Deliverance has a new look.
Let’s talk today about how difficult it might be for us to keep our bearing. Scripture speaks of the Way in terms of struggle and pain during the walk. Hence, there is misconception brought about by those who deliver these messages of prosperities which has deceived us to the point that we do not look any place to find Yah, except in our wallets.
Then we should ask then what if our wallets are empty? Or what if our houses are substandard? What if we don’t own a car, or the car is in disrepair? What then are we to do with ourselves if the Way is prosperity which everyone seeks, then, where does that leave many of us who love the Most High?
Think again and consider what that means.
If people continue to take in the lie, then we begin to see this is the very reason why trust has been lost. Many people have lost trust in the Most High, because no matter how they try there is still trouble, hopelessness, and struggle. Hence, what we need to do is look elsewhere, because the Way is hard pressed and not easy as in prosperity teaches.
“Enter in through the narrow gate! Because the gate is wide – and the way is broad – that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter in through it. “Because the gate is narrow and the way is hard pressed [or the way is afflicted] which leads to life, and there are few who find it” (Matthew 7:13-14).
Today: Press through the lies and hypocrisy of erroneous teaching and know that your answer is in the search of Truth in the Most High who says He will be found when we search with our whole [entire] heart. What that means is that He is not in our wallets as is the thing in the broad road to destruction.

So you believe that since you stopped cheating on him or her that thing is over? Well the affair might be over, but the saga of the infidelity and the unfaithfulness lives on. It is not the case that a person likes to dwell on a thing, however, what one must know is that once trust is broken its difficult to give that again. Hence, an issue of broken trust is far reaching. In fact, people can not trust the person as far as they can see [See: 10 Signs You’re Having An Emotional Affair].
If it is a matter of an emotional affair, then, it might have been better for you had you went through with the actual act.
Scripture says, “If a man even looks at a woman with lust in his heart he has committed [the act of] adultery already”.
Take heed, because in this view people have lost trust and in some instances not able to find that again.

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.
“And He said, “Let Me go, for the day breaks.” But he said, “I am not letting You go until You have blessed me!” So He asked him, “What is your name?” And he said, “Yaʽaqoḇ.” And He said, “Your name is no longer called Yaʽaqoḇ, but Yisra’ĕl, because you have striven with Elohim and with men, and have overcome.” [Yisra’ĕl means “to strive with Ěl, to overcome with Ěl, (then) to rule with Ěl” ]. And Yaʽaqoḇ asked Him, saying, “Please let me know Your Name.” And He said, “Why do you ask about My Name?” And He blessed him there. And Yaʽaqoḇ called the name of the place Peni’ĕl, “For I have seen Elohim face to face, and my life is preserved.” (Genesis 32:26-30).
If we can imagine what it would be like to actually wrestle with the Most High as Jacob did then we must consider that we must do the same as he did, that is, to actually wrestle with Him. However, to do that we must be a contender in the work for the Most High. In actuality, what this says is that Jacob was not a quitter, not a ‘wanna be’. Hence, it is the case that when we wrestle with something we desire to contend, or we are bent on having that thing no matter the cost. Jacob was determined to contend. How do we know this? We know because when the Messenger said, “Let me go”, Jacob did not, essentially, getting his request to be blessed. How many are able to hang in there and wrestle with the Most High even with your hip out of joint?
What that means sir, ma’am is that there is going to be pain to get the blessing. We are going to have to go through something to be a contender for the blessing.
Some of us expect ease, comfort, a good time. I can imagine that those of us who lack wealth or even having a minimal amount of money can relate to uncomfortable conditions. Some of us wonder from time to time how ends will meet because of lack. Its never easy for some of us who hang in there dispite the situation, but there are those who quit, who give up or are about to, then, this message is for you who are thinking about throwing in towel and if you have put the towel down already pick it back up, because it is not too late to be a contender.
Longsuffering has its priviledges. Ladies and Gentlemen, when we contend with something is not to tolerate only but to wrestle with it, because that thing may bring you face to face with the Most High. That means to struggle, to move, to deal with it. Whatever it is.
Today: Anybody got some ‘ITS’ to deal with? Hang in there. It just may be God.

Genesis 32:24; Ephesians 6:12
I like the birth of the Messiah story, don’t you? Hence, we see that Mariam being very pregnant; her and her espoused had to change direction, that is take another course because their enemy was out to kill. Yep, and how many know that the couple turned into Egypt to hide (Matthew 2). Hence, what we see is a couple led by the Ruach run to safety among white people?
No, black people cannot run into the arms of their enemy if they want to be saved. Its deceptive to believe that anyone is safe in the land of oppression [as we will see later], however, what we need to see right now is that Egypt was safe then because of the color of the people’s skin. So how do we get this across amidst images of white in a black land?
So the movies portray this, however, how is it no one gets the idea of those people being sunburned along with that? It is the case, that it humanly impossible for albinoes to remain in temperatures that can be well over 104 degrees in the summer.
Ask: If these people cannot stand the heat in America which in some places is extreme how could they stand it then or today? How can that be?
In any case, the premise here is the time of year reflected today for the birth is impossible as well when even in the winter in Egypt temperatures can plummet to well below 32 degrees so what we are saying here is that according to today’s standard that our Messiah was subjugated to neglect?
In other words, to cement the idea of a white baby the winter birth suffices for those asleep.
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).
Here 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).
The same thing here:
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.

“Rest in יהוה, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man doing wicked devices. Abstain from displeasure, and forsake wrath; Do not fret, also to do evil. For evil-doers are cut off; But those who wait on יהוה, They shall inherit the earth”. (Psalms 37:7-9).
We do not want to hear that. What we do not want to hear is wait patiently, nor, do we want to rest. Well this type of rest has nothing to do with laying down and taking stuff, however, what it does have to do with is taking matters into our own hands. How do we know? We look at the term displeasure and note that the tendency towards that has been stirred by emotion by what we see.
One translation says anger, that is be angry and sin not, but lets look at displeasure and see where that leads us.
Most of the time we look past ourselves in matters such as ‘forsaking wrath’, and if we use the term anger we can’t look at ourselves even though we are the ones angry. In anger we say of the other party, “You did this or that!” Or we say, “You make me!” Well today I say that no one has that much power to make anyone do anything. Hence, if we do “it” we do so unto our own selves.
So when the scripture says to forsake wrath, then this is not for them it is for us. Have we forsaken wrath in our (((own))) displeasure?
See it like this? When we are displeased with something do we:
1. Sacrifice to idols
2. Make idols
3.Bear false witness,
6. Commit adultery
7. Covet anything that is our neighbors
8. Dishonor parents [with how you live?]
In that, we have new found insight into what is displeasing to the Most High. Hence, this view tells us that it truly not about them, but all about dealing with our emotions concerning them.
Have your way Yah. Psa 31:3 For You are my rock and my stronghold; For Your Name’s sake lead me and guide me.
We 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.
