Trusting and Relying

The Greek word ‘pisteo’ is said to mean belief, but does the English word ‘belief’ really translate the intent of pisteo?

Young’s rather translates it as “to trust and rely on”

To trust and rely on is a much stronger form, and it is perhaps the most difficult of all the doctrines put forth in our relationship with Yah.

To many Christians, all that they have to do is ‘believe’ and all things are added unto them, this is incomplete, for to have all things added we must seek first the Kingdom of Yah; that place where Yah rules….

To trust and rely on Yah, we must stop doing the things of Adam and wait for Yah to provide the resources we need to proceed along His way.

When we leave the pigsty to follow the Way back to the Father’s house, we are still covered in the slime of Adam’s pigs.  We tend to think Adam rather than Yah, we still trust and rely on Adam’s ways not Yah’s ways, we still believe that god helps those who help themselves.

As the slime dries out, it falls off, assisted by Yah’s servants who meet us from afar.   If we can be humble and listen and learn from these servants we will progress, but if we stick close to Adam we will make little progress.   Adam says we are sons of Yah if we ‘believe’ but the servants tell us that we too must be servants, like themselves, and trust and rely on the Master.

If we cannot convert Adamic ‘belief’ into trust and reliance on Yah, we will not reach the end of the Way and enter the Father’s gates.   In the garden of the Father’s palace, all conforms to the will and righteousness of the Father, it is his domain.   We cannot bring Adam in with us.

Rooftops and Rowboats

In the last 2 years fear has been used as a weapon against us.

Yah tells us that we should “fear not” because He is in control not the politicians or the technocrats.   But because we tend to live according to Adam’s world and not according to Yah’s Creation, we easily get bogged down in tradition and ritual.

This planet is a spiritual place which ‘thinks’ it is physical, people, including believers, think that “god helps those who help themselves”, I keep hearing the saga of the man stranded on a rooftop waiting for God to rescue him from a flood.    People who tell this story understand very little, either about Yah or about Those called by His ‘name’ (description).

There is a point to everything Yah says and does, and the guy on the roof being ‘super spiritual’ is not a practical picture.   Yah does things which are impossible, the guy on the roof wants Yah to do the mundane and at his behest, but the story itself is a mockery of a real working spiritual relationship with Yah, the man of God would part the waters a’ la Moses and walk to safety with dry feet.

We have to learn not to judge Yah by the standards of Adam’s creation, but to be humble before Yah and be prepared to do things his way, Yah does not need our ‘help’ but is very happy to have us serve.   His ways our not our ways, and we must be prepared to step aside and be the servant and not the master.    Then when we can be trusted to do things His way, then he can call us to sonship, to be his representative with His spiritual authority.

Understanding Salvation

It took me many years to even begin to understand the old testament Tanach idea of salvation, an idea obscured in translation from the Hebrew and Greek.

Salvation, the state of being saved, is a fundamental idea from the times of the patriarchs, and to even approach it we must understand what happened in the Garden of Eden.

Put simply, Adam lost his salvation, his eternal life with Yah.  Adam’s denial of wrong doing; accusing Yah and the woman of his own sin and culpability thereof (the woman confessed her culpability and thus retained salvation even though still subject to physical death).

Adam was no longer acceptable to reside with Yah, he no longer considered himself a ‘servant’ but considered himself a ‘god’ knowing good and bad from his own opinion and godship and no longer subject to Yah’s Good and Yah’s Bad.   He, Adam, was in rebellion, Yah’s Way was no longer his way, and he was thrown out of Eden; he no longer had ‘salvation’, the right to spend rternal life with Yah.

We are born into Adam’s world; the world outside of Eden and its tree of (eternal) life with Yah, so we need to seek our salvation anew.

Salvation crops up throughout the scriptures, it is a constant theme and is by no means restricted to the new Testament and is by no means dependant on or exclusive to being ‘born again’ in the Christian sense.

Psalm 119 v 41 relates Salvation to keeping Torah – doing what Yah says as opposed to what men say.

‘Salvation’ is Yah’s repair mechanism of Adam’s condemnation of all his descendants, without exceptions, for death came into the world through Adam and his arrogance.

Mankind was made of dust and the breath (spirit) of Yah, but the spirit of Yah ceased to function in Adam because he chose his own godship over service to Yah.   This act disqualifies all of us born of Adam from domicile with Yah, Yah and our own ‘godship’ cannot co-exist in the same space.   However if we choose to do things Yah’s Way, the Way of Torah, instead of Adam’s way, the way of sin and death, then the gates of Eden are once more open to us and we can dwell in the house of Yah forever…..

Yahushua (Jesus) was the Way (Torah) made flesh and dwelling amongst us…

Paul was a ‘follower of the Way’ the Way of Yah rather than the way of Adam.

In tune with Eden

Eden is a place where Yah and man dwelt together before man became a ‘physical’ being having his own knowledge of good and bad.

Adam was thrown out of Eden, but that does not mean he cannot re-enter.   But to re-enter he must be humble enough to confess the deceit (the same as the woman did).

We are born into Adam’s world and are totally immersed in Adam’s physical, and Adam’s SPIRITUAL worlds as defined by Adams knowledge of good and bad.

As we walk the Way back to Yah, we deal with Adam’s physical deficit; the mud and slime from the pigsty falls away as we come to understand the need to conform to Yah’s rules and behaviours, not man’s.

But what about the things of the Spiritual, that part of our relationship with Yah that is intangible to our senses.   Our spiritual too is dominated by Adam’s creation,  our spiritual ‘think’ is dominated by Adam’s knowledge.   In the same way we become physical ‘followers of the Way’ so too must we become spiritual followers of the way, whilst we might be physical ‘sergeants’ we can at the same time be spiritual ‘privates’ because we fail to submit our spiritual side to Yah.

We may not even understand that our spiritual  side even exists, or that it too is badly tainted by the mud and slime from the pigsty and must be cleansed.

Our role is to be containers for the spiritual outflow from Yah, our ‘cups’ must run over, spreading Yah’s elixir to all those in our reach, but that elixir must be uncontaminated by our spiritual malaise, we must be humble in spirit, knowing that we can taint the flow from Eden by adding our own ‘Adam’ to it.

The Creator’s Spirit Created All Things, we can participate in that by being a conduit of Yah’s Spirit, but only if we understand that if it is tainted by our own spiritual knowledge of good and bad, it will cease to be effective.

We should be able to stand in Adam’s creation as a chalice of light, glowing with the Creator’s Spirit within us.   It is not easy…..

Is What Man Thinks is Good the Same as What Yah Thinks?

Is what man thinks is good the same as what Yah thinks is good?

This is a very important question, perhaps, for each of us, the difference between eternal life and eternal death.

To get to ‘heaven’ we must be compatible with the heavenly environment, but if we cannot understand the difference between what mankind defines as ‘good’ and what Yah defines as GOOD then we have a big Big Big problem of compatibility with Yah’s CREATION and thus ‘heaven’.

To get to ‘heaven’ we must be Yah compatible, if we love Yahovah we do things His way not Adam’s way – we keep Torah the Moses way not the Rabbinical way or the Roman way.   We seek first the Kingdom of Yah and His Righteous.

It is our own responsibility to seek, to question and to live according to what Yah tells us, not according to the opinions of religious leaders; when we come before Yah, we will not have Rabbi Menahem or Pastor Bob to hold our hand, so if you elevate Rabbi Menahem or Pastor Bob to dominance in your life you had better make sure they are right because Yah will not accept any ifs or buts….

We have to understand that, at Mount Horeb (Sinai). the Elders of the Children of Israel rejected a personal relationship with Yah, preferring to place Moses as a moderator.   This was highly problematic, it meant that none of those Elders would or could see the promised land.   And they did not.

If we are to ‘see’ our promised land, we must take responsibility for our own relationship with Yah, we must seek to see what He defines as GOOD, and what He defines as EVIL   We are born into Adam’s creation and see things through Adam’s knowledge of good and evil, in a land where murdering babies is acceptable, “my body, my choice” sounds acceptable to Adam, but what does Yah think about it?

Our guide is His Torah and His Tanach, and those passages of the ‘New’ Testament that can be fitted into the Tanachic context.   No the Torah was not “nailed to the cross”, the Greek word ‘dogma’ in this context refers to (man’s) opinions (as opposed to Yah’s).

If you want to get to ‘heaven’ YOU must learn to do things Yah’s Way, not Adam’s, Menachem’s or Bob’s.

Body Soul and Spirit

We are made of two components, the ‘earth’ (dust) and Yah’s breath – the Spirit and the place where these two overlap is called the soul.

Our soul can be dominated by the earth, that is the Adam, or the spirit, the Yah in us, and depending upon which one is dominant, then so we are what Yah sees we are.

When we are born, Adam (the dust) is totally dominant.   As we grow up and mature, so we have the opportunity to seek the Way of Yah, if we decide to seek Yah, and His truth, so the balance of our soul shifts towards the spiritual, it shifts towards the Yah in us.

If however, we choose to believe that in the beginning, Yah did not Create, then it is the dust (death) that is in control.    The dust has no Torah, no ten commandments, it only has the desires of the flesh, if you watch a baby or a toddler, it only knows its own needs, it is totally selfish and unrelenting.   Project that behaviour into adulthood and you have the obsessive behaviour which is now all too familiar to us.

It is not that the dust is corrupt, it is just the ‘selfish gene’ which is the starting point of new birth.   If we are born into a Yah inspired household, so our ‘soulical’ balance slowly shifts towards Yah as we learn and absorb from those with whom we are intimate.

At some stage in our lives we become able to make our own decisions; do we believe that we evolved and are just a super intelligent animal, or do we believe we are the Tov Mehod of Yah’s Creation.

If the former, then we live a selfish life in the Adamic world, if the latter, then we live a life close to the Creator and His Creation, still within the Adamic world, but with a supernatural swirl around us protecting us from the intrusions of the serpent.

The serpent is intimately bound to the dust, the Adam in us has no protection from it.

Take the current Covid 19 crisis, I have a choice, take the vaccine and rely on mankind’s best endeavours, surrounded as it is by misinformation and confusion, or submit to Yah’s spirit and know that Tov Mehod means perfect.

The above are the extreme cases, and most of us fall somewhere in the middle, the case for atheism, evolution and hedonism is very strong, this is called temptation.   The spiritual call is less well defined, using Torah as a guide, we have to follow a pathway which leads to the TRUTH that is Yah’s Creation, but first we have to leave the pigsty, the mud (liquid dust) and the filth (the selfishness).

We stagger onto the pathway, still covered in the mud and slime, but as we walk towards Yah, we are met from afar by his servants.   His secants who help us remove the filth from our bodies and garments so by the time we get to the father’s gates we are cleansed; Yah’s spirit is active in us….

Sin and Sinners

Many regard ‘sin’ as being ‘naughty’ and contravening the ‘rules’ of their society, Yah is much more straightforward, sin is falling short of His standards, in effect disobeying the Abrahamic Torah.

When mankind (Adam) uses his ‘knowledge of good and bad’ to replace Yah’s Knowledge of good and Bad, he sets a standard of behaviour which he can flex his own torah (knowledge of good and bad) to justify.   But in the end he will bump up against Yah’s Creation founded upon Yah’s Knowledge. His sin – using his own knowledge of good and bad – will be exposed

If he is ‘unlucky’ (willful), that will be before the Great White Throne where Yah will require him to receive judgement against His Knowledge and Torah with Satan as his accuser.   If he acknowledges the Law of the Spirit of Life, the woman’s legacy, then there will be no condemnation, Yahushua will be there to put down the Satanic accusations.

Man’s acquired knowledge is the opposite of Yah’s, man looks in awe at his own godship and considers it to be superior, and uses it to oppress cajoul and coerce others.   Man likes to create ‘us and them’ situations; he can pick a trait such as skin colour, and use it to put down other groups of different skin colour, this then satisfies his lust for power and dominance by virtue of his own perceived godship.

This is the same in religions where there are ‘elevated’ ones, expressing their own doctrines as more important than Yah’s truths as revealed in the scripture and accepting the worship of their congregations.

He also taxes others via pleading for donations or making up dietary laws by which he levies ‘food taxes’ on all and sundry.

Yah requires that we humble ourselves, and pray, and seek His face, and turn from our wicked ways.

If we are leaders of congregations and not suppressing our own puny knowledge, then we are as clashing cymbals – preaching our own fictions as facts from a position of arrogance and vanity.

Yah requires that each of us builds our own relationship with Himself, we cannot approach Yah through the auspices of Reverend this or Rabbi that, or even of Saint somebody of somewhere.

We get nothing from bible colleges or Yeshivas – we get everything of value direct from the Torah enscribed heart.

I have to commit myself as a servant of Yah, His Torah must be written upon MY heart, I cannot tag along and sneak through on somebody else’s coat tails….

Yahovah still reigns

So I have two laws within me, the law of sin and death, the legacy of Adam, and the Law of the spirit of life, my legacy from Chavah the lifegiver (Eve)

Which one do I chose?

I want to choose life, but I do death, many times Adam wins.   So on the Day of Atonement, one of the two goats is my Adam which I must send into the wilderness, the other is my Chavah which I must send to Yah.

If we don’t understand Genesis 3 we cannot understand what Paul and Moses are writing about.

Bear this in mind as we look at the COVID-19 problems that the world is trying to manage as a humanist exercise.

CV19 itself is a fairly virulent ‘cold’ virus which has been transformed by spiritual malaise into a major Adamic event, mankind wants to control events with a hazardous vaccine rather than have faith in a loving and concerned God – Yahovah is our best protection and he has provided natural medicines and skills to control the epidemic if we are humble enough to use them.

Satan is having a field day, he has tricked Adam into injecting himself with deadly chemicals.

Yah tells us to ‘Fear Not’, because if we allow the law of the spirit of life to prevail, the dying to Adam and his law of sin and death is life in Yahushua.

Satan wants mankind to live and die under duress and oppression, that way Adam can be controlled and steered away from the Way, the Truth and the Life.   Satan is the father of lies, and this CV19 pandemic is built on a carpet of lies, there is not one facet of the so called ‘pandemic’ that is based upon Truth.

  • It is not a ‘pandemic’ it is a series of manmade epidemics
  • All the numbers have been manipulated
  • Successful natural treatments and preventatives have been ignored and proscribed
  • The ‘vaccine’ is not a vaccine but a genetic modifier changing DNA
  • The vaccine is highly toxic in itself
  • The toxic ‘genetic modifier’ is being mandated and is more dangerous than CV19 itself
  • The authorities want “a needle in every arm” WHY?

This is not a medical problem, it is a spiritual problem, as in the days of Noah, satan wants to create a race of chimera, even to the fooling of the very elect.

By breaking our DNA integrity satan can more easily infiltrate and control, Noah was chosen because he was pure in his lineage.

But do not despair – CV19 and mRNA are irrelevant, there is no condemnation for those who walk after the Law of the Spirit of Life in Torah (Yahushua made flesh and dwelling amongst us).

Do not despair, nothing has changed, Yahovah still reigns…..

Rebuking Yah

When Adam accused Yah of being responsible for the fall, he used his (Adam’s) judgement against the Creator.   We, having never been before the Creator and have difficulty recognising this situation because we have yet to experience it.

Adam thinks he is a god too, with all the facilities of a god (knowledge of good and bad) and he accuses Yah of doing ‘bad’ – he projects blame onto the woman, and thus indirectly, onto the Creator.

Adam is a god, a mighty one, but he did not Create, he did not speak the universe into being, and he cannot change Creation, he can only defile it.  So he is removed to a place where he can be god but without direct access to the tree of life.

Our ‘science’ does not give us access to knowledge concerning ‘life’ as such, a plant is ‘alive’, but we do not know the mechanisms that gives it life, let alone the consciousness that allows us to be aware that a plant has life in the first place. All life springs from a seed, whether from our mother’s ovaries, or from the packet we bought at the garden centre.   The seed is fertile and grows, these things happen without our knowledge or influence.

The woman’s body nurtures and gives life to the seed, this is our connection to the Tree of Life, going back through generations of mothers. The seed that is me being formed in my mother’s mother’s body.

It is the propensity for Adams (me), to assume that Yah is no longer relevant, and that the gods of the earth now rule, and that I will not have to stand before Yah and explain my rejection of Him.

The woman, Chavah, although she had eaten of the fruit of knowledge, still acknowledged Yah as Creator, she confessed that she had been deceived by the serpent.

I too, have been deceived by the serpent, that is not to pass the buck as such, but to acknowledge a truth.

When I come before Yah, I can use my godship, as Adam did, to rebuke Yah, or I can confess truth as the woman did,  Adam gets thrown out of Eden, this action, in the Hebrew, is in the masculine singular, so only Adam gets thrown out, it would appear that the woman still has access!

Which will I choose?   Will I tell Yah what I think is good or bad, or will I confess and listen to Him in all humility? There is a lot riding on this decidion…..

Identity

Are you a Christian?  Are you a Jew? Or are you, like Paul, a follower of the Way?

Jews worship a sack full of scrolls and their Rabbis, Christians worship a Roman pagan torture device known as a crucifix. People hide behind rituals trying to hide from Yah by keeping men’s rules.

Paul as a follower of the Way (of Yahovah) did not need identity or the external ikonry of a ‘holy’ man (and very few ‘holy’ women).

If Torah is written upon our hearts we do not need the external virtue signalling to make us set apart, we just follow the pathway set out for us by the personal miracle that guides us.

We do not need ‘religion’; we do not need proxies to intervene for us, we trust and rely on Yah for all things. Righteousness is personal, it comes from Yah direct, not from ‘holy’ men and their rules and rituals.

When we left the prodigal’s pigsty, we started on a journey, a journey whose destination is the gates of the Father.

We must make the journey with the mindset of a servant, and we are met from afar by other servants with messages of encouragement.   But we seek, we listen and we learn.   We strive to be in tune with Yah, so that when we arrive, the gates will open for us – we are a good and faithful servant and no threat to His household, and with no desire to once more demand our selfish inheritance.

It is not about being a famous evangelist or Rabbi, it is about a personal journey of humility, learning to put aside the ‘godship’ of the prodigal that landed him in the pigsty in the first place (the godship of the fallen Adam) and re-entering Eden as a Yah and Creation compliant renewed Adam.

Eden has gates, but only those who have given up on Adam and become followers of the Way of Yahovah can enter back in.    That Yah put the gates in Eden means that we can come back, but not as Adam knowing his own good, and his own bad – defining his own identity and his own righteousness.   But as a servant, reborn from above, and displaying Yah’s good and avoiding Yah’s bad following the directives written upon the heart – the Torah of Abraham and Moses.

Adam cannot re-enter Eden unless he gives up his self-godship; his propensity to do things his own way. For we like sheep have gone astray…..
