“And let us not be weary in well-doing, for in due season we shall reap if we faint not. “Galatians 6:9″
OPENING COMMENTS: By Robert, I like many followers of Yeshua state I want to follow in His footsteps a beautiful way to honor Him and our walk. I have always maintained we need to develop a personal relationship with Yeshua and learn what it means to place your foot into His Footprint.
Most, including the writer, did not completely understand what this statement meant on a spiritual level mainly because we as followers were not being taught at a spiritual level. Many of the teachings today are of a humanistic nature-worshipping a god who is being presented in the image of man rather than the deity God truly is.
The Spiritual leaders of today, [not saying all], but a great many have allowed their teachings to become filled with human aspirations, Political Correctness so as not to offend rather than be led by the Holy Spirit who exalts God and His Son Yeshua as the Deities they are.
I make this statement because the teachings being received in many of what are called churches today represent weekly entertainment centers or gathering places for like-minded fellowship and edification of the worldly god most have come to worship.
An image made like to corruptible man which involves global issues affecting the environment, politically and socially. They give the appearance of being a church and in reality, are headed up by a hireling teacher leading a flock of deluded followers.
Each week attend a service prescribed by a group of hireling teachers who participate in a group meeting to agree on their collective sermon in the name of their god. But, only personifies the worldly image they have created and accepted as their god (Romans 1:21) Because 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.
THE LESSON: I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE: NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER BUT BY ME (John 14:6)
Here we are days after hearing the “Watchman sounding his warning” having to make our decision whether to walk in God’s law and follow Him and Him only. I made my choice and began the complete audit of my walk and measure of Faith.
Some areas were found needing attention, perhaps because like some I allowed complacency and possibly a bit of arrogance or say a sliver of pride to creep in. By doing so, could I have fallen into a misguided path following what I believe, is God, only to realize Yahweh just called me out, called me to measure my walk, audit my beliefs, check the depth of my faith, and learn who, or what it is I’m putting my faith in?
The question now, will I be sincere in doing the audit and believe what was found? Have I become so comfortable and confident in my personal walk with Yeshua I unconsciously let things slip? Have I been listening to all the praise and accolades spoken about my walk I possibly strayed a smidge off the path?
Then being comfortable have I succumbed to the temptations of being accepted and comfortable at work, church, and my community? Now having these questions before me the greatest of them I haven’t even asked as I knew it was going to take me to the very core of who I really am in drawing closer to and developing my personal relationship with Yeshua. (John 14:6).
How prepared am I to face these truths? Can I be genuine and accept those things twisted in my walk knowing facing them is going to change my life and walk? Will I seek out God’s truths and suffer them as the changes they represent or fall back into the comfort of the familiar unoffending walk God just called me out of?
At this point, Yahweh through the Holy Spirit was showing me to introduce all to one of His greatest teachers of over 2000 years. I am lead to publishing sections of The Epistles of Paul to The Romans. With Commentary from the Hebrew-Greek Study Bible King James version and various Commentaries. Paul was writing to a predominately Gentile audience. His primary concern was to educate the believers in the core doctrines related to Salvation and to assist them to understand the unbelief of the Jews at that time.
I am asking those reading this article to use their imaginations and believe Paul is writing to you directly and in so doing wants to meet with you as he did those believers of that era. I am going to italicize his words and transcribe them as though we were receiving his letter directly today and receiving his teachings directly from him throughout this article.
Romans 1:11 “For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established; v12: that is that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me. v13: Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto) That I might have some fruit among you also, even as among Gentiles. v14: I am debtor both to the Greeks and to the Barbarians; both to the wise and to the unwise. v15: So as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are in Rome also”.
At this point, I am being guided to Romans1:16 to bring forward what the Holy Spirit is revealing as answers to those areas we found in error through our audit. (Of course, I am assuming the audit will be done once you have read this calling) So unlike those of the modern day churches who teach without offense, we find Paul talking to us directly and explaining the following from:
Romans 1;16 For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. v17: For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written. The just shall live by faith. v18: For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness: v19: Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. v20: For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse”.
HEBREW-GREEK STUDY BIBLE COMMENTARY BY Spiros Zodhiates, Th.D. How is it then after Paul explains how we are shown that by looking at nature, one can observe that God is indeed all-powerful, but creation *** does not necessarily reveal that He is an all-loving God of righteousness and justice. There is only so much of God that one can know from God’s creation (Romans 1:19). However, in order to know the essence of God as a triune Deity one needs to receive His revelation by faith”.
*** ROBERT’S COMMENTS I believe Mr. Zodhiates Th. D. in identifying how we know God as a deity through creation is actually identifying how any church by accepting the theory of evolution is setting aside God’s deity being identified through Creation as evidence of God’s power. Thus causing their followers to stumble and fall away from God’s laws and truths causing them to be in error. Thus Yahweh’s continuous reaching out to those within this eschewed walk wanting them to return to His word. God uses what He created the environment as a form of gaining our attention and to show without injury nor death He is in charge. (Isaiah 29:6)
“Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, and with an earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.” Which has nothing to do with Climate Change as Yahweh is making it happen to gain the Worlds attention, but the World is not listening! The world is caught up in the delusion the children of God their actions are causing these anomalies, not Yahweh.
2Kings 17:14-15 identifies how Yahweh’s Children strayed from recognizing God CREATED all things by substituting and accepting the theory of Evolution. Putting God’s Children in the following position which the great prophet Elijah teaches how in 2Kings 17:14: Notwithstanding they would not hear, but hardened their necks, like to the neck of their fathers, that did not believe in the Lord their God. v15: And they rejected his statutes, and his covenant that he made with their fathers, and his testimonies which he testified against them, and they followed vanity, and became vain, and went after the heathen that were round about them, concerning whom the Lord had charged them, that they should not do like them.
Now referring back to the Watchman’s Warning where Climate Change was identified as the modern day religion of BAAL in the warning, we were shown a choice was to be made if Yahweh then follow Yahweh, if Baal then follow Baal, there is no in between.
I believe here is where God is opening a door for those following the Climate Change agenda to recognize they may not realize who or what it is they are following or that they may inadvertently be associated with BAAL worship. Yahweh is calling these His children out of the Climate Change agenda as well as the worldly churches and their false teachings and to change their walks. The prophet Elijah identifies how God has warned us what not to be a part of “and went after the heathen that were around about them, concerning whom the Lord had charged them, that they should not do like them”. We need to through searching the scriptures find and know who it is we are following make the necessary changes which will bring us back to seeking a presence with Yahweh via His Son Yeshua’s guidance through the Holy Spirit.
One thing I must share with you “evil comes disguised in many forms as an example the Climate Change movement is deeply entrenched in the Goddess GAIA Mother Earth movement. Which when you check it out through the links in the Watchman’s Warning you will find a cesspool of Witchcraft, Sorcerers, Wicca’s and many other forms of evil. So if your choice remains supporting the Climate Change movement in the belief, you are going to somehow save the World and stay with God. Hear what Paul teaches in Romans 6:13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
In response to Pauls teachings in Romans 6:13 what will or has taken place is expressed by commentator F. B. Myer “They will not lift their happy faces toward him with filial confidence. Thus heavy darkness steals over them and veils his presence. The next downward step is uncleanness, and when once men have deliberately chosen the downward path, there is nothing to stop them. They go headlong from one point to another in their descent into darkness. When our hearts turn from the purifying presence of God, they become the haunt of every bird and noisome reptile. What a marvel it is that out of such material God can even create saints” Bible Commentary.
Mr. Myer is stating the actual consequences of making an uninformed decision, I believe you need to think before you make your choice to continue in your present state. Mr. Myer clearly points out remaining where you are is seen as a deliberate choice and once made becomes a slippery slope into darkness and God will abandon you. We see Paul teaching this in Ephesians 4:18-19 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart. v19: Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
CLOSING COMMENTS; By Robert Remember this is from a 73 -year-old who hopefully like you has chosen to put his foot into the first footprint of Yeshua and is realizing how enlightening this journey is going to be. However, I also recognize truths will be revealed which might not be liked or considered acceptable as they clash with the humanistic desire to rescue and save the world and all in it. At times questions and periodically resistance to some teachings and truths will occur. However, studying the Scriptures and acceptance will happen to represent a resolve to continue walking in Yeshua’s footprints while following the Holy Spirits guidance. In the book of Acts Luke, the Physician reveals our strength and witnesses are going to come from the Holy Ghost in Acts 1:18 and Paul’s teachings our discoveries will come through the work of creation in Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of God as He works in Secret.
As quoted from Matthew Henry’s Commentary “We are witness to the Roman’s, the wisest of all, worshiped the furies. And on this day the poor Americans worship the thunder while the ingenious Chinese adore the devil. Thus the world by wisdom knew not God 1Corinthians 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God, the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
Isn’t it strange the Climate Change movement feels they are above believing God might have anything to do with our climate and the events of this world! Matthew Henry quoted “The plain truth of the being of God would not content them they thought themselves above that, and so fell into great errors.”
May the Lord keep you and bless you as you go forward in this Journey. This is the first of many articles which are going to reveal what each footprint of Yeshua holds for us as we step into them going forward to discover Yahweh’s blessings Laws and Covenants.
