Coming to pass

      With the events happening around the word today, I need to write this. I really didn’t want to but I know the time is coming very near and we must be one with Yeshua and hear the Holy Spirit as the early church did.

      About 2 years ago, I had just moved into the new apartment house. My old apartment had structural issues that needed to be addressed and needed to be seriously updated. My uncle moved me to another one of his apartments. Great for my 73 yr old mom, everything is on one level instead of three now. Anyway I discussed with his son, Steve the deflection issues I saw and why I was concerned. While Steve updated the house, they found out only (2) 2X6’ were holding up the 2nd fl. It took him about 4 months to update the apartments. He fixed the deflection, knocked down some walls, & refinished the wood floors etc.

     While Steve was fixing the old apartment, I had a dream. I also always dream in color. I was in the old apartment helping my aunt & uncle’s new tenants. The apartment look different then when I had lived there. One thing I noticed that one of the walls were missing. The tenants were once Muslims who converted to Christianity seeking protection by the US. My mom came over asking me to convert a crochet design to paper for her. One of the refugees came in with a stoned look in his eyes. The Holy Spirit told me to leave now he is going to blow up the house. I grabbed my mom fast and said were late for the movies. As we were driving away. I heard and felt the blast then I woke up. In my Spirit I knew this will come to pass. Then Abba confirmed it. Several months later, my uncle invited me, mom and my aunts over to see the apartment. The main non load bearing wall was removed. The kitchen and the living room were opened. Everything was also painted white. As the same in my dream. It looked the same. When I came in, and saw everything, I remembered the dream.

     We need to be ready, to hear His Spirit. Just like the early church did, they followed Abba and obeyed Him. We are in the last days. Most of the church just wants the rapture. Really? What are we here for then? Just to go thru the motions and say Halleluyah once in a while? We must step up and become who Abba created us to be and stop being "Church People" and have true intimacy with Abba and hear His Spirit. He cereated us for a reason and knew it before we were born. Seek Him  and do His will before it is to late.
Psalm 139:1-7, 13, 15-16  For the leader. A psalm of David:
    "Adonai, you have probed me, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I stand up,you discern my inclinations from afar, you scrutinize my daily activities. You are so familiar with all my ways that before I speak even a word, Adonai, you know all about it already. You have hemmed me in both behind and in front and laid your hand on me. Such wonderful knowledge is beyond me, far too high for me to reach. Where can I go to escape your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? For you fashioned my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother’s womb. My bones were not hidden from you when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes could see me as an embryo, but in your book all my days were already written; my days had been shaped before any of them existed."

"His Life"

     I have often wonder why people get so close to the Lord but then just stop. As if nothing else needs to be done. They just start acting different and their walk starts to change. Their speech, mannerisms, view just changes and they have no clue that this is happening. They get saved then forget about the Lord. Things start to happen in their life. They think Abba has left them. They start compromising their walk as if to test the Lord to see if he cares and then either walk away or stay defeated and become bitter. This remindes me of Israel in Isaiah ch 9.
     Isaiah 9:1-16 "The people living in darkness have seen a great light; upon those living in the land that lies in the shadow of death, light has dawned. You have enlarged the nation and increased their joy; they rejoice in your presence as if rejoicing at harvest time, the way men rejoice when dividing up the spoil. For the yoke that weighed them down, the bar across their shoulders, and their driver’s goad you have broken as on the day of Midyan’s defeat. For all the boots of soldiers marching and every cloak rolled in blood is destined for burning, fuel for the fire. For a child is born to us, a son is given to us; dominion will rest on his shoulders, and he will be given the name Pele-Yo‘etz El GibborAvi-‘Ad Sar-Shalom (Wonder of a Counselor, Mighty God, Father of Eternity, Prince of Peace) in order to extend the dominion and perpetuate the peace of the throne and kingdom of David, to secure it and sustainit through justice and righteousness henceforth and forever. The zeal of Adonai-Tzva’ot will accomplish this. Adonai sent a word to Ya‘akov, and it has fallen on Isra’el. All the people know it, Efrayim and the inhabitants of Shomron. But they say in pride, in the arrogance of their hearts, “The bricks have fallen, but we will rebuild with cut stone; the sycamore-fig trees have been chopped down, but we will replace them with cedars.” So Adonai has raised up Retzin’s foes against him and spurred on his enemies Aram from the east, P’lishtim from the west; and they devour Isra’el with an open mouth. Even after all this, his anger remains, his upraised hand still threatens. Yet the people do not turn to the one striking them, they don’t seek Adonai-Tzva’ot. Therefore Adonai will cut off Isra’el’s head and tail, tall palm frond and lowly reed in a single day. The old and the honored are the head, while prophets teaching lies are the tail. For those leading this people lead them astray, and those led by them are destroyed. Therefore Adonai takes no joy in their young men and has no compassion on their orphans and widows; for everyone is ungodly and does evil, every mouth speaks foolishly."
     What did Israel do? Why is Abba so mad? As true believers, what do we really see Abba is doing to His own? What does He want to see His child do? What He wants, is for His kids to forsake their ways and to turn back to Him, getting closer and more intimate. 
     For Israel, serving Him became a chore. The same old same old. No growth, just going through the motions following the rules and regulations. Started relying on their own means, their own desires walking away from Abba. Fighting with their brother & sisters in the Lord and with the world.
     So who does this sound like? What do you think has happened? This can be not only be applied to us but The Church in general. Has Abba created division or unity? What happened to the Early Church? The same as Isreal but worse because we have the Holy Spirit in us now doing the work of Christ. More and more believers were added daily in the beginning but what started to happen? Intimacy started to go away. The "church" was taken out of us and started to become an institution, a replacement for Abba. The Holy Spirit was quench. People were relying on their own means to get to God. A glass ceiling of sorts was developed. The Holy Spirit was pushed away and their intimacy with the father became nonexistent.
     Fast forwarding to today, what do we see in "The Church"? The pastor replacing Abba, the Holy Spirit being quenched, rules and regulations to control. People getting to a level in their "walk" and they hit the "glass ceiling" and become stagnant. The growth has stopped. Being a believer now becomes a chore, the same old same old, no life flowing thru them. They have learned everything the institutional church has given them and say now what? Where is God?  What do I do now? They have no peace. They start to find other means to fill that "void" How do I grow now? I need to start a church, go on a mission, read more books on how to know God, start a new job, etc, etc. or just start falling away. Changing the way they preach, indifference to God, having an affair, stop believing & walking away from Him. 
     Sound familiar? What has to change? Our intimacy with the Father. Abba wants us to hear Him. Walk in His ways, following His Spirit, learning of His love just as a true father would. We need to humble our spirit so His Spirit can bring us Life. Pride will always quench His Spirit. Abba will never force His kids to follow Him but will always get our attention! It is up to us to have intimacy with Him and grow. Break that glass ceiling the institutional church has put up and seek the Father. Walking in His true love, hearing His Spirit, having Yeshua in us as His life. 
Hebrews 10:22-23 Therefore, let us approach the Holiest Place with a sincere heart, in the full assurance that comes from trusting — with our hearts sprinkled clean from a bad conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us continue holding fast to the hope we acknowledge, without wavering; for the One who made the promise is trustworthy. 

Galatians 5:24-26 Moreover, those who belong to the Messiah Yeshua have put their old nature to death on the stake, along with its passions and desires. Since it is through the Spirit that we have Life, let it also be through the Spirit that we order our lives day by day. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.

Complete Jewish Bible

I always love reading this version of the bible. For some reason it speaks to my heart better than the others. Here is a chapter I just read for my Sapphires daily bible verses. I read the whole chapter rather than just the verses. Enjoy :0)

Romans 12:1-21 I exhort you, therefore, brothers, in view of God’s mercies, to offer yourselves as a sacrifice, living and set apart for God. This will please him; it is the logical “Temple worship” for you. In other words, do not let yourselves be conformed to the standards of the ‘olam hazeh. Instead, keep letting yourselves be transformed by the renewing of your minds; so that you will know what God wants and will agree that what he wants is good, satisfying and able to succeed. For I am telling every single one of you, through the grace that has been given to me, not to have exaggerated ideas about your own importance. Instead, develop a sober estimate of yourself based on the standard which God has given to each of you, namely, trust. For just as there are many parts that compose one body, but the parts don’t all have the same function; so there are many of us, and in union with the Messiah we comprise one body, with each of us belonging to the others. But we have gifts that differ and which are meant to be used according to the grace that has been given to us. If your gift is prophecy, use it to the extent of your trust; if it is serving, use it to serve; if you are a teacher, use your gift in teaching; if you are a counselor, use your gift to comfort and exhort; if you are someone who gives, do it simply and generously; if you are in a position of leadership, lead with diligence and zeal; if you are one who does acts of mercy, do them cheerfully. Don’t let love be a mere outward show. Recoil from what is evil, and cling to what is good. Love each other devotedly and with brotherly love; and set examples for each other in showing respect. Don’t be lazy when hard work is needed, but serve the Lord with spiritual fervor. Rejoice in your hope, be patient in your troubles, and continue steadfastly in prayer. Share what you have with God’s people, and practice hospitality. Bless those who persecute you — bless them, don’t curse them! Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. Be sensitive to each other’s needs — don’t think yourselves better than others, but make humble people your friends. Don’t be conceited. Repay no one evil for evil, but try to do what everyone regards as good. If possible, and to the extent that it depends on you, live in peace with all people. Never seek revenge, my friends; instead, leave that to God’s anger; for in the Tanakh it is written,“Adonai says, ‘Vengeance is my responsibility; I will repay.’” On the contrary,“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.For by doing this, you will heapfiery coals of shame on his head.” Do not be conquered by evil, but conquer evil with good.

"Jesus is Alive!"

Jesus Is Alive
By Ron Kenoly

Jesus is alive
Death has lost it's victory
And the grave has been denied
Jesus lives forever
He's alive! He's alive!
He's the Alpha and Omega
The first and last is He
The curse of sin is broken
And we have perfect liberty
The lamb of God has risen
He's alive, He's alive
Jesus is alive!

2 Corinthians 5:17-21 Therefore, if anyone is united with the Messiah, he is a new creation — the old has passed; look, what has come is fresh and new! And it is all from God, who through the Messiah has reconciled us to himself and has given us the work of that reconciliation, which is that God in the Messiah was reconciling mankind to himself, not counting their sins against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore we are ambassadors of the Messiah; in effect, God is making his appeal through us. What we do is appeal on behalf of the Messiah, “Be reconciled to God! God made this sinless man be a sin offering on our behalf, so that in union with him we might fully share in God’s righteousness.”

"Deep is calling to deep"

Psalm 42:7-8 "Deep is calling to deep at the thunder of your waterfalls; all your surging rapids and waves are sweeping over me. By day Adonai commands his grace, and at night his song is with me as a prayer to the God of my life."

The love language of God

Living water


   There are so many people out there who are broken. Their life can be a running diatribe of who has hurt them and how bad their life was but with that, what is there to gain? Sure for a moment you feel vindication. You were able to lash out at the person who hurt you because someone finally listened but by doing this, all you are doing is just adding animosity between you and the person who hurt you.
      What people don’t realize, what they really lost was love. They had given love and received back broken love. How do we get real love back? By receiving God’s love. Let me explain, if you had a balloon filled to the top with water and people came by and took their pin and stab it every time they hurt you in your life, little by little, the water in the balloon would eventually run out and the balloon would dry up. The person’s heart has become hardened. The love they had is now gone and now they are just going thru the motions. Trying to find other means to fill up that balloon but it is just temporary because it will just flow back out the pin holes. Also just as a person who never got poked, their water becomes dead, never giving and flowing, bottled up and their life becomes stagnate.
    What has to change is to have Yeshua’s living water running thru us. His living water never runs out, never becomes stagnate and has life. When we accept God’s love, Abba fills the balloon back up with His love, the emptiness will be gone. This is the only way to ever become whole again. The balloon never empties, if we keep in His presence. The balloon will also never stop leaking. This is profound because we need the trials or else we will never have any pin holes and never grow in the Lord. What should come out of us now, is God’s love. So when persecution comes and it will, when you get poked, Yeshua’s living water will now flow out of you. Stay connected to Abba, learn of His love and you will flow with His living water.    
John 4:10, 13-14 Yeshua answered her, “If you knew God’s gift, that is, who it is saying to you, ‘Give me a drink of water,’ then you would have asked him; and he would have given you living water. Everyone who drinks this water will get thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I will give him will never be thirsty again! On the contrary, the water I give him will become a spring of water inside him, welling up into eternal life!”

Back in the 90's Christian rock bands were gaining acceptance. The only group I liked was Petra and their album "No Doubt" then I found out they started the year I was born and my jaw dropped when I found out they did the color song enjoy :0)

In His heart

   One day, about 17 years ago, I was in my room reading Luke 22. When I got to verse 60, I was brought into the Spirit. Yeshua had me where Peter was standing. Peter had just denied Him. I saw Yeshua on the opposite side and I could feel His hurt and pain of being denied. I was one with Him. I also felt His hurt of when I had let Him down. Then I was back in my room again. I was so overwhelmed with emotion as if someone filled a container, I just sat there and cried. 
   You see, Yeshua knows our pain. We are one with Him, you feel what He feels and He feels what you feel. He wants us to know that. There is not one issue He's not aware of. Trust in Him, He's our ally. Ready to support and helps us in our lives.

"Oh Lord, you're beautiful"

"Oh Lord, you're beautiful"
By Keith Green

Oh Lord, you're beautiful,
Your face is all I seek,
For when your eyes are on this child,
Your grace abounds to me.

Oh Lord, you're beautiful,
Your face is all I seek,
For when your eyes are on this child,
Your grace abounds to me.

 I wanna take your words and shine it all around.
But first help me just, to live it Lord.
And when I'm doing well, help me to never seek a crown.
For my reward is giving glory to you.

Oh Lord, please light the fire,
That once burned bright and clear.
Replace the lamp of my first love,
That burns with holy fear.

I want to take your words and shine it all around.
But first help me just, to live it Lord.
And when I'm doing well, help me to never seek a crown.
For my reward is giving glory to you.

Oh Lord, you're beautiful,
Your face is all I seek,
For when your eyes are on this child,
Your grace abounds to me.

"...But by my Spirit!"

The Holy Spirit movie has made an impact on the christian community, I wished for the better but obviously not. A lot of people believe it's spiritual connotations as dismissive rather than believing what is happening. It was a good documentary that followed the Holy Spirit and His leadings. Not man's ways of "getting people saved by their efforts." Showing people what it is to be lead by the Spirit. In one part, a English accented person was witnessing to people saying works are dead only the word of God can be trusted. Last time I checked, it was the Holy Spirit flowing thru the "early church" Christians, healing people not us. So what are they trying to say? The Holy Spirit is doing nothing today? Heaven forbid! It is by His works we see the glory of God. It is not just about knowing the word of God and having faith but works too. In James 2:14-17 "What good is it, my brothers, if someone claims to have faith but has no actions to prove it? Is such “faith” able to save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food, and someone says to him, “Shalom! Keep warm and eat hearty!” without giving him what he needs, what good does it do? Thus, faith by itself, unaccompanied by actions, is dead." 
     The church today is so off the mark of where Abba wants us to be with Him. The church says "But we save people, we feed them, we tell them what they need to know." Abba wants US to have a personal relationship with Him not the church! We don't do anything! Abba & His Spirit does it! Yeshua followed the heart of Abba and that's what we are suppose to do and not follow our will & needs. We need to mature in Yeshua, hear the heart of Abba and follow where the Spirit will guide us. He knows what is in people's hearts. When was the last time you knew what was in someone's nefesh? That's why He needs to guide us. If we would just do that, how efficient do you think we would be? A lot less time would be wasted then us running around in circles.
     When I was witnessing in downtown Albany, NY with another church, my church didn't do it at the time, we would go up & down Central Ave then the side streets. The second time I went with them, we approached a group of adults. Our group started to pray & talk to them. There was this older gentleman off to the side sweeping in front of his home. He was of a different race then the group. His countenance was angry & sad, being excluded from the group once again. The Spirit started to nudging me, wanting me to go over to him. I did by myself after several nudgings. When I gave him a tract, his face lit up. Most of the area around us was their ethnic group but I started noticing they would only go to their race. After several times going with them, they wanted me to start using only their tracts w/ their church name on it. There are so many people out there with hurting hearts. Why do we shut ourselves up in our churches, ignoring the unbelievers? One church, in how many that are in downtown Albany, would actually witnessed to people and then be bias on skin color? Auggh! What's wrong with this picture?
     In times of old, unbelievers knew of Abba, the God of the Jews. You had to become Jewish to be with Him. Now, with Yeshua dying on the cross, all can have His Spirit in them. This is great news! What will it take for people to let the Spirit lead them? A true personal relationship with Him! Abba is a jealous God and will not share His glory with anyone. People need to seek and hear Him. It is possible to hear Him, this is not sorcery, satan will not help, will not heal, will not do the things of God. People have lost this in the church age, seeking Abba by other means. We need to do what Yeshua did on this earth. He followed Abba's Spirit, healed the sick, ministered to the poor, helped the hurting and the lost. He did this mostly to the Jewish nation but we have The Holy Spirit in us now and we are to go to the whole world following the Spirit for His Glory.
Zechariah 4:6 Then he said to me, “Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts

John 16:13-15 However, when the Spirit of Truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own initiative but will say only what he hears. He will also announce to you the events of the future. He will glorify me, because he will receive from what is mine and announce it to you. Everything the Father has is mine; this is why I said that he receives from what is mine and will announce it to you.

"The Perfect Stranger"

     In the movie "The Perfect Stranger" by Jefferson Moor, he is really clever on what he does. He use the book "Dinner with a Perfect Stranger: An Invitation Worth Considering" by David Gregory but used the wife as the main character instead. Really good movie that explains what it is to believe as A true believer. It also brings an emotional aspect to the story that wasn't as present in the book. David Gregory's third book "Night With a Perfect Stranger: The Conversation That Changes Everything" is about how to walk as a believer.
     People go to church, hear the message and then file out to do it all over again the next week. They get to a certain point in their walk and just stop, thinking they have reached the point of knowing their "God of religion" to what their church believes. "Sheepeople". They get saved but never grow in the Spirit. In Revelation 3:15-16 “To the church in Laodicea, Yeshua says “I know what you are doing: you are neither cold nor hot. How I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm, neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of my mouth!" the madness needs to end. The sheep are being led to fail, falling of a cliff in droves. They must have a personal relationship with Abba not a religion. We need to help those who don't know His Spirit by first hearing what the Spirit wants us to do. He knows what's in their heart. To take away what binds them from doing His will, to help them overcome and break free, seeking His heart, His will, knowing His love for them.

Here are a few scene's I combined from the movie;

I forgave sins, I accepted worship,
I healed the Sick, I raised the Dead,
I demonstrated my power over nature.
I said, I existed before Abraham, and I was one
with the Father, and the giver of eternal life.
Now, who does that sound like to you?
Just because you claim to be God,
doesn't mean that you are.
No, but it does mean,
that I wasn't just another religious leader.
You only have 3 options:
(1) either I was telling the truth;
(2) I was lying; or (3) I was insane.
Good religious leaders don't claim to be God.
People distort the truth mainly because
they reject this proof, they were given.
And what proof is that?
That I rose from the dead...
You are sitting there, obviously alive...
If you claim, that you were once dead,
it would be pretty hard for me
to prove otherwise.
Good point!

You know, these things you are telling me...
I've never really heard them explained before.
I know.
My message got all jumbled along the way.
Church leadership, power structures...
People were so anxious to
reduce God to a set of rules.
Is it rules, what He is it all about?
God is all about joining people to Himself.
That's how people were originally designed:
To have God's very life within them.
And without it, you are like a
new Mercedes with no engine.
It may look good on the outside, but it won't work,
because it's missing the most important part.
Then if that's what Christianity is all about,
then why don't the Christians just say so?
Because a lot of them really don't understand.
They haven't listened to what I said, even though
my words are right there in front of them.
Why doesn't God just show Himself to people?
Then what would you have Him do?

You were made for so much more than this.
You're so afraid, God is gonna steal your fun,
but you got it backwards...
You are like a little kid,
who doesn't want to go to Disney World,
because she is having too much fun
making mud-pies by the curb.
There's no adventure quite like being hooked up
with the Creator of the Universe.

"The Agape factor"

    Lately I have been reading and thinking about the millennium reign and what Abba will have us do as believers. I'm sure starting will be just like Noah and his sons, we will be fruitful & multiply but now, Yeshua will be with us. Everyone will be saved, know who He is and worship Him but I wonder how long it will last. It only took a few hundred years to turn away from Abba before. Will we share the same fate or will those who come against Yeshua, come out before or after satan is released?
     Then I started to think how could people be so deceived when Yeshua is right there on the earth. There will be people that will reject Him and I think, why? They know who He is, know His ways, know His & Abba's love. So how could they choose not to be with Him? Will it be their sin? Ananias and Sapphira lack of maturity brought judgment. To whome much is given much is required. We will know and be responsible for what we do, nothing will be hidden. Even with all that, why would someone who knows Abba's love, reject Him? Could it be because of Agape love? A person not wanting to give selfless, sacrificial, unconditional love to people? Will this be something that will still plague us even in the millennium reign? We have free will. We can choose it or not but the sad thing is we need to have the agape love now. Yeshua told us to follow Him. Do His works. We have the Spirit in us, we are without excuse? Maybe here, we have that learning curve but in the millennium reign, we will need to do it. Better to be able to give agape love now then trying to learn it later.
