Ezekiel 36:26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.
27 I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them.
28 Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God.
Several years ago, Yahshua / Jesus gave me a vision. And what I saw was a cross that was golden, and covered in precious stones, diamonds, rubies, emeralds. It was beautiful, and then it just vanished. This cross was the most valuable thing I had ever laid eyes on, truly a million-dollar cross.
But as it turned out it wasn’t about the dollar value, this cross had another meaning altogether, as I would soon find out.
After I had viewed this cross, I laid down to go to sleep, and in my sleep Yahshua / Jesus revealed to me the meaning behind my vision. He said that he had been calling me to the ministry for years and I refused to come, because I wanted to make my first million first. He then told that it would never happen that I would be successful financially.
At the time I had two computer stores that were failing, so what I was being told by my Savior rang very true. It seemed that no matter what I did or how hard I worked, it just would not help. But what was worse was the notion that I had turned away from serving my savior for such a worldly notion. I woke up in tears, ashamed of what I had done.
I told Him then, crying like a baby, that I would never say “No” to Him again. And at that moment he did something to me that is spoken of in this scripture. He reached His hand into my chest and removed my old hard heart, and replaced it with a brand new one made of flesh and crammed full of His love and compassion.
For a time after that I couldn’t speak of what had happened to me at the hand of my king, because when I thought of it, I would be reduced to tears again. Even now, over 20 years later, as I write these words tears are forming in my eyes.
Speaking through the Prophet Ezekiel, He says, “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.” (Vs 26)
I can surely affirm the truth of this word because I have personally experienced it. But it was only after I surrendered that he did this to me. HallaluYAH! And as it turned out that beautiful cross was for me, and I would earn it.
And what comes next?
“I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them.” (Vs 27)
It took some time, but he led me away from the traditional church setting. I began witnessing to people on the street, in a wonderful and very powerful way, asking them if they had kept the Commandments of God, had they sinned by lying, stealing, adultery, etc.
He then brought to my attention that I was not keeping the Commandments myself, because I was violating the 4th Commandment. Not keeping His Sabbath!
So, I began to follow His instructions to keep His Sabbath, meeting on Saturdays with a few friends. We shared a meal and opened the scriptures. I was beginning to realize that what I was led to do, I was to return to my Hebrew roots, and the church as it was in Acts, before the Roman Catholic Church got involved.
“Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God.” (Vs 28)
It wasn’t long after this that He told me in a dream that I would be moving to Tennessee from Virginia.
I arrived in Tennessee 3 years later. Where he placed me under a wonderful teacher. And my eyes were opened to many things that tied it all together. But still, I am not through with my travels. He is Moving me again, this time for what, I don’t yet know. But regardless of where or what I am called to do, I look forward to being led by His Holy Spirit even into the Jaws of hell itself.
For I have received a new heart, filled to overflowing with love for those who are searching for the truth.
I am here for that purpose, to call them out of the darkness, and into the light of the truth.
Psalms 119:142 Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and Your law is truth.
Shalom my friends,
What happened to me is a clear indication that he can’t use us until we are broken before Him, and surrendered to His will.
Ask Yahshua to show you, you’re calling, and be prepared for what may come!
