Discovering the Love of G-D

Written by Leslie Clymer. Posted in Testimonies

But if you search for the LORD your G-D, you will find Him, if only you seek Him with all your heart and soul. - Deuteronomy 4:29

"Exalt the Lord with me: let us extol His name together!"¹

Rejoice unto the LORD Our G-D. I have a new life because… HaMashiach YESHUA (The Messiah Jesus), the LAMB Of G-D lives in me. Once my lips could not even speak the name of Jesus, but now I know him as Yeshua My Redeemer and Praise His Name! Each day is full of its’ crisis, yet I am so different for, through Yeshua, I am happy in spite of circumstances! Yes, He is teaching me patience, changing my wrong attitudes and showing me freedom through the Word of G-D.

 

I grew up learning about G-D. He has always been real to me. I’ve heard His voice leading me, yet I never truly felt worthy of His love. He said, "Love your neighbor as yourself²... but how could I? You see I didn’t love myself! It appeared that I had everything I could want - a loving family, nice home, friends, a car and stylish clothes, but these things didn’t satisfy the thirsting in my soul. I am a member of G-D’s "Chosen People," yet I didn’t understand why I had been chosen. What was so special about me? "What is man that You have been mindful of him."³ Little did I know then how special G-D’s love for me (and you) is!

It is not by works and good deeds nor by being perfect in the law that we are saved⁴ - it is through the undeserved favor of G-D in HaMashiach Yeshua! Now I know that G-D knew me in my mothers womb, directed that I be raised in a loving Jewish home, then grafted back into His natural olive tree, as part of the remnant of Israel.

My thirsting for something more, believe it or not, brought this Jewish girl from Oklahoma to...

Trust in Yeshua HaMashiach,
the Messiah of Israel and the whole world.

Through Yeshua I have come to know, how deep G-D’s love for us is. G-D desires that all be written in The Book of Life, so He stretched out His Righteous Right Arm of Redemption to us - Yeshua, to die in our place. But how could someone’s death give me life? We traded lives, Yeshua and I, when I laid upon Him my sins and He shed His blood for me!⁵

G-D still requires the shedding of blood for the Atonement of our sins. - Leviticus 17:11

This is what Yeshua, The Lamb of G-D, did for us - He Atoned for our sins, past, present and future. Once and for all!⁶ Our sins are now washed away, forgiven, forgotten by G-D.⁷ Now, I know for certain that...

I am written in the Book of Life⁸

...because I have made Teshuvah (turned back to G-D & repented for my sins) and acknowledged that Messiah died for me.⁹ Trusting in G-D, I was Mikvahed (immersed) as an outward sign of this cleansing that G-D has done in my life. Now, I daily repent for my wrongs and remain in fellowship with Him through prayer and the reading of His word. Oh thank you LORD G-D ALMIGHTY for loving me just as I am, and for providing My Redeemer to lift me up and show me the way to a new beginning - through You I can do all things, for You strengthen me! I’d blown it - walking on my own, trying to straighten my life out my way. Now, as I continue to surrender more and more of my life to You, life is rich in a whole new way! I’m full of joy and love rejoicing before You, my G-D!

G-D is Alive and loves me! I’m trusting in the promises of G-D, not depending on my feelings, situations or things to grant me happiness... and I’m still Jewish!

...and living according to the Jewish Calendar & Holy Days, while worshiping my Messiah, the Messianic Jewish way!

Yes, you can still be Jewish and believe in Messiah Yeshua!

My friends, I wish for you this happiness that I’ve found - the love of G-D through Messiah Yeshua! Come celebrate with me, for Yeshua Mishechanu (Jesus Our Messiah) - the LAMB OF G-D is alive and forever intercedes for you and me. He is the ARM OF THE LORD - THE ZEROAH ADONAI. He can be your LAMB, your ATONEMENT this day, if you but ask!

SHALOM ALEICHEM, the Peace of G-D Be With You!
