This is a really long one, so here goes.
How many of us look forward to the evening when we get a break from our daily routines, work and stress that affect our flesh? Do you know what evening time means according to the Most High God Yahuah, the creator of all things?
It is a sign, and a season and a day and a year when everything that is out of order is made right. It is when a way that seems right to a man, a way that is a crooked path, is made straight. It is a season of full illumination in the light of the Spirit of Truth, the Spirit of the Living Messiah who is already come. It is an acceptable year of illumination that is given to every person who comes out of all of their preconceived ideas, religions, traditions, teachings of men, and vain imaginations. It is a period in biblical history where mankind’s inheritance is evened up.
That season of enlightenment, that day of deliverance, that sign of the times, that happy feast day of Tabernacles is already here. Yes, we are in the days of the evening. And we can see evidence of this in the things of the world that are going through a great shifting. There are religious perversions being exposed. There are governmental oppressions being revealed. There are great quakings and storms and upheavals and even exoduses of peoples of biblical proportions.
Many people are wondering at the signs and wonders of our day. What is happening is that the Heavenly Father is evening the inheritance of his people. He is redistributing the wealth of his Kingdom in Spirit and in flesh. Like it or not, he is calling all people to repentance. He is also pouring out, giving to those who are poor in Spirit and in substance, a double portion blessing upon them to reveal himself to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. And he is also removing things from those who are wise in heart and mind, those who revel in their flesh and in the “wisdom” they think they have, to show them how foolish they really are in all of their worldliness and idolatrous religions and fleshly teachings and doctrines and traditions of men.
Yes, Evening is come. It’s the evening of great light as well as spiritual darkness that is descending upon the world. It’s the great “evening” of the inheritance for the body of Messiah. And it’s a short season where darkness has just as much of an equal chance to take out people who are walking in darkness, as does the light have of saving people of light. There are dead men walking. We are born “half” dead. That’s the Spirit half.
Numbers 12:12 – Let her not be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he cometh out of his mother’s womb.
We’re born into a shadow of the valley of death. Our flesh is half consumed. It’s half eaten. Yuck. Think about the trillions of microbes that live upon our fleshly bodies, and we’ll get some idea of the true image. Sounds like a grisly zombie apocalypse flick, doesn’t it?
But we’re also born at a time just before a true apocalypse occurs. It’s a time when those who have the Spirit of Messiah upon them; those who are the light of the world are expected to rise up and fight the world’s spiritual darkness and all of its warring factions with the light of Messiah’s truth and love. Evening time comes first to the individuals in the body of Messiah, to resurrect their “dead man” of flesh into a powerful Spiritual warrior to assist in the battle. This evening time then comes to all people of flesh in the rest of the world just before judgment comes to all people upon and within the face of the Earth.
A hint for people who are “religious” minded. Judgment comes first to the House of Israel and to the House of Judah before it falls upon the rest of the people in the Earth. So people of religions had better get all of their ducks in a row and fly out of the snares they are setting for themselves before the traps spring shut and hold them in their self-made religious bondage forever. You may not be as “saved” or “holy” or “set apart” as you have convinced yourself that you are.
John 5:39 – Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
People think they have eternal life. But those who do testify of Messiah. The Spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Messiah. Those who have him will prophesy things that will come true. Those who do not have eternal life, do not testify of Messiah as their Lord and Savior. And their works look different than the works that Messiah did. They reject him. They reject his ways. They reject his truth. They reject his Word. They reject his Spirit in favor of their own fleshly, pagan, idolatrous and religious ways. Ouch! The Truth hurts just like a hunter’s spring trap, but it also releases the ensnared from bondage and heals them. Messiah’s sword comes to divide. Pick the side you want to be on: man’s side who cut off the fleshly ear of Malchus, or Messiah’s side of the hands that heal the flesh from the wrong teachings they have endured and that have caused them to become offended or rejected or to reject Messiah.
John 18:10 – Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest’s servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant’s name was Malchus.
Malchus’ name means: King or Kingdom.
As a body, we are entering the latter season of the harvest when the great Spiritual scales of justice are weighing the saints. The angels who serve Heaven are taking their pre-judgment day notations as they observe man’s kingdoms. This is the season where all of the playing fields are being prepared for battle. Who and what will serve Father’s purpose is being prepared with his Word. What and who are slated to be destroyed are being leveled now, or are being marked for levelling in the great day of the Lord. That’s not going to be a good day. It’s a day of darkness and judgment for people of darkness.
The difference between eternal life or eternal darkness is the amount of light that is in your heart. You need the light of Messiah. That’s the only Light there is.
The term or the concept of a great “evening” is good news for some. But for others, it’s maybe not so much of a good news bulletin. Nevertheless, all will repent of their ideas of who or what “God” is on the final day of judgment. He tells us:
Isaiah 45:23 every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me
Joel 2:31 – The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.
The Messiah comes as a thief in the night. But even in that night is the light of the moon, a metaphorical light of Messiah in darkness. His is the blood sacrifice that was given to enlighten even those who are walking in Spiritual darkness. The sun is turned into darkness. It’s a day when even the light seems dark. Even the “good” word of man contains very little Holy Spirit and God’s Very Good Word. It’s a day when the moon eclipses the sun. If you are following the signs of the times, you will know. Before the great day of the Lord, which is in darkness, every knee will bow and every tongue shall confess/swear that Messiah is King.
But before that day comes, we had all better get in alignment not with the moon cycles of pagan idolatry of the physical Earth, but of the light of truth who comes in the time of great Spiritual darkness to enlighten all who look upon his face. We need to repent of our sins and following our own ideas of “how” to “do” God and begin to follow his Word his way. That’s not only his spoken Voice, the Voice of the One who is speaking today. It’s also the voice of Messiah who speaks to us through his written Word in the Scriptures that preserve his Spirit upon the words that are written.
Those who claim to have “scriptures” don’t necessarily have his Spirit upon their words, but a spirit of the world (Satan). But if people are willing to repent of their understanding in favor of Messiah’s wisdom and revelation that he desires to pour out upon them today, then all of their crooked and sinful paths and ways will be forgiven. All they have to do is endure until the end in Messiah, and continue to be repentant and to try to live as he lived/lives and do the works that he tells them to do today. The Word assures us:
Matthew 24:13 – But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Mark 13:13 – And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Those who do endure will be hated by other men because of the name of Messiah. It makes no difference if that name is Jesus, Yeshua, Yahusha or any other derivative of “Joshua” that the name translates into. But note that Messiah’s name is not the same as some “gods” that people claim are the name of the Most High God. There is only One Most High God. He tells us his name. It is YHVH or YHWH. He is not a manmade title and he is not a “moon” or “sun” god either. Don’t get hung up on his name. Just be certain you are following God’s name sake.
What’s in a name? It depends upon who you are, or what priesthood season you live in.
Exodus 3:15 – And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.
A memorial is something that is given to someone who is dead. The LORD God is the name of Father’s own Law of wrath upon sin that he would die to in those hidden in his Son Messiah, once he resurrected and was judged and proven to be “good” and perfect. That’s why Yahusha said this:
Matthew 19:17 – And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
There are no good men. No one is “good” until they die to self and are proven perfect. And no man is perfect except Messiah because he is the only One who is and was and always will be perfect – Father’s perfect, righteous Word forever. But if you will enter life, then keep the commandments. Keep Messiah’s words that he speaks to you, and keep his ways. He will teach you how to walk them out if you listen to his voice in faith and believe him and obey. That’s why we are commanded to “Shema.” Hear and Obey his voice. His voice is inside of you! Now look at this:
Exodus 6:3 – And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.
Yahuah, or Jehovah rather, appeared to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob (and to the Israelites) by the name of God Almighty `el shadday. But by the name of Yĕhovah (YHVH, YHWH, Yahuah, Jehovah or Yehovah), he was not known to them. They didn’t know him! They were worshipping the wrathful, vengeful God that swore he wouldn’t allow the Israelites to enter into his Rest for eternity! Is that really a fair judgment upon people who don’t truly know the Father because he hasn’t revealed himself to them? No! That’s why we need the Merciful Father in Messiah. Only he is the righteous judge of all flesh in all of our different levels of understanding of his Laws and his ways! HalleluYAH!
So, are you serving a wrathful God who destroys all who sin and are sinning in the idolatrous ways of the world? Or are you detaching from the world and serving a Merciful Messiah in the things of the Spirit?
But he knew the Israelites and what their end would be, so he gave them their desired end and their desired pagan religious system. But at the same time that he judged the people for what their end would be (because he could see their heart), he also swallowed up his Levite priests alive into the pit in the wilderness at the tent of meeting. He knew what was in their heart, even if they didn’t understand the fullness of the Law. Falling alive into the pit because they didn’t understand the “don’t bring strange fire before the tabernacle” command, and were obeying the commands of Moses shows us that they didn’t understand. All they knew was obedience to their understanding, even if it was the wrong understanding! That’s what people do in their religions. They obey to their understanding, and they will be judged according to that understanding. But isn’t it far better to be judged in Messiah where he covers all of our sins? That’s the only assurance we have by faith, that we will be saved, no matter what, as long as we are endeavoring to become like him.
The God of wrath judged the Israelite people unfit for the Promised Land! Why? They were pagans, idolators. They wouldn’t listen. They lacked faith. Those who didn’t repent didn’t believe. The Kingdom and the Messiah can only be received by faith.
Yet does Father choose Israel to teach, and yet will he choose those faithful to his Kingdom…as the new Spiritual Israel. That won’t be the religions of any men of “faith,” no matter how “Jewish” or ceremonially “righteous.” Man’s “Jewish”ness is a manmade religion. God’s “Jew”ishness is obeying the voice of Yahuah’s Messiah of the tribe of Judah. That is mankind who repents when shown his unrighteousness. It is a head of a tribe who sets all things right, just like Judah who fathered twins in Tamar, his daughter-in-law, and whose sin was exposed before the people when she returned his staff and seal after playing the harlot to force Judah to give her an heir. Instead of condemning her to death for an illegitimate birth, he allows her to return to her father’s house to raise their sons that he himself had fathered.
Father in Heaven is responsible for the mistakes we make because he is the One who creates all things, including “good” and “evil.” So he sets things right for those whom he has created and who will receive him. We all get to freely choose! That’s what is so great. This latter season is the great equalizer – the season of the evening of the inheritance. Those who desire to inherit the land of the Earth and fleshly things and its god, will receive that inheritance. Those who desire to receive an inheritance of eternal life, must receive Messiah today and begin to die to their flesh today and learn how to live in Love and in Peace in service to him and to the brethren.
We must: Love God with our heart, mind, soul and strength and Love one another as we love ourselves. Those are the two greatest commandments. Everything else hangs upon those two portions, which are really one. That’s because when you love the brethren, you are loving like the Father. And when you love the Father, you’ll love the brethren.
In these latter days, we are in the season of the evening of the harvest. The work of Messiah upon the face of the Earth is nearly finished. He is evening up the knowledge and wisdom of Father’s Word in all flesh. He is teaching us by his Spirit. But he isn’t teaching us to “do” the commandments of Moses’ day. He is only teaching the children about the commandments of Moses’ day. But people are trying to “do” what the Father is trying to teach them.
“Doing” the commandments in the ways of man for longer than a season ensnares us. We must learn about them and then come out of them (in a sense, only in man’s wrong interpretations of them) to be saved. We can’t “do” the commandments the way of the Levitical priesthood. Father will teach us his way, which is right judgment. He will teach us about the Levitical priesthood. And in that process, we’re going to learn the truth about our love of idolatry and of our own will. Do you want to see something about “will”?
First the Israelites promised to keep the commandments. “We will do.” They lied.
Exodus 19:8 – And all the people answered together, and said, All that the LORD hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the LORD.
Then the people do something interesting. They don’t promise to keep the commands. They tell God to will that they keep them. It’s like saying: “Lord, go ahead and will us to do those commands of yours.” The people don’t keep the commands and God doesn’t force anybody to keep them either, although that is his will for us! Do you see the difference?!
Exodus 24:3 – And Moses came and told the people all the words of the LORD, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words which the LORD hath said will we do.
Will us to do them. Have it within your will that we do them. You know we won’t. Go ahead and make us. He won’t. He desires that we do keep them of course, but he won’t force us.
Exodus 24:7 – And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD hath said will we do, and be obedient.
It’s your will that we do it. And it is your will that we will be obedient. We won’t be, until we are mature enough to be able to receive your Spirit and you teach us how to rightly divide and apply the Word in our life today. It isn’t the Levitical priesthood of fleshly men that we are to receive and do from men. It’s Messiah’s priesthood, the way of Melchizedek in our flesh, where we don’t want any of the spoils of the land and we walk by faith according to the Voice of the Almighty speaking to us.
It’s the voice of a Living Messiah whom we are to Hear and Obey, not the voice of a dead prophet named Moses, who was a servant in his day. Sure, we are to learn of Moses and honor him as a servant. And we are to be servants in our day. But guess what? Our priesthood is going to look different than Moses, because Messiah already sanctified and sealed his priesthood and today we walk in his priesthood, not the Levitical priesthood of the flesh and the pagan idolaters who follow that system. Those who live in that Law will be judged in it…and they won’t find salvation, because it’s a priesthood of fleshly people.
It’s the wrong priesthood and the wrong season to be in today. You want to be in the priesthood of Messiah.
Moses and the people were supposed to try to do their Levitical priesthood in the flesh, but they couldn’t because it’s impossible to keep! Messiah’s is the highest priesthood where the Spirit of Messiah falls upon us and we join with him to do his works in this life (and serve him in the next). Father said that he would move people to jealousy with a people who were not a people. He uses the foolishness of this world to confound those who call themselves “wise.” It’s to show us who’s boss and who’s not!
Deuteronomy 32:21 – They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
Dying to self today and serving Father the way his voice (Messiah) tells us to do today is our reasonable service today. Like Yahusha, we detach from our flesh and “die” to self and to those around us who persecute us for our walk, and serve Messiah fully according to all he speaks to us today by his Spirit. Every part of the body of Messiah has a different role to play. But every portion of Messiah’s body comes together to receive from him, learn from him, and do his works!
The harvest is nearly complete. This is the season of the full moon which enables men to work a bit longer because it lights the path to ensure that every part of the harvest is brought forth into the Heavenly storehouse. This is the evening of the inheritance, and it’s beginning to rain. He’s pouring out his Spirit upon all who will receive him. This is where every portion of the body of Messiah is being resurrected from their slumber to serve as the living body in the land for today’s times. It’s the literal raising of the brightness of Messiah like the full moon rising over the darkness of the land.
We’re not talking about some harvest moon, pagan circle dancing ritual of “mother” Earth kind of fall harvest festival around some glorified bonfire. That’s a fleshly, sinful way, a bonfire of the vanities of vain flesh. That’s not the way of Messiah. I’m talking about the Messiah of Heaven who came to Earth for a season as a Spiritual Son. He came to people in the land who were willing to receive him in his day and to light the pathway for people who were yet to come that would receive him in their day, by his Spirit. He rose the first time in the early morning of the Firstfruits of a Spiritual harvest.
Messiah is the Spiritual new moon, and eternal light and life-cycle of illumination upon all darkness. He rises again in the evening of the increase of the harvest, just before great spiritual darkness comes. And guess what? The enemy isn’t expecting the great falling away from man’s religions and churches and synagogues and the resultant Spiritual revival that is coming forth in this season as a last-ditch effort to save humanity from man’s warring flesh and lusts and sins. The enemy wants every man in a manmade religious belief system that is anything but Messiah. That’s the final showdown and the battle of Armageddon. It’s the harlot church (all religions joined under one united system) against the “church” of believers, the assembly of the people of Messiah who unite to battle the darkness of Satan’s dying kingdom.
Receive Messiah today or the Day of Judgment upon the entire Earth will indeed come sooner than later! That’s because it comes by the works of our hands! Men war and hate and kill and destroy, and that is Satan’s works through man’s hands. Men who love and live in peace and help one another and do and speak kindnesses are the image of Messiah.
His moon, his lamp in the darkness, Messiah’s truth burns brightly from one moon cycle unto the next as a shadow of good things to come until the full light of man’s Spiritual day arrives and people come into the fullness of the knowledge of Father’s truth. He literally rescues us from the darkness and the night of our lives into the light of day if we allow him to do so. We can see clues to his second coming in the light of the brightness of the moon. That’s a hint of his eternal glory, even in the darkness. We can see another hint of his glory in the noonday sun or in the eclipse of the sun by the moon and you can see the light around the edges (but don’t look at it)!
You can see when this brightness of the moon occurs if you observe a full moon for three days around the time it first appears. The fullness of the moon will reveal the brightness of his glory in the dark. That usually occurs the second or third day of what our eyes perceive as the full moon. There is a slight aura or halo around the moon at its brightest point in the night. Remember that the moon reflects the light of day somewhere else. We don’t want to be just the image of Messiah. We were made to be his image and likeness. That means we look and act like him whether it is day or night, no matter where we are.
But in the moonlight if you look, you will see crisp shadows that are cast upon the Earth by the objects that stand against the moonlight. That light illuminates the beasts of the fields and in the winter it makes the snow crystals sparkle in a beautiful way. But it is still cold and dark. It’s only a pattern of the true image, like the Levitical priesthood. We need the noonday sun in our Spirit. We need the risen body of Messiah that casts no shadow of darkness (day or night).
Now, the Word’s commandments to observe the moon’s cycles doesn’t mean that we worship the moon. We don’t. And it doesn’t mean that we are commanded to hold worship services around moon cycles. We’re not! It also doesn’t mean that we are to hold feast days to the moon or to “gods” in the way that men have determined or are continuing to invent in religions that newly spring up. We shouldn’t be doing that unless we are still pagans. Our fathers never heard of many of the religions we have today, including those “Moses” supposedly taught (but he didn’t).
Deuteronomy 32:17 – They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.
We don’t worship the moon or pray to the moon or bow down to the moon or serve the moon in any way or use it to serve our God in any way or serve moon-related or sun-related religions or traditions of men. And we don’t wear signs and symbols of moons or suns or fish or crosses or stars of “David” that are really false gods, or any other manmade “pagan” symbols. Father commands us not to make graven images of any kind. No, Father commanded man to observe the moon’s cycles for a season. That season is while man is still in idolatry, until we recognize that it is idolatry and come out of it. It is a pattern of an old priesthood that we are merely to observe, to watch, until we learn the pattern by HEART.
That old priesthood pattern will hopefully reveal to us in the season when we are ready to receive it, that Messiah is missing from the Levitical priesthood pattern that we are trying to fulfill in the flesh!
That realization alone allows us to come into the fullness of the knowledge of the One who represents that pattern by his Spirit, because he calls us out of the pattern and frees us from that bondage to seek the priest of the highest priesthood! We are commanded to observe to do. We are to observe (look at) something so that when we find the One who is the true image of that pattern. Only then will we know how to identify him and then do what he tells us to do. It’s like the guards of a watch tower. They observe the comings and goings of the people. They don’t go in and out of the gate when they are on guard. They stand either at or above the gate and observe/watch the people. Only when they recognize the ones they are watching for, do they act, and only when commanded to do so!
It is while man is still fleshly and tied to the ways and things of the world that those men and women and children are going to be trying to “do” the Levitical priesthood patterns. Those patterns and doctrines and images are given to train people who are in idolatry (that’s all flesh). When we are truly ready to detach from our flesh, we will let go of those patterns, those images, those shadows of the true priest and priesthood of man in the Levitical system. We’ll let go of those training wheels that were given in part to help train us up in the ways of the One who will be our Master Teacher.
But it is Messiah himself who trains us up in how to walk in his priesthood in full while we are here in this season. The priesthood roles of the Firstfruits of the latter harvest season are the same roles of the apostles of Messiah’s early season. And we’ll also face similar persecutions if we become Firstfruits, even during this season, which is the season of the increase of the harvest. It is a season where there is a great increase of good as well as evil. It is a season where mankind is reaping in full, what he has sown.
Only when you come out of your worldliness and religions and doctrines of men and continue to pursue the Father’s voice on your own, will he bring you into the fullness of his truth. And that fullness of his truth brings you to the realization of how much of man’s “religions” and “traditions” and “faith” is steeped in idolatry – even in people who sincerely love the Lord as they understand him.
That doesn’t mean that we can’t assemble. We are to do so. But the way we assemble and “congregate” also changes to a sort of equalized (even) “roundtable” discussion of living, moving revelations. It’s where every person has input and meaningful exchanges of growth, deliverance and healings can occur. It’s not a meal of offense that separates and divides congregations. It’s a meal of Spiritual and fleshly enrichment and edification. It’s no longer man who is standing in the pulpit beyond leading the people into a faithful delivery of the Holy Spirit who desires to fully move in those being ministered to. Man is to pitch the $25.00 static internet sermon of fleshly darkness in favor of on-the-fly Holy Spirit inspired teachings directly animating our hearts and resurrecting our Spirits that come from God’s lips straight to our ears.
And yet Father uses our understanding of the flesh and the fleshly things of this world to teach us about him and also about ourselves. How brilliant is that? Nevertheless, man continues to try to usurp the role of Messiah as teacher, by teaching “the gospel” of man instead of the gospel of Messiah. Man doesn’t understand the feast “days” or the appointed times or whose they are, let alone is he qualified to teach them. The only time man is commanded to keep feast days that pertain to any celestial moon is when he is ensnared in pagan idolatry. Yes, that’s what was said. Idolatry. Even the way that men are teaching the feasts is about to change.
That’s not teaching people not to keep the commandments (as man understands them). It is rather teaching the people to keep GOD’S commandments the way he tells us to keep them. He is the teacher of every man, woman and child in the latter season.
1 John 2:27 – But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
We abide in that teacher. That teacher is in the Kingdom of Heaven. The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand and it is within you.
Understand that when a person is first illuminated by the light of the Word, there is still a measure of darkness within that person. It is inherent to the flesh. That darkness must be overcome. Much work has to be done to eliminate darkness (sin) in our lives. That battle between flesh and Spirit is ongoing. It demands that we “die” to our flesh, our worldly desires and lusts and wants, to serve the Father in the way that he desires for us. But service to the Father doesn’t mean we have to become “priests” or ministers in the way that men teach or ordain. Father’s “priests” are those who serve the eternal High Priest Messiah himself.
Your talents are already ordained from birth, as is the life plan for you. You just have to be awakened from your spiritual slumber to step into the “shews” (ministry shoes) of Messiah that he will personally lead you to. Although we are led to the truth, we still have the true and only right of choice. We can decide to receive Messiah by the price he paid for our eternal salvation and do the plan he has for our life, or we can reject him now, do whatever we want to do now in sin (because there is no righteousness in flesh) and pay the price for that sin with our life for eternity.
Receiving Messiah is simple and quite simply, the better choice. That’s because he leads to eternal life. Any other choice is rejection of our one true choice. Rejection of Messiah leads to death and eternal damnation, separation and suffering. It’s NOT a choice you want to make! Those who reject Messiah as their Savior and who portray themselves as religious or righteous, have no righteousness at all! They are cursed people who are teaching fleshly ways and are facing damnation if they don’t repent once they come into the knowledge of the truth. That’s a hard word to receive, but it is Father’s truth.
Matthew 5:20 – For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Those scribes and modern day “Pharisees” (religious leaders of men) condemned Messiah in his day in their religious and governmental courtrooms and are still doing the same thing today. They teach that anyone who doesn’t “do” God their way or who follow their doctrines, teachings or other fleshly interpretations and opinions are “going to hell.” That’s the burnt pot calling the kettle blackened when it can’t see how soot-covered it really is. The only way to “do” God is to do what Messiah did and to hear his voice and obey him today. We are to do what he tells us to do today in our day. What is it? It is the same commandments that we have heard from the beginning, but that few people have actually ever done.
That isn’t keeping the tabernacle traditions of the Israelites of Moses’ day!
It is keeping the Tabernacle of Heaven in all that we do today in the Spirit of Messiah.
Now, if you live today and you don’t have the Spirit of Messiah upon you, then quite frankly you are still in darkness and have not come into the fullness of the light of Messiah. But that’s not anything to be ashamed of. All people are led first into the wilderness before they are set free from their religious bondage.
To that end, Father uses the paganized, fleshly Levitical priesthood of every religious system to teach and train his children up in the patterns and principles of Messiah and his priesthood. We don’t “do” the training pattern. We “do” what Messiah teaches us to do by his voice. Men do what other men teach them to do, instead of what Messiah’s voice tells them to do. If your “god” is telling you to “do” the Levitical priesthood system and the systems that men are teaching, then go ahead and do that until you realize that it is all idolatry and vanity. It’s a religion that has newly sprung up. It’s a religion that our father’s did not fear.
They only feared God’s voice in the wilderness. That’s why they put Moses in between Father’s voice and their ears. They didn’t want to hear his voice lest they die, lest they were and are held accountable for what he says to them. People are still putting men and women between the voice of the Father and their own ears because they don’t want to hear Father’s truth. They do this because they actually fear God. But the Father’s way, truth and life, his Messiah will set you free if you have ears to hear and eyes to see. And when you truly come to know him, you will get over your fear because he is a LOVING GOD of Peace.
What does man do? He tries to keep the patterns and lessons of fear and wrath against sinful flesh and he remains in his flesh instead of allowing Messiah to work in him in the way he desires to truly work and love. He wants to heal you. He already forgives you. You need to forgive yourself and others to be healed.
Galatians 5:17 – For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
Even Paul said that he found himself doing things he didn’t want to do. What have men done? They have made Paul high priest (or Peter or Moses or anyone else). Men have inserted themselves as high priest in a priesthood role that was never his to fulfill. The high priest of a fleshly god of wrath is the Levitical high priest. That’s God’s wrath (Satan). The high priest of eternal life is God’s Mercy and righteous judgment, our Messiah Yahusha forever.
Fleshly men who do the feasts and commandments in the way they interpret “Moses” and the “Israelites” of the Old Testament aren’t entirely “wrong.” They’re just beginning their walk of faith in Messiah through an ancient path. They are merely Israelite born (in Spirit). They are babes. They have a long way to go, because they are following in the footsteps of the pagan Israelites. They need to grow up and mature in that knowledge so that they can know to come out of that priesthood and serve Messiah, or they will die in the wilderness, just like the Israelites did.
You can’t follow their steps and call yourself “children of Israel” until you come out of their idolatrous system and enter into the Messiah’s priesthood. He wants to teach you a better way, a higher way. And he wants to give you a higher heart, a Spiritual heart of love and peace. When people do finally come out of idolatry and religions, they will enter into the priesthood of Messiah again, but as a little child. Only when they turn to him in complete faith, free of all of man’s teachings (including the Levitical system of our fleshly understanding) can they be truly used.
Romans 3:28 – Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
Our justification is in the works that we do in Messiah, according to what he gives us to do, by his voice. Our faith is how we receive the Kingdom. It isn’t by “doing” a Levitical priesthood system of dead flesh. Those are dead works. Most people who are in religious systems of any kind are sincere people who love “the Lord,” but they are very much like the Israelites of Moses’ time. They are simply deceived. They said:
one voice, and said, All the words which the LORD hath said will we do.And Moses came and told the people all the words of the LORD, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with
“Sure. We’ll do what the Lord says. We’ll do all of it, even though we haven’t been given all of it to do, nor have we been shown the whole picture, but we’ll just make it up as we go along. You tell us what to do Moses, and we’ll do that. We don’t want to hear God’s voice. We’re afraid of him.”
Of course because of fear and unbelief, the people can’t receive what they aren’t given or do what they don’t understand is theirs to do or what isn’t theirs to do, even when the Spirit tells them.
Hearing the voice of the Spirit of Messiah requires that we transform our lives! People don’t want to do that. They like things that make them comfortable.
Moses wasn’t given the full picture, the full pattern, the full image of Messiah’s priesthood; at least not at that point, because God knew the people wouldn’t do it as a body. Only a few would – Joshua, Caleb and the children. It is impossible to “do” the Law in the way that God intends for Messiah to keep it. That’s because only he knows the Law in full. Perfect judgment can only come from One who is perfect. Only Messiah can hear the Father’s voice, because he IS Father’s voice. Messiah is alive and still speaking today. And understand that every Word spoken is the LAW! How can anyone keep the Law in full if it is still being revealed? You can’t! That’s why we need Messiah. We die to our flesh today and receive his Spirit and then do our best to do whatsoever he tells us to do. It’s really that simple. We love. We remain at peace with all men, no matter what.
The “Torah portions” that were given to Moses in his day were later spelled out for the pagan Israelite people and their leader to perform in their day, to teach every person that the punishment of sin is death. But hidden within that image is the promise of a redemptive Messiah, if you have the Spirit to see him hidden in the altar sacrifices and tabernacle structures and instruments and rituals. But people who do these rituals today don’t have the Spirit upon them in full because if they did, he would tell them that the rituals are all vanity and idolatry.
The Levitical priesthood wasn’t and isn’t designed for the people of today to try to return to the former things and “do” in the way that the Israelites were commanded to do in the wilderness days. But we are to return to the knowledge of the former things, so we can observe the patterns, not do them! We are to observe to do them. We are to observe how Messiah did his priesthood in order to walk as he did, under the instructions that he gives us to do today, by his voice!
Every “priest” or priestly body and every “common” person in the wilderness (heathen) has a portion of the priesthood to fulfill. We’re not to call someone common, because we are all equal, but it is a way to differentiate between those who serve the tabernacle of Messiah and those who are still serving the Levitical priesthood fleshly tabernacle. Regardless, we all have a portion of the priesthood of Messiah to fulfill, although how those portions look to us changes in the flesh and in the Spirit, depending upon what priesthood season we as individuals, and people as members of the body of Messiah are in.
The Israelites in the desert were supposed to sanctify the coming Messiah and his priesthood. They failed miserably in favor of their idolatry and life of murmuring and complaining against the Father and against the one he was using to speak through, which is not something you want to do! We must be very careful with one another, because Father uses anyone he desires to speak to us. That person doesn’t have to be sanctified or even human. Look at Balaam’s ass. After the people came out of captivity, they resurrected a book of “the Law” of Moses and once again tried to fulfill the Levitical priesthood, which they could do at that time, until the Messiah came. Once he came, they were supposed to walk away from that priesthood. But they refused to do so, and “killed” Messiah in the process. (Of course he allowed this to perfect his priesthood and ours, although his true purpose was hidden from the religious leaders and even his own disciples until he chose to reveal it.)
will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.And he said, I
The people of Israel had no faith. Moses lacked faith. So Father gave them a faithless system. It was a bloody system of idol worship and merciless killing and blood and death. It was actually the image of a coming Messiah hidden within an idolatrous system. But it was also a gruesome image of judgment.
Exodus 34:10 – And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth, nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of the LORD: for it is a terrible thing that I will do with thee.
Moses was shown the Tabernacle and the Heavenly high priesthood of Messiah. But what he communicated to the pagan people through his heart and mind that were not yet fully renewed in Messiah ended up much like the golden calf that emerged from the fire. That’s because although Moses gives the commandments to the people disguised as Messiah, it takes people of right judgement to see the truth in the commandments he gives, as well as what doesn’t apply to them in their day. It takes the Spirit of Truth upon the people who are not steeped in pagan religions or traditions or doctrines of men to be able to rightly divide and rightly judge the Word, the commandments that have been given to the people for all time. That revelation doesn’t occur until the latter days! In the meantime people are teaching discernment and judgment from their flesh. We aren’t the judges. God is!
Father warned that he would do something terrible to the “Israelite” people of paganism because of their idolatry. (“Israel” is anyone who isn’t walking in Messiah. Israel is actually Egypt. Just look carefully at the image below.) Father gave the people a priesthood in such a complex puzzle that the image and pattern it painted was something that only pagans could relate to. The portions that were shown to them resembled their own pagan idolatrous systems of which the people were already most familiar.
But the clincher is this. Even though the system was custom tailored to train the people in an elaborate plan to reveal their own idolatry, the people who were idolators couldn’t even keep the system they were given. That’s because no man is able to sanctify a high priesthood office in Heaven no matter what it looks like. What is Spirit is Spirit’s alone to sanctify. The highest office is held alone by the high priest forever – Messiah Yahusha. The Levitical system and its temple and tabernacle and altar of sacrifice were Heavenly. The flesh was only given an image, a shadow of the Heavenly Tabernacle because it was meant to be a teaching tool. They weren’t supposed to become the lesson. They were supposed to be taught a lesson. And now you can clearly see, that mankind has been taught a painful lesson about his own idolatry.
Come out of the fleshly systems, men of flesh. Come out of darkness into the light of the the living Messiah. Yes Messiah lives. Or would you rather continue serving a dead priesthood of the flesh in which all of its high priests and servants are dead now that you know better? That image of the fleshly Levitical priesthood and its temple and altar of sacrifice is also an image of eternal hell and damnation. I don’t know about you, but I don’t desire to be killed and re-killed and grossly mutilated and consumed for eternity as demons of darkness dance about rejoicing in their inheritance of sinful human flesh! Look at the image below and notice how who we thought was Israel is really Egyptian.
The Egyptians, the heathens keep the feasts in the Levitical system. They have to, because that is the only hint of Messiah that they have. And they will be judged in that fleshly system, as will all people be judged in their fleshly religions and systems, to see if they were faithful to the voice of Yahuah (even if he used those systems to speak to them). Yes, Father does draw people closer to him in religious systems. But it is his desire that we come out of all systems and hear his voice speak to us and that we obey whatever he tells us to do.
Yes, Moses was an Egyptian. He was born Hebrew, but he died on the mountain because he lacked faith. He didn’t enter the promised land in the flesh, as a model. He was God’s servant! And that’s actually okay from our new perspective. We’re not speaking against Moses or the Levitical priesthood as a system of training up the children in the way that they should go. We’re only emphasizing that it’s a fleshly system that people need to exit so that they can receive Messiah by faith and perform his works in his priesthood. Messiah never sacrificed animals. He only spent his childhood, his formative years dwelling in booths. He didn’t go up to the feasts to do anything but teach truth, because it wasn’t his full time. When you have his Spirit upon you, he tabernacles with you daily. You keep the commands because they are written upon your heart and are in your mind. He writes them there.
Hebrews 10:16 – This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;
We see Moses standing upon the mountaintop with Messiah and Elias. Moses represents the Father. Messiah the Son, and Elias the Holy Spirit (Matthew 17:4). Well, Elias comes and restores all things. That’s the Holy Spirit in our day. But the things he is restoring is the proper interpretation of the Scriptures, by the Spirit of Messiah himself.
Remember that God’s Word is a two-edged sword. It will show you an image of truth and light and it will reveal the darkness within. It will show you God’s wrath of the judgment of death upon sinful flesh, and it will reveal his merciful judgment of eternal life upon those who love and serve him. But the key is that we hear his voice and obey what he tells us to do TODAY.
Did you learn the Levitical priesthood system of your religion or lack thereof from God? No. You learned about it from men and then you began to try to fulfill it in your flesh after the pattern that fleshly men are teaching. They aren’t teaching the way of Messiah. They are teaching the way of the fleshly tabernacle! We must repent of man’s teachings and take the good aspects of them with us and discard the unsavory portions. But we need Father’s right judgment to be able to do this. That only comes when we receive the Messiah’s Spirit.
God gives people over to the very things they desire in order to teach them powerful lessons about his sovereignty and might. While they may be useful for a brief season, if you remain in those “lifestyles” and “religions” and “traditions” that men invent and which do not serve the Father in the way that he desires, then those very unholy things that you think are holy will become Great Spiritual snares that will trap you for eternity. Come out of all of that!
Remember that the Israelites worshipped “gods” that weren’t the voice of the One True God. Even when they were worshipping the “right” God, they still didn’t know him in his mercy. They only knew a wrathful, vengeful God. And yet if you remember that God is the creator of all things, then you can see that he uses his own wrath and fear of his judgment to teach us about the fullness of his mercy, wisdom and love. The Israelites didn’t want to hear Yahuah’s voice at Mount Horeb in the day he was speaking about idolatry to them. They knew that they would die. Then it became Moses’ job to teach the people what was spoken to him. The problem was that Moses didn’t believe what God told him. He struck the rock instead of spoke to it, to make the water burst forth. Today that rock is barren and dry. The waters no longer flow in the earthly Sinai.
Messiah came to speak against manmade religions. He taught in the synagogues and temples to enlighten those who were living in darkness. Only a handful of these men repented and came out of their idolatry. And in truth, all who remain in religions of men and who don’t receive Messiah and live in love and forgiveness are facing eternal damnation.
Job 18:2 – How long will it be ere ye make an end of words? mark, and afterwards we will speak.
Write this upon your mind and heart. How long will mankind use the written Word to usurp the voice of the Spirit? No, we are to allow the Father to write his commandments upon our heart and mind and then do what his voice, our Messiah tells us to do. You will by nature keep his Laws in full because his Spirit won’t break his own Laws and he will give you his Spirit. And men will revile you for it, although many people will see him revealed in you, and it is for the Father and for the brethren that you live and serve Messiah. You never know who will be the brethren, so don’t judge other people the way of the flesh and then reject and exclude them because they don’t agree with your foolish religious doctrines or opinions that you think are right, but that are left and should be immediately left behind.
Receiving Messiah and his truth begins with repentance of our sins and daily honesty before the Father in Heaven. It comes with prayer, talking one on one with the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of the Living God, through his voice, Messiah. It requires humility and faith. Then as the person spends more time before the Lord of the living, the Messiah (by the Word and by prayer), the level of illumination in that person increases.
Eventually if the person continues in faith and daily repentance, the light of Messiah and the power that is his that is within them rises to such a degree that it can be seen and felt by all who look upon that person (or touch them or come into contact with them). This is a process of transformation from flesh into powerful Spiritual warriors in every person who truly seeks to know the Father in Heaven and the Son he sent to redeem us.
When you first begin to learn a new skill, there is a learning curve. There is a transition from the things you used to know and do, to a newer, higher level of what you now know and do. There is a casting off of the old knowledge in favor of the new, because the new is higher and better. A similar thing occurs when we learn and grow in the Word of the Father, in biblical Scriptures, and more importantly, in direct prayer with the Father in Heaven. Give people a chance when you see them going through this transition. It is difficult, but it is the point in their walk where the watered down gospels of men turns into the fine wine of the blood of Messiah. If you kick people out and don’t wait upon Messiah, you’ll miss the cup of wine they will become. You’ll thirst and maybe even die.
To see truth in our flesh, we read the Word of Scripture in fleshly Bibles or scrolls. But the Spirit that is behind the Scriptures is the One we need to bring our dead flesh to life. That Spirit of Messiah has been preserved for eternity and remains hidden behind the printed, written, recorded Word until our heart is open enough to receive Messiah to a greater degree. What blocks our ability to hear, receive and obey Messiah? Our attachment to the world, our flesh and our fleshly desires and ideas.
Yes, the state of your fleshly body, mind and heart have everything to do with your ability to receive the Spirit of Messiah, as well as his revelations of truth. At any time individuals may receive Messiah in any measure, including to a full measure, as we saw in Messiah’s day when the apostles received the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. But we also saw that the disciples were off buying meat for their flesh while Messiah sat at the well and spoke to the Samaritan woman, to whom he revealed his arrival and priesthood. She received water of the Word as well as the meat of the gospel because she was honest, humble, and in a position to receive the Prophet when he came in her day. Where are you at? Are you off buying meat for your flesh? Or are you the woman at the well or in the Samaritan village who receive the Spirit of Messiah for two days?
The Holy Spirit is not a separate entity from the Father. It is a portion of the Father’s Spirit poured out upon us, as a helper. But who is the Father? He is the Lawful One, the great Spiritual entity who created all things. He is the Living Spirit and Mastermind behind all of creation. Who is the Son? He’s a portion of the Father’s Living Spirit. That Spirit isn’t just his portion of the “Law” of wrath upon sin. He’s the fullness of the Father in his Eternal Gospel of Love and Peace. Messiah is the actual voice and hands of creation in a human countenance to teach us how to walk in the fullness of his Everlasting gospel of Love and Peace. The message has always been the same. But the people of the world, the body that is to become the bride of Messiah, has never before been spiritually willing to keep Messiah – at least not until today.
Deuteronomy 32:39 – See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.
The LORD of the flesh is the wrath of God, or Satan. It’s Yahuah’s merciless wrath upon sin. It’s the definitive judgment of death upon all unrepentant sinners. There is no mercy for the wicked who do not repent of their sins and fleshly idolatry and lusts and religions and traditions and doctrines of hatred and idolizing things and of war and killing and oppression and demonic ideals, which is simply living any way other than how Father desires for us to live. How does he desire for us to live? That’s according to the fullness of his commandments (not how man interprets them but how God speaks and interprets them for us). The one who convicts the living by his Spirit, is the Spirit of Messiah. That conviction that you feel is him speaking his truth to you. Don’t ignore it. Hear and obey him. He’s a just God, and he’s just One God. But he gives his Word and his wisdom in bite-sized portions that the people can understand. It’s just like feeding a baby. We don’t give a baby a full-sized steak dinner. We begin with milk and then soft foods.
The Lord God of creation is Yahuah’s voice, his mouthpiece and hands, the Messiah Yahusha (Jesus/Yeshua) that he sent to prove his own living Word perfect and righteous so that we may be saved through his Spirit. We are saved by becoming One with him through joining with his Spirit – through him, in him and with him alone. Sound religious? Well, man takes truth and weaves a matrix of his own interpretations around that truth. But the true aspects remain. Everything man creates will fall away. It will burn on the fire and be consumed. Flesh dies. Spirit lives. If you serve the god of flesh, the wrath of God and the things that displease him, then you will die for eternity and be separated from him. If you serve the Spirit of the Living God, then you are merciful, repentant, loving and kind. You are going about doing the works of Messiah. You aren’t keeping religious traditions and doctrines of fleshly men and their systems that put people into and keep people in bondage.
That doesn’t mean that the Most High God doesn’t use our idolatry and sinfulness to teach us his Truth and that there is a far better way for us to live. He does. But he desires that individuals and the body of Messiah that is made up of individuals, come out of all sin and ways of the flesh that don’t serve him the way he desires (not the religious ways of men, no matter how sincere), and that we enter into the works and ways of the Messiah he sent instead of the ways and things we invent to “honor” him that don’t honor him at all.
Yes, Messiah Yahusha is an actual living portion of the Father in the flesh, made by God so that we could learn of him and learn how we are expected to walk in the righteousness that we are intended to walk. Cast aside the old ways you have learned from men. Father’s Spirit is here in our season, the latter season of the harvest, to help the people of the latter season (us today) learn of him and walk as Messiah walked. How is he interacting with us today? He does it the very same way that he has always done it – by his Spirit in people who have repented and become Word made flesh themselves.
Any sincere person who desires to truly know Messiah must be willing to be honest and repentant. They must be willing to let go of the fleshly things they have been taught about “God” and “worship” and religion and “faith” and walking with Messiah. The Spirit of the Living God, the Spirit of Messiah, the Voice of the Father (who is Spirit) has never left us! That is, a portion of him resides within every person on the planet who has ever been created. The evidence is in the Word, so let’s look at it. Father’s truth all begins with humility and honestly anyway.
Hebrews 13:5 – Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
He says that he will: a. never leave us, and b. nor forsake us. That means that he has always been with us.
He poured out his blood and water upon the ground when the spear pierced his flesh in his side (his rib, his heart of mercy). He left his soiled priesthood garment on the Earth too. Remember?
Every person who has the breath of life within them, already has a portion of the Father’s Word of truth within them. They have a measure of truth. Just the mere fact that we are spoken into existence means that we have a portion of the Father’s voice within us. But we also have a portion of dead flesh, because we are made from dead flesh. We are made of the dust of the Earth. We are actually born “half” dead. We are born as natural beings who are affected by the spirits that are all around us, including those within the people all around us.
This is a spiritual war, not a fleshly one.
1 Corinthians 15:50 – Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
Galatians 1:16 – To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:
Ephesians 6:12 – For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
So stop warring in your flesh! The battle is in the Spirit. Start fighting there with prayer and with love! Those who live by the sword will die by the sword. All of the Israelites and the men of war died in the wilderness. None of them enter the Promised Land, and neither will you if you don’t “die” to yourself and to the ways of the world and your fleshly lusts and desires. Repent. Receive Messiah. Then live for him. Here is a truth for you to ponder that will help you conquer your emotions (which are fleshly).
It’s not all about you. It’s about where other people are at in their understanding. It’s about being Messiah yourself so you can bring those people to a better understanding; to a place of physical and Spiritual healing. Watch your words! You are either speaking life over yourself and others or you are speaking death.
Proverb 15:1 – A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
Romans 7:23 – But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
The law in your members begins in your heart and your mind. We are born with hearts of stone. We are born literally half dead. We have bodies of flesh, but hearts of stone. We have only a little light in our body, which is what ambulates us in the flesh. We have only a soul memory of the Father. We have no consciousness of the Father unless and until he awakens us from our spiritual slumber. In effect, in the flesh we’re like spiritual zombies. We’re sleeping in our lives even though we are walking around in the world. We have another spirit within us that gives us animation. That is the father of the flesh. That is a sinful father called Satan. He is the god of the flesh, a god of fear and sin and merciless wrath. He is the one who leads us toward all fleshly lusts and desires and worldly connections simply because we are made of flesh. And that flesh comes from the Earth. Remember we are dust. Satan is a god of the dead. He is the wrath of the Father that is poured out upon all sin.
We know the story. Father’s wrath is quenched by Messiah’s innocent death on the cross. Satan is defeated in the end. But that defeat comes only after all of those who are spiritually dead in the latter days are given a chance to resurrect the Messiah who is in them. Yes, Messiah slumbers within you. He must be awakened and resurrected in you as an individual and also in the body of Messiah. We don’t only awaken from our spiritual slumber in the knowledge that there is a Messiah and okay we receive him and thank you very much have a nice day and leave me alone so I can go serve him the way I think he should be served, or not at all. That’s not being “born again.” That’s being born again in man’s interpretations. Those can get you killed.
Being truly born again is truly receiving the Spirit of Messiah in full. That is a gift that is given for true repentance, true reverence, true prayer, truly desiring to love and to serve the Father and understanding that to do so, we must truly love and forgive ourselves and everyone around us, no matter how they treat us. When he decides that we are truly ready to receive him, he will bless us with his Holy Spirit! That’s a great day of the Lord of the Spirit! Then if we are diligent, obedient and faithful to him, he will give us our priesthood.
Messiah raised those who were sleeping. They only looked dead to us. He’s here to raise the sleeping person who first dies to their sinful flesh. Then by the mercy and power of the Holy Spirit they sit up and begin to stand in Messiah and walk upright. As they learn and grow in Messiah and continue to pursue his ways and die to their own ways, their outer garments change from flesh to his priestly mantle. This transition causes everything in your life to change, but it is truly a miraculous work! You truly become a new creation. Nothing about your old way of life seems important. Now you receive the wisdom and revelation of the Father and begin to walk as Messiah walked. Every day is a new beginning and his mercies are renewed daily. You will learn to truly love and truly forgive and truly bless those to whom you are sent (and who are sent to you).
Every person has a choice to make today, just as they have always had a choice to make. Will you serve Messiah or will you continue to serve Satan? Will you remain in manmade religions that serve a dead, deified wrathful, paganized, religiously idolized “zombie messiah” who dies on a pagan symbol and who after a day and a half is powerless to raise the dead and dying because it is a dead religious lie of the serpent tongues who teach manmade twisted gospels? Or will you serve the Living Voice of Truth? Will you choose to serve the Spirit of the Eternal, Living Messiah who resurrects those who sleep who are alive, and who are awakened to repentance in life as well as all who sleep who are dead in the Earth but who received him and believed his voice – a Messiah who will save you simply because he loves those who love and believe him?
Messiah chose to even the inheritance. He didn’t desire a bride to be ignorant while he knew all things. “Adam” chose to sin in the garden when Eve wanted to know more about the world around her. She didn’t want to remain ignorant. She didn’t understand that even if a piece of fruit falls from a tree, that it is still part of a tree. She wanted to become wise in the things of the Father.
Adam could have taken the matter before the Father and said “Hey, she was ignorant. She was tricked.” And Eve could have repented. But since the two are really one unit, perhaps Adam felt he had to sin so that they would be treated fairly and never parted. Was Adam really Adam? Well, he is the metaphor for Yahusha Messiah, and Eve, the bride. After all, he says he will never leave us nor forsake us, so what we experience, he does as well. And since he’s within each of his people, he is suffering right alongside us. We just have to look to see that he’s really there. And then we have to resurrect him right alongside of us, from within and he’ll help us if we just take his hand. That’s some really powerful medicine, right there, and it’s not a placebo effect!
We should desire wisdom, but we should await Yahuah’s timing in obtaining that wisdom. It is fine to seek worldly wisdom to a point. But we should be more observant than we are touchy feely. We need to glean what we can from the fields of man, and take what we learn before the Father who created all things and who holds all wisdom, and ask him “what does this mean?”. We need his wisdom and revelation upon his own Word. Man can give his fleshly wisdom and occasional spiritual insights. But until Father is ready to reveal a thing to you, you simply won’t receive the revelation.
Unfortunately man has, for millenniums, worried about how much “wisdom” he has and that race to become wise has become some kind of competition (to use a word that someone threw out the other day in concern over how Father is moving today). Father’s Word exposes all things into the light, and that’s a good thing. Every day we have choices to make. We can choose to accept thoughts that pop into our heads and then use them to accuse the brethren. Or we can choose to reject those thoughts; taking them captive and casting down vain imaginations that we know are just not true. They walk around in our heads and hearts like spiritual zombies.
What do the fleshly heroes in the Hollywood zombie movies typically do? They blast them apart, but it doesn’t work. The zombies just keep on ambling along. Flesh is vain and negative. Satan keeps resurrecting old wounds and old sins. But Father’s Spirit is loving and positive. He will wound you with the truth, but that’s your ego being wounded because you have something that is “Satan’s” still living inside of you that he wants you to “die” to. A true zombie-killing Messiah-carrying person can throw a little Spiritual Living water upon that negative zombie thought and quench its hellfires forever.
If you have negative thoughts, then get in Father’s Word and he’ll show you what’s right and what should be immediately left. And he’ll teach you how to stand in the gap between the Old and New Testaments so that you can join the two together in such a way that they begin to truly make sense and come to life. After all, it is man who has assembled the Bible together in such a way that its books and letters appear separated like a dismembered altar sacrifice of the temporarily zombified Levitical system that we serve only until that season ends, like the way the seasons transition a tree from Fall and winter (sin and death) to spring and summer (rebirth and life).
Father weaves the linen story of the high priest together as divine storyteller when the audience is ready to listen. Ever watch children at a library reading hour? They typically sit transfixed on the woman (or sometimes man) sitting on the stool who reads to them. That’s how we are to become – more eyes and ears and less animation until we learn the story and then can apply it in our lives and the world around us in its proper proportion. And there aren’t enough libraries or books to contain the Word for eternity, the Everlasting gospel of the Kingdom of life.
Choose this day whom you will serve. Serve Messiah. Choose Life. Even the inheritance. Give what you have from your substance, and from your soul. Give a Word of knowledge when you get one. Give a healing touch to those in need. Help that man put on his jacket when you’re next in line and you can plainly see he is struggling. Be the person who helps an elderly person safely across the MacDougal’s parking lot drive-thru lane, even if they don’t think they “need” help. The driver in the huge white truck who comes barreling around the bend won’t necessarily see the frail person tottering along. Be Messiah’s hands and feet and mouth and heart and do the works that he did, today, as he leads you to do them. It’s the only choice you truly have.
It’s the evening of the Spirit. Receive him now so that all may come into the unity of the faith by the works of our “hands” and his Body. Then the end will come. And what a glorious victory believers will share in that day.
Thanks for enduring unto the end of this very long post. That’s your life as a watchman and soldier on Earth in the Kingdom of Yahuah. That’s what we are to do in life. Endure in Messiah until the very End. Then and only then do we have the hope of salvation upon his righteous judgment.
