Mother Teresa said,
The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty — it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There’s a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God. ― Mother Teresa
I’ve discovered YAhWEH because I searched for Him with my whole heart from the age of three or four. My mother taught me about this amazing God from I was a child. I decided I wanted to locate YAHWEH and went in search of Him in my mind looking through the vast dark universe passing star upon star upon star–until I fell asleep. YAHWEH SHOWED on the very day my grandmother died and has revealed Himself to me for over four decades. My relationship has grown stronger. I will share with you some key nuggets to discovering true inner peace in the presence of Yahweh!
Do you presently feel fearful and anxious or fearless and at peace? For many years I suffered from periods of fearfulness and anxiety. Today I walk fearless and at peace despite the storms that come and go because I have a relationship with YAHWEH.
Lets’ study the words of King Solomon, the prodigal son, the Apostle Peter, Abraham and others led by YAHWEH as well as the words from Yahweh to discover everlasting peace via the Holy Spirit. YAHWEH’s Spirit transforms our spirits into fearless and faithful followers of the Way of Yeshua who follows the Way of Yahweh: the Way of Wisdom and eternal life.
For the Holy Spirit to transform us, we must truly repent of our sin, reject all sin in our lives and ask Yahweh to help us do so. This is when Holy Spirit steps in and removes our stony disobedient heart. The Holy Spirit will give us a heart transplant giving us a soft heart with YAHWEH’S Ten Commandments engraved within our heart. Yes, the Holy Spirit will mold us into the character of YAHWEH: Righteous and Holy.
A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. (Ezekiel 36:26)
And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh: That they may walk in my statutes, and keep my ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God. But as for them whose heart walketh after the heart of their detestable things and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon their own heads, saith the Lord GOD. (Ezekiel 11:19-21)
Peace comes from obedience to YAHWEH. When we learn to believe in His Words to us and claim the promises, we discover miracles that bring peace and joy in the presence of YAHWEH.
Submit to God, and you will have peace; then things will go well for you. (Job 22:21)
The opposite is certainly true. If you reject YAHWEH’S voice, you will not possess peace and things will not go well with you.
The Apostle Paul said,
And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful. (Colossians 3:15)
The holy prophet Isaiah wrote,
Righteousness will bring peace. Yes, it will bring quietness and confidence forever. (Isaiah 32:17)
Obedience to YAHWEH’S words is the key to lasting peace; disobedience leads to pain and separation from YAHWEH as well as loss of blessings.
1. Solomon Loved Many Sinful Women; His Sinful Wives Turned Away His Exemplary Heart After Other Gods.
King Solomon the wisest man that ever lived claimed,
When people’s lives please the Lord, even their enemies are at peace with them. (Proverbs 16:7)
King Solomon who once had a heart perfect with Yahweh also said,
The righteous are bold as a lion, but the wicked flee when no man pursueth. (Proverbs 28:1)
Finding inner peace is quite perplexing. We, however, can maintain perfect peace and fearlessness. Difficulties will surely come. We can choose to obey Yahweh’s voice (Ten Commandments spoken down Mount Sinai) or to disobey Yahweh’s voice: Ten Commandments. If we choose not to listen, things will worsen within our lives–I assure you. The problems will escalate until like the prodigal son we hopefully wake up to realize that disobedience to YAHWEH our Father does not and cannot work. We must learn to hear and heed Yahweh’s still small voice–EXODUS 20.
Solomon the wisest man that ever lived failed to heed God’s commands to not marry disreputable women–though physically beautiful.
When Solomon had a right relationship with Yahweh, He possessed confidence and boldness before His enemies. When he chose to ignore YAHWEH’s instructions, YAHWEH curtailed his blessings–1 King 11:1-4, 31-33.
1 But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites:
2 Of the nations concerning which the Lord said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you:for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love.
3 And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart.
4 For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the Lord his God, as was the heart of David his father.
31 And he (prophet Ahijah) said to Jeroboam, Take thee ten pieces: for thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel, Behold, I will rend the kingdom out of the hand of Solomon, and will give ten tribes to thee:
32 (But he shall have one tribe for my servant David’s sake, and for Jerusalem’s sake, the city which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel:)
33 Because that they have forsaken me, and have worshipped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Milcom the god of the children of Ammon, and have not walked in my ways, to do that which is right in mine eyes, and to keep my statutes and my judgments, as did David his father.
Solomon basically drifted away from YAHWEH due to his lawless wives, his popularity and his opulence. We cannot allow anything to separate us from maintaining a relationship with YAHWEH.
How could Solomon the wisest man that ever lived who wrote the Song of Solomon, Proverbs and Ecclesiastes (and built the temple of God) go astray?
The same tactics Satan used against Solomon to steal His peace and separate Him from His relationship with Yahweh, Satan will use on you and me today. The enemy of YAHWEH (Satan) comes to steal our joy and peace that comes from maintaining a close relationship with YAHWEH.
We must obey YAHWEH’s voice and flee sin.
Satan will introduce foreign men and women, distractions of wealth as well as fame to separate us from YAHWEH.
How will we stand a chance against the deceitfulness of sin when Solomon the wisest man fell victim to Satan’s distractions?
I pray often for God to give me wisdom as great as Solomon on a foundation of righteousness, and faith to move mountains.
2. The Whole Duty of Man is to Keep the Commandments of YAHWEH.
At the end of Solomon’s life, he pondered the path of his feet. The losses he endured helped him to see the main point of life:
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: 1) Fear God, and 2) keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. (Ecclesiastes 12:13)
For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:14)
A righteous lifestyle leads to fearless living and trust in Yahweh. Inner peace comes from this right relationship. When you come to fear Yahweh, you will come to fear nothing else!
3. Inner Peace Comes From Obedience to YAHWEH’s Will and Voice
I submit my heart one hundred percent unto God asking the Holy Spirit to do the work through me each day.
We cannot rely on our heart or we will fail like Solomon. We must commit our works to God so He can do the work through us and help us to keep sin away from us. We must stay vigilant about those we let into our lives.
Those whom we spend the most time with will influence our actions for good or for evil in the sight of God–be careful the company you keep. The important thing to remember is our spouses can cause us to drift away from a right relationship with YAHWEH. We must put God above our spouse because our life partner do not possess the key (the Holy Spirit) to the kingdom–only Yahweh does. We must pray with and for them daily as we pray daily for ourselves so that we walk with God together.
4. Give the Spirit the Sword: The Word of YAHWEH
Satan like a roaring lion is constantly seeking whom he may devour. So we must stay on guard. The battle is a spiritual battle. Satan is real! We must put on our spiritual armor and be ready to fight with the words of YAHWEH on the tips of our tongue. We must give the Spirit the sword by using God’s words to conquer the enemy–seen in Matthew 4:1-11. State it is written when Satan strikes and combat the enemy with the Word of YAHWEH:
IT IS WRITTEN “And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.” (Deuteronomy 8:3)
“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4)
IT IS WRITTEN “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.” (Isaiah 54:17)
IT IS WRITTEN “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” (I John 4:4)
IT IS WRITTEN “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28)
5. Powerful Promises to Have at the Tips of Your Tongue
Satan will not overcome you. Storms will not overtake you. Fires will not burn you.
Regardless of what you face, your eyes will stay fixed on the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords who you know will come to your rescue when you call.
This leads to inner peace that surpasses all understanding. If you wish to have this peace, then you must remember God’s promises and remind Him of them when you pray. Here are some examples:
And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7)
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Great peace have they which love Your Law: and nothing shall offend them. (Psalm 119:165)
32 It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.
33 He maketh my feet like hinds’ feet, and setteth me upon my high places.
34 He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms.
35 Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.
36 Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip. (Psalm 18:32-36)
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, (Ephesians 3:20)
Knowing YAHWEH’s promises and believing in His Words to us will give us inner peace. Your faith like a muscle worked day by day will develop and become stronger. This will allow us to find peace in the midst of storms–knowing Yeshua protects and His Holy Spirit resides within us. The price for this inner peace and the gift of YAHWEH’s Holy Spirit is the rejection of sin and repentance.
6. Made Free From Sin and Became Servants of Righteousness
Paul says in parts of Romans 6 the following:
2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.
8 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
9 Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.
13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
Whom the Son sets free is free from sin indeed! This leads to peace that surpasses all understanding–inner peace!
7. The Prodigal Son Rediscovers Inner Peace By Returning To His Father, Seeking Forgiveness From His Father and Obeying His Father’s Voice.
Law-abiding living in relationship with Yahweh brings inner peace. Sinful living, rebellious living leads to pain, suffering, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, irritable bowel syndrome, heart attacks, hypertension and hopelessness.
Let’s look at the story of the prodigal son in Luke 15:11-24. Many reach this inner state of turmoil and commit homicide and/or suicide in utter desperation.
The prodigal son, however, remembered that he was a child of the king and returned home. He did not lay there suffering in sin and die in his desperate state. He took action and returned home to his father’s kingdom. Let’s start at the beginning of the story before the son left the kingdom.
And he said, “There was a man who had two sons. And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of property that is coming to me.’ And he divided his property between them. Not many days later, the younger son gathered all he had and took a journey into a far country, and there he squandered his property in reckless living. And when he had spent everything, a severe famine arose in that country, and he began to be in need. So he went and hired himself out to one of the citizens of that country, who sent him into his fields to feed pigs. And he was longing to be fed with the pods that the pigs ate, and no one gave him anything.
“But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have more than enough bread, but I perish here with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Treat me as one of your hired servants.”’ And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him. And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring quickly the best robe, and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet. And bring the fattened calf and kill it, and let us eat and celebrate. For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.’ And they began to celebrate. (Luke 15:11-24)
Once the prodigal son recognized that he possessed absolutely no peace, no joy, no strength in himself and no power to change his negative circumstances, he quickly deduced that his only hope rest in returning home to the king: his Father. If we are truly wise, we will come to recognize that we like the prodigal son need to return back home to YAHWEH the King to find true happiness and peace in relationship with our Father in Heaven.
8. Remind YAHWEH of His Promises
Inner peace requires us to develop our faith and trust in Yahweh: the King and Our Father in Heaven. We must learn to fervently reject sin and seek a correct relationship with Yahweh by getting on our knees and crying out to Him. We must sincerely trust that He hears us, say we are sorry for our sins and ask for His forgiveness. We should, also, ask Yahweh to help us overcome all sins in our life–sin will lead to our destruction if we do not wisen up like the prodigal son and seek our Father in heaven for help.
Remind God of His promises in John 14:14 (my grandfather’s favorite Bible verse):
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
You should ask God to forgive you of all your sins and ask Him to help you break the chains of sin from off of your life.
We must not only remind God of His promises, but we must believe Him. We must go to God humbly upon our knees and seek His help. His ears will hear us and His eyes will see us when we are sincerely seeking to obey His voice, His Commandments, His Laws and His Statutes. King David, King Solomon’s father said in Psalm 34 the following (words to stand upon, to strengthen you and to give you inner peace):
34 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
3 O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.
4 I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.
6 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
8 O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
9 O fear the Lord, ye his saints: for there is no want to them that fear him.
10 The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.
11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
12 What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?
13 Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile.
14 Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
15 The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry.
16 The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
17 The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.
20 He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.
21 Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
22 The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.
Remind God of His promises, particularly, John 14:14 when you pray.
If ye shall ask anything in my name, I will do it.
When the enemy comes to assault you, speak the words of God: Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that procedeth out of the mouth of Yahweh (Ten Commandments spoken down the mountain). You will live by obeying God’s voice; you will live by obeying God’s Ten Commandments spoken down the mountain for all the people to hear–an extraordinary moment in all of history when God spoke directly to humanity!
Those who fear God will live; they will fear nothing else! Great peace have they which love Your Laws and nothing shall offend them!
9. Reject Sin, Repent and Turn Back to God for Help to Attain Perfect Peace
For instance Yahweh ask us to separate ourselves from false traditions, teachings and/or love ones. We must separate ourselves from sin if we intend to unite with God. Anything or anyone that may cause or lead us to sin, God may ask us to sever the ties.
If God ask you to chop off your hand to remove sin from you, would you do it or ignore God’s voice? What God calls us to do appears very hard to do no matter how much you desire to serve and obey God.
I would try to obey God without completely chopping out sin. I wavered with God until the pain of sin became too great to bare alone.
One day the Holy Spirit led me to turn to God, ask for forgiveness, tell God His ways are higher than my ways, ask God to help me overcome all sins in my life and request that God remove anything that displeased Him from my life. I gave Yahweh literally free rein to root out all sins in my life. I even confessed I could not remove sin without God’s help.
In one big swoop God started chopping out areas of sin from my life; He did not stop until I was free from the chains of sin. The best way to describe how painful the process was for me is to say it was like I suffered the lost of an eye or a hand. The part of me that tied me to sin was cut and severed from my life. God, however, will never give you more than you can bare. I didn’t know what hit me, but I trusted God throughout the the process. It was painful for God to set me free from sin, but I realized it was necessary for me to attain peace, joy and love. Think of say an alligator that has his jaws clamped on your hand and is attempting to pull you off the land into the water to drown and consume you. Then someone grabs you and chops your hand off to prevent you from being eaten by the alligator. It pains you to lose your hand, but you would rather lose your hand than lose your life.
You’d rather allow God to make some cuts in your life to free you from the bondage to sin and Satan than that you would lose your soul.
When you come to realize how much sin hurts not only you, others and God, you will never want to sin against God ever again!
Will you give Yahweh full control over your life to gouge out sin from your life? You will discover a relationship with God and find the inner peace in knowing Him!
10. The Moment I turned To YAHWEH To Remove Sin From My Life Was A Game Changer
The afternoon I had a heart to heart with God on my knees, I was desperate. Desperate times call for desperate measures. I had to come to realize that I could not break free from sin on my own though it was not for a lack of trying. I needed supernatural powers to intervene and get me away from sin and anything that displeased God.
I finally realized my way was futile. The Holy Spirit prayed on my behalf and led me through the valley of darkness into the marvelous light. I am so grateful that the Holy Spirit was there for me teaching and leading me. I just cried out to God one day and my whole life changed for the better. I also give partial credit to Dr. Charles Stanley because I took his advice that afternoon. He told me what to do, and I did it.
I’ve passed through many storms since that day, but I’m stronger and more at peace than ever! God’s Holy Spirit lives within, and I’m never alone.
Like the prodigal son, I came to realize that my life would be far better with God than without Him. I returned to the Father for guidance with my life. God heard my humble but sincere prayer to eradicate all sins from my life. He helped me and continues to do so. God will help you too! He is no respecter of persons. God will cast your sins as far as the East is from the West if you ask Him to do so. He forgives murderers, adulterers, liars, thieves, idolaters, Sabbath breakers, etc. Sin is the breaking of God’s Ten Commandments, and we are all sinners fallen short of the grace of God. Remember nothing is impossible with YAHWEH.
11. We Must Gouge Out Sin From Our Lives and Never Look Back
Matthew 5:29-30 reminds us how much God wants sin out of us so He can have a relationship with us again:
If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.
And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to depart into hell.
If God ask you to kill your child like He told Abraham, would you obey Yahweh (like Abraham did before God stopped him)?
And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.
11 And the angel of the Lord called unto him out of heaven, and said, Abraham, Abraham: and he said, Here am I.
12 And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me. (Genesis 22:9-12)
If God ask you to cut out sin from your life, would you obey Yahweh (like Abraham did and was called faithful, righteous and a friend of God)?
Severing a hand, gouging out an eye or killing your child feels absolutely impossible according to the flesh.
God mustn’t mean to actually gouge out sin from our life! Yeshua (Jesus) cut out sin out of our lives at the cross for us right? The work is finished right? Wrong! Yeshua’s work is finished; your work to break free from sin has just begun when you accept Yeshua!
12. Remain on the Narrow Road
Yeshua died to pay our sin penalty to set us free from a life of sin. He will not free us from sin until we commit to living a sin free lifestyle and repent and ask for His help. God will not force His Way of love upon us. The Holy Spirit will knock on the door of our hearts, but we must invite Him into our lives. We must reject sin and repent asking God for forgiveness for sinning against Him. When we seek His help to eradicate sin from our life, Yahweh will rescue us by sending His Holy Spirit to empower us to do His will. His Spirit will comfort us through the journey back to the Father’s Way of life: true wisdom. We must stay on that narrow Way that leads to the Father. We cannot look back on our old lifestyle like Lot’s wife who looked back turning to salt and dying. The point of this is that we must obey God’s voice no matter what!
Finding our way back to Yahweh will take us through many storms, but we will possess Yahweh’s Holy Spirit. Satan and his minions will attack us through friends, church members and people we encounter in the workplace who will not like us because we are different: children of God. God will live, move and speak through us.
A relationship with our heavenly Father via the Holy Spirit brings peace that will surpass all understanding. You will then come to know and find inner peace via the Holy Spirit because God will live and dwell with you!
The Holy Spirit is not going to force us to stay in a right relationship with Yahweh. We must make a daily commitment to flee sin like Joseph, Abraham, Yeshua (God with us), Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.
We must seek God, forgiveness and repentance daily to help us continue to gouge out every sin from within us so we do not sin against Yahweh.
When we live by the Spirit and the power of God depending and praying to God to help us daily, nothing will be impossible. Our faith will move mountains in our lives. The Comforter (Spirit of God) will write God’s Ten Commandments (God’s character) of love upon our soft hearts. The Holy Spirit will help us to walk holy and righteous before our God. The Holy Spirit who cut out our hard hearts, transplanted a soft heart within us and wrote God’s Commandments upon our new soften heart will guide us daily.
13. Have You Had a Heart Transplant and Had the Ten Commandments Engraved in a Softened Heart Within You?
Do you have peace in the storms? Do you have a relationship with YAHWEH? Has YAHWEH manifested Himself to you?
But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. (Jeremiah 31:33)
And this is My covenant with them when I take away their sins.” (Romans 11:27)
It is clear that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. (2 Corinthians 3:3)
For this is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord. I will put My laws in their minds, and inscribe them on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they will be My people. (Hebrews 8:10)
“This is the covenant I will make with them after those days, declares the Lord. I will put My Laws in their hearts and inscribe them on their minds.” (Hebrews 8:6)
Now about brotherly love, you do not need anyone to write to you, because you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another. (I Thessalonians 4:9)
I delight to do Your will, O my God; Your law is within my heart.” (Psalm 40:8)
The law of his God is in his heart; his steps do not falter. (Psalm 37:31)
Remember we walk by faith (by the spirit of the living God renewing our spirit day by day into the likeness of Yeshua) not by sight (fleshly man that will die day by day). With God all things are possible to him or her that believe: by obeying His Voice and His Commandments. He spoke His Commandments down the mountain and wrote them on tablets of stone to represent there permanency and gave them to the children of Israel and us to obey His voice.
14. Obedience To the Voice of YAHWEH
Remember man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that procedeth out of the mouth of God. What words did God speak down the mountain? He spoke the Ten Commandments! This was very special! God Spoke directly to man in a manner here on earth for all to hear so they would never forget His voice and His Commandments to them!
But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. (Matthew 4:4)
He humbled you, and in your hunger gave you manna to eat, which neither you nor your fathers had known, so that you might understand that man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD. (Deuteronomy 8:3)
The Ten Commandments came from the mouth of God: you should live by every word–see Exodus 20:1-20.
15. Loving Yahweh Means That We Detest Sin (The Breaking of Yahweh’s Ten Commandments)–His Voice Thundered Down His Will For All Humanity to Obey and Discover Abundant Life, Joy and Peace With YAHWEH Once Again
What Yahweh expects of us will take a lot of soul searching and assistance from the Holy Spirit. Yahweh’s Holy Spirit will empower us in breaking the shackles of sin from our lives so we can become slaves to righteousness and servants of YAHWEH–rather than continue to serve Satan via sin.
Knowing that sin separates us from God is a step to acquiring true wisdom. So as long as we live with sin, we do not live in a right relationship with YAHWEH. Thus we are not under YAHWEH’S complete protection and will suffer because of this. Thus we will feel inner turmoil which will get worse and not better over time. King David in Psalms 40 shows us how to talk with YAHWEH to help us while in distress due to sin.
40:1 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
40:2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
40:3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
40:4 Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
40:5 Many, O LORD my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
40:6 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required.
40:7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,
40:8 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.
40:9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest.
40:10 I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.
40:11 Withhold not thou thy tender mercies from me, O LORD: let thy lovingkindness and thy truth continually preserve me.
40:12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me.
40:13 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me.
YAHWEH and the heavenly host are waiting for us to cry out to YAHWEH for help in our distress like King David did. We must detest sin knowing the distress sin brings upon us and those around us that suffer too.
When we hate sin and learn that it cost us more than we can bare, we will reject sin, repent and live. Then the angels in heaven will see us connect spiritually with YAHWEH and celebrate. The heavenly host become joyful when one sinner repents of their sins against YAHWEH.
Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth. (Luke 15:10)
We must do as King David and seek a right relationship with YAHWEH–rejecting sin at all cost even severing any sinful parts of ourselves via the help of the Holy Spirit. Thus we can come to truly live victorious lives overflowing with peace and joy in the presence of YAHWEH.
16. Sin Has to Be Cut Out of Us By the Holy Spirit Removing Our Hard Hearts and Giving Us New Hearts that Detest Sin Like YAHWEH Detest sin
God wants you to understand how much a part of us sin is and how it will pain us to remove the sinful parts of us. That’s why cutting out sin is compared to cutting off a sinful hand or plucking out a sinful eye. We must, however, do so with the power of the Holy Spirit (the Comforter). The Holy Spirit is our Comforter. This Holy Spirit from YAHWEH will comfort us through this spiritual revolution. This transformation will impact us physically by eradicating our sinful heart and giving us a new heart that seeks the things that pleases YAHWEH.
We must, however, go to God on our knees and cry out to Him and give Him the authority to remove all sins from us. We must repent and be truly sorry for our sins.
This process will hurt like Yeshua’s crucifixion on the cross. We must bare our cross too. This is to avoid going to hell. You, however, will heal and be way better off filled with joy and peace with the presence of the Holy Spirit indwelling you. This reconstruction starts with a simple prayer for God to help you conquer sin in your life and asking God to forgive you of your sins. Sincerity and faith in God is the key that unlocks the powers of heaven in your life and mine.
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. (Hebrews 11:6)
17. My Life is a Testament to the Power of the Words of God in the Bible
I testify to you that this works and what the Apostle Paul wrote is absolutely true. I have walked with God my entire life. When I went astray like the prodigal son, I suffered for it. I learned that sin does not pay but enslaves us. I asked God to set me free from sin, and God did! He spoke to my heart. He spoke to me through a dream of heaven. He’s spoken to me many times and His words are sure and true. I thank Him and am filled with peace and joy today despite the storms that come and go. He guides my steps and protects me by speaking to me suddenly through a still small voice.
In I Kings 19:11-13 God speaks to Elijah,
11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake:
12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.
13 And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?
You have to talk to God and listen for His still small voice. Elijah heard it. I have heard God’s voice many times. You can too.
Moses and Abraham spoke with God.
And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle. (Exodus 33:11)
The Lord also spoke with Abraham–see an example in Genesis 17.
And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.
2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.
3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, (Genesis 17:1-3)
God still speaks to us today. We must want to do his will for our lives. When challenges comes and were are destitute of hope that is when we hear God the best. We are more diligent in seeking Him out for help. He is ready and waiting for us to come to Him and repent. He will talk to us and help us conquer sin that brings pain, suffering, loneliness, hopelessness and inner turmoil.
18. The God I serve Hears My Prayers and Comes to My Rescue
My God is greater than any challenge that sin brings upon us. I walk by faith and not by sight trusting in God. This relationship with YAHWEH is the best investment I made in this lifetime and in the lifetime to come. He’s a friend that sticks closer than a brother. You are never alone because God is near each of us waiting for sinners to come to repentance.
Many of us go to church today with the easy breezy teachings in regards to sin. False doctrines are very dangerous and is a tool that Satan uses to distract God’s people from knowing the truth that saves lives. We are told that Jesus died on the cross for sinners and we do not have to do anything except accept and confess that Christ died on the cross for our sins. Satan confesses this. The demons know this. This, however, is not enough.
We have a role to play too. We are not passive Christians. We are warriors in this battle. We must run to win and not sit passively by thinking Yeshua did it all and there is no work for us to do.
We must obey the doctrine brought to us by Yeshua from Yahweh. We must obey the Father’s will: Ten Commandments spoken and written with the Father’s finger–hanging on these two principle of love for God and love for our neighbor as we would love our self. We must live by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of Yahweh. We must obey the Ten Commandments (His will for our lives); He spoke down the mountain and wrote on tablets of stone now written in on our hearts by the Holy Spirit.
The ten commandments are not done away. The book of ordinances written by Moses and tithes are done away. Yeshua nailed the book of the laws of Moses to the cross, but the Holy Spirit writes the will of God on our soften heart that He places within us. He helps us to conquer sin in our lives.
19. The Ten Commandments Will Judge You–Don’t Believe Satan’s Lies
“Jesus will give you a white coat to put over your dirty coat” an adventist pastor former head of a conference once told us in Bible study.
Well that’s not what God’s word says. That’s what man says. The word of God will judge you not man.
He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. (John 12:48)
I remember thinking this pastor is joking right? Wrong, the former head of a conference was deadly serious. I found this laughable and often tell the story because false teachers are like wolves in sheep’s clothing attempting to devour the sheep (God’s people) instead of feed the sheep. The sheep cannot find peace because they are lied to, and they are made merchandise of.
If the blind lead the blind, they both fall in the ditch.
I later heard right after this that the retired pastor sadly developed brain cancer. I felt bad for him, but I recall what he said to the congregation of church believers that morning was indeed blasphemous.
The next thing, the leaders sold the church leaving the congregants shocked. They rented out a church in a more affluent neighborhood hoping to receive more tithes and offering. They were already receiving about $37,000 each month. They wanted about $47,500 a month. I remember looking at the church bulletin thinking wow that’s a lot of money considering about 100 to 150 people showed up each Saturday. We had many doctors and wealthier members that payed tithes–a professor told me he paid tithes off his gross. When the church sold, the conference pocketed about 10 million or more dollars. I was not pleased, and I know God was not pleased. I left that church and never went back to their new rented church facility. I now worship God with other like minded believers at home.
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (Galatians 6:7)
Another church leader who spearheaded the sale of the church developed cancer and died. The pastor that sold the church went on the preach in other churches leaving the destruction behind. God sees the heart. I am not the judge; God’s words will judge us.
20. Peter the Rock on which Yeshua Builds His Church
Peter says in 2 Peter 2 the following:
But there were also false prophets in Israel, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will cleverly teach destructive heresies and even deny the Master who bought them. In this way, they will bring sudden destruction on themselves.
2 Many will follow their evil teaching and shameful immorality. And because of these teachers, the way of truth will be slandered.
3 In their greed they will make up clever lies to get hold of your money. But God condemned them long ago, and their destruction will not be delayed.
4 For God did not spare even the angels who sinned. He threw them into hell in gloomy pits of darkness where they are being held until the day of judgment.
5 And God did not spare the ancient world—except for Noah and the seven others in his family. Noah warned the world of God’s righteous judgment. So God protected Noah when he destroyed the world of ungodly people with a vast flood.
6 Later, God condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and turned them into heaps of ashes. He made them an example of what will happen to ungodly people.
7 But God also rescued Lot out of Sodom because he was a righteous man who was sick of the shameful immorality of the wicked people around him.
8 Yes, Lot was a righteous man who was tormented in his soul by the wickedness he saw and heard day after day.
9 So you see, the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their trials, even while keeping the wicked under punishment until the day of final judgment.
10 He is especially hard on those who follow their own twisted sexual desire, and who despise authority.
These people are proud and arrogant, daring even to scoff at supernatural beings (at glorious ones, which are probably evil angels.) without so much as trembling.
11 But the angels, who are far greater in power and strength, do not dare to bring from the Lord a charge of blasphemy against those supernatural beings.
12 These false teachers are like unthinking animals, creatures of instinct, born to be caught and destroyed. They scoff at things they do not understand, and like animals, they will be destroyed.
13 Their destruction is their reward for the harm they have done. They love to indulge in evil pleasures in broad daylight. They are a disgrace and a stain among you. They delight in deception even as they eat with you in your fellowship meals.
14 They commit adultery with their eyes, and their desire for sin is never satisfied. They lure unstable people into sin, and they are well trained in greed. They live under God’s curse.
15 They have wandered off the right road and followed the footsteps of Balaam son of Beor, who loved to earn money by doing wrong.
16 But Balaam was stopped from his mad course when his donkey rebuked him with a human voice.
17 These people are as useless as dried-up springs or as mist blown away by the wind. They are doomed to blackest darkness.
18 They brag about themselves with empty, foolish boasting. With an appeal to twisted sexual desires, they lure back into sin those who have barely escaped from a lifestyle of deception.
19 They promise freedom, but they themselves are slaves of sin and corruption. For you are a slave to whatever controls you.
20 And when people escape from the wickedness of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and then get tangled up and enslaved by sin again, they are worse off than before.
21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
22 They prove the truth of this proverb: “A dog returns to its vomit.” And another says, “A washed pig returns to the mud.”
But God will snatch the wicked from the land and pull sinners out of it like plants from the ground. (Proverbs 2:22 GNT)
21. Satan Controls The Major Church Denominations
Many unfortunately are taught lies. Many think we just have to say Jesus died on the cross for the sins of the world and bam we are saved! I think not. Jesus did his part. You and I must do ours.
Jesus also had to die on Calvary and asked Yahweh to allow this cup of troubles to pass from Him, but Yahweh insisted that Yeshua (Jesus) die on that cross for the sins of the world.
My point is the church is fighting in a battle against deceiving spiritual forces in high and dark places.
We are in a battle and we cannot act as if we are at Disneyland and let Satan and His demonic forces pull the wool right over our eyes and distract us.
I am reminded that God’s people suffer for lack of knowledge. Our people cannot locate inner peace because the knowledge of the truth has been hidden from them for hundreds of years. They are taught the Ten Commandments are nailed to the cross and no longer in effect when it is the book of laws or ordinances written by Moses that are nailed to the cross–along with tithes.
Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; (Colosians 2:14)
22. If We Don’t Have to Do Anything Jesus Did It All For Us Why Do We Need to Tithe in the Church?
Despite telling the people they don’t have to do anything to get into heaven except say Jesus died for their sins. They tell them they have to pay their tithes. Well tithing is part of the book of the laws or ordinances nailed to the cross. How convenient tithing is kept but everything else is tossed out including God’s Royal Laws that define what sin is.
Let us forget the flawed traditions passed down to us with truths and lies intertwined. Let us ask Our Father in heaven to forgive us of all sins, help us to walk free of sin with the help of His Holy Spirit, write His laws on our hearts, remove the heart of stone and give us a soft heart obedient to the voice of Yahweh.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. (Matthew 7:7)
Let’s begin to take God at His word and do what He ask us to do.
What God ask of us will take more willpower than we believe we possess. We absolutely cannot break free from sin without His help. We must rely on God’s Holy Spirit to strengthen us, help us to overcome sin and break us from the chains of slavery to Satan and to sin.
23. Eradicating Sin Brings Peace and Joy
We need to think differently to overcome sin. We need to walk differently to overcome sin. We need the Holy Spirit to help us overcome sin. We need to turn to God for help.
The Holy Spirit will write the Ten Commandments upon the hearts of believers when we give YAHWEH permission to do so. The Holy Spirit will remove our hardened hearts and give us a soft heart in which He writes God’s character upon our inward heart. We must obey the words of God.
God called Abraham to leave his family before the days of telephone. Abraham obeyed the voice of Yahweh. If we choose to obey our parents and traditions over God, we unlike Abraham will not find inner peace in relationship with Yahweh.
I heard Trump say to the African American population what do you have to lose by giving him a chance. I say what do we have to lose by giving God a chance. God is perfect while Trump is a flawed man riddled by sin. He is trying to make America great again, but Yahweh is trying to make us righteous and holy again. What do we have to lose by obeying God’s Ten Commandments? What do we have to lose by obeying God’s voice? Has our way worked for us? No, so we ought to try another way. The Way that leads to righteous living with Yahweh.
Yahweh commands that you keep His Ten Commandments.
Many may tell unwitting believers to keep Sunday: commemorating the day of the sun–sun worship is a pagan practice. It is as old as civilization. Constantine merged the Sabbath with Sunday worship when he merged paganism with Christianity hundreds of years ago. Today this confusion corrupted many churches throughout the world.
William Tyler Olcott in Sun Lore of All Ages in 1914 said that sun worship is idolatrous and forbidden by Christianity. He wrote,
“Nothing proves so much the antiquity of solar idolatry as the care Moses took to prohibit it. “Take care,” said he to the Israelites, “lest when you lift up your eyes to Heaven and see the sun, the moon, and all the stars, you be seduced and drawn away to pay worship and adoration to the creatures which the Lord your God has made for the service of all the nations under Heaven.” Then we have the mention of Josiah taking away the horses that the king of Judah had given to the sun, and burning the chariot of the sun with fire. These references agree perfectly with the recognition in Palmyra of the Lord Sun, Baal Shemesh, and with the identification of the Assyrian Bel, and the Tyrian Baal with the sun.”
The Egyptian people honored Ra the sun god.
24. Abel Obeyed Gods Voice (His Command) But Cain Did Not Obey God’s Voice (God’s Command)–Cain Did Things His Own Way Using His Own Reasoning
That’s all Satan needs to do to cause unwitting believers to fall astray. If Satan can lie to you and convince you that you can worship God whenever and however you wish, he can deceive you like he deceived Cain. Cain did not obey God’s voice: His commands.
And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:
But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?
If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. (Genesis 4:4-7)
Cain lacked inner peace because he did not obey Yahweh’s voice: His command. He wanted to do things his way rather than the way God instructed him. Abel obeyed God’s voice: God’s command.
The Two Babylons by Alexander Hislop and the Angel of Light by Jack Chick trace Sunday worship to sun worship. Alexander Hislop in his book also traces Roman Catholic sacraments, doctrines, and priesthood to Babylonian Baal worship. Roman Catholicism is based on Babylonian Baal worship and traditions of the Church fathers. Catholicism does not align with the teachings of God’s Word or plan of salvation. Too many people write off the fourth Commandment as inconsequential when it obviously is writes a writer on the-ten-commandments.org.
25. The Greatest in the Kingdom Obey God’s Voice: His Commandments
Matthew warns us to obey God’s commands (His voice) of instruction to be considered great in the kingdom of heaven in Matthew 5:19.
Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:19)
Do you wish to be called great or least in the kingdom of heaven?
Grace is What Yeshua Did For Us At Calvary But Mercy We Obtain By Confessing and Forsaking Our Sins’ Against God
You mustn’t cover your sins. You must forsake them! Solomon says in Proverbs 28:13 the following:
He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
So how do you attain mercy?
You attain mercy states Solomon by confessing and forsaking your sins. If you harden your heart and say this is my tradition refusing to hear the voice of Yahweh who attempts to teach you through His people, you will not discover true and lasting peace that comes from being in a right relationship with the Creator.
26. Yahweh Blessed the Habitation of the Just
You cannot choose the tradition of your father, mother or grandparents over what the voice of Yahweh says. That’s a recipe for disaster. Curses will fall upon your house rather than blessings within your habitation warns King Solomon in Proverbs 3:33:
The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked: but he blesseth the habitation of the just.
Adam and eve had blessings in their habitation in the garden provided freely to them by Yahweh; however, they listened to the serpent who gave them nothing over Yahweh and ended up with curses in the wilderness: their new habitation. The trickster or con artist got them out of the protection of Yahweh under his control in the wilderness. He then could enslave them. He could use them for his gain before destroying them if they continued to walk in sin against God.
Adam and Eve became separated from God because they listened to Satan: the serpent in the Garden of Eden (Heaven or paradise). This deceiver appears harmless. He appears today as either nonexistent or harmless meanwhile he is the king of this world. He will come as an angel of light through those that he blinds: that’s the majority of those in this world. False teachers and preachers are like wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing under the control of Satan rather than under the power of the Holy Spirit. False teachers and preachers come to steal your money, resources and soul. The gospel warns us to be on alert. Do you know what red flags should alert you to these imposters?
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (Matthew 7:15)
Wolves want to devour you. They do not feed you with the truth in Yahweh’s words. Yahweh says the shepherd feeds the sheep, and the truth shall set us free. The truth gives us peace within. The fraudsters lie, cheat, steal, deceive and do not possess Yahweh’s Holy Spirit. They underneath their costumes are ravening wolves. They do not exhibit the fruit of the spirit:
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law (refers to ordinances).
And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.(Galatians 5:23-26; 6:1)
But the one who looks intently into the perfect law of freedom, and continues to do so–not being a forgetful hearer, but an effective doer–he will be blessed in what he does. (James 1:25)
Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the Law that gives freedom. (James 2:12)
For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. (2 Peter 2:21)
Of them the proverbs are true: “A dog returns to its vomit,” and, “A sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud.” (2 Peter 2:22)
What is the way of righteousness? The holy commandment is equated with the way of righteousness in 2 Peter 2:21. 2 Peter 2:22 further illustrates once God frees you from sin by giving you His Holy Spirit you must not return to the mud or once you eradicate sin by vomiting it out not to go back and swallow what made you sick in the first place.
Yahweh reminds us to search the scriptures for in them we will find eternal life. We are told to search the scriptures for ourselves and not be spoon fed with a scripture here and a scripture there to create a narrative that is against the gospel of the living God. False teachers and preachers omit certain scriptures to mislead God’s children. Then when the people aren’t blessed, they wonder why. When they lack inner peace, they wonder why. They suffer from a lack of knowledge kept by those who know the truth to make merchandise of them.
And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. (2 Peter 2:3)
For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive. (Romans 16:18)
For we are not like so many others, who peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as men sent from God. (2 Corinthians 2:17)
As you know, we never used words of flattery or any pretext for greed. God is our witness! (I Thessalonians 2:5)
Woe to them! They have traveled the path of Cain; they have rushed headlong into the error of Balaam; they have perished in Korah’s rebellion. (Jude 1:11)
But I have a few things against you, because some of you hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to place a stumbling block before the Israelites so they would eat food sacrificed to idols and commit sexual immorality. (Revelation 2:14)
Are you led by blind guides or are you led by the Holy Spirit of YAHWEH?
Is your guide blind or can your guide see?
And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch? (Luke 6:39)
Disregard them! They are blind guides. If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” (Matthew 5:14)
For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed. (Isaiah 9:16)
27. The Sabbath is a Sign Between God and His People
So to find inner peace you must find the true and living God.
Satan attempts to nullify the Sabbath (the fourth and most important commandment possibly) because the Sabbath allows God people to commune with Him and allows time for a relationship to develop with Yahweh on His holy day. No other day will do because God only made one day holy! Sabbath brings freedom! It brings peace! In discovering the purpose of the Sabbath, you can find Yahweh and develop a relationship that brings eternal life. That’s the true purpose of the the Sabbath: To walk with Yahweh.
Some may still wonder why should we keep the sabbath?
“For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore, the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. (Exodus 20:11)
We are to keep the Sabbath holy and rest because Yahweh commands us to do so. We must obey His voice.
Remember man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that procedeth out of the mouth of Yahweh. God spoke the fourth commandment down the mountain the very one Satan wishes we forget. We must remember to keep the sabbath day holy and rest. When we learn to follow God and keep His ways and commands to us, we receive mercy. Yahweh is very pleased.
More importantly we receive Yahweh’s gift of the Holy Spirit who will write Yahweh’s Ten Commandments (His will and character) on our hearts. The Holy Spirit will remove our old hard heart and give us a soft heart instead with the inscribing of the Ten Commandments: God’s voice spoken down the mountain on a special day in history before the people of God who all heard the thundering and commanding voice of God emanating from the top of the mountain.
The truth is to find inner peace requires that you find Yahweh by obeying His voice. If we have a relationship with Yahweh, He will have a relationship with us. We need to always maintain this relationship with our Creator.
28. Drawing Near to YAHWEH
In closing my parents would take communion for forty days when they sought an answer from the Lord. I have not tried this myself, but I certainly intend to do so. If you take communion for forty days and pray to Yahweh, he will come to you. My parents have done this three times when they needed Yahweh’s help. God always answered in a mighty way! Your heart will turn around my Dad says if you seek God for an answer in prayer for forty days while taking communion. Yahweh does not need you to know from Genesis to Revelation. You just need to go to Him. Ask Him to help you to understand His plan of salvation. Ask Him to help you to understand your purpose and make your soul fulfill your purpose.
When like the prodigal son we realize that we cannot help ourselves, we cannot find inner peace then we can look to the Father who is waiting on us to realize that our way cannot save us and separate us from our sins. We need to return to the Father and obey His voice to discover once again inner peace that has thus eluded us like peace slipped away from Cain. Remember to obey God’s voice and His Commandment results in life and peace in relationship with YAHWEH.
Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that procedeth out of the mouth of God: Ten Commandments spoken down the mountain. Ask God to give you wisdom as great as Solomon and faith that moves mountains.
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. (Matthew 7:7-8)
O Father who art in heaven, hallow be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Your Will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Father create in us a clean heart and renew a right spirit within us. Eradicate all sin from within us, help us to know our purpose and make our soul fulfill our purpose.
- Walk in prayer daily
- Read the Bible daily
- Confess your sins and reject them
- Submit your life to the Holy Spirit
- Obey the voice of YAHWEH
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. (John 14:13-21)
