Blessings of our beloved ABBA ADONAI ELOHIM YHWH in the blessed name of HIS SON our MESSIAH Y'SHUA/JESUS CHRIST through HIS HOLY SPIRIT. Amen.
Greetings One and All!
Rain, sun, snow, it doesn't matter ... it's a glorious day today for it's another day our CREATOR has given to us! Whenever you read this PM (especially after May 21, 2011) it's because our ABBA ELOHIM is always victorious over the false fruits of the enemy. Praise the blessed name of our ADONAI! ADONAI! YESHUA HA'MASHIACH! Amen and Amen!
"Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform (complete) it until the day of Jesus Christ:" (Philippians 1:6)
GOD is working on me.
GOD is working on you.
GOD is working on each one of us.
It's only with HIS patience, guidance, and instruction with whatever blessings HE's given to each of us that we can carry our cross, enduring our trials and tribulations. No one's alone on this journey, we all need to thank and bless GOD for the blessings HE's allowed us.
Recently someone kindly said to me I'm a bit hard on myself. If I'm hard on myself there's very good reasons. I never want to turn back to my old nature nor become a lukewarm believer. I never want to let go of my LORD and SAVIOR. I'm a sinner and I never want to forget what Y'SHUA/JESUS went through taking my sins upon HIS cross for my sake allowing me an opportunity to repent and change my character hopefully reflecting HIS image and not my own. I never want to take this very thought lightly nor for granted ever again, I did so for far too many years through ignorance and self-seeking desires and interests.
Y'SHUA/JESUS taught us, "If you love ME, keep MY commandments." (John 14:15). If you don't know what JESUS has taught us or are unsure of HIS commandments, read the Book of Matthew. Everything HE taught us is clearly explained in that gospel. Sounds easy enough when you think about it, and it should be, but it isn't all that easy to change years of character flaws. I never want to fall away from HIM, let HIM go, nor become a stumbling block for others or have others become a stumbling block for me.
If we love HIM we will willingly obey HIM, submit to HIM totally, pray for others (friend and foe) and for ourselves diligently, deny 'self' & die to our selfish lusts, wants, and desires continually.
Our FATHER wants us to follow HIM, to do this we should be following all of HIS commandments, along with walking in love with one another, resting in the Sabbath because HE and the Sabbath are ONE just as our FATHER, HE, and the HOLY SPIRIT are ONE. We should only be concerned with GOD's approval of our behaviors as GOD is not partial to any one person. HE loves us all equally, Jew & Gentile. GOD's in control, not us, so let's rest in HIM for we certainly can't make things right without HIS help. We need to ask-seek-knock on HIS door (Matthew 6:33) and invite HIM into our hearts so HE can help chasten, correct, and heal us growing in a deeper relationship with HIM. HE loves us all so very much.
Please don't be one of them who didn't heed HIS words. "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it." (Matthew 7:21-27)
Won't you forgive other's before it's your time to meet YAHWEH (the LORD)? We're not promised another moment from now. Death can come as a thief pulling the rug out from under you and you'll never have that last opportunity to repent to ABBA ELOHIM/GOD and turn away from your sins. Time's passing and the door is quickly closing, what are you waiting for? Put away the anger, put away the hurt, put away the pride. Forgive others and love all people as you wish to be loved. It's just not worth anyone losing their soul over petty situations and circumstances.
May Y'SHUA/JESUS continue to guide, direct, and bless you along HIS narrowing path. Keep steadfast, focused, and strong in the faith trusting all HE's taught us through HIS Words, deeds, and actions. Encourage one another in songs, hymns, and the Psalms not in idle conversations which don't amont to much in the end. Ask-Seek-Knock after your reward, which is the MESSIAH Y'SHUA/JESUS CHRIST, HE's our treasure! To ABBA YAHWEH ELOHIM/GOD be all the glory! In Y'SHUA/JESUS' name I pray. Amen.
yours through CHRIST,
