A Guide To The Baruchas

A Guide To The Baruchas…

In the 1960s, ‘Star Trek,’ a science-fiction series came on television. One of the most famous lines from Star Trek was the Vulcan greeting. Mr. Spock would lift his right hand, part two fingers to the right, and two to the left and say, ‘Live long and prosper.’

This is an Aaronic blessing going all the way back to Moses. Mr. Spock, Leonard Nimoy, was Jewish, and as a boy in a synagogue, he experienced a descendant of Aaron giving the Aaronic blessing. When he became Mr. Spock, he translated the ancient Aaronic Blessing into the Vulcan greeting.

Now, people of all nations can witness a Jewish man giving a condensed version of the Aaronic Blessing (Numbers 6:24-26). Thus, we see that from the Tabernacle in Jerusalem to outer space, the Jewish people exist to give and be a blessing to the world.

If you are a child of Israel, in Jesus, you too exist to give and be a blessing. So no matter where you are in life, a desert wilderness or somewhere in outer space, fulfill your calling today; bless and be a blessing. That is your prime directive, your mission on the blue planet.

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26

You’ve been blessed by God. Today seek to give the blessing of your love, your joy, your hope, your faith, in some way – to everyone you come in contact with.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
