To get to know anyone you first have to engage in the actions that do so! Talking is one way but for many we have a hard time talking to someone we cannot see! This is why we need to have faith that when we do pray or talk to Yahweh (God) then the faith produces results that we can see.
1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
We have to realize that we can be told about people, and we can read about people but unless you actually meet that person then you will never know the depths of one’s true character. In the blog prior to this one, “Do you know who really loves you?” I was blessed to help people understand what Yeshua (Jesus) did for all mankind! Now people can be told about the person of Jesus, and they can read about Jesus, but unless you give your heart to Jesus then you will only have a head full of knowledge from the world’s view. Jesus didn’t die on that cross so we could feel better about our lives. He died so that we could truly have eternal life! To become a follower of Christ doesn’t mean your problems fade away, it means that we have access to the understanding of all our problems. To pick up the word of Yahweh without first understanding what Jesus did for us only leaves you guessing to the whole of it all. This is why Jesus told us this.
1 “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.
2 “In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.
3 “If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.
4 “And you know the way where I am going.”
5 Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?”
6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
The door to Heaven was closed due to the sin of the world! This is why Yahweh is Holy! Holy means “set apart” and because the fallen angels chose to defy the character of Yahweh, they were cast out of the third Heaven! Out of anger that we were created, the evil persuaded Adam, through the woman he loved, that we would not surly die!
1 Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, “Indeed, has God said, ‘You shall not eat from any tree of the garden’?”
2 The woman said to the serpent, “From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat;
3 but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die.’ ”
4 The serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die!
5 “For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
6 When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate.
7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings.
8 They heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God among the trees of the garden.
9 Then the Lord God called to the man, and said to him, “Where are you?”
10 He said, “I heard the sound of You in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself.”
11 And He said, “Who told you that you were naked? Have you eaten from the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?”
12 The man said, “The woman whom You gave to be with me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate.”
13 Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” And the woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”
14 The Lord God said to the serpent,
“Because you have done this,
Cursed are you more than all cattle,
And more than every beast of the field;
On your belly you will go,
And dust you will eat
All the days of your life;
What does any loving father do when children run and hide after knowing they have done wrong? See for us after the fall we have to teach our children to be good, because they will do bad things without any help, right? For Adam and the woman they knew only good things but when their eyes were opened to the evil they were automatically convicted inside! So when they then knew right from wrong they went to hide as this is natural for children to do so! God’s love is constantly looking for us and it is inside of our shame and guilt that we will run from this love! We are taught that we can grow up and be our own person. We are taught that we can become an adult and in this we are taught to form a pride inside that slowly tares us apart from the inside out. Instead of admitting we are wrong we just point fingers like Adam and the woman did above! Look how things have never changed! Well she made me do it, and she said well the serpent made me do it! Once again death means “Separation” and this is truly the separation from the one who created us. Why do you think Jesus told us these words?
18 Now when Jesus saw a crowd around Him, He gave orders to depart to the other side of the sea.
19 Then a scribe came and said to Him, “Teacher, I will follow You wherever You go.”
20 Jesus said to him, “The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.”
21 Another of the disciples said to Him, “Lord, permit me first to go and bury my father.”
22 But Jesus said to him, “Follow Me, and allow the dead to bury their own dead.”
23 When He got into the boat, His disciples followed Him.
24 And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being covered with the waves; but Jesus Himself was asleep.
25 And they came to Him and woke Him, saying, “Save us, Lord; we are perishing!”
26 He said to them, “Why are you afraid, you men of little faith?” Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and it became perfectly calm.
27 The men were amazed, and said, “What kind of a man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?”
Jesus was in this world physically, but spiritually He was not because He longed for the love of His father. They say home is where the heart is so this is why we all are honestly misplaced without the truth! The scribe was part of a long line of men who religiously kept the words of Yahweh written down so that the world would know the truth. Jesus told that man that the dead could bury the dead. That is because we are all spiritually dead without being born again. The law was given in the Old Testament so that it could show the whole world one day that we are all guilty. Ask yourself these things? Have you lied, looked at another woman/man with lust, stolen something, not rested on the Sabbath, or put Gods in front of the living God? This is just a few examples of thousands that apply to the law. To keep the law means that we have to keep all of it and if you break one law, then you are guilty! This is why the Israelites would make sacrifices to Yahweh but the blood of animals would never atone for the sins of man. Why?
1 The Pharisees and some of the scribes gathered around Him when they had come from Jerusalem,
2 and had seen that some of His disciples were eating their bread with impure hands, that is, unwashed.
3 (For the Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they carefully wash their hands, thus observing the traditions of the elders;
4 and when they come from the market place, they do not eat unless they cleanse themselves; and there are many other things which they have received in order to observe, such as the washing of cups and pitchers and copper pots.)
5 The Pharisees and the scribes asked Him, “Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat their bread with impure hands?”
6 And He said to them, “Rightly did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written:
‘This people honors Me with their lips,
But their heart is far away from Me.
7 ‘But in vain do they worship Me,
Teaching as doctrines the precepts of men.’
8 “Neglecting the commandment of God, you hold to the tradition of men.”
9 He was also saying to them, “You are experts at setting aside the commandment of God in order to keep your tradition.
10 “For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, ‘He who speaks evil of father or mother, is to be put to death’;
11 but you say, ‘If a man says to his father or his mother, whatever I have that would help you is Corban (that is to say, given to God),’
12 you no longer permit him to do anything for his father or his mother;
13 thus invalidating the word of God by your tradition which you have handed down; and you do many things such as that.”
Jesus was born to show the world that the traditions of men can be heartless and the heart is the one thing that Yahweh wants. Yahweh loves us all so much that He allowed the only begotten son He ever had to be the sacrifice for all of us. Begotten in the Greek means “the first genes” and Jesus was the first and last sacrifice that would ever atone for sins. So we are told of the Gospel! Gospel means “good news” and we should embrace this good news with our hearts! We have to first hear the good news, then make the choice to believe this with our own heart! We cannot expect the faith of others to be enough for us to make it to heaven. This is why all the disciples went out as far as they could to tell the world around them of this good news. To be born in the physical comes by the womb of a woman, one way into this world! To be born again in the spirit comes by believing in the Christ (anointed one) of the living God, one way into heaven! The evil of this world wants us to believe otherwise so that we will build pride and miss the truth! Just go seek the heart of Jesus and when you do this it allows you to prove your heart to Him and His Father who is the creator of all things. Start with the words that Jesus spoke and get to know your savior. Then through the Holy Spirit Jesus can teach you all about the God that He serves. This is the real truth and the only truth that can set you free! It is of evil that we are told that there are other religions. Religion truly means “what one believes to be right”. So look at the irony of that here in America! We are a mess because we have strayed from the real foundation that the fore fathers fought for! Look at the words of Jesus’s half-brother James!
27 Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
The word religion is only used a hand full of times in the words that Yahweh and His Son gave the world. You can see here that James tells us there is only one thing that is right in the eyes of Yahweh, and that is to care for women and children! Why? This is because if the word of Yahweh is truly followed then the men live by it, and they love their children and spouse by it. This means that the man is the strength of the family teaching the truth, the living truth to His family. If the man leaves this world then it is up to the faithful following (church) to care for the family of that man. This allows the vulnerable to still be protected by others who are in the presence of the living God. To deny this leaves them subjected to the world and the world is still in the hands of evil if you haven’t noticed. The devil and his goons are real why do you think Jesus was constantly addressing this issue?
2 in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience.
These are words from Paul who was Saul! Saul was responsible for killing the followers of the Christ up until Jesus was sent from Yahweh to meet Him on the road to Damascus. Read Acts chapter 9 to understand this! The truth is there for all of us to get to know the living God through the Son who sits at the right hand of Yahweh waiting patiently to come for His bride. Picture it this way? If you were a prisoner of war, wouldn’t you want to be rescued? The spiritual war is raging around us people and the fallen angels have blended in ever since the flood took place thousands of years ago. What you see is not reality, it is a shadow of the reality that is the spiritual! Evil has taken our minds hostage in these end days so that we will continue to seek what we can see, all the while inside of each one of us we fall apart. We all long for the truth and the further we get into the things of the world the further we get away from the truth! The greatest Nations that have ever existed in time have always rose to power by slowly pursuing war. The best way to win wars is to not let your enemy even realize that they are at war! This is of evil and if you think that it isn’t just look at how the Muslims throughout time have succeeded in the ways they have taken out Nations. This is what evil has always done to humanity and the answer to the evil is Yeshua (Jesus). The only one that can save you is Jesus and when you choose to take His hand then He will lead you back to the presence of the one who has loved us all along, Yahweh (God). This is truth and when you embrace it in your heart then your life will change. Remember that the enemy will attack you because they want you to give up, they want you to take the easy way which is falling for the empty promises they give. This is why our country is such a mess. Those who are of evil have been making empty promises so that they can pursue their own selfish desires. Some of them know that they pledge allegiance to satan and others have no idea. Either way we have to realize that getting to know Yahweh and His Christ is the only way to fight this evil. We can do nothing without the help of Heaven. Trump is being used by Yahweh for a time such as this, but even Trump can’t save us! Only our hearts turned to God through Jesus on a personal level can change what happens! Look through the word of God and study it, let it sink in to your heart. The peace that comes with it will overwhelm you and then truth will stand out in all things. Don’t turn your eyes from the evil! We are supposed to face the evil in the name of Yeshua (Jesus) and stand firm in the standards that Yahweh (God) gave us so that life can flourish. The prayer Jesus gave us tells us so much!
6 “But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.
7 “And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words.
8 “So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.
9 “Pray, then, in this way:
‘Our Father who is in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
10 ‘Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
11 ‘Give us this day our daily bread.
12 ‘And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 ‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. [For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.]’
14 “For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
15 “But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.
Hallowed means Holy, so set apart is our God and His Christ who is Jesus the savior of the world. We have to believe every part of the word of Yahweh and His Christ or we leave our hearts open to the deception of the world. If you say you believe in Jesus, then you have to believe in satan. If you believe in satan then you have to believe in Jesus! If you believe in either one of those then you have to believe in the God that created both!
16 “Behold, I Myself have created the smith who blows the fire of coals
And brings out a weapon for its work;
And I have created the destroyer to ruin.
17 “No weapon that is formed against you will prosper;
And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their vindication is from Me,” declares the Lord.
God tells us all we need to know in the words He gave us through His faithful servants. Yahweh has created every single bit of everything! Yahweh is in control of all, over all circumstances. In this though He gave us the true Liberty of free will so that we can learn how to become in His image. This is what the fore fathers of this great Nation knew to be true. Even Sir. Isaac Newton the great British inventor knew the glory of the living God. The evil of this world will emphasize the things Isaac did and totally leave out that all he did, he did for the glory of the living God. We will all see Yahweh in a different light, but without the light of the world we can’t see Him at all. Jesus loves you and will never let you down and this love comes from God. Look at the reality of this verse!
25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants.
26 “Yes, Father, for this way was well-pleasing in Your sight.
27 “All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.
28 “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.
29 “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
30 “For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
Rest in the Greek meant “to be at ease” so anything away from ease is a “dis” “ease”. The world is diseased without the truth of what Jesus did. The further we get away from this truth the more the world is filled with the diseases of evil. The cure for all things starts with Jesus and the Father that loves us all more than we could ever imagine. Train your minds to open so that you can dwell on the love of God, not dwelling on what we did right or wrong in this life. Get rid of the music, T.V., and anything else that is driving your heart away from the one who can heal your heart. Listen to music like “show me your glory” by third day or songs from “Mercy me” the band. It will begin to open your mind, then you can let go of your pride so that you will dwell on the truth of Jesus. When we dwell on these things then the truth sinks into our hearts. Think about it for a few minutes! What have you dwelled on in your life? Money, jobs, acceptance from others, or just day dream about all this world has to offer? These things sink into our hearts when we dwell on them and then evil feeds off of our actions we then create as we seek these lies. You will reach goals and then when that goal is just as empty as the place you were to begin with you will hear “Well now if I could just get this or that then I will be happy” and in these lies we are left seeking one lie after the next. When we put our hope and standards of our joy in the people or things around us, soon these things fall apart and we then pursue drugs, or things of this nature to fill that hole where our pain is. This is just more lies as the evil beats us down from the outside in. We will not want to live from the inside out because inside we hurt and we don’t understand why these things have happened. See when shit hits the fan we will then turn our eyes to God but only usually to blame Him for our problems as if He caused them. How is it fair to blame the one we choose to deny the whole time, and how is it fair to put Him in the center of the problems that the evil has caused. When we do this it makes evil so happy and further confuses the real truth of it all. Most want to pray to God when we are dying inside or of something physical and then when God shows up we just blow Him off like we don’t need Him anymore. God hurts too you know, and the pain He has never once builds walls in His heart for you, so why do we allow this to do that to Him? Easy answer! It is the evil that takes our hearts away from Him and builds walls so that we will seek the truth in the world and not the word! I use to turn to Meth, and Alcohol when I wanted to run from my pain. Now I turn to the one who can truly make since of it all. God wants us to know the truth and not just some watered down version that makes us feel better on Sundays. He wants you to know we are at war and that we can find refuge from it all right where we stand. Broken, hurt, and full of the shame we have acquired while being deceived by the evil. We were told by Paul that these days would come!
2 Timothy chapter3 & 4:1-8
“Difficult Times Will Come”
1 But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.
2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,
3 unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good,
4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
5 holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these.
6 For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak women weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses,
7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men of depraved mind, rejected in regard to the faith.
9 But they will not make further progress; for their folly will be obvious to all, just as Jannes’s and Jambres’s folly was also.
10 Now you followed my teaching, conduct, purpose, faith, patience, love, perseverance,
11 persecutions, and sufferings, such as happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium and at Lystra; what persecutions I endured, and out of them all the Lord rescued me!
12 Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
13 But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.
14 You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them,
15 and that from childhood you have known the sacred writings which are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;
17 so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
“Preach the Word”
1 I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom:
2 preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires,
4 and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.
5 But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.
6 For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure has come.
7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith;
8 in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing.
Does this honestly ring a bell in you? Lovers of themselves (selfies, Facebook, etc.) Read this over and over to let it sink in. We are in the days just prior to the return of Yeshua (Jesus) the Christ (anointed one) of the living God. The world was ordained to get this bad because we are so damn stubborn as human beings. We were mage as beings, not doers! To be in the state of being that will always come through we have to know the one who created this state of being. Jesus will teach you everything you need to know to obtain this and He will never let go. The yoke spoke of in Matthew 11:25-30 represents that which is used to put on oxen. The wooden thing that pairs them up for plowing. The strength of two is better than one and with the truth of Jesus, He will never take His side off, and He will never stop plowing for you. This is when the Holy Spirit starts to burn off the old you a little at a time. What good would it be to take all your problems and addictions at once? This would be no good for building faith! We would turn around and walk right back into the very world that was killing us to begin with! Let go of you and die to the evil ways you have adopted! Begin to live a life that will expose the evil for what it truly is! Then you can fight against it instead of for it. The battles of the war have already been addressed through Jesus! The war is about to come to the end and the only question you have to ask yourself is, whose side am I really on? I hope these words that Yahweh has given me can help you seek the real truth, the real way, and the only life that matters! I can guarantee it won’t be easy but you will come out victorious because the victory has already been obtained through the blood of Jesus the Christ. So many will use the excuse that they don’t have time, and that is of evil persuasion! Just ask yourself what would have happened if Jesus would had said He didn’t have the time? What if Jesus had told Himself “I don’t have time to sacrifice my life here on earth to save all of mankind, and I certainly don’t have time to be beaten to a bloody pulp only to then be crowned with a crown of thorns so that they can then take me to die the most horrible death ever known to man. It will be so inconvenient to hang in agony excused of crimes I did not commit so that the world will know the real truth. Why me?”
People this is real and you can go look up all the evidence you want! Biblical, non-biblical, Historical, archeological, etc... It is all being displayed for the world to see before Yahweh gives Jesus the go. My prayer to my God through His Christ is that you will truly seek Him as time is coming to a close. You can tell yourself this is bullshit, or that I am crazy for writing such things, but the truth is, the truth can never be changed. Just because you choose to deny the truth in your own life doesn’t change the fact that it is true. My heart belongs to Yahweh and Jesus because I know they show up in my life and I know that the Holy Spirit will show up with these words. No matter what though you have to make the choice to let them in your heart. Not one person on this earth can do that for you, but you! May Yahweh Bless you all and His Christ guide your steps!
