Shabbat Shalom Loved One!   

You are much loved! 

He is watching over His word to perform it; not our additions and subtractions such as adding our own pagan feast dates (Moedim- His appointed times with us), or removing His commanded Feasts from our worship. What we speak must line up with His word that is forever settled in Heaven.
Much is on my mind concerning who we are and who among us will determine to become as He is. We are all aware that the seasons of these end-times seem to be accelerating. The question we should all address is; WHAT ARE WE DOING TO BECOME WHO WE WERE MADE TO BE? That is, we all have a calling- but are we making ourselves ready to be His Bride without---WITHOUT- spot or blemish?
I am reading a book just now by Anna Mendez Ferrell- whom I have great respect for as I have met her- that addresses INIQUITIES. Most of us know that iniquities are roots of sin behavior and have to do with generational curses passed down for many generations. These are not judgments for sin, but the sin of our own, and those of our bloodlines upward open avenues or maybe better called demonic doors of attack to place the same sin on us—and most of us have been at least partially blocked from really overcoming and attaining the intimacy of KNOWING HIM as He wants us to. A look at King David’s life and the Psalms is eye opening, as he recognizes his iniquities and determines and calls out for help. 
Psalms_38:4 For my iniquities have gone over my head; like a heavy burden they are too heavy for me.
Psalms_40:12  For innumerable evils have surrounded me; my iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of my head; Therefore my heart fails me.
Psalms_51:9 Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities.
Psalms_64:6 They devise iniquities: "We have perfected a shrewd scheme." both the inward thought and the heart of man are deep.
Psalms_65:3 Iniquities prevail against me; as for our transgressions, you will provide atonement for them.
Psalms_79:8 Oh, do not remember former iniquities against us! Let your tender mercies come speedily to meet us, for we have been brought very low.
Psalms_90:8 You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your countenance.
Psalms_103:3 Who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases,
Psalms_103:10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us according to our iniquities.
Psalms_107:17 Fools, because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, were afflicted.
So generational curses of iniquities is likely the very thing blocking many of us from moving forward—it seems sometimes we just have no more hunger or thirst for Him- we are blocked somehow of desire to move deeper into Him. The author of the book shared that she always had a difficult time and was continually losing her money (Even her inheritance) that she knew was rightfully hers. So, she made a very wise move that we each should consider also. She asked the Father to reveal why this continued to happen in her life and why she could not overcome. Yes – she sought Him with ALL her heart and desire!
She was given a dream that night and saw an event happen in her grandfather’s life. He was a businessman and cheated his partner out wrongfully and she heard the partner tell him- “You and your descendants will be cursed for ever for this!” So she acknowledged her own shortcomings in repentance and placed the blood of the Lamb between her grandfather’s sin and her bloodline downward! She shares that it seemed the windows of heaven began to pour on her and never again did she experience lack from that day forward! I encourage you to do likewise- take a paper and look at the results of sin in your lineage. Divorces, lack, sickness, disease, hate, bitterness, fornication, adultery, etc. and deal with these as some have likely been attached to our lives also. We must ask and SPECIFICALLY hear and address these iniquities that we may make ourselves ready! Our loving heavenly Father will give us strategies- if we will but ask and receive! He stands at the door and knocks on our hearts- will we listen and allow Him to help us?
Matthew 6:14 “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father shall also forgive you. Matthew 6:15 “But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither shall your Father forgive your trespasses. Matthew 6:16 “And when you fast, (NOT IF) do not be sad-faced like the hypocrites. For they disfigure their faces so that they appear to be fasting to men. Truly, I say to you, they have their reward. Matthew 6:17 “But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, Matthew 6:18 so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place. And your Father who sees in secret shall reward you openly. Matthew 6:19  “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, Matthew 6:20  but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. Matthew 6:21 “For where your treasure is, there your heart shall be also. Matthew 6:22 “The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, all your body shall be enlightened. Matthew 6:23But if your eye is evil, 1 all your body shall be darkened. If, then, the light that is within you is darkness, how great is that darkness! Footnote: 1 this is a Heḇrew idiom – a good eye means to be generous, while an evil eye means to be stingy. Matthew 6:24 “No one is able to serve two masters, for either he shall hate the one and love the other, or else he shall cleave to the one and despise the other. You are not able to serve Elohim and mammon.1 Footnote: 1 Personification of wealth. Matthew 6:25 “Because of this I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you shall eat or drink, or about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than the food and the body more than the clothing? Matthew 6:26 “Look at the birds of the heaven, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into storehouses, yet your heavenly Father does feed them. Are you not worth more than they? Matthew 6:27 “And which of you by worrying is able to add one cubit to his life’s span? Matthew 6:28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Note well the lilies of the field, how they grow. They neither toil nor spin, Matthew 6:29 and I say to you that even Shelomoh in all his esteem was not dressed like one of these. Matthew 6:30  “But if Elohim so clothes the grass of the field, which exists today, and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more you, O you of little belief? Matthew 6:31 “Do not worry then, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ Matthew 6:32 “For all these the gentiles seek for. And your heavenly Father knows that you need all these. Matthew 6:33 But seek first the reign of Elohim, and His righteousness, and all these matters shall be added to you. Matthew 6:34 “Do not, then, worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow shall have its own worries. Each day has enough evil of itself.
Loved Ones- Many have been in a “need to fast” time, and as usual there is always a very good reason we are being urged by the Ruach HaKodesh to fast and pray. Those of us who have been around a while realize—trouble’s brewing just ahead—and if we ignore His urging to fast and pray- we are NOT WISE!

So consider what the benefits are of fasting and praying. Remember with me all offerings are only acceptable when they cost us something- afflicting our souls do this.
The awesome truth of the spiritual benefit of prayer and fasting: It rids us of our unbelief! 
(I will try and explain fully with scripture guarantees next week)
Judgment and destruction is how Daniel 9 clearly states how YHWH confirms HIS covenant with His people. Obviously for OBEDIENCE He confirms His covenant with BLESSINGS! It is then a COVENANT OF KINDNESS! However, the rounding up of Americans to FEMA death camps or spraying us with plagues via chemtrails might be His judgment which may have already started. Judgment IS for disobedience as a people. Remember with me among many other rebellious acts we have done- that keeping HIS Sabbath is a SIGN forever between Him and His grafted in people:
(Exodus 31:15) ‘Six days work is to be done; and the seventh day is a Sabbath of rest, set-apart to יהוה. Everyone doing work on the Sabbath day shall certainly be put to death. (Exodus 31:16)  ‘The children of Yisra’ĕl shall guard the Sabbath and observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant. (Exodus 31:17) Between Me and the children of Yisra’ĕl it is a sign forever. In six days יהוה made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.’ ” The CONFIRMATION OF THE COVENANT is of great import as this is what starts the final 42 months before the LAST TRUMP. Currently, I see judgment confirming Messiah’s covenant stated in Daniel 9:27 below as general and vast but could certainly include the Zechariah 5 thermonuclear war. We must decide for ourselves of course. I for one would certainly prefer having an additional time to repent!
REPENTING and asking for forgiveness; note who the covenant is for…BLESSING OR CURSE?
Daniel 9:4 And I prayed to יהוה my Elohim, and made confession, and said, “O יהוה, great and awesome Ěl, guarding the covenant and the kindness to those who love Him, and to those who guard His commands.  Daniel 9:5We have sinned and done crookedness; did wrong and rebelled- to turn aside from your commands and from your right-rulings. Daniel 9:6 “And we have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in Your Name to our sovereigns, our heads, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land. Daniel 9:7 “O יהוה, to You is the righteousness, and to us the shame of face, as it is this day – to the men of Yehuḏah, to the inhabitants of Yerushalayim and all Yisra’ĕl, those near and those far off in all the lands to which you have driven them, because of their trespass which they have trespassed against you. Daniel 9:8 “O Master to us is the shame of face, to our sovereigns, to our heads, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against you. Daniel 9:9 “To יהוה our Elohim are the compassions and forgiveness’s, for we have rebelled against Him. Daniel 9:10 “And we have not obeyed the voice of יהוה our Elohim, to walk in His Torot, which He set before us through His servants the prophets. Daniel 9:11 “And all Yisra’ĕl- we have transgressed Your Torah, and turned aside, so as not to obey your voice. So the curse and the oath written in the Torah of Mosheh the servant of Elohim have been poured out on us, for we have sinned against Him.
He still desires intimacy and that comes from WILLING obedience as that is the only sacrifice that is acceptable to Him! A heart to obey will always receive more instructions whereas a heart in rebellion will be cut off and allowed to stumble until REPENTANCE comes!
Yahshua reminds us: (John 14:20) In that day (Comment: Hebrew idiom for Day of the Lord) you shall know that I am in My Father and you in me, and I in you. (John 14:21)  He who possesses my commands and guards (does) them; it is he who loves me. And he who loves me shall be loved by My Father, and I shall love him and manifest myself to him.” Then we read 1 John: (1 John 2:15) Do not love the world or that which is in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.1 Footnote: 1 James 4:4. (1 John 2:16)  Because all that is in the world – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life – is not of the Father but is of the world. (1 John 2:17)  And the world passes away, and the lust of it, but the one doing the desire of Elohim remains forever.
Loved One- we are manifesting as the sons and daughters of the Creator as we learn to yield and obey. It is called She’mah (HEAR AND OBEY) O’ Israel! May our loving Creator give us the ears to hear Him and the courage to obey Him!
(1 John 3:1)  See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of Elohim! For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. (1 John 3:2)  Beloved ones, now we are children of Elohim. And it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. (1 John 3:3)  And everyone having this expectation in Him cleanses himself, as He is clean. (1 John 3:4)  Everyone doing sin also does lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. (1 John 3:5)  And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. (1 John 3:6)  Everyone staying in Him does not sin. Everyone sinning has neither seen Him nor known Him.1 Footnote: 1 See 2:4 & 3 John v. 11. (1 John 3:7)  Little children, let no one lead you astray. The one doing righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous.1 Footnote: 1See 2:29. (1 John 3:8)  The one doing sin is of the devil, because the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of Elohim was manifested: to destroy the works of the devil.1 Footnote: 1 See Titus 2:14. (1 John 3:9)  Everyone having been born of Elohim does not sin, because His seed stays in him, and he is powerless to sin, because he has been born of Elohim.
“DOING” the Gospel is not only guarding our tongues to agree with YHWH’s words but keeping ourselves pure and undefiled from the world and its systems and culture of whoredoms which contain pagan traditions. Obedience to Torah is FREEDOM!
PURE RELIGION and undefiled is this- take care of widows and orphans and keep ourselves from being polluted (naturally) by the world and its culture! (James 1:21)  Therefore put away all filthiness and overflow of evil, and receive with meekness the implanted Word, 1 which is able to save your lives. Footnote: 1 See Matthew 13:4-23. (James 1:22)  And become doers of the Word, and not hearers only, 1 deceiving yourselves. Footnote: 1 See Matthew 7:24-27, Luke 6:46-49, Luke 8:21, Romans 2:13, Hebrews 4:11, Revelation 22:14.  (James 1:23)  If anyone is a hearer of the Word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror, (James 1:24) for he looks at himself, and goes away, and immediately forgets what he was like. (James 1:25)  But he that looked into the perfect Torah, that of freedom, 1 and continues in it, not becoming a hearer that forgets, but a doer of work, this one shall be blessed in his doing of the Torah. Footnote: 1 See 2:12. (James 1:26)  If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is worthless. (James 1:27)  Clean and undefiled religion before the Elohim and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained (Unpolluted) from the world.
Really want to know the will of YHWH for your life? Do we really want to know? Here’s how; offer our bodies as a living sacrifice- that is fast and pray and READ and MEDITATE on His Word- yes Torah, the prophets and the Renewed Covenant!
(Romans 12:1)  I call upon you, therefore, brothers, through the compassion of Elohim, to present your bodies a living offering – set-apart, well-pleasing to Elohim – your reasonable worship. (Romans 12:2)  And do not be conformed to this world (Pollution and defiled), but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, (Meditating on the Word) so that you prove what is that good and well-pleasing and perfect desire of Elohim. (His will)

Blessings or Curses from Obedience or Disobedience- We get to choose!
(Keep in mind it is not legalism to obey YHWH- that’s called obedience and brings forth blessings- it is legalism to obey man’s added rules and traditions- which Yahshua says makes the word of none effect!)

(Deuteronomy 11:26)  ‘See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse: (Deuteronomy 11:27) the blessing, when you obey the commands of יהוה your Elohim which I command you today; (Deuteronomy 11:28) and the curse, if you do not obey the commands of יהוה your Elohim, but turn aside from the way which I command you today, to go after other mighty ones which you have not known. (Deuteronomy 11:29)  ‘And it shall be, when יהוה your Elohim has brought you into the land which you go to possess, that you shall put the blessing on Mount Gerizim and the curse on Mount Ěyḇal. (Deuteronomy 11:30) ‘Are they not beyond the Yardĕn, toward the setting sun, in the land of the Kenaʽanites who dwell in the desert plain opposite Gilgal, beside the terebinth trees of Moreh? (Deuteronomy 11:31)  ‘For you are passing over the Yardĕn to go in to possess the land which יהוה your Elohim is giving you, and you shall possess it and dwell in it, (Deuteronomy 11:32)  and shall guard to do all the laws and right-rulings which I am setting before you today.’ (Deuteronomy 12:1)  “These are the laws and right-rulings which you guard to do in the land which יהוה Elohim of your fathers is giving you to possess, all the days that you live on the soil. (Deuteronomy 12:2)  “Completely destroy all the places where the nations which you are dispossessing served their mighty ones, on the high mountains and on the hills and under every green tree. (Deuteronomy 12:3)  “And you shall break down their altars, and smash their pillars, and burn their Ashĕrim with fire. And you shall cut down the carved images of their mighty ones and shall destroy their name 1 out of that place. Footnote: 1 The names of the gentile deities (mighty ones). (Deuteronomy 12:4)  “Do not do so to יהוה your Elohim, (Deuteronomy 12:5)  but seek the place which יהוה your Elohim chooses, out of all your tribes, to put His Name there, for His Dwelling Place, and there you shall enter. (Deuteronomy 12:6)  “And there you shall take your burnt offerings, and your offerings, and your tithes, and the contributions of your hand, and your vowed offerings, and your voluntary offerings, and the firstlings of your herd and of your flock.(Deuteronomy 12:7)  “And there you shall eat before יהוה your Elohim, and shall rejoice in all that you put your hand to, you and your households, in which יהוה your Elohim has blessed you. (Deuteronomy 12:8)  “Do not do as we are doing here today – each one doing whatever is right in his own eyes 1. Footnote: 1 See Judges 17:6 & 21:25. (Deuteronomy 12:9)  “Because you have not yet entered the rest and the inheritance which יהוה your Elohim is giving you. (Deuteronomy 12:10)  “But you shall pass over the Yardĕn, and shall dwell in the land which יהוה your Elohim is giving you to inherit, and He shall give you rest from all your enemies round about, and you shall dwell in safety. (Deuteronomy 12:11)  “And it shall be that unto the place which יהוה your Elohim chooses to make His Name dwell there, there you are to bring all that I command you: your burnt offerings, and your offerings, and your tithes, and the contributions of your hand, and all your choice offerings which you vow to יהוה. (Deuteronomy 12:12)  “And you shall rejoice before יהוה your Elohim, you and your sons and your daughters, and your male servants and your female servants, and the Lĕwite who is within your gates, since he has no portion nor inheritance with you.
Do not eat blood!
(Deuteronomy 12:13)  “Guard yourself that you do not offer your burnt offerings in every place that you see, (Deuteronomy 12:14) except in the place which יהוה chooses, in one of your tribes, there you are to offer your burnt offerings, and there you are to do all that I command you. (Deuteronomy 12:15)  “Only, whatever your being desires you shall slaughter and eat, according to the blessing of יהוה your Elohim which He has given you, within all your gates. The unclean and the clean do eat of it, of the gazelle and the deer alike. (Deuteronomy 12:16)  “Only, the blood you do not eat, pour it on the earth like water. (Deuteronomy 12:17)  “You are not allowed to eat within your gates the tithe of your grain, or of your new wine, or of your oil, or of the firstlings of your herd or your flock, or of any of your offerings which you vow, or of your voluntary offerings, or of the contribution of your hand. (Deuteronomy 12:18)  “But eat them before יהוה your Elohim, in the place which יהוה your Elohim chooses, you and your son and your daughter, and your male servant and your female servant, and the Lĕwite who is within your gates. And you shall rejoice before יהוה
