Is it a sin to eat animals?
My Choicest Flock
(#096 from Suffer Well Devotional Series©)
That suffering one, he’s Mine. That weeping one, he’s Mine. That rejected one, he’s Mine. That scared one, he’s Mine. Have I not told you, “It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick?” (Luke 5:31) I do not care about natural ability. I am focused on the heart (center of intellect, mind) and the issues of spiritual transformation. The transformation from foolishness (ego driven mind) to wisdom (righteousness driven mind) is what brings Me glory. Those who come to Me “sick” are a perfect fit, for who would be left to come if not the sick?
Your heroes are nothing to Me. Your famous too, do not impress Me. Your wise, all of them devoid of true wisdom. I Am not impressed at My dust in its natural state. A broken and contrite spirit is what pleases Me (Isaiah 66:2). From the old creation to the new, that is the transformation project I like. My characteristics of greatness are humility, peace, wisdom, and joy in the spirit, not like what man values. Fallen man would rather celebrate money, status, and praise from other men.
If these words bother you, you are probably in danger of being devoured. Yes, if you leave the flock I cannot watch over you. Wolves and lions wait for you, and they have a taste for you, as you have been feeding them for quite some time. My flock knows its Shepherd. My flock would never leave My care; they would be afraid to leave My care.
View things as I do. Understand My wisdom. Desire My righteousness as opposed to worldly values. I can only bless what I approve, and I stand in opposition to your fleshly desires. Give in! Succumb to Me at all cost. You could not possibly perceive what I have planned for you; it’s more than you could ask or imagine. If you would taste even a morsel from the table I’ve prepared for you, you would dine with Me and never eat from the pig trough again.
Then he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything. But when he came to himself, he said, “How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!” (Luke 15:15-17)
This is the only answer for a Coronavirus Cure.
If You Seek
(#072 from Suffer Well Devotional Series©)
“So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” (Luke 11:9)
Do you understand the “you” and the “ask, seek and knock” of My command? Do you see the choice, the pattern of having to choose? The “and” in “ask and; seek and; knock and” proves that effort is required. The “you” brings to light that no one can do it for you, not Abraham; not Moses; not Paul; only you. This command reveals many mysteries.
He can be found. Yes, He may even hide at times. Perhaps He’s playing hide and seek with you. Perhaps He even disappears for a while, on purpose. Consider, again, from yesterday’s devotion, Lamentations 3:7-8:
He has walled me in so I cannot escape;
He placed heavy chains on me.
Indeed, when I cry out, calling for help,
He shuts out my prayer.
He hides at times because He intends to elicit effort from His children. No effort, no revelation. You get it? The doubt; the fear; the wondering: it’s all in your head! Do you want to be healed? He is the cure for all dis-ease. Do you want to fly? He is the answer for all of your hopes and dreams.
Yes, much like the little children playing the game called “hot or cold,” you must ask, seek, and knock to find what you are looking for. His Spirit is calling out to you. Can you hear the whisper? “You’re getting cold; change directions.” “Now you’re getting warmer,” the Spirit beckons. “Hot, you’re getting hot,” your senses are now alive with anticipation!
No doubt, He is here to help, but you must provide the effort. He must see your desire to find Him and all He has for you. Staying lukewarm will not end well (Revelation 3:16). Won’t you be hot for Him? Will the words of Paul be the banner over your life? “To live [capture the holy mindset] is Messiah, and to die [let go of all ‘self’ ambition] is gain.” (Philippians 1:21) He is waiting.

Rise, rise, to the loftiest heights,
Find Me your own way?
Anger, resentment, pride and strife,
Building towers made of clay.
Pride, the mortar it takes to cure,
To your own destruction it sets.
Your path to heaven, seventy-angels obscure,
Your ascension their mission besets.
How can a unified structure start,
When not one man prefers the other?
Build towers in your hardened heart?
Instead, first love your brother!
Rise, rise, to the loftiest heights,
To find Me this is the way.
Love, forgiveness, self-sacrifice,
No greater-love than one’s life to lay.
You never know when the soil of your heart (the ability to cultivate Yahweh’s thoughts) will be hardened permanently from a famine of hearing His words (Amos 8:11). The mandate to, “seek Yahweh while He may be found;” and to “call on Him while He is near” (Isaiah 55:6) had better be taken seriously, as this could be your last day.
Listen loved one, the cry of the Father’s heart is for unity. He sacrificed His own Son in order that His people would be of one mind, one speech, and one body (Ephesians 4:1-6). Nevertheless, there are many members in this one body and all the “body parts” do not have the same function. (Romans 12:4) With this in mind, should one man (the modern-day pastor) reign supreme over all the functions of the body? Sadly, the “church” has supported such practices and men of position have enjoyed the grandeur. Woe to you shepherds who aim to please the masses in order to preserve your position (Matthew 18:12-14).
But, new things are coming and the “old guard” will be removed with a new breed of shepherds to take their place (Jeremiah 23:1-4). They will execute judgment and righteousness in the earth (v. 5). These new shepherds will have no need to chastise or manipulate the congregation into submission. They will not be insecure about their own limitations, but rather embrace personal challenges as supernaturally inserted thorns of humility, perfectly placed by the Father (2 Corinthians 12:7). In this new paradigm, the talents of the congregation will inspire mutual submission.
It is time to rise up as the body, together as one, and listen for the Master’s voice. Woe to you shepherds who refuse to obey all that’s commanded of you, to you who fail to heed Yahweh’s whisper while it can still be heard.

It makes no sense to throw a life preserver to a dead man right? How can a person die and still be be born again if he died? I talk about this in this video as we ponder Yahweh’s dreams for us.
My Dreams for You
(#028 from Suffer Well Devotional Series©)
Come and hear, all you who fear the Almighty, and I will declare what He has done for my soul. (Psalm 66:16)
Listen to My voice; I know it will soothe your soul, for this is what I have planned. What desires have I put in your heart (Psalm 37:4)? What passion do you have for My will? You can run from Me, but you cannot hide forever. You cannot ignore your longing for Me indefinitely; it is ultimately inescapable.
Although you may backslide, you will return, for who has resisted My will (Romans 9:19)? I share the dreams you have for your life because they are My dreams for you. I created them specifically for you. I will give you your heart’s desires and not withhold, from you, the request of your lips (Psalm 21:2).
Remember, as My servant, you cannot serve two masters (Luke 16:13). My Son redeemed you and forever changed your future. When you resist your calling, your ego speaks to Me. “I can find comfort in serving another!” That is like putting My Son back on the torture stake. Your ongoing sinfulness is My evidence that, if left to your own devices, you would murder again. In this you indict yourself.
Surrender, My child, to the desires that I have for you. If you do, you will have all you dream of. I Am One whose promises can be tested and always found true.
I Am not like a man that I should lie (Numbers 23:19).
All My ways are perfect (Psalm 18:30).
I will make all things known to you (Ephesians 1:9; 3:5).
I will not leave you or forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:6).
My love never fails (1 Corinthians 13:8).
I Am here. Will you have Me?

And again Peter denied it. And immediately a rooster crowed. (John 18:27)
Every time you doubt, a rooster crows;
Every time you rage, a rooster crows;
Hold a record of wrongs; a rooster crows;
Boast; a rooster crows;
Strife, a rooster crows;
Bitterness, a rooster crows;
Envy, a rooster crows;
Wrath, a rooster crows;
Fear; a rooster crows;
Anxiety, a rooster crows;
Lust; a rooster crows;
Pride; a rooster crows;
Unforgiveness, a rooster crows;
Every time you sin, a rooster crows;
Your present denial that this is true… and a rooster is crowing.
Your choices and emotions speak loudly to Yahweh. Your predominant mindset tells the story. It says that you don’t really believe what His Son did for you, at least not the fullness of it. You can accept that He is your redeemer, that He secured a place for you with His Father in eternity. But, that He is ruler over your life here on earth, and that He has empowered you to resist sin, this you have not truly apprehended. Rather, your life testifies that you believe there is a way to prosper outside of His will? Oh, recognizing this is not easy to stomach, but submitting to His rulership in this life is just as necessary as in the life to come.
Yahshua has been exalted above and made ruler over all things in heaven and on earth (Philippians 2:9-11). He sits at the right hand of power (Matthew 26:64), at Yahweh’s throne of Majesty (Hebrews 8:1; 12:2), and has been given all authority in heaven and on earth (Matthew 28:18), which, of course, He passed on to you (Luke 10:19). Notice it says, “In heaven AND on earth.”
The power to live righteously here on earth is your inheritance. You have been endowed with the same power the Father used to raise His Son from the dead (Ephesians 1:19). When you live in anything less than the pure life He has given you as an inheritance, you deny the Son. Yes, just like Peter, your denial manifests in the life you live and the decisions you make. And your life is speaking to all who are watching. Are you preaching “Jesus” while roosters are crowing all around you?
As far as east is from west beloved; that’s how far removed your transgressions are. (Psalm 103:12) There’s nothing to earn in regards to forgiveness, but much to learn about your gratitude for it. How do you live because of it? Receive the gift; His resurrection is your resurrection (Colossians 3:1). And if so, live as the new creation you are (2 Corinthians 5:17)!
The rooster crowed after Peter denied Yahshua three times (John 18:15-27). Later, Yahshua silenced the rooster by asking Peter, also three times, “Do you love me?” “Yes, Master, You know everything; You know that I love You,” Peter affirmed each time (John 21:15-17). Yahshua already knows everything; but you can demonstrate your love for Him by allowing Him to kill your crowing roosters. And after they are dead, don’t ever use His power in you to resurrect those “fowl” birds again.
Who’s Judging Who?
(#012 from Suffer Well Devotional Series©)
Oh My children, if you would only judge yourselves honestly as did Shaul (Paul), your contentions would not exist. I care very little if I am judged by you or by any human court; indeed, I do not even judge myself. My conscience is clear, but that does not make me innocent. It is the Master who judges me. (1 Corinthians 4:3-4) You see, he was not saying he did not judge himself, as evidenced by his very next words; “My conscience is clear.” He was simply stating that the outcome of his self-assessment left nothing to be judged. I call you to rightly judge yourself, or you will be judged by Me and others. “For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged.” (1 Corinthians 11:31)
If it becomes necessary that you be judge by others, it is the weak child who misrepresents a rebuke done in love. Have I not given you permission to tend to one another? What business is it of mine to judge those outside the congregation? Are you not to judge those inside? The Almighty will judge those outside. “Expel the wicked person from among you.” (1 Corinthians 5:12-13) Have I not allowed for the removal of one who calls himself a brother, yet disavows rebuke and good counsel? If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the congregation; and if they refuse to listen even to the congregation, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector. (Matthew 18:17) Such a man is to be removed from the presence of My body.
Yet, it remains important to differentiate between a rebuke done in love and fleshly judgment. A rebuke, My child, is always intended to be done in love, and is to benefit not only the one being rebuked, but the one bringing the rebuke, as well as the entire congregation. It is for Divine correction and all of My people need it. Fleshly judgment involves condemnation which is never from or inspired by Me (Romans 8:1).
Many of My sheep tend to call open rebukes, judgments. This is especially common from the one receiving the rebuke. I will not let you get away with it. A wise man heeds rebukes and it brings life to his soul. A fool scoffs at a proper rebuke, calling it judgment. (Read all of Proverbs 13) I will discipline such folly. Also, when you claim someone is judging you and they have not done so or intended to do so, it is a sin unto yourself. Take the rebuke My child; humility is My way. It is how I shall prosper you. The ear that listens to life-giving reproof will dwell among the wise. (Proverbs 15:31)
And finally, beware beloved, for if you judge someone else, you have no excuse for it. When you judge another person, you are judging yourself [saying you have already determined your conscience is clear- 1 Corinthians 4:4]. You do the same things you blame others for doing. We know that when the Almighty judges those who do evil things, he judges fairly. Though you are only a human being, you judge others. But you yourself do the same things. So how do you think you will escape when the Almighty judges you? (Romans 2:1-3)
