Who Are You?

The video speaks for itself so I am not writing a lot of commentary on this post.  There’s just going to be the scripture passages, this prayer below, and this question “Who are you?”  I hope you are blessed by this message.  The video is shaky, but the intention is solid. If it makes you dizzy, listen with your eyes closed.

God of All there is, was, and ever will be and in Whose very Being all possibilities exist,

We thank You for Your Presence in, through, and among us. As the Psalmist David asked, “What is humanity that You are mindful of us and the children of humanity that You visit us?” And yet you have more than visited us.  You have named us as Your children . We have not done anything to earn Your Name.  In fact many of us have even worked to distance ourselves from you.  We are prodigal children who take the Life that only You can give and then go out into the world claiming to do it on our own.  And what do You do when we return as we all must?  You welcome us and love us as though we never left. And you do this not because of who we are on our own, but because of who You are and because of who we are in You.  Because it is in You that we were called into being and it is only in You that we can truly live.  Amen.

Exodus 3

11 But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and that I should bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?”

12 So He said, “I will certainly be with you. And this shall be a sign to you that I have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God on this mountain.”

13 Then Moses said to God, “Indeed, when I come to the children of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they say to me, ‘What is His name?’ what shall I say to them?”

14 And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” 15 Moreover God said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: ‘The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations.’

1 John 3

1 Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. 3 And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

4 Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. 5 And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. 6 Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him.

7 Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. 8 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. 9 Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.

  1. You are definitely my son. Given the controversy between Jew and Gentile, however, regarding the question of whether or not the “The Anointed One”, known to “Christians” (Christ like) as Jesus (Yeshua or given to me as Yahshua (My name shall be in his name), I believe it should be noted that The “Jews” are a chosen people whom G-D set apart for a special purpose. Jews do not have to believe that “Jesus” of the Bible is their promised Messiah because they obey and worship ELYON (The Most High) Although, it is not necessarily anything wrong if they do believe. It must be understood, however, that “Jesus”, himself, told the people not to ask him for anything because he was returning to G-D. He said to pray to The Father, G-D, in his name (using him as a reference) because he had fulfilled the work that The Father (G-D) had sent him to do. The Most High, speaking through The Prophet Isaiah, said in Isaiah 62:4-12 “Nevermore shall you be called “Forsaken,” Nor shall your land be called “Desolate”; But you shall be called “I delight in her,” And your land “Espoused.” For the L-RD takes delight in you, And Your land shall be espoused. As a youth espouses a maiden, Your sons shall espouse you; And as a bridegroom rejoices over his bridle, So will your G-D rejoice over you. His recompense before Him. And they (The Gentile Believers) shall be called “The Holy People, The Redeemed of the L-RD,” and you shall be called, “Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken.”

    Some politician recently said that only “Christians” were going to heaven. Well, considering that most people who call themselves Christians, are not actually Christlike, there will be plenty of room in heaven for the rest of the believers in the Most High. I had a vision recently, and in the vision, I was standing on some clouds looking at a beautiful, indescribable city, in the center of which, was a magnificent temple glimmering with colors that I have never seen in this world. There were people lined up at the gates to go inside and they were being ushered in by angels who had a book. The people were of all races and creeds and dressed in different attire depicting their heritage and/or religion. There were 12 gates and all of the people went through the different gates according to their heritages and their “religions”. When they all finally got through the individual gates, they were all in the center of the Temple together, in one place, all races and creeds and colors, with different beliefs and they all looked up and there was no ceiling to the Temple. Instead the Opening led up to heaven. It was so radiant that the clouds looked like a crystal staircase leading up to the throne of G-D who appeared as a Spiritual essence. All of the people began to weep and fall on their faces before The Most High G-D.

    I think that it is important for racists, atheists, murderers, blasphemers and all humankind to understand that every living thing exists from the Breath of G-D and every living thing must return to HIM. HE is no respecter of persons. And He doesn’t want us to be either. Humans make their own private hell. G-D said everything HE made was Good, so the evil ones must be the children of Satan, one would think, but then G-D made Satan too. Oh well. I think you should have gone to Yeshiva, but nevertheless, for this purpose did you come into the world.

    As they say in Yiddish: Let me Kvell a little. I am honored to have been chosen as the instrument by which you came into the world.
