Obey

When most people go off track, it is not because they intentionally set out to disobey YHVH. A lot of people become victims of listening to unlearned and unqualified ‘teachers’ who have no depth of understanding themselves. To disobey is to transgress the commands of YHVH and it does not matter how it comes about, it is still transgression. Many people seem to think that YHVH has changed and softened, and given his people license to change and reinterpret His Word for themselves. That is NOT what our Messiah came here for! It is that word obey that really disturbs people isn’t it? People want ALL of the promises and ALL of the blessings that YHVH offers, but they just can’t get past that obedience thing. They expect to live the way they want, change His Word to fit what they want to do and even redefine what His Word means. The transformation of His People IS a process and He leads us on a path for a reason. We CANNOT take The Kingdom by force, it is His Way and it has ALWAYS been His Way. Do you want to be one of those found at the wedding supper who has no wedding garment to wear? Our journey begins with obedience and we move forward from there…His Way. When we become His, our way no longer matters. Matthew...

Syncretism

Syncretism…BEWARE People of YHVH! Syncretism is weaving its way deceitfully into the doctrines and beliefs of many. Syncretism seeks to combine, corrupt and mix differing beliefs and practices into one. Israel fell victim to syncretism over and over, even though YHVH warned them specifically about doing that very thing…He KNEW they were going to fall into that practice. That is why His people are to guard…GUARD His Commands. Even though Dani’el and his friends were taken to Babylon captive, they still guarded the commands of YHVH. Even under the penalty and the threat of death, they remained true to YHVH! Syncretism is so much a part of so many belief systems, that most people do not understand what it means to TRULY set themselves apart. Many do not even believe that it is possible to set themselves apart in this world, yet that is EXACTLY what our Abba calls us to do. Syncretism is alive and well today…it continues to penetrate and weave its way into the thoughts, beliefs and practices of many. That syncretized system of beliefs is EXACTLY what we have been warned to watch out for! Matthew 13:45-50 45 “Again, the reign of the heavens is like a man, a merchant, seeking fine pearls, 46 who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it. 47...

Surrender

Surrender…what does that really look like? What does it really mean? Complete, total and utter surrender…a giving up of who WE are, what WE have, what WE want. We can deceive ourselves very easily and make what WE want so big, overpowering and controlling in our lives that we shut out what YHVH is trying to show us. Overcoming ourselves is the greatest challenge we face and it is easy for us to head down a wrong road and become convinced of what we are doing, when we believe that our cause is righteous…OUR cause. Are you truly listening to Abba, or are you hearing what YOU want to hear? How much are you willing to lay down and sacrifice, to surrender yourself to YHVH? Even in our sacrifice, we MUST be in complete surrender to Him. We must allow Him to show us what needs to be removed, what needs to be laid down and what needs to be given up. We can’t really be within His will, if we have not sacrificed ALL to Him. The things YOU want, must be laid on the altar and surrendered. Do you want His will to be done in your life, or do you want your will to be done and to say that it is His? To surrender completely, fully and without reservation is to empty yourself…and then allow...

Love And The Word

Love and the Word of YHVH are closely intertwined. To guard His Word with our whole hearts, we have to love and desire His Word. How is love instilled in His People? Could it be obedience to His Commands? It becomes a part of us because we walk in His Way. We learn to practice love His Way, the way He has defined it. You cannot practice love without obedience and you cannot practice obedience without love. They cannot be separated… Psalms 119:32-38 32 I run the way of Your commands, For You enlarge my heart. 33 Teach me, O יהוה, the way of Your laws, And I observe it to the end. 34 Make me understand, that I might observe Your Torah, And guard it with all my heart. 35 Make me walk in the path of Your commands, For I have delighted in it. 36 Incline my heart to Your witnesses, And not to own gain. 37 Turn away my eyes from looking at falsehood, And revive me in Your way. 38 Establish Your word to Your servant, Which leads to the fear of You. It is through Him that we learn love, it is by His Word that we practice love. Many have their own definition of love and fail to see how it is integrated all throughout the Word of YHVH. Man has corrupted YHVH’s...

The Prophet’s Call

The calling of the prophet is to WARN! The voice of the prophet shows a people and a nation their SIN! The prophet tells of what is to come if a people do not HUMBLE themselves and REPENT (Teshuvah) of their transgression against the Word of YHVH! The prophet calls for a return to obedience and conformance to the commands of YHVH. The people hated the prophets then and they hate them now. No one wants to hear that they MUST change and that they are actually accountable for their transgressions. Sometimes we NEED to be shocked into action! Mosheh spoke some harsh words to Israel…they needed it. They were being brought into alignment with the word of YHVH. The prophet guards and watches over the commands of YHVH. The prophet goes where he is sent and he speaks what he is given to speak. There is a boldness in the prophet…not a boldness born of pride and arrogance, but a boldness that comes from the urgency of the message he is to deliver. The prophet knows there is no time for foolish things. To most, the message of the prophet could hardly be called loving…yet it IS a loving and merciful Elohim that calls people back to Him and calls them to return to His Commands. The people of YHVH MUST have an ear to discern the message...
