So Saith the Lord …….
My Precious Children, remember My Words I spoke to you in the presence of your forefathers. I spoke of mockers, persecutors and tormentors that would oppress My Body in the final days. I also Spoke of a great deception of “False Shepards” led by the “Great Deceiver”. This deception would cause many to walk after their own ungodly lusts and desires, rejecting My Way, Truth and Life. There will also be “Ravenous Wolves” that would lead astray My sheep that have separated themselves from Me. These lost sheep do this as they seek to fulfill their sensual and fleshy desires rejecting My call of Holiness in their lives.
While they continue to allow themselves to be blinded by this deception they can never hope to be possessed by My Spirit Of eternal Life. They also will never achieve the freedom peace and security enjoyed by My full indwelling presence in their Body and Soul.
Prepare yourself My Children by seeking Spiritual Holiness over that of earthly desires and riches. Do this by Creating a lifestyle of unceasing Prayer, Supplication and Worship in and of My Word, Spirit and Truth.
If you earnestly desire to be My manifest Sons and Daughters then you must receive the new wine skin I have prepared for you. My Spirit will fill that skin with this new-wine as I begin the process of fully reproducing Myself in you.
You In-turn you will teach others of like and precious faith the narrow path that I require you to walk through “My Word of My Spirit and by My Truth”.
You My Children are to be My new living testimonies as My Spirit Quicken’s your mortal bodies. I will then fully manifest Myself in and through you thereby completing My Purpose.
“I will see through your eyes, hear with your ears, touch with you hands, walk with your feet, and speak with your mouth”.
Though My unearned grace and your faith in Me as your savior, You will possess Me and the seed of My Spirit. As You accept Me as the Lord of your life I will Possess you and begin the process of Quickening your mortal bodies into one born of My Spirit. This new Spiritual Body is designed to obtain the eternal Life that you so desperately seek.
Fleshy man cannot and will not inherit My kingdom and only those that are born of My Spirit can truly possess Me, As I possess them. Only My manifest Sons and Daughters will hear My voice and put on My clothes of Immortality, ultimately residing with Me in My Heavenly Kingdom. Amen.
End of Revelation given to me through God’s Spirit. On this day of Our Lord 12/24/2017
Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn. Matthew 13:24-30
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
And he spake also a parable unto them; No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old. And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish. But new wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved. No man also having drunk old wine straightway desireth new: for he saith, The old is better.
So Saith the Lord, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. John 3:5-8
And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
1 Corinthians 15:45-53
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. Amen.
I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Spirit, That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart. For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh: Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.
Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Yahshua concerning you. Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Yahshua Christ.
1 Thessalonians 5:14-23
For Yahweh so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son (Yahshua), that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God (Yahshua which means “Yah Is Saviour”). And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
Amen, Amen, Amen

Revelation 17:17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
Doctrines of Devils
This Says The Lord God of Jacob (Israel)
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their conscience seared with a hot iron, for when the Gentiles, who have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, they, not having the law, are a law unto themselves, which shows the work of the law written in their hearts,their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts between accusing and excusing one another.
Unto the pure, all things are pure; but unto those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
Be Of One and the Same Mind
Be of the same mind one toward another. Set not your mind on high things, but condescend to things that are lowly. Be not wise in your own conceits. make full my joy, that ye be of the same mind, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind; doing nothing through faction or through vainglory, but in lowliness of mind each counting other better than himself; not looking each of you to his own things, but each of you also to the things of others. Have this mind in you, which was also in Christ Yahshua. Have a good conscience, that, whereas they speak evil of you as of evildoers, they who falsely accuse may be ashamed by your good manner of life in Christ. For it is better, if the will of Yah be so, that ye suffer for welldoing than for evildoing. For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit.
Yahweh’s New Covenant with us
Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
“This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.” Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. Having therefore boldness, brethren, to enter into the Holiest by the blood of Yahshua, by a new and living Way, which He hath consecrated for us through the veil that is to say, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of Yah, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our brother washed with pure water. Let us hold fast to the profession of our faith without wavering for He is faithful who promised, Amen, Amen, Amen.

To The Glory Of God Alone
Reference: Revelation 17:7, 1 Timothy 4:1-2, Romans 2:14-15, Titus 1:15, Romans 12:16, Philippians 2:2-5, 1 Peter 3:8-18, Jeremiah 31:31-33, Hebrews 10:16-23.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; A broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.
If the first piece of dough is holy, the lump is also; and if the root is holy, the branches are too. But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive, were grafted in among them and became partaker with them of the rich root of the olive tree, do not be arrogant toward the branches; but if you are arrog…ant, remember that it is not you who supports the root, but the root supports you.
You will say then, “Branches were broken off so that I might be grafted in.” Quite right, they were broken off for their unbelief, but you stand by your faith. Do not be conceited, but fear; for if God did not spare the natural branches, He will not spare you, either. Behold then the kindness and severity of God; to those who fell, severity, but to you, God’s kindness, if you continue in His kindness; otherwise you also will be cut off. And they also, if they do not continue in their unbelief, will be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again. For if you were cut off from what is by nature a wild olive tree, and were grafted contrary to nature into a cultivated olive tree, how much more will these who are the natural branches be grafted into their own olive tree?
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. Know that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Amen, Amen, Amen
Yahweh God takes us in our brokenness and grafts (Inserts) us into His family, In doing this He shows the Agape Love He has for all of His creation. We should never think of ourselves as Superior to others, Or take for granted His enduring Love. Our Lord gives and our Lord takes away, for we are His creation and He is not ours. In our Brokenness, we are then made whole in Christ.

Reference: Psalm 51:17, Romans 11:16-24, Ephesians 2:10, Psalm 100:3
So Saith the Spirit of the Lord!
If the Spirit of Him who raised Yahshua (Jesus) from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Yahshua (Jesus) from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. So also it is written, “The first man, Adam, became a living soul.” The last Adam (Yahshua) became a life-giving spirit. And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, in which you formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air (Satan), of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest. But our God and Father Yahweh, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ by grace you have been saved. Flee from all things of the flesh, you man of God, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses. I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Yahshua (Jesus), who testified the good confession before Pontius Pilate, that you keep the commandment without stain or reproach until the appearing of our Lord Yahshua (Jesus) Christ, which He will bring about at the proper time—Yah who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone possesses immortality and dwells in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see. To Him be honor and eternal dominion!
Amen, Amen, Amen.

Reference: Romans 8:11, 1 Corinthians 15:45, Ephesians 2:1-5, 1 Timothy 6:11-16
God is Spirit and God is our Creator and Father, He came to earth in the form of His only Son Emanuel (God is with us).
Colossians 1:13-16 For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him.
Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” God created man in His own image, (The First Adam) in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. The second Adam, Yahshua (Jesus) the human form of Yahweh and who was and is the expressed Image of God (Yah). Hebrews 1:3 And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty (Yah) on high.
God (Yah) is not “Three Distinct Persons” as the diluted and corrupted Trinity Doctrine teaches.
Yah is a “Spiritual Being” with Four distinct attributes In his divine nature. And has a plethora of other qualities that He possesses. Yah (The Self-Existent One) is our Father Yahweh, He lives in and through His Son Yahshua (The Self-Existent One Is Our Savior) and Or (Yah Is Savior), and Yah is and has a Holy Spirit. Yah is One distinct Eternal, Omnipotent and Omnipresent Spiritual being. What He is Not is the creation of adulterated, fallible and deluded natural man.
Romans 1:20-23 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. And so it is written! John 1:1-5 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
Only those that are in His light and walk in the revelation of His Spirit, can truly begin to know Yah in all His Glory and presence. In His sacrifice for the redemption of man, Yahweh Possessed human flesh. By our worship, our freewill, And our yielding to His Lordship. He promises to eternally possesses us, with His Holy Spirit and Truth.
John 4:23-24 But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 14:16-17 I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you. 1 John 2:25-27 This is the promise which He Himself made to us: eternal life. These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you. As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.
Satan is the god of this current world system and has blinded the unbelieving mind, keeping them in the darkness and eternal disparity of His expiring kingdom. Yah’s true gospel has been hidden from Satan’s workers of greed and deception. This is so they can not see the true Glory of Yah, And the real revelation of His Spirit, being manifested through His Sons and Daughters in these final days.
Jude 1:17-21 But you, beloved, ought to remember the words that were spoken beforehand by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ, that they were saying to you, “In the last time there will be mockers, following after their own ungodly lusts.” These are the ones who cause divisions, worldly-minded, devoid of the Spirit. But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to eternal life.
2 Corinthians 4:1-6 Therefore, since we have this ministry, as we received mercy, we do not lose heart, but we have renounced the things hidden because of shame, not walking in craftiness or adulterating the word of God, but by the manifestation of truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For we do not preach ourselves but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your bond-servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. ” Romans 8:18-19 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us. For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God.
Yahweh “A Spiritual Being” Fulfilled His promise of redemption, by placing himself temporarily In the flesh and bones of Yahshua. He was present on the Earth as the atoning sacrifice for our sins, transferring His Saving grace to mankind.
2 Corinthians 5:18-19 Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
Genesis 1:27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Yahweh’s eternal form is Spirit and we were all created in His image. When Yahweh came to Earth living in human form of Yashua, He was at that time fully man and fully God. This Second Adam, was the Holy reparation for the original sin of the First Adam and his subsequent fall from grace.
Acts 17:24-31 The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things; and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.’ Being then the children of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and thought of man. Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent, because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him (Himself) from the dead.”

The word Attributes in describing God and or Yah (The Self-Existing One) in this post are being used as a plural noun: attributes
a quality or feature regarded as a characteristic or inherent part of someone or something.
“flexibility and mobility are the key attributes of our army”
synonyms: quality, characteristic, trait, feature, element, aspect, property, sign, hallmark, mark, distinction; informalX factor
“The Holy Spirit has all the attributes of a Yah, Yahweh and Yahshua, And they are together one Eternal being”
Galatians 1:15-16 But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, was pleased to reveal His Son in me so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with flesh and blood. 1 Peter 4:6 For the gospel has for this purpose been preached even to those who are dead, that though they are judged in the flesh as men, they may live in the spirit according to the will of God. Amen
1 Corinthians 12:27-31 Now you are Christ’s body, and individually members of it. And God has appointed in the church, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, various kinds of tongues. All are not apostles, are they? All are not prophets, are they? All are not teachers, are they? All are not workers of miracles, are they? All do not have gifts of healings, do they? All do not speak with tongues, do they? All do not interpret, do they? But earnestly desire the greater gifts. And I show you a still more excellent way.
When we receive Yahshua as Lord and Savior, All of us are given at least one or more gifts of the Spirit. However as an example; If a person has the gifts of Prophecy or Wisdom, does that make him or her a Prophet? It can but often that’s not the case.
All True followers of Christ are given the Baptism and or Anointing of “The Holy Spirit”. A select few are singled out, And Anointed to serve as leadership in the Body of Christ.
All positions of leadership in the Five Fold Ministries, Are ordained by Our Lord and God, And represent a second event.
The Five Fold Ministries
Ephesians 4:11-13 And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.
An example of this is when God called out the Prophet Ezekiel. Ezekiel 2:7 But you shall speak My words to them whether they listen or not, for they are rebellious. Or God telling Elijah the Prophet to Anoint Elisha into the office of Prophet. Elisha was already Anointed with the Holy Spirit, so this is a second event of him being Anointed as a Prophet of God. 1 Kings 19:15-16 The Lord said to him, “Go, return on your way to the wilderness of Damascus, and when you have arrived, you shall anoint Hazael king over Aram; and Jehu the son of Nimshi you shall anoint king over Israel; and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abel-meholah you shall anoint as prophet in your place.
So as you can clearly see there are two types of Anointment’s, Two distinct events provided by the Holy Spirit. One that is given in measure to everyone that receives Jesus as Lord, And one that is only given to a select few, According to the will and purpose Of The Father.
Acts 20:27-28 For I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole purpose of God. Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.
1 Corinthians 12:7-11 But to each one is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit; to another faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, and to another the effecting of miracles, and to another prophecy, and to another the distinguishing of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills. Ephesians 4:7-8 But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore it says, “When He ascended on high, He led captive a host of captives, And He gave gifts to men.” Romans 12:6-8 Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly: if prophecy, according to the proportion of his faith; if service, in his serving; or he who teaches, in his teaching; or he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
More Scripture on the Anointing
Matthew 3:16-17 After being baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove and lighting on Him, and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased.”
Luke 4:18-19 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, And recovery of sight to the blind, To set free those who are oppressed, To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.”
Looking at Elijah’s life and ministry, It provides us some idea of the level of anointing Elijah had, when he came upon the biblical stage in book of 1 Kings and it was said that “He stands before the Lord.”
1 Kings 17:1 Now Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the settlers of Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the Lord, the God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, surely there shall be neither dew nor rain these years, except by my word.”
To stand before the Lord is a quality to seek with all our Body, Spirit and Soul.
We should be able to stand before the Lord before we stand before anyone else. When we as followers of Jesus seek the same level of Anointing Elijah possessed, And receive it. You can Spiritually enter the Holy of Holies, And stand in the very presence of the Lord your God. Your cup will surly overflow.
Hebrews 10:19-25 Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.
Deuteronomy 29:10-13 “You stand today, all of you, before the Lord your God: your chiefs, your tribes, your elders and your officers, even all the men of Israel, your little ones, your wives, and the alien who is within your camps, from the one who chops your wood to the one who draws your water, that you may enter into the covenant with the Lord your God, and into His oath which the Lord your God is making with you today, in order that He may establish you today as His people and that He may be your God, just as He spoke to you and as He swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Amen
Psalm 23:5 “Yahshua” You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows.
Amen, Amen, Amen

1 John 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
Luke 3:21-22 Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.
Primary to ones walk with God is the cleansing baptism by water for the remission of our sins. John who was called by God (My Messenger), Preached of the coming Lord and the Baptism of repentance and the subsequent forgiveness of sins. John taught the people of Judea and all of the region of the Jordan the process, meaning and blessed hope of the coming Lord and Messiah Yahshua (Jesus) Christ.
Mark 1:1-5 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins. And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.
Led by the Spirit
Galatians 5:16-18 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
After our Baptism by water and receiving Yahshua (Jesus) as our Savior, we begin the long path and process of Sanctification in our search for Holiness and complete acceptance of His Lordship in our daily life. We accomplish this by His undeserved Grace as we grow in Faith in our daily walk with Our God and Father. After many trials and tribulations, we come to the point of Yahweh God’s Preeminence of every area of our lives, completely surrendering to His Lordship. During this process we grow in Knowledge, Wisdom and understanding of His Love and Mercy every step of our path.
Hebrews 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord. Colossians 1:13-20 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
God created everything and everyone for Him and His purpose, In His image and not ours. What we imagine as important and what we honor in the natural world, Is yet dross (Worthless) to our Lord and Savior.
Born of the Spirit
John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
When our Lord Yahshua (Jesus) came on the scene He taught that; not only should a man be born again by the water of repentance and forgiveness, But Through the baptism of God’s very own Holy Spirit. Jesus taught we should be born again, not by the flesh as when we first entered this world, but by His Spirit and Power. This Spiritual rebirth would allow us to enter into the kingdom of God and complete our mission and purpose in Christ.
John 3:5-8 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
1 Peter 1:15-16 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
Acts 2:1-4 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Walking in Power
Luke 24:49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. Acts 8:19 Saying, Give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.
Only in the Power of the Holy Spirit do we edify the body of Christ and are we fully prepared to be His witness, fully operational in our gifts and our assigned offices in the Army Of God. Only through this new birth manifested by His Holy Spirit, can we one day hope to inherit the kingdom of God and our Lord and Savior, Yahshua (Jesus) Christ.
Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Luke 1:17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. Luke 9:1-2 Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick. Luke 10:19-20 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
Living in the gifts
John 4:10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
Every Follower of Christ has gifts of one kind or the other. There are also many diverse ways we operate in these gifts, According to Gods Will and purpose in our lives. God created us for His purpose and use. The gifts He has given us complement us and match our personalities and the individual desires He has given us.
1 Corinthians 12:4-12 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
Yahweh God also has created administrative positions or offices, for the work of the ministry and the edification of the His body. This is a Five Fold Ministry and these offices that make up the core leadership of the Body of Christ. All of these offices are fully functioning and will continue, Until we all are unified in our faith and beliefs in the Body of Christ. Only at the return of Christ is the above statement made complete, the fullness of Christ will not happen until He returns for us, His bride. The Perfection of man to the nature, stature and fullness of CHRIST, will not happen until we are fully quickened into our Spiritual Bodies at His final return.
At the present time there are multiple denominations and Doctrines being taught throughout the world, prior to His coming our path will be made clear. The Gospel of the Spirit of God as promised will be taught throughout the entire world. It’s truth will set the captives free, Allowing all of Gods children to hear the truth and love of Yahweh God. All His children will have a chance to accept the doctrine of the Apostles and Prophets of Christ, And be released from the bondage and corruption of Satan, to the Glory and liberty of His Manifest Sons and Daughters.
Ephesians 4:10-16 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things. And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. Romans 8:18-21 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. Amen
1 Corinthians 15:45-57 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord. Amen
Ecclesiastes 8:8 There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.
Amen, Amen, Amen

Matthew 7:15-17 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
The Rise of False Prophets
Matthew 24:11-14 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
The Spirits of Pride, Lust, Greed and Control are a prerequisite to being a False Prophet. From Ahab, Azur, and Jezebel to Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin to current day manifestations of False Prophets of the likes of Benny Hinn, Joel Olsteen, T.J. Jakes and Kenneth Copeland just to name a few. They all have one thing in common either they make themselves a Demigod https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/demigod or their Doctrine teaches of another God. A good example of this would be teaching a Gospel or Doctrine of Prosperity or preaching another Jesus. https://realityofyahwehblog.wordpress.com/…/the-unfruiful-…/ Teaching another Jesus would be Preaching that Yahshua (Jesus) was not Yahweh God who came in the flesh but only His son, this Is a False Gospel. Allow me to explain: Jesus was not just a man with the Spirit of God living though and in Him, but was God Himself incarnated in human form, The Word made flesh. Jesus was not only Begotten of God but was “Emmanuel”, Literally as His Word implies “God with us”. Our Father couldn’t make it any clearer to us.
Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. Jesus/God our creator, was The expressed image of His Invisible and or Spiritual self in human form. Colossians 1:15-17 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
To summarize, God is a Spirit and God is also our Creator and Father, who also became His Word that was made flesh. God was also the man called Yahshua (Jesus), who was also God the Father in human form. Yahshua (Jesus) was Fully Human and at the same time fully God, And was indwelt by His own Holy Spirit (Ghost). All Three are One!
John 1:13-14 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only (begotten) of the Father, full of grace and truth. John 4:24: God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
1 John 5:7 : For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
The Judgement of a False Prophet
Jeremiah 23:16-24 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the Lord. They say still unto them that despise me, The Lord hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you. For who hath stood in the counsel of the Lord, and hath perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it? Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked. The anger of the Lord shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly. I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings. Am I a God at hand, saith the Lord, and not a God afar off? Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord.
The Task of the true Prophet
Hosea 8:1 Set the trumpet to thy mouth. He shall come as an eagle against the house of the Lord, because they have transgressed my covenant, and trespassed against my law.
Job 37:9-14 Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north. By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened. Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his bright cloud: And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth. He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy. Hearken unto this, O Job: stand still, and consider the wondrous works of God.
Hearken the Prophets call to Repentance
Proverbs 1:27-33 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.
We must Strive to be Holy
Hebrews 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.
Yahshua (Jesus) was and is Yahweh God the Father, He is His own son and is and has a Holy Spirit, Only He is Holy. We are not Holy but we are to seek and follow after Holiness. If it is Yahweh God’s will we will be made Holy through Yahshua (Jesus) Christ, At the day of our final judgement and the completion of our sanctification. Make your daily conversations clean and above reproach among men. At His return the Lord will bless you for you due diligence, If it is His Will and your Lot.
Revelation 15:4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest. 1 Samuel 2:2 There is none holy as the Lord: for there is none beside thee: neither is there any rock like our God. 2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 1 Peter 1:13-16 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
Matthew W Conway: Redeemed son and servant Of God
Jeremiah 22:21-22 I spake unto thee in thy prosperity; but thou saidst, I will not hear. This hath been thy manner from thy youth, that thou obeyedst not my voice. The wind shall eat up all thy pastors, and thy lovers shall go into captivity: surely then shalt thou be ashamed and confounded for all thy wickedness.
Teaching someone to follow a Doctrine of Prosperity is to set them up for certain failure, And denies us the true peace that God has promised us. When we seek to satisfy our own selfish wants and needs to overcome the trials of this world, we no longer look to God as our strength and Salvation but to other Gods.
If life was made too easy and we didn’t have to labor or toil as Christ and His followers did, how would God prove us worthy of His great and blessed promises? Money pays the the bills and puts a roof over our heads and clothes on our backs, but the Gospel of Prosperity teaches us to focus on financial abundance, thus taking our eyes off the true prize eternal life in Yahshua (Jesus) Christ.
Colossians 1:10-15 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature.
Romans 6:21-23 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
If we follow the Gospel of Prosperity we lose the great promise God has given us, One of being counted worthy of His Kingdom, Knowledge and Grace .
John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
2 Thessalonians 1:4-5 So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer.
The Hope of His Glory
Without some Trials and Tribulations we would miss out on the Glory of God, how so you may ask? Tribulation teaches you patience in turn patience creates experience and experience gives you hope. It is hope that builds our faith and the ability to rejoice in His Glory and Grace.
Romans 5:1-5 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
2 Peter 3:17-18 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
No other Gods before Me
Your God can be anything you chose it to be. Your God can be consuming to much food which is the sin of Gluttony, Or it can be a very strong sexual desire which is the sin of Lust, Or maybe overstating your position of importance which is Pride. Following the Gospel of Prosperity can lead to the sin of Greed, And can affect your Children and your Children’s Children for generations to come. This Doctrine will keep you focused on yourself and your desires and away from God and His.
Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Exodus 20:1-6 And God spake all these words, saying, I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
Amen, Amen, Amen
The 12 Tribes of Israel will represent Gods Kings, Queens and Priests that will be revealed on earth during the last days. 12,000 from each tribe will be given this honor totaling 144,000. (Revelation 5:9-10 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.) (Romans 8:16-19 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of Yahweh: And if children, then heirs; heirs of Yahweh, and joint-heirs with Yahshua/Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of Yahweh.) In Revelation 7 and 14 the 144,000 are referred to as being redeemed from among men, these are Gods Manifested Sons and Daughters the first-fruits unto Yahweh. These 144,000 are His elect and God’s immortal sonship! (Revelation 7:2-8 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nephthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.) They are with Him in Spirit and in Truth, see my post “The Immortal Sonship” for even more clarification on this subject.
The Seed Of God
The 144,000 are direct descendants of the original 12 tribes of Israel. 12,000 Kings, Queens and Priests of God from each tribe. They are to be His standing army in the last days, And are the First Fruit of the immortal Sonship of Yahweh God, Of which Yahshua (Jesus) was the first Son and the first seed. All seed bears fruit its own kind. (Genesis 1:11-12 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.) Man was formed from the dust of the earth as a type of seed brought forth through the Word and Spirit of God, As all His creation was and is. (Genesis 2:7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.) (Genesis 1:24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.) (Genesis 1:2-3 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.)
The Purpose Of the First Fruit
These First Fruits of God will help usher in His 1000 year rein after His return earth. They are also here to teach and witness to the great multitude that will come out of the great tribulation, His ways, His Truth and Light, during the final days that lead up to His return. They will be sealed with His mark on their foreheads (Minds) (Revelation 7:3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands.) (Hebrews 10:16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them.) The Redeemed sons and daughters will recognize each other as manifested sons and daughters, And as those of like and precious faith.
(1 John 2:27-29 1 John 3:1-2 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming. If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.) (2 Peter 1:1 Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ!)
His Blessings To All Twelve Tribes Of Israel
So It’s not just the tribe of Judah and or the Jewish people who will be the Lords chosen first Fruits, And receive God blessings, but a remnant of all 12 of the tribes of Israel. (Amos 9:8-9 Behold, the eyes of the Lord God are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, saith the Lord. For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.) To reiterate the main point: The original blessing was divided among all the original twelve tribes and in the last days will be shared by 12,000 from each of the descendants of the tribes of Israel. (Romans 9:24-27 Romans 10:1-13 Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them. But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? that is, to bring Christ down from above: Or, Who shall descend into the deep? that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead. But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved. And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God. Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved.)
The Levitical Priesthood
Also the original Levitical Priesthood that was the soul responsibility of one tribe of Israel, will be given to all 12 tribes equally. Under the direction of the one and only”High Priest” Yahshua (Jesus) Christ through His manifested Sons and Daughters. (Hebrews 7:11-17, 19, 21-22 If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, for under it the people received the law, what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron? For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law. For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar. For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood. And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest, Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life. For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God. For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec: By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.) (Hebrews 9:1-19 Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary. For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary. And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all; Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron’s rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant; And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly. Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God. But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people: The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing: Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience; Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation. But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth. Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood. For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people.) (Hebrews 8:7-13 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.) Amen, Amen, Amen

The Good And Bad Figs
Broad is the road that Leeds to death, And thousands walk together there; But wisdom shows a narrower path, With here and there a traveler.“Deny thyself, and take thy cross,” Is the Redeemer’s great command ! Nature must count her gold but dross, If she would gain the heav’nly land. This fearful soul that tires and faints, And walks the way of God no more, Is but esteemed almost a saint, And makes his own destruction sure. Lord, let not all my hopes be vain; Create my heart entirely new; Which hypocrites could ne’er attain; Which false apostates never knew. “Watts”
The Way Of Holiness
The way of Holiness is a very narrow path. Holiness consists of the conformity of our will and desires, to the will of God. It is produced by the Power and Glory of the Holy Spirit through the regeneration and ongoing Sanctification of the sinner. The law of God is written on his or her heart; wherein they are inclined to resist temptation, to abandon sin, and to practice complete obedience to the commands and the will of God. In following God’s Word and His will, we choose to reject our carnal desires and take up our cross and die to self daily. We find strength always in Yahshua (Jesus) Christ through His Holy Spirit, who is the author and finisher of our faith. Hebrews 10:16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them. Hebrews 12:1-2 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Yahshua (Jesus) the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Amen
Matthew W Conway a redeemed son of Yahweh my Lord and God
The House Of Jacob
Many pastors and teachers today are preaching legalism and us still being under the Old Testament Covenant, And that shouldn’t be. Here is what Our Lord God Yahshua (Jesus) Christ would say about that…….
Our New Covenant of Grace through Faith in Christ…….
Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel (The 12 Tribes and sons of Jacob/Israel), and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Yahshua (Jesus) unto good works, which Yahweh God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Yahshua (Jesus) ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto Yahweh God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Christ fulfilled those laws at Calvary and gave His Spirit to guide us and not the letter of the law as His word says. For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
God Is a Spirit! Be filled with the Spirit!
Yahweh God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth; Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Yahshua (Jesus) Christ. When 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. For 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. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity (Love). Amen, Amen , Amen

Walk In Faith
Blessed is our Lord God Yahweh and Father of our Lord Yahshua (Jesus) Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has given us a Great Hope by the resurrection of His Son from the dead. Who has also given us an inheritance that is not subject to death or decay, One that is Morally and Spirituality Pure, for our Gods Love never fails or fades away. Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Yahshua (Jesus) Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessings in the heavens and here on the earth, And has reserved a place for us in heavenly houses not built with human hands. The Lord will have you walk in faith my brothers and sisters onto the salvation of your souls through the undeserved Grace of His Son Yahshua (Jesus) Christ. As we walk in faith and grace, we are all under a heavy load with various personal temptations, Our faith will be tested and tried, A faith that is more precious than Silver or Gold, As His fire tests and purifies, with the convicting and all consuming fire of His Holy Spirit, we then maybe found worthy to escape the coming judgment of our Lord God Yahshua (Jesus) Christ.
No Greater Joy then Faith In Yahshua (Jesus) Christ
Will you have faith even onto the death of your self and live? Or will you pursue your self interests and die? Will you pursue His Holy Spirit, And subdue the desires of the flesh? Or will you pursue the desires of your flesh and suffer the ultimate condemnation of eternal punishment and despair away from the presence of the Almighty God. There is No Greater Joy and No Higher Praise to our God then our faith in Him, And no greater gift or blessing then our Lord God can give, then the free gift of His Grace to the Salvation of our Souls. This is the same Salvation the prophets of the past, had prayed and searched diligently for, And the same Grace that was prophesied that Yahweh God would provide to us in the present time. They searched for what manner and time the Spirit of Christ in them would signify His return and they testified beforehand of the pain and humiliation Christ would suffer, and the glory that would precede His return. The prophets wondered to whom it would be revealed, for it was not in their time but unto us in these last days. The prophets did minister of these things, which are now being revealed to us by His Holy Spirit, sent down from heaven to guide us into this precious faith and revelation knowledge, these are the promises the angels desire to see and watch for as they are revealed through and in us in their presence.
Prepare Your Mind For Battle
Prepare the your mind for battle by being of a sober and sound mind and expect with confidence, A clear revelation of Yahshua (Jesus) Christ in you heart and Spirit; be submissive and willing children, and do not conform to the former lusts and desires of your youth when you were fed with the milk of the Word and not meat of His Spirit. God has called you to be dedicated and determined for He is Holy, so you shall be Holy. So as you call on the Father, who has no favorites but judges according to your thoughts and actions, show care and thought to your future by passing the little time we have left in this world in fear of his final judgement. It should be clear we are not redeemed with corruptible things, such as silver or gold, or from useless conversation that has no value like the beliefs and doctrine of the many generations before you; But by following after the death and resurrection of Yahshua (Jesus) Christ, who became the sacrificial lamb for our sins and imperfections. Christ had been appointed to die before the creation of the earth, He appeared in person so that those that believe in Yahweh God, who raised His Son from the dead, would give him the glory and honor, so that your faith and hope might be in His Father God. See that you purify your soul by obeying His truth through His Spirit until you have genuine love for your brothers and sisters, and that in so doing you love each other with a pure and clean heart with passion and emotion: Being born again, not of a corruptible offspring, but of an incorruptible, by the Word of Yahweh God, that lives inside of His redeemed Sons and Daughters forever and ever. Our lives are like grass that lives for a short time and then fades away, like dust in the wind: But the Words and the ways of our Lord endure forever. And this is the words and teachings that Our Lord would have me reveal to you in the last days of this current and fallen world.
Washed In His Holy Spirit
Furthermore Brothers and Sisters: You should not be Unlearned of how some of your ancestors were under a cloud of deception, When they were Baptized by water unto a new life, but never pushed through to receive the Holy Spirit of truth that is only found through the indwelling presence of Yahweh God’s Spirit living in and through us. The Law and sacrifices in the time of Moses, were just the beginning of what was to come and was not complete in its purpose and use, As the sacrifices they offered year after year, could never hope to make them perfect. For when the sacrifice was over they continued to live in their sins, oftentimes not even remembering what their sacrifice and offering was for, and or not even caring. When after they were purged from their sins, not living in His Holy Spirit; they found it impossible to not sin anymore and returned back to their former sin. Let us draw near each other with a true heart in full assurance of our faith, with our hearts cleansed from any evil thoughts and desires, And our bodies washed with the pure water of the Holy Spirit of God. Let us hold fast our profession of faith without wavering, for God is faithful to us with His promises. Let us consider the needs of others with love and help guide them into good and honest works, not abandoning the gathering together of ourselves, with those of like and precious faith. Lift up one another as often as we can, And pray for one another as His Holy Spirit leads you, As we see the appointed time of our Lord soon approaching. Amen, Amen, Amen
By: Matthew W Conway a son of Yahweh
We have the Mind of Christ
So Saith the Lord, For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ. I thank Yahweh through Yahshua Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of Yahweh; but with the flesh the law of sin. That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify Yahweh, even the Father of our Lord Yahshua Christ. Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God. Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Yahshua Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
No Division among us!
And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith; That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Yahshua Christ for me by my coming to you again. Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel. God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Yahshua Christ our Lord. Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Yahshua Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
Light Out of Darkness
Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of Yahweh. But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of Yahweh, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Yahshua (Jesus) the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Yahshua’s sake. For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Yahshua Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
For I am Holy
Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Yahshua Christ; As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.
Born of Incorruptible seed
Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you. According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Yahshua Christ. But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Yahshua Christ. Amen, Amen, Amen

1. Doctrines of Devils…….
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God (Yah) hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the word of Jesus (Yahshua) and prayer. If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Yahshua nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained. Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honour, that the name of Yahshua and his doctrine be not blasphemed. And they that have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are brethren; but rather do them service, because they are faithful and beloved, partakers of the benefit. These things teach and exhort. If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Yahshua Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself. But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
2. Leaving the Principles of our Faith…….
Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this will we do, if God permit. For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Spirit of God, And have tasted the good word of Yahshua, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves Yahshua the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it. For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Yahshua Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God (Yah). He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father (Yahweh) and the Son (Yahshua). If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
3. The New Covenant…….
Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Yahshua unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Yahshua ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ Yahshua. For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby: And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh. For through him (Yahshua) we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father (Yahweh). Christ fulfilled those laws at Calvary and gave His Spirit to guide us and not the letter of the law as His word says: God (Yah) is a Spirit, And they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth; Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Holy Spirit of God (Yah); Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God (Yah) and the Father (Yahweh) in the name of our Lord Yahshua Christ.
4. We are a Chosen and Special people…….
For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth. The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: But because the Lord loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Know therefore that the Lord thy God (Yahshua), he is God (Yahweh), the faithful God (Yah), which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations; And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the Lord your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul, But take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law, which Moses the servant of the Lord charged you, to love the Lord your God, and to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and to cleave unto him, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.
5. Greater Works we will do…….
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father (Yahweh). And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son (Yahshua). If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
6. Brotherly Love…….
Therefore, as ye abound in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in this grace also. I speak not by commandment, but by occasion of the forwardness of others, and to prove the sincerity of your love. Let brotherly love continue. Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another.
7. The Love of God…….
For God (Yahweh) so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son (Yahshua), that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God (Yahshua). And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God (Yah). When 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. For 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. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity (Love).
Amen, Amen, Amen

1st Corinthians 16:1-3 Explained
1st Corinthians 16:1-3 Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come. And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your letters, them will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem.
Between 41-54 A.D. there was a drought, that happened that was predicted by the prophet Agabus. Acts 11:27-30 And in these days came prophets from Jerusalem unto Antioch. And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar. Then the disciples, every man according to his ability, determined to send relief unto the brethren which dwelt in Judaea: Which also they did, and sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.
The drought effected a large portion of the area in and around Jerusalem. As then so it is today there’s always a need for food during and after a drought which also can create great famine in the area. This is due to the fact that it takes the land much time to recover and become productive again. In this type of situation it would become necessary that a collection would be made by the leaders of the Church, and the community to create relief for those involved and or effected by this event.
It is believed that the apostle Paul wrote 1st Corinthians in the late spring of 55 A.D., and he and Barnabas began a collection that was meant for the drought relief. Paul mentions this collection in his letter to the congregation of God at Rome (about 58 A.D.), saying to them in Romans 15:24-28 Whensoever I take my journey into Spain, I will come to you: for I trust to see you in my journey, and to be brought on my way thitherward by you, if first I be somewhat filled with your company. But now I go unto Jerusalem to minister unto the saints. For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem. It hath pleased them verily; and their debtors they are. For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal things. When therefore I have performed this, and have sealed to them this fruit, I will come by you into Spain.
The Work Of the Kingdom…….
The Collections that are being spoken of here are not Old Testament Tithes nor are they Love offerings for the building up of the Church (Other than feeding those in need). The collections were also were not used to support Paul or the other Church Leaders in the process of doing their individual ministries. Their own individual occupations as tent makers, carpenters, fishermen and the like, provided most if not all of the funding that was needed to promote the Kingdom of God. Of course there were additional love offerings in many forms that were given to them along their path, however it was their vocation that mainly supported their ministry and service for the Kingdom of God. Acts 17 1-3, Acts 18:1-5 Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews: And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures, Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ. After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth; And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came unto them. And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers. And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks. And when Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia, Paul was pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus was Christ.
The collection of money in question was used for disaster relief for the Christians and or Saints living in that area at the time, and those that were effected by the prior years drought and famine associated with that event. This Scripture is often taking out of context to what was originally taught by the Apostles and should not be interpreted in any other way.
Any such interpretation is a Doctrine of man and as such should be repented of.
Hebrews 6:1-6 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this will we do, if God permit. For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
