A Strong Woman’s Decision To Let Go

Today on Gleaning The Scriptures, we are going to take note of a mother who had a tough decision to make.  She had a young babe destined, it seemed, to die before his time.  This woman: Jochabed, is a great example of what it takes to be a great parent, not just to children but to grown up children. It’s natural for moms to be great moms to their young children! Jochabed was like a ninja mommy: sneaky, clever, decisive, possessed good timing and bless-able.  Be impressed when reading Exodus Ch. 3.

Let’s break this down and then go ahead and read it.  Now-a-days, when someone is put in a rough spot and comes out on top, people say “well played.” In this case Jochebed deserves a “well played,” and I am sure if she were near, she would send the glory and honor to God.  My dear pop once told me that it is not the situation that makes a man, it is what he makes of the situation.

Jochebed lived in Egypt during a time when all male children born were to be murdered (similar to Yeshua’s birth).  Moses’ survival set him apart, as he was the only male his age in the city (much like Yeshua). To be set apart is the root definition of most holy words such as holy, righteous, sanctified, and more.

Jochebed had an impregnable need to see her baby live, as YHVH showed her that her son was “beautiful.”  She sent him down the Nile after 3 months of hiding him.  Moses’ sister (or Jochabed’s daughter) was sent down-river to watch.  The outcome? Jochebed went from needing to see her son die at the hands of her nation’s captors, to the Egyptian royalty (their captors) paying her to nurse her son!  Well played Levite woman, well played!

What can we glean from Jochabed’s actions? We must let go of the things we love most. We sometimes must let go in order to fulfill responsibilities properly. Sometimes, we must let go completely; although, we may receive those very things back, plus some. We must learn to practice Scriptural authority. The world is screaming from all sides to us that the authority should be ours but in the way the world wants and demands. Being set-apart means you don’t listen to the excuse inside your heart or head “Well, everybody else does it this way,” or “The way I handle this relationship is completely normal!” If those are the excuses holding you back from living a set-apart lifestyle unto YHVH, shouldn’t you wonder if you are as set apart as you think you are? Who put the aforementioned kind of excuses in you? Let YHVH have authority over what you do, not the world. Then again, if YHVH is not near to you, it would be apropos to walk in the world’s ways, wouldn’t it? Necessary even.

Leg of Lamb

Did you know there was a time when it was common practice for a shepherd to break a lost sheep’s leg? It may still be practiced, I am not sure.

If a sheep were to wander away from the flock it would be found. Upon it being found, the shepherd would break it’s leg and return with the sheep on his shoulders.  The sheep would heal at the loving side of the sheep herder and it’s wanderings would be over: the sheep would be safe, the rest of the flock would be safe, and the shepherd would be safe too. A happy ending.

The scribes and pharisee’s were in study of The Law of Scripture.  We can see that it most likely seemed to most that they were found and righteouss as their M.O. was to appear that way; however, in the story of the lost sheep and the story of the missing coin, it was the cunning, racalcitrant pharisees that were part of those lost from the flock. They were rebuking their own shepherd while He was trying to bring them to salvation. When they should have been coming to Him to learn, they came with this in their hearts: slander, entrapment, correction.

 <Then drew near unto Him all the publicans and sinners for to hear Him. And the pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, “this Man receives sinners, and eats with them.” And He spake this parable unto them, saying, “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? And when he hath found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying unto them, “Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.” I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repents, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.”>

A-voiding Sin

Good day to you, everyone. Today should be beautiful and filled with experiences that will sanctify (to make ready, to tool up, to set apart) us for Yeshua’s work.  Also, you see what I did with the title their? A “voiding” sin? I hope that gives you a chuckle.


Yeshua, let us be workers of righteousness and ambassadors of your light, grace, and truth.  Help us to be bold in the face of lies, gently administering truth to those ready to let pride subside that their beliefs of You may change and grow towards what Your Word teaches us about who You are.  We want to know more about You Lord Yeshua and we are ready to be soft hearted in Scripture and hard hearted against the lies the world teaches us about You.  The more truth we know about You, the better sanctified we are, so as to properly worship You and do Your work.  We come to You as little children accepting truths that men aren’t meant to understand. We know, Father, that sin separates us from You, so help us unlearn the lie that sin is a necessity for life. We know that Your word is contrary to that teaching. Help us to know that logically and in practice, not just intellectually. Halleluia


In the Tenach, or the Writings before The Gospel of Matthew, there were ceremonies for dealing with sin (to be fair, these ceremonies were still being done from the Gospel of Matthew forward as well).  God commanded Moses who commanded the Levitical priests in ways of sacrifice.  If I were a traveling sheep herder I would have my family and my belongings. . . that’s about it.  My belongings would not consist of much.  Sacrificing the best of my flock would be a big deal. They did not have I-phones and TV’s and entertainment as we know it.  If we had to give up our favorite thing because of a single sin or a couple of sins, that small repercussion alone would put a major hindrance in the way of sin for us. That sacrificing the unblemished and healthy of the flock was expected in that culture: try telling them you have to sin! They wouldn’t have it.

If I were to have to give up my mode of transportation, my phone, or the earnings from my best day that month because of a sin, then I would be seeing sin from miles away and steering clear of it completely. It is hard to stop a bad thing without the appropriate repercussions. and it is hard for a bad thing to gain traction when the appropriate repercussions are in place.

Today, when a man sins, he holds onto the shame and the guilt that are fruits of sin.  He then lives with that shame and guilt.  Those things enslave him.  Look at the way a thief acts when people start talking about steeling.  Look at the way a debtor who can’t pay acts when credit is brought up.  If a man has cheated on his spouse, look at the way he feels when cheating is brought up.  Heck, look at the way anybody who still has a conscience feels when anything sexual is brought up as if it is a nonchalant thing. Guilt and shame makes humans feel filthy. They make men unstable like an addict when he is high.

If a man is continuing to harbor guilt and shame, and he says with his mouth that he believes in Yeshua, he is on the right track if he thinks he means it. His belief has not saved him yet, though. Let me explain. Yeshua took the shame and guilt, the sin itself even, onto Himself, purchasing us with His life.  Believing is a pregnant word and means much more than acknowledging the existence of.  History accounts of Yeshua’s life, and His death on a cross: the human populous agrees on that as historical fact whether they believe on Yeshua or not.  Believing on Yeshua entails trusting that sins are, in reality, sent to Him on the cross as an inherent truth.  It does not make sense and is not meant to be understood right away. It sounds like magic. It is not magic it is miracle. 

We are built to want to say in our hearts “No way, that is fairy tale stuff,” while we tell people, and ourselves that we believe. This inner, recalcitrant, surreptitious battle is occurring because men truly think they believe but only in their minds. Their darkened hearts do not believe yet, and may never end up believing. Who can know the heart? We are to be as little children: Our Father In Heaven tells us that is what happens?  “Okay, I trust you Father.”

The sacrificial system was built to artistically sing of exactly the character of the sacrifice. Sometimes art is brutal. Sometimes art is honest. Man does not fully understand the depth of the amazing work He did for His beloved that day. It is so much deeper than most know. It literally is the hinge that holds all of existence to it’s ability to exist and the work’s main and first purpose is to separate His beloved from their sins as soon as possible. That is His will for His loved ones.

Guilt and shame will stream to Yeshua: Isaiah 2:2 <And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of YHVH’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.> This verse accurately describes many things, as much of Scripture does. It accurately describes the nature of this writing’s subject.

There is much to look forward to through the fight: guilt and shame are no longer controlling relationships, the people you befriend, the places you go, the things you do, the respect or disrespect you dish out. In short, death will no longer be your handler. There is a reason that it says that If we believe on Him we are saved.  <For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.> All actions, thoughts, words, fall properly into place. The righteouss become the handlers of death as is their right.  Believing on Yeshua saves, right here, right now, not just in the future. If saving occurs today, it certainly will occur in the Kingdom we strive for. He is a root that will always be watered with everlasting life.  Why?  Because that is the way things have been made. Be strong and courageous. Very courageous.

Please pray that we all are humble in our actions thoughts and words so that Yeshua may continue to live within us comfortably.

Spiritual Safety

Prayer: Lord Yeshua, we hand our hearts and minds to You.  We ask that you humble us and soften our hearts in order that we may grow closer to the garden that is Your Word, Your Truth, Your Life, Your Love, an abundance of all these that will strengthen our shield of faith.

Post: In John chapter three we learn a lot. Yeshua had been working mentally and spiritually very hard in order to grab the attention of the pharisees.

  • <“Have you never read what David did when he and his companions were hungry? He entered The House of God, and taking the consecrated bread, he ate what is lawful only for priests to eat. And he also gave some to his companions.” Then Yeshua said to them, “The Son Of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.”>

He had that attention and one of them, Nicodemus, was softened and ready for The Master to teach him (or maybe he was sent as a spy). When Nicodemus came to Yeshua it was by night, in secret seemingly, so he probably was coming on his own accord in order to gain spiritual wisdom where his conscience was pricked and the pure, unadulterated passions that brought him to serve as a pharisee to begin with were re-awakened. The message that so perfectly sums up the gospel was given to Nicodemus. An immense amount of knowledge was passed from Yeshua to Nicodemus that night.

What an incredible honor for Nicodemus to have received such knowledge from the Son Of God. The love of Messiah continued to abound in Nicodemus’s life: before Yeshua left for Galilee, John went into Judea teaching all the people the same message. That may seem tangential, but if John went into Judea teaching the same message, that means it would have been the buzz. Imagine the supporting evidence the in-dwelling of The Spirit within those communities of believers would have lent to Nicodemus in marketplace conversations. There would have been no getting away from it.

Now, a note about this eternal life.

  • <For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.>

What Yeshua said to Nicodemus was in the past tense, “For God so loved the world”. This, in the past tense, although it was what He was currently living out. The question here is: how is that logical? Yeshua was living out what had already happened. He was living it out for our sake: <He is The Lamb who was slain before the foundation of the world.> Believers are not living to heap up merit for ourselves, in order that we have this everlasting life after death only, but that we may have it presently and in abundance. Yeshua came to give us life, and to give us life more abundantly, as it says in John. As we believe, or behave faithfully, our old man who is living a dowie existence that can hardly be called life dies and, we are risen with Messiah.

We shed the partial truths the world teaches us about life.  These are the laws of death that unbelievers live within.  Believers can live true life above the laws of sin and death.  We live in The Son, The Prince of Peace, The Son of God,  The Bridge that brings us from living death to, true life away from God’s wrath: the way Nicodemus did, even though he was surrounded by the laws of sin and death, he began to live life in freedom.

The Spirit’s Dwelling In A Man Produces _______________

If you are reading this, please take a moment to dedicate yourself to an exercise today that you will be doing with several others all around the world! You are being asked to do something, maybe bigger than you realize. I am asking you to sacrifice a thing you were planning for today, whether by yourself or with your kids and/or friends. Instead of what was in your schedule, take the time to purposefully plan a time to go out into the world and do something randomly good for somebody. Something out of character for you. You are being asked to change the course of history, by sacrificing something you would have done today for yourself, replacing it with just this: ask God to use you, today, to answer the question, or fill in the blank from the title. If you decide to take up the challenge, the grace of God be with you and bless you and your family.

Do justice and walk humbly before your God. This is the recipe for living in the power of Elohim for The Savior bestows grace on the humble, but the proud He resists. How interesting: the act of being proud is resisting Godly correction, and in return resistance is what pride receives from Him. How just and right and true and bold The Creator’s love is.

Patience vs. Not Doing

  • <But they who wait for YHVH shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.>
  • <I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of YHVH in the land of the living! Wait for YHVH; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for YHVH!>
  • <Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of YHVH. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains. You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of YHVH is at hand. >
  • <Therefore YHVH waits to be gracious to you, and therefore He exalts Himself to show mercy to you. For YHVH is a God of justice; blessed are all those who wait for Him.>

That last one packs some love doesn’t it?  We are waiting on a God who reveals His nature to us, His goodness to us, His kindness, His ability to confound the flesh, and He is far beyond the understanding of man, even though He quietly lives just inside and all around.  He is waiting to bring His children home to Him! He is waiting to be gracious to us? Really? What is He waiting for?  That is a different thought, eh?  His mercy is extended, most all are too familiar with that, but His grace? How many of His people know His grace beyond the misguided idea that grace is just another word for mercy? How many of His people is He waiting to be gracious to, and if He is waiting to be gracious, what good part are they basking in while graciousness is not there? What can a man do that would cause YHVH to be gracious towards Him? Do not be misguided, YHVH is actively being gracious, right now, towards many of His people.

His children should cast a constant indemnified eye on their own actions, the way a mother watches her children. This, in order that God’s grace can find a home in them.  Doing the things that are right and true, through experience and faith in the word, that will bring them closer to Him.  We believers naturally want to fellowship, pray, and act rightly in His eyes.

Note the instructions are “doing” instructions, and not “do not do” instructions. If you are waiting on YHVH, dont be in neutral, coming from reverse. Be in first gear, at the very least. Instead of trying to not do, actively do what is just. One who is moving forward on purpose has a much lesser chance at being made to go backwards as one who is in neutral (not doing mentality). Wait on YHVH, even when times become hard while you are doing a new good thing. Keep up the good work, and wait as a farmer who waits for the former and latter rains.

<But they who wait for YHVH shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.> Do not faint, saints, because the enemy will while you are on what you might believe is 7 breaths past your last.

Gold, Silver, Precious Gems: A Wise Investment

<For where your treasure is there your heart will be also.> Scripture’s wisdom in this can be found in Matthew 6 verse 21, for those who have their thinking caps on. Preceding that verse, it tells us that it would be a good idea to <store up for yourselves treasures in heaven where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.>

How can a man exercise the faith that God leads him through in his life? Right now, man having treasure is in the idea of living somewhere that their passions and dreams can be lived out. What are The Savior’s plans for man though? Some treasure the idea of living somewhere that they can serve Messiah through producing music, for some it is healing others, for still some more, it is mountain biking, surfing or something else exciting. Were those desires placed in the man by God, though? Do men seriously consider sacrificing their deepest desires to serve God? Do men place their heart in the hands of Elohim (God)? Man’s heart was built to function properly in sacrifice. The heart ought to be in heaven where it is receiving eternal gladness and gifts of The Spirit. A well-spring of The Savior’s true, lasting, unadulterated gifts can be poured out all around a man in order to bring others of faith to a place of constant movement for The Father’s name’s sake.

Father, I beg You, please allow Your children to hope for Your heavenly kingdom and have faith in what The Bible has to teach about the future of the world, the nature of how evil treasures work on a man’s heart, in contrast to the way Your truth flows through a just person, and the treasure that is stored up in that manifold process; How wonderful The Kingdom Of Heaven will be because, not in spite, of their presence in Your Kingdom. Please, Father, open the eyes of my readers and show them why a continual investing in The Kingdom, beyond the first few difficult steps of salvation, is of eternal importance.

“I will make your pinnacles of rubies, your gates of crystal, And all your walls of precious stone; moreover,

The twelve gates, twelve pearls: each individual gate, one pearl. And the street of the city, pure gold, like transparent glass”

Was Paul In Chains?

<It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart and, whether I am in chains or defending and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God’s grace with me.>

Above is the 7th verse in Philippians. It seems Paul was actively carrying His character in a way that may have challenged him to be surreptitious about his intentions. Like Abraham, Paul skillfully showed that He was able to be both honest and wise at the same time about his intentions.

Paul was imprisoned during the time he wrote that verse, most likely roughly 60 A.D. The Romans were still very much in control of their world and the Hebrews had no way out except through the freedom presented to them in Messiah, or selling out their family to the Romans. The circumstances of Paul’s imprisonment (which were most likely nothing more than a comfortable house arrest) were quite interesting: he was arrested by the Romans during a successful attempt the Romans executed to thwart the efforts of the Hebrews to kill Paul. He had been arrested for some time at the writing of this verse, and had the whole guard under the impression that he was there for the sake of Messiah. I am certain some understood he was there for Messiah in word and, to others, they had come to understand the reality of what those words really meant. Paul was placing YHVH’s salvation before those Romans who saved him from his own family of Hebrews when they tried to kill him during a worship service.

We understand that words have great significance as it tells us that <the power of the tongue sets on fire the course of nature.> Paul certainly used this power while “in chains” and we must see that Paul’s request for all of them to share in the grace God was imparting is huge. Do not misunderstand: grace points to power: God’s power.

Paul was in a situation where it would have been very easy for the evil one to slip in, attempting to unfurl all kinds of headway that The Lord and Savior had made in the life of Paul. Self pity and doubt alone could have been more than enough to turn Paul into a selfish man. He however, through the power of Messiah, stayed his course and loved the family of Messiah in a way that still touches precious saints today. Paul was teleios (greek): mature, bearing fruit.

I would like to ask a question and make a cross reference at the same time.  The question is: who is Agur from Proverbs 30?  The cross reference is that of fire.

“There are three things that are never satisfied,  four that never say, ‘Enough!’:

  • the grave
  • the barren womb,
  • land, which is never satisfied with water,
  • and fire, which never says, ‘Enough!’

     Fire is set apart in this list. It seems carnally that these things are tangential; However, they are listed together in Scripture, so the truth is that they are related, and if they truly are tangential, it does not negate the fact that they are indeed related in a way that can be edifying. Three of the things are never satisfied and all four never say enough. Fire stands alone, in that it only never says enough.

What exactly does it mean to “set on fire the course of nature”? Was Paul a good example of how to set on fire the course of nature in a way that honors YHVH? If a man begins or continues to set on fire the course of nature in the way that YHVH desires, will he find persecutions? Does longsuffering produce steadfastness? Does steadfastness produce character? Does character produce hope? let’s prayerfully consider these things whilst selflessly allowing the fruits of Messiah’s spiritual labor in us to benefit Messiah’s work in other’s lives.

Let’s consider the huge sacrifices Paul made to set on fire the course of nature and touch people with His love, and contrast that with a question: Did Paul give, without expecting anything in return? Was Paul a selfless giver, sacrificing from a willing heart? Did Paul try to exercise authority over nature and over those he touched? Are you using the power in you, given by Your Creator to support Your Creator’s work? Are you relying on mercy for your unchecked recalcitrant rebellion, or your faith when it comes to your relationship with God. God will be who He will be, that is a clue as to our role in the relationship. Do as Paul did and fill up within yourself where the cross of Messiah is lacking and walk boldly in the truth of your salvation. There is no salvation without sacrifice. Do good work saints. Love will abound one day, so invest there. Halleluia

Is The Pearl of Great Price Worth It’s Cost

<Again,The Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls.  When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it> can be found in the latter part of Matthew 13.  Ask for The Holy Spirit to both guard and give wisdom and guidance through this study for you.

The Savior was telling His disciples, just a few verses previous, how the kingdom of heaven is demonstrable however few will see or hear it, when it is all around them, quietly whispering to them from within their being. How near, yet how far it truly is from man.

What can be deduced of this parable from the characteristics of a pearl?

  • pearls are made in an oyster (an unclean food)
  • they start off as a grain of sand
  • the sand is an irritant to the oyster
  • they are a treasure

Helper, with this knowledge help Your disciples to connect how the kingdom of Elohim is likened unto a pearl that a merchant found, then selling all he owned, received it. Praise Yeshua, halleluia, Amen.

Again, the disciples were told they would become fishers of men.  We use this metaphor all the time in our lives.  When men are dating they show their partner how great they are for a time.  After men become emotionally involved with a mate and strings are attached, men begin to let their not so attractive side show. The world has hooks: the world is full of hooks in all shapes and sizes, colors and materials, forged in a variety of ways. Beware of the world’s hooks. You cannot win an oyster with a hook.

The disciples rarely if ever used hooks when they were fishing.  They cast nets, also.  Metaphorically, we see that they did not stand in front of crowds and tell them all the great things of The Kingdom while leaving out the parts about what it takes to get there: persecution and longsuffering, change, and a sacrificing of your desires, every morning and every evening. In fact, as a whole, The Word leads with the sufferings when presenting itself: the reason most will not find it. It does tend wear on His beloved though, miraculously. Elohim is not like man that He should lie. The just cast The Creator’s nets onto all creation. The reason that a few might be saved from the entropical kingdom of man is that it is sensible to invest this life for the one to come, no matter how quiet the call is. He is Elohim.

The just may hide the truth that is ever on their tongue while the wicked learn the ways of deceit.

The Unnecessary Extra

Warning: this post talks about private parts.

What do we know about circumcision?  We know that we can have a circumcision of the penis and of the heart.  Let’s look at the circumcision of the penis since it is a physical thing that YHVH has ordered after the spiritual thing He calls “circumcision of the heart.” We can easily see the properties of man’s circumcision, so let’s explore that, in order to figure out a spiritual thing: in order to know and understand circumcision of the heart.

<Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing. Keeping God’s commands is what counts.>

I find this Scripture very interesting as Paul is saying “keeping God’s commands is what counts”, and circumcision falls under the category of “God’s commands.” Here, contextually, you’ll find that Paul was making a point: It is not your job to lord over people using the commands, well, at least not all of them. I say not all of them because in some circumstances it is appropriate to “do” something about it, but not in all circumstances.The purpose of the commands is not for service to man’s adulterated need to have authority over people, is the point of Paul’s argument against the Jews as the Gentiles are finding their footing on the path towards a life lived in abundance. Recalcitrant Jews made Paul’s job, and the Gentiles who were being ministered to by Paul, more difficult than it had to be. Yet, Gentiles are warned not be haughty when seeing the natural branches being cut off, for YHVH is able to graft them back in again. The learning process is sometimes very painful for all involved.

<For in Messiah Yeshua neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.>

<Not even those who are circumcised keep the law, yet they want you to be circumcised that they may boast about your circumcision in the flesh.>

<No, a person is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is circumcision of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the written code. Such a person’s praise is not from other people, but from God.>

<The Lord your God will circumcise your hearts and the hearts of your descendants, so that you may love Him with all your heart and with all your soul, and live.>


Circumcision of the penis:

  • takes extra skin away from penis
  • allows the penis to be made cleaner member
  • thus allowing it to function better
  • a dirty penis gets in the way of living as it needs constant care, when if it were circumcised, the issue would be moot.

Uncircumcised penis:

  • more play in member so that it may be better for sex as some claim

Circumcision of the heart: applying what we know about what the heart represents in life and what we know about how a physical circumcision works let us reason.

The heart is the place where

  • emotions are stored
  • desires that guide life are stored
  • physically, it pumps life throughout the whole body

Using logic, we can surmise that The Creator is telling us that we are born not only with extra… down there, but also with extra in a spiritual way. What can that extra spiritual stuff do to get in the way? Why is it there? Who put it there? How might that extra be used to control people and guide them away from the love of The Savior? Is it true that Our Savior’s character includes holding men responsible for decisions (decisions that stemmed from desires or emotions in the heart) made by allowing unjust decisions to drive men to a darkened heart with futile thoughts, while making just decisions further circumcises the heart of the upright, ensuring His loved ones handle the light that is His light with skill and grace? Is that love, even though it does not feel good or comfortable from time to time?

Scripture teaches that when a man makes an unjust decision ( a decision the stemmed from the desires and beliefs residing in his darkened heart), he is without excuse as the convictions to make the right choice, however arduous the right choice was presented to him as, and the understanding of The Creator’s light and truth were made known to the man. He willingly chose to do evil, knowing it was unjust. Therefore, it is just for The Father to act in love for the good of all whose faith is shown by the works they choose to put their hand to. In fact, God would be liar if he did not judge man’s actions based on truth. This knowledge can be found in the second part of Romans Chapter 1 where it describes the manifold darkness that overcomes the poor people who chose not to walk in faith. May YHVH strengthen them, when those ancient doors are opened in them again.
