Is It Too Hard?

SHALOM! Today is Elul 8....the countdown to the Fall Feasts is happening right now!
I am very excited as this is a very important time.

You know even before I knew about the Way of Elohim, I would have bouts of depression in the Fall but I never knew why. I now know it was because He was seeking me into His Way. I didn't have to become depressed over all that was happening in my life and in the world but I did not understand what was happening to me. It was during some of these fall bouts that I would have dreams and visions about the end times and that was very frightening. But, Hallelu YAH! I know in Whom I believe and I know His Way and it is NOT the way of man.

All my life as I was seeking God..Elohim..He was there with me. He was showing me little pictures of His way but because I only knew the way in which I was taught, I did not understand it.

I loved Psalm 19:7-10. We would sing this...

"The Law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul.
The Testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

More to be desired than they are gold, yea, than much fine gold,
Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart.
The Commandments of the LORD are pure, enlightening the eyes.

More to be desired are they than gold, yes, than much fine gold,
Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

The fear of the LORD is pure, eduring forever,
The judgements of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.

More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold,
Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb."

I loved this yet did not understand it. I was not taught that His Law was perfect...I was taught that it had been done away with by Jesus. I was not taught about His statutes or His Judgements except that they had been done away with.

I was taught that there was no more Seventh day Sabbath because Jesus was LORD and He arose on a sunday and that's why we had new sabbath.

I was a sheep following the lies about Christmas and Easter and all the other false days...the pagan days, because that was what I was taught.

I was taught that the name of my Savior was Jesus.

But then I received Revelation and saw the LIGHT!

The 'church' will tell you that you live under grace because the Law...the Commands.... are too hard to keep....BUT they will tell you to believe and stand on the Word in Deuteronomy 28..that you will receive all the blessings and not the curses.

Let's see what the Word says you are to do to receive?

Follow His receive His blessings?

Is it too hard? Deuteronomy 30:10 says.....(talking about the blessings)....However, all this will happen ONLY if you pay attention to what ADONAI your Elohim says, so that you obey His mitzvot..commandments...and His regulations WHICH ARE WRITTEN IN THIS BOOK OF THE TORAH, if you turn to ADONAI your Elohim with all your heart and all your being.
VERSE 10....For this mitzvah I am giving you today is NOT TOO HARD FOR YOU. IT IS NOT BEYOND YOUR REACH.

Yeshua said is Matthew 11:30...(and He is speaking of Torah)..."For My yoke(Torah) is easy and My burden is light."

Look at this...Deuteronomy 30:11 amd Matthew 11:30!)

Was Yeshua serious about Torah? Read Matthew 5:18-20..."Do not think that I have come to destroy the Torah or the Prophets. I did not come but to complete. For truly, I say to you til the heavens and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall by no means pass from the Torah til all be done."

My Friends, Yeshua died for our sins...grace abounds..and ALWAYS HAS...but hearts need to be changed about YHWH's Commands. THEY ARE NOT TOO HARD FOR YOU AND IN KEEPING THEM THERE IS WISDOM AND JOY.

Yeshua is the living Torah.

To follow Him is life.

As always I want only the best for you.
With love in and through Yeshua...His servant, gloria

Forty Days of Awe? What Are You Talking About?

Elul 1, 6769 Sixth Day Yom Ha'shee shee

Hello Dear Ones. Today is a wonderful day in ADONAI! I praise His Holy Name!
Today is indeed very special. It is the begining of the Forty Days of Awe!
Why is this particular time called the Forty Days of Awe? Let's see if we can understand what happened on this day......

On the early morning of the 1st of Elul of the year 2448 from creation, Moses ascended Mount Sinai, taking with him the stone tablets he had hewn by Divine command, for G_d to re-inscribe the Ten coommandments. On the mountain, G_d allowed Moses to "see My back but not My face"--the closest any human being ever came to knowing G_d---and taught Him the secret of His "Thirteen Attributes of Mercy" (Exodus 33:18-34:8).

Moses remained on the mountain for 40 days, until the 10th of Tishrei(Yom Kippur), during which time he obtained G-d's whole-hearted forgiveness and reconciliation with the people of Isreal following their betrayal of the covenant between them with their worship the Golden Calf. This was the third of Moses' three 40-day periods on Mount Sinai in connection with the Giving of Torah. Ever since, the month of Elul serves as the "month of Divine mercy and forgiveness".(From Today in Jewish History)

My Friends, This is a time of personal change and renewal. We must seek Yah and allow Him to search our hearts. What do we need to be forgiven for? Have we done something to someone and we need to make things right? What can we do to understand His Way better? Do we need to work on our family life? It is a time of soul searching. Definately of renewal!

As I have come further into the Way of Elohim, I have continued to read and process Prophetic words from those who are not yet in His Way. They are still in the "church system" but very definately being used of YHWH. I have for quite awhile read different 'Words' being given and as I was instructed, have looked to see what 'pops' out of the pages for me. But, I have also seen how these Prophetic voices are also intune with the days and times of Yah. They do not understand it yet because they are still walking in the other place. He uses who He will and we who have 'eyes to see and ears to hear" will understand this.

What I am saying is...these Words are so many times, close to the heart of YHWH, and He will speak thru them. I have seen in the past where He is saying..."Repent. Get right with Me. Come out of the place you are in and come to Me." Most who read the Words are not understanding what He is saying except to try harder in the place that are at. They should instead be listening to Him and come out of the pagan church and into His LIGHT.

Here is a Word thru Marsha Burns....see if it does not reflect the 'days' we are in...what does it say to you? Be open with ADONAI and He will reveal to you what you need to do. He is in the field...He is accessable RIGHT NOW!

"I am opening the recesses of your heart to reveal the basis for attitudes and motivations that are detrimental to your relationship with Me and with others. As you look honestly at what I show you there is a great opportunity for healing of things that have rooted themselves deeply in your soul. Now is a time when you can gain much needed liberty of body, soul and spirit. Allow Me to do this deep work in you," says ADONAI.

Because there are those who desire to know come into the understanding of The Way of Elohim, I am going to be praying and diligently seeking Him as to what He wants me to do. He obviously instructed me to start this blog, which I have been negligent of.

I ask forgiveness RIGHT NOW. I ask that You use me in any way that You desire. I humble myself before You my King! You have taught me the Way I should go. You have instructed me and given me knowledge. So with this I will do my best to give instruction to others so they will find their way along the path of rightousness.

First, start right now to come into understanding. This is the time of reaching in and getting right with our Creator. I do want to add this, He gives us so much grace. WE, who have accepted salvation thru Yeshua know in whom we believe but with that belief comes obedience to His Way, which is keeping His commands...or instructions. This means honoring and observing Sabbath...His Sabbath...the Seventh Day Sabbath. It means keeping Torah. Yeshua is Torah...the living Word. Grace abounds, though. All during our Father's days and months are times of seeking His forgiveness and doing whatever we can to make things right.

Yes, right now we are to ask forgiveness and seek His face but before Passover, we are to sweep clean the leaven from our homes...sweep clean the sin from our lives. All during His year, we can reach out and seek Him and be confident He is always there. He is the same yesterday, today and forever.

Surrender right now! Surrender to Him all the things deep within you. If there is an issue of unforgivenesss between you and another person, pray about resolving the issue. If need be, seek forgiveness if you have wronged them and if it be that they wronged you, FORGIVE THEM. Let that burden go. Unforgiveness will root itself deep within you and it will be hard to dig out if it is allowed to grow. But if you are diligent, if you keep reafirming to yourself that you forgive...forgiveness will become a part of you.

Seek out wrongs and make them right.

As always I only want the best for you.
With love to you in and through Yeshua, our Savior and soon coming King....His servant, gloria

Av 23, 5769 Yom Khah'mee'shee Fifth Day

*From the Temple Institute.......
See, I set before you today a blessing and a curse."
(Deuteronomy 11:26)

A blessing and a curse imply both the freedom (privilege), and the responsibility of choice. It is our privilege to choose good or bad, right or wrong, blessing or curse, but it is our responsibility to choose always the former. The freedom of choice is a gift outright from G-d , who created man in His image and endowed him with the ability, (by choice), to emulate G-d by doing His will and walking in His ways.

Thus begins this week's Torah reading of Re'eh, a word which means "See! Envision! Understand!" Torah sharpens the picture for us some verses later when it states simply, "You are children of the L-rd, your G-d ." (ibid 14:1) Yes, as children of G-d we too have a share in the eternal, notwithstanding the mortal clay from which our our bodies are fashioned. But to exist beyond our own finite selves, we need to focus, to see ourselves in the context not of our own limited lifetimes, but in the context of the generational continuum of mankind. For what we choose to do, or not to do, in our lifetimes resonates and reverberates in the generations that will follow. By doing what is right in G-d's eye, by embracing the blessing and rejecting the curse, we truly become His children, transcending death and time itself......

How are we to understand this? The entire Torah is predicated on the principle of man's freedom to choose. The entire Torah is dedicated to teaching man to choose responsibly. This Torah imperative can be seen in the very creation of man himself, and in the first actions taken by Adam and Eve, right up to the final words uttered by Moses on the day of his death, at the close of the book of Deuteronomy. Man's choice, not G-d's ! G-d's will is fixed, immutable.

We are G-d's children, and our Father only wants what is best for us. Just as any father has a vision of what is best for his children and tries to imbue them with that vision, so too, G-d places before us the clear vision of what He knows is best for us.
Let's try seeing things G-d's way, making His choice our choice.*

My Dear Ones, Could it be any clearer that this is not the 'legalism' that the Christian world says it is? From the very begining our Elohim gave us freedom of choice.
And that is exactly what is on my mind today and I sit here in my 'Angel room', (my computer room)and ponder why we make the choices we make!

I have said before that it is amazing to me to see how our father works....even in Quantum Physics. In the different demensions of the universe. Right now it is believed there are ten demensions...our Elohim being at 10. The best way I have seen to explain this is ....we are at a parade...street level...we can watch the parade go up the street and down the street and our best view is right in fron of us. But think of our Elohim as being on top of a high building where he can see the whole street and therefore can see the parade from the beginiing to the end. Along the way are side streets and at any given moment the floats and bands and such can choose to take a side street. But if the want to stay in the parade...if they want to win the prize...they stay on the direct parade route.

This is how He has set it up for us. We have freedom of choice which does involve blessings and curses and He directs our paths towards righteousness but we are a stubborn people and we think we know best for us and we choose to get off of His path ...His parade route. I am a guilty as anyone...I am maybe the worst. I have heard His Voice telling me which way to go and I am still a rebellious child sometimes.

We who are parents know how this is, when our children choose to do the opposite of what we know is best for them. We see the trouble brewing in their lives and we try desperatly to steer them away from it but so often they reject our advice and go their own way. Then when things go wrong they come to us expecting us to help them get back on track. Unfortunately, that doesn't last long and they go their own way again.

Does our Father have patience or what? But, we must realize that while He does forgive we are going to have to face the consequinces of our actions in one way or another. It may not be today or tomorrow but it will come. And then we can look back and 'see' how we brought these things upon ourselves.

I can look and see exactly what I have done and when I did it as to some of the problems plaguing my life. And what can I say? That I have got to listen more closely to His Voice! I have got to follow more closly His instructions in His Word!

Her said to me..."Be as My servant, Harriet." He was speaking of Harriet Tubman. He led me to her real story and she was amazing. Yes, I know I say that about her but she truly was! She knew His Voice! She followed His instructions. Her life and the lives of so many others depended upon it. We are coming to this time in our lives where we need to KNOW HIS VOICE.


Read it again......

This is very important.....we sometimes do things because we feel it is the right thing to do. We feel we must, say, give money to this charity or that or we mybe you met someone and you feel it is the right thing to do to bring this person home and help could be a number of different things....STOP. PRAY. Do you know His Voice well enough to know what He wants you to do? We have got to get out of the mindset that we are obligated to do certain things...we are obligated to listen to Him and do as He wants us to do.

When we do what we feel is right and it is not what He wants us to do, troubles will come down the road. I know, cause I have done this and now I look back and se that I was 'doing the right thing acccording to all the ways of man and the christian(I so hate using this word but it is the only word one can use to describe the church out there.) teachings' but it was not what I should have done.

When I started this blog today I was thinking about my sons. My oldest married a woman who was not who he should have been with. Now he has moved back in with me again. His wife does not belive as he does. If he will stay this course, if he will put her behind him and get back on the path our Elohim has for him..all things will work for his good.

My younger son has an on again off again relationship with his girlfriend. They need to stay away from each other and I have counseled him about this. He says he is listening then he does the opposite. His troubles are only going to multiply because of her and hopefully he will come to his senses and listen to what I have to say and take it to heart.

So just as we have rebellious children, we are rebellious to our Father. We are living in a time when time is running out. Our Elohim has been patient with us. He has always had a people..always the Jew..the Jew FIRST..but even when Constantine took the Word of Elohim and changed it into the pagan. Our Elohim reached out with the truth and a few stayed close to Him. Even after the Reforamation and not all pagan was removed and the 'church' did not follow the true way of Elohim...He reached out and a few followed him. As the years have past by, He has stayed where He was...the same yesterday, today and has been man who has wandered from His path. and even as christians gather to praise and worship Him, they too have wandered off the path but He is calling them to come back. Come back to restoration. Restoration of His Name! Restoration of His Torah! My batttled cry iS RESTORE!

And maybe, just maybe, if we listen more intently to His Voice and heed what He is saying and follow His instuction, our children will begin to listen to us and do what is right.

I love you and only want the best for you!
With love in and through Yeshua...His servant, gloria

God, Where Are You?

Av 15,5769 Tu B'Av

"Where is God?" So many ask this. They look at the way the world is and can a loving God allow so much evil to prevail in this world? WE expect evil to be punished and good to prevail but it doesn't seem to always happen this way.

*According to the sages...."If, instead of seeking to do good and learn the lessons of God's reward and punishment, people choose to gratify themselves against God's will, and they slip into the solth of vegetation instead of striving for spiritual and moral advancement, then God withdraws, as it were, from close supervision of the world's affairs. If people are deserving of God's intimate supervision of their deeds, He no longer rewards and punishes in an obvious way. when that happens the world is clouded by the Concealment of God's Countenance. Those are the times when Jews..(and all the world)...wonder, ' Where is God?' and when there is fuel to feed the passions of those who blaspheme that there is no God.".......

Wicked, dishonest people appear to be ascendant everywhere, degrading values that we hold dear and subjugating good and sincere people. Such times can drive people to hopelessness and despair, can make them wonder whether there is any point in attempting to serve a seemingly uncaring God.*

Right now, at this very time, there are those among us who are questioning if God exists because of all that is happeneing in this world. Why is there hunger, strife, hatred, poverty, and sin? Why does it seem that God looks away from some of the horrors happening?

One might ask, why did He look away and allow someone like Barrack Obamma to become President of the United States? Yes, it seems as though He was looking the other way but He wasn't it. I have said all along, the people clammored for a King..just like the people of Israel clammored and God allowed them to have a king...KIng Saul.

And what about Hitler? Wow, another man who came to the people and promised so much and showed himself as an oracle of hope and change...hmmmm...sounds kind of familiar.
But, who finally revealed his true colors as a man not of integrity and honesty but one of evil and death.

And, we might ask...where was God when His Way was distorted by the coming of the Catholic church....the church of Constantine...the Usurper church? How could something so wonderful and full of truth and light, as the Gospel was, become so full of pagan traditions and teachings, so full of idol worship and half-truths and lies?

And, where was He when the Reformation came to be and still the lies of the Catholic church prevailed and has held captive His Body all these years?

Where is He? Where He has always been and where He will always be.

So even though there is wickedness in this world.....
*EVEN THEN, God does not cease to regulate the world and move it to His ultimate goal. The Attribute of Judgement may not be visable, but beneath the surface, the Attribute of Domination of God's Oneness is always active.*

It is said that there were three kinds of Jews in Egypt and this relates to this world we live read this....get it within your spirit.....THREE KINDS......

*there were some who perceived God in everything; they were not in exile at all in the truest sense, because nothing impaired their awareness of God in all things.

At the other extreme, there were those Jews who were equally not in exile, because they had so thoroughly assimilated into the beliefs of Egypt that they considered themselves to be Egyptians, albeit enslaved and persecuted. Their goal was not to leave Egypt, but to be accepted by their masters. For such people no redemption was possible, and they died during the plague of darkness.

Finally, there was the mass of Jews in the middle. They were in exile because they were not a part of Egypt nor did they wish to be. But they had sunk very low, almost as low as a Jew can sink without being utterly and irreparably lost. For them the hidden Hand of God was truly a healer.

In this there is a message for all of us in whatever condition we may be in, for all three catagories of people will always be present and all three aspects may be within all of us to a certain degree but there is hope. If you are unswavering in your faith and you see the hand of God in all things and you know that you know that you know He is in control then Praise the LORD. Do not give up.

But if you see that you are one who is very comfortable with this may not like what is happeneing but 'we are the world and we are one', you believe, then you should reevaluate and seek God and His Way. Death and destruction is coming and the way of the world is not going to save you.

You may be the third kind...and you may not even know it. We are told so often that we cannot straddle the fence. We either believe in Jesus or not. But what about coming to the Way of God? Renouncing the way of man and his church doctrines and traditions and pagan ways and coming over to the truth. There is only one way to salvation and that is thru Yeshua/Jesus. But what after that?

Do you stay in a church that goes by the teachings of the Catholic church that does not observe the Sabbath of God? Do you follow the traditions of man and this church that does not observe and celebrate the Holy times and days of God but instead observes and celebrates the pagan days of the Catholic church? Do you follow the church doctrines, traditions and teachings that say the Old testament is not for the Body of Messiah? That it was done away when Yeshua began his ministry? Do you straddle the fence of unsound doctrine?

The Word became flesh and that Word was Torah and that flesh was Yeshua. He did not come to do away with the Law..the Torah...but to fill us full of it.

Where is God? God where are You?

He is here...where He has always been. He never moves...but we do. My desire? To move ever closer to Him. To keep moving closer till when you see me you see Him. When you look into my eyes, you see His eyes. I want to be so close to Him that His light radiates around, thru and all over me. And that is my desire for you too.

I love you and want only the best for you.
With love to you in and through Yeshua, our Savior and soon coming King....His servant, gloria

Av 14, 5769 Third Day Yom Shlee' shee

Boker Tov! Good Morning! A wonderful morning it is! I woke up to the sound of my Severe Weather Radio going off so I have been up a litle while. We have had rain this morning in my little part of the world but it has not been threatening. Hallelu YAH!

Each day is a wonder to behold! I am amazed at the glory of Elohim..He is so good...His love and mercy endures forever! I think about how far I have! I wasn't raised a Believer and I fought hard for it. I wanted God in my life...I yearned for Him but my parents and siblings were not interested. I struck out with Him, alone. But I was never alone, He was always with me! I thank Him that He placed people in my life to fill in the gap. Like the woman who convinced my Mom to allow me to go to the altar and receve salvation. Looking back now, I already had my salvation but we were taught you must do it publically. I think about my sister in law and her former husband who led my husband and I into the Assemblies of God and into the Baptism of Holy Spirit...Ruach HaKodesh. I am thankful for all those He placed in my life down thru the years. I am not even close to any of them now. It is like the saying.."Ships passing in the night". They were there for a reason, a purpose. Each one bringing something wonderful into my life..into my walk with God.

I did not always stay close to Him...I wandered off a few times but He never moved. He stayed right there close...His angels always around me, protecting me...keeping me in my ways. He blessed me with a beautiful singing voice and I loved singing for Him. It was my desire to sing only for Him but when I became bitter over problems in my marriage and I stopped voice went away. When I had my last child, Jessica, I refused to sing while holding her..I shut myself up and then one day I went to sing and my voice was gone.

My desire for Him took many turns...always searching His Word....always seeking Him...then I realized something was happening to me....I truly needed more of Him. More than I was getting in a church...or from TV evangelists and Christian shows. I knew I was going somewhere Spiritually I had never gone before. I desired to have my hair shaved off. I had hair down to my bottom...I always became sick when it was cut but I just felt that this needed to be done. So I had my long hair shaved off. The family was furious except for Jessica, my youngest child, who would become my Sister in Elohim.

We both desired to be closer to God. It began just the two of us doing what we knew...from the Christian teachings we had. At one point we tried to get close by delving into some Catholic lent and such...OH Hallelu Yah, I am so glad He took us from the pagan and into His light. (It seems that a lot of people seeking Him are turning to these pagan ways desireing to be closer...this does not lead to him but AWAY FROM HIM. It is a false religion and although you feel religios and in a deeper is FALSE. it is a lie from Satan!)

You know a lot of people are searching for Him and they too are bringing the pagan into their lives. But the truth is, we know no better. We all, for the most part, have grown up in the pagan way. We live by its calendar of days, months and years. We are taught, even in school, to honor its days....Monday tru friday are work days, Saturday is the day to get all your running around and shopping done and Sunday is the pagan sabbath...its day of rest. We are taught about the Pagan holidays even in school....Halloween, Christmas(Christ's Mass), Valentine's Day, Easter, St Patrick's Day and any of the other myriad of days.

BUT there is a better way and it is the Way of God...of Elohim. I was seeking and He was there all the time. He led me into His days...His Holy Days...I bagan a journey in discovery. I did not know His feasts and festivals were for ME. I had been taught they were for the Jewish people..I did not go by the Old Testament, that was for the Jews too. I always knew that the Jewish people kept saturday Sabbath and a few Christians did too but I was always taught we observed our sabbath on the LORD"s Day, never knowing the truth of where it came from. Just blindly following the shepherds of the flocks. The same with the pagan holidays. We always celebrated Christmas and Easter because we were supposed to. These are Christian holy days...never knowing or being taught that they were not Biblical and were of the Catholic church and PAGAN!

But when I was seeking Him He was there and He showed me the truth. It is there for anyone to see....He desires ALL to come into His truth. I have always been taught that we Gentiles are to make the Jewish people jealous because of our faith. I never understood it. The Catholic church...the Great Pretender church and Church of Constantine...NEVER made the Jew jealous. It made him angry and hateful towards it. This church persecuted, tortured and killed the Jew...and so many others because they refused to believe in their pagan sacrements and traditions and worship of idols.

So, somehow, in the minds of the erly Catholic church they began teaching their way was the ONLY WAY. And down thru the ages, even after Protestant religion came to be, we have expected the Jew to become jealous because we follow a sunday sabbth, holidays that were NEVER instituted by God and a whole system that has been for the most part set up by man. Hmmmmmm.

So what will make the Jew jealous? By our total commitment to Elohim and following His Way. To seek His Face. The early church...before the Catholic church...was a church that followed the Tanach and Torah. All who taught were grounded in the Word...the Yeshua. They were Kadosh...holy and set apart for Him.

THIS will make them jealous..if we, as Believers in Yeshua, follow the Way of God...the Way that Yeshua taught and His followers knew as truth. Not the bunk we have been taught for about 1700 years.

What do I think about the great men and women of God who have come up thru the years who were not in His Way? Elohim is everywhere. He even infiltrated the Catholic church and was able to reach a few good men and women. And He came closer when the Reformation fell short though because so much of the pagan was retained in the Protestant churches. But He kept on touching lives and He used those willing to be used. Unfortunately, so many were so clouded in the 'new doctrines' they did not reach out to Him and receive the fullness of His Word.

BUT NOW....RIGHT NOW.... all who desire to walk closer to Him have the choice....follow His Way or the pagan way of man. Hakarat ha'emet means acknowledging the truth. Won't you? Pray and allow Him to clear your mind. Allow Holy Spirt, Ruach show you, teach you the Way of God..of Elohim. Our Father desire for you to come out of the Pagan.

Look and see what He says about worshipping the pagan way. You may be a man/woman who is being used of God. You may have a ministry that reaches out to others. God has used you but if you are in the pagan ways of man's church, how long will our Father indulge you?

Maybe you don't think it is are saved and that's all that counts...well...why not be safe than sorry?

Yeshua is coming soon. He is desiring a body of believers who know His Way. Who understand His feasts and festivals. Who understand His teachings in Torah.

Where are YOU?

I only desire what is best for you!
With love to YOU in and thru our Savior and soon coming KING, Yeshua.....His servant, gloria
