Rooted in Truth
Hungry for Your Spirit
As I get ready to type this up. I am praying under my breath that my mind would catch up to my spirit. What a month it has been!
We are in the season of celebrating Shavuot. Also known as the Feast of Weeks. In the Old -Testament this is where Torah is being given at Sinai and the Holy-spirit in Jerusalem in Acts in the Gospels.
The Father has really been pressing me to have a hunger for the Ruach HaKodesh. His holy-spirit. Let's discuss what was happening during this time of Pentecost. What is the Ruach (Holy- Spirt) and why was it being poured out in that season?
A gift worth waiting for.
So during this time Yeshua (Jesus) is ascending into heaven and tells his disciples to wait for the promise and immersion of the holy-spirit Acts 1:4-5
Have you ever waited on something?? An answered prayer. A promise from God. Or a miracle!
I feel as though I have waited my whole life to see God perform the miracle of healing and restoring my broken family. Last year my mom almost died. She is a diabetic and was diagnosed with severe depression. She lost so much weight and had a horrible fall and declined from there. I stepped in as her caretaker and intercessor. As the year passed I started to feel the weight of it all. I knew I needed help. Not just physically but spiritually as well….
I have learned that as a prayer intercessor. We pour so much of ourself into others. We forget about ourselves.
How can we give from an empty vessel??
This thought provoked me to think deeply on what the purpose of the Menorah served during the first temple times. The priest had to have it lit day & night. They would replace the wicks and pour fresh oil into the cups. The light of the Menorah symbolizes an eternal flame. Before you can be refilled you must first be emptied out.
I knew it was time to release the weight of what I had carried. I needed my cup to be filled again with new oil. And I needed the help of the Ruach to strengthen and empower me.
I wonder, why did Yeshua's disciples and the other people gathered in the upper room need this same power?
They were HUNGRY. They yearned for Yeshua to return to reestablish His kingdom here on earth.
So what is the Ruach HaKodesh (holy- spirit) and what purpose does it serve?
The Hebrew root word for Ruach has three letters. Resh, vav, and chet. The resh is a picture of the head, which means master, leader, or prince.
The vav means iron nail or hook, to fasten, and two that are separate for one another. The chet means fence, to seperate, protect, cut off, and sanctuary.
I understand this to mean the leader who fastens us to be set apart and protected creating sanctuary.
The Hebrew root word for Hakodesh has a hey, qof, and dalet. Hey is the picture of a man with raised arms. It means reveal, behold, and pay attention. The qof is the back of a head. It means least, last, or behind. Dalet looks like a door or place of decision.
To me this means as we let go of what's behind us. We enter through the door into a place of revelation in a position of raised arms.
When we put the pictographic messages together, we see that the Ruach HaKodesh is the leader that will set us apart to pass through a doorway into a place where God will identify Himself to us. With hands raised high we will shout for joy and give glory to our King for the delivered promise and miracles done through the power of the Ruach Hakodesh.
My mom has miraculously made a huge recovery and is now able to get up from her bed, showers herself, and even works on her garden. The Holy- Spirit enables us and prepares a worthy vessel inside of us for God to work and reveal himself. But you must empty yourself first.
I pray you are encouraged and empowered this season by the power of the Ruach HaKodesh and if you are in a waiting season. I pray that as you wait you surround yourself with spirit filled sisters that will strengthen and encourage you to keep walking.
And behold, I am sending the promise of My Father upon you; but you are to stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.”
Luke 24:49 TLV
Can I just say. I just love the messianic connection to Yeshua (Jesus) here. He is the eternal flame represented in the Menorah he is at the center. The shamash (helper) that lights up the rest of the candles. He also represents the vessel being poured out. He even says "if you are willing, take this cup from me" Yeshua was the embodiment of God's Spirit. He carried that same spirit within Him. May you be hungry for the Ruach and always be drawn in, whether near or far. May you be led by His spirit and walk just as Yeshua did!
You know how God anointed Yeshua of Natzeret with the Ruach ha-Kodesh and power—how He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, because God was with Him.
Acts 10:38 TLV
But you will receive power when the Ruach ha-Kodesh has come upon you; and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and through all Judah, and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Acts 1:8 TLV
