Choosing Sides

A situation with Floyd during the 2017 Basketball Finals made me think of repentance.  Repentance means to turn from sin and turn to righteousness. 

Floyd was sitting in his favorite stuffed chair, with snacks on the table, waiting for Game 5 of the NBA Finals to come on the television.  I was walking through the living room and I was only mildly interested because Floyd was a Cleveland’s fan and they were down in the series.  They had won one game and Oakland had won three games so far. 

I grabbed some snacks and stretched out on the sofa to watch the game.  I really didn’t have a dog in this fight, so I was content to cheer for Cleveland while spending time with Floyd.  

Floyd and Shar in Vancouver, BC circa 1995

The first quarter was great!  Cleveland was ahead.  The conversation between Floyd and me was lively.

As the second quarter progressed, Oakland took the lead.  The conversation between us slowed to mostly grunts from Floyd. 

I began to think, “I didn’t sign up for this!” 

I saw how the top two players on Oakland dominated the court and Floyd’s grunts grew into sentences like, “How could they have left him wide open for that shot!”

About that time, my son walked into the room.  I asked, “Which team do you want to win?” 

He said, “I just want to see Durant get a ring.  All the rest of them have rings.”

Hmmm, I thought, “It would be nice to see Durant get a ring.” 

So … I switched teams. 

Then I began to enjoy seeing the three pointers being made from “way downtown”.  My countenance changed.  My “Wow!” was followed by moans from Floyd.

I told Floyd, “You could really enjoy this game, if you just switch teams!” 

He looked at me as if I was a crazy woman!

I could see Oakland was going to win, so I left the living room.  

Oakland won.

Now this is can be an analogy to life.  If your team is pulling you down into darkness, switch to the “light” side

If having no laws is not working for you, switch to the lawful side (YeHoVaH’s Commands). 

If you are plagued with fear, doubts, lack, and other curses, switch to the “blessings” side (Read Deuteronomy 28).

What is the Reason for the Season?

As a child, only once, did I question the honesty and integrity of my maternal Grandma. Even then, when I reflected on all the facts, Grandma was absolved. I remember the incident as clear as if it were this morning.

I was playing in the front room (living room) and our German neighbor, Mrs. Raymond, came up on the enclosed porch. The front door was open, so she just hollered in for my Grandma. Grandma was tall and stout, but moved at a brisk pace to meet her neighbor.  Mrs. Raymond gave my Grandma a large pot of spaghetti. Grandma smiled, received the pot, and thanked her profusely for such a nice gesture. Mrs. Raymond turned around to go back across the street and Grandma stepped back in the house, closed the door, went straight to the back door without stopping, and gave the spaghetti to the dog!!

I was confused and in my mind I was about to accuse Grandma of fakery! THEN the facts all stumbled into my head. THE MONKEY! THE MONKEY!

Mrs. Raymond had a pet monkey that had free range of her home and THE KITCHEN. I had seen its open cage sitting in the kitchen while it played all over the table and counters. I liked the monkey, but I understood Grandma was not going to eat from a kitchen where the monkey ruled. (I never understood the movie Ratatouille, where the rats were the cooks!! Ugh!)  

Ok, back to the point, I trusted Grandma. When she celebrated and honored Little Baby Jesus and did the gift giving and all the rest of the merry making, I trusted her. I believed that was what I was supposed to do. It had to be in the Bible, after all, Grandma was the mother of her Primitive Baptist Church. She would know if it wasn’t. Christmas was a part of my life that I never ever questioned. (Other than the Santa bit when I got older!)

Traditions and deceptions are passed down through loving and well-meaning people. That is why inherited lies are so hard to extract from people’s lives.

Christmas is one of the holidays that people make excuses to continue to celebrate even when they know it is pagan.

I’m not pointing a finger. I did it. I had all kinds of “good” reasons:

• Jesus is the reason for the season.
• Christmas is a time for family and giving.
• It may be pagan, but I am celebrating the real God.
• I told my children Santa was make-believe, so we can do the rest of Christmas.
• I love the lights and the songs; they make me feel so warm and good inside.

Only when I came into Hebrew Roots did I have an attitude change, or renewing of my mind. I faced the truth and nothing but the truth. I came to realize that all my actions are my “fruit”. I cannot be an Ambassador of the Most High and then dabble a little in the parties; show up for the dinners, but not eat the ham; “accidentally on purpose” ride through the holiday light displays; or hum very low the holiday songs in the stores during the season.

YeHoVaH (God’s Hebrew name) commands that we keep the Holy Days in Scripture. NOWHERE in Scripture did Yeshua (Jesus’ Hebrew name) or His disciples celebrate Christmas or even refer to Christmas.

We will be held accountable for how we lived this life according to the Almighty’s Law!

The reason for the season is that we all have inherited LIES.

Faith Means Action

The six weeks between June 22nd and July 30th 2013 were loaded with change, chaos, miracles, and a lot of stepping out in faith.

For two years, Floyd and I had been hoping and praying that Read more
