If after listening to this Introduction to the Philokalia you are inspired to read the Philokalia and learn to pray in a more God-pleasing way, we strongly advise you to do so with the blessing and guidance of your spiritual father. If you do not have a spiritual father, finding one is much more important than reading the Philokalia. Fr. Maximos Constas writes: "Before reading any of the works in the Philokalia, it will be helpful to read the following two items. The first is St. Nikodemos' outstanding summary of all the principle doctrines and practices that the reader will encounter on the traditional path of entry into the Philokalia. The second is his Introduction to the Philokalia, which was omitted by the English translators." Listen to the entire Philokalia at Patristic Nectar: https://patristicnectar.org/philokalia Buy the 4 volume set of the Philokalia: https://www.holycross.org/products/the-philokalia-the-complete-text-4-volume-set Read the Introduction by St. Nikodemos: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Gl2cnU6FIooOKmJEaDQA4PIfwxf3FgpF/view?usp=sharing This is the second recording from our new contributor, Timothy D. Please say a prayer for him and his family. St. Nikodemos writes: "The Spirit enlightens those Fathers wise in divine things, oriented toward uninterrupted watchfulness and attentiveness in all things and guarding of the nous, and He reveals to them a method to again find grace, a method truly wondrous and most scientific. The method was the ceaseless prayer to our Lord Jesus Christ the Son of God." "From this spiritual and scientific work, accompanied also by the practical execution of the commandments and of the remaining moral virtues, because of the warmth which is created in the heart and the spiritual energy from the calling on the all-holy Name, the passions are burned up; because our God is fire, fire which consumes evil (Deut. 4:24). Continuing on, the nous and the heart, little by little, are purified and are unified together. And when they are purified and united, one with the other, from that point the fruits of the Spirit rise up once again in the soul and all the fullness of good things are lavished upon man. And that I may speak briefly, from here it is possible to return to the perfect grace of the Spirit which was granted to us from the beginning in Baptism, and which certainly exists in us, but the passions have buried it, just like the ashes bury the spark." "Come all, as many as are members in the Orthodox calling, lay people and monks together, as many as aspire to find the kingdom of God which is within you and the hidden treasure in the field of your heart (Lk. 17:21; Matt. 13:44), which is sweet Jesus Christ. Thusly, free from the captivity of this world and from the wandering of your nous and with a heart purified of the passions, by the ceaseless and awesome calling upon our Lord Jesus Christ and with the other co-operative virtues, which this book teaches, you shall be united together among yourselves and being united together in this way you shall all together be united to God, according to the supplication of our Lord to the Father where he said: 'That they may be one, as we are one' (Jn. 17:11)" This channel is dedicated to sharing the writings and lives of the Saints of the Orthodox Church.

Psalm 2:1-3 - The Voice of Rebellion

Pastor Mike Impact Ministries

Play Episode Listen Later Sep 26, 2022 5:12


When we read these first 3 verses of Psalm 2, you would think that you are reading the headlines of today's newspapers. We have the first of four voices as we hear the nations of the earth rage and rebel against the Lord and His Anointed One!. This is a voice of rebellion—the word "rage" means "to assemble tumultuously". It is the Gentiles that are in view ("heathen" and "people" in v. 1), and they are rebelling against God and His rule. The nations are led in rebellion by their kings, and all are resisting God and Christ. David begins this Psalm with a question that really is an expression of astonishment: "When you consider all that the Lord has done for the nations, how can they rebel against Him!" God has provided for their basic needs (Acts 14:15-17), guided them, kept them alive, and sent a Savior to bring forgiveness and eternal life (Acts 17:24-31; see Dan. 4:32). Yet, from the tower of Babel (Gen. 11) to the crucifixion of Christ (Acts 4:21-31) to the battle of Armageddon (Rev. 19:ll), the Bible records humanity's foolish and futile rebellions against the will of the Creator. The kings and minor rulers form a conspiracy to break the bonds that the Lord has established for their own good. The picture is that of a stubborn and raging animal, trying to break the cords that bind the yoke to its body (Jer. 5:5; 27:2). But the attempt is futile (vain) because the only true freedom comes from submitting to God and doing His will. Freedom without authority is anarchy, and anarchy destroys. The humanistic secular world view says that authority destroys creativity. What a lie and what folly! Authority is what releases and develops creativity, whether it's a musician, an athlete, or a surgeon. Apart from submitting to the authority of truth and law, there can be no true creativity. Real freedom is not doing what I want to do but what I ought to do. The runner who disciplines himself every day to eat only healthy foods, sacrifices and works hard preparing his body for event, will be free to run the best race possible to gain the reward of winning. Jesus said that you shall know the truth and the truth will set you free, and if the Son sets you free you will be free indeed! (John 8:32-26) Of course, this voice has been heard down through the centuries, but it is being heard in a greater way in these last days. As never before, there is a united voice of rebellion against the rule of God and Christ. What do the nations want? Freedom from God's rule! "Let us break their bands asunder!" According to Gen. 10:5, God divided the Gentile peoples into their lands and nations; see also Acts 17:26 and Deut. 32:8. History shows that the Gentile nations have rejected God's people (Israel), God's Word, and God's Christ. The nations do not want to submit to God's rule. Like proud Nebuchadnezzar, they want their own way, and they refuse to admit that God rules in the affairs of men. See Dan. 4:28-37. This Gentile rebellion grew more fierce with the establishing of the church (Acts 4:23-30). But in the last days, it will have its complete fulfillment as the "kings of the earth" unite to fight against God (see Rev. 1:5; 6:15; 16:12-16; 17:2, 18; 19:11-21). May the Lord help each one of us today to submit the His authority and find the freedom we really need and are looking for! God bless!

INTRODUCTION Each chapter of the tale of Ruth builds with tension. In this chapter, we're introduced to a mighty man, who could save our distressed damsels. But will he? This portion of the story is a real cliff-hanger. It doesn't give any resolution, but it does leave us important hints. It foreshadows, without giving anything away. THE TEXT And Naomi had a kinsman of her husband's, a mighty man of wealth, of the family of Elimelech; and his name was Boaz. And Ruth the Moabitess said unto Naomi, Let me now go to the field, and glean ears of corn after him in whose sight I shall find grace. And she said unto her, Go, my daughter. And she went, and came, and gleaned in the field after the reapers: and her hap was to light on a part of the field belonging unto Boaz, who was of the kindred of Elimelech. And, behold, Boaz came from Bethlehem, and said unto the reapers, The LORD be with you. And they answered him, The LORD bless thee. Then said Boaz unto his servant that was set over the reapers, Whose damsel is this? […] (Ruth 2). SUMMARY OF THE TEXT Naomi & Ruth returned empty to Bethlehem, during the barley harvest (1:22). They were empty, but Bethlehem was full. The disaster has befallen, but now we witness a hero arise, a mighty man, of the kinfolk of Naomi, Boaz was his name. His name means “fleetness” or “in him is strength” (v1, Cf. 3:18); a clear contrast with Mahlon. Ruth sets out–with Naomi's blessing, and likely due to Naomi's instruction–to busy herself with the lawful means of subsistence given to widows & strangers (v2; Cf. Lev. 19:9). God's hand is clearly at work, for she “happens upon” the field of Boaz, Naomi's kinsman (v3). A diligent man, Boaz comes to see the state of his harvest with a blessing for his reapers who bless him in return (v4). Like any good love story, he spots the fair maiden, and inquires of his steward as to who she was (v5); the steward provides a thorough report: 1) she was the Moabitess who'd returned with Naomi, 2) she'd sought permission to exercise her right to glean, and 3) she'd displayed a remarkable work-ethic (vv6-7). Boaz speaks to Ruth, inviting her to glean permanently in his fields, permitting her to work alongside his maidens without harassment by his young men, and encouraging her to help herself to the cool waters of his wells (vv8-9, Cf. 2 Sam. 23:15). She bows in reverence, asking as to how she, a stranger, should procure his grace (v10). He explains that he'd heard the full tale of her loyalty to Naomi, forsaking her own land (v11), and he speaks a word of covenant blessing over her, for by her faith Jehovah's wings were spread over her (v12). She expresses her gratitude (v13), but his kindness to her is not yet done, for he welcomes her to dine with him & his harvesters (v14), and then instructs his reapers to purposefully make her gleaning both easier (v15), more abundant, and hassle-free (v16). After Ruth's full day of work, she returned to Naomi with the abundance of her industry: arms full of blessing (vv17-18). Naomi insists on knowing who to bless for this bounty, and Ruth informs her it was Boaz (v19). This news incites Naomi to burst forth in prayer & praise, explaining the importance of their relation to Boaz (v20). Ruth and Naomi then agree that this gleaning arrangement should be continued (vv21-23). THE ONE WHO CLUNG In some Rabbinic tradition Orpah is known as “the one who kissed,” and Ruth is known as “the one who clung.” Ruth clung to Naomi, displaying a true conversion to the God of Naomi. In Chapter 2, Boaz invites Ruth to cling to his fields amidst his handmaids and young men until the end of the harvest (Cf. 2:8,21); which is the very thing she does (2:23). This is the same word that's elsewhere used to describe a husband cleaving to his wife (Gen. 2:24). The Lord repeatedly tells Israel to cleave unto Him (Deu. 10:20, 11:22, 13:4, 30:20); and to not cling unto the cursed things (Deu. 13:17) or else the curses will cling to them (Deu. 28). Joshua renews the insistence that Israel continue cleaving to the Lord, if she would enjoy the Deuteronomic blessing (Jos. 22:5, 23:8,12). But Bethlehem has been under the curse of God, as evident by the famine. However, Ruth has come to cling to Naomi and her God; and now in Boaz, she clings to the fields of Israel. In contrast, Elimelech forsook the fields of Israel for the fields of Moab. Ruth has clung to God, and as the story unfolds we wait to see whether this clinging will result in blessing. We often want to see the blessing before we cling in faith. But Ruth displays the life of true faith, clinging comes first. Faith and then sight. As the hymn writer put it, “Nothing in my hands I bring, simply to Thy cross I cling.” THE MIGHTY MAN The arrival of Boaz into the narrative is meant to tantalize us, but not satisfy us. He's a close kin of Naomi, and thus he could fulfill the required duty of redeeming her, and raising up an heir for Elimelech (Deu. 25:5). There are a few things we learn about Boaz. He himself apparently doesn't have an heir. He was the son of Salmon and Rahab. Some scholars object to the timeline, and insist that the genealogy at the end of the book must have been streamlined. But this just shows a lack of imagination and basic math skills. John Tyler (born 1790), our tenth president (1841-1845), still has a living grandson. In other words, it is not at all unlikely that Boaz's mother was indeed that famous Jerichoite, Rahab. So his own mother had been a Gentile stranger who came to rest in the land of Israel. He was likely rather old, as his referring to Ruth as “my daughter” indicates. His care of her is initially paternal. He is a mighty one. And, as we see, a man of profound generosity. His charity is notable, and worthy of emulation. But most importantly, he's a possible Kinsman-redeemer for Naomi and Ruth. LIGHT IN THE SHADOWS This whole section is laden with important symbolism. There's a contrast being made between how Boaz treats this Moabitess with how Moab treated Israel during her wanderings (Deut. 23:3-4). Another shadow which is being illuminated for us is in the language used to describe Ruth's departure from the land of her nativity (2:11). It calls to mind Abram's departure out of Ur. Boaz's feast invites us to see in him a sort of Melchizedek, bringing wine and bread to this feminine version of Abram. The first man, Elimelech & his sons, left Naomi and Ruth in a wasteland. Not unlike Adam in Eden. Boaz arises to be a sort of second Adam. He is painted as what a good and godly king ought to be. Mighty, diligent to know the state of his flocks & fields (Pro 27:23), overflowing generosity, a mouth full of blessing. He is indeed a portrait of a godly patriarch, and all this is aimed to reinforce the Davidic Kingdom. UNDER JEHOVAH'S WINGS The only place of protection is under the wings of Jehovah. This expression will come into play again in the next chapter. But to be under the wings of Jehovah is likely a reference to the wings of the cherubim, which covered the ark of covenant. It was by the blood, sprinkled on the mercy seat, whereby all of Israel rested under the blessing and protection of God. The story of Ruth is the story of the Redemption of the world in miniature. It sets before you the question: have you come to rest under the wings of Jehovah? Ruth the barren, brings to Naomi, in the midst of her bitter trial, armloads of sweet blessing. Where did this abundance come from? It came from resting under the Shadow of the Almighty. But the blessings here only foreshadow greater blessings which await these godly women. This truth remains unchanged. Many people want God's blessing, but they do not want to forsake Moab's fields. They want their arms loaded full with the harvest, but they do not want to cleave to the fields of Boaz. God's blessing is found, even in the midst of bitter trial, by clinging to Him alone, obeying His Covenant Word, and steadfastly hoping in the promised Seed. Naomi gives a speech at the end of each chapter. The first chapter is her cry of godly despair; she even refuses to call God by His covenant name, opting instead to call Him El Shaddai (the Almighty). But here at the close of chapter 2, she praises Jehovah, and His covenant-mercies. The Redeemer arises, to make good on all the promised covenant blessings.

En la primera reunión les preguntaron a los interesados ​​si tenían pedidos o agradecimientos para expresarle a Dios en oración. Casi todos los presentes dijeron algún pedido; yo agradecí a Dios por algunas oraciones respondidas y le pedí, junto con mi esposa, que nos permitiera tener un bebé.Un hombre que nos estaba acompañando allí por primera vez, levantó la mano y dijo: «Siervo de Dios, el Señor me ha dicho que dentro de noventa días tu esposa estará embarazada». Hubo un silencio entre los presentes y todos pusieron sus ojos en mí para ver qué respondería.Hice la aclaración que si el mensaje era de Dios su profecía se cumpliría, ya que la Biblia dice: «Tú no tengas miedo de ese profeta, que si llega a hablar en mi nombre y sus palabras no se cumplen ni se hacen realidad, eso hará ver que yo, el Señor, no he hablado, y que tal profeta habló con arrogancia» (Deut. 18:22). Luego de leer el versículo, él aseguró con más énfasis su profecía y hechos anteriores que habían predicho y se habían cumplido.Este hombre nunca más volvió al estudio bíblico, pero todo el grupo esperó los noventa días y cada tanto grababan el incidente con el autonombrado profeta. Con mi esposa usar la seguridad de que nada pasaría, ya que el testimonio de ese hombre no era el de un hijo de Dios. Y al cabo de los noventa dias no paso nada. Mi primera beba llegó a nuestro hogar dos años después de ese incidente.El pueblo de Dios siempre estuvo rodeado de falsos profetas. Nehemías estaba realizando una obra magnífica al terminar de construir los muros de Jerusalén, pero los enemigos habían sobornado al profeta Semaías ya la profetiza Noadías para atemorizarlo. Nehemías escuchó la profecía y comprendió que «Dios no los había enviado», sino que eran parte de las maquinaciones para que la obra se detuviera.En su sermón profético, Jesús anunció que el pueblo que viva antes de la segunda venida estará rodeado de falsos profetas que «harán grandes señales y prodigios, de tal manera que, de ser posible, engañarán incluso a los elegidos» (Mat. 24: 24). ¡Qué importante es en este tiempo fortalecer nuestra fe con las Escrituras! La Biblia, y la Biblia sola, será la espada que nos permitirá combatir contra los emisarios del error.

Parsha Talk, with Rabbis Eliot Malomet, Barry Chesler and Jeremy Kalmanofsky. Parashat Nitzavim [Deut. 29:9-30:20] is the last parashah of 5782, and the third from the end of the weekly readings [V-zot Ha-b'rakhah (Deut. 33:1-34:12), the last parashah, is read on the morning of Simchat Torah (this year, Tuesday, October 18, 2022)]. Nitzavim begins with the declaration that “You stand this day, all of you, before the Lord your God . . . to enter into the covenant of the Lord your God, which the Lord your God is concluding with you this day. . . “ (29:9-11 [NJPS]). The Torah goes on to elaborate, “I make this covenant . . . not with you alone, but both with those who are standing here with us this day before the Lord our God and with those who are not with us here this day (29:13-14). This led us to a discussion of which looms larger in our imagination, the Revelation at Sinai or the Coveant Renewal in the plains of Moab. We managed to mention, and discuss, the last verse of the parashah as well, which also serves as a coda to this section of Deuteronomy. Professor Jeffrey Tigay labels the remaining 4 chapters [Va-yelekh, Ha'azinu, and Ve-zot Ha-b'rakhah] as an Epilogue, describing Moses' Last Days. With best wishes for a Shabbat Shalom and Shanah Tovah!

The UN Secretary-General is warning of a coming “winter of global discontent” - a new Dark Winter - as we drastically react to issues to save the world by “2030.” While some believe the German Diplomat Friedrich Merz was leaking information about a massive event on September 24, 2022, others believe he misspoke. Either way, the date aligns with the year of Jubilee and shmita - the Jewish New Year - and the month of Elul. Since Shmita is a time when the soil is put to rest (every seven years) and debts are relieved (Lev. 25:4 / Deut. 15: 1-2), and because major financial collapses tend to occur during these times, many are concerned of some coming economic collapse or reset. We are already seeing the resting of soils and supply chains. But there is a bigger picture. Elul means ‘the king is in the field', an interesting translation considering we have a new King. Charles took power after seven official days of mourning for Queen Elizabeth II, who ruled for 70 years, and was even coronated over a 7 month world tour. Since she died during a shamita and Jubilee year, it cannot be coincidence that there are 7 years - hard ones the UN tells us - until that 2030 marker. In other words, the 7 years of Tribulation. The idea is that sometime sooner than later King Charles will transfer power to his son Prince William. The Coat of Arms for Charles has the saying, "Y Ddraig Goch Ddyry Cychwyn," meaning “The red dragon gives the lead.” In Revelation 13:2, “The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne…” Charles was also sculpted into a winged savior in 2002, who could “lead” us into a better world. With warnings from the Serbian President that a global war is coming, and concerns over Ukraine being the seat of Armageddon, it would seem Biblical prophecy and mythological lore are being fulfilled. However, the false messianic Kingdom that the counterfeit royals are establishing will not fall after only “forty-two months.” It is at this point the faithful will lose faith in their savior and at which point the Beast will have His victory. This makes the royals the FALSUS REPARATOR MUNDI, or the False Restorer of the World.

Did it ever work? Seriously was there a time that you could just yell out “stop in the name of the law” and people were like - Darn it, I was just about to get away with it… but they yelled stop in the name of the law.    Ceremonial Law – this was a brand-new set of laws that God gave to Moses that were specifically for the nation of Israel as a theocracy.  These laws dealt with the qualifications for priests, requirements for how and when to perform sacrifices, cleanliness laws, dietary laws, festival laws and tithing laws.  Ceremonial Law: This type of law related to Israel's worship. (Lev 1:1-13) The laws pointed forward to Jesus Christ and were no longer necessary after Jesus' death and resurrection. Though we are no longer bound to them, the principles behind the ceremonial laws, to worship and love God, still apply. Civil(Judicial) Law – All nations must have civil laws to help deal with disputes between their citizens as well as to enforce the morals of the people.  While not all of the Mosaic civil laws dealt with moral issues, a great deal of the Civil laws for Israel did in fact deal with how to punish or make restitution for violation of God's moral laws.  So, when we examine the Old Testament to search for the moral law of God – we must look for moral laws that stand alone as well as civil laws which prescribe punishment and restitution for breaking God's moral laws. Civil Law: This law dictated Israel's daily living (Deut 24:10-11); but modern society and culture are so radically different that some of these guidelines cannot be followed specifically. The principles behind the commands are to guide our conduct.   Moral Law – this is law which reflects God's character and his design of this world. Examples of this law would include but are not limited to commands regarding murder, children honoring and obeying their parents, adultery, covetousness and theft. Moral Law: The moral laws are direct commands of God. A good example is the Ten Commandments (Ex 20:1-17).   The biblical view of scripture/law and primarily abortion or homosexuality. When people say that there are laws in the bible about don't eating shell fish, don't wear wool mix clothes, don't wear pants, don't wear your hair down… one must understand that there were 3 types of law given in scripture. Ceremonial, Civil and Moral. Ceremonial and civil were based on that time in history, context and history. But moral law is based on the character of God, it is unchanging. Jesus affirmed this by saying I came not to destroy the law, but to fulfill it. We could keep the ceremonial and civil, but we can't keep the moral without the life giving spirit of Jesus.    The moral laws reveal the nature and will of God, and still apply to us today. We do not obey this moral law as a way to obtain salvation, but to live in ways pleasing to God.                                   Starting October 16th… in times of chaos it is good to have a strong understanding of the following.  Is There More to Life than This? Who is Jesus? Why Did Jesus Die? How Can We I Have Faith? Why and How Do I Pray? Why and How Should I Read the Bible? How Does God Guide Us? Who is the Holy Spirit? What Does the Holy Spirit Do?

Psalm 1:1-2 - Delighting In God's Word

God's covenant with Israel made it clear that He would bless their obedience and judge their disobedience (Lev. 26; Deut. 28). This is the story line through the entire Old Testament. God's Word also makes it very clear that this same principle is true for everyone. For the most part, God's blessings are conditional! The person described here in Psalm 1:1-2 is one who is being encouraged to meet these conditions and therefore enjoy the blessings of God. If we want God's blessing, we, too, must meet the conditions. The first thing we notice, if we want to blessed, is that we must be directed by the Word of God (v. 1). Israel was a unique people; they were among the other nations, but they were often warned not to be contaminated by them (Num. 23:9; Ex. 19:5-6; Deut. 32:8-10; 33:28). Psalm 106 is a history psalm that describes what happened when Israel learned the ways of the pagan nations around them. It was not good! If they were to receive and enjoy God's blessings, they were to separate themselves from the ways of the ungodly people surrounding them. It is the same with God's people today: we are in the world but not of the world. Jesus prayed about this for us in John 17:11-17. We must beware of friendship with the world (James 4:4) that leads to being spotted by the world (James 1:27) and even loving the world (1 John 2:15-17). The result will be conforming to the world (Rom. 12:1-2) and, if we don't repent, being condemned with the world (1 Cor. 11:32). Lot looked toward Sodom, pitched his tent toward Sodom, and soon moved into Sodom (Gen. 13:10-12; 14:12). Though he was a saved man (2 Peter 2:7-8), Lot lost all that he had when the Lord destroyed the cities of the plain (Gen. 18-19; 1 Cor. 3:11-23). We move into sin and disobedience gradually (see Prov. 4:14-15 and 7:6). If you follow the wrong counsel, then you will stand with the wrong companions and finally sit with the wrong crowd. When Jesus was arrested, Peter didn't follow Christ's counsel and flee from the garden (Matt. 26:31; John 16:32; 18:8), but followed “afar off” and entered the high priest's courtyard. There he stood with the enemy (John 18:15-18) and ultimately sat with them (Luke 22:55). The result was denying Christ three times. In verse 1, the "ungodly" are people who willfully and persistently practice evil; "sinners" are those who miss the mark of God's standards but who don't care; the "scornful" make light of God's laws and ridicule that which is sacred (see Prov. 1:22; 3:24; 21:24). When laughing at holy things and disobeying holy laws become entertainment, then people have reached a low level indeed. Secondly, if we want to receive and enjoy God's blessings, we must be delighted with the Word of God (v. 2). We move from the negative in verse 1 to the positive in verse 2. Delighting in the Word and meditating on the Word must go together (Psalm 119:15-16, 23-24, 47-48, 77-78), for whatever we enjoy, we think about and pursue. "Meditate" in the Hebrew means "to mutter, to read in an undertone." Orthodox Jews speak as they read the Scriptures, meditate and pray. God's Word is in their mouth (Josh. 1:8). If we speak to the Lord about the Word, the Word will speak to us about the Lord. This is what is meant by "abiding in the Word" (1 John 2:14, 24). As God's people, we should prefer God's Word to food (119:103; Job 23:12; Jer. 15:17; Matt. 4:4; 1 Peter 2:2), to sleep (119:55, 62, 147-148, 164), to wealth (119:14, 72, 127, 162), and even to friends (119:23, 51, 95, 119). The way we treat the Bible is the way we treat Jesus Christ, for the Bible is His Word to us. Today, may the Lord help us to receive God's Word by reading it, memorizing it, meditating on it, and then by His grace and with His help, obey it in every area of our lives! God bless!

     As Christians living in the dispensation of the church age, we are not under the Mosaic Law as the rule for life (Rom 6:14; Heb 8:13), but are under the Law of Christ (1 Cor 9:21; Gal 6:2). Israelites, living under the Mosaic Law were promised physical blessings if they obeyed the Lord's directives (Deut 28:1-14), and physical curses if they disobeyed (Deut 28:15-68). For Christians, our blessings from the Lord can be physical (1 Tim 6:17-19), but are primarily spiritual in nature (Eph 1:3). And we are not said to be cursed when we disobey, but we do come under God's discipline (Heb 12:5-11), and this because ongoing sin impairs our walk with Him and stunts our spiritual growth.      As God's children, He has equipped us with the knowledge and power to live righteously (2 Tim 3:16-17; Tit 2:11-14; 2 Pet 1:2-3). Daily sin is handled by means of confession directly to the Lord, who always forgives (1 John 1:9). However, unconfessed sin and failure to advance spiritually can bring God's discipline. He loves us enough not to leave us where we are, and desires that we advance to spiritual maturity (Heb 6:1; cf., 1 Cor 14:20; Eph 4:11-13). This means we learn to deal with our sin based on His resources (so that we sin less), and pursue the Christian virtues He desires to see in us.      Hebrews 12:4-11 is a key passage related to God's discipline in the life of a Christian. In the letter, the writer states, “You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in your striving against sin” (Heb 12:4). According to Zane Hodges, “By ‘sin' the author probably primarily meant that of ‘sinful men' who opposed them, but doubtless also had their own sin in mind, which they had to resist in order to maintain a steadfast Christian profession.”[1] Biblically, we should personally strive against committing sin; however, the reality is that we do not. Some of us barely struggle at all. Where we break down in our personal efforts, God will work in and around us to help us grow. It is written, “You have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as sons, ‘My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor faint when you are reproved by Him; 6 for those whom the Lord loves He disciplines, and He scourges every son whom He receives'” (Heb 12:5-6).      In these verses, the writer uses the Greek word for an adult son (υἱός huios) and not that of a newborn (βρέφος brephos) or young child (παιδίον paidion). According to Warren Wiersbe, “A parent who would repeatedly chasten an infant child would be considered a monster. God deals with us as adult sons because we have been adopted and given an adult standing in His family (see Rom 8:14–18; Gal 4:1–7). The fact that the Father chastens us is proof that we are maturing, and it is the means by which we can mature even more.”[2] The noun (παιδεία paideia) in Hebrews 12:5 refers to the process whereby adult children are groomed for holy living. It is “the act of providing guidance for responsible living, upbringing, training, instruction, [which] is attained by discipline, correction, of the holy discipline of a fatherly God.”[3] The verb (παιδεύω paideuo) in Hebrews 12:6 means “to provide instruction for informed and responsible living, educate…to assist in the development of a person's ability to make appropriate choices, practice discipline”[4] Wiersbe states: "Chastening is the evidence of the Father's love. Satan wants us to believe that the difficulties of life are proof that God does not love us, but just the opposite is true. Sometimes God's chastening is seen in His rebukes from the Word or from circumstances. At other times He shows His love by punishing (“the Lord…scourgeth”) us with some physical suffering. Whatever the experience, we can be sure that His chastening hand is controlled by His loving heart. The Father does not want us to be pampered babies; He wants us to become mature adult sons and daughters who can be trusted with the responsibilities of life."[5]      As Christians, we must learn to expect God to discipline us, as He uses His Word and the hardships of life to mold our characters. God's discipline is a sign of His love for us, and “It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline?” (Heb 12:7). MacDonald states, “when testings come to us, we should realize that God is treating us as sons. In any normal father-son relationship, the father trains his son because he loves him and wants the best for him. God loves us too much to let us develop naturally.”[6]      And God does not discipline the devil's children, but He does discipline His own; for “if you are without discipline, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons” (Heb 12:8). There may be times when unbelievers get away with certain sins and even seem to enjoy the blessings of this life without hardship (Psa 73:1-12). But this is not so with God's children, as He desires greater blessings for us, both in time and eternity. The wise gardener never spends her time pruning the neighbor's weeds, but only her roses, and this because she desires greater beauty from them.      God's loving discipline is consistent with that of a good father who loves his children and trains them in righteous living. For “we had earthly fathers to discipline us, and we respected them; shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of spirits, and live? For they disciplined us for a short time as seemed best to them, but He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share His holiness” (Heb 12:9-10). God's desire is to refine us into the godly persons He wants us to be. By means of discipline, He seeks to burn away the dross of weak character and sinful habits and to refine those golden qualities He wants to see in us; the godly qualities that make us better. God always disciplines us for our good, that “we may share in His holiness” (Heb 12:10). According to John Jowett: "The purpose of God's chastening is not punitive but creative. He chastens “that we may share His holiness.” The phrase “that we may share” has direction in it, and the direction points toward a purified and beautified life. The fire which is kindled is not a bonfire, blazing heedlessly and unguardedly, and consuming precious things; it is a refiner's fire, and the Refiner sits by it, and He is firmly and patiently and gently bringing holiness out of carelessness and stability out of weakness. God is always creating even when He is using the darker means of grace. He is producing the fruits and flowers of the Spirit. His love is always in quest of lovely things."[7]      As God's children, we must learn to operate by divine viewpoint and live above the daily grind of life with all its difficulties and hardships. When we operate by divine viewpoint and live by faith, we can be thankful for God's loving work in our lives which, over time, yields godly fruit in the lives of His humble and obedient children. It is by divine viewpoint that we realize, “All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful” (Heb 12:11a). It is the natural proclivity of a person to maximize joy and minimize sorrow, and the Christian is no exception. We must never think the absence of joy means the absence of God, for though we often praise Him in the heights, He is with us in the valleys (Psa 23:4), and it is there His work is most impactful. And when God's discipline has taken its course, when we “have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness” (Heb 12:11b). It's always the afterwards that matters most to God, for when the Pruner has done His work in cutting away useless branches that bear no fruit, the benefit is a harvest of right living.      As God's children, He expects us to live holy and righteous lives that conform to His will (Tit 2:11-14; 1 Pet 1:15-16). When we sin, we can be restored to fellowship with God by means of confession (1 John 1:9). If we fail to confess our sins, and choose a sinful lifestyle, we put ourselves in real danger of knowing God's discipline. The wise believer accepts God's correction. The psalmist wrote, “It is good for me that I was afflicted, that I may learn Your statutes” (Psa 119:71), and later said, “I know, O LORD, that Your judgments are righteous, and that in faithfulness You have afflicted me” (Psa 119:75).      Suffering is sometimes removed after the believer confesses his/her sin to God (1 John 1:9). However, sometimes God leaves the suffering, which means His corrective suffering becomes perfective suffering to help us grow spiritually. In corrective suffering, we are outside God's will and are governed by our sin nature and human viewpoint, which cannot sustain the believer in times of trouble. But when we confess our sin to God (1 John 1:9), any residual suffering can be dealt with as we are filled with the Spirit (Eph 5:18), walking by means of the Spirit (Gal 5:16), and living by faith (Heb 10:38; 11:6). The Sin Unto Death      There is a point when a believer can sin and there's no recovery. When that happens, God will bring His child home. The apostle John wrote, “If anyone sees his [Christian] brother committing a sin that does not bring death, he should ask, and God will give life to him—to those who commit sin that doesn't bring death. There is sin that brings death. I am not saying he should pray about that” (1 John 5:16 CSB). It happens from time to time that a Christian will see another Christian “committing a sin.” The apostle John distinguished two kinds of sin in the life of the Christian: the “sin that does not bring death” and the “sin that brings death” (1 John 5:16-17). The “sin that does not bring death” is any sin the Christian commits that does not warrant physical death from the hand of God, though it may bring divine discipline if the believer continues in it. John does not specify which sin leads to death and which sin does not, as the punishment is finally determined by the Lord.      It was a terrible sin when Aaron led the Israelites into idol worship (Ex 32:1-6), but God did not call for Aaron's death. Samson slept with prostitutes (Judg 16:1-4), and though he was disciplined, the Lord did not kill him. When David had an affair with Bathsheba and murdered her husband Uriah, it was a rotten sin that brought divine discipline. The Lord told David, “I will raise up evil against you from your own household” (2 Sam 12:11); however, the Lord also told David, “you shall not die” (2 Sam 12:13), but then disciplined him with the death of his son (2 Sam 12:14). Later, after David confessed his sin, he was restored to ministry (Psa 51:12-13). It was evil when Solomon worshipped idols (1 Ki 11:1-10), but even here the Lord did not pronounce death for Solomon's sin. Peter argued with Jesus and tried to prevent Him from going to the cross (Matt 16:21-22), and later publicly denied the Lord three times (Matt 26:34-35; 69-75), but Peter was allowed to live. The apostle John twice worshiped an angel and was rebuked for it (Rev 19:10; 22:8-9), but the Lord let him live and used him in ministry. God's grace and mercy is very prominent throughout the Bible, and He repeatedly gives us ample opportunity to confess our sin and turn back to him. We know from Scripture that “The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness” (Psa 103:8). Because of this, “He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities” (Psa 103:10). Thank God for His great grace.        But there are sins a believer can commit that can result in physical death. The sin that leads to death, according to Paul Karleen, “denotes a sin habitually practiced by a believer, leading to God's removing him from this life, but not taking away his salvation.”[8] It refers to the believer who has become so sinfully rebellious that God disciplines him to point of death and takes him home to heaven. There are references in the Bible where God personally issued the death penalty for one or more of His erring children who had defied His authority. Examples include: Nadab and Abihu, who disobeyed the Lord in their priestly service (Lev 10:1-3), Uzzah, when he touched the Ark (2 Sam 6:1-7), and Ananias and Sapphira who lied to the Holy Spirit (Acts 5:1-11). The Christians at Corinth experienced stages of discipline which included weakness, sickness, and eventual death (1 Cor 11:30). God's discipline is never to condemn, which cannot happen (Rom 8:1), for “when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with the world” (1 Cor 11:32).      Under the Mosaic Law, God willed that sin be punished, but only some sins were punishable by physical death.[9] Sometimes God Himself executed the punishment (Lev 10:1-3; 2 Sam 6:1-7), and other times it was carried out by Israel's leaders (Ex 32:19-28). In the New Testament, God does not call Christians to put anyone to death, but has delegated that authority solely to the governments of this world (Rom 13:1-6), or He does it Himself (Acts 5:1-11; 1 Cor 11:30; 1 John 5:16). Personal sins that impact only the believer are differentiated from sins that harm others. Divine discipline is only related to our time on earth, as there will be no need for discipline in the eternal state (Rev 21:3-4).      Many Christians rightfully suffer because of their sinful lifestyle (1 Pet 4:15), and those who persist in their sin will eventually die by the hand of the Lord. Such a death is the pinnacle of suffering in this life, but we should never conclude that it means suffering for eternity. All believers are eternally secure in Christ. At the moment of salvation, all believers are given eternal life and imputed with God's righteousness (John 3:16; 10:28; Rom 5:17; 2 Cor 5:21; Phil 3:9). They are forever kept by the power of God and cannot forfeit their salvation (John 10:29; Rom 8:38-39). This means that when believers die—whatever the cause—they are guaranteed heaven as their eternal home. At the resurrection, the Christian is guaranteed a new body just the like body of our Lord Jesus, which has no sin (Phil 3:20-21).  Summary      It is possible for a Christian to sin, and to sin as badly as any unbeliever. However, unlike the unbeliever, God disciplines His own (Heb 12:5-11), and, if necessary, disciplines to the point of death (1 Cor 11:30; 1 John 5:16). This need not be the case. The Christian is called to a life of holiness (1 Pet 1:15-16), and this means learning to walk with God and do His will. Though we still possess a sin nature, Christians know victory because of our union with Christ (Rom 6:6, 11-13), and our walk of faith (Heb 10:38; 11:6). When filled with the Spirit (Eph 5:18), and walking by means of the Spirit (Gal 5:16), we can learn to embrace trials and even rejoice in them (Rom 5:3-5; Jam 1:2-4). Dr. Steven R.

I'm amazed how God used people to give us the greatest Book in human history and that we have no idea who some of them are. The songs, praises and prayers that make up the Book of Psalms were written by different people over the course of many centuries. We know that David wrote about 73 of the Psalms and we have the names of many of the other authors that we read in the preface of their Psalm. But we can only speculate who might have put all the Psalms together into one book. We know that Psalms as a whole, is and always has been considered to be a part the inspired Scriptures. God is the Divine Author of the Book of Psalms, but He did use the different writers to pen it for us. We believe that God also miraculously preserved His Word and divinely guided those who put it together into one book we call the Holy Bible. The unity of the 66 books of the Bible testify of their divine inspiration. The New Testament writers believed that Psalms was divine Scripture as they quoted from it some 400 different times. Jesus often quoted from the Psalms. After His resurrection when He was in the upper room with His disciples He said: "These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me. And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures.” (Luke 24:44-45) I said all that to say this. The very first Psalm, placed here by “someone”, gives us a major theme for the whole book. Psalm 1 points the way to blessing and warns about divine judgment. These are frequent themes throughout The Psalms. The images in this psalm would remind the reader of earlier teachings in the Old Testament. In Genesis, you find people walking with God (5:21, 24; 6:9; 17:1), the life-giving river (2:10-14), and trees and fruit (2:8-10). The law of the Lord (v. 2), connects the psalm with Exodus through Deuteronomy. Finding success by meditating on that law and obeying it reminds us of Joshua 1:8. The psalm presents two ways—the way of blessing and the way of judgment—which was the choice Israel had to make (Deut. 30:15, 19). Jesus used a similar image (Matt. 7:13-14). Bible history seems to be built around the concept of "two men": the "first Adam" and the "last Adam" (Rom. 5; 1 Cor. 15:45)—Cain and Abel, Ishmael and Isaac, Esau and Jacob, David and Saul—and Bible history culminates in Christ and Antichrist. Two men, two ways, two destinies. God sees but two persons in this world: the godly, who are "in Christ", and the ungodly, who are "in Adam" (1 Cor. 15:22, 49). The godly person is the “blessed” person because they have repented of their sins and received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. The moment they did this the Holy Spirit baptized, put them into, Jesus Christ! “For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body…” (1 Corinthians 12:13). Paul put it this way in Romans 6:3, “Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?” Today, you are either in Christ or in Adam. You are either saved or you are lost. You are either on your way to heaven or you are on your way to hell. Jesus said, “Broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many there be that are on it. Narrow is the gate that leads to life and few there be that find it.” Jesus is that gate, that door, the only way to forgiveness of sins and eternal life. In John 10:9-10 Jesus said, “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

Parsha Talk, with Rabbis Eliot Malomet, Barry Chesler and Jeremy Kalmanofsky. Parashat Ki Tavo [Deuteronomy 26:1–29:8] features some texts which appear in Mishnah Sotah 7, where there is a discussion about which texts may be recited in any language, meaning a language one understands, and which must be recited in Hebrew, presumably because the ritual itself is what is important, and not so much one's understanding. In the latter group [actually mentioned first in the Mishnah] is the passage recited by the farmer who brings his first fruits [Deut. 26:5–11] and the blessings and curses [Deut. 27:12–26}, which is something of an anomaly because they were only recited once, when the Israelites crossed over the Jordan into the Promised Land [see Josh. 8] In the former group is the vidui ma'aser, the confession over the tithe [Deut. 26:12–16]. We spent most of our time discussing the ritual of the first fruits and the confession of the tithe, which more than filled up our time. Give a listen! Shabbat Shalom!!
