How to Understand the Will of YHVH for your life: In the 7 days of Creation Intro

Once again Yah has redirected my study and put a pin in my plans. We will continue to look at biblical examples of how to understand the will of YHVH for our life but there is some framing to this house of truth that must be built before we begin adding drywall, flooring, and ceiling tiles. Another important sevens we must consider that relate to us directly in our relationship with the Father, reveals Yah’s plan for every human being from beginning and I would be remiss not to share this important part in the overall picture to this well put together elaborate puzzle we are constructing. But i don’t want to give it all away. Enjoy this 14 minute video introduction. It will give you all the necessary details for where we are headed.

How to Understand the Will of YHVH for Your Life: Part VIII Hearing Her Voice When She Calls

Understanding the seven characteristics of YHVH is the foundation for understanding the Will of YHVH for your life. Understanding is the necessary bridge we must cross in order to get to her, wisdom that is. If we think about knowledge as being on one side of a cliff and understanding being the bridge that connects us to the other side of the cliff we are trying to get to which is wisdom. The distance between the two being too far to jump across, and too deep to risk falling, then we find that we can have knowledge, but without the bridge of understanding the path is too far for us to get to wisdom, and unfortunately many people spend their entire lives paying for knowledge only to never even find the bridge of understanding to have wisdom before times up. If you find yourself having the fortitude to read this article and to have kept up with this series consider yourself in the minority of the entire world who will acquire degrees many, and will ever be learning, but never coming to the knowledge of the truth. (2 Tim. 3:7) Whose eyes will always be darken though they search for her (wisdom) with all of the tools that knowledge has within it’s hands.

Don’t get me wrong, knowledge is necessary to get to the bridge. I mean if we do not have the ground beneath us to hold us up we are free falling in which the end of that person is destruction. So I do not minimize knowledge in this process of learning, I am simply saying that it is just the first step, but a necessary step it is. Those who neglect this step can find themselves as pointed out dead before they find the bridge. Knowledge is the basics that we can acquire and reveals that we are reaching for God, but understanding requires humility. It means that we have to depend on someone greater than ourselves to translate the information we have received. The lithmus test to our understanding is revealed in our application of the information we have, and wisdom reveals that we understand why what we did worked. A person who has wisdom understands the formula thus, they can duplicate the recipe in the event of repetition being required. This is why a wealthy person who loses their wealth can easily acquire it again as long as they understand why what they did worked.

Wisdom is spoken of in scripture in the feminine form, and while our male counterparts may find some solace in ignoring us because of Eve’s deception, it doesn’t erase the fact that in Yah’s infinite wisdom He chose to connect wisdom throughout the book of proverbs to that of a wise woman. Unfortunately, too many of our young men will go down the road to destruction because wisdom had called out to him and their inability to discern the virtuous woman of wisdom from the seductive woman of whoredom causes them to make poor choices that have destructive consequences to their future. Thus as stated earlier if we pursue wisdom instead of riches we will receive both. This is the understanding of why Solomon achieved such great success. He didn’t seek after riches, rather he sought after wisdom, and understanding that wisdom answers the “why something works” question, meant that all the other things would come. Wisdom ultimately representing the Kingdom of God, we can now understand why Matt. 6:33 instructs us to seek first the Kingdom of God, and all the other things will come. This was walked out in Solomon’s earliest days in power, thus, God gave him all the other stuff because he sought the Kingdom in his request.

Think about it, if you understand why your body functions better with certain foods rather than others then it stands to reason if you follow the wisdom you acquired your life will be healthier and longer. If you understand why your business formula produced wealth then you understand how to duplicate it thus your pockets get fatter.   This is why proverbs not only connects wisdom to the feminine gender but also compares it to rare jewels like rubies, or precious minerals like gold. It may take you a lifetime to find the formula, but if the formula is accurate it represents a greater wealth to leave down to the next generation then a handsome trust fund. How many children do we know who didn’t get their parents formula for success grew only to lose the wealth their parents acquired in their lifetime? Had their parents had the wisdom to pass down instead of the accumulated wealth then the family dynasty would be established for as long as they kept the secret.

The word of Yah is the timeless formula that has been passed down from generation to generation that if believers lived by it would see generational prosperity. The reasons many believers suffer from the very diseases that the God of Israel said he wouldn’t put on His people, is due to his people not believing or knowing what his word said about how to have life, and have it more abundantly. Yes we know the scripture that says that Jesus came that we might have life and that more abundantly, but we haven’t figured out the formula that Jesus walked in so that the blessings that were upon Him would be upon us. While the poor would be with us always, this was not supposed to be the case for His children. His children were called to be the head and not the tail, above only and not beneath, to be lenders and not borrowers, why? (Deut. 28:1-14) Because our wealth just like our works are supposed to connect those who are without to the Creator.

Our misunderstanding the instructions of God written in the first five books has caused us to be subject to the very curses that Jesus came to deliver us from in this earth. A child of God will not lose their eternal life for eating a pork chop, but certainly they will forfeit the quality and quantity of their life for not taking heed to the Father’s diet. Ignoring the wisdom of the Almighty costs us something always. Let us not think that our disobedient choices have no consequences otherwise we will find ourselves prey to the enemy and food for his menu. Understanding the will of YHVH requires that we have a heart pliable to Him so that when He speaks we will hear and obey without delay.

Next week we will start looking at biblical examples of those who walked in their purpose starting with Father Abraham. We will extract what common threads we can see in their life and examine ourselves to see where we may be falling short. Scripture makes it clear that the things that were written were written for us on whom the end of the world have come. There is no greater time than now that we need to know what the will of YHVH is for our life. We cannot afford to ignore the voice of the Almighty, and we must recognize that our lack of obeying can have dire consequences for both us, and those connected to us.

 


Do you know why Jesus told us to Be as wise as a serpent?  Have you ever wondered why he said that?  Did you know the invisible things of God can be seen by the things that he has made?  (Rom. 1:20)  In this book based on Matt. 10:16 Torie zeros in on that phrase and shares from the characteristics of the serpent wisdom that transcends time.  Follow her through the scriptures and strategically begin applying the wisdom of the serpent to your life as Jesus instructed.

How to Understand the Will of YHVH For Your Life: Part IV Distinguished by Distinction

Walking in the character of YHVH means we are a unified one, with three parts of our one being, that are equally important and now we learn created with distinction.  Even amongst equals there is a first, and we know that first is YHVH, the Father.  The will supercedes the words we speak or the actions we take.   The will is the driving force behind us, the motivation in what we do, which is why God takes it straight to the gusto with us bypassing the superficial things that mankind looks at and looks directly at the heart.  It is only at the heart of the matter do you get the truth of the matter.

In our world we have magnified equality to the point that we want to completely remove the importance of distinction.  It is distinction that is being attacked in the feminist movement.  The feminist movement proves that Eve still suffers from the same area of deception that she suffered from in the beginning.  To trust YHVH, who said that when He created us He did so in His image and likeness.  What did the serpent do?  He caused her to doubt God, and question her identity.

(Gen 1:27)  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

(Gen 3:5)  For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

(Gen 2:17)  But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Gen 3:4  And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

So let’s just consider the course of events, God said we were created in his image and likeness.  What does the serpent convince her?  That only if she eats from this tree God forbid them to eat from shall she be as god.  The next point God said if you eat from this tree ye shall surely die, what does the serpent convince her?  Ye shall not surely die.  What is the point I am making?  The enemy is very successful for helping us answer the wrong questions and consider the wrong things.  For instance the question we should have been thinking is why do we want to know evil?  How is eating something going to give us what we already have?  So what are we doing today?  We are forcefully fighting for the equal right to fight in wars, yet we don’t see men fighting for the right to carry a baby for 9 months or breastfeed one?  The enemy has us fighting the wrong battle because he has successfully caused us to ask the wrong questions.  Which leads to us being at war with the distinction God created within us.

Our distinction when celebrated makes us a very pivotal part of fighting any war.  Every war requires healthy soldiers.  We are the suppliers of those soldiers.  We are the necessary part of the development process for men to learn and develop courage.  He gains confidence from the security he gets from his mother’s voice.  Her nourishment returns in him a courage that for her he will fight to protect.  Yet, this is only half of who he is, the distinctive role of the Father is where he begins to understand his purpose.  Having confidence with no aim is fruitless.  While mom helps him understand why and how, it is dad who helps him know what to do and when.  Together their distinction makes for an equipping team that when appreciated and respected will help a son or daughter confidently walk out their role in life.  You never send a woman to do a man’s job, and a man cannot do a woman’s job.  If we can learn to equally appreciate and respect our distinction then working together we can fulfill our God given purpose.  It is futile for us to expect that we can achieve peace among nations when we aren’t even at peace among ourselves.  Just because we can do something doesn’t mean we should.  In this battle that is raging against the sexes and in our zeal to prove to men that we can do their job we don’t ask ourselves what’s the end to erasing the distinction?  The end is the perverted product we see before us, where men want to be women and women want to be men.  Where people are offended by being recognized as a specific gender.  Children being required to produce their own spiritual and physical nourishment.  While we are on a quest to fulfill missions we weren’t called to our children are being sacrificed to the wolves.  Confused about who they are and about who they are supposed to be.

Scripture reveals distinctions, distinctions among women and men, and between the Father and the son, and the roles we serve in the family, community, government, and world.  He also gives us examples of those who forfeited the victory for not appreciating it. (Jdgs 4:9) Those of us familiar with the one woman who was a judge in scripture.  When she does that which was the responsibility of the King in leadership she makes it clear that her involvement would come at a personal blow to him.  Because just as a woman takes on the identity of her husband, in a war a victory is given in the name of the one who conquers.  Deborah understood what this meant and though she accepted the position that was being given to her, she didn’t grasp for it.  YHVH can use man or woman to achieve His goal, as we have seen He can use a donkey too, none of God’s creation is off limits as it relates to him fulfilling His will, but it does come at a personal loss to the one to whom the responsibility was given.

There is a distinction in God, there is a distinction in God’s creation, a people who don’t understand that will inevitably self destruct.  So what can we do?  Women, celebrate who you were created to be in Christ.  Society doesn’t have to value you for you to be valuable.  A society that doesn’t value wisdom, will soon experience the error of that decision.  Because to oppose wisdom leads to folly as proverbs reveal.  Indeed we are valuable, we are compared to wisdom, when proverbs speaks of wisdom it speaks of her and she.  Our boys learn to be men, as mom’s appreciate being women.  As we become comfortable in being who we are they learn to be comfortable in being who they are, and as we do so we will see them rise to the occasion of being the warriors, protectors, providers, and the conquerors they are destined to become.

Getting closer to the finish line on this book.  Too many of us are losing wars against the enemy of our soul because we don’t understand the war that is being waged.  We don’t understand the strategy that he is using to fight us.  As in this weeks teaching we see that the serpent was more “subtil” than any beast of the field. (Gen. 3:1)  Many wars in home isn’t sparked by blows to the fist, that is the reaction.  It starts with what thoughts we keep.  Notice, I didn’t say what thoughts you think, but the ones you keep.  Adam and Eve was given every tool they needed to cast down the thought the enemy gave.  But they didn’t.  Many of us are losing the war today for the same reason.  In this book you will learn how to use the wisdom of the serpent in achieving victory in your life.  You will be able to defeat the enemy with his own artillery, and learn how to apply the wisdom of the word of God in the practical way he presents it.  We can understand the invisible things of God by the things which he has made.  (Rom. 1:20)  It’s time we take him at his word.

 

Equality In God

The very thing that makes them one makes them equal. They have the same agenda, no different plan. While it is the Father’s agenda that the son has come to do, they are together on one accord on that agenda.

Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: Php 2:6

So after reading this scripture the question for us would be, how do we achieve this equality that Yahushah had with His Father? The book of Philippians doesn’t leave us with out an answer. In fact the scriptures before it clearly indicate how we as believers can achieve such equality in God.

Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Php 2:2-5.

So according to the text the components necessary for achieving equality include:

  1. Being like-minded
  2. Having the same love
  3. Being on One Accord
  4. Of One mind

Those are the things we are to have to achieve equality, but this text also lists something’s we have to put aside.

  1. Nothing be done through strife or vainglory
  2. In lowliness of mind esteem other better than self
  3. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others

Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Joh 14:10.

John 14:10 challenges us also in this vain, because it requires us to ask the question of ourselves, who’s doing the works in us? Is it us doing the works or is it Christ? We know that the Father doing the works in Christ produced fruit. Are we producing the fruit from above or strange fruit? Are we bringing life to the living or death? Just as the Father doesn’t do the will of the Son, we cannot expect the Son to do our will, but rather we are called to do His will.

So the question is how do we know if we are doing the will of God?

If we don’t know the word of God we know for sure we are not doing his will. The will of God is revealed, walked out, and reflected in His word.

The question that may be asked is what about those who receive the Gospel from hearing it but haven’t read the scriptures themselves. How can they be doing the will of God?

Notice I didn’t say you must read the word I said you must know the word. Knowing the word of God can be achieved through reading, and studying, but it can also be achieved through a personal relationship. Which is why the Word of God is described as being alive.

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Heb 4:12

Throughout scripture we see hearts were pricked not just at the reading of the word but in most cases at the hearing of the word. One can read the word from cover to cover yet not hear what it has to say. A great example of this is in the book of proverbs, when we see wisdom is personified in the text as a woman. (Prov. 1:20) She is one who cries out, but not all who is within ear shot of her receives her. Yahushah and Isaiah connects that for us in their response “he that hath an ear to hear” and Isaiah informing us before Yahushah comes that there will be those who hearing shall not hear. (Rev. 2:7; Rev. 2:17; Isa. 6:9)

Thus our problem with achieving equality with God will not be a lack of physical reading or physical hearing, but will be a lack of a heart to hear, whether we are reading or hearing. One of my favorite scriptures to pray concerning myself in my private time with God is Psalms 51:10. Because the bottom line is there are things that are going to happen to you in life that will make your heart dirty and dull your ability to hear the spirit of God in you. This scripture reminds me that I can’t create a clean heart in myself, but I must depend on Him to create one within me. I can’t renew my own right Spirit, but must depend on Him to renew a right Spirit within me. It is a declaration of me submitting myself to Him and depending on Him to create and renew what I cannot.
