The Reconciling

The House of Israel and the House of Judah have been divided since sometime between 997 BCE and 928 BCE; There are varying opinions about the date. There is no varying opinion, however, about the reuniting of the two houses. The two houses will be reunited and it will be an amazing event.  Study and show yourself to be a Berean. You know who the house of Judah is.  Who is the house of Israel? The blinders are coming off and the House of Israel is beginning to see who they are. The miracle of Hannah/Ruth will carry the message of reconciliation to YHWH, between the two houses, and within the two houses.   

 Be amazed, be amazed for YHWH is working a work in your day that even if you were told, you would not believe!!

 (Habakkuk 1:5)


It’s Wheat Harvest…

Do you not say, It is yet four months and the harvest comes?

Behold, I say to you, Lift up your eyes and behold the fields,

for they are already white to harvest.

John 4:35

It is the time of wheat harvest right now…and the fields are white.

The Rewards of Waiting…

Have you not known? Have you not heard? YHWH, the everlasting Elohim, the Creator of the ends of the earth; He is not faint, nor does He grow weary; there is no searching to His understanding. He gives power to the faint, and to him with no vigor He increases might. Even youths are faint and fatigued, and young men stumbling shall stumble; but the ones waiting for YHWH shall renew power; they shall go up with wings as the eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not be faint!

(Isa 40:28-31)

Sad, Sad…..

And he said, Then I beg you, father, that you send him to my father’s house;(for I have five brothers, so that he may witness to them, that they not also come to this place of torment). 

 Abraham said to him, They have Moses and the Prophets, let them hear them.  But he said, No, father Abraham, but if one should go from the dead to them, they will repent…And he said to him,

 If they will not hear Moses and the Prophets,

 they will not be persuaded

even if one from the dead should rise.  

Luke 16:27-30 

Even when it happens, folks will STILL not believe….Sad, sad 

And A Second Time….

Blessed is he who waits and comes to the thousand, three hundred and thirty five days.

(Dan 12:12)

How Does It Further HIS Kingdom?

Admittedly, we sometimes face “gray areas” —

things that are not necessarily forbidden by the Bible,

But still may not belong in our lives.

When you are unsure whether or not something is wrong,

Ask yourself these questions: Does it glorify YHWH?

Can I offer a prayer of thanksgiving for it?

Does it draw me closer to Yahshua,

or does it make me preoccupied with this world?

Will it harm my health or hurt me in some other way?

Will it cause someone else to stumble spiritually or morally,

especially a less mature Believer?

I have never forgotten what a wise Believer said to me many years ago:

“When in doubt — don’t”

From Billy Graham’s “The Journey”

Could Strong’s Be Wrong?

Have you ever had someone call you by another name that wasn’t yours?  My husband, whose name is Rusty, is sometimes mistakenly called “Randy”.  Usually, he is gracious about it and simply lets it go.   However, if the relationship grows into a true friendship, he will find a gentle way to correct that person. Obviously, if the relationship is to be a close one, he would want the person to know his real name! 

Some years ago, the Heavenly Father gently corrected me about His name. For years, I had called Him by the titles “God” and “Lord.”  As He led me to study His Name, I discovered some awesome as well as disturbing things.

First of all, I discovered what His real Name is: 

I am Yahweh; that is My name; and I will not give My glory to another, nor My praise to engraved images. (Isaiah 42:8)

The Strong’s number for Yahweh* is 3068.  I looked that up in the new Strong’s Concordance and this is what I found:

LORD (Yahweh); the proper name of the one true God; knowledge and use of the name implies personal or covenant relationship.”  (emphasis mine)

Wow.  Did you read that?  Knowledge and use of the name implies personal and covenant relationship.  That is a direct quote from Strong’s. Could Strong’s be wrong?

I then discovered that over 6,000 times, Yahweh’s name has been changed from “Yahweh” to “LORD” in most translations today.  Over 6,000 times!  If you look in Strong’s you will count pages after page of this occurrence.  My question is: By whose authority was HIS NAME changed  even once

 By these translators’ hands, we have forgotten HIS NAME!

They plot to cause My people to forget My name by their dreams which they tell, each one to his neighbor, even as their fathers have forgotten My name for Baal. (Jeremiah 23:27) 

Then I discovered that the name “Baal” was a Hebrew title for “Lord” or “Master”.  “Baal” was also the name given to the Canaanite sun god of Phoenicia, their supreme deity.  Other nations around Israel addressed their gods as Lord and Master.  “Baal” was one of the pagan gods that Israel worshipped during their rebellious years. Aren’t we, as true covenant believers, supposed to be different, set apart?

Yahweh is calling us to a closer relationship with Him.  He wants a covenant relationship with us; He wants the relationship of a husband is to a wife.  He wants us to know and use His name. 

And at that day, says Yahweh, you shall call Me, My husband; and you shall no more call Me, My Baal. For I will take away the names of the Baals out of her mouth; and they shall no more be remembered by their name.  Hosea 2:16-17

 Is Yahweh trying to gently correct you?

*Pronounced Yah (breathe in)- weh (Breath out)
