We all experience pain in our lives. For most we try to shove it deep down inside and act as if we aren’t hurt. “I don’t care that the woman I loved left me, I am fine”? “MY Dad and I wasn’t close so when he passed it didn’t really affect me”? No matter what it is that you have told yourself, we all have hurt and pain in life. In a fallen broken world the only two things you can count on is 1- you will be let down and hurt by people and 2- the God that is alive has sent the answer to that pain. We spend so much time thinking we can fix our pain and write it out to be a story that fits what we want to believe instead of accepting it for what it truly is. Wow are we so ignorant! I have been so guilty of this in my life that when I actually realized how much pain I did have inside it was tearing me apart. It wasn’t my job or lack thereof. It wasn’t the mistakes that my parents made. It sure wasn’t the actions of others in my life! It was the lack of understanding that there was and is one who always loved me. Yahweh (God) and because He loved me so much He sent His word (seed) to come to life in the person of Yeshua (Jesus). The whole time I was allowing this world to tell me lies and lead me in the way of pride I was just being torn apart from the inside out. Mistakes happen in all of our lives. It is how we respond to them and the response to the way others treat us that ultimately determine our level of joy. In each one of us there is a hole, and that hole is for the missing piece we all lack at birth. The one who forms us in the womb of our mother has made that spot for Him. We are taught to go to school, and to be a productive part of society these days. What if that which society offers is the opposite of what we should actually be seeking? The one who knows that we all have a hole in us is doing everything he can to keep us from filling that void-satan. So the further we get away from Yahweh (God) in this country the further we get from filling that void. That is why so many seek love in the acceptance of people instead understanding what they truly long for is the connection to God. It has nothing to do with Religion, it has everything to do with a relationship. This is why Yeshua (Jesus) gave His life as a sacrifice for all mankind. If you have heard of Jesus then that is a start. For most though they really don’t understand that the truth is for them, not against them. So many Religions have added weight and self-guilt to the Gospel (good news) that Jesus brought the world. Look at what Jesus told the world before He ascended to Heaven.
12 “This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you.
13 “Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.
14 “You are My friends if you do what I command you.
15 “No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you.
16 “You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you.
17 “This I command you, that you love one another.
Disciples’ Relation to the World
18 “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you.
19 “If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you.
20 “Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also.
21 “But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me.
22 “If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin.
23 “He who hates Me hates My Father also.
24 “If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would not have sin; but now they have both seen and hated Me and My Father as well.
25 “But they have done this to fulfill the word that is written in their Law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’
26 “When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify about Me,
27 and you will testify also, because you have been with Me from the beginning.
Love is selfless not selfish and for most people they will never understand this. Why? It is the personal pride we build up in us that doesn’t allow us to see our faults. Most of us are so full of pain that it seems easier to believe the lie that the pain isn’t there and try to move on. The problem is that it is like a festering wound that has a band aid on it. We can tell ourselves it is healing under that façade but in reality it is getting worse and will soon affect so much more in our lives. The whole time we go on ignoring the one who sees it all. All the pain and hurt is being shoved right in that hole that belongs to God as He patiently waits for us to humble ourselves and ask for help.
2 When pride comes, then comes dishonor,
But with the humble is wisdom.
19 It is better to be humble in spirit with the lowly
Than to divide the spoil with the proud.
There are 89+ times in the Bible that Yahweh (God) has spoken directly or through people about being humble. We are in a world that is still under the grip of the fallen Angels and because of this we are persuaded by deception and lies that create us to be full of pride in so many ways. Add the love of money to this and this is exactly why you see what you do in the highest parts of our Nation now. It has spiraled out of control even more since 1962. From 1620 until 1963 prayer and the word of God was a daily part of our schools. Look at how far we have fallen in just 57 years. You can continue to be one who seeks the truth in the lies of this world or you can truly embrace what really made this country so great. The truth Of Yahweh (God) and His Son Yeshua (Jesus). To deny the truth is to only hinder you personally. The will of God will always take place, and it boils down to if you are on the right side. The reason this Nation has fallen apart is because of so many being on the wrong side. Even the majority of the so called church have been on the wrong side most of these past 57+ years. Time is only established to keep order in the physical and to hold us accountable to the one who gave us life. To stand idle and not stand up for what is right is just the same as standing with evil. The 60+ millions of babies that have been murdered in the wombs here in America have upset Yahweh. He will not let us go unpunished. For those who seek forgiveness in His Son Jesus the Christ (anointed one) you will find it. For those who keep defying the one and only living God, well you will experience His wrath that is coming for the fallen angels. This wrath is not and never was intended for mankind. It is and has always been set for the fallen angels that defy God. The problem is that if you don’t hear the truth then without even knowing it you side against Yahweh. Why do you think that the most famous name in History is the name Yeshua (Jesus). His-Story, it is God’s story and the main character is the one who died to save us all from the lies that have plagued us from the beginning of time. Now you can rest assure that if you seek God with a repentive heart you will find Him. Repent means "to change one's mind" and this happens daily. He sees all and is everywhere waiting for the repentance of us all. Why would He place a spot for Him in us them leave us victim to the wolves. Jesus told us all what to look out for!
The Narrow and Wide Gates
13 “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it.
14 “For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.
A Tree and Its Fruit
15 “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.
16 “You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they?
17 “So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit.
18 “A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.
19 “Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
20 “So then, you will know them by their fruits.
21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.
22 “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’
23 “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’
Just because it looks good or feels good doesn’t mean it is. Look at verse 13 again and notice the word broad. It is not just by happen stance that every major city in America has a street named Broadway and that on them there is a high rate of crime. They are all victims of the lies of evil and don’t understand the truth. Then we still have so many self-righteous people who claim to love Jesus but are not any better off than the ones stuck on Broadway. The greatest lie in America today is the one that lies within the church. Most attend buildings thinking that just because they show up once a week that they are doing God’s work. Spare the living God the disrespect please! Some of you will get mad and full of pride when you read this and others will be at peace, as some will not have a clue what to think. Being part of the church is being faithful in love 24/7 and it doesn’t mean we will not have any problems in life. If you are really doing the will of Yahweh and His Christ Yeshua then you will endure more and more problems. If you have a happy go lucky life then you might want to do a reality check. Truth can hurt when you are on the wrong side of it and for this popular prosperity Gospel here in America, well I pray Yahweh slaps your heart with conviction. The only answers you need lay right in the word of God. Of course God will send people and other things to help you but look what Jesus told His disciples!
7 “And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’
8 “Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.
9 “Do not acquire gold, or silver, or copper for your money belts,
10 or a bag for your journey, or even two coats, or sandals, or a staff; for the worker is worthy of his support
Letting go of our pain takes us being honest from within. When we do the one who has seen it all along will be there to help us heal, and learn how to grow in the real truth!!
