It Take TwO?


it takes 2It takes two to do a lot of things, but in marriage it takes 4 actors in that is it takes Yahuah who is the head (Yahshua)- as the head of man, it takes man as the head of woman and woman over the children let’s not forget the Ruach to guide both man and woman.

Now it does take two, but what it takes two to do is being confused. Men don’t want their headship because society has placed the black woman in head so long that it is the norm that the men allow us to lead them. However, those wanting their place don’t want responsibility with it. There is a misconception with this, because some women are out here doing all this stuff buying with material then the wife who has her children and the home is taking care of her business which does not allow for all that stuff. In other words, somebody is going to suffer, something is going to suffer if he is demanding your money and his.

See it like this…if there is not enough money to cover expenses then yes it takes two. However, if there is not enough money still but a chance to increase that then someone has to be willing to either learn or expound on what they know to increase the income flow. Hence, if someone is not willing to do that for their family then they can’t complain about it takes two, because if it takes two for one thing, it two for all things. Education, work, chores, etc. Anything else is unequally yoked.

So if I am uneducated and have to do something I don’t like to make money and most likely spend a great deal of time trying to make ends meet and my mate has chosen to educate himself to ease the load of work that he does. I cannot complain because I have to work long hours are all the time when I have the same opportunity to better my playing ground. Does that make sense?

We are speaking of unequally yoked today. Problem solving.

True Peacemakers of Elohim


blessed-are-the-peacemakers_t_nvBlessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called children of Elohim. (Matthew 5:9)

Peace, we all long for it, and it is the premise that when someone can live peaceable among messiness they have truly arrived at a level of greatness. Peace in context is the absence of confusion, the absence of war, keeping peace, and so on, and we note that it is an ideal situation when all is calm and quiet.

How does a person come to a level of peace? As I was looking at the definition of it I notice a reference to mental calm and tranquility, but also note the use of “law and order,” and ask do we have law and order and if not how do we get it?

The word on the street is that “The Law” of Yahweh is null and void, however, without it we are thrown into a tail spin, so how do we live in peace if we don’t know the law? The answer is we learn it and live it.

In the United States there are simple laws and there are more complex laws to govern us. I will use a common law against stealing which is against the Law of Yahweh and also man’s law which says “Do not steal.” In this common law we ask why is it not good to steal? Why can’t I go out and take what I want; especially, if I am hungry or if I need a car why can’t I (a person in need) have what I need? For one thing we note the law of the land which is common and says that if I steal I am going to jail or pay a fine in which I most likely can’t pay because of the fact that people with money are lest likely to steal or I will do what the word of Yahweh says and not steal because he says so. In the latter case stealing is not appealing and I have turned away from thoughts of this which in turn promotes peace for my neighbors and society as a whole. Hence, I see that it is for the common good of mankind that this law exists, because there is peace promoted for everyone.

I can hear it, people saying “They steal anyway!” Yes, because they don’t know God and they don’t know Peace. There is no in between, either we know Yah or not. We can’t have it both ways.

Today: The law of Yahweh promote peace and those who follow them are the Peacemakers. Are you one? Study the law and live it, it is for your good.
Know God, Know Peace. No God, No Peace.

Pride Comes Before Destruction


Proverbs-16--3So what I decided is that we can’t help anyone if they don’t want to be helped. I have seen it all today. What I see is that people are arrogant, haughty and prideful. It is not the case that all people who are arrogant, haughty and prideful who concern me. We have to know that all people’s problems are not ours to handle, however, when it is right there in your face, this is the lesson. We can deal with it or be done with it.

Deal with it, let us consider that a moment, when we deal with those types of people we have to know that they don’t know they are that way. Arrogance and all the rest I have discovered comes in certain degrees. As does haughtiness, and a prideful spirit. Which degree we work with is important in considering who is past help and who can be helped. It is not the case that all people can’t be helped however, there are some who can’t be and no matter how we try to help it won’t work. So that we see now, some things are for God and some things are with our power which is as it should be. Furthermore, we get a clue that we are powerless without him and powerful with him; all thing all are possible.

It is not that we should continue in these tug of war episodes which led to death and destruction of life and happiness, but is noted that this is the time to get out of the way and allow Yahweh to do what he does, fix it his way. That is hard to do until the matter is removed from our hands. We have to know that we cannot out fix, work it out like he can. He is all wise.

Be done with it, let us consider the possibilities of that…we release that thing, that person which in this form of haughtiness, pridefulness and arrogance have reached a maximum limit in life. We can no longer deal it, this is because the person we deal with has become “narcissistic” in there mind, that being, all three rolled into one big prideful, arrogant and haughty mess. We can’t help them but God can. Pray, Pray, Pray and pray again. God says, “It’s all about how we proceed.”

Time to let it go, be done with it, and give it to God.

Praying for all to be set free today….enjoy it.

Blessed is he who is not offended by Me


Matthew 11:4-6

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.

Holy is Your Name (Helen Baylor)


A Sinners’ Prayer


No one but the dead have ever experienced it; hence we know that one day it will happen that way for us. Conversely, of all the things we can do to prevent other things, this thing we have not power to stop.

Moreover, in our quest for life..to be safe, to live in peace that thing; that is, death comes up more often than we like to think. Those who have accepted that death is inevitable have planned for it’s arrival.

Although, someone now has thought in their heart about a hefty insurance policy tucked away; the ultimate insurance policy of interest is “Eternal Life,” are you ready? Are you sure?

If you’re not sure today whether when you die you will enter God‘s Kingdom…pray this prayer with me:

Dear God in heaven, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your forgiveness.

I believe that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvaryand died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin.

You said in Your Holy Word, Romans 10:9 that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.

Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul. With my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved.

Thank you Jesus for your unlimited grace which has saved me from my sins. I thank you Jesus that your grace never leads to license, but rather it always leads to repentance. Therefore Lord Jesus transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not to myself.

Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life.
Amen.

God Wants Specific Prayer

Why is it that we’re having such a hard time making our requests known to God, Huh? This matter has come up that some of us are going to God with these one word, stilted and stuttering, monotonic prayers. But yet proclaiming that we are righteous, love him, and have the appearance of a great relationship with Him.

For all purposes I’m speaking to some of our so called seasoned saints, not the babies. This isn’t a pleasant subject, doesn’t look good for some of us…doesn’t sound good and certainly doesn’t feel good to hear. But it’s got to be said because  God doesn’t want us to be fidgety, and acting like we don’t know what to say to him.

Some of us will declare all out war if we need a speed bump on the street we live on. We WILL NOT just walk up to our neighbor and say, “here sign this,” and expect them to act. No we will walk up to them and explain the need of the speed bump, tell them why and how we can make this go forth, and also request their signature. Why then if we can go into detail with the neighbor we see from time to time can’t we go to God with specifics of our needs?

I have this image of God yawning with some of our prayers…wow! Is He pleased or bored?

God says, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”

(James 5:16)

Then if our prayers are effective and powerful,why don’t we see it? Is it because we’ve gone to God with a one word prayer?

Today: BE SPECIFIC!

Let us pray:

Father we thank you that your word has gone forth, that you want to answer the prayers of everyone who comes to you. We don’t want to use the excuse that you know our needs but come to you with specifics, and details, with conversation and details about our day, our problems, and requests for others. We want to be open and honest about all things. We thank you God that now we will walk in new freedom because of these prayers…we thank you God for making a way for us…In Jesus name…Amen

When they Lie, Continue with the Example


Psalm 108:13

 With God’s help we will do mighty things,
for he will trample down our foes.
“Do our prayers end with requests for help to make it through stressful situations? David prayed not merely for rescue, but for victory. With God’s help we can claim more than mere survival-we can claim victory! Look for ways God can use your distress as an opportunity to show his mighty power.” (The Life Application Bible Study)
One of the worst wars to be in is living with a person who cannot tell the truth. There must be purpose to every life so I consider it a blessing this morning to know that God has purposed me for the great task of being an example of what truth is; however, it is not my truth that is in question when it comes to others people’s lies. It is God who purposed me to bring his truth to the forefront of the matter.
Many people like to use Proverbs 6:19 when speaking of false tongues. I have found myself claiming that many times for someone else, and as I write this message for you I must consider that since God does hate a false tongue, a lying tongue a person who sows discord, then he hates me  too, when I am messy, when I lie and hard to get along with. Right, so it is not the case that I need ever to take the word of God to dangle over someones head; even the liar.
Really, I tell you without a shadow of a doubt I hate to be lied to, and I hate it even worse when someone stands there and continually welds that lie despite the fact that the truth is showing up; yea, you have been caught.
Obviously, there is a problem, either, the person has a problem because they are the ones lying; or, it is my response to the lie in them.
Ah! The “lie” in them which presents the problem for me. (The Lying Spirit, see my notes).
We have to know that under normal circumstances or when one becomes saved that those things contrary to the word of God; get attention. In fact, if we are a liar then chances are we are going to stick out like a sore thumb among many healed thumbs. It is not the case that anyone has become so holy that we don’t mess up; however, the “Spirit of Truth” is going to step in front of the lie before we even speak it out…most times.
So here I am thinking some outlandish, off the wall lie to tell someone and I believe it first that someone else is ignorant to the “lie” in me, and I speak it. Paul, gives this wisdom and says, “14 We know that the Law is spiritual; but I am a creature of the flesh [carnal, unspiritual], having been sold into slavery under [the control of] sin.15 For I do not understand my own actions [I am baffled, bewildered]. I do not practice or accomplish what I wish, but I do the very thing that I loathe [which my moral instinct condemns].

16 Now if I do [habitually] what is contrary to my desire, [that means that] I acknowledge and agree that the Law is good (morally excellent) and that I take sides with it.

17 However, it is no longer I who do the deed, but the sin [principle] which is at home in me and has possession of me.

18 For I know that nothing good dwells within me, that is, in my flesh. I can will what is right, but I cannot perform it. [I have the intention and urge to do what is right, but no power to carry it out.]

19 For I fail to practice the good deeds I desire to do, but the evil deeds that I do not desire to do are what I am [ever] doing.

(Romans 7: 14-19)

Confront the lying spirit in me first and then them. Of course, someone will say, “But they are the ones with the problem!” Well, yes they are; however their problem has nothing to do with our response to the lie, because we know that Satan is the father of lies. Why are we acting contrary to the word and acting in Bitterness, Resentfulness, Unforgiveness…? We have to confront our own lies first which cause dissension as well.
Stop arguing and start speaking truth in love that will save us and. The redeemed of the Lord are speaking up, and fighting the Good fight of faith.If someone needs help, it is up to us to be an example of what truth really is…will you pray?

Father God in the name of Jesus we come to bind the spirit of lies in anyone we call husband, wife, son, daughter, friend, and most of all self…we bind that spirit causing dissension in us and in them and send it to the pits of hell where it belongs. We loose peace, sound thinking, wisdom of your word to handle this thing through prayer and supplication we want to make our requests known so that we can be healed once and for all. God we need more love, more joy, more kindness, and long suffering. We thank you Lord for these trials that will produce the patience we need to stand, to continue on in prayer, to not give up on these people who you will one day work healing in and through to bring glory to your name. We thank you Lord for the opportunity to improve and expand in areas of lack,,,thank you God for the hearing of your word which sheds light to us. Today, we give you praise. In Jesus name we pray and ask it all. Amen.
For your hearing:
Galatians 5
