Dr Hollisa Alewine – Footsteps of Messiah Part 13 – KI TISA (The Fall of the House of Ahab …and the Shabbat Elevator)

The expressions clarify the verses in the Song of Songs concerning the Vineyard Israel’s (Is 5:7) need to mature in the fruits of repentance and its identity as the ripe figs of Passover repentance.There is a lack of people of righteousness among the Vineyard and Fig Tree Israel. Knowing that the “fruits” are works reflecting repentance, this is dire. The foxes have ruined the fruits of repentance, so they did not ripen. The Artscroll commentary is more specific, saying that there is a lack of teachers who will teach integrity. (The Prophets: The Twelve Prophets to Micah 7:1)

The preservation of the fig trees and vineyard is usually through watchmen [and women!] who build secure fences and stand guard on the walls for predators such as foxes. Ezekiel explains the problem: “I searched for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land, so that I would not destroy it; but I found no one.” (Eze 22:30)

Lack of care for the physical land explains the lack of care for the spiritual land’s destruction, its Vineyard.

DR HOLLISA ALEWINE – Footsteps of Messiah Part 4 (To The Gate)

The time of the voice of the final Turtledove King Messiah is represented by this familiar passage from Isaiah:

How pleasant are the footsteps of the herald upon the mountains announcing peace, heralding good tidings, announcing salvation. (Is 52:7)

This is why the birthpangs of Messiah are also called the “Footsteps of Messiah.” In the darkest night of mankind, Messiah’s footsteps may be heard upon the mountains, which represent the nations, and he is announcing salvation to the Fig Tree.

DR HOLLISA ALEWINE – Footsteps of Messiah Part 3 (The Wilderness Tribulation)

This week, we will look at the next wilderness: Yet, another “woman” goes to the wilderness. She is characterized by virtue:

“Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she had a place prepared by God, so that there she would be nourished for 1,260 days.” (Re 12:6)

The midrash to the Song of Songs explains why the woman Israel is in the wilderness and gives specific predictions about how the serpent will pursue her. The midrash refers to Isaiah 59:15 concerning this tribulation as a time when “Truth became absent [ne-ederet] and refraining from evil seemed foolish.”

DR HOLLISA ALEWINE – SHIR HASHIRIM: Footsteps of Messiah Part 1

In view of the increasingly troubled time we are in, I thought it worthwhile to present a Sukkot “after-party” encouragement to begin preparing for Passover. In fact, if you’re not already thinking about Passover, you’re behind!

It is traditional to read the Song of Songs during the Passover week. Its main theme is resurrection, but incredibly, the ancient sages’ commentaries link the Song to other prophecies. Their expectation of the ingathering of the exiles, the nature of Messiah, the times in which he will return, and the judgments are incredibly contemporary to what is happening to the fig tree Israel today and even headline news. This week and next, we will shine the spotlight on some of the expectation concerning the fig tree prophecy contained in

2:13 The fig tree has ripened its fruit,

And the vines in blossom have given forth their fragrance.

Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come along!

This week, rather than do a deep study of the portions, we will take a walk in the Song of Songs. This whole book is about the resurrection and in the 2 passages taught on in this episode, we shall see how this too correlates to the Yom Kippur service from this week’s Torah Portion. Hopefully by pointing some things out in this text you can see the beauty of what Yeshua Messiah has done for us.
