The Rut

Genesis 3:14-15: NKJV: So the Lord God said to the serpent: Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all cattle, and more than every beast of the field; on your belly you shall go, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life. And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed (the Messiah, Christ Jesus). HE (Christ) shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise HIS heel.

 

From the very beginning our Eternal Father foresaw the need to provide eternal life for some of HIS creation. ** Isaiah 7:14: Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a SON, and shall call HIS name Immanuel (Hebrew for: God with us). **Deuteronomy 18:18: I will raise up for them a Prophet like you (Moses) from among their brethren, and will put MY words in HIS mouth, and HE shall speak to them all that I command HIM. Verse 14-15: For these nations which you will dispossess listen to soothsayers and diviners; but as for you, the Lord your God has not appointed such for you. The Lord your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren. Him (Messiah) you shall hear.

 

This evil world continues to listen to soothsayers and diviners and not hear the words of eternal life spoken by this Eternal earthborn Prophet. After death HE became mingled with the Father to become part of the Eternal One God of heaven and earth. HIS birthplace is prophesied by the Prophet Micah before the exile of northern Israel in 722 B.C. ** Micah 5:2: But you Bethlehem Eph’ra-thah, through you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out you shall come forth to ME the One to be Ruler in Israel, whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting (Immanuel, God with us).

 

Luke 2:4-5: Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is call Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary his betrothed ( promised to marry) wife, who was with child (Fathered by the Spirit of God HIMSELF). Luke 1:35: And the angel answered and said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you,; therefore, also that HOLY ONE who is to be born will be called the Son of God. ** Praise the One Lord God for starting HIS soon coming kingdom on earth to build a family of the Holy One God, Creator of heaven and earth becoming the purpose of HIS birth.

 

Isaiah 53:4:6: Surely HE has borne our grief’s (sicknesses) and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed HIM stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But HE was wounded for our transgressions, HE was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by HIS stripes (blows that cut deep, shedding blood) we are healed. All (every born soul) we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way; and the Lord has laid on HIM the iniquity of us all.

 

1 Peter 2:24-25: Who Himself bore our sins in HIS own body (Holy Lamb of God) on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness--- by whose stripes (life giving blood for atonement) you were healed. For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls. ** ‘God with us’ HIMSELF was the Passover Lamb to and Holy Shepherd to pay the penalty for mankind’s sins. **Matthew7:14: Because narrow (meaning trouble) is the gate (to the Kingdom) and difficult (confined) is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. ** Mankind within this evil world which is controlled by the temporary god (the devil). Since the Garden of Eden, man continues to seek an easy way into the soon coming Kingdom. The Al Chet (confession and prayer for Repentance) will be said ten times at Yom Kippur Services (Day of Atonement) in synagogues throughout the world. The commanded Holy Day begins this year at sundown, October 7, 2011.  Only the Jews, Messianic Jews and a few Christians observe this eternal command of the Eternal Lord God: Leviticus 23:31-32: You shall do no manner of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. It shall be to you a Sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict your souls (fast) of the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you shall celebrate your Sabbath.   ** Nearly every born soul (life) born on this earth continues going astray like sheep, every one, to his own way of thought and worship instead of turning to follow the Shepherd of God and overseer of your souls. The devil has betrayed our Lord and continues to teach his lies.  His many false prophets seek only riches of this evil world instead of glory of life forever our Lord God desires to give you.

 

Zechariah 11:12-13: Then I said to them, If it is agreeable to you, give me my wages, and if not, refrain, So they weighed out for my wages thirty pieces of silver. And the Lord said to me: Throw it to the potter --- that princely price they set on me. So I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw them into the house of the Lord for the potter (potter’s field for burial of strangers * Matthew 27:7-10). ** Zechariah 13:6: And one will say to HIM: What are these wounds between your arms (or hands)? Then HE (Messiah) will answer: Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.

 

Psalm 16:9-11: Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; my flesh also will rest in hope. For YOU will not leave my soul in She’ol (death). Nor will you allow YOUR Holy One (Messiah, Christ Jesus) to see corruption. YOU will show me the path of life; in YOUR presence is fullness of joy; at YOUR right hand are pleasures forevermore.  ** The pleasures of mankind are to live within the rut of life. Some of you may remember the Model T Ford which drove along the country roads of dirt? When it rained the tires became entrenched in a rut along the road path of dirt. Driving was easy in the rut for steering was not necessary. The problem came when the driver wanted to turn and could not for the rut continued past the right turn to his destination/home. The rut of life is to turn rightly to God and follow the path of the Holy Bible instructions and the Holy Commandments of love (Leviticus 23:2-41, Exodus, chapter 20). ** Acts 2:30-31: Therefore, being a prophet (King David), and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his body, according to the flesh, HE would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne, he, foreseeing this spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that HIS soul was not left in Hades (She’ol, death). Verse 38-39: Then Peter said to them, repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (after the laying on of hands). For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call. ** This evil world is in a deep rut and does not know how to get out. Seek the Lord now and repent wherever you are! Tomorrow may be too late to get out of the rut which is as deep as the pit of death!  If you are willing, you can escape the rut of life from this crooked/perverse generation!                                                              Be blessed until we meet again!
