Day 34 of 40 Day Fast from Negative Thinking


 

Day 34

“Opportunities are Passing me by!”

Let’s reject the negative thought that tells us, “Opportunities are Passing me by!”

Today is the 34th 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.

THIRTY is Hebraically numbered by the:

12th HEBREW LETTER –LAMED ל #12 : It is used to represent the NUMBER 30 [SH’LOSHIM in Hebrew]: It comes the root LAMAD [to study and learn]. It is pictographically a “OX GOAD” [to prod the animal along; or a teaching rod] or “SHEPHERD’S STAFF”, that speaks of the AUTHORITY to TEACH or LEAD. This is the age of the PRIESTHOOD, and RABBINICAL AUTHORITY.

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” [DELET].

TOGETHER the LAMED [letter #12 ל : for the number 30] and DALET [letter #4 דfor the number 4] speaks of the AUTHORITY of, or over a DOOR [like a KEY that opens the DOOR]. DOORS represent OPPORTUNITIES, and DIVINE ACCESS.

THREE KEYS TO OPEN DOORS:

First Key  – RECOGNIZE WHO OPENS AND SHUTS DOORS:

a. Rev. 3:7  And to the [messenger of the synagogue “Shaliach Tzibur”] of the [Messianic Congregation] in Philadelphia write: He who is holy, He who is true, He who has the KEY of DAVID [or AUTHORITY of King David, as his Descendant –“THE MESSIAH”], He who OPENS and no one SHUTS; and SHUTS and no one OPENS, says these things…

b. Isaiah 22:22-23  And the KEY of the house [KINGDOM] of DAVID I will lay on his shoulder; so he shall OPEN, and none shall SHUT; and he shall SHUT, and none shall open. And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father’s house [King David’s Royal Dynasty].

c. Eph. 2:18  For through Him [MESSIAH] we both have ACCESS by one Spirit to the Father.

Second Key  – USE THE ROYAL KEYS OF KINGDOM:

a. Mat 16:19 
And I will give you the KEYS of the KINGDOM of heaven, and whatever you bind [as a binding agreement for what is forbidden] on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose [permit] on earth will be loosed in heaven.” This a rabbinical phrase that referred to judges, kings, levitical priests, rabbis, or whoever is in AUTHORITY at that time [Deut. 16:18-20; 17:8-13], who legal restrictions or allowances in “Jewish Law”, as they applied the principles of the Torah [HaShem’s Decrees] daily situations.

b. Luke 11:52 “Woe to you lawyers [those who interpreted TORAH – scribes & Pharisees: Read Matt. 23:1,13]! For you have taken away the KEY of knowledge. You did not enter in yourselves, and those who were entering in you hindered.”

c. Matt. 13:11 He answered and said to them, “Because it has been given to you [only Yeshua’s Disciples] to KNOW [UNLOCK] the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them [the masses, of just followers] it has not been given.

Third Key  – TAKE ADVANTAGE OF DIVINE DOORS OF OPPORTUNITY WHEN THEY COME TO YOU:

a. Matt. 7:7 Keep on asking and it will be given you; keep on seeking and you will find; keep on knocking [reverently] and [the DOOR] will be opened to you. Amplified

b. Colossians 1:3 Withal PRAYING also for us, that God would open unto us a DOOR of Utterance, to speak the mystery of [Messiah], for which I am also in bonds:

c. 1 Cor. 16:9 For a great and effective DOOR has OPENED to me, and there are many adversaries.

d. Rev. 3:7, 20  And to the [messenger of the synagogue “Shaliach Tzibur”] of the [Messianic Congregation] in Philadelphia write: He who is holy, He who is true, He who has the KEY of DAVID [or AUTHORITY of King David, as his Descendant –“THE MESSIAH”], He who OPENS and no one SHUTS; and SHUTS and no one OPENS, says these things…Behold, I stand at the DOOR and KNOCK. If anyone hears My voice and opens the DOOR, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

Think It, Say It & Do It!:

I RECOGNIZE WHO OPENS AND SHUTS DOORS in my life, as I USE THE ROYAL KEYS OF KINGDOM that HASHEM HAS GIVEN ME, through “MESSIAH, SON OF DAVID”, as a KEY OF KNOWLEDGE. As I ASK, SEEK & KNOCK, I will TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ALL the DIVINE DOORS OF OPPORTUNITY that come to me, in Yeshua’s Name! Shalom Y’all!
