Awake! – Part 10 – Counter the Culture

April 27, 2017 at 12:42 am (WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , )

1 Peter 3:13-17

For who will hurt you if you become zealots for what is good? But even if you do suffer for being righteous, you are blessed! Moreover, don’t fear what they fear or be disturbed, but treat the Messiah as Holy, as Lord in your hearts; while remaining always ready to give a reasoned answer to anyone who asks you to explain THE HOPE you have in you – yet with humility and fear, keeping your conscience clear, so that when you are spoken against, those who abuse the good behavior flowing from your union with the Messiah may be put to shame. For if God has in fact willed that you should suffer, it is better that you suffer for doing what is good than for doing what is evil.   

(Note: it doesn’t say “if” but when! And also that it’s not just any answer, but reasoned meaning we have taken the time to study, research, and have reasoned it out.) 

Being awake is like having your eyes opened to seeing things for the first time, in perpetuality. Yes, to the delight of things delightful and joyful; horror that brings recoil to the spirit, humility that brings one to their knees, mindfulness that brings real discerning thinking, justice that calls forth a voice to raise in the Name of Him who is Just, sorrow of real loss and bereavement, frankness that comes from calling right – right and wrong – wrong, excitement over a newly discovered things, love realized after trial and error, and so on and so forth. Living fully alive as God intended is a full investment. Half asleep is aiming at dead. Yet one must know that anyone half asleep has lost hope. Or rather, the thief of hope, has succeeded in suggesting that God didn’t really say to give you a future and a hope”. It’s at this point we must have the answer for the hope within us, the hope that God holds out to all! 

So…how do we achieve this?

First we must counter the cultural influences of the times we live in! God always gives us hope that applies to right where we are, and where we are headed. It’s not old, worn out, or inapplicable. The things that gave hope 20 years ago may indeed still apply, but they have grown at the very least! The hope God gives keeps multiplying, growing, becoming more applicable with time – not less!

Answering serious questions from our hope in Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah is critical! Such as:

♡ How has God given freedom and hope to being a woman? Unashamed and without need to change what He made? How do I stand on this hope, how does this make one free?! 

♡ How has God given freedom and hope to being a man? Again, unashamed and without need to change what He designed? How do I stand on this hope – how does this make one free?! 

♡ How do children give us freedom and hope? How does taking full responsibility for them bring joy? What did King David know that made him say, “happy is the man whose quiver is full of them?”  What is God’s delight in them? 

♡ How is freedom and hope found in following Yeshua by eliminating all affiliations with political, social and even denominational sects?

♡ Where is the hope of glory and freedom in giving, especially to the poor, orphan, prisoner  and widow? What is the “poor”? Why did God hone in on these groups of people so ardently? 

♡ Why and how, is there freedom and hope, to pay bills first and at the expense of wants? What is the joy of being debt-free? What is personal responsibility? Why does it “pay more” to not feel entitled? 

♡ Where is the freedom and hope in living in truth – albeit uncomfortable and hard – than a lazy lie?

The list of questions goes on and on for the times we live in. Topics on:

  • Transhumanism
  • Geoengineering
  • Health
  • Technology
  • War
  • Terrorism
  • Rights
  • Spiritual warfare in our day.
  • Occults and all other practices that are contrary to God’s Word. 
  • True History
  • Truth behind current events
  • Understanding government 
  • True Biblical history – origins of creation, this topic will shape everything! 
  • How to know if you’re hearing from God
  • How to be full of confidence but still need help
  • How to ask questions without letting the enemy trick you into feeling stupid or less than. How is this a sign of being grown up/mature? 
  • How to question/test everything without getting lost in seeking the answers
  • What is freedom and hope in pure sexuality? Why do we become corrupt in anything less? What is God’s design in it?
  • How do we call out false teachers without condemnation? How do we teach discernment?
  • What is prophesy? Why is it freedom and hope to go towards it. How is the enemy robbing Adonai’s body by making it fearful or taboo?

    With God and His Word the foundation of these answers are the building blocks of that hope that is within us; that will not only give answer to those by watching how we live, but be a ready and confident answer when the time comes to speak. 

    Jeremiah 29:11

    “For I know the plans I have in mind for you,” says Adonai, “plans for well-being, not for bad things; so that you can have hope and a future.”   

    Isaiah 40:26-31

    Turn your eyes to the heavens! See Who created these things! He brings out the army of them in sequence, summoning each by name. Through His great Might and Massive Strength, not one of them is missing. (Speaking of the creation and stars) Why do you complain, Jacob; why do you say, Israel, “My way is hidden from Adonai, my rights are ignored by my God”? Haven’t you known, haven’t you heard that the everlasting God, Adonai, the Creator of the ends of the earth, does not grow tired or weary? His understanding cannot be fathomed. He invigorates the exhausted, He gives strength to the powerless. Young men may grow tired and weary, even the fittest may stumble and fall; but those who hope in Adonai will renew their strength, they will soar aloft as with eagles wings; when they are running they won’t grow weary, when they are walking they won’t get tired.  

    Proverbs 10:28

    What the righteous hope for will end in joy; what the wicked expect will come to nothing.  

    Proverbs 24:14

    Know that wisdom is similarly sweet to your soul; if you find it, then you will have a future, what you hope for will not be cut off.    

    Romans 8:22-25

    We know that until now,the whole creation has been groaning as with the pains of childbirth; and not only it, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we continue waiting eagerly to be made sons – that is, to have our whole bodies redeemed and set free. It is in this hope that we are saved. But if we see what we hope for, it isn’t hope – after all, who hopes for what he already sees? But if we continue hoping for something we don’t see, then we wait eagerly for it, with perseverance.   

    Here is why we must know what hope is! And here below is why History, it’s accuracy in solidifying our hope, is so important. 

    Hebrews 6:13-20

    For when God made His Promise to Abraham, He swore an oath to do what He promised; and since there was noone greater than Himself for Him to swear by, He swore by Himself and said, “I will certainly bless you, and I will certainly give you many descendants”; and so, after waiting patiently, Abraham saw the promise fulfilled. Now people swear oaths by someone greater than themselves, and confirmation by an oath puts an end to all dispute. Therefore, when God wanted to demonstrate still more convincingly the unchangeable character of His intentions to those who were to receive what He had promised, He added an oath to the promise; so that through two unchangeable things, in neither of which God could lie, we, who have fled to take hold of the hope set before us, would be strongly encouraged. We have this hope as a sure and safe anchor for ourselves, a hope that goes right on through to what is inside the Holy of Holies, where a Forerunner has entered on our behalf, namely, Yeshua, Who has become a Cohen Gadol (High Priest) forever, to be compared to Melchizedek.  

    This takes us back to a scripture in part 1.

    1 Thessalonians 5:8

    But since we belong to The Day, let us stay sober, putting on trust and love as a breastplate and the hope of being delivered as a helmet.   

    There was a saying back in WWII, 

    Don’t you know, there’s a war going on?” 

    This question was met usually by a question that complained of lacking something. It applies today. See how hope becomes a very important part of the battle to stay awake?! Helmets are for the head, the mind, we must have our minds made up about what our hope is! What is our hope no matter the subject? Or better yet, WHO? 

    Titus 1:1-3

    From Paul, God’s slave and emissary of Yeshua the Messiah, sent to promote among God’s chosen people the trust and knowledge of Truth which leads to godliness, and which are based on the certain hope of eternal Life. God, who does not lie, promised that Life before the beginning of time but made public this Word of His in its own season through a proclamation with which I have been entrusted by order of God, our Deliverer.  

    1 Peter 1:13

    Therefore, get your minds ready for work, keep yourselves under control, and fix your hopes fully on the gift you will receive when Yeshua the Messiah is revealed.   

    We can not shy away from answers to questions that will help build up hope in the freedom promised by Yeshua; either in our own minds or in those asleep around us. We are not at war with flesh and blood, but the powers of this world seeking with an unyielding passion to subvert the truth in all things. Thereby, attempting to weaken human kind into giving their authority (we learned last lesson), Yeshua Himself gave us over the enemy! It’s a strong Authority given us, by THE AUTHORITY Himself! This is why I zoomed in on the phrases of how we must keep ourselves awake, “don’t let yourselves be deceived”, it’s our great honor to have been given access to the Truth about everything relevant to us by God Himself. This is why we will, one Day, be without excuse and answer to our eternal dispair or eternal reward, the reason for our hope and whether or not it was within us (part of us, central to us) or not.  

    The questions will be:

    • Who did you say that I Am? With your life, with your mouth, with your money, with your body, with your relationships, with your heart, with your thoughts, with your convictions, with your priorities, and with My sheep!? 
    • Did you believe I was the Truth? Did you seek out Who I Am in all things? Did you speak then, the Truth, at every opportunity? 
    • Did you teach it to your children?
    • Did you train your gifts with it?
    • Did you suffer for it?

    One last note: Is your Life stirring people to ask you about the hope within you? Or at least, accusing or mocking or rejecting you because of the evidence of that hope? If not, may I suggest, your hope looks more like this world’s ‘hope’ than the hope Yeshua came to give?


      Right now, the questions still remain within our grasp to solidify as an answer for ourselves. We are promised, and God keeps His promises, that one day, He will take the choice out of our hands; having given us every opportunity: our hope will land on Proverbs 10:28. 

      Look around you, as you see the sleepy brothers and sisters moving through your scope of vision; then look within you – is your hope firmly rooted within? 

      Will we see it as the grace and mercy of God that He brings a great offence to our conscience to wake us up before it’s too late? There is no reason to be intimidated by any subject of what’s relevant to shaping our hope. Now is the time! Solidify our Hope, O God! And make us like your Son, Yeshua, ready to give that hope to Your precious children! 

      Counter the Culture, dear fellow-sheep! Fight the good fight! The Victory is won, this is our HOPE!

      ✡ Grace and peace be yours in Full Measure, in Yeshua the Messiah! ✡

      Awake! – Part 9 – Signs

      April 24, 2017 at 4:06 am (WSGD Newes) (, )

      The day/night/evening Yeshua was born and at His death, Adonai, put signs in the heavens. We all know about the star the night He was born. In fact, with our technology today, we can go back and look for ourselves! What a gift we have in the days we live in! The day, the hour, He took His last breath, there was a 3 hour solar eclipse! Just a small fact for those who might shrug their shoulders at that. A normal solar eclipse last only about 7-8 minutes with the moon blocking our sun. A 3 hour eclipse is a GOD thing! It’s has never happened since. Nor the alignment of the stars quite like the night He was born, though some say the day God created the heavens, earth, and all that was in them, was the same. No one can know for sure. The sign from Revelation 12, as seen in the pictures here, will happen September 21-23, allowing for some inaccuracy on our part. The sign began last year with Jupiter entering the womb of the Virgin, and as I type, it is in its final phase of retrograde motion. These signs can only be made, set in motion, orchestrated by God, not the enemy, no human – just God. 

      I’m not going to conjecture what will happen on this day. I’ve been given insight in my own study, but it’s up to each one to consult The Sign Giver, for theirs. To say it’s an indication to preparation in the Kingdom of heaven would be an understatement. The body of Messiah has many parts, and thereby, what the ear must be open to hear, the eyes will not hear, nor the hand be prepared in the same way the foot must. That the heart and mind of each child of God must be consecrated and ready; there will be no exception.

      There are some things Adonai has pointed out to me I think worth noting. 

      First: This sign will be during the day. The significance of the times we live in, therefore, sheds illuminating signals on things here. For only with the technology we have could anyone know this sign was appearing! Below, I’ve taken a picture from my phone using Stelarium myself. Anyone can go see for themselves. 

      Second: I am leary of those who try to say exactly what will happen as a result. I am keeping the whole of Scripture in mind. During Yeshua’s birth, a handful of people really knew what that sign meant at the time, much less, laid eyes on its fruition. On the day Yeshua died, there were other signs happening that distracted, as hard as it may be to believe, people from noticing the eclipse. There was a storm, earthquake and the veil was rent in the temple. There was also a Lunar eclipse! The sky was busy that day! Still, too many, were oblivious to the signs and their meaning. I believe history will repeat itself this year. I’ve personally experienced the “blow off” in people who I thought believed in the Word of God, and Yeshua as their Messiah. Tears flow daily at the apathy I see. Yet just like when Yeshua came people were dulled by the worries of this life, focused on their plans, and…well…sick of waiting on God or just plain mad at Him. Also, they were looking for something totally different. They did not know their Word, or the One who wrote it. 

      Third: No matter what happens in September a line in the sand is being drawn in the Kingdom of Heaven. It would be unwise for anyone who says they follow Yeshua (Jesus) not to give this the attention due it. 

      Forth: there’s no small significance to the Feast this sign falls in. If one doesn’t understand that, they will miss important details. 

      I’m not one of those who leans towards the rapture of the church. Though I see indications of the possibility. Though I’ll clarify, I don’t see anywhere in scripture where anyone who says they follow Yeshua will not be persecuted for it. Here in America, those who have paid with their lives for Him, are either hidden or extremely rare at this point.This is not counting those who are American who have died, been jailed, stoned and the like, in other countries. Being called a “Jesus-freak”, or mocked in kind, hardly comes close. I’ve had family members and friends avoid and cut me off, but this is hardly persecution. It hurts, but it’s nothing compared to what’s coming. 

      I’m prepared, looking for Him everyday, as instructed by Yeshua. Yet, staying the course of looking for His work He wants done here and now is my primary focus. I believe, this way of living is the only way from here on out. Lamps need to be full, hearts need to be clean, lives need to speak louder than words to our testimony that Yeshua is Lord! Mouths must be ready to speak and lose much in the days ahead. 

      Most important to me to say here in this blog is this: this is not a fearful thing!   

      Why be afraid? 

      Luke 21:28 – Yeshua speaking…

      When these things start to happen, stand up and hold your heads high; because you are about to be liberated! 


      In this same chapter we are told, friends and relatives will betray us. To make up our minds not to worry, to keep watch on ourselves, and not let our hearts become dulled, stay alert, always praying. There is nothing that comes from the mouth of Yeshua that says we should fear, or even that we should be so focused on signs and wonders and world events that we become consumed with them. In fact, there is only one verse that some may see as a reason to fear. 

      Luke 21:34-35

      But keep watch on yourselves, or your hearts will become dulled by carousing, drunkenness and worries of everyday living, and that Day will be sprung upon you suddenly like a trap! For it will close in on everyone, no matter where they live, throughout the world.  

      Having shared that verse, I reiterate, I’m not saying The Day Yeshua’s referring to here is happening in September. I, only know that this sign means something very significant, and the days we live in are the end of the end. It’s not time to be slack about anything the the Word (Yeshua) has said. To do so now, I think it’s safe to say, is very risky. 

      That being said, one must know that there are those being prepared for every single minute that leads to the 1000 year reign. Some may well be caught up before the really hard stuff comes. Some are being prepared for being left behind in that case. Some being prepared to die for their trust and stand for Yeshua the Messiah. Some prepared to die of “natural” causes. Everyone is called to die to themselves everyday!

      God is working every angle, He is far more concerned with every soul than even they can care for themselves. His love, trumps satan’s hatred – forever! His grace out wits the enemies accusations – to eternity! His finished work, is final! If there is fear in your heart at the mention of this sign, you need only rectify it with Him. For only if you are holding on to your life will fear enter in. Otherwise, joy unspeakable shall be your companion, and the process of daily walking with Him, letting Him clean us up, train us, love us, teach us, live through us, well…this won’t change except to add to the joy that we are alive to see such a sign! Straight from Heaven from the beginning of time! The wonder of it is truly amazing! This is why I share it! Not to brow beat, or threaten, or preach. God is the convictor, not I. I’m excited! I am praising Him! I’m honored to be able to be here for such a time as this! The glory of God is about to be unveiled, His justice for all those who have suffered at the hand of a tyrannical enemy is about to finally come! I rejoice in His plan, His ways, Himself!! Who wasn’t overjoyed to watch the Red Sea part and close again on the enemy? The shepherd’s in the fields who heard the angels sing, the magi who saw the Star and then the Saviour as a babe, had nothing but joy! Those who watched Yeshua, heal the sick, cast out demons, calm seas, raise the dead and rise again from His own; these found Life and joy burst from within who truly loved Him! Fear not! For once again, we watch the truth of His Word unfold before our eyes! 

      ✡ May the grace of the Lord, Yeshua the Messiah be with you all. ✡

      Awake! – Part 8 – Power/Authority

      April 20, 2017 at 10:58 pm (WSGD Newes) (, , )

      Matthew 28:16-20

      So the eleven talmidim (disciples) went to the hill in the Galil where Yeshua (Jesus) had told them to go. When they saw Him, they prostrated themselves before Him; but some hesitated. Yeshua came and talked with them. He said, “All authority in Heaven and on Earth has been given to Me. Therefore, go and make people from all nations into talmidim (disciples), immersing them into the reality of the Father, the Son and the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit), and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember! I will be with you always, yes, even until the end of the age.”   

      Luke 10:17-20

      The seventy came back jubilant. “Lord”, they said, “with Your Power, even the demons submit to us!” Yeshua said to them, ” I saw satan fall like lightning from Heaven. Remember, I have given you Authority; so you can trample down snakes and scorpions, indeed, all the enemy’s forces; and you will remain completely unharmed.  Nevertheless, don’t be glad that the spirits submit to you; be glad that your names have been recorded in heaven.”   

      The most important thing to being awakened is getting to know Yeshua the Messiah, first and foremost! The next priority is to know what it means to have been reborn through Him into the Kingdom that is more real and more important than the one we were born into as wee babes from our mothers wombs. 

      Think not, for one second, that Yeshua wasn’t familiar with our temptations to be distracted by a very distracting world. Full of not just evil, but the goodness of God too. 

      Hebrews 4:14-16

      Therefore, since we have a Great Cohen Gadol  (High Priest) who has passed through to the highest heaven, Yeshua, the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we acknowledge as true. For we do not have a Cohen Gadol unable to empathize with our weaknesses; since IN EVERY RESPECT HE WAS TEMPTED JUST AS WE ARE, the only difference being that He did not sin. Therefore, let us confidently approach the throne from which God gives grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace in our time of need.  

      Fictionally, one could guess, that it went through His mind…

      “Father, would it be so bad to remain Your faithful servant as a carpenter with Yoseph? It’s good work, with many opportunities to do Your work.”

      “Father, look how Havah from the house of Samuel worships and serves You. I wonder, dear Father, what it would be like to have a wife and children such as You have made it to be?”

      “Father, look, look how much You are needed here! So many blind, so many deaf, so many lost, would more time not be good?”  

      Of course, it’s hard to speculate such things. Yeshua has a stigma that makes such speculations feel almost blasphemous! But, I digress to the truth of Hebrews 4. I don’t think it’s possible to speculate that He was tempted to evil. But tempted to do things different than His Father in heaven desired, exactly, yes, I think it’s more than possible. Why?

      Luke 22:41-43

      He (Yeshua) went about a stones throw away from them, kneeled down and prayed, “Father, if You are willing, take this cup away from Me; still, not My will but Yours be done.” There appeared to Him an angel from Heaven giving Him strength, and in great anguish He prayed more intensely, so that His sweat became like drops of blood falling to the ground.  

      Look at that verse very closely, really read it. Most people skip the most important part, emphasizing only His willingness to yield to God. Which is highly important, mind you, I agree. But let’s really look at the angel part, this angel comes to strengthen Him, God knew the temptation here needed extra attention, His compassion poured down onto our Saviour here. Yet, look! Yeshua prayed more intensely to the point of sweating like drops of blood – after – the angel came. I don’t know about you, but often when I’m at a yielding point, the strength God sends to keep me headed in His direction comes with a fight. Head knowledge alone, of the right thing to do, is not the key. It’s fighting the feelings, emotions and sometimes very physical nature to run the opposite way! So here we can see that Yeshua knows this as we do! Sometimes it’s hard to understand why it was God’s will that Yeshua not sin, and that He moved heaven and earth to keep that from happening, when it would seem that it’s God’s will that we sin. It doesn’t seem fair. 

      For those of us who understand the very nature of God’s plan through Yeshua from the beginning of time I need not break this down for you. For those of you who are stuck on this part of God and His nature and plan, may I suggest you study from the beginning (Genesis) asking Him, Himself to reveal to you the difference between us and Yeshua. This is the only way you will know for sure. There are hundreds of teachings on it, yes, but true knowing comes from our own “bloody searching” and I’m not being British in the pun. There’s a searching that this world teaches, it’s rather limp and easy to quit. The searching required to really know the free-setting-truth, is a lifetime commitment. As in you take your last breath looking. It does not take that long, but I’m driving this home to show the difference between a curious seeker, and a driven desire for God alone. This is why there are few who find the narrow path. As I said, this world, is distracting and can be very convincing, that it’s ways can seem so trustworthy. To be awake, we must abandon the thought that this world’s ways have any value whatsoever. To say that this is hard to do is an understatement. Yet, the rewards of having persevered to this goal is, at this moment in time, beyond telling. To get to the Kingdom where no desire to sin, no desire for anything but God’s will is the total existence of man kind, this is the Promise that God has kept in Yeshua, with Yeshua, for us. This is the fellowship of Following Yeshua. Yes, we sin less and less, here and now, as we learn from Him, listen to and obey Him, and do the work He did/does until the Day comes when God – The Almighty and The Power of ALL, says “Enough!” to an enemy who defied Him long long ago, and set out to make of us “little defiler’s” along with him. Misery loves company. 

      There is a very real and very significant authority we begin to exercise once Yeshua is Master and Lord of our lives. If we look around, and into the past, we find that the authority Yeshua spoke of in Luke 10, has obviously not been something many have understood. I’m learning. To be awake, and help others in the same way, we must learn what this means. What could be more important for us to dive into to study at such a time where the Great deception is in effect and it seems that the whole world is held in the grip of that power? How do we begin to understand the following scriptures if we don’t fully lay hold of the authority Yeshua gives us?

      John 16:33

      “I have said these things to you so that, united with Me, you may have shalom. In the world, you have tsuris  (troubles). But be brave! I have conquered the world!”  

      1 John 4:4-6

      You, children, are from God and have overcome the false prophets, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.  They are from the world; therefore, they speak from the world’s viewpoint; and the world listens to them. We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God doesn’t listen to us. This is how we distinguish the Spirit of Truth from the spirit of error.  

      1 John 5:3-5

      For loving God means obeying His commands. Moreover, His commands are not burdensome, because everything which has God as its Father overcomes the world. And this is what victoriously overcomes the world: our Trust. Who does overcome the world if not the person who believes that Yeshua is the Son of God?  

      (There’s more: Look them up😉. Romans 8:31-37; 1 Corinthians 15:57-58; 1 John 2:13)

      At a critical hour one must be able to understand their resources, how they are obtained and the limit or limitlessness of them. We are at the critical hour, our resource is Yeshua, how He is understood and the limitlessness of all He is to us is of great importance!

      ✡ To the One who can keep us from falling and set us without defect and full of joy in the presence of His manifest Glory of God present with man – to God alone, our Deliverer, through Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord – be glory, Majesty, power and Authority before all time, now and forever more. Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah! ✡

      Awake! – Part 7 – Discernment

      April 17, 2017 at 1:20 am (WSGD Newes)

      1 Thessalonians 4:1-4

      I solemnly charge you before God and the Messiah Yeshua, who will judge the living and the dead when He appears and established the Kingdom: proclaim the Word! Be on hand with it whether the time seems right or not.  Convict, censure and exhort with unfailing patience and with teaching.  For the time is coming when people will not have patience for sound teaching, but will cater to their passions and gather around themselves teachers who say whatever their ears itch to hear.  Yes, they will stop listening to the Truth, but will turn aside to follow myths. 

      It’s nearing the end of Passover 2017/5777. Signs have been given, whether people are true followers of Yeshua or not, everyone knows something is at the cusp of real trouble. I saw an article today that said that this month more than any time in history the words World War III have been googled in uncharted numbers. For those who are True Followers of Yeshua the Messiah, a certain veil has been lifted, and the challenge is a balance between humility and revelation. For with revelation (knowledge) come the risk of pride and deception! The single most important endeavor one can make right now is to seek and search as for priceless treasure Who is Yeshua? For we are in the Great deception, the time of a falling away, and it’s target is those who think they know – a) their Bibles and b) The One who wrote it. 

      You see, the deception is aimed at humanity as a whole, but it’s intensity via great persecution is targeted for those who have been found by The Truth, but having drank a little and not immersed themselves into it, can be led astray by the distortion of the Word of God, and just like in the garden at the beginning, asked: “Did God really say?”  The enemies tactic never changes but does, can, and will intensify. His pattern is to replicate (as this is all he can do) everything God has done, will do, and is doing. At least as he sees it, which is far from the truth/reality we’ve been given the ability to see with through the power of the Spirit of God living within us as a result of Yeshua being our Master. As we read in countless scriptures, the most well known replication will be to destroy His (Gods) Image in mankind. I’ll not put all the Scriptures here, for part of the Truth becoming and being solidified in each soul is their own seeking, searching and finding on their own. It’s what Paul was saying when he admonished Timothy to study to show himself approved unto God. If one fails to do this, no excuses, they will be decieved. This time of deception is now aimed primarily at the Believer! Common sense alone knows that one need not waste effort trying to deceive the already deceived; Atheist, Agnostic, Catholic, Mormon, Muslim, Buddhist and the like. So common sense alone also shows that the last remaining objective is to twist and distort so subtlety and slowly and thoroughly the Word of God that points to Salvation – Yeshua, that little by little and finally quite thoroughly the Christian/True Followers of Yeshua will fall away – be deceived. 

      Here is a Truth, which is not worded in sequence and exactly as I will write it, but can be found in the Word of God. God does nothing on accident or without express and solid purpose. The first 66 Books of the Word of God were written in Hebrew, to a Hebrew nation by a God who chose to reveal Himself through the Hebrew people, in that language. Yeshua, His Son, was brought into that same nation, with that same language, cutting His human teeth on those same Books, complete with Torah, Tanakh, Writings, the Laws, Feast, all of it.  Yeshua, Himself, said He did not come to take away all that but to COMPLETE, FILL IT UP, FULFILL IT.  Yeshua, is the Whole Word of God. He celebrated the Feast that God commanded His people to keep, not because of the people, but because (look it up) they are God’s feast! There is a reason He went out of His way to make sure we did not confuse Who’s Feast they are and Why He wanted them perpetually observed. 

      The enemy would counterfeit them, try to change them, just like he does everything God does. 

      Scripture stating Who really has authority. 

      Daniel 2:20-22

      …in these words: “Blessed be the Name of God from eternity past to eternity future! For wisdom and power are His alone; He brings the changes of seasons and times; He installs ands deposed kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those with discernment. He reveals deep and secret things; He knows what lies in darkness; and Light dwells with Him.    

      Here is where God’s Word warns what the Antichrist will do. 

      Daniel 7:25

      He (antichrist) will speak words against the Most High and try to exhaust the Holy ones of the Most High. He will attempt to alter the seasons and law; and the holy ones will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time.    

      Please don’t be distracted by the reference to time, times and half a time here. Instead focus on the words being replicated between the two references. Timelines are not the focus here. Where the craftiness of our enemy is, so that we may be discerning! Truly, if we are full of God’s wisdom and discernment, timelines won’t be a primary concern for anyone. Since we are living to be in fellowship with Yeshua all the time. The end doesn’t really change anything, except where we must be diligent and fight the good fight with the real enemy of our souls, not human flesh but the spirit of deception and deceiver himself.

      You may be asking why I’m talking about these Feast and emphasize Yeshua’s birthing heritage. Put very simply, if you take Yeshua out of this context, you won’t know Him as needed to not be decieved. Also, the end times are cloaked and wrapped in His Appointed times/Feasts. How can anyone be on time for an appointment if they have been deceived into thinking the appointments have been canceled? This is a serious question, I am pressed by the Spirit to bring these questions to anyone who is searching for The Truth. The Scriptures necessary to bring you to the Truth are all right there, with the Spirit of Truth to guide you into all Truth. I can not convince one soul, I can only point to Yeshua, His Whole Word, and His Spirit to say, “That is the Way, walk thee therefore in it.” It’s the only Authority we’ve been given and indeed our call. Not mine, all followers of Yeshua! 

      Because Yeshua is a Hebrew, we must eliminate all images that seek to disillusion Who He is. Removing all Roman garb from His clothing, all Roman symbolism from His nature. He kept to His roots for a reason! He sent Paul, who was first and foremost among his people, at the time, versed and full of knowledge of those roots, to teach the gentiles of those Ways and Who Yeshua is. God does nothing on accident. 

      If we think about it, it’s no different from us. If one tries to teach someone about me, but puts my life inside a context of India, with that language and that perception, I will be unknown. Why? Because America is different, it’s language, customs and traditions shape those who grow up there, it’s also diverse and needs context. I’m American and the context of who I am has been shaped by God in that heritage. Some of which is founded on the same principles of His Kingdom, but much that has been distorted. A person born into a Spanish culture, has a richness and depth that mine does not. Remember, God is the One who diversified the nation’s, He does nothing on accident. But His purpose is that all nations, all tongues, all His creation is to come to Him, His likeness, His Kingdom; which He began at the beginning. GENESIS all the way through to Revelation, nothing added, nothing taken away. It’s not a matter our perspectives, it’s a matter of His! Yeshua was clear, He is the Way, no one else gives that access, no one, from any other heritage. It’s a narrow way, because it’s exclusive. It’s not any way, any god, any belief, any perspective. What is the need for discernment, if that is the case? Why would Yeshua speak with such authority about this subject if there is any other way? 

      Please don’t misunderstand the point here. I’m not saying that those who don’t know Yeshua from the Hebraic perspective are unsaved. I’m saying that there are processes to relationship. When we meet someone, we get their name, then we learn our commonalities, then we learn each other’s principles, then we learn about background – what made us who we are, what shaped our person, who was influential to our life…weaknesses/strengths, etc. There is more to Yeshua! More and more still, beyond His Hebraic roots even! Why stop at such a way station as reading the gospels and new Testament and reading other men’s perspectives? Dive into the Word, take IT as far is it can take you. He promised if we seek Him, He will make Himself found! Don’t seek your Pastors perspective on this, SEEK for yourself to know the Truth, then you shall stand firm in what God, Himself had established in you, no deception will fool you! No sleep will fall upon your eyes to lull you away. Don’t take my word for it, don’t take anyone else’s word as the final Word! Trust ONLY The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Yahweh, Elohim, El Shaddi, Salvation, God with US, Emmanuel, Yeshua the Messiah, Son of the Living God, The Word, The Way, The Truth, The Life, First and Last, The Redeemer, The Passover Lamb, Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world! Trust Him, only Him, and nothing but Him; so help you, God!

      I will leave you with His Word, may He pull you into it, and lead you deeper into it, to know Him, and be awakened.  

      Daniel 11:32-35

      Those who act wickedly against the Covenant he (the Antichrist) will corrupt with his blandishments, but the people who know their God will stand firm and prevail. Those among the people who have discernment will cause the rest of the people to understand what is happening; nevertheless, for a while they will fall victim to the sword, fire, exile, and pillage. When they stumble, they will receive a little help, although many who join them will be insincere. Even some of those with discernment will stumble, so that some of them will be refined, purified and cleansed FOR AN END YET TO COME AT THE DESIGNATED TIME.   

      Revelation 14:9-12

      Another angel, a third one, followed them and said in a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and it’s image and receives the mark on his forehead or on his hand, he will indeed drink the wine of God’s fury poured undiluted into the cup of His Rage. He will be tormented by fire and sulfur before the holy angels and before the Lamb, and the smoke from their tormenting goes up forever and ever. They have no rest, day or night, those who worship the beast and it’s image and those who receive the mark of its name.” This is when perseverance is needed on the part of God’s people, those who observe His commandments and exercise Yeshua’s faithfulness.  

      1 Timothy 4:1-2

      The Spirit expressly states that in the acharit-hayamim  (latter times) some people will apostatize from the faith by paying attention to deceiving spirits taught by demons. Such teachings come from the hypocrisy of liars whose own consciences have been burned, as if with a red-hot branding iron.   

      2 Thessalonians 2:3-4

      Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way. For the Day will not come until after the Apostasy has come and the man who separates himself from Torah has been revealed, the one destined for doom. He will oppose himself to everything that people call a god or make an object of worship; He will put himself above them all, so that he will sit in the Temple of God and proclaim that he himself is God. 

      1 Corinthians 3:16-17

      Don’t you know that you people are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you? So that if anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you yourselves are that temple.  

      ✡ May grace and shalom be yours in full measure, as you come to a full knowledge of God and Yeshua our Lord. ✡

      Awake! – Part 6 – Focus

      April 12, 2017 at 5:00 am (WSGD Newes) (, , , )

      John 6:35

      Yeshua answered, “I Am the Bread which is Life! Whoever comes to Me will never go hungry, and whoever trusts in Me will never be thirsty.”  

      John 8:12

      Yeshua spoke to them again: “I Am the Light of the World; whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness but will have the Light which gives Life.” 

      John 10:7, 9, 11, 27-28, 30

      So Yeshua said to them again, “Yes, indeed! I tell you that I Am the Gate for the Sheep.”

      I Am the Gate; if someone enters through Me, he will be safe and will go in and out and find pasture.

      I Am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down His life for the Sheep. 

      My sheep listen to My Voice, I recognize them, they follow Me, and I give them eternal Life. They will absolutely never be destroyed, and no one will snatch them from My hand. 

      I and The Father are One.  

      John 11:25

      Yeshua said to her, “I AM the Resurrection and the Life! Whoever trusts in Me will live, even if he dies…  

      John 14:6

      Yeshua said, “I AM the Way – and the Truth and the Life: no one comes to the Father except through Me.   

      John 15:1, 5

      I Am the Real Vine, and My Father is the Gardner.

      I AM the Vine and you are the branches. Those who stay united with Me, and I with them, are the ones who bear much fruit; because apart from Me you can’t do anything.   

      John 18:36-38

      My Kingship does not derive it’s authority from this world’s order of things. If it did, My men would have fought to keep Me from being arrested by the Judeans. But My Kingship does not come from here. “So then,” Pilate said to Him, “You are a King after all.” Yeshua answered, “You say I AM a King. The reason I have been born, the reason I have come into the world, is to bear witness to the Truth. Everyone who belongs to the Truth listens to Me.” Pilate asked Him, “What is Truth?”  

      As we can see, Yeshua (Jesus) made very clear statements about who He IS. He announces His identity. He then puts forth the question: “Who do you say that I Am?” This question is still ringing and echoing from His mouth and won’t stop until The Day when He abrupts the flow with “I know you. You are Mine. Or I never knew you, away from Me.” Testimony after testimony of those whose mouths confessed and announced Who Yeshua IS, and their lives that spoke as loud as their mouths continue to sound along the fabric of time, united with His declaration of who He IS. Along with the Father whose declaration can not be more clear, “and the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) came down on Him in the form of a dove; a Voice came from Heaven, “You are My Son, whom I Love; I AM well pleased with You.” (Luke 3:22) and again, Then a cloud enveloped them; and a Voice came out of the cloud, “This is My Son, whom I love. Listen to Him!” (Mark 9:7) To be initially roused from the dead, born again, one must be given eyes to see Yeshua, acknowledge His Authority as God and Savior, and begin to truly live. To be kept awake, made ready to live with Him forever, He must be the First and the Last, Beginning and End and the only Authority one consults and yields to until that Shofar shall blow on The Day, where He comes to bring His Bride Home. So it is very simple, to stay awake, one only needs to confess Yeshua is Lord, then do as He did, nothing more and nothing less and we are assured to be ready for anything – anything as He acts on His Will to bring about His Plan, beginning, middle and end. 

      Are we awake? Let’s take our “temperature” and see. With only one thing Yeshua said and did, acted upon and or against. Let’s see if we are asleep or awake. 

      Matthew 5:38-44

      You have heard that our fathers were told, ‘eye for eye and tooth for tooth’. But I tell you do NOT stand up against someone who does you wrong. On the contrary, if someone hits you on the right cheek, let him hit you on the left cheek too! And if a soldier forces you to carry his pack one mile, carry it for two! When someone asks you for something, give it to him, when someone wants to borrow something from you, lend it to him. You have heard that our fathers were told, ‘Love your neighbor – and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, LOVE YOUR ENEMIES! Pray for those who persecute you!   

      Did Yeshua do what He told us to do? Some could say He stood up for Himself when arguing with the various people and leaders. Yet it should be noted, He never defended Himself. Only His Father. When Peter tried to fight for Him at His arrest, He rebuked Peter, healed immediately the injured soldier and offered NO resistance when taken into custody. He never raised a hand in defence or retaliation when struck, spit on, insulted, abused, flogged, and beaten. Not one time. The only fighting He spoke of was spiritual, He would not, and could not be drawn into the physical world of violence. He never spoke of our “right” to bear arms, to free speech, or fair treatment by mankind. Only where it resided with us, to give these rights to others, but not to claim them for ourselves. Let’s now go see if Peter learned from his mistake on the Mount of Olives where Yeshua was arrested. 

      1 Peter 2:19-25

      For it is grace when someone, because he is mindful of God, bears up under pain of undeserved punishment. For what credit is there for bearing up under a beating you deserve for doing something wrong? But if you bear up under punishment, even though you have done what is right, God looks on it with favor.  Indeed, this is what you were called to: because the Messiah too suffered, on your behalf, leaving an example so that you should follow in His steps. He committed no sin, nor was any deceit found in His lips. When He was insulted, He didn’t retaliate with insults; When He suffered, He didn’t threaten, BUT HANDED THEM OVER TO Him (the Father) who judges justly. He Himself bore our sins in His body on the stake, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness – by His wounds you were healed. For you used to be like sheep gone astray, but now you have turned to the Shepherd, who watches over you.   

      1 Peter 3:8-9

      Finally, all of you, be one in mind and feeling; love as brothers; and be compassionate and humble-minded, not repaying evil with evil or insult with insult, but, on the contrary, with blessing. For it is to this you have been called, so that you may receive a blessing.   

      One could say the entire book of 1 Peter is dedicated to this subject alone, to be awake, one must not only read it, but put it into action. 

      Now, we who live in America will find this reflection of Yeshua, the following of Him in this way to be rather difficult. Arguments have been made, reciting the old Testiment and examples of David (who by the way did not retaliate to Saul), and the many times God instructed His people to fight and destroy entire nations. From my own study and time spent in prayer asking for wisdom I came away with the final Word being Yeshua’s as Authority. Adonai said, ‘behold I make all things new’ – Yeshua said the same. To lay down our arms and weapons now, may seem ludicrous, but it shall prove our trust in our Defender more. The Truth – we have nothing to lose here folks! Another argument is to stand in defence of our loved ones. This one is hard, and as I did, you must seek out the will of God for yourself, measure it with the backdrop of scripture and do as He leads. Yet, again, Who is it that You say that He is? Is He your Defender, is He your loved ones Defender?  Do you believe as He did, and trust in Him (the Father) for justice? Is who you say He is the same as all those scriptures above where He, Himself defines who He IS? These are hard questions. The days ahead, especially, do not bode well for those who follow Yeshua and stand for His Way, His Truth, and His Life. Persecution is sure to come to us all before The Day. Who will you decide to say that He is?

      To be asleep on this one issue, any one issue, that He has sent forth His Word to clearly instruct us with, we risk a deeper sleep to settle one upon another. 

      As for me and my house, I will serve the Lord, follow in His footsteps and trust everything about and concerning me to His care. As I do so He arms me for war with altogether different weapons of warfare. I am continually at His feet in learning of them, and how to use them. The first, learn the Truth, and let it set you free, then live it! The second, speak the truth, let Him deal with the offense of it. Third, hold fast to the Truth all the way to the end. He comes soon, and His justice is with Him! Focus!

      🔯 In Your grace, hear our voice; Adonai, in keeping with Your justice, revive us. The pursuers of carnality are getting close; those distancing themselves from Your Word. Your are close by, Adonai, and all your Instructions are Truth. Plead our cause, and rescue us; in keeping with Your Promise, revive us. Salvation (Yeshua) is far from the wicked, because they don’t seek Your Teaching. Great is Your compassion, Adonai, in keeping with Your rulings, revive us! Although our persecutors and foes are many, let us not turn away from Your instruction. The main thing about Your Word is that it is true; and all Your rulings last forever. May our courage give glory to Your Name, Yeshua our Messiah, and may You continue to keep us sheltered under Your protection as long as we may shine Your Light into a dark world. Shalom to you all in the Name of Yeshua the Messiah 🔯
