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.

Choose Your Fire

This will be a stretch to the saints’ faith but suffer me a moment. I believe that when we choose to put ourselves in a difficult situation, especially for Yah’s glory, we can better bear them and those in the future we do not choose. If we do this enough, with an affirming mindset towards His provisions and our love towards others, when trials do come, we can handle them much easier than one who simply bumbles along in life, hoping in Yah without consistently following His Son’s example.

The best example is Yahshua Himself, the One Who we must imitate. He had put Himself around sinners, which was contrary to the Jews’ interpretation of Scripture. He had touched and had been touched by unclean people. He had taught in the synagogues and anywhere in public the correct view of His Father’s Will, earning the err of the ruling Sanhedrin. He had fulfilled He and His Father’s part of the friendship pact They had made with Abraham (Genesis 15) by His sacrifice on the cross.

Always remember, he had no need to create us or any of this, yet He endures our corruption to bring us back unto Himself. This reason alone is why we must be humble before Him. Even if we choose the wrong struggle, trust that He will order our steps to the right one if we stay meek and willing to be corrected. David’s trials before his reign are great examples of this.

Witness while rejection makes your heart bleed.
Work against your desires to fulfill His Will.
Sacrifice entertainment for Scripture.
Serve without appreciation.
Praise Him through pain.
Patient yet restless.

Exodus 35:29 So all the men and women of the Israelites whose hearts prompted them brought a freewill offering to YHWH for all the work that YHWH through Moses had commanded them to do.

1 Chronicles 29:9 Then the people rejoiced because they had given willingly, for with a whole heart they had offered freely to YHWH. David the king also rejoiced greatly.

1 Chronicles 29:17 [David prayed,] “I know also, my Elohim, that You test the heart and have pleasure in uprightness. As for me, in the uprightness of my heart I have willingly offered all these things; and now with joy I have seen Your people, who are present here to offer willingly to You.”

Psalm 110:3
Your people will volunteer freely on the day of Your power.
In holy splendor, from the womb of the dawn,
Your youth are to You as the dew.

Psalm 51:12
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,
And sustain me with a willing spirit.

2 Corinthians 9:7 Each one should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not out of regret or compulsion. For God loves a cheerful giver.

Matthew 19:30, Matthew 20:16, Mark 10:31, Luke 13:30
[Yahshua declared,] “So, the last will be first, and the first will be last.”

Super Quick Bible Study: Through Troubles, Garner Strength

Matthew 5:11-12 Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven; for in the same way, they persecuted the prophets before you.

Romans 5:3-5 Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

2 Corinthians 8:1-5 Now, brothers and sisters, we make known to you the grace of God which has been given in the churches of Macedonia, that in a great ordeal of affliction their abundance of joy and their deep poverty overflowed in the wealth of their liberality. For I testify that according to their ability, and beyond their ability, they gave voluntarily, begging us with much urging for the favor of participation in the support of the saints, and this, not as we had expected, but they first gave themselves to the Lord and to us by the will of God.

Psalm 30:5
For His anger is but for a moment,
His favor is for a lifetime.
Weeping may last for the night,
But a shout of joy comes in the morning.

Instead of praying away a problem not unto death or physical disability, we should endure it until we overcome it by the Spirit’s help. Why? If you do manage to pray it away, either something much worse might come along, it could have been a tool for your refinement, or both. Take up your cross, people! Better to suffer and overcome, than to never learn how to when the “something worse” does come.

Thought Splatters (Zoom!)

The closer you get to the Father; the weirder life will get. If you don’t believe me, read about backpedaling.

When going through an ordeal, patience and trust in His Perfect Will are required. This Assumes you are seeking Him on a daily basis and know His voice (all the different ways He “speaks” to us).

Fire – The Father destroying anything not of Him, cleansing impurities, preparation for starting over again. Notice: all of the things that made the Israelites impure will not be an issue in heaven.

Water – The Word Most Holy flowing around us, through us, and dwelling within (blood, life). Cleansing the aftermath of His fire. Washing off this world’s influence. Refreshing (cold water) and restorative (hot water).

Air – The Spirit that deals with us in our fallen state. Our connection with the Father. The spark of life that passes from parents to child, from the Father to our lungs, for He is the Breath of Lives. The anointing (bestowed power, authority) that revives us into a new life in Him.

Earth – Our crucible of refinement (proving grounds). The nature of the flesh, corrupted, yet operating in His order to sustain our lives. Nature obeys His order and will. His footstool. His symbol of human interaction in this plane of existence (the land needing Sabbath rests).

Sun, moon, stars – His time clock for us. His order on display in the sky. The precursor of His Son’s rule for He will be our light and we, His stars, reflecting His light.

Humans – A creation from a creation in which He breathed into life (spirit). His idols (images) on the Earth who symbolize Him in two parts: male and female. The most unclean flesh, yet covered by Yahshua’s blood (life, sacrifice) to keep from being destroyed or ignored.

Holy – Set apart by nature. Father does not like separation but endures for our sakes. Separate the pure (things and actions of Him) from the impure (profane, common). To be vulnerable (open-hearted). Our relationship with Him. His Son’s blood continuously covering our sins. Grace.

Righteousness – To take risks in His Will. Loving-kindness (patience) is an action. Humility (caring about what Yah thinks and acting accordingly). Mercy. Repentance (turning away from sin).

What is the point of all of this? Unlike the angels and other entities who rebelled, we go through refinement to confirm we actually want to be a part of Him. He is not going to trust His spiritual power and authority to rule with His Son to just anyone.

I am looking for a list of Greek Bible verses (Septuagint and NT) that use the aorist verb tense, which means “something that has happened and will continue to happen.” If anyone knows of one, please give me the link or document. Thanks in advance.

Yah’s Flow: Fire

Lord of All, You are continuous fire, for You demand holiness (air, spirit) in order for a being (fuel) to survive Your Presence (ignition, combustion).

Your fire, the trials and troubles of this life, guides us to You (lamp, light) and shapes us (refinement, purification) as we choose to serve You.

Your fire demands cleansing of our impurities, including the sacrifice of Your Son most brutal to save us. His baptism of fire, His cup of suffering, should have been ours.

Your fire consumes unrighteous ones to help His creation to stay functional for Your will to flourish, despite the corruption on Earth.

Your fire gives warmth (assurance) to those who seek You and see Your works.

Your fire is Your Light which burns within and on the faithful to shine into the dark corners of the world, a beacon to those seeking the Truth Who is the Person of Persons.

Your fire melts sin so the dross can be scraped off by the Rock of Your Word.

Your fire turns the influence of this world to ashes so the water of Your Word can wash it away.

We no longer stare after the fruit of the Tree of Life through the fiery weapon and wonder if we have to walk through it, for Christ is here and gave of Himself to hand us that fruit.

Amen

We Owe the Father an Apology

Romans 12 (BSB)
1Therefore I urge you, brothers, on account of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.

Matthew 16:19 and Matthew 18:18 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

We missed the whole point of all the sacrifices, including Yahshua’s: we are to become holy—purified for spiritual conduction—by the choices we make in our persons, in our minds, where we go, letting go of the world’s influence, etc. This includes our health. We, collectively, have not been taking care of the temples of our bodies. We have stuffed all kinds of drugs, fats, chemicals, over-processed foods, poorly raised meats, fake and real sweeteners into our mouths that harm us later in life. This COVID pandemic is a judgment (correction) against that behavior because poor health during the aging process wasn’t strong enough.

What do we do now?

First, repent. Repentance means to turn away from sin. In this case, make a plan to start changing the way we eat and what we eat. A great starting point is the Daniel Fast—vegan and no processed foods for a number of weeks, three being typical.

Start blessing your food before you eat and thanking him after you have finished. Eat a meal with your family and/or friends as often as you can.

Train yourselves to eat healthier choices. Cook and prepare foods in various ways to improve flavor and give yourselves options.

Avoid as much soda pop, junk, and restaurant food as possible. Involve the Lord in your daily food choices.

Avoid overeating or snacking all day, but you can ask the Lord to help you if you have this problem.

Heavenly Father, the ever-patient one, I am sorry I have not treated this housing for my and Your Spirits to the best of my ability. I have and will continue to improve how I care for it. Please continue to warn me of foods I should avoid and help me to know how to cleanse myself if I do eat the wrong things. I hope, one day, I will be able to grow some of my own vegetables.

Amen.

Thought Splatters: (Ping!)

Survival mode or instinct
Poverty spirit or mindset
Slave mentality
These are all the same condition the Lord wants man to overcome to become a part of Him.

Tares have no idea that they are tares. They look the same as wheat when young. Tares (darnel) grow straight up, while wheat curves downward as they mature. Wheat have been used as food for millennia; a handful of darnels is poisonous and can make one drowsy or drunk in small amounts.

Obedience is the first step. The next step: His Will becomes your desire.

Every sin we do contributes to the pollution of the atmosphere, giving the adversary increased power over all flesh. For example, if you engage in sex out of Yah’s order, you have contributed to the promotion of that sin spreading to others. Even though you may not have had children outside of marriage, your sexual activity does contribute to out-of-wedlock births. We are all spirit, which is why our souls can be influenced. This is why the Apostles repeatedly stressed imitating Christ. This is why Yahshua stressed watching what we say and do.

Anointings (ministries) get recycled, not souls.

To all who believe in the Pretribulation Rapture: What makes you think you are good enough to leave? How much fire, breaking, and cleansing have you allowed the Lord to do in you? Do you praise Him daily at least? Do you seek His Will and correction?

I have said this before, and it bears repeating: Father Yah has not stop revealing things either in the Scriptures or of Himself. You choose how deep you wish to go with Him. The only one stopping you is you. How much you care about the things of this existence is the problem.

Lazy people lie a lot. I have “lazy moments” and embrace them as rest periods. Sometimes boredom is a platform to the next move of Yah.

Yah can turn attacks from the adversary into good for His will to be accomplished. Are you opened to that?

Praise is returning to the Father everything He has given us: love, life, breath, words that enrich, joy, patience, etc. Please praise and honor Him before making your requests.

I feel like I am to keep people encouraged in the faith rather than evangelizing. Lord, is this true?

The Lord revealed to me the word hupotassó should have been translated support (not submit or subject) as in soldiers supporting their commanding officers, while the commanding officers gives to their soldiers what they need in order to support the objective. Supporting someone is a choice; not an imperative, or it will not be true. We serve a Creator Who wants us to choose Him and His Will, not out of obligation, but love. We should want that for others as well.

To connect and influence others, we must humble ourselves. Phrase things in a way that gives the other person the upper hand, to make the person feel his or her words or presence is valuable to you.
