WATCH THIS ASAP
Have you ever considered just how many things in our daily lives are taught as unquestionable fact and they really might not be? Things we are taught in “school” from the time we are old enough that we just don’t question… historical “facts”, scientific “facts”, mathematical “facts”, even current events… what are all of these things based on? Who decided they would be taught as facts? How do we know if they are, in fact, accurate and true? How important is it on the grand scale of things?
It could be very important if we base any beliefs or make any assumptions based on these so-called facts.
For example, I have always thought that the book of Joshua was written with a lack of knowledge when they said “the sun stood still”. We all know that it is the earth that moves and not the sun, right? Hmmm – but IS that right?
Or what about the giants mentioned in Genesis and many other places in Scripture? The writers are just comparing to themselves, right? We all know there is no such thing as a giant, don’t we?
Ok, now think about the horrific creatures described in the book of the revelation. Surely they must be either spiritual meanings or trying to describe things they didn’t understand – such as helicopters or missiles.
These things and many more are some of the areas I have been studying and reading and wondering about. At this point, there are NO sacred cows in my life. Absolutely nothing that I am not willing to audit. Every belief, every assumption, every doctrine, every thing is getting a second look, or a third or fourth look… testing it against the original Scriptures as Paul commended the Bereans for doing, and testing it against the character of our unchanging Creator and Elohim.
If you think of me, please pray for discernment in all of these areas. I just want to be a pleasing child until that Final Day! =) Are you with me?
I apologize for my lack of communication for the last few weeks. I started a new business on the 9th of last month and it has been a crazy month! In light of everything I see coming VERY SOON, I felt time was of the essence and when I heard about this, I sat my family down, told them about it and asked what they thought. They told me to go for it and they would take over the household for me – so, I jumped on it. My first check is coming in 10 or 11 days and then I will see if this is going to be worth it. If my calculations are correct, then it should be pretty sizable. =)
I have also been studying calendar, prophecy and observing the signs of the times. Whew! If you have not heard of R3b3cca St3rl1ng, (the 3’s are E’s – for her protection) I highly recommend that you look her up on youtube. I don’t know how long it will be up there, so I suggest doing it ASAP. Also Gill P Broussard and Douglass Hamp… but start with her. These are the reasons I want to get our last bit of debt paid off NOW (rather than $500 here and there) and then use whatever else I make to purchase things that will be beneficial for times such as these…
UPDATE: I noticed that the youtube videos have been removed, but the audio portion can be found at the following two links:
I am also member of an amazing fb group that she started, so if anyone reading this would like to know more about that, please use my contact form and tell me your fb name. I will connect with you.
Lastly, she also has a message board that you can join. This goes into more detail on various topics.
I want to leave you with two things.
1. As I have said before. Be ready! If you are not ready for all of this SPIRITUALLY, mentally and emotionally, it won’t really be beneficial to be ready physically, although you certainly don’t want to be in debt to the big bankers or to our g0v when it all comes down. Keep your finger on the pulse of events, especially the news that is behind the scenes. You need to first of all REPENT and then be IN COVENANT with the almighty Creator of the Universe. Read Exodus chapter 19, Ezra chapters 9 and 10, Nehemiah chapters 8 and 9. Actually, if this is all new to you, start in the beginning (Genesis) and read through the entire Scripture! Do it as if your life depends on it! (IT DOES) Ask the FATHER to give you understanding as you read. I have never received as much understanding or excitement from reading Scripture as I have in the last 5 years since I have entered into covenant with Him. Even if you come from any type of protestant or christian background, you may have never been taught about this covenant. I never was. At least not the way I understand it presently. I truly believe that the people spoken of in the book of the Revelation of Messiah, written by John, the disciple whom our Messiah loved, are those who do TWO things. Read Revelation 12:17 and 15:3 They guard the commandments AND believe in YHUSHA the Messiah!
2. Warn others. A few posts ago I showed some passages of how our Father feels when we are aware of what is coming and do not warn others. I am not sure exactly who that applies to, but I know I don’t want anyone’s blood on my hands. I am actually working on a letter/email that I will be sending out to folks in addition to those I meet face to face and those I meet online. Don’t delay! What if the final 3 1/2 years begins this spring? (I do believe it will begin around the time of Pesach, whichever year it begins… maybe this year, maybe next…) Once it begins, there won’t be much time left to get ready. Maybe none.
I don’t say all of this to scare you to but wake you up. We are told to wake up, to watch, to be alert and ready so the Day of YHWH (יהוה) does not take us by surprise.
1 Thessalonians 5:1-8 “Now, brothers (and sisters), as to the times and the seasons, you do not need to be written to. For you yourselves know very well that the day of יהוה comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then suddenly destruction comes upon them, as labour pains upon a pregnant woman, and they shall not escape. But you, brothers (and sisters), are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. For you are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. So, then, we should not sleep, as others do, but we should watch and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night. But we who are of the day should be sober, putting on the breastplate of belief and love, and as a helmet the expectation of deliverance.”
2 Peter 3:10 “But the day of יהוה will come like a thief. (to those who are not awake!) The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.”
Revelation 3:3 “Remember, then, how you have received, and heard. And watch and repent. If, then, you do not wake up, I shall come upon you as a thief, and you shall not know at all what hour I come upon you.
Revelations 16:15 “Look, I come like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake and remains clothed, so as not to go naked and be shamefully exposed.”
These are some serious times ahead, but we can have SHALOM because we can say with Paul, I know Whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to watch over that which I have entrusted to Him until that Day. 2 Tim 1:12b
I was reading fairly recently in the book of Ezekiel and wanted to share a couple of passages I came across. I believe this first one in chapter 3 applies to those of us who have had our eyes opened.
That is some very serious stuff!
And take a look at this one in Ezekiel 18:5-32 ~ this was DEFINITELY not taught to me in “sunday school”!!
“IF a man is righteous and does what is just and right—IF he
- does not eat upon the mountains (the high places)
- or lift up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel,
- does not defile his neighbor’s wife
- or approach a woman in her time of menstrual impurity,
- does not oppress anyone,
- but restores to the debtor his pledge,
- commits no robbery,
- gives his bread to the hungry and
- covers the naked with a garment,
- does not lend at interest
- or take any profit,
- withholds his hand from injustice,
- executes true justice between man and man,
- walks in my statutes, and
- keeps my rules by acting faithfully
—HE IS RIGHTEOUS; he shall surely live, declares YHWH Elohim.
“If he fathers a son who is violent, a shedder of blood, who does any of these things (though he himself did none of these things), who even eats upon the mountains, defiles his neighbor’s wife,oppresses the poor and needy, commits robbery, does not restore the pledge, lifts up his eyes to the idols, commits abomination, lends at interest, and takes profit; shall he (the son) then live? He shall not live. He has done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon himself.
“Now suppose this man fathers a son who sees all the sins that his father (the second son above) has done; he sees, and does not do likewise: he does not eat upon the mountains or lift up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, does not defile his neighbor’s wife, does not oppress anyone, exacts no pledge, commits no robbery, but gives his bread to the hungry and covers the naked with a garment,withholds his hand from iniquity,takes no interest or profit, obeys my rules, and walks in my statutes; he shall not die for his father’s iniquity; he shall surely live. As for his father, because he practiced extortion, robbed his brother, and did what is not good among his people, behold, he (his father) shall die for his iniquity.
“Yet you say, ‘Why should not the son suffer for the iniquity of the father?’ When the son has done what is just and right, and has been careful to observe all my statutes, he shall surely live. The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself.
“But if a wicked person turns away from all his sins that he has committed and keeps all my statutes and does what is just and right, he shall surely live; he shall not die. None of the transgressions that he has committed shall be remembered against him; for the righteousness that he has done he shall live. Have I any pleasure in the death of the wicked, declares YHWH Elohim, and not rather that he should turn from his way and live? But when a righteous person turns away from his righteousness and does injustice and does the same abominations that the wicked person does, shall he live? None of the righteous deeds that he has done shall be remembered; for the treachery of which he is guilty and the sin he has committed, for them he shall die.
“Yet you say, ‘The way of YHWH is not just.’ Hear now, O house of Israel: Is my way not just? Is it not your ways that are not just? When a righteous person turns away from his righteousness and does injustice, he shall die for it; for the injustice that he has done he shall die. Again, when a wicked person turns away from the wickedness he has committed and does what is just and right, he shall save his life. Because he considered and turned away from all the transgressions that he had committed, he shall surely live; he shall not die. Yet the house of Israel says, ‘The way of YHWH is not just.’ O house of Israel, are my ways not just? Is it not your ways that are not just?
“Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, declares YHWH Elohim. Repent and turn from all your transgressions, lest iniquity be your ruin. Cast away from you all the transgressions that you have committed, and make yourselves a new heart and a new spirit! Why will you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares YHWH Elohim; so turn, and live.”
Here is another one in Ezekiel 33 ~ Why are we not taught these things??? The first 9 verses are basically a repeat of the above from chapters 3 and 18, but then it goes on to say in verses 10-20:
This recipe from Chefs in Disguise makes the softest cinnamon rolls ever! I do recommend that you double or maybe even triple the caramel sauce =) Warning: it takes FOREVER to be ready! (totally worth it though!) And it makes a dozen HUGE (cinnabon size) cinnamon rolls. You will want to have two boxes of butter so you can use it generously throughout this recipe!
Seriously, you will need to start making these two nights before you want to eat them… The total rising time is 24-36 hours, plus prep time and baking time… I put suggested times down here for rolls at 9 am on day two. If you have questions about any details, I highly recommend visiting their website where they have lots of detailed pictures.
I have taken the liberty to subsitute honey for sugar and change the measurements from grams.
Step One: Night one, at 8pm, take 5 oz of your sourdough starter and add 12 oz water and 2 1/2 cups of flour. Let this sit overnight for 8-12 hours or until doubled. I would recommend that you refrigerate it to slow it down. (this sourdough mix is now called “the levain”)
Step Two: Day one, at 8 am, cream 1/2 cup soft BUTTER and then add 3 large eggs, 1 1/2 tablespoons of honey, 2 tablespoons of vanilla and 4 oz of mashed potato. Blend well. Next add 3/4 cup of buttermilk and the sourdough mixture (levain) that sat overnight, mixing gradually, and then add 5 cups of flour or until it makes a very sticky dough, almost a batter. The recipe calls for 21 grams of salt, but I didn’t add that much, it sounded like a LOT to me!
Allow the dough to rest, covered, for 20 minutes and then mix again for 2-3 minutes.
Around 9am on Day one, turn the dough out into a large, lightly-oiled bowl. Cover and allow to ferment in a cool location for 8-12 hours or until doubled (I did this in a warm location and it took only 3-4 hours) If you do the cool method, every 4 hours, lift the dough to stretch and then fold it onto itself.
When the dough is close to being ready, around 8pm, begin mixing the filling: (I will definitely double or triple this next time)
At 8 or 9 pm on night two, once the dough has finished fermenting, roll it out in two large rectangles. Be sure to use a VERY WELL floured surface! Spread melted or soft BUTTER on the dough and sprinkle generously with cinnamon and drizzle with honey. Roll the dough up and slice into your desired roll size. Pour the sauce in the bottom of two BUTTERED 9×13 pans and if desired add chopped pecans. Place the rolls on top of the sauce in each pan and then BUTTER the top of the rolls lightly. At 9 or 10 pm on night two, cover and let rise for 8-12 hours or until they have doubled. Again, I did this in a warm house and it took half the time. You can refrigerate overnight to slow down the ferment and then put them directly into the oven from the refrigerator.
At 8am on day two, bake at 400º for 25-35 minutes or until internal temperature is 195º. Remove from oven and brush AGAIN with MORE melted BUTTER! =) Then flip the entire pan over onto a cookie sheet with sides that is larger than the 9×13, so the caramel sauce is on TOP. This is quite a feat to do without burning yourself or spilling it everywhere… Allow to cool
Cream together. Add more milk if needed.
When the rolls have cooled or when you can’t wait any longer, frost them and eat them! =)
***These can be frozen and then warmed at 200º for 10-15 minutes.
Some of you may know that I have been making my own soap and selling it since 2002. I have also been making my own candles and selling them since 2005. In addition, there have been lip balms, shea butter, salts and other items mixed in there. I enjoy making these things, and thought I would continue to sell them at markets and shows, but the more I do, the more it seems that YHWH does not want me to be selling them. I did a show last week where I had my own soap, candles, shea butter and salts, plus some Pikles, mittens and my doTERRA oils. The products I made hardly sold at all. The doTERRA oils brought in the most finances and provided the most opportunity to minister to people. SO…
I will continue to make these for our family and as gifts here and there, but it seems I will not be selling soap, candles, etc as a business anymore for now. If any of you would like to order what I have left, here is a list: (see pictures below)
These can be ordered through my contact form. Let me know if you would prefer to pay through paypal or send a check. (the candle scents are peppermint (EO), a cinnamon blend (EO), spruce (EO), plumeria, pomegranate, Ciara, lemon verbena, citrus blend (EO), Tranquil and one unscented)
