New Look

Watch out for our New Look

Thursday, June 25, 2009

We hear from Acts 4:32 about sharing in all things.

"Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul; neither did anyone say that any of the things he possessed was his own, but they had all things in common."

What is the first thing that come to your mind about the word 'possessed' ?

Is it materials things such as money, houses, car, etc.. ?

Do you know possession can also refer to kitchen items such as like soya sauce, vineagr, rice or even ice-cream.

How you know you pass the test of sharing ?
Note that picture above is purely fictional and for illustration purposes only.
Step 1 :Order 3 sets of 'Mix n Match' ice cream.Make it as gross as possible.
Step 2 :Get at least 3 persons to taste the ice cream.

Step 3 : Clean the spoon with your tongue.

Step 4 : Stir the spoon into another bowl of ice cream.

Step 5 : See if anyone refused to eat.

Below shows a negative example.

No one can eat my ice cream. Muhahaha...

Stealing ice cream.. Yummy

Below shows a positive example. Eating together

Another example of sharing just a cone

This is my precious..

Did you manage to pass this test ?

By the way, forgot to include one more step, ie. say grace for the ice cream first before tasting. Hee..

The meaning of Shalom

The meaning of the word "Shalom"

By David Silver

The Hebrew word SHALOM is understood around the world to mean peace. But peace is only one small part of the meaning of the word SHALOM.

Here in Israel , even though we don't have much in the way of peace,

we use the word SHALOM on a daily basis. We use it to greet people with, and we use it to bid farewell to people. However, SHALOM means much more than peace, hello or goodbye.

Strong's Concordance 7965 - Hebrew Shalom ..... A word study in the New King James version for SHALOM says: Completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, the absence of agitation or> discord.

Shalom comes from the root verb Shalom meaning to be complete, perfect and full. In modern Hebrew the obviously related word Shelem means to pay for, and Shulam means to be fully paid.

Sar SHALOM (Prince of Peace) is one of the descriptive names the Bible uses to indicate the ministry and personality of the Messiah: Isaiah 9:6 - The Son of God is completely perfect in all things

So in essence, when you speak out the word SHALOM - you are not only proclaiming peace, but all the above meanings of the word over that person - that's a mighty blessing!!!

Remember what the word of God says - "there is life or death in the power of the tongue".

We recently heard someone on a Christian TV program say: "No wonder the Jewish people are so blessed, because every time they say Shalom to one another, they are also allowing the full meaning (see above) of SHALOM to be pronounced over them.

He humorously proceeded to say that this greeting word would be much more beneficial to the American people if they greeted each other with SHALOM instead of their usual "Hi" or "Howdy" greeting. As Josie and I adapted to life in Israel , we adapted to the SHALOM habit over the "Hi" habit....As Messianic Jews, we are called to bless you and we take that very seriously, by praying for you and by greeting you with SHALOM.

Therefore, from now on, when we or someone says SHALOM to you, you should receive it as a tremendous blessing. And bless them back with a hearty SHALOM!"

Numbers 6:24-26: The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you.

The Lord lift up His face upon you and give you SHALOM.

In the name of SAR SHALOM - the Prince of Peace.
