Being all that Yahuah has in mind for you to be means letting go of all that you have in mind for you to be and following His lead. Every good thing in my life has come from Him, at His choice of time, His choice of what, and His choice of why. I have never had less (fewer possessions/home/friends/money) yet have never had the very consistent peace that I have now. Yahusha is truly the Prince of Peace.
Mat 10:34-36 – Yahusha said “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. I came to divide a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a bride against her mother-in-law. Ones hostile to the man shall be those of his own house.” Mic. 7:6
Mat 10:21 But brother will betray brother to death, and the father his child. And children will rise up against parents and will put them to death.
Mat 10:22 And you will be hated by all on account of My name, but the one enduring to the end shall be kept safe.
Yahusha (Jesus) came to stir up trouble. He came to lay down the dividing line between the faithful and the fake. He came to create deadly division, to divide, to separate and to create strife, enmity and hatred toward those who follow Him and from those who fight Him.
I was just concluding an email to a dear brother at FossilizedCustoms.com, when the Holy Spirit of Yahuah spoke in my spirit these words: The World Changes Right Away. (This was first published December 1, 2019. Covid time, changes the world. – JD)
I hesitated for a moment before typing them, because I tend to hold back more than I should. I err on the side of caution. Not that caution is lack of faith, but because I often catch myself writing more information than most readers want to read.
Nonetheless, we live in the most important time of our lives, and much must be said, quickly.
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 tothe 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?
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.
