Recently some thoughts came to my mind and they repeated several times, so erev shabbat I found time to search for words which could descibe what I received.
Are we, mispacha, still on tracks?
We, who received revelation about who we really are in Yeshua, embraced our identity…
Some of us attended the Congress of Bney Yosef National on the mountains of Efrayim. Some of us attended all three. We became family like Yeshua says in Mattheus 12:47-50. We had plans and shared our idea’s to eachother….
Today I thought about all these ideas and plans. I also thought about the parable which tells us about the seeds, the circumstances and the result in Mattheus 13.
Let us read:
Mat 13:1 The same day went Yeshua out of the house, and sat by the sea side.
Mat 13:2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.
Mat 13:3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
Mat 13:4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
Mat 13:5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:
Mat 13:6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
Mat 13:7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:
Mat 13:8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
Mat 13:9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Mat 13:18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
Mat 13:19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
Mat 13:20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
Mat 13:21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
Mat 13:22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
Mat 13:23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
Verse 5, 20 and 21 tells us about them who received the Word of revelation, becomes full of joy , but has no root and when tribulation, persecution or other heavy things arise, this person is offended.
In difficult times we will see which person has a root or hasn’t. Because difficult times ask our responsebility. Difficult circumstances ask us to stay on tracks with all what we have. And when we haven’t practice what we received, when we haven’t protected that precious truth about our calling by the help of the Father…then we loose vision.
Then we loose vision
Nowadays we in the four winds of the earth are put in our chamber, some can’t go out their village. Some can’t meet their fellowship, relatives. Has this cicumstances such an influence on us, that we loose vision? That we slowly step back, letting go what we were planning to do?
This is the ultimate time to focus that the kingdom of heaven is at hand:
Mat 10: “But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
Mat 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
The kingdom of heaven…
Galatians 4 tells us something more about that kingdom. When we read between the lines we will begin to understand that everything here on earth is here for a certain period. When we go deeper we will see and begin to understand that all what we see with our eyes and understand with our minds is not the same what we see with our hearts.
Many doctrines have influenced our thoughts, but doctrines find their place straight in our mind, not our heart and spirit.
This time helps us a lot to see the difference between Abba’s Ruach and people’s mind.
Eze 20:35 And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there will I plead with you face to face.
Eze 20:36 Like as I pleaded with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you, saith Elohim YHVH.
Eze 20:37 And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant:
When we have loose vision, we can repent. We need to repent. Return to Abba YHVH and ask Him for forgiveness that we by circumstances that took our security in the social life, we allowed our purposes to evaporate.
This time is testing us, what we mean with Shema…
And when we are willing with a soft heart, we will see that we had looked through a veil and with the help of Abba YHVH (Psalm 121) Ruach haKodesh will make us mindful about everything Yeshua has spoken – John 14:26
Heb 12:1 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,
Heb 12:2 Looking unto Yeshua 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.
Heb 12:3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
Heb 12:4 Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.
Heb 12:5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: …
Are we still on tracks?
Heb 12:10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.
Heb 12:11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.
Heb 12:12 Wherefore lift up the hands which hang down, and the feeble knees;
Heb 12:13 And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed.
Heb 12:14 Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
Heb 12:15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;
Spr 30:4 Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son’s name, if thou canst tell?
Jes. 40:12 -17 Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?
Test my words and thoughts,
blessings, shalom, Hadassah
