My Thoughts on The Meaning of “Being Planted on Solid Ground”
Ok, So as I was doing my studies, And Yahuah Brought this to my attention..... I was shown Tehillim (Psalms 1:1-6)...and right away I thought of the Scroll of MatiYahu/Matthew...so I read Tehillim/Psalms...and then I read MatiYahu/Matthew 13:1-9..and was shown this Gem. if you will let me explain.
Here we go Ok, So let's start with Tehillim/Psalms 1:1-6
The Way of the Righteous and the Wicked,
Psa 1:1 Blessed is the man who shall not walk in the counsel of the wrong, And shall not stand in the path of sinners, And shall not sit in the seat of scoffers,
Psa 1:2 But his delight is in the Torah of Yahuah, And he meditates in His Torah day and night.
Psa 1:3 For he shall be as a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That yields its fruit in its season, And whose leaf does not wither, And whatever he does prospers.
Psa 1:4 The wrong are not so, But are like the chaff which the wind blows away.
Psa 1:5 Therefore the wrong shall not rise in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
Psa 1:6 For Yahuah, knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the wrong comes to naught. ...
Now the first thing I noticed was the very first verse, it hit me like I had just walked into a brick wall, we living into today's world, this is how we should walk.....but the most important thing that stuck out to me was "And shall not stand in the path of sinners".....so many people today want to take what the Messiah said to us and like go over board totally ignoring Scripture of the Prophets of old,...and today want to tell people they meet on the street, in the park, at the store, ect.. about the (Good News)..and that 's great, that is exactly what we should be doing, but their is a proper way to do this, and an improper way to do this!... and in today's age we (Believers in Messiah) Torah Obedient followers of The Way...."The Chosen" or Awakened,..need to really be on guard, be aware just as Scripture says we are "Sheep sent out amongts the wolfs"!!
Mat 10:16 “See, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.
And trust me thier is good reason for this, also when you find the true meaning of this verse and understand it, and in which I hope this lesson helps you to do just that... So anyway getting back in subject... Most people today stop and want to boast about what they learned and witness to others, and again that's great, that's what we are to do, but we also need to follow Scripture, many start off and they just continue in the man made lie of "Religion" with the false names...as so to not come on to strong, me personally I don't think we should do that, I believe we need to be straight up forward and honest from the start, and explain to them first and foremost that they have not only been taught wrong, but have been fed lies from the enemy from the start, and see where this takes you, see if they are accepting of this, or hard hearted and stiff necked!!!, this gives you a (Starting point).....interested?......not interested?, this is where I was explaining up above about many need to understand the proper way and improper way of witnessing the truth to others, Scripture says that yes we are to spread the Gospel....
Mat 28:19 “Therefore, go and make taught ones of all the nations, immersing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Set-apart Spirit,
Mat 28:20 teaching them to guard all that I have commanded you. And see, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” Amien.
You can cross reference this with
Isa 8:8 “And he shall pass through Yehudah, he shall overflow and pass over, reaching up to the neck. And the stretching out of his wings shall fill the breadth of Your land, O Immanu’el.
Isa 8:9 “Be shattered, O you peoples, and be broken in pieces! Give ear, all you from the far places of the earth. Gird yourselves, but be broken in pieces; gird yourselves, but be broken in pieces.
Isa 8:10 “Take counsel, and it comes to naught; speak a word, and it does not stand, for El is with us.”
Deu 12:32 “All the words I am commanding you, guard to do it – do not add to it nor take away from it.
Deu 5:32 “And you shall guard to do as Yahuah your Elohim has commanded you – do not turn aside, to the right or to the left.
So now posting that, and in spreading the good news the right way and the wrong way is upon them accepting the Names and hearing the message, we tell them all about the Truth according to what the Father has told us and that we have learned (With out any of the paganism) just His Truth...if they continue to accept that's great, but remember do not give them so much to where it over loads them, or is to much for them to comprehend. Feed them small amounts starting with the Names and having them sit down and read Scripture with you, or talking with you, and seeing just one point of the many lies is enough. Just make sure you do it in a way that Esteems the Father....Like after they accept the Names and you go through how they hid them, than maybe start with the lie where they tell you the law was nailed to the (Pagan Cross). Also explain it was a stake/Tree, or how the RCC (Roman Catholic Church ) Changed the 10 Commandments, or anyone of the lies that are out there, but don't make it a history lesson to where you lose their attention. Feed them a Minuet amount and then leave off there, let them ponder it, and get curious,..if their heart and mind are in the right place Yahuah will take over, they will research and contact you for more Truth, this is where many go wrong, they feel at this point, oh man. I got this, I won this Guy/Girl almost feeling as if (They) "Saved" this person, or lead them to be saved, and thus this is where the enemy sneaks in, and pride,or that feeling of over excitement creeps in, but Scripture says in Ezekiel
Eze 3:17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Yisra’el. And you shall hear a word from My mouth, and shall warn them from Me.
Eze 3:18 “When I say to the wrong, ‘You shall certainly die,’ and you have not warned him, nor spoken to warn the wrong from his wrong way, to save his life, that same wrong man shall die in his crookedness, and his blood I require at your hand.
Eze 3:19 “But if you have warned the wrong and he does not turn from his wrong, nor from his wrong way, he shall die in his crookedness, and you have delivered your being.
Eze 3:20 “And when a righteous one turns from his righteousness and shall do unrighteousness, when I have put a stumbling-block before him, he shall die. Because you did not warn him, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done is not remembered, and his blood I require at your hand.
Eze 3:21 “But if you have warned the righteous one that the righteous should not sin, and he did not sin, he shall certainly live because he has been warned, and you have delivered your being.”
So you see that is all we are to do, warn the Wicked and spread His Word to those accepting of the Truth of His Word, those that are not, or that come against you, have made their own fate and their blood is off your hands. OK, now with that, this is how we do not stand in the way of sinners as the verse in Psalms 1:1 is speaking of, nor do we sit in the seat of scoffers....meaning (Make fun of those that choose to shut their eyes and hearts to the Truth, or anyone for that fact, we have to remember we were there once as well, (we were in the captivity of Babylon) per se
Eph 5:8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Master. Walk as children of light
The very first part of the verse...Blessed is the man who shall not walk in the counsel of the wrong, meaning we do not listen to the words of those that are doing wrong, we are not to walk with them talk to them, or be in the presence of them, and their is Scripture for this:
2 Co 6:14 Do not become unevenly yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness and lawlessness? And what fellowship has light with darkness?
2 Co 6:15 And what agreement has Messiah with Beliya'al, Or what part does a believer have with an unbeliever?
2 Co 6:16 And what union has the Dwelling Place of Elohim with idols? For you are a Dwelling Place of the living Elohim, as Elohim has said, “I shall dwell in them and walk among them, and I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be My people
Yes I know, it hurts, to have to walk away from those you love, simply because they are not willing to give up on the things of this world, but it ultimately comes down to what is more important, your Love and Obedience to Yahuah, or your family and friends? I am not saying you can't talk to them, or stop and say hi if you see them, what I am saying is, do not hang around them, go to dinners with them, and spend much time with them, but the time you do spend with them use that time to witness to them, they will either listen and learn, or they will get up and walk away, thinking as many of my family has that I am in an occult, simply because the Love of the Father and His Light is not in them, you know many people get Scripture wrong, and twist it, and it really is a shame. Their is a difference between those that are your brothers and sisters, and those that are your neighbors, and those that are just plain out living in the world, blinded by the enemy, and the children of the father of lies... i will do a later study lesson on that... but lets first get back to this gem that was shown to me today...let's move on to after reading Psalms 1:1-3 in verse 3 it states ( For he shall be as a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That yields its fruit in its season, And whose leaf does not wither, And whatever he does prosper ....I started to think hmmm, that reminds me of Matthew chapter 13
The Parable of the Sower
Mat 13:1 And on that day Yahusha, went out of the house and sat by the sea.
Mat 13:2 And large crowds were gathered together to Him, so that He went into a boat and sat down. And all the crowd stood on the beach.
Mat 13:3 And He spoke to them much in parables, saying, “See, the sower went out to sow.
Mat 13:4 “And as he sowed, some indeed fell by the wayside, and the birds came and devoured them.
Mat 13:5 “And others fell on rocky places, where they did not have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, because they had no depth of soil.
Mat 13:6 “But when the sun was up they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered.
Mat 13:7 “And others fell among thorns, and the thorns came up and choked them.
Mat 13:8 “And others fell on good soil and yielded a crop, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
Mat 13:9 “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
So after reading this, and re-reading this, it then was made known to me, in today's time,"WE" are the sowers, we are sowing good seed..professing the truth of His Word, to those that have been fed lies their whole life, bringing them back to the Father...showing them The Way, through The Way "Yahusha" showed us by living Torah, Obedient to the Fathers Words,...who is Yahusha,...who is the Torah,... By showing them That we are to Keep the 10 Commandments, and that we are to rest on his 7th day Sabbath, because it is a Sign to Us, through our Obedience to His Torah, that we are his children.
Exo 31:12 And Yahuah spoke to Mosheh, saying,
Exo 31:13 “And you, speak to the children of Yisra’el, saying, ‘My Sabbaths you are to guard, by all means, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, to know that I, Yahuah, am setting you apart.
showing them that we are set apart we are his children his true children the scattered Yishra'el....Jew or Gentile...oh I am just feeling the Ruach Amein...Have you taken notice to the last part of the verse there in Exodus 31:13?....( for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, to know that I, Yahuah, am setting you apart.!!!!) I must put an emphasis on this, "throughout your generations" so by showing them that, what else makes us Set Apart from the world is we keep His Set Apart Mo'ed/Feast days...Appointed Times, that we (Israel are to meet with Him and esteem Him and study and Praise His Word..Amien... These are what sets us apart in His Love, and earns us favor with him through our obedience to His Words, not being saved by some cross by grace....that is not, nor was it ever His plan, if that was His plan, He would have said so in His Word...(The Tanok)...instead what does His Word tell us?
Pro 7:1 My son, guard my words, And treasure up my commands with you.
Pro 7:2 Guard my commands and live, And my Torah as the apple of your eye.
Pro 7:3 Bind them on your fingers; Write them on the tablet
(YaHUaH Speaking to Av'raham)
Gen 26:4 “And I shall increase your seed like the stars of the heavens, and I shall give all these lands to your seed. And in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed,
Gen 26:5 because Av'raham obeyed My voice and guarded My Charge: My commands, My laws, and My Torah.
Deu 11:1 “And you shall love Yahuah your Elohim and guard His charge: even His laws, and His right-rulings, and His commands, always
Notice how the last part of that verse in Deuteronomy say's "ALWAYS"
And last but not least:
Deu 11:26 See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse:
Deu 11:27 the blessing, when you obey the commands of Yahuah your Elohim which I command you today;
Deu 11:28 and the curse, if you do not obey the commands of Yahuah your Elohim, but turn aside from the way which I command you today, to go after other mighty ones which you have not known.
Mal 3:6 “For I am Yahuah, I shall not change, and you, O sons of Ya'aqob, shall not come to an end.
So you see, the churches today are teaching people a strange doctrine, A doctrine that the law has been nailed to this pagan Cross, and that the ten Commandments don't apply, that doing what the Father says is legalistic bondage, that if you read your bible to start in Ma'aseh/Acts,..Paul's writings, one who's writings are very hard to understand, that's because they know if you are not familiar with the Tanok/Old Testement, you wouldn't understand Paul's writings,...and will remain blind to their herisy, but you see the truth is in this study, you will get all truth and hopefully look into and research all that is presented here today. Let's move on, let's look at Tehillim 1:4 next (Psa 1:4 The wrong are not so, But are like the chaff which the wind blows away. ....and why are the wrong like chaff that is blown away well let's look at MattiYahu/Matthew again shall we (Mat 13:5 “And others fell on rocky places, where they did not have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, because they had no depth of soil.
Mat 13:6 “But when the sun was up they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered.
Mat 13:7 “And others fell among thorns, and the thorns came up and choked them. )....take a look at verse 16,...this is why many fall away, remain lost, (Eph 4:14 so that we should no longer be children, tossed and borne about by every wind of teaching, by the trickery of men, in cleverness, unto the craftiness of leading astray),.. because they have no "ROOT" or Solid Foundation, (and because they had no root they withered) it says at the end of verse 16! .. you see, that's what Yahuah's Torah is, it is the foundation Stone to what we are to do, how we are to act, what we are to live by, Yahusha Messiah was The Word made flesh, many people like to take this out of context, so here let me put it in context for you, Yahuah's Word is every Word he spoke to Moses.....(Torah), now I know, before you get all upset I am not saying that the kete'vim,and na'bi are not His Words, they are of His Words, basically, they were given to the Prophets of old from Yahuah through visions, or angels, or dreams, right now I am speaking of His actual Voice/Words, you see in the churches today, you are not given stable ground, a footing, a foundation, they don't regard it as necessary, (Why?) because it doesn't fit their agenda, it doesn't allow you to remain blind and programmed, if you will....first you will notice things like tithing was food, what brother mike?......yep tithing was the first fruits of their crops appointed to Yahuah..not money, silver, gold, ect. Today the churches make you think that, or you might find out the truth that eating pork, and other things are no good for you, that He commands you to meet with Him on certain Appointed Feast days, and not these pagan holidays.... you might come to realize that the church are not his children, what pastor mike?..what do you mean, now you've gone to far!!!...just wait a minute my friend, listen to what I have to say, this is Scripture, and I tell you this out of love... let's look who are His People?.....
Isa 52:6 “Therefore My people shall know My Name, in that day, for I am the One who is speaking. See, it is I.” you see the church they call him Gimel Dalet = גד
Let me ask you,..is God a name?......no God is a title, not a name, and their are many different God's, Thor, Hercules, Amen Ra, Zeus, Promitheis, Pan, Osiris, Horus, and Ba'al, the last one is the one controling everything in this world, sorry to say even the churches..... (Gimel Dalet ) when you take a closer look, it actually means a deity of fortune, money, what are the churches today....pay your tithe.... that's right, they are all about the money, and no different then the prosperity preachers, traveling the world, only difference is they have a home church for the town you are in, or some are located on YouTube, no difference... you see the truth is, many rely on man to preach and teach them, this is what has been taught to you, and your mother and father and their mother and father and so on and so on..but the truth is, we (Yahuah's People ) are to allow the Ruach Haqodesh/Holy Spirit) teach us, that's Scripture my friend, (Joh 14:26 “But the Helper, the Set-apart Spirit, whom the Father shall send in My Name, He shall teach you all, and remind you of all that I said to you.) ...the Tanok/Old Testament Verifies this (Isa 54:13 and all your children taught by Yahuah, and the peace of your children great.)...and when we ask the father to let the Ruach teach us, and not man, what happens?..Scripture say this (Psa 25:12 Who, then, is the man that fears Yahuah? He teaches him in the way he should choose.
Psa 25:13 His life dwells in good, And his seed inherits the earth.
Psa 25:14 The secret of Yahuah is with those who fear Him, And He makes His covenant known to them.
You see this is why many in the church are still asleep and blinded, chaff if you will, that blows away with the wind....those with no foundation,...they have no root,..they have no Torah, and the church leaders and pastors, preachers, rabbi, teachers know this, and use it to their advantage.. Scripture says this would happen ....
Jer 23:11 “For both prophet and priest have become defiled. Even in My house I have found their evil,” declares Yahuah....it tells you also that scripture has been changed ....
Jer 8:8 “How do you say, ‘We are wise, and the Torah of Yahuah is with us’? But look, the false pen of the scribe has worked falsehood. ... so how do we know the truth?....well, because when one researches, they find the truth, the Ruach shows them the truth, He "leads you" and the more you study, the more you learn, you come to Him as a child, and start with the milk, as you go and you grow, you get the meat..the Torah has been changed!... I am lost brother mike?...let me explain, in the law their are oral laws and their were Talmudic laws, the Jewish scribes tried to convince many that some of the Jewish Talmudic laws were from the father, the ones we need to concern ourselves with are the 10 Commandments, the Keeping of Sabbath, and the Feast days, what to eat and what not to eat as per Torah, you see Yahusha came speaking against their Talmudic laws, and that is what angered them... many of us realize that when Messiah was crucified, the law of sacrifice for sins and offerings was all that was finished, as He was our final Atonement for sin, our very last sacrifice, that allows us to be remarried back into the "Original Covenant/Marriage Contract" that our ancestors (Didn't want to keep),..you see many say they couldn't keep it,...that is false, and that is only because like our ancestors, they don't want to keep it ...hindering their chances at salvation....it can be kept, and it is commanded of his people to keep it, there is many scripture of this:
Exo 31:16 ‘And the children of Yisra’el shall guard the Sabbath, to perform the Sabbath throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant. .. an everlasting covenant...key word...
Exo 31:12 And Yahuah spoke to Mosheh, saying,
Exo 31:13 “And you, speak to the children of Yisra’el, saying, ‘My Sabbaths you are to guard, by all means, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, to know that I, Yahuah, am setting you apart..... so you see the church is teaching you wrong and by now you should be very upset.....but let Yahuah have it concentrate on your new relationship with the father (For those just now waking up)... let's move on we are almost done Tehillim/Psalms 1:5...
(Psa 1:5 Therefore the wrong shall not rise in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.) Last but not least, this is a good one, considering many think they will make it to "Heaven"..but see even that is not true,..the church teaches, you will be raptured, some preach a "pre trib rapture",.. but the truth is, no, now don't get me wrong, there will be a calling away, where we will meet with Him, but it is not like the church preaches,...sorry to inform you of this, you see, this is where the "Wheat and the tares" parable comes in, but that is for another time,.. Let's just show you the proof points, if you will, you see it like this, the enemy has came and sowed tares in with the wheat..famous parable, meaning many false teachers and lawless living Christians, Catholics, and other denominations have been mixed in with "Israel", and this is where the 2 house subject would come in, but, as the parable of the Wheat and Tares are for another day, so also is the 2 house. Let's just say you have 2 houses = 12 tribes, 14 all together with Ephraim and manashah,.....you have Yahudah & Yisra'el/Judah & Israel, 2 houses within them houses are all 14 tribes, "Yahuah's people".... OK so back to the wheat and tares (Mat 13:25 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed Darnell among the wheat and went away. Footnote: Darnell looks like wheat but is poisonous to man and beast.) ok now the rapture/calling up, the reason Psalms/Tehillim states the wrong will not rise in judgement, nor sinners to the congregation of the righteous is because they wont be inside the kingdom at the supper table with his people that kept the covenant.. all those that refused the Father and Son, all those that are doing evil, living for them self, and are of the enemy....they are the tares, and if the parable of the wheat and tares are read in context, and correctly, you see that the "Tares" are taken first, same as when the farmers reap their wheat, they bring up the tares first, after it has grown up, separating it from the wheat...leaving what is good.......
Mat 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I shall say to the reapers, “First gather the darnel and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my granary.” ’ ” ..see it says first gather the Darnell/lawless the ones not of Yahuah the ones still living in the world and of themselves....
Mat 13:37 And He answering, said to them, “He who is sowing the good seed is the Son of A'dom,
Mat 13:38 and the field is the world. And the good seed, these are the sons of the reign, but the Darnell are the sons of the wicked one,
Mat 13:39 and the enemy who sowed them is the devil. And the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the messengers.
Mat 13:40 “As the Darnell, then, is gathered and burned in the fire, so it shall be at the end of this age.
Mat 13:41 “The Son of A'dom shall send out His messengers, and they shall gather out of His reign all the stumbling-blocks, and those doing lawlessness
Mat 13:42 and shall throw them into the furnace of fire – there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
(Stumbling blocks are the ones preaching this lawless christian and other strange doctrine)
see the moral of this is to show that we are the ones sowing good seed, the ones bringing people back to the Father and his ways... now, many will scoff at you, and many will tell you that you are going back under bondage, and the church will shun you, you will lose family, and many friends, but don't give up, pray and seek guidance form the Father, there is much more I could put to this, but I will give it a break for now, and if after people read this, and like it I will do more, as Yahuah has shown me many gems per se... but this gem is be a sower of the Truth of His Word, break the cycle of lies told through the churches and the devils children...
remember Scripture brothers and sisters:
Mat 5:18 “For truly, I say to you, till the heaven and the earth pass away, one yod or one tittle shall by no means pass from the Torah till all be done...heaven and earth have not past away ..have they? the last part of this is
Mat 5:19 “Whoever, then, breaks one of the least of these commands, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the reign of the heavens; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens.
Mat 13:9 “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
Don't lose hope brothers & sisters there are 4 harvests (Fruit,Grain,Olive,Fish)
