YaHuWaH wants to stress this concept in these latter days. I found this article on the Latter Days Ministries website and it was the perfect word for today.!
The Valley of Achor for a Door of Hope
Hanging By A Line of Scarlet Thread
“Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee.” Zechariah 9:12
Have you ever felt that the burdens you carry are too heavy for you to bear? That God was not hearing your prayers or responding to your petitions? That you were just overwhelmed or alone in your situation? Such things caused me to seek God for a renewal of His hope in me and a better understanding of how to hold on to it.
The Scriptures are full of references to God’s love, His longsuffering, and His mercy; where His arm is outstretched to save. The Book of Hosea is one example of this. The word “Hosea” literally means salvation.
God had instructed the prophet Hosea to marry a harlot so that he would understand first-hand how God felt about Israel’s idolatry. He could have just given Hosea the words to proclaim, but God is more practical than that. He often places us in tough situations to give us a personal testimony that can transform his words from being mere recitations to being spoken from the heart by the power of His Spirit. It is the difference between talking about a God whom you believe can do anything versus telling of a God whom you know has brought you through everything. If we never have a time of testing, then we will never have a testimony or a personal revelation of God’s delivering power of which to speak. This is how we grow from faith to faith, as we go on to walk with God and see His deliverance in various aspects of our lives.
Although an unfaithful wife must have been a painful burden to carry, this is what God did with Hosea. As a result, the Book of Hosea tells the beauty of how the love of God can take an idolatrous harlot and make of her a pure Bride. In speaking of the blessings God would bestow on Israel when she turned back to Him, Hosea says in part:
“And I will give her her vineyards from thence, and the valley of Achor for a door of hope: and she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt. And it shall be at that day, saith the LORD, that thou shalt call me Ishi; and shalt call me no more Baali.” Hosea 2:15-16
Sometimes, you read things in Scripture that just make you go, “Huh?” This was one such passage for me. It sounds like such a beautiful promise, yet as I looked more closely, it presented some questions. Why is the valley of Achor a “door of hope”?
trouble, disturbance; the valley of trouble where Achan and his family were stoned
The valley of Achor was a large, fruitful and pleasant valley near Jericho, on the very entrance into the land of Canaan.
The first time we hear of it in Scripture is not a happy time. God was giving the city of Jericho into the hands of Israel, but had instructed them not to take of the accursed things in the city. Yet Achan (which means troubler in Hebrew) did just that and brought a curse upon all of Israel. When found out, God led Joshua to do the following:
“And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor.
And Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? The LORD shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones. And they raised over him a great heap of stones unto this day. So the LORD turned from the fierceness of his anger. Wherefore the name of that place was called, The valley of Achor, unto this day.” Joshua 7:24- 26
And so I asked the Lord, “Why is this valley “a door of hope”? Where is the hope in this? Why is this the door through which we must enter to receive God’s blessings?”
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” I John 2:15
The valley of Achor is associated with Israel’s release from the world: both their captivity to it (outward bondage of Egypt in Hosea 2) and their love for the things in it (inward bondage of Achan in Joshua 7). The valley of Achor represents our deliverance. It is the “door of hope” that we – like Christ – can overcome the world and all that is in it, so that we may enter into the promises of the Father!
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out…Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” John 10:1-3, 7-9
Jesus Christ is the door; He is leading us out…out from the bondage of the world. He is our hope in that He is our Deliverer (Hebrews 6:17-20; I Timothy 1:1). He is the means by which we are freed from enslavement to the world, and thereby from the god who rules it (II Corinthians 4:4).
“These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
Just as Israel went through this valley before they could enter into the Promised Land, so must we experience this deliverance in order to walk in the new covenant promises of God: a resurrected life.
As Hosea says above, the valley of Achor is the door of hope through which we know God, not only as our Lord (Baali), but as our Husband (Ishi). Just as in a marriage relationship, we are brought into intimate communion with Him as His Bride and become one with Him. Such is our hope; it is not of this world and neither can it be taken away by this world.
a cord; a hope or expectation
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end [hope].” Jeremiah 29:11
We may have circled in the Wilderness of Sin for what seemed like an eternity as God dealt with our idolatry and taught our hands to war, but there comes a time when we have been prepared to enter into the promises. There comes a time when we come through the Valley of Achor as we are crucified to the world – and it to us – leaving behind the dead body of the old man (the troubler), so that we can truly move on in the promise of the power of new life in Christ. This is the beauty of the cross (of which the valley of Achor is a type).
When Jesus was on the cross, God wasn’t sitting in Heaven scratching His head trying to figure out what to do. Not one thing happened to Jesus that was not part of God’s plan. When we yield our lives to the Father’s hands, we also have this comfort. We can know that – no matter what we go through – God is working out His plan for our deliverance and for our good!
“Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts. Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.” Ezekiel 37:11-12
The death of the cross may seem like agony, it may feel like God has forsaken us…but He has not. Don’t focus on what you are going through but where God is taking you. It is even the joy of what lay ahead after the cross which gave Jesus the strength to endure it, and that same hope will also give us strength (Hebrews 12:2). Jesus has come to set the captives free and whom the Son sets free is free indeed. God is a Deliverer, and He is delivering us! He is bringing us into His promises of new life, which requires the death of the old Adamic nature.
Sometimes it may feel as if you are hanging by a thread – but then again, sometimes that thread is all you need; for a three-fold cord is not easily broken (Ecclesiastes 4:12b). It is this same cord, this same hope, which saved the harlot Rahab and her family.
In preparing to take the city of Jericho, Israel sent a few men to spy out the land. They were taken in and given shelter by the harlot Rahab, who also helped them to escape their pursuers from Jericho. In return, the men promised to save her and her family if she obeyed their instructions:
“Behold, when we come into the land, thou shalt bind this line of scarlet thread in the window which thou didst let us down by: and thou shalt bring thy father, and thy mother, and thy brethren, and all thy father’s household, home unto thee…
And she said, According unto your words, so be it. And she sent them away, and they departed: and she bound the scarlet line in the window…
And Joshua saved Rahab the harlot alive, and her father’s household, and all that she had; and she dwelleth in Israel even unto this day; because she hid the messengers, which Joshua sent to spy out Jericho.” Joshua 2:18, 21; 6:25
The word “line” in the above text is the same as the word translated “hope” in Hosea describing the Valley of Achor. We are saved by hope (Romans 8:24)!
Rahab’s hope allowed her to be transformed from a harlot to a woman of faith, even becoming one of the ancestors of Jesus Christ (Matthew 1:5). As we saw in Hosea, God’s love is able to transform even those with the heart of a harlot into pure brides for Christ. There is a journey that God is taking every Christian through; molding us into a Bride without spot or blemish. This is the power of God’s salvation.
Hold on to the promise…hold on to the hope…hold on to the blood-stained, three-fold cord which is an anchor to our souls and binds us to Christ, making us His own. The valley of Achor is a door of hope for it is the path to our deliverance.
“I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” Psalms 27:13-14
Postscript> Of course there are some problems here with the terminology being used. Namely: Jesus Christ, Cross, God, Lord, etc.. But you get the truth and gist behind the story…It’s all a learning curve..Some are just a little farther along the path..
It ‘s a very relevant and timely message for all of us who are being delivered and brought out of Egypt…

Buyer beware! Your sense of reality is going to go down the toilet!
You’ll begin to see how far the rabbit hole goes!!
Well, there’s been a lot of talk about asteroids, comets and the like here lately with some predicting that this fall could be the big splash. Now it is going to happen here in our lifetime -don’t get me wrong- but not this year. We still have a bunch of other stuff to go yet, before the 6th seal gets opened. We have the other three horseman to deal with- namely, the Dalai Lama, Angelina Jolie, and royal Baby George and his Pale Horse clan.( Prince Charles, Will I am, and Harry). Pope Francis is of course the False Prophet- being neither a Prophet or a Pope but rather an actor (Jonathan Pryce).
I think we need to be more concerned about the usurping of American Sovereignty and the infiltration of illegal immigrants into the country by design to take the country down to a poverty state. That and the fake Psy Op shootings and choreographed made for TV riots in places like Ferguson, MO to stir the pot and instigate police brutality and Marshall Law.
I for one have been busy moving these past two weeks. YaHuWaH has told me it is time to get off the coastlines. It will not be safe to be in any coastal areas here in the next 5 years. You need to plan to move in land and to higher ground. When those tsunamis hit it will wipe out the whole eastern seaboard and Florida will be under water as will some other low lying nations such as India. Hence I’m packing up my shit and I’m moving out…
Only you can decide what is right for you and your family. Let the Ruach Ha’Kodesh give you her wisdom and discernment about this matter. You don’t realize how hard it is to give up your stuff until you start packing it all up. I don’t know how I managed to confiscate so much crap. What a bunch of baggage. No wonder YaHushuWaH said what he did about possessions. These ministers that are preaching prosperity gospels are in direct opposition to what Yah taught about worldly possessions. All’s it does is bind you firmly into the matrix system which we are not to be a part of if we love of our Creator. YaHushuWaH went so far as to tell his followers not to even take a coat or any money (script) with you!
Instead of worrying about “incoming” NEO’s, asteroids, comets, UFO’s,aliens, fallen angels, etc., (which will be of EXTREME importance here in the next few years) it’s time to get “going” and get out of dodge…Get to a safe zone…
Head for the Hills!
May Day , May Day… Houston we have a problem!
Well, we’ve pretty much wrapped up the White Horseman now (Obama) as he is now on the outs and winding down. The recent earthquake in Nepal, has now ushered in the next series that will begin involving INDIA and CHINA, with TIBET being in the middle. We said the Red Horseman would be none other than the Dalai Lama. (See my prior post about The Red Horseman). Nepal, as we can see, sits in between these two superpowers also and is located on a continental fault. This is the beginning of woes and earthquakes in divers places mentioned in the book of Revelation. Oh, there have been lots of earthquakes all along, but they will be ramping up now in intensity in this area and also in other areas of the world, as the plates are sliding now due to pole shift. Magnitudes that will be off the charts!
The 14th Dalai Lamai will be celebrating his 80th birthday this year and is scheduled to speak in Anaheim and Irvine California over July 5th-7th. He is a Buddhist, Marxist leader from TIBET. Tibet is a real sore spot for China. Anything this guy does pisses off China. Anything he does pisses off YaHuWaH also, mind you.. He could bring a nice California Earthquake with him…He’s definitely part of the NWO one world religion gang. He and Obama are both COMMUNISTS.
The RED HORSEMAN brings WAR. He is also disguised as a person of Peace, but on the inside he is radical in his Buddhist Communist beliefs. Both he and Obama share the deceptive quality of having won the Noble PEACE PRIZE. What a joke! Things will start to ramp up here in the US as well with this “humble” con artist stirring the pot here. California has a bunch of wack jobs as it is, and all’s they need is one more to tip the pot out there. (LITERALLY).
YaHuWaH is so sick of this shit. His patience is running out with the idolatry in this country and the world at large.
(GRAVEN IMAGES are an abomination to Him).
“San Andreas”, is also due out in the movies. Hollywood star, Dwayne Johnson, has no idea how instrumental he will become when the REAL DEAL goes down in California. The big one could be right around the corner after this shill the Dalai Lama comes to town. Hold onto your hat, Dwayne!!
Your ROCK, Yahushwah Ha’ Mashiach (The ROCK of all ages)
will keep you on solid ROCK when California gets torn in two.
Hey, Dwayne… They don’t call you the ROCK for nothing!!
4/21/15 Woe unto them that call evil good and good evil, that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter- Isaiah 5:20
This lying bastard is a professional actor and a very BAD ONE at that. He has been arrested in the past for domestic abuse towards Ella and the children and recently child porn has been found on his computer by Hampsteadresearch.uk.
The media is busy rewriting history as they always do…This woman interviewing him must be another witch that’s involved up to her ass.The whole true story which the children presented in the beginning, has been totally obliterated and replaced with this new upside down Satanic version. And Judge Pauffley that goes for your Judgement as well:
“Woe to them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight”. Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him.” (and her- from Gabriel and Alisa in this case) Isaiah 5: 21,23
The children told the TRUTH from the beginning. This man is a pathological LIAR.
(CNN)Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of Bishop Robert Finn, who remained on the job for years after becoming the highest-ranking U.S. Catholic official convicted in connection with the church’s long-running sex abuse scandal, the Vatican announced Tuesday.
Finn, who led the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, Missouri, was found guilty in 2012 of failure to report suspected child abuse.
The case was tried by a judge instead of by jury because prosecutors wanted to protect the young victims’ anonymity.
Finn was convicted of one count but not a misdemeanor charge he’d also faced. He was put on two years’ probation but was not forced to spend time in jail or pay a fine, according to the Jackson County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. Two charges against his diocese were dropped.
At the time of his conviction, Finn said, according to CNN affiliate KCTV: “I truly regret and am sorry for the hurt these events have caused.”
Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said the conviction and penalty, which included starting a $10,000 fund for sexual abuse counseling and mandatory training for church officials on how to report abuse, would have positive ramifications.
“We can be assured now that if an allegation of child abuse comes to the attention of the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, there will be no hesitation to report it immediately to the proper authorities,” Baker said.
Prosecutors: Diocese didn’t tell police about child porn for months
The case against Finn revolved around his diocese’s dealings with Shawn Ratigan, an Independence, Missouri, priest who pleaded guilty in August 2012 to five child pornography charges.
Church officials found disturbing images on Ratigan’s computer but didn’t notify police until nearly five months later, prosecutors said.
In those interceding months, the priest kept on working.
And Finn kept his job as bishop, even after his 2012 conviction. The official website of the Catholic diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph still listed him as its bishop Tuesday morning.
Cardinal Sean O’Malley, who took over the abuse-shaken Boston archdiocese and has become one of the Pope’s point men in the United States, has acknowledged the inconsistency that someone who wouldn’t be allowed to teach Sunday school was still running an American diocese.
“It’s a question that the Holy See needs to address urgently,” O’Malley said in a “60 Minutes” interview in November. “There’s a recognition of that … from Pope Francis.”
Candida Moss — a professor at Notre Dame, a Catholic university in Indiana — said it “doesn’t look very urgent” that a decision came down only now, nearly three years after the conviction and five months after O’Malley’s comments. Several factors may have played a role in the delay, including views from lawyers or power players at the Vatican, who may be reluctant to cast blame at high-level officials who don’t report allegations quickly enough to government authorities.
But the timing of the announcement may make sense given that it comes weeks after Francis came under fire for the installation of a new bishop in Chile, Juan Barros, despite protesters’ claims he was complicit in sexual abuse cases there.
“It kind of shook Francis’ reputation,” said Moss. “Having this resignation and putting right one of the more visible injustices on this, especially in the U.S., I think this is a typical Francis way to reinstall confidence.”
Watchdog group: ‘A good step,’ but more needed
Now that the case has been addressed, the Kansas City-St. Joseph diocese has a new leader: Kansas Archbishop Joseph Naumann.
Under the Pope’s directive, Naumann will be the Kansas City diocese’s apostolic administrator, in addition to his regular responsibilities in Kansas, until a permanent bishop is appointed, according to an announcement on the diocese’s website.
“I pray that the coming weeks and months will be a time of grace and healing for the Diocese,” Naumann said in an open letter to parishioners. “All of us, who are privileged to serve in leadership for the Church, do so for only a season. It is not our Church, but Christ’s Church.”
Moss, the Notre Dame professor, predicted that the shuffling at the western Missouri diocese will be “very well received,” though some may question why it took so long.
“It’s not just that it’s late,” Moss said, “but it’s that Francis could have been more explicit.”
To that point, the co-director of BishopAccountability.org asked for more elaboration than the Vatican’s one-line announcement that Francis accepted the resignation “in accordance with … Canon Law.”
Anne Doyle, from the watchdog group that documents the Catholic church’s abuse crisis, called Finn’s removal “a good step but just the beginning.”
“The pope must show that this decision represents a meaningful shift in papal practice — that it signals a new era in bishop accountability,” Doyle said. “… What no pope has done to date is publicly confirm that he removed a culpable bishop because of his failure to make children’s safety his first priority. We urge Pope Francis to issue such a statement immediately.”
PS>>>> Like Francis is going to do anything!!He is one of the biggest liars out there!
We have already identified him as stage actor Jonathan Pryce in a previous post.
I want to back track now and tie in to why Ha Satan hates and abuses children and promotes pedophilia in Satanic cults such as the Hampstead Pedophile ring we have been discussing. It all ties in you see, when you realize that Satan hates humanity and wants to utterly DESTROY mankind. Ritually abusing and eating children is a desecration of YaHuWaH’s creation. He wants his own race to dominate here on planet Earth and it does in fact do so. That is why the Elite are the Elite. They belong to Satan and are his seed. For the most part they are UN redeemable. Not everybody is salvageable. Any of these elitist pedophiles that have SOLD THEIR SOUL to the devil have given Satan free reign to possess them. They belong to him.
As for the Sodomy rape aspect employed by these cults, it is a more traumatic method of rape because it renders the victim more subordinate and helpless. The brain chemicals released in the act also tends to attach the victim to the perpetrator more strongly and promotes an intense trauma bond. Along with the concurrent physical abuse, it serves to emasculate young males and internalize extreme anger. This serves a purpose for the cult and has also worked in civilizations of times past to foster better warriors and soldiers. Victims can and do vent their internalized rage on the battlefield. Rome was known for raping boys for this reason prior to enlisting them in their army, and Muslim extremist groups engage in the same practice today. It promotes cult loyalty along with all the other methods on intimidation employed to keep the members silent, subdued and complicent.
You might ask “how can these parents do this to their own children?” Maybe because they aren’t their own children. Did ya ever think of that? Oh they raised them perhaps, but they did not biologically birth them. Most of these witches can’t have kids. They are two fucked up themselves internally from sexual abuse that they can’t conceive children. They hate children pretty much. That’s how these woman can rape and murder them. Gabriel and Alisa said the women were the worst of the bunch. Of course it’s totally not natural, but because they aren’t totally human anymore and they are possessed and/or genetically misconstrued, they are capable of perpetrating such atrocities.
Har Meggedon we discussed will be a cyberwarfare between the politically correct SIN tolerant masses and the Elect of YaHuWaH. We discussed how the internet, Google, The CLOUD, horses, hooks and swords are all mentioned in the bible and how these are all CODE WORDS for Cyberwarfare. Sexual SINS are and will continue to be a pivital point here I might ad. It’s an affront against YaHuWah’s design for the Human Family and Marriage Covenant with Him our Creator. The whole Homosexual & Race War Agendas are tools being used to rev things up in society as are the privacy invasions, identity & property theft, and other socially engineered issues that are being propagated. That and the biological disruptions such as GMO, chem trails, Cancer and other plagues, the Fukashima Nuclear and Gulf Oil Spill, and Haarp Weather Warfare, etc.. make for a nasty world platform to stir the pot and get everybody pissed off about something, let alone kill you.
Can’t you see they are blatantly engineering your demise as a species? It’s pretty disgusting. It’s getting pretty obvious. They want us Humans DEAD. CERN could be the final straw. Who knows where they are gonna go with that monster? These Hybrids sure as hell don’t care what happens. They have been lied too as well. They have been promised eternal life also with their computer implanted chips mind you…
Satan, their daddy, you see is the slickest WILLIE of them all.
Ricky Dearman’s big white WILLIE hasn’t got anything on Lucifer’s, Gabriel.
Come on Folks, Lets call these bastards out. It’s time to get right with God and get on the RIGHT side.
You LEFTIST> LEFT PATH > WITCHES are gonna get LEFT all right… YaHuWaH’s not playing…
Your days are numbered…
Save the kids…
