I can’t **NOT** share what PAPA Revealed to me earlier this morning (FRI 13 FEB 2015)!!!
I’m currently 53 years young and all my life I’ve been raised from a “traditional USA Christian” perspective (if there is such a thing!). Part of that perspective was the implied belief that The Ten Commandments and The Torah (first five books in The Bible) were — both collectively and individually — all about rules, rules, and more rules. They were informative and important — but…not as important as The Gospels, Paul’s writings, and The Red Letters Spoken by KING YESHUA.
In other words, the two tablets that PAPA wrote on were “all about Laws and Rules,” and whatever Moses had to say was not really relevant any more (to Christians) because The Torah was all about “Law and Performance” and we Christians were all about “Love and Grace.”
I’ve also been taught that JESUS — I call Him KING YESHUA — was “all about Love and Relationships” and wasn’t really focused on behavior. At least, not in the same way as The Torah, even though He Kept The Torah.
Additionally, I’ve been taught that He had, in essence, done-away-with-The-Law when He said that He Fulfilled The Law. (In other words, The Torah was null and void after He was on the earth.)
It was as if the two (PAPA/Old Testament and KING YESHUA/New Testament) were totally different — as if They were not even The Same GOD. I’ve even heard Christians — people I dearly love — say those very words. PAPA was Law (supposedly focused only on “outward performance”), and KING YESHUA was Love (which was supposedly focused only on “inward faith”). Although Love could be demonstrated by action, the majority of Christians I hear talking these days clearly state that actions are NOT to be required, because that would be considered “working for your Salvation.”
It’s as if all the books from The 1st Story (commonly called The Old Testament), along with The Book of James, were totally kicked into the sewage!
Anyway, there I was doing chores around the house FRI morning while listening to Hanoch Young’s teaching from March 2014 and Bob Hamp’s teaching from February 2015, and it hit me!
The Ten Commandments **ARE** all about Love and Relationships!!!!!!!
Love is action. Love is demonstrated. Love is not a “feeling.” I’ve heard that hundreds of times! You probably have, too! (Action, by the way, is a synonym for performance!)
How did this “ah-hah” moment occur? I’m so glad you asked!!
Well, during Hanoch’s teaching, he repeatedly said that Torah is action-driven and that got me to thinking-and-pondering!
Then Bob repeatedly talked about how The Scriptures say that others will know me to be a Christian (a disciple of KING YESHUA) by my love for others; in other words, my “actions” in relationships.
Which then reminded me of KING YESHUA Saying that if I love Him, then I will obey (perform) His Commandments. (Please note that He’s talking about MY love for Him — **not** His Love for me! That is a really important distinction to remember!)
So there I was thinking-and-pondering and pondering-and-thinking when it hit me! The Torah is ALL about Love and Relationships — and ultimately, Torah is about LIFE! The Torah is all about “What Is Love” and “How To Demonstrate Love” in all my Relationships! The Torah clearly describes how to Live LIFE!!!
The Torah (of which The Ten Commandments provides an “outline” for living and loving in relationships), is **not** about rules — at least, not rules that are sour and bitter tasting! The Torah is all about what KING YESHUA Says we find in Him — Life and Life More Abundantly!!!
The Torah is all about Love and Relationships the same way that PAPA IS!!! The Torah is all about LIFE the same way KING YESHUA IS!!! And in case you didn’t know, “LIFE” in Hebrew is pronounced “CHAI” (with a throaty-spit-sounding CH and a long i as in “Hi”)! And its Hebrew spelling is a Chet and a Yod (written right to left).
So…what does all this mean to me? It means that The 1st and 2nd Stories ARE ONE, after all!!! They are **NOT** to be separated!! Isn’t this stuff AWEsome?!!! WOOHOO!!!!!!!
Thank YOU for reading, Dear Readers!
And thank You, PAPA, for opening my eyes to an even deeper awareness of Your Great Love for me and for others! HalleluYAH!!!
