Special Update April 30 2024

Lift Up the Word, Light up the World

This is the theme for this year's American National Day of Prayer on May 2, 2024.

It is absolutely crucial to pray for America right now. For such a time as this we must intercede for our King's word, plan, and purposes to be realized, as well as to fight the good fight of faith against the pernicious attacks of evil in all its forms within and without. Please read our latest series of posts, Engravers and Esthers, to open a treasure trove of strategy gems to help you intercede and shine the Light of His Word in the darkness.


Living Word, Light of the World, we ask You to tear down and completely eliminate any efforts of the enemy to build strongholds of antisemitism within America and internationallly against the Jewish people and the State of Israel. We beseech You to cause America's leaders and people (as welll as the international community) to bless, stand with, and support Israel so they will not be cursed by You, but instead receive Your abundant blessing of favor and protection.

In the Name above all Names, the Holy One of Israel, amen and amen.


Thank you for standing with America and Israel during this pivotal time in His Story. For more information on the National Day of Prayer visit www.nationaldayofprayer.org

Calling the King’s Engravers and Esthers to their royal positions
for such a time as this!


At pivotal moments in history, artists of the Bible used their craft to glorify their Creator. Young Esther rose to royalty to intercede for the survival of her people.

Learn the treasure of their strategies.

Artistic worshippers are instrumental in the King’s reverent repentance and redemption plan. We must go before the King to pierce the darkness and crumble the walls of evil.

Engage with Elohim, elevate His Name, experience victory
and exhort others with your gifts.

Modern-day artistic Levites, arise for battle
and may His enemies be scattered!


In The Chosen, the characters face spiritual challenges such as Mary’s struggle with alcohol Matthew’s insecurity, Peter’s pride, those of deceptive or demonic influences, marital struggles, strong spiritual opposition to their salvation message, and physical exhaustion.


As creatives today, how can we overcome and gain victory over intense challenges as we worship the Master Creator and intercede for those in need? One way is to look to the Engravers and Queen Esther as examples in our latest podcast!

(Thaks to a significant miraculous answer to prayer and a major office relocation, these will be posts until we can set up our recording studio again.)n


The Engravers

Zechariah 1:17-21
This is what the L-rd of Armies says: “My cities will again overflow with prosperity, and the L-rd will again comfort Zion and again choose Jerusalem.” Then I raised my eyes and looked, and behold, there were four horns. So I said to the angel who was speaking with me, “What are these?” And he said to me, “These are the horns that have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.” Then the L-rd showed me four craftsmen. And I said, “What are these coming to do?” And He said, These are the horns that have scattered Judah so that no one lifts up his head; but these craftsmen have come to frighten them, to throw down the horns of the nations who have lifted up their horns against the land of Judah in order to scatter it.


Some other versions use the word blacksmiths instead of craftsmen, only a few use artisans, Strongs 2796 charash, which means engraver or artificer. What about engravers/craftsmen would cause enemies to be terrified? We know Nehemiah’s builders had swords at their side as they rebuilt, and we have the sword of the Spirit which is His Word!

The Captain of the Armies gives us orders, protocol, skill, and wisdom with divine instincts for Divinely-led intercession, but we will only terrify the enemy if the King can use our vessels effectively.


Zechariah 3:8-10 (TLV)
Listen well, Joshua kohen gadol, both you and your companions seated before you, because they are men who are a sign—behold, I will bring forth My servant the Branch. For behold! The stone I have laid before Joshua is one stone with seven facets. On it I will engrave an inscription,” declares Adonai-Tzva’ot, “that I will remove the iniquity of this land in one day. In that day,” declares Adonai-Tzva’ot, “every man will invite his neighbor to sit under the vine and under the fig tree.’”


Just like the engravers who worked on the Tabernacle Exodus 31, 35-38), I think as the modern-day creative worshippers we can be considered the “engravers” or craftsmen, and will help rebuild the Tabernacle of David which terrifies the enemies of our King!


When Yeshua wrote or engraved in the sand in front of the woman caught in adultery, His authority to forgive covered her sin - like it has ours if we receive His atoning work on the cross, and will also cover Israel’s adultery. “It is written…” (And since the Word was with G-d in the beginning, perhaps even engraved from before the foundations of the earth.)


Yeshua removed the woman’s adultery in one day with HIS authority and told her to sin no more. His grace, in light of our own and Israel’s sin, cleansed us and will cleanse her so her accusers are silenced! Another theme the Spirit is leading me to work into this series is water - in this case the water of beautification, and in a way, purification. Her heavenly Husband was washing her, and possibly cleansing the whole nation of Israel from the sin of assimilation with the purifying water of His Word (Ephesians 5:25-27).


This is the same thing Yeshua (the Branch written of above whose name means Salvation) said in the wilderness to HaSatan, the enemy of our souls and the source of the evil working through our enemies today!


Let us take up His authority which lives and works through us as His creative army so we can declare and pray:

“Arise, Jerusalem! Let your light shine for all to see.
For the glory of the L-RD rises to shine on you.
Darkness as black as night covers all the nations of the earth,
but the glory of the L-RD rises and appears over you.
All nations will come to your light;
mighty kings will come to see your radiance. (Isaiah 60: 1-3 NLT)


And remember Yeshua declared this about Himself,

and if we have received Him as Savior, His Spirit lives in us:


The Spirit of the L-rd God is upon me, because the L-rd has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of the L-rd’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our G-d; to comfort all who mourn; to grant to those who mourn in Zion— to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the L-rd, that he may be glorified.

They shall build up the ancient ruins; they shall raise up the former devastations; they shall repair the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations.

Strangers shall stand and tend your flocks; foreigners shall be your plowmen and vinedressers; but you shall be called the priests of the L-rd; they shall speak of you as the ministers of our God; you shall eat the wealth of the nations, and in their glory you shall boast. Instead of your shame there shall be a double portion; instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their lot; therefore in their land they shall possess a double portion; they shall have everlasting joy. (Isaiah 61: 1-7 ESV)


The Esthers

We as children of the King with royal status are also called to intercede on behalf of the Jewish people now during their most intense struggle to survive to date, just as Queen Esther did in Persia centuries ago:


Esther 4:13-16 (TLV)
Mordecai told them to reply to Esther with this answer, “Do not think in your soul that you will escape in the king’s household more than all the Jews. For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place—but you and your father’s house will perish. Who knows whether you have attained royal status for such a time as this?” Esther sent this to reply to Mordecai, “Go! Gather together all the Jews who are in Shushan and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast in the same way. Afterwards, I will go in to the king, even though it is not according to the law. So if I perish, I perish!”


Arise, intercede, wage battle with the Word and worship, and shine His light!!


Here are three creative art worship themes for art, journaling or other expressions:
 “I have engraved you on the palms of my hands”
“Under the shadow of His wings”
“For such a time as this”

Post (Episode) 8 Similarities and Strategies  April 10 2024


The Creator worked through Bezalel and Esther, one imperfect vessel who built a tabernacle from materials to house the Presence of His King, and the other who built an future and legacy for her people by trusting her King. Both were used to change history with a specific destiny involving His people.

Bezalel and possibly the other craftsmen worked with gems, Esther wore them. Both are certainly gems in His eyes and earned jewels in their eternal crowns, though from what we know about their character, they probably laid those crowns down at their Heavenly King’s feet.

Both were prepared for and given a specific task, and used correct tools effectively
during a pivotal time in history  Both were obedient and willing.

Bezalel’s Strategy Gems

Gem 1 - His humble resolve to commit to the work for His Creator and creative excellence.
Gem 2 - His spiritual preparation & skill as he was filled with wisdom, and kept his relationship with His Creator strong.
Gem 3 - He understood Israel was at circumstantial pivotal point, and he helped to re-establish its culture.
Gem 4 -  He understood His position, knew his own response in it, and the cost if he didn’t obey with excellence.
Gem 5 - He followed the instruction of Moses (the recipient of the engraved tablets of the Covenant), worked with excellence and in unity with his team.

(The number five represents the Torah in Jewish thought and teaching.)

Both Bezalel and Esther understood the principle later written in Zechariah 4:6 ITree of Life Version)
6 Then he responded to me by saying, ‘This is the word of Adonai to Zerubbabel saying: “Not by might, nor by power, but by My Ruach!” says Adonai-Tzva’ot.

The Engravers are wise-hearted, stirred, ready and skilled to do His work not by might,
nor by power, but by His Spirit.

"Engrave an inscription...” I looked up Song of Songs 2 verse 3 "I delight to sit in his shade,”…(This can mean under the shadow of the Almighty- one meaning of the name Bezalel.)
    and his fruit is sweet to my taste.” (We will one day sit under His vine and fig tree.)
4 Let him lead me to the banquet hall,…” (This could mean past the Holy Place into the Holy of Holies)
    “and let his banner over me be love.” (So we can have His identity and can abide in His shelter)

Psalm 91:1-3  Tree of Life Version
“1 He who dwells in the shelter of Elyon, will abide in the shadow of Shaddai. 2 I will say of Adonai, “He is my refuge and my fortress,     my God, in whom I trust. 3 For He will rescue you from the hunter’s trap “ (Or plans of the enemy.) “and from the deadly pestilence.” (Of evil, unbelief, pretentious plans against His plan.)
And we read in Isaiah 49:16: “See, I have engraved you (Jerusalem) on the palms of my hands;  your walls are ever before me.”  (The walls in Jerusalem, but perhaps also being human, moving tabernacles inside His eternal Temple (Kingship, Sovereignty and Plan))

I have inscribed you in Hebrew:
חַקֹּתִ֑יךְ (ḥaq·qō·ṯîḵ)
Verb - Qal - Perfect - first person common singular | second person feminine singular
To hack, engrave, to enact, prescribe (Strong’s 27:10)

Psalm 61:3-5  New King James Version
“3 For You have been a shelter for me, A strong tower from the enemy. 4 I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah
5 For You, O God, have heard my vows; You have given me the heritage of those who fear Your name.”


Post (Episode) 9  Esther's Strategy Gems April 19 2024


We ask you to join us in an urgent call to prayer after Iran attacked Israel this past Saturday night, and Israel leaders decided on startegic defense mission today, Friday. Please also pray for the escape, rescue or release of the hostages still held in Gaza, protection for all the medical and military personnel in all departments of the IDF and comfort as well as strength for all those who mourn or miss their loved ones as a result of the conflict. May the Passover Lamb grant us freedom from those who try to oppress us this Passover. Chag Pesach Sameach to you and yours from us at Living Arts Tabernacle.


We as children of the King with royal status are also called to intercede on behalf of the Jewish people now during the nation’s most intense struggle for survival to date, just as Queen Esther did in Persia centuries ago… The war continues, this time with the bigger source of strife, but the King is on His throne. She knew to bathe, which might have even meant she immersed in the waters of a mikvah or ritual bath for purification and preparation for His Divine deliverance.

About this, Carolyn Hyde, a fellow worship-warrior wrote:


“Esther 5:1 in English she put on her royal robes. But the Hebrew says: וַתִּלְבַּשׁ אֶסְתֵּר מַלְכוּת which literally means "Esther put on the Kingdom"!

Also the phrase from Esther 4:14 "for such a time as this" is not complete.
"And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this."
“וּמִי יוֹדֵעַ אִם־לְעֵת כָּזֹאת הִגַּעַתְּ לַמַּלְכֽוּת?”

I love it that the word for attained is נָגַע which also means to touch. So an alternative translation could be "And who knows whether you have not touched the Kingdom for such a time as this!

There are times when we are called to literally touch the Kingdom…”

Could this possibly mean we engrave or make our mark for the Kingdom?

Esther 4:13-16 (TLV)
13 Mordecai told them to reply to Esther with this answer, “Do not think in your soul that you will escape in the king’s household more than all the Jews. 14 For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place—but you and your father’s house will perish. Who knows whether you have attained royal status for such a time as this?”
15 Esther sent this to reply to Mordecai, 16 “Go! Gather together all the Jews who are in Shushan and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast in the same way. Afterwards, I will go in to the king, even though it is not according to the law. So if I perish, I perish!”

Esther Strategy Gems

Step into Queen Esther’s royal robe, feel the weight of her calling on your mind… adopt her strategies as your own.
Esther interceded by starting with repentance and a dedicated prayer time and…
Gem 1 - Resolved to commit to her Heavenly King and the task with humility and prayer, was filled with wisdom and courage.
Gem 2 - Knew her true beauty and spiritual preparations. Mordechai taught her the Torah and she knew her identity and relationship with Her Creator strong, though secret.
Gem 3 - She understood the environment, the times, the culture, and her circumstances through His lens.
Gem 4 - She understood He gave her the position, knew how to respond in the position, and the cost if she didn’t use it to intercede
Gem 5 - Followed Mordechai’s advice, worked in unity with Her Heavenly King and the Jews.

Modern-day Esthers know Who to turn to for cleansing and preparation in their time of need, then arise to action.

2 Corinthians 12:9-11  Tree of Life Version
9 But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly in my weaknesses, so that the power of Messiah may dwell in me. 10 For Messiah’s sake, then, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in distresses, in persecutions, in calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Isaiah 61:10 TLV
I will rejoice greatly in Adonai. My soul will be joyful in my God. For He has clothed me with garments of salvation, He has wrapped me in a robe of righteousness— like a bridegroom wearing a priestly turban, like a bride adorning herself with her jewels


Isaiah 59:17
He put on righteousness as a breastplate and a helmet of salvation on His head. He clothed Himself in robes of vengeance and wrapped Himself in zeal as a cloak.



Post (Episode) 10 April 26 2024  Water of Purification, Preparation, and Deliverance before a New Season


In one episode of The Chosen, Eden miscarries, and she and Simon experience a crisis of faith in His Creator’s plan for them. Their parallel desperation is captured in emotionally and visually poignant images, along with Eden’s touching prayer, “Don’t let him go.”
Many of us creatives feel captive or irreversibly tainted by a decision or experience which negatively impacted or still impacts our relationship with our Creator. Fortunately, He never lets us drown in the consequences of such choices or events, and His next life-giving scene is a short prayer away:
Jesus, I believe You died for me to forgive and cleanse me completely. I accept Your forgiveness and (if you never have asked Him) ask You to enter into and rule in my heart as my Lord and Savior. Amen.
(If you prayed the prayer above for the first time, please write us a contact form so we can encourage you and pray for You.)

 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. John 1:9 ESV

Jesus answered him, “What I am doing you do not understand now, but afterward you will understand.” Peter said to him, “You shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no share with me.” Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, not my feet only but also my hands and my head!” John 13:7-9 ESV

He delivers us daily from our downfalls and weaknesses in the same way He delivered the Israelites from the Egyptians who formerly held them captive.

 That’s pretty powerful.

13 Then Yeshua came from the Galil to the Yarden to be immersed by Yochanan. 14 But Yochanan tried to stop him. “You are coming to me? I ought to be immersed by you!” 15 However, Yeshua answered him, “Let it be this way now, because we should do everything righteousness requires.” Then Yochanan let him. 16 As soon as Yeshua had been immersed, he came up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, he saw the Spirit of God coming down upon him like a dove, 17 and a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; I am well pleased with him.” Matthew 3:13-17 CJB

Yeshua, the Creator Incarnate, went to Yochanan (John the Baptist) to be immersed in obedience to His Father, and He in turn sent His Spirit in approval. Yeshua, the Deliverer on Earth, did not need deliverance nor purification, but He was about to level up His ministry into a much larger arena.

Queen Esther, too, went through this spiritual sequence of purification, preparation and deliverance:
On the third day Esther put on her royal robes and stood in the inner court of the king's palace, in front of the king's quarters, while the king was sitting on his royal throne inside the throne room opposite the entrance to the palace. 2 And when the king saw Queen Esther standing in the court, she won favor in his sight, and he held out to Esther the golden scepter that was in his hand. Then Esther approached and touched the tip of the scepter. 3 And the king said to her, “What is it, Queen Esther? What is your request? It shall be given you, even to the half of my kingdom.” Esther 5:1-3 ESV

Adonai, grant us Your Holy Spirit to guide us in Your purification, preparation, and deliverance prior to Your provision of a fresh robe (new identity or mindset) for an important consultation and commissioning from Your for a creative life change, event, project or season “promise land”.
I am so joyful in Adonai!
My soul rejoices in my God,
for he has clothed me in salvation,
dressed me with a robe of triumph,
like a bridegroom wearing a festive turban,
like a bride adorned with her jewels. Isaiah 61:10 CJB (emphasis mine)

We hope you are encouraged by this series. May we as present-day Engraver and Esthers remember and apply these priceless strategy gems and spiritual sequence insights wisely.
