Count it All Joy and Persevere until You Overcome


bible-hebrewsThere again, scripture says “Count it all joy” when you fall into divers [various] trials because there is ‘Proving of your belief” working in you to generate perseverance.
Every where people profess the name of Jesus. There is nothing new about that, because history proclaims that the Hebrews throughout the centuries have been beaten into submission concerning Christianity, especially in slavery where their owners used the bible to dole out lashes if someone disobeyed them. It is the case, that the name has stuck both spiritually and mentally through the ages.

If this is the case, then it would behoove us to see that the ‘proving’ these verses speak of is not Jesus, Christianity or anything else but True belief of the Most High. In essence, those who believed in Yahuah first, and those who are called back to His name.

The proving of your belief then brings about trials of various types. In other words, one should ask how can one be saved from something where everyone is saved? Hence, if Christianity says all are saved, then this is contrary to what the scriptures proposes, that is, someone needs saving and it is in a name unknown to us today. Why? Several reasons present themselves, (a) We forgot, (b) someone intentionally left it out, and (c) the name was changed. We can now began to see that trials might come for choosing to believe other than we were taught spiritually and mentally.

For example, through belief, that is heart and mind acceptance of evidence presented does not necessarily mean actions in behavior present themselves all at once, however, there has been confession of belief other than what we have been taught.

“But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” – that is, the word of belief which we are proclaiming: that if you confess with your mouth the Master יהושע and believe in your heart that Elohim has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, and so is saved.” (Romans 10:8-10).

Additionally, with this confession come trials to get us to deny the belief we have confessed in truth. Look at Job how when various trials came upon him all who knew him, even his wife said that either he had done something to bring that on [sinful behavior] and that he should curse the Most High. Hence, the same can be applied to your belief, that is intentional sin reigns, or for this occasion the testing of your belief.

Essentially, either we do or we do not. Those who do persevere, because the testing is bringing about as James said, “endurance”.

Endurance entails that something greater is coming about. Hence,the question becomes who shall overcome it? Ask for wisdom.

Escape or Excuse?


download (2)It is a bunch of crock and bull to use the excuse ‘its a spirit’ concerning homosexuality, or rather, all sin for that matter. Well yeah, duhhh it is a spirit, but if we have authority to case out demons in the Name because these people are carrying a wicked spirit then why aren’t people able to cast those out?

In essence, we yell its a spirit, because we do not know what to do. Its like giving up, helpless, without hope and walking away.

Hence, here comes another excuse because people cannot get help which says they are born that way. Bull corn, fooey and boloney! No! Yah said male and female. So if someone is saying different that means they are lying to them self. A lie has to be thought of, convincing self to belief and then acted out. Then someone none discerning believes the lie too wanting to be well like, wanting to be a good parent, friend, not wanting to offend. People are tricked to unbelief. Because there is always a way out. Yah said it, he provides an escape (1 Corinthians 10:13), but we don’t want escape we want excuse (Romans 1).

Come on now let us reason. Better yet, let us look at the fact that anyonThe Most High said that people are without excuse (Romans 1).e needs help. There is a problem that has over powered the so called church, and its not cause people are not praying, it is because they are praying in the wrong Name.

The Most High Comforts where it Hurts


65954_896879876991310_6976952092739595466_nI had no idea Lady GaGa was so pretty. She is a beautiful woman and speaking of her rape at 19 years old, and a subsequent video about the event she says, “I was messed up!” Notably, the star says that she was not so messed up when the event took place, but decidedly pronounces that years later did notice her plight. She spoke about not telling anyone, and even a time when she saw her attacker in the store where she shopped she says though afraid she never told. In essence, it is that way until we own up to the truth, that is it happened and learn to deal with the pain.

In saying that we learn to tell with the pain, Lady GaGa doesn’t see herself as messed up but her outer appearance is a matter of deviance to cover up something, and says something altogether different.

In essence some of us are all covering something, that is, hurtfulness never dealt with. Hence, we do outlandish things to draw attention away…lest any one know our secret. No matter, Yah knows our hurt and he cares.

Today: Cast it away!

For your hearing:
Cast your burden on יהוה, And let Him sustain you; He never allows the righteous to be shaken. For You, O Elohim, do bring them down To the pit of destruction; Men of blood and deceit do not reach half their days; But I, I trust in You. (Psalms 55:22,23).

Did the Most High Create Evil?


Hurricane-katrina-lootingHere are some terms which without doubt are causing confusion concerning Isaiah 45:7 which reads, “Forming light and creating darkness, making peace and creating evil. I, יהוה, do all these.’ [Read the entire text to understand better].

For this analysis we are concentrating on Yah saying through the prophet Isaiah that he creates evil, because it is here that people are being confused and yelling that Yahuah doesn’t create evil the devil does. Well, true, the devil does create evil situations through people, but in and of himself cannot create evil. Hence, if Yahuah created Satan and Satan is evil then Yahuah created evil. Does that make sense?

See then, that Yahuah created man in his image, right? However, because of sin man is made evil then if Yahuah created man, and sin is evil, then, Yahuah created evil also, because if that were not the case then there would be no evil. Then we see [too] the fact that evil and good is in the plan of free will. Hence, without evil to choose as an alternative then there is not a thought process, because people tend to choose from the choices available to them. Hence, the scripture “Choose life, choose this day who you will serve”.

Here are a choice of words that may deflect truth.

calamity —an event causing great and often sudden damage or distress; a disaster.

A disaster can be a natural event, or even a trial for some people, however, one cannot say that the disaster is evil though people might be killed, injured or displaced. What a calamity does is create a situation allowed by the Most High to get our attention so that we can call him. In essence, calamities happen but are not necessarily evil.

In fact, scripture tells us do not fear, ” Do not be afraid of sudden dread, Nor of the ruin of the wrong when it comes; For יהוה is at your side, And He shall guard your foot from being caught.” (Proverbs 3:25-26).

hurricane-katrina-2

The same thing here:

disaster
a sudden event, such as an accident or a natural catastrophe, that causes great damage or loss of life.

Hence, the use of terminology is misleading the flock. For example, there was a calamity created during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina when people resorted to looting in their time of distress. These then, are conditions of immoral character which is evil brought on my a natural disaster, that is killing, stealing, and even rape occurring, however, the event [the natural disaster] itself was not evil.

What is evil? To be evil says that people are profoundly immoral and malevolent.

 

The term malevolent here is important. Malevolent means that a person(s) is intentionally bring harm to people which was the case when after the flood in Louisiana, there was no immediate help though officials were promising that help would arrive, people had no humane facilities, no food, no water and no rescue for days. Hence, evil in the face of a disaster.

The problem here then is knowing which is which.

An AHA Moment


light-bulb-moment1stHere is why we should pay close attention to these terms. In an earlier post the lesson brought that we should not fight with temptation but expose it. Hence, to do that we are going to do a dissection.

Here is the scripture Matthew 4:1 which reads:
Then יהושע was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tried by the devil.

We want to concentrate on the devil here, not that Yahusha was tempted, because we know that he is victorious. However, the fact that we are not is a force to reckon.

Remember I said that we need to learn to use Satan’s name. I know we don’t like to say it I agree, because I am having a hard time writing it, but we cannot resist the opponent with our eyes closed. So wake up!

Satan, is a noun [masculine] according to Hebrew translation means an adversary, or the adversary and the one who opposes himself to another.

In the general sense, Satan also is a personal entity or a national one which makes sense since the scripture says he roams to and fro. The adversary makes war (1 Kings 5:18; 11:14,23, 25) and he is an enemy in the court of justice (Psalms 109:6), and also opposes himself to another (2 Samuel 19:23; Numbers 22:22, and it says, “the angel of Yahovah stood in the way to resist Him” [v. 32].

The devil, or rather, for this verse ‘the devil’ is not speaking of a person, place or thing as represented with a name but is speaking of the entity’s character, according to the Greek translation of diabolos [diabolical] which means the character of Satan is diabolical. The term is an adjective which means when we say ‘the devil’ we are describing something devilish, or rather, in this case according to the greek diabolical. Does that make sense?

Let’s see some more:

Satan is prone to slander , a slanderer
Satan is an a calumniator, false accuser,
Metaphorically, Satan, applied to a man who, by opposing the cause of God, may be said to act the part of the devil or to side with him

Satan is a diabolical liar, schemer, trickster, conster, manipulator and his behavior is devilish. However, how can we resist someone we cannot think to call by name?

Same thing:

Submit your will to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you.

Submit your will to Yah, resist Satan and he will flee you.

BROKEN UP


brokenIn church, the topic of taking authority is a common conversation, however, there is never any instruction given. Therefore, today I will share my view of what taking authority means for marriages as it pertains to women marrying and allowing the man to move in.

It is the case, that throughout text when the Hebrews would need to take land that the men handled that cause. Hence what we see are men gathering together to make plans, sending in spies to scope out the scene and take word back to the camp. Under no circumstance common to victory did the men act without seeking Yah, and neither did they send women to do what they needed. Once the way was cleared they moved in for attack and killed all the men of those attacked. Why did they kill the men? It is because of the fact that men cannot dwell with another authoritative figure. In essence, two people in the same house, different cultures, different views and so on spells trouble and symbolically this would be mixing seed; such as is seen in raising a household under another mans authority.

“When you go out to fight against your enemies, and יהוה your Elohim shall give them into your hand, and you shall take them captive, and shall see among the captives a woman fair of form, and shall delight in her and take her for your wife, then you shall bring her home to your house, and she shall shave her head and trim her nails, and put aside the mantle of her captivity, and shall dwell in your house, and mourn her father and her mother a month of days. And after that you shall go in to her and be her husband, and she shall be your wife.” (Deuteronomy 21:10-13).

One thing in particular to mention is that today we look at our daughters 11-16 as not being ripe for marriage, however, this is not the general idea that Yah designed where we see the onset of puberty belies marriage material for some [thats another story]. More importantly, in this text get a general idea of a man taking a wife where he literally takes her from her mother and father with no introduction, no warning and then takes her to his house shaves her head and trims her nails, allows her to mourn and then goes into her and makes her his wife. Why does he do all that? Symbolically a womans hair is her covering and shows her to be in authority to someone. Hence, if the woman is in authority to her father then the hair must be shaved to come into covenant under another. Its true, see it like this if a man takes a wife and she has no covering then there is no need for that. It is the case, that scripture denotes that a womans hair is a covering unto her head, or rather her husband. (1 Corinthians 11:6). Hence, if one has not hair then a wrap is sufficient as a covering.
broken 1
Let’s go deeper. A woman who is not a maiden like the one above, or who has had sex before is married to the man she had sex with [one flesh]. It is the case, this is confirmed when there are children from the union. Hence, the matter here is not the marriage but who the marriage is with. Let us say, then, that today’s marriages are not Yah’s way, that is, without convenant but with government consent. Hence, the marriage is illegal by Hebrew law. One of the reasons the government assisted marriage is illegal is that it allows for divorce. Hence, men and women; especially Hebrew are filling the courts divorcing for reasons other than adultery [whoring] and its the women who are divorcing when the man is the only one that can put the woman away. What does that mean? It means that people are being married illegally and most time other men move in with a woman who has their houses already established. Sex is an act of marriage…woman you are not divorced unless your husband has put you away.

The reason for the divorce certificate in the first place, according to Messiah is because men were abandoning their wives. How many feel deserted and are abandoned left alone with the children? Sometimes its not our faults, however, sometimes we must agree that he found out somethings about us and left..the putting away because of whoring (Matthew 5:32; Jeremiah 3:8), and is a sound reason for divorce, according to scripture. So…we married again being ignorant of what divorce is and the man has taken over another mans wife…it is adultery. “But I say to you that whoever puts away his wife, except for the matter of whoring, makes her commit adultery. And whoever marries a woman who has been put away commits adultery.” (Matthew 5:32).

This very fact of being under another’s authority is causing problems with the new relationship. Women left alone, especially with children are still attached to another spiritually. This is the reason for the so called ‘Baby Mama and Daddy Drama’, because he has the right and she may or might not want him to have it, or either, he has authority and does not want it and she wants him to take it. “For the eyes of יהוה diligently search throughout all the earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is perfect to Him. You have acted foolishly in this, so from now on you shall have battles.” (2 Chronicles 16:9).

Prayerfully, we can now repent and move on from this type thinking. Pray about that. Yah loves you beloved, and wishes no one to suffer.

Be encouraged.

Do Not Worry and Do Not Fret!


worryThe Most High has prepared for our mindset of being accepted and of our tendency to worry about having what we need, or to worry about what another person has. Seems like many of us worry to much about what we will wear and how we will look, where we will live or even how we will do these things, but He says do not worry. That is a great thing to have a word to turn to, however, we have to be in a mind still to accept that word of encouragement “Do not”, and most importantly “Do not fret” because we see evil doers prospering.

I don’t chase down money. I need it, even may need a job, but I don’t beg for or covet people’s stuff. People might believe that everyone has that spirit of wanting their stuff, being envious and jealous but I am not that way. If you have whatever you have that is good for you. However, some of you I see that you are probably tired and worn out because of trying to keep up. I don’t have a competitive spirit. Hence, if I write, work or play I do it unto Yah, because he is bigger than you and me and he owns it, that is, everything. Therefore, I am not without anything and if I lose anything it is because the time has been spent with that.

He says, “You cannot be a slave of two masters; you will hate one and love the other; you will be loyal to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. “This is why I tell you: do not be worried about the food and drink you need in order to stay alive, or about clothes for your body. After all, isn’t life worth more than food? And isn’t the body worth more than clothes?” (Matthew 6:24-25).

Particularly note, the use of the term slave. Here we see that black people cringe at this term. However, it is used quite often in text to denote bondage to something, enslaved to a system. Hence, people can become slaves to anything without even knowing, that is to money, sex, dependency on other people, as in human trafficking, food, clothes, lustful passions such as being angry. Yes, we can become addicted to being angry to the point of killing another for what they have. Does that make sense? Then start today to change that thinking.

Today: Say I will not worry about what I do not have, for Yahuah has created a place for me. I will not fret about tomorrow and concentrate on what is before me today to get done. Today I have victory, because it is Yah’s plan and its a good one.

The Reign of Heaven on Earth


the kingdom of heavenThe reign of heaven is not what we think.

We should look deeply at this this term reign because Yahshua says he is giving us the reign of heaven and we shouldn’t be so quick to think money and wealth so quickly. If Yah says, “Do not worry,” and “I will supply your needs” this brings to light that someone is not living a glam filled life.

So listen, to have the reign of heaven on earth is what this means {Matthew 7].

To reign on earth one has to have thinking of predominance, or rather to hold the position and name of sovereign with out exercising the ruling power. In other words, to reign on earth we enjoy the privileges of a heavenly lifestyle until its time to take our place again as royal priests. That means, control over our thoughts, our lifestyles as chosen, beloved and graced of Yah. Does that make sense?

Look at this:

Mat 13:44 “Again, the reign of the heavens is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man having found it, hid, and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.
Mat 13:45 “Again, the reign of the heavens is like a man, a merchant, seeking fine pearls,
Mat 13:46 who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

So then we are finding truth of identity and giving up ungodliness for righteousness or right thinking to live set apart.

You have heard sold out, or you have heard do not cast your pearls to the swine, then this is it? The reign of heaven on earth.

Few there are who find it. The narrow gate.

Good Deeds


proverbs 16_3We may never know the effect our living a righteous life before men has had. The help we gave someone, or that encouraging word, but we can be sure that what we do in private; that is, in secret has gotten God’s attention.
Look at this:
“Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. “Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. “And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.” (Matthew 6:1-6)
I was thinking about this because its great to want praise reports from people we have kept lifted, also good to hear that prayers are answered; but what is it about when we see people inquiring and bragging about who they prayed for, what they did an when for Sis Lucy and Bro. Joe? Broadcasting that they bought them something to eat…certainly not because the family needed help but because of their need of recognition and attention. God says that we should keep it quiet when we share…giving in private. People doing stuff and spreading what they did over the neighborhood…so what if Sis. Lilly is wearing the suit you gave her last week; should everyone know it was you?
Today: Do it as unto the Most High and not unto men for Yah sees.

Count those Trials as Joy!


“My brothers, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the proving of your belief works endurance. And let endurance have a perfect work, so that you be perfect and complete, lacking in naught.” (James 1:2-4). 

James_1_2_3So let’s talk about the ‘fall’ into various trials. Suppose we are looking for work and a friend, a neighbor, whomever says “I know a place that is hiring right now!” “They pay such and such”. You say give me the information, and because of your need seek out to find more details of the job, fill out the application and arrange for an interview. [Time elapsed], and once in, though excited about the chance to work start to notice somethings are just not right. Not only that, once you present your findings to management from then on you are on a black list of sorts. Everyday getting up to go to work is a burden, its painful and you are filled with despair. The good thing about the experience is that Yah has allowed the trial to test you. Not for your goodness you see, but to see if you will remain faithful and not give in to oppressive tactics. 

Ladies and gentlemen, it is never about us, but about Yah in us. If there is an attack they are attacking Yah’s Spirit. Be glad, because James says that the outcome is that we will lack nothing. 

Today: Feel better about it. You’re growing. 

For your hearing:
