Deuteronomy chapter 6 was read. This is our righteousness, EVERYDAY, v. 25 ‘then it will be righteous for us…
Today I want to talk about spiritual warfare. Because in order to deal with these battles on the physical, we have to first have an understanding of the spiritual realm. Because this is where everything takes place first. So, when you have an understanding of spiritual matters your able to see beyond the flesh and understand exactly what you are dealing with. Through the guidance of Yah, I have been working on a lesson called the Set Apart Assembly of Yah for a later day (I did not see this lesson). As Yah began to deal with me, I saw the two go hand in hand. Because spiritual warfare does effect the assembly and each one of our walks. Especially because we have been dealing with that spirit of division. So in this lesson we will talk about spiritual warfare and how it affects Yah’s assembly.
Once our eyes’ have been opened by Yah, we have choices to make. If we choose to serve Yah, we have a duty of delivering this truth to the world. So it’s up to each one of us to truly seek Yah’s Spirit in our walk. Yah is our business when it comes to the spiritual war. He does not want anyone in the assembly that harbors these wicked spirits because once a spirit is in the midst of an assembly, it begins to pass and work through people. We will focus on how to recognize these spirits that are in our midst, these familiar spirits.
These familiar spirits lead to breaking peace, separation and no order. An assembly with no peace or order cannot focus on doing their jobs. For example, those employed there may be times when you are going through something at home or your life and you have to try to go and work, while your being spiritually attacked. You become preoccupied all day long. It makes it difficult to focus on your work and difficult to be motivated to perform your job. The same applies spiritually. A congregation of Yah must deliver the word of Yah and be examples rather than the flesh. This is why the brothers as leaders, we have to guard the assembly. We must have an understanding of spiritual matters.
Yah was not playing around when He set up the nation of Israel to perform that duty here on earth. Israel was playing around which is why we are where we are today. Yah was all business and still is. We have to observe and watch. We have to be able to understand what spirit people are entering the assemble with. We brothers are watching but ultimately it’s up to us all to guard the assembly, the brothers, sisters, each one of us. We have to be focused on our walks. So we may better serve our purpose in Yah’s plan. These verses we go over will be to prove how serious Yah is about these spiritual matters, how they affect our walk and the assembly.
2 Kings 23:23-25 But in the eighteenth year of King YoshiYah this passover was held before Yah in Yahrusalem. Moreover YosiYah put away those who consulted mediums and spiritualists, the household gods and idols all the abominations that were seen in the land of Yahudah and in Yahrusalem that he might perform the words of the law which were written in the book that HilkiYah the priest found in The House of Yah. Now before him there was no king like him who turned to Yah with all his heart, with all his soul and with all his might according to all the law of Moshe nor after him did any arise like him.
We see here that YosiYah turned to Yah with all his heart according to the law of Moshe. Notice he put away those who deal with familiar spirits so that he may perform the laws of Yah. We have to remember some things about familiar spirits. There are many different doorways that they will use to try to get to a person. They have many different ways they use to get to a host. If you saw the move ‘Fallen’ with Denzel Washington, go back and watch it again and listen to the part where the angel explains to him how he’s going to keep coming all these different ways until he gets inside of him, until he tears him down. My point is we just don’t come into contact with spirits just with black magic, wizards, astrology and stuff like that. Those are just certain doorways they use. There are all types of ways they will use to come at you.
There are all types of spirits lurking out here because there is a spiritual war going on. A familiar spirit is a familiar spirit no matter what doorway we give it to enter. So YosiYah, this brother understood that in order to complete and remain focused on Yah, familiar spirits could not be in the midst of the flock. Look at it this way, Scripture tells us a spiritual war is going on between Yah and the adversary. Just imagine two people at war. If one of those people had a gathering of His people and say the enemy entered that gathering. Do you think He would sit there and do or say nothing? Don’t you think He would alert the people? Why? Because they are at war, the enemy is seeking to destroy them. What do you think if the enemy dared go into that assembly? It’s the same on the spiritual level, so when people come in and they are being used as instruments of the adversary, we have to alert the congregation. That spirit must be dealt with and rebuked.
When I first got into this walk, I didn’t fully understand about rebuking. I thought I did but I’ve learned spirits literally do pass through person to person, if you allow it. I know ou can only battle that wicked familiar spirit if Yah’s Spirit is with you. You can’t go it without Yah. Anyone harboring that spirit and if they wish to continue to allow themselves to used by the adversary, then they must go. It’s as simple as that. That goes for all of us in the assembly. Not because I say so but Yah says so. A true assembly of Yah has to be focused on Yah not harboring spirits. Understand, I’m not talking about those battling spirits, we all have to battle spirits at times. Or else how can there be spiritual warfare? I’m speaking of those who refuse to humble themselves to the ways of Yah. People who have no intentions of growing as a family and an assembly. Let’s face it, we know there are people like that in this world. There’s a difference between falling short and spiteful behavior, wicked behavior. That’s different. We all fall short or have fallen short, we cry, we get upset, we are humans. I’m speaking of premeditated, well thought out wickedness This is why spiritual understanding is so crucial. How can you be effective in a spiritual war with no spiritual understanding?
You ever seen on t.v. when little kids try to get in cars and drive it? And what happens if they are not stopped? They crash and many times they hurt others in the process. It’s the same thing, you can’t go into a spiritual war with no spiritual understanding. The other night we were discussing this spirit of division. I noticed something very interesting about what brother ‘O’ said. He asked the family to think back on certain things people have done. You know like that old saying hind sight is 20/20. Well the reason you have to think about it most times is because you didn’t notice something the first time around. So we have to spiritually on guard at all time. Then we can see beyond the flesh because if not you will not even notice the little signs and red flags that go off when the adversary is working through a person. See we have to understand this, Scripture says sin is transgressing Yah’s laws. Yah finds us guilty of breaking laws when we willingly do that or we know before that and do it anyway. So this means that we make the choice to go against Yah’s ways and we know better at that moment we have given ourselves over to the spirit of the adversary, willingly. Because it’s the spirit of the adversary that leads you to that sin in the flesh. If you allow that spirit to turn you away from the ways of Yah, as you deal with whatever situation your going through, then you are giving yourself over to that.
Understand what I am saying. I don’t mean if we become upset at something that happened suddenly you know if you make a mistake, I’m talking premeditated. When Yah has already shown you what route to take and you know in your heart that you are still going to sin. We battle things at times and it can get real hard for many of us because we are human and this walk can be tough for some of us. But I’m saying whose route will we choose to take. It’s all about the way you handle it. Yah does want us to deal with these things so we must do everything in the order Yah deems. We must be in the image of Yah’s righteousness, in ALL that we do. That is what set apart means. If you have an issue with your brothers or sisters, if you are going to speak out against something or accuse then have witnesses, not hearsay. Establish trust among each other. We can’t do that if we are caught up in things like division and gossip or reckless talk. This is what Proverbs 16 talks about.
Proverbs 16:27 An unrighteous man digs up evil and it is on his lips like a burning fire (his words). A perverse man sows strife and a whisperer (gossip) separates the best of friends. A violent man entices his neighbor and leads him in a way that is not good.
Notice it says ‘his words’. Why is it their words? Because they are planting seeds with those words. In vers 28 it says that they are seeds of strife. Notice that it says that gossip causes separation between brothers. There is a war going on and there are two sides, those that have the Spirit of Yah and those that have the spirit of the adversary. We all fall short, we must forgive one another, if we have these spirits. If someone makes a conscientious decision to choose the adversary over Yah they must be cut off. But if we are all on one accord with Yah, we should not have to handle things that way.
It’s all about the manner and order in which we handle spiritual matters. For example, if my Isha were to upset me, not on purpose. But if I became upset at my wife and this spirit came over me. The moment that spirit came over me, I have a choice to make. Do I become angry, hatful, spiteful and mean over something that could be a small misunderstanding? Or do I ask Yah to remove this spirit from me and allow Yah’s set apart spirit to lead me as I walk and work this issue out with my Isha. So that we can continue to love one another and be on one accord to do our jobs for Yah. It’s all about Yah, understand the flesh is the small picture. We have to remain intoned with the Set Apart Spirit because sometimes we think about ourselves and become totally blind to the big picture. Remain focused on the work and our walk.
When the adversary can find a host to work through and get to an assembly of Yah, if that spirit is not stopped, that assembly will fall. In fact, some of us have witnessed that in the past We have to have spiritual understanding and only Yah’s Spirit can give you that understanding. This is proven in Job 32.
Job 32:7-9 I said days should speak and multitude of years should teach wisdom. But there is a Spirit (Set Apart) in man and the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding. Great men are not always wise nor do the aged always understand justice
We gain wisdom over time from experience, it says the Set Apart Spirit gives wisdom to man. Some great men or elderly are not wise in verse 9. This is telling us that Yah’s Spirit gives a man wisdom and understanding. But you have to allow the S.A. Spirit to lead you. Verse 9 many people have gone through their whole lives making mistake after mistake before they finally start getting a clue about a little bit of what is going on. Those that are of Yah and open themselves to Yah receive spiritual understanding. You may have a young man 20 years old that has far more understanding about what’s really going on than a man who is 50 and their still lost. The proof is Yahoshua, how do you think He was able to bust people’s head wide open with the word at the age of 12!!
Our children now are the same in this aspect . They are receiving this truth a lot earlier than we did. They don’t have to have their minds corrected, like us. All they know is Yah. Imagine what understanding they will have! We must understand this spiritual warfare because the adversary only needs one host to break though. The adversary only needs one chink in your armor to get inside that host. That is why we are told to put on the whole armor of Yah. The adversary is the father of deception and lies, he does not need much (room to operate).
1 Corinthians 1:9-10 Yah is faithful by whom you were called into the fellowship of His son Yahoshua Messiah. Now I plead with you brothers by the name of our Master Messiah Yahoshua that you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
Yah called us into this fellowship with Yahoshua. Shaul is begging the brothers in the name of Yahoshua for us not to have divisions among us. Why did Shaul beg this of the brothers? Why was this so important? Because this brother understood the importance of the flock being on one accord spiritually. He said be perfectly joined together in the same mind and judgment. What Yah is showing us through Shaul here is that the attributes of the true assembly of Yah should be on one accord. We talk a lot about the flock coming together for fellowship and forming the body of Messiah. And those who come together to form that body must be on one accord when we encounter attacks from the adversary. So, I will give you an example.
I know some brothers are familiar with the old cartoon Vultron. On this show Vultron is called the defender of the universe. There is a wicked king that conjures up these huge beasts to do battle with Vultron. The wicked king needs Vultron out of the way in order to do what he wants in the universe. Vultron’s body consists of 5 mechanical lions. One lion forms the leg, one forms the other leg and so on. Each of these lions are controlled by 5 different soldiers. So when they have to form Vultron to go out and do battle with one of these wicked beasts they have to be perfectly joined together with the same mind and judgment. Just imagine if they are engaged in a battle and the spirit of division were to come over them. It starts with one solider and causes strife between he and the others and continues to work through each one of them until there is utter chaos. Remember there supposed to be focused on this beast who is running at them with intentions of chopping their heads off. How can they deal with their adversary’s attack if they’re attacking one another. It only takes one host to cause utter madness and confusion. Look at how many so called black organizations over the years have been destroyed. It was always the same method…familiar spirits y’all.
So if a spirit other than Yah is allowed to continue to dwell among the assembly, that assembly will fall. Divide and conquer has plagued many congregations over time. These spirits must be dealt with. Anyone choosing, key word choosing to allow these spirits to use them must be cut off. There has been many times when certain brothers have noticed these spirits, they entered before the congregation was aware. There have been people who make a few comments and you feel their spirit. I will send PMs and the brother feels that exact same way at the exact same time (about the person or persons) without any prior talks about it. And sure enough, it ends up being someone in the room causing a lot of trouble. This is how Yah warns you of these spirits when their lurking.
But we have two be on one accord. A lot of times the assembly will not notice certain things right away, it may seem small in the beginning but remember this is the father of lies we are talking about. Adam and Eve thought, it would not hurt, it’s not a big deal, we surely won’t die. Look how far everything has spiraled out of control from that one event. I always try to remind people how deep that moment was. When we see what this world was in the beginning and the cesspool of sin it has become. This is the result of satan getting inside of us just one time. It doesn’t take much just one chink in your spiritual armor…he’s the master of deception.
We have to view things on a spiritual level and we have to allow Yah to take spirits from us when they come upon us and attempt to use us to break down the assembly. How do we do that? By denying self and following the ways of Yah. Leading your life by the order of Yah because there will be times when you know for sure that a spirit is after you or us in some way. We have to rebuke that spirit. You can’t willingly give yourself over to the ways of the adversary. There should be no back stabbing, hatred or bearing false witness against your neighbor in the assembly of Yah. Of course there will be misunderstandings and disagreements but the key is to strive for perfection, strive for spiritual perfection. And it will manifest in the flesh. Who is truly striving for perfection in their walk with Yah? And who ‘s not?
Shaul begged for us to be on one accord. Let’s see what Yah told Shaul about people who created divisions.
Romans 16:16-18 Greet each other with the set apart kiss. The congregations of Messiah salute you. Now I urge you, brothers, note those who cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which you learned and avoid them for those who are such do not serve our Master Yahoshua Messiah but their own belly and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple.
Once again Shaul is talking about the congregation in division. He’s begging the brothers to be on one accord. That same spirit of division lurks today. Shaul was trying to warn us about this spirit. Shaul said mark those who cause division. We know the spirit of division is a familiar spirit. There is nothing new under the sun, like Yah says nothing new.
Leviticus 20:6-7 And the person who turns to mediums and familiar spirits to prostitute himself with them, I will set My face against that person and cut him off from his people. Consecrate yourselves therefore be set apart for I am Yah your Mighty One. And you shall keep My statues and perform them. I am Yah who sanctifies you.
When a person turns to wizards or witches to go whoring, they are giving themselves over to the wizard physically and spiritually, to the familiar spirit. They are spiritually whoring after that spirit. Remember a familiar spirit is a familiar spirit. It does not matter what doorway we give them. What matters is that we knowingly and willingly do it. Why does Yah say He will cut those off with familiar spirits from the people? And then say you shall keep His laws and perform them? He didn’t want familiar spirits in the midst because they make it difficult for people to focus on Yah. He didn’t want people practicing that and bringing it to the midst of the flock. Remember this is spiritual warfare, if the enemy enters he must be dealt with. We must look at it in this manner. With more spiritual understanding comes more responsibilities, spiritually. For example, the older my son gets, he’s 6 years old, the mor I will expect of his decisions as he gets older. There are certain things now I now hed does not understand. Therefore I don’t hold mistakes against him. But, if he knowingly steps out of that, then I expect him to take responsibility for his actions.
So as we gain more spiritual understanding we gain awareness of these spirits. The reason Yah expects us to be set apart in the flesh is because Yah has given us the truth! He has opened our eyes, we don’t even deserve it. But he has given it to us (opened our eyes) to things we were not aware of before. He expects us to be set apart in the flesh because we know better, understand spiritual matters. So now when the adversary tries to persuade us to step outside the law of Yah, we know a spirit is attempting to use our bodies. If the S.A.Spirit is not of this world, then our walks should show that. If your walk isn’t showing that then Yah’s Spirit isn’t upon you.
This is why 1 John 2:15 says do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. vs. 16 The Father is not of the world (Yah is Spiritual) Look at holidays, there will be family you will have to cut yourself off from. That is why Yah says in Matthew, don’t choose mom and dad over me. He is concerned about your heart. Where is your heart at? You can say Yah, Yahoshua all day but what are you doing? Who are you giving yourself over to? Again, what we think is small, is the adversary using you to attack Yah’s assembly? Our walk shows what spirit is occupying our temple.
Now Scripture talks about spiritual whoring. Praising these different gods, wizards are ways some of these doorways these spirits use to get to a person. They have many different ways they will use to try to get to you. What do whores do, male or female? They give up their body for payment and they let others have their way with their body. When satan throws a spirit of division, lust, hate or whatever it is, you allow it and you know in your heart what you are about to do and you still take that action…you’re allowing that spirit to have its way with your body. That spirit may be using you as a doorway to get to the assembly to create strife with the congregation seeking Yah. After he’s done with your body he will find someone else.
Unless that spirit is exposed and rebuked, it all falls (the assembly). We can’t have those types of spirits in our midst. Yah will not allow it. So, why should we? How could we, if we want to on one accord with Yah? Servants of Yah and servants of satan don’t mix company. This is why these brothers like YoshiYah and Shaul tried to stress to the people who, hey we can’t have those with familiar spirits among us. That S.A. Spirit of Yah can conquer sinful desires. This is why when the S.A. Spirit is truly in a person, it shows in their walk. But the spirit of the adversary can’t conquer those desires. Do you know why? That same spirit is the source of those desires. Remember satan is about chaos and confusion this is why when we are lost in sin many of us are out-of-control!!
This is what it talks about in Proverbs 25:28 Whoever has no rule over his own spirit. Is like a city broken down without walls. *spirit=do you have the Spirit of Yah or spirit of the adversary
Imagine a city that is broken down physically and spiritually . There is no order only chaos. People are free to enter and exit as they wish. The city is just there and this is what happens when we are out of control and we have given up our bodies to these spirits. They use you as instruments to attack anything or anyone that is of Yah until they are done with you. Then they move on to the next person. The whole time you don’t even realize this spirit is breaking you down also, until it’s too late. Because it doesn’t care about you. There is no type of reward after you have allowed this spirit to use your body. Even if it feels ok temporarily, just like giving up your body for money, like we were talking about earlier, in the end it profits nothing. This is why when we have done things against Yah and behaved in ways we know are not of Yah, you feel guilty afterward. Spiritual whoring, just like if you have ever seen documentaries of women who have had a previous life of prostitution, they say all the money they have made was for nothing. They ended up broke and on drugs and everything just gone. Or some are not broke but can’t get over the emotional scars of what they did.
It’s the same spiritually, it’s a no win situation. That spirit is coming in opposition to Yah because Yah and the adversary are at war. So we can’t allow that spirit to spread throughout the assembly. This is why Shaul told the brothers to mark those who create division. We must rebuke that spirit and be willing to cut certain people and things out of our lives, if we have to. If we can’t do that then we are not worthy of doing the work of Yah. That is not my words that is Yah’s word. This is why we must pray and ask for Yah’s protection daily. So that Yah’s Set Apart Spirit will give us the strength we need to endure to the end. Only Yah’s Spirit can do that. In fact, Let’s look at what happens when we try to go to battle without Yah.
Deuteronomy 1:41-42 Then you answered and said to me, we have sinned against Yah. We will go up and fight just as Yah our Mighty One commanded us. And when every one of you had girded on his weapons of war you were ready to go up into the mountain and Yah said to me tell them, ‘Do not go up nor fight for I am not among you, lest you be defeated before your enemies’.
They were ready to battle but Yah said He was not with them. We can’t go to battle without Yah. Spiritual warfare doesn’t begin when you encounter the spirit, you must be prepared for spiritual warfare at all times! Not when things go bad, ‘Uh-oh, I better pray’. You better wake up praying!! HalleluYah! The spiritual war goes on whether you want it to or not. This is what praying 3 times daily is all about, not just to tell people we do that or that it’s cool to do it. We have to be focused, open all our hearts to Yah in our prayers. That is what the fasting is all about. Like we say when your fasting you don’t go around telling people because that is when you are to focus on what you need to be doing. It is all apart of spiritual warfare. Being focused on Yah is so that His Spirit can remain with you! That is important because a spiritual war is going on. David understood the importance of spiritual matters. David had perfect understanding of this. He knew He wasn’t doing a thing without Yah. He knew it was all spiritual. Psalm 51:5-11 read.
This is deep. Just look at the words these brothers were saying at this time. This verse proves that it is all spiritual, verse 11. It’s up to us to make the choice if the S.A. Spirit is going to dwell within us. v. 5 David knew he was nothing, sinful. We can’t do it in the flesh. v. 6 You must desire the truth, wisdom, you must truly want it. v. 7 David wants to be spiritually clean and wants Yah’s Spirit to dwell within him. v. 10 He knew he could not go to spiritual war without Yah. This is what it’s all about, the daily mediation, prayer and fasting, that is what it is about. We have to come correct when we go to the Father. David is asking Yah to do all these things in him because David understood without the power and love of Yah’s Spirit he was nothing. v. 10 Yah has to give you the comfort of His Set Apart Spirit. v. 11 David asked Yah to please leave the S.A. Spirit upon him. We all have to have this same approach in order to be on one accord, so the assembly can do their jobs for Yah.
An assembly of Yah is an assembly of Yah at all times. If I get together with 2 of the brothers today, it should be the work of Yah because the spiritual war does not stop. Not just for lectures or Shabbat classes, anytime we come together brothers and sisters we have to treat it as that because the adversary…he’s not resting!! We are always the assembly of Yah at all times. Because the adversary is at work at all times, seeking to destroy anything of Yah at all times. It’s all spiritual. I have heard people say a man is a visual creature. I was thing about that and to me that is proof that when we sin, we are cut off from a lot of spiritual understanding. Adam and Eve didn’t know they were naked until after they sinned. Things became more visual after sinning. Before we allowed the spirit of the adversary to enter us, Yah dwelled with us. When we lost that connection, the spiritual, man became visual. We must pray that Yah’s Spirit dwells in us to see these things and to recognize these spirits when they approach us. We can’t wait until something happens. We have to wake up ready. If we are seeking peace we have to be prepared for war. Being prepared for war is different from seeking war. Anyone giving themselves over to spirits of division and strife must be cut off, thus saith Yah.
Romans 8:37-39 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life nor angels nor principalities nor powers nor things present nor things to come nor height nor depth nor any other created thing shall be able to separate us from the love of Yah which is in Messiah Yahoshua our Master.
These verses prove that these familiar spirits ultimate goal is to lead you away from Yah. Or separate you from the love of Yah, that dividing spirit. You love Yah by obeying His laws. So these spirits may have many different tricks they use to get people but their ultimate purpose in the spiritual war is to divide people from Yah and hinder us from focusing on the will of Yah. Notice angels and principalities, satan has different ranks of angels in his jurisdiction. This is what principalities are, different ranks that make a jurisdiction. These angels cannot separate us from the love of Yah. Now, if any angel or principalities tries to separate you from the love of Yah, then we know who it is that sent it. Don’t we?! So, we see what satan’s ultimate goal is…understanding of the adversary…is always to divide you from Yah.
We always have to remember the big picture of things. An angel of Yah would not come to stop you from obeying Yah’s laws. Yah’s Spirit would not seek to separate you from Yah’s laws because Yah’s word and laws is His Spirit. So that doesn’t make sense! So it’s not talking about any principality of Yah coming to separate you from the love of Yah. When he said principality, he’s talking about from the adversary. Who else would seek to separate you from the love of Yah?
Galatians 5:19-26 read.We see the things to look for in this spiritual realm, both sides. So people will say let’s forget about it now. But the spirit is still lurking. Last time I checked the spiritual war is still going on. It was lurking before any of us were even born. Why do you think it will stop now? We must always be on guard! If your on a physical battlefield during a war, would you just stop in the middle, put down your weapon and say, ‘I got one guy, it’s over’? If you wanted to survive you wouldn’t…stay focused on Yah and be prepared for this spiritual battle at all times. From the moment you wake everyday until the time we lay our heads to sleep! We must stay focused on Yah and be humble. Also, we must cast out any wicked spirits in our midst. Let’s face it we see through history and Scripture that many people will allow satan to use them and they will follow the ways of the adversary. Most people will go against the Scriptures if you want to be real about it. No person is better than the next person but the key is whose striving to be. whose striving for perfection? And who Isn’t? Whose striving to be the image of Yah? Who isn’t?
We are to be humble, loving, forgiving, honest, and caring. But when Yah calls us to do battle He expects that also. Do you think Yah wants to destroy? He doesn’t. Just like He brought the great flood, it sorrowed Yah to do that. But it had to be done in order for a cleansing to take place, in order for Yah’s will to be done on this earth. Just like those who had parents that would put that whipping, discipline on you. What would they do afterwards? ‘Well you know, I love you’, ‘I didn’t want to do that but you have to learn because I’m telling you right’. It’s the same with Yah, He takes no joy in punishment but it must be done because if it is left to man and this world…like He said there would be no flesh left.
Just like when Yah sent Israel into Canaan, you read some of the things they had to do. Do you think Yah took joy in that? But it had to be done because of the spirits those people were harboring. The spirits they choose to allow. Yah even gave them mercy. Genesis 15, He gave the Amorites 4 generations to repent before He prophesied to Abraham that they would be taken out. There are 3 separate prophesies in Genesis 15 but that is another subject. Their actions proved what type of spirits moved them. These people gave themselves over and welcomed these spirits and it was being shown in their actions. Yah knows your heart. So if He said they needed to die, you know there was no righteousness there. Yah was ready to spare Sodom and Gomorrah if one righteous person was found.
When the shofar sounds we must warn the people. The spirit must be exposed and cast out. And when it’s cast out we must remain on guard for the next attack! Evil just keeps on coming. Just like in that movie ‘Fallen’, he said evil just keeps on coming! Y’all should watch this movie and listen to what this angel was telling him. Be prepared for war. This war will go on until Yah ends it. Yah is trying to give the world time to wake up. He’s giving mercy. Look at the history of how Yah has dealt with this world. He has always given grace or mercy. But when He comes back after that time runs out all He will be concerned with is whose spirit you have. And when Yahoshua comes back this time, He’s going to be making war (with the unrighteous).
Again, do you think Yah takes delight in war? It has to be done. Yahoshua will not be talking this time around. Whether we like it or not we all play a part in this spiritual war or else there would not be judgment for us in the end, if we didn’t have choices to make and laws to follow. So as we go through life stay focused on Yah. And before you take action, say to yourself is what I’m about to do making me apart of the adversary’s side or Yah’s side? What role am I playing in the spiritual war with the move I’m about to make. Go back and look at the things Shaul and these brothers did and it’s not hard to understand. These brothers were intoned with Yah and they gave us a lot of deep words, if you listen to what they are saying. It’s all about how we handle things and also with our brothers how we handle things. All that is done must be in the order of Yah, if we are going to call ourselves servants of Yah. That goes for me and anyone else. That is the end of the lesson. I hope it wasn’t too short but this is what Yah gave me. I hope it is a blessing to you as it was to me when Yah revealed it to me. Notes from IH.
