Men and women have erected the wrong boundaries: THEIR OWN.
Whose Boundaries have you ERECTED, RESPECTED & PROTECTED? Do you know? Are you aware? Are they G-D’s? Or are they yours? If yours, you get the opposite effect of what you’re hoping for. Within the Torah, we find G-D’s Framework for properly erecting and building HIS Boundaries for us as a whole – THAT WE MAY BECOME WHOLE – with the purpose of BEAUTIFUL GROWTH THAT ONLY COMES THROUGH UNITY (expense of self).
You’ll need to read that again…
Here’s a test, if the boundaries only protect YOU, you are ALONE (‘bad’ בַּד in Hebrew – see Genesis 2:18). IF, however, those boundaries you’ve carefully constructed AND maintained are so LIFE-GIVING THAT THEY ARE PROTECTING ALL THOSE WITHIN – ALL SAFE AND CAREFULLY NURTURED IN THEIR GROWING, then those are THE DIVINE BOUNDARIES OF THE KING MESSIAH.
You meet yourself and DISCOVER FREEDOM/UNBINDING only in the ACT of letting yourself be known to those you love. It is in the VERY ACT of deconstructing your walls that you find out who you are – who they are – and you learn the DIVINE PRINCIPLE OF ‘BECOMING ONE’. This is our Divine Inheritance.
We are foolish to live our lives having not learned THE PRACTICE OF THE PERPETUAL SACRIFICING OF SELF in order to experience what the soul longs for: FREEDOM FROM SELF-IMPOSED BONDAGE/ISOLATION through erecting, respecting and protecting WRONG BOUNDARIES (our own boundaries) and NOT THOSE OF THE KING OF GLORY!
The soul will busy itself with all kinds of things to keep from BEING KNOWN – and then wonder why it ceases to find ‘happiness’. HAPPINESS/BLESSEDNESS IS BOUND UP IN ONENESS – ALWAYS. Or another way to say it…
HAPPINESS/BLESSEDNESS ARE FOUND WITHIN G-D’S BOUNDARIES OF ONENESS!
That’s THE Divine Revelation.
If you aren’t able to answer the question ‘WHAT IS THE HOLY SPIRIT SPEAKING TO YOU/TEACHING YOU about at this time’, then you’ve likely not met yourself. The FRICTION OF CONFUSION is the result of not knowing yourself – not understanding who you are, how you operate, for what purpose you are here.
FACING YOURSELF IS WHOLLY UNCOMFORTABLE…AND VITALLY NECESSARY FOR LIFE ABUNDANT ON THE NARROW WAY OF BLESSING.
If you’ve not met with and questioned yourself, you can’t move past where you are by REFLECTING UPON THE MESSIAH’S QUESTION TO YOU ‘AYEKA?’ (Gen. 3:9)
Start there! We cannot even begin to ERECT G-D’S LIFE-GIVING BOUNDARIES until we have first answered the self-investigating Inquiry WHERE ARE YOU?
THINGS FROM THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN BEGIN TO POUR OUT UPON US IF WE ARE JUST WILLING TO LISTEN…(shama ‘hear and obey’)
May we as G-D’s People quit busying ourselves with SOUL-DEPRIVING TECHNIQUES and enter into BUILDING HIS KINGDOM BY HIS SPIRIT’S BOUNDARIES ‘ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN’!
