Love is Patient

One of the spiritual goals of Believers in Yahushua Messiah [Jesus Christ] is to show Biblical love to others.

But showing love to others can be difficult at times.

So let’s look at Biblical love, which is like a precious jewel — because love many facets. And one of these facets is patience.

In 1Corithians 13 [The “Love Chapter” of the Bible] we are told:

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; love is not arrogant” (1Corithians 13:4).

To love someone is to behave with patience. This is one way we show Biblical love to others.

Patience is waiting – waiting with an expectation in our heart for God’s goodness.

Patience is a vision for waiting to the end.

Patience waits.

Patience waits by continuing to plant another seed each new day.

Just as a farmer must wait as the precious seeds lie buried in the soil, unseen and appearing as though dead, so also LOVE patiently waits.

Behold, the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient over it, until it receives the early and late rain. (James 5:7b)

The farmer waits silently for the precious fruit of the earth. Every seed he plants is hidden and buried. But the farmer’s eyes are focused on the unseen realm. He looks not at the bare soil where the seed was just planted, but he looks toward the harvest.

So it is with you and me.

Every day, we plant a seed of God’s Word, trusting it will take root and prosper (Isaiah 55:11).

Every day, we plant a patient, hidden prayer, perhaps a prayer for more understanding, a prayer for healing, prayer for the return of a wayward child, prayer for a change of the heart — a change in others, or a change in ourselves.

Oh how often we all need of this loving, hidden, and often silent, patience: “For God alone my soul waits in silence; from Him comes my salvation!” (Psalms 62:1)

It takes hidden patience to remember that God’s timing is not our timing (Isaiah 55:8-9).

It takes hidden patience to remember that Yahuwah Elohim [the LORD God] wants us to focus on the unseen, eternal realm (2Corinthians 4:17-18).

It takes hidden patience to remember that our heavenly Father will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him, those who look to Him and hope in His mercy (Psalms 145:19 and 147:11).

It takes hidden patience to remember to BE patient:

Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience . . . (Hebrews 10:35).

The Holy Spirit often reminds me that I have need of patience!

The Scriptures reveal how important this “Fruit of the Spirit” — patience — truly is!

•  It is through patience that we bring forth good fruit (Luke 8:15).

•  It is through faith and patience that we inherit the promises of God. (Hebrews 6:12)

•  It is through patience that we can run the course that Father sets before us. (Hebrews 12:1)

•  It is through the comfort of the Scriptures and patience that we obtain hope. (Romans 15:4)

•  It is through patience that we can become mature and complete, lacking nothing. (James 1:4)

•  It is through patience that we learn to keep Yahuwah’s commandments and the faith of Yahushua Messiah [Jesus Christ]. (Revelation 14:12)

•  It is through patience that we learn to possess our souls. That is, we patiently learn to keep ourselves disciplined, sober-minded, and responsible, maintaining our fear of God with vigilance. (Luke 21:19)

Spiritually Handicapped

Have we yet realized the importance of having patience?

Without patience, we would be spiritually handicapped!

Without patience, the promises and rewards that Father has for His children would not be obtained!

We need great patience to diligently seek Father, so that He CAN reward us!

We need great patience to read and study the Scriptures, so that we can grasp the hope of eternal life.

We need great patience to wait on Father’s timing for His answers.

Consider this: it takes great patience for a mother to wait for, and endure, the birth of her baby.

So it is with our prayers!

We need great patience to pray daily, regularly, crying out day and night unto Yahuwah, so that we can eventually receive ‘the baby’ — that is, receive the answer to our pleas (See: Luke 18:1-8 and Matthew 7:7-11).

Our crying out for answers waters our heart with more patience. We cry and groan with sounds unclear and mysterious.

Our tearful anguish works patience in us out of necessity.

With only our own strength, we cannot succeed! We need Father to hold us tightly, to keep us near Him, reminding us of His loving care, and encourage us with His Word (See Psalms 139)!

Another day brings us once again to the patience of waiting.

But Father’s mercies are renewed every morning! Father’s hope and joy is restored every morning! (Lamentations 3:22-23; Psalms 30:5; Psalms 143:8).

And so, we wait because we love!

Love can wait, wait a long time, wait until the end. It never becomes impatient; it never wants to hurry things up and force them. It deals with long periods of time. Waiting, having patience, continuing to love and be kind, even where it seems entirely to miss the mark — this alone wins people over; this alone breaks the bonds that chain every person…. Kindness often seems so completely inappropriate, but love is patient and kind. It waits….” — Dietrich Bonhoeffer

We wait with patience and endurance because this is how we show Biblical love. We continue to look to Yah, every day, waiting and trusting Him for answers (Micah 7:7).

Love endures, love hopes, love perseveres and persists and waits — to the end, to the promised harvest (1Corinthians 13:4-8).

We continue to plant our prayer seeds – seeds, though hidden and often tearful, yet precious in Father’s sight:

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him! (Psalms 126:5-6)

And because God is love, our enduring, persistent patience is the expression of HIS love . . . because love is patient!

Thank you Father, for the strength of Your love to hold me close to You. Help me to endure patiently, to wait with expectation for Your goodness, and to not give up my prayers nor my commitment to honour You in all I do. In Yahushua Messiah’s name I pray. Amen.

The Baby in Your Womb: Give Birth to God’s Plans

Giving birth to a baby is an awesome experience. Whenever it happens, the event is surrounded with immense joy! The joy is anticipated for nine months, beginning at the time the baby’s life begins — the moment of conception.

The moment of the conception of a baby is an amazing, mysterious event. It is at that very moment that a ‘spark of life’ occurs, and the life of another person begins, within the secret depths of a woman’s womb.

But how could it happen. . . that an innocent baby in a woman’s womb is considered, by some, as something to discard, as if the pregnancy is a burdensome inconvenience?

Of course, some babies are conceived as a result of a mutual love between a husband and wife, and therefore the anticipated birth of their baby is a joyful and most desirable event.

Yet the circumstances surrounding the conception of some babies greatly hinders the joy of their anticipated birth.

As we all know, when some babies are conceived, no one involved wants the baby!

If you are someone dealing with the ‘problem’ of an unwanted pregnancy, then stay with me and allow me to reveal a perspective that will give you hope.

Does God Make Mistakes?

It is unfortunate but true, that some babies are conceived in the midst of the trauma of rape.

Also, some babies are conceived as the result of a momentary, forbidden pleasure between a man and woman — by those not married (fornication), or between those married to someone else (adultery). When this happens, the majority of the time, both the man and the woman have no intention of taking any responsibility for the baby.

These kind of circumstances make the birth of a baby very undesirable to both the man and the woman. And this is what I want to address.

In the case of these so-called ‘undesirable’ births, we must ask ourselves an important question.

Did God make a mistake?!?

Did God, who is the Author of Life (Acts 3:15; John 1:4; 5:26), make a mistake in allowing the ‘spark of life’ — the conception of a baby — to happen in the unfortunate circumstances described above?

I am confident that God does NOT make mistakes!!

Even in the cases of rape, incest, fornication, or adultery, if a baby is conceived, there is a very definite FACT regarding that innocent baby:

  • God, most definitely, has a plan for THAT baby! God has a specific and definite plan for each and every baby that is conceived!

No matter the circumstances surrounding the conception of a baby, the fact that conception actually occurred means that God has taken a situation that may appear dreadful, or even evil, and He has turned it into a divine plan — a specific plan — for THAT specific baby!

How can we know this?

Let me explain . . .

His Over-Riding Goodness

Of course, it is true that God does NOT desire for anyone to experience rape or incest or fornication or adultery! The heavenly Father is good! He is loving and He desires for each one of us to BE good and kind and righteous in all we do.

However, our Creator, Yahuwah Elohim [the Hebrew name for the LORD God], has given us the ability to choose what we do.

Sadly, many choose to do things that are evil, things that are wicked, and things that, perhaps unknown at the time, are offensive and grievous. Though God has revealed His ways and instructions in the Bible, unfortunately many choose to defy and ignore His instructions.

But Yahuwah is The Living God, Creator of all things, and His goodness will ultimately over-ride the wickedness in this world. He is good to all, even though we may not have the spiritual eyes to see it. Our heavenly Father’s goodness is far-reaching, and is stronger than all!

God reveals His over-riding goodness in several instances in the Bible, where He takes a situation that is evil, and He turns it into a blessing.

One Biblical example where we see this demonstrated is the account of the hatred of Joseph’s ten older brothers (Genesis 37:3-11). It was evil for Joseph’s brothers to hate him. And because of their hatred, they eventually sold Joseph to some travelling merchants, who took him to Egypt. Yet Yahuwah turned this evil circumstance into something that ultimately blessed multitudes! The day came when Joseph forgave his brothers, and he told them:

“You plotted evil against me, but God turned it into good, in order to preserve the lives of many people who are alive today, because of what happened” (Genesis 50:20).

What Joseph’s brothers did to him was certainly evil. But God turned their wicked plot around. God turned it into something good. And God does the same thing for us today.

Whenever a heartbreaking or unfortunate circumstance results in the conception of a baby, then God is able to turn it into something good, a blessing for many!

Regardless of some of the regrettable circumstances that surround the conception of some babies, the fact remains: when conception occurs, God has allowed the ‘spark of life’ to happen, and therefore, God has a specific plan for that specific baby.

The Facts of Life

We must realize that the conception of a baby is not an absolute, happen-every-time result of the sexual act! Conception is not an automatic consequence of every sexual act.

Yes, it is a fact of life that God, the Creator of all life, set in motion from the beginning of time, the whole process of how conception happens. Every one knows the ‘facts of life’ — the unchangeable law of sexual relations — that when a man and a woman come together sexually, then a baby is often the result! This fact of life is normal, natural, and necessary!

But notice that word ‘often‘. The sexual act between a man and a woman does NOT mean that a baby will always be conceived.

There are many factors necessary in order for conception to actually occur!

Certain, precise biological conditions have to be working at optimum levels for the ‘spark of life’ to occur, and for a baby to be conceived[1][2].

In this day and age of amazing technological and scientific discoveries, it is now possible to understand the intimate, complex, multi-step processes that are required for the conception of a baby to actually happen[3][4].

The whole process is so complex, so intricate, so complicated, that when conception does happen, and a baby is conceived in a woman’s womb, then it has to be because God alone has ordained it; He established and ruled it to be!

A Particular and Specific Time

Think of all the women in the Scriptures who sincerely wanted to conceive and become pregnant, yet were unable to conceive. However, it happened that these women finally did become pregnant! Why? Because at a particular and specific time, Yahuwah Elohim ordained conception to happen; He ruled it to be!

Examples such as Sarah, Abraham’s wife; Rebekah, Isaac’s wife; Rachel, Jacob’s wife; Hannah, Elkanah’s wife; Manoah’s wife (Samson’s mother); and Elizabeth, Zacharias’ wife — all these women conceived a child in their womb, ONLY at the precise time, when Yahuwah had determined it!

Only when the Living, Almighty God, Creator of the universe, determines that the specific, particular time for all the intimate, biologically complex, multi-step processes are to come together — exactly and perfectly — only then, does conception occur!

Conception is not a random thing! Conception is something ordained by the Creator of all things — Yahuwah Elohim.

It is true that many women conceive without difficulty, and that is the way Yahuwah has ordered it.

But the statistics prove that conception is not an automatic result of the sexual act. More than five million people of childbearing age in the United States — or one in every 10 couples — have problems with infertility[5].

These couples prove the fact that all the biological, complex, multi-step processes must be perfectly lined up in order for conception to happen! The only ONE who can order all these processes to be perfectly lined-up is the Creator of ALL life — the God of the Bible!

So Dear Reader, no matter how a conception occurs, a pregnancy is the start of a life that God intends to bring forth to completion, because GOD HAS A PLAN FOR THAT BABY!

Yahuwah Elohim is well able to turn what we might consider a terrible situation, into something good.

IF God allows the conception of a baby to happen, no matter what the circumstances, then we must believe God, and trust Him, that He has allowed a life to be created for a divine purpose, and according to His plan!

Minka Disbrow

Here is one modern-day example of a woman who conceived a baby as the result of a traumatic rape.

In 1928, 16-year-old Minka Disbrow was on a picnic in the woods when she was assaulted and raped, and she became pregnant. The baby was secretly born, and given up for adoption. But even before the baby was born, Minka began to love the baby growing in her womb. And though she gave the baby girl up for adoption, Minka continued to love the child, trying for decades to relocate the girl[6].

Minka finally did reconnect with her daughter, 77 years later. Minka learned that her daughter, Ruth, was blessed with six children of her own. One of her children was the NASA astronaut Mark Lee, and another son was a West Point grad, Army Lt. Col. Brian Lee[7].

We must consider the life of Minka’s daughter Ruth. She was a child conceived as a result of rape. She was adopted by a family, who loved her as their own. Ruth was a happy and grateful girl, and she eventually married, and lived a wonderful life. When we think about what happened to Ruth, we have to say, “YES, God had a plan for her life!”

As for Ruth’s six children, they would all say how immensely grateful they are that Minka did not abort her innocent child — a child that was conceived by rape.

The Plans I Have For You

We do not know the plans and purposes that Yahuwah has ordained for each and every person that is conceived. But it is absolutely true that each person that IS conceived is someone that the Creator of the universe loves, and has ordained to fulfill Yah’s plans!

Parents never know what plans their child will fulfill. But none of us should ever think that a baby in the womb has no purpose. Every baby in the womb is precious!

The womb is Yah’s secret and mysterious workshop, where He carefully and intricately, forms every ‘fearfully and wonderfully made’ person (Psalms 139). We should honour His awesome and excellent handiwork, and allow each baby to live, and fulfill the hopes and dreams that Yah places in their heart.

Yahuwah declares that He has plans for each one of us:

  • For I know the plans I have for you, declares Yahuwah [the LORD], plans of peace (well-being), and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11)
  • Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of Yahuwah [the LORD] that will stand (Proverbs 19:21)
  • But He [Yahuwah] is unchangeable, and who can turn Him back? What He desires, that He does! (Job 23:13)

These verses remind us that Yahuwah has plans for every person, plans of goodness and hope. Let us not rely on our own human understanding, but let us trust in the eternal WORD of God, who is watching us, loving us, and giving blessings and mercies to those who put their hope in Him! Let us come into harmony with HIS plans!

Conclusion

It is true that our Creator has given every single person the ability to make decisions. Each one of us can choose to do whatever we please. And sadly, it is a tragic fact that many people choose to do things that are wicked and unrighteous. However God is very aware of the wicked things that go on in this world.

  • Yahuwah [the LORD] looks down from heaven; He sees all the children of men. 14) From where He sits enthroned, He looks out on all the inhabitants of the earth. 15) He fashions the hearts of them all and observes all their deeds. (Psalms 33:13-15)
  • He who planted the ear, does He not hear? He who formed the eye, does He not see? … “Can a man hide himself in secret places so that I cannot see him? … Do I not fill heaven and earth?” declares Yahuwah [the LORD]. (Psalms 94:9; Jeremiah 23:24)

None of us can hide from Yahuwah. He sees all we do, and He weighs carefully the thoughts and motives of our heart. One Day, He will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, “for God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil” (Ecclesiastes 12:14; see also Isaiah 3:11).

“The things [of this world] are out of course; sin is rampant, saints are wronged, they are often defeated in a righteous cause, they can meet with no justice here, justice [here] is turned into wormwood. But there is a day coming, when God will set things right; He will do every man justice [including preborn children]; He will crown the righteous, and condemn the wicked.He has appointed a day in which He will judge the world.’ (Acts 17:31)” – Thomas Watson (emphasis mine)

The counsel and eternal plans of Yahuwah will stand firm, throughout all generations, regardless of anyone’s ignorance, disobedience, or sinfulness. He sees the wickedness more clearly than we do, and yet, He permits it. Why? Because He has given us the ability to choose what we do. But ultimately, in the perfect timing of the King of the universe, in the appointed Day, He will over-ride the wickedness of the human race, and everyone will see the divine justice of God.

All of Yah’s works are truthful, and His ways are right. And those who walk in pride, He is able to humble. The sovereign purposes of Yahuwah Elohim will prevail! (See Daniel 4:37; Psalms 33:11; Isaiah 46:8-10; Proverbs 19:21).

Yahuwah tells us: “As I have planned, so shall it be, and as I have purposed, so shall it stand (Isaiah 14:24)!

Let us be firm and settled in our conclusion . . . that whenever the conception of a baby happens, it is the start of a new life, and God has a purpose for that life! Let no one kill that life! That life, that baby, is someone whom God loves and has been ordained to be! God has plans for that baby!

Therefore, may it be that each woman who carries a baby in her womb, accept the new life that God has given, and then . . . give birth to God’s plans!

Dear Father in heaven, I thank You for the precious gift of life! Help me Father, to value and choose life for my baby. Help me to seek Your guidance, strength, mercy, and repentance. I ask for Your grace to help me serve You, by choosing life for my baby, and by honouring Your plans for my baby. I ask this in the name of Your Son, Yahushua Messiah [Jesus Christ], my Saviour.

For those who have had an abortion, or for anyone considering an abortion, we must remember that abortion is taking the life of another person — it is murder — it is a sin against God Himself.

However, we can ask for, and receive, God’s forgiveness for our sins, including abortion, if we sincerely repent. No matter how bad, no matter how numerous, God’s forgiveness is available for repentant sinners. See Help After Abortion.

He Is Coming With the Clouds

Everyone knows the beauty and ever-changing nature of clouds. These multi-coloured masses in the sky often demand our observation and attention.

Clouds are mysterious formations that constantly challenge our understanding. They force us to admit the wonder of God’s creation.

The never-ending mystery of clouds is probably why the second appearing of our Saviour, Yahushua Messiah [Jesus Christ], will be accompanied with clouds:

“Behold, He cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen” (Revelation 1:7).

“… And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory” (Mark 13:26).

The above verses are among several verses which declare that the return of Yahushua will be an event accompanied with a multitude of clouds (Daniel 7:13; Matthew 24:30; 14:62; Luke 21:27; Acts 1:9-11; 1Thessalonians 4:17).

The clouds that will appear with our Saviour’s return, could be dark, thundering, stormy clouds, with rushing winds and lightening flashes. Or they could be clouds, brilliant white, billowing, full and serene.

Perhaps such clouds may represent the accompaniment of multitudes of saints and/or angels at Messiah’s return.

When Yahuwah Elohim [the LORD God] appeared on Mt. Sinai, to deliver the Ten Commandments to the children of Israel, His appearing was also accompanied with clouds — dark, thundering clouds:

And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled…. And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because Yahuwah [the LORD] descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly. (Exodus 19:16-18)

As this passage reveals, the people trembled and the whole mountain quaked greatly, when Yahuwah descended with a thick cloud and fire!

Notice that when Yahuwah came down, there was ‘the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud.’

The voice of a trumpet will also be sounded at the moment of Yahushua’s second coming:

“…and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other” Matthew 24:30-31).

The sound of a trumpet will accompany Messiah’s appearing, along with the clouds — either white, billowing clouds, being full of angels and saints, or dark, thundering clouds, perhaps also being full of angels and saints.

Whatever the case, Messiah’s appearing will indeed be a shocking and powerful event that will cause some men’s hearts to rejoice with trembling, and others to tremble with fear!

The Great Cloud

I like to think that the clouds accompanying Yahushua’s return will include the great cloud of witnesses’ — the cloud that surrounds the saints while living here on the earth (Hebrews 12:1).

This ‘great cloud’, I speculate, has two secret qualities.

First, it has an inspiring quality about it, due to the many godly witnesses within it (possibly, this is why in the natural realm, some clouds appear as multitudes of faces looking down upon us).

Second, this ‘great cloud’ also has the provision of covering and hidenness within it. That is, it is a cloud that is able to keep someone out of sight, covered as for protection and safety (perhaps, this is why in the natural realm, clouds can block the sunshine at times – Your life is hidden with Messiah in Yahuwah.” (Colossians 3:3)).

Do You Know How The Clouds Float?

The study of the physical processes that lead to cloud formation is a very complex study known as ‘cloud physics’. However, “The precise mechanics of how a cloud forms and grows is not completely understood, but scientists have developed theories explaining the structure of clouds by studying the microphysics of individual droplets. (Wikipedia: Cloud Physics)”

With all our technological advances, scientists still ponder the same questions found in the book of Job, a book considered to be one of the most ancient books in existence:

Do you know how God gives the command and makes lightning flash from the clouds? Do you know how clouds balance, or float, in the sky, the work of God’s amazing skill? (Job 37:15-16)

Clouds are indeed mysterious things! Who has not stared in amazement at their wondrous beauty and ever-changing nature?

Clouds can cause us to look up with admiration and awe at some of their dramatic formations and colors. This mysterious nature of clouds could be the reason why a very special cloud accompanied the visible manifestation of the Presence of Yahuwah — the Shekinah Glory Cloud — when the children of Israel were in the wilderness:

And Moses said unto Yahuwah [the LORD],… “they have heard that You Yahuwah [LORD] are among this people, that You Yahuwah are seen face to face, and that Your cloud stands over them, and that You go before them, by day time in a pillar of a cloud, and in a pillar of fire by night.”  (Numbers 14:13-14; see also Numbers 9:15-16; Exodus 40:38)

Yahuwah’s presence in our midst always seems to be accompanied with a cloud. His cloud has a covering quality to it, most likely to hide the overwhelming intensity of His glory. Without the cloud to cover Him, we could not endure His presence!

Clouds have a definite purpose in Yah’s scheme of things. Clouds never cease to fascinate and confound us, which is part of their purpose.

Therefore, we should never forget that clouds will accompany our Saviour’s return. Every time we behold the clouds, they serve as a reminder of the great mystery and importance of Messiah’s return, as well as His vast power and glory — He, who is able to ride upon the wings of the wind, the clouds being as dust to His feet (Psalms 18:5; Nahum 1:3).

The return of Yahushua Messiah will be a moment of far-reaching magnitude! Messiah will appear in great glory and majesty, and as the Scriptures declare: “every eye shall see Him!” With the arrival of modern technology, it will actually be possible for every eye to see the return of Messiah!

Lift Up Your Heads

Yahuwah Elohim, Creator of heaven and earth, is intensely interested in His children, who are found on this little speck of earth, within the Milky Way galaxy. His supreme plan is to send His beloved Son to this earth once again, to gather His elect unto Himself! This thought is beyond amazing!

And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. (Luke 21:25-28)

As this passage tells us, there will be definite signs to be aware of just prior to Messiah’s return.

Have you noticed the signs?

Surely these are days of distresses and perplexities among the nations! Surely there are many signs in the sun and the moon and the stars!

Messiah, ‘who was, and who is, and who is to come’ (Revelation 1:8), is returning soon — coming with the clouds, and with power and great glory — coming to gather His precious elect — His Bride!

Let us look up to the sky, and notice the clouds with much more attention, and with much more expectation!

For He is coming with the clouds!

Boundaries are like the lines running down the middle of the highway. Staying on our side of the boundary line keeps us safe, and keeps us alive. Wandering across the boundary line can lead to collision and destruction. God has given His Word [the Bible], which clearly outlines His boundaries, given to us for our benefit! Let us be thankful for the restraint and the protection of God’s boundaries. They may well be the one thing that protects us from destruction!
