Tonight at Sundown is a very important day in Judaism & Jewish Roots of Christianity. It is
Tisha B’Av (Hebrew: תשעה באב or ט׳ באב, “the Ninth of Av,”) is an annual fast day in Judaism, named for the ninth day (Tisha) of the month of Av in the Hebrew calendar. The fast commemorates the destruction of both the First Temple and Second Temple in Jerusalem, which occurred about 655 years apart, but on the same Hebrew calendar date. Tisha B’Av is never observed on Shabbat. If the 9th of Av falls on a Saturday, the fast is postponed until the 10th of Av. Tish’a B’Av begins at sundown on Sat, 10 August 2019.
The month of Av is also the month when the Ten spies gave a negative report and all of Israel walked in disbelief ( Deuteronomy 1). God equates unbelief to disobedience. Hebrew sages believe that this brought a curse on Israel because on the 9th day of Av historically has been a day when Jews have been murdered, exiled, scattered, and great sorrow through out history. But as we look to the Grace, Mercy, and Redemption, God is working to always restore. One sign of the last days prophecies is the Jewish people returning to the promise land.
You don’t have to fast starting tonight at Sundown through tomorrow evening at sundown, but if you choose to do so, like Debbie and I do pso with a heart of rejoicing.
1. Rejoice that Yeshua death and resurrection has raised up the Temple not made with human hands. Satan has come to destroy the Temple, that is you and me. But praise be to God Yeshua’s has overcome
2. The curse of disobedience and unbelief is broken by the Blood of Yeshua.
3. If the enemy is trying to intimidate you with accusations, cursing, and unbelief read the story of David in 2 Samuel 16:11. David is running from his Son Absolom when a man from the house of Saul begins to curse him and throw rocks at him. Abishai one of David’s mighty men ask David if he can go and cut his head off. Notice David’s response in verse 12, “It may be that the Lord will look on my affliction, and that the Lord will repay me with good for his cursing this day.”
So Rejoice beacause God is setting you up for good to be ahead of you.
4. Finally, when your going through trouble and trial, Rejoice your getting an Upgrade!
