These following words my teacher Pastor Steve Gray spoke from Deuteronomy Moshe’s last will and testament to us Jews. moved me to tears Father’s Day Sunday June 17th.
“It feels different when a father carries a son all the way until you reach your place.”
“A father takes care of his people. A father takes care of his sheep.”
Then I saw with crystal clear clarity how my father carried us Jews in his arms from the beginning of time Adam, through Avraham, Yitz’chak and Ya’akov, Moshe, David, the destruction of the first and second temples, the Holocaust, to when the Moshiach- anointed one comes back.
Then these thoughts crossed my mind on the drive home. Moshe’s true soul is that of a Shepherd. Moshe carried and cared more for his people that himself.
Then G-d took the human form of Yeshua to Shepherd us Jews into the new covenant not like the first which we broke. This one will not be broken.
For you see G-d answered these words “Barukh ata HaShem Eloheinu, Melekh ha’olam.”
I can no longer be carried. I must start carrying my wife, my family, my friends, the people I work with, so they can reach their G-dly place.
It is time for me to act like the G-dly Jewish man HaShem wants me to be.
This is why I love my teacher Pastor Steve Gray.
