Help in the Time of Famine
From believers to non-believers, all will agree that we are living in perilous times coupled with great economic uncertainty. How can one survive this global famine and the spiritual famine for Yah’s true word?
Psalms 37:18-25 - Yahweh knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be forever. They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. But the wicked shall perish and the enemies of Yahweh shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away. The wicked borroweth and payeth not again: but the righteous showeth mercy, and giveth. For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off. The steps of a good man are ordered by Yahweh: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for Yahweh upholdeth him with his hand. I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
Those who diligently seek the truth of Yah’s word and his righteousness will survive. The righteous are not hearers of the law but doers of the law. The righteous are those that bear good fruits.
John 15:5-10 - I am the vine, ye are the branches: he that abideth in me and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
Key signs of a righteous person will be evident in what they actually do, not just what they say. Ask what fruits are they exhibiting, fruits of righteousness or unrighteousness? By their fruits you shall know them if they are true believers.
True believers will radiate Yah’s glory and be humble as their Great Shepherd Yahshua. Matthew 5:16 - Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. (Not self).
True believers will have the true spirit of Yah; the spirit of truth which Yah gives to those that obey him (Acts 5:32). In the last days, Yahshua constantly warned his disciples to be aware of false believers led by false spirits which are not of Yah but the deceiver Satan.
Matthew 24:4-5, 11 – And Yahshua answered and said unto them, take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name saying I am the Messiah, and shall deceive many. Verse 11 – And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
True believers are empowered by Yah’s true spirit and are determined to keep trying even at times they might fall but as David they are truly repentant and their daily prayer is Psalm 51:10 - Create in me a clean heart, O Yah; and renew a right spirit within me. In the last days, he will not fail his remnant but they will see his glory and need not fear in the time of famine. Yahweh and Yahshua reign!!
Psalms 24:1-5 - The earth is Yahweh’s and the fullness thereof; the world and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. Who shall ascend into the hill of Yahweh? Or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from Yahweh, and righteousness from Yahweh of his salvation.
Psalms 34:6-10 - This poor man cried, and Yahweh heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of Yahweh encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. O taste and see that Yahweh is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. O fear Yahweh, ye saints: for there is no want to them that fear him. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek Yahweh shall not want any good thing.
True believers will also remember Yah’s blessing for those who pay their tithes and offerings. Even a widow’s mite is honourable.
Malachi 3:6-10 - For I am Yahweh, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith Yahweh of hosts. But ye said, wherein shall we return? Will a man rob Yahweh? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith Yahweh of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
Even in perilous times, let us not forget the poor, widow, fatherless and those in need. Blessed is he that considereth the poor: Yahweh will deliver him in time of trouble (Psalms 41:1).
In these last days, true believers be of good courage and be not discouraged.
Psalms 34:15-22 - The eyes of Yahweh are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. The face of Yahweh is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. The righteous cry and Yahweh heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. Yahweh is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but Yahweh delivereth him out of them all. He keepeth all his bones not one of them is broken. Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate. Yahweh redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.
Let us all try to be and stay in the category of the righteous. Remember the importance of daily repentance (true repentance of the heart). We all have sinned and come short of the glory of Yahweh. Be not deceived. Even our Master Yahshua exhorts the importance for all of us to ask Yahweh to forgive us of our sins in the Father’s prayer. This is a daily requirement. Let us not give up trying on the journey to perfection. We have Yahshua to help us. Matthew 28:18 - And Yahshua came and spake unto them saying: All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Therefore, all our weaknesses can be overcome in Yahshua’s name, it is possible to be and stay in the category of the righteous. Don’t give up.
