“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 LETTER – Dalet 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 ד : for 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!
