PRAY FOR THOSE IN AUTHORITY


I have published the message entitled PRAY ALWAYS, and today I need to speak in detail on the need and obligation we have to pray for those who are in authority.
Maybe the person in authority, if you are a woman, is first of all your own husband.
Qorin’tiyim[i] 1, 11:3 And I want you to know that the head of every man is Mashiach[ii], and the head of woman is the man, (her husband), and the head of Mashiach is Yehovah.
Eph’siyim[iii]  5:22-24 Wives, subject yourselves to your own husbands, as to the Adon. 23 Because the husband is head of the wife, as also ha’Mashiach is the head of the assembly, and He is Saviour of the Body. 24 But as the assembly is subject to Mashiach, so also let the wives be to their own husbands in every respect.
I know that especially here in the United States this commandment is not always kept. We are called to be subject to authorities, and our first authority when we marry is our own husband. Yehovah help American women!
That been established, now let us talk about other authorities, and specially those who rule over us in politics. Our mayors, governors, our house of representatives elected ones, and those of the senate, and of course the president.
Romiyim[iv] 13:1-7 Let every being be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from Elohim, and the authorities that exist are appointed by Elohim. 2 So he who opposes the authority withstands the institution of Elohim, and those who withstand shall bring judgment on themselves. 3 For those ruling are an object of fear, not to good works, but to evil.  Do you want to be not afraid of the authority? Do the good, and you shall have praise from it, 4 for it is a servant of Elohim[v] to you for good. But if you do evil be afraid, for it does not bear the sword in vain. For it is a servant of Elohim, a revenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.
This passage continues to exhort us to be subject because of our conscience, and we must pay our taxes, and respect them.  We also read in the letter of Shaul to Timothy the warning not to forget to teach the people about this subject.
Titos[vi] 3:1 Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to obey, to be ready for every good work.
When Shaul/Paul wrote this letter to Timothy they were under the authority of the Roman Empire, and Caesar had no piety. In fact if you remember Yehoshua was killed during this time. Israel had become content with them, their enemies. But when they became believers in Mashiach our Messiah, there was a great persecution from those who did not believe in Him. Those unbelievers they actually used their oppressors, the Romans, to kill the Nazarenes, which were the followers of Mashiach.
 But the way, history may repeat itself in the future, with such organizations as NAR, Kingdom Now, the Seven Mountains, and the one Global Church that is arisen and functioning now. Now is the time to pray for those who are deceived and misled in the Body of our Mashiach, and for those elected politicians who are not serving Yehovah and believe in Yehoshua.
I do not have to tell you what is going on, if you listen to the news. Personally I do not listen to all the negative, but many times truth, coming out of the CNN.  I do not even owe a television. However,  I am informed on what is going on.
You may hear that such person is such and such, and you may begin to have hate in your heart toward that person, or persons.  Remember that all those in authority have been placed there by our Sovereign Elohim, Yehovah. Be that He placed them for good or to discipline us, His people, who have turned away from following Him, but serve self and other gods. You may love money so much that you comprise your faith, if you love Yehovah at all. You may have murdered your own baby in the womb, either your womb, if you are female, that of your wife if you are a male. You may be involved in illicit affairs, male and male, and female and female, these things are condemned by Yehovah. Do you wonder then if the leadership is not functioning as it should? Yehovah gives us such people to test our faith, and to also judge us.
I am not implying that we are under judgment as yet. But if we do not obey our Elohim, Yehovah, we will be under severe judgment very soon. And it does not matter who is going to be in power, a democrat or republican at all. This world will experience more deception than we are experiencing now. Many of us will receive the Anti-Messiah with open arms.  He will come with many promises, and deceive many. He will be a dictator. Read the Scriptures and check if I am telling the truth. Of course if you are not serving Yehovah and received and believed in His only Son, Yehoshua, you will fall into the deception. You will not have any knowledge of what is taking place.  
Do you know Yehoshua?
If you do, love your neighbor, no matter how evil he or she may be.
Pray for them fulfilling the will of our Heavenly Father in Heaven.
Every believer needs to repent, and seek the Face of Yehovah, our Elohim Almighty, who for His Name sake, and because of the Blood of Mashiach that was shed for all humanity. By His grace He may grant us the request to live in peace.
Are you ready for what is coming, or will you continue to be the accuser and forget to pray? Think on your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, your whole family, do you want them to be tormented by evil leaders? NO! Then pray now. He may delay the judgment a little longer.
But know that His judgment is coming, for the days now are as Yehoshua said they would be, as the days of Noah, (Matt. 24:37) and the days of Sodom and Gomorrah (Luqas[vii] 17:29-30) Idolatry, homosexuality, the love of money, and not caring for the poor, false prophets, false Mashiach, all these signs are here already. The time is indeed near. We do not know the day or the hour, but we can see the signs.
One day Yehoshua began to talk to them about the last days and pointed to the Temple.
Mattithyahu[viii]24:2-3, 4-7 11-12, 15, 29-31, 32-35, 42 And Yehoshua said to them, do you not see all these? Truly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, at all, which shall not be thrown down.” 3 and as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the talmidim came to Him separately, saying, “Say to us, when shall this be, and what is the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
This is end of the age, not of the world.
4 And Yehoshua answering, said to them, “Take heed that no one leads you astray. 5 For many will come in My Name saying, ‘I am ha’Mashiach,’ and they shall lead many astray.
6 “And you shall begin to hear of fightings. See that you are not troubled, for these have to take place, but the end is not yet. 7 “For nations shall rise against nation, and reign against reign. And there shall be scarcities of food, and deadly diseases, and earthquakes in places.”
 ( Now Islam is chopping heads off. We hear of wars and fights, and shootings  are happing all over…anti-Semitism, abortion and  murdering their own children, and children killing their parents and on and on…)
11 “and many false prophets shall rise up and lead many astray."
Who are the false prophets if not Christians?  I have heard prophecies that were not biblical and spoke lies about a leader.
15 “So when you see the ‘abomination that lays waste,’ spoken of by Dani’el the navi,[ix]  put up in the Miqdash’[x]- he who reads let him understand- 16 then let those who are in Yahudah[xi] flee to the mountains.” 
Please continue reading this whole passage.  
24:29-31 these verses speak of the return of Yehoshua in the clouds of Heaven. He will come with the sound of the trumpet, and the angels will gather the chosen ones.
 The sign of the fig tree.
32 “And learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that the summer is near. 33 So you also when you see all these, know that He is near, at the doors. 34 ‘Truly, I say to you, this generation shall by no means pass away until all this takes place.”
Who is the fig tree?
The fig tree it is Israel. She has become a nation and has become a superpower by Yehovah’s grace. Look out for what is going to come to pass very soon. 
The desired revival will only come when we repent. Repent of the sins that have been legalized. Those sins affect all of our lives.  Now Christians do not feel the need to repent, but soon they will, and only then Yehovah will send His refreshing.  But persecution may cause the awakening.
We continue to read in verse 42: “Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Adon[xii] is coming.”
This is what the Spirit is saying to us: Watch and pray for the salvation of those in authority.  
Hallelu Yah Hallelu et Shem Yehovah! Praise Yah, Praise the Name of Yehovah!

PRAY WITHOUT CEASING


Yehovah[i] calls us to pray. We may, at times, simply say an Our Father, and go to sleep, but this is not pray without ceasing.
Tas’loniqim 1/1 Thessalonians 5:17 “Pray without ceasing.”
The above words were spoken by the Apostle Shaul, Paul, who is speaking to us today. And we read in another book the following passage.
Qorin’tiyim1/1 Cor. 14:1 “Pursue love, and earnestly seek the spiritual gifts, but rather that you naba[ii]. For he who is speaking in a tongue does not speak to men but to Elohim[iii], for no one understands, but in the Ruach[iv] he speaks secrets.”
Then Shaul explains the need to prophesy. This assembly was been taught by Shaul, and He gave them instruction on speaking in tongues. Tongues are the Spiritual Language of the Ruach haQodesh[v] that Yehovah released on the 120 persons on the Feast of Pentecost 10 days after His return to Heaven. Those 120 had already experienced salvation through Yehoshua.  But now He sent them the Ruach haQodesh to empower them, and us today, to be effective witnesses.
However, they needed guidance if they felt they had a prophetic message while speaking in the Ruach haQodesh Language, (tongues). They needed to be silent if they did not have to ability to interpret in their local language, or there were no interpreters.  
We know this because we, who have received this gift, have learned to ask Yehovah to give us the interpretation when we sense that we have a message for the assembly. I have personally experienced receiving messages in tongues, which I gave, and prayed to receive the interpretation. He gave to me, and all of us got blessed and edified.
But in the beginning He taught me to speak out, and then pray for someone to interpret, and He always used a person to interpret. There was never a problem.
In fact at times, I sang in the Heavenly Tongues and someone interpret it. Tongues is a beautiful gift, and it releases faith in all of us. Actually when we speak in tongues our Spirit prays through us, according to the will of the Father, and it bypasses our minds.  Therefore is a very powerful prayer.  And when we worship in tongues is wonderful and Yehovah’s presence becomes evident to all.
It also benefits our physical body. This has been proved scientifically. Let us really understand that Satan does not understand tongues, and therefore he tries very hard to discredit it. But he fears it. However Yehovah will not allow him to win. Yehovah is above any created being, and Satan was created by Him as a worship angel. It seems that he led the worship in Heaven.   
Some Christian Denominations are very good in soul winning, but they lack the power of the Ruach haQodesh.
Ma’aseh/Acts 1:8 declares: “But you shall receive power when the Ruach ha’Qodesh.
 Those nice people actually deny that this gift is from Elohim. This causes much division in the Body of Mashiach[vi] and offends the Ruach haQodesh. We must pray for them.
This is the reasons I am writing this message:  Prayer. We must pray for the correct interpretation of the Scriptures. And pray that those who oppose this gift, to humble themselves and seek Yehovah to reveal to them the whole Truth. I know that Yehovah will answer their prayer. If they pray with an open heart, He will reveal to them His truth.  
Shaul gives instructions to this assembly.
Qorin’tiyim 1, 14: 13-15, 22, 26, 31, 18, 39
When a person has a message in tongues has to have an interpreter.
“Therefore, he who is speaking in a tongue, let pray that he might interpret. 14 For if I am praying in a tongue, my spirit is praying, but my understanding is without fruit. 15 What then is it? I shall pray with the spirit, and I shall also pray with the understanding.  I shall sing with the spirit, and I shall also sing with the understanding.
Tongues are a sign to unbelievers
22  So then tongues are for a sign, not to those who believe but to unbelievers, and naba is not for unbelievers but for those who believe.
26 What then brothers? Whenever you come together, each one has a tehillah[vii], has a teaching, has a tongue, has a revelation, has an interpretation. Let all be done for up building.
31 “For you are all able to naba one by one, so that all learn and all be encouraged.’
Again speaking in heavenly tongues will build us up. In fact I have learned that when I speak in tongues all the other gifts begin to operate. (Qorin’tiyim 1 /1 Qorinthians 12)
When the Ruach gives a message in tongues we know because the tongues usually change. We sense very strongly that the Ruach haQodesh wants to speak.
39“So, then, brothers, earnestly seek to naba, and do not forbid speaking in tongues. 40 Let all be done decently and in order.”
Personally experience
When I received salvation, the Ruach haQodesh came to me. Yehovah spoke to me and  said: “This is the Ruach haQodesh.” And He, the Ruach came into my heart and delivered me. He also gave me a strong desire to get to know Him. Finally I went to a prayer meeting, and there they were speaking in  Heavenly Tongues, and I heard a couple singing in the Spirit. The husband spoke in German saying, “I love You God, I love You, I love You."And his wife sang in French “I love you, I love You, God I love you.” Because I have learned these two languages I understood them and after the worship service I asked them if she was from France and he from Germany.  They said no. Then I insisted because told them what I heard.  But they denied saying, “I do not speak French,” and “I do not speak German.” They had no clue that they had spoken actual languages!
Speaking in tongues is not babbling as someone ignorantly says!
Eventually I went as a missionary to Saipan, Micronesia. After I was there a short time, the Ruach ha’Qodesh spoke through me. One morning as I was praying in tongues during my prayer time my tongues suddenly changed and I sensed the presence of Yehovah. Then the voice  said to me: “It is time for you to go. Someone will come to take over the work.” And then the voice said: “By the way, you spoke in Chinese.” This word came to pass. Someone came to take over the work, and several months later I returned to Maui, Hawaii. My mission had ended, and a new assembly had been formed.  
About one year later I became an assistant pastor as I was involved in ministry at an assembly on Maui. The pastor asked me to go to Lanai, Hawaii, to establish an extension assembly for him. I did go. 
 One day as I was ministering to a young couple, I prayed in tongues for them, and present there was also a Japanese missionary lady who came to assist me.  While I was praying she was saying, “This is right, this right.”
After the people left I asked her the reason why she was saying to me, “This is right, this is right,” and she answered, “Because you were speaking Japanese and telling them that they needed to receive the Baptism of the Ruach haQodesh.” I was not surprised for I knew I had the gift of prophetic tongues, together with the prayer Heavenly Tongues. These are two different gifts. One is the prayer language, which we do when we pray all together in a public service. During those precious times the Ruach haQodesh comes to us in special way, and we sense His presence.  
The other aspect of tongues is prophecy, and this is to minister to all us. The Ruach haQodesh encourages us. Many times the prophetic word is for a particular person, family, or ministry. But everyone is blessed by it.
Now I hope that you understand  what Shaul/Paul was speaking concerning speaking in tongues. Do not fear, ask Him to fill you with His Ruach, and He will.
Please, please, do not say that it is of the devil, for you are hurting the Ruach haQodesh, who is Elohim. Read the fifth chapter of Ma’aseh and hear what Kepha/Peter says to Hananyah when he lied to Kepha.
 Ma’aseh 5: 5 ….”Why have you conceived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to Elohim.”
The Ruach is Yehovah. Do not hurt Him. There is only one Elohim.
 By denying Him, you are hurting yourself.
You will receive power when the Ruach haQodesh comes upon you.
Marqos/Mark 16:15 “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues, 18  they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
Yehoshua said:
Ma’aseh/Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power when the Ruach ha’Qodesh has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Yerushalayim, and in all Yahudah[viii] and Shomeron[ix], and to the ends of the earth.” 
Yehoshua sent the Ruach haQodesh on Pentecost and 120 believers received the Power of the Rauch as He say to them. (Please read Ma’aseh 2)
Paul testimony
Qorin’tiyim 1/1 Cor. 14: 18 “I thank my Elohim I speak with tongues more than you all.”
Romiyim/Romans 8:26 “And in the same way the Ruach helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray, but the Ruach Himself pleads our case for us with groaning unutterable.”
Pray always in tongues for your family, friends, employers, banks, politicians, and everyone in authority.
