Welcome to Home Shalom!

Welcome to Home Shalom and Shalom Farm. We pray your visit here be blessed. We are learning to walk in the Ways (Torah) of our Father YHWH and follow Y'shua, His Messiah until He returns to "set things straight". We call it a "Messi-Life". Our walk is neither tidy nor perfect, but it is filled with passion, devotion and desire to serve our King. We are learning to be humble servants, and to be good stewards of the things that He has entrusted to us: His Word, our marriage, our children, our family, our community, our health, and our farm. Hitch your horse and stay a while--our door is always open!

Another World

We have learned so much in this past you as we have truly taken full responsibility for understanding the Scriptures. We were "called out" (ecclesia) of the the place we were as the Father wanted to draw us nearer to Himself through the wisdom of His precious Scriptures. This has lead to an even richer intimacy with the Holy Spirit (Ruach Ha Kodesh) as He guides us through a gloriously complex and deep book of love letters that teaches us about YHVH, the one we serve and our place in His plan. In this process He has broken of doctrines of man that we didn't even know existed, let alone were something we were carrying and spreading to others! It has been humbling and edifying in the ways only YHVH can do as He transforms us from the inside out turning us into something that He can use. It is such and an amazing place to reside...in His shalom...I am eager and thirsty for the next lesson, the next revelation the next Divine Appointment, the next instruction...but at the same time, if I died today....I would be fully satisfied, blessed beyond measure. I have already received more in the way of salvation, intimacy, restoration, understanding and healing than I ever could have imagined..... Walking in full appreciation and thankfulness. It seems like a contradiction in the world's understanding. How can one be fully content and satisfied, yet hunger for more at the same time? That is the nature of His Living Water, of YHVH's Spirit.

In the tangible flesh...everything has an end. Even the good things must end. In other words, you can have too much of "a good thing". The sun can not shine continually, we need night. We may love to swim or fish or work or fellowship, etc., but it must come to an end. Your physical body would need something else after time, like sleep or food. But even those things must end. Perpetual eating, perpetual sleep, perpetual exercise, etc. must end. To continue them without ceasing would cause us destruction. These things are good, but temporary/temporal things that must be done in turn with other things.

However, in the Spirit things are eternal. We can not have too much of His goodness.....It is perfect. We can never have too much Shalom, too much guidance, too much deliverance, too much incite into who He is, too much instruction, too much refining, too much intimacy/prayer, too much trust/faith, too much love.....This is a "different world". We need to break free of this physical mindset of things trapped in this physical world with these physical boundaries. There is so much more to our Elohim, there is so much more to us, since we were created in His image and are being trained as His bride to reside with Him for eternity. When He transforms us and sheds our trappings, we get hold of this reality, we become equipped to live radically for our King. We have have the faith to do those amazing things that Yahshua did. Like Him, we become true servants of The Most High. We become able to set our temporal fears aside to do the things which He has called us to do. Be that, serving in the impoverished streets of a third world country, being martyred in the town square, selling all we have to follow Him or TRULY being a light right where He has put us, effecting everyone we come in contact with by BEING in Him and spreading His light right where you are. (I think that is the greatest challenge of them all!)

What ever part of the body you may be, what ever your assignment may be. If we do all we do to the glory of YHVH with Him as the center of it, ordering our steps, living a life or worship, His name will be magnified through all the earth!

Unlike the things of this world - In HIM, we can be full and overflowing yet thirst for more at the same time. Yahshua came to show us how to live, how to BE, how to walk in the precepts of the Scriptures (Torah). How to be a set- apart people unto Him, serving Him and shining His light into the dark places of this world. Halleluyah that He teaches us how to live a life of worship pleasing to Him. When all is lost, all is gained! I pray I never trade this place of YHVH's shalom for the temporal world again! I pray He never stops shaping and molding me. I pray I never get too comfortable or prideful in the riches He has given me. I pray that fear, laziness, or compromise never take hold of us turning this precious and powerful flow of Living Water into a stagnant pool of stench. I pray the same for all of you who have ears to hear! Amen.
