A Great Flame

Isaiah 43:2
When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

James 3:5-6
Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.

We may not be thrown into the fire like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. We may have our own 'flames' to walk thru. If you are following hard after YHWH and the Messiah Yahshua Jesus you are going to have trials. You are going to be hated. You are going to be raked thru coals. You are going to be slander.

Keep your eyes and heart on on your King and you will find those flames don't mean a thing.

Be strong and courageous.

Daniel 3:17-18
If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.
But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

The Ancient Paths


The Armor of Elohim Examined

The Armor of Elohim Examined

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.
In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;
and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,
praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,
Eph 6:11-18


The Belt of Truth

Psa 119:160 The sum of your word is truth, and every one of your righteous rules endures forever.
Jhn 17:17 Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.
GIRD YOURSELF ALL AROUND WITH THE WORD OF TRUTH


The Breastplate of Righteousness

Deu 4:8 And what great nation is there, that has statutes and rules so righteous as all this law that I set before you today?
Psa 5:8 Lead me, O LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies; make your way straight before me.
Psa 119:142 Your righteousness is righteous forever, and your law is true.
Isa 55:8-9 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
COVER YOURSELF WITH HIS DEFINED RIGHTEOUSNESS


The Gospel of Peace

Lev 19:18 You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against the sons of your own people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD.
Deu 6:5 You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
Psa 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
Isa 30:21 And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.
Mat 22:36-40 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?”
And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”
WALK IN THE PATH OF PEACE TOWARDS GOD AND MAN


The Shield of Faith

Psa 119:138 Thy testimonies that thou hast commanded are righteous and very faithful.
Hab 2:4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.
Jas 2:17-26 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
SHIELD YOURSELF BY WALKING OUT YOUR FAITH
The Helmet of Salvation

Gen 24:65 For she had said unto the servant, What man is this that walketh in the field to meet us? And the servant had said, It is my master: therefore she took a vail, and covered herself.
Psa 32:1 Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered.
Pro 29:2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.
Mat 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Mat 7:29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
Mat 8:9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
Mar 13:34 For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
Rom 6:18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
1Co 11:3-12 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God.
1Co 15:24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
PUT ON AND WALK UNDER THE SYMBOL OF HIS AUTHORITY


The Sword of the Spirit, The Word of God

Pro 30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
Luk 11:28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.
Jhn 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
1Ti 4:5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
Heb 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Rev 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
HEAR AND DO THE WORD OF GOD, PUTTING TO DEATH THE FLESH, GIVING BIRTH TO THE SPIRIT

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
Eph 6:11-13

My Thoughts on Weekly Bible Reading ~ Genesis 12-18 Abraham and YHWH

YHWH calls whom He chooses.  He looked down upon the earth and chose Abram, from the city of Ur of Chaldea, an area also known as Sumeria.  YHWH says to him....

"Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred,
and from thy father's house,
unto a land that I will show thee:
And I will make of thee a great nation,
and I will bless thee,
and make thy name great;
and thou shalt be a blessing:
And I will bless them that bless thee,
and curse him that curseth thee:
and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed."
Genesis 12:1-3

And Abram does.  He packs up his wife and heads out.  He lives in tents in the wilderness, amidst his flocks and the servants (whom we learn later LOVE Abram and choose to follow him even with death on the line).  And YHWH blessed him and all he had.  His flocks multiplied, his wealth multiplied, they were healthy and secure.  Whenever someone did attack him and take from him, Abram was given great victory.  He regained ALL his belongings and the people that belonged to his household.  He also gained an enormous amount of loot above and beyond what was taken from him.

We know for some time though, Abram and Sarai had heaviness in their hearts regarding a child.  While they were blessed greatly.... with no child of his own, what did it matter?  In just a matter of years, Abram's name and fortune would be lost to the wind because he had no heir.

In chapter 17 YHWH changes Abram's name to Abraham, Father of Many Nations.  And YHWH tells him that Ishmael, who is not the son of his wife, is NOT going to be his heir.

But that is about to change....

In Chapter 18 Verse 1 we read..... "And YHWH appeared to him..."

Who is this 'man'?

Why He is none other than Yahshua!!!  Recall His 'shem', the Hebrew word meaning Name and Reputation.

Yahshua IS
  The Son of Adam
  The Son of Man
  The Word made Flesh
  The Light of the World

And as He said of Himself in John 8:58, "Yahshua said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I AM."

Is this the only time that He appears before men in the Old Testament?  NO!

Daniel also saw Him face to face in Daniel 10:5-6.  Note the description of this man compared to Revelation 1:13-15.

Eyes of Flame
White Robe with Gold Sash
Bronze or Copper colored skin
Voice as mighty waters or a multitude

But his appearance to Abraham was not so.  He appeared... just as a man, much as he appeared to Jacob in Genesis 32:25-30.  Of course Abraham still recognized this visitor, by the authority of His conduct.  He graciously accepted to sit and sup with Abraham.  And immediately promised that Sarah would bare a son within a year.

I Love Yahshua

I love Yahshua!


He saved me. Not just by dying on a cross for my sin. Not just by taking the curse and allowing us to be remarried to him.

He saved me by protecting my life and my heart in an abusive home.
He saved me by banishing a nightmare that followed me even in my waking hours.
He saved me by the small whispered voice to not give up when I couldn't find Him. Oh how I looked in the wrong places!

He saved me when I did give up and planned to commit suicide. He said, "You have lived all this time for you. Live now for me." What could I lose? I certainly didn't know what I would gain.
I accepted.

He gave me my true love, Aaron, after I thought there was no possibility of our reunion.
He gave me my beautiful, vibrant children when the Dr told me I would never bear a child.

Every battle I have faced since I accepted, embraced, covenanted with Him, He has been there. Every struggle put before Him, He fixes

He rebukes my sin. He pulls me to know Him better. He teaches and leads me to be the best wife and mother and daughter of YHWH that I can be daily.

I love Yahshua.

If you don't know Him, I will gladly tell you about Him all day long. Or better yet, get to know Him yourself. And when he says, "Live for me." Take it. With both hands. You will never regret it.


Isaiah 8:20
20 To the law and to the testimony:
if they speak not according to this word,
it is because there is no light in them.

Revelation 12:17
17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman,
and went to make war with the remnant of her seed,
which keep the commandments of God,
and have the testimony of Yahshua the Messiah.

HOW TO - Prayer and Warfare

HOW TO - Prayer and Warfare

John 15:7
If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.

DAILY PRAYERS

Several times a day (Daniel 6:10, Psalm 119:164, Psa 55:17)
Towards Jerusalem, any direction YHWH can hear you, but He PROMISES to hear you when you pray towards Jerusalem (1 Kings 8:22-61, 2 Chronicles 6:32)
Aloud, your voice has power, YHWH can hear you when you pray silently, but praying aloud is an open declaration of your faith in YHWH and WHO has ownership of you and your space, freeing Him to work more completely in that space(Gen 1:3, Gen 21:17, Gen 30:6, Num 20:16, Exo 4:12, Pro 31:9, Psalm 81:10, Romans 10:9, Romans 10:10)

YHWH, in the name of Yahshua, please surround this space with angels (consider consecrating the space, all entryways, boundary lines(THIS is dedicated to YHWH and for His glory)) fill this space with your Holy Spirit.
(Psalm 91:11, Psalm 34:7, 2 Kings 6:17-20)
Bind all evil spirits in and around this space and around these people present.
Bind the spirits of _________ (breathe and listen to the holy spirit to tell you any names of spirits that must be bound, now and throughout your time in prayer, and throughout your day).
Reveal any spiritual objects that must be bound or removed from this space (breathe and listen/feel for the holy spirit to guide you to any objects that must be spiritually bound and/or removed).
(Matthew 18:18, Matthew 16:19, Mark 3:15, Luke 11:20, Matthew 8:28-34)
Bind all evil spirits in and around this space and help us to hear the Holy Spirit VERY CLEARLY.
Pour your Holy Spirit upon us (consider consecrating all those present(_____ is dedicated to YHWH, to be used for His glory.)), to give us wisdom and discernment, to help us walk in the fruits of the Spirit, Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self Control.
(Romans 8:23, Galatians 5:22-23)
Put on us (especially all believing adults present) the armor of Elohim. Gird us with strength, the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth, the preparation for the gospel of peace, the helmet of salvation, the shield of faith which quenches all the fiery arrows of the evil one, the sword of the spirit which is the word of Yah, sharper than any two edged sword. Help us to stand for the glory of your name, in the name of Yahshua.
(2 Samuel 22:40, Psalm 18:32, Proverbs 31:17, Isaiah 59:17, Eph 6:12, 2 Cor 10:5)
I put before you ________ (name all your friends, family, neighbors, people you met or have committed to pray for, elaborate on their needs if you know them)(breathe and listen to the holy spirit if any person needs to be put before YHWH)
(James 5:16, 1 Timothy 2:1, Ephesians 6:18, Ecclesiastes 4:9-12, Philippians 4:6, Colossians 1:9, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Matthew 5:44, Matthew 18:19, Hebrews 4:16, Colossians 4:2)

 The enemy WILL constantly try to get back in your home and life. BE READY!!! Be VIGILANT!
(Matthew 12: 43-45, 1 Peter 5:8-10, Proverbs 4:23, Deuteronomy 4:9)

 WE must commit daily. We are slaves to righteousness or slaves to sin.
(Jos 24:15, Deu 11:26, Deu 30:15, Lam 3:22-23, Romans 6:15-23, Matthew 6:24)
Read and submit to the word.  His word is life.
(John 8:31-32, Psalm 95:8, Hebrews 3:7-15, 1 John 1:1)
Pray and test every spirit.
(1 Corinthians 12:3, 1 John 4:1-5, Hebrews 4:16, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Colossians 4:2)
Cleanse our life of sin, which is transgression of the law.
(Psalm 51:10, 1 John 1:8-9, Psalm 119:9,11, Matthew 7:21-23)

 APPROACHING BATTLE

DO NOT approach battle unless you KNOW Yahshua and keep the commandments.  ALL sin is ground for the enemy.  Anytime you see that you have sinned, REPENT SWIFTLY!
(Act 19:13-16, Matthew 3:2)

Say Daily Prayers
AND
YHWH, please let me stand in the gap (Ezekiel 22:30-31) for ____ and fight for him/her so that his eyes will be opened and he will be freed from demonic bondage so that he can see his need for the commandments of YHWH and the testimony of Yahshua Jesus.
YHWH, please let me stand in the gap for ____ and fight for him/her to free them from this sickness, oppression, etc.
(2 Corinthians 4:3-4, Isaiah 58:6, Galatians 6:2, John 15:13)

When standing in the gap, DO NOT ACCEPT anything that the enemy throws at you.  If you become suddenly ill, YHWH rebuke this _____ illness, pain, etc, in the name of Yahshua.
(Matthew 12:15, Luke 4:40, Luke 6:19, Matthew 15:30, Zechariah 3:2, Jude 1:9)

IN BATTLE

Do not enter battle unless you are certain that THIS is YHWH’s will.  YHWH will not always direct you to proceed.  Perhaps you need backup, more information, perhaps it is someone else’s battle, perhaps you have unrepented sin in your camp and must deal with it first. (Numbers 14:42, Deu 1:42, Joshua 7, Mat 17:21, Mark 6:7, Ecc 4:10)

Say Daily Prayers

You may quietly, but aloud, pray for guidance, pray for the area and people to be surrounded by angels, binding of evil spirits in and around (you will not be able to cast out spirits IN them, but you can ask YHWH to make them be silent), pouring of the holy spirit upon you and the armor of god on you to be on/strengthened.

DO NOT let the enemy speak and if they do speak DO NOT believe ANYTHING they say.  YHWH silence this spirit! Be silent in the name of Yahshua!
(Luk 4:41, Luke 9:55, Matthew 17:18)

When you feel you are losing, too weak, tired, etc PRAISE YHWH! Verbally praise YHWH. Thank Him for your blessings, His laws, His son, His mercies, His right rulings.
(Psalm 22:3, Rev 5:8, Psalm 150:1-6)

DELIVERANCE

If and when the person is able to speak, confirm and make them SPEAK ALOUD that they believe in the bible, in the son of God and His sacrifice for our sins.  Make them speak aloud that they want Yahshua Jesus to be their God (master and commander) and Saviour (perfect sacrifice, not to be trampled).
I believe in the word of God made flesh and ask Yahshua Jesus to be my God and Saviour.
(Romans 10:9, Luke 12:8, 1 Timothy 6:12, 1 John 4:15, Romans 10:10)

Person being delivered must
Confess ALL sins and break all bonds. Doorways include all communication with spirits (false religions, witchcraft, ouija, yoga, meditation, hypnotism, divining, drug use)(Exo 20:3, Lev 19:31), blood (blood drinking, acupuncture, cutting of self, others, including animals, suicide attempts, abortion, murder, hatred)(Deu 12:16, Leviticus 17:10-14, Exo 20:13, 1 John 3:15, Matthew 5:21-22), sex (all sexual encounters other than with spouse within marriage, including pornography, masturbation at the deprivation of your spouse [sexual idolatry])(Lev 18:7-20, Gal 5:19, Eph 5:3, 1Th 4:3).  This includes actions taken by the person and against the person.
I repent of _________ and ask that YHWH break those strongholds, bind them and cast them out, shut and seal those doors with the blood of Yahshua.
In the name of Yahshua I ask that YHWH bind the spirit of ______ and cast them out.  I DO NOT WANT THEM in my life.
(1 John 1:9, James 5:16, Proverbs 28:13, James 4:8, Psalm 32:5, Acts 3:19)

While they make these declarations you continuously praise YHWH and Yahshua and His word and His Torah and ask Him to be RIGHT THERE with you and listening for Him to guide the situation. (Psalm 22:3, Rev 5:8, Psalm 150:1-6)

 DISCIPLESHIP

You have helped them remove demonic bondage in their lives.  You must do your best to help them REMAIN FREE in Christ. Keep them accountable.
(Matthew 28:18-20, Matthew 5:14-16, Titus 2:1-8, Proverbs 27:17)

The enemy WILL come back and try to get back in. BE READY!!! Be VIGILANT!
(Matthew 12: 43-45, 1 Peter 5:8-10, Proverbs 4:23, Deuteronomy 4:9)

Now to grow in Christ and remain free from future bondage…

They must commit daily. We are slaves to righteousness or slaves to sin.
(Jos 24:15, Deu 11:26, Deu 30:15, Lam 3:22-23, Romans 6:15-23, Matthew 6:24)
Read and submit to the word. His word is life.
(John 8:31-32, Psalm 95:8, Hebrews 3:7-15, 1 John 1:1)
Pray and test every spirit.
(1 Corinthians 12:3, 1 John 4:1-5, Hebrews 4:16, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Colossians 4:2)
Cleanse their life of sin, transgression of the law.
(Psalm 51:10, 1 John 1:8-9, Psalm 119:9,11, Matthew 7:21-23)

Is Yahshua YHWH?

These are the scriptures that I believe point to Yahshua Jesus being equally YHWH, with The Father and with the Holy Spirit.  Existing before all of creation with the Father and the Holy Spirit.  ALL things being created thru, for and by Him.  The ENTIRE Bible having one and only ONE focal point. And that is Yahshua Jesus, beginning to end.

I believe it is like a family.

Father, Mother, Son, YHWH being their name, much as our last names today.
The entire gospel is then revealed to be the search for a bride worthy of the beloved son. (Genesis 24)

Those who have a child... consider WHAT is your focal point, in everything you do? How much do you desire them to find someone worthy to share their life and love with?  What would you do for them?

This list of bible scriptures is not in any particular order as I am just taking them from my reading notes as I find them.  I will add to the list as I find them.  Some of them are listed together as the new testament quotes the old and gives further understanding.

If We Confess Our Sins

For those who are are struggling to purify ourselves before the coming Day of the Lord.

I have shared my current battle with illness recently.  Like war, I have to gird myself daily, make sure I put on every defense I have at my hand, and use every weapon that I can find.

And in the midst of it I felt miserably sorry for myself and was not being peaceable in my home.  I knew what I needed. To be alone with HIM, to get centered, to submit to Him and allow Him to show me His perspective. I needed Him to set me on the clear path.

So I went out and sat under a tree and said my daily prayers and then just cried.

"Why? I am trying so hard and walking the very best I know how and seeking to walk better every day.  WHY?"

(Like I said, self pity.  Shameful.)

I have shared with you that I am battling Candida, which is a natural occurring yeast in our bodies.  In it's proper place it helps our bodies digest sugar.  But a few things encourage it out of it's proper place.  Antibiotics, Immune Deficiencies, Mercury Fillings, Cancer, Diabetes.

And Contraceptives.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/4162170

19 years ago I lived in sin.  And I used contraceptives for two years.  In these two years my life sort of fell apart.  The man I loved, Aaron de Bruyn, dumped me.  I gained about 60lbs. I was terribly depressed.

Which led me to Christ!  I began to learn the word and began to walk, like a newborn baby.  I quit the pills.

My health just got worse. I didn't have cycles for upto a year at a time.  The doctor told me that I would never be able to have children.  She said if I did not drastically change my diet I would die.

She recommended Atkins Controlled Carb.  So I did it. And I lost the weight.  It too was a battle.  But eventually... I put down my armor and my weapons. And I gained it all back, and some.

Now YHWH was truly with me.  He brought my love back into my arms. He brought my love to Christ. He gave us 5 beautiful babies. He gave us a safe and loving home. He gave us fruit trees and chickens and gardens and too many animals.  He filled our lives with JOY.

But inside of me, Candida remained and grew and grew.

"WHY?!"

And YHWH said,

Rom 1:26-27
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even
-their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:-
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and
-receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.-

I had long known that this verse was not just about homosexuality, but the willingness of both the man and the woman to accept YHWH's will for the 'natural use'.
http://aboverubies.org/index.php/2013-11-12-17-55-51/english-language/breastfeeding/322-breastfeeding-gods-way

To conceive.
To nurse.
To raise.
To teach.

Our fruit.

19 years ago, I rejected the natural use.
19 years ago, I received in my body the recompence of my error.

And even though I turned from it, I NEVER admitted that it was a sin in itself.  I never, out loud, repented and bound it and cast it away from me. YHWH blessed my walking in obedience, abundantly.

But it still lived in me, all this time.

EVERY single sin leaves an open door to the enemy.  Every single sin that is not repented of AND confessed gives the enemy a foothold in your life.


When YHWH said these words to me, I didn't feel sorry for myself anymore, because I got my just meet. I confessed. And the painful wound was cauterized.

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

To Cleanse - To CAUTERIZE

I share this to encourage you, SEARCH yourselves constantly.


1 Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:


May YHWH richly bless you. Shalom!

Cleaning Out The Leaven - With Candida Albicans

I have been ill for... wow, almost 3 years straight now. Recently it got to the point that I was experiencing severe pain and could not eat. The drs threw some pain pills my way, but no answers.

Fortunately I went to THE DOCTOR, our wonderful creator God, YHWH Raffa.

He led me to research, research, research.

And the other night he gave me one word, "Candida." Could that seriously be what's happening?

I found very recent studies connecting exactly my experiences with candida. I found the terrifying consequences if it wasn't dealt with immediately. I found clear and straightforward directions how to beat it back and conquer it.

I laid this out before my Doctor, who began skeptically, but as I continued laying it out, had to conclude that it was indeed what was happening, and I was on the right path to deal with it.

It puts a new perspective on "Clean out all the leaven."

I hope NONE of you have these experiences and that if you too suffer from candida, this information helps you beat it back before it gets so out of hand.

Guest Blog - The Christian Faith is a Counterfeit Belief.

The Christian Faith is a Counterfeit Belief.
They are NOT true believers in the Most High.

There is a Noticeable difference between a Christian and A TRUE BELIEVER. Attention Span…

There is a reason if you go to a Christian Church that the Pastor at the beginning of his sermon only reads 2 or 3 bible verses. Anything more than that, and you lose them, like a deer standing in the road staring at the headlights. Where as a True believer hungers for More, More, More of the Fathers Word, can’t seem to get enough.

From my own personal experiences, and I am sure others have experienced this also, Christians get this Glazed over look on their faces as soon as you start to get into what they call “to deep”. I have been in a church and when the sermon was over the people sitting around me would say, “Wow, wasn’t the pastors message so filled with meat?” … And I am sitting there wondering, “What Meat, that wasn’t even water, let alone milk?”

I am talking about this because most Christians will get lost with-in the first page, if I haven't lost them already. All they want and desire in their heart is to have their ears tickled, the Microwave messages that makes them feel good.

2Timothy 4:3 For a time will be when they will not endure sound doctrine, but they will heap up teachers to themselves according to their own lusts, tickling the ear.

Let us first see who is Wise.

Proverbs 9:8 Do Not correct a fool or he will hate you. Correct a Wise Man and he will Appreciate you.
Ezekiel 33:9 “If you warn the wicked of his way to turn from it and he does not turn from his way, then he will die in his iniquity - but you have saved your soul.”

There is a misconception that some Christians evolve into Hebrew Roots or Messianic believers. This is NOT TRUE. Christians are not true believers in anyway. Yes, some may practice some of the truths found in Scriptures, but they as a religion are 100% counterfeit. If a Christian or believer from any other Faith becomes a Hebrew or Messianic, it is not an evolution from one faith to another, it is a conversion to The Way.

Lets do some reasoning together shall we.

What should be the Core foundation of a TRUE BELIEVER?

First and Foremost, to seek the Father with your heart, mind and soul.

So, How do you do that? Let us see what the Messiah Himself says.

John 14:15 If you love Me, keep My commandments.

John 14:23 Jesus answered and said to him, If a man loves Me, he will keep My Word. And My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode with him.

John 14:24 He who does not love Me does not keep My Words, and the Word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father's who sent Me.

John 15:10 If you keep My commandments, you shall abide in My love, even as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love.

IF = Conditional http://www.dictionary.com/browse/if?s=t
conjunction
1. in case that; granting or supposing that; on condition that: Sing if you want to. Stay indoors if it rains. I'll go if you do.
2. even though: an enthusiastic if small audience.
3. whether: He asked if I knew Spanish.
4. (used to introduce an exclamatory phrase): If only Dad could see me now!
5. when or whenever: If it was raining, we had to play inside.
noun
6. a supposition; uncertain possibility: The future is full of ifs.
7. a condition, requirement, or stipulation: There are too many ifs in his agreement.

Here is the deal and Mr. And Mrs. Christian you really need to pay close attention to this. The Previous verses are the Words of the Messiah Himself. He States “IF” you love Him. Read it for yourself, If you Love Him, You will KEEP His Commandments. Don’t go and try to say something very stupid and ignorant like He said there are only TWO Commandments He said we have to keep. Your only embarrassing yourself with that ignorant statement.

The Great Commandment
Mat 22:34 But hearing that He had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees were gathered together. :35 Then one of them, a lawyer, asked, tempting Him and saying, :36 Master, which is the great commandment in the Law? :37 Jesus said to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. :38 This is the first and great commandment. :39 And the second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself. :40 On these two commandments hang (SUM UP) all the Law and the Prophets.
Mat_19:17 And He said to him, Why do you call Me good? There is none good but one, that is, God. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments.

Joh_14:21 He who has My commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves Me. And he who loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will reveal Myself to him.
John 15:4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. :5 I am the Vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. :6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered. And they gather and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. :7 If you abide in Me, and My Words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done to you. :8 In this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit, so you shall be My disciples.
Joh 15:9 As the Father has loved Me, so I have loved you; continue in My love. :10 If you keep My commandments, you shall abide in My love, even as I have kept My Father's commandments and abide in His love. :11 I have spoken these things to you so that My joy might remain in you and your joy might be full.

1Jn_1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. :7 But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

1Jn_2:6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk even as He walked.

2Jn_1:6 And this is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, as you heard from the beginning, that you should walk in it.

For those Christians who say and teach the Law, Commandments have been done away with or Nailed to the Cross. You are a liar and the truth is not found in you. You are actually calling the Messiah Himself a liar by that ignorant statement.

Mat 5:17 Do not think that I have come to destroy (DO AWAY WITH) the Law or the Prophets. I have not come to destroy but to fulfill (FULFILL DOES NOT MEAN DONE AWAY WITH). :18 For truly I say to you, Till the heaven and the earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall in any way pass from the Law until all is fulfilled. :19 Therefore whoever shall relax one of these commandments, the least, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of Heaven. But whoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of Heaven.

FULFILL G4137
πληρόω
plēroō
play-ro'-o
From G4134; to make replete, that is, (literally) to cram (a net), level up (a hollow), or (figuratively) to furnish (or imbue, diffuse, influence), satisfy, execute (an office), finish (a period or task), verify (or coincide with a prediction), etc.: - accomplish, X after, (be) complete, end, expire, fill (up), fulfil, (be, make) full (come), fully preach, perfect, supply.

Fulfill http://www.dictionary.com/browse/fulfill?s=t
verb (used with object)
1. to carry out, or bring to realization, as a prophecy or promise.
2. to perform or do, as duty; obey or follow, as commands.
3. to satisfy (requirements, obligations, etc.):
a book that fulfills a long-felt need.
4. to bring to an end; finish or complete, as a period of time:
5. to develop the full potential of (usually used reflexively):

As in time, It can be to bring to an end, but not as a action…

He Literally came to show us how to live by the LAW, and remember, He said the Law is NOT a Burden. Or do you wish to call the Messiah a liar again?

Then there is the Christians who wish to quote Paul all the time. Was Paul equal to the Messiah? Was he equal to the Father in Heaven? Did Paul have the authority to do away with any of the LAWS of the Father and His Messiah?

Rom 3:31 The Scriptures 1998+ (31) Do we then nullify the Torah through the belief? Let it not be! On the contrary, we establish the Torah.1 Footnote: 1See 7:12.

Rom 7:7 The Scriptures 1998+ What, then, shall we say? Is the Torah sin? Let it not be! However, I did not know sin except through the Torah. For also the covetousness I knew not if the Torah had not said, “You shall not covet.”

Rom 7:12 The Scriptures 1998+ So that the Torah truly is set-apart, and the command set-apart, and righteous, and good.

Rom 7:22 The Scriptures 1998+ For I delight in the Torah of Elohim1 according to the inward man, Footnote: 1Ps. 119:16. (Remember, the outward man is sinful, but the inward man is spiritual and without sin if we abide in Him and His Torah, i.e. our sins are forgiven)
Rom 7:23 The Scriptures 1998+ but I see another law in my members, (My Body) battling against the Torah of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. (Sin is in the flesh)

Rom 7:25 The Scriptures 1998+ Thanks to Elohim, through יהושע Messiah our Master! So then, with the mind I myself truly serve the Torah of Elohim, but with the flesh the law of sin. (The Law convicts our sin or flesh, not our spirit. It is a good thing to be convicted of sin so we can strive not to be in sin, think about it.)

Rom 8:4 The Scriptures 1998+ so that the righteousness of the Torah should be completed in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

Rom 8:7 The Scriptures 1998+ Because the mind of the flesh is enmity towards Elohim, for it does not subject itself1 to the Torah of Elohim2, (Who is the “Elohim” being referred to here? Answer: The Father) neither indeed is it able, Footnotes: 1 Or does not obey. 2John 15:5, 1 John 4:4, 1 John 3:9, 1 John 5:18.

Rom 9:31-33 The Scriptures 1998+ but Yisra’ĕl following after the Torah of righteousness, has not arrived at the Torah of righteousness. (32) Why? Because it was not of belief, but as by works of Torah. For they stumbled at the Stone of stumbling. (33) As it has been written, “See, I lay in Tsiyon a Stone of stumbling and a Rock that makes for falling, and everyone who is believing on Him shall not be put to shame.”

Rom 10:4 The Scriptures 1998+ For Messiah is the goal1 of the ‘Torah unto righteousness’ to everyone who believes. Footnote: 1 Or end purpose; not termination.

Rom 10:5 The Scriptures 1998+ For Mosheh writes about the righteousness which is of the Torah, “The man who does these shall live by them.”

Rom 13:8 The Scriptures 1998+ Owe no one any matter except to love one another, for he who loves another has filled the Torah.

Rom 13:10 The Scriptures 1998+ Love does no evil to a neighbour. Therefore, love is completion of the Torah.

Go ahead, show your ignorance, post those other Scriptures you feel Paul is saying we are not under the Law or the Law has been done away with. Go ahead… Do you really think Paul would contradict the teachings of the Messiah Himself? Really?

How can you trust anything Paul teaches if as you teach that Paul said we are not under the Law when the Messiah Himself said the Law would NEVER be done away with? Are you really so willfully Ignorant to the truth? Really?

Let me make this clear; Paul would be very upset with the Christian Church today. It is NOT what he was trying to make it into in his time. He would not recognize any of what the Christian Church teaches today and would be equally upset that you as Christians are Slandering his name and what he painstakingly taught. You take virtually everything he taught out of context. He would be today saying, “You said I said what?”

Paul in no way, if you read him in context, ever contradicts any of what is taught by the Messiah Himself. It is ONLY the Christians who take what he taught out of context. Shame on you… The Father calls you an abomination in His eyes to misrepresent what is truth with a lie. Read Proverbs if you don’t believe me. I'm not going to do all the work for you.

Some people say Christians are Believers…

Believers in what? See now that is the question! Christians are no more true believers than that of Muslims or Buddhists. It is not a matter of just growing and becoming a Hebrew. Christians will be the ones the Messiah will say to I never knew you to. It is not a matter of evolution to become Hebrews, they are not even part of the family, in fact they distort and destroy the truth. They are the enemy to the truth because they rewrite scriptures and take everything out of context. They cause people to follow a lie and actually cause people to go to hell. It is this important.

Actual conversation:
Based on one of my posts where I had stated Christians practice Paganism. This person unfriended me after my response.

(Christian) the CHURCH is not pagan, they are believers who have a few pagan traditions the same as the HR and Messy

(ME) Actually and factually, the Christian church is 100% pagan. They do not teach what the Messiah taught, their message doesn't line up with scriptures and they practice ALL of the pagan holidays, if they walk like a duck, quack like a duck, well, they are a duck.

This is not trying to be mean or unloving, it is a factual observation of what they do and teach.

The Christian church would kick the Messiah out telling Him He doesn't know what He is talking about, as well as Paul.

This person unfriended me after reading my response. Oh Well, I don’t have time to play games and hold every-ones hands. This does not mean I do not love them or feel a loss in my heart, it simply means if someone rejects the truth, I am to wash my hands and go on to find someone who is actually hungry for the truth. It is not my job to get anyone saved, I am only to plant the seeds and let the Father water and do the Harvest. Anything else is making myself more important than I really am.

Now let us consider what Paul said in Colossians, shall we?

Col 2:8-17 Beware lest anyone rob you through philosophy and vain deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the elements of the world, and not according to Christ. (9) For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. (10) And you are complete in Him, who is the Head of all principality and power, (11) in whom also you are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ, (12) buried with Him in baptism, in whom also you were raised through the faith of the working of God, raising Him from the dead. (13) And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, (14) blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and has taken it out of the way, nailing it to the cross. (15) Having stripped rulers and authorities, He made a show of them publicly, triumphing over them in it. (16) Therefore let no one judge you in food or in drink, or in respect of a feast, or of the new moon, or of the sabbaths. (17) For these are a shadow of things to come, but the body is of Christ.

Notice in verse 16 Paul says let no one judge you. Now let us take a minute and think about this. Paul has stated several times that he was a teacher to the Gentiles, right? Now as some have said and taught, he "Paul" was saying not to let any Jews judge you, this is implying that they were Jews Paul is talking to here, but it is very clear that Paul was talking to Gentiles when you read all of the text here. So, if Paul is talking to Gentiles, who would be judging the Gentile believers? Answer: Other Gentiles... These Gentiles started keeping the Torah, the Commandments of the Father and Paul was saying do not let them Judge you, don't let them turn you back to your OLD GENTILE ways that DID NOT have these practices. The fact that Paul was talking to Pagan Gentiles can be verified with any honest research, do take my word for it, look it up...
Furthermore, notice in verse 17, These are Shadows of things to come, if He had taught we did not need to keep the Fathers Commandments, Feast Days and Festivals, that all of these had been done away with, then just why would he be saying these are Shadows of things to come? That would not make any sense, but rather, Paul was saying we do need to keep The Fathers Instructions, His Commandments, which includes keeping the Sabbath, Feast Days, and Festivals. As for the New Moons, this is again in the Commandments of the Father and it is how we are instructed to know when these days are to be kept.

Here is a very powerful and moving thought… The Law was not the covenant that the Father made with His people; it is the result of the covenant or the evidence of the covenant. So, if the Law was and is not the covenant, what was it or what is it, “The Covenant”? Therefore, as we read in what is called the New Testament were the Messiah says, “If you love me, keep my Commandments”, it would mean that by keeping the Torah, the Law, His Commandments, we then are grafted into His covenant with His people, and by keeping His Torah, it is the evidence that we love Him and are His people.

Loyalty to the Father is doing His will, and His will is for us to be in His covenant, and to be in His covenant, we are obligated to keep His Torah. So how can anyone ever say the Torah has been done away with? Without Torah living, there is no evidence of our salvation and of our love for Him, and therefore there is not any covenant of any kind. We are doomed for a forever death without His Torah, and so, keeping His Torah is a sign that we are saved by His grace and as a sign that we Love Him, and that He loves us as well by His death for our sins. This is the Covenant…

The Devil would have us believe that following the Fathers Instructions is legalism. Rubbish! It is the only way to salvation through the Messiah. If the Father has, giving us His Instructions because He cares for us, His Children, on how to live a holy and healthy life, just why would the church teach that it is legalism? His Instructions are to help, not to burden us! When we have a child that is still young, and that child reaches for a pan of boiling water, do not we as parents instruct them, sometimes through discipline, not to reach for it because it is harmful to them, and we are looking out for them and protecting them? How is what the Father has done for us in His instructions, “The Torah”, any different? His Instructions certainly are not legalism, that is just the title the Devil has spread to cause us not to obey the Father.

John 14:15 If ye love me, KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS.

John 14:21 He that hath MY COMMANDMENTS, and KEEPTH them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of MY Father, and I will love him, and will manifest MYSELF to him.

John 15:10 If ye KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, ye shall abide in MY love; even as I have kept MY Father's COMMANDMENTS, and abide in his love.

He said if you love Him, to keep His Commandments. What else do we need to know? He stated that we need to keep His Commandments. I personally cannot understand how anyone can read / change what He said into we do not need to keep His Commandments or even just part of them. He never said that we were not under the Law. So, anything contrary to His teachings come for the Devil and are all lies.

Notice in John 15:10, Yeshua states He Keeps His Fathers Commandments and He abides in His love, so, you need to ask yourself one simple question, “What would Jesus do”? Answer: He kept the Fathers Commandments. Therefore, we should do the same… No mention of some sort of New Law. Nothing had been done away with or nailed to the cross. The Good News of His message was, He came and died so we would not be under the “Condemnation” of the Law if we choose to be in His covenant by keeping His Laws. That He, the one and only true Elohim lived and walked among us and He stripped away the man-made laws that was added to the Torah in direct disobedience to the instructions of the Father.

So once again, I must ask, “What would Jesus do”? Answer: He kept the Fathers Commandments. Therefore, we should do the same…

1John2:6 … to walk, even as He walked.

Proverbs 28:9 If one turns away his ear from hearing the Torah, even his prayer is an abomination.

From a Hebrew way of thinking, Hearing is Doing. Torah = Law = Commandments

Seventh Year Sabbath

THE YEAR OF RELEASE

Leviticus 25:2-4, “. . . then shall the land keep a Sabbath unto Yahweh. Six years thou shalt sow thy field, six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in the fruit thereof: But in the seventh year it shall be a Sabbath of rest unto the land, a Sabbath for Yahweh: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard.”

"Continuing and expanding our understanding further, there is still much more to the Fourth Commandment as it extends far beyond its weekly or annual significance. It offers us liberty when understood and obeyed properly as it does, in fact, have real world significance.

The Sabbath of years, a multiple annual cycle of time, reveals yet an even deeper understanding of Yahweh’s perfect system of time. In its simplicity, it is patterned after the weekly and annual cycles.
Just as Yahweh established the seven day cycle we know and identify as the week, with the seventh in that cycle designated for rest, so it is with the Sabbath of years.

The weekly Sabbath simply reflects what takes place in other cycles of time. Remember, a blessing was placed in the Sabbath command. There’s something special about Sabbath that prepares His people to be given even greater gifts, and even greater blessings.

Keeping the Sabbath, including its all encompassing system of time, is a formal acknowledgement and acceptance of Yahweh’s Covenant. It’s a physical recognition of our part of the contract by which we choose to abide. He says, “I will be your Elohim, you will be My people.” Meaning Yahweh will give us direction and we will be His instruments for the fulfillment of His plan. “. . . Keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath . . .for a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel for ever. . .” Exodus 31:16-17

Just as we are commanded to work six days and rest the seventh, so it is with the land. The land was also commanded to be given rest. Every seventh year, according to His appointed time, is to be a complete year of rest. All debts are to be canceled and the land is to lie fallow. His people, those who followed His Law knew and prepared properly, putting up stores to provide for themselves and their family for the year(s) in which the land should rest and they could not plant. This seventh year was called the year of release!

Once again, the seventh year is called the “Year of Release”. Debts are canceled, crops are not planted. Take a break! Have a great vacation. Take a whole year off! Spend time with your family and loved ones, enjoying what has been created and designed for you.

The only reason you can’t do this today is because you are following other systems of time. These systems, as a function of their design, are meant to keep you in bondage. There are no blessings in lies, only in the truth. You can’t expect the blessings of the Sabbath if you are not obeying the Sabbath. It just doesn’t work that way!

The word Sabbatical originates from the root word, Sabbath meaning a period of rest that recurs in regular cycles such as a Sabbatical year or leave.

If you still consider yourself a Scripturally based “Christian” then consider an honest answer to this question:

Q. If you are over the age of seven, when was the last time you celebrated the year of release when all debts were cancelled?

The Fourth Commandment tells us to “Remember the Sabbath.” It’s the only commandment that starts with the word remember and the only one that deals with time. Could it really be that important to remember? You be the judge. . .

Leviticus 26: 27-35, “And if ye will not for all this hearken unto Me, but walk contrary unto Me; then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins. And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat. (famines will be great) And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast your carcasses upon the carcasses of your idols, (your sun gods, pagan gods, statues and images) and My soul shall abhor you. And I will make your cities waste, and bring your sanctuaries unto desolation, and I will not smell the savor of your sweet odors. (He will not accept our sacrifices) And I will bring the land into desolation: and your enemies which dwell therein shall be astonished at it. And I will scatter you among the heathen, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste. THEN SHALL THE LAND ENJOY HER SABBATHS, as long as it lieth desolate, and ye be in your enemies’ land; even then shall the land rest, and enjoy her Sabbaths. As long as it lieth desolate it shall rest; because it did not rest in your Sabbaths, (your selected times of worship and rest) When ye dwelt upon it.”

Strong words! . . . either obey or get evicted.

Another record of blessings or curses based on obedience or disobedience is found in Deuteronomy 28. Read the whole chapter. Verses 1-14 tells you of the blessings. Verse 15 to the end tells of the curses. When you read it, consider our society today and see which portion you feel we align with.
Time is not in our control or Satan’s. The sun, the moon, the stars all function whether we are here or not. Although Yahweh is longsuffering for our sake, the consequences of our continued disobedience has a cumulative effect, definitely not to our advantage.

“The love of money is the root of all evil” I Tim 6:10

Do the Churches love to collect money? Don’t they call for it over and over again? Yet, do they ever teach about the year of release, the year in which all debts are cancelled? If not, then why not?
The Scriptures tell us to not charge usury (interest) or take usury; and to let no one, other than a brother rule over us.

How many churches have mortgages and bank accounts? They call themselves “Christian?” It is totally unscriptural to participate in interest as it is always tied to some form of bondage. What part of scripture don’t they understand?

If no interest were charged on your mortgage you could pay it off in five to seven years rather than twenty five or thirty. What could you do with that extra money instead of giving it to the banks? Maybe
buy a boat, a new car, a second home or provide your children a true education? The fact remains, you wouldn’t have to work as hard and you could spend more time with your family enjoying the freedom you were given.

If you followed these principles you could easily enjoy a Sabbatical year, a whole year off in the seventh year, the year of release, “the Sabbath of years.” The Scriptural system of law and time is sound, and solid as a Rock. It is the ROCK of a solid foundation upon which your faith and actions should be built. On what have you placed your foundation?

A basic teaching of Scripture is that “to whom much is given, much is required.” Churches were given responsibility to care for and teach the people properly so that they would prosper as a society. As they prospered under His guidance and Laws, Yahweh would get the glory. Unfortunately, that’s not what has happened. Their misdirected, pious, self centered, self serving attitudes have brought society to the brink of disaster. The truth as well as The Law Giver Himself are discredited by them before the universe. Malachi 3:9 tells us, “Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed Me, even this whole nation.”

The ignorant clergy claim that this text speaks to the issue of money and not giving to the Church as they regard tithes but IT DOES NOT as the following verse tells us to “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, so that there may be FOOD in Mine house…” This is a clear reference to the preparation necessary to honor the year of release, which robs Yahweh of His glory by keeping we, His people in bondage by not cancelling debts as He commands.

YEAR OF RELEASE

Astronaut Gene Cernan, the last man to ever stand on the moon, has died at age 82.

Praying for the Unrepentant Man or Woman


Many of us, in our daily walk, know those who do not revere YHWH, His word, and His path for our lives. They can be scornful, rude, dismissive, or angry. They can seem like a bricked up wall, with no way to get in.
It is not just a matter of 'hearing' the word. They may have been told, more than once, that God's word says, "This" and they should consider, "This." They may ignore it, or they may mock it.

Our own hearts can be jealously angry for our God! Praying "Smite them!" may easily come to our minds. Reading the Psalms, we know that this can have a place in our hearts and prayers.

But we are still called to blow the trumpets, warn the sinners, be a hedge of protection, and fight evil.

Remember the words of Paul in Eph 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Consider that this person is NOT the enemy. Consider that this person is in fact surrounded by the enemy (that brick wall) and cannot see clearly, hear clearly, and cannot WALK in the way of righteousness. And they are now 'destined' to die in their sins and face eternal damnation.

They could have found themselves in this situation by willful sin, allowing evil spirits to have control over their lives. Or they could be purely victims, under strong generational curses, or childhood abuses that made them vulnerable to this spiritual bondage and attack.

HOW do we stand against this?

Eph 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

We fight against spiritual beings and powers, not physical. We pray.

Putting on the armor of God. Binding the spirits in our own lives and presence. Standing in the gap for our fellow, fallen man or woman. Begging the scales (that blinding serpent again) be removed. Praying that for the GLORY OF YAH, this person can see truly and be given a real and clear opportunity to make a choice of their own for good.

And praying that they take it.

Heb 10:31
It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Eph 6:13
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Throw Out Those 'Old Tapes'


I heard a phrase the other day, a woman who said her emotional troubles were caused by playing 'old tapes'. She was referring to the things she had been told, by herself and others, long ago. Recordings of lies that followed her to this moment in time and were standing between her and truth.

How many of us have old tapes playing?

I recall a visitor watching me sort laundry, who said, "I was such a great mom, I didn't even have to look at the size tags to know whose was whose." Maybe they weren't meaning to insult me, maybe they were. But ever since, when I sort laundry, THAT tape is playing. WHY? When I was a little girl I would sort and fold laundry WITH JOY, day dreaming about doing this for MY family. My husband. My children. JOY. Humming and smiling the whole time. WHY are these words in my ears now?

And this is hardly the only tape I've been carrying around with me!

I don't entirely know how to throw out these old tapes. But from now on I intend to recognize them as what they are. The enemy's tapes that he wants me to listen to. And I intend to stand against them.

In the words of one of my wise little men, "YHWH break the words of the enemy. And THROW THEM AWAY."

These tapes are destructive and damaging. They take something that can give joy, such as sorting laundry for my family and ruining it. They can wedge themselves into relationships, family, friends, neighbors. They can push dreams down until they don't float in our hopes anymore.

Join me and STAND AGAINST the lies that the enemy is dragging around after you.

Those old tapes are just lies. Throw them away and make more room for the Joy of the Lord in our lives!
