A HEBREW-CHRISTIAN BLESSING
By Rev. Jack Molloy
Have you ever looked for a good opportunity to publicly express your love for Yeshua (Jesus) and your acceptance of him as your Saviour? Perhaps the next time you enjoy a meal with family or friends, you might suggest offering a 'Hebrew-Christian blessing' for the food. Here is an example:
I was recently invited to a dinner with a large diverse crowd. It was held at a wonderful restaurant on the Florida gulf coast right on the edge of the beach with a spectacular view of the water. Everyone began to find their seats around a big table and introduce ourselves. After studying the menu we all ordered one by one. The table full of guests continued talking and laughing with each other as the food began to arrive. When everyone was served, I turned to the gentleman immediately to my left and asked; 'Have you ever heard a Hebrew-Christian blessing for a meal?' He responded that he had never heard one but would like to. At that point, the above blessing was offered for our meal. The table continued to devour the fare along with more stories and laughter and in a little over an hour we had all consumed our dinner. As the bill was being settled, the man on my left leaned over to me and quietly asked if it were possible, could I please send him the Hebrew-Christian blessing I had recited?
Isn't it a joy when you are able to PROCLAIM the Word of GOD, PRESENT Y'shua (Jesus) as LORD, and PROMOTE love for Israel (the Jewish People) - even in a small way with a Hebrew-Christian blessing?
From the Book of Isaiah we read:
Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem (the Jewish People), and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD'S hand double for all her sins. (Isaiah 40:2)
And from the Book of Romans:
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. (Romans 1:16,17)
Shalom in the precious name of Y'shua (Jesus)
