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.

Awake! – Part 3 – The Time is Now

March 22, 2017 at 2:59 am (WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

Psalms 102:12-13

But You, Adonai, are enthroned Forever ; Your renown will endure through all generations.  You will arise and take pity on Zion, for the time has come to have mercy on her; the time determined has come.   

The more I read God’s Word, especially lately, the more I see that every single word applies to either Yeshua’s (Jesus) first coming or second and mostly how they apply to both! His first coming was a determined time and so His second. This appointment He has set is set, immovable and definitive! Signs were placed in the heavens, seasonal changes in the earth indicate that the earth has kept up with His intention; the revealing of things hidden for these two marked off calender days blink like neon signs for those who are looking to Him. I can’t help but get the real sense that every time I look at a clock, I’m looking at Him! To even greater joy and delight, but with no small urgency as well, I hear Him saying, “I’m coming, I’m coming, I’m coming…SOON!” 

Psalms 93

Adonai is King, robed in Majesty; Adonai is robed, girded with strength; The world is well established; it cannot be moved.  Your Throne was established long ago; You have existed forever. Adonai, the deep is raising up, the deep is raising up it’s Voice, the deep is raising it’s crashing waves. More than the sound of rushing waters or the Mighty breakers of the sea, Adonai on High is Mighty. Your Instructions are very sure; holiness befits Your House, Adonai, for all time to come.   

Isaiah 41:4-5

Whose work is this? Who has brought it about? He Who called the generations from the beginning, “I, Adonai, Am the First; and I Am the same with those who are Last.”  The coastlands have seen and became afraid. The ends of the earth have trembled. They have approached, and now they come.   

Isaiah 43:10-13

“You are My witnesses,” says Adonai, “and My servants whom I have chosen, so that you can know and trust Me and understand that I Am He – no god was produced before Me, nor will any be after Me.  I, yes, I Am Adonai; I have declared, saved, and proclaimed – not some alien god among you.  Therefore, you are My witnesses,” says Adonai, “ I Am God. Since days began, I have been He. No one can deliver from My Hand. When I act, who can reverse it?”   

Isaiah 44:6-8

Thus says Adonai, Israel’s King and Redeemer, ADONAI-TZVA’OT (Lord of Heaven’s Army’s ): “I Am the First, and I Am the Last; besides Me there is no God. Who is like Me? Let him speak out! Let him show Me clearly what has been happening since I set up the eternal people; let him foretell future signs and events. Don’t be frightened, don’t be afraid. Didn’t I tell you this long ago? I foretold it and you are My witnesses. Is there any God besides Me? There is no other Rock – I know of none.”   

All of Deuteronomy chapters 32 and 33, are 1st and second coming prophesies! I say that with much trepidation, as I really don’t believe there exist a scripture in the entire Bible that isn’t. Yet I will put a few verses of these two chapters here, without specific identification so as to spur you to go and read these in their entirety yourself. 

They sacrificed to demons, non-gods, god’s that they had never known, new gods that had come up lately, which your ancestors had not feared. You ignore the Rock who Fathered you, you forget God, who gave you birth. 

“I considered putting an end to them, erasing their memory from the human race; but I feared/see (translated יראהyirah in hebrew meaningsee with anger, to make tremble with fury-) the insolence of their enemy, feared/yirah that their foes would mistakenly think, “We ourselves accomplished this; Adonai had nothing to do with it.” 

They are a nation without common sense, utterly lacking in discernment. If they were wise they could figure it out and understand their destiny. After all, how can one chase a thousand and two put ten thousand to rout, unless their Rock sells them to their enemies, unless Adonai hands them over? For our enemies have no rock like our Rock – even they can see that!      

“Rather, their vine is from the vine of Sodom, from the fields of Gomorrah – their grapes are poisonous, their clusters are bitter; their wine is snake poison, the cruel venom of vipers. “Isn’t this hidden with Me, sealed in My Storehouses?   (See John 15:1-6; Yeshua’s Words here are pointing directly back to this passage!) 

When he finished speaking all these words to all of Israel, he said to them, “Take to heart all the words of my testimony against you today, so that you can use them in charging your children to be careful to obey all the words of this Torah. For this is NOT a trivial matter for you; on the contrary, IT IS YOUR LIFE! Through it you will live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to possess.   (This was current to the times of Moses, but pointing to the future, the crossing over the Jordan representing crossing over from this life to our eternal Life with Him forever).

Yeshurun, there is no one like God riding through the heavens to help you, riding on the clouds in His Majesty. The God of old is a dwelling-place, with everlasting arms beneath. He expelled the enemy before you and He said, “Destroy!” So Israel lives in security; the fountain of Jacob is alone in the land of grain and new wine, where skies drip with dew. Happy are you, Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by Adonai, your Defender helping you and your Sword of Triumph? Your enemies will cringe before you, but you will trample down their high places.”  (See again how these words apply to their present application but how they leap through Time to a future of fulfillment in Yeshua, 1st coming AND 2nd! Past, present and future !)  This is why it’s so very crucial to study, read, apply, and know Adonai through all His Word!  

There are a total of 17 words in Hebrew that are God and attribute Time to His Nature, and His alone!

Here are a few:

✡ ערי – ady – witness, till, until, a time, while, a repetition of time either definite or indefinite.

✡ ועד – w’ad – the only Son eternal, the Word eternal, advancing time, destination, target

✡ שנה – shanah – corresponding time period for a different planet, a year representing one revolution of earth around the sun, two, a repeating of the first or what was before, repeat, do something a second time, in the sense of changing seasons, again, generation.

✡ עלם – ulam – My Name is ancient, hide – obscured from sight, covered, unknown, ancient – as time hidden from the present.

✡ חלד – kheled – this world, this life, age, a passing through space or time. 

✡ עולם – olam – a distant time in the past or future, ever lasting, of old, perpetual, evermore, never, time, ancient, world, always, long.

✡ זמן – zaman – inevitable passing of events, measurement of quantity, time set aside, appoint, duration of time, 1st, Last, sleep, connected. 

Hopefully by now you can see, or rather perceive; that Time is not what we possess. That our days are numbered, before we came into physical reality here on earth, we were a true reality in Heaven. That we have been appointed for the specific time we are in, to stand out, speak, witness, repeat, point to, and live as if Time can count everything we think, say, do and stretch us out into eternity with what our witness says. Adonai is the Author of all things, He alone has seen every event long before they happened. Yet those who have gone before us, their lives are still speaking for Him or speaking for the destruction of His enemy. Either way our witness will shout out to eternity! This is why we don’t allow the stupid inclination of the enemy suggest we grow lazy, and resent Time. To see it as some small thing, not the miraculous gift we’ve been given; focused on what this world has to offer and growing ubtuse to the One who has destined our purpose to His glory! He deserves it! Insane thinking that says Life with Him will be boring compared to here and now in this, completely devoid of fulness, of all good things we have had but a small taste of here! So much better will things/Life be with Him should we choose Him! And not just choose to say we believe He exist, even the devils do that! No! We choose to pull everything, all thoughts, and therefore actions, all we are, all we desire into His instructions and Ways, that mark us NOW, as His! 

Job 36:22-26

“Look, God is exalted in His Strength; who is a Teacher like Him? Who ever prescribed His course for Him? Who ever said, ‘What You are doing is wrong’? Remember, rather, to magnify His Work, of which many have sung. Everyone has seen it, but humans see it only from a distance. Look! God is Great! Beyond what we can know; the number of His years is uncountable.   

I’ve mentioned in this blog before that it would be best if when reading the Psalms, that in most cases when the Psalms speaks of enemies to remember the psalmist is usually referring to those powers, and principalities of the air, the one who is seeking to devour, the enemy of God and his minions. For we are not at war with flesh and blood!  Even when we encounter other human beings that persecute us, these are under the power of God’s enemy, tortured souls, hence Yeshua’s instruction to LOVE our enemies, do GOOD to them! The power of Yeshua in our obedient action to do this, not religiously, but because He’s proven such power, such worthiness for us to give up “our rights” in exchange for the right to see Him face to face, really Live a real Life with Him, this is using our Time (talents) wisely. This is the power to save! We were all His enemy once. This is staying awake! Yes, indeed, it surly will mean suffering ridicule and coming soon, severe persecution to do so. The worst of the worst we may be spared, but not all of it dear fellow sheep! This kind of suffering is what shall mark us as His! Him, who came and suffered far more than anyone ever has since our ever will, Him who did this in vast measure, so we could identify in small measure with Him. Shall we count it an honor to whatever degree such things must happen? Knowing that He shall shield and guide us, be present with us, as He was with Daniel in the Lions den, Shadrach, Mishach, and Abednego in the fiery furnance. Shall we doubt Him now or ever – after so long a history of proving Himself true, right, and truly God?

To be awake, is to be on Time! On Time each minute for each appointment He has for us each day, and on Time for THE DAY we shall meet Him in the cloud, changed instantly into the Glory of His likeness in full! Awaken O Bride of The King of Israel, of Heaven and earth! Rise like the deep, rise up and become a mighty wave of the Image we are made in – Yeshua Hamashiach, Salvation is His Name! He comes! He comes again soon! Rise up to meet Him!

Hebrews 1:1-3

In the days gone by, God spoke in many and varied ways to the fathers through the prophets. But now, in the acharit-hayamim (end of days), He has spoken to us through His Son, to whom He was given ownership of everything and through whom He created the universe. This Son, is the radiance of the Sh’khinah (Manifest glory of God present with men), the very expression of God’s essence (image), upholding all that exists by His powerful Word; and after He had, through Himself, made purification for sins, He sat down at the Right Hand of HaG’dulah BaM’romim (the Greatness on High). 

Revelation 22:16-17

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.  
🔯 May the Grace of the Lord Yeshua be with all!🔯

Sorry Sinner – Forgiven Mistake Maker

March 28, 2015 at 4:15 am (Remodeling the Mind) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

image

The biggest lie ever told:

Oh, you are forgiven and saved because you believe in Jesus, but you’ll always sin.

Let’s be clear about what sin is. Sin is a thought or deed we KNOW is wrong and we do anyway. Sin is repetitious, like chronic fatigue syndrome. We say sorry but use our “fallen state” as an excuse to keep doing it. USING Christ’s forgiveness as a tool to keep doing it.
Mistakes, we will make. But sin we do having been unwilling to learn from a mistake.

We have been given Christ’s forgiveness to give to others. We have been given the Spirit of the Living God to teach us how to learn from mistakes, and sin no longer has power from that point. Sin is habitual, mistakes are part of life.

Repented sin, cleans conscious’s, having confessed and turns away from and does the opposite of the original deed.
A liar, tells the truth, both outwardly and inwardly – repentance.
A thief, works for all they get, and gives from then on – repentance.
A fornicator, stops trying to get for themselves from others and serves/sacrifices for others – repentance.
An adulterer, stops taking selfishness to bed and starts being faithful especially to those who are faithless to them – repentance.
A repentance that cost you nothing, is not repentance.
A love that gives nothing, is nothing.
It takes God to correct the “flow” of right action. Saying sorry takes nothing but wounded pride.
Don’t be a “sorry sinner”.
Let Christ’s power flow through your weaknesses and become a sanctified Life learner.
There IS Power in His Blood, its the power of protection, not surrender to sin.

Don’t believe the lie. Christ’s forgiveness sets us free. Sets us free to make mistakes but be unshackled from their repetition. Sin. Sets us free from condemnation because it unshackles us from a repetitiously guilty conscience. Its the power of God come down from heaven to make us stand before Him with the costly blood of His Son to present us spotless. It is true power. Power of true freedom. Not of having rights, and lives and hurts. Instead having a humble spirit, with only His Life as our Life-force and the power to turn hurt into love. Hurt done to us – into love. Now that’s power! It comes from its Originator, the first One to take hurt and turn it into love, forgiveness, grace, mercy, compassion. True Action. Righteous deeds.

Mistake makers ask for feedback and reproof, and receive Life-giving rewards of freedom. Sinners are those in bondage to the lie above. Worse, because they take the Name of God with it and render it powerless. This blasphemes the Holy Spirit.

Yeshua (Jesus) had a message. Open up your Words and read anew.

Turn from your sin and return to God.”

Go ahead, open up to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John; read it for yourself. It wasn’t, “say your sorry, and believe that I will forgive you as you stay as you are because you’ll always be a sinner.” What a human, pitiful rendition of His mission! There’s no such power of God unto Salvation in the flow of that blood. His blood flows with the Power of His Spirit to keep us learning as we walk with Him. Like children learn how to walk. Watch them. They fall, assess, learn, get up. Fall, assess, learn – walk. Talked to, corrected, coached and encouraged along the way. This is the Spirit of our Mighty Living God! The One who keeps us from sin! Knows we must learn. But teaches the difference between sorry sinners and forgiven mistake makers.

May we find our peace in such truth! May we LIVE this power unto Salvation everyday! What a Light He shall be in such vessels of turning!

Eternal Arms that Hold

January 30, 2015 at 4:28 am (Poems) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

Oh you little critical voice
That creeps inside of me
That dives inside and tries to hide
The truth that you are free

That turns your thoughts
Towards other lots
And starts to grab the gavel
Accusing gibes with condemning tides
Where only Love should travel

Those twisted shouts
And selfish pouts
That rage against His Love
I see you now
And throw you off
The Hands of God now shove!

I cast you out
No more to heed
Your hellish sing and creed
There is a Judge
Upright and fair
The pith of every need!

His holiness and bent down hands
Will cover every ear
With precious Blood
That takes the blame
And covers every fear

With His love so rich
And gracious fare
That souls grow mercy wings
I harken now
The hallowed song
And join as Heaven sings

“Fear not, dear child
Call out for help
That rests inside My keeping
That voice of hurt
And graceless worth
My Life shall bring forth leaping!”

All at once
The critical voice
Vanishes like a mist
The rightful Judge
Now sounds His voice
And Love cannot resist

The rest and peace
Where grace now cries
Forgive! And be forgiven!
The heart begins to find its song
And sends it’s voice to the Living!

I thank Thee God
For Your great work
That tends to every sorrow
With faithful grace and mercy calls
That teaches us to Follow

Salvation’s path
The Healers creed
I run towards Your position
And leave behind
Thoughts unkind
With obedience and precision

Yielding up
Submitting to
The righteous Voice emitting
Chain breaking waves
That Freedoms work is bidding

No captives here
No slaves to find
Just precious lambs within Your fold
I harken now and leap into
Eternal arms that hold!
