Ten Days of Awe: A Reflection

It is not happenstance that the “Ten Days of Awe” are now (Today, Sept. 14 is Day 5). In G-D’s time clock, everything is perfect. We just came out of Yom Teruah (Rosh Hashanah), a time of hearing the trumpet blast, a time of hearing the shofar blown, a time that reminds us that the Lord of this Universe, the King of Kings is soon to return. And now we are in the “Ten Days of Awe,”  a time when we are praying and seeking the face of G-D and repenting of our sins, for our nation, for Israel, for the Body of Messiah, making amends with those we have harmed.

During these “Ten Days,” we have been in early morning prayer. Several intercessors were on the line praying and interceding, leading up to the Holiest Day of the Year — Yom Kippur (September 18-19). It just reminds me that this is the season where the things that are happening in the earth —Hurricane Florence barreling toward the East Coast,  a couple more hurricanes brewing on the Atlantic, and wildfires in various places — are times when God calls us to reflection.

Where will we be and what will we be doing when we hear that LAST shofar? There will be no other shofar blast after that one, and the Lord has set aside a day where we would, could, hear the blasting, the sounding — in preparation for the final one! I know that we may get excited about hearing that final blast, about being with the One our souls long for (I’m excited), but remember there were 10 virgins: five of them were wise and five of them were foolish! They ALL heard the alarm: “The bridegroom is here! Come out to meet him!” That is the sound of the shofar that announces the coming of the Bridegroom! They all heard it, but not all of them were prepared. I believe that the “Ten Days of Awe” only build our excitement for that LAST shofar, but it also should trigger within us a desire that we would help the five foolish virgins to acquire the extra oil that they need NOW, because that’s the one time the five wise are not encouraged to share. (I will need my own oil!) Let’s help all of G-D’s people to be awakened and prepared for that sound and ready to meet the Bridegroom and to go in to the wedding Feast!  I’m excited!

I want to hear the sound! I am storing up treasures in heaven, and having oil in reserve, but I am concerned about my brother!  Does that mean I want to prolong the day of my Bridegroom’s coming? No, I do not! I want to hasten it because in hastening the day of His coming, He empowers us; He gives us the grace to be able to pray and intercede and to witness and to evangelize and to reach out, and to give to those who are not ready to hear that sound.

So these natural things that are going on in the earth are all connected to the spiritual; they’re all times of awakening. They’re all times of calling the Body of Messiah to wakefulness! That we will not be sleeping! That the Doppler Radar that summons us to attention about the impending hurricane is like the voice of the shofar that warns us about the impending return of Messiah Yeshua! So instead of just grabbing and storing up bread, water, gas, potato chips, nuts, snacks, etc… let’s grab hold to and dispense the commodities of the Kingdom: love, kindness, gentleness, selflessness, humility, mercy, etc…!

The earth is yawning! It is in birthpangs! This is not the way it was created to be! It wants to return to its original state as it was in the Garden, and if the world is yawning, WE ARE ALSO, and deep down our bodies are saying, “I want that place of transparency and vulnerability that Adam and Eve had when they were in the Garden with the One who created them. I want what I am supposed to be! And I want it in its fullness!”
Even so, come Messiah Yeshua! Let the Shofar Blow!

National Day of Prayer

Join us on Thursday, May 3rd as area civic and religious leaders, men, women, boys and girls, converge to pray in UNITY for the state of our country and connect in the Spirit with other intercessors across the US.

The very genesis of revival begins when the Body of Messiah has a hunger for personal righteousness (individual revival); a hunger for righteousness in others (evangelistic revival); and a hunger for righteousness in society (social revival).

We will be praying for the 7 PILLARS of American Society: EDUCATION, GOVERNMENT, BUSINESS, ENTERTAINMENT, FAMILY, MILITARY, and the CHURCH (BODY OF MESSIAH). Come READY — not to spectate BUT — to join your faith and intercession with other believers who fervently pray, “GOD, BLESS AMERICA” and “AMERICA, please BLESS GOD!”

Happy Thanksgiving!

We at Weiss Ministries, Inc. would like to wish you a very happy Thanksgiving.

May you be reminded of all that God has done for you in this year. It is so easy to see and count all the things that God is NOT doing, but it is very difficult to see what He IS doing in such difficult times.

Always remember that there is someone who is in a worse condition than yourself. Let’s learn to thank God that the situation is as well off as it is.

Happy Thanksgiving from our house to yours.

GREAT Is Their Reward!

Remember when the badly ridiculed Hunchback would run into the church of Notre Dame and cry, “Sanctuary” and no one could enter to harm him?

Remember when the church steeple rising above other buildings meant that there was some degree of light, morality, and safety in a city?

Today, believers who go church to find a moment of respite from the daily grind of the world and worship a God of love cannot even hope in those two hours to find peace! Such was the case at First Baptist Church Sutherland Springs on Sunday morning, November 5, 2017 as 26 churchgoers were slaughtered and 8 are still fighting for their lives.

But this, Children of God, is no time to cower or run from our churches and congregations and from the God-given mandate to assemble ourselves together! As surely as the Islamic Jihadists war against democratic societies, the enemy is waging war against the church. One of his greatest tactics is fear. May those of First Baptist Sutherland Springs who got up, dressed themselves, and went up to the house of God, unbeknownst of their fate, receive the blessings of the martyrs: “Blessed are you when men shall revile you and persecute you … for GREAT is your reward” (Matthew 5:11-12).

And May their sacrifice be the fuel by which we, even more aggressively, advance the Kingdom of God! May Texas, like South Carolina, respond in love and forgiveness. And let us, as fellow believers, not waste one drop of their spilled blood!!

Hear us . . . Forgive Us . . . Heal Us!!!! For the Sake of Your Great Name!

Remember Where I Placed You!

long-earth-complete-orbit-around-sun_f22ae7725aac138a(This is a reminder from your Creator)

There are many stars in the sky! They sprinkle the inky darkness with their light,  BUT they are fixed! They stay put!

I didn’t put you on a star!

Asteroids are likely leftovers of early planet formations; they go meandering through space without direction or purpose, eventually breaking up and dissolving in some Galaxy. I didn’t put you on an asteroid!

There are comets shooting through space, giving off beautiful streams of light … for a moment! Here today and gone tomorrow! I did not place you on a comet!

But there is a planet, slanted on its axis — pointed in the direction of its Creator! Earth! On its axis, it rotates, still looking in the direction of the One Who is Greater!  It revolves around the sun, its center! This planet experiences light and darkness, heat and cold. It has a diverse land mass of hills, valleys, caves, mountains, beaches, islands and plains! Three quarters of it is covered by water! I placed it strategically close enough to the sun, the center of its Galaxy, to produce life! It is filled with enough oxygen where cells can grow and be replenished. Flowers, fruit and plants grow out of it! Animals run, creep, scamper and crawl across its terrain, drawing sustenance! Earth has seasons and cycles that bring about endings and beginnings!

THAT’S WHERE I PLACED YOU!!!

Now, BE like the place where I put you, the place I made for YOU, the place out of which I created you!

Remember, you have the potential to now produce MORE than “it” can produce because of My Ruach (Spirit) that I put inside of you!

Even more, YOU can have the perspective that always looks forward to the time when it, like you, will be TRANSFORMED into its resurrected, glorified newness!

Learn a lesson from the Earth.

Chanukah Celebration

jesusourjewishsaviourDid Yeshua celebrate Chanukah?

Should it be important to Christians?

Join us on December 28th, 6:30 p.m., as we celebrate the 5th Night of Chanukah, study John 10 to see what it means when Yeshua went to the Temple during the Feast of Dedication, and explore the answers to these two questions!

You will see the Messiah you love and know in a way you’ve never beheld him before.

Embrace Your Season

CLINTON – TRUMP: God is Not Surprised

160603103300-hillary-clinton-donald-trump-composite-large-169God is not surprised by our current Presidential candidates — Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Businessman Donald Trump. Daniel 2:20-21 says,

“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, For wisdom and might are His. And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kingsHe gives wisdom to the wise…

So if God is not surprised, why are we as His Body surprised? Both Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump are VERY human and VERY flawed — equally as human and equally as flawed. I am not surprised at them — their words, choices, or actions — but I am taken aback by the vitriol and hatred coming out of the believing community directed toward both of them — dividing the Body into Republican Christians and Democratic Christians as opposed to Citizens of the Kingdom first.

What if this — these two nominees — is part of God’s shaking for you . . . for us . . . for the Church, the Bride, the Believers? Paul quotes God as saying,

“Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.” (Hebrews 12:26-27)

Since he is going to shake the earth, will you be the one shaken and falling and lost . . . and removed? God uses times like these to show us what’s in our hearts and minds so that those feelings and thoughts can be mended through repentance! We are even in the Hebrew month Elul — which is a time dedicated just for repentance and turning to God. When the disciples wanted to know if they should pay taxes, the Lord said, “Give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.” Your heart is supposed to be His. His words  . . . yours!

Judgement begins first in the Household of God (1 Peter 4:17), and it is the Body which is first judged. Is this season not our judgement? Is this not our shaking?

This is what God has asked of us, yet from what I see, hear, and read, we are not doing it:

  • First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be offered on behalf of all men for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good and pleasing in the sight of God our Savior,… (1 Timothy 2:1-3)
  • “Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.” (1 Peter 2:17)
  • “Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.” (Titus 3:1-2)
  • “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. (Romans 13:1-2)

He didn’t tell us to laugh over their sickness, pray for their destruction, hold them in derision when they err. Heckle them, make them the brunt of our jokes, hope they die . . . He said to pray . . . and honor . . .

He’s shaking the earth and the heavens because there must be a distinction between His Bride and the World.

But from what I see, we are behaving the same.

After the shaking, the only thing that remains is the unshakeable Kingdom of the Son. Are you in?

PRAYER: Father, forgive us, your Bride, for speaking evil of President Obama, Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump — and then for perpetuating that evil. Help us to pray for them and trust that the one whom You will use to hasten Your return is the one You will place in office. Then, give us the grace to pray for our President, even if he/she is not our choice. We must believe it’s Yours! Help us to trust You!
