“To Open Blind Eyes”

A Blooming Rose

Isaiah 35:5 Then the eyes of the blind will be opened and the ears of the deaf will be unstopped.

 I have to say at the beginning of this journal entry, it is not my desire to cause Jewish people to become Christian, but to cause Jewish people to see their Messiah. It is also my desire that all races should come to know and accept Yeshua/Jesus into their lives and hearts. I discovered Him (the Creator God) some 55 years ago while serving in the U.S. Air Force. I met Him in a small church in Maple Valley, Washington. I was there looking for a nice girl but when the alter call came, the God of Creation spoke clearly to me that I would not get another chance to receive Him. Since that time, I have come many times close to death but eluded the enemy of my soul because God has called me to be a witness for Him, not so much with pen and parchment but with a camera. (This is why I always include a photo with anything God has for me to say).

Thus, I am trusting that in the year 2019, I will have much to say to glorify my Savior and relate anything else He may have to impress me with. So, “Good-By 2018” and I look forward to an eventful 2019 with Him. Blessings to all who follow this post and may you all have a fruitful New Year.

“First Born Son, Yeshua”


Luke 2:7 And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

The Son of God, who came to set us free is Himself humbly born through a young girl and His bed is a feeding troth for sheep. He cannot feed Himself, He cannot wipe His own bottom, He is completely helpless as are all newborn children. Miriam must change and wash Him as she would any child because He is utterly helpless to fend for Himself. The Son of God has placed Himself at the mercy of mortal man from the beginning. This is a King, a Priest of Royal lineage even here. What shall we say, how can we fathom the event. This is such an awesome event in the history of mankind. And Miriam had been asked, “Are you willing?”

From the very beginning, we are given free will and it continues even to this very day, “Are you willing to give Yeshua a birthplace in your heart?” He was willing to be dependent on us, are we willing to be dependent on Him? Really, there is nothing to lose and everything to gain.

“The Council”


Genesis 1:26a & 27 “Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness”  So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.

As I was thinking this morning upon the awesome decision of the council in Heaven to send one of their members to earth to be the salvation of mankind, I was just overwhelmed with the thought of it and of the love which is so far beyond our understanding. Every one of the council agreed to be the one to go since, as the Word says, they all act and think as one body. John 17:21 that they all may be one, as Thou, Father, art in Me and I in Thee, that they also may be one in Us, .

Finally, the decision was made to send Yeshua to be the one. Since the Council lives outside of time and have seen the end from the beginning, it is decided that Yeshua must become one of them but without the sin of the fallen nature and yet fully and completely one of flesh and blood. Therefore, as in the rest of the creation, the seed is in itself, (Genesis 1:12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind; and God saw that it was good.) Elohim had a seed planted into the willing young virgin who had to be of the house of King David as well as the house of the Zadok Priesthood. Miriam was a perfect candidate and also willing to receive the blessing. Yeshua was conceived into Miriam and began His earthly life around the 25th of December and to see the light of earth’s day by birth 9 months later during the Feast of Tabernacles which is the Feast that celebrates “God with us”. And how do we know Yeshua was not born in December? Because it is the rainy season in Israel and shepherds and sheep are not in the fields during the rainy season. Luke 2:8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.  These shepherds were told of the birth in Bethlehem. And again, why was there no room in the inn when Joseph and Miriam arrived? It is because, it was a time of the Feast of Tabernacles and all males are required to come to Jerusalem to celebrate which is only about 3 Kilometers (just under 2 miles) away.

I have way too much on my heart for today, I shall continue tomorrow.
