THE FEAST OF DEDICATION. OUR PREPARATION FOR THIS FEAST
Our Theme, For THE FEAST OF DEDICATION 2022: REMAINING TRUE TO (God /) YAHUAH & STANDING FIRM IN THE FACE OF PERSECUTION.
SOME BACKGROUND TO EVENTS
Todays excerpt from 2 Macc 6-7, explores some of the historical events around this FEAST, and looks at some of the most egregious crimes performed by the Seleucid’s against our people, in their push to enforce apostasy and unrighteousness amongst our people. It gives the background to just some of the events that drove Judas Maccabeus and his brethren to take up arms to fight. I hope no one finds too upsetting.
OBEDIENCE BRINGS BLESSING
Unfortunately its too simplistic an argument to blame GENTILES and/ white people for our plight, they will surely give an account to YAHUAH for what they have done, make no mistake, but the REALITY is that if we'd been OBEDIENT and OBEYED YAHUAH's VOICE as were instructed to, many of these things wouldn't have befallen us, as the author points out in this short reading.
THE DANGER OF IGNORANCE
As I've always said its a v dangerous thing to be of the HOUSE OF ISRAEL and not know that you are under a COVENANT. Ignorance of this fact can be fatal for HEBREWS, we see the evidence around us, and our people everyday, but many don't understand what they are seeing...
WE'RE IN THE SAME BATTLE TODAY, ONLY SPIRITUALISED…
We remain TODAY very much in the throes of the same type of BATTLE, as JUDAS and our FOREFATHERS fought, so long ago. Unfortunately too many of us are either fast ASLEEP,💤 or not on the battleground either from feeling powerless or from refusing to acknowledge our condition or plight, hence there is CARNAGE on the BATTLEGROUND. Apologies for being so direct Family. I don’t take pleasure in saying any of this, or do so lightly.
THE OCCULT CRAFTY COUNSEL OF THE WICKED AGAINST YASHAR’EL
Now our battle, is NOT a physical fight, not a single one of us should be in STRIFE, argument or contending against anyone whatsoever for any cause in the NATURAL/ physical. Indeed these behaviours are luxuries YASHAR’EL cannot afford if she is going to “STAND AGAINST THE WILES OF the devil” effectively Eph 6:11 and this is where men particularly I notice seem to struggle, because the BATTLE is now spiritualised, Ps 83:3 tells us that the nations, which includes The TABERNACLES (meaning fraternities) of EDOM, (see Ps 83:6) which is where we live today, amongst Edom; from BIBLICAL times to date continue to “TAKE CRAFTY COUNSEL” against YASHAR’EL.
A FAILURE TO UNDERSTAND THE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
This is a battle not now fought as JUDAH fought with physical WEAPONS, Eph 6:12 reminds usm is not a CARNAL fight
“We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rules of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
Unfortunately YASHAR’EL’S having either not understood or applied THE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT to counter the agenda of the ENEMY through WARFARE PRAYER has meant they (ie: the enemy) has been able to use the same STRATEGY successfully from the TIMES of King DAVID to the PRESENT.
THE FOLLY OF YASHAR’EL
So now you see part of the reason for their vain BOASTING and PRIDE, we’ve made it easier for them than taking candy from a baby. Incidentally I should add this is part of their occult knowledge kept within their fraternities, which is why is a crying shame that so many of our people, HEBREWS go into their SECRET SOCIETIES which YAHUAH HATES. However, they should by now be able to see, having “SOLD THEMSELVES FOR NOUGHT” (Is 52:3) that they’ve still got fundamentally nowhere. Incidentally our people are not even permitted to join some levels and ranks of these institutions.
REPENT & RENOUNCE UNRIGHTEOUS COVENANTS
I would urge you if you have been part of any of these institutions to REPENT, RENOUNCE all covenants and oaths you have taken and undertake DELIVERANCE to sever the connection you'll now have between your SOUL and SPIRIT. It is this connection that adherents to Eastern &/ false religions erroneously call 'the third eye', (see Heb 4:12).
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
However am digressing.
CASUALTIES OF WAR
Unfortunately there is no opportunity to ‘sit the conflict out’. If you are YASHAR’EL-ITE you are already in it. We are in a TIME where no one is any longer able to sit on the FENCE, to attempt to sit on the fence us to become a CASUALTY, everyone by degrees is being forced to pick a side and stand on it.
WILL YOU GET IN THE ‘FIGHT’?
I am hopeful our people will WAKE UP soon, to their TRUE IDENTITY, and adopt the correct posture YAHUAH is waiting for from us. REPENTANCE and a willingness to now come together to PRAY, FAST do the hard WORK, the SPIRITUAL warfare needed to now CRY to YAHUAH “TO TURN THE BATTLE TO THE GATE” (Is 28:6) precisely as our Forefather JUDAH did?
