Ahh–There it is! Are You Sleeping?
“And have no fellowship with the fruitless works of darkness, but rather convict them. For it is a shame even to speak of what is done by them in secret. But all matters being convicted, are manifested [made known] by the light, That He says, ‘Wake up, you who sleep, and arise from the dead, and Messiah shall shine on you.’ See then that you walk exactly, not as unwise, but wise, redeeming the time, because the days are wicked. So then do not be foolish, but understand what the desire of Yahuah is. [Eph’siyim (Ephesians) 5:11-17].
In a court of law is where people are tried for their crimes, supposedly, by a jury of their peers. However, witnesses are put on the stand in offense, defense, and character. In this thing we find that some people bear false witness swearing that it is truth. More specifically, even witness testimony has been found to be perjurious in some instance–unreliable. Consequently, these are they who sway a jury to make render a verdict, that is guilty or not guilty. It is by the testimony and the evidence thereof.
It is also the case, that evidence can cause a conviction, that is are your finger prints all over the place, are you caught on tape, or did they see your face? Today know that the Most High sees and does not slumber. For this lesson, we will see that the word convicts and we must change whatever that means for us, or be sentenced to death. For it is by grace [unto repentance] that we are saved.
Someone accused me of being critical and I say today that it is not critical if proof of the wrong is made known, that is, factual evidence that supports the word of the Book. Then who can argue that wrong is shown up. For example, if someone posts a picture of idols. It is the case that because I bring truth of what an idol is, such as crosses, and other trinkets we hold dear. It is the case, that then the word have convicted [through me] because Yahuah will not come to earth and whip us into correction himself he does that through the book. I am the one who brought that to your attention perhaps, but the truth is truth no matter who believes it Yah is calling us to repent.
My sister and I were sharing the other week and speaking of idols and she told me that she found out that these also include anything that Yahuah created, that is birds of the air, fish in the sea to animals such as bears. I love bears and have a few of those, ceramic and she says anything that resembles a created thing. Thanks sis Audrey Graham. So am I offended and believe her to be critical? No, I find that she is correct and with that it is up to me whether or not if I get rid myself of the bears.
That brings to mind this verse:
“You do not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of that which is in the heavens above, or which is in the earth beneath, or which is in the waters under the earth, you do not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, יהוה your Elohim am a jealous Ěl, visiting the crookedness of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing kindness to thousands, to those who love Me and guard My commands.” (Exodus 20:4-6).
Hence, people are without excuse. In other words. who can argue, or rather, who finds it critical? Then, I suggest that we read the Book. There is a word of everything if we care to know it. It’s in the Book.
So then we have been misled about this. Is it worth it, then, to keep on with it when Yah says not to?
For your hearing:
