Shabbat Shalom Talmidim (Disciple),

Welcome to our study of this week's Torah portion, which is called Emor (Speak).

Emor (Say)
Leviticus 21:1–24:23; Ezekiel 44:15–31; James 1:1–18
“Then the LORD said to Moses, ‘Say [emor] to the priests, the sons of Aaron...’”  (Leviticus 21:1)

I want to start off by asking you a question. How do I get more from G-d? This week we read about how Moses spoke to the priest and charged them to obey the commands that were specifically set in place for the priest. It is amazing how we want more than what everyone has. We often get envious and jealous cause we don’t have what others have and some time we get into altercation cause we are “cutting throat” to be bigger and better than the next man. In this season of the L-rd many people are tired and at the point of giving up because of the lack in their life which leads to me to the focus point of this week’s study … the question … “How do I get more from G-d” well let me start by saying its defiantly not through anger strife and resentment. We have to stop “Hating” and start “participating”. Participating in what? In the commands! Many people think that it’s an old testament thing to keep the commands and because we are now under grace we don’t have to keep the commands. That is not true, Yeshua (Jesus) said if you love me keep my commands (John 14:15). Paul tell the Talmidim (disciples) hold on to the traditions you seen us do and what we have taught you to do the same
(2Thessalonians 2:15). They were all Jewish men. It goes without saying for a person who is Jewish to try his/her best to keep the commands and follow Jewish tradition. It’s the same for those who follow Christ because Yeshua (Jesus) was Jewish. Let me make it clear “we do not keep the commands to obtain salvation or to become born again” we must understand that there is blessings tied to keeping the commands for example when you Tithe the scripture says that G-d will rebuke the devour
 (Malachi 3:11) How many of us have experience lack in our life? Or have suffered unexpected lost? One way to protect yourself from the evil one is to pay your tithes (keeping the command to tithe). If we are honest I think I can speak for many when I say I’m not where I want to be, I want more! The key to getting more from G-d is when we align our life to his will and his will is made clear in the word of G-d by way of the commands and instruction given to us on how to govern ourselves. To whom much is given much is required. If you want more from G-d hating on your neighbor is not going to do it, cheating your way to success is not going to do it, you must obey the commands and the more you want from him the more you’re going to have to sacrifice.
So to answer the question How do I get more from G-d? by giving him more of you. It is impossible to be G-d giving …. Shalom!
