About a year ago, when I started this blog, the goal was to bring a positive side to the chaotic situation the world finds itself in, and to remind of the need to repent. It was to be voice of support and encouragement. A voice directed toward those of us who stood on an unwavering foundation, with experience working out our salvation in fear and trembling. Not necessarily to reach to lost, that is not my ministry. But to a brother or sister who has battled against the world by guarding the Commandments of Yahweh. In the beginning there was found some success in matching the goal.
After approaching 100 posts, the focus is once more drawn to topics which hardly anyone will touch, and hardly anyone will agree with. Nevertheless, the fear of being labeled was immediately overcame. Having once lost everything important to me, as a powerful conversion experience in the early Fall of 1986, in my 29th year, took hold in me. (I have gained it all back and more.)
As my former relationships deteriorated, a hunger and thirst after righteousness, and the lonely years that followed saw much study, and an enthusiasm to share these new found truths. There are pages in my first Bible, like in Exodus 20, where the print was warn thin from continually pointing out the proof. At that time, before the internet, I knew of no one who shared these truths. My circle of contacts was small. Yet, that didn’t stop me from doing the best of my ability to publish as far as I could. Does any of this sound familiar in your life?
Where did I come from, why am I here, the age old questions became extremely important. A whole new purpose to life was unveiled. As I read the Scriptures, they played out in my mind like a video. I was there in Abraham’s caravan and in Egypt and part of the people of the Exodus. I sat with the Apostles at Yshua’s feet. My heritage is Israel. I pray for the quick reunion of Judah and Ephraim, I pray for the conversion of Ishmael.
Preaching repentance and a return to the Commandments of Yahweh, of course includes the keeping of the seventh day Sabbath. We have long understood this is a problem in mainline Christianity, have we not? They often prefer what they think Paul said over what Y’shua the Messiah taught and did.
There is good news, that after the turmoil and tribulation, and even during for that matter. Many powerful things are being done and will be done by us, in the Name and Authority of Y’shua the Messiah.
This blog is not my livelihood, it does not sustain me financially. Therefore it is not timid nor too harsh in content. No fear of losing income because someone is offended. Our mission can be difficult and thankless, yet we persevere knowing our reward is great, we have stored our treasure not in the earthy form of material and prestige. We are small and unknown, yet we are not overlooked or forgotten. When the fire of the current world is stoked hot against us we are not alone in the furnace.
The ziv life will cascade over us and we will reign with the Risen Savior, in His Kingdom here on earth for 1000 years. Then the Last Great Day.
