The House That Yahshua HAS And IS Building

Introduction:

Isaiah 2:2-3 – It shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the house of Yahweh shall be established as the highest of the mountains, and shall be lifted up above the hills; and all the nations shall flow to it,  and many peoples shall come, and say: “Come, let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh, to the house of the Elohim of Jacob, that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths.” For out of Zion shall go the law, and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem. ESV

Note: This is a prophetic glimpse of the house of Yahweh, and it represents His heart and vision, past, present and future.

Isaiah 56:6-8“And the foreigners who join themselves to Yahweh, to minister to him, to love the name of Yahweh, and to be his servants, everyone who keeps the Sabbath and does not profane it, and holds fast my covenant— these I will bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer; their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.”  Yahweh Elohim, who gathers the outcasts of Israel, declares, “I will gather yet others to him besides those already gathered.” ESV

Note: This is a prophetic declaration of the Fathers heart concerning foreigners and strangers being joined and a part. In short, He said, because you love My name, keep My Sabbath, and remember My covenant, there is a special place for you in My House of Prayer, and there many nations shall gather together on that day.

“The things that unite us are more important than the things that divide us” blh

“Unless and until we are willing to relate beyond our petty differences, nothing much will change about our lives together in Him. Diversity is the spice of life and unity cannot be achieved without controversy, conflict, concession and compromise.” blh

“What we know divides us. Who we know unites us.” Jay Ferris

‘Unity’ for me comes out of an understanding that we are sons of the same Father, and brothers of the same family. Therefore, we must learn to value the part and divine placement of every other member of the family. When we are willing to move beyond cooperating and tolerating each other, we will begin to celebrate the distinguishing characteristics that make each of us different. Only then will we begin to understand that what each one of us brings to the table is for someone else, and therefore has very little to do with how it makes us feel to contribute.

That means, what others bring to the table maybe something that will empower us in our quest to advance the Kingdom of Yahweh together. Part of receiving one another will include receiving what each one of us carries close to our hearts.

We do not have to agree with one another on every point in order to walk and work together. However, we must be willing to come together for Yahweh’s greater Kingdom purpose.

Mark 11:17 And he was teaching them and saying to them, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations’? But you have made it a den of robbers.” ESV

Note: Yahshua was the pattern son and everything He said or did represented the Father’s heart.

John 5:19-20 Then Yahshua answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.  For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel. NKJV

John 5:24-27, 29-30“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God; and those who hear will live.  For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself,  and has given Him authority to execute judgment also, because He is the Son of Man.  and come forth— those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.  I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me. NKJV

John 8:28-29 Then Yahshua said to them, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and that I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things.  And He who sent Me is with Me. The Father has not left Me alone, for I always do those things that please Him.” NKJV

John 14:1-6 “Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.  In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.  If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.  And you know the way where I am going.”

Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. NASB

Matthew 16:18-19 And I tell you, you are Peter [Greek, Petros –a large piece of rock], and on this rock [Greek, petra –a huge rock like Gibraltar] I will build My church, and the gates of Hades (the powers of the infernal region) shall not overpower it [or be strong to its detriment or hold out against it].

I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind (declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose (declare lawful) on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven. [Isa. 22:22.] AMP

Luke 12:32-34“Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you   the kingdom.  Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys.  For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. ESV

Note: I have come to understand that it is the responsibility of every son in every generation, to catch and embrace the Father’s heart and Spirit in their lifetime. ESV

Complete In Him

Ephesians 1:3-6 Blessed be the Elohim and Father of our Sovereign Yahshua Messiah who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Messiah, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Yahshua Messiah to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved. NKJV

{We are the blessed, chosen and holy sons of Yahweh, who have inherited every spiritual blessing in heavenly places and we are accepted in the beloved}

Ephesians 2:4-7 But Yahweh, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Messiah (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Messiah Yahshua, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Messiah Yahshua. NKJV

{He made us alive together. He raised us up together and made us sit together in heavenly places in Messiah Yahshua}

Philippians 1:6 being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Yahshua Messiah; NKJV

{The work that He has begun in us will not be completed until the Daystar arises in our hearts, and we come into a better understanding of the finished work of Yahshua, as well as the consummation of all things} 2 Peter 1:18-20

Colossians 2:9-11 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power. In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Messiah, NKJV

Colossians 2:10 and you have been filled in him, who is the head of all rule and authority. ESV

{Understanding who we are in Him together is the consummation of all things, the fellowship of the brotherhood, and the mystery revealed. We are the body of Messiah, the bright and Morning Star.

We are the fullness of Messiah to this generation, and we are making known the manifold wisdom of Yahweh to the principalities and powers in heavenly places. Our corporate expression is a testimony of the resurrection power of Yahshua, and it is a witness against the forces of darkness. Our very presence is a reminder that their reign has ended, and the day of Yahshua (the SON) is come. We are complete in Him}

Note; Salvation, Healing and Deliverance are a part of the full comprehensive plan of salvation. If healing and deliverance are not a part of the plan, then how can we truly trust the coverage at any level? (We can’t)

However, everything we need can and will be discovered in body of Messiah. We cannot be made whole or complete apart from the body of Messiah, the corporate SON, the many-membered MAN. Simply put, we need one another in order to glorify Him in the all the earth, and thereby fulfill the practical will and purpose of Yahweh for our lives.

 Colossians 2: 8-10 watch out for people who try to dazzle you with big words and intellectual double-talk. They want to drag you off into endless arguments that never amount to anything. They spread their ideas through the empty traditions of human beings and the empty superstitions of spirit beings. But that’s not the way of Christ. Everything of God gets expressed in him, so you can see and hear him clearly. You don’t need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ, and the emptiness of the universe without him. When you come to him, that fullness comes together for you, too. His power extends over everything. TMGB

II Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of Yahweh may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. NKJV

Hebrews 13:20-21 Now may the Elohim of peace who brought up our Sovereign Yahshua from the dead, that great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Yahshua Messiah, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. NKJV

James 1:2-4 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. NKJV

I hear the Spirit saying, “I want more of you. Not your time, talent, money or stuff. I want more of you.”

“When the SPIRIT &TRUTH is your internal order, LIFE & PEACE will govern your public persona”

We are living in a time when the LIVING WORD of YAHWEH is testing the purity level of our hearts. He is exposing the nature of beast that continues to contaminate the gene pool.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. ESV

John 6:63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. NKJV

Think it not strange that our motives are being checked by Holy Spirit and challenged by mature sons. False doctrine comes out of bad theology.

It is time to come under the authority of the Father’s loving hand and give ourselves to His gentle correction. Chastisement is better than disciplinary action.

Much of what we have become to this point has been apart from HIM, and for the most part we have been alienated from the commonwealth we share together.

Unfortunately, we represent the mixture of mingled seed and a gross lack of understanding. If it were not for the uncontaminated strain of Yahweh’s DNA that continues to work in us, we would hardly be recognizable.

Proverbs 18:1-2 A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire; He rages against all wise judgment. A fool has no delight in understanding, But in expressing his own heart.

Note: What we have become apart from HIM is presently dying or systematically being killed off by the life of Yahweh and Spirit of Truth.

Matthew 12:30 Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters. ESV

“This is war, and there is no neutral ground. If you’re not on My side, you’re the enemy; if you’re not helping, you’re making things worse. TMGB

“It is time to fish or cut bait, and the fish are schooling”

“The house that Yahshua has and is building is made up of sons who are growing up Into Him.”

Ephesians 4:11-16 And He Himself gave some to  be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. NKJV

Note: He plants a man in a land. From that man a seed comes forth representing family.  From that family a tribe. From that tribe a village. From that village a community. From that community a city. From that city a people, nation and world.

Sons don’t need permission to serve, lead or rule, and when they are ready to be a primary leader, they will not have to persuade or convince others of their qualifications. Those to whom they have been sent will recognize the Father’s authority, and they will readily support and follow them in the ongoing work.

If you are not qualified to be a primary leader, then find your place as a secondary. Help and assist others who are ready to take the lead. There is nothing  dishonorable about following and supporting true leaders in any meaningful endeavor.

Conclusion:

“If you don’t have a clearly defined gifting and anointing as a leader, you need to be joined to someone who does, and you need to be supporting them in the work.”
