Your Sunday Bread: The Key Word is to “Abide!

Once, we have heard truth we must stay with it! Not an easy way, because in this we see that we must give up some stuff. However, to get back to covenant with Yah, to re-enter the marriage we have to give up our whoring hearts. Sounds harsh, doesn’t it? The fact that Yahuwah calls us whores and adulterers but this is exactly what we need to hear.

hebrews making bricksLook at this, Once saved, always saved is the word given by religion. Yes, we can all enter the gate with smelling and looking like whores; that is the world. Not so, because the truth says, “Enter through the narrow gate! Because the gate is wide–and the way is broad–that leads to destruction and there are many who enter through it. Because the gate is narrow and the way hard pressed which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” (Matthew 7:13-15). The text goes on to tell us about the false prophets and wolves, which many can’t seem to believe have tricked us.

Oh my goodness, but Yes, beloved we have been tricked into thinking that we follow the narrow gate; when in fact, there are millions of people on the road of destruction…chasing prosperity, quick fixes and organized religion. Idol worship!

But here is truth, John 15 saying, “I am the true vine and My Father is the gardener. Every branch in Me that bears no fruit He takes away. And every branch that bears fruit he prunes, so that it bears more fruit. You are already clean because of the Word which I have spoken to you. Stay in Me and I stay in you. As the branch is unable to of itself, unless it stays in the vine, so neither you, unless you Stay in Me. ”

Now, the question comes; who does he speak to?

Knowing who we are is key here. We hear sermon after sermon, lesson upon lesson speaking of the Israelites; however, then they say as Christians we should do as the Israelites; or rather not do as the Israelites. This can be confusing, why don’t we just settle this thing once and for all. I am an Israelite, born into the Royal Priesthood, hence, what the word speaks it is for me, it is me he speaks to. Not as a Christian but as one chosen to find the narrow gate.

Get this, it matters whether or not we can see ourselves and know ISRAEL that this word is written for YOU.

Yahshua says, “I was not sent, except for the lost sheep of Israel.” (Matthew 15). So it would behoove us to know who we are to get this word.

The world would have us believe (has done a good job with it) that we are gentiles, and that the “lost sheep” are missing. Truth is “lost” in this instance is “lost minds.” We don’t think very much of Yah when we believe that he would actually let his beloved go. No, we were lost alright to us, not knowing who we are where we come from and dependent on others for that information, but Yah has always know where we are, who we are, what we are, where we belong.

So, it matters the identity that we cast off Christianity, cultism, and pick up truth. You are Royal Priests and Priestesses, even though we don’t look like it. hebrews

Look at this Yahuwah says,”the First and the Last, who became dead, and came to life: “I know your works, and pressure, and poverty – yet you are rich – and the blasphemy of those who say they are Yehuḏim and are not, but are a congregation of Satan. “Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. See, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, in order to try you, and you shall have pressure ten days. Be trustworthy until death, and I shall give you the crown of life. “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. He who overcomes shall by no means be harmed by the second death.” (Revelations 2:9-11).

It pays to know who you are. Are you suffering, have you suffered? We must see a bigger picture than what we suffer daily, it is the NATION which Yah speaks of. Are you poverty stricken? I know some of us believe if we have a 1.00 past 2.00 then we are rich, but really who are we kidding we have nothing compared to the vast riches Yah has in store for us. Look at sickness, employment, homelessness, mental illness, prison rates, fatherless, widowed (single mothers), education, and see who suffers most in those. Lets not forget slavery—all found in Deuteronomy (i.e., the curses).true hebrew Israelites

Finally, this word says Repent Israel, and come from among your religious sects; You are not Christian, Methodists, Muslim, Mormon are none of that. You are Yah’s chosen.

Come back Jacob, Come Home! Times-a-wasting

A CALL TO SHAKE THE NATIONS & THE FAMILY

Matthew 10: 33-39

“But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven.

Do not think that I came to bring peace (or even prosperity) on earth; I did not come to bring peace (or even prosperity), but a sword (war with My word of Truth).”

“For I came to set a Man against his Father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter in law against her mother in law; and a man’s enemies will be members of his own household.”

“He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. “And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. “He who has found his life will lose it, and he who has lost his life for My sake will find it.” (Emphasis mine)

Our walk for God isn’t an easy one, because sometimes we have to go places that are not comfortable and that surely make no sense at all. I have read these verses many times and thought that this was a prophecy seeing that Moms and daughters, fathers and sons (alike) sometimes don’t get along well this had come to light. Remembering my own volatile relationship with my mother is probably the reason I thought this way; but this is not what God is saying here at all.

We have some rough stuff dealing with our families don’t we? I have been prepping my 12 year old to love a righteous life, been taking (sometimes dragging) her to church; urging her to read the word. At school encouraging her to stay focused, helping her to prepare her mind for higher learning, talking to her about the best high schools here, and the college she will attend(she has some say in all these), because she has a voice; always encouraging her to make sound decisions for herself. Amen.

So it was surprising when she came home the other day and said, “Mama, I don’t want to go to college when I finish high school!”

This was a surprise because ever since elementary school she had made it known to all who would listen was that she wanted to be a Heart Surgeon, Amen. She has the mind to help people and I can see her in that field. Well, she came home that day and exclaimed to me that she no longer wanted this, because she didn’t like math or school and that she wanted to be a movie star. Unfortunately, I didn’t take this too well, and told her after she had completed college and medical school she could do what she wanted with her life; that she could go to New York and learn to be an actor or whatever it is they do, but that she would have a stable livelihood until this happened for her; she agreed. But the reason she agreed was that I explained how hard it is for actors to break into that business, some of them take jobs like everyone else to survive; and still some never get in. We know that Persistence is key when dealing with our children.

But what about the child that came home one day and told his parents that he/she is gay or lesbian what is there to do in a situation like this? Of course if we are Christians and actually living for God, we know that this type of behavior is not of God…Amen. Many of us are facing this now, and still others have family members who live this life style. Even now some families have been torn apart because the child has felt abandoned and unaccepted because of their choice. What are the parents to do? We love our kids don’t we? This is a hard pill to swallow for any parent, and as a result their children have left their families and cut off all ties. But what does the word say about any sin…

What about our children having sex unmarried? The question now becomes do we trust God and deliver the word without thought that we maybe rejected by our children? What about those of us who allow our children’s or any family member to influence us into giving in to them? I don’t drink so do I allow drinking and drunkenness in my home because they are my children, No! This makes me guilty as if I had done it! If God says it’s wrong to be drunk with wine then why would I allow it in my home? am I going along with them in their drunkenness and other deviant behavior to keep peace? Then I may as well get a glass and share in their folly, because I have denied God’s word in this and allowed it to happen. Wow!

This is not an easy word to see or grasp, because some say that, “whatever they do they will do with or without me!” and they say, “I would rather let them do it here then elsewhere!” Sure we want them to be safe…but what does the word say?

It says, “come from among them!”(and their behavior) It does not say, except when it’s my family. Wow! Sin is sin no matter who does it. We are called to speak the word no matter who it is, but this is where the problems come. Because some of us haven’t been on good behavior in front of our kids and have done some stuff. So in all likelihood we don’t say anything because we don’t want to hear those inevitable words, “You did it!”

But God says, to “be bold and courageous,” So this is where the rubber meets the road.

Bear arms and speak the word….it will save them! Boy, this is a good word for all of us…hope it helps!
