Let no one deceive you!

Mark 7:5 Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, “Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?”
6 He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written: ‘This people honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me.
7 And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ 
8 For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men—the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do.”

If the Pharisees knew who they were talking to, they not only would shut up, but they would have been on their faces, ashamed of their pride and arrogance. But they had no clue as to who it was that they were addressing so rudely and without respect.

And we, who call ourselves after His name, Christian’s, do no better than these Pharisees, who follow traditions but do no recognize the Son of YHWH God even when He stands before you and offers testimony.

How is it that we worship the most-high God, and do not know Him? We call upon His Holy name but turn away from Him when it comes to love and obedience. When will we come to understand what it means to be His bride?

He said, “‘This people honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’” (Vs 6)

We need to consider what kind of message we are sending to Him who is our Savior and King when we teach others things that are simply not in the Bible.

He says, “If you love Me, keep My commandments.” (John 14:15) and then to that He adds, “He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” (John 14:21)

But we not only ignore His Words, but we claim that He abolished the very same Commandments He asks that we keep. This tells me that we do not know Him, if we live according to this doctrine.

If He had done away with the ordinances of God, why in our selfish way of thinking would we think such a thing. And why would he have spoken contrary to that.

Did He not say, “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.” (Matthew 5:17)

He came to fulfill the Law, not to abandon it. If we want to know Him, we need to understand what He says, and not impose idiotic doctrine on His own words. And if you want to verify what I am telling you simply look at the word in Greek to see what Fulfill means. The Word in the Greek is “Pleroo” meaning to fully explore or teach.

But how are you to know these things, when those who are instructing you do not value the truth, and you have no inclination to test what they tell you according to the scriptures. If that doesn’t resonate in your heart, I don’t know what will get your attention and cause you to walk as he walked.

Here is the whole reason for His visitation, to call us back to the scriptural Commandments of God and to give us the grace we need to set us on His path.

All we have to do is read a few more verses beyond Matthew 5:17 to understand clearly what He is conveying to us in words.

He goes on to say, “For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.” (Vs 18)

Has heaven or the Earth been done away with? No! Then the Law has not been abolished!


“Whoever therefore, breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” (Vs 19)

So now, He shames those of us who do not teach or practice the commandments, by saying that we are not seen as great in heaven, but instead we will be found lacking. However, those who keep and preach the Commandments as they were given by God the Father, they will be seen as great by heaven.

“For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Vs 20)

When we began this Message for today, let me remind you that Yahshua /Jesus told the Pharisees that they had fallen short of the mark, and He was not very nice about it. If they continue to do what they have been doing according to the Messiah, they will not be able to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Just as He says here!

But if we continue to follow a path that is less than the same path as the Pharisees, we will also be fuel for the furnaces of Hell. Because we are lacking in righteousness.

Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. (1st John 3:7)

Without the commandments how is it that we can claim to be righteous?  And don’t say that Jesus is your righteousness, that’s just another lie! You must have a righteousness of your own. Why else would he ask us to keep His Commandments?

The Apostle John clears it all up, for those of us who are wrestling with the questions that have arisen from this teaching, when He says, “Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. 
He who says, “I know Him, “and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 
But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. 
He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.”

The Commandments we are to keep are the same ones He kept as an example to us, so that we would know how to walk according to the Way, the Truth, and the Life.

Now is the time to repent and return to the living Word of God. Before He comes, be restored to Him and His ways.

Shalom my friends,

America has become a dung heap!

2nd Chronicles 15:1 Now the Spirit of God came upon Azariah the son of Oded. 
2 And he went out to meet Asa, and said to him: “Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin. The Lord is with you while you are with Him. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will forsake you. 
3 For a long time Israel has been without the true God, without a teaching priest, and without law; 
4 but when in their trouble they turned to the Lord God of Israel, and sought Him, He was found by them. 
5 And in those times, there was no peace to the one who went out, nor to the one who came in, but great turmoil was on all the inhabitants of the lands. 
6 So nation was destroyed by nation, and city by city, for God troubled them with every adversity. 
7 But you, be strong and do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded!”
8 And when Asa heard these words and the prophecy of Oded the prophet, he took courage, and removed the abominable idols from all the land of Judah and Benjamin and from the cities which he had taken in the mountains of Ephraim; and he restored the altar of the Lord that was before the vestibule of the Lord. 
9 Then he gathered all Judah and Benjamin, and those who dwelt with them from Ephraim, Manasseh, and Simeon, for they came over to him in great numbers from Israel when they saw that the Lord his God was with him.

This is what the Spirit of God does, He brings people, and nations, back to true worship. He is the Holy Spirit, who teaches, who guides us, the Spirit of truth, and the hand of YHWH God in our lives.

Now the Spirit of God came upon Azariah the son of Oded. And he went out to meet Asa, and said to him: “Hear me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin. The Lord is with you while you are with Him. If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will forsake you. (Vs 1, 2)

How is it possible to live in a world that YHWH God created and not know Him? the Apostle James said, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” (James 4:8) And here we are told the same thing, but more, about the relationship we have with our Elohim. For if you depart from Him, He will depart from you. Thus, we live without mercy or grace, and we find that the whole world is being bore up on our shoulders.

For a long time, Israel has been without the true God, without a teaching priest, and without law; but when in their trouble they turned to the Lord God of Israel, and sought Him, He was found by them. 
And in those times, there was no peace to the one who went out, nor to the one who came in, but great turmoil was on all the inhabitants of the lands. 
So, nation was destroyed by nation, and city by city, for God troubled them with every adversity. (Vs 3-6)

When YHWH God departs from those who have abandoned Him, He desires to have His children back. So, He let’s them deal with their godless reality. He brings the enemies of YHWH God to steal and destroy the life they once had, and blessings are replaced with hardships.

We are yet again brought to that place, where we will in unison cry out once more for Abba God our Creator to save us.

But you, be strong and do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded!”
And when Asa heard these words and the prophecy of Oded the prophet, he took courage, and removed the abominable idols from all the land of Judah and Benjamin and from the cities which he had taken in the mountains of Ephraim; and he restored the altar of the Lord that was before the vestibule of the Lord. 
Then he gathered all Judah and Benjamin, and those who dwelt with them from Ephraim, Manasseh, and Simeon, for they came over to him in great numbers from Israel when they saw that the Lord his God was with him. (Vs 7-9)

Over and over, this theme is repeated throughout the scriptures, and we see the Children of Israel experiencing this seesaw relationship with YHWH God because they are so prone to Idolatry and self-worship. They return to Yah, and then when things are prosperous, they depart, heaping up false teachers who speak sweet lies to their itching ears.

But here we see what Asa does in response. He removes the Idols, and restores the Altar of the Lord. He makes a clear path to the one true Elohim. He knows that there must be a removal of those things that are an offense to YHWH God, the very things that carried them away from Him.

Clearly, we can see in this, the path that my country must take. For we were once that shining city on a hill, but now we have become a dung heap. And if we continue on the path, we’re on now, there will be destruction.

I tell you now in the name of my King and Savior, Yahshua Christ, that unless we free ourselves from this godless rabble that is seated in our capitol city, YHWH God will destroy us, our Families, our economy, and leave us desolate.

We need to 1st and foremost get rid of false teachers, then get rid of their fruit. Men and women who think they can govern this country and sin. Those whose lies are a way of life. Those who have abused Children and defenseless people, those who have violated innocent lives, and laughed about it.

But most of all we must be rid of those who will not teach or preach God’s Law, because this is how he loves His Children, by their obedience to His Commandments.

Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him. 
By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. 
For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. 
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. 
Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? (1St John 5:1-5)

We will not be able to overcome the World without the Love of God, and this is what must happen first. We must return to Him, Now!

Shalom my friends,

Watching the wind!

John 3:1 There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 
2 This man came to Yahshua / Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.”
3 Yahshua / Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
4 Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”
5 Yahshua / Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 
7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 
8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

Nicodemus the Pharisee, came to Yahshua by night. He is a member of the Sanhedrin, a man of great power, for these men ruled over the lives of all Israeli’s. And of course, he comes at night because he doesn’t want to be seen in the company of Yahshua. Which tells us. that Yahshua is already in trouble with the Temple Priests. But Nicodemus will come to believe!

There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Yahshua / Jesus by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from God; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.” (Vs 1, 2)

We are privileged to be able to eavesdrop by way of the Word of God on this exchange that takes place between Yahshua and Nicodemus.

Nicodemus says, “no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him.” This is how He knows that there’s something Heavenly going on with Yahshua.

And Yahshua see’s this as an opportunity to expound on the gifts of the Holy Spirit. So, He speaks to Nicodemus about being born again.

Yahshua says, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (Vs 3) Unless a man becomes a new person, one who is reborn, He cannot see the Kingdom, nor can he possess the gifts of God.

Then come the question, the thing that Nicodemus and all of Israel needs to know. He asks, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” (Vs 4)

It’s kind of like that, isn’t it? A new life begins when the old one dies, a new heart is given and the old hard heart is cast aside.

Yahshua / Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. 
That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 
Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’” (Vs 5-7) 

When we come to Christ with an open heart and mind, He receives us, and Baptism is the water signifying a new birth into the Spirit. Thus, the old life ceases, and the new begins. We stop our sinful ways and walk as if we are a part of the Kingdom of God.

We begin to love others in ways we had not before, because we see their Spirit also. And here is where the commandments come into play. The Love of God drives us to want to live for Him.

“If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever. (John 14:15, 16)

And “He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” (John 14:21)

When we acquire the Holy Spirit, along with it comes the gifts, and the presence of Yahshua, and the Father. Therefore, we have entered the kingdom, and signs and wonders ensue. We are baptized and everything else that Yahshua says will follow.

“Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 
The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” (VS 7, 8)

This event takes place right before the eyes of men, and they cannot see it any more than we can see the wind. But what we see is the effects of the wind, not the wind itself. And so, we see the effects of the presence of the Holy Spirit. the effects of the gifts, and that’s what drove Nicodemus to come to Yahshua Christ and ask how these things are done.

“Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.” (John 14:10)

The only thing that keeps us from doing the things that the Holy Spirit brings, is our sin. And that sin is caused by our unwillingness to follow God’s instructions, Torah. (The Law)

This is why the Apostle john says, He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 
But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. 
He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked. (1st John 2:4-6)

Now is the time to Change our ways, and petition YHWH God for the gifts of the Spirit, so that we can glorify both the Father and the Son, Yahshua.

Shalom my friends,

Time is short!

John 1:24 Now those who were sent were from the Pharisees. 
25 And they asked him, saying, “Why then do you baptize if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?”
26 John answered them, saying, “I baptize with water, but there stands One among you whom you do not know. 
27 It is He who, coming after me, is preferred before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose.”
28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing.
29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! 
30 This is He of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who is preferred before me, for He was before me.’ 
31 I did not know Him; but that He should be revealed to Israel, therefore I came baptizing with water.”
32 And John bore witness, saying, “I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him. 
33 I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’ 
34 And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God.”

John the Baptist was being questioned by the Pharisees, probably because so many were coming to Him to be baptized, and he had a huge following. 

The Temple priests didn’t like the competition cutting into their territory. So, they had to question everyone who was functioning as a priest, and that is what John was doing. He was preaching and baptizing according to the Word of God.

He preached that men must repent, and return to the Commandments of YHWH God, Because He, the Son of the most-high God, was coming.

They had asked Him if he was the Messiah, saying, “Who are you, that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?”
He said: “I am ‘The voice of one crying in the wilderness: “Make straight the way of the Lord,”’ (quoting Isaiah 40:3) (John 1:22, 23)

The Pharisees asked Him, “Why then do you baptize if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?” (Vs 25)

They were doing everything they could to get him to say something that they could use to discredit Him. Just as they would do Yahshua / Jesus. Because John had a following and people were coming from all over to see and hear Him prophesy of the coming Messiah.

John answered them, saying, “I baptize with water, but there stands One among you whom you do not know. It is He who, coming after me, is preferred before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose.” (Vs 26, 27)

He tells them that Messiah is here already, and he is in the midst of us. He knows that Yahshua / Jesus is close by. And He says, that He is not Worthy to even remove His sandals to wash His feet.

So, the Pharisees, if they believed John, they knew that the Son of God was about to make His appearance among the Children of Israel. But knowing them, they had no inclination to believe, even what this Prophet said.

These things were done in Bethabara beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing.
The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! 
This is He of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who is preferred before me, for He was before me.’  (Vs 28-30)

The next day Yahshua comes and John witnessed for Himself the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. As He Baptized Yahshua, the Holy Spirit descended like a dove on Him. John is vindicated in His own mind, now that He has seen it.

John says, “I did not know Him; but that He should be revealed to Israel, therefore I came baptizing with water.”
And John bore witness, saying, “I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him. 
I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’ 
And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God.” (Vs 31-34)

What I am driven to do in my ministry is much the same as what John was doing prior to the appearance of Messiah, it is the purpose of this ministry to inform as many people as possible that Christ Yahshua is coming, and that certain preparations should be made before His arrival.

Who does not know that when He comes this time it is not to administer grace, but to judge! And He will Judge us on the basis of the same Commandments He taught, according to the Word of YHWH God.

So many of us are in no way prepared to receive our King, because we are still violating His Word. The Fact that so many of us are treading on His Sabbath every week and unrepentant about it, will have grave consequences, that coupled with the fact that we are liars, thieves, adulterers, and love ourselves more than Abba God. Our collective goose will be cooked in Hell. Therefore we must change, and change now!

His judgment is always and forever correct. Do not forget that He is a righteous judge, and because He is, He will not excuse our deliberate sin.

Now is the time to come clean, and change our ways. Now is the time to repent and return to the Way of Christ. For if we delay until He comes it will not go well for us.

“Make straight the way of the Lord,” Time is short!

Shalom my friends,

Yahshua, as a teacher of God’s Law.

16 Now behold, one came and said to Him, “Good Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?”
17 So He said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.”
18He said to Him, “Which ones?” Jesus said, “‘You shall not murder,’ ‘You shall not commit adultery,’ ‘You shall not steal,’ ‘You shall not bear false witness,’ 
19‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’”
20The young man said to Him, “All these things I have kept from my youth. What do I still lack?”
21Jesus said to him, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.”
22But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.
23Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 
24And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
25When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, “Who then can be saved?”
26But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Here is a well-dressed young man, seeking eternal life who says to Yahshua, “Good Teacher, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?” (Vs 16)

The response is not exactly what he is expecting, as Yahshua says, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.” (Vs 17)

Yahshua is taking the focus off of Himself and placing it on the Father as He explains that in comparison to His Father in Heaven, He himself is not good. The goodness He speaks of is without any darkness at all.

Just as the apostle John tells us, “This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.” (1st John 1:5)

And Yahshua says, “But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.” But what Commandments? And why would He be bringing the Commandments into this conversation, if He was going to abolish them?

He says to the young man, as he asked, He said to Him, “Which ones?” Yahshua / Jesus said, “‘You shall not murder,’ ‘You shall not commit adultery,’ ‘You shall not steal,’ ‘You shall not bear false witness,’ 
‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’” (Vs 18, 19)

It sounds like to me that the very one who is said to be abolishing the Commandments at the cross, is teaching them without regard to anyone’s false doctrine regarding the Commandments. Could it be that Yahshua is after all a teacher of the Torah / God’s instructions? Clearly, this appears to be what He is doing, not only here but everywhere He goes.

This young man replies, “The young man said to Him, “All these things I have kept from my youth. What do I still lack?” (Vs 20)

I hear a little bit of pride in the reply from this young man, but little does he know that Yahshua is reading His thoughts, just as He does with everyone, including the Pharisees and scribes. So Yahshua addresses this young man’s short comings.

He says, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” (Vs 21)

But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions. (Vs 22)

This young man was stingy, he was afraid of being without funds, afraid to depend on God’s provision, as many of us are. It is not an easy thing to turn away from our wealth, in order to follow Yahshua, and His disciples.

We need to consider why that is, especially now that He is coming back to judge, and rule over us. We need to understand that He and His disciples led a life of poverty, and lived off of the bounty of God’s provision, whatever was needed was provided.

Now it happened as they journeyed on the road, that someone said to Him, “Lord, I will follow You wherever You go.”
And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” (Luke 9:57, 58)

Not just anyone can do this! But this young man had a lesson to learn, He could not count on God’s blessing and be stingy with it. What God gives us, is not for our own use, but is to prime the pump so to speak. We are to be unlimited in our giving for the purposed of bringing forward the Word of God. Help other who struggle, when the Holy Spirit moves us to help then we must, without reservation.

“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” (Luke 6: 38)

Yahshua turns to His disciple after this man has walked away, Then Yahshua / Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 
And again, I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, “Who then can be saved?”
But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Vs 23-26)

Being well to do, is a blessing, but also a handicap, perhaps it’s best to say it’s a calling that not many can rise to. Wealth and possessions and the responsibility that goes with it, can be a burden, especially if we begin to believe that our acquisitions are our own doing, and not God’s.

Also we should consider how we balance our wealth with loving our neighbor as ourselves?

I pray that this teaching has blessed you.

Shalom my friends,

How to always know the truth.

John 14:15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments. 
16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—
17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.”

Do we know when we’re being lied to? The Spirit that Yahshua Christ the Messiah gives us knows. For it will reveal the truth to us.

“This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,” (Hebrews 10:16)

When we begin to walk according to His teachings, and the Commandments He kept, then He gives us a measure of the Holy Spirit, that will reveal to us the truth. That Spirit takes up residence in us.

Thus, He says, “If you love Me, keep My commandments. 
And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.” (Vs 15-17)

The Apostle Paul spoke to the same thing saying, “do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 
For you were bought at a price; therefore, glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” (1st Corinthians 6:19, 20)

We are no longer our own but have become the property of God. And a transformation begins to take place.

For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. 
Now He who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God, who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee. (2nd Corinthians 1:20-23)

The Holy Spirit is given as a guarantee of what we will become so that when we see Him, we will be like Him.

It’s amazing what he has done for us to make us not only to belong to Him, but to be like Him.

Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of YHWH God! Therefore, the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 
Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. (1st John 3:1, 2)

Realize it or not, we no longer belong in this world, but we were created for something much better than this, and that’s what is coming, when He comes again, and that will be soon now.

Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away.” (Revelation 21:1)

We are like a fish out of water. Stranger’s living in a strange land. No longer can we be at home in this world. For the Spirit that inhabits us, and controls us, brings us into the truth in a world built on lies. There is no place for us here, and the proof of it is in the lies that are being poured out to us every day by professional liars.

They strive to convince us that there’s a need for a vaccine, because of a virus that they created for that purpose. Anyone who has the Spirit of truth knows that we are being lied to so that we will allow them to Alter our DNA, so that we will no longer be God’s property.

But if you are His, you will already know that something is dreadfully wrong about this entire charade.

I thank My Savior every day, for the voice He has given me, to know deception when it presents itself. I pray that my friends also hear that sweet voice that whispers in our ear, to tell us the truth, always.

Shalom my friends,

Why do nations suffer?

2nd Chronicles 7:12 “I have heard your prayer, and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice. 
13 When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, 

14 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 
15 Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place. 
16 For now I have chosen and sanctified this house, that My name may be there forever; and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually. 


17 As for you, if you walk before Me as your father David walked, and do according to all that I have commanded you, and if you keep My statutes and My judgments, 
18 then I will establish the throne of your kingdom, as I covenanted with David your father, saying, ‘You shall not fail to have a man as ruler in Israel.’
19 “But if you turn away and forsake My statutes and My commandments which I have set before you, and go and serve other gods, and worship them, 
20 then I will uproot them from My land which I have given them; and this house which I have sanctified for My name I will cast out of My sight, and will make it a proverb and a byword among all peoples.
21 “And as for this house, which is exalted, everyone who passes by it will be astonished and say, ‘Why has the Lord done thus to this land and this house?’ 
22 Then they will answer, ‘Because they forsook the Lord God of their fathers, who brought them out of the land of Egypt, and embraced other gods, and worshiped them and served them; therefore, He has brought all this calamity on them.’”

The Lord spoke to Solomon and said, “I have heard your prayer, and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice.” (Vs 12) Speaking of the Temple He will build! 

When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, (Vs 13)

Sacrifice is what we must do when we have sinned, and this is how we know that we have transgressed against YHWH God our Elohim. When things begin to go against us, and when it seems we are walking into a strong wind.

Just like they are today. And we are living out a time of pestilence, a man-made pestilence. Now is the time for prayer and for sacrifice. We have no temple except for the temple that we are, there is no altar except for what is within us. The Spirit of the risen Christ is our sacrifice, but how are we to know what to do with that if we are not willing to walk according to His way, and His example.

1st John 2:6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked.

He followed after God the Father, according to the instructions that we were all given, the Torah / Law! He honored God’s Sabbath, kept the Passover, as well as the other feast days, and taught the commandments everywhere He went.

Here is our sacrifice, to honor the Messiah of Israel by walking according to the Way, the truth, and the life.

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. (Romans 12:1, 2)

Because our itching ears have led us to believe the false doctrine of the traditional Church, and the preachers and prophets they have brought before us, we are so far away from Abba God now, we must backtrack almost 2000 years and return to Him and His ways.

This is our sacrifice! To come down to our knees and in humility return to the ancient path.

“if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (Vs 14)

Here is the Temple and the sacrifice must be made!

Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 
If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are. (1st Corinthians 3:16, 17)

Repent simple means to turn away from our sin and turn back to YHWH God. To continue to disregard the Word of God is the path to destruction. Why, if so many others have made this choice, is it so difficult for us to humble ourselves and do as Abba Father wills?

Most of us have a Bible, and even know what it says, but we have chosen to disregard these words.

“You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.” (Deuteronomy 4:2) 

Here is the promise if we do His will. “Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place. 
For now, I have chosen and sanctified this house, that My name may be there forever; and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually.” (Vs 15, 16)

He does not want His people to suffer. Therefore, He must do all that He can to pry us out of the hands of Satan, the Anti-Christ. He will not leave us or forsake us, but will bring both heaven and Earth against us until we turn around, and return from the path of destruction.

17 As for you, if you walk before Me as your father David walked, and do according to all that I have commanded you, and if you keep My statutes and My judgments, 
18 then I will establish the throne of your kingdom, as I covenanted with David your father, saying, ‘You shall not fail to have a man as ruler in Israel.’
19 “But if you turn away and forsake My statutes and My commandments which I have set before you, and go and serve other gods, and worship them, 
20 then I will uproot them from My land which I have given them; and this house which I have sanctified for My name I will cast out of My sight, and will make it a proverb and a byword among all peoples.
21 “And as for this house, which is exalted, everyone who passes by it will be astonished and say, ‘Why has the Lord done thus to this land and this house?’ 
22 Then they will answer, ‘Because they forsook the Lord God of their fathers, who brought them out of the land of Egypt, and embraced other gods, and worshiped them and served them; therefore, He has brought all this calamity on them.’”

What God tells Solomon, is also for His people, and for us.

We have driven this nation into a ditch, and it’s up to us to get it out!

 “Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted. 
Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch.” (Matthew 15:13, 14)

We must turn from our godless ways, putting away our adultery, and Idolatry, or continue to reap the whirlwind of His wrath. It’s not going to get better for us until we do.

Repent now, this very moment, and return to YHWH God.

Shalom my friends,

A strong tower.

Revelation 12:13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. 
14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. 
15 So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. 
16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 
17 And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Yahshua / Jesus Christ.

The Dragon is earth bound and now He will come against the assembly of true believers. Depicted here as the woman who gave birth to the male child. The Assembly is seen as the bearer of this male child, the strength of the Spirit that resides in all of us.

Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. (Vs 13)

So, the Assembly will retreat, into the wilderness during this time of persecution and will be given the means to flee from this terrible enemy who is pursuing them. Here she will find refuge from the persecution, food and shelter.

But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. (Vs 14)

There will be attempts to dislodge them, or to capture them, but they will elude those attempts. For it will be as if the earth has become a great fortress.

So, the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. 
But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. (Vs 15, 16)

There will be a manipulation of the weather so that water becomes a danger to us. A great deluge will be caused but will not dislodge the Assembly. Every attempt on the part of this enemy will fail.

And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Yahshua / Jesus Christ. (Vs 17)

This angered the enemy that much more, and now they will attempt to kill, rather than capture. Those who bear the testimony of Christ Yahshua are the enemy of this Satanic power. And already we can see the forces 0f good and evil as they are lining up in opposition to one another, and the taking of the mark seems to be the dividing line.

When Yahshua comes, He will find His bride waiting for Him, in this remnant.

We must understand that the struggle to overcome this evil is just beginning in earnest, many of us who have been influenced by the Holy Spirit have already prepared to depart and go into the wilderness. But understand that our power lies not in armed conflict, but in prayer.

Although the time may come when there will be a need to defend ourselves and others. And if that should occur then we need to know that we have a supernatural helper who will step in and fight with us to preserve the Assembly.

This will not be an easy time, it will be difficult, depending on how well prepared we are. So, if we consider ourselves a part of God’s chosen, then let’s prepare for this season of struggle.

Keep the Commandments of God, return to His Sabbath and feast days, pray without ceasing, and take shelter under His wings.

Proverbs 18:10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower; The righteous run to it and are safe.

The Father’s way, or the highway!

Deuteronomy 11:26 “Behold, I set before you today a blessing and a curse: 
27 the blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you today; 
28 and the curse, if you do not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside from the way which I command you today, to go after other gods which you have not known. 

This is the Word of YHWH God, and you and I can take it to the bank, for what He says is true and dependable. Unlike the words of men who cannot be relied upon, but by now, you should know that if you’re an adult human being.

Here He is giving us a choice to either trust Him and His Word, or to walk in this world according to our own predilections. We in other words, follow our own choices rather than His. 

He says, “Behold, I set before you today a blessing and a curse:” (Vs 26)

I don’t know about you my friends, but if I know that if there’s a choice, I would choose to be blessed. I want my prayers to be effective, and I want the gifts of the Spirit. And most of all, I want the creator of the Universe and everything in it to be my Father and my provider.

And what many of us do not know, is that when we choose contrary to YHWH God’s will, we have chosen to run head on into a brick wall of curses.

“the blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you today; and the curse, if you do not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside from the way which I command you today, to go after other gods which you have not known.” (Vs 27, 28)

We were created to be His Children, and what child is it that disobeys His Father? 

I can remember my daddy telling me that while I lived in his house, I would obey his rules. It is no different with Abba God the Father. It is His way, or the Highway!

And in His eyes when we have become disobedient to Him, that means that we have determined in our pea brain, that we can do better worshipping ourselves rather than YHWH God. We have become in His eyes idolators. Thus, we cut ourselves off from all of His blessings, and the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

He withholds these with but one purpose in mind, and that is to bring us back and restore the relationship.

John 15:10 “If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.”

All that is necessary to return to a full relationship with both the Father and the Son, is repentance and a resolve to walk in the way that He gave us.

Let’s do this, believing in Christ and following His ways, is how we turn our lives around.

Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. 
He who says, “I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 
But whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. 
He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked. (1st John 2:3-6)

How many ways must He say it?  Come home! Abba will heal you! Abba will bless you, and I will save your country! Is it not time to surrender to Him?

“If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2nd Chronicles 7:14) 

Shalom my friends,

The Ancient Paths.

Exodus 20:1 And YHWH / God spoke all these words, saying:
2 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 “You shall have no other gods before Me.
4 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image—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; 
5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, 
6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
7 “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
8 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 
9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 
10 but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 
11 For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore, the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
13 “You shall not murder.
14 “You shall not commit adultery.
15 “You shall not steal.
16 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”

This is spoken by our creator, not by some man, But by Him who was here before the earth was here. The creator of the entire Universe and everything in it. And the same exact Commandments were given also in the book of Deuteronomy, chapter 5.

These Ten Commandment are representative of YHWH God’s will for His people, and they are the conditions under which we become His people. This is His covenant with us, and everything that follows depends on our compliance with these ten righteous ordinances.

There are other commandments but these Ten are the very least we can do, and thus call ourselves His Children.

I have had several people who say that it’s too difficult to keep His Commandments, and that no one is capable of doing so. As if to say, that’s it is too hard to love God, with all of your heart, or to love your neighbor as yourself. When I hear that it’s impossible to do, I am astounded at the selfishness that emanates from those individuals.

“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.”
(Vs 2)

How difficult is it to put God first in out lives when we know and understand that He gives us life, His breath is in our lungs!

He redeems us from those who have enslaved us, and deliver’s us from our enemies. How difficult is it to love Him who has prepared our salvation by the giving of His Son?

Why in the world would we seek some other god?

Yet he says, “You shall have no other gods before Me.” (Vs 3)

We have made money our god, land, houses, jobs, cars, and forgotten Him and relegated Him to a subservient place in our pecking order of life. The God of our salvation, in many cases comes last, not first!

“You shall not make for yourself a carved image—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; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

Those things that we love more than YHWH God have become our idols, Right along with Santa Claus and Christmas trees, Easter eggs, ham, and all of the other trappings of Idol worshipers. We are given over to Idol worship, and most of us think nothing of it.

And what about Blasphemy, the misuse and misapplication of His holy name, to things that are not of God?

“You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.” (Vs 7)

When we apply His Holy name to Pagan traditions, like Christmas (Saturnalia), or Easter (Ishtar the Pagan goddess of fertility), or a Sabbath day that is not ordained of God, (Sunday is also Pagan.) Do we really think we are serving God by doing these things? Could it be that we just prefer the lies and deception of Satan, to opening the Word of God and learning the truth?

Why are these things so difficult for us? And then there’s the Sabbath day that was ordained ever since the 7th day of creation.

“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. 
Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. 
For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore, the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. (Vs 8-11)

This celebration of our creation by YHWH God is commanded by Him, yet we insist on the Pagan sabbath, Sunday is for those who bow down to the Sun God of Rome.

Nowhere can we find that YHWH God changed His Sabbath in the scriptures, and nowhere is Sunday as a day of rest established in the scriptures. Yet we have bought into the lie again. So much for loving YHWH God!

The remaining Six commandments are with regard to loving our neighbor.

“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
“You shall not murder.
“You shall not commit adultery.
“You shall not steal.
“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”          (Vs 12-17)

Why is it that these things are so difficult? Is it hard to not murder, steal or defraud, commit fornication, or lie?

I submit that many of us are in serious trouble, because when Christ comes to judge, He will judge according to these Commandments. This time is drawing very near now. And we will insist that he is wrong? Are we going to tell Christ Yahshua that we thought He took away the Commandments at the cross? Are we insane? There will be no argument based on doctrine, at the time of judgment, there will only be the truth Just as it was given, according to the Word of God.

You can continue to walk in disobedience to the Word of YHWH God if you want, I know that many will, and they will die instantly. But know this, The Bible gives us the truth, and if we don’t know it, it’s because we have not tested it.

Our eternal life is in our own hands. We can self-destruct if we want, or we can humble ourselves before a just and righteous God. I am not going to say it’s your choice, because you have already chosen.

Repent and return to the Ancient Path!

Thus, says the Lord: “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls.

But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’” (Jeremiah 6:16)

Shalom my Friends,
