Many Nations and Israel!

If one talks to older folks, you hear much about the past and the wars with their respective horrors, but today you can speak to refugees from Afghanistan and the Middle-East and hear much the same!

But when you speak with Israelis you learn quickly that they have to live with it, its like Beirut in the seventies or N-Ireland during the troubles?

People were at home and they had no where special they could go, maybe for a while a short move for a rest, but then you had to come home?

People today live in the inner cities around the world and now are getting a taste of some serious out of control crime, it not quite the same but it is bad when you loose a loved one, a child to stabbings!

Making the right Choice?

October 25, 2018

Redemption!

The Complete Tanakh says, ‘That we are all sinners!

That is the fact of humanity, we are born into inherited sin and this  marks out as failures before Elohim for the rest of our lives! This condition is another terminal illness, but humanity has as yet not been able to find a cure for it!

We can be self-achieving, learn to be confident and self-improve or otherwise be foolish or mad in evil and wickedness? But what ever road we should choose in the ideal of humanism it will not solve our condition!

Elohim has given to us His one and only Son Yeshau and by repenting and confessing our failures to Him, he will forgives and set us free by His redemptive work on the tree of cursing and His rising from the grave!

Yesha’ Yahu 1:18,   Zechariah 13:1,   Yochanan 3:3,   4-7,   15-18,    Acts 14:22,    Romans 3:22-23,   6:22-23,   1 Corinthians 6:11,   Hebrews 9:14,   13:12,   Alef Yochanan 1:7, Revelation 7:14.

 

Suffering for doing?

October 11, 2018

Good!

It is hard to be a believer in Yeshua, when we have been told from childhood that he was an imposter! The lie has stuck in our mindset that we dare not challenge it and so it is with all around us who remain in that same darkness that we were delivered from!

Our suffering is not just for believing, but also for doing good? This means doing good all the time, not just that one daily action!

When we tell the truth, we will be attacked for spoiling things? Those things could lead to some ones death, suffering, un-comfort or some other serious problems?

2 Timothy 3:12-13,  Job 27:6,  Mark 10:30,  Acts 14:22,  Alef Kefa 3:14,  Revelation 7:14.

The love of Elohim!

‘Not an excuse for Sin?

Today it is very hard to find believers who follow the teachings of the Complete Tanakh/Holy Bible, who are not adding things on that have nothing to do with Elohim!

Much of this comes from the lack of the ability to read the Tanakh/Bible and many believe that somehow Yeshua has done away with Ha ‘Torah/The Law, when in the Gospels we are told that He did not!

What is prevalent is the excuse to deliberately sin in the hope that God has forgiven and excused our future situation, but alas that is not how it works! The false ideas of ‘Once saved always saved, excuses sin and gives the impression that we can just say sorry sometimes and Elohim will let us off with it?

Accountability and responsibility are two of the most important actions of faith, how we appear to Ha ‘Olam will mark us out as wither we live by what we claim to be or show us to be hypocrites and thus loose our witness?

Exodus 34:6,   Deuteronomy 7:12,   Yochanan 3:3,   3:14-18,   2 Corinthians 9:13, Ephesians 2:4,   Alef  Yochanan 3:17,   Jude 1:21.

Atonement?

September 13, 2018

Sins to be dealt With!

How is this now to be sorted out since their has been no Temple in Jerusalem for the last one-thousand and nine hundred years?

It is ironic that some legal way has been made in Judaism to justify ways around this but, the truth is that with the advent of Yeshua there is no need of either sacrifices of animals or a building!

Since we can call on Him confess and repent of our failures and Elohim will have mercy on us, but repentance is not something that excuses us to return back to sin again and again but rather that we will be changed by Ruach Ha’Kodesh into a new people

Jeremiah 31:34,   1 Corinthians 11:25,   Ephesians 2:13,   Hebrews 9:28.

Another Year!

Over the years of writing this blog post one has not moved on to change the emphasis, this is because for our little nation wither one believes in it or not will be attacked again and again?

Arab nations, the Muslim religion, western liberalism and now anti-Semitism is coming to the fore in places that we thought were done with this, learning from their own historical failures?

But we must recognise that sin, being an inherited condition continues to work in the hearts of each of us! The writer of Ecclesiastes was correct when he said, ‘That there was nothing new under the sun!

What is more important is the knowledge that we have found Yeshua Adonai as the Lord and master of our lives and that we continue to walk with Him, awaiting that great day of His return!

Yochanan 14:28,  1 Thessalonians 1:10,   Hebrews 1:2-3,   10:37,   Yesha ‘Yahu 51:11, Zechariah 1:3,   Malachi 3:18,   Luke 12:36,   Alef Kefa 3:4.

Abandonment. One.

August 16, 2018

Departing or giving Up?

It is very hard to be a believer in Yeshua, because we will be both rejected by our families and cut off! They in their religious observance and the lies they have been imparted with from generations will imply that we are mentally imbalanced!

Faith has been lost in ritualism over that of keeping the impression of Ha ‘Torah and then living anyway one wants! But sadly there is a time coming when many believers will abandon the faith and follow deceiving teachings that please themselves.

We are now living in this age of a sexual revolution, which the Complete Tanakh tells us is nothing new but rather very old!

1 Timothy 4:1,  Numbers 24:14,  Dani’EL 11:25,  Genesis 3:4-5,  Leviticus 20:13.

The Temple! Two.

July 20, 2018

Focus on being Born-Again?

Today there is no Temple in Yerushalayim, but right-wing and Orthodox Y’hudim are planning to build a new one before the coming of their false Moshia!

But for all believers the Apostle Paul (Shual) tells us that we are the Temple of Ruach Ha ‘Kodesh and He is precious to us as a guide and helper or comforter! Known in the Greek of the New Testament as Paraclete, the word encompasses many meanings along the lines that we have already covered!

One day when we all make it home to the New Heavenly Yerushalayim, there will no longer be a need for any kind of Temple, since the light of Yeshua will illuminate us and it!

Exodus 25:9-26:30,  1 Kings 6:3-33,   Psalm 61:4,   Acts 7:44,   1 Corinthians 3:16-17,  Hebrews 9:1-11,  13:10,   Revelation 21:3,  22.

The Temple! One.

July 5, 2018

The focus of Y’srael.

In times past the Temple was the focus of the people to bring their sacrifices for their failures to be offered by the priestly order, it was the central place of worship for Ha Y’hudim and the dwelling of Elohim on Earth!

But because of the sin, ignorance and arrogance of the people and the way that the Prophets were mistreated as they tried to warn the Kings that they were going against the will of Elohim to submit, two Temples were destroyed and the nations scattered to the four winds of the Earth via Babylon!

Yeshua told the people two-thousand years ago that their failure to trust in Elohim and to believe in Him was their ruin, because they were trusting in stones and religious duties over that of faith!

Luke 21:6,   1 Kings 9:7-9,   Yesha ‘Yahu 64:10-11,   Jeremiah 26:18,   Lamentations 2:6-8,   Zechariah 14:2,   Matthew/Levi 24:2,   Mark 13:2.

The value of Prayer?

Many people today live extremely busy lives, they actually have taken on much more than they thought they could handle? Both believers and Ha ‘Olim  have so many problems and the despair that comes with them!

The communication line with Elohim is always open for everyone, race, colour, religion or none that are alive today on Earth and in Space! He wants to hear from us in prayer, He wants to understand the difficulties that we may be facing and He wants to help to sort our lives out!

What Elohim has to offer is free and of far superiority than the multitude of councillors and psychologist, many that do not come cheap!

Psalm 5:2-3,   50:15,  122:6,   Jeremiah 33:3,  Matthew/Levi 5:46,  6:6,  Mark 11:25,  Luke 11:2,  Acts 8:22,   Romans 8:26,  10:12-13,   1 Corinthians 14:15,  1 Thessalonians 3:10,  Philemon 1:6,   Hebrews 13:8,   Gimmel Yochanan (3 John) 1:2.
