During COVID-19 and isolation, I started watching a cooking series. This particular one was a competition-style show where people were competing against one another for money and other prizes. One woman, who often made the sign of the cross when she did well or thanked Jesus/ Yeshua when her dish passed by the skin of her teeth caught my attention.
She was frequently speaking with curse words and bluntly telling other competitors she hated them. Other times she was downright likable and possibly had a history of wounds and rejection. As the show drew near to a close, with only a handful left to compete against, they had a special guest on the show—a very famous chef. The camera zoomed in on this prominent chef, and this boisterous lady competing exclaimed that she was her favorite chef of all time. Then she said if Jesus were standing here (she pointed to her left) and this famous chef was standing right next to Him, I would be like hey Jesus and run over to her!
My heart sunk in the floorboards. I couldn’t shake her words or her attitude towards others. I wondered if years later, when she watches her old self, what she would think. (As the show was recorded almost ten years ago) What if we were being recorded daily? What if we could go back a decade and see ourselves? I shudder. Has she changed in 9 years? Have we?
It’s been days since that episode, and her words still linger in my mind. Why? Because the Jesus/ Yeshua she was talking to during the show, she didn’t even know. There was no personal intimacy. This woman had an idol in her heart. The icon was a person she wanted to become like—a great chef. We can have idols in our heart that are people. Even ministers we look up to who are great chefs and can prepare wonderful spiritual dishes for us. Some of these Master Chefs have multiple culinary degrees. They know how to pair food and wine, and other items. They understand what seasonings to add to proteins and how to make delectable foods, but many of them are not aware that some of the items they proclaim to be scrumptious are not even food. They prepare sea urchins and shellfish, octopus and crab meats, creatures that were created and designed to do a specific job by the Creator of the Universe. Many of these creatures were created to cleanse the ocean and the land and were never considered food. It’s the same in the Body of Yeshua. Some who go by the title of master chefs may know Hebrew and teach His feasts days, but they are still serving uneatable meals. These meals cause fear and disunity, and often they sparkle with a false light. The goal is unity—one stick in His Hands. This woman on the cooking show was in aww of a woman and her title of master, so much so, she would rather spend time with her instead of Yeshua.
If there is anyone in the room that we would be more excited to spend time with than Yeshua Messiah, we are very sick—numb even. Have many of us forsaken our first love? We must run back to Him like the woman in Song of Songs who is heartsick searching for her Beloved.
“I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem,
If you find my beloved,
As to what you will tell him:
For I am lovesick.” 5:8.
One of the greatest things to draw me closer to the Father has been suffering. Suffering causes us to seek Him like never before. I see people at this time trying to get out of suffering. Many seem to believe they are invincible. Some church buildings remain open, and one pastor who boasted to keep packing the people in has now died of the virus. He was telling followers to stand up and prove their numbers … despite social distancing guidelines and warnings. The evangelical pastor who vowed to keep preaching unless he was “in jail or the hospital” has died of COVID-19. How many others did he harm?
Many quote verses and profess that no plague will come nigh their dwelling, but Egypt is full of diseases. Egypt is sin. We have blood in our waters and blood on our hands, but the murder rate has dropped since COVID-19. People are more afraid of a tiny virus than The Almighty One who sits on the throne. Are we?
Many so-called Great Chefs have added frogs in their bread bowls. We have boils and lice and every manner of Egypt in America and in the ‘church.’ Which is only a building, not a Body jointly fit together with Yeshua as the chief Corner Stone. He is the Greatest Chef.
Certain Chefs during this time want to entice little ones with end-time prophecy. His second coming. They have secret knowledge about leaders in the nations. They have certain secretive insight on the mark of the beast and vaccines and marshal law. They spread fear and teachings that are based on conspiracies. Some even proclaim they went to the third heavens or journeyed to hell, but humble Paul, yes, humble Sha’ul, in 1 Corinthians 12, says he isn’t even permitted to talk about what he has seen. Yet you can buy these master prophetic books from well-known evangelist and so-called super prophets and apostles, and they will give you a play by play. However, Paul says he isn’t permitted to speak of such things!
“I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago—whether in the body I do not know, or out of the body I do not know, God knows—such a man was caught up to the third heaven. 3And I know how such a man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, God knows— 4was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which a man is not permitted to speak.
Many are being misled.
“And Jesus answered and said to them, “See to it that no one misleads you. 5 “For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many. 6 “You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. 7 “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. 8 “But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.
“Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. “At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. “Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. “Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. “But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved. “This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.” (This is Jacob’s trouble).
Notice the words (see that you are not frightened) Also, notice (they will deliver you to tribulation. They will hate you and kill you).
Is this bad food? It came from the mouth of our Messiah, the Master Chef.
The woman in the cooking show had her eyes on someone who she thought prepared beautiful, tasteful food. Good food. His Word is good food. Yeshua is the Living Word. But some in the Body have become consumed with the master Chef’s and their mind-blowing knowledge. Our hearts need to be blown. If their knowledge exalts the King of glory, our hearts should be more drawn to Him and not them. If they are teaching from a pure heart, we will see Him and not them. Our hearts will be pierced to repent. A different fear will come forth from their food and teachings, a fear of Adonai and a holy awe. I know some spiritual Master Chefs and some I even call a friend. When they teach their words help heal the Body. Their words bring unity. Their words stop ignorance and fear of our big brother Judah. Their teachings help me become more obedient. Are your teachers doing that? Has He led you to some leaders to learn from? Sit down and stop eating at every truck-stop and every diner, drive-in and dive bar. Stomach aches all around.
This woman in the cooking show thought she knew Yeshua. She made a sign of the cross when she was put in a place where she could be eliminated. She said thank you Jesus when she passed and was still able to compete for the crown. She spoke those words for her own rewards and nothing to do with heavenly crowns. We are to run our race to get the crown.
There is a horse in revelation getting much attention at the moment due to its crown and corona meaning crown. It’s a white horse, and other horses follow it. These horses go together. They are not separate. One horse is like a domino effect, it starts a chain reaction. Let’s look at them.
“Then I saw when the Lamb broke one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, “Come.” 2I looked, and behold, a white horse, and he who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer.
When you see the word “come,” here it should lead one back to the Torah portion Bo, which means to come or to go. Parashat Bo (Exodus 10:1 – 13:16)
This first horse gives way for all the other horses. This is not Yeshua. These angelic riders being sent out start with destruction. This virus could easily be causing the rest of the horses to come to pass. The red horse removes peace from the earth. We are seeing that now. It causes famine. With people unable to work and the stock market dropping so low, and big food giants who have not treated the land and animals as they should, when these huge factories get the virus and close, we can see how this first white horse brings a spiral effect that ends in death.
The Second Seal—War
When He broke the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come.” 4And another, a red horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him.
The Third Seal—Famine
When He broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, “Come.” I looked, and behold, a black horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not damage the oil and the wine.”
The Fourth Seal—Death
When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come.” 8I looked, and behold, an ashen horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by the wild beasts of the earth.”
Notice that although the 4th horse is this green sickly horse, he kills with sword, famine, and pestilence and wild beasts. Wild beasts is what we are not to be acting like or eating.
Yeshua doesn’t arrive on his white horse at the beginning of the seven-year tribulation, He arrives at the end, and He looks very different. Back in Matthew 24: verses 4 through 14, we read of multiple horrific things, but those things continued to be addressed. Then we get to this verse, 29== “But immediately after the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 “And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory. 31 “And He will send forth His angels with A GREAT TRUMPET, and THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.”
Yeshua shows up on a white horse in Revelations 19. He is not the rider in Revelations 6–
“And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness, He judges and wages war. 12His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. 13He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. 14And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses. 15From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the winepress of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. 16And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” Revelation 19
Yeshua has many crowns… In my opinion, His horse is so much GREATER and in no comparison to the leader of the 4 horsemen.
But the main questions is do YOU KNOW HIM? Do we know a lot about Him and call Him Lord Adonai? Or do we know Him intimately. Adam knew his wife Chavah and she conceived.
Many people know a lot about food. Many people know Hebrew. They know words that sound like they would have knowledge and yet they cause division and fear in the Body of Yeshua.
There are a people mentioned in scripture that call Him Lord (Master), but He doesn’t know them, and by the way, before I get to the passage, if you say Lord or even Jesus, it doesn’t mean you are worshipping Zeus or that you are lost. Or to treat people who say Lord as if they have COVID-19. Yeshua Messiah is Lord! Stay away from those who spread this type of disease. My dad is 84 years old. He has done missionary work in foreign lands and served the Father the best he can. He has called Him Lord his whole life and the Father as God. He doesn’t google. He doesn’t get on Facebook. He does keep his face in His book. We need to stop following this type of leadership. Find out who your leadership or top Chef is bashing, they may be the very ones with good food.
Yeshua said, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord (Adoneinu),’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’ (Matthew 7:21-23).
I had a dream recently where me and a good friend were standing outside the hospital she works at. Veterans is a hospital for those who have served in the military. We were by a large hospital dumpster and there was a doctor and a nurse whose bodies were thrown on the top. They still had their COVID-19 mask partially on and their scrubs. I knew they were dead and I was horrified that they had been tossed in a dumpster like waste or trash. I said that’s a doctor and a nurse! She said yes, more of them are getting the virus. I said this is horrible. We must remove them from the dumpster and honor them and prepare their bodies with a proper burial. She said, “Bonnie, there is nothing we can do for them now except dose them in kerosene and light them on fire. My heart sank but when I woke up I felt the Holy Spirit nudging me to take a second look at this dream. Doctors and nurses represent the leadership of a facility that cares for the sick. We who are in leadership in the Body try and care for those who are sick or suffering. We are to bandage up their wounds and pour in the oil and wine. He seemed to be showing me how the leadership has been working and handing out medicine and becoming equipped with protection but are some wearing mask? Do some of us need lit on fire?
Many people in the Body have had no honor for the leadership. They have not sat under those He has sent to them and learned as they should. They have tried to usurp and have spoken with an evil tongue against many of Abba’s anointed, but I believe the leadership will be coming forth with no mask, no COVID, and burning like the brightness of that burning bush Moses saw. They will be baptized in the Holy Spirit and fire for this time of cleansing. They will be getting in positions and having a five-fold in place. My prayer is that all of us are purified in His Fire and unified and matured until the coming of Yeshua, the Anointed Master Chef.
