Hope

I see a lot of people who are discouraged and losing hope. As we look around us and see conditions in this world continuing to grow worse, it can create feelings of desperation and despair in us. Even though the Word of YHVH warns us of the things that are coming, it still comes as a shock to see those very things happening right before your eyes. Now IS the time to learn how to really trust in Him and lean on Him. It is very easy to fall into a feeling of helplessness and hopelessness. We cannot allow this world to wear us down. We are NOT a people without hope. The People of YHVH MUST be the ones to stand before all that is coming and continue to be light to the world. YHVH has called out a people and the sorting, sifting and winnowing has begun. Judgment begins with His People…will we stand or will we fall? My own life has been filled with turmoil the past few months, many changes and adjustments have come…I know it is unsettling and when we are taken out of our normal routine it throws our lives into chaos and confusion. Our faith and our trust is being called into question NOW and we are being tested NOW. No matter what we say, you NEVER know how you are going...

Guarding Shabbat

Every week people fail one of the most basic tests of their obedience to YHVH…observing the Shabbat the way that YHVH intended. Even those who profess to observe Shabbat bend the rules, get lax and start allowing other things to interfere with observing Shabbat. It is easy to do… It is a test for us, we are constantly challenged and it takes vigilance and commitment to remain obedient. YHVH knew that when He gave us the command to observe the Shabbat. The Shabbat is a good indicator of where we are in our walk. The way that we observe and guard Shabbat does show how seriously we take YHVH’s Commands and how diligent we are about guarding them. When He gives us six days to do everything we need to do, what excuse can we possibly have for not honoring and guarding the Shabbat? If we are not guarding the Shabbat, then how can we possibly think we are guarding the rest of His Commands? The Shabbat is the first Appointed Time listed in Leviticus 23…if we cannot even honor the first Appointed Time, do we think we can make up for that by honoring and observing the rest? What makes you think you will honor them too? Every seven days it is a test and a check to see if we will obey Him and guard His Commands....

Dream

How many people have given up on their dream? How many have allowed their dream to be stolen? How many have given up on themselves? Joseph’s brothers called him a dreamer. Joseph was destined for great things. What if he had given up? After he became enslaved, it appeared that he was never going to fulfill the dreams he had been given didn’t it? His situation grew even worse as he was falsely accused and sent to prison. How many of us have become enslaved, fallen into despair and given up hope? Grinding out an existence day to day because we are afraid to trust and to dream. Dreams can be realized…the People of YHVH are dreamers. We dream of His Kingdom being fulfilled and we dream of the world when Yeshua returns and sets everything in order the way it was meant to be. Have you given up? Have you just accepted where you are and the situation you are in? Have you convinced yourself that you are destined to serve Pharaoh your entire life? There is no hope in that…there is no expectation. Have you refused to step through doors that Abba has opened for you, because you have lost your capacity to dream and to hope? Our Abba empowers us, but He does NOT do it all for us. The Children of Israel refused to cross...

Seek YHVH

Take each day to deepen and strengthen your relationship with YHVH. We let other things crowd in and take over our lives. If all of those things are removed what is left? When you have nothing, what do you have to hold onto? We need to get back to simplicity and just BE the People of YHVH. There are too many distractions and too many things competing for our time. It is a trap… YHVH took Israel OUT into the wilderness…He had their full attention then. Is He trying to get your attention? What are you spending time with instead of Him? Can people even survive anymore without TV, smartphones, tablets and Internet? Does anyone even know how to just sit still with Him and be quiet? Maybe you don’t really know Him at all… Psalms 39:11-13 11 “When You chastise man for crookedness with reproofs, You consume what he loves, like a moth; All men are but a breath. Selah. 12 “Hear my prayer, O יהוה, And give ear to my cry; Do not be silent at my tears; For I am a stranger with You, A sojourner, as all my fathers were. 13 “Look away from me, That I might brighten up, Before I go away and am no more.” Always, seek the truth…rethink, relearn, return....

Follow Yeshua

We MUST be the People of YHVH first. We can’t twist and turn with every little breeze. We can’t bend and conform ourselves to the wishes of everyone else. Our first and most IMPORTANT responsibility is to PLEASE our Abba. He IS The One who is offering us life forever in His Kingdom! Are you ready and are you willing to take up your stake and follow Yeshua? Matthew 16:24-26 24 Then יהושע said to His taught ones, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his stake, and follow Me. 25 “For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it, and whoever loses his life for My sake shall find it. 26 “For what is a man profited if he gains all the world, and loses his own life? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his life? Yeshua was talking about more than physical life…He was also speaking about a way of life. How hard do we pursue and work at a way of life? Everyone has a standard they try to live at and maintain. Whose way of life are we living…His or our own? Which way of life will be preserved? Are we denying ourselves and seeking His Way of Life right now so that we truly have life, or are we seeking a way of...
