Dear Troubled Friend
LOVE, Is the Foundation
I feel the Lord would have me explain something to those who obviously do not understand Yahweh. There have been some pretty rash statements made against Yahweh, and I am glad these people have shared their feelings, since obviously that is how they feel. If we do not allow others to express their true feelings, we have no way of discovering the realms from which we are communicating. However, the image many people have created of Yahweh is nothing less than that of a monster. There is no wonder that there are so many people who do not feel genuine love for Yahweh—no one would.
We are not qualified to pass judgment on Yahweh our GOD, and it is a little naive to try. Few of us hold a true image of him, but we must receive something of a true image of him before we can truly love and trust him.
Many people only see an illusion of Yahweh—created by the mind of flesh. They hold an image of an imaginary man-god who supposedly lives on planet Heaven. He thinks, feels, and has the characteristics of a very selfish and wicked taskmaster. These people have created a vindictive monster that no one should love. Some Christians have a good man-god, while they blame the devil for all the bad things!
One must understand that Yahweh is not on a natural throne somewhere in the sky with angels flying all around him. The Spirit drew these symbolic word-pictures in the scriptures to help us understand his power and glory, for Yahweh is Spirit. He is neither a ghost nor a spirit-like-thing that moves from place to place. He is not “a” Spirit; he “is” Spirit. He does not have a form or a Spirit—he “is” Spirit. Perhaps this could be more clearly understood if I say that Yahweh is a Life-force, he is energy. This Life-energy is everywhere all the time; he continuously moves upon all people. I am not saying Yahweh is in animals, stones and trees; these are his handiworks. But all of Yahweh’s creation benefits from his presence and goodness.
Though Yahweh is Spirit-entity, he sees, thinks, feels, and acts. He is Spirit. We may not understand this statement, but because the Bible tells us that Yahweh is “Love” and he is “Spirit,” we must accept these statements as reality.
Just as an artist expresses himself on a canvas with paints and a poet paints a picture with words, so our Yahweh expresses himself in various ways. These expressions help us to conceive something of his attributes. These varied expressions are only his handiwork; they are not of his essence. We also came into this world as Yahweh’s handiwork. We will not always remain in our created (terrestrial) state. Yahweh said, “Let us make man (the human that is not in the image of Yahweh) in our image, after our likeness and let them have dominion,” Genesis 1:26. He had a greater purpose for man; he did not intend to abandon man in the created form.
Yahweh truly expresses himself through his born-from-above children, but they are not his handiwork; they have become his begotten children, born of his substance. They are not always faithful to his principles, nor do they consistently manifest his likeness; nonetheless, they are what he is. His children are birthed from his substance. They are Yahweh’s heirs and are predestined to inherit his attributes, his power, and his nature, which is love. As mature sons, they will inherit his essence.
Most of us are so earthly minded, it never occurs to us that our inheritance is not made of earthly material—Yahweh gives us himself—his personality, character, and his Spirit.
Through the born-from-above experience, the created being becomes begotten—a child of Yahweh’s spoken Word and Spirit: “But as many as received him, to them gave he the power to become the sons of Yahweh, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of Yahweh,” John 1:12-13.
I am sure our translators did their best to translate the scriptures correctly, but in some of the text, they failed. Through their inability to understand the meaning of son-placing, they replaced this word and gave us the theory of “adoption.” Through the mistranslation of this one word, the doctrine of adoption was conceived. If we are born of the Spirit of Yahweh, we are not adopted— we are his birth-children. As finished products, we will please him because we will be perfect expressions of Love. We will express the invisible Creator through the outward material substance.
Man is of the created realm until he is birthed into the Spirit realm, that is, birthed into the Spirit-family. Every born-from-above Christian becomes a family member; they all have one family name, one Spirit, and the same blood; however, they become varied expressions of Love.
Through this process, Yahweh is birthing creation (mankind) into himself-creatures (James 1:18). But this has not been fully accomplished yet, that is with the exception of Yasha.
Yahweh is Spirit, Love, and Life; man is in the process of being birthed into his likeness. Yahweh has crowned man, the mature man, as ruler over the works of his hands.
David said, “When I consider thy heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have ordained; What is man, that you are mindful of him? and the son of man, that you visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and has crowned him with glory and honor. You made him to have dominion over the works of your hands; You have put all things under his feet: All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; the fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passes through the paths of the seas. O Yahweh our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth!” Psalm 8:3-9. Please compare with Hebrews 2:8-9.
Yahweh is Spirit; man is material. The new creation is both Spirit and substance. Man will reveal, or become, a materialization of the Spirit of Yahweh—a materialization of Love. He must become Love expressed, or an expression of Love. Spirit-love is above the flesh realm. It is not a created thing; it is a living life force, or energy force. It cannot be created; it has always existed. Unregenerate man is a created thing. He feels the influence of Spirit-love but has not experienced it.
Created man receives the Life-force through his attraction to Love, but he must also welcome its principles, that is, not only is he to be loved, but he must become love and manifest it (turn the other cheek, love your enemies, etc.). Our goal is not just yielding to the law of Love to be loved, but rather to become the substance of Love.
Man has been given dominion, but he cannot experience the blessedness of his throne rights while he is yet in death. But he will someday accept his redemption from death. “The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord (master) from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly,” 1 Corinthians 15:47-48.
The first man (creation) was a living soul; the last, or finished man (Yasha), the man who is in Yahweh’s image, was a life-giving Spirit. After Adam’s rejection of the Spirit and Word of Life, he entered into the death realm. “For Yahweh created all things, that they might have their being: and the generations of the world were healthful; and there is no poison of destruction in them, nor the kingdom of death upon the earth: For righteousness is immortal: But ungodly men with their works and words called it to them: for when they thought to have it their friend, they consumed to naught, and made a covenant with it, because they are worthy to take part with it,” Wisdom of Solomon 1:14-16. (See also Isaiah 28:15)
By sending his Spirit into the flesh realm, Yahweh began the birthing of a “himself” creation; a creation that is to become an expression of Love. This may not seem possible to the carnal mind, but the flesh does not present a difficulty that Yahweh cannot handle—remember, he is responsible for the existence of flesh, or carnality.
Think; if Yahweh had preprogrammed mankind to function by instinct, we would have been nothing more than a robot, a machine. Mankind would not have had the ability or initiative to become Yahweh’s birth-children. Man would not be able to express Yahweh’s genuine love, because he would be functioning much as a preprogrammed robot; the response would be a product of the programmer. Man would have become a highly sophisticated machine without the capacity to show genuine emotions or to be able to exercise his will. Some people feel they are supposed to be a robot for Yahweh. This is because they fear to function individually. Most people do not want to take responsibility for the consequences of their own actions. They want a scapegoat.
To accomplish Yahweh’s purpose in man, it was necessary for the creature to be born with the intelligence to receive and compute information, but man’s computer was not preprogrammed. Man must become the expression of Yahweh through the Spirit and data he receives. The Spirit and the Word that influences and revitalizes man must program him. In many ways, this is similar to the parent-child relationship that we experience. We must present our principles to our children in the most appealing way possible, but not without some rebuke and correction. We hope they will become attracted to our principles and accept them.
The new creation family is something like a natural family; however, we are dealing with Spirit, not earth substance. Remember, the Word is Spirit, and this is how we are begotten children of Yahweh. We are birthed through the transforming power of the anointed Word that we accept.
Yahweh speaks and that word, when received through Spirit, reproduces itself. Love cannot dominate or force itself upon mankind. Let me modify this statement. Yahweh is Love. Love cannot intimidate, dominate, incriminate, or interrogate in its effort to be accepted. Love flows out. If our goodwill is a forced action or a pretended action that comes from fear or law, it is not genuine and cannot be called Spirit Love; it is self feathering its nest again. If we do not feel love for our enemies, we should yield to the law of Love by faith; that is, we should force ourselves to act as if we do while we earnestly seek to become filled with the Spirit, which is Love.
Love must express the essence of itself in reality before it can become the true expression of Yahweh. This action cannot be given as a sacrifice. Where a sacrifice is involved, an opposing element is still present. It would not be a sacrifice to give your dinner away if you were not hungry. You would be doing what you wanted to do, but if you were hungry, it would be a sacrifice to give your dinner to someone else. In this case, your flesh would desire to do the opposite, but you would be willing to crucify flesh to allow Love to be expressed—your appetite would become a sacrifice.
Let us pretend you were in a very stressful situation where you had worked very hard throughout the day without having had lunch. The work had put a demand on your energy, and you were very hungry. You decide to prepare food to satisfy your hunger, but you discover you have only enough food in the refrigerator to make one meal. After having prepared yourself a delicious plate of your liking, you sit down to satisfy your enormous appetite, but before you can fork the first luscious bite to your mouth, the doorbell rings. You open the door and a stranger confronts you. He tells you he has not eaten a bite in four days. He is trembling from weakness and collapses at your feet. You would give this stranger your dinner, but it would be a sacrifice, a crucifixion of your flesh, for there would be an opposing element present that the law of Love would have to overcome, namely, your appetite.
Now, let us pretend the trembling starving figure at the door is your own child, so famished he can hardly stand. You would give him your dinner without hesitation, without taking note of your sacrifice. There would be no opposing force to overpower Love. In this case, you would not have sacrificed your dinner. Love would flow and reap a heartfelt satisfaction; there would be no hindering opposition to Love.
These examples explain the difference in manifesting Love because it is a law and manifesting Love because it is of your substance. With the stranger, you would have acted upon the law of Love. But with your child, you would have manifested the Love you already had. For in reality, you would not have had a deep affection for the stranger, but the principle of Love would have overpowered and constrained your flesh and demanded a sacrifice be made so that Love might be made manifest.
Our base nature is lawless; however, through the influence of Love, we are made to bow to its laws and become aware of the substance of our GOD. But our exalted goal is to allow Love to have free course and flow unhindered. Until this goal is reached, we must continue to sacrifice the will of flesh.
If Love demands a sacrifice before it can manifest itself, there is still an opposing factor. This factor, when present, demands warfare, while Spirit-love is not always free to express itself through the vessel. Our base nature is thoroughly self-motivated and opposes those who are striving to fulfill the law of Love. As long as the will of Yahweh must be done through personal sacrifice, we are not operating in the higher realm of heavenly Love; we are still operating under the “law” of Love, or the “influence” of Love.
Heavenly Love, which is greater than the law of Love, must be made manifest in the world so that it may become available to mankind. Before this is possible, we must feel it, accept it, and become animated by it. Man must be exposed to Light and Truth before he is able to accept and appropriate it. A genuine expression of Love is the only force that can penetrate and change the heart of man. Until this change is realized, mankind will continue to kill, rob, molest, and cheat one another.
This wonderful Love, Truth, Light, and Life must express itself. It is a principle that works through cause and effect. If I say to Yahweh, “I want to manifest your principles to the world and become an expression of you,” I will then begin to run into problems, because I am not, as yet, able to manifest Love without making flesh sacrifices. The problem here is the flesh I must sacrifice is my own. But I cannot overcome selfhood and carnality within me unless I begin to feed hungry strangers (so to speak). When flesh is called upon to do that, it inconveniences it. Also remember, we are the Lord’s handiwork; he is the one responsible for the regulating of the heat and the shaping of the vessel. He is the Creator. The Potter is not going to stop work on the vessel just because he loves the gold too much to mold it into a precious and useful vessel. Neither is he going to hog-tie and gag his blind and captive creation in order to stop the process on a vessel that is crying out, “Oh, please, Father, do not leave me unfinished!” We need our enemies to help us crucify our first nature. We are too blind to crucify our own flesh.
Our confrontation with our enemies is as a mirror that helps us see our true reflection; this enables us to find the flaws in our own character. Our enemies need us also. We are to become a mirror to reflect their image so they may see their own reflection.
If someone with a wrathful spirit attacks a person with a like spirit, wrath will strengthen wrath and both will feel justified. But if someone attacks a person with a meek and non-wrathful spirit, he feels neither justification nor satisfaction; his wrathful spirit has not been strengthened, and whether he admits it or not, he has seen a bad image of himself reflected in his mirror. He has caught a glimpse of his real self. He has seen a glimmer of truth. Thus the judgment, or condemnation, has become manifested.
Yasha said, “If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin,” John 15:22. By reacting in a higher principle, he revealed (exposed) their lack.
Now when I begin to practice the higher principle that Yasha manifested, some people (my enemies, some friends, maybe family, too) will say, “She is a fake and I will prove it.” Then they attack me. That is what Love wanted them to do. He created them with a hidden desire to look for him, and by attacking Christians (vessels of Love); they are subconsciously searching for reality. They want to find Spirit-substance. They are seeking answers; if there is a God, they want to find him, but they do not know where to look for him.
Love wants his creation—the blind and lost—to find him. He desires to manifest himself to his blind and destitute creation. Love wants to live in us and express himself through us. Love accepts and yearns to reach the unlovely and the outcast.
Our trials do more than help our enemies find truth. We sometimes think because of religious concepts that Yahweh makes us suffer to punish us, or when we do well, we are doing something for Yahweh. In reality, our obedience is a rewarding experience in the Spirit realm and so very necessary.
Starlight is beneficial to mankind in the night only; however, they continue to shine brightly every moment of the day—their light has become swallowed up into the sun’s radiant glow. It is the same with Love—Love cannot be seen unless there is an opportunity for it to manifest itself.
If I use the principle of Love with hopes of producing results in the Spirit realm, I cannot use the works of the flesh to defend myself—I must use the sword of the Spirit. The sword of the Spirit only destroys the flesh, the son of perdition, or the first nature of man (mine, not my enemy’s) and will not harm the spiritual man.
If I use the works of the flesh to war with the flesh, I am warring exactly like those poor unenlightened souls that are bound in death; there is no difference. If I use the sword of the Spirit, the adversary will attack. To the natural understanding, it will appear that I am being defeated; when, in reality, I have been given the opportunity and divine privilege of flowing out into the regions of darkness around me—at the same time I am crucifying my flesh. If I do it with a joyful spirit, it becomes a sweet smelling sacrifice unto the Savior because he is seeing a spirit that he is able to fellowship in his born-from-above child.
Christians are advancing toward the mark of being filled with Love. It is great when we have an opportunity to become himself-creatures; for we are destined to manifest Yahweh.
I hope to be ruling and shining in the next age instead of being under a more severe form of judgment. It appears to me that these present fires are sufficient; I do not desire more fuel to be added. I just pray, “Lord, let me quietly lay myself down on the altar and get my flesh out of the way.”
If we desire to receive and become a partaker of this Life-force, we will have to accept Yahweh willfully by accepting his principles. Yahweh will not force us to accept him. He can’t because it would require him (Love) to change into something other than Love; and if Love should change in its form, it would not be Love.
If we choose to become partakers of this Energy, we will be moving toward becoming a finished product, a manifestation, a materialization, of Yahweh, which is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon mankind.
One could challenge my statement concerning Yahweh, the Love-force, and say, “From where I’m standing, Yahweh looks pretty mean.” But, we must remember, the Spirit (Love) is working to destroy flesh-works and to convert the creature from flesh to Spirit. “The works of flesh are manifest which are these; adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulation, wrath, strife, sedition, heresies, envying, murders, drunkenness, reveling, and such like. . . ,” Galatians 5:19-21.
Think of the various manifestations of these flesh-works and then connect them to yourself. Though you sometimes manifest the works of the flesh, there is a “you” inside that is not in agreement with your flesh-works. So Yahweh is not out to destroy “you,” but he seeks to release you, the righteous person inside of you that is being held captive as a slave to the flesh.
Now some might ask, “What profit is the flesh? Why did Yahweh create it if it is my enemy?” If you are talking about the spirit that controls the unregenerate man, it could be described similar to the placenta. It is very vital in our early stage of growth; it is the means of our survival in our limited stage. The new man has not been fully developed to come out of Egypt, or darkness. He is not ready to experience a metamorphosis. After we have processed out of the womb of flesh, we do not need it around anymore than we needed to hang on to the placenta after we were birthed out of it.
If we could pass a law against all carnality (while 98% of the world are yet unenlightened, not having experienced Spirit-birth from above), what would they do in their blindness? They cannot fellowship with the Life-spirit in Yahweh’s children. They cannot hear the truth nor react to it—for they are not in the realm of the Holy Spirit.
Visualize what it would be like if you were to take all of the imaginations away from a very small child, and then try to force him to do and experience the things you and other adults around him enjoy. He cannot understand your level of maturity. He can only watch mature people and try to understand and mimic them. This develops his mind and character, but most of the time, he is acting out of his own imagination from his little boy-spirit.
Paul said, “When I was a child I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child, but when I became a man I put away those childish things,” 1 Corinthians 13:11.
The Life-force, in created man, is destined to have control over the works of Yahweh’s hands, but only as it operates through the new creation—Spirit and matter.
Those who choose to use the principle of the Holy Spirit cannot revert back and use the principles of the world at will. They must live among men and be willing to allow Love to express itself with unrestrained explicitness. They must learn to trust Love (Yahweh) without reservation. If I go about protecting self, I will manifest selfishness, not Love.
In Genesis 2:3, we are told that Yahweh “created and made.” If you will closely examine the meaning of this phrase, you will find this to say, “Yahweh chose to advance man into his image.” If Yahweh tried to create a man in his image, it would not be anything more than a work of his hands. This man must be birthed from Yahweh’s Spirit into his image. How can he do this? The earthly man cannot reproduce in Spirit realm; he is not spiritually minded. He can only see truth as it is manifested to him. He cannot accept what he does not see; therefore, it cannot be forced upon him. Yasha came as an expression and manifestation of Yahweh (Love). Yasha did not abuse or harm anyone; he healed, restored, and nourished them, even with the coldest rejection and heaviest persecution.
When Yahweh put his Spirit in man, the war between flesh and Love began. But the God-man (man in the image of Love, Life, and Righteousness) must become fruitful, multiply, and replenish the earth, subdue it and have dominion while Yahweh’s Spirit is birthing him into his image through this process of overcoming flesh (Gen. 1:27-28).
Yahweh comes into man’s heart through the spoken or manifested word, but man crucifies the word. That is, when Yahweh’s word is lowered into flesh, it becomes distorted, warped, and misunderstood. It bears the image of the beast realm and very little of the image of Yahweh. The finished product must express Yahweh’s exact image. It must develop until it will outwardly express the attributes (fruit) of unseen Spirit.
In Isaiah 55:8-9, Yahweh said, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith Yahweh. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
If I choose to manifest Love, I must submit to the law of Love and allow it to rise up and conquer my flesh. That is the only way Love can ever be seen in me. At first, flesh is strong because it is our total being. We think, feel, judge, and react according to flesh. That is what we are until Spirit-truth enters into our hearts. If Spirit-truth is not present to influence a person, all he has within him to function in is flesh. Flesh is a created thing and is blind to the realm of Love, so one must judge by the spirit of the flesh.
The unenlightened, being in leadership, condemns and hates love, because love demands a sacrifice be made in order for it to manifest itself and take dominion over substance. This is why we must present our bodies a living sacrifice. Flesh is, in reality, the servant. Yahweh’s love-children are the heirs. They are the ones being served.
Many people are convinced that the suffering of Christians somehow pleases the Lord. It is true that Christians must suffer, but their suffering does not bring joy to the heart of the Father. If we hold this concept, we also see Yahweh as a man. If we could understand that Yahweh is not a man, but an omnipresent Spirit of love, we would know that it would be impossible for him to rejoice in our suffering. You may question this statement on the ground that he, as the Creator, is the first cause of all things. I am forced to agree that he is, but in the same measure, you must agree that we are responsible for all the pain our birth children suffer, because we are responsible for birthing them into this depraved realm of conflict.
If we are to develop our intellect, we must be given an initiative before we have the knowledge to make perfect choices. Imperfect choices often produce evil consequences that are linked with suffering. And one very important reason why Christians suffer is the will of the flesh opposes Love and resists its authority to rule over it. This causes all kinds of turmoil in the mind of the believer. Another reason why Christians suffer is they sometimes forget to use the sword of the Spirit; they wander over on the enemy’s territory and arouse the sleeping dogs, and they attack.
But as I said before, the real legitimate reason Love wishes to reveal himself to those in darkness is because he loves them, also. So those that Yahweh is expressing his love through are his sources of expression. Before allowing any hostility to surface, remember that we have not always been in the light. There was, back there in our darkness, someone expressing Love to us through the sacrifice of his or her flesh.
Flesh is opposed to Love, because Love will crucify it. But when Love is despised, the only thing it can manifest is Love because that is all it is. Flesh can manifest all sorts of ugly fleshly emotions and engage in all sorts of unlawful warfare, but Love can only act out of Love.
Someone might ask, “How does Love conquer flesh if it cannot defend itself or engage in physical warfare?” Love is energy, a Life-force. It will swallow up death (carnal mind) in victory. The more I love, the more living energy I am radiating, and as more energy is radiated, the force upon flesh (mine and other people’s) becomes intensified.
The forces I radiate will energize and strengthen the Love-child in others, just as death-forces radiate and strengthen the carnality in those who yield to it.
The stronger the death-force is, the greater the need is for releasing Love-energy. The more energy I receive, the stronger I will become and the brighter my light will shine. Withstanding heavy persecution without giving flesh a chance to react, that is, without allowing a change in principle, is like having your love-energy’s battery charged. If we experience a spirit-change by reverting back to fleshly attributes, we lose ground and pay the consequences.
I do not yield to Life-energy because of a reward in the flesh realm; there is not a reward forthcoming in that realm. I yield to Yahweh’s Life-force because I believe, accept, and support his principles. I do my best to refrain from yielding to the flesh, for I loath, despise, and reject the works of the flesh. They are selfish, mean, ugly, and unfair. I neither approve nor support them, and I will not spend my energy as their slave.
There is to be a time ahead when Love’s energy will be manifested through man, controlling the works of Yahweh’s hands (Psalm 8: and Hebrews 2:4-10). When all things are under the influence of Love, man will be seated on the throne with Yasha Christ. “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance, against such there is no law,” Galatians 5:22-23 and Psalm 8:6.
One must understand the meaning of the fruit of the Spirit and the works of the flesh before he can understand Love. For the most part, Love’s principles are unknown in the world; therefore, it is our responsibility as Spirit-born children to introduce these principles to those in our part of the earth. We must also allow the Word in us to be tried. If we allow our revelation to be tried and it weathers the storm, we have confidence (faith) in its energy.
When I am obedient to the law of Love, I consent to Yahweh’s principles even if keeping the law is a sacrifice to me. I am inviting Love to take control, or have dominion, yet Love still demands a sacrifice from me sometimes.
In this message, I have placed strong emphasis on Love and have said very little about righteousness; however, I did not overlook it. Righteousness, peace, and joy are the substance of Yahweh’s Kingdom (Rom. 14:17). We can measure our own righteousness by our spiritual love, and we can measure our spiritual love by the love we feel for our enemies. If the love emotion we feel cannot expand itself to include our enemy, it is not Spirit-born love.
With the exception of Yasha, Paul has to be one of the world’s greatest men, but listen to what he had to say about the law of Love. “If then, I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law (law of the Spirit of Life, see Rom. 7:14-25; 8:1) that it is good. Now it is no more I that do it, but sin (carnality, death) that dwells in me. For I know that in me, that is in my flesh, dwells no good thing: for the will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not,” Romans 7:16-18. He then asked how he would be delivered from the sin-man and answers himself, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Yasha, who walk not after the flesh, but after the spirit. For the law (principles) of the Spirit of Life in Yasha Christ has made me free from the law (principles) of sin and death,” Romans 8:1-2.
Someday, when pure love becomes my reality in all situations and at all times, I will be in the image of Love, and I will not be required to sacrifice my flesh. I will be able to flow in love unhindered.
Love cannot say, “Now that you have accepted me, I will pave your street and destroy anything that hinders you.” Love can do nothing but love. Love requires me to sacrifice for it to manifest itself in its full glory. If everyone around me was a manifestation of Love, I could love with all ease, but it is more difficult at this time because I still dwell in the realm of need and lack.
Yahweh’s Spirit-energy has influenced man as much as he could be influenced in his realm of darkness, because he must progress out of his darkness as he is able to see flickers of light. Man must become the substance of light.
At first, all we see in our darkness is the struggle between good and evil and it confuses us. We always feel Love’s energy, but we cannot accept Yahweh’s principles and at the same time appease the flesh, because Love will be rejected and flesh will get its way.
In the day in which we live, very few Christians accept the law of the Spirit of Love. Christ is the only one, as far as it has been revealed to mankind, that has been swallowed up into the fullness of the Life-force. He was willing to sacrifice his flesh completely. He became a life-giving-energy, or the Word of Life. That is what he was before he was manifested in the flesh.
Christians are beginning to understand the principle of Love more now than they have at any time in the past. In the nineteenth century, Christians appeared to be more dedicated to their concept, but their limited vision gave them more liberty in the flesh. It allowed Christians to murder other Christians for not agreeing with their concept and yet feel justified in their own eyes. We know that murder is not Love’s light, or Life-energy. Love does not destroy its enemies.
I know it sounds as if I am not looking at some of the judgments of the past (Sodom, Gomorrah, Canaan, Israel, etc.). Someone might remind me that Yahweh has destroyed these people and cities. Again I say, Judgment is on flesh, while the Spirit-child is under the protection of the power from which it is being birthed. We must remember there is to be a restoration of all (not all “things,” the word “things” was added by the translators).
According to Peter all flesh, with the exception of Noah and his family of eight souls, was destroyed off the earth, yet twenty-six hundred years later, Yasha went into their prison and preached to them; therefore, nothing more than their outward flesh was destroyed in the flood. They were still retained in Yahweh’s memory and sheltered. 1 Pet 3:19-20: “By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.”
Listen to what the Spirit revealed in Romans 8:1-25 (the Holy Spirit must reveal this word to you). “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Yasha, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Yasha has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, Yahweh sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against Yahweh: for it is not subject to the law of Yahweh, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please Yahweh. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of Yahweh dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his (nothing in him is of Love). And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised up Yasha from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwells in you. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if you live after the flesh, you shall die: but if you through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, you shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of Yahweh, they are the sons of Yahweh. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but you have received the Spirit of adoption (son-placing), whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of Yahweh: And if children, then heirs; heirs of Yahweh, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.
“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waits for the manifestation of the sons of Yahweh. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him (Yahweh) who has subjected the same in hope, because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of Yahweh. For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the first-fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption (to be son-placed), to wit, the redemption of our body. For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man sees, why does he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.”
I’m thankful that I am called into this ministry; it gives me a purpose for being. Our time of molding, or suffering, is like a blink of the eye when compared to the length of the age-lasting reign with Yasha in his Kingdom.
Maybe some have gone through extremely hard places and suffered more than others; I know it seems that way. But look out there in the world; is there someone that is not suffering to some degree? Man’s whole system is unfair, and it is time for Yahweh’s sons to become manifest. I am trying to do something about that. I know it sounds ridiculous for me (a “nobody” in the eyes of the world) to say I can do anything that counts for anything toward hastening the Kingdom age. However, a “nobody” birthed Christ, and another “nobody” left the land of Urr and claimed the promise. A “nobody” sheep herder led Israel out of slavery of Egypt and gave them the law, and another “nobody” sheep herder became a king over Israel and wrote the Psalms. The book of Psalms has become the most famous piece of literature the world has ever known. Also, there were the stinky, old uneducated fishermen that changed the course of history and turned the world upside down.
Remember we are Yahweh’s Love transmitters sending love vibrations out into the world. If you do not live to manifest Love’s energy, you will have missed your whole purpose for being on earth.
Sometimes our attitude toward Yahweh forces us to suffer, and our sacrifices are to the benefit and strength of our flesh, not to the edifying of our inner man. Many cannot see themselves in that image, but Yahweh is Love.
Many people demand Yahweh to protect and preserve flesh or they will not serve him. They really do not trust Yahweh because they see him in the evil around them; he knows that, and loves them in spite of it.
I, too, am convinced that the suffering of this present time is not worthy to be compared with the glory that will be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creation is waiting for the manifestation of the Sons of Yahweh. For the creation was made subject to this death realm, not by choice, but by a Creator that has put them here for a short time that they might share his magnificent glory forever. For every created being will be delivered from this realm of death and share the glory of being Yahweh’s birth-children. I know creation is coming through the darkness of death and is in travail now to be birthed out of it. Not only are they, but ourselves also who have received the Spirit of the Firstborn Son are groaning and waiting to come into full sonship, which is the redemption of our body (Rom. 8:15-23).
