Speaking Forth God’s Word!
Prophecy is speaking forth the Word of God through the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, I will write only those Scriptures the Father has laid on my heart for “edification, exhortation, and comfort.” (1st Cor 14:3)
In the beginning was the Word. The Word was with God and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning, and all things were made through Him. Apart from Him nothing was made that was made. In Him is life. I (Yeshua) am the way, the truth, and the LIFE! No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you know Me, you know My Father!
My children, I am writing these things to you so that you will not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an Intercessor with the Father—the righteous Messiah, Yeshua. He is the atonement for our sins, and not only for our sins but also for the whole world. Now we know that we have come to know Him by this—if we keep His commandments. The one who says, “I have come to know Him,” and does not keep His commandments is a liar! The Truth is not in him! Whoever keeps MY word, in him the love of God is made perfect. Whoever claims to abide in Him must WALK just as He walked.
Formerly you Gentiles in the flesh were called “uncircumcision” by those called “circumcision…At that time, you were separate from Messiah and excluded from the Commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise. In Messiah Yeshua, you who once were far off have been brought near. You former Gentiles were cut out of what by nature is a wild olive tree, then grafted, contrary to nature, into Israel’s cultivated olive tree. I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, that a partial hardening has come upon Israel until the fullness of you Gentiles has come in. Then all of ISRAEL will be saved. For it is written, “The Deliverer will come out of Zion and turn away ungodliness from Jacob. It is written: “Return, O Israel, to Adonai your God! Take words with you and return to Adonai…I will heal your backsliding. I will love you freely. My anger will turn away from you. I will be like dew for Israel. Israel will blossom like a lily, thrust its roots out like Lebanon. Israel’s beauty will be like an Olive Tree.
I urge you therefore, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice—holy, acceptable to God. This is your spiritual service. Do not be conformed to this world! Be transformed by renewing your mind, so that you can discern what is the will of God—what is good, acceptable, and perfect. For I find this principle—that evil is present in me, the one who wants to do good.
While I delight in the Torah of God in my inner man, I see a different law in my body parts that battles against the law of my mind. It brings me into bondage under the law of sin (violation of Torah). For the flesh sets its desire against the Ruach, and the Ruach sets its desire against the flesh. For they are in opposition to one another. But when we are led by the Ruach, we are not under law of sin and death.
Now the deeds of the flesh are clear: sexual immorality, impurity, indecency, idolatry, witchcraft, hostility, strife, jealousy, rage, selfish ambition, dissension, factions, envy, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these. Those who do these things will not inherit God’s kingdom. Let the law of the Spirit of life in Messiah Yeshua set you free from the law of sin and death. What the Torah could not do, since it was weakened by the flesh, God has done. He sent His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh as a sin offering, thereby condemning sin in the flesh, SO THAT the requirements of the TORAH might be fulfilled in those of us, who DO NOT WALK according to our flesh but according to His Ruach.
Those who live according to their flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh. Those who live according to His Ruach set their minds on things of the Ruach. The mind of the flesh is death! The mind of the Ruach is life and shalom, but the mind of the flesh is hostile toward God. It DOES NOT SUBMIT ITSELF TO THE TORAH of GOD! Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the flesh, IF the Ruach Elohim indwells you.
He is righteous. Everyone who DOES what is right is born of Him. Children, let no one mislead you! The one who PRACTICES righteousness is righteous, just as Yeshua is righteous. The one who says, “I know Him,” and does NOT keep His commandments is a liar! Truth is not in him. YOUR justice is righteousness and Your Torah is TRUTH! Abide in My WORD, then you will be My disciples…you will know the TRUTH and the truth will set you free!”
May I always keep Your Torah, forever and ever, and walk about in freedom. For I have sought Your precepts. I will speak of Your testimonies before kings, and never be ashamed. I delight in Your mitzvot, which I love. Give me understanding, that I may keep Your Torah and observe it with all my heart.
I have treasured Your word in my heart, so I might not sin against You. For everyone who does evil hates the light and does not come to the light, so that their deeds will not be exposed. But whoever PRACTICES the TRUTH comes to the LIGHT, so that it may be made known that his deeds have been accomplished in God.
Thus says Adonai: “Stand in the roads and look. Ask for the ancient paths—where the good way is—and walk in it. Then you will find rest for your souls.”
“Return, O Israel, RETURN TO ME,” declares Adonai.
“If you will put your detestable things out of My sight. Then you will not waver.
Then I will give them a heart to know Me—for I am Adonai. They will be My people, and I will be their God. For they WILL RETURN TO ME with their whole heart. Then I will give them one heart. I will put a new Spirit within them. I will remove their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh, so that they will follow My TORAH, keep My ordinances and practice them. They will be My people and I will be their God.
As for those who walk after the heart of their detestable things (swine’s flesh, and the broth of detestable things) and abominations, they have chosen their own ways! Their soul delights in their abominations. I will bring their ways upon their heads.” It is a declaration of Adonai Elohim.
God is light. In Him there is no darkness! I am the light of the world. The one who follows Me will no longer walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. In Yeshua is life. His life is the light of men. His light shines in the darkness, and the darkness will never overpower it.
If we say we have fellowship with Him but keep walking in the darkness, we are lying. We do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Yeshua purifies us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we are deceived! The truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
Never think that I came to abolish the Torah or the Prophets! I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill. Amen, I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or serif shall ever pass away from the Torah until all things come to pass. Whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments (and teaches others to do the same) will be called least in the kingdom of heaven. But whoever keeps and teaches them, this one shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Enter through the narrow gate, for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many. Narrow is the gate (difficult the way) that leads to life, and those who find it are few. So, watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing. Inwardly they’re ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruit. Every good tree produces good fruit. Rotten trees produce bad fruit. Every tree that does not produce good fruit will be chopped down and thrown into the fire.
For not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord!’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who DOES the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we prophesy in Your name, and drive out demons in Your name, and perform many miracles in Your name?’ Then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you. Get away from Me, you workers of lawlessness!’”
Listen to Me, you who know justice, a people with My Torah in their heart. Do not fear the taunts of men, nor be dismayed at their insults. Let the evildoer still do evil, and the filthy still be filthy, and the righteous still do righteousness, and the holy still be holy.
A final word, when all has been heard: Fear God and keep His mitzvot! For this applies to all mankind. God will bring every deed into judgment, including everything that is hidden, whether it is good or evil. Occupy until I come! I am coming quickly. My reward is with me to give everyone according as his work. To the one who overcomes, I will grant the right to eat from the Tree of Life, which is in the Paradise of God. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Ruach is saying to Messiah’s communities. The one who overcomes shall never be harmed by the second death.
