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!

Be Encouraged


I am sensing a need to encourage my brothers and sisters in Him. May you worship him with a clear conscience and a clean heart this Shabbat.

Love YHVH, all you his saints! YHVH preserves the faithful but abundantly repays the one who acts in pride. Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for YHVH! Psalm 31:23,24

No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you. Be strong and courageous, for you shall cause this people to inherit the land that I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go. This Book of the Torah shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for YHVH your God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:5-9

Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love. 1 Cor 16: 13,14

Be careful now, for YHVH has chosen you to build a house for the sanctuary; be strong and do it." 1 Chron 28:10
(The context of the verse is David speaking to Solomon as receives the commission to build the Temple in that time, whoever, I believe it has a prophetic message for those who are the living temples in this day as we are commissioned to build His house in our families and on this earth until He returns.)

We must not put The Anointed to the test, as some of them did and were destroyed by serpents, nor grumble, as some of them did and were destroyed by the Destroyer. Now these things happened to them as an example, but they were written down for our instruction, on whom the end of the ages has come. Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall. No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. YHVH is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry. I speak as to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say. 1 Cor 10:9-15

Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is YHVH your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you. Deut 31:6

And the word of YHVH of hosts came, saying, "Thus says YHVH of hosts: I am jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I am jealous for her with great wrath. Thus says YHVH: I have returned to Zion and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem, and Jerusalem shall be called the faithful city, and the mountain of YHVH of hosts, the holy mountain. Thus says YHVH of hosts: Old men and old women shall again sit in the streets of Jerusalem, each with staff in hand because of great age. And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in its streets. Thus says YHVH of hosts: If it is marvelous in the sight of the remnant of this people in those days, should it also be marvelous in my sight, declares YHVH of hosts? Thus says YHVH of hosts: behold, I will save my people from the east country and from the west country, and I will bring them to dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. And they shall be my people, and I will be their God, in faithfulness and in righteousness." Thus says YHVH of hosts: "Let your hands be strong, you who in these days have been hearing these words from the mouth of the prophets who were present on the day that the foundation of the house of YHVH of hosts was laid, that the temple might be built. For before those days there was no wage for man or any wage for beast, neither was there any safety from the foe for him who went out or came in, for I set every man against his neighbor. But now I will not deal with the remnant of this people as in the former days, declares YHVH of hosts. For there shall be a sowing of peace. The vine shall give its fruit, and the ground shall give its produce, and the heavens shall give their dew. And I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things. And as you have been a byword of cursing among the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so will I save you, and you shall be a blessing. Fear not, but let your hands be strong." For thus says YHVH of hosts: "As I purposed to bring disaster to you when your fathers provoked me to wrath, and I did not relent, says YHVH of hosts, so again have I purposed in these days to bring good to Jerusalem and to the house of Judah; fear not. These are the things that you shall do: Speak the truth to one another; render in your gates judgments that are true and make for peace; do not devise evil in your hearts against one another, and love no false oath, for all these things I hate, declares YHVH." And the word of YHVH of hosts came to me, saying, "Thus says YHVH of hosts: The fast of the fourth month and the fast of the fifth and the fast of the seventh and the fast of the tenth shall be to the house of Judah seasons of joy and gladness and cheerful feasts. Therefore love truth and peace. "Thus says YHVH of hosts: Peoples shall yet come, even the inhabitants of many cities. The inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, 'Let us go at once to entreat the favor of YHVH and to seek YHVH of hosts; I myself am going.' Many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek YHVH of hosts in Jerusalem and to entreat the favor of YHVH. Thus says YHVH of hosts: In those days ten men from the nations of every tongue shall take hold of the robe of a Jew, saying, 'Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.'" Zech 8

He will guard the feet of his faithful ones, but the wicked shall be cut off in darkness, for not by might shall a man prevail. 1 Sam 2:9

Chazaq Chazaq!
