Day 24 of 40 Day Fast from Negative Thinking


 

Day 24

You should reject the negative thought that says, “I Have Too Many Problems!”

Today is the 24th Day of counting the Omer [referring to the Barley Harvest], as a “Countdown to Shavuot [Pentecost]”.  The 49-day “Counting of the Omer” from the Day of Firstfruits retraces our ancestors’ seven-week spiritual journey from the Exodus to Sinai.

TWENTY-FOUR is TWENTY and FOUR in Hebrew.

TWENTY is Hebraically numbered by the:

11th HEBREW LETTERKAPH כ #11: Is used to represent the NUMBER 20 [ESRIM in Hebrew]: It is the pictographically and “CLOSED HAND” or HaShem’s Atoning Covering [Like Yom Kippur: the “Day of Atonement” or “HaShem’s Covering”]. The Hebrew Number ESRIM [20] is the plural of ESER [10]. So twenty is also a multiple of DIVINE ORDER. This was also the age that the Men of Israel enlisted into the Army.

PLUS WE ADD THE 4th HEBREW LETTERDalet ד #4: Is used to represent the NUMBER 4 [ARBA’AH for masculine, and ARBA for feminine in Hebrew]: It is the pictographically a “DOOR”, or the “entrance to a house”. DELET is the Hebrew word for DOOR, and DALET looks like a HOUSE with an OPEN DOOR. 2 Chronicles 23:3-6 speaks of the levitical priests who were commissioned to keep, or watch over the DOORS.

Together TWENTY and FOUR speak of the DIVINE ORDER over the DOORS of HIS HOUSE [TEMPLE]:

TWENTY-FOUR is Hebraically is the NUMBER for the PRIESTHOOD. This was established by KING DAVID who set the priests in orders, or courses of TWENTY-FOUR [1 Chron. 24:1-19; 28:11-13]. This is why John, the “Revelator”, and disciple of Yeshua, reveals his heavenly vision of HaShem’s TWENTY-FOUR Elders, who are “kings & priests” [Rev. 4:4,10; 5:8-10], or “royal priesthood”.

THREE STEPS TO REIGN AS KINGS & PRIESTS:

Step 1 – GUARD THE DOOR OF YOUR HEART:

a. 2 Chron. 23:3-6: Then all the assembly made a covenant with the king in the HOUSE of GOD. And he said to them, “Behold, the king’s son shall reign, as the Lord has said of the sons of David. This is what you shall do: One-third of you entering on the Sabbath, of the PRIESTS and the LEVITES, shall be keeping watch over the DOORS. One-third shall be at the king’s house; and one-third at the Gate of the Foundation. All the people shall be in the courts of the HOUSE of the LORD. But let no one come into the HOUSE of the LORD except the PRIESTS and those of the LEVITES who serve. They may go in, for they are HOLY; but all the people shall keep the WATCH of the LORD.

b. Prov. 4:23: KEEP and GUARD [“THE DOOR”] your HEART with all vigilance and above all that you GUARD, for out of it flow the springs [issues] of life.

Step 2 – FACE PROBLEMS LIKE ROYAL PRIESTS:

a. Exodus 19:4-6:‘You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself. Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a SPECIAL TREASURE to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine. And you shall be to Me a KINGDOM OF PRIESTS and a HOLY NATION.’ These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel.”

b. 1 Peter 2:9-12 But you are a chosen generation, a ROYAL PRIESTHOOD, a HOLY NATION, His own SPECIAL PEOPLE, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. Who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not OBTAINED MERCY but now have OBTAINED MERCY. Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts which war against the soul, having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation.

c. Hebrews 4:14-16 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, [Yeshua] the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a HIGH PRIEST who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come BOLDLY to the throne of grace, that we may OBTAIN MERCY and FIND GRACE to help in time of need.

Step 3 – CONSECRATE YOUR LIFE LIKE THE TEMPLE OF GOD:

a. 2 Chronicles 29:5: …..“Hear me, LEVITES! Now SANCTIFY YOURSELVES, SANCTIFY the HOUSE of the LORD God of your fathers, and carry out the rubbish from the HOLY PLACE.

b. Isaiah 57:15 For thus says the HIGH and LOFTY ONE Who inhabits eternity, whose name is HOLY: “I DWELL in the HIGH and HOLY PLACE, with him who has a contrite and humble SPIRIT, to revive the SPIRITS of the humble, and to revive the HEART of the contrite ones.

c. 1 Corinthians 6:18-20: Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the TEMPLE of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore GLORIFY GOD in your BODY and in your SPIRIT, which are God’s.

d. 2 Corinthians 6:16-18: And what agreement has the TEMPLE OF GOD with idols? For you are the “temple of the living God”. As God has said: “I will DWELL in them
and walk among them. I will be their God,
 and they shall be My people. Therefore “Come out from among them
and be SEPARATE, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean,
and I will receive you. I will be a Father to you,
and you shall be My sons and daughters,
 says the Lord Almighty.”

DECLARE!:

I GUARD THE DOOR OF MY HEART, like the DOOR to the TEMPLE OF GOD. I FACE PROBLEMS LIKE A ROYAL PRIEST, dealing with the burden of sin, and BOLDLY coming into His PRESENCE. I CONSECRATE MY LIFE LIKE THE TEMPLE SANCTIFIED by the PRIESTS of HASHEM, in Yeshua’s Name! Shalom Y’all!
