Proverbs: 20-6 Many a man proclaims his own loyalty, but who can find a trustworthy man?
As a society, we place a lot of importance on loyalty; our workplaces wish for their employees to be loyal to them, as well as many businesses such as restaurants, credit card companies, car companies that ask for our loyalty to their service or brand. And of course it is also seen in families, friendships, and marriages as well as in government, in that we as citizens are expected to be loyal to our nation.
“In law, treason is the crime that covers some of the more serious acts of disloyalty to one's sovereign or nation. Historically, treason also covered the murder of specific social superiors, such as the murder of a husband by his wife (treason against the king was known as high treason and treason against a lesser superior was petit treason). A person who commits treason is known in law as a traitor.” (Wikipedia)
loy⋅al⋅ty –noun, plural -ties.
1. the state or quality of being loyal; faithfulness to commitments or obligations.
2. faithful adherence to a sovereign, government, leader, cause, etc.
3. an example or instance of faithfulness, adherence, or the like: a man with fierce loyalties.
2. fealty, devotion, constancy. Loyalty, allegiance, fidelity all imply a sense of duty or of devoted attachment to something or someone. Loyalty connotes sentiment and the feeling of devotion that one holds for one's country, creed, family, friends, etc. Allegiance applies particularly to a citizen's duty to his or her country, or, by extension, one's obligation to support a party, cause, leader, etc. Fidelity implies unwavering devotion and allegiance to a person, principle, etc.
1, 2. faithlessness.
I am loyal to my employer, my friends, my family, but I am not loyal to the nation of my birth and while I am a law abiding citizen, the allegiance of my heart belongs to my God and heavenly Father and Mother, Yahweh and Her son Christ Jesus our Savior. This nation is dead to me for many reasons, but mainly because I know that it, along with many other nations, are traitors to Yahweh whom I serve. And in this aspect, I am a lot like Ruth, who after the death of her husband, committed herself in faithfulness and loyalty to her mother-in-law Naomi.
16 But Ruth replied:
Do not persuade me to leave you
or go back and not follow you.
For wherever you go, I will go,
and wherever you live, I will live;
your people will be my people,
and your God will be my God.
17 Where you die, I will die,
and there I will be buried.
May the LORD do this to me,
and even more,
if anything but death separates you and me.
Right now in this country, the leader proclaims that he will bring hope and change to what is considered by many to be a great nation that has come into some very hard times. But can he really be trusted? To answer this question you need only to look at the history of this nation and many others.
I ask you, would you rather place your faith and loyalty in leaders who continually disappoint those they are meant to serve, or in Yahweh, who has consistently made good on every promise made to Her creation? Consider the motives of man versus the motives of the One who created us. We know that Yahweh is loyal to Her children, but to whom or what are those in power loyal to?
Matthew 6:24 24 "No one can be a slave of two masters, since either he will hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot be slaves of God and of money.
The choice is yours and mine to have via the gift of free will but you must make your decision now, because as Christ stated above, no one can be a slave of two masters.
I pray that this article along with its accompanying scriptures give you cause to think, ponder and search your heart. Because at this current time, there is no promise of hope or change that can be made, and no action that can be taken that will result in stopping Father’s wrath from being poured out upon this world. So choose wisely…
James 4:8 8 Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, sinners, and purify your hearts, double-minded people!
Proverbs 3:3 Never let loyalty and faithfulness leave you. Tie them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart.
Deuteronomy 7:9 Know that Yahweh your God is God, the faithful God who keeps His gracious covenant loyalty for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commands.
Every story has a beginning, middle and an end. My story began not 39 years ago, but more aptly it truly began nearly 5 years ago when Father called me into Her and Christ’s service. Was I expecting it? I can’t say that I was. Sure, I’d always felt deep down inside that something important was coming my way but I’m sure a lot of people feel that. The dreamers of the world dream of worldly things…but this was to come from beyond this world.
I’ve spent the last couple of days digesting a recent update of information on the Spiritual War that was given to the ministers of the Light of Life Ministry by the Cherubic Order of Holy Angels. They were words that we’ve waited to hear for what feels like a long time and at the same time seems to have passed in the blink of an eye. As I write this I pray to Father Yahweh to guide thoughts in choosing the right words because it feels as if this might be the most important article I’ve written and will write from this side of Armageddon.
I’ve lived an ordinary life, but a blessed one. Sure, I’ve had my share of ups and downs, mistakes and disgraces, challenges and disappointments. I came into this world as an unwanted child and Father willing, will leave this world as a much wanted and loved Child of God. I began this journey thinking myself a good person as most of us do, and near the end of this journey realizing how faulty I truly am and how undeserving I am of the grace I am under and the salvation that has been offered me to take hold of.
To this day I do not know why Father chose me to serve Her and Christ Jesus in these End Times. None of us ministers do. But as for myself, Regina Adonna-Aaron, and Deborah-Moses, JohannaMoria-Angelinayaona, Jeshaiah, and Elisha Amana Yovanna, the joy of receiving the call that spoke so strongly and distinctly to our hearts has never ended and we’ve striven to do our best in sharing the good news, the warnings, and the truth. Father has guided our hearts throughout the months, the days, the hours and even the minutes during times of difficulties.
In this my journey of service to Father and Christ Jesus our Savior, I vowed to do my very best and to do all that I am humanly capable of in shedding the light of truth to the masses.
The truth as it stands right now, in this 10th month of the year 2009 is that time is very, very short. I want to assure you that when I tell you this, it’s not to frighten you because beyond Armageddon, in Christ’s Kingdom and even beyond that time into Eternity, there is so very much to look forward to. People hope and pray for peace on earth every day, but what they don’t realize is that it won’t come until Father’s plan for creation and expulsion of all evil from creation is completed. These things must happen, so that our prayers can be answered – it’s just that it has to happen in Father’s own timing and according to Her will.
The news we were given is this: Last week, the Lions of Zion offensive had begun in establishing a corridor that would act as the escape route from earth at the Rapture – in the same way that the dry sea bed of the Red Sea was the Israelite’s escape route from the Egyptians. Satan’s side was given a fair chance at halting the establishment of the corridor and ultimately avert the rapture but they failed. The corridor was secured and continues to be held by Father’s faithful Holy Angels that are assigned to this task.
The important thing to understand is that this is the prelude to the gathering of Father's flock to safe haven through the corridor to the waiting Rapture vessel. And for those Raptured, it will mean the death of their fleshly vessels to the rebirth in spirit vessels that will be almost instantaneous.
5 Do not fear, for I am with you;
I will bring your descendants from the east,
and gather you from the west.
6 I will say to the north: Give [them] up!
and to the south:
Do not hold [them] back!
Bring My sons from far away,
and My daughters from the ends of the earth —
1 Corinthians 15:52 "in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we will be changed."
We do not know when this will occur; only that it will be soon. The time table is in Father's mind and has not yet been made known as to when the gathering will begin. It could be at any moment, or it could be longer than anticipated.
Mark 13:33 Watch! Be alert! For you don't know when the time is [coming].
Matthew 24:36 [ No One Knows the Day or Hour ] "Now concerning that day and hour no one knows—neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son —except the Father only.
I’m sharing this with you, dear readers and extended flock, so that you will be warned but also so that if you haven’t already, you might make preparations within your own self and in your heart and mind. I encourage you to share this truth with others if you should feel moved to, so that they might be informed and prepare as well.
Father is ready to take Her children home and remove Satan’s imprint from creation. Humans will come to realize they have never done anything in private, and that all has been watched and recorded. Each human must stand upon their own merit if they do not come under the Ransom Sacrifice. That Sacrifice is the only thing provided in creation that can blot out past sins.
For those that scoff, or who refuse to accept and believe, they will weep when they see the full truth staring themselves in their hearts. But for them, it will be too late, and that is where they gnash their teeth at knowing what is to befall them.
Psalm 112:10 "The wicked shall see it and be grieved, he shall gnash with his teeth and melt away; the desire of the wicked shall perish."
In a world where the truth may seem for so many, so hard to find, I do not ask you to take my word for it but instead turn to Yahweh, who’s Holy Spirit reveals all things. Do not ask me to provide proof, because the proof is all around you and if your heart is open to receiving truth, then you will see and understand just as I have. Do not place your faith or your trust in me, but in our Heavenly Father, Yahweh, who saves. And lastly, no matter what happens, do not give up hope and do not abandon Father. Hang on and trust in Yahweh’s promise.
Psalm 119:32 I pursue the way of Your commands, for You broaden my understanding.
Obtaining understanding is a slow and steady progression. I can sometimes feel in my heart the times in which I try to gain understanding of things that perhaps it’s simply not the time to understand. While Yahweh says that we must dig deeply, it’s truly more of an excavation rather than just jumping in and digging a ditch.
It must be done slowly and carefully, like at an archeological site, each layer must be removed carefully so that you might fully understand before going on to the next layer. At the same time, you cannot build a wall by placing bricks up high before first building its foundation. This all takes time.
Father’s purpose and plan is so great and so beyond our human scope of understanding that at times we must wait, and remain ignorant to some things whilst others are taught first. It’s like learning how to read. One doesn’t simply jump into reading, before they’ve learned the alphabet.
Slowly over time, Father’s plan is revealed to us and along the way we receive droplets of understanding and Her plan begins to make more sense. And at the same time, the parts we do not yet know, or do not yet understand, are taken on faith. This is probably partially due to the following:
Revelation 17:17 “For God has put it into our hearts to carry out His plan by having one purpose, and to give their kingdom to the beast until God’s words are accomplished.”
It is true. I feel within my heart a want to carry out Yahweh’s plan. Whatever it might be, wherever it might lead, however it might be revealed. My part is small, but in union with the Holy Family and serving one purpose – the vindication and sanctification of Yahweh’s Holy Name. The understanding of how and why this is done has been revealed over time.
As followers of Christ, each day we walk by faith – because the deeper understanding of this interest we all share and feeling in our hearts is yet to be revealed. Our individual realities is all we know, but there are others, including Father’s own reality that She allows us to share in even though we might at this time not fully comprehend.
Job 12:13 Wisdom and strength belong to God; counsel and understanding are His.
Job 32:8 But it is a spirit in man and the breath of the Almighty that give him understanding.
Particularly now in these End Times, we must move forward always and often on faith alone because so much is happening that we do not understand. But at the same time, we must pray diligently for understanding and that we might be found worthy of receiving it.
We must also pray that the understanding we do have that is in the truth, we hold onto and that all else be dismissed; so that it might be fortified with further understanding and flourish. Pray that we might succeed in fighting off this gene of evilness that we’ve inherited, so that one day we might be whole and healthy; perfect in Father’s sight.
I also pray that this ministry of Father and Christ’s, has brought and continues to bring understanding to the extended flock so that when the time comes we might all be counted as salvageable in their eyes.
Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is supreme—so get wisdom. And whatever else you get, get understanding.
The Definition of the Word Trust:
1. Reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety etc. of a person or thing; confidence
2. Confident expectation of something; hope.
3. A person on whom or thing in which one relies: God is my trust.
Job 15:31 Let him not put trust in worthless things, being led astray, for what he gets in exchange will prove worthless.
Psalm 31:14 But I trust in You, LORD; I say, "You are my God".
Psalm 37:5 Commit your way to the LORD: trust in Him, and He will act.
Psalm 40:4 How happy is the man who has put his trust in the LORD and has not turned to the proud or to those who run after lies!
Psalm 62:1 [Trust in God alone] I am at rest in God alone; my salvation comes from Him.
Psalm 146:3 Do not trust in nobles, in man, who cannot save.
Proverbs 20:6 Many a man proclaims his own loyalty, but who can find a trustworthy man?
Proverbs 28:26 The one who trusts in himself is a fool, but one who walks in wisdom will be safe.
Would you rather.... Trust Everyone....or Trust No one?
This question came up recently while playing a game with a group of friends and the answer was interesting. Half the group answered Trust in Everyone, while the other half answered Trust No one.
Now obviously, neither of the two options is necessarily healthy...or even realistic in this day and age of our world, but it did cause me to ponder the question quite a bit and I turned to The Word for increased understanding.
Over time, because I've learned the importance of guarding one's heart and trusting first and foremost in Yahweh, my answer to the question was Trust No one...and this is why:
In the same way that you shouldn't put your physical life at risk by trusting any stranger on the street, neither should you put your spiritual life at risk either. I think that Psalm 40:4 resonates strongly here because it speaks of those who turn to the proud and chase after lies. To help put this into perspective in regards to today's day and age - look at the millions who have placed their trust and hopes in our president and in preachers on TV, even talk show hosts who claim to have all the answers to today's problems and frustrations.
Trusting in Yahweh, our Creator, is not trusting in a person per se because Yahweh is our God. Yahweh is spirit. Yahweh is perfect...while mankind is so very far from both god and perfection.
To place all your trust in Yahweh is to have hope. It is to have confidence in Her integrity. You simply cannot have this in mankind, because of the gene of sin we all carry.
Even when I minister, I encourage those who question me not to take my word on it - but instead to pray, ponder, even do research on the things that I've shared. This is because while I am Yahweh and Christ's minister and the things I share are truth, it is our Creator who speaks to the heart and reveals all knowledge and understanding. It is by the power of the Holy Spirit that all things are revealed - not by man or woman.
1 Thessalonians 1:5 For our gospel did not come to you in word only, but also in power, in the Holy Spirit, and with much assurance.
Romans 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
When I speak...when I write... I share with our extended flock that which Father Yahweh has shared with me. But, I do not ask that anyone place their trust in me because I am not worthy of their trust. Instead, I encourage all to place their trust in Yahweh whom I serve and where it rightly belongs. I have no power, no control. I cannot save. I am only a tool. A cog in the wheel of Father's family and a vessel that shares the outpouring of knowledge that has been shared with me both freely and with all who will listen. Place your trust not in me, or in any man or woman, but in Yahweh who saves.
