“Therefore render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to Elohim the things that are Elohim’s.” (Mat 22:21)
Most people just assume that Yeshua did render to Caesar the tribute money. This idea is very troubling to me because I see many times where a story in the New Testament has been twisted 180 out of sync to justify the harlotry to which our own hearts and eyes are inclined. As I have stated in the past, this is why Yehovah’s men wear tzitzit.
Again Yehovah spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the sons of Israel: Tell them to make tassels on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and to put a blue thread in the tassels of the corners. And you shall have the tassel, that you may look upon it and remember all the commandments of Yehovah and do them, and that you may not follow the harlotry to which your own heart and your own eyes are inclined, and that you may remember and do all My commandments, and be holy for your God. (Num 15:37-41
So did Yeshua render to Caesar the tribute money? What is tribute anyway? Webster’s 1828 dictionary defines tribute this way. Continue reading Render to Caesar … (1)
If we will not die to self now, and live completely for YehovahÂ Elohim (God) before the tribulation; then we will have to die in the tribulation, to be His.
After Yeshua (Jesus) died and had risen, it was Peter who said, in his typical, unthinking, fleshly, Neanderthal manner “I’m goin’ fishin’!” and then took six of Yeshua’s disciples with Him. Fishing is how he had always made his living; so he was returning to his old ways of providing for his flesh.
Later that day Yeshua [gesturing toward the fish which Peter and the rest of the disciples had caught] asked Peter, “Do you love me more than these? Then feed My sheep!”
What is our energy going towards today? Fish or sheep? (Please read the story in John 21 here.) Continue reading Goin’ Fishin’ Today? – John 21
â€œFrom whence comes the purpose of a person’s life? Come it by chance, a casting of the lot, or does a call of destiny beckon to each of us?â€ – From the movie ‘One Night with the King
It is my firm belief that our Creator has a destiny, an eternal purpose for each of our lives and it is my wish to effect those around me to embrace all that our dear Fathers has for them. We, His people, were not meant to be the slaves to this world; but rather the leaders, teachers, kings and priests of a holy nation and to demonstrate for the world the ways of Yehovah, so that they too may walk in them.
“Surely I have taught you statutes and judgments, just as Yehovah (the LORD) my God commanded me, that you should act according to them in the land which you go to possess. Therefore be careful to observe them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the peoples who will hear all these statutes, and say, ‘Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.’ “For what great nation is there that has God so near to it, as Yehovah our God is to us, for whatever reason we may call upon Him? And what great nation is there that has such statutes and righteous judgments as are in all this law which I set before you this day? (Deu 4:5-8)
I have always felt God’s call on my life; but it was not until I began to seek Him, to step out of my comfort zone and do His will, that I began to see His plan for this world, and for my life in particular, begin to unfold.
Unfortunately, not everyone could see what I began to see so clearly and this resulted in the momentary loss of my precious family. Momentary is relative, they are not back yet; but I believe that, like Joseph, I have been sent ahead to help preserve them and many others alive.
It was at that time that I began my first website which was mainly to articulate what I was learning concerning Yehovah’s image and Kingdom on the earth to my wayward family. But it was not long before Continue reading A Call of Destiny
