The Awe for Adonai… in the Age of Deception ~ final post

Acts 1:7&8: He answered, “You don’t need to know the dates or the times; the Father has kept these under His own Authority. But you will receive power when the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) comes upon you; you will be My witnesses both in Yerushalayim and in Y’hudah and Shomron, indeed to the end of the earth!”

I’m not very happy at the thought of living a lie. Of the thought that daily actions required of me promote lies, enter into lies and mislead. In fact, lately, going out has done nothing but make me down right cranky. In the process I appealed to the Lord, “how can I keep from being robbed of joy by this enemy, Father, if the first thing I see is this deception and more disheartening the people You’ve created just passively going along with it.” Phrases like ‘the new normal’ enrage me… not enrage like a child not getting it’s way, but like Yeshua/Jesus when He upturned the selling tables in His Father’s House kind of enraged. In and of ourselves, we suffer nothing to just go along with what will feed peace. But, when that “peace” insults my Lord and Savior, who created the human body, created the world, and hates lies… are we not to stand in action against such ‘new normals’? Not protest or riot… sorry, this is not Yeshua’s way. Never was, is or will be. It’s our daily actions and living by which we witness to a kingdom we were born for, Yeshua came and died that we might become part of. It may seem to analytical to some but entertain this thought for a minute. Yet bear with it. A mask… what is it? What is its function/purpose? Does it apply in truth to this day? “What, Lord of Life, is Your perspective of this?”

מסכה – Mask – Masecah – disguise, idol

Ma•se•cha’ in modern Hebrew means only a mask or disguise. You can tell the sound similarity between the Hebrew and the English words. In biblical Hebrew, this word means an idol. Interestingly, most Bibles translate it as molten gods. More interesting is the fact that all of these idols are mostly no more than calfs. To be more precise, young male calfs. ‘Ma•se•cha,’ as a mask, was and is still being used very commonly in the spiritual rituals of many religions. You may find them around the globe, including in North and South America. The Latin word is almost identical to that of the Hebrew: ‘masca.’ The most ancient idol/mask was found in Hebron, Israel, and is assumed to be from 7000 BC. If you ever visit Israel Museum in Jerusalem, you can see it exhibited there.

‘Ma•se•cha’ probably comes from the Hebrew root: ‘m.s.ch’, which means ‘to hide’ or ‘a screen.’ The word appears only in the Old Testament. For example,

“They have turned aside quickly from the way which I commanded them; they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed to it, and said, ‘These are your gods, O Israel, which have brought you out of the land of Egypt’”Exodus 32:8

The modern word used for either theater, movie, or computer screens is ‘ma•sach,’ which is also a derivative from ‘ma•se•cha.’

dis·guise

  (dĭs-gīz′)tr.v.dis·guiseddis·guis·ingdis·guis·es1.a. To modify the manner or appearance of (a person, for example) in order to prevent recognition: disguised himself as a guard and escaped.b. To make indistinct or difficult to perceive: disguised the bad taste of the medicine with lemon syrup.2. To conceal or obscure by dissemblance or false show; misrepresent: disguise one’s true intentions.n.1. Clothes or accessories worn to conceal one’s true identity.2.a. Appearance that misrepresents the true character of something: a blessing in disguise.b. A pretense or misrepresentation: His repeated references to his dangerous hobbies were only a disguise to cover up his insecurity.

I realize the next argument for definition will be that I didn’t include the medical definition of a mask. Need I? I am not simply because in this case, it is not truthful to apply today. There is no illness about that benefits one to wear a medical mask. I will not speak or print anything but truth. There may be a virus, they can call it whatever they want. The bubonic plaque it is not, nor eboli, nor a bacterial infectious disease by which a mask may at times be beneficial to wear for medical personale. The general public has been sold a lie about these mask and they have bought it for the most part, mostly because they fail to seek the truth of things in general out for themselves. Fatigue, laziness, or apathy leads most to just “trust the ‘experts’ “. Misapplication of anything can, therefore, be done. With or without evil motives (at least beknown to the individual). In this case, mask are being required of people in the name of a big lie, so what is being disguised? If so, what are we, as Light in darkness called to do from God’s perspective, not ours, not ‘theirs’ – but His alone. The answer?

LIVE THE TRUTH, with confidence in the Truth, who is Himself. Do it with gladness and joy and confidence in the Truth.

This was His answer to me. While I was cranky, grumbling about the lies and the gullibility of us humans, I was being robbed. My perspective was not on Him. It was on the world, it’s inconveniences, it’s perception. I wasn’t walking into the store (without a mask) with a smile of confidence in the Truth and the Lord, but in crankiness which was leading to bitterness and rebellion. I found myself belligerent looking into those cameras at the entry or people talking my picture (they are decieved), with a haughty attitude. I didn’t like it, I knew something was off. I went to the only One who can set my feet on the right path of His will. The interaction created humility in me and changed my heart. Not to enter into the lie by wearing a mask but to live the truth with joy and confidence in Him. He is my mask. My protection from ALL harm, physical, mental, or spiritual. It requires only that my heart is bent towards Him, and my actions reflect the actual truth according to His perspective.

He then brought to my mind the oddest picture. A knife. Interesting…I thought. The next image He gave was of its edge, sharp, it’s uses, cutting, the sense that He was affirming the need for the sharpness of its edge. The next impression was of the feeling I often get when I have been cut by a knife in the kitchen. A metallic taste I get in my mouth instantly, followed by the sensation of flesh being rent, violation almost. He then said, “the reverence or awe of this edge is diluted by human perspective. You get used to handling it, and forget to revere it. You get busy and slip, your deception of being in control causes injury. Revere Me, this is wisdom. I’ll admit I was a bit stunned. The verse about the Word being sharper than a two edged sword, popped into my head. His ways really never cease to be completely different than ours, His thoughts. The mind He gave me took it from there. Here’s two images that came to mind:

Do you see the difference? The inventions of man give us tools that allow us to revere less the edge of a knife. (I’m not saying we should all stop using rags, sponges, ie: tools to clean our knives) Then when we use them we are more inclined to mis-cut…slip. It’s subtle, this dulling of our senses, not nessessarily evil in an obvious way. Just inches us towards being decieved. Makes it possible, if you will. I sat back hard in my chair. His leading me got the job done, with a silly knife, images and His voice. I never would have made the connection. We don’t revere the power of God. We go out into the world and with each passing day, the world’s appearances seem to hold such power, more perceptible in our self centered world, yes. Yet, not in His. He is more powerful than everything we see that is not of Him. His edge is sharp, and accurate. His… is the most important edge I must remember. Nothing can harm me, or cause me to harm another without His precision of intervention. His execution of all things is KING! All those fear based fumblings from human mouths start to lose their power.

If you care about the elderly… you’ll wear a mask. If you care about people… if you want to be a good citizen… if you want to stay out of trouble… if you want to shop for food… if you want people to trust you…

No. Away all fear-based, man approval based, God isn’t in control based, I have to do it myself based, we are more powerful based, a disease is more powerful based, the government is more powerful based AWAY FROM ME!! I am Yeshua the Messiahs!! He bought me with HIS blood, He raised me from this death perception and brought me to the feet of our Father, who is and was and always will be completely trustworthy to follow. I will not listen or follow suite with any action that says otherwise, for me or for my fellow human beings. I will revere the knife edge, My Father, I will not forget His is Supreme authority and power. He has promised to sustain and uphold me, I’m no longer going to live in fear of this world and it’s dull dull edge of no power.

The blurred lines of little deceptions are increasing. Where will we stand and expose ourselves to His veil ripping power? The cost of doing so is increasing. It’s no longer just about not living in the obvious sin mentioned from front to back of the Bible. But a clear cut, if we don’t follow in those obvious things, fellowship with Him to get us through these subtle things will be impossible. He may tell you in one instant, use your mask to go shop and another to refuse to wear it. Will you know the difference? Wearing a mask does not say you agree… though many may see it black and white that way. The truth is HE can tell you to do anything and it’s the right thing, but don’t delude yourself. He is not asking you to wear a mask because the threat to life is real as the world purports. He uses all things to accomplish His will. Don’t buy into a human power based lie, that we can kill people with sickness and disease. That’s His territory! Life and death are His… not now nor ever will be ours or anyone else’s. Life is about human interaction, relationship, love, touching and laying on of hands. Yeshua touched leporous people, His example is key. We must live as if His kingdom is the most powerful, the ONLY power. It may be that He will tell us to defy a 6 ft rule of government, the masking…disguise endorsing lie. We must depend upon His voice each moment to know exactly how to live in action. When I go without a mask it’s in His authority, not rebellion to anyone else’s. When I put it on, it’s in the same spirit as above. Each reveres His power. Each is to live in Him.

To conclude, I would be remiss if I didn’t affirm the obvious. If we are engaged in vacillation or indecision and thus affirmative action in placing our bodies, mind, hearts into the sinless state that we are boldly without any room for misinterpretation for living, told not to do in the Word of God. The ability to be led into the subtle deceptions that will prevail from this point forward will over take us. WE can not live in sin and have communion with God to such the degree of intimacy that is required for these days. If we are fornicating, adulterous, lying to ourselves and/or others, cheating – in any way, hateful and unforgiving toward anyone, slanderous about anyone, jealous and envious of anyone or anything, careless in our speech, vulgar in our thinking, lazy, blaming and comparing to justify any of our actions…we are in sin. Go! Immediately! We must to be cleansed and forgiven by our Father and completely stop the actions we take into those sins (repentence). This is the power of God to save. Cover ourselves in the blood of Yeshua as the robe of righteousness, daily. Be fearless to speak of Him, fearless!! Don’t let the enemy blind you. Saying things like “I don’t know what to say to my children because of…I don’t have to say it’s Yeshua who saves, people already know what I believe…” don’t hold back, don’t give in, don’t be afraid we’ll lose our jobs, ability to shop, ability to do what this world calls living. Be more in awe and in fear of not really living according to His kingdom. Don’t be deterred by the control this world is eluding to. Don’t join in the chaos. Simply serve the Lord and stand out loud for Him, every minute, every day, everywhere at all times. Worship Him and Him alone!!

Finally, take total and complete responsibility for the information you act upon as truth. We do not live in ancient times where it was actually possible for people to truly not know about something going on in the world not immediately in their towns. You can seek the truth in all things yourself, we can not depend on someone else’s word, however, nice, and godly they may be. We are accountable to use the tools God gave us to know for ourselves. The truth about why a government would deceive people… this goes back 1000’s of years folks, not 100’s. You can’t act on the truth of you don’t know it. If nothing else, the time off, whether forced or not provides the time to do your own seeking. There will be no I didn’t know…” excuse on judgment day. What in your Bible doesn’t make sense to you… don’t stop until He, Himself clears it up. Study, and grow in the knowledge of Him – who He is… this is a absolutely 100 percent pay off in spades for your time! No better guarantee will ever exist. Our life exist in being fully alive in Him. There is no room for ourselves…our petty desires that go against His. We must die to ourselves now, to live fully in Him forever.

Scripture abounds for those who want to look up anything said here. Seek, and you will find. Don’t depend on anyone to do your spiritual work for you anymore. If you don’t hear Him, don’t stop until you do. Every single word and action Yeshua spoke and did affirmed the old testament of hearing God, consulting God, obeying what He said, Every work Yeshua spoke testified that we can and will hear His voice. (Look up: My sheep hear My Voice…) it’s all there for each individual to come to without any intervention from man. The Truth (Yeshua – Himself) will set us free!) We reflect Him… we don’t save anyone. He saves. Only Him.

Then He said to me, “Don’t seal up the words of the prophecy in this book (Revelation), because the time of their fulfillment is near.

Whoever keeps acting wickedly, let him go on acting wickedly; whoever is filthy, let him go on being made filthy.

Also, whoever is righteous, let him go on doing what is righteous; and whoever is holy, let him go on being made holy.

Pay attention!” Says Yeshua ” I am coming soon, and My rewards are with Me to give to each person according to what he has done. I am the א (Alef) and the ת (Tav), the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

How blessed are those who wash their robes (actions), so they have the right to eat from the Tree of Life and go through the gates (judgement) into the city! Outside are homosexuals, those involved with the occult and with drugs, those sexually immoral, murderers, idol-worshippers, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. “I, Yeshua, have sent My angel to give you this testimony for the Messianic communities. I am the Root and Offspring of David, the bright Morning star. The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come!’ Let anyone who hears say ‘Come!’ And let anyone who is thirsty come – let anyone who wishes, take the water of life free of charge.”

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

“The One testifying to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon!” Amen! Come, Lord Yeshua!

May the grace of the Lord Yeshua be with all! ~ Revelation 22:10-21

The Voice of God

January 18, 2015 at 12:33 am (Poems) (, , , , , , , , , )

image

Purest sound – sweetest silent crescendo
How supreme You are to me
The splendor of my soul
Love in broken melodies and tones
Shaking my frame – aligning my bones
Break forth a mighty wind
Over, around and all the way in
Breath of Life vibrate my sin
Blow deep into my hollow aching need
Let me cease to pulsate
Allowing You to breathe

Voice of God
Ultimate Beginning
Promise-filled End
Never cease to resonate
Mysteries flow
My mind can never know
But You – alive within
Yes, You know all
So, now I contain You?
How?
This must be the universal question – yes?
But, “How?” Is a human question
Innocent as the dawn
Yes – childlike – open – free
But! Your “Why” is the finish
Because You can!
You delight!
Filling – Breathing – Shining Light
Into the smallest weakest vessel
Bright! Holding weakness inside Your might
Why? How?
There’s only the Now
Now, contains the Who
You – You – I Am!
Present, Now, Forever
Breathe, Speak!

image

Voice of God
My foundation – Staff and Rod
Break in and through
Life-infused gale
Break upon my shores
Loosen the concrete barriers of my mind
Holding captive the song of “Set Free”!
Begin again and afresh!
Oh Beginning Refrain
Speak! And I will be spoken
Rippling Your Image upon the liquid glass of Your soul
See Your Son whole and complete
Despising my shame
Dispensing the sounds of Grace
Clear, pure white hot Sacrifice
Exchanging the souls likeness
Flesh for Spirit
Stars sing and dance this refrain
The Moon reflects this wax and wane
The Kingdom’s Trade
With that which only Your hands have made!

image

Voice of God
A tree offering shade
To the desert traveler – weary
Each step, dehydrated and bleary
Holds Your oasis of Wisdom
Making liquid action of Love
All blistering and bruising made a song
Voice of God – Sing!
Breathe such sweet suffering over me
Let the waters rush to create canyons
Where Your wind has swept them free
Carving waves of Your joy – undiminishible
Wings grow out of stone
To carry me – alighted on Your finger
Like a bird – perched and anchored to Your draw
Up, up, up – beyond the crumbling embers
Of distractions pointing forward and backward
Restlessly desperate to leave the Now
Speak! A Holy Halt!
Time does not exist to You
Instill my boundaries with Your Present!
Fortress my heart in Your hands
Claim me Father!
For I am Yours or I am nothing
Converse with my heart in tones of Forgiveness
Commune my soul in Mercy!
Making all of me Your witness
Your Kingdom come in me
Write Your instruction
Deep and penetrateing
Separating bone from marrow
Yes! Your Wisdom!
But More!
Your power to live it!
These are the drums and bass of Your rhythms
Obedience is a song
A sanctuary – a hiding place
Life pulsates there!
Hold me captive to these shores
Anchor me deep in the abyss of it
Mystery and unknowing
You fully know!
There I will grow
More like Your child instead

image

Voice of God
In the earth and sky
Rock and stone
Air and wind
In my ears and eyes
Heart and mind
Soul and spirit
Show me You and I will cease my striving
Give me all the Sound of You and the sense of Your arriving!
Voice of God
Live in me!

O Lord Your Works!

December 3, 2014 at 3:42 am (Poems, Psalms) (, , , , , , , , )

image

Your Works! Your Works! Your Works O Adonai!
I can not say which awes me more
Your Works in the heavens
Your Works on the earth and land and sea
Which awesome wonder – all beyond telling
But Oh Lord, Your works in me!

Who can say which is more
Miraculous beyond all telling
The sky – light and dark
The meadow and park
The mountainous vistas rising?

Or…

The landscape of my heart
The valley of my will
Or the giant peaks of my dark mind – until…
Bent and broken
Held and loved open
Your Wonders of Life where death fights while hoping
Springs tiny a seed of Strength inside need
And You make resistance run full bore into obedience!
How? How is it possible Lord?
You turn my waters into wine
You feed the million of my offenses with Your bread of mercy and Your fish of grace
You release my fingers from illusionary “riches”
Oh how I cling to them!
Yet the instant I let go, the Richness of Your presence feeds the cattle on a thousand hills
Did I loosen my grip or did Your own hand make them slip?
Find one who can discern the redeeming point of origin
No doubt Father, no doubt it was all You in the pouring in
And pouring out
Limping me. .. now You’re holding
I can run, stand, and walk by myself
But I can only limp with You
Keep me ever in Your marrow parting from bone precision
Wrapped in Your very breath and Word to dig in
Longing ever for Your Son!

Yeshua! Salvation! The House of Forgiveness!
The Richest Man bending down to my poor soul!
Filling! Filling! And opening Your Door to Revelation beyond my ken!
Rescuing with separating protection!
Nailing my self-conscious soul to Your Power!
Prepping the soil of my landscapes to the bounty You shower!
Never needing to know in advanced any hour!
You are always there!

To what can that compare?
I look up…Abba
I look down…Father
To either side Your Spirit – Your Son!
I look for guilt or condemnation…
And Behold! There’s none! None!
Wiped out in a single day!
A day that still ripples the hour of Your Birth, Your death and Your rising!
Following those ripples to the first Breath and Word calling into existence all these eyes see!
Oh Father! There’s another!
My blind eyes see! My deaf ears hear! My embalmed heart understands!
Your Voice – opens eyes and ears and clay incaked hearts!
Truly that is where every miracle starts!

The stars were no challenge!
The Sun was just fun!
The Moon was Your playground!
And You’d just begun!
Then the dust blew with what You knew!
Masterfully woven and spun!
Grace and love gave birth to the need of You!

Oh Lord, Your Works!
Your Works ruin me!
Your Works recreate me!
Every time I look at anything…this is what I see! Your Works
Your Works!
Inside, outside and all around me
All pointing back to You
Working, wondrous Freedom indeed!
O Adonai! Your Works!
Heavenly host continually praise!
And lend me their voice for tonight at this hour.
Oh Lord Your Works!
Oh Lord Your Trustworthiness!
Oh God, You are Power!
Holy, holy, holy is The Lord God Almighty!
Hosanna in the heights!
Hosanna down below!
Tune your trust to Yeshua (Jesus) and watch your vision grow!
