Prophet's TAble Blog
There is a scriptural reality lurking heavy over our generation that we gentiles need to come to terms with. The time of G-d's grace and favor upon the nations was given an expiration date. That expiration date has a logical connection to the nations trying to divide Jerusalem, and the very sacred ground upon which the third Temple will next be built. This ground zero area of Mt Moriah is the very place of Yeshua's zeal and is certainly the reason for this drastic spiritual shift or changing of the seasons. I've been getting this revelation for the last decade and therefore tracking this dispensation change of which officially transpired on the 120th Jubilee back in 2015-16. (Scroll down to my last two blogs in our archives for more on this truth). You may have noticed that Adonai seems to be dealing differently now with the nations, and an expected end therein has already begun. There is looming a great financial reset any day now as the U.S. currency is in a freefall collapse as a main sign of the expiration of the times of the Gentiles. There is also much saber rattling and rumor of nuclear war between the three superpowers of Russia, China and America. I have seen this war already in the Spirit with nuclear exchanges between these three. It wasn't good. But what we the gentile believers need to know is that we will not be raptured until the final quarter four (the summer season) has been completed and all of the chosen dispersed nation of Israel are all home and saved. It is becoming painfully obvious that we are officially in the decline time as an eerily similar modern-day Passover begins. However, as the time of the Gentiles expires, a whole new period of time begins where Elohim visits his own whenau (Maori word for family). In this series, I want to specifically show you the Temple and its expected rise, from the eyes of Messiah. Firstly, look at the scripture above and get familiar with a Messiah who is connected with Zion. Zion is the City of the King. Zion is the place that David captured and built his house. Zion is Jerusalem and the very core of what will be restored by our Lord to Israel. Zion is the home of the Lion. This is His lair, and any nation that dare take it in the days ahead will feel His new Zeal.
Isaiah 34:2,8 For the indignation of the LORD is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter.
For it is the day of the LORD'S vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.
Our generation is being shown so many signs. Everything from signs in the sun and moon to rumored aliens and spy balloons. Or what about Brandon? Every time I see him stumbling around as the leader of America I feel like the Spirit is saying…”there’s a big sign”. I strongly believe the Lord has been counseling me intensely for the last decades on a great unknown truth: As the Gentile's two-thousand-year dispensation now ends, a whole new era of time next begins for the nation and people of Israel. So, when you see stumbling Joe, you should know this is a sign that the time allotted the nations is done son. But perhaps the greatest sign of our time that the allotted Gentile period has officially closed will be the rise again of the third Temple in Israel. Please stick around as I start this series of blogs now to address this amazing sign about to be given our generation. I promise, you will have never seen these truths in this light, and will need to understand these things in the coming night.
John 2:18 So the Jews answered and said to Him, “What sign do You show to us, since You do these things?” Jesus answered and said to them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”
Unfortunately, the majority of Christianity has a terribly false and offensive teaching in regards to the coming third Temple. Almost no believer of Christ has seen his prophesy and responsibility of rebuilding the temple he called down. Therefore, it is likely that a large portion of Christianity will probably either miss or dismiss this great sign that is prophetically about to be to realized. Whereas most of Christianity has no clue, this future sign is on the heart and mind of every true Jew. In fact, there has been a two millennia repressed hope that the Temple in Jerusalem could once again someday rise. Yet very few Christians realize is that our Messiah was crucified as a sign of the Temples fall, but his resurrection was a sign of that the Temple would likewise rise again. Whether you are Jewish or Christian this great sign which is soon to be seen, will be the most significant event of your lifetime and your faith. So please stay tuned for this coming series.
Palestine, Ohio… I’m sure you've seen or heard about this horrific train wreck that is being labelled the mid-West's own Chernobyl. A whole train of deadly toxic chemicals derails in the center of East Palestine Ohio, a small town in perhaps one of the world’s richest farmland areas. Then, instead of the Environmental Protection Agency coming in to try to contain these cars of extremely toxic chemicals, local authorities suspiciously blow up all the cars, possibly even those not leaking. Now a dark cloud has descended over the region spewing down acid rain. Most of us think, well that’s terrible, but at least I am not affected. However, I've read that these chemicals will circle the globe in the wind currents, get into waterways, and rain acid who knows where. Then there is the farmland affected. For decades there will be deadly issues to be concerned about even in the food production of this region, and possibly beyond. I realize we all are tired of terrible news, but is all the above yet another sign from our Lord? Did you see the name of the town? Palestine
When I visited the Holy Land in 2015, I was shocked at the division I saw in the land. There is literally a hodgepodge of separated Palestinian communities and regions throughout the whole county of Israel. Since the rebirth of the nation of Israel in 1948, there has been growing diplomatic pressure calling for Israel to surrender these areas, regions and communities to become Palestine. As we toured this chosen little nation, I got more and more upset seeing all these separated areas, walled up with check points, as the result of continual Palestinian attacks against their Jewish neighbors. I came away thinking, What an absolute train wreck! It's like there is literally hundreds of separate nations within the 40 mile wide Holy Land. I went home almost depressed at what I had seen. How did this happen to this, the land of our Messiah? As I began to study, I realized that the official American diplomacy of land for peace has been used to pressure Israel’s leaders to surrender bits and pieces of the Holy Land over to full Palestinian control. There has been a 50 year long call for actual statehood of a nation of Palestine within Israel. Every American President since Jimmy Carter has adopted and participated in this anti-Christ agenda of separating the Hebrews from their scripturally mandated homeland. Bill Clinton did so much damage. He saw to the division of over 450 separate areas of Palestine within the Holy Land. Most of these are not connected. George Bush pushed and got the surrender of Gaza. Now look at that train wreck.
Lastly, President Trump came up with his version of land for peace, labeled the deal of the century. I say the steal of the century. In Trump's deal, Israel would next surrender East Jerusalem over to become the capital of a newly formed state of Palestine therein. Since there was no logical way to connect Gaza and all these other 450 segregated areas of Palestinian control, Trump offered to create and fund underground tunnels and yes, a train to connect some of these bigger bits to East Jerusalem (now to be the official Capital of Palestine). Well, that all got derailed exactly forty days after Trump and Netanyahu agreed and signed this train wreck deal as Covid was revealed. The Trump train next got derailed as divine karma for stealing the election of G-d's seat of power.
But are we the people any wiser? Have we seen the signs yet? Do we need more proof that the G-d of Israel does not approve of a State of Palestine within the scripturally detailed Holy Land. I believe East Palestine Ohio is yet another sign from the heavens that the land for peace diplomacy is a toxic train wreck. To propose the surrender of East Jerusalem (inclusive of the Temple Mount area) to become the capital of Palestine was literal madness. Take this into account before you give-it-a-go on the Trump Train 2.0.
I got this mountain moving Messianic memo months ago: Messiah said, We are Elohim! The kjv converts this name of our Creator (Elohim) into the word “gods”. Admittedly, most of the time I don't feel like I am a god. Whether it is the random aches and pains of this 55 year old body, or the every day problems and struggles I face, most days it is difficult to embrace such a drastic title. Nevertheless, Yeshua has said that I am Elohim. Therefore, I must be keen to hear and fear this truth. Remembering that it is faith alone that pleases the Lord, not false humility or religious traditions. So if for no other reason but to be pleasing, I press forward toward the high calling of His name. I recon the Lord calling me Elohim is just another one of his amazing gifts included in my salvation package. Right along with sin forgiveness, the renewal of my spirit, mind and soul, the miracle of physical healings, and the promise of life eternal. Equally as great is this extreme thing of being called by the very name of our Creator, Elohim. Understanding the greatness of this name, that all the creation is subject to it. That the sun, the moon, the earth, and every living thing on it that we see was made by this name. Therefore, the weather, the animals, the day and night, are all subject to this, our new name. Perhaps one reason we feel deficient and defeated in our life experiences is because we have not yet come into this mighty name of Elohim. When I first began to hear this from the Spirit I had my “O” moment.
EL “O” Him
O, you mean I am in Him, and El is in me? Effectively, Messiah became a man to stand as the “O” between El (G-d) and Him (the Spirit). Just my way of saying that Yeshua’s works as a man has paid for our restoration to the Father and made us eligible to receive the Holy Ghost. Now if Christ lives in you, you are now the righteousness of G-d, and can walk restored in his presence, with His Spirit. Effectively, this means your new name is El”O”Him. Messiah told the churches in Revelation that we get a new name, even the name of the Father. Furthermore, hours before Yeshua went to the cross, he revealed to his talmudim (disciples) that he had manifested the Father’s name to them. That name of plurality that also means one.
John 17:6 I have manifested your name to the men that you gave me…
John 17:21 I pray they all may be one, as you Father are in me, and I am in you, that these may be one in us: that the world may believe that you have sent me.
John 17:26 And I have declared unto them your name, and will declare it: that the love that you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.
To really get the full mountain moving memo, you must meditate in what Messiah was saying and praying in John chapter 17. This is the last revelation that Yeshua would give to his followers, and became the culmination of all his works and teachings. Therefore, it might be the most important chapter in the entire Bible. Be sure to hear Yeshua’s amazing prayer of which he prayed for you personally in verses 20-26. Messiah is therein sincerely asking the Father to allow us to enter into the Trinity and become One with them in this name Elohim. Now if this is true, then this changes everything for us. No longer are we subjected to this world, but rather, this world, and all the elements thereof and therein must be respondents to us, Elohim. Knowing that this one name (Elohim) was used in all the creation of all our world, and every living thing therein, and even the dead things thereof, leaves nothing outside our dominion when we enter in to Elohim. But not only the things visible, also those things unseen. This means every sickness, disease, fallen spirits, and principalities, are all subjected to our restored name of Elohim. So yes, this remarkable truth means you are restored and renamed in Messiah as Elohim: the mountain maker and the mountain taker.
To personally become a mountain mover, pray this way: Yeshua, you are the Messiah, the redeemer of mankind. Restore me to the Father and empower me to walk in His Spirit. I receive my new name in your prayer of One-ness in Elohim. Thank you for your works.
Continuing this blog on the revelation that Messiah said we are called Elohim in scripture. Be sure to read the previous blogs for context. Speaking of context, what was the context of Yeshua calling us “gods” as he quoted from Psalms 82? It was as he stood before the religious leaders of the Sanhedrin of his day. It is obvious that leaders take upon themselves god-like responsibilities and decisions that greatly affects their subjects. Unfortunately, some leaders get a god-complex type attitude whereby they think they need to rule over the fools, disregarding that they are civil servants. The reality is that a bad leader can quickly destroy a nation and people. Jacinda Ardern is a modern example of this statement. She was able to take a peaceful prosperous island nation consistently voted the freest place on the planet, and in 5 short years turn its people against themselves, forcefully convert it into a communist country strangled with new legislation, revocation of liberties, incitement of old race issues, and near national insolvency. On the other hand, a righteous leader can equally bring blessings to a people and nation when they are in power. One of the greatest examples of this is the kingdom of Tzarist Russia, where one family ruled in the fear of God and under submission of the church for 1000 years. However, immediately after they consulted a wicked warlock named Rasputin, their reign would end, and the 1000-year kingdom of Tzarist Russia fell into the darkness of communism. This is why Messiah referenced this great truth and warning to all generations.
Psalms 82:2 How long will you judge unjustly and accept the persons of the wicked?
So obviously, the right leader is of great concern for all our futures. As we look around the world today and see the great problems that suffocate our liberties and futures, we should realize, this is simply the result of poor leadership. This is why Psalms 82 is of such importance to us at this moment. I can literally hear in my spirit this ancient question from Elyon: “How long will you accept the persons of the wicked?” Many of us think we are powerless in regard to the obvious manipulation and wickedness that is being perpetrated upon all the world currently via these evil people in power. We are told to vote, but then elections are stolen and greater evil remains. But was Trump just another "persons of the wicked" of which this scripture tells us to not accept? Sure, he may have let some christians lay hands on him and pray, and he obviously deceived most, but not the Holy Ghost. I was personally warned thereby that he would try to steal the place of G-ds Election, Mount Moriah. Sure enough his “deal of the century” became the “steal of the century” and immediately thereafter he got his election stolen, and the world got covid. So, the hard reality is, we the people suffer when we accept wicked leaders. Trump didn't hide the fact that he was aiming to divide the chosen city of Jerusalem. Even during the debates, when asked, Trump said he was the man to make the deal (aka steal) between Israel and the Palestinians. I have written 2 books, did numerous podcasts, and written blog after blog about the dangers and judgments associated with Satan’s agenda to divide the Covenant Land and City of Yerushalayim. I believe that the Evil One knows that to bring G-d’s judgment upon America and/or any nation, the best and most effective strategy is to get a leader to break this ancient land covenant that G-d made with Abraham in Genesis 15. There is a growing list of documented proof that nothing good happens to the nation that tries to divide the Holy Land. Therefore, the land for peace agenda pushed for the last 50 years by these NWO puppets has to be seen as wicked. Therefore, any person or leader that supports this agenda must be opposed. The greatest tragedy of voting for these persons of the wicked is that the people under them are the ones who perish. Personally, I think Trump is just another puppet of the NWO getting rich destroying America by creating two opposing sides, stirring racism, and yes, trying to divide the Holy City. If Trump is not just another "person of the wicked" then let him say that Jerusalem (East and West) is the undivided capital of the nation of Israel, and the place of Yeshua's return. No, I don't support sleepy Joe either. However, I believe he was G-d’s reaction to us all being asleep concerning the Land of our Messiah and the City of His return.
But instead of us becoming more discerning concerning this wicked plot, some christians seem infatuated with these plotters. There seems to be a growing popularity of ministries that track and report all the evil plots and schemes of the NWO. I seem to be hearing christians talking more about Bill Gates and Charles Swabe than our Saviour and our G-d. The truth is, there will always be persons available to be used by Satan in every generation. Whereas I suppose it is ok to expose them, don't forget that our main objective is to oppose them. Perhaps the only reason they exist is because we the people of the Light resist our leadership roles as Elohim. Another group of believers had rather say today that all these evil leaders are just another sign of the Lord’s imminent return. But does this mean we just accept them as a sign of end times? To the contrary, in this scripture we are told to NOT accept them. Messiah repeatedly warned us to not be deceived about wolves in sheep's clothing, especially as tribulation begins. But the reality is that tribulation is the result of these persons of the wicked being in leadership.
Now hear this: the reason they are in leadership is because we (the children of the Most High) have not taken our places as Elohim. Darkness only exists in the absence of light. This is the ultimate question proposed in Psalms 82. How Long will you judge unjustly and accept the persons of the wicked?
If we are not careful, we could see Trump return and turn America into a fascist Germany as quickly as Jacinda turned NZ into a communist China. Nothing good will happen when evil sits in the high places. Psalms 82 commissions us to judge discerningly who we place over us. It also reveals to us that we don't have to accept these persons of the wicked one as our leaders. In fact, if we are really hearing what we are reading, Messiah is saying that we (Elohim) are the ones that are supposed to be leading. The ultimate truth is that darkness always exists where light is absent. But it's never too late to do the right, light thing. Put down your NWO device and vice. Stand up as the redeemed Child of G-d that you are. Messiah has said, you are Elohim. By his blood he has squared you with the Father and made you eligible to receive the Holy Ghost. You are the light and hope for our generation. Start today within your own home, your community, and your nation.
In this blog, I will continue and endeavor to confirm Messiah’s radical word in which he quoted Psalms 82:6 saying, that we are called Elohim. This name of our G-d is used over 400 times in scripture, beginning with Genesis 1:1
In the beginning G-d (Elohim) created heaven and earth.
As we proceed, I hope to clarify this revelation and bring a compilation of verses to your attention that will prove this bold idea, that we are called to be Elohim. In Genesis 1, it should be acknowledged that the name Elohim is exclusively used in the creation of everything to do with our planet Earth. Every tree, every animal, the seas, the land, the night and day, all created by the name Elohim. Why is this important to understand? Because everything on our planet is subjected to this one name, and responds to it exclusively. Therefore, it should be understood that this name (Elohim) is the key that not only made, but can also control our world, its weather, and even the sun and moon. There are examples in the Bible where men exercised this dominion or control over the elements of creation. Joshua spoke to the sun and moon and caused them to be paused. Moses held up his rod and split the sea. Peter also got out of the religious boat, and walk on top of water. So how did these mere men do such super natural things? I believe, it is because we (humans) are said to also be created by this name of Elohim.
Genesis 1:26 And Elohim said, let us make man in our image after our likeness…
Once again, all of G-d’s creation (including mankind) was made by the name Elohim. In the Hebrew, this name shows plurality. This is why the KJV uses the words us and our in its translation. Whereas the name of G-d in singular context would be EL, by adding the h (hey) and the im, it changes the name into the plural. Most Christian theologians therefore interpret Elohim as referencing the Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Ghost). It is therefore vital for us to see that mankind was not just created by the Father, or just by the Word, or even the Spirit, but rather by all three in one name called Elohim. But not only was man made by Elohim, but we were also created in the image and likeness of Elohim. If Elohim is our maker, then we at minimum should have the same dna, character, and abilities. In fact, Yeshua, who stepped out of the name of Elohim, and become a man, said we can be even called Elohim as well.
Psalms 82:6 I have said, You are Elohim, and all of you are children of the most High.
So, why are you so shocked when I say we are also Elohim? Should we (Elohim’s creation) be ashamed to be called by His name? It is a religious spirit that does not want to hear that we too are Elohim. This controlling religious spirit wants to make you sit quietly in solemn observance of your own demise. But open your eyes, you are Elohim’s creation. At very least, you should consider taking Elohim as your surname. For instance, my name is Curt ben Elohim. Or Curt, the son of Elohim. Try your name in the same way and be confident in your creation and Creator’s name. Perhaps we are not defeated human subjects of a domineering G-d, but rather named for greater things yet realized. Perhaps, like Peter, the King of the Jews is inviting you to step out of the nay-sayer canoe and walk on water too. Perhaps we are actually created by and for authority, and like Joshua, should be able to extend our days and command the sun rays. For if Moses could raise his rod and become a G-d (Elohim) shouldn't we too be keen? In fact, Moses saw miracles even in the restrictive authority of the old covenant law. How much more authority should we all now have since we are restored by the Lord, into this powerful name of Elohim?
John 10:34 “Is it not written in your law, I said you are gods (Elohim)? If he called them gods (Elohim) to whom the word of God came, and the scripture can not be broken: then why say you to him who the Father has sanctified and sent into the world, that you blaspheme because I said I am the Son of God.
Pray this prayer today: Elohim, I am keen to take my place in the Trinity of Elohim. I believe and receive the works of Yeshua have restored my rights to be called by your name, Elohim. I today receive my inheritance in your name and thereby claim full authority in my world.
I changed My Mind. How many times have you heard this statement? If only we would change our minds and exchange it for the mind of Messiah. In all reality, this is what Paul says we should let happen. But let me warn you, Messiah fully believed in his mind that he was the Father's equal. And so, as a man thinketh, so he was. I believe the power Yeshua walked in, and the miracles that surrounded his ministry were the fruit of his allowance of this thought into his mind. I also think that instead of us always crying unto the Father for deliverance from all our life issues, we should rather ask for the mind of Messiah. Sorta a WWJD mentality. That is to say, that we need to change our minds first and foremost, and host these higher thoughts. By simply receiving the mind of Messiah, our problems are immediately put on notice. How and why is this effective? Paul says it was because Messiah did not think it robbery to be G-d's equal. Yeshua, therefore, was not a lesser version of the Father held in a state of subjective inferiority as to not overreach the power or glory of the Father. Because G-d forbid that our sons should out shine us as fathers, or we be out done by a son. (Jest saying). I think it is ok with the Father if we rise up and do even greater things. In fact, correct me if I am wrong, but I think Messiah said this somewhere.
Now if Yeshua had not seen himself as equal with the Father, then he could not have said things like “If you have seen me you have seen the Father” or “the Father and I are one.” I therefore believe that Yeshua’s greatest personal conviction is herein revealed, that he was equal with G-d. But religious leaders have always cried foul on this idea, and do not want anyone to consider themselves as equal with Christ, no less the Father. Even as the priesthood of Messiah’s day called him a blasphemer for his mindful statement of equality with Elyon, and eventually saw him crucified for it. Nevertheless, Messiah tried to tell them that they too were called to have this same mindset.
John 10:34 “Is it not written in your law, I said you are gods? If he called them gods to whom the word of God came, and the scripture can not be broken: then why say you to him who the Father has sanctified and sent into the world, that you blaspheme because I said I am the Son of God.
The leaders were upset that a man (Yeshua) was claiming to be equal with G-d, as a Son. Eventually, these leaders crucified him for this radical statement. But actually, Messiah was telling them that they were called to be G-d’s equal. The proof of this is realized when seeing the actual Hebrew word Messiah used when telling this priesthood that they were called “gods”. Yeshua is quoting a verse from the Psalms.
Psalms 82:6 “I have said, Ye are gods, and all of you are children of the most High.”
The Hebrew word here for “gods” is Elohim. So the original text would read: I have said, you are Elohim. This Hebrew word “Elohim” is the name of G-d in plurality. Thus the KJV interpretation of Elohim into “gods". This scripture has long stumped theologians and they have tried to understand how we could called "gods" in these verses. I once heard a pastor say that the Father is the Big "G" and we are the little "g". This somewhat satisfies the religious spirit that is so offended by us being called equals with the Lord. Sorta keeps us from rising too high in our religious dogma. But g-wiz, there is no little "g" in the name Elohim. Make no mistake about the grandness of this name. It is none other than the name of G-d in the plural form. Most theologians believe Elohim is referring to the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. Whereas this can be correct, the actual usage here by Yeshua was in telling the priesthood of his day that they were Elohim. Now to be Elohim, they would have first had to renew their minds and allow this higher thought to be received right there between their eyes. For as a man thinketh, so is he. But instead of changing their minds and receiving this higher thought of equality with the Father, they saw to the killing of the messenger for blasphemy. And mankind today still suffers because of this same controlling religious spirit that forbids us to take our blood bought positions as Elohim. Why is it that religion is so afraid to see the manifestation of the sons of G-d (aka Elohim)? But if and when this revelation is realized by the Messiah believers, it will be world changing. But first we have to change our minds and let this mindset of Messiah (who thought it not robbery to call us Elohim) also be in us.
Psalms 82:8 Arise, O God (Elohim), judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations
I had always read this verse believing that it would be Messiah that one day will arise to judge and and inherit the nations. However, I just realized that this call is to his believers who he redeemed to be the manifestation of Elohim in the earth. The proof of this is seen in the context of this psalm, as it repeatedly beckons unto men to become gods (or Elohim) in order that we might take our blood bought role as leaders and magistrates in our nations. I can't think of a better time in the world for us to open our eyes and arise. If we simply look around today, it is obvious that evil is in the high seats of authority, and so everyone suffers. Many believers today had rather pay tribute to all the workings of our enemy and his NWO agenda and pawns. I get so frustrated when believers rehearse the present curse of men like Charles Swabe, Bill Gates, or W.H.O. ever the hell they are. There has, and always will be evil people who plot and try to blot our names from the book of life. But the reason they are in power is likely our own fault. The reality is that darkness always is here and is simply the result of the absence of light. So, when you read these scriptures that beckon the believers to “Arise” it is asking us to bring our light into leadership positions for the sake of our fellow humans. However, Adonai is not asking us to arise as mere men, but as the new and improved version of men. That is to say as redeemed and reinstated creation of the image of G-d and in the name of Elohim. But be ready for the Lord's glory to come on you as you arise into Elohim.
Isaiah 60:1 Arise and shine: for thy light has come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
This scripture is effectively the same edict for the believers to arise as Elohim in these last dark days of trouble. The stage is set, the darkness is surrounding us, and pour lights are needed.
Your Thoughts Are Spirits
Penny for my thoughts? Seems like everybody has an opinion these days. Therefore, the value of my thought may be as cheap as a penny. Nevertheless, I believe this blog will be the most valuable bit of info you will get today should you linger. The most dangerous, and/or the most beneficial thing you will do today will be what you chose to think on. The Bible is very clear on this issue, and boldly warns us that “As a person thinketh, so will they be.” Both the kingdom of Light and the kingdom of darkness are at work exclusively within the confines of trying to reach human minds. Whichever kingdom controls the narrative within your brain, will win the whole thing. So again, this is a war for your thought life, first and foremost. Through the explosion of social media platforms and our hand-held device, we are in a constant state of influence, of both bad and good. This 24/7 world within the digital universe never stops and can overwhelm anyone sucked into the black hole of it all. Ultimately, I believe our generation is in dire straits of having our lives and cultures usurped via this onslaught of online thoughts and plans. This daily deluge of ideas and thoughts coming at us is only increasing. We must understand the dangers it now represents to us and our families. This is a battle for the mind, will, and emotion of mankind. Effectively, whoever is able to get their thoughts into our heads will be the winner of this war. And today, it seems that mankind is losing because we are not choosing which thoughts we allow in.
Proverbs 23:7 “As a man thinketh, so is he.”
Such a powerful truth, that whatever we think on will almost always dictate what happens in our lives. This is why both kingdoms are so intent on getting their thoughts into us. Think about it, a thought is a spiritual entity. It has no body, no blood, no voice, yet it has the power to influence you into giving it all the above. This is why it is so critical that we don't let, but rather vet, every thought. Like a bouncer at the door of our minds, we need to learn to restrict who and what enters our head. This is actually what the word thinketh above means. This Hebrew word shar’ar is defined as a walled city with a narrow gate where thoughts are allowed or denied entrance. Another words, we are not supposed to have an open border policy where any and every thought can freely come or go. Instead, we are supposed to set a guard at this portal of our head. We need to put a big bad bouncer at the gate and turn away most thoughts these days. We also need to voluntarily limit or perhaps omit our intake of internet trash. Most of the thoughts you get there is the equivalent of letting a sadistic terrorist into your city. At some point, you will regret that you did not voluntarily vet these bad thoughts at the gate of your mind. So, how do we vet our thought life?
Jeremiah 29:11 ‘For I know the thoughts I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
Most believers will have heard this verse, but did you realize the connection to our wellness coming first as a thought from HaShem. The expected end of the peace He wants for us all begins with a simple thought. Again, thoughts are very spiritual, and although they have no evidence of material existence, they are the very seed for every need, and are therefore preincarnate spirits. This is why we so need to interrogate every thought at the gate of our mind, to discern which kingdom these spirits (or thoughts) may be coming from. However, it is also very likely you have already let some really bad spirits into your walled city via the gate of your thoughts. But Isaiah tells us about this as well.
Isaiah 55:7-11 Let the wicked forsake their way, and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them return to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
Again, the kingdom of God gains access into your life via the portal of your mind and the gate of your thoughts. These thoughts from HaShem are said here to be His own pre-incarnate Word that can cause our life to flourish and manifest His goodness. But so too does the kingdom of Satan understand this portal into our lives via thoughts, so be aware. An interesting technique used by both kingdoms is that most of these thoughts are unclaimed and even purposely camouflaged so that we do not realize who they are from. If each kingdom can simply impregnate us with their idea or thoughts, so that we begin to think it was our idea or our thought, then it becomes even more acceptable. Once we accept these thoughts, we begin to speak them and share them. Once we speak them enough, we usually start to believe them and will eventually give action or life to these thoughts. Thus both kingdoms mostly work in the invisible realm of the spirit where the impartation of thoughts are the main workings and agenda. Most people have never had an original thought in their head, but are simply being fed transplanted thoughts from one of these two kingdoms. Hashem has long since used his written word and people to spread his thoughts, but Satan today is has likewise become very wise. Using the internet so effectively, he spreads his lies like flies do larva. Meanwhile, mankind for the most part, goes about its daily routine unawares of the ongoing battle for the thoughts of our minds. Think on this today and pray this prayer for the arrest of any evil thoughts you might have let into your mind.
Father, In Yeshua’s name, I thank you for the good thoughts you think for me. Thoughts of peace and good I receive now from your kingdom and welcome into the gate of my city, my mind. Also I pray that you send your forces into my mind and arrest any thought that was not from you that I have wrongly let come into my mind or actions. I forsake these thoughts and return to you, in Yeshua’s name, amen.
Now that you have cleaned out the busy city of your mind and removed all those negative thoughts, you would do well to replace them with Hashem’s thoughts to prevent the vacuum effect. A few years ago, when i began to see this principle of renewing my mind, I was led to a scripture that I have endeavored to understand and implement. Now allow me to first warn you, this is going to challenge your thoughts.
Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Yeshua the anointed: who, being in the form of El, thought it not robbery to be equal with El: but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name.
Effectively, we are told to allow a thought into our city that most believers will see as blasphemous. This thought is that we are now equals with Hashem himself. Yes, the Almighty Deity of all creation has sent His Spirit to you this day (via a thought) saying, “It is ok to see yourself as my equal”. Even as Yeshua thought it not robbery, so too are we invited to allow this thought into our city (mind). This is quite challenging. Most people struggle with their own identity and fumble through their lives in a constant state of identity crisis. However, the Apostle Paul is telling this city of Philippi that we should not think it is robbery, and gives us a glimpse at ourselves as equals with our very own Creator. Think about that as you are sorting through the daily trash inside the devil’s web.
I think it is important for us to entertain the thought that the very reason Yeshua was so anointed was because he allowed this thought (that is is ok to be equal with the Creator) into his head as the first and foremost importance. Perhaps all the healings and unexplainable miracles that he performed were simply the result of first allowing this thought into his mind. Whereas Messiah did not have Pauls’ written letter to the Philippians proclaiming this thought, he did quote from the Psalms something on the same level.
John 10:34 “Is it not written in your law, I said you are gods? If he called them gods to whom the word of Hashem came, and the scripture can not be broken: then why say you to him who the Father has sanctified and sent into the world, that you blaspheme because I said I am the Son of God.
So again, the challenge today is to allow this really big thought into your mind, that you are not just some random being walking aimlessly through your life experience. You are all children of the Most High, who wants you to renew your mind by receiving His thoughts of empowerment and supremacy over every situation in this gift of life. Think on that today and see what comes of it.
Jeremiah 16:19 “O Lord my strength and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit. Shall a man make Gods unto himself, and they are no gods?”
Coming back to America from NZ, I get to re-see all the fallacy of Christmas. From the lights on all the houses, to the Christmas trees in every home, to the endless commercial aspect of the holiday, it has all been a familiar sound, sight and experience. However, this time I realize the big lie it all is. Firstly, Christ was not born during this season. Secondly, the Messiah’s name was not Jesus Christ. The word Christ is a greek word meaning “ the anointed”. It is not a name in itself, only an adjective describing someone who is anointed. The name Jesus is the translation from the Hebrew name Yeshua, which was translated from this Hebrew, into Greek, and then Latin, and finally to English. To call a holiday Christmas is really no honor to the Messiah. Anyone believer or person can be anointed. Most believe the name of the Messiah is Jesus Christ, similar to how we all have first and last names. However, in the Hebrew culture of Yeshua’s day, a son was given only one first name followed by the fathers first name. So Yeshua was called Yeshua, son of Yoseph. Again, Jesus Christ is not the real name of Yeshua, son of Yoseph. So there is one lie we were sold as Jeremiah above foretold. Sorta messes up the Christmas season, doesn't it? However, the real lie is the timing of Yeshua, son of Yoseph’s birth.
Jewish law from Torah commanded all Hebrews to make pilgrimages to Jerusalem twice a year. The first was the first Jewish festival of Passover. Every year each family went up to the City of God for the festival of Pesach. There are actually seven festivals yearly commanded to observe, but only two required families to go up to the capital city. The other is the festival of Sukkot and coincides with the season of fall, usually around october in the Gregorian calendar. This is the last yearly festival and also requires each family to live outside in a booth or sukka for seven days. December would not be so user friendly for Sukka living. The timing for Joseph and Mary couldn't have been worse as she was obviously very heavy pregnant with baby Yeshua. Yet they were commanded by God to observe Sukkot in Jerusalem. Now the rich folk all got rooms inside Jerusalem, but the common folk usually chose the cheaper option of Bethlehem, a poor town just south of Jerusalem. However, even the rooms there were all taken, so they set up their sukka (booth) in the barnyard. But again, Yeshua was not born under a Christmas tree in a house decorated with lights with Santa the main character. These are all lies and vanity we inherited. Nevertheless, I want to agree with the angels at Yeshua's birth on Sukkot and proclaim joy to the world via the birth of Yeshua, the anointed son of Yoseph.
I dreamed then I awoke, then I spoke: I have a heart for the double part. There on a distant shore I heard the word Restore. The Spirit said, raise their head, for I will give double for all their trouble. Then I realized the portion of grace and saw the Savior’s face. It had blood and thorns which had become horns. Then one of the seven sounded from heaven against Earth’s leaven on Jubilee. This same Son of man began to descend to the land at the end. I watched him go, I watched him overthrow tyrants. They ran and hid in the caves to save their soul. But they too know: It is the day of the Lamb’s wrath and they are his path. Then he raised his hand and claimed the same in the land. Double I heard, the islands undeterred. The foundations then shook, and again I took a look. It was a whole new land, and a whole new covenant plan.
