They That Love Yahweh
The Word teaches us that our life is so controlled by Yahweh’s Spirit that all things work together for our good. But there’s a catch here that could be overlooked. This promise is not given to the rebels and God-haters. This promise is given to those who “love” Yahweh. This entails loving his principles, which includes turning the other cheek (Matt. 3:39), giving to those who ask of us, and to those who would borrow from us (Matt. 5:39), loving our enemies, blessing those who curse us, doing good to those who hate us, praying for those who despiteful use and persecute us. It is also being willing to go two miles when we have only been compelled to go one.
If the above scriptures describe your willful actions when confronted by your enemies and those who disregard and belittle you, then you can truthfully step up and claim the promise.
But, if we only claim to love Yahweh while in reality we hate and reject his Spirit, we cannot claim the promises that were given to those who love Yahweh. Yahweh will not force his nature on us. The works of the flesh will automatically return unto us in the nature they went out from us—flesh will produce fruits of the flesh. If we love Yahweh and obey his word, our works are of a higher realm and we will be blessed by the fruit they produce in our life.
Someone might say, “I do not use that principle, but Yahweh still loves me, because he uses me in his ministry. Isn’t this a sign that he condones my actions?”
No, this is not a sign that Yahweh condones sin. Have you not read 2 Timothy 2:20? “But in a great house there are not only vessels of, gold and silver, but also of wood and earth; and some to honor and some to dishonor. If a man therefore purge himself of these (profane and vain babblings and sin), he shall be a vessel unto honor, sanctified and meet for the Master’s use.”
Being a servant in the house of the Lord does not qualify us as a son. The son inherits Yahweh’s nature (principle). If we are not operating in his principle or being led by his Spirit, it is because we are servants and not sons. “Yasha answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever commits sin is the servant of sin, and the servant abides not in the house for ever: but the son abides ever, If the Son therefore shall make you free (from sin) ye shall be free indeed (in reality, or in actions).” John 8: 34-36. “For as many as are led by the Spirit of Yahweh, they are the sons of Yahweh,” Romans 8:14. “…Yahweh is love,” 1 John 4:8.
