Looking for biblical answers instead of traditional ones? Tired of the same old emotional roller coaster instead of spiritual substance?

Our newsletter, Kingdom Thoughts, will encourage and challenge you to think for yourself.

If you have entered into covenant with the Almighty through the instructions (Torah) in his word, you have received of his Spirit. That Spirit is known in Scripture as the Spirit of Truth. He is God and he promises to lead us into ALL truth. If you haven't or do not know what God's covenant in the blood of Messiah is all about, we will gladly share those instructions with you so that as many of us as possible can prepare for the coming time of great trouble. There is true hope in these times, and it is all in knowing what YHVH has to say about all that is happening in the present-day world. We invite you to fellowship with us.

Shalom!

                                                        We Have Forgotten

Isa 49:14 But Zion said, YHVH hath forsaken me, and my Master hath forgotten me.

Isa 49:15  Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.
Isa 49:16  Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.


YHVH has never forgotten his people whom he foreknew. He has not forsaken Zion or cast away his inheritance called Israel. It is we who forgot our true identity. It is we who forsook the statutes of our Sovereign One. We played the harlot with Assyria and Babylon. We neglected the call to be separate from the nations. For this, he divorced Israel and sowed us in Assyria; that we might become the fullness of Gentiles. Then he punished Judah for their idolatry and sent them to Babylon where they became known as Jews and invented a religion of their own making that became their blindness. Yet, he returned them to the Land until the time of Messiah; and he patiently suffered their faithlessness until the day that he said, "It is finished!" He put the axe to the tree and there sprang up a shoot from the root of Jesse. Its branches, some of them grafted in from the wild olive tree, became the new vine whose roots were of the good olive tree. This was the wheat sown in the field that was to produce and promote the righteousness of YHVH because it was of the seed of righteousness.

But the prince of a people came and corrupted the integrity and set-apart nature of the wheat field. He sowed tares in abundance so that the roots of the tares would entangle and strangle the roots of the wheat. His abominations were established as truth by force and violence. All who would not bow to his lies were persecuted, tortured, and murdered. His abominable tares became the masters of the field and thought they would conquer the world and dominate creation. But servants of the Master of the field caught a glimpse of the unrighteousness and fought to make it right. The tares increased their persecution of the wheat and continued to bask in the sunlight that was meant for the wheat. Then the latter rain came and the downtrodden wheat revived and the nourishment from its roots began to reach it and restore it. And the war for separation from the tares continues to this day. Many casualties have been suffered because of disobedience and unbelief. Many more will yet be suffered according to the words of the Prophets. But the words of the Prophets also tell us that Israel and Judah will become one in YHWH's hand again. The wheat will choose its own roots and the tares will wither and be gathered for burning as they reach the end of their season. The wheat will be harvested and become the source of nourishment for the kingdom that will never end.

This is the Gospel we have forgotten and the reason we are so scattered and divided. YAH has come in the flesh and has given us the name of YAHUSHA as the only salvation to men under heaven. Yet many will reject that name through their own concupiscence and perish by their own will. Many will abruptly find themselves fighting against that name because they loved their own opinion more than they loved the one who called them into this grace. They will hear the truth and reject it because it does not align itself with their fables and invented names. But Zion will remember who they are and they will go forth gathering their sheaves with rejoicing even in the midst of turbulent times. They will gather the harvest into the storehouse of YAH and await the moment of visitation when the door is opened into that coming millennium of peace and prosperity. Yahusha is the hope of Israel and Zion is from whence the deliverer shall come. Let all who proclaim a false Gospel be anathema!

In about three months, there are those who will go to a sunrise service sponsored by their church. They will then attend church later in the morning and then go home to enjoy their Easter ham with all the trimmings. The family, and perhaps the whole church, will get together after the meal to watch the children gather brightly colored Easter eggs while they laugh and enjoy their afternoon before the evening service. The Pastor will most likely bring out the traditional message of "The seven Words of Christ" or something similar. He will endeavor to inspire the people of his congregation with phrases and graphic descriptions that have the power to move some of them to tears. They will all go home feeling that they have remembered the death, burial, and resurrection of the living Messiah.

But the truth will be that they have mixed the holy with the profane and have succeeded in helping to keep the people in the dark about the truth. That truth is that everything about Easter is a lie! That is because Easter is not Passover! Passover was instituted in Egypt by YHVH on a particular day and under particular rules (his statutes) that have great significance for his overall plan for his people. Easter is the name of the pagan goddess of fertility, war, and sex. It is an Anglo-Saxon name translated from a Babylonian name; the name of Ishtar. It is she and her son Tammuz who are celebrated on that day by rendering worship to the sun god as he supposedly rises in the east. Then Tammuz is remembered by eating the flesh of a pig because Tammuz was killed by a wild boar while hunting. Even before the day of Ishtar, her faithful get together and weep for Tammuz for forty days and promise to give up something they like for that period of time. On the afternoon of that day, the pagans remember the fable of Ishtar and how she once arrived late in bringing spring. As a result, a bird that was there when spring was supposed to start, nearly froze to death. Out of compassion, she turned it into a rabbit that could lay colored eggs on one day out of the year; her day! And so they go out and gather the colored eggs that Ishtar's Rabbit supposedly hid for them. This is what Ishtar's Sun Day (Easter) is all about.

So while the teachers, preachers, and pastors of mainline denominationalism lead the people down a path of concupiscence that leads to destruction, Scripture still declares: "Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my pathway." And the Prophet Daniel was told, "Those with understanding will understand, but the ungodly will never understand." What good will all their religiosity do them when they hear the words, "I know you not"? How shall they escape after having neglected so great a salvation and relegated the word of the living YHVH to the status of a fable? It is written: "Because you have kept the word of my patience and have not denied my name, I will also keep you in that hour that is coming to try the hearts of all those who live upon the earth."

No, and a thousand times, NO! YHVH has not forgotten Zion. He longs for the day when the majority of the remnant of his people will turn to his word and repent from their foolishness. The plan has already been drawn and the foundation is laid. It awaits us to do our part by following the blueprints of the Architect. Beloved, let us not fight against the truth; because he said, "I am...The Truth."

Be blessed!
