2012 Woman’s Retreat Discussion
THE BRIDE OF HAMASHIACH, THE MESSIAH, CHRIST
Sisters, how real are we before YAHWEH ALMIGHTY GOD. How real are we before each other! It is impossible to hide anything from YAH, but we can hide things from each other, not for long, it will be exposed.S (1 CO 4:5). If you choose to walk according to the flesh, loving the world and the things in the world will profit you nothing
PROV. 24:12 “…it is GOD WHO searches the thought of the heart; and he WHO keeps your soul knows it, and shall render to every man according to his works.”
IS. 62:11 REWARD ACCORDING TO DEEDS. MATT 16:27 Behold, the LORD has proclaimed to the ends of the earth, say to the daughter of Zion, behold, your SAVIOUR comes; behold, his reward is with him and his work before him. For the SON of man will come in glory of his FATHER with his holy angels; and then he will reward each man according to his works.
We must lay down our sins, iniquities, and transgressions. We are saved by grace through our Faith in YESHUA the MESSIAH. Brought out of sin. Drawn by the YAH to accept YESHUA the MESSIAH. We can no longer live a life of sin no matter how big or small.
We are the Bride of the MESSIAH (this also includes men!) and the lands of the wicked has been given to us. We have authority over the enemy and he will not prevail.
GEN 24:60 And they blessed Rebekah their sister, and said to her, you are our sister, be the mother of thousands and of millions, and let your descendants inherit the lands of their enemies. “I tell you also that you are the stone, and upon this stone I will build my church; and the doors of Sheol shall not shut upon it Matthew 16:18.”
We have to act like the wife. If we do, when we sleep, will be everlasting life, but, if we act like the harlot, adulterer, idolaters, everlasting contempt, when we sleep we want our good works to follow us and to shine. I want to have immortality, how about you? When MESSIAH YESHUAH returns we, if we are the Bride, dead or alive we will met our Bridegroom YESHUA in the sky! HalleluYAH!
DAN 12:2,3 And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life and some to shame and everlasting contempt, and those who have done good and the men of understanding shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and those who have turned many to righteousness shall shine and stand like stars for ever and ever.
1 COR. 15:50, 51-53 Now this I say, my brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of GOD; neither does corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all die, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet shall sound and the dead shall be raised incorruptible and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption and this mortal must put on immortality.
1 THESS 4:15-18; IS 26:19-21 “For our LORD HIMSELF shall descend from heaven with a shout and the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of GOD; and those who died in CHRIST will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet our LORD in the air; and so shall we ever be with our LORD. Therefore comfort one another with these words.
For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and destroys his soul (Mat 16:26)?
Is 28:16 sure foundation (ROSH PINA) CHIEF CORNER STONE, YESHUA the MESSIAH
WHAT DOES DEATH MEAN?
Death is eternal separation from the FATHER and HIS SON YESHUA.
The Five virgins were left behind because they were not prepared. They did not have oil in their lamps (Matthew:1) . Not ready because they did not have the SPIRIT of YAH leading or guiding you on the paths of righteousness. What about you?
YESHUA does not know you. The fruit being produced is not good (Matthew 7:23)! You are living your own way, you are without Torah/Word of YAH. Are you bearing good or bad fruit?
Is the RUACH/HOLY SPIRIT not keeping you to the end, to the day of redemption ( Ephesians). Have not accepted YESHUA as SAVIOR, MASTER, PROTECTOR, PERSERVER, PRINCE OF PEACE, HUSBAND, PROVIDER and so much more of your lives. Are you Born Again (John 3:1-12)
THEY WORD IS A LAMP UNTO MY FEET AND LIGHT UNTO MY PATH (SONG, PS. 119:103-105). WHO AND WHAT LEADS YOU DAILY?
YESHUA the MESSIAH is the LIGHT of the world, HE is also he WAY, the TRUTH, the LIFE , Amen, HalleluYAH (John 8:12; 14:6)!
You need the LIGHT to show the right path to take. There is a strait gate and a narrow path leading to life that a few find it and a wide gate and broad path, leading to destruction, many choose to go that way (John 7:13-14). Which one do you find yourself on?
The WORD of YAH is a guide to our feet. All IT’s ways are pleasantness and all IT’s paths are peace (Proverbs 3). YESHUA is the LIGHT. HE has given us HIS SPIRIT to bring us into righteousness and can only bring us peace as HE guides us on HIS paths. This occurs when you accept YESHUA and the SPIRIT of YESHUA comes and lives in you and you are reconciled back to YAH GOD. Then SPIRIT of YESHUA/HOLY SPIRIT guide our paths.
“Ruach Ha Kodesh/ HOLY SPIRIT – Reveals and teaches the Word of YAHWEH, Truth of YAHWEH, to us so that we are not in darkness (John 14:15-29; John 15:14-27; John 16:4-11; 2 Corinthians 4:6)!
Hey Sisters, pick up your execution stake, your tree of death, your cross and follow YESHUA the MESSIAH (Matthew 16:24).
YESHUA warns us to watch, sudden destruction, comes like a thief in the night (Mark 13:38, I Thessalonians 5:3) .
Walking in the ways of YAHWEH and directing your love towards HIM and one another and obey YAH’s command ( Deuteronomy 6:5; Matthew 22:37-40; Leviticus 19; John 14:21, 23) .
Yeshua keeps us from eternal separation from YAHWEH (John 3:16)..
We shall be known by our fruit.
” Enter in through the narrow door, for wide is the door and broad is the road which leads to destruction, and many are those who travel on it. O how narrow is the door and how difficult is the road which leads to life, and few are those who are found on it. Be careful of false prophets who come to you in lamb’s clothing, but within they are ravening wolves. you will know them by their fruits. Do they gather grapes from thorns or figs from thistles? So every good tree bears good fruit; but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, neither can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree which does not bear good fruit will be cut down and cast into the fire. Thus by their fruit you will know them. It is not everyone who merely says to me, MY lord, MY lord, Who, will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of MY FATHER in Heaven. A great many will say to me in that day, MY LORD, MY LORD, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name cast out devils and in your name do many wonders? Then I will declare to them, I have never known you; keep away from me, O you that work iniquity.”(Matthew. 7:13-23)
RELATIONSHIP WITH YAH THROUGH FAITH IN THE MESSIAH YESHUA .
We want HIM to know us and say, ” Well done good and faithful servant”, not, “Get away from me you workers of iniquity, I do not know you (Luke 19:17; Matthew 25:23; Matthew 7:23; Luke 13:27).”
“CALLED” OUT WOMAN TO LIVE BY FAITH IN YESHUA, ARE YOU READY TO BE THE BRIDE?
We are “One in the SPIRIT” with MASHIACH/MESSIAH as symbolized by the marriage of a man and woman. We are making ourselves ready . “It was given to her to be clothed in fine linen, pure and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of those who belong to YAH (Revelation 21). *(Kallat or Kallat Torah is Hebrew for Bride of the Torah/Word)YESHUA’s Bride is HIS Body of Believers, not someone belonging to a synagogue, church, congregation/kehilah, but the person that has made YESHUA, MASTER over their lives and has totally surrendered and are HIS SPIRIT (Born Again) (John 14, 15, 16; John 3; Romans 8).
*According to ancient Jewish wedding tradition, the marriage supper was about seven days after the marriage. This is when the bridegroom (CHATAN TORAH: BRIDEGROOM [YESHUA/JESUS] OF THE TORAH/WORD. **Chatan comes from the Hebrew verb to tie, connect to covenant) presents his wife to the gathered guests. Jastrow’s Talmudical Dictionary: Assyrian word chatanu which means to protect (function of bridegrooms in ancient societies.) The chatan becomes tied, connected and covenant to his family.
***Jeremiah lamented, “Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then is there no healing for the wound of the Daughter of my People (Jeremiah 8:22)? ‘The ‘Daughter,’ Jeremiah speaks of is a Bride of God, to whom the balm was sacred, although as Jeremiah would have it, only YEHOVAH GOD, HIMSELF, and not the Balm, is the source of healing, and the Bride could expect no healing unless first She turned toward Her husband, YEHOVAH. Isaiah as well as Jeremiah and other prophets pretty much all assume the collective community of Israel is this ‘Bride’; that Zion is in truth Mother Zion; that Wisdom is a beautiful maiden who sets banquets for the faithful; & thus to this day the Sabbath celebrates the Shabbat Bride, to whom the closing Proverbs to “the Perfect Woman” are read weekly at Sabbath family feasts. During this time God & His Bride are separated, & the world suffers in consequence. The Rose ( of Sharon) & the Lily are twin sisters who rule seven mountains (2 Esdra 2:19) & are the source of all joy. YESHUA is the source of all joy. ***’Sharon’ means “Fruitful,” a word that Torah associates with good pasturage for sheep. When Isaiah says, “Sharon shall be a fold for sheep,” [Isa 65:10]. We are sheep of YESHUA’s pasture HIS pasture is good and fruitful. When we dwell/abide in the House of YAH forever, we are abiding in Sharon. Rose of Sharon was not so much a specific earthly flower as it was a symbol of the Perfect Bride, and the Perfect Bride symbolized the fruitfulness and beauty of the Earth when She was at peace and in harmony with God. ****Carmel means “Orchard,” from kar meaning either pasturage or a lamb, extending the sheepfold enclosure imagery, but also puns with karmil meaning bright crimson or carmine, hence suggestive of wine.
YESHUA, the BRIDGEGROOM, the LAMB WHO takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29). The ONE WHO said that HIS Blood is the Blood of the New Covenant poured out for the world for the forgiveness of sins (Matthew 26:28; Luke 22:20). HE is the BRIDEGROOM/CHATAN , tied to, connected with and covenant with those who and those who will believe on and receive HIM into their hearts. We should check ourselves to see what’s in our hearts, there might be somethings in our hearts that would cause us to not be ready when MESSIAH comes back for us Saints.
“And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares (LUKE 21:34).”
YESHUA the MESSIAH will choose who is coming to the Wedding Feast. Are you dressed appropriately, with the garment of Salvation and Righteous or some other garment? Look back at the previous scripture and meditate on it and ask yourself, “Will you be chosen?”
“The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. ‘So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find. So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, the bad as well as the good, and the wedding hall was filled with guests. But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes. He asked, How did you get in here without wedding clothes, friend? The man was speechless. Then the king told the attendants, Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. ‘For many are invited, but few are chosen’ (Matthew 22:9-14).”
