When you can not see above the clouds from the
deep valley of trials and despair, remember the
beauty that awaits your break through as you hold
onto Yeshuas hand and hope in His faithfulness
Behold, Elohim is my salvation I will trust,
and not be afraid for YAHWEH is my strength and
my song he also is become my salvation. (Isa
Tremble, thou earth, at the presence of Yahweh,
at the presence of the Elohim of Jacob Which
turned the rock into a standing water, the flint
into a fountain of waters. (Ps 1147-8)
The Devotion of Hearing Samuel answered, Speak,
for Your servant hears 1 Samuel 310 Just
because I have listened carefully and intently to
one thing from Elohim does not mean that I will
listen to everything He says. I show Elohim my
lack of love and respect for Him by the
insensitivity of my heart and mind toward what He
says. If I love my friend, I will instinctively
understand what he wants. And Yeshua said, "You
are My friends if you do as I command you" ( John
1514 ). Have I disobeyed some command of my
Lords this week? If I had realized that it was a
command of Yeshua, I would not have deliberately
disobeyed it. But most of us show incredible
disrespect to Elohim because we dont even hear
Him. He might as well never have spoken to us.
The goal of my spiritual life is such close
identification with Messiah Yeshua that I will
always hear Elohim and know that Elohim always
hears me (John 1141 ). If I am united with
Messiah Yeshua, I hear Elohim all the time
through the devotion of hearing. A flower, a
tree, or a servant of Elohim may convey Elohims
message to me. What hinders me from hearing is my
attention to other things. It is not that I dont
want to hear Elohim, but I am not devoted in the
right areas of my life. I am devoted to things
and even to service and my own convictions.
Elohim may say whatever He wants, but I just
dont hear Him. The attitude of a child of Elohim
should always be, "Speak, for Your servant
hears." If I have not developed and nurtured this
devotion of hearing, I can only hear Elohims
voice at certain times. At other times I become
deaf to Him because my attention is to other
things things which I think I must do. This is
not living the life of a child of Elohim. Have
you heard Elohims voice today?
Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not
receive the kingdom of Elohim (God) as a little
child shall in no wise enter therein. (Luke
Fear not, little flock for it is your Father's
good pleasure to give you the kingdom. (Luke
1232) Do you feel like a little child in our
Heavenly Fathers care?
Now therefore in the sight of all Israel the
congregation of Yahweh, and in the audience of
our Elohim, keep and seek for all the
commandments of Yahweh your Elohim that ye may
possess this good land, and leave it for an
inheritance for your children after you for
ever. (1 Chron 288)
By the word of Yahweh were the heavens made and
all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an
heap he layeth up the depth in storehouses. Let
all the earth fear Yahweh let all the
inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
For he spake, and it was done he commanded, and
it stood fast. (Ps 336-9)
Yahweh has even ordered the pathways for the
birds of the airAs He surely orders the paths of
those who trust in Him.
The steps of a good man are ordered by Yahweh
and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he
shall not be utterly cast down for Yahweh
upholdeth him with his hand. (Ps 3723-24)
Am I My Brothers Keeper?" None of us lives to
himself . . . Romans 147 Has it ever dawned on
you that you are responsible spiritually to
Elohim for other people? For instance, if I allow
any turning away from Elohim in my private life,
everyone around me suffers. We "sit together in
the heavenly places . . ." ( Ephesians 26 ). "If
one member suffers, all the members suffer with
it . . ." ( 1 Corinthians 1226 ). If you allow
physical selfishness, mental carelessness, moral
insensitivity, or spiritual weakness, everyone in
contact with you will suffer. But you ask, "Who
is sufficient to be able to live up to such a
lofty standard?" "Our sufficiency is from Elohim
. . ." and Elohim alone ( 2 Corinthians 35 ).
"You shall be witnesses to Me . . ." ( Acts 18
). How many of us are willing to spend every bit
of our nervous, mental, moral, and spiritual
energy for Messiah Yeshua? That is what Elohim
means when He uses the word witness. But it takes
time, so be patient with yourself. Why has Elohim
left us on the earth? Is it simply to be saved
and sanctified? No, it is to be at work in
service to Him. Am I willing to be broken bread
and poured-out wine for Him? Am I willing to be
of no value to this age or this life except for
one purpose and one alone to be used to disciple
men and women to the Master Messiah Yeshua. My
life of service to Elohim is the way I say "thank
you" to Him for His inexpressibly wonderful
salvation. Remember, it is quite possible for
Elohim to set any of us aside if we refuse to be
of service to Him ". . . lest, when I have
preached to others, I myself should become
disqualified" ( 1 Corinthians 927 ).
Honour and majesty are before him strength and
beauty are in his sanctuary. Give unto Yahweh, O
ye kindreds of the people, give unto Yahweh glory
and strength. Give unto Yahweh the glory due
unto his name bring an offering, and come into
his courts. O worship Yahweh in the beauty of
holiness fear before him, all the earth. (Ps
I know that, whatsoever Elohim doeth, it shall
be for ever nothing can be put to it, nor any
thing taken from it and Elohim doeth it, that
men should fear before him. (Eccl 314)  Let us
hear the conclusion of the whole matter Fear
Elohim, and keep his commandments for this is
the whole duty of man. (Eccl 1213)
And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all
his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
Wherefore, if Elohim so clothe the grass of the
field, which to day is, and tomorrow is cast into
the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye
of little faith? But seek ye first the kingdom
of Elohim, and his righteousness and all these
things shall be added unto you. (Matt 629-30,
he leadeth me beside the still waters. He
restoreth my soul he leadeth me in the paths of
righteousness for his name's sake. (Ps 232b-3)
Will you let Yeshua, the good shepherd, give your
heart and mind peace?
The Inspiration of Spiritual Initiative Arise
from the dead . . . Ephesians 514 Not all
initiative, the willingness to take the first
step, is inspired by Elohim. Someone may say to
you, "Get up and get going! Take your reluctance
by the throat and throw it overboard just do
what needs to be done!" That is what we mean by
ordinary human initiative. But when the Spirit of
Elohim comes to us and says, in effect, "Get up
and get going," suddenly we find that the
initiative is inspired. We all have many dreams
and aspirations when we are young, but sooner or
later we realize we have no power to accomplish
them. We cannot do the things we long to do, so
our tendency is to think of our dreams and
aspirations as dead. But Elohim comes and says to
us, "Arise from the dead . . . ." When Elohim
sends His inspiration, it comes to us with such
miraculous power that we are able to "arise from
the dead" and do the impossible. The remarkable
thing about spiritual initiative is that the life
and power comes after we "get up and get going."
Elohim does not give us overcoming life He gives
us life as we overcome. When the inspiration of
Elohim comes, and He says, "Arise from the dead .
. . ," we have to get ourselves up Elohim will
not lift us up. Our Lord said to the man with the
withered hand, "Stretch out your hand" ( Matthew
1213 ). As soon as the man did so, his hand was
healed. But he had to take the initiative. If we
will take the initiative to overcome, we will
find that we have the inspiration of Elohim,
because He immediately gives us the power of
Thy mercy, O Yahweh, is in the heavens and thy
faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds. Thy
righteousness is like the great mountains thy
judgments are a great deep O Yahweh, thou
preservest man and beast. (Ps 365-6)
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished,
and all the host of them. And on the seventh day
Elohim ended his work which he had made and he
rested on the seventh day from all his work which
he had made. And Elohim blessed the seventh day,
and sanctified it because that in it he had
rested from all his work which Elohim created and
made. (Gen 21-3)
The Sabbath (Saturday) is the seventh day it
is Yahwehs eternal 4th Commandment
Fear ye not me? saith Yahweh will ye not
tremble at my presence, which have placed the
sand for the bound of the sea by a perpetual
decree, that it cannot pass it and though the
waves thereof toss themselves, yet can they not
prevail though they roar, yet can they not pass
over it? (Jer 522)
I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be
for a token of a covenant between me and the
earth And the bow shall be in the cloud and I
will look upon it, that I may remember the
everlasting covenant between Elohim and every
living creature of all flesh that is upon the
earth.(Gen 913 16)
Taking the Initiative Against Depression Arise
and eat 1 Kings 195 The angel in this passage
did not give Elijah a vision, or explain the
Scriptures to him, or do anything remarkable. He
simply told Elijah to do a very ordinary thing,
that is, to get up and eat. If we were never
depressed, we would not be alive only material
things dont suffer depression. If human beings
were not capable of depression, we would have no
capacity for happiness and exaltation. There are
things in life that are designed to depress us
for example, things that are associated with
death. Whenever you examine yourself, always take
into account your capacity for depression. When
the Spirit of Elohim comes to us, He does not
give us glorious visions, but He tells us to do
the most ordinary things imaginable. Depression
tends to turn us away from the everyday things of
Elohims creation. But whenever Elohim steps in,
His inspiration is to do the most natural, simple
things-things we would never have imagined Elohim
was in, but as we do them we find Him there. The
inspiration that comes to us in this way is an
initiative against depression. But we must take
the first step and do it in the inspiration of
Elohim. If, however, we do something simply to
overcome our depression, we will only deepen it.
But when the Spirit of Elohim leads us
instinctively to do something, the moment we do
it the depression is gone. As soon as we arise
and obey, we enter a higher plane of life.
Yahweh has given us our minds for great things
He allows us to delight in work done for His
glory and for the good of mankindwe need always
do the best He enables us to do we are stewards
of His creation.
So Elohim created man in his own image, in the
image of Elohim created he him male and female
created he them. And Elohim blessed them, and
Elohim said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply,
and replenish the earth, and subdue it and have
dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the
fowl of the air, and over every living thing that
moveth upon the earth. (Gen 127-28)
The Seasons remind us of the passing of our
lives and Yahweh gave us the beauty of the fall
panorama of colors to exhibit the way that we the
Redeemed should see the end of our seasons as
we approach our eternal destination to see Him
in all His Glory.
Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O Elohim,
forsake me not until I have shewed thy strength
unto this generation, and thy power to every one
that is to come. (Ps 7118)
Remember me, O Yahweh, with the favour that thou
bearest unto thy people O visit me with thy
salvation That I may see the good of thy
chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy
nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.
(Ps 1064-5)
While we look not at the things which are seen,
but at the things which are not seen for the
things which are seen are temporal but the
things which are not seen are eternal. 2 Cor
418 Mans creations decay with time Yahwehs
are eternal.
The earth is Yahwehs, and the fulness thereof
the world, and they that dwell therein. (Ps 241)
The Determination to Serve The Son of Man did
not come to be served, but to serve . . .
Matthew 2028 Yeshua also said, "Yet I am among
you as the One who serves" (Luke 2227). Pauls
idea of service was the same as Yahwehs ". . .
ourselves your bondservants for Yeshua sake" (2
Corinthians 45). We somehow have the idea that a
person called to the ministry is called to be
different and above other people. But according
to Yeshua Messiah, he is called to be a "doormat"
for others called to be their spiritual leader,
but never their superior. Paul said, "I know how
to be abased . . ." (Philippians 412). Pauls
idea of service was to pour his life out to the
last drop for others. And whether he received
praise or blame made no difference. As long as
there was one human being who did not know
Yeshua, Paul felt a debt of service to that
person until he did come to know Him. But the
chief motivation behind Pauls service was not
love for others but love for his Master. If our
devotion is to the cause of humanity, we will be
quickly defeated and broken-hearted, since we
will often be confronted with a great deal of
ingratitude from other people. But if we are
motivated by our love for Elohim, no amount of
ingratitude will be able to hinder us from
serving one another. Pauls understanding of how
Messiah had dealt with him is the secret behind
his determination to serve others. "I was
formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an
insolent man . . ." (1 Timothy 113). In other
words, no matter how badly others may have
treated Paul, they could never have treated him
with the same degree of spite and hatred with
which he had treated Yeshua Messiah. Once we
realize that Yeshua has served us even to the
depths of our meagerness, our selfishness, and
our sin, nothing we encounter from others will be
able to exhaust our determination to serve others
for His sake.
For Yahweh shall comfort Zion He will comfort
all her waste places and He will make her
wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the
garden of Yahweh joy and gladness shall be found
therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.
(Isa 513)
From the rising of the sun unto the going down
of the same Yahwehs name is to be praised. (Ps
Praise Yahweh for WHO HE IS He is worthy of ALL
our praise!
And the work of righteousness shall be peace
and the effect of righteousness quietness and
assurance for ever. And my people shall dwell in
a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings,
and in quiet resting places (Isa 3217-18)
Do You Now Believe?" By this we believe . . . .
Yeshua answered them, Do you now believe? John
1630-31 Now we believe. . . ." But Yeshua asks,
"Do you . . . ? Indeed the hour is coming . . .
that you . . . will leave Me alone" (John
1631-32). Many have left Yeshua Messiah alone
and yet tried to serve Him out of a sense of
duty, or because they sense a need as a result of
their own discernment. The reason for this is
actually the absence of the resurrection life of
Yeshua. Our soul has gotten out of intimate
contact with Elohim by leaning on our own
religious understanding (Proverbs 35-6). This is
not deliberate sin and there is no punishment
attached to it. But once a person realizes how he
has hindered his understanding of Yeshua Messiah
and caused uncertainties, sorrows, and
difficulties for himself, it is with shame and
remorse that he has to return. We need to rely
on the resurrection life of Yeshua on a much
deeper level than we do now. We should get in the
habit of continually seeking His counsel on
everything, instead of making our own common
sense decisions and then asking Him to bless
them. He cannot bless them it is not in His
realm to do so, and those decisions are severed
from reality. If we do something simply out of a
sense of duty, we are trying to live up to a
standard that competes with Yeshua Messiah. We
become a prideful, arrogant person, thinking we
know what to do in every situation. We have put
our sense of duty on the throne of our life,
instead of enthroning the resurrection life of
Yeshua. We are not told to "walk in the light" of
our conscience or in the light of a sense of
duty, but to "walk in the light as He is in the
light . . ." (1 John 17). When we do something
out of a sense of duty, it is easy to explain the
reasons for our actions to others. But when we do
something out of obedience to the Lord, there can
be no other explanation-just obedience. That is
why a saint can be so easily ridiculed and
That our garners may be full, affording all
manner of store that our sheep may bring forth
thousands and ten thousands in our streets
That our oxen may be strong to labour that there
be no breaking in, nor going out that there be
no complaining in our streets. Happy is that
people, that is in such a case yea, happy is
that people, whose Elohim is Yahweh. (Ps
Are you one of those happy people?
For whosoever shall call upon the name of Yahweh
(The LORD) shall be saved. (Rom 1013)
You trust men to build bridges over dangerous
chasms, will you trust Yahweh to build a bridge
between this life and eternity? He has, Yeshua
(Jesus) is the ONLY bridge to your future and
someday soon you WILL need to cross that bridge
are you ready?
For by him were all things created, that are in
heaven, and that are in earth, visible and
invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions,
or principalities, or powers all things were
created by him, and for him And he is before
all things, and by him all things consist. (Col
Yeshua is Lord of All
