Are You Praying The Right Way?

praying

I was never taught how to pray correctly growing up. Interestingly, I grew up in church, and I don’t remember being taught how to pray. The way I understood prayer is when I’m in need of something I will go to YAHUAH (God). Although, many verses telling us that we don’t need to ask our Father for anything because he already knows what we need. Matthew 6:8 “Be ye not, therefore, like unto them: for your Father knows what things ye need of before ye ask him.” That’s why many of us end up praying amiss and repeating vain words causing our prayers not being answered the way it should. The four questions you need to ask are When should you pray? What should you pray for? Why should you pray? How should you pray? Let’s cover the four questions with scriptures, so you get a better understanding of prayer. I’m going to focus mainly on Matthew 6:1-34. Isaiah 28: 9-10 “For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precepts; line upon line, line upon line; here a little and there a little.”

The first question was When should you pray? Ephesians 6:18 “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.” You see here in verse above that you should always be praying with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit. Meaning, you should constantly be praying. Not when you remember, when you need something or when you are in church. You should be in prayer every minute because your life depends on it. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of YAHUAH (God) in YAHUSHA HAMASHIACH (Jesus Christ) concerning you.” Paul is saying to pray without ceasing meaning constantly. When you’re awake, eating, walking, working before you sleep, and when you’re sitting. You get the picture. Romans 12:12 “Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer.” These verses are to show you that you are to pray continually without ceasing. Not when it’s convenient for you or when you feel like it.

The second question is What should you pray for? For start Matthew 6:8 “Be ye not, therefore, like unto them: for your Father knows what things ye need of before ye ask him.” This verse already telling you that you don’t need to pray for things because he already knows what you need before you ask him. What things is it talking about? What is it that the majority of us pray on a daily basis to have? Material things such as job, wealth, home, children, wife, husband, car that we desire to have etc. Matthew 6:19 “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal.” All of this material stuff that I mentioned are treasures on earth that all of us seeking for and asking in our daily prayer. Believe it or not, thieves have access to all of these things. Matthew 6:20 ” But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal.” Treasures in heaven are what you need to pray for in your daily prayer. what are the treasures of heaven that thieves can’t steal? YAHUAH’s Commandments, Law, and Statutes when it’s written on the table of your heart no thieves, no moth or rust will corrupt.

Psalms 19:7-11″ The law of the YAHUAH is perfect, converting the soul. The statutes of the YAHUAH are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of YAHUAH are right, giving joy to the heart. The commandment of the YAHUAH is radiant, giving light to the eyes. The fear of the YAHUAH is pure, enduring forever. The decrees of the YAHUAH are firm, and all of them are righteous. They are more precious than gold than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey than honey from the honeycomb. By them your servant is warned; in keeping them there is a great reward.” In your daily prayer, you should be asking YAHUAH to teach you his Law, Statutes, Commandments, to do His will, to be obedient, and to Fear Him. Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of YAHUAH (God), and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.” Therefore, when you seek YAHUAH’s Law, Statutes, and Commandments you will have everything that you need which is the basic necessity of life to survive. Such as food, water, shelter, and clothing. All of the other stuff you do not need because when you die you will take nothing with you. Ecclesiastes 5:15 “Everyone comes naked from their mother’s womb, and as everyone comes, so they depart. They take nothing from their toil that they can carry in their hands.”(Other references Job 1:21, 1 Timothy 6:7, Genesis 3:19). Ask yourself this if wealth was all you need why are the Hollywood stars committing suicide? addicted to drugs? Why are they so miserable when they seem to have it all?

The third question is Why should you pray? First, is to have a personal relationship with the Father. Ephesians 6:12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” These are the reason why you should be praying without ceasing. People, spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms, powers of this dark world, all of them are real. Get this; you cannot fight these things naturally. The only way for you to win over your struggles is through prayer, keeping YAHUAH’s law, statutes, and commandments. You should pray so you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes as it states in Ephesians 6:11 “Put on the full armor of YAHUAH, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” His armor is the word, his law, commandments, and statutes. Luke 21:36 “Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.” These are the reason you should pray.

The fourth question is How should you pray? Like I mentioned before, in the beginning, many of us don’t know how to pray. We all have the instructions available to us in the Bible. However, we don’t bother to read the scriptures like we are supposed to read them to get understanding. It’s not the pastor’s fault if any of us go to hell. It’s our fault because we decided not to read the instructions in the Bible. We love the Matrix so much that we purchase our front seat ticket straight to hell. Listen, we choose to drive our car to a congregation every Sunday to listen to someone reading the very same scriptures that you could have read at home. The difference with most pastors is they tell you what they think not what the word says. The question remains how you should pray? Well, the first step of praying is in Matthew 6:6 ” But you, when you pray, enter into your closet, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father which in secret; and your Father which see in secret shall reward you openly.” Some of us do the opposite of it. Let see how not to start your prayer in Matthew 6:5 “And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.” Some of us do it all the time trying to show off, and all we do is repeating a bunch of gibberish. No one needs to hear what you’re saying because you’re not talking to anyone but your Father. It should be a private conversation between you and your Father in heaven. The second step of praying is in Psalms 100:1-2 “Make a joyful noise unto YAHUAH, all ye lands. Serve YAHUAH with gladness: come before his presence with singing.” Once you shut your door, you start making a joyful noise unto Him singing hymns. You start worshiping him, giving thanks and praising His name. The third step of praying in Matthew 6:9 “After this manner there pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom and the power, and the glory, forever. Halleluyah!”

After you shut your door, come before his presence with singing than you start praying still giving the honor. Asking for His will to be done, asking for forgiveness because you know that we all fall short daily, and make sure before you come before him that you have fogginess in your heart. Meaning, you forgive others who offend you. Ask Him not to let temptation overcome you and deliver you from all wickedness. In closing your prayer give Him glory. Here is an example of how you should not pray in Luke 18: 11-12 “The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, YAHUAH, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortionist, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week; I give tithes of all that I possess.” Believe it or not, this is how some of us pray, and that’s a big no, no. It is not that difficult people to read the word for yourself. All it takes is a willing Spirit. Psalms 51:12 “Restore to me the joy of your salvation and sustain me with a willing spirit.” You want answers to all of your problems and live eternally pray without ceasing, get in the word, keep YAHUAH’s law, statutes, and commandments. You want to know how to pray correctly use the scriptures in Matthew 6:1-34 from this day forward. This chapter has everything you need to know about praying.

Ecclesiastes 12:13 -14 “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear Yah, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For Yah shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”

Examine Your Walk In The Most High

magnifying-glass

2 Corinthians 13:5 “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye, not your own selves, how that YAHUSHA HAMASHIACH (Whom they called Jesus Christ) is in you, except ye be reprobates?” It is critical to examine yourself daily because we are easily distracted by others behavior. Once you start focusing or paying more attention to your brothers or sisters sins, the next thing you know you are starting to become puff up. Then you are starting comparing your walk with theirs. You are now finding faults and commenting on everything they are doing wrong. You are becoming critical of everything that your brothers or sisters are doing and sometimes rejoicing that you’re not like them. Forgetting what YAHUSHA said in Luke 6:41 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eyes and pay not attention to the plank in your own eye?” All of the sudden you become self-righteous and feel that you’re better than everyone else. You become so arrogant and boasting yourselves causing you to sin and forgetting we all fall short of YAH’s glory each day. Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of YAHUAH.”

Luke 18:11-14 “Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, YAHUAH, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortionist, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, YAHUAH be merciful to me a sinner.” What happened is the Pharisee was too busy looking at other people sins rather than his own. He was so busy keeping score of what he’s done instead of being humbled. When you have this kind of attitude like the Pharisee exalting yourself YAH will abase you. Some of us found ourselves behaving like the Pharisee and don’t even realize it. This is a dangerous zone to find yourself. I was once like the Pharisee twenty years ago. I used to feel like I was better than people who weren’t Christians or in the body of Christ. I used to pray telling YAH (God) that I paid my tithes, I’m in church more than three times a week, I was involved in church as if YAH didn’t know. I didn’t see the arrogance in my prayer. I couldn’t see how disgusting my attitudes were and yes, YAH (God), abase me. I had to eat few humble pies until my eyes were opened. I’m still learning to be humbled. I’m still learning to examine myself daily because it is easy to become distracted. I’m still learning how to forgive so that I can receive forgiveness. Believe me, I’ve read the scriptures but it wasn’t clicking. YAHUAH had to open my eyes so I could see how sick I was spiritually. I’m not there yet because it is a learning process.

With all that said,  is it easy to examine ourselves daily? No, because it’s a daily struggle with the flesh. You are more likely to see your brothers or sisters sins than your own. It is easier to talk about someone else wrongdoing than your own wrongdoing. It is easier to put someone else sins on full blast than to put all the skeletons in your closets out.  It is easy to see the speck in your brother’s eye than to see the beam sticking out your eye. You are more likely to find ways to justify your sins but not your brothers or sisters. Some of us read the verses daily, but we don’t take heed of them. If anything we should be more critical of our own walk with YAH than anyone else should. Because at the end of the day guess who will be giving account for your soul when you give your last breath? It’s you, not your mother, father, pastor, brothers or sisters. Romans 14:12 “So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to YAHUAH.” You can’t examine yourself if you’re so busy comparing your walk with other people. When you start comparing that’s self-edifying. Your job is to evaluate the fruits you’re producing. You should be asking yourself daily what type of fruits you’re producing? Is it the fruit of Spirit or fruit of darkness the flesh? Are you carefully judging yourself with a magnifying glass? Matthew 7: 1-3 “Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eyes?” Corinthians 11:30-32 “For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judge. But when we are judged, we are chastened of YAHUAH, that we should not be condemned with the world.” Do you see this? To retract verse 30, it says that many are weak and sickly among you and many are asleep. Another thing you need to understand is that not all of us are moving at the same pace in YAH (God). Like the verse says many are weak and sickly spiritually and many are still asleep. Therefore, your walk with YAHUAH and the level of understanding that you have will be different from others because we are not all at the same level.

Again, you should worry about your walk and how you’re living before YAHUAH because salvation is personal. Your job is to make sure that you are producing good fruit of repentance. Matthew 7:19-20 “Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits, ye shall know them.” When you examine yourself daily, you will not fall into the devil’s trap except ye be reprobate. What is reprobate? A person that is unprincipled, immoral, wicked, or unable to repent. If you find yourself at this stage, you’re hopeless. That’s why we all need to pray daily like the publican in Luke 18:13. You have to acknowledge that you’re a sinner and need a savior. Galatians 5:16-20 talks about the fruit of the Spirit and the works of the flesh. You know the two are contrary to one to the other. The works of the flesh are adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, reveling, and they which do such will not inherit the kingdom of YAHUAH.” The reason some of us will miss the mark is that we are too busy worrying about what everyone else is doing. Matthew 7:23 “And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

Ecclesiastes 12:13 -14 “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear Yah, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For Yah shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”

Is Your Mouth An Open Sepulchre?

empty-tomb

Romans 3:13-18 “Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: whose mouth is full of  cursing and bitterness: their feet are swift to shed blood: destruction and misery are in their ways: and the way of peace have they not known: there is no fear of YAHUAH (God) before their eyes.” What a powerful verse? How many of us use our mouth for deceit, dishonesty, trickery, and cheating? How many of us full of bitterness whether from the past or present? Some of us are in denial not acknowledging the fact that these things are still hidden in our heart. It is a daily battle. Many of us say that we don’t have any bitterness in our heart that we love everyone. Do we? Or some may say that I’m an honest person, I don’t cheat or use trickery. Do you? Ask yourself this, if YAHUAH (God) was to play a recording of your daily life conversation what would he hear? Would he hear uplifting words, praises, you speaking life into people? Or would it be deceit, bitterness, anger, hatred, venomous poison, gossip, or condemning others? What are you using your mouth for to curse or to bless? You may not be aware that your tongue is one of the greatest weapons that you have. Your tongue is also your greatest enemy. You are not only able to destroy others but yourself as well.

Proverbs 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” What this verse is saying is that whatever seeds that you sow with your tongue whether it be good or evil you will eat the fruit of it. Therefore, you who loves to speak without a guard over your tongue will eat its fruit. Another word, if you sow dishonesty, bitterness, hatred, and division among others, your tree will grow just that, and yes, you will eat the fruits. Galatians 6:7-8 “Be not deceived; YAH (God) is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption, but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” Here is our biggest issue in life is that we have too many distractions surrounding us. With that said, we have to set ourselves apart from all of the distractions around and study the word. I don’t mean reading one verse here and there because it will not cut it. You need to study as it says in 2 Timothy 2:15 “Study to shew thyself approved unto YAHUAH, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” When it says, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed is that you will not sin against our Abba YAH. You will not have deadly poison coming out of your mouth, bitterness, hatred, and you will not provoke others, gossip, speak evil of others, you will not destroy someone’s character for your gain, being dishonest to others, etc. Ephesians 6: 10-18 but in verse 11-12 “Put on the full armor of YAHUAH, so that you can take your stand against the devils’ schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

Do you hear this that you are not fighting against flesh and blood? What causes someone to speak falsely against someone else? What causes someone to hate another without cause? Have you ever woke in the morning full of happiness and all of the sudden you became so angry with everyone for no apparent reason? You just snapped at anyone who dares talk to you with mean words. Or something that someone did to you years ago starts replaying in your head and you suddenly become angry. And YAH (God) forbid that person happens to rub you the wrong way. You will explode like an atomic bomb shredding that person to pieces. This is where the importance of you studying the word of YAHUAH. This is what the word will protect you from when you know the word.  Now, when the word is in you in moments like I explained above when the spirit of hatred, false witness, anger come at you the word will remind you to forgive those who trespass against you that’s Matthew 6:12. The word will tell you to do unto others like you want to be done unto you Matthew 7:12. The word will remind you to love your neighbor as you love yourself Mark 12:31. Let’s take a look at Ephesians 4:29 “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”

To go back to the question is your mouth an open sepulchre? First, ask yourself what’s in open sepulchre? Have you ever been to the cemetery? It’s not a place of happiness but mourning and it’s frightening. Better yet, have you ever seen an open tomb with the decaying decease still in it? Not a great scene. Therefore, I say this just to paint a picture of when it says your mouth an open sepulchre is telling you that the words that are coming out of your mouth are death and destruction. Proverbs 4:23-24 “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Keep your mouth free of perversity; keep corrupt talk far from your lips.” There are many more verses I can show you to see how dangerous the tongue is. Proverbs 18:6-8 “A fool’s mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul. The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they down into the innermost parts of the belly.” That’s why it is imperative that we keep his commandments and know them. When you know the word is will be a lamp for your feet as David said in Psalms 119:105 “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” The word is wisdom you will know when to speak and when to stay silent. You will choose your words wisely when you speak. The word can’t be a lamp for your feet if you don’t know it and keep it in your heart? What does the Bible say to do in Deuteronomy 11:18 “Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.” 

I mean, I can go on and on with many verses, but unless you have the fear of YAHUAH, all of these is just rambling words to you. Proverbs 9: 10 ‘The fear of YAHUAH is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the Holy is understanding.” I want to remind you that you need to pray daily because Satan is out to get you whether you want to believe it not. He will use your weakness to destroy you. Psalms 141:3-4 “Set a watch, O YAHUAH, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips. Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practice wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.” That should be our daily prayer. I’m going to close, and I pray that YAHUAH gives you wisdom and understand.

Ecclesiastes 12:13 -14 “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear Yah, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For Yah shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”

Will The Gentiles Get Cut Off?

World-War-3 gentiles cut off

I know many of you are probably looking shocked reading that Gentiles will be cut off. I’m sure you might be scratching your head saying that Yahusha (whom they called Jesus) already died for our sins how it can be? You may argue that Gentiles are under grace that it was promised once a person believes he or she will be saved. It is in the scriptures that it can’t be reversed. I will say that you’re right about that, but it is also in the scriptures as well that those who don’t keep YAHUAH’s (God) commandments will be judged. May I remind you that YAHUAH (God) cut off his chosen people for disobeying his commandments. So, if He cuts off his chosen one, you, Gentiles who were gaffed in will also be cut off if you don’t keep His commandments. Romans 2: 11″For there is no respect of persons with YAH (God).” If you don’t give or care to get out of the Matrix, I suggest you take the blue pill. But if you want to know how not to get cut off and want out of the Matrix take to red pill and see how deep the rabbit hole goes. Here we go!

Romans 11:11-24 (read it) but in verse 11 “Again I ask: Did they stumble so as to fall beyond recovery? Not at all! Rather, because of their transgression, salvation has come to the Gentiles to make Israel envious.” What Paul was saying hadn’t the children of Israel (YISRA’EL) transgressed against YAHUAH salvation wouldn’t have come to the Gentiles. So, Paul had to remind the Gentiles not boast themselves against the natural branches because their stumbled is not beyond recovery. First, you must know who the Gentiles are. Most importantly, who are the Israelites (YISRA’E’LIY), the chosen of YAH (God)? The Gentiles are anyone who is not from the bloodline of YA’AQOV (Jacob). If you’re not from the descendant of the twelve sons of  YA’AQOV (Jacob) you are a Gentile. Therefore, being born in Israel or a convert doesn’t make you part of the bloodline. If you have been reading the Bible with the understanding, you will know that the children of Israel (YISRA’EL) left the land of Israel. Matthew 24:15-16 “When ye, therefore, shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand,) then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains.” Meaning, the children of Israel (YISRA’EL) are not in their homeland currently. If you do your research, you will see how they were scattered into the four corners of the earth. Deuteronomy 28: 68 “And YAHUAH (God) 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.”

As a result, the children of Israel (YISRA’EL) are currently living in the land of their modern captivity day Egypt. Meaning, they are still under the curse of Deuteronomy 28 until YAHUSHA (whom they called Jesus) come back for them to bring them back to their promised land. Ezekiel 37:21-28 but in verse 21 “And say unto them, thus says ADONAI YAHUAH; behold, I will take the children of Yisra’el (Israel) from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will father them on every side, and bring them into their own land. (Another reference Isaiah 11:11-12)” With all that said, Gentiles have been ruling the world for the past 400 years because of Israel stumbled. Now, since Gentiles took over what have they been doing? Have they kept YAHUAH’s commandments, law, and statute? What was their assignment when salvation comes to them or should I say grafted in? Romans 11:22 “Behold therefore the goodness and severity of YAHUAH: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if though continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.” So, Gentiles were supposed to care for the children of Israel (YISRA’EL)? Have they done that? No, history proved they have not. If anything, Gentiles boast against the natural branches. Gentiles were supposed to preach the word authentically to the children of Israel (YISRA’EL) who stumbled. Have Gentiles done so? No, they preach lies, they bring Pagans worship into the church, and they add and remove from YAHUAH’s (God) commandments. Consequently, since they don’t continue in his goodness, they will be cut off.

Many Gentiles think because they are saved by grace can use it has a cover up to do what they please like not keeping commandments and keep sinning. Romans 6:1-2 “What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? YAH forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?” YAHUAH warned Israel in Deuteronomy 28 that if they disobey his commandments and turn to idols, these things will happen. But they didn’t listen and for that reason, the past 400 years has been nothing but hell for the Israelites. Gentiles you have been weighed, you have been measured, and now found wanting. That’s why Paul said take heed that you Gentiles also will be cut off for disobeying the commandments. Isaiah 66:3-4 “He that killed an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificed a lamb, as if he cut off a dog’s neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine’s blood; he that burneth incense as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations. I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.”

Many Gentiles are as stick neck as the Israelites were and instead of repenting they’ve gotten deeper into darkness and wickedness. They won’t come out of Christianity. Instead, they defend their behavior. They enjoy Sunday’s doctrines because it tickles their ear. The teaching of false doctrines has become an epidemic in Christianity. The mother of all church has everyone worshiping a false Christ or the Sun god. Pastors are telling people the law is done away with and do all kind of abominable deeds. Turning the church into a business robbing the people of their tithing doctrine. It has gotten so bad that you can’t tell the difference between Christians and heathens. Homosexual has taken over the church, and some are pastoring the church. Isaiah 5: 20 “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Judgment is coming to Gentiles. Zephaniah 3:6-8 “I have cut off the nations: their towers are desolate; I made their streets waste, that none passeth by: their cities are destroyed, so that there is no man, that there is none inhabitant. I said, surely, thou wilt fear me, thou wilt receive instruction; so their dwelling should not be cut off, howsoever I punished them: but they rose early, and corrupted all their doings. Therefore wait ye upon me, saith YAHUAH (Lord), until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.”

Here is what you need to understand, YAHUAH (God) doesn’t punish Gentiles right away like he punishes the children of Israel (YISRA’EL). Scriptures prove the minute the children of Israel (YISRA’EL) turned to idols and forsaken the commandments they get punish right away. Read the scriptures and see how many times the Israelites have gone into captivity because of disobedience. The children of Israel have had their fair share of punishments and still under the curse of Deuteronomy 28 until YAHUSHA (whom they called Jesus) comes to judge the world. But as for Gentiles, YAHUAH (God) waits for their bucket to get full and believe me the Gentiles bucket is full and it is pouring out. Joel 3:1-15 but in verse 1-2 “For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah (YAHUDAH) and Jerusalem  (YERUSHALAYIM), and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel (YISRA’EL), whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.”

If you read in verses 6-8 “The children also of Judah, and the children of Jerusalem have ye sold unto the Grecians, that ye might remove them far from their border. Behold, I will raise them out of the place whither ye have sold them, and will return your recompense upon your own head: and I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the children of Judah, and they shall sell them to the Sabeans, to a people far off: for YAHUAH hath spoken it.” This is what YAHUAH said in verse 9-12 “Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. Assemble yourselves, and come all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O YAHUAH. Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about.”

Where else it talks about the judgment that’s coming for the Gentiles in Jeremiah 51:19-25 but in verses 24-25 “And I will render unto Babylon and to all the inhabitants of Chaldea all their evil that they have done in Zion in your sight, saith YAHUAH. Behold, I am against thee, O destroying mountain, saith YAHUAH, which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out my hand upon thee, and roll thee down from the rocks, and will make thee a burnt mountain.” If you think for a second that Gentiles will not get cut off for their wickedness, think again. That’s why you must read the Bible for yourself and get out of Christianity. Get out of the Matrix because you will be judged if you still partake in their wickedness. Micah 5:5 “And I will execute vengeance in anger and fury upon the heathen, such as they have not heard.” Look, this is not a joke people and takes heed to the word. You do not want to get caught up unprepared for what’s coming. Psalms 110:6 “He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries.” So, don’t think for a second that Gentiles will be spare if they don’t keep his commandment, law, and statutes. Look around you, Christianity is not there to save you. If you examine the Christian doctrines, they are teaching you lies. They are keeping you in darkness, and you are unknowingly worshiping the Pagans gods. Hosea 4:6 “My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your ELOHIYM, I also will ignore your children.” 

Ezekiel 39:1-25, you have to read the whole chapter. You’re probably asking is it all the Gentiles that will be judged? The answer is no.  Proverbs 13:13 “Whoso despises the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.” Every one of us must keep the commandments whether you are Gentiles or descendant of Jacob (YA’AQOV) the Israelite (YISRA’E’LIY). Ecclesiastes 12:13 -14 “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear Yah, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For Yah shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”

Israel served their punishment, and now it’s the Gentiles turn to get cut off. YAHUSHA (whom they called Jesus) is coming for a war, and those who don’t repent will partake in his wrath.

With this note I say Shalem!

Who Is The Antichrist (Antimashiach)?

antichrist-mystery

For years I’ve heard about the antichrist (Antimashiach), but I never understood what it means. My pastor used to say that on the last day the antichrist will come to persecute us Christians and kill many of us. Nonetheless, all I knew was they would torture us Christians, and I didn’t have a clear understanding of who they were. If my memory serves me well at one point, he did say it was the Catholic church. But it didn’t make any sense for the Catholic church to persecute Christians because they are Christians themselves. I know, you’re probably saying how could I not know that the Antichrist is a person or force seen as opposing Christ or the Christian Church? In some Christian teachings, a personal opponent of Christ expected to appear before the end of the world. Yes, you’re right if you’re looking for the definition from Google. Isaiah 28:9-10 “Whom shall he teach knowledge? And whom shall he make to understand doctrine? Them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little.”

I need you to do something for me. Open your heart and put religion to the side for this one moment and pay attention as you read along. Revelation 14:8 “And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication?” Now, let’s us go to the Bible to identify who the Antichrist is. 1 John 2:22 “Who is a liar but he that denies that YAHUSHA (Jesus) is HAMASHIACH (Christ)? He is Antimashiach (Antichrist) that denies the Father and the Son.” Here John is saying who is a liar but he that denies that YAHUSHA is HAMASHIACH. The question is how can you deny him? The answer is simply this you can deny Him and the Father by not abiding in Him and keeping his commandments. John 15:4 “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. (see also 1 John 2:24) In John 14: 15 “If you love me, you will keep My commandments.” Also in John 10:30 “I and the Father are one.” I reference all of these verses so you can identify how you can become the Antichrist unknowingly.

Like I always reference that I grew up in church, but it wasn’t until last year I found out that I was one of the Antichrist (Antimashiach) because I did not abide in Him. I opposed everything YAHUSHA stood for which made me an enemy of Yah (God) unknowingly. What the verse says in Matthew 15:14 “Leave them; they are blind guides. If the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.” I was in the misleading pit of Christianity for years. Their doctrines were driven me away from the Father. One thing we must understand is that we can either be for Him or be the antichrist. So, you get the understand clearly, let’s look up the definition of Anti: is to oppose; against. Opposed to a particular policy, activity, or idea. Therefore, to be an Antichrist means that you opposed to the commandments, law, and statues of the highest. What leads a person to become the Antichrist? What leads a person not to abide by the Father and the Son? Matthew 24:24 “For there shall arise false Christ (Mashiach), and false prophets and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that; if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect” (see also Mark 13:22-23). The false prophets will do what, deceive you and even the very elect. Which means that if the false prophets are teaching you things that aren’t true how can you abide in the Father and the Son? How can you keep His commandments if you are taught otherwise? Do you see it? 2 Timothy 4:3 “For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.” Christianity is a cesspool for false doctrines. Christianity teaches doctrines that opposed YAHUAH’s (God) commandments, law, and statues. Christianity leans more toward the Pagans Gods, the Sun God to be precise.

2 Peter 2: 1-2 “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying YAHUAH (God) that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.”

You may argue that it’s not true. Christianity is the true church of God and they couldn’t possibly be the Antichrist (Antimashiach)? Okay, let’s go over some of their teachings and holidays observance: Let’s start with Sunday day worship. I need you to do a research on the days of the week especially Sunday and see who you are worshiping on Sundays. According to Exodus 20:8-11 The most high instructions for the Sabbath day to be observed. Aside, of the 7th days Adventist I know who observes it, how many other Christian churches observed the Sabbath? Exodus 20:3-5 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. I need you to research the name Jesus Christ and see the origin behind the name. Our Messiah was Hebrew and Jesus Christ was not it and then read Revelation 1:12-18 but the important verse is 14-15 (the description doesn’t match the current Jesus Christ we all grew up to know). Catholic Church the mother of all churches worship all kind of Saints that’s not scriptural. Easter Sunday, I did a blog on it, but I need you to research it for yourself and see who you are commemorating on that day the queen of heaven who is Baal’s (Satan) wife. The Cross is a Pagan worship. The Messiah was not crucified on the cross that we see in every churches around the world. Look up the origin of the cross and see for yourself’; I did a blog on that as well. Thanksgiving, Christmas, Halloween, Valentines etc. all Pagans holidays that most Churches observe research it. The Rapture (manmade doctrine) I did a blog on that as well, but research the origins. Many pastors telling their congregations that the law is done away with that they are cover under grace. When you read the scriptures it says otherwise. Being under grace doesn’t mean you forsake the commandments, laws, and statues. Romans 6:1-23 Paul explained that the reason you’re under grace is because when you receive water baptism you were baptized into YAHUSHA HAMASHIACH (Who they called Jesus Christ) death: verse 4-“Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as HAMASHIACH (Christ) was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” Paul wasn’t telling anyone that they shouldn’t keep the most high’s commandments. Paul kept the commandments see my blog “Was Paul Against the Law.” I mean this is just a few of the false teachings going on in many Churches. It has become a circus with all king of abominations. Now, you find some pastors who accept the homosexual lifestyle and so on.

2 Timothy 3:1-5 but in verse 4-5: “Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of Yah (God). having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”

1 John 2:15 “Do not love the world or anything in the world, neither the things that are in the world. if any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” (James 4:4 ye who loves the world is an enemy go Yah (God). Are you understanding what Antichrist (Antimashiach) is now? Listen, those who abide in the Father and the Son and keep his commandments will be hated and persecuted regardless because of his name’s sake. YAHUSHA prophesied that in Matthew 10:22 “You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved,” (See Matthew 5:11). Luke 21:12 “But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake.” There is no way out of it because it will happen. However, the Antichrist (Antimashiach) are those who are doing the opposite of the word. Christianity doctrines are so strong and it will take the most high to get you out of it. If you were waiting for the Antichrist to come now you know that it’s been here all along in Christianity. Jeremiah 23:16 “Thus saith YAHUAH TSEVA’OTH (Lord of Host), Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of YAHUAH.”

Revelation 18:4 “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and YAHUAH (God) hath remembered her iniquities.”

Ecclesiastes 12:13 – “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear Yah, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For Yah shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”

Psalms 139

valley-of-flowers-weekend-getaway

For the director of music. Of David. A Psalm.

  1. O YAHUAH, you have searched me, and known me.
  2. You know my downsitting and my uprising, you understand my thought afar off.
  3. You compass my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways.
  4. For there is no a word in my tongue, but, lo, O YAHUAH, you know it altogether.
  5. You have beset me behind and before, and laid your hand upon me.
  6. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.
  7. Whither shall I go from your RUACH (Spirit)? or whither shall I flee from your presence:
  8. If I ascend up into heaven, you are there: if I make my bed in She’ol, behold, you are there.
  9. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
  10. Even there shall your hand lead me, and your right hand shall hold me.
  11. If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.
  12. Yea, the darkness hides not from you; but the night shines as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to you.
  13. For you have possessed my mind: you have covered me in my mother’s womb.
  14. I will praise you; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are your works; and that my soul knows right well.
  15. My substance was not hid from you, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
  16. Your eyes did see my substance, yet being imperfect; and in your cepher (book) all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.
  17. How precious also are your thoughts unto me, O EL! how great is the sum of them!
  18. If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with you.
  19. Surely you will slay the wicked, O ELOAH: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.
  20. For they speak against you wickedly, and your enemies take your name in vain.
  21. Do not I have them, O YAHUAH, that hate you? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against you? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against you?
  22. I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them my enemies.
  23. Search me, O EL, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
  24. And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

What Converts You?

what converts you

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From the Christians point of view to be converted or to accept Yahusha Hamashiach (whom they called Jesus Christ) a person must go to the front of the altar so the pastor can pray over him or her and he or she must repeat the sinner’s prayer. The congregation would welcome that individual to the Kingdom of Yahuah (God). Some churches even provide that person with a Bible. Some you have to become a member, and some don’t require you to become a member. The congregation or pastor will encourage that person to continue to attend church and get involved in church. Some pastors even go further and tell that person after they accept him if they were to die that night they would go to heaven. As someone who grew up in the church, I don’t recall it being done any other way. Revelation 12:9 “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceived the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him?”

Note: for those of you who don’t have the Cepher Bible I highly recommend that you buy the Apocrypha book because it has some of the missing books that are not in your regular Bible.

Now, I’m going to show you the Bible way how to be converted. I need you for one minute to focus on me. So, the question is what converts a person? Or how does person Accept Yahusha Hamashiach (Jesus Christ)? Matthew 3:2 “And saying, Repent ye: for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Was John the Baptist telling the people to come so he could pray and for them to repeat the sinner’s prayer? What does this verse mean to you? What does it mean to repent? Let’s go to Acts 3:19 “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of YAHUAH (God).” Paul says here to repent and be converted that your sins may be blotted out. Will the sinner’s prayer blot out your sins? Think about it for a minute.

How to repent and be converted let’s go to Ecclesiasticus 19:18-19 “The fear of Yahuah is the first step to be accepted of him, and wisdom obtains his love. The knowledge of the commandments of YAHUAH is the doctrine of life: and they that do things that please him shall receive the fruit of the tree of Immortality.” Wait a minute, the fear of Yahuah is the first step to be accepted of him. Another word, it’s not repeating the sinner’s prayer. Do you see the difference? Going to the altar to have a pastor pray over you and repeat the sinner’s prayer is not part of the process. 1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of YAHUAH (God): because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” We need to have the spirit of discernment because without it will be difficult to see the difference between the truth and lie. Real or the Matrix.

The idea of going to the altar and repeat the sinner’s prayer is not in the Bible. It is baseless and manmade doctrine. What you should have been taught is to fear YAHUAH (God) and keep his Commandments. Now, the reason it’s not explained to you is that most of the pastors don’t have the fear for YAHUAH or keeping his commandments. Because had it was the case pastors wouldn’t tell you the law is done away with; they would observe the Sabbath, they wouldn’t celebrate Pagans holidays like Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Valentines, Halloween, and so on. The definition of Convert: Cause to change in form, character, or function. Explain to me how you say that you are converted, and you’re still worshiping the Pagans’ god? How are you still part of the world and you say you repented? What did you repent or converted from? James 4:4 “You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against YAHUAH (God)? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of YAHUAH.”

What converts a person? Let’s go to Psalms 19:7 “The law of YAHUAH is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of YAHUAH is sure making wise the simple.” So, what converts you is not the sinner’s prayer, but it is the law of YAHUAH. As it says in Ecclesiasticus 19 the process to be converted first, you must have fear for YAHUAH than you have to keep his law, the commandments. His commandment is what changing you into becoming that new creature. 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Hamashiach (Christ), he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” They that do things that please him shall receive the fruit of the tree of Immortality. How do you please him is by keeping his commandments. Romans 7: 12- “Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.”

Let see some of the laws in Romans 8:9 “For this, Thou shall not commit adultery, thou shall not kill, thou shall not steal, though shall not bear false witness, thou shall not covet; and if there be any other commandments, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself.” When you repent and be converted these laws, you should keep.

Here is another Exodus 20:8-11 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work. But the seventh day is the Sabbath of YAHUAH thy ELOHYIM: in it, thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy Stranger that is within thy gates. For in six days YAHUAH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore YAHUAH blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Proverbs 4: 1-2 “Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding. For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.”

Ecclesiastes 12:13 – “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear Yah, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For Yah shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”

Shalem!
