Listener - Brother Eliyahu, Today I've jumped ahead in the programs to number 140 and I've listened to 140 through 145. (I'll go back later and catch up, i promise) If ever I have had a sense of urgency, I do now!.. Brother Eliyahu, I'm dealing with some sensations within my heart I have never experienced before. It's penetrating me. I'm surrounded by it. It's in my mind, in my heart... I thought I've experienced some things as a Christian, but this takes the cake! While I was listening I made a conscious decision that in everything I do, I will serve YHWH. And this experience began. and it's been half the day so far. I've heard of being on fire for God, this is amazing! ..Now, let me say that I have always been a person that am slow to get excited about anything. It's as if, the more I talk about it, the more this fire burns. And this gets back to Holy Order Restored, when this burning started... Maybe a year ago, after I found the Messianic way, I began identifying myself as B'nai Ephraim. It seemed appropriate, but I didn't understand what it really meant. Now these things are making a lot of sense to me.
Tsiyon Answer - I'm blessed to hear that YHWH is moving upon your heart by His Holy Spirit. We truly have amazing things ahead of us. It only makes sense to be stirred up about it! Making that decision to serve Him in everything is key. That has opened up your spirit to a fresh infilling of His Spirit. Praises to His Name!
Thoughts from Eliyahu ben David:
Right now we have some new faces at our home. Shane came here all the way from Canada on his motorcycle. He has been here for a few days. He has only been associated with Tsiyon for a few months, but already he has listened to all the programs and has read everything he can get his hands on from us. Right now he is devouring my proof copy of my new book,
Announcing: Judgment Day. I've got to find something else for him to chew on after he finishes the book. If I don't I'm afraid he might suck my brain out through my ear! Seriously, this young man is absolutely insatiable. I don't think we've retired before 1 AM since Shane has been here (kind of rough with 5 kids getting up at 6 AM .. who needs sleep, right?). Shane takes the phrase "I've got a few questions" to a whole new level! If any of this sounds like a complaint it is really just the opposite. We are blessed to have Shane with us. Where Shane lives he is
surrounded by godlessness and unbelief, yet he loves YHWH with all his heart. Shane is an overcomer. Besides that, he is really helpful in every way - he even fixed my car for me! :-)
All kidding aside, what I love about both Shane and Rebecca, and all of our ministry partners, is that love of truth that just keeps digging deeper. Something both of them report is a tendency to annoy people because of asking the "wrong" questions and believing the "wrong" things. The scattered remnant have constantly been made to feel that there is something wrong with them because they have loved the truth enough to just keep digging - no matter what others think. It is a big discovery and a big relief to find out that it is the world that is wrong! This is the confirmation you get when you meet other remnant believers who have been walking in that same experience you have been walking in for years. It is a wonderful thing to find out you really are part of a bigger plan and that other people like you are discovering that too. I reached that point a while ago, but I am seeing that awakening going on now with an increasing number of folks. That's where some of us are at right now, in the spring of 2009.
"Then those who feared YHWH spoke one with another; and YHWH listened, and heard, and a book of memory was written before him, for those who feared YHWH, and who honored his name. "They shall be mine,” says YHWH of Hosts, “my own possession in the day that I make, and I will spare them, as a man spares his own son who serves him. Then you shall return and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him who serves God and him who doesn’t serve him"" Mal 3:16-18
It has been hard for the remnant who fear YHWH, who are scattered in the midst of the wicked. Be encouraged! YHWH has written your name in His book. Now, it is a whole new day.
