--Sharing our Saviour Yahushua the Messiah to the World!--

 

-Please Read this FIRST- On this site we prefer to use the actual Name of our loving Heavenly Father as it was written in the Word, and thus you will note that we will use the Four Letter “Memorial Name” of - YHVH, which is pronounced as YaHVaH or YaHWaH. In addition we will also use our Heavenly Father’s attribute/title, which is Elohim rather than “God,” which sadly is the name of a pagan god. In addition we also love to use the actual and real Name of our beloved Messiah which is - Yahushua for this is our Saviours original Hebrew Name as given to Him at birth in Lukas - Luke 1:31. This was the only Name ever used when He was on the earth by His family, disciples and His followers OVER THE centuries, even until today! However, it was changed to a foreign name by the founder of the new “pagan church of Rome.” Occasionally, we may also use other Hebrew or Greek names as well as different words in our studies for certain common words used are from pagan backgrounds and thus are not suitable. All names will be translated when they are FIRST used in a study or at various times as needed for clarity. There is a full explanation of YHVH’s blessed “Memorial Name” as well as the wonderful blessed Name of our Messiah and Saviour, thus please read … “The Memorial Name.”

The three levels of learning & understanding of the blessed Word of YaHVaH Elohim (the Lord God):

When we read and study the blessed Scriptures, the Word of YHVH Elohim as a believer in Yahushua the Messiah, we should keep the following three steps always in mind for they are a valuable guide and it will certainly provide us with guidance and illuminate the sheer beauty and the fullness of YHVH’s most blessed Word.

1. Who was YHVH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, speaking to?

2. When was it said?

3. How was His Word understood at the time it was spoken/given?

I do believe that these three points are most relevant to our understanding of 1. What the Almighty is saying at the time – 2. As well as what it means to us today - and 3. Especially to you and me right now!

 

You Are What You Eat!

“Sodom's sins were pride, laziness, and gluttony (overfeeding)

while the poor and needy suffered outside her door.”

Yechehel - Ezekiel 16:49 (NLT).

 

There are many interesting sayings about the eating habits of the average person. One such saying is that “we dig our graves with our teeth” and another is “we are what we eat.”

“… put a knife to your throat if you are given to gluttony.” Mashley Shlomo - Proverbs 23:2.

There is a great deal of truth in those sayings and it is unfortunate that in the land of plenty we eat so poorly. We may ask, do I mean we eat inexpensively? No certainly not, for everyone who buys the groceries these days knows well that food prices these days are anything but cheap. In addition it seems that food has lost a great deal of its nourishment by the time we get to eat it, as so much of it has been highly processed and even fruit and vegetables can be held in cold storage for many months and meat is frequently kept pumped up with preservatives, even though in many parts of the world this is illegal, but many butchers and supermarkets still do it and get away with it! Countless doctors and scientists have stated the following about many of those so-called healthy “heart approved” breakfast cereals, “There is as much food value in the cardboard box that those breakfast cereals come in, as in the cereal itself.” This is just another example of good money being spent for poor nutrition.

If it is true that we are what we eat, then we should be careful what we eat because it matters what we are.

“Now we are the sons of Elohim (God), and it does not yet appear what we shall be.” 1 Yochanan – 1 John 3:2.

That wonderful servant of YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, Daniel recognised his responsibility to Elohim; therefore he “Decided” in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, or the wine that he drank. It took a great deal of courage to speak up and refuse to eat the meat of the king, but Daniel found it important enough to take a stand.

Beloved, do you take a stand for what you believe? We may not be under the massive trial that Daniel found himself, but we certainly need wisdom to: “refuse the evil and choose good.”

This applies to many more things than the food we eat, but if good nutrition is necessary for good health then we should make every effort to “eat good so that we can live well.”

When we live in poor health our service to our loving Saviour is certainly impaired. Of course we can serve Him wherever we are and I know many that have been led to Yahushua by a believer in a hospital bed. If we are sick then we can serve Him as well as we can, but the point is we should do our utmost to be well in order that we can serve Him with vigour!

As important as our physical health is, our spiritual health is even more vital in the service of the Lord. Here again it is our diet that determines our health. If we are what we eat physically, we are certainly what we eat spiritually. What are we feeding the spiritual man?

Messiah said that His “Meat was to do the will of Him that sent Me to finish His work.” This must also be our meat if we are to be His followers.

This meat is there for those who are willing to partake of it, for the Word of YaHVaH Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, is there to make us wise and make us able to bring others into redemption in the wonderful Name of Yahushua, and it is available unto everyone. But sadly there are far too few who choose to digest the Word on a daily basis. Yirmyahu - Jeremiah found the Word of Elohim to be delicious and thus he said;

“Your Words … I did eat them, and Your Word was unto me a joy and the rejoicing of my heart. I am called by Your Name, O YHVH, Elohim of Hosts.” Yirmyahu - Jeremiah 15:16.

There is food all around us, but much of it is as nourishing as a cardboard box, such as the books of men. Just for interest, when I came to know Messiah Yahushua as an Orthodox Jew back in 1977, I was commanded not to read any books written by man for at least seven years and only study HIS Word, for my Heavenly Father did not wish me to be indoctrinated with false doctrines. I found this to be valuable, for looking back I can see the countless errors within Judaism and the evil rabbinic - manmade laws, which in a way have led Israel astray and we know that our Saviour as well as Shaul - Paul spoke out against THESE Laws. But, I could also see the false doctrines that are practiced in the churches that were inherited from the pagan Roman church and her many harlot daughters, which is just as bad as the evils within Judaism! We just have to face the truth and stand on the Word and on solid ground on He who is the Rock!

If we are wise we can choose foods that give us real nutrition. Indeed there are plenty of books by men around that will feed the mind garbage. If we are wise we will choose Elohim’s Word and meditate in His Word day and night. Let us be wise and follow our beloved Saviour. He knew what to eat and Yeshayahu - Isaiah speaking of Him said “Butter and honey shall He eat, that He may know to refuse the evil and choose good.”

It is time we stopped reading so many books and get back and spend more time reading the Word of Elohim and follow Him who is THE Word!

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim.” Yochanan - John 1:1.

Yahushua said; “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the Prophets: They will all be taught by Elohim. Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from Him comes to Me. No one has seen the Father except the One who is from Elohim; only He has seen the Father. I tell you the truth he who believes has everlasting life.” Yochanan (John) 6:43-48.
