Encouragement

There are those of you who are walking the lonely path with YHWH. Remember, you are a light in the midst of a world filled with darkness. You are loved and needed. The path is one of endurance and obedience mixed with faith. As our ancestors before us, we must proclaim the beauty of YHWH,
His wisdom and mercy. It is not in vain.

In His Service,

Many Ask…

We get asked this question a lot, although the information can be found on our Ministry page, we do understand not everyone can go through every page here, so hopefully this will help.

YWHW Bless.


Given to Change?

Given to Change

Jeremiah 23:25-28
I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name,
saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.

How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy lies?
yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;

Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams
which they tell every man to his neighbour,
as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal.
The prophet that hath a dream,
let him tell a dream;
and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully.
What is the chaff to the wheat? saith YHWH.

As we were born into a world that is given to change, and YHWH changes not, we must boldly proclaim His Word and His Word Only!  That which He has given mankind to hold onto.  Yet few truly hold to His Word and run to and fro with anything that appears of YHWH.  And that, my dear friends, is the warning here.  If it appears of YHWH, but is not, does that please Him or dishonor Him?  For there is much that appears pure and holy, yet is of sheer evil.  The star of David is a great example! And the cross is another great example!

We must also not forget that languages have aided dramatically in the changes we adhere to through today.  In fact, the original language was pictures.  Ancient Hebrew with its picture-letters tell the story so it is easy to remember. The original language was an amazing masterpiece of artwork to behold, yet today it gets discarded as if it didn’t mean much. Pictorial embraces the facts through visual, so the mind’s eyes can truly see the meaning and the story.  YHWH in Pictorial is a simple yet profound “picture” representing  His Hand and Arm covering and protecting His people.

Think back to when you were a young child learning.  Did not pictures tell you the story?  Anyone in the world can see a stick figure and know it is a person, or a stick drawing of a tree with branches and know it is a tree.  A bird, a cloud etc.  So why did we allow words to alter our perception?

Because… man stepped in, guided by the adversary, thus our ancestors followed.

Joshua 24:15
And if it seem evil unto you to serve YHWH,
choose you this day whom ye will serve;
whether the elohim which your fathers served that [were] on the other side of the flood,
or the elohim of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell:
but as for me and my house, we will serve YHWH.

In our house, we do not add any vowels to the Name YHWH.  For as it was engraved in Stone and found in scrolls, it was 4 characters.  From the pictorial to the Paleo Hebrew to the English alphabet YHWH.  Simple as that folks!

YHWH-Picto

So who thought it so lovely an idea to hide His Name, to make it unspeakable and turn it to nothingness?  Who altered His Name so they could be the “secret” holders?  Altering it so the true vibration of His Name could not be spoken amongst common men and women? Those whom sought to steal their way into heaven, that’s who!  They whom believed/believe they are more righteous than the average person.  Yes, we’ve all been duped to such a high degree and believe you me, this continues through today.  For the pact was made for generations.

Well, we are here to fight against these evil doers.  To proclaim the Word of YHWH to all whom will listen and heed His call.  To alter His Name in any way, shape or form is an abomination unto Him and is blasphemous!  Shall we not heed His warnings or shall we follow the footsteps of those whom made a pact to hide His Name from the world?!?  We prefer not to disrespect our Father in that aspect, nor shall we follow the doctrine of devils that have become common practice today.

One thing that is for certain, Satan is having a field day with this “Name Game” he has been leading for quite some time now. And many have fallen into the snare of it all. For if it is on the net,in a book, or a Rabbi states it, or a pastor etc, it somehow must be real!

Running with the first things the eyes see and somehow the spirit or heart said…”Yes” to, has made many stand still in their walk, rather than move forward. How many are testing all spirits when it comes to YHWH? How many are just assuming it is of YHWH? In a world filled with deceptions, is it not wise to test, as scripture states so you won’t be counted among the fools and tares? Does YHWH not know that the enemy of souls is doing all he can to make everyone bow to him and not YHWH? And does not YHWH know how many will fall into the sparkling flattery and trickery Satan has to offer? Utilizing pretty photos with scripture printed upon them…with many different Names to represent YHWH? How does one choose? How does one know? For while one seeks, Satan is also seeking to steal you away….thus presenting before you many beautiful ways of deceiving you through mans studies and findings, through fables believed to be of YHWH and changing a most beautiful Name into nothingness.

Ecclesiastes 12:12
And further, by these, my son, be admonished:
of making many books there is no end;
and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

Malachi 3:6
For I am YHWH, I change not;
therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.

At this time, many are being consumed by all the versions being utilized throughout the internet. Rather than depending upon a box with a keyboard to teach one the truth, why not go to scripture! For within Scripture, all answers are given. If one does not have scriptures with YHWH in it, but the all familiar G-d, L-RD, etc within its pages, just retrain your brain with YHWH!
(Warning: Don’t lean on the countless interpretations of how to pronounce it) YHWH will guide you and the difference will amaze you! Grab a concordance, utilize the internet for referencing, as a dictionary if you must, but study past what someone else has found and seek root words and key meanings for yourself. Let YHWH open your eyes to see HIM and allow Him to close your eyes to all the fables Satan has lay before you!

Amos 8:12
And they shall wander from sea to sea,
and from the north even to the east,
they shall run to and fro to seek the word of YHWH,
and shall not find it.

Daniel 7:25
And he shall speak great words against the most High,
and shall wear out the saints of the most High,
and think to change times and laws:
and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

YHWH consistently speaks against other elohim’ names being spoken from our lips.

1Peter 5:8
Be sober,
be vigilant;
because your adversary the devil,
as a roaring lion,
walketh about,
seeking whom he may devour:

Exodus 23:13
And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect:
and make no mention of the name of other elohim,
neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.

Leviticus 19:12
And ye shall not swear by my name falsely,
neither shalt thou PROFANE the name of thy Elohim:
I am YHWH.

Ezekiel 39:7
So will I make my holy name known
in the midst of my people Israel;
and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more:
and the heathen shall know that I am the Holy One in Israel.

Erase all you have been taught. Clean the slate and give unto YHWH what belongs to Him and stop feeding Satan. That wimpy dude just snickers at us all anyways, so…stand up, stand tall and prove him WRONG! It’s easy to do when obedient to YHWH!


Listen to what YHWH has to say!

Listening

Let YHWH speak to you!
Listen to His Words! Meditate upon these verses
and let the Spirit teach you!
For the reward is great to those who listen to YHWH
and adhere to His Words.

Jeremiah 32:27
Behold, I am YHWH,
the Elohim of all flesh:
is there any thing too hard for me?

Zechariah 13:8-9
And it shall come to pass,
that in all the land, saith YHWH,
two parts therein shall be cut off and die;
but the third shall be left therein.
And I will bring the third part through the fire,

and will refine them as silver is refined,
and will try them as gold is tried:
they shall call on my name,
and I will hear them:
I will say, It is my people:
and they shall say, YHWH is my Elohim.

Leviticus 18:21
And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech,
neither shalt thou profane the name of thy Elohim:
I am YHWH.

Isaiah 42:8
I am YHWH:
that is my name:
and my glory will I not give to another,
neither my praise to graven images.

Isaiah 43:10
Ye are my witnesses, saith YHWH,
and my servant whom I have chosen:
that ye may know and believe me,
and understand that I am he:
before me there was no El formed,
neither shall there be after me

Isaiah 44:6
Thus saith YHWH the King of Israel,
And his redeemer YHWH of hosts;
I am the first, and I am the last;
and beside me there is no elohim.

Isaiah 45:21
Tell ye, and bring them near;
yea, let them take counsel together:
who hath declared this from ancient time?
who hath told it from that time?
have not I YHWH?
and there is no Elohim else beside me;
a just El and a Saviour;
there is none besides me.

Jeremiah 1:19
And they shall fight against thee;
but they shall not prevail against thee;
for I am with thee, saith YHWH,
to deliver thee.

Jeremiah 9:24
But let him that glorieth glory in this,
that he understandeth and knoweth me,
that I am YHWH
which exercise
lovingkindness,
judgment,
and righteousness, in the earth:
for in these things I delight,
saith YHWH.

Jeremiah 15:6
Thou hast forsaken me, saith YHWH,
thou art gone backward:
therefore will I stretch out my hand against thee,
and destroy thee;
I am weary with repenting.

Jeremiah 23:30-32
Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets,
saith YHWH,
that steal my words every one from his neighbour.
Behold, I am against the prophets,
saith YHWH,
that use their tongues, and say, He saith.
Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams,
saith YHWH, and do tell them,
and cause my people to err by their lies,
and by their lightness;
yet I sent them not,
nor commanded them:
therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith YHWH.

Ezekiel 6:13
Then shall ye know that I am YHWH,
when their slain men
shall be among their idols round about their altars,
upon every high hill,
in all the tops of the mountains,
and under every green tree,
and under every thick oak,
the place where they did offer sweet savour to all their idols.

Ezekiel 11:12
And ye shall know that I am YHWH:
for ye have not walked in my statutes,
neither executed my judgments,
but have done after the manners of the heathen that are round about you.
(Tis the season right now! Who will listen to YHWH?)

Ezekiel 12:15
And they shall know that I am YHWH,
when I shall scatter them among the nations,
and disperse them in the countries.

1Corinthians 8:3
But if any man love YHWH,
the same is known of him.

James 1:12
Blessed is the man that endureth temptation:
for when he is tried,
he shall receive the crown of life,
which YHWH hath promised to them that love him

Hebrews 12:7
If ye endure chastening,
YHWH dealeth with you as with sons;
for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?

Luke 10:22
All things are delivered to me of my Father:
and no man knoweth who the Son is,
but the Father;
and who the Father is, but the Son,
and he to whom the Son will reveal him.


Following Torah?

Scroll3
Many overlook parts of the Torah that relates to the names of other elohim’s.

We are told to have no elohim in front of YHWH, Exodus 34:14. Nor to take His name in vain (H7723), Exodus 20:7. We are instructed not to utter the names of other elohim’s, Exodus 23:13. We are told if we follow after these other elohim’s we will perish, Deuteronomy 8:19. And Messiah confirmed in Matthew 15:11 that what we speak will defile us. For every idle word is recorded, Matthew 12:36. As YHWH does hear and see all, Psalm 94:9.

God: H1408 a Babylonian deity of fortune
(troop*, Isaiah 65:11-14)

Lord: H1168, H1180 a name for Ba’al
(Jeremiah 23:27, Hosea 2:16)

Yahweh (Latin Iove/Jove): G2203 Jupiter, Zeus
(Acts 14:13, Acts 19:35)

Yahuah, Yahuwah, Yehweh, Yahwah, Yihweh, IEUE,
plus many, many more:
created by men (and women)
(Matthew 24:5, Luke 21:8)

These are some examples of the false names that many use and follow after without knowledge, Hosea 4:6. The only name found in stone is YHWH, Jeremiah 6:16. Pronounced as Yahu (found in scriptural names, found on scrolls, YHW), Yahuh (YaHWH), Ywahoo (sacred Levite area).

The name of Messiah is YHWH as confirmed by at least 5 witnesses, 2Corinthians 13:1. Witness 1: Isaiah 44:6, witness 2: Jeremiah 23:6, witness 3: Matthew 28:19, witness 4: John 5:43, John 10:25, John 17:11-12, witness 5: James 1:27. For it is the only name given to man to be saved by, Acts 4:12, Psalm 116:13, Isaiah 45:21.

1Kings 18:21
And EliYah came unto all the people, and said,
How long halt ye between two opinions?
if YHWH be Elohim, follow him:
but if the Baal, then follow him.
And the people answered him not a word.

1Corinthians 10:21
Ye cannot drink the cup of YHWH,
and the cup of devils:
ye cannot be partakers of YHWH’s table,
and of the table of devils.

Matthew 7:23
And then will I profess unto them,
I never knew you:
depart from me,
ye that work iniquity (without torah).

The Rich Man & the Maid

MaidOnce upon a time there was a very rich man who lived in a very exquisite mansion.  For many years his maid, Elsie, kept up his home meticulously.  Not one day went by that he had to instruct her or ask anything of her other than simple chit chat.  She was a treasure to him.

Elsie eventually met a man and they courted for many months. Then one day Elsie approached the rich man and told him she would have to leave his home and resign for she was to be married.  Though he was very excited for her, he dreaded finding someone to replace her. No one could compare to Elsie nor the work she could do in his mind.

Many maid prospects came to his mansion.  Day after day he sought someone whom he thought would be as good as Elsie.  Weeks went by before he found someone.  A young awkward looking woman named Olivia.  She highly impressed him with her mannerism and seriousness.  The rich
man felt relieved in finding a good replacement for Elsie.

The rich man showed Olivia the mansion room by room.  When it came to his special room, he explained in great detail how to care for it, dust it and asked her to please be careful of each item in it. He stressed to leave everything as it was and just ensure it was immaculate above all other rooms.  Olivia asked why the room was so special, he grunted, “Just make sure this room is perfect!” and off he went.

Months went by and the rich man seemed quite pleased with Olivia’s work.  He only had to remind her a few times of small duties missed.  This was expected.

One day, however, Olivia had not completed laundry on time and a particular pair of pants was not cleaned nor pressed.  One the rich man had planned to wear to an affair.  This disturbed the man and he scolded Olivia for her negligence.  Olivia promised she would not allow that to happen again.

Within the next week, Olivia displayed many signs of negligence highly annoying the man to the point of wanting to fire her.  She would spend hours in his special room making it spotless while the other rooms were ignored. Though she apologized up and down and promised to do better with the other rooms throughout the mansion, each day her actions were worse.  She also began to alter the rich man’s special room.  Soon it became a beautiful sanctuary filled with vibrant flowers, new white linen curtains and new white furniture. She removed pictures from the walls and replaced them with mirrors.  She moved his books and placed candles throughout the room. This infuriated him!

Eventually the rich man felt as if he would literally kill her.  For her attitude changed and her work was horrid in his eyes.  Dust was piling up, fingerprints everywhere.  Yet that one room kept changing and was the only sparkling room in the mansion.

He was fed up!  But he also knew it would be weeks if not months before he would find another replacement.  He was so angry he went to his grandfather who was a very wise and gentle man.

“Grandfather!” He exclaimed.  “I have this maid, Olivia, who I want to kill!  Literally kill her Grandfather!!!  She was wonderful in the beginning.  Not as good as Elsie was, but still, a decent replacement, or so I thought.  She has turned into a lazy, horrible, dirty maid.  I can’t stand her! Not only that Grandfather, but she altered my favorite room.  My thinking room.  The room I meditate in.  The one I pray in.  The one room I cling to after a hard day of work! She changed the curtains so I can now see outside!  She put mirrors where my hunting photos, awards, degrees and trophies were.  Do you KNOW HOW HARD I WORKED TO EARN THOSE?  She put candles everywhere.  I am burning mad inside and I…I HATE her for what she has done!!! She does not do things my way and I can’t stand her any longer!”

His Grandfather chuckled.

“My dear boy, you want to kill an angel.”
“What?!” Exclaimed the rich man.

His Grandfather continued.  “My ignorant Grandson.  You know not when a gift is given to you.  For this is an angel in disguise.  For when you are tired from a long day, she has placed mirrors around your room to show you who you are so you may ponder and reflect. You don’t need degrees to show who you are or prove who you are, my dear boy.  Your reflection alone reveals that.  The books, my dear Grandson, she removed so you would not be distracted during prayer and deep thoughts.  She placed the candles so you can rest in the light.  She made it white so you would feel clean.  She removed any items that would distract you from your concentration and you want to kill her?  Why I’d say you are the luckiest man alive! This maid certainly loves you dear boy.” Smiling and chuckling at his Grandson’s reaction, he left the room.

The rich man was very confused.  For this is not the response he expected.

So,  he returned to his mansion in full confusion.  He went to his special room and thought upon what his Grandfather had said.  As he gazed into one of the mirrors he saw an angry man.  A pressed mouth, cheeks taught and eyes almost black with rage.  As he stared at himself he cocked his head to the right and stared deeply into his own eyes.  The angered squints became curious.  He thought to himself “Do I really appear like this? Am I really such an angry soul?”

He continued to look around the room.  He stared at the linen curtains and realized that they allowed the beauty of his garden to be seen within the walls.  Then he looked at the candles all lit and realized each one was placed in a specific spot to enhance the warmth of the room.  As he eventually sat on one of the couches, it was the most comfortable cushion he ever sat on.  He felt as if he was sitting on a cloud.  As he sat and looked around the room, tears filled his eyes.

The moral of the story is…true love comes in forms that we may not understand.  Therefore we must never assume and react upon impulse.


The Breath of YHWH

Ah the sweetness of life
The breath of YHWH….

breath

Like a soft whisper moving in the breeze
a spirit so subtle enters within the soul.
releasing waves so strong
the heart cannot help to sing a new song.


FYI…

For those who question what my husband and I believe and share.

Not Robot

We are not here to please man, entertain man or tickle ears.

We strive to please our Mighty Creator YHWH and only Him, for our walks, separately and together, have entailed some heavy and gruesome details to get to our stance.  We will not alter our ways to suit disagreements or hearsay.

Galatians 1:10
For do I now persuade men, or YHWH?
or do I seek to please men?
for if I yet pleased men,
I should not be the servant of the Messiah.

Psalm 119:24
Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counselors.


Time of Division

Psalm 53:2

Elohim looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek Elohim.

Through the years, my husband and I have watched the divisions between churches, faith, people and views become wider and wider.  People have become quite combative and down right nasty when they are defending their belief systems.  Are you aware that this is supposed to happen?

Messiah tells us in Luke what will be.  Is anyone really paying attention or are we all too focused upon human response versus the spiritual warfare being played out before us?

Arguing

Luke 12:51-57

Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:

For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.

The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.

And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.

Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?

Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?

Titus tells us that even the faithful can and have been deceived.  Causing division as well as hatred for another.

Titus 3:1-8

Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to be ready to every good work,

To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.

For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.

But after that the kindness and love of YHWH our Saviour toward man appeared,

Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Set-apart Spirit;

Which he shed on us abundantly through the Messiah our Saviour;

That being justified by his Favour, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in YHWH might be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable unto men.

It’s wonderful to be passionate.  It truly is.  During my singing days, I had a statement that I put on my keyboard.  Nothing is accomplished without passion!   However it is very saddening for me to view and hear passionate rebuking brought forth through many hateful forms.  Some examples which we have witnessed with others as well as towards ourselves come as swearing, name calling, making accusations and taking stabs due to assumptions. Very hateful behaviors indeed.  Everyone is guilty of these responses in one form or another.  Not one of us can say we haven’t done this at some point in our lifetime.  For our emotions can cause great outrage in any given situation.  Sadly great misconceptions can shew forth online.

As I love to say, when one is not in front of another, they cannot see the expression nor hear the tone of voice.  A statement can easily be interpreted incorrectly depending upon the mood of the individual reading something written to them.  For example, I could write a scripture verse such as something in Proverbs.  I will use verse 14:16 to make my point.

“A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident.” 

While one could read it with a stabbing tone, it is in fact scripture stating a fact with no underlying tone within the soul. For the recipient of this verse, however it can be misinterpreted as a poking when it is no such thing.  This is such a downfall for many.  For it is within the emotions of the reader that adds or takes away the meaning of the statement.  If the reader is highly emotional or feeling hurt, it can bring on a raging fire within.  If the reader is objective and reading only the words with no emotion, the lesson can thus be learned and growth gained.

As we talk to, listen to and observe many, this  comes to mind.  A senior in High School understands more than a 5th grader.  Yet a 5th graders wants to prove themselves smart to the senior.  So they excitedly share what they know.  If they are corrected, they can sulk, pout and can even stomp their feet and shout to be heard by the senior.  With passion they will cry out This is what I was taught!!!  The senior, after hearing the same old babble from the 5th grader chooses to move forward since the 5th grader is too focused on making their point instead of listening to the senior.  Neither of them is wrong, per say.  Each, instead, is at a different educational level than the other.  Therefore, being a 5th grader is not considered stupid or even unlearned.   It is a normal stage of development and growth.  For that 5th grader is above a 1st grader and can give the same reaction as the senior did when approached in the same manner.  Nothing wrong with that now, is there?

Truly if one seeks from the soul of ones heart, YHWH will answer while teaching.  Allowing the individual to be a student.  Lifting the veils off ones eyes that have been placed there by society.  With each lesson learned, the student graduates to the next level of understanding.  It’s all about where one is at on ones journey.   We all have heard people state things such as…“I’ve read this same verse a million times.  Then one day I had a revelation and I understood the deeper meaning.  I can’t believe I didn’t see that before!!!”  Looks like they graduated to the next level of learning if you ask me!

Yet, if one is shown something that they do not understand, it seems to become an all out war against so many teachers who have graduated from elementary school to high school…then college and beyond.  Debates can be a good thing if all are open minded enough to study each others works in depth to understand where the other is coming from.  Worse yet is ignoring someone who asks an opinion or even guidance while learning to then be cut down once they have grasped something amazing!  Closing one’s mind and slamming with immature name calling and accusations is just illogical in my eyes and downright rude.  Each person’s journey with YHWH can be utterly amazing.  And not everyone will get the same lessons.  However, many will coincide which creates witnesses.  Sadly, some witnesses that come together end up separating due to the different levels they are at.  Some gently and peacefully while others stomp their way out like the running of the bulls.

The time of division has been upon us and is growing.  Some will step away quietly, some with rage and hot tempered emotions, some will just change venues and move quickly away from others hoping not to be followed.  Ah, what fun it is during this time.

Jeremiah 4:22

For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.

Humbled

This statement here is quite deep.  As the spirit of haughtiness seems to be running rampant these days, we all are learning.  Some will get harsh lessons, some will move forward smoothly, some will fall backwards.  Some will lose everything they know while others will gain more then they can imagine. Everyday is a new beginning to hopefully climb another step towards our amazing Creator.

2 Corinthians 10:2-13

But I beseech you, that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us as if we walked according to the flesh.

For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through Elohim to the pulling down of strong holds;)

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of YHWH, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of the Messiah;

And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? If any man trust to himself that he is the Messiah’s, let him of himself think this again, that, as he is the Messiah’s, even so are we the Messiah’s.

For though I should boast somewhat more of our authority, which YHWH hath given us for edification, and not for your destruction, I should not be ashamed:

That I may not seem as if I would terrify you by letters.

 For his letters, say they, are weighty and powerful; but his bodily presence is weak, and his speech contemptible.

Let such an one think this, that, such as we are in word by letters when we are absent, such will we be also in deed when we are present.

For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.

But we will not boast of things without our measure, but according to the measure of the rule which YHWH hath distributed to us, a measure to reach even unto you.

I could never speak for YHWH for I am a mere human being.  His ways are not ours.  But I can say I imagine.  I imagine He’s watching us all amidst many whirlwinds of heart raging debates.  I’d suppose He’s shaking His head at the lot of us.  I can imagine as He’s shaking His head, He is sifting through the people.  Putting some on one side and some on another and so on.  Dividing the tares from the wheat.

And for the ministers out in the world who are facing much malice, these verses are for you all.

Ephesians 6:19-20

And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.


Women

Rebellious women

Many women today do not understand what it is to be a Woman!

Do we forget that we hold the highest title?   Mother!   We have the highest role on the planet!   We hold more power than most will admit to.   Our best role ever is to raise our children correctly.   To teach them their ways.

It appears that in today’s society, women are too focused on their careers rather than their families.   Yes, we can buy our family material items from the pay we earned, but can we buy the love and respect the woman deserves?   No, we cannot!

My Grandmother was the matriarch of our family.   A woman who raised 9 out of 11 surviving siblings.   A woman who worked in a factory during the great depression, slaving as a seamstress in a sweatshop to help support her parents. A woman who our entire family ran to when a situation came up.  No one ran to my Grandfather the way they did to my Grandmother.  She was the rock.  She was the one who could kiss a boo boo away in the middle of cooking up a lasagna made from scratch.  She could cook, clean, garden, sew, can food, knit and crochet.  She could chop wood, paint a house, reupholster the furniture. She could recite scripture at the blink of an eye.  She could stand firm and could soothe at the same time.   She was the one who could keep every family member’s issues in her personal file cabinet in her brain.  She was the mediator and a great teacher.  She knew who was naughty and held a firm tongue with them.  A strong willed Sicilian with the warmest hug that could make a toughened criminal want to curl up inside her and bawl. Yes, a woman with a great power she was!  And guess what?  She was very obedient to her parents and her husband and most of all to YHWH.

Opinionated, oh yes she was!  Obedient, even more so.  Thus, look at the reward she received.  The love and trust of all her family members.  Being regarded as the highest ranked woman of an enormous Sicilian family.  No one held her rank, no man of the family.  Just my sweet loving Grandmother who held so much within her that came out in droves of wisdom, love and laughter.  Yes indeed,  she was the boss of a huge family!

We women need to understand our roles as the feminine.  The rocks for our husbands.  The supporters of our men.  The rock for our children, their friends, our friends.  The power within a soft voice to soothe the most passionate of tears.  The power within a firm voice when pointing out a wrong.  The stance of a woman with her fists on her hips.  Oh, yes, we don’t mess with a woman in that stance.  As I love to say, mess with a bull, you get the horns.  The wrath of a woman scorned.  We don’t need to wear short skirts and pile on the make up to turn the men on.  We don’t need to prove ourselves stronger than the next.  We don’t need to do the man’s job.  Really think about it.  A man would jump in front of a bullet or a car to save his woman.  Would we do that for our man?  We think we would, but would we really do it?  Or would we freeze and watch it all happen feeling helpless?  A man would fight all elements to save someone.  Would most women? (Not saying that many wouldn’t)  We would tend to be the ones sitting and waiting by the phone while the men are out in harsh conditions.  Why?  Because the man’s job is to protect the woman and the woman’s job is to protect the children.  Neither one’s job is more important than the others in these situations.  Both are needed.  As a woman would most likely give her life to protect her child, as would a man, a man would most likely give his life not only to protect his wife, but also his mother, his child and his brother etc.  For a woman can re marry and give birth again, while a man cannot.  Hmm.  See the difference in roles here?  Yet we want to rebel and take on the job of men.  We are not the weaker vessel, we are the needed vessel.  So why do we rebel against our natural laws written within us?

We women need to realize the greatest gift we hold is that of carrying child.  Giving life from our cells to theirs.  Being a home from conception through entrance to this world.  We must realize how great a gift it is to be a house for our children.  A house with protective walls, that feeds and nourishes and prepares our defenseless wee ones for the world they must enter in.  To then be the creator of the living environment they will grow up in.  We women are busy busy creatures with much responsibility.  We are the entrusted, we are the nurturers, we are the caregivers, the secret holders, the cushions and pillows.  We are the foundation on which humanity is dependent upon.  For without the female, humanity would not increase.  When YHWH created us as a helpmeet to the man, He gave us a great amount of control.  We are not less than man, we are equal to man.  Difference being, our form of strength is different from man’s.  A wonderful balance to keep the wheels running smoothly.

Do we understand what a blessing it is to be a helpmeet?  A handmaiden? Obedience is not slavery, it is a merging of actions between man and woman so things can run efficiently.  A man must also be obedient to his wife.  Yet, society has twisted the male and female roles.  Corrupting the views of society towards liberation.  The downward spiral.  Liberation has caused a calm tongue to be a loud and rebellious one.  It has created a twisting of natural laws and ordinances.  It causes sneers from strangers upon hearing a woman ask something of her husband. (“What are you asking him for, you are independent from him.”) Taking the two become one into two stay two until the divorce proceedings begin.  Yes, I tend to become a bit opinionated as I have lived both.  The rebellious and the trying to be obedient. (Emphasis on still trying)

1 Peter 3:4
But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornameint of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of YHWH of great price.

Sadly this word has been taken as a bad term.  A 4 letter word that stirs anger within.  Ah, the deceiver of souls has again tricked humanity.  Yet, what does YHWH ask of His servants?  That we obey Him.

While we all rebel against the Word of YHWH, we really are rebelling against ourselves.  The jurisdiction of YHWH is in place for a reason.  It’s laws are a guidance for society to run smoothly.  It appears that subconsciously, humanity has been seduced into believing that being submissive to another is based on slavery and humility.  That obeying is belittling.  Quite the contrary.  Being obedient in all things creates amazing outcomes.  From pleasing a spouse, a boss, a parent to flourishing in all tasks taken on.  A wonderful quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson goes to say “Obedience alone gives the right to command.”  And a very good statement on obedience given by Jean-Jacques Rousseau reads on as “The strongest is never strong enough to be always the master, unless he transforms strength into right, and obedience into duty“.

They get it!  It is a blessing.  Yet we women have been taught that obedience to our husbands, a man, the opposite sex is somehow a weakness.  Well, what does YHWH say about this?

Jeremiah 18:10
If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.

Galations 5:7
Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?

1Peter 3:1

Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives;

WOW!  Did you read that?

If we as women would adhere to the natural laws we were given to follow, we’d realize that we are a most valued species.  As my husband likes to say, If a Mom scolds a soldier, she has more authority than his superiors.  No one has more authority over man than a Mother except for YHWH.  Therefore, if we, as women, thrive to be obedient to YHWH and to our husbands, we will see the value of obedience.  Harvesting the rewards of our fruitfulness.  Let us not be swayed by a society based on divisions.  Let us stand together in a firm stance of what a woman truly is and teach our children the value of humanity.  Male and female alike. For as many women thrive to be a Proverbs 31 woman, let it be known that if you make your husband happy, he will thrive to make you happy, thus being obedient to each other.  Being obedient to YHWH blesses your house.  I’d say being obedient is a wonderful thing…if only we can wipe off the dirt of rebellion within our lives.  Let us give wisdom to our children so they may not be swept away by the grips of a losing society.  It is in our hands women!  Let our army march forward with the sword of truth!
