Who is ready, who is listening?

Is Anybody Listening

I’m a Christian, that is to say, I follow Jesus and believe every word in the Bible is from God. Oh, we may choose to interpret it our own way, but His intention is to give us access to His heart and His ways. If we choose to follow, we will have abundant life in this world and in the next.

Abundance

Abundant is a term that has many interpretations. The first or most obvious may be as regards financial security.

Jesus never tried to get rich, and yet, wasn’t completely poor. He did not lack but he did not have plenty. So, what is this Abundant Life he is referring to, if not an existence with wealth and comfort?

Abundance is love, and the ripple effect that love produces.

Love. Kindness. Brotherly love. Fellowship, camaraderie, mutual respect and trustworthiness are all a part of this, I believe. An abundant life is a life full of good relationships with neighbours, family and fellow believers. No one died regretting working too little but many die with the regret they did not commit enough time or focus to their relationships.

Fellowship

And with whom are we to fellowship? Who is our brother? The Jew, and fellow believers (those who believe in and follow Yeshua/Jesus), be they Jewish or Gentile, are our closest neighbours. In fact, I’m thinking scripturally-speaking, we who believe and follow Jesus — or Yeshua — are all Messianic and to label only Jewish believers as such separates what could draw us closer together.

We who know Jesus are called to love all our neighbours; I believe I am mandated to begin by encouraging the fellowship of believers, regardless of their denomination or their cultural heritage or colour, to reach out to the Jewish people. Fellowship includes GOD’s chosen people, the Jews, and then the heirs by adoption, the gentile believers. And so, once we have reached out to the Jews, we must also stretch out our hands to all those who believe irrespective of education, background or financial means.

A Shift has come

In my life a definite shift has come as regards fellowship. I believe my first call is to the Jewish people, God’s Chosen, and next to fellow believers who seek the same. Isn’t it time we truly make the Jewish people jealous for God? (Romans 11:11)

They are called to fulfil Aliya (return to their homeland of Israel) and find a deep relationship with their God: Yehovah. And it is time for them to discover Messiah has come in Yeshua – their messiah whom we call Jesus, our saviour. (Isaiah 49:6)

Who is listening

Why me?

Why has GOD called upon my husband and I, no doubt along with a merry band of others dispersed here and there among the cast of believers (some of whom I know of and have called dear friends), to have this insight into the times? Actually, we are not so few.

Examining our Hebraic Roots is quite trendy. But this goes deeper. There are some pastors in America for example, who are leaving their denominations — or in the case of AOG are being supported as they shift — to worship corporately on Saturday rather than on Sunday, Saturday being the seventh day of the week, the day the LORD rested after the creation of the World, the day He calls the Sabbath.

But the message takes time to reach the ears and hearts of Believers.

I just don’t want folks to get left behind. In these days, there are many who are comfortable in their churches, living their somewhat holy lives, enjoying fellowship with one another and the LORD.  For me, and a lot of others, church just isn’t enough anymore. GOD wants much more than the Church of previous generations. And He’s showing us what He wants.

Test His Word

Go on… Look up End Times scriptures: Matthew 24, Daniel 12, Ezekiel 38, Revelation 8-9 and onwards. Read. Devour what the LORD has told us will come to pass. We are in the midst of calamity and change. Study to show yourself approved (2 Timothy 2:15) and discover what you’re meant to be doing… now. Prepare the way for others to know our GOD. The God of the Universe, the Father of Creation, the Prince of Peace and the Wonderful Councillor. (Isaiah 9:6)

GOD isn’t doing church the way He used to. So many who love Him have long departed Sunday worship and are at home, keeping in touch with GOD but not with fellow believers. Why do you think that is? It’s simple: that is not where GOD wants us to be. He wants us grafted into His structure, His will, His way. The time for the Gentiles has finished and it’s time to draw His people back to Himself, and for them to acknowledge their Messiah has come.

Why now?

It’s been a long time coming, and in fact, it’s been here for a good while. Church doesn’t cut it for many and in fact, generations have been in large part lost to the Gospel message as shared through the established Church. Jesus — Yeshua came in the flesh to do two things:

  1. To restore the Hebrews back to their God and
  2. To offer salvation to the world.

He came for the Gentiles to provoke the Jews to jealousy. Now it is time to draw them in to the Truth.

The church has compromised itself all in the name of relevance. The message has been watered down in many cases, and downright distorted in others. The passing of many men of GOD, the latest being Billy Graham, has marked the shift too. It is time to follow where our Father is leading… back to our Jewish roots (torn from the early church only a few centuries after its birth).

History*

The people of the Way, who followed the Rabbi Yeshua, were a Jewish sect. Called Christians by those who did not believe, the name stuck and eventually they were kicked out of Synagogue and later kicked back by turning their backs on the Judaic roots and capitalising on pagan festivals, rather than GOD’s feasts.

(*There is much more available on this found in my book, Who is God for the First Nations People (see ad below))


It’s time we go back to the true history of Genesis and Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. It’s time we engage with Jewish people, Messianic Jews and the Father in the Way He created for us. Not by might nor power, not by obligation nor a heavy yoke, but by His Spirit. (Zechariah 4:6)

Challenge

Will you take on the challenge? Will you put on the Will of the Father and seek only His Kingdom? When you do, you’ll discover deeper truth and deeper relationship with Jesus, and a deeper connection to who you are in Him.

True freedom is not a heavy yoke but it isn’t doing whatever you want either

It is not by might nor by power but by the Spirit. So let’s not study and then put on our own effort in this. But rather, let’s surrender to discover not only the freedom we have in Christ, but also the joy of the LORD in being all He has created us to be.

Shalom and GOD bless.

The End of Christian Tradition is not to be feared

The End of Christian Tradition as we know it

There are many signs which indicate to me that the end of Christianity as we have practised it has come.

While the atheists would like to see the end of it because it is antagonistic to their beliefs, this is not the reason it is dissipating.

While the Muslim extremists would like to see the end because they do not want any theocracy but theirs, that is not the reason it is finishing.

While the pagans and other belief systems are disdainful or lukewarm tolerant to contemporary Christianity, this is not the reason for its end.

The reason Christian tradition is on the decline is because Father God would have it so. The foundation, Jesus, is sound. However the early Church lost its way with Constantin and pagan festivals replacing God’s feasts. Christianity needs to get back to its roots; it has strayed very far from the tree. It needs again to become recognisable to the Jewish people.

The time of the Gentiles is finished; the time for God’s Chosen, the Jewish people has come. It is time for them to recognise and acknowledge their LORD, and prepare: their Messiah has come.

We of the Christian tradition must let go of those traditions so that we can embrace the traditions GOD instituted for us. He wants His people jealous (Romans 11:11) and so we must take what GOD has given us, practice it and allow the Jews to see.

We must let go of our festivals. We must let go of our traditions. We must let go and allow GOD to re-educate us and reform us. The root: Sunday worship, Communion, Christmas, Easter and the like, must go, to be replaced with GOD’s ordained day of rest, His sabbath, His passover, His several feasts. We don’t pick up the LAW but we embrace GOD’s gifts to us.

Christianity is not the festivals, it is Jesus. Christianity is not our denomination, it is Jesus. Following Jesus is not a tradition, it is salvation and glory to GOD. So, when can we begin to do it His way?

“I will build my church,” said Jesus. “And the gates of hell will not prevail against it.”

(Matthew 16:18)

Let us let go of the constructs of men and allow ourselves to follow our Saviour, Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2). He did not destroy the law but fulfilled it (Matthew 5:17). He came to set us free from sin and death (Romans 6:18). But he did not release us from the festivals ordained by GOD.

It is time. We who love our Father in Heaven are being called. He has bought us, paid the price, forgiven us and loved us. How can be not hear and follow?
