It shall happen that in all the land," says Yahweh, "two parts in it will be cut off and die; but the third will be left in it. I will bring the third part into the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will test them like gold is tested. They will call on my name, and I will hear them. I will say, 'It is my people;' and they will say, 'Yahweh is my God.'"
But I will leave in the midst of you an afflicted and poor people, and they will take refuge in the name of Yahweh.
As I study the roots of Judaism [which are born as a result of the Oral Torah, in conjunction with what Moses received] or that which came out of Babylon and after the destruction of the 1st temple I see a willful ignorance to what God commanded of Israel. I have spoken to so many Jewish people who have said to me that following the edicts of many of the rabbis is akin to being in bondage. One must ask the question: If Judaism is the strength of a nation why do so many Jewish people reject the heart of its teaching. Israel is predominantly a secular nation. Most Jews do tradition and the same is true for many Christians...We have become an audience as opposed to a family of God.
The Church of western imaginations is now thrown under the bus with the Judeo-Christians nation, America virtually crumbling before our eyes. The American public is divided, ideologically feeding on our differences. We are no longer a people raising up a banner for God. We kicked our relationship to God under the bus years ago.
Both countries no longer walk with God. Neither country has relationship with the God of Creation.
The Rabbi's or clergy in Israel are a select group of religious folks who have yet to make Judaism palatable for most of the citizens while in America the various denominations are discussing the legitimacy of gay marriage and tolerating divorce, abortion and just about everything Our Holy God, YEHOVAH warned against.
The consequence has always been death. However, God always saved a remnant
The great dragon was thrown down, the old serpent, he who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world. He was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. When the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. Two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, so that she might be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. The serpent spewed water out of his mouth after the woman like a river, that he might cause her to be carried away by the stream. The earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon spewed out of his mouth. The dragon grew angry with the woman, and went away to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep God's commandments and hold Jesus' testimony. Notice that he comes after the faith based folks since he cannot get those who are protected?
God has always desired relationship...not a religious system. The enemy of God is seated in my opinion over every religious system known in this earth.......Get out of Babylon, Get out of Religion
I am a Christian who has returned to the root...The root is relationship and the more I walk with Abba, Father, through the difficulty of living surrounded by lies I see Him, not a Church or Synagogue! I see life, life eternal. The more that I walk with the gardener the more disdain I have for theology.
Ezekiel 20 and Ezekiel 32 testify concerning the patterns of God's mercy and judgment. For the church to toss out much of what YAHWEH commanded Israel to do tells me clearly that the enemy of God is deceiving the whole world from relationship with YEHOVAH.....Woe to the inhabitants of the earth.
It's almost as if God is saying, "Okay, so you don't want to walk in my statutes, keep my commandments, and obey my laws....Then here, let me introduce you to satan!" Adam, Eve, let me introduce you to, Good & Evil"
God is going to kill Religion. He is going to toss it into a fiery abyss as he restores the relationship that he has always purposed. He is going to restore his family.
Meanwhile or without fail, YEHOVAH continues to honor his covenants, continues to honor the sacrifice of the lamb, and continues to bring to a conclusion the failure of men to choose, life!
