A Bald Eagle, a black cat, and a Nation


This may be one of the most interesting blogs the Father has ever given me. Every now and then I notice things. Yes, every now and then something seems to pop out. Friday a bald eagle caught my eye on the Virginia Pilot, and not only mine but thousands on social media.

“Matt Seniuk, a physics teacher at Norview High School, saw the crowd on Monticello on his way to coach football at Blair Middle. He thought there may have been a fight or an accident, then glimpsed the big bird.

“It was surreal. You’re right in the middle of downtown, almost,” Seniuk said. Stranger still: the bird seemed unperturbed by the onlookers. (Think trump)

“It was going to enjoy its meal as long as nobody was bothering it.”

People held their cameras and videoed this eagle, as traffic was at a standstill. The bald eagle seemed rather out of place in front of Advance Auto Parts at 26th Street and Monticello Avenue. I believe the Kingdom of Yahweh is getting ready to advance and become stronger—each auto/ministry more one. This bird with a five to seven-foot wing span had captured its prey and was devouring a rather large black cat. Both the black cat, the number 26 and the name Monticello stood out to me.

“The numerical value of the Divine and Most Holy Name: YHWH (Yahweh: yohd, hey, vav, hey) is twenty-six. The Torah was given on Mt. Sinai in the 26th generation of mankind. (There were 10 generations from Adam to Noach, 10 generations from Noach to Abraham, and another 6 generations from Abraham to Moses.) Means oneness (YHWH is One [Dt. 6:4]). For more on Hebrew, numbers click Grace in Torah Numbers

I want you to think about the Torah being given in the 26th generation and also about two mountains—actually, four, when we throw America into the mix.

Our great and awesome God, Yahweh cannot be contained. Heaven is His throne and the earth is His footstool. He places earthly kings on thrones and He removes them. He creates light and darkness—good and evil and He is merciful—slow to anger and abounding in love. America is where I was born and raised, and I have watched it drastically decline in my lifetime. It went from one nation under God to one nation over God– having many gods. Right now we have a president in America that is more hated than any other leader before him. He has no regard for man-pleasing or the fear of man. He eats his prey for dinner like that eagle, whether it be the NFL, Hollywood, the food industry, big pharma, and crooked politicians, which will continue to crumble before our Messiah returns.

Yes, Trump has certain qualities that may seem boisterous, over the top, but I believe Abba is using him. Regardless if we dislike him or respect him, all should be in prayer for him. We are commanded too. I believe he is a key to Babylon falling. This beastly system is being attacked under his administration. However, there is a swamp going on inside Our Father’s House too. Many have arrived on the scene to teach and help clean up the mess. They appear as doctors, nurses, and EMS drivers coming to resuscitate and breathe new life into those who have been blinded by the prosperity message filled with itching ear words of lawlessness and ease. Some coming to help are like the prophets of old who had to give tough messages at times to kings who had robbed the poor to build their own kingdoms. We see it in His house, but like that eagle, Abba is devouring it. There is a young Joash spirit coming.

“Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird. “For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality.

And then there is verse four and five, “I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues; for her sins have piled up as high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities.” Revelations 18:1-5.

We are in a preoperational period, but one day . . . yes, one day “The earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of Yahweh, As the waters cover the sea.” Habakkuk 2:14 NASB.

I see multiple Christian empires coming into the humbleness of His Torah. I believe they will fall and disperse and become smaller pockets of light.

As out of place as that eagle seemed in front of the auto store, both our nation and The Church is preparing for an overhaul.  That eagle could have landed anywhere but it landed in Virginia in front of signs ringing freedom! Freedom in His house. Virginia was the first of the thirteen colonies established here in America. Joseph’s son Ephraim was the 13th tribe. The eagle, our national symbol, is sitting at 26th and Monticello. Our Father’s Torah is too.

“Thomas Jefferson’s plantation home was given two names. Monticello was just one name used for two mountains, the other was Hermitage—one was ‘high’ and one was ‘low.’ High Mountain was referred to by Jefferson as Monticello, which he acquired in 1777.”  John Quincy Adams also had a plantation home called Hermitage and eerily enough, they both died on the fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, which Jefferson had written. What does Hermitage stand for?

“Although today’s meaning is usually a place where a hermit lives in seclusion from the world, hermitage was more commonly used to mean a settlement where a person or a group of people lived religiously, in seclusion. Originally, the first hermitages were located in natural caves, temple ruins, and even simple huts in forests and deserts.” Wiki.

Think about a tribal people who have a form of government, His Torah—His Declaration—His high mountain. We are forming communities like Hermitage. An assembly of Believers that stand together through thick and thin– governed by Apostles and leaders who ensure His Word stands as the Authority? It’s happening and swiftly.

There were two mountains spoken of in the Bible.

“It shall come about, when the LORD your God brings you into the land where you are entering to possess it, that you shall place the blessing on Mount Gerizim and the curse on Mount Ebal.” Deuteronomy 11:29 NASB.

They say, the mountain with blessings spoken over it is plush—green—covered in vegetation and life, but what about the mountain that had the curses spoken over it? Not one thing grew. It was as bald as that eagle eating a dead cat. Stay with me.

When you cross the Jordan, these shall stand on Mount Gerizim to bless the people: Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, Joseph, and Benjamin. “For the curse, these shall stand on Mount Ebal: Reuben, Gad, Asher, Zebulun, Dan, and Naphtali. Deuteronomy 27:11-13.

Six of the twelve tribes stood on one mountain and spoke curses, and the other six spoke blessings. The choice is ours. As I pictured six Jewish men standing on a mountain and yelling out these radical blessings at the top of their lungs, I was captured by the hidden message. Isn’t Abba saying come to the mountain of the Lord Adonai?

“Now it will come about that In the last days The mountain of the house of the LORD Will be established as the chief of the mountains, And will be raised above the hills; And all the nations will stream to it.” Isaiah 2:2.

The Blessing shouters:

Our first name is Simeon and it means “Hearing and Hearing with acceptance.

When the Torah/law was given the people said, “All that the LORD has spoken we will do!” Exodus 19:8.

And again they proclaimed the same message. “Go near and hear all that the LORD our God will say, and speak to us all that the LORD our God will speak to you, and we will hear and do it.’ Deuteronomy 5:7.

The second one out of the six was Levi which means joined.

The third is JudahLet God be praised!

Our next name is Issachar which means, “He Is Wages. There Is Recompense.”

When we hear and we obey, we receive a great reward. YES! There is recompense in keeping His Torah. Why would you throw away gold, wisdom, restoration of your soul and great reward? You wouldn’t. Shout with me and these men from the mountain of blessings.

The last names on the mountain of blessing are Joseph and Benjamin— Joseph means May Yahweh add. May He increase. Oh, and He is! The lost sheep of the House of Israel are coming home in droves. They are returning to the sweetness of His Law/ Torah. His instructions for a blessed life. His Calendar and His holy days.

Benjamin means Son of my Right Hand.  Yeshua is at the “right” hand of the Father making intercession for us. “But from now on THE SON OF MAN WILL BE SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND of the power OF GOD.” Luke 22:69 NASB.

I found the multiple signs in the window of this business very interesting Notice from the photos below that the words FREE in all caps appears behind the bald eagle.

FREE battery testing. How are our hearts? His Torah, He said would no longer be written in stone but on our hearts.

FOR THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL
AFTER THOSE DAYS, SAYS THE LORD:
I WILL PUT MY LAWS INTO THEIR MINDS,
AND I WILL WRITE THEM ON THEIR HEARTS.
AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD,
AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE.

“AND THEY SHALL NOT TEACH EVERYONE HIS FELLOW CITIZEN,
AND EVERYONE HIS BROTHER, SAYING, ‘KNOW THE LORD,’
FOR ALL WILL KNOW ME,
FROM THE LEAST TO THE GREATEST OF THEM.” Hebrews 8:10-11.

FREE wiper blade installation for the windshield. How’s our vision? Can we see or do we need eye salve like those in the church Yeshua mentioned?

            I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see. Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent.” Revelations 3:18-19.

The last sign read FREE alternator/starter testing.

What is the definition of an alternator?

Electricity. A generator of alternating current.

Do we have the Holy Spirit/Ruach HaKodesh along with our truth?

He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. “His winnowing fork is in His hand to thoroughly clear His threshing floor, and to gather the wheat into His barn; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” Luke 3:16-17.

This whole scene seems to say something to me about freedom. He who the Son sets free is free indeed. The Son is the Word (Torah) Made Flesh. By keeping His Word and His Commandments we gain life and freedom.

An eagle eating a black cat may have a deeper meaning.  A black cat has many crazy symbols due to superstition, but it also is the logo for a group of people called anarchist.

anarchy

“Since the 1880s, the color black has been associated with anarchism. The black cat, in an alert, fighting stance, was later adopted as an anarchist symbol.” Wikipedia.

What is anarchy?

“Anarchy 1.    A state of disorder due to the absence or no recognition of authority. Synonyms: lawlessness.” Lawlessness is Torahlessness.

“Because lawlessness will multiply, the love of many will grow cold.” Matthew 24:12.

There are a people who He will call His own and a people He will protect and bring into His wedding Chamber. He knows them. They are sealed. They have kept His commandments. They uphold His Torah. I want to be one of those eagles, don’t you?

The Father himself used the eagle to describe His power and to enforce His covenant. “Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob and tell the sons of Israel: ‘You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings, and brought you to Myself. ‘Now then, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be My own possession among all the peoples, for all the earth is Mine; and you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ Exodus 3:6.

May the truth devour everything false like leaven that permeates dough. “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three pecks of flour until it was all leavened.” Matthew 13:33.

May we soar like the eagles we were called to be and may we mount up and sound the alarm.

If this message has blessed you please share with others.

Shalom.

A Foreshadowing of the Year 5778


Year 5778

A Prophetic word for this new season.

 

Yoash–Now when Athaliah (The daughter of Jezebel) the mother of Ahaziah saw that her son was dead, she rose and destroyed all the royal offspring of the house of Judah. But Jehoshabeath the king’s daughter took Joash the son of Ahaziah, and stole him from among the king’s sons who were being put to death, and placed him and his nurse in the bedroom. So Jehoshabeath, the daughter of King Jehoram, the wife of Jehoiada the priest (for she was the sister of Ahaziah), hid him from Athaliah so that she would not put him to death. He was hidden with them in the house of God six years while Athaliah reigned over the land.” 2nd Chronicles 22:10-12 NASB.

We are entering a new season during this time of Sukkot. I feel like the Body of Yeshua is getting ready to come into a greater measure of anointing and power. Although the world is growing darker, the Light in Goshen was shining brightly and caused many to flee with Israel and inherit the promises of the Covenant. This is the same thing that will be happening in the world.

The Body that has been divided and bickering over calendars and doctrines of demons and traditions of men, will mature in this season. There will be a shaking up and a pouring out. I see a move of the Ruach Wind blowing into the Christian churches. Things that have been idols, such as men who have been placed up higher than Yahweh and His Son, will bow in this new season. Many will humble themselves or they will fall. Men who have built for themselves kingdoms here and have taken money from the poor and the widows that Abba commanded not to take from, will collapse, and their ministries will be stripped and laid bare for the world to see. The eyes of His people are going to open wider and more knowledge will come forth but from a more humble spirit. Multiple pockets of light will be established all over the world as more and more assemblies and house churches will gather together in humbleness and in the spirit of reference, humility, with grace, joy and with great zeal. The aroma of one coming forth out of the desert will fill our hearts.

“Who is this coming out of the wilderness Like pillars of smoke, Perfumed with myrrh and frankincense, With all the merchant’s fragrant powders?” Solomon 3:6 NKJ.

In the past few seasons, there has been a remnant He has hidden like Joash who was hidden for six years. We are in the sixth year prophetically speaking 5778. King Joash was six/ seven years old when he ascended the throne of Judea and was crowned. This young man was taught by his uncle who was the pious High Priest who feared God’s house. Joash means the “Fire of YAHWEH.

These hidden, like Joash, are going to be power houses, and they are going to be stripped of man-pleasing. Some of them have been through great affliction as Job and as David who ran from Saul and hid in caves and disguised himself and lived with the enemy. Not only men, but women as the Deborah’s are arising and Jael’s who will stake the head of the serpent and judge with a righteous judgement bringing forth more truth and power. Many of these handmaidens will be getting credit for battle victories due to many men asleep at this time and out on ships like Dan and Asher worried about wealth and the things of the world. Those who have been faithful will enter the Christian churches with wisdom and love and the ability to teach a people His truths through the power of the Ruach HaKodesh.

These men and women will be as Joseph after the chains and prison sentence. They no longer will say “I have dreamed a dream, but they will give All glory to Him who is the Giver of dreams. They will give All Glory to Yah (G-d). They will have no regard for man and the thoughts of men but will war in the Spirit over the House of Yahweh to bring in the youth. Many have not gotten to the promise land but have run in fear and have missed the grapes due to man pleasing and concerns of offending men instead of worrying about offending Abba.

The grapes are huge in this season for the harvest is plentiful. There is a new generation Abba has been preparing and has equipped in the midst of the most wicked perversions, material wealth, kingdoms of men, violence, pornography, divorce, drug epidemics , child abuse, and every unclean bird– these will have such a distaste for the unclean that they will make the most pious of us seem lacking in purity. They will touch no unclean thing and they will adorn their sons in Tzitzits and teach them to fear Yahweh with the holiest fear. Their daughters will prophesy as Philips daughters did in the Book of Acts for the Holy Ruach Spirit must come forth with the truth. These will be giant slayers and men will be convicted of their sins in their presence. The light of Torah will smother the pagan roots and the harlot. The harlot will be exposed and there will be a slaying. The NFL, Hollywood, the music industry Facebook, the whole system will begin to crumble and the land will cry out. Babylon has fallen–fallen is Babylon the Great! Yes, there will still be evil and great darkness, but we will see the Power of Yah tearing down a beast system.

Begin to look for the prophets in this hour. They are going to come forth whether you believe in them or not. They will carry the Spirit of Yeshua and His Truth. The Torah Teachers and the prophets will stand and fire will come forth out of their mouths and devour their enemies. For no longer will the harlot be able to fight His people as in the past, due to the amount of fire in their bellies. This is revival fire. In their grasp to define truth as something other than Torah/ law, they will be mocked.

(Psalm) 119:142 “Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is truth.

Malachi 2:6 The law of truth was in his mouth. . .”

John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy Word is truth.”

Jesus/Yeshua was the Word made flesh. He never broke one of His Fathers commandments and He even said “If you love me keep my commandments.”

How blessed are those whose way is blameless, Who walk in the law of the LORD.” Psalm 119:1.

2nd Peter 2:2 “And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.”

Many who have spoken evil of His law (Torah) will begin to weep over it. They will begin to meditate as David did.

O how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day. Your commandments make me wiser than my enemies, For they are ever mine. Psalm 119:97-99 NASB.

This spirit of Athaliah has been destroying Abba’s house, but He is sending out his Joash/ Yoash’s servants and they will begin to rebuild the House. The Body of Yeshua will arise with great unity and power in the midst of the nay-sayers (Yes, they will still exist). Make sure to look for men like Joash’s uncle to arise in the Jewish community. These men will be willing to teach us their Torah and they will begin to see the Messiah. Yes, all the tribes will see Him. “”And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory.” Matthew 24:30 NASB..

“When Athaliah heard the noise of the people running and praising the king, she came into the house of the LORD to the people. She looked, and behold, the king was standing by his pillar at the entrance, and the captains and the trumpeters were beside the king. And all the people of the land rejoiced and blew trumpets, the singers with their musical instruments leading the praise.

Then Athaliah tore her clothes and said, “Treason! Treason!” Jehoiada the priest brought out the captains of hundreds who were appointed over the army and said to them, “Bring her out between the ranks; and whoever follows her, put to death with the sword.” For the priest said, “Let her not be put to death in the house of the LORD.” So they seized her, and when she arrived at the entrance of the Horse Gate of the king’s house, they put her to death there.

 

 

Reforms Carried Out

 

Then Jehoiada made a covenant between himself and all the people and the king, that they would be the LORD’S people. And all the people went to the house of Baal and tore it down, and they broke in pieces his altars and his images, and killed Mattan the priest of Baal before the altars. Moreover, Jehoiada placed the offices of the house of the LORD under the authority of the Levitical priests, whom David had assigned over the house of the LORD, to offer the burnt offerings of the LORD, as it is written in the law of Moses—with rejoicing and singing according to the order of David. He stationed the gatekeepers of the house of the LORD, so that no one would enter who was in any way unclean. He took the captains of hundreds, the nobles, the rulers of the people and all the people of the land, and brought the king down from the house of the LORD, and came through the upper gate to the king’s house. And they placed the king upon the royal throne. So all of the people of the land rejoiced and the city was quiet. For they had put Athaliah to death with the sword.” 2nd Chronicles 23:12- NASB.

The harlot needs to be put to death with the sword. The sword of the Spirit is coming forth and unlike Joash, who after his uncle the High Priest died, turned away from Yahweh and fell into sin, these will stand firm as their High Priest can never die because He has defeated death and the grave. HalleluYah! Praise you Yeshua the Anointed Messiah for getting the keys!

Also during this season, I see a great need in the Body for the Apostles to come forth and the prophets and for the assemblies and Torah Observant fellowships to begin to incorporate a fivefold type ministry or a ministry that has positions in place to delegate and be held accountable to. No more “yes” men.

It is written in Deuteronomy 16:18, “Appoint judges and officials for each of your tribes in every town the Lord your God is giving you, and they shall judge the people fairly.” Kings—priest—judges—scribes—and prophets.

 

Elders/ Rabbi’s/ Teachers/ prophets–Navi (as in plural) will be established to teach the Body a more balanced diet. Prophets will work hand and hand with Apostles and Shepherds to hold many accountable and direct the leaders in the sin and disorder in Abba’s house. These men/women will have Nathan’s and Jeremiah’s in place who they will go to for counsel.

“And God has appointed these in the church: first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues.” 1st Corinthians 12:28.

If you are in leadership and you do not have these in place, it is time to step up and begin to be obedient in this area. No more one man show. If you are not anointing the sick and praying—its time to call for the Elders to lay hands on the sick in body and soul.

The Messianic/ Christian assemblies will see more youth involved in music/ ministry and they will begin to have the holiest tongues and will write music unto the Father as David did. The Worshippers will come forth and make a sound and the sound will be unlike anything ever before. Get ready for a change in the Body. Get ready for a newness and a different appearance as The Joash spirit goes forth and tears down the Harlot system. This is not a season to fight for the spotlight or to be in fear of the Jewishness of our faith. This is not a season to try and gain knowledge without love and a Spirit of humility. This is the season for a marinade.

If you are still a part of a Sunday morning assembly that has not incorporated His Feast days be prepared for it to enter your assembly and for pastors to begin to change even the day they worship on and begin to uphold the 4th Commandment to Keep the Sabbath holy Kadosh and set apart. This is the longest day of rest ever—1,000 years when He will tabernacle among us.

This new season will be one like never before. Stay connected to the Body. If you have been content watching live stream/ t.v, now is the time to find a local gathering even if it has to be in your home.

Warning: If you are in a ministry that is always exposing darkness—run to the light. Showcase the light. Bring the brightest lamp to shine for the darkness to see and remember this warning. “Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light.” Ephesians 5:11-13. Instead meditate on Philippians 4:8. Whatsoever things are true, lovely, just, and of a GOOD report, think on these things. Bring forth these things! I pray you and your family are safe and entering into this season of our joy.

Shalom and blessing to you and yours during the Feast of Sukkot!

Queens, Drones, Workers & Assassins


I sat outside the other day and a bug was on its back in an empty flower pot on my patio. It was very peculiar looking, and I was intrigued to study it. I snapped a photo and went researching. This is what I found.

“Assassin bug

This bug has over 7,000 species.

The genus Apiomerus, which contains species known commonly as bee assassins or bee killers, is among the largest genera in family Reduviidae. Species of Apiomerus frequent flowering plants, where they coat their legs with sticky plant resins and wait for their prey.

The sticky resins allow the assassins to readily capture other insects, particularly bees.” assassin bug | insect | Britannica.com

Particularly bees.

Have you been captured by a sticky assassin? They are among us, and they try and devour the bees and kill them. Who are the Bees? Well, I am thinking of multiple Bees in the Body, but let’s start with Deborah—the mighty judge over Israel, who was a prophetess who sat under her palm tree. Her name is identical to the Hebrew word for bee, and it means to speak or pronounce.

Bees are the workers, teachers/Elders, leaders, prophets and those who help supply the honey of His Torah, but they constantly are battling against the ass-assins. The assassins capture their prey with stickiness. Their legs/walk are a trap.

Bees bring us honey, but they also sting. Sometimes the truth hurts. Sometimes we need to be stung. Sometimes the sting helps us return to Him. Sometimes the honey does.

If you have ever looked at a bee colony it is fascinating. They all work together, and their work is perfection at its best. However, lately, they have been diminishing. The pesticides we spray filled with toxins, disease, and our phone towers are not helping them, and to top it all off, they have to deal with assassins.

We have plenty of bees working in Abba’s Kingdom, but sometimes they have to deal with Korah and his associates. Korah wanted to be honored. He wanted to have the number one place of authority.

“Now Korah the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, with Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took action, and they rose up before Moses, together with some of the sons of Israel, two hundred and fifty leaders of the congregation, chosen in the assembly, men of renown. “They assembled together against Moses and Aaron, and said to them, You have gone far enough, for all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and the LORD is in their midst; so why do you exalt yourselves above the assembly of the LORD?” Numbers 16:3 NASB.

Most people in ministry wouldn’t do something like this if they knew the outcome was going to be the earth swallowing them up. They certainly wouldn’t do it if they knew that those involved would also be swallowed up. These men witnessed Aaron’s son combust before their eyes.

How embarrassing to proclaim oneself smarter than Moses and Aaron. No, scratch that. How atrocious it would be to think that their staff would bloom bigger and better than Aarons! That they were handpicked over them. That they could do it better. Knew more than Yahweh himself. As if He made a mistake choosing them.

The sticky legs of the assassins were trying to kill the bees and the King Bee, Moshe–a man who HaShem spoke to face to face and not in dark speeches. A man whose face shown like a bright light. A man who fasted forty days and nights, not once, not twice, but three times. A man that cried out for their very lives. “”But now, if You will, forgive their sin– and if not, please blot me out from Your book which You have written!” Exodus 32:32.

How many of us would cry out for the ones we see in leadership right now who are slandering and mocking His Torah–mocking His chosen people–His Rabbis, Messianic leaders, T.O leaders, Pastors and Evangelist? How many would cry out and say “Blot me out of your book?” OUCH! I was reading today and came across this verse.

“My eyes shed streams of water, because they do not keep Your law/ Torah.” Psalm 119:136 NASB.

Are we shedding tears or spewing ignorance?

Korah and these men already had a position, but it wasn’t getting enough attention. They wanted to be in the light. They became louder. They began to slander. They said, “We are all holy too!” What can we learn from them? A tiny bee?

The bee colony has three main types–a Queen, drones, and workers. The Queen is the only bee that gives life. She lays around 2,500 eggs a day. Towards the end of her life she will give birth to another queen. She will release a scent and communicate to the whole colony that her time is ending and another will take her place as Queen.

Drones are male bees, and they don’t do any work. Their only job is to fertilize the queen and then they die. Their reproductive organs are torn off as the Queen flies off with them. The drones are told to leave the colony, and they are obedient. Those who did not mate starve to death. Buzz about Bees has a great article. Here’s a few facts from their blog.

  • “Their lives are very brief (- is that unfortunate?).
  • They are only reared when it suits the queen honey bee (- is that exploitation?).
  • They die straight after mating! (- is it worth the sacrifice?).
  • Not all of them even get to mate! (- is that fair?).
  • At the end of the summer, or when the going gets tough, they’re the first to be kicked out of the colony, so as not to drain resources (- is that disrespectful?). “

 

For more info The Drone Bee:

Ninety-nine percent of the bees are worker bees. These are all female. These Ninety-nine have different jobs to do, and they know what those are. They do not try and usurp. Guard bees are like watchmen. They protect the hive. House bees clean the cells. Wax bees repair the older cells, and they build new ones. Then we have nurse bees who care for the young and the weaker. Foragers are older and more experienced and they spend most of their time away collecting pollen and nectar. Everyone knows his or her position. The watchmen does not try to be the nurse. The house bees do not try to be the wax bees, and none of them try to be the Queen. All 99% work in a hierarchy of leadership.

Yeshua left the 99 to go after the one lost sheep.

I found the next quote interesting.

“Everything about them (bees) seems curious and beautiful; their waxen cells, their manner of gathering honey and storing it up, their neatness and order, all are admirable. They are perfectly harmless when left to themselves; but if they are attacked, they fly around the person who disturbs them, in great numbers, and sometimes sting him very severely.” Topical Bible: Bee.

For some time now, my husband and I have been praying for Christian congregations we were involved in ministry at.  A few years ago, we felt led to sit down and unlearn and relearn many things. We are still learning. All parties involved were hurt—confused, but time went on. Occasionally, we check their websites to see what’s going on. We were both raised at a large congregation that has radio and television networks. Last week they announced that a Rabbi was coming this week (Sunday) to teach on the Feast of Sukkot or Tabernacles. We were ecstatic! Another one of these assemblies has a guest speaker teaching ‘His Feast’ as well. They are seeing Jesus/ Yeshua in the Feast and getting on His Calendar. Still another, I was given a dream about recently, confirming that they too are seeing His Feast and Torah. Praise HIM! If you don’t know what Torah means, its instructions to live a blessed life. Read Psalms 119.

When we begin to see His truths and know our places in the Body, we can all make beautiful honey together.

I believe the ones who have been studying His Torah from the beginning may be the Queens we can learn from. A people who awake and thank Hashem for their very breaths. A chosen people who know more at the age of twelve or thirteen than most of us think we do. I believe Rabbis and His chosen Teachers will enter our Christian assemblies and they will teach us His Feast and their Torah in a way all our digging could never do it justice, and we will weep over what we have made the Gospel. Yes, all of Christianity will weep, and then His people will see Their Messiah Yeshua. They will say, “How did Yeshua/Jesus get in our Torah? And the two shall become one. Humbleness will come. It’s happening before our eyes.

I also believe that some in leadership, both in Christianity and the Torah Observant fellowships, will fall in the coming season if they do not allow others to come in and help them unlearn and relearn. We all must search out a matter and listen to others in authority, and see if what they are saying may be truths we haven’t seen. We cannot get to the point where we think we know it all and can’t be taught anything. Raising my hand.

Proverbs 16:18 says, “A haughty spirit comes before a fall.”

If pride, prosperity, and bickering over things, and especially discrimination against His chosen ones continues through ignorance (Synagogue of satan—etc.,) I believe we will see some big names in Christianity and Christian Torah ministries’ fall while others are being lifted up. I believe, eventually, they too will have complete humbleness. Abba is patient and He is merciful, and He is not a man that He should lie. “The LORD sustains all who fall And raises up all who are bowed down.” Psalms 145:14. We must remember that His people are praying for Ephraim daily. That’s us guys.

Thus says Yahweh of Armies: “In those days, ten men will take hold, out of all the languages of the nations, they will take hold of the skirt (Corners—Tzitzit) of him who is a Jew, saying, ‘We will go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.'” Zechariah 8:23 WEB.

Doug Addison recently posted an interesting dream and blog post concerning this titled, “What Does this Tornado Dream Mean for us Now?”  Here is a small portion.

“In the dream, I was in a room with many leaders, a tornado was approaching fast and there was no time to react. The tornado entered the room and everything began to rotate clock-wise. I saw a chair floating by as I, too, was being picked up and floating as well. I was about to grab hold of the chair when the Lord spoke audibly to everyone in the room, “Many people have died because they have held onto their chair.”

Let’s stop fighting for our chairs and being assassins. Let’s start knowing our place in the Body. There is a whole list of gifts in Corinthians 12 and 13. Let’s find ours and begin doing it with humility and respect for those around us.

Paul said,

“And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is esteemed, all the members rejoice with it.

And you are a body of Messiah, and members individually.

And Elohim has appointed these in the assembly: firstly emissaries (Apostles), secondly prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, ministrations, kinds of tongues.

Are all emissaries? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Are all workers of miracles?

Do all have gifts of healings? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret?” 1st Corinthians 12:27-29 ISR.

The greatest gift of all is love. This gift supersedes all we think we know. It transforms. It heals. It gives its very life for the King, just as the drone died for the Queen.

If this blog has blessed you, please share with others.

Shalom.

The Cost of a Garment


A Seasoned Coat

I had a dream last week right after Passover. In my dream, there were two men with their backs to me. They each had on a Jewish prayer shawl with the tzitzit or tassels that are specially knotted representing the 613 Torah commandments. This is the very shawl Jesus/Yeshua was wearing when the lady with the issue of blood crawled through the crowd and touched the hem of his garment. She touched the Word in more ways than one. This was a commandment from Deuteronomy and Numbers. Let’s look at that real quick before we go farther.
“The Lord said to Moses, “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘Throughout the generations to come you are to make tassels on the corners of your garments, with a blue cord on each tassel. You will have these tassels to look at and so you will remember all the commands of the Lord, that you may obey them and not prostitute yourselves by chasing after the lusts of your own hearts and eyes.” Leviticus 15:37-39 NIV.
The first man’s shawl in my dream was older, darker as in aged—seasoned, and I remember this man had his head bowed (humble). The man behind him was larger and dressed in a sparkling new prayer shawl. It was bright and white and unseasoned. I walked behind this man in my dream with the bright white one and yanked off his prayer shawl.
When I woke up I said, Father, what are you trying to tell me? A friend called that day and explained that this was an exposing of the men who wear the tallit but do not know what it represents. The coat has a deeper significance. Jesus/Yeshua said that if we love him we will keep his commandments. “For this is the love of God that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome.” 1st John 5:3 NASB.
This seems simple enough but I never really knew the amount of grace I was under before my eyes were opened to many passages in my Bible.
A few days later I saw a man wearing this type of garment who is in leadership. He was preaching an Easter service on a Sunday morning. This man does a lot of good works for the poor, the homeless, and the addicts, but I wondered if he was aware that among those tassel threads hanging down is a thread that says, “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.” Exodus 20:8 KJB. This was never changed to Sun-day. The words from Paul about “one man considers a day more sacred” has nothing to do with a day that is our wedding day– A day the Father blessed and set apart. A day our Father says is a sign to us. Why? Because that day of rest represents our rest forever in the Kingdom. It’s the millennial reign. Men who wear that type of shawl with those holy marriage vows hanging off keep the Sabbath. They obey those tassels—even after Yeshua’s death and resurrection they obeyed the commandments.

 

Malachi 3:6I the LORD do not change.”
Those who cloak their head in humbleness under that tent like shawl keep the Sabbath and the Feast. Our next Feast is written about in the book of Acts Chapter two. They were in one accord for a feast that was mandatory. They didn’t just decide to get together in unity in an upper room and wait for no reason. When Jesus/Yeshua told them to wait they knew what that meant. They were counting the omer.
“Even unto the day after the seventh sabbath shall you number fifty days; and you shall offer a new grain offering unto the LORD” Leviticus 23:16 KJV.
“Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.” He said they were His Feast, not a Jewish Feast but even if they were a “Jewish” Feast weren’t we engrafted into a Hebraic faith before Constantine and others polluted it?
Wasn’t Paul and all the others in the New portion of the book still keeping all the Feast which were and are all about Jesus/Yeshua. Paul said, “Therefore let us keep the feast” 1st Corinthians 5:8 NASB.
Many times we wear things that are not congruent with who we are yet. I know many times in my past I wanted to own one of those shawls but I really did not know what that meant. I just thought it was “cool.” I wasn’t aware that the very Word of Yah—the Torah was wrapped in this garment. The dead are wrapped in it. It is often translated as wings in the King James and yes, even a tent. This is the shadow of His Wings because it is golden instructions to keep us holy and safe. Protection.
We often wear many things that misrepresent who we are.
One of the items we wear is “titles.”
Have you ever had an experience with someone you didn’t know personally that was unfavorable? A person who wears the same titles as you? Titles like Nurse—teacher—Pastor—Rabbi–Political titles and so forth. Yes, “those people.” Ever met someone on social media and had some dialogue that went Due South? Perhaps you had a fluctuating opinion over a passage of the Bible, an elected official, a political topic, or something else and then found out that the person you are conversing with is the author and producer of? The director and CEO of? Your mother-n-law’s cousin? Your Rabbi’s son? Your Pastors niece? Oh, yes this happened to me last week–not once, not twice,–well you get the picture.
After my second rebuttal with the first person, I went to their Facebook page and found out they were friends with someone I really admire and also they held an important title. I sort of thought hmm, perhaps I shouldn’t have said what I said. Although I tried to be graceful in my words, my belief was clearly different on the matter due to my life experiences and passages I had studied. I heard the Father say, “Would you make a difference in my Word for a person of man’s esteem?
Do you treat people differently?”
Ouch.
And that’s when conviction set in. “No, I don’t think so Father but you know my heart.”
“The heart is crooked above all, and desperately sick – who shall know it?” Jeremiah 17:9 ISR.
If I would have known what title the person had would I have treated them differently? Have you ever been guilty of this? I think if we were honest we all would say yes. Do we treat people differently that we know our friends or family would not possibly approve of their views?
Paul walked into an area littered with men, in the midst of the Areopagus, these men were Greek scholars who put on airs at times. They stood conversing and ogling in his direction but he with great gusto said, “Men of Athens: I see how very religious you are in every way!  For as I was walking around, looking at your shrines, I even found an altar which had been inscribed, ‘To An Unknown God.’ So, the one whom you are already worshipping in ignorance-this is the one I proclaim to you.
“The God who made the universe and everything in it, and who is Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in man-made temples; nor is he served by human hands, as if he lacked something; since it is he himself who gives life and breath and everything to everyone.” Acts 17:22-25 CJB.
All of us are guilty of ignorance but once we are presented with truth we can do better.
Lately, I have started noticing how men and women interact in a large group. How people talk to leaders. How people ignore certain ones. We often dismiss others instead of digging in and looking at conflicting opinions with a heart that says, “Abba show me anything I am missing that you may have shown them?” We also refrain from correcting those who are in leadership. This same Paul had to correct Peter in front of many. That’s tough. He couldn’t just do it in private.  “But when Peter came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he was clearly in the wrong.” Galatians 2:11 TLV.
We also often get hung up in the knowledge and miss the Spirit. Clothing the naked—feeding the poor—visiting the sick, the widow–those in prison and so forth. Jesus/Yeshua said “I never knew you,” to a group who had not done these deeds.
Broken people don’t care if we have our Feast calendar exactly right or pronounce the Name correctly. Half the people in the streets would not even know who Yahushua or Yahweh or even Yeshua is.
So in order for Abba to make His point clearer, this happened again and again, and I even watched it happen to my husband. I think his phone conversation may have influenced his clothing. Perhaps his level of nervousness was effected at meeting someone of importance. Only his situation was the opposite. Yes, they were important but not packaged as he was expecting.
I’m going to end with an example.
Once while working at a restaurant I watched a couple come into the lounge area. The man had on overhauls and his wife weighed about 90 pounds and was wearing his gigantic t-shirt and sweat pants. My co-workers took off to the back laughing saying, “Bonnie that’s all YOU!” I pleasantly greeted them and the man asked me if he could see our wine list. He then proceeded to order a bottle even I, an employee with a key could not fetch for them. I had to get the manager to unlock the case and climb up to a hidden spot. After getting their wine they said we just will be having some soup and salad and the wine. They drank the bottle and ate the small meal and then gave me a hundred dollar tip. From that night on, they always requested me as their server and shared much of their life with me. I was blessed. If you would have seen them on the street you might have wondered if they could afford to buy a soda pop. However, after my fellow co-workers found out the tip they had left me, now when this couple came in they tried to knock me down to get to them. Ah, the heart, who can know it? Yahweh searches the hearts. He goes to and fro throughout the earth. He knows you and me. He knows our hearts.
“My brothers, do not hold the belief of our Master יהושע Messiah, the Master of esteem, with partiality. For if there should come into your meeting a man with gold rings, in a splendid robe, and there should also come in a poor one dressed in rags, and you pay attention to the one wearing the splendid robe and say to him, “You sit here in a good place,” and say to the poor one, “You stand there,” or, “Sit here by my feet,” have you not discriminated among yourselves, and become judges with wicked thoughts? Listen, my beloved brothers: Has Elohim not chosen the poor of this world, rich in belief and heirs of the reign which He promised to those who love Him? “James 2:1-4 ISR.
Two men in my dream wore SPLENDID ROBES, one was seasoned and one was new. Awe, Abba cleanse our garments and our hearts to be transparent and led by YOU no matter what it cost us for our life to look like that garment. “And it was given unto her that she should array herself in fine linen, bright and pure: for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.” Revelation 19:8 KJV.

Neck-lace of the Kingdom


The whole world seems to have its eye on a giraffe named April. I heard about this pregnant mother about two weeks ago while at a family birthday party. I instantly felt Abba Father was trying to tell me something prophetically.

Yes, at the beginning of this month the whole world watched this mother named “April” waiting patiently for her to give birth, and then something incredible happened. A giraffe in Denver that no one knew was even pregnant gave birth spontaneously and hidden from view at 3 a.m. The mother was old and also on birth control, but this did not stop her from giving birth. Dobby’s mother Kipele was born at the Denver Zoo in August 1993, and is the oldest of the Zoo’s giraffes. His father is named Dikembe. (1) Like Sarah, she laughs as millions watch New York’s mother pacing in labor, and while no one is looking or expecting, her young calf comes forth and is named “Dobby.” We will get to this mother in a moment and her baby, as I believe these two mothers represent possibly America and Israel—Ruth and Orpah but let’s see how this unfolds.

Back to New York and April.

The name April means “to open” as in bud—flower. This always reminds me of Aaron and his rod and how we are to bear fruit—good fruit.

“Now on the next day Moses went into the tent of the testimony; and behold, the rod of Aaron for the house of Levi had sprouted and put forth buds and produced blossoms, and it bore ripe almonds.” Numbers 17:8 NASB.

This year Pesach or Passover falls on April 10th, Birth pains. . .

This month is the Hebrew month of Adar (Feb-March.) It is the 6th month of the Hebrew civil year and the 12th month of the religious year. (2) Author and teacher, K. Gallagher compared this month to a very pregnant woman about to give birth as next month Aviv/Nisan commemorates the children of Israel’s birth from the dark womb of Egypt. She explains how they passed through the opening of blood and water as YHWH birthed them (and us) as a nation. Thus, though this is a joyful month full of anticipation, it comes with the tight pressing of birth pangs.” (3)

Ah, birth pains—who here is birthing something? Pushing! Perhaps you’re moving and pacing back and forth like April? Possibly Our Abba Father is doing something different in your life. Labor and waiting on a birth are always difficult. One look at April’s huge belly holding a calf weighing up to 150 pounds looks miserable, but Abba always brings joy out of our labor.

This month Adar is said to be a time of laughter and great joy. Sarah gave birth to the Patriarch Isaac (Yitzchak) during this time and his name means “laughter,” but who wouldn’t laugh at a ninety- year- old woman giving birth or the oldest giraffe in the zoo?

I believe this prophetic message may have something to do with a Kingdom and a King. Jesus/Yeshua said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; you will grieve, but your grief will be turned into joy. “Whenever a woman is in labor she has pain, because her hour has come; but when she gives birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish because of the joy that a child has been born into the world. “Therefore you too have grief now; but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you.” John 16:20-22 NASB.

One interesting fact pointed out to me was that a giraffe’s neck has the same amount of vertebrae as humans.

  1. Gallagher explains below.

“Nearly all mammals, including humans, have SEVEN vertebrae in their necks. (4) The only difference is that an animal such as the giraffe has very large vertebra whereas a mouse has very small vertebra. Since the neck is representative of whether one’s demeanor is humble or prideful, the natural phenomenon of the neck having SEVEN vertebrae can be compared to the SEVEN Spirits of God or their counterfeit, the SEVEN wicked spirits. (5)

When one is truly filled with the Spirit of God, she will exhibit the attributes of wisdom, understanding, counsel, power, knowledge, and reverence. On the contrary, a stiff-necked person is ruled by their nephesh (flesh), which is characterized by the SEVEN abominations of Proverbs 6:16-19. The first wicked attribute is pride or haughty eyes. Pride always precedes a fall and is the antithesis to the humility of Biblical wisdom. (6)

Thus, the SEVEN vertebrae in a human’s neck teach a spiritual lesson. A pliable, submissive neck is yoked to the Creator’s easy and light sevens of the Bible. This person will eagerly accept the yoke of the Kingdom of Heaven. The neck with its SEVEN vertebrae will bend and bow to the will of the King, which is demonstrated in the seven days of creation, the seven Spirits of God, the seven Feasts of Adonai, and even the seven days it takes to consecrate the Holy Temple. These SEVENs show one how the Holy Spirit works to change and promote growth in the life of the Believer for their good as a new creation in Messiah Yeshua (Jesus).

It feels like we are getting closer and closer to the Messianic Kingdom. The number 7 is completion, but the number 8 is fatness and joy unspeakable. Those who are filled with the Spirit and have a humble pliable neck will bow down before their King and enter the gates of the city, the New Jerusalem. I found this next picture too prophetic to let slip through unnoticed. (7)

giraffe 1

When we study the Bible carefully we find that the number seven is tied to everything. It is a number like no other and a day of rest, a wedding day for a Bride, but eight, eight is over and beyond what we can think or imagine.

“Eight in Hebrew “Shemoni [f.], shemonah [m.] Literally to “make fat”. New beginnings, not just complete (like 7), but satiated. Becoming “fat” is having more than enough. Full to overflowing. Moves from natural to supernatural.” Grace in Torah (8).

The father of the baby to be born in New York is named Oliver as in “Olive.” The olive leaf and the olive tree have always been a symbol of Israel and their national emblem is olive leaves draped around the Menorah light. Yeshua is the main branch of that light. The leaves represent peace and the word olive means oil. The word Gethsemane means oil press. This is the place where Jesus/Yeshua was crushed and pressed to the point of sweating blood. I think this giraffe may represent Israel and the birth of something new for the nation and for a people. The word “mashach,” from the same root word “Messiah” means to smear with oil and anoint. (9)

“Strong’s #4886: mashach (pronounced maw-shakh’). a primitive root; to rub with oil, i.e. to anoint; by implication, to consecrate; also to paint:–anoint, paint.”

Remember those seven vertebrae’s? Yes, a giraffe’s neck is what captures our attention. It is the thing that stands out when we see one and no wonder —the neck of a giraffe weighs about 600 pounds.

“Giraffes use their long necks to graze on leaves higher than other herbivores can reach and spot predators before they get close. Their necks tend to average about 6 feet long, and supporting such a length requires powerful muscles and big bones.” (10)

Not only are their necks six feet long but their legs are as well, and the weight of their neck again is about 600 pounds. Seems to be a lot of “6’s” here in these details so I wanted to define that number in the Hebrew.

SIX, “Shesh [f.], sheeshah [m.] Image, man, beast, flesh, sacrifice, intimacy, finished work, knowledge, sacrificial love, number of man and beast, antichrist, idol, and eternal judgment. Six usually refers to the works of man, but ideally, represents sacrificial love and intimate knowledge with the Creator. When the latter is forsaken, only idolatry and flesh remain. We are ALWAYS either projecting the image of God or the image of the beast (flesh), which is represented by the number six.” (11)

We are said to be approaching the 6,000th year. “The Talmud tells us that this world, as we know it, will last for six thousand years, with the seventh millennium ushering in the cosmic Shabbat, the Messianic Era. Six days a week we work, and on the Shabbat, we rest and enjoy the fruits of our labor; the same is true with millenniums.” (12) Are we possibly neck in neck, plummeting at breakneck speed into the Kingdom of His wondrous reign?

“The Hebrew noun for the neck is עורף (oreph, Strong’s #6203), which is derived out of the Hebrew verb ערף (araph, Strong’s #6202) meaning “to be necked,” as in “breaking the neck.” Jeff Benner. (13)

Yes, Come Yeshua Come, with Breakneck speed and set up your Kingdom!

After reading Jeff Benner’s definition of “neck breaking” Mrs. Gallagher and I were reminded of a few scriptures and several more idioms. Pain in the neck——a millstone around the neck—dead from the neck up—neck to neck—long neck–kinked neck–stiff necked, and K. reminded me of how interesting it is that We adorn (like a Bride) our necks with a neck-lace. What a beautiful image!

“My son, observe the commandment of your father And do not forsake the teaching of your mother; Bind them continually on your heart; Tie them around your neck.” Proverbs 6:20-21. Stephen takes this “neck” message further and they end up stoning him to death after they placed their fingers in their ears in rebellion. ““You men who are stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears are always resisting the Holy Spirit; you are doing just as your fathers did.  Which one of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? They killed those who had previously announced the coming of the Righteous One, whose betrayers and murderers you have now become; you who received the law (Torah) as ordained by angels, and yet did not keep it.” Acts 7:51-53 NASB. We know HaShem became very upset with His children and at one point said, “Go up to the land flowing with milk and honey. But I will not go with you, because you are a stiff-necked people and I might destroy you on the way.” Exodus 33:3 NIV.

  1. Gallagher explains: “Stiff-necked” evokes the image of an unsubmissive, defiant, and stubborn animal that will not accept the yoke of the master in order to work the land. Necks are where burdens and/or yokes are lain.”

“In Hebrew, Egypt is called Mitzrayim. When God took us out of Mitzrayim, He extricated us from the place of constricted opportunities, tight control, and narrow-mindedness, where movement was severely limited.” (14)

You know another amazing detail about all this stiff neckness– Giraffe’s necks are so flexible they are like a slinky! Yes, its neck is said to be comparable to those cylinder wire toys from our childhood. The ones that seemed to effortlessly slink down the stairs steps.

“We call the vertebrae in the top portion of our backs the thoracic vertebrae. In humans, thoracic vertebrae are joined at the middle of the bone to provide added stability; and our cervical vertebrae fuse at the front and back for more mobility. Giraffe anatomy doesn’t follow this same construction, and its first and second thoracic vertebrae are bound in the same way that its cervical ones are, with ball-and-socket joints [source: Dagg and Foster]. (15) That adaptation gives the giraffe an extra point of flexibility.”

Could it be that a time is coming when Yeshua’s Body is not Stiff-necked, but flexible—bendable—bowing low like the Giraffe has to do to get a drink of water? Could it be that finally All the Body is going to be a people who uphold His Torah and our nation will be a nation that stands with Israel? A man named Jacob had his name changed to Israel and when he blessed the tribes, he told the tribe of Judah this.

“Your brothers will praise you; your hand will be on the neck of your enemies; your father’s sons will bow down to you.” Genesis 49:8-9 GWT.

America has something else in common with this baby giraffe. This mother in Denver named Kipele gave birth at the beginning of March. According to the Denver post, “Although the birth went well, the calf was not initially nursing. Dobby received a plasma transfusion to boost his immune system and fight infection last week after his keepers noticed he had difficulty standing and nursing. Blood tests showed he wasn’t getting enough proteins needed to fight infections from his mother, Kipele.” (16)

giraffe 2

As I researched the Swahili meaning of Kipele I kept coming up empty handed. In English it seemed to mean pimple or scab but when I looked further I found this. (17)

monarch

According to this source, Kipele represent a beautiful butterfly. The father’s name Dikembe has a very Ephraim feel to it. “ The Meaning of Dikembe: ‘Rich and Powerful Ruler, Strong Ruler –(18)

Dobby brings the zoo’s giraffe herd to five, officials said. Most newborn giraffe’s measure 6 feet, but Dobby was five foot and instead of weighing in at about 150, Dobby weighed 73 pounds. I noticed the number 5 and instantly thought of grace. As we read earlier, the baby also needed a blood transfusion and again I am thinking of America. America was a strong powerful ruler just like the name Dikembe. I wrote a book that is no longer available as I am editing and adding some chapters to it, but the title I was given was “Give Birth to a New Nation.” The cover had a picture of a very pregnant woman draped in the flag. This baby giraffe weighed 73 pounds and this reminded me of the number 10 in Hebrew.

The number ten in Hebrew means–“Esehr [f.], ahsahrah [m.] Divine order, completed cycle, measure, or group (congregation) whether for good or evil, blessing or judgment. A tenth part represents the whole in a tithe. Thus, ten represents a complete congregation, body, or kingdom, whether good or evil.” (19)

America can be established for good and not evil which requires us turning back to YHWH and His Commandments and bending our stiff necks to receive His grace.

The name Dobby is quite peculiar. I looked into its meaning and this is what I found.

Dobby-

“British Dialect. A fatuous person; A fool. I believe America has also been very foolish. However, the meaning of Dobby as a last name was similar to Robert and since this is my Middle son’s name I knew instantly what that meant. A bright shining LIGHT.” (20)

Last name: Dobby. This interesting name is a dialectal variant of the name Dobb, which derives from the medieval given name “Dobbe”, itself a pet form of Robert, (Old English pre 7th Century “Hrodebert”).

Meaning of Dobby: ‘Famous, Bright, Shining, Clear, Diminutive of Clarence, English short form of Robert (meaning: the glorious Shining).‘ – (21)

Dobby was born in Denver Colorado and yes, I believe God is in the tiniest details. Denver means “green Valley” and Colorado has a Spanish origin and means “colored red.” (22) This could imply that America could move into green pastures covered red by the blood of the Lamb this Passover/ April season or our lush green hills could be bloody in a bad way. Will we allow our stiff necks to be yoked with Him the one who saved us and delivered us? Will we humble ourselves and uphold His Torah and bring back righteous ruling and elect righteous leaders who will uphold life?

I’m still waiting for April and Oliver to give birth in Harpursville New York. King David played the harp and demons fled. What a fitting name for these two parents and their location. I wonder what the name of their baby calf will be. Perhaps Zion? Israel?

There were two women in the Bible, one was named Ruth and the other Orpah. They were Moabites. Moab is the name of the incestuous son of Lot. According to the Torah, no descendent of Mo’av (Moab) is allowed in the assembly of Israel (Deuteronomy 23:3). And Yet Ruth bows her neck very low and comes with her mother in law Naomi to the House of Bread and she tells her Mother-in-law that where she goes, she will follow her. “But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you or turn back from following you; for where you go, I will go, and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God. 17 Where you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. Thus may the Lord do to me, and worse, if anything but death parts you and me.” When she saw that she was determined to go with her, she [e]said no more to her.” Ruth 1:16-18 NASB.

She meets a wealthy land owner named Boaz and Ruth bows very low to him. “Then she fell on her face, bowing to the ground and said to him, “Why have I found favor in your sight that you should take notice of me, since I am a foreigner?” Ruth 2:10 NASB. Again think “neck.” She ends up marrying Boaz and is in the lineage of King David and our Messiah, Yeshua/ Jesus the Anointed One.

Her sister-n-law Orpah stayed in Moab—dry—dusty—stiff-necked Moab. Two women—two choices. Two nations—two births of a calf. Will one stand under grace with the help of a blood transfusion from Yeshua? Orpah stayed in bondage, but Ruth left everything for a greater ending.

The name Orpah means “NECK.” Awe, this neck thing is deep!

My mother said that when she was pregnant with me the Father told her to call me Ruth. I lived in Moab a very long time. Even when I thought I had come out of Moab, I had not surrendered my stiff-neck like a humble Ruth would. It took much dying of flesh and a long walk from Moab to reach the House of Bread. Just as Ruth had to take a journey to Bethlehem and bow very low before Boaz, who represents our Father, I too, had to give up all of that past life filled with sickness, unsubmissiveness, defiance, stubbornness and yes, a very stiff-neck.

A prophet named Obadiah had a message for the people of Edom and the restoration of Israel. Edom means red like Esau. He too had a stiff neck and lost his birthright—sold it for a bowl of soup. I leave you with this word from Obadiah’s.

“For the day of the Lord draws near on all the nations. As you have done, it will be done to you. Your dealings will return on your own head. “Because just as you drank on My holy mountain, All the nations will drink continually. They will drink and [k]swallow And become as if they had never existed.  But on Mount Zion there will be those who escape, And it will be holy. And the house of Jacob will possess their possessions.  “Then the house of Jacob will be a fire And the house of Joseph a flame; But the house of Esau will be as stubble.” Obadiah 1:15-18 NASB.

Eat, Eat, and Eat Some More


As I was studying and writing Blow a Trumpet in Tekoa, I heard this in my spirit. “My blessing for you in the sixth year that it will bring forth the crop for three years.” Leviticus 25:21.
Right now the Father is giving us so much spiritual food we dont have time to eat it all. It’s being poured out so fast and so richly that those who are seeing it have pulled up to the banquet table and are feasting and devouring it like gold. Others are caught up in this world and the things of this world.
Elijah fled to a cave after killing the false prophets. While he was hiding from Jezebel, the Father gave him food that sustained him for 40 days. ”
The angel of the LORD came again a second time and touched him and said, “Arise, eat, because the journey is too great for you.” 1st Kings 19:8.
I am urging the people of Yah to eat and eat all you can and hide it in your heart and gird up your loins because on this journey and the days ahead of us we will NEED it.

10 Things You May not Know About the Ten Commandments


ten%20commandments-5

The Ten Commandments, Writings, or Statements, come straight out of the Torah (Law) Jesus/Yeshua said: “If you love me, keep my commandments.” John 14:15.

  1. These ten are part of the 613 laws given to the children of Israel.
  2. They are about our thoughts, speech, and actions towards G-d, others and our parents.
  3. Several Biblical translations says “Thou shalt not kill,” this is not a reflection of the truer meaning which is better translated as murder. Murdering someone and killing someone is two different things. As Rabbi Dovid Bendory put it, “killing” itself need not have a moral context — a soldier kills in battle, an intended murder victim kills in self-defense, a drug dealer kills his competition, and a doctor kills a patient. Whether “killing” carries criminal culpability (the drug dealer), civil culpability (the doctor), or is righteous (the intended murder victim) depends on the context and circumstances.”

Murder is something premeditated upon or something evil, where killing could happen by means of your car striking another car. In the Bible, they had a place called a city of refuge where a person who had accidently killed someone could flee for protection. In the Commandments concerning this topic of murder and killings, it says that a person who murders someone intentionally with hatred and evil in their heart must be killed. This is righteous killing according to the Torah.

  1. The commandment to not bear false witness against your neighbor is one that we see happening in the case of wicked Jezebel who swore Naboth had lied against the King and Yahweh. This caused an innocent man to die. Bearing false witness and lying can be two different things. Let me explain. If you tell your 80-year-old grandmother you like her curtains after she questions you about them, but secretly find them too flashy for your taste, this is not bearing false witness, and this is making your grandmother feel good in a matter that causes no one harm. When we translate these into our own beliefs we take away from the seriousness of them. If you are speaking about a person in a negative light and it causes them to be isolated or treated differently in your assembly or your own family, you are causing harm. Also, in the manner of bearing false witness, you can be guilty of not saying anything to defend a righteous person while listening to others bear falsely or paint the person in a negative light. This too is a sin.
  2. This next Commandment on Sabbath keeping is one that makes a person shake their head at what has happened concerning it. If you have studied the Feast at any length you realize that this set apart day cannot be changed and Paul’s words from Galatians have been misconstrued by ignorant men. I could spend all day here but most already believe that Jesus/ Yeshua arose on Sunday and therefore we now worship on Sunday or they believe getting caught up with a day is bondage and a ritual. The Father said to remember it and keep it holy. Did He change His mind? No.

Remember the Sabbath and keep it Kadosh (Holy). Kadosh means something set aside and separated for a certain time. The same meaning of this word is what is spoken at a wedding when the groom says to the bride, “You are betrothed to me.” The Sabbath was made for man and it was never changed to Sun-day. No one in the Bible had church on Sunday. The Creator picked one day and set it aside and called it holy. After Jesus arose from the grave and ascended, the apostles and men and women of G-d kept the Sabbath. In the new kingdom, all will keep the Sabbath. It is a rehearsal for our wedding day. A rehearsal for the real deal. The earth and everything in it requires rest. I want you to look at a word we read over and over again and that word is “Custom.” According to Strong’s, this is something fixed forever. Appointed (1), customs (5), due (1), fixed order (1), fixed patterns (1).

Let’s look at a few verses concerning this.

 

“As was his custom, Paul went into the synagogue, and on three Sabbaths he reasoned with them from the Scriptures,” Acts 17:2. “Every Sabbath he (Paul) reasoned in the synagogue, trying to persuade Jews and Greeks.” Acts 18:4. Never do we read the men of G-d telling the Greeks or Jews that the Sabbath was changed to Sunday, nor do we read of any of them starting a Sunday “church” and giving it a man-made name.

“After setting sail from Paphos, Paul and his companions came to Perga in Pamphylia, where John left them to return to Jerusalem. And from Perga, they traveled inland to Pisidian Antioch, where they entered the synagogue on the Sabbath and sat down. After the reading from the Law and the Prophets, the synagogue leaders sent word to them: “Brothers, if you have a word of encouragement for the people, please speak.”… Acts 13:13-15. It was their “custom” and we see Jesus/ Yeshua kept it perfectly. “Then Jesus came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. As was His custom, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath.” Luke 4:16.

Acts 13:42 (NKJV) “So when the Jews went out of the synagogue, the Gentiles begged that these words might be preached to them the next Sabbath.”

Acts 13:44 “On the next Sabbath almost the whole city came together to hear the word of Yahweh.”

Now let’s look at the New Kingdom.

 

“For just as the new heavens and the new earth

Which I make will endure before Me,” declares the LORD,

“So your offspring and your name will endure.

“And it shall be from new moon to new moon

And from sabbath to sabbath,

All mankind will come to bow down before Me,” says the LORD.” Isaiah 66:22-23.

  1. The word Law or Torah means to teach or to instruct. We are G-d’s children and we need instructions. If you saw your child eating trash or playing in the street, you would instruct them.
  2. “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Psalms 119:105. This WORD mentioned that lights the way is none other than the Torah. Yeshua/ Jesus was the Word made flesh. If you quote this scripture and were made to memorize it years ago, I beg you to ponder all the verses in Psalms 119. This is where you will learn much wisdom and knowledge about the instructions for life, marriage and yes, eternity.

 

  1. Many religious groups have been at war over the law (Torah) and some claim it was done away with, while others claim we should be Torah observant and keep it all– others wish to exclude sacrifices. This causes arguments and people get very unbalanced. Some venture towards a hyper-grace belief and basically live however they want with a belief that they will be forgiven. (Once saved always saved) Others run to keep all the Torah and begin to wear headscarf’s, tallit’s, grow beards and not even drive their cars after sundown. Often, Christians who proclaim that the law was done away with, or that they no longer need to keep it, end up in jail over keeping a portion of it or even quoting it–never realizing that they were.
  2. Once we engrave it on our hearts we have a fear of breaking it because we love our Father and His Son who died for us. “He that has my commandments and keeps them, he it is that loves me …” (John 14:21)

“Now by this, we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says, I know Him,” and does not keep His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him.” (I John 2:3-6). If you are married and love your husband, you want to please him. If you are intimate with him and honor him, you will not want to break his trust. Some people marry for lust, money, or for what they can get out of it. They may go through the motions of obeying and honoring, but their hearts may be far from their husbands. The Father told his people that they honored him with lip service but their hearts were far away. Some only marry for material wealth, fame, attention, a way out of a bad home life, and so on. However, the wife who loves her husband will be faithful and true because she does not want to be given a certificate of divorce and sent away in shame. And that is exactly what HaShem did with His people, but He is merciful.

“The Lord said to me, “Go, show your love to your wife again, though she is loved by another man and is an adulteress. Love her as the Lord loves the Israelites, though they turn to other gods and love the sacred raisin cakes.” Hosea 3:1.

We just read how we can know if we love our husband or not. “He that has my commandments and keeps them, he it is that loves me …” (John 14:21)

“Pursue peace with all, and pursue apartness without which no one shall see the Master.” Hebrews 12:14 ISR.

Apartness. Separating from the world and the things of the world in order to live for eternity with our Father and His Son. Ponder the Ten this week. See if you can recite them without looking at your Bibles.

Blessings!
