Should man test God? We know that we are not to tempt God…but what about testing Him? We know that Yeshua Jesus was tempted in the desert by Satan when he was consecrated to begin his ministry at age thirty over 40 days and 40 nights.
Today, Tammuz 13, 5779 is July 16, 2019. It is also holds a lunar partial eclipse for our world. Saros Series 139 will last 2 hours and 58 minutes. It will begin at 21:31:55. (about 9:30 pm CST). Saturn is sitting close by so perhaps you’ll see it better with the moon partially dark. This is eleven days after the July 2, 2019 Total Solar eclipse that announced the Rosh Chodesh of the Hebrew month Tammuz on July 3, 2019. Then on July 4, on America’s Independence Day, California was host to a large 6.4 earthquake followed two days later by a 7.1 earthquake.
Tammuz is already holding true to character…Total Solar (sun darkening), Partial Lunar eclipse (moon darkening), earthquakes to America as Korach study opens earth for three families (Korach, Datan, Avrim) to be removed and closes back up on them to be seen no more. Saturday, July 20, 2019 is The Worship of the Golden Calf date, Tammuz 17…but since the Sabbath is to only be a day of joy, the fast is moved to Sunday, July 21, 2019. It begins 21-days of repentance known as The Dire Straits. Let us mourn with those that mourn…so we can rejoice when they rejoice!
(This eclipse in 2019 is just 3 hours before our third grandson’s 19th birthday. A month before America’s Great Eclipse of August 21, 2017 he was 17 on July 17, 2017. It was called his, ‘golden birthday.’)
I sat down at my kitchen table next to my husband of whom was reading his Bible. My Bible was opened to the book of Malachi. I wanted to begin my day with Scripture as my husband was sitting there as a good example for me. (I had already violated the early morning study-first idea because I wanted to walk/run before the heat reached 90 degrees. I left at 80 degrees and it was now 90 degrees as I sat staring at the words of ‘testing’ God.
When I do exercise I find listening to Pastor Biltz from ElShaddai Ministries helps me chug up our hills and at times I even get to jog downhill with their worship music. Today, was very refreshing to hear his voice cover the study of ‘the giving’ of the Torah at Mt. Sinai which is celebrated at Shavuot also known by Christians as Pentecost.
When I ask my husband, “Are we suppose to test God?” he immediately replied, “to see that He is good?” It was the perfect answer as I read chapter three. And, then before he drove off to mow weeds in the 90 degree heat, I re-listened to a post I had put on yhebrew.com of a pastor who spoke about the California earthquakes…and he quoted Malachi 3:4. So, it is with great confirmation today that I write these thoughts to you.
In Malachi 3:10 Adonai asking to be put to the test. He says, “See if I don’t open for you the floodgates of heaven”…WOW I thought!….”and pour out for you a blessing far beyond your needs.”
This was amazing because I’ve always seen God answer my requests beyond what I could have even imagined. And, I tell others to pray big because we have a BIG God. He cares and wants the best for His children.
Is there a catch to this? I’m not a prosperity gospel person…do good and you’ll be blessed. I feel rich on this earth because it is He that allows those blessings. So what if someone is poor and in trials…does God not love them as well? Yes, and we must remember that our greatest blessings are spiritual because our goal must be on heavenly things.
So what is this test? Actually there are two types of people so there are two types of tests. Those children that are obedient to Torah test Adonai to the positive, and those that think it’s not for today test it to negative results. Adonai’s test is part of the ‘blessing and cursing’ theme that runs through our lives. And, it certainly starts with our belief in Yeshua as our Messiah that died on the cross for our sins. After that fact is real in our lives, we then move to how to live as He lived…bringing glory to God our Father.
Let’s read more of Malachi 3. Adonai is speaking to his children Israel who are related to their forefather, Yacov (Jacob). It is because of Ya’cov that Adonai will not completely remove them. Adonai is a ‘promise keeper’ and he will not go back on His word even through, “Since the days of your forefathers you have turned from my laws and have not kept them.” Malachi 3:7a.
Chapter 2 closes with God being wearied. “How have we wearied him?”
“By saying that anyone who does wrong is good from Adonai’s perspective.”
“And that he is delighted with them.” WOW!~ It is one thing to say that ‘evil’ is ‘good’, but it is another thing to say that Adonai is in agreement with evil.
Judgment falls when we don’t act responsibly in caring for ‘TRUTH.’
Look at the very last words of Chapter 2; “or by asking, “Where is the God of justice?”
The utube videos that I’ve shared in the last two days are about the California earthquake swarms. One pastor goes through the FOUR abominations of California. He painstakingly goes through her sins beginning with Hollywood and how she has poisoned our world and our children. He discusses Silicon Valley and how it controls the media and now our 2020 elections. The California State Legislature is horrific in passing laws that some laws can’t even realistically be obeyed. The Torah has 613 instructions that have existed since the days of Mosch that are elegant coming against sin. California Courts have implemented 17,851 laws since 2011 that began Jerry Brown’s rule.
This incredible utube video by Steve Cioccolanti on Discover ministries must be seen by all. (I just posted it here.) A prophetic warning continues to be given by pastors. Judgement is falling for California and Ontario. I agree that something unusual is going to happen. Steve continued to look at the Book of Amos for judgment because of many sins that can NOT be hidden under the earth’s rug. These laws hurt the innocent….with a child being able to be taken from their parents if they are not allowed to be changed to transgender. And, a law that says that once you changed to your choice of gender, you are never allowed to change back.
Human beings minds are being manipulated with their constitutional rights of freedom being striped from them. “Where is the God of justice?”
When a messenger comes to the earth…they (angels) produce earthquakes. Note the location of this earthquake.
Malachi 3:1 “Look! I am sending my messenger to clear the way before me; and the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to his temple. Yes, the messenger of the covenant, in whom you take such delight – look! Here he comes,” says ADONAI-TZVA’OT.
Just as there were messengers (angels) on the earth when Yeshua died…they caused the earth to shake splitting the veil of, The Temple. Just as angels came to earth to give witness to Yeshua Jesus’ resurrection, the earth shook. Just as some apostles were in jail and the angel appeared, the earth shook and their chains dropped off.
So who is this messenger that will shake the earth’s foundations? It is He that wants to be put to the test? God wants to prove that He can take care of us…
“For your sakes I will forbid the devourer to destroy the yield from your soil; and your vine will not lose its fruit before harvest-time.” “All nations will call you happy, for you will be a land of delights,” says ADONAI-Tzva’ot.
Israel is on the earth once again after 4000 years. Adonai established Israsel on her same land in 1948. She is 71 years on her soil and still being contested for it by the nations around her. It is President Donald Trump that has tried to help her be called ‘Happy’ and a ‘land of delights.’ If we join ourselves to her, we also receive her blessings. If we join in her testings…we too will see the results of those positive testings.
When Israel rebuilds The Temple, there will be priests to support via tithing. Read Malachi 3 to see what God says about that tithing. This tithing became a negative to the people as they left their ‘testing’ of God’s love. What was meant for good turned to bad. Without the correct ‘tithe’ the priests could not live as they were not to own any land. Their lives were dependent on people bringing their ‘first fruits’ to The Temple. Just a we are dependent on Yeshua being the ‘first fruit’ resurrecting from the earth. The pattern continues so we will always remember our salvation is Yeshua Jesus.
Thus, Adonai allowed that temple to be burned down….the fire was so hot that it’s gold melted off and the Roman soldiers collected it for their unpaid wages.
This Saturday, July 20, 2019 it is 17 Tammaz. Our world is visiting the world of ‘The Golden Calf’. We studied this lesson just a few weeks ago and so our world should be familiar with it’s life lessons.
Gold was melted down and put in the water for the people to drink…and 3000 died in that plague. The year Yeshua died, was buried and rose up was also the same time that the Ruach HaChodesh (Holy Spirit) came to the earth with 3000 receiving the gift of speaking so others could hear them in their own language. These disciples would be the true ‘nuggests of gold’ for bringing Yeshua and Torah to the Nations.
Today, gold is desired to be the standard for money. It runs deep the minds of men. It has become a god to many.
When we have earthquakes, gas lines may break and chemical fires can roar. Forests burn out-of-control with trees go up in flames. Men are known as trees on the earth either standing by streams of water flourishing or burning up because their lives are considered as chaff.
God’s children are to test God to see that He is good. We are to live by His instructions to prove that His ways work. I do test the LORD and can only say that it is in this ‘testing’ that I know I’m His. Our lives and property are always being blessed into eternity as all of our children also walk out the ways of Adonai. And, we see our Creator’s hand on the cattle He has given us to care for.
Men that lead others into their ‘own understanding’ will be held accountable. We are not to suffer the little children (the lost) from coming unto him.
Today, the people of our world try God by acting out their own ways of righteousness. They create their own rules…intentionally violating the Judea Christian values that have always followed the statues given at Mt. Sinai. Today’s Christian feels persecuted for their stand for righteousness.
Amos is written at 800 BC. He is giving warnings two years before the earthquake. We certainly had a warning in America two years ago August 21 2017. Solar eclipse saros series 145 crossed seven cities named Salem (peace) removing their peace. The United States was marked from the Northwest coast to the southeast coast in a diagonal. That next year in Missouri there was a drought that gave those in that eclipse path one cutting of hay. It is not until now in 2019 that the first cutting of hay gave way to a normal price for a bale of hay. Animals were sold at auction at half of their value…just because the local farmer was out of hay. We are actual testimonies of living under that eclipse of 2017 giving witness to that judgment on the land of America. Others lived under the hurricane judgments that year.
Zechariah is written at 550 BC and speaks of shaking. Many OT and NT verses speak of ‘getting out’. Lot was told to ‘get out’ and yet his sons-in-law thought he was joking. Abraham was told to ‘get out’ and he wasn’t even told where to move to…but he arrived at his uncle’s homeland.
The Book of Revelations by Yeshua Jesus speaks of great shaking…as do the writers of the gospels. When we look at the Book of Acts which is New Testament, we see four scriptures that speak of, ‘Get Out’.
Acts 22:17-18 Paul is told to leave Jerusalem as he was going to be killed if he didn’t leave.
Have we learned that Christians are to ‘test’ God? Yes! They are to obey His ways to test to see if God is keeping them safe. Once we live under His instruction, we do feel protected and loved. In the Book of Revelations which is considered future, what do we see? We are told to ‘get out’ but in a different sense.
Revelations 18:2-3 ….”Bavel the Great has fallen.” It says that “all the nations have drunk from the wine of God’s fury caused by her whoring — the kings of the earth went whoring with her, and from her unrestrained love of luxury the world’s businessmen have grown rich.”
We have become unrestrained in our love of this world. We have become undone as a people and now we are told to, “My people, come out of her! so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not be infected by her plagues,,,,,(the plague of eating gold begins this Sabbath, July 20 which is Tammuz 17…the day they were found out for their worship of a god to lead them other than The Creator of whom saved them from Egypt (the world).
Rev 18:7 “Give her as much torment and sorrow as the glory and luxury she gave herself! For in her heart she says, “I sit a queen – I am not a widow, I will never see sorrow.’
California and Ontario think they will never see sorrow. And yet, on the Sabbath where Korach and his followers homes are swallowed up as the earth opens up and closes on them, California witnessed an 7.1 earthquake preceded by over a thousand smaller ones just days before. And now this coming Sabbath is Tammuz 17 where judgment came because they did not consider The Words of God important…The Torah…Mosche…Yeshua…as meaning the same. The Word came in the flesh…and that flesh was God. God in the flesh…and yet many Christians say that Yeshua Jesus was a ‘son of God’ just as Adam was a ‘son of god’. Why even the demons knew who Yeshua Jesus was and shuttered…. and yet many sects of religion deny Yeshua is God.
It’s God’s own children that will be judged first. If they can’t get it right, then the world isn’t going to get it right and they will fail their ‘test’ of God.
Do people still get double shots of flavors at Starbucks? They hold the goddess ‘Astarte’ in their hands. Ba’al worship still exists in our world and yet no one wants to ‘believe’ it. It’s just a ‘joke’ to them…as with Lot’s son-in-laws.
Revelation 18:6 “Render to her as she rendered to others! Pay her back double for what she has done! Use the cup in which she has brewed to brew her a double-sized drink!
