GOD’S RESTING PLACE – MIRIAM

“The Tabernacle Jehovah Rafah” by Norbert McNulty – https://www.lordsart.com/ttajerabynom.html

Recall that Moses and Aaron’s sister Miriam was married to the righteous Caleb. Also, recall that one of Miriam’s names is Ephrath, because Israel became fruitful through her (I Chron. 2:19). The first fruit or firstborn of Ephrathah – Miriam and Caleb – was Hur (I Chron. 2:50). It was this Hur that assisted Aaron in holding up Moses hands to ensure the victory over Amalek (Exo. 17:12).

I first happened upon Miriam being married to Caleb while I was studying Psalms 132. Notice how we hear about God’s resting place in Ephrath: “If I allow sleep to my eyes, slumber to my eyelids; before I find a place for HASHEM [YHVH], resting place for the Strong One of Jacob. Behold! We heard about it in Ephrath, we found it in the forested field. … For HASHEM has chosen Zion; He has desired it, for His habitation. This is His resting place forever and ever, here I will dwell, for I have desired it” (Psalms 132:4-6,13-14 Tanach).

The Ephrasites are a very distinguished family in the Tribe of Judah who have descended from Ephraph, which is another name for Miriam (Sotah 11a). How interesting is that! A family of Judah’s identity is connected to Miriam, not her incredibly brave and righteous husband Caleb. There must be something to this, especially since Micah 6:4 mentions that Miriam was a leader of God’s people along with Moses and Aaron.

When I meditated upon the mysterious message in the phrase “Behold! We heard about it in Ephrath, we found it in the forested field” (Psalms 132:6), I received three gems.

The first gem is Miriam was the great-grandmother of Bezalel who was the chief architect of God’s Dwelling Place in the Wilderness – The Tabernacle. Bezalel personified his name, which means “in the very shadow of God” in Hebrew. The great wisdom that Bezalel possessed was said to be due to his ancestor Miriam (Exodus Rabbah xlviii.6).

Bezalel possessed such great wisdom that it was said that he could combine the Hebrew Living Letters with which heaven and earth were created. In Exodus 31, “HASHEM spoke to Moses, saying: ‘See I have called by the name Bezalel son of Uri, son of Hur, of the Tribe of Judah. I have filled him with a Godly spirit, with wisdom, insight, and knowledge, and with every craft; to weave designs, to work with gold, silver and copper; stone-cutting for setting and wood-carving – to perform every craft’” (Exodus 31:1-5). Wisdom, understanding, and knowledge were the implements that God used to create the world: “HASHEM founded the earth with wisdom; He established the heavens with understanding; through His knowledge, the depths were cleaved, and the heavens dripped dew” (Proverbs 3:19-20 Tanach). By virtue of God’s profound wisdom poured in and through Bezalel, he successfully erected a fit abiding-place for God in spacetime on earth while the Most High God still remained exalted above and in time and space (Ex. R xxxiv.1; Num. R. xii.3).

The second gem is that we hear about God’s Resting Place in Ephrath, because both Bezalel and King David were in Miriam… in her very DNA. King David followed in Bezalel’s footsteps in being an architect for God’s Dwelling Place, by establishing the Tabernacle of David as well as providing the plans and materials for building Solomon’s Temple. Miriam was both Bezalel and King David’s ancestor; thus, “Behold! We heard about it in Ephrath, we found it in the forested field” (Psalms 132:6). The sound of Zion – God’s Resting Place forever – was, and still is, contained with Miriam and Caleb’s DNA where the very materials for rest (i.e., the for-rested field) reside.

The Hebrew Sages speaks of Miriam having illustrious descendants, which is connected to God’s Dwelling Place as her reward for not obeying Pharaoh (Exo. 1:21). Miriam had the chutzpah to tell Pharaoh that he would be punished by God for his cruelty to Israel, and almost lost her life as a consequence.

The third gem focuses on the hearing part: “Behold! We heard about it in Ephrath, we found it in the forested field” (Psalms 132:6). Please recall that the watch word for Israel is the Shema, which can be broken down into three parts: hearing, understanding, and doing. Hearing about God’s resting place in Ephrath is key to establishing God’s dwelling place in you and I. It is actually the first step; therefore, follow Miriam’s and Caleb’s example and “Hear, O Israel: the LORD is our God, the LORD is One. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength” (Deuteronomy 6:4-5).

DEATH BLOW TO IDOLARY OF CHRISTMAS

“I am going to strike a death blow to the idolatry of Christmas.”

This is the one-liner that Father God told me when I awoke on August 31, 2020, as I was seeing a Mega-quake hit the West Coast of America. This word would have been striking all by itself, but it followed a visitation from Messiah Yeshua on August 18, 2020 who also spoke of the Megaquake hitting the West Coast of America, which I was led to release the same day. Please refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2020/08/18/get-ready-to-rumble-soar/.

Then, two days later I had a visitation from Abba Father on August 20, 2020, which also featured an awe-inspiring Mega-Quake on the West Coast of America. I was led by the perfect will of the Father to hold onto His word until the first day of Hanukkah. Refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2020/12/10/day-of-consecration-on-the-feast-of-dedication/.

Please do not take any of these words lightly. You will not want anything to do with the idolatry of Christmas (any connection whatsoever) that is getting struck with a death blow. This is soon to be a matter of life and death for everyone. May you and yours choose life by doing what Yeshua did – Hanukkah (John 10:22-23). May you stay safe in the secret place of the Most High.

Prayerfully in Him,

Robin Main

HOLINESS ON MOUNT ZION

There is holiness on Mount Zion. “But UPON MOUNT ZION shall be deliverance, and THERE SHALL BE HOLINESS; and the house of Jacob shall possess those who possessed them” (Obadiah 1:17 Lamsa’s Aramaic).

Did you know that mankind has been created in God’s own image in true righteousness and holiness? “That you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was CREATED ACCORDING TO GOD, IN TRUE RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HOLINESS” (Ephesians 4:22-24 NKJV).

One of the ways we return to this holy and righteous pristine, primeval state is through God disciplining us as His sons. God chastens His sons, so through holiness we can see the Lord and also become partakers of His holiness, yielding the peaceable fruit of righteousness.

If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that WE MAY BE PARTAKERS OF HIS HOLINESS. Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. … PURSUE peace with all people, and HOLINESS, WITHOUT WHICH NO ONE WILL SEE THE LORD: … But you have come to MOUNT ZION and to the city of the Living God, the heavenly Jerusalem…” (Hebrews 12:7-11,14,22 NKJV)

Always remember that God disciplines those He loves, and His holiness in us is perfected in the reverential fear of the Lord. “Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, PERFECTING HOLINESS IN THE FEAR OF GOD” (II Corinthians 7:1 NKJV).

We will be especially focused on Mount Zion and the Bride of Christ (Messiah) during the upcoming “White Wedding: Online Interactive Conference,” which starts tonight – Monday, November 30, 2020. Registration includes LIVE classes via Zoom, the recordings of these classes, and is open to whosoever wills.

ABUNDANT BLESSINGS OF SERENE FAITH

The LORD gives restful sleep to His beloved ones who trust Him and whose primary goal is spiritual growth.

Trusting Him implicitly – without doubt or without reserve – keeps one’s faith firm despite enormous dangers. This is where the tranquility of the peace that passes understanding lives.

Keeping spiritual growth a primary goal enables one to squeeze the most out of every circumstance. When we turn to Him in the small and big things, we can ask the LORD: What can I learn from this? How can I become more like You? I have found this type of humble, teachable heart is simply irresistible to the King of Kings – Messiah Yeshua.

Besides hitting this high mark in Christ and living a tranquil life, trust and teachability also enables a person to get their physical needs met because one has the correct focus: “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after these things the Gentiles [pre-believers] seek. For you Heavenly Father know that you need all these things. But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:31-33 NKJV Addition mine).

To a person focused on the pressures of life, it drives them to overtax their energies… to work day and night without rest. Anxiety strips life of all peace, pleasure, and joy. Yet all one’s frantic activity is in vain, for God provides for those whom He loves, even while they sleep peacefully. “It is vain for you who rise early, who sit up late, who eat the bread of sorrows; for indeed, He gives His beloved ones restful sleep (Psalms 127:2 Tanach).

When anyone puts all his faith in God, they receive divine favor. When serene faith takes the place of fear, doubt and anxiety, the blessings of God are granted in abundance, for this is the heart that He looks to. “Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6 NKJV).

Therefore, “rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:4-6 NKJV).

Give em heaven!!!

THE BRIDE STANDS ON MOUNT ZION

Mount Zion is the lot of the righteous. Scripture tells us that those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion. These are the ones who are immovable, because they abide in Him. “Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever.  As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds His people from this time forth and forever.For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous, lest the righteous teach out their hands to iniquity” (Psalms 125:1-3 NKJV).

We need to understand that Mount Zion is the lot (land) of the righteous and the Bride of the Messiah is clothed with the righteous deeds of the saints as well as the firstfruits of His Bride – the 144000 – stand on Mount Zion with the Lamb of God:

“Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. Then he said to me, ‘Write: “Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!” ’ And he said to me, ‘These are the true sayings of God’” (Revelation 19:7-9 NKJV).

“Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads … These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb” (Revelation 14:1,4 NKJV).

We will be especially focused on Mount Zion and the Bride of Christ (Messiah) during the upcoming “White Wedding: Online Interactive Conference,” which starts this coming Monday, November 30, 2020. Registration includes LIVE classes via Zoom, the recordings of these classes, and is open to whosoever wills.

ESSENTIAL ESSENCE OF THANKSGIVING

Thanksgiving is one of the premium building blocks of the House of Pure-Worshipers who reside on Mount Zion.

Never forget that Mount Zion is situated in Judah’s land – Judah’s portion – which God loves: “[He] chose the Tribe of Judah, Mount Zion which He loved” (Psalms 78:68 NKJV). The name Judah means “to praise.” One of the essential essences of praise is thanksgiving. Perhaps, that is one of the reasons that Mount Zion is called the joy of the whole earth (Psalms 48:2).

Another name for the House of Pure-Worshipers is the Tabernacle of David, which consists of hearts that are after God’s own heart. We are told in Psalms 125:1 that those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion. They are immovable, because they abide continually in Him. Psalms 74:2 agrees whole-heartedly by painting a picture of Mount Zion where the LORD dwells with His redeemed congregation. The Psalmist sings “Remember Your congregation, which You have purchased of old, The tribe of Your inheritance, which You have redeemed – This is Mount Zion where You have dwelt” (Psalms 74:2 NKJV).

Praise is first and foremost about glorifying God. Praise is a form of worship that expresses gratitude, honor and worthiness. It celebrates His divine goodness, and so does thanksgiving.

I love King David! He was so passionate, and he screwed up so much that his example in Scripture gives me incredible hope where I can give thanks to God in the most difficult circumstances. When King David proclaimed: “You have relieved me in my distress” (Psalms 4:2), his heart was full of deep heartfelt gratitude. David was basically thanking God for taking his constricted, distressful situations and creating expansive, joyful outcomes. For instance, from his disastrous affair with Bathsheba came King David’s successor – Solomon – after years of Him seeking God with a contrite heart. Out of the plague that followed David’s census came the purchase of the threshing floor of Aravnah, which became the site of God’s Temple after David rectified the situation (See II Samuel 24).

I pray that the essential essence of thanksgiving expands for you and yours. Let us all join King David and company in the Tabernacle of David situated on Mount Zion to sing portions of David’s Song of Thanksgiving:

OH, GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD! CALL UPON HIS NAME; MAKE KNOWN HIS DEEDS AMONG THE PEOPLE! Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him; Talk of all His wondrous works! GLORY IN HIS HOLY NAME; Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord! Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face evermore! Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth, … He is the Lord our God; His judgments are in all the earth. Remember His covenant forever, The word which He commanded, for a thousand generations, …Sing to the Lord, all the earth; Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day. DECLARE HIS GLORY AMONG THE NATIONS, HIS WONDERS AMONG ALL PEOPLES. FOR THE LORD IS GREAT AND GREATLY TO BE PRAISED; He is also to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the peoples are idols, But the Lord made the heavens. HONOR AND MAJESTY ARE BEFORE HIM; Strength and gladness are in His place. Give to the Lord, O families of the peoples, Give to the Lord glory and strength. GIVE TO THE LORD THE GLORY DUE HIS NAME; Bring an offering, and come before Him. OH, WORSHIP THE LORD IN THE BEAUTY OF HOLINESS! Tremble before Him, all the earth. The world also is firmly established, It shall not be moved. Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; And let them say among the nations, “The Lord reigns.” Let the sea roar, and all its fullness; Let the field rejoice, and all that is in it. Then the trees of the woods shall rejoice before the Lord, For He is coming to judge the earth. OH, GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD, FOR HE IS GOOD! FOR HIS MERCY ENDURES FOREVER. And say, “Save us, O God of our salvation; Gather us together, and deliver us from the Gentiles, TO GIVE THANKS TO YOUR HOLY NAME, TO TRIUMPH IN YOUR PRAISE.” Blessed be the Lord God of Israel From everlasting to everlasting! And all the people said, ‘Amen!’ and praised the Lord” (I Chronicles 16:8-13,14-15,23-36 NKJV).

THE TABERNACLE OF DAVID TRANSCENDS LIMITATIONS

The Lord’s righteous judgments in His own House precedes Him raising up the Tabernacle of David that has fallen down and is in ruins: “All the sinners of My people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us. In that day will I raise up the Tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old: That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by My Name, saith the LORD that doeth this” (Amos 9:10-12 KJV).

The LORD Himself will raise up the Tabernacle of David, as in the days of King David. Unlike the Wilderness Tabernacle of Moses, David’s Tabernacle has no description. Behold, a mystery of the Tabernacle of David. It stands forever; and thus, transcends both time and space.

One of the things that makes this simple open tent so special is that it housed the Ark of His Presence in Zion while Moses’ Tabernacle still operated in Gibeon. “So Solomon and all the congregation with him, went to the high place that was at Gibeon; for there was the tabernacle of the congregation of God, which Moses the servant of the LORD had made in the wilderness. But the Ark of God had David brought up from Kiriath-jearim to the place which David had prepared for it: for he had pitched a tent for it at Jerusalem” (II Chronicles 1:3-4).

Gibeon is a little town only six miles northwest of Jerusalem. Basically, Gibeon is close to Jerusalem, but not quite there… only six miles away… six being the number of man.

So… at the time of King David, the Wilderness Tabernacle and all its outer court sacrifices were in operation in Gibeon. However, the object that represented their worship was not there. The Ark of the Covenant rightly rested in the Tabernacle of David on Zion’s holy hill in Jerusalem. Thus, there was divided worship in the land, which is a picture for us in our day. Choose this day the old rigid ways of worshiping God, or the new, mysterious, creative, abandoned worship-filled ways of God.

Some of God’s people moved with the Presence of God, and some did not. Some stuck to an old form. Even though there was legitimate worship at Gibeon, the open tent on Mount Zion was the one that radiated the presence and glory of God. This is where pure-hearted worshipers transcended the limitations of their time. This is also the reason that the Ark of His Presence came to reside in the Tabernacle of David for 45 years.

Give em heaven!!!

TURN THE JUSTICE KEY OF DAVID

Turn… Turn… Turn to the Lord… Turn the Key of the House of David. “Then I will set the Key of the House of David on his shoulder, when he opens no one will shut, when he shuts no one will open” (Isaiah 22:22 NASB).

It is not a coincidence that all roads for America’s freedom goes through the city of brotherly love – Philadelphia – again. In fact, the entire world’s freedom seems to be centered on Philadelphia as well. God appears to be using “Philadelphia” as His prophetic message in this Kingdom Day. Recall that to the church of Philadelphia, the Beloved Apostle John wrote the testimony of Yeshua (Jesus) as follows: “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: He who is holy, who is true, who has the Key of David, who opens and no one will shut, and who shuts and no one opens, says this: ‘I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name. Behold, I will cause those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews [i.e. believers] and are not, but lie – I will make them come and bow down at your feet, and make them know that I have loved you. Because you have kept the word of My perseverance, I also will keep you from the hour of testing, that hour which is about to come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, so that no one will take your crown. He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the Temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches’” (Revelation 3:7-13 NASB, Addition mine).

There are many aspects to the Key of the House of David included in the incredible sovereign ability to open and close anything in alignment with the perfect will of the Heavenly Father. Kings and priest made after the Order of Melchizedek ruling in the midst of their enemies via Zion’s scepter is one of those features: “ ‘The LORD says to my Lord: sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.’ The LORD will stretch forth Your strong scepter from Zion, saying, ‘Rule in the midst of Your enemies.’  Your people will volunteer freely in the day of Your power; In holy array, from the womb of the dawn, Your youth are to You as the dew. The LORD has sworn and will not change His mind, ‘You are a priest forever according to the Order of Melchizedek” (Psalms 110:1-4 NASB).

We are told that Mount Zion is the joy of the whole earth (Psalms 43:6). One of the reasons that Mount Zion is the joy of the whole earth is that, spiritually speaking, the substance of Mount Zion are the people who have an immovable trust in the LORD, because they are abiding in Him (Psalms 125:1).

Physically speaking, Mount Zion is a small hill within the city of current day Jerusalem. Sometimes, the city of Jerusalem is called Zion. Historically speaking, King David erected a simple tent with God’s approval on Mount Zion, which was called the Tabernacle of David.

There are three Hebrew words for “tabernacle” in the Bible. The one first connected to the Tabernacle of David is the ohel. The ohel was the covering tent over the Tabernacle (mishkan) that Moses erected in the Wilderness. It pictured (pictures) the higher reality of a heavenly tabernacle over the earthly tabernacle. King David made every effort to unite the earthly tabernacle with the heavenly, and to unite the earthly Jerusalem with the heavenly Jerusalem – the city of the Living God (Hebrews 12:22). Interestingly, ohel is also used for the bridal tent in II Samuel 16:22, which remarkably coincides with the picture painted of Mount Zion in Revelation 14.

There is a priestly ohel and a kingly ohel. The priestly ohel is the place David prepared for the Ark of God when he pitched a tent upon Mount Zion in Jerusalem (II Sam. 6:17-19; 1 Chr. 15-15). King David placed specific Kohens and Levites (priests) here, as singers and musicians to minister before the Ark of God continually. This established the Davidic Worship Order on Mount Zion. The Ark was in David’s Tent; therefore, it was considered to be God’s Throne on earth.

The kingly ohel is the place of promise where someone of David’s seed will sit on Throne of David in the Tabernacle of David: “In mercy the throne will be established; and one will sit on it in truth, in the Tabernacle of David, judging and seeking justice and hastening righteousness.” (Isaiah 16:5 NKJV).

Let’s zero in on the justice and judgment key of David. When Melchizedek kings and priests seek the perfect heart of the Father and fulfill His perfect will (just like Yeshua did – John 5:19), they are using His Zion scepter to rule in the midst of their enemies. Note that Isaiah 16:5 has two prerequisites to “judging and seeking justice and hastening righteousness”: (1) mercy – the establishment of God’s Throne is in the mercy that triumphs over judgment, and (2) truth – sitting on His throne with Him in truth.

We are a people who trust that “the fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether” (Psalms 19:9 KJV). We are a Melchizedek Company foretold about in the Dead Sea Scrolls, which portrays the fully mature Head and Body of Christ, as a godlike being that has taken “his” place in the council of God. It is in the midst of these divine beings that God Himself holds judgment. Check it out!

DEAD SEAS SCROLLS and The Coming of Melchizedek (11Q13 2.4-11)

4 [the interpretation] is that it applies [to the L]ast Days and concerns the captives, just as [Isaiah said: “To proclaim the jubilee to the captives” (Isaiah 61:1) . . . . ] and 5 whose teachers have been hidden and kept secr[et], even from the inheritance of Melchizedek, f[or . . . ] and they are the inherit[ance of Melchize]dek, who 6 will return them to what is rightfully theirs. He will proclaim to them the jubilee, thereby releasing th[em from the debt of a]ll their sin. This word [will thus co]me 7 in the first week of the jubilee period that follows ni[ne j]ubilee periods, 8 when he shall atone for all the Sons of [Light] and the peopl[e who are pre]destined to Mel[chi]zedek. [ . . . ] upo[n the]m [ . . . ] For 9 this is the time decreed for “the year of Melchiz[edek]’s favor” (Isa. 61:2, modified) and for [his] hos[ts, together] with the  holy ones of God, for a kingdom of judgment, just as it is written 10 concerning him in the Songs of David. “A godlike being has taken his place in the coun[cil of God;] in the midst of the divine beings He holds judgment (Ps. 82:1). Scripture also s[ays] about him, “Over[it] 11 take your seat in the highest heaven; a divine being will judge the peoples” (Ps. 7:7-8).

We worship the One who sits upon The Throne and unto The Lamb! We praise His justice… His judgment… His righteousness!

Give em heaven!!!

MYSTICAL GUESTS DURING SUKKOT

There is a custom in Hebrew households to invite the “ushpizin” (mystical guests from the Great Cloud of Witnesses) during the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot). There are traditionally seven of these mystical guests – Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Aaron and David – where a different guest (i.e., ushpiz: אוּשְׁפִּיז) enters the sukkah each night of Sukkot. The Hebrews welcome each guest by offering them a place at their table. This is similar to the tradition of putting a place at the Passover Table for Elijah.

This year our tenth School of the Firmament class was held during Tabernacles. Since we are delving into the Ascension Songs of David, we invited King David to our banqueting table in our spiritual sukkah. We were so touched with David sharing his heart with us through some psalms that he wrote. Deep called to deep, as our supernal friend David was so vulnerable with us. Words don’t quite explain it. It’s like we sat down with a new-found friend that we felt we knew all our lives.

I would highly recommend that you and yours invite these immortal heroes of the faith to your table during The Feast too.

Give em heaven!!!
