Awake! – Part 21/b – Timing is Everything

July 21, 2017 at 1:36 am (WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , , )

How do you think you did on the test? Did you hear from Adonai? Was His voice painting the final analysis? If so, the test was passed. 

We live in a world right now, where there’s the “Truthers”, “fake news”, conspiracy theorist, real reporters, paid actors, and the list goes on. Amy Grant once wrote a song; “Ya gotta know, who to, and not to, listen to”. I remember it was one of my faves. I was in 7th grade when it came out. 

It’s not so much why God placed inside me this calling card, as how and when. From the time as far back as I can remember, He has sent one thing after another to confirm He speaks directly to His children! The whole Word of God confirms it, but no book does quite like John. As you read, underline every time God spoke/speaks and His initiation to communicate. Your Bible will quickly be full of underlining! Then count how many times the phrase “I speak only what God/My Father tells me to say – do only what He tells me to do” 

I was raised in the non denominational Christian church. With few exceptions, every single one of them taught that God doesn’t speak directly to His People! Years later I understood it is pure deceitful fear that has been behind this in the church. What did the enemy say in the garden?

“Did God really say….?” 

That same enemy is still planting that same seed in the garden of God’s Vineyard. Hence the drowsiness encompassing His sheep. For today, this time, the buck must absolutely stop at what He says for our bearings to be correct where He has us, how and when. There are two ways we can stand firm in this:

  1. His Word, the Bible
  2. His Voice

That’s it. There is too much deception, too many people thinking they have the answers, too many people who think they can not be deceived, too many people afraid to hear from the Truth! (Remember…He’s a person, God – Yeshua/Jesus). 

Here are two quotes from God, from the book of Jeremiah. The entire 51st chapter is crucial to our lives today. 

Jeremiah 51:39; 57

When they are hot with desire, I will prepare them a drink, I will make them so drunk they will have convulsions, sleep forever and NEVER wake up, says Adonai. 

I will intoxicated her leaders and sages, her governors, deputies and warriors. They will sleep forever and NEVER wake up. Says the King, whose Name is Adonai-Tzva’ot. (Lord of Angel Armies)  

Let’s face it, when God spoke, quite often, it was plain just hard to hear. Not hard as in too low in frequency, but hard as in difficult to accept. I believe the disciples themselves can be quoted as saying that very thing about Yeshua’s teaching. Yet, let those verses sink in, time is going to run out, come to an end. Time ran out for Pharaoh, Goliath, Samson, Jericho, Sodom and Gomorrah, Haman, Pilate and the “church” in Yeshua’s time. The list goes on. Those in Israel at the time of Jeremiah 52, indeed were put to sleep and Never Woke up. It’s so important to never think we have some “spiritual nodoze” that makes us immune to falling asleep – aka: being deceived. Read in the Book of John how Yeshua emphasises hearing Him, listening to Him and staying in union with Him. And not being decieved! 

Now is not the time to be afraid of people’s reactions to us, either quoting the Word of God or telling them what He says to tell them! 

And now is definitively not the time to be afraid to hear Him! For we can “take this to the bank”, if we do not, right now, hear Him over every other voice shouting at us from every direction, we will fall asleep and waking up will not be a pleasant experience. 

How are the many ways the enemy is saying “Did God really…?” to you right now? Let me rephrase his wording as can disguise the same phrase. 

Why am I here? What am I doing? When will I be given a mission or ministry? Where do I matter?

The key to knowing why these questions are from the pit of hell instead of “nice soul searching Christian thinking” is because the emphasis is on the one letter word in each question. I. Nothing is accidental, God is behind everything about our lives. Where we are, how we are effecting others, and He may not choose to show us exactly how impactful He is in us, right now. 

Are you bearing fruit to bring Him glory? Or hiding behind leaves that reveal no fruit can be found? Hiding is about us, bearing fruit will always hallmark that we are about Him! I have yet to meet anyone truly doing the work of the Kingdom that can see exactly how and when God is using them at all times. Or even most the time. People who brag about how God is using them are not liars, but I guarantee they are blind in some very important spots. 

When King David thought he had it all together, was settling down into the kingdom God had given him. He took a walk on a roof and became a murderer and adulterer in the space of about 5 seconds. Remember, it starts in the heart, the mind, where only God can interrupt one efficiently and effectively. 

Remember, Peter was warned exactly how he’d deny Yeshua, and he still did it. It wasn’t the power of suggestion, it was prophesy. Yeshua’s timing in exactly when and how He warned Peter and then made the cock crow that third time was to His glory not Peter’s. It did indeed produce fruit for the Kingdom of God. Yet Peter will likely tell you he had not a clue how. David too. Every one of us gets stuck on ourselves at least a dozen times a day. It’s hard not to trip over something that stays with you everywhere you go. 

Remember, it’s not why, God parted the Red Sea, it’s how and when. Timing! It’s not why, Yeshua walked on water, healed the sick, lame and blind, raised the dead and died and rose again, it’s how and when! The why is obvious, God wanted to do it, it got done. God wants the evil to end, but not the lives of His created precious children. The end will get done, and every chance will be exhausted to bring His children into His Kingdom. Both are happening, right now, at the same time! 

Are you awake? Can you hear Him telling you? Remember Yeshua’s Words, let them ring in your ears…

He who has ears, let him hear…”  

If the only way to hear God is in reading His Word, He would have said “He who has eyes, let them read.” God would not have sent prophets or Yeshua to speak. The Torah, would have been enough, Yeshua would not have been needed. I could go on and on…but I pray you get the “picture”. The Word of God is anointed, alive and active. Just like it says. Yet relationship with God, is personal, talking, walking, living, responding, and knowing.   

If anything less than relationship was what God is after, He would have gave us a book, like a dead school book of rules and called it a day. Pun intended. 

If God’s timing is everything, and He didn’t say; “Lisa go to your neighbor and invite her to dinner.”  in the Bible, how then could I obey? I can verify in the Word, that the Voice I heard was God’s, but the Bible still won’t personally reach down on my block with the specific people He placed in my path and tell me what to do and say that applies to their life for His glory. It will confirm and reinforce the Living God whose Voice goes out from everlasting to everlasting; written as His Voice directed it to be written. I’m in no way understating the validity and power of the Word of God. No, indeed, that very Word is the same person as the Truth, Yeshua the Messiah; and He said…

John 10:3-4

This is the one the Gatekeeper admits, and the Sheep hear His voice. He calls His own sheep, each one by name, and leads them out. After taking out all that are His own, He goes on ahead of them, and the Sheep follow Him because they recognize His voice.   

John 10:16

Also I have other sheep which are not from this pen; I need to bring them, and they will hear My Voice; and there will be one flock, One Shepherd.  

John 10:27

My sheep hear My Voice, I recognize them, they follow Me…  

✡ May the grace and peace that comes from hearing and knowing Yeshua the Messiah be with you. Now and forever more. ✡

Awake! – Part 21-a – Awake Test 

July 19, 2017 at 3:47 am (WSGD Newes) (, )

Testing, testing…

Here’s a video, watch and listen. Not just to the words coming out of the speaker on the video, but hear the voice of the Promised Spirit that gives discernment and wisdom! Part 21 ~B, will cover the unpealing of the onion. In this video is truth and falsehood; definitive signs of God using imperfect people, in imperfect times to do His perfect will. Note what you get side tracked with, what irritates you, what made you curious and what sinks in deep and quick as true. Hold each note up to Yeshua – the Way, The Truth, and the Life. He said, “My sheep know My Voice…” He will speak directly into your thoughts of this video. He will tell you what you need to note, what to disregard and what to share. 

So let’s take an awake test. Let us see what we learn and still have yet to. After all, each moment we are alive, no matter where we are or what we’re doing the line of communication between ourselves and Adonai is meant to be a central line, the thing we cling to for every thought and it’s shaping of our souls. The is the state of fully aware, ready, prepared and watching. 

✡ May the grace and peace of Yeshua the Messiah be with you. ✡

Awake! – Part 20 – The Real Question…

July 9, 2017 at 3:58 am (WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , )

Mark 14:38 – Yeshua (Jesus) speaking…

Stay awake, and pray that you will not be put to the test – the spirit indeed is eager, but human nature is weak.   

Knowing on the horizon the various forms the enemy could be setting us up to be deceived – there’s a critical question…

“What would it take to fool me?” 

The question is not whether or not we can be fooled. The answer is a resounding yes. Remember Peter’s devotion, insight and dedication to Yeshua? Yet even he denied his Lord. The example was set for us to take heed; no one is beyond being duped or trying to find a way to believe but appear as though we don’t. Thats what Peter was doing. He wanted to know what was happening to his Lord, his heart doubted, but he didn’t want to. It was just that he was having a hard time understanding that God could be arrested, that man could kill Him! It wasn’t in Peter’s understanding yet, the whole picture was still being revealed. We are all always in this exact same place. Vulnerable to something based on what we think we know, but God intends to teach us more. 

So given the times we’re in; what would it take to shake your faith? What would it take to bend you towards doubt? What would it look like to wonder if you’d been wrong all this time? Upon thinking of the answer, don’t fear! Ask God to enter into the questioning and solidify your trust, and be stronger in you than any fear, any doubt and prepare your heart for droopy eyes. 

Mark 13:22 – Yeshua speaking…

There will appear false Messiah’s and false prophets performing signs and wonders for the purpose, if possible, of misleading the chosen.   

Mark 13:35-37

So stay alert! For you don’t know when the owner of the house will come, whether it will be evening, midnight, cockcrow or morning – you don’t want Him to come suddenly and find you sleeping! And what I say to you, I say to everyone: stay alert!”   

To stay alert, I picture someone in the woods on a watch for predators. One must know what to watch for as an enemy to stay alert. So what form do you need to watch for? If we can’t think of anything (like Peter telling Yeshua nothing would make him betray Him), ask God to show you where you may be wrong – now, before it’s too late. 

My devotion to Adonai, seems to me, as unshakable as the heavens! Yet there is a reason God will shake even those in the last days, nothing will be unaffected, unshakeable – soon. Remember in every warning Yeshua gave it has bells attached. Things will be shakey, doubts will emerge from hidden places, eyes will blink to try to understand what they see, ears will ring at the sound of deception. There will be only One we can count on, not family or friends – only Yeshua. Let us let Him show us our hypocrisy, our doubts, our proud thinking, our misconceptions, our assumptions – now with eyes wide open. Remember He took the three solid sheep of His flock to the Garden of Gethsemane. Peter, James and John. Three times they were found sleeping when He asked them to remain, stay awake and pray (Mark 14:33). Three times He found them so sleepy they could not even account for why. (Mark 14:40) It’s not a coincidence that the number three pops up here in sleepiness just like the number of times Peter denies the Lord. 

I leave off with this video link to pull together the emphasis.

✡ May the grace and peace of Yeshua the Messiah be found in full measure in our hearts, minds, and souls. May the assurance of His Salvation sing over us. May He steady our feet with His unshakable Love and lead us in the Way everlasting ✡

Awake! ~ Part 19 ~ 7/4/2017 – Chaos, Confusion, or Clarity?

July 4, 2017 at 12:53 am (WSGD Newes) (, , , , , )

I will qualify at the onset of this blog that these are my thoughts. I stand only on the Word of God as inspired and Holy writ. I believe I am being asked to share these thoughts, but not to say “thus says Adonai.” 

It’s July 4th, 2017. The long celebrated “Independence Day” for those who live in the United States of America. I won’t wax long about its history or its present condition. I’m grateful for all God has done in this country that has been of His grace, justice and freedom. That this vehicle now limps onto the road of Life is truth, the brokenness of how man’s idea of government, freedom, liberty tends to repeat since the days 1 Samuel (chapter 8) are not coincidental. Knowing the biblical history of how man-invented rulership came to be –  is key to coming to the understanding of why things are the way they are. I stopped saying I’m “proud” to be an American a long time ago, when I found out what “Americans” did to the native Americans, in other words all the immigrants, did to the people who were here first. Our legacy in this vein has now spread throughout the world and it’s disgraceful. To be fair the Americans I’ve associated with in this tiny 46 years of life, would never have went along with these plans, and hence neither myself, my family, nor those I know would likely be calling themselves Americans today. We wouldn’t have been welcome. There are levels of accountability, but if we do not acknowledge our atrocities as a country then some accountability will befall each American who found themselves so proud. To be grateful for the blessings God gives one no matter where they live is good. To attach a sense of self to that country, idolatry is the word the Word uses. Being awake finds this balance point precarious in this day and age.

 The rabbit hole of “American freedom” falls deep into a level of slavery that truly can only come from a deceiver; as most don’t know they are slaves at all and are ready to fight to the death to stay enslaved. Just a few points to show what I mean. 

  • America’s history says we left England because of unfair taxation and religious rigidity. Yet, for more than 80 years now we have all paid more taxes than any other people ever has and the “religious freedom” has enslaved more and more hearts over time here than its freed. Ironically, the rest of the world has found freedom from religion, though most of these pay for it, usually with their lives. (Well, the temporary shells of them here this side of the fall)
  • We decided to come here to set up “our” version of righteous government and as with every single one of man’s attempt to do it better, it gets worse every time. History repeats itself, and it’s lesson? Man refuses to learn. 

    The only way to have “went back” or returned to the Lord would have been for people to repent and turn to God and say “no more Kings and governments of man, God we refuse to follow any but You!” As well intentioned and righteous the words that frame our Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights,  and all those original American documents may have been or sounded, it still didn’t say to the people exactly what was needed. Instead we used God to make it seem like we wanted to serve Him. But if you read these documents and compare them with Yeshua’s (Jesus’) words in Matthew 5, 6, and 7 we find that the only thing we got partially correct was that all men are created equal under God. I say partially because words didn’t qualify in the hearts of all men in America at that time, nor has it since. 

    I’m not sure if anyone has seen Barack Obama’s 2006 speech he gave in some church out east. While he undoubtedly mocked God, Yeshua and His Word. He actually made true statements. The right to “bear arms” wouldn’t be in a Christ-followers national law. Nor would the right to free speech. Grant it, the intention was to give people liberty to talk about the Word of God, read it themselves and speak to others about it without retribution. Yet the phraseology didn’t get that specific, it was generalized and now we have the right to say anything except God’s Word as the final stopping point. Funny how that happened. Most people think God was ridiculously detailed in Leviticus, I begin to understand every day why. There was no margin for general error. Only specific ones. God is smarter, and knows His creatures well. Barack made the statement that we wouldn’t be able to have a national defence fund based on Yeshua’s Words in Matthew. He spoke truth, what He failed to see or say was that if all people lived according to Yeshua’s Words found there; there would be no need of one! Let’s peek again back into history for a second for proof. Jericho was defeated, not by arms but obeying God, marching, praising, trumped blowing and shouts of praise to God. Hmmmm…but here’s the real kicker! Evil itself was overcome, conquered by the death of Yeshua on a cross, not a hand raised in retaliation, not a human army could have helped, no weapon known on earth then or now had a thing to contribute. Yeshua didn’t exercise His right to free speech then and if there was ever a human who has/had THE RIGHT to say anything; it was Him! That war was won, Yeshua did exactly what He instructs us to do. So ultimately Barack Obama’s statement should send whoever in the nation calls themselves followers of Christ back to those Words in Matthew and change their own thinking. 

    I have been watching what are called Truthers on the net. With the exception of a few, just like Yeshua said again, even these don’t really preach and practice and more importantly encourage others to do the same as Yeshua said in those chapters in Matthew. While I don’t doubt they believe and love the Lord, they still fall back into self preservation and still will fall on the sword of American rights. It’s sad. 

    I don’t love this country, I love this world God has given us to rule and reign over. I do not side with Americans I side with the Lord God-Father, Son-Yeshua the Messiah, and Spirit of the Living God for all people of the world, period. I will not fight verbally or physically for any of the so called rights Americans think free them. I will, however, shout until I’ve no voice left the honor, glory and power of Yeshua, His Ways, His Truth, and His Life. The weapons I have will come from Him, and follow His instruction every time. They will take no human life (we have hunted, not for sport (animals not humans – sadly these days that must be qualified) but food and will do so again if necessary). The only thing to defend in the mantra even Christians are saying they will shoot someone over is this fallen life, these fallen things, and they are not more valuable in God’s eyes than the blood that cries out from the earth every time a human being is killed. As for free speech, which many will argue I’m enjoying by writing this right now, I will gladly shut my mouth and trust Yeshua, my Defender and Advocate to say any words needed without any help from me if they cause one person to stumble in following Him and Him alone. 

    I’m not willing to compromise the actual living of the Words of God in my own life. How that effects others is for God to maneuver, I will never and have never had an ounce of control over that. No one does/has. That may cause jealousy, envy, slander, misunderstanding, to be stirred in another. It won’t change my mind. It may cause praise, encouragement and strengthen another. Yet that’s not the reason why I stand firm, though it’s certainly a joy to know. The only “well done” I care for is Yeshua’s. People are fickle and unreliable, it’s a wasted life that hinges on the opinion of human kind, including ones own! 

    Our true cause for Celebration will come on mankind’s Dependence on God Day. It has been and always will be our independence that has caused the woes of this life. If each lives individually responsible to Dependence on Yeshua, no declarations on our part will ever be needed, defended or broken. 

    I wonder if anyone realizes what Yeshua was really doing during His years of healing, casting out demons, teaching, calming seas, and water-walking?

    He was fighting the war, declaring His victory and announcing His dominion! Turning chaos (water in Hebrew represents chaos, and healing), and confusion into clarity. Setting captives free, cutting the bonds of sin, and announcing the Good News of it to all who would hear! 

    Do you hear Him? Can you see our Savior Yeshua walking on that water, saying “I made this, I own this, it’s Mine, I’m threading under My feet (chaos) that which would seek to devour Me and My Father’s House (us)! See, I’ll take a walk on the impossible! I Am – is here!”  

    Now that is what I will Celebrate today! Everyday! 🎆

    The Joy of Study!

    June 26, 2017 at 12:10 am (Thoughts to Ponder, WSGD Newes) (, )

    I’m wondering who would like to join me in a study?

    I’ve chosen the above verse. The focus in the verse is the word ~ cloud ~. I’ve done some work, just basic, to share here. My hope is to get feedback from others about what Adonai shows you in the study. I’ve included the Hebrew and Greek word and scripture references that span from Genesis to Revelation. 

    I look forward to hearing from anyone who might share their results and joy from the study. May the Spirit of the Living God lead and guide us, into all truth and full of joy and new insights as we seek after Him in the clouds!
