El Shaddai: Jacob’s Ladder, Israel’s Messiah

As a rule, I avoid all things esoteric. But, (and here’s the but) …

The video below is by Messianic Rabbi Shapira. While it appears to delve heavily into Rabbinical lore and even Kabbalah, the Spirit of the Lord is upon me and has told me to share this. That does not mean that the video is 100% correct nor that, as a rule, Kabbalah is ok. Rather, I believe the Spirit is showing me that there is something extremely valuable here for instruction.

Israel’s ultimate redeemer will be like Moses — mediator between heaven and earth — only better. Whereas Israel’s first redeemer was half man and half God, Israel’s final redeemer will be (is) all man and all God. And this mediator’s intercessory prayer controls Jacob’s Ladder, gateway for angelic access to earth and Israel’s access to heaven. When all Israel yearns for the Messiah to come, crying out “Blessed is He that comes in the name of the Lord”,  His prayer (of tears) will lower that ladder.

In Jesus’ Name

In Jesus’ name: Stop me if this doesn’t make sense.

The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is the one true God. From their lineage, a descendant of King David named Jesus reinforced this message in words and deeds. This man was and is the anointed one – that is to say he is the Godly-appointed Messiah for man.

With time, be it gradually and inadvertently or knowingly and flagrantly, man deviates from this message. And when man deviates from the Word of God, death and destruction follow. The Israelites of the Bible were a living testament to that.

And nothing has changed: for Israel or for the world at large.

The message is clear and simple. It is plain as day. It is not difficult or dreary.

Just accept the Word. Just accept Jesus as your Messiah.

And that’s it. It’s not complicated.

Now go ye forth and walk in that Word.

In Jesus’ name.

Amen.
