Rabbi’s Reflections – Wednesday, March 17, 2021


Daily Bread, reading plan by Lars Enarson (https://www.thewatchman.org/)

Wed 17 Mar-2021 4th of Nisan, 5781

Le 3:1-17 Isa 27 Pr 19 Ac 18 (Rev 12)

Rabbi Trail:  I’m on a mini-vacation until Thursday night, so I have less time than usual to write.  So, here’s a thought… why not read with intensity the words that the Lord put in His Good Book.  

Reminder:  There are only 10 days left for preparation before Passover passes over.  How to get ready?  Get the Chametz out.  Physically, that means removing all the leaven from your house.  Spiritually, it means getting all the sin out of your life.  How do we get the sin out?  Repent.  More on that later. 

Week 12

Memory Verse: Psalm 1:1 Happy is the one who has not walked in the advice of the wicked, nor stood in the way of sinners, nor sat in the seat of scoffers. 2 But his delight is in the Torah of Adonai, and on His Torah he meditates day and night.

57   3/19    Tuesday:        Deuteronomy 30-31

Question of the day:  Yeshua asks the question of the day… John 11:26b Do you believe this?”

Answer:  Deuteronomy 32 is among my favorite Scriptures.  The entire book of Deuteronomy is a sort of “last will and testament” for Moses in which he recounts the experiences of the children of Israel.  Then he prophesies over them, declaring a future filled with both calamity and blessing.  Chapter 32 then, is the summary of Moses’ retelling.  These last 5 verses of chapter 32 from today’s reading are God’s instructions to Moses himself, for the end of his life.  Moses was told to go up on Mt. Nebo where he will die.  Moses was instructed to write in the Torah that he would never enter in to the promised land.  The promise to enter Canaan would not apply to him, but it does apply to you.

God has also given us instructions for the end of our lives.   John 11:25 Yeshua said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life! Whoever believes in Me, even if he dies, shall live. 26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.”  That’s the plan.  “Believe and never die.”  That’s the victory of entering in.
