Facing God: I Will Not Quit Until You Bless Me


FightfortheTruth_slide1x_365_y_273

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.

For your hearing:

Genesis 32:24; Ephesians 6:12

We Were Once Trees, but Now We are Stumps


10325159_795786827100616_5801583484141491399_nWe are reading in Isaiah.

We were once trees, but now we are stumps.

From Chapter 11 it reads, “Isa 11:1 And a Rod shall come forth from the stump of Yishai, and a Sprout from his roots shall bear fruit. The Spirit of יהוה shall rest upon Him – the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of יהוה, ”

I don’tknow why we believe that the Messiah came for people looking good and smelling pretty. From the looks and sound of this verse there is indication there that Yahushua was born into a wretched and messy family. Sounds exactly like black folk.

The minute we stop overeating, lose a little weight, or come off the cocaine, or stop whoring around, or get a little degree or make a dollar past two we become puffed, proud and arrogant. Don’t let us know a scripture, because then we go about acting holier than thou. And I asked what happened to the person underneath all the make up and hair whatever became of his or her heart?

Being that we are so caught up in new design, who did this and that we never really start to seek an answer for our problems which brought us to the point of overeating, smoking crack, whoring. Hence, the only thing we did was seek stuff to make us be whole, but are we really, whole?

We were once trees, but now we are stumps. Kinda like we don’t realize we have been cut down, but for that reason since we’ve been cut down Yahuah come to save us. If we have not that connection then we die, but because Yah has a hand on us and allows us to ask forgiveness we can become one with him—again.

My neighbor’s tree will be an illustration of this message. That tree has been torn and falls apart with every wind and rain, however, because of the root that tree stands strong even though there are parts rotted and there are parts cut off…new life forms because they are connected to the source .

The Reign of Heaven on Earth


the kingdom of heavenThe reign of heaven is not what we think.

We should look deeply at this this term reign because Yahshua says he is giving us the reign of heaven and we shouldn’t be so quick to think money and wealth so quickly. If Yah says, “Do not worry,” and “I will supply your needs” this brings to light that someone is not living a glam filled life.

So listen, to have the reign of heaven on earth is what this means {Matthew 7].

To reign on earth one has to have thinking of predominance, or rather to hold the position and name of sovereign with out exercising the ruling power. In other words, to reign on earth we enjoy the privileges of a heavenly lifestyle until its time to take our place again as royal priests. That means, control over our thoughts, our lifestyles as chosen, beloved and graced of Yah. Does that make sense?

Look at this:

Mat 13:44 “Again, the reign of the heavens is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man having found it, hid, and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.
Mat 13:45 “Again, the reign of the heavens is like a man, a merchant, seeking fine pearls,
Mat 13:46 who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

So then we are finding truth of identity and giving up ungodliness for righteousness or right thinking to live set apart.

You have heard sold out, or you have heard do not cast your pearls to the swine, then this is it? The reign of heaven on earth.

Few there are who find it. The narrow gate.
