Rewiring This Old House

When walking into an old house that hasn't been remodeled (transformed), one glaring thing that sticks out like a sore thumb is the need for rewiring of the electrical system. If the electrical system isn't undated (transformed) the house can't reach its maximum power output, and has the potential of burning down. The one glaring thing in your life that's staring you straight in the face is that one thing that Yahweh put there to make you more like His Son. That's the one thing that gets under your skin and aggravates the mess out of you. That one thing can be the beginning of an amazing transformation. We were all born with flaws so that we may see the gap between us and Him and our need for transformation, so we may be like Him. Our problem is simply this: we all think the other guy has the problem. We never see it for what it really is: an opportunity to be more like His Son.
We have been given the power of choice to change... the power to choose God's way.

Ephesians 4:22-24
That you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.

II Timothy 3:16-17
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Romans 12:1-2
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

I Peter 2:21-23
For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps: “Who committed no sin, Nor was deceit found in His mouth”; who, when He was reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously.

Colossians 3:1-10
If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them. But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth. Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him.

James 1:12-15
Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.

II Corinthians 9:8
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.

Matthew 6:33
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

You may be a Flatline Christian if you have any of these symptoms:

1. The thought of loving someone else sends your brain sensory into overload.
2. You become very paranoid if you have to stand up and raise your hands during praise and worship.
3. You have visions of the good ship lollipop when thinking of God.
4. The thought of fellowshipping with anyone in your ecclesia starts your abdomen cramping. And it produces thoughts of vomiting projectiles preceding from your heart.
5. You begin to nervously sweat at the onset of someone suggesting that you should study the word of God or even listen to a podcast.
6. The mention of tithing produces immediate mental explosive diarrhea - you get the runs, you begin the process of running far, far away into another galaxy in your mind and out the door.
7. System shut down starts on the count of T minus 10 when you hear the words, die to self, deny yourself, and Yahweh is right and you're wrong.
8. Serving others means to YOU others only serving YOU.
9. You believe that Yahweh is really Captain Merrill Stubing.
10. You believe all is well and YOU PERSONALLY will be welcomed into the Kingdom by Hervé Villechaize
(Tattoo) Yashua's little brother.

YOU CAN SAY HELLO TO MY LITTLE FRIEND BECAUSE YOU'RE A FLATLINER ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- YOU DEMONSTRATE NO ACTIVITY OF A DISCIPLES LIFE - You have been pronounced DEAD!

Matthew 7:21-23
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

Revelation 3:16
So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.

The Master's Key

Just because you have your own master key doesn't mean it's the key that will open YOUR mind to the TRUTH of the kingdom.

THE KEY .......of me, myself and I, will never UNLOCK the door to the kingdom of God.

Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. 
Luke 9:23 

Notice the word "if" anyone desires to come after Me;
Yashua never said He would force anyone to follow Him. He did say, "if" anyone wants to follow Me
then here are the requirements,
Deny yourself what? Anything and everything that puts Him second.
2. Take up YOUR cross EVERYDAY and follow Him.
3. Yashua NEVER said, denying yourself was a part-time option.
4. Yashua NEVER said, take up His cross everyday, He carried His cross  and YOU must carry yours.
We are to carry our cross through the power of Yahweh's Holy Spirit and the example that Yashua gave us.

We need to stop trying to be our own key-maker and follow the ONE that is the TRUE KEY, He will lead us to EL.
He will open the door to the kingdom  of God if you will seek Him and knock, knock, Knock.
Can you imagine that people's immortality could hinge on "if"?
All that Yahweh has promised is there for those who ........ "If".

Won't Back Down

Ephesians 6:10-20
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

Won't Back Down
By Tom Petty

Well I won't back down, no I won't back down
You could stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down

Gonna stand my ground, won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down

Hey baby, there ain't no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down

Well I know what's right, I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin' me around
But I'll stand my ground and I won't back down

Hey baby there ain't no easy way out
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won't back down

Spiritual Farmer

Become a spiritual farmer. Sow the seeds of Love - Joy - Peace, and prepare yourself to be a reaper of the harvest.

If you call yourself a disciple of Yashua, then ask yourself, "What seeds am I sowing? What harvest am I reaping?"
If you don't consider yourself a disciple of Yashua, then what do you consider yourself to be?

We are called to be disciple of Yashua if we want to get a 'well done' and receive immortality.
Disciples sow many seeds. Three important seeds that are keys to the kingdom of God are LOVE - JOY - PEACE.
Sow them and reap the harvest.

I John 3:16-18
By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him? My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.

I Peter 4:8
And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins.”

Romans 15:13
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

John 16:24
Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.

2 Corinthians 13:11
Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

James 3:18
Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

Luke 10:2
Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.

Become a Love Maker, a Joy Maker and a Peace Maker.

Is Your Faith a Mirage?

Untested faith isn't faith, it's only a mirage. Something illusory, without substance or reality.

Hebrews 11:6
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Romans 8:28
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Why is it when Yahweh is silent we immediately assume He has abandoned us? We need to put ourselves in a position so Yahweh can trust us with His silence so we can allow Him to take His immortal/holy character and saturate it into our mortal bodies. His silence is meant to develop and strengthen our spiritual endurance without us demanding another sign or wonder.
We have developed in our relationship with Yahweh a spiritual fast food mentality.
We want it when we want it, and that means NOW. We have developed an attitude of spiritual impatience.

Yashua said, "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
Matthew 11:28-30

 When you feel that Yahweh is silent in your life, that is when He is probably the closest to you.
We want Yahweh to wait on us and not us on Him.

Isaiah 30:18
Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you; And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; Blessed are all those who wait for Him.

Isaiah 40:31
But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.

Psalms 33:20-22
Our soul waits for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. For our heart shall rejoice in Him, Because we have trusted in His holy name. Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us, Just as we hope in You.

James 5:11
Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord—that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful.

II Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

The key is this - you will never know that He is there if your focus is on YOU.

Your Life as a Prize!!

Your Life as a Prize!!

Jeremiah 45:1-5
The word that Jeremiah the prophet spoke to Baruch the son of Neriah, when he had written these words in a book at the instruction of Jeremiah, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, saying, “Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, to you, O Baruch: ‘You said, “Woe is me now! For the Lord has added grief to my sorrow. I fainted in my sighing, and I find no rest.” ’ “Thus you shall say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord : “Behold, what I have built I will break down, and what I have planted I will pluck up, that is, this whole land. And do you seek great things for yourself? Do not seek them; for behold, I will bring adversity on all flesh,” says the Lord. “But I will give your life to you as a prize in all places, wherever you go.”

Who was Baruch?
Baruch was a scribe that was faithful in writing down the prophecies received by Jeremiah from God. He was ambitious, of noble birth, was the grandson of Maaseiah the governor of Jerusalem during the times of Josiah. He probably looked forward to one day having a high office of state.

What's important about this prophecy that we find in Jeremiah 45:1-5?
What does it tell us about our lives?

Jerusalem was collapsing around Baruch and this prophecy was telling him to give up on his great ambitions and to be satisfied with being able to escape with his life.
He was faithful in writing down the word of God for Jeremiah. He probably assumed that being the grandson of Maaseiah would bring him favor in the eyes of God and that this position in life would lift him to a higher status among the people.
It wasn't who he was, but it was his faithfulness that found favor in the eyes of God.
God is telling Baruch and us simply this;  that the things of this world don't matter, they're just material things.
What matters is our faithfulness and obedience to Him. Yahweh is telling us if we do this we will escape with the prize - "our lives."

Matthew 6:19-21
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

 In Matthew 25:14-30, Yahweh is telling us that each man’s eternal treasure is proportioned according to his faithfulness, and not according to his earthly recognition or the lack of it.

Matthew 25:14-30
“For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey. Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents. And likewise he who had received two gained two more also. But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord’s money. After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them. “So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, ‘Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.’ His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ He also who had received two talents came and said, ‘Lord, you delivered to me two talents; look, I have gained two more talents besides them.’ His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ “Then he who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed. And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.’ “But his lord answered and said to him, ‘You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed. So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest. Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents. ‘For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away. And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

As long as we seek ourself we WILL NEVER KNOW HIM and He will NEVER KNOW US!

What are we doing with what has been given to us?
Are we using it for our great earthly ambitions to feel good about ourselves and to be known by man?

Are we developing our character to imitate Yashua so that which has been given may be used as tools to bring in the harvest?

Keys to the kingdom:
1. Seeking and denying.
Seeking all things pertaining to His righteousness,
Denying yourself to your-self.
2.  Diligence in your faithfulness to the truth of Yahweh.
3. Obedience to the one true God - Yahweh.
4. Believing that Yashua has been given ALL AUTHORITY.
5. Believing Yashua is ABLE to do ALL THINGS that He said.
6. Love - not despising, having contempt, hating, loathing one another, I can't be in the same room,  I can't be married to that............, BUT LOVE ONE ANOTHER! LOVE, LOVE LOVE - maybe if you say it enough times you might start doing it - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.
7. First thing of each morning empty yourself of the poison in your mind and character and fill it with the POWER of YAHWEH'S SPIRIT.
8. After you finished #7 turn over and LOVE someone.

Matthew 6:33-34
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Never become complacent when aiming for the higher prize.
Seek - Seek - Seek - knock - Knock - Knock - then seek some more and knock some more and YOU will find what you were looking for; how to save your life... through Him.

Go Therefore

Go Therefore .....

Only a disciple can disciple.
Only a mature disciple can become a spiritual father.
If your qualification for calling yourself a disciple is because you can read the word of God, you're not a disciple. If your qualification is that you attend church, you're not a disciple. If your qualification is that you sing on stage, teach in front of the body or do anything else that's about you, you're  not a disciple.

You're not a father just because you procreated with 100 women and produced 100 children.
To be a TRUE father you have to nurture, guide, teach, train, love and discipline your children. You have to
sacrifice self for them. All of which involves spending time in their lives.

You're not a spiritual father just because you won (saved) 100 souls.

Men that try to win (save) souls are shallow men trying to put a notch in their spiritual belt. It's all about self/ego.

A Spiritual Father doesn't win (save) souls. He DISCIPLES people to become overcomers and lovers of Yahweh.

Matthew 28:18-20
And Yashua came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and MAKE DISCIPLES of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, TEACHING them to OBSERVE ALL THINGS that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Yashua, speaking to his disciples, told them that he has ALL AUTHORITY. In his name they were to GO to all the nations and MAKE DISCIPLEs. Not save souls. Saving a man's soul is a work of Yahweh, not man.

Matthew 9:27-30
When Yashua departed from there, two blind men followed Him, crying out and saying, “Son of David, have mercy on us!” And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Yashua said to them, “Do YOU BELIEVE THAT I AM ABLE TO DO THIS?” They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.” Then He touched their eyes, saying, “ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH LET IT BE TO YOU.”

And their eyes were opened.
First Yashua wants to know from us:
1. Do YOU believe that I am ABLE TO DO THIS?
2. If you do, then let it be - ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH.

COULD it be that we're so messed up, our children are so messed up and our marriages are so screwed up because we're so addicted to this world that we don't BELIEVE THAT YASHUA IS ABLE and WE DON'T HAVE ANY REAL FAITH?

Only true disciples can disciple.
Face the facts - we're not true disciples. We're shallow people with shallow faith.
Only shallow people put themselves first - me, me, me, my feelings, my feelings, my feelings, my wants, my wants, my wants.

Observation: Yashua can't be fooled and is growing weary of your games.
It's time that you purge the poison from yourself and submit to being discipled. Even if you've been a church goer forever.
Submitting and surrendering means seeking NOTHING OF YOURSELF and  SEEKING ALL THINGS pertaining to Yashua.
Submit and be discipled.

The Mirror of Immortality

"The Mirror of Immortality"

The definition of Mirror - a reflecting surface, used in viewing oneself.

     Let's get real.... just, who are you looking at? Are you gazing intently at Yashua's likeness, or at yourself in the mirror? The standard of perfection set by Yashua's character is where we should set the bar for our character.

- The Keys -
When you receive the keys to your rulership and you walk through that door, what do you expect to see on the other side?
The Garden of Eden?
A lush paradise such as Hawaii, with perfect people to govern?
Maybe you will find Harlem, New York; Liberty City in Miami or Compton in Los Angeles?
What if you open the door and it's the Sahara Desert or the Mojave Desert?

      You may be immortal, but the people you rule over will not be immortal. So, what are you going to do? What are you doing to prepare to receive the keys to your rulership?

      Are you hoping that Yashua snaps His fingers and make everybody sit down and get quiet and listen to you? How are you going to rule? What have you done to prepare yourself for this most important job?

     Look into the mirror of immortality. What do you see?
Are you ready? What are you doing to get ready?

     I think we are under a false belief, or even a disillusionment that we are going to have it easy for the next thousand years once we received our well done. It's as if we have the mentality that we did all the work on this side and now that we're in God's kingdom we can enjoy our retirement. Just put our feet in the beach sand, kick back and enjoy the view. NO, NO , and NO!!  We are in DISCIPLESHIP SCHOOL learning how to be the real deal disciple. When we get our well done, we're going to the nations discipling those that haven't heard the truth of the kingdom.

     We are to be kings and priest for Yashua. We are to be an ACTIVE part of the rulership in His kingdom. We are to be royal representatives of Yahweh's kingdom. How can we be representatives if we don't know and live our faith?

     So, I say again, look into the mirror of immortality. What do you see? Do you see someone that's ready for rulership or do you see someone that's UNDER A DISILLUSION?

On a scale of 1-10:
Are you lazy in this life?
Do you put things off in this life and think you'll get to them later?
Do you love your enemy?
Do you love your neighbor?
Do you even love one another in this ecclesia?
Do you think more of the least of these in here than yourself or your family?
Are you sacrificing more for the least of these in here than for yourself or for your family?
Are you treating yourself to more of what the world has to offer, compare to how your treating the least of them in this ecclesia?
How are you with joy and peace?
How are you with becoming a peace maker?
Anybody can love their friend, but can you love your enemy?
Can you show them the same kindness as you would show your friend?

      Let me suggest that we need to take a hard look into the mirror of immortality. For this is our reasonable service to The Lord.

      I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Romans 12:1- 2.

That's the REAL DEAL TEST to see if we're ready to rule.
You may not be ruling over people you know, but probably people you have never met and possibly your enemies.
How are we going to look in that mirror and say, "I'm ready?"

     We first start by learning to rule over our flesh, our internal dialog and our motives.

Ask these questions of yourself.....
1. Are you daily inventorying your internal and external reflection of Christ?
2. Christ was a wanted man, are you?
3. Are we daily renewing and transforming our minds in His truth?
4. What is it that allows a transformation to take place?
5.What has to happen for a transformation to occur?
6. What is the process of a transformation?

     I think we need a complete cultural change in our minds if we're ever going to become kings and priest of Yahweh. It doesn't say we're to be janitors and ditch diggers of Yahweh.
So why are we always settling for less?

     And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ Exodus 19:6

     But you shall be named the priests of the Lord, They shall call you the servants of our God. You shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, And in their glory you shall boast.
Isaiah 61:6

     you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
I Peter 2:5

     and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Revelation 1:6

     And have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth.”
Revelation 5:10

Maybe I need to consider that if I haven't overcome my addictions in this life, that they're not going to magically disappear in the next life.

Here are some addictions that we have a fix for.....
Verbal abuse
Physical abuse
Wrong motives
Emotional dependence
And the list goes on......

     These mountains of addiction can be moved and thrown into the sea if we have the faith of a mustard seed.

     So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”
Matthew 17:20, 21

      For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
Mark 11:23, 24

Here are some questions for our generation?
1. Do we really believe?
2. Are we just playing the religion game, just in case there really is a God that created everything?
3. Are we playing the religion game because we want to be good moral people and raise our children to be the same? Come on people, seriously.....
 4.We don't really believe do we, that there's an all powerful God that created everything?
5. A God that demands obedience, a God that's loving but always demands justice, do we?

Come on people, seriously.....
Look at the way we live.
Look at the way we approach Him.
Look at the way we fear Him.
Look at the way we love Him.
Look at the way we obey all His commands.
We don't really believe, do we?
Seriously, look at the other gods we serve; money, fame, drugs, pornography, and most importantly...self.

     This sounds like the rambling thoughts of a mad man, or are they?
IF THERE is anyone that still believes, THEY have chosen to put Yahweh on the level of a mediocre magician.

     SO I SAY AGAIN, we don't really believe, do we? WHAT will happen to this generation? WHAT will happen to these people? WE DON'T REALLY BELIEVE!! DO WE? Sounds like this could have been the internal dialog of Noah before the flood 2468-2348 - BC, or could it be Noah's internal dialog if he were alive today?

I'm  commanded to love one another.
Loving someone doesn't mean you have to like or approve of what they're doing.
But, you can still love them where they're at. Yashua healed the sick because he had compassion for them, he was willing, and he loved them. But, then he said, go and sin no more. He loved them but he didn't like or approve of what they were doing.

     A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
John 13:34, 35

     Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
I John 4:7-11

     By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome.
I John 5:2- 3

     People have said to me, you just don't understand what I'm going through. You just can't relate.
You're right. Maybe sometimes I can't relate to you because you're  still clinging to the world and I'm separating myself from the world.

     For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.” Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.” “I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the Lord Almighty.” II Corinthians 6:16-18

     We have an opportunity to be Kings and Priest of the one true God. Sons and daughters of Yahweh. We don't have time for our petite baby ways.
We need a thinking change or a diaper change. We need to stop saying, that's just my personality, THAT'S JUST HOW I AM. No, you're nothing like I AM, but you could be and you need to be. Exodus 3:14

     WHAT do you think could possibly happen if we truly said I'm all in? If we truly developed a character that imitated Yashua and then we were all in, what do you think would happen?

      Listen closely and I will tell you what will happen. A great awakening will take place in the minds and hearts of people in every nation. Yet we are waiting for someone else to do it. And Yahweh is waiting for His columns to become the real deal, sons and daughters, future kings and priests that will rule and reign with His son Yashua. Sons and daughters that, by becoming His character, will join as lintels and become load bearing support that not only the house, but the kingdom may be built upon. Through them, those columns and lintels, Yahweh will reveal His glory to the earth.
We are supposed to be like Him... Yashua.

So I have questions:
1. Why are we not about our Father's business?
2. As if our life depended on it, why are we not doing all that we can to prepare to be Kings and Priests?
3. Do we really think we can have the world and His kingdom?

      We need to look STEADILY and SOBERLY into the mirror of immortality and ask ourselves, "Are we prepared to do whatever it takes to be KINGS and PRIESTS, or are we just pretenders?"
It all starts with the person in the mirror that you have fixed your gaze on.

Are you kidding me?

Have you ever wondered why people in the world look cross-eyed at believers who say they're following the ways of Yahweh, but are living their lives as of those in the world? It's like me going to a health food store and taking the advice of an extremely overweight sales clerk.

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever. I John 2:15-17

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:1, 2

Good Secret

Good secret!!
The serpent didn't understand the things of God because......
1. He was a beast.
2. As a beast his final destination was to return to dust.
3. Most importantly he didn't have a soul so he couldn't be renewed into immortality.
4. The serpent didn't have an understanding of the things of God so he couldn't understand right from wrong. He was there for one purpose only and that was to give Adam and Eve a chance to prove themselves before Yahweh. Just like the serpents that are in our daily lives, they're there to give us a chance to prove ourselves worthy before Yahweh. Just as Yashua prove Himself before his Father.

We have to ask ourselves not if we are able to overcome the serpents in our lives, but are we willing to overcome them. It's about our willingness to be an overcomer of these things of the world that prove ourselves before Yahweh. It's not about the power to overcome because Yahweh gave us that power through His Holy Spirit. It's all about our will  saying no to the worlds will and yes to his will. That is the struggle and always has been and always "will" be the struggle. He just simply wants us to prove ourselves to Him.

Here is a thought - Spiritual development has to be a way of life - it has to become your "life style" - just like eating healthy has become a life style for my family.  What would happen if we went off of eating healthy - we would crash and burn. When spiritual development hasn't become our life style we find ourselves in a downward spiral of crashing and burning and are often wondering why serving God isn't working.
Just something to think about ........

Yahweh is very meticulous in the way He operates. He drown everybody but eight. He kicked Adam and Eve out of the garden for disobeying one thing. When He said, there is only one way back to Him and that's through His son, He meant it. When He said, only a few will find the way and become overcomers, He meant it. I think we should take Him for His word.

True Power

We are not able to accomplish anything externally by the nature of our own strength. It was the internal dwelling of the Holy Spirit ( not the visiting of the Holy Spirit ) that allowed Yashua to accomplish external works for his Father. When we attempt do anything on our own merit for Yahweh, we will fail every time.

Simon Peter said to Him, “Lord, where are You going?” Jesus answered him, “Where I am going you cannot follow Me now, but you shall follow Me afterward.” Peter said to Him, “Lord, why can I not follow You now? I will lay down my life for Your sake.” Jesus answered him, “Will you lay down your life for My sake? Most assuredly, I say to you, the rooster shall not crow till you have denied Me three times. John 13:36-38


How many of us without hesitation  would jump out of the boat to walk on water to go to Yashua? But, at the same time all the power on earth can't move us on dry land. Walking on the narrow path isn't learned by being impulsive. We must become disciplined to be an overcomer and that isn't learned in five minutes.

P - praise
R - repent
A - ask
Y - yield

Think of prayer this way. Think of a powerful 100 car freight train loaded with supplies, materials and equipment. Without an engine it will just sit on the tracks in the train yard, going nowhere. Prayer is the engine, the power that gets our freight train moving down the tracks. We are the engineers that must turn on the power to the engine for the train to move down the tracks and get to its destination. Without prayer, we are powerless and going nowhere.

John 14:12-14
John 15:16
John 16:24
Matthew 11:25
Matthew 9:38
James 1:6-7
James 4:3
1 John 5:14-15
Mark 11:24
Philippians 4:6
Galatians 6:9
Hebrews 11:1

Raising the bar!

World champions always raise the bar of expectations of their ability to reach greater heights of performance to set new records. We as followers,  and supposedly disciples, of Yashua should be raising our own personal bar of excellence to be more like Him. Just saying!!

Steps to Yahweh Likeness: # 1

"Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one! You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates." Deuteronomy 6:4-9. Also, read Deuteronomy 8.

The foundation of a house is its strength. If the foundation is weak, the house will eventually fall. Read Matthew 7:24-27. The foundation is the basis for what everything else is built upon. This commandment that is found in Deuteronomy 6:4-9, is the foundation of the Kingdom of God. Matthew 22:37-40, “Yashua said to him, ‘You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.’ Also, read Mark 12:29-34.

God commands us to love Him with all of our heart, mind, soul and strength.

Love God with all your heart. The Hebrew word for heart is “lebab” (Strong’s #H3834). “Lebab” means – inner man, mind, heart, soul, understanding

Love God with all your soul. The Hebrew word for soul is “nephesh” (Strong’s # H5315) “Nephesh” means-1) soul, self, life, creature, person, mind, living being, desire, emotion, passion.2) that which breathes, the breathing substance of being, the inner being of man.3) living being (with life in the blood)

Love God with all your strength. The Hebrew word for strength is “m@`od” (Strong’s # H3966). “M@`od” means- exceedingly, much, might, force, abundance.

God commands us to keep these words in our heart and to teach them diligently to our children.

Diligent- constant, careful, effort, perseverance, working hard and carefully, steady effort.

Like a printing press, God wants us to print His ways on the hearts and minds of our children. God said we shall talk of them:
1) when you sit in your house…
2) when you walk by the way…
3) when you lie down…
4) when you rise up…
5) and they should be bound all around you and all that you own

Notice that the words teach, talk, sit, walk, lie, and rise are all action words. God is commanding us, not asking us, to physically act upon His commands. Like a poker game, God wants us all in, holding nothing back. He wants us to have total love, obedience, faith and trust in everything he says and does. God doesn’t want us to hold back any chips. He wants us all in, or nothing at all.

"No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (the world).” Matthew 6:24

The Lord our God is a jealous God. Read Joshua 24:1-28 and Exodus 34:14. God doesn’t want any other Gods to come before Him. What are other God’s that we put before Yahweh? They are family, careers, fame, riches, material possessions, video games, sports, lusts of the flesh, lusts of the eyes and the pride of life. If you truly want to enter into God’s kingdom and want your children to love and obey God, then you must saturate your every day experiences with thoughts and actions built on the foundation of the kingdom of God. Leviticus 19:2 says “You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy.”

1 John 2:3-4 "Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, "I know Him," and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him."

Absolute Truth

Russian Commander General Miltonovich Alighieri confirmed today that a cyperspace XB320 satellite has found what appears to be a stone tablet beneath the Arctic ice. Commander General Alighieri said a team of the world's greatest scientist are working round the clock to recover the tablet. Team leader, Dr. John Dante, said they believe the stone will reveal what man has been searching for since the beginning of time, which is" Absolute Truth."

Dr. Dante said that while attempting to penetrate the ice an unusual event took place. A arctic Dodo Bird walked up to the team of scientist and just gazed at them for hours. At the very second that the stone was in reach of the greatest minds in the world, the Dodo bird began to speak. Dr. Dante said they thought the cold was affecting their power to reason and to think clearly.

The Dodo bird continued to talk asking over and over the same question. "Can you tell us what you're doing?" Dr. Dante said the team gave into their delusions and answered the bird. "We are about to recover the stone tablet that contains what all mankind have been searching for since the beginning of time- Absolute Truth."

The Dodo bird looked toward the heavens and said, "They call me a Dodo?" As he turned and walked away, he said with a voice that all could hear, "Listen, O men of the earth. The fool has said in his heart, there is no God. They are all corrupt, they have done abominable works. There is none who does good." Psalm 53:1.

Even a Dodo bird knows that the only "Absolute Truth" is God's word.

Grace, Hope and the Cesspool

Grace, O Grace, amazing is God's Grace. I walk blindfolded through a field of cesspools and my outer being is stained with excrement of my sin. It's inevitable that I will fall deeper into my pit of sewage. The stench fills my inner being- my mind, heart, and soul. Deep within my sewage I call out, but no one hears my cries. Thoughts of drowning in my surrounding waste now consumes me. "Deliver me!" I cry deep within my spirit. Uncontrollably, I weep; for I know I have no hope. "Praise be to my LORD and GOD!" He hears me. His mercy throws me a rope of Grace; His Grace that I must grab hold of. His Grace pulls me out of the pit of waste and puts me on solid ground. He removes my blindfold. Shows me the way to His home. Tells me if I would stay straight on His path, a path that He has laid out for me, a prize would be given to me for being faithful. He says His home is a land and kingdom without cesspools. He says that I must heed the warning not to wear the blindfold. He tells me that next to the path that leads to His home there are sewage pits. He insists that I be aware of salesmen that are also along the path promising wonderful and exciting things. He tells me they will allure me by asking me to sample their new and improved cesspool. Temptations of something new and exciting overwhelm me. His promise of a prize for faithfully following His path consumes my core, and my eyes are fixed upon His home. I am so saturated by His thoughts and ways that nothing else matters. Step by step, closer to the hope of the promised prize, I now notice the salesmen are mute and the echoes of a celebration are getting louder. The journey is long, very long. The path is filled to the brim with danger on both sides. "O praise be to Him that pulled me out of my sewage pit!" Yes, I'm here standing at the gates ready to enter into His home. He invites me to sit at His table. Yes His table. The room that once was filled with uncontrollable celebration is now quiet. He looks into my eyes and tells me that I've done well and have been faithful. He tells me that my promised prize is the gift of immortality and to rule and reign with Him in His kingdom forever. I'm speechless. I fall to my knees and begin to weep. I praise Him for His mercy, grace and goodness that He showered upon me. He lifts me up and gives me a hug that only a daddy could give. Once again, He looks into my eyes and tells me, "You are my son. let's celebrate!" Praise be our GOD and KING, forever and forever!

God doesn't want a casual believer. Galatians 6:7-9 says, "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart."

By God's grace the children of Israel were freed from Egyptian slavery. All but two (Joshua and Caleb) died in the wilderness because they sinned against God. So, why do we think that because we are saved by grace we have a license to sin? Exodus 19:5-6 "We are to be a holy nation." Read Deuteronomy chapter 32- "It is your life and by this word you shall prolong your days." 1Peter 1:15-16 " holy, for I am holy."

"Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose hope is the LORD. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river, and will not fear when heat comes; but its leaf will be green, and will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will cease from yielding fruit." Jeremiah 17:7-8.

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time." 1 Peter 1:3-5

Called Out

"For I will take you from among the nations, gather you out of all countries, and bring you into your own land. Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh." Ezekiel 36:24-26

Am I a Friend of God?

I am a friend of God. Really. Are you sure that you and God are friends?
"Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends. You are My friends, if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you. You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. These things I command you, that you love one another." John 15:13-17. Yashua said, "You are My friends, if you do whatever I command you."

Yashua said that "If we abide in Him we are to bear much fruit. Anyone that doesn't abide in Him, will be cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned."

Yashua commands us to love one another. Yashua didn't ask us for our opinion, or say, "Hey guy, would you maybe consider loving one another?" No. He commands us to be obedient to ALL His commandments and to walk in ALL His ways. If you're a friend of God, if you abide in Him, there's not an option. It's His way only!! Paul said, "For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain." Philippians 1:21. Paul wrote in Philippians 3:14 "I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Yashua." To be a friend of God is to be in total agreement in ALL of His ways. There is NO option.

Posers and Pretenders

What does God say about posers and pretenders? Those that come to church and give all the outward appearance of walking in His ways inside the church, while outside the church they walk of the world. Seriously people, I feel what God is saying is, "Walk in My ways or don't." God doesn't want in-between people.

Revelation 3:15-16 says," I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth."

Listen to me- open your ears and hear what God is saying to us. If we are not hot for His ways then we make Him sick and we are vomit that He will spit out of His mouth. I think we need to daily check where we are with our walk.

Today I need to be honest with you LORD. If I am not hot for You, then fill me with your Spirit so I will be of You and not of the world. Am I a poser or pretender? Am I a lover of truth, obedient to ALL of Your commandments? Do I walk in all of Your ways.? Do people mistake me for Your Son Yashua? Am I vomit? These are questions that need to be answered.
