We cry out to you Abba for the Ancient Paths where the good way is for we have heard the sound of the shofar! The paths we choose in these days ahead are so very important. Our choice could change our life’s course or the course of others! It is critical we don’t rely on logic or our own understanding but by every word from the mouth of Yahuweh and from the witness of Yahushua who gives us the peace that passes all understanding! The times ahead are going to be insanely ~ crazy. Well, that is what the scriptures say. And how do we respond to that?

Choose Your Path Wisely

Listen to the words below and let them in to your nephesh ~ the inner you! Allow Yahuweh’s word to speak to you.


(Jeremiah 18:15) “But My people have forgotten Me, they have burned incense to what is false, and they have stumbled from their ways, from the ancient paths, to walk in bypaths and not on a highway,
(Joshua 1:7)
“Only be strong and very courageous, to guard to do according to all the Torah which Mosheh My servant commanded you. Do not turn from it right or left, so that you act wisely wherever you go.
(Joshua 1:8)
“Do not let this Book of the Torah depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you guard to do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and act wisely.
(1 Samuel 18:14)
And Dawid was acting wisely in all his ways, and יהוה was with him.
(1 Kings 2:3)
“And guard the Charge of יהוה your Elohim: to walk in His ways, to guard His laws, His commands, His right-rulings, and His witnesses, as it is written in the Torah of Mosheh, so that you do wisely all that you do and wherever you turn;
(Proverbs 16:20)
He who acts wisely concerning the Word finds good, And blessed is he who trusts in יהוה.

A Path

(Proverbs 28:26)
He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, But he who walks wisely is delivered.
(Isaiah 52:13)
See, My Servant shall work wisely, He shall be exalted and lifted up and very high.
(Jeremiah 20:11)
But יהוה is with me like a mighty, awesome one. Therefore my persecutors shall stumble, and not prevail. They shall be greatly ashamed, for they have not acted wisely – an everlasting reproach never to be forgotten.

Path of Another Color

We are entering into serious days. Oh Yah, we cry out for the Ancient Paths where the good way is for we have heard the sound of the shofar! We seek your council, we seek your Word ~ help us to choose our paths wisely! We desire that our choices bring Honor & Esteem to you,  Holy One of Israel & to Messiah! So be it that our deeds impact lives for good & cause victory within the Kingdom of Elohim! Amein!

Years ago, around 2008, the Holy Spirit stirred me intently as I read from the book of Zephaniah. I remember reading the verses over and over. I took a small piece of paper and wrote at the top:     PREPARE “Before” (x3) The Decree: Go

Then I wrote down these verses:

(Zephaniah 2:1) Gather together, gather together, O nation without shame, 
(Zephaniah 2:2) before the decree is born – the day shall pass on like chaff – before the burning wrath of יהוה comes upon you, before the day of wrath of יהוה comes upon you!
(Zephaniah 2:3) Seek יהוה, all you meek ones of the earth, who have done His right-ruling. Seek righteousness, seek meekness, if so be that you are hidden in the day of wrath of יהוה.

As I was thinking about writing a new post that little piece of paper was brought to my mind. Now since 2008 Paul and I have traveled to many different states and countries. My precious packages of notes goes along with us. But I honestly did not even know if I had that particular note any longer. I thought, if it was important I would find it and I did! I had a strong sense I needed to post it so I wrote out the scriptures June 1, 2015. Now at June 30th I believe it is time to finish this post and send it out to the world.

At the time I made this note in 2008 I strongly felt the Ruach [Spirit] was giving me a warning. I still feel the same. The word “Go” however, is a trigger word for me and I pay attention when this is said in my Spirit. Possibly this post will speak to the heart of another somewhere in this world. If it does May the Wisdom of Elohim accompany any decision about “Go”. And may the Shalom that passes all understanding from Yahushua/Yeshua be your confirmation!

The last verses that end this post are prophetic. Intense they are, but may we hold dear to our hearts the love of our Messiah and His rescue mission that he will be accomplishing on our behalf. Bless Yah our Redeemer lives and is coming back for His Bride. We were chosen to go through what is approaching this fall and during the Jubilee year following. No one knows exactly what these next fifteen months will entail. But for us ~ the Israel of Elohim ~ may we recall we are Overcomers by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of our testimony.

(Isaiah 26:20) Go, my people, enter your rooms, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourself, as it were, for a little while, until the displeasure is past.
(Isaiah 26:21) For look, יהוה is coming out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their crookedness. And the earth shall disclose her blood, and no longer cover her slain.

Amazing Creation 2

(1 Samuel 12:20) And Shemu’ĕl said to the people, “Do not fear. You have done all this evil. Only, do not turn aside from following יהוה. And you shall serve יהוה with all your heart,
(1 Samuel 12:21) and do not turn aside after worthless matters which do not profit or deliver, for they are worthless.
(1 Samuel 12:22) “For יהוה would not cast away His people, for His great Name’s sake, seeing it has pleased יהוה to make you His people.
(1 Samuel 12:23) “Also, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against יהוה in ceasing to pray for you, but I shall teach you the good and straight way.
(1 Samuel 12:24) “Only fear יהוה, and you shall serve Him in truth with all your heart, for consider what marvels He has done for you.
(1 Samuel 12:25) “But if you persist in doing evil, both you and your sovereign are consumed.”


The opportunity we currently still have is:  Turn aside from worthless matters that don’t profit or deliver your life ~ for they are worthless! Then, continue your life journey & follow the Messiah Yahushua. Considering the times it would be better sooner than later!

(Hosea 2:19) “And I shall take you as a bride unto Me forever, and take you as a bride unto Me in righteousness, and in right-ruling, and kindness and compassion.

(Hosea 2:20) “And I shall take you as a bride unto Me in trustworthiness, and you shall know יהוה.

(Revelation 22:17) And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And he who hears, let him say, “Come!” And he who thirsts, come! And he who desires it, take the water of life without paying!

 Psalms 118:25) I pray, O יהוה, please save; I pray, O יהוה, please send prosperity.

What is or shall we ask, “Who is this prosperity?!” Oh, Israel put your faith in me there is mercy and redemption!


Messiah's Name Yehoshua ~ Modern Hebrew Script

The Name of the Messiah of Israel Yehoshua/Yeshua


(Psalms 118:26) Blessed is He who is coming in the Name of יהוה! We shall bless you from the House of יהוה.


(Matthew 23:38) “See! Your house is left to you laid waste,


(Matthew 23:39) for I say to you, from now on you shall by no means see Me, until you say, ‘Blessed is He who is coming in the Name of יהוה!’ ”


(Mark 11:9) And those going before and those following cried out, saying, “Hoshia-na! ‘Blessed is He who is coming in the Name of יהוה!’


(Mark 11:10) Blessed is the coming reign of our father Dawiḏ – in the Name of יהוה! Hoshia-na in the highest!”


Who is this one referred to in the above scriptures as coming in the Name of Yahuweh/ יהוה? It is His Son, Yehoshua/Yeshua/Yahushua! His son’s Name means: Yahuweh is Salvation.


The reality is that it shall be in the midst of great distress, The True Children of Israel shall once again call upon the Name of The Elohim [God] of Israel and receive mercy & redemption through the Messiah of Israel! They shall be His people, and He will be their Elohim, Halleluyah!


Even so through great distress, they will Overcome. They are Israel. They are our brothers & sisters. Pray for them as family. We are family ~ We Israel.

(Isaiah 12:5) “Sing to יהוה, For He has done excellently; this is known in all the earth.

(Nehemiah 8:11) And the Lĕwites were silencing all the people, saying, “Hush, for the day is set-apart, do not be sad.”

(Nehemiah 8:12) And all the people went to eat and to drink, and to send portions and make a great rejoicing, because they understood the words that were made known to them.





(Amos 6:9) And it shall be, that if ten men remain in one house, they shall die.

(Amos 6:10) And if a relative, or his undertaker, brings the remains out of the house, he shall say to one inside the house, “Is anyone with you?” and he says, “No,” then he shall say, “Hush!” For we have not remembered the Name of יהוה!



(Zephaniah 1:7) Hush! in the presence of the Master יהוה. For the day of יהוה is near, for יהוה has prepared a slaughter, He has set apart His invited ones.

(Zephaniah 1:12) “And at that time it shall be, that I search Yerushalayim with lamps and punish the men who are settled on their dregs, who say in their heart, ‘יהוה does no good, nor does He evil.’

(Zephaniah 1:17) “And I shall bring distress on men, and they shall walk like blind men – because they have sinned against יהוה, and their blood shall be poured out like dust and their flesh like dung.”

(Zechariah 2:13) “Hush, all flesh, before יהוה, for He has roused Himself out of His set-apart dwelling!”


Are you ready? Seriously, are you really ready? If you are, Halleluyah!

If you are not ready, repent, cry out to Yahweh/Yahuweh & ask to be forgiven in the Name of His son, Yeshua/Yahushua. Now run back towards Yahweh/Yahuweh ~ quickly! The Messiah of Israel does not want to lose you for eternity. He wants you to be with Him for eternity because He loves you!  It is time ~ you are being called. Return!


 יהוה:  Yahweh or Yahuweh are renderings of the Hebrew Name of the Father.

We passed the halfway point of this Shemitah Year which is a fitting time to repost! 

What’s a Shmita?!  This is a short “story” about the Sabbatical Year or Shmita people around the globe are talking about. This piece will help you understand just how this could possibly apply to you! May this challenge and bless your soul…

Quotes From: ~ please note Yahstix does not endorse Kabbala, the religion of Judaism, Oral Law, Talmud, or Mishnah.

“The Sabbatical Year (Shmita) in Israel is finally here… But can a modern nation disregard their fields for an entire year? Observing the laws of Shmita is a test of faith and an opportunity to reaffirm one’s commitment to God.”


”Observing the laws of Shmita demonstrates the understanding that nothing truly belongs to us. Even the land that one owns and cultivates belongs to God.”

“It is on loan to us to be used according to His will. All our possessions are His — we are merely the watchmen. You think you have a landlord? There is only one true landlord in this world.
There is a famous story that illustrates this point. The famed sage, Rabbi Yisrael Kagan (1838-1933), known as the Chafetz Chaim (meaning “One who Desires Life”), was once visited by a wealthy admirer. When the visitor entered the rabbi’s tiny home he got the shock of his life: The living room was furnished with nothing but an old table and rickety bench. The kitchen was tiny and primitive. There were no modern amenities at all.
The man turned to the Chafetz Chaim and asked: “How do you live like this? Where are all your possessions?” The Chafetz Chaim asked him: “How did you get here?” “By coach” the visitor replied.
The Chafetz Chaim went outside to see the carriage. After examining it, he commented to his guest: “I don’t see a dining room, kitchen or even a bed inside of this thing!” “But Rabbi, I am just traveling through your town. Travelers don’t bring their beds and kitchens with them!”
The Chafetz Chaim answered: “I too am traveling…traveling through this world to the World to Come. This lifetime is temporary. Why should I amass amenities and possessions?”
This is the lesson of shmita: Life is temporary. Life is fragile. We are merely passing through this world, stopping here for 80 or 90 years only to do His will. We need not get carried away with luxuries and superfluous amenities.
Even today, as we read the Torah portion this week, [Behar, meaning “at the mountain” (Leviticus 25:1-26:2)] the laws of shmita are a timeless lesson. The farmer sits back in obedience to God and does not work his land. Just as the farmer understands that the land belongs to God and obeys His command, he also knows that God could provide for him in many other ways.
We, too, should remember: Everything is His, this world is only temporary, and even when things look bleak and scary, God is there to provide.”


In Exodus (23:10-11) the Sabbatical Year (Shmita) is established: “And for six years you are to sow your land, and shall gather its increase, but the seventh year you are to let it rest, and shall leave it, and the poor of your people shall eat. And what they leave, the beasts of the field eat. Do the same with your vineyard and your olive yard. “
In Leviticus (25:20-22) Israel is promised an abundant harvest if they obey the scriptures: ‘And since you might say, “What do we eat in the seventh year, since we do not sow nor gather in our crops?” ‘Therefore I have commanded my blessing on you in the sixth year, and it shall bring forth the crop for three years. ‘And you shall sow in the eighth year, and eat of the old crop until the ninth year. Eat of the old until its crop comes in.’
Mathew (6:19-21) “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. “For where your treasure is, there your heart shall be also. “

Perrita the Panama Puppy!

 How do puppies find water to drink in Panama when there isn’t a steam close by? We’ll give you a peek!

Panama Pup

This puppy’s mother was a recused dog from the mountains. The mother is a malamute with striking blue eyes. Someone had slashed the mother’s throat. Thank goodness she was found, rescued and adopted by a nice Panamanian family who are friends of ours. The mother had a litter of pups and that is where “Perrita” came from. We were told Perrita means, small, female dog in Spanish. This is the name given to the pup by the Panamanian family

Panama Pups 3

Notice the eye color of Perrita ~ one is brown and one is blue! Her eyes kind of match her cute personality. She’s actually a tough little puppy, always being trained by her Malamute Momma!


Puppy 2

One day we watched the puppy play around the grounds which are covered with exotic flowers and plants. The dog’s water bowls were empty. Perrita scouted about the property investigating various flowers. She was so funny during her investigation we had to get the camera. As we got closer we captured photos of what she was up to! Perrita was scavenging for water in the flower cups! In these photos this particular plant was full of water at the bottom and it was “bottoms-up” by our little Perrita as she drank her fill from the plants of Panama!

(Isaiah 26:7) The path of the righteous is uprightness; O upright One, You weigh the course of the righteous.

(Isaiah 26:8) Also, in the path of Your right-rulings, O יהוה, we have waited for You; the longing of our being is for Your Name and for the remembrance of You.

(Isaiah 26:9) My being longs for You in the night, also, my spirit within me seeks You earnestly. For when Your right-rulings are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world shall learn righteousness.

(Isaiah 26:10) The wrong finds favour, yet he shall not learn righteousness; in the land of straightforwardness he acts perversely, and does not see the excellency of יהוה.

Katy’s Progress: February 9, 2015 Update ~ Please Continue to Pray!

(James 5:14 The Scriptures 1998+) Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the assembly, and let them pray over him, having anointed him with oil in the Name of the Master.

Katy received prayer & we anointed her with oil. It was explained to her that our bodies can heal if we put the right things in our bodies & our souls. But even more important than food & water was for her to believe that her savior wants her healed.

Katy is still drinking Kangen Water 2.5 Alkaline three times a day and drinking Kangen Water 8.5 Alkaline all throughout the day. We asked her if she would refrain from all soft drinks & eat fruits, vegetable, beans, brown rice, chicken, clean fish and high alkaline foods. The only medicine the doctors have given Katy is Tylenol for the pain. Katy refrained from even taking the Tylenol [on her own accord]. She reported that she’s been in a lot of pain and is exhibiting detoxification.

We let Katy know there are people all over the world praying for her. Hopefully this will make her faith alive and give her the hope needed to press on & believe!

The tumor has been on Katy’s face for approximately 15 years. It is about the size of a coconut and comes to a point. It is large especially on her small frame. Please continue to pray with us for Katy to be free of pain, detox quickly & be delivered from this tumor. Thank you so very much!
