Yahweh gave me this message to share with my assembly and the Assembly around the world, during our time of worship:
"I have given you supernatural hands and a supernatural mind to do and to work the works of God.
Do not waste your time working in the ways of this world.
For it is as though the way of the world is working with play-dough, with children's clay. It is easy to mold, any child can do it and it takes no training. Yet it lacks any permanence and even the slightest touch will mar and destroy its form.
But the way of faith is like working with molten steel. The mold must be made first, before the work is done. Only adults can do this work, and it takes training. When the steel is poured, then the final product is permanent and stands against all interference.
So it is in the flesh and the spirit. Any child in spirit can work the way of the flesh, but only adults in spirit can work the way of faith.
I have given you the ability to form God's will in your life through faith. As you see by faith what you desire, planning it in the spirit as with the steel mold, then My Spirit and My perfect Power will descend as molten steel and create My Will. It shall stand against anything.
So choose to work the way of faith, the way of fully-grown adults in spirit, though it takes more strength and knowledge—for the results will last forever."
After receiving this word I began to see its depth later in the day.
God wants us to realize that living by faith can be difficult. It takes work to create what we desire according to His will before we see it come to pass in the natural world.
As with the steel molds, we have to form it in our minds as we see by faith what we desire from Yahweh. It can be hard to hold onto this image as we pray, trusting for it to come to pass. But if we do not give up, it will be finished.
Indeed, living by faith can be dangerous in the flesh. It can cause us to go without needful things at times, or to endure persecution or criticism, just like working with molten steel can be dangerous. But God has given us supernatural hands to work with it.
Those who work with play-dough really have no praise for their labor. Any simple person, including children, can form something from the clay; but it serves no purpose other than to amuse, and it will not last under life's stresses.
The finished work of steel lasts forever in comparison. So do the works of faith that we complete through "seeing the unseen" and continuing to trust God until it comes to pass.
Don't be a child and continue to waste your time with the pursuits of the flesh; they have no real value other than fleeting amusement. But the work of a spiritual adult, living and working in faith, will bring all manner of good to both yourself and those around you.
As you read this site, you will hopefully come to know Yahweh more fully.
But all of this continuing knowledge is useless unless and until you come into union with Him. I use the word union because it is truly a marriage. It is that deep connection we all seek, for which we most often look in other people. However, the truth is that our hearts will only be fulfilled when we enter that union in fullness with the One Who made us.
This is the grace of God, that He has not stayed distant for us only to worship as Creator. But He has come unto us, even become one of us—in His Son, ChristJesus—in order to share an intimate union with us. He desires such closeness that it truly will envelope our entire life, transforming us into something new and wonderful.
You may have already entered this union with Him and only seek to know Him better through reading here. But if you have not, as you do read, let this Gospel sink into your heart as you read it now.
God loves you, and has cast your sins into the sea. He has sent His only Son as the Savior of the world—that includes you.
That Son, JesusChrist, was born as a man through a virgin who had given her life to Yahweh; He lived without sin, reflected the glory of His Father, God, in all His words and deeds, and was persecuted even unto death because of it.
His death upon a cross was the powerful explosion that separated you from your life of death. It remains for you, now, to enter into that death with Him. As you die to the one you are now, a person separated from God from your many sins, you will be born anew, with a nature predisposed to live rightly. This gift is free to you, with nothing you can do to earn it. It is the mercy of God to offer it to you, as He loves you so much! All you must do is receive it by trusting Him to have delivered you. Simply place your life in His hands and embrace the freedom that came through that death on the cross.
The Gospel is that Jesus did not remain dead, but rose again on the third day after His crucifixion! Death could not hold Him, as He was without sin. And so death will not be able to hold you, as you identify with Him fully through your trust in Him. Let go of yourself and confess Him as Lord of your life. The power of His death and resurrection will work in you all that your Creator has destined for you. You will truly enter a new life and experience that intimate union you have been seeking all of your life.
So ponder these words as you read here of this great God—Yahweh—and all that He has revealed to His creation. Let His Spirit testify to your heart that these words are true, that God is Love, and that He sent His Son so that you might receive the life that is unbound by time and space. As you feel that witness in your heart, simply believe and receive what He is offering to you, even now, and begin your new life as a child of God.
Please write to me and let me know when you take this step, as I will be your brother in Christ—we will be one in Him!
