Temptations?

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.

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.

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.

Another Year 2019!

But the same old Story?

We have to press on with our faith in Yeshua, but there are many out there who seek to undermine our religion and culture by re-writing history and denying Ha ‘Shoah!

They have denied the facts of history, as they deny the facts about Yeshua and His love for Y’srael! The fact that Elohim chose our people to possess the land that has been given back once more, for the day of His return!

We must share our faith, but also the truth about Nazi-Germany and its eugenics ideas in the deliberate destruction of the Jewish race?

Exodus 11:17,  14:25,  Y’hoshua 7:20,  Nehemiah 5:1,  Dani’EL  3:8,  Luke 2:34,  Romans 11:2. 

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!

Genesis 14:2,   31:26,   Joshua 11:20,   Psalm 120:7,   Luke 14:31,   2 Corinthians 10:3,  Alef Kefa 2:11,   Revelation 2:16.

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.

 

Abandonment! Two.

Rejection of the Truth?

Ritualism and tradition are very good ways to pretend to be keeping rules, while breaking every sing one of them! Many religions today worship idols and many who don’t believe in any Spiritual powers, still worship their achievements and things?

Humanity by our nature cannot escape belief in something, this has been proved time and again! We see it in Communism with man worship, in China with money and things, in the west with wealth and property?

The temporal will all fade away and what we claim to have abandoned will catch up with us on the Judgement Day, when the time for repenting and confessing our failures will have runout!

Today, now we can say sorry to Elohim, even if we have been a long time away! But you have been warned that these are serious matters that now need to be considered and decided upon?

Numbers 14:28,   Deuteronomy 4:29,  32:29,  Yov 8:5,   Amos 5:4,   Luke 19:10,   Acts 13:46,   Romans 6:11,  11:22,   Hebrews 10:24,   Ya’akov/James 5:11,   Revelation 9:6.

Abandonment. One.

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.

Being Heard?

The world does not always want to hear us even in the mundane of our conversation? It is full of selfish hearing, it wants gossip and lies and that how it exists!

But Elohim is always listening for the cries of despair and suffering and for the praise and joy of believers! He will answer us in His own way and time and that reply will be the right one for us!

He can say yes or no or wait and what ever He answers it will be the right help that we need to meet what ever situation that we might be in?

Yov 34:28,   Psalm 12:1,   Jeremiah 3:33,   Yesha ‘Yahu 42:20,   Ya’akov 5:4.
