THE STARTER - SEEING THE INVISIBLE
I call God "The Starter." I imagine most people have asked the same question I have since childhood: "Who made God?" Even after telling people about Messiah Yeshua for 45 years I still ask Him that question occasionally. When I really get to meditating about the issue, I still ask My Heavenly Father, "How did You get here? You're God, The Creator. Where did You come from ... who made You?" And I always come up with the answer that God is "The Starter."
Somebody or something had to be here in the beginning. Somebody or some thing had to make things for there to be a medium in which to exist. God, by the very definition of God, is omnipresent: He is everywhere. He is NOT limited by time, space, or any other dimension(s). God is "The Start" ... and "The Starter." Sometimes when I talk to Him I still call Him by the name of "The Starter".
The Lord has asked me to teach you a principle that will allow you to SEE many more MIRACLES. This is a principle about which you have never before heard or read. The Holy spirit told me to teach you the principle of "The Starter – Seeing the Invisible" and to give you examples.
I used to have my wonderful mother make me peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and I would take them down the alley and sit behind a neighbor's garage and talk to Yeshua. I wanted to know "The Starter" but I didn't know how, so I just talked to Yeshua whom I learned about by reading the Torah and the Brit Chadashah and also by attending a Sunday school at a local church.
When I was a little boy 11 years of age I prophesied that I would one day serve God and, also, that men would travel to the moon. (These were not considered possibilities then ... neither the former nor the latter!) I was laughed at for that dual prophecy, but both parts were fulfilled years later.
I read the Holy Bible as a young boy, even though I was not born again. I read the Torah completely and all the New Covenant (Brit Chadashah) gospels, clear into the Book of Acts. I remember the Book of Acts as being so exciting!
I still don't understand how He can be "The Starter" ... but I know Him. And, I know His Son, Yeshua (Jesus), whom I met personally in a room one night when I was alone, by myself. I had carried a small booklet (a little red Bible portion) of scripture verses in my wallet for about 18 months. Every once in a while I would take the little Bible portion out and read it. One Saturday night I was reading the scripture from the Prophet Isaiah in the Tanakh:
"Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord, though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool." (Isaiah 1:18)
I was overwhelmed with conviction for my sins, and I said: "Jesus, if you are there, take my hand." (I was on my bed and had lifted my hand in the air asking Yeshua (Jesus) to take hold of it.) I didn't feel anyone take my hand, and so I got on my knees on the bed and reached up in the air again, and said the same thing. I didn't feel anyone grab my hand and by this time I was weeping much. I thought I was so dirty that God wouldn't take me or forgive me of my sins. Finally, reaching as high in the air as I could, I said something different: "Jesus, I KNOW you are there, please save me."
The next morning I was completely different. I couldn't wait to go hear the Bible preached and went to a small church I had been to once before. I almost ran down the aisle at the invitation. A brother took me into a side room and showed me a scripture from the Jewish New Covenant (Ephesians 2:8-9):
"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast."
I was so happy as I drove home that morning. Everything was different. The trees were different, the sky was different, everything was so beautiful ... even my food tasted different. And my heart was so happy: my sins were forgiven, and I was on my journey to Heaven.
I followed the Lord's command and participated in Mikvah (was baptized in water) about one month later. I knew what I was doing and wanted to be obedient to the Lord's command. I figured that if I couldn't obey Him in His first command, I probably wouldn't be obedient in any others.
I started believing God for the salvation of my family and relatives and began actively talking to them about the Lord. Even though most of them were religious, I realized they were not truly born again by the Spirit as none of them ever talked about the Lord in a personal way, and none of them had assurance that if they died they would go to Heaven.
I prayed to "The Starter" and claimed a verse I found in the Brit Chadashah in Acts 16:31, which says: "Believe on the Lord Yeshua ha Meschiach, and you will be saved: you and your household."
My mother, who had been in religious most of her life was first to be saved about one month after and then she was baptized. My brother, who had been my Sunday school teacher and who had been a trustee and a deacon for 14 years was next to be saved. (I never heard my brother curse at all in his whole life, I never knew him to mistreat a woman, and I never knew him to drink. He was a good brother and extremely moral and I have always been very proud of him; he was an excellent example to me.)
My brother lived in the wealthiest part of town; we had both graduated from the same college; he finished 10 years before. After he was saved, he was baptized, and quit three (3) of the secret orders he belonged to: The Masons, The Scottish Rite, and the Shrine. He also resigned from the private country club to which he belonged. He became a wonderful example of what G-d can do through a person; and turned many people to the Lord.
My sister, my nieces and nephew, aunts and uncles, cousins to the second cousins, and all seven (7) of my children, plus all seven (7) grandchildren know Yeshua, the Son of "The Starter". I was the first one to be a born again believer in my family, even though almost all of my relatives were religious. You can believe God's promises for the salvation of YOUR family. Moses told Pharaoh, "There shall not a hoof be left behind." (Torah: Exodus 10:26) That's what you need to tell the devil regarding the salvation of your loved ones! What a wonderful thing to know that all of your family will be in Heaven together!
Two medical doctors (in two different states of the USA) gave me laboratory results that I would (the same as) never have children. However, "The Starter" gave me seven children, all of whom know Him. I was the youngest and LAST son in my Father's lineage and the only one to bear sons. So … God STARTED a NEW born again seed line in the lineage of my forefathers. My sons and daughters are all Spirit-filled soul winners. My daughters are very beautiful. They shine for the Lord. When thinking of them I often think of the verse in Job 42:15: "In all the land were found no women so beautiful as the daughters of Job."
Before you can SEE God's MIRACLES in a certain area, or domain of manifestation, you need to BELIEVE that He has that ability in His nature to perform in that specificity. For example, we read in Psalm 43:1 (probably written by Kind David), "O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man." At one time King Saul was hunting David to kill him (later, also, he tried with 3,000 men to catch and kill him). [1 Samuel Chapters 23 and 24]. "But there came a messenger unto Saul, saying, 'Hurry and come, for the Philistines have invaded the land'. Wherefore Saul returned from pursuing after David." [Verses 27 and 28]
One aspect of deliverance is to realize that God can START situations at any time! This principle will help you SEE a lot more MIRACLES in your life and ministry. After I was told by two medical doctors that I couldn't have children, God STARTED LIFE and gave me seven (7) children.
You need to SEE the invisible and BELIEVE God to START your MIRACLES. God is "The Starter."
In John 11:39-45 we read about Yeshua raising Lazarus from the dead after he had been dead four days. Yeshua told them to take away the large stone on the mouth of the burial tomb, and said to Martha, "Didn't I say to you, that, if you would BELIEVE, you would SEE the glory of God." Then He prayed to the Father and said, "I know that You hear me always: but because of the people which stand by, I said it, that they may BELIEVE that you have sent me." "Lazarus come forth." "Loose him and let him go."
There is a "cycle" of production AND propagation here. Meditate on this!
Your job: BELIEVE and you will SEE.
Result in people you're serving: They will SEE and BELIEVE.
As a "believer" your job is to BELIEVE and then YOU will SEE … with the resultant effect that THOSE you serve will SEE MIRACLES and then BELIEVE.
You have to KNOW that God is "The Starter" and you have to SEE THE INVISIBLE IN FAITH. Then you BELIEVE and SEE the VISIBLE. Those around you will complete the cycle when they SEE the MIRACLES and they will BELIEVE God.
And … it doesn't matter HOW God works … just so He works. For example, there was a young man in a perilous situation in Dothan who SAW dreams earlier given to him by "The Starter"; however the young mans' deliverance and worldwide geo-political authority didn't come to pass for 13 years. His name was Joseph. (Torah: Genesis Chapter 37)
There was another young man in Dothan, centuries later, who was in a perilous situation, but who received immediate deliverance by a host of holy angels. (Tanakh: 4 Kings 6:7)
"Elisha prayed and said, 'Lord, I pray you, open his (the young man's) eyes, that he may SEE. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he SAW: and behold the mountain was full of horses, and chariots of fire around Elisha."
Remember ... God can START situations at any time. Know this and believe it. See the invisible.
It doesn't matter HOW God works … just so He works. He is "The Starter"!
What would you have "The Starter" do for you today? You don't have to understand everything about Him. Stop trying to analyze Him ... maybe you should stop trying to analyze the situation you're in ... and just BELIEVE!
If the finite could comprehend the infinite, then the infinite would be finite.
"Don't be afraid; only believe." (Brit Chadashah: Mark 5:36)
