Personal Declaration by Robert
The position on my stand with Yeshua and His Father Yahewa is the first commandment. I like Peter may have moments of doubt as he sunk in the water, but like Peter I will call out for Yeshua’s hand. My Stand is to be as dedicated to Yeshua as humanly possible in the spirit. My journey is through this world as a pilgrim knowing it will not be easy, but also know who will be waiting for me when my journey here concludes. What about YOU?
My pledge: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: As I again for the umpteenth time read this commandment recognized God, was letting us know He was not finished with us in having Him solely as our God, in verse 7 commanded: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. My question here on a very serious level, “IS MY STAND, YOUR STAND AS WELL?”
PRE-AMBLE by Robert
Leadership begins the very moment we believe in Yeshua for Salvation. Our search for additional information about the gifts within Salvation set us apart from the world. At this point, the direction we choose is in our hands. Will we be savoury Salt, or Salt to be discarded and trod upon.
Leadership is a choice only we can make. Let’s break it down so we can understand what has been shown to us. You will find there are two choices to be chosen from. But, only one identifies a leader in Yeshua’s definitions and eyes, the other is unsavoury and will be discarded.
To further emphasize it is our decision which savours of Salt we will choose to be. It is and always will be our choice.
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
The apostle James shows what is the proper use of the word of God, who they are that do not use it as they ought, and who they are that do make a right use of it, James 1:23-25.
Let us consider each of these distinctly. The use we are to make of God’s word may be learnt from its being compared to a mirror, in which a man may behold his natural face.
As a mirror shows us the spots and defilements upon our faces, so they may be remedied and washed off, the word of God reveals our sins, so we may repent of them and have them pardoned. It shows us what is amiss, that it may be amended. Some mirrors will flatter people, but that which is truly the word of God is no flattering mirror.
If you flatter yourselves, it is your own fault, the truth, as it is in Yeshua (Jesus Christ), flatters no man. Let the word of truth be carefully attended to, and it will set before you the corruption of your nature, the disorders of your hearts and lives, it will tell you plainly what type of salt you are, Savoury to season or Flat, to be trodden upon.
The following is an excerpt from the article “Our World,” published May 22, 2020. Have you noticed how quickly time is passing, not sure if it is old age or time is just speeding up? This matters little when you consider what indeed is occurring right before our eyes. We are busy working and living while our societal moralities are declining. We see the luxuries of our times as beneficial. And, as individuals, they have brought us comfort and instant gratification. However, they, in turn, have taken us into another realm of morality, one which is void of actual human conversation, the togetherness of people who share a commonality, merely being able to reach out and touch a fellow human.
In my youth, while reading Scriptures, I saw a prediction, “man’s consciences would be seared,” and, in the era, I read this, I pondered how this would be possible?
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, “that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils”. 1Timothy 4:1 As time progressed, it was becoming more evident, how, through the use of convenient tools and the advancement of technology, as a communal society, we’re drawing further apart and further from a sound moral base governing our lives.
Know your position, know your walk, know the depth of your faith, the time is now, your faith is being tested and measured. Do not fall into the delusions that all is peaceful. Do not be fooled, that you can walk both paths, or in half-truths, desiring the comforts and amenities of the world and believing you are under the wings of God while coveting the pleasures of the world.
CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert
If you believe this you’re the bullseye in the center of the target. A fact to remember God will not heal or forgive sins, so we can or will return to a sinful nature, the example I can site which is blatant in the modern-day churches, those who go through life having a “reprobate mind,” believe they can be forgiven and continue to walk within their lifestyle, next to Yeshua, not going to happen.
Know this as a sincere Born Again spirit our slate of sins were wiped away, we start at zero, what we record from there is on a personal level within our walk. We live under Grace having salvation which does not give us the right to continue sinning. Yeshua said you are healed, you are forgiven now go and sin no more. What more reason to use His 10 Commandments as a template to clean up our act (maybe get serious about our walk and commitment, as a believer, if you think you’re without sin, you’re in big trouble) and move through this world as pilgrims just passing through.
In this release, we will find the level of our effectiveness, as a leader identified by Yeshua in Matt.5:13. Leadership comes with the acceptance of the position and through knowledge and understanding of how to demonstrate it. As believers, whether you recognize it or not our walk through this world, is on display as a demonstration of our commitment to truth and Yeshua.
And as such makes us quasi type leaders, so it becomes us to garner the this role and take it seriously as our Father has asked us to do: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. My question here on a very serious level, “IS MY STAND, YOUR STAND AS WELL?” Can you or do you practice this every day, or is your talk about the troubles of the world, just pondering? Thus, righteous children of God, this is a sounding of the Trumpet. I know I am following the commandment when I am told I speak too much about God and His Son. Those in the darkness do not realize I am doing as commanded, but as well as seed planting, you can never sow enough seed.
Once we embrace the gifts within Salvation, it then becomes our duty to learn what they offer and how to properly use them. This is the working out of our Salvation learning to demonstrate the indwelling of Yeshua, who is constantly shaping and moulding us to be like Salt, which releases it’s savouring when applied. Not always welcome in abundance but always wanted as a flavouring.
The Lord says to teach the children, and as a Watchman, the Holy Spirit reveals many areas lacking in the Lord’s children’s lives and walk. To satisfy God’s command to teach, I share what the Holy Spirit reveals through the posted articles.
My reasoning is explained in Ezekiel 3: 20 – 21. Again when a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die. Because thou hast not given him a warning, he shall die in sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall be remembered, but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless, if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned, also thou hast delivered thy soul.
It becomes those who profess the gospel to strive for it, to use a holy violence in taking the kingdom of heaven. The faith of the gospel is the doctrine of faith or the religion of the gospel. There is that in the faith of the gospel which is worth striving for. If religion is worth anything, it is worth everything. There is much opposition, and there is a need for striving. “A man may sleep and go to hell, but he who will go to heaven must look about him and be diligent.“
CLOSING PRAYER by Robert
Heavenly Father, bring our lives into unison with Yeshua’s teachings and guidance out 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 shower discernment and recognition unto all of our heads 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 and weeks ahead. Fill us with your wisdom that we might share it as your love and compassion for those lost and confused. We pray in your name Yeshua AMEN AND AMEN
Please remember these articles are the work of a humble servant of Yeshua doing HIs bidding as a Watchmen sounding the Trumpet to warn of impending danger or error within the Assembly. May our Father abundantly bless each one of you with wisdom and discernment to go forward as “Modern Day Disciples.”
Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee, Trust ye in the Lord forever: for in the Lord Yeshua is everlasting strength. (Isaiah 26:3-4)
