Woman From Shomerom

John 4

In Shekem of Shomerom, a woman arrived

to draw water from Ya’akov’s fountain.

HA’MASHIACH, who was weary,

asked her for a drink.

Because HIS people did not talk to hers’

she wondered why HE asked that of her?

HE said, if you knew who asked you for a drink.

If you knew the GIFT of ELOHIM, you would

have received LIVING WATER if you had asked HIM!

The water from this well will make you thirst again,

but drink what I give and you will never thirst.

For it becomes a fountain of Everlasting Life!

She called him a PROPHET and spoke

of HA’MASHIACH, the ONE called ANOINTED.

HE said, I who am speaking to you am HE.

The woman left HIM and her jug and went to the city saying,

come and see! A man who told me everything, all I have done!

Is this not HIM? Is this not HA’MASHIACH!

So people left the city to see for themselves.

Because of this woman many were saved!

They believed what they heard,

that HE was HA’MASHIACH,

SAVIOR of the world!!!

Do you hunger, do you hunger for the world’s food or are you filled with HIS.

HIS desire for you to accomplish HIS work!

Do you sow or do you reap? Do you reap what you do not labor for?

Reap and receive fruit for everlasting life!

Rejoice together, he who sows and he who reaps! AMEN!!!

Who Does One Honor On A Birthday?

You would think it would be an easy question to answer. Yet, who gets honored on the day many celebrate as the day JESUS/YESHUA’YAH was born? If we were to ask HIM what HE wanted for HIS birthday, HE would likely point us to Scripture:

Deuteronomy/D’varim 15: 10 You shall give to him freely, and your heart shall not be grudging when you give to him, because for this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in all that you undertake. 11 For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.’

Psalm/Tehillim 112:9 He has distributed freely; he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever; his horn is exalted in honor.

Proverbs/Mishlei 14:21 Whoever despises his neighbor is a sinner, but blessed is he who is generous to the poor.

Isaiah/Yesha’Yahu 58:7 Is it not to share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, to cover him, and not to hide yourself from your own flesh?

Ezekiel/Yechezk’El 16:49 Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, excess of food, and prosperous ease, but did not aid the poor and needy.

Matthew/Mattityahu 25:37- 40 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’

Luke 12: 33 Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. 34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.…

Luke 14: 12 Then Jesus said to the man who had invited Him, “When you host a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or brothers or relatives or rich neighbors. Otherwise, they may invite you in return, and you will be repaid. 13But when you host a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind, 14and you will be blessed. Since they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”…

Acts 2:44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45Selling their possessions and goods, they shared with anyone who was in need. 46With one accord they continued to meet daily in the temple courts and to break bread from house to house, sharing their meals with gladness and sincerity of heart,…

Acts 20:35 In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”

Romans 12:13 Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.
James/Ya’akov [Jacob] 1:27 Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.

I John/Yochanan 3:17-18 But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.

Can you imagine what would happen if all Christians helped those in need instead of doing what they typically do for Christmas? What if everyone who celebrated Christmas did this? How many needy/homeless/starving would there be left in the USA or the world even? Our Dear Beloved FATHER in Heaven, would you like to answer these questions, in JESUS/YESHUA’YAH’S Most Blessed NAME, AMEN?

[the above link is now for 2020 but the info below is from 2019]

Gifts. Decorations. Travel. There are so many fun things to spend money on this time of year. But just how much are Americans spending this holiday season [Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa]? Let’s take a look.

After seeing overall holiday sales increase 2.1 percent in 2018, the National Retail Federation (NRF) expects Americans to spend this holiday season another 4 percent, bringing overall holiday spending to nearly $30 billion [2019]. Whoa!

JESUS/YESHUA’YAH said in Luke 6:31, “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” and in John/Yochanan 14:15, “If you love me, you will obey my commandments.”. It is never too late to do for HIM what HE would truly love.

Praises, Blessings and Thanks to our Well Beloved GOD/ELOHIM! May our Dear Blessed FATHER in Heaven bless as many as possible with the ability to have the Heart and Mind of HIS Dear Blessed SON by giving us eyes to see, ears to hear, and hearts and minds teachable and open to the Dear Blessed SPIRIT OF TRUTH, WISDOM, UNDERSTANDING, KNOWLEDGE – Isaiah/Yesha’Yahu 11:2 – so that we show our Well Beloved SAVIOR the True Love HE asked for by obeying HIM! In HIS Most Precious NAME JESUS/YESHUA’YAH, AMEN!
