Memorial Day

Many times throughout history peoples and nations have been attempting to memorialize the actions and conduct of a person, a group, or even certain events both tragic as well as awe inspiring.

In the Book of Joshua, as the nation of Israel was about to enter into “The Promised Land”, The LORD God instructed Joshua that when they crossed the river Jordan they were to take 12 stones ( 1 for each of the 12 tribes of the nation of Israel) from the middle of the river and set up a monument as a memorial to future generations to see and inquire as to the meaning thus paving the way to ensure events are never lost or forgotten.

In America in recent years we have seen historical monuments and statues removed and torn down. This was not done so that as a nation we might dialogue about the past and the meanings of such, rather it was to re-write the historical narrative to fit an unholy agenda. I say it is unholy because I believe it is to weaken the foundational pillars of the Nation to “fundamentally transform it” into something that it was not created nor ever intended to pursue: Socialism. If we as a Nation do not hold onto our Memorials, foundations, our tributary icons we will have witnessed the abolishment of Liberty itself in America, and that is UNHOLY!

We as Americans have a day set apart on our annual calendar to pay tribute to, to remember, to reflect upon, and to strive towards fruition of this ideal; Memorial Day! Is it just a day off work? Is it another reason to have a bbq picnic? How many Americans even know what Memorial Day represents?

Memorial Day is the day when we as a Nation are suppossed to honor ALL that have paid the Ultimate Sacrifice for the ideal that Our nation was founded upon. The ideal of Liberty. Liberty is not a foreign concept for as God instructed Joshua in regards to the stones from the river, this was in response to the Liberty and freedom they were about to enter into after four hundred years or tyranny, bondage, enslavement.

Liberty and freedom is The purpose and the goal to which ALL these have battled, bled, and died for. Starting with Jesus of Nazareth through the millenia many good and noble people of character have given of themselves that “last full measure” of devotion to this cause. For there are only Two that have laid their life down so that you and I might know Liberty and Freedom; that is Jesus the Christ and every American patriot-soldier!

So as we Celebrate this Memorial Day, May 31, 2021 Do not let the day go by without talking about, discussing, and sharing the ideal for which they died… Liberty/Freedom!!!

Honor their great sacrifice, by striving to understand why another person would willingly lay down the preciousness of life so that others would walk in freedom.

Father God YOU are The Author of Liberty and Freedom, it is Your desire that none should be held captive by any ruler be it the devil or a tyrannical government. Grant us understanding to the cause of freedom and liberty so that we might share in the sacred preservation of that which so many have given so great a sacrifice. Walk with and empower each one of your children to promote, stand for , and if required be willing to offer ourselves on that sacred altar, that Memorial of LIBERTY!

Lord Jesus receive with Open Arms those that have given it All
Long Live LIBERTY!
All gave some…
Some gave ALL!!!

God Bless

Harvesting and Rejoicing Ahead

Psalms 126 A Song of Ascension 1-6

When The Lord begins, and He IS beginning, to bring back that is to restore/rescue those that have been bound by satan, INTO His Marvelous Kingdom, laughter and JOY will fill our hearts, our mouth and tongue in unity will declare it!

Then the nations, the world around us; the eyes and ears of the witnesses around our daily lives will give Testimony to The Truth. Great are You LORD and Mighty are your works and deeds your exloits of Power over every thing!

Even the barren places, the wilderness will teem with life. Many there are that for many years have in earnest prayer watered and sown seed. Inspite of doubtfulness and sadness they continued their laborous toil, they have gown out in sorrow with tears, yet they will return with dancing and joyfullness bringing with them the fruit of their labor.

The Sheaves of Wheat are the Souls that will be Harvested in these Last Days!

Pray that The LORD would send Laborors into The Harvest Field.

Such a Big Word; IF

Did you know the word IF is in 63 of the 66 books in the Bible according to Strong’s concordance (KJV), to which you might think, that is not so surprising or such a Big deal. We will look at IF in this context; an IF leading to a Then equaling A Promise (Blessing or cursing) which leads to a Reward or fruition (or the fruit borne) of that promise. Much hinges and is dependant upon that tiny two letter word IF.

If my people who are called by My Name…2 Chr. 7:14

IF you seek him….2 Chr. 15:2

If you do what is Right…Genesis 4:7

IF you listen carefully to what He says….Exodus 23:22

My son (daughter) IF you accept My Words….Pr. 2:1

In each of the above mentioned scripture refrence thare is A direct promise that is attached to the IF, you should and I highly recommend you read for yourself what those Promises are for your life. Well those are OT refrences and “We are not under The Law” as often is the justification by many Christians today, so lets look at some NT teaching. Since He changes NOT!

IF you knew the gift of God… Jn 4:10

Today IF you harden not your heart… , Acts 3:7,8

IF you Believe in your Heart and Confess with Your mouth that Jesus Christ IS LORD, and that God the Father raised Him from the Dead Then you too Shall be Saved. Ro. 10:9,10

ALL of The Bibles Promises of God are for ALL those that have put their Faith and Trust and Hope in Jesus (Yeshua) The Messiah. For ALL the promises of God in HIM are Yes and Amen.

Choices and Consequences

Promise: Blessing or Cursing

Fruit: Eternity = Life or Death

IF means You have a Choice
Then means there is a Consequence

Who is Running the Country?

Proverbs 28:2a

When a country is “Rebellious” it has many rulers.

The Master of Puppets

Do we have a “rebellious” country? Well if we were to analyze all the evidence that is afforded to us, then the answer is astoundingly YES.

We have politicians over stepping their assigned authority, we have laws not being enforced. Not that Law Enforcment is not doing their jobs, but are being prohibitted from executing their sworn duties. Yes we have an overwhelmingly “Rebellious”: political wing in power. And new laws or Executive Orders contrary to existing laws and Constitutional Rights are being implemented against its citizens. The people that are implementing this charade of “rebellion” are urging the counter culture “Revolution” as they want to refer to it as. To what are they “Rebelling” The Founding Principals of this Country, its foundations, its heritiage, its legacy, its future.

So Who is Running the Country? Certainly not the guy they have “placed” in The White House. The one who cannot complete a coherant thought, or seems to be on the verge of mental and or physical collapse. An elder abuse case should be brought against those that are coercing this man. Is it the VP? Perhaps, or is it a group of others? Lets look and consider some possibilities of who may be calling the shots “behind the veil”. Former President B. H. Obama; ok well he is on record as having stated he would like to run his third term from a basement, while just being the voice in the ear of the “stooge” in the Limelight…hmmm man that sure sounds eerily coincedental. Who else might be the Puppet Masters pulling the strings of the puppet president? Many have heard of George Soros, the CCP, the Illuminati, the Bilderburg Group, the Bohemian Grove Society, The Clinton’s, Gates, Fauci, and a host of others that have a Globalist Agenda. As stated above a “Rebellious” country has many rulers, we may never get to see their faces, we may know their names. The only solution for turning things around, to where we know…”Who is Running the Country”…We The People of These United States…, is to return to a Righteousness seeking Nation. To Repent of our seeking after wickedness and laughing at abominable detestible things. To seek after the God of The Bible, the true underlying foundation the cornerstone of this country. That is what has been the point of the “Rebellion”.

To close also in Proverbs 28:12,28 it says that “when the wicked rise to power men hide.” We cannot be those that hide, we must be likened unto the the ones mentioned in 28:1 “…but the RIGHTEOUS are as BOLD as a LION“. We are to be boldly Standing in direct oppostion to wicked men, and wickedness in EVERY realm, it is Our sacred duty!

Thus FAR and NO MORE!!!

Resurrection Day

I do not like to use the unbiblical term “Easter” for the observance of the single most important day in human history for it has in its origins the Pagan fertility goddess Ishtar. Yes, this is where we get the “bunny” and the “eggs” both symbols of fertility for the fertility goddess. So why do we celebrate this day on a Sunday and what does it have to do with of Jesus of Nazareth? We must look into the Jewish, not pagan, origins, to gain knowledge, to bring us to a place of understanding, that we might walk in Wisdom. To observe this holy and sacred day, with reverence and joyous celebration.

First lets look at the life, death, burial, and that “Resurrection Day“!!!

His Life; Born in the place of the ceremonial lambs in Bethlehem, Judea in the spring time at the time of the sacrificial lambs birthing. Laid in a manger and wrapped just like a ceremonial lamb. By age 12 knew he would be about His Fathers business and grew in wisdom and stature before God and man. Baptized by John in the River Jordan, began His 3 year ministry of healing the sick, bringing sight to the blind, and freeing those held in satanic bondage. He healed all manner of infirmities. And declared that the Kingdom of Heaven had come to earth. Finally He came to that ordained moment of time to fulfill more prophecy as He enters Jerusalem on the back of a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey. Zech 9:9. To the shouts of praise!

Palm Sunday; Hosanna hosanna in the highest, his triumphal entry in through the “East Gate” prophetically declared by the prophet Ezekiel 44:1-3, and to the exact day by Daniel 9:25. As The Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the WORLD, He needed to be inspected.

10th of Nisan (Abib) – 14th of Nisan (Abib) Exodus 12:1-7.

He was inspected for #4 days by the religious leaders in the temple area and by political leaders and found to be without flaw, worthy to be suited as the Lamb. The selected lamb was to be inspected by the priests to be found worthy for the “Passover” sacrifice.

Garden of Gethsemane

Which on His last night he prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane at the base of Mt of Olives: as it were great drops of blood, “Father if there be ..another way… let this cup pass from me, but not my will but yours be done”. Oh what kind of LOVE is this? (Mk.14:32,Lk22:39-44)

Lamb of God

His Death; The Atoning sacrifice as The Passover Lamb, we read in the account it was time for the Passover Feast in Jerusalem. Mathew 27, John 19. Being flogged and scourged beyond anything we can fathom or comprehend He willingly went to The Cross, high and lifted up, yet even there He still fulfilling prophecy found enough strength and Grace to ask forgiveness to those that placed Him there (All Mankind) afterwards He gave up His spirit, and was verified to have died by the Roman Executionary Guard, by piercing His side. Followers and true believers sought permission to remove him and prepare Him for burial before sundown on the Sabbath (Friday evening-Saturday evening).

His Burial; Placed in an unused tomb, by Kings and by the poor, yes my dear friends fulfilling even more prophetic signs of The One. Scripture informs us of the deeds He conducted during his time in Death, Hell, and the Grave. Ministering to those in darkness and bound in chains til that final day.

and finally…

Resurrection Day; This occurred on the “Third Day” which in that particular year, never a coincidence with The Lord! Early Sunday morning the day after the Sabbath Day (#7) which is day (#8). Eight is the number of New beginnings in Hebrew, just as in circumcision on the 8th day. Mathew 28, John 20.

To validate the sacrifice, the offering up of himself to fulfil the ordinances written and foreshadowing Him, God The Father raised Him to life in glorious manner, in an INSTANT the Light and Power of Heaven burst forth from within radiating outward. Raising this man Jesus (Yeshua) from death unto LIFE. Securing a Hope, for as many as would believe. He became The First Fruits The Wave offering. As Paul writes if Christ raised not from the dead, we are to be pitied above all men for we are still dead in our sins. But He Did raise from the dead and made Himself known and visible for 40 days, prior to departing to “Prepare” a place for His beloved, those that have put there faith in Him, The Acceptable Harvest of which The First Fruits offering was for.

HE is not here for HE is RISEN!!!

I want to mention briefly the shroud of Turin. I do not want to mislead any so I will say this; I do not know nor do I claim anything about this cloth other than this interesting bit of information. There is an imaged burned, like an x-ray into the cloth and it replicates an amazing 3 dimensional view of “whomever” was wrapped in that linen. They have now created a life size carbon image of the shroud, it is described as that person being beaten so severely with over 600 wounds which were counted Bruised, wounded, pierced, and flesh torn, and afflicted . (Isaiah 53)

Not that this can be validated it is however AMAZING!!! To See more images go to https://aleteia.org/2018/03/28/this-3d-carbon-copy-of-jesus-was-created-using-the-shroud-of-turin/

Passover was not the only observance that was symbolically fulfilled that weekend, Jewish Festivals of Unleavened Bread, First fruits- Wave Offering, were also completed by Yeshua. So let us, this season abandon the pagan playful games, reunite with the True symbolisms and meaning of this Amazing and Glorious Day.

Resurrection Day

From an Eternal Throne to a lowly manger

From the manger to The Cross

From The Cross to a tomb

From a tomb TO LIFE EVERLASTING in Radiant Glory!!!

That same glory awaits ALL that put their trust and faith in Him whose Name alone is Worthy of All our praise! Today if you would humble your Hearts and Hear The Spirits voice, accepting His Free gift of Grace and salvation. You too shall be SAVED

What Is IT?

That was the question, and that is what it was ultimately called. This substance that was provided during a mass wandering for a mass of humanity. So what is this strange substance that fed the nation of Israelites as they wandered through the desert regions for forty, yes forty years. And was also enclosed in the Ark of The Covenant.

Manna; means; what is it? Exodus 16:4 God says He “will rain down Bread from heaven”. It was provided on a daily basis, and only enough for each person for one day, on the 6th day there was enough provided to last for two days through the Sabbath day so as not to have to labor for it, as an ordained day of rest. Psalms 78:23-25 says it was the “bread” of angels and the “grain” of heaven. Grain, bread very symbolic terms for whatever it was.

Grain to flour to Bread elements used for fellowship and memorial offerings in Exodus, Leviticus, and Deuteronomy, and The Bread of The Presence in The Tabernacle (the presence of whom?)…Let that rise for a moment in your ponderings.

Jesus referred to himself as the Bread of Heaven as well as The Bread of Life, so lets look at some BREAD besides that mentioned above. John 6:32-35

Feast of Unleavened Bread observed for 7 days prior to the Passover Feast.

By HIS Stripes we ARE Healed! Isaiah 53:5

Jesus the Word made flesh. When He, Jesus, was tempted by the devil in the account found in Mathew 4:4 a peculiar thing jumps out. The devil tries to get Jesus to make Bread, from a stone? Ok so what does stone represent; a hard heart of stone, the stone tablets on which The Ten Commandments were written, gravestones in the Kidron Valley? When stone or rock is crushed it becomes…dust…powder. Remember in Genesis The LORD GOD made man from the “dust” of the earth. Fine flour like powder was prescribed to be used in making the Bread offerings in the OT. Fine flour likened to dust. What about the Bread? Man shall not live by “Bread” alone but by every WORD spoken by the Mouth of God (Rhema) the spoken WORD. Was Jesus’ reply. That Spoken WORD is that Written WORD becoming flesh in the body of Jesus of Nazareth, who stated this is my body, as he broke the Unleavened Bread of the feast on the night he was betrayed. Take and eat of it he commanded Mt.26:26,Mk.14:22,Lk.22:19,1Cor.11:23-24. He also is on record of saying whoever will not eat of his flesh will in no ways enter the Kingdom of heaven. (Flesh=Body=Word=Bread)

Communion wafer at typical church service not many stripes on these…”What is it?”

So what is it? It is an understanding a “revelation” that we must have a complete confidence and TRUST in The Bread, that is The Father will nourish us through The Son, Jesus the Christ. That He alone is more than capable to provide all that we need. “Give US this Day our Daily Bread” (Mt.6:11). As we enter into this season of joyous celebration, take some time to remember that staple of Life, Bread.

In the personal, relational, communion (koinonia), and interactions and be partakers of and with Jesus our Great Redeemer The Living Bread, The Living Word.

The Construct of a Name: HaShem

What is it’s Fragrance, it’s Quality, it’s Character that Identifies it… It’s Name

What is the Fragrance, the Quality, the Character or Eternal Attributes of Him whom we simply call “God”.

YHWH Yireh means He is our Provider!

YHWH Roi means He is our Shepherd!

YHWH Rapha means He is our Healer!

YHWH Nissi means He is our Banner (Standard) !

YHWH Shalom means He is our Peace!

YHWH Tsidkenu means He is our Righteousness!

YHWH Tsori means He is our Strength!

YHWH Shammah means He is Present (With us)

YHWH Shuah means He is our Salvation

These are but a few of the describing Qualities and the Character of The Lord our God. In Colossians 1:19 it states that “it pleased God (YHWH) to have ALL His fulness dwell in Him”. Again, reiterated in Colossians 2: 9 it declares that …”in Christ [Yeshua HaMeshiach ( Jesus the Messiah)] That the FULLNESS of The Deity (Godhead) dwelt in bodily form, and that you (His disciples) have been given fulness in Messiah (Christ).

This means that ALL the NAMES, ALL the Fragrances, ALL the Character and ALL Quality of that which we simply call God was made manifest in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. To deny Him is to deny The NAME (HaShem) that Dwelt in FULL measure in Him.

He IS the Great I AM, The Self Existent One, besides Him there is No Other.

THE LORD of Lords and THE KING of Kings.

To Know HIM and to make HIM known! And the POWER of HIS NAME!!!

Salvation is found in NO ONE ELSE, For there is No other NAME under heaven (nor on Earth) given unto men by which we MUST BE SAVED. That at The NAME of Jesus (Yeshua) every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God The Father. Acts 4:12/Phil.2:9

Amen

Kingdom Bob

Amos 7: 7-15

A Standard is only as meaningful as its longevity. If a standard is always being altered and changed how then is it a standard at all? If everyone has a different standard, again there is No standard. For what is right to each individual is a mere image of ones own perspective. Therefore we MUST turn towards an “Eternal” everlasting Standard. One that does not sway by popular consent, or for an individuals ideals. No we must be willing to submit to the notion and the concept, and as for me the Truth, that a Higher Authority and that Higher Authority’s Standard is what we as humanity needs. Not only for the individuals own betterment but also for that as a moral compass as a society at large. A society or nation built upon Freedom and Liberty can only function and flourish for as a morally guided people.

A Meridian is a Standard which Guides and Directs to know Truth

Once the “Standard” becomes skewed how easy it then becomes to utterly do away with that “Old” Standard and impose a “new” lesser weakened standard. Case in point, America built upon the Judean/Christian Standard is now become a nation whose compass and moral direction is tossed about by every wind of doctrine and feel good mantra.

A Standard is being raised, the Righteous shall run to it, Stand for It, and promote It. (Zechariah 4:9-10)

Isaiah the Prophet declares this prophetic Word of The Lord in Is. 28:14-19 (16-17)NIV.

14 Therefore hear the word of the Lord, you scoffers
    who rule this people in Jerusalem.
15 You boast, “We have entered into a covenant with death,
    with the realm of the dead we have made an agreement.
When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by,
    it cannot touch us,
for we have made a lie our refuge
    and falsehood our hiding place
.”

16 So this is what the Sovereign Lord says:

“See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone,
    a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation;
the one who relies on it
    will never be stricken with panic.
17 I will make justice the measuring line
    and righteousness the plumb line;
hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie,
    and water will overflow your hiding place.
18 Your covenant with death will be annulled;
    your agreement with the realm of the dead will not stand.
When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by,
    you will be beaten down by it.
19 As often as it comes it will carry you away;
    morning after morning, by day and by night,
    it will sweep through.”

The understanding of this message
    will bring sheer terror.

A tested and True cornerstone has been laid in Zion; Christ Jesus The Lord, and that those who Trust in Him will never be dismayed. Justice must be the measuring line with which we must administer to all, and Righteousness the Plumb line to which we are established and built upon. He promises to sweep away the “lie” and the darkness of “hidden secret” false doctrines. Attached to a Plumb line is a device called a bob, a plumb bob, this bob gives a pin point accuracy.

Jesus Christ is The Standard He is The “Kingdom Bob” and we that follow after Him must be held to and live in right alignment with the “Kingdom Standard“.

Who is Like You Oh LORD

The NAME of The LORD is a Strong Tower, the Righteous run to it and are safe. Proverbs 18:10

Psalms 77:

Selah: A term used to invoke a deep reflection and to reconsider…

11,12

I Will REMEMBER the deeds of The Lord…I Will MEDITATE on ALL Your Mighty deeds.

v14,15

You are the God who performs miracles; you display Your power among the peoples. With Your Mighty Arm You Redeemed Your people…

Who is like You Oh LORD our God, for you and you alone have purchased men for you own glory. Mighty are your works and your NAME is worthy to be praised. It IS our strength and our SHEILD. Let us never lose sight of our Refuge.

Lambs and/or Lions

A perspective on the 5th chapter of Micah whose name means:

Who is Like The LORD

Behold The Lion of The Tribe of Judah/A Lamb as slain from the creation of the world.

“But you Bethlehem Ephrathah though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me One who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from old from Days of Eternity (ancient times). He will Stand and Shepherd His flock in the Strength of the LORD, in the Majesty of the NAME of The LORD His GOD and He will be their Peace” Mi.5:2,4,5. Wow isn’t that an Amazing prophetic Word, and this can only be speaking of the One and only Yeshua ha Mashiach ישוע המשיח! We know him as Jesus The Christ or Messiah which is to mean “Anointed One“.

Born in a manger in Bethlehem, Judea. We often imagine Jesus as this little baby wrapped in swaddling clothes, just as the lambs for temple sacrifice were. Many Christians around the world still identify Him as just that, a baby. The bible informs us that he grew in wisdom and stature with God and man Lk 2:52. He did not remain as a child. He went around the countryside of Galilee and Judea declaring The Kingdom of God and performing an abundance of miracles, so many that The Apostle John states that he did so many that all the books in all the world could not contain them. That IS ANointed! In Judaism, there was an established sacrificial system of worship, an atoning sacrifice of a Lamb without blemish, perfect in form without injury or defect. Bethlehem was the location of which these ceremonial lambs were birthed and protected until their time of offering, at one year of age, to ensure they were as “perfect” as could be for the “Passover” offering. Spring time occurrences (both birth and Passover) Such rich symbolism.

He was led like a Lamb to the cross were He was offered up as an atoning sacrifice for ALL humankind. He Always Was and Always Will Be “The Lamb slain from the foundations of the world” (Rev. 13:8 ) As followers of Christ “Christians” we must know how to be The Lamb. Anointed in Christ Jesus so that we too to as declared in Isaiah 61:1 “The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound and again in the NT Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To proclaim the Year of the LORD’s favor”. And to bear our cross!

Our journey does not stop there brothers and sisters, yet we must fully understand what it is and how to be a Lamb. For then Micah prophesies in verses (7,8,9,11,-14) a “Remnant” will arise( 7 Shepherds/even 8 leaders of men), this “remnant” will be like A Lion, like a young lion, “Your hand will be lifted up in Triumph over your enemies. and ALL your foes will be Destroyed”! It even gives us the name of the enemy and the strongholds to demolish. The Assyrian and Nimrod oh we should know our enemy dear Christian they have been around from the beginning. As The LION and as young lions, Christ Jesus The Lion and His church young lions, this “Remnant” shall “..tear down your strongholds, destroy your witchcraft and no longer cast spells, destroy your carved images and sacred stones, and uproot from among you your Asherah poles. After Jesus was baptized in the River Jordan by John it says He was led by The Spirit and after fasting forty days and forty nights, He was then “tempted” by the ENEMY, at one of these strongholds; and Jesus defeated him there. A place of (Moon worship a high place near Jericho). At another Stronghold Jesus asked His disciples “whom do You say I AM”? This was at the stronghold of Mt. Hermon, Pan’s cave. When Jesus was crucified, buried, and resurrected it says that He paraded around these defeated foes. We also like Our Lion Leader must triumph and roar in conquest over these enemies of man’s souls. So yes we fellow Christ followers must know how to be a lamb before we can be the lion. Yet in Truth we must know how to operate under the anointing and authority to be Both The Lion and The Lamb! .

What A MIGHTY GOD we Serve! HE is our Champion! Our GREAT EXAMPLE!

Only when we fully understand who and what we are In Christ, can we function and operate in ALL that He has already provided. Go in Power Go in Peace Go in the Authority and Strength of The NAME of The LORD Our GOD!

Amen….
