We all come into this world the same way, from the womb of a woman with nothing on but what Yahweh (God) gave us. If we are blessed to have parents that love us then we are taken care of. Parents that love their children do what they can to provide for them. These days there has been one big lie that evil pushes above all lies. It is that we should put our child first and in this we teach our children to become subconsciously full of pride. When they start to become old enough to understand that the world is not all about them they become defeated from the inside out. It then rejects all the things they have been taught when we make everything out to be about them. Don’t get me wrong, when you love your children you have to be a positive role in their lives for them to become healthy from the inside out. What most fail to see though is that being positive does not consist of what material things we can provide our children as to keep them happy. I personally was so guilty of this when my children were young. I thought if only I can give them the latest things that I never had when I was a child then they will be happy. I had children between the ages of 22 and 25. I was still a child in so many ways mentally, and spiritually. I was a baby spiritually stuck crying from the inside out. I had made so many mistakes in trying to find what it was that would make me happy. Drugs, Alcohol, sex, and money was all leaving me void inside as I was so broken. It didn’t seem as if I could break the cycle. I would do my best to work and provide for my family as I had two step sons as well as two biological children with my wife.
We all make mistakes in life and we all get persuaded by the culture around us. T.V., music, and what is taught to us is all part of what imprints our minds. Even what other children around us do can teach us what is right or wrong in life. As parents, we are learning to become parents as we get older the same as when we were children we were learning to become what the world says is normal. Young children can be molded by the things they see, hear, and witness first hand. What most don’t realize is that we as parents are just as broken as the children we raise most times. The only difference between children and adults is that adults have grew into the lies that we have taught ourselves to accept, and children usually have no filter as they speak their minds. Then instead of allowing them to speak their minds we sur-press it due to the term being politically correct. Truth is truth and a lot of times we don’t allow truth to be spoken due to hurting others feelings. What about truth and what it does to the reality of truth. If you’re like me then you have made many mistakes in life and by trying to hide the truth due to embarrassment we create a false truth so that we feel better about what we were taught to sur-press. The sad thing is that over time we build walls in our hearts and we create more problems by making more problems to try and hide the original problems in life.
The Christian’s Walk
17 So this I say, and affirm together with the Lord, that you walk no longer just as the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind,
18 being darkened in their understanding, excluded from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the hardness of their heart;
19 and they, having become callous, have given themselves over to sensuality for the practice of every kind of impurity with greediness.
20 But you did not learn Christ in this way,
21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus,
22 that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit,
23 and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind,
24 and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.
25 Therefore, laying aside falsehood, speak truth each one of you with his neighbor, for we are members of one another.
26 Be angry, and yet do not sin; do not let the sun go down on your anger,
27 and do not give the devil an opportunity.
28 He who steals must steal no longer; but rather he must labor, performing with his own hands what is good, so that he will have something to share with one who has need.
29 Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear.
30 Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
31 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.
32 Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.
When we are blessed to hear the Gospel (good news) that Yeshua (Jesus) brought the world, then most of us will hear it but due to have being taught to hide the truth we shy away inside from the only truth that can set us free from the lies of the evil culture that surrounds us. The very things that Jesus died to defeat for us we stay stuck bound in it because we still think it is about us. Jesus teaches us we have to die to us, no matter what you have done it can be forgiven. We then think to ourselves “this is too good to be true, maybe this applies to the one next to me, but if they only knew what I did”. It is sad really because nothing has changed in the world other than what we see around us. Material things have gotten more complex and mind controlling but it all boils down to three things that all mankind has battled since the beginning of time.
Christ Is Our Advocate
1 My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous;
2 and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.
3 By this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments.
4 The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him;
5 but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him:
6 the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked.
7 Beloved, I am not writing a new commandment to you, but an old commandment which you have had from the beginning; the old commandment is the word which you have heard.
8 On the other hand, I am writing a new commandment to you, which is true in Him and in you, because the darkness is passing away and the true Light is already shining.
9 The one who says he is in the Light and yet hates his brother is in the darkness until now.
10 The one who loves his brother abides in the Light and there is no cause for stumbling in him.
11 But the one who hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded his eyes.
12 I am writing to you, little children, because your sins have been forgiven you for His name’s sake.
13 I am writing to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I have written to you, children, because you know the Father.
14 I have written to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one.
Do Not Love the World
15 Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.
17 The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.
18 Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour.
19 They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us.
20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all know.
21 I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it, and because no lie is of the truth.
22 Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son.
23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father; the one who confesses the Son has the Father also.
24 As for you, let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father.
The Promise Is Eternal Life
25 This is the promise which He Himself made to us: eternal life.
26 These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you.
27 As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.
28 Now, little children, abide in Him, so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not shrink away from Him in shame at His coming.
29 If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone also who practices righteousness is born of Him.
Gentile means "one without God" and that is us without believing in the one God gave the world. Jesus left the world with two commandments that sum up all commandments! Love Yahweh (God) the only God with all your heart, and then love one another the way Christ loved us! Look at what Paul told us again in Ephesians 4:25-28. Then ask yourself how many times have you buried the truth inside just to save others, but in reality you were speaking falsehood and allowing it all to be a win for the evil one. Before you know it you have all kinds of truth buried in you, some good and some bad. It doesn’t matter what the truth it is it can be given to the one who died to be the truth that defeats all the lies you have been taught to accept as truth. Look at verse 16 again in 1 John chapter 2! The lust of the flesh is wanting to feed sexual desires and lies of wants that we think will make us happy such as food, and now drugs, etc... The lust of the eyes is what gets these things started when we don’t understand the love of God. Then if we have been taught that the world is about us and what we want then pride sets in. It then slowly keeps us from humbling ourselves to see our mistakes for what they truly are, mistakes that we can be forgiven of when we come to the grace of Yahweh through His Son Yeshua. This has always plagued mankind so don’t think we are any different. The schemes in which the evil has made now are just so much more blended in. Take a look around you people. Mainstream T.V. pumps sex, drugs, and the love of money right into the homes of people. Social media displays the lives of people as they paint portraits of how great their lives are but in reality the majority are falling apart behind the scenes due to the pride they can’t put down.
Man has never created anything people, we have just made things from what the living God, Yahweh, has given us. We are surrounded by the pride and ego of mankind as we have more things being made now than ever. Each company that makes something usually makes manuals for each product that they sell. This allows the people who buy their products to understand how it all works. Our creator has been so gracious and merciful to have spoken through men/women throughout time so as to keep the words from Yahweh safe in ways you could never even dream of. This is the manual called the Bible and while there are so many debates about this book, the one thing you can count on is that the life of Yeshua (Jesus) is the only truth that can start your road to being whole and healthy. God gave us all the answers in the words He spoke to mankind. There are so many versions now but it is not the written words that set us free people, it is the spoken words that Yahweh confirms in you. If you want answers then cry out to Him. If you want truth then cry out to Him. If you want peace then understand the only real peace comes from the Prince of Peace-Jesus. The politics of religions and the do’s and don’ts are all bullshit. Every single person alive has some kind of mistake we have made and in the eyes of Yahweh (God) we are all broken due to these mistakes better known as sins. Sin once again means “to miss the mark”. The Hebrew word Torah is what we know as the “Old Testaments” and Testaments are words of the witnesses that have testified to the truth they witnessed. Torah really means “To aim for”. See we all have things we have been taught, and we all are looking for the truth. No person that has ever lived has aimed for the mark of the living God and hit it besides one man. He was the humble, loving, and obedient Son of Yahweh that forever broke the hold that evil has on us only if we choose to believe in Him. The moment we choose to believe we can be set free from all the lies and mistakes we have made due to being misled from the evil in this world. Look People, even the greatest parents alive will let you down because they are just as broken as the next. They might not have done drugs or have been sexually active before marriage, or have loved money, but something in them has fell short of the laws of Yahweh. In the eyes of the living God it is all the same. This is why Yahweh sent His word to become flesh and it came to life in Jesus. Jesus taught the world the real truth of what God desires.
9 As Jesus went on from there, He saw a man called Matthew, sitting in the tax collector’s booth; and He *said to him, “Follow Me!” And he got up and followed Him.
10 Then it happened that as Jesus was reclining at the table in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and were dining with Jesus and His disciples.
11 When the Pharisees saw this, they said to His disciples, “Why is your Teacher eating with the tax collectors and sinners?”
12 But when Jesus heard this, He said, “It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick.
13 “But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire compassion, and not sacrifice,’ for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
God never wanted us to become a slave to the laws of man, He intended for us to understand His love that never ends. Why do you think that is what each one of us long for from the inside?
7 “But if you had known what this means, ‘I desire compassion, and not a sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the innocent.
6 For I delight in loyalty rather than sacrifice,
And in the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.
The love of Yahweh, the one and only living God, is simple we have learned to complicate it. The evil has been there persuading mankind all along with lies and half-truths. This is why God gave us the real truth for those who want to hear it. The only problem is that it all comes back down to you! Yes you and you alone are the only one who can make this choice to believe. It can't be a pastor, your parents, or any one you know. You have to allow the Spirit of Yahweh to come into your heart. This means that you ask Him for forgiveness through His Son Jesus. If you leave Jesus out of it then you are going to be just as stuck in the lies as before if not greater. We cannot make God out to be some genie in the sky that fits what we want Him to be. It is simple really, let go of what you have been holding on to inside! All the mistakes, all the unforgiveness, all the pain and hurt can be dropped at the cross of Calvary. We then can begin to learn from the greatest teacher of all time- Yeshua the Christ (anointed one) of the living God. The words that are written are only a door to hear the voice of God. Start in the book of John to experience the real love of Jesus and the Father. Then read the book of Matthew to understand the steps of forgiveness and how to walk with your teacher. It lays out everything you need the only thing you need to do is bring your hurt and pain with an open heart. I guarantee you will not be disappointed! You have to be patient though because in this impatient world we only cause more problems for ourselves by being impatient. The day will come when all you know is truth and love! Then go tell others of what you have found! It is free and it is for everyone. Jesus told us these words!!!!!!!!!!!
10 “He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much.
This is pertaining to the knowledge you receive, not money! When you are finished with reading this tell others. Tell them what can set them free. Then be ready to read the word of the living God and His Christ and watch what happens. Suddenly what seemed to not make since starts to become clear to you. Then go tell others of what you have been taught directly from the living God through His words. The written words are just the door! The one who opens the door is Yahweh. The key hole is now Jesus! If He sees your heart and how you want the real truth then He will open the door. This allows the true mysteries to be kept for only the humble and meek.
Come to Me
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 means "to be at ease" and anything away from ease is a "dis" "ease". It isn't rocket science on why this world is so full of diseases people! The ones you see making all these laws around the world have no clue that they are not in control. Yahweh is always in control and Jesus knew this as He wants to teach you the truth. The world you see is what happens when God takes His hand off the world and when we reject Him and His Christ. Jesus is the way and if you allow Him to have your heart He will lead you to the destination, the presence of Yahweh. You will still have problems and you will still have baggage but if you stay faithful to the Kingdom of God then God will take a little bit away with each act of faith you do. Tell the world around you that you have heard the good news! Tell them there is a way to be truly joyful no matter what storm hits you in life. The world you see can’t change, only your heart can change then how you approach this broken world allows others around you to want what you have. The calm collective joy and peace of mind that teaches you that God does have your back. None of the lies that you have learned or told yourself even mattered to begin with. This my brothers and sisters is the only way to achieve peace and it is simple because it starts in each one of our hearts. Everyone will scream they want change, but no one wants to change. Change your heart by letting the one who made your heart have your heart and your life will never be the same, now and for eternity! May Yahweh Bless you all and send His Christ (anointed one) to guide your steps!!!!!!!!!! Listen to “I’ll keep on” by NF and keep on!
