TRUTH – It’s Never Too Late to Tell it.

As I was waiting in the High School office this morning (I am a substitute teacher in the local High School.), I noticed a poster on the wall outside the principal’s office. It said, “TRUTH – It’s never too late to tell it!” That poster inspired this post!

It’s absolutely amazing how important telling the truth is in this culture! Growing up in public education systems and not to mention living in the Bible belt, telling the truth was and still is a very important thing. I can remember multiple times in school when I was caught in a lie that I had told about a friend, or whatever else I was involved in, and shuttering as the administration would shake the truth out of me. Whether it was at school or at home, I’m sure we all have had similar situations in our lives...

Learn Torah | Faithful with little, Faithful with MUCH!

Yeshua said, in Luke 16:10, “He who is faithful with little, will also be faithful with much.” What does this mean? I have always heard this verse applied to finances, because that’s what the parable is speaking of, but I wonder if this might have a deeper meaning! I mean, what if this “parable” is speaking of WAY more than our money?

I see something VERY often that saddens me deeply. I am talking about when someone hears the TRUTH, but doesn’t walk in it. The exact same thing happens EVERY time i see this circumstance! The person who heard, is in the very same place in 6 months, a year, or even longer. You see, when we hear the voice of Yehovah, and we don’t follow it, He will not give us more instruction! The true breath of Yehovah is speaking the same things to all who have ears to h...

What is Love?

1 John 2:3-6
By this we know that we have come to know Him, if we keep His commandments. The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of Elohim has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked.

Did he just say, “Whoever KEEPS his word, in HIM the LOVE OF ELOHIM IS PERFECTED??! What is Love? The bible defines it as OBEDIENCE to the WORD of the FATHER! John says “if you say you love HIM, but DO NOT obey HIM, you are a LIAR.” Remember, Yeshua’s commands ARE NOT NEW! They are the Fathers commands.

John 14:23,24
Yeshua answered and said to him, “If anyone lo...

What is His name? – A Follow Up

I decided to make a follow up post helping explain a little bit more, the previous entry I made. What is His name? It has become very obvious to me that this a “hot topic” in the religious world! My last post stated that we should be proclaiming His name, which is יהוה.

Nowhere did I state that we couldn’t refer to Him as Adonai. The problem with Adonai, is not the title, but the use of it. The rabbis taught the people long ago to read יהוה as אדוני, thus helping the enemy remove His name from our lips. This is not a bash on the rabbis. They were trying to save their tails in a time of horrible persecution. I cannot judge them. What I can do, is assess the situation with the text. The text has His name written out, יהוה, over 6800 times...

What is His name?

I find it interesting that a lot of people in the “messianic” movement are buying translations of the Scriptures that use the “NAME” of our creator, but yet still refer to Him as “lord” and various other titles. Don’t get me wrong, I am NOT bashing people in this post! I just know that the Scriptures plainly tell us MULTIPLE times to remember His name, to proclaim His name, to make His name set apart. The irony is, when we refer to Him as “the lord”, we are not only throwing Him in the pot with all other mighty ones, but we are NOT proclaiming or calling to remembrance, His name.

Please understand me! This is NOT a sacred name post. I am not trying to push your pronunciation to the curb! I’m saying, “ SPEAK HIS NAME!” His name is powerful! His name is wonderful! His name is the very nam...

Torah Ministry | Spirit of Eliyahu or Paul?

I have been doing a lot of thinking these past few days about how so many people HATE the prophetic voice of Yehovah. A passage from Isaiah (Yeshayahu) comes to mind…

For this is a rebellious people, FALSE sons, Sons who REFUSE to listen to the Torah of Yehovah; Who say to the seers, “You must not see visions”; And to the prophets, “You must not prophesy to us what is right, Speak to us pleasant words, Prophesy illusions. “Get out of the way, turn aside from the path, Let us hear no more about the Holy One of Yisrael.” (Isaiah 30:9-11)

Sadly, many today are trying to recreate the 1st century assembly, when in actuality we are in the times of Elijah (Eliyahu) the prophet! You have to remember that the 1st century assembly was around in a time when the temple was standing...

Learn Torah | Sabbatical years

Shemitah – Only for the land?

Beware of teachers who tell you that the Sabbatical year (Shemitah) is only for in the land. This is not true. Can we eat pork, and offer our daughters as prostitutes because we “are not in the land?” NO!! This is absurd. Sadly MANY people are following these modern day Balaams. These Balaams are telling you that those who are shouting from the rooftops are bringing in fear. They say things like, “YHWH doesn’t give a spirit of fear.” Remember, the enemy used scripture to tempt Yeshua in the wilderness, much like he is using scripture now, to tempt US IN THE WILDERNESS to not obey! WAKE UP!

Can we do all these things in the following passage since we are not in the land??

9“WHEN YOU ENTER THE LAND which Yehovah your Elohim gives you, you shall not learn to imitate the detestable things o...

Forced or Willful Captivity – Did Daniel Choose His Role?

I find it interesting, that in the past few months, I have heard more than one person justify their role in a lawless institution by using the stories of Daniel and Yosef. Just as the Ruach of YHVH speaks the same truth to ALL who hear His voice, so does ha satan and all his minions. PEOPLE! DANIEL AN YOSEF DID NOT CHOOSE TO BE IN CAPTIVITY! They were forced to be in bondage and then given favor from YHVH to lead a lifestyle of righteousness in the midst of lawlessness! They did NOT worship how their captor’s worshiped. They did NOT compromise Torah for religion. And “IF” there was anything they could not do according to Torah, it was because they were forced into captivity!

So, if you are in a leadership role in the christian institution, or any other religious entity, and you justify i...

Turn Up The Heat – Blow The Shofar

As I sat by the fire this morning, I thought about a conversation I had last night with my friend, and brother, Greg. We were talking about this false love that so rampantly deceives so many followers of Yeshua. The false love I am referring to sounds something like this.

“You are offending people because you are not sharing truth in love. You can’t just tell people that they are wrong! You have to do it in love.”

Greg and I were talking about the watchmen on the wall. We were wondering what it would be like if an enemy came in the middle of the night and the watchmen said…

“I can’t blow the shofar now, everybody is sleeping! How can I blow the shofar in a way that pleases everyone, and so everyone can hear the warning?”

Turn Up The Heat

Here is the simple answer…..

HISTORY – To Be, Or Not To Be

Sometimes we as humans, make things so difficult, we end up confused and tired. I am guilty of this I know, and I am guessing that the vast majority of us are as well. This blog is inspired by a conversation that I am having with a friend, about the validity of the New Testament. Is the New Testament valid? Is it Scripture? How do we know what Scripture is, and how do we apply our lives to Scripture? These are questions that are very important when we are TRULY seeking TRUTH. We must study to show ourselves approved. 

WHAT IS HISTORY?

History is simply events that happened in the past. In other words, history is a witness to the things that have happened. The more witness, the more accurate the accounts are, and the more valid the historical account...
