Slippery Slope

Shalom,

Being a believer in Messiah can create some real difficulties in our walk with our Messiah. The world we live in can be so anti-God and Anti Religion which makes little room for accommodating a Christian way of life. I have heard many things over the last few weeks that have grieved me.

I sent out a video about why Christians should observe the Sabbath Saturday instead of Sunday. The response was confusing to me.  One response basically told me to stop arguing over the Shabbat and Sunday and another said it is basically impossible with the way the world is to obey the Sabbath they both implied that celebrating the Sabbath has no bearing on my relationship with Messiah but was mostly religious.

 I will have to disagree with their hypothesis. I believe celebrating the seventh day as the weekly Sabbath takes faith because without faith you cannot obey. Yeshua/Jesus is the author and finisher of our Faith, therefore, we cannot have faith without having a relationship with our Messiah Yeshua. 

Of course, we can worship God any day of the week. Yes, there are times when we are unable to worship with other believers on the Sabbath. Sometimes we must get the ox out of the ditch on the Sabbath. Observing the Sabbath is not a way to Salvation only faith in Yeshua is the way.

I also heard a preacher say basically it was ok to mix the holy with the profane so that people would not hate God. This so grieved me, and I believed this may have grieved the Holy Spirit only the Holy Spirit knows this. What does this have to do with observing the Sabbath on the seventh day? If we make exceptions to Gods Word, we may lose our anchor and drift from Gods Truth and lose our way like the Pharisees. The Pharisees added to the Word of God. Do we not think that if we take away from His word we will not suffer the same fate?

I don’t believe we have to build huge walls around Gods Word but we must seek to know the truth and observe with all our heart soul and might Gods instructions, precepts and commands. The enemy of our souls is looking for whom he may devour. Gods Word is our Anchor in the days to come. Yeshua is the Word let us not go down the slippery slope of excuses of why we won’t obey Him.

We must continually walk in repentance asking Adonai to search for any wicked way in us. His return is imminent.

Answered Prayer

I saw a post the other day that put out a list of all the fires, hurricanes, flooding and earthquakes that are currently all over the world in about a weeks time. Such devastation is hard to imagine the loss of life people’s lives destroyed is one day.

Many people are saying that these storms are from the devil. I am not sure about all that.

In America Christians have been praying

2 Chronicles 7:14 (NASB77) 14 and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray, and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and will heal their land

As believers, we should expect God to answer this. How? We see in verse 13!

2 Chronicles 7:13 (NASB77) 13 " If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people,

To me, it is clear that God is answering our prayer and we must pray that we do humble ourselves and that everyone seeks His Face and turns from their wicked ways. They say there is no atheist in a fox hole. We must pray that our nation will find God and turn from our wicked ways.

New Day

Shalom,

Every morning is a new day in Yeshua (Jesus) His Mercies are great every day we should embrace the freshness of His mercies and try again.  Imagine every morning as a brand new start in life.  Every night at a time to reflect and repent so we can rest in the merciful, loving arms of our Messiah. 

Take each day one moment at a time standing in faith that our Father in heaven believes in us. Believing that what he has created is beautifully and wonderfully made. God is perfect and does not make mistakes.  Love yourself and love God for His perfect creation YOU! 

Make no mistake we need God for everything we do for life itself. See yourself with the eyes of Yeshua (Jesus) you are his bride, and He loves you with an everlasting love that no human or devil can take from you. Embrace Him fully every morning, so He may give you the courage and the grace to tackle the temptation of life.  Seek Him throughout the day for His wisdom, mercy, and discernment.  Ask him in the evening before you close your eyes for the peace that passes all understanding that everything you did or said is in His hands and nothing, no nothing is impossible for God and You can do all things through Messiah who strengthens you.
