Judging others 

JudgementToday I could be caught out for not giving people the benefit of the doubt. 

We can all look for a bad or good motive behind other people’s behaviour. We have the choice. 

Yeshua is the only judge. Not even His Father judges. 

John 5:22-23

For not even the Father judges anyone, but He has given all judgment to the Son, so that all will honor the Son even as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him
So we are warned by Him of the measure in which we judge and give thoughts and opinions will be the measure by which He judges us. 

It is so important to react in a way that assumes positively not negatively about the reasons for someone’s action. 

Cognitive negative thoughts breed negativity distrust and fear. 
You see someone walking towards you on a bright day. 

They don’t appear to notice you and despite your wave they pass by. 

Now was it because they didn’t want to talk to you or because the sun was in their eyes? Assume the latter and you won’t feel offended. 

Luke 6:37-38
“Do not judge, and you will not be judged; and do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; pardon, and you will be pardoned. Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”

If we feel compelled to judge someone or people, let’s judge them with the scales weighted in their favour. 

Give them the benefit of the doubt. 
Booming positive assumptions 

One thing is needed. Righteousness peace and joy. 

Positivity and happiness and joy. 
The only single constant in my life is the goodness of God. It is this predictability that permits me to be positive about the future. I know that His plans for me and the world are better than anyone’s. 
Jeremiah 29:11

I know that my heart can be deceived and forever needs His nurturing heart to keep me on His path.
Jeremiah 17:9-10

“The heart is deceitful above all things,

And desperately wicked;

Who can know it?

I, the Lord, search the heart,

I test the mind,

Even to give every man according to his ways,

According to the fruit of his doings.
‘If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you.

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you yet make allowance for their doubting too’ 

 The opening stanzas from ‘IF’ by Rudyard Kipling 
I am not alone, I am sure, wondering what is going on in the world at present, concerned and sad about the continued massive divide between rich and poor and the violence and hatred. 
We watched a beautiful film the other night called the Eagle Hunters about Kazakh tribes in the steppes and their lifestyle. The true story centres round a young girl who learns a man’s sport and pursuit of hunting with eagles. The simplicity of their life whilst adapting to hardship and maintaining the sunniest of dispositions is a marked contrast to the West. Their faith in their god is uppermost in all they do. In the nearest ‘town’ the tribal children weekly board and return home to their families on the weekend to help farm, hunt and cook. 

 
We appear to have so much available here in the West, as Warren Buffett states in his news letter to the shareholders of Berkshire Hathaway. 

Our countries especially the USA have advanced so far in such a short time. Paraphrased ‘From a standing start 240 years ago America’s economic dynamism is nothing short of a miracle.’ 

75 million owner-occupied homes, 260 million vehicles, top medical centres, talent-filled universities, hyper-productive factories, an amassed wealth of $90 trillion. Heavy debt to finance the assets but even in default the asset passes hands. ‘ Money is always there but the pockets change.’ Gertrude Stein.

Four million US babies born every year entitled to a public education cost mostly at local level $150000 per baby which converts into $600 billion per year, about 3.5% of GDP. Extraordinary. 

Yet;

Matthew 16:26-27

For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.

But how positive is everyone? How happy are they? 
Without knowing Jesus no one will be truly happy. 
Papa said to us today. 
‘My extending my hand of friendship through My Son, Jesus Christ to humankind should be an indicator of just how valuable and loved they are to me. Man without Me is nothing. But Man with Me has the potential to become everything. 

What is this potential to have everything? 

Problem:-

We cannot take any of these above assets with us after death. 

Clearly these assets we acquire and focus on have little value to Him. They are temporary, fleeting pleasures and accoutrements.  
The hill tribes live simply without electricity often. Their outer clothing is made from furs. Their tribal and family units are strong and tradition is one of the most important features in their life. The Jewish faith embodies this with their feast and worship days remembering their history and God’s goodness to them. 
My life is dedicated to two areas:-
1. My pursuit of knowing and loving Yeshua and having Him flow through me 

Into Loving my family first and ‘extended family’ 

 2. Doing His will. 

I will be judged by what works I have done for Him in my life not by my status or wealth. 

I am a seeker of souls to redeem , ensuring everyone hears the ‘knock on the door and letting Him in.’

By His grace and love He redeemed me and my sole purpose is to witness that change and be one with God. 

Being one with Him brings His fullness authority and power, not mine. 

This task makes me joyful and positive. 
John 15:5
“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.”
Booming Oneness 

A spiritual and physical health warning

Spiritual and physical health warning
If you don’t believe in Heaven or God now, you will certainly be forced to believe in Him later and confronted with the Truth when you find yourself on the highway to Hell at the end of time. 

Act Now! 

You will not have peace in your life until you find Him. He is the Prince of Peace. 
We are around to show you the way to Him. 
It’s not about three our Fathers and two Hail Mary or sitting in church. 

It’s about accepting Jesus of Nazareth God made man as the Way the Truth and the Life into your heart totally and experientially. He is the only way to Heaven and the Father. 

John 14:6

Jesus said to him, I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except by (through) Me.
By the way the King of Kings is a Jew and sits high as Lord above everything the Heavens and the Universe so anti Semitic thoughts and behaviours are not advised! 
Jesus didn’t have the New Testament to talk from. He is the New Testament a manifestation and sequel to the Old Testament. 
However when He talked to the two after His resurrection on the road to Enmmaeus, He spoke from His ‘Bible’ the Hebrew Scriptures which are His history. They were trying through shock and sadness to piece together what had happened to Yeshua. How had the Messiah died? Why?  
What is dumbfounding is that there are so many mentions of Yeshua and what would happen to Him in these books psalms and prophesies going back easily a thousand years before He was born, how is it that the chosen race and tribe into which He was born still do not recognise Him today let alone then? 

How is it that with the benefit of the New Testament and His life on earth people today despite all the historical proof do not accept Him now? 

He has been around since before the beginning of time. 

In the beginning was the word. 

In the beginning God created the Heavens and the cosmos. 

‘I am the beginning and the end, the alpha and the omega’

He says in the New Testament. 
The West has such a lack of spiritual depth compared to Africa and the East. They are prideful and arrogant and sinning. That is why today so many millions convert daily in Pakistan and India and China. More humility ingrained and search for a spiritual meaning to life. 

Our Lord Jesus, the visible image of the invisible God His Father is not a white Anglo Saxon Protestant. He is a North African Jew from a town with a very bad reputation and He is dark in complexion. Get used to it. We have seen Him. 
The Lord just told us 

‘You cannot embrace Christianity if you don’t embrace the Jews’
Without the Jews there would be no Messiah. 

Where would Christianity be? 

They may not have recognised Yeshua when He arrived but they do believe in the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob. Jesus is the seed of Abraham. 
Get a Handle on it as Handel did ! 
Booming Truth. 

Supernatural foot bath 

Foot bath servant and master style. 
While praying this morning on the sofa my beloved wife appeared in front of me saying she had to do something. 

She went into the spirit and I watched what was going on. 

She / Yeshua appeared to be at my feet bathing them. The heat was intense and tears poured down my cheeks. 
As she came out and I told her what I saw, she affirmed it was the Lord washing me. 
She then proceeded to bring Heaven to Earth by bringing a bowl of warm water and anointing oil to massage my feet. 
As she toiled she said she saw my feet turn into lion’s paws. Wow. 
In the verse below His message is clear. 

We are servants as He was to us and if we do not accept His ministrations He will have no part of us or us of Him. We must be doing the same.
John 13:5-8

After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.

He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?”

Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”

“No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.”

Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.”

Who is True North? 

Our path is True North, His Path. 

Yeshua

He is the Way. All of our purpose in everything we do is to calibrate ourselves to Heaven’s plans and direction. 

In navigation the compass is calibrated to take account of magnetic north. The enemy is magnetic north three degrees off. Yeshua is True North as He said to me a few years back. 
Psalm 48 verse 2. 

Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth,

Is Mount Zion in the far north,

The city of the great King.

Set your compass carefully.
