Day 40 of 40 Days of Teshuvah

Take your seat at Father’s Chair.

 

Yes I did see your name

And I know for sure it’s there

Come it is time for the reading

Find your seat at Father’s chair.

Well the day is here. This is truly ‘The Day of The Lord’ the holiest day of the year. Our names are not blotted out of the book of life.

 

Found in His love ready to become

Rooted and securely grounded

Only good toward us

All His grace hath abounded

 

We should not be about worry

Nor succumb to dread and fear

For our Heavenly Father

Is calling to each one, come near

 

It is story time do hear

At  Father’s bended knee

The book in His lap is opened

Come have a seat and join me

 

What you may not know

Is I saw your name it’s there

It is written in His story

The one He loves to share

 

So gather round dear children

The story is about to begin

Listen as Father tells

The story authored and read by Him

 

 

It is the story He has written

And etched into the hearts

For others to discover

Exactly, yes you have a part

 

What a fabulous story

Read over and over again

It is the redemption story

About a special pattern and plan

 

Those who came in reverence

With heads bowed down and listened

As He read aloud the names

Written in His palm each one glistened

 

Yes I did see your name

And I know for certain it is there

Come it is time for the reading

Find your seat at Father’s chair.

Teshuvah 9

 

And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, Ephesians 2:6

 

 

What have learned this year during our 40 Days of Teshuvah?

  1. That the two stone tablets are our hardened unrepentant hearts and our un-renewed minds.
  2. That we must receive a new heart from God and then renew our minds according to the words of life.
  3. That the books are closed and the decision is made forever. We who are born again realize that the decision for us is a lasting ordinance for sure. God’s Holy Convocation is eternal and unchangeable. The day and the hour no man knows.

I have been meditating recently about the Feast and Mo’edim of God our Father being rehearsals for upcoming events. The scripture tell us these Mo’ed are types and shadows and have a unique pattern. One that must be followed precisely. The LORD God told Moses to be sure and build the Tabernacle according to ‘the pattern’ which God had shown him. We as believers understand this now because we are privileged to see from the beginning. We are given front row seats to the eternal plan from the beginning. We see into what their obedience has done for us. Are we not the most blessed generation to be living? We are able to gather at Father’s knee and hear the story over and over. I have a question. Have we shared with others that their name is part of the story.

If any of you has ever sewn you know how fragile the patterns and pattern pieces are. They must be laid exact and precise on the material for a quality work. There is an exact way that the material or cloth must be cut. It is very important to have the cloth lay on a stable sturdy surface while cutting.  Do you cut on the bias? Do you cut along the fold? Does the cloth have a grain? If the cloth does have a grain they will have to match. All these questions and factors speak to me now concerning what Moses saw.  How can you keep the pattern pieces from slipping? They are pinned down over and over, as often as needed to make the garment according to the pattern.

I can see in my mind right now a Simplicity Pattern. There was a picture of the garment on the outside of the package. However if someone were given this pattern who didn’t know how to sew or what the pattern was it would be meaningless to them. Had Moses seen the finished product? Did Moses watch our Lord Jesus in heaven in the Heavenly Tabernacle?

They had to act by faith; we now receive by faith what their actions have allowed us to see as they each played their part to usher in the eternal plan of salvation by Jesus Christ.

The Day of Atonement is here. God has made His decision. The Books are now closed and what is the decision that God has made?

That salvation has come to all who believe in The Lord Jesus Christ.

Matthew tells us on that occasion Jesus took with Him Peter, James and John up to a high mountain by themselves. “He was transfigured before them; and His face shone like the sun, and His garments became as white as light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him . . . “Moses and Elijah appeared with Him talking about His coming death. Matthew then writes, “A bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold, a voice out of the cloud said, ‘This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; listen to Him!” (17:2-3, 5). Here was the Shekhina glory in the face of Jesus! The veil of His flesh could contain Him no longer. The glory of His deity burst forth.  The decisions were made. We talked about Moses face shining yesterday. Had Moses seen into the future? God’s glory had been revealed to Moses as God hid him in the cleft of the rock. And we know the Rock is Christ.

Had Moses been waiting for The Day and The Hour that was now witnessed by Peter, James, and John? Had he been here before? Is that why his face had been radiant and had to be veiled? I believe Moses very well may have seen this day from the beginning.

But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet. For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified. (Hebrews 10: 12-14)

Our prayers have been heard. May our repentance be at a new level from this time forth. May the upcoming root season allow us to cast off all dead works.  May we remember the perfect work of Christ our Savior when He said, It Is Finished! He is the High Priest of our confession. His work is The perfect atoning work.

Let us pray.

Dear Heavenly Father. Thank You for the perfect blood of Jesus Christ that has been applied on my behalf in Your heavenly sanctuary. Thank You Lord Jesus, for humbling Yourself and going to the Cross. You laid down Your life that I now have life eternal. Thank You for Your blood that has been taken behind the veil into the Holy of Holies once and for all, into the presence of God. Jesus You did open the way for us that we may come into the presence of God Almighty. You are our High Priest and Your blood has atoned for my sins and for my dead works. My conscience is cleansed by Your sinless perfect blood that I may serve The Living God.

I declare over myself, and my family, and those that You are drawing through me, that we shall serve You with our whole heart and mind.

In Jesus Name it is done, Amen.

How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? And for this cause he is the mediator of the New Testament that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. (Hebrews 9:14-15)

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you and give you Shalom.

Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
