What does Shabbat Shalom mean?

 

Shabbat shalom, is a Hebrew greeting people say to each other on the true Sabbath day of rest and worship, which begins on Friday at sundown and ends on Saturday at sundown.

Remember the Sabbath day [Saturday, not Sunday] by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.” – Exodus 20:8-11, The Ten Commandments.

We pray that the shalom (i.e peace, wholeness, and rest) of the Lord will be with you. Traditionally, at the end of the Sabbath, people say “Shavua Tov”, which means, “have a good week.”

The Aaronic Blessing

The Aaronic Blessing

Click on the link below to watch the video page, “The Aaronic Blessing”. This priestly blessing is beloved of both Jews and Christians. It gives us comfort and reassurance that Yahovah God takes pleasure in our worship, with the result that the LORD will be gracious to us and grant us shalom (peace and the provision of all things necessary for our well-being). Shalom is a gift from Jesus the Messiah, the Prince of Peace (Sar Shalom).

From Pastor Luis – 4-30-11

4/30/2011

Shabbat Shalom!*

“This is the day that the LORD has made; I will rejoice and be glad in it!” – Psalm 118:24

I hope everyone is enjoying a restful Sabbath day and spending quality time with Jesus in Bible study, prayer, communion and fellowship with others in the Body of Messiah.

I just returned from traveling for a few days and feel refreshed from a good nights rest for a change (since I don’t sleep too well when I away from my own bed). Be it ever so humble, there is no place like your own home, as they say.

Please look forward to some new teachings I will be posting on the significance of “The Power of Pentecost” as part of my book, “The Seven Biblical Feasts.” In the meantime, you can prepare for my upcoming Bible studies on the Feast of Pentecost by reading Acts chapters 1 and 2, as well as Leviticus 23:15-22.

From Pastor Luis YosefusPlease continue to pray for us and ask Jesus to give us grace, strength and anointing, so that we can be faithful in teaching and proclaiming His message of truth, maturity, balance and discipleship to the Body of Christ. And as you pray, please also ask our Heavenly Father if He would have you join with us at Real Jesus Ministries through your financial giving. Whether you can help support Real Jesus Ministries with a one-time gift, or you are feeling led to become one of Real Jesus Ministries’ treasured monthly partners, donations of any size will truly help us bear the financial needs of our ministry together.

You may send your donation securely here. If you would prefer to mail your donation, Real Jesus Ministries’ mailing address is at the bottom of this message.

Thank you so much for considering my request. I am genuinely grateful for your prayers, love and support.

May the LORD richly bless you and keep you during this Sabbath day and always.

Sincerely in Messiah,

Pastor Luis Yosefus

Shalom Blessings

shalom“You will keep him in perfect, constant peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts himself to You, and confidently leans on You.” – Isaiah 26:3 (JCV)

For thousands of years, Jewish people have used the Hebrew word “shalom” when greeting someone, such as we use the word “hello.” Not only is shalom a greeting, but it is also a way of wishing the other person the many blessings of shalom which include: peace, health, prosperity, happiness, well-being, and so on.

In the above verse, Isaiah’s thought is, if we keep our minds on God,  confidently lean on Him, and include Him in the seat of all our plans – firmly founding ourselves in His will for our lives, then we will enjoy His shalom in all its implications.

Is your confidence firmly founded in God? Are you trusting Him for every area of your life – peace, happiness, provision, protection, career, relationships, and health? If so, then you are experiencing the blessings of His shalom.

We should commit everything to God in prayer and be just as confident that things are going to work out – when they look out of control, as when everything looks fine.

The opposite is also true. Even when things look peaceful and calm, that is not always an indication of security. When things are going well we have a tendency to trust more in ourselves because we don’t have to rely as much on God. And that often leads us to make mistakes. But isn’t it typical how we go running back to God when we are in a jam? Our faith must be grounded in Him – in the good times, as well as the difficult times. Our security comes from God. It is not at all dependent on what is going on around us. Whether it is the economy, our finances, our children, our marriages – we must trust God with all of it.

The LORD has promised to keep us in perfect, constant peace (shalom) if we confidently trust in Him.

–         Luis Josephus

PRAYER:

Dear Heavenly Father; I thank You for your love and mercy. Help me to always trust in You for every area of my life. Bless me with your shalom – peace, happiness, health, provision, and protection. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
