Introduction

It was 9:30 p.m., when I heard, "lights out!" 

More of a metaphorical feeling than an actual command, as the room was still heavily lit from the lights in the main room.  Besides, who tells a grown man when to turn out the lights, right? 

As I sat in the bed and surveyed the area, I exhaled deeply.  One stainless steel toilet, no lid; two hanging hooks; two plastic bags for personal belongings; one steel frame bunk bed, each with a hard plastic mat on it, no pillows, all in a 6X10 room, the walls, caked with many years of grime.  And the smells: mildew and very old paint, if I am correct. 

This is my new reality. I am in prison and everything is about to change…

 

Breaking the Chains is a devotional journey, documenting the loss of my life, and the gaining of the life I was designed for by my Creator.

Much of what you read and discover within was tempered in the furnace of affliction.  It's coming to your doorstep, brother and sister.  Everything that can be shaken will, and only what is of Him shall remain.

Do not be dismayed at your fiery trial, for your life is found in it.  He, who is Holy, is removing all that opposes Him, eradicating any mindset contrary to His.

This devotional has been created with Hebrews 4:12-13 in mind at all times: "For the word of Yahweh is living and active.  Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart (mind).  Nothing in all creation is hidden from Yahweh's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to who we must give an account."

Come with me on this journey, suffer well, break the chains, and find your first love.

Michael David Beiter Jr.

1. Merciful One

Yet he was merciful; He forgave their iniquities and did not destroy them. Time after time, He restrained his anger and did not stir up His full wrath. He remembered that they were but flesh, a passing breeze that does not return. (Psalm 78:38)

It is because of my love for you that I grieve over you. You see, your anger manifests from selfish desire, whereas mine rises in desiring for you. Have I not said all that I have done is good? (Genesis 1:31)

Every time you walk away from my garden of love, my only choice is to watch, as my children walk into pain. My anger is kindled as you walk away from all of the blessings I have for you. Do I raise cursed children?

Oh how you need to long to know me better. My ways, unlike yours, are always directed towards goodness. How many times would you watch a young child slam her head into a wall, after explaining to her why it will only hurt her? What bothers you most about a scenario as this? Of course, it is the pain you see the young girl putting herself through. After a bit, it causes you to stop her, against her will.

Yes my child, this is what burdens me about my children. The constant desire to add pain to the life I have provided for you.

Yes, now you see!

Obedience to me is mandatory, however, only so I can bless you more.

I am Abba Father, and I know better than you.

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

2. My Little Ones

Protect their little hearts,
that innocence remain.
All that have betrayed us,
that they not feel the pain.
Infusions of love and peace,
their hearts feel no strain.
These are my little ones,
My hope. My daughters. My sons.
Fiercely I protect them,
with prayers and supplication.
I set them in Your palm,
their angels stand nearby.
Not one hair missing,
no tears in their eyes.
Protect there little hearts,
that innocence remain.
All those that have betrayed us,
that they not feel the pain.
 

It is in the weakness you are strong. You must praise in this though. Giving in is not an option, rejoicing is commanded.

Fall into His hands if you must fall, but know it is in His hands and in this rejoice. It's the giving in that brings joy in the morning. He does not need you to set the direction. He does not want you to set the direction.

Fall into his hands, rest in His hands, as He takes you where your going. Sing a song of praise as He carries you to His destiny.

This is His way. Walk in it.

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

3. My Voice

Oh My little ones, were I to give you a glimpse into my day. What wonder, what depravity you would experience. Come with me for a moment, above the clouds. Look down on humanity with me, a peripheral view of mankind. Can you hear the prayers, the ones that actually get past the clouds? (Lam. 3:44)

Do you hear the one they pray the most? "Talk to me Yahweh." Yes, that one.

How can this be, I ask you? My word is my voice. My Son is my voice. My voice is written from Genesis to Revelation. The problem you incur, is not whether or not I have spoken, it is the time you spend making sure you are hearing correctly. Such little time you give me.

Have I not told you that the wise man rises before the birds to seek my face? Why do you throw me in the middle of your plans, pick the verses that fit your agenda, and then fall into despair when none of it manifests? Am I your play toy? Am I not the one who delights in disciplining my sons? (Deuteronomy 8:5)

My voice is all around you; have I not written so? Silence is what manifests my words! Not in the chaos. Not in the fire. Not in the flesh. My still, small voice.

Like a sleeping baby in my arms, I whisper to you, my beloved, "Come away with me. Come away with me. Come away with me."

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr

4. First Hand

Oh yes Father. You have heard my cry. You understand my form and structure, for it is Your design. I have reached the end of the self that I knew. I must begin, rebirth, anew.

No longer can I live by what was done for Abraham. I cannot survive from the works done for Daniel. It is not enough to read of David and all the wondrous works done on his behalf. No my Father, I must confess, it is not enough.

I have partaken of this third party experience for far too long. Forgive me for not realizing. Forgive me for depending on what you did for others, as if your power where not for me. Forgive me for not crying out for the first hand experience I now cry for; I long to know why you created me Father.

I understand I have been given examples before my time, the lives of faith filled men. (Hebrews 11) Now is my time Father; one-on-one is my desire. Your resurrection power is not just for others, but also for me. Not only reading about it, but also living in it. I cannot go on apart from this.

Forgive me Father, for waiting so long to say, “Paul cannot save me. Joseph only makes me desire to experience what he did. But, I am not Joseph, I am me.”

First hand experience Father. Yes, for Your glory, but also for my journey, the one You made me. I am not a wasted creation, living off the faith of men past. I am alive. I am new. I am Your representation on the earth.

Write my story for all to see Father. This story of this other son of Yours, created for glory. No more third parties Father. Me and You, in

Michael David Beiter Jr.

5. Stepping Over

Will I always just be hanging on Father, like a man gritting his teeth, waiting for a final decision?

If I am victorious in Yahshua (Jesus) Messiah,why do I feel as if I am falling, hoping Your hands are there?

Why must I even be heading down, when Your abode is up Father?

If You have left Your peace with me, then why am I still searching for it?

Have I not desired and prayed for Your presence in the broken places? Have I not constantly given my will over to You, and pressed in hard not to take it back? Father, will it always be like this?

You say to rest in You. Why do I struggle for that rest? Father, where is my peace that passes understanding? (Phil 4:7) Where is my victory before the battle has even begun? Where is Your voice, saying, "Go, for I have given them into your hands."?

Please my Father, I beg of You, a greater portion, that I might rejoice only, with laughter. Even as death stares me in the face, may I see what You see for me?

Father, not a constant crying out for peace, but the peace itself. I surrender to You, minute-by-minute, even the unwilling parts. Take them anyway. I need Your peace and joy now Father.

You tell me its mine, please show me how to turn the key and walk into it. Come perfector. (Hebrews 12:2)

As deep cries to deep, Come!

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

6. No Enemies

"When a man's ways please Yahweh, He will make even his enemies at peace with him." (Proverbs 16:7)

Take on the mind of a child. If you have children, ask them, right now, to read the Scripture above.

Now ask them this question: How will you know if your ways are pleasing to Yahweh? (With or without a child present, you know the answer.)

Yes. A litmus test indeed. A goal. A pursuit. Living at peace with all men is what I have asked of you. Having your enemies at peace with you is what you desire.

I have no enemies; a clue for you. I have no enemies! Hate me if you will but, I AM. Though one may hate me, I cause the sun to shine. I feed all men. I own all men. You see, I have no enemies.

"Greater things shall you do than even I," (John 14:12) is what my Son said to you. This is what gives you permission to love your enemy. Woe to the man who convinces himself otherwise.

Your strength makes not the enemy flee. Your obedience does. You love, I remove. An unshakeable pattern I have created. You praise me, I remove. You endure, I remove. You submit to me, I remove. Is it not in your personal worship services that you so fervently sing aloud, "The battle belongs to [Me]?" We are progressing. You are seeing the patterns. You will adhere to them and you will find they work every time.

In this, springs of life shall form in you and flow through you. Yes, you will say, "It was so easy," once you apply My ways to your every day.

Enjoy My ways as they are created just for you. Do these things and your enemies shall cease.

You have My word.

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

7. Dwelling

Forget the former things, do not dwell on the past; see I am doing a new thing. Isaiah 43:18

Oh my dear ones, we have been here before…

Yes, I am tender, My chastisement itself, tender. I do not destroy; I only build up. (Psalm 78:38)

I am aware of the prison in your mind: guilt, shame, and worthlessness. May I encounter you? May I take away the shackles in your mind? Can we dance together? (Romans 5:17)

Mature sons and daughters is what I desire. Put aside emotion and listen to My voice. If I tell you I am doing something new with you, I AM. All of your pain, all of your mistakes, all of your disobedience, I use these things.

Did I not leave the flesh to war with the spirit? Could I not have made you entirely a spirit being, like My mighty malak (angels)? Know Me. It is My plan that you battle for righteousness. I live inside your choices. I offer you your choices. The choice itself is Mine, My design.

Release it to me My beloved. My "do not," means just that. Are My mercies not new every day? Even now, your dwelling on painful memories is in My care, yet you release not. Either My Son's blood covered it all, or it did not. Do you believe Me? This is where the issue is revealed.

Do you believe Me?

I don't mind your regret, for it leads you to repentance. Your crippled state, however, is of yourself only. Do not go past regret. I have not asked for any more from you. This is your work, not Mine.

I am one who sets free. I have no prisoners in My family.

Can you hear My voice? Release. Release. Release.

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

8. Faith by Hearing

"So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." (Romans 10:17)

 

How can you trust if you know not what I have said? How can you rely on promises when you know them not?

 

I speak to you as a child, for a child would understand My simple principles. Liken My commands to a chore list. My promises are the rewards. In order to receive the rewards, you must first know your chores, and you must then do them.

 

Do you see My plan? I have made it so that My words, alive and active, are your path to obedience and blessing.

 

I understand you. As I said, My words are alive and active. Your heart (mind) wants only to receive the promises. Find them. In doing so, it will spur you on to obedience.

 

Yes, I entice. I am He who creates your desire. It is my heart (mind) in you. I know what it takes to elevate your relationship to Me. I, and My Son, have many revelations for you. My ways are layered deep and are directly revealed according to your effort. Do not think My words will read the same to you next month or next year. Precept upon precept, I will grow you up. Your job is the effort. Has My gift of salvation (a saved mind) not enticed you enough?

 

My words build faith. There is no other way. Do what you must, for the days are short. I know this will help. I love you. I want you to know Me. I want you to increase your faith and therefore increase your blessing.

 

Come.

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

9. False Peace

Your little carnal comforts, they seem to make you smile.

Check it out, smell the leather,

let's drive it for a while.

The plush landscape, rolling hills,

Five thousand square feet under air!

Pop the bottle, twist the cap,

we haven't got a care…

 

I am He who gives and takes away. (Job 1:21)

Dare you attempt to find peace in another. Dare you try to find peace in objects. I know what you dream about. I know what brings you "peace."

I have asked for denial of self. You have indulged. How long do you think your objects can compete with My contagious touch?

You desire a full account. I see you check the numbers often. I too like accounting. My Son's blood was a hefty price, and He has debtors. Do not misunderstand My child, your salvation was free. It is your new life of which I speak.

May I ask you how much his death is worth to you? He is watching, here with Me, at My right hand, seated high above all things. (Colossians 2:15)

He has asked Me to relay a message to you. He says, "I see everything that pleases your heart more than the thought of Me. I see all of your objects of worship. I weep for you."

We have things for you to enjoy. There will be proper order to your worship. Your false peace, soon to be revealed to you.

We must. We have promised to finish Our work in you. (Philippians 1:6)

If it helps, I gave you My word. Read what my servant Matthew relayed to you in his book:

Chapter Six verse Thirty-Three

This cannot be reversed. This is the way. Walk in it.

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

10. One Down

"He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it." (Matt 10:39)

How do I die and yet hope Father? How does one give You everything: faith, family, freedom, career?

My wife, Father. Is she to lay alone, and that be the abundant life You have promised us?

My children, Father. Am I to believe they could be fatherless, without my daily presence, and yet have joy?

I am stuck Yahshua (Jesus), and I cry from the deepest places, for Your hand. I don't know how. I can't. I won't. I. I love them. I love them with Your love, love that never fails. They are my trace of goodness on the earth. How do I lose my life? I lack. I don't know how. I can't. I won't. I. Can you hear the depths of this spirit of mine crying out to You? It could demolish cities. All I am cries out. I can't. I must. I.

Desolate is this place. Caught between the death that must come and the life You promise. I'm caught in the middle. Release, then grab. Grab the unknown my spirit says. My flesh holds both sides. If there where ever a task I could not bare. Take over Yahshua. I can't. I must. I.

This is my death. Either way, now faced with this, I die. Give into the flesh, die. Give into the spirit, die. What will be left Father?

You have found your little boy again. The man I was, is gone. Abba Father, I beg for your help. Help Daddy. Help.

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

11. Foolish Men

Stay away from a foolish man, for you will not find knowledge on his lips. (Proverbs 14:7)

Why, My child, do you pretend I have called you to your wasting of words? ,If your waxing wise were truly for My glory, you would succeed. How do I know this?, I am in the midst of all that brings Me glory! Have I not told you the mocker hates correction? (Proverbs 15:12) Why do you insist on casting pearls to pigs? I dare say that if it were truly My kingdom you were trying to advance, you would not lose your joy or composure in the midst of your endeavor.

I have watched my children use My spirit as if truly prompted by Me. These heated debates over spiritual matters, and all with those who cannot see, for I have not removed the veil over their eyes. I am nowhere near these matters, other than to take note of your errors. Yes, there are things to be taken by force in the Spirit; however, it must align with My will. How can I tell you to stay away from foolish men, and then have you believe you should go and pursue foolish men? Who is in error here?

I know my child. It is painful to reconcile with the reality that most of your work might have been in vain. It is better to know now, than waste more time, is it not? Rejoice in this alone, as humility is the only trait that will allow you to hear what I am saying. I do appreciate your humble heart and I want to bless you for this. Remember, it is the plan of the wicked one to convince you that arguing with his minions over spiritual matters is going to bear fruit.

Ask Me who I have called unto Me and I will tell you. Otherwise, I say "No!"

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

12. Who's Judging Whom?

Oh, My children. How it kindles My anger when you misuse My words for your advantage. If you would only judge yourselves, your contention would not exist. It is the weak child who misunderstands a rebuke done in love. Have I not given you permission to tend to one another? (1 Cor. 5:12-13) Have I not allowed for the expulsion of one who calls himself a brother, yet disavows all good counsel? Is such a man not to be removed

A brief explanation will suffice, as it is only a layer of pride that must be removed, in order to differentiate between a rebuke done in love and one in judgment. A rebuke, My child, is always to be done in love and is to benefit you and the body. It is Divine correction, if you will, and all of My people need it.

Judgment, as you label it, involves condemnation. None of Mine suffer such things from Me. (Romans 8:1, 1 Cor. 4:3-5) I have only appointed that which is for your good.

I have noticed that many of My sheep tend to call open rebukes "judgments." This particular error, increasing particularly when ones "self" is being rebuked. I will not let you get away with it. A wise man heeds rebukes and it brings life to his soul. (Prov. 13:10) A fool scoffs at a proper rebuke, calling it "judgment." I will not only discipline the folly of such, but I will also accuse him of judging himself. When you claim someone is judging you, when they have not done or intended to do so, it is a sin unto you.

Take the rebuke My child; humility is My way. It is how I shall prosper you.

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

13. God of the Carnal Mind

Hebrews 12:2-9

Looking unto Yahshua, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of Yahweh.

For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin. And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons:

"My son, do not despise the chastening of the Yahweh, Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him; For whom the Yahweh loves He chastens, And scourges every son whom He receives."

If you endure chastening, Yahweh deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons.

Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live?

You think I can't provide? You must, for I see you seeking the god of the lesser things. I speak to you as adult, though I have asked you to be like a child. Your punishment for your disobedience will be according to your age. A light spanking will not suffice. My warnings have been numerous and My anger has been aroused.

I will be with you while I chastise you, and I encourage you to be cautious in your prayers. My rod has already swung. You will not escape this time of growth. Perhaps you will now obey and return in true repentance. I know your thoughts. I know what is true about you and what isn't. If your own carnality has overtaken your ability to see clearly, ask My Son for help. Whatever hinders you has been handled within His resurrection. You can participate during this time; either way, the path will be made level.

I told you I would finish the work I began in you. (Hebrews 12:2)

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

14. Roosters Crow

Every time you doubt Me, a rooster crows. Every time you're angry, a rooster crows. Every time you sin, a rooster crows. Your very denial at this moment, a rooster crows.

Is there another plan, a way to prosper outside of My will? Strife, a rooster crows. Bitterness, a rooster crows. Anxiety, a rooster crows. Unforgiveness, a rooster crows. The emotions and mindsets you carry, all say one thing to me. Yes, just one thing. You don't accept My Son as savior.

Have I not seated Him at My right hand, over all authorities? (Mat. 26:64) Do I remove the veil to My throne to just anyone?

Listen carefully, My child; when you live in anything but the pure life I have given you through My Son, you deny My Son. Yes, just like Peter, others see your denial as it is manifested in many ways. Your life speaks to all who watch. You preach of My Son and the salvation He freely offers to all, yet, you are bound, and roosters crow all around you.

East to West, My beloved. That is how far all of your pain has been removed. (Psalm 103:12)

There's nothing to earn. Receive the gift. My Son's resurrection was your resurrection. Live as the new creation, He made you and hand all of your roosters to Him. Have I not told you that you are My treasured people above all people? I have given you the right to live abundantly.

Do you love Me? Do you love Me? Do you love Me?

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

15. If But Your Garment

Father, Your word says that Yahshua (Jesus) is the author and perfector of my faith. (Hebrews 12:2)

This faith You gave me in measure, with the ability for that measure to grow. (2 Pet 3:18)

Oh Father, I have sought You with tears, yet I remain locked in this prison of my mind. Without ceasing, I hand You that which has crippled me mentally, and ask the perfector to redesign my thinking. Transform atoms and cells Yahshua, that I might see and not just hear. (Job 42:5)

I am only left to believe that, for some reason, I am holding onto these thoughts that keep me bound. I keep handing these things to You, yet they remain. Has the prison of my mind actually become a safe place for me? Like a child with a blanket of his youth, am I comforted by my prisons, afraid to let go?

I, of your sound mind, give You permission to take these blankets of fear I hold on to and replace them with the hem of Your garment. Change me anyway. Break through the false comfort and redeem this child frozen in time. I cannot return to the places of old. It is my time to bud on the vine or die.

Bring the living water (John 7:38) and set anew this mind of mine. And Father, may I bring this supplication to You and trust? As You remove the blankets of fear, I may still hold them tight. Take them anyway. Please.

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

16. Lips for Bulls

I will not take a bull from your house, nor goats out of your folds. For every beast of the forest is Mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. I know all the birds of the mountains, and the wild beasts of the field are Mine. "If I were hungry, I would not tell you; for the world is Mine, and all its fullness. Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats? Offer to Yahweh thanksgiving, and pay your vows to the Most High. Psalm 50:9-14

So much effort, My child. So much struggling in vain. Who asked this of you?

Is My love to be earned by your sacrifices of fear? Do you think your striving is what draws Me near? Listen to me My child. My Son settled the score. The debt has been paid. Your fear-driven sacrifice will never get it done. That's why He came and died.

I am not like an earthly father who seeks to be respected, yet sins himself. My way is perfect, and I have perfectly forgiven you. Yes, I seek to be obeyed; however, it is in obeying me that you receive life abundantly. I am no taskmaster, and all of my requirements bring life. There is no selfishness in my desire to be honored and glorified by you.

Remember, I AM your creator. The blueprint is Mine. The way to peace and joy cannot be altered by your misappropriation.

Yes, my child, you did not know these things, yet repentance is still required. My words teach you to worship and work, and instead you just work.

The only sacrifice I desire from you is the sacrifice of praise, which brings about complete obedience in your life. I have given you the rules; your path to blessings. No longer be deceived into thinking the bulls you are slaughtering are pleasing to me. A sacrifice of praise from your lips is what I desire.

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

17. We Don't Trust You

Every thought, every desire, every act, everything that does not conform to the will of the Father can be contained in a simple statement. "I don't trust you Yahweh."

How can that be you ask? It is very simple; the children understand. Whenever you decide to go your own way, contrary to the Father's way, you are saying that your way is a better way than your Creator's.

Even more prevalent, it establishes an undeniable verdict that you don't care what He says. Sin is always defined inside of these mindsets, mindsets that prove out your lack of trust in Him.

If you could go forward in time and see what the Father has planned for you, certainly you would not choose any of the courses (mindsets) mentioned above. You would not alter His course. Every sin does just that. It alters the speedy and bountiful result that He has planned for you. Yes, for those who believe, there is mercy and grace through Yahshua (Jesus) Messiah, however, you can choose the forty-year journey for what should really take eleven days.

Repent I say. Realize that anything other then complete trust in the will of the Father alone is a lack of trust, sin in itself. Sin always leads to trouble and extends your journey to the place you so desire. Take time to seek his face (Matthew 6:33) and He will always reveal His perfect plan for your life. Yes, you may have to go in faith, not seeing the end result; however, your obedience alone is going to be rewarded. A double blessing you might say.

He is not like a man that He should lie to you (Numbers 23:19). His hope and future is what you where created for. The desires you have towards the good things of life are directly attached to your ability to trust that He will supply them. This plan cannot change. Only your heart can.

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

18. Never a Robot

Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one's slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? Romans 6:16

A quaint conversation previously commenced midway through:

Church folk 1: Well, I do have free will. I can make my own decisions, like choosing Jesus.

Church folk 2: Hmm. The bible says, "He chose you."

Church folk 1: Yes, but that's because He knew I would choose Him.

Church folk 2: Where does it say that in the Bible?

Church folk 1: Well, I'll have to look, or ask my pastor.

Church folk 2: I am positive it does not say that in the Bible or anything like that. As a matter of fact, it says you where chosen before the foundations of the world, (Psalm 90:2) even in your mothers womb. (Psalm 22:10) So are you saying He predestined all of this based upon what you would do?

Church folk 1: Well. Yes. Right?

Church folk 2: The Bible says the carnal man is at enmity towards Him (Romans 8:7) and that we all fall short of His glory. (Romans 3:23) So how do we then believe we get holy enough to choose Him?

Church folk 1: Well, I did ask Him into my heart. I remember the day like it was yesterday.

Church folk 2: I believe you. Was that before or after He gave you a new heart? (Deut. 30:6)

Church folk 1: Well, I guess after.

Church folk 2: So then, did you ask for the new heart or was it His doing?

Church folk 1: No, it was His doing.

Church folk 2: So then, the heart He gave you is what prompted your choice to believe, right?

Church folk 1: Well, I guess so, but I'm not a robot you know.

19. Broken Cisterns

My people have committed two sins. They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and they have dug there own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water. Jeremiah 2:13

"Am I not I AM?" who points out transgressions in order to save you? "Am I not I AM?" who sent My Son so that you might perhaps have the chance to return to Me in repentance?

Consider this before you so easily entangle yourself with the world's delicacies: My Son was sent to manifest My desire to redeem a people unto Myself, a desire mixed with my power. It is only by this power that you might easily overcome your disobedient choices to continually eat from My forbidden tree.

Stop. Listen. Think. It is I who brought you back. It is I who chose you. Are you really so dull of mind to think you can fill your own cisterns with the abundant things you long for? Who do you think breaks anything that does not align with My will? The vessels I fill have no lack and seek not for more. I will not be housed in unclean vessels. Dry bones (Ezekiel 37) are what your reward will be apart from Me. How joyful you where the day I found you. Now, you must count the cost of every thought and action; this is what I require from My children.

My seal upon your life brings both life and death. I prefer you choose life. (Deut. 30:19)

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

20. Two of You

Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does. James 1:21-25

It is in love that I come to both of you. Yes, although you are both one being, your heart is certainly divided. You have lost your innocence with Me, as I have watched you, and I see both faces. A secret for you to now know is that My mature ones can see them both as well. They can spot you in a heartbeat and will not be preyed upon like my younger sheep. Another secret? I am a fierce shepherd and will not excuse the fleecing of My flock, especially My young ones.

Woe to you who praise Me before the multitudes and then steal from My people. Woe to you who use Me to market your goods and increase the scales in your favor. Woe to you who use your "righteousness" to ravish My elect.

Who told you My punishment is immediate? Who told you that My rod only manifests in ways you can perceive? Did you not believe when I told you, I quote, "It is a fearful thing, to fall into My hands." (Hebrews 10:30-31)

Yes, I do desire mercy over judgment; however, I judge every wrong, as this is what I promised My son. I will not shame His sacrifice as if I where a man. Let it never be said, as it would be sinful to do so, that I did not warn you. My chastening is perfect and well-deserved. When My right arm moves against you, it will correct your wrongs. Will you not repent and return to Me before then?

21. A Little Leaven

Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall remove leaven from your houses. For whoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that person shall be cut off from Israel. (Exodus 12:15)

22. Heart Threads

Imagine, My child, if I, Myself, behaved as you do towards each other.

You once persuaded many souls that I had brought your union together, and now you look to find any who will agree to your separation. I tell you the truth My child, though you believe you are justified before Me, I condone not your recent desires.

Shall I turn on you and withhold My love, My very own Son's love, when you fail Me? Have I not taught you the wickedness of your own heart is what killed My Son? Are you not like the wicked man who demands an obligation be paid to you, when you yourself where forgiven many debts? (Matthew 18:23-35)

Cease and repent, for you have My word that you yourself are not innocent in the matters that plague you. My love penetrates even the most violent of hearts and I will not bless your lack of humility. My love is a consuming fire and I will no longer tolerate your misuse of My words, harming the one I gave you.

You cry for the love you believe you deserve while failing to love the undeserving. Love never fails and My "never" means never! Go to your quiet place and speak to Me and tell me you understand and know I only speak the truth to you. Tears of repentance are what I desire, true repentance. (Psalm 51:17, contrite spirit, not despised)

Come, and I will fill you with a love that cannot be concealed or kept back from the one who is harming you. It is in this exchange that you will then have no choice but to love the one who now wounds you. The one I gave you for life.

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

23. Who Made These Things?

Love? Peace? Joy? Contentment? Desire? Humility? Tenderness? Feelings? Spirit things? Emotions? States of being?

Yes, My child, ask yourself, what are these things that your soul longs for? They are Mine. Each one created to entice My children to enter My domain and be as I am. Dare you think you can gain access to any of the above apart from Me? Am I so loose as to let anyone partake? No, My child. These things are only for My children and obedience is the key that releases them to you.

Can a wicked man enjoy peace? Never. I will not allow that man to understand My concept named peace. Can an adulteress have love? Never. I will not allow her longing to be fulfilled by My most precious concept called love. Can a greedy man know contentment? I dare say not. Only the one who prospers through and by Me will know My concept called contentment. Can a harsh woman know tenderness? My tenderness is for the contrite only, and yes, my contriteness is only for My obedient children.

You my child are truly blessed, as the one who knows Me not will never ascertain that My pattern of emotions, blessed emotions, are only for My children. My son has opened the door that you might attain them all. The rest is up to you.

Do you need help? Ask and you shall receive.

For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. (Luke 11:10)

24. I'm a Jew

I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles. Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness! (Romans 11:11-12)

Your testament that makes you zealous, It says your goal:  Make us Jews jealous.

You tell me you have Scriptural truth, And yet, you rename our Messiah, "Hey Zeus!"

If that's not enough, let's look at your Sabbath, Pick a day, any day, that's what you would have for us.

Have you studied the history of your festivals and celebrations? Filled with traditions, from demons and pagans.

Some of us sense some things are missing, But you sell your savior like a marketable plaything.

I am a Jew; I wait for Yashua Messiah, How can I trust, to Him you will guide us?

Perhaps you'll consider listening to me, I have things to offer, a rich history.

Does your own book teach that you were sent, Saul? Transformed by your Jesus and renamed "Paul".

Why send the premier Jew to your people, Teaching weekly in synagogues, not churches with steeples?

I am a Jew; our Temple destroyed, our sacrifices cease, I have watched some of you, I've seen the peace.

I could believe, based upon what I've seen, The one called Messiah is your savior and King.

Perhaps I'll look past you and see if it pays, And make Him my savior, and keep my Jewish ways.

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

25. Burdened with Blessings

Have I not given you ample opportunity to be blessed My child? Have I not made it so that the blessings are bountiful and filled with new opportunities? It is your fleshly desires (Col. 2:18) that warrant the opposite of My blessings.

My heart is to bless; this is why the curses exist. I know my creation well, and to entice you with blessings is not enough. There must be consequences to your disobedience, as you naturally stray from My will (Romans 8:7).

I tell you these things so you understand that I have burdened you with blessings on every side, and the curses are there only to keep you on the narrow path that leads to life, and therefore are blessings themselves. Do you understand My plan? Can you see how, like an eagle with her young, I protect you and intend to prosper you for My covenants' sake?

Now that you acknowledge My goodness towards you, can you be mature in your faith towards me? Your willful sins are truly a burden to Me, for what Father wants to continually chasten a child created for love? The mature faith understands that my blessings come to you through obedience, and obedience is not optional. My commands are specifically that, commands!

Why do My children take the risk of believing the curses cannot kill? Please remember, My child, that I do not perceive death as you do, and I do not live in limitations of time like you. The death of My chosen ones is not as grievous for Me as it is you (Isaiah 57:1-2).

My blessings come through obedience and praise, and they are designed to appeal to the dreams I have placed in your heart. Each blessing will reveal the perfect plan for your life individually, and then extend to My entire body. Mature, My child, for the time is short, and your joy depends on it.

26. Every Day is a Journey into Faith

I worship nonstop and I endure. It's all about His will for me and, yes, the unknown of that is mysterious and sometimes, very minimally, overwhelming. I am learning to trust more every day and am comforted by that fact.

Yahweh knows the truth of all this, you know. As for the praise towards "them" who harm me, it is a key to the kingdom, worshipping through pain.

It is what He's looking for, I am quite sure.

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

27. Heel Marks in the Sand

"It was then that I dragged you, My child!"

Stop trying to "feel" your way into My Kingdom, for it is not a Kingdom of feeling, but rather a Kingdom of knowing. I'll say it with words that may sting a bit, but the sting is Mine: My Kingdom is Hebraic, not Greek. My Kingdom is Divine truth, not philosophical theory. My Kingdom is of the mind, not the fluttering heart.

You have set yourself up beloved. Your faith walk has become one built on a shaky foundation; sinking sand if I must, depending on "What your heart told you," when I have declared that your heart was, "wicked above all things!" (Jeremiah 17:9)

You oppose the truth, which is that, in the Garden I gave only commands, and yet you talk of your "free will." When did I give you a choice about which tree was 'yes' and which tree was 'no'? Where does it say, "Only if you think it's best"?

Your salvation is NOT a walk along the beach wherein I carry you in the rough times; My son said, "It is finished!" It's high time you learn to pick up your own stake and prove that you love Me. Have I not said that those who love Me, "keep My commands"? (John 14:15) I have yet to see it written that this is of your choosing. Can you declare that you love Me and not keep My commands? Tell Me if it's so.

Listen to Me, beloved. If all of your choices, yes ALL of your choices apart from my intervention, caused you to fall, then what part of your choices seem "free' to you?

You're starting to see it, no? If not, it was then that I dragged you.

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

28. Peace on Every Side

Listen to My voice; I know it will sooth your spirit, for this is what I planned.

What desire have I put in you, what passion for My will? Do not try to escape your longing for Us, for it is inescapable. You cannot run from what you long for.

Although you may backslide, you will return, as We are not to be resisted. ( Romans 9:19) The dream you and I share for your life, is My dream, created especially and specifically for you. (Psalm 21:2) Remember how I told you about your servitude to evil (Luke 16:13); it is My son who has redeemed you and forever changed your future. It is this very resistance you seem to find comfortable that murdered My son. You must accept the fact that even now, left to you, you would murder again. Your sinfulness is My evidence.

Give in to Us my child for the desire We share for you is that you have peace on every side. Like the lion that already lies with the lamb (Isaiah 11:6), have I not already laid a peaceful path for you to walk in?

Am I like a man that I should lie to you? I am One whose promises can be tested and all My ways are perfect and made known to you. I am the one who never fails you.

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

29. I'll Use It

For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. (Psalm 139:13)

Yes, My child, I designed you as a vessel to both create and receive love, for love is the very thing that defines us. I was with you before the foundations of earth and I knew your childhood then. I saw the pain and the disappointment and this too was My plan. I need you to remember what you have been taught.

Have I not defined love for you (1 Cor. 13:4-8)? I need, or rather, respectfully demand that you to grasp that just as your earthly family created their own definition of love, so you have done. My definition, the only true definition, describes in detail what love is. It is My emotion, My intimately designed concept.

I do not give My children, nor anyone, permission to create any other definition of love. Have I not told you that LOVE NEVER FAILS? The pain you choose to carry is just that, a choice. For just as others have failed you, you have failed others.

Fear not, my child, for I have created a new heart in you, and I have given you the capacity to love as I have loved. Did My son not tell you it was completed? Was not the veil to My throne torn in two, granting you access to My Kingdom of love? You fail to love like Me, because you fail to forgive like Me.

First, forgive yourself for defining love by your own skewed standards, and then forgive others for doing the same. It is in this place that I will heal you.

Remember, I love you and I have created you to love like Me, for My glory. I will use your pain and redeem you as a choice vessel for My honor. Give in to me.

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

30. What Our Father Would Say

Your only true concern in life should be whether or not you fail Me.

When your schedule is arranged in advance, there is no room in your life for Me to guide you to My highest and best. Cast aside even consideration for others, and the fear of Me disappointing them. This anxiety about disappointing others is not based on fact, but on supposition.

Can you not trust Me? Would I ever fail you? How about them? Shall I not move to protect and provide for those you commit into My hand for My care during your days of solitude?

Hebrews 5:8 "Though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered."

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

31. Define Believe

Spirit man: Romans 10:11 "For the Scripture says, 'Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.'"

Carnal man: But I see Yahweh's people put to shame all the time.

Spirit man: As the Scripture says: "Anyone who trusts in Him (Yahshua/Jesus) will never be put to shame."

Carnal man: I don't get it. Maybe I should pray and seek wisdom.

Spirit man: Yes, wisdom is here, it is carried in His vessels. Please define "trust" for me?

Carnal man: I can't.

Spirit man: May I take over then?

Carnal man: I guess.

Spirit man: Thank you. To trust Yahshua is to leave behind your own agenda, and defer to His will at all times (Proverbs 14:12, there is a way that seems right to a man). Faith is the evidence of the unseen (Hebrews 11:1), so you must learn to believe in what you do not understand and cannot see, all the while, trusting you will not be put to shame. In order to reach the fullness of what the Father and Son have planned for your life, you must step into the unknown like a child, knowing the Father will catch you if you fall. Give in and let the work of the stake have its way in you. Either way, you will have to at some point. (Daniel 9:24, I shall finish my work) Start trusting now and receive your reward.

Carnal man: Can I just watch?

Spirit man: I expected no less.

32. Handed Over

1 Corinthians 4:3-5 "But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you or by a human court. In fact, I do not even judge myself. For I know of nothing against myself, yet I am not justified by this; but He who judges me is the Lord. Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each one's praise will come from God."

How quickly you handed me over, Not even a question asked.   "If they have him, he must have done something," Your words like a noose on my heart.   Did you know my captors are scandalous? Not a drop of his blood in their hearts.   They knew your brothers would abandon me, The enemy cunning for his part.   Seek, kill and destroy is their motto, I refused to believe you'd agree.   How quickly you handed me over, Now, with new eyes do I see.

Did We not tell you, child, to trust no man? (Jeremiah 17:5) Yes, it is true, for they abandoned Us as well. We leave you this key to Our Kingdom; love them anyway.

You ask yourself how I and My Father forgave all of you murderers. We forgave you because "I AM" is love! Our love requires nothing in return you see. It is part of Our plan, loving the loveless, and who can resist it? You must forgive, for you too, have betrayed your brothers. Because We have first loved you, there is an expectation; a choice, a choice that We alone have given to you as a gift, and We want Our children to understand it. We do not need you to believe you owe Us something; We merely want you to understand your own heart. The heart My Father and I gladly changed. You see, your carnal heart was removed by My Father, as it was that heart that rejected and despised Our love.

My child, did not My Father take out that heart of stone? All that We ask of you is to appreciate the new heart We gave you and use it as We have directed. We have told you to go and use Our heart to love the loveless, for this is a key to Our Kingdom.

33. I See Grapes

It is a good land I have given you; you must go and posses it.

I know who the Amorites and Anakites in your life are. It is I who will defeat them.

Fear not, and do not be so easily persuaded to be disobedient to what I have told you to do. Do not hesitate one more moment, for My anger is a consuming fire.

Did I not tell you that your weapons are not carnal (2 Cor. 10:4) and that your own might and power is not what is needed? (1 Cor. 2:5). If I tell you to go, you must!

I have prepared a place for you, a land flowing with milk and honey, and I travel by the clouds of internal mystique, and by the fire of Divine judgment, protecting you along the way. None can touch you apart from My will, and you are children of the covenant, and My faithfulness is My word.

I will not fail you; now do your part.

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

34. Today

This will help you beloved. Yahweh has already told you that the unredeemed "carnal mind" will always, yes always, be at enmity with His Divine mind.

"So if the carnal mind will never perceive His mind, how can I rejoice?" This is a brilliant question from a renewed mind on its way to the realization that it need not identify with the carnal mind. How? The way is to decrease.

"Yahweh, if it is not by my own intellectual understanding and might then I can rejoice, as I hear You say my "self" will always be at enmity as long as I wish to "increase".

"Father, allow me to decrease and may Your Spirit praise and rejoice for me." This is the kind of thought that travels throughout the conscience of the truly redeemed. Yahweh spends His entire Torah, and accompanying Scriptures, telling us how we must "lose" ourselves, and yet words like, "I believe" are spewed out without any hesitancy. Is it so hard for you to settle into the idea that it is, "Messiah in you" that will rejoice and be glad, or must you continuously admit your inability, only to turn and say things which resound of the self?

So what of the redeemed mind? Can it praise and rejoice? Why yes, of course! It is the mind that has been completely taken over by the Spirit, and no longer has consciousness of sin (self). (Hebrews 9:14)

How much more shall the blood of Messiah, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to Yahweh, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living Elohim? For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against Yahweh; for it is not subject to the law of Yahweh, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please Yahweh. But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of Yahweh dwells in you. (Romans 8:5-9)

This is the day Yahweh has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Authors Translation: This is the day Yahweh has made; you have no choice, be glad in it.

35. What???

Church member 1: We shouldn't argue!

Church member 2: Of course not and we won't, lets be Bereans and figure out the truth. (Acts 17:10-11)

Church member 1: Well I feel like it's an argument.

Church member 2: OK. What can I do to make sure you do not feel that way and still continue this discussion? I know you know there can only be one answer so we can't both be right and perhaps we are both wrong. Let's find out so we can both honor Yahweh, OK?

Church member 1: No! I'm not going to fight with you about this.

Church member 2: OK. So what can I do to assure you a fight is the farthest thing from my mind, and that I have nothing but love and admiration for you?

Church member 1: Jesus is love and that's all that matters.

Church member 2: I agree Jesus is love and His love prompts and actually commands that we are to keep His ways and that's why we should talk. I would like us to make sure we are following His ways as He commanded. If one of us is incorrect, then we can change that by seeking His word and making sure, together, we are on the right path. As iron sharpens iron, right? (Proverbs 27:17)

Church member 1: I'm not gonna debate this right now. Jesus is love and that's all that matters. That's what my pastor said.

Church member 2: Hmmm…..

36. The Kingdom of Yahweh

"For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of Yahweh." (Romans 8:19)

Throughout the years, I have asked individuals and groups alike, what they believe the Kingdom of Yahweh is. I have heard every answer imaginable, yet none seem to be unified as a whole. This simple disagreement among the body is enough to prove we need to have an earnest expectation, as it is what the spirit in us needs to be complete, fulfilled, if you will.

Matthew 6:33 states, "Seek first the Kingdom of Yahweh and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you." It is the opinion of the author that a verse such as this encompasses the entirety of what the Spirit in us longs to do. It is what humans are looking for. If there was ever a verse that has the potential to fulfill all of your dreams, while you are also satisfying your calling to bring glory to the Father, then this is the verse.

Can you fathom the idea that, "If I simply spend my time, seeking Yahweh, to know Him and adore Him, then like any good father, He will provide everything that has been appointed to me?"

"Appointed?" That's correct; He has predetermined blessings and provision for those that actually follow the Divine pattern of seeking Him. To know Him and to love Him and His will more than any other thing is the way, the truth, and the life for those brave enough to live it. To know also that it by His power, and not our own might, furthers the beauty even more.

I seek Him by His power, and then I am blessed for doing what only He and His Son could enable me to do.

Stop and think beloved. Think about what this say's about the sovereignty of I AM!

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

37. Worthy of Me

"Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to 'set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother in-law'; and 'a man's enemies will be those of his own household.' He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his stake and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it." (Matthew 10:34-39)

Why, My children, do you only emphasize the Scriptures that assume My grace is for everyone? Why do you choose to ignore the reality that My stake is the line in the sand for those who are Mine and those not worthy of Me?

Why do you insist on imposing My love upon everyone? Is it not the loss of your life for My sake that gains you favor?

What need do you have to convince yourself that I would do anything other than what I say? Will My love digress from My very own words; am I double minded in some way?

Will I accept a life not lost for Me?

You see, My child, I am not as concerned as you seem to be that all men are at peace when I, Myself, am peace. When I turn a son against His father for My name sake, My peace is intact, as it can be no other way.

The sum of thy word is truth (John 17:17). I respectfully demand, My children, a ceasing in your quest to only apply words that feel good, for the sake of your own comfort. My peace I leave with you; My sword for My adversaries.

I will not grant the imposition, The adding to My words. My words are your inquisition, And all men are at risk.

Your cups, bracelets and bumper stickers, Marketing Me to the masses. Line upon line, precept upon precept, My words never passing.

If I meant for "all" men to be saved, Then how could it other than be? I won't excuse your misappropriations, Guessing who I should be. If you are My sheep, then follow your Shepherd, And leave the wolves to Me.

 

by Michael David Beiter Jr.

38. Snake in Your Midst

Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? (2 Cor. 6:14)

Was I kidding? Does My word offer varying degrees of "Shall Not?"

Does My "shall not" mean, "Only once in a while thou shall not?" Only on weekends thou shall not? Only on Sabbath's and Holy days thou shall not? Only if you feel like it, thou shall not?

My will is to protect you My child, and to ensure your increase. The harmony I desire for your life is much more satisfying than what you have planned for yourself. Mine are known by their fruit (Hos 14:8, John 15:7-9) and the light I have put in you is easily diminished by the one who does not bear My seal, and you know not, what you cannot see.

Do not be deceived: "Evil company corrupts good habits." (1 Corinthians 15:33) There are other realms than the one you are accustomed to, and if I shared with you a glimpse of the principalities that war for your soul then you would understand my "Do Not." (Ephesians 6:12)

Trust Me my child; My "do not" is not open for discussion, and it is this very narrow path (Matt 7:14) that not only saves your soul, but gives you life abundant. (John 10:10)

39. The Potter's Hand

Why must you kick against the goads? Do you not realize: you are not alone?

As you struggle and strain to fulfill what you believe is His will, you automatically assume, "Jesus is with me." Yes, this is true, Yahshua is always with those who are chosen; perhaps the "not alone" refers to a much bigger role in your life, one which you have refused to see.

Yahweh is constantly crafting and molding vessels. You must not get caught in the trap that blinds you from recognizing that all you endeavor to do "in Him" is not always for Him, but is really more for yourself and others you are considering.

The Potter is always fulfilling His plans for the body, plans that consider far many more than you may be thinking about. Your failures and successes are being divinely crafted at the Potters wheel to effect the entire unified body; Israel!

As you yield to the effects of His molding hands, your pliable heart will soon understand that the Potter is always using His creation to fashion a beautifully crafted temple, with His son at the head.

&As water softens clay, allow the Spirit to perfectly shape you into all you need to become, for His purposes. Yield by His Spirit, or the yielding will be mandated by His Spirit. Is it not so much better to wait and hear His voice, than to assume and thwart His will?

There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end isthe way of death. (Proverbs 14:12)

40. Gathered in My Name

A group sits before Me convinced I am there; Gathered in My name. Someone's convinced them, My "there" means I'll answer; Gathered in My name. "He says he's leaving me," one says, then says, "I'm fine with that;" Gathered in My name. "I can't stand my job, my captain's so bossy;" Gathered in My name. "God can you help us, there's more than two here;" Gathered in My name. "We know you have more for us, please come and help us;" Gathered in My name. "We've been coming for months Lord, Your hand is not moving;" Gathered in My name. "Your word cannot lie Lord, what are You doing;" Gathered in My name.

 

 

FORTY YEARS OF DESERT WANDERING LATER

 

The group sits before Me, My Son and My Spirit; Gathering in My name. "Father we praise You, we worship and adore You;" Gathering in My name. "We know we must change Lord, our heart is to do so;" Gathering in My name. "Your magnificent glory is all we can think of';" Gathering in My name. "How foolish of us, to think gathering was for us." Gathering in My name. We thank you Abba, for the privilege to come here;" Gathering in My name. By your grace may we never forget why You made us." Gathering in My name. "And thank you our Father, as we praise You, You bless us;" Gathering in My name. "Now see it in us, that we never forget this;" Gathering in My name.

41. Traditions of Men

"Never again do you have our permission to walk off like that Yahshua." Mary was visibly shaken.

"I told you I was in My Fathers house, why is it that you don't understand?" Yahshua said.

"What did those teachers say to you? They never speak to your father, or any common man."

Yahshua fully knowing these things: "Mother, it is I who spoke. Did I not tell you I am always about my Father's business?"

Joseph kept silent. Mary, practically dragging Yahshua away: "Well what did you say to them son?"

"I was reading Jeremiah chapter ten, verses two through eight." This is what Yahweh says, "Do not learn the way of the heathen, and do not be deceived by the signs of heaven, though the heathen are deceived by them. For the customs of the people are vain; for one cuts a tree from the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the ax. They decorate it with silver and gold and fasten it with nails and hammers, so that it will not move. They are upright like a palm tree, but they cannot speak, they must be carried, because they cannot go. Do not give them reverence! They cannot do evil, nor can they do righteousness….but they are altogether senseless; as one, they are consumed by their foolishness; their stock is a doctrine of vanities." He smiled.

Mary, relaxing her grip on Him, "Oh yes, my child, we must stay far away from the traditions of men, at all cost. We will always be set apart in that way. The teachers you sat with have many of their own traditions you know?"

Yahshua again smiled. "Yes mother, I know. One at a time mother, one at a time."
