Stuff

December19, 2020

 

Stuff H3627 From H3615; something prepared, that is, any apparatus (as an implement, utensil, dress, vessel or weapon): - armour ([-bearer]), artillery, bag, carriage, + furnish, furniture, instrument, jewel, that is made of, X one from another, that which pertaineth, pot, + psaltery, sack, stuff, thing, tool, vessel, ware, weapon, + whatsoever.

[So anything that isn’t a person, animal or place must be stuff, work animals are treated as stuff. In today's world animals are often thought of more value than some people. The scriptures use the word over 130 times so Yahweh does recognize our attachment to our ‘stuff’. In the days of extreme trial will we be willing to give up stuff to serve Yahweh and remain true to Yahshua?]

(Gen 31:34-37 KJV) Now Rachel had taken the images, and put them in the camel's furniture, and sat upon them. And Laban searched all the tent, but found them not. 31:35 And she said to her father, Let it not displease my lord that I cannot rise up before thee; for the custom of women is upon me. And he searched, but found not the images. 31:36 And Jacob was wroth, and chode with Laban: and Jacob answered and said to Laban, What is my trespass? what is my sin, that thou hast so hotly pursued after me? 31:37 Whereas thou hast searched all my stuff, what hast thou found of all thy household stuff? set it here before my brethren and thy brethren, that they may judge betwixt us both.

[Even the images are stuff. Is not stuff what we work to gather together for our comfort and self gratification, as in ‘look at all my stuff’? The time is coming when we must make a choice between stuff and obedience. If we are overly fond of our stuff we will have a harder time leaving behind what we have gathered. This is especially true if what we have gathered defines us to ourselves and others.]

(Gen 45:16-20 KJV) And the fame thereof was heard in Pharaoh's house, saying, Joseph's brethren are come: and it pleased Pharaoh well, and his servants. 45:17 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Say unto thy brethren, This do ye; lade your beasts, and go, get you unto the land of Canaan; 45:18 And take your father and your households, and come unto me: and I will give you the good of the land of Egypt, and ye shall eat the fat of the land. 45:19 Now thou art commanded, this do ye; take you wagons out of the land of Egypt for your little ones, and for your wives, and bring your father, and come. 45:20 Also regard not your stuff; for the good of all the land of Egypt is yours.

[This is to be a peaceful move to a better place, yet there is still stuff. So how little stuff can you travel with?]

(Jos 7:11-12 KJV) Israel hath sinned, and they have also transgressed My covenant which I commanded them: for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also, and they have put it even among their own stuff. 7:12 Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies, because they were accursed: neither will I be with you any more, except ye destroy the accursed from among you.

[Have we stolen and hid what is accursed, could it be in our hearts rather our house?]

(1Sa 10:20-23 KJV) And when Samuel had caused all the tribes of Israel to come near, the tribe of Benjamin was taken. 10:21 When he had caused the tribe of Benjamin to come near by their families, the family of Matri was taken, and Saul the son of Kish was taken: and when they sought him, he could not be found. 10:22 Therefore they inquired of Yahweh further, if the man should yet come thither. And Yahweh answered, Behold, he hath hid himself among the stuff. 10:23 And they ran and fetched him thence: and when he stood among the people, he was higher than any of the people from his shoulders and upward.

[Why hide among the stuff? Maybe that is where you are comfortable and do not wish to take on more responsibility. Maybe you fear you will fail. In spite of Saul’s short comings Yahweh used him and He will also empower any of us when He asks us to step up to the plate.]

(1Sa 25:13 KJV) And David said unto his men, Gird ye on every man his sword. And they girded on every man his sword; and David also girded on his sword: and there went up after David about four hundred men; and two hundred abode by the stuff.

(1Sa 30:22-25 KJV) Then answered all the wicked men and men of Belial, of those that went with David, and said, Because they went not with us, we will not give them ought of the spoil that we have recovered, save to every man his wife and his children, that they may lead them away, and depart. 30:23 Then said David, Ye shall not do so, my brethren, with that which Yahweh hath given us, who hath preserved us, and delivered the company that came against us into our hand. 30:24 For who will hearken unto you in this matter? but as his part is that goeth down to the battle, so shall his part be that tarrieth by the stuff: they shall part alike. 30:25 And it was so from that day forward, that he made it a statute and an ordinance for Israel unto this day.

[Not all are called to the front lines in either the physical or the spiritual. Yahweh knows which person has been enabled to stand, and if He calls and you have a lack He will be there to provide and fill the lack. Why certain people over others who seem to be better prepared? Only Yahweh knows and for now He is not telling and why is it important?]

(Neh 13:7-9 KJV) And I came to Jerusalem, and understood of the evil that Eliashib did for Tobiah, in preparing him a chamber in the courts of the house of Almighty. 13:8 And it grieved me sore: therefore I cast forth all the household stuff of Tobiah out of the chamber. 13:9 Then I commanded, and they cleansed the chambers: and thither brought I again the vessels of the house of Almighty, with the meat offering and the frankincense.

[Tobiah was rich but not a follower of Yahweh. If our homes are where Yahweh has placed His name we have the right, nay duty, to not allow others to bring unrighteous stuff or people there.]

(Eze 12:3-7 KJV) Therefore, thou son of man, prepare thee stuff for removing, and remove by day in their sight; and thou shalt remove from thy place to another place in their sight: it may be they will consider, though they be a rebellious house. 12:4 Then shalt thou bring forth thy stuff by day in their sight, as stuff for removing: and thou shalt go forth at even in their sight, as they that go forth into captivity. 12:5 Dig thou through the wall in their sight, and carry out thereby.12:6   In their sight shalt thou bear it upon thy shoulders, and carry it forth in the twilight: thou shalt cover thy face, that thou see not the ground: for I have set thee for a sign unto the house of Israel. 12:7 And I did so as I was commanded: I brought forth my stuff by day, as stuff for captivity, and in the even I digged through the wall with mine hand; I brought it forth in the twilight, and I bare it upon my shoulder in their sight.

(Eze 12:8-15 KJV) And in the morning came the word of Yahweh unto me, saying,

12:9 Son of man, hath not the house of Israel, the rebellious house, said unto thee, What doest thou? 12:10 Say thou unto them, Thus saith the Most High Yahweh; This burden concerneth the prince in Jerusalem, and all the house of Israel that are among them. 12:11 Say, I am your sign: like as I have done, so shall it be done unto them: they shall remove and go into captivity. 12:12 And the prince that is among them shall bear upon his shoulder in the twilight, and shall go forth: they shall dig through the wall to carry out thereby: he shall cover his face, that he see not the ground with his eyes. 12:13 My net also will I spread upon him, and he shall be taken in My snare: and I will bring him to Babylon to the land of the Chaldeans; yet shall he not see it, though he shall die there. 12:14 And I will scatter toward every wind all that are about him to help him, and all his bands; and I will draw out the sword after them. 12:15 And they shall know that I am Yahweh, when I shall scatter them among the nations, and disperse them in the countries.

[Even as wicked leaders in the past have planned a way of escape should their rule fall, so have the leaders of today. Even as what goes around comes around in time past so it does today. Not that their come upperance will make our lives better, but we do not have to worry, Yahweh is on the job.]

(Luk 17:28-33 KJV) Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 17:29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 17:30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. 17:31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back. 17:32 Remember Lot's wife. 17:33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

[We must trust Yahweh for all including our daily bread. Each of us will chose good or evil. If we know Torah we know the difference. If our hearts are trusting in Yahweh we will be with Him when the end of time comes.]

(Rev 8:6-7 KJV) And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. 8:7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

[There is no place on earth this has happened. Large tracks have burned but not 1/3 of the trees of earth nor has all the grass of the earth been destroyed. Such an occurrence would be impossible to hide.]

(Rev 8:8-9 KJV) And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; 8:9 And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

 

[With today's cell phones with cameras there is no way such a happening could be hid. Not only that but there would be tidal waves that would destroy isles, islands, and sea coast for hundreds of miles inland.]

 

(Rev 8:10-11 KJV) And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; 8:11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

 

[Again this has not occurred yet. The Great Lakes are the largest body of fresh water in the world so we should be aware if this was in our past.]

 

(Rev 8:12-13 KJV) And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise. 8:13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

 

[There have been local happening but never has a third part of the sky been effected where it would affect the whole earth. This will come about after the first three trumpets and the world is already in turmoil. These four trumpets fall on the entire earth for we of the earth have become inter-dependent. Note these first trumpets are terrible but what is to come after is called a woe, much worse. So far the entire population has been affected, but what comes next?]

 

(Rev 9:1-6 KJV) And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 9:2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 9:3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of Almighty in their foreheads. 9:5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. 9:6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.

 

[The fifth trumpet brings on a loosing of the evil angels, but even then they will be restrained from harming Yahweh’s children for they, Yahweh’s children, have already received the seal of Yahweh. The two witness have 1260 days to do their work, and the evil one has 1260 days. It is possible that they run con-current. At this point it seems there may still be opportunity to receive salvation. Still not a mark.]

 

(Rev 9:12-17 KJV) One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter. 9:13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before Almighty, 9:14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. 9:15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.

9:16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. 9:17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.

 

[Yahweh has already set the time, man has no say.]

 

(Rev 9:18-21 KJV) By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. 9:19 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt. 9:20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: 9:21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

 

[During the sixth trumpet there seems people could change if they wanted to.]

 

(Rev 11:1-6 KJV) And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of Almighty, and the altar, and them that worship therein. 11:2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the Set-apart city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. 11:3 And I will give power unto My two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. 11:4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the Almighty of the earth. 11:5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. 11:6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

 

(Rev 11:7-14 KJV) And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Master was crucified. 11:9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. 11:10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. 11:11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from Almighty entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. 11:12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. 11:13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave honor to the Almighty of heaven. 11:14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

 

[The beginning time of the appearance of the two witnesses is not given nor is the ending, but the event named at the end is a great earthquake.]

 

(Rev 6:12-15 KJV) And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 6:13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 6:14   And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 6:15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

(Rev 16:17-19 KJV) And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. 16:18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. 16:19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before Almighty, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

[The seals are a telling of woes for mankind in the last days, so does the sixth seal and the sixth trumpet happen together? Will Yahweh have a vocal, visual, witnesses right up until Yahshua appears? Or are the seals the period of the first 4 trumpets.?The vials are the punishment of the determined wicked and happen after the redeemed have joined Yahshua so this is not applicable.]

(Rev 11:15-19 KJV) And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Most High, and of His Messiah; and He shall reign for ever and ever. 11:16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before Almighty on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped Almighty, 11:17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Most High Yahweh Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. 11:18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. 11:19 And the temple of Almighty was opened in heaven, and there was seen in His temple the ark of His testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.

[Yahweh often speaks in the small quite voice, but there are times when everyone needs to hear and see, these are times of great noise and physical upheaval. So when does the mark of the beast come in?]

(Rev 13:1-9 TS2009) And I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads names of blasphemy. 13:2 And the beast I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power, and his throne, and great authority. 13:3 And I saw one of his heads, as having been slain to death, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the earth marvelled after the beast. 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon who gave authority to the beast. And they worshipped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to fight with him?” 13:5 And he was given a mouth speaking great matters and blasphemies, and he was given authority to do so forty-two months. 13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against Almighty, to blaspheme His Name, and His Tent, and those dwelling in the heaven. 13:7 And it was given to him to fight with the set-apart ones and to overcome them. And authority was given to him over every tribe and tongue and nation. 13:8 And all those dwelling on the earth, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the slain Lamb, from the foundation of the world shall worship him. 13:9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear.

[The appearance of the first beast. If as most churches believe the Catholic Church is this beast, and as some teach its power was broken with the imprisonment of the pope by Neapolitan {?}that would have been in the 1700 ‘s. So why are we still here?]

 

(Rev 13:10-13 TS2009) He who brings into captivity shall go into captivity, he who kills with the sword has to be killed with the sword [Jer 15:2, Jer 43:11] Here is the endurance and the belief of the set-apart ones. 13:11 And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 13:12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13:13 And he does great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from the heaven on the earth before men. Footnote: a See also Gen 9:6. Compare Rev 13:1-13 with Dan 7:1-28. [See also Rev. 9.1-6]

 

[This second beast re-establishes the power of the first beast.]

 

(Rev 13:14-18 TS2009) And he leads astray those dwelling on the earth because of those signs which he was given to do before the beast, saying to those dwelling on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword, yet lived. 13:15 And there was given to him to give spirit to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause to be killed as many as would not worship the image of the beast. 13:16 And he causes all, both small and great, and rich and poor, and free and slave, to be given a mark upon their right hand or upon their foreheads, 13:17 and that no one should be able to buy or sell except he that has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 13:18 Here is the wisdom! He who has understanding, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is six hundred and sixty six. b Footnote: b Some ancient manuscripts have 616 instead of 666.

[The power behind the second beast is the one coming up out of the earth, not the beast itself. But here is the mark, not of Yahweh which is internal and shown by life style, I believe this is a physical mark. I know we live in an electronic world but after the first 4 trumpets that will no longer be true around the world. This mark has nothing to do with a heart relationship, just the head. Does your heart control or your head. How about a team where heart and head are in agreement? That is what it will take to make a safe passage, not just in the last days, but always, else you will always be wavering neither hot nor cold or maybe back and forth.

If the beast of the 5th trumpet is given 42 months time, that is 3 ½ years unless it is a day for a year and I do not believe that, there will be more time to repent but it will be a costly repentance for sure. If the two witnesses are present at that time nobody will be able to say they had no opportunity to know the truth. Those who already knew have made their choice but are here given a chance to repent. Many worry about receiving the mark of the beast by deceit. As with Yahweh’s mark it can only be received with your full knowledge and consent. Unlike Yahweh’s mark it will be forced not freely given. Still we are all responsible for our choices. If you are living in fear of this mark you are not trusting Yahweh’s word to be true.]

(Exo 20:20 KJV) And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for Almighty is come to prove you, and that His fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not.

[All trouble is a test. How you face trouble is a test of how close you walk with Yahweh. Fear is awe, an inspiration, as in “I fear to fail you’.]

(Deu 31:6 KJV) Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for Yahweh thy Almighty, He it is that doth go with thee; He will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

(2Ki 6:16-17 KJV) And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. 6:17 And Elisha prayed, and said, Yahweh, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And Yahweh opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.

(Isa 35:4 KJV) Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your Almighty will come with vengeance, even Almighty with a recompence; He will come and save you.

(Mat 10:28 KJV) And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

(Luk 12:5-7 KJV) But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear Him, which after He hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear Him. 12:6 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before Almighty? 12:7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

[The evil one is not in charge of Hell, only Yahweh has the say of who enters and who does not enter hell.]

(Luk 12:32 KJV) Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

(Isa 49:16 KJV) Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of My hands; thy walls are continually before me.

(Psa 91:4 KJV) He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

[We all know we can take nothing from this life but what is promised, our existence. So let us begin to separate our hearts from our stuff so our stuff does not rule our hearts. Most of the Jews who went to the camps of the Nazis had been warned to flee before their lives were in danger. Yet they stayed for their stuff which the government would not allow them to take with them. No one who can read, hear, or see has any right to claim they were not warned for both truth and fiction have given the warning. Stuff is just stuff and when we die it will be here for someone else to have. No matter what side you take, Yahweh or evil, you will not leave this life with stuff.]

(2Ti 1:7 KJV) For Almighty hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

(1Jn 4:18 KJV) There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

[Do you believe you are walking aright with Yahweh and Yahshua? If so why are you worrying? You weaken not only yourselves but any who are not strong enough to stand alone. Our walk should be such that we trust Yahweh not only with finding things for us and healing our ills, but most important we must trust Him with our future.]
