Rosh Chodesh Kislev
Month: Kislev Meaning - Trust and security. Sometime this month is called the month of dreams, as this month’s Torah portions contain more dreams than any other.
Tribe: Benjamin, meaning “son of the right hand”
Mazel: Keshet, meaning (Bow/Archer) The root of the word Keshet which comes from the word “to bend” and can also mean “Rainbow” speaking to us as covenant. God's covenant with us displayed, and for us to find by hitting the mark through Torah.
Your arrows are sharp: The peoples fall under you; your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies. Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of your kingdom.
A Mazel is one constellation in the Mazzaroth (Zodiac).
This is NOT to be confused with new age astrology. The enemy did not create the heavens… Adonai did! He set their courses, and determines their purpose. They proclaim the Gospel. They do not predict fortunes or one’s love life. They are obedient servants of the Most High.
Middot: Gratitude, Compassion, Helpfulness.
The word of God instructs in righteousness. It teaches us how to behave. One learns the difference between the holy and profane, so that we can choose to walk and live as master Yeshua did. By deliberately weighing actions and conduct with these Middot, it forces one to reflect on his or her inward spiritual life. Honest self examination with Adonai is real growth that will change the heart. A type of soul curriculum that helps to correct weaknesses and improve strengths.
Feasts: Chanukah (Feast of dedication/ festival of lights)
Themes: Dreams, Miracles, oil, menorah, cleansing the temple, overcoming great odds.
Scriptures: Psalm 7, John 10:22-42, Acts 7:55-56
