Shabbat letter june 9th 2012
Now it shall be, if you diligently obey YHVH your God, being careful to do all His commandments which I command you today, YHVH your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. Deuteronomy 28:1 NASB
Shabbat shalom dearly beloved!
The above promise was given to Israel thousands of years ago and it is still as powerful today as it was then. In the Hebrew the word for OBEY is the word SHMA that means to LISTEN, TO HEAR and TO OBEY. Most of us have heard the famous Hebrew declaration from Deuteronomy 6:4:
Shma Israel Adonai Eloheinu, Adonai Echad.
Which means: Listen, hear and obey o Israel for YHVH our Elohim, YHVH is Oneness in plurality and is united within Him!
The word for listening, hearing and obeying is a Triune word just like YHVH is Triune God! You cannot separate Father, Son and Holy Spirit! They are always together everywhere all the way from Genesis, though different in function. In the same way you cannot separate Listening from Hearing from Obedience, one without the other is empty and ineffective and actually impossible! We cannot obey without hearing the Command of Yah (God) and we cannot hear if we don’t listen to His Voice. That is why the Hebrew for Deuteronomy 28:1 actually says:
Now it will be if you will listen, to really hear the voice of YHVH your Elohim, to watch and to do all the Commandments that I command you today, YHVH will position you in the highest place above all other nations.
IM SHAMOA TISHMA- if you will listen, to really hear the voice of YHVH
The reason why most people are not experiencing more breakthroughs is because most people are not doing SHAMOA TISHMA, they are not listening to the Voice of YHVH to really hear what He has to say and DO it! Most people “assume” what He is saying and/or dismiss His Voice altogether! I have no doubt that if all the Body of Yeshua would stop all plans and agendas to corporately listen to hear Yah’s Voice; we would all go into Teshuva (Repentance) and would get sanctified with the Truth at the speed of light! There would not be any divisions among us! Yeshua prayed that prayer that is yet to be answered!
Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth “I do not ask on behalf of these alone, but for those also who believe in Me through their word; that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me. John 17:17, 21
Please notice that UNITY is contingent to TRUTH, in other words we all must believe the same thing and interpret the Word the same way! Truth is not relative it is absolute. In fact Truth is a Spirit; the Spirit of Truth is the Holy Spirit!
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. John 14:17
If we would all be listening to really hear the Holy Spirit (no our doctrines, opinions, fears or experiences) we would be all hearing the same thing since Elohim is not divided within Himself! Father, Son and Ruach Hakodesh (Holy Spirit) are all saying the exact same thing; they are even thinking the same thoughts!
When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify about Me. John 15:26 NASB
The reason for so many divisions in the Body of Messiah is because different people are listening to different spirits and they think it’s God!
It really started with Emperor Constantine of Eastern Rome who said that IESUS (not Yeshua) appeared to him in a dream and promised him the crown of Eastern Rome. From then on he extended peace to the believers as long as they would obey his doctrines of demons and men starting with the decisions taken during the Council of Nicaea to divorce and separate from everything Jewish!
I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, he who does not enter by the door into the sheepfold, but climbs up some other way (elsewhere, from some other quarter) is a thief and a robber. John 10:10 AMP
Of course Constantine was listening to another spirit that is not the Spirit of Truth and a battle weary Church fell into deception with him! Ever since -different spirits have deceived the Church and the proof is that there are so many denominations and everyone thinks that they are the only true one!
Before I put my trust in Yeshua, I was working as a Tour Guide in Israel. I used to take many tourists to the Holy Sepulcher Church which is a pagan shrine built around First Century tombs believed to be by many Christians; the actual site of the crucifixion, burial and resurrection of Jesus. For about 20 years or more the different denominations that hold custody over the site, would not come into agreement as to how to finish the roof, so it was an unfinished structure! I used to laugh about those Christians that did not seem to get into one accord about something so simple!
Then I laughed but today I cry with the Almighty whose hands are tied until we come into AGREEMENT and UNITY because of the sanctification of the Spirit of Truth!
It is only when we are ALL sanctified with the Spirit of Truth that we will be one like the Father and the Son are One and then, the world will believe! This is better than any evangelistic campaign because the Presence of His Glory will flood a Bride that is sanctified with the Truth!
Until then we exhort all to lay down their lives before the Master and to circumcise our hearts and ears so we can listen to really hear and then from that place to go ahead and DO all that He tells us to do!
We cannot afford another Civil War in the Body of Yeshua like has happened throughout Church history every time that YHVH has restored a lost Truth (like baptism by full immersion or speaking in tongues, the use of musical instruments, dancing, the restoration of Shabbat and so on.)
You men who are stiff-necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears are always resisting the Holy Spirit; you are doing just as your fathers did. Acts 7:51
This time we cannot afford to be stiff necked as ancient Israel was or have uncircumcised ears and miss the time of our VISITATION! The lower we will bow before Him, the less we think we know- the better so He can speak to us all and we can hear Him and obey Him!
When he has brought his own sheep outside, he walks on before them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice. They will never [on any account] follow a stranger, but will run away from him because they do not know the voice of strangers or recognize their call. John 10:4, 5 AMP
We must die to selfish opinions, selfish ambitions, false assumptions and pride. Then and only then we will be able to listen and really hear the PURE DOCTRINE OF MESSIAH that has been hidden for 1800 years behind the spirit of deception of Replacement Theology!
This is an urgent Divine Call to the Body of Messiah worldwide to lay down all plans and unnecessary activities in order to seek Him and to listen so we can really hear what the Spirit of Truth is telling to the churches and especially to the leaders of the congregations and ministries! It is time to stop attacking each other or even be tolerant and apathetic to each other’s deceptions and really LISTEN.
What are the urgent CHANGES that He is requiring individually and corporately?
And My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14
We cannot put up with the divided condition of Yah’s House any longer as a divided house will not stand! We must take all the necessary steps to REPENT and to find out what He is saying to all of us. The outcome of SHAMOA TISHMA will be total UNITY like the Father and the Son are One, and of course an outpouring of His Glory that will help us collect the End Time Harvest at the speed of light!
When Israel sees a united Bride, full of the Glory, it will be able to see Messiah!
Have you listened to what He has to say lately?
