OMER 43-44

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

Theme of the Week: Malchut - Majesty
Theme of the Day: Chesed – Loving-kindness
Overall Theme: The Loving-kindness of His Majesty

Oft times royalty has a professional distance which can be construed as, or turned into aloofness and we sometimes can’t fathom that majesty can have and should have an element of Loving-kindness to it. But King YHWH, our King is a Majestic King who is Lovingly Kind.

Psalm 106:1-5 Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? who can shew forth all his praise? Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times. Remember me, O LORD, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people: O visit me with thy salvation; That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.

The Psalm of the day, these verses speak of a Loving King who cares for and is intimately involved with His people. He is the model for any world or religious leader.

“Abba YHWH Elohim, I praise and thank You because You are a Holy, Benevolent, Loving King who cares and sacrifices for His people. I am so undeserving of this. Thank You! In the Name of Messiah Yeshua, 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

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 G-d 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 YHWH Elohim, 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.”
