from the overflow of our heart

Covered by wings of Love



Love...

Love covers a multitude of sins.


You see, the word used to cover, in Hebrew, is kaphar כּפר. It is the exact same word used for the pitch that Noah had to use to seal the ark. This is our seal. Our atonement.

1 Peter 4:8

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

We are covered with His love. His banner over us, is love. And His love is what draws us closer to Him, causing our hearts to turn away from sin and to turn towards Him. Our hearts echoing, Hineni, Here I am! The same words that Moses uttered when the burning Bush spoke to him in a dry and weary land.

Exodus 3:4 NKJV

So when the Lord saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Moses, Moses!” And he said, “Here I am.”

In that moment, Moses turned away from his past and turned towards the Voice of the One who would become his Shepherd. He repented. Moses was a Levite. Oh, how profound that he uttered those words towards Abba. Here I am. Send me!


Yah sent Moses to His people who were crying out for salvation. Their hearts where longing for a Saviour. Moses, whose brother (Aaron) would become the High Priest, was a vessel of deliverance in Yah's hands. But true salvation, that would last for eternity, breaking the bonds of sin's slavery, would come from Yeshua Himself. The only One by whom we can be saved.

Atoned for

Made whole

Redeemed

And restored

He is our covering

Like an eagle hovering

Over her young,

with wings spread wide

A shadow where we can safely hide

An invitation

Of His salvation

He utters His voice

like mighty waves

To search and find

the lost to be saved

"Little ones,

turn away

From these things leading you astray"

It is His loving kindness

that leads us to repent

In that humble state of heart

He is sure to mend

The brokenness

As we choose forgiveness

70

times

seven

Cleaning out the leaven

From our home-like hearts

It needs cleaning in all the parts

Abba, send your Spirit to help us sweep

In every hidden and secret corner,

let us not keep

The things that are causing us and others pain

Help us to heal and be washed,

again

and

again

Yeshua, as our Carpenter

His Spirit as our Comforter

In this prayer filled process

Every mark missed we will confess

And You will compassionately

cover it all

A humble heart

You will not permit to fall

In this feast

We have the greatest High Priest

Making atonement for all sin

Changing us deep within

In order that this fountain being

May be a wellspring of LIFE

Yes, even life

eternally!



Isaiah 53:11

After the suffering of His soul, He will see the light and be satisfied. My righteous Servant will justify many by the knowledge of Himself; and He will bear their iniquities

In simple terms, I explained atonement to our little kingdom ambassadors, with the visual of us being in an ark or the basket of Moses. We need atonement (the pitch) for without it our ark or basket will surely sink when the storm comes. But how do we apply this pitch to our arks? Through drawing closer to Yah, through Yeshua, confessing and turning away from our sins. It is His loving kindness that draws us away from sin and closer to Him. And it is His love that then covers us.

Let us then draw near, beloved..

May Yeshua Himself, unveil His love to you, as you turn towards Him. He is your great High priest who knows your battles, struggles and weaknesses. He longs to redeem, restore and atone.


"I have a great High Priest
Who knows how I get weak
Who loves to show me mercy
in my time of need
You love to forgive
You delight in mercy"
-Dalton and Anna Thomas-

Will you boldly come to His throne of grace, vulnerable like Ruth on the threshing floor? Will you ask Yeshua to cover you with His garments of salvation, as you lay at His feet?


He is faithful to redeem.

Shalom on this Yom Kippur
