Yeshua, all Your commandments are a joy to me.

They are more pure than honey and refined gold.

Adonai, Your words and commandments are holy, righteous and true.

With a willing and contrite heart, I seek to walk in all of Your true and
righteous ways.

Oh, Lord, I will hide Your commandments in my heart.

Adonai, You say that Your ways and thoughts are so much higher and
greater than my thoughts.

You affirm, Yahweh, that Your word will not return to You empty, but
will accomplish all that You desire to be accomplished.

Oh, Lord, I yearn to seek Your Holy Face, for
You are the God of my salvation.

My prayer everyday, is to always be in the presence of the God
of all creation.

Yeshua, all Your commandments are a joy to me.

“What God Ultimately Requires: Faith” – Ekev – Because – 6 August, 2017

“What God Ultimately Requires: Faith”

Jesus scriptures temple2

Ekev falls on the heels of the last exhortation seen in last week’s Torah portion, V’et’chanan(Deuteronomy 3:23-7:11), where Moses commands the people of Israel to faithfully observe the instructions, statutes, and judgments that he has delivered to them from God (Deuteronomy 6:25-7:11). Deuteronomy 7:12 begins with the statement, “Then it shall come about…,” ekev tishme’un, employing the word ekev, which is a conjunction meaning “to the end,” or “result, reward” (CHALOT). Sometimes it can be rendered as “if” (NJPS) or “because” (ESV). Its usage indicates the results of obedience to the list of instructions given.

The opening verses of our parashah this week describe many of the blessings that are to come from listening to and performing the commandments of God:

“Then it shall come about, because you listen to these judgments and keep and do them, that the LORD your God will keep with you His covenant and His lovingkindness which He swore to your forefathers. He will love you and bless you and multiply you; He will also bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground, your grain and your new wine and your oil, the increase of your herd and the young of your flock, in the land which He swore to your forefathers to give you. You shall be blessed above all peoples; there will be no male or female barren among you or among your cattle. The LORD will remove from you all sickness; and He will not put on you any of the harmful diseases of Egypt which you have known, but He will lay them on all who hate you. You shall consume all the peoples whom the LORD your God will deliver to you; your eye shall not pity them, nor shall you serve their gods, for that would be a snare to you. If you should say in your heart, ‘These nations are greater than I; how can I dispossess them?’ you shall not be afraid of them; you shall well remember what the LORD your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt: the great trials which your eyes saw and the signs and the wonders and the mighty hand and the outstretched arm by which the LORD your God brought you out. So shall the LORD your God do to all the peoples of whom you are afraid. Moreover, the LORD your God will send the hornet against them, until those who are left and hide themselves from you perish. You shall not dread them, for the LORD your God is in your midst, a great and awesome God. The LORD your God will clear away these nations before you little by little; you will not be able to put an end to them quickly, for the wild beasts would grow too numerous for you. But the LORD your God will deliver them before you, and will throw them into great confusion until they are destroyed. He will deliver their kings into your hand so that you will make their name perish from under heaven; no man will be able to stand before you until you have destroyed them” (Deuteronomy 7:12-24).

As you read this opening section from Ekev, you should marvel about what a great and awesome God Ancient Israel truly had, as its Provider, Protector, and Champion against all other gods and principalities. But while rejoicing in all of the wonderful things that the Holy One promises to do for His people, there is one nagging caveat or requirement that should really gain the attention of someone who has read these words. It appears from a straightforward reading of these verses that the God of Israel requires His people to keep His commandments in order for His blessings to be manifested toward them. Does this require obedience to the Torah, so that God’s people might receive His blessings? Let us read it again to see if this is what it says, and consider the implications for our lives today:

If you pay attention to these laws and are careful to follow them, then the LORD your God will keep his covenant of love with you, as he swore to your forefathers”(Deuteronomy 7:12, NIV). (Click to Site)

Will Yahweh/God Bless the United States by the Blogging Hounds

gods_judgement

I woke up early this morning asking myself and Yahweh/God a question. The present state of this country troubles me and I know that Yahweh is not happy with us. If you were Elohim/God would you bless the United States, when we the people are turning our backs on Yahweh/Yeshua and trashing him with these sins?

Some of the ways that the United States has turned her back on God are described below.

Ceration-vs-Evolution

1 – We have taken the God of the Bible completely out of our schools.

2 – We have 0utlawed prayer in schools and replaced Yahweh with secular  humanism and evolution.

3 – We have been fed a lie that we were accidentally created in the image of an ape, and not in the image of God.   Genesis 1:26-27

4 –  It is considered perfectly alright to acknowledge Allah, Buddha, Satan, witchcraft, paganism, atheism in schools, but not the God of the Bible.  Exodus 20:3-6

5 – It’s normal and totally legal to take the lives of unborn children under the law of this land;  however it’s murder, in the eyes of the God of the Bible.  Exodus 20:13

6 – Drug & alcohol addiction, pharmakeia, sorcery and witchcraft have replaced the God of all Creation in idolatry at it’s highest form.     Revelation 9:21 and 18:23

pharmakeia

7 – Homosexuality and same sex marriage are unnatural and abhorrent in the Eyes of Yahweh.  He has never changed His mind on this unholy union as He is a God who “changes not”.   Leviticus 18,  Romans 1:18-32, Malachi 3:6, Hebrews 13:8

8 – The apostate church denies the basis truths of the Bible as listed below…

harlotbeast

a) Salvation alone through Yeshua the Messiah who is the only way to Yahweh, the Father, is no longer a doctrinal belief.  John 14:6, Acts 4:12

b) They are denying that the reality of eternal punishment for sin is a very literal hell.  Matthew 25:41, Revelation 20: 11-15

c) They tolerate the breaking of the Commandments of God.

9 – The United States has turned it’s back on the nation of Israel by forcing her to give up land for peace to a hostile enemy who has always tried to destroy her.  This is land that was given as a promise from God in a covenant to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  Genesis 13: 14-17, Genesis 26:3-5, Genesis 35:9-12 

abraham

From all these sins that have been listed above, and many more not mentioned in this article, we beg to ask this question:  Is there any way that we can stop this downward spiral toward Yahweh’s judgement on the US because of all these sins that we have committed against Him?

 When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place.   2 Chronicles 7: 13-15

 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”   

John 3:16-21

repentance-is-u-turning

Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things. But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things. And do you think this, O man, you who judge those practicing such things, and doing the same, that you will escape the judgment of God? Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance? But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, who “will render to each one according to his deeds”eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality; but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek; but glory, honor, and peace to everyone who works what is good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For there is no partiality with God.  

Romans 2:1-11

Final thought for Today: Your decision concerning your spiritual condition  with Yahweh/God/Jesus/Yeshua,  will determine where you will live in Eternity

 “Now therefore, fear the Lord, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the LordAnd if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

So the people answered and said: “Far be it from us that we should forsake the Lord to serve other gods; for the Lord our God is He who brought us and our fathers up out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, who did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way that we went and among all the people through whom we passed. And the Lord drove out from before us all the people, including the Amorites who dwelt in the land.

We also will serve the Lord, for He is our God.”But Joshua said to the people, “You cannot serve the Lord, for He is a holy God. He is a jealous God; He will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins. If you forsake the Lord and serve foreign gods, then He will turn and do you harm and consume you, after He has done you good.”And the people said to Joshua, “No, but we will serve the Lord!”So Joshua said to the people, “You are witnesses against yourselves that you have chosen the Lord for yourselves, to serve Him.” And they said, “We are witnesses!” 

“Now therefore,” he said, “put away the foreign gods which are among you, and incline your heart to the Lord God of Israel.” And the people said to Joshua, “The Lord our God we will serve, and His voice we will obey!”   Joshua 24:14-24
