The Blasphemous Deification of Barack Obama – Godfather Politics


The Blasphemous Deification of Barack Obama – Godfather Politics.

 

Read this and understand the times we are living in.  Ask God to show you the Truth of all things, and Ask Yeshua/Jesus the Messiah into your Heart, Trust in the King of the Universe and Trust God the Creator of all living things that are and have been are to come.  God made all things possible by His Word,  His Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us.

There is no other God only God the Creator, there is no savoiur other than Yeshua the Messiah, Jesus the Son of the Living God.  No man can come to the father except by comeing first to Jesus and no body can come to Jesus unless God is first of all leading and drawing that person to himself

You can stand on roof tops and declare whatever you like, you can hold seminars on loads of pseudo idealogies but when it comes to the crunch only God can do the drawing and only God knows His own and he also knows who belong to the enemy.  Who do you belong to.  God and Yeshua or Satan and his minions.  To have no faith at all is a lonely and empty place.  Better have faith in one or the other than none at all.

Even Satan and his minions know God because before the were kicked out of Heaven they were with him.  But their own arrogance and jealousy and pride brought them into conflict with the Creator God.  The rest we know is history.  HOW many of you realise that there is only One God, One Son, One Holy Spirit.  There is not a myriad of gods to worship only One.  God himself tells us that the Lucifer himself is a fallen angel and is destined to the great abyss along with his minions and all those that choose to follow his ways, that is to stand in defiance of the Great God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob.  To stand and shake your fist at God and to say that He does not exsist is like saying the planet we live on does not exsist – for with out God – We would not exsist.  He created us out of the dust of this very planet and breathed life into his nostrils, God led his first created man to a place of beauty and all he had to do was to trust God and let him take care of him.  God took so much care of him that he gave him a mate, a female from his very own side and presented her to him for his companionship.  He gave them the command to go forth and multiply and subdue and take care of the planet God had created for their home.

We have a lot to thank God for – without His word we would not be here, we would not be surrounded by such beauty, we would not even know of life. Nor the pleasure of being at one with anybody.  To share you dreams and hopes with another.  This God has done for us.  What have we  done for God.

We have turned our back on him, we have denied him, we have rediculed the very notion that He exsisted – we who are just carbon and water – just like a pot on a potters wheel.

He fashioned us to be human – he gave us everything for His pleasure and ours so that we may someday come back to the Father in full repentance and ask His forgiveness and Turn from our evil ways and once again recognise that He the Creator God is worthy to be recognised.

Do you want to wait until the next disaster before you will finally recognise He is in control, of all the volcanos, earthquakes, sea levels, winds.  He can make it snow in the summer and rain in the winter and create huge fire balls on the land.  Who are we.  Will we never learn – just think that when the volcano erupted in greenland/iceland, it shut down all the airports, caused so much misery – what could man do against that except wait it out.  Well God is behind everything to wake the people up to start to look up for your redemption is certainly drawing nigh.  We are in a season of great perplexcity, great anxiety has gripped the hearts and minds of man.  This was always had been spoken about in the Word of God.  The books of the Prophets whom God had chosen to send to the nation of Israel to bring them back to the Father was very much aware of our times.  Warning us of things to come if we insist on disobeying and running againt God.

Do you think you can change yourself  – God changes you from within.,  He leads you back to Himself and His ways, His teachings, His prophecy.  Yeshua the King of Israel and all the World will come in Victory and No one will stand in His way.

IT IS TIME TO STAND UP STAND UP FOR YESHUA FOR THE GLORY OF THE CROSS, LIFT HIGH HIS ROYAL BANNER HIS BATTLE IS NOT LOST.

He said it on the cross – it is finished – he defeated the grave, death and hades.  WE who are standing and waiting for His return understand that WE shall be changed into His likeness of the resurrection.  Where will you be.

The CARMEL ALERT Sept 7th 2012
A compilation of news reports from the past week for the information of those committed to praying
for the Restoration of Israel & the Jewish People.

David’s Comment: Against ALL Odds
Joshua 23:10 “One man of you shall chase a thousand, for the LORD your God is He who fights for you, as He has promised you. (NKJ)

Over the last few weeks both Josie and I have written about the existential dangers that the tiny nation of Israel currently faces. In the natural it looks very bad for Israel’s future – hopeless in fact. Hizbollah has 50,000 plus missiles ready to use against Israel and Iran openly declares the annihilation of the Jewish state. The Western world, even the United States, has deserted Israel, the only democratic country in the Middle East. Just this week it was reported that President Obama sent a message, through 2nd parties, to the Iranians, clearly stating that the US will not assist Israel if there is an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilties. The US Joint Chief of Staff said in a speech that he gave in London last Friday ” that in the event of an attack on Iran, Israel is on her own.” The world is showing its true anti-Semitic colours. The majority of the leaders who are pulling away from Israel would deny that, but if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, its a duck !!!

There is nothing new under the sun – once again Israel is facing an extremely serious threat to her existence. It’s nothing new, it has been this way since the Hebrews were slaves in Egypt. The Jewish people have faced a long line of potential destroyers – the Pharaoh, Haman, Antiochus Epiphanes, King Herod, Napolean, Hitler, Arafat, & the PLO, Black September, Islamic Jihad, the PFLP, Hamas, Hizbollah and now Ahmedinejhad. As individual organisations they may be much smaller and less powerful that the State of Israel, but together they pose a formidable enemy whose combined and clearly stated goal is the total destruction or anhililation of Israel and the Jewish people.

As I said at the outset, in the natural Israel’s futute looks to be in serious jeopardy, However, whether she knows it or not (and sadly most Israelis dont know it) Israel has an unseen ace up her sleeve – The Holy One of Israel. The God of Israel created and holds the entire Universe in His hands. And the Universe is unfathomably gi-normous. It is impossible for the human brain to even begin to comprehend the power of the Universe. If the God of Israel created and controls this power, it makes sense that He is MORE POWERFUL than His creation. And He loves Israel, and many times in His Word makes covenant based promises to protect His Land and His people.

Now back to the title AGAINST ALL ODDS …….. Israel’s 3800 year history is akin to the story of David & Goliath. There had always been a ‘Goliath’ out there mocking, cursing and threating to destroy God’s people. Goliath thought he was going to engage little David, but he was really facing off against the God of Israel, and he very soon lost his head, bring victory to Israel and total defeat to the Philistines. The scenario has been exactly the same right throughout Israel’s history, and it is repeating itself in our time. We can clearly see God’s miraculous intevention as recently as the Six Day War of June 1967. Israel was attacked simultaneously by Egypt, Syria and Jordan. Israel was vastly outnumbered in every way and it must have looked hopeless at the time. The world stood in shock and awe as the attacking armies crumbled and the war was over in SIX days. The Israeli army is good, but it is not that good. The God of Israel moved His mighty hand and Israel’s victory was nothing short of a miracle.

Tiny Israel is surrounded by a sea of 280 million Muslims who are sworn enemies mocking, curising and threatening to destroy her. The God we believe in changes not. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. He has always intervened to destroy Israel’s enemies and we have great confidence and security that He will do the same today. The Bible is full of God’s amazing promises for Israel. Here are just a few of them ……………

Jeremiah 31:35-36 Thus says the LORD, who gives the sun for a light by day, the ordinances of the moon and the stars for a light by night, who disturbs the sea, and its waves roar (The LORD of hosts is His name): “If those ordinances depart from before Me, says the LORD, then the seed of Israel shall also cease from being a nation before Me forever.” (NKJ)

Psalm 20:6 Now I know that the LORD saves His anointed; he will answer him from His holy heaven with the saving strength of His right hand.

Psalm 2:1-6 Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us.” He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; the LORD shall hold them in derision. Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, and distress them in His deep displeasure: “Yet I have set My King on My holy hill of Zion.” (NKJ)

Psalm 33:10-11 The LORD brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; he makes the plans of the peoples of no effect. The counsel of the LORD stands forever, the plans of His heart to all generations. (NKJ)

Exodus 5:3 The LORD is a man of war; the LORD is His name. (NKJ)

Psalm 18:13-14 The LORD also thundered from heaven, and the Most High uttered His voice, hailstones and coals of fire. He sent out His arrows and scattered the foe, lightnings in abundance, and He vanquished them. (NKJ)

Zechariah 9:15-16 The LORD of hosts will defend them; they shall devour and subdue with slingstones. They shall drink and roar as if with wine; they shall be filled with blood like basins, like the corners of the altar. The LORD their God will save them in that day, as the flock of His people. For they shall be like the jewels of a crown, lifted like a banner over His land– (NKJ)

Ps 129:5-6 Let all those who hate Zion be put to shame and turned back. Let them be as the grass on the housetops, which withers before it grows up, NKJ

Isaiah 60:12 For the nation and kingdom which will not serve you shall perish, and those nations shall be utterly ruined. (NKJ)

One last thought to encourage all of us who have a blood covenant relationship with Israel’s God. Whether we are ‘natural branches’ or ‘grafted-in branches’
(Rom 11:17) we are all fellow citizens (Eph 2:19) – in God’s eyses we are ALL Israel and every promise of protection, provision, salvation and victory belong to every one of us. As much as natural Israel can and should expect God to keep His covenant promises, we should do the same. He is the Lord our God and He changes not, and His promises are YES and AMEN. The victory is ours, but the battle belongs to the LORD.

The Lord bless you as you bless Israel by standing in defense of her right to exist on the land given to the Jewish people by the God of Israel. Lets pray that Israel will turn back to their God. Do not be silent at this most strategic time, but share this with your fellow Christians, share it with your pastors, and with anyone you have a chance to speak to. Lets also pray for breakthrough to the Muslims, and please remember to pray for all of the soldiers in the IDF – they are defending and fighting for the soon coming Kingdom of God.

Shabbat Shalom …. David & Josie

THIS WEEKS NEWS REPORTS

1. PM Netanyahu Slams President Obama Over Iran Israel Today News Sept 2nd
Israel was abuzz over the weekend with news that a recent meeting between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US Ambassador Daniel Shapiro became heated after the Israeli leader criticized US President Barack Obama for not doing enough to thwart Iran’s nuclear program. The Netanyahu-Shapiro meeting took place behind closed doors two weeks ago. Last Friday, Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot cited unnamed sources present at the meeting as saying “sparks and lightning were flying” when the two men discussed the Iran situation. According to the sources, Netanyahu openly blasted what he called Obama’s ineffectual policies vis-a-vis Iran’s nuclear program, which Israel views as an existential threat considering the Iranian leadership’s very public declarations that it wishes to annihilate the Jewish state.
Netanyahu and many other Israeli leaders have been vocal in their criticism of Obama and the entire international community for punishing Iran with little more than words while the Islamic Republic has continued its defiant nuclear program with only minor hindrance. Netanyahu reportedly told Shapiro that instead of worrying about whether or not Israel will strike Iran, Obama should focus on the root of the problem and put some real pressure on Tehran. At that point, Shapiro was said to have broken diplomatic protocol and snapped back at Netanyahu, insisting that the Israeli leader was misrepresenting Obama’s position. Shapiro then reiterated Obama’s promise to not allow Iran to attain nuclear weapons, to which Netanyahu responded, “Time is running out.”
Please pray for wisdom and Divine guidance for PM Netanyahu and the Israeli military leaders

2. Israel May Have to Deal With Iran on her Own
US Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman General Martin Dempsey went to London last week to deliver a warning to the Israelis and an encouragement to Iran, telling the Israelis that the United States would “not be complicit” in an Israeli attack and telling the Iranians that Israel doesn’t have the muscle to stop its nuclear program. “Distancing himself from any Israeli plan to bomb Iran, Dempsey said such an attack would “clearly delay but probably not destroy Iran’s nuclear programme”. He added: “I don’t want to be complicit if they [Israel] choose to do it.” That comment sent a shockwave through the Israeli establishment, but it was the rest of Dempsey’s remarks that pretty much confirmed that as far as the Obama administration is concerned, Israel is on its own. “Dempsey said he did not know Iran’s nuclear intentions, as intelligence did not reveal intentions. What was clear, he said, was that the “international coalition” applying pressure on Iran “could be undone if [Iran] was attacked prematurely”. Sanctions against Iran were having an effect, and they should be given a reasonable opportunity to succeed.” Please pray that other nations will come to Israel’s side in the event of a conflict with Iran

3. Obama Likely to Make Netanyahu Pay If He Wins Election Ynet News Sept 2nd
Israeli cabinet ministers who spoke to Ynet, said they believe Obama will make Netanyahu pay if the former is reelected as America’s president in November. At present, Obama cannot risk being seen as creating a rift between America and Israel, lest he lose the votes of most Jews and many Christians. But after the election, Obama will have no such constraints. “The US elections are in two months, and there is no doubt that President Barack Obama, if he is reelected, will make Netanyahu pay for his behavior. It will not pass quietly,” one minister told Ynet. Already there are indications that Obama is taking a more hostile position toward Israel. For instance, next month Israel and the US were scheduled to hold their largest ever joint military exercise, which was to be largely focused on confronting a major ballistic missile threat (read: Iran). But over the weekend, the Pentagon suddenly and significantly downsized American participation in the exercise. “Relations between Israel and the US have soured” as a result of differing views on the urgency of the Iran situation, concluded another cabinet minister. Lets pray that God’s will be done in the upcoming US elections

4. “Palestinian” Worker Admits Poisoning Jewish Family Israel Today News Sept 2nd
A Palestinian Arab man recently admitted to poisoning a Jewish family with intent to kill simply because he “hates Jews.” Israeli courts on Sunday cleared for publication details of the attack, which occurred last October in the central Israel town of Raanana. The suspect, 46-year-old Adnan Nasaara, was a construction worker who had previously done some work at the victims’ house. The Lerner family initially thought they were the victims of a simple robbery, and called police to the scene. But during the post-break-in interview, Eyal Lerner and one of the police officers collapsed after drinking water from the kitchen.
Eyal’s wife, Yifat, and their 2 year old child also became ill. All 4 were hospitalized, with Eyal spending a week in intensive care in serious condition. Police later found that most of the drinks and staple food items in the Lerner’s kitchen had been laced with highly toxic pesticides. Officers later traced the robbery to Nasaara and two other suspects. They found pesticides in Nasaara’s house. Police told Israel’s Ynet news portal that Nasaara admitted to the poisoning, saying he did it because he “hates Jews.” Officials are now describing the incident at nationalistically motivated, or, in other words, a terrorist attack.
The attack again brings to light two important aspects of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. First, Israel is constantly criticized for restricting the freedom of movement in Judea and Samaria (the so-called “West Bank”), and especially for denying Palestinians easy access to Israeli-controlled areas. But most of those restrictions are new, having only been implemented over the past decade due to rising Palestinian violence. The poisoning of the Lerner family demonstrates why Israel is so careful with access to Jewish areas. Second, it has become increasingly important to limit access because the Palestinian Authority has so utterly failed to educate its population to view the Jews as neighbors and partners. In fact, it has done the opposite, and many Palestinians today, like Mr. Nasaara, view it as a national and even a religious duty to take the lives of Jews, be they men, women or children.
Please pray for the full recovery of the Lerner family and the police officer who was poisoned

5. Six Killed in Gaza Border Clashes ICEJ News Sept 6th
The border between Israel and the Hamas ruled Gaza Strip erupted overnight Wednesday, with the IDF repelling two attempted attacks and killing six Palestinian gunman, according to medical sources in the Strip. The first incident involved the IAF attacking a rocket squad Wednesday night as it was about to fire its weapons into Israel from the central Gaza Strip. Several hours later, IDF ground troops struck a terror cell as it attempted to plant an explosive device on the Gaza border. The IDF Spokesman’s Office stated that “the IDF will not tolerate any attempt to harm Israeli civilians, and will operate against anyone who uses terror against the State of Israel. The Hamas terror organization is solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.
Please pray that all terrorsts and potential terrorsits be stopped before they can take innocent lives

6. Egypt Replacing Tanks with Armored Vehicles in Sinai ICEJ News Sept 5th
A security source confirmed on Tuesday that the Egyptian army has withdrawn at least 20 tanks from the Sinai Peninsula in response to Israeli protests that their participation in anti-terrorism operations violated the 1979 Camp David peace agreement. The source also said that light armored vehicles are being deployed in place of the tanks, but did not specify if all the deployed tanks had been withdrawn. “The operation is entering a new phase that requires different equipment capable of facing and handling the situation in Sinai,” a military official told Reuters on Tuesday. Please pray that Israel will be aware of any planned attacked coming from the Sinai

7. Israeli Minister of Defence: Attack on Iran May Not be Necessary Ha Aretz News Sept 7th
Defense Minister Ehud Barak hinted Thursday that there may be no need for anIsraeli strike on Iran, due to the unprecedented concentration of U.S. forces in the Persian Gulf. Barak spoke after meeting with Admiral James Winnefeld, Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who is visiting Israel. “Israel retains its right to make sovereign decisions and the United States respects that,” Barak said at an Atzmaut party gathering. “However, one should not ignore the impressive preparations by the Americans to counter Iran on all fronts.” Barak made the comments after he and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu were briefed by U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and National Security Advisor Tom Donilon regarding U.S. preparations for a possible confrontation with Iran. Please pray that this is indeed the case and that a war with Iran can be averted

When we reject Israel


Will americal forsake Israel all nations are beholden to Israel.

When God called Abraham out of Chaldea he gave him a promise that all nations would be blessed by His seed.  From his loins gave the blood line to Yeshua in human terms, Yeshua was out of the line David.  Without Yeshua then humanity would not have a Saviour. God called Israel out to be His Holy Nation, for all nations to have a witness of the Greatness of Gods Powers in the Nation. When we consider the greatness of Gods power and his majesty.  God gave Israel the lifetsyle plan – not all live by the plan that God gave us. 

However, when we look closely at what God gave Moses- he shows through history when Israel obeyed God Israel prospered,  when Israel went against God and did not obey God and left off follwoing Gods teachings the nation of Israel went in to captivity and disperesed throughout the world.where they were persecuted and lost and in some cases assimilated into the nations – then God Said he would draw His people out of the Nations he has sent them to.

He gave the promise that when we bless Israel and pray for the peace of Jerusalem then we too enter the blessing of God on His people.

So as we look around our sociites we can see just how far the society has gone from being able to live in peace with our neighbour.  When Yeshua called us to love our enimies and pray for them – does not show you that they not our enemies but our brothers.  When we look at our fellow human beings as being fellow created by God in His own image then we can stop pointing the finger at our neighours.

All nations are from the Sons of Noah – this is something that people do not believe.  Yet in every nation on the planet there is a story of their beginnings after the flood and that although they may not full understand many nations have a story which can be traced back to the flood.  When we look at the line of humanity before the flood we can see that God had started them from the start of Humanity – He made us all – no matter whether we are chinese, japanees, portugues, french, spanish, russian or whatever nationality you may be, we are all from the same source, so whether you want to accept God or whether you choose to accept evolution we are from the same source.  God made life on Eath to commence, over milleniums. he put many life forms – which have been given to the planet for the development of the resources we now have available to us to day.  Without the dinasours and other living creatures we would not have oil, or coal from the ancient forests.We have all got our part to play in Gods plan for this beautiful planet.  We should be looing at ways to live in peace and harmony with each other and with the planet and the living creatures that are sharing this divine home that we have.

 

 

 

Hanukkah – Festival of Lights – Yeshua Light of the World


For me the celebration of Hanukkah has now given me a different meaning for this time of the year. I have found it really difficult to get to grips as to why people would want to celebrate a falsehood. For me, the celebration of christmas has no meaning as Christ was not born on December 25th – this is a day of celebration for the Pagan, Druids it was adopted by the church in order to try and share the birth of christ with the pagans, however, from my conversations with pagans who celebrate their Solstice they have no interest in the birth of christ – it means nothing to them – in fact from what I have experienced personally they laugh at the christian who consider it to be a holy day for them as the pagans know full well it is not anything to do with the Son of God – but rather the rebirth of the Sun – and fertility.

For me, I would rather celebrate Hanukkah as it is far more meaningful to me. For God enabled the oil to burn for 8 days while new oil was prepared – sanctified and purified to be burned in the restored temple – which was in the history of the Maccabees who discovered the ruined Temple and wanted to restore it – they asked God to maintain the oil and God did for 8 days while the preparations were being undertook. For me this is a real miracle – as people really were dedicated to God in believing that God could perform such a miracle. Today – people have seem to have lost their way in not asking God for help.

For me the celebration of the festival of Light means more to me as Christ is the Light of the World and He came to shine for us and show us the Way back to the Father Creator of all the Universe. Without the guiding light of Christ we would not have a way back. The Messiah came to show us the way – He is the Light of the Word – teaching us His Commandments, His rulings and His obedience. In keeping with the Word of God as He is the Word made flesh he came and dwelt amongst us. His light shines eternally –

Yeshua was with God at the beginning of Creation – He is the Word of God made flesh who dwelt amongst us to show us the Way – He is the Way to the Life and Truth and only through Him do we have Salvation, and remission for our sins, He was ransomed on our behalf and nailed to a tree so that we could be given the opportunity to be reconcilled back to the Father – Creator of All – It is by HIs Word that we are here at all.  He brought everything into being by His Word –

We are called to make ourselves ready – the story of the 10 virgins who had their lamps is a clear indication as to how important that we have our wicks and lamps trimmed ready for His return.  The story of the virgins denotes our readiness to be prepared to recieve Him as our bridegroom and to walk with Him when he calls us to be with Him.

We are to come before the Father and ask for forgiveness for our lack of faith and believe in Him.  Today – people are being led to believe that Santa Claus is the one who can give hope to the people – only the Messiah and God can do that – Santa Claus cannot stop the rains, nore halt the hurricanes, nor feed the five thousands – only the Messiah can do that.  To teach children to follow Santa Claus and to celebrate by giving him cookies – which do not get eaten except by the parents of the children who place their presents under the tree – which also is an abomination to God – another pagan ritual which has been integrated into the so called celebration of christs birth day –

Yeshua came to give us life more abundantly by our following in His footsteps in obedience to God holy word and teachings.  The Ten Commandments, the keeping of the Shabbat and the Holy Days that God has ordained – which had all been thrown away from the early church because they did not want to be associated with anything Jewish – how foolish – for by throwing it away we are actually throwing away the promise which was given to Israel – not to any other group of people were given such great gifts, knowledge and wisdom – when Moses came down the mountain with the Ten Commandments and found the people in rebellion already against God he was utterly dismayed and threw the Word down – only to have to go again to God and plead for forgiveness for the people and ask God to again give to him the Word which was to give a light to the path of men.  When you discover the Truth behind the Ten Commandments and realise just how important they are to Mankind we would all be able to live in the Peace and Joy and Salvation that God promised to Israel if they choose to Follow His Way.

WE do have a choice – you only have to look into Deut to see the full picture of what would happen when we choose to follow God’s path – life, abundant food, happy homes, fruitful fields, is that not what people are looking for really.

However when we choose the other path of disobedience of denying God’s very existence, denying God’s power to heal the sick, bringing only shame and destruction on ourselves – He said that this would happen when we turn our backs on God.

The way Society is today with its blatant disregard for God’s Laws and teachings – denying Him, the world is facing such a massive destructive path ahead because of this.  God said He would shake the Heavens and the Earth – there would be floods, wars, earthquakes, famines, plagues – this is What God said he would allow to come on the earth because of mans disregard to His power, His Word, His Ways.

Far better to come to the Father and ask for forgiveness and aknowledge our unbelief and seek His face while there is yet still time.  Mankind is on a road to destruction – but those who call upon the name of the Lord in that day will be saved.  When we understand that by Turning back to the Father we have an opportunity to have a life filled with Joy, Peace and Abundance – do you not think that it is a much wiser course of action – to come back to the Creator and let Him shine His light into your hearts and minds and rediscover who He really is.

Reflections


As I sit upon my rooftop terrace doing my bible study surrounded by such beauty as mountains, sea and orchards, I praise God for his wonderful bounty.

As reading in Isaiah I reflect on the human condition of our relationship with each other and our relationship with God and Jesus.

I am amazed at how clear thinking and precise was Isaiah’s writings are, exposing the hypocrisy of his day and also it shows a real resemblance of what is happening today in many congregations and throughout the world in general.

When we take into account that God gave Moses the Commandments for people to live by it is amazing just how important that they are to man today, for without them we are lost, cut off from God and the blessings he wishes to pour out on us.

In Isaiah 28 V 23 – 29

Listen and hear my voice: pay attention, and hear what I say:

Does a farmer sowing keep ploughing forever?

Does he never stop breaking up and harrowing his land@

No – when he finished levelling it, he scatters his dill-seed, sows his cumin, puts wheat in rows, barley where it belongs, and plants buckwheat around the edges, because God has taught him this, have given him instruction.

Dill must not be threshed with a sledge or cartwheels driven over cumin, rather dill one beats with a stick and cumin with a flail.

When crushing grain for bread one doesn’t thresh it forever, one drives the horse and cart wheels over it but doesn’t crush it to powder.

This too comes from Adonai-Tzva-ot (God our Father) his counsel is wonderful, his wisdom great.

In Isaiah 29 V 9 –16

If you make yourselves stupid, you will stay stupid!

If you blind yourselves, you will stay blind!

You are drunk, but not from wine;

You are staggering but not from strong liquor.

For Adonai has poured over you a spirit of lethargy; he has closed your eyes (that is, the prophets) and covered your heads (that is, the seers),

For you this whole prophetic vision has become like the message in a sealed up scroll.

When one gives it to someone who can read and says “please read this,” he answers “I can’t, because it is sealed”.

If the scroll is given to someone who can’t read with the request, “please read this,” he says, “I can’t read.

Then Adonai said.

“Because these people approach me with empty words, and the honour they bestow on me is mere lip-service; while in fact they have distanced their hearts from me and their “fear of me” is just a mitzyah (commandment) of human origin- therefore, I will have to keep shocking these people with astounding and amazing things, until the “wisdom” of their “wise one’s” vanishes, and the “discernment” of their “discerning ones” is hidden away.

Woe to those who burrow down deep to hide their plans from Adonai (God).   They work in the dark and say to themselves “Nobody sees us, nobody knows us” How you turn things upside down!

Is the potter not better than the clay. Does something made say of its maker “He didn’t make me”

Does the product say of its producer, “He has not discernment”.

For me it is very clear that unless we start to take God seriously in the matter of His Commandments we shall not have peace – not at any price because we are failing to do His Will which he had created us for.

For people to actually try and deny the very existence of God is ludicrous because the evidence is so clearly all around us, man has not been able to duplicate any of the wonderful creations that God has done…

When we think of genetic engineering and the magnificent breakthrough’s that purports to have done – in the end they have not invented anything new – God is the master Genetic Engineer – he is the Creator of all.

The medical profession are unable to duplicate limb replacements or anything like that, even when they do produce some sort of replacement it does not always work efficiently.

Whenever anyone is seeking help from sources other than God they are in effect seeking help from Egypt which God makes very clear is not the way forward

In Isaiah 30 v 1-5

“Woe to the rebellious children” says Adonai (God)

“They make plans, but the plans are not mine, they develop alliances, but not from my Spirit, in order to pile sin upon sin.

They go down to Egypt but don’t consult me, seeking refuge in Pharaoh’s protection, seeking shelter in Egypt’s shadow.

But Pharaoh’s protection will bring you shame, shelter in Egypt’s shadow will lead to disgrace. Though his princes are at Tzoan and his envoys have reached Hannes, they all are disappointed, with a people that doesn’t help them, who give no assistance and no advantage only disappointment and disgrace.

When we read Egypt we can replace this with the World because it takes us away from seeking Gods face and grace to help us through any difficulties we may have, I know from experience how someone can get so caught up in seeking the way of the world that it ended with him taking his own life, instead of seeking the face of God and really trusting that God can and will pull you out of any difficult situation if you will only open up and take a step of faith, knowing that Jesus himself said that if you only have faith as small as a mustard seed it is enough to ask God for help.

I myself can testify to this fact as I was an unbeliever for many years, it took the threat of my own death to bring me to my senses and recognise that only God is able to pull people back, only when it is His time for them to come to that place, no one can be forced to come to God only God does the drawing to Himself.

However no matter what is happening in your own life just now it is important to know that God the Creator of all things is very much in charge and is very aware of all things that are happening on the earth and in the heavens – He himself is in control, He knows the ultimate end of Mankind.

Are we going to sit back and keep thinking that it does not matter because he does not see, WRONG HE DOES SEE and HE DOES KNOW.

Are we so arrogant as a species to believe that we can do better than God – AGAIN WRONG only God can give and take life, He is the author and finisher of all.

No matter what happens in life God is in Control always working in the background in our lives just letting us go our own merry way until we really do screw up. God is there for us all no matter where we are what we have done, how bad we may feel we are God knows your innermost being. He made you the person you are, it is up to you when he puts his hand on your life and starts to lead you in a direction to follow him through because he has only good things to give to you.

When God makes it plain for all to see.

In Isaiah 30 V 13 – 33

“Because you reject this word, trust in extortion and rely on deceit, this sin will become for you a crack bulging out high on a wall showing signs it is ready to fall; then suddenly, all at once, it breaks”.

He will break it like a clay pot, ruthlessly shattering it into pieces so tiny not even a potsherd remains for taking fire from the fireplace or scooping water from the cistern.

For this is what Adonai Eliohim (God) the Holy One of Israel says:

“Returning and resting is what will save you; calmness and confidence will make you strong – but you want none of this!

‘No!’ you say, ‘We will flee on horseback!’

Therefore you shall surely flee and ‘We will ride on swift one’s !’ So your pursuers will be swift.

A thousand will flee at the threat of one, you will flee at the threat of five until you are left isolated, like a flagstaff on a mountaintop, like a banner on a hill.

Yet Adonai (God) is just waiting to show you favour, he will have pity on you from on high; for Adonai is a God of Justice; happy are all who wait for him!

People of Tziyon (Zion), who live in Yerushalayim, (Jerusalem) you will weep no more.  At the sound of your cry, he will show you his grace; on hearing it, he will answer you.

Though Adonai may give you but bread and water, and not very much of that; your teacher will no longer hide himself, but with your own eyes you will see your teacher.

With ears you will hear a word from behind you; “This is the way; stay on it, whether you go to the right or the left. You will treat as unclean your silver-covered idols and your cast metal images plated as gold; you will throw them away, like menstrual cloths; you will say to them, “Get out of here”

The He will give you rain for the seed you use to sow your land, and the food that comes from the ground will be rich and abundant.

When that day comes, your cattle will graze in spacious pastures.

The oxen and donkeys that work the land will eat a tasty mixture, winnowed free of chaff, spread by pitchfork and shovel.

On every high mountain and lofty hill will be streams and flowing brooks, on a day of great slaughter when the towers fall.

Moreover, the light of the moon will be as bright as the light of the sun and the light of the sun will be seven times stronger, like the light of seven days (in one) on the day Adonai binds up the wounds of his people and heals the bruise caused by the blow.

Here comes the name of Adonai from afar, his anger burning, in thick rising smoke. His lips are full to the brim with fury, his tongue a consuming fire. His breath is like a racing torrent that rises up to the neck to sift the nations with a sieve of destruction, and put a bridle in the peoples’ mouths to lead them astray. Your song will be like one that is ung on a night when a holy feast is kept and your hearts will be happy as if walking to the sound of the fulute to the mountain of Adonai (God) to the Rock of Israel.

Adonai (God) will make his glorious voice heard and he will reveal his arm descending with furious anger in a flaming firestorm, with cloudbursts, tempests and hailstones, For Adonai’s voice will terrify Ashur, as with his sceptre he strikes them down. Every sweep of the punishing rod that Adonai imposes on him will be to tambourines and lyres as he brandishes his arm against them in battle. For the Tofet fire pit has been long ready prepared for the king, made large and deep with plenty of wood and blazing with fire; like a stream of sulphur. Adonai’s breath sets it aflame.

When reading this today, it became very apparent to me that no matter how we believe ourselves to be “progressive” by denying God and His power, we in fact are only leaving ourselves wide open for more trouble.

Better we come back to God and repent of our natural distaste for discipline (God Discipline) and His Laws and really recognise that His WAYS are the only ways for us to live by.

This precious Sabbath on which I write this piece has been really blessed as I have had the time to reflect and enjoy the fact that Isaiah had faced a population who were just as rebellious as we are today. No wonder God had to do something really incredible to give us the opportunity to come back and have the chance to be transformed into his likeness instead of living like animals.

The people in the world today just seem to be hell bent on destroying everything they touch, all that is lovely they want to try to make into something ugly.

When we look at our surroundings and watch the destruction of our rain forests and destroying ways of lives of so many peoples in so called primitive cultures – they at least have the respect for life and recognise that they are part of the cycle. Today, modern man seems to have forgotten that we are also part of the cycle of life on this planet.

When we look back over history – bearing in mind we are talking His –Story – God story of this wonderful planet, it is amazing that we survived at all. God is gracious and loving and kind and is waiting for us to turn back to him and ask for his forgiveness for our sins, crimes against the planet and ourselves.

When are we going to wakes up and realise that we are all here together we are all here with a common goal to live our lives to the full and the betterment of ourselves and each other. What better way could there be than to live by the Code of Life that God gave us through Moses, the Ten Commandments are the most important Life Rules you could possibly live by.

Do feel free to contact me to pray with you or help you find the information you need to challenge your own bible study.

I myself have been doing a bible study course with Living Church of God, I have found inspiring and challenging. However the reading I did today I was lead into it by God and have found it a really challenging experience.

WE ARE ALL IN HERE TOGETHER.
