I was reading the comments on Chik-Fil-A abandoning some organizations that serve Yahuah, especially the Salvation Army. The Salvation Army, you see, stands against homosexualism, as do I and as does the Word of Yahuah. In fact, Yahuah says to kill practicing homosexuals, pedophiles, adulterers and some others. (Leviticus 18 and 20)
Yahusha mercifully relieved us of the requirement to stone homosexuals when he saved the life of the woman framed for adultery. “Let he among you who is without sin cast the first stone“. So no stoning from us, but an abomination is still an abomination and homosexualism is detestable in the eyes of my Father. Those are His Words. I submit to Him.
In one of the comments on that web page, a fellow cited that he was a “Christian”, and said that he was against anything that causes “division”.
A “Christian” standing firm against “division”.
One of the things I most enjoy about my Father is the situations He puts us in. He puts us to the test all the time, and this is an instance of that. He wants to know who will stand for Truth? How will we do that?
Yahusha said that He did not come to bring peace, but a sword 🙂 Wow I love my Holy Father! He is all business and He never deviates from His Words. How mighty He is, how Perfect in His understanding and how Good He is to me.
33But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father in heaven. 34Do not assume thatI have cometo bring peace to the earth;I have not come to bring peace,but a sword. 35For I have come to turn ‘A man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.…
So brothers and sisters, though we are few, we are worldwide. We have regular visitors from all over the earth, one here – one there, a sprinkling.
We are few, finely and rightly divided – separated out from the world. We are different, holy, a royal priesthood.
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. (1 Peter 2:9 NIV)
And what might that “wonderful light” be? It is the fullness of our relationship with Yahuah through submission to Yahusha, who came to claim, to place His mark on ALL who Yahuah has GIVEN Him. Yahusha will not lose one single soul of the elect. All will ascend to stand before the Throne of Yahuah and look directly into the “impenetrable light”, wherein resides The Father of All That Is. The Origin and The End. That is why we strive in this dead world – for that moment in that Light with Him. It is the pearl of great price, worth selling everything to obtain.
We will always be few on earth, and we will be hunted and persecuted. Don’t fear that. Embrace it. It is an honor to hated by the enemy of the Light. If they ever start executing Natsarim, I will run to the front of the line. (Sounds like Peter saying he will never denounce Jesus, huh? 🙂 Well, I pray that Yahuah will give me the heart to run to the front of the line.
Love you all. I surely do. You are true sheep, so sweet and precious.
