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?


 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 →

That My Joy Be Fulfilled In You

John 17:11-19 NKJVNow I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are. 12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. 13 But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 15 I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. 18 As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth.

I want to examine this Scripture more closely and maybe understand why we do not experience the full impact of the passage. This scripture contains a prayer of Yahshua to Father Yahveh. He declares in this prayer that He has kept all that the Father has given Him. He hasn’t kept them in His own name but Yahshua declared they were kept in The Father’s name. Then Yahshua made a request of The Father “Holy Father keep through Your name those whom you have given me.”

Note in this scripture He gives a reason for His request. He has made the request that they may be one as He is with The Father. This prayer talks about being in agreement spiritually. It also talks about being in The Father’s name but ninety percent of the church does not even use or have a clue to what is His proper name. Read More →

The Meek Shall Inherit The Earth

Matt 5:5 “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth”. This statement made by our Master and the Mashiach Yahshua is most misunderstood.  He was speaking of the time when we would rule and reign with Him in the Millennial reign.

As man has so often done in the past we think he is talking about the present and that we will be prosperous if we will just be a floor-mat and let the world run over us. Just keep quiet and do not protest to loudly when the world denies our Creator and master Almighty Yahveh. Just be a limp wrested wimp and do not challenge any statement that anyone makes. Just be a push over for anyone’s ideology. My precious saint this concept could not possibly be any further from the truth.

I have a problem with people thinking that the image of a pastor should be some mealy mouth, limp wrested and politically correct person and not a man’s man in the least.  Now please do not misunderstand me I do not mean that a pastor should not be sensitive neither do I mean that he should have a boisterous or obnoxious manner. I am merely saying that he should not appear weak and compromising in his thoughts and mannerisms. He should have convictions and his passion for the convictions should be evident.

It really bothers me that T.V. Evangelist can make strong statements declaring certain catastrophes that came upon this nation were judgments from Almighty Yahveh and that there are further judgments coming. Then they will do a complete about face and apologize for the statement when they get resistance from their viewers. Either these statements are inspired warnings of The Almighty or not.  If they were from Yahveh then shame on you for apologizing, you should not have been so concerned about what the people thought and more concerned with what The Almighty said to you. However, if the statement was only your emotional reaction and a mere opinion you should have not spoken it out to begin with. Read More →

Be Light In A Dark World

John 3:17-21 For Almighty Yahveh did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of Almighty Yahveh. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in Almighty Yahveh.”

Yahshua came not into the world to condemn the world but He came that the world through Him might be saved. The light came and men chose darkness rather than light. He came to bring light that sin might appear exceedingly sinful. The light is the Torah and Yahshua was the Torah made flesh. The light came into the world and the world knew Him not. He taught us the meaning and the precepts of the Torah; (1) Love Almighty Yahveh with all your heart and (2) love your neighbor as yourself, on these two commands hinge all of the others.

If you love Almighty Yahveh with all your heart you will want to please Him. We know that we cannot please Him unless we obey Him and we cannot obey Him if we will not obey His commands. We cannot love our neighbor as ourselves if we retaliate against them for every wrong committed against us or if we intentionally wrong them because they do not please us. Man from the beginning of time has been misled by his emotions and the carnal desires of the flesh. Emotionally we are frustrated when we have failure after failure to attain the things desired by the lusts of the flesh. From the time of our natural birth in this world we are motivated by what our body desires and are controlled by physical needs. When we were hungry as a baby we set up a howl until we were fed. We screamed until we got what we wanted. Then came the natural result of being fed and we screamed until we got a diaper change. Can you see that by nature we are focused on the things of this world and the desires of this world; the things that are attractive to the eye and to be desired by our flesh.

When we receive a pleasing gift from a friend or a loved one there is an emotional reaction. Our lives are ruled by our emotions, excitement, disappointment, frustration, anger or pleasure all these are emotional reactions. Yahshua gave His life on the stake that we might have forgiveness of our sins. He went to the tomb on the evening of the Fourth Day (Wednesday) and arose the evening of the Seventh Day (Sat). When Yahshua arose He no longer had to fight the same battles in the physical that He had before His death on the stake. He had resurrected in power and victory over the grave. You can be assured in the flesh He did not want to go through the torment and torture of the tribunal and the stake. His physical and emotional reactions were “if it be possible spare me this cup.” That was the natural reaction. Blessed be the name of Almighty Yahveh His prayer did not end there, He was ruled by the Ruach (Spirit) not the flesh or emotions. He went on to pray “Not My will but Thou will be done” Yahshua’s commitment and devotion overruled His emotional and physical desires. Aren’t you glad they did? Yahshua could not get the victory apart from dying to His desires. Without death there is no resurrection. Yahshua died in the flesh, He willingly went to the stake. He trusted Almighty Yahveh to resurrect Him from the dead, not allowing His soul to see corruption. Yahshua was not focused on the things of this world but the eternal prize that was set before Him. Hebrews 12:2 “looking unto Yahshua, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the stake, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of Almighty Yahveh.” Read More →
