2 Timothy 1:7 KJV
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
The following information comes to us via a spiritual brother Pastor Bob Woodward, a Man of God.
Good morning from Strafford Mo. The temperature is 35 and the forecast high is 54. .. The Lord’s Day, a day many of us gather to study His word. The infallibility of His word is in the language of origin. The market is being flooded with various versions, transliterations, and translations. Satan, in Genesis 3, did not start his conversation with Eve with a blatant denial of God’s word, he started with a twist and a question, “Has God really said.”
I fear he is using the same tactic today; I have over 8 different versions and I use them all from time to time. I believe that the Lord desires me to caution you as to the validity of the versions on which you build a doctrine, this is not about who’s version we use, it is about making sure that which our eternal destiny rests upon has not been watered down and that it aligns with the original text. … Father as we study your word give us guidance to the translation, transliteration, and versions we use that our understanding be guided by your Holy Spirit. Father in this day of deception and delusion we seek a pure understanding of your word, in Jesus’ name ❤ Amen.
Here ends Pastor Woodward quote.
One of Satan’s more effective tools is a believer’s ignorance of God’s laws. I have found many want to complicate their walk. That thought process is part of Satan’s tactics, of drawing believers into questioning parts of Scripture.
Understand to have his way with you Satan will fan your ego and deepen your prowess. His overall goal, drawing you back into standing on the world’s interpretation that knowledge makes you superior. Contrary to God having us presenting ourselves as knowledgeable, yet humble within that knowledge.
Matthew 23:12 KJV
And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased, and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
It is good to query the word, however, first, gain the basic knowledge to understand how and when to use this newly found [heavenly] wisdom to discern and decipher God’s teachings. John 15:26 But when the Comforter has come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit (o. pneuma) of truth, which proceeds from the Father, he shall testify of me:
Believers who have stood on extrapolating each one of the Ten Commandments individually have learned to acknowledge each level within those commandments is like a detailed set of instructions laid out as layers of information. To be discerned accepted and practiced leading to the next layer.
As we discern, we grow in spiritual wisdom. In doing so we learn that the commandments have layers of knowledge, like an onion needing to be peeled back layer by layer, needing to be received, and exercised to be understood, acknowledged, and practiced thus drawing out all the additional wisdom within that layer. Here is an example in Psalms 91:1-2
 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
When I look at the first commandment, Matthew 22:37 KJV
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
I acknowledge my effort to worship and learn about God and His Son Yeshua, must be a 100% heartfelt commitment, not a mind and mouth profession.
When I discern the first verse of Psalm 91, I recognize the keyword for anything to happen is abide. So, to be abiding, my focus is to determine what Satan will place before me as a point of confusion or temptation.
What will he present as detractors to decrease my trust and faith? Now it is time, to be honest, and sincere, time to discern the following. Psalm 91:2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
Those who by trust choose God for their protector shall find all in him that he needs or can desire. My discernment, Satan will attack my trust, as I understand it is the foundation, I base my faith on. With this interpretation, I am now able to apply with founded surety Psalms 91:13-14
 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
Remain in and use the Ten Commandments as a template and guide to deepen your ability to conduct spiritual warfare prayers, and healings. As you extrapolate each commandment you will find your journey being less complicated further understood and offering a deeper, closer relationship with Yeshua which strengthens your reconnection to our Heavenly Father. .
The daily working out of your Salvation will continue deepening your personal relationship with Yeshua. Philippians 2:12 KJV
Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
Strengthening your reconnection and drawing you closer to our Heavenly Father. It offers a powerful walk with Yeshua removing temptations and foolish questions, which would draw you into a delayed or stalled deepening of your understanding with Yeshua and His Father in heaven.
As you enter each level of the Commandment, the Holy Spirit will bring you deeper spiritual knowledge allowing you to venture forth at the level within that commandment, you are discerning at.
This is a simple approach to working out your Salvation, it is an effective way to increase your understanding of the word and a deeper knowledge of how to use it, with and through the gained wisdom offered by Yeshua through the Holy Spirits leading, and teachings. As an example, Psalms 91:9-10
 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation.
 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
This style of partnership establishes you in a sound walk and relationship with Yeshua and Yahuwah, registering your name in the book of life, and not being seen as wise in the eyes of men whether believer or gentile. The image approved by Yeshua is one of humility standing before the world as a demonstration of Yahuwah’s love and forgiveness available through His Son Yeshua by our Heavenly Father’s grace.
Matthew 18:4 KJV
Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
CLOSING PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I lay before your Throne the gratefulness of those who have prospered from your teachings. I ask Father at this time for your blessings to be upon them and further strengthening their resolve to bring their bodies into submission.
I lay a further plea Father for your wisdom to flow over them, Lord bringing further recognition of the journey ahead as we follow your Son Yeshua’s footsteps. I pray in the name of Yeshua Amen and Amen.
Remember, I am only a humble servant of Yeshua doing His bidding as a messenger. In doing the research for this writing, I must admit I have been spiritually convicted and pray this message will do the same for you. Working out my Salvation has taken on a very new meaning and purpose. I want to walk on Isaiah’s “THE WAY OF HOLINESS.,” which is entirely up to me, so I submit this challenge to those who are reading these writings to desire the same a place on the narrow road. God’s blessings and strength be with you all.
Ephesians 4:11-14,24 KJV
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;  For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:  Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:  That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;  And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
