_________prayers and blessings_______________

The (complete) Shema (Sh'ma)
1. Deuteronomy 6:(1-)4-9 (Shema): The core Hebrew prayer. Special emphasis is given to the first six Hebrew words of this passage (Shema Yisrael, Adonai eloheinu, Adonai echad) and a six-word response is said in an undertone (barukh shem kevod malkhuto le'olam va'ed). After a pause, Deuteronomy 6:5-9 is then recited, which stresses the commandment to love the Lord your God with all of your heart, soul, and might.

2. Deuteronomy 11:13-21 (Vehayah): This moving passage stresses the blessings that come through obedience to Adonai and the consequences that come through disobedience.

3. Numbers 15:37-41 (Vaiyomer): This passage concerns the use of a the Tallit, a rectangular prayer shawl with four fringes (called tsitsit). One tsitsit is attached to each corner of the tallit. The reason for wearing the tsitsit is to remind oneself to observe all of the commandments of the Lord.

The Amidah / HaTefillah (standing prayer/ also mentioned by Yeshua-Mk.11:25)

Teshuva -(Return) Repentance in Judaism (according to rabbinic traditions and interpretations of The WORD)
- regretting/acknowledging the sin;
- forsaking the sin;
- worrying about the future consequences of the sin;
- humility;
- acting in a way opposite to that of the sin (for example, for the sin of lying, one should speak the truth);
- understanding the magnitude of the sin;
- refraining from lesser sins for the purpose of safeguarding oneself against committing greater sins;
- confessing the sin (spacific transgression/ Christianity accepts more general repentace as well as spacific);
- praying for atonement;
- correcting the sin however possible (for example, if one stole an object, the stolen item must be returned or if one slanders another, the slanderer must ask the injured party for forgiveness);
- pursuing works of chesed and truth;
- remembering the sin for the rest of one's life (should serve as reminder not to commit such a transgression);
- refraining from committing the same sin if the opportunity presents itself again;
- stressing to others the importance of repentace.

This is stressed during the Days of Awe (the 10 days between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur).
Later Jewish tradition extended this time of repentance that all might come to the place of salvation to a 40 day span. While these are standards of repentace in rabinical Judaism there is much value of each of these in my view of scripture.

Water baptisim in Judaism- Mikveh
To be born of waters:
1) To be washed clean (symbolic of recieving *Atonement)
2)* To be physically born /of woman (water sack)/ Into the earth (to enter the firmament, flesh)
3) Professing dedication to The *Faith, relationship with Hashem  (Symbolic of dying of self and wanting to be cleansed ,holy, set apart from the filth of the world)
*= required

*1There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:
*2The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
*3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
*4Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
*5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
-(1/ born of water 2/ born of the spirit)
*6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
-(1/ born of flesh 2/ born of spirit/ Gen.2:7/ 1 Cor.15)
*7Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
-(again-anōthen Greek #509 from above)
*8The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
-(Spirit like unto the wind /Heb.Neshama, Ruach, Greek pneuma/ you cants see the wind but you can see its effects/ cant see the spirit but can observe its fruits/ SPIRITUAL examples Love, hate, Faith, intelect, character, ideologies, belief.... PRICELESS verse yet the focuss on this post is being born of Water.)
*9Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?
*10Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?
*11Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness.
*12If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
-(heavenly- Spiritual)
*13And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

Matt.10: 32Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven
Rom.10: 10For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
(Matt.12:39- Sign of Jonah's) The water baptizim is symbolic of the Spiritual baptizim, overcoming death through Yeshua (Jesus) our Passover - Heb.2:14/ 1 Cor.5:6-8, and Putting YHVH 1st in our lives. The moment one puts YHVH 1st that is the moment of righteousness.

(can share more info on dates if interested)
each had a chief of the sanctuary (1 Chron.24:6,31) Father of Jn. the baptist was a serving Levitical priest (Lk.1:8)/ Decendants of Aaron Num.3:10 (the first Kohen / high priest) Kohanim- Levites (Ezra 2:26) / Divided into 24 groups each with 6 priestly families each of the 24 served one complete week with each of 6 serving one day per week on sabbath all six worked in tandem 24 groups changed every shabbat at completion of mussaf service
Throughout the word we see others were given to service yet not qualified as high priests such as the Nethinim- decendants of Nathan given to service.
Census taken durring return of a large group of Israelites in Ezra 8:15 showed lack of any qualified to leadership duties of the priesthood (no Levites/ Kohanim/ high priests) only Nethinim -(Nathan is to service/ not Levitical priests yet they were often given temple duties)(others were even more of a perversion of the priesthood Ex. 1 Chron.2:55/ the enemy within)
Anyone who isn't a Cohanim (Levitical preist) that attempts the postion being worthy of death. Num.16:35-40

Matza Recipe

* Step 1/ (Combine) Place flour, (salt and oil) in a bowl /and mix.(Oil Nor Salt is included if you want traditional matzah, some people add these things and still consider it qualified for communion olive oil and salt carry symbolizim of being set apart within the WORD!).
* Step 2/ Slowly add the warm water until the mixture reaches a dough-like consistency.
* Step 3/ Break your dough into small balls. (Some allow them to sit for consistantsy, however The Passover story mentions this process as being done quickly, thus rabbinic tradition put time limitations on "kosher" matza)
* Step 4/ Flatten out matza balls, cover a cookie sheet with a small layer of flour.
* Step 5/ Bake the bread in a pre-heated over at 350 degrees for about 5 minutes.
* Step 6/ Remove the bread from the oven when it reaches a (light) golden brown color.

No yeast (leaven).
Traditions of men or supported by Yah? You decide!
Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the Lord hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted. But Zion said, The Lord hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me. Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me. Thy children shall make haste; thy destroyers and they that made thee waste shall go forth of thee.
This hand gesture is used in the priestly blessing of the Kohanim (Aaronic/ Levitical priests of Israel). Also called the "birkat Kohanim"/ or the "nesiat Kapayim". I have shown many times on this site how hand/arm in Hebrew relates to both power and works (which is also evident in the AlephBet). We relate this to the postion of Mashiach being at the right hand of G-D meaning his postion is to carry out the power and works of Yah.
The above scripture is often used to relate to this Traditional hand gesture in that the shape is that of the Shin and Hashem (the name/ G-D). Thus showing that when blessings flow from Yah not men (however men sent with divine authority and judgement are called Elohim) but that his sent forth ones are but instruments of his power and works. This blessing is also traditionally performed by parents over their children on Friday night (Shabbat) prior to dinner. According to the tradition people are not to look directly at the hands when being blessed. This tradition is based around Talmudic interpretation describing God as peering through the "lattice" formed by the hands of the Kohanim, referencing the verse in the Song of Songs (2:9): "My beloved is like a gazelle or a young hart Behold, he stands behind our wall He looks in through the windows Peering through the lattices (הַחֲרַכִּים). Ha-kharakim means "the lattices" and this is the only place it occurs in the Bible, but splitting off and treating the definite article as a numeral produces ה׳ חֲרַכִּים – "[peering through] five lattices"
The Aaronic blessing (Num.6:24:-27) was recited with this hand gesture. 

Interestingly enough the hand gesture for "I LOVE U" closely resembles that of the priestly blessing. They form the same outline and both resemble the Hebrew shin.
