89:36) Once have I sworn by my holiness,
I will not lie to David.
89:37) His seed will endure forever,
His throne like the sun before me.
89:38) It will be established forever like the moon,
The faithful witness in the sky.” Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai?? Selah
89:39) But you have rejected and spurned.
You have been angry with your anointed.
89:40) You have renounced the covenant of your servant.
You have defiled his crown in the dust.
89:41) You have broken down all his hedges.
You have brought his strongholds to ruin.
89:42) All who pass by the way rob him.
He has become a reproach to his neighbours.
89:43) You have exalted the right hand of his adversaries.
You have made all of his enemies rejoice.
89:44) Yes, you turn back the edge of his sword,
And have not supported him in battle.
89:45) You have ended his splendour,
And thrown his throne down to the ground.
89:46) You have shortened the days of his youth.
You have covered him with shame.Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??

89:47) How long, Yahuah?
Will you hide yourself forever?
Will your wrath burn like fire?
89:48) Remember how short my time is!
For what vanity have you created all the children of men!
89:49) What man is he who shall live and not see death,
Who shall deliver his soul from the power of She’ol? Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai??Ai?? Selah
89:50) Master, where are your former lovingkindnesses,
Which you swore to David in your faithfulness?
89:51) Remember, Master, the reproach of your servants,
How I bear in my heart the taunts of all the mighty peoples,
89:52) With which your enemies have mocked, Yahuah,
With which they have mocked the footsteps of your anointed one.
89:53) Blessed be Yahuah forevermore. Ameyn, and Ameyn.
ai???They wanted none of my counsel.
They despised all my reproof.
Therefore they will eat of the fruit of their own way,
And be filled with their own schemes.
For the backsliding of the simple will kill them.
The careless ease of fools will destroy them.
But whoever listens to me will dwell securely,
And will be at ease, without fear of harm.” (Prov. 1:30-33).
As Easy As 1-2-3
During a technical conference in my last employment, there was a teaching session regarding the ai???Fire Triangleai??i??. It was said that, in order for a fire to break out, there must be three constituents present: fuel (gasoline, wood, butane), oxygen and a source of heat (flame, spark or high temperatures). Remove any one and fire cannot take place. Having sailed on gas tankers, I explained that oxygen does not have to be present. Everyone in the room tried to argue against this, but after explaining the chemical process behind the fire and that chlorine or fluorine may support combustion, they all kept quiet.
Salvation may be considered as a form of triangle, similar to the fire triangle. In the salvation triangle the three constituents are:
ai???For Yahuah so loved the world, that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.ai??? (John 3:16). ai???We love Him because He first loved us.ai??? (1 John 4:19). The first constituent is the love of Yahua for Mankind. He is the instigator of salvation. From the very foundation of all Creation, Yahuah `Elohiym knew that all Mankind would sin, and that would cause an eternal rift between Him and Mankind. This separation could not be removed by anything Man could do, therefore He had to provide a way back for Man. This is through His Son, Messiah Yahshua. This is a once for all sacrifice; once carried out is totally sufficient for all Mankind for all time, no matter how heinous or how frequent the sin. Yahuah has given His Son and cannot withdraw the accepted sacrifice of His Son. Nevertheless, the offer has a time limit for each and every individual. This is either up to the personai??i??s final breath or to the time when Messiah returns for His people.
ai???So faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of Yahuah.ai??? (Rom. 10:17). ai???delivering you from the people, and from the Gentiles, to whom I send you, to open their eyes, that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of haSatan to Yahuah, that they may receive remission of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in me.ai??? (Acts 26:17, 18). The second constituent is the requirement for a person to have someone preach the Good News of salvation and someone to pray for them. When my wife and I lived in Canada, we started going to large Pentacostal Church, Christian Life Assembly. After a few weeks, we started going to New Life classes. The leader of this seven week course was a lady named Gwen Schmunk. I have no doubt that along with her explaining the Good News in seven simple lessons, she was praying for us and the others in her class. In these classes we were convicted of our sin, our utter desolation and need of a Saviour. This Saviour was Messiah Yahshua and that we accepted the offer of salvation through Him. My wife and I are first generation Believers, so that it could not have been any family or friends.
Even if you have Believing friends or family, we at ATC would be privileged to pray for you. Please contact us at email@example.com.
ai???Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out, so that there may come times of refreshing from the presence of Yahuah.ai??? (Acts 3:19). ai???and said, ai???Most assuredly I tell you, unless you turn and become as little children, you will in no way enter the Kingdom of Heaven.ai??i??ai??? (Matt. 18:3). The third constituent is that a person must acknowledge their sin, its eternal consequences and the absolute helplessness to do anything about it. That is why the Saviour, Messiah Yahshua, suffered and died for you. Once this has happened then ask Yahuah for forgiveness through His Son. If you are truly sorry, Father Yahuah is faithful to forgive.
Out of the three constituents, this third part is the most difficult. Yahuah has done everything possible, through His Son, for your salvation. There is always someone, somewhere ready to preach and pray for you. The difficulty arises on your part. Are you ready to acknowledge your sins and your need of a Saviour? Are you ready to ask Yahuah to forgive you? Are you ready to know the peace of eternal salvation?
Then what are you waiting for? Your time is rapidly running out.
If you want to acceptAi??Fatherai??i??s offer of salvation through Messiah Yahshua, you need to ask Him in prayer along these lines. Use your own words but they must be genuine asAi??FatherAi??knows our very hearts and nothing is hidden from Him.
ai???Father, I am a sinner who needs forgiveness through your Son, Messiah Yahshua. Please forgive me of all my past sins as I accept that, Messiah Yahshua my Saviour, has taken upon Himself my punishment. By your Spirit, help me to live a life worthy of His sacrifice. Thank you,Ai??Father, for making this way back to you.ai???Ai??
If you have honestly said such a prayer as these, and truely renounced the sin in your life and accepted Fatherai??i??s salvation through Messiah Yahshua, then please drop us an e-mail at ATC to let us know. This not only builds up our faith, it offers an opportunity to prayfully support you.
Our Saviour welcomes all His Family to join in this memorial. If you have accepted Messiah Yahshua as your Master and Saviour please take the next few moments to seek Father and to ensure that all is right between Him and you and between you and your Brothers and Sisters. If not, please put this right before continuing.
If you have not yet accepted Him into your life, then we encourage you to seek Him while it is still possible, as time is running out. When He returns or if you pass away then it will be too late. Please do not partake of the bread and wine as in doing so, it gives thanks for the broken body (bread) and shed blood (wine) for and a witness of salvation.
On the night of the Masterai??i??s betrayal, He took the bread, blessed it and broke it saying ai???This is my Body broken for you; take and eat it as a memorial to Me.ai??i??
Bless the bread saying: Blessed are you, O Yahuah our `Elohiym, King of the universe, who brings forth bread from the earth.
Break and eat the bread (sharing it if within a group setting):
After the meal He took the Cup of Blessing, blessed it saying ai???This is my Blood poured out for you for the remission of sins; take and drink it as a memorial to me.ai??i??
Bless the wine saying: Blessed are you, O Yahuah our `Elohiym, King of the universe, who creates the fruit of the vine.
Drink the wine (sharing it if within a group setting):
Thanksgiving prayer: Blessed are you, O Yahuah our `Elohiym, King of the universe, who gives us, in Yahshua, all that we will ever need. In your lovingkindness and mercy, you rebuild broken lives. You bless us, in Yahshua, with a perfect blessing. Ameyn.
Father willing, we will gather again next Shabbat.
