A Gem from Proverbs

Proverbs 26:27 Whoever digs a pit will fall into it, And he who rolls a stone will have it roll back on him.

When I read this, why did I get the image of Wile E. Coyote getting smashed by a stone he set up?

Was this verse the inspiration for these cartoons?

Thought Splatters – Whoosh!

Without love, the other 8 fruits of the Spirit will not work.

The reasons Yah does not give us clear and definite answers are to 1) hide His purpose from the enemy, and 2) encourage us seek Him for clarification (and train us to wait upon Him). Dreams, visions, words received spiritually, and supernatural events should cause us to seek the Father all the more.

Not only did Adam’s sin give the adversary and his minions dominion over Earth (Luke 4:5-8), but the corruption that followed became another tool the Lord uses to refine us.

Hebrews 7 states that Torah could not make us perfect. Well, of course not since its application is based on human efforts within a faulty framework. Humans are corrupt and egotistical. Torah was a starting point to transition the Israelites out of the slave mentality.

Keep testing and trying me, oh Father of All. The fire of living is hot, but through You, I will endure.

This is a war. Mankind is the battlefield and the prize. The target: your mind/heart.

I am obsessed with YHWH, but I still get distracted by the world and make mistakes.

I weary of those seeking man-made peace (peace= no conflict = comfortable = lukewarm) when they must stand their ground and fight alongside Our Savior and King.

Joshua, the son of Nun, seems like what Yahshua would be like if He were flawed like us.

Etch this into your brains: Your flesh is enemy number #1, not the adversary, the world, or other people. Train your souls to be contrary to the flesh, to choose the Spirit every chance you get. If you are not sure, ask the Father; watch and wait for the answer.

Make sure, on a daily basis, that you are not being used as a tool for the adversary.

It is not about what you get out of a place of worship, but what you contribute to a body of believers.

The Bible is a puzzle loaded with clues. If you apply those clues, it will come to life in your life.

Why did they wave two loaves of bread during the wave offering? The two parts of the Ten Commandments (first 4 concerning Yah, the last 6 concerning men’s treatment of one another); the Jew and Gentile coming before Him. –Rabbi Jason Sobel

The leavened bread of the peace or freewill offering – our words to Him and others, although not perfect as His Word (the Unleavened Bread, the Bread of Life) because of our plane of existence.

The unleavened Showbread (the Bread of the Presence) was to always be in the Holy Place—The Father is always wanting to feed us His Word. Amen.

Prayer Trigger, Prayer Target

2 Corinthians 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds…

Ephesians 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual wickedness in the heavenlies.

Nearly everything in Scripture can be used as a weapon against the adversary and his minions. With the Spirit’s guidance and our surrender, concepts (ideas), principles (our behavioral instructions from the Lord), and prayers can be derived from the Bible to help us overcome the flesh and the enemy.

Respecting His Order (creation) and Will (directions) are paramount; therefore, obedience and repentance are the first steps on the base level of spiritual warfare. Arthur Burk did a video of a concept which became popular during the tail end of the Charismatic Revival:

Here are the verses explaining the concept:

Matthew 5
44But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

Luke 6
27But to those of you who will listen, I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.

Romans 12:14 Bless those who persecute you. Bless and do not curse.

1 Peter 3:9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.

Proverbs 25 (Romans 12:20)
21If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat,
and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.
22For in so doing, you will heap burning coals on his head,
and the LORD will reward you.

Luke 18
2In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor respected men. 3And there was a widow in that town who kept appealing to him, “Give me justice against my adversary.”

4For a while he refused, but later he said to himself, “Though I neither fear God nor respect men, 5yet because this widow keeps pestering me, I will give her justice. Then she will stop wearing me out with her perpetual requests.”

6And the Lord said, “Listen to the words of the unjust judge. 7Will not God bring about justice for His elect who cry out to Him day and night? Will He continue to defer their help? 8I tell you; He will promptly carry out justice on their behalf. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?”

2 Kings 13
14When Elisha had fallen sick with the illness from which he would die, Jehoash king of Israel came down to him and wept over him, saying, “My father, my father, the chariots and horsemen of Israel!”

15Elisha told him, “Take a bow and some arrows.”

So Jehoash took a bow and some arrows.

16Then Elisha said to the king of Israel, “Put your hand on the bow.”

So the king put his hand on the bow, and Elisha put his hands on the king’s hands.

17“Open the east window,” said Elisha.

So he opened it and Elisha said, “Shoot!” So he shot.

And Elisha declared:
“This is the LORD’s arrow of victory,
the arrow of victory over Aram,
for you shall strike the Arameans in Aphek
until you have put an end to them.”

18Then Elisha said, “Take the arrows!”

So he took them, and Elisha said to the king of Israel, “Strike the ground!”

So he struck the ground three times and stopped.

19But the man of God was angry with him and said, “You should have struck the ground five or six times. Then you would have struck down Aram until you had put an end to it. But now you will strike down Aram only three times.”

1. Give the Lord praise and honor.
2. Repent.
3. Bless as many people as you can, as often as you can, especially those who have wronged you or are living in sin.
4. Give Him honor and amen.
5. Do this as often as you can. You can slow down once the attacks stop.

The results:
1. The attacks may increase a bit, then level off and decrease.
2. You are preparing each person to receive God’s Word.
3. You are giving back what He gives to you: life, breath, blessings, the honor to exist, etc.
4. A great way to invigorate your prayer life. Maybe that was what Yah wanted in the first place.

Stop Slacking and a New Resource

Last month, I had noticed something. I hadn’t received fresh revelation in a while.

The answer came quick, impressed upon my person, “Why receive if you do not share what you have?”

Ouch… He has a point. I have no excuse but complacency. Posting in this blog is a part of my repentance. Sharing revelation, insight, knowledge, and declaring fulfilled prayers are others. No matter what, the Father, Our King, wants His words to flow out of our persons and into the world. Too much is happening; we must stay on guard and active in His will. May He and the Word He placed in us be ready to share at any time. Amen.

I found another ministry confirming enough of what Father Yah taught me Himself over the years to keep my attention:

Super Quick Bible Study: Choices, Not “Free Will”

I hate the term “free will.” It implies humans are completely separate from Our Creator (all existence comes from Him, is still tied to Him, and will return to Him, all praise to His Holy Name) and sounds passive, as if accepting Christ and being good little boys and girls are all we must do. If that were the case, the Bible would be a fraction of its size. A more precise, active phrase – “If we love the Father, Our King, we have choices to make.” Even after answering His call, our souls make decisions every single day concerning our walk with Him. Does the soul choose the spirit or the beast? Remember, Eve (the soul of man), who was still considered Adam (mankind), chose the beast (the flesh of man) over the words of life (the Spirit).

Genesis 3:6 When the woman saw that the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eyes, and that it was desirable for obtaining wisdom, she took the fruit and ate it. She also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate it.

1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.

Every choice is an action, whether in thought or deed.

Love is a choice.
Trust is a choice.
Service is a choice.
Rebellion is a choice.
Seeking Him is a choice.
Your relationship with Him is a choice.
Recognizing His supernatural work is a choice.
Embracing His judgment (correction) is a choice.

Joshua 24:15 And if it seems evil to you to serve YHWH, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve YHWH.”

1 Kings 18:21 Then Elijah approached all the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If YHWH is Elohim follow Him. But if Baal is God, follow him.” But the people did not answer a word.

Micah 4:5 Though each of the peoples may walk in the name of his god, yet we will walk in the name of YHWH our Elohim forever and ever.

Thought Splatters – Ploosh!

Have you blessed those–known and unknown–who have blessed you, who have said prayers over you?

May the Father bless those who always have Him in their mouths, who talk as though He is always present and a part of their lives.

Do believers understand because Yah is holy (separate from us unto His own self), we are an irritant? This adds yet another level for the importance of Yahshua’s blood, shed for our sakes.

The Lord has me praying for people who don’t care about me. Anybody else saddled with this burden?

Influence + distraction = deception. Who or what is either influencing or distracting you?

What if the sacrifices were to not only cover sin, but the stench caused by sin, transgressions, and iniquities? That would explain the “pleasing aroma” part. I guess burning flesh smells better than a million sinners?

The most basic thing one can do to fight the adversary: do what Yah told you to do. After that habit is established, then you can rebuke and cast out demons. Yahshua set the example, by the way.

For those who doubt the divinity of Yahshua, think carefully: Who else but YHWH, in the flesh, could be pure and potent enough to produce blood that covers all sin – past, present, and future?

Even if you feel your prayers for others are ineffective, keep interceding, seeing it as an irritant to the adversary and his minions.

Fight negativity by blessing others, whether they are righteous or not, and be sincere.

We need to act as though we are being tested and tried everyday, all day. This is practicing the fear of the Lord.

Meekness, gentleness, mercy, grace = power under control

Torah was to make the Israelites conscientious of their actions as they transitioned from a slavery/poverty mindset to one dedicated to Yah’s order, will, purpose, and desire over time. Whether or not we see it, Torah did have a lasting effect over us all and helped mankind to grow.

YHWH, the breath of lives. Whenever we pray, sing, praise, speak about Him, and declare thanksgiving and His victory, we are giving back a portion of the breath, the life He has given us.

He took out His wrath on His Son – He satisfied His need to destroy the corrupted Earth/universe upon Himself. This is why we must humble ourselves.

The Bible In 50 Days – Notes

These are the notes from a Bible study where you read from Genesis to Revelation straight through on a 50-day schedule.


– water to blood reminds me of Yahshua turning water into wine

– locusts blown away into the Red Sea reminds me of Yahshua casting the demons into pigs and the pigs running off a cliff into the sea

– How does the Father mark us in comparison to nonbelievers?

– Father gave the Israelites favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so the Egyptians allowed the Israelites to plunder them. Proverbs 13:22 A good person leaves an inheritance [provision, righteousness] to his grandchildren, and the wealth of a sinner is stored up for the righteous.

– Our Lord is a consuming fire.


– Did David do the sin offering of the leader?

– You shall not eat blood. The life is in the blood. The blood is for the atonement (covering) of sin. This is what Christ did for us.

– You shall not uncover the nakedness of a sister to rival your wife.

– Do not be a stumbling block to the blind. What were they doing to the blind?

– I just realized that Leviticus repeat itself.

– Sabbath is really important. Yahshua will straighten that day out.

– Land, not walled cities, were important to Yah for inheritances.

– The land vomited out the heathens who went against Yah’s will, so the land was free to become a possession of the Israelites.

– The rules concerning slavery apply spiritually to nonbelievers whom the Lord uses in favor or as punishment for His children. Nebuchadnezzar My servant.

– set loose wild beasts which will rob you of your children (2 Kings 2:23-24, 2 Chronicles 36:16)


– standard – banner or flag – war/defensive formation around the Tabernacle.

– anyone not of the family of Levi could be killed trying to the Levites’ jobs.

– The Levites were given to the Aaronic priesthood to serve the priest as the priests served the Lord.

– Instead of the firstborn males being designated to the Lord (a kingdom of priests), the Lord took all of Levi instead. Was it because of their zeal to serve the Lord?

– the law of jealousy kept an idiot husband from outright killing her, made him look like a fool if nothing bad happened to her after that ritual.

– Phineas defiled himself in his zeal for the Lord; the men of war who spared the Midianite women and male children were ordered to kill them and wash everything and stay outside the camp 7 days.


– The sun, moon, and stars are given to the nations to worship?

– They were to whitewash large stones and write the laws upon them.

– I am thankful we are under a better covenant.

– Wormwood? Like in Revelation? A massive bitterness in the spirit of mankind?

– Hidden (secret) things belong to the Lord, but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

– the words are in your heart and your mouth to do them.

– Is He not your father?

– Rejoice oh Gentiles with His people Deuteronomy 32:43, Romans 15:10

– Joshua got the gift of wisdom because Moses laid his hands on him as the Lord instructed.

– You will reap what you did not plant, live in houses you did not build, drink from wells you did not dig (Proverbs 13:22).


– Ruben, Gad, and the half-tribe of Manessah got their rest (land) for their families and would help their brethren get theirs before they could enjoy it.

– Rehab’s action reminds me of Tamar’s behavior towards Judah.


– Gideon screwed up with accursed objects after the victory and created another enemy for Israel (Abimelech – the title of the Philistine king).

– Olive, fig, grapevine, bramble

– Samson’s father did not trust his wife’s tale. I can see why Jesus revealed Himself to women first. He was the Angel of the Lord “I am.”

– God used Samson’s sins to judge the Philistines.

– Deborah served as a judge longer than most.

– Samson knew where his strength came from.

– Samson broke Torah by burning wheat fields.

– Phineas was high priest during the siege of Benjamites.

I Samuel

– God appointed judges; Samuel was not supposed to appoint his sons, who were wicked like Eli’s sons.

– Samuel either did not know, forgot, or ignored the Torah portion about the future king (Genesis 17:6, Genesis 17:16, Genesis 35:11, Deuteronomy 17:14-20).

– Saul had the Spirit of the Lord upon him to inspire a righteous anger to save Gibeon.

– Ichabod’s nephew, Ahijah, was wearing an ephod, meaning he served as a priest.

– Saul saying “…the Lord YOUR God,” sounds like an insult.

– David started playing for and found favor with Saul before David slew Goliath. David became his armor bearer.

– Was Jesse an Ephraimite or an Ephrathite? Ephrath (that is, Bethlehem) – the English translation can go either way.

– David’s brothers were jealous of his favor with the king.

– 1 Samuel 19, God used Saul’s anointing against him to distract him and his servant so David could escape.

– I loved the way Saul called Johnathan a traitor.

– Saul was insane with moments of sanity.

– Nabal was Caleb’s descendant.

– Did Abigail curse her husband Nabal?

– Johnathan was still under an oath and had to die by Saul’s declaration.

– The medium at Endor slaughtered a fattened calf and kneaded, baked Saul unleavened bread – that is something symbolic here. May the Lord reveal it by His timing.

– Two times David spoke to the Lord through the ephod, the priestly apron.

– David’s kindness to the ill Egyptian slave helped save their families.

– David forced the men to return the tired ones’ belongings since they guarded the area.

II Samuel

– Bragging about something you did not do can get you killed.

– The Lord commanded judges over the house of Israel.

– The Lord will chasten the future king with the “rod” of foreigners (war), but keep the bloodline going, unlike Saul’s.

– David’s throne will be established forever.

– David’s physical conquests remind me of the Great Commission of Yahshua, and when He becomes King of the Earth in Revelation.

– David’s behavior towards women symbolizes believers abusing the Lord’s redemption and His grace over their lives.

– The first baby boy from Bathsheba paid the price for David’s sin.

– The woman Joab used to change David’s mind concerning Absolom declared David’s wisdom came from the Angel of the Lord. So did Mephibosheth.

– Absolom had his servants set Joab’s field on fire (against Torah) to get his attention concerning David.

– the priests took the Ark of the Covenant when David was on the run; David told them and the priests who are prophets to go back.

– David was inspired by Yah to number the people, but 1 Chronicles 21:1 says that it was Satan. The answer is in Job and 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12.

I Kings

– Solomon fulfilled the prophecy against the house of Eli serving before the Lord.

– Only the two tablets of stone were in the Ark when they moved it to the new Temple.

– Solomon’s prayer of the Temple’s dedication, when he said “…then hear in heaven…” and asked something from the Lord, reminds me of Jesus saying, “Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

– Solomon, ”…for there is no one who does not sin.” “…that He will never leave us and nor forsake us…”

– King Hiram did not like the cities in Galilee Solomon had given him.

– Jereboam got what God said and still disobeyed.

– The man of God who came from Judah also disobeyed and was killed by a lion, but the donkey survived. Woe to those who become prophets? That story always puzzled me.

– The children and grandchildren of Northern Israel’s kings paid the price of their sins.

– Omri bought a hill called Samaria, named after the previous owner, Shemer, for 2 talents.

– God said, “I have commanded a widow to feed you [Elijah].” Guided her?

– When the widow’s son had died, she declared, “Why have you come, o man of God? Are you here to bring my sin to remembrance?” A prophet was not seen as a good sign, but judgment or condemnation. Woe to those who wish to be a prophet. I want to be a prophet to do an end-around on man-made restriction upon me in these denominations.

– Even Elijah accused God of killing her son. Jesus turned that around by saying, “This is for the glory of the Lord.” The widow, upon receiving her living child again, said, I know by this you are truely a man of God and every word you say is true.”

– The Angel of the Lord said, “Eat and drink, for the journey is too great for you.” Father Yah knows our condition. We can ask him how we are to take care of ourselves.

-The second time someone got killed by a lion for not obeying the word of God. The prophets were so weird back then, lots of dark humor.

– Elijah’s plan to turn Northern Israel back to God failed.

– Ahab complained about the prophet Micaiah prophesying against him, like it was the prophet’s fault bad things have happened to Ahab and not the correction of the Lord.

– A prophet smacked Micaiah saying, “When has the word of the Lord gone from me to you?”

– Dogs licked up Ahab’s blood while it was being washed off his chariot. Why mention the harlots bathing nearby?

II Kings

– Elijah dressed like John the Baptist.

– Elijah called fire from heaven 3X.

– The captain of the third fifty humbled himself for his sake and the lives of his 50 men, “Let my life and the lives of these men be precious in your sight.”

– The sons of the prophets bowed down and said, “The spirit of Elijah rests upon Elisha.”

– Northern Israel, Southern Judah, and Edom came together to fight Moab.

– Jehoshaphat always inquired of the Lord through a prophet, although he did it late one time.

– Elisha said, “Bring me a musician. When then musician played, Elisha prophesied. The Lord was having a ball operating through his prophets, LOL! I want to experience some of that!

– Moab said, “The water is blood. Surely the kings have struck one another.” Was that common back then?

– The king of Moab offered his firstborn son as a sacrifice on the wall. It turned back the 3 kings’ armies. How much more did Christ’s sacrifice do?

– Yah can close off information to His prophets for a purpose, to make Elisha revive her son.

– I did a write-up on the dirt Namaam took. Namaan’s asking for a pardon for false worship reminds me of Daniel and his friends in the school of the Babylonian wise men.

– Elisha, through the Lord, spared the Syrian army from Northern Israel’s wrath, had the army fed, and sent back home. Bless your enemies.

– The Father confused the Syrian army and they ran, leaving behind their camp intact. A bunch of lepers found it. The dude who insulted Elisha was trampled. LOL!

– God set it up to help the woman with the resurrected son again.

– Hezekiah pointed out how the defeated kingdoms threw away their idols because they were not real.

– Sennacherib ran to Ninevah, his sons killed him, one reigned over Assyria, was this the king Jonah spoke to? Did the Assyrians know about what the Lord did for Hezekiah and Southern Judah? Is this why they repented at Jonah’s word from the Lord?

– Hezekiah, first king of Judah after Israel’s destruction during his reign.

– Hezekiah’s extended life spawned Manasseh.

– The sun going backwards as a sign to Hezekiah.

– Joash and Josiah are similar.

– Nehusta, Jehoiachin’s mother, her name reminds me of the bronze snake Moses had made and Hezekiah destroyed because the people worship it (Nehushtan).

I Chronicles

– Edom had a king before Israel.

– More genealogies of kings and priests, naming mighty men

– Shimri, although not the firstborn, but his father made him first.

– Satan urged David to number the people

– David saw the angel of death with a sword; once David obeyed and set up the altar at a threshing floor, the angel put his sword away.

II Chronicles

– Jereboam rejected the official priests of the Lord and appointed his own for the high place, the demons, and the calves.

– Asa imprisoned the seer who told Asa he would have war because he relied on a foreigner king and not God.

– Jehoshaphat and Ahab in thrones on a threshing floor?

– I wonder, how do these stories of the kings who were righteous apply to us today? Are we missing something?

– Jehoram killed his six brothers, who were better than him, according to the prophet.

– Jehoram married to Ahab’s daughter, Athaliah (the only female king, 6 years), and his mother was also a daughter of Ahab?

– Edom revolted against Southern Judah’s rule–prophecy fulfilled.

– Jehoram was not buried with the kings (his fathers).

– Jehosheba, the daughter of King Jehoram and wife of the priest Jehoiada, was Ahaziah’s sister. The priests did marry women from Judah’s line and vise versa.

– Jehoiada lived 130 years; Joash went bad afterwards.

– Jehoiada’s son, a priest named Zechariah, prophesied against Joash; Joash had him killed.

– Joash not buried with his fathers.

– Uzziah was buried in the field of the kings because he was a leper.

– Ahaz was a piece of work and was buried in the field not the tomb.

– The war was also about whose god was better.

– Hezekiah ordered the priests to sanctify themselves and cleanse the Temple, 8 days to clean, 16th day, the repairs were complete.

– The Levites had to help skin the sacrifices because there were too few priests and other priests weren’t purified yet. The Levites were more diligent in purifying themselves than the priests.

– Hezekiah prayed for the unclean people who ate the Passover lamb; God heard him and healed them. Healed them from what?

– Travelers from Northern Israel participated.

– God paid attention when a king humbled himself for the Lord’s sake.

– I get tired of “Is it not written in such-and-such book?”

– the land is a she; she enjoyed her shabbot of 70 years.


– Both believers and unbelievers can be provoked by God depending on the person’s mentality. Cyrus had the idea of the conquered people to keep their cultures to help control them better.

– Ezra and Nehemiah returned to Jerusalem with Zarubbabel in the first wave.

– Artaxerxes sent a letter response which caused the stopping of the rebuilding of the Temple.

– Ezra’s bloodline back to Zadok and Aaron.

– Artaxerxes now supported the rebuilding of the Temple, thanks to Cyrus’ letter someone found and to avoid curses. Was this after Esther’s revelation of Haman’s plot against the Jews?

– Ezra called a fast to humble themselves to seek after the Lord for protection against any enemies for their trip to Jerusalem with children, using possessions.

– Ezra’s prayer of regret and hope.

– The men put away the pagan wives and children.


– Nehemiah’s prayer of confession and remembrance of Yah’s covenant.

– Nehemiah recognized God’s work in his life and testified about it to others.

– When Ezra opened the book of the Lord, all the people stood up – the Jews still do that today.

– They hadn’t celebrated Succoth since the days of Joshua.

– Ezra’s sermon of generational sin and repentance.

– Nehemiah’s prayer of frustration


– Vashti is an Indian female name.

– Our Father, the King of All, has a vicious sense of humor with the situation of Haman being forced to honor Mordecai.

– Some became Jews for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.


– The first friend saw or felt a spirit, it said, “Can a man be more righteous than God? More pure than his Maker? He charges His angels with error.”

– Though He slay me, I will trust Him.

– Let me know my transgression and sin. Job 13:23

– Job’s friends are irritating. “Miserable comforters are you.”

– I wish my words were recorded and inscribed in a book.

– I know my redeemer lives.

– Job’s friends are idealistic in their view of God and mankind, but Job sees the reality about the wicked.

– If I have made gold my hope…my confidence…this also would be an iniquity deserving of judgment, for I would have denied God who is above.

– Who has given wisdom to the mind, understanding to the heart?


– “Be angry and sin not.” Also Ephesians 4:26 and James 1:20 – for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

– “Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity.” Matthew 7:23, Luke 13:27

– His eyelids test the souls of men.

– “To see if there are any who understand, who seek God. …there is none who does good, no not one.” Romans 3:10

– “Into Your hands, I commit my spirit.” Luke 23:46

– “But the meek shall inherit the earth…” Matthew 5:5

– He will be our guide, even to death.

– He will redeem me from the power of the grave. Selah.

– To the tune of “Do Not Destroy.” LOL!

– “For their heart was not steadfast toward Him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant…” Matthew 15:8, Mark 7:6 from Isaiah 29:13

– “Man is like grass, cut down and withers.” 1 Peter 1:24, James 1:10, Isaiah 40:6-7, Isaiah 37:27, Isaiah 51:12.

– Psalm 91 sounds like Yahshua and us into the Kingdom. The adversary quoted it, Matthew 4

– “Though 1000 may fall at your left hand, and 10,000 at your right…” reminds me of the song the women sang about Saul and David.

– “You will tread the serpent underfoot.” Genesis 3

– A people, yet to be created, will worship/serve the Lord.

– Psalm 104, a brief reference to the waters of the flood, the waters not destroying the world again.

– I hate the word manifold in some translations. Multifaceted would be more accurate.

– Psalm 105, ”Make known His deeds among the people.” Testimony!

– What Phineas did was accounted to him for righteousness, the shalom (wholeness, completeness, balance) of God.

– They kept finding psalm of David, 101, 103, 108-110, 122, 124, 131, 133, 138-145.

– No more cursing, thank the Father.

– Your people shall be volunteers in the day of Your power.

– A good understanding have all those who do His commandments.


Proverbs 13:11 “Wealth gained hastily will dwindle, but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.” and Proverbs 20:21 “An inheritance gained hastily in the beginning will not be blessed in the end.” Both remind me of the parable of the prodigal son.

Proverbs 25:6-7 “Do not exalt yourself in the presence of the king, And do not stand in the place of the great; For it is better that he say to you, “Come up here,” Than that you should be put lower in the presence of the prince, Whom your eyes have seen.” is similar to Luke 14:7-11.

– Paul quoted, in Romans 12:20, Proverbs 25:21-22 “If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat; And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink; For so you will heap coals of fire on his head, And the LORD will reward you.” Also done in 2 Kings 6:22, 2 Chronicles 28:15.

A Behavioral Warning

For those in the habit of turning their noses up at others, heartbreak is coming. You will be knocked low, driven to prayer once again. This must happen so His Will can increase its flow through you.

Examine yourselves.
Humble yourselves.
Ask the Lord for correction.

Psalm 101:5 Whoever slanders his neighbor in secret, I will put to silence; the one with haughty eyes and a proud heart, I will not endure.

Proverbs 29:23 A man’s pride will bring him low, but a humble spirit will obtain honor.

2 Corinthians 13:5 (NKJV) Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? —unless indeed you are disqualified.

1 Corinthians 11:28 Each one must examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup.

Lamentations 3:40 Let us examine and test our ways and turn back to YHWH.

Psalm 51:17 The sacrifices of Elohim are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O Elohim, you will not despise.

Matthew 23:12 and Luke 14:11 For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.

1 Peter 5:5 Young men, in the same way, submit yourselves to your elders. And all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because “Elohim opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”

James 4:6 But He gives us more grace. This is why it says: “Elohim opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”

James 4:10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will exalt you.

Jeremiah 10:24 Correct me, O YHWH, but in justice; not in your anger, lest you bring me to nothing.

Thought Splatters – Tap-tap

Those operating from the flesh struggle to see the works of the Spirit.
Those operating from the soul see His natural order but want miracles.
Those operating from the spirit see His supernatural work every day.

The more one studies Biblical Hebrew, the more one will see Scripture in other languages as paraphrases, rather than translations.

Only Yah can turn tares into wheat.

Rejoice in the Lord = I enjoy serving the Lord. Announce, sing or shout your enjoyment of the Lord’s Order, Will, Purpose, and Desire being fulfill around us, in us, through us, through others, through things, through places. Declare your joy even within the midst of sorrow. May we all learn to enjoy serving Him.

Obedience should become a habit over time. Through the Spirit’s assistance and encouragement, the desire to fulfill His Will should be the result.

I can see why some who believe in the pretribulation rapture are also cessationists. To survive that time, it will take those gifts plus miracles on the level of the Exodus and the book of Acts.

Always remember, the adversary’s main job is to distract you from fulfilling Yah’s Will and Purpose for Everyone’s benefit.

When was the last time you have praised the Father whilst in either pain or trouble?

Is there is a link between the supernatural gifts of the Spirit and persecution? Do the gifts increase during times of trouble?

Worship is not about what you get out of it, but what you put into it for the Lord’s and others’ sake.

The tithing of time – With 24 hours in a day, a tenth of that is 2.4 hours. Shouldn’t that be the minimum we devote to prayer and worship each day?

To avoid cliquish behavior, talk to a wide variety of people in any public setting. The Father made a variety of people, and everyone has a story to tell for those willing to listen.

The more one reads, listens to, quotes and studies Scripture, the more Scripture turns into a mental filter, weeding out the false and accepting His knowledge via the Holy Spirit.

The Lord’s greatest power: mercy in love. Why else would He allow us, an irritant to His Holiness, to exist?

Please, please, please, do not put restrictions on anything Yah can do in your life. Everything He has done in Scripture is possible today. Everything in Scripture He has done He can still do through you and others. Your belief and behavior dictates how He treats you.

What is He doing or allowing in your life to drive you to prayer? That means you need to increase both praise and prayer each day.
