The ‘New Science’ of Destruction

“The thief does not come except that he may steal, and kill, and destroy. I came that they may have life and may have it abundantly.” – the words of Yahshua from John 10:10, HRB 

what are you learning about the world?

The world is flooded with all kinds of ‘new ideas’ – some of these ideas on how to defeat disease. For years, medication known as antibiotics have saved untold numbers of people, but with a price. Sanitizing nature has had a cost over time. Drug-resistant bacteria that are often called Superbugs, have been created from antibiotic overuse and abuse. Antibiotics destroy cell walls of these offending bacteria, and now we find that fungus and mollicutes are taking the place of bacteria in causing illness because they do not have cell walls. Even though many scientists and doctors laugh off the benefits of vitamins, a few scientists have devised a new answer for what ails mankind: the antivitamin . (John 3:16-17; Ephesians 6:12-13; 1 Peter 5:8)

The concept of the antivitamin is that an antivitamin interferes with the vitamin supply of bacteria, as an alternative means to exterminate it. Vitamins are said to be vital to all living things for building cellular structure and materials, including the operation of cellular processes. After the horrendous debacle of the coronavirus and mankind’s overreaction, through scientists, August 2020 has brought the world anti-vitamin theory.

hypothesis of new science“Their theory is that anti-vitamins are similar enough to their vitamin equivalents that they fool biological systems into thinking they’re the same molecules, but slightly different in a way that makes them catastrophically faulty substitutes, thereby inhibiting the function of vitamins and becoming toxic to those bacteria that ingested them. Specifically, ‘it knocks off the protein glutamate from the rest of its molecule, which leads to glutamates sticking to each other and prevents them from participating in reactions.’” – Science Alert

These scientists theorize that their modifications “mess up the critical functions of their corresponding vitamins in bacteria while leaving human systems intact.”

What is being ignored is the concept that the human body (and for that matter, animal bodies) is composed of 10 times more bacteria than human cells. They’ve missed the idea that killing off bacteria will eventually kill the human body itself. What’s worse, they’ve missed out on learning anything from their failed experiment with antibiotics. These researching scientists are convinced that antivitamins can mimic real vitamins by fooling the body into short-circuiting nutrition to only certain bacteria within the body.

Publishing an idea in a scientific journal or online does not make a hypotheses “science” until it can be proved to be more than a man’s imagination. A hypothesis is not truly knowledge, nor can it be set apart from ignorance. After all, science is systematic knowledge wholly based on observation through study. There remain more questions than answers at this point. But mankind will willingly rush in where “angels fear to tred.” At the same time, government uses science in the attempt to construct truth, which more often is simply cultural propaganda. People are not corporations, but are beings divinely constructed by their creator. (Romans 1:25; Colossians 1:16; Ecclesiastes 12:1; Malachi 2:10; Proverbs 16:12)

This new hypothesis of “new science” ignores the function of glutamate in the human body, as a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. Glutamine prevents infections that can result from endurance exercise and over-training, improving nutrition during major illness, improve the reaction to allergies and treat digestive issues through the intestines. It manages inflammation and stimulates alertness, erratic behavior, and improves memory.

searching for truth

The standard of scientific theory lies in evidence, since proof is not truly possible, which indicates the large black hole that so many of this world claim to put their trust and allegiance. It is the religion of the world. The outcomes of this new theory of science remains to be seen. You can count on the processes of nature, put in place by our creator, to respond to man’s latest scientific endeavor.

The Coronavirus Plague, Religion & Your Rights

Scripture tells that disciples should expect difficulty from authorities and those of the world. In the news is a well publicized standoff between a ‘pastor’ and his ‘church’ and multiple levels of government. For the last two Sundays, this congregation has defied California’s coronavirus regulations by not only holding services, but allowing unmasked congregants to sing in close proximity to each other. The people believe that they can come and go as they please, taking any perceived risk on themselves, or in this case, placing the results fully on the Heavenly Father. (2 Peter 2:13-14; Titus 3:1; 1 Timothy 2:1-2; Psalm 22:28; Matthew 22:21; Daniel 2:21; “Ebola & Predicted Pestilence“; “Are Vaccines Good for Your Family?“; “Brave New World: The Dilemmas of Vaccines & Modern Medicine“)

“We will obey God rather than men,” John MacArthur is quoted as saying (Acts 5:29). This is, in fact, quite Biblical on its face. According to a statement, church leaders believe that the government is charged with protecting civic order and well-being. But the government can’t dictate “the doctrine, practice, or polity of the church.” (Matthew 22:37; Proverbs 29:2)

“As His people, we are subject to His will and commands as revealed in Scripture,” the statement reads. “Therefore we cannot and will not acquiesce to a government-imposed moratorium on our weekly congregational worship or other regular corporate gatherings. Compliance would be disobedience to our Lord’s clear commands.” (“The Myth of Christian Governance“; “Gods in Their Own Minds“; “Frenzy, Fear & Power“)

“We have rights from the Constitution, not the Bible,” said Eric J. Segall, a law professor at Georgia State. “Biblical duties don’t trump our laws. Period. Full stop.”

“To prevent people from acting in a way that threatens the lives and health of other people, that is the basis of the government’s authority.”

What deems these rules constitutional is that their purpose “is to protect people’s life and health, to protect people from death and illness,” says USC law professor, Nomi Stozenberg. (“Brainwashed“; “Fighting a World of Fear & Delusion“)

Unhappily, the real issue resides in how religious corporations and the State have become intertwined in supporting relationships. A legal corporation of any type is beholden to the State to perform a certain function and to support the laws of the government in fulfilling their function. A corporation exists because the State allows it to exist through paperwork filed with the State. As such, the corporate entity is subject to the will of the State. This reality is clearly shown during elections, when at times, the government has warned ‘church leaders’ about holding their tongues in support of any candidate, lest they lose their ‘license to preach’ by having their corporation revoked. If a ‘body of Christ’ or congregation of Christian disciples are registered as a corporation, they are effectively part of the world, and are governed wholly by it, as a construction of the government. This is a major error that many congregations, even whole faiths, have made in setting up their legal affairs. They have taken the most beneficial and easy way possible to stay in legal standing with the government, at the sacrifice of complete freedom to practice their faith as they please, or even as Scripture might dictate. Effectively, they have made themselves slaves to the State – in good times and in times of trouble. They have a contract with the State. For years, this worked to their advantage, but this legal setup is not the best for a disciple or his body to be invested in. (“Bible Prophecy and the Rise of the Corporation“; “The Corporation That Owns Everything“)

narcissism through lawFurther, because of ‘legal precedence,’ the Supreme Court has ruled that virtually all rights can be suspended in the interest of public health. This is currently the framework that the US government is standing on. The rights of all are subject to their will because of the contagion. As long as the contagion is seen to exist, or declared to exist, the government believes they have free reign to do what is in the common interest or public interest – yes, even in the interest of the government and its leaders. Some see this as an unconstitutional abuse of power, yet the United States has left its Constitution in the dust some time ago, violating it continually and regularly. The government and its adherents still give the Constitution lip service when convenient. Delude yourself no longer. The evidence is clear to see. (Job 12:23-25; Deuteronomy 16:19-20; 2 Timothy 3:1-5; Ephesians 6:12; “Incentives of Deception“)

god of commerceIn July, the Supreme Court turned down an appeal from a ‘Christian church,’ which requested it be subjected to the same COVID-19 restrictions that allow casinos, restaurants and other businesses to operate in Nevada at 50% capacity with proper social distancing. Christianity doesn’t have the same importance as commerce, through which the government benefits greatly from. Modern ‘churches’ or congregations in the United States are now in an unseemly position. They are no longer essential to the function or needs of government in the ‘Land of the Free.” (“Leadership & the Universal Authority of Messiah“)

Based on what I have revealed here, the State is revoking the right to gather and the Bible has no legal standing whatever. This shows the dangerous position that a Christian congregation can easily be placed, just as individual rights can be revoked during times of plague and trouble.

assembling outdoorsYet, by showing some consideration of the current plague that has attached itself to mankind, any ‘body of Christ,’ or any other faith, can peaceably assemble outdoors, using the demanded criterion of the State. This is inconvenient, but makes assembly possible in real life, instead of on the internet. However, all of us in the United States are still on a slippery slope where our ‘rights’ are concerned, as they are subject to change at anytime per the will of the State. Disciples must prepare to live under persecution, even in a place where freedom is said to reign! (“Delusion & the Tightening Noose of the Beast System“; “The Antichrist & the War on Reality“)

Remember this please! Your relationship to your Heavenly Father through Yahshua the Messiah, must to be more than a nameplate that gives you access and acceptability in the world that we live in. Being a Christian, a true disciple or student, should prompt us to constantly evolve and evaluate who we are. This process challenges each of us, and prompts each of us to correction as we walk out, live in the truth of His Word. This is the discipline required. It’s what the correctly understood and lived Bible says and does. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; James 4:4; Romans 8:7; Psalm 9:17; “The Unapologetic Christian“)

Lack of Love, Gaslighting & Mental Abuse in the Coronavirus Age

But know this, that in the last days disastrous times will be upon us. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, braggarts, arrogant, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, wicked, without natural feeling, addicted to lust, slanderers, without self-control, savage, haters of good, traitors, hasty, boasters, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Elohim, having a form of righteousness, but denying the power of it; even turn away from these.” – 2 Timothy 3:1-4, HRB

love deficientWe live in a love-deficient world. The evidence is clear. We are increasingly isolated and lonely, and more susceptible to gaslighting by the government and media. Gaslighting is nothing new, originating in the account of the garden when Satan prompts Eve to questions what she heard YHWH say about the tree of knowledge, insisting that her understanding is wrong. Satan placed doubt in the heart of Eve, and she accepted it. (Genesis 3:1-3) This is not the way that humans were designed to think. (“Real Love Resides in Righteousness“; “The Regeneration of Love“; “Love: Departing from Death to Life“; “Authority: The Real Meaning of Romans 13“)

For Elohim hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” – 2 Timothy 1:7, WoY

manipulationIn this day, gaslighting is recognized as a form of mental abuse, in which a victim is manipulated into doubting their own confidence, in their memory, perception, and sanity. This kind of abuse is no longer in the shadows, but is mainstream. Gaslighting is everywhere, largely because narcissism and manipulation are rampant, having become the norm in society-at-large! The roots of this narcissism are always grounded in great fear, a means of wresting control in order to feel or be more secure. Pathological narcissists use their insanely selfish behavior and actions to manipulate and brainwash others at every opportunity. They are experts at manipulation, and the reality is that government, corporations and other organizations are people too, that is to say, made of them! They are experts at manipulation through the news cycle, chaos, patriotism, nationalism, the charm offensive, and other ‘secret’ knowledge. (Isaiah 35:4, 41:10; Joshua 1:9; John 14:27; Romans 8:38-39; “Shining Love Toward Others in Righteousness“; “Politics & the Path to Enlightenment“; “Religion, Politics, Power & Financial Corruption“)

The system is securely in place. You may find that important information is intentionally altered, even replaced with false information. This tactic is designed to systematically dismantle the prey’s ability to trust their own judgment, to undermine their confidence so that they begin to doubt their own memories and judgments. The purpose is to render the prey highly suggestible to the narcissist’s opinion and influence. (“Political Hysteria & Men of Substance“; “Supporting the Way or the World“; “Dealing with Separation From Personal Well-Being“)

narcissist or notYou must confirm in your mind whether you are dealing with a narcissist or not, especially before you make any personal opinions known that conflict with their version of truth. They will make you wish you never expressed any view that doesn’t line up with theirs. The ‘gaslighter’ knows the proper way to achieve a goal, and will tell you what ‘he’ wants you to hear. A small disagreement can invoke an attack on you, as the ‘gaslighter’ twists the conversation to make you the evil one, and assumes the role of innocence. (Philippians 2:3-4; Romans 12:3, 10; “The Art of Self-Deception“; “Frenzy, Fear & Power“)

induced conversationNarcissists use “induced conversation” in the effort to drive you to respond, and once you do, they know they have you. A courtroom may be used to induce you. Police action may be used to induce you. Manipulation is their trade and goods. This kind of behavior operates from the least respectable to the top levels of world rule. While the government-media-people relationship is mostly a one way workshop, in the era of social media, you can actually respond, closing the circuit of real relationship in your mind. It’s a good form of influence and control. These days, narcissist entities are so prevalent that your next communication is easily on the way. They seek to know your mind and control your data, your life. In this way, they sabotage any efforts you might make to break away from them. Their calculated maneuvers and your love-deficit disorder can keep you trapped, powerless and in need of them. They keep you talking. The circle of control and influence is completed. They claim to care about you. They profess the desire to protect you from yourself. (“Responsibility & Accountability“; “Fighting a World of Fear & Delusion“; “Christians, Tyranny & the Man of Lawlessness“)

Where have you heard that lately? Think about it.

narcissism through lawFrom the least respected to the most respected, narcissists often use a coalition of corporate entities and other persons to overcome and overwhelm you, to use whatever authority they can muster to take down your boundaries. They will evoke your personal reaction, to engage in the counter-fight, to get you involved in nebulous counter-action for or against them.

They seek the trigger in you, to enjoin you in a wrestling match with them or others, or to seek your strict agreement. You must come to understand how you are being used and manipulated. Do you see something very much like this happening in your nation right now, or perhaps, in a nation that you know of?

family strife stressAs a disciple, the goal is to remove yourself from any situation of strife or unrighteous compromise, even though the narcissist-in-charge wants you to believe that, if you do remove yourself from the battlle or seek peace on your terms, then you have lost the war (which could be very important to you). It’s an old story that continually repeats itself. How do you fight such evil? Simply remind yourself that you know already almost exactly what the narcissist-in-charge will say or do. The narrative hasn’t changed, but has progressed or been enriched by technology over time. When narrative does change, it will be for the benefit of the narcissist, and his or her cronies, or friends. You are the intended prey.

trauma and fearIn life, through childhood and into being an adult, through trauma, abuse, and neglect, as well as through cultural and family dysfunction, many have become a prey in the war to control minds and hearts. Others learn in life to instinctively to prey on others. This has been the plight of fallen men and women, continued up to this time – and magnified by this age of technology. The wounds that each of us carry in our souls can make each of us susceptible to the manipulations and deceptions of narcissists. Our cultures, the organizations and corporations that function around us serve to cement our fallen natures, because they exemplify those fallen natures, even as they contest them.

Put no faith in a companion; put no trust in a friend; guard the door of your mouth from her who lies in your bosom” – Micah 7:5, HRB

shame and isolationThe distorted love of the world is driving the symbiosis of the fallen nature, one against the other, in a take-down fight to the end. If you aren’t a narcissist, anything at issue is your fault on some level. The blame is all yours. A narcissist doesn’t make a mistake, because they would be admitting how broken they really are. A narcissist cannot access shame, but will gleefully judge you for theirs. In the personal world, they can’t accept personal blame because they have very low self-esteem. They project onto others. To fight that demon of inferiority, they find what is wrong with others to maintain their worthiness, to turn the tables in achieving their manipulation. They may overcompensate and gloat to demonstrate why they deserve your respect. Yet, there is no healing for narcissist or prey until a person recognizes that they have a problem, and are willing to begin to overcome it.

Healing from this in the United States, for example, is a problem because our culture celebrates narcissism: achievement, “the land of milk and honey”, “the American Dream”, to compete and win over others, to bask in hero-worship, to ooze charisma. A narcissist seeks your essence, not unlike the mythical vampire, one that cannot accept a boundary. Narcissists are often entitled and grandiose because they must make others believe they are so beautiful and talented. Like a cancer, this attitude grows like a disease over time, unless willful intervention is taken. (“Foundation of a Global System of Greed“)

bow to narcissismAm I a narcissist? If you ask whether you are a narcissist, you likely are not, since you are internalizing instead blaming or putting things over on others. You may well be brainwashed to believe that you are a narcissist. It’s all about control – specifically controlling others. It’s a sick, mad way of doing business and living in the world. When you aren’t in control, you can’t be the narcissist-in-charge, or part of the chain of command, it could be reasoned. However, you should closely examine your life to see whether you are trying to control others to validate yourself and use others as a narcissist does. (“The Truth About Restoration“; “What You Should Be Optimistic About“)

To be a disciple or ‘taught one’ in the Way of Yahshua, each of us needs to focus on exactly that, avoiding becoming like the world of man. (Psalms 25:5; Matthew 6:24-33; Philippians 4:8; Hebrews 13:5-6; James 4:4; 2 Corinthians 4:4; “Following the Right Jesus“; “Disciples & the Occult of the World“; “Are You One of the Walking Dead?“; “Persisting Against Deception & Oppression During Tribulation“)

Doing nothing according to strife or self-glory, but in humility, let each regard his neighbor as better than himself; let no one be mindful only of his own things, but let each one also be mindful of the things of his neighbor.” – Philippians 2:3-4, HRB

Enter in through the narrow gate. Because wide is the gate and spacious the road, put to death through destruction, and many, by their reason, agree to enter. For narrow is the gate and troublesome is the road, the one that leads to life, and few agree to obtain it.“ – Matthew 7:13-14, P4T

Watch that there not be one misleading you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the elements of the world, and not according to Messiah.” – Colossians 2:8, HRB

Do not love the decoration of the world, nor that which is in the world. When any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. Because all that is in the world, the desire of the flesh, and the desire of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passes away, and the desires of the world. But the one agreeing with Will of Elohim endures into the eternal.” – 1 John 2:15-17, P4T

I exhort you truly brothers, through the compassion of Elohim, provide your bodies a living sacrifice, set apart, in full agreement to Elohim, your reasonable service. So do not be conformed to the age, but to the contrary, transformed in the renewing of your mind. You must test what is beneficial, even fully agreeable and complete to the Will of Elohim.” – Romans 12:1-2, P4T

Social Justice, Identity Politics & Snake Oil

We live in unreasonable times. Discontent and hysteria reigns supreme. After a coronavirus lockdown, with the wholesale loss of jobs and the lack of fresh sports and entertainment, protests and riots have become the norm in cities across the United States. Seattle has even lost part of its city to a takeover, a proclaimed ‘autonomous zone.’ A desire for change is being expressed. It’s said that “Black Lives Matter” is all about social justice. The conduct and what is being said say otherwise. Everyone says that this social justice reform is focused on police action. Yet there is more going on behind the scenes. What is this stuff called social justice? Is it real or is it philosophical and political snake oil? (“Masks & the Real Me“; “Forsaking Bitterness“; “The Truth About Anger“; “Is Your Forgiveness Real?“)

Social justice is said to be an ever-changing concept of fair and just relations between the individual and society, measured by the distribution of wealth, opportunities for personal activity, and social privileges. Social justice is said to offer equal access to wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society. On the surface this sounds good, but this doctrine has its roots in the political philosophies of socialism and communism. This construct puts the government or State into the position of administering justice in the courts, as well as social justice, the kind that the ‘politically-liberal’ have been selling hard in the United States since the 1960’s. (“Persisting Against Deception & Oppression During Tribulation“)

Let’s go a little farther on the world’s concept on the idea of justice. It was originally based in the only true faith. The concept of justice has progressed into an independent set of beliefs based in philosophy. Any basis on scripture has become purely coincidental.

The modern concept of justice is said to come from a set of ethical ‘universal principles’ (based in part on Catholicism) which guide people in judging what is right and what is wrong, no matter what culture and society they live in. The other virtues of this ‘classical moral philosophy’ understood by men are courage, self-control or temperance, and prudence, the ability to govern and discipline oneself by the use of reason. The other virtues are courage, self-control or temperance and prudence, the ability to govern and discipline oneself by the use of reason. Faith, hope and love are often said to be the three religious virtues. These virtues or good habits are said to help individuals to fully develop their human potential, enabling them to serve their own self-interests while working in harmony with others for a common goal or the common good. It’s also said that the ultimate purpose of all the virtues is to elevate the dignity and sovereignty of the human person. (“Justice & Righteousness“; “Real Love Resides in Righteousness“; “Redefining Good“)

The throne of perversity casts a spell of fascination, fashioning misery as law.” – Psalm 94:20, P4T

In the United States over the generations, ‘good government’ has been sold as the fulfillment of justice through the rule of law. Politics has taken up economic status and incorporated that into this philosophy of justice. Social justice is said to envelop economic justice, guiding its adherents in creating organized human interactions through established institutions. These social institutions, when properly organized, are said to provide access to what is good for the person and in personal associations with others. The United Nations promotes social justice as indispensable for the achievement and maintenance of peace and security within and among nations. What is sold as a tool of peace and freedom is actually a tool of control, a tool for building institutions and nations. What you might never guess is that justice, even Biblical justice, has been hijacked by the world and its’ institutions for corporate means. This system has been designed for the gain of worldly authorities as a means of weaponized control over the individual. (“The Myth of Christian Governance“; “Delusion & the Tightening Noose of the Beast System“; “The Politics of Pride“)

Their identity politics* is a false narrative, a type of philosophical and political snake oil grounded in lack, fear, ingratitude, and a heaping helping of outraged hysteria, a yawning canyon of destruction that can never be filled – something akin to a hole in the heart. This hole in the heart can only be sated with love, a love that can never be accepted because of deep neurosis. This mental condition is not unlike a perpetually squeaky wheel that can never be oiled, that ultimately alienates everyone until that wheel seizes up and perishes without achieving a real purpose beyond destruction. (Ecclesiastes 3:10-11; Psalm 31:15-16; Acts 17:22-27; Luke 18:1-8; “Healing Your Life Resources“; “Leaders & the Antichrist Spirit of Wisdom“; “Brainwashed“)

Weaponized control has become the stock and trade of modern sovereignty and political movements. With the latest hysterical uprising of these special interests, you must go along to get along. You can’t have another opinion and you are being told to shut up when you do. There can be no discussion in the ‘court of public opinion.’ Their public exercise of self-absorbed hysteria is not unlike a discontented and toxic wife that is bent on destruction of her family for her own entitlement, and focused on the destruction of the future of her soon-to-be ex-husband (reverse roles if you can imagine this better). Like this toxic wife, leaders and voices of this latest bevy of uprisings must be right because they are entitled to be right. There will be little to no discussion of their narrative, their viewpoint. You will hear about it endlessly though. The demon will never be sated, the hole never filled. (“Grieving Without Being Destructive“; “Chasing Useless Pursuits“; “Mind Control of the Beast“; “Gods in Their Own Minds“)

Evil men do not understand the rule of righteousness. Ask of YHWH and understand all.” – Proverbs 28:5, P4T

Whether in Hebrew (tsedheq, tsedhaqah, mishpat) or Greek (dikaiosune), YHWH Elohim is righteous, righteousness – not justice that man can use and abuse. Man can only be righteous by following His Teaching, the example of Messiah, the teaching of accurately-divided Scripture. The original words are the same – righteousness. Why use another word? Some Scripture translations use the word justice. Elohim’s righteousness is justice according to these translations of scripture, or His righteousness fails to exist. There exists no other justice, rightness, or righteousness, except in the minds of fallen men. YHWH is the Righteous Judge. Fallen men and women may claim his teaching, his religion, but follow another god – even the yawning canyon of destructive want that rests perpetually in their hearts. Man’s social justice has become a cruel companion of misery and bitterness, fortifying their own destruction in time. (“Spiritual Disease that Eats at Your Salvation“; “The Great Apostasy of Unrighteousness“)

Not all that say to Me, ‘Master, Master,’ enter into the purpose of the Kingdom of Heaven. To the contrary, he that yields the purpose of My Father in Heaven. Many say to Me in that Day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and in Your Name cast out devils and in Your Name yielded many miracles? Then at that time I will agree with the authority of Heaven, them I never knew. You! Depart from Me ministers of wickedness.” – Matthew 7:15-23, P4T

And then, the lawless will be revealed – whom the Master will consume, whose spirit His mouth even put away by the appearance of His Presence. (*) The presence of the lawless has been [whose presence] according to the effective operation of Satan through all power and signs, even lying wonders (**) and from all deceit, unrighteousness with the perishing; because they did not receive the love of the truth or salvation. And in this way Elohim sends them the effective operation of error. They believe the lie so that all are judged that do not believe truth, but pleased through unrighteousness.” – 2 Thessalonians 2:8-12, P4T

Though you seize the testimony of men, the testimony of Elohim is greater in that this is the testimony of Elohim which made the Way around, testified by His own Son. The one that places trust towards the Son of Elohim possesses the testimony in oneself. Not trusting in Elohim makes one a liar, because of not believing the testimony that Elohim made the Way around, the witness of His Son.” – 1 John 5:9-10, P4T

For judgment repents to righteousness. All upright of heart pursue it.” – Psalm 94:15, P4T

The Way of Righteousness is superior to man’s ideas of justice. (“Overusing the Word G-O-D“)

His righteousness deals appropriately with those who do right and wrong. (Isaiah 40:13-15)

To exercise righteousness is a friend to the righteous, His righteousness against workers of unrighteousness.” – Proverbs 21:15

When we agree with righteousness as to our sins, He is trustworthy and right to forgive the sin, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.“ – 1 John 1:9, p4T

(Genesis 18:24-25; 2 Chronicles 7:14 , 19:7)

He loves the track of righteousness He has set out and hates unrighteousness.

(Isaiah 61:8; Psalm 23:1-6; Walking the Track of Righteousness)

Certainly the boundaries set by the lips of the priest is to keep a hedge of protection around knowledge, searching out the Torah with His mouth because he is the messenger of YHWH of armies” – Malachi 2:7, P4T

(Genesis 18:19; Psalm 106:3; Proverbs 21:15; Isaiah 1:17, 59 )

Righteousness comes with Elohim’s favor

Blessed are those who guard right-ruling, who do righteousness at all times!” – Psalm 106:3, ISR98

Do not fret because of evildoers, do not be envious of the workers of unrighteousness. For they soon wither like grass, and fade like green plants. Trust in YHWH, and do good; dwell in the earth, and feed on steadfastness. And delight yourself in YHWH, and let Him give you the desires of your heart.” – Psalm 37:1-4, ISR98

(Psalm 7:9; Prov 29:26)

Righteousness is who Elohim is

For YHWH is righteous and loves righteousness. The righteous will see His face.” – Psalm 11:7, P4T

Therefore, YHWH will favor you. Surely he who waits will be exalted and be loved, because YHWH is an Elohim of righteousness. Happy are all that wait.“ – Isaiah 30:18, P4T

YHWH’s Words are pure commandments, silver refined in the crucible of the land, clarified seven times.” – Psalm 12:6, P4T

(Matthew 5:44-45 , 6:31-33; Acts 10:34-35; Romans 2:6, 11 ; Ephesians 6:9; 1 Peter 1:17)

YHWH wants more righteousness on the earth

And let right-ruling roll on like water, and righteousness like a mighty stream.” – Amos 5:24, ISR98

Do not love the decoration of the world, nor that which is in the world. When any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. Because all that is in the world, the desire of the flesh, and the desire of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passes away, and the desires of the world. But the one agreeing with Will of Elohim endures into the eternal.” – 1 John 2:15-17, P4T

(Romans 3:5-6 , 9:14; 1 John 1:9; Revelation 16:5-7 , 19:11)

YHWH wants us to live in righteousness

He showed man what is best. What does YHWH require of you, but to exercise righteousness, to be a friend of His loving-kindness, to walk humbly with Elohim? “ – Micah 6:8, P4T

So have no fellowship with the fruitless works of darkness. Even more so, tell a fault. For it is shameful, indeed to boast of what is done by them in secret.” – Ephesians 5:11, P4T

But you are kin of election, kingly priests set apart as a people, as purchased possessions a people that declare the valor of the One that calls you out of darkness into His wonderful light.” – 1 Peter 2:9, P4T

Righteousness is demonstrated through love and compassion

In the same way our joined love is completed, in order that we possess outspokenness in the day of judgment, in that just as He is, so are we in this world. No fear is in complete love, that is complete love throws out fear in that fear holds torment and to be frightened is not to be completed in love. We love Him in that He loved us in the beginning. When someone has claimed to love Elohim and hates his brother, this one is a liar because anyone not loving a brother that is physically seen, how much is one able to love Elohim that is not physically seen? But this command we possess from Him, that the one loving Elohim must also love his brother.” – 1 John 4:17-21, P4T

I exhort you truly brothers, through the compassion of Elohim, provide your bodies a living sacrifice, set apart, in full agreement to Elohim, your reasonable service. So do not be conformed to the age, but to the contrary, transformed in the renewing of your mind. You must test what is beneficial, even fully agreeable and complete to the Will of Elohim.” – Romans 12:1-2, P4T

YHWH wants us to seek and demonstrate righteousness, even for the vulnerable

Learn favor, seek judgment. Pursue the ruling of righteousness, make straight the oppressor. Contend for the orphan, strive for the widow.” – Isaiah 1:17. P4T

(Deuteronomy 27:19; Zechariah 7:9)

YHWH wants us to stand up for righteousness regardless of what others do

“Seeing that you understood Him and were taught in Him according to truth that is in Yahshua, you cast off the manner of the previous behavior of the old man, the corruption according to the desires of delusion. Also, you renewed the spirit of your understanding and clothed yourself with the regenerated man according to Elohim, fashioned in righteousness and truly set apart.” – Ephesians 4:21-24, P4T

Listen attentively, certainly regarding the arrangement of higher matters regarding rulers and men. The utterance of my lips is what is upright. Certainly my mouth speaks truth in righteousness. Wickedness is a disgusting thing to my lips.” – Proverbs 8:6-7, P4T

(Deuteronomy 16:18-20 ; Exodus 23:2; Leviticus 19:35-36; 1 Samuel 8:3; Proverbs 17:23 , 19:28; Isaiah 5:23; Hosea 12:7; Jeremiah 5:28; Ezekiel 22:29; Amos 2:6-7; Zechariah 7:9-10)

Upholding His righteousness is an essential part of being a good steward with what He has given us

Follow righteousness, righteousness alone, so that you live and inherit the land which YHWH your Elohim is giving you.” – Deuteronomy 16:20, ISR98

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what fellowship does righteousness have with unrighteousness? Now what partnership has light with darkness? ” – 2 Corinthians 6:14. P4T

Elohim commands His people to uphold righteousness

Enter in through the narrow gate. Because wide is the gate and spacious the road, put to death through destruction, and many, by their reason, agree to enter. For narrow is the gate and troublesome is the road, the one that leads to life, and few agree to obtain it.“ – Matthew 7:13-14, P4T

This relationship of trust is being established and continued through living water of the Ruach and shed blood of Yahshua Messiah. The Ruach is carried in each disciple through divine revelation. That the Ruach is truth, because They are Three that testify: the Ruach, and living water, and the shed blood. The Three are One and the same.” – 1 John 5:6-8, P4T

(Deuteronomy 24:17; Leviticus 19:15 ; Isaiah 56:1)

Yahshua hears our cries for righteousness and promises to bring righteousness

And shall Elohim not do right by all means to His own chosen ones who are crying out day and night to Him, and being patient over them? I say to you that He shall do right to them speedily. But when the Son of Aḏam comes, shall He find the belief on the earth?” – Luke 18:7-8, ISR98

I do not pray that they are taken up from out of the world, but that they are protected from the wicked. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Set them apart through Your truth. Your Word is truth. As You set Me apart against the world, I set them apart against the world. And on their behalf I set Myself apart, so that they could also be set apart, given wholly to truth.” – John 17:15-19, P4T

Everyone trusting that Yahshua is the Messiah is regenerated by Elohim. So everyone loving is regenerated through Him, regenerated through love, and in this know that the children of Elohim love whenever we love Elohim and guard His commands. Then this is the love of Elohim, that we guard His commands, then His commands are not burdensome, because everyone regenerated by Elohim conquers the world. Even this is the victory conquering the world: our belief through trust. Who is conquering the world except through believing that Yahshua is the Son of Elohim?“ – 1 John 5:1-5, P4T

Then this is the witness, that Elohim offered to us everlasting life, and the same life is in His own Son. Anyone possessing the Son possesses life. Anyone not possessing the Son of Elohim does not possess life. I have written this to you believers on the Authority of the Son of Elohim with the purpose that you know you possess everlasting life, and that you believe on the Authority of the Son of Elohim. Then this is the outspokenness we possess in Him, because when asked anything according to His own purpose, He hears us.” – 1 John 5:11-14, P4T

(2 Colossians 7:11; Philippians 4:8; 1 Thessalonians 4:6)

Let’s face the truth. YHWH’s people seek to establish the Way of righteousness in personal life and in relationship with others. Nations of the world may pretend to do so at times, but they do not represent the righteousness of ‘God.’ The nations have fashioned their own ‘god of fortresses’ and applied it to themselves, which is idolatry against YHWH Elohim and the teaching of Yahshua [Jesus]. Other organizations may have done or are actively involved in the same kind of idolatry, as they worship the power of money, drunk with authority that influence brings them. (Matthew 13:4325:13-31Daniel 11:38-39; “Your Master & Your Obedience”; “YHWH’s Track of Righteousness”; “YHWH: The Choice to Stay Loyal”; “Filling Your Life with Truth Instead of Deception“)

Yahshua will establish His righteousness on earth

See, My Servant whom I uphold, My Chosen One My being has delighted in! I have put My Spirit upon Him; He brings forth right-ruling to the nations. He does not cry out, nor lifts up His voice, nor causes His voice to be heard in the street. A crushed reed He does not break, and smoking flax He does not quench. He brings forth right-ruling in accordance with truth. He does not become weak or crushed, until He has established right-ruling in the earth. And the coastlands wait for His Torah.” – Isaiah 42:1-4, ISR98

“’Then wait,’ says YHWH, ‘for the day that I stand up to the plunder and spoils of robbery. Certainly, My judgment is to gather the nations, assemble dominions, to pour out the overflow of My anger, all of the face of My fury. Certainly all the lands are to be consumed with flames of My passion. Certainly, in that case, I will turn back to the people to prove their lips. All those that proclaim the reputation of the Name of YHWH serve in one frame of strength.’” – Zephaniah 3:8-9, P4T

(Romans 1:32 , 3:26; Luke 18:14 ; Galatians 3:11-13)

following a set track of righteousnessLiving in His righteousness, expressing love to others, and walking in humility, is not an easy Way of Life, but it is the only Way of Life through Yahshua the Messiah. As each of us applies Elohim’s heart of righteousness, we will change for the better, bringing more of His Sovereignty to earth now and into the future, as His people wait for Him to take His final action over this earthly system of governance.

For the servant of the Master must not quarrel, but be kind towards all, teachable, patient, in humility teaching those that oppose you, whether or not Elohim gives them repentance, to acknowledge the truth. So that they may regain their senses, from out of the snare of the devil, made captive by him to do his will. These know now, that in the last days, difficult times will come. Because men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boaters, proud, disobedient to parents, thankless, unrighteous, unloving, without agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, haters of righteousness, betrayers, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Elohim; possessing a formula for rightness, but contradicting the power of it. Avoid these, because these agree to sneak into houses, captivating foolish women loaded with sins, lead away with various desires, always learning and never able to be set to the discernment of truth.” – 2 Timothy 2:24-3:7, P4T

Certainly, this is a tough message for some to consider because living the controversy is so real and present in this world now. All of this is so prevalent, you could easily decide to dismiss the boisterous confusion of the world as ‘normal’ – even accepting fully their ‘new normal.’ But remember, for the unrighteous, anything goes. Expect a perfect solution. Expect a cure. Expect a vaccine to bring your old life back. Expect global unity through peace. The world is full of substitute messages that seek your admiration. (Revelation 13:1-18) What judgments you make are usually based on who or what you are listening to, what you truly believe. Do your daily judgments repent or turn back to righteousness, or is that on your mind when you make choices in life? YHWH’s track of righteousness is firmly established. This righteousness is what He desires for you. Disciples of the Messiah are to set themselves apart from the confusion of the world, being set apart to YHWH through the vital message of their Savior and their Counselor, the Holy Spirit [Dedicated, Set Apart Spirit]. The wisdom of your Heavenly Father is essential to surviving into Elohim’s Sovereign Rule. (John 15:1917:15-18Romans 12:1-2James 1:51 Peter 2:1-25Colossians 3:10; “Being Set Apart Makes You Aware of Sin“; “Understanding Sin“; “Scriptures – Qodesh, Being Set Apart“)

* Identity politics is a political style and ideology that focuses on the issues relevant to various groups defined by a wide variety of shared personal characteristics, including, but not limited to, race, religion, sex, gender, ethnicity, ideology, nationality, sexual orientation, gender expression, culture, shared history, medical conditions, and other of the many ways in which people differ.

A New World. Are You Being Primed? COVID19, Food Shortages & the Solar Lockdown

“Then He said to them, ‘Nation will rise up against nation, and sovereign against sovereign. Also, great earthquakes will be in many places, and food shortages and plagues; also horrible things and great signs will be in the heavens.’” – Luke 21:10-11 – direct translation (see also Revelation 6:1-8)

coronavirus lockdown newsIn the recent past you’ve been admonished to “stay safe” in a lockdown. You are being told to prepare for the “new normal.” With the plague of the COVID-19 coronavirus threatening the inhabitants of the earth, food shortages are becoming a very real perceived threat. In addition to the plague affecting food production and the supply chain, the solar cycle has been affecting the growing of food for several years with less growing days and less favorable conditions. The pressure is causing the enhancement of regulations, allowing for food substitutions in food processing for the world, in order to extend the food supply and to reduce the threat of food shortages. Many are using this situation to feather their nests, to sell something at the expense of others, usually through fear. “We’ll get through this together,” is the mantra of this time. You may well find it difficult to determine where you are being manipulated when you are continually being conditioned or primed. (Proverbs 21:6, 29:12; Luke 21:25; John 8:44; 2 Timothy 3:1-5; 2 Corinthians 11:14)

“And do not fear before those that kill the body, but are not able to kill the spirit. Now to a greater degree, fear the power that is able to destroy both spirit and body in gehenna.” – Matthew 10:28, direct translation

solar activity change

While many have experienced a coronavirus lockdown, the earth is said to be experiencing a solar lockdown. Since the late 19th and into this century, the Earth has enjoyed a time of high solar activity which is believed to be rare or unique in the context of the last several thousand years, attributed to “global warming.” The higher solar activity and warmer temperatures allowed the planet to briefly emerge from the colder periods of successive solar minima and “Little Ice Age”- a time of cooling that lasted from the 1300s through the Victorian era. (Deuteronomy 4:19; 2 Peter 3:10)

The sun has recently started a period of low activity that is associated with collapsing temperatures and changing weather on the earth. The scientists say that this change is expected to last a decade to thirty years.

Times of depressed solar activity are directly associated with times of global cold in history. The most famous example is the ‘Little Ice Age.’ On the other hand, times of increased solar activity are associated with global warming. For example, during the 12th and 13th centuries, the Sun was active, and the European climate was quite mild.

Modern record-keeping of solar cycles began in 1755 with Solar Cycle 1. NASA’s forecast for solar cycle 25 reveals it will be the weakest of the last 200 years. A solar minimum is a period of time when the Sun becomes dormant, exhibiting its lowest solar activity. This is a normal phenomenon that usually occurs once every 11 years. However, the solar minimum that we are going to experience is called a “Grand Solar Minimum.” This is an extreme solar minimum where solar activity is much lower than regular solar minimums. Grand Solar Minimums occur about once every 350-400 years.

ice age farmerAccording to the models championed by Valentina Zharkova and others, there will be a “huge reduction” in solar activity for “33 years between 2020 and 2053.” This is expected to cause global temperatures to drastically decrease overall, meaning that temperatures are expected to plummet to levels not seen since the 17th century.

Lower solar emissions, less radiation generally mean alterations in global climate, which are already underway to some extent. This will change the growth patterns of vegetation, and you can imagine, the state of agriculture determines the availability of food, the ability to feed animals, as well as ourselves. Whether this will happen in this coming cycle or the sunspots cycle up again during a normal 8 to 11 year sun cycle is unknown. Are we really in a solar minimum now? In theory, we could be awaiting another sun cycle before the next solar minimum (cycle 26), perhaps a lower solar minimum than what is currently underway – not an easy thought. True to my conclusion, I discovered some experts claim that Solar Cycle 25 will likely be a mere stop-off on our descent into the next Grand Solar Minimum — a period of even further reduced temperatures and crop yields. At the end of 2019, there were researchers insisting there wouldn’t be a solar cycle 25 at all. If all four of the Sun’s magnetic fields go out of phase in 2020, a cooling planet is expected.solar cycle predictions

While some have used and are using this study as a means of inciting fear, even panic, about mass famine and human casualties, in reality, a rather extreme solar minimum will likely be manageable for life on earth. This does not mean people will not die, or that nations may not pass away. Solar minimums are a hotly contested topic, what often seems to be a barking contest to explore who gets the most attention, as in much of science. There is no proven method of predicting the effect of solar cycles nor their true effect on global temperatures. However, the recent coronavirus, politics, the emotions of people in general, along with the greed of mankind are likely to play into the availability of resources, whether food or otherwise. We do know that the best models of scientists are usually little more than trash, as evidenced in the COVID-19 coronavirus models of 2020. Are you a healthy skeptic, a thinker, or simply going along for the ride? (Isaiah 41:10; Philippians 4:6-7; 2 Timothy 1:7)

“Woe to the arrangement, the scandal of man’s governance because they make distress and snares appear; but woe to that same man by whom the snare comes.” – Matthew 18:7, direct translation

“Certainly, do not be anxious saying: ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ For all these things the nations seek. Indeed, your Heavenly Father knows that you need every one of these. Now, seek first the Sovereignty of Elohim, and His righteousness, so all these will be added to you.” – Matthew 6:31-33, Project4Truth

Enlarging a Horizon of Trust

breaking newsThank you for continuing to visit and support this website as work continues on a new Bible translation and on new facets of ministry.

BibleThe majority of our lives each of us can be blind to the splendor and ignorant of the love from our Father. Still, there are times that those that seek a deeper relationship with the Father take notice of what He has done for us. Jacob had a special moment of awe, where anxiety became the relief of true peace, and through that process, a deeper understanding through personal revelation. Before personal revelation came to Jacob, he could only see the things he feared. Jacob began to see himself in proper perspective in view of the generosity of his Elohim YHWH, as Jacob returned to his old home to seek the favor of his brother Esau. (Genesis 32-33; “Bringing Real Peace“; “The Plan for Your Life“)

Genesis 32:10 tells us of this moment:

“I am a small thing compared to all of the kindness of Your favor and compared to Your support that You have granted to Your servant. Certainly Your rod crossed over the Jordan with me. At this moment I have become two camps.”

shepherd sheepJacob had a revelation about his life. His life was filled with righteous things, the provision of Elohim. He could see past the fear that had consumed him. In order to have the opportunity to reunite in peace with his brother, Jacob placed himself wholly in the care of His Father, just as he humbled himself before Esau. Having crossed over the Jordan with part of his group, Jacob submitted his heart wholly to the greatness of the loving-kindness that YHWH had shown Him. He trusted that this would continue. Within this personal revelation, Jacob saw himself as small compared to the love of His Father. He was willing to diminish himself and cast away the worldly trappings of pride. He more fully realized the loving-kindness he enjoyed in his relationship with His Father. Now he was expanding this vision more fully in his life. He was enlarging his horizon of trust. (“The Art of Self-Deception“; “Real Love Resides in Righteousness“; “The Regeneration of Love“)

The Plan for Your Life

“For I declare my intentions that I purpose toward you,’ says YHWH, ‘intentions of well-being, not of evil, to bring forth what I long for in the end. Call out to me, walk and pray to me, as I listen to you. Seek to be in My presence and worship with all your heart.’“ – Jeremiah 29:11-13, P4T

narrow-path-track-righteousnessThere is a plan for your life. There is a plan for your life! I hear this sentiment and exclamation over and over when religious leaders and evangelists speak to crowds of Christians looking for knowledge and encouragement. Yet, how often do you find that this is truly explained? What is His Will for your life? What kind of plan does your Heavenly Father have for you? It isn’t necessarily what you think you are hearing. (Colossians 3:10; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Psalm 119:105; “Plans to Prosper You“)

daydreamWhen considering life, most people have learned to accept dreams and goals as the earmarks in life. Do you possess the dreams and goals that you are reaching for? Most of us would say “no”, or these ideas would no longer be goals or dreams. You would have them and they would be reality in this world. Everyone has disappointments and broken expectations, no matter how small – and how quickly each of us can blame this on someone else, including the devil. To cast blame is part of fallen mankind. (James 1:22-25) Attitude matters as well in all things, and can have everything to do with both your goals and your ability or willingness to reach them. The real concern needs to be who you or what you are in agreement with! (Romans 12:1-2; John 17:15-18; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18)

If that last statement isn’t a shocker, consider it again. Who are you in agreement with? You might reason that because you think it, or believe that you think what you are thinking, that this is “God’s Will”. Are you certain about that? Think again partner.

cultureLife is a bundle of influences, culture and outright propaganda that have nothing whatever to do with your Heavenly Father or His righteousness. In reality, the degree that you are touched by these things has everything to do with where you stand in His Will. That’s a stunning thought that multitudes of professed Christians would want to try to deny. Surprisingly, what has been turned into beautiful prose in the 23rd Psalm is just one place that actually makes the point about your Heavenly Father’s plans, His deepest aspirations for your life. This prose has become the bedrock of Bible tradition – and few have dared to consider the deeper meaning that resides there and in other related scripture. (“Attack of Advertising & Propaganda“; “The Antichrist & War on Reality“)

“YHWH tends His flock without lack, allowing them to recline in pastures of sprouted shoots, sustained by quiet waters.” – Psalm 23:1-2, P4T

sheepfold doorIn this passage, scripture compares YHWH with a shepherd, and His people as sheep. With a touch of pride, this can be hard to swallow. Pride cannot imagine mankind as being anything like sheep. However, this isn’t about human pride. This is about love and the acceptance of that love, submission to YHWH and Yahshua [Jesus] as High Priest. Our Father provides a pasture full of fresh nutritious shoots, full provision for what is needed for His flock when they accept His provision. This pasture isn’t simply green foliage, but the finest that can be provided, direct from Him. (John 10:11) The image provided is the height of peaceful settings: reclining in fresh sprouted pastures along refreshing and calm waters. He is the oasis, the refreshing waterspring of His people. (Philippians 4:6-7; “YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“; “Psalm 91: Lifestyle & Protection“; “Leadership & the Universal Authority of Messiah“)

“He converts my living being, guiding me in His track of righteousness because of His Authority.” – Psalm 23:3, P4T

baptism-of-trust-Holy-SpiritElohim [‘God’, YHWH] restores or converts us as persons, even as He guides each of us in His track of righteousness. However, Christians cannot assume they are restored simply because they call themselves Christian, assuming that they are magically led in thought. What is involved is the personal guidance of the Spirit [Set Apart Spirit, ‘Holy Spirit’] for those that are willing to accept that guidance. (Titus 3:5; Isaiah 26:3) This conversion or restoration over time is essential to following His guidance. Most translations of scripture show “paths of righteousness” in a very generic sense, as if many paths exist in righteousness of YHWH, as if the provision of Yahshua [Jesus] made later was less important than what people have in mind now. The Hebrew word used for “paths” [magalah] is not a multitude of paths, or a path of choice. There are not many paths of righteousness leading to Him. Magalah is a firmly established track, a rampart, entrenchment or circular trench in battle. This word comes from the root word “agal” which means round or encircling. Magal literally means the trench made from the wheels of carts that are pulled by oxen to tread grain, which made trenches or ruts. Ultimately, this is the Way of expressing our Father’s protective love through His established hedge of protection. (Psalm 37:5; Proverbs 3:1-35; “The Great Apostasy of Unrighteousness“)

worn tracks on a Roman road

worn tracks on a Roman road

This magalah is a course of life, determined not by you or I, but by Elohim. Our Heavenly Father has established or set His track of righteousness that is to be followed with the guidance of scripture and the Spirit. This track [life course] is a battlement in which we are partners with the Most High in a spiritual war. Through your commitment and partnership you receive His protection and favor into the Sovereignty of His Age. This is a dramatic departure from the typical perception of Christians through tradition and philosophies. YHWH has established a predetermined lifestyle or track that He has set out for His people as opposed to the lifestyle of mammon presented by the world. Living in the track of YHWH’s righteousness involves cooperation, obedience and partnership in spiritual warfare through relationship [including prayer], setting oneself apart from the world that encourages a lifestyle of mammon. (Deuteronomy 30:19-20; Isaiah 48:18; Matthew 6:7-8; Psalm 139:1-4; Colossians 1:16-17; Romans 6:23, 9:19-21; “A Disciple in Warfare“)

death-to-lifeYHWH’s track of righteousness is lifestyle, way of life, or how a disciple conducts himself or herself. Without question, the disciple is involved in spiritual warfare. Beyond that reality, YHWH’s track of righteousness demands a measure of answerability on the part of the disciple. Disciples must be willing to cooperate and live in agreement with their Heavenly Father. He has set in place an established track of righteousness for all His people to walk on. This is the predestination that so many clamor about, as if people don’t have free choice that YHWH declared they do. YHWH’s track of righteousness is a battlement at the front of spiritual warfare on earth. Ultimately, you have free will to make the lifestyle choice that you will, even if you stray from His pasture. Your Father will seek you even though He will let you do exactly what you please as you reap the fruit of that choice. Yes, originally he created mankind to be set apart to Him. (John 15:16; 1 John 4:19) Free will is a real gift that lets each of us choose to love Him because of what we desire. (Ephesians 2:10; Philippians 2:13; Romans 8:28; Ecclesiastes 9:10; Proverbs 21:5; “Freedom in Truth“; “A Yoke of Slavery or Freedom“; “What Lifestyle Are You Pursuing“; “Do You Live a Lifestyle of Greed?“)

Bible knowledgeHe guides His flock, first through his Word, for you to read, understand and love. All of this is done through His protective love because of His Authority, for the sake of His Name. When you respond to Him as one dedicated to Him, trusting Him, you are set apart to Him as you walk in His track of righteousness. (Proverbs 3:5-6; Psalm 40:4; James 1:5; “A Branch of the Vine Through Trust“; “Abiding in Trust“)

“Enter in through the narrow gate. Because wide is the gate and spacious the road, put to death through destruction, and many, by their reason, agree to enter. For narrow is the gate and troublesome is the road, the one that leads to life, and few agree to obtain it.“ – Matthew 7:13-14, P4T

“In this way, as I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I revere no evil.” – Psalm 23:4, P4T 

fear-gnashing-teethWhenever we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, we need have no fear because YHWH is with us. Whether danger is real, imminent, or imagined, YHWH is there. He is with you, whether you walk the earth or reside with Him. Through the chastening of His rod and support of His staff, He seeks to strengthen the members of His flock through the truth of His Word and your set apart relationship/partnership with Him. (“Building a Relationship With YHWH“; “The Regeneration of Love“; “A Work of Renewal & Completion“)

agreement with YHWHReality is that until each of us agrees with Elohim, each of us limits what can be accomplished as we live out our days. Each of us much learn to discern, to become fully aware of the lies that Satan and his agents teach. Then, you must stop believing those lies, and begin to take action in your life. By cleansing our minds and hearts, setting our trust and love on Elohim, we come to have the mind of our Messiah, thinking more and more as He thinks through the understanding of scripture and regeneration of the Spirit. As your thinking lines up with scripture and Spirit, you are walking His track of righteousness, living this daily. (1 Corinthians 2:16; Philippians 4:13) This reflects your love and your devoted service to Him. (Romans 12:1-2; Ephesians 5:11; Matthew 19:26; Luke 18:27; Psalm 91:1-16; “Understanding Sin“; “Guarding Yourself From the Idolatry of Unbelief“; “Faith: What You Believe is Important“; “Dealing With Separation From Personal Well-Being“)

His loving provision as you trust Him and walk in His righteous track [magalah] is exactly what your Heavenly Father has in mind. (“Living as Partners & Friends in Messiah Through Provision“)

3 John – Unrest During Persecution & Uncertainty

by John Greene

3rdJohnrevealedLike 2 John, 3 John bears the signs of a letter written during Christian persecution by the Romans. Like many Bible names in scripture, these names can be translated into other meanings. This is the case in 3 John. Once again, John is writing a kind of coded message to an assembly where he is overseeing ministry. Popular opinion maintains that John is writing to certain ones that we do not know. However, 3 John has the same character as 2 John, containing names which can be otherwise translated to make the letter more meaningful and much warmer in character. (“2 John – Love & Truth During Persecution“; “Real Love Resides in Righteousness“)

“The elder of the beloved Master that I love in truth; Beloved, I pray a hedge around everyone as you prosper and live in health, just as your breath of life prospers, because I was full of joy as the brothers set out and reported the truth in you, just as you walk the Way in truth.” – 3 John 1-3, P4T

bible-trust-YHWH-1John is writing to an assembly of disciples as an elder of the beloved Master Yahshua [Jesus]. His first concern was to tell them that they were in his prayers, as he continued to pray a hedge of protection around them. (Job 1:8; 1 Peter 5:8) The original text indicates that this ‘Hebraism’ is the most likely original expression of what John actually wrote. Breath of life refers to what most people know as the ‘soul’, but is more accurately expressed as spirit [nephesh: an animated, breathing, conscious and living being]. (John 20:22; “Disciples & the Occult of the World“; “Discernment 101: Learning to be Discerning“)

Genesis 2:7 contains three significant details about man’s creation. The first is that Elohim [‘God’, YHWH] created man and that man did not evolve from other creatures. Impersonal forces did not form man. All the cells, DNA, and other physical constructs did not create man. These are only the substances that make up man’s physical body. YHWH formed man and created man using these substances. He formed man much as a potter would [yatsar: to mold, shape or form]. YHWH had the concept of man and brought that concept to life on this earth. (“Faith: What You Believe is Important“; “Gods in Their Own Minds“)

Our Father breathed His own breath of life into man. Human beings are more than dust or physical substance. Each human has a ruach [spirit]. Our Heavenly Father is the Source of life, and He directly placed life within man. Mankind is unique among all living things upon the earth. Mankind has the life and power of Elohim [‘God’, YHWH], given to man to animate him [ruach: wind, breath, air, spirit].

John was full of joy from the report of the brothers that had been sent out to them because they were found to be walking the Way in truth. Then John began the core of his message to this troubled assembly.

“I possess no greater delight than this – to hear my children walk the Way around in truth. Beloved, agree to be trustworthy in whatever you labor for. The brothers and strangers who witnessed your love in the presence of the assembly, those who journey appropriately as blameless and righteous in the presence of Elohim; because in behalf of His Authority they went out, set apart from the multitude and taking nothing. Then we are in debt to receive anyone such as this hospitably, that we become fellow workers of the truth.” – 3 John 4-8

small Bible studyHere and in 2 John, we learn an important truth about the treatment of brothers, sisters and others in the first century – that welcoming and warm hospitality were seen as the same as being ‘fellow workers’. Because of this, it was very important to know who you were meeting, greeting and associating with. Most important was complete trust in the provision of Yahshua [Jesus] the Messiah, who made the Way around sin. The direct expression of this trust was and is shown in love for others, especially brothers and sisters in Christian unity under Messiah and Spirit. (“Real Trust in YHWH and Caring for Brothers and Sisters“; “Love: Departing from Death to Life“)

“My beloved children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. Then when anyone sins, each of us has an Intercessor at the side of the Father, Yahshua, the righteous Messiah. And He is the atoning offering that [G4012 peri] made the Way around our sin, but not the Way around ours alone, and also the Way around for the whole world. And in this we know that we know Him when we guard His commands. The one that claims to know Him and does not guard His commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that one. But whoever holds fast to His Word, in that one is truly the love of Elohim completed. In this way you know that you are in Him, speaking and continuing in Him, owing it to yourself also to walk the Way, just as He walked.” – 1 John 2:1-6, P4T

John gives instructions to the assembly about the problems that they are having with Authority, love, and hospitality among their brothers and sisters in the presence of Elohim. He calls certain ones out on idle accusations of evil, as well as driving elders and visiting brothers out of the assembly. (“Leaders & the Antichrist Spirit of Wisdom“; “Choosing to Serve YHWH, Not Man“)

“I write to the assembly, except those nourished by a false god, that desire to be first, that do not receive us hospitably. For this reason, when I come, call to mind these deeds that are produced against us by making idle accusations with evil words. And not satisfied with this, neither do these receive the brothers hospitably, and deliberately hinder and drive them out of the assembly. Beloved, do not imitate wickedness, but be agreeable with righteousness. Righteousness is of Elohim, but wickedness does not know Elohim.” – 3 John 9-11, P4T

greek-godCan you imagine an assembly of disciples where visiting brothers and strangers are driven out by egotistical and crazed members that insist on their own way, to the point of casting out unwanted and unknown visitors? John was not only dealing with persecution, but hyper-vigilant and accusing members that professed to be of the body of Messiah. They may have done so with the excuse of keeping out potential spies, those that could report to the Romans. Whatever the excuse these ones might profess, these men were evil operators in an assembly seeking to reflect truth and caring hospitality to teaching and visiting brothers and sisters. (“Video: Corruption of Christianity in the Third Century“; “Christianity Proclaimed a Threat to Society“)

“The ones in charge of spiritual food are witnesses of all, and by the truth itself. Moreover, even we bear witness and know that our testimony is true. I have much to write, but have purposed not to write to you with ink and pen. But I have expectation to see you soon, and speak face to face. Prosperity to you. The friends greet you. Greet the friends, each by name.” – 3 John 12-14, P4T

dusty-bible-read-meJohn informs this assembly that those overseers of spiritual food were witnesses of what had happened in the assembly, as well as truth itself in all disciples of Messiah. The visiting brothers also bear witness with the truth of the Savior, Who is High Priest over all. Once again, John declines to detail any further matters, except his expectation to see them soon. Just as he greeted them, he expected them to warmly greet and care for their brothers and sisters in truth, even by name, getting to know them well. (“Following the Right Jesus“)

disciples-praying-in-agreementEven during uncertain times, disciples are set apart and called out to hospitably receive teaching disciples and visitors that desire to meet together and to know more. Persecution is not an excuse to drive out those that are not as well known, or fear those apostles that have come to teach and report back to overseers. Instead, uncertain times are for each disciple to put full trust in the provision of the Savior Yahshua [Jesus] the Messiah and the Set Apart Ruach [‘Holy Spirit’]. (“Authority: The Real Meaning of Romans 13“)

2 John – Love & Truth During Persecution

by John Greene

2ndJohnrevealed

Compared to 1 John and many other Bible books, on the surface, 2 John hardly seems to be remarkable in any way, but more of an afterthought than a real message. But this is hardly the case. 2 John appears to be coded somewhat, but this is because of reality of Roman persecution in the first century. The reality of the assembly of the Yahshua the Messiah is a large family of truth, a family that knows Elohim’s [‘God’, YHWH] truth, the truth that lives within the Spirit and into Elohim’s Sovereignty [Kingdom]. (“Filling Your Life With Truth Instead of Deception“; “Wisdom & the Battle of Two Kingdoms“; “Real Love Resides in Righteousness“; “Love: Departing from Death to Life“)

“To the elder, the chosen lady and those children that I love in truth, and not myself alone, but even all knowing the truth, through the truth that lives in us and will be joined with us into the age. May favor, tender compassion and well-being be in your midst from Father Elohim, and from Master Yahshua Messiah, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.” – 2 John 1-3, P4T

bible-trust-YHWH-1A few have suggested that in 2 John, that John was writing to Mary, the mother of Yahshua [Jesus] and her family. However, less fanciful indications are that John was writing to an elder of an assembly that met in a home, the ekklesia or assembly, personified as the bride of Messiah. In that day, disciples [Christians] who engaged in worship and study often met together in smaller groups and homes as they learned to walk out truth in their lives. Further, John indicates that he is new to this group that he is writing to, based on what he wrote in verse 4:

“I rejoice abundantly because of coming to know of your children walking the Way in truth, just as we have seized upon the command from the Father.” – 2 John 4, P4T

narrow-path-track-righteousnessStarting with verse 5, John repeats some of the ideas that he carried forward in 1 John. John focused on the importance of the truth, how this truth is practiced and protected. This revealed truth of righteousness is what Yahshua [Jesus] revealed in His earthly ministry, just as John emphasized truth and love in his personal ministry. (1 John 3:18; 2 John 1, 3; 3 John 3) The foundation of real love is truth through Elohim’s righteousness, which comes to us through Yahshua [Jesus] and the Set Apart Ruach [‘Holy Spirit’]. To begin with love, truth in righteousness is essential rather than falsehood and fables of the world. (“YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“; “Walking the Track of Righteousness“; “Living as Partners & Friends in Messiah Through Provision“)

“And now I entreat you lady, not as one writing a new kind of command to you, but what we have had from the beginning, that is, loving one another. Then this is love, that we walk the Way according to His commands. This is the command with the purpose that you walk in it, just as has been heard from the beginning. Because many deceivers are coming into the world that do not agree Yahshua Messiah has come in body. These are deceivers and antimessiahs.” – 2 John 5-7, P4T

church deceptionTelling the truth brings disciples into conflict with those people that benefit from deception and delusion. Many have tried to supplant or replace the truth of YHWH with their own message. A popular message of that time in the first century was that Yahshua [Jesus] the Messiah did not come in the body, but only in the Spirit, as a spirit. This was widely taught by people known as gnostics, and likely others as well. (“Unrighteous Chaff Set To Destruction“; “Deceptions of Ages: How People are Deceived“; “The Art of Self-Deception“)

“Discern for yourselves, so that you do not lose what you have labored for, but receive your complete reward. Each one of us that abandons trust, not continuing in the instruction of Messiah, does not possess Elohim. The one that continues in the instruction of Messiah possesses even the Father and the Son. Anyone coming to you and not bearing this instruction, do not receive this one into your family, and do not speak any welcome to this one, because anyone speaking a welcome to this one shares in their wicked deeds.” – 2 John 8-11, P4T

discern both good and evilOur Heavenly Father wants disciples to discern for themselves through the Spirit so that they can be completed in His love. The truth is that when a disciple refuses to bear the instruction of the Messiah, this one does not have Father, Son or Holy Spirit. John warns about even speaking a welcome to anyone that is operating as an antichrist. This is news worth remembering. Anyone that you welcome into your life is subject to corrupt and taint it, just as well as to bless or favor it. That is why you need discernment through the Set Apart Ruach [‘Holy Spirit’]. (“Disciples: His Showbread Walking Out His Righteousness“; “The Antichrist & the War on Reality“; “Being Renewed: Putting Down Deception“; “Persisting Against Deception & Oppression During Tribulation“)

“I have much to write to you, but am not willing with paper and ink. Yet, I expect to come to you and speak face to face in order that our joy may be fulfilled. The children of your chosen sister welcome you. May it be so.” – 2 John 12-13, P4T

boiling in oilWhy would John hesitate to continue in sharing what could have been more important and detailed matters? Some things are better said in person, but this reasoning is unlikely to be the cause of John’s carefulness in sharing more. While the historical record is spotty, John had a record of living under severe persecution under the Romans, including being boiled in oil, being forced to drink poison and being imprisoned on Patmos. (John 2:23-25; Revelation 1:9) His message appears to be coded and non-specific to those he was addressing, suggesting that he was dealing with persecution and the potential of being watched by the Romans and their agents. If his message was intercepted, he did want the assembly of believers to be exposed. (“Leaders & the Antichrist Spirit of Wisdom“; “Incentives of Deception“; “Disciples in the Face of Persecution“)

John didn’t give up, nor did he find retirement in service to Elohim as a choice, even though he lived much longer than most apostles and teachers did in that day. Youth is not necessarily better or stronger in serving Elohim. Love, trust and the regeneration of truth is required, regardless of where you find yourself in life. In prosperous times and during times of persecution, each disciple needs remember the importance of love in living out our Father’s righteousness through the Ruach [Spirit]. (“Loving the World & Rejecting the Messiah“; “Understanding Sin“; “Discernment the World Doesn’t Have“)

Guarding Yourself from the Idolatry of Unbelief

by John Greene

death-to-lifeIn the last study, I reviewed the dilemma that all of mankind faces, the tendency to receive the things of man over what our Heavenly Father, His Son and the Spirit tell each of us – including what the truth of scripture says. However, last time this tendency to listen to the fables of various men and women was considered within the framework of love. At some point, love must be returned or love isn’t love at all – but hatred. So each of us must decide whether we will return that love or reject it for the love of another, even the love of our own selves. (“Consenting to Fables of Men“; “The Idolatry Factor“; “The Basics of Strongholds & Idolatry“)

agreement with YHWHLet’s face the facts. How often do you actually seize upon the testimony of man and give this more validity than anything that Elohim [‘God’, YHWH] has done for you? For example, this happens all the time in political elections, where millions of professed Christians lose sight of reality for a fictional soap opera of worldly ringleaders that want attention to what they claim are one or more of the most important topics in your life – despite the reality that little actually changes over time. They claim to hold the answers, while professed Christians become conflicted and put in turmoil by the drama and the potentials of fear. Another example is listening to the testimony of a certain religious leader over the testimony of scripture based on what this leader professes, even though this profession is not scripture, nor even part of scripture. If you are doing these things, you are likely in the dangerous territory of putting the testimony of man first. Scripture tells us that generic confession alone isn’t the reality behind the truth of righteousness that our Savior spoke, but true AGREEMENT with our Savior IS. (“Understanding Sin“; “Agreement with YHWH – Not the World“; “Millenniums of Human Exploitation“; “The Antichrist & the War on Reality“)

“Beloved, do not believe every ruach [spirit], but discern between the ruachs [spirits], whether they are from Elohim. Because many false prophets come forward to the world. By this One you know the Ruach of Elohim. Every ruach that agrees with the living appearance of Yahshua [Jesus] Messiah is from Elohim. Then, every ruach that does not agree with the living appearance of Yahshua Messiah is not from Elohim. This then is the antichrist that you heard will make an appearance, and at the present time, is already in the world.” – 1 John 4:1-3, PT4

“Then this is the witness, that Elohim offered to us everlasting life, and the same life is in His own Son. Anyone possessing the Son possesses life. Anyone not possessing the Son of Elohim does not possess life. I have written this to you believers on the Authority of the Son of Elohim with the purpose that you know you possess everlasting life, and that you believe on the Authority of the Son of Elohim. Then this is the outspokenness we possess in Him, because when asked anything according to His own purpose, He hears us. Then because when we know He hears us, whatever is asked, that we know we possess the requests that are asked from Him.” – 1 John 5:11-15, P4T

american exceptionalism vanityIs there a requirement in the offer for everlasting life? Many have decided that the answer is ‘no’. However, John agrees with the rest of scripture, indicating a different conclusion is truth. To seize after the testimony of man instead of the testimony of Elohim is idolatry, which is unbelief, the only sin that always leads to death. Preferring the testimony of man over Elohim is supplanting His Authority, becoming as an antichrist. When a disciple fully accepts what He says and seeks to build a relationship with Elohim, this one is said to possess or hold life through Messiah, being able to be regenerated through the Set Apart Spirit of Elohim [‘Holy Spirit’]. This relationship builds trust and the confidence that He hears the concerns of His people. As individuals, we believe in what has been done for us. In this way, through trust, each of us possesses Him in mind and heart, or at least, is actively seeking to do this, even as you seek to banish the love of the world from your life. (“Leaders & the Antichrist Spirit of Wisdom“; “Love: Departing From Death to Life“; “Loving the World & Rejecting the Messiah“; “Foundation of Salvation“; “Roots of Salvation“)

“When anyone observes his brother missing the mark in sin not ending in death, that one will ask and receive life for not sinning into death. There is sin that leads to death due to a darkened and hardened heart. Do not speak with the purpose of praying around that sin or for these rebels. (Jeremiah 7:6-16, 11:13-14) All unrighteousness is sin, and there is sin not leading to death. Know that all regenerated of Elohim do not miss the mark, but are regenerated from Elohim guarding that one, and wickedness does not touch that one. Know that we are from Elohim, and the whole world is laid out in wickedness. But know that the Son of Elohim is present and grants us deeper understanding with the purpose of knowing truth in His Son Yahshua Messiah. This is the true Elohim and everlasting life. Beloved, guard yourselves from idols. May it be so.” – 1 John 5:16-21, P4T

baptism-of-trust-Holy-SpiritJohn admonishes disciples to observe their brothers and sisters in truth, to assist them in belief and relationship with their Father, and encouraging them to repent. The sin of unbelief leads to death and cannot be overcome through prayer, except through belief and repentance before death. Disciples are regenerated through the Set Apart Ruach [‘Holy Spirit‘], protected by Elohim and remain untouched by wickedness. Disciples can come to know deeper understanding through discernment in the Ruach [Spirit] through Yahshua Messiah. Each of us needs to ask and seek to be in harmony with His Will, to be in complete agreement with Him. (“The Importance of Practical Repentance“; “Faith: What You Believe is Important“; “Discernment the World Doesn’t Have“)

“For YAHWEH so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, HRB
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your righteousness. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. May it be as you have promised!
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The name Yahshua [Y’shua] is an original language name for Jesus.
He is often referred to simply as the Messiah or Master.
