Keep your eye on the prize. Know that the race is not given to the swift, nor is it given to the strong but to those who endure [hold on, hang in there, who do not give up and do not faint]. until the end.
“I again saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the mighty, nor even bread to the wise, nor even riches to men of understanding, nor even favour to men of knowledge – for time and chance meets with them all“. (Ecclesiastes 9:11).
So what that says today is that all have the same start, but unfortunately not all hang in there.
Today: Are you the one? Today are you the one who will hold on to the finish. It is well today, believe it.
For your hearing:
(1 Corinthians 15:58) Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the work of the Master, knowing that your labour is not in vain in the Master.
The scriptures say that the believers are to judge within the body. What that means is if we see someone in a sin [sexual or otherwise] then we are to be confronted or to confront on that thing. The scripture says to convict them.
In other words, you have heard of an intervention? This is it.
“And if your brother sins against you, go and reprove him, between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. “But if he does not hear, take with you one or two more, that ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word might be established.’ “And if he refuses to hear them, say it to the assembly. And if he refuses even to hear the assembly, let him be to you like a gentile and a tax collector. “Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be having been bound in heaven, and whatever you loosen on earth shall be having been loosened in heaven”. (Matthew 18:15-18).
As we can see there is no binding up if the leaders are urging the folly.The judging comes in as an excuse to keep on with it, however, the scripture is clear on that as well saying:
“But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone called ‘a brother,’ if he is one who whores, or greedy of gain, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler – not even to eat with such a one. For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Do you not judge those who are inside? But Elohim judges those who are outside. And put away the wicked one from among you! (1 Corinthians 5:11-13).
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.
For your hearing:
I 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).
While we are here let’s talk about that. Remember the story about the man who lived his life any kinda of way [Luke 16:19-31]. Apparently he did what he wanted to do with no regard of the poor at all. As a matter of fact, that man being rich passed by a poor man who sat at the gate begging each day and never gave a penny so the man could eat. One day the beggar died and so did the rich man, however, the two ended in very different places because of how they lived.
It came to pass that the beggar walked himself to the bosom of Abraham; while the rich man walked himself to hell, and suffering his plight asked for a cool finger to cool his tongue.
Abraham responded to the request saying, ‘“But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that in your life you received your good, and likewise Elʽazar the evil, but now he is comforted and you are suffering.”
Continuing the rich man asked that word be sent to warn his brethren, however, Abraham said:
‘They have Mosheh and the prophets, let them hear them.’ If they do not hear Mosheh and the prophets, neither would they be persuaded even if one should rise from the dead.’ ”
Ladies and Gentlemen, there is no other word to redeem us to the Most High.
He that hath an ear to hear will hear.
Here 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?
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.
Some of you men are under the sad impression that you can oppress women and they still be able to pour into you. Instead of polishing their crown men are casting women off to the shelf to collect dust and still expecting praise. Well, sir King it doesn’t work like that, because if you want praise you will have to give it. Women cannot pour out what they have not been filled with. Hence, if a woman is filled with criticism from you then you have criticism given back.
Scripture says, “A capable wife is the crown of her husband, But one causing shame is like rottenness in his bones.” (Proverbs 12:4).
In this one can see that if someone’s crown is neglected, jewels falling out and otherwise without luster then there isn’t much shine coming from that for any cause.
In essence, “A shameful state of existence” for you both, because remember she is pulled out from you man of Yah. Hence, how much work are you putting into your crown?
For your hearing:
Ever notice how some men describe their woman as “The air I breathe?” You hear that in songs. I was slightly suspicious of God at one time thinking he was chauvinist, because it doesn’t seem fair, or rather didn’t seem fair some of the things women have to endure from men. However, with new found revelation and new found hope we can press forth in faith that Yah will accomplish that he started.
The Spirit of the Most High Yah or better known as Holy Spirit. However, in Hebrew Ru-awk [Ruach], a feminine persona contrary to popular thoughts of male.
“…And the Ruach of Elohim was moving [to hover, to wait near at hand] on the face of the waters.” (Genesis 1:2).
Let’s go there to the fact that the Ruach[breathe of Elohim] hovers, that is, she waits close by shall we? Notice then how the Ruach and Yah are two persona that work simultaneously. Male and female.
Yah speaks and then the Ruach acts in accordance to that word. Hence, “Let Us make man in our image (Genesis 1:26). and then later the woman pulled out of the man. Let Us make a suitable Helper ( Genesis 2:18). Yah [maculine] and Ruach [feminine]. Hence, male and female in the character, or rather persona of the Most High. His man and (his) help meet.
Hence, the Helper [Noun], or rather a comforting spirit.
“And I shall ask the Father, and He shall give you another Helper, to stay with you forever – the Spirit of the Truth, whom the world is unable to receive, because it does not see Him or know Him. But you know Him, for He stays with you and shall be in you. (John 14:16-17).
So this is how the woman gets her character, hence being a helper, nurturer, teacher. Feed her and she feeds a nation. Man and Woman of Yah.

2 Samuel 6:2
Strong’s H7307 – ruwach [the breath of God]
In 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.
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.
