I am going to start talking about my story and get into more intense topics. I have told many of you that I met that I had a lot happen to me in a short period of time and that Elohim (Hebrew for God) made it really clear to me that HE and HIS word (the Bible) was the truth and that almost everything I had been believing in previously was a lie. I was convinced I knew the truth just as many people want to believe they know the truth. Considering how many beliefs there are out there including differing beliefs in Christianity, I hope that everyone can admit that there is untruth as well as truth in us all. After what happened to me, I ONLY want the truth in my life and I hope and pray for everyone to only want the truth in their lives.
Elohim knows that I only want HIM for the WHOLE TRUTH and that whatever I am still believing in that is not true I want to get rid of for HIM. However much work it takes for me to be right with HIM, I believe someday it will be worth it and I ask HIM for help, patience and time, and for whatever I need for the work to be done in me to be perfect for HIS Son – without spot or wrinkle or defect (Ephesians 5:25-27). I ask HIM not to give up on me when I fall short because some things are easier to change than others. He knows everything about us, all our spots and defects and what is untrue and how we are weak. What we have to go through when HE breaks us and remakes us can be very difficult.
Even if HE told me that I was completely wrong and had to change everything again for HIM I would want to do it because HE has shown me it is more important to be right with HIM than to believe that I am right and hold onto anything that is wrong. This is because anything untrue separates us from HIM who is the TRUTH. Usually we hold onto what is wrong because of pride, family, traditions, friends, or not wanting to change because of being lazy, or wanting things in our lives or HIM our way (the wide gate/door which is the world and leads to destruction) and not HIS way (the narrow gate/door which is difficult and few find – Mattityahu – Matthew – 7:13-14). These ways of ours are, I believe, because of what the enemy has done to us or around us that we have taken in and so have become blind and deaf (Mattityahu 13:1-23).
There are many references in the New Covenant and the Old Covenant (the Bible) about people not knowing the truth and being blind and deaf and their hearts not understanding. Read: Yesha’Yahu (Isaiah) 29 – especially verses 13/21, Yirmeyahu (Jeremiah) 5:19-31, Mattityahu 15:10-20 and 23:13-24, Mark 8:14-21, Yochanan (John) 9:39-41, Acts 28:25-27, Romans 1:18-22 and 11:7-10, II Corinthians 3:13-16 and 4:3-4, Ephesians 4:17-19, I Yochanan 1:5-10, Revelation 3:17-19. Yochanan 12:39-41 quotes the prophecy of Yesha’Yahu 6:8-10 – ‘”Then I heard the voice of Adonai (Hebrew for my Lord) saying, “Whom should I send? Who will go for us?” I (Yesha’Yahu) answered, “I’m here, send me!” He said, “Go and tell this people: ‘Yes, you hear, but you don’t understand. You certainly see, but you don’t get the point!’ “Make the heart of this people (sluggish with) fat, stop up their ears, and shut their eyes. Otherwise, seeing with their eyes, and hearing with their ears, then understanding with their hearts, they might repent and be healed!”‘ This is HUGE, this is Adonai saying HE is doing this to HIS people! Remember do unto others as you would have done unto you, they did not want to see/hear/understand the truth and they turned their hearts against the truth because they would have to change their ways (who do you know that this sounds like?). When HE has had it, HE has had it!!!
I have given my life to HIM and I pray every day for the truth, to have my eyes and ears, my heart, mind/understanding, soul, might/strength/resources, all of me opened to the truth. I pray to understand the truth of HIS word and anything hidden HE wishes to reveal to me. I have been reading HIS word intensely for the last 1 1/2 years and comparing some translations and it has been startling to me what HE has shown me. I kept being led by HIM to believe that HE could and would give me understanding of HIS word and I believe it was to give me a solid foundation in HIM first.
When you have a solid foundation in HIM you can then look at other people’s and even church’s work/beliefs and compare them to HIS word and see what is not true. If there is anything that you are not certain about pray to HIM about it. I Yochanan 2:27 – “And you also, if the anointing which you have received from HIM abides among you, need no one to teach you; that same anointing which is of God will teach you all things; it is the truth, and there is no lie in it; and even as I have taught you, abide in it.” But people rely on other men and institutions instead of on Elohim and get caught up in their untruths. I was misled by people who were convinced they knew the truth and what Elohim has shown me is to put complete trust in HIM ONLY!
