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)

Don’t Be Afraid to Have Faith

…and this can happen! Just step aside and let HIM drive.

Please get your tissues , you will need them.

As you do not know the way of the wind, as the bones in the pregnant woman’s womb, even so you do not know the works of YHWH who makes all. (Ecc 11:5)

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 

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”

And What is His Son’s Name? (Surely You Know…)

In the King James translation, the Messiah’s name is mentioned early in Matthew, along with the meaning of His name:

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. (Matthew 1:21) 

Although the Greek translators may have made a valiant attempt to translate the Messiah’s name with all the power to forgive sins, the name “Jesus” cannot communicate fully the awesome and sanctified position that He holds.  And because our Messiah was of Jewish descent, we know He did not have a Greek name.

We are told in Exodus that Yahweh would send a messenger to the children of Israel in the wilderness.  That messenger is our Messiah and we are told that He will carry Yahweh’s name.

Behold, I am about to send an Angel (malak = messenger) before you, to guard you in the way, and to bring you to the place which I have prepared.  Be on guard before Him, and listen to His voice. Do not be rebellious against Him, for He will not forgive your transgressions; for My name is in Him. (Exodus 23:20-22)

Later, as the Messiah walked the earth in the flesh, the Savior himself says that He comes in His Father’s name:

I have come in the name of My Father, and you do not receive Me. If another comes in his own name, you will receive that one. John 5:43

So, to fulfill scriptural mandates, the name of our Messiah must convey the meaning “He will save us from our sins” and the name of the Father must be IN the His name.

The shortened form of “Yahweh” is Strong’s 3050, pronounced “Yah”, and is used 45 times in the Old Testament and like Strong’s 3068 (Yahweh), is mostly translated “LORD.”  (Every time you sing or shout “HalleluYAH!” you are praising His name!)

In the original Aramaic texts of the Brit Hadashah (New Testament), the name of the Savior is not Jesus but Y’shua, which is a shortened form of Y’hoshua which means “YHWH is salvation.” A Hebrew equivalent would be Strong’s 3442, pronounced yah-shoo-ah, which translates “Yah will save” or  “he will save”—the exact meaning of the Savior’s name in the book of Matthew. 

It is a logical conclusion that the true name of our Messiah is YAH-Shua, for it is only by that name YAH and YAHWEH that He had authority and power to forgive sins. Salvation comes through YAH-shua, but only with the awesome, and set-apart name of Yahweh can there be any salvation.

Who has gone up to Heaven, and come down? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in His garments? Who has made all the ends of the earth to rise?

What is His name, and what is His Son’s name? Surely you know….
