Spring Cleaning

The Feast of Unleavened Bread is a perfect time to do spring cleaning.  It’s an ideal time to clean both the in and outside of your cup.  Those who keep or at least commemorate The Feast of Unleavened Bread understand the importance of ridding ones home of any and all leaven.  Those of us who love Messiah knows no matter how many places you look or no matter how thorough you are there is a possibility you have overlooked some and found leaven in your midst.  Bottomline even when we strive to live a life without leaven (sin), it’s presence is always near lurking in the corners or recesses of our mind.  Not that we always reach for it or touch it, because it is far easier to keep from eating leaven for seven days then to locate all leaven that could be stuck in drawers or little fragments waisted here or there.  Thus as scripture says, “…when I would do good evil is present with me.” (Rom. 7:21)

Amazing thing for me is every year I observe the feast the more humble I become concerning it.  It helps me realize how vulnerable I am to sin and how desperately I need his wisdom and direction.  The more I learn, the more I realize I don’t know.  When starting to keep the feast there is this childlike zeal you get like finding hidden treasure.  You want to share it with those you love, but you want to make sure what you found is indeed real.  Once authentication has taken place and you begin to share this treasure with others you begin to find yourself in debates instead of being able to enjoy the fruit of your findings.  Your zeal can turn to dogmatic arrogance as the goal changes from sharing the treasure to debating its value.  You begin to understand that people can be looking at the same treasure and one sees its value while the other sees flaws.  Likewise, I look back at how often we shared the treasure of Yah’s feast and some saw it as legalistic rituals that didn’t apply to them and others saw it as the missing link.  The “more” they knew their faith possessed.  Today, I just feel grateful that Yah has opened my eyes to see the truth and to have a love for it even if it debunks my long held beliefs. I don’t feel it is my responsibility to prove its authentic value, but simply to present it for what it is and let others come to their own conclusion.  My prayer is that YHVH will open my eyes and theirs to all the truth and embrace where it leads us.

Having said that this year it dawned on me the physical health benefits of fasting from yeast.  As many people know yeast is the main culprit for fungus growth.  While I admittedly have not done an in-depth study on the link between fasting from it and improved health. I realize Yah’s commandments have fulfilment on multiple levels. We know Deuteronomy 28 makes it clear the keeping of Yah’s commandments produced physical blessings.  

They also take in consideration seasons and agriculture.  So I propose this, what if fasting from yeast provides a biological reset?  Like rest to the land every 7 years helps improve soil, could fasting from yeast the prescribed seven days help immobilize the overgrowth of fungus in our bodies, and aid in proper digestion of freshly created yeast after the seven day fast?  I can’t confirm this yet, but that will definitely be my quest, to research this link.  If you know of any research or have any thoughts on the topic would love to hear it.

Knowing The Time How Then Shall We Live

I am humbled when I consider how YHVH has privileged me in this day and hour to know both who I am and what time it is.  Living in a generation where counting to three has proven to be difficult, we have managed to effectively get wrong the one sign the Messiah has given to a wicked and adulterous generation. (Matt. 16:4)  The sign of yet another prophet, Jonah.  Whose life was a prophetic picture of what the Messiah would go through.  From sleeping on the boat during the storm to spending three days and three nights in a place associated with Sheol.  We have not only observed the wrong day, but the wrong feast.  Yet, this day Yah is opening the eyes of those who have a love for the truth.  Whereas through time, bits and pieces of the ancient paths have been metriculating through various individuals we are now beginning to see the flood gates of information opening.  As knowledge is increasing and men going to and fro the lines are being drawn and as it was in the wilderness, those who will stand with the Lord will be the remnant and not the majority.

This year our brother Judah will celebrate 50 years of Jerusalem being in the hands of Israel this Passover, and 70 years of being in the land that was promised to our forefather Abraham.  The name which was fittingly chosen for this land which is called Israel was given to Jacob by the Almighty. (Gen. 32:28)  Who in turn named this name upon Joseph’s two children Ephraim and Manasseh. (Gen. 48:16)  This fiftieth year celebration is not only a Jubilee for Judah, but it is also a Jubilee for the ten lost tribes who are the bearers of the name, Israel.  The name that was given to them by Jacob and in this day they who were scattered and lost are now being set free by the Gospel that was sent specifically to them. (Matt. 15:24)  So as promised in Gen. 15:13 now is the time that YHVH is ready to grant us freedom from the servitude and affliction that has been 400 years accomplished, and a transfer of wealth is going to take place, just as it did in the physical Egypt, so shall it be in the spiritual one.  The nation responsible for such affliction is going to experience judgment, and for that reason we should be making sure that we have taken off the pagan garments that we have sheltered ourselves with for so many years, and begin to yoke ourselves to the truth of Yah’s word.  Even as Messiah delivered Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego who were, due to captivity, clothed in the clothing of their captors, thrown into a fiery furnace yet experienced no harm to themselves, but found themselves purged of the garments that clothed them of sorts in a consuming fire found themselves purged of the pagan attire, and found unharmed from the furnace, but to the wicked it shall not be so, they shall be consumed.  (Dan. 3)

Now, many of us have been told the truth and due to the power of tradition we continue to wear the pagan garments of Easter (Asherah) and Christmas (Baal), while others of us hungry for the truth find ourselves conflicted and slow of heart to change.  Nevertheless, scripture makes it clear that those who will escape in this hour are not simply going to acknowledge the truth, but love it.  To love it means to live by it, and because of the passion we have for it we are willing to throw away those singed garments desiring rather to be adorned in the apparel chosen for us by the Almighty.  I didn’t say it would be easy and like the three Hebrew boys mentioned earlier it will be a narrow walk which will bring about scorn and ridicule until YHVH openly rewards you with victory for your faithfulness to him.  As we read in Revelation many will rejoice at your demise, again only to have the Almighty raise you up in victory.(Rev. 11)  So, how then shall you live realizing these things?  Well, scripture says it best and I will leave this article with such words,

He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.  (Rev 22:11-15)

 

 

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 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.

Message for the Body of Christ

Evening prayer word from the Lord
10/6/16 -3pm

Be not surprised by what you see in the US. Don’t make the mistake of being bitter concerning the ugliness that is being displayed, also don’t be afraid. Cry out to me in prayer, begin to get comfortable hearing my voice and begin detaching yourself from undeserved allegiances. The world as you know it is going to change. No place is going to be safe accept the place I placed you. Spend more time listening for My voice in prayer. Think mobile, and unload dead weight. Make no allegiances with this world system, and incur no more debt. This is the time to inquire of vessels and to fill them with oil. Hear by the Spirit of God, in this hour the currency that will deliver you is the anointing.

Did I not say that the day will come that you will only be able to deliver yourselves? That time is near my faithful ones. This is the time to intercede for wayward children, if they do not repent they will not escape. Did not Cain and Abel come from the same womb? Did not Jacob and Esau come from the loins of Isaac? Only those who love NOT this present world will escape the judgment to come.
I have used the events of these past few years to bring you to me. Your hope has been misplaced, man cannot deliver you. The government will not save you. Only I can protect you, says the Lord. Cry out to me will I not send a deliverer as I have done in the days of old? Trust in me and my laws as much as you trust in the system of this world. The heart of the King of this nation is in mine hands and as the rivers of water so do I turn it. I have allowed the immoral laws to stand, yet no one asked why? I have allowed the laws of this constitution to be overlooked, yet ask me ye not why? I have allowed wickedness to continue in the places that claims my Son’s body worship within its walls, yet ask me not why? Just as I allowed Moses to mediate between me and my people, I allowed Saul to be King in my stead. I have given you over to your request, to prove to you the wickedness and deceit in your own heart.
I have sent forth Prophet’s but you have not heard. I have sent forth Evangelists to gather my sheep, and I have called forth Teachers to equip my people, but you did not want them. But rather flocked after men of your own heart, who will prophecy prosperity when your hearts are defiled. I say to you as I said to Cain. If you do that which is right won’t I receive you, if you do not sin awaits you at the door.
My leaders can read the Greek and Hebrew text, but no longer need my Holy Spirit. They honor ways and traditions of men, but diminish the importance of being led by my Spirit. Esteemimg eloquent prayers, over speaking in tongues. The baptism in the Holy Spirit and Fire will not be optional to make it in this hour. Seek Me don’t try to figure me out, says Yah. My ways are passed finding out but my instructions are clear.
