5785: Who Am I, What Is Happening, and What To Do

We have entered into a time and season that is very unknown territory. We have crossed a threshold in time with the solar eclipse on April 8th, Nissan 1, the beginning of the Biblical New Year, but the question now is how to move forward and grow personally as well as the Body of Yeshua from here on out. What should we expect to see as we grow in society technologically speaking, the economic landscape, societal realities, and as we move further into the end times what does it look like to truly become the Bride of Yeshua and what are the actionable steps to become the John 17 generation? Enough with theology and theory, how do we make it happen?

All of the incredible events that coincided on Nissan 1 have us on the edge of our seats wondering and waiting to see what will happen next, but instead of waiting to see what will happen, all of these signs and events should be leading us especially to making serious changes in our own lives and routines in order to bring us closer to who God has called us to be personally as a generation seeing clearly the landscape in which we are being called to do so. Let’s get practical and know who we are in Yeshua and what we are being called to do.

Who Are You?

If we don’t know who we are how can we expect to move forward in purpose and with great effect for the glory of God and His Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven? Each of us are a threefold being as born again believers in Yeshua. We are Body, Soul, Spirit and heart, and this is vitally important to understand as we move into this new season.

Body

We are made up of flesh, bones and blood, and this is our physical body given to us by God. It is like the hardware of ourselves which is like the processor, storage and memory of a computer. This body is what God is calling us to die to, to die to the flesh. Romans 8:12-14 puts it clearly.

So then, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation, but not to our flesh [our human nature, our worldliness, our sinful capacity], to live according to the [impulses of the] flesh [our nature without the Holy Spirit]— for if you are living according to the [impulses of the] flesh, you are going to die. But if [you are living] by the [power of the Holy] Spirit you are habitually putting to death the sinful deeds of the body, you will [really] live forever. For all who are allowing themselves to be led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

As we die to to the flesh we have to be able to live according to something else, another reality which is by the leading of the uncorrupted Holy Spirit. This does not happen overnight but starts with the Soul.

Soul

Simply put, the soul is our mind, will and emotions. It is the only thing that is not renewed when we are born again receiving Yeshua as Lord and savior and having the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The soul is the Software so to speak and is akin to the programs and applications that run a computer and in order to see a change in our lives we have to download new applications and programs to see a change in our habits and, thoughts, mindset, emotions, etc. to align with the heart of the Father. Romans 12:1-2 covers both the body and the soul which says,

Therefore I urge you, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies [dedicating all of yourselves, set apart] as a living sacrifice, holy and well-pleasing to God, which is your rational (logical, intelligent) act of worship. And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you].

Habits and iniquities will continue to plague us and hold us back from our God given destiny if we do not get in the Word of God and realize what it means to be born again and baptized of the Holy Spirit so that we can now enter into the new habit as true sons and daughters of God. This sounds trivial, but it is foundational and without it we will not and cannot progress into the life and promises God has planned for us. So what is the outcome of setting the mind (Soul) on the flesh instead of the Spirit? “For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.”(Romans 8:6). Now for the Spirit.

Spirit

Before we accepted Yeshua as Lord and savior we were literally the walking dead, but when we were born again and received Him as Lord and Savior and the baptism of the Holy Spirit we were brought into new and everlasting life and direct communication with Abba Father. Our new Spirit is like the operating system of a computer, the intermediary between the software (Soul) and the hardware (Body). Our new Spirit gives us the ability to have constant communion with God, and gives us a new conscience, and enables out intuition. Through Ezekiel, God spoke before Yeshua came telling us, “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.” (Ezekiel 36:26-36).

On the same topic, Yeshua tells Nicodemus in Jerusalem, the teacher of teachers, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot [ever] enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh [the physical is merely physical], and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not be surprised that I have told you, ‘You must be born again [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, sanctified]. So, we have been given a new heart, a new Spirit, and the Holy Spirit which gives us access to the throne room of God and the leading and guiding of the Holy Spirit if we so choose to be lead by Him, which leads us to the heart.

Heart

The heart is the combination of the Body, Soul and Spirit. The body is trying to lead us via fleshly desires as sons and daughters of Adam and Eve in a sinful way. The soul is where we have the freedom of choice to either conform to the fleshly world desires brought on by the original sin of Adam and Eve, or to choose to conform and be transformed by the living Word of God daily as we read it and understand the promises of God in the midst of all that is transpiring in the world. The new Spirit we have been given and the Holy Spirit is what beckons us into the presence of Almighty God, which pulls us like gravity into our God given destiny and into action with anointing, power, and most of all the love of the Father to be like Yeshua, like the John 17 generation. Therefore it is not about what we can do for God in our fleshly ability, but how much we can yield and become one with the Word of God and the Holy Spirit to be like Yeshua and the Father. “I have given to them the glory and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected and completed into one, so that the world may know [without any doubt] that You sent Me, and [that You] have loved them, just as You have loved Me.” (John 17:22-23). We cannot become like Yeshua without the Holy Spirit and we cannot know Abba Father without the Holy Spirit who knows the the mind of God?

“For what person knows the thoughts and motives of a man except the man’s spirit within him? So also no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the [Holy] Spirit who is from God, so that we may know and understand the [wonderful] things freely given to us by God. We also speak of these things, not in words taught or supplied by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining and interpreting spiritual thoughts with spiritual words [for those being guided by the Holy Spirit].”

It is time to stop striving and begin abiding on the Most High God as we cannot know Him and be like Yeshua without the guidance, leadership, grace and favor brought about by the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Why Are We Here, What’s Holding Us Back, and What is the Blueprint For Victory?

We have been called in this time and season to be worshippers of YAHWEH in Spirit and Truth. “But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.” (John 4:23). That hour has come, and that is our call to do so in the oneness of the Holy Spirit and to become the bride of Yeshua, many nations, tribes and tongues, different cultures, languages, and ideologies conforming to the living Word of God and arriving to the Psalm 23 table of the Father together in the oneness of the Holy Spirit. This is that season and we are here to worship the king of glory and welcome Yeshua as the King of kings becoming like Him together as this is the requirement of the bride. Impossible without the Holy Spirit, but achievable only in obedience and reliance upon God. We need Him and we need each other.

The things that hold us back are iniquity which we can apply the blood of Yeshua to (Exodus 34:7), but also the things that God hates which He explicitly states in Proverbs 6:16-19 which says,

These six things the LORD hates; Indeed, seven are repulsive to Him: A proud look [the attitude that makes one overestimate oneself and discount others], a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that creates wicked plans, feet that run swiftly to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies [even half-truths], and one who spreads discord (rumors) among brothers.

These things hold us back from the desire of God for us to be one with Him and amongst ourselves. And the antithesis of these things are the fruit of the Spirit which are written in Galatians 5:22-24 that says, “But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature together with its passions and appetites. So now we have the litmus test, what is right and what is wrong, but remember it is not our sacrifice that pleases God, but our closeness and oneness, and abiding in Him together that satisfies and pleases Him while also bringing about the greatest joy and love in us. Our works are futile without His direction which is so scarily dictated in Matthew 7:21-23 that says,

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

These are the things holding us back from achieving the fullness of John 17, but the increase and total reliance on God will bring us into the reality of John 17, not just personally but for this entire generation. You are not alone, there is a whole family out there who desire the same oneness with God and one another as you do, don’t let the rest hold you back or keep you from praying for those who still need Yeshua.

The blueprint for victory is both simple and totally against our fleshly nature. To understand how to know how our sins have been dealt with and erased we have to follow, read and understand Romans 1-3. Sounds simple, seems simple, but read it and let us know if it is. Then, we have to know how to deal with the factory of sins which comes in Romans 5-8. It is as clear as day, but in order to achieve it we need the Holy Spirit.

But Israel, pursuing the law of righteousness, has not attained to the law of righteousness. Why? Because they did not seek it by faith, but as it were, by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumbling stone. As it is written: “Behold, I lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offense, and whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” (Roman 9:31-33) It’s simple but to do so means to die to self and live according to the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Lastly, What is the blueprint for absolute victory over the sin condition and the deception and manipulation of the fallen kingdom of darkness? Romans 9-13 will make you the most free person you can be, as this is the blueprint of victory that God has given. Ask the Holy Spirit to speak to you as you read this and the entire Word of God as it will open the realm of the Kingdom of God like you have never experienced before in order to bring it here on earth as it is in heaven.

What is Coming and How to Respond

The rhetoric of the powers that be globally are saying that by 2030 we will own nothing and be happy. In other words, instead of making a living doing a specific job or having a particular skill or career, the government will give us a fixed income to continue being part of society and making the economy run to create some value. How is that possible? As artificial intelligence continues to evolve, there will be a discontinuation of the jobs of many people within the next 5 to 10 years, so significant that it will lead to a major shift in global society when we as believers will be hard pressed to believe the truth about our reality as sons and daughters of God, what role we play, and how we move forward, especially those who do not yet know Yeshua as Lord and Savior. If this is truly the case then what has been written previously needs to be common knowledge to say the least, and innate within us knowing the Word of God inherently to understand why we are children of God.

Conclusion of the Matter

We must always remember, especially now in this season and generation that in order to reach the level of John 17, it is not on our own, but together as the Body of Yeshua putting differences aside, and being led in the oneness of the Holy Spirit, not by power or by might, as we are about to enter into a time in world history that no matter how hard we try it will not be enough as the governments of the world will have nearly total control and technology will have humanity in hand cuffs. God is with us and if we are with Him then bring it on. The conclusion of the matter is this:

“Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man’s all. For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.” — Ecclesiastes 12:13-14

Adonai bless you and keep you!
