First, dear brothers and sisters, I need you to understand that my purpose in bringing you this information is not to convince you to see things my way. Instead, my goal and earnest prayer is that you will acknowledge the possibility that there could be MORE to this walk of faith than you’ve been taught by pastors, churches, and theologians. I invite you to step out courageously and dare to consider the reality that maybe, just maybe we all need to dig a lot deeper into the Word of God to uncover that Truth. I strongly discourage you from sitting on the sidelines and allowing someone else to tell you what to think. Please, learn from my mistakes! We must avoid coming into Scriptural study and research with the sole purpose of proving that our entrenched beliefs and favorite teachers are correct. This attitude will only stagnate our walk and stunt our spiritual growth, preventing us from ever reaching true maturity in the faith. We all need to approach the Word with a humble heart, eager to be shaped and changed by the Truth it contains, instead of merely searching for justification to continue on just as we always have.
If you are willing to do what I have described, ask The Most High to cleanse your mind of all man-made doctrines, teachings, belief-systems and then ask HIM to be your teacher. After all, who is better qualified to teach us about His Word than the King Himself?
It’s not anyone’s job (myself especially) to convince you of anything. That task belongs to the Holy Spirit. My job, my “commission” if you will, is simply to share. That’s all I am doing here, humbly sharing what I have learned. As I travel this Path myself and try to allow the Word of God alone to shape my worldview, I continually discover just how much His Word disagrees with what I was taught for years by human teachers and doctrines of man.
If the Holy Spirit compels you to keep reading, I have one simple request. Please, take everything that I say and check out it out for yourself using HIS TRUTH alone and not man’s doctrines, as the standard. It is wise to remember that however educated or authoritative human opinions might appear, they are still vulnerable to error and deception, sometimes with dismal and tragic consequences! However, we should all be encouraged by the fact that HIS WORD can be trusted! Afterall, HIS WORD is TRUTH (John 17:17; Psalm 119: 160).
Finally, while I both accept and appreciate correction and discussion, please understand that I will not be able to engage questions or comments that endanger the environment of love, sincerity and respect that I seek to promote on this page. Hostility and hateful attitudes don’t help us learn, they only entrench us further in our own dogmatic position. I want to get you researching, thinking about and discussing the Scriptures, not arguing and bickering with me or anyone else who disagrees with you about a particular point.
Lastly, I’m going to be maintaining a high level of anonymity as I maintain this page. I’m sure this decision seems a bit unusual, but if you allow me to explain, I think my motivation will become clear. I feel like my name, gender, age, personal history, education, financial status, etc. are all irrelevant to the ultimate goal of this page. None of that matters because I want this space to be about HIM, not me. I do not study, research, write and work for my own glorification or self-worth. It is all for HIS glory and honor alone that I have created this page! I know that HE directed my decision on this particular subject and if this is how HE wants it, I am good with it.
So, from here on out, you’ll only know me by the initials KC. (I’ve always liked those letters together, so why not?) I do feel like I can tell you this much about myself, however. I have been a believer and follower of The One True God almost my whole life. HE revealed Himself to me at a very young age and has been my teacher ever since. (Though I must admit, at times I’ve been an unruly, stubborn and distracted pupil…) There were indeed times when man became my teacher and HE allowed it for a time, that is, until HE did something that changed everything, something for which I am eternally grateful. You may choose to believe or disregard what I’m about to share, but it doesn’t alter the fact that my life was permanently changed. One night, as I lay in unsuspecting slumber, HE came to me in a dream and instructed that HE wanted me to learn everything “Hebraic.” His Words were so clear and yet, that’s not how I interpreted them upon waking and contemplating my mission. I remember telling myself with emphatic resolve, “I’ve got to learn everything there is to know about being Jewish!” and set to work doing just that. It took awhile before I fully understood what HE had actually asked of me. HE wanted me to learn everything Hebraic not Jewish, but in my limited understanding at the time, I thought these two words were interchangeable. Sadly, this misunderstanding is shared commonly among most people in society today. I was to learn, however, that “Jewish” and “Hebraic” are not the same thing at all.
That was the experience which ultimately began my journey and I extend the invitation for you to start down this path for yourself. I will humbly share with you all that HE has shown me and continues to reveal as I get further down the path and deeper into His Truth, His Word.
Are you ready? If so, here is an exercise I would like you to do. Come on, let’s be doer’s of the Word and not hearers only!
Get a note book and a writing implement.
Got them? Good. Now, either look in a concordance (a lot of bibles have a small one in the back, a Strong’s is good, or you can look on the internet) for the word TRUTH as it is defined in the Scriptures. If you ask, HE will direct you to a specific scriptural citation or otherwise, you can just start at the first one listed. Write it down in the notebook and date it. Now, I want you to read it out loud. Speaking the Scriptures aloud makes them personal and more “real” in a sense. You can even add your name where it might fit or else, just mentally project your own identity into the text when you read the word “me” or “I.”
Do this at least once, every day, for the next week. Then I want you to add another “truth” verse, the new date and read it out loud every day. If you develop a sincere desire to know HIS absolute Truth and see it fully manifested in your life, you will soon recognize HIM revealing TRUTH to you…in your personal life, in the world around you, in the very words that you are reading. What ever “truth” you see I want you to write it down in your notebook and date it. I call this a Truth Journal. Just a friendly disclaimer, not all the “truths” HE shows you will be pleasant, but don’t give up! I know that you will soon be amazed by what you come to see and understand.
By the way, “soon” is a relative term. It will be a different timing for each individual, according to HIS specific timing and purpose for your life. Remain steadfast and I promise, HE will show you things that will blow your socks off!
