The word response means to react to something either physically, verbally, or in the form of a written response! The word ability means to possess the means or skills to do something as it is wrapped up in a talent or skill we obtain by a teaching or learning as we go through life! We are told that children are a responsibility when we become parents! This is not an easy task because we all go into being a parent with no proper training or skills other that which we acquired from our parents! The will of the living God was and is to create us in His image! This is so powerful but on the other side of this there is a truth that most choose to deny or just flat out ignore! It is the evil that the fallen angels pursue in this world. This is not a joke and it is just as real as the love that Yeshua (Jesus) showed the whole world when He died on that cross at Calvary! The greatest part of the life of Jesus is that He still lives! If He was just some random man that died a horrible death at the cross then He would have been contained to that grave! The truth is that Jesus rose from that grave and defeated death and that my friends didn’t come easy! The life of Jesus was amazing in every way but many fail to realize that there are so many things that we don’t see or hear about! The ability to respond to evil for Jesus was taught to Him from the one who created all things, His Father, Yahweh (God)! Look what Yahweh tells us through Isaiah!
13 “All your sons will be taught of the Lord;
And the well-being of your sons will be great.
14 “In righteousness you will be established;
You will be far from oppression, for you will not fear;
And from terror, for it will not come near you.
15 “If anyone fiercely assails you it will not be from Me.
Whoever assails you will fall because of you.
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.
So many people have been taught the prosperity Gospel (good news) of Jesus the Christ (anointed one). The sad news about this all is that while they hear of how great Jesus is and what He did for us, they leave out the most important part of it all! We are at war people and that war is raging around all of us! Look at the way Yahweh (God) told the prophet that if they were to stay in the teaching of the living God their Sons would be great! Jesus was born with the same word that formed the universe! In a single (uni), spoken sentence (verse), Jesus was breathed into the womb of a woman named Mary! The life of Jesus started in the most shameful way in the eyes of mankind, but in the eyes of the living God, His Father, it was beauty to behold! These days we are so blinded by the deception of evil that the average person has no clue that they are being taught the ability to respond to things in the way the world does, not the way the word of God does! How can we ever expect to succeed in the word if we listen to the world, and not the word of the one who created the world! We can clearly see that Yahweh tells us that He is the one who creates, the one who makes the weapons! The average church will tell you of Jesus and all the while paint pictures of how great there life is! Jesus is great and because of Him we have direct access to God again! What was lost in the first garden, was gained in the Garden of Gethsemane!
20 Now a mediator is not for one party only; whereas God is only one.
1 Timothy 2:5
5 For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,
So many people fail to realize that Jesus was taught via the Holy (set apart) Spirit from the time He was born until the day he ascended to Heaven. The word of God descended to the world unlike it ever had before. Everything you see has a talent or skill for which it was made. Trees, water, rocks, etc. all have that which they were created to obtain for the purpose Yahweh needed them to be!
9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
10 “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
And do not return there without watering the earth
And making it bear and sprout,
And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater;
11 So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth;
It will not return to Me empty,
Without accomplishing what I desire,
And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
They were all formed by the word of God and the only person to ever come from the word of God and the womb of a woman is Yeshua (Jesus) of Nazareth. This was to fulfill the prophecies and to truly bring the real truth of who Yahweh is to the whole world! Now in order to understand how we were supposed to function as human beings we were given the instructions from Yahweh through mankind, better known as the Bible! The ability to respond to evil had to be taught to Jesus because up until Jesus the majority of mankind kept falling for the deception of evil. Before the flood it was so horrific that Yahweh was ready to give up on us until He found Faith in one man, Noah! The plan for a savior was always there as the plan of Yahweh was always to create us in His image, but also to create a family that is embraced in the love and ability to respond to each other with selflessness that is above all amazing in so many ways! We can see what evil has done first hand here in America and across the world in abortion, gay marriage, hatred, wars, judgements of all kinds, and flat out just evil of all kinds! It is so in our faces now that the sad thing is so many think that hate and depression is just normal. People then turn to the so called scholars of our time for the answers when all that does is get us hooked on some kind of pill or introduces us to some support group that will later make us want to use drugs after we hear of all the bad things that have been told to us! If we are not taught to be rooted in the one who created roots, then we will never grow roots! It is just the deception of evil that wraps itself in money, jobs, acceptance, false love, and so much more that will soon destroy us from the inside out! Jesus loves us all because He was taught directly from the one who loves us all!
46 “Why do you call Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?
47 “Everyone who comes to Me and hears My words and acts on them, I will show you whom he is like:
48 he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock; and when a flood occurred, the torrent burst against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built.
49 “But the one who has heard and has not acted accordingly, is like a man who built a house on the ground without any foundation; and the torrent burst against it and immediately it collapsed, and the ruin of that house was great.”
In the word of God we have in English we are taught the word Lord! This word means “one with authority” and was used by the English for the highest people of their society! In the word of God the people who translated it used "LORD" all capital letters to reference when the living God was speaking! This is not taught to many people and so people confuse the fact that Yahweh was separate from the term Lord used for Jesus! Jesus was handed all authority from Yahweh when he defeated death and now sits at the right hand of the living God because of the way Jesus chose to respond to all things!
1 Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.
2 Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves.
3 For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior, but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good and you will have praise from the same;
4 for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil, be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for nothing; for it is a minister of God, an avenger who brings wrath on the one who practices evil.
The Nation we know as America based its laws and constitution off of mankind loving one another under the authority of the living God and the teachings that came from Yahweh’s Christ (anointed one) who was and will forever be Yeshua (Jesus). The Lordship or authority is all in His hands now. Due to Jesus being taught all things of good and evil, Jesus then responded in a way that created the perfect sacrifice. Under the law that God gave Moses the standards were impossible for mankind to keep! Why? It was a shadow of what was to come in the life of the Christ!
36 While they were telling these things, He Himself stood in their midst and said to them, “Peace be to you.”
37 But they were startled and frightened and thought that they were seeing a spirit.
38 And He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts?
39 “See My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself; touch Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.”
40 And when He had said this, He showed them His hands and His feet.
41 While they still could not believe it because of their joy and amazement, He said to them, “Have you anything here to eat?”
42 They gave Him a piece of a broiled fish;
43 and He took it and ate it before them.
44 Now He said to them, “These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things which are written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.”
45 Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures,
46 and He said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Christ would suffer and rise again from the dead the third day,
47 and that repentance for forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in His name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.
48 “You are witnesses of these things.
49 “And behold, I am sending forth the promise of My Father upon you; but you are to stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.”
50 And He led them out as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them.
51 While He was blessing them, He parted from them and was carried up into heaven.
52 And they, after worshiping Him, returned to Jerusalem with great joy,
53 and were continually in the temple praising God.
So many people think that going to some building and listening to pep talks will get them closer to Yahweh! You will be introduced to the way, the truth and learn the real way to obtain life through Jesus the Christ, but the ability to respond to that is learned from the word of Yahweh and the words He gave Jesus! Don’t for one second think that I am bashing the Church (faithful following) of Christ either! The real Church is willing to listen to the truth and even things that are apparently not truth, because we can always take it back to Yahweh through Jesus and learn what the right response is! So many people take for granted this truth! Then so many hear things that tickle their ears and think they have heard enough so they put a lid on their spiritual jar and close themselves off to the world! We are supposed to be present in the world in all aspects but to be of the Kingdom of Heaven in all situations. Let me explain something that all people can understand, I hope!
1 Corinthians 3:13
13 each man’s work will become evident; for the day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the quality of each man’s work.
2 Corinthians 2:9
9 For to this end also I wrote, so that I might put you to the test, whether you are obedient in all things.
2 Corinthians 8:22
22 We have sent with them our brother, whom we have often tested and found diligent in many things, but now even more diligent because of his great confidence in you.
2 Corinthians 13:5
5 Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you—unless indeed you fail the test?
2 Corinthians 13:6
6 But I trust that you will realize that we ourselves do not fail the test.
1 Timothy 3:10
10 These men must also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons if they are beyond reproach.
9 Where your fathers tried Me by testing Me,
And saw My works for forty years.
17 By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises was offering up his only begotten son;
3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.
1 Peter 1:7
7 so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
1 Peter 4:12
12 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you;
1 John 4:1
1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
These are just a few examples that you can go read in the word of Yahweh and His Christ! If I was to learn the ABC’s when I was a child and before finishing the understanding of them all, and decide that I didn’t care to finish! If I told myself there was no need for these foolish so called letters! I can talk just fine without them! The only problem is that later I would fail to understand what words were what, and how to then relay these words in proper thoughts. This would then cause me to miss out on so many things because I chose to deny myself the ability to fully understand what the real purpose was behind it all! This is exactly what most people do when they start their spiritual journey! They choose to say there is no need to listen to that Catholic, or Baptist because we know that we have all we need here being a Pentecostal or Methodist! Do you see the ignorance in this idea of thinking? Denomination actually means “division” and that is exactly what the evil wants people! If you think that you can fit the infinite God inside your finite religion then you are going to lack the ability to respond in the way that pleases Heaven the majority of times!
Yahweh has given me so much in my life, and until the past three years or so I took it all for granted. I have come to realize that we are so blinded to the truth most times, and it is our ability to respond to what we hear or see in this life that molds our lives! As parents we want what is best for our children! We will teach them to respond to things so that they can learn to have the ability to respond to situations when they get older. The only problem is that us parents are broken and even when we begin to help we are like what Jesus said!
16 “Woe to you, blind guides, who say, ‘Whoever swears by the temple, that is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple is obligated.’
17 “You fools and blind men! Which is more important, the gold or the temple that sanctified the gold?
18 “And, ‘Whoever swears by the altar, that is nothing, but whoever swears by the offering on it, he is obligated.’
19 “You blind men, which is more important, the offering, or the altar that sanctifies the offering?
20 “Therefore, whoever swears by the altar, swears both by the altar and by everything on it.
21 “And whoever swears by the temple, swears both by the temple and by Him who dwells within it.
22 “And whoever swears by heaven, swears both by the throne of God and by Him who sits upon it.
23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier provisions of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness; but these are the things you should have done without neglecting the others.
24 “You blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!
We are trying so hard to please the world around us most the time that we deny the word of God at every turn! Time after time we fall short because the world will never be satisfied due to it is still ran by evil! Jesus was born to show the world the truth, the way, and through this we can truly obtain life! Ask yourself if you have the ability to respond to this world in a matter that brings peace or more trouble? Jesus always responded with truth and in truth there is the reality of peace no matter what happens! Those who embrace the truth will have inner peace and understanding and those who fight this truth will be troubled with the burdens that come with denying truth!
27 “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.
Jesus always allowed the people’s faith to be the engaging factor of the things the Father would do through Him! As disciples we are to learn that the work is Yahweh’s (God’s) and if we try to take credit then we defeat the very blessings that will take place. This doesn’t allow our faith to grow in the way that Jesus taught the world!
1 “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.
See we must believe in the truth and the truth is there is only one God and He allowed His only begotten (first genes) Son born of flesh to be the sacrifice for all mankind’s sins. Sin means “to miss the mark” and Yahweh made sure that His Son would hit the mark. Our responsibility is not to chase the things of this world but rather to seek the heart of our creator! The heart is only used for the term that reflects the root of what lies within each one of us! We can have the ability to respond to anything by clinging to the teaching of the one who sits at the right hand of our creator, and the words He told us in John 14:1! It is only out of faith that we allow Yahweh (God) to see our heart! We can’t see Him until we allow Him to see us, and that means all of us. The bad and good we have hidden in us really isn’t hidden at all! When we act out of faith in what Jesus did then it allows Yahweh to see our hearts and then the peace that Jesus told us about, becomes natural! This choice is an individual one, no person alive can make this happen but one’s self. When Jesus turned water into wine, the people had to go get the water! When the man was able to walk, he had to pick up his mat! When the leopards were told to go to the Pharisees they were healed because they went out of faith! The heart or the spirit is directly connected to the creator after we accept His Son in our hearts! Then when we act through our hearts we can show the one who made us that we are able to respond out of faith! A faith that raises the dead, heals the sick and cast out demons that hold down our loved ones! We then take our responsibilities we obtain to the world with our actions as the words will always be given to us via the Holy (set apart) Spirit. I love Yahweh (God) because He is love and without this I am nothing. No amount of money, cars, houses, people, etc. could ever bring this love! The ability to respond to hate is only successful when we respond with genuine love brother and sisters!
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
44 “But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
45 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
46 “For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?
47 “If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?
48 “Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
The Latin from where perfect derived meant “to be complete” so without the truth, the way, and real life we cannot see the Father. Without that my friends we will forever be incomplete and forever lacking the ability to respond the way were truly created too!
