Trust Me

Almighty
Yahweh is looking for a people who trust in him; a people that believe in his word and follow his commandments. Most people have a code of behavior that they follow. Their code of behavior is usually based on how they were raised and the culture they belong to. The law of Almighty Yahweh transcends any cultural background or religious affiliation you may have. In John 4:20-24 we see that Yahshua tells the Samaritan woman that salvation is from the Jews, not Christianity, not Islam, not Hinduism or any other worship. The term Jew which is Yahudah is from Gen. 29:35 where Leah said “this time will I praise Yahweh: therefore she called his name Yahudah; and she left off bearing.” Even the Jews that do not praise Yahweh are included in the group of religions that have no salvation. The letter J is an English creation and is not a part of the Hebrew alphabet.

Those
who trust in Yahweh are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so Yahweh surrounds his people both now and forevermore. Ps 125:1-2

Where do you place your trust? Man trusts in man—friends, family, lovers, societal experts, or worse of all, self. There may be trustworthy qualities among your associates. You may even receive solid advice from learned men. But the only source of absolute trust is Yahweh. He is sure and solid and always there. He can be relied on in all situations, not only those of some special expertise. He does not act on intuition, but rather on the facts, all of which are at His constant disposal. Place your complete trust in Yahweh today. Exercise in Him. In Ps. 4:5-8 we read: 5Offer right sacrifices, and put your trust in Yahweh. 6There are many who say, "Who will show us some good? Lift up the light of your face upon us, O Yahweh!" 7You have put more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and wine abound. 8In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Yahweh, make me dwell in safety. When we put our trust in Yahweh he responds in a big way by providing the things we have need of every day. He protects his people in whatever walk of life they travel and where ever they live. All he asks of us is to keep his commandments and they are not burdensome.

Trust is defined in many ways so let’s look at several of the definitions of the word:

1. reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc., of a person or thing; confidence.
2. confident expectation of something; hope.
3. confidence in the certainty of future payment for property or goods received; credit: to sell merchandise on trust.
4. a person on whom or thing on which one relies: Yahweh is my trust.
5. the condition of one to whom something has been entrusted. 6. the obligation or responsibility imposed on a person in whom confidence or authority is placed: a position of trust.
7. charge, custody, or care: to leave valuables in someone's trust.
8. something committed or entrusted to one's care for use or safekeeping, as an office, duty, or the like; responsibility; charge.

Reliance is the first definition of trust brethren, reliance on Yahweh’s integrity, strength, ability and faithfulness to deliver on the promises he has given us. Almighty Yahweh exceeds our confident expectation of everything our hope. We believe all the promises that he has given us therefore declaring him to be our hope. The third definition is confidence in the certainty of future payment for property or goods received. He promised us salvation through his son Yahshua the Messiah our hope. Since we have accepted the shed blood of Yahshua we have entered into the covenant with Almighty Yahweh whom we trust. The fourth definition is a person on whom or thing on which one relies: Yahweh is my trust. We rely on Almighty Yahweh for our every need and source of sustenance. The fifth is the condition of one to whom something has been entrusted. We have been entrusted with the glad tidings and to preach them to the entire world in these last days. Matt. 28:19-20 19"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." We have been given a position of trust with our heavenly father that is the sixth definition. The obligation or responsibility imposed on a person in whom confidence or authority is placed: a position of trust. Yahweh has placed us in that position not we ourselves and it is our obligation to be faithful in all we do for him. Definition numbers 7 and 8 are very similar 7 is a charge and 8 is something committed or entrusted to one’s care for use or safekeeping, as an office, duty, or the like; responsibility; charge. In Ps.31:14-17 and 19-24 we see a passage that speaks of the trust and the hope of Yahweh’s people. 14But as for me, I trust in You, O Yahweh, I say, "You are my Elohim." 15My times are in your hand; Deliver me from the hand of my enemies and from those who persecute me. 16Make your face to shine upon Your servant; Save me in Your loving kindness. 17Let me not be put to shame, O Yahweh, for I call upon You; Let the wicked be put to shame, let them be silent in Sheol. 19How great is Your goodness, Which You have stored up for those who fear You, Which You have wrought for those who take refuge in You, Before the sons of men! 20You hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the conspiracies of man; You keep them secretly in a shelter from the strife of tongues. 21Blessed be Yahweh, For He has made marvelous His loving kindness to me in a besieged city. 22As for me, I said in my alarm,
      "I am cut off from before your eyes"; Nevertheless You heard the voice of my supplications when I cried to You. O love Yahweh, all you His saints! Yahweh preserves the faithful and fully recompenses the proud doer. 24Be strong and let your heart take courage, all you who hope in Yahweh. Almighty Yahweh has taught his people to trust in him. Through the captivity in Egypt to the Babylonian captivity Yahweh has taught his people to trust in him for their deliverance. He punishes his children as a father would his child to teach us to trust and depend on him for our very being. We have developed a strong faith in him which we exercise daily as we grow in his grace and knowledge. We hope that Almighty Yahweh will continue to bless each one of you as you place your trust in him.

EYES ON ISRAEL

Without Egypt, Israel will be left with no friends in Mideast

Without Egypt's Mubarak and with relations with Turkey in shambles, Israel will be forced to court new potential allies.

By Aluf Benn

The fading power of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's government leaves Israel in a state of strategic distress. Without Mubarak, Israel is left with almost no friends in the Middle East; last year, Israel saw its alliance with Turkey collapse.

From now on, it will be hard for Israel to trust an Egyptian government torn apart by internal strife. Israel's increasing isolation in the region, coupled with a weakening United States, will force the government to court new potential allies.

Israel's foreign policy has depended on regional alliances which have provided the country with strategic depth since the 1950s. The country's first partner was France, which at the time ruled over northern Africa and provided Israel with advanced weaponry and nuclear capabilities.

After Israel's war against Egypt in 1956, David Ben-Gurion attempted to establish alliances with non-Arab countries in the region, including Iran, Turkey and Ethiopia. The Shah of Iran became a significant ally of Israel, supplying the country with oil and money from weapons purchases. The countries' militaries and intelligence agencies worked on joint operations against Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser's rule, which was seen as the main threat against Israel and pro-Western Arab governments.

Israel's next alliances were forged with Jordan's King Hussein and Morocco's King Hassan. These ties were operated in secret, as well as ties with leaders in Lebanon's Christian community. The late 1970s saw the fall of the Shah of Iran, with an anti-Israel Islamic republic created in his stead.

Around the same time, Egypt and Israel broke their cycle of conflict by signing a peace agreement. Egypt positioned itself on the side of Saudi Arabia, as head of the pro-American camp.

Mubarak inherited the peace agreement after President Anwar Sadat's assassination. Mubarak was cold in his public relations with Israel, refusing to visit the country except for Yitzhak Rabin's funeral, which decelerated normalization between the countries.

Relations between the Israel Defense Forces and the Egyptian army were conducted on a low level, with no joint exercises. Egyptian public opinion was openly hostile towards Israel and anti-Semitic terminology was common. Civil relations between the countries were carried out by a handful of government workers and businessmen.

Despite all of this, the "cold peace" with Egypt was the most important strategic alliance Israel had in the Middle East. The security provided by the alliance gave Israel the chance to concentrate its forces on the northern front and around the settlements. Starting in 1985, peace with Egypt allowed for Israel to cut its defense budget, which greatly benefited the economy.

Mubarak became president while Israel was governed by Menachim Begin, and has worked with eight different Israeli leaders since then. He had close relations with Yitzhak Rabin and Benjamin Netanyahu. In the last two years, despite a stagnation in peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians and worsening relations between Netanyahu and the Arab world, Mubarak has hosted the prime minister both in Cairo and in Sharm el-Sheikh.

The friendship between Mubarak and Netanyahu is based on a mutual fear over Iran's strengthening and the rising power of Islamists, as well as over the weakening and distancing of the U.S. government with Barack Obama at its head.

Now, with Mubarak struggling over the survival of his government, Israel is left with two strategic allies in the region: Jordan and the Palestinian Authority. These two allies promise to strengthen Israel's Eastern battlefront and are also working to stop terror attacks and slow down Hamas.

But Israel's relationship with these two allies is complicated. Joint security exercises are modest and the relationship between the leaders is poor. Jordan's King Abdullah refuses to meet Netanyahu, and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is waging a diplomatic struggle against Israel's right-wing government. It's hard to tell how Jordan and the PA could fill the role that Egypt has played for Israel.

In this situation, Israel will be forced to seek out new allies. The natural candidates include Syria, which is striving to exploit Egypt's weakness to claim a place among the key nations in the region.

The images from Cairo and Tunisia surely send chills down the backs of Syrian President Bashar Assad and his cronies, despite the achievement they achieved with the new Hezbollah-backed Lebanon government. As long as the Arab world is flooded with waves of angry anti-government protests, Assad and Netanyahu will be left to safeguard the old order of the Middle East.

NEWS, NOTES, & NOTABLES

Looking Ahead to the Next New Moon: The new moon for the 12th scriptural month should be visible the evening of Thursday February 3, 2011.So watch brethren. In Genesis 1:14-18 we see the significance of the heavenly bodies. “Then Elohim said, 'Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth;? and it was so. Then Elohim made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. Elohim set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And Elohim saw that it was good.” (NKJV)

Be sure to look for this new moon and report your findings to us by calling our toll free number 1-888-FOR-YPTC. Each month we pray for those who have a petition before Almighty Yahweh, so this month we want to remember the following people:
