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!”
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.
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.
“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?”
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 יראה – yirah in hebrew meaning – see 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!
“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!
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).
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!🔯
🔯 Grace and Peace be unto you in full measure, in union with Yeshua the Messiah 🔯
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!

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
The Healers creed
I run towards Your position
And leave behind
With obedience and precision
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!
♡ Grace and Shalom in Yeshua the Messiah ♡
~ Mary Magdalene ~
With wandering eyes and aimless zeal,
She hither, thither, goes;
Her speech, her motions, all reveal
A mind without repose.
She climbs the hills, she haunts the sea,
By madness tortured, driven;
One hour’s forgetfulness would be
A gift from very heaven!
She slumbers into new distress;
The night is worse than day:
Exulting in her helplessness;
Hell’s dogs yet louder bay.
The demons blast her to and fro;
She has not quiet place,
Enough a woman still, to know
A haunting dim disgrace.
A human touch! a pang of death!
And in a low delight
Thou liest, waiting for new breath,
For morning out of night.
Thou risest up: the earth is fair,
The wind is cool; thou art free!
Is it a dream of hell’s despair
Dissolves in ecstasy?
That man did touch thee! Eyes divine
Make sunrise in thy soul;
Thou seest love in order shine:-
His health hath made thee whole!
Thou, sharing in the awful doom,
Didst help thy Lord to die;
Then, weeping o’er his empty tomb,
Didst hear him Marycry.
He stands in haste; he cannot stop;
Home to his God he fares:
‘Go tell my brothers I go up
To my Father, mine and theirs.’
Run, Mary! lift thy heavenly voice;
Cry, cry, and heed not how;
Make all the new-risen world rejoice-
Its first apostle thou!
What if old tales of thee have lied,
Or truth have told, thou art
All-safe with Him, whate’er betide
Dwell’st with Him in God’s heart!
