Victoria: The Crucified ‘RABBI’ Yeshua/Jesus……*shema-ministries.com*

 

jesus2John 1:49 – Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.

The New Testament Christians Kept the Fall Holy Days –

The Apostles Paul and John wrote:

1 Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ. (1 Corinthians 11:1)

6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked. (1 John 2:6)

And that included keeping the Fall Holy Days.

Notice that even after the death and resurrection of Jesus, the importance that the Apostle Paul attached to keeping a Feast in Jerusalem:

21 I must by all means keep this coming feast in Jerusalem; but I will return again to you, God willing (Acts 18:21).

The Apostle Paul kept the Fall Holy Days. Paul wrote that he needed to keep the feast (possibly meaning the Feast of Tabernacles; Protestant commentators tend to focus on the one of the Spring Holy Days as this feast, but this is a matter of interpretation).

Paul also apparently kept the fast on the Day of Atonement:

9 Now when much time had been spent, and sailing was now dangerous because the Fast was already over, Paul advised them (Acts 27:9).

So, Paul kept (after his conversion to Christianity), what are now commonly called the Jewish Holy Days–and also sometimes did it outside of Jerusalem (1 Corinthians 16:8). Jesus, of course, also kept the Holy Days.

Although the observance of the Feast of Trumpets was not specified as such in the New Testament, both Jesus and the Apostle Paul kept it.

The Bible teaches that Jesus kept the Law and did not sin (Hebrews 4:15), hence He kept all the Fall Holy Days including the Feast of Trumpets.

Notice some statements from the Apostle Paul:

Jesus Himself taught on the last of the Fall Holy Days:

“On the last day, that great day of the feast (Feast of Tabernacles), Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive; for the Holy Spirit was not yet given, because Jesus was not yet glorified (John 7:37-39).”

Bible: “Zechariah 14:12″…………*shema-ministries.com*

[Zechariah 5:5-9] Then the angel that talked with me went forth, and said unto me, Lift up now thine eyes, and see what is this that goeth forth.

6And I said, What is it? And he said, This is an ephah that goeth forth. He said moreover, This is their resemblance through all the earth.

7And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah.

8And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof.

9Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out two women, and the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heaven.

[Zechariah 14:12] And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.

Commentary from Pastor Victoria-Jerusalem:  I heard in my spirit from Yeshua that I was to fly to Israel during Sukkot (2015).  Unfortunately, just as I was ready to leave, I was physically attacked by satan.  My knee was “wrenched” and it became so very painful that I could hardly walk.  I started praying and asking Yeshua for healing.  In the mean time, I couldn’t make my flight and was a no show at the air port.  From there, I became despondent and felt like I would not be able to carry out my assignment.  So, Yeshua had a pastor and an intercessor fly from Atlanta out to my place.  They said, that GOD had put it on their hearts to physically come to me to give His message, that I must obey GOD no matter what and go to Israel, so I did.

I went in early November (after Sukkot) of last year.  Yeshua said I was to go to the southern gate of Israel (Eilat) and I was to release the sound of my harp.  He said I was to make proclamations of His 2nd coming, and to read from Zechariah.  He said I was to warn the Jewish people to repent!  No one stopped, they had plugged ears, nor did they pay any attention whatsoever.  I felt in my spirit that they were completely oblivious as to what time it was Biblically.  I felt very sad, and prayed to Yeshua, expressing to Him and saying, “They do not have ANY idea what time it is, Yeshua.”  I am praying for them.  They are my brothers and sisters.  Israel is the apple of God’s eye and He has placed His name in Jerusalem.  He always Warns His people before something is about to take place.

There is another video on this site that we posted, and it is from Moshe from Israel’s Bible Prophecy channel.  He said he believes that blood is going to spill in Jerusalem soon.  He reported this on Feb. 28, 2016.

1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2In 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. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 4And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.    John 14:1-4

“I came not to bring peace, but a sword”….Jesus teachings and raising a dead girl….*shema-ministries.com*

“From the movie depiction of the gospels of Jesus Christ – I came not to bring peace but a sword. Jesus teaching that his gospel of repentance and Holiness and truth would cause great division among people and families. As some would recognize him as God incarnate and follow his teachings and others would reject him. Jesus is the prince of peace, and gives His peace to those who accept him and keep his commands, but in the world expect division, discord and persecution from those who reject Him.”

Hundreds of reindeer killed by lightning strike in Norway….*shema-ministries.com*

Published on Aug 29, 2016

NOTE: Lightning shown in the footage has occurred on the same day and in the same area as that where the reindeer were killed. It is however impossible to tell whether it was this exact lightening which killed the reindeer.

If the chances of getting struck by lightning are slim, the chances of 323 reindeer getting struck by lightning must be miniscule, but that’s exactly what seems to have happened on a mountain plateau in Norway.

Learning about the Shabbat…”What is Shabbat”?….*shema-ministries.com*

Victoria Richard_Fotor

Shalom and Welcome,

I am Pastor Victoria, and I’ve lived in Jerusalem for many years.  I have done many, many Shabbats in Jerusalem, and the Lord wants me to teach “the things of God”.  So, firstly, I will teach you about how to do Shabbat!.

We also have a lovely dining table all set up with a large bouquet of fresh cut flowers in the center of the table.  We set up the candles (two of them).  We put out the wine cups, and have two loaves of Challah bread on a pretty platter.  We dress nicely to honor Yeshua. We like to sing songs, pray, do blessings, dance and enjoy the fellowship – and, we read Bible passages and share teachings at my Shabbats.

Shabbat [Hebrew], “rest” or “cessation”) or Shabbos for Yiddish, or the Sabbath: is Judaism’s day of rest and seventh day of the week beginning Friday evening.  They remember the Biblical Creation [Genesis] of heaven and earth in six days; the Exodus of the Hebrews, and look forward to a future Messiahs’ Reign.  Shabbat observance entails refraining from work activities, and engaging in restful activities to honor the day. Judaism’s traditional position is that unbroken seventh-day Shabbat originated among the Jewish people, as their first and most sacred institution, though some suggest other origins. Variations upon Shabbat are widespread in Judaism.

According to Halacha (Jewish religious law), Shabbat is observed from a few minutes before sunset on Friday evening until the appearance of three stars in the sky on Saturday night.   From Chabad: “While a day starts and ends at nightfall, the exact moment when night — and the next calendar date — begins is not clear. The twilight period, from sunset (“shkiah) until three stars are visible in the sky (“tzeit hakochavim“), is an “iffy” time period, known as “bein hashmashot.” Shabbat and all the holidays begin at sunset, the earliest possible definition of nightfall, and end when three stars appear in the sky the next evening, the latest definition of nightfall.”

Lev 23:3  KJV – Six days shall work be done; but the seventh day is the Sabbath of rest, an Holy Convocation therein; it is the Sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings. *Note – Sabbaths/Shabbats are what God calls a ‘Holy Convocation’.  God’s calendar shows Saturday to be the Sabbath.  It begins Friday evening and goes through Saturday – 24 hours.  You can look on-line for candle lighting times.

Shabbat is ushered in by lighting candles and reciting a blessing. Traditionally, three special meals are eaten: in the evening, in the early afternoon, and late in the afternoon.

The Friday evening meal (you may check on-line to see when it officially begins): 

(1) CANDLE LIGHTING:  The woman of the home starts with lighting candles and reciting the candle lighting blessing. Placing her hands over her eyes, (after lighting candles) – reciting the blessing – then waving in the Shabbat.

“Baruch, ata Adonai, eloheynu melech ha-olem, asher kidshanu b’mitzvatov vitzivanu l’hadlik  ner shel Shabbat!”   Which means: “Praised are You, O Lord our God, King of the universe, Who has sanctified us by Your laws and commanded us to kindle the Shabbat light.”

(2) KIDDUSH [the wine blessing]:  Traditionally the father stands and recites blessings over the children along with a prayer, or says the blessing in Numbers 6:24  “The Lord bless you and keep you.  The Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you.  The Lord turn His face to you, and give you peace.”

Then, Kiddush – The Blessing over the Wine (or pure grape juice):

“Baruch ata adonai eloheynu melech ha-olam borey p’ri ha-gafen. ” “Praised are You, O Lord our God, King  of the universe, Who creates the fruit of the vine.”

Tradition has it that the man raises his cup of wine and recites the Kiddush when the family has gathered around the Shabbat table.  Of course, there are various traditions on this as well.

(3) THE BREAD BLESSING: Which is recited over two loaves of Challah bread. The Challah bread (a delicious braided sweet yeast bread) is covered with a special cloth.  After the Kiddush the two loaves are a blessing – a thanksgiving for the food about to be eaten. Each person breaks off a piece and passes it around.

“Baruch ata adonai eloheynu melech ha-olam ha-motzi lechem min ha-aretz.” “Praised are You, O Lord our God, King of the universe, Who brings forth bread from the earth.”

One rabbinic explanation is that the loaves represent double portion, referring to the manna GOD provided in the wilderness on the sixth day of the week, to be eaten on that day and for the Sabbath day (Shabbat).

Shabbat is closed the following evening with a Havdallah blessing (including smelling a spice with strong scent). Shabbat is a festive day when Jews exercise their freedom from the regular labors of everyday life. It offers an opportunity to contemplate the spiritual aspects of life and to spend time with family.

 

What CNN and Fox Won’t Tell You About the Move of God…..*shema-ministries.com*

What CNN and Fox Won’t Tell You About the Move of God

You won’t hear this reported on CNN or Fox News because news programs sell spin and controversy. Good news won’t raise ratings.
You won’t hear this from America’s pulpits because America’s churches are in a state of separation. Her pastors have abdicated their biblical civic responsibilities to secular politicians in exchange for 30 pieces of tax-exempt silver.
Most pastors and church-goers can’t name their representative or senators, much less pray for them daily or name one piece of legislation they’re working on. Nor do they know that most likely the lawmakers sleep on their office couches because they can’t afford to rent an apartment in the nation’s most expensive city.
It upsets me when I hear all the doom-and-gloom “prophetic words” about how Congress is nothing but a bunch of crooks. Most of these spiritual giant slayers have never stepped a foot into the Capitol or visited their congressman. They have no clue of what God is doing in their government or that God has big future plans for it. Their opinions are shaped more from media spin and propaganda than a biblical worldview of God’s end-times agenda for governance.
Do I believe America is in a period of judgement? Yes! Most definitely. God has given us over to our selfish desires. Yet the biblical pattern for national revival is almost always preceded by a time of judgment. “The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.”
Psalm 72:16 and Micah 4:1-3, clearly state that in “the last days” God will take a remnant of believers (wheat) and plant them in the tops of world governments (tops of the mountains) and build “the house of the Lord,” beginning in the top levels of the world’s governments. The resulting consequences of God’s moving in world governments would then shake the earth with revival. “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the house of the Lord.”
I can confirm that this is beginning to happen in Washington, D.C., London, Ukraine, Poland, Moscow and several nations in Africa.
Add to this, when the “last trumpet” in Revelation sounds, “the kingdoms of this world” (governments) become the governments of the Lord Jesus Christ and He will rule them forever with His glorious church (Rev. 11:15-19). So much for “separation of church and state.”
Almost always, following these periods of captivity and judgment were times of transition to revival. These times of transitions were times of national repentance followed by “times of refreshing” or the latter rain.
So could America be in one of these transitional times of repentance where our national sins are being exposed? Are the wheat and tares being exposed before a time to shine like the sun in righteousness?
How can a nation, which for years has been praying for revival, actually “turn from your wicked ways” until those wicked ways are openly exposed for all to see? Could this be what we are witnessing now in America—unprecedented exposure of corruption at every level of society and government—so God can heal us? So we know what to repent of?
If so, now is the time for the prophets to come forth and prophesy to the nation. Now is the time for the preachers to preach repentance and godly holiness to the church—to make herself ready to enter the kingdom.
Is God through with America yet? I don’t believe so. I think America’s greatest days may be just around the corner. I believe we’re in the first dawning hours of another Great Awakening.
In fact, I believe God has been silently, behind the scenes, answering our 2 Chronicles 7:14 prayers for some time now, not at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue (the White House) but at First Street and East Capitol Street, in the heart of the U.S. Capitol with the 114th Congress.
Did you know, for the past two years, weekly Christian worship services for members of Congress and staff, called the Jefferson Gathering, are being held in the Capitol building after an absence of 144 years? More than 150 members have attend in two years and many now attend on a regular basis. Several people have given their lives to Christ.
Did you know there are more “passionate followers of Jesus Christ” (I prefer this to the overused sometime meaningless term, “Christian”) in the 114th Congress than at any time since President Calvin Coolidge? There are. We are working with close to 200 sincere followers of the Lord in the House and Senate.
Did you know, on occasions, as many as 90 pastors will be praying together in the Capitol Rotunda while the House of Representatives is debating controversial freedom of religion amendments on the House floor? Did you know that, on most Wednesday evenings, prayer for America is happening in the Rotunda? It is!
Have you heard? Beginning on Sunday, Sept. 4, three Christian worship services will begin in the Ways and Means Room in the Capitol building for all federal employees and Capitol Police. It’s been 150 years since regular Sunday church services were held in the U.S. Capitol. This is big news!
How did this all begin to happen? America has been praying, that’s how! And God is right now in the process of answering those prayers by raising up godly men and women in Congress, the most important branch of government.
Let me share our personal first-hand experiences of being a small part of what God is doing in Congress. I know there are other great ministries on the Hill reaching out to Congress in very influential ways, and we thank God for their work. But I can only share with you about what JoAnn and I are doing.
Though we may never agree totally with everyone’s politics, let me tell you why I’m thankful that Paul Ryan is speaker of the House and that he won his primary race. Speaker Ryan, a Roman Catholic, is a passionate disciple and follower of Jesus Christ. He is surrounding himself with godly spiritual pastors.
He said, “The only hope for America is a spiritual awakening. … We must have spiritual solutions to our problems, or we’re in for troubled times as a nation” (spoken to JoAnn and me alone in a private, 30-minute conversation). He asked that I help him invite pastors to the Capitol for spiritual advice. So far, we have had more than 200 pastors visit the Capitol, and we plan for many more for this fall.
Ryan makes meeting pastors a top priority in his busy schedule. JoAnn and I have an open working relationship with his staff. They told us that in six weeks’ time, they had to turn down more than 500 invitations to various important events (I saw the print out sheets), “but he’s doing the pastors briefings because he’s passionate about it,” a top staffer told us.
Speaker Ryan is an avid fan of historian David Barton. “I listen to him all the time, even in my car while driving,” he said. Because of Barton’s teachings, Speaker Ryan is very knowledgeable of the 1954 Johnson Amendment (putting political speech restrictions on pastors from their pulpits) and its devastating effects on our culture.
He understands “first causative principle”—that the 1954 Johnson Amendment eventually was responsible for prayer and Bible reading being taken out of schools in 1963, the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973 and redefining of marriage in 2016—all because pastors were silenced from speaking out politically. That’s why Speaker Ryan wants the Johnson Amendment repealed legislatively. He knows pastors being set free to preach again to the nation regarding these moral and political issues is a must to turn the nation around.
In early January at the Republican Retreat in Baltimore, Ryan and I began discussing how Congress could legislatively repeal it. Later, I spent one hour educating Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (chair of Republican Conference, whose husband is a pastor) and her entire senior staff on the Johnson Amendment toward the goal of repealing it.
Rep. Kevin Brady is chair of the Ways and Means Committee through which any legislation to repeal would have to come to the floor, and he is totally on board. Ryan directed me to Brady. Brady also gave me approval to hold three Sunday services (beginning Sept. 4) in the Ways and Means Committee room in the Capitol. Brady told me with a big smile on his face, “I’m thrilled you’re having church in the Ways and Means Committee Room. Glad to let you use it.”
So, long before Donald Trump said anything about repealing the Johnson Amendment, Speaker Ryan had been working on it. For the first time in 60 years, the opportunity to repeal the Johnson Amendment exists because of Ryan’s leadership, spirituality and love of Jesus! Now we need a Republican president in the Oval Office to sign a repeal into law (which is more effective than just an executive order)!
Speaker Ryan has formed a committee of five members of Congress (to which I was invited to participate) to report to him on inviting pastors to the Capitol to have lunch with him and arrange congressional-clergy townhall meetings in the Cannon Caucus Room. We are planning our second one in November, and we’ll form an email alert system so Speaker Ryan can contact pastors on how to inform their churches to pray for America.
This is unprecedented and historic! This is God answering our prayers.
In September, we’ll be hosting four worship services weekly in the U.S. Capitol with Ryan’s permission and blessing.
I know a lot of folks are critical of Speaker Ryan’s policies, but how many know what I’ve just shared with you? I pray for Speaker Ryan daily. Do you? I know he wants what’s best for America. Is he right on every issue? Who is?
But I am thankful God has him where he is. He is very open to the voice of the Lord. Pray that God will change his heart in those areas in which you don’t agree with him.
Let me ask you this question: Which is more important for America: Repealing the TPP, building a wall at our border, balancing the budget, restoring jobs or experiencing a third Great Awakening? Without a spiritual awakening, America will still go to hell in a handbasket. We must have revival!
I’m thankful that the top four leaders of the Republican Party in Congress (Speaker Paul Ryan, Leader Kevin McCarthy, Whip Steve Scalise and Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers) know this and are doing what they can to see it happen. They know that, without it, America has no hope. These are the leaders America needs now.
America’s political revivals have always followed spiritual awakenings. I am convinced the underpinnings for a third spiritual awakening are happening now, and the foundations for political renewal could be just ahead.
Keep praying, and keep voting. God is not finished with America yet.
