Is speaking in tongues truth or a deception?

Acts 2: And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested[a] on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.  What is interesting to me is how many people who believe they speak in tongues have had the above event happen to them?

It even says that the HOLY SPIRIT came down from Heaven and HE rested/settled on JESUS/YESHUA when HE was being baptized: Matthew/Mattityahu 3:16, Luke 3:22, John/Yochanan 1:32. This bears witness with these verses in Isaiah. Isaiah/Yesha’Yahu 11:1-5  Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse, And a branch from his roots will bear fruit. The Spirit of the LORD will rest on Him, The spirit of wisdom and understanding, The spirit of counsel and strength, The spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD. And He will delight in the fear of the LORD, And He will not judge by what His eyes see, Nor make a decision by what His ears hear; but with righteousness He will judge the poor, And decide with fairness for the afflicted of the earth; And He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, And with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked. Also righteousness will be the belt about His loins, And faithfulness the belt about His waist.

I met David in Ohio who told me that when he was in his 20’s a flame of fire came down from the sky and hit him in his forehead. I went to Florida 2 weeks later and met Jonathan who told me that 2 weeks prior he was in his car at night and a flame of fire in the sky was following him! Continue reading

Isaiah 42: The Lord’s Chosen Servant

1Behold my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights;
I have put my Spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the nations.
2He will not cry aloud or lift up his voice, or make it heard in the street;
3a bruised reed he will not break, and a faintly burning wick he will not quench;
he will faithfully bring forth justice. 4He will not grow faint or be discourageda
till he has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands wait for his law. 5Thus says God, the Lord, who created the heavens and stretched them out,
who spread out the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to the people on it
and spirit to those who walk in it: 6“I am the Lord; I have called youb in righteousness;
I will take you by the hand and keep you; I will give you as a covenant for the people,
a light for the nations, 7 to open the eyes that are blind,
to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness. 8 I am the Lord; that is my name; my glory I give to no other,
nor my praise to carved idols. 9Behold, the former things have come to pass,
and new things I now declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.”

Isaiah 49: The Servant of the Lord

1Listen to me, O coastlands, and give attention, you peoples from afar.
The Lord called me from the womb, from the body of my mother he named my name.
2He made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand he hid me;
he made me a polished arrow; in his quiver he hid me away.
3And he said to me, “You are my servant, Israel, in whom I will be glorified.”a
4But I said, “I have labored in vain; I have spent my strength for nothing and vanity;
yet surely my right is with the Lord, and my recompense with my God.” 5And now the Lord says, he who formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob back to him; and that Israel might be gathered to him— for I am honored in the eyes of the Lord,
and my God has become my strength— 6he says: “It is too light a thing that you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to bring back the preserved of Israel;
I will make you as a light for the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth.”

Isaiah 51:4
“Listen to me, my people; hear me, my nation: Instruction will go out from me; my justice will become a light to the nations.

Isaiah 62:11
The LORD has made proclamation to the ends of the earth: “Say to Daughter Zion, ‘See, your Savior comes! See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him.'”

John 1:4-9 In him was life; and the life was the light of men…

Luke 2:32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of your people Israel.”

Acts 13:47 For this is what the Lord has commanded us: “‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.'”

Acts 26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and …

Acts 26:23 that the Messiah would suffer and, as the first to rise from the dead, would bring the message of light to his own people and to the Gentiles.”

Isaiah 49: The Servant of the Lord, continued…

7Thus says the Lord, the Redeemer of Israel and his Holy One, to one deeply despised, abhorred by the nation, the servant of rulers: “Kings shall see and arise; princes, and they shall prostrate themselves; because of the Lord, who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen you.” 8Thus says the Lord: “In a time of favor I have answered you; in a day of salvation I have helped you; I will keep you and give you as a covenant to the people, to establish the land, to apportion the desolate heritages, 9saying to the prisoners, ‘Come out,’ to those who are in darkness, ‘Appear.’ They shall feed along the ways; on all bare heights shall be their pasture; 10they shall not hunger or thirst, neither scorching wind nor sun shall strike them, for he who has pity on them will lead them, and by springs of water will guide them.

16 Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands;

1 Peter 1:3
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

Revelation 1:5
and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood,

Colossians 1:18
And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.

The Order of Resurrection – I Corinthians 15:
20But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. 22For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. 23But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming, 24then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power.…

Paul’s Testimony to Agrippa – Acts 26:
22“So, having obtained help from God, I stand to this day testifying both to small and great, stating nothing but what the Prophets and Moses said was going to take place; 23that the Christ was to suffer, and that by reason of His resurrection from the dead He would be the first to proclaim light both to the Jewish people and to the Gentiles.”

What do the FATHER/ANCIENT OF DAYS, HIS SON/WORD/MESSIAH, and HIS SET-APART [HOLY] SPIRIT look like? – part 1

I believe there is a huge problem going on that has caused sin in peoples lives for centuries. It is because of our disobedience and wanting the wide way [which is the path of destruction] and the world [satan is now the prince of this world and he deceives the world] instead of the Narrow WAY [which is the path to life] and to obey our ELOHIM [the Hebrew word for GOD and who I believe is FATHER/SON/HOLY SPIRIT] – see Mattityahu [Matthew] 7:13-14, Luke 4:5-7, Yochanan [John] 12:31 and 14:30. You love your spouse, family, friends and you can describe, if not everything, probably many things about them because of how special they are to you. How much do you know about ELOHIM? For example, what do the FATHER, SON, and the HOLY [SET-APART/QADOSH] SPIRIT [BREATH/RUACH] look like? Continue reading

Read Acts – blood is not food!

When in Israel, ABBA [Our FATHER in Heaven] opened my eyes about another way we are not obeying HIM and instead, connecting to HIS enemy. ELOHIM is LIFE, LIGHT, TRUTH, GOOD and HIS enemy is death, darkness, lies, and evil. ELOHIM is the Hebrew word for GOD and who I believe is FATHER/SON/HOLY SPIRIT. In Scripture, blood is the life of the animal or human being and it never was to be consumed by people – it is blood not food – and it belongs to ELOHIM alone! Yechezk’el [Ezekiel] 44:7, “…My food, the fat and the blood” and verse 15, “…bring to Me the fat and the blood…”. The blood and the fat were always HIS portion! Continue reading

My story – part 2 – on my own

“Do not love the world or the things of the world. If someone loves the world, then love for the Father is not in him: because all the things of the world – the desires of the old nature, the desires of the eyes, and the pretensions of life – are not from the Father but from the world. And the world is passing away, along with its desires. But whoever does God’s will remains forever.” I Yochanan [I John] 1:15-17. I was 21 and looking to get out of the “emotional black hole” that was my parent’s house that I felt was sucking the life from me. I had just started dating and was naive and emotionally/socially immature because of lack of socialization and how my mother schooled me. My father had wanted me to join the Navy but I wanted to be on my own, away from authority that I did not agree with. Continue reading

Leket Israel – Food Bank Program [formerly called Table to Table]

This organization looks amazing. It was started by one man out of the back of his car and now serves approximately 140,000 meals weekly from food that would have been wasted! The amount of food wasted everywhere is staggering and this site is proof that it can feed the masses and proof that one person can move mountains [in this case – food]. I applaud them for what they are doing with getting fresh produce to people and healthy food to poor school children. In Jerusalem, there are many street vendors and shops that sell fresh squeezed orange, carrot, and other juices which are healthier than the soft drinks people tend to consume. I noticed when I was involved with getting food to poor people in Louisiana that it could be appalling what they were being fed by others, even through churches and the food bank. Many peoples diets today are horrible. They are killing themselves and their loved ones over not spending the time learning how to eat right, shop right, cook right. You can have a busy schedule and still make food from scratch and healthy if you plan a little and even get the whole family involved. Continue reading
