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!

Awake! – Part 18 – To Preserve and Protect

June 21, 2017 at 1:34 am (WSGD Newes) (, , , , , )

It is perhaps the greatest tragedy to God’s heart; that human beings greatest mis-judgement is about The JUDGE, Himself. 

Picture the field of flowers in the movie Wizard of Oz. You know the one where they go in to take a short-cut and the poppies put them to sleep? It’s illustrative for two reasons:

  1. To be put to sleep, stops progress. No one goes anywhere. 
  2. The state of sleep can alter reality and trick us into thinking we’re in action when we’re really just laying there snoring.

The enemy of God is giddy when people are asleep! Illusions are his playground. God deals only in wide awake reality. This is why it’s the fool who says there is no God. And notice where the fool says it; in his heart. God’s reality is always clearest inside each individual heart. He’s the only One who sees this reality perfectly, clearly and always. We can not even look into our own heart long enough or deep enough to see our hearts exactly like they are. Only God – forever. We will never be given such sight to see. Given our track record it’s plain to see why. There is one thing that helps and is sure; if God is telling us about our hearts we can put our lives on what He’s saying. He tells us about the good and bad of them. But only us, about our own; or Him about His. Never ever ever will He sit and tell you or I about another human beings heart. That’s His territory, and He is zealous of it. At best He may give us insight (discernment) to apply to our own heart the nature or state of another’s for that moment only. But conclusive and fixed stares on another’s heart besides our own and God’s will never be given us. It’s all we can handle to tend or own “yard” in this regard. Personal heart-garden tending is the only spade and rake and shovel we’ll ever be allowed to take up for judgement. Even in this we will have to consult the Gardener for the disease that befalls some of the plants we find there. Why? Because only God can judge anything with absolute MERCY! We have been given the ability to have mercy from one circumstance to another, but not all and not everyone or anyone else’s. God sees where we as a thread in a tapestry begin, what has colored them, shaped or frayed them, strengthened them, weakened them, twisted them; but only He has pulled them through the covering of His love to the end. His choices remain the Mightiest and most effective for all time. His judgement is simply to let our choices that go against His become as big as they need be for us to learn. Consequences are the best juries with accurate verdicts every time. We may be imprisoned by them or set free, only He knows at anytime to which road we are headed at every moment of every day. 

God has alot to say about judgement, do you ever wonder why? Let just sniff the waking salt of common sense for a minute. 

The enemy of God JUDGED himself better than God. This means he JUDGED God as less than himself. Whhaaaooo! The very first sin and worst of all was to become a “judge-or” instead of a “judge-ee”. Pretty revealing once the reality hits us in the totally conscious part of our mind. 

God also doesn’t hesitate to tell us exactly how He judges. The Word is full of His stories, examples and even some of His motives! He doesn’t owe us that! I realize we who have lived in the land of the free may feel the scratching of the chalk board at that thought. We have a tendency to think we’re owed alot of things we have no clue how to see much less have explained to us. Why? Because we are not capable of having all the facts about anything, ever. God can tip our scales in favor of them at times, but all of them are His alone. He’s the only One capable of them. Again it’s His character that enables His infinite ability here. He is love, patience, kindness, mercy, grace; and forgiveness is His signature. His signet ring isn’t worn on human hands, it is His heart. Even Yeshua (Jesus) – the Son of Man said He didn’t come to judge! How can mankind have ever confused saving as judging? Yet this is exactly what the enemy of God desire us to do, misjudge God. This enemy will use every illusion he can muster to get us so deceived into thinking God is a harsh judge. Reality, however, is that God is Yeshua! The God who saves! 

Much confusion comes with our interpretation of wisdom aka discernment. The confusion only comes when we are tricked into thinking we have any of our own! Discernment and wisdom only come from God. So if we are given any, it’s a gift from Him, not a “gut feeling” we get to own. God gives us discernment to protect and preserve. Never to condemn. Not ourselves or anyone else, not a circumstance and especially not God Himself! If any condemnation comes from His discernment given to us, it’s not discernment – it has turned into the enemy’s evil of origin – judging. 

So, when the Day of Judgement comes, it will be more apt to call it the Day of consequence set forth to eternity. Our own choices will then be the eternal state we have shackled ourselves to. Now we see why God has been so patient, longing to give us every chance to change our minds and let Him show us our hearts and His before that Day. Makes me wonder if those who have died years and decades ago are not still in the time of chances. Yet since this kind of thinking has no place in scripture for us to conjecturize I think we must leave that to Him who knows. There are a few examples given us in scripture that clearly tell us this territory is not for us to dabble about. He is clear, “I’ve given you the Word, I’ve given you My Son, I’ve given you My Spirit – if these are not enough to change your path then knowing more won’t change your mind.” 

This post is awkward for me, as I usually place scripture throughout. This time I’ll give the references. It’s up to you to be awakened more and more by looking them up and asking the One who wrote them to show you how to see His heart in order for yours to be made whole. So that you may feel no urge to judge, either God or any one of His children ever again! It’s a transformation that defines freedom! The captive it sets free is us! God is then free to expand our territory into the full gift of discernment and wisdom. For God as a true Judge is the shamar – שמר – the Safegard,  not a governor or elected judge in some supreme Court. His court is heaven, He will judge the enemy and those hosts who fell from Heaven with him, with wrath and vengeance, but His judgement for His children is to safeguard, protect, and preserve. The Word of God reveals this plainly.

Awake! – Part 17 – Immediate Response Protocol

June 19, 2017 at 12:45 am (WSGD Newes) (, , )

If you look up online the definition of Immediate Response Protocol you’ll find some very interesting information. Universities, schools and various government offices have one of these protocols. In other words, they have thought out and pre-planned how to react and deal with threatening and unexpected events. Seems to me to be a very ‘awake’ thing to have. In each incident proposed the result desired is a return “to normalcy”. To further define for correct perspective of ‘normalcy’; each of these institutions want to go back to what was before the incident that got things off track in the first place. To be clear: the kind of immediate response protocol that God would have us follow will never involve going back to what was before. Everything  God does requires a permanent change. This is why Yeshua (Jesus) on the cross said, “It is finished.” Something was being done prior to His arrival on the scene of human journeys, His ‘ministry’ was part of it and His torture and death. After He uttered these words, something was irrevocably different, and never went back to what had been before. Do we know what that was? If not, we have some studying to do. If so, we must enter into the ‘thing’ that began the moment He uttered those words. Remember that same Voice spoke the universe and everything in it into being. 

This next video is an “awake test”, kind-of like the emergency broadcast system test we have all seen on TV’S and radios. There are 12 other parts in the series of these videos along with links in the description box for further study and investigation. It’s up to you should you feel led to pursue the others. I will only be posting this one. I recommend viewing them all, and with the testing and prayerful consideration that The Word encourages us to use; as with all these videos. 

There are some “signs” I look for –  for credibility of any information I spend more than 10 minutes considering. 

  1. Can I find the links and documents mentioned in the information?
  2. Are there two or more witnesses to confirm the testimony?
  3. Does Yeshua first refer to the material being used?
  4. Has the person sharing done their homework; do they link both the beginning of the Word to the middle and end? All three are required. 
  5. Do I feel the Spirit of the Living God leading me? This is actually asked at every point. 

The information contained in this video will either change everything or nothing, I believe. I believe it’s a tool for awakening. It seems something should change as a result of viewing it. If nothing else to make one think harder about what they have held tightly to up to this point in their perspective of the times we are in. May the Spirit of the Living God lead and guide us all as we pursue His good and perfect will!

Awake! Quote of the Day

June 15, 2017 at 1:40 pm (Remodeling the Mind, Thoughts to Ponder, WSGD Newes) (, , , )

Acts 17:11

Now the people here of nobler character than the ones in Thessalonica; eagerly welcomed the message, checking the Scriptures EVERY DAY to see if the things Paul was saying were true.  

1 Peter 1:10-12

The prophets, who testified about this gift of deliverance that was meant for you, pondered and inquired diligently about it. They were trying to find out the time and circumstances to which the Spirit of the Messiah in them was referring in predicting the Messiah’s sufferings and the glorious things to follow. It was revealed to them that their service when they spoke about these things was not for their own benefit, but for yours.  And these same things now have been proclaimed to you by those who communicated the Good News to you through the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) sent from Heaven. Even the angels long to look into these things!  

2 Peter 1:19-21

Yes, we have the prophetic Word made very certain.  You will do well to pay attention to it as to a light shining in a dark, murky place, until the Day dawns and the Morning Star rises in your hearts. First of all, understand this: no prophesy of Scripture is to be interpreted by an individual on his own; for never had a prophesy come as a result of human willing – on the contrary, people moved by the Ruach HaKodesh spoke a message from God.  

James 1:18

Having made His decision, He gave birth to us through a Word that can be relied upon, in order that we should be a kind of firstfruits of all that He created.  

2 Timothy 2:15

Do all you can to present yourself to God as someone worthy of His approval, as a worker with no need to be ashamed, because he deals straightforwardly with the Word of the Truth.  

Isaiah 34:16

Consult the book of Adonai and read it: not one of these things will be missing, none will be lacking a mate. For by His own mouth He gave the order, and by His own Spirit He brought them together.    

Psalms 119:97

How I love Your Torah (Instructions)! I meditate on it ALL day!   

✡ Oh, God, may we seek You as diligently as we would seek shelter, peace, sustenance, and wages! For our lives depends on our willingness to find all truth in You alone! To search it our for ourselves, not relying on any human teaching and others seeking to make us transformed. For You alone in cooperation, that is relationship with us can bring us into Your Kingdom; where all things needful for every day we live will be found, as You promised. May You make us able to seek You more each day. Not for knowledge alone or self management, but for the joy of finding You! ✡

Awake! – Part 16 – What does Transhumanism have to do with God’s Temple? 

June 13, 2017 at 2:38 am (WSGD Newes) (, , , , , )

This is one of my favorite videos. (At the bottom) Tom Horn is well respected in all circles and a firm Follower of Yeshua. It is well balanced. 

I believe this topic is crucial to the body of Messiah. It’s revelation comes in two parts: the abomination that causes desolation and the mark of the beast. 

It says in Matthew 12:30-32

Those who are not with Me are against Me, and those who do not gather with Me are scattering. Because of this, I tell you that people will be forgiven any sin and blasphemy, but blaspheming the Ruach HaKodesh (Spirit of the Holy One) will not be forgiven. One can say something against the Son of Man and be forgiven; but whoever keeps on speaking against the Ruach HaKodesh will never be forgiven, neither in this age or the age to come.  

It’s important to note some things. First Ruach in Hebrew means: breath, wind, spirit. It is this that brought man to life in the beginning – God’s breath! (See Genesis 2:7)  Our DNA came into being in this act. 

The word – blaspheme in Hebrew is – גדף – qadaph. Listen to its many faceted meanings. Speaking contemptuously, any act contrary to the will of God or derogatory to His power, to revile, cut off, hack, violate His norms, to repudiate, desperately wound or pierce through, a concept alien to biblical thought. 

Listed below are just a few scriptures that connect all these dots. There are many more. This video and these scriptures will help get you started, the rest is for you to test, search, and have the Lord reveal to you. As always I strongly encourage that one read the verses proceeding and preceeding the reference for context. 

Acts 17:24; Is. 66:1-2; Ecc.5:1; Rev. 21:22; 2 Thess. 2:4; Zach. 6:12; John 2:21; 1 Cor. 6:19; 3:16-17; 2 Cor. 6:14-18; Eph. 2:19-22; Rom. 8:9; John 3:4-8; John 14: 22-24; 1 John 4:17; 2 Sam. 14;14; Heb. 9:27; Job 10:9-12; 12:7-25.

He who has ears, let him hear…


✡ May the grace and truth of Yeshua lead us and guide us into His arms of goodness and Life! As we raise our eyes to Him, whose throne is in heaven. As servants who look to His hand as our Master, so may our eyes turn to Adonai our God, until He has mercy on us. Have mercy on us, Adonai, have mercy; for we have had our fill of contempt, more than our fill of scorn from the complacent and contempt from the arrogant! Blessed are You, Adonai, who did not leave us to be prey for their teeth! Our help is in the Name of Adonai, maker of heaven and earth! ✡
