Let The Christians Go

I have not posted much lately, mostly because my life has been rapidly evolving and I lacked the focus to share any meaningful information.  In the last 90 days, my wife divorced me, my oldest and dearest friend died without bothering to even let me know he was sick, and I walked out of my Christian church convinced that there is no good going to come from my fellowship with the members there.

The Divorce

I have been in a serious bind maritally for many years.  Although I loved my wife, there were several important issues that had made life together extremely difficult for many years.  I prayed for YEARS for Yahuah to resolve them, and finally, this year, I began to pray that He would provide a definitive conclusion to our problems.

He did.

While driving my car one evening, I noticed that a car was following me through traffic on a congested Interstate highway.  That car followed me everywhere I went, and, phoning my wife, I mentioned that to her.  She had taken the kids out of town that day and I wanted to make sure that they all got to her destination safely.  When I mentioned the pursuit vehicle, she replied “He’s probably trying to serve you divorce papers.  I filed for divorce today.”

My children heard that, too, as they were in the van with her.

After we concluded the call, I simply raised my face to heaven and said “Thank You God.”

The divorce was stressful.  I could not afford a good attorney, and rather than trot in some low-end pro bono lawyer, I represented myself.  In the end, things went very well.  Her attorney commented to me that this divorce was the most calm, easy and remarkably smooth divorce she had ever been a part of.

It was smooth, for sure, although the judge didn’t listen very well.

My prayer was that Yahuah would let me be satisfied with whatever outcome came from it.  My goal was to end this thing in a state of graceful gratitude, believing that His Will was done and that He loves me.

It was so.

My former wife and I still talk, nearly every day.  She calls and invites me to do things, and she cooks for me sometimes.  Ours is a respectful relationship and I must say that life is good.  Last Sunday she texted and asked me if I wanted to take a drive that day.  Sounded good to me, and we went on a long one to a popular small town and walked around, shopping and eating.  It was a wonderful time.  A couple of days later (two days ago) she called me and invited me over for steaks and Monopoly.  Hard to say no to that, and again, a blessed time.

Interestingly, I have zero interest in “finding another woman”.  I don’t know what the future holds, but I’m proud of her composure and behavior.

My Son Is Assaulted At School

Yesterday, I had to go visit with the police at my oldest son’s middle school. He is 13 years old, and a genuine prince; a truly beautiful child.  A gang of bigger boys beat him up, and I was furious.  My former wife went with me, and she presented details to the police that I was unaware of.  When were concluded the meeting, I left feeling that justice just might be served.  The main antagonist is a boy that has spent the night at my house, eaten my food and was invited to do things with my sons and I.  He violently attacked my son, who is smaller than everyone on that gang of seven.  A second attacker also jumped on my son and grabbed him by the throat to choke him, all in the hallway of their school.

There were several witnesses, and my son was attacked from behind by a boy already on probation for breaking into a church building and vandalizing it.

Luke was injured, and we took him out of school for the remainder of this school year, which ends in about nine more school days.  He will be fine when his knees heal.  The investigation is not complete but I expect to file assault charges against both.

Death of My Friend

My friends name was Lane Alton McCarty.  He and I met at church camp when we were 13 years old.  In fact, we met in a GANG FIGHT at church camp 🙂  He was on the opposing side.

Over the years, we participated together in much sin.  Yes, it was fun and exciting.  We drank together, smoked pot together, told stories about various girls to each other, learned to drive the same summer and became local legends.  Lane was more wild than I was, but I took far greater risks.  A problem he had was his fondness for drugs.  I was never into anything like that, other than pot and beer.  Lane like pills and powders, and was once busted with a one gallon bag of cocaine.  He was busted for possessing a machine gun, too.

But he straightened his life out quite a bit, although never an a biblical sense.  He was able to get some good jobs and make good money.  One year I know he cleared $186k, because I worked with him in that software company.  We both did well.  I designed a super-computer to replace a clients CRAY 1, and founded a biometrics company that was eventually traded publicly in NASDAQ.

But as Lane grew older, he started sliding back into his old ways.  He kicked his wife and kids out of home and started using meth with some of the slimiest people imaginable.  The last time I talked to him, which was two years ago, I gave him some tough love regarding his drug use.  That made him very angry with me, and he never spoke to me again.

He died a shriveled up skeleton of a man, alone in a hospital in Houston, TX.  He was 61 years old.

Was he saved?  I think not, because I think he would have reached out to me if he had accepted Yahusha (Jesus to him) as his savior.

But maybe, I hope, he called on the one he would refer to as “Jesus” as he lay in that bed dying.  Maybe he did.  But Lane was exceptionally stubborn and prideful.  So who knows?

Salvation At Death

This bring up a point I want to make regarding Torah, obedience and salvation.

Absolutely Yahuah gave us Torah so that we would know how to express worship to Him in ways that are meaningful to HIM.  Obedience is worship, and as the Scriptures tell us, sin is simply disobedience.  That’s something the Christians tend to reject out of hand, and to their detriment.  But those who accept “Jesus” on their deathbed will certainly be accepted into heaven.  Yahuah is merciful, and these death-bed conversions don’t give the newly saved any time to discover Torah.  These folks will be “the least in the Kingdom of Heaven”.

But we who abide in Torah will be considered “great in the Kingdom of Heaven”.  There are the great, the least, and everyone in between.

The thing to bear in mind is that Yahuah knows everything about us.  He knows our heart, and although many Christians do love Jesus, most of them are under the deception that “grace” removes from them the responsibility to worship Yahuah as He prescribes.  They deny His commands, claiming that the commands are “for the Jews only”.

Obviously, they do not study the Words because Yahuah Himself stated plainly that “there is ONE LAW for both the foreigner and the Hebrew.”  He states that, if the foreigner wishes to worship Him, the foreigner must worship Him exactly as prescribed for the Hebrews.

Those Christians who choose to worship Him yet disobey the very God they claim to love so much will stand before Him in Heaven and accept His right ruling regarding their fate.  If He is truly their “god”, they will seek Truth and walk in The Way, bringing me to my last point.

Abandoning The Christians

As some of you know, I have endeavored for a few years to attend a local Bible church and influence Torah obedience among the fellowship there.  They are really nice, decent people, classically Christian in that they are quite friendly in the church building.  Very chatty and ha ha ha ha at whatever is said in passing conversation.

This past Sun-day, I was in the big adult Sun-day school class, and we had a new teacher.  He was official, hand-picked by the Pastor.  He stood at the lectern with his marked-up and TABBED bible, teaching that Torah was for the Jews.  He spoke of righteousness, faith and belief at length.  I raised my hand at one point, fighting the desire to shout “BLASPHEMER” at him.

He recognized my hand and I asked him to define “Faith”.  He defined faith as “belief”.  So I asked him to define “belief”, and he responded that it is the same as “faith”.  My head was starting to spin.  I replied, rather loudly, a question: “Are you telling me that one word defines the other?”, and he relied “yes”.

I turned to the class and said “This teacher does not even know the meaning of the words he is talking about.  ‘Faith’ requires actions, and those actions are fully described in Torah.  ‘Belief’ is the faithful walk of the obedient.  We are required to live out our faith by worshiping Yahuah according to HIS commands, which He declaeres are FOREVER.”

I’m getting wound up.  My adrenaline is flowing.

“Also, Yahusha (I didn’t want to say ‘Yahusha’, because that confuses the Christians, but it popped out.) said Himself that IF we love Him, we will keep His commands, and THEN His Father in Heaven will love US, and THEN He (Yahusha) will manifest Himself within us.”

I followed that with the part about the foreigner being required by Yahuah to worship Him exactly as He prescribed to the Hebrews in the desert with Moshe.

That pretty much ended Sun-day School.  There was a quick prayer and everyone split, except for one older fellow in a suit, wearing a big cross around his neck on a chain.  He walked right up to my back and started telling me that I didn’t know what I was talking about.

I turned around, asked him his name (Len), shook his hand and said “It that the biggest cross you could find?”

I went out, sat in my customary seat beside the Pastor, and left immediately after the service.  I’m done there.  Listening to some teaching on the youtube channel “Triumph In Truth“, I heard a teaching on being unequally yoked as it applies to those who are Natasarim as they relate to the Christian church, and concluded that there is no way I can go back to that dead little body of the blind.

So don’t you go trying to put new wine into that old skin, brothers and sisters.  The Christians will only hate you for your great faith.  Your faith causes them to tremble and doubt.  Just as the Pharisees had Shaul arrested for being “in a sect called The Way“, so will Christians ultimately turn on you when the Red Dragon comes.

They will never find the narrow path that leads unto Righteousness.  They intentionally deny that path of righteousness, and live in the satanic deception that “Grace” frees them from the responsibility to believe God.

Some Fun Understanding Of Our Relationship With Our Father

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. - Matthew 7:14

We tend to doubt that He desires the best for us in our human lives, and we do not believe that His plans are superior to ours most of the time.  We wrestle with Him, wanting what we want and hoping that He plays it our way.

Not 🙂

His way is best, but sometimes it is a bumpy flight.  Gratitude toward Him for whatever the outcome is key.  Trust that He loves you and live in gratitude for whatever rolls your way.  That is Faith.  He will handle things.

Faith, Baby!

As many of you know, I spent the last five weeks in a worst-case world. It involved several of my emotions, and those at the maximum level of performance. Anger, fear and love were all at the boiling point. It was truly terrible.. Sometimes I could only shiver, my whole body literally shaking in these small amplitude tremors, from my neck to my toes.

That is odd, actually. Have you ever experienced that?

But something wonderful happened. I was able to let go of all of it. Yes, it was still quite difficult, quite stressful, uncertain, hostile, sad… but I had a dream 15 years ago, and in that dream there were three little boys walking down a sidewalk in front of a house that was alone on that street. The trees were tall and evergreen, and there was a waterfall in the woods across from the house. A mountainous area, I suppose.

I drove first into the woods for no reason other than curiosity. Nice waterfall, and exit the forest road back onto the road.

Suddenly a rainstorm of biblical proportions struck. My truck was spinning wildly in the storm, and all I could see through the wind shield was water spattering onto it. Nothing but water and wild wind. I wrestled the steering wheel, trying to control my vehicle until a voice within me said “Let go.”

I let go, and instantly the storm stopped, as if it never were. And there in front of me were those three boys.

I knew that they were mine, although at the time I was not married and had no sons.

But I do now, and my sons are the same ages and sizes as the three in the dream. Exactly, down to the hair color and body build. They wore backpacks with earbud wires hanging out, tennis shoes, blue jeans, jackets and caps. The smallest one was in front – and I got to see him from the side. The smallest boy in the dream was identical to my 4 yr old son, Nate.

The point of the dream was this: We must learn to let go, and embrace the love and mercy of Yahuah. Particularly His mercy, which we often forget.

This storm that I just endured is the climax of that dream. The storm began before my first son was born, and lasted until yesterday. 14 years. Terrible storm. Ended.

It ended well. It ended well because of this: I believe that my Father loves me and has the best in mind for me. I believe whatever happens to me is for my good. Therefore, in the climax of the storm, I asked Yahuah to help me believe that, regardless of the outcome, it is His blessing to me and that I be grateful for that outcome.

That is what He did.

I am a fighter. I do love battle. I am aggressive, skilled in multiple forms of combat, and just as Daud cut off the head of the giant, so do I finish my opponents – decisively and and with prejudice.

But Yahuah restricts me in those things, and I am glad. Nonetheless, in this storm that passed, I had not yet begun to fight when it ended. Yes, I was engaged in the conflict but I had not even entered my powerband when it was over. Finished.

And that is where I had to let go. I could not continue the fight, and my primary weapons remained undeployed.

Disappointing, but the Will of Yahuah is merciful, and for His mercy I am exceedingly glad.

So today, the first day after the end of the storm, I find that my heart is light. Joy resides in me. Gladness exudes from me. I have peace, and real peace, for the first time in years.

Next time you face a difficult trial, let it go. Trust that Yahuah actually loves you, and that He is actually merciful and not a liar. Trust that, no matter what the outcome, He has the best in mind for you and nothing can overcome that. Nothing does overcome His Will, but I have learned from experience that we personally have outcomes and objectives that we personally want, and if we are stopped by some other person or thing, we get angry, frustrated and start praying “oh god, please help me achieve/obtain/get/win/escape/insert-verb-here”.

Well, if its not His Will, you will not receive it. So we must believe in our FAITH. Faith is exhibited by OBEDIENCE. Obedience means yes, we TRUST that HE LOVES us and is MERCIFUL.

Therefore, because Yahuah wants good for us, He will steer us toward GOOD, and we will get there IFwe DO NOT resist whatever He is doing by demanding that we want what we want. You know, forcing the situation. Being angry and then sinning in your anger by operating outside of TRUST, FAITH, LOVE and MERCY to and from GOD.

In all of our conflicts throughout life, He is with you if you are His child. He steers us and guides us but most of the time we simply demand whatsoever we demand, operating outside of His desire for us.

If you have lived long enough, you realized long ago that you create nearly all of your own problems.

Now you know why 🙂

Daddy loves you. Don’t argue with Him and do trust that He keeps His Word. That trust is obedience and it is credited to you as RIGHTEOUSNESS, which is very important for the outcome of your battles.

 

There Is Nothing That Compares To The Power Of Truth

Last week I started teaching my sons from the Book of Matthew (Besorah Matityah, or “The Good News According to Matthew”).  Matityah (aka Matthew by the KJV translators/creators) is a very special book on the Word of Yahuah, because it teaches so many things.

One of the “things” that Matityah teaches which is quite remarkable is this: If you do not forgive your enemies, or those who have harmed you, Yahuah (“God” per the KJV translators) will not forgive you of your own sins.

These Words are from the very mouth of Yahusha.  Carve them onto your forehead… Continue reading “There Is Nothing That Compares To The Power Of Truth”

‘Gods you are , And sons of the Most High’

I think X-mas is tomorrow. How ironic it is that the “X-mas” thing, which is so offensive to most Christians, is also quite true. There is nothing of Yahusha in this pagan holy day.

But today is too important to spend it discussing what has already been put to bed.

Instead, let us talk about lust – you know – the “thirsting for another” kind of lust. Have you ever done that? Have you ever been snuggled up to your husband or wife or girlfriend or boyfriend, or crusing in your car or on your motorcycle or sitting alone on a park bench or sitting in church, burning with aching desire to have the person across the room, or in some other town, or across your dinner table?

Is Nimrod The Beast Which Will Rise From The Abyss?

Video: Rob Skiba, Torah teacher and loves Truth.  A reliable witness.

Nimrod is a fascinating person to study.  He was the most powerful king on earth in his day.  He was the son of Ham and the grandson of Noah, who was still alive during Nimrods’ reign.  Surely the satan wanted some payback for the flood, and he deeply corrupted Noah’s grandson, making him the fiercest human enemy of Yahuah who ever lived.

Nimrod was in the process of “becoming a mighty hunter”, according to Genesis.  Being a “mighty hunter” or a “mighty one” was like being one of the “men of renown” – a bad thing.  Like the Nephilim, Nimrod was doing certain wicked things in order to gain what we would call ‘supernatural power’.

He planned to kill Yahuah and become god himself.

There is much more to Nimrod than most people realize.  His religion is still with us today, promoted very craftily by none other than the Mystery Babylon itself – the Catholic Church.  The Catholic Church is wicked beyond measure and serves its god diligently.

The goal of the satan is to deceive the entire world.  To that end, he infiltrates every organization on earth and uses his influence to create vast armies of liars, working together to blind those who do not seek the truth.

Seek, and you will find.  Leave no stone unturned, and challenge every assumption you have until you possess the truth.  There is much to discover.

Willful Ignorance Is Rebellion – Especially In The Pulpit Of Christian Churches

My family and I went to a typical “Christian” church this past Sun day, (linked to pagan origins of the whole “Sun Day idolatry) and I saw several people there that I am acquainted with.  It was good to see them.  The Pastor there is also an acquaintance, and I have always liked him quite a bit as a person.  Before I was summoned by the Holy Spirit to Torah, I even loved his preaching 🙂

He preached a sermon that was remarkable for its fantasy-weaving attributes, especially for the statement he made near the end, when he said “The love of God (he means Yahuah, not Moloch or ISIS, or Baphomet, etc) is ‘”unconditional”, and that there are no “performance requirements” from the God he promotes.

Here is the audio excerpt of him making the statement.

Strait Is The Gate And Narrow Is The Way, And Few Are They Who Find It

This is a tremendously exciting scripture.  When one understands that we are called to accept Yahusha’s salvation and to follow the commands of Yahuah, the whole Bible lights up.

For example, last night I was teaching my sons Torah, reading from the front page of this website.  The part from the Book of Acts was a terrific teaching point, and one we are all to remember.

Acts 24:14 (NKJV) – “But this I confess to you, that according to the Way which they call a sect, so I worship the Elohim of my fathers, believing (“believing” means doing) all things which are written in the Law and in the Prophets.

Who wrote this?  Who is it that stated they worship Yahuah through believing all the law and the Prophets?

If The Law Does Not Apply To You…

I met with a fine Christian brother recently, a Pastor, and we had a powerful conversation regarding who is “Israel”, and who is expected to obey the commands of Yahuah.

He does not believe that non-Jews are called to obey the commands of Yahuah, stating that all of those laws are “for the Jews”.  That Israel is “Jew only” might be more accurate.

If he is correct in that non-Jews are free from the Law, then for us, sin is impossible.  Yippee!  It is impossible to sin without the Law, because sin is transgression of the law (1 John3:4).  And if a gentile cannot sin because gentiles are not required to obey Yahuah, then we can fornicate all we want, right, Pastor?  And homosexualism, even in the Pastorate, is OK-fine, right?  Because if gentiles are free from obedience to the commands of Yahuah, we don’t even need salvation, since “sin” will apply only to the Jews, Pastor.
