To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of PEACE. Luke 1:79 is my definition of Peace which I live by daily and give thanks to Yeshua as it is a part of my life’s journey as a Pilgrim to Eternal life and Peace.
PRE-AMBLE by Robert
As I walk daily through my journey, I am finding there is not one secular definition which can define, Peace, most in this world seek! Secularly, the word peace has many different uses and meanings it can be used to signify keeping one’s thoughts to themselves. It can be used to define the surroundings and the condition of those within those surroundings. It can be used to determine the ending of a major conflict (war). As I said, peace has multiple definitions. I was shown by the Holy Spirit throughout the Scriptures we can find many forms of Spiritual Peace which will over time define and shape our being and walk within that definition. This article will bring forward information which I pray will challenge all to seek a measure of understanding where they are spiritually in their relationship with Yeshua. The time and conditions of what is considered peace is the calm before a Spiritual storm.
Folks the Lord has placed this before me. To deepen the messages and bring forward information which is asking you to measure your walk and relationship to Yeshua. If you follow Canadian politics, you know our trails are perilous and are filled with treachery; if American you recognize the Democratic Party won the majority of their House of Representatives and this party has declared it is anti-Christian. I am researching an article just published where the DNC stated Christian followers and believers in Yeshua, are the poison of the USA. As soon as I have more details, I will share. As well throughout North America Antisemitism has reared its ugly head and is becoming more prevalent within our societies throughout the world.
I am calling on all to be observant and know your surroundings and those within it. Being aware is our first line of protection against persecution of either spiritual walk. We know through 2Cor.12:9 And he said unto me, My Grace is sufficient for thee. For my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly, therefore, will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Yeshua may rest upon me.
Yes, we are protected but recognize there will be infirmities which our Lord did not Identify, but related they will occur. Be wise know the depth of your walk and relationship with Yeshua as the evil represented as Political Correctness spreads its foolishness, which has gripped this world, deepens, so do different types of dangers within the world increase. This period of pacifism we are currently living in represents the calm before the storm. It is a time for us to learn, examine, prepare and definitely draw closer to our Savior Yeshua. Those having the spirit of Salvation will know and understand what I am revealing and place all into prayer and preparation to hear the guidance from the Holy Spirit. Understand the Lord will provide a way through and out of the trials and tribulations to come. However, understand and recognize there will be troubled times for all believers. We must always go in Peace, strength, and under the guidance of our Lord Yeshua as His Assembled children.
OPENING PRAYER by Robert
Our Father in heaven hears our petitions which we place before His throne. We know Lord there are troubled times ahead and ask for you to take us and spiritually melt us down and fire us seven times to purify and reshape us, into the pure medal you have created us to be. Strengthen our minds to endure and hold wisdom to act through understanding and your will Father, not out of malice, spite or worldliness. We pray Lord as you did for the disciples journeying during a stormy sea, which caused fear among them, to calm our tumultive surroundings creating fear within us but fill us with courage and determination. Remove any and all spirits of fear, doubt, and shortcomings within our walk. Sharpen the two-edged swords you have provided through the Holy Spirit by filling us with your discerning words so we might speak wisely, through humility offering your grace, forgiveness, and gifts within your Salvation. This we pray in the name of Yeshua Amen and, Amen.
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
I stated in one of my short articles about being able to discern and understand the Holy Spirits lessons and messages. In that article, I revealed too understand
God’s words, you need to have God’s spirit with you, which awakens within you when you receive “Salvation.” (John 8:47) He that is of God heareth God’s words ye, therefore, hear them not, because ye are not of God.
Shortly after it was published I was questioned, so you mean man’s wisdom alone is not enough, and if not why not we are intelligent. I referred the questioner to 1Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of
God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
If you follow Baal, Yeshua explains in John 8:43 and 44 Why do you not understand my speech even because ye cannot hear my word. V44. Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar. And the father of it.
Something to ponder on we have been warned about how subtle sin is and how easy it is to walk in a delusion and not realize it possibly until it is too late. I challenge you now to measure if you hear the leading of the Holy Spirit. Or are you walking with the spirit received at Salvation and just ignoring him? Like Yeshua points out in John 8:45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
When I hear this and look at the condition of the world, I recognize which path many are walking on even many professing to be on the narrow road. To hear the Holy Spirit, you must be reborn in the spirit to listen to Yeshua’s voice through the Holy Spirit. Know this through our acceptance of Yeshua and development of a healthy relationship, we inherit the very same gifts bestowed upon Him by His Father. For me, the most important contribution is the ability to hear God speaking to me through His Son and the Holy Spirit. Think about that through one of God’s gifts, I a humble servant, obedient unto Yeshua, God’s Son. Who He sent to bring all of His great promises one of which is His greatest gift an opportunity to receive God’s Love, Compassion, Grace and Forgiveness. Through these gifts, I realize the road to peace is diligently sharing Our Father’s Love via His Grace so abundantly available.
Thank You, Lord, for all which I am receiving through humble obedience to your simple calling “Follow Me.” Many wonder how with all the turmoil happening all around me I can be at peace. I gain a massive amount of inspiration from Matthew Henry’s comments on this topic and shared the following from Romans 8:10 – 17: And if Yeshua is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Yeshua from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Yeshua from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. Therefore brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die. But if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit that we are the children of God.
In these verses, the apostle represents two more excellent benefits, which belong to true believers. “If Yeshua is in you. Observe, If the spirit is in us, Yeshua is in us. He dwells in the heart by faith, (Ephesians 3:17) Now we are here told what becomes of the bodies and souls of those in whom Yeshua is. We cannot say but that the body is dead it is a frail, mortal, dying body, and it will be gone shortly it is a house of clay, whose foundation is in the dust. The life purchased and promised does not immortalize the body in its present state. It is dead, that is, it is appointed to die, it is under a sentence of death. As we say one that is condemned is a dead man. In the midst of life, we are in death. Be our bodies ever so strong, and healthful, and handsome, they are as good as dead (Hebrews 11:12), and this because of sin. It is a sin which kills the body. The death even of the bodies of the saints is a remaining token of God’s displeasure against sin.
Here then lies the challenge, many pursue to create the perfect sculpture of their bodies and dedicate themselves to this feat. Then there are those who desire to improve and edify their minds and devote themselves to this feat. My challenge, if you are so dedicated to the worldly achievements, I ask you then to use this same amount of dedication to improving your spiritual relationship with Yeshua to be prepared to receive your Spiritual gifts in Eternity. You see the rewards you receive worldly in achieving a healthy sculptured body or mind is short lived as when the body returns to dust all those rewards fade and die with it.
Matthew Henry (1662 – 1774) continues to explain, But the spirit, the precious soul, that is life it is now spiritually alive, nay it is life. Grace in the soul, while the life of the sinner goes no further than the body. When the body dies and returns to the dust, the spirit of life, not only living and immortal but swallowed up of life. Death to the saints is but the freeing of the heaven-born spirit from the clog and load of this body that it may be fit to partake of eternal life. The righteousness of Yeshua imputed to them secures the soul, the better part, from death the righteousness of Yeshua inherent in them, the renewed image of God upon the soul, preserves it, an, by God’s ordination, at death elevates it, and improves it, and makes it meet to partake of the inheritance of the saints in light. The eternal life of the soul consists in the vision and fruition of God, and both assimilating, for which the soul is qualified by the righteousness of sanctification. Refer to Psalms 17:15, I will behold thy face in righteousness, I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.
We hear from Spiros Zodhiates Th.D (1922 – 2009) comments on Psalms 17:15 In this verse the reward of God’s people is summed up as enjoying His presence. This reward is all a result of God’s grace, apart from any merit of man (Matt.20:14 Heb 11:16) All those whose names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will experience this bliss. Scripture this is called “being with Yeshua. (John 12:26) “beholding His glory” (John 17:24), and “being glorified with Him” (Rom. 8:17, 18, Col.3,4) All Saints (Psalm 16:3) will reign with Yeshua, and sit in judgment even over angels (Dan,7:22; Matt.19:28).
CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert
Things of this world are called treasures, and accounted so; but to the soul, and when compared with eternal blessings, they are trash. The most afflicted Believer need not envy the most prosperous men of the world, who have their portion in this life. Clothed with Yeshua’s righteousness, having through his grace a good heart and a good life, may we by faith behold God’s face, and set him always before us. When we awake every morning, may we be satisfied with his likeness set before us in his word, and with his image stamped upon us by his renewing grace? Happiness in the other world is prepared only for those that are justified and sanctified: they shall be put in possession of it when the soul awakes, at death, out of its slumber in the body, and when the body awakes, at the resurrection, out of its sleep in the grave. There is no satisfaction for a soul but in God, and in his good will towards us, and his excellent work in us; yet that satisfaction will not be perfect till we come to heaven. Psalms 16:11 Thou wilt show me the path of life. In thy presence is the fullness of joy, at thy right hand, there are pleasures forevermore.
Most take the world for their chief good and place their happiness in the enjoyments of it. But however poor my condition is in this world, let me have the love and favor of God, and be accepted of him; let me have a title by the promise to life and happiness in the future state, and I will have enough. Heaven is an inheritance; we must take that for our home, our rest, our everlasting good, and look upon this world to be no more, than the country through which is our road to our Father’s house.
CLOSING PRAYER by Robert
In heaven, we find our gracious Father who we sing praises to who we pray to, who we love and serve as His adopted children. We come before your throne to say thank you Lord for your promises of a life filled with Grace and Peace. We give thanks to you Father for the protection, wisdom, courage, discernment, and determination to be your humble servants. We pray Lord for your continued sharing of your light for us to see the narrow path but to share it so others may find it. We pray this in your name YESHUA Amen, and Amen.
Remember these messages are the work of a Watchman who is a humble servant of our Lord dedicated to bringing forward our Lord’s words to His flock of impending dangers they might encounter.
Brother’s and Sister’s go in everlasting Peace crying out to “ABBA FATHER” thank you. I want to close with Matthew 5:9 “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Luke 1:79 is my definition of Peace which I live and walk by daily and give thanks to Yeshua as it is a part of my life’s journey as a Pilgrim to Eternal life and Peace.
