True humility is caring about what God thinks, not getting stuck on the “woe is me; I am such a worm” mindset. Humility, mercy and obedience are best buddies.
“I’m scared, Father. Help me.” Many times, the most effective prayer is a simple one straight from the heart.
There is a difference between nonbelievers and unbelievers. Nonbelievers either do not want Yah to exist or worship the creation in order to manipulate it. Unbelievers either do not perceive anything beyond the physical or whatever cannot be quantified consistently. Quit using logic and reason to convert these people! Only His supernatural authority and power can grab their hearts.
Truth is not what you know, which doctrines are correct, or what you do. Truth is the living, active Word of God, Yahshua, sent to each of us through the Holy Spirit. Therefore, true fellowship is when the Spirit of Christ flows through a group of believers and they recognize that moment of unity under His direction. This cannot be coerced or scheduled by us.
Some believe the gifts of the Holy Spirit are no more because they believe the perfect (mature) is here (1 Corinthians 13:9-12). How can anyone call this divided, carnal, soulish, powerless mess mature is beyond me. The perfect Paul wrote about is Christ Himself. Jesus prayed that the world will know His Ecclesia by their unity in spirit (John 17:20-23). His Father, not any work of man, will fulfill this.
The most insidious form of deception: covering a heresy with another while successfully refuting the former.
Jesus returning to the Father was a matter of logistics and keeping things simple for our little pea-brains. He also wanted each of us to be as He was in full spiritual power and authority. Notice how much better the disciples operated after He left than when He was with them. They needed Christ within them in order to be complete in His image.
Did you know Jonah’s prophetic judgment against Nineveh was delay about a century (Nahum 2:6-11)? This demonstrates two items: Yah does not waste words (Psalm 119:89, Isaiah 40:8, Isaiah 45:23, Isaiah 46:10, Isaiah 55:11, Matthew 5:18, Matthew 24:35, Mark 13:31, Luke 21:33) and a prophetic picture of mercy and grace given to the Gentiles.
Do not dwell of the phrase “the chosen ones” in reference to physical Judah and Benjamin. Did the Word not call you unto Him (Matthew 20:16, Matthew 22:14)? Were you not grafted into the olive tree (Israel) [Romans 11:17-24]? Are you not a spiritual Jew (Romans 2:28-29)? Did you not see the passages announcing Jew and Gentile forming “one new man” (Ephesians 2:14-18, Galatians 6:15)? All of these the Word taught to keep believers on the same level—cells of His Body (Galatians 3:28, 1 Peter 2:9).
The pattern of nature (or circle of life) is a teaching tool of how Yah operates. Like the Tanahk and rituals, it is a shadow of the good things to come (the new heaven and earth – the new spiritual and physical realms).
