“A TEACHER!”


5778a3d60ba8b2061a8c913543d9761c6720369376888174913.jpg

For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. But after that, the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Titus 3:3-4 

PRE-AMBLE by Robert
These teachings are from the Apostle Paul to the Disciple Titus on who he should ordinate, I am using Matthew Henry’s (1662 – 1774) commentary: “The matter of ministers’ teaching:, namely, those before mentioned: not Jewish fables and traditions, but the truths and duties of the gospel, of avoiding sin, and living soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world. Observe, Ministers in their preaching must keep close to the word of God. If any man speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God, (1 Peter 4:11,) and not the figments and inventions of his own brain.
This article is revealing what it is going to take for all to be effective teachers of 97508e257c7eea9aec8ed30eaa05d89f3563963924950639746.jpgYeshua’s word. In this oratory from Paul to Titus, we can see as individuals the measure of our walk. Some will say, those instructions were for Bishops and officers of the Assemblies, not the members, as there is less required of them. Leaders are to set the scene and teach accordingly. Perhaps if you listen closely to these individuals you will hear the worldly teachings that God is Love and forgives all.
We are going to find the important, one individual can play in setting the stage for each individual within the Assembly. There will be more knowledge of using one’s faith after learning how to deepen it. The importance of our demonstration is revealed for us to use as a reflection in the mirror of self-examination of our walk as an example.

OPENING PRAYER by Robert

Heavenly Father, bring our lives into unison with Yeshua’s teachings and guidance a795c9ca992c5e12ebbc83941263d05f7580049412187159171.jpgout of the darkness ahead. I pray Father not one believes they have all the answers and humble themselves before you Father. I ask Father that you release discernment and recognition unto all of our minds, that we may be safe and strengthened as we go forward in Your name. Lord bring us insight and courage to stand as bright Beacons drawing many unto your light in the days, weeks, months, and years ahead. Fill us with your wisdom that we might share it as your love and compassion for those lost, confused, as well as lacking in their relationship with You Lord. We pray this in your name Yeshua AMEN AND AMEN

OPENING STATEMENT by Robert

Someone queried me why I continue releasing articles as they noticed there are not many reading them. They also stated there are not many in the group or as friends on Face book. My reply went as follows. I shared what as an individual sharing Yeshua’s word should strive to compare himself to, that which Titus ascribed a Bishop should be. Please note: From Titus 1:8-10 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy temperate. Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, especially they of the circumcision. Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake? Titus also warned in Titus 1:14 Not giving heed to Jewish Fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.

One thing I found, in all the research over the last 12 years. One person devoted to their walk, holding fast to their passionate beliefs, can inspire great numbers of people. People, they may never meet but will have an influence on, through their dedicated determination.

SHEPHERD 4Bringing one soul to a relationship with Yeshua, to me is, spiritually sitting with Yeshua, at the well, and as an obedient servant, fetching a drink for God’s children who are spiritually thirsty for truth. But don’t know about the living water which will quench their spiritual thirst.

I am shown through my, newly found gift of, eyes of faith, not only am I able to see our Lord working in the lives of His children but witness, angels rejoicing. when one child’s soul is turned to God Luke 15:10.

When it is recognized, we are constantly engaged in a spiritual battle, “one dedicated advanced guard, one Fisher of Men, one Disciple, one dedicated believer.” Demonstrating the power of true “imboldened faith.” Will inspire those who hold to faith, there is another level of faith they, too, can draw on, which brings on boldness to present their walk as a “dedicated victory.” 

When we encounter those without the spirit, keep in mind they are God’s children who are lost and are reacting to what they have been shown by Satan is pleasurable. We are all children in Gods eyes and must be seen and approached as His children.

CLOSING PRAYER by Robert

haiku stairs, hawaii9052808768469728797..jpg Father in heaven, hear this petition placed before your throne. Strengthen those who have listened to your Son so they might as he did in your eyes deny himself and did not fear taking up his cross in your name Lord. Build within them Father the knowledge of your promises your word and oath to draw them to walk in righteousness as Yeshua has laid out for them. Fill them with your compassion so they may become a reflection of your light demonstrating your teachings as the Shepherds you desire them to be This I pray in the name of Yeshua, Amen and, Amen. 

CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert 

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

This sentence raised a deep question, I recognized our Father was speaking about Yeshua being sacrificed. The question was how did those in the world after Yeshua was no longer present appear to those children who Paul revealed to Titus who 6d68b839246e8a926e8c6327d7bba1c9705398602012340697.jpglike, Ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another?” 

What special person was it, who appeared in our lives, and presented that cup which held the living water for us to sip on? Had God touched them to be a Fisher of Men, A Beacon on the Hill, A Disciple, or just a dedicated soul sharing the Living Water? What demonstration of their walk brought us into the light broke the scales from our eyes, removed the plugs from our ears, opened our mind to receive the truth and draw us from Satan’s imprisonment?

When I look at God’s children who remain in the world under Satan’s captivity I pray for the Lord to allow me to see what it is that has captured their souls. I base that prayer on the information the Holy Spirit revealed to me earlier in this article. God sees all of us as His children some in His Flock as sheep flourishing in the green pastures He has placed us in. 

45854a6dbf003adc528f9f344296728c7411874474719898561.jpgThe other of God’s children have been lead by a false spirit into the wilderness, giving Satan an advantage as the tempter. As he has them alone no friend to assist in prayer when he places his temptations before them. Observe, in an earlier article, we were shown our vulnerability comes due to ignorance of our Enemies strengths. 

This knowledge is important, as we become the kindness and love of God appearing in their lives, knowledge which temptation the Tempter has placed before them. Knowing, what places so much fulfilment in their lives, they willingly turn their backs on God? Is it one of the three basics in man’s foundation without God, Money, or Health, and finally Vanity (the world’s opinion)? Or is it all three or some other combination which allows them to reject God’s teachings? 

As people, It is bad not to do good ourselves; but it is worse to hinder those who would do good. Those cautions and counsels are most likely to be accepted, which are seasoned with love. Follow that which is good, for he that doeth good, as delighting therein, is born of God. Evil-workers vainly pretend or boast acquaintance with God. Let us not follow that which is proud, selfish, and of bad design, though the example may be given by persons of rank and power; but let us be followers of God, and walk-in love, after the example of our Lord.

Have you ever been around sheep? I have and because I have and understand why PEOPLE 502God calls us His sheep. Amazing I watched the flock stand by a pool of water and not one of them went to drink until one was lead to the pool to drink than the rest followed. I saw how stubborn and unmoving they can be. As well how at times they are oblivious to the danger which surrounds them. I witnessed with a show of strength on your part, how easy it was to lead them into an area you wanted them to be. I observed once they were in a pasture how contented they were just to graze on the grass because it was green and lush.

I pondered on this thought process, we as humans believe once we’re educated we have obtained a new level of understanding which gives us independence and control of our lives. What comes to mind is Romans 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

DOMESTICATED ANIMAL 014Our Father sees us as sheep, and we wonder why? Here is where our earlier observation, of one of the flock, having to be lead to the pool to drink is revealing. 

Which pool and pasture are those being lead going to? The next question is, [Whose] leading them to the pool? What is this leader’s agenda, and where have these leaders obtained their wisdom from? What story did they share, which influenced some of the flock to follow them to that particular pool and pasture? 

It is shown Yeshua sat at a well and revealed to a Samaritan woman there are two types of water to be obtained one where we are sustained in the flesh, but will always need that water. The other is “living water,” which quenches our thirst forever. He even identifies how and who you can obtain this water from. 

Our earlier observation about the sheep being stubborn and unmoving comes into play here. As in John 4:11, Sir, you don’t have anything to use to get water, and the well is deep. In John 4:14 reveals to the woman who can lead her to this water. “But those who drink the water that I will give them will never become thirsty again. In fact, the water, I will give them will become in them a spring that gushes up to eternal life.” 

So, here we are through this woman’s next statement in John 4:15 seeing how through her passive innocence like the sheep is unaware of the spiritual danger she is walking in. “Sir give me this water! Then I won’t get thirsty or have to come here to get water.” 

3a698a70695510bf9e7dbed658aa989d1338777743282784931.jpgThere are two pools to drink from. And as such there are two who lead those desiring to drink to those pools. Here, we see the pastures of green grass flourishing in both, and when we look into these pastures, we see one where the sheep graze in contentment, and occasionally one is lead to the pool as an example for the others to drink. The other pasture is lush and green, and the flock grazes leisurely. However, we notice there is no pool, yet the flock is content and continues to graze. 

The answer to the initial question is who is leading the sheep to the pool and what story was used to convince those of the flock to follow this leader to the pasture with the pool. The caution here is as we become learned, we do not become easily lead by those who want to as trusting sheep bring us to their pool to drink from continuously.

In our wisdom, if we as a part of the flock, recognize as a one of the sheep, there are those who don’t need to go to the pool to drink, and perhaps check with them, WILDERNESS 009“why?”

It is a great pleasure when one of the sheep in the pasture recognizes I no longer go to the pool and queries “why.” When we share how the spring within sustains us and the peace it brings for us to be in this Shepherd’s pasture. Able to graze leisurely without fear knowing there is nothing to fear and there will be even greener pastures to graze in. 

I through the “Eyes of Faith,” now see my Shepherd watching over His flock of sheep, am filled with overwhelming joy as I see and hear the angels rejoicing as another sheep joins the flock because I shared from my spring that they may never thirst again and will graze in peace. 

2868735889749cc41daf2da58f0003123195518346162872989.jpgRemember, these messages are given by a humble servant obedient0103db0c899cd0b8b69538e2367c4fdd unto our Lord Yeshua as a “Watchman.” This I pray for all. ”Our Heavenly Father brings us to the river which bringeth forth fruit so we may partake of its sustenance and be filled spiritually with nurturing wisdom, and humble dedication in service to Yeshua.“ “Blessings to All.” As you go forward in peace, knowledge, and strength. In the name of Yeshua, we pray Amen and Amen.

FINDING YOURSELF IN THE WILDERNESS!


When we find ourselves in different life situations which spiritually appear as wilderness, there is an extreme example we can draw on. Knowing that trouble in our regular day to day life can be overcome by relying faithfully on the “words of God.” Thus being proven through the temptations Satan put upon Yeshua who relied upon the words of God in faith knowing His Father was with him. Yeshua knew that when he spoke “man should not live by bread alone” His Father was right there for Him. Yeshua knew when stated “we should not tempt God” His Father was there for Him. Yeshua knew when he rebuked Satan His Father was there with him. 

Each temptation was a measure of Yeshua’s Faith as it would be for me, you or all in the world, believer or non-believer. I recognize these are personal temptations for Yeshua. However, I too can use my faith in the words of God in any situation presented or threatened to be given in the name of evil we need to choose how to face it either spiritually or physically.     

This article is a followup to the message we received to do an audit of our faith and know where it is we stand within that Faith. We have been warned that an in-depth testing of our Faith the teachings we follow and those who are teaching is about to be upon us shortly. Thus finding yourself in the “Desert” as the saying goes being fired to see what metal you’re made of and being purified. We find ourselves currently in a spiritual desert being presented many temptations and fair speeches, and false teachings which will if accepted eat away like gangrene. If we have taken the warning to heart and conducted the audit, we will have an indication of where we stand in our faith and its’ depth and will also know how to use it against those various temptations and tribulations we’re about to be faced with.

The question, “have you been honest” about what you have found or are you placating yourself to satisfy the four fleshly desires Pride, Vanity, Luxury, and Sensuality? Here a careful assessment must be exercised on the part of all who have heard and proceeded with the audit.  I firmly believe we need to go back to the basics of our belief: https://i0.wp.com/romboughrobert.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/wp-1489857334080.jpg?ssl=1&w=450

 wp-1489857334080.jpg

So in returning to the basics, the Ten Commandments we now have a blueprint to use, so we stay in the spirit and not fall into the fleshly walk of Pride, Vanity, Luxury, and Sensuality. 

Each commandment is a guideline an example “Neither shall thou steal.” What immediately comes to mind is physical items which might be possessed. We need to go deeper with all the commandments and recognize; there can be theft in the spirit as well. The best example I can cite here is adultery which can be committed in the heart Matthew 5:28, But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. I believe the Lord is asking us to consider our Spiritual actions as part of our audit not just what we recognize as physical deeds. The commandments are the foundation by which we truly need to build our walk with Yeshua. The teachings of the Holy Spirit through the Scriptures will develop our Faith and will light the Lord’s footsteps for us to follow. They will assist in the defining of our position with Yeshua.

Remember I stated in the first article this audit is a personal one, as is our walk with Yeshua since no two walks will be the same nor should they be.  However, the resulting ending to those walks will have the same results judgment before God’s throne whether believer or nonbeliever.

Yeshua details the blessings one will receive spiritually if we place our foot in His footprints but also cautions what to expect if you do choose to follow His teachings and proceed in His footsteps (Matthew 5:10-11) Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. v11) Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. So armed with this knowledge when doing your audit understand the deeper you go with it, the greater the revile is going to be but as well the blessings. Here is a look at what is to come for those who do not walk with the Lord Spiritually. Including those who believe they are walking in Salvation but have not confirmed their walk is in the Spirit and not the flesh. They may find when the temptations and tribulations confront them they are walking in Pride, Vanity, Luxury, and Sensuality which the Father sees as a form of personal idolatry.  

The Lord speaks about those who do not walk Spiritually, in Ezekiel 14:1-8 and in 2Peter 2:1-22. Here is a glimpse in 2Peter 2:22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his vomit again, and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire. 

Initially, I wondered why the Lord had included all in this message through preceding verses it is becoming manifest His love for all is apparent yet we know many will miss finding it.

John Gill (23 Nov 1697 – 14 Oct 1771) English Baptist writer and theologian identifies those who would be a godly man according to the notation of the word is one that has received grace and mercy of the Lord, as pardoning mercy, justifying and adopting grace; and who has principles of grace, goodness, and holiness, wrought in him; who fears the Lord, and serves him acceptably, with reverence and godly fear, and sorrows for sin, after a godly sort; who loves the Lord, and hopes and believes in him; who are regenerated and sanctified by the Spirit of God, and is a true worshipper of God and lives in all holy conversation and godliness; and particularly is “beneficent”, “kind”, and “merciful” unto men: such may be said “cease” when there are but a few of them; when their number is greatly reduced either by death or when such have seemed, and have been thought to be so, prove otherwise: in view of which, the Psalmist prays for help and salvation.

Matthew Henry identifies what would be considered making the times bad. Ask the children of the world what it is in their account that makes the times bad, and they will tell you, Scarcity of money, the decay of trade, and the desolations of war make the times dangerous. But the Scripture lays the badness of the times upon causes of another nature. We see those causes described by Matthew Henry in 2Timothy 3: Men love to gratify their own lusts, more than to please God and do their duty. When every man is eager for what he can get and anxious to keep what he has, this makes men dangerous to one another. When men do not fear God, they will not regard man. When children are disobedient to their parents, that makes the times perilous. Men are unholy and without the fear of God, because unthankful for the mercies of God. We abuse God’s gifts if we make them the food and fuel of our lusts.   

CLOSING COMMENTS by Robert

When you look at the definitions and see how they possibly apply to today’s society, it is not difficult to understand why Yahweh is calling us back to His laws. I see one man from the 17th Century describing what a God loving, fearing person should be. The second specifying what a person who is walking contrary to God’s calling would appear as. Both I believe what they were identifying describes our society and its current walk with God. They unknowingly I am surmising have identified what Political Correctness has brought us in 2Timothy 3: For men shall be lovers of their selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful. Unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof; from such turn away.

Now looking at this description, I can see our modern day politicians, country leaders journalists, environmentalists, Judges, those caught up in environmental movements in this group, some of the leaders in the Worldly churches, but more than anything many of the population. 

Remember I am just the messenger and obedient servant of our Lord Yeshua. I publish what he shows me I believe even though we have been called to clean up our act and get back to walking with Yahweh in his laws being saved by Grace.

God’s blessings to all and may he bring the spirits of discernment and understanding upon all who read so what is revealed will be nourishment for your spirits and food for the soul.

Amen

Robert

ARE YOU A BEACON OR A FLICKER OF LIGHT?


But the path of the just is as the shining light that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. (Proverbs 4:18)Transportation 0002

PRE-AMBLE by Robert 

I open this article as I have others with a prayer to our Father in thanks for those who answered His call to War as prayer warriors. And those who are seeking the narrow path to eternal life and peace?

OPENING PRAYER by Robert

I pray Father you continue to keep them safe and strengthen their fervor to succeed in overturning the evil before us remove all the spirits of confusion and division working through our great nations. Lord, I pray you will further deepen the hedge ANGEL & TRUMPET 2around our leaders and will continue removing the spirits of confusion, strife and discord from their minds and filling them with discernment and wisdom and a peaceful demeanor. I pray, Father, for those doing battle in your Name that you would continue raining down insight, understanding, and an intense fervor to uphold your victories and your words. I pray this in the name of Yeshua Amen and Amen. 

CLOUDS & SKY 056Amongst all the craziness being displayed over the last 18 months, there has been a dark pall building over the USA and Canada and their peoples. As the debates take place, you can sense the darkness descending over North America. The leaders and some pundits realize their country and the very principles it’s founded on are being challenged, but are unable to discern by whom or why. James 3:16 for where envying and strife are, there is confusion and every evil work. 

THE FIRST TRUMPETER’S CALL

TRUMPET 15A shroud of darkness has taken hold of the people with its many hidden influences and temptations which are manifesting into reality; adding to the various Spiritual battles already being waged. The way through the darkness will be painful as many won’t have a light for discernment and guidance. Many will succumb to the hidden temptations within the shroud which has enveloped the multitudes.  

It is essential at this time all followers of Yeshua come together. And realize their walk is going to be ever so important. As shown in Isaiah 30:17 “One PEOPLE 652thousand shall flee at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five shall ye flee: till ye be left as a beacon upon the top of a mountain, and as an ensign on a hill.  

Our support has to be guided and aimed at helping each other as an army of prayer warriors; adhering to the teachings shown in 1 Peter 2:13-17. 

Matthew Henry’s (1662 – 1774) Commentary lays out a plan “A Christian conversation must be honest, which it cannot be if there is not a just and careful discharge of all relative duties: the apostle here treats of these distinctly. Regard to these functions is the will of God, consequently, the Christians duty, and the way to silence the base slanders of ignorant and foolish men. Christians must endeavor, in all relations, to behave aright, that they do not make their liberty a cloak or covering for any wickedness, or for the neglect of duty; but they must remember that they are servants of God.

KNIGHT 14Above is a formula which makes us Beacons on the mountain which can be used to bring forward the words given to us in Joshua 23:10 “One man of you shall chase a thousand for the Lord your God, he it is that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you.

HERE ENDS THE TRUMPETER’S CALL

The days of darkness truly are upon the World and its citizens. As followers of LANTERN 1Yeshua, we need to become BEACONS from afar that our brothers and sisters can bring peace back to their country and lives. My question to all followers of  “Yeshua,”  World Wide are you a Beacon or just a flicker of light?  Having won one battle and another looms before us as Prayer Warriors we must Identify ourselves as standing on the mountains as Beacons and not just flickers of light. 

CLOSING PRAYER by Robert

Heavenly Father I come before thee as a humble servant and place before you, your Prayer Warriors and ask that you would strengthen them guide them protect them and most of all fill them with discernment that they may go forward in your name as bright Beacons illuminating the path to peace and eternal life. Amen and Amen 

CLOSING COMMENTS by Robert 

Brothers and Sisters lift up your prayers begin the battle let your Beacons shine brightly so many might find the path to peace, unity and Eternal life. Discover within your walk the strength Yeshua demonstrated for us to understand what it means to be a “Modern Day Disciple”. Seek the wisdom God has offered us through the Holy Spirit which provides Yeshua’s light through his words, teachings and comforting. Know, we enter into battle each day by reflecting God’s light to attract those in servitude to Satan and offering them freedom and eternal life.

Remember, these articles are from a devoted servant of Yeshua as a Watchman doing His bidding to deliver His warnings. May our Father be with you bless you as you go forward in His name. Go forward bravely but as wise as a serpent and gentle as a dove. 

Robert

In Him Do I Trust!


A QUESTION

For those about to read this scripture from David in Psalms 16: 1-10. Is your trust as deep as David’s when he flew to God’s protection from the evils of the world? Does your trust in Yeshua a confident one like David’s was (Psalms 16:1 Preserve me, O God!?

Can you pray this in the same confidence that God will keep you from the deaths and especially the sin, to which you are continually being exposed? Can you say like David for in thee, and only in thee, do I put my trust. 

How many understand it is the duty and interest of all to subject our selves to Yeshua who as Adonai signifies My stayer, the strength of my heart. This has to be done with our souls? In this Psalm, we find David showing our Covenanting with God must be a heart-work, that is, all within us must be employed and engaged.

What this means, those who have avowed themselves to the Lord should often put themselves in mind of what they have done. Knowing you have said unto Yeshua, “Thou art my Lord.” Say it again, stand on it, abide by it, and never unsay it.  You have said it? Take comfort in it and always live up to it. And keep your eyes fixed on him then you can know in your heart when you say you trust in him it is really from the heart, not just lip service.

What becomes aware is we are not honouring ourselves, but are in the service for the saints (Psalms 16:2-3). The depth of our devotion to Yeshua, like his devotion to the Father, we like Yeshua must be good and do good and do not expect happiness without goodness.

Whatever goodness is in us or is done by us, we must humbly acknowledge that it extends not to God so we cannot pretend to merit anything by it. The reality to all of this, God has no need for our services he is not benefited by them, nor can they add anything to his infinite perfection and blessedness.

God is infinitely above us, and happy without us, and whatever good we do it is all from him so that we are indebted to him, not he to us. So if God is ours, we must, for his sake, extend our goodness to the saints in the world for what is done to them he is pleased to take us as done to himself, having constituted them his receivers.

It is not enough for us to delight in the saints, but, as there is occasion. our goodness must extend to them we must be ready to show them the kindness they need, distribute to their necessities, and abound in the labour of love to them. 

God disclaims the worship of all false gods and all communion with their worshippers, Psalms (16:4). He reads the doom of idolaters, who hasten after another God, being mad upon their idols, and pursuing them as eagerly as if they were afraid they would escape from them.

Their sorrows shall be multiplied, both by the judgments they bring upon themselves from the true God whom they forsake and by the disappointment, they will meet within the false gods they embrace.

Like David who repeats the solemn choice he made of God for his portion and happiness (Psalms 16:5), take ourselves the comfort of our choice (Psalms 16:6), and give God the glory of it (Psalms 16:7). In its gracious exercises, this is the language of a devout and pious soul. 

beautiful-cliff-clouds-16594386576071401524423683.jpg

Remember, these messages are given by a humble servant obedient to our Lord 0103db0c899cd0b8b69538e2367c4fddYeshua as a “Watchman.” I pray for all. ”Our Heavenly Father brings us to the river which bringeth forth fruit so we may partake of its sustenance and be filled spiritually with nurturing wisdom, and humble dedication in service to Yeshua.“ “Blessings to All.”  As you go forward in peace, knowledge, and strength. In the name of Yeshua, we pray Amen and Amen.

“WHO WILL THREAD THE NEEDLE?”


wp-1579506371992194960581351642772.jpg

PRE-AMBLE by Robert

Having, been shown about passivity and how to deal with it, the Holy Spirit is now bringing us to a new level of discernment and decision-making. We will be brought to a position that is going to not only challenge the depth of our walk but as well our profession of Faith. Peter in the last article “NOW THE WORK BEGINS” where he is speaking about faith and the many different levels of those professing faith clearly show’s many are trying to fool God

Matthew Henry (1662 – 1774) comments on Peter’s teachings (1Peter 1:1). “According to the foreknowledge of God the Father, and here as having obtained precious faith in our Lord Yeshua for the faith here mentioned is vastly different from the false faith of the heretic, and the feigned faith of the hypocrite, and the fruitless faith of the formal professor, how Orthodox soever he is. It is the faith of God’s elect (Titus1:1), wrought by the Spirit of God in effectual calling.” 

I’m now cautioning those about to partake in this article initially you will be challenged by what you’re about to be shown. However, understand our Lord speaks only the truth and what is being revealed by the Holy Spirit we all need to see, recognize, accept, and work with. These articles are being furnished for all to read as warnings from a “WATCHMAN” who has been shown there is trouble in the flock which needs tending to, and those hearing our “Father’s” call to return to His teachings will be shown what it is, who is affected, and how to use their free will to repair it.  (Ezekiel 3:17 – 21) 

OPENING PRAYER by Robert

Heavenly Father, hear my petition for your children Lord. Bring upon them your spirit of understanding, loose onto them Father a spiritual lifting of the veils covering their eyes so they can see the truth. Take all thoughts of false glory Father, religious pride, loose unto them Father your spirit of humility peace and joy. Bring forward the spirit of discernment that their minds will be clear and receiving of your truth through the Holy Spirit as he reveals your Truth. This I pray in the name of Yeshua Amen and Amen. 

OPENING STATEMENT by Robert 

Yeshua was sharing with his disciples, I believe, possibly one of the most difficult lessons they may have had to face. Matthew 19:23 -26 Then said Yeshua unto his disciples, verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. v24. And again I say unto you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, then for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. v25. When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? v26. But Yeshua beheld them, and said unto them, With men, this is impossible but with God all things are possible.

Matthew Henry ( 1662 – 1774) gives a rendition of why it is difficult for a rich man to be a good Christian, and to be saved to enter into the kingdom of heaven, either here or hereafter. The way to heaven is to all a narrow way, and the gate that leads into it, a strait gate but it is particularly so to rich people. More duties are expected from them than from others, which they can hardly do and more sins do easily beset them, which they can hardly avoid. Rich people have great temptations to resist, and such as are very insinuating it is hard not to be charmed with a smiling world very hard, when we are filled with these hid treasures, not to take up with them for a portion. It must be a great measure of divine grace that will enable a man to break through these difficulties.

So, we now have a reason explained which gives us the ground work as soldiers to lay out a plan of how we are going to approach this battle as a family. You see I believe we are all a part of the family no matter our worldly position like the Lord says with God all things are possible. So let’s look for some resources we can use as a foundation to build on keeping in mind all in the family must daily be working out our salvation. But now we know it may be a bit more difficult for some, however they are still a part of the family needing our support.  

Here, I’m turning to who I believe is a seasoned warrior and can shed some light on this picture of who we are in our spiritual regeneration. Jesse Penn Lewis (1861 -1927) in her book “WAR ON THE SAINTS” on pages 209 & 210 shares some thought-provoking facts of how The “NATURAL” Verses The “SPIRITUAL Man. she wrote At first the regenerated man is but a “babe in Christ,” manifesting many of the characteristics of the natural man in jealousy, strife, etc (1Cor.3:1-4) until he apprehends the need of a fuller reception of the Holy Spirit to dwell in the regenerated spirit as His sanctuary. The unregenerate man is wholly dominated by soul and body. The regenerate man has his spirit (1) quickened, and (2) indwelt by the Holy Spirit, yet may be governed by soul and body because his spirit is compressed and bound. The Spiritual man has his spirit liberated from bondage to the soul (Heb. 4: 12) to be the organ of the Holy Spirit in mind and body.

“It is then that, by the Holy Spirit’s power, his volition is brought into harmony with God in all His laws and purposes, and the whole outer man into self-control. Thus it is written “The fruit of the Spirit… is self-control. (Gal. 5:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law). It is not only love,joy, peace, long-suffering, and gentleness, manifested through the channel of the soul –the personality — but in a true dominion over the world of himself, (1) every thought brought into captivity, in the same obedience to the will of the Father as was manifested in Yeshua (2Cor. 10:5 Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Yeshua). (2) His spirit “ruled” also from the chamber of the will, so that he is of a “cool spirit” and can “keep back” or utter at his will what is in his spirit as well as what is in his mind, (Prov. 17:27) and (3) his body so obedient to the helm of the will, that it is a disciplined and alert instrument to be handled intelligently as a vehicle for service, and not any longer master of the man, or the mere tool of Satan and unruly desires.”

We are going to move onto Hebrews 6 1-8 where Matthew Henry (1662 – 1771) asks “why did Paul set strong meat before the Hebrews, when he knew they were but babes? Answer Though some of them were but weak, yet others of them had gained more strength and they must be provided for suitably. And as those who are grown Christians must be willing to hear the plainest truths preached for the sake of the weak, so the weak must be willing to hear the more difficult and mysterious truths preached for the sake of those who are strong. He hoped they would be growing in their spiritual strength and stature, and so be able to digest stronger meat.” 

The premise of Paul’s, letter to the Hebrews was to persuade and press the believing Hebrews to a constant adherence to the Christian faith, and perseverance in it, notwithstanding all the sufferings they might meet with in so doing. The comparison I make here is to the initial reference that it is difficult for the Rich to walk as Christians. I believe with the tools and knowledge being provided that statement would only be true due to individual choice to succumb to the temptations. I also believe that those who are successful because of their individual intellect would if given proper leadership have no difficulty in following Yeshua.  

Jesse Penn Lewis (1861 – 1927) adds to our weapons and plan of attack remember Peter talked about all the different levels of faith being demonstrated. Ms. Penn Lewis draws our attention to use our free will and faith combination. She states the following on pg 211 – 212 in “WAR ON THE SAINTS”  In the hour of his regeneration God gives to man the decisive liberty of will to rule over himself, as he walks in fellowship with God. And by this restoration of a will free to act in choosing for God, SATAN LOSES HIS POWER. Satan is the god of this world, and he rules the world through the will of men enslaved by, him, enslaved not only directly, but indirectly, by inciting men to enslave one another and to covet the power of “influence,” whereas they should work with God to restore to every man the freedom of his own personal volition, and the power of choice to do right because it is right, obtained for them at Calvary. 

What I’m recognizing at this point is just how important having the proper understanding of what it is Yeshua was speaking about in the parable of rich men. As like most my mind jumped to all the material things of the world. Specifically, that is only part of what Yeshua wants us to see the second part of this information is spiritual as it involves all those who are following the Lord and have received his spiritual gifts.  Once we receive the gifts from Yeshua it places us in the category of being a rich man spiritually and in the eyes of Satan as such a special target. because as stated more is expected of the rich whether material or spiritual. We are shown In James 2:3 – 5 how easy it is to fall into Satan’s trap v3. And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, sit thou here in a good place, and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool. v4 Are ye not then partial in yourselves, and are become judges of evil thoughts? v5. Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?  

These verses show the makeup of God’s family and how Satan can and does divide us by planting sinful divisive thoughts (2Cor:10:4-5) where we despise the poor causing many to forget the poor are spiritually rich and heirs of the kingdom. I stated in the beginning of this article as a family in Yeshua we were going to obtain as many weapons as we can to do battle against the enemy placing temptations before the rich (2Cor 10:3-4).  I believe the Holy Spirit has brought us information who the rich Yeshua is speaking about in the parable, those in the world who are blessed materially and those in the world who are poor but blessed Spiritually and made heirs to the kingdom.  

Matthew Henry (1662 – 1774) gives us a look at who we would become as a part of Yeshua’s family falling for Satan’s subtle temptations. Consider how often riches lead to vice and mischief, and what great reproaches are thrown upon God and religion, by men of wealth, power, and worldly greatness; and it will make this sin appear very sinful and foolish. The scripture gives us a law, to love our neighbour as ourselvesThis is a royal law, it comes from the King of kings; and if Christians act unjustly, they are convicted by the law as transgressors. This shows the happiness of those that are in Yeshua. We may serve him without slavish fear. God’s restraints are not a bondage, but our own corruptions are so. 

Our search for more weapons and details to add to our plan of attack and defence bring us to 2 Timothy 2: 1 – 7  where Paul was encouraging Timothy, “the first of the weapons we are going to find, to constancy and perseverance in his work. Here is a major weapon being identified be strong in the grace that is in Yeshua. (2Timothy 2:1) Paul then advises Timothy those who have work to do for God must stir up themselves to do it, and strengthen themselves for it. Being strong in the grace that is in Yeshua may be understood in opposition to the weakness of grace. Where there is the truth of grace there must be a labouring after the strength of graceAs our trials increase, we have need to grow stronger and stronger in that which is good; our faith stronger, our resolution stronger, our love to God and Yeshua stronger.  

We were initially warned those who are perceived as prosperous more is expected of them this was first applied to worldly prosperity and through our definition, spiritual prosperity falls in that area as well. Our enemy Satan has by now realized how strong the family is becoming and is going to shift his attack into a higher level of deceptions, temptations and subtleties. Paul wrote about this in Romans 16:18 and John Gill (1697 – 1771) gives us a very clear picture of what form the new attacks will take. And by good words, and fair speeches, deceive the hearts of the simple, they were deceivers; they lay in wait to deceive, made use of the hidden things of dishonesty, walked in craftiness, and handled the word of God deceitfully, and therefore to be marked and avoided: they deceived “the simple”, harmless, and innocent, that thinks no evil, nor are aware of any; who have a little understanding of things; persons of weak minds, easy to be imposed upon; very credulous, ready to believe every word, so the simple man does, as Solomon says, Proverbs 14:15 and such teachers choose to tamper with, and make their attacks upon, being able to gain upon them the most easily, as their father the devil, the old serpent, did, when he first assailed human nature: the “hearts” of these they deceive; they work upon their affections, blind their understandings, impose on their judgments, and corrupt their minds from the simplicity that is in Yeshua: and this they do “by good words and fair speeches.”

Mr Gill has given a description of how the attacks will take place, I’m turning to Matthew Henry (1662 – 1774) to describe what weapons we need to use in this battle To be wise unto that which is good, that is, to be skillful and intelligent in the truths and ways of God. “Be wise to try the spirits, to prove all things, and then to hold fast that only which is good.” There is need of a great deal of wisdom in our adherence to good truths, and good duties, and good people, lest in any of these we be imposed upon and deluded. Be ye, therefore, wise as serpents (Matthew 10:16), wise to discern that which is really good and that which is counterfeit wise to distinguish things that differ, to improve opportunities. While we are in the midst of so many deceivers, we have great need of that wisdom of the prudent which is to understand his way (Proverbs 14:8. 

Now, capping this off with some instructions on how to use the weapons Mr. Gill and Mr. Henry have provided I’m turning to Jesse Penn Lewis (1861 -1927) to guide us in how to connect our spirit with the Holy Spirit and know we are in God’s will. Ms. Lewis on pages 214 – 215 in WAR ON THE SAINTS relates the following: The believer’s life is, therefore, to be a walk “after the spirit” minding “the things of the spirit” (Romans 8: 4-5). The word “spirit” is not written with a capital “S” denoting the Spirit of God, but with a small “s” as referring to the spirit of man. But the believer can only thus walk “after the spirit,” if the Spirit of God dwells in him (Romans 8:9), the Holy Spirit lifting his spirit to the place of rule over soul and body—” flesh,” both ethically and physically—by joining it to the Risen Lord, and making it “one spirit” with Him (1Cor. 6:17). 

That the believer retains volitional control over his own spirit is the important point to note, and through ignorance he can withdraw his spirit from co-operation with the Holy Spirit, and thus, so to speak, “walk” after the soul, or after the flesh unwittingly. 

The knowledge that the Spirit of God has come to indwell the shrine of the spirit, is not enough to guarantee that the believer will continue to walk in the spirit, and not fulfill the lusts of the flesh. (Gal. 5:16). If he lives by the spirit he must learn how to walk by the Spirit, and for this understand how to “combine” and “compare” spiritual things with spiritual (1Cor. 2:13) so as to interpret truly the things of the Spirit of God, exercising the spirit faculty by which he is able to examine all things, and discern the mind of the Lord.  

CLOSING COMMENTS by Robert

 What, can I say that this article hasn’t already stated, possibly know that our walks ae going to get deeper and deeper remember I said we are being shown the same material the original disciples were taught during their three years with Yeshua. Something referenced tonight was the Lord sent the disciples out without anything and they survived. I say to all learn to study the word seek information, if you have a question don’t be shy please ask I’m on Facebook (Watchman’s Trumpet), twitter (@robertrombough) as well I would hope and pray you will share. I find it amazing that commentators from 16th century are describing our churches of today. that shows me they truly were walking with Yeshua. Blessings to all.

PRE-AMBLE by Robert

Having, been shown about passivity and how to deal with it, the Holy Spirit is now bringing us to a new level of discernment and decision-making. We will be brought to a position that is going to not only challenge the depth of our walk but as well our profession of Faith. Peter in the last article “NOW THE WORK BEGINS” where he is speaking about faith and the many different levels of those professing faith clearly show’s many are trying to fool God

Matthew Henry (1662 – 1774) comments on Peter’s teachings (1Peter 1:1). “According to the foreknowledge of God the Father, and here as having obtained precious faith in our Lord Yeshua for the faith here mentioned is vastly different from the false faith of the heretic, and the feigned faith of the hypocrite, and the fruitless faith of the formal professor, how Orthodox soever he is. It is the faith of God’s elect (Titus1:1), wrought by the Spirit of God in effectual calling.” 

I’m now cautioning those about to partake in this article initially you will be challenged by what you’re about to be shown. However, understand our Lord speaks only the truth and what is being revealed by the Holy Spirit we all need to see, recognize, accept, and work with. These articles are being furnished for all to read as warnings from a “WATCHMAN” who has been shown there is trouble in the flock which needs tending to, and those hearing our “Father’s” call to return to His teachings will be shown what it is, who is affected, and how to use their free will to repair it.  (Ezekiel 3:17 – 21)

 What, can I say that this article hasn’t already stated, possibly know that our walks ae going to get deeper and deeper remember I said we are being shown the same material the original disciples were taught during their three years with Yeshua. Something referenced tonight was the Lord sent the disciples out without anything and they survived. I say to all learn to study the word seek information, if you have a question don’t be shy please ask I’m on Facebook (Watchman’s Trumpet), twitter (@robertrombough) as well I would hope and pray you will share. I find it amazing that commentators from 16th century are describing our churches of today. that shows me they truly were walking with Yeshua. Blessings to all.

“ARE YOU WALKING IN MEEKNESS OR SENSATIONALISM?”


Galatians 6:1“Brethren, if a man is overtaken in a fault, ye which is spiritual, restore such a one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.”  

PRE-AMBLE by Robert 

pexels-photo-880861 (2)As “modern-day disciples,” in our previous article “Have You Been Sealed By “Yeshua,” we were shown our call to battle was “WHAT SHALL WE DO” and then received our marching orders, and should be proceeding with entry into the “Den of Wolves.” We also received descriptions of both the false teachers, prophets and as well those being deceived and walking under a delusion.

In this article, we are brought to Galatian’s Six, where through the Holy Spirit we will receive further guidance and instructions on how to approach, enter and handle those trapped in the “Den of Wolves.” It was noted unique talents, and handling would be required, i.e., knowledge understanding, compassion, love, and definitely patience. With all of these talents being bestowed on us, we are as well cautioned not to lose our meekness and humility by assessing our walk continually.

To further the approach and implementation, The Holy Spirit through the writings of Apostle Paul equips us with discernment and understanding of how the teachings of the False teachers and Prophets spins its work. It will be revealed how to use the central design of the Galatian Epistle to fortify ourselves against the wiles of these false teachings. It explains how some can profess faith Paul spoke of a genuine, living faith which purifies the heart and works by love (Gal. 5:6).

James in his Epistle speaks of a profession or presumption of faith, barren and destitute of good fruit. Such faith is dead (James 2:17); it is a “faith” like the devils may have (James 2:19). It consists only of an intellectual belief of God’s being or existence, not consenting to His offer of salvation through repentance and turning from sin nor reliance on His promises. Chile 010

Matthew Henry (1662 – 1774) brings points forward about the actual character of those you will be dealing with and hold this type of faith. ” All our knowledge of God begins on his part; we know him because we are known to him. Though our teachings forbid idolatry, many, practice spiritual idolatry in their hearts. For what a man loves most, and cares most for, that is his god: some have their riches for their god, some their pleasures, and some their lusts. And many ignorantly worship a god of their own making; a god made of Love and no chastisement. For they persuade themselves that there is mercy for them with God, though they repent not, but go on in their sins. It is possible for those who have made significant professions of religion, to be afterward drawn aside from purity and simplicity. And the more mercy God has shown, in bringing any to know the gospel, and the liberties and privileges of it, the more significant their sin and folly in suffering themselves to be deprived of them. Hence all who are members of the outward church should learn to fear and to suspect themselves. We must not be content because we have some good things in ourselves. 

OPENING PRAYER by Robert 

People 605Father in heaven, hear our call for your wisdom to be brought before us, fill our hearts with your desire to serve in obedience. Lay your plan before us Father that we would know our direction and destination. Lift from our eyes the binders of darkness that we will identify those who have strayed. Fill our soul with your information that we are able to separate your sheep from the wolves in sheep’s clothing. Flood us with courage, discernment, determination through your knowledge and understanding. Anchor our feet on your solid foundation so no spiritual storm can sweep us away from our task. We thank you, Father, for this assignment and pray in the name of Yeshua you bless us with meekness, so we remain your faithful servants. Amen and Amen. 

OPENING STATEMENT by Robert 

When reproving others, we should take care to convince them that our reproofs are in sincere regard to the honor of God and religion and their welfare.” Matthew Henry (1662 – 1774), explains an approach which exemplifies our presence as “modern-day disciples” while in the “Den of Wolves.” “Those who profess faith in Yeshua as the Lord of glory, must not respect persons on account of mere outward circumstances and appearances, in a manner not agreeing with their profession of being disciples of Yeshua. James did not encourage rudeness or disorder: civil respect must be demonstrated, but never such as to influence the proceedings of Christians in disposing of the offices of the church of Yeshua, or in passing the censures of the church, or in any matter of religion.PEOPLE 451

Questioning ourselves is of great use in every part of the holy life. Let us be more frequent in this, and in everything take occasion to discourse with our souls. As places of worship cannot be built or maintained without expense, it may be proper that those who contribute to it should be accommodated accordingly.

The duty we are directed too, to restore such we should labor, by faithful reproofs, and pertinent and seasonable councils, to bring them to repentance. Paul in “Galatians 6,” taught how our best approach should be. Matthew Henry’s comments detail it for us. “The original word, “katartizete” means to set in joint, as a dislocated bone. Accordingly, we should endeavor to establish them in place again, to bring them to themselves. By convincing them of their sin and error. Persuading them to return to their duty, comforting them in the sense of pardoning mercy. And thus having recovered them, demonstrate our love for them.  

It is very common for a man to look upon himself as wiser and better than other MEETING 2men, and as fit to dictate to them. Such a one deceives himself; by pretending to what he has not, he cheats himself and sooner or later finds the sad effects. This will never gain esteem, either with God or men. Everyone is advised to prove his own work. The better we know our own hearts and ways, the less shall we despise others, and the more be disposed to help them under infirmities and afflictions. How light men’s sins seem to them when committed, yet they will be found a heavy burden, when they come to reckon with God about them. No man can pay a ransom for his brother, and sin is a burden to the soul. It is a spiritual burden, and the less a man feels it as such, the more cause he has to suspect himself. Most men are dead in their sins, and therefore have no sight or sense of the spiritual burden of sin. Feeling the weight and burden of our sins, we must seek to be eased thereof by the Saviour, and be warned against every sin.
Christ will not be the Saviour of any who will not own and rely on him as their only Saviour.
Let us take heed to the warnings and persuasions of the apostle to steadfastness in the doctrine and liberty of the gospel. All faithful followers, being taught by the Holy Spirit, wait for eternal life, the reward of righteousness, and the object of their hope, as the gift of God by faith in Christ; and not for the sake of their own works. 
We must then ask the question “How do we know if a person can know if he is one of the elect, or even if he can be given that kind of knowledge?
Spiros Zodhiates Th.D (1922 – 2009) I believe gives us an explanation of how to understand our position. “ Two words that must be examined to explain the much-debated subject of God’s election and predestination. The first is found in Ephesians 1:4 “he has chosen,” referring to the Greek word  exelexatosky-space-dark-galaxy
[1586]  meaning “chosen out of.” In this context, this word means that at one particular time in the past, God chose individuals for salvation (Matt. 24:31; Luke 18:7; Rom. 8:33; 2Tim. 2:10; James 2:5).
The second verb is proorisas [4309] “to determine beforehand or predestinate” (Acts 4:28; Rom. 8:29; 9:11; 1 Peter 1:2, 20). It is interesting to note that Peter referred to the concept of predestination in his sermon on the day of Pentecost. He said (speaking of Yeshua), “Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of, God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain.” In Eph.1:5 one can note the evidence of the concept of man’s free choice coupled with the responsibility for his actions. God delivered up His Son, and man was given the choice of what they would do with Yeshua. They chose to crucify Him, leaving them with the responsibility for their actions. Furthermore, the teaching of Scripture is clear. Yeshua died for all. In 1 John 2:2 the writer states, “And he is the propitiation for our sins, (i.e., believers) and not for ours only, but also the sins of the whole world. Therefore, the ministry of Yeshua that He did on the cross was intended for all. Repeatedly, God says that “whosoever believeth in Him” can obtain salvation (John 3:16-18, 36; Acts 10:43). PEOPLE 603
“Modern Day Disciples,” must not forbear speaking the truth, for fear of offending others. The false teachers who drew the Galatians from the reality of the gospel were designing men. They pretended affection, but they were not sincere and upright. An excellent rule is given. It is good to be zealous always in a good thing; not for a time only, or now and then, but forever. Happy would it be for the church of Yeshua, if this zeal was better maintained?
CLOSING PRAYER by Robert
Heavenly Father, hear our petition as we place before your throne those who know not their souls are in captivity of sin. We pray for your wisdom to be upon them, lift the shrouds of delusion from their minds. Open their eyes to your truth, WATERSCAPE 003so they may see their walk is in eternal death. Bring your compassion upon them Father so they would experience your love and the joys of it. Open the wells of living water within their temples that they will never again thirst. Remove all evil from their lives and walk, touch them Father so they know of your presence. Strengthen us “Oh Lord,” fill us with your love and compassion that we might go forward as meek, humble servants doing your bidding in obedience and submission carrying and placing their burdens before your throne for your intervention. This we pray in your name Yeshua. Amen and Amen.
CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert 
As I write this article, it has become clear to me the Fallen Archangel Satan has implemented a simple attack based on a distraction. By drawing our attention from a spiritual walk to the pleasures of our carnal state.  But this is not profound news as we are all aware of this fact. However by placing a fear of death with us and its consequences,(How light men’s sins seem to them when committed. Yet they will be found a heavy burden when they come to reckon with God about them.) we have been drawn to fixate on our fleshly and worldly pleasures even when walking in the spirit, with Yeshua. 
The fallen one the Archangel (Satan) who gave up his position in heaven, who SNAKE 02caused all to be separated from God and brought us the knowledge of death. Is sensing the end is drawing closer. In this, he is stepping up his battle for souls, and this war is really just about that “winning or losing souls.” 
Spiros Zodhiates Th.D (1922 – 2009) spells it out the best I have heard in a simple statement; “Furthermore the teaching of the Scripture is clear; Yeshua died for all. To come to Yeshua is an invitation to all, and all who hear the gospel are responsible and without excuse to either accept or reject Yeshua. If one perishes in his sin, he is condemned as a result of his own choice (Titus 3:10, 11). Spiros’s next statement enlightens and answers our question “WHAT SHALL WE DO?” Each word within the following comments are guides to knowing exactly the important it is we understand and comprehend the role of being submissive, obedient and fully committed as “modern-day disciples.” Our walk as “modern-day disciples” goes beyond evangelizing, beyond spreading the word. I believe these comments are taking us to the ultimate knowledge of understanding and living God’s Compassion and Love for His strayed ones. “As one reflects on the salvation experience of the believer, he should note that God alone knows the point at which a person receives Yeshua for salvation. It is also evident that the believer is “fulfilling” God’s purposes for his life, resulting in his becoming one of God’s “Elect.”  

Matthew Henry (1662 – 1774) sums up our walk: “The fruits of the Spirit plainly show that such are led by the Spirit. By describing the works of the flesh and fruits of the Spirit, we are told what to avoid and oppose, and what we are to cherish and cultivate; and this is the sincere care and endeavor of all real believers. Sin does not now reign in our mortal bodies so that we obey it, (Romans 6:12), for we seek to destroy it. Yeshua never will own those who yield themselves up to be the servants of sin. And it is not enough that we cease to do evil, but we must learn to do well. Our conversation will always be answerable to the principle which guides and governs us, (Romans 8:5). We must set ourselves in earnest to mortify the deeds of the body, and to walk in newness of life. Not being desirous of vain-glory, or unduly wishing for the esteem and applause of men, not provoking or envying one another, but seeking to bring forth more abundantly those good fruits, which are, through Yeshua, to the praise and glory of God.
Over the last number of months (14), I recognize as my commitment and submission have grown within my personal relationship with Yeshua. The level of compassion towards the daily sufferings I witness or hear of causes great pain in my spirit and soul. I at times weep knowing, many, will journey through life in the shadow of death and will not nor will they recognize their spiritual status; and will pass into eternity separated from God and Yeshua by their own choice. 
PEOPLE 502
I recognize the comfort  Spiros Zodhiates Th.D following words will bring forward. However, I also hear and recognize the urgency in them to do everything I can to fulfill God’s call, to rescue, as many as I am able to draw into His light shining through me. I also understand this calling has to be done in humility, meekness, and in God’s will, without any glory on my part or the part of anyone else who takes on this mantle as a “MODERN DAY DISCIPLE”.
Remember these articles are written as a humble servant doing Yeshua’s bidding as a messenger. I pray all will be blessed by them and bring them closer to Yeshua in their walk with him.
God’s blessings are with you  
Robert

“FAITH!”


And Yeshua answering saith unto them. Have faith in God. Mark 11:22
PRE-AMBLE by Robert
WOMEN TOUCHING JESUS' HEM

What is Faith? Where do we find Faith? Why should I have Faith? Where will Faith take me? And the questions go on and on about Faith, about the importance of Faith being in our lives or the lack of it. In the King James Version, Faith appears 336 times; other versions vary, 458 times in the New International Bible, 389 in the New King James Bible version, 378 in the New American Standard Bible and 521 in the Good News Bible.
What does all this mean to the discerning believer? In this article, we are being led into the thickest part of our walks. We will see answers to as many of the questions the Lord sees fit to answer through the Holy Spirit.
In the secular world, Faith is defined as follows: Faith can be described as trust or confidence in a person or something in religion, faith is the belief or trust in doctrines and ethics or a supreme being. Usually not based on proof Faith could also mean observance of obligation or fidelity to one’s promise or oath.
In the Scriptures, I see those who walk with the Spirit of God bringing forth definitions of faith. One part of the secular definition Usually not based on proof is the best description needed to describe faith within a walk with Yeshua.
OPENING PRAYER by Robert.
DOMESTICATED ANIMAL 014

Heavenly Father we place all the heavenly gifts received daily from you Lord through our faith before your throne. Giving praise and thanks for having received them. We recognize the power of recognition without substance as the reward and definition you have Spiritually defined our FAITH as. We accept your acknowledgment of our trust without question, our devotion within your Love and healing of our souls through your compassion, and the growth of our understanding through your gift of discernment. We thank you, Father, for the ability to proceed through our lives in peace even when under attack or being tempted. Father, we give praise for all we have received through Spiritually filling us with FAITH. This we pray in the name of Yeshua, Amen and, Amen.
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
HOLY SPIRIT

The Holy Spirit is leading us to the book of Jeremiah so we might reflect on the current condition of our world, our surroundings and those within it. What John Gill’s (1697 to 1771) commentary from the introduction of the Book of Jeremiah describes is why the destruction of the Jews occurred. And I believe eventually our world and those in it who are being identified and why. “It describes their sins, their idolatry, which was notorious, of which their own consciences, their altars, and their children were witnesses, (Jeremiah 17:1).
For which they are threatened with the spoil of their substance and treasure, and discontinuance in their land, (Jeremiah 17:3). As also their confidence in an arm of flesh, which brought the curse of God on them, when such are blessed that trust in him, and the difference between those that trust in men and those that trust in the Lord is illustrated by very apt similes (Jeremiah 17:5).
The source of which vain confidence is the wicked heart of man, known to none but God, (Jeremiah 17:9) and the vanity of it is exposed by a partridge sitting on eggs without hatching them, (Jerimiah 17:11).
And their departure from God, by trusting in the creature, and in outward things, is aggravated by their temple being the throne and seat of the divine Majesty, by what God is to the people that trust him, and by the shame and ruin that follow apostasy from him, (Jeremiah 17:12).
MIRROR - FULL LENGTH

This description is like looking in the mirror and seeing today’s world being presented before us so we might visually see where it stands. The decay and rottenness the betrayals and dry condition of those within it. And more than anything why and how historically it is being repeated. But to understand why God is proclaiming to destroy this world as he declared he would destroy Jerusalem and its palaces which should be burnt to the ground if the warning was/is not heeded.
John Gill (1697 to 1771) describes what God offered as a solution. “The prophet then follows an order to him from the Lord. To go and stand in the gate of the city, and exhort all ranks of men to the observation of the Sabbath, with directions on how to keep it. Which had not been observed by their fathers, and which was another cause of their ruin, (Jeremiah 17:19) and the chapter is closed with promises of blessings in city, court, and country, in church and state, should they religiously observe the Sabbath day. But if they profaned it, the city of Jerusalem and its palaces should be burnt with fire, (Jeremiah 17:24).
Jeremiah carried quite a strong message to those in Jerusalem but what does it have to do with our Faith today.
His commandment to the people was to religiously observe the Sabbath. Keyword in that message if you observe it closely is RELIGIOUSLY

SHEPHERD 4

observed.
In other words, stop paying lip service to God, get serious about your walks or else. Something all need to remember God knows your heart intent don’t think you can fool Him, you can’t, God is not your carnal father.
John Gill (1697 to 1771) describes through what the prophet Jeremiah did before receiving and delivering God’s message. “Wherefore the prophet sensible of his own backslidings prays’ to be healed and saved by the Lord, who should have all the praise and glory, (Jeremiah 17:14) and then relates the scoffs of the people at the word of God by him. Another cause of their ruin declares his own innocence and integrity; prays for protection and the security from fear in a time of trouble, and for confusion, terror and destruction to his persecutors, (Jeremiah 17:15).
The following is the real message Jeremiah brought to those within who would receive and observe the warning which John Gill (1697 to 1771) appropriately describes, in my opinion, is an appropriate spiritual definition of FAITH: “Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green. And shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.” (Jeremiah 17:7-8).”
Each warning holds in-depth information on its effect on our lives and personal

TRUMPET 15

relationship with Yeshua and His Father Yehwah.
A woman desperate for healing and in faith follows Yeshua and reaches out and touches his garment and is healed by her faith.
Peter steps out of a boat and walks on water by his faith until he is overwhelmed by doubt and fear. Moses leads the Israelites to the edge of the Red Sea, trapping them for the oncoming Egyptians, through his faith the Red Sea is parted, and a way to escape the Egyptians is provided.
A man being crucified next to Yeshua (Jesus) declares Yeshua’s innocence and by his unknown faith, becomes the first to receive Salvation through his belief in truth and fairness. I could go on and on citing the actions of worship.
Matthew Henry (1662 – 1774) brings forward through his commentary a formula describing and defining FAITH but more importantly, in that definition what faith will make available: “There is the fullness of comfort in God, overflowing, ever-flowing fullness, like a fountain. It is always fresh and clear, like spring-water, JESUS 16

while the pleasures of sin are puddle-waters.
He prays to God for healing, saving mercy. He appeals to God concerning his faithful discharge of the office to which he was called. He humbly begs that God would own and protect him in the work to which he had plainly called him.
Whatever wounds or diseases we find to be in our hearts and consciences, let us apply to the Lord to heal us, to save us, that our souls may praise his name. His hands can bind up the troubled conscience, and heal the broken heart; he can cure the worst diseases of our nature.
Our question, Why do I need faith? I believe is answered in the book of Galatians 3:19 where Matthew Henry (1662 – 1774) brings forward details of how to understand the “Why,” in Galatians 3:22 “But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Yeshua (Jesus) might be given to them that believe.
However, we must know how it is; we recognize we are sinners and an explanation of Why God called us to come back to walking in His laws. Many say the law has

IMG_20180305_1653568.jpg

been done away with and now we walk under Salvation and Grace. I point out the Holy Spirit is leading us to Galatians 3:23 – 26 to find the truth of God’s calling us back.
The Apostle Paul explains why. “But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterward be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Yeshua (Jesus Christ). Now the following verses are the most important for all as they describe how we truly are through faith connected to Yeshua (Jesus). For as, many of you as having been baptized into Yeshua (Jesus) have put on Yeshua (Jesus). There is neither Jew nor Greek; there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Yeshua (Christ Jesus). And if ye be Yeshua’s (Jesus’s) then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
The covenant God made with Abraham, was not removed by giving the law to Moses. The covenant was made with Abraham and his Seed. It is still in force; Christ abideth for ever in his person, and his spiritual seed, who are his by faith. By this, PEOPLE 778

we learn the difference between the promises of the law and those of the gospel. God’s promises of the law are made to the person of every man; the promises of the gospel are first made to Yeshua, then by him to those who are by faith ingrafted into Yeshua (Jesus).
Rightly to divide the word of truth, a significant difference must be put between the promise and the law, as to the inward affections, and the whole practice of life. When the promise is mingled with the law, it is made nothing but the law. Let Yeshua be always before our eyes, as a positive argument for the defence of the faith, against dependence on human righteousness.
TORAH 1

Matthew Henry (1662 -1774) explains The law did not teach a living, saving knowledge; but, by its rites and ceremonies, especially by its sacrifices, it pointed to Yeshua, that they might be justified by faith. And thus it was, as the word properly signifies, a servant, to lead to Yeshua, as children are lead to school by servants who have the care of them, that they might be more fully taught by Him the exact way of justification and salvation, which is only by faith in Yeshua.
And the vastly more significant advantage of the gospel state is shown, under which we enjoy a more explicit discovery of Divine grace and mercy than the Jews of old.
Most men continue to shut up as in a dark dungeon, in love with their sins, being blinded and lulled asleep by Satan, through worldly pleasures, interests, and pursuits.
But the awakened sinner discovers his dreadful condition. Then he feels that the mercy and grace of God form his only hope. And the terrors of the law are often used by the convincing Spirit, to show the sinner his need of Yeshua, to bring him to rely on his sufferings and merits, that he may be justified by faith.
Then the law, by the teaching of the Holy Spirit, becomes his loved rule of duty, and his standard for daily self-examination. In this use of it, he learns to depend more directly on the Saviour.
Here we address the question of why should I have faith the following pieces of information commented on by Matthew Henry (1662 -1774) show the action part of MAN WITH SWORD

Faith within our lives and the importance of it being exercised faithfully and daily.
A Believer must consider himself undressed, if unarmed. The graces of the Spirit are this armour, to secure the soul from Satan’s temptations, and the assaults of this present evil world.
Put on Yeshua; that includes all. Put on the righteousness of Yeshua, for justification. Put on the Spirit and grace of Yeshua, for sanctification. Yeshua must be put on as Lord to rule you like Christ to save you; and in both, as Yeshua anointed and appointed by the Father to this ruling, saving work.
And how to walk. When we are up and ready, we are not to sit still, but to appear abroad; let us walk. Being a believer teaches us how to walk so as to please God, whoever sees us. Walk honestly as in the day; avoiding the works of darkness.

KNIGHT 14
Where there are riot and drunkenness, there usually are chambering and wantonness, and strife and envy. Solomon puts these all together, Proverbs 23:29-35. See what provision to make. Our great care must be to provide for our souls: but must we take no concern about our bodies? Yes; but two things are forbidden.
Perplexing ourselves with anxious, encumbering care; and indulging ourselves in irregular desires. Natural wants are to be answered, but evil appetites must be checked and denied. To pursue meat for our necessities is our duty, we are taught to pray for daily bread, but to not be satisfied and ask for what we desire to satisfy our fleshly lusts, is provoking God, Psalm 78:18.
CLOSING COMMENTS by Robert
JACOB'S LADDER 1

Is there an answer to all the questions about faith, yes, however only if we continue as shown to walk in the light, receive instructions from the Holy Spirit and grow in our personal relationship with Yeshua.
We saw the results of Peter having great faith by walking on the water. Yeshua tells us we can move mountains or if our faith is the size of a mustard seed we can become a source of comforting, knowledge and security like the tree which springs from that seed.
I see faith as the most significant and essential tool Yahweh has placed within our soul. What I am recognizing is not to question or wonder about faith, but to accept it is there operating in my life and walk as God has meant it to be.
The few examples described here really only give us a reason not to doubt faith but embrace its presence in our walk to eternity. My conclusion for what it is worth FAITH as we know, recognize and relish genuinely is the Key to paradise and everlasting, eternal life.
Without it, we end up on the broad path many are following in delusion not knowing God has provided them with a key to freedom and eternal peace joy and in a personal relationship and presence of Yeshua and His Father. “Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.

“LEARNING HOW TO HEAL!”


Now we see a blurred image in a mirror. Then we will see clearly. Now my knowledge is incomplete. Then will I have complete knowledge as God has complete knowledge of me? So these three things remain faith, hope, and … Continue reading

“THE COMFORTING HAND OF GOD”


PETER 1

And he said, come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on water, to go to Yeshua. v.30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid and beginning to sink, he cried saying, Lord, save me, v.31 And immediately Yeshua stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, ‘O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt.’  (Matthew 29 – 31)

PRE-AMBLE by Robert 

As “Modern Day Disciples,” our walk, faith, and discernment like the early “Apostles” have been deepened, we are being drawn into a very deep personal relationship with Yeshua. Having been shown there will be moments of turmoil which like Peter will frighten us, as we may not entirely comprehend, and because of our relationship with our Lord, call out for his assistance when we believe we are failing not realizing we have in our spirit doubted what we have received as truth.PEOPLE 8

Matthew Henry (1662 – 1774) brings to light a reflection we need to ponder on in his commentary. “Special supports are promised and are to be expected, but only in spiritual pursuits; nor can we ever come to Yeshua, unless we are upheld by his power. Yeshua bade Peter come, not only that he might walk upon the water, and so know his Lord’s power, but that he might know his own weakness. And the Lord often lets his servants have their choice, to humble and prove them, and to show the greatness of his power and grace. When we look off from Yeshua and look at the greatness of opposing difficulties, we shall begin to fall; but when we call to him, he will stretch out his arm, and save us. Yeshua is the great Saviour; those who would be saved, must come to him, and cry to him, for salvation; we are never brought to this, till we find ourselves sinking: the sense of need drives us to him. He rebuked Peter. Could we but believe more, we should suffer less. The weakness of faith and the prevailing of our doubts displease our Lord, for there is no good reason why Yeshua’s disciples should be of a doubtful mind. Even on a stormy day, he is to them a very present help. None but the world’s Creator could multiply the loaves, none but its Governor could tread upon the waters of the sea: the disciples yield to the evidence, and confess their faith. They were suitably affected and worshipped, Yeshua. He that comes to God must believe, and he that believes in God will come (Hebrews 11:6.)”

PEOPLE 7Full satisfaction is reserved for the future state. Your joys shall be constant. God not only works in them a gracious desire for these pleasures but by his Spirit fills your souls with joy and peace in believing. He quickens whom he will; and whoever will, may come, and take from him of the waters of life freely. May we know, and love, and uprightly serve the Lord; then no proud enemy, on earth or from hell, shall separate us from his love. Faith calleth things that are not, as though they were. It carries us forward to the end of time; it shows us the Lord, on his throne of judgment; the empire of sin fallen to rise no more.

OPENING PRAYER by Robert   

All things are in your control heavenly Father, including our walk to eternal life CANADIAN MARITIME 014with you. We ask Lord for you to reveal through the Holy Spirit how to appropriately share our gift with those trapped in the darkness of this world. We pray for Father a deep discernment and understanding of how to use your gifts to be the most effective example of reflecting your light love and compassion to them. Deepen our enthusiasm and determination to withstand the wiles of the enemy preventing us from approaching them. Fill us with determination to expel our doubts and fears. We give thanks to you Lord and pray this in your name Yeshua. Amen and Amen,”  

OPENING STATEMENT by Robert 

Is it not curious how we hold ourselves back from utilizing the wondrous gifts PEOPLE 2which have been offered. When I think about how many who surround me declaring their love and desire to serve and be with our Saviour Yeshua. Yet suffer shortcomings in their walk daily when they should be walking in peace and joy praising God for His gifts while using and sharing them. What was shown in “THERE CAN BE NO TRUE PEACE WITHOUT GRACE” published Jan 20, 2020,” For our Salvation to have any value in God’s eyes, it must be shared.Is now revealing where some of our weaknesses are. This article is going to introduce us on how to recognize we are in God’s Hands and why we should not have doubt in our lives. We are going to find how Yeshua while walking in this world was able through his faith, and without doubt, was through His Father performing all His miracles. (John 8:54).

Yeshua through the Holy Spirit is allowing us to look deep into our commitment to see our weaknesses and fears. He is going to allow us to follow our choices until we recognize our failing ways and will then lift us up so we might truly witness His power that we may obtain a greater level of acceptance thus removing doubt from our being and walk. (Acts 10:38) “How God anointed Yeshua of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil, for God was with him.”  

Our past articles I believe, have, lead us to this position in our walks. Yeshua called Peter to come to him and he was walking on water until he took his eyes off of Him. After rescuing Peter Yeshua pointed out why he failed,  O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt.’  (Matthew 29 – 31). In that quick statement to Peter, Yeshua is identifying with us why we are not able to utilize all of God’s gifts. It is a lack of faith and doubt, along with the acceptance of our enemies lies that the time for Healings and Miracles has passed.

I believe Peter in Acts 10:34 dispells this lie by saying “Of a truth, I perceive that God is no respecter of persons.  So, in my humble opinion “for what it is worth,” do not believe God has stopped bestowing the Gifts received at Pentecost through the Fingers of fireBaptism of “The Holy Ghost.” and here is why! When we read the following (Acts 10:42) ” And he commanded us to preach unto the people and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead. v.43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins, v.44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on them which heard the word. v.45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. v.46 For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, v.47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?  

Well I, know there will be those who will question my position which is their right. However, I cannot nor will not set aside this evidence showing as Yeshua states      O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt.’  (Matthew 29 – 31). I am calling all those walking as “Modern Day Apostles” to recognize what Matthew Henry (1662 – 1774) revealed “Yeshua bade Peter come, not only that he might walk upon the water, and so know his Lord’s power, but that he might know his own weakness. And the Lord often lets his servants have their choice, to humble and prove them, and to show the greatness of his power and grace.” 

This article “THE COMFORTING HAND OF GOD” for me relates where I am with God, and there should be no “DOUBT” in my walk which will affect my performance as His obedient servant. Meaning, and remember, it is up to God who he bestows His SHEPHERD 4heavenly gifts too, not as a respecter of men, but as the omnipotent Father who knows the true position of a believer’s heart, faith and journey.

So it now becomes clear why we were lead to analyze our walk through the past article “ARE YOU KNOWN BY YOUR FRUITS” published Jan.14, 2020? Here, it is becoming clear how God is leading us to follow His Son’s footsteps and those of the early Apostles. Matthew Henry (1662 – 1774) explained it “Christ came to teach us, not only what we are to know and believe, but what we are to do. Not only toward God but toward men, not only toward those of our party but toward all men.” The Holy Ghost fell upon others after they were baptized, to confirm them in the faith; but upon these Gentiles, before they were baptized, to show that God does STAFF 1not confine himself to outward signs. The Holy Ghost fell upon those who were neither circumcised nor baptized; it is the Spirit that quickeneth, the flesh profiteth nothing. They magnified God and spake of Christ and the benefits of redemption. Whatever gift we are endued with, we ought to honour God with it. The believing Jews who were present were astonished that the gift of the Holy Ghost was poured out upon the Gentiles also.

By mistaken notions of things, we make difficult for ourselves as to the methods of Divine providence and grace. As they were undeniably baptized with the Holy Ghost, Peter concluded they were not to be refused the baptism of water, and the ordinance was administered. The argument is conclusive; can we deny the sign to those who have received the things signified? Those who have some acquaintance with Christ, cannot but desire more. Even those who have received the Holy Ghost must see their need of daily learning more of the truth. Peter then commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. 

CLOSING COMMENTS by Robert 

I truly believe the following comments quoted here best describes how the early assemblies were being established through the devotion of the Apostle Peter as described in the Expositor’s Bible Commentary. Our lives may be very ordinary and commonplace, the events may succeed one another in the most matter-of-fact style. There may seem in them nothing at all worth the attention of a Divine Ruler, yet those ordinary lives are just as much planned and guided by supernatural wisdom as the careers of men concerning whom all the world is talking. Only let us take care to follow Peter’s example. He yielded himself completely to the Divine guidance, trusted himself completely to the Divine love and wisdom, and then found in such trust not only life and safety but what is far better, perfect peace and sweetest calm.

There are men never tired of running from one committee to another, and never weary of seeing their names in the morning papers. They count they have been busily and usefully employed if their names are perpetually appearing in newspaper reports as speaking, or at any rate being present, at innumerable meetings, leaving themselves no time for that quiet meditation whereby Peter gained the closest communion with heaven.

Pure and undefiled religion is sometimes found where we least expect it. Wherever the fear of God rules in the heart, it will appear both in works of charity and of PETER 5piety, neither will excuse from the other. Doubtless, Cornelius had true faith in God’s word, as far as he understood it, though not as yet clear faith in Yeshua. This was the work of the Spirit of God, through the mediation of Yeshua, even before Cornelius knew him, as is the case with us all when we, who before were dead in sin, are made alive. Through Yeshua also his prayers and alms were accepted, which otherwise would have been rejected. Without dispute or delay, Cornelius was obedient to the heavenly vision. In the affairs of our souls, let us not lose time.

Like Peter as “Modern Day Disciples, “we should follow his leadership, Peter was successful in opening the door of faith for many. Because he prepared himself for doing the Divine work by the discipline of meditation, deliberation, and prayer with his Risen Lord. Here I will remind you of the template I revealed at the start of the article. We must recognize a period of pause, repose, and quietness should proceed with a new onward movement of development and of action. 

CLOSING PRAYER by Robert

PEOPLE 778Father as you have us in your presence and hold us in your hands we ask for your gentleness to be upon us that we may know how it feels and are able to share it. Receive our devotion and submission to your will as dedicated servants humbly bowing before your throne, Shape and mould us into the disciples you desire Father. Fill us with your wisdom that we might hold no fear or doubt as we go forward sharing your light, living water, love, compassion, and healings as your “Modern Day Disciples. This we pray in your name Yeshua Amen and Amen. 

R_DSC0145-27emember these articles are from a humble obedient servant doing Yeshua’s bidding as He reveals His warnings. I pray our Lord Yeshua blesses each and everyone along with your families. Go in peace.

Genesis 12:3 “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”
