“Today is fifty days of the Omer which is Shavuot.”

The theme is the culmination of all His Attributes of: Chesed, Gevurah, Tiferit, Netzach, Hod, Yesod, and Malchut, Loving-kindness, Strength, Beauty, Victory, Glory, Intimacy and Majesty.

I will allow the text to speak for themselves as we celebrate the giving of the Torah and the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit).

Psalm 105

 1O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.
 2Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.
 3Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.
 4Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore.
 5Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;
 6O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen.

Lev. 23: 9-22 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest unto the priest: And he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it. And ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf an he lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto the LORD. And the meat offering thereof shall be two tenth deals of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire unto the LORD for a sweet savour: and the drink offering thereof shall be of wine, the fourth part of an hin. And ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor green ears, until the selfsame day that ye have brought an offering unto your God: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete: Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the LORD. Ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of two tenth deals; they shall be of fine flour; they shall be baken with leaven; they are the firstfruits unto the LORD. And ye shall offer with the bread seven lambs without blemish of the first year, and one young bullock, and two rams: they shall be for a burnt offering unto the LORD, with their meat offering, and their drink offerings, even an offering made by fire, of sweet savour unto the LORD. Then ye shall sacrifice one kid of the goats for a sin offering, and two lambs of the first year for a sacrifice of peace offerings. And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the firstfruits for a wave offering before the LORD, with the two lambs: they shall be holy to the LORD for the priest. And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame day, that it may be an holy convocation unto you: ye shall do no servile work therein: it shall be a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations. And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not make clean riddance of the corners of thy field when thou reapest, neither shalt thou gather any gleaning of thy harvest: thou shalt leave them unto the poor, and to the stranger: I am the LORD your God.

Numbers 28:26-30 Also in the day of the firstfruits, when ye bring a new meat offering unto the LORD, after your weeks be out, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: But ye shall offer the burnt offering for a sweet savour unto the LORD; two young bullocks, one ram, seven lambs of the first year; And their meat offering of flour mingled with oil, three tenth deals unto one bullock, to tenth deals unto one ram, A several tenth deal unto one lamb, throughout the seven lambs; And one kid of the goats, to make an atonement for you. Ye shall offer them beside the continual burnt offering, and his meat offering, (they shall be unto you without blemish) and their drink offerings.

Acts 2

 1And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
 2And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
 3And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
 4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
 5And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
 6Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
 7And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?
 8And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?
 9Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,
 10Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,
 11Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
 12And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?
 13Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.
 14But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:
 15For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.
 16But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
 17And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:
 18And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
 19And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
 20The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:
 21And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
 22Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
 23Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:
 24Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.
 25For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
 26Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
 27Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
 28Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
 29Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.
 30Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
 31He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.
 32This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
 33Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.
 34For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
 35Until I make thy foes thy footstool.
 36Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
 37Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
 38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
 39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call.
 40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.
 41Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
 42And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
 43And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.
 44And all that believed were together, and had all things common;
 45And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.
 46And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
 47Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

Shalom, Shalom, Chag Semeach Shavuot!

“Today is thirty-nine days which are five weeks and four days of the Omer.”

·       Theme of the Week: Yesod - Intimacy
·       Theme of the Day: Netzach - Victory
·       Overall Theme: The Victory of His Intimacy
·       Psalm 98

When you are madly in love and are intimate with the Creator, God not only rules the world but your heart as well and therefore we have victory over sin.

The Traditional Psalm to read is Psalm 98:

Psalm 98

 1O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.
 2The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.
 3He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
 4Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
 5Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.
 6With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.
 7Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
 8Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together
 9Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.

“Abba ADONAI God, I praise You and thank You for the victory I have in my life because of my Intimate relationship with You. In Messiah Yeshua’s Name I pray, Ameyn.”

“Today is forty-eight days which are six weeks and five days of the Omer.”

·       Theme of the Week: Malchut - Majesty
·       Theme of the Day: Yesod - Intimacy
·       Overall Theme: The Intimacy of His Majesty
·       Psalm 148

It’s no coincidence that the overall theme is the Intimacy of His Majesty because it was today when ADONAI told Moses to tell the Israel that they had three days to prepare to be intimate with Him. What happens before a date, wedding or anniversary? Hours of primping and preparation: bath, make-up, hair, clothes, etc., all in preparation for one type of intimacy or another. And ironically to become intimate with God they had to abstain from intimacy from their spouses.

Exodus 19:14-15 And Moses went down from the mount unto the people, and sanctified the people; and they washed their clothes. And he said unto the people, Be ready against the third day: come not at your wives.

The Theme here is sanctification.

I John 1:7-9 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.


Psalm 148

 1Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights.
 2Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.
 3Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.
 4Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.
 5Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.
 6He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass.
 7Praise the LORD from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps:
 8Fire, and hail; snow, and vapours; stormy wind fulfilling his word:
 9Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:
 10Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl:
 11Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth:
 12Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:
 13Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.
 14He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye the LORD.

“Abba ADONAI God, clean, cleanse and purify me! Prepare me to come into Your Presence to intimately meet with You so You may tell me what You would have me to know and do. In Yeshua’s Name I pray, Ameyn.”

“Today is forty-seven days which are six weeks and five days of the Omer.”

·       Theme of the Week: Malchut - Majesty
·       Theme of the Day: Hod - Glory
·       Overall Theme: The Glory of His Majesty
·       Psalm 130

Majesty is looking upon Holy Royalty and knowing the Power that is there; Glory is seeing that Power made manifest. It’s seeing the cavalry coming in the heat of battle when you are tempted to think all is lost. Glory is also that “ah-ha” moment, that illumination of revelation when you get to see and know His Majesty more clearly. When we in turn reflect this Victory and revelation we become that radiant glory for Him.
This Psalm is about waiting for the cavalry and seeing the Glory of that long awaited coming.

Psalm 130

 1Out of the depths have I cried unto thee, O LORD.
 2Lord, hear my voice: let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.
 3If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?
 4But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.
 5I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope.
 6My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning.
 7Let Israel hope in the LORD: for with the LORD there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption.
 8And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

“Abba ADONAI God, through Your Loving-kindness, Strength, Beauty and Victory make me into the instrument of Your Glorious Majesty, in the likeness of Messiah Yeshua and it is in His Name I pray, Ameyn.”

“Today is forty-six days which are six weeks and four days of the Omer.”

·       Theme of the Week: Malchut - Majesty
·       Theme of the Day: Netzach - Victory
·       Overall Theme: The Victory of His Majesty
·       Psalm 126

His Majesty represents many things, one of which is Victory. I often think of a Royal Military Parade after a Victory with soldiers with flags in full regalia. Similarly the same sight is seen in praise and worship. Men with tallits waving praise banners and women dancing like Miriam and the women did after crossing the split sea.
Psalm 126 gives us some of the best reasons for this and fleshes out this Victory of His Majesty.

Psalm 126

 1When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.
 2Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them.
 3The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.
 4Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south.
 5They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
 6He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

“Abba ADONAI God, Thank You for the Victory of Your Majesty that is mine in Messiah Yeshua. In His Name I pray, Ameyn.”

“Today is forty-five days, which are six weeks and two days of the Omer.”

·       Theme of the Week: Malchut - Majesty
·       Theme of the Day: Tefreit - Beauty
·       Overall Theme: The Beauty of His Majesty
·       Psalm 112

Psalm 112

 1Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.
 2His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
 3Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
 4Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.
 5A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.
 6Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.
 7He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.
 8His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.
 9He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.
 10The wicked shall see it, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.

Balance and moderation seem to be the key to the majority of things in life and the combination of attributes we have gone through are a perfect example of that. If it were not for this delicate balance you’d almost get a Jeckel and Hyde effect.

First, you had Loving-kindness, then Severity and Strength and now Beauty. All of which are extremes from one another. Along with balance and moderation, timing too is essential; knowing when to employ any given combination of attributes. I suppose this symmetry is the Beauty of His Majesty, like a silent regulator it along with Holiness keeps everything in balance and in check.

We were created symmetrical beings and therefore love and are drawn to things with symmetry and we find beauty in such things. Psalm 112 as we read is all about such Majestically Beautiful Symmetry.

“Abba ADONAI God, though we finite beings are attracted to symmetry, it seems our souls are anything but, ever in flux. We slip and slide from one extreme to another. I guess this testifies to the fact that we like absolutes too. I pray Abba Father that You would conform me into the Perfect and Majestically Beautiful Balance of Your Son Yeshua Messiah, the Living Torah. In His Name I pray, Ameyn.”

“Today is forty-four days, which are six weeks and two days of the Omer.”

·       Theme of the Week: Malchut - Majesty
·       Theme of the Day: Gevurah - Severity and Strength
·       Overall Theme: The Severity and Strength of His Majesty
·       Psalm 111

History is full of negative examples of Earthly Kingdom’s flexing the severity and strength of their majesty by oppression of other peoples. This Psalm today flips the human example and shows us how in a positive way God uses the Severity and Strength of His Majesty to free oppressed people.

Psalm 111

 1Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.
 2The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
 3His work is honourable and glorious: and his righteousness endureth for ever.
 4He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.
 5He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant.
 6He hath shewed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen.
 7The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure.
 8They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness.
 9He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.
 10The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.

“Abba ADONAI God, Thank You that the Severity and Strength of Your Majesty has freed me from oppression. Show me how to use that authority that has been given me to led others to the freedom I live in. In Yeshua’s Name, Ameyn.”
