I have often heard the phrase “When you enter the land” mentioned in discussion on the applicability to a specific commandment. I have previously spoken about our logic getting in the way of our obedience. Could the use of this condition be another example of us trying to reason which of the instructions of YHVH to obey? A good example of this is the sabbatical year. Should we or shouldn’t we keep the instructions regarding the sabbatical year? Is it only applicable to people living in Israel or is it applicable to all? What about the pilgrimage feasts? Should we go to Israel three times a year or not? Let us do a detailed study of this phrase and see what conclusions we can make and how that needs to be applied in our lives today.
Can words be measured? Can words be weighed?
What is the measure of my words?
6 Let Him weigh me with accurate scales, And let יהוה know my integrity.
What does weighing and scales have to do with words or with integrity? Picture an old scale, maybe an ancient scale that uses weights for measurement. Now let us say Abba YHVH’s instructions are the weights against which our words are weighed. Put the Word of YHVH into the one weighing pan and your words in the other. How do your words measure against His Word? Would you not like your words to be in perfect balance with YHVH’s. Is that at all possible?
Last time I spoke of the different sources of deception that would exist in the end time. During the last week I ran into one of these and this reminded me of my days in South Africa when apartheid was still enforced. I have found the similarities between the two very revealing but also see the decpetion that is once again built on a bit of truth. Be aware and take note that this does not deceive you.
Recently we received a link to an article that was posted on the website of a group called “Restorers of Zion”. They have published a document that we believe would be most beneficial for a wider audience to read. It is a prophetic vision that explains to us the Father’s view of the current Messianic community. It is really a document that will make you stop and think! We are re-publishing this document for you to read, think and pray about, as we believe the application of this message may be much wider than originally intended.
