10Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.

My dear friends,

       We must encourage one another with the scriptures below Luke 15:10-32.

When we repent we must both humbly and sorrowfully come before Yahweh and tell HIM how sorry we are for having sinned against HIM and our neighbor. We know by HIS spoken words we are forgiven when we come before HIM confessing our sins. 

My friends, we are going to stumble and sometimes fall but we must trust in Yahweh , that he will never leave us not forsake us.

The parable of the prodigal son that Yahshua spoke of. The youngest of two sons left home and took all his treasure and spent it on un-godly things. One day while in thought he realized how sinful he had been. He felt he was no longer deserving to be called his father's son. He felt un-worthy and needed to tell his father.

What he didn't expect was the love his father showed him when he returned home. The father was not interested in where his son  had been or what he had done. The father rejoiced because the son came home.

This is true of our heavenly Father. HE rejoices when we come home. HE wants us to be with HIM for all eternity. HE does not want us to be separated from HIM. To be of the world is to be absent from HIM. Yahweh wants us to feel HIS love for us.

My friend, will you choose to come home, and repent?

 Luke 15:10-32

10Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.
11And he said, A certain man had two sons:
12And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.
13And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.
14And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.
15And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
16And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.
17And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
18I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
19And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
20And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
21And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
22But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
23And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:
24For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
25Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing.
26And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.
27And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.
28And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.
29And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:
30But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
31And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.
32It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.

6 - Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I [am] the first, and I [am] the last; and beside me [there is] no God.

Isaiah 44 1-10 & 22-24
1 - Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen: 2 - Thus saith the LORD that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, [which] will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen. 3 - For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring: 4 - And they shall spring up [as] among the grass, as willows by the water courses. 5 - One shall say, I [am] the LORD'S; and another shall call [himself] by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe [with] his hand unto the LORD, and surname [himself] by the name of Israel. 6 - Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I [am] the first, and I [am] the last; and beside me [there is] no God. 7 - And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them shew unto them. 8 - Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared [it]? ye [are] even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, [there is] no God; I know not [any]. 9 - They that make a graven image [are] all of them vanity; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they [are] their own witnesses; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed. 10 - Who hath formed a god, or molten a graven image [that] is profitable for nothing?

22 - I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee.
23 - Sing, O ye heavens; for the LORD hath done [it]: shout, ye lower parts of the earth: break forth into singing, ye mountains, O forest, and every tree therein: for the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and glorified himself in Israel.
24 - Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I [am] the LORD that maketh all [things]; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;

For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?

Romans 11:34-36 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?35Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? 36For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.

Romans 11:18-2418Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee. 19Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be grafted in.
20Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear: 21For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.
22Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off. 23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again.
24For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?

HE Knows My Heart

Please Pray For These Innocent Children And ALL Children Of Yahweh Who Are Or Have Suffered Abuse

DAYTON, Texas (AP) -- Texas authorities said Tuesday they removed 11 children from a crowded home where a registered sex offender lives after they found eight confined in a small, dark bedroom with restraints tying some to their beds.
Along with the children, 10 adults were living in the one-story, 1,700-square-foot home in Dayton, about 30 miles northeast of Houston, Child Protective Services spokeswoman Gwen Carter said. One month after a raid on the house, authorities are still trying to determine how the children are related and why they were there, she said.
The children ranged in age from 5 months to 11 years. Three who were age 5 or older had not been enrolled in school, Carter said.
The children were removed after authorities found two 2-year-old children tied to a bed during a January visit to the home, according to a court document.
A legally blind, 5-year-old girl "was in a restraint on a filthy mattress, and appeared to be in a daze," the document said. One child had a black eye and knocked-out tooth.
The adults told investigators they tied the children when they slept or took a nap during the day "for safety," the document said. An investigator noted that none of the adults said they saw anything wrong with the arrangement.


Two boys were walking home from Sunday school after hearing a strong preaching on the devil.
One said to the other, ‘What do you think about all this Satan stuff?’
The other boy replied, ‘Well, you know how Santa Claus turned out. It’s probably just your Dad.’
Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl whispered to her mother, ‘Why is the bride dressed in white?”
The mother replied, ‘Because white is the color of happiness, and today is the happiest day of her life.’
The child thought about this for a moment then said, ‘So why is the groom wearing black?’
A little girl, dressed in her Sunday best, was running as fast as she could, trying not to be late for Bible class.
As she ran she prayed, ‘Dear Lord, please don’t let me be late! Dear Lord, please don’t let me be late!’
While she was running and praying, she tripped on a curb and fell, getting her clothes dirty and tearing her dress.
She got up, brushed herself off, and started running again!
As she ran she once again began to pray, ‘Dear Lord, please don’t let me be late…But please don’t shove me either!’
Three boys are in the school yard bragging about their fathers.
The first boy says, ‘My Dad scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a poem, they give him $50.’
The second boy says, ‘That’s nothing. My Dad scribbles a few words on piece of paper, he calls it a song, they give him $100.’
The third boy says, ‘I got you both beat. My Dad scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a sermon, and it takes eight people to collect all the money!’
An elderly woman died last month.
Having never married, she requested no male pallbearers.
In her handwritten instructions for her memorial service, she wrote, ‘They wouldn’t take me out while I was alive, I don’t want them to take me out when I’m dead.’
A police recruit was asked during the exam, ‘What would you do if you had to arrest your own mother?’
He answered, ‘Call for backup.’
A Sunday School teacher asked her class why Joseph and Mary took Jesus with them to Jerusalem.
A small child replied, ‘They couldn’t get a baby-sitter.’
A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds.
After explaining the commandment to ‘Honour thy father and thy mother,’ she asked, ‘Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?’
Without missing a beat, one little boy answered, ‘Thou shall not kill.’
At Sunday School they were teaching how God created everything, including human beings.
Little Johnny seemed especially intent when they told him how Eve was created out of one of Adam’s ribs.
Later in the week his mother noticed him lying down as though he were ill, and she said, ‘Johnny, what is the matter?’
Little Johnny responded, ‘I have pain in my side. I think I’m going to have a wife.

My Third Reading This Morning. Ask Yahweh To Show You TRUTH. Do NOT Be Deceived About The Rapture

1 Corinthians 13

1Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
4Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity

The Rapture? When? My Second Reading This Morning. Not A Coinicidence

Joel 2

1Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
2A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations.
3A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
4The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.
5Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.
6Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness.
7They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:
8Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.
9They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.
10The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
11And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?
12Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:
13And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.
14Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God?
15Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:
16Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.
17Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?
18Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people.
19Yea, the LORD will answer and say unto his people, Behold, I will send you corn, and wine, and oil, and ye shall be satisfied therewith: and I will no more make you a reproach among the heathen:
20But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up, and his ill savour shall come up, because he hath done great things.
21Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for the LORD will do great things.
22Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength.
23Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
24And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the vats shall overflow with wine and oil.
25And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
26And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.
27And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.
28And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
29And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
30And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.
31The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.
32And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

The Rapture?! When? This was my first reading this morning

Matthew 24

1And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.
2And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
10And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
11And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
12And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
13But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
14And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
16Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
17Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:
18Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
20But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:
21For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
23Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
24For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
25Behold, I have told you before.
26Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
28For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
29Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
32Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
33So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
49And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

16So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

Matthew 20

1For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard.
2And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
3And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,
4And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way.
5Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise.
6And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle?
7They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive.
8So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first.
9And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.
10But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny.
11And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house,
12Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.
13But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?
14Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.
15Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?
16So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

18Though these three men were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters, but they only shall be delivered themselves.

Ezekiel 14

1Then came certain of the elders of Israel unto me, and sat before me.
2And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
3Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their heart, and put the stumblingblock of their iniquity before their face: should I be enquired of at all by them?
4Therefore speak unto them, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Every man of the house of Israel that setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to the prophet; I the LORD will answer him that cometh according to the multitude of his idols;
5That I may take the house of Israel in their own heart, because they are all estranged from me through their idols.
6Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Repent, and turn yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations.
7For every one of the house of Israel, or of the stranger that sojourneth in Israel, which separateth himself from me, and setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to a prophet to enquire of him concerning me; I the LORD will answer him by myself:
8And I will set my face against that man, and will make him a sign and a proverb, and I will cut him off from the midst of my people; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
9And if the prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I the LORD have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel.
10And they shall bear the punishment of their iniquity: the punishment of the prophet shall be even as the punishment of him that seeketh unto him;
11That the house of Israel may go no more astray from me, neither be polluted any more with all their transgressions; but that they may be my people, and I may be their God, saith the Lord GOD.
12The word of the LORD came again to me, saying,
13Son of man, when the land sinneth against me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and will break the staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it:
14Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord GOD.
15If I cause noisome beasts to pass through the land, and they spoil it, so that it be desolate, that no man may pass through because of the beasts:
16Though these three men were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters; they only shall be delivered, but the land shall be desolate.
17Or if I bring a sword upon that land, and say, Sword, go through the land; so that I cut off man and beast from it:
18Though these three men were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters, but they only shall be delivered themselves.
19Or if I send a pestilence into that land, and pour out my fury upon it in blood, to cut off from it man and beast:
20Though Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness.
21For thus saith the Lord GOD; How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast?
22Yet, behold, therein shall be left a remnant that shall be brought forth, both sons and daughters: behold, they shall come forth unto you, and ye shall see their way and their doings: and ye shall be comforted concerning the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, even concerning all that I have brought upon it.
23And they shall comfort you, when ye see their ways and their doings: and ye shall know that I have not done without cause all that I have done in it, saith the Lord GOD.

Manna From Heaven Matthew 6:25-34

21Turn thou us unto thee, O LORD, and we shall be turned; renew our days as of old.

Lamentations 5

1Remember, O LORD, what is come upon us: consider, and behold our reproach.
2Our inheritance is turned to strangers, our houses to aliens.
3We are orphans and fatherless, our mothers are as widows.
4We have drunken our water for money; our wood is sold unto us.
5Our necks are under persecution: we labour, and have no rest.
6We have given the hand to the Egyptians, and to the Assyrians, to be satisfied with bread.
7Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne their iniquities.
8Servants have ruled over us: there is none that doth deliver us out of their hand.
9We gat our bread with the peril of our lives because of the sword of the wilderness.
10Our skin was black like an oven because of the terrible famine.
11They ravished the women in Zion, and the maids in the cities of Judah.
12Princes are hanged up by their hand: the faces of elders were not honoured.
13They took the young men to grind, and the children fell under the wood.
14The elders have ceased from the gate, the young men from their musick.
15The joy of our heart is ceased; our dance is turned into mourning.
16The crown is fallen from our head: woe unto us, that we have sinned!
17For this our heart is faint; for these things our eyes are dim.
18Because of the mountain of Zion, which is desolate, the foxes walk upon it.
19Thou, O LORD, remainest for ever; thy throne from generation to generation.
20Wherefore dost thou forget us for ever, and forsake us so long time?
21Turn thou us unto thee, O LORD, and we shall be turned; renew our days as of old.
22But thou hast utterly rejected us; thou art very wroth against us.

Hospital Window....


Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room’s only window.

The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back. The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation.

Every afternoon when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.

The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.
As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by.
Although the other man couldn’t hear the band – he could see it. In his mind’s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.

Days and weeks passed.

One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.

As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.
Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside.

He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed.
It faced a blank wall. The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window
The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.
She said, “Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.”

One Thirst

Luke 6:4545A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.


     Luke 6:45 45A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

The above scripture is very powerful in discerning good and evil. When a believer is among non-believers the first thing that you sense in your Spirit is un-easiness. The feeling something just isn't right.

We are to have the armour of Yahweh on at ALL times Ephesians 6. My friends, have you ever stepped out in the flesh leaving your armour home and everyplace you went you felt ill? You could not put your finger on it but you felt impending doom and darkness? This is the Spirit's way of warning you. "COME OUT OF HER"

One day while out shopping I walked into a store , the moment I walked in the front door I fell ill. I had just come to Christ and was still young at discerning people and places. However, this day I was taught a lesson. I walked around this store ignoring what the Spirit was showing me. I didn't realize what was happening until I walked out of the store. The darkness and ill feeling was lifted. I knew that I had not guarded my Spirit.

I find many believers today without their armour on. There have been times when I have not put my armour on just looking on the computer and right away my Spirit tells me.

There is good on the computer folks but there is also a lot of evil. When looking innocently you may come across evil demonic images, words, music and so on. You must be guarded with the hedge of protection of Yahweh and the blood of Yeshua at all times.

My Spirit of late has been troubled with the attention on such subjects as the rapture, the sounds around the world, the rumors or wars, the presidential election, solar flares and so much more. As these things are important and we are to look for the signs of the end. We are losing site of what a disciple is. "FISHERS OF MEN" Mark 1. We must be teaching the gospel, repentance and salvation.

We must be teaching most importantly about our Savior. What does it benefit a soul if they learn of a rapture but are not part of it? How does it help a soul to focus on the evil of the world and not to have hope in Christ? We must go back to the basics. What are the fruits of the Spirit? What are the gifts of the Spirit? What is walking in Christ image?

We are losing souls to evil already. Trust me evil does not need advertisement. We need to help the un-believers, the lost, the weak and bring them into the fold through love. HIS love.

Please edify one another. Love one another. Carry the burdens of  each other. Do not speak evil out of your mouth. Be slow to speak and quick to hear. We must go back and learn Christ.

In HIM with love,

Joel 2:13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.


       Joel 2:13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.

My friends, let's look at this verse carefully. In the bible we have read about tearing(rending) garments and throwing dust on heads. The people did this openly for all to see, they wanted attention, they were looking for man's approval not Yahweh's.

We must have a heart that feels great sorrow when we have hurt Yahweh or our neighbor. A repentive heart that not only feels sorrow, but turns from wickedness. A heart so sorrowful that when repented it will change us forever. When we have a right heart, we turn from our ways of the past, and we are made new.

Yahweh, doesn't want only an open display of repentance, HE wants a changed inward repentive heart. We can say we are sorry for hurting someone but we need more than words. We show our true sorrow by not repeating our past.

When one rends their garment, it is often just satisfying the flesh. The actions are repeated over and over and the heart does not change. When we learn to rend our hearts, we inwardly change, and without knowing it we are then changed outwardly.

We must repent and turn away from self and back to Yahweh. We must rend our hearts to HIM and not just our garments.  When the question was asked Christ, "What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?" He answered, "This is the work of God, that ye believe on Him whom He hath sent." John 6:28, 29.

The Pharisees washed the cups and plates on the outside but the inside was still dirty. We are much the same if we do not rend our hearts. Turn away today from your sins and ask Yahweh to forgive you. We all need to heed to Joel 2:13.

In Yahweh with love,

Jehovah/ Yehovah

My friends,

  I would like to share with you scripture that the Ruach Ha Kodesh led me to. I pray you seek truth and answers with an open heart.

Let's begin with John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Now to Revelation 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

In the two verses we see "The word was God" God came in the flesh. " his name is called the Word of God" The Saviour's name is called "the word of God." What is this name?

Isaiah 7:1414Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel."Immanuel" meaning God is with us.

Psalm 83:18That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth."Yehovah IS the Father and the Son.

John 14:8-9 Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father?

Isaiah 44:66Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

John 10:3030I and my Father are one.

I can go on and on with scripture verifying that the Father/Son are one. What is their name. The Son says I come in my Father's name. John 5:43 43I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

Exodus 3:14-1514And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. 5And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

Exodus 6:2-32And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD: 3And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.

My friends, let's look at the name "JEHOVAH" and it's meaning. We know the Father/Son are one in the same. The Son came in the Father's name. We see from the scriptures above "but by my name JEHOVAH" was I not known to them.

The meaning of JEHOVAH. Lexicon H3068

Jehovah = "the existing One"1) the proper name of the one true God

Isaiah 12:22Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.

Isaiah 26:44Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

My dear friends, it has been a long two weeks in prayer seeking answers truth and Spirit. I ask that you seek these answers for yourself. There is one name we must call on to be saved. Don't you think it deserves special attention in prayer? Please don't take my word, ask Yehovah for yourself.

In Yehovah with love,

"Love Is The Only Way To Enter My Kingdom"

I'll Spread Your Name

One Awesome Savior

"Seek Me In Spirit And Truth"

To all visitors:

      Peace to you. To those who have been following my blog and to those who are new. I would like to speak on the changes to my blog.

First, I want to take this time to apologize for the errors I have made over the past two years on this blog. While learning over the past two years I have run into many stumbling blocks, some  I discerned right away some took longer. Either way I apologize.

Today, I would like to speak about those stumbling blocks. When I was led by the Holy Spirit to do this blog Joan the Baptist I was to speak on repentance (I am now repenting). I was to speak on love, forgiveness, mercy, grace and prayer.

I took a little side road and realized I was getting lost. I turned around and headed for home. Today, I was shown where home is. It comes without observation, it is within us.

Let me explain. I have been seeking answers  in Spirit and Truth. Our Father has been so kind, patient and loving towards me,  HE alone knows my heart. Today, I have HIS peace.

"The Cave"  was written by a Greek philosopher, Plato.

Imagine yourself sitting in a cave bound hand and foot in chains. You look only in front of you staring at the dark gloomy walls. You see on the cave walls images which are objects. They are not real just shadows. Now, imagine you are one of the prisoners sitting in this cave, you were born there, you do not know anything different. This is all you have ever known. On the wall in front of you and the other prisoners, who you cannot see, but you know they are their because you speak to one another.  You pass the day looking at the shapes appearing on the wall. You see objects passing by. You name them "cat" "girl" and  so on. You and the other prisoners are okay with this life as this is all you have ever known to be truth. Then one day you are cut free from the chains, you look behind you, you see people walking by a fire carrying the objects on a stick. The fire illuminated them onto the wall, they were only shadows, but the prisoners thought they were real. Now, you walk out of the cave past the fire and see before you colors and shapes you are seeing the outside world for the first time. Realizing you have been living a lie you rush back to the cave to tell the other prisoners what it is you have discovered. The prisoners in the cave laugh at you. They don't understand what you are saying. They only know what was on the walls. They only know what they thought to be true. Then one day they seek truth. They find the answers they desired to know. The prisoners step out of the darkness and into the light.

 I stepped out of the darkness and into the light. While reading "The Cave" I changed the objects on the wall in my mind to the image of a man. This man was nailed to a tree. He has big nails sticking out of his hands and feet. He had a crown upon his head. There was a substance running down his body. He was hanging on a tree with his head bowed. He had a hole in his right side, there was a substance oozing out. The image was a sad one even though I did not see his face. Then the man stopped moving.

I left the cave wanting to know who this man was. I was told by some His name is Jesus. I was told by others his name is Lord. Then others his name is the Messiah, the Christ. More bystanders came up to me telling me his name was Yahshua, others Yahushua. But I asked, who is this man? Who is he? Tell me what he has done.

The people said all in one voice, "HE IS THE SAVIOUR OF THE WORLD" I asked what is a saviour. In one voice they said, "ONE WHO CAME TO SAVE THE WORLD" I said to them , the man I saw on the wall, he had a crown of thorns. The people all in one voice said, "YES, HE IS A KING" I said there was a substance running down his body. In all one voice they said," HIS BLOOD" I asked why? " THEY SAID HIS BLOOD WASHED AWAY OUR SINS, HIS BLOOD GIVES US  ETERNAL SALVATION, WHICH IS GRACE" What do we need salvation from? The people all said in one voice, " SIN" What is sin? " NOT OBEYING WHAT HAS BEEN COMMANDED" What are these commands? " TO LOVE THY GOD WITH ALL THY HEART, SOUL, BODY , MIND AND STRENGTH, AND SECOND TO LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF" Is this what saves us? In one voice they said, "NO, YOU CANNOT SAVE YOURSELF" Then what saves us? " GRACE SAVES US" What is grace? " IT IS A FREE GIFT, THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO TO EARN IT" Why then do we follow the commandments? In one voice they said, " BECAUSE WE'RE LOVED.  WE WANT TO SHOW OUR LOVE IN RETURN BY NOT SINNING" The man on the tree, did he die because he loved us? In one voice the people said, "YES, HE LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE LAID DOWN HIS LIFE FOR US" How do we show we love him? They all spoke in one voice. "TO LOVE HIM IS TO KEEP HIS COMMANDS" Where is he? " HE IS IN HEAVEN, HE SITS AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER" I thought he died? In one voice the people all said, "HE DID DIE, BUT HE ROSE AGAIN" If we die will we rise again? "YES, IF YOU HAVE FAITH AND BELIEVE THAT HE IS ALIVE" What can I do to show him I am sorry for sinning? In one voice they said, "REPENT"

My friends, I would like to share with you something my son wrote after our conversation today. 

The Mountain:

It has come to be something which is conquered, climbed for the sport of climbing and sometimes to the bloody defeat of its challenger. Ancient cultures understood the mountain as something much different – and the word often carried with it multiple connotations, in spelling and meaning. The Jews have (more accurately, had) Mt. Sinai. Mountains where were the Law of God was delivered to Man. It is the clear vantage point of all the knowable world (sight has its limits), and the great opposite of the den, or cave (or if you’re Jonas, the Belly of the Whale). It is also what was referred to as a symbol of man’s uprightness. Uprightness understands that thought is generally perceived to be occurring in the head, not the feet. The mountain is the symbol then, of thought, the peak of the mountain, knowledge. However, when we, in Western Society, say mountain, we are limited mostly to imagining the physical formation which is called a mountain. The definition provided by science. Our relationship to the mountain has thusly also changed. We are no longer connected to the mystical experience, which is to say, we are no longer connected to the revelation of a Quality of Him in the mountain.

            Likewise, by not orienting ourselves to the mountain, as Moses did when he brought down the Laws, we become lost. For example, why does God have so many names? Like Yaweh and Yeshewa, and Jehova, and the Alpha and the Omega that have been boiled down through modern translation to just mean (read!) God. But they all had their own connotations, and each referred to a specific Quality of Him, such as the Alpha and the Omega, referring to our origins from Him, and our return back to Him. The Qualities are the many “I am” statements, and He is those many “I am” statements. The ancient Jews understood.

But the many Qualities of Him, were seen by early Christian sects, as “too pagan.” As if One, multi-faceted God would be too tricky a ploy to pull people away from their pagan practices of worshipping many gods. But the difference remains implied; that ancient pagans worshipped each Quality of Him as being separate from Each Other, whereas the Jewish people worshipped God as the one source of God the Word, and God the Father, and God the Redeemer, etc; All are just the one God.

            But why do we not connect with this understanding of God as made of many, who is the One? Because we don’t have access to scripture reflecting the many names of God in some of the most widely practiced forms of Christianity. Because we have put a veil on God, confounded His many names and our understanding of Him. We no longer are able to connect the name, just like the symbol, with its true meaning. We see the shadow on the cave wall, not the object which casts the shadow, and wrongly, we say the shadow is the object. Does your shadow have eyes and a nose and a freckle on that nose? The shadow is not you. The shadow is not the object. The object is the object. Names and titles, like those once practiced, gave meaning to one’s life, to what it meant to be a human being, to understanding more soundly their life as it relates to the Maker. Language hadn’t yet disintegrated, and the symbol/name referred to the ‘idea’, the ‘truth’, the practiced meaning which provided understanding to the individual. I want to refer back to my usage of the word ‘practiced’, because therein lies the key to understanding meaning, that meaning is ‘practiced’ (experienced), not spoken. Our modern society, full of disconnects, full of emptiness and numbness, can be attributed to the fact that we have no clue as to who we are and what we’re doing here. We don’t understand our connection to the mountain, to what the mountain means, so instead we call it a heap of rocks and try to dominate it. The End.

I have kept the songs and some images on the blog as they all refrence the one who deserves praise, love and worship. Our creator, Our Father, Our Saviour.

In HIM with love,
