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!

    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.
