Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem…
Psalm 122: 6-9 NLT
6 Pray for peace in Jerusalem. May all who love this city prosper. 7 O Jerusalem, may there be peace within your walls and prosperity in your palaces. 8 For the sake of my family and friends, I will say, “May you have peace.” 9 For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek what is best for you, O Jerusalem.

Consecration of the Levites
Once the twelve tribes had delivered an acceptable offering, the LORD said to Moses, “Give Aaron the following instructions: When you set up the seven lamps in the lampstand, place them so their light shines forward in front of the lampstand.”
The Jewish menorah pictured here is a little different than the lampstands of Moses’s day. Those stands were constructed of solid gold in a similar fashion, but burned olive oil to light the Tabernacle. The menorah’s seven flames symbolized (among other interpretations) God’s seven days of creation, with the center light representing the Sabbath day of rest.
I also note the importance of the “light shining forward” in preparation for the upcoming dedication of the Levites to serve as priests in the temple. The Levites were “set apart from the rest of the people of Israel” (v.6) to be priests responsible for the care of the Tabernacle and to make sacrifices to purify the people.
Listen carefully to God’s Word in Numbers 8:16-18:
“Of all the people of Israel, the Levites are reserved for me. I have claimed them for myself in place of all the firstborn sons of the Israelites; I have taken the Levites as their substitutes. For all the firstborn males among the people of Israel are mine, both of people and of animals. I set them apart for myself on the day I struck down all the firstborn sons of the Egyptians. Yes, I have claimed the Levites in place of all the firstborn sons of Israel.”
You and I have also been set apart as God’s chosen and as a priesthood of believers. If we fast-forward into the New Testament and read the first epistle of Peter, we hear that: “you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.” (1 Peter 2:9). Just like the Levites of the Old Testament, we have been called to “let our light shine before men, so that others may see our good deeds” (Matthew 5:16).
We are reserved for the LORD who has claimed us for himself. So whether you read Numbers to hear an ancient story of Levites, or to perceive a tale that points the way toward Jesus Christ (a “high priest in the order of Melchizedek and not in the order of Aaron”, Hebrews 7:11), or to write these words on your own heart as a follower of Christ, the message is the same. Let your light shine. Prepare the temple (“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit”, 1 Corinthians 6:19). Give your life to the work of the LORD.
Oh Lord Heavenly Father, you are so glorious and righteous. You gave us your only Son to save us from our sins and to give everyone a chance to repent and turn away from there sins.
I am still struggling with sin, legalism and the inability to listen which makes it harder but I do my best to do what is right according to your Word and what you ask me to do.
You got the best plan in mind for me and sometimes I get a bit impatient cuz I want results now instead of later. Right now I'm learning more about your word, studying it and looking over it.
"The message of Fátima is … a call to conversion and repentance, as in the Gospel. This call was uttered at the beginning of the twentieth century, and it was thus addressed particularly to this present century. The Lady of the message seems to have read with special insight the ‘signs of the times’, the signs of our time. The call to repentance is a motherly one, and at the same time it is strong and decisive. The love that ‘rejoices in the truth’ (cf. 1 Cor 13:) is capable of being clear-cut and firm. The call to repentance is linked, as always, with a call to prayer." - St John Paul II #feast #fatima #ourlady #ourladyoffatima #virginmary #motherofgod #kingdomofgod #catholic #christianity #lectiodivina #repentance #rejoice #prayer #faith #spirituality #carmelite #carmelites #peace #hope #love #courage #forgiveness #jesus #christ #motherofjesus #motherofchrist #inspirationalquotes #popejohnpaulii #stjohnpaulii https://www.instagram.com/p/COysevOBKfZ/?igshid=12y4pvq8z9y5n
