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.

WHO or WHAT are Christians?

WHO OR WHAT ARE CHRISTIANS?

Without knowing it, Christians are followers of a Greco-Roman culture of names, terms, and festivals, all adopted intact from Pagan sources, yet adapted or mixed carefully with ideas and people from the Hebrew Scriptures.

The mixing together of practices and beliefs is called syncretism. These heresies began through the teachings of Simon Magus, and eventually became the institution known as Roman Catholicism. The Great Schism produced the Eastern Orthodox Catholicism, and later the Reformation in the 16th century further fragmented the movement; but much error remained from the adherence to the early “church fathers” and their writings. These “church fathers” persecuted and despised the first followers of Yahusha, the Natsarim, and wrote about us. They satanically considered us “heretics” because we obey the Torah.

My own pastor of a small “Bible Church” simply ignored my email when I sent him one outlining my understanding of the Word.  This grieves my heart to this very day, because I loved my pastor and hugged him after every sermon.  I encouraged him for years, yet when I wanted to sit with him and discuss obedience as defined by Yahuah and Yahusha, he was silent.

He could never refute the truth that I bring to the conversation, so he became silent.  Any attempt at refutation would brand him a heretic, because he would be refuting the very words of Yahuah, not my own words.

I had to leave that place, and it hurt.  But I could not sit before a teacher who was afraid to discuss and teach the very Word of Yahuah.  It is a “knock the dust from your sandals” moment, and my heart is sad from it.  How can a man who pastors a church turn his face away from the very Words of Yahuah?  How can it be?

Yet so it is with the “church” world wide.  Every detail of Scriptural observance was omitted by the “church fathers”, and replaced with new observances. With skillfully crafted reasoning over many centuries, the formerly Pagan observances were camouflaged or wrapped in new meanings.

Examples:

Sacraments – Yahuah never commanded them, hinted at them indirectly, or mentioned any such thing. They add to the Torah, against Dt. 12.

Sun-day – the Day of the Sun. Many other “strange festivals” were invented, all being adaptations from former sun worship.

Easter Day – the Pagan festival of the impregnation of Mother Earth by the rays of the springtime sun. Ishtar, Ostara, Astarte, Eostre, Asherah, Eastron, Ashtaroth, and other names were used for this Pagan deity. It became adopted to refer to Yahusha’s day of resurrection.

Easter is the proper name of the Pagan Queen of heaven.

(Google the words: Ashtaroth, Easter)

Christmas – The winter solstice festival, commemorated as the nativity of the sun, re-thought by Dionysius Exiguus in 525 CE, now promoted as the birthday of the Messiah of Israel. Wreaths (wombs), trees (phalluses), tinsel (semen) & balls (testes) were used to observe the sexual aspects of this Pagan ritual. The tree was an altar where offerings were placed for the deity (Asherah).

The womb wreaths represented Baal, and the phallus trees represented Asherah. This is a practice inherited from the ancient Canaanites, specifically Jezebel.

Ultimate determination:

The Messiah of Israel observed none of these practices.

1 John 2:3-6
“We know that we have come to know Him if we obey His Commands. The man who says, “I know him ,” but does not do what He commands is a liar, and the Truth is not in him. But if anyone obeys His Word, Alahim’s love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in Him: Whoever claims to live in Him must walk as Yahusha did.”

If we walk “as” Yahusha did, we do the things He did, and observe the observances He observed, according to the Word of Yahuah. He lived as our example. So, how does it become appropriate for us to ignore all the things He did, and embrace Christmas, Easter, and Sun-day, observances borrowed from Pagan cultures?

This brief comparison page is intended to EXPOSE the darkness and deception that has overtaken the world.

“For you were once darkness, but now you are LIGHT in (the Rabbi). Live as children of LIGHT (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases (Yahuah). Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.” Eph 5:8-12

CHRISTIANITY: Synagogue of Shatan (began at the Catechetical School of Alexandria)

“Christianity” is not a term or topic found in Scripture. Christianity is a hybrid religion of traditions based on many of the teachings of Yahusha ha’Mashiach, but not the same religion He taught. It is a mixture; partly of the Torah of Yahuah and customs from Babylonian Paganism. Christianity is a way of life about the Messiah of Israel, divided into thousands of sects over interpreting the Torah, with special days of the year adopted from Satanic, Pagan origins. ALL Yahuah-commanded feast days are neglected (see Lev. 23, Deut. 16).

A system of beliefs based on Messiah, but acting in ignorance, through tradition, their customs stem from Pagan symbols and observances. Several centuries after the original students of Yahusha, the heretical path originally established by Shimon the Magician (Simon Magus) began to overtake the true faith, and eventually Catholicism developed from it. From the Catechetical School of Alexandria, the “church fathers” developed the doctrines of Christianity. From Rome, an authoritarian organism modeled in the “image” of the Roman beast arose and controlled many nations. Eventually, “daughters” of this system broke away (the Protestants), carrying with them the “mark” of the Sun-day “sabbath”. It became the “synagogue of Shatan”.

The word “Christianity” is not found in the received text at all, and is not found in any concordance. The practices are a blend of ideas about the Messiah of Israel, attached to old Pagan observances in order to camouflage them from their origins. It is a monstrosity or hybrid blending of a diverse number of Pagan religions, and the knowledge of this is kept from its adherents. Believing and doing are often separated in its philosophy. Obedience is praised if it fits traditional norms, but condemned if it fits Scriptural instructions. Scripture is divided, and a division exists between the Hebrew / Yahudi (Jew) and the Gentile Christian in terms of what is to be obeyed or ignored in the Torah, based on this difference. So, in their teachings, there is not one body of believers, although this will be denied by most.

The wordChristianity” is not found anywhere in Scripture. Encyclopedias tell us it is a religion, and that it was founded by “Jesus Christ”. It was really founded by “Simon Magus“, and his tomb is under the altar in “St. Peter’s” Cathedral at Rome. The “church fathers” further developed the Greco-Roman roots at Alexadria, Egypt, allegorizing and mixing many formerly Pagan practices into their belief system and practices. The topic of Christianity is not found in Scripture either. What Scripture DOES acknowledge as the “way” is the “WORD OF YAHUAH”, and the “TORAH OF YAHUAH”. That should be our way; and it is certainly what Yahusha taught — He didn’t teach Christianity. No follower of Yahusha ever taught us anything about Sun-day, Easter, Christmas, popes, nuns, holy water, sacraments, or any separation of Yahusha’s body into a “priesthood” and “laity”. We are ALL priests on level ground with one another, and He is our High Priest. If you are studying something, and embrace it as a way of living, shouldn’t you search it out completely and find where its roots lead? If the root is good, then the fruit it bears will also be good. Christianity is a usurper, and a religion without Hebrew roots — only Greco-Latin ones. Esau, and his Edomite descendants, were also usurpers. They sought to steal the birthright and promises that were only given to Israel. This is what is at the heart of Replacement Theology.

Christianity, therefore, is like Esau and the Edomites. They modify the Covenant and claim legitimacy.

The strongest of these supplanted the true Christian church and became the teachings of what would later be called Catholicism which thusly suppressed and opposed other sects as being heretical. What a prime example of true hypocrisy. Let us examine some interesting common themes and practices of these old pagan mystery religions and the church professing to be of Christ.

“The first two teachers to propagate gnostic ideas within Christian circles were Simon Magnus and his successor Menander. Unlike later and more famous representatives of Gnosticism, both Simon Magnus and Menander claimed divinity for themselves. According to Acts 8:9-11, Simon called himself the ‘great power of God’.”- Harold O.J. Brown, Heresies.

Simon the “Christian” “made himself out to be a great one”. He pridefully exalted himself before the people who wondered at his sorceries. “…Simon Magus, who in the Acts of the Apostles earned a condign and just sentence from the Apostle Peter.

He had the hardihood to call himself the Supreme Virtue, that is, the Supreme God; and moreover, (to assert) that the universe had been originated by his angels; that he had descended in quest of an erring daemon, which was Wisdom; that, in a phantasmal semblance of God, he had not suffered among the Jews, but was as if he had suffered. -Tertullian, AGAINST ALL HERESIES.

Point here is this: “Christianity” is nothing.  It is a bogus, made-up “religion” that is, in my studied opinion, the very working of error cited in the scriptures that is called the “Great Deception“.  Think about it – how dead is the “christian” church?  How much adultery exists in the “christian” church?  How much divorce?  Greed?  Lust?  Envy?  Strife?  Gossip?  Slander?  How many “christians” do you know who actually study the Word of Yahuah?

So you see, the love of the Truth is NOT in them.  If the love of the Truth is not present, then a soul is NOT saved, for it cannot belong to Yahuah and simultaneously ignore the Truth.  The love of the Truth is a measuring rod.  Do you love Truth?  Do you know what Truth is?  Be honest, because Yahuah knows the truth regarding YOU.

Dig for access to Yahuah 🙂  Bug Him continually to change you.  We cannot be saved unless He saves us.  We cannot come to Him unless He calls us.  Love one another.  Do good to others.  Be kind, merciful and gentle.

And study His Word!

Some of us are about to be called away.  Be fully prepared when the bride groom comes.
