Back to our original question, who are you? That's the question, who are you? They want to know who you are, they want to know. What are you about? I say, we are disciples of Yahushua HaMashiach.
Okay, it is written Acts 19:1 It happened, while
Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper regions came to Ephesus: and finding some disciples. Good one, Acts 21 verse 4, Finding disciples, we
stayed there seven days: they told Paul through the
Spirit, not go up to Jerusalem.
Because they are disciples, I don't think
that term is used quite enough today, they use it a lot and what does it mean it means "taught ones". What is it that we're being taught? Could it be the teaching, the Torah? The word Torah means "teaching", and who are we? We're disciples, we're also according to scriptures the seed of Abraham, if you're Messiah's then you are Abraham's seed and heirs according to the promise. How is it that you become seed of Abraham even if you're gentile? How did you become seed of Abraham?
It's the work of Yahushua HaMashiach in you enabling
you to become a seed of Abraham because it's no longer you who live, it is Messiah Yahushua living in you. He is the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and therefore a part of Israel and therefore you are a part of Israel. Or we like to say and how you actually say in Hebrew, right Hebrew class "Israel".
Ephesians 2:8 says, for by grace you have been saved
through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of Elohim: Not of works, lest anyone should boast. Don't even think for a minute that your Sabbath keeping or Feast keeping or anything we're doing here earned you a ticket into the kingdom. That's not what causes you to be righteous enough to
enter into life.
Only one is righteous enough and that's Yahushua HaMashiach, and last I checked he was the only one that never sinned. So we need him, we need to be connected to him deeply in such a way that really is no longer we who live, but Messiah living in us and we are his workmanship, that means he did it and he's gonna continue to do it, if you let him, remember. Men,
your wives are Yahweh's workmanship. Does she you
know that? Sometimes we think there are workmanship, ultimately they are Yahweh's workmanship and vice versa, ladies. Your husband is not your workmanship, your husband is Yahweh's workmanship only to the extent that we are being used by Yahweh, do we have any rights to do what we do? And we're just farmers we plant, some of my water, Yahweh gives the increase. So we are his workmanship created in Messiah Yahushua for good works which Elohim prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. He already knew you're gonna be at his Feast, he already knew you're gonna keep your very first sicot, for those who did that. And remember that you, what does it say right here? Once gentiles (that means at one time you were Gentiles).
Once gentiles you were called uncircumcision by
what's called circumcision made to flesh by hands. In other words at one time you were a gentile, what are you now?
Who are you?
At that time you were without Messiah being aliens from the Commonwealth of Israel. Well, if at that time you were aliens from the Commonwealth of Israel, what are you now, citizens?
One time you were strangers to the
covenants, parole a promise having no hope and without Elohim in the world but now Messiah Yahushua, you who once were far off when you were once Gentiles, right? Once were far off, you were once far off being a gentile, have been brought here by the blood of Messiah. So now you are Israel, who am I? I'm a disciple, Yahushua HaMashiach. I am the seed of Abraham, I am Israel, now if you're Israel it should go without saying you should be living like Israel, right?
Absolutely, therefore you are no longer strangers,
no longer a gentile, no longer forner, no longer an alien, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of household of Elohim. isten this is your identity, whoever your
physical mommy and daddy is, I mean whatever,
irrelevant. You're adopted, for children who have been adopted I have a message for you. Another man was adopted, his name was Moshe, he was adopted. Samuel the prophet was adopted and Esther was adopted. You're in pretty good company so far right? In fact, Yahushua HaMashiach became the adopted son of Joseph and a matter of fact we're all adopted. So you're in good company, halleluYah. Now it says we are joined together with them, that don't mean we replace Israel; it means we will be joined with Israel.
Hebrews 8:8, Behold, the days are coming, says
Yahweh, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah. That's the new covenant, people say we are Gentiles; we are part of the New Testament church.
How's this work, because the new covenant, New
Testament is with Israel and Judah? How's this work? And if you're still claiming you're a gentile and they claim we are denying Messiah by keeping certain things in the Torah. When really if you think about it we're denying the work of Messiah in that we have become Israel, right? Are we kind of denying what he's done for us? I still say we are gentiles because we were once gentiles. So let's not forget that, not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they did not continue in my covenant, and I disregarded them, says Yahweh. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says Yahweh; I will put my laws in their minds, write them in their hearts: I will be to their Elohim, they shall be my people. Once we understand who we are, your word I have hid into my heart that I might not sin against you. Now I'm repeating some of these things from the first meeting, so that we can build upon that.
So we are validating the Messiah's work in us, when
we manifest obedience to Yahweh's law, demonstrating that his law really is in our hearts. We're validating him and his presence in us as we walk, as he walked we're validating right? And then you know, people not familiar with this word Yahweh, sometimes and they use the name Yahweh, you might be thought to be in some kind of a strange religion somewhere and yet the book of Romans says whoever calls upon the name of Yahweh shall be saved. I want to be saved, how about you? What's so wrong about that, it says they shall see his face, his name shall be on their foreheads. Is his name on your foreheads?
We don't want this name on our foreheads, on her
forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. We don't that on our foreheads right? I'll take Yahweh's name on my forehead, thank you very much. So I just want you to know listen to when you lead the Feast of Tabernacles don't forget who you are,
don't forget who you are, you are Israel.
We don't want any paganism and syncretism and all the other isms, we want Yahushua HaMashiach, him crucified and his life being manifested in our example. Let's, when we leave the Feast of Tabernacles remember who you are, but don't be prideful about it be thankful about it, far better. Be thankful Yahweh has opened your eyes to see the things you see, to hear the things that you hear and give him praise because not a single one of us in this room deserve it, myself included. When we learned the great truth we've learned that really its true whoever commits sin transgresses also because sin is a transgression of the law, therefore we understand that when we choose to wilfully disobey the law of Yahweh we are practicing sin knowingly or unknowingly.
As predicted in the latter days Matthew 24 verse 7-12
and by the way that's Anamiah here, we'll get to in a minute, Greek word number 450 look up your stroms, for nation shall rise against nation, kingdom against kingdom there shall be famines, pestilences, earthquakes, and divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. And they shall deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and you shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then many shall be offended (everyone is offended all the time, you know that?
), and they shall betray one another, and hate one
another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. Because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. The word iniquity once again is anamiah, transgression of the law because transgression of the law shall abound the love of many shall grow cold. It's so evident that what the world needs right now is love, but transgression of the law abounds
Yahushua taught us that love is connected to Torah
keeping and it just so happens the word translated iniquity, the word translated transgression law does really mean what is so strong lexicon has a violation of the law, as its meaning or illegality. And so many are concerned about being legalist, I say I'm more concerned about being illegalist.
Matthew 24 verse 11 so the lawlessness I'm gonna call
Torahlessness will abound the love of many will grow cold, now I'm not trying to condemn anybody here, okay for those who don't hold the same view as I do, just pray about it pray about it. And if you don't see it, okay even if I don't see something, you don't see something Yahushua says if you were blind you would have no sin.
You claim to be the all-seeing one, now look
outright, your sin remains.
None of us are the all-seeing one but we are...
but we do see we're just trying to share truth in light it's such a basic fundamental thing that the transgression of the law is what sin actually is. It's that obvious, that basic and they can't see the trees for the forest or forest for the trees, right. And sometimes we get that way because we look around us we don't see other people applying these things we're like what are you doing different, you know. So he said not everyone who says to me Master, Master shall enter the kingdom of heaven but he who does the will of my father in heaven. Many will say to me in that day Master, Master have we not prophesied in your name, cast out demons in your name and the many wonders in your name? Then I will declare to them I never knew you, depart from me you, you practice. It's the same word in the Greek Amamiah, violation of the law. Now from what I've studied, looking back at the Hebrew it's not just violation of the law its rebellious violation of the law. It's a rebelliousness attached to it, so for not doing so out of rebellion I think we're in a safer place than if we just didn't. If we do and we just didn't do, so maybe I'm lacking understandings somewhere I don't even realize I'm disobeying Yahweh's words somewhere if I judge other people because they don't do what I do what about myself? In fact if I met myself 20 years ago we would have a huge argument, you know I hope that I would win, I
mean this side of me will win, are you in that too,
in a same spot? I wish I meet myself 20 years from now, as long as I'm more advanced but I guess I can't do that. I guess I'll just have to meet Yahushua, and listen to what he has to say, all right. So I don't judge another person for their lack of being where I'm at in my understanding and I hope that we all have the same mentality but we should all be salt and light and share what we understand and reason with one another. Some other scriptures confirm this very thing but it says by the law is the knowledge of sin, the law informs you what sin is. It says here Romans 7:7 even known sin accepted the law, so the law, the Torah is telling us what sin is and what isn't, it's informing us of that. Now very few, not too many Christians are gonna go and say well yeah we can sin all we want after we become believers its no problem, but you can say the same thing, but then you ask him can we violate the law, can we break the Sabbath, clean and unclean.. Oh, yeah, you can do that. But sin is a violation of the law it's all the same, there's no difference you say sin, you say breaking the commandments in the Torah and it's all the same no different.
So law informs us what sin is and this is where
historical Christianity is kinda lost, I think partly through antisemitism, they could not fathom the idea of keeping Jewish Sabbath. He couldn't fathom the idea. So, the eating clean rather than eating unclean is often excluded due to misinterpretation of Peters vision and other scriptures. But listen you can't have one scripture telling us that sin is a violation of the law and then turn around and say it's okay to violate the law you're not sinning it don't work that way is this double talk. Again you cannot say that there, that you're permitted to violate the law and you're not sinning when the scriptures say sin is transgression of the law by the laws and knowledge of sin. I had not known sin except by the law. This common, this basic foundational logic here I mean, it's rocket science? I hope not it's that simple and probably because it is so simple it's easily missed, but that's a fact now we are taught ones. Yahushua came spoke to them saying all authorities has been given to me in heaven and on earth go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing in the name of the father and son, and the holy spirit. Praise Yahweh we did that yesterday, teaching them to observe all things, teaching them to observe, teaching you mean you're teaching someone so they can be taught ones right`? The word disciple kind of clouds everything up I think sometimes, I don't know, somehow I got this idea disciples in my head, Yahushua and his little guys kind of walking behind him you know, they are his disciples you know. But they're are taught ones, they are the ones that were learning Yahushua, are we learning from Yahushua? Are we walking as he walked? That's the question if we are then we are his disciples, we may stumble, we may fall, the main thing is we get back up again. It says the righteous will fall seven times but they get back up again and keep on walking So teaching them to observe all things I've commanded you, now somehow, some people think well this is a temporary commandment, just part of the twelve you know, just for them. Are they all dead or they're alive? I think they're all dead so how could it be that he's with them to end of the age? Is he hanging out there in a grave or somewhere? Now he's talking about us here, this is a commission for all of us. So teach them to observe all things I have commanded you. Well for some reason there this idea, there is a disparity or a difference between...well yeah, there's Yahweh's commandments, the father had his commandments over here, along comes the son to fix the whole problem with Yahweh's commandments here they are too hard to keep. So Yahushua came along and made it you know not so difficult for us, but then the same people will come around and say oh Yahushua he made commandments even harder to keep, that makes sense, that doesn't line up. Oh, you can't even think about adultery, you commit adultery already, see he made it even harder to keep. No he did and already said in Ten Commandments; don't covet your neighbor's wife. He just teaching what the original Ten Commandments actually taught, he wasn't changing anything. So is there a difference? Listen to what he says here, he was asked teacher which is the great commandment in the law, Yahushua said to him you shall love Yahweh your Elohim with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, this is the first and great commandment. And the second one is like it, you shall love your neighbor as yourself on these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. I picture in my head there's this plaque you know, love Yahweh with all your heart, soul and mind is the first and great commandment second one over here love your neighbor as yourself there's little change. You know you got the Torah and the prophets kinda hanging off of these things, you know and there is this kind of picture I got in my mind that says hang off, hang all the law and prophets, hang on these two. What that's telling us is that every commandment in the law and prophets is instruction in how to look, right? All right, so did Yahushua really say, hey guys give me some bolt cutters, let's cut this excess thing off from here. I don't think so, I don't think so now so what Yahushua taught us here is the law teaches us how to love. It is detailed instruction on how to love Yahweh and how to love your neighbor. If your dad made something for you and hand it to you and say, here my son I've done something for you.
Would you be loving your father if you took what he
made and just start trampling on it, act like it didn't exist, no. Didn't it say the Sabbath was made for men? Do we trample it, act like it doesn't exist? You see it really is love to keep the Sabbath, it's a gift he gave to us. Is that love to trample on a Sabbath? Okay. How about our body, he made our bodies, he made it to eat clean food not unclean food and we put unclean things into his temple, is that love? No, all the law in Proverbs is about love and he tells, he gives us beautiful, beautiful holy days and then we come along and say, forget all those. I like these pagan days over here better and I'll try to argue with those days, is that love? Okay I know I'm preaching to the choir I'm gonna get to you next.
I'm giving you some fodder to take home with you,
some words to take home with you, because I'm gonna the next thing which is very important. You know it's important that we do what we're created to do. I've brought... I've told the story for some of you heard it. One day I brought home some ducks, I just... I don't eat duck I just like the beauty of ducks swimming in a pond. And we have a pond in front our house about 30 feet below, you can look down out the window and it's the little ducks all over around the pond. Not that there will be need to watch that So we brought home the ducks in a cage and we're afraid they fly away because they can fly, so we put them at the edge of the pond and we waited a day, just make sure they had food and you kind of tell you know they're looking at that pond because they've never experienced any pond like this before. The only thing he had was one of those kiddie swimming pools and I think they're probably chomping at the bill, to get into that water. When the day came and these amazing creatures that they were, I opened up the cage and it was like fireworks you know they come flying out of that cage, wall around there, need the water and they were splashing everywhere through wings and it was like, yeah this is what we were created to do, we're ducks this is what we do you know and it's like all of Yahweh's creatures are happiest when they're doing what they were created to do. What are we created to do? And we're happiest when we serve Yahweh, right?
And actually all animals are happiest when we mimic
their natural environment that they were kind of created to be in. You know, have you ever tried to get sheep into a corale? They don't like being in there you know. You could deceive them with food, but you know. Man, they get upset you, you're in bad everything else, they're kind of meant to be free. You know out there getting eaten by lions and stuff, anyway. But, no we're called protect them.
All right Genesis 1:26, I love this, Elohim said,
Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness: let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, over the cattle, over all the earth, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So we are created to have dominion, right has dominion. Elohim created man in his own image, in the image of Elohim he created him; male and female he created them. Then Elohim blessed them, said to them, Be fruitful, and multiply, fill the earth, and subdue it: have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, over every living thing that moves on the earth. Have dominion and multiply, so here's our directives, our created purposes, dill the earth, subdue the earth, have dominion over all the earth, have dominion over every living thing that moves on the earth. We enjoy that, take a raw piece of ground go out there and conquer, right? We're gonna make us a little miniature, utopia right here there's a bridge. Well there's a connection between that and our created purpose in Messiah, I wanna show you. Yahushua came and spoke to them saying all authority has been given tome in heaven and earth, go therefore and make disciples and teach them. Did you know that he's telling us the same thing twice? In that our purpose at first, is the same as our purpose here, as a new creation in Messiah Yahushua. I'm gonna show you how if you haven't heard this already. It says Yahushua presented himself alive after his suffering by many infallible proofs having been seen by them 40 days and speaking of them to the things pertaining to the kingdom of Elohim. So Yahushua presented himself alive to the disciples for 40 days. And then verses 6-9, Acts chapter 1, when they come together, they asked him, Master, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel? And he said to them, It is not for you to know times or the seasons, which the Father has put in his own authority. You shall receive power, on the Holy Spirit is come upon you: and you shall be witnesses to me in Jerusalem, and Judea, and in Samaria, and to the end of the earth. Kinda of similar language he's saying, make disciples, right to the ends of the earth. Now when he had spoken these things, while they watched, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. We talked about last week how he was sent to the clouds on the Mount of Olives, he will come back with clouds on the Mount of Olives. Think about what he's saying and look what's being said here this event right here, based on counting 40 days after the resurrection this event right here when Noah stepped off the ark happened on the same day of Yahweh's calendar. But he was speaking to his disciples and say go and fulfil the great commission. He said go out of the ark, you and your wife, your sons, your son's wives with you, bring out with you every living thing of all place that is with you, birds and cattle and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So there may be abound on the earth and be fruitful and multiply on the earth. The same directive as in the book of Genesis; I think about Yahushua was saying to his disciples, be fruitful and multiply in a spiritual sense, be fruitful and multiply. We need more than just 12 here, we need more than 120. Be fruitful and multiply and subdue the earth, have dominion over all the earth, have dominion over every living thing that moves on the earth. I don't mean a dominion that we control everybody but bringing a people into a condition where they are restored and the ground that has been taken by the enemy gets to be retaken by Yahweh through us. See we were created from the dust of the earth, we need vitamins and nutrients on the earth in order to survive. So we go out and we bring someone who is created from the dust of the ground and we bring them into Yahweh's kingdom, we are multiplying and we are subduing the earth for Yahweh. We are taking background given to the enemy by their decision to choose the enemy as their Elohim greater than Yahweh. And so we are as a new creation in Messiah Yahushua we are subduing the earth by bringing it back into subjection to Yahweh and there are people who were conducting themselves in such a way that is not honorable to Yahweh, they're not walking in his image and so we bring into Yahushua HaMashiach who restores them back to that image of Elohim once again, because he is the brightness of Yahweh's glory, his expressed image of his person and hands well the fullness of Elohim, bodily so we become a part of the body of the Messiah and then we are restored to our original condition which is being in the image of Elohim.
And therefore this ground which was once given over
to the enemy, this Suca is temporary dwelling place which was once given over to the enemy, has now become the members of the body of the Messiah and it is subdued for Yahweh. I say subdued it means given back to him just like when Israel went in and they conquered and they were conquering and it says Moshe tell Satan if you do this thing, if you arm yourself before Yahweh for the war and all your armed men cross over to Jordan before Yahweh has driven out his enemies from before him and the land is subdued before Yahweh, because before it wasn't it was under the direction and power of the Canaanite. You may return be blameless before Yahweh and before Israel this land should be your possession before Yahweh. Subdue it for Yahweh he said, how many of you know that we are supposed to be armed men going into the war? We are, no one is on the sidelines, there is no cheerleaders and there is nothing but warriors. The question is whether we're willing to put down our toys and pick up the Armour of Yahweh? That's the question, now the whole congregation of the children of Israel, together at Shilow setup the Tabernacle of meeting there and the land was subdued before them. So our goal is to bring this earth back under the dominion of Yahweh, that's our directive. When Yahushua said what he said go therefore make disciples of all nations, teach them to observe all things that I commanded you. He's saying go forward and take dominion over the earth for Yahweh and bring it back into where people are no longer walking in the image of Yahweh's enemy but are now walking in the image of Elohim. So the created purpose is very much the same as that which was in Genesis. So you know our life is not just about getting to the kingdom. Our joy is not just about the existence of being a believer. Our joy is in serving, our joy is in being used by the most high, our joy is in the.. Wasn't it said it is more blessed to give than to receive. We believe that. We got to believe that it's more blessed to give and there's a reason that really is. And so we all have a role in this effort not everybody's behind a microphone, not everybody is you know giving a teaching or got a website or whatever. We all have a role, it's not for some reason we get this Catholic mentality, the Priest up front, you know, leave it to the experts, you know don't try this at home. It's not how it works, Yahweh wants to be Master of your household, he wants to teach you personally his word and he wants you to be used by him to take part in this effort and so he gave us gifts and the teams know all about this I beseech you therefore brethren by the mercies of Elohim, you present your bodies as a living sacrifice holy acceptable to Elohim which is your reasonable service and do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of Elohim. You can't even find truth, that is, prove what's good acceptable until you present your bodies a living sacrifice and choose not to be conformed by this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. We'll never find truth until we do that, before I say do the grace given to me to everyone who among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but the think soberly as Elohim has dealt to each one a measure of faith. For as we have want many members in one body but all members do not have the same function so we being many are one body in Messiah individually members of one another.
Having the gifts differing according to the grace
given to us, let's use them if prophecy lets prophesy in proportion to our faith, on ministry we use it in our ministering. He who teaches in teaching, he who exhorts in exhortation; he who gives with liberality, he who leads with diligence, he who shows mercy with cheerfulness. It sounds like a whole lot of gifts than teaching up there, wouldn't you say? What gifts do you have? Do you know? Have you ever thought about it? What gifts have Yahweh has given you and how to use them.
Another example 1 Corinthians 12:7,
manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all. For to one is given the word of wisdom to the Spirit (as a gift); to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another different kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But one in the same Spirit works in all these things, it should be to each one individually as he wills. For as the body is one, has many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Messiah. So we become joined to Israel, you become joined to Yahushua HaMashiach and now we have gifts. We all are a part of the body, Yahushua had all the gifts in fullness. We are all a part of the body of Messiah and so the question is, what are our spiritual gifts?
Now that's something to pass out, somebody could
come forward and help passes out couple of people, two or three will be good. Quickly that way slit those up, this is not a
complete list of gifts but its some of them and I
hope it will encourage you to think about, what are my spiritual gifts. When we did our prayers yesterday and also a week ago after baptism, I always pray Yahweh show them what your gifts are. We've built of them your vision for ministry, it's very important and the scripture says for by one
Spirit we're all baptized into one body, whether
Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or freed, it all have been made to drink in one spirit for in fact the body is not one member but many, if the push to say because I'm not a hand I'm not of the body is therefore is it there for now the body?
So if you have a gift, don't assume the guy next
to you has to have the same one. We all have different gifts, don't assume that...and parents don't assume that your gifts are the only gifts that your children ever need.
There are other people in the body of Messiah that
they need to come in contact with like Feast of Tabernacles. That will help them be more complete. If the ear should say because I'm not an eye, I'm not of the body and therefore now the body, if the whole body were an eye what would be the hearing of the whole were hearing where would be the smelling but now Elohim has set the members each one of them in the body just as he please. That was his decision to give you the gifts he's given you. You can be thankful for them and if they were all one member where would the body be but now indeed there are many members yet one body and the eye cannot say the hand I have no need of you nor again to the head to the feet, I have no need of you but much rather those members of the body which seem to leave me weaker are necessary. Every single one of you are necessary, even the little children are necessary. A little Homan blessed me this week, just like walked around like my shadow. He was over there, never seen a little boy take so much interest in just being next to me. Had no real function or I was giving him some peanuts, but that was after he was looking for a while he just kind of hung out for a while and then like hi, okay. I don't know if he felt like he was at home because he watches me on the broadcast. How old is he? 3 years old, what a blessing, he blessed me, he had a gift he blessed me with it, just his presence and his fellowship. So we've got these spiritual gifts in
prophecy I mean, I wish there were a thousand of
us out there and saying thus says Yahweh, we're all the prophets I want to meet one. Now I know that some have a prophetic gift in the sense that occasionally they get a word from Yahweh and they'll tell you it's a word from Yahweh and it is a word from Yahweh. But I love to see, you know, someone you just walk up to, crescent or conjunction? Crescent or conjunction, 14th or 15th? Serving others that's one Yahweh gave me I love serving others, get a kick out of it, I get a big thrill out of it. I'm just using my gift that's all, teaching also but these things they just come natural, they are like a part of who you are and you can see gifts in children when they are small too. My daughter Leana has a gift of help, I'm sitting at the table...oh, I forgot my drink, I'll get it for you. She jumps up wants to be the first one to bring me to drink I forgot, you know things like that. My daughter Michelle has very good wisdom, artistic gifts very bottom there, unusual creativity from time she 4 years old. She was manifesting this gift, little magnet doodle you know. You do that?! You're only 4, you know she practiced that magnet doodle all the time. She loved it. So exhorting means to call someone to your side you know you're not necessarily the guy behind the microphone but you'll be the guy that or the girl, woman that comes on site somebody says hey, I wanna talk to you about something I happen to notice, it's something that I had struggled with too sometimes. You know, you talk to a real humble like and you're able to bring him around the place of understanding and they're corrected by that. Or to the counsel someone, my son, he just has a way with people being able to talk to them, they'll be all bent out of shape and within 5 or 10 minutes they all calm down, I'm like okay, you know. He just has that gift about him. Gift of giving some have financial or spiritual means to give to another, gift of mercy a lot of women have given the mercy. They built this ability to connect with someone and meet them at their place and a place of mercy. Gift the healing is able to bring emotional, spiritual, heart, healing to people by the things you're speaking. Sometimes physical healings I talked about the gift of administration, being able to govern something and administer something and lead something and make it work.
Apostles, we want to say it out, do most missionary
work apostles not just the 12. There were others too but you send out, means one sent. Sent out to do missionary work. Work of miracles, signs and wonders, varieties of tongues and wisdom, all these gifts can be abused too. Someone with the gift of teaching, if they're just hurting people with what they say and that's being abused. Someone with exhortation same thing, someone gift of giving, they have given one to everybody they don't really need a more money thrown at them. They may need something else, it's not solving the problem. A gift of mercy, always merciful even when someone needs a little hard work; you know they need a tough love. See, not every time and you have to be careful and use the gifts correctly, biblically as Yahushua would and so I'd like to get the help, here let me help you, help you, help you, help you, you're not really helping you just interfering. You probably never experienced that before, now we all have. So there's ways to use and ways to misuse the gifts. But you see here I got on the paper scale of 1 to 10 and those of you who are online you can download this paper ellyah.com/gift.pdf and I printed out and then try to find the areas, just pray about it, ask Yahweh to show you what are my gifts? This is not the complete list again, it's not the complete list, but ask Yahweh to show you what your gifts are. And then use them to fulfill that great commission and that's the beauty of it, see we need these gifts in each other, the world needs these gifts operating in us and we need to recognize them to be able to effectively fulfil our purpose why we were created, our purpose in the Messiah Yahushua as a new creation. We have to be able to recognize these gifts and then use them correctly.
Scripture says there is a generation I curse as its
father, does not bless its mother. Is that our generation? Sadly, the generation pure in its own eyes yet not washed from its filthiness, is that this generation? There is a generation how lofty are their eyes and their eyelids are lifted up, there is a generation whose teeth are like swords, whose fingers are like knives to devour the poor from earth, the needy from among men. All under the guise of love. You know results of another generation, and
that's the generation that we are.
We are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, his own special people that's who you are. Don't be prideful, be thankful that you may proclaim the praises of him who called you out of darkness into its marvellous light and I'm witnessing and this generation that we live in right here I'm witnessing the righteous becoming more righteous and more understand of how to walk in righteousness and the wicked also learning how to be more wicked. And something is gonna move somewhere because when light is darkness, there's a song I once heard goes, something is gonna move.
But this is who you are, you got embrace who you
are, identity is powerful. If I decided I'm going to be a biker don't laugh,
get my leather gourmets on, give me a big Harley,
go down the road with sunglasses. I do the things the bikers do right, well if I'm going to be a chosen generation or holy priesthood priest a holy nation i want to be Israel, I'm gonna choose to be his special people and guess what I'm going to do what we're supposed to do, to fulfil that identity.
That's how powerful identity is, that's why
there's gains they all got their identity as a gain they've got a little tattoo or whatever. They've chosen an identity; we have chosen an identity, Israel.
I should say Yahweh chose an identity for you;
you're just living in it, right. Okay, so he has chosen our generation for such a time as this, what are we doing let's not be to see him,
sort of halfway on the thermometer.

I don't think there's been generation seen so many
people come and embrace both Torah and Messiah since the first century. Maybe there has, I don't know but I look at the Feast of Tabernacles and I see a message to live simply, rejoice in trials, remember all things are temporary, enjoy the picture of kingdom life that you see that's our future, value fellowship, value relationships, hear the word of Yahweh and let
go of stuff you don't really need.

It's just gonna grow up like a thorn from the
bush, keep you from being fruitful.
Yahweh wants our eyes to be turned away from
worthless things. Turn away from my eyes from looking at worthless things and revive me in your way, establish your word to your servant who was devoted to fearing you, what a full beautiful prayer. Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things, revive me in your way, establish your word to your servant, I fear you Elohim. You feel it? I feel it, set nothing wicked before my eyes, I hate the work of Hollywood, and whatever else is on the Internet that we don't need to be looking at. It shall not cling to me, the first part shall depart from me, I will not know wickedness; don't need to know about every little wicked thing that come out next. You don't have to know about it, they are all talking about something, you don't have to ask, that's probably not good anyway.
See back home the war is still going on, we kind of
took a little rest for the year, for a week, it's awesome. I haven't left this Feast site since before it started; I've not left this camp since before it started. I'm not looking forward to leaving either, you know some of you have wars going on back home, the battle is still raging and even fighting this battle and these trials and you realize this is not peacetime. It's a battle for our lives, it's a battle for our souls, you know it's in some temporary battle, one nation, fights another nation then take ground and the other nation gets it back and all. The ground you get now in the spiritual, you keep
for eternity, this battle we are in has eternal
consequences and the battle we fight we must win and we can win, because greater is he who is in us than he who is in the world.
So let's put our hope in the heavenly riches set
not your eyes on the things which are not. Surely they fly away like an eagle toward heaven, if you know the proverb. Yahweh has given us some, a bit of a rest here at the Feast of Tabernacles and we've got to take what we have here and carry it with us.
We receive strength this year because we separate
ourselves from the earthly things for a while, we bound ourselves together by the spiritual living Elohim, let's not go home and go back to the old yak again or the old habits that we know are not right. Let's go home and say you know what. I'm finished with that stuff whatever it is, I don't even know what it is, I'm finished with all that stuff. I'm gonna go home and fight Yahweh's battles, I want to go home and take land away from the enemy.
I want to go home and I want to see the power of
Yahweh work through me like he works through the disciples of Yahushua. I could work to so many people over the years and just because, again, you're not teaching behind the microphone. It doesn't mean you can't go in a nursing home and talk to these people who are in prison. It doesn't mean you can't be a big brother or a big sister to a fatherless child. It doesn't you cannot go and visit a family member who seems to be an outcast, there are so many people who are hurting in this world, it doesn't mean you can't talk to somebody at Wal-Mart about the good hope that's in you. Because the only thing the enemy needs us to do in order for him to win the battle is do nothing.
We've got to pick up our armor and use it.

Babies and children are being abused, what are we
doing about it? The most innocent babies of all are being murdered in the most protected place, why is it that the most dangerous place to live in America is not some back alley somewhere it's inside Mommy.
Hollywood is corrupting the world; children are
growing up without dads, or very poor dads.
The second you're not being healed, the
prisoners are not getting visitors; those with addictions are not being set free.
People are turning away from Messiah, some have
never even heard of him, 10 40 window what are we doing about it? The Body of Messiah is not giving itself to prayer enough what are we doing about it? Public school teaching damnable humanism what are we doing about it? Tell me there is not a war going on, there is a war going on. It's just we've been too desensitized to everything, its commonplace. Do we love...? If there's no war going on it's because you've already waived the white flag. We contend to sit there in your own little utopia and do nothing about it. Let's go fight Yahweh's battles, don't let the world change you, change the world.
Don't let the world turn us into their clones, we
are disciples of Yahushua HaMashiach, not disciples of Hollywood or some other thing that's being presented as an alternative. Let's turn the world upside down by living of the word of Yahweh as it was originally intended to be lived out what the fullness of Yahweh's Torah, the fullness of Messiah dwelling in us, and show people what Yahushua really was like.
You have an important role in this world, every one
of us are important people in this generation more important than the President of the United States, more important than anybody, the body of Messiah and we are the ones, we are the carriers of the full good news of Yahushua HaMashiach.
And you individually there's never been a
person like you, and there will never be another one like you. He has created you for a specific purpose, what are you doing? I say don't hide your talent in a sin, go forth be fruitful and multiply.
Let's come away from the Feast of Tabernacles and
face the culture we live in with boldness, strength and conviction, let's bring the spirit of Suco home. To the communities we live in with a renewed focus on pursuing the spiritual things rather earthly things. He says everyone who thirsts, and you who have
no money come by and eat, yes come by, wine and milk
without money, without price. The word of Yahweh needs to be free, without charge, freely we received, freely we give. Why do you spend money for what's not bread and your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to me and eat what is good and you let your soul delight itself in abundance. Incline your ear and come to me, here in your soul shall live and I will make an everlasting covenant with you to share mercies of David.
Look at those words I just sit there and marvel at
the word of Yahweh, how about you? I mean I just, it's a calling come to come to the waters. That says Yahweh who made and formed you from the womb, who will help you, who will help you fear not O, my servant and you upright one. It's what he calls you upright one, whom I have
chosen he chose you out of this world.

For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, and

floods on a dry ground; I will pour my spirit on
your descendants, and my blessing on your offspring. They will spring up among the grass like willows by the watercourses. You young people you inspired me, I see it, he has poured out water upon you, all of us.
So Yahushua says on the last it's a great day of
the feast, Yahushua stood and cried out saying if anyone thirsts let him come to me and drink. If anyone thirsts, come to me and drink, he is our source of everything, through him everything. He who believes as the scripture has said, his heart will flow rivers of living water. It's time to drink the living waters. Amein.
