2-24-14 ~Kadosh Adonai Elohim

 Abba Kadosh Elohim Adonai Yehushua


Galatians 3

King James Version (KJV)
 O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?
This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
Have ye suffered so many things in vain? if it be yet in vain.
He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? .                                 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.
And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.
So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.
11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.
12 And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.
13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
15 Brethren, I speak after the manner of men; Though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.
16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect.
18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by promise.
19 Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.
20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.
21 Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.
22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.
23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

In this Chapter, Paul is directing his commentary to the followers of the Torah, those following Judaism who saught the counsel of Rabbis and Sages; who believed they were descendants of Abraham. Paul clearly defines here that God made a specific distinction which speaks of the spirit of adoption, not of geneology. Since Jesus fulfilled every prophecy in his life and through his death, He fulfilled the law on behalf of all those who would Believe upon him, salvation then relies upon spirit belief, not doctrinal law.

 God designed the words of the Bible in its precise vernacular and meaning to point to Jesus, to point out this critical and crucial hinge pin. The simple truth hidden in full view, meaning Jesus the Messiah and king, who first came in a lowly form, but shall return in His magnificence. They expected great pomp and fluff and they therefore rejected the king (literally judging a book by its cover) The inherent bloodline now flows through the vine of the spirit of belief to those under Gods Grace, they are grafted in through Faith!

The Jewish nation by creed needs to receive this truth. The apple of God’s eye which is blinded by the trees of the grove it resides in! They did not see the forest for the trees. Our Jewish Brothers and Sisters are those sheep that have stubbornly begrudged the nudging of Spirit! Without the Holy Spirit baptismal faith and it’s alignment with Christ, Salvation & heaven is not possible; no inheritance of Abraham is entitled to the illegitimate. 

The Messianic movement into this enlightened awakening is embarking upon the dawning of a new day, Glory to God for the remnant! The bridegroom is ready and there is no time to tarry! God wishes that none would perish! God’s word stated all along to follow the law, keepeth the Law, when Jesus transitioned into Chist-hood, He being the living word made the Law under His subjection to save our souls!  He fulfilled the law and is now the fulfillment of the written word! It is He, the bridegroom which cometh!

I Invite you to research this link I am providing, regarding a a very prominent Rabbi of Israel who passed a few years ago. His name was Yitzhak Kaduri. He saw the face of the Jewish Messiah, he died at 108 years of age, he left a sealed envelope with instructions for it to be opened one year after his death. In the sealed envelope he revealed to his people that the name of the messiah is Jesus Christ. He also stated that the Messiah would return after the passing of Ariel Sharon, who remained in a coma until just this year, Ariel Sharon passed away on January 11, 2014.

Heavenly Father, I plead the blood of the Lamb protection over me and mine, over all who read and hear this. Lord, reveal Your truth to every ear that needs to hear it. The time is drawing near and so many have yet to be awakened. They believed You not when they had You right in front of them, OH Lord, what is it that would change them now, except for the faith of a few, that we must earnestly pray for our brothers and sisters. Our siblings who are first born of You, and we who have been gifted such an honor as to be also called Your children. Thank you Lord, that You give us this opportunity to, in turn ask for their restoration. They are in danger and we weep for them. Let Your Holy Spirit pour out Lord, and let the wind of this restoration blow across the Nation of Israel, upon their hearts wherever they reside. In the Mighty name of Jesus Yehushua, Our soon coming King!
AMEN

Divine to define! 2-17-14


 
Psa 51:6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the
hidden [part] thou shalt make me to know wisdom

Signals, the purpose and the reason ….


So, if we look at all the many parts of the body make up a person, each part is valuable & necessary, if part becomes compromised, you are not your arm or your hand but If part becomes compromised you will suffer in some capacity. There are many who are so compromised emotionally & spiritually but yet they perceive themselves as whole. It's not until we come to the Lord that we really get an accurate view of ourselves. We are not independent from God, the source of all, not for one second. It’s just us who are slow to that uptake.

Sure, it's easy to forget, after the umbilical chord is severed, we begin a journey of self discovery, struggle, growth, set backs, conquering odds, yielding to some conditions and remaining resistant to others. The process for some is life long, where as others find out rather quickly; we are not invincible, untouchable or unaffected by tragedy. We all suffer from let downs, set backs & disappointments. In the struggle & endeavor to discover self, many loose themselves and instead take up odd behaviors, strange beliefs and charisma's not of their own. Often times, this is an emotional response to an event that shaped them in some unfortunate way, a hurtful word by someone they looked up to which becomes the "obsessive compulsive behavior" adopted & apparent years later. An overcompensation for a frustration never understood, verbalized, worked out. Bullies at school, friends, siblings & then later in life, it carries into the workplace & social scenes. So many are pre-programmed, running on autopilot for most of their life; 'do this, have that, look like this, go here, be seen there and on it goes!'

The body has aches & pains in order to get our attention; it's a natural part of the body's warning mechanism, it's to protect the vital functioning of the body and prevent malfunction. Children are naturals at NOT disguising this, whether it be physical or emotional; as we get older we learn to mask and to deceive. It's unhealthy, you have to stop burying it....our emotional and physical body is no different. For total health let Christ look at the broken parts, recognizing the pains of the spirit is the beginning of transformation. If you allow yourself to be defined by the world, beware! Without God's design and direction upon our life we are simply corrupt and all the less, unaware! 

This scripture (referenced above) holds a lot of information for us, the beginning of wisdom is fear of the Lord. We know that God has a plan and purpose for us & we can't step into that Divine design until we are ready to take a good hard look at ourselves we can not do that until we submit to the LORD! 

So, I invite you to come to the website, the scripture I mentioned is listed there and a few others, which should provoke you to open up your bible and allow God to start speaking to your spirit, pointing out the areas where maybe you need some help. This is all in an effort to get you to a point where you are healthy and vital, feeling good. The Lord wants us to be useful tools for Him, we can not begin to do that if we are still suffering with the things that are layed on us from the world; "You're not good enough or this or that", we have to define ourselves based on what God designs and His definition. Its from Gods platform that you will find total health and total happiness.



Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

1 Thessolonians 5:23-28
23 May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together - spirit, soul, and body - and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ. 24 The One who called you is completely dependable. If he said it, he'll do it! 25 Friends, keep up your prayers for us. 26 Greet all the Christians there with a holy embrace. 27 And make sure this letter gets read to all the brothers and sisters. Don't leave anyone out. 28 The amazing grace of Jesus Christ be with you!

2 Timothy 2:20-22

But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. 21 Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work. 22 Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
Proverbs 16:3 Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.

Psalm 31:7
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;


Psalm 34:17-18
The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.18 The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

Amnesty is NOW! 2-9-14





video
Today's message ought to prove to be eye opening and ear opening for sure! I was browsing around, happened upon this video clip, actually it's audio BUT it was captured and shared via video. You'll have to go to the website to hear it, in it's entirety. It was originally narrated in 1965 (before my time) but none the less, when you here what is said,  it's astonishing...because all of it has come to pass. Don't believe in the Devil? After listening to this, you should decide differently. 


Beyond that, recognizing a problem is half of the solution. Where does one go from there?! Well, there is repentance and deliverance...BUT what if you have done all of that, yet, still find yourself, knee deep in the quandaries of life? We know the walk as a Christian is not entirely smooth, this is to be expected, BUT I am talking about those situations where you feel like a rat on a perpetual wheel. What gives?!

Well, I'll tell you. It comes in part, through two precious women. One whom I know quite well, we serve in Ministry together and the other, a friend of ours, a mutual acquaintance. I was chatting with my friend over the computer, as we often do from time to time, checking in with each other, for prayer and fellowship. She mentioned something and well, it just resonated with me, as it also did with her, when she had first heard it. This mutual friend, prayed a prayer and the poignant part was this; she asked for God to, "remove & revoke the permission that had been given to the enemy!" POWERFUL! This hit me like a Brick from Heaven! God's word rung in my ear, "You have not because Yee ask Not!" Jesus died on the cross, bringing us salvation, we have that blessed assurance, yes. BUT I'm reminded of Job, he was a Godly man and loved The Lord with his whole heart. So much so, that when Satan approached the throne, seeking access to his life, he was somehow able to acquire access, and later upon realizing this Job was also able to demand that it be revoked! God knew the end from the beginning, that Job would NOT turn away from GOD but rather draw nearer! God knew that Job would be restored, and restored HE SURE was, more so than before he was reduced. He was an extremely wealthy man to begin with; because of satan he lost nearly everything BUT when he was restored, his new wealth made his old wealth seem like chump change! Now that's what you call Double for your Trouble, Seven times greater actually one scripture refers to an hundredfold...

Mark 10:29-30

King James Version (KJV)
29 And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's,
30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
 (Proverbs 6:31) says, "Yet when he (the thief) is found, he must restore sevenfold.” 
Listen to this: anyone that gives up houses, lands, brothers, sisters, possessions in this lifetime for the sake of the gospel, God will restore back one hundredfold now! (Mark 10:29-30)
So,  I am equipped to mention this, Satan is known to be the accuser, going before the throne, seeking to sift us as wheat...Oh yeas until the judgement day he still has access to the high courts, after he convinces or tricks humans into sin, he then goes before our Father and rats us out, he derives pleasure in mocking God, pointing blame at us and hoping to gain a foothold in our lives through the access we grant him, YES that's right, its just wrong!

Ephesian 4:27  Neither give place to the devil.
In Job 1:6, Satan stands in the presence of God. (See 2 Chronicles 18:18-21 for a similar situation involving a “lying spirit.”) Read more: http://www.gotquestions.org/Satan-access.html#ixzz2ss025CGE

So now we know! What to do now?! Well, God is so gracious, He has left us so much evidence of battles won and examples set by those great followers who went before us, like Job.


1. Ask forgiveness for sins, receiving that pardon through the work Jesus did for us on the cross 
2. Repent, commending your life and actions to following The Lord 
3. Renounce any and all interactions or commiserating with the enemy, ask God to revoke the access given!


After listening to that audio, I am sure you'll be able to relate to something described within it, haven't we all fallen short of His glory. We all need to throw ourselves at the mercy of Gods higher court. God is fully aware of His Holy laws and He instructs us to learn it, to know it and to use it. For it just might be the SAVING GRACE that keeps the enemy off your back while we are here!  We have work to do, and as long as the enemy can keep us tied up in spiritual red tape, we are ineffective to the KINGDOM, time to get the pruning sheers out and snip that parasite off!

Kabamm... goes the gavel! And the enemy is getting served his papers LEFT and right!  

What's in store for you at this point?,...read this:

Ephesians 3:20 

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,


"So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten." (Joel 2:25)
This is an incredible promise and very encouraging!

Get that permission REVOKED! There is no place in our hearts or lives for this interference.

God Bless you all, and I truly hope you heard and head this warning!

See you next week, God willing!

Luke 22:31
And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:

Job 1:6
Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.

Rev 12:10
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, who accused them before our God day and night.

My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous (1 John 2:1 emphasis added). 



For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time (1 Timothy 2:5-6 emphasis added). 



But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises (Hebrews 8:6 emphasis added).

  



Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin…But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us (Hebrews 4:14-15; 9:11-12 emphasis added).

2-3-14 Wholly the Holy Word of God









I always find it fascinating when a people refute the validity of the Bible based on a limited knowledge, view or understanding of the work they claim is some how flawed. Let me expound on this; I’ve often come across individuals who’ll offer a sideways comment or even attempt to debate “the bible’ when, quite frankly, they are NOT equipped, nor are they qualified to do so. An unqualified opinion belongs to someone who has no first hand knowledge of the book, subject or in depth study of it’s content. Would you respect a man if he walked up to a surgeon during surgery and told him that he was holding the scalpel wrong or that in his opinion, anesthesia was not necessary?!

There is no greater threat cast across the human mind than that of a self induced, man made God, of one’s own design. Mankind, in general is born helpless & dumb. No one human comes into life knowing it all. BUT yet, an oak tree doesn’t need to be educated on how to be an oak tree; Divine Intelligence has pre-programmed it. That’s the work and handywork of God and who could know it?! When that trees life is over, it will go on to house something or become the pages of a book, like the bible.

Based on the above, facts. Exactly what type of media, publication or source would be more acceptable, believable or profound than the words of Man, as God breathed them and inspired them to be written out. I know several people, in business and life, who upon referring a friend or trusted associate, would ask; “You trust this person?!” when the answer is yes, its almost always followed by, “with my life!” When Man trusts another, it’s a bond of brotherhood. God is not about to erect some epitaph that we couldn’t understand nor perceive to be from Him. If it were foreign, we would reject it. Heck, mankind rejects it anyway because man resists authority. It’s about as un-foreign as it could be, yet the absurdity of mankind would seek instruction from the neighbors psychic before opening the Holy Word God. Man, in his blinded state of ignorance can and has entrusted his most important matters to those who are less qualified than a kindergarten child. …”yes, sir, I would buy that house because I see a vision of you wearing a striped shirt descending from that staircase”….seriously?! . Oh yeah & "Your funshui flow & life path number is 26, there are 56 virgins waiting to receive you, just drink the coolaid!"…..c’mon…enough already!

There are more people in Ministry today than ever who arrived there out of an attempt to refute the bible. Like Saul (Acts 9) on the road to Dasmascus. God will and can work through many and any means to secure His children, even those who are arbitrary and bent on discrediting Him.

The word of God IS already accredited as supernatural based on Fulfillment of Prophecy…

God has repeatedly authenticated the supernatural character of Scripture through prophecy. In Isaiah 40–46, God states that He is distinguished from the other so-called gods in many ways (He is the Creator; He is the One who sits above the circle of the earth; etc.). God alone can tell the future (see especially Isaiah 41:21–29). Since the Bible alone contains detailed predictive and fulfilled prophecy, it alone can qualify as being authenticated by God.
(http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/2009/12/01/written-by-men)

Furthermore, truth be told, there is no other written work to date, more accurate, prophetic and historically sound, in print, to this day, than the canonized word of God! There are cross references that point back to, point forward to and self corroborate (pointing back and forth) to each other. So, essentially, things that were written by one man in one century unwittingly relate to and correspond to what another wrote in another time period, regardless of language and geological location. Those are barriers to any theory that the words or concepts are somehow orchestrated or subjugated by man. That boils down to a feat and an undertaking that can not be feigned or fauxed; it’s the thumbprint of an immutable, omnipresent, all knowing God.


Heavenly Father, Lord God almighty, I plead the blood of the Lamb covering over me and mine over those listening and reading. I thank you Lord, as You are opening the eyes of spiritual understanding and the ears of discernment. Lead Your elect in the ways of righteousness, deliver to those who seek Your face, an encounter of epic proportions. Now more than ever Lord, Your truth and Mercy is needed to ransom the hearts of wayward man. Thank you Father, that someone is enlightened by every one of Your words and that every act of obedience translates to work in the Kingdom of great value, that Your word returns unto You, not void! In the mighty name of Yehushua, our Lord Jesus Christ AMEN!

2 Timothy 3:16-17

King James Version (KJV)
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

2 Peter 1:21

King James Version (KJV)
21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

Isaiah 41:4

New King James Version (NKJV)
Who has performed and done it,
Calling the generations from the beginning?
‘I, the Lord, am the first;
And with the last I am He.’”

Isaiah 41:21-29

New King James Version (NKJV)

The Futility of Idols

21 “Present your case,” says the Lord.
“Bring forth your strong reasons,” says the King of Jacob.
22 “Let them bring forth and show us what will happen;
Let them show the former things, what they were,
That we may consider them,
And know the latter end of them;
Or declare to us things to come.
23 Show the things that are to come hereafter,
That we may know that you are gods;
Yes, do good or do evil,
That we may be dismayed and see it together.
24 Indeed you are nothing,
And your work is nothing;
He who chooses you is an abomination.
25 “I have raised up one from the north,
And he shall come;
From the rising of the sun he shall call on My name;
And he shall come against princes as though mortar,
As the potter treads clay.
26 Who has declared from the beginning, that we may know?
And former times, that we may say, ‘He is righteous’?
Surely there is no one who shows,
Surely there is no one who declares,
Surely there is no one who hears your words.
27 The first time I said to Zion,
‘Look, there they are!’
And I will give to Jerusalem one who brings good tidings.
28 For I looked, and there was no man;
I looked among them, but there was no counselor,
Who, when I asked of them, could answer a word.
29 Indeed they are all worthless;[a]
Their works are nothing;
Their molded images are wind and confusion.
