HAVE YOU LOST YOUR FIRST LOVE?

BY: EVANGELIST BONNIE STARSKY

HAVE YOU LOST YOUR FIRST LOVE?
THE SON OF HUMANITY HAS A HEART TO HEART TALK WITH THE CHURCH OF EPHESIANS
Revelation 2:4-5
These things saith he (Son of Humanity) that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden menorahs (candlesticks). “Nevertheless Yet I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left forsaken thy first love. So remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come quickly, and will remove shall stir thy candlestick menorah out of his place, except less thou repent.” Is God you first love? Yes _____ or No _____

What have you put before God? Money, husband, wife, children, sports, education, ect… PRAYER: We repent with the (Ephesians) congregation for forsaking their first love. “Son of Humanity” light our dim lamps (heats) with the burning fire of your love, in which you have for your beloved heavenly Father. Bestow your gift of love in all of our hearts, we repent for all of our pride, selfishness, and wickedness, make us in your image of love as is portrayed in 1 Corinthians 13. We desire your gift of love first and foremost. We stand in the gap for all the saints who have been wounded. Heal their pain, and bring them back to the loving Abba Father’s comforting arms. Father reveal your everlasting love to us again and again, ignite your candle stick of love to burn within our hearts. Bring to our remembrance your love and compassion. We love and honor you King Sovereign Yah Veh Sabaoth (the Lord of Hosts), who was, who is, and is coming. We love you and Yah Shua for your sacrificial death on the cross, which is our redemption. All glory, honor, and power

belongs to Yah Veh and His beloved Son. We also humbly repent for losing our love to help those in need, we repent for not taking care of the widows and orphans. We apply the Spotless blood of the Lamb of Elohim (God), over our sins. We must be there to help each other! Times are hard for the majority of the population, many people are jobless, which leaves them in the hopeless position of not even being able to provide for the basic needs for their families. This situation has caused some people to take their own lives by committing suicide. When this happens with a member within your own family, or with a close friend then this devastating. You will ask yourself why you did not pay closer attention. It is now time to pay closer attention to over 8 million people are now homeless in the United States. Yes, we are speaking about the homeless right here in our own back yard (country). For those who are living in their warm and cozy homes, do you have any idea what kind of life

the homeless lead? Do you ever wonder about the lives of so many children and adults who are now homeless because of the economy? Do you hear the news, and then close up your heart on how you may help? Granted we all have given a very small portion of what we have to the needy, but usually we just shove it into their hands, and swiftly walk away. And in most cases the generous person thinks it is absolutely disgusting to even touch their hand, let alone talk to them, or even take them out to get something to eat! Many people treat their beloved animals better than they treat other fellow human beings. The majority of people treat the homeless with no respect. How do you like it when people treat you with no respect? It is absolutely terrible, that people treat the less fortunate this way! In the eyes of the middle class and well-to-do, the homeless seem to be inferior beings, someone who may seem to be revolting to them. The homeless appear to be unwashed, with some wearing filthy clothes. But have you ever asked a homeless person how they got that

way? The next time you see a homeless person stop and talk with them, and they may tell you how they got this way. Try asking them some personal questions about their life. You may ask them if they have a family to provide for? Or if they have children? You may ask them when was the last time they spoke with their family? You may ask them if they would not mind telling you where they slept last night, and the night before? Or how long it has been since they have got a good nignt’s rest? Ask them when was the last time they have eaten? Ask them what they ate for the last week, you may find out that they had to search the garbage dumps for food. For a moment of time stop and listen to what they are saying, and put your self into their shoes. How do you compare one of these homeless children with your own children? What is the major difference between their children and yours? The middle class and well-to-to do child is ever so neat and clean, the homeless child is considered unattractive with their not so in style clothes.

When was the last time you gave to the homeless? Is it not better to give than to receive? Are you using your wealth for your own selfish pleasures, and not taking care of the less fortunate around you? Remember it was the poor beggar who entered the Kingdom of God, and not the prideful selfish rich man! Everyone is born equal and has the blessed privilege to become a child of the most High God; we all come into this world the same way helpless and innocent, and we will all die and shed our earthly possessions, and we all will stand before the judgment seat of the Ancient of Days, to be rewarded for our works! Have we not the same God who created all of us? Riches, power, and pride last only for a few short lived years, compared to timeless eternity. Why does mankind cling so immensely to their earthy goods? Why can’t the people who have more than enough money to provide for their own needs, give out of their surplus to the rest of their fellow human beings? Why should the homeless have to be without their basic needs, food, clothes, and shelter? Why should those who have extra money flaunt their riches, and

criticize the less fortunate people? This is a gross sin and an extreme abomination to God, which needs to be repented of. The hardness of hearts has reached the multitudes, and is every so present in the churches, which say they believe in God, but do not do what the Father has asked of them! King Sovereign Yah Veh Sabaoth (the Lord of Hosts) calls these lost hard hearted souls liars! Mankind has provoked God to anger over this subject. A gift should never be flung in anyone’s face, each and every person has the right to kindness. If we call ourselves believers then we should not be nicer to the rich person, and unpleasant to the poor person. I see so many so called believers who are not helping the less fortunate. Every day more people are becoming homeless, this is the hour of testing, what will you do to help those who have lost their homes, jobs? Love will give the coat off their own back, love gives when it sees a need, not just a short prayer.

How many times have you had the resources to help those in need, and you gave them a short prayer and then walked away? Human greatness does not lie in your wealth or your power, but in your true character and your works of providing for the less fortunate. The rich man was told to sell all of his possessions and give to the poor! Open your heart to the less fortunate, we can all give a lot more than we have been giving, even if it is an act of your kindness. Father, most gracious God we repent in tears and rending of our wicked hearts, for the sins of not loving our fellow human beings as ourselves. Father we repent of not obeying your word, to love you first with all of our heart, mind and soul, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. We come to you through the blood atonement of Yah Shua’s (Jesus) nails, stripes, crown of thorns, His full testimony of His brutal death on the cross, cleanse us and redeem us from our sinful selfish nature. We crucify our sinful ways and nail them on your cross.

You have always commissioned us to take care of the widows, and the orphans, and homeless.
