At this point in my life, YAHUAH has me on a shelf. When I say that, I mean that he is preparing me to do what he needs me to do to further His Kingdom. Almost everyday I wake up I am excited because I know I will be starting my day by giving YAHUAH the honor, glory, worship, and praise that he deserves. And on the days that I am dragging, or oversleep, because, YES I am flawed, I have to tell myself its time to do what you need to do. YAHUAH is priority in my life and I seriously fear him, so I want so badly to obey him and make him pleased.
I continuously read my Bible because I don't want to miss a thing, but it wasn't until we started doing a Home Bible Study, you guys are welcome to come by the way, that I realized I was not always adhering to the teachings of YAHUSHA. I realized that I would prioritize the words of someone else in the Bible over the teachings of YAHUSHA. You see the teachings of YAHUSHA are in the first four books of the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Our home Bible Study started with The Gospel according to John and it has been eye opening. John 1:1 says: In the beginning was the Word=YAHUSHA and the Word=YAHUSHA was with YAHUAH and the Word=YAHUSHA was YAHUAH. Don't laugh at me y'all but I just realized that The Word is YAHUSHA! So all this time that I have been calling the entire Bible the Word of YAHUAH I have been mistaken. It's a Book of writings inspired by YAHUAH that includes the Word of YAHUAH: The teachings of YAHUSHA. You see the teachings of YAHUSHA should be priority. He was the one who willingly DIED for us so we can live an ETERNITY in PARADISE.
For example in Matthew 23:9 YAHUSHA says And do not call anyone on earth father for you have one Father, and He is in heaven. Now this is not talking about your earthly father and mother which he refers to in the commandments, but it is referring to giving those in churches or in this world that title. That title or any title that allows them to elevate themselves above the people is not what YAHUSHA wants. He came to serve not to be served. They don't have the clout to be called Father that's YAHUAH's title thank you. Annnnd if anyone in a church tries to force you to call them by a title....let them know they need to go read the teachings of YAHUSHA, because YAHUSHA did not find that amusing. 1 Timothy 1:2 says To Timothy, my true child in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace from YAHUAH the Father and YAHUSHA HA'MASHIACH our ADONAI. Now some may look at this verse and because it's in the Bible and Paul said it may get the impression that it would be ok for the individual that he called son to call him father. It is not OK, because again that would go against what YAHUSHA said. WE MUST FOLLOW THE TEACHINGS OF YAHUSHA...HE FULFILLED THE LAW! For example, In the Old Testament, old covenant they tithed, which is a tenth of the produce of the earth consecrated and set apart for special purposes (Easton's Bible Dictionary), and in the New Testament, the new covenant it says in 2 Corinthians 9:7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for YAHUAH loves a Cheerful giver. In Galatians 3;10 it says for all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, "Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them. WHAAAAT! So you telling me if I believe what a lot of these churches say when they say you must give your 10% to be BLESSED by YAHUAH, I will be cursed, because that means I would have to adhere to all of the law, which is a WHOLE LOT! OH MY I think I will LISTEN and DO what YAHUSHA says.
I have been seeking YAHUSHA with all of me, and the more I find him the more broken I have become. And by that I mean He is slowly peeling off all the layers of tradition and words of man that have lead me to seek the WRONG Alahiym. When I go out into this world now I can really see how the DEVIL has made it his WORLD. Some music boldly proclaims him as authority, People do the same and don't even realize it.I don't even wanna leave my house because I am so sensitive to the wickedness of this world. All I want to do is either SPEAK UP FOR MY SAVIOR or RUUUUUN! All that being said, YAHUAH is starting to build me back up with His Truth! It's Not Always Easy...But It Is Always Worth It!
