  1. 'Where can I go that You, Lord, are not there?'

    When I was young I experienced many odd and fearful (and hurtful) things.
    Now that I'm going towards 70 years old, God has graciously been opening my eyes as He has shown me some pieces of the puzzle of my life and how they connect.

    As a child I'd see "shadows". I thought it was someone in the house or, once on our roof at night and I thought it was the neighbor's son with whom I'd always fight with.
    But they weren't.
    One shadow would walk in the hallway (lights turned on) of our house and stop at my bedroom door. I'd see the shadow through underneath my door. I thought someone was about to come in and hurt me.
    It just stood there. I was terrified. Then it walked away. This happened many times and I always wondered why that person never came in.
    As an adult I was telling a friend this and I said to him:
    I wonder why that person never came inside if I never locked my door because our house had had several attempted break-ins.
    Immediately after I said that, I heard myself say (it was the Holy Spirit):
    The door was unlocked from the inside,
    but locked on the outside.

    So.
    "Someone" made sure NO ONE opened that door. God sent an angel to hold that knob shut.

    Years later I was recollecting how at one apartment we had our daughter who slept with me, but mysteriously the light in her room started to turn on by itself. Her room was next to the only restroom so we could see underneath her bedroom door. It used to scare me at first but I eventually convinced myself that if it was a "bad spirit", it would have done something bad.
    Then just when I started accepting the light going on and off by itself, one night I saw a shadow walk across the door.
    It frightened me. All outside doors were locked and all the windows had bolted wrought iron bars.
    Then I started thinking I was just seeing things.
    But one night our daughter got up to go to the restroom and ran back into the room shaking and said:
    Someone is in my bedroom!
    I asked her:
    How do you know there's someone in there?
    She replied:
    I saw the light turn on from under the door and someone walked across on the inside of my room!
    I was frightened but in a way relieved that it was NOT my imagination.

    Up until this year did the Lord give me the wisdom:
    My childhood experiences with light and shadows was the same one as what happened in that apartment as a parent.

    What was it?
    Evil.
    There was a lot of evil in my parents home and my divorced ex was involved into the occult worse than my parents had been.

    There was another incident when I was at my parents and I was attending college.
    My parents' business was right to our house.
    One afternoon I was alone at home doing my homework at the dining table when I heard someone at the kitchen door.
    I assumed it was my mother coming in from the shop, but the knob kept making a noise.
    Mother had a key, so how could she not open it?
    I decided to go open the door for her but the door had a small window and I saw that it was not my mother.
    There was a hunched, old ( I assumed) woman, dressed in all black,with a black veil, working at trying to open the door.
    She scared me and I looked down at the doorknob. It was not locked so I turned the lock quickly. I didn't say anything.
    After a few minutes, she turned around and walked away.
    She (I assume it was a "she", also) never looked up.
    I was extremely relieved she left.
    I told my mother about it later and asked if that woman had gone to the shop but my mother said she hadn't.

    "Where can I go that You, Lord, are not there?"

    Thank You, Lord!
    In Jesus' Mighty Name!
    Amen!!!

  3. This is the Truth in regards to the One and ONLY Aluah (Hebrew for Almighty One), the Creator of heaven and earth and of mankind and of all things, YAHUAH !!! The Sacred Name that He himself proclaimed to Moses on Mount Sinai which the pagans have tried to cover up and replace with titles such as “Lord” or “Lord God” over 7000 times in the bible, titles which were used for babylonian false gods (ba’al). His Name is the biggest revelation in the whole Torah (True Word and Law of YAHUAH) and it is the first Commandment given to us as an eternal memorial to know and address our One Creator by His True Name YAHUAH and not by pagan titles!! He clearly says to not take His name to vain !! (3rd Commandment). The other most crucial Truth which they have tried to twist and pervert with their lies and through which they have deceived people into praising the beast is the name of our Glorious Messiah the Son of YAHUAH and his true biblical name is Yahusha (the name His Father in heaven gave him not men, as the original hebrew text shows us) not jesus christ!! Yahusha (YAHUAH-yasha) translates as YAHUAH is Salvation! Because he would come in the name of the Father in heaven to bring His Salvation!! The name “jesus christ” does not embody the Father’s name but something completely else!! It was created by emperor costantine at the council of nicea in an attempt to bring unification to the roman empire by bringing all the pagan gods who were being worshipped at distant parts of the empire (all names of Tammuz the babylonian false god, the names simply changed after being dispersed from the tower of babel) into this one false image of the Messiah who could be accepted by all pagans unified by a false “universal religion”. The many pagan names were narrowed down to the most worshiped and influental of the time, hesus (druid false god), horus (egyptian false god), and krishna (eastern false god) which later evolved into jesus h. christ. (See https://www.sabbathcovenant.com/doctrine/hesus_krishna.htm and https://boatrvgroup.com/sabbathcovenant/christianitythegreatdeception/newgodcreated.htm The first letters of these three names in greek chi, xi and sigma are actually the letters which were shown to John in revelation to be the symbol of the beast and they were added together in a numerical value in error by the translators which would make for the number 666 hence the misconception that this number is the symbol of the beast ( see https://sabbathcovenant.com/newdoctrine/jesus_christ_is_the_antichrist.htm ). In light of this new false religion and false image of the Messiah was also changed the Set-Apart 7th Day Shabbat of YAHUAH (4th Eternal Commandment!!) to “sunday” offering worship to their babylonian pagan trinity sungod! Christianity carries all the babilonian pagan customs and doctrines to this day and has deceived so many people with its false trinity and incarnation doctrines (The heavenly Father is One he is not a trinity!!) its pagan holydays and day of worship (not the true ordained feasts of our Creator commanded in The Torah) its false teachings about the Law (the Law was not done away with at the “cross” (which was actually a tree)! Yahusha our Messiah the Son of the Almighty said so himself!- Matthew 5:18. The decrees demanding our death for disobedience were. We are to be obedient to the Commandments of our Father just like Yahusha our Master said we should! John 13:15-17, Matthew 7:21-23) and its false image of the Messiah (the beast in disguise) which puts the glory of YAHUAH the One True Creator at the name of the evil one!! I’m not asking you to believe me or agree with me i’m inviting you to investigate and seek the Truth for yourself because the end days are upon us! I’ll share two websites that have a LOT of information regarding The Truth of our Heavenly Father: “www.promotethetruth.com” “www.sabbathcovenant.com” and some youtube channels which dive on these topics: “Parable of the Vineyard”, “YAHUSHA KING”, “The Sabbath Covenant”, “Hidden One of YAH”, “Messenger Of The Name”. Whoever has a heart for the Truth let them hear! Seek YAHUAH the One and Only Living Aluah and His True Word!!

  4. Amen God is everywhere .There is no place to hide from God or lie He knows what you going to say before it come out it best to ask forgiveness. It better to keep a relationship with Him than to go backwards. Come to Jesus Christ Lord Savior He will wipe all your sin away .

  5. A proper fear of the Lord brings joy when you're in His presence, and helps make His desires for your life clearer.
    Sin is never worth it. When you recall that Christ's eyes are upon you and within you, searching your heart and its reins, it's not because He's some 'Celestial North Korean Dictator' (as some who do not want Him to be real caricature Him to be), but rather because He's a loving and holy Father, seeking to draw you nearer to Him.

    Picture the love you have for one of the people on this earth most dear to you. Perhaps a spouse, or sibling, or a parent or near friend. Do you have joy in their presence? When they have criticism for you, is it because they love you and want you to live better and more happily?

    How much moreso Christ, Who loved us enough to die for us?

    I've a long way to go, but He is worthy.
