Have you turned on the tv or logged onto social media and seen a man or woman confessing to be a prophet or apostle sent from the MOST HIGH ELOHIYM to preach to the masses? They will compare themselves to Iyov (Job) that continued to be steadfast in his faith and love for YAHUAH'El even though he was stricken with tragedy and disease. No one can say a person is or isn't called to the ministry because every soul has an opportunity to find redemption. As students under the guidance and ministry of YAHUSHA HA'MASHIACH, we must conduct daily examinations of the TORAH and CEPHER, to show ourselves obedient to commandments of love, endurance, insight and truth. YAHUAH'EL knows every son and daughter by name and always ordains sons and daughters from A'dam as prophets, judges, priests, kings and warriors. Most of these individuals were not Qodeshiym (Saints) but displayed characteristics that were violent, lustful, greedy, idolaters and murderers. The precepts also warned us about the Watchers of antiquity that came to earth and misled mankind and how workers of iniquity played a role in YAHUSHA HA'MASHIACH trial and execution. These workers of iniquity were tested like KEPHA (Peter) that was tested for courage and truth. YOCHANON (John) 13:37,38. CEPHER. Unlike Peter who renounced YAHUSHA HA'MASHIACH because of fear, these enemies of YAHUAH sovereignty both of flesh and spirit align themselves with Satan for personal gain. Since the creation of mankind, Satan has attacked the offspring of A'dam and Chuah (Eve) with all the tools at his disposal. Who was in Cain ear when he murdered his brother Abel? Who gave Nimrod the inspiration to build the tower babel? What possessed Pharaoh of Mitzrayim to slaughter all the IVIRY infant males? Why did king Ach'av (Ahab) give his wife Jezebel authority to murder prophets and priests? I can repeat this for hours but Chanok sums it all up for us CHANOK (ENOCH) 69:7-8 את CEPHER He seduced Chuah; and discovered to the children of men the instruments of death, the coat of mail, the shield, and the sword for slaughter; every instrument of death to the children of men. From his hand were derived to them who dwell upon earth, from that period forever. Some may ask who he is? But that same he is worshipped in music and films and every April, October and December celebrated and continues to be a thorn for the lineage of Iyov (Job). When the MOST HIGH ELOHIYM asked Satan where he was, Satan casually said walking upon the earth. Satan was examining and testing all those displaying obedience to YAHUAH'El to either entrap them or corrupt them with wealth or power. It is fascinating how we live in a time where there is an abundance of research tools at our fingertips on faith and religions but many are still acting spiritually illiterate or questioning the authentication of the TORAH and CEPHER.
The music, television and film industry makes series, movies and songs quarterly on demon possession but have yet to produce a series on the YASHAR'EL nation with correct name pronunciation and visual authenticity. How intense would it be to make a series similar to Alex Haley's "Roots" but follow all three families of Noach lineage up to our generation? We have so many misconceptions of the sons of AVRAHAM, Yishma'el and YItschaq. The twin sons of YItschaq, Esau and Ya'aqov. The originators of foreign religions and the rise of demonic possession and influence. The true genetic identification of native Americans and lineage of Yapheth has been hidden to depict a narrative that is not correct or misleading but like Iyov told his companions to teach him in the ways he was in error we should seek the same truth. IYOV (Job) 6:24 but most parishioners rather listen to false biblical interpretations. Many parishioners from Christianity, Islam and Judaism may not understand the covenant of AVRAHAM or studied the TORAH from beginning to end or read all 87 books but may have read the passage from IVOY (Job) 1:6 regarding the interactions that occur among celestial beings. YASHAR (JASHER) 22:46-51 את CEPHER And the day arrived when the sons of Elohiym came and placed themselves before Yahuah, and Satan also came with the sons of Elohiym before Yahuah. And Yahuah said unto Satan, Whence come you? and Satan answered Yahuah and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. And Yahuah said to Satan, What is your word to me concerning all the children of the earth? and Satan answered Yahuah and said, I have seen all the children of the earth who serve you and remember you when they require anything from you. And when you give them the thing which they require from you, they sit at their ease, and forsake you and they remember you no more. Have you seen Avraham the son of Terach, who at first had no children, and he served you and erected altars to you wherever he came, and he brought up offerings upon them, and he proclaimed your name continually to all the children of the earth. And now that his son Yitschaq is born to him, he has forsaken you, he has made a great feast for all the inhabitants of the land, and Yahuah he has forgotten. Satan has watched the movements of the IVIRY patriarchy to accuse us of disobedience and fleshly corruption since A'dam and Chuah were exiled from Eden. Iyov told his wife and companions that Eloah knows his intentions and searches him for any iniquity. Iyov proclaims only Eloah can deliver him from the calamity he's experiencing, not fleshly man or celestial beings. Iyov recognize Eloah as the creator and his hands have made him and fashioned Iyov from clay and at anytime will bring him back to dust. IYOV (JOB) 10:6-9 את CEPHER The tale of Iyov is a cautionary one because whatever is hidden in secret will eventually be exposed and held against you but unlike mankind that thrives on scandal and controversy to harm reputations and careers, YAHUAH'El offers repentance and salvation to everyone with hidden secrets. Examine patriarchs that once lived a less than stellar lifestyle. Apostle Pa'al (Paul), MA'ASIYM (Acts) 26. Shimshon (Samson) SHOFETIYM (Judges) 15:4-8 Rachav (Rahab) YAHUSHA (Joshua) 2 Apostle Mattithyahu (Matthew) MATTITHYAHU (Matthew) 9:9-13. Satan has brought accusations against all these people like he did AVRAHAM with the birth of YItschaq. What accusations is Satan hurling against you? This cautionary tale goes out to all the ministers who are former pimps, hustlers, corner street peddlers. If you were once or still a gang banger, active shooter, con artist, harlot your life is much more valuable to YAHUSHA HA'MASHIACH than you can imagine. Those in prison or on trial waiting for a date, you will wake up one day and the Holy Ruach will take over and you will become a spiritual warrior. Don't wait till your at your lowest point to seek repentance and come to YAHUSHA HA'MASHIACH broken and confused. Come to YAHUSHA with your head held high, with full strength and dignity. How many times do we have to hear Gospel and Christian singers say "YAHUSHA saved me at my lowest point or YAHUSHA HA'MASHIACH stepped in right on time"? Iyov experienced the fatalities within his family circle and devastation of his financial well being. Iyov was very wealthy and obeyed every Mitsvah (Commandment) from YAHUAH'El. Iyov was a beacon of light to those dwelling in the darkness. He spoke common sense and encouragement to individuals in a state of confusion. A teacher of precepts and an evangelist for righteousness. What do you think will happen if all the tv evangelists with the status of Peter Popoff, Td Jake's, Creflo Dollar, Joel Osteen spoke truth to their parishioners about repentance, sodomy, idolitry, greed and blasphemy? Let's say they had an ipifanee or coming to YAHUSHA moment and only words they spoke came directly from TORAH and mitsvah. Satan and his army are working overtime accusing millions of individuals worldwide of sins they can repent for. Let's make Satan work! Let's make these preachers and ministers fully expound the CEPHER and go beyond their religious boundaries so all can be washed clean who were once dirty. Iyov was falsely accused by Satan but the MOST HIGH ELOHIYM knew Iyov heart and knew his compassion for righteousness so YAHUAH'El allowed Satan to test Iyov. The lineage of Iyov don't have to venture alone in the wilderness because we have precepts to guide us through the darkness. Precepts that were once hidden and forbidden are now accessible to all of us so we can restore the covenant of AVRAHAM. YOVHELIYM (JUBILEES) 5:12-17 את CEPHER And he made for all his works a new and righteous nature, so that they should not sin in their whole nature forever, but should be all righteous each in his kind always. And the judgment of all is ordained and written on the heavenly tablets in righteousness even the judgment of all who depart from the path which is ordained for them to walk in; and if they walk not therein, judgment is written down for every creature and for every kind. And there is nothing in heaven or on earth, or in light or in darkness, or in She'ol or in the depth, or in the place of darkness which is not judged; and all their judgments are ordained and written and engraved. In regard to all he will judge, the great according to his greatness, and the small according to his smallness, and each according to his way. And he is not one who will regard the person of any, nor is he one who will receive gifts, if he says that he will execute judgment on each: if one gave everything that is on the earth, he will not regard the gifts or the person of any, nor accept anything at his hands, for he is a righteous judge. And of the children of Yashar'el it has been written and ordained: If they turn to him in righteousness he will forgive all their transgressions and pardon all their sins. Did Iyov know the MOST HIGH ELOHIYM would restore him greater than what his status was? The CEPHER confirms this truth, that all will be judged by their deeds. How many people have you heard say "why does god allow all this pain and misery in the world" or " why does god allow good people to die"? The world is Satan's playground and when you realize that all mankind has an expiration date and our actions are being recorded in the CEPHER of life, Even Satan and his followers will be judged so with this truth you will be able to cope with death and tragedy like Iyov did. IYOV (Job) 1:20-22.
We all experienced adversity at some point in our life and how you cope with that adversity is a testament to your strength, faith and Courage. How many people do you know that have faced adversity like Iyov?. Parents lose children daily from tragedy and homicide but imagine your entire family being wiped out simultaneously. It is unimaginable to lose your entire financial portfolio overnight and contract a irritating skin disease but that's the life of IYOV. Can you stand the pressure of losing it all and still maintain your faith and love for YAHUAH'El? How many times have you gone through a difficult situation and listened to a spouse or family friend and should not have? IYOV (JOB) 2:9-13 את CEPHER Then said his woman unto him, Do you still retain your integrity? Bless Elohiym, and die. But he said unto her, You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. What? shall we receive good at the hand of Elohiym, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Iyov sin with his lips.
How many times have you witnessed a tragedy on the news and subconsciously admitted that your glad it wasn't you? Iyov trained his children to maintain uprightness and never be persuaded to let sinful people make them abandon their moral values. Satan choose Iyov because the MOST HIGH ELOHIYM recognized Iyov as a pillar of obedience, righteousness and steadfast in his faith. The test YAHUAH'El allowed Satan to conduct on Iyov is for our faith when we encounter adversity. The choices we make reflect our moral instructions and unlike Iyov that didn't know where all his calamity derived from, our generation knows Satan and how he is accusing us of sin and disobedience at the judgement seat. To keep it 100 with you, few individuals among mankind are like Iyov even though they proclaim righteousness in public but are hypocrites in private. Examine all the precepts and the history of YASHAR'EL nation and you will discover that both men and women have answered the call from YAHUAH'El while others just let the phone ring. When I examine Iyov and what he suffered because of his zeal for righteousness and faith in ELOHIYM, we should never take Satan for granted. People always ask why does the MOST HIGH ELOHIYM allow suffering and pain to befall good people but define good people? Iyov was not sinless, but his lifestyle as a whole was of upright character. Iyov had an impeccable reputation and his enormous wealth did not interfere with his daily devotion to YAHUAH'El. Satan came at him with both barrels blazing under the watchful eye of the MOST HIGH ELOHIYM. Everyone turned their backs on Iyov (including wife) because of their own assumptions regarding Iyov character or lack of faith. Iyov experienced calamity first within his family and livestock and then upon his own health.
The New Testament epistles teach that repentance is open for believers in the ministry of YAHUSHA HA'MASHIACH. Therefore remember what the apostles prayed for: Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, For your fellowship in the Besorah from the first day until now; Being confident of this very thing, that he which has begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Yahusha Ha'Mashiach: Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the Besorah, ye all are partakers of my grace. For Elohiym is my record, how greatly I long after you all in the tender mercy of Yahusha Ha'Mashiach. And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; PHILIPPIYM (PHILIPPIANS) 1:4-9 את CEPHER
When accused by his so-called friends, the testimony of Iyov life defended him.
