How to Acquire A Great Home In Yahweh’s Kingdom

 Yahweh says seek first the kingdom of  God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you–Matthew 6:33.

 

Stop and Ponder for a moment

       ⇒ Why prepare for the Kingdom of Heaven?

       ⇒ How do we go about preparing to meet our Creator?

       ⇒ Who is this great Creator that designed everything we see and don’t see (invisible things) around us?

       ⇒ How  do we get back into Heaven and see Yahweh face to face again?

       ⇒ How does having Yahweh in our lives change our everyday lives?

       

I pose these questions so those seeking have an idea what they can do to search out and discover Yahweh and his kingdom, to answer the major questions of this life, for yourself. 

       As a science major I know the intricate details of our bodies down to the molecular/microscopic level.  I am a problem solver by nature. You can see I think scientifically, and I am eternally curious about the physical world around me.  I am even more curious about the spiritual world around me. I want us to look beyond the physical to search out the invisible God and discover a supernatural and spiritual God that works and lives within each of us. I am not intimidated by a challenge.  We just must allow Yahweh (God) into our lives.  Yahweh can always be with us around us if we welcome Him in our lives.  Yahweh grants each of us seventy years to get to know Him and to find our way back to Heaven with Him.  Some of us die earlier and others live significantly longer due to varied reasons.  

       This website and this article are like a scientific journal.  I share my many great experiences with the living God.  I will share some of my spiritual knowledge and insights of this great God.  I have spent a life time, forty plus years, tracking down Yahweh.  Eternally searching for the Creator.  I have found this spiritual being and know Him well.  There is far greater for me to discover, but I feel confident that I know our Creator.  If you’d like a relationship with this awesome God (Yahweh), please continue reading, ask and answer your questions, study, and follow my writings on my website.

Walking by Faith  

       I learned to walk by faith and not by sight, we all must learn to do the same. We must use our spiritual eyes, ears and  bodies to search for Yahweh with all our heart, mind and soul.  We must believe that He is real and His word is true to discover Him for ourselves.  We should test this truth by seeing that His promises are real.  You will see that He is faithful when we have faith. 

       My parents emigrated to this country, with five children and started their lives over in a foreign land: here in America.  My father took his father’s advice to take his family to a new country (My father had lost both his parents within forty days of each other).  Even though I was young, I knew the struggles my parents faced. I noticed it all, despite their struggles I grew up incredibly happy and carefree.  I had everything I needed and wanted.  We were blessed in that we always had a roof over our heads and three meals a day. We actually had plenty; both my parents were hard workers and they sacrificed for their now six children to succeed in life. Though my parents’ lives were much better and easier in Belize, they were determined not to return and make it work.  They knew the lives of their six children would be better here in America.  

       When I was a young person, in my early a teens, I prayed and asked Yahweh to help me acquire my own home by the age of twenty eight. My concern was to ensure that my parents would have a place to retire in without a monthly rent.  So, one day in the summer, I prayed with a sincere and earnest heart, at about thirteen years old, that Yahweh would help me to somehow get my own place and not need to rent before the age of twenty-eight.  

 

Yahweh answered my prayer in a supernatural way

When I acquired a home, long story short, just before my twenty-seventh birthday.  It is now the home my parents are retired in today, living rent and mortgage free, thanks to Yahweh answering the prayer I made so many years prior.  Yahweh heard the prayer of a humble teenager all those years ago.  He has heard and answered my innumerable prayers from childhood and even today.

God is no respecter of persons.

What he has done for me, He will do for any of His children who seek Him with a sincere and earnest heart and obey His words. 

Knowing and understanding Yahweh’s words to us will help us prepare ourselves to successfully acquire the keys to the Kingdom of Yahweh rather than meeting rejection by a Holy God.

John said in Revelation 22:13-20 the following words:

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.  Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.  For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.  I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.  And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.  He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

Yehsua Jesus is coming quickly to judge the world.

Prepare for His coming and avoid being tossed out like a dog.  Dogs are not welcome, nor murderers or idolaters nor those who love to lie–see Revelation 22:15. 

The word dog triggered my thoughts penned here today to share with you. 

Let’s take a look at the word dog:

Literally: a dog, scavenging canine

Figuratively: a spiritual predator who feeds off others.

Now it’s meaning from Strong’s Concordance:

In Strong’s Concordance a dog is kyon pronounced phonetically (koo-ohn)–2965 in Strong’s Concordance.  A dog is universally despised in the East.  A loose dog was disdained in ancient times and viewed as a “mooch pooch” that ran about as a scavenger says Strong’s Concordance.

 

Avoid the Dogs

Let us not live life like a dog–living in a predatory fashion.  You should connect with the life giver and get your resources from your connection and relationship with Yahweh through the power of His Holy Spirit.  You ought to feed others and not feed off of others. Those truly connected to the life giver will possess the life giver within them.

 

They will be like a tree planted by the living water. Their leaf will never wither–Psalm 1. 

In conclusion as a young person I prepared to acquire a home for myself and family.   Wanting to live more bountifully in the physical world, but now I’m preparing for my spiritual home.  I’m not leaving anything to chance.  I know if I prepare well, Yahweh will help me acquire a home in the spiritual kingdom.  I know how to acquire my spiritual home.  I just need to ask Yahweh for what I want, and He will hear my humble prayers and answer me. 

Remember Yahweh is no respecter of person, He will answer you too if you love Him with all your heart, mind and soul.  Obedience is the key.   I leave you to ponder the following verses below in John 14:12-16:

12 Verily, verily, 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;

That Comforter, Yahweh’s Holy Spirit, will teach you all things and guide you into your Heavenly Home so your not left out like a stray dog. 

How great and joyous your life would become living eternally with your Heavenly Father? Yahweh loves you so much. He took the time to create you in His very image.  Your a child of the King. Don’t you want to see God face to face in His kingdom soon? 

Your future home tomorrow depends on your preparation today friends!  Ask Yeshua (Jesus) to help you acquire a place and a home in Heaven–ask today and everyday knowing for sure that Yahweh hears you.  This world is nothing compared to acquiring your place in your real home in the presence of Yahweh.  Prepare for heaven my friends and you will eternally be grateful!  


Finding Eternal Inner Peace In Relationship With YAHWEH

 

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.

Job said,

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. 

  1. Walk in prayer daily
  2.  Read the Bible daily
  3.  Confess your sins and reject them
  4. Submit your life to the Holy Spirit
  5. 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)

Reflections of Seneca

Seneca a Roman stoic philosopher, tutor and later advisor to emperor Nero has some keen insights into human nature that I believe would align with the teachings of Yeshua.  I cannot speak for the character and all saying of Seneca.   I am sharing some wisdom from a secular person that struck me.

All cruelty springs from weakness.

It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that things are difficult.

The important thing about a problem is not its solution, but the strength we gain in finding the solution.

No one can lead a happy life, or even one that is bearable, without the pursuit of wisdom, and that the perfection of wisdom is what makes the happy life, although even the beginnings of wisdom make life bearable.  Yet this conviction, clear as it is, needs to be strengthened and given deeper roots through daily reflection; making noble resolutions is not as important as keeping the resolutions you have made already.

Drunkenness is nothing but voluntary madness.

It is the characteristic of a weak and diseased mind to fear the unfamiliar.

It is only luxury and avarice that make poverty grievous to us; for it is a very small matter that does our business, and when we have provided against cold, hunger, and thirst, all the rest is but vanity and excess. 

Eyes will not see when the heart wishes them to be blind. 

We become wiser by adversity; prosperity destroys our appreciation of the right.

 

Be not too hasty either with praise or blame; speak always as though you were giving evidence before the judgement-seat of the Gods. 

The primary sign of a well-ordered mind is a man’s ability to remain in one place and linger in his own company. 

He is most powerful who governs himself.

 

Be wary of the man who urges an action in which he himself incurs no risk.

Shall I tell you what the real evil?  To cringe to the things that are called evils, to surrender to them our freedom, in defiance of which we ought to face any suffering.

We are members of one great body.  Nature planted in us a mutual love, and fitted us for a social life.  We must consider that we were born for the good of the whole.

We are mad, not only individually, but nationally.  We check manslaughter and isolated murders; but what of war and the much vaunted crime of slaughtering whole peoples?

Begin at once to live, and count each day as a separate life.

The mind is never right but when it is at peace within itself.

To err is human.  To repeat error is of the Devil.

These individuals have riches just as we say that we ‘have a fever,’ when really the fever has us. 

There is nothing the wise man does reluctantly.

There is no evil that does not promise inducements.  Avarice promises money; luxury, a varied assortment of pleasures; ambition, a purple robe and applause.  Vices tempt you by the rewards they offer.

The Fates guide those who go willingly.  Those who do not, they drag.

The willing, destiny guides them; the unwilling, destiny drags them. 

It’s all in your head, you have the power to make things seem hard or easy or even amusing.  The choice is yours. 

What difference does it make how much you have?  What you do not have amounts to much more.  

What need is there to weep over parts of life?  The whole of it calls for tears.

We should every night call ourselves to an account: What infirmity have I mastered today? What passions opposed?  What temptation resisted? What virtue acquired? Our vices will abate of themselves if they be brought every day to the shrift. 

I will govern my life and thoughts as if the whole world were to see the one and read the other, for what does it signify to make anything a secret to my neighbor, when to God, who is the searcher of our hearts, all our privacies are open?

The best cure for anger is delay.

Never to wrong others takes one a long way towards peace of mind. 

Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.

He who asks with timidity invites a refusal.  

Do the best you can. . . enjoy the present. . . rest satisfied with what you have.  

True friends are the whole world to one another; and he that is a friend to himself is also a friend to mankind.  Even in my studies the greatest delight I take is of imparting it to others; for there is no relish to me in the possessing of anything without a partner.

Money does all things for reward.  Some are pious and honest as long as they thrive upon it, but if the devil himself gives better wages, they soon change their party.  

Study rather to fill your mind than your coffers; knowing that gold and silver were originally mingles with dirt, until avarice or ambition parted them.  

In every good man a God doth dwell.

Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.

When I think over what I have said, I envy dumb people.

The bad fortune of the good turn their faces  up to heaven; the good fortune of the bad bows their heads down to the earth.

Night brings our troubles to the light, rather than banishes them.

Everywhere is nowhere.  When a person spends all his time in foreign travel, he ends by having many acquaintances, but no friends.

He who is brave is free.

He who dreads hostility too much is unfit to rule.

Ignorant people see life as either existence or non-existence, but wise men see it beyond both existence and non-existence to something that transcends them both; this is an observation of  the Middle Way.

You want to live-but do you know how to live?  You are scared of dying-and, tell me, is the kind of life you lead really any different from being dead?

As the mother’s womb holds us for ten months, making us ready, not for the womb itself, but for life, just so, though our lives, we are making ourselves ready for another birth…Therefore look forward without fear to that appointed hour- the last hour of the body, but not of the soul…That day, which you fear as being the end of all things, is the birthday of your eternity.

 

 

 

Thank You Heavenly Father!

Good and bad will pull at you, but when God wants you to do something HE will get your attention!

One night a few days back my sister and I spoke on the phone as we usually do when I remembered a very significant time in my life – 2005. The week of June 18th, 2005 to be exact. God gave a message to a complete stranger to confirm what He had already put on my heart to do!

A few years before, my sister joined a church that I periodically attended. After a couple of years, she decided to get baptized in the summer of 2003. After witnessing how God worked in her life, several family members decided to get baptized: Our Dad, brother, myself, as well as I decided to dedicate my son to God. We started our six week Bible study to prepare for baptism at the end of April or early May. Our pastor wanted to ensure we understood fundamental things in the Bible and that life wouldn’t magically get easier. God will allow us to be tested.

We finished our six week Bible study and looked forward to my son’s dedication to God on June 18th, 2005.  Then my dad, brother, and I would be baptized the following Sabbath. A week before my son’s dedication, my husband said lets find our own church. We can go to a few churches, see which one feels right for us, and then get our son dedicated. I was completely shocked! This was coming from my husband who believes in God but doesn’t practice his religion. He never attended church as an adult.  He always declined my offer to go with me because I worship on Saturday. I told him “NO, I’m not going to cancel our son’s dedication! I feel like this is what God wants me to do.”  Everyday that week before the dedication my husband asked me “Are you sure? We can find another church if you just wait.” He even called me at work saying he felt like I was “just doing what I wanted to do and didn’t care what he wanted for our son.”

At this point I felt torn between obeying God’s words to me and my husband’s words to me. I wanted my husband to feel what I felt: that the dedication of our six year old son to God would become the best thing we as parents can do for our child. When I left work that day, I felt overwhelmed and drained.  I found myself fighting a battle, but I felt unequipped to fight!

On my way home my best friend Crystal called and asked me if I could take her by her church and drop her home. When we arrived at her church, Crystal’s aunt was in the parking lot with a friend of hers. We said hi and spoke for a moment before we went inside to printout some papers. On our way out, the lady with Crystal’s aunt stopped me.  She said she felt afraid to tell me when I first arrived, but she knew she couldn’t let me leave without speaking what God put on her heart to say.  she said, “Whatever you are planning to do, do it.” She didn’t know what but whatever it was God wanted me to follow through. “Don’t let anyone change your decision.” I stood there absolutely shocked! She went on to say “don’t worry about fitting in or if people who may not even know you don’t like you. Their evil spirit makes it impossible for them to like you.”

My flesh felt confused like how would this person know such a thing. Then instantly I felt overcome with love and amazement! God would use a complete stranger to get my attention. He instantly confirmed what He already put on my heart to help me from wavering from the path He designed for my son. I couldn’t help but to cry with joy. The lady gave me such a comforting hug. When I told her what I was struggling with, she was in awe! Our faith grew even stronger that day!

When I got home I spoke with my husband and told him what happened. I couldn’t perceive for sure if he completely believed me, but he didn’t question our son’s dedication anymore. That Saturday, June 18th, 2005 we woke up and went to the church as a family. We stood before God giving Him charge over our son’s life and asking for His guidance and protection each and every day.

Looking back over this experience, I realize how blessed I am. That God would get my attention in the midst of all the chaos! Letting me know that what’s on my heart came from HIM! Thank you, thank you, thank you heavenly Father for your love!

7 Key Points From the Story of the Centurion and Widow

 

Step #1: We need to take our burdens to God with humility.  There are some struggles we cannot overcome on our own no matter how hard we try.  The sooner we realize this fact, the quicker we will turn to God to help us.

Let’s look at the heart of the Centurion requesting help from Yeshua to heal his elderly servant who was dear to him, sick, near death and ready to to die–Luke 7:2.  A Roman army unit of 100 back in the time of Yeshua was led by a Roman officer known as a Centurion–“centurion” in Latin means 100. The Centurion’s officer’s humility and desperation really struck me.  When Jesus approached his house, he sent friends out to Jesus to say the following:

Luke 7:6-7 “…Lord, trouble not yourself: for I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof:  Where neither thought I myself worthy to come unto you: but say in a word, and my servant shall be healed.”

Luke 7:10 And they that were sent, returned to the house, found the servant whole that had been sick.

He was so humble he didn’t even think he was worthy enough to come to God.  Well God wants us to cry out to Him so He can help us overcome sin and death that binds us.  He wants to free us from the penalty of sin and death that we deserve and that causes us to suffer.  When we like the Centurion exhibit sincere and heartfelt humility, faith and cry out for Yeshua to help us, we like the Centurion will see miracles too!  

 

Step #2: Faith in God is essential.

The Centurion’s faith amazed Yeshua because he didn’t need to see or touch Yeshua to believe.  He knew Yeshua’s power. Do you know Yeshua’s power?  Yeshua praised and marveled at the faith of the Centurion.  He said to the people around Him in Luke 7:9 the following:

I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no not in Israel.

God can speak life back into both dying and dead individuals!  What state are you in? The three states are the following:

1)Dying

2) Dead

3) Alive in Christ by the power of God’s Holy Spirit living in you

 

Step #3) God sees our tears and loves us.

God does not want to see us weep.  He is here for us to help us overcome our struggles.  Like any parent, God wants the best for His children.  Luke 7:12-13 states,

Now when he came near to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her. 

And When the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her and said unto her, Weep not.

Then in Luke 7:14 Yeshua speaks life into her dead son.  [*A bier a movable frame on which a coffin or a corpse is placed before burial or cremation or on which it is carried to the grave.]

And he came and touched the bier*: and they that bare him stood still.  And he said, Young man, I say unto you, Arise.  And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak.  And he delivered him to his mother.

The truth is that God does not want to see us suffer.  Our bad choices caused us suffering.  He is waiting upon us to humble ourselves and cry out to Him.  He wants us to repent and say that we are sorry that we sinned against Him.  He is waiting for us to ask Him to break us free from sin and suffering and tell Him that we want to live a life free from sin with His help.  Then, He will intervene in our suffering and stop our weeping once we discover the true cost of sin. 

 

Step #4: God shows us compassion and sets us free from bondage to sin.

Yeshua saw the widow’s tears, struggles and showed compassion.  The widow represents us.  We are alone with our problem.  Only God can stop our weeping and suffering and bring life back to us.  

 

Step #5 Yeshua calls us to arise from our dead state.  

The widows son came back to life when Yeshua touched him and called him back to life.  God likewise calls us to emerge from darkness and enter back into life with Him.  We possess an opportunity to arise from our old life of death and sin and to walk in newness and righteousness.   Yeshua’s Holy Spirit gives us life and empowers us from within.  

 

Step #6: An Encounter With God. 

Yeshua heals blind eyes, deaf ears, lame legs, lepers and dead people.  He brings real life and real hope of eternal life to us.  We no longer need to walk in darkness, sin and death.  We can walk in newness of life with God.

Have You Had This Life Changing Encounter With Yeshua?

 

Step 7: God visits His People.  

We know God and God knows us.  We have a friend in God.  God’s name does not offend us; therefore, we become blessed.  We sought God out and discovered that He is with us.  When we follow the six steps to Yeshua, we discover the wonderful truth: God’s word is true and God is real.  He is who He says that He is; He can do what He says He can do.  We discover what the phrase means: the joy of the Lord. As a result, we can recognize Yeshua has stopped by to see us.  We can share this story of God’s visit with us and testify of God’s goodness.

ETERNAL LIFE PROMISED BY YAHWEH

The Promise (eternal life) before the world began came from God.

In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; (Titus 1:2)

  • MOST PEOPLE HAVE THE FALSE BELIEF THAT OUR EXISTENCE STARTED AT THE GARDEN OF EDEN.    
  • What if we actually existed before the Garden of Eden?  Remember God that cannot lie promised us eternal life before this world began.  We came from Jerusalem from above–a free place. 

“But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.” Huh?  I repeat, “But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.”  (Galatian 4:26)  

We were born and created in Jerusalem above the mother of us all.  God made this mystery available to those of us with eyes to see and ears in which to hear His truth.

 

Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:  That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:  (Ephesians 1:9-10)   

Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,   Before I formed thee in the belly  I knew thee;  (?) and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.  (Jeremiah 1:4-5)

Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.    As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.  (John 17:17-18)

 So God sent Jesus into this world to die at Calvary for the sins of the nations. Jesus sent us into this world to become reconciled to God the Father by repenting of our sins against God in a prior world.  THE HOPE OF ETERNAL LIFE IS A REALITY.  A PROMISE FROM GOD THE FATHER MADE KNOWN TO US BY HIS SON YESHUA (JESUS).  

18   As thou hast sent me into the world, ***even so*** have I also sent them into the world.      JOHN 17:23 23       I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one;  and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast lov-ed them, *as* thou hast lov-ed me.   Notice the following phrase “and hast lov-ed them, *as* thou hast lov-ed me.”   Notice God loves us as God loves Jesus “and hast lov-ed them, *as* thou hast lov-ed me.”     25 Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing.   JOHN 1:6      There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.   33       And I knew him not: but (he that sent me) to baptize with water, ***the same*** said unto me,  Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him,  the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.

Luke 24:49   And, behold, I send ***the promise of my Father*** upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power ***from on high***.
Acts 1:4   And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem,
but wait for ***the promise of the Father***, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.
Acts 2:33   Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father ***the promise of the Holy Ghost***, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.

JESUS THE SON OF GOD MADE IT VERY CLEAR TO US  IN A SIMPLY AND STRAIGHT FORWARD STATEMENT steps we need to take to be saved  READ ON:

MARK 16:15-19      And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach ***the gospel*** to every creature.

 16       He that believeth and is baptized (shall be saved;) but he that believeth not shall be damned.
16       He that believeth and is baptized (shall be saved;) but he that believeth not shall be damned.
16       He that believeth and is baptized (shall be saved;) but he that believeth not shall be damned.
 19       ¶ So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
 

JESUS LAST WORDS to his apostles MINUTES BEFORE*** JESUS RETURN*** TO THE FATHER

JOHN 6:61       When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?

 62       What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where ***he was before***?

  BASIC INFORMATION TO US FROM GOD THE FATHER THAT YOU MUST UNDERSTAND. IT IS LIKE 1+1 =2 OR A B C. THAT IS WITHOUT *THIS BASIC KNOWLEDGE* YOU WILL BE UNABLE TO UNDERSTAND THE PLAN OF GOD   

  Romans 3:23   For *all* have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

               YES THIS IS CLEARLY SAYING *ALL ONCE HAD* THE GLORY OF GOD

HEBREWS 10:32       But call to remembrance the former days, in which,* after* ye were illuminated,
                       ye endured a great fight of afflictions; 
1 Corinthians 15:44       It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. 
 There *is* a natural body, and there *is* a spiritual body.        1+1=2
 ( BIRTH AND BODY IS LIKE WET AND WATER THEY CANNOT BE SEPARATED)
JOHN 3:5  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit,(2 BIRTHS) 
he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6       That which is born of the flesh *is* flesh; and that which *is* born of the Spirit is spirit.
2 births
  • The first birth occurred when you came out of the sac of water in your mother’s womb.  You were born of water.
  • The second birth is when the flesh dies and the spirit returns to God who gave it.  You receive a spiritual body in the kingdom.  You are born of the spirit.  

These are two separate births to enter into the kingdom of God.

 7       Marvel not that I said unto thee, ***Ye must*** be born (again.) 
 8       The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, (but canst not tell whence it cometh,
         and whither it goeth:) so ***is every one**** that is born of the Spirit.
         so ***is every one**** that is born of the Spirit.
         so ***is every one**** that is born of the Spirit.
         so ***is every one**** that is born of the Spirit.(no exception)
(You can not return to the kingdom of heaven until you are born again into your spiritual body–the second birth .
This takes place the minute the flesh dies. In the flesh one can not see the spiritual birth the very same way one can not see God  or angels because the spiritual body is like the wind in that it can not be seen by flesh man. John 3:8) 
 
Jesus is the first fruit that is he is the first person  that walked this earth that returned glorified to the Father.

John 20:17       Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father:  but go to my brethren, and say unto them,                     I ascend unto my Father, ***and your Father***; and to my God, ***and your God***.

I ascend unto my Father, ***and your Father***; and to my God, ***and your God***.
I ascend unto my Father, ***and your Father***; and to my God, ***and your God***.
I ascend unto my Father, ***and your Father***; and to my God, ***and your God***.
 

Luke 20:36  Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection. 

Why can’t they die anymore?  After Christ resurrection, christians no longer need to sleep in death?  

The term  slept  is used to refer to those who died before Christ payed the ransom price at Calvary.   Jesus conquered the power of death by dying for our sins.  He freed the dead spirits (who existed in a slept state) meaning spiritually dead waiting for Christ to die on the cross.  Spirits cannot die unless God destroys them after the white throne judgement.  

John 19:30  When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

1 Corinthians 15:20     ¶ But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

 
Let’s see if the word shines a light on what happened at Jesus death; he being the firstfruit.

 

1 Peter 3:18       ¶ For Christ *also* hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God,  being put to death *in the flesh*, but quickened by the Spirit:                                          

  19       By ***which*** also he went and preached unto *the spirits* in prison;

20       Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. 

1 Corinth 15:35       ¶ But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?
 
 36       Thou fool, that which thou sowest ***is not quickened****, except it die: 
   
 37       And that which thou sowest, thou sowest *not* that body that shall be,
 38       But ***God*** giveth it a body as it hath pleased him
 
 JOHN 36-7:
6       That which is born of the flesh *is* flesh; and that which *is* born of the Spirit is spirit.
                                                         
7       Marvel not that I said unto thee, ***Ye must be born*** (again.) 
2 Corinthians 5:5       Now he that hath wrought ***us ***for the selfsame thing is God,  who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. 
 6       Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, ***whilst ***we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: 
 7       (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
 
8       We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 
 
  Now he that hath wrought (brought) us ***for the selfsame thing*** is God, 
  Now he that hath wrought us ***for the selfsame thing*** is God,
  Now he that hath wrought us ***for the selfsame thing*** is God, 
 
1 Corinthians 15:
49       And as we have borne the image of the earthy,* we* shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

 50       Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood*** cannot*** inherit the kingdom of God;
         neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
49       And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall* also* bear the image of the heavenly.

DO NOT OVER LOOK THIS WORD ***ALSO***FOR IT HAS GREAT DEPTH
IT IS SAYING THAT YOU LIKE JESUS WILL *ALSO* bear the image of the heavenly.
 
I JOHN CHAPTER 3
 1       ¶ Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. 
 2       Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be:
  but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
 
but *we know* that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
but *we know* that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 
                                    
                                
HEBREWS 2:
6       But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man,  that thou visitest him?
 7       Thou ***madest him*** a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour,  and didst set him over the works of thy hands: 
 
8       Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.
 
  But now we see not yet all things put under him.
 
 9       But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
 
17       Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto ***his brethren***
17       Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto ***his brethren***
17       Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto ***his brethren***
 
I HOPE THIS WILL MAKE YOU APPRECIATE ***WHO YOU REALLY ARE*** AND BE NO LONGER DECEIVED BY THAT GREAT DECEIVER.
 

ROMANS 8:9       ¶ For whom he did *foreknow*, he*** also*** did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son,that he might be the firstborn among ***many*** brethren.

                              

Jeremiah 1:
4     ¶ Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 5     Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.
 
Jeremiah represents all of us

Hebrews 2:17  17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. 11 or both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, 14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

Why Did God Give Me A Dream Of Heaven?

Two or three months after the death of a dear friend that pained me to my very bowels, God gave me a dream in which I found my self walking around in heaven.   This dream immediately comforted me in the midst my storm.  He allowed me to go through this crushing experience that altered my path in life.  He gave me a glimpse of where He intended to take me.

This dream appeared so vivid that I can never forget.  This is one of those rare dreams that sticks with you for a lifetime.

God knew what I needed.  The dream fulfilled those needs.   I know I am to continue to live obediently to His will.  He will guide my life into this kingdom.

I do not feel my words can adequately describe a spiritual world in my dream that physical beings can fully comprehend.  I will do my best.  For some basis of comparison, Beverely Hills or the richest place on the Earth will pale in comparison.  So Heaven juxtaposed to this Earth makes the richest place here on Earth appear like the most dangerous slum imaginable.

We left the kingdom to get lost here on Earth in a slum: the pig slop in the story of the prodigal son in the Bible.  Where we live is like living in a prison compared to Heaven.  Prisoners are always on guard protecting themselves here in our world when amongst themselves.  There is no need for this in Heaven–no one will harm you.  Evil and sin does not exist there.  Wisdom and knowledge flows throughout–you just know.  No one will break into your house–you just know.  You do not need to work and labor for food to eat and a home to live in to care for yourself like most of us here on Earth.  Whatever you think just magically happens.  Night does not exist so need to worry about stumbling in the dark or someone trying to rob you while walking alone in a strange and unknown place. The weather is perfect so no need to grab a coat or look for an air conditioner.  Love takes the place of worry and joy takes the place of pain.  We do not need to look to things to do to entertain us, the place is a wonderland full of excitement, beauty and things to explore.

Heaven reflects a true utopia that is beyond any earthly comprehension.  How is this possible?  It is just perfect–nothing decays.  Everything is full of life and energy.  A sense of love just seems to emanate throughout this place.  First imagine perfection on the earth or in heaven in which death, decay, fear, negativity, sin, iniquity and destruction does not exist. The opposite of all these things pervade the surroundings.  There is a sense of youthfulness in all living things.

Things shine with life, splendor,shimmering color and sing harmoniously their own special tunes.  So when you walk in nature, you can hear the leaves clapping, the birds singing and other unknown living thing joining the orchestra of nature to create a soft and delightful natural outside orchestra.  This  gives one a sense of exhilarating joy and love–music is in the air all around.  This magical and spiritual experience man or woman’s mind could not begin to completely comprehend.  This is Yahweh’s world that He created without sin!  A world overflowing with love and joy–the kingdom of God where sin is not allowed.  A jaw dropping wow is what I experienced innumerable times while walking in my spirit in heaven in my dream!

You literally must see and experience heaven to truly begin to recognize how awesome and loving the creator, architect, designer, mastermind and source of all that exist truly is. Earth is but a bad shadow of the real thing! Heaven essentially represents a kingdom filled with joy, peace, love, wonder, exquisite beauty and every imaginable good thing–a positive aura emanates throughout.  The art and creativity stood out.   It’s a holy, creative and powerful place of light beyond human comprehension.  I did not see a sun in the sky and night did not exist.  I saw streets of gold.  I did not see God, but what I saw in heaven words could never paint a true picture of this magical place.

Shock and awe best describes my experience in Heaven.  Wow, my jaws kept dropping lower and lower as I walked through nature and as I approached mansions jutting high into the sky!  Wow, I looked up to see a sea of glass with sea creatures swimming.   What I saw initially left me speechless and in utter awe!

If God appeared in my dream in heaven, I would predict I would drop to my knees,  bow and sing praises to His name at the sheer wonder and magic of heaven!  Amazing is an understatement!  Heaven is a place that is alive with vibrant colors, melodic and musical sounds within nature, tranquility and an almost tangible aura of love emanates throughout–fear, decay and everything negative is nonexistent.  Everything including colors appear fresh, brand new and alive.   Colors  appear  vibrantly alive and bring joy and exhilaration due to its sheer beauty and perfection!

Mansions and landscaped lawns beautifully project upwards into the sky with exquisite aesthetics.  Imagine stepping into your empty mansion for the first time  and seeing a delightful cream colored room.   You begin to think “I wish the room was yellow.”  Before you complete the thought, the entire room turns a radiant yellow.  In utter shock, your mouth drops once again in awe at the beauty and wonder of what God has in store for you.  You walk into another empty room and wish the room to be larger and immediately the room expands. You then begin to think this size is good, and the room immediately stops to the desired size.  Heaven is an unbelievably amazing place where your jaw just drops continuously and your eyes just bulge wide open whenever you turn your head to see all God’s amazing wonders.

The shock and awe affect gradually subsides a little as I became familiar with the wonders of heaven in my dream.  I saw beautiful peaceful animals  that exist in heaven, but not here on Earth.  I just remember feeling joyful, content, exhilarated, inquisitive and loved.  If we intend to make it into the heavenly kingdom to see the sea of glass shooting upwards into the sky with all the sea creatures living within it, we must stay in relationship with God.

We must seek first this kingdom of God.  Peter says in I Peter 1:14-16 “As obedient children, let yourselves be pulled into a way of life shaped by God’s life, a life energetic and blazing with holinessGod said, “I am holy; you be holy.” [MSG]  We must shun sin like God hates sin.  We must change our lifestyles and live for God by asking God to change us so that we develop the Character of Yeshua (Jesus).  We must stop making excuses to allow sin to remain in our lives.  If we don’t listen now, we might discover when we get to heaven that God never knew us though we cast out demons in His name.

Furthermore, I could not make the changes in my life to permanently break the shackles of sin Satan used to control me.  I knew God would help me overcome sin, but I had to repent and turn away completely from my old sinful way of living.  God stepped in when I reached out to Him and begged Him to remove sin out of my life.  What He did for me, He will and wants to do for you.   I turned to the Creator who made and continues to help me make the necessary changes to live a life free from sin.

Let’s shift allegiance from Satan back to God by asking God to help break the chain of sin that hinders your growth with God.  I gave God complete control of my life and authority to remove this addiction to sin.  He crushed sin out of my heart like some people crush a roach.  He gave me a new heart with His commandments written on them.   I no longer serve sin with a stony heart.  I now live through Christ living in me.  God granted my request to help me eliminate sin out of my life.  I stand by my testimony that God is a faithful and loving God!   I am not the same person following this encounter with God.

In seeing heaven in a dream, I know what a gift God has in store for us.  A life of sin bound to Satan cannot compare to what God has to offer us who choose a sin free lifestyle.  I understand Paul’s word when he says the following: 1 Corinthians 2: 9 reminds us of the following: But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ears heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
