“Today is sixteen days, which are two weeks and two days of the Omer.”

Theme of the Week: Tefreit - Beauty
Theme of the Day: Gevurah – Severity and Strength
Overall Theme: The Severity and Strength of His Beauty.

Esther 2:7, 15-17 And he brought up Hadassah, that is, Esther, his uncle's daughter: for she had neither father nor mother, and the maid was fair and beautiful; whom Mordecai, when her father and mother were dead, took for his own daughter… Now when the turn of Esther, the daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai, who had taken her for his daughter, was come to go in unto the king, she required nothing but what Hegai the king's chamberlain, the keeper of the women, appointed. And Esther obtained favour in the sight of all them that looked upon her. So Esther was taken unto king Ahasuerus into his house royal in the tenth month, which is the month Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign. And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti.

Esther 4:14 For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?

Some guys get real stupid in the presence of a strong beautiful woman.

“Jump off a cliff!” she could say.

“Yes ma’am! Right away miss!” and like lemmings, they’d plunge to their deaths into the sea all because of a pretty face. I guess that goes to show you that not all beauties lack brains or brawn. Just take for instance Esther (Hadassah), and in the apocryphal book Judith (Yehudit), both of which were beautiful women and used their natural beauty to save Israel! Beauty becomes their weapon.

Are you slaying cynicism and skepticism with the strong beauty of your Torah obedient lifestyle, modeled after Yeshua the Messiah?

The Traditional text to read is Psalm 119:121-128

121     ¶ AIN. I have done judgment and justice: leave me not to mine oppressors.
122     Be surety for thy servant for good: let not the proud oppress me.

David wants G-d to fight for him because he has ruled and reigned to the best of his ability through the precepts of Torah.

123     ¶ Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the word of thy righteousness.

Salvation (Yeshua) can only clearly be seen through the Torah.

124     ¶ Deal with thy servant according unto thy mercy, and teach me thy statutes.
125     I am thy servant; give me understanding, that I may know thy testimonies.

Again he so desires to have insight, knowledge, understanding and wisdom in regards to what the Torah is all about.

126     ¶ It is time for thee, LORD, to work: for they have made void thy law.
127     ¶ Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.
128     Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.

David wants to fight for and establish G-d’s Torah among the common people because he knows for the most part they do not know it or keep it. David is a Superman of sorts wanting to fight for “Truth Justice, and the Torah way.”

“Beautiful and All-powerful King of the Universe, Give me a strong beauty Esther and Judith had that I may win the favor of our enemies and thus defeat them with a smile. In Yeshua’s Name I pray, Ameyn.”
