Remembering My Daddy

Armin, my Daddy lost his wife and two children in the Holocaust. Teddy, a boy, was nine years old and had deep chocolate eyes. Lillian, a girl, was eleven years old with eyes the color of the sky and hair like wheat in the sunlight.
Prior to immigrating, Jews who lost homes were allowed to go back to the cities where they had lived and reclaim their homes should they want to. Most found nothing left to come home too and so they immigrated all over the world.

In the case of my Daddy the people occupying his home allowed him to go into the backyard and dig up a box that he had hidden in the earth. A box filled with treasures, jewelry, and money. These things had no value to him…but the pictures…OH Dear God, the pictures…the images of love and life lost; he gently held close to his heart and brought them with him.

My Daddy had walked his own “Via Delarosa”; his road of suffering. At its end he found only misty memories of the past. Daddy had lived through hell on earth just to be able to touch the hands of his children and hold his wife once again.

But they …were no more.

Daddy’s hands shook and all the pent up silent cries of anguish came out in great sobs and tears as he held 3 pictures of 3 hearts gently against his breast…Teddy, Lillian, his children and the only remaining picture of his wife as they stood bride and groom together looking forward to a bright future.

And so Daddy walked forward into a new life clutching the old life…crying out to God…WHY?…but only hearing the sound of silence. Daddy never understood to his dying day that it was satan who robbed him…not God.

All through the Old Testament God makes it clear that He knows everything about us:
• The number of hairs on our heads
• He knew us before we were conceived
• He chose us when He planned creation
• He determined the exact time of our birth
• The days of our lives are written in His book
• Every good gift comes from His hand
• He loves us with an everlasting love
• His thoughts about us are more than the sand of the seashore
• He rejoices over us by singing

Didn’t my Daddy know and understand this?
The answer is yes and no. It is Gods wish / desire that all should be saved. But desire is not will. God left that decision to our wills by giving us free will. Hidden in the prophecies of the Old Testament is this message from God to both Jew and Gentile.

I am your Father, and I love you even as I love my son, Jesus. For in Jesus, my love for you is revealed. He is the exact representation of my being. He came to demonstrate that I am for you not against you and to tell you that I am not counting your sins.

My Son died so that you and I could be reconciled. His death on the Cross-was the ultimate expression of my love for you. I gave up everything I loved that I might gain your love.

Receive my son as your savior and nothing will ever separate you from my love again…and then you can come home to me.

Love,
Your Abba / Daddy,

ALL MIGHTY GOD

SIMPLE THOUGHTS

SIMPLE  THOUGHTS

From MY Mind to YOURS

The Essence of God’s Word:

For those that have a personal relationship with Jesus, God is writing your personal history right now. Whatever life brings, God is weaving providentially His good handiwork into the fabric of your life.

The end of life brings a new beginning of life and the measure of your real wealth is what remains after losing your health, wealth, prosperity, possessions and power. This is the essence of God’s Word, live for tomorrow, not for today.

 

For YOU from My Seed Bag

This world is not our real home, but only a temporary place. It’s like a dream that will fade away in the light of Gods eternal day. Then we will awake in His presence and experience the REAL world as God originally intended it be.

In that great day when the real world which will last for eternity arrives, all the multitudes in all the nations of the world will awaken; including your husband, your wife, your children, your grandchildren, your parents, your family, your friends, your neighbors; everyone you have ever known will awaken. Either to a life with you in Heaven or a life separated from you in Hell.

You can do nothing about the past or the future. You only have now. If we are not sharing the gospel with others then… maybe, just maybe … we have not heard it ourselves.

 

The LAMB of GOD…
The MESSIAH of the World…
IS The 2nd Coming LION of the Tribe of Judah!

The simple fact is that Jesus STANDS on the Foundation of Old Testament Messianic Prophecies. When you study only the Birth, Death, Resurrection and Ascension of Jesus you only have half of the Greatest Story Ever Told. ALL BELIEVERS have Jewish Roots… because JESUS has JEWISH ROOTS.

Jesus Himself said:

Luke 24:44 “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.”

Luke 24:27 “And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.”

The Old and New Testaments are NOT two books. Together they are both Scripture that GOD BREATHED. The BIBLE is ONE BOOK that contains the Greatest Story Ever Told. Beware of the final chapter, for the 1ST Coming FALSE MESSIAH, the Anti-Christ comes first.

Will you be able to know the difference???

Let The SON-Shine IN !

OPEN The DOOR To YOUR HEART…

Let The SON-Shine IN !

Do you like Michael Card. I do. His music and especially the lyrics are wonderful. Michael has put Old and New Testament HIS-Story into Songs that PRAISE JESUS…

“One Faith, One Hope, One Baptism of All. One God, One Father of All. One Church, One Body, One Life in the Spirit, now given Freely to All. He Has gathered out of All Nations His Church to form One Faith. Faith that stands on the Rock Foundation of Gods Words, given through Apostles and Prophets.”

We do not believe in legends, myths or fairy tales, but in the Word of God proven by History, Science, Archeology and most of all Prophecies.

Because you can see the times and seasons coming quickly; Gods call to us to Evangelism is becoming more and more critical with each passing day.

Discipleship is NOT mass evangelism. The Church will not be built by men.

Jesus said…” I will build my Church and the Gates of Hell cannot stand against it.”

The model of discipleship in the Bible is One to One….not One to Many. So, what are you waiting for?

The Commander, The Lord of Hosts asks you to do your part. The battle is not physical, it is a battle for the Mind and Hearts of those you love.

Stand in the battle where the fighting for the lost is the hottest. Defend your beliefs, tell your God Story…He promises to give you the words.

Who are you pouring your life and faith into?

In Genesis 6 vs 3 (the Book of Beginnings), God said “My Spirit shall not forever dwell and strive with man, for he also is flesh…”

God said this because ultimately there will be no more physical (Flesh) people on this planet.

Everyone will get a new Spiritual Body fit to live for Eternity. God has made it abundantly clear in His Word to us that there are only two places to spend Eternity……with Him and without Him.

In Revelation 3:20 (the Last Book of the Bible), God said “Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to Him…”

The door to your heart has a handle only on the inside. It is you that must open the door to His knocking while He patiently waits outside.

Soon His patience will be gone.

Matthew 10:28…” Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

 

TO KNOW YESHUA

 

“That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death.”

GOD wants a Personal Relationship With YOU.
The God of the Bible wants to know you personally. And when you get to know Him personally He records your name in His Book. How awesome is that?

Why would the God of the Universe want anything to do with me, with you?

How can something compared to a speck of dust, a microbe in this cosmos be of any interest or significance to the God who created everything in the Universe?

Think with me for a minute. The Spirit of this Age (Satan) speaks to you from every False Religion, about a God who is un-approachable; un-knowable, one to whom we must reach up to, but who does not care about us as individuals.

That’s the God’s of Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, the Force of Scientology, and every other ism and ology that mankind worships falsely. They are all religions created by man…and made in man’s image.

Christianity is radically different, representing a 180 degree turn. Christianity is not a religion created by man. Christianity is about a personal relationship desired by the Creator of everything with His created Children, that’s right, He calls you His Child.

He is The God, The True God who reaches down to his children. He offers you a personal relationship with Him through His Son Jesus. When you come to know God through His Son you become His child and have the right to call Him Abba, a Jewish word meaning … Daddy.

The Bible, Gods literal Word to you, speaks about family, love, children, sacrifice, salvation and a created universe made especially for you to enjoy forever. You will live for eternity with a new pure heart, in a new city with a new purpose and be part of a new family.

The God’s of the other religions and philosophies, speak to the crowds—not the person; they recognize the forest but not the tree…my God speaks to individual people face to face.
He sees every face. He recognizes the fact that each face has an individual story. He knows your name. Your name is written on the palm of His hand (Isaiah 49:16). He promises never to forget you or leave you.

Max Lucado puts it best when he says “Your name on Gods hand. Your name on Gods lips. Maybe you’ve seen your name in some special places. On an award or diploma or walnut door.

Or maybe you’ve heard your name from some important people…a coach, a celebrity, a teacher. But to think that your name is on God’s hand and on God’s lips…could it be? Or perhaps you’ve never seen your name honored. And you cannot remember when you heard it spoken with kindness.
If so, it may be more difficult for you to believe that God knows your name… but He does. Written on His Hand. Spoken by His mouth, Whispered by His lips…Your Name. And not only the name you now have, but the New Name He will give you when you come home”. But you can ONLY Come Home IF YOU Believe in HIS SON JESUS.

GOD wants a relationship with you through His Son Jesus, so He will be able to speak to you face to face as you read the words HE Wrote for You in His Living Words recorded in the Old & New Testaments.

DO ANGEL’S STILL SING?

Some would have you believe that today the HOLY Angels are silent. I don’t agree. I know the songs of HOLY Angels are not silent because we are told that they REJOICE over one person who repents and comes to Salvation in Christ…the SON of the Living God.

Luke 15:6-8 …
“there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God…”

So maybe if you take seriously the call on your life as a Believer to share HIS Gospel to all you love that are on the wide road to hell; then you will be there to plant the last seed. You will be there to see the lights come alive in someone’s eyes as the HOLY Spirit ignites their heart, mind and Soul in faith in Christ.

When it happens listen closely and you might hear the Songs of HOLY Angels and feel the brush of their wings as they form a HOLY Hedge of Protection around the New Born Believer in Christ. As your loved one now is on the narrow path of their journey home to heaven with you.

In 28 years of witnessing God has only honored me twice where I put the last seed into the heart of a true seeker of God…then watched in awe as JOY took over them.

For the most part the songs of HOLY Angels can be heard echoing in the wind that flows throughout the Earth and the Heavens. Their Song lingers, slowly building momentum for the Coronation day yet to come in the near future. The Day when the KING of KINGS and the LORD of LORDS takes HIS rightful place on the throne of Heaven and Earth.

The Angels with us wait for this day. It will be a day of Jubilation, of Praise, and Worship, of Singing and Pure JOY. It will be THE DAY when all the voices of Heaven and Nature sing a New SONG to the King of Men, the King of ALL Creation, the King of Angels, the KING of ETERNITY.

You and I love music, we love to watch musicals, and we all love to sing. This ability to sing is a gift from God to you and I. It is our way of expressing JOY. Here on Earth we communicate with words. But I’ll bet your life, that in Heaven we will communicate with Nature and the Angels and each other and with God… in Song.

Then truly…truly… we will… “Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the Earth! “

And Heaven and Nature will SING. But the best news is that GOD will rejoice over you with singing…

Zephaniah 3:17
“The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing

WHY DO YOU CHOOSE TO LIVE IN THE DARK ?

 

 

 

From the Lips of GOD to your rabbi’s ears….2 Critical Scriptures to Understand !
After my father died, I turned to my Orthodox Rabbi Uncles to help me understand GOD. The journey with them lasted only a few short weeks. They could not answer my questions to save their own souls let alone mine.

The First question was in Genesis 1:1: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” The Hebrew Word used by GOD to describe HIMSELF is ELOHIM. This is a plural word meaning a multiple of one kind and the same essence. The TRUE GOD of Israel is ONE GOD in 3 Persons.

The FATHER / Abba – Daddy, The SON / JESUS –Y’SHUA and the HOLY SPIRIT – RUACH HaKodesh. My Orthodox Rabbi Uncles said I was wrong, that God was Singular. Since God wrote the entire Old Testament, He must have grammar issues….NOT MY GOD !

The Second question was in Proverbs 30:4:
“Who has ascended to heaven and come down? Who has gathered the wind in his fists? Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? WHAT IS HIS NAME ( ? ) and WHAT IS HIS SON’S NAME ( ? ) SURELY YOU KNOW ! ! !

Yes I do know, His Name is JESUS / Y’SHUA. My people remain blind, deaf and dumb, following white washed tombs into Eternal Darkness. This Old Testament Verse ended my false faith in Rabbinical Judaism, because my Rabbi Uncles could not answer the questions to Save their Souls; let alone mine. The latter ended my seeking Truth from Rabbi’s. The rest of my 3 year journey to faith was based ONLY ON THE WORD OF GOD in the Jewish Old Testament and the Jewish New Testament. ONE BOOK, HIS WORD’S, not the words of men !

EVEN WISDOM AND TRUTH ARE NOT ENOUGH !

Even Wisdom and Truth cannot take away the Pain and Suffering from this Fallen World. Yet Very Soon the ONE who is Eternal LOVE will come back to Earth and make ALL THINGS NEW AGAIN…. Including YOU; if you know YESHUA / JESUS as your SAVIOR and LORD !

The Magi followed his Star (The STAR OF DAVID) through the Desert Sky. When they arrived at Bethlehem, they asked “Where is HE who is KING of the JEWS. Later in JESUS LIFE Pontius Pilate asked him “Are you King of the Jews?”. Jesus answered it is as you say. Later, the RABBI’s (White Washed Tombs) cried out “Crucify HIM” and the Romans placed a CROWN of THORNES on HIS HEAD.

If you could go back in time and walk before the CROSSES lined up on the road outside the EASTERN GATE; you would not be able to recognize JESUS by the way He Looked. He was Born a JEW and DIED a JEW…he blended in among the other Jews, because He came to die as the GOD / MAN… as one of us!

The ONLY WAY you could recognize HIM was the small sign, that was also NAILED to HIS CROSS; that said… YESHUA, the KING OF THE JEWS.

The Crosses that stand in the Sanctuaries and Outside of Christian Churches throughout the world and time;  have NO SIGN NAILED to HIS CROSS. Which is why the Church that began with the JEWS now has forgotten its JEWISH ROOTS. Many Churches and Many Christians turn their eyes away from Anti-Semitism just like they do not fight against ABORTION. They will find out when they stand before the LORD, that there will be hell to pay.

The 2 Thieves on either side of Jesus at His Crucifixion represent the GREAT WHITE THRONE JUDGEMENT of ALL PEOPLE and the choices they made while living on earth.

Scripture says in Matthew 25 “and JESUS shall set the SHEEP on his right hand, but the GOATS on the left. Then shall the KING say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

Then JESUS will say to those on His LEFT, “Depart from Me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.

ALL will Bow Down and proclaim JESUS as LORD when they Stand Alone Before HIM.

YESHUA… the King of Eternity, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. The ONE whose BIRTH 2,000 years ago brought the DAWN of ETERNITY. Your Time to decide who you are is OVER, because TIME IS OVER !

DID YOU KNOW ?

E N D TIMES … BACK to YOUR  FUTURE

WHO ARE YOU…. REALLY  ? ? ?

Did you know…

that GOD has revealed the Past, the Present and the Future of the human race in HIS Bible?

Did you know…

that if you seriously read His Words you will be shocked to see that you are there, written on every page, because your DNA is filled with Sin, and God looks upon you as part of Fallen Humanity? Part of the Many that the Lord will Destroy at His 2nd Coming?

Did you know

that one of the Main Signposts in God’s Word of the coming end of this current world system is that “Morality will be turned upside down and that what is right will become wrong and what is wrong will become right?

Did you know

Your future… will greet you with either SHOCK or AWE.

Did you know

You need…insight into what really is going on in this world & what is coming soon.

Did you know

You need… to begin a journey into the Word of God, so you will be prepared for YOUR Future.

Did you know

You need… to find a Biblical World View of Events.

Did you know

Your Personal journey begins with your understanding the very first sentence in the Book of Genesis and will be complete when you read the last sentence in the Book of Revelation.

Genesis 1:1 “In the BEGINNING, GOD Created the Heavens and the Earth”.

Revelation 22:21 “and He who testifies to these things says, YES, I AM coming quickly. AMEN…Come LORD JESUS.

Without the ONE TRUE TRIUNE GOD Living In YOUR HEART… you will be LOST,

Living in the DARKNESS ALONE and you will NEVER…. FOREVER be FOUND !

Is it the Morning or the Mourning of the Church?

The Morning of the Church – It’s Beginning
When the church was born at Pentecost the new life of the church was exhilarating.
It was pure it was powerful it was productive. They were devoted to prayer and worship and the Apostles Doctrine.

And they gathered every day to engage in all of those things. The result was a powerful evangelistic impact in those early days. The church grew in just a few weeks from the 3,000 at Pentecost to an excess of 20,000 embracing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

The early chapters of the book of acts chronicle the transforming days of the dawning of the morning of the church. When the Son of God lite up the sky. The church was filled with truth, filled with faith, filled with Love, filled with generosity, filled with passion for the lost, filled with hope and all of that was influenced by the teaching, preaching and the writing of the Apostles of Jesus Christ and those associated with Him.

But even in the purity of those infant days. When the passion was high and the truth prevailed and people were exhilarated in their newfound life. Even in those early days the Holy Spirit gave the Apostles the privilege of looking into the not to distant future.

The Mourning of the Church – It’s Ending
And in looking into the future the Holy Spirit allowed the Apostles to see something frightening, something terrifying, something mystifying, and something unbelievable.

What did the Holy Spirit show them and what did they prophesy?
That Jesus would return, YES
That the world would one day be destroyed, YES
That the universe would melt in an atomic holocaust, YES
That sinner’s would finally be judged, YES
That believer’s would be raptured, YES
That believer’s would be taken to Glory, YES
That believer’s would be rewarded, YES
That there would be a Messianic Kingdom on earth with Christ as King, YES
That eventually there would be a New Heaven and New Earth, YES
That the Gospel would even be preached to the ends of the earth, YES
That the Church would grow and flourish, YES

The Apostles preached about that, wrote about that and reminded the believers that Jesus spoke about that. But beyond that, there was one un-believable, un-thinkable, un-imaginable, bizarre and strange reality that the Apostles predicted.

That the church, would defect from the Truth and become perverted in its understanding of Scripture. That the church; would abandon the TRUE Gospel and preach a False Gospel and Abandon Christ.
Above taken from Sermon Series on Book of Jude by Pastor Teacher John MacArthur –
www.gty.org

This can only happen to a church filled with False Teachers, Teaching False Doctrine to immature Christians who are Biblical Illiterates and cannot discern truth from error and worship a different Jesus.

To the False Teachers among us:

Jude 1:12-14
“These are the men who are hidden reefs in your love feasts when they feast with you without fear, caring for themselves; clouds without water, carried along by winds; autumn trees without fruit, doubly dead, uprooted; wild waves of the sea, casting up their own shame like foam; wandering stars, for whom the black darkness has been reserved forever.”

To the Immature Christians among us:

Jude 1:17-21
“But you, beloved, ought to remember the words that were spoken beforehand by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, that they were saying to you, “In the last time there will be mockers, following after their own ungodly lusts.” These are the ones who cause divisions, worldly-minded, devoid of the Spirit. But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.”

If you believe in JESUS, yours is a different destiny.
You will live in a place with no death, no pain, no mourning cry, where
God Himself will wipe the tears from every weeping eye.
