Which Kingdom Are You Building

In Genesis chapters 6 through 11 we read a series of events that have shape the history of the world.  First, Noach is commanded to build an ark to save humanity and the animal kingdom.  Noach obeys the voice of the Almighty and brings glory to the name of YHWH through is obedience.  Then Genesis tells the account of the evil Nimrod and the building of the tower of Babel.  The people of the world construct their tower to build a name to themselves.

The similarities in these stories are amazing.  Noach acts in righteousness and builds a saving ark to honor the name of YHWH.  Nimrod and the nations act in unrighteousness and build an upward city to establish their dominance in the world.  The same Hebrew word is used in both verses for “built.”  This is the Hebrew phrase “banah.”  From this information we can learn many spiritual truths.

From these stories we can learn the spiritual principle of building.  This states that you dwell in the house that you build.  You live in the life that you have created.  Your life will be made of the walls of thought that you construct.  First, we must first consider that our actions and thoughts either bring glory and honor to YHWH or shame Him.  We can do good things and build kingdoms but that doesn’t mean that we are working for the glory of YHWH.  Similar building materials were used for both the ark and the tower but the motives were quite different.

From these stories we can also learn the spiritual principle of building.  This idea states that “you live in whatever house you build.”  This is similar to the idea that “if you made your bed then you have to lay in it.”  What you think upon equals what you become.  The actions you take develop the life you create.  If you want your life to be different then you must be different.  If you dream of being a teacher, trooper, or tinker then it’s time to get busy!  If you are happy with the status quo then keep doing what you are doing.  If nothing changes then nothing changes.  But if you change THEN everything changes!

Don’t allow the simplicity of this message to sway your thinking.  We all have complaints about our situations, our spouses, and our siblings.  Instead of dwelling on the problem – change that negative energy into positive thoughts and then BE the change you want to see in this world.  Agree with Y’shua and say, “not my will but thy will be done.”  Let go of the situation that demands your attention and stop trying to fix your problems.  Trust YHWH to use you for His glory.  “For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Messiah Y’shua,” Philippians 1:5-7.

Get a vision for your life and then take the necessary actions to accomplish your heart’s desire.  Today is the first day of your new life.  Build your own house and then dwell in it for the glory of YHWH’s name. What you face today, be it good or bad, will soon pass.  All that will remain will be what was done by the Spirit of YHWH.

The Remedy for Sin Sickness

Like the microscopic world of germs, there is an unseen world of the supernatural.  Just because you can’t feel it or see it, doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist.  The sickness of sin has been vaccinated and healed.  In the spiritual realm, YHWH’s chesed / grace has wiped out the plague of sin and death.  Now, we must choose to walk in our spiritual healing.  “This I say therefore, and testify in YHWH, that from now on you conduct your halacha / walk not as other gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, Having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of Y’shua through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their lev / heart: Who being past feeling have given themselves over to indecency, to perform all uncleanness with greediness.  But you have not learned your life in Moshiach that way;” Ephesians 4:17-20.

To accomplish such a mighty task, one should cling to YHWH and His word.  Study and meditate on the scriptures.  Fast and pray.  Believe that there is a world beyond what you can see, smell, touch, taste, or hear.  And believe that in that spiritual realm, all of your needs are met in Y’shua our Messiah.  In closing, when a person is born again, their spirit is transformed into a new creation.  But, their mind and body are the same.  If you were skinny before you accepted Y’shua, you were skinny right after you accepted Him.  The old man that has died left behind a body!  This body must come under control and subjection of the spirit of Y’shua.

The mind too must be renewed to Biblical pattern of thinking.  Until the mind, or soul, is transformed an individual will continue to doubt, fear, lust, and sin.  Romans 12:1 & 2 clarifies that there is a two step process to true holiness.  “I beg you therefore, Israelite brothers, by the rachamim / mercies of YHWH, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, set apart, acceptable to YHWH, which is your act of reasonable worship.  And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the ongoing renewing of your mind, that you may discern what is that good, acceptable, and even the perfect, will of YHWH,” Romiyah / Romans 12: 1 & 2.

The body must be presented to YHWH upon the altar and the mind must be renewed to YHWH’s thought process.  It is only when we fully offer ourselves to him and walk in emunah that we experience the true healing from sin and death.  HIV is bad.  Sin is worse.  But, by chesed through faith in Y’shua we can have healing and deliverance.

Did Grace Replace the Law

“Grace” is unmerited or undeserved favor.  Though “grace” is often the subject of Sunday sermons, the term is usually misunderstood and misrepresented.  Psalm 89:2 states that the world was formed upon the foundation of grace.  The Hebrew word used in this verse and throughout the Old Testament for “grace” or “mercy” is “chesed.”  This term appears over 240 […]

Do You Have to Keep Torah

It’s easy to make the mistake and assume that everyone has to obey the Torah exactly as you do. This is probably one of the biggest error of our faith. The Torah is a liberal document of freedom that allows many various interpretations. We are accustomed to the tight knit theologies that tell us exactly […]

How to love YHWH

Many people continue in sin or excuse their sin because they reason that they are inherently sinful.  This is like a person who is supposed to be on a diet but overeats during the day because of one small slip up.  The thought is, “well I might as well give in to this sin and […]

Power Over Sin

Sin has a powerful, magnetic pull.  The members of the body are prone to seek satisfaction. The gates of the mouth, ears, and eyes only want what feels good.  These gates are fed by the five senses of touch, taste, smell, sound, and sight.  We must be careful not to allow these openings to rule […]

The 4 Cups of the Seder

A Seder is a special commemorative meal that is held in the spring time and remembers the events surrounding the exodus from Egypt. Traditional Seders include bitter herbs, matzah, and four cups of wine. These four glasses of wine are each symbolic of statements. These cups tell the Passover story and vividly remind us that […]

The Leper Messiah

It has been suggested that there is a possibility that the Messiah was stricken with the horrible skin disease spoken of in this Torah portion.  Modern translations refer to this disorder as at type of “leprosy.”  Could Y’shua have taken upon Himself the infirmities of mankind in the form of leprosy?  The disease in our […]
