Built on the Principles of Living a Simple Life in Christ Jesus (Messiah Yahoshua)
There is a major shift taking place in our nation today. A shift of a nation that prospered because of its embracing of the Most High is now experiencing the aftermath of change, just as our current President has promised and delivered. Whether or not it is for the better remains to be seen, yet I don’t want you to think that I am politically for or against the current administration because quite frankly I believe the writing is already on the wall for America. I am not so much for change as I am for returning. Returning back to the biblical roots that have been eloquently written in the founding and governing documents of our nation, with only one significant difference, I desire to see it actualized, not just publicized. While the founding fathers of America had great intent I firmly believe and history bears it out that we have yet to find a time when the rights granted to all citizens have yet to be given to all citizens of this nation. While we teeter either to the liberal left or the conservative right there appears to never be a sustainable balance implemented in the actual walking out of these principles. Which brings me to this month’s topic, I think we need to re-equip ourselves with the freedom movement that Harriett Tubman, Martin L. King, and even earlier Moses instituted.
What do all three of these figures have in common? They were leaders of a people who were politically, physically, and economically oppressed by the existing infrastructure of their day. Moses chose to suffer with the children of God rather than to enjoy sin for a season.1 All three miraculously by the providential hand of God delivered their people from the bondage of Egypt, only to sadly after their demise have the Egypt that was in them bring them back into the state to which they were set free.
Just as in Egypt we have turned our back on our God, and as a result we are experiencing the advent of the Pharaoh who makes no claim of knowing Joseph.2 Joseph represents a time of plenty for Egypt. Egypt was world renown for its abundance during a time of lack. The claim to Egypt’s worldwide fame came only as a result of Joseph’s ability to interpret a dream that God had given the Pharaoh of that day. This scoop put Egypt on the map as the only nation at the time capable of stomping out world hunger. Howbeit, a nation that had experienced such a mighty deliverance could so swiftly change its direction? We are currently seeing such a shift take place before our very eyes within the walls of our country. We are seeing our homeland more and more turning its back on the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and concurrent with that experiencing the plagues that come as a result of that decision. No one has the answer to the dilemma because everyone who chooses to address the issue from a natural standpoint ignores the only answer to the issue. Returning back to the Creator who made us powerful to begin with is the only answer to the current crisis we face.
If it ain’t broke why fix it?
In our attempt to accommodate every culture that desires to embrace the “American Dream” we have lost the essential ingredient that is key to our success. Trying so hard to adapt others ideology we have twisted and perverted the foundation upon which we are built. That very foundation that even in the face of the injustice and ambiguity that misrepresented our founding documents true intent has been able to in latter times be relied upon to rightfully free a people who were wrongfully enslaved. The current flaw in our present ideology is a fundamental misunderstanding of what led to the injustices that were unduly placed on a large segment of America’s citizenry. The clear and obvious declaration of our founding fathers was built on correct premises that were encapsulated in the word of God. There is no doubt in my mind that they were inspired by God to put the words to the Declaration of Independence together. The meticulous and carefully penned words were rooted and grounded on biblical principles found within a Judeo-Christian ethic. No one should be allowed to become a citizen of this nation if they are unwilling to embrace the truth of the God that we declared allegiance to.
Even in Israel strangers were allowed to come into the land that was provided to them by Yah, but with the strict understanding that they were to abide by the same rules that governed Israel. They were subject to the God of the land. However, because the children of God didn’t holdfast themselves to the truth they subsequently begin to be taken over by their enemy. Their inability to recognize the enemy became their downfall in survival. Scripture makes it clear that we wrestle not with flesh and blood, but don’t get it twisted, we do wrestle with principalities in high places and doctrines of demons.3
Don’t mistake a smiling face with a friend, as the song goes ‘they smile in your face, but all along they want to take your place, the backstabbers’. Because we have not taught our children what made America great we have a nation who falsely believes that this melting pot of confusion is the cause of our triumph, when the truth is it is our Judeo-Christian roots that set us apart from other nations and made us great. The moment we begin moving further away from it, we as Adam dying we have surely died.4 Time has proven to be the greatest teacher to that fact.
Today, we still have people who want to point fingers at Clinton, Bush, Obama and other presidents for the mess we are in, but truth be told we would be more accurate if we would point our finger at the men and women who we see every morning. The President doesn’t make our nation, the congress doesn’t make our nation, we the people make choices, which determine the direction of our nation. We greatly error if we blame those who run for President for the problems we face, when we are the ones who empower them with our vote. Rather than choosing a man after God’s own heart we choose a man after our own heart and ask God to bless it. It’s the equivalent of praying for Satan to return to God, it’s a futile prayer that won’t come to pass. The simple fact of the matter is our values have changed, rather than trusting God as our provider we have put our trust in the mighty dollar, in the wonder drug’s, doctors, politicians, and governing system. To remove, disdain, or set God aside as our Provider and replace Him with anything else is to remove our allegiance and reliance upon YHWH. That act is diabolically an offence that can be defined as nothing less than mutiny. The same people who would pose the argument that the writings of our forefathers are outdated and no longer apply to our new advanced society are experiencing firsthand the truth that without the blessing of God NOTHING we do will work! Hence, we find ourselves becoming like the impoverished nations that used to look to us as the land of promise. Similarly, the church itself is discovering that the laws of the Old Testament bible do still apply and our ignorance of it has caused us to be subject to the same diseases, and financial problems that everyone else faces. We have made the same mistake the succeeding generation of the children of Israel who entered the promise land made. We forgot the consequences that were promised to us if we didn’t keep His commandments. In Deuteronomy 30, he informs them through the profit Moses that the law He gave them was two fold, blessing if you keep His commandments, and cursing if you disobey them.5 The promises of life and blessing only apply to those who keep covenant with God, if we don’t keep covenant with Him the promises of death are before us. When we disobey God’s commandment we subject ourselves to the same curses that were on Egypt.6 It is always important to identify the conditions God gives to the blessings on His people. God has called us to be His peculiar treasure and royal priesthood, and it is our obedience to His voice that determines if we are His.7 Our greatness as a nation can only occur as we obey His voice, even as the founding fathers obeyed His voice in what they wrote. It is our obedience to His voice that makes us great, the same principles of sovereignty which makes us a peculiar people. This is revealed in our declaration that man doesn’t give rights, but God gives rights. We have set ourselves apart as a nation that will defend every citizen’s God-given right to religion, speech, gun ownership, reaching as far as life itself.
Egypt too during the time of Joseph was looked up to as the land of promise, they years later would find themselves with leadership that declared the biggest lie until now, that he knew not the God of Joseph that put Egypt on the map. They would not shortly after discover and know quite well who the God of Joseph was. Egypt first receives world recognition as the land that saved the world from starvation, only to in its demise find itself once again on the world map for experiencing the wrath of the Almighty for its enslavement of His people.
Getting us out of Egypt is not nearly as hard as getting Egypt out of us.
Yet what destroyed the children of Israel was the love affair that they had with the lifestyle of Egypt. An inability to see the big picture through the small pixels caused those who left Egypt to die before fulfilling their purpose. History reveals to us that all of those who underwent enslavement had to go through a wilderness experience before they entered into a promise land, and like the children of Israel of old many of those who came out would not with their own eyes see the full picture, but would rather have to experience it through the succeeding generation. Our current form of slavery is found within the indoctrination methods we see taking place all over the nation. This is best seen in the cities where the pressure to conform to images have caused many to pierce themselves with many sorrows living in a lifestyle that enslaves them to Egypt. We, like the children of Israel find ourselves trying to fit in when God has called us to be a peculiar treasure not a willing clone. Rather than being the light that shines in darkness, we have chosen to dim our lights to blend in, and as a result we find ourselves in a land that has an abundance of technological savvy, a plethora of resources, and indeed as scripture has revealed knowledge that has increased and goes to and fro yet for all practical purposes we are impoverished, and exposed.8 Like Samson we keep shaking ourselves thinking we have the glory we once had, but the truth is our strength has been cut and no amount of shaking can pull us out from underneath the judgment that is sure to come. What is saddest is that in this state when we are clearly weak and vulnerable we honestly believe that we are stronger and better. Distorted messages from our officials would cause you to believe things are getting better, yet in the same breath you hear we are trillions of dollars in debt with no climb out.
Nevertheless, there is a way out for those who are willing to leave. Leave behind the stinking thinking that has put us in this position. A systemic return to the wisdom of scripture is taking place from a grassroots level. A silent revolution is taking the nation by storm as many Church spectators begin to become mantle carriers. As they begin to question what they have been fed and hold it up to the light of the truth of the word of Yah they are discovering all that is called God is not God, just as not all those who claim to serve Jesus is. We have been sold a pack of goods, as Malcolm X would say we have been run amuck, and led astray. We are robbing our seed of the true riches of life in an effort to reach for the brass ring. Teaching them to value their desires instead of the things they need. So now we train them to value things that depreciate the minute you buy them, and to devalue things that appreciate with time. We no longer share wisdom with them at the dinner table concerning the true virtues of life in Messiah. Instead we place them in front of a television that tares down the very faith we hold dear. Indeed, the greatest challenge we face is still the same, getting out of Egypt is not nearly as hard as getting Egypt out of us.
The world owes me something mentality is not something new to the youth of today, it is only a mere shadow of what we see in the wilderness experience that our forefathers endured after leaving Egypt. We read the constant demands of a people who were set free from bondage now questioning the provision and the motives of the very Helper who rescued them. The ungrateful and demanding demeanor they had as if the Creator was to blame for their hardships in Egypt. The constant complaining and grumbling with faithless jibber about the food they ate or whether or not His intentions were to kill them in the wilderness. This mindset is nothing new, even during slavery you had those slaves who were devoted to the very master who raped their mother, and separated them from their father. They would betray their own family if they attempted to leave the plantation because they themselves had misguided loyalty to people who didn’t love them as their own, but rather as their property. These are the very people who complained when brought out of Egypt concerning the leeks and melons they ate, lusting after the lifestyle they had because they were so caught up in the convenience of Egypt that they didn’t even recognize what they had to give up for it.
I remember reading about Harriet Tubman and how she was liken to Moses in her determination to help bring slaves to freedom. I recall the movies that revealed how even under harsh bondage that some of the slaves who suffered refused to leave to experience freedom. The familiarity of the known, even when enslaved, for many is more desirable then the hope of freedom if it means going through the unknown to get there. Like the days of Noah, Abraham, Moses, Elijah, Elisha, Jeremiah, Yahoshua, Paul, Harriet Tubman, Martin L. King, Malcolm X, and many others we are hearing the ever so clear calls from the other side of the wilderness where the promise land is to come out of our system of thinking. To put wings to our faith and put trust in our God; to begin valuing the things that He value, and not the things of this world.9 I know many would have problems with me adding Malcolm X, to these list of clear believers, but God is not limited in whom He can use to free His people. Yahoshua was sent to His own, yet many of those who were not of His own experienced the benefits and blessings of His ministry. They walked by faith trusting in the living Torah even when they didn’t have, keep, or walk according to the written Torah! Remember, a woman caught in the act of adultery was delivered, a Centurion’s request for healing for a soldier was delivered, a Samaritan woman who although expressed some common ancestry through Jacob had faith in a bible that was tainted with added commandments, yet Yahoshua who even by his own people’s reckoning shouldn’t have any dealings with her spoke to her. She was blessed with the opportunity to be one of the first women in scripture recorded to preach the Gospel to her people. All I am saying is God can use whomever He chooses to get a clear message to His people. Many of the teachings of Martin L. King came from a nonbeliever Mahatma Ghandi, yet none of us would question M.L. King’s faith. Remember Egypt is a type of bondage, and there are some religious Egyptian forms of thinking we need to let go of too. Don’t misunderstand I am not an advocate for the ecumenical movement in which all faith’s and any road can lead to heaven. It is very clear that Jesus (Yahoshua) is the only way to the father, this rules out any other substitute.10 I am under no delusion that another Jesus will return, but rather the one and only who came the first time and died for us will return again for us. Nevertheless, the opposition that the Messiah endured through the religious Egyptian system that operated from His own people, or at least those who claimed to be His (of Abraham’s seed), is still in operation today. Representing those who would like to put parameters around God that He didn’t set; who take and twist the scriptures to fit their own theology. As the bible put it, false prophets who dress in sheep’s clothing but inside are ravening wolves.11 The greatest opposition to the children of Israel is not the Pharaoh’s from without, but the wolves that are within. The children of Israel subjected themselves to Pharaoh under the guise of prosperity, those who looked to God for their prosperity didn’t suffer such bondages.
Who do we look to for our prosperity? Is it government stimulus packages and bailouts that we rely on or do we rely on Yah? Are we more concerned with building our own kingdom or His? Are we distracted by racial, religious, or political issues that seek to emphasize our differences or focusing on the central and most vital common link and need that we all have, which is a need for the Savior. See, I may not agree with your political views, I may not agree with your cultural assessments, nor embrace your religious beliefs, but there is one thing that we do have in common and that is we all have sinned and fallen short of His glory and are in desperate need of a Savior. How much of my life and my words express that truth? Point people to God and His ways? Teach them how to live a sustainable life in Him? Side issues keep us in bondage, salvation delivers us from it.
Salvation comes when we put our trust in the right and precise ark of safety. Noah, Moses, and King David were given a clear pattern for building the ark of safety. They were not given liberty or creative license to altar in any aspect the plan laid out by the Almighty. This brings me to another crucial point; there is always a physical component to the spiritual application. God gives us a natural assignment to express our Spiritual faith. We cannot have one without the other. Noah wasn’t instructed to just except that God was going to destroy the earth and start over with him, but he was given instructions in which his obedience to those instructions would secure his salvation. Faith produces work. Faith is the seed, while work is the fruit from the seed. If we understand that principle we understand that if we have the faith of a mustard seed we will produce fruit from that seed. Our lack of faith will produce a lack of fruit. My belief that God will provide fruit is what would cause me to water my seed, to fertilize it, to plant it in an area that it would get the optimum amount of sun. If I lack faith, I lack action behind it.
This brings me to the Underground Railroad that we see in the life of Harriet Tubman. She made optimum use of the resources she was given to bring deliverance to people. How many of us just want stuff, in which we have no practical use or need for it? Example, a house is a form of shelter which is a valid need, but you can’t tell me a five bedroom house is a necessity for a household of three; especially if there is no plan to have more kids, or at the expense of more kids. The irony is we will put off or avoid having kids so that we can afford a house that we have no intentions of filling? This is what I believe Ezekiel is speaking of in chapter 16 concerning the sin of Sodom:12
2) fullness of bread,
3) abundance of idleness, that didn’t apply to just her, but her children as well,
4) and didn’t strengthen the hand of the poor or the needy.
5) High Minded (Haughty)
Sounds familiar? This could be the American Creed, and the icing on the cake we just put into place a few months ago, committing abominations. Sanctioning gay marriage is a direct attack on the image of God as revealed throughout scripture from old and new as the union between husband and wife. We are now in the throws of seeing what happens when the cup of iniquity becomes full. When a nation throws off all levels of restraint, and the only safe haven of recourse believers have in the wake of this is to throw off the covering of Egypt and run into the ark of Messiah. Our greatest vote and chance of becoming instrumental in making any sort of effectual change will only occur as we distance ourselves from the current system by living the changes we need to see. Removing these tentacles requires us to get out of debt to Egypt, separate ourselves from the activities of Egypt, return to the tried and tested benefits of living by the Word of God as our forefathers taught, is going to be essential to our survival and our effectiveness in ministering to others.
The Bride of Messiah or the Harlot on the Beast
So now we must ask ourselves which one will we be, the bride of Messiah or the harlot on the beast? There is a struggle that goes on within us having been accustomed to the lifestyle of Egypt that is not easy to separate from. I too find myself comforted by its conveniences and easily swept away in its promises. However, we must remember the harlot is a deceiver, her faithfulness to you is temporal and there is no loyalty within her arms. She is self-serving and life draining. When she is done with you what she leaves behind is death, and your children’s inheritance will be the same. She doesn’t just destroy the individual, but she destroys your family. There is no end to her desire, so once you feed her it’s like putting water in a barrel with a hole at the bottom, it never gets full, and the more you feed it the more problems it creates, until it eventually carries you away.
On the contrary the bride of Messiah is a faithful woman. Her needs are met and she is content with her husband’s provision. His love for her is revealed in his nurturing words, and He fills her with revelations of her purpose. He protects, provides, and shields her from all enemies. He heals her wounds, listens to her cries, and treasures her body as His own. She finds joy in the presence of her Husband, and her Husband finds pleasure in her.
In this hour there is an underground place of refuge for the people of God. And as it was during the time of Harriet Tubman those who want to achieve freedom will have to pay the price for it. They will have to recognize that they are in bondage in their current life and as a result be willing to leave it behind if they are to enter into the promise land. On this journey we will have to simplify our lives. This means leaving a lot of things behind, carrying only that which is absolutely necessary because anything more are weights. We must value true assets, which are those things that will last, and be useful in serving the kingdom of Yah. Remember, the things God value are not the things the world value. The world elevates careers, and fame, and the abundance of things, where God values life, something the world will sacrifice to have the former. Appreciate frugality, learning how to be resourceful, no longer being wasteful, and most important developing a discerning ear. This year as I prepare for the feast of Trumpets I am reminded of the importance of being able to discern sounds of deliverance. How instrumental it was in alerting the children of Israel when danger was imminent. I can only imagine how important that was during the time of Harriet Tubman to securing safe passage to freedom. Not discerning the signals that were used could easily lead some to danger rather than safety. More than ever we need to make sure we know the sound of our Savior. In fact the Messiah said those who are His know His voice and a stranger they will not follow.13 Make sure when the freedom bell rings that you are on the train, and if you are, then I will see you on the other side.
Your Underground Servant,
1By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.
2 Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph.
3 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Eph 6:12)
4 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
5 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
6 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.
7Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
8But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
9 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. (1Jn 2:15-17)
10 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (Joh 14:6)
11 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (Mat 7:15)
12Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good. (Eze 16:49-50)
13 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. (Joh 10:4-5)
A Hebrew Moment
The 5th letter in the Hebrew Alephbet is “hey” and its picture clearly reveals its meaning. When we raise our arms in praise we are beholding His majesty, marveling at His handiwork, and the view as we look up is breathtaking. The words I underlined are done so because the Hebrew character for this word means to “look”, “behold”, “see”, or “sigh” It is also used as a prefix for words to stand for “the”. Just as in a sentence “the” points to or reveals something important.
Last month we covered the character “dalet” which is the middle character represented. The last character in this word in Hebrew is pronounced “samech”. This word means “shield, thorn, pierce, sharp”.
This word means Myrtle, and the reason I chose it is because it bears the same name as this month’s oil of understanding as well as a biblical heroine by the Persian name of Esther. Much like we have been taught the Greek name for our Messiah who would have been called by the Hebrew name Yahoshua this word has a hidden and mysterious wisdom behind it. Whether you search it out in a Strongs or Browns Driver Briggs it is said to be derived from uncertain origin. Like the Queen Esther who was put in power as a Persian Queen, but was born a beautiful Hebrew woman, she like the church (body of Christ) is hidden within the world. We know that not all that are called His are His. But he tells us we will know a tree by its fruit. The Myrtle tree like the woman who is named after it has many healing benefits.

Oil of understanding
15 mL bottle
Named after one of the bravest women of the bible, Esther, born Hadassah (Myrtle). This hidden treasure like the woman who bares its name has many benefits for women. Interesting to note branches from this tree was one among a select few used in building Sukkot’s (Temporary dwelling places the children of Israel were commanded to build once a year for the Feast of Tabernacles – Lev. 23). This oil can be used for balancing your hormones, fighting urinary tract infections, Bronchitis, Prostate problems, Asthma, Thyroid problems, Sinusitis, and infections. Could you imagine the benefit this would have to those who would be breathing in this beautiful fragrance as they slept or ate underneath these sukkot’s year after year? How those who normally might have had problems breathing outside might be at perfect peace under such branches. Remember it is the leaf of the tree that houses the essential oil of the plant that when broken releases its fragrance. This sweet smelling fragrance is both healthful and beneficial to those who take in its pleasant fragrance. I encourage you to buy your own and add to your supplemental collection. Young Living Therapeutic Grade Myrtle oil can be used topically on location, diffused or put in humidifier, or taken internally as a dietary supplement.

Propylene Glycol is found in many different personal care products. It is used as a penetration enhancer that stabilizes products by keeping them from heating up and/or freezing during temperature variation. It can be readily found in the following products:
· Acne treatment
· Nail polish
· Ice cream
There are over 1,041 products that use this substance.
What should be most concerning to you as a consumer is the fact that this substance not only has the ability itself to reach the bloodstream, but it is an enhancer which means that it can help carry other foreign substances with it to your bloodstream. Having that knowledge only leaves one obviously important question, which is, is it safe?
According to The Environmental Working Group, there are a host of problems that can be caused by this substance. It has been linked to Cancer, developmental/reproductive issues, allergies/immunotoxicity, neurotoxicity, and endocrine disruption. While this represents the most severe damage this substance can do on the lower end it can provoke skin irritation and sensitization in humans by 2% concentration. You’d be happy to know that the industry review panel recommends cosmetics can contain up to 50% of the substance. Always be advised the items that appear first in the list of ingredients represent the substance that is in most abundance in your product; which means be especially careful if you find propylene glycol in the top 3 ingredients.
Staying away from this harmful substance however won’t be as easy as it seems. Creative marketers have learned to dodge the health savvy consumer by using alias, or synonymous names. However, this information can be easily found by researching it online. Here are a few other names that may appear in the ingredients list for propylene glycol: 1,2-dihydroxypropane, 1,2-propanediol, methyl glycol, and trimethyl glycol. My rule of thumb is simply this, if I can’t pronounce it, or if there are numbers and hyphens connected with it then I probably need to leave it on the shelf. Anything too complicated to pronounce is probably not meant to be put in or on my body. Your ingredient list should be kept simple if it is safe.
