The Way to ONENESS with G-d is through ONENESS with others (in the Body of Mashiach).
There are too many Believers who are not Followers. Why is that? Because they profess a ONENESS with G-d while they have NO ONENESS with their brothers/sisters. They have the ‘haughty eye’, a dishonorable self-imposed elevated status that has blinded them to their great distance from The Living G-d/walking IN His Ruach HaKodesh. They forfeit and waste the very breath G-d gives them because they refuse to be ONE with others within The Body.
In human nature, it’s far easier for us to ‘love’ G-d whom we’ve NOT seen, than it is to ‘love our brother/sister’ whom we do see on the daily. Believers, we only deceive ourselves. G-d will not be mocked, however. This is NOT of the Ruach HaKodesh.
It takes a CLOSE EXAMINATION of self, and a humble, courageous, teachable spirit to ask yourself ‘Am I a simple believer or am I The Holy Spirit Filled/Fruitful Follower?.
By definition, the Believer who does not Follow Yeshua HaMashiach is actually NOT BELIEVING His Words at all.
How do we cease wasting life and begin EMBRACING LIFE? Torah.
One of the Hebrew Names for Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ) is Torat Chayim (Living Torah). The Risen Deliverer Yeshua was still teaching disciples about the Great Revelation of Himself found within the Scrolls of these Invaluable Holy Books to those Doubtful Two on the ‘Road to Emmaus’.
‘He said to them, “Foolish people! So unwilling to put your trust in everything the prophets spoke! Didn’t the Messiah have to die like this before entering His glory?” Then starting with Moses (Torah!) and all the Prophets (Nevim), he explained to them the things that can be found through the Scriptures (Tanakh) concerning Himself.’ ….. ‘This is what I meant when I was still with you and told you that everything written in the Instruction (Torah – T) of Moses, the Prophets (Nevim – N) and the Psalms (Ketuvim – K) had to be fulfilled. Then He opened their minds, so that they could understand the Scriptures (TNK=Tanakh).’ ~ Luke 24:25-27, 44-45
Proverbs 3:1 – NAS – My son, do not forget my teaching (Torah!), But let your heart keep my commandments;
Proverbs 3:1 – BHS – בְּ֭נִי תֹּורָתִ֣י אַל־תִּשְׁכָּ֑ח וּ֝מִצְוֹתַ֗י יִצֹּ֥ר לִבֶּֽךָ׃
Proverbs 3:2 – NAS – For length of days and years of life And peace they will add to you.
Proverbs 3:2 – BHS – כִּ֤י אֹ֣רֶךְ יָ֭מִים וּשְׁנֹ֣ות חַיִּ֑ים וְ֝שָׁלֹ֗ום יֹוסִ֥יפוּ לָֽךְ׃
Proverbs 3:18 – NAS – She (Torah!) is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, And happy are all who hold her fast
Proverbs 3:18 – BHS – עֵץ־חַיִּ֣ים הִ֭יא לַמַּחֲזִיקִ֣ים בָּ֑הּ וְֽתֹמְכֶ֥יהָ מְאֻשָּֽׁר׃ פ
Proverbs 4:2 – NAS – For I give you sound teaching; Do not abandon my instruction (Torah!).
Proverbs 4:2 – BHS – כִּ֤י לֶ֣קַח טֹ֭וב נָתַ֣תִּי לָכֶ֑ם תֹּֽ֝ורָתִ֗י אַֽל־תַּעֲזֹֽבוּ׃
LIGHT, LIFE, and UNITY all show up for the FIRST TIME in B’resheet 1 (Genesis 1). In other words, LIGHT, LIFE and UNITY (oneness in G-d’s Holy Spirit) are PREEMINENT.
LIGHT, LIFE and UNITY REMAIN PREEMINENT (as well as identifiable) within the lives of those whose walk is GOVERNED by the Ruach HaKodesh. Study Galatians 5 to see what the Spirit-governed LIFE looks like.
This is the SAME Ruach HaKodesh Who hovered over the waters ‘in the beginning’ and wills to bring LIGHT, LIFE and UNITY into your everyday.
Don’t waste your life. Instead, CHOOSE LIFE in the power of The Ruach HaKodesh.
Job 33:4 – NAS – “The Ruach of G-d has made me, And the breath (neshamah) of the Almighty (Shaddai) gives me life”
Job 33:4 – BHS – רֽוּחַ־אֵ֥ל עָשָׂ֑תְנִי וְנִשְׁמַ֖ת שַׁדַּ֣י תְּחַיֵּֽנִי׃
G-d’s Torah (Instruction from Genesis to Revelation) is GIVEN to us TO LOOK INTENTLY TO so that we may COMPARE our darkness to HIS LIGHT (over and over!) and ‘choose well’.
Without comparing, we are ensnaring (others and ourselves).
Choose LIFE. Choose ONENESS. LOOK INTENTLY to Torat Chayim and LIVE by G-d’s Holy Fire (Amos 5:4)!
