Jesus Will Return Very Soon–Prepare to Flee City Places!

I just returned from a trip to a farm where a young Christian man and a young woman both told me of why they separately fled the city and each bought a farm.  The man bought a 20 acre farm; the young lady, a 30 acre farm.  They both appeared content and excited to share their experiences with farming.  The young lady moved because she said she ran out of food and was left hungry  during a severe winter storm in New York City.  The man left mostly for religious reasons. These fearless young people inspire me to become more self-sufficient.  This trip to a farm enlightened me to the possibilities of farm life for this city dweller.  I, also, got a tour of the Capitol in Washington D.C.

Taking a trip through the Capitol opened my eyes to see things that are never shown on television.  At one point I was told in a threatening fashion by a police officer to put away my camera.  I had just looked in shock at the door handle of the door leading into the floor of the US House of Representatives artistically fashioned as a snake coiled around shaft. Not something I would have hoped (or expected) to see adorning the doorway to the chamber where our nation’s laws are made.  My tour guide said immediately he had never noticed that snake on the door handle.  I looked up stunned to see a goat or ram’s head in all gold adorning the wall.  Upon researching this image after our visit, I concluded that it bore a striking similarity to the ancient (and contemporary) likeness of Baphomet, a decidedly Occultic representation.  These Satanic images shocked me; I did a double-take.  My husband tapped me to say he was noticing a lot of Satanic or pagan images in that same hallway leading into “holy of holies” of the Capitol building.  Then suddenly a police officer threateningly told me I’m not allowed to take pictures and to put away my camera–the officer appeared upset.  I passed through a door way with three or four additional officers telling us we could not take our phone, purse or bag into the heart of the Capitol building.  I could not take my Bible I happen to have in my bag, purse and camera into the “holy chambers” where the Congressional leaders from both the Senate and the House meet to vote. This is where the President speaks from when you see him speaking from the Capitol with the Congressional leaders.

The pagan version of the “holy of holies” in my mind is way smaller than the place appeared on television.  The place is made to appear and feel holy, but its the exact opposite.  There was definitely a spiritual element to the surroundings.  However, it could in no way be mistaken for a Christ-centered representation of the true and living God.  It reminded me of the Apostle Paul wandering the streets of Athens, Greece during his time.  Paul saw many “gods” there, including one monument to “an unknown god”.  In this “temple” on the Capitol Hill there were also many “gods” represented; but not the one true and Living God. [It’s just a false replica of the real Holy of Holies in Heaven where Yeshua is seated at the right hand of Yahweh.]

In the chamber there are seven rows of seats for four hundred or so leaders in this small chamber.  We were only allowed to explore the first two rows of seats.  The others were roped off with a threateningly looking police officer peering down on us watching our every move. It’s a semi-circular auditorium that wraps around with seating at an upper level separate from the Congressional leaders for outsiders including camera people and reporters–the entire space was round or circular.  At the front area are other desks and a rostrum and two speaker’s podiums.  The speaker’s podium in the foreground center is the place from which the President delivers the annual State of the Union Address.  Far above at the very top on the wall behind the press and people’s gallery are an array of graven images of various historical personages.  In the very center at the highest point is a representation of Moses (the Law Giver).  While delivering the State of the Union, the President would be looking directly up at Moses.  It is to wonder if Moses would have approved of his personage being represented as graven imagery.  As God gave Moses the Law, God specifically directed against “graven imagery” of such fashion (see Exodus 20:4).  I doubt Moses would have approved of his own likeness being exalted in deistic fashion.   As you look around the room there are other ancient people.  Due to the distance of these images from my location, I could not discern the names of all those represented.  My husband said he saw a replica of one of the Popes.

I call this place a replication of the Holy of Holies found in Yahweh’s kingdom because there was a golden ram’s head on the wall before I entered.  Snakes decorating a door handle made of metal.  It was in this very hallway corridor leading to the “holy of holies” that I was told by a police officer to put away my phone–signifying the sacredness of the place.  This tour of the Capitol made me realize that this is a temple of the seat of spiritual forces (of Satan) that control our nation and our world.  Before you disagree with me please take a guided tour and see for yourself.  There were monuments all around not to Yeshua or Yahweh the creator of all living things, but the monuments were those of pagan deities of long ago that Yahweh forbids us to worship.  The numerous pagan monuments took me by surprise because of the sheer volume, sizes and positioning.  I did not expect to see them so ubiquitously in our nation’s Capitol.  We are Babylon the city on a hill.

There is written in the Book of Revelation a passage that states:

“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.  And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.  And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on earth in the sight of men.”  (Revelation 13:11-13, KJV)

When we look about today, do we see markers of this “beast”?  Is it possible we could be living in the “belly” of this great beast?  No other great power has the capacity to do as our nation does on the scale that we do it…and on a global scale.  We can “make fire to come down from heaven to earth in the site of men.”   We were founded upon two abiding principles (two horns), individual liberty and religious freedom, and yet our nation does speak “as a dragon” as we make and foment wars in foreign lands that ultimately deny the people in those lands of these two basic things we are said to cherish.  This is something we must consider.

We must be sober and vigilant and consider all of these things.  When Satan came to tempt Jesus after 40 days in the wilderness, his third and most compelling temptation, offered to our Lord was the dominion over ALL the kingdoms of the world…to whom Satan had been given authority.  It is for us to assume that ALL does in fact mean ALL earthly kingdoms from the beginning until now.  There is no way our “kingdom” (nation) could not also be included amongst their number.  For sure there is a Godly impulse in aspects of our land.  Yet, the crafty serpent…that ancient of days…steadily and persistently works to break down and destroy vestiges of Godliness.  His focus can be seen in the halls of government.  Here he can deceive and such deception can have multiplying consequences far beyond the halls, because of the vast influence and great reach of our governmental apparatus.  Furthermore, the Enemy is subtle, but also vain. He wants to be sure that his mark is clear on “his” territory.  Thus, his symbology and suggested representations are sprinkled throughout these places so that his “mark” is upon them  (the “mark of the Beast”)….that it will be known.

We know that our Lord resides above all and has dominion.  But in the mystery of God’s plan the Enemy has been given “but a little time” to work his mischief.  To us this “little time” may not seem so.  But to God it is.  For to God “a day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years is as a day”.  We must bear this in mind and be patient and yet steady in our faithfulness to the ultimate working of God’s final plan.  His truth is sure.  He may tarry for “a little while” that “none might be lost”.  Yet his final victory, which was confirmed on Calvary’s Cross is certain in the eternal realm.  As we continue in the faith and remain faithful, we are heirs to this and will worship him in Glory very soon!

 

The Holy Spirit Will End Your Spiritual Hunger, Famine and Lack–Thoughts During Prayer Time 6-2-18

What are they hungry for?  They are hungry for the knowledge of the truth.  The true knowledge that sets people free.  Freedom isn’t free!  Freedom cost Yeshua His life.  He died to set the captives free.  The minds are captive.  The bodies are captive.  Slaves enslave one another with false ideologies.  You break down these false paradigms and reveal the illusions so people can see the truth.  Yeshua is the way to life.  Yeshua loves the Father therefore He kept His Father’s Commandments.  We ought to do the same.  Yahweh’s commandments are not grievous.  They set people (us) free from sin, bondage and separation from Yahweh our Creator.

Satan is a liar and father of lies.  We become set free from Satanic oppression!  Whom the Son of Yahweh sets free is free indeed.  You ought to get wisdom because it is more precious than diamonds and gold!  Wisdom comes from Yahweh.  If you ask your Father to give you wisdom, Yahweh will do so–ask Him to free you from sin too!

The true hunger is not for physical food but for spiritual food: The Word of Yahweh that can save human souls!

We are not fighting against flesh and blood but spiritual forces in high places.  Greater is the Holy Spirit in us than Satan and his demonic influences in the world.

 

When God Spoke To Me

Awoke To Hear God’s Voice

I woke up at 2:15 am one Thursday morning, and I sat up in bed in the dark and quietness of the morning  a bit groggy.  I thought about getting up and going to the bathroom. Next, I thought about going to read a chapter from my Bible and perhaps talk to God.  I paused my thoughts for a few seconds just sitting quietly in the dark not ready to get up.

Suddenly I heard softly and distinctly the words: “Hi Verna” in my head.  I felt astonished at first for I knew this thought did not come from me.  I’ve heard Yahweh’s Holy Spirit speak to me many times in the past directing my life that helped me in critical times and important periods.  This, however, was the only time the Holy Spirit spoke to me by my name simply saying hi to me–without any agenda to protect me, direct me or for some critical purpose.

The Holy Spirit apparently just wanted to communicate in a more personable manner that I felt unaccustomed to–not a foreign voice in my head just an unexpected and alluring comment: “Hi Verna”.

We all like being called by our names, and we all appreciate when people remember our names.  Our names are important to us.  We are typically open to others and positive towards them when they speak to us using our names.

 

God Speaks To Samuel

The Holy Spirit’s voice spoke slowly and calmly, and my first thought was God just said “Hi Verna.”  I suppose I should have said hi Yahweh, but I thought of the story of Samuel in I Samuel 3.  In the story of Samuel, the Lord called Samuel three times by name.  Samuel thought Eli called him so he said to Eli “Here am I.”  Eli discerned that God was calling Samuel and told Samuel the next time the Lord calls you by name say, “Speak, LORD, for Your servant is listening.”  If you’d like to read the story of 1 Samuel you can read it below otherwise skip over this section to continue reading the article below:

And the child Samuel ministered unto the LORD before Eli. And the word of the LORD was precious in those days; there was no open vision.
2 And it came to pass at that time, when Eli was laid down in his place, and his eyes began to wax dim, that he could not see;
3 And ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the LORD, where the ark of God was, and Samuel was laid down to sleep;
4 That the LORD called Samuel: and he answered, Here am I.
5 And he ran unto Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou calledst me. And he said, I called not; lie down again. And he went and lay down.
6 And the LORD called yet again, Samuel. And Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And he answered, I called not, my son; lie down again.
7 Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him.
8 And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And Eli perceived that the LORD had called the child.
9 Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, LORD; for thy servant heareth. So Samuel went and lay down in his place.
10 And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth.
11 And the LORD said to Samuel, Behold, I will do a thing in Israel, at which both the ears of every one that heareth it shall tingle.
12 In that day I will perform against Eli all things which I have spoken concerning his house: when I begin, I will also make an end.
13 For I have told him that I will judge his house for ever for the iniquity which he knoweth; because his sons made themselves vile, and he restrained them not.
14 And therefore I have sworn unto the house of Eli, that the iniquity of Eli’s house shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering for ever.
15 And Samuel lay until the morning, and opened the doors of the house of the LORD. And Samuel feared to shew Eli the vision.
16 Then Eli called Samuel, and said, Samuel, my son. And he answered, Here am I.
17 And he said, What is the thing that the LORD hath said unto thee? I pray thee hide it not from me: God do so to thee, and more also, if thou hide any thing from me of all the things that he said unto thee.
18 And Samuel told him every whit, and hid nothing from him. And he said, It is the LORD: let him do what seemeth him good.
19 And Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground.
20 And all Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the LORD.
21 And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the LORD.

Like Samuel I didn’t know how to respond. This never happened to me before.  I know of no one who has spoke of this occurring with them except in the story of Samuel.  So I just went to the bathroom and pondered the incident while drifting back to sleep in my bed.

 

Seeking Advice From Christian Counselors

When I woke up I clearly remembered the incident.  I asked a christian coworker who told me she suspects God intends to start communicating with me.  I asked my mother who said “praise God … that’s great … what a blessing!” Deep down I knew it was God.

The question I had was how was I suppose to respond.  What does God want?  What should I be doing? Am I on a new mission that will need me to communicate more with God?  I just didn’t know.

I had so many questions.  I didn’t have time to listen; I was too busy thinking.

How many of us are too busy to hear from God?  We want Yahweh to direct our lives.  We pray for Yahweh to mold us into His Son’s character.  We ask Yahweh to make us a light that lead others to Him.  We ask Yahweh to do so much for us.  Then when Yahweh tries to speak to us through our Spirit with His still small voice, we cannot seem to quiet ourselves down long enough to listen to what He has to tell us.  That was my problem in my excitement. I ran to everyone and my computer to understand what Yahweh wanted to tell me instead of running to Yahweh to say speak LORD your servant is listening.

In order for Yahweh to direct our lives, we have to spend time listening to Him. We have to read His words daily and stay constantly in prayer throughout our day.

I prayed to Yahweh diligently each day by phone with my husband heading to work about family, friends, coworkers, lands to establish in a foreign country, witty ideas of inventions, fulfilling Yahweh’s will for my life and the lives of family members and allowing Yahweh to possess one hundred percent control of our lives.  Now after seeking Yahweh for these things for innumerable days, weeks and months suddenly this breakthrough moment with Yahweh’s Holy Spirit occurs.  I’m excited, but I forget to tell Yahweh to speak and that His servant is listening.  I didn’t recall in the morning what Eli told Samuel to do exactly, and I was too busy thinking to stop to listen and respond to the Holy Spirit.

Then a couple days on a Friday evening on the Sabbath, I later I did some research on the internet.  In researching what this encounter from God might mean I stumbled upon this website that gave me insight by Mary Lou Caskey in an article titled the following: What Does It Mean When God Calls You by Your Name?

Mary Lou Caskey says God is “calling me to the honor of enjoying His presence while He enjoys being with me!”  She ends by saying, “May you enjoy having God “summon” you by name, knowing that He delights in you!”  Finally she adds: “What does it mean to you that God delights in you?”

Bob Fraser wrote the following review below Mary’s article that resonated with me:

Psalm 37:4-6.  To “delight in someone you have to get to know them.  God is inviting me to get to know Him.”

Psalm 37:4-7 below is one of my favorite verses in the Bible:

4 Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

Lately the desires in my heart is how to establish a business in a foreign country and allow family members to enjoy the business too; however, my life is here in America.  How do I take this leap of faith and would doing so be wise?  What does God think and want me to do?  I’ve been praying on this and waiting on the Yahweh to direct my footsteps.  I do not want to live my life in fear limiting my possibilities, but at the same time I do not want to make an unwise decision.  So I pray daily and wait on Yahweh.

When I heard the Holy Spirit speak one morning on May 17, 2018 the following words: “Hi Verna” I knew this was significant moment in my life. I’m going to Yahweh and say speak Lord for your servant is listening.

When God speaks to you how will you respond?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Quotes to Encourage and Guide Your Life

The Bible verses below speak to me. I stuck in a few Confucius quotes that resonated with me too.  You can skip these or read them if you need encouragement and allow Yahweh to strengthen you through His words below:

But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. (Isaiah 43:1 KJV)

“Remember these things, O Jacob, And Israel, for you are My servant; I have formed you, you are My servant, O Israel, you will not be forgotten by Me. (Isaiah 44:21 KJV)

“Education brings confidence, Confidence brings hope and Hope brings peace.”

–Confucius.

Confucius was a Chinese teacher, editor, politician and philosopher born in 551 BC in the Zou, Lu, Zhou Kingdom.  His ideas influenced the civilization of East Asia.

Since I’m seeking wisdom from Yahweh in directing my steps, I’m open to how Yahweh may lead me.  I stumbled upon this second quote by Confucius below:

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”
― Confucius

In continuing to search for wisdom I come upon another great quote and another to pause and ponder in helping me in my decisions.

“The man of wisdom is never of two minds;
the man of benevolence never worries;
the man of courage is never afraid.”
― Confucius

“To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order; we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right.”
Confucius

Ephesians 2:10 For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them.

When we draw near to Yahweh, He will draw near to us.  May you invite Yahweh into your life daily so He knows He is welcome.  May your life light the way for others to seek Yahweh the true light of the world.

As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. …

Teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.

 

 

What is Truth?

What is truth? Is truth absolute?

Truth is Yahweh’s Ten Commandments.  Truth is anything that’s not a lie or untrue.  Truth is just true.  What’s not true is not truth.

My dictionary says truth is the quality or state of being true: he had to accept the truth of her accusation.  

-(also the truth) that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality: tell me the truth/she found out the truth about him.

-a fact or belief that is accepted as true: the emergence of scientific truths/the fundamental truths about mankind.

Discussing the matter further with a Bible scholar led to the notes below to help shed some light on what exactly is truth for those who wonder:

  1. Whatever Yahweh says is truth.
  2. Yeshua died for you, and He is going to be your judge–now that’s truth!
  3. Anything red in the Bible in the four gospels is truth; whatever Yeshua spoke is truth.
  4. Whatever Yahweh spoke is truth.
  5. Romans 1:16 says, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”  This is true and is truth.
  6. Yeshua says my word is truth. John 17:17 says, “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”
  7. Matthew 24:35 states, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.”
  8. John 5:24 says, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.” Believe is the key, and this is truth.
  9. It comes back to Jesus (Yeshua)–everything in red is truth to make it simple. The church doesn’t put emphasis on Jesus (Yeshua).  Peter and Paul have some differences.
  10.  Mark 8:38 says, “Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
  11. Romans 1:16 says, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
  12. Romans 2:16 says, “In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.”   How are you going to be judged? God judges the sectrets of men according to His gospel.
  13. Ephesians 1:12-13 says, “That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,”If you don’t believe the gospel, you don’t have God’s Holy Spirit. Trust in Christ after you hear the gospel of truth.

     

  14. Men shall not live by bread alone but by every word that procedeth out of the mouth of Yahweh–see Deuteronomy 4.  Yahweh spoke the Ten Commandments out of His mouth.

Freedom isn’t Free

Yeshua died to pay the penalty for our freedom.  Those of us who understand what Yeshua did for us also understand the importance of fleeing sin.  We understand what sin is and we understand that Yahweh’s Ten Commandments define sin for us.  Once we come to an understanding of how repulsive sin truly is to Yahweh, we come to detest sin too!  We cannot continue to walk in sin (breaking Yahweh’s Ten Commandments) and say we know God and love God–absolutely ridiculous!

However, Satan would love for you to believe it is okay to continue to walk in sin until you walk into the kingdom of Yahweh.  Those who believe this lie are in for a rude awakening when they appear before Yahweh on judgement day.  Luke 13:27 says, “But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.”  Yahweh will not accept wrongdoing: sin!

Sin is what originally caused our separation from Yahweh.

John defines what sin is: the breaking of Yahweh’s Ten Commandments.  The Holy Spirit now writes the Ten Royal Commandments of love in believers hearts and minds by the Holy Spirit given to believers who obey His Ten Commandments.  We can possess the character of Yahweh when we receive Yahweh’s Holy Spirit.

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 14:21 KJV)

Has the king of our universe revealed Himself to you to let you know He lives and abides in you?  Is He directing your footsteps as He directed Yeshua here on this earth?  Are you in the will of Yahweh?  Do you know His will for your life?  These are important questions that every child of Yahweh should know the answers to without reservations if they know Yahweh.  If not, please ponder these questions and ask Yahweh to reveal the answer to you–daily ask Yahweh for wisdom.

We may know about Yahweh from sitting in church and reading our Bibles, but many of you reading this may not personally know Yahweh!  That’s okay, you can get to know Him.

Those who truly know Yahweh and walk with Yahweh, reject sin in their lives.  They hear His still small voice and obey Him because they know Him.  They ask Yahweh to help them to empower them by the power of His Holy Spirit to overcome sin in their lives.

I know I pray often asking Yahweh to empower my life and to help me do His will daily through the power of His Holy Spirit; I give Yahweh one hundred percent control over my life to complete His will for me each day.

Would you like to know Yahweh personally and know that He is guiding your footsteps?

Life is so much easier when you can turn to Yahweh in times of need.

Listen to what King David said in Psalm 51:1-7 below:

Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

2 Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

Would you like to be washed clean today like King David?

Pray and ask the Lord to have mercy on you and to blot out your transgressions, ask Him clean you from all your sins, tell Him you have sinned against Him and only Him and done evil in His sight, ask Him to make you know wisdom and purge you and wash you clean and make you to be whiter than snow.  Study King David’s prayer and offer your own sincere version from the heart. What God did for King David, He will surely do for you. David was a cold blooded murder and adulterous among other things, but Yahweh loved Him and forgave Him and washed Him clean.  He will do the same for you if you are sincere as David was remorseful for His many sins against Yahweh.

How does fleeing sin benefit you?  It may appear like an insurmountable mountain in your life.  You, however, won’t truly know and experience the benefits until you reject sin and choose life in obedience to God.

You will then come to understand that peace is possible through faith in Yahweh.  Both faith and obedience  with the help of Yahweh’s Spirit helps us to overcome challenges that come to each of us in this life.

When you know the King and fear disobeying Him, you really do not fear what challenges may come.  You begin to become fearless as you observe Yahweh work out obstacles in your life and break you free from your old life of sin, misery, pain, fear and a lifestyle leading to death.

Sure you will have stresses and uncertainties at times, but you have Yahweh to turn to who will hear you and help you.  You also have the Comforter who will teach you all things pertaining to life and Yahweh.  Eventually you become more and more fearless knowing Yahweh is with you, and He will never leave you or forsake you.

Perfect peace have those who love Yahweh’s laws (Ten Commandments) based on love.  God’s laws of love make life worth living.  If love (God’s Royal Laws) failed to exist, we would eventually suffer and die a miserable death.

Satan wants exactly that!  So he lies to Christians and all of us constantly telling us that we cannot overcome sins (mountains) in our lives.  What does Yahweh say? We must reject sin and live.  Joseph fled sin.  Abraham was considered a friend of God because he did what was right in the eyes of God.  Abraham obeyed God’s commandments, His statutes and His laws.

Let’s look at what the Apostle James had to say who was the brother of Yeshua and the head of the church in James 2:17-26 about the importance of doing good works in obedience along with faith in Yahweh below:

17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.

19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?

22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?

23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.

24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.

25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?

26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Wouldn’t you like to have Yahweh as your friend as Abraham had God as His friend?  Obedience is truly the key that unlocks the door back into the kingdom of Yahweh: our Eden or our Heavenly Home!

Satan wants to destroy you and living in sin will lead ultimately to your destruction and continual separation from God!

Yeshua came to pay the price of your sin so you should walk away from your sinful lifestyle, repent of your sin against Yahweh like King David and ask Yahweh to help you overcome all sin in your life.  You cannot know Yahweh if you do not understand His ultimate goal and plan for your life.

He wants to set you free from sin, pain, death suffering and Satan, and He wants to give you the free gift of eternal life–bought and payed for by the blood of Yeshua at Calvary!  He’s not going to force His will on you.  He knocks at the door of your heart, but you and only you can let Him in.  If you listen and obey Him, He will set you from sin and the fear of death.

Now that freedom comes at a cost.  Yeshua had to pay the price with His life to set you free from bondage to sin.  You must freely accept this free gift, repent for your sin against God and beg Yahweh to help you to walk righteously before Him the rest of your life.  Whom the Son sets free from Satan and sin is truly free indeed!

You, however, are not free to continue to walk in sin–presumptuous sin will lead to death!  Yeshua isn’t going to die again for you.

What did Paul say in Romans 6: 1-2 about continuing to live in sin once Yeshua’s blood has set you free from sin and death?

What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?

2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

Paul is clear that we set free should not return to our sinful lifestyles.

Do not be like the sick dog who returns to his vomit.  Once you understand sin will destroy you, you should flee sin.  Yahweh sets you free from bondage to sin and washes you clean so please do not return to the mess of sin.  Solomon the wisest man that ever lived once said in Proverbs 26:11 the following:

As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his foolishness.

Once you come to know the truth about the destructive nature of sin, please do not return to your sinful lifestyle that leads ultimately to death.

You should walk in newness of life and teach others how to escape sin, suffering and death too.  We are ambassadors sent by Yahweh to help others overcome sin and the penalty of sin: death.  Let’s become the salt of the earth and light that lead others to the true light (Yeshua the only way back into the kingdom of Yahweh).  So, they can find true freedom in knowing Yahweh who loves us so much!

The beloved apostle John was Yeshua’s favorite apostle.  He left John to care for His mother just before He died on Calvary.  John loved Yeshua very much, and Yeshua loved John.  This is what John teaches that Yeshua taught Him to teach to us.

12 Verily, verily, (truly, truly) I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

13 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; (John 14:12-16)

That Comforter known as the Holy Spirit of Yahweh will write Yahweh’s character in your heart and mind so you reflect Yeshua and Yahweh.  They will come to live within you and teach you all things.

What I write about I know because of my personal walk with Yahweh over the years.  Yahweh has led me through many storms, I’ve past through spiritual fires, I’ve walked through the valley of the shadow of death.  I’ve heard Yahweh’s still small voice more than I can recall.  There is so much beauty and peace when you come to know Yahweh.  There is freedom from the bondage of sin; there is freedom with the Spirit of Yahweh living within you.  True freedom comes at a high price for us sinners saved by grace.  Let’s not continue to walk in sin.  It is sin that separates us from our God.  Flee sin and live through the power of Yahweh’s Holy Spirit.  Listen to the Father of lights who tells us to obey Him and accept His Royal Laws of Love so we do not sin against Him or our brothers and sister’s in Yeshua.

Like a cat hates water, you ought hate sin!

John 14:14 was one of my grandfather’s favorite verse in the Bible–quote it often and be blessed!

14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

Ask Yahweh to free you from all sin in your life and rest assured He will.  Have a little faith for faith can move the mountains that separate you from your God!  The truth shall set you free so hear these truths, receive them and receive the gift of eternal life by renouncing and eliminating sin against Yahweh from your life with His help–a sincere prayer goes a very long way!

True freedom from sin with the help of Yahweh’s Holy Spirit the Comforter awaits you!

You are no longer ignorant.  You know the truth; you are no longer blind.  So open your spiritual eyes and see the truth and walk in truth and in newness of life by the power of Yahweh’s Holy Spirit empowering you from within.

When Paul was going out to kill the Christians, He was struck down blind.  God winks at the ignorant.  God had to blind Paul’s physical eyes so he could use his spiritual eyes to see the truth.

Romans 8:9-11  (KJV)

9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus (Yeshua) from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

Satan Strikes Again–This Time He Strikes Out!

Paul said to count it all joy when you fall into divers temptation.  Though the enemy is attacking you from all sides, the battle is not yours says the Lord.  Yahweh has already defeated your enemy and my enemy.  When the spiritual assaults start flying and your head seems to ache, your body becomes weary and your soul becomes low, you must remember to stay courageous in the fight.  Yahweh is fighting on your behalf.  You must pray, ask God to forgive you of any sins, relax, and take one step at a time.  Yahweh will never leave you nor forsake you.

You may choose to meditate on these words: Peace be still and know that I am God.  I found that these words carried me through many difficult storms.  What causes people to drown in a storm is when they panic.  You must calm yourself in the storms of life so you do not panic.  These words will calm your spirit and physical body so you can walk through the storms of life.

Remember, you must not forget to take your burdens to the Lord for He cares for you and me.  When you pray, recognize that Yahweh hears you and He will answer your prayers.  You must wait on the Lord and be of good courage.  Do not waver in your faith in Yahweh.  Though the challenges seem to come from every angle, yet you will rise above the storms and challenges.  Though you feel tired, sick and your head hurts, you must stay strong knowing that Yahweh will see you through this next challenge.

I’ve had many of headaches and challenges, but my God has never let me down.  He will not let you down either.  You must repent of all your sins and ask God to help you overcome all sins in your life.  Rest assured God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that you and I may ask or think!

I pray that you pray for yourself like I pray for you.  I pray for you that you will be strong in the Lord and be able to withstand all the fiery darts of the enemy.

duerer-prayer

Dear Yahweh, you are a faithful and just God.  I pray that you bind up the evil spirits in the lives of those who read my words.  I rebuke the evil spirits in the lives of those who read these words.  I rebuke every evil and demonic spirit that comes against your child and children, and I cast those evil spirits as far as the east is from the west away from them.  I ask that you give your child wisdom on a foundation of righteousness.  Please help them to learn to love as you love.  Help them to submit their lives one hundred percent over unto you dear Lord.  May they possess a peace that surpasses all understanding.  May your Holy Spirit indwell them, empower them from within, lead them and direct their lives.

When others see them, let them see you.   When others hear them, let others hear you.  Bless the work of the their hands, bless their minds and help them to not only see the purpose you have placed them on this earth for, but I pray that you would make their souls fulfill their purpose.

Thank you Father for the air that I breathe, the fresh water that I drink, the pure foods you provide and the life giving energy that comes from you.

Satan your are a defeated foe!  Your days are numbered and your time is quickly coming to an end!  Satan you have no authority or power in the lives of God’s children! I cast you out today and all your demonic forces.  I demand that you get out and stay out of the lives of God’s people.  Dear Lord I ask that you help your children to walk Holy before you all the days of their lives and that they meditate on your Ten Commandments, reject sin, repent and walk Holy before you through the power of your Holy Spirit.  I ask all these things in Jesus Yeshua’s precious name! Amen! May the peace of Yahweh go before you, behind you and within you wherever you may go.

We are looking forward to seeing our Lord and being in the coming kingdom with Yahweh.  I pray that those who read these words and I be found worthy to enter into the kingdom.  Dear Lord help us through your Holy Spirit to be found worthing in Yeshua’s (Jesus’) name I pray.

Beloved, may the peace of God be with you today and forever more!  Peace be still and know that He is God!  May your kingdom come and your will (Ten Commandments) be done on earth as it is done in heaven! Amen!

Satan you are a defeated foe–get behind me!  Man shall not live by bread alone, but man and woman shall live by every word that procedeth out of the mouth of Yahweh: Ten Commandments spoken down the mountain by Yahweh and written on tablets of stone (representing their permanency) by the very finder of Yahweh!  What a special event this was when Yahweh spoke the Ten Commandments to the people!

ten-commandments-tablets-5548826

Death reigned and Satan reigned until Yahweh spoke these Ten Commandments.  Beloved I pray Satan strikes out and that you are set free from the chain and power of sin that has truly wreaked havoc in your life via a sincere prayer to yahweh right now on your knees!

How Can You Get The Holy Spirit To Work Through You?

 

 

The Holy Spirit Works Behind the Scenes and is Even All Around Us

We have not because we ask not.  Yeshua said in John 14:14 the following: “If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.”  So start asking Yahweh to do the impossible in your life: to wash you and set you free from sin.

Sin is the breaking of Yahweh’s Ten Commandments that He spoke down the mountain in Exodus 20.  Yahweh is not a God to change.  What He spoke down the mountain and wrote on two tablets of stone still stands today–whether we want to accept it or not!

Yahweh now allows the Holy Spirit to write the laws in our hearts so that we can become children of the most High God reflecting His character.  When Yahweh gives you His Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God will write His Royal Laws in our hearts and minds.  He will set us free from bondage to sin, which leads to pain, suffering and death.  The Holy Spirit will work through us to reflect the character of Yeshua and Yahweh so we can walk holy before our Creator.

So lay your heavy burdens down (today): sin and the consequences of sin.  Lift up Yahweh’s light burden: keep His Ten Commandments.

Then Yeshua will pray to the Father to give you the Comforter or Holy Spirit who will do the work that you cannot do: set you free from sin and help you to reflect the character of  both Yahweh and Yeshua.  Let the Holy Spirit empower you today by obeying Yahweh’s voice: His Royal Laws (The Ten Commandments).  

Then and only then will you come to know the Holy Spirit who will do the work through you forever.  When you obey Yahweh’s voice to flee sin, you will possess peace.

This is the gift of Yahweh.  Your life will never be the same again!

You will be eternally blessed because you made the wisest decision of your life. Open up your heart, repent, flee sin and allow Yahweh’s Holy Spirit to mold you into the character and reflection of Yahweh and Yeshua: love.

Yeshua says if you keep His commandments, you love Him.  John 14:15 says, “If you love me, keep my commandments.”  This is clear that to love Yahweh requires us to keep His commandments.

How many of us make excuses to dismiss any one of Yahweh’s Ten Commandments?  

Well without obedience to Yahweh’s Ten Commandments, there can be no love toward Yahweh.   With love lacking for Yahweh, we cannot expect to get the free gift of Yahweh’s Holy Spirit.  Without the Holy Spirit, we will not possess the power of the Holy Spirit to teach us all things pertaining to Yahweh and life.  Nor will we possess the power to overcome sin over our lives.

Without the Holy Spirit indwelling us, we will suffer heartache and pain day after day,  week after week, month after month and year after year.  This will occur until we hopefully come to the understanding that sin destroys us.  We must learn to hate a life of sin that leads to pain, suffering and death.

When you get fed up and disillusioned with your situation, you can change course.  You can reach out for Yahweh to help you.  Yahweh is waiting patiently for us to let Him into our lives so He can help us eradicate sin. Here are some simple steps to follow–I call them a 7 point plan in no particular order that worked for me and will certainly work for you too!

  1. Ask Yahweh to forgive you of all your sins.
  2. Ask Yahweh to help you overcome all sins in your life.
  3. Wait on Yahweh to answer your prayers.
  4. You must pray and possess faith that He not only hears you, but He will answer you.
  5. Remember, faith without works is dead.  So you must believe that Yahweh is real, and He will answer your prayers.
  6. You must search for Yahweh with all your heart, mind and soul.
  7. You ought to go to Yahweh with a humble and repentant heart–on your knees.

Then, Yeshua will pray to Yahweh to give us the Comforter who will abide with us forever–John 14:16.  When we receive the Holy Spirit, He will manifest Himself to us.  The world will not see Him or know Him, but you will know Him.

John the beloved said, “Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but you know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.”  

Does the Holy Spirit dwell with you?

Would you like the Holy Spirit to dwell in you and work through you?

Then you must read Yeshua’s words from Yahweh, believe in them and do as He commands!  There is no other way to salvation.  Yeshua died to cover your sin and mine.  He payed our penalty.  So you and I must reject sin to live.  The lie that Yeshua did it all on the cross and you have nothing to do is a lie from the pit of hell!  If you do not have to do nothing, Satan would not have to do anything either.  Sin leads to death and those who continue to walk there in do not possess wisdom.  If they say they know Yahweh, they lie!  It’s really that simple!

So if you want the power of Yahweh’s Holy Spirit to work and dwell in you, you must ask Yahweh to help you overcome all sin in your life–keep The Ten Commandments Yahweh spoke down the mountain to the congregation of people and these Royal Laws He wrote for us on tables of stone (now written in believer’s hearts).
