armour on his legs and a bronze javelin between his shoulders. Now the staff of his spear was like a weaver's beam, and his iron spearhead weighed six hundred shekels; and a shield-bearer went before him.”

Goliath was in full battle array with a helmet of bronze on his head, a coat of mail that weighed five thousand shekels of bronze and bronze armour on his legs.
Goliath’s weapons consisted of a sword, a bronze javelin, a spear whose staff was like a weaver’s beam, and a shield.
David’s armour consisted of…well, nothing.

All David had as weapons was a slingshot and five smooth stones. In reality, it was not really a contest.
However, David had one weapon that Goliath didn’t have - Almighty G-d. Which is why in 1 Samuel 17:47 David declares: “for the battle is the Lord’s.
You see, David had no doubt about the outcome of the battle.

But what made the battle supernatural?

David put his hand in his bag in which he had put the five stones he took out of the brook. He then took a stone, and put it into the sling he had in his hand, slung it and smote the Philistine in his forehead.

How could David smite Goliath on his forehead when he had a helmet of bronze upon his head?
Could the stone slung by David have been under a divine direction and power which nothing could resist? If so, the stone could have easily passed right through the helmet of bronze piercing Goliath’s forehead, smiting him.

Personally, I believe it was Almighty G-d who slung the stone using David’s arm.

So what about today? Is G-d still doing the supernatural today? Absolutely!

Every time you stand in Israel, you are standing in a country which by all rights should not exist.
Israel, a country of about six million people, is surrounded by a number of hostile nations numbering approximately two hundred and ninety four million people.
So after so many wars, why has Israel not been defeated? Because Almighty G-d’s supernatural hand is upon her.

And, if you believe and if you trust G-d, you will see G-d’s supernatural hand working in your life.
My wife and I have seen this on many, many occasions over the last almost thirty four years of our lives together. Space precludes me from mentioning these supernatural miracles that have taken place in our lives and in Emet Ministries.

In John 16:23, Yeshua says: “Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you.”

The Bible tells us that for the Father to work miracles, you have to ask in the name of Yeshua.

If you are in need of a miracle, whatever it may be and as long as it is in line with G-d’s word, ask your Heavenly Father in the name of Yeshua, believing and trusting Him. Your miracle might not be instantaneous, but G-d will work your situation out…just as he did for David and just as He did for the Israelites trapped at the Red Sea.
And then in faith, thank Him and see what He will do.

Remember, without the name of Yeshua your miracle may not happen. But in the name of Yeshua, believing, having faith and trusting G-d, you too will see that G-d is still doing the supernatural today.
