Plans To Prosper You

by John and Ruth Greene

“’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.’” – Jeremiah 29:11, direct translation

babylon_lion2This was the message to His beloved people after they had been sentenced to spend 70 years of captivity in Babylon. The fact is that many, if not most, of YHWH’s people stayed on in Babylon, continuing to adopt and live in the ways of that nation. They did not return to Jerusalem with the difficult job of rebuilding, even though great provisions had been made for them through King Artaxerxes. (Nehemiah 2) In much the same way, multitudes of professed Christians want to have nothing to do with either personal sacrifice or obedience to YHWH or their Messiah. (“Redeemed Through Obedience & Faith“; “YHWH’s People Walk by Faith and Obedience to His Word“; “YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“)

We are personally delighted that your Heavenly Father has a plan for your life, as so many ministries worldwide openly declare. What is that plan and are you following it? (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 5:29; John 8:31-32, 44) Does the Holy Spirit speak into your life? (John 14:26; Acts 1:8) Are these ministries and what you believe actually making the Word of YHWH of little or no effect? (Mark 7:13; 2 Corinthians 11:4; Galatians 6:1-8; Revelation 21:8) Right before the Father announced His intent for His people, He revealed the following:

whose plan for you?

“’Do not be deceived by the prophets and diviners that are near to your heart of deception. Do not consider dreams that you dream. For they prophesy deceitfully in My Authority. I have not appointed them,’ says YHWH.” – Jeremiah 29:8b-9, direct translation (Titus 1:9, 2: 1; 2 Timothy 4:3)

Just as Yahshua [Jesus] warns us in Matthew 24:4-5, He warned His people then. Deceivers and false prophets would be among them. The Jews were warned not to encourage or enable these deceivers. Disciples of the Master Yahshua [Jesus] have the same charge. They must not even tithe or support deceivers in any way that they can prevent. Being fooled is a deadly possibility, so spiritual maturity, the ability to discern is essential! (Acts 17:10-12; 1 Corinthians 12:10; “Are You Useful to YHWH?“; “A Warning to Disciples“; “Breaking Strongholds of False Authority“)

plans of manRemember that your Heavenly Father says that obedience is better than sacrifice. (1 Samuel 15:22-23; Isaiah 11:1-11; Hebrews 10:4; 1 John 2:4) We must also remember than rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. You cannot blindly follow anyone, because rebellion to the Elohim of Hosts is a death-dealing abomination to Him. Consider that when you sacrifice to your Heavenly Father [YHWH], you are giving to Him what is His to begin with. Sacrifices acknowledge YHWH, but they don’t create obedience or change the heart. Sacrifices don’t change the way you think. (Acts 4:12; John 14:6; James 4:7; 1 John 2:3, 3:24, 5:3; 2 John 1:6; Romans 6:6, 12:1; Hebrews 13:15-16) Yahshua [Jesus] warned His disciples that they would be obedient, not to the world, but to YHWH’s Word. (John 12:26, 14:15, 23-24, 15:10; “Deceptions of Ages: How People are Deceived“)

Because we walk in the flesh, we do not serve according to the flesh. For the tools of our service in warfare are not fleshly, but powerful through Elohim to the destruction of strongholds. Destroy imaginations and all high places that are exalted over the knowledge of Elohim and make captive every mind to obedience of the Messiah.” – 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, direct translation

This is not through divination, such as obedience to our own word, but through the Word of your Heavenly Father and the sacrifice of Messiah alone! (1 Peter 1:14) How easily a man or woman can put self above the Elohim of Hosts, making self and outside interests little gods above YHWH. (John 5:24, 12:47-48) This idolatry is nothing less than unbelief and rebellion to His purpose, His plan for you! This intention is not anything your heart leans to, but rather, through the Word of YHWH as His Spirit works through you. (“Video: What is Idolatry?“; “The Idolatry Factor“; “Pursue Righteousness“)

“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
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 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.
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 names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
