Biblical Reasons For Fasting
Women Should Be Thankful For This Message And The Double Standard Of Modesty. Think About it.
Art Mathias from Wellspring ministres in Alaska talks about spiritual warfare and how it relates to Covid-19. This video is part of a longer interview I did with Art Mathias.
Here is an interview with James and Lea from Philia Ministries.
I really enjoy their videos and think everyone should see them.

Father (Yahweh, the great I AM); Mother (Ama, Spirit, Help Meet); Son (Yahshua, “Yahweh saves”); and Daughter (the Bride, the called out chosen), yes, this is the family order. Certainly, it is My most precious concept. May I share My plan for the family with you? I wish to reveal My purpose for such a concept.
Yes, I am He who reveals things in many deep layers. Has not My Son said, “On earth as it is in heaven?” (Matthew 9:9-15) The earthly family should be a mirror image of My Kingdom family. It must have proper order instituted. Authority should be understood in its right context. Your family (as the Spiritual family does) should display perfect unity of thought and action. Joy, as well as all facets of love, should be demonstrated in service to one another and on display in every decision and action. (1 Corinthians 13)
Add this understanding of family to all other things which are expected of you in the earthly realm: pro-creation (a fruitful multiplying); exhorting and building up future generations (who will bring Me glory); enduring together in times of testing; and standing against foreign principalities in unity (which will prove My power). And what of My body, My called out chosen, preparing herself as a bride adorned for her husband (Revelation 21:2)? She must be: unified; holy; and respectful of each member. Your role is to find your purpose as part of the body, your created purpose, as you actively plan for the wedding supper of the Lamb (Revelation 19:6-9).
I have commanded that your family be modeled after the heavenly pattern, so do not be dismayed by the attacks against the family and marriage. It only reveals the value I place on them. It is an indicator of how much I protect such things; and yes, that means I Am on your side in reference to family matters.
Hasatan (Satan, ego) knows we will be united, yet, he still believes he can change My plan. He has waged an all-out war against you. But, I laugh at his folly (Psalm 37:12-13). Be on guard! Do not fall for the tricks and traps he lays for you! I will give you wisdom about his ways if you so desire to seek. I Am a protector; you have the same obligation. Have I not said, “The two will become one flesh; and let no man separate?” (Ephesians 5:31 from Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:6) Yes, I Am very pro-family. I understand what it takes. Be diligent. Be wise. Love your family, and resist the temptations of the evil one.
I am no longer a slave to sin. I am a child of God. HIs Blood has saved me. The life is in the blood. Are we following Yahweh by choice? How important is free will? We discuss all that in this video.
Never a Robot!

For we know that the Law is spiritual; but I am carnal, sold as a slave to sin. (Romans 7:14)
A quaint conversation joined midway through:
Church folk 1: Well, I do have free will. I can make my own decisions, like choosing Jesus.
Church folk 2: Hmm. The bible says, “I [He] chose you.” (John 15:16)
Church folk 1: Yes, but that’s because He knew I would choose Him.
Church folk 2: Where does it say that in the bible?
Church folk 1: Well, I’ll have to look it up, or ask my pastor.
Church folk 2: I am positive it does not say that in the bible, or anything like that. As a matter of fact, it says you were chosen before the foundations of the world (Psalm 90:2), even in your mother’s womb He was your Mighty One (Psalm 22:10). So, are you saying He predestined all of this based upon what you would do?
Church folk 1: Yes right, that is what I’m saying. Well, I think that’s what I’m saying.
Church folk 2: The bible says that the carnal man is at enmity [hostile] towards Him and will not subject himself to Yahweh (Romans 8:7). It also says that we all sin and fall short of His glory (Romans 3:23). So, how did you get holy enough, you know, get over your carnality, long enough to choose Him?
Church folk 1: Well, I did ask Him into my heart. I remember the day like it was yesterday.
Church folk 2: I believe you. I am curious however; was that before or after He gave you a new heart (Deuteronomy 30:6)?
Church folk 1: Well, I guess after.
Church folk 2: So then, did you ask for the new heart before He chose you, or was your new heart His gift to you before there was anything in you good enough to seek Him (Romans 3:10-18)?
Church folk 1: Now that you put it that way, I guess it was His doing.
Church folk 2: So then, what you are really saying is that the new heart He gave you (Ezekiel 36:26) is what prompted your choice to believe, to “ask Him into your heart,” right?
Church folk 1: Well, I guess so, but I’m not a robot you know.
Church folk 2: No, you’re not a robot, just a slave.
“Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or slaves to obedience, which leads to righteousness?” (Romans 6:16)
As we get by in life we have to understand one of the greatest blessings our Creator gives is Shalom, peace. We need to ask him to Take Us There

please take me there.
Take Me There
(#005 from Suffer Well Devotional Series©)
Father, please take me there.
Will I always just be hanging on Father, like a man gritting his teeth, waiting for a final decision? If I am victorious in Yahshua the Messiah, why do I feel as if I am falling? My only hope is that You will be there to catch me. If You left Your peace with me (John 14:27), then why am I still searching for it? Abba, what is this peace that surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:7)?
I have given my will over to You and continuously press hard to never take it back. I desire only Your presence in the broken places. Father, will I always have to fight like this? Your promise is clear; “Rest in Yahweh, and wait patiently for Him; do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.” (Psalm 37:7) Why, then, do I struggle to find this rest? How can I claim the victory before the battle has begun? Let me hear Your voice; “Go, for I have given them into your hands?” (Joshua 10:8)
Even as the death of everything I have ever known stares me in the face, may I see what You see for me? I surrender all to You, even the unwilling parts. Take them anyway. I need Your peace and joy instead Father. May I move past constantly crying out for peace into the peace itself? You tell me it’s mine, please show me how to turn the key and walk through the doorway into peace. As I acknowledge my depravity, let the Spiritual abundance come! If I must fall, let me fall into the arms of the author and perfector of my faith (Hebrews 12:2).
O my Mighty One, my soul is cast down within me;
Therefore I will remember You from the land of the Jordan,
And from the heights of Hermon,
From the Hill Mizar.
Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls;
All Your waves and billows have gone over me.
Yahweh will command His lovingkindness in the daytime,
And in the night His song shall be with me—
A prayer to the Mighty One of my life.
Father, please take me there.
