Pivotal Questions: #2

Matthew 24:21-25

For there will be trouble then worse than there has ever been from the beginning of the world until now, and there will be nothing like it again! Indeed, if the length of this time had not been limited, no one would survive; but for the sake of those who have been chosen, it’s length will be limited. At that time, if someone says to you, ‘Look! Here’s the Messiah!’ or, ‘There He is!’ don’t believe him. For there will appear false messiahs and false prophets performing great miracles – amazing things! – so as to fool even the chosen, if possible. There! I have told you in advance!

PQ #2: Can you be fooled?

The language Yeshua (Jesus) is using in this passage is strong and completely solid. Notice the past tense of its phrasing, even wording ( ‘had’ instead of ‘is not’). ‘Will be’… not even something so illusive as ‘could be’ or ‘pray that there won’t be’. Which in verse 20 He does phrase a ‘pray that…’ which suggest that our prayers could change some sense of timing here. He’s direct, affirmative and speaks as One who has and is seeing exactly what He’s talking about (past, present, and future). He talks about the trickery in terms of ‘amazing’! God’s Son says it will be amazing. That’s not a little swayed… that’s pretty astounding!

Now let’s talk about the enemy of God. He repeats and only can attempt to do what God has already done. He can’t invent something new. Adonai and Yeshua are big on unity. They talk about it from the beginning to the end. A oneness, of sorts is always in view of God’s ways. So the enemy is repeating…again. Global, One World, United, Internet, World Wide Web… company or corporation names: UNIsef, UNITED Nations, and the favorite… anything with the word UNION.

There’s a reality we must accept. WE are all included in Yeshua’s statement – ‘fool even the chosen‘. If you are chosen you CAN be fooled. Think about that. Chosen is also definitive. He’s not talking about those ‘on the fence’ or deceived already. He’s talking about His kids that walk and talk with Him daily, study their Word, seek His will, desire to please Him and live a life of His character. Those who have the Spirit that has rebirthed them. Those who are SAVED.

Below is a link to a YouTube that will have a link to a new release movie now available. If you want to see how it could be possible as Yeshua put it… watch these. People don’t get deceived because they are stupid, ignorant or naive. We all have moments of these, saved or not. Yeshua said the Truth would set you free. He wasn’t just talking about what’s contained between the binding of the Bible. The Bible doesn’t talk about culture as we know it today. It uses imagery because it is timeless. So those who seek the Truth will know it… just like He promised.

For those who raise the argument: “But if you’re saved you can’t be deceived!” I offer this scripture and beg you to find a way to interpret it in such a way that would do anything but deny what the passage is saying.

2 Peter 2:19-22

They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption; for a person is slave to whatever has defeated him. Indeed, if they have once escaped the pollutions of the world through knowing our Lord and Deliverer, Yeshua the Messiah, and then have again become entangled and defeated by them, their latter condition has become worse than their former. It would have been better for them not to have known the Way of righteousness than, fully knowing, to turn from the Holy Command delivered to them. What has happened accords with the true proverb, “A dog returns to its own vomit.”

Our “vomit” if you will is, our thinking we know better, and live in a state of anything other than reliance on God. For further clarification. Messiah means annointed/consecrated – false means vain (because to be vain one must be self absorbed. Satan’s origin of falling), lie, deceptive. So a false messiah is a deceptive/vain/lying one who has been annointed/consecrated to be vain/deceptive. Yeshua means salvation His anointing is to save, lead to the Father, consecrated to the Truth. A prophet is one who speaks or sings by inspiration from a spirit. A false prophet therefore is one who speaks or sings under the influence of a deceptive/vain spirit. It is the ultimate goal of Satan to deceive… trick… cause one to be fooled. Don’t be fooled into thinking he’ll use Yeshua’s name to point to false messiahs. He’ll point to anything that seems like it could “save” us. (Time, money, energy, health, sanity, love [false of course]). Satan ‘annoints’ his own. He’s just trying to be God by doing so. Nothing new, his mantra is: “anything You (Adonai) can do, I can do better.” He’s always saying this to Adonai…

Satan’s the author of “seems like” for anything good. If it seems like a good thing… question it. Don’t use your brain to come to a conclusion. Go to Adonai/Yeshua and ask Him… is this YOUR good. Its never, ever, how things ‘seem’ to us that matters, but what it actually is to Adonai. What He thinks is our bottom line. Since Adonai can only do good… He is the only One who knows when something is not. He sent His Spirit to lead us into all Truth… but He will never ever violate our choice to follow what we find – a lie or the Truth. He can make us see, but He won’t make us act on what He’s revealing. He asks us to because He loves us, but forcing is not love. He convicts, never condemns. Convincing only ever comes from acting on the Truth He reveals. If we want convincing before trusting action, we’ll be sorry. This is what Yeshua condemned in those who need ‘signs and wonders’. The enemy of God therefore will wonder and awe first, then demand allegiance. But he’ll rarely have to demand as our own desires take over. What entices you that seems innocent? What blows your mind in the world today that seems good? There are certain things we all can name, and some of which would appear on all our list. I’m typing on one right now. We must guard our hearts with ALL diligence! Now more than ever… may God be with you.

✡ Now, to the One who can keep you from falling and set you without defect and full of joy in the presence of His Sh’khinah (Divine Presence) – to God alone, our Deliverer, through Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord – be glory, majesty, power and authority before all time, now and forever. Amen. ✡

Awake! – Part 12 – Freedom of Choice

May 6, 2017 at 3:56 am (WSGD Newes) (, , , , )

1 Chronicles 4: 10

Jabez called on the God of Israel: “Please bless me by enlarging my territory. May Your Hand be with me! Keep me from harm, so that it will not cause me pain.” God granted his request.   

God promised us the whole earth! He made the whole planet for us! Now take the perspective that the enemy has slowly reduced us to. Look at the map of Israel, The one with the largest borders, where God promised the nation. This tiny slice of land is roughly 1/100000th of the whole earth! Now I’m not saying what God promised Israel is insignificant, but look at Jabez’s prayer, God granted his request! Why? Because Jabez saw that God offers far more than we can ask for or imagine, He wanted all God has to offer! Don’t you?

For a moment, now, let’s look at the miracle of God giving us freedom of choice. To sum this up, attacking every question that can arise from this fact – God gave us freedom of choice because:

  • He wanted us to choose Him, knowing all the other choices. Or not, choose Him.
  • He thinks it’s far more important to have us, than to start over, taking all the other choices away, which would eliminate human kind made in His Image. He has no plan B, and will settle for nothing less than His original plan, us – humans and Him as a family He desired, with those of His host in heaven.  

This is why freedom of choice is such an amazing thing given to us by God! It involves letting us be able to choose very evil and awful things – yes – but also the best He has to offer! Which brings me to my next point. 

In order for us to have access to all God has to offer us, we must be rid of anything and everything that would place God’s all and put it in a container. Labels are good for things, not people. When we go to the store, labels help us define one thing from another. When we walk through life, labels on people close the doors to what God is doing and will do. We are central to God’s plan, this is why Yeshua took the label making question: “who is my neighbor?” and turned it on its head. Humans are our neighbor! Every shape, size, color, nation! There is only one ‘label’ for *God’s children and I just said *it. Hence why we are instructed by Yeshua to love our human ‘enemies’. To do good to those who hurt us. Not to be confused with His enemies! Today’s world puts such labels on people’s. 

Can you honestly say that all that can be found throughout history about the label “Christian” is what you want to limit your walk with God – THE MESSIAH (which means Christ, where the term Christian came from) to?

Most labels start out well meaning, AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) for example: this was a spiritual revival, started by men of God to reach a certain sector of people, trapped by the enemy of God by the poison of alcohol. The principles it was founded on were/are straight from God’s Word, the intent for which God inspired it was freedom. Yet now, it hardly resembles what it started out like. Man was led astray by the enemy of God who, as He does everything God makes originally, twist it by the causing doubt in/of God. So now, just chose your higher power, door nob, teddy bear, flower, anything, you’ll get sober! It’s sickening! Why would any of these things require accountability of action, they are inanimate objects! Likewise, being called a Christian used to stand for nothing but a follower of Christ, but throughout history, ‘Christians’ have followed the anti-Christ doing nothing that resembles Yeshua whatsoever! So when we choose – we best just choose God, the God of the Bible, of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, we can place many other names from that Word from which He has named Himself, but anything other than this, we stand to limit what we can know of Him, do because of Him and claim that He said is ours! We must understand that freedom of choice, does not mean we should make up our own choices. If we claim to be a child of God, we best reconsider any label we have assigned ourselves with. Catholic, Luthern, Baptist, evangelical, Calvinism, Republican, Constitutionalist, Democrat, conservative, traditionalist and the list goes on. Given a true study into any of these labels will prove to show where they all inevitably vere from the Truth the whole Truth and nothing but the Truth as defined by God. The enemy invades and has access to do so with anything man decides they can “hang their hat on” as a labeled sect of people. Have you ever wondered why God hated censuses? Is makes a number out of a person, the enemy of God loves to count his sheep, Hitler labeled his prisoners this way. God doesn’t need to count, He makes them part of who He IS! You and I are special, unique and wonderful, just because He made us. This takes the value of any label you or I could attach to our value and throws it into the pit of hell!

The saying: “the road to hell is paved with good intentions” is so true. These ‘good intentions’ are the stuff made up of what man calls good. The perspective must change for something to truly be good. That perspective must be God’s! Since we know our ways are not like His, our thoughts, not like His, it stands as true logic that before we call something good or innocent we might check in with Him first. Good and bad are labels too! We say, “that person is a good person. Or bad person.” Achhhem – we may want to ask Adonai about that! Most especially are we in danger if we label ourselves in such a way! Good according to God is functional. Bad is dysfunctional. This changes everything when taken from His perspective, and when we consult Him, we find our knowledge expands even more in definition making and it’s dangers. Knowledge, the quest for knowledge alone is the enemy of God’s number one temptation. God’s knowledge leads us to Himself, which gives growth to humility, not pride or confidence in ourselves. Labels classify so we can decide who we think is worthy of our prayers, attention, time, effort, etc. It’s best to side with God, and leave the fighting up to Him as to who needs to be ‘rearranged’ or not. He gives us judgement, the ability to assess and act on something, for our actions and thoughts alone! Not for everyone or anyone else. We may be told to steer clear of someone by God, but that gives no permission to judge them. We just obey, pray for them, love them as best as He directs us from a distance. 

I will wrap this up with a list of scriptures, that hopefully will be seen from a whole new perspective given what has been said so far. Then, as always, study, and consult Adonai for anything of value to be gained from this post. I’m no “authority”, to say I’m inspired is only to speak to my passion for Yeshua. But not to say, these words are equal to the Inspired Word of God. I’m His child, I claim this as the gift He has made available to all. I’m unashamed to be called a follower of Yeshua the Messiah. I stumble and lose my balance in my learning to walk with Him, as anyone else. Yet, He covers my every word, move and being with His blood! What an honor the choosing of Him is! It’s so much easier to stay awake, be awake, knowing the value and limitlessness that God gives with choice. 

Deuteronomy 28:9-14; 30:15,19

Adonai will establish you as a people separated out for Himself, as He has sworn to you – if you will observe the mitzvah (commands/instructions) of Adonai your God and follow His Ways. Then all the peoples on earth will see that Adonai’s Name, His presence, is with you; so that they will be afraid of you. 

Adonai will give you great abundance of good things – of the fruit of your body, the fruit of your livestock and the fruit of your land in the land Adonai swore to your ancestors to give you. Adonai will open for you His good treasure, the sky, to give your land it’s rain at the right seasons and to bless everything you undertake. You will lend to many nations and not borrow; Adonai will make you the head and not the tail; and you will be only above, never below – if you listen to, observe and obey the mitzvot of Adonai your God and not turn away from any of the words I am ordering you today, neither to the right or the left, to follow after other gods and serve them. 

Look! I am presenting you today with, on the one hand, life and good; and on the other, death and evil

I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have presented you with life and death the blessing and the curse. Therefore, choose life, so that you will live, you and your descendants, loving Adonai your God, paying attention to what He says and clinging to Him – for that is the purpose to your life!   

Isaiah 54:5

For your husband is your Maker, Adonai-Tzva’ot is His Name. The Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer. He will be called the God of all the earth.   

Micah 6:8

Human being, you have already been told what is good, what Adonai demands of you – no more than to act justly, love grace, and walk in purity with your God. 

Malachi 3:10

Bring the whole tenth into the storehouse, so that there will be food in My house, and put Me to the test, says Adonai-Tzva’ot. See if I won’t open for you the floodgates of heaven and pour out for you blessing far beyond your needs.   

Psalms 19:7; 103:13

The Torah of Adonai is perfect, restoring the inner person. The Instruction of Adonai is sure, making wise the thoughtless. 

Just as a father has compassion on his children, Adonai has compassion on those who fear Him.  

Proverbs 10:22; 21:1

The blessings of Adonai is what makes people rich, and He doesn’t mix sorrow with it. 

The kings heart in Adonai’s hand is like streams of water – He directs it wherever He pleases.  

I Chronicles 16:11

Seek Adonai and His strength; always seek His presence.   

Matthew 5:3-10 

How blessed are the poor in spirit! For the Kingdom of heaven is theirs. How blessed are those who mourn! For they will be comforted. How blessed are the meek! For they will inherit the Land! How blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness! For they will be filled. How blessed are those who show mercy! For they will be shown mercy. How blessed are the pure in heart! For they will see God. How blessed are those who make peace! For they will be called the sons of God. How blessed are those who are persecuted because they pursue righteousness! For the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs!  

John 17:26

I made Your Name known to them, and I will continue to make it known; so that the love with which You have loved Me may be in them, and I Myself may be united with them.  

Acts 17:26-28

From one man He made every nation living in the entire surface of the earth, and He fixed the limits of their territories and periods when they would flourish. God did this so that people would look for Him and perhaps reach out and find Him although in fact, He is not far from each of us, for in Him we live and move and exist. Indeed, as some of the poets among you have said, “We are actually His children.”  

Romans 8:33-39

So who will bring a charge against God’s chosen people? Certainly not God  – He is the One who causes them to be considered righteous! Who punishes them? Certainly not the Messiah Yeshua, who died and – more than that – has been raised, is at the right hand of God and is actually pleading on our behalf! Who will separate us from the love of the Messiah? Trouble? Hardship? Persecution? Hunger? Poverty? Danger? War? As the Tanakh puts it, ” For Your sake we are being put to death all day long, we are considered to be sheep to be slaughtered.” No, in all these things we are superconguerors, through the One who has loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor other heavenly rulers, neither what exists nor what is coming, neither powers above nor powers below, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God which comes to us through the Messiah Yeshua, our Lord.   

Ephesians 1:3; 3:20

Praised be Adonai, Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, who in the Messiah has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in heaven.   

Now to Him who by His power working in us is able to do far beyond anything we can ask or imagine, to Him be the glory in the Messianic Community and in the Messiah Yeshua from generation to generation forever. Amen.  

✡ May the grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah be yours in full measure ✡
