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.
The 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.
For your hearing:
“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.
For your hearing:
Christianity has dealt us a dirty hand in that we do not know that though we are redeemed to Yah through Messiah that we have to receive that He is Yahushua Ha’Mashiach. Now many will claim, have claimed that there is reception in this, however, there is not if we have not truth his name is not Jesus, but the Name above all Names and that the world does not know Him as [Yahushua]. Why? Because that name is wiped out of the minds and hearts of the Yehudim and the world by wicked men. [Intentionally]. (Isaiah 1:3).
John 3:16, we love to claim this scripture. Yahuah so loved the world, but this does not make sense when the Messiah says also that he came of the lost sheep [Yehudim] of Israel. Hence, it does not make sense, (a) that Yah would change his mind, and that (b) he would save everyone. Therefore there is error in how this is preached.
Let us look at this with a magnifying eye. The redemption though already done [at the impalement] is conditional and contingent upon ones belief and that belief is in the name. How do we know?
1. All who call on the name of Yahusha Ha’Mashiach shall be saved. (Romans 1:13).
2. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Yahusha is Messiah to the glory of the Father(Romans 14:11; Philippians 2:8-11).
How can there be glory to the Father when the introduction to the Father is through the Son whose name we do not know? (1 Timothy 2:5)
Are we there yet?
This is not a literal bowing as at the alter of the idol, but a bowing of heart and mind to truth, giving succession that He rules, He reigns as the Son of the Most High El. He is Elohim in the flesh.
Now the difference is that we have not the Name to call, and if we have not [did not know] the name how can we call Him?
John 3:16, is conditional on belief, and one cannot believe unto righteousness unless we have the name right.
No other Name.
For your hearing:
Acts 17;9; 17:31
Watch: The Black History Deception
“Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages, [That] at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up: And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.” (Daniel 3:4-6).
We already know what time it is and it is time out for these excuses to continue on in idol worship. Let’s face the music shall we. America is full of idols, everywhere we look is a statue of some sort going up in memorial of something or someone. Here in Texas, the famous State Fair idol ‘Big Tex’ burned to the ground because of some electrical short. However, instead of allowing by-gones to stay gone…they built another one; a new and improved one. In downtown Fort Worth, a larger than life statue is placed in memorial of John F. Kennedy for no other reason than ‘he stopped by’ on the way to Dallas to be killed. These are just a few examples of an idolized city; so, let us imagine the nation as a whole in this.
But what does the word say…” Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.” (Exodus 20:3-4).
Now one could argue that the images mentioned are not worship; however, the word says “make anything” hence we have erred in this and most probably because the commandments have been tossed out.
See this clearly:
1) Graven image
2) Or any likeness
3) In heaven above
4) Or in the earth beneath
5) Or in the water under the earth
So I ask, what in the world are have we done? Do we know? Someone is just doing their own thing at the expense of everyone else.
Look at this:
“Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height [was] threescore cubits, [and] the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon. Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the princes, the governors, and the captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.” (Daniel 3:1-2).
Everyone who is anyone was invited to the unveiling of the golden image, much like, the unveiling of the images aforementioned. Also, we see the unveiling and ribbon cuttings for other entities; like, our new mercantile, our new church which seats almost the entire city, our new homes. Is anyone getting this vision.
Is there one to say enough is enough?
For more on the saga of idol worship in your town see, Daniel 3 .
There is nothing new under the sun…unless you change it.

I say what makes someone think that when God hates idol worshipers? Moreover, I don’t know that “the world” is a correct translation seemingly if we think about it, that is, if someone was so bold as to change Yahuwah and Elohim to God lord and Lord and the the name Yahushuah to lord then what makes us think that “the world” did not replace Israel.
Hear the truth said, “And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.Then came she and worshiped him, saying, Lord, help me. But he answered and said, It is not right to take the children’s bread, and cast it to dogs.And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. Then Yahshuah answered and said unto her, O woman, great is your faith: be it unto you even as you will. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour. ” (Matthew 15:24).
We missed it, it is not about the woman and her child, except to say that by her faith her child was healed. There is no association needed there. Many people confuse this to mean that Yahshuah came for everyone. However, it is the case that he says that he “came for the lost sheep of Israel.”
This indicates that it is by grace that Israel is saved…we can wish for salvation, we can think salvation, we can play saved, look saved, act saved and all else but this message is clear that Yahuwah came to save Israel.
However, if you have faith as the woman did…you can be made whole TOO!
There is not another way….he is the narrow gate. More to the point. Israel is His chosen. That’s the message of hope for True Israel.
I still say that it is Israel who is saved by grace…for Yahuwah so loved Israel that he sent his son….
In 1 Corinthians Paul tells the church that they are responsible for “judging” the saints who are in fellowship with other believers and in short tells them that it is Yahuwah who judges the world…why would God send his Son for the world he is going to judge?
Take a look:
“Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints? Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren? But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers. Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded? Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren. Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? ” (1 Corinthians 6:1-11)
Stop right there! This is not about somebody suing you, look deeper.
Hence, we see here that Paul says that so called saints should not run to the “world system” to solve their problems when they can handle them amongst themselves. Why would Yahuwah then be concerned for “the world?” He does not love “the world” which is full of idolatry. If we look at it….it took Him sending Yahshuah to save us for him to even acknowledge us, Israel because we fell to idol worship. God doesn’t see us when we are not walking in righteousness, meaning honoring the covenant and the commandments. God sent his son for Israel whom he calls and still calls an ADULTEROUS NATION, NOT THE WORLD.
Judgement means he has turned his back and ready to administer punishment ON THE WORLD. Hence, what we see here is people trying to get in living and acting any kind of way. It doesn’t work like that. No one comes to the Father except through the Son and that means something has got to change. HE CAME FOR THE LOST SHEEP OF ISRAEL. YOU ARE SAVED BY GRACE.
See, the word says, “Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Yahshuah, and by the Spirit of our Elohim.”
Wake up Israel!!!!

I can hear someone saying as I write this. How or why does she keep saying that?
Well, I wouldn’t have believed it myself, except that Yah says “all things work out for the good of them who are the called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28). So we have to know this to be true no matter how its looking right now.
I know sister and brother that some of us are at our wits end with the way things are going. Remember we face the same things, having all temptations in common (1 Corinthians 10:13). Yah has provided an escape for you my friend…you will be able to bear it. Hang in there.
A while ago, my daughter contracted an infection in her eye. First it was weak and running so I do what we do and went to the drug store and bought eye drops, it was kinda pinkish but she said it didn’t hurt so I let it ride.
It got worse as time went on…during the process I noticed what I thought to be a fever blister so I said to myself that she has inward fever, treated that and it went away. Her eye didn’t improve however, I assumed by now that it was the pink eye.
We know that these doctors say there is not a cure for pink eye…so I say to myself again it will stop soon. It didn’t stop…he eye became so weak that she could not keep it open and was walking around feeling the furniture like a blind person.
I said, “Halie, why are you keeping your eyes shut, do they hurt?”
She says, “No, they won’t stay open..I can’t open them!”
Ladies and Gentlemen, all this was in the span of a little more than a week, and I tell you it got worse.
I had another bright idea, looking on the internet for eye problems and the symptoms matched that of mold in the home. We had a water leak so I was convinced that this was the problem, and demanded that my husband clean that bathroom thoroughly and paint it…we were infested. My bathroom looked great, but Halie’s eye got worse.
She screams, “OUCH, MY EYES ARE BURNING, I CAN’T SEE!”
We run out to the emergency, expecting the worse.
The doctor says, “This type of virus comes from swimming in lakes and public pools…this is the last stage of it, when it gets worse its getting better.”
He said, the sure sign was when he saw the sore healing (I thought it was a fever blister).
So Ladies and Gentlemen, that problem you got…it’s getting better. It might not seem like it cause it’s sore right now, but behind the scenes…it’s getting better.
