New Questions

What do dishes and utensils symbolize in Scripture? I had a microdream: one of my tangerine-colored dinner plate had a two inch crescent shape broken off its edge. Does it mean service, since that is what plates are designed to do? Is there something wrong with my service to the Father?

Although the land was a constant theme in the OT, Yahshua never mentions or eludes to it. He told the woman at the well that no long would people worship Yah on that mountain or in Jerusalem (John 4:21). He paid the price in order to bless the world, but why not mention Israel? Does the land in the OT actually symbolize sanctified people in the NT?

I will seek, read, and wait for the answer.

Super Quick Bible Study: Personal Meaning of the Name ‘Immanuel’

Psalm 37:23 The steps of a man are ordered by YHVH, and He delights in his way.

Proverbs 16:1 The plans of the heart belong to man, but the reply of the tongue is from YHVH.

Proverbs 16:9 A man’s heart plans his course, but YHVH determines his steps.

Proverbs 19:21 Many plans are in a man’s heart, but the purpose of YHVH will prevail.

Proverbs 20:24 A man’s steps are from YHVH, so how can anyone understand his own way?

Jeremiah 10:23 I know, O YHVH, that a man’s way is not his own; no one who walks directs his own steps.

Yah wants to come along as we walk the path to Him that He has laid. Although we may desire to be willing “vessels… fit for the Master to use.” [2 Timothy 2:21], our mission is to become like Christ so we can rule alongside Him [2 Timothy 2:12, 1 Corinthians 6:3, Revelation 3:21], meaning we have to make decisions through reasoning.

2 Timothy 2:15 (NKJV) Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Ephesians 1:13-14 (ESV) In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in Him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of His glory.

James 1:21 Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and every expression of evil, and humbly receive the word planted in you, which can save your souls.

Reasoning correctly is a practice; He promised to help us achieve it and give grace when we make a mistake—which is not always a sin.

Super Quick Bible Study: Spirits Have Assignments

We focus so much on the passages about the heavenly (and earthly) messengers, we forget that there are other beings subject to the Name of All Names, the Authority of All Authorities:

1 Samuel 16:14 After the Spirit of YHWH had departed from Saul, a spirit of distress from YHWH began to torment him.

1 Kings 22:20-22 (ESV) “…and YHWH said, ‘Who will entice Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramoth-gilead?’ And one said one thing, and another said another. Then a spirit came forward and stood before YHWH, saying, ‘I will entice him.’ And YHWH said to him, ‘By what means?’ And he said, ‘I will go out, and will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’ And He said, ‘You are to entice him, and you shall succeed; go out and do so.’”

Judges 9:23 Yah sent an evil spirit between Abimelech and the leaders of Shechem and caused them to treat Abimelech deceitfully…

Isaiah 19:14 YHWH has poured into her a spirit of confusion. Egypt has been led astray in all she does, as a drunkard staggers around in his vomit.

2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear [cowardness, timidity], but of power, love, and self-control.

Isaiah 11:2 The Spirit of YHWH will rest on Him—the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and strength, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of YHWH.

Romans 8:15 For you did not receive a spirit of slavery that returns you to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”

1 Corinthians 2:12 We have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us.

Every positive and negative emotion (or action) can come from things outside of ourselves. These beings (including what we call demons) can only influence us, if we allow them to. This is why seeking His face daily is vitally important. Why would Yah allow for such a thing?

Isaiah 45:7 I form light and create darkness; I bring prosperity and create calamity. I, YHWH, do all these things.

Isaiah 42:16 I will lead the blind by a way they did not know; I will guide them on unfamiliar paths. I will turn darkness into light before them and rough places into level ground. These things I will do for them, and I will not forsake them.

Lamentations 3:38 Do not both adversity and good come from the mouth of the Most High?

Because of the corruption in the world and the flesh, YHWH uses everything, even our good and bad choices, to get His will done. Remember, this Earth is our crucible of refinement. He is not going to trust anyone with spiritual power and authority (ruling with Christ) without testing and cleansing. We must experience the bad in order to desire, appreciate, and encourage the good.

Revelation 3:21 To the one who is victorious, I will grant the right to sit with Me on My throne, just as I overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

1 Corinthians 6:2 Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent to judge trivial cases?

2 Timothy 2:12 …if we endure, we will also reign with Him; if we deny Him, He will also deny us.

Super Quick Bible Study: The Law Written on the Heart

Ezekiel 11:19 And I will give them singleness of heart and put a new spirit within them; I will remove their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh.

Ezekiel 36:26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.

Jeremiah 24:7 I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the LORD. They will be My people, and I will be their God, for they will return to Me with all their heart.

Jeremiah 31:33 “But this is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the LORD. I will put My law in their minds and inscribe it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they will be My people.

Jeremiah 32:39 I will give them one heart and one way, so that they will always fear Me for their own good and for the good of their children after them.

Hebrews 8:10 For this is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord. I will put My laws in their minds and inscribe them on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they will be My people.

Hebrews 10:16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws on their hearts, and write them on their minds.

2 Corinthians 3:3 It is clear that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.

To write His Law (Instructions) on the heart is the Will of Yah He Himself puts into each believer’s heart. No two sets of Instructions are like anyone else’s. Jesus demonstrated this with the rich young ruler (Matthew 19:16-30; Mark 10:17-31; Luke 18:18-30) by requiring him to get rid of his possession and follow Him. Giving up wealth was not a commandment given by Moses; the order was specifically for the young man.

Does anyone trust Father Yah to do this?

Super Quick Bible Study: Do the Word, Not Just Study It

James 1:22-27 (ESV)

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.

If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless. Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.

In modern-day vernacular:

Get up off your behind and go do something. Quit sitting around over-analyzing this stuff because your opinions and viewpoints change constantly. Quit debating. Seek the will of Yah and obey (listen and do). You see all these people who need help; go help them. Your life is a mess; go fix it.

Jesus Is God’s Voice

Do believers really understand WHAT Jesus is? He WAS the Word of God before He became flesh. He was the WORDS Father Yah spoke to form creation. Jesus came to be (beget – came from) when Yah SPOKE, therefore, giving Jesus authority over creation before His blood was shed. Before the written word. That’s why Scripture says He was the firstborn of creation. His preeminence comes from being God’s Voice.

There is an awesomeness of that knowledge most refuse to comprehend or take to heart.

Super Quick Bible Study: Ask, Seek, and Knock

Matthew 7:7-11 (Luke 11:5-13) Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? So, if you who are evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

No prayer, no power.

No seeking, no revelation.

No persistence, no results.

Race and Ethnicity, Time’s Up!

Ephesians 2:11-16 Therefore remember that formerly you who are Gentiles in the flesh and called uncircumcised by the so-called circumcision (that done in the body by human hands)— remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ.

For He Himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has torn down the dividing wall of hostility by abolishing in His flesh the law of commandments and decrees. He did this to create in Himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace and reconciling both of them to God in one body through the cross, by which He extinguished their hostility.

Romans 3:29 Is God the God of Jews only? Is He not the God of Gentiles too? Yes, of Gentiles too.

Romans 8:1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

1 Corinthians 7:19 Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing. Keeping God’s commandments is what matters.

1 Corinthians 12:13 For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free, and we were all given one Spirit to drink.

Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Galatians 5:6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. All that matters is faith, expressed through love.

Galatians 6:15 For neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything. What counts is a new creation.

Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance as our way of life.

Colossians 2:20 If you have died with Christ to the spiritual forces of the world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its regulations:

Colossians 3:10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.

Colossians 3:11 Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, or free, but Christ is all and is in all.

Colossians 3:15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, for to this you were called as members of one body. And be thankful.

 

Let’s be clear and never doubt: YHWH is in complete control of this world. There are many reasons why YHWH wants the number of interracial/multi-ethnic couples and multiracial/multi-ethnic children to increase. Make no mistake; He still loves variety and diversity, but it is not the end-all or be-all of his ultimate plan. Throughout Scripture, this has happened, and the results are mixed. The negatives always happened due to people not seeking Yah on the matter. Some of the positives ended up in Yahshua’s bloodline.

Yes, there were reasons why races and ethnic groups were formed. I contend they have already served their purpose throughout the world, and some still will. YHWH is not a stagnant God; He moves forward, and it is up to us to stay caught up by continuing to seek His will and follow it. The Bible is a story of progression. Therefore, we also must progress in our story, our walk with Him, and what He will have us believe.

To believers who think multiracial/multi-ethnic children should not exist: you do not know the Creator as well as you think you do. Please, seek the Father’s opinion before shooting yours into the Body, causing confusion.

May Yah get the glory in everything. Amen.

Super Quick Bible Study: Yah’s Breath

Genesis 2:7 Then YHWH God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.

In the Hebrew, it says the breath of lives. Chay (Hebrew) – age, life; plural chaiyim – lives, ages.

Revelation 11:11 And after the three and a half days, the breath [spirit] of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon those beholding them.

The same thing is in Greek New Testament; it says breath [spirit] of lives.

I wanted to know what those lives were. This is the answer I got.

The components of Yah’s breath blown into us are living, speaking, reproducing, everlasting. They are symbolized by the four winds in Scripture.

Take this to the Lord in prayer. Amen.
