ON THE WINGS OF ANGELS

When you learn to look at life through Biblical Eyes, filtering everything through the Word of God…you will have developed a Biblical Worldview. And, if you look with the eyes of your heart you will see God everywhere.

You know the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and that God entrusted to Adam and Eve the job of caretakers. You know they failed their mission and the whole of creation is now fallen as the animals and the earth groan together bearing the burdens of Mankind’s sins.

So nature is not what it was intended to be when God first created it. However, there is a simplicity and extraordinary beauty to be found in every part of nature, whether animal, insect or plant…even in this fallen world.

We came to the house of butterflies at the Zoo. Oh, so many colors and patterns to their wings, so delicate and beautiful and whimsical. We stood in amazement as they flew around us. They were everywhere. One came up to my face a number of times. I gently blew air in its direction as it came close.

The wind from my mouth served as waves of air that gently pushed it back.

I was reminded how God has promised to each of His Children continued protection by HOLY Angels, if they believed in His Son. The butterflies were all around us, just as the Holy Angels are all around us ministering to each of us, doing the bidding of God. The Holy Angels help us from a realm not seen during our journey through this physical life.

Then when we die our Angel will carry the real us, (Our Spirit) to be with the Lord in Heaven forever. It will be a special ride, a once in a lifetime ride in the arms of a Holy Angel with wings that flutter like the butterflies.

Do You Know What Time It Is ?

 

Time invaded Eternity in the Garden of Eden. Time brought with it shadows and darkness. But today if you understand Time, you know it soon will go out of existence as the Dawn of Eternity continues to grow and the World and Universe will again be bathed in SON–SHINE.

The Nation of Israel is God’s prophetic time clock in relation to the END of TIME and the 2nd COMING of the MESSIAH YESHUA / JESUS.

Jesus said we would not know the day or the hour, but we would know the signs of the times. It is time to begin looking upward to heaven…….because our redemption……The Lord Yeshua……Jesus the Messiah……Jesus the Christ…….The Lamb Of God……The SON of GOD is coming back very soon; FOR HIS OWN…. And take us home.

It’s not the end of the world like we often hear, but a New World and a New Beginning for ALL who Believe in and Love The Coming of the Lord Jesus !

We wait for JESUS and look forward to the New Jerusalem, the City of God coming down from Heaven where we will enjoy the Feast of Salvation with our Messiah someday soon. Then the 2 Dimensions of Heaven and Earth will Unite in Eternity and 2 will become 1 Forever and Ever AMEN

Galatians 4:4-7
But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption…

JESUS is the ONLY ONE who lived and died and now is alive again …the SON of GOD, the Christ of HIS True Church and the Messiah of Israel.

Never before had a king died only to succeed himself to the throne. But Christ did:

Never before had a man been crucified and buried only to emerge bodily three days later. But Christ did:

Never before had a man endured such human hatred in order to demonstrate such divine love. But Christ did:

No other:event in human history could be so aptly described as “old, yet forever new.”

No other: single piece of good news has brought more comfort, more encouragement, and more peace to more people than the ringing declaration…

“HE is RISEN!”

The closing words in the Book of Revelation, the
Greatest Story Ever Told, is the promise from the
ONE who rose from the dead….to All Mankind…

“SURLY, I AM COMING QUICKLY”
JESUS

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

 

The marines represent the pride of the military of the United States of America. They are always the first to go into combat and the last to leave.

I saw a billboard sign on the road to work. It had a picture of a beautiful saber held by a Marine. It is something to behold. The Marine saber represents the might of the United States of America.

The words over this saber on the billboard represent the creed of every American. “Earned, Never Given”. This is the way of mankind.

JESUS uses the same 3 words but in a different sequence.
“Given, NEVER Earned” This is the way of our Triune God.

I say the following all the time to anyone that has ears to hear…
I am not a Jew, or a Catholic, or an Episcopalian or a Lutheran. I am not a Methodist, or a Presbyterian or a Baptist. I am not a Charismatic nor am I a Pentecostal. For that matter I am not Yellow, Brown, Red, Black or White.
I am none of the above.

What I am, is a Child of I AM and a Follower of HIS SON JESUS.

Listen for the  a TRUMPET and Stop worrying about everything…JESUS is coming to take you to your new home very soon! Live in HIS SHALOM; because JESUS HOLDS YOUR KEYS !

BEFORE TIME EXISTED, I KNEW YOU

I knew you even before you were conceived. Jeremiah 1:4-5 I chose you when I planned creation. Ephesians 1:11-12 You were not a mistake, for all your days are written in my book. Psalm 139:15-16

HIS CALL:

The voices, can you hear them? There were three distinct and separate voices talking to each other about a plan. I was there just like a fly on the wall listening. It was the strangest thing. I was there among three but somehow within only the ONE. I had no feeling of physicality or of being. Did you hear, they used the term Birth Pangs…what did they mean?

Somehow I knew it meant something specific yet it was more than that because I had the feeling that they were referring to me. OH MY GOD, HE knows I am listening to their conversation. His eyes turn inward towards me. His look is soft and loving as He gazes upon me. I am confused, I don’t understand where I am, but He knows. He calls my name…and then begins to explain the plan to me.

Ernie, you live for now in my mind, you are part of my being. I have given you the gift of conscience. You live for now within me. The day will come in the future when I will live within you. You can hear me but not see me with your eyes. Soon you will be born into a body of flesh. You will have many gifts within you as you live out the days of your life in the flesh.

You will have five senses that will feed information to you regarding your surroundings and the world I have created for you. You will have eyes to see, ears to hear, hands to touch, taste buds to taste and a nose to smell with. These five senses will come together to help you on your quest to find the uniqueness that is you.

Yet there is another sense that you have within you. This sense will be greater than all the rest. But it will be buried deep within you and will not be quickened immediately. It will remain within you dormant for a while. This sense will bring you back to me when it comes alive within your heart of hearts. Then and only then will you understand who you truly are, your purpose for living and you will begin to worship Me…The ONE True God who created you and all that there is.

As you walk the Earth that I have created, your five senses will help you see Me in the Creation around you. Many others that have already had their new sense ignited will come to you on my behalf. They will help you to understand My plan and the part you are to play in it.

The words were now fading rapidly into the shadowy mist in my mind as I began to move out from my mother’s womb into the light filled with shadows. My fists were clenched in rage as my lungs filled with air and I began to cry. I would forget all that I had heard from HIS lips. I would forget the voice of quiet thunder and those soft eyes that looked upon me with such love. But hidden deep within the very heart of my being this new sense within me would gently echo the words HE planted deep within me. “I have already prepared you for your re-birth in MY Spirit.”

HIS PROMISE:

I could write volumes about this but would rather make it concise and to the point, paraphrasing what God has said to each of us. The entire Bible represents thousands of God Moments to me. “The day will come in the future when I will live within YOU.”

If you belong to HIM, then this will become the GREATEST GOD MOMENT of your life.

“I will never leave you nor forsake you because you belong to me. You are being prepared as a love gift for MY SON, who loves you as much as I do.” This is comforting reassurance of my Salvation, my Inheritance, my Eternal Family to come, my Citizenship in Heaven and HIS never ending, forever love of me.

Revelation 22:20
He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. You can feel the growing darkness of the last days all around you. But don’t lose heart, watch the Eastern Sky and you will see the Dawn of Eternity coming soon!

TEARS of The FATHER

Good Friday, something to think about.

Tears of the FATHER at the CROSS of HIS SON.

Excerpt from one of my Easter Church Messages called Tears of Two Fathers.

“My child God said to me. I wanted to tell you personally what the Crucifixion of My Son meant to me. You have children and grandchildren and I know you love them. I know that you would do all you could to protect them from harm and that you would gladly take upon yourself their death. I know this because you were created in my image with the ability to Love.

I know that if men took your child and beat him with whips that ripped both flesh and bone from his back…that you could not be restrained.

I know if men forced your child to carry a beam of heavy wood down the street as people swore at him, mocking him, and spitting on him… that you could not be restrained.

I know if men forced your child to lie down on that cross and then drove nails through his feet and hands to hold him there…that you could not be restrained.

Could you Ernie? The Lord asked softly…no Lord I said quietly.

I stood and watched as they did all those things to my Son. I stood there not for His sake but for YOURS, because He took that punishment not for His sake but for YOURS….I honored you through His Pain. But Ernie, when Jesus…MY SON cried out …MY GOD…MY GOD…WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?

That was more than I could bear, so I turned away and cried uncontrollably. My Son had wept over Jerusalem; and now I wept over my Son. Yes, I could not look upon the Worlds Sins that MY Son was bearing, but even more than that, if I had looked at HIM at the moment HE said those words…I knew in my heart …THAT I COULD NOT BE RESTRAINED ! ! !

Ernie…I wanted you and those that say they love my Son, to know that even for the Joy set before both HIM and I…the Cross was the most difficult thing either of us have gone through.”

Have YOU ever given any thought to the tears Jesus will wipe from your eyes? Why am I going to be crying before Him? Maybe because as hard as I tried while here on Earth encased in this broken vessel of clay, the motives of my heart have always been tinged with pride.

Maybe because in my own way I too have Mocked God by trying to blend into the sewage around me like a Chameleon instead of standing alone for HIM? Maybe because I haven’t taken His command to share the Gospel serious enough and He will show me the hundreds of times I could have made a difference in someone’s life by planting a seed for the Holy Spirit to water.

I will stand before Him looking into His Eyes filled with Holy fire and use words to give an account of the life He gave me to live out before HIM. He will then show me the times He had given me words to speak in the power of the HOLY SPIRIT, but I chose to remain silent.

Your LIFE & My LIFE are ALL ABOUT JESUS…Not Us!
IN HIM I found me.

READ ISAIAH 53:1-11; (3- He was despised and rejected by men) (5- But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities) (10- Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him).

THE BEST IS YET TO COME…..

 

Deuteronomy 31:6….

Be strong and courageous; do not be afraid or terrified of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Revelation 21:3….

And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He (JESUS) will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them.

AMEN and AMEN…..COME QUICKLY LORD JESUS !

Every Knee SHALL BOW

Here I stand, suspended on nothing, naked before the Bema, before the God who is Holy, Holy, Holy. The God of Love, yes; but also the God of Justice. God, who required that my life meet not a standard of excellence but of perfection.

A life not one of us can even come close to living out before Him. Meeting His standard is required for entrance into His Perfect Heaven. Not our standard.

Just a millisecond ago I was in my body. Now my body has gone the way of all flesh, back to the dust it was made of. I am what is left. The essence of who I always was and will now continue to be; a soul and spirit.

The words and phrases of Scripture that have filled my mind on earth now swirl around me. “Absent from the body, present with the Lord”. A moment ago I lived in the physical world. My eyes watched as darkness overtook the world I knew.

Then Blazing light enveloped my being as I was drawn upward by a power not my own. My spiritual eyes now accustomed to this light found myself standing before the ONE who called me into existence from eternity past. The ONE who gave me life as He did you. Life yes, but with a purpose to fulfill. His purpose, not mine or yours.

The word Awe, or for that matter any other word devised by mankind cannot come close to describe the ONE I now stand before. I stand before Him bathed in the light of His love. I feel love surround and envelope me for He is Love. He created me. I have never been loved like this, I do not want to go back to my body or to my life on earth.

No words have been exchanged at this point. Only a gaze between us that seemed timeless. Then, His eyes changed as He looked at me. They became eyes of fire. This light that pierced me, surrounded me, enveloped me became uncomfortable.

I found myself falling to my knees before Him and then further down until I lay prostrate before Him. Face down, with my arms outstretched, suspended in space…forming the Cross.

A new feeling of emotion swept over me. I felt alone as I felt the penetrating gaze of His eyes of fire.

The Book of Life was opened before me, His book, His Autobiography. Scriptures poured forth from it swirling around me. As my life unfolded before me, verses came forth and applied themselves to every scene of my life. The verses I had memorized came forth to join the ones that poured forth from His Word.

Then they attached themselves to scenes from my life. They condemned me, for my life did not uphold His commands. We are called to live for HIM, to Love HIM, to Honor HIM. The only way we prove that we are HIS is by obedience to His Word by applying it to our lives.

He had given me life. I was to live that life for HIM as His image bearer, for each of us are made in the image of God. Now it was Scripture, the very words of God that were judging my every act, my every thought…the motives of my heart.

My life was now being reviewed. Ernie Pahlek, my words, scenes of life, thoughts of my heart and mind towards loved ones, my circumstances, my choices, my actions and more continued to play out before me…then everything stopped.

Up until now no words had come out of my mouth. I only watched this shared vision of my life before God. Then I heard His voice speak. His words lifted me upright before HIM. It was now my turn to speak on my behalf.

Have you ever taken the time to think about what will come out of your mouth when you stand alone before the God who is HOLY, HOLY, HOLY? This was not the Babe of Christmas, nor was it Emanuel (God With Us)…but the Risen Lord, wrapped in Light, with fire in His eyes. I had claimed Him in life as my Savior and Lord.

The words now formed in my mind. Every accomplishment, every deed I did in my life began with the letter I.
Did I truly do it all for HIM? Or, was it for me and the praise, honor and glory others lavished on me.

Was I really humble? I claimed to know Jesus as Lord with my mouth. I tried to prove it with my actions and deeds. But God judges only the Heart and its Motives.

Nothing I have ever done entitles me to enter His Heaven. Comparing myself to others or to people in the Bible will not justify me. Isaiah said we are all un- righteous before a HOLY GOD! Only 3 words come forth from my mouth.Lord, Forgive Me.

The thief on the Cross and I have much in common. I tried to live my entire life for Christ. He lived only the last few minutes of His life for Christ. Neither of us are worthy, each of us is equally guilty of Sin before God.

It is only His Grace to each of us that allows mercy to flow to us so we can be forgiven and then enter His Perfect Heaven.

It is all a gift from God. Through Faith alone by Grace alone do we hear Him whisper our name and then Turn, Repent, and Accept HIM as Lord. Strength comes back into my body as I rise up to a knelling position. I feel His hands around me lifting me up before Him.

He says, “My sheep hear my voice. I knew you before the foundations of the world were made. The Good work I began in you; I have now completed. You are one of mine and I love you with an everlasting love.

Come; let me show you your new home.”Oh…My God…My Lord…thank you. He takes me to the place He prepared for me. There is a door before me. I turn back and look to Him. I am overwhelmed with emotion and I burst in tears and great sobs. These were tears of great sorrow, and of pain.

I looked behind HIM…faces were everywhere before my eyes. My children, my grand children, my parents, my relatives, my neighbors, my dear friends….all whom I loved in my life. All there before my eyes in one moment of time.

I reached into the air behind Him trying to touch them. Sobbing and choking back the tears I cried with a loud voice to HIM. But what about them? What will happen to them?
He spoke softly to me. This ONE who spoke the Universe into existence.

But what about them? What will happen to them?
He spoke softly to me. This ONE who spoke the Universe into existence. “Ernie, I stood at the door of your heart for 38 years waiting to be invited in. Then I whispered your name and you heard my voice and you opened the door to your heart and let me in.

The decision to open the door to your heart was yours not mine. The same decision is theirs as well. I will continue to knock on the door of each one of their hearts for as long as they live in time. I will wait patiently as I did for you, to be wanted by them.

They too as you have, in a yet future moment; will stand before me. They will have to answer my question…”Who do you say that I am?” They two will be held accountable to my Standard of Perfection.

Then the same hands that formed me in my mothers womb, gently wiped the tears away from my eyes. He opened the door before me and said, “Welcome to my home, to your future…for you, the past is gone forever.” “As for them…they have the Law and the Prophets (Luke 16 verse 30 -31).

The Messiah Jesus walked out of the pages of the Prophets and into our world. The world HE MADE. And for a while the Heavens loss became mankind’s gain, and God proved that his mercies are new every day.

At the end of my days, when HIS Throne fills my view,
I will sing of HIS Mercies anew, and I will STAND in HIS Presence Forever and ever.

“May the Lord God Almighty, the Ancient of Days, the Lord God of Israel shower you with His Grace and Mercy and Peace…. as you raise your voice with the Apostle Peter’s response to the question Jesus asked him on the Mount of Transfiguration…..“Who do you say that I AM?”
You, are the Messiah, the Son of the Living God”.

Will you be able to stand before HIM when He comes the 2nd time?

HE IS RISEN, HE IS RISEN INDEED ! ! !

WHO KILLED CHRIST ?

I am a Messianic (Jewish) believer in Jesus. That means I believe Jesus is the Messiah that the Jewish people are looking for. Jesus is also the Christ of Christianity. Jesus is one and the same, the SON of GOD. I have been asked the question who killed Christ by both Jewish and non-Jewish friends, since I became a believer in 1985. The following is my answer to the question, “Who killed Jesus, The Christ”.

The “ANSWER” to this question can simply be put into one sentence. But understanding the question and the far reaching implications that the “ANSWER” has attached to it requires a much greater “ANSWER” than one simple sentence can express.

Who killed Christ? I did, you did, every human being that has walked this earth did, the Romans did and the Jews did. But, THE PERSON who bears sole responsibility for the death of The Christ is GOD HIS FATHER.

The God who created the universe, the earth, mankind and all that is upon the earth, also created Time and History. The mystery of history is that it is really HIS- Story, the story of Jesus/Yeshua the Messiah, the Christ. History is the story of how and why Gods only Son chose to enter space and time to die on a Cross for the Sin’s of everyone. So that when we die, you and I could have a way to go home to be with God in Heaven.

In Genesis Chapter 5 there is a listing of the names of the Descendants of Adam. It is a genealogy of 10 names from Adam through Noah.

Hidden within Genesis 5 is the oldest prophecy that God established regarding His eternal plan of redemption for mankind, which is the Gospel, The Cross of Jesus.

Every Hebrew letter or number has a meaning. When we interpret the Hebrew meaning of each of these 10 names, they form the most fascinating sentence in the entire Bible.

Adam……………………………man (is)
Seth……………………………..appointed
Enosh……………………………mortal
kenan……………………………sorrow (but)
Mahalalel……………………….The Blessed God
Jared…………………………….shall come down
Enoch……………………………teaching
Methusaleh……………………..His Death Shall Bring
Lamech…………………………. the despairing
Noah……………………………..comfort and rest.

Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow (but) The Blessed God shall come down teaching, His Death Shall Bring the despairing comfort and rest.

How awesome is God, that within the Hebrew names of a genealogy in the Old Testament, HE would hide the New Testament Plan of Redemption. (Salvation, bought for all through the death on the Cross of Gods Son, Jesus / Yeshua the Messiah of Israel!).

Yes, every person that ever lived contributed to Christ’s death because of their Sin.
Yet it was God His Fathers plan to put HIS own Son Jesus the Messiah, to death on the Cross. Listen again, as God speaks through the Prophet Isaiah about the crushing of the Messiah. In Isaiah 53 vs. 10 “but the Lord was pleased to crush Him, putting Him to grief as a guilt offering”.

Jesus, volunteered for the assignment in Heaven. We read in the book of Hebrews 12 vs 2 that Jesus willingly laid HIS life down, “ Who for the JOY set before HIM endured the Cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

Jesus knew in eternity past that HE would go to the Cross and that HE would be Resurrected. But HE also knew the Joy of a future eternity filled with His redeemed people, bought by HIS Blood because of HIS willing sacrifice on that Cross for you.

Yes, I killed Christ, you killed Christ, the Romans Killed Christ, the Jews killed Christ………all of Mankind Killed Christ. Fixing the blame isn’t important! What is important is to accept Jesus’s death on the Cross for your Sin’s. Placing your hand in HIS so HE can welcome you to your new home in heaven when you die.

Take HIS hand; it is GODS HAND reaching out to save you from yourself and your 2nd death, YOUR ETERNAL DEATH that Satan wants you to experience Forever.

STAND ALONE FOR YESHUA

ONE JEW….STANDING ALONE FOR YESHUA / JESUS !

GOD has proclaimed you are a TRUE Jew Only if you have a BORN AGAIN Circumcised heart.

I am, a COMPLETED JEW with a Circumcised BORN AGAIN HEART, that pumps ROYAL BLOOD. I am a child of ABBA / DADDY and a follower of YESHUA, the SON of OUR TRIUNE GOD.

Deuteronomy 30:6 (from the Jewish Old Testament) “Moreover the LORD your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, so that you may live.

Romans 2:29 (from the JEWISH NEW TESTAMENT) “A man is not a Jew because he is one outwardly, nor is circumcision only outward and physical. No, a man is a Jew because he is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code. Such a man’s praise does not come from men, but from God.”

Proverbs 30:6 “Who has ascended into heaven and descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has wrapped the waters in His garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? WHAT IS HIS NAME OR HIS SON’S NAME? SURELY YOU KNOW !

Zechariah 12:10 “I (YESHUA) will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me (YESHUA) whom they (Nation of Israel) have pierced; and they will mourn for Him (YESHUA), as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him (YESHUA) like the bitter weeping over a firstborn.”

Zechariah 13:8 “It will come about in all the land,” Declares the LORD, “That two parts in it will be cut off and perish; But the third (BORN AGAIN—COMPLETED JEWS) will be left in it. “And I will bring the third part through the fire, Refine them as silver is refined, And test them as gold is tested. They will call on My name, And I will answer them; I will say, ‘They are My people,’ And they will say, ‘The LORD is my God.”

The ONLY PLACE you will find the LOVE of YESHUA Is At The FOOT Of HIS CROSS. YESHUA Comes Back the 2nd Time ONLY IN JUDGMENT !

HE IS RISEN ! HIS TOMB IS EMPTY ! YESHUA / JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS FOR YOU !

HEARING GOD

 

God’s voice flows throughout the Old Testament and New Testament.

His Voice spoke:
• the Universe and Time into existence.
• to Moses from a burning bush.
• at Mt. Sinai to the nation of Israel out of Clouds, Fire and Thunder.
• to Ezekiel out of a gentle wind.
• saying Be Still to a raging storm and the sea stood still.
• to Lazarus, a dead man who came back to life after 4 days of death.
• and cried and wept and sobbed over Jerusalem.
• whispering from His Cross… “Father forgive them.”
• ROARING from His Cross… “It IS FINISHED”.

If you follow the creation account in the book of Genesis you will notice that God’s Voice spoke into existence everything by saying “Let there be …

Yet when He came to man, God said…Let US make man in OUR image; MAKING THE TRINITY CLEAR TO ALL WHO SEEK HIS VOICE THROUGHOUT HISTORY.

Today GOD’s SON Whispers your name. He waits patiently to be wanted. His heart yearns to beat as one with yours. If you shut out the world around you; and BE STILL….YOU WILL Hear His Voice.

IN JESUS…
The Messiah of ALL Nations…
I found me.
