Melech Ha Olam : Commissioning Service
1 Chesvan 5774. October 5, 2013
We have kept the Fall Feasts, and await the rains. We are in the month when the Flood started. We have prepared our hearts, and taken steps to unify ourselves into His Congregation. HaShem is King!
See “the goodness of the L-rd in the land of the living”. Learn His ways. Do what He says. “O magnify the L-rd, let us exalt His name together”.
Be the head and not the tail. Be above and not below. Let us “guard our heart, for it is the source of life’s consequences”.
Support each other, “build up each other in our most holy faith”. Love is a decision. In the natural, it may be hard to love each other, but not impossible. In the spiritual, we can love each other, and pray for each other. To everything and everyone, there is a purpose: I love you, you love me; You support me, I support you.
Unite. Be one voice. One “Shema”. We cannot be fractioned and survive: “A house divided against itself will not stand”. For there is “one body, one Spirit, one hope; one faith, one L-rd, one immersion, and one Father who is over all and through all and in all”.
It’s all about the King – “Melech Ha Olam”! He is Sovereign, The Object of our worship and all that we do. “In everything, give thanks” to Him! Uphold His name. Let us say, “Everything He has said, we will do”. He is our Covenant of life, love and marriage for every people, tribe, tongue and language. Pray the Father’s will, every day. Be salt and life. Bring your gifts, your talents and offerings. Do everything in G-dly order and shalom.
What In the world are we doing? We are not about this world, but about The Father’s Kingdom, The Heavenly pattern and The Olam Haba, the world to come. We long for the New Yerushalayim, while praying for the peace of the present Yerushalayim. We bless and follow the ways of our earthly spiritual forefathers and their faith – for they saw Him! – Avraham, Yitz’chak, and Ya’akov!
Be on guard, lest we fall! The enemy wants to take you and us down, but “greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world”. This new season and Congregation is you, now! This is us, now! Come closer! It is our journey! We are becoming, and following the ways of HaShem!
We “battle not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, the powers, the rulers of the dark, and the spiritual wickedness in high places”.
When we have done all, let us “stand”. The enemy knows the Torah, and hates the Torah. We will strive to know the Torah. And we will love the Torah.
“Walk worthy of our calling”! “Sing unto the L-rd and new song”! Let us walk parallel together in our journey here on earth. May our highest moments be before us. He is High and Holy!
“Now to the King Eternal, Immortal, Invisible, the Only Wise G-d, be Glory and Honor, forever and ever! Amein v-Amein!”
