Awake And Sing

    Home Back


Isaiah 26:19: Your dead shall live; Together with my dead body (Messiah Christ Jesus) they shall arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust; for your dew is like the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.


How awesome! The dew of our Eternal God’s favor sprouts the herbs that lay buried in the earth in springtime. So will those dead souls buried in the dust awaken and sing with joy at the sight of our Lord God. These are the souls that sincerely express their love for their Eternal Creator (Deuteronomy 6:5) as well as love of all their brethren as themselves (see Matthew 5:44).  


Daniel 12:2-3:  And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake. Some to everlasting life, some to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever. ** Together with my dead body (Messiah, Christ Jesus) many will arise and work with the Incarnate to destroy the work of the devil. They will shine as One (Deuteronomy 6:4 and 1 Corinthians 8:4- 6).  ** Acts 17:28: For in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said: For we are also His offspring.


John 16:2-3: They will put you out of the synagogues; yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers God service. And these things they will do to you because they have not known the Father nor Me.  ** Many know the saying: To be forewarned it to be forearmed. This is how our Messiah, Yeshua Christ Jesus alerted his disciples just prior to His sacrificial death as the Lamb of God. The word forewarned is translated from the Greek word proginosko 4267 meaning foreknow, foreknowledge as the apostle Peter spoke in 2 Peter 3:17: You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked… ** These words of love are to prepare us to not go astray. Most of this evil world is led by the devil and his many zealous teachers and preachers that claim love and think they are righteous in the eyes of our Lord God.


1 John 4:8: He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. ** Our Eternal Lord continues to love everything and every soul He has created. He knows many have been misled by false teachers that infiltrated the Church of God during the times of His apostles. The spirit of the devil and his apostasy against the coming Kingdom grows stronger daily. The devils kingdom preaches love by greed, lies, self-pleasure and hate. These ingredients create a cascade of chaos and never ending lack of peace until the soon return of Messiah to salvage the true possessions that love as He loves (see Deuteronomy 7:7-8). Only then will this wicked world of the devil be fully at peace as the angel of the lord admonished Joshua in Zechariah.


Zechariah 3:7: Thus says the Lord of hosts: If you will walk in My ways, and if you will keep My command, then you shall also judge My house, and likewise have charge of My courts; I will give you places to walk among those who stand here.  ** Verse 10: In that day, says the Lord of hosts, everyone will invite his neighbor under his vine and under his fig tree.

In chapter 3 of Zechariah, Joshua, was seemingly holy and righteous with guilt and corruption. He was the designated high priest accused by Satan. Satan, the devil stood next to the angel of the Lord to oppose the children’s leader. ** Verse 2: And the Lord said to Satan: The Lord rebuke you, Satan! The Lord (Christ) who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?  ** As herds of cattle receive a brand to designate ownership, so was Joshua branded as a branch of our Eternal Lord. Although seemingly holy and righteous, Joshua as well as all mankind is as a filthy rag ** Isaiah 64:6: But we are all like an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags; We all fade as a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. ** When we do right in love by keeping all our Lord God’s commandments as described in Exodus, chapter 20, Deuteronomy chapter 5 and Leviticus, chapter 23, we also can be plucked from the fire.


Zechariah 3:4: Then He answered and spoke to those who stood before Him saying. Take away the filthy garments from him. And to him He said: See, I have removed your iniquity from you and I will clothe you with rich robes.  ** For any person to have his iniquity/sins removed, he must be a doer of our Eternal God’s love like Joshua by doing his commandments of love as mentioned in the previous paragraph and bottom line. In addressing my students, I have told them that I believe the ceiling or walls are white. I also believe the sky is blue and the moon is yellow for this is a surety of my vision. However, a surety of spiritual belief is not visual. The Hebrew word ‘aman 539 meaning belief, believe, faith and trust are synonymous (alike in meaning) and mentioned about 50 times in the OT.  The Greek word belief is pisteuo 4100 is mentioned about 250 times in the NT.  Abraham was a doer of God’s commands and granted righteousness in Genesis.


Genesis 15:6: And he believed in the Lord, and HE accounted it to him for righteousness. Moses was disobedient in the book of Numbers and not allowed to enter into the Promised Land. Numbers 20:11-12: Then Moses lifted his hand and struck the rock twice with his rod; and water came out abundantly, and the congregation and their animals drank. Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron: Because you did not believe ME, to hallow ME in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.


James 1:25: But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty (Ten Commandments) and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does. ** Verse 20: For the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God. Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your soul. ** James 2:8: If you really fulfill the royal law (Ten Commandments) according to the Scripture, You shall love your neighbor as yourself, you do well. ** Keep your faith, belief and trust but above all show your love for your Eternal God by keeping HIS commandments.


Be a doer and be blessed until we meet again!
