“TRADITION”

Tradition

Isaiah 29:13 Then the Lord said, “Because this people draw near with their words and honor Me with their lip service, but they remove their hearts far from Me, and their reverence for Me consists of tradition learned by rote, and Yeshua says in the New covenant, Mark 7:8 Neglecting the commandment of God, you hold to the tradition of men.”

One must feel ever so very sorry for the tradition of the Jewish people who have learned so much from their seminaries and have added so much to the word of God. It was exactly the same when Yeshua was here in flesh and blood, the elders were constantly at Him because He did not follow their tradition which they had made up and was not what God had commanded. They became blinded because of their tradition; they were unable to see the truth when it was standing right before them.

And after all these years since Yeshua was in our midst, not much has changed. There is a law that if one follows the teachings of Yeshua, they are no longer Jewish and cannot become citizens of Israel. How crazy is that. One can follow Buddha or Mohamed or any other false god but the one they fear is Yeshua.

I know that the God of Israel will eventually open their eyes but when?

“Dark – Light”

Light

Genesis 1:4 God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness.

In the beginning, darkness was on the face of the deep until God spoke light into this world. In Jewish culture, according to the commandment of God, a day begins at sundown and there is night, darkness till morning when we are able to see more clearly. It is the same with our lives, we enter this world from the darkness of the womb into the light of this world. Though we walk by the light of this world in the physical surroundings, in the spirit, we are actually walking in darkness until we get ‘born again’ by the Spirit of God and the true Light of life enters our consciousness. Until that time, we really are walking in the darkness of this earthly existence.

Isaiah 5:20a Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;

Have you noticed how evil television has become in the last few years, even some of the commercials are bordering on pornography. And the video games teach children the art of destruction and killing.The things that the God of Creation calls evil are somehow becoming commonplace in the church as well and even in the preachers. We are living in a very dark world today and must keep a close walk with God lest we stumble and fall.

Matthew 5:16 Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

As the darkness gets ever darker, we, who follow the Lord of Heaven must keep our lights burning brighter and brighter. Amen

“A Voice in the Wilderness of Time”

A Voice crying out

I must depart from my usual post arrangement as the Lord has been heavy on my heart for those who rebel against Him. I look at all that is taking place in the world today, all of the greed, immorality, drugs and degradation and my heart weeps for those who have taken the path that leads away from the Creator. They know not what they do, it is this loving God who wants all to come to Him for love, peace, joy, happiness, kindness and all the other fulfilling attributes that He will give them. Greed and lust and immorality will never satisfy since the God who formed us in the womb has ordained us to live in a Garden of His creation soon to come.

Today, I want to draw attention to that Democratic party in the USA that is going against everything Godly. I was reading in Isaiah 66 from the Voice translation and there it gives the end result of actions against this awesome God of Creation.

Isaiah 66:22-24 Because just as the new heavens and the new earth that I am making will go on by My enduring will, so your name and the people who come from you will go on as well. From one month to the next, on Sabbath after Sabbath, everyone, every living thing, will come to this holy place to honor Me as God of all. This is My word to you. They’ll visit the site where the people who rejected Me lie rotting on the ground, crawling with worms that never die on a fire that just keeps smoldering. All who see it will recoil at the horrible sight.

And, here is a bit of a note at the beginning of this chapter in Isaiah:

The creation the prophet sees—the new earth—is radically different from the one everyone knows. At some deep level, everyone recognizes that the everyday world is not the world as God intends it; things are not the way they are supposed to be. But God will make everything new again. In that day, the painful past will recede and vanish. Unbridled joy and celebration will eclipse grief and sorrow. Jerusalem, the holy city, will become the center of the world. Long lives will be the norm. Peace will be secure without exception. God’s blessing will settle over all creation. Creation itself, with all its complexities, will be made new. No predator. No prey. Just peace and harmony throughout. This is a world only God can create when He creates it anew.

This is what the Garden of Eden was all about, a place of absolute perfection but Satan, Lucifer coerced them to listen to him instead of their Father and we see the result. But now, we can live an eternity in Paradise but it takes a decision to want Him as our Father.

Deuteronomy 30:19 I’m calling on the heavens and the earth to be the witnesses against you. I gave you the choice today between life and death, between being blessed or being cursed. Choose life, so that you and your descendants may live!
