Temptations?

August 9, 2019

Yeshua and Satan!

In the Gospel of Matthew/Levi we have the account of Satan coming face to face with Yeshau, whom He had not seen prior to His fall from the Heavenly order!

These events may seem strange to many readers and they are sometimes quickly over looked, but they are essential to Messianic Believers, because of their correlation to Ha Torah!

Satan makes three suggestions to Yeshua which are preposterous in what He thought He could achieve with the Son of Elohim? But they are essentials truths for us as believers to hold on too and not let ourselves be deluded by wealth, power, and the riches of this world that is in decay!

Matthew/Levi 4:4,    Deuteronomy 8:3.

            ”             4:7,    Deuteronomy 7:16.

           ”           4:10,     Deuteronomy 6:13.

Our Opportunities? Two.

July 11, 2019

Preaching the Good News!

This form of telling the lost world that they are in need of Salvation is not as popular as it once was? Believers are scared of the world, they lack trust and faith in Elohim, because they have encompassed the securities of Ha ‘Olam?

But this cannot be right and we daily face a cost for our faith, because it is hard to be a believer in Yeshua! We are saved is we continue to walk with Him and we also must tell others of the wonderful things that He has done for us, cost or not?

We are not of Ha ‘Olam, but have to continuing living in it and hope that by our witness others to will come to faith in Yeshua Ha ‘Adonai!

Matthew/Levi 10:7,   11:1,   Luke 11:32,   Acts 16:6,   Romans 2:16,   1 Corinthians 9:16,    2 Timothy 2:9.

Our Opportunities? One.

July 11, 2019

Sharing our faith in Yeshua!

Every moment should be an opportunity for us who believe in Yeshua to share Him with the far and near?

He has done great things for us, freed us from empty religious observance, from the curses of Ha ‘Torah by becoming that for us on the tree of redemption!

We have nothing to share, how can this be, unless of course we were never really born again?

Yochanan 3:3,   14-18,   Romans 3:22-23,   6:22-23,   1 Corinthians 10:16,   Galatians 6:10,  Hebrews 13:16. 

A daily Companion?

June 14, 2019

One who only we can Quash!

When we becomes believers today, we are given a friend by Elohim to help and comfort us in our walk with Yeshua!  He will lead us in prayer and speech, also we are given many gifts to use and in the process fine tune them?

We are no longer alone, yet we have to continue to live in the world we are no longer a part of the way it thinks and acts! We once were slaves to sin and all that is evil, but now that we are born-again/converted we have become slaves to doing what is right, honest and good or His righteousness!

Yocahnan 3:3, 14-18,   Acts 2:3-4,   Romans 5:10,    1 Corinthians 8:9,   Revelation 22:15.

Unbelief?

By traditional Judaism the lies and bribes given to cover the events of the rising of Yeshua Ha ‘Adon have remained to this day, but some Yehud’im know sort of believe He was a good man and nothing more than a Prophet?

Elohim has blinded the majority of the Jewish people from knowing the Messiah, but individuals are still allowed to come to faith in Yeshua! The reason for this blinding behind the vail is so that the Goyim may also come into this rest with Y’srael!

Faith is difficult for many to grasp, because it has nothing to do with the ritualism of claiming to keep Ha ‘Torah when we know that no one can actually keep all of it because of our inherited condition of sin and failures!

Psalm 69:22-23,   Matthew/Levi 17:23,    20:19,   Mark 9:22-23,   Yochanan 3:3, 14-18,   Acts 10:40,   Romans 11:7-11,   Colossians 2:8-15.

PESACH-EASTER. ONE.

Day Two!

We tend to runover the story of Easter very quickly without taking a deeper look at the seven key events of the period from the afternoon on the first day Friday of atonement to the morning of the third day of the resurrection?

In Matthew/Levi 27:44-66 we have seven to nine distinct events from the mockers on crosses beside Him, His death, the conversion of the Roman soldier, the tearing of the Temple veil,  earthquake, the resurrection of the dead believers in Yerushalayim,  His burial, Joseph of Arimathea, the accusers implying that He was a deceiver and Pilate putting a guard in the garden!

Elohim moved and so did Yeshua and despite these events which were scary the religious men still believed that He was a deceiver and wanted their will done! This is the continued human condition of unbelief that we must face everyday with Ha ‘Olim! But we know and have the truth and we must continue to stand for it because faith is far greater than any achievement of man and his mocking of Elohim!

Matthew/Levi 27:38,  44,   45-50,   51-53,   54,   55-56,   57-61,   62-66,   28:13.

Policing Social Media?

March 21, 2019

Living in the age of live Streaming!

There are many great dangers lurking within a click on the Internet and everyone of us today has access to the world from our mobile phones! We can talk, share, intimidate, scam and threaten others, by the various platforms of social interaction in the cyber world?

What happened in New Zealand was a terrible act, but You Tube and other similar outlets do not hesitate to show Islamic State and Palestinian militants beheading Christians and Israeli soldiers?

So we have come to the dilemma of the freedom of speech and expression! The one thing that we cannot deny is that Brenton Tarrant killed fifty people, without this essential evidence lawyers are waiting in the wings to get him possibly off on mental health issue charges?

Genesis 19:1,  Ruth 2:10,  Proverbs 3:29,  Matthew/Levi 9:2,  Acts 4:14,  2 Corinthians 13:3.

Love!

February 21, 2019

We cannot do without It?

If the world had more love, sympathy and understanding, would it be a better place? Sadly it might be improved, but sin that is an inherited stain on humanity would spoil it!

But we who claim to have faith, have to show what we say by putting into practise sympathy, understanding and love daily in our work, home, retirement, duty, and at school?

Without love there would be no feeling, passion, artistic expression in music, painting, writing, photography, design, invention, love for others, romance, sex, the fulfillment of life?

But with knowing Elohim and having that fulness of inner peace, power and love in Yeshua we have entered into the New Life today and for Eternity!

Psalm 98:1,   Yesha ‘Yahu 48:6,    65:17,   2 Corinthians 5;17,   Revelation 21:5.

Forgiving each Other!

February 7, 2019

Love, Marriage and Divorce?

Divorce was never in the vocabulary of Elohim, it was something forced upon Moshe by the people in the Sinai!

Next week millions will be spent of St. Valentines day in the annual day of slushy romance, many will propose and get married enjoying the aspect of the experience!

But about this time next year or the year after depending on the marriage date, they will be divorcing because I did not sign up to this?

We are all Sinners so the Complete Tanakh tells us and because of our fallen nature we are all selfish! This ugly monster is in each of us and it will come out from time to time in differing degrees! But the answer to the problem is to learn to forgive and press on, if we really love each other?

Since Elohim loved us, and gave us His one and only son, since He forgives us our failures, then we too must learn to forgive others!

Psalm 130:4,    Jeremiah 50:20,   Matthew/Levi 6:12-15,   18:21,   Yochanan 3:14-16,   20:23,   Ephesians 4:32,    Colossians 3:16.

Denial and Historical Revisionism?

It is now seventy-four years since the fall of Nazi-Germany and Jewish people still face an onslaught of unbelief from a new generation of educated people who refuse to believe the facts of the Holocaust!

Despite this being one front that is keeping the courts busy, we have to face another onslaught once more with anti-Israel boycotts over not giving the Palestinians their rights to a homeland that is another charade of western idealism?

No other nation, culture, race or religion on the face of our planet has, is, or will face such hatred and misunderstanding as the Jews! Even Christians now deny their faith in God to justify this hatred, but despite all of this negativity there remains many who continue to be faithful to stand-by and support Israel!

Exodus 13:9,   1 Chronicles 28:20,    Psalm 31:24,    Yesha ‘Yahu 44:25,   1 Corinthians 16:13,    Ephesians 6:10,    1 Timothy 1:10,    Revelation 18:8,    21,    21:8.
