Walk the walk…
And don’t faint.
They shall WALK and not faint…
Psalm 81:13 “Oh, that My people would listen to Me,
That Israel would walk in My Ways!
If you WALK the walk of Torah you will not faint. WHY?
Samson found out WHY…
Samson went back on his vow to YHVH and found out what happens if you do not stay on the NARROW PATH of Torah (whatever YHVH commands).
Judges 16:20 And she said, “The Philistines are upon you, Samson!” So he awoke from his sleep, and said, “I will go out as before, at other times, and shake myself free!” But he did not know that YHVH had departed from him.
Samson woke up and was clueless just like billions of people who claim to be believers are clueless.
Samson broke The Word from YHVH when he gave away the secret of his vow and YHVH’s Spirit left Samson and Samson did not know it. Maybe he began to get a clue when they wrestled him to the ground and bound Samson and Samson was powerless to break his restraints? Maybe Samson got a clue when they put his eyes out? Maybe Samson got a clue when they attached him to the mill to grind grain like an ox?
We don’t know exactly where but somewhere along the way Samson repented and then purposed his life to die fulfilling Torah by sacrificing himself in serving YHVH in the killing of thousands of Philistines.
Somewhere along in his imprisonment, it finally dawned on Samson that the Holy Spirit of YHVH was no longer in him.
And Samson repented.
We’re not told Samson repented but it is OBVIOUS.
No one in this life makes it onto the headline page of Hebrews 11 chapter of Faith without repenting and being washed of their sins and returning to right relationship with YHVH and His Word.
No one can pass The Judgment is they reject keeping YHVH’s Sabbath and all His Word (Torah).
No one can be considered friends of YHVH and His Son is they do not keep YHVH’s Commandments. John 15:14
But, let’s digress back to Isaiah 40:31, shall we?
What about that other part of mounting up with WINGS LIKE EAGLES?
Yeah, what about that…?
Do you have any idea what is coming?
It is written in plain sight…
Revelation 12:14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.
This place is on the earth and that old serpent cannot go there… HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?
Backup to Revelation 12:6 where we see The Woman fled to The Wilderness:
Revelation 12:6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
The Greek word for fled is:
G5343 φεύγω pheugō fyoo’-go Apparently a primary verb; to run away (literally or figuratively); by implication to shun; by analogy to vanish: – escape, flee (away).
The Woman of Revelation 12 vanishes? Hmmm…
Now, you still have one finger on the Hebrews 11 page, check out verse 36
Hebrews 11:34 quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
See the word “escaped”? There is that G5343 run away vanishes word again.
Now let’s tie this altogether and visit Luke 21:
Luke 21:36 Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.
See the word “escape”?
It is very familiar:
G1628 ἐκφεύγω ekpheugō ek-fyoo’-go From G1537 and G5343; to flee out: – escape, flee.
Well, we sure do have some connections there, huh?
Now, take a close look at the Hebrew word alah translated as “mount up” in Isaiah 40:31
H5927 עָלָה ‛âlâh aw-law’ A primitive root; to ascend, intransitively (be high) or active (mount); used in a great variety of senses, primary and secondary, literally and figuratively: – arise (up). (cause to) ascend up, at once, break [the day] (up), bring (up), (cause to) burn, carry up, cast up, + shew, climb (up), (cause to, make to) come (up), cut off, dawn, depart, exalt, excel, fall, fetch up, get up, (make to) go (away, up), grow (over), increase, lay, leap, levy, lift (self) up, light, [make] up, X mention, mount up, offer, make to pay, + perfect, prefer, put (on), raise, recover, restore, (make to) rise (up), scale, set (up), shoot forth (up), (begin to) spring (up), stir up, take away (up), work.
Are you starting to feel a little LIFT of Eagles Wings?
So, let’s really peak your interest and go to Luke 17:
Luke 17:31-37 “In that day, he who is on the housetop, and his goods are in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back. 32 Remember Lot’s wife.33 Whoever seeks to save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it. 34 I tell you, in that night there will be two men in one bed: the one will be taken and the other will be left. 35 Two women will be grinding together: the one will be taken and the other left. 36 Two men will be in the field: the one will be taken and the other left.”
37 And they answered and said to Him, “Where, Master?”
So He said to them, “Wherever the body is, there the eagles will be gathered together.”
There are those eagles again, lifting The Woman to The Wilderness of Revelation 12 where The Body is located at the Second Exodus.
From the four corners of the earth, THE WOMAN of Revelation 12 is gathered to a physical location on the earth. She vanishes in an instant just like Philip, who the Ethiopian eunuch, coming up out of the water washed CLEAN, saw no more.
In the last few years, I have seen many, many visions of this great event, the Second Exodus to The Wilderness, of Revelation 12. I have seen everything and I know how it all works and I am pretty sure I know when it happens.
People might not believe me when I say it happens in a little under 19 months and that is okay if you find it hard to believe me.
But, don’t find this part hard cause it is the most important part…
The only people/believers who are found worthy to escape are those who keep The Sabbath of YHVH and all THE LAW of YHVH. They are the Righteous and Blameless just like those in Luke 1:5-6 who are righteous and blameless in all THE LAW of YHVH.
Those who live a set apart life geared only to obeying YHVH God the Father’s Commandments are The Woman, and they are the 5 Wise Virgins who always keep The Sabbath and all THE LAW. They live set apart lives and they do not let any pastor, theologian, priest, rabbi, or torah teacher cause them to break YHVH’s Commandments and disqualify them from the race, as Paul said.
The 5 unwise virgins, who fall short, maybe they cheat ever so slightly in keeping The Sabbath, maybe they don’t take seriously all the preparations to ensure The Sabbath is kept Holy or that their event they call a Holy Convocation is not indeed Holy, maybe they speak harsh words in anger and cause others to fall short of keeping Torah, maybe they reject The Sabbath completely, maybe they tend towards hiding this and that in business deals, maybe they watch sports events on Friday nights in America and Saturday daytime stuff and think YHVH will wink at what they do?
So much can happen to an unwise virgin who does not fill their lamp with pure Torah keeping (OIL) and seek with all their hearts, souls, minds, and strength to keep Torah (find YHVH)?
That IS what keeping Torah IS… finding and living in the NAME of YHVH. That IS what being IN MESSIAH IS…
