Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.  But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Matthew 24:42-43
PRE-AMBLE by Robert
I am writing this article as a follower of Yeshua, not after any literary fashion but from the heart after meditation and fervent prayer, my answer I am about to put on paper is not in the spirit of judgment. The Lord has shown me the following question to share with all who would read hear and discern whether non-believer or follower of Yeshua, Jew or proclaimed Christian WHY DO YOU FOLLOW GOD, YESHUA? This sounding of the Trumpet is a spiritual audit for all and may the Lord bring discernment, understanding, and acceptance through it.
Yeshua has laid before me a question which appears as pure as possible yet when I am about to state my answer it becomes the most in-depth question I have ever faced. Initially, when I approach this issue, it appears to be one about my faith and obtaining salvation. I recognize and accept salvation comes to me through grace, hope, faith and my acceptance of Yeshua as my saviour and the only way to be in the presence of God. I recognize there are multitudes of gifts, crowns and all will be before the throne of God facing the final judgment.
What I’m about to express is part of my answer of why I follow Yeshua and His teachings. When I study the scriptures, I see that God cannot nor will He have enmity in His presence. So what I have surmised from the Scriptures is all will be judged. (Heb 10:12 – 23).
Why is this important for all to know these days? What does this have to do with those who have accepted Yeshua and in hope and faith received Salvation? Why, would the Lord pose this question to all? Why would He have His Watchmen Sound their Trumpets, what is there to be warned about?
OPENING PRAYER by Robert
Heavenly Father, thank you for searching the depth of our faith. I petition you Lord for wisdom to be upon those reading this article, lift them and deepen their discernment and understanding. Bring unto them a spirit of calm so any decision they make in respect to their spiritual walk and relationship with you Lord would be an informed one, void of emotions and worldly desires. I ask Father for you to remove any cords and bindings causing confusion within their minds. So, they might receive all and any information the Holy Spirit, will reveal to be used as the foundation of their future spiritual decisions, as they continue their journey. I pray this in your name in the name of Yeshua AMEN and AMEN.“
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
When I first looked at this question, I quickly understood there was not going to be a right or wrong answer. And there would be millions of answers each being correct, as it would represent the personal feelings of each individual towards his walk with Yeshua. It became apparent what our Father was asking was personal yet He wanted it shared as a warning.
After taking the time to thoroughly look at this question, from a worldly perspective, clearly, it was a call to not become complacent in our walks, as followers and believers. Knowing non-believer’s would not understand this calling nor receive it unless those believers who heard the Trumpet would share and interpret it.
The question takes on the point of view of how deep Faith is and how it becomes a part of our walk and believe it or not non-believers have a form of faith they hold onto it’s just channelled towards another way of understanding or accepting what they think and believe how God fits in their lives.
While ministering to a follower of our Lord who was [ I emphasize] suffering from a serious debilitating malady. The Lord revealed, why we do not always receive healings in the flesh. I have in earlier articles stated nothing happens in the flesh that it has not already occurred in the Spirit.
Thus if we desire through prayer for the Lord to heal us in the flesh and we pray for it through the flesh it will not happen, (James 4:3) Ye ask, and receive not because ye ask amiss that ye may consume it upon your lusts. Being in the flesh, we have the following with us at all times Pride, Vanity, Luxury, and Sensuality.
These are the things being in the flesh will negate prayer, only, because we do not recognize them as part of our lives or simply believe they are a part of our personality. So realizing that even with Salvation for the Lord to operate fully in my life I need to develop and deepen my Faith.
Knowing my walk now must be in the spirit and not after the flesh, which is Pride, Vanity, Luxury, and Sensuality. These would be what I would be serving if Yeshua healed me through the flesh.
Then my awareness of having Yeshua in my life through hope and exercising Faith and accepting Yeshua as my Saviour allowed me to obtain Salvation, but nothing further at that time.
What the Lord revealed when asking “WHY DO YOU FOLLOW GOD, and HIS SON YESHUA,” was, I should be observing the depth of my faith and what am I doing to deepen it or more so strengthen it, as well learning how to use it without a doubt.
Yeshua desires his followers to audit how many dependencies are they placing on Pride, Vanity, Luxury, and Sensuality as we further our walk without recognizing, sensing or realizing these are what we are relying and depending on.
CLOSING PRAYER by Robert
Father in heaven, in placing this petition before your throne, through the new heart you have given us. We are grieved and saddened, many are not hearing your words. We are brought to tears, Lord, seeing so many will face you in Eternity and will suffer a second death. We are now asking Father for more profound knowledge, a greater desire to continue sharing and warning. “Oh,” Lord, fill us with more of your compassion, determination, and understanding of your Grace. We plead Lord for your Grace and Patience to continue, while you have the Holy Spirit instructing us on how to use your parables and sayings to bring forward your love and forgiveness. In all of this Lord, we ask that in our desire to serve, it be only in your will, Father. This we pray in your name Yeshua, Amen, and Amen.
CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert
The following is my answer to the question and I believe they are the most accurate assessment I can share, “why”, I follow Yeshua. As Bunnie Marie (my wife of 28 years) and I go through the scriptures sharing our findings, discernments, and interpretations. We recognize Faith has become the most important item in our walk and quest to deepen and draw closer to “Yeshua.”
So to understand how deep our walk was becoming, I needed to seriously look at whether I had just taken faith for granted. Because we had hope and faith and received Salvation, and the Lord changing our walk and deepening our seeking after Yeshua, so were we thinking our faith was automatically going to deepen.
What I quickly realized was the desire I had developed in the early stages of my walk to draw closer to Yeshua, however, I hadn’t actually taken the time to develop a way of knowing how deep my faith was while drawing closer. Remember I was assuming it would automatically deepen and grow. As I looked at answering this question I realized there was still a dependency on the faith which drew me into following Yeshua, which is not wrong just not deep enough.
But there was no depth to it as it stood it was strong and permanently in place, however, if I was called to actually rely on my faith as Peter did when he stepped from the boat to walk on water when Yeshua called him. Would I even be able to do as Peter did until he doubted and sank? You see Peter’s faith when he stepped out of the boat was deep and without doubt initially, then he realized what he was doing and sunk. Even Peter didn’t know how deep his faith had become while following and learning from Yeshua and what profound effect it had on him and his faith.
Yeshua, by calling on Peter to walk over to him on the water was demonstrating how powerful, personal faith, can be without a doubt, once we learn to exercise and accept it as such.
When we take for granted, where our walk is, and where we believe it to be headed, unless we stop and answer “WHY DO YOU FOLLOW GOD, and YESHUA” we may never see realize or understand the true depth of and about our faith and its effect on our walk.
I ponder how Yeshua endured what he did while walking this earth and did so as an example of what it is going to take for us to truly follow in His footsteps. Our times are perilous and becoming even more so with the political and religious carrying on occurring. None of us should take for granted what may transpire in the very near future and begin measuring whether you have the depth of faith to step out onto the water as Peter did and walk towards our Father or heed His call to us for whatever matter.
We can Verbalize our faith and believe in our minds there is no doubt or fear but until we truly are tested, and measured, will we know. What I am trying to understand, is how our Lord while walking through the crowds knowing there were some who hated him and what he stood for. I see Him in my mind, Yeshua, walking peacefully exercising His faith, knowing His Father was with Him, protecting Him guiding Him.
It is here, I recognize how to deepen my faith, learn when and why to use it, without a doubt, knowing that in all things I do are in the Spirit, through Yeshua. As Yeshua knew His Father, was working through His flesh, so will He do through our flesh!
Remember I stated nothing happens in the flesh that has not already occurred in the Spirit. This principle applies to all things Spiritually in our lives. So like Peter we need to step out onto the water in faith without a doubt and begin walking without a doubt in our Faith, knowing, Yeshua is with us in all things.
Why is the Lord asking us to do an audit on our Faith drawing us into searching our walks? Teaching us how to deepen our understanding of how to use that faith no matter how deep our walk is or will become. Why is He including non-believers in this sounding of the TRUMPETERS horn, what is it He is preparing all for?
“ALL HEAR THE SOUNDING OF THE TRUMPET!”
The times are perilous, and the clouds of deception have become darker deeper and carrying greater craftiness, cunningness, deceitfulness, fakery and wiliness. They are going to trap and ensnare, those who are not prepared to battle, within the spirit, who do not or have not prepared themselves to walk in Faith without a doubt that Yeshua is working through their flesh to guide and protect. There will be many who will begin a good fight but like Peter when doubt enters will succumb to the evil presented to them. Know ye this all are going to be tested in their faith no matter what form believer or non-believer.
HERE ENDS THE TRUMPET’S SOUNDING!
I pray all will hear prepare and share, as there is a great “Spiritual Battle” developing to occur in the very near future. This evil is not taking prisoners and is the foulest our time has ever seen showing no mercy.
HEAVENLY FATHER I come before you as a humble servant and petition you Father to rain discernment unto all in this world that they would know and understand what is about to rain down on them Spiritually. Show them Father as in the days of Noah where they were dancing and partying what is about to befall them. I pray this in your name Lord in the name of Yeshua. Amen and Amen.
For what it is worth, I am communicating this preparatory information as a call to arms for those in the “Advanced Guard.” Please note, most followers will not recognize this danger, until it is possibly too late. Brothers and Sisters in Yeshua this is our calling as the “Advance Guard” to bring this call show our brothers and sisters not take this lightly, heed it do their audit, to know the depth of their faith, as it is going to be spiritually tested, the evil is going to manifest itself physically against you and them. Whether they believe it or not and I pray you and they will hear acknowledge and move forward in prayer, discernment and understanding as the guard, not the 500.
Remember, these messages are given by a humble servant obedient 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.
