Act 9:17 And Ḥananyah went away and went into the house. And laying his hands on him he said, “Brother Sha’ul, the Master יהושע, who appeared to you on the way as you came, has sent me, so that you might see again and be filled with the Set-apart Spirit.”
Act 9:18 And immediately there fell from his eyes, as it were scales, and he received his sight. And rising up, he was immersed.
All these years; I’ve been blinded by the lies of the false teachings and doctrines and man-made traditions. I have not known the Truth for so long that I was unable to see it.
One day about a few months ago; I was on the computer surfing the internet and visiting the social network called Facebook. I have used Facebook since 2007 and I am still using it. While I was on Facebook, I was simply looking at my friends’ updates and dealing with the social network’s feature changes. I have this overwhelming general discontent of being a Christian all these years and I was growing bored and weary of it.
I have become so discontented with church that I have decided search around Facebook for any groups by the name "Messianic Believers" or "Hebrew Bible Studies" in the search box. I have found several so I read their descriptions and sent the requests to join.
So I waited a few days while I was on Facebook on another day. It was a week or so before our 18th wedding anniversary. Someone by the name Cheryl has contacted me via the Facebook’s messaging system so we have messaged each other. I was learning about their group and she is learning of my knowledge of Scriptures and where my spiritual growth was.
I am so glad that we were able to get together and she brought me to several groups at the beginning so I can catch up. Then later, Sandy Bruce posted the Scripture resources on my wall so I anc find the translation that works best for me.
As I have been doing a lot of catching up and praying for many weeks; it is as if the scales have fallen away from my spiritual eyes!!! Now I am learning the for the first time how Yahwah has brought me to do a search on Facebook for a Messianic Believers group.
So I have begun the process of Unlearning so much of the false teaching and doctrines and man-made traditions. I am being set free. I still have a way to go but I am still working on them.
Now I no longer have those spiritual scales in my eyes from being blinded by the lies of false teachings and vain traditions.
If I hadn’t decided to do a search in Facebook for any type of Messianice group; those scales would not been removed. I would have been trapped for life and I would not have made it to be with Yahshua HaMachiah in eternity.
I am thankful that the scales have been removed and now that I can see who Yahshua really is.
I am no longer be labeled as a Christian. From now on; I am a Messianic Jewish Believer in Yahshua the Messiah.
Praise Yahwah for opening my eyes to the Truth!!!!
