Yehwah Must “Abhorreth” Many

Proverbs 6: 16-19 – “16 ¶ These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, his soul abhorreth seven:

17 The haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and the hands that shed innocent blood,

18 An heart that imagineth wicked enterprises, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and him that raiseth up contentions among brethren.”

When Placing Faith in a King, You Get What You Ask For

Long after the Israelites were led out of bondage in Egypt by Moses, under the direction of Yehwah, and wandered in the wilderness for 40 years, the offspring of Jacob still could not follow the Commandments of their Creator. They had all they ever would need. Yehwah selected one person to be the intermediary, who would ensure that the children of Israel did as they were instructed to do. But they still insisted on doing things their own way, even after years of seeing all the great wonders Yehwah did, which included the vast punishments for their direct disobedience.

Shortly after Yehwah appointed Samuel to lead the people (never a king, only the one to speak directly with God), the people insisted they wanted a king, a man leader, man’s government, like other nations, to rule over them so they could be like other nations. Samuel didn’t like the idea but prayed to Yehwah and asked him what he should do.

Essentially our Creator told Samuel to give them what they wanted. Perhaps they would learn how placing faith and confidence in the rule of man, would lead to their own destruction.

This is what Yehwah told Samuel in I Samuel Chapter 8, versus 11 – 18: 11 And he said, This shall be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: he will take your sons, and appoint them to his chariots, and to be his horsemen, and some shall run before his chariot.

12 Also he will make them his captains over thousands, and captains over fifties, and to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make instruments of war, and the things that serve for his chariots.

13 He will also take your daughters and make them Apothecaries, and Cooks, and Bakers.

14 And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your best Olive trees, and give them to his servants.

15 And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give it to his Eunuchs, and to his servants.

16 And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and the chief of your young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.

17 He will take the tenth of your sheep, and ye shall be his servants.

18 And ye shall cry out at that day, because of your king, whom ye have chosen you, and the Lord will not hear you at that day.”

Sounds about like every government of man (the kings) that is present today in the world.

We Have Brought It Unto Ourselves

*Editor’s Comment* – Recently I was asked by a man why I thought that once great men of God lived to be 600, 700 or more years old. The simple answer was “sin.” But we often cannot and will not recognize sin and it becomes easy to downplay certain sins to pass them off as all part of our progressive lifestyle, as though this would be something that our Creator agrees with. Think again. Perhaps a read through the following verses of Scripture, found at Deuteronomy Chapter 28, beginning at verse 15, (King James Version) will help to understand that “for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:

16 Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field.

17 Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store.

18 Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.

19 Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out.

20 The Lord shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.

21 The Lord shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it.

22 The Lord shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.

23 And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron.

24 The Lord shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed.

25 The Lord shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.

26 And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away.

27 The Lord will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed.

28 The Lord shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart:

29 And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee.

30 Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof.

31 Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue them.

32 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long; and there shall be no might in thine hand.

33 The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway:

34 So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.

35 The Lord shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head.

36 The Lord shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone.

37 And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the Lord shall lead thee.

38 Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather but little in; for the locust shall consume it.

39 Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress them, but shalt neither drink of the wine, nor gather the grapes; for the worms shall eat them.

40 Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy coasts, but thou shalt not anoint thyself with the oil; for thine olive shall cast his fruit.

41 Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity.

42 All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume.

43 The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.

44 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.

45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:

46 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.

47 Because thou servedst not the Lord thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things;

48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the Lord shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.

49 The Lord shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;

50 A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young:

51 And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee.

52 And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the Lord thy God hath given thee.

53 And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the Lord thy God hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee:

54 So that the man that is tender among you, and very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he shall leave:

55 So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat: because he hath nothing left him in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee in all thy gates.

56 The tender and delicate woman among you, which would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and toward her daughter,

57 And toward her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them for want of all things secretly in the siege and straitness, wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates.

58 If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, The Lord Thy God;

59 Then the Lord will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.

60 Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.

61 Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the Lord bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.

62 And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not obey the voice of the Lord thy God.

63 And it shall come to pass, that as the Lord rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the Lord will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.

64 And the Lord shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.

65 And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the Lord shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:

66 And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:

67 In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.

68 And the Lord shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.

NYC’s “Blood Red Moon”

NYCBloodMoon

A photographer captured an image, 25 miles from Manhattan, of a “blood red” moon standing behind the new One World Trade Center. (Perhaps a terrific place for the world to be reminded of God’s promise.) This photo and an article appeared in the Telegraph.

I find it of interest that it is not uncommon, when something of Biblical proportions, gets plastered in the media, that the majority of media responses seem to be either ignorance of the Bible or a misrepresentation of any Bible association as being only doom and gloom. The Telegraph refers to it as from the “doomsayers.” “Rather alarmingly, the sight of a blood moon is considered a bad omen by doomsayers, who have previously claimed it could signal the end of the world.”

Perhaps it is only those who know nothing of and have never been taught correctly about the signs that God’s Word has promised us will take place before His Second Coming, that can only see doom and “the end of the world.”

If we reference Acts the Second Chapter (1599 Geneva Bible), we see that what is taking place as being commonly referenced as Pentecost. This is the event when the disciples of Jesus gathered together, fulfilling prophecy in God’s Word that after his Son’s death and sin sacrifice, He would leave each believer with his Holy Spirit to be their guide.

Some who witnessed the work of the Holy Spirit in the men, believed them to be drunk in the early morning hours. It was Peter who used God’s Word, through the prophet Joel, to disprove the accusations the men were drunk.

But Peter standing with the eleven, [j]lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judea, and ye all that inhabit Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken unto my words.

15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, since it is but the [k]third hour of the day.

16 But this is that, which was spoken by the [l]Prophet Joel,

17 [m]And it shall be in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon [n]all [o]flesh, and your sons, and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.

18 And on my servants, and on mine handmaids I will pour out of my Spirit in those days, and they shall prophesy.

19 And I will show wonders in heaven above, and tokens in the earth beneath, blood, and fire, and the vapors of smoke.

20 The Sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come.

21 [p]And it shall be, that whosoever shall [q]call on the Name of the Lord, shall be saved.

Peter was explaining, as promised in God’s Word, that certain things would happen in “the last days.” Nowhere in this passage does God’s Word reference doomsday or anything resembling it. It’s a promise, one that should cause all believers in the True God to do as the Scripture says and take note of the “wonders in heaven above, and tokens in the earth beneath, blood, and fire, and vapors of smoke.” It is man who has translated God’s promises into something that can only be bad.

When we see a blood red moon, or the “turning of the moon into blood,” we should be happy that soon God’s promise will be fulfilled and this madness and worldly insanity will come to an end.

EARTHQUAKE? But What About the Wolves and Bunnies?

Luke 21:11 – “And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.”

The Word of God said that there would come a day, “in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.” (Luke 21:6) The Apostles wanted to know what things they could look for that might give them an indication as to when Christ would return. His answer to them was, in part, Luke 21:11.

He said that nation would rise against nation and there would be wars and rumors of wars and earthquakes in many different places in which would usher in the Second Coming of Christ. Christ said not “to be terrified,” that “these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.” (Luke 21:9) – meaning soon thereafter.

I also don’t find in God’s word that the earth will be destroyed. However, some think so. Infowars is pushing the eminent destruction of a good part of the United States “when” an eruption 2,000 times more destructive than Mt. St. Helens, blows up Yellowstone.

We have seen a dramatic spike in global seismic activity that is unlike anything that we have seen in ages, and that is why what is going on at Yellowstone is so incredibly alarming.  Geologists tell us that a full-blown eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano would have up to 2,000 times the power of the Mount St. Helens volcanic eruption of 1980, and approximately two-thirds of the country would immediately become uninhabitable.

Certainly not impossible, that’s for sure. This may be one of those things in which we should not be terrified but to understand that they first must happen, “but the end is not by and by.”

As I was reading the article and thinking about the possibility of such destruction (and certainly not terrified) I wondered of the perverted minds of those so wickedly in love with wolves and animals in general, disparaging the worth of man. Surely such minds would prefer the destruction of men over animals, so what then will become their mind set should such an event occur?

Some of these people have given their whole lives to save the wolves, save the bears, etc. Perhaps their efforts could be better channeled. Many, who see places like Yellowstone Park, a man-infiltrated exploitation of God’s natural resources, as a good thing, and others work feverishly to prohibit man’s use of God’s natural resources, should understand one thing. They may believe they can control these places and manipulate the minds of others toward perverse animal behavior but the power of The Creator surpasses all of man’s understanding.

You Can’t Fix Worldly Problems by Being Part of Worldly Problem

Part of the blindness that people of the world, including those in this country, experience is the belief that in order to correct the problems, many of which are rooted in politics, is to be a part of those politics. For those who trust in the Word of God, Yeshua tells us repeatedly to not be a part of this world, to separate ourselves from it. We are also instructed to expose the evil that exists.

If you and I were to be honest with ourselves (taking off the blinders) we can see that in our lifetime, and that of history should we decide to research it, regardless of the efforts as individuals we made to participate in the election process, nothing changes. As a matter of fact, it gets worse. This government of the world and the governments around the world remain corrupt. Most of us do, however, work very hard at convincing ourselves that our involvement and the person we voted for was better or made some changes we might like, but in reality nothing changes. It doesn’t change because the change sought for is of this world and not our Creator – Yeshua.

There is only one real change and it cannot be found by following man.

Corinthians, Chapter 6, holds the Truths of how those things which are of Christ cannot be a part of those things which are not. Verse 17, therefore tells us to: “Wherefore come out from among them, and separate yourselves, saith the Lord, and touch none unclean thing, and I will receive you.”

In the first Chapter of the Epistle of Jude, we are taught that in this world there are “mockers” of the Word of God. These have made the choice to separate themselves from Yeshua and His Holy Spirit. We are therefore told in verses 20, 21: “…edify yourselves in your most holy faith, praying in the holy Ghost. 21 And keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, unto eternal life.”

Romans 12 teaches that in order to separate ourselves from the evils of the world we must: “…fashion not yourselves like unto this world, but be ye changed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what that good, and acceptable and perfect will of God is.”

No place in His Word does he instruct his followers to abide in the world and be a part of the World. He tells us that for now we must live in this world, exposed to the evils of it, but we cannot change the world by playing by their rules.

1 John Chapter 2 speaks to us about our blindness, the darkness that keeps us from His Truth. That darkness is sin. Verses 15 – 17 tell us of the only way to escape the darkness: 15Love not this world, neither the things that are in this world. If any man love this world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in this world, (as the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life) is not of the Father, but is of this world. 17 And this world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that fulfilleth the will of God, abideth ever.”

I have written many times of the powers of darkness that affront us every day of our lives. Ephesians 6:12 says, 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, and against the worldly governors, the princes of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness, which are in the high places.”

It may not be easy to wrestle against “principalities, against powers, worldly governors, spiritual wickedness and princes of the darkness,” but there is certainty that seeking the changes we want in our life are NOT going to come by being a part of it. The evil of this world is a rigged system.

Revelations warns us of what is to be should we choose to be a part of and worship the “Whore” of “Babylon.” The Whore and the city will be destroyed. Verse 4 says: And I heard another voice from heaven say, Go out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”

As always, the choice is ours. Unlike man’s government, Yeshua forever gave us the will to choose. We can continue to be a part of the False Prophet, the Lamb that speaks like a Lion. We can pretend that if we just become more a part of man’s evil government, we can make the changes we want. But we can’t. The Truth in Yeshua is the only way to end this utter and destructive nonsense. Should we all choose God’s way, He will take care of those changes we seek.

His promise: 2 Chronicles 7:14: 14 If my people, among whom my Name is called upon, do humble themselves, and pray and seek my presence, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear in heaven and be merciful to their sin, and will heal their land.”

Continuing the proclamation that the United States of America is God’s land, while sowing the seeds of evil, will never persist. Those who make this claim are liars. We cannot serve two both God and Mammon.

The Takeaway

Ephesians 2: 8-9

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

We tend to make salvation in Christ the Savior difficult and complicated. Odd that for most people accepting a gift is quite easy and we are especially grateful for any gift and yet, for some, accepting God’s gift is seemingly impossible. God doesn’t ask us to jump through hoops, work ourselves to death, go into a small room and “confess” our sins to a man, or give $20.00 in order to ask for forgiveness. A cheerful giver never expects anything in return, neither does Christ the Savior, our Creator, Yehwah, Yeshua.

The only thing God asks us to do is accept his gift. Some think the actual gift comes later but that’s not true. His gift of salvation includes his Holy Spirit, who gives our lives meaning and helps us to discern right from wrong in our own hearts.

Some ask what can we do about the violence in the world today. Others attempt to make man-god laws. None of these things will give us true peace and happiness. Accepting God’s gift can put an end to all this misery.

Men Shall be Lovers of Their Own Selves

2 Timothy 3 King James Version (KJV)

3 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

The Foundation of Truth

What is your foundation for truth? Do you even have one? Or, do you care? Shouldn’t we all have one? I mean, how do you measure anything if you have no yard stick or barometer in which to compare it too?

Personally, I choose to make my foundation of truth God and his Word in the Bible. Regardless of what we choose are we so progressive in our nature that we, not only allow for the changing of our foundation of truth, but work very hard at making it a change that too often is rooted in the desires to better fit a narrative or a preferred lifestyle.

Historically, this action has always been. I suppose it has become man’s nature, due to the loss or focus on one foundation of truth. The Bible teaches that if we take our eyes off God and look to our guidance and salvation through man, we will become lost. God understood that man on earth would be required to find the right balance between seeking a righteous life through God, while obeying to laws of man, providing, of course, that they do not conflict. Not an easy task but one that becomes easier if we keep our eyes on a foundation of truth that doesn’t move and never changes.

In the Bible, in John 1:1 it says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” This mostly tells us that God’s Word, my foundation for truth, has always been and will always be. With that kind of consistency, it should indicate a great place to focus one’s work to compare the works of man to that of Truth.

If we study history, however, what we find is a constant changing or interpretation of this Truth into which it becomes man’s truth. Governments, churches, groups and individuals have created their own understanding of even what the Bible says in order to position themselves in power over people, control people in every facet of their lives, change government, alter the foundation of church, change laws, promote different, most always more decadent, lifestyles, justify sin/wrongs and an entire host of other aspects of life.

Where do you seek truth?
