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”
Faithfulness. Loyalty. Fidelity. These are on my mind heavily today.
My mother told me decades ago that I was “loyal to a fault.” At the time I was a teenager, maybe 18 or so, and didn’t quite catch her drift, so she explained to me that I was loyal to my friends even when it was not in my best interest to be that loyal.
But after many decades of contemplation, I still believe that loyalty, faithfulness and fidelity are the cornerstones of integrity. Certainly they are the three legs of righteousness, because who among us can be simultaneously righteous and unfaithful? Not possible.
But back in the days when my mother told me that, I was Continue reading “Its Easy To Serve The Satan – Just Be Yourself.”
1 Peter 4:12 – Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13. But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. 14. If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. 15. If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. 16. However, if you suffer as a follower of Yahuah through His son Yahusha, do not be ashamed, but praise Yahuah that you are of The way. 17. For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the truth of Yahuah?
“If it is hard for the righteous to be saved, what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?”

Sitting in Sunday School this morning, our teacher asked everyone to turn to 1st John, chapter three, verse four. I love this scripture, as it defines what sin is. Let me ask you, before you go further, what is sin?
Its clearly defined for us. My Pastor said “We should believe what Jesus says about the Word of God”., and he is right. My Pastor also said “When we contradict Yahweh, we blaspheme Him”, which is also true.
So what is sin, brothers?
Most people in your church, including you, likely do not know. Our Pastors teach continually the necessity of “not sinning”. We all know sin = bad. We all know we are sinners, yet as Paul said, we do continually obey our flesh and deny our minds, ultimately we sin. But sin can be avoided, because Yahuah tells us plainly each sin. In writing.
