If given the choice which would you choose?When you look back into the history of the civilizations of the world you will see a path of blood. It’s always been there meandering throughout the globes topography. It’s a gentle flowing … Continue reading
IT IS FINISHED !
ARE YOU A WARRIOR FOR CHRIST ?
The eyes of the Lord go to and fro throughout the earth looking for any who would believe. His eyes of fire search each heart that proclaims faith and then calls them to war. His fire can consume or His fire can bring warmth and light to your path as you follow in HIS footsteps.
It is more important today than ever to know your enemy. Put your time and efforts into studying the false doctrines of the enemy closest to you so you can draw the right weapon from Gods arsenal to help bring dead hearts to life.
Don’t sit comfortably by the campfire being warmed by others like you. You who know HIM, you who claim to know HIS voice, you who have eyes to see and ears to hear, you heard HIS CALL … COME…FOLLOW ME!
He did not call you to follow Him to heaven…that will come later. HE Calls you today to follow HIM to WAR… for the hearts and minds of those you love.
You are called to go forth into the darkness for you have seen a great light and you have been empowered to serve no matter who you are, no matter where you live…. no matter what the circumstances.
This battle is everywhere that you find people who know not the RISEN LORD. So go Boldly where you have never gone before.
Have you ever stopped to think how much God loves the Gentiles? God loves Gentiles so much that He Blinded His own Chosen people, whom He said are the apple of His eye, to the Truth about Jesus their Messiah.
God did this so Gentiles could receive the Gospel and become part of Gods eternal family. Jesus is the Jews Messiah, but He is also the hope of the Gentiles.
In Isaiah’s vision…God said “Who will go for us? The Holy Angels were silent, but Isaiah said…”Lord Send Me”.
That is the same commitment before the Lord of Hosts you and I must have in these end times we live in. We as believers need to go forth and say… Lord Send ME!
Just remember to reach into HIS fire and light your candle before you go…and then shine it into the darkness.
END TIMES THOUGHTS
Satan is already bringing signs and wonders that are False.
They come through the APOSTATE CHURCH and their FALSE TEACHERS. They are the First Sign of the 2nd Coming of JESUS in JUDGMENT…NOT LOVE.
As these Signs and Wonders continue to grow they will become bolder even to the point where believers may be misled. Yet that won’t happen because the Holy Spirit in every true believer will be able to discern the Truth from the Lie.
UNTIL ….GOD finally turns HIS Back to Those NON-BELIEVERS Who are NOT HIS and Gives Them Up to the FINAL DELUSION that will take them to the PLACE HE DOES NOT RESIDE, the Place Created for the DEVIL and HIS FALLEN ANGELS…..FOREVER.
The Apostle Paul said in 2 Corinthians 13:5 to Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Can’t you see for yourselves that Jesus Christ is in you — unless you actually fail the test?…this becomes more important every day for everyone who professes with their mouth that they know the Lord.
My words are for all who are looking more and more to Signs and Wonders in these Final Days Before the Lords Coming. Each of us must STOP WALKING in and out of the SHADOWS. We are called ONLY to FOLLOW JESUS and Follow HIS FOOTPRINTS that are in the LIGHT.
Only HIS FOOTPRINTS will Lead us HOME.
In the end we judge NO ONE in regard to their Salvation.
But JESUS WILL… you do not want to hear HIS WORDS in Matthew 7:21-23 spoken to you; “I NEVER KNEW YOU”.
Non-Believers were BORN to BELIEVE !
In my search for God through the years I have found that Mysteries are meant to be revealed and that Religions are complicated lies meant to Deceive. But The TRUTH…Gods TRUTH…is simple and clear.
Religion is the Voice of Man and cannot be defended from History, Science or Archeology because Religion is weaved from layers of complicated lies that will not stand. They are based on the shadows of legends, myths and fairy tales. I do not believe in the gods that man has revealed through multiple religions.
GODS Truth is about a relationship that can be defended from History, Science, and Archeology. But that’s not what excites me!
I believe in the God who revealed Himself to His Creation through His Word. The Word’s given through Inspiration to His Ancient Prophets and Apostles. The Words of the Old & New Testaments. The God that said man is but dust speaks to us today from ancient texts that He has supernaturally preserved through time. His Words of Truth have never changed because He has never changed…He Is the Ancient of Days, the Eternal and True God. He revealed Himself to man, man did not reveal Him!
God knows the beginning from the end and because He is THE ONLY GOD, He Supernaturally proves who He is through Prophecy / Pre-Written History; just as you would expect the real God to do…that’s what excites me!!!
God says to you …Seek Me and I will reveal Myself, My Son and My plan for your redemption to cure your disease of Sin. The same choice I gave through Moses to the Nation of Israel in the desert I now give to you. Choose Eternal Death or Choose Eternal Life and Believe in ME and come Home!
Since 1985 I have grown up in the Church with beautiful Hymns and worship songs that touch me deeply. But hearing Messianic Jewish music and their lyrics with such rich meanings touches me deeper than anything else. I am a Messianic Jew. My life is rooted in Christ for He holds me together with Himself on HIS Cross. The Cross-of wood whose roots go deep into the Judean desert into which it was planted 2,000 years ago.
If God had chosen music to be played in the desert when John the Baptist said “BEHOLD…the Lamb of God who comes to take away the sins of the world.” It would have been Messianic Praise Music and would have lifted John’s Soul into the presence of God as it does mine.
Take the time to read the Testimony of John the Baptist (A Jew) in
John 1: 19-34. John was the prophesied forerunner of the Messiah. John was an obedient voice crying in the wilderness and baptizing in the wilderness because God told him that one day he would recognize the Messiah in the Jordan River in the waters of Baptism.
Later John would be in prison awaiting his death by beheading. His faith had wavered not understanding that He too would have to carry His own CROSS-to follow Christ. He sent word to Jesus and asked, “Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?”
Jesus replied, “Go back and report to John what you hear and see: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor. Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me.” (Matthew 11:2-6)
Those words of Christ were good enough for John to face his death in peace. The same words representing the credentials of the Messiah of Israel should also be good enough for you to both recognize HIM and then choose to live your life for HIM.
Of late I have had the distinct dis-pleasure of meeting fellow Christians who stated that ONLY their denomination understood and followed the correct interpretation of the Bible.
They made it clear to me what they believed and that they were right and the rest of the denominations were wrong.
They stated clearly what parts of the Bible they accepted.
I thought it was; ALL Gods Word or not Gods Word at all !
When I am asked about which denomination I belong to I say…”I am not a Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Catholic, Lutheran, Pentecostal, Charismatic, Eastern Orthodox or Messianic Jew.
I follow the original. The One True Church made up of Born again Christians and Born Again Jews. My worship and my allegiance is to the One Founder of the One True Faith…Messiah Yeshua, Jesus The Christ, the Son of God.
You will find me daily before HIS CROSS on my face in the Judean dirt before His Nail Pierced Feet.
HIS Church began at the Cross and has remained the same for 2,000 years…Salvation by Faith Alone, by Grace Alone, In Christ Alone!
We do not add bodies to his church…HE ALONE builds HIS CHURCH.
Together each of us belongs to an Ancient Faith. Together we are HIS called out ones…His Church…His Ecclesia…His Temple made up of Living Stones.
I hope the walls that separate us will come down some time in the future. I hope we will focus on sound doctrine. I hope every Church that claims Christ will preach not only about His Love, but also about His Coming with Fire in His Eyes; in Judgment, which is the real reason to FEAR THE LORD.
I hope we stop arguing about who among us is right. So once and for all we can act like family…for that is what we are…Brothers and Sisters in Christ…CALLED by HIM to LOVE One Another.
Focusing on our differences and defending our points of view especially when we cannot support them by the Word of God… is wrong!
The ONLY right is what should unify us…HIS CROSS! The great commission is not to go out to the world and argue. We are called to go out to the world with the Gospel of Salvation in Christ alone.
The Apostle Paul set the pattern for ALL Believers 2,000 years ago…Preach His Crucifixion, His CROSS and His Resurrection and the hope we have as believers established solidly in the fact that He is Coming Again Soon, But ONLY for HIS Ecclesia!
Their faces I formed so that mine they would see.
Ears to listen for the Word I would speak.
Eyes to see, minds to understand.
All they required I made with my Hand.
The Law and the Prophets for centuries foretold.
The birth of a baby begotten of old.
In words UN-Encoded, with language so plain.
That even the simplest could call on my name.
Fathom mysteries confounding the wise.
See the Messiah through a child’s eyes.

Thoughts of a Messianic Jew. When Jesus Roared forth from HIS CROSS “It is FINISHED”. The same GOD who took HIS finger and wrote the 10 Commandments into Stone; took HIS finger and tore open the Veil covering the Holy of Holies in the Temple in Jerusalem.
I have recently been researching the tearing of the veil in the Holy of Holies looking for extra-biblical evidence of the event in History. We think of the tearing of the veil as God Himself opening the way to Himself to all people through His Son Jesus. The body of Christ was torn and opened just as the veil was. The door is now open.
However, I keep trying to look at the events of Scripture through Jewish eyes because the events happened in Jewish context. I found something that I find interesting. It opens yet another way to look at the event of the tearing of the veil when Jesus died on the Cross. “and Jesus uttered a loud cry and breathed His last. And the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom” (Mark 15:37-38) “.
“It is as if God, The Father of Jesus acts as any devoted Jewish father would have done standing by His own Son’s deathbed. The customary Jewish mourning gesture of a father was to tear his outer garment.”
The more I read Scripture, the more the Holy Spirit helps me to find deeper Truth. No one could have written our Bible but God. Weaving a tapestry, a Love story so layered, interwoven and deep that it rewards us with Gold in the most unforeseen places if we but look.
Paul (Rabbi Sha’ul) said it best in Romans 11:33 “O the depth of the riches and the wisdom and knowledge of God! How inscrutable are His judgements! How unsearchable are His ways! For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the Glory forever!
In Jerusalem the Archeologists found a graveyard where the first century Messianic Believers (Christian’s) were buried. Almost one hundred gravestones were unearthed from the Judean soil.
Each had the same word engraved in the stone. No name, no birth date or date of death, no quip or slogan left behind. Only one word that covered each of them for Eternity was engraved on their gravestones. AMEMTAS. A Greek word that means BLAMELESS.
If you believe in Jesus, then your name is already Engraved on the very Palm of Gods Hand.
Heavenly Father, Holy Spirit,
What we know not…Teach US
What we have not…Grant US
What we are not…Make US
ABBA, I ask this of you, in the Name Above All Names…JESUS.
Lord JESUS… SAVE US from ourselves so that we will
be BLAMELESS when we stand before you at the door of Heaven.
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.”
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 !
