A Slave or Free?

Romans 6:22 – However, now, freed from sin and enslaved to God, you do get the benefit – it consists in being made holy, set apart for God, and its end result is eternal life.

This post is dedicated to Ravi Zachariah – a beloved Brother, teacher, and friend of God. May we honor the Lord he lived for, spoke for, and died for… in so doing, we honor him. We shall see you again soon, dear Ravi… very soon indeed!




I cannot emphasize this enough: we must let go of this world, our best ideas for it and in it, not just what we’d change. That’s easy. We must rather be slaves of Messiah than free “Americans” or citizens of this world. We must allow what God actually defined as freedom to be our reality not what the best of “men” may have misinterpreted what God’s Word says. For in the dying of ourselves daily in Yeshua/Jesus, we become entrenched in the war of sin and death verses righteousness and life. All SPIRITUAL THINGS… none of these are temporal. It is the mind of God to bring an absolute end – destruction – of this world, fallen and decaying from sin. To make the New Earth that can not fall… ever again or decay.

Why? Why do we want to hold on to this life? Don’t say it’s because you want to see ________ (fill in the blank)! Would not the beholding of such be better in the world to come? Do we really believe education will end? That celebrating life will end? That watching people or things grow is exclusive to this world? Did not, the God we say we believe in make this world? Is it not, that His presence is the ONLY thing that makes anything good or beautiful, lovely and innocent, worth working and sacrificing for… have we forgotten it requires HIM for any of these things? So, if in the ending of this world as He has put into action… will not the one He has promised be far more amazing for children to grow up in never knowing sin, for families to unite in, for homes to be built, dreams to come true… and no more a career but a lifetime of discovery, never having to prove ones worth, question one’s ability or longevity again… isn’t this better? I challenge you and myself, place in the fire and let it burn whatever we think would be better here and now. Decide now, what will hasten the coming of the Day of the Lord. Fighting for this world or submitting to its end. It does not mean we stop loving who we love, or that we cease to be a mother or father to our children, or that we stop being agents of righteousness through the power and mind of Yeshua the Messiah here and now. It just means we know… trust… that this is temporary and what is to come is far better – yes, worth dying for. Decide now, we must – how we will turn the cheek, do good to those who persecute us, do double what is asked of us if nessessary… pray for our perceived enemies (human). Ask God now, to begin to form such reactions into your very being… because it’s here, dear fellowsheep. It’s not coming anymore. It’s here. It will get “worse” in the sense of more intense, more often, more of us… but the beginning of this started long ago. People are turning on their fellow humans for not wearing a mask for a virus they’ve never seen! Not the way it’s being mind- bending manipulated into people’s psyche. No one has seen people falling in the street dying of a bubonic plaque. They’ve seen videos of China… seemingly of the present… but they could be pieces of past videos. What have we actually seen with our eyes? What can each of us actually testify that we have witnessed? Do not act upon anything else! Learn what science has done to change what God designed in the human/ animal DNA. It’s important or you won’t understand why getting a vaccine which will make it so you can’t buy or sell is tantamount to changing your ability to choose to be in Gods Image – fully human – and die as such or whatever else the”powers that be” wish to transform humanity into… even if it is the ability to not get sick. Decide now, WHOSE plan we’re on board with, because there will be a day where we won’t be able to choose. The Lord, has been faithful to reveal His Word as can be seen in our reality today. Sadly much has been considered “conspiracy theory”. But not unlike when Yeshua came the first time. Those who knew or thought they did, His Word were looking for a totally different kind of savior. One that saved them in this fallen world and took over without destroying the whole thing… just the “bad guys”. Is this any different today? History repeats itself. Prophecy is fulfilled past, present and future. God is omni-…everything! We must be transformed by the renewing of our minds… and we have the mind of Messiah! He died, rose again and is coming again. We will do as He did. But He won’t leave us alone as we go… the same Spirit that tended Him after 40 days of temptation, was given to us as well. He is not sitting at the right hand of the Father, begging for the earth and its beautiful sunsets as they are now (and they are) to be spared from the coming destruction. Read 2nd Peter 3. It’s all going to go. What is broken here can not be fixed, only broken people, and only if they are broken. Choose, this day, whom we will serve. This is the daily call. It’s done daily, because we’re only capable of one at a time. Only Adonai, is capable of all times, for all things. If you watched the YouTube, it’s been shown plainly in scripture, better than I could. If you have not, you may well want to now, to understand what I’ve just posted.

Scriptures to include: 1 Peter 2:11-17; 2 Timothy 2:15; Ephesians 6:10 – emphasis on the Lord and HIS MIGHT!

1 Peter 3:17-18 – But you, dear friends, since you know this in advance, guard yourselves; so that you will not be led away by the errors of the wicked and fall from your secure position. And keep growing in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Deliverer, Yeshua the Messiah. To Him be the glory, both now and forever! Amen.

Doing is Believing

John 14:21
Whoever has My commands and keeps them is the one who loves Me, and the one who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and reveal Myself to him.

Remember the movie in the picture above? The Master told the student to wax the cars, and was specific how, paint the fence, sand the floor, and so on. Days of all these “chores” in the mind of Daniel was putting off his training to become an expert in karate. Tedious and mundane, hard, sweaty work, and days later irritation and confusion drive the student to challenge the Masters methods. Everyone in the audience had to pull their jaw up off the floor after the Master showed the student how each task had indeed trained without the mindset of fighting. It was brilliant! The student paid very close attention to do all that was asked of him from that point, realizing that even if it seemed irrelevant, he’d learn later, there is no such thing.

It was a cunning and master stroke of writing – that movie. I know Who was behind it. The Master of all, Adonai, the creator of the Universe. This was the purpose of the movie, not the love story, though it was nice (clean, remember those days?), not the picking on and fighting back of teenagers; but the contrast of two teachers and their students, their method and motive, how like mirrors the students of the bad teacher were, and yet unique, still individual Daniel was under the teaching hand of Miyagi. He taught through life, he taught through patience and peace, first to achieve those things in the student, then to practice it in karate.

The quote above in the picture is exactly what God does. There’s a saying; “man says, ‘show me and I’ll trust you,’ God says, ‘trust Me and I’ll show you.’
A true statement! Horizontally (man to man) this is exactly how we should be. Vertically (man to God) trust comes with much earned credit from God. It should be automatic from us, then He shows us, like Miyagi how the obeying of Him has armed us, humbled us, and transformed us into the people He created us to be when we were not yet a physical reality. His commands are written in the Word, but also given into our daily lives (should we ask and listen) thus His voice leads and guides us as it did Yeshua (Jesus) and we become like our Savior. Yet, Yeshua is Yeshua and we are who we are, I’m Lisa, not Yeshua, but like Him in that I listen to and obey the Father. My believing becoming more and deeper with each action taken upon hearing His instruction. Countlessly my jaw is dropped after doing what He said, and impatiently challenging His ways, He shows me what each task taught without me knowing what was being fortified in my muscle and memory with each obedience. Thus I have a living, breathing, relationship with the Master of the Universe! Like the wind, I never know from whence I came or where I’m going at the onset of doing as He says, but I always come away full of assurance that I’m in His will and being grown into something I couldn’t imagine on my best day I could be. His child! A living Word! His love poured out through me! Like Yeshua, but yet never exactly as His perfection in such obeying far exceeds the human reckoning. God doesn’t want a bunch of ‘saviors’, He sent One, and that was and is all that’s needed. He wants children, children to come home to the real Life that He made for them.

What joy it brings to know my trust will never be ill placed in Him! Adventures follow the task of obeying! Jaw dropping moments, where my “floor sanding, fence painting, car washing” duties prove to be far more the object of the desired result than learning kicks and hits!

May the Lord give you many jaw dropping moments as these last days unfold, and may our trust in Him become solid and steady with each leap to obey! Thanking and praising Him with each action, each word, each thought. Glory to God in the Highest!

♡ Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ♡

O Lord, at Joseph’s humble bench
Thy hands did handle saw and plane;
Thy hammer nails did drive and clench,
Avoiding knot and humouring grain.

image

That Thou didst seem, Thou wast indeed,
In sport Thy tools Thou didst not use;
Nor, helping hinds or fishers need,
The labourer’s hire, too nice, refuse.

Lord, might I be but as a saw,
A plane, a chisel, in Thy hand!
No, Lord! I take it back in awe,
Such prayer for me is far too grand.

image

I pray, O Master, let me lie,
As on Thy bench the favored wood;
Thy saw, Thy plane, Thy chisel ply,
And work me into something good.

image

No, no; ambition, Holy-high,
Urges for more than both to pray:
Come in, O Gracious Force, I cry –
Or workmen, share my shed of clay.

Then I, at bench, or desk, or oar,
With knife or needle, voice or pen,
As Thou in Nazareth of yore,
Shall do the Father’s will again.

image

This fashioning a workmen rare,
O Master, this shall be Thy fee,
Home to Thy Father Thou shalt bear
Another child made like Thee.

Firstborn of the Creating Voice!
Ministering of God’s Spirit, who was sent
Waiting upon Him first, what time He went
Moving about the tumultuous noise of each unpiloted element
Upon the face of the void formless deep!
Thou who did come unbodied and alone
Ere yet the sun was set his rule to keep,
Or ever the moon shone,
Or e’er the wandering star-flocks forth were driven!
Thou garment of the Invisible,whose skirt sweeps, glory-giving, over earth and heaven!
Thou comforter, be with me as Thou wert when first I longed for words, to be
A radiant garment for my thought, like Thee!

George MacDonald – Enlighten Us, O Father of Lights – first stanza
