When the Son of Man Cometh, Will He Find Faith in the Earth???

All the land that GOD apportioned to the children of Israel came to be described as the Holy Land, only because Abraham resided in it.

The land was not holy in and of itself.

The Land became Holy because of the Faith of One Man.

Because Abraham was Holy, the land GOD gave him was Holy. Abraham was the 1st person to pursue GOD by faith, and by the faith of one man who followed GOD, into the land that GOD showed him…, the land became holy as well.

Holiness permeates and saturates every place that the sole of your feet shall tread…

It’s because of your faith. It’s because of who you are to GOD.

Just like it was for Abraham, the land was not called holy until he occupied it.

Even if you are the only one in the land, the only one in the room with faith in GOD, the only one in place believing in GOD, even if you are the only in the workplace praying and believing in GOD, even if you are the only one in the neighborhood, who stands with GOD… Wherever you are…

You are the one that makes that place Holy Unto the LORD.

Stand the watch, be faithful and vigilant, pray unceasingly. Call for the abundance of rain in your land at all times. Protect the anointing on your life and over those that GOD has given you. Saturate them in prayer and thanksgiving. Hold the territory for the Kingdom of Heaven.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. John 14:12

You are the key ingredient that remains in the earth to do the works of the LORD. Wherever you are, you bring holiness into the earth.

And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. Luke 19:13

Here’s what I believe… When the son of man cometh, He will find faith in the earth, (Luke 18:8), because You will be here holding territory for GOD.

Here’s to You and all of Your Greater Works…

AMEN

Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the Lord your God am holy. (Lev 19:2)

Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God. And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the Lord which sanctify you. (Lev 20:7-8)

But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. (1Peter 1:15-16)

Abraham, the father of Israel, the first person to follow GOD and teach others in the belief of one God. God commanded Abraham to leave his birthplace; his kindred, his country and his father’s house and go … to the land that I will show you. (Gen 12:1)

The promise of the land that GOD assigned to Abraham and Isaac , GOD said, “I assign to you (Jacob) and to your offspring to come.”  (Gen. 35:12)

I will bring you into the land which I swore to give to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and I will give it to you for a possession. (Ex. 6:6-8)

“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, neither male nor female, for you are all one in Yeshua, Christ Jesus. If you belong to Yeshua (Christ), then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Gal 3:28-29)

“It was not through the law that Abraham and his offspring received the promise that he would be heir of the world, but through the righteousness that comes by faith.” (Rom 4:13)

Special Series…. TalkTorahToMe.CAFE

CONNECTING THE DOTS…. AND DOING THE MATH

The Genealogies contain so many Pearls of Wisdom, so much detail, so many facts. I need to show you this, so that my students will never be among those who skip over the genealogies as if they are repetitive, full of dead history that is not applicable or useful in anyway.

All of scripture All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 2 Tim 3:16

Every jot and title is important and we will not overlook them. We will search them out and investigate the scriptures to find every hidden treasure available to enrich our understanding.

Introducing… TalkTorahToMe.Cafe

A Special New Series I am introducing for my students containing brief insights regarding scripture passages that cross our paths during individual study times that can be shared and may be beneficial with all students.

SOME THINGS ARE JUST TRUE!

I especially like this example found in Psalms 110:4 which does quite a few things:

  • It demonstrates that passages we have read for years in the customary translations say much more than what we first thought they said… or much more than we were first taught.
  • There are so many gems to be found beneath the pages of scripture that a literal (p’shat) reading of the text will never reveal.
  • The depth of historical information that is often glossed over a fable, myth or impossibility..are actual fact with sign and manifestations that exist in the world today, we just aren’t aware of them.
  • The tendency some might have to relegate what seems impossible on the surface to our special internal compartments of faith (“I believe GOD anyway!”) is nice and sweet and beautiful… but completely unwarranted. GOD has just been Completely Amazing for a very long time! So much so that Faith isn’t even required, it’s just true!

Why do we need to know these particular facts about Melchizedek?

#1. Oftentimes we can present new information to our study groups that some students will invariably want to dispute or have multiple question with, for instance discovering that ancient commentaries reveal to us that Shem was born circumcised. “How do we know?”, “Where does it say that in the Bible?”, What does it mean?”, “Why does it matter?”

The 1st two questions I’ll answer right now. There are many facts in the scripture that are not spoken of multiple times, or proved int he sense that we may want proof. They don’t have to be.

There is no reason to dispute information such as “Shem was born circumcised” simply because we only have to look at what occurs in the world today. Our evidence is in today.

Mechizedek was born spiritually advanced, embracing the priesthood of GOD. Some say he misspoke and caused his priesthood to pass to Abraham because he was not careful with his words. That’s one possibility.

More intriguing to me, is that the verse doesn’t even say, “after the order of, or after th manner of” that’s poetic spin.

The verse actually reads, “Upon/after the Word of My Righteous King, a.k.a Melchizedek”

Whether the Angel of the LORD came and spoke these words (prophecied) unto Abraham on behalf of Our Righteous King, or YHVH (Adonai) came and prophecied these words by way of Melchizedek to Abraham…

The Priest of GOD passed his mantle to Abraham by prophetic utterance and Abraham caught it! Words ordained by GOD for you to speak, move faster than the speed of thought! This was not a ninety year old man talking to another ninety year old man. 400+ years in the LORD, Melchizedek was not a novice given to mishaps in prophetic utterance.

A 90 year old man in the LORD is not a novice, let alone a Man of GOD 400+ years in the LORD, in a time when the Glory of GOD was closer in the earth than today.

Besides, have you even known a healthy 90 year old man not to say what he means? Is that even possible?

Abraham was well qualified for the Priesthood, out of all those in his bloodline. (Genesis 11) and Melchizedek was sharp as a tact! He lived long enough to see Abraham & Isaac through their lifetimes, and to know Isaac’s sons.

Who has GOD sent to cover your lifespan with His Word? To call those things that be not in your life? To cover you while you travel the path of destiny? May they proclaim you to be the seed of Abraham, by the Word of My Righteous King!

Amen.
