Do Not Linger

Several weeks ago as I could not sleep, The Holy Spirit prompted me in my supplications the word “Tarry“. Now many might think as I did immediately to idea of lingering, waiting, or simply procrastinating; this word and its various uses can and do imply so much more. So as you read along and tarry with me for a moment we can dig a bit deeper into a more appreciative view of the Word The Sprit of The Lord is Speaking at this moment to His Church. We can also further understand the importance of the comment from our Lord Jesus, on the night of His betrayal in the Garden of Gethsemane He states “…could you not “TARRY” with me One hour?” Mt. 26:40

If to tarry simply implies to linger or hang out, then His disciples surely had accomplished that, as they too were in the garden. Let us look at this word in its original language, context, and in various uses in scripture.

As noted above in the Gospels this word “tarry” in the original Greek lexicon is

Strong’s #3306; meno: verb; to stay (in place, relation, or expectancy) abide, continue, dwell, endure, be present, remain, to stand.

This is an active participation, cooperating in that which we are to be engaged in at that moment. It is not idle and it is not passive.

Again, the Risen Christ tells His disciples in the Book of Acts to “Tarry” in Jerusalem until they have received power, now we many times glance over the “Tarrying” and go straight for the “power”. In the next few verses of chapter 1 of Acts we find the students and followers of The Way in an Upper room, “praying” ; “anticipating“, “watching” they recalled when Jesus asked them to tarry with him in the Garden, so they knew now that it was not just to sit idly by but an active engagement in the spirit through intercessory prayer, a birthing type of prayer see Hannah’s prayer in 1 Samuel 1:10-2:10. We find this example throughout scripture Elijah travailing in prayer for rain, to note in Genesis we find Adam having a time of fellowship (koinonia) with The Almighty in The Garden of Eden in the cool of the day, Our Father seems to really like gardens, it reminds me of a song “In The Garden” and a phrase of that lyric that sings: “Oh the joy we share as we TARRY there no other has ever known”. (Mary Magdalene in the Garden Tomb setting, meeting and tarrying with the Risen Christ is the inspiration of this song). And again as recorded in the Gospels Jesus himself would arise before dawn to go and have a time of fellowship alone with His Father.

In Isaiah 40:31 this well known verse often quotes “…they that “wait” upon the Lord shall renew their strength…” the word wait here is likened to “tarry“, in the Hebrew the word is qavah Strong’s #6960 and it means to be entwined, to become a part of, to be strengthened by twisting together.

Ecclesiates 4:12 states that a cord of three is not easily broken, when you braid strands into a cord it is so much more durable and stronger than by itself.

Jesus is speaking to His church right now that this is the season we need to be yoking ourselves to Him by The Holy Spirit, though The WORD, and prayer and intercession, watching and discerning, to be making ourselves ready as one prepared for the Bridegrooms announced arrival as noted in the parable of the Ten Virgins in Mathew 25.

Those that do not hearken to His promptings, will be like the 5 virgins that are not prepared or ready for His Wedding banquet. Will you be found ready having prepared yourself or will you be found wanting?

Hear what The Spirit is saying to the Church in this moment.

Tarry with Him The Bridegroom By His Spirit, through His Word, til He Returns for His Bride!

Amen!

A Rigtheous Branch – The COST of Discipleship

A Tree was placed in the middle of the Garden of Eden (Ge.2:9), let us presume to say for this teaching, this Tree is in the form of an Olive Tree. This Tree, The Tree of Life, is an ancient and Eternal Tree. Throughout scripture The LORD God uses many agricultural analogies to instill His Eternal truths, that is what we are attempting to uncover.

In the Holy Land of ancient Israel and the middle east one of the oldest trees and a significant source of produce is the Olive Tree, from the concept of this tree we will look at the tree, the root, the Branch, and perhaps even the fruit and its purpose and fulfillment in following Christ (Messiah).

A Family Tree is a record of its ancestral historical life, the olive tree is unique as it too records history and connects time through the past, the present, and gives a glimpse of potential for the future.

Tree of Life: The source of Eternal, Immortal, state of Living in God’s presence.

Root of Jesse: From his ancestral tree, his lineage, yet was also before him. Son of David, Son of Man.

Righteous branch: The fruit produced would be Righteousness for it stems from The Righteous One

Natzer: The root word that is the basis for a Nazarene or the town Nazareth; It means a sprout, also implies it is that there is nothing of significance or majesty to behold, and can be used to imply a student or disciple.

“No student is above his Master” (Mt. 10:24, Lk. 6:40) Our Master; if we are His students, is The One and Only, The Alpha and The Omega The Beginning and The End (Rev. 1:8), The Root and Offspring of Jesse (Rev. 22:16)

I am the vine YOU are the Branches, apart from me you can do NOTHING (Jn.15:5). Basically what Jesus (Yeshua) is stating in fact is that He is The source and we are but the conduits unto which all GOOD fruit is produced. But there is So much more beneath the surface. We must look at the biblical principles and examples to fully understand The Cost of Discipleship.

Counting the Cost

Discipline is part of discipleship. Hebrews 12:11 states it like this.

” NO DISCIPLINE seems pleasurable at the time, but PAINFUL. Later on, however it Produces a Harvest of RIGHTEOUSNESS and PEACE for those Who have been TRAINED by it.”

We in the modern church have not wanted to deal with discipleship, just a social structure to feel good about ones self. A spectator sporting event to see the hippest or coolest musicians or speaker(s). There is a Cost to Follow Christ, He emphatically stated, “if the world Hates you for His names sake, remember it Hated Him first” (Jn.15:80. Again, “those that would live a godly life in Christ Jesus Will Be persecuted” (2Ti.3:12), why because being a friend of this world is enmity towards God. They are not of the same Kingdom nor of the same character.

Again Jesus states; “if anyone would come after me let him deny himself, take up his cross and follow me. The early natzers (sprouts/disciples) of Christ or “followers of the Way” as they were known abandoned everything, they left it all behind to follow him and it COST them at least in this worlds view “Everything”. But, they received for their reward an Eternity in His Glorious presence!

So we can see the REWARD is worth so much more than the COST if we can see with eyes that look past this temporary existence of this life in this world and looking unto Eternity in a Glorious Kingdom with Christ Jesus as our God and King.

A Time to Separate and Put Away

In the Book of Ezra it describes a wayward unfaithful nation or people of God. Specifically it deals with the priesthood and its marrying of foreigners from the surrounding lands and nations. Ezra the Priest in verse one of the tenth chapter is found in intercessory prayer for his covenant brethren. Praying, confessing, weeping, and throwing himself to the ground (complete humility). He was praying for repentance to fall upon the hearts of his kinsmen. In verse two his prayers begin to bare fruit; as they collectively confess “we have been UNFAITHFUL to Our GOD by marrying foreign woman from the people around us. But in spite of this there is still a HOPE for Israel.” Finally in verse three the intercessory prayer of Ezra is manifest as the leadership of those people declared publicly; “now let US make a covenant before Our GOD”…to PUT AWAY the foreign wives and offspring from among us. Ezra 10:1-3 NIV

The marrying of “foreign women” can be likened to partaking of the things of this “world”.

Carnal Christianity, while apparently flourishing over the past few decades, produced nothing more than veal calf Christians. Veal is accomplished when a baby calf is never weaned from its mothers milk, and kept upright in stalls so that they do not fall over as they are too weak from anemia to stand on their own.

America, like Israel also has been found to be UNFAITHFUL to Our GOD. This is an image of modern American Christianity as we are called to be a Royal Priesthood A Holy Nation (1Peter 2:9). Yet we have been married that is to say we have coupled ourselves to the things of this world and have been led astray from the Truth and from The Way in which we are to be living our lives. Separated from the influence and attachments that go along with yoking ourselves to this culture. Lots wife perished for her love of the things of her world (Genesis 19:26). We are called to be “in the world but not of the world” (John 17:11,14-15).

To paraphrase Christ Jesus’ teaching he states in the Gospels (Mt. 12:30 , Mk. 9:40, Lk. 9:50) that those (things or people) that are NOT FOR US are against US. The things and influential people of this world are not for US my fellow Christ follower they are against The LORD GOD and His Messiah and those that would follow them whole heartedly. It is TIME TO SEPARATE, to sever that relationship and PUT them AWAY.

No longer can we be like an unfaithful spouse to Our Lord and Savior, Our Bridegroom, Our GOD. We MUST become fully devoted to Him who is Coming soon for a Bride without Spot or Wrinkle.

He DWELLS in The THICK DARKNESS

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning.

The translated word in the Hebrew Bible is Bereshith (בְּרֵאשִׁית‎): “In beginning”.

B – BET -= the second letter of the Hebrew aleph-bet, alphabet, and it means HOME

V2 Darkness was over the face of the deep (this thick darkness is what we see in the night sky, it fills the cosmos), and the Spirit of GOD (YHWH) was hovering over the waters.

The Heavens DECLARE the Glory of GOD!

There is a distinct boundary established between where GOD ALMIGHTY DWELLS and this place called our planet/galaxy/universe our HOME.

Darkness

Strong’s #6205:

araphel: Gloom, (as of a lowering sky)- gross, thick dark (cloud)

#6201 araph: droop drip down

Thick

Strong’s #3515: kabade: heavy, too heavy,

#3513:kabad; heavy laden glory also see kabode #3519

The Heavy weighty manifest presence of GOD, HIS GLORY descended upon the earth.

Exodus 19, 24, 33

For forty days and forty nights, Moche (Moses) did dialogue and fellowship, and intercede with ALMIGHTY GOD in radiant splendor. YHWH allowed Himself to pass by as Moses was Hidden in the Cleft of The Rock. We will ALWAYS find Refuge when we abide in The Rock!

He wears the darkness as a cloak, a garment to conceal HIS Radiant Splendor to those which may be destroyed by it before it can be revealed to them in due season.

A depiction of The Mountain of GOD, as recorded in Exodus

Moses was instructed to inform All the people not to approach His Glory unless they die. Dying to self and the things of the carnal nature ALWAYS will perish in the presence of A Holy and Righteous GOD. However, we see Joshua ben (son of) Nun, was always near Moses, he too was upon the Mountain of GOD as it thundered and shook. Again, he was always near Moses as he was near The LORD GOD at The Tabernacle. Yet he did not perish but was commissioned by The Lord GOD Himself to be Moses’ successor. He chose God over life; he would rather know and experience for himself God’s glory then let it be translated by another means.

For The Glory that awaited Him, He endured The Cross

The Lord Jesus declared  in Luke “if any man follow me he must deny himself and take up his cross. For whosoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life FOR ME and for the Gospel (of Jesus Christ) will Save IT.”

We know where the cross led Christ. Death to the flesh always comes before the revelation of His FIRE & His Glory.

Psalms 18:7-13(paraphrased)

King David The Worshipper sang this song when he was liberated from his enemies.

The earth trembled and quaked, SMOKE rose from his nostrils, a Consuming FIRE came from His mouth, burning coals blazed out of it. He parted the heavens (The cloak was peeled back to reveal) and came down, DARK clouds were under His feet. He made DARKNESS his canopy around Him. Out of the brightness of His presence clouds advanced (Thick Darkness), with hailstones and lightning. The LORD Thundered from heaven, The Voice of The MOST HIGH RESOUNDED!

We do not “see” with unveiled eyes, but rather they are veiled to protect us from that which we are not in this current state capable of withstanding. In examples such as Samson’s parents, or Gideon, and other instances of encounters with The Living and True GOD, these people ALL died at that moment to themselves and were changed forever.  We do not see clearly now but someday we will see All things clearly and see HIM for who He really is.

Mark 13:24-26

…the sun will be DARKENED, and the moon will not give its light, the stars will fall from the sky and the heavenly boides will be SHAKEN.  At that TIME men will SEE The Son of Man coming in the Clouds (Thick Darkness) and with GREAT POWER and GLORY.

Revelation 1:7 Behold! He is coming with the Clouds.

Rev. 1:12-17 (paraphrased)

I turned around to see The Voice that was speaking, when I saw Him I fell at His feet as though dead. His appearance was as a “son of man” dressed in a robe reaching to His feet and with a golden sash around His chest. His head and hair were white like wool, His eyes were like blazing Fire. His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and His Voice was like the sound of rushing waters and out of His mouth came a sharp double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.

Revelation 19: 11

I saw heaven Standing Open (The Cloak fully removed) and there before me was a White horse, whose RIDER IS CALLED Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes WAR. His eyes are like blazing FIRE, and on His head are many crowns. He has a Name written on Him that No one knows but He Himself. He is dressed in a Robe dipped in blood, and His Name is the WORD of GOD

Every EYE Shall See HIM, When He splits Time and Space!

He Dwells in The Thick Darkness . But ALL Light , Truth , and Glory EMMINATES from Him.

THE KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS

The Spirit and the Bride say COME!

Anointed and Appointed

In the Book of Exodus Moses receives instruction from The Lord God, first at the burning bush, then again on the mountaintop of Sinai. The instructions state simply that there are THREE (3) specified times that The Lord God has anointed and appointed as “meeting” times with Him, times to come to sacrifice, and to worship Him!

These three anointed and appointed times are known as “FEASTS” Our God loves to have “joyful family gatherings” and are as detailed in the following.

These Anointed and Appointed times are established to assemble, follow, and understand as the basis of which are the types and shadows of The Messianic Promises.

The First of these three divinely Anointed and Appointed Festivals;

  1. Springtime Festivals (Feasts) Appointed Time 7 days Appointed
    • Length of Feast and Appointed Dates: 14th Nisin, 15th-21st Nisin
    • 10th of Nisin -14th Nisin

Passover: 10th Nisin – 14th Nisin; Sacrificial Lamb. Inspected 4 days, slaughtered and Blood applied for “Salvation” or deliverance from “Judgement”

Unleavened Bread: 15th – 21stYeast (SIN) Made in haste to flee Egypt, Doctrines of men and devils, is part of the Feast Week.

First Fruits: Presented 3 days after Passover for the upcoming harvest, that the harvest would be made plentiful and blessed, that the rest of the (Barley/Wheat) harvest. Jesus fulfilled, that is He IS the First Fruits. First Fruits is observed as the offering of first fruits on the first Sabbath after Passover. Resurrection Sunday [Harvest] That as He was found Worthy, He makes the Way for the Remainder of the Harvest to be brought forth. As well as His ascension to be seated at the Right Hand of The Father.

Selected, Inspected, Slaughtered, Buried, Resurrected. Symbolic of the actual fulfillment on these specific dates, Anointed and Appointed in Yeshua HaMeshiach (Meshiach means Anointed One)

(Exodus, A Mighty Hand and an Outstretched Arm) YHWH.. Behold Hands Behold Nails

So in Jesus (Yeshua) we see ALL Three symbolic/prophetic meanings fulfilled in Messiah. Down to the exact and specific dates. Sounds like GOD!

Next in Line of “Anointed and Appointed” times according to God’s instructions is

2. Summer Time Festival (Feast) Apponited Time

Feast of Weeks (Harvest/Pentecost): 49 days after Passover, at Mt. Sinai, Moses received the WORD (Law) of GOD.

Seven weeks after Passover, is the Feast of Weeks (Pentecost = 50) from the Greek Septuagint.

34:22 “Celebrate the Feast of Weeks with the firstfruits of the wheat harvest,”


Pentecost concluded the Feast of Weeks, which began with a day for the offering of first fruits on the first Sabbath after Passover (Lev. 23:10-11), and ended fifty days later, with what came to be known as the primary celebration of firstfruits.

Ten days (10 another significant symbolic number throughout scripture) after Yeshua (Jesus) ascended into heaven (from Mt. of Olives). The Feast of Pentecost had fully come [Acts 2:1] The disciples of Messiah were ALL gathered (ecclesia) in UNITY. The place was shaken and with a mighty rushing Wind and with fire The promised Holy Spirit of God arrived and just like in Exodus the WORD was given! Written not upon tablets of stone but of flesh. And the implementation of The Messianic Covenant had begun. The Church Age (dispensation of grace) or it could be referred to as The Time of the Gentiles was underway. And as stated by Peter the prophecy of Joel had started.

This also being related to agricultural terms, the feast was an observance of the barley and wheat harvest. (Gentile/Jew)

Again we see fulfillment in Messiah as First fruits to His promise to send another…

4 ot the 7 distinct festival observances that lie within the three (3) Anointed and Appointed types and shadows have been fulfilled by Yeshua in accordance to the specifically ordained dates and seasons , there remain 3 observances to fully complete God’s specified ordinances for mankind.

Thirdly we see the Feasts of the Autumn time frame of which is the culmination of the annual festivals.

3: First day of Seventh month (Tishri), 1st,10th, 15th-22.

Feast of Trumpets: 1st of Tishri. The Shofar will be blown, the origin of this Feast does not have anything in general to “Rosh Hashanah” as that is more tradition than Torah (Law; first 5 books of the bible) observance. The blowing of the shofar is the ALARM call for repentance and getting right with God Almighty, leading to another 10 day period.

10 Days of Awe: Repentance and preparedness of the wonderous working power of God, His past works and for that which He will do in the future.

Day of Atonement: The 10th day of Tishri. A day in which the Lamb, the red heifer, and the scapegoat would be sacrificed, burned, and cast out accordingly. The High Priest would enter the Holy of Holies only during this time to place the blood upon the Mercy Seat for the forgiveness of the sins of the nation (people).

Since the destruction of Solomon’s Temple (the first temple) there has not been an Arc of the Covenant/Mercy seat to receive the Atoning Blood, and since 70 AD the nation of Israel has not even had a temple to partake in on the day of Atonement.

Red Heifer: Very rare and any potential candidate is currently being highly guarded in Israel for a potential day of atonement sacrifice to re-consecrate the 3rd Temple.

Azazel: scape goat (SIN) Baphomet (Pan) Two horned goat image of satan/seed. Tradition states that a scarlet thread was attached to the horns and as the priest laid his hands (placing the sin) on it, it was then to be sent to the wilderness, however the custom of the day was they would take the scapegoat to a high hill and cast it down, the scarlet thread would turn white, signifying the peoples sin had been cleansed.

Feast of Tabernacles: Booths/Tents/ Sukkot/dwellings

In Exodus The Lord says this is to remind Israel that during their 40 year wandering in the desert that God had them dwell in booths.

This is the MOST current significant of the remaining Feast times, as this Feast of Tabernacles is commonly known as the In-gathering . For those not familiar with agricultural practices, the In-gathering is an event separate but linked to the “Harvest”. Harvest time is when you go into the field and harvest the fruit, then if needed it would then go to the “Threshing Floor” to separate the grain from the husk then ALL good grain, grapes, olives, etc. would be “In-Gathered” to the storehouse (Barn).

These Anointed and Appointed Times have not yet seen its fulfillment as it pertains to Messiah and His ministry and Kingdom, when the Trumpet sounds “The Last Trump” shofar of heaven. Could this be the Trump spoken by Paul concerning the “Rapture” of the church? Or is the feast of Tabernacles that event as we are In-gathered to King Jesus’s Father’s Kingdom. Remember Jesus words. “In My Fathers’ House are many Rooms, I go to “prepare” a place for you so that where I am you may be also. Dear believer we will someday be “Gathered In” and brought to a place that The LORD has been preparing for some 2,000 years.

As I finish writing this at sundown today we enter The Day of Atonement for the Hebrew/Jewish year of 5782. which coincidentally is also a 7th year of Sabbatical Year (Shemitah) There are No coincidences with The Living God!

https://www.gotquestions.org › The-ShemitahThe Shemitah (sometimes spelled Shemittah or Shmita) is the final year in a seven-year cycle of debt forgiveness and land use prescribed for Israel in the …

As stated above and specified in scripture these three “Anointed and Appointed” times are not merely “Jewish” festivals for they belong to The Lord God and are His, outlining His glorious plan of salvation for Israel and ALL of humanity. I truly hope, and it is My prayer in writing this, is to bring some hunger and thirsting for truth in The Body of Christ, to gain a better understanding and appreciation for those things that The Lord Our God has instructed, and not merely rely upon the traditions of man. His Anointed and appointed times, three in total but they encompass so much more.

Three Anointed and Appointed times, 7 days in each Festival observance with specific details to be discovered in each aspect in regards to The Messianic Covenant and Almighty God’s Redemptive Plan. A Jewish Wedding lasted 7 days, The time of Jacobs Trouble again 7 days or years. Will The Feast of Tabernacles usher in The Wedding Supper of The Lamb, while those on earth experience Satan’s 7 year reign of horror? We eagerly await God’s fulfillment of ALL things He has Ordained. https://awatchmenonthewall.com/2020/11/06/watch-prepare/

Special side note: You DO NOT see in any of these sacred times, December 25th “Christmas” nor do you see “Easter” especially eggs and bunnies for those observances we must look into Pagan culture and ancient rituals of worship of the starry hosts and names such as Ishtar (Isis or Inannah), Nimrod (Baal or Molech) , Tammuz (Pan or Baphomet), that is to say Mystery Babylon.

A Line in the Sand

We have heard of “The shot heard around the world.”, no I am not speaking of an insignificant bit of baseball trivia. I am speaking of the start of the Revolutionary War in America at Lexington and Concord. An example of a David vs Goliath battle. The colonies and Minute Men, taking on the British Empires World dominating miltary. A fight for freedom and liberty, to be released, set free, from the shackles of tyranny and the control of the few over the many.

America has been the beacon around the world over the centuries and decades as a light of hope and opportunity for all that wished to be “free” to pursue their dreams and desires for themselves and their descendants.

Over the past few decades we have seen an erosion of what our nation truly was suppossed to be.

On September 9th 2021, Joe Biden, as “President of the United States of America” declared on global news with a “stern face” “we have been patient with you! Our patience is wearing thin. GET VACCINATED”

They have drawn the Line for Me, this is where I Stand!

The president has just drew “a line in the sand” against the citizenry of these United States, no longer is this a government of the (common) people, by the (common) people, for the (common) people. No this is now of the elite, by the elite, and strictly for the elite. COMPLY or ELSE! He has in facto fired the first shot.

We see this whole covid 19 Corona (Crown) virus politicized from day 1 as a weapon of opportunity, it is no longer just about a questionable and debateable viral injection, this is ALL about control and will you submit to the subjagation of tyranny and authority of the Global Powers aka New World Order [see posts titled Nimrod Rising, New World Order Old World Agenda].

All of this is paving the way, rapidly I might add, for the collapse of socieites as we know and from the chaos the emergence of The One to oversee and implement his New/One World Order ( the orchestrator of the chaos).

In the Book of The Revelation of Jesus Christ, the author, The Apostle John writes in the 13th chapter, starting in verse 16: “He also FORCED everyone , small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a MARK…so that NO ONE could buy or sell unless they had the MARK,”. NIV emphasis added

I am not implying nor am I denying that the psuedo-vaccine is the MARK, or that Joe Biden is that “him”. However I do strongly believe that all of what is before us today is setting the stage for and allowing the powers that be to observe the responses, for the implementation of that day/time. We are on that cusp of prophecy!

Jesus instructed His disciples in Mathew 24 and 25 to “Therefore KEEP WATCH” and to “See” for all the signs regarding his imminent RETURN!

It is of no use to be awake or “woke” if your eyes are closed or worse still cannot discern what you are seeing.

I pray for all that eyes may be open, and hearts softened to the gentle tugs from The Holy Spirit that wishes to bring you into an encounter with The Living Loving Savior of All of mankind. Jesus The Christ! Yeshua HaMashiach!

The Day of Reckoning

Prepare The Way of coming of The LORD!

Psalms 50

The concept of reckoning or to be more accurate reconcilaition refers to the process by which All things are not simply made right, as in an accounting principal (balanced) no this is much more intent and complete, it is a clean slate, it has been wiped clean a new fresh start. Why would we need a fresh clean start, why isnt forgiveness, love, and kindness enough.

We are not dealing with man, or a false idea of who God is. Let the words of Asaph ring TRUTH into our ears and understand the prophetic nature of God’s Word and discern the time in which we as a nation hang in the balance.

Starting in verse 1 “The MIGHTY One, GOD, The LORD SPEAKS and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to the place where it sets”.

Intially we discover that first God, The LORD is Mighty and there is NONE like Him. also, there is a rising and a setting, a completion of a term or cycle. The END of it.

“Our GOD comes and WILL NOT BE SILENT, a FIRE devours before Him, and around Him a tempest rages. He summons the heavens above, and the earth, that He may JUDGE His people. [Psalms 50:3-4] NIV

The timing now is not one of silence but of clear and concise bold confession. There must be a distinct noticaeable and tangible difference between those He is about to JUDGE. God is a “Consuming Fire” as noted throughout scripture. Abraham, Moses, Elijah, John, Peter, and Paul they all knew that He consumes that which is offered up to Him. The chaos is all around, but it is NOT near Him for He is not moved or shaken by anything, He is The One that does the shaking!

“Gather to ME My consecrated ones, who made a covenant with me by sacrifice”. [Ps 50:5]

A fire, a sacrifce, a consectrated – devoted offering made unto the LORD, establishes The TRUE Covenant. Not just those who provide lip service with discontent in their hearts.

“And the heavens proclaim His Righteousness, for GOD Himself IS Judge.” V6.

God alone established His standard so it is God alone that will determine and JUDGE rightly, in regards to the adherence and the value a person they themselves have placed upon it, His WORD. So we see a seperation occuring in the midst of the chaos, those that would follow the principles of God and those that would cast off their restraints and pursue pleasure (safety) unto their own destruction. Here in verses 16-22 God deals directly with those that think themselves wise in this world, and seemingly mock God and His Holy WORD. Some familiar names might pop in to your head as you read.

“But to the wicked, GOD says: “What right have you to recite MY LAWS or take MY COVENANT on your lips? You hate MY Instruction and cast MY WORDS behind you. When you see a theif, you join with him; you throw your lot in with adulterers. You use your mouth for evil and harness your tongue to deceit (lies). You speak continually against your brother and slander your own mother’s son. These things you have done and I kept silent; you thought I was altogether like you.

But I WILL REBUKE you and accuse you to your face.

CONSIDER this, you who forget GOD, or I will tear you to pieces with None to rescue.”

The Day of Reckoning

What an indictment against the “woke” “politically correct” “culture canceling” “religious-inclusiveness” and “race baiting” mantra of todays liberal left and demon-cratic party! Yes they pretend to stand up for God and even quote a scripture every now and again. How dare anyone think they can mock God and it will not return upon their own head. His Day of Reckoning is quickly approaching. And it would be wise to heed the WORDS of THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY..

Psalms 50:23 He who sacrifices Thank offerings honors me, and he Prepares the Way so that I MAY SHOW him the Salvation of GOD.

We as in ALL believers are called to Prepare The Way of the coming of The LORD, as Elijah/John the Baptist, we should be thankful for ALL Gods continued blessing and provision. And GOD Himself will reveal to us His Salvation.

A day is coming, it is not a pleasant day, but one of calamity and grief. The Day of Reckoning will reveal by fire what your house is made of.

Consecrate to seperate. The Sheep from the goats and the Wheat from the tares!

The Way of salvation, God or Yah IS salvation, we call Him Yeshua or Jesus. Do you KNOW HIM?

Prophecy or Discernment

Does it take a Prophet to see what is going on in the state, national, and even global geo-political spectrum to understand we are living in “Prophetic” times? We can and should be able to state the obvious We are Living in The Last Days, the days leading up to the following events for human history.

The Apostasy or “falling” away; as many so called self prophesed “christians” will conduct themselves in a more and more wordly fashion, nations will continue to sink lower and lower into “Depravity”. In the mean time God will be advancing His Kingdom for a final threshing for the The Great Harvest. Time to gather the grapes.

The Rapture or “taken/caught Up”; The Body of Christ (Bride) in the earth will be removed. The Body is the container of The Holy Spirit of God and will likewise be “taken” out of the Way to “reveal” the Lawless One.

The False Prophet and Messiah or global universal inclusive religion and the one that shall restore “order” from the chaos. He will bring “economic stability” and “peace” to the nations including The Covenant with Israel, preparing the way for the Third Temple. Which will bring about a psuedo peace for a moment in time, that appears on the surface to be “Utopia” on earth. This will be a short lived reign as the Lie and deception eventually comes to the light of day.

WAR will inevitiably return to the Middle East this time with ALL the nations, most noted will be Gog and Magog; Russia and Turkey, Assyria; Syria and Mosul, Babylon; Iraq and Iran, China 2 million man Army marches for the oil fileds. All turned toward Israel and Jerusalem in particular. The winepress of His fury has been filling the cup of judgement and destruction and is about to be released upon humankind.

A prophet does not need to see or hear that which has been already given. But to be a student and discerner of God’s WORD. To gain understanding to the revelation already revealed. The Prophet MUST be the intrument that sounds the alarm, that blows the shofar loudy for ALL to hear. The Watchman is the Standard for these End Times. To see and to discern, and to make known, the approaching condition as mans final days until all prophecy and scripture is fufilled.

Make hast and make ready, be watchful, and as obedient children of the “light” rescue as many as are held in darkness and captivity.

The Lord Bless you and keep you

The LORD make His FACE Shine upon you and be gracious to you

The LORD lift up His countenance to you and give you PEACE.

Stand Firm with your Sheild ready.

Choosing a Destiny

Is it risky as well as being found worthy, to become identified with a person, a group, or an ideal and to speak or to declare your choice boldly and courageously and then be willing to be known by that stance and that decree. In the Book of John the 8th chapter verses 12-47; Jesus testifies to the religious leadersip that their father (abba) was a Murderer, a Theif, and a Liar from the beginning. He referred to him as the devil/satan. That they didnt “know” God the Father (Abba) for if they had they would have known Him, the Christ. However shortly afterwards they confirmed in truth who was indeed their abba resulting in the identifying and labeling of their heritage.

After interrogating Jesus, Pilate offered to release a wicked man, who was known and imprisoned for being a liar, a thief, a murderer. His name “Barabbas” or Barabba, which means in Greek/Hebrew “son of my father”. When faced with the choice between releasing Jesus (YHWH is Salvation) whom being found innocent by Pilate, they choose him who represented their father, Barabbas. Thus sealing their destiny and declaring themselves the sons of their father the devil. [Matthew 27, Jn 18:40]

This is not an indictment of just the religious of the day, for we all have often made that same choice in less signifacant terms, however we presently find ourselves in a moment in time where we must make a hard choice of the two and declare who is Our Father, Our Abba, to whom we will be identified with. The other side is the side of the world, and its values and views, the one that rules that kingdom…bar abba…is seeking those for whom he may devour, to be his children of disobedience.

We must as believers answer the call and commit to the urgent task ahead as the early church did, that is this. Christ Jesus is about to return, and were moved (by the Spirit of God) to spread the Gospel. Reaching out in every nook and cranny of every town and city to redeem men for God, to fill His Storehouse!

Many prophetic scriptures point to a coming moment in time, when The LORD God Almighty will summon His Son, it is Time, Go and fetch your Bride from the earth. We will be harvested, that is gathered together unto Him. Into His Father’s House and be there with Him for eternity. I know of a certainty which Abba is mine and to whom I belong, which side of the Line I stand upon.

The LINE is not clouded nor obscurred, it is quite clearly seen by all. It is TIME my dear friend to choose your side as the Lord of Heaven declares in Rev. 3:14-16 paraphrased here slightly …I wish you were either HOT or COLD but since you are Lukewarm I will vomit you out! No longer can we straddle the LINE, one foot in the world with one foot in the kingdom of God. There is no longer any “gray” area, a middle of the road faith or Christianity. It is time to be ALL IN!

You Get to Choose Your Destiny!!!

The Grand Prize

What is the purpose of life? What is the purpose of man? Are we all that there is in the galaxy, the universe? These questions have been pondered and asked through the millenia of mans existence. So is there an answer to these fundamental and essential inquiries? I would like to take a moment to address and contemplate possible answers and or perspectives to these monumental questions.

Let’s first look at man, to be more specific humanity. We are much like all the other creatures we share this planet with yet we are completely different in the sense we have the unquie ability to alter and change our environment and our understanding. So man is of this planet yet something mysteriously seems to demand that we are so much more than our co-inhabitants.

The Bible tells us that we like the animals of the field, came from the dust of the ground, so chemically we are made of the same biological material, yet every system and kind is unique to its very own species, the same is true as for fruit and or green herb bearing seed, the ability to reproduce; that is to replicate its species. So what really makes man totaly uniquie MUST be found in the following passage; …Genesis 2:7″ -The LORD God… breathed into him the “breath of life” (breath or spirit: Ruach in Hebrew is the word for the Holy Spirit )and man became a “living” soul. This “soul” or conscience being is what is described as in God’s likeness, and in His image and he was ALIVE living in God’s presence. Not one of the rest of ALL the species in all of the abundance of Life on this planet was given this same quality. So if the Bible is true, in regards to our uniquness at the time of creation, then it might help us to explain some of the questions mentioned above. So it is from that perspective and platform which we shall embark to derive for some concludable answer to these same inquiries.

Two events occurred in the Book of Genesis [2:16,17] [3:1-24] that also need to be mentioned and briefly expounded upon. Firstly, lets take look at The Tree of The “Knowledge” of Good and Evil, and The Tree of Life. This is really the “genesis” or the beginning of Understanding to answering our questions. In summary God had told mankind (Adam=man/Eve=all man comes from) they could not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil or they would surely die. The “serpent” subtly and manipulatively deceived them into “corruption” and death came into the world, this death is mostly applied to the death as in now being seperated from God and our “conscience being” no longer in God’s image but rather in the image of the “serpent”, the image of “a corrupted entity”. So from the very beginning of our existence we have been engaged in this turmoil of which image we desire to choose for ourselves. An image of corruption or the image of God that fashioned us. Lets define this corrupt image as sin, and define the God image as Righteous. The Tree of the “Knowledge” of good and evil vs. The Tree of Life. As soon as mankind made the choice of the “corrupt” tree God instantly placed a barrier to the Tree of Life, so that mankind could not eat of it and be forever lost in and to “corruption” sin. Almost like it was scripted, the plan was laid out for how God would provide a “WAY” for mankind to be re-established in “TRUTH” and Righteousness and eat freely from The Tree of “LIFE”. Now for the Second event in Genesis, that will hopefully leads to the answers we seek. After corrupting themsleves mankind and the earth itself was sentenced to produce hardships and burdensome labor to include child bearing in agony simply to receive that which was once provided freely from the earth. Also this, The LORD God declared this sentence upon the “Corrupt serpent” a human being (man) shall crush his head and the serpent shall bruise his heel. Now we are beginning to see a strategy and plan unfold throughout the course of human history, the plan we shall call “The Scarlet Thread of Redemption” its purpose is for God himself to provide a sacrifice in order to redeem a corrupted species and be restored not only to its original condition, but elevated beyond anything anyone other than the “serpant” fully could comprehend. Eternity in Glory with The LORD God, The Creator of All things.

To put this plan into action would require nations, kings and kingdoms and millenia as well as implementing covenants, timing, and execution of the plan, to go from The Garden, thoughout human history up til today. The Lord God laid out His redemptive plan and allowed humans their very own part to play in His divine strategy. It is For mankind, and implemened through mankind, but make certain to note that it is God’s plan. It is declared in scripture through the psalter as follows. Psalms 8:4,5 & Hebrews 2:6-7 “Who is man that you are mindful of him, or the son of man that you care for him. You made him (mankind) a little lower (made of dust/dirt) than the angels (spiritual entities of such is the “serpent”) and crowned him with Glory and Honor”. And again in Hebrews 1:5 “To which of the angels did God ever say You are my Son;”… finally in Philippians 2:6-11 v.9 “…God has given him THE name (Ha Shem) which is above evey name…”.

So here we see the glimpse of the Grand Prize and the answers to our questions.

Who is man?

We are and were created not only in the image of our Creator- LORD God, but we were destined from the dust of the earth to inherit a place among the immortal glorious beings in an undescribale glorious kingdom. Not only as residents but as Heirs of The Way The Truth and The Life, The only begotten Son of God and Son of Man. As joint heirs we find ourselves in a place of relational authority which is higher than that of the created Angelic Host. To this end, which is why that old serpent the devil, Satan hates ALL of humanity and it bothers him not one tiny bit how he may deceive or blind or confuse the massess to their own ruin and destruction for he knows his own fate. He also knows quite well the Glory that awaits for those that would Seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness. We shall become that which he forefeited by his rebellion, The Instruments of Praise and Worhip to the Only True God and King.

What is our purpose?

To make known to as many as would believe “The Scarlet Thread of Redemption”. Which is none other than this; The Lord God provided Himself a sacrificial lamb, by whose blood there is complete, not only removal of the “corrupted” image – sin, but a restoration of the True image we were created for; Fellowship and relationship with Our God and His Kingdom of Righteousness, it is not earned or worked for, nor can it be purchased it is simply confirmed by the commitment of your heart and soul.

Are we alone?

Obviously we are not alone, as hosts of angelic beings are described throughout all of scripture (in Hebrew they are called the “bena ha Elohim” or sons of god in Genesis 6 and Job 1) and are on both sides of the battlefield, and make NO MISTAKE about it it is a battlefield, and the War being waged is for the “Redemption of the Souls of mankind”.

We do not see all that there is to see in Truth, only what these natural eyes can see.

Eyes have not seen nor ears heard what awaits in store for those that hear His voice and endure with patience and long suffering, until ALL is completed that has been declared from the beginning.

The Grand Prize is this. Jesus of Nazereth who for the joy and Glory that awaited him on the other side endured the Cross, we get to encounter and partake in this Glory and in this Kingdom. He made the plan. He established the Covenants, He came in the Flesh, He paid the price, He has redeemed us from corruption into glory. He is The Way, The Truth, and The Life and He gives us access to The Tree of Life.

Gods Grace – God’s Glory Hebrews 12

There are dimensions or realms and spiritual entities at work all around us both for good and for evil. If we do not embrace the Truth, we will then never be able to engage in the battle. And if we never do either we will never get to experience the joy that is The Grand Prize. Only observe it as we fall into damnation with that old “serpent”.

The choice as it always comes down to, which tree do you wish to eat from and which image do you desire? Choose you this day whom you shall serve, make it a wise choice for today could impact eternity not only for yourself but for anyone you encounter.

GOD Bless each and everyone of you, and I thank you taking time to read my blogs, and above all else I hope it speaks to your soul.
