Yes, we at JTOD are aware that Giving Tuesday exists, at least in the minds of the nonprofits vying for your gifts.
I hope you’ll pray about it and ask our Father in Heaven what He would ask you to do!
I see a lot of potential for JTOD in the coming civil year 2020: Local teaching, worship and praise music and 10-string harps released, men’s fellowship, and more.
Realistically, to realize this vision, we desperately need access to the LORD’s funds.
I’m asking for an expansion of 31 Partners by Dec 31. Set up your partnership now at the Donate button:
The term “Black Friday” has become a phrase which is used to boost retail sales every autumn season. Where did the term come from? Is it related to Giving Tuesday, Thanksgiving, or Succot? Check this video to find out.
Is Giving Tuesday Related to Thanksgiving, Black Friday, or Succot?
New Moon occurs at 1 PM in Israel, 17th of Sept., which is the 29th day of the 6th Month;
Meaning the sunset a few hours later is the start of the Seventh Month which is Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets):
Leviticus 23:23-25 YLT
This lands Yom Kippur, the 10th day of the 7th month on Sept 27. However, the rabbis decided (man made traditions) that Yom Kippur must never land on a sunday, with back-to-back Shabbats. That’s why they moved the first day of the month to Sept 19 this year (beginning at sunset near the end of the 18th). This rule is nowhere in the Bible, so we leave Yom Kippur exactly where it lands, on Sept 27.
This is why it is so good to be FREE to follow the Word! It is a light burden, without all the added-on traditions of men.
Five reasons why your vote counts: If you live in a Republic such as the USA, Europe, or any nation in the world that’s not a dictatorship or a kingdom, nor ruled by a party which squashes free speech and falsifies votes, your vote counts, and you would be well-advised to prayerfully make your decision and cast your ballot with wisdom. There is a temptation to give up; to believe that your vote just doesn’t count, even if you have a representative government. Here are some reasons for that temptation:
If out of state, the Absentee Ballot is always an option. One easy way to arrange that is to phone your home town. Another way is via web sites such as:
1 Timothy 2:1-8 AENT:
1. I exhort you, therefore, first of all, that you present to Elohim supplication and prayer and intercession and thanksgiving for all men: 2. for kings and magistrates that we may dwell in a quiet and tranquil habitation with all reverence for Elohim and with purity. 3. For this is good and acceptable before Elohim our life-giver, 4. who would have all men live and be converted to the knowledge of the truth. 5. For Elohim is one, and the mediator between Elohim and men is one; (namely) the man Y’shua the Mashiyach, 6. who gave himself a ransom for every man; a testimony that arrived in due time, 7. of which I am constituted a herald and apostle. I speak the truth and do not lie, for I am the teacher of the Gentiles in the belief of the truth. 8. I desire therefore, that men may pray in every place while they lift up their hands with purity, without wrath and without disputations.
Let’s break out these verses, one by one:
Matthew Henry’s commentary on this text:
Here in the Middle East, it’s not every day that some nation makes an announcement of peace with Israel. The last time it happened was with Jordan in 1994. Prior to that it was Egypt, and that’s it. But the question is – is this good for the Middle East, good for Israel, good for the world?
Israel is dealing with the plague; In the midst of political changes; Three national elections in one year; and then the neighbors pick up again with explosive packages carried by balloons, incendiary balloons lighting fires in the southern farmlands (this is a recognized war crime); Rockets fired at civilian homes (another war crime).
Taking the high ground, the army responds by targeting missile launch sites, missile factories, and terror tunnels (not a war crime).
So, first of all, let’s take a look at Genesis 12:3.
Israel, the USA, and the Gulf States are in discussions lately about how and when to apply Israeli law in Area C, that is, in 30% of the poorly-named “West Bank.”. The USA set this as a precondition for the two parties – Israel and the Palestinians – entering into negotiations to agree on final borders.
In any case, this part of Judea and Samaria would certainly end up in Israel. The USA wants this to be established (along with the Capital) before talks.
