F A I T H F U L:- Funny how when I look up the word in the dictionary the definition that stood out was: ‘firm in adherence to promises...’ isn’t that our wonderful #God .
I mean, just look at the many times He’s been trustworthy, reliable, dependable He keeps His Covenant (Promise). Even when we’re faithless, God is ALWAYS faithful, ALWAYS. .
No matter how much the Israelites were disobedient God’s word to them was ‘When the people cry to the LORD for help against those who oppress them, he will send them a savior who will rescue them.’ Isaiah 19:20.
The more times I read about the Israelites being caught in this cycle of disobedience and every time God brings them a way out, then they do it again, ‘God fights for those He loves’ .
If we’ve been let down by people WE love, it hurts us, sometimes causes offence, but when we look at the incredible faithfulness of God, His love astounds me. .
Father God, when we doubt You still remain faithful to us! So unchanging, Ageless One, You truly are a Faithful God and we call to You and You hear us, and are true to Your Word, what an awesome wonder You are hallelujah! .
Rom 4:21’and being fully assured that what God had promised, He was able also to perform.’

If someone says, “I love God,” but hates a fellow believer, that person is a liar; for if we don’t love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see?
1 John 4:20 NLT
Thoughts on Today's Scripture
Our love for God can only be practised by loving our fellow believers. They are all the image of God, Christ lives in them, they are the representatives of God. It is impossible to claim to love God when we hate a fellow believer. Prayerfully develop the habit of loving the people you can see, and this will proof that you really love the Lord your God.
Thank You Lord for loving me so strongly. I pray this day to help me develop the habit of loving others, there is no place for hatred within my spirit in Jesus' name. Amen.

If we were to make a sermon all about us, what would it say, to make it true? Would it say we deserve God's mercy? No. Would it say we deserve the Kingdom of God? No way! WE are wicked and WE deserve HELL! And the moment we start acting as if God owed us ANYTHING other than hell, we are lying! What have we done but sin? What have we done but DESTROY a once righteous paradise? What have we done but NAIL GOD to a CROSS because of our LOVE of SIN?? dont you see? What good can we possibly do? We DESTROY lives in the name of "choice". We fight wars on a GLOBAL SCALE in the name of "self defense". We LITERALLY PARADE DOWN THE STREETS in celebration of our own CONDEMNATION TO GOD'S WRATH in the name of "PRIDE". What have we DONE but SIN?? what on EARTH can we be praised for? Absolutely nothing. WE nailed our King to a TREE. WE strut around like He is LOWER than we are. Guys, even DEMONS bow down to Jesus in fear. Have we seriously become less pleasing to God than demons? Oh in the name of Jesus FORGIVE US LORD! FORGIVE us for our lack of LOVE toward You! FORGIVE us for being WORST to You than DEMONS. FORGIVE us for taking Your WORDS and throwing them to the ground in the name of "SPARING FEELINGS"! Oh Lord the Creator of LIGHTENING and HURRICANES, DESTROY in us what you find DISGUSTING and fill the hole with your SPIRIT!! For only YOU can heal and only YOU are worthy of PRAISE AND GLORY!! Only You Lord. Only You.

As stated in my previous post, we are commanded to tithe. The question now is how do we tithe once we’ve left the church. Money given to a fallen church is furthering the their false doctrines and false day of worship and it is a sin. We should not be giving to a church. We should be doing what Yah commanded which is furthering the gospel message and giving to those in need. I have found a way to do both with a care package. This backpack was inspired by what I see everyday. My job requires that I drive around all day and when I do I see so many people in need who are asking for food and help. I pass them in my car all the time and I started thinking of ways I could truly help them. During my thinking I realized that these people are physically hungry and spiritually hungry. We are all spiritually hungry and the only one who can give us the bread of life is the Savior, John 6:35 KJV “And Yahushua said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.” So it would be great to give them food for their bodies and food for their souls. We are called to be fishers of men and plant seeds so that they will hopefully seek Yahuwah and find eternal salvation through the Son of Yah.
Matthew 4:18-19 says “And Yahushua, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Your tithe money can rightfully be used to further the gospel and help those in need. Making a care package is a great way to do both! Inside this backpack is a KJV Bible, a folder with biblical articles that give information on scripture and prophecy on end time events. All of this is to help the person get ready spiritually for the return of the Savior. End time events will start to unfold and unfold fast, we are responsible to get as many people ready as HUMANELY POSSIBLE. We are watchmen.

Tonight was a beautiful Akathist service!
There is no one greater to ask for prayers than God’s holy mother, because she is uniquely loved by her son and our God.
Have you ever thought the special bond Christ has with His holy mother? She raised him. She fed him, changed him, taught him to walk, talk, and took Jesus to church.
Mary is God’s mother and we revere her greatly.
We have seen in the Bible how Christ harkens to His mother’s wishes. At the wedding at Cana, Mary asked Jesus to work a miracle, even before the time of Jesus’ ministry, but he fulfilled His mother’s request.
St. Elizabeth attested to the Theotokos that “all generations would call you blessed.”
Tonight, we honor St. Elizabeth’s foretelling by supplications Mary and seeking her prayers so that the Lord may have mercy on us.
Here are the lyrics to the Akathist Hymn to the Mother of God:
“To thee the champion leader, do I offer thanks of victory. O Theotokos thou who has delivered me from terror, but as thou that has that power invincible. O Theotokos, thou alone can set me free. From all forms of danger free me and deliver me, that I may cry unto thee ‘Hail O bride without bridegroom!’”
"It is my prayer that you will realize that you cannot mix the two methods of salvation [faith + works], that you will accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and nothing else, for Jesus said you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. By the word 'Truth,' He meant Himself. John 8:36 says: So if the Son sets you free, you will be freed indeed. It is my prayer that not only have you been set free in Jesus Christ, but that it is your determined purpose that nothing, no human being, no philosophy will ever sidetrack you from this wonderful truth of salvation by grace alone which is made effective by faith in Jesus Christ." --E.H. "Jack" Sequiera, "The Gospel In Galatians, Chapter 5: You Foolish Galatians", Galatians 3:1-9.
There is Biblical precedence for using the tithe to feed the stranger, the widow, and the orphan. There is counsel in the Spirit of Prophecy to use the tithe for the gospel ministry. These are the two areas that exist today which are appropriate for tithe use, so one does not have to search beyond these for ways to use the tithe in this period of time which is so different from all and any before it. These two areas can be supported within the cadre of a home ekklesia group. The character, needs and possibilities of each group will determine how the tithe will be used, and even whether it will be best pooled for a common use or appropriated directly by each individual.
The tithe can be used to provide a Sabbath meal for the needy who have come to the service to hear the gospel, and thus serve both appropriate uses at one time. The tithe can be used to distribute Bibles and other appropriate Gospel literature. In fact, rather than a diminishment, we ought to see current developments as an opportunity. The personal use of the tithe in furthering the gospel dispels the false impression that giving money to someone else is enough and relieves us of the responsibility to act ourselves. Literature bought with the tithe money must be distributed, and that means that our own hands get involved. Providing meals for the poor who come to hear the gospel requires our own participation in serving them. But in all things, the basic principles of the tithe should be clear and uncompromised. Tithing in the Bible is extremely diverse. In sum, it may refer to tithes of spoils of war, of agricultural increase, and the increase of cattle. In various periods in appears to be voluntary, the subject of a vow, and a legislated obligation before Yahuwah. Its use varies from maintenance of a priest, providing for the celebration of festivals, providing for the Levites and the poor and needy, and for the maintenance of the temple. Its meaning varies from concern for the poor to the performance of a ritual function.Today, the tithe should contribute directly to the gospel ministry, the bringing of the message of the second coming of Yahushua to the world. But withholding tithe ⬇️
As many times as I have read the story of Jesus’ trial, I had never taken note that Pilate’s wife warned Pilate to leave Jesus alone because of a dream she had. God spoke to Joseph in a dream to keep Jesus safe from Herod. Now Pilate’s wife receives a message in a dream. 🤔 #biblestudy#jesussaves#godspeaks

"Sometimes I say to myself, “I will forget about him. I will not speak anymore in his name.” But when I say that, his message is like a fire burning inside me! It feels like it is burning deep in my bones! I get tired of trying to hold his message inside. And finally, I am not able to hold it in." Jeremiah 20:9
King James Version (KJV)
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Home churches are not simply an alternate form of worship for Yahuwah’s people in these last days of earth’s history. Rather, they are the only viable option available to all who would “worship in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24)
All organized denominations calculate their worship days by the modern Gregorian calendar – the calendar of Pope Gregory XIII, which itself is a revision of the pagan Julian calendar. As such, no organized church actually worships the Creator on His holy days which must be calculated by His appointed method of time-keeping: the luni-solar calendar.
In His great loving-kindness and mercy, Yahuwah forgives the ignorance that leads to worship on pagan holidays. “Truly, these times of ignorance [Yahuwah] overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent . . . .” (Acts 17:30, NKJV) With the restoration of knowledge of the true Sabbath, calculated by the original calendar of Creation, none need remain in ignorance any longer. All who have learned the truth now have the responsibility to obey the truth.
To continue to attend a church that has been presented with the truth and yet has not rendered obedience to it is to dishonor Yahuwah. For a church to be blessed with Yahuwah’s presence, all known light must be obeyed. A
single error, cherished and clung to in the face of advanced light, will deny that church of the divine presence.
All who truly love the Sabbath and its Creator will share the truth of the Biblical seventh-day Sabbath with those they love. If this truth is rejected, the person who has loyally and obediently embraced advancing light is left with no other option but to withdraw from the fellowship of a church with whom he or she no longer agrees. “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” (Amos 3:3, KJV)
The only organized body of believers recognized by Yahuwah is the Called Out Ones whose head is Yahushua and whose governing body is based in Heaven. ⬇️
Do you worship alone? Do you long for fellowship with like-minded believers? Are you missing a loving church family? Light and truth are ever advancing on those who would follow the Lamb. Thus, every Truth Seeker who is sincerely committed to following Yahuwah will, sooner or later, be faced with advanced light that is different than what he believed or practiced before. The adoption of this new truth will lead him separate and apart from those with whom he worshipped before if they, in turn, do not accept it.
A sincere-hearted person does not attend a church unless he believes the doctrines taught are Heaven-sanctioned truths. It then becomes a very easy thing to confuse loyalty to one’s church with loyalty to Yahuwah. A number of frequently quoted Bible texts appear to support the idea that the Church is the gateway to Heaven. Indeed, some churches teach that membership in their denomination is a requirement to gain entrance at the pearly gates.
One of the most widely quoted of such Bible texts is a statement made by Yahushua to Simon Peter:
And I say unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. (Matthew 16:18-19, KJV)
This single Bible verse has been used by the Roman Catholic Church to teach that salvation is exclusive to its communion for over 1,500 years.
Other Bible texts are also used to support belief in and strong loyalty to the “Church.” “And [Yahuwah] added to the church daily those who were being saved.” (Acts 2:47, NKJV)
In the King James version of Scripture, the word “church” has been used 80 times, all of which are found in the New Testament. The problem is, the definition of the English word “church” does not fit the definition of the original word. The word used is ĕkklēsia (Strong’s #1577 ) and means “a calling out” which is a far different meaning from the modern understanding of “church.”
The dictionary defines “church” as:
A particular body of Christians united under ⬇
When life gives you empty buckets...go to a WELL! John 4:7-17
7 When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” 8 (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.) 9 The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.[a]) 10 Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.” 11 “Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? 12 Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his livestock?” 13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
Hi friends, I have something important to share that’s on my heart tonight.
If you’re letting other people define your worth, I’m writing to YOU.
Cause I’ve been there. I’ve trusted the wrong people. I’ve put others before myself that were okay with walking all over me. I’ve been lied about plenty. I’ve had adults put me down. I’ve felt misunderstood and judged.
And the worst part?
I started to let it affect the way I saw myself.
I let the gossip and the lies hurt me. And that’s simply because THOSE THINGS HURT. Social media hurts- and people use it to bully behind a screen.
If you’re hurt over what other people think, say, or do then please understand that you are worth SO much more than that. You do not have to settle for any less than you deserve and that is kindness, love, and understanding.
Never let people who have not taken the time to learn your heart tear you down. You are precious and you are worth dying for. Love yourself and love other people sis. Simple as that. Focus on God and what he says because the rest doesn’t matter. When you accept what he says about you as truth, the hurtful words from people hold no power.
You got this, I’m rooting for ya and so is Jesus💪🏼
Question: Has the Bible prophesied that all recognized churches will apostatize before the Second Coming of Yahushua?
Answer: Yes, Isaiah 4:1 depicts the condition of the all recognized churches today: "and in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach." (Isaiah 4:1)
This prophecy tells us that at the end of time "seven" (7 symbolically means "all", "totality", "complete", i.e. 7 days of creation, 7 last plagues, 7 years of famine, etc.) or ALL, "women" (or churches - churches [ekklesia] are often symbolized as women in the Bible, i.e. Rev.12:1 vs. Rev. 17:3, etc) shall take hold of one man (they will claim to have a relationship with Yahushua - which ALL the "churches" profess today) saying, We will eat our own bread (They reject the true Bread of life - Yahushua and His teachings, see John 6:51, and prefer rather to "eat" their own false doctrines and traditions - see Isaiah 8:20), and wear our own apparel (they also reject the pure, white robe of Yahushua's righteousness and prefer their own system of works and self-righteousness - see Isaiah 61:10; Rev. 3:4, 5, 18) but they say: only let us be called by Thy name (despite of their rebellion, they want to be recognized, why?) to take away our reproach. They don't want their shame and disgrace to be seen due to the fact that they are teaching falsehood and are not part of Yahushua's ekklesia, but in reality they are one of the shameful, harlot daughters of Babylon!
Since, today all the churches are feeding their members a mixture of truth and error which removes Yahuwah from their midst, He has commanded us that whenever truth is mixed with error to “come out of her My people” (2 Corinthians 6:14-18). Please see next post for information on what the true Ekklesia of Yahuwah is and how to tithe and home church.
