Your thoughts, comments, and questions are greatly welcome!
Is there something about Yahweh that you have never quite understood?
Is there one of Yeshua’s teachings that confuse you?
Do you have problems in your own life, and you want to know how Yeshua would solve them?
Are you in trouble and need help?
MESSAGE ME, and I will do what I can. There are many possibilities for Yahweh to work in your life, and I can help you find HIM and help you find the path HE wants you to be on. If I can’t do something to help, we can work together and with Yahweh’s help, we will find someone to help you. Yahweh loves us, and HE wants to help you get through what troubles you, no matter how great or small.
I have SEEN Yahweh wok in the lives of those who love HIM. I am a living example of HIS power to change people’s lives, and I wan to freely share that with you. Yeshua was the ULTIMATE example of how loving and faithful Yahweh is to those who love HIM. And if we love Yahweh like Yeshua loved HIM, we will also be resurrected into eternal life! AMEN!
When Yahweh created you, He connected to you by way of His love, and it is the most free and gentle tether, and only He can sever it, and He will only sever it if you desire that He do so. Your heart will determine what Yahweh will do with your relationship with Him. And what is in your heart is what comes out of your mouth, just as is what is in your mind is what you do with your body. If you judge yourself against the standard that Yahweh gave us when he sent Yeshua to us, then you will know who you re in relation to who you should be in the eyes of Yahweh.
Those of you who can help, please do. One dollar, two dollars, a loaf of bread, a helping hand, you must act to bring Yahweh’s Kingdom on Earth.
if you will listen, He will speak
How do you have a relationship with anything? You establish contact and grow the attachment bond. God has already established contact, now it is up to you to reciprocate.
How can you know for sure He exists? Talk to Him and see what happens. I can’t give you the secret incantation, nor are there spells, incense, or a special recipe to summon God; there is none.
Jesus taught us how to pray. Go into your room (anywhere to be in private and free from distraction), and talk to Him. You can say the Lord’s Prayer until you are comfortable speaking to Him fully from your heart.
Matthew 6:9-13 9 “Pray, then, in this way:
‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. 10 ‘Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. 11 ‘Give us this day our daily bread. 12 ‘And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 ‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’
Fill your heart with love, and before every thought, word, and action, ask yourself, “Is this coming from a place of love?”
Walk in love and talk to God. This is how I know. The more I do this, the more I understand life. Like I said, there is no special recipe. It takes time and effort on your part, because God is always ready to meet you where you need to be met.
let’s be reasonable
If we make the claim that the Bible is inerrant, we invite people to prove us otherwise, and so we create lifetime skeptics that can not move past our alleged Biblical inerrancy to see the message of love and hope contained within its pages.
From time to time, I participate in lively debates with people who label themselves as atheist or agnostic. Although both sides bring up great points, invariably, one side makes known its desire for “proof” of the other side’s claim. Because I am not so closed-minded as to think there is not evidence for God’s non-existence, I can concede that there is no definitive “proof” of God’s existence (for us, at this time and point in history – in Jesus time, I would surmise that those who knew Jesus could not deny God’s existence). But what we do have are mountains upon mountains of evidence.
God’s most phenomenal creation is not an accident
People have a lot of questions when it comes to where humanity and life on Earth came from. Did life originate in a Martian comet that crashed into earth billions of years ago? Did We come from a pool of primordial ooze? Did God create it all in 6 days from nothing? Did God create things a little at a time, over many, many years? Well, its a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
It’s hard, and it doesn’t get any easier. People talk about taking their “path” in life. For Christians, and those who believe in God, Jesus said there are two paths. The first path leads to eternal life, and the other path leads to destruction. He also says that the second path, the one that leads to destruction, is well-traveled, and many people choose that path. Few find the path that leads to eternal life. Few find it. So, it should never come as a surprise that most people in the world transgress against their brothers and sisters. Even most of those who say they love God and say they follow Jesus hurt others and do not seek forgiveness, nor do they repent. Yes, we are outnumbered, but don’t worry about it! Pray for them and guard your heart, but keep it open to the fact that they might come to know and love God. Do NOT take comfort in the fact that those people will face God’s judgement; you should mourn for them, as they are dead. But we should rejoice that with God all things are possible; there is always a chance that our brothers and sisters will be born again. We must be committed to helping anyone who truly desires to know God.
Our purpose is to love God and to love one another. That’s it. And if people would just love one another with altruistic charity, we would solve all of humanity’s problems. We have the technology, the intelligence, the means, and God’s blessing to make the world a better place.
So, there are two options: eternal life or destruction. If we are to receive the gift of eternal life, it is obviously a good thing, since it only comes from God. We will not be sorry to be with God after we die. If we sacrifice everything we have, here, on Earth, to be with God, isn’t it worth it? Isn’t it worth it to lose your life in order to be with God, forever? If we believe what Jesus teaches is true, then we have nothing to worry about. Do not fear the one who can kill the body, but fear the One who can destroy the soul.
Take the narrow path that leads to the narrow gate, because it opens up to eternal life. But be diligent, because there are few who enter through the narrow gate. Remember, as you walk down that life path, there are many more people in the world who choose to take the wide path. Many more choose destruction than eternal life, and their words and actions show us so. They will hurt you and move on with their lives as if nothing happened. If we can truly and fully accept this, life becomes easier, but much harder in the sense that you now see and know that many of your brothers and sisters will not be with us in the life to come, and you must continue to live with that knowledge. But God is fair, and He is just. We get what we deserve, but we should not worry. Love God with all your heart, and do your best to love your brothers and sisters. Always trust in God and His love for you.
but what is the final answer?
The Bible is just that – a collection of books. It was not written by one person – or by God -, nor is it meant to be read like a novel. The canonized Bible contains 66 books, written by at least 40 different authors between 900 BCE and 125 CE. It has been translated into many different languages, with each language having multiple versions. There are well over 100 complete English versions, which include the King James version (KJV), the Geneva Bible (GEN), and the New International Version (NIV), among others. For the purposes of this website and my personal study, I chose the New American Standard Bible (NASB).
“but I say to you…”
Recently, I watched a documentary on the state-sanctioned execution of Sean Sellers. When he was 17, he murdered his parents. He did not deny he committed the act. He was convicted and sentenced to death. He was executed by lethal injection at 12:17am, on February 4th, 1999 in an Oklahoma State Penitentiary. His case brought worldwide attention because of his age when he comitted the crimes – by law, he was still a child. Nevertheless, after numerous appeals and a clemency hearing, another life was taken from us. The entire situation is a terrible tragedy.
