Insights from the Father

Insights from the Father

 

1 Corinthians 15:44-47   “ . . . it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.  45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; {45 Gen. 2:7}   the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual.  47 The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven.”

      The Second Adam – Yeshua – was from Heaven ( spiritual ) and took on dust , became flesh ( from the dust of the earth – the flesh of the 1st Adam ) which was cursed in Genesis in the Garden, along with all that came out of that dust, so that ‘man’, which came from the dust of the earth, could be redeemed by the Blood of the One that took on dust ( flesh ) making Him the Perfect Sacrifice.  

 

     He was born, not of the will of man, but came from heaven above ( the will of the Father ),  split the veil of the flesh as the Seed of the woman, and came into this world, taking on dust to redeem the ‘dust’. The requirement for sin in Genesis is death –‘ in the day you eat of this you shall die’. So, an animal was killed ( death ) and Adam and Eve were covered with those skins until the One would come  – Yeshua – the One who is Spirit and, unlike ‘the blood and flesh of bulls and goats’, could and would take on and become flesh to redeem flesh.     ( He was born from the ‘Inside Out’)  

 

     Adam & Eve, in the Garden, were covered  with the skins of animals.  The earthly Tabernacle was covered with skins of animals , which was a prophetic picture of  Yeshua  taking on skin (flesh), to ultimately become the covering for all creation that came from the dust of the earth.

       We being of the ‘natural’ and flesh are born from the ‘outside in’, that is  ‘from the will of man’.  Man  (Adam ) attempted to cover himself in the beginning ( the will of man ) with his own covering or what he thought was sufficient to cover his own sin ( all Israel did what was right in their own eyes ) by covering himself with fig leaves.

 

     Yeshua came and took on the dust of the earth ( flesh ).  A crown of thorns ( which is symbolic of the curse on the ground  Genesis 3:17-19 ), was placed on His head as a sign of His Kingship and Lordship over the curse put on the ground (the dust of the earth), a curse that we and all that were called forth from the earth ( animals, plants, creeping things )  were under. So when that Crown drew Blood as it was placed on His brow , the final declaration was made that He had overcome the curse put upon the ground from which the thorns and thistles would come, an ‘overcoming’ that includes us and all creation, and fulfills the Word of the Lord declared in Genesis that He would come as ‘the Seed of the Woman’ ( Genesis 3:15 ) .

 

      Blood and water are present and necessary for natural birth. The same is true for spiritual birth. Yeshua hung on the cross and the sword pierced His side and blood and water came forth which represents the New Birth, the birthing of His Bride. This same picture was given at Yeshua’s baptism .You have the blood ( the Lamb ) the water and the Spirit ( the Dove), all of which are a portrayal of  ‘Spiritual birth’.  In the beginning in Genesis you have the water, and the Spirit brooding over it, and the seed in the earth which includes us ( for we – Adam –  were formed from the dust of the earth ).  ‘Adam’ can also mean ‘red’ which represents ‘blood’ so, even in the Beginning, we have the water, the Blood & Spirit . ( God breathed into Adam and he became a living soul – water, blood and Spirit )

 

     The will of man in the garden was to choose his own covering (the difference of good and evil ) . Which translated, in simple terms, into ‘fig leaves’.   God’s way was to make atonement ( blood – life is in the blood ) .

      Adam & Eve wore the skins of the animals slain. The Tabernacle in the wilderness was covered by the skin of animals. Both of these are a picture of the time when Yeshua would come in the flesh and take on ‘skin’ and ‘dust’ as covering for His Spiritual body ( 1 Cor 15 ) and was slain, becoming the blood covering for sin.

Aside
This was sent to us from a friend in the Lord. She felt like she needed to share these dreams with us and with all that will listen (Shema). Please pray and seek the Father on what he would have you and your family do concerning these…..Blessings – Rhonda & Jerry
     January 1, 2014 : In my dream I was in a bank and had a check in my hand. The check was in the amount of $14.01. I felt that this money was owed to me and I was going to sign the check. (The check was on someone else’s account. All that was written on the check was the amount it was for) I can’t remember the first name that was on the check but can see me writing the last name — was not used to signing such a long last name so had to “scrunch” it on the signature line. The name was BRANDENBURG. Handed the check to the teller and the teller put it into my account. Dream changed: I was back home and feeling very convicted for doing what I did and how could I get the check taken out of my checking account. dream ended.
 Prayed that Father would give me the interpretation. At first the only thing I felt that I was to do was look up the name Brandenburg on the computer. On the site that I found it said that the name is German and a royal line’s name; “burg” means hill and branden (brandt) means burning. The actual meaning was written out like this: hill or land cleared for agricultural purposes by burning. I thought that was interesting but still did not know what the whole dream meant so kept praying. On January 14, 2014 I was lying in bed and praying for Father to show me what the dream meant. HE so graciously told me: In 2014 HE, Yehovah, will begin to CLEANSE HIS house by fire (burning). So I asked HIM why I was trying to get the check out of my account. The scripture that says “Yeshua asked that the cup could be passed from HIM,” came to mind. I felt that Abba was saying this symbolized we would be asking HIM to not have to go through the fire. Then I asked HIM how are we to pray. I felt that HE said, “Pray that you will be able to stand strong and not deny HIM when the fire comes as it says in Eph 6:10-18 (notice the dream was had on 1-1-’14 the amount of check was $14.01 the interpretation was given on 1-14-’14 Abba wants us to Pay Attention)
     Next dream:  January 15,2014 A woman came to me and asked me if I would make her a dress. She had a very small bag in her hand like a grocery bag with fabric in it. She said the fabric cost $14,000.00 The pieces of the pattern were already cut out of the fabric. I took the pieces out of the bag and was fitting the bodice piece over her bust line. The fabric was pretty and unlike any I had ever seen. It was multi colored predominately turquoise in a swirl pattern. Every where the fabric had been cut there was a selvage or finished edge where it would not ravel. (end of dream.)
When I awakened I was thinking about the dream and began to ask Abba to show me what HE was telling me. I felt that the fact that the fabric cost $14,000.00 meant that in 2014 we are going to have inflation hit in a BIG way. Hyper-inflation. The fact that I saw myself fitting the pattern to her bust line said to me that our food provision would be hit the HARDEST. The fact that the fabric had a selvage or finished edge everywhere it was cut showed me what little we may have will not run out or trickle away. The fact that the pattern was already cut out means that it is a ‘done deal’.
     Next dream: January 17, 2014 In the dream I was outside on our front porch. There had been some wind and the rug from in front of the door was moved so I picked it up to straighten it. I lad it down in front of the door, but it was not straight so I picked it up again and laid it down. It would not straighten out. It was scrunched up in an accordion fold and was only half the length as it should be.   I  heard ” 6 MONTHS.” ( I am not sure what the 6 months means; possibly that we have 6 months ? )
     Another dream: January 16, 2014: saw a sign like a bill board or perhaps the back of someone’s t-shirt. There were 3 lines:  FORGIVENESS
          FROM ONE TO ANOTHER
          THE BATTLE IS WON
(this one needs no interpretation.)
Shalom,

Dreams……

Significance of the Blood Moons

Joel 2:31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the  great and terrible day of the LORD. ( Acts 2:20)

That is a pretty telling statement. It is the foundation for Yeshua’s similar statements in Matthew 24 and other passages. The Word also states that Abba declares the end ‘out of the beginning’ and not the other way around. There are several examples of what have come to be called ‘Tetrads’ in the history of the world and the history of Israel, God’s people.

Prior to 1492, we don’t have a lot of historical information about events that might have coincided with blood moon series. The ones in 1949-50 are after the fact of the reconstitution of Israel which took place in 1948. The blood moon series that took place in 1967-68 are another matter. The first blood moon fell on Passover in April of 1967 preceding the beginning of the 6-day war in May-June of that year. Signs in the heavens preceding an event would seem to be more in line with how our Heavenly Father works – declaring with a sign before an event occurs.

So what does that have to do with the upcoming Blood Moons on Passover and Day 1 of Sukkot in both 2014 and 2015 ? If in fact they take place on those days, they will be extremely significant prophetically. We know that Kerry and the current administration is pushing for a rough draft of some form of a peace agreement on paper on the table between the PA and Israel by April. Passover 2014 is in April. The Prophet Joel tells us one of the many reasons Abba will judge the nations is because they have divided His Land. IF the two series of Blood Moons ( a tetrad ) come to pass on the projected dates, the ‘two’ would be very telling. Joseph told Pharaoh the two dreams were one. The reason for the two ? To confirm that which was declared was established in the heavens. Not ‘if’, but ‘when’.

Where are we on the prophetic timeline ? We can tell you we are in the ‘birthpangs’. Of that there should be not doubt for anyone. What are birthpangs indicative of ? Something is about to be born. What is it ? Could it be the millennial kingdom ? That would make sense, according to the Word ? How long will they last ? No one knows. One thing we do know. According to pattern, they will increase in frequency and intensity until the event takes place. What are the birth pangs ? Read Matthew 24 and Luke 17. They are NOT a slap on the wrist. And regardless of your eschatology and theories concerning the ‘rapture’, the ‘church’ will be present for these ‘birthpang’ events. Are you  ready ? Are you prepared ? Does Yeshua rule your life ? Are you washed in the blood ? Are you in His Word and is His Word in you ? Do you understand the Feasts of the Lord and His Sabbath ? They are the legend on the map of the Last Days. They are the pattern for the Gospel. The same Gospel given to them in the wilderness and the same Gospel given to us on whom the ends of ages falls.
Only one way to the Father and His eternal kingdom , whether you were part of the first exodus or part the second. Shalom to you and yours in these days – Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem. Pray your flight will not be in winter or on the Sabbath. And pray that you will be found worthy to stand before the Son of Man at His coming.
Above all, pray, and seek His Face and understanding of His Word and Ways in these days.

Signs and Patterns

In the passage of Scripture Exodus 18:1 through 19:25, there are two quick observations we would like to make mention of. First, the ‘signs’.  There were signs for the ‘believers’ – the people of Israel –and there were signs for the ‘unbelievers’ – those of the nations.

And the ultimate sign – everything happened just as it was spoken by Abba. He ‘declared the end out of the beginning’ . . . Isa 46:10

The concept of different ‘signs’ for different groups is an original concept founded in the Torah and the Prophets. And the trend continues. In Paul’s first letter to the congregation at Corinth he describes two types of signs – one for the believer and one for the unbeliever. God is consistent. He establishes patterns and then works within them. Mostly for our benefit. We are supposed to pick up on the ‘pattern’ and then, hopefully, know what to look for.

          Secondly, ( no pun ) we speak of a ‘2nd Exodus’. Actually, a 1st and 2nd Deliverance might be more accurate, but even in this we see ‘patterns’.

For instance, in Exodus 19:4 Father God speaks of the ‘eagle’s wings’ by which He brought His people out. Lo and behold, in Revelation 12:14 He speaks of bringing His people out on – you guessed it – on eagle’s wings. Remember what Paul tells us . . . “ Now these things happened to them as examples and our written down for our admonition on whom the end of the ages comes. 1 Corinthinans 10:11

          What other lessons are there for us from the account of the 1st Deliverance ? They might just come in handy during the 2nd Deliverance . . . birth pangs of which have already begun.

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem . . .

Pray your flight will not be in winter or on Sabbath . . .

Pray you will be found worthy to stand before the Son of Man at His coming . . .

Shalom to you and yours –

Can Israel say ‘No’ to the US? Yes, we can!

yeswecan
By Michael Freund, The Jerusalem Post
Reprinted by permission from Moshe Kepinski of Shoreshim Updates, Jerusalem, Israel
January 7, 2014
Believe it or not, there are some things that are more important even than American goodwill. Survival, I dare say, is one of them.
Amid reports that US Secretary of State John Kerry is applying mounting pressure on Israel to make significant concessions to the Palestinians, there is an increasingly common refrain that has seeped into our political dialogue which needs to be exposed for the fallacy that it is.
Israel, we are told by various pundits and politicians, has no choice but to go along with American demands.
After all, our relationship with Washington is our greatest strategic asset and we cannot allow anything to get in its way. Hence, whatever America wants, the Jewish state must more or less accept.
Needless to say, such an approach is not only short-sighted and misguided – it is oblivious to history and perilous to our destiny.
And the sooner we expose it for the misleading oversimplification that it is, the better off we will all be.
To begin with, Israel is not a vassal state, an American overseas territory or a serf that must cower before his feudal overlord.
We are a sovereign independent nation with our own national and security interests, and while we must surely take into account what our friends and allies have to say, we cannot and must not lose sight of our right and obligation to determine our own fate.
And regardless of how short our memories might be, the fact is that on numerous occasions Israel has defied and resisted, flouted and even disregarded American demands when it came to matters that went to the core of our very existence.
Take, for example, the Reagan plan.
On September 1, 1982, US President Ronald Reagan delivered a nationally-televised address in which he called for a “fresh start” in the Middle East peace process. He laid out a series of proposals which included a construction freeze on Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria and a transition period leading to “self-government by the Palestinians of the West Bank and Gaza in association with Jordan.”
Astonishingly, the plan was drawn up in consultation with various Arab leaders, while Israel was kept in the dark until right before Reagan’s speech.
But Jerusalem reacted quickly and with resolve.
On September 2, then-prime minister Menachem Begin interrupted a vacation in Nahariya, returned to Jerusalem and convened a special cabinet meeting, which lasted for three hours.
Afterwards, the government issued a communique that was striking in its audacity. It contained a point-by-point rebuttal of Reagan’s speech, stating that, “The positions conveyed to the Prime Minister of Israel on behalf of the President of the United States consist of partial quotations from the Camp David Agreement or are nowhere mentioned in the agreement or contradict it entirely.”
It went on to state that, “the positions of the Government of the United States seriously deviate from the Camp David agreement, contradict it and could create a serious danger to Israel, its security and its future.”
And guess what? The sky did not fall in, the sun still rose the next morning, and Israel and the United States continued to be friends, even if there was tension in the relationship.
Several days later, Begin went even further, sending a personal letter to Reagan which should be required reading for every Israeli diplomat and statesman lacking a backbone.
With a mixture of grace and determination, Begin made clear to the leader of the Free World that as much as he valued the ties between Israel and the US, he would not compromise his core principles or Israel’s national interests.
“Dear Ron,” wrote Begin, “What some call the ‘West Bank,’ Mr.
President, is Judea and Samaria; and this simple historic truth will never change. There are cynics who deride history. They may continue their derision as they wish, but I will stand by the truth,” he said.
“And the truth,” insisted Begin, “is that millennia ago there was a Jewish kingdom of Judea and Samaria where our kings knelt to God, where our prophets brought forth the vision of eternal peace, where we developed a rather rich civilization which we took with us, in our hearts and in our minds, on our long global trek for over 18 centuries; and, with it, we came back home.”
After spelling out his objections to Reagan’s peace plan, Begin concluded with a paragraph as piercing as it was heartfelt. “Mr.
President,” he stated, “you and I chose for the last two years to call our countries ‘friends and allies.’ Such being the case, a friend does not weaken his friend, an ally does not put his ally in jeopardy. This would be the inevitable consequence,” Begin asserted, if the president’s proposals were to become reality.
“I believe they won’t,” the prime minister concluded, before quoting from the prophet Isaiah: “For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest.”
Other Israeli leaders, both before and since, have stood up to American pressure and had the courage of their convictions, just as Begin did. Confident in the justness of Israel’s cause, Begin, Golda, Ben-Gurion and others were willing to buck Washington for the sake of Israel’s future.
So, I ask you, can Israel afford to say “no” to Kerry’s proposals? Of course! Or, to borrow a phrase from President Barack Obama’s 2008 election campaign: “Yes we can!” Sure, there will be consequences, and strains in our bilateral relationship. But Israel has said “no” before and should not be afraid of doing so again. We cannot put our security at risk and forgo parts of our ancestral homeland, simply to win favor with the powers that be in the White House.
Israel must stand firm and reject any further withdrawals or retreats, regardless of what Mr. Kerry has to say. We cannot return to the 1967 borders or allow a hostile Palestinian entity to arise next door.
Believe it or not, there are some things that are more important even than American goodwill.
Survival, I dare say, is one of them.
