Yah Wants Worship In Spirit and in Truth– Not Rituals!

Wow, this is mind blowing. We should pay close attention to what we hear, see and do from now on. rituals 3

If redeemption equals salvation, then what about being reborn or born again. The two are not the same.

It is no wonder then that we believe or self saved and yet remain undelivered from sinful behavior. Knowing this can break a yoke concerning truth erroneous teaching thereof.

A brief glimpse at redemption and the nature of the rebirth process proves without doubt this is right.

Look at the definitions of the two:

Redemption, is an act of redeeming or atoning for a fault or mistake, or the state of being redeemed. Also note that redemption is a deliverance or a rescue. In theological terms, redemption is deliverance from sin, salvation. Lastly, redemption is atonement for guilt.

We get that, or should get that the above act of grace we can, could, never, redeem ourselves. Elohim sent is one and only begotten Son to save us, period. (John 3:16).

Now Rebirth or reborn which is a new second birth: the rebirth of the soul. A renewed existence, activity, growth, renaissance, or revival.

To be reborn is to have undergone a rebirth.

Consequently, one must note that belief in the Son is all needed to be saved, it is a gift of God, and two we note that to be reborn requires work on our part….it is the case that we are called to work out our own salvation which leads to rebirth…merely exercising belief cannot get us to right thinking.

What kind of work….obedience, faithfulness, courage, long suffering, commitment, adherence to the covenant. Shall I go on? rituals

In AA after we admit we are powerless to help ourselves, and that a Power Greater than ourselves can show us a way out, then we get to work. For those AA buffs, please bear with me I do not know, nor can I remember the steps verbatim, however, I do know what they mean. Thanks for understanding.

Anyway, after the excitement of placing the weight on God where it belongs, we begin to lighten our load even further by doing a personal evaluation of ourselves and admitting wrongs done. This is equal to confession before God and man…they listen you let it all out. (Alcoholics Anonymous, Step 4). (Paraphrased)

This takes work …and there is a continuous seeking of God to help us. Also called, working out our own salvation….according to Paul.

Step (release),step (release), step (release) and finally to a spiritual awakening (Step 12)
These would include making amends, and asking forgiveness. Of course, we must note that not all are willing to forgive us…and keep in mind that in this walk it is not about them for forgiving us, that is their job, just that we make ourselves available and become willing. Well, this helps us to change something about ourselves. What do we think, that we will clean ourselves up and leave destruction and debris all over the place?

Well someone does, and this is the premise of presenting ourselves as a living sacrifice…learning to think soberly which cannot be done with our changing our mind…

Ladies and Gentlemen…pride must go. it kills!

rituals 2
This is good isn’t it? However, at church we don’t get this teaching, because of the shouting and music and all else going on…no one is working on themselves.

I ask, how do we learn how to be a good neighbor with all that junk still inside of us. We are destined to return to that thing that drove us to church looking for help in the first place, and when we meet…we see that those there are worse than we are.

What is rebirth as Yah see it? Lets look at John 3, which is dealing with spirit transformation which Yah says all should worship him in spirit and in truth. How do we do this, when we cannot stop behaving like the pagan world? We cannot.

Yahshuah says,
“For Elohim did not send His Son to Israel to judge the Israel, but that Israel through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not judged, but he who does not believe is judged already, because he has not believed in the Name of the only brought-forth Son of Elohim.”

We have to get this truth…Belief in the true Name is the only way to rebirth in the spirits which leads to renewal of mind and thinking soberly. Be ye transformed?

What we do are rituals and chanting, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, thank you Jesus! Praise you Jesus. Sunday service, Wednesday bible study, choir practice, usher meeting…all rituals. Yah does not require that of you…who are we serving.

Where is Yah…does anyone remember Yah, whose spirit came in the form of flesh to behold death for us? Where is Yah?

Remember, transformation is all about the name…not rituals. 031212-national-easter-voters-black-churches

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.

Your Sunday Bread: No Longer Motherless

psalm 27If my friends forsake me, Yea, even my ma and pa forsake me yet will I praise you Yahuwah! (Psalm 27:10) (Emphasis my own).
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child, in fact, in the natural realm I am without my mother and father. However, in spiritual realm where Yah is I am neither without mother or father. His nature fulfills both roles . We need to grasp these, that is, if Yah has made me female and has fashioned me after his own image then I am not without nurture or guidance. In fact, I am back where I started in beginning when I was with him. So we can see that if the word is truth, then Yah says, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:4-7).
It gets serious when our mothers and fathers forsake us. This is the point that it can get that bad sometimes. No one wants to even think about their mother or father leaving them but as life has it, some have either by death or some other mission of the devil. It’s sink or swim.Amen, Because even though we might walk alone these days we are not forsaken. We can receive wise counsel from the One who made us and knew us before our earthly parents even laid eyes on us. How great is that? Forever I will praise you Yahuwah!Today, let not the righteous of Yah feel forsaken, for you are not.

Your Sunday Bread: Yahweh or the Devil?

God or the devil“Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savor, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:11-15).

These days, it will take a lot more to convince me of someone’s character than them saying “I’m a Christian,” because that ain’t saying nothing if all I see is or hear are lies and conniving schemes against the brethren. I mean it, I have had enough of people saying “God says this and that” but still are doing whatever they want, have tossed out the commandments and do everything opposite of what Yahweh says not to do.

Don’t tell me Ladies and Gentlemen that someone sings in the choir, preaches and teaches, a deacon, and yet can’t keep his hands and eyes off those who aren’t theirs. Please don’t tell me that because it is a lie from the pits of hell.

Don’t come to me saying the Lord says this for me, and you are talking about me behind my back. Can Yahweh speak, would Yahweh speak to someone who cannot honour his Sabbath and keep it holy? I don’t think it is Yahweh, but “Your father the devil.”

I am gonna set my face like flint…this is for those stiff necked to whom the truth comes….those who when I bring the word want to snarl, nash their teeth. That means that you can talk, but I am called to bring truth….run and hide or take heed.

Your Sunday Bread: The House of Israel

Three people in chains, probably somewhere in ...

Three people in chains, probably somewhere in East-Africa. The total number of slaves in early twentieth-century Ethiopia is estimated at between 2 and 4 million in a total population of about 11 million. “#v=onepage&q=&f=false Women and Slavery: Africa, the Indian Ocean world, and the medieval north Atlantic”. Gwyn Campbell, Suzanne Miers, Joseph Calder Miller (2007). Ohio University Press. p.219. ISBN 082141724X (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Ladies and Gentlemen, some of us have been running all our lives trying to fit in with the status quo, longing to be like someone else and even taking on their customs not knowing who we are. Here we are trying to live holy and walk a righteous path mimicking people because we have no root, no stability, no justice.

Justice has come.

Yah says it’s time to come out from among them. We are walking toward newness of life, even now the weight has been lifted just knowing that now we have our identity back. To those who listen this is a powerful message to let you know that Yahweh has not forgotten one hair on your heads.

Speaking of heads…I was led to Matthew 26, where Mary came to where Yeshua was having supper and poured the ointment on his head…this is significant because in this instance…she without knowing it was anointing him for his burial.

How many know that without their HEAD people die, and so it is in this instance that she (the one accused of adultery) was THE CHOSEN to do this wonderful work for the Messiah. Praise Yah everybody your blessing has come. (v. 7, 12)

The oil once poured on the HEAD ran down to his BODY( ye are the chosen and his BODY). Moreover, in saying that ye are his body we seek a more definitive answer for body to get clear vision which notes:

“Body:is used of a (large or small) number of men closely united into one society, or family as it were; a social, ethical, mystical body” (Strongs, 2012).

In a greater translation the body can also be considered in comparison as slaves. This is interesting, because in society a slave has always been considered subservient.

English: The Hunted Slaves

English: The Hunted Slaves (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Here we have in the beginning of text a women considered subservient, chosen to anoint the head; that is the Mashyach with oil which flows down to the body who for all purposes are slaves?

Here is a powerful explanation says the Most High. In Revelations 18, we see this, “And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.” (v.13).

The text is speaking of those things considered a commodity by those in gentile rule, all this that have made them rich. Slaves are among them…people and souls of men.

You are an expensive commodity but still considered subservient in the eyes of those who sold you…but God, When I look at the definition of slave…it led me to:
“that which casts a shadow as distinguished from the shadow itself” (Strongs, 2012)

That shadow found in Psalm 91, the secret place.

Your Sunday Bread: Rebellion in the Church

English: I took photo of First Baptist Church ...

English: I took photo of First Baptist Church in Rockdale, TX, with Canon camera. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Today, there are churches popping up on every corner. As far as the eye can see and beyond there is a church house (literally houses) being converted to churches on every other block and every other corner? I wonder why, because what we also see today is people church hopping; going from one church to the next never able to find roots. Hop, Hop, Hop they go on and on and on, and for whatever reason they can never settle down. There are many answers given for these occurrences, and some make sense while others do not.

The big thing today is that some churches split, because someone doesn’t like this or that; or, someone feels that they can do a better job of the pastor ship than the current pastor.

This is what happened in heaven; Satan wanting to be like Elohim and convinced some others to side with him so they could take over heaven which started a war in heaven. (Revelations 12:7-10).

In times pass we could blame this behavior on the individuals, because we had churches with supposedly, sound doctrines, and so called seasoned pastors to lead us. Everything was stable, and if you were Baptist each week we could count on the following:

  1. Sunday School
  2. Morning Worship
  3. 3 o’clock service
  4. BTU at 6 p.m.
  5. 7:00 evening worship
  6. Wednesday night /Bible study prayer meeting (not sure cause I never quite got a good grasp of the word of God of how prayer helped, but people prayed).

We expected to be fed at church or either would grab a bite in between those times. I did not hear any griping, people just followed instructions and did what they were told, and things seemed to work. I really had some good times at church and I thank God today for my beginnings, because I was able to remember some of my earlier teachings which in turn brought me to a place of surrender in my mind later on.

Ironically, there are some churches that had those same ideals but are no longer in existence today, and others split because the members, for whatever reason rebel against the Shepard of the house and gather together other members to ban with them against authority, and, either are kicked out or leave to start other churches. (i.e., Sweet Home Missionary Baptist Church/Greater Sweet Home Missionary Baptist Church).

I was considering why people strike out on their own, and I wonder is it to fulfill the great commission, or that they are in an act of rebellion because some people do not like the way the church is running. Consequently,  are good reasons for some when we see leaders of the flock falling to sin, being caught in compromising positions and the members are leaving the churches. Also, the members are not working together where people are gossiping, and people are arguing over positions and people are acting (for all purposes) like people on the street while others who look on wonder what is going on?

In the article, “What is the cause of church splits? How can healing occurs after a church split?” the author conveys and ideal consequence, “Divisions that lead to church splits are a sad and all-too-common occurrence in the body of Christ. The effects of a church split, regardless of the cause, can be devastating. Church splits distress and dismay mature believers, disillusion new believers, cause havoc in the lives of pastors and their families, and bring reproach upon the name of Christ.”(Got Questions, 2012).

No one ever addresses these critical scenarios, because all we hear of these splits is there was an argument and depending on the people; either another church is started or those people move their membership to another establishment. Similarly, when speaking of people moving their membership to the new “church plant”…do they forget, are they ever counseled about the fight that led them to the new place?

We cannot continue to walk away from problems leaving unresolved issues in our wake, because “weeds” choke, and “seeds” planted come back to haunt.

The article states further, “Churches are like hospitals, full of wounded and sick people, but in the church the sickness is sin and the wounds are those we inflict upon ourselves and one another because of sin. One sin that causes multiple problems is a lack of forgiveness. No Christian is perfect, and no pastor or elder or deacon is perfect. When all these imperfect people get together, disagreements, hurt feelings and misunderstandings are inevitable. If our expectations of others are too high, disappointment is inevitable and can cause further feelings of hurt and resentment. Our response to one another should be to forgive one another in kindness and compassion (Ephesians 4:32; Colossians 3:13) and in Christian love, which covers a multitude of sins, followed by an increased commitment to serve one another (1 Peter 4:8-11). Once we are committed to forgiving, loving, and serving one another, we will see each other’s differences in a new light. But if we react to differences of opinion by taking sides and gossiping, the split will widen, more harm will be done to the church members, and our message to the world will be further compromised.” (Got Questions, 2012). This is the jest that we must always see our part in the situation and realize that everyone has their own opinions, but everyone must see the need of others more than themselves. There is too much mess in the churches of today residue from life’s woes and ills left unchecked.

Why do churches split? The article states, “A church split may happen when someone seeks to manipulate people and/or events for his own ends. It may be that there is pride in rule-keeping, and those who do not keep the same rules are ill-treated. It may be that a pet interpretation of doctrine is emphasized and used as a litmus test for belonging to the “in” group. Or, it could be that someone wants to wrest leadership from the pastor or elders and rallies a group of people around himself to accomplish a coup d’état. Sadly, difference of opinion regarding music and worship style is also a frequent cause of division in the church. The excuses for the conflict are numerous, but they all stem from the same root cause—pride and selfishness. James 4:1-3 says, “What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You want something but don’t get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you do not ask God. When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.” (Got Questions, 2012).

Ultimately, the church has to get a clue; that is, the war in heaven (the spiritual) is being played out now (the natural) and the church is the stage. What is the world seeing when it comes to Kingdom business, because they can look at the soap operas on television; that is, Jane sleeping with Jake, and Alexis owning a new Benz. What else has the kingdom to offer, they wonder? Good question, are they seeing God or the devil there.

Your Sunday Bread, Lord Help My Unbelief

Awesome word. Yes since we know that God is real and made angels and that He will cast Satan out of the heavenlies, but for now he comes as angel of light to fool and trick us then to turn our lives upside down; it would serve as warning to become more aware of the demons among us.

So yes, amen there are demons and they reek havoc in the lives of believers, so imagine what they are doing to those with unbelief…better ask somebody, because the mental institutions are full of people who are under the attack of the enemy and we call them insane because we don’t believe; it’s not normal behavior to run from something or someone not there. But we know that these are spirits and it makes sense that we don’t see them; we can’t see the devil he is spirit. However, we do see him at work in other people.

So are the people who are able to see them really insane or running scared?

Concerning demonic thoughts, hearing voices,

Mark 9:14-29

‘And when they came to the [nine] disciples, they saw a great crowd around them and scribes questioning and disputing with them. And immediately all the crowd, when they saw Jesus [returning from the holy mount, His face and person yet glistening], they were greatly amazed and ran up to Him [and] greeted Him. And He asked them, About what are you questioning and discussing with them?

And one of the throng replied to Him, Teacher, I brought my son to You, for he has a dumb spirit.

And wherever it lays hold of him [so as to make him its own], it dashes him down and convulses him, and he foams [at the mouth] and grinds his teeth, and he [falls into a motionless stupor and] is wasting away. And I asked Your disciples to drive it out, and they were not able [to do it].

And He answered them, O unbelieving generation [without any faith]! How long shall I [have to do] with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him to Me.

So they brought [the boy] to Him, and when the spirit saw Him, at once it completely convulsed the boy, and he fell to the ground and kept rolling about, foaming [at the mouth].

And [Jesus] asked his father, How long has he had this? And he answered, From the time he was a little boy.

And it has often thrown him both into fire and into water, intending to kill him. But if You can do anything, do have pity on us and help us.

And Jesus said, [You say to Me], If You can do anything? [Why,] all things can be (are possible) to him who believes!

At once the father of the boy gave [an eager, piercing, inarticulate] cry with tears, and he said, Lord, I believe! [Constantly] help my weakness of faith!

But when Jesus noticed that a crowd [of people] came running together, He rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, You dumb and deaf spirit, I charge you to come out of him and never go into him again.

And after giving a [hoarse, clamoring, fear-stricken] shriek of anguish and convulsing him terribly, it came out; and the boy lay [pale and motionless] like a corpse, so that many of them said, He is dead.

But Jesus took [a strong grip of] his hand and began lifting him up, and he stood.

And when He had gone indoors, His disciples asked Him privately, Why could not we drive it out?

And He replied to them, This kind cannot be driven out by anything but prayer and fasting.

When we look at this text we can equate this to all bad behavior, because who said that talking to people who we cannot see there takes precedence over killing someone?

Powerful word, and I ask who can drive the demon out except the glory of our Elohim through fasting and prayer.
