Awaiting The Return of the King on Zion

I often wonder during the pre messianic times in Judea the expectation among the people from the poor masses of people (who were considered rubble) to the Rabbis there was a fervent expectancy of His coming. Have we lost that today? Where is our passion? Where is that eager expectancy?....The time is near...for The Return of the King on Zion.

I love this ancient Jewish song called 'Adon Olam' which talks about the LORD's reign on the Universe and sings praises to His name. Here is the transliteration and translation in Hebrew and English.

Adon olam asher malakh
Be-terem kol yetzir nivra
Le-et na'asa be-cheftzo kol
Azai melekh shemo nikra

Ve-acharei kikholot ha-roi
Levado yimlokh nora
Ve-hu haya ve -hu hove
Ve-hu yihiye be-tifara

Lord of the Universe,
He reigned before creations,
teeming birth;
erst when His fiat
all ordained acknowledged King
Supreme on earth
and, when these worlds
shall pass away
He shall still govern,
sole sublime who was,
Who is and will be aye,
All Glorious to the end of time.

Blessings & Shalom

Gazing upon His face for the Middle East

Mine is a a Jewish heart and I love the heart of God towards His first born, His bride. According to Romans 12 the Jewish people will be redeemed by His saving hand. The middle eastern problem seems to get worse day by day with no human plan attempting to find a solution. I firmly believe until the hand of Yeshua is upon the problem and till He ascends His throne in Jerusalem the unity of His people with the grafted branches of gentiles and Arabs into the vine will not happen.
Let us look and gaze upon His face so that His return on Zion comes quickly.

The music in the video is from a song titled Isaiah 61 by Matt Maher (who you can find on iTunes). The text in the video is taken from Isaiah 1 and 41. The painting of Jesus is from a local artist named Kevin Sparks.I am using this resource in the attempt to bring good news in the more hopeful frame of the Kingdom of God.

Shalom and Blessings,


Jesus Commands my Destiny

OK I am going to try my hand at embedding videos, since so much of video material is becoming so popular on blogosphere. I love this hymn as I ponder on His Amazing Love and the price He paid so my life could be lived in Him and for Him.
