Ruach Elohim, the maker of the heavens and earth, goes by MANY names in His Word. These names accentuate different attributes of Him and He may only be known by one or two names by you, personally, but if you have a great memory, several or all. There are a numerous amount of people within this world, with different levels of faith. Not all worship the One True God that I am referring to now, and have been, in past posts. Some have no faith; some have a newly found faith; some have an untold amount of years of faith under their belt; some are self-righteous and some are seeking God’s face at every opportune moment. The afore-mentioned categories have different levels of faith and likewise, different measures of faith.
Ruach Elohim is the Hebrew translation for Spirit of God. It also means Creator, Mighty, Preserver, Strong and Transcendent. It is this name, which was used in Genesis 1:2 when the earth was formless; before He gave it light, shape and a future. Exactly the way He has done with me; exactly the way He has done with you; and exactly the way He has done with us. You may not know it. You may not believe it. You may not understand it, BUT, He sent His Son, Yeshua (Jesus), to transform all of us, and we have all been given the chance to know Him. Acknowledge Him and receive salvation. In the beginning God’s Spirit hovered over the waters and He made the way for creating a place where we may dwell. At the end of the day, right at this moment and in the future, the only thing that really matters is, who God is to you!
Who Is God To You?
Something would have to be wrong if it hadn’t crossed your mind what is really out there. When I say ‘there’ I’m referring to ‘up above’. In heaven(s) or in the universe. Heaven means the dwelling place of God. Heaven is His throne and earth is His footstool. That show’s how Great and Mighty our God is. In fact, Elohim is also a translation of Great! It must have crossed your mind whether or not heaven exists and also (dread the thought), whether God exists. I mean, what is beyond the sky? If it has crossed your mind whether heaven exists it has also crossed your mind whether hell exists. If you believe in one, chances are a belief exists for the other. The thing with ‘man’ is that they think too much of themselves, and don’t believe in anything greater than they are. Some scientists believe that the world began with an explosion and then proton and ion reactions brought about the existence of everything else. However, WHAT made that occur or should I say WHO? Man thinks that it must be as simple as a chemical reaction, not that there was a higher being that caused it. I suppose they could argue that Christians are the ones who can’t believe that it could just happen in that manner. They think we are small-minded and understand nothing. I used to attend a Church and one of the members was a scientist and another a mathematician. Great intellects. Therefore, Christianity is not a belief system just for the layman or people that have nothing to do with their brain cells! I chuckle to myself because I’ve had many conversations with people who have ‘different’, ‘strange’ thought patterns! So, Christians are in the know that we have a Father, Creator, Elohim! who brought the world and the first Adam into existence with three words: LET…IT…BE
The Word of God is filled with many miracles of healing, that it is hard for the human mind to even fathom. They occurred thousands of years ago and still occur today. People who are experiencing pain or adversity may find it hard to acknowledge His existence because they are aware of the pain they feel or situations they are in…but He is here. Sometimes, not in all situations, these things happen and are the very things that pull you close or closer to Him. Will you hear His voice? When you look at the life that exists in the sea, the sea itself, on this earth, in the sky and the universe, please understand that these are the works of our Miracle Working God! Many miracles occurred in the Old Testament by prophets but what we need to consider are the ones of Yeshua, when He was on earth. He healed the blind and the sick, raised the dead, fed the hungry; for both tangible and spiritual food; and had authority of the elements; calming the storm. What are you believing Elohim for today. The Book of Hebrews tells us that we have a High Priest who is aware of/can sympathise with/understands our weaknesses (whatever they may be). All we have to do is go boldly to His Throne of Grace and we will obtain mercy.
John 2:1-11 Yeshua turned the water into wine, at a wedding.
Luke 9:10-17 Yeshua multiplied 5 loaves and 2 fish He was given, which resulted in Him being able to feed 5,000 people. There were 12 baskets leftover at the end. He is a God of the overflow! Supernatural increase! He provides more than enough!
Mark 2:1-12 In Capernaum, Yeshua told a man who was paralysed, to rise, pick up his bed and go home. This was an instantaneous healing, which came about by His Word.
Matthew 8: 23-27 In the presence of His disciples, He woke from a sleep and calmed the storm. This shows us that if we are close to Him He has power over all the elements of this world. The storms around us can be calmed, if we just put all our trust in Him.
Mark 1:40-45 A leper was healed just by touching him and without Yeshua doing anything. He did, however, feel the power leave Him. That was not the only time this happened as there was a lady with an issue of blood. She knew/believed that all she needed to do was touch the hem of His garment, and she would be made whole. It’s highly likely that this happened many other times within His time on earth and it definitely happens today!
His Word is filled with many promises and you can be guaranteed that whenever our Almighty God makes a promise He ALWAYS follows it through. In Numbers 23 he tells us that He is not a man that He should lie, so EVERYTHING in His Word, which I like to call The Manual for Life, rest assured, will be carried through to completion. That means, anything our God Most High has started within or around us, will be followed through until it reaches the expected end. We, as human beings, get impatient and want results immediately, but be patient because HE’S GOT THIS. Our Almighty God is the Bridegroom and we (both male and female), are the bride and we have to make ourselves ready. Contemplate ALL the things that you would require from a husband or wife and know that He is able to provide and more! However, you have to be worthy of receiving them. You can be made worthy via Yeshua, our Messiah. Will you be ready?
Deuteronomy 31:8 And the Lord, He is the one who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.”
Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.
Psalm 37:23-24 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way. Though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand.
John 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
James 5:14-15 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven.
Revelations 19:7 Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready..
LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS!
The world we live in is a very dark one, despite looking as beautiful in the above picture! Whether you watch the news or just read about it online, you will be amazed at how wicked the heart of man is. If we were to be told the amount of people losing their life on a daily basis, we would not leave our homes. Even locking ourselves away, however, doesn’t make us immune to the probability of losing our lives. The main focus at the moment is COVID-19. At the start of the p(l)andemic, you would have thought that there were no other deaths apart from this deadly virus. Many have said it doesn’t really exist, but I’ve known of people who have died and also are undergoing the long arduous process of recovery. Whether it is at the scale being reported or not, there is something out there. However, we need not fear. When we come to know Yeshua, in a real and proper way, the scales have been removed from our eyes. Even if you are an atheist, the Holy Spirit awakens your spirit in another way so your understanding changes. It is only then that you are able to go forth and spread the Gospel effectively and win more souls for the Messiah. Everything concerning Yeshua is Light. Light, as in within His attributes. He is positive. With Him there are no ‘blurred lines’ or darkness. The closer you are to Him the clearer your view of Him and the world will be. The shadows will disappear the more you allow everything about yourself to be revealed to Elohim He will assist you in making changes and you will become open to leaving them for Him to make those changes. Yield all your blemishes to Him. Remember, Elohim knows all but, you have to be willing to allow Him to help you make that change. Follow this link for a more detailed explanation on the differences in views depending on the distance it is from the light. Once watched place yourself as the object and Elohim as the Light. Then meditate on it.
Our Most High God is that Light in the darkness.
Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
John 1:5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
John 8:12 Then Yeshua spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”.
John 11:38 Lazarus had been dead for four days, but he was raised from the dead. Yeshua called him forth and he was resurrected. What is there in your life that needs to be resurrected. Is it your love for the Messiah?
Acts 26:18 to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.’
2 Corinthians 6:14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?
1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;
WAY MAKER, MIRACLE. WORKER, PROMISE KEEPER, LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS, MY GOD, THAT IS WHO YOU ARE!
