Have you ever told a lie to God?

Have you ever told a lie to G-d? Have you told Him you did something for one reason or another but really you had a different motive for doing it? Remember, G-d knows the heart. He knows your innermost thoughts. Just like a parent knows the child, G-d knows you even more. And know this, the Scriptures teach us that those who worship the L-rd must worship Him in spirit and truth. Are you being honest with G-d?

"God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." John 4:24

This is what I'm hearing:
"Whom Shall I send?" "Send your warriors L-rd."

This is what the L-rd has given me to tell to the people:

"And I will release pestilence across the land. And it will devour my people who have not heard my voice or listened to my commands. There will be a great falling away."

I waited until I got three confirmations before I posted this. I also hope for a great revival--such as one never seen before. The L-rd told me a while back that this is coming, and I'm hoping that the time for this will be soon. However, He has not spoken that to me. I have heard that He has given that to His prophets. I pray the time is near. Yeshua is coming soon.

Brittany Murphy dead at 32.

It's sad to hear of the passing of Brittany Murphy. She was so young and beautiful, and successful. People die, and we never know when it can happen. It happens to everyone.

Life is short. This is for sure. But life is also good. We can make our lives matter. And we can also have assurance and peace for the next life too. Jesus promises us that. It's true. He offers us that peace. He gives us peace here, if we allow Him to, and He offers us peace for eternity, if we accept it. How? The single most important thing you can do in your life is to establish a personal relationship with Jesus, in which He is your personal Lord and Savior. If you have not yet accepted Jesus into your life, you can do so now, by praying this prayer:
"Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus is the Messiah and He died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. Amen."

Thankful to know Him

I'm just so thankful to know Him. I'm in a fellowship of believers and I'm thankful for this. I'm not alone in my faith. There are many, many others out there just like me. We know Him. And once you know Yeshua/Jesus and His beautiful love, you are never the same. He is so kind. He really cares. I've never known so much love before. I don't come from a family of love, but in Him I find love. He loves me, and I can feel His love for me. I am filled with His joy. It's a really good feeling to know you have someone on your side--someone fighting for you. And that's what I have in Yeshua. He's on my side. He's for me. Jesus is for me. He loves me. He cares for me. I matter to Him. And that means something to me. He cares for us. He loves us.

For God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son that none should perish....that's how much the Lord cares for us all. He loves us so much He sent His only Son for us. Just for us. To save us. And I say "Yes" to that. I accept His sacrifice of salvation. I accept this gift of love.

What I'm Hearing: Two State Solution

Today was just a day of listening and being near Him. He has been calling me to get up again early. This is a good thing. I have been away from doing this for a long time now. But I haven't been getting up and doing it. I've been sleeping in. However, I do spend time with him once I'm up. I don't kick myself over this. I just spend the time. I know it's all good if I do get up like I once did at 6am. I just need to get back in the habit of doing it.

I don't hear like I did a year ago. He spoke to me almost daily, or so it seemed. But I didn't want to accept responsibility of the task He asked me to do. But He knew I wouldn't do it. I guess no one is reading this, so I'll just go ahead and be honest about it. He told me there would be a war in Israel, and I was to tell people. But I didn't want to tell. And I asked Him to remove that task from me. So He did. Then the war broke out. I don't even know who I would have told. I just know I was being selfish. I'm a believer in Messiah Yeshua and I'm of Jewish heritage. I feared the rejection from my Jewish brothers, I guess. I'm not sure. Anyone else, but I didn't want to have to tell my Jewish brothers and sisters. And, I was stupid. But that's over now.

God is good. He is good all of the time. And His mercy endures forever. I've been reading the book of Zech and I think that there is a passage in this book that predicts the dividing of Israel into a Jewish state and a Palestinian state. Look at Zechariah 13:8 "It will come about in all the land,"Declares the LORD,"That two parts in it will be cut off and perish; But the third will be left in it." I think the two parts that perish represent the Palestinians--they will cease (perish) from being part of Israel. And the "third" is the state of Israel itself. I think that this is a prophecy that will be eventually fulfilled and we will see a "two state" solution.

As a Jewish person, and a Zionist, I'm not saying I'm all for the dividing of Israel. And, I admit, I could be wrong about my interpretation of this verse. However, if this is what is written in Scripture, then we must not fight it. What will be, will be. And if you look just a bit further in Zechariah, you will see that there will be a war over the dividing of Jerusalem and then our Messiah will come. This is the return of Yeshua/Jesus! These things must happen. Jesus is coming soon.
