KEEPING CHRIST'S COMMANDMENTS TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT AND BE FOUND WORTHY


PLEASE NOTE: This article is the answer to my 10-8-2017 Prayer Request post on Facebook where I was seeking to know why God had placed a spirit of heaviness and sorrow on me in the middle of the Feast of Tabernacles, which is about expressing our overwhelming joy in the knowledge of our Messiah's love for us, and the gift of His salvation. ~ Helena Lehman
When I first became a born again believer in 1987 at the age of 30, the first thing Yahshua did after I felt my initial joy in knowing Him was to lay a spirit of heaviness and sadness over me that lasted for weeks, and that I came to understand as Christ's sorrow over all the people in the world today that have rejected Him, and do not know Him by His Spirit because they are not born again. This tragedy provoked the sorrow in me, and over time, its memory motivated me to really want to reach out to the lost, and lead them to a saving knowledge of Yahshua Ha Mashiach, or Jesus the Christ.

This same sort of sorrow overtook me again on October 8th, 2017, which I now know was no accident, for the date is significant. This is because "Octo" actually means "Eighth", as October was the Eighth month on the old Roman Calendar, which began the year with the Spring Equinox in March. It was also the eighth day of the month, and the "17" in 2017 adds up to 8, making the date 8-8-17, and a symbolic 888, which is the number of the Name of "Jesus" in Greek. Incidentally, my home phone number ends with the number sequence 888 also, which I really find appealing.

Getting back to the point of my story, I wanted to know why I was feeling this sorrow because it was very tough to handle, especially since it was right in the middle of the Feast of Tabernacles, when we are commanded to express our joy in our salvation. So I asked for prayer on Facebook because of it. Then, as my prayers mixed with those of my brethren and reached God's ear, I felt the sorrow lift slowly as God revealed why He had overwhelmed me with it.

The reason God sent me this manifestation of His feelings was to show me that He is very sorrowful over the terrible nay-saying and backbiting going on right now among His children. So many believers are currently actively and even voraciously mocking those who thought the Rapture might occur this September 20th through 30th, 2017 based on the incredible Heavenly Signs that appeared then in Leo and Virgo.

Even with the mockery they are experiencing, however, many believers (like me!) are continuing to watch, and are now looking at the seventh day of the Feast of Tabernacles on October 12th, and the eighth day assembly after it on Friday the 13th as possibly tied to the Last Trump of the Rapture. But the mockery those who are watching are receiving from those who are not is in direct disobedience to Yahshua's command to not call one's brethren "fool" or "idiot" lest they want to face judgment and possible Hell-fire. As Yahshua said:
Matthew 5:22 ~ “But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire.”
This does not mean that Yahshua never called anyone a fool. In fact, He did call people who were not keeping God's Commandments fools in Matthew 23:16-19. This suggests that Yahshua pointed to the foolishness of the Foolish Virgins in the Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins in Matthew 25:1-13 because they will be found not keeping God's Commandments when Yahshua comes for us in the Rapture, and so they will be left behind. The term "virgins" in that Parable indicates that these were all people within the Church who professed to have accepted Yahshua's righteous blood covering over their sinfulness, but that the foolish ones among them were not truly committed to Christ, and were therefore not dead to the world and living for Him by striving to follow His Commandments.

Although I have received a great deal of flack from the "Once Saved, Always Saved" crowd for saying this, it seems apparent from the Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins alone that keeping the Ten Commandments and the Moral Laws of God are essential if we wish to be a part of the Rapture, as well as of God's Kingdom, especially serving in the coming Millennial Kingdom of Christ, which is going to be given as a reward for the righteous who always strive to love and follow their Messiah and King. But there is another clear statement made by Yahshua that sets the record straight on this, and it is only found in the Gospel of John:
John 14:15-18 ~ “If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever - 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.”
Taking Yahshua's words here at face value, and as more important than any teaching based on the words of mere men, Yahshua is clearly saying that there is a prerequisite to being born again with the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit, and that prerequisite is the desire to keep Yahshua's Commandments, which were centered around loving God with one's whole being, and loving our neighbors (i.e. brethren in Christ) as ourselves. In other words, a person cannot be born again of the Holy Spirit or be ready for the Rapture unless they are keeping Christ's Commandments, and not just the two greatest ones, but all of the Moral Law of God that He emphasized in His earthly ministry. When we make the decision to follow Yahshua unto salvation and do His Commandments, we are sealed with the promised Holy Spirit so that we can do so, as it says in Ephesians 1:13-14:
“In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, 14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.”  
In this passage, the word of truth is found in the fact that we all need redemption because we have not kept the Moral Laws or Commandments of God, and we therefore need a perfect blood sacrifice for sin to overcome this obstacle to our salvation, and it can only be found in Yahshua or Jesus, our Passover Lamb. This is the Gospel of Salvation, and those who accept it understand that, though they are forgiven for their past trespasses, they should want to strive to keep Yahshua's Commandments in the future. When they understand this and repent of their sins, believers receive the Holy Spirit as the seal of the promise of their future inheritance and redemption.

The emphasis on loving one's brethren in the faith as an act of love for Yahshua is proven by examining the Commandment that Yahshua was referring to when He said that the second greatest Commandment was that we should love our neighbor as ourselves. This is found in the Book of Leviticus:
Leviticus 19:18 ~ “You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord.”
The “children of your people” referred to in this passage means the descendants of Abraham through Jacob. These were the Israelites that dwelt together in the Promised Land. They therefore were fellow believers in the One True God Yahweh Elohim. So the second greatest Commandment is to love your brethren in Christ as you love yourself, while the greatest Commandment is to love “the Lord your God” (i.e. Yahweh Elohim) with your whole being (See Matthew 22:36-40). People therefore need to seek to know God the Father through His Son Yahshua, and to love their brethren with all their hearts. This is how we keep Yahshua's Commandments, and this is what we must do before we can receive the Holy Spirit. This means that the Spirit is not automatically given to just anyone upon the profession of faith in Christ, but only if they have a true change of heart, and die to the world in order to fully serve God and keep His Commandments.

What God was showing me by allowing me to experience His sorrow on October 8th is that there are many Foolish Virgins in the Church right now that are not keeping Yahshua's Commandment to watch for His return, and are actually making fun of the people who are anxiously looking for His return and watching for the signs of His coming. This is why Yahshua reprimanded His Apostles for not being able to watch with Him for even one hour when He went to pray in the Garden of Gethsemane on the night before His crucifixion (See Matthew 26:37-40). In fact, we are all commanded by Yahshua to watch for His return, as shown here in the Gospel of Mark:
Mark 13:34-37 ~ “It is like a man going to a far country, who left his house and gave authority to his servants, and to each his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to watch. 35 Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming—in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning— 36 lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping. 37 And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!”
Note that Yahshua referred to the doorkeeper, who was commanded to watch for the master of the house to return. We, as servants of Yahshua the King of kings and Master of all, are the doorkeepers who have been commanded to watch for our Master's return. Furthermore, we were given signs of when His return would be near, as listed in the following Scriptures:
Matthew 24:9-13 ~ “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved.” 
Luke 21:25-26 ~ “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26 men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.” 
2 Timothy 3:1-5 ~ “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!”
We are therefore not only commanded to watch, but have been given the signs that we must watch for in order to be ready when Yahshua comes for His own. All of these signs can be demonstrated to have been fulfilled in our own era, especially over the past 10 years. The exponential increase in earthquakes, storms, floods, droughts, sinkholes, fires, intense heatwaves, extreme cold waves, Blood Moons and Sackcloth Suns from astronomical movements as well as fires, increased solar activity, increasing perturbations in the Earth's magnetic field and polar orientation, false teachers, false prophets, sexual immorality, sexually-transmitted diseases (pestilences), divorce, adultery, homosexuality, transgenderism, rebellion, murder, lying, stealing, disrespect of authority, cannibalism, demonic possession, and many other forms of lawlessness and wickedness are clear evidence that we are living in the very last days of the last days before Christ's return.

So the point of this article is to express God the Father's, and my own deep concern that followers of Christ are not showing the proper love, kindness, mercy and respect that they should be showing to one another in these last days, especially in regard to those who are ACTIVELY watching and looking for the signs of Christ's soon return. Those who are not looking at all, or are only giving it a casual perusal every now and then need to start paying more attention to their brethren who are watching, stop ridiculing and mocking them, and give them the love and respect they deserve for truly following Christ's command to “Watch!” Otherwise, those who are mocking and not watching are putting themselves in danger of being left behind, along with the rich and lukewarm believers in the Church of Laodicea, and the Foolish Virgins who are also not keeping God's Commandment to love one another.

HOPEFUL HEAVENLY SIGNS ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE 2017 FEAST OF SUKKOT

Heavenly Signs During Daylight Hours On 1st Day of Sukkot, October 5th, 2017
On October 5th, 2017, which is the first day of the seven-day Feast of Sukkot or Tabernacles, there are some very hopeful Signs in the Heavens that the deliverance of the Bride of Christ from this decaying, dying world is very near. In fact, it could be sometime during the joyous Autumn Harvest Festival of Israel called the Feast of Sukkot or Tabernacles, which begins at dusk on October 4th, 2017 and ends at dusk on October 11th, 2017.

On October 12th this year, the 8th day that follows this week long Feast is called the Hidden day, and it begins the cycle of Torah readings for the new year. Trumpets are blown on this day, and it is considered the closing day for the yearly cycle of Feasts in Israel that starts in the Spring with Passover. For this reason, some see this 8th day as another high Rapture watch day, although the entire Feast is prophetically and thematically connected to the Rapture, especially the first day when the Full Moon signifying the Bride of Christ is visible at the beginning of the Feast.

This year's Sukkot Full Moon is in the Sign of Pisces the Fishes, which signifies the Two Houses of Israel: Jewish Judah and Gentile Ephraim. Presently, these Two Houses of Israel are in enmity with one another - even though they are fighting to be free of the same Beasts of Revelation. But someday soon they will be united as one under the banner of Yahshua, their mutual Messiah and King.

The modified graphic shown above was taken from an article that I presented last week, and re-did to reflect more potentially prophetic information. It shows Virgo signifying Yahshua as the First, Alpha or Aleph, and Leo in Yahshua's Role as the Last, Omega or Tav as the most prominent Signs in the Heavens during the day on October 5th, 2017, which is the first day of the Feast of Sukkot. As the Aleph and the Tav, our beloved Messiah Yahshua is the Originator and Finisher of our Salvation.

Of greatest interest to me is the proximity of the Sun representing Yahshua or Jesus as the Sun of Righteousness in Malachi 4:2, and Mercury signifying the prophetic witness of the Bible in Virgo the Virgin's chest or heart. Since Virgo can signify Mary the mother of Yahshua, the Jewish people, and the Church, this conjunction of the Sun and Mercury suggests that God's Son and our King of Righteousness Yahshua is ready to come for His Bride at any moment.

The next configuration of interest is the perfect conjunction of the planet Venus signifying Yahshua as the Bright and Morning Star with Mars, the symbol of the blood sacrifice involved in a Blood Covenant, as well as the bloodshed required when a Covenant is broken. In this case, the Blood Covenant is tied to the King of Kings represented by Leo the Lion of Judah. It therefore is tied to the New Covenant of Grace. But because this conjunction is at the tail end of Leo, it signifies that the New Covenant of Grace is now at an end, and Judgment, War and Wrath will soon come swiftly upon those of who have broken this Covenant by rejecting the Blood Sacrifice of Yahshua!

The final configuration of note is that Jupiter, which signifies Yahshua as the Suffering Servant of Isaiah 53, is well outside of the birth canal of the celestial Virgin marked by the star Spica. Furthermore, it is roughly in the position of the red and green anomaly that NASA and Google Sky hid from view in Virgo, and which is only visible in the Infrared range. This anomaly could in fact be one of the celestial objects that will begin to destroy the Earth in the last two Seal Judgments and the first four Trumpet Judgments of the Great Tribulation. It also seems highly symbolic of the Red Dragon waiting to devour the Revelation 12 Man Child signified by Jupiter as the Body of Christ.

"Red Dragon" Anomaly Position In Virgo In September 2017 - Graphic By Luis Vega
This suggests that the deliverance of the Bride or Body of Christ signified by Jupiter as the Man Child is imminent, and could in fact happen sometime during the Feast of Tabernacles. This is further supported by the fact the Sukkot signifies the ingathering of all God's people to celebrate the bounty of God's blessings on His people, as well as the future establishment of Yahshua's coming Millennial Kingdom on the Earth.

It is also another good time of year for weddings and engagements, so let's hope that it may mark the Rapture of the Bride of Christ and the Wise Virgins to attend the beginning of the Wedding of the Lamb in Heaven. Although we can't be sure when the Rapture will take place, we do know that - as the Bride of Christ is enjoying the comfort, protection and love of her Bridegroom - the Great Tribulation will rage on Earth for the next three and a half years, when all who hate and persecute God's people will suffer, die and perish in Hell. Furthermore, at the very end of the Great Tribulation, the Jewish people will finally recognize Yahshua as their Messiah at the Battle of Armageddon. In this regard, Revelation 19 describes Yahshua coming in Glory as a conquering King to vanquish the armies of all the enemy nations surrounding Israel and Jerusalem.

So do not be discouraged, my fellow Watchmen! Keep looking up, for all these Signs in the Heavens are heralding the soon arrival of our deliverance in the Rapture, which is growing ever nearer.

MARANATHA, AND GOD BLESS YOU ALL!

ABIDING UNDER THE SHADOW OF GOD'S WINGS OR TALLIT!


The other day, as I was reading Psalm 91, it dawned on me that the wings being spoken of in Psalm 91:4, where it says “under His wings you shall take refuge” is an allegorical reference to the hem of a Prayer Shawl or Tallit such as the one that Yahshua or Jesus wore all the time, and used to cover His head when He prayed or read from the Bible:

~*~ Psalm 91:3-5 ~*~ 
“Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
4 He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day...”

I found this to be such a profound and uplifting revelation that I wanted to share it. But first, I wanted to find the other lovely passages that refer to God's allegorical Wings or Prayer Shawl. I found many in the Psalms, and one in the Book of Ruth that conjures up this image of God's people finding healing, shelter and protection under the shadow or cover of the Tallit or Prayer Shawl that Yahshua, Who is God Incarnate, would one day wear during His First Coming as a humble Teacher, Prophet and Suffering Servant. Here is the passage in Ruth, and the first one I found in the Psalms that mentions the shadow of God's Wings:

~*~ Ruth 2:12 ~*~ 
“The Lord repay your work, and a full reward be given you
 by the Lord God of Israel, under whose wings you have come for refuge.”

~*~ Psalm 17:7-9 ~*~ 
“Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand,
O You who save those who trust in You
From those who rise up against them.
8 Keep me as the apple of Your eye;
Hide me under the shadow of Your wings,
9 From the wicked who oppress me,
From my deadly enemies who surround me.”

Interestingly, the Prayer Shawl is often used as a Chuppah or Bridal Canopy under which Wedding vows are exchanged, and under which a Newlywed Jewish Couple kiss for the first time as husband and wife, and show their love in public. So the Wings or Edges of the Chuppah under which romantic love is expressed are also the hem of a Tallit or Prayer Shawl, which is worn when reciting Scripture. So - when the Bride of Christ is in prayer - this tells us that all born-again believers can find shelter in the Strong Tower of Yahweh God's Name (Proverbs 18:10) through prayer and Bible study, which lights our way and guides our path through this dark world (Psalm 119:105).

In Matthew 9:20-22 and Matthew 14:35-37, there are passages where people in the crowds around Yahshua reached out in faith to touch the hem of His garment. This is actually referring to the edges of Yahshua's Tallit or Prayer Shawl, and the belief that a righteous Holy man's Tallit had a special power to bless and heal. Since Yahshua was a perfectly righteous man, healing poured forth from within Him and touched everyone that touched the hem of His Tallit in faith. In keeping with this idea, I've quoted a section of Psalm 57 below that speaks of finding protection under God's Wings or Prayer Shawl. Under these allegorical Wings, we can find protection from all sorts of calamities. We can also find a powerful shield there against the hexes, vexes and curses of our wicked enemies, and a steadfast guard against all demonic attacks.

~*~ Psalm 57:1-3 ~*~ 
“Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me!
For my soul trusts in You;
And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge,
Until these calamities have passed by.
2 I will cry out to God Most High,
To God who performs all things for me.
3 He shall send from heaven and save me;
He reproaches the one who would swallow me up. Selah
God shall send forth His mercy and His truth.”

Psalms 36:8 and 63:8, quoted below, also speak of finding strength, joy and pleasure when in the abiding presence of God via our prayers to, and worship of Him. Under the shadow of Yahshua our Bridegroom's Wings, we can find the pleasure and satisfaction of feeling His great love for us, and His tenderness toward all of His beloved children that love Him and others, and not only find refuge under His allegorical Tallit, but invite others to join them there.

~*~ Psalm 36:7-8 ~*~
“Your righteousness is like the great mountains; 
Your judgments are a great deep;
O Lord, You preserve man and beast.
7 How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God!
Therefore the children of men put their trust
under the shadow of Your wings.
8 They are abundantly satisfied with
the fullness of Your house,
And You give them drink from
the river of Your pleasures.”

~*~ Psalm 63:6-8 ~*~ 
“When I remember You on my bed,
I meditate on You in the night watches.
7 Because You have been my help,
Therefore in the shadow of Your wings I will rejoice.
8 My soul follows close behind You;
Your right hand upholds me.”

Last but not least, there is a passage in Malachi that identifies our Messiah Yahshua with the Sun in calling Him the Sun of Righteousness. In that passage, we are told that our Messiah has divine healing in His Wings. This too is an allusion to Christ's Prayer Shawl or Tallit being a source of protection, and the miraculous healing power of God:

~*~ Malachi 4:2 ~*~
“But to you who fear My name
The Sun of Righteousness shall arise
With healing in His wings;
And you shall go out
And grow fat like stall-fed calves.”

Because these Scriptures speak to us of finding protection with God and His Son and Spirit, it would be wise to try and commit these powerful passages to memory, and to quote one or more of them before praying. These will serve to energize your prayer time in order to better fight the enemy, find protection and healing, and chase away the blues.

I pray that this message is a blessing to you all as we fight our enemies in this dark world, and wait and watch for our Messiah and Bridegroom to come for us. I am hopeful that Yahshua is coming for us very soon, and we don't have much longer to wait. In the meantime, stay in an attitude of prayer so that God's peace can rest on you, and you will NOT be afraid of the terror and darkness that this wicked world continually uses to try and rob us of our joy in our salvation.

I know that some people probably consider this article to be either meaningless or akin to spiritual pablum. But I see this as the meat of the Word, and I found it breathtakingly beautiful to see God in this new light. I can see Yahshua wrapped in His Tallit, and holding it open so we can take shelter under His infinitely expanding Wings. There, He can make room for everyone who seeks refuge in Him.

Oh, Thank You, Yahshua for helping me to write what You inspired so beautifully into prose! Hallelu-Yah!

THE HEALING PARABLE HIDDEN IN THE DIVINE DESIGN OF THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM

Loving Unwed Couple - Song of Solomon 2:3-4
Believers are constantly under attack to sin against God through the use of their bodies, which are temples of the Holy Spirit. Our bodies and minds can be made impure by our lust for food, pleasure, sexual intercourse, praise, success, money, and a host of other things. However, God created us to be sexual beings, not just spiritual, and there is nothing in the Bible that says we have to be sexually inactive to be pure. Sexual foreplay outside of the act of intercourse is not dirty, but beautiful in the eyes of our God when it is shared between a married or unmarried man and a woman that love each other.

Notice I said sexual FOREPLAY. Most believers don't understand that the kind of sexual sin the Bible speaks of centers around the act of sexual intercourse, not kissing or hugging or fondling one another. Fornication is sexual intercourse, not foreplay. So when we engage in sexual intercourse with someone other than our spouse or chosen mate, we anger God immensely in our adultery. But too many Christians don't know this and equate ANY kind of sexual pleasure with sin. But it is not a sin unless we want it from someone who is not our chosen mate, or if we fantasize about intercourse with someone we are not married to. That is the kind of temptation we need to rein in and commit to Christ, asking Him to help us to flee from the sin of lust and fornication.

There are other factors to take into consideration regarding sexual satisfaction that believers need to wake up to, such as the fact that some of us are married to spouses that are incapable of, or unwilling to fulfill their ordinary sexual duties, and therefore leave their spouses with unfulfilled sexual desires. I am a victim of this, and I once thought that meant that I had to squelch all sexual desires and become a virtual nun, not thinking about sexual pleasure at all.

I did this for a long time until I did not feel any sexual desire anymore. But after 7 years of this, I started to get deathly ill, and I had no clue as to why until I learned something important about sex, sports and the pursuit of fitness that every believer needs to know. You see, the Lord slowly woke me up to the fact that there are numerous lymph ducts and nodes around our sexual organs and other sensory areas of our bodies where we can feel physical pleasure, like in our necks, chests, shoulders, and in the sensitive areas under our arms. To see the proof of this, look at this diagram of the lymphatic system in a woman, and note all the lymph nodes in the chest, arms, and groin area:

Diagram of the Lymphatic System
These lymph nodes and ducts are full of lymphatic fluid, which is meant to help purify our bodies and remove harmful toxins. As a result, when our lymph system gets filled with toxins that are not removed with physical exertion and/or sex, our natural immunity to disease gets compromised, and we begin to get sick easier. If this goes on for long enough, we can even develop various immune system deficiency disorders like Asthma, Fibromyalgia, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

But unlike the blood, which is pumped through our bodies by the heart, our lymphatic system relies on our muscles to move the lymph fluid to purify the body. Thus, God is telling us through our lymphatic systems that lack of physical exertion and lack of sexual intimacy contributes to making us ill! This means that all of us need to engage in hard physical activity often to stay healthy. Furthermore, it means that we can and should satisfy our sexual needs because it is necessary for our health, whether we're married or not. Of course, when we're not married, or married to someone who is sexually inactive for whatever reason, there is no outlet for our desires to be satisfied other than through massage and masturbation. This is why masturbation is not a sin!

Although we need to control what we think about when we massage our bodies and masturbate to stay healthy, it is not a crime to fantasize about a much younger version of your spouse if you have one, or to fantasize about some imaginary lover if you are an unattached virgin or widow. Just don't fantasize about intercourse, or lust after any real married people, or you will be committing adultery with your mind.

We as believers need to understand that sexual desire is a normal response to stimuli, and is often triggered by our lymphatic system's need to be stimulated. So please stop demonizing the pursuit of sexual satisfaction. When we understand how our bodies work, we realize that they are living parables, telling us not only about who God is, but about how wonderfully He made us, and what we truly need to be healthy.

Wedded Couple Embracing, Song of Solomon 4:10-11
For those who need biblical proof that this might be true, ask yourself this: if God created us as sexual beings, and God made us in His Image, what makes you think God doesn't have a sexual side? Just reading the Song of Solomon, which is a beautiful ode to love that was included in the Bible, and which features passages shared by two lovers before and after marriage, shows that God approves of romantic and sexual love. I've shared examples from the highly erotic Song of Solomon in the illustrations for this article, and the erotic quote from Chapter 2 of the Song is in reference to the two lovers before they become husband and wife in Chapter 4.

No, God the Father doesn't have a human body like we do, but He is One God with Three Persons, and the Father and the Spirit begat the Son. Think about that, and the fact that God said in regard to Adam and Eve's marriage that the TWO would become ONE flesh or substance. This is also reflected in reference to Yahshua's conception  in four places in the First and Second Chapters of the Gospel of John (twice in the first chapter, and twice in the second). There, Yahshua is called the only begotten Son of the Father. Let's look at the dictionary definition of "begotten":

begotten = generated by procreation. In other words, it's been fathered. A somewhat old fashioned adjective, begotten is the past participle of the verb beget, which means to father or produce as offspring. You might recognize this word from John 3:16, one of the most popular and most often quoted bible verses:
"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."
So, the Bible is telling us that God fathered Yahshua, and we know He didn't have sex with Mary. So who was the mother? It seems logical that it was the Holy Spirit, Who is called Wisdom and is designated as feminine with the pronoun "she" in Proverbs 8. So we have Three Persons, One God, and the product of the Union of Father and Spirit was the Preincarnate Yahshua or Jesus.

In His Preincarnate state, Yahshua was the part of God that walked in the Garden with Adam, and that appeared to Abraham and spoke with him. He also had a human body after His birth from Mary's womb. Although Yahshua was considered to be both fully God and fully man, His human side made Him a sexual being. So then, by inference, God is also a sexual being. As a sexual being, Yahshua had sexual needs too, and there is no reason to think that He did not meet them in some sinless way when He had the need.

Again, what the Bible talks about as fornication is sexual intercourse. It is not the act of kissing, hugging or fondling someone else. Also, in most of the Mediterranean and the Middle East, Christian men and women greet each other with a hug and a kiss to each cheek, not a stodgy hand shake. Don't you think Jesus did that, since it was a custom of all of the Abrahamic people of the Middle East until they began to be controlled by Islam? It is clear in Scripture that Yahshua felt affection and love, and so we have to assume that He was not a stranger to the physical need to express it, especially since the Bible tells us that Judas betrayed Yahshua with a kiss.

In Paul's letters, he said that we should not be stumbling blocks to our brethren in regard to customs and traditions, or how we express our faith because some believers were more legalistic than others, when there was no longer a need to be so. This also applies in regard to the way we express affection.

Couple Embracing Under A Tree - Song of Solomon 8:6
If you have been raised with a puritanical mindset, then thinking of physical affection and love may be abhorrent to you. But to someone that has been raised in a culture where physical affection is very much out in the open, this avoidance of physical touch would seem strange and foreign. But Paul said that, for the sake of unity, to not do things that offend others who have not matured in their faith yet when visiting, and in their presence. So we do need to exercise caution with who we are affectionate with.

In summary, we need sex or the equivalent of it to be healthy, and God DESIGNED us that way - as shown by the way our lymphatic system is designed. It's not something you can refute either. Because many studies prove that regular sex in a committed relationship with the opposite sex can increase your longevity by 5 or more years. Of course, we all must gauge our own ability to show restraint and discipline when engaging in romantic love and foreplay before marriage to avoid sexual intercourse. We need to gauge whether or not we should abstain from sexual foreplay based on our relationship with God, and the degree of our sexual desire. But after marriage, no more restraint other than sharing your sexual intimacy in private, and doing no harm to one another in the act is necessary.

God bless you all!

WILL YOM KIPPUR 2017 MARK OUR BLESSED HOPE?

Signs in the Heavens on Yom Kippur, Sept. 21st, 3 BC, Around the Time of Yahshua's Birth
Well, The Sign of the Woman Clothed with the Sun has come and gone, so now what? Well, it's interesting to note that September 30th, 2017 is the Day of Atonement or Yom Kippur, which is the holiest day of the year on the Jewish Calendar. Due to a late sighting of the Moon on the Feast of Trumpets, however, some say Yom Kippur will be on October 1st this year - although the Jews will still  be celebrating it on September 30th.  Because of the holiness of this day, it is no surprise that it was targeted by the Total Solar Eclipse of August 21st, which crossed America from sea to shining sea as a warning to the Church of America, where the largest body of believers in the world reside.

The Day of Atonement is 40 days from that eclipse, and I was shown that this is because it is connected to the Sign of Jonah. There is also a seven day window between the Sign of the Woman Clothed with the Sun on September 23rd and the Day of Atonement on September 30th, much like God gave Noah a seven day window between when he and his family were shut into the Ark by God and when the Flood began. In addition, according to the Leviticus 25:9 (Quoted Below), a blowing of Trumpets is supposed to be done on the 10th day of the Seventh Month, or on the Day of Atonement in a Jubilee Year. So this would mean that the last shofar blast blown on the Day of Atonement would mark the last Trump. Since this is so, we've got a bigger window to work with in relation to the Rapture this year if we take that into account, and see it as the real Last Trump of the Jubilee Year 5777. As it says in Leviticus:
Leviticus 25:9 ~ "Then you shall cause the trumpet of the Jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement you shall make the trumpet to sound throughout all your land."
Interestingly, I did a study that suggests that Yahshua was born between the Day of Atonement on September 21st, 3 BC and the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles on September 26th, 3 BC. In 3 BC, the Day of Atonement was ten days after the Woman Clothed with the Sun appeared on the Feast of Trumpets on September 11th, 3 BC in His birth year. The Day of Atonement was on September 21st, 3 BC, and it began at dusk on the 20th, just as the the Feast of Trumpets technically did this year. Coincidence? I think not! The illustration at the top of this page depicts the signs on the Day of Atonement or Yom Kippur in 3 BC, and they suggest that Yahshua could well have been born on that day, and certainly not beyond the first day of the Feast of Sukkot. If Yahshua was born on Yom Kippur, then it would seem logical that His Second Coming in the Rapture would also be on that day.

Also, on the year that Yahshua was born, the Sun represented Yahshua as the Sun of Righteousness in Malachi 4:2. As such, it was the Son of God signified by the Sun, or the Son of Man as the righteous Light of the World that was born that year. On that same year Jupiter, which signifies Yahshua as the Suffering Servant of Isaiah 53, was in near conjunction with Regulus the King Star. Interestingly, Spica marks the exit of the heavenly Virgin's birth canal. So the conjunction of the Sun, Spica and the planet Mercury, which signifies the Scribes and Prophets of God, marked this Sign as a very significant prophetic event.

Signs in the Heavens on the Feast of Tabernacles, Sept. 26th, 3 BC, Around the Time of Yahshua's Birth.
Signs in the Heavens on the Feast of Tabernacles, Oct. 5th, 2017
If we are not up in Heaven by the end of September 30th, 2017, I will look further ahead to the Feast of Tabernacles on October 5th through 11th. Why is this? Because the Sun was in the same position on the 1st Day of the Feast of Tabernacles in 3 BC as Jupiter will be on October 5th, 2017, which is between the Virgin's legs - just where a newborn baby would be found. The illustrations above this paragraph show the Signs in the Heavens on the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles or Sukkot at Yahshua's Birth, and this year, on the the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles.

Through these illustrations, it can be seen that the Sun and Jupiter will be in the same relative positions on those days. Incidentally, this is right where the Red Dragon anomaly that can only be seen in the infrared, and this is between the legs of Virgo the Virgin that NASA and Google Earth have hidden from view. Could this be a sign that the Rapture will be on that day? Or is the Day of Atonement the Day of the arrival of our Blessed Hope? Only time will tell!

Of particular note is the Mars, Venus Conjunction of the 1st Day of the Feast of Tabernacles on October 5th, 2017. It could be signifying that a war is imminent, or it may mark a Peace Treaty that will be broken. With the Planet Jupiter coming into the proximity of where the Red Dragon anomaly was last seen, this is also another indication that World War III may be imminent.

Blood Moon Triad 2011
Significantly, most people don't know that both 2011 and 2018 were marked by three Total Lunar Eclipses or Blood Moons, and the middle Lunar Eclipse in both years is a special Central Lunar Eclipse, which is VERY rare. This is when the Earth's shadow passes directly over the center of the Moon. It is also interesting to note that, in the year of Yahshua's birth, Sukkot fell between September 26th to October 2nd.

Blood Moon Triad 2018
The Central Lunar Eclipse in 2018 is also significant for another very important reason. It falls on Tu B'Av or the 15th of Av, which falls on July 27th, 2018, and is the Jewish equivalent to Valentine's Day. As such, it is a favorite day for weddings and engagement announcements. So, now that the Feast of Trumpets has passed and we are technically in the Jewish year 5778, which is tied to 2018, it could be that this is the year that will mark the redemption of God's people in the Rapture to the Wedding of the Lamb, and the beginning of the Great Tribulation on Earth.

In closing, a friend remarked to me today that the scoffers are out in force everywhere right now, and I feel that's to be expected. After all, Yahshua did say: “Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” in Luke 18:8. He asked this to imply that few would, and the evidence is everywhere.


Maranatha, and God bless you all!
Have a blessed week ahead, and keep looking UP!
