Looking for Kadoshness

Looking for KADOSHNESS

The first topic I would like to bring attention to is the fact that the stabilizing factor has been removed from the home. As I discuss this I do understand that some may misunderstand the intent and purpose of this discussion. I believe this is a risk that I have to deal with and try by the power of Almighty Yahveh to communicate with purpose. It is easy to be misunderstood when involved in a verbal conversation and much easier when communication is by writing. However, no matter, how great the task of communicating on this subject without offense, I intend to attempt to do so with all the love and grace The Father will grant me.

We are living in a generation that seems to have lost it’s reference point. This generation was raised without some of the benefits that my generation experienced. It is very possible I was among the last generation to experience the influence of iron clad absolutes.

That is not to say we never broke those iron clad absolutes, we did so many times but the difference is that we knew when we were doing wrong, and we knew how to correct the problem. However, if we didn’t know how to correct the issue our parents were not to preoccupied to steer us in the right direction. Sometimes it was required that they apply pressure to the seat of knowledge to encourage opening up of our understanding.

We had a good understanding of the fact that there was consequences to our actions. We were not rewarded for bad behavior in order to improve our self image. If we ignored people’s rights and trampled over their feelings our feelings were ignored. We experienced the fact that pain occurs when people’s feelings are ignored.

I have never known a child that was ecstatic over receiving punishment for unacceptable behavior. “Hebrews 12:10-11  Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”  Without consequences for bad behavior where is the incentive to change their practices? Some may have a tender spirit that you can reason with and when they understand that you are displeased with them and will modify their behavior. There are some that need a little more encouragement, I was one of the children that needed a little more encouragement.

The age of Dr Spock had just came in and the age of permissiveness was on the horizon. The Ladies Home Journal had Dr. Spock’s column advising you on a more acceptable and more productive way to raise your child. He promoted the idea that physical punishment was barbaric. He also promoted the idea it was counter productive and it inhibited our children and prevented them from expressing themselves.

Dr. Spock believed that if your child was frustrated with your decision or judgment as a small child they should be allowed to throw a fit, get down in the floor and kick scream. This allows them to understand that they are allowed to express themselves freely.

The result of the Dr. Spock’s generation is we have a whole generation of people who live in excess. Excessive behaviors is a way of expressing yourself. However, it most likely not the most expedient way of expressing your emotions. There are acceptable ways to express ourselves and unacceptable means; we need to be able to distinguish the difference between the two.

There are some men who express their frustration with their wives by slapping them around.  This is totally unacceptable, inappropriate and criminal behavior. However, they have in many cases never been trained to respect their mother or rules. Nothing is absolutely wrong so with proper provocation hitting their wife is understandable and others will understand. No they won’t and most of all Almighty Yahveh won’t understand or accept the behavior.

What Dr. Spock and this liberal generation fail to acknowledge is that the relationship a young boy has with his mother will resemble the relationship he will have with his wife. No respect for boundaries set by his mother, he will probably have little or no respect boundaries set by his wife in a marital relationship.

2 Peter 2:18-21

“For when they speak great swelling words of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error. 19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by whom a person is overcome, by him also he is brought into bondage. 20 For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Master and Savior Yahshua Ha Meshiach, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning. 21 For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the Kadosh commandment delivered to them.”

I love this scripture; the apostle seemed to be looking down thru the ages to this generation. It seems he could see the condition that plagues this society: a selfish, self-focused and self-indulgent populace. This generation wants to give the Father no time or consideration and expects the Father to be there at his or her beck and call.

The traditional church has thumbed their noses to Almighty Yahveh. There is sin in the church at every turn. The sad thing about it is that too many times the pastors are more interested in their career than the congregation’s salvation.  More often, they focus on the consequences of the strong hard message rather the consequences of placation and compromise.

There are the intellectuals that we have to impress with our great swelling words of theology and earthly wisdom.  Pastors are taught more psychology, focused on justification for the failures that reign in so many lives.  Their focus in far too many cases is on numbers and offering rather than the word of Almighty Yahveh; more interest in the art of pacification rather than the power of deliverance.

Living in Truth

Rom 1:16-17 for I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Mashiach, for it is the power of Almighty Yahveh to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of Sovereign is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “”The just shall live by faith.”” Paul is making a statement here for the people to understand where he stood and what his convictions were. I am not in the least bit embarrassed by the gospel of Yahshua. The reason I am not embarrassed by the gospel is that it is not a Greek philosophy having no power to do either good or evil but a manifestation of the will and the power of Almighty Yahveh to save a lost and wayward generation.

The key word in the scripture above is the power of Almighty Yahveh to deliver all who will trust Him to deliver from sin and destruction through Yahshua Mashiach. When we come to Yahveh through Yahshua, we are to be a new creation. We are no longer to be a bottle floating on the water going along with the flow. We are no longer powerless & at the mercy of the enemy who has no power over Yah’s children.  Much like the person whose about  to be murdered and in his hand is a loaded gun all the power he needs to avoid being murdered is in his hand, but he doesn’t know how to release the safety mechanism. In this situation, he had all the power he needed to save his life and the lives of his family, however due to lack of knowledge he and his family perished.

Hos 4:6 6 “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your Sovereign, I also will forget your children”. In the case of the man with the gun, he must release the safety and pull the trigger in order to release the power of the gun. He held the power in his hand but did not know how to release the power therefore, he perished needlessly.

Many of the saints today do not understand how to release the power of the gospel.  What I hope to do today is to teach you how to load your weapon and to release the safety so you can release the power when needed to protect yourself or your family (brothers and sisters in Yahshua). Every believer that has been washed in the blood of Yahshua has access to the weapons of our warfare. Unlike the carnal weapon we talked about above these weapons are spiritual and much more powerful even to the pulling down of strongholds.

As in carnal weapons, your spiritual weapons must be loaded. Now I am not going to teach you how to load a pistol or a rifle but I am going to teach you how to load the most powerful weapon in the world, the power of Almighty Yahveh by the Ruach HaKadosh. This weapon is mighty to the pulling down all the strongholds that Ha Satan has set up in your life.   2 Cor 10:4-5 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through Almighty Yahveh to the pulling down of strong holds;)  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of The Almighty, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Mashiach. This scripture tells you of the importance of bringing every thought into captivity causing it (the thought) to submit to life and teachings of Yahshua. Read More →

Faith or Fantasy

(Eze 14:4 The Scriptures 1998+) “Therefore speak to them, and you shall say to them, ‘Thus said the Master YHVH, (Yahveh) “Everyone of the house of Yisra’el who sets up his idols in his heart, and puts the stumbling-block of his crookedness before his face, and shall come to the prophet – I YHVH (Yahveh) shall answer him who comes, according to his many idols. A group of elders had come before Ezekiel to seek almighty Yahveh. They were looking for answers that were pleasing to their ears; that would deliver them from their difficulties and comfort them like many of us do today.  Never mind the fact that we have a heart that is loaded with transgression, idolatrous attitudes, idolatry in our hearts. You might ask, why are you saying this to the church? “The churches do not have idols in them; they do not bow down to idols”.

I say you are very mistaken; the church as we know it today is full of idols and idolatrous practices. Have you ever been into a Catholic Church? The first thing you see is a statue of the Queen of Heaven that has been renamed and titled the Virgin Mary. They have convinced believers that Almighty Yahveh wants them to bow down and kiss that horrid ugly piece of junk. The sad thing is that they follow the priest instructions and never require an authentication of the practice.

The protestant church is just as bad or worse. They criticize the Catholic Church saying that it is forbidden to bow down to graven images and are in sin. Yet they have a cross right behind the podium. It just happens to be right in front of the alter where people bow down to pray to their Sovereign and I am not questioning to whom they pray. What I am questioning is why they ignore the Fathers command and have the image of something before Him. To make it worse, they do not even have a clue that the cross is the image of Tamuz a false deity.   Read More →

Where Is the Fear?

WHERE IS THE FEAR?

 There is something missing in the modern traditional church. I am not singling out any particular denomination as I think all have shortcomings. The Word teaches so much about the “fear” of the master yet the modern church refuses to teach it’s members to fear Almighty Yahveh; reckoning that the members will think they worship a mean deity.

I have had people correct me when I talk about the fear of Almighty Yahveh saying, “I don’t serve an angry deity the deity I serve is a loving deity”. I want you to know that I agree with them, we do serve a loving deity. He loved us so much that He rescued us when we had no hope of rescuing ourselves.

We were dead in our sins and doomed to destruction. We had no answers for our dilemma; we were struggling in a cesspool of sin and death. We didn’t even know that we were struggling in sin and death much less knowing the answer to our situation rests is in the Living Sovereign.

We had no fear of Almighty Yahveh because we did not know the consequences of disobedience or the joy of being in obedience to The Almighty through Yahshua HaMashiach. How can you fear something that you know nothing about or that you doubt that existence? The existence of the deity must be a reality to you or the consequences cannot be real to you.

Ps 34:11 “Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of Almighty Yahveh.” I want to try to do what David attempted to do for the children of Israel. I want to try to teach you the benefits of the fear of Almighty Yahveh.

First, there are two categories of fear here. First category is the fear of being without the protection of His Covenant.  In which there is great protection. We live in a violent world and the prince of the power of the air is in control of the violent as they are about doing his biding for him.  His mission on this earth is to rob, kill and destroy and there is no protection against his purposes except the covenant of Almighty Yahveh.      Read More →
