Who You Are…

August 16, 2017 at 2:34 am (Remodeling the Mind, Thoughts to Ponder, WSGD Newes) (, , , , , )

Who are you?

For what we are is only to Someone, never to something. A title, a certificate, a diploma, a degree, a licence, a number, a cause, an address, – no none of these will free you. 

Are you a Mother? Then be a mother, that alone. 

Are you a sister? Then be a sister, that alone. 

Are you a brother? Then be a brother, that alone.

Are you a Daddy? Then be a Daddy, that alone. 

Are you a husband, as wife, a son, a daughter, a friend, an aunt, an uncle, a cousin, a niece, a nephew, a neighbor, a co-worker? Then be that that alone. 

If your children are not with you, tend their wounds in your prayers. Feed them the Word everyday, as if they are still in your womb. Teach them courage with your life. Show them love to your neighbor. Embrace their weakness, comfort, encourage with the orphan, needy, downcast and forsaken. Be His Daughter, be His Son to all. Yes, to your enemy, lay down your offence and defence. To those who demand and expect of you, meet them. To those who slander and gossip and lie about you, be truth, be quiet love, be surrender and be loyal. 

Yet here is the everlasting, unchanging truth. You are a Daughter! You are a Son! Daughter and Son to to a Father in Heaven. His will in heaven as it is on earth. His Kingdom come, His will done. That and that alone. For if you are that Daughter and if you are that Son, then you will be exactly the Mother, Daddy, Sister, Brother, Neighbor… – He needs you to be. 

We are not and never will be what this world defines as valuable. We are a priceless treasure just because He made us, just because He loves us. He would look into your soul and extract all need to protect yourself, project yourself, defend yourself, invent yourself. He would tell you to surrender, to turn the cheek, to bless, bless and praise. To be the exact opposite as this world, it’s ways, it’s thoughts, it’s intentions. Give, if you are without material goods, give your time, your love – give. If you have plenty, buy your needs only and give the rest away. Give time, give ears to hear, give eyes to see, give a heart to understand, give compassion, give mercy, give grace, BE for-give-ness. Don’t forgive yourself, only receive His. Forgiveness of self is in opposition to its nature. Forgiveness only comes from God. See your needs as possibilities, either for a miracle or for a new direction of learning the need really doesn’t exist, (perhaps only in our mind). Pray without ceasing, tell Him your every thought, ask of Him and don’t stop until He answers or takes the thought away. Be grateful for all that is broken, for all that seems wrong – for one day nothing will break, nothing will be wrong, nothing will ever be thought of in such ways again. 

Don’t fear and you won’t be offended. Don’t fear and you won’t need to worry. See! He walks upon the stormy waters, He walks amid the torrent of humanity, He walks with the Authority of One who made it all, there IS NOTHING TO FEAR. To fear is NOT human, it’s from the evil one. Reject it, turn away from it, praise the One who conquers it. Give to all around you the gift of trust, first and above all in Yahweh, then in His Works, then in His power to do all things! Nothing is impossible with God. Everything means something, look for Him in all things and you will find Him..Focus on loving Him first, loving others – all of Life is held in the grasp of these. Did He not say so? Did He not prove it? The proof is in Him, not us. 

Don’t listen! Don’t heed! The call of mankind to stand against mankind! Don’t heed to store up treasures of this world to prepare for the World to come. Don’t listen to them that say get guns, ammo, food and gold! Prepare the heart, store up the treasure of heaven. What’s coming will not need the things of this world, they won’t save, they won’t love Him first and others. Be prepared to give your life for your neighbor, not a bottle of water. Do you trust Him who sent out the twelve with instructions not to take anything with them? Do you trust Him who brought bread from Heaven? Do you trust Him who brought water from a rock? Do you trust Him who has been faithful from the beginning? Then with all you have, or don’t have – live it! 

What’s coming He will do, and He will protect and He will accomplish. Remember, man lives only in every Word that comes from the Mouth of God. So place all your confidence in it, invest all your resources there, and live like it’s true no matter what the eyes see. 

Invest in His children, your brothers and sisters. Investments can mean loss. It hurts to be rejected, it hurts to be betrayed. Invest anyway. The Kingdom within you will not lose but gain. Train to hear His voice and obey it without delay. What good does it do you to train the body to be fit for a kingdom that is going to be destroyed? Will our physical bodies be fallen in His? Will our limitations here and now be there and then? Did He not say we would be given new bodies? If we can fly in His Kingdom now, what will we be able to do when the new comes? Our training in righteousness now will not die, will not cease in the New and undefiled. Strive and endure in the good fight, the fight to say no to this world – it’s ways, it’s thoughts, it’s acceptance, it’s value, it’s approval. Trade it all for His. 

Smile at the grumpy and rude. Do good. Say hello when you want to hide. If you see something needs done, do it – even if it’s not “your job”. Pick up the trash on the street, in the parking lot, in the park, on the trail. If someone cuts you off, praise the Lord for them! If someone says hurtful things to you, say something good to them. Give Yeshua what He paid for – all sin, all offence. All rights, all insanity, all the pain. Do you really believe He purchased them? Will we steal them back and hold back His Kingdom? LIVE what you say you believe! Make an action to each belief, trade a thought of praise for every evil. Build the muscle of trust in the face of fear. Sacrifice and circumcise your heart, pull humility in and hold it tight. Then you will embrace the Shepherd of souls! 

Who you are is a Child of ADONAI ELOHIM, Creator of all, The One and Only Good, Sustainer of Life, Forgiver of Sin, Judge of all evil, Justice that will prevail, The First and Last, King of Heaven and earth, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. BE who you are! BE WHOSE YOU ARE! 

Yeshua (Jesus) was not metaphorical when He spoke of His death. He’s not metaphorical when He speaks of His Life. 

John 1:4-5; 12-13

In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of mankind The Light shines in the darkness and the darkness had not suppressed it. 

But to as many as did receive Him, to those who put their trust in His Person and power, He gave the right to become children of God, not because of bloodline, physical impulse or human intention, but because of God.   

John 8:12; 51

Yeshua spoke to them saying, “I Am the Light of the world; whoever follows Me will NEVER walk in darkness but will have the Light which gives Life.

Yes, indeed, I tell you that whoever obeys My teaching will NEVER see death.”  

Did He not say He would dwell within you? Who you are is HIM! His hands, His feet, His comfort, His care. Did He not say we are united with Him and the Father? Did He not pray this very thing? (John 17) The body of Messiah is made up of us all, shall we not sacrifice as our only temple sacrifice? Sacrifices were made in the presence of His people in His temple with His Priest. Nothing has changed, except the walls are your soul and mine, the Priest is Yeshua and the body still meant as His children united with Him. 

Are we still stuck on “What do You want for me, God?” When the question is what do You want from us? Did Israel not repent as one? Did Nineveh not repent in unity? Does Adonai call lone rangers? No! He calls for a body, many of His children acting on behalf of His Kingdom. Will His churches physically march to help the poor and needy? Widows, orphans, and prisoners? It was never the government’s job to provide for them. There are hundreds of churches in each city, most with His Name attached! Why is there so few to tend His human beloved? Why are church budgets mocking the Savior? Would He throw out money exchangers in your church?Is the church marketing hands and feet, human sacrifice and love or CD’s and books and programs? Are they spending thousands on cards and pamphlets to advertise “unity” or are they encouraging the flocks to leave the comfort of their own homes just one night a week to feed the poor, not with money but with their own hands? Some sacrifice much to donate their feeble extra shekels. Yet honestly that is the easy way for most, no sacrifice is required. Why have insurance companies become a norm? Remember when they didn’t exist and neighbors sacrificed to help those who lost? The Kingdom of heaven is action and sacrifice, not checks and prayers. 

Why do I speak thusly? Because one failure is all our failure. One weakness is all our weakness. We are not counted separate from the Body. Yes, we will ALL stand and account one day. Remember what Yeshua said? Do you believe HE alone is the Way?

Matthew 10:32-33; 40; 42

Whoever acknowledges Me in the presence of others I will also acknowledge in the presence of My Father in heaven. But whoever disowned Me before others I will disown before My Father in heaven. 

Whoever receives you is receiving Me, and whoever receives Me is receiving the One who sent Me. 

Indeed, if someone gives just a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is My talmid (disciple/follower/student) – yes! – I tell you, he will certainly not lose his reward. 

Who you are is His to share. His to move through. His to bless others with. In so doing, we then are blessed. Our blessing unites His body, unites us with Him and the Father and the Kingdom of God shows up with power and might. 

It is important to know who you are. Not like this world defines, but as Yahweh transforms. You and I become a Kingdom! Part of each function of it, each glory! Let this sink in, let Him redefine you. Leave the corporate religious piety, and enter the Kingdom of heaven! Then we will see the need for government and ungodly aid disappear. Our prayers will be answered, our hearts circumcised our lives given up and found anew. Yet it starts by knowing the power of His Salvation, the renaming of you, the launching of His Kingdom within you by knowing Who lives and who dies. He lives, we die. Like a flower that dies, dries up and drops to the ground dead (seed), His Kingdom comes and He raises it back to life to become it’s own plant, not just a single flower, but part of a whole body. Then we are made whole, complete. 

For this is the time of this Word. 

Matthew 13:37-43

He answered, “The One who sows the good seed is the Son of Man; the field  is the world. As for the good seed, these are the people who belong to the Kingdom; and the weeds are the people who belong to the evil one. The enemy who sows them is the adversary, the harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels. Just as the weeds are collected and burned up in the fire, so will it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will collect out of His Kingdom all the things that cause people to sin and all the people who are far from Torah and they will throw them into the fiery furnace, where people will wail and grind their teeth. Then the righteous will shine forth like the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. Whoever has ears, let him hear!”   

✡ May Yeshua the Messiah who dwells richly within us, continue what He has started, for His Kingdom, His power and His glory – forever and ever! ✡

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! ✡

Personal Note

June 8, 2017 at 5:17 am (Mile Stones, Remodeling the Mind, Thoughts to Ponder) ()

My mom and I got together this week. Our usual fully loaded with deep thoughts and ponderings were flying around somewhere on a birds wings. We walked the yard, talked about plants, ideas – then chatted more about things I can’t remember now. It felt weird. Mom and I’s chats usually go down in memory banks well worth the effort to recall if needed but rarely does it take effort. Bits of wisdom, strength and encouragement bubble forth from a time now etched somewhere where Adonai keeps His records of them. Joy sits on the edge of its seat with our talk of Yeshua and His Word, His love, His – everything! Not many can say their strongest bond is the God who made them. I’m sitting here thinking…all my close friends have this hallmark. What a gift!

Yet, with Mom and I’s last tea time, there was a different depth, just as profound. Just being. I wonder…how many people realize that – just being – is all that God requires in beauty? Look at flowers! Just like Yeshua said they don’t spin and toil, they just stand in the ground and receive. What they give they are completely unaware of!

The last year has been hard, for both Mom and myself. Our lives, individually, changed in crazy ways, unexpected. Good and hard. The last 6 months have been a landslide of information that has been jolting. The excitement of learning brings joy, yet at the same time the warfare and heaviness of the times still reminds us we’re finite and get tired and must rest – and just be!  Just sit and chat about ‘stuff’ silly girls! We both have a penchant for desiring to fill each moment up with tons of significance! It’s God’s image in us that calls that out. Yet so, too, does He call out for us to let Him fill things up and not take for granted the small stuff is loaded too! 

Things have shifted much for me. I’ve been asked to step out more boldly, and thus my ‘friends and family’ once thought to be of the same mind and heart have betrayed. Mom, too, has felt the sadness of the same. We silently understand the pain but are counting it as joy as The Word instructs. It’s kind of hard to describe how one counts joys that hurt. I won’t try now. I think it’s a silent knowing. 

I look to the sky, I always have, but lately each day is a possible last. At least as I’ve known it. Truthfully, it is not easy to describe that feeling either. I can’t wait to be with the Lord and in a mind and body that doesn’t have a mind of their own to hurt or disappoint Him! Of all the thoughts of being with the Lord, that last part is what I long for the most! Not discounting the actual being – physically with Him – mind you; but that part where no thoughts betray or rebel, no action signifies anything but His glory – wow! Daily I’m with Him, He is that real to me! I’ve no doubt it will be far better than I experience now, but honestly, right here and now, He blows my mind! I don’t think that’s going to change! Yippee! Hallelujah! I hope it never does. I’m all signed up for an eternity of mind blowing relationship with Adonai Elohim! All this world fades in comparison. 

Just be… 

Thats hard to do in a world needing to be awakened, time running out, hearts continuing to break, lives struggling, bodies failing…eyes drooping. I wonder, always have, what Yeshua must have felt in the same light of my thoughts this way. Then He whispers the answer. Have you heard Him? Just the resonance of His voice is half the answer, a lifetime of food for the soul. Are we inspired and made to feel alive every day? Seems like a tall order. Indeed it is if we think it’s up to us to obtain that! The key is…just listen for, look for – Him – and just be. Be His – in the small stuff, be His, in the heavy, be His, in the rat race, be His, in the unknown, be His, in the knowing, be His, in everything! He becomes all in all that way! That someone’s prayer for someone is just seeing their face in your mind and releasing a butterfly in the heart, picturing them fluttering about landing on flowers, fingers and noses with Abba’s delight sending giggle waves rippling through the air with them. Sometimes the heaviest things in the world are made light in the simplest little things! God is in control. Help me live every hour like that is true, My Lord and King! 

So…if the thoughts of Mom and I’s last chat has inspired these thoughts…perhaps it went deeper than I knew! Grab a loved one or friend and just be together this week! See that God is! 

✡ May the completeness of His grace and depth of His delight hold you inside the shelter of His Wings! ✡

May 21, 2017 at 1:40 pm (Remodeling the Mind, Thoughts to Ponder, WSGD Newes) (, , , )

I love that God saw fit to teach things that through time science has backed up His teaching. I hate that the same science has found a way to remove Him from the source of Truth. 

Here’s proof:

Psalms 97:4

His flashes of lightning light up the world; the earth sees it and trembles.   

Psalms 77:16-18

The water saw You, God; the water saw You and writhed in anguish, agitated to its depths. The clouds poured water, the skies thundered, and Your arrows flashed here and there. The sound of Your thunder was in the whirlwind, the lightning flashes lit up the world, the earth trembled and shook.  

Jeremiah 10:11-13

This is what you must say to them: ‘The gods that did not make heaven and earth will perish from earth and from under heaven.'” God made the earth by His power, established the world by His wisdom, spread out the sky by His understanding. When He thunders the waters in heaven roar, He raises clouds from the ends of the earth, He makes lightning flash in the rain and brings the wind from His storehouses.   

Job 37:2-4

Just listen to the rumbling of His Voice, to the thunder that comes from His mouth! He sends it out under all of heaven, His lightning to the ends of the earth. There follows a sound, a roar – He is thundering with His majestic Voice, and He keeps releasing the lightning even while His Voice is being heard.    

Job 37:11-13

He weighs the clouds down with moisture, and they flash forth His lightning. He, by His plans, turns them around, so they do what He commands them anywhere on earth; He brings them forth on the earth sometimes to punish, sometimes to express His grace.   

I’m always so worshipful of Him! That before scientific endeavors, He explains all things. That even though the scientific math and equations are missing from His explanation – what really matters – He reveals and it’s enough. 

Are you looking for how God has explained the things man takes credit for having discovered and proven? It’s quite helpful to those whom you may be planting seeds, watering and exposing to the Son! Someone once told me, “it’s hard to argue when you say “God said.” This is true. It’s even harder to argue when you can show how you are only repeating what God has said, Himself. 

Job 38:22-27 – God speaking to Job out of storm. 

Have you gone into the storehouses for snow or seen the storehouses for hail, which I save for times of trouble, for days of war and battle? By what path is light dispersed, or the east wind poured in the land? Who cut a channel for the downpours, or a way for the lightning and thunder, causing it to rain where no one is, in a desert without anyone there, drenching the waste and desolate ground, till the tender grass sprouts? 

 

I think it’s interesting how most references to weather related things in the Word of God, are connected to His Voice and battle.

I wasn’t born into a scholarly home, my folks were hard working, Bible believing, people. They didn’t drill religion, they just believed what they read in His Word. They encouraged me to read it, both by spoken word and by example. I watched them read it all my life. Not because they were in distress or crisis, but at all times, everyday most the time. When I was young we would go to Fairplay Colorado where we had a small family cabin amongst one of  the wonders of the world of Aspen trees. When we would take hikes they simply gave God the glory and credit for the things we’d see. It was in their speech, because they believed what He said. There would be incredible thunder storms up there at almost 10,000 feet! As a child I would get scared. They comforted me by assuring me that the same God who put the bush on the mountain that held the eggs of the robin we’d seen that day, was in charge of the lightning and thunder and rain. That, yes, He was mighty and powerful, but He cares for His creatures with tenderness. That the thunder was Him talking to the earth. Though I felt often still scared, and thought perhaps the earth was is trouble and being scolded, it still comforted me to know it was God flashing and calling out in the storm. I grew out of my fear, now I long to hear Him thunder from Heaven, having learned that He’s not talking to the earth, but telling His enemies to stand down! Reminding them He is still watching and taking account! Warning them, that one day these little spurts of storms will become a last and final one to their undoing! 

The real truth to know about lightning and thunder has little to do with what this world thinks it does. 

✡I pray this encourages you to search for Him in all things. To discover that The One True God who created everything, really does say something about everything, and it reveals a Creator that did so for much better reasons than science and technology. He didn’t and doesn’t need any formula to make anything, yet He gave one to each created thing. May we worship Him who created all things, not worship the things He made! Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah! ✡
