The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him, and he will show them his covenant.
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
In our world today, if one worships our Father in heaven with all your heart, soul, and strength, in the eyes and minds of the worldly you become a contagion, someone to be avoided. I ponder why? I wonder what it is or how we are to believe and worship as I know no other way.
I find it quite intriguing when an individual is seeking assistance and when you begin to reply and bring forward information that is scripturally sound, but contrary to the individual’s current beliefs and thought process. They either become busy or suddenly have an important meeting, or simply state they don’t believe that deeply or find it hard to believe that way.
I do not take offence but take a different approach to continue our conversation. However, I feel a sense of despair and remorse for the individual, knowing they were sincere about seeking support, but are living in fear.
However, they desire the help to come in a form which fits within their comfort zone and not bring forward a challenge or conviction towards their level of belief and relationship with Yeshua.
Does that mean they are not believers or walking in Salvation? Not at all; however, it shows a desire for help, but in a form that must be comfortable and within their immediate range of understanding.
Fear is a powerful opponent and holds many from seeking or receiving truth to enhance their walk. Fear can prevent movement forward or trusting in faith. Even the disciples who were in Yeshua’s presence and under his tutoring suffered from fear.
Mark 4:40-41 KJVS
And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?  And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
I realized Yeshua is preparing his flock step by step to overcome their fears and find those areas of life uncoordinated and operating in sin which many are fearful of facing and overcoming. Or have, through rationalizing and justifying, allowed in their lives a Luxurious sin.
When I analyze this whole situation, I am drawn to what, over the past years, the Lord has brought as gifts in the form of articles, https://romboughrobert.com/2020/12/09/are-you-coping-or-dealing-with-life-6/.
Where it is shown, this article is a method of personal discovery and freedom from fear. We should understand the Lord is providing us with tools; courage, strength, determination, and perseverance to begin a revealing search of our walk and personal relationship with Yeshua.
The next set of tools comes from this article, where we learned how to be prepared for persecution because of our belief and faith, and many will abandon us because of our fervent walk. https://romboughrobert.com/2021/02/07/timid-friends-4/
We were then brought to the knowledge of how to endure the upcoming persecutions, https://romboughrobert.com/2019/06/23/will-gods-work-be-seen/.
All of these tools were given for preparation, so why with all of these gifts, would an individual pull away? We found the answer to this question of how the world creates a barrier of fear that prevents movement forward and the ability to pull away from the gifts. https://romboughrobert.com/2020/12/11/video-asking-are-you-coping-or-dealing-with-life-2/
The focus on fear is improperly applied when we look to worldly wisdom for answers instead of focusing our fear on the Lord where all the answers lie. The enemy has as we have found in the previous article, convenient ways to rationalize walking away from the truth because they have learned how to justify fearing being responsible and accountable for their actions.
Being removed spiritually from our earthly temple, for some, is a doorway into a whole new world. For others, it represents a different doorway leading to an eternity without Yeshua and the eternal life of peace promised.
Here are moments those walking in the light of Yeshua as believers and followers might, at times, forget. Our fleshly vessel is our “Holy Temple,” which the Lord has placed the upkeep, care and responsibility, with us to maintain as such. 1Corinthians 3:16: Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
The next verse should be a staunch reminder not to take our temple for granted. It is not just a housing we spiritually dwell in while journeying through this life 1Corinthians 3:17 explains why we mustn’t fail to maintain our temple as commanded. “If any man defiles the temple of God, he shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple, are all of you?
The convincing part of this is when in Luke 21:8 Yeshua said to his disciples Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near; go ye not therefore after them. Now to further dispel the myth we look to 1Corinthians 15:33 Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. Or in Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked; for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
So the arming of the “Advanced Guard” will be “knowledge“ he is able to be deceived, becoming a part of his weaponry against deception. Their minds now open to truth and the light from God a primary condition for keeping the power of God. This weapon is so important when engaged in Spiritual Battles.
Remember, these messages are given by a humble servant obedient to our Lord Yeshua 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.
