Spoken during Week 25 of Yeshua’s Ministry
Luke 7:36 One of the Prushim asked Yeshua to dine with him, so he went into his house and reclined for dinner. 37 While Yeshua dined in the Parush’s house, a woman from the city, a sinner, brought an alabaster box of ointment 38 and stooped at his feet behind him, weeping, and began to wash his feet with her tears, and then wiped them with the hair of her head. She then kissed his feet and anointed them with the ointment. 39 When the Parush who had invited him saw it, he thought to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would have known who this woman is, and what kind of woman it is that touches him. She is obviously a sinner.” 40Yeshua said to him, “Shimon, I have something to say to you.” He replied, “Master, say on.”
41 There was a certain creditor who had two debtors. The one owed five hundred shekels, and the other fifty. 42 When they had nothing to pay, he completely forgave them both. Tell me, which of them will love him most?” 43 Shimon answered, “I suppose that he to whom he forgave most.” Yeshua said to him, “You have rightly judged.” 44Then he turned to the woman, and said to Shimon, “See this woman? I entered into your house, and you gave me no water for my feet, but she has washed my feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head. 45You gave me no kiss, but this woman, since the time I came in, has not ceased to kiss my feet. 46 You did not anoint my head with oil, but this woman has anointed my feet with ointment. 47 Therefore, I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, that is why she loves much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves “little.” 48 Yeshua said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” 49 Those who reclined at dinner with him began to grumble within themselves, “Who does he think he is! He also forgives sins?” 50Then he said to the woman, “Your faith has made you whole! Go in peace.”
Let us look toward the feast, when the trumpets blast before we sit down to eat. Many are filled with tears and sorrow, others are filled with pride towards tomorrow. Let those that are unworthy, those that feel there is no hope for them, rise up at the table and proclaim how much they love him. Let the ones sitting , with prideful nature within, know that they are the beast that they must willing kill so that we may all join hands and kneel before Him.
To him who has been given forgiveness time and time again, does not understand the essence of grace for it is the strength that keeps us from sin. But what is sin, in the last dark days? It is missing the mark, the arrow that lands far away. For there those with the mark and those that love Torah. This is what will separate all those that have come before us.
So look to the parables with eyes that can now see. Let us kneel down with tears, wash and kiss His feet. Know in your heart that grace isn’t free. The righteous and loving live to love living YeHoVah’s law for they see, its what makes a man Holy as he walks with the Father, listens and performs His will for there is none other that knows the end from the beginning, there is only Him. He came teaching mysteries, Yea, Jesus is My Friend, My Master, My Greatest Joy found within.
Call out to Him, Sing a Song for Him, Ask of Him for those you Love this is what the Sabbath Day, a time of rejoicing is Dear Friend. Keep the Sabbath Day as a day of rest, a day anointing with Him.
