Hezekiah was a good king who was sick unto death. He prayed for healing and Yahweh granted it, and the king rejoiced. The king of Babylon heard of his sickness and healing and sent his good wishes. When the ambassadors came Hezekiah bragged of his riches instead of giving praise to Yahweh for his healing. As a result Yahweh cursed the nation, but the curse was not to fall before the king's death,15 years later. When the king heard he rejoiced even though part of the curse was for his sons to become eunuchs in the service of the king of Babylon. If your life was to be extended how would you use that time? Would it be in praise of Yahweh? Would it be spent to further the work? Or would it be in your pleasure?

!!!

Ever said or thought, “I'm worthless”? The reason behind the thought is not the problem. The problem rest in your ignorance [lack of knowledge], or your refusal of Yahweh's connection to you personally. If you do not know it let me give you the GOOD NEWS! Yahweh created you in His image – so within you is the power to bring to pass that which you desire, for your Father is the Great Creator! Accept that for the fact it is and you will begin to realize your worth to the one that loves you without ceasing.

!!!

If I choose [with conscience thought] to do that which is displeasing to Yahweh both Yahweh and I lose. I lose basking in His presence since I am sinning and cannot live in His presence. Yahweh also has lost, temporarily we pray, His pleasure in me. Only the evil wins!

!!!

Yahweh is our lighthouse and He uses many ways to warn us of danger. But if you don't keep your hand on the helm of your ship there is no help. So be the human master of your ship and keep your hand on the tiller and your eyes and ears on the lighthouse to avoid disaster.

!!!

We study Torah [the teachings and instructions of Yahweh] so we will have well defined boundaries that are pleasing to Yahweh. Boundaries that will help us make choices that lead to success in life, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

!!!

Create in me a clean heart oh Yahweh, let my failures not separate me from your heart. Let my heart beat in tune with your heart and I will be whole.

!!!

There must be a 1000 and 01 points on our bodies that respond to touch. This is the reason it is hard to resist in-appropriate sexual behavior if we allow others to explore our bodies which are called “temples” for Yahweh's spirit to live in.

Marriage is hard work! But we often make it harder than it needs to be. Consider the differences between two husbands manner of dealing with their wives infertility. Issac prayed for Rachel and Elkanah chided Hannah for her desire. [1 Sam 1.8 and Gen.25.21]

!!!

At the end of the day count each blessing no matter how small. You are cooking and you have all the ingredients you need in sufficient quantity – its a blessing not everyone has! It did not rain on your plans – its a blessing! No body got sick today – its a blessing! We rarely take the time to go over our day and pick out the blessings, but when we do, do we give Yahweh the credit? The more you thank Him the better you will feel about your life and relationship with Him and the stronger your trust in Him will grow!

!!!

“Your Almighty” This phase has always bothered me that in scripture this phase is often used in conversations dealing with actions between two whom we are lead to believe serve Yahweh. Perhaps it is to remind one or both who is really 'in charge'.

!!!

If something in scriptures offend you – pray for your understanding to be increased! Many times it is ourselves who are giving the offense.

!!!

I might waffle in the wind for a minute but my roots are firmly planted in Yahweh and Yahshua and they will keep me from falling. But if I fall they are waiting for me to be willing to accept Their help to get back up.

!!!

If you know me you know I have always been a type A person. So you might be surprised that I chose accounting as a career. When you live a fast paced, unsettled life you need an anchor. In the world my anchor was work that always balanced [if you put everything where it belongs it always comes to the expected end] and I needed that to keep sane. Now Yahweh is my anchor and the world of dis-order has a harder time entering my heart and head, for I now have a plan. A plan that leads to a home of peace, contentment, and unselfish love. The home of the redeemed. I have yielded both the neck and the knee to Yahweh and entered His presence through the door of Yahshua's shed blood which has covered my past sins, all of them! I now have a connection that nothing in this world can disrupt unless I allow it. My plan is to follow where ever He lead!

!!!

I had a distant relative who died as a result of the hiccups. She had them for years. You know them, that is right, that jerk in the middle of the torso that stops your breath, won't let you eat or drink as long as they last. SO – my family has a lot of 'cures', none of which has ever worked for me. One time they started and I grabbed a container of salt and took a taste and they stopped. So far, 2 years, and it is still working. One of those blessing of Yahweh that I thank Him for every time it happens.

!!!

I meet many angry people who rail against those who did not teach them truth but error. Would it not be better for your physical, mental and spiritual health to rejoice in the truth you have now been given? Only angry people enjoy the company of other angry people. Most seek those who offer peace, the peace that only comes to a heart and life surrendered to Yahweh and whose past bad choices are covered by the blood of Yahshua.

!!!

In Mathew 8.28-34 it tells of 2 demon possessed men. In Luke 8.26-37 there is only one 1 man. Why? Only one man sought freedom! You ask not – you have not!

!!!

In my lifetime, until Yahweh intervened, I did not trust other women and therefore developed no lasting relationships. What I did not realize is that only your own sex, male or female, can truly understand what is going with your emotions! Now I have lasting relationships with women of all ages. Women who support me emotionally, and women who support me spiritually, and the best friends are those handful who support me both emotionally and spiritually. Some are local, other are spread across this country. All available when needed – and there are times when it takes all of them to get me though the really tough spots.

If you are like I was - friendless, pray for one! Then start paying attention to those already around you. Who knows? She might have been setting beside you waiting for you to let her in. Thus two prayers would be answered at the same time, yours and hers!

PS: Do not let the enemy draw you into unhealthy relationships by lying to you about what sin is!

Sin is the turning the back on Yahweh's PLAIN TEACHINGS given in scriptures starting in Genesis and ending in Revelation. If we have sinned there is forgiveness when we see and acknowledge our actions as sin.

!!!

I study and write, rest and contemplate in my bed. It has always been that way from my earliest memory. Why! It is a safe, comfortable place. Only a few trespass on this area, so uninterrupted thought is possible., I think everyone needs their own 'hidey hole' to really know themselves. A safe place! My grandson has always referred to that space as a nest!

!!!

When I think of the word guard I think: protect from – harm, loss, pain, etc.. I also think of protecting from evil intent. In the KJV the third command is translated so it says we are to not take His name in vain. Others state we are to guard it. No matter how you look at it we are to reverence His name! He destroyed Egypt that they might learn His name and fear Him. Through out scriptures He tells us His name is important to Him and should therefore be important to us. If we hide it, alter it, or replace it how can we be walking in obedience? If we change His Son's name so Yah is not there are we not taking away from scriptures?

!!!

A man who once stood behind the pulpit of a large church, and had been put out for a sin that could have sent him to prison, asked me if it was scriptural for him to return to preaching.

I thought of the one who wanted to go with Yahshua after he had said good by to family. Yahshua's answer:

(Luk 9:62 LITV)  But Yahshua said to him, No one putting his hand on the plow, and looking at the things behind, is fit for the kingdom of Almighty.

 

So my answer was no, given without time to pray or researching the question.

Now I would give him a different answer for I have not had peace with the first.

 

(Mat 12:30-32 TS2009)  “He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad. 12.31 “Because of this I say to you, all sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit shall not be forgiven men. 12:32 “And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Adam, it shall be forgiven him, but whoever speaks against the Set-apart Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.”

 

I do not know exactly what the man's sin included, but I doubt it was blasphemy. My first answer was self righteous and cruel and I would ask forgiveness but he does not take my calls. Be slow to reply for words can kill both spirit and life.

 

I did offer some hope as I told him the following. When we fall so far it is hard to achieve a name to be trusted to handle the Word correctly. Still there are many ways to serve in the congregation and in the world. His return to Yahweh is an example that could encourage many who have also fallen. Start with a place where reputation is not required to serve, where $'s are not the end aim, and build a life of service to Yahweh's desired end for each of us. They also serve who take care of the 'stuff'. Those things no one wants to do that really need to be done are a good place to start. They will be glad to have you!

 

!!!

Praise Him! Praise Him who gave us lips that can smile and eyes that can dance! Praise Him!

 

!!!

I cannot make the entire earth a place of safety and love. But I can determine, one choice at a time, to choose the good and make the place I am in a place of safety and love!

The best protection for your property is nosy neighbors – they come with free shipping, no tax and of course an opinion and require no installation.

 

!!!

We are what we are:

If others come to you to learn, and they learn – you are a teacher!

If others come to you to be healed and they are healed – you are a healer!

If others come to you to be comforted and they are comforted– you are a comforter!

If others come to you to build for them and you do the job – you are a builder!

We are what we do with or without a title, even if not all the world agrees!

Did I tell you about the time I went to work in Seattle? My husband and I drove there from Michigan in March using a car from an auto delivery firm. Arrived dead broke, nothing to pawn as we gave up the last pawn-able thing to pay for the ferry. We went to Boeing Aircraft's employment office hoping for a job but without an address or phone number it would be iffy. Met a young lady in the waiting room and got to talking. She was married to a cowboy who lived on the ranch where he worked and did not get home often. She had a large apartment and invited us to stay with her free of charge. We all got hired that day and began work the following Monday.

Talk about Yahweh's provision, and I wasn't walking with Him yet!

We were transferred to Renton and rented a cabin. It was furnished except for the kitchen. An elderly neighbor gave me some kitchen utensils and 2 pans. Once again Yahweh's provision!

Yahweh knew one day I would bow the neck and the knees and He made provision for me. I did not realize the supply was from Him, but I see it in every good thing that has come my way. After all hind sight is said to be 20/20.

 

!!!

 

Did you ever notice in fiction a problem develops and when it is solved we are given the steps of the characters to solve it. But we are rarely given the background that led to the knowledge shown. I thank Yahweh that He teaches us the steps to take to avoid the problem. He also gives us the steps to take to make it right when we miss the mark.

John 17.20 Yahshua prayed for each of us!

Joh 17:1 Yahshua spoke these things; then, lifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, “Father, the hour has come. Magnify Your Son, so the Son may magnify You. 17:2 Even as You gave Him authority over all flesh, so may He give eternal life to all those You have given Him. 17:3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true Almighty, and Yahshua the Messiah, the One You sent. 17:4 I magnified You on earth by finishing the work that You have given Me to do. 17:5 Now, Father, magnify Me together with Yourself, with the honor which I had with You before the world came to be.” 17:6 “I have made Your name known to the men of this world that You gave Me. They were Yours; You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word.  17:7 Now they have come to know that everything You have given Me is from You. 17:8 The words, which You gave Me, I have given to them. They received them and truly understood that I came from You, and they believed that You sent Me. 17:9 I ask on their behalf. Not on behalf of the world do I ask, but on behalf of those You have given Me, for they are Yours. 17:10 All Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine; and I have been magnified in them. 17:11 I am no longer in the world; but they are in the world, and I am coming to You. Set-apart Father, keep them in Your name that You have given Me, so that they may be one just as We are. 17:12 While I was with them, I was keeping them in Your name that You have given Me. I guarded them, and not one of them was lost except the son of destruction, so that the Scripture would be fulfilled. 17:13 “But now I am coming to You. I say these words while I am still in the world, so that they may have My joy made full in themselves. 17:14 I have given them Your word; and the world hated them, because they are not of the world just as I am not of the world. 17:15 I am not asking that You take them out of the world, but that You keep them from the evil one. 17:16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17:17 Make them set-apart in the truth. Your word is truth. 17:18 Just as You sent Me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. 17:19 And for their sakes I make Myself set-apart, so that they also may be made set-apart in truth.” 17:20 “I pray not on behalf of these only, but also for those who believe in Me through their message, 17:21 that they all may be one. Just as You, Father, are in Me and I am in You, so also may they be one in Us, so the world may believe that You sent Me. 17:22 The honor that You have given to Me I have given to them, that they may be one just as We are one— 17:23 I in them and You in Me—that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me and loved them as You loved Me. 17:24 “Father, I also want those You have given Me to be with Me where I am, so that they may see My honor—the honor You gave Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world. 17:25 Righteous Father, the world did not know You, but I knew You; and these knew that You sent Me. 17:26 I made your Name known to them, and will continue to make it known, so that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”

[Yahweh has given honor to Yahshua and Yahshua died for every person who ever lived. He prayed for us before we were born and continues to intercede for us daily. Not because it is His job, but because He loves each of us.]

!!!

Remember! Temptations are distractions! They distract you from Yahweh's path He has set you on. As far as I can tell the flap about a “flat earth” is just that, a distraction! Those I know who are involved in it no longer search scripture to seek the proper path, the path of right-living according to Yahweh, but spend hours and $ on seeking the truth about the shape of the earth rather than the shape of their souls. Really, what difference does it make to your salvation or your daily walk? Yes we have been flooded with lies! Instead of spending your time trying to find out who to blame why not spend that time in study of Yahweh's Word and apply that to your life?

“There are none so blind they cannot see, nor so deaf they cannot hear as those that are willfully blind and deaf to truth.”

by Anon

 

!!!

It has been said, “We make time for what is really important to us.” But the truth is we do not always know what is important!

 

!!!

Just imagine yourself walking the path with Yahweh on one side and Yahshua on the other side. The sun is shinning, the air is just right and there is joy and laughter as they swing you between them. Just thinking of it my heart swells with the joy of love and acceptance.

 

!!!

My screen saver is made up of butterflies. There is one I think of as the 'snow princess.' It is almost pure white with 3 visible dots on the wings. In the picture it seems to have eyes, nose and mouth. It is easy to see why a people ignorant of Yahweh's nature might mistake this insect for a 'being' rather than a bug. Look at all the tales told our children (and we know better) about animals with plain human attributes. Are we setting them up to be deceived? Just saying, 'it is make believe' doesn't touch the 'feelings' evoked by these tales. Especially when animation is added. We also hold (at least a lot of us) to the old adage; “Where there is smoke there must be some fire.” Saying if it looks like 'something' then there must be some of the 'something' present.

“Negative words hold less power when unspoken.” by Anon

It took me most of my life to finally, fully accept that my personal choices touch others and make changes in their lives as well. Before I began this walk I insisted on my way or the highway. I know of a dozen people, over the years, who have been seriously wounded as a result. I have repented, been forgiven by Yahweh but... think of the possible consequences to others, maybe years in the future before setting your desires over the rights or consequences to others!

 

!!!

There is no thing that is without purpose! If Yahweh created it or allowed man to bring it into existence it has meaning, even the sand is used to express spiritual truths. Be mindful, careful, of your surroundings.

 

!!!

 

Not many of us look for deliberate way to sin, but do seek or secretly wish for the temporary delights it seems to offer.

Look well to where your feet tread.

Look well to where and what your hands find to do.

Look well to where and what you allow your mind to dwell on.

Look well to where your provision is and from who it comes from.

Look well that you avoid the sin of ignorance for it can be cured by willingly studying scriptures and applying it to your self!

 

!!!

When we 'fall in love' with a person or thing that Yahweh forbids we need to repent for yielding to the temptations that brought us to this point. Pray for Yahweh to show you His perspective and to help you to accept that His view is the correct view. To 'fall in love' is an emotion and it can be changed if we are willing to yield our heart to Yahweh. Admit your error and ask Yahweh for forgiveness, being willing to yield to Yahweh's wisdom and not to your emotions.

Remember, this [pain/loss] to shall pass.

 

!!!

 

For most of my life I have walked in voluntary ignorance. Early on as one who refused to look at evil, therefore refusing to see black and white, good and evil in all its shades. This in spite of the fact that Yahweh touched my heart as a child. Then when life forced me to see truth I lived in anger until, UNTIL Yahweh opened my eyes to His perspective and I was again drawn to Him in loving obedience. He has loved, protected and provided for me all my life and now He is using what I learned and saw in the world to teach of His great unending love! Praise Him!

 

!!!

I have been criticized for using my life as an example of Yahweh's will in an individual. Whose life should I use? Whose life could I know so well? Do you want your life spread out for all to see?

 

!!!

Although I know how to write a lesson in the question and answer format, which is designed to get you to agree and then add what you have not previously agreed to so you reach the destination the questioners desire. Rather I choose to present the plain scripture and leave the wooing to Yahweh. Why? Because I was in direct sales and that is exactly how we were taught to sell. Does that negate the method? No it shows how effective it is, so why not use it?

Yahweh set my feet on the path of the 'plain truths' taught in scriptures. These truths do not need any methods of the world to be understood. It is a heart matter when it comes to circumstances. If my teaching reaches just your head, and not your heart, I have shared knowledge and that is good, another can perhaps touch you heart and bring that knowledge to life. But if we reason together we bring all of our being into the study, not just our heads. And it is an all-or-nothing-at-all commitment Yahweh desires from those who would be part of His household.

 

!!!

If I was still traveling North to South in the winter I think I might rent a locker at the airport and stow my winter gear there so I do not freeze when I return North.

 

!!!

Yahshua promised He would never leave us nor forsake us. He also said the comforter could not come until He departed. I believe the Comforter we were promised is Yahshua in Spirit – that being the reason it could not be manifested while Yahshua was in a physical body – so not a 3rd personage, but another form – a spiritual form that can be everywhere and with each of us all the time.

 

!!!

Today's busyness often calls me away from preparing for tomorrows blessings from Yahweh.

 

!!!

THE TRUTH!...the ideal state is impossible without recognition of a Divine presence and obedience to a divine will.” Expositor's Bible

 

!!!

I pray everybody knows that with Yahweh you have to be all in or your all out!

 

!!!

You women will understand what I mean when I say, 'I just can't stop my mind from hopping from one thing to another’. For me it has become the time to write and sing praises to Yahweh and Yahshua! Then rest comes, such a blessing!

 

!!!

From studying scripture I have come to believe! Yahshua is Yahweh's salvation for Israel and Gabriel is Israels guardian angel. SO! If we love Yahshua we will obey His commands. If you believe it was Yahshua who spoke to Moses – then you must keep Torah to prove your love! Not as your salvation!
