I just woke up from a most wonderful nights sleep, and am at my desk drinking a big mug of coffee. I was pondering the possibility of Israel being the “little horn”, and found a neat website with some good information on it, but it was about the Vatican being the ‘little horn’.
The following information is provided from Cepher.net, the translators of the most accurate, informative Word I have ever found. You can be confident of their research, giving you confidence in your understanding. – JWD
“We have set forth the name of the Messiah as Yahusha (יהושע), partly because this name is identical to the name as was set forth in Bemidbar (Numbers) describing the Ephrayimiy Husha, the son of Nun, who was selected as one of the twelve to spy out the Promised Land during the beginning of the Exodus.
Alright, please take a deep breath, because no doubt, some will be offended by what I present to you as Biblical, Holy, Inspired “Truth”. You must relax, trust me a little bit and understand that I approach you from a position of love. Love first for the Truth, and then love as I am commanded to love YOU just as much as I love myself. Everything here is scriptural, and most is from the mouth of Yahuah (aka ‘GOD’) Himself.
John 8:31 – “To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.32Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
The truth will set you free. Yahusha said that, yet most people either reject it immediately as a religious platitude, or misunderstand it, thinking that it means that Yahusha (the Truth), will free us from our life of bondage to sin.
The Lord Yahuah will allow church-going people to believe a huge error because they “did not receive the love of the truth.”
2nd Thessalonians 2:10 – “and in all deceit of unrighteousness(the lies that lawlessness is covered by grace) in those being lost (in the process of falling away), because they did not receive (it is offered and taught in the Scriptures – but rejected by the church) thelove of the truth in order for them to be saved.”
2Th 2:11 And because of this, God will send to them a working of error, for them to believe the lie, (“a working of error” sounds like a work within the church, a doctrine in the church that is in error and that this error is a lie, not a mistake; a false premise, not a position of sound doctrine.)Continue reading “Podcast: “I Will Send A Powerful Delusion””
Ani, the Lord Almighty is forgiving and graceful and merciful. In our personal lives we have to deal with people who sometimes despise us. If we were more worldly, if we craved money more or worshiped debt more or swam in any of the wide varieties of lust, or if we drank unto drunkenness more or simply lived a life absent of the presence of the Holy Spirit of God, the world and the lost souls in it would find us more tolerable.
The Three Angels and Babylon’s Fall
…11 And the smoke of their torment rises forever and ever. Day and night there is no rest for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.”
12 Here is a call for the perseverance of the saints who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.13 And I heard a voice from heaven telling me to write, “Blessed are the dead—those who die in the Lord from this moment on.” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labors, for their deeds will follow them.”
Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things.
Rejoice in Yahuah always. Rejoice in Him. Let your gentleness be seen by all. Yahuah is always near you. Do not worry about matters or things. Pray regarding your needs. Ask Yahuah and do so as you thank Him. The peace of Yahuah will encompass you and His peace will protect your heart and your thoughts. Continue reading “The Time To Forgive Is Now. Make Those Phone Calls.”
A teacher brought something to my attention recently, citing Exodus 3 where the one most call God instructed Moses in His name. Moshe wanted to know what he was supposed to tell the skeptics when he told them whatever GOD wanted Moshe to tell them.
Here is the dialogue:
13 Moses said to God, “Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I tell them?”
14 God said to Moses, “I am who I am.[c]This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I Am has sent me to you.’”
15 God also said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, ‘The Lord,[d] the God of your fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has sent me to you.’
“This is my name forever, the name you shall call me from generation to generation.
The unknowing will say that the Israelites were the Jews, but there were no Jews at this point in history. Israelites would be the descendants of Jacob, who was renamed “Israel” by GOD.
So what does the name “Israel”mean? Good question and the best study and analysis I have read is available. Before I link to it, and because most of you might not read the entire linked page, I want to quote for you the very last section:
“Our guess: Israel means He Retains God, or slightly more elaborate: He Has Become A Receptacle In Which God Can Be Received And Retained. This most primary Biblical concept was obviously revisited in the story of the manger in which the Word was received.
The statement above was arrived at through a lot of analysis, which you are able to read yourself here, but the meaning for you and me is clear: Israel is anyone who is saved and keeps the commands of God.
Ezekiel 36:26-27 “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and you shall keep my judgments, and do them.”
Note that God says
HE WILL GIVE A HEART OF FLESH (not of stone; a soft or compliant heart)
HE WILL PUT HIS SPIRIT IN YOU
HE WILL CAUSE YOU TO WALK IN HIS STATUTES
YOU WILL KEEP (know or guard ) HIS JUDGEMENTS
YOU WILL DO HIS JUDGEMENTS
Because you are Israel if you do these things.
“Our guess: Israel means ‘He Retains God’, or slightly more elaborate: He Has Become A Receptacle In Which God Can Be Received And Retained.
His judgements and commands. We retain them and are Israel. We are Israel because that is the Will of I AM, not because we chose to. We do not choose. I AM does the choosing, and He chose you. Do you see that clearly now?
And what is His name?
And how is this phrase pronounced?
Ani. Ah-nee, emphasis on second syllable.
This is the name he gave to Israel, and now you know who Israel is. Israel calls their God “Ani”. Who is Israel? Those chosen by Ani to be Israel. You know who you are. If you are not Israel, ask Yahuah to choose you. Seek and you shall find. Ask and it shall be given to you.
