“And passing by, He saw a man, blind from birth. And His taught ones asked Him, saying, ‘Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he should be born blind?’ Yahshua answered, ‘Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of Elohim might be made manifest in him.'” – John 9:1-3, ISR98
A common belief in Jewish culture was that calamity or suffering is the result of sin. But Messiah used this man’s suffering to teach about faith and magnify His Father. Then, as now, we live in a fallen world (a place of injustice) where good behavior is often overlooked or taken for granted and evil behavior is often not punished. Therefore, innocent and righteous people often suffer. YHWH does not always take suffering away because He has better ideas. If YHWH took suffering away from you, would you serve Him out of convenience and comfort or out of love and devotion? Regardless of the reason for your suffering, your Heavenly Father has the power to help you deal with it. Like the man that was blind from birth, people often suffer with disease, tragedy and disability. When you suffer in such a way, do you ask “What did I do wrong?” Instead, ask your Heavenly Father for strength for the trial and a clearer perspective on what is happening in your life. (“YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“; “YHWH’s Protection in Difficult Times“; “Going through the Valleys of Difficulty“; “Serving for YHWH’s Glory“; “The Fear of Armageddon“; “Christianity: A Crisis in Prayer & Spirit“; “The Plight of the Strong Man“)
“For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, RNKJV
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 glory. 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]. Amen.
You 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 names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
