Lord Jesus, help me to live according to Your will, that I may always be ready to meet You when my work upon this earth is finished. Grant me, Lord, time for repenting for my failures and omissions, and may I end my days here with a peaceful death, comforted by the fullness of Your grace. I ask for salvation for myself, my family and relatives, my friends, and for all my brothers and sisters in Christ. Bring us all safely home to You, Lord, that we may praise You and bless you forever. Amen. WONDERS IN HEAVEN ?JESUS SAID: THERE WILL BE SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS and THE EARTH Are you looking up as your redemption draws nigh For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be. I CAN ONLY IMAGINE Matthew 24:27 One day the disciples came to Jesus and were given a private briefing regarding what signs to watch for before His promised return... As He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?" And Jesus answered them and said to them, "See to it that no one misleads you. "For many will come in my Name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will mislead many. "You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. "For nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes, "But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs. Matthew 24:3-8 And in the Gospel of Luke Jesus says, "There will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Luke 21:25-26 Abwoon d'bishmaya (Our father who is in heaven.) abwoon = or Father d-bishmaya = of whom/which - in - heaven Nethqadash shmakh (May your name be holy.) nethqadash = will be holy shmakh = your name Note: The imperfect or "future" tense can be used as an adjuration, i.e. "May so-and-so happen." Tethe malkuthakh (May your kingdom come.) tethe = will come malkuthakh = your kingdom Nehweh tsevyanakh (May your will be [done]) nehweh = will be tsevyanakh = "your will" or "your desire" Note: This literally means closest to "Your will will be" which is awkward in English at best. Aykana d-va-shmaya (As it is in heaven) aykana = like, as d-va-shmaya = of whom/which - in - heaven Af b-ar`a (Also be on the earth) af = also b-ar`a = in/on - the earth Hav lan lakhma (Give us bread) hav = give lan = to us lakhma = bread D-soonqanan yomana (Every day) d-soonqanan = of which (is) - constant yomana = daily or "every day" U-shvuq lan khaubeyn (And forgive our sins) u-shvuq = and allow/forgive lan = unto us khaybeyn = our sins/debts/shortcommings Aykana d-af khnan (Also as we) aykana = like d-af = in the same manner - also khnan = we Shvaqan l-khaiveyn (Have forgiven sinners) shvaqan = we've forgiven l-khaiveyn = unto - sinners/debtors/the guilty, etc. U-la te'lan l-nisyouna (And don't lead us into danger.) u-la = and - not te'lan = lead us l-nisyouna = unto - danger/temptation Ela patsan men bisha (But deliver us from evil) ela = but patsan = deliver us men = from bisha = evil Metul d-dheelakh hi malkootha (Because the Kingdom is yours.) metul = because d-dheelakh = of which - "yours" (it's a grammatical construct signifying ownership which is a bit complicated to explain here) hi = is malkootha = kingdom U-khaila u-theshbookhtha (And the power, and the glory) u-khaila = and - power u-theshbooktha = and- glory `Alam l-almeen (Forever; To eternity) `alam = forever l-almeen = unto - the ages (idiom. "eternity") English Only: Our Father who is in heaven, May your name be holy. May your kingdom come, May your will be done, As it is in heaven, Also be on the earth. Give to us bread Of which we need today. And forgive unto us our sins Like also we have forgiven sinners. And not cause us to enter danger, But deliver us from evil.
