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:
Many of us have received truth, especially receiving truth about Yah/Yahshuah’s name. There is not a secret….many of us are really concerning ourselves with what others are going to think about them should they make it known that they no longer believe; or rather, no longer see that Jesus is the way. Moreover, some are beginning to be challenged in their belief that Jesus is the name above all names by which one can be saved. Why? It is because Yah is revealing truth that truth has been taken away and other meanings added to, which he adamantly (in text) warns against.
Now then if the word says, “If you deny me before men,” does that mean Jesus, because a multitude/mass of people claim Jesus, Lord, God everywhere. All over the nation and abroad, Christianity being the largest religion in the world, and Catholicism being 2nd. There is not a instance of denial there.
This denial then has come after one has learned truth. “If you deny me before men, I will deny you before my Father in heaven.” Right!
Therefore, it must be that this is not the name…Because, again, no one denies the name of Jesus besides a few awaken.
Today: Rethink that thing, challenge this doctrine of Satanic thinking and say…reality checks game. Yahshuah is the only way. It cannot be denied. The narrow gate is not the way of Christian thinking.
For your hearing:
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!!!!

Ladies n Gentlemen,
Here is an enlightening thought as we partake of new found knowledge and wisdom today. Let us consider the profound thinking today which is so unlike that which we have been taught. Word has it that to day Sunday has been and today still associated with pagan sun god worship. What this says for many of us is that we are guilty of idolatry and disobedience when we continue on in these things knowing the truth of them. However, we cannot escape saying or writing or living our days out without them. What do we do.?
The word says that we are in the world not of the world. Well,
this says much about how we approach Sunday once we know truth, and we can ascertain that we cannot skip a Sunday in this life, but we can choose not to participate in whatever it is which goes against the Most High.
Hence, we see that some things can be avoided and some cannot. Whatever the case, Yahweh calls us to preach truth no matter what day it is…someone, somewhere needs the word to save them. Therefore, let us continue on towards the mark of the High call that is in the Messiah our Lord.
Instinctively, we no longer participate or blaspheme his holy name. Be ye faithful.

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14).
How many of us really have a firm grasp of truth? We think we do but we don’t, even the greatest scholars and theologians missed this word, why because it has nothing to do with what we think and see but what Yah reveals…when the word says enter the narrow gate, that there are few who find it; it is because few can see it there…why? First of all we have to find it, the narrow gate cannot be found without revelation, because if it were that easy everyone would be there. Secondly, because of all the “stuff” blocking “The Way.”
Society has conditioned us to believe that if everybody is doing it then it must be ok even in the church. In contrast, society has sold us many things like drugs, alcohol, and sex through movies, and other means and then offers us rehabilitation to recover from them, even in the church a so called rehabilitation center both are worldly. Everybody does those things and they are going the wrong way.
However, this picture is bigger than drugs, alcohol and sex .
It’s what we see, similar to following the highway and having to pay attentions to signs and while driving you and a friend are into a deep conversation and while the exit to the narrow gate looms just ahead, somehow we don’t see because we have gotten off into this deep conversation about something else.
Let’s talk about the broad gate…our friends are there, church members, family and a host of others going down the same road…how do we know those people are there on the same path…well, if we go to the same church most likely we are hanging around with people who are like us…we listen to the word from a preacher, go to church on Sunday and probably eat at each other’s houses. Those in the same income bracket hang with those in the same. While the poorer are friends with their friends that probably aren’t good for them but because those people in the church are nonsocial able this is what happens, the members sleep with other members married are not, the deacons are stealing…all types of stuff is available on the broad road…the preachers are carted off to jail….everybody’s doing it, the narrow gate…happens when you start to wonder and ask God does he really want you living like that…this is church Yah we say, what is the problem?
Furthermore, why would the Yahshua have this conversation with believers in the first place if they were following “The Way?” Remember he said “Ye are the salt of the earth but if the salt loses its flavor it is good for nothing?” So, what happened then that Yahshua, had to say this if they were on the narrow path? Some weren’t you see, and he had to warn them that there are wolves in sheep’s clothing come to steal them.
The Way to the narrow path is not Christianity and here is why, we must broaden our thinking past the small individual happenings in our own lives. The whole world believes the faith of Christianity. Notably, there are people being converted to believe in the name of Jesus more than any other religion on the planet. Somebody says that is proof that we are on the right path…well, no it’s not. It says much about persuasion and the need for people to fit in and be like everyone else. There are people sitting in church from Sunday to Sunday who are not saved. How do we know…look at the rate of deliverance and the behavior in the church. People look, think, and act just like the unsaved.
Look at this:
According to the article, “Christianity Today – General Statistics and Facts of Christianity.” Mary Fairchild states, “Christianity is ranked the largest religion in the world today. According to the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, in 2010 there were 2.18 billion Christians around the world, nearly a third of the global population.” Conversely, when we look at scripture the narrow gate doesn’t seem likely to be found by the masses of the population. When we look at the term “find it” we note that this is something that isn’t so easily accepted.
The Pew Forum on Public Religion & Public Life gives this estimate:
“More than one-quarter of American adults (28%) have left the faith in which they were raised in favor of another religion – or no religion at all. If change in affiliation from one type of Protestantism to another is included, 44% of adults have either switched religious affiliation, moved from being unaffiliated with any religion to being affiliated with a particular faith, or dropped any connection to a specific religious tradition altogether.”
In a way this one would seem that there is something that Christianity is lacking being that the practice of it is so much like the world. It is problematic when people cannot see a difference why would they stay?
Fairchild gives a breakdown of those who practice Christianity worldwide, the Top 3 Largest National Christian Populations:
- US – 246,780,000 (79.5% of the Population)
- Brazil – 175,770,000 (90.2% of the Population)
- Mexico – 107,780,000 (95% of the Population):
Conversely, if the thinking is to find the narrow gate; the question becomes whether the masses hold the key to finding it. Isn’t this more like the broad road; rather than the narrow gate leading to life?
Let’s look at the text,
11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:
13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.
15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,
16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?
18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.
19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.
One came back to give Yah praise, and that one was not associate with Christianity. Notably, he was one those in Christianity would consider least likely. What happened to the others? They went on their way to follow the masses. Narrow is the gate those who praise Yah in spirit and truth will find the narrow gate.
According to Pew, “The survey finds that the number of people who say they are unaffiliated with any particular faith today (16.1%) is more than double the number who say they were not affiliated with any particular religion as children. Among Americans ages 18-29, one-in-four say they are not currently affiliated with any particular religion.”
Note: No religion doesn’t equal no belief or faith.
People are evoking their right to choose; even in Religion. Considering our finding, the narrow gate isn’t found in the Masses. People are finding the narrow gate their own way with revelation for the Most High. There is hope.

Let me drop this dime on ya. Nobody, has had this type of experience until they are so intent on their false teachings and thinking that they actually are committing spiritual murder and causing injury to the children of YHWH.
However, YHWH has called many but few are chosen to hear —literally, stopping us in our tracks. YHWH is removing the scales off our eyes… If we are preaching anything other than truth we are kiiling people.
Yah says you shall know the truth, means that we don’t know unless he reveals it…what is his name?
Immediately, after that the text says that Paul did not immediately confer with flesh and blood. He was set apart, the mind has a way of rejecting truth…meditate and pray on it.
For your hearing
And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,
And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem. And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:
And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
And he said, Who art thou, Lord?
And the Lord said, I am Yahshua whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. And he trembling and astonished said, Yashuah, what wilt thou have me to do?
And the Yahshua said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.
And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man. And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus.”

4 Jesus answered and said to them, “Go and tell John the things which you hear and see: 5 The blind see and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them. 6 And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.”
This is a profound word! You must really listen to hear it.
John is the one who before birth jumped in his mothers womb upon hearing Mary ‘s (who was pregnant) voice. The word says that Elizabeth (John’s mother) was filled with the Holy Ghost and she Praised YHWH. Why? The anointing was powerful on Mary, she carried the Savior, the Messiah.
This is significant because John is related to Yahshuah but the two never met. His mom and Yahshua’s mom’s are cousins. Notably, John was raised by the teaching of the Torah. Moreover, he was chosen before birth to announce Yahshuah. This is significant because when John is in prison after doing all that preaching and baptizing. Ironically, he had been preaching and baptizing about someone he had never met, nor, layed eyes on and he sent word to Yahshuah to ask was he the one, or, should he look for someone else. Trained in the word of YHWH, anointed for the assignment of announcing the Savior but never laid eyes on Him…obedience, faith in action.
Now then, Jesus says to the two, “Go and tell John the things which you hear and see: 5 The blind see and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them. 6 And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.”
So now we see what the two messengers were instructed to tell him…John had not been afforded the opportunity to see GREATNESS but PREACH about it; so, he had second hand knowledge of the miracles taking place. He had to depend on others who knew truth to give it to him, hence, at this point they knew more, and saw more than he; basically, witnessing to him what he could not see. He could either accept or reject what that told him. Early on we note with John that he spent much of time in the wilderness, living meagerly; however, his announcing Yeshuah’s coming was by divine revelation. He didn’t attend school like the Pharisee. We hear nothing of a title, yet, he was chosen to announce Yahshuah. Why, because the least likely are the most likely to be chosen.
Yet, Yahshua says “blessed is he who is not offended by Me.” Blessed is he who is not put off by my presence, not jealous, not, and I love this scandalized or see me as a stumbling block…Wow!
Now, offended has a Hebrew meaning, look at this:
Skandalizō is the Hebrew transliteration of offended which sounds like you see it.
Here is the break down:
1) to put a stumbling block or impediment in the way, upon which another may trip and fall, metaph. to offend
a) to entice to sin
b) to cause a person to begin to distrust and desert one whom he ought to trust and obey
1) to cause to fall away
2) to be offended in one, i.e. to see in another what I disapprove of and what hinders me from acknowledging his authority
3) to cause one to judge unfavourably or unjustly of another
c) since one who stumbles or whose foot gets entangled feels annoyed
1) to cause one displeasure at a thing
2) to make indignant
3) to be displeased, indignant
Here’s a great point…we have been discussing YHWH’s true name, and we have most certainly seen people be offended because Yashuah’s name has been revealed. However, this was the name in the beginning and we know that because the name Jesus is 1) a translation, and 2) English which is not 2000 years old, and, 3) the letter j is not a part of the Hebrew or Arabic Alphabet. People have been offended about his name; however, he says plainly “blessed are they who are not offended by me.” For john this meant someone else was preaching now…and for those today who have these titles and authority to teach this might be a little embarrassing that Yah is choosing some least likely people to get the word out. Teaching somethings that weren’t taught in the seminaries and most certainly teaching something you might feel should not be taught for whatever reasons you think. Yahshua says, “Blessed is he who is not offended because of Me.”
He who hath an ear for truth let him hear it.
The more clearly Isaiah saw God, the more aware Isaiah became of his own powerlessness and inadequacy to do anything of lasting value without God. But he was willing to be God’s spokesman. When God calls, will you also say, “Send me”?
Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send? And who will go for Us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. (Isaiah 6:8)
(Life Application Bible Study Devotion)
Are you willing, even if the calls is not one of comfort?
We can say yes, however, when the time comes to go there we balk and fight because the assignment God is calling us to is against the grain…the grain meaning what everybody is doing.
How many have cooked a pot roast? I’m using an example of the pot roast because those things are really fun to cook because you get to put all these great seasonings, and it slow cooks…how many know that the juice cook through and though when that thing slow cooks.
Conversely, nobody likes a dried out and brittle roast, and neither do that like it tough. I used to watch my mother cut the meat and notably, she said that there was a way to cut it that didn’t go against the grain of the meat. The roast is made with these little lines that if cut the wrong way makes it crumble but if slice correctly you have neat thin cuts of meat that look great along side the potatoes and carrots that are waiting….hmmm, aren’t you hungry?
Well, I’m a witness that when the meat is cut correctly there is not a problem chewing and swallowing; however, if it’s not it gets stuck in your teeth and takes forever to get it out.
This is the way people are when they are asked to do something that goes against the grain of their thinking…they fall apart, because after there is a call, nothing is going to work after that…absolutely, nothing until you pick that thing up and do it.
Seemingly, it’s easier to follow the masses, but it takes much work to keep it together when you have to go against the grain, out of the area of comfort. God has been preparing us for this type of cut…seasoning, slow cooking us to desired gifting. Just right to labor.
God is calling us back, will you go?

Let’s talk about unequally yoked. We have been taught that we should wait on Godly and righteous men and this is a good thought if we can wait; however, the situation pans out many men and women who were not saved when they got marriage but are living righteously now.
Many people were God ordained to be married but someone might not be saved or maybe not delivered just yet. Hence, what we see is that maybe there is need of some perfecting of someone, someone needs see salvation, and someone must need help to become more like Christ. It is not the case that we are going to meet Prince Charming or Princess Charming and be whisked off into eternal blitz…someone needs to grow up and do some serious soul searching. Especially, if we have been married before, why is it that we aren’t bettering ourselves. Oh, I hear the excuses already, he didn’t , she did, and I won’t, I can’t; however, the question I ask brother, sister is what is going on when we find ourselves with other people and something is wrong with them too?
Can it be that if these people have the same problems that we are attracted to those same kinds of people or are drawing them to us; or, can it be my friend that the one thing all these wives, all these husbands has in common is you?
Be not unequally yoked with unbelievers in marriage, and in friendship. So the two have walked together and one turned back and has yet to return to Godliness equals unequally yoked. This is what happens when affairs take place within marriages and the other person must be restored. Our spirits separated, however, it doesn’t have to be adultery it can be any sin or thought that rises itself up against YHWH. Yes, YHWH remember we wrestle not against flesh and blood means that it is YHWH in us who needs to fight, too much of that flesh against flesh and we know that flesh never wins.
Renewing our minds is important…good word today….be not unequally yoked takes many forms. What we must do is find which one and fight the good fight of faith.
Stay in His Presence…

We must be realistic people losing their minds, people killing, people doing all manner of evil because Satan is sending his demons out in demonic possession…there is more attacking, the news filled because his time is running out, and the more people who lose their lives can’t get saved.
So guess what saints, we need to step up our game too and tell more about the Way to Yeshua, Gospel.
However, there’s a problem because the church folks aren’t working in full authority either; if any. How can we tell? Look at the people who aren’t delivered, look at news about preachers and other people who can’t handle their problems and resort to murder, and rape, and molestation, adultery just like the unsaved.
So people are dying because the church is failing…yes, failing because instead of worshiping the TRUE AND LIVING ELOHIM…THEY ARE WORSHIPING IDOLS OF MONEY AND MEN. Tell them the truth and save your life too!
People use this text “Unequally yoked” for marriage but this is meant for everyone, because Yah says that if by chance someone is married to an unbeliever that person can be sanctified by the believing spouse; so this is not just for marriage. Furthermore, how are we to sanctify some one who is not saved outside of marriage..this is a big problem when we find ourselves enthralled by idol worship…the world and the church look the same.
“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
