Psalms 95:7
For He is our God, and we are the sheep in His pasture, the sheep in His care. If only today you would listen to His voice:

Matthew 10:7-10 ~ Yeshua (Jesus) speaking
As you go, proclaim, ‘The Kingdom of Heaven is near, heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those afflicted with tzara’at (leprosy), expel demons. You have received without paying, so give without asking payment. Don’t take money in your belts, no gold, no silver, no copper, and for the trip don’t take a pack, an extra shirt or a walking stick – a worker should be given what he needs.

Mark 9:7
Then a cloud enveloped them; and a voice came out of the cloud, “This is My Son, whom I love, Listen to Him!

John 10:27 ~ Yeshua speaking
My sheep listen to My voice, I recognize them, they follow Me.   

John 12:26
If someone is serving Me, let him follow Me; wherever I am, My servant will be there too. My Father will honor anyone who serves Me.

If I could put to simple words, what I believe my “call” is and thereby what this Blogs “theme” would be it would be:

“The key to walking with God is believing He exist, and that we exist to know Him. We know Him by His voice, what He says directly to us. He speaks through His Word, about who He is, what He’s like, about His, desires, loves, and what He has made. In the “Old” Testament He spoke both directly to people and through prophets and priests chosen specifically to teach the masses. In the “New” Testament He sent His Son, thereby fulfilling scripture (what He said) “They will all be taught by Adonai (the Lord). He, Himself. ( John 6:45; Is. 54:13; Heb. 8:11; Jer. 31:31-34) Changing our perspective on sin. Not sin, itself, for sin was/is always that we did/do not listen and obey HIM! So Yeshua (Jesus), Salvation – died for all the deeds of sin, offering up Himself and becoming the NEW Way to the Father. Not that its “new” in that there are those from before Yeshua’s birth that are with the Father. But, because of Yeshua’s work as a human, we have a God who came down personally and spoke in a way we understand in a “new” way so as to hear and upon trusting in His visible work, we can now hear the Father directly in our hearts each and everyday, in all things, so as to relate to Him. Out of this listening, relating, communing, and obeying we know Him! Hence we serve Him out of passion and love built up in our communication with Him because we trust in Yeshua, fall back with all we are in His work, and obey as He sends us out everyday.”

My passion is “bent” towards the emphasis on His Voice! Sharing what it sounds like in me, what He taught in His previous “speakings” (the Word), and how accessible His voice is now because of our wonderful Savior Yeshua! To ANY who will listen, both the lost and the saved, since He is the only One who really knows the difference! The burden He has placed in my heart is how those He loves have been so deceived as to believe that God, Himself, does not speak to His children directly anymore! That His “story” and interaction with real spoken words has ended in Revelation. This simply is not true, and would contradict everything from Genesis to Revelations God has said!

The scripture in Revelations that gets tortured into oblivion is found in chapter 22, verse 18-19.

I (Yeshua) warn everyone hearing the words of the prophecy in this book that if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues written in this book. And if anyone takes anything away from the words in this book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the Tree of Life and the holy city, as described in this book.

Herein, lies the rub. The “book” being referred to; which one? Most say the Bible as a whole. But how can this be?? Read again the very specific words He used: “words of the prophecy” and “words in the book of this prophecy“. The key word here is prophecy!
Was creation itself prophesied? Adam, Eve? No. The Bible consist of teachings, stories of people who followed God, stories of people who did not, some prophesied about, some not! Not every word in the Bible is prophesy! I suggest to you that the book He is referring to is Revelations. Look! Look how it has been added to and taken away from so far!! People have taken away the word prophecy and added every book of the Bible with those two scriptures alone!! Further proof is found in the language surrounding these words; plagues written in this book and Tree of Life and holy city as described in this book.
The next argument is that the plagues, Tree of Life, and holy city are prophesied about in several other books in the Bible. Yes, they are. But there again, its key word is prophetic, prophecy. Seems Yeshua was very concerned with how we read prophesies and interpret them. Because He knew who many would come along and do the adding and subtracting! In other words, don’t mess around in this department! If you don’t understand it, don’t try to add to your own understanding! Wait until He, Himself teaches you from His! Revelations is the most controversial book in the Bible, by both “believers” and “non-believers”! Yet, since the Bible as a whole is not just prophecy we know that this interpretation can not be true! God, Himself has been adding and adding and adding to Genesis has He not? Has He not done this through His people? And if His plan stretches to eternity, how can we possibly think He has ceased from 70 AD to add by speaking to His chosen? This simply would not make sense! Paul, Peter, Titus, Timothy their books would then be rendered as cursed and pointless since some of their writings were written AFTER Revelations! The Bible is not written chronologically! How do we know this? Because the “End” is written about but no one has seen it yet but God!!! Is He now, silent? Don’t believe it for a second!!!

I will leave off there with that thought and get to my main point. (Sorry, my passion here is popping out 🙂 ).

Serving with our gifts is speaking, writing, teaching and sharing all we are learning about God, and experiencing as a result of that with ANYONE who will listen! Without asking for anything in return, except God’s approval. There are hundred’s of thousand’s of blogs, musicians, artist, and so on doing these very things on the internet! Brother’s and Sister’s SUPPORT them! Share their post! Like, rate, email and reblog them! Its FREE! No charge! Comment and share with them your own thoughts and encouragements! Never in the history of the world has Jesus, Yeshua, God the Father been so PUBLISHED! First by the Bible, the BEST SELLING BOOK ever and still going strong, and now through His children here, like me, blogging!
Sure there are those who are misleading, untaught, and flat out twisting God, Yeshua and His Word, but these are easy to know when you are…here’s the word again…listening to Him!

One of the “signs” of His “ownership” is that we pour out what He has given and have no thought to how it gets “recognized”. The Lord is our Provider, and He will use all to bring glory to His name! Even our mistakes! Do we trust that? For myself, resoundingly YES! I don’t need to “make sure” everyone who speaks His name is His! He does that! If I have found anything lovely, pure, of good repute, building up in Him, I share it! Knowing that I, myself, have so much to learn, still see only small glimpses of truth, and can not be perfect, but my heart….oh how my heart does know and love Elohim, God, Yeshua, Jesus, the Spirit my Counselor! My blog may have errors, in grammar, in total perspective, in tone, in many things, but the error IS NOT found in my heart towards my God! Neither will everyone else “get it all right”; but our spirits can be listening to another’s and see that they are marked by His Spirit! This is what the body of Yeshua the Messiah is all about.
We heal the sick, not only of body, but the most important part, the heart/soul, when we share about our Hope – Yeshua! “Un-crippling” the lame by encouraging someone else’s walk with Him! He is the cure for the most devastating leprosy ever…deadening of the heart! The payment has been made for this!! Yeshua! Jesus! We have no need for recognition beyond Him! The best gift we ever give is sharing how He has been received by us as our gift! Let us continue to share! Continue to Walk! Continue to give FREE of charge in the Spirit and Character of the One from Whom we have received – Yeshua the Messiah! May He get the glory now and forevermore!

Revelations 21:6-7
And He said to me, “It is done! I am the ‘A’ and the ‘Z’, the Beginning and the End. To anyone who is thirsty I Myself will give free of charge from the Fountain of Life. He who wins the victory will receive these things, and I will be their God, and He will be My son.

Revelations 22:17
The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come!’ Let anyone who hears say, ‘Come!’ And let anyone who is thirsty come – let anyone who wishes, take the water of life free of charge.”

Isaiah 55:1-3
“All you who are thirsty, come to the water! You without money, come, buy, and eat! Yes, come! Buy wine and milk without money – it’s free!
Why spend money for what isn’t food, your wages for what doesn’t satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and you will eat well, you will enjoy the fat off the land.
Open your ears and come to Me; listen well, and you will live – I will make an everlasting covenant with you, the grace I assured David.

1 Corinthians 4:7
After all, what makes you so special? What do you have that you didn’t receive as a gift? And in fact it was a gift, why do you boast as if it weren’t?

Hebrews 3:7
“Today, if you hear God’s voice, don’t harden your hearts, as you did in the Bitter Quarrel,” (where we quarreled bitterly in the wilderness with Moses)

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤

Satan woudl have us think that anything short of some spectacular ministry falls short of serving the Lord. That’s not so. Every Christian can serve the Lrod in great ways by simply doing as you said in the above quote. Very well done. May the Lord continue to bless your ministry. It is a blessing to me.

      Amen Brother! Always has satan’s hope been in tricking our perspective of what God would call blessings, obedience, service, hope and so on. Even with Jesus he called up illusions and question the voice of the God and Father who made all. He (satan) will do no less with us! I have found the only reward worth having from listening, focusing, and following God, has been the keeping of His promise to draw near, lead in great detail, and be present to me. Its a miracle and wonder and I will not be moved!! Your words are a blessing and your call and blog has been a source of great up-building and encouragement to me as well! Jude vs 24
      Now, to the One who can keep you (us) from falling and set you (us) without defect and full of joy in the presence of His glory – to God alone, our Deliverer, through Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord – be glory, majesty, power and authority before all time, now and forever.
