Ravenous Goats

Ravenous Goats
*
Mat.7:15-20 (15) “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. (16) You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? (17) Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. (18) A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. (19) Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. (20) Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
*
There are basically 3 mentality choices – 1] Sheep – That seek to keep Covenant, 2] Goat – That sets & follows his own righteousness code, 3] Wolf – That confirms, teaches and sets new levels of the ‘goat’ code.
*
Example of  Wolf (Wayward Leader) & Goat (Wayward Follower) – absurd circle reasoning; – From actual accounts (Both from Wolf Wayward ‘Christian’ Leaders) – “You’ll never get me to keep the Law” or another akin to it – “You (meaning ‘we’) can’t keep the Law” (Both speaking of just the Melkizedeq 10 Com’dts) BUT then a few thot’s later they every so sweetly quote –
*
Php.4:13 “I can do all things through Messiah (Christ) which strengtheneth me”. – ??? – Huh? – So which is it? Either we can or we can’t. The Bible says we can – Even further that we must! Dt.30:19, Jos.24:15, Mt.7:23, 1Jn.2:3-5, Act.15:19-21, etc.
*
The “God” of Love of the Bible also keeps Law & Covenant – That’s why we can trust Him! Go figure? The Melkizedeq Covenant includes the Melkizedeq 10 Com’dts which includes the Melkizedeq Name of our Melek – King; YHWH / Yahwah (Com’dt #3) – So; the 1 who instructs us to teach our children the ways of YHWH (Gen.18:19/26:5, etc.); Himself expects His children He accepts to be – A] Lawful or B] Lawless? Make your best choice. Mt.7:13-23
*
There have been preachers of the past that have correctly ID’d aspects of the situation;
*
“Christianity is decaying and going down into the gutter because the god of modern Christianity is not the God of the Bible.” – A. W. Tozer
*
Discernment is not simply differentiating between right and wrong; but includes discerning to know the difference between right and almost right. (Adapted from ~ C. H. Spurgeon)
*
‘Satan does his best work from the Pulpit’ – Original Author Unknown but you can Google search for over 600,000 results that agree with 2Cor.11:13-15
*
‘Goats’ taught by ‘Wolves’ never miss the chance to say “you can’t judge me”. Yet it remains that; ‘Corrective Instruction is seen as Condemning Judgement only by those that seek excuse to love their sin and continue their error.’-Original Author Unknown
*
Pro 12:1 Whoso loves instruction loves knowledge: but he that hates reproof is brutish.
(brutish H1198 ie stupid / foolish – brutish fits wolves quite nicely; eh?
*
Have you ever noticed that many if not all ‘ravenous wolves’ will try to hide the fact they are in fact ‘ravenous wolves’ by acting like ‘ravenous sheep’? They talk about, accuse & label those that have found the ‘Truth’ as if they are the 1’s that have been put upon and warning others of the same; when it is they that are doing the ‘put-upon’/ ‘putting-on’.
*
Those that have been raised on a farm will tell you that you need to have more sheep than goats. The sheep are more compliant and docile and the goats will follow them. But if you have more goats than sheep; the sheep will follow the goats which are much more unruly.
*
If you’re still on a 1/2 or No Covenant – God, LORD/Lord, Jesus, Christ, Levitical Mindset, No Sabbath and/or No Feastdays, Sunday, Christmas, Eastre, etc. On a 9 or less Com’dt program; doing violence to the Cov’t part you don’t keep while mixing in your own stuff (Christian, Messianic, Jewish or Rabbinic); supporting & bannering this as ‘The Truth’ –
*
There is no mistake YOU are a ‘goat’ follower, if you banner and teach this YOU are a lead ‘ravenous goat’ that at some early point have been ‘ravaged’ by wolves in sheep’s clothing behind the pulpit (2Cor.11:13-15) masquerading as Shepard of the ‘sheep’. And that like the ‘werewolves’ of sy-fy; inflict a bite on a man (sheep) that inoculates him or her against the Melkizedeq Covenant Truth that turns this man into a ‘were-goat’ that thinks he’s a ‘sheep’ yet lives, examples & defends against the ‘Truth’ – never looking for or at the facts.
*
Christian & Messianic Were-Goats think they follow and have a ‘personal relationship’ with Yahwah thru His Son Yahshua; (the  Melkizedeq High Priest; yet are not taught and do not know to call Him that) – They claim they are led or guided by His Set-Apart Spirit –  but; they neither do what the Messiah said or do as He did nor in that completely; which would be the ‘relationship’ of a willing obedient servant – Following the obedience of Yahshua the Son of YHWH (Jn.7:16/Mat.7:23). No plus / No minus Dt.4:2; yet adding in their own stuff.
*
Jewish and/or Rabbinic Were-Goats reject this ‘personal relationship’ with Yahwah thru His Son Yahshua; the  Melkizedeq High Priest (they too are not taught and do not know to call Him that – even tho they have Ps.110). – They claim they are led or guided by His Torah –  but; they neither do what the Torah says nor in that completely; which would be the willing obedience of a servant – Following the obedience of the Son (Jn.7:16/Mat.7:23). The Messiah they claim to look for. No plus / No minus Dt.4:2; yet adding in their own stuff.
*
The very Rom.10:2-3 program – to the letter! I encourage you to look this up and read it for yourself.
*
I’ve even had Sunday and Sabbath only Goat Pastors hop on the other side defending Levitical law much as a Messianic Goat following a Jewish or Rabbinic Goat would; when it suited their purpose. Of course they quickly back peddled realizing their new position.
*
They (the ‘Were-Goats’ parroting the teachings of the ‘Were-Wolves’) talk about bad & good fruit, coming from bad or good trees, but yet they never look at the limb they’re standing on (1Cor.10:12/2Cor.10:12). Bidding others to stand on that same faulty limb.
*
Jn.10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: (Ex.19:5-6)
*
Make no mistake – Only ‘Sheep’ will hear Yahshua’s Melkizedeq High Priest voice with the intent to Obey and Keep the Melkizedeq Covenant that includes the Melkizedeq Priesthood honoring YHWH’s Name, the 7th Day Sabbath, Passover, the Feastdays, Clean Meats for starters; Goats will Not! -BUT- Goat tornado theology ‘Belief Perseverance’ will demand they do even tho the evidence is they don’t.
*
They expound in sermons, teachings and prayers – ‘How much do you; Love, Trust, Believe, Obey, Submit to, Have Faith in ‘God’ (YHWH)?  They’ll tell you that you need to develop a ‘Love Affair’ (even in men’s only group) with ‘God’ (YHWH), – or that you need to have or cultivate a deep meaningful ‘relationship with Yah’s Son Yahshua Messiah (tho they never think to call Him that). But evidently that ‘relationship’ does not include Yahwah’s Torah, Instructions, Judgements, Commandments or Covenant.  – Yet;
*
This is an actual Sunday Mega Church statement that has just completed an aggressive building project – They need to pay for and are aggressively leaning on their patrons to ‘pony-up’ with extra tithes and “extravagant offerings” – Telling them that they are either a ‘giver or a taker’. What is so amazing is that this Sunday New Testament Church is jumping to the Old Testament to ‘prove’ their $ position. This has several insurmountable & glaring problems that include ignoring YHWH’s Commandments and Covenant 1st and foremost. Yet look at what they printed in their repeated relentless $ syllabus dossier;
*
“Read Lev.23:9-14 and John.20 – As you read about the Feast of Firstfruits think of the resurrection of  [Yahshua] (Jn.20) and look at the similarities between them.  You will see how perfectly [Yahshua] embodies the Feast of Firstfruits as well as all the Lev.23 appointed days as they are a blueprint of His death, resurrection and return.”
*
This is an absolute truth – that they would do well to actually follow. Notice; they said **all** – But they conveniently omit therefore ignore the 7th Day Sabbath of v:1-3.
*
They (All; as a Sunday/Sabbath only Protestant/Catholic populous) preach a ‘goat’ gospel or ‘goatspel’ that includes Christmas, Eastre, Valentines, Hellaween, ETC. – they write & sing ‘goat’ songs, they pray ‘goat’ prayers, they teach ‘goat’ lessons, they preach ‘goat’ sermons, they play ‘goat’ Church, making ‘goat’ converts, they’ll write their ‘goat’ books and make their ‘goat’ CD’s / DVD’s / Videos & ‘goat’ Movies – saying their ‘goat’ words pushing their ‘goat’ programs – on ‘goat’ websites – by ‘goat’ eMails and ‘goat’ articles in ‘goat’ magazines, protecting and teaching their  ‘goat’ views, having ‘goat’ retreats and ‘goat’ crusades and ‘goat’ symposiums and ‘goat’ out-reaches, in ‘goat’ encounters, in ‘goat’ Bible studies, they have their ‘goat’ pastors and ‘goat’ evangelists and ‘goat’ missionaries and ‘goat’ street preachers to ‘goat’ Mega-Church moguls/leaders (Senior ‘goat’ Pastors over not-so senior ‘goat’ pastors ie. wolves). Then if that wasn’t enough they have ‘goat’ teachers and ‘goat’ professors (ie. more wolves) teaching ‘goat’ students to disregard what is plainly there, learning how to be a better ‘goat’. To become the next generation of ‘goat’ preachers, teachers, presenters, evangelists, authors, writers, orators (ie. new wolves) at their amplified accelerated ‘goat’ cemeteries; I mean seminaries -But- They will not keep or teach All the Commandments or Keep ALL the Covenant; while they mix in their own ‘goat’ stuff. Rom.10:2-3 exactly!
*
Then we have to watch-out for Messianic Were-Goat Rabbi’d-Pastors running down and upholding some Levitical Mindset Were-Goat Rabbinic going down some Torah wayward, Covenant wayward, Levitical wayward Rabbi trail. Also; Rom.10:2-3 exactly!
*
After all; the Levitical Priesthood ‘Plan B’ concession was to save All Israel from total annihilation (including Aaron and the Levites Ex.32:10) for breaking the Covenant.
*
But most defend against the Melkizedeq Priesthood we were originally called to (Ex.19:5-6) and are now currently being called to (1Ptr.2:9/Rev.5:10).
*
These ‘ravenous were-goats’ are numerous with some multiplying into ‘ravenous were-wolves’ transforming to a ‘were-goat’ or looking like a ‘were-sheep’ that think like a ‘goat’ – mis-leading the flock and will continue to ‘ravage’ and ‘fleece’ the actual ‘sheep’ by every conceivable means & ‘wind of doctrine’, with same and new angles of the same and different lies, errors and ‘almost right’ truisms. We must ‘study’ 2Tm.2:15, ‘search’ Act.17:11 to find the ‘Truth’ Prv.25:2 and that fully-accounted-for Heb.5:12-14.

What Cause

What Cause
*
“What Causes Fights Among You?”
*
This question coming from Jms.4:1-3 was asked by the ‘stand-in’ spokes-person of a ministry that has consistently turned from their prime directive and #1 reason – Passion for Truth – All; not some of the Truth at a certain level. This ‘Passion for Truth’ – Whatever this individual cites whether to include or avoid; it remains that this is the #1 reason for conflict among so-called believers. That is the Passion or the lack thereof; for absolute Truth.
*
Most will just go along to get along and swallow down whatever is served up; then defend that as absolute Truth. Some have enough discernment to search out the matter (Prv.25:2/Act.17:11).
*
This conflict can be summed up by this statement – knowing that in a sea of sacred errors, 1/2 truths, twisted theologies, Levitical mindsets, Rabbinic imaginations, partial & out right religious lies, etc.; Truth is Treason.
*
Ergo; This True ‘Passion for [the] Truth’ is the #1 reason among reasons for the loss of favor, and that among friends, family, well being, relationships, acquaintances, associates, brotherhood, sisterhood, privileges, eligibility, standing, etc. IE Love among Believers.
*
It has been said that; Discernment is not simply differentiating between right and wrong; but includes discerning to know the difference between right and almost right. (Adapted from ~ C.H. Spurgeon)
*
It would be wonderful if all Bible truth was embraced by all Bible believers everywhere – But most are stubborn and tend to persist in their personal and group-think-mentality party-line ‘Belief Perseverance’ regardless of the facts.
*
On the one-hand; the Churches (both Sunday & Sabbath only) for the most part are hocking a broken Covenant – no Sabbath and/or no Feastdays basically 8 Com’dts on a Half-Truth pick-&-choose program that mix in their own stuff (Rom.10:2-3 to the letter) telling you “this is the way to life” ??? – The Bible says this is Death; (Mat.7:13-23 / 2Ths.2:10-12).
*
Or – on the other-hand; how is that any different from the Rabbis (Jews, Messianic, or?) outright changing or just merely tweaking Torah (Dt.4:2 – along with many other things) basically 9 Com’dts on a 3/4-Truth pick-&-choose program, mixing in their own stuff (Church and/or Rabbinic) which is ignoring Torah ie braking Covenant (Rom.10:2-3) – with the same result – The Bible says this is Death; (Mat.7:13-23 / 2Ths.2:10-12).
*
This is what we hold to and defend? This is what we placate to and consider mixing this in as a way to peace, harmony & unity? We are to be united in the Truth, by the Truth, Loving Yah’s Truth (Isa.58:1).
*
We are to be on a straight & narrow path – Neither turning to the right or the left – We must be aware that there is a Christian Church ditch on one side and a Rabbinic Jewish ditch on the other. Being aware that in Wilderness survival training as well as Biblically; There’s 2 reasons why people get and stay lost. 1] No Remembered Awareness, 2] Disregarding Indicated Direction
*
Searching for Truth requires Effort – Accepting Truth requires Humility – Teaching Truth requires Knowledge – Defending Truth requires Heart- Living Truth requires Dedication – Standing for Truth requires Courage – Standing ‘in’ Truth requires the Calm Resolve of Wisdom in the Torah of Yahweh.
*
There have been many things reinforced as true ‘Knowledge’ over and down thru the years. But I have learned that 3 things about truth; 1] Volume will never make a lie a Truth, 2] Repetition will never make a lie a Truth, 3] Ignoring the details of the Truth will never make you Honest.
*
That search has led to the truth of the Melkizedeq Covenants & the Melkizedeq Priesthood of which many of the Church, Messianic, Jewish, Rabbinic, etc. including this group that say they are Passionate for [the] Truth – Mix and/or Outright reject.
*
All of these groups say they have the Truth. Are Zealous (Passionate) for [the] Truth. Claim they have the Truth. Yet simply ignore or worse; actively defend against – Yahshua as the Melkizedeq High Priest. And; That ‘we’ are currently being called into that same Melkizedeq Priesthood (1Ptr.2:9/Rev.1:6).
*
Yah only has 1 Truth, 1 Salvation, 1 Kingdom – That’s the ‘rub’. We are to search for, find and agree to that Truth.
*
*
Shalom

The False Flag of ‘Love’

The False Flag of ‘Love’
*
Are we as Bible believers to Love? Without a doubt. Are we as Bible believers to Love the Truth? Again – Without a doubt. Is it Love to share and support the Truth? Again – Without a doubt. Is it Love to spread errors and lies defending against the Truth? Without a doubt; it is Not!
*
We have all been born into or fed a cocktail of Truth, errors & lies at all the religious outlets you could name. Most the Messianic have come out of the pre-packaged ‘cocktail’ of the Church. Only to be accosted by the pre-packaged ‘cocktail’ of the Jews & Rabbis.
*
We are to be on a straight & narrow path – Neither turning to the right or the left – We must be aware that there is a Christian Church ditch on one side and a Rabbinic Jewish ditch on the other
*
There is a difference between honestly believing error and defending error. Further; There is a difference between honestly believing lies and defending lies. We desperately need to understand the difference between supporting a belief (searching to agree with the Truth), and defending a belief (ignoring the Truth and the details thereof).
*
We are to Love the believing brothers & sisters. The term ‘believing brothers & sisters’ predisposes a common belief, an in-common belief. It is much easier to Love, have Love, demonstrate Love, share Love, reciprocate Love, etc. in that ‘in-common’ setting. For; we are to love the Truth, in Truth.
*
And that’s the rub. Many want their confabulation mix of imagination and truisms to be the standard of ‘Love’
*
The ‘Beatles’ gave us ‘all ya need is love’ – But the ‘Beatles’ don’t believe the Bible. Some avoid conflict at all costs; saying this is ‘Love’. But this type of ‘Hearts & Flowers’ approach is Not ‘Love’ or biblically ‘Loving’. It is the ‘go along to get along’ affinity but it is Not ‘Love’. And – this is not reasonable. For in the sea of sacred errors and religious lies (in which we find ourselves); Truth is Treason!
*
Prv.27:17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
*
When Truth comes against Error and Lies – sparks can & many times are gonna fly! And if you don’t come against Error and Lies; you are Not doing your job! Only Truth will ‘sharpeneth the countenance’; if your ‘friend’ will not hear you – you have no ‘friend’ and no choice but to follow the Mat.18 guideline.
*
Biblical ‘Love’ must follow the Bible. Led by Yahwah and Yahshua. The same Yahwah that is Love. Yet this same Yahwah is also Truth, Law, Instruction, Reward (that is not always positive), consequence, compassion, vengeance, etc. – But is always ‘Loving’ and fair enough to tell you the reward or consequence Before you do it ‘and’ to have made a way out; even after you’ve already done it. ‘If’ you’ll repent.
*
This ‘way out’ includes the Truth;
*
Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity (or inequity or lawlessness).
*
2Ths.2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause [Yah] shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
*
Rev.22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
*
Do either of these verses mirror our pathetic reasoning of ‘Hearts & Flowers’ Love? That in the interest of harmony, unity or Biblical ‘Love’ we should validate error or a direct lie or those that say such things; to get a pass?
*
You are the 1 that will also not get the pass!
*
Ezk.3:17 Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. 18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at your hand.
*
Of course the 1’s that want to protect and continue their error will do so calling others many names under many labels – You have your truth; we have ours – As if YHWH has given ‘Truth’ options; there is only 1 Truth. They will call you many things directly and by innuendos – Rude code for Direct, Arrogant code for Confident, Divisive code for Telling the Truth, Condescending code for Skillful use of Better Knowledge (Oh; apologies all around and I’m just so sorry for that 1 ??? ), etc. Going so far as to blaspheme Yah’s name or call you mean spirited and unregenerated or some other rush in error to judgement and other off-base besmirching of the facts. Giving the guilty a pass while turning you out.
*
There are several from all groups (Christian, Messianic, Jewish, etc.) that will use ‘tactics’. They do not like what was said but neither can they refute it. If you have your facts, so that your Answers are ‘bullet proof’; They are not gonna like the answers they will honestly have to give. So; what to do? Ah ha, Redirection ie Change the question. They’ll come at you from all angles, side or back, basically saying ‘I don’t like what you said Or the way you said it’.
*
I follow;
*
Isa 58:1 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.
*
And recommend you do too.
*
Sin includes ‘missing the mark’! It would also include upholding & validating the Levitical Priesthood ‘Mind-Set’, ignoring (missing) all the evidence of the return of the original Melkizedeq Priesthood. To allow this error is Not Love.
*

Knowledge

Knowledge
*
Knowledge (or the lack thereof) takes many forms. The only true ‘Knowledge’ about YHWH is found in and verified by His Word. Yet ‘Knowledge’ (including ‘word of’) or that which masquerades as ‘Knowledge’ (mis-information) can be deified, spiritualized and communicated ie transferred in several ways.
*
There are many forms of ‘Communicated Knowledge’ on many subjects. When it comes to things Bible, ‘Knowledge’ can be communicated by others which should always be verified that it is in fact authentic Bible ‘Knowledge’ (Act.17:11).
*
Then there is revealed ‘Knowledge’ which is an awareness communicated by Yah. Revealed ‘Knowledge’ can then be communicated to others (then by others) that can just swallow it ‘face-value’ hook, line & sinker; that would be much wiser to verify a revealed word communicated; by Yah’s Word.
*
So to biblically we have ‘Communicated Knowledge’ that is different from ‘Revealed Knowledge’ yet both must be verified by Yah’s Word. ‘Revealed Knowledge’ must be fully-accounted-for and verified by Yah’s revealed Word otherwise it is the imagination of mis-information that too can be re-produced, repeated and spread to others ie ‘Communicated’.
*
1Jn 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of [Yah]: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
*
This is the biblical mandate to test everything; even YHWH’s Ruach haKodesh Set-Apart Spirit – For any spirit from Yah will not contradict Yah’s Word found in Scripture (ie the ‘Bible’). If it is not the same then there is a conflict, any word at variance with Yah’s Word must be rejected and held as suspect.
*
There have been many things reinforced as true ‘Knowledge’ over and down thru the years. But I have learned that 3 things about truth; 1] Volume will never make a lie a Truth, 2] Repetition will never make a lie a Truth, 3] Ignoring the details of the Truth will never make you Honest.
*
So with this information (by Bible) is Sunday, Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s, Hellaween, etc. – Revealed or Communicated Knowledge? Is it true and correct? Is it what Yahwah commanded (Lev.23)? Is it what Yahshua followed? Is it what the disciples followed (including Paul)? No! It is Not!
*
The unvarnished Truth is Sunday, Christmas, Easter, Valentine’s, Hellaween, etc. is Communicated Knowledge. It has been mercilessly communicated and repeatedly verified as Truth -BUT- It is Not! (Act.15:19-21)
*
Yet the Jews (Rabbis, etc.) have their own Torahesq merciless communication of their ad-lib decisions and imaginations being repeatedly verified as Yah’s Truth -BUT- It is Not!
*
Regardless of the geno-populous – In a sea of sacred errors and religious lies – Truth is Treason! AND Corrective Instruction is seen as Condemning Judgement only by those that seek excuse to love their sin & continue their error.
*
It is amazingly bewildering how we as humans can say some few things that are true, yet not follow it – Case in point;
*
‘Discernment is not simply differentiating between right and wrong; but includes discerning to know the difference between right and almost right’. (Adapted from ~ C.H. Spurgeon – Sunday Preacher)
*
This is Satan’s best & favorite tool – Almost Truth – 95% Truth – Truisms
*
In a recent Sunday-keeper Bible study I frequent for the expressed purpose of interjecting what they would not otherwise consider; The question was asked, “What is the consequence of dis-obedience?” This 1 young man said it best but was past right over and ignored. He said, “you won’t grow”. I drew their attention back to his answer and asked; Why should YHWH give you any more than you are not willing to walk in? There were no answers or feed back. Sad but typical.
*
So to bring it home; How will you ever see Yah’s Melkizedeq Priesthood Kingdom, when you won’t keep the Melkizedeq values (Sabbath, Feastdays, Clean Meats, etc. speaking to Sunday and Sabbath only keepers) -OR- you that flat refuse to see because of your Levitical Mindset (speaking to the Rabbinic Jews – then the Messianic [and others] that validate & follow them) 2Ths.2:10-12
*
Wisdom is based on the foundation of fully-accounted-for correct ‘Knowledge’ – That which is based on mis-information is Not Wisdom. It can masquerade as Wisdom – It can also be laughable but it is always to be pitied.
*
Choose Wisely

1, 2, 3’s A, B, C’s

1, 2, 3’s A, B, C’s
*
Heb 5:12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of [Yah]; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13 For every one that uses milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
*
1St off – No one can exercise your senses for you. BUT if you don’t exercise your senses sufficiently, you will never skilfully use let alone fully understand the ‘strong meat’ of the Word.
*
This statement was made referencing a Melkizedeq context (v:10). This is the ‘strong meat’ of Yah’s Word – That most are missing and will continue to miss – being on and satisfied to be on an ‘arrested development’ milk-only program.
*
I cannot tell you how may times I have been (even as an adult) in a peer or an adult ‘Sunday’ School, Sabbath Class, Bible Study, Q&A Midrash, etc. where a middle aged to senior person proceeds a botch to proclaim a ‘Jesus loves me … Everybody ought to know’ recital exercise in the elementary. This is pathetic!
*
This however is understandable, for even tho the Bible says we are to ‘study’ (2Tm.2:15), Most don’t; they rely on others up to the Church itself (and Assembly) to spoon-feed them their theology or tell me what I need to know. These different groups will happily do so – BUT – to a certain level of that same ‘arrested development’.
*
I will use a math example; when we were small we learned (or at least were taught) the A, B, C’s of 1, 2, 3’s. The same 1, 2, 3’s of simple math, basic math, multiplication, division, fractions, Geometry, Algebra and Calculus. These 1, 2, 3’s are the same foundational basics of Calculus. But how are we to ever understand Calculus if we still fumble with 1, 2, 3’s – or the ‘milk’ of math.
*
How are we ever to progress if most of us are still on an ‘A, B, C – See Spot Run’ program and that reinforced & validated by others – especially those that are looked-to as ‘teachers’ (Jms.3:1).
*
Example – Someone will say and make an absolutely true statement – “we are to honor the Name Yahwah”. But then in the next breath in the next sentence make a flip to say and validate the exact opposite – “But we can say God, Lord, Jesus – he knows what we mean – he knows our heart”. And that’s the problem, He does know our heart – that it’s desperately wicked above all things (Jer.17:9). That we’ll justify, reason and complement ourselves right into a hole (1Cor.10:12/2Cor.10:12).
*
Some will exert the love, kindness, gentleness run-down to validate the baby-thot in I doh wanna–land. As if love, kindness & gentleness are found in or displayed by validating an un-Truth. (The ‘Red Guy’ would ‘love’ that – 2Cor.11:13-15). Do as you will, but I will follow Yah’s example – His absolute Love is found in His absolute Truth (Jos.24:15).
*
Some will try and defend their indefensible position, others will gather up all their marbles and go home. Both are defensive postures that are not honest. The 1st is aggressive the latter is passive; yet both equally will not to hear & are not honest.
*
I realize that when speaking to others or preparing an article aimed at the ‘John Q’ populous that by default nonetheless have been ‘church taught’ it may even be a good idea to identify correct names with names they know – Example Yahwah (Jehovah), YHWH (LORD), Elohim (God), Yahshua (Jesus), Messiah (Christ). – BUT – the point is to ‘table’ the correct Names – with the explanation a couple of times, if or when needed.
*
How will they ever know and at that know to grow unless they are told? We must go on to Maturity – How will we ever go on to Maturity if we keep refusing and at that repeatedly validating that which we will not walk in? This is (after all) the Heb.5 Melkizedeq way of Yahshua our Melkizedeq High Priest (1Ptr.2:9).
***
And This Great Point in by Teddy Wilson
*
“…both “The Sabbath & The Name” are indeed “hallowed” as you can read in Ex.20:11 & Mat.6:9. The definition of this word ‘hollowed’ Heb. #6942 is – to be, make, pronounce, or observe as clean … ceremonially or morally. According to YAHSHUA’S words in the verse above, the Name has something to do with us being pronounced clean for YAHWEH’S ceremonies as well as our minds being fit! Folks, you may go on thinking you are doing Yah some justice when ministering in improper titles, but according to these definitions you are not preparing anyone to be ceremonially ready for the return of Messiah. The Sabbaths & The Names are what connects us to the Covenant! …”
***
Both this ‘Covenant’ by Ex.20 and ‘Prayer’ spoken at Mat.6:9 by Yahshua is Melkizedeq.

 

Hotel California

Hotel California
*
*
Right off the top – I too am not thrilled by or enamored with the lyrics of ‘Hotel California’. It is with some trepidation that I post this on TWR – I do so for there are important points most will miss and are missing. 1St I will let the author speak in his own words;
*
“Don Henley, band member who wrote most of the song [says], “it’s basically a song about the dark underbelly of the American dream and about excess in America, which is something we knew a lot about.”
*
When Don Henley a founding member of the Eagles wrote the lyrics to ‘Hotel California’; “…It wasn’t long that rumors began circulating about the song’s mystical meaning…”
*
Some will say this involves the same Satanic spirit of Aleister Crowley & Anton LaVey – Handsdown without a doubt. The 1st point is; If its not under Yah’s Authorship, Authority & Jurisdiction its ALL Satan’s territory – Every bit of it. Even what we think of or hold to as being religious – but yet is unbiblical. We just don’t generally think of it in that way; granted some lean harder on it than others without a doubt; but be that as it may-
*
When the honest think about this objectively ‘Hotel California’ starts out about an innocent starting out innocently, lead to make choices only later realizing they were wrong – Is this not true with many things in this life? (Titus 1:15) – *News Flash* Satan will tell the truth! However in a way that suites his purposes that does not reveal the whole agenda.
*
Then there is that awareness inkling in the lyric “this could be Heaven or this could be Hell” – This is a neutral! Neither Heavenly or Satanic.
*
Then the realization hits – “I was running for the door, I had to find the passage back to the place I was before” – How many of us would have given anything for a do-over? Even yet?
*
Then the lyrics get darker “you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave…”, etc.
*
Hands-down Sin and Satan will take you further than you ever wanted to go – to a place you never wanted to be – you’ll stay way longer than you wanted to stay and you’ll pay much more than you ever wanted to pay – Excuse me but isn’t that exactly or at least the by-product of what this song captures?
*
Getting trapped by Satan; making it appear there is no way out – This is after all exactly what Satan does and seeks to do AND this is biblical as well (2Cor.11:13-15/1Ptr.5:8). Call them minions of Satan if you like BUT they are putting it out there plainly telling you the Truth! – This is Overt or ‘Open’
*
This is like a picture; we see the positive image – It is like a picture in this respect; it is the negative – Its still the true picture but in a ghostly gray shadow reverse where all the factors & values cannot be clearly seen or distinguished.
*
On the one-hand; the Churches for the most part are hocking a broken Covenant – no Sabbath and/or no Feastdays basically 8 Com’dts on a Half-Truth pick-&-choose program (Rom.10:2-3 to the letter) telling you “this is the way to life” ??? – with the same result – Death; the same ‘no way out’ part (Mat.7:13-23 / 2Ths.2:10-12). This is Covert or ‘Hidden’
*
Or – on the other-hand; how is that any different from the Rabbis (or Messianic, or?) outright changing or just merely tweaking Torah (Dt.4:2 – along with many other things) which is ignoring Torah ie braking Covenant (Rom.10:2-3) – with the same result – Death; the same ‘no way out’ part (Mat.7:13-23 / 2Ths.2:10-12) – This too is Covert or ‘Hidden’.
*
At least the Satan people are honest enough to put it out there up-front and more than that, I personally think Satan is effervescently proud; and that enough to mock you to your face then belly laugh about it – that it never enters your mind to even realize or know it.
*
The Churches and the Rabbis (including anti-Missionaries) say they are the truth and have the truth that leads to life. This song says in so-many words that; Satan leads to a no way out death.
*
Which 1 is being deceptive? Hmmm?
*
I’ll openly admit that the Satan-folk pick&choose as to what, when & where they’ll be honest and to what level as to not tip their hand, but at no time will the Church, Rabbi, etc. folk be honest to that level – Oh they’ll swear up&down convinced that the are – But they are blind guides nonetheless even to what they themselves do (1Tm.1:7).
*
In the not-so distant past, there have been those rare Pastors that have actually said in ‘Sunday’ sermon from the podium, that; ‘Satan does his best work from behind the pulpit’ – This is exactly what we see at 2Cor.11:13-15. You ought to read it for yourself.
*
In actuality – to the chagrin of some and the surprize of most even if you’re not religious; ‘Hotel California’ is a more truthful sermon involving innocence & consequence. This ‘song’ captures more of the negative truth of the situation in 6mins than most hour and-a-1/2 sermons. It does however leave out the positive truth of the ever-ready redemption of Yahshua Messiah for those that will repent to ‘hear & obey’.
*
So – Its not about anyone’s rush to judgement or jump to conclusion or anyone’s holier than thou 1 sided perspective is it?
*
We are to judge with a ‘Righteous’ judgement – John 7:24
*
Even the celebrated Jewish sage Mamonides aka ‘Ram-Bam’ is to have once said; ‘Truth must be accepted wherever it is found’.
*
Now – Go back; listen to this no instruments amazing acapella version and factor in what Paul Harvey would have said is; ‘the rest of the story’.
*
PS –
This group ‘Cubanos Acapella’ do other less volatile selections as well 😉
