The very people condemning most people for being Biblically illiterate are themselves ignoring scripture.
It is amazing to me these words that come out of their mouth and onto the pages of Facebook.
There is nothing that happens on Earth that Hashem is not in control over so why are you panicking?
Perhaps this teaching will help you get redirected.
GOOD PLEASING AND PERFECT
” DO not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of Your Mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is…. his good pleasing and perfect will.”
Romans 12; 2 NLT
Hashem’s plan for us may not always make us glad, but they are good!
They may not always seem Pleasant, but they are perfect!
When we see it to be good and we acknowledge it to be perfect, we will discover it to be pleasing.
We must realise; however, Hashem is not under any obligation to explain what He is accomplishing with our lives.
He may give us a glimpse as He often did for people in scripture, but otherwise there will be no explanations from heaven. We live by Faith and not by sight!
It is His Will and greatest desire for us to fulfill His Will, and our greatest desire to do His will, there should be no difficulty!
If there is, somewhere along the line we have created it!
And sometimes the lesson we need to learn is a hard one!
The task of Hashem is to fulfill His promises to us and our task is to fulfill the conditions that enable Him to fulfill His purpose. All of the benefits of being under the Lordship of Messiah are possible only as we come to terms with the cost and we are willing to pay it!
For this reason alone, the idea of pre-tribulation Rapture is ridiculous!
It is within this framework we discover the personal Will of Elohim YHVH, and also within this framework our responsibility for finding the personal Will of Hashem YHVH CEASES!!
Rav Saul Paul tells us, ” Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realise that Yeshua Messiah is in you, unless of course, you FAIL THE TEST?!” 2nd Corinthians 13 verse 5.
What would we be examining?
What are we looking for?
The way we live, our attitudes and behaviours will give valid evidence of the presence of Messiah in our lives.
All of these things that are happening in North America right now are a punishment for disobedience and is being poured out in order to bring those who yet don’t know our Messiah to repentance!
Perhaps instead of fighting this, we should be glorifying and magnifying the One who is bringing about trial through testing that will bring about a great revival of repentance throughout the globe.
The guidance of Hashem is never static, but a living process of the Holy Spirit / Ruach HaQuodesh at work in us.
Are we more Messiah-like now than a year ago?
Are we hungering to know more about Adonai?
Or are we more interested in pushing our agenda and our own doctrines on others looking for these specks in their eye, when we have this huge rafter in our own?
Do our lives reflect Messiah’s presence?
This is what we should be looking for, and not what is happening in the world stage today!
In Philippians 2:13, Rav Saul Paul tells, ” for it is God who works in you to Will and act in order to fulfill his good purpose.”
There is first the will and then the act…… both of which are the work of the Ruach HaQuodesh Holy Spirit in us. And the work of His Spirit in us is dependent upon the disposition of our hearts! Remember it says it is from the heart the mouth speaks!
We are not perfect and never will be, but if we are aligning ourselves with Hashem, there is nothing to fear, we are going to discover His GOOD, PLEASING AND PERFECT WILL FOR US!!!
Heavenly Father, help me to align myself with You.
So that I will discover your good, pleasing and perfect will and be part of your work in this world.
I pray against the principalities that will keep me from doing Your will, I stand on Your word and your promise!
Thank You Adonai Amein
