These are some words my teacher Pastor Steve Gray spoke to us on Sunday October 1st at World Revival Church in Kansas City: “The spirit of the L-rd left and we didn’t even know it. When in time of trouble do something about it. You are a Lawbreaker if you are in unforgiveness Walk in faith. Train every day to take on the Devil.” These words hit me like a two by four on the side of the head.
They forced me to take a hard look at myself.
My teacher Pastor Steve Gary knew once again what my prayers are and what I have been speaking to HaShem about these past few months.
Yeshua help me put on the full garments of G-d. The only way I can do this is by studying and then speaking and then doing your words of Torah.
L-rd let me take action and not sit by and do nothing in times of trouble. To quote Evangelist Frank Seamster, “get off my blessed ass-surance and fight for G-d’s kingdom.”
Being a follower of Yeshua is an action word. Being a Jew is an action word.
This demands I must act
L-rd let me be sick of myself so you Yeshua can act and change my life.
Yeshua I am sick of me so change me now so I can become the man of G-d you have destined me to be.
Moshe ended Deuteronomy with these words. “Be strong, be strong, and let us strengthen each other.”
L-rd take out the evil root that is within me so I can become more like you Yeshua.
This is one of our prayers every morning:” Heal us, and we will be healed, save us and we will be saved, for You are our praise. Send complete healing for all our ailments, for You are God, King, the faithful and compassionate Healer. Blessed are You, HaShem, Who heals the sick of His people Israel” (from the blessing for healing, (Jeremiah 17:14.)
“When one speak words of affection his words evoke the love in his soul, and – as is evident – his words bring an increased measure of love. The more he speaks the more the love becomes passionate in his soul with an increased attraction to the object of his love. This is also true with regard to anger. Through speech he adds increased flare and passion to his anger. And therefore the work “Raishis Chochma” advised us that when one is in a state of anger he should not speak because in so doing he will stoke the anger. When he remains silent however, his anger will subside.” Rebbe Rashab, 5659 (1899) page 5”
I love my teachers Pastor Steve and Kathy Gray.
