Word from God – August 12, 2022 – Keeping God’s commandments

Whilst in prayer, the Lord was leading me to read Jeremiah 18 and Ezekiel 11. And praying on this word this is what I received from God as the underlying theme regarding walking in our Creator’s ways.

When reading Jeremiah 18 it explains how God is our potter and we are the clay.

Jeremiah 18:6 - O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.

God was asking the nation of Israel to repent, to repent from doing evil in His sight , otherwise judgement was coming to Israel and more specifically Judah. And we see in the verses below that the men of Judah chose to rather walk after their own devices and in their own evil ways.

Jeremiah 18:11-12                                  11 Now therefore go to, speak to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I frame evil against you, and devise a device against you: return ye now every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good.                                                           12 And they said, There is no hope: but we will walk after our own devices, and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart. 

But what is this evil really ? We get more of the answer in verse 15.

Jeremiah 18:15 - Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths, to walk in paths, in a way not cast up;

We see the ancient way refers to days of old. Many may say this refers to God’s Torah , which is made up of His commandments, statutes and judgements. Although , this is what I have come to believe, I don’t necessarily believe it means keeping all 613 commandments of the law, but rather those that are perpetual such as the ten commandments and the biblical feast days. Some of the Torah also doesn’t apply to everyone, for example some are for women, for priests etc. And thankfully Lord Jesus Christ is our high priest and those sacrificial laws and offerings have been replaced , and as part of a new covenant Lord Jesus Christ is our High Priest who intercedes on our behalf. He himself became the ultimate sacrifice.

Also an important note is that we keep the commandments as we are saved, we are not saved by keeping them but only through grace and through faith in Lord Jesus Christ. However there are also blessings in keeping the commandments and curses for not doing so.

A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day:

Deuteronomy 11:27 KJV

Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.

Proverbs 7:2 KJV

And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

Matthew 19:17 KJV

If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.

John 15:10 KJV

Does this mean we are perfect or aim to do things on our own? Absolutely not ! We should never be doing this mechanically or just for the sake of doing it, that is religion. Also none of us are perfect, we all sin, but God provides His Mercy in that when we sin we confess that sin and according to 1 John 1:19 , if we confess our sins God is faithful and just to forgive us for our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. That is why living a repentant life is also important, including daily repentance.

If we go back to the verses above we also see what the Hebrew word for walk really means. It is the work yalak, which means to walk in counsels and statutes and in this case it is the counsels and statutes of the Living God. In Jeremiah 18:15 we see that the way the people chose to go translates to a bad sense meaning walking in evil ways… away from the commandments of God, which in essense is sin.

I was then lead to read Ezekiel 11 and this for me was another witness as these words stuck out to me. God was speaking to the rulers in Israel at that time and how He would bring judgement upon them for not walking in His ways.

Ezekiel 11:12 And ye shall know that I am the LORD: for ye have not walked in my statutes, neither executed my judgments, but have done after the manners of the heathen that are round about you.

The verses in later in the chapter express how God will restore Israel especially if they choose to walk in His ways.

Ezekiel 19-20:                                                    19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:                                                             20 That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.

I do believe this is a promise of these end days , God is indeed giving us a new heart and putting a new spirit within us, that we may walk in His ways always and forever.

I pray that this word, gives you some food for thought. Always pray and take things to God, ask Him about this word and if it is relevant for you. I pray this blesses you ! Shalom.

Being Set Apart for Lord Jesus Christ

As a born again believer , we should strive to be holy, set apart, repentant and give our all for Lord Jesus Christ.

I personally don’t believe in any denomination , I don’t follow a denomination , I follow Lord Jesus Christ/ Yeshua Hamaschiach.

The Lord has indeed helped me so much on my walk , saving me from Hinduism and new age. And during my journey He also led me to learn about the Sabbath and keeping of the biblical feast days. I do believe that these commandments are perpetual. And we don’t keep the commandments to be saved, but rather it is through Lord Jesus Christ working in us, and because we are saved. πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

Through my deliverance journey I learnt about getting rid of various cursed objects, and not participating in festivities of the world i.e. man made holidays.

I also learnt the importance of repentance , and even repenting for ancestral sins and cleansing of my bloodline. This was to ensure when interceding for others, the enemy has no legal ground.

The Lord was also calling me to a higher standard by not listening to worldly music and movies unless there was a movie or something He wanted me to watch to gain insight on the tactics of the enemy.

Recently, He also revealed through other prophets of God about the food we eat being tainted too…. I still need to make a post on that πŸ™‚πŸ™

This post is what God had placed on my heart to share recently, and I pray that it blesses and encourages you too β€πŸ™πŸ€—

If you are still unsure about God’s specific destiny for you, ask Him to reveal it to you. Walking with God is indeed a journey and a process and we are all learning πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™.

Urgent warning to the unsaved, lukewarm and OSAS believers

Hi All, just sharing an urgent message from a sister in Christ regarding those that are unsaved , lukewarm and once saved always saved believers.

We need to constantly examine ourselves and grow in Lord Jesus Christ. We are also responsible to pray for more human souls to be saved. Time is so short. Lord Jesus Christ is on His way and He us coming for His people, those without spot or wrinkle or blemish.

Below is an excerpt from my about page. We cannot afford to focus on the cares of this world and we need to be living for Christ and giving him our all.

As born-again believers, we should strive to be holy, set apart, repentant, and give our all for Lord Jesus Christ. We should come out of this world and focus on following God’s will for our lives and continue to share the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ. Walking with God is indeed a journey and process and we will always be learning. Doing the following should also help:

  • Read, implement and make the bible standard for your life.Β (Proverbs 4:20-22)
  • Love our Heavenly Father, Yahweh with all your heart mind and soul.Β (Matthew 22, 37-38)
  • Submit your own will to God’s perfect will for you.Β (Romans 12:2)
  • Be baptised and filled regularly with the Holy Spirit.Β (Ephesians 5:18)
  • Pray and spend time in God’s presence.Β (Psalm 62:8)
  • Be quick to forgive others and and yourself.Β (Ephesians 6:14-18)
  • Live a holy life, not a life according to your flesh.Β (Galatians 5:24-25)
  • Witness and speak words of life, not death.Β (Mark 16:15)
  • Use the sword of the spirit which is the word of God, and make prayer and supplication for all the saints of God. Do not be afraid to fight back and conquer the forces of evil.Β (Ephesians 6:17-18 and Isaiah 54:14-17)

Happy New Moon – Sivan

Happy Rosh Chodesh!! Happy New Moon !! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸ€—β€πŸ™

Today, at sunset marks the start of the third month in Hebrew calendar called Sivan. Depending on where you are situated the new moon may be observed from the 30th to 31st of May. β€πŸ™ 🎊

Interesting facts about the month of Sivan

  1. In the Torah , it is mentioned simply as the the third month , see Exodus 19:1
  2. The name Sivan is mentioned once in the bible in the book of Esther , see Esther 8:9
  3. On the third day of the month the LORD instructed Moses to “set a boundary”~ (hagbalah) for the people in the preparation for the coming revelation to be given 3 days later, which was the giving of the Torah. See Exodus 19: 9-15
  4. The first five days of the month of Sivan anticipate the day that the Torah was revealed to Israel at Sinai, namely on the 6th of Sivan which was at that time exactly 7 weeks after the Exodus from Egypt. I do not believe its a fixed day as some do,  but rather that we always count from the Sabbath of first fruits until the 49th day. 
  5. Most importantly this month commemorates the giving of the Holy Spirit/Ruach Ha-kodesh to the followers in Jesus/Yeshua after His ascension to Heaven πŸ˜ŠπŸŽ‰πŸ™πŸŽ‰
Numbers 10-10 : 10 "And in the days of your gladness, and in your feasts, and in your new moons, ye shall sound with the trumpets at your whole-burnt-offerings, and at the sacrifices of your peace-offerings; and there shall be a memorial for you before your God: I [am] the Lord your God.” 
Psalm 81- 3 to 4:  3Β Blow the trumpet at the new moon, in the glorious day of your feast.Β 4Β For [this] is an ordinance for Israel, and a statute of the God of Jacob.”  

The Purpose of the New Moon

  • πŸ™ Appreciate and thank God for what He is doing in your life
  • ➑️ Repentance
  • ❀ Receive a word from the Lord
  • πŸ™Œ Worship God
  • πŸŽ‰ Have a feast

The commandment to sanctify the new moon of Sivan reveals our responsibility to sanctify (i.e. observe) biblical time in general. This implies that when we observe the month that the Torah was revealed to Israel , we are infact acknowledging that time itself is rooted in the biblical calendar with its divinely inspired cycle of holy days and feasts (i.e. the moedim).

May you have a blessed new moon πŸ€—πŸ™!
