Solid Foundation of God - Tevet 28, 5774

Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands,
having this seal:
'The Lord knows those who are His,' and
'Let everyone who names the name of Christ
depart from iniquity.'

BLOOD - Tevet 27, 5774

For the life of the flesh is in the blood,

and I have given it to you upon the altar

to make atonement for your souls;

for it is the blood

that makes atonement for the soul.

Leviticus 17:11

Everlasting Arms - Tevet 26, 5774

 There is no one like the God of Jeshurun,
Who rides the heavens to help you,
And in His excellency on the clouds.
The eternal God is your refuge,
And underneath are the everlasting arms;
He will thrust out the enemy from before you,
And will say, 'Destroy!'
Then Israel shall dwell in safety,
The fountain of Jacob alone,
In a land of grain and new wine;
His heavens shall also drop dew.
Happy are you, O Israel!
Who is like you, a people saved by the LORD,
The shield of your help
And the sword of your majesty!
Your enemies shall submit to you,
And you shall tread down their high places.

HOPE - Tevet 25, 5774

For there is hope for a tree,
If it is cut down,
that it will sprout again,
and that its tender shoots will not cease.
Though its root may grow old in the earth,
and its stump may die in the ground,
yet at the scent of water it will bud
and bring forth branches like a plant.

JOB 14:7-9

HEART - Tevet 24, 5774

Trust in the LORD, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Delight yourself also in the LORD,
And He shall give you
the desires of your heart.

Bartimaeus - Tevet 23, 5774

Now they came to Jericho.
As He went out of Jericho with His disciples
and a great multitude,
blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus,
sat by the road begging.
And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth,
he began to cry out and say,
'Jesus, Son of David,
have mercy on me!'
Then many warned him to be quiet;
but he cried out all the more,
'Son of David, have mercy on me!'
So Jesus stood still and
commanded him to be called.
Then they called the blind man, saying to him,
'Be of good cheer.  Rise,  He is calling you.'
And throwing aside his garment,
he rose and came to Jesus.
So Jesus answered and said to him,
'What do you want Me to do for you?'
The blind man said to Him,
'Rabboni, that I may receive my sight.'
Then Jesus said to him,
'Go your way; your faith has made you well.'
And immediately he received his sight
and followed Jesus on the road.

MARK 10:46:52

Dipped in Blood - Tevet 22, 5774

Now I saw heaven opened, and behold,
a white horse.
And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True,
and in righteousness He judges and makes war.
His eyes were like a flame of fire,
and on His head were many crowns.
He had a name written
that no one knew except Himself.
He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood,
and His name is called
The Word of God.

Praise Him - Tevet 21, 5774

He sends out His command to the earth;

His word runs very swiftly.

He gives snow like wool;

He scatters the frost like ashes;

He casts out His hail like morsels;

Who can stand before His cold?

He sends out His word and melts them;

He causes His wind to blow,

and the waters flow.

He declares His word to Jacob,

His statutes and His judgments to Israel.

He has not dealt thus with any nation;

And as for His judgments,

they have not known them.

Praise the LORD!

PSALM 147:15-20

MYSTERY - Tevet 18, 5774

And without controversy
great is the mystery of godliness:

God was manifested in the flesh,
Justified in the Spirit,
Seen by angels,
Preached among the Gentiles,
Believed on in the world,
Received up in glory.

I Timothy 3:16

Live Peaceably - Tevet 17, 5774

Repay no one evil for evil.
Have regard for good things in the sight of all men.
If it is possible,
as much as depends on you,
live peaceably with all men.
Beloved, do not avenge yourselves,
but rather give place to wrath;
for it is written,
'Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,' says the Lord.
ROMANS 12:17-19

FRUIT - Tevet 16, 5774

But the fruit of the Spirit is love,

joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness,

goodness, faithfulness, gentleness,


Against such there is no law.

And those who are Christ's

have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

If we live in the Spirit,

let us also walk in the Spirit.

GALATIANS  5:22-25

Believe in Me - Tevet 15, 5774

Let not your heart be troubled;
you believe in God,
believe also in Me.
In My Father's house are many mansions;
if it were not so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you,
I will come again and receive you to Myself;
that where I am, there you may be also.
And where I go you know,
and the way you know.

John 14:1-4

RECEIVE - Tevet 13, 5774

 So Jesus said to them again,
'Peace to you!
As the Father has sent Me,
I also send you.'
And when He had said this,
He breathed on them, and said to them,
'Receive the Holy Spirit.
If you forgive the sins of any,
they are forgiven them;
if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.'
JOHN 20:21-23

Refuge & Strength - Tevet 12, 5774

God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
Even though the earth be removed,
And though the mountains
be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling.  Selah
PSALM 46:1-3

Restoration - Tevet 11, 5774

 'Behold, the days are coming,'
says the LORD,
'When the plowman shall overtake the reaper,
And the treader of grapes
him who sows seed;
The mountains shall drip with sweet wine,
And all the hills shall flow with it.
I will bring back the captives
of My people Israel;
They shall build the waste cities and inhabit them;
They shall plant vineyards and drink wine from them;
They shall also make gardens
and eat fruit from them.
I will plant them in their land,
And no longer shall they be pulled up
From the land I have given them,'
Says the LORD your God.

AMOS 9:13-15

Weapons - Tevet 10, 5774

For though we walk in the flesh,
we do not war according to the flesh.
For the weapons of our warfare
are not carnal but mighty in God
for pulling down strongholds,
casting down arguments
and every high thing that exalts itself
against the knowledge of God,
bringing every thought into captivity
to the obedience of Christ,
and being ready to punish all disobedience
when your obedience is fulfilled.

2 Corinthians 10:3-6

or shadow of turning.

And by Your will they exist and were created!"

And to open its seals;
For You were slain,

Out of every tribe and tongue and
people and nation,
And have made us kings and
priests to our God;
And we shall reign on the earth."

Be to our God forever and ever.  Amen."
Revelation 7:12


"We give You thanks, O Lord God Almighty,
The One who is and who was and
who is to come,
Because You have taken Your
great power and reigned.
The nations were angry, and Your
wrath has come,
And the time of the dead, that
they should be judged,
And that You should reward Your
servants the prophets and the saints,
And those who fear Your name,
small and great,
And should destroy those who
destroy the earth."
Revelation 11:17-18

For Your judgments have been manifested."

And You have given them
blood to drink.
For it is their just due."

"The next day John saw Jesus
coming toward him, and said,
'Behold!  The Lamb of God
who takes away the sin of the world!'"
John 1:29


"Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,
who, being in the form of God,
did not consider it robbery
to be equal with God,
but made Himself of no reputation,
taking the form of a bondservant,
and coming in the likeness of men.
And being found in appearance as a man,
He humbled Himself and
became obedient to the point of death,
even the death of the cross.
Therefore God also has highly
exalted Him and given Him the name
which is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus
every knee should bow,
of those in heaven, and
of those on earth,
and of those under the earth,
and that every tongue should confess
that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father."
Philippians 2:5-11

He Founded the Earth - Tevet 5, 5774

The LORD by wisdom founded the earth;
By understanding He established the heavens;
By His knowledge the depths were broken up,
And clouds drop down the dew.
My son, let them not depart from your eyes -
Keep sound wisdom and discretion;
So they will be life to your soul
and grace to your neck.
Then you will walk safely in your way,
and your foot will not stumble.
When you lie down,
you will not be afraid;
Yes, you will lie down and your sleep will be sweet.
Do not be afraid of sudden terror,
Nor of trouble from the wicked when it comes;
for the Lord will be your confidence,
and will keep your foot from being caught.
PROVERBS 3:19-26

Who put darkness for light,

Who put bitter for sweet,
and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!
ISAIAH 5:20-21
