To Hear and Obey

In this day and age there are many voices clamoring to be heard. Everyone has an answer and an opinion. But what if there were only one voice to be heard? Only one opinion? I along with other like minded people have been seeking, knocking and asking. For a surety there are two voices speaking in the world today. One voice is saying "take your life in your own hands as you see your own needs". The other voice is saying "give up your life, follow me, give me control of your life". The first voice mentioned here seems to be the most popular. So the obvious decision here is to hear the second voice "give up your life" and go with the minority. For with this voice if we follow will lead to a very narrow road. This road is not the scenic route either. Most maps will tell you that it doesn't even exist. In fact if you travel this path everyone around you will do everything in their power to get you off of it. I sincerely hope you have already made a decision to take this road, and since so few choose it may we see each other often in the fellowship on it. If you have not made this decision I pray that you would follow this journey. Shalom, Chris

A Contrite Spirit

First I must apologize, I don't have a clue how to display the paleo hebrew. It just shows up as boxes. Maybe the computer is not smart enough to recognize it. This is a follow up to what I wrote on "grace/beauty".
I wanted to look at Moshe. Was he not a broken man, from the palace to the fields. Alife of luxury to a nomadic existence. His people captive to a dictator who desired oppression for the Y'israelites. I see his brokeness as the preliminary ingredient to what we looked at for "grace/beauty". The best part of this study is where Messiah appears in the aleph/tav.

Ps 34:18 YHWH is near to them that are of a broken heart; and saves such as be of a contrite spirit.

Psa 34:18 ) קרוב יהוה לנשׁברי־לב ואת־דכאי־רוח יושׁיע׃

In the strongs there really isn’t a definition for this. Strongs #853
