The Sixties Radical- Azriel Make Up Your Life!

If everything were spelled out —exactly what you are supposed to do, when, how, with whom and for how long—what room would be left for you to live your own life?

This is why the details of your mission in this world are withheld from you:
Out of G‑d’s great benevolence, so that this little creature can decide on its own and partner with G‑d in its own life.

The Sixties Radical- Azriel Our Father and Mother!

Avraham and Sarah are not the founders of Judaism. They are our father and mother.   For us Jews Avraham is called avinu our father. Sarah is referred to as imeinu our mother.

Avraham and Sarah are literally our parents.

The Sixties Radical- Azriel It feels Different When a Father Carries a Son

These following words my teacher Pastor Steve Gray spoke from Deuteronomy Moshe’s last will and testament to us Jews. moved me to tears  Father’s Day Sunday June 17th.

“It feels different when a father carries a son all the way until you reach your place.”

“A father takes care of his people. A father takes care of his sheep.”

Then I saw with crystal clear clarity how my father carried us Jews in his arms from the beginning of time Adam, through Avraham, Yitz’chak and Ya’akov, Moshe, David, the destruction of the first and second temples, the Holocaust, to when the Moshiach- anointed one comes back.

Then these thoughts crossed my mind on the drive home. Moshe’s true soul is that of a Shepherd. Moshe carried and cared more for his people that himself.

Then G-d took the human form of Yeshua to Shepherd us Jews into the new covenant not like the first which we broke. This one will not be broken.

For you see G-d answered these words “Barukh ata HaShem Eloheinu, Melekh ha’olam.”

I can no longer be carried. I must start carrying my wife, my family, my friends, the people I work with, so they can reach their G-dly place.

It is time for me to act like the G-dly Jewish man HaShem wants me to be.

This is why I love my teacher Pastor Steve Gray.

The Sixties Radical- Azriel Awe Exchange

To a Jewish activist in a dangerous Arab land:

Embolden your awe of heaven and you will diminish your fear of human beings.

The Sixties Radical- Azriel A Kingdom of Priests and a Holy Nation!

We (I) Jews were given the task to be a kingdom of Priests and a Holy Nation to go out into the nations of the world and teach them about the one true living G-d of justice and compassion.

The Jewish nation is to Hallow itself in order to go into the world be a minister and priests to all of humanity.

We didn’t do this and thus this is why G-d took the human of form Yeshua, so we would get our butts in gear to do what G-d wanted us to do when we where given the Torah at Mount Sinai.

The Sixties Radical- Azriel Transform my People into a New Creation

The words my teacher Pastor Steve Gray spoke Sunday June 10th were the words that this Jewish believer in Yeshua needed to hear. These words served as a huge wake up call.

“G-d’s kind of love never fails.  Always is the key.”

Then try this on for size:” Transform, my people into a new creation.” Followed by these gems:” These places not to fail in faith, love and hope.”

Then I saw our (my) Jewish roots from the beginning of time. It all started with Adam and Eve, followed by Avraham, Yitz’chak, and Ya’akov, Moshe, David and Yeshua. I saw liberation from Egypt the golden calf, the ten spies, the destruction of the first and second Temples, the Holocaust. Yet, no matter what happened to us Jews G-d was always there to save us Jews.

What a gift from G-d.

This is G-d’s love.

Then I knew it is time for me to stop acting like his majesty the baby. It is time for me to grow up and act like the G-dly man I was born to be.

You are right Pastor Steve I have a people problem.  Without people what a lonely place the world would be. For without people how would this Jew do the mitzvahs G-ds gave me. How would this Jew transform the world into sparks of light if G-d didn’t create people? How this Jew learn to forgive if people didn’t exist.

Thank G-d for people for without people there would be no Jewish people.

You asked the question Pastor Steve is wrong with me?

It is me and how I interact with people.  All the time my problems stem from this one simple fact. It is call optical recitalist? My eye balls are hooked up to my rear end and I have a crappy outlook on life.

The cure for this is turn back to G-d. Study and do G-d’s word. Treat my wife and my family, my friends and enemies the way I would like to be treated.  With G-d’s perfect love of forgiveness, understanding, mercy, generosity, kindness, and most important of all love. Buy doing these acts this will help pave the way for HaShem-Yeshua to return to reveal to the world the one true living G-d the G-d of my forefathers Avraham, Yitz’chak and Ya’akov.

Thank you, Pastor Steve Gray, for being my teacher.  Without your teachings I would be lost.

These words are straight from HaShem.

The Sixties Radical- Azriel Real Motives

No person can know his own inner motives.

He may be kind because kindness brings him pleasure.

He may be wise because wisdom is music to his soul.

He may become a martyr burned in fire because his heart burns with defiance.

How can you know that your motives are sincere? What is the test?

The test will be when doing the right thing cuts against the grain.

The Sixties Radical- Azriel Redemption

Learning Torah is not a theoretical pursuit. Learning Torah is what happens in the depth of ones being, one’s identity. This is who we are. This is our identity.

Torah transforms my mind, my heart, my body, and my soul so we (I) can show  the world the path of redemption.

The Sixties Radical- Azriel The Word of G-d is The Rule of my Life

Pastor Kathy knocked it outta the park  Sunday June 3rd.  Her words seared the heart of G-d into my mind, my heart and my soul. These words are straight from the lips of HaShem Yeshua.

G-d was speaking through Pastor Kathy.

HaShem Yeshua does this all time at World Revival Church.

These words I needed to hear today.

These words are basic Chasidic teaching 101.

Right on Pastor Kathy.

Thank G-d for Pastor Kathy.

“Your mouth speaks what the heart is full of. The only source for building a foundation is the word of G-d. “

Let’s really get down and get funky with what Pastor Kathy said;” The word of G-d is the rule for my life. His word rules my life.”

Then the real corker to top it off with:” Everyone needs to go through their own crisis between you and Yeshua.”

I thank G-d every day for my teachers Pastors Steve and Kathy Gray. Without my teachers Pastors Steve and Kathy this Jew would be lost.

Let’s get really honest without WRC, my teachers Pastors Steve and Kathy Gray, I would be a dead man.

I’ve been to hell and back. Who saved my life was the G-d of my forefathers Avraham, Yitz’chak, and Ya’akov. HaShem-Yeshua showed me compassion and mercy.

This compassion and mercy rescued me from the hell of Alcoholism and Drug addiction. The miracle of sobriety came on December 16th, 1971. Thank you HaShem for continuous sobriety since December 16th, 1971.

This is only part of the story.

The real nuts and bolts of the story is this little diddy.

The real story is this. G-d has been putting people in my life that kept speaking to me to get back to my Jewish roots.

That road led me to World Revival Church.

Without my teachers Pastor Steve and Kathy Gray, this broken down Jewish man would have never cracked open Torah again.  I would have never made a daily part of my life to study every morning the Torah and the Tanya, to pray- real prayers to start my day off with, and to seek the real face of G-d.

This broken-down Jew would still have his head full garage about Christians and other bad stuff. You see my teachers Pastor Steve and Kathy Gray showed me who the real HaShem Yeshua is.

My teachers have taught me that I was wrong, and I was will of crap.

The real word of G-d wants both Jew and Gentile to worship under one house -The one true living G-d HaShem Yeshua.

G-d is cleaning my head, my soul, and my body out every day. Some days it feels like a root canal.

Yes, it is worth it. For my worst day at WRC is better than my best day anywhere else I have lived.

To quote Pastor Kathy;” Build a life on the words of G-d. Have a character crisis.”

A G-dly life is having children, a mortgage, taking out the garage, washing dishes, doing laundry, and the other mundane stuff. For you see we Jews are taught that we are elevate the world with sparks of Holiness. This is done when we engage the world with mitzvahs in our home, our job, at the store, and all the places we go.

This is why I love my teachers Pastors Steve and Kathy Gray.

The Sixties Radical- Azriel Be Not That

If you are kind, learn also to be fierce.
If you are wise, learn also to be simple.
If you are fire, learn also to stay cool.

Whatever you find yourself being, be the opposite as well.
