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

A Slave or Free?

May 31, 2020 at 5:20 am (Remodeling the Mind, Thoughts to Ponder, WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

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.

Darkness Highlights Hope

March 30, 2018 at 11:37 pm (Remodeling the Mind, Thoughts to Ponder, WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , )

Hebrews 10:23

Let us continue holding fast to the hope we acknowledge, without wavering; for the One who made the Promise is trustworthy.  

With each passing day, my heart cries out for Home. Whether it’s because of my own hurts and sufferings or watching loved ones hurt and suffer. Watching the world in heavy labor. One would have to be lethargic to just be happily going about their life as if the air isn’t fairly cracking with spiritual energy that snaps it’s fingers by an ear and it rings for hours. 

Passover…a very special festival. One that Yeshua (Jesus), Himself, became! The church sleeps in the Easter Bunnies nest, making merry and turning the knobs to appropriately sober for the death and resurrection of their Savior. Yet, Yeshua didn’t say celebrate my death and resurrection. No, it was Passover He was observing, as commanded by God, when He said “Do this in remembrance of Me”. Not Easter, not Resurrection day. Why do we change things? 

I’m heavy with the disturbance it causes to ask such questions. So simple, yet uncomfortable. Why? The same Bible I read, is the same most my brethren read. Why is the fact that Yeshua is a Jew/Hebrew, who followed the Hebrew ways that God instructed from the beginning, why is this so full of controversy? I know more people willing to go blind over a neighbors skin color, sexual orientation….yada yada…but everyone must turn the Savior into their own personal preference for safety? I’m unsure what others call that, but in my book, if someone wants to paint me other than I am in order to “like” me, they really have no interest in me. From my 47 years of experience, 90% of those on earth feel the same way. So why do we make the Savior – God, different than He is and call it loving and serving Him? 

Let’s look at Passover, put in ‘christianeese’. God commanded the festival to be observed in perpetuity. They were to bring in a young male Lamb, and kill it on the third day. Why command them to bring the Lamb inside before they killed it? It’s important for the life you get out of a life to mean something to you. Ask any farmer and they’ll tell you, they keep their distance from their “food animals”. In other words, they don’t get brought inside. 

Then God commanded that they eat the entire lamb, nothing was to be “left over”. An odd command? Not if you think like a Hebrew. To eat something completely is to accept the WHOLE offering. Leaving nothing out, it becomes a part of you, living on in you. You then take this offering/sacrifice with you always in your spirit. Humility. Thankfulness. It marks you on the inside. When you bond with a young lamb and then eat it entirely, it changes you. 

Everyone focuses on the lambs blood on the door post. The outside. I can count on one hand and have fingers left over, how many times I’ve heard a sermon about the topic above, the inside stuff. As always, humans focus on the outside. Not to negate the importance of that blood, it’s what the spirit of death looked for to ‘pass over’ the house – spare it.

Yet here we come to Yeshua, the Passover Lamb Himself. If our hearts and minds are not covered in His blood, the same thing happens to us. God makes physical everything He aims to hammer in spiritually. Which is why He commanded the perpetual observance of this festival. He knew we needed physical connections to Him. If you have never experienced a real Messianic Passover sedar you are missing out! It is so full of meaning upon meaning that the perpetual need to observe it is absolutely needed! 

The darkness is closing in dear fellow-sheep. The hour draws near. The temptation is to thank God He’s coming soon, or beg Him to so that our world can be made right. But it’s HIS world, He’s correcting, not ours. Every minute and hour, day and week, week and month, month and year was planned very careful by Adonai to bring Egypt about…the whole Israeli freedom movement…Moses story….

Meaning upon meaning was what He built the mechanism that drove the time wheels forward to that first Passover, the same to the one Yeshua became. The same to this one. Are you full on the riches of it all? You can be. We all can be…like Yeshua…having consumed every part of Him, leaving nothing out…full of His Likeness. Passed over by death again and again…

It’s then that we understand this present darkness illuminates the Hope, it doesn’t darken it. 

Today is the first day of Passover. Follow Yeshua, Jesus…let Him show you from the beginning what it means. Why it is commanded of us to observe. It’s not a jewish thing. It’s a God thing. It’s His thing. It’s WHO He is!

✡ May the grace and peace of Yeshua the Messiah be with you…always…He comes soon!✡

The Fall into Self Absorption 

December 30, 2017 at 2:41 pm (WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

In Hebrew, the phrase ‘the eyes of both of them were opened’ can be correctly interpreted in our English comprehension today as:

‘Then they became aware of themselves.’

Before this pivotal moment awareness of one’s self was non-existent. That is phenomenal! Notice closely how the second half of this verse confirms this. 

So they sewed fig leaves together to make themselves loincloths.’ 

First of all fig leaf was a ridiculous choice of covering. Neither hardy nor even comfy. Later in verse 21, God makes them fitting cloths to accommodate their new self aware self. Sturdy and comfortable. Yet it cost an innocent life. Self absorption always cost a life! Secondly, they had never before this moment even thought to ‘make something for themselves’. It simply wasn’t needed, desired, or known; this idea of making something for oneself or of one’s self. They did die in that moment. Not from our human perspective after the fall. Death means one ceases to exist, physically present to touch and be. Yet to Adonai, the death was that now we had the capacity to live like we were the most important thing to consider. True life has no need to consider itself. This is why Yeshua was able to say so simply: “Do not consider/worry about what you will eat or what you will wear.”  Really what He was saying was ‘don’t think about yourself.’ Self absorption kills life. Envy, jealousy, hatred, rage, greed; these things killed Yeshua, these things killed many and still do. These things are prime examples of how everything around one becomes all about them. Worry grows where contentment was planted. Considering oneself becomes the cancer, all of humanity was infected by it. There’s no scripture that says, think about yourself, not one. In every scripture that refers to a personal inventory, it’s God who is the one considering us, cleansing us, making us new. We are told to consider our actions, namely how they will – first of all reflect and effect Adonai, –  secondly how they will effect others. How they effect us is determined by the result of Adonai and others coming before or after one own self. Most of us know it’s usually ugly if it’s after.

Let’s fast forward to the next pivotal moment. Where Yeshua (Jesus) points out the key to following Him.  

John 15:9-14

Just as My Father has loved Me, I too have loved you; so stay in My love. If you keep My commands, you will stay in My love – just as I have kept My Father’s commands and stay in His love. I have said this so that My joy may be in you, and your joy be complete. This is My command: that you keep on loving each other just as I have loved you. No one has greater love than a person who lays down his life for his friends. You are My friends, if you do what I command you.   

I say somewhat loosely that this is a pivotal moment. On one hand every Word that came from Yeshua’s lips was pivotal. Yet here we see Him adress the first pivotal moment in the beginning where self absorption took hold. No, He doesn’t mention Genesis 3. Not like we in our reference minded ways tend to do. From the Hebraic mind that moment was never needed to be recalled only on occasion. That moment was the focus of all misdeeds in the whole of history. It was never forgotten, always in the mind of those who sought after and followed the One True God. Yeshua spoke from history at every point in the present for the future. He covered every aspect of time in every Word He spoke. He is, was, and always will be infinite! Our minds do not naturally process this way. It requires the Holy Spirit to even begin to. Hence why so often Yeshua said, “He who has ears let him hear.” In essence He was anointing each soul at the moment to be opened, much like the eyes were opened at the fruit-fall but in reverse. To become more aware of one’s self will never be the goal of God’s Kingdom. Let your communion with God be where you get your revelation time for your own self – from His eyes only, who we are, what needs changed – there is no condemnation but more importantly – there’s no focus on one’s self.  Self help is evil as there is no such thing. We could no more help ourselves than we can dance and the rain pours. If man kind wants to be ‘bettered’, to improve upon what they are in and of themselves, it will take God alone to conceive a new perception in the heart and mind of us all. For only in Him can our love become true love, our kindness true kindness, selfless and unaccounting. 

I’ve known only a few people whom I would consider having been given the gift of love. It’s as natural as breathing for them to drop anything for someone without thinking of inconvenience or their own self. Without accounting what they do for who and especially with no expectation of any return. The majority of us, if honest, will admit that it takes work to weed those ugly things out with the help of the Spirit of God. Not that the joy Yeshua speaks of isn’t an instant reward. Most people I know really feel joy at helping another, giving to someone. Yet we must remember what the thief comes to steal in God’s Kingdom. Joy. How does he do it? By bringing back to mind awareness of self. Expectation creeps in, resentment erodes gratitude and begins to take account of time lost, energy expelled, feelings hurt, thank you’s not expressed, love not returned. In other words the fig leaves of self absorption begin to find their ways into our hands and not even a second has elapsed before we find we sew to cover what our God created soul automatically knows is shameful. 

Look at the difference between these two pictures. 

They say a picture speaks a thousand words. In application to what we’ve covered so far, what do these pictures say to you? It’s a lifestyle and total change in thinking in every way. The difference will astound you. One is community and selflessness. The other is convenience and self centered. One invest in the currency of the Kingdom of heaven, the other invest in the things that rust and moth destroy. One is the way of this world, my house, my life, my responsibilities, my needs, my timing, my opinion, my rights. One is the way of God in this world. Where we live, we have responsibilities, we have needs, we have time to give, energy to share. Where my heart is not settled until those around me are better fed than I. 

What would the world be like, according to the Father and Yeshua’s ways? The question has been asked, written about, talked about forever. Yet we can not read, study and listen our way into application. What can you do to enter in, now, where you are, today? This is always the purpose of the question. The purpose of such writings and talks. Action, trust in action, love in action, our walk with God evident by what becomes a natural flow from the Spirit from our union with Yeshua. His coming is imminent. Yet, the mission, the call, – has not changed. We wait, we look for Him. But we do so by looking at others. The church is failing in this. The average Believer is failing in this. So the world looks like a empty plot with cranes lifting heavy objects into place for one person at a time, for physical comfort and individual needs and wants. Completely clueless of the neighbor, unaware of the Father’s heart breaking. The Father who made all things, for the purpose of love. Not self reliance. 

I leave off with a small handful of the Word that shares this view. From the beginning of our Bible to the end, Adonai, over and over again, points to this fundamental element of His heart. It would be wise for anyone desiring to enter into that Heart to look every single one of them up and ask the Living Word to breath this life into their soul, to again go back to the garden – where self absorption was non-existent. Discovery of God and all He did, does and desires to do is the only thing that matters. May we all be shaped by the wind of His mouth in it! Again just like at the beginning – where He said: “Let there be Light!” And there was! 

Galatians 6:2

Bear one another’s burdens – in this way you will be fulfilling the Torah’s true meaning, which the Messiah upholds.  

Philippians 2:3-4

Do nothing out of rivalry or vanity; but, in humility, regard each other as better than yourselves – look out for each other’s interest not just your own.   

1 John – the entire book.

Proverbs 21:21

He who pursues righteousness and kindness finds life, prosperity, and honor.  

Proverbs 28:27

He who gives to the poor will lack nothing, but he who hides his eyes will get curses in plenty.  

Proverbs 29:13

The poor and the oppressor have this in common: Adonai gives light to the eyes of both.    

All of Matthew chapter 6.

All of Isaiah chapter 5. 

Deuteronomy 10:12-21

So now, Israel, all that Adonai your God asks from you is to fear Adonai your God, follow His ways, love Him and serve Adonai your God with all your heart and all your being; to obey for your own good, the mitzvah  (general principles for living) and regulations of Adonai which I am giving you today. See, the sky, the heaven beyond the sky, the earth and everything on it all belong to Adonai your God. Only Adonai took enough pleasure in your ancestors to love them and choose their descendants after them – yourselves – above all people’s, as He does today. Therefore, circumcise the foreskin of your heart; and don’t be stiff necked any longer! For Adonai your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, mighty, and awesome God, who has no favorites and accepts no bribes. He secures justice for the orphan and the widow; He loves the foreigner, giving him food and clothing. Therefore, you are to love the foreigner, since you were foreigners in the land of Egypt. You are to fear Adonai your God, serve Him, cling to Him and swear by His Name. He is your praise and He is your God, who has done for you these great and awesome things, which you have seen with your own eyes.  

Deuteronomy 15:7-11

If someone among you is needy, one of your brothers, in any of your towns in your land which Adonai your God is giving you, you are not to harden your heart or shut your hand from giving to your needy brother. No, you must open your hand to him and lend him enough to meet his need and enable him to obtain what he wants. Guard yourself against allowing your heart to entertain the mean-spirited thought that because the seventh year, the year of sh’mittah (release) is at hand, you would be stingy toward your needy brother and not give him anything; for then he may cry out to Adonai against you, and it will be your sin. Rather, you must give to him; and you are not to be grudging when you give to him. If you do this, Adonai your God will bless you in all your work, in everything you undertake – for there will always be poor people in the land. That is why I am giving you this order, ‘ You must open your hand to your poor and needy brother in your land.’  

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.  

I will forever be grateful the Lord led me to Mr. George McDonald’s writings. The best thing I’ve ever read about ‘Self’ has been written by his hand. See link below.
