Know Thyself and Thy God in These Perilous Times

You don't have to be a scholar to know that violence has escalated throughout the land. The love of many has waxed cold. We're in perilous times. It's time for serious deliberation on the part of each individual who is unsure.


"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blaspemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-conrol, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of Yah, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!" --II Timothy 3:1-5

There's no shortage of 'teachers'. Like churches, you can find one on every corner --each one saying something different about who the 'true' people of God are and how to get to the One True and Living God.

Society is inundated with end-time chatter and end-time prophets.

When it comes to knowing who you are, who your Creator is, and knowing what time we're living in, you are blind, deaf and dumb. You can neither see, hear or speak to your own condition.

Why is that? Have you ever asked yourself that question? Every other culture or ethnicity around you behaves as though they're better than you. -and you behave as though it's true. What happened?

Why are you singled out for persecution? Do you ever question your condition? Or do you just accept it as your lot in life?



You've been told to 'run to God' and seek refuge. But you don't know which one. There so many street-corner gods available, finding the true path to redemption seems impossible. It's cluttered with every flavor. Satan has provided something for everyone.

The trickery lies in Satan's attempt to lead you astray by giving you so many religious paths to Yahushua Ha Mashiach.

He (Satan) knows that you're prone to choosing the broader path of least resistance. -rather than the narrower one of faith, holiness, and discipline. So what do you do?

With Satan and his imps manipulating people and events, you simply cannot risk following after a man's teaching or theory. To find the true path of redemption, you must 'seek' for yourself -and seek honestly and diligently. 

Or you can settle for the watered-down, demonically-influenced Sunday-morning 'hooping and hollering' abomination that you're accustomed to.

"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him to knocks it will be opened." --Matthew 7:7-8

Be blameless. 

Do your research. Study to show yourself approved (knowledgeable and wise). It's okay to read more than the KJV (King James Version).

When you go to school do you have only one book to study from? So why limit yourself to one book when studying to find your way back to the Creator of all life in the universe?

Finding salvation is something each individual must do for his or herself. Why follow someone to destruction when you can ask, seek and knock for yourself?

We're encouraged to 'work out our own salvation with fear and trembling'. --Philippians 2:12

When you ask YAH to help you find the way, He will. When you diligently seek Him with all your heart, He will let you find Him. When you knock on the door of salvation, He will open the door for you.

Have faith and do it. Regardless of how many fake options are out there, I'm here to tell you there is no other choice but to 'work out your own salvation'. -Seek for the true path.

Close your ears to talk that tries to sort out what so-called black man is or isn't included with the chosen. The one laying these ground rules may not be of the chosen tribe themselves.

Slavery did a number on all our black fathers who were brought here and subjugated. Our DNA is not pure today. The fallen have mixed their blood with the daughters of men. As we are children of the oppressed this 'mixing' was beyond our control.

But YAH is merciful. And He has provided a way back to Himself for us.

The safest place for the so-called black family in this Babylonian system is to ask, seek and knock. Read, study and research. Adjust your life accordingly. Rest in the faith and hope that your striving will not be in vain. --if you endure to the end.

It's a narrow path, not many people will find it suitable to their lusts.

Shalom
