What is the Feast of Sukkot?


Do you want to know more about the blood moons or His Feast Days? Did you know we are to keep these Feast forever? Paul kept them and taught them to the Gentile churches. Let’s look at a couple verses to insure you that this is true. “Paul had decided to sail past Ephesus to avoid spending time in the province of Asia, for HE WAS IN A HURRY to reach Jerusalem, if possible, by the day of Pentecost”(Feast of Shavuot) Acts 20:16. Paul tells the Corinthians this, “… Therefore let us celebrate the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.” 1 Cor. 5:8. He is talking about the Feast of Unleavened Bread.
Today begins Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) but most the people are focused on the moon instead of this Feast that will be kept after Jesus returns. Yes, you heard right.

Many people quote Nehemiah 8:10, “The JOY of The Lord Adonai will be your STRENGTH” but they don’t understand where that scripture comes from or what it is talking about. Its talking about the Feast. Ezra is telling the people about JOY. These people, (Yahweh’s people) had been captive in Babylon for 70 years. Yes, 70 and WHY? For not keeping The Sabbath Holy. And now the people had just rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem and found the book of the Torah and it says in Nehemiah that Ezra the priest stood upon a PLATFORM above all the people and read from the Torah from early morning until afternoon and all the people began to weep and they bowed down and prostrated themselves. Why? When this is read it makes us aware of our sins and how we have fallen and what we need to do to live right. Did the priest that day have a job to come up with a catchy sermon or boast loudly or ask the people if they were preaching good or if they could get an amen? NO… Let’s look at verses 13-17…
“Then on the second day the heads of fathers’ households of all the people, the priests and the Levites were gathered to Ezra the scribe that THEY MIGHT GAIN INSIGHT into THE WORDS of the TORAH. They found written in the law (Torah) how the Lord had commanded through Moses that the sons of Israel should LIVE IN BOOTHS DURING THE FEAST OF THE SEVENTH MONTH. So they proclaimed and circulated a proclamation in all their cities and in Jerusalem, saying, “Go out to the hills, and bring OLIVE BRANCHES and WILD OLIVE BRANCHES, myrtle branches, palm branches and branches of other leafy trees, (this represents Jews and gentiles, ALL NATIONS) to make booths, as it is written.” … The entire assembly of those who had returned from the captivity made booths and lived in them. The sons of Israel had indeed not done so from the days of Joshua the son of Nun to that day.” EZRA 8:13-17.

How long did they stay outside in these booths? For 7 days. This Feast is not just a Feast to remind us of God’s provision during Israel’s 40-year wilderness sojourn, but also a future event that has not happened yet. This Feast is also called “Feast of the Ingathering”. “You shall celebrate the Feast of Weeks, that is, THE FIRST FRUITS of the wheat harvest and the Feast of INGATHERING at the turn of the year” (Ex. 34:22).
The bible says that a day unto the Lord is a thousand years and a thousand years a day. Let’s get more understanding. Many are talking about Jesus-Yeshua coming back but when you study HIS Feast you can become more in tune with what is going to happen. The King is not going to just come back AND we all float up to heaven, sit on clouds and meet with our relatives… the end. No, He is going to come and fight for his people and a great earthquake will take place. After these events he is going to tabernacle with us for a 1,000 years. Let’s look at more verses.
“And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now AMONG THE PEOPLE, and HE WILL DWELL WITH THEM.” Revelations 21:3. There will be a feast of Tabernacles in the millennial kingdom. So we read above about the people in Ezra’s day getting branches and creating booths for this Feast called the Feast of Tabernacles or Sukkot.
There is a fearful statement in Zechariah chapter 14 about what will happen to the nations who fight against Yahweh’s chosen people. “Now this will be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the peoples who have gone to war against Jerusalem; THEIR FLESH WILL ROT while they stand on their feet, and THEIR EYES WILL ROT IN THEIR SOCKETS, and their tongue will rot in their mouth.” Zechariah 14:12.Sounds horrific, but you won’t hear much of this preached on Sunday morning. Now I want to expound on the verses that explain what will happen to the nations who do not keep this Feast. I also want to ask you a serious question… Does your church congregation honor The Lord’s HOLY Feast? If they don’t perhaps you should ask why not, since one day the whole world will. Back to Zechariah 14: 17-19…
“ Then it will come about that ANY WHO ARE LEFT OF ALL THE NATIONS that went against Jerusalem will go up from year to year to worship THE KING, the LORD of hosts, AND TO CELEBRATE THE FEAST OF BOOTHS. And it will be that whichever of the FAMILIES of THE EARTH does not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, there will be NO RAIN on them. If the family of Egypt does not go up or enter, then no rain will fall on them; it will be THE PLAGUE with which THE LORD SMITES the nations who do not go up to celebrate THE FEAST OF BOOTHS.” Now we just read that the nations who don’t keep this Feast will be punished and yet most main-stream Christian churches dont teach this. The last verse in Zechariah 14 says, And there will no longer be a Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts in that day.”
Now what did he mean by that? The Canaanites worshiped many gods and you can read all about the different types of gods in Ezekiel chapter 8. No more Ishtar, Tammuz, or Baal. These are gods worshiped every year unknowingly by Christians. The last verse makes it clear that in Yahweh’s congregation it will be pure worship, unadulterated and holy. But the GREATEST SHELTER is the one mentioned in Isaiah 4:5, “The LORD will create a cloud of smoke during the day and a glowing flame of fire during the night over the whole area of Mount Zion and over the assembly. His glory will cover everything.”


Kim Davis and Pork Rinds

pork rinds.grid-6x2

Kim Davis looked at a young man and said, “You are passionate about what you believe and so am I.” This is what we have right now. We have people saying, “Don’t you see that the painting is a Monet” and others saying, “It’s clearly a Rembrandt.” If you know anything about art you know that these two artist were extravagantly different. Many are screaming out with what they believe is right and wrong. If The Lord told Kim not to sign a paper, then she should obey Him, but there is more to the story.

I personally have always tried to get people to think outside of the box. Many times I root for the sinner or the hurting crippled sheep who have wandered off. Why? I can relate to them.  My Savior Yeshua-Jesus said, “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good–except God alone.” Luke 18:19.  It seems I tried to become as holy (Good) as the Christian churches I was raised in, but I never could attain to the holiness many seem to have.

When they pointed fingers at me and told me I shouldn’t drink a glass of wine, I went through the whole entire concordance and found every verse there was on why I should, like this one found in Proverbs 31:6, “Let beer be for those who are perishing, wine for those who are in anguish!” Yes, I had a rebellious attitude; but it gave me BALANCE after the fact. When they pointed at me and said smoking is a sin and you will go to hell for it, again, I went through my concordance and found every verse on gluttony and obesity to point back at them. Why? Again, they made me feel dirty. They made me feel unloved, judged and very unholy. I started thinking about all the things I would have to change in order to sit on one of their pews. I did eventually sit with them and even was allowed to teach at a few places. So, as I was pondering all the comments directed at people like me, who cherish Yah’s Word but still don’t agree with what is going on in the media, I wanted to expand again on that.

When we dont understand His word we can err in truth.

“…for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” 1 Peter 1:16. This sentence could be directed at many sins but it was taken from the Torah concerning pork and shellfish and other animals created as garbage collectors and vacuum cleaners. All the “New Testament” verses come from the “Old Testament”.  Let’s look at that.

“Every swarming thing that swarms on the ground is detestable; it shall not be eaten. Whatever goes on its belly, and whatever goes on all fours, or whatever has many feet, any swarming thing that swarms on the ground, you shall not eat, for they are detestable. You shall not make yourselves detestable with any swarming thing that swarms, and you shall not defile yourselves with them, and become unclean through them. For I am the LORD your God. Consecrate yourselves therefore, AND BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY.” Leviticus 11:41-44 NASB. Yes, Leviticus eleven, the whole chapter is about pigs, bats, camels, catfish and so forth. People say that Paul wrote about one man eats with weak faith and that God changed his mind about what animals we can eat now. Paul was speaking about vegetarians. They use Peter’s dream of a sheet and other passages out of context. Peter even told the Lord after his dream that he had never eaten anything detestable and this book was written some 30 years after Yeshua was raised from the dead. The animals in the dream were to let him know that the Gentiles could come into the kingdom and the covenant.

The animals in Leviticus have not changed. They are still designed by the creator to clean up the ocean and the land from polluted dead things. Sadly, after much careful study, I found pastors had not known the truth on the matter.

The bible says it’s an abomination to eat such things and in Isaiah 66:17, it uses the same word used for homosexuality “detestable”.  Much is being said right now about what people find to be abominations. You might not think eating pork is wrong and for you it’s okay, but for me it is no longer okay. I used to eat pork and point out other sins people had and was not aware of my own. What is sin according to God’s word? Take a glass bowl blown in a glass company by a creator who created the bowl to hold a salad or fruit, now take the bowl and throw it in the floor and shatter it. It no longer works in the fashion it was designed to work in. It is out of order. Many things we do go against the order designed by the creator.

If I strongly believe that pork is going against the order of food created for me to eat, then that is a sin for me. Whether its a spiritual belief or not, there are many reasons not to eat it outside of ones religion.

Doctor Mercola had this to say about pork, “According to a surprising new investigation by Consumer Reports1, 69 percent of all raw pork samples tested — nearly 200 samples in total — were contaminated with the dangerous bacteria Yersinia enterocolitica, which causes fever and gastrointestinal illness with diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach cramps.”

Nearly all pigs raised in the U.S. come from Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations, or CAFO’s. These inhumane environments are typically toxic breeding grounds for pathogens.

These animals spend their short, miserable lives on concrete and steel grates. Antibiotics are given liberally with their feed, making their massive waste even more toxic.”

Does that mean if I get a job at Kroger and they decide to sell pork in their meat department I can refuse to allow all pork eaters to eat it? Can I close my register and forbid to ring up every person in line because they sell pork now? Should I not package it in the meat department and put a seal of approval on the package even if I am not eating it? You may be thinking, “But Bonnie we are talking about homosexuality and it’s an abomination!” We just read about pork being an abomination.

Or take drunkenness: should I work at a restaurant that sells alcohol if it goes against my belief system? I live in a dry county. Let’s say they hire me at a local restaurant and that restaurant gets a liquor license after the fact. Should I be entitled to forbid serving a table wine if the establishment I work at decides to sell it? Does that establishment have a right to sell wine due to a law passed and a license permitting them too? Can I stop them from drinking wine by refusing to wait on any table whether they drink or not? Should I take a stand and make Kroger stop selling pork if they started selling it after I was hired? Ponder, meditate and ask questions about why you believe what you believe.

Yeshua told us would happen in His word and also what the KNOWLEDGE of Truth is. He warned us of days to come and His Word will come forth. He said we would be put in prison and beheaded for the sake of our testimony. He gave details about what the world would look like in THE LAST DAYS.

“But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come.  For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,  unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good,  treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,  holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these.  For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak women weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

2nd Timothy 3:1-7 NASB.

I hope this information made you think and ponder. I pray you will read and study deeper than ever before. Whether you believe my way or another way, remember love is the greatest gift. I hope you will pray for Kim and also for everyone who is hurting. Yeshua said it was the sick who needed doctors, when the church folks pointed out that he ate with sinners. Will you be a doctor? I’ve been to many different Physicians. Some helped me and some made me feel worse. Others made me swear that I would never go back to another doctor as long as I live. Why? Was it because they were ignorant and unlearned in medicine? No, it was their lack of compassion. Something I think we all could stand more of.

Love Much?

I Have been a little disheartened by the post I have been reading from Christians concerning homosexuals.
There are some people who look at homosexuals with disgust and they seem to love using the word abomination. There’s not much love in that. I’ve made so many mistakes in my life and Have committed many abominations.
Pride is an abomination.
Here’s a short list of abominations.
A proud look (Pro. 6:16-17)
A lying tongue (Pro. 6:17; 12:22)
Hands that shed innocent blood ((Pro. 6:17)
A wicked scheming heart (Pro. 6:18)
Feet that are quick to sin (Pro. 6:18)
A false witness that speaks lies (Pro. 6:19)
A sower of discord (Pro. 6:19)
Wickedness (Pro. 8:7)
A false balance or scale (Pro. 11:1)
The proud of heart (Pro. 16:5)
The older I get the more I realize I need to be looking in the Mirror and not pointing fingers. Showing more love to people and not thinking myself better than others.
Jesus said This to the church leaders of his day, “Truly I tell you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you.
Matthew 21:31.

By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
People say I love the person, but I hate the sin.
Paul and Silas were in prison, and there was sewage up to their waist and probably rats. They had been beaten by the jailer, but they were praising and singing songs and exalting the Lord! That is when the jailer who had beaten them wanted what they had! They didn’t scream and yell at him and tell him that he was evil, and wicked and was going to burn in hell forever…they didn’t scream and yell at Satan and bind this and curse that.
Can we pour some love on people and just love them where they are at?
Hey, the one who’s been forgiven much loves much.

Kim Davis and Lawlessness


I have tried to bite my tongue on the Kim Davis issue, but I feel led to expound on it tonight.  For those of you who are not aware of who Kim is, she is a county clerk in KY, who has been refusing to issue marriage license to homosexual couples. I see non-Christian articles regarding her and how she is to obey the law of the land and how she is acting out in lawlessness. Then I see post from Christians saying she is brave and doing the right thing by not giving out marriage license. So what does the Bible really say about this topic?

Several people in the bible worked for the government. Not only did they work for the Babylonians, Persians and Egyptians, but also the Romans. Daniel was given the Babylonian name Belteshazzar, while his companions are given the Babylonian names Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. These are names of the Babylonian gods such as Nebo the moon god, and Baal. After Daniel interprets a dream, this happens, “Then Belshazzar gave orders, and they clothed Daniel with purple and put a necklace of gold around his neck, and issued a proclamation concerning him that he now had authority as the third ruler in the kingdom.” Daniel 5:29. Daniel and the Hebrew boys obeyed all the orders under the Persian rulers until it involved them worshiping another god. If the law of the land said to issue license for homosexuals, they would have obeyed. If it was to bake a cake for a wedding, they would have obeyed. When food that was more than likely sacrificed to idols was set before Daniel, he went and ASKED PERMISSION to eat vegetables. He did not refuse to eat the food set before him. Let’s look at that.

“But Daniel made up his mind that he would not defile himself with the king’s choice food or with the wine which he drank; so he sought permission from the commander of the officials that he might not defile himself.” Daniel 1:8 NASB. And verse nine says that GOD GRANTED HIM FAVOR.

Same goes for Joseph, “Moreover, Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Though I am Pharaoh, yet without your permission no one shall raise his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.” Then Pharaoh named Joseph Zaphenath-paneah; and he gave him Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera priest of On, as his wife. And Joseph went forth over the land of Egypt.” Genesis 41:44-45 NASB.

Priest of On? On, was the city of the sun god worship Re. Joseph did not say, “I cannot take this woman to wife.” He would not have insulted the Pharaoh.

Joseph, Daniel and the Hebrew boys did not refuse to take the new names of these gods, nor did they refuse to wear their clothing and jewelry and Joseph did not refuse the wife given to him.

“Dina d’malchuta dina,”  means the law of the land is the law [and must be obeyed], is a phrase repeated numerous times in the Talmud (Jewish law and writings). This phrase is attributed to the sage Samuel. According to Samuel, there is no question that a Jew must obey the laws of the land in which he/she resides unless that law directly informed the people to worship idols or other gods.

Romans 13 says this, “Everyone is to obey the governing authorities. For there is no authority that is not from God, and the existing authorities have been placed where they are by God.  Therefore, whoever resists the authorities is resisting what God has instituted; AND THOSE WHO RESIST WILL BRING JUDGMENT ON THEMSELVES. 13:1-2 CJB. Perhaps you do not think God placed Obama in office? The bible in multiple scriptures declares that He does set up rulers. Let’s look at that.

“He removes kings and establishes kings; He gives wisdom to wise men And knowledge to men of understanding.” Daniel 2:21 NASB.

“I will gather together all the armies of the north under King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, whom I have appointed as my deputy (servant). I will bring them all against this land and its people and against the surrounding nations. I will completely destroy you and make you an object of horror and contempt and a ruin forever.” Jeremiah 25:9 NLT. We should fear God more than the men. So what else does scripture say about this topic?

We do see a different circumstance in Acts 4, but it involves the Religious rulers and not the Roman government. Let’s read that.  “And when they had summoned them (Peter & John), they (Elders, Scribes and High Priest) commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus.  But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to give heed to you rather than to God, you be the judge; for we cannot stop speaking about what we have seen and heard.” Acts 4:18-20 NASB.

And again we see this type of answer from the apostles but it is directed at church leadership.

“When they had brought them, they stood them before the Council. The high priest questioned them, saying, “We gave you strict orders not to continue teaching in this name, and yet, you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and intend to bring this man’s blood upon us.”  But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men.” Acts 5:27-29 NASB.

However, even greater than this is what happened after Naaman was healed of leprosy and if these verses don’t convince you that Kim Davis needs to issue a marriage license, I don’t know what will.

 Then, with his whole retinue, he returned to the man of God, went and stood before him, and said, “Well, I’ve learned that there is no God in all the earth except in Isra’el; therefore, please accept a present from your servant.”  But Elisha answered, “As Adonai lives, before whom I stand, I will not accept it.” And despite his urging him to take it, he refused So Na‘aman said, “If you won’t take it, then please let your servant be given as much earth as two mules can carry; because from now on, your servant will offer neither burnt offerings nor sacrifices to other gods, but only to Adonai. Except this, and may Adonai forgive your servant for it: when my master goes into the temple of Rimmon to worship there, and he leans on my hand, and I bow down in the temple of Rimmon — when I bow down, may Adonai forgive your servant for this.” Elisha said to him, “Go in peace.”2nd Kings 5:15-19 CJB.

Na’aman admits to the mightiest prophet of his day that Adonai was the only God, but that when his master (Ruler of the land) bowed down to Rimmon, forgive me he said because my heart will not be towards this god, but Yahweh. The voice of God in that day was the mouth of the prophets and you see what this great prophet Elisha said concerning this, “GO IN PEACE”… He didn’t say you shall disobey your master and ruler and not bow down when he leans on you and takes you into the temple of HIS GOD. Why? Because the man had just confessed with his heart that there was no other God but Adonai.

Kim may be convicted not to sign her name on something, but signing her name is not signing her heart.

I personally have broken the law of the land so I am not trying to judge this lady, but just show some verses for clarification on the matter. Hope this helps.

The Sin of Sodom


At times I try to get people to think outside of what Christendom has taught in the past and is teaching now.
Most Christians teach that we need to keep 9 of the 10 Commandments and that we are no longer held to The Law (instructions).  Also taught is that the 10 have been taken down to these two.  “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. Love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22:37 NIV. Jesus- Yeshua said, “All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:40 NIV.

Jesus-Yeshua went on to say, ” …until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.” Matt. 5:18 NIV. But people remove what they want and keep what they want. I call it copy and paste theology or cherry picking.

Jesus said, in the verse above, that all the law (Torah) and the prophets, hang on those 2 verses. Picture a coat hanger or coat rack. Can you hang a coat on air?

I find it interesting, when I see Christians posting articles on social media from The Law to make sure a certain group, such as homosexuals, knows what they think about them. When I make this type of remark many think I am giving people a free pass to sin, haven’t studied the New Testament, or the book of Hebrews and so forth. They quote Paul and check to see if I agree with Paul’s writings because they want to make sure I am not saying that this sin is okay, even though it doesn’t fit in the 10 boxes.
There is no 10 commandment that says, “A man shall not lie with a man.” Then the rebuttal is but Paul said this and that. Yes he did and he also said, “So then, THE LAW IS HOLY, and the commandment is HOLY, righteous and good.” Romans 7:12 NIV.

There is no 10 commandment that says don’t sleep with animals, no, that’s part of the law. “‘Do not have sexual relations with an animal and defile yourself with it.” Leviticus 18:23 NIV. I feel sorry for any animal that has had to deal with this abuse. But since this is the law and we are no longer to keep the law, we can throw this out, because the law is about stoning people to death right? Or is that the curse of the law? Is that the moral law?  Think, ponder and ask questions when you read The Bible. What is a three strand cord? etc. I’m not asking these for an answer, but for you to MEDITATE on.

I hear this from time to time, “Bonnie you have gotten involved in some Jewish cult and we are not Jewish. You are part of the Hebrew roots possibly and I have been warned about them.  No, I don’t attend. So back to the law (Torah), which I broke Saturday by selling 5 books before the sun set.  Never mind, that’s not the law, but one of the 10 Commandments “Remember the Sabbath to keep it holy” . Actually that is also part of the law found in Exodus 20:8, Leviticus 19:3. Genesis 2:2 and so on. Let’s look at the law (Torah) again and moral issues.

The penalty for homosexual acts (Lev. 20:13) was no more severe than the punishments for adultery, incest, or for cursing one’s parents. Even a man who had sex with his wife while she was having a ‘period,’ was to be “cut off from among the people.” Ouch. And Remember, breaking the Sabbath was a death sentence. So, let’s look at Lot and ponder cake baking.

Have you ever studied Lot’s behavior when the men beat his door down to rape the men (angels) who had come?

“Bring them out to us! We want to have sex with them!” Lot went out to them and stood in the doorway, closing the door behind him, and said, “Please, my brothers, don’t do such a wicked thing. Look here, I have two daughters who are virgins. Please, let me bring them out to you, and you can do with them what seems good to you; but don’t do anything to these men, since they are guests in my house.” Genesis 19:5-8. One commentary says this,
“Lot would never give over his daughters to the people of Sodom and he understands that these people have no interest in his daughters. Lot’s offer is meant to be offensive and indeed the people of the town immediately recognize that they are being criticized – “This one fellow came in to sojourn and he will need play the judge [he’s judging us]?” This attack by Lot on standard immigration procedure in Sodom makes him the target of their rage in the same way the illegal aliens were the target just a few verses earlier: “now will we deal worse with thee, than with them.”

The Prophets and Peter compare the nation of Israel to Sodom in Isaiah 1:9-10, 3:9, Jeremiah 23:14, Ezekiel 16:41-56 and 2nd Peter 2:7.
Sodom and Gomorrah were judged because of grave sin. Genesis 18:20 says, “And the Lord said, ‘The outcry of Sodom and Gomorrah is indeed great, and their sin is exceedingly grave.'” Indeed, not even ten righteous people could be found in the city. However, there was more going on than sodomy, rape and murder.

“‘Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.” Ezekiel 16:49 NIV. So much to ponder when we begin to look at sin.

One of the other sins in the Bible was witchcraft, astrology and fortune telling. They were commanded to stone them to death
“.’A man or woman who is a medium or spiritist among you must be put to death. You are to stone them; their blood will be on their own heads.'” Leviticus 20:27 NIV.
I see through my newsfeed on a daily basis items where you have to enter your birthdate or name to find out something about your personal character. I get chain letters that say pass this prayer to 10 people and get a blessing and so on and so forth. Is that similar? Are we also guilty of sins like sexual lust, building kingdoms here on earth where thieves break in and steal, gossip, backbiting and pride?

I think we all need to study more, think about our own personal sins more and apply the law of LOVE more. What if we went ahead and baked a cake? Didn’t attend the wedding but continued to show love? What if they would really know we were Believers by our love? “Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.” John 13:35 NIV.

Strange Fire


There is a FIRE today that has infiltrated the church due to men who have crept in among us and we were UNAWARE. We were blind. Jude says, “For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ (Yeshua the Messiah) our only Sovereign and Lord.” Jude 1:4 NIV.

He said they had crept in UNAWARE. People were unaware. God first pointed them out in the book of Genesis and then in Leviticus. He continued to reveal them to us throughout the BIBLE. You may have missed this unless you were a careful reader. These men and women use the grace of God to live the way they desire and they justify it in their own minds.

Jude compares them to clouds without water. This means they appear to be full of the Lord’s spirit, but are false, empty of promise. It is like the fig tree Jesus cursed. It had leaves and looked like it would have fruit but when the Lord went to get a fig, it was empty.


“They are clouds without rain, blown along by the wind; autumn trees, WITHOUT FRUIT and uprooted—TWICE DEAD. They are wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shame; wandering stars, for whom blackest darkness has been reserved forever.” Jude 1:12-13 NIV.

Jude says, “Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, and have run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.” 1:11 NIV.  CAIN WAS JEALOUS OF HIS BROTHER, so much so, he killed him.

Balaam was a type of false prophet who wanted to get wealth out of his gifting. 1st TIMOTHY 6:5 WARNS US OF THESE MEN AND He SAYS THAT THEY WILL THINK THAT GAIN IS GODLINESS.

Korah wanted to be in the spotlight and usurp Moses and Aaron. Again it’s jealousy and self-seeking.

Again I warn you there is a strange fire inside the church today. I say “The Church” because I am not talking about one particular denomination or title. It’s mostly powerless. It has a form of godliness but denies the power thereof. It performs and boast of miracles but it is still powerless.

I think most involved in the Christian world have heard of STRANGE FIRE.  Exodus 30:9 SAYS, “You shall not offer any strange incense on this altar…” NASB. Aaron’s son’s, Nadab and Abihu did not do that, their incense was fine but they offered STRANGE FIRE.

The problem again was “STRANGE”. They were supposed to get the fire for their censers from the brazen altar. The brazen altar was the altar where sacrifices or “sin offerings” were made. It is regarded as a “type and shadow”.

“ Now Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took their respective firepans, and after putting fire in them, placed incense on it and offered strange fire before the LORD, which He had not commanded them. And fire came out from the presence of the LORD and consumed them, and they died before the LORD.

Then Moses said to Aaron, “It is what the LORD spoke, saying, ‘By those who come near Me I will be treated as holy, And before all the people I will be honored.’” So Aaron, therefore, kept silent.” Leviticus 10:1-3 NASB.

Aaron’s sons charred in their priestly garments were carried out of the tabernacle. Can you imagine watching the Lord strike your sons to the death? I can’t. It reminds me of the couple in Acts who lied to the Holy Spirit and were struck dead.


During worship when people are shaking and speaking loudly in tongues, laughing uncontrollably and flopping on the floor, jerking back and forth, that is when ALL EYES ARE ON THEM AND NOT ON HIM. When we are watching other people and trying to determine if their heart is right, our eyes again are not on Him but on people. Paul said, “Therefore let one who speaks in a tongue pray that he may interpret. For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my mind is unfruitful. What is the outcome then? I will pray with the spirit and I will pray with the mind also; I will sing with the spirit and I will sing with the mind also. Otherwise if you bless in the spirit only, how will the one who fills the place of the ungifted say the “Amen” at your giving of thanks, since he does not know what you are saying?” 1 Corinthians 14:14-16 NASB.

It’s a private matter unless you have an interpreter.


Isaiah chapter 6, “In the year of King Uzziah’s death I SAW THE LORD sitting on a throne, LOFTY and EXALTED, with the train of His robe filling the temple. Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings: with two HE COVERED HIS FACE, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one called out to another and said, “Holy, Holy, Holy, is the LORD of hosts, The whole earth is full of His glory.” 6:1-3 NASB.

The seraphim covered themselves as not to distract Isaiah from who was to get all the glory.

“And the foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of him who called out, while the temple was filling with smoke. Then I said, “WOE IS ME, for I am ruined! Because I am a man of UNCLEAN LIPS, And I live among a people of unclean lips; For MY EYES have seen THE KING, the LORD of hosts.” 6:4-5 NASB.

Notice the smoke rose from the throne room and then immediately Isaiah sees his sin and says woe is me! We have a generation that won’t say that, they say blessed and highly favored are we and yes we are a blessed people, but we also need the blood of The Lamb and His Holy fire to blow upon us.

There is a fire that burns and the smoke of a false Shekinah does blow upon the people. This fire has a certain taint, a certain odor about it. Your breath can stink and you can be unaware but the people around you will know. The fire Aaron’s son’s used was to come from the brazen altar, the place where the lamb was slain, the only way to heaven. This represented Yeshua. IT WAS A SHADOW OF THINGS TO COME.

Aaron’s sons did not offer this STRANGE WORLDLY fire to witchcraft or Satanism or some false god. No, they offered it to the Lord HaShem almighty. They, like many others, are offering a strange fire to The Lord Adonai. Possibly through ignorance. How does strange fire get into God’s house? IT CREPT IN AND WE WERE UNAWARE.

When we read about these teachings that had come into the church, we learn that the church of Ephesus could not bear the presence of FALSEHOOD (The doctrines of the Nicolations) and took steps to get rid of it. BUT THEY HAD NO LOVE… Not so with the church in Thyatira, They were abounding IN LOVE, BUT HAD COMPROMISED THE TRUTH and had fallen into sin and strange fire. We need balance. Love plus purity and holiness and most of all the REAL FIRE.
