Again it is written:
You shall not tempt THE LORD JEHOVAH
10.Yeshua said to him, “
Depart Satan, for it is

your God and him alone shall you
|We are blessed by the Lord giving us many opportunities to serve Him and His word. On occasion we visit home-bound people. Carmen is one such case. She is bed-ridden with debilitating health.
However, she is one of our faithful ones and never misses her homework. “Homework” is what we refer to as Bible lessons which can be done at home. We fix her up a week at a time.
This morning, and the two previous sundays we visited with her in her home and conducted a service just for her. We are able to play the guitar and sing with her. She enjoys that very much! And her dog does too.
|Our meeting this morning opened with the reading of Parsha 27.i (Leviticus 12:1-13:5).
The same portion was read a week ago. We added the comment that tazria (sometimes translated leprosy) is a condition that afflicts one who has assaulted another person with words – inadverdantly or otherwise.
We only shared three readinggs today.
READING ONE – Jeremiah 34.
Jeremiah has pronounced judgment to King Zedekiah and he describes the grevious sin of which Israel is guilty. Liberty must be proclaimed to slaves on the seventh year of their term. This law was violated and as a result Israel was to be set free to face judgment.
Verse 17. “Behold, I proclaim liberty to you,’ says the LORD—‘to the sword, to pestilence, and to famine!”
READING TWO – Jeremiah 35.
The tribe of the Rechabites is used as an example to the rest of Israel on what it means to truly obey.
READING – Jeremiah 36.
Still in prison, Jeremiah dictated a letter to the king of Judah on the impending doom. Baruch the scribe had it read to the king who rejected G-d’s word by having the scroll burned.
Are we so quick to reject the message from G-d? King Jehoiakim of Judah affronted G-d by burning His word.
