Our Daily Drink 7-1-10
We’re back to Isaiah 56, the whole chapter is only 12 verses long, “Thus says Yahweh: “Keep justice, and do righteousness, For My salvation is about to come, And My righteousness to be revealed. 2Blessed is the man who does this, And the son of man who lays hold on it; Who keeps from defiling the Sabbath, And keeps his hand from doing any evil.”
We covered these first two verses in the 6-30-10 Our Daily Drink.
3Do not let the son of the foreigner Who has joined himself to Yahweh Speak, saying, “Yahweh has utterly separated me from His people”; Nor let the eunuch say, “Here I am, a dry tree.”
I have never shared this with anyone before, that I recall anyway. In the summer of 2006 CE, after the x-file gave me the boot, while reading Scripture and talking with Yahweh, I recall making a vow to Him to be His eunuch. It wasn’t long and I was thrust into full-time street ministry. It’s a good thing that I had made this vow, because I had never heard of such a thing as a drug whore. Apparently, many things are as good as cash on the street. The Holy Spirit kept me strong against the varied schemes of the enemy on the street, by reminding me of my vow. A very useful vow in some situations.
4For thus says Yahweh: “To the eunuchs who keep My Sabbaths, And choose what pleases Me, And hold fast My covenant, 5Even to them I will give in My house And within My walls a place and a name Better than that of sons and daughters; I will give them an everlasting name That shall not be cut off.
I’m also glad I was a Sabbath-keeping eunuch. As I was walking out of Walmart (the true American’s place for legal proceedings, right?), after signing the divorce papers, the x-file spouted out something about being cut off from my children. I rebuked that word. Being a eunuch has special blessings in the Kingdom. I get a place and a name inside the walls of Yahweh’s Kingdom. I’ll take it. I already have a great place and name inside His house, my temple, my body. He’s my blessing. Don’t miss the special blessing of Sabbath-keeping. If you are a Sabbath-keeper, Yahweh will keep you through many dark situations. Being in the temple of your body each day is one thing, but to worship in the sanctuary on the Sabbath, the Glory falls; He manifests His presence on the Sabbath. We honor Him on the Sabbath, He honors us with His presence. Sabbath-keeping is an eternal life type of experience. We will learn a lot more about that during the 1,000-year reign of Yeshua.
6“Also the sons of the foreigner Who join themselves to Yahweh, to serve Him, And to love the name of Yahweh, to be His servants—Everyone who keeps from defiling the Sabbath, And holds fast My covenant—7Even them I will bring to My holy mountain, And make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices Will be accepted on My altar; For My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations.”
Did you know that breaking the 4th commandment, or defiling the Sabbath, means more than just working, or not worshiping on Friday night and Saturday? Antichrist means more than just being against Messiah, it also means replacing Messiah. Sunday worship replaces Saturday Sabbath worship, so it is the spirit of antichrist. The Catholic Church boasts as its “mark” of authority the fact that they have changed the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday. Did you know that when a pope is coronated as pope, they place a hat on his head with this inscription: Vicarius Filii Dei, which mean Vicar of the Son of God. Did you also know that when the Roman numeral value of each letter of that title is added up it equals 666? Here’s a spreadsheet snippet to show you:Vicarius Filii DeiV=5i=1c=100a=0r=0i=1u=5s=0F=0i=1l=50i=1i=1D=500e=0I=1Total=666
The office of the pope is blasphemous through and through. Do Muslims attend mosque on Sunday? Yahweh have mercy on all of us.
8Sovereign Yahweh, who gathers the outcasts of Israel, says, “Yet I will gather to him Others besides those who are gathered to him.” 9All you beasts of the field, come to devour, All you beasts in the forest. 10His watchmen are blind, They are all ignorant; They are all dumb dogs, They cannot bark; Sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. 11Yes, they are greedy dogs Which never have enough. And they are shepherds Who cannot understand; They all look to their own way, Every one for his own gain, From his own territory. 12“Come,” one says, “I will bring wine, And we will fill ourselves with intoxicating drink; Tomorrow will be as today, And much more abundant.””
Verses 8-12 are a sharp rebuke and a warning to all of Yahweh’s people, especially to the leaders in the Church. Watchmen and shepherds are the leaders, in Israel, in the Jewish church, in the Messianic church, in the Gentile church. Leaders beware, this is a day for repenting and seeking Yahweh with a whole broken heart. Tread lightly in dealings with Israel, never come against any of Yahweh’s people. The consequences for what the U.S. Government does to Israel are devastating, i.e. the Gulf oil crisis. Watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPtaMgqOwL4
Yahweh is well able to mute those who speak that which is not right towards Him or His people. The American church has been tempting Yahweh for too long, we will soon feel the heat of His wrath in this nation because of it. Straying from the truth is unwise and dangerous, for the leadership and for the sheeple. The prosperity gospel is about to bite this once great nation.
Ezekiel, the priest turned prophet by Yahweh in the fifth year of King Jehoiachin’s captivity, 3533 = 514 BCE (true chronological year), had an experience of being made mute by Yahweh. His circumstance was a bit different from the verses above, the beasts of the forest, the carnal gentile Babylonians, had come to Israel to destroy it. Look what Yahweh did with Ezekiel. Ezekiel 3:22-27, “Then the hand of Yahweh was upon me there, and He said to me, “Arise, go out into the plain, and there I shall talk with you.” 23So I arose and went out into the plain, and behold, the glory of Yahweh stood there, like the glory which I saw by the River Chebar; and I fell on my face. 24Then the Spirit entered me and set me on my feet, and spoke with me and said to me: “Go, shut yourself inside your house. 25And you, O son of man, surely they will put ropes on you and bind you with them, so that you cannot go out among them. 26I will make your tongue cling to the roof of your mouth, so that you shall be mute and not be one to rebuke them, for they are a rebellious house. 27But when I speak with you, I will open your mouth, and you shall say to them, ‘Thus says Sovereign Yahweh.’ He who hears, let him hear; and he who refuses, let him refuse; for they are a rebellious house.”
After we crush Iran, we fall. Please don’t profane or defile Yahweh’s Sabbath.
