How to Understand the Will of YHVH: Day 6: The Earth Brings Forth

And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

Gen 1:24

 On day 6 when Yah spoke the first thing he commands the earth to do is to bring forth. The connotation here is similar to that of a woman bringing forth a child into the earth.   On day 5 the sky and the waters brought forth it’s creature and on this day the land brings forth it’s creatures. Yah makes a distinction between us, and the creatures that come before our arrival; the common link that we share with land animals is that we came forth from the dust of the earth. Let’s keep reading we will then see the distinction that is important to dispel the myth of evolution, and why the belief that we come from these same creatures that were created at the beginning of day 6 shall not be, if we believe God and that he exists.

 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Gen 1:25

 Again, notice that when God created every living creature that came before us that he makes it clear that they were created “after his kind”. Once again he repeats this for every beast, and cattle, and every creeping thing. Why? So that no one would get the idea that cross breeding between different kinds could exist. Thus a monkey can NEVER produce a human being because we are not of the same kind.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Gen 1:26-28

If we believe that God is indeed God and that he is not a man that he should lie then we must believe that this word that was written for us is true. The evidence of that belief is reflected in our acceptance of the verses written above. First and foremost what distinguishes us from the birds of the air, the fish of the sea, the beasts of the earth, and that which creepeth upon the earth is while God made it clear that it was good what he created before us, he never said about anything he created up to the point that he created man that they were in “his image and likeness”. He didn’t give the birds of the air dominion over the fish of the sea, or the beasts of the earth dominion over the creeping things of the earth. The power to reign, rule, and subdue the earth was given only to one created being and that was those who he said were in his image and likeness created male and female, them alone was dominion given. Work was created for Adam and Eve before they got here. Reinforcing the truth we know that idle minds are the devil’s workshop. When Yah created mankind he understood that he needed to have something to do. This is why so many men receive so much satisfaction from working, and many die after they retire. Why? Because wrapped up in what we do we find purpose, fulfillment meaning in life. The will of YHVH is not for mankind to walk aimlessly on this earth just fulfilling their own pleasures but to find fulfillment in discovering and living out their purpose by using their gifts that have been provided to them. We are not supposed to bury our gift but reproduce it. Touching other peoples lives with it, lest we lose it and our talent be given to another who will use and multiply it. Anything that wasn’t fruitful was hewn down, because dead weight can’t carry you to the next level. Accessing the dead weight in our lives is a good thing, because that which is not a part of your destiny is a distraction from it.

Questions to Ponder:

  • What did God instruct you to do with your life? If you don’t know have you asked? Scripture teaches we have not because we ask not, and he also covered if we ask and don’t receive. If we come to God wanting something just to fulfill our own pleasures we won’t get what we asked for. (James 4:1-3)
  • How do you value your life? Do you see yourself as less than or mediocre? Do you see yourself as being made in the image and likeness of God? Does your life and the way you carry yourself represent an example of the Father who you were patterned after? If you don’t evaluate who or what is in your life or who or what is not in your life that is giving you a false image of the original intent of your design?

How To Understand The Will of YHVH for your Life: Day 4 Created To Be A Sign That Shines

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

Gen. 1:14-15

            Notice where YHVH put the lights? Far removed from the earth and in a place visible to every place on the earth. Why? A sign must have the ability to be perceived in some way in order to be effective. A sign is for a purpose it ministers to every living creature underneath it. As we were instructed by our Messiah to preach the Gospel to every creature, because not only were we affected by the sin of Adam, but as the scripture also says the whole creation groaneth and travaileth waiting for the children of God to appear. (Mark 16:15; Rom. 8:21-22) A sign tells you something important and like an exclamation mark it is set apart to reflect attention to itself. A moon big enough that you feel like you can reach out and touch it can’t be overlooked, you can choose to ignore it, or dismiss it, but those who pay attention, know what time it is, and can map their way by it. Perception and understanding is important this is why scripture rewards the person who understands and perceives. See you can see and not see, and you can hear and not hear, but the person who can see and hear is liken unto the wise virgins who understood the importance of having a vessel full of oil, in the event the Lord delays his coming. (Matt. 25)

Signs give clear direction to the person perceptive enough to pay attention, and know what it means. This is the second time in Creation that God is going to say something about “lights” being created. On day one there was no sun, moon, or stars, only God, He himself lit the world up for four days. By day four He shared the light that was within himself with the world in the expression of a Great light to rule the day (the Sun) and a lesser light (the moon) to rule the night and what was after that was fragments of light that salt and peppered the sky called (stars).

Notice that signs is only the first part of how these lights function, they are also said to be for seasons. Your ability to know whether it is summer or fall will be based on these same signs in the sky. In our lives seasons will change and our ability to discern that change will be based on understanding how the heavenly bodies directly relate to our lives. What happens when you haven’t accomplished what you should have within the season that was provided? Does it carry forward or must we shift our thinking and our purpose to fit with the new season ahead of us?

 

Time is not forever, and if the changing of days and the shifting of light doesn’t tell us anything else it tells us that time is continuing, and every day we receive new mercies, why? Because gradually, but continuously even as the days change and new days arise, so also does our purpose have to change. Yesterday’s mercy isn’t extended to us today, or tomorrow, therefore new mercies must be provided for new days. You can’t recapture or accomplish what you were graced to do yesterday tomorrow, and the more tomorrows that come the less possible it will be to recapture the things you had in your heart to do years before. These signs are a constant reminder that we are on borrowed time, and any unnecessary baggage only serves as a distraction from fulfilling today’s purpose. Thus, while it is yet day we are NOT to harden our heart. Why? Because a hard heart can’t hear God and without hearing the Father you are destined to miss out on fulfilling in the season you’re in your purpose.

How many of us go to bed haunted by NOT meeting the goals that we have established for the day? How much of that could really be our acknowledging how short we are falling of fulfilling HIS desire for us in that day. Let’s consider what all God is accomplishing in a day. We have gone passed four of them and we all should agree that if we had to do all that he did on any single day it would be a massive undertaking. On day six He created us in His image and likeness, that being said what do you think His expectation of us would be? We all are going to have to give a reckoning or account of what we did with the signs and seasons he has given us. No excuses are going to be acceptable, we are either going to find hits or suffer the loss of the misses in our fulfillment of this work HE is doing. This is why understanding the will of God is so vitally important. Every day we put a new piece in the puzzle that makes up His overall plan for our life. The goal is to have the puzzle complete before we leave. Paul put it this way, he finished his course. (2 Tim 4:7) We do not want to leave any pieces behind because every one of us have our own puzzle to finish that we will put together with every other persons piece until we accomplish this amazing plan that God has laid out since Day One.

This brings me to the next thing these lights were to tell us, he didn’t stop at just signs and seasons, but stated that these lights were also for days. What we have touched on is the importance of our days.  How they are numbered just as the stars are numbered, and some days we can seemingly see every star, other days we see them shooting, and some days we don’t see them at all because they are hidden. While we may never live long enough to accurately number every star as sure as the Lord knows every number of hair on our head he knows the numbers of the stars and our days are accounted for. The bottom line is that is how we are, there are some days that we are shooting and moving amidst the stagnate stars around us making our mark. But how many of us can say we see shooting stars everyday? This is not a good thing we should always be moving in a way that others when they see us, sees Him high and lifted up. Our star should make people have to look up as every shooting star does exactly that. It calls you to attention, make you stop what you are doing and notice it’s presence. Unfortunately, many of us don’t have clear nights where the world can see us because instead we are hiding it under a bushel, or we are being distracted by the grey clouds that seek to distract us from living. Thus, most days we are like those stars hidden above the clouds. Our hidden visibility spanning years rather than just days.

This is the final thing lights are for, years. When we delay our purpose we find ourselves further behind schedule.  Signs in the heaven can tell us things that will happen years away.  Which is the other end of the spectrum.  Just as Daniel who received amazing revelation about things that would take place long after he was gone, we do serve the same God who has not stopped sharing revelation about the future with his people.  The only ones who lack benefit from this truth are those who refuse to listen.  Abraham had things put in place in his life and made decisions concerning his life based on a reality he would not live to see with his physical eye.  Yah even told Abraham to look at the stars in the heaven and prophetically revealed to him that his seed would be as numerous as they were. (Gen. 15:5)  Therefore, the stars in the heaven can tell us the future, but we must always remember that the future it tells is not focused on us, but on the One who created them.  They tell us about the Messiah, even as the wise men who sought the Christ knew by the stars that he had been born. (Matt. 2)

Questions to ponder?

What are you doing with the time Yah has given you?

Are you still focused on accomplishing tasks that’s time has passed in your life?

Is your heart open and receptive to what Yah is speaking for you to do today?

Have you put aside dead weights that seek to hinder you from fulfilling more perfectly God’s plan for your life?

A New Reality for Assisted Living

In the wake of considering the current situation we have and will have in our future it has helped me to re-evaluate what I would like to see in our world. Since I am old enough to have to face this reality for those I love who are older than myself, yet young enough to begin putting some thought and parameters in place to make my own decisions I would like to share my dream with you. Let’s face it those of us after the Baby Boomers are going to be in big trouble as we age. Our emerging machine oriented environment has neither equipped us nor our children with the social skills and emotional skills necessary to cope with what will be a major problem as I get older and those below me. Care and concern for the elderly is getting more and more callous and old school ability to stick it out and care for your loved ones till death do you part, well that is a thing of the past. Leaving us in situations where we are going to be more and more dependent on some sort of system to provide for the growing group of people who will be dependent on assisted living for one reason or another.

We are living longer now then any other time in modern history, we are told, but what we are not being told is the condition of the lives we are living as we age? We are not being told the cost of dying slowly and the misery involved as we age and our children and loved ones pretty much cast us aside to the professional doctors and nurses who are paid to care for us. This concern is however, emerging in an around about way for those of us in our twenties and thirties who are beginning to make better choices as it relates to food purchases, and investing in exercise plans. However, many of us based on our savings alone if we had to depend on it to ensure that we could age in a place that would provide for our needs in a way that we can maintain our dignity and not suffer from depression would be in big trouble. As we work we live the lives we want to live, and do the things we want to do, and it sets us up for a major let down if we had to face the reality of growing old in a government supported facility.

 

I submit to you, what if there was a way that you can plan for your retirement and live in a serene environment where your years of life on this earth would be both celebrated and put to use? If you could wake up every morning in a beautifully decorated home that gave you easy access and allowed you to have the independence you have always had, but in a resort like environment? If you could have healthy meals prepared, naturopathic doctors assisting you in prevention and traditional doctors available for routine maintenance at your fingertips, would that appeal to you? You wouldn’t have to worry about cleaning, cooking, or having access to relaxing amenities which allowed you to socialize when you like or retreat when you like. Enjoy the lively sounds of nature, the calming movement of water, and beauty that surrounded you at every angle. That would be the life, and it can be a reality for an affordable price for those forward thinking enough to start planning now.

 

I propose investing in an affordable fire extinguisher for your future. If you are not aware of the potential dangers involved in NOT planning for your golden years then I highly recommend you read my article, “Dangers of Throwing Caution To The Wind: How We Should Be Planning Ahead For Our Golden Years”. There I share some sound advice for those in the valley of decision concerning purchasing a family home and things you should consider to make wise decisions that can benefit your future. In it I propose questions you should consider, but saved planning options for your retirement for here. I personally became interested after my own family was faced with making such decisions and in my research on purchasing LTC (Long Term Care) insurance I begin to see the horror stories that befell so many people who have loved ones who paid years and years into a policy that they were unable to benefit from, based on technicalities, loopholes, and the outdated policies that did not cover the shift in current societal needs. Policies our parents purchased when they were our age didn’t anticipate the growing need for memory care and how that type of care could be financially draining. Insurance companies are probably easily getting bombarded with the growing influx of not only old, but younger than expected patients are depending on those policies to provide.

As it relates to traditional options for the growing needs of aging parents there are no remedies, cures, or options for reversing or slowing down the effects of aging ungracefully. However, the emerging naturopathic field is making great strides in using alternative, non or minimal invasive methods for either slowing down the rate of declining health trends and for some reversing diseases that had been considered terminal by traditional medicine. What needs to occur is a return to whole, organic, non “substantially equivalent” or also known as GMO foods, fresh air environments, and plainly put simple living facilities that don’t wreak of the havoc of our stressful environments. Even for those who are retired everything in our world is geared towards go, go, go. After spending 30 or more years working now our elders need a place they can retire in peace and enjoy the laid back life away from the constant bombardment of living. We have become so accustomed to irreversible diseases that traditional medicine, and nursing home, and assisted living facilities no longer even attempt to focus on getting people well enough to live independent of them, but has instead grown comfortable with the idea that those who enter their doors will be there for life. While I don’t offer you a utopia that will ensure that your loved ones will regain the life they once had, or promise that they could get well enough to ever live on their own, I submit to you that I do envision a place where that is the goal. The goal is not just to make you comfortable until you die, but to help you live a full life, and should you die here you can die with your life full not empty. Your years of wisdom tapped into, captured, put into use, and passing on so that your life has meaning till the day you die, and continues to live on through those you were able to impact until your last breath. While people can die even doing everything they should do, the ideology of naturopathy is vastly different then that of allopathic medicine. Every individual should have access to both, a naturopath that will focus on helping you reach your best, and the allopathic who will keep you from dying. You need someone who will you find out the root cause of your sickness, and you need the person who will keep you from dying as a result of the immediate damage an unhealthy lifestyle has caused.

 

I submit to you that it is possible however, to have the best of both worlds and the way to do that is to apply some of the principles of the time share model to what I call the life care model. Purchasing a timeshare is frivolous, but it gets its support from those who see the economic benefit in buying a service that allows them to have access to a resort that they intend on using year after year without having to pay retail pricing. Essentially buying your vacation time in installments versus lump sum payments. This too is one reason why insurance is usually so favorable. We trust the insurance companies to do what we typically are not disciplined enough to do ourselves hold our money for us until we need it. The problem comes when stipulations and access to get that money out has to meet insurance policies. What I am proposing is similar to a time share in that you are buying over time into a system that has shared investments based on need of use. The difference is unlike a timeshare should you need assisted living it will become the place you stay for life, not for a week or two. However, the shared part of this equation has more to do with how this system can function at an affordable cost and can be passed down to other members of the family based on need. Which is what makes it an investment. You would be in effect paying two mortgages in a way. At first more aggressively paying for the building of your structure, and then as you get older less aggressively paying for the amenities and the property that it lies on. The only benefit to this approach is if you don’t need it, and if no one in your family needs it, you can elect to rent your space out to someone who could use it now. Since most people haven’t prepared in advance for such a need you having a spot in an exclusive and progressive assisted living residents makes your property prime real estate for a family in desperate need of a good home for their loved one. This means you have the option as the owner to rent it out at what you pay or more at your discretion which would in effect mean you would be paying off the principle for your property before you actually need it.

 

Imagine having a retirement home already ready to go with the ability to accommodate any growing needs you may have. A place that provides services to keep you well as well as address your immediate needs. Imagine that this possibility for your life could be paid for right now would you be interested in it? I am working on a proposal that will allow for you to plan for your families needs and for larger families to invest together in an assisted living haven that would be accessible should their parents, themselves, or their children need it in the future. Something that would be affordable, provide for 24 hour staff, quality care, alternative care, and accommodate the lifestyle that you worked so hard to acquire, even when you can’t do for yourself. This would be a viable alternative for those concerned about current insurance policy loopholes that could limit your option for you and your loved one, and bleed your bank accounts dry. These facilities would provide state of the art care, luxurious facilities, residing in a retreat like atmosphere.

 

Those who think they might be interested in this proposal please fill out the form below and you will be kept up to date as this plan is put in place.

The Danger of Throwing Caution to the Wind: How We Should Be Planning Ahead for Our Golden Years:

Nothing is more heartbreaking then having to prepare for the inevitability of growing old not so gracefully. The sting of haphazard lifestyle choices and “treating ourselves” with unhealthy eating plays a toll even more as we get older. For those of us who live long enough and are just strong enough to require assisted living the traditional options ring of a bleak existence. The growing issues of dementia and the possibility of becoming disabled due to too many falls have made the need for either home care, nursing homes, or assisted living a reality that doesn’t just affect our parents, but also impacts how we must live in the wake of our parents aging.

 

However, having our parents dependent is still preferable to not having them at all. Anyone who has had good parents, want their parents to have the best, if we are not freed up to care for our loved ones we want the next best thing for them. Which in many cases requires assistance from outside of our home to accomplish. Smaller families with less children means for a growing trend to have to depend outside of the nucleus family for help. As I watch my parents and Aunts and Uncles age and many suffer from the unfortunate mishaps life can bring I am seeing the difference it makes in having a large family. My mom’s family there exists ten siblings and nine surviving and most of them still live in the town they were born and raised in. Having this large family structure meant that my grandmother could finish her days living in her own home, even with dementia, being cared for by her children with home health care being provided in assistance with the family surrounding her. My uncle who is not even the oldest who suffered some medical trauma himself that required him to be admitted to a facility for therapy has the benefit of several siblings who are popping in and out to ensure that he is getting quality care and encouragement. For my immediate family such a buffer doesn’t exist. As for my mom she only has two of us and as for my dad he only has three of us to depend on in which all three of us live a considerable distance from them in the event they were in need. Our circumstances would require that either our parents would have to leave the place they called home to stay with us, or would have to depend on their remaining siblings and/or facility aided care.

 

It’s heartbreaking and emotionally draining, as children you would like to be the one caring for your parents who brought you in this world and cared for you, and what’s even more disheartening is when they haven’t prepared for what could possibly happen to them during their golden years, so while you would like for your parents to have the very best possible care and living situation, your finances may at worst put them in a predicament where they could be miserable and neglected. This has caused me to re-evaluate a lot of things, not just for my family, but for myself, if God forbid I find myself in a future situation that would require me to have to make such decisions. I personally could find myself on my own since I have no biological children which is really causing me to analyze my future options and weighing how I should plan for that possibility.

 

While I have always been an advocate for living healthy so that you can live until you die, and this of course is the best way to avoid many tragedies that befall those who become sick due to auto-immune disease, the reality is it doesn’t protect you from a plethora of other things that could happen that can cause you to have to live out your days in an assisted living situation. Tragedy can strike in multiple ways in which diet, exercise, and proper rest can’t prevent. We all know that person who ate healthy, exercised, and slept on a clock who either died young, or tragedy struck. On the other hand we know that person who smoked a pipe, ate ice cream every night and lived to be 103 having no need of assistance. So I say that to say nothing is for certain, and no one is untouchable as it relates to sickness, disease, or the potential for disability.

 

For those of us who bought into the belief that less is better and cut our family down to one or two, or if you are one of those unfortunate enough to not have children then even more so you’d better start planning and saving for the facility that you would like to go into should you find yourself in need.

 

There are several options available for the financially prepared that may be most comparable for an assisted living situation should you not find yourself in a completely dependent state. You can opt to have in home care if you were wise enough to own a home that is already set up or easily convertible for handicap assistance. This may be the most affordable option for those who are in a limited financial preparedness situation. If you are in a situation where you are in your early thirties or forties I would encourage you to consider these factors when choosing a house. Many of us purchase homes with stairs and many of those stairs are needed to access places that are essential to daily living. Such as kitchen, bathroom, and bedrooms being located between or at the top of the stairways. If this is you expect that you will probably have to move should your lifestyle situation have to change due to impairment. If you own the house this would only be a temporary setback, which can be major if you don’t have a spouse, living children or trusted people to care for you.   If you live in a house that is loft style or open concept then making the adjustment will be relatively easy to live out your days or as many of your days as possible within your home with daily assistance or home care provision.

 

Unfortunately none of us know what our future holds, obviously advance notice could allow for us to prepare for the future more carefully and would possibly change the way we live our lives in the here and now. But since we don’t know, the smartest option is to install the fire extinguisher in our lives. Fire extinguishers hopefully will never have to be used, and in many homes it isn’t, but unfortunately there are times when it is needed and there is far less damage when one is there then when it is not. If you know that you have limited income and you don’t expect to win any lotteries nor have any rich uncles or aunts who just love you to pieces then you should consider when purchasing a home or moving into neighborhoods what would be the fire extinguisher necessary in the event you should find yourself in need of medical attention or assistance.

 

  1. Buy a home that is in close proximity to the hospital you would want to be admitted to in the event tragedy struck. Many times we don’t think about this as being an important factor in choosing where we live. We focus on school zones, but the reality is after you begin looking for a home that will suit your needs not just a family home the most important thing you want to ensure is that you live close to a hospital you would be okay with going to in the event assistance is needed. Many places don’t let you choose the hospital you go to when EMT is dispatched. You are forced to go to the nearest hospital and the nearest hospital might not be the best option for you or the one you would like to be admitted to. But this is critical because it is nearly impossible to get transferred once you’re there.
  2. Choose your home style wisely. When you buy a house you aren’t thinking necessarily about future possibilities, but in the midst of you falling in love with the kitchen, décor, flooring, and grand entrances, make sure that you look at things like how open is the area? Do I have to go up stairs to access main areas of the home like the kitchen, bathroom, etc… Is there at least one bedroom or an area that could be a bedroom accessible on the main floor? Are there stairs outside the home? These are things that may not cost you a lot in purchasing, but can cost you your life or your lifesavings in the event that you had to function at limited capacity in that home.
  3. Do I live in a desirable neighborhood? More important than having the fancy home is living in the fancy area. Even if your house value depreciates due to wear and tare, if you live in a sought after area, you would still be able to quickly sell your home if that became necessary to move into an assisted living facility. This is critical because unless you have $20,000 or more stashed away somewhere if you had to move into an assisted living situation tomorrow, this is not a scenario that would be cheap. Depending on the assistance you need and where you live you can easily be looking at anywhere from $2000 to $5000 a month. While that covers all your necessity of life living expenses it certainly doesn’t leave most money for anything else, and since your working days would be over having cash on hand will be essential and being able to sell your home quickly will be as well.

How To Understand The Will Of YHVH For Our Lives: Day Three: Gathering To Be Fruitful

It has been a while, but I haven’t forgotten the series, just enjoying the Feast days provided by our Heavenly Father.  A break from routine can be refueling for the Soul.  So we are now on Day Three and there is much to learn and much to see.  We will dissect and digest every morsel the Father has provided for us in this day of Creation to see how it impacts His Will for Our lives.
And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.

Gen 1:9

Throughout scripture we see this theme being carried out rather for good or evil. At the tower of Babel people gathered together, in opposition to Yah, yet even He recognized the power in their unity. Thus His response to confuse their speech was predicated by the statement, because they are one, nothing shall be impossible for them. (Gen. 11:6) It’s when the body reaches unity in the faith that it reaches maturity. (Eph. 4:13)

And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

Gen 1:10  

The theme of dividing, the element of two gatherings with opposing ideologies, directions, and functions. Before fruitfulness can take place there must be a separating and gathering of the waters. Like wheat from the tares, or authentic and counterfeit money it is only after the dividing of that which is evil is separated from that which is righteous, then and only then can effective fruitfulness for the kingdom be achieved. It’s when we gather with those who have the water that we realize how dry we were without it. It is in the presence of those with the same motivation and who are walking in their purpose that we begin to discover our own, and it is out of that discovery that we begin to find peace with ourselves and others around us, and can genuinely rejoice with others who fulfill theirs. Remembering Yah’s desire is for us to be fruitful and multiply and He is not looking for any type of fruit but quality fruit. This is even evident in the distinction between how he received Cain and Abel’s offering. Any kind of fruit, any kind of way is not acceptable. He wants good fruit, and abundant fruit. This can’t be achieved retrieving mixed teachings, only that pure wisdom that comes from above will provide the direction needed that is put in place by Yah’s built in organized family structure.

  And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Gen 1:11-12 

  Every seed yielded fruit after its kind. What kind are you?   We can’t begin to understand the will of God for our lives if we don’t know what kind we are. You can spend your entire life trying to become an orange tree when your seed is that which came from an apple. What ends up happening if you do that is you will stifle your fruit and you will be barren instead of fruitful.

The days of Creation are ordinal for life, meaning every detail put in place was essential to preparation for the next. Shooting out as a star, or having your brightness shine forth as the noon day requires separating from that which is dry and congregating with that which hydrates and nourishes, and cleanses the body like water. It’s hard to get all the nutrients your body needs if it is clogged. Understanding the order of God in the creation week helps us understand the order we should have in life. Recognizing that every piece to our particular puzzle has a specific place it needs to be and some pieces won’t be readily identifiable until other pieces are in place. I can’t expect to read well without knowing the alphabet. Understanding Yah’s order, and understanding what seed you are in His garden is key to unlocking the mystery of His will for your life.

Take some time to find out what “kind” you are. Ask the Father for understanding as to what He put you here on earth to do and access if the things you are doing are preparing you for that or hindering you from completing that. It would be a terrible thing to have spent your life following your own will, thinking that this was the will of God for you. Which is why we are covering this area. The more we understand who we are and why we are here the better it will be for the entire body of Christ. Every joint supplying what the body needs require every joint knowing what it is supposed to do.

It excites me to see people living our their purpose and fulfilling God’s will, it serves as an example and motivation to know that He has one for me, and if for me I know for you. He desires for us to be fruitful, and you don’t have to have children come out of your body to achieve that. As the scripture have said more are the children of the barren. (1 Sam. 2:5) If you have raised up seed to fulfill the “kind” that the Lord has called them to be, then you have bore seed unto Yah which is far more precious then just bearing seed in the natural. Many bear seed in the natural and cast them aside, whereas those who don’t bear in the natural, take in the natural seed and birth them in the Spirit such that they know who they are and what they were called here to do. For which is better to be born in the natural or to be born in the Spirit? Or should I say which is of greater profit to the Kingdom of God, to be born in the natural or to be born again in the Spirit?

In day three this is what you will discover, and I encourage you to ponder each question, chew on it, and let it regurgitate and chew some more, for there is much the Father has to say about His will for your life, but until now many haven’t been listening. This is the time to take out and meditate on His word and get instruction and direction.
