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.


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


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.


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. 


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.

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


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.   


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.

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?


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. 


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.


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. 


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 


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.

Note: This release is not just a re-release it is the sounding of  the Watchman’s “TRUMPET” as a deep warning concerning those walking in Faith. Your decision whether to read should not be made thinking you have heard this before and ignore it. “Your Choice.” Robert

Here is a prayer for all who are working their Audit to locate their path in the darkness that has encompassed all;

Father in heaven polish their internal lens and brighten the light within their hearts, so it may shine forth, for those trapped in the dark, so they may see and come forward. “Lord”, I come before thee as a humble servant seeking your strength to reflect your light into this dark world, that I may share what thou has bestowed as gifts.

As your humble servant, Lord, I have placed my foot in your footprint. And ask you loose unto all who follow and step into your footprint the spirits of discernment, understanding, courage, grace, pardoning mercy, goodness, kindness, and mercies towards all who enter their life’s journey, deepen their conversations so they are Godly and Holy.

I pray for this Father, so your children who Love Cherish and Honour your Deity will not cease in this world. This I place before thy throne for you to hear as a petition for your mercies to be upon all, Father, as we discern the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Amen and Amen, in the name of Yeshua, I pray.


In the closing comments of “FINDING YOURSELF IN THE WILDERNESS.”  


I related to the condition of the world and the society we live in. I believe Matthew Henry (Oct. 18, 1662 – Jun. 22, 1714) gave us a description of how far from God our current society has drifted. Or you can say have allowed ourselves to be drawn into the conditions he describes in 2Timothy3; “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.” 

What comes to mind is the warning God spoke to the Israelite’s do not fall into doing what is right in your own minds. I will ask you again, “HAVE YOU BEEN COMPLETELY HONEST,” in your assessment; I pray you have because, in this footprint, we are going to find truths which I know are going to definitely change your walk and, ultimately, your persona as a believer following Yeshua. 

The lessons we are about to receive are coming from Yeshua’s answers to questions brought to Him by the Pharisees and his disciples. As I have always maintained, we must, and I emphasize, they must develop and seek after a very personal relationship with Yeshua.

Again, I ask you to imagine we are in the presence of the Lord, and He is speaking to us directly.  I believe this is the real church, and as proof cite Matthew 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. We don’t need to be in a vast building or group to learn how to draw nearer to Yeshua. In John 8:12, Yeshua states his position. Then spake Yeshua again unto them saying I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. 

Matthew Henry (Oct. 18, 1662 – Jun. 22, 1714) comments on Yeshua’s declaration Christ’s doctrine was from heaven. It was copied out of the counsels of infinite wisdom, and the kind intentions of eternal Love. Yeshua states I speak that which I have seen. The discoveries Yeshua has made to us of God and another world are not grounded upon guess and hearsay but upon visual inspection so that he was thoroughly apprised of nature, and assured of the truth, of all he said. 

We hear from Yeshua what he is teaching comes directly from Yahweh and should not be questioned because it is what he has seen and knows to be true and is sharing it with those who are drawing near to hear and believe.

Matthew Henry (Oct. 18, 1662 – Jun. 22, 1714) continues The Lord recognizes virtue has gone out of him and turns his discourse from the proud Pharisee’s. Addressing himself to those weak believers. When he had denounced wrath against those that were hardened in unbelief, then he spoke comfort to those few feeble Jews that believed in him. 

How carefully he cherishes the beginnings of grace and meets those that are coming towards him. These Jews that believed were yet but weak, but Yeshua did not, therefore, cast them off, for he gathers the lambs in his arms.

When faith is in its infancy, he has knees to prevent it, breasts for it to suck, that it may not die from the womb. In what he said to them, we have two things, which he saith to all that should at any time believe. 

The character of a true disciple of Christ “if you continue in my word, then are you, my disciples, indeed.” When they believed in him, as the great prophet, they gave up themselves to be his disciples. 

Now it is becoming clearer why Yahweh was calling us to return to following His laws and placing our foot in the footprints [Yeshua] left behind for those who like the Jews drew nearer and believed.

Once committed to doing God’s Audit and refreshing our walk, recognizing how much we really don’t understand why the absolute need to draw near to Yeshua and developing a permanent desire for learning as well how to develop a sincerely bonded relationship with Him.

John Gill (Nov. 23 -1697 – Oct. 14, 1771) I believe puts it in words we can understand and know what it is going to take to chose and devote ourselves. As well to creating a profound, lasting relationship with Yeshua:

John Gill relates: Yeshua states if ye continue in my word, meaning the Gospel, called his because he was both the author, and preacher, and sum, and substance of it. Stay in it, is having cordially received it, to abide by it, and hold it fast, and not to be moved from it. Through the temptations of Satan, the cunning of those that lie in wait to deceive; nor by the revilings and persecutions.

The frowns and flatteries of men, and when men continue thus steadfast in it and faithful to it. It is evident that it has come with power, and has a place in their hearts, and that they are faithful followers of Yeshua. Then are ye my disciples indeed.

There are two sorts of disciples of Christ. Some are only nominal, and merely in a profession such, and these sometimes draw back from him, discontinue in his word.

And go out from among his people, which shows that they never were of them, nor are the true disciples of Yeshua. For the genuine followers of Yeshua continue in his Gospel, hold fast to him, the head, and remain with his people, which to do to the end, is evidence of their being disciples indeed.   

Recall, I identified the Holy Spirit revealing that, I really didn’t understand much about my relationship with Yahweh and what it was going to take to walk in His Son, Yeshua’s footsteps. I pray many others found the same.

The Holy Spirit also asked if I was prepared to receive truth and then asked what was I going to do with it once I received it? His next question was, did I really understand what it truly stood for and its power within my journey and working out my Salvation?

After listening to Mr. Gill’s commentary, I profoundly understand what is expected of me as an individual in pursuit of drawing nearer to Yahweh through my personal relationship with His Son Yeshua.

I have always asked anyone who stated they wanted to walk in Yeshua’s footsteps if they knew what commitment was expected of them? I think Mr. Gill has explained quite clearly what it is and how difficult it is to walk in those footprints. I, for one, am prepared to do so knowing the Lord is there with me guiding, supplying answers and uplifting me because I genuinely have him in my heart and totally believe in His promises and teachings. 

What I am about to share is a caution to those who question and think they are already free from the bondage of the world and the darkness enveloping it and them.

Yes, we have received and believe we are living and walking under Salvation. The caution here is not to become haughty like the Pharisee’s who answered Yeshua “we be Abraham’s seed, and as such believing. There is no need to commit to an audit, as you have received Salvation through faith, believing your walk is secure and pure with Yeshua.

For those who are working on their review and stepping into Yeshua’s footprints heeding Yahweh’s call to return to the law and committing to Yeshua’s teachings through the Holy Spirit, here is a strong message you really need to hear.

The following is from the Mount of Olives delivered by Yeshua cited in John 8:13 The Pharisee’s, therefore, said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true. V14: Yeshua answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true; for I know whence I came, and whither I  go, but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go. v15: Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man. v16: And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me. Then said Yeshua to those Jews which believed on him, v31: If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed. v32: And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

  I believe John Gill’s (Nov. 23 -1697 – Oct. 14, 1771) comments ring true as he explains what is in store for those of us who have committed to the Audit. Are now seeking to draw closer, removing the false teachings, religious myths and fables returned to following Yahweh’s Laws and are moving into a profound personal relationship with His Son Yeshua. I believe here is where we discover what truth is and its powers over us. 

“And ye shall know the truth,….. Either the truth of the Gospel, the truth as it is in Yeshua. Meaning that they should have a larger knowledge of it. While others are ever learning and never come to the understanding of the truth. But the spirit of truth should lead them into all truth, and cause them to grow and increase in Gospel light and knowledge, or Yeshua himself.

Who is the way, the truth, and the life, and the sense is that they should know more of him? Of the dignity of his person, of the nature and usefulness of his offices, of the efficacy of his blood. The excellency of his righteousness, and the fulness of his grace, and that for themselves: “And the truth shall make you free.” From ignorance and error, and the prejudices of education, under which the whole nation laboured, and from the thraldom (slavery) of the law.

What is becoming more and more apparent of this particular journey is the need for a guide that I see as the Holy Spirit. The commentator Matthew Henry (Oct. 18, 1662 – Jun. 22, 1714) comments relate to this as a journey comparable to the Israelite’s following the column in the day and resting in assurance they were protected by the pillar of fire at night.

As we grow spiritually more rooted in our Audit, it is recognized it will continue as there is no time limit, but strong leadership is required as we have no clue where we are being led and what life situations will present. But know our final destination.

The Israelite’s were venturing into uncharted territory knowing their destination just as we are now journeying into uncharted territories, also knowing we have been set free from ignorance and error, the prejudices of education and slavery of the law having a destination to work at achieving being with our Father in heaven Yahweh. 

We now have a better understanding of how truth works in our lives and a knowledge of what makes one a true disciple of Yeshua devoted dedication and complete commitment.  

So now, again, I see even deeper how much I really didn’t understand my relationship with Yeshua. “Oh,” sure I was coasting along, believing my relationship was deep, and I was doing everything I thought I needed to do to follow and draw closer to Yeshua.

However, when the Holy Spirit revealed I wasn’t where I thought or hoped to be in my relationship with Yeshua, I wondered at first, then submitted to his musings and began to dig deeper. Quickly realized, I was bordering on believing in my mind I was right with God, and promptly understood, I had started to slip toward walking in Pride, Vanity, Luxury, Sensuality. 

Matthew Henry (Oct. 18, 1662 – Jun. 22, 1714) also confirms It is implied that there are many who profess themselves Yeshua’s disciples who may not be his disciples indeed but only in show and name. Then goes on to relate those that are not strong in faith to see to it, they are sound in faith, though not disciples of the highest form, are nevertheless disciples indeed only in show and name. 


The common excuse I’m so busy making a living time is precious (Luxury), then if I make these changes, I won’t be accepted socially (Vanity). Besides, I know God been baptized and declared my Love for Him and always lets everyone know I’m a good Christian (Pride).

The real game breaker is how important the feel of a velvet shirt against my skin is. Recognizing certain fragrances heighten sensual experiences and will attract the opposite sex to have an opportunity (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.) to appease my fleshly desires (Sensuality).

Without realizing it, I was falling into this worldly trap and slipping away from building my relationship with Yeshua as three of the four temptations were growing in my life, I had sensuality under control. It is not wrong to present yourself professionally.

However when you begin to allow these factors to dictate your walk you have enabled the five natural senses touch, taste, smell, sight, and hearing to become the primary factors of how you will approach your walk instead of hearing the Holy Spirit guide, teach, chastise, and lead.

Putting it bluntly, you have become carnal and gather information about the world around you instead of about Yeshua, which is a stumble, but in some cases, it’s a drastic fall.

What was coming to my mind was the warning not to fall into doing what is right in your own minds, which I believe is carnally defined in Websters Dictionary as the capacity for the effective application of the powers of the brain as a basis for action or response: intelligence. Which Yahweh sees as idolatry. Romans 1:21-22

Apostle Paul relates how God deals with this form of belief v21: Because of that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. v22: Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. 

Now understand, we are learning about truth’s power to set us free. But physics tells us where there is an action there is a reaction. Yeshua describes the response, which I believe many do not realize the power of sin has over those who commit crime if they took the time to understand, possibly wouldn’t commit sin. This is Yeshua’s message to all in John 8: 34-35 v34: Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. v35: And the servant abideth not in the house forever: but the Son abideth ever. If the Son, therefore, shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.  

I’m closing with the following comments, which I firmly believe those reading these writings if doing the Audit and following the Lead of the Holy Spirit. Will, through  teachings, know in their hearts what Yeshua meant when He said: “the truth shall set you free.”

If it doesn’t, then, I believe Mr. Gill described you perfectly as one of the two Disciples, and you will know who you are. Mr. Henry stated what your position is as well, “many who profess themselves Yeshua’s disciples who are not his disciples indeed but only in show and name.”

My question to all, if you are not doing the Audit and cleaning house, why not? Yahweh has given us a chance to return to His flock. He is offering a pathway to Him through Yeshua’s Footprints, and as we have learned, it is going to be “TRUTH,” which is going to educate us and bring us closer to Yahweh and Yeshua.

I can see we are being offered an opportunity to know the truth and all that is needful and profitable for us to know, confirmed in the belief of it and definitely know the certainty of it. The blessing I received through writing this article is knowing I am in the darkness of the world, but God’s truth will feed me as one of God’s children, will bring me into His light and freedom from the darkness forever. I will first be a beacon reflecting His light into the darkness, so as a disciple, I can share His truth and Love.

As a 76-year-old man, I cannot understand how anyone would pass up this tender offer to do what God has called us to do which is simple once you take the time through Yeshua and the Holy Spirit’s leading to hearing Yahweh say “I JUST WANT YOUR LOVE AND OBEDIENCE.”   

From this day forward, when I say God Bless or God’s Speed, they both will have an entirely different meaning to me as both now represent His Truth.
