Awake! – Part 21/b – Timing is Everything

July 21, 2017 at 1:36 am (WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , , )

How do you think you did on the test? Did you hear from Adonai? Was His voice painting the final analysis? If so, the test was passed. 

We live in a world right now, where there’s the “Truthers”, “fake news”, conspiracy theorist, real reporters, paid actors, and the list goes on. Amy Grant once wrote a song; “Ya gotta know, who to, and not to, listen to”. I remember it was one of my faves. I was in 7th grade when it came out. 

It’s not so much why God placed inside me this calling card, as how and when. From the time as far back as I can remember, He has sent one thing after another to confirm He speaks directly to His children! The whole Word of God confirms it, but no book does quite like John. As you read, underline every time God spoke/speaks and His initiation to communicate. Your Bible will quickly be full of underlining! Then count how many times the phrase “I speak only what God/My Father tells me to say – do only what He tells me to do” 

I was raised in the non denominational Christian church. With few exceptions, every single one of them taught that God doesn’t speak directly to His People! Years later I understood it is pure deceitful fear that has been behind this in the church. What did the enemy say in the garden?

“Did God really say….?” 

That same enemy is still planting that same seed in the garden of God’s Vineyard. Hence the drowsiness encompassing His sheep. For today, this time, the buck must absolutely stop at what He says for our bearings to be correct where He has us, how and when. There are two ways we can stand firm in this:

  1. His Word, the Bible
  2. His Voice

That’s it. There is too much deception, too many people thinking they have the answers, too many people who think they can not be deceived, too many people afraid to hear from the Truth! (Remember…He’s a person, God – Yeshua/Jesus). 

Here are two quotes from God, from the book of Jeremiah. The entire 51st chapter is crucial to our lives today. 

Jeremiah 51:39; 57

When they are hot with desire, I will prepare them a drink, I will make them so drunk they will have convulsions, sleep forever and NEVER wake up, says Adonai. 

I will intoxicated her leaders and sages, her governors, deputies and warriors. They will sleep forever and NEVER wake up. Says the King, whose Name is Adonai-Tzva’ot. (Lord of Angel Armies)  

Let’s face it, when God spoke, quite often, it was plain just hard to hear. Not hard as in too low in frequency, but hard as in difficult to accept. I believe the disciples themselves can be quoted as saying that very thing about Yeshua’s teaching. Yet, let those verses sink in, time is going to run out, come to an end. Time ran out for Pharaoh, Goliath, Samson, Jericho, Sodom and Gomorrah, Haman, Pilate and the “church” in Yeshua’s time. The list goes on. Those in Israel at the time of Jeremiah 52, indeed were put to sleep and Never Woke up. It’s so important to never think we have some “spiritual nodoze” that makes us immune to falling asleep – aka: being deceived. Read in the Book of John how Yeshua emphasises hearing Him, listening to Him and staying in union with Him. And not being decieved! 

Now is not the time to be afraid of people’s reactions to us, either quoting the Word of God or telling them what He says to tell them! 

And now is definitively not the time to be afraid to hear Him! For we can “take this to the bank”, if we do not, right now, hear Him over every other voice shouting at us from every direction, we will fall asleep and waking up will not be a pleasant experience. 

How are the many ways the enemy is saying “Did God really…?” to you right now? Let me rephrase his wording as can disguise the same phrase. 

Why am I here? What am I doing? When will I be given a mission or ministry? Where do I matter?

The key to knowing why these questions are from the pit of hell instead of “nice soul searching Christian thinking” is because the emphasis is on the one letter word in each question. I. Nothing is accidental, God is behind everything about our lives. Where we are, how we are effecting others, and He may not choose to show us exactly how impactful He is in us, right now. 

Are you bearing fruit to bring Him glory? Or hiding behind leaves that reveal no fruit can be found? Hiding is about us, bearing fruit will always hallmark that we are about Him! I have yet to meet anyone truly doing the work of the Kingdom that can see exactly how and when God is using them at all times. Or even most the time. People who brag about how God is using them are not liars, but I guarantee they are blind in some very important spots. 

When King David thought he had it all together, was settling down into the kingdom God had given him. He took a walk on a roof and became a murderer and adulterer in the space of about 5 seconds. Remember, it starts in the heart, the mind, where only God can interrupt one efficiently and effectively. 

Remember, Peter was warned exactly how he’d deny Yeshua, and he still did it. It wasn’t the power of suggestion, it was prophesy. Yeshua’s timing in exactly when and how He warned Peter and then made the cock crow that third time was to His glory not Peter’s. It did indeed produce fruit for the Kingdom of God. Yet Peter will likely tell you he had not a clue how. David too. Every one of us gets stuck on ourselves at least a dozen times a day. It’s hard not to trip over something that stays with you everywhere you go. 

Remember, it’s not why, God parted the Red Sea, it’s how and when. Timing! It’s not why, Yeshua walked on water, healed the sick, lame and blind, raised the dead and died and rose again, it’s how and when! The why is obvious, God wanted to do it, it got done. God wants the evil to end, but not the lives of His created precious children. The end will get done, and every chance will be exhausted to bring His children into His Kingdom. Both are happening, right now, at the same time! 

Are you awake? Can you hear Him telling you? Remember Yeshua’s Words, let them ring in your ears…

He who has ears, let him hear…”  

If the only way to hear God is in reading His Word, He would have said “He who has eyes, let them read.” God would not have sent prophets or Yeshua to speak. The Torah, would have been enough, Yeshua would not have been needed. I could go on and on…but I pray you get the “picture”. The Word of God is anointed, alive and active. Just like it says. Yet relationship with God, is personal, talking, walking, living, responding, and knowing.   

If anything less than relationship was what God is after, He would have gave us a book, like a dead school book of rules and called it a day. Pun intended. 

If God’s timing is everything, and He didn’t say; “Lisa go to your neighbor and invite her to dinner.”  in the Bible, how then could I obey? I can verify in the Word, that the Voice I heard was God’s, but the Bible still won’t personally reach down on my block with the specific people He placed in my path and tell me what to do and say that applies to their life for His glory. It will confirm and reinforce the Living God whose Voice goes out from everlasting to everlasting; written as His Voice directed it to be written. I’m in no way understating the validity and power of the Word of God. No, indeed, that very Word is the same person as the Truth, Yeshua the Messiah; and He said…

John 10:3-4

This is the one the Gatekeeper admits, and the Sheep hear His voice. He calls His own sheep, each one by name, and leads them out. After taking out all that are His own, He goes on ahead of them, and the Sheep follow Him because they recognize His voice.   

John 10:16

Also I have other sheep which are not from this pen; I need to bring them, and they will hear My Voice; and there will be one flock, One Shepherd.  

John 10:27

My sheep hear My Voice, I recognize them, they follow Me…  

✡ May the grace and peace that comes from hearing and knowing Yeshua the Messiah be with you. Now and forever more. ✡

A Light on the Other Side

January 9, 2013 at 2:40 am (Mile Stones) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

~~ A glimpse into my quiet time ~~

What keeps God at the back door?

Where one one can enter into the front of the house, and upon entering find the whole home decked out in the “things of God”; but upon staying for a while one gets the sense that He has never been there.

How can this be??

As one gathers up the flat things of Your treasure and builds up a shrine but still keeps You out? Can eyes be so drawn to Your Light, gather You in like a fire-fly in a jar?

“Ahh-ha at last I’ve caught a little bit of You, O Divine! I shall make this enough for me!”

Then builds on what little they find – having been blinded by a more sinister lie; that just a little is all there is to find.

How can this be??

Oh, the hesitation to follow Your Son into a new word being written upon our hearts! Into the heart of ‘Hallelujah’!

Believing??

I hear Your voice…
“Even the demons believe…”
If one can look up at the sky and call it blue; one is capable of believing in You!
But! Capture the sky and bring it down…collectively liquid – and walk upon the fluid of belief!
The stars twinkle a little brighter at the invitation!!

And all in opposition to You shrieks and twist that one just one of “those dirt-born, God-breathed, weak creatures” may alight and Obey! (I hear them)
“Not even the Bible guarantees a safe crossing!” They scream.
“See, Peter begin?! And fail!!” They accuse.

But its a distraction!!! For there is a possibility that someone may keep their eyes on Yeshua (Jesus) and SEE! Fixed on Your Beloved and HEAR!
“The laws of Creation – obey Me!”

And Lo! The first thing Peter did as the water began to encompass him; was cry out to You! You who divided waters from waters, You who stood before him upon the obedient fluids beneath Your feet! This was Peter’s success! We can not make the wind and waves obey us – but we have the Ears of the One who can!!!

O Lord, I have thrown out all the decor! Now I ask only for Your Son – the Water-Walker, the World-Maker, the Star-Namer, the Complete-Healer and the All that is Possible!!!
Help me to see!
“Open Your servants eyes, Lord!” This Elisha prayed!
Hear his prayer again O God, stretching through time to today!
Open my eyes, my ears, my mouth as unto Your perfect will!
I ask and know You are answering!For with You and with me, only Your presence will do!!

~ ~ ~     ~ ~ ~      ~ ~ ~     ~ ~ ~

Genesis 1:6-7
God said, “Let there be a dome in the middle of the water; let it divide the water from the water.” God made the dome and divided the water under the dome from the water above the dome; that is how it was,

2 Kings 6:17
Elisha prayed, “Adonai, I ask You to open his eyes, so that he can see.” Then Adonai opened the young man’s eyes, and he saw: there before him, all around Elisha, the mountain was covered with horses and fiery chariots.

Matthew 13:13-17 (Yeshua speaking)
Here is why I speak to them in parables: they look without seeing and listen without hearing or understanding. That is, in them is fulfilled the prophesy of Yesha’yahu (Isaiah) which says,
‘You will keep on hearing but never understand, and keep on seeing but never perceive, because the heart of this people has become dull – with their ears they barely hear, and their eyes they have closed, so as not to see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their heart, and do t’shuvah (turning), so that I could heal them.’ (Isaiah 6:9-10)
But you, how blessed are your eyes, because they see, and your ears, because they hear! Yes indeed! I tell you that many a prophet and many a tzaddik (righteous one) longed to see the things you are seeing but did not see them, and hear the things you are hearing but did not hear them.

Matthew 14:25-33
Around four o’clock in the morning, He came toward them, walking on the lake! When the talmidim (disciples) saw Him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “Its a ghost!” they said and screamed with fear. But at once Yeshua spoke to them. “Courage,” He said, “it is I. Stop being afraid.” Then Kefa (Peter) called to Him, “Lord, if it is really You, tell me to come to You on the water.” “Come!” He said. So Kefa (Peter) got out of the boat and walked on the water toward Yeshua. But when he saw the wind, he became afraid; and as he began to sink, he yelled, “Lord! Save me!” Yeshua immediately stretched out His hand, took hold of him, and said to him, “Such little trust! Why did you doubt?” As they went up into the boat, the wind ceased. The men in the boat fell down before Him and exclaimed, “You really are God’s Son!”

Luke 18:27 (Yeshua speaking)
He said, “What is impossible humanly is possible with God.”

James 2:19
You believe that “God is one”? Good for you! The demons believe it too – the thought makes them shudder with fear!

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤

Deeper into the Son

November 6, 2012 at 2:45 am (Poems) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

image

Silent sway, my mind must stay
Aloft on Your great Fountain
Awakened deep within my soul
I climb, but a wispy mountain

A Word, a Thought
You count them not
As if accumulation completes
What Your spoken Word repeats

A gate wide open
A Holy Human Token
Aloud an “Abba Father”
What credit to me?
None can I see

A redirected periphial skew
A sight given beyond my view
Hold me there! In the sight of You!
Son of every beholding!

Drops of blood, clearly mark
The way to which, this heart must go
Walking, walking – no surface impeding
Water flows, from His eyes, His side, to cushion His feet
Tears clean what fresh water doesn’t dare
Each rung, You hang, and hold me fair

No looking down! A mighty fall
Back to my own perceiving
Afloat on You, and the very air You’re breathing
Circumsized eyes can see where You are leading

Embraced in a language reserved
For a people called and preserved
Bread is blessed and broken
And fed to a multitude of sins

Love is the leaven of heaven
It rises the road to its offering
Capsizing the enemies subtle lie
“Did He really say you will die?”
Love whispered back threw the holes in His hands
“Life is here!”

Deeper into the Son I dive
Following, following I feel for those holes
Doubt is not the power, held within Your presence, only confirmation
Real, more real than even the surface I ken to hold me up

Deeper into the Son
Deeper into Your temple
Better is one day buried in You
Than a million cast aside from my Home
All rising again and again!

“Love Me, Follow”…His voice is not hollow
Full, over-flowing, full of living rebirth!
Harken me onward
Mighty Carpenter, continue to build
This narrow path stretching
From me to You

Deeper into the Son!
Engraved with Obedience
Carved and shaped by Trust
Molded and made for Worship
Oh!! What He makes of dust!

Deeper into the Son
I go, I run, I hide, I seek
Yet He is
He is!
The Way, the Truth, the Life
He calls and His own – Come!
Deeper, deeper into the Son!

Unhiding

September 14, 2012 at 12:49 pm (Thoughts to Ponder) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

image

We are all bound up in the cross and the tomb, until our “unhiding” brings us to the heart of Yeshua (Jesus) and His Father

Then we are no longer bound to the cross or the tomb, but ever ALIVE!
Never to be touched again by the torture of not knowing the Heart of Salvation
Ever alive in Him, whose heart never dies
Never again prone to hiding – only Discovery!

September 2012

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
