Spiritual Warfare Skill – Back to Basics

When you go to the market to buy food produce; do you buy everything you see at the first glance? With patience you check and only pick the best ‘fruits that are fresh and not rotten, rancid or mouldy. This must be applied in spiritual warfare; for is not everything you see around or hear related to religion are from our True God [ADONAI Elohim]- The enemy is very busy at work- Our Commander in Chief, Jesus Christ of Nazareth [Yeshua] has warned us in the book of Matthew 24:23-24 that, “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here’s the Messiah,’ or ‘There He is,’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and show great signs and wonders so as to lead astray, if possible, even the chosen; HE went further to warn us in Matthew 7:15-20 that,  “Watch out for false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruit. Grapes aren’t gathered from thorn bushes or figs from thistles, are they? Even so, every good tree produces good fruit, but the rotten tree produces bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a rotten tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire.  So then, you will recognize them by their fruit [Love].

Paul the Apostle wrote in 1 Corinthians 11: 1 that, ”Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Messiah”. The most important of all values as a soldier, is to be ready to learn from your commander; you can then be able to put into practice skills learnt – all other elements of soldiering is built on the application of basic skills. When you start a new job, School, University, or join any organization, you are given set of rules, guidance or procedures to follow. We all do everything possible to follow these, so we don’t loose our position, be ‘fired’ or get sacked. In physical warfare, often times you need to have easily accessible rules of engagement with the enemy. If you’re not prepared, you could be overwhelmed should you come under heavy artillery. The only standard guidance as soldiers of Yeshua is the Holy Scriptures, Bible– The basic instruction before we all leave this Earth one day. Do you read your bible everyday to be prepared for the spiritual warfare we face 24/7? The basic guidance and procedures for the salvation of your soul are all found in the Holy Scriptures. Some of these basic guidance are- strive to follow the Ten Commandments; have a forgiving heart; Love your neighbor as yourself; accept and believe that, Jesus Christ is the son of God and that, by HIS Blood shed on the cross you’re saved, being ‘Born From Above‘ with the baptism of the Holy Spirit and Repentance. Romans 3:23 tells us that, “for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God.”

The Holy Scriptures says that, sin is violating the Ten Commandments—so why has the law been described as irrelevant and old-fashioned by many modern theologians? The simple answer is that the enemy is at work. Don’t be deceived. Most church leaders, Pastors and all the other self-titled leaders are leading so many people astray. The book of Jacob (Known as James) 1:17 tells us that, God, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. Malachi 3:6 also affirmed this, ”“For I am Adonai. I do not change, So you, children of Jacob (Israel), are not consumed and the book of Ecclesiastes 3:14, ‘place the icing on the cake’, this tells us that ”I know that everything that God does will endure forever. There is no adding to it or taking from it. God has made it so, that they will revere Him. Brothers and Sisters, Yeshua of Nazareth, our commander in chief in all our invisible and visible battles, spoke so much about Hell in the Besorah (The Good News) than any other topic. Why? The simple truth is that, Heaven and Hell exist. The parable of the rich man and Lazarus is a well-known parable of Jesus appearing in the Gospel of Luke 16:19-31. In the parable, Jesus tells his audience – his disciples and some Pharisees – of the relationship, during life and after death, between an unnamed rich man and a poor beggar named Lazarus. The Good News in Matthew 25:41 is that, the everlasting fire was not created for me nor you, but for the devil and his angels. Who do you want to follow and obey, Jesus Christ of Nazareth or the World

So, what happened to the sabbath day – which is few minutes before sunset on Friday evening until the appearance of three stars in the sky on Saturday night? This has since been observed by the Jews whilst in the dessert heading to the promise land (Israel) till this day; if this Law were to be changed, it would be reasonable to expect God Himself to announce it, and give reasons for its alteration don’t you think? Yeshua said in Matthew 5:17-18 that, “Do not think that I came to abolish the Torah [The Law of Moses] or the Prophets [Neviim]! I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill.  Amen, I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or serif shall ever pass away from the Torah until all things come to pass”. Yet for more than 2,000 years now, most believers have worshiped on Sunday. Why? The book of Daniel described a “little horn power” in Chapter 7:25-26 that, ”He will speak words against the Most High, and will continually harass the kedoshim [holy ones]of the Most High, and will try to change the appointed times and law. The kedoshim will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time. But the court will sit and he will be stripped of his power to be destroyed and abolished for all time” . Apostle Paul made a similar prediction in 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 that, “Let no one deceive you in any way, for the Day will not come unless the rebellion comes first and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the one destined to be destroyed. He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he sits in the Temple of God, proclaiming himself that he is God.” Apostle Paul also warned us in the book of Acts 20:28-30 that, “Take care of yourselves and all the flock of which the Ruach ha-Kodesh [Holy Spirit] has made you overseers, to shepherd the community of God —which He obtained with the blood of His own.  I know that after my departure, savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Even from among yourselves will arise men speaking perversions, to draw the disciples away after themselves.

About 100 years before Christianity, Egyptian Mithraists introduced the festival of Sunday, dedicated to worshiping the sun, into the Roman Empire. Later, as Christianity grew, church leaders wished to increase the numbers of the church. In order to make the gospel more attractive to non-Christians, pagan customs were incorporated into the church’s ceremonies. The custom of Sunday worship was welcomed by Christians who desired to differentiate themselves from the Jews, whom they despised because of the Jews’ rejection of Jesus Christ- Yeshua at the time. The Roman Emperor Constantine I, a ‘former sun-worshiper’, professed conversion to Christianity, though his subsequent actions suggest the “conversion” was more of a political move than a genuine heart change. Constantine named himself Bishop of the Church and enacted the first civil law regarding Sunday observance in A.D. 321.  This Century, Pope Francis approved changes to words of Lord’s Prayer also known as the ‘Our Father’, Published June 6, 2019 by USA Today. Instead of saying, “Lead us not into temptation,” we will now say, “Do not let us fall into temptation, in his own words, ” this is because “It is not a good translation ,it speaks of a God who induces temptation”. A Loving Father doesn’t do that; a Father helps their child to get up immediately when they fall. It’s the enemy that leads us into temptation, that’s ‘his works’. Brothers and sisters, have you seen this change in your churches or publicly announced on Global News Networks? Did Yeshua -Jesus Christ actually say these words? The Lord’s Prayer comes from the Gospels in which Jesus taught his disciples the prayer. It is among the most sacred prayers in the World. The enemy with full control of ‘the World Order’ has been at work over several centuries, standardizing the way we worship God instead of being directed by the Holy Spirit. The enemy has been interpreting and changing God’s commandments in the Holy Scriptures over and over with different translations so that the truth is lost. Jesus Christ told Peter the disciple in Matthew 16:18 that, ”And I also tell you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My community ; and the gates of Sheol [Hell] will not overpower it.” Yeshua did not say a church, because we are the church [our hearts- GOD’s Temple], don’t be deceived.

Now you know the truth and the significance going back to the basics for your salvation. Don’t be fooled and deceived  – seek the truth yourself by reading your the Holy Scriptures daily in Spirit [Heart]. Jesus Christ said in John 8:31-32, “Then Yeshua said to the Judeans who had trusted Him, “If you abide in My word, then you are truly My disciples. You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free!”. Follow the ten commandments and observe the sabbath. Make every effort to enter God’s rest and don’t fall through the same pattern of disobedience. Hebrews 4:9-10 say, ‘So there remains a Shabbat rest for the people of God. For the one who has entered God’s rest has also ceased from his own work, just as God did from His. Meditate on the Lord’s prayer daily for is a powerful medium thought by Yeshua. Don’t destroy your soul going around different places striving to learn how to pray and speak in tongues; or perhaps looking for ‘quick solution’ to your afflictions. But rather allow the Holy Spirit that lives in you to guide you to pray, because the devil also speaks in tongues and is ‘destructive’. Remember the promise in 1 Corinthians 3:16, ”Don’t you know that you are God’s temple and that the Ruach Elohim [Spirit of God] dwells among you?” Yeshua said the whole commandments is summed up in this sentence in Luke 10:27, …, “You shall love Adonai your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” If you love God, you will follow HIS commandments.  

Prayer Point  

Oh, Holy spirit – lead my heart, so that, I don’t fall for things of this world, for when YOU bestow a blessing our Lord God, it is forever; Let Love Lead me in everything I do. Have mercy on me in Jesus Christ [Yeshua] name I pray. Amen

Accepting Yeshua [Jesus Christ] in your heart [Spirit]

There is a Promise in the Holy Scriptures at John 3:16, ‘For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life’ .

Jesus Christ foretold the ‘signs of the end of time’ in Matthew 24, …the Good News of the kingdom shall be proclaimed in the the whole world as a testimony to all nations and then the end will come.

All you have to do now is accept YESHUA– Jesus Christ as your Messiah in your heart; and if you do this willingly this day at this very hour, you will be saved just like the criminal on the cross with Jesus Christ in Luke 23:42-43, ”And he said, “Yeshua, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”Yeshua said to him, “Amen, I tell you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.” There is no true loving parent that will lock their door in the middle of the night to a rebellious child. They either wait for them to come back or go out looking for them. So what do expect Our Loving Father HaShem to do? The door to come back into the kingdom of God is open for you. Yeshua is the only way to the Father. Is never too late to be saved and there is no sin ever committed that, God can not forgive, if you willingly come to HIM with repentance.

Now tell someone you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal saviour today; Jesus Christ called everyone to Himself publicly.

Yeshua is the Lion of the tribe of Judah that was slain for all your sins and with HIM you will face no judgement on the last day, no matter your religion, gender, race or believe. The Holy Scriptures of Revelation 5 promises us that, by Yeshua’s blood shed on the cross we are all saved. Just believe…

God bless you, Amen Amen Amen.
