Center of The Earth

I recieved an email recently that talks about how Elohim tells Abraham, Jacob and Moses to look North, South, East and West.  Not always in that order, but.
God to Abram:
…raise now your eyes and look out
from where you are North, South, East and West.

(Genesis 13:14)
 God to Jacob:
…and you should spread out
to the West, East, North and South…

(Genesis 28:14)
God to Moses:
…raise your eyes
to the West, North, South, and East…

(Deuteronomy 3:27)

To hear look North, South, East, and West signifies that you are at the center of everything.

Ezekiel 5:5  "Thus saith the Lord GOD; This is Jerusalem: I have set it in the midst of the nations and countries that are round about her."

And now to quote Jerusalem Mayer, Nir Barkat, "The vision I have for the city is return Jerusalem to the role it played two and three thousands years ago as a world center . . ."

Our Father's eyes are on His people and His land.

2 Samuel 7:23-24 And what one nation in the earth is like thy people, Israel, whom Elohim went to redeem for a people to himself, and to make him a name, and to do for you great things and terrible, for thy land, before thy people, which thou redeemedst to thee from Egypt, from the nations and their gods?
 For thou hast confirmed to thyself thy people Israel to be a people unto thee for ever: and thou, Yahweh, art become their Elohim.

No one has replaced His people spiritually or physically.  The church has not replaced Israel.  He knows who His people are and they are the apple of His eye and one day they will be back in the Land and it will be the center of the world again.

Rain Continued

People say that Christ gave different instructions for us.  We no longer keep Torah.  We are no longer under the law.  I have a joke for you.  A mother tells her son "go take out the trash" son says "Hallelujah! I am no longer under the law, I don't have to do that anymore, have the jew next door take it out."  Our Messiah did not give any new Instructions.  He is the living Torah, the Rock, the Branch, Vine, Fruit, Rod and Seed. 

 Deut. 32:4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a Elohim of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he." 1Cor. 10:1-4 "For I do not want you to be ignorant of the fact, brothers, that our forefathers were all under the cloud and that they all passed through the sea. They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. They all ate the same spiritual food and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ."

The Rock in Deut. is the same Rock in 1Cor. 10:1-4.  That same rock that Moses struck and was told to speak to.  But he struck again.  He got in trouble for that.  Keep Torah and eat of the Tree of Life or do what is right in your own eyes and eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  It is your choice.  Choose Life.

I have heard people call the Torah rain.  But I have never found in the bible where it says that, until today.  As I sit here watching rain come down outside.  We are expecting hurricane Irene later tonight to pass by.  Funny day to come across this scripture.  The Torah is defined as Instruction.  As in His instruction for we are to live.  Just like parents have instructions for their children who live in their house.  If they want to live in the parents house they have to abide by the Father's Instructions. So I came across Deut. 32:2  "My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:"  When you look up the word doctrine:


H3947; properly something received, that is, (mentally) instruction (whether on the part of the teacher or hearer); also (in an active and sinister sense) inveiglement: - doctrine, learning, fair speech.

His Torah, His instruction is the Rain.

Cycles of YHWH

Our Father does not work on a timeline.  He works in cycles.  As in the wheel within the wheel (Ezekiel 1:16)  The problem with dispensationalism is people tend to think that our Father has changed but He says "He changes not".  Our Father is no different today that when He threw Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden.  You know the saying "history repeats itself" well that comes from Ecc. 1:9 "The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun." It is true.  He works in cycles.  Dispensationalism is a lie and if you believe that then that opens the door to believe replacement theology.

Bride or Prostitute, Which One Are You?

I recently received an email from a friend in Australia.  It was one of those emails that really make you think.  A man had the privilege of teaching at a school of ministry.  His students were very hungry for the Word.  One day he quoted to them from Rev. Sam Pascoe a short history of the Church: 

"Christianity started in Palestine as a fellowship; it moved to Greece and became a philosophy; it moved to Italy and became an institution; it moved to Europe and became a culture; it came to America and became an enterprise.”  Some of the students were only 18 or 19 years old, barely out of diapers, and I wanted them to understand and appreciate the import of the last line, so I clarified it by adding, "An enterprise. That's a business." After a few moments Martha, the youngest student in the class, raised her hand. I could not imagine what her question might be. I thought the little vignette was self-explanatory, and that I had performed it brilliantly. Nevertheless, I acknowledged Martha's raised hand, "Yes, Martha." She asked such a simple question, "A business? But isn't it supposed to be a body?" I could not envision where this line of questioning was going, and the only response I could think of was, "Yes." She continued, "But when a body becomes a business, isn't that a prostitute?"

Wow, what a statement.  We already know from scripture that Elohim says that his people prostituted themselves to other lovers. The Israelites often played the "whore" of the relationship by "prostituting" themselves to other gods.  Judges 8:33  “And it came to pass, as soon as Gideon was dead, that the children of Israel turned again, and went a whoring after Baalim, and made Baalberith their god.”  Baalim was a prophet for hire. He was your guy for the right amount of money.  Need I say more? 

My husband and I left the church over a year ago, for many reasons. One of the many was that we knew there were things that were going on in church that was wrong and we decided enough and never went back.   Funny, at the time, not realizing what exactly we were “coming out of” but am thankful we did.  See, I had started going to the financial meetings.  It was very eye opening.  The pastor would stand and speak along with the financial guy.  The economy had started its downfall.  The church laid off people and started this “campaign” for funds.  The pastor had said that many of the “good” tithers had left and that many new people had started coming to church that had the potential of being good tithers.  “It was time to pull out the tithing sermons”, he said.  I was appalled. It was a business meeting.  Some time before that I had tried to be more involved in the church and decided that I would bake for the coffee shop that was off the sanctuary.  I had received an email about what they expected.  One of the details was that the cookies/brownies had to be a certain size and not to get extravagant (I would get reimbursed for what I bought), because we are “trying to make money you know”.  I baked twice and let them know I was no longer available.  I was just taken back by this.  I just kept thinking, am I attending church or shopping at a business?  Now, when I look back I can see the whole picture.  And that is usually how it has been throughout this whole “coming out of”. We took a step of faith and it wasn’t until we walked away from something that we saw how bad it really was, i.e. christmas, halloween, easter, etc.  

In the email, the gentleman goes on to say “that he pondered was he really a true lover of Elohim? What would happen if He stopped blessing me? What if He never did another thing for me? Would I still love Him? Please understand, I believe in the promises and blessings of Elohim. The issue here is not whether Elohim blesses His children; the issue is the condition of the heart. Why do I serve Him? Are His blessings in my life the gifts of a loving Father, or are they a wage that I have earned or a bribe/payment to love Him? Do I love Elohim without any conditions?”

He said, “That American Christians do not really love Him and that it originates in how they came to Him.  Most of us came to Him because of what we were told He would do for us. We were promised that He would bless us in life and take us to heaven after death. We married Him for His money, and we don't care if He lives or dies as long as we can get His stuff. We have made the Kingdom of Elohim into a business, merchandising His anointing. This should not be. We are commanded to love Elohim and are called to be the Bride of the Messiah ~ that's pretty intimate stuff. We are supposed to be His lovers. How can we love someone we don't even know? And even if we do know someone, is that a guarantee that we truly love them? Are we His bride or have we prostituted ourselves to others?” 

We are told repent and accept Christ and let Him into our lives.  But as I have said before repent means to turn back to Him, to the starting point of Torah.  The Church talks of Grace and yes, He is full of Grace but that Grace is what allows us back in and His Grace was never meant to be greasy. 

Jude 1:4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our Elohim into lasciviousness, and denying the only Adonai Elohim, and our Adoniai Yahushua.

What is lasciviousness? By definition it is wantonness, lack of self control, and reckless freedom.  That does not sound like fruit to me.  We have a choice.  We are given free will and like the Israelites in the wilderness, He gave them the Torah, His Instruction for His people. He tells them, “I put before you blessings or curses.”  One brings life and one brings death.  "Therefore, choose Life."  The Bride chooses Life.  She chooses to prepare herself for her bridegroom.  Which one are you?

False Prophets

How do we know who is a False Prophet?

Deut. 13:1-5
If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,
And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;
Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the Yahweh your Elohim proveth you, to know whether ye love the Yahweh your Elohim with all your heart and with all your soul.
Ye shall walk after the Yahweh your Elohim, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the Yahweh your Elohim, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the Yahweh thy Elohim commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.

So, if someone comes along who does signs and wonders and tells you to go after other gods and not walk after Yahweh, fear him and keep his commandments and obey his voice then he is a false prophet.

2 John 1:9,10 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Yahushua, hath not Elohim. He that abideth in the doctrine of Yahushua, he hath both the Father and the Son.
If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him Elohim speed:

So we see that if someone does not abide in the instruction of Yahushua they have not Yahweh, but he that does abide in the instruction of Yahushua has both the Father and the son. Now what is the instruction of Yahushua?

The word doctrine in Greek means Instruction, just like in Hebrew, the word Law (Torah) means Instruction.

John 8:28 Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.

John 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

We know that Yahushua only spoke the Father's words which was the Old Testament. He was the Word made Flesh, the Living Torah, from the beginning (John 1:1).

1 John 2:4 He that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

So if a pastor, preacher or anyone comes along saying they know Him, doing signs and wonders but don't keep the commandments of Yahweh, there is no Truth in them and they are not of Yahweh.

Ephesians 2:1-2 And you [hath he quickened], who were dead in trespasses and sins; wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the sons of disobedience:

Sons of disobedience??? To what?

Ephesians 5:6-10 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of Elohim upon the sons of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Yahweh: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Yahweh.

Sons of disobedience do not walk in the commandments therefore there is no light in them. They follow the false prophets. Do no walk as them and become partakers with them. Reminds me of the saying from the movie Forrest Gump "RUN FORREST!!!" We should not walk as them, but run away, run far away.
