Shabbath, Prayer, Torah Portion

Shalom dear friends, connections, and followers,

This evening it is Erev Shabbes, and this is one of the prayers we say:

Blessed are You, Eternal our G-d, Sovereign of the universe.

You hallow us with Your commandments and command us to kindle the lights of Shabbat. Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech haolam, asher kid'shanu b'mitzvotav v'zivanu l'hadlik ner shel Shabbat.

From our house to yours, Gut Shabbes!

Before I close the computer to make the final preparations for our Shabbes, I feel led to say a prayer. This morning I saw on the Internet that Austria goes into total lockdown from Monday. This was announced by Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg.

The country is also going to introduce a national vaccination obligation. This obligation will come into effect on 1 February next year.

Abba You lead me in prayer. You have given me the word HAIL several times. One of the plagues of Egypt

( Exodus 9:23 ).

It is mentioned by Haggai as a divine judgment ( Haggai 2:17 ).

YOU call Abba, to return (back) to YOU. And I beg You to soften the hearts and make them listen! Abba, you have prepared us for a time like this. You gave us the Machanayim house, as a storehouse, a family house, a house of unity between us Jews, Jews and Christians, believers.

The storehouse until now is a spiritual meaning that shares the great wisdom of YOUR word.

But I know there's more to come. I pray a blessing over YOUR flock, and the fugitives, who fled from the pastures where YOUR word YOUR presence as G-d of Avraham Yitzchak and Ya'akov is no longer welcome because they turned YOU and YOUR word into a weak infusion, or say that You have replaced us as Jews for the church, which preaches what Emperor Constantine once allowed, which in short is a gospel without the Hebrew/Jewish roots. Abba, into YOUR hands I commit ourselves as YOUR flock! A set apart HOLY people! Amein.

Yeshayah 16

Orthodox Jewish Bible

16 Send ye the lamb to the Moshel-Eretz, from Sela by way of the midbar, unto Har Bat Tziyon.

2 For it shall be, that, as an oph noded (wandering bird) cast out of the ken (nest), so the Banot Moav shall be at the fords of the Arnon.

3 Give us etzah (counsel, advice); make pelilah (decision, justice); cast thy tzel as the lailah in the midst of tzahorayim; hide the fugitives; don't betray him that is a refugee.

4 Let fugitives of Moav dwell with tea; be thou a seter (shelter, hiding place) to them from before the shoded (destroyer); for the oppressor is at an end, shod (destruction) ceaseth, the aggressors are consumed out of HaAretz.

5 And in chesed shall the kisse be established; and sitting upon it in emes in the Ohel Dovid, a Shofet seeking mishpat, and hastening tzedek.

Chaggai 2:17

Orthodox Jewish Bible

17 I struck you with blight and with mildew and with hail in all the labors of your hands; yet ye made not teshuvah to Me, saith Hashem.
