“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.

In order to answer a barrage of questions and to educate our brothers and sisters in the Way, I am opening a section on the enemy and how he operates. It is quite a bit of work, for sure, but I have studied in this area for years and knowledge of satanic machinations throughout history is fascinating, for sure. I’m not talking about the blood of human sacrifice, but the things he has done to further his “god on earth” goals.
When I grasped the magnitude of the satan’s effort, skill and success, I gasped. That moment was unique. And the most shocking revelation was the MAGNITUDE of his lies and the astounding SUCCESS he has with those lies.

It’s late; 12:12 AM. I’m listening to a singer who goes by the name “Sade”. She is singing a song titled “Somebody Already Broke My Heart”, and this woman can sing. Its smooth, almost jazz, but much better, with a simple rythm, simple lyrics and her velvet voice.
Thought you might be curious about the music I listen to at 12:12 AM on a Friday morning in South Texas. Continue reading “We Build With Small Stones”
“A house divided against itself cannot stand.” Who said that? Yahusha (study the linked page) said that. If Yahusha said it, we can be certain of it. A house divided against itself cannot stand. It will fail, collapse, divide and decay. His statement applies to nations, churches, marriages, teams and all organizations or entities which are comprised of more than a single mind.
This makes His statement “I and the Father are one” uniquely powerful in that Yahusha states that He and Yahuah are of one single mind, that Yahusha only does the Will of Yahuah. Beautiful stuff.

How To Study The Instructions Of Yahuah – It Is Only Difficult When We Personally Make It Difficult
When one is new to Torah observance, one can find oneself at a loss regarding “Where to start”. Its funny that Yahuah left us His “Instructions” or “Words” (mistransliterated as “Law”), without a “Start Here” button to click.
So one will ask friends, search the interweb, read various sections of Torah and generally attempt to piece together a process of study. One thing for sure you will learn, as did I, is this: Obedience is easy until we make it difficult ourselves. It is our selfish flesh that makes obedience difficult, every time.

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.
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. Continue reading “Let The Christians Go”
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.
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.
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. Continue reading “Faith, Baby!”
Remember when you first started using email, and sometimes you would hit the SEND key before you edited your fresh composition? Or maybe you wrote a real payback-is-hell email to your boss or wife or husband or friend, and it was mostly an exercise of “Oh I wish I could send this”, and you sent it?
I did that two minutes ago.
Not an email but a posting that went out to a whole bunch of subscribers. It is a piece about fidelity, respect, obedience from wives to husbands. I have some wonderful women who subscribe to me and I do try to be sensitive to “feelings”.
Nonetheless, Yahuah is no respector of persons, so neither should we be. And wrong is wrong. Sin is sin and we all need to love more faithfully.
I’d like to speak to Mr., now. Husband, father, son – the man. Commanded to love his wife repeatedly by Yahuah, what does that tell us about men? Continue reading “Loving Puts A Shine On Your Soul”
05:49 AM, Friday. On the headphones is the band Imagine Dragons, an Indi Rock band that I have grown quite fond of. The album is EVOLVE, and the music is great. Just fantastic, and I like it at about 50 percent volume. Louder would be just fine for me, but not for my ears.
The particular tune playing as I start this is the song “Rise Up”.
I encourage you to read and study the Word of Yahuah. Trust Him, lean on Him, and never try to “figure Him out”, because you can’t. No one can. Paul tells us that Yahuah is “inscrutable”, and that means “you cannot figure Him out”. Continue reading “Knock Knock! “Who’s There?” :)”
