The Fear of Yahweh

(This doesn’t mean that we have to be afraid of Yahweh)
 
 
 

The Fear of Yahweh

The first thing that Yahweh imparted to me when I got close to Yahweh, was a desire to have a Fear of Yahweh.  So, that prompted me to find out what is a Fear of Yahweh?

And that question drew me to go to Yahweh’s word, and I ended up finding Psalm 34:7.  I kept reading and Psalm 34:9 stuck out… and then verse 7, 8, 9, 11, 17, & 19… and I’ll come back to that.  But, then Yahweh led me to the teachings of John Bevere, so I’ll share what John taught me first.

 
 
 
 

Yahweh will never come to a place where he’s not held with the utmost Respect… John Bevere

 

Psalm 89:7
Yahweh is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, And to be held in reverence by all those around Him.
 You will never experience intimacy with Yahweh without this foundation.  Yahweh is to be held in reverence by all those around him.  You will never find Yahweh in an atmosphere where he is not held with the utmost of reverence. .. John Bevere

Leviticus 10:1
Then Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, each took his censer and put fire in it, put incense on it, and offered profane fire before Yahweh, which He had not commanded them.
Profane, (some translations call this strange fire, but the best definition is “Profane”).  To treat what is sacred as common, or to treat what is Holy as ordinary, to lightly esteem, irreverence.

Leviticus 10:2:
So fire went out from Yahweh and devoured them, and they died before Yahweh.

Leviticus 10:3
And Moses said to Aaron, “This is what Yahweh spoke, saying:

By those who come near Me

I MUST be Regarded as Holy;
    And before all the people
I MUST be Glorified
    So Aaron held his peace.

 
 
 
 
 

There are two kinds of presence of Yahweh.  There is the Omni-Presence,
(Psalm 139:7-8, Where can I go… but U R There…).

But, there is also the Manifest Presence of Yahweh.  And to have the manifest presence of Yahweh, we MUST regard Yahweh as Holy by having a Fear of Yahweh.
    The manifestation of the Fear of Yahweh has these five coinciding characteristics:
    • Instant Obedience
    • Obedience when it doesn’t make sense
    • Obedience when it hurts.
    • Obedience when you don’t see the benefits
    • Obedience to completion.

There were two men in the Bible that were called the Friend of Yahweh…  Abraham & Moses, {Isaiah 41:8,
Exodus 33:11}.

Yahweh was about to destroy Sodom & Lot lived in Sodom.  Lot was said to be righteous. 2 Peter 2:7.  However, Lot even though righteous was about to have his city wiped out and he did not know it.  He wasn’t a friend of Yahweh and Yahweh did not manifest his presence with him and show him his secrets.

 
 
 
 
 

Psalm 25:14

The secret of Yahweh is with those who fear Him…
or

Friendship with Yahweh is reserved for those who fear him.

Abraham on the other hand, was called Yahweh’s friend, (James 2:21-24).  And Yahweh said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing”, (Genesis 18:17). 

Two Righteous men living in the same time period.  One whose city that he lived in was about to be destroyed by Yahweh, had not a clue, while the other Yahweh was chasing him.

This friendship that Yahweh had with Abraham started in Genesis 22:2 when Abraham was commanded to go and sacrifice his only son of the promise, “In Isaac your seed shall be called”, {Genesis 21:12}, {Abraham believed Yahweh would raise him from the dead and still fulfill his promise~ Hebrews 11:17-19}, and we read in Genesis 22:3, “So Abraham rose early the next morning”..

How many times have we heard folks say, “I heard Yahweh tell me to do something six months ago”… and yet they still have not done the thing that Yahweh told them to do.  That’s not a Fear of Yahweh. 

And look how Yahweh responded to Abraham’s actions in Genesis 22:12, “for now I know that you fear and revere God”

 
 
 
 
 

 

A Friend of Yahweh?

 

Are you a Friend of Yahweh, (God)?  Does Yahweh reveal his secrets with you?  If not it is because you do not have a Fear of Yahweh.

 

 

Bow your head right now and say this prayer.

Father, I repent of not having a Fear of Yahweh.  I ask to you reveal yourself to me and to show me where I have put idols up in your place.  To show me where I have allowed rebellion to come in and crowd you out.

 

 

Psalm 97:10 (NIV)

    Let those who love Yahweh hate evil,
    for he guards the lives of his faithful ones
    and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.

 
 
 
 
Psalm 34:1-22

A Psalm of David when he pretended madness before Abimelech,
who drove him away, and he departed.

  • 1 I will bless Yahweh at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
  • 2 My soul shall make its boast in Yahweh; the humble shall hear of it and be glad.
  • 3 Oh, magnify Yahweh with me, and let us exalt His name together.
  • 4 I sought Yahweh, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.
  • 5 They looked to Him and were radiant, and their faces were not ashamed.
  • 6 This poor man cried out, and Yahweh heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.
  • 7 The angel of Yahweh encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them.
  • 8 Oh, taste and see that Yahweh is good;  Blessed is the man who trusts in Him~!
  • 9 Oh, fear Yahweh, you His saints!  There is no want to those who fear Him.
  • 10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger;  But those who seek Yahweh shall not lack any good thing.
  • 11 Come, you children, listen to me;  I will teach you the Fear of Yahweh.
  • 12 Who is the man who desires life, and loves many days, that he may see good?
  • 13 Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking deceit.
  • 14 Depart from evil and do good;  Seek peace and pursue it.
  • 15 The eyes of Yahweh are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry.
  • 16 The face of Yahweh is against those who do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
  • 17 The righteous cry out, and Yahweh hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles.
  • 18 Yahweh is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit.
  • 19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but Yahweh delivers him out of them all.
  • 20 He guards all his bones; not one of them is broken.
  • 21 Evil shall slay the wicked, and those who hate the righteous shall be condemned.
  • 22 Yahweh redeems the soul of His servants, and none of those who trust in Him shall be condemned.
 
 
 

Psalm 19:9

  • The Fear of Yahweh is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of Yahweh are true and righteous altogether.

Proverbs 29:25

  • The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in Yahweh shall be safe


Proverbs 29:25 says about the same thing as Psalm 34:1-22.  I really think that the Fear of Yahweh is important for our success.  I would define Faith as believing Yahweh’s word would do what he said that it will do, (this is more like a revealed word that you hear directly from Yahweh also called by the Greek name for “word”, ~ Rhema, as compared with a written word of Yahweh also called in the Greek Logos/, and requires an action, a work).

However, I would define “A Fear of Yahweh” as a trust that what Yahweh wrote will work for you.  My best example is where Yahweh says, “You just don’t understand that Adultery will destroy your soul, (mind, will & emotions ~ ability to reason, your intellect, whether you are decisive or indecisive ~ stable or unstable).

 
 
 

This can be found at Proverbs 6:32

  • Whoever commits adultery with a woman lacks understanding; He who does so destroys his own soul.

You see the reason Yahweh is not wanting us to commit adultery is for our own benefit.  Adultery will destroy our soul, (our mind, our will, our emotions ~ our ability to make decisions without our emotions confusing us).

Later on, the wise Solomon who got his wisdom from Yahweh specifically for leading the people of Yahweh, says “That the integrity of the upright will guide them, But the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them”, (Proverbs 1:3).  A man is led by the integrity of his heart and if your heart has some junk in it, they’ll come out at the most inappropriate time.

However, I can be out and out rebellious and say I don’t want no part of that.  Or I can excuse my lusting after women, but, until I have a “Fear of Yahweh” meaning a reverence for what he is saying, then I am double-minded.

It would be like me telling you that the best way to drive to a certain designation is to go down a particular highway.  But, if you don’t trust my judgments, (and after all, I am only a man), then you might decide to go up what a appears to be a short-cut, only to discover too late that this is a two-lane road with slow tractors, looking directly into the sun heading east in the morning, and looking into the sun heading west in the evening.  It doesn’t mean that I would be mad at you if you went this route, but you would not benefit from my advice.

 
 
 

On the other hand, suppose we go and look up all the benefits of having a “Fear of Yahweh” in Proverbs, and decide that even if we can’t understand it, that we will follow as Yahweh leads, and the next time our eye starts to wander to look at women, “We say, whoa, I want to have a Fear of Yahweh, and if Yahweh says not to do this, then that settles it for me, (after all, Yahweh has only good purposes for me, and he knows what is best for my life).

All my needs are met in Christ Yahoshua, and actually allowing our needs to be met through lust, just short-changes us from finding that out, and hides the fact that there really is something to intimacy with with our spouse~!

But, Yahweh does have plan for you, and here’s the way you get it done.  You find out what Yahweh says about a situation and then you believe that, and start saying it out loud, and fully persuading your heart, and once your heart is convinced, then faith takes over and it’s a job complete.

So, let me give some quick scripture references on the truth of Yahweh’s word.  For you shall know the truth, and the truth makes you free, (John 8:32).

I like to use this as a barrier warding off sexual temptations.  Proverbs 5:19; & Matthew 19:5.  Same numbers, just in a different order, and actually you will have to start with Proverbs 4:18-19 & Matthew 19:4-5 to get the whole picture, but these memory joggers will get you pointed in the right direction. 

Just read these verses over and over to yourself everyday for awhile, and the next time you see a pretty girl, say out loud, (if ogling from your car), “My wife’s bosom satisfies me at all times, and I am enthroned by HER love.

 
 
 
Yahweh said in Mark 4:24 that the more time that you spend meditating over and over again the same passage or verse that the more understanding Yahweh will reveal about that passage.  Mark 4:24 ~ Then He said to them, “Take heed what you hear.   With the same measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given. 

Proverbs 8:35 says “For whoever finds me finds life, And obtains favor from Yahweh.   So Yahweh is worth finding, cause when you find Yahweh you find Life.” But, how do you find Yahweh?  Proverbs 8:17 gives us a clue.   “I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me”, and Jeremiah 29:13 gives us another clue, “And you will seek Me and find [Me,] when you search for Me with all your heart.” Seek Yahweh with all your heart, and you shall know him, and hear his voice all the time.

Proverbs 2:1-6 “My son or daughter, if you receive my words, And treasure my commands within you, So that you incline your ear to wisdom, [And] apply your heart to understanding; Yes, if you cry out for discernment, [And] lift up your voice for understanding, If you seek her as silver, And search for her as [for] hidden treasures; Then you will understand the fear of Yahweh, And find the knowledge of Yahweh.   For Yahweh gives wisdom; From His mouth [come] knowledge and understanding” (Amplified Bible)

How would you like to Make the Right Decision Every Time?

Look at this passage taken from “The Living Bible".

Proverbs 2:9-10

He shows how to distinguish right from wrong, how to make the right decision every time.   For wisdom and truth will enter the very center of your being, filling your life with joy.
 
 
 
Have you ever misplaced an important item in your home?  And then when you look for it, you can’t find it.  You begin to search through the file cabinet, and through books, and finally you search through the file cabinet one more time, and then start all over at the whole house.  And when you find it, “Whew, what a sigh of relief.”  That is the manner in which we are to seek after the heart of Yahweh on every matter.  Take a look at these verse below to see if I’m not telling the truth.

Proverbs 2:9-10, (The Living Bible).
1 Every young man who listens to me and obeys my instructions will be given wisdom and good sense.   3, 4, 5 Yes, if you want better insight and discernment, and are searching for them as you would for lost money or hidden treasure, then wisdom will be given you, and knowledge of Yahweh himself; you will soon learn the importance of reverence for Yahweh and of trusting Him.   6 For Yahweh grants wisdom!  His every word is a treasure of knowledge and understanding.   7, 8 He grants good sense to the godly—his saints.  His is their shield, protecting them and guarding their pathway.

9 He shows how to distinguish right from wrong, how to make the right decision every time.   10 For wisdom and truth will enter the very center of your being, filling your life with joy. 

It comes out of your heart.  As you believe, so you are.  If you believe that you are prosperous, then prosperity happens.
 
 
 
I heard a remarkable presentation the other morning from a pastor preaching about having a Fear of Yahweh, and who is the real authority, and what submission is really all about taken from Romans 13:1-7, and from Hebrews 5:1-9.  Boy, I wish I had that message on cassette, so I could listen to it over and over again.

But, since I didn’t have a cassette recorder, I had to ‘listen up’ as intently as I could.  I had to hearken.  I’m not sure that “we all” that were there, got the message.  If “Y’all” is a contraction of “You ALL”, then “W’all” might have been a contraction of “We All”.  We seemed to have had a “Wall” put up that made us want to always view authority and submission as outside of Yahweh, (we have been desirous of milk only ~ Hebrews 5:11-14, Amplified Bible).

However; the key factor is to find out if we have a wall up against Yahweh’s authority, and rather than cling to our independent, controlling rebellious state, desire earnestly to be submitted to Yahweh’s authority in all that we do, and walk in His blessings.

I believe that we are now beginning to cross over from our old patterns of thinking, and forget the old paradigm, or old mind-set about what we used to believe was the fear of Yahweh.  I like the word “paradigm best as it conveys that we theorize with all our heart that one way of thinking to be true, but in fact it is not the truth.  I think that we have this paradigm, or old way of thinking~mind-set about the Fear of Yahweh.  I believe that we as a body of Christ will begin to understand what the Fear of Yahweh really is. 
 
 
 
A Fear of Yahweh is to begin to fervently revere Yahweh’s word as coming from Yahweh himself as the ultimate authority.  I can define a Fear of Yahweh better, by describing what it’s not.  Here’s what I see as a Fear of Yahweh.

A while back, I received a computer monitor as a gift from someone I know.  I was busy reaching over the screen trying to connect the wiring, with my stomach clothed by my shirt pressing against the glass.  I heard Yahweh tell me to stop, and to work on the monitor from the side, instead of the glass touching my stomach.  Well, there were obstacles in the way if I went to the side, and besides I am almost done.

When I had completed the task, and sat down in front of the screen, I noticed a scar on the screen that had not been there before.  I said to myself and to Yahweh, “What happened to have caused this”.  After pondering this for a while, I finally came to conclude that it was the button on the front of my shirt, and I stood up, and one of my buttons aligned directly to the disfigurement on the screen.

My stomach rubbing against the screen had caused a scratch mark; my flesh had gotten in the way.  I realized at once that why Yahweh had said to me to go to the side of the monitor.  I still have the blemish on the screen.  It makes me remorseful that I disobeyed Yahweh.  I didn’t mean to disobey the Voice of Yahweh.  I just thought I knew more than Yahweh knew.  I didn’t say that, but I acted as if what Yahweh said was a nice suggestion from a child, and I with my vast knowledge of experience knew so much more than what Yahweh knew.

 
 
 
Then on another week, while tightening a bolt with a ratchet, I heard Yahweh direct me to put on my work gloves.  Again, I thought I knew better than what Yahweh was saying, and so I did not put them on.

In just a few seconds later, I cut my finger, against a protruding bolt.  I immediately asked Yahweh why did he not warn me about that.  Yahweh’s response was, “I told you to put on gloves”.  I was taken back.  I did not have a Fear of Yahweh.  I did not reverently fear what Yahweh had told me.  I did not revere the Word of Yahweh, to hold His words as final authority.

I am now making myself stop whenever I hear the Word of Yahweh, and I know it’s him, as I am His sheep and his sheep know His voice.  Notice, I didn’t say, “This is the devil telling me to put gloves on”.  I knew His voice, so why didn’t I obey?  I thought that I knew much better than Yahweh.  I didn’t say that, but my actions spoke for me.  I ignored Yahweh’s voice.

I never want to do that anymore.  I am exhausted at my own understanding of doing things.  I want His way of doing and being right from now on.  Matthew 6:33 from the Amplified Bible, says “But seek, (aim at and strive after) first of all His Kingdom and His righteousness, (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides”.

 
 
 
Even so, this very morning, I took out the trash container, and also the recycled bin to the street, and later watched as the sanitation worker emptied the recycle bin into recycle truck.  As soon as the bin was emptied into the truck, I went out to go get the bin, but I heard Yahweh say, “Wait”.

Again, I reasoned to my own understanding, and decided that I did not want the bin to be left out in the cold weather to possibly crack, and so I went to get it in my jean shorts, undershirt and red bedroom shoes.

Just as I got the bin back inside my garage, I heard another trash truck coming by to empty the trash container.  So, I had to once more walk back to the street to retrieve the trash can, and a neighbor came out and spotted me.  I sensed in my heart she had spotted me the first time also, and I felt that I had become something of a laughing stock, and it might make it harder to try to win her to Yahweh and I could have saved one more trip had I been obedient.

Why am I so rebellious to the voice of Yahweh?  If ever I were to say, “Woe is me, I am undone” it would be because of my recent choices to go with my thoughts, rather than the Voice of Yahweh.

I feel like King David must have felt, even though I have repented of my not taking the Voice of Yahweh to heart, but as I looked upon my computer monitor that I had for the next several years…saying my sin is ever before me.

 
 
 
Yahweh showed me right there, that it was this same prompting of the Holy Ghost, this same urging from the Holy Ghost that people ignore, and get into car wrecks, and sometimes die.  Sometimes these folks are maimed in the car wrecks, and sometimes the car wrecks hurt others.  I’ll bet these folks also wish that they had obeyed the Voice of Yahweh.  Right now, I wish that screen didn’t have a scar on the screen.  But, even more than that, I wish I had obeyed the Voice of Yahweh.

This computer will one day burn, as it is temporary.  But, my choices that I make have eternal ramifications.  Yahoshua is Lord!  Yahoshua is Lord!  Yahoshua is Lord!  I want to acknowledge that Yahoshua is Lord in all my ways of doing and being right.  I renew my mind, transforming my life from living like the world, to living like Yahoshua wants me to live.  The cut on my finger has become healed.  But the cut on my heart remains open.  I do not want to be in car wreck.  I do not want someone to get hurt in a car wreck because I did not hearken to the Voice of Yahweh.

But, to avoid these horrible things from happening and becoming a reality in my life, I must first begin to hearken to the Voice of Yahweh.  This is my conclusion that I draw on from Proverbs 4:20-24, (Especially Proverbs 4:23).
  • 20 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings.
  • 21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart;
  • 22 For they [are] life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.
  • 23 Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it [spring] the issues of life
  • 24 Put away from thee a forward, (deceitful), mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.  (Amplified Bible)
 
 
 
I base this on this four-fold revelation, that I got from Mark 4:20.

My son, {or it could be daughter}, (this lets you know that this is your father talking, and your father wants what is best for you)

Give Attention to my words.  Pay attention to Detail here.

Incline your ear to my sayings…   Let me illustrate.  Once my Father and two brothers and I were sitting on a sofa watching TV.  At that time we lived in a house about 100 yards from a railroad track.  The trains would come by and rattle our house until everything was shaking.  I mean it was overwhelming!  Whatnots would rattle off of shelves, and it was very intense.  At first we couldn’t even sleep…  but one learns to accommodate by adapting.  You can get used to the dark if you stay there long enough.

Well, the train came by, and my mother was trying to get our attention to let us know that supper was ready, (I’m from the South - that would be dinner if you’re from the North), Try as hard as she might, she barely got our attention.  The noise of the train was not even enough to bring us to react.  We had so tuned out the background noises, that we were oblivious to the world, and the shouts of my Mother also.  I wonder if we can do Yahweh that same way.
 
 
 
Okay, here is an example on the positive side.  Once, my brother-in-law had car problems.  He asked me to help him solve the problem.  I don’t know much about motor mechanics, but I had watched my father, and he always tilted his head back, and listened until he detected where the bad sound was coming from, and then he identified the bad part.

My father is an excellent motor mechanic, and I had watched him detect where the sound was for so long, that even though I knew little about auto repair, it just seemed natural for me to try to find the bad part by listening, like my Father had done.

So, I had to listen hard, but I could barely make out one sound that didn’t belong.  Clunking sound.  My Brother-in-Law was about to close the hood and call a repair shop, but I focused on that one sound, forcing myself to not hear anything else, and that drew me to one side of the car.  After listening a little while longer, I put my ear right down as close to the engine as I could, then I pointed to a part of the car and said, “That’s the problem”.

My Brother-in-Law replied, “That’s the water pump”.  I’m glad he knew what it was called.  My Brother-in-Law replaced the water pump, and everything worked fine.  I had correctly located the source of the car trouble without knowing how a car worked, but by listening only.

I did so, by inclining my ear…  My son, incline your ear to my words.  Not like the train, but fine-tune yourself to “Hearken” unto my words.

 
 
 
1 Samuel 15:22 says it best…  “And Samuel said, Has Yahweh [as great] delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of Yahweh?  Behold, to obey [is] better than sacrifice, [and] to hearken than the fat of rams.” (Amplified Bible)

The word Hearken used in this verse above comes from a Hebrew-Chaldee origin, and here is its definition: a primitive root; to prick up the ears, like a Deer in the Woods when it hears someone step on a Twig and making a Snapping Sound.  The Deer doesn’t just keep on grazing and ignore it.  It’s ears prick up, ready to go into flight~!

07181 - qashab {kaw-shab’} a primitive root; TWOT - 2084; v
AV - hearken 27, attend 10, heed 3, hear 2, incline 1, marked 1, regarded 1, mark well 1

1 To hear, be attentive, heed, incline (of ears), attend (of ears), hearken, pay attention, listen
1a (Qal) incline, attend (of ears), hearken, pay attention, listen
1b (Hiphil) to pay attention, give attention

As you can tell, it is translated more times as hearken than as “attend”, “heed”, “hear”, or “incline”.  However, the Strong’s Concordance number 07181, used here as hearken, is the same Strong’s Concordance number found in Proverbs 4:20 for the word “attend” or “incline”, (depending on the translation used).

The best way I can describe this word “hearken ~ incline” in our language is with what I heard from Bill Gothard as he described the way a deer is gazing about, and suddenly detects a sound or a noise.  The deer will stop abruptly.  His head will turn towards the sound, or noise and his ears will flair out.  If there were even the slightest noise to follow, that deer will be gone before you can say, “Where’d he go?”.  That’s attentive.  That’s inclining your ear.  That’s really paying attention.  This is how we should be towards a Fear of Yahweh.  Ever Listening, ready to act on a moment’s notice~!
 
 
 
Further illustration can be seen with a dog or a cat.  Notice that in the definition there was made mentioned, “of ears”, three times.  {incline (of ears), attend (of ears), attend (of ears)}.  This means to prick up the ears, much like a dog or a cow or a horse or a cat do, when a troublesome sound is heard.  They are stayed on alert, ready for flight if danger is present.

Hear once more Proverbs 4:20-21
  • 20 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings.
  • 21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart;

This means put them on your car, and also put them in your lunchbox.  Let your computer send Yahweh’s word across the screen as a screensaver.  Post them on index cards all over your house, your bathroom mirror, above your closet, in front of the toilet, on the visor of your car.  Make cross-stitches, and hang them in your living room around your television.  Listen to cassette tapes of the Old and the New Testaments.

 
 
 
We overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of our Testimony.  Let them not depart from your eyes.  Get some of Yahweh’s Word and some of the testimonies of old down into your heart.  Why?
  • 22 For they [are] life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.
  • 23 Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it [spring] the issues of life. 
  • 24 Put away from thee a forward, (deceitful), mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee. (Amplified Bible)

For they ARE LIFE!  Take Yahweh’s word for what it says. THEY ARE LIFE! Not, they are like life, or they help build life, but THEY ARE LIFE!!!!

…However a condition is set, they are only LIFE to those that find them~!

 
 
 
Matthew 4:4.  But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of Yahweh.’”

Luke 4:4.   But Yahoshua answered him, saying, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of Yahweh.’”.

I like to take Yahweh’s word literally.  Man SHALL NOT LIVE…  by bread alone.  Period.  End of story.  That’s it.  MAN SHALL NOT LIVE…  by bread alone, BUT by EVERY WORD OF YAHWEH.

I don’t just mean to limit that to the written word of Yahweh.  Yahoshua himself said, “And the Father Himself, who sent Me, has testified of Me.  You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His form.  But you do not have His word abiding in you, because whom He sent, Him you do not believe.  You search Yahweh’s Word, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me.  But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life, (John 5:37-40).

Yahweh’s words spoken to me by the Holy Ghost in the privacy of my heart are Life!

 
 
 
So how do I change?  What are Practical Applications of Yahweh’s word?

 Though I walk in the flesh, I do not warfare in the flesh.  Our weapons are the one that are mighty to Yahweh to the pulling down of strongholds and arguments, and imaginations, (1 Corinthians 10:2-5).  Strongholds are thoughts and patterns of thinking, mind-sets, and paradigms.  Even so, Yahweh told me that when His word says to guard my heart above all else, (Proverbs 4:20-24; Psalm 101:3-4), that we are to be careful for what we watch, what we see, and what we hear.

Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life, (Proverbs 4:24).

But what about those times when the enemy of Yahweh puts thought-bombs in our head, trying to get them into our heart, here is how we take thoughts captive.  We have to open our mouth.  Suppose, I were to tell you to start singing in your head, “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer”.  Please start singing this in your mind for a few verses, then come back to this writing… I’ll wait here.

Now, once more sing only to yourself on the inside of you, “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, but this time right in the middle of the song, say out loud, (and make sure that you say it out loud), say, “Yahoshua is my Lord forever more.   What happened?

Were you able to keep up in your mind where the song was?  Did your mind skip a word, and when you returned to your mind, did your mind pick up from where the song should have been, or did you go back to where you last left off the song?  I know that your mind had to stop, and pay attention to what your voice was saying.  This is how we take all thoughts captive.

 
 
 
We use our voice.  When the enemy comes in, like a flood of Yahweh’s Word flowing out of you, you stop and say what Yahweh has told you in his word.  By the way, why do we know all the words to “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, and “T’was the night Before Christmas“, and all through the house”… and don’t know as much about what Yahweh’s word says… (Roman 10:8 says that we get stuff down into our hearts first by using our voice, and that’s how we got “Poor Rudolph” down in our hearts, by having it sung out loud to us by the lips of others).

Then after it’s in our hearts, it works in reverse, and what’s in our hearts then comes out of our mouths, (see Matthew 12:34-35; Mark 11:23; Romans 10:9-10; Deuteronomy 30:9-19).  So, maybe we should sing scripture, especially in the areas that we are struggling with and need to renew our minds in.  You might need to make up a new song.  Psalm were originally designed to be sung…

We are to use our voice! Can I back that up in the Word of Yahweh?  Most certainly, I can.  Yahoshua said five times in ten verses to “Take no thought, (Matthew 6:25-34), and right in the middle of these verses, Yahoshua further explained that we take thoughts by saying, by talking out loud, (Matthew 6:25-31), where he said, “Take no thought, saying.  If you say out loud that which the enemy planted into your mind, then you have taken a thought, but not captive.
 
 
 
When the enemy comes in, like a flood of Yahweh’s Word flowing out of you, you stop and say what the Voice of Yahweh has said, (either written or spoken).  Your mind has to stop and listen to your voice.  It has to! You have stopped or arrested that thought.  Remember interrupting “Poor Rudolph”, and saying “Yes, Lord, and don’t be poor no more.

So, the next time you hear Yahweh say, “Go down this lane” when looking for a parking space at Wal-Mart, stop and reply out loud back saying, “I will go down this lane”.  This will prevent your mind from receiving a thought, and then having a forward mouth saying, something like, “Aw, but there are no parking places in this lane”.

Learn to revere Yahweh’s spoken word, as well as Yahweh’s written word.  By saying things out loud, you will quench the thoughts, and take them captive unto the knowledge of Yahweh.  You will begin to have a Fear of Yahweh, and you will have good success, with victory meeting you at every step, (Isaiah 41:2; Amplified Bible).  (Bonus ~ Read Isaiah 46:9-11)

 
 
 
I went by a Nursing home awhile back.  What I saw was an old lady, gasping with her mouth trying to breath normally.  She looked healthy in every way, except she was old and wrinkled up, and she was having a hard time with her body.  I wondered to myself had she fed herself well, and neglected the part that she needed the most to endure life?

Had she had much life left in her?  She looked like she was going to die any second.  I wondered if this was because in her diet, she had not included Yahweh’s word.  Did she neglect to spend time in Yahweh’s word?  Man SHALL NOT LIVE by bread alone, but by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of Yahweh.  I left not knowing.

I found that everyday, if someone asks me how’s work going, and if I reply something to the effect that I am covered up in work…  then I come back to my office to find that I am.  If I answer hectic or frustrated then I come back to find frustrations await me on my hectic ride.

Well, that’s the way it is.  It is a hectic, frustrating day.  What would you have me do?  Lie?  I ran across Yahweh’s word one day as I pondered Yahweh’s law into my heart.  I read in Proverbs 30:8-9 “Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full, and deny [thee], and say, Who [is] Yahweh?  or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God [in vain].”
 
 
 
I am reminded of the story of Goldie Locks and the Three Bears.  There was always one chair, or one soup or one bed that was JUST RIGHT.  Not too much, and not too little.

So, after reading Proverbs 30:8-9, when folks would ask me how’s my day going.  I don’t spout off, “Well, I’m as busier than a hound dog with 60 rabbits”, nor do I say, “Things are so dry that I could dehydrate”.

I said what I saw in Proverbs 30:8-9.  THINGS ARE JUST RIGHT~!  Not so bothersome that I am annoyed, and not so dull that I bored, but just right, and you know what?   Things began to be just the way that I was saying, “Just Right”.  Things started being Steady and Constant, and Consistent.  And I am a Diligent man, not overdoing it all in one day, or watching the world go by, but constant, and doing the work that is set before me as I go about my way.

Whatever you believe in your heart and say with your mouth causes it to happen just that way.

  • Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it [spring] the issues of life, (Proverbs 4:23).

And whatever is in your heart will come out your mouth~!  Luke 6:45 ~ “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil.  For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.”

Mark 11:23 ~For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.”

 
 
 
MAN SHALL NOT LIVE by bread alone, BUT by “EVERY WORD OF Yahweh.

So get your heart right by giving attention to Yahweh’s words.  Inclining your ear and your heart to what Yahweh says, no questions asked.  Place them before you.  Sing them aloud.  Chat them, Pray them, but say Yahweh’s word aloud.  Let your own self hear you saying Yahweh’s word.
Proverbs 4:20-23 (NKJ)
  • 20 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings.
  • 21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart;
  • 22 For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.
  • 23 Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.

Verse 21 could be translated, stick them on the bathroom mirror, on the refrigerator, have them in the car on index cards, put them in your closets so that you can see them as you dress.  Put them on the television screen… why not cover up the television.

Well, this is the long version, but I do think it is very important to know Yahweh’s word.

 
 
 
  • 20 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart;
  • 21 For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.

Proverbs 27:19 ~ As in water face [reflects] face, So a man’s heart [reveals] the man.  (Amplified Bible)

Proverbs 12:23 ~ A prudent man conceals knowledge, But the heart of fools proclaims foolishness.  (NKJ)

Have you ever heard someone say, I did something so dumb.  You wouldn’t believe what I did, and then go on to tell you their folly.  A prudent man, a wise man, one who knows how to spot danger and take cover, conceals even what he knows.  You don’t hear this man proclaiming what Yahweh has told him, unless Yahweh tells him to do so.  But, a fool proclaims his follies…

How are you doing at work?

You find Proverbs 30:8-9 and you decide, (make a solid decision), to trust that it’s so…

Does your Faith save you?  No~ !  It’s the Grace and Power of that verse that saves you.  But, it is your Faith that Trusts that what Yahweh says He is Faithful to Perform it, (Jeremiah 1:12).

 
 
 
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; [it is] the gift of Yahweh, (Amplified Bible)

We are saved by Grace.  It did not say that we are saved by Christ.  See what I’m getting at, (Click Here to see Ephesians 2:8 in Multiple Translations).

I think that it was because of Christ that we have Grace to save us, {John 1:16-17 ~ And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace.  For the law was given through Moses, [but] grace and truth came through Yahoshua, (the Messiah).  (Amplified Bible)}.

It occurred to me while reading Proverbs 10:4He who has a slack hand becomes poor, But the hand of the diligent makes rich”.  (NKJ), (also Proverbs 12:24; Proverbs 13:4).  I had been in commission sales.

…that I was being diligent, and therefore I would see money come in abundantly.  After that point, my finances in sales soared.

It came from my heart

My heart changed because of what I read in the word, and I know that I will be successful, so I have relaxed in attitude and that relaxation has helped me get more sales.  I sold for one week, half of my sales quota for the entire month.  I have people calling and I answer the phone and it is a major ticket item.  I find favor.  I am reaped where I did not sow.  And I am reaped where I did sow.  I have so many stories to tell that you won’t believe even one, let alone everyday.

 
 
 
I was saying that I am selling like HotCakes, but that got hard to keep up with, being that I have what I say coming from my heart.  So, now I say everything is so normal.  Not too slow, and not too much.  Slow and steady, steady, steady…

Synonymous with Constant.

I felt like the Solutions for Success came hot off the press from Yahweh.  I could hardly type fast enough as I felt the Holy Spirit talking.  I made an extra effort not to put additives to what Yahweh was telling me, and to make it only Yahweh.  For I had read in Proverbs 30:6 “Do not add to His words, Lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar.” (NKJ).

In the past I have been know to quote Yahweh and then add my interpretation or my mini-years of insight…  like the stuff I know about light and then adding what I think Yahweh really meant.  Of course, what I add always turns out wrong, and then nobody wants to buy the whole song and dance anymore.  They think I did not hear from Yahweh, when I did, but I just added what I thought was going to happen…  Well, I repent from discrediting Yahweh, and I am even not putting some stuff down on paper, unless I hear Yahweh say it’s ok, when I feel the urge to write down everything.  A wise man holds his tongue.  I’m trying to be wise.

Proverbs 5:2 ~ that you may maintain discretion and your lips may preserve knowledge.  (NIV)

Proverbs 12:23 ~ A prudent man keeps his knowledge to himself, but the heart of fools blurts out folly.  (NIV)

 
 
 
Look at what Mark 4:19 says.

Then the cares and anxieties of the world, and distractions of the age, and the pleasure and delight and false glamour and deceitfulness of riches, and the craving and passionate desire for other things creep in and choke and suffocate the Word, and it becomes fruitless.

And this happen for me.  What is Yahweh saying in Mark 4:23-25.  Here’s an example to show you more of what Yahweh is saying.  One time, a little girl about 4 years old came over with her folks, and we eat pizza out on the concrete patio.  I put my glass of red cool-aid in between my legs on the floor.  It was safe, because I knew it was there.

Without warning this young girl came running over to me to jump in my lap.  I said, “Wait, wait, wait”.  But, it was of no use.  She kicked my glass over and broke the glass and spilled red cool-aid on my patio concrete.  Then she looked up at me as if to say, “Oh, that’s what you were trying to warn me about”.

 
 
 
If anyone has ears to hear, let him be listening, and let him perceive and comprehend.  If you want to locate the knock in a car engine, then you must listen to isolate the sound, and find the problem.  One week later, it doesn’t profit me to come to Yahweh, and say, okay, I’m ready now to listen.

In verse 24, Yahweh goes on to say in essence is that what you hear now, will propel you on to where you got to go, but if you do not stop and hear this, then you want have the necessary plans to keep what you got, and even what you have will be stolen from you.

As long as you are still on the planet, then it’s not too late.  It’s only too late once you die.  I’m sure the people in hell, can now see their error in not trusting Yahweh, and they would like to repent also.  However, they no longer have that option.

Even if you have missed Yahweh all the way, or missed Yahweh’s best, or missed Yahweh part of the time, as long as you are still on the earth you can repent, (which means to “Change Your Mind” to Yahweh’s way of doing and being right).  I choose this day to repent.

For Yahweh is at work within you, helping you want to obey him, and then helping you do what He wants.  (Not in your own strength), for it is Yahweh Who is all the while effectually at work in you—energizing and creating in you the power and desire—both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and desire.  (Philippians 2:13 ~ Amplified Bible).

 
 
 
Yahweh will Strengthen you, (if we have the Testimony of Two or Three Witnesses, then that word is valid.  So take a look at how many times Yahweh said in Yahweh’s Word that he will strengthen us ~ by Clicking Here on these verses ~ Philippians 4:13; 1 Peter 5:10; Isaiah 40:30-31 ~ 30; 2 Corinthians 12:9-10; 2 Corinthians 13:9; Ephesians 6:10; 2 Timothy 2:1; Ephesians 6:10; Joel 3:10).

Philippians 4:13 ~ I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.

1 Peter 5:10 ~ And may the God of all grace who called you to his eternal glory in Christ Jesus (after suffering a little while) himself thoroughly prepare you. He will establish, strengthen, and provide a foundation.

Isaiah 40:30-31 ~ 30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: 31 But they that wait upon Yahweh shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

2 Corinthians 12:9 ~ 9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.  10  Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

2 Corinthians 13:9 ~ For we are glad, when we are weak, and you are strong: and this also we wish, even your perfection.

Ephesians 6:10 ~ Finally, my brethren, be strong in Yahweh and in the power of his might.

2 Timothy 2:1 ~ Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.

Joel 3:10 ~ Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong.

I see the Fear of Yahweh as this.  If an adult advises a minor not to eat something that this adults knows will cause stomach cramps, such as sour ham, or something so simple as orange juice and then go brush your teeth with toothpaste.  Or overeating, or eating salad and vinegar and then drinking milk.  Or eating dill pickles with chocolate, or turning up the bag of corn chips and eating the last bit where all the salt resides, and then wondering why you’re having stomach problems.

Say that the child is left unattended, without adult supervision, left only with admonishment of the parent.  The child has the option to trust that the parent is telling the truth, and refrain from consuming that product, even though he may reason that he has eaten this product before without consequences, (not realizing that this time he has already consumed something else that will not mix well with this).

Or the child can rely on his own understanding and consume the substance.  If the child does not heed the warning, then the upset stomach will happen, and this may even cause a ripple effect, (delay in going to school, causing parent to be late, or other obstructions that the child could not foreseen…).

 
 
 

Or maybe, it’s telling a 9 year child not to eat the snacks now, that they need to leave room for the real food, and they say, “I can eat both”, and you have to throw away what they said that they could eat.

We’re just more experienced, from having done this ourselves ~ at this cause and effect routine, going to bed real late and then trying to arise early and stay awake all day.  A child doesn’t know or believe that the cause will effect them, and that they’ll be able to “Will Power it away.  Similarly, we are a child in the way that the Kingdom of Yahweh operates.  There’s a lot of stuff we don’t know, and have to trust Yahweh for.

So, to me a Fear of Yahweh, is not an outright fright of Yahweh, but rather a respect and an honor to Yahweh’s word.  It’s saying, Yahweh in my own understanding, I don’t see where this is wrong to do such and such, or that it will hurt me or anyone else, or I don’t see where this will profit me to do what you’re saying.

But, because I trust that you know more than I can comprehend, and that you can see the far-reaching results of this action, I will trust you, and because of the respect that I have for your authority, and that you are superior to me, I am going to follow your course of action, (and this includes the following the written word of Yahweh such as in Proverbs and other places in the Bible).  More simply put, trust the unknown with what Yahweh says do.  It’s like, it would take more time to explain it than we have available, so just trust me.

 
 
 

Here is something that I heard someone say, and I think this puts the Fear of Yahweh into terms that we can understand.

“Now, when I talk about ‘the Fear of Yahweh,’ please understand, I’m not saying you should be afraid of Yahweh.  He’s your Father!  You should be as secure and unafraid when you come before Him as a child who knows he is dearly loved.  But you must also have so much respect for Him that whenever He reveals something you need to do, you do it immediately—even if it goes against your natural desires.  That’s walking in the Fear of Yahweh.”

The Fear of Yahweh is not being afraid of Yahweh but rather respecting what he says and following that course of action, especially when that choice goes against our own rational thinking.

1 Timothy 5:24, Colossians 3:6
