Some Christian music tells of Jesus Christ [Yahshua] through teaching from the Bible and some Christian music is simply the doctrine of man. This same reality is true of the spoken word. One of the big pluses in Christian music is that music can grab attention in ways that the spoken word cannot. The only way to describe the love that you have for your Heavenly Father and His provision is the love that you know in your heart. Music can stir that. That love wasn’t placed there by man. So music can be a start in ministering to others. However, no matter how anyone may like music, it is not the end of being a disciple of Messiah. (“Real Love“; “A Doctrine of Demons“; “YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“)
Where does that put some ministries that operate in the flesh and focus on the flesh? Elohim [‘God’, YHWH] can put His Word into the hearts of carnal man through personal experience and then through deeper relationship. Unhappily, many of the teachings that we have today are in reality a counterfeit message that comes from the contrivances of man, borne from the heart of man, not from the righteousness of Elohim. You will never know the difference if you do not have discernment that comes from reading YHWH’s Word and developing a righteous relationship through His Holy Spirit [Sanctified, Set Apart Spirit]. (“The Journey of Life through Scripture“; “Building a Counterfeit Kingdom“; “Religion & Rise in Opposition to Christians“; “Bible Prophecy and the Rise of the Corporation“)
Man’s understanding of the Word is readily accepted instead of having Elohim to teach and magnify the true love that He has for you in your heart so that you can understand the reality of His ministry. When Yahshua [Jesus] was here, He taught the Word of YHWH. Man saw the Holy Spirit work through healing and life changes. The early scriptures (Torah) and the Messiah taught us about demonic control. He spoke to demons and set people free from all kinds of negative influences. (“Which Shepherd Do You Believe?“; “YHWH’s Threshing Floor“)
All Yahshua [Jesus] had to do was to speak the Word. Yahshua [Jesus] not only was the Word, but He spoke it. Or should we turn that around? Yahshua [Jesus] spoke the Word because He was the Word. He still is. You can’t understand the Word from going to church and listening to someone ramble on about some scriptures in man’s interpretation. You’ve got to hear from YHWH yourself. Most preachers say nothing about this reality because they fear that your relationship with your Heavenly Father will take them out of the loop. The truth still remains that you must sit down yourself, open up the Bible and let the Holy Spirit teach you. YHWH is a friend to invest time with. Only by His Spirit will you learn to come to know Elohim for who He is. (“Listening to the Holy Spirit“; “Are You Rejecting YHWH’s Holy Spirit?“)
If you hear what appears as a righteous message from the world, you don’t get that from the Father, but from the world. This is because humanism and other philosophies often masquerade as truth. When you hear Elohim’s spoken Word by reading it, sounding His Word into your heart and coming to an understanding by His Word, only then can you begin to understand and receive what YHWH and His Son are all about. (“Becoming Your Own God Through General Goodness?“; “Deceptions of Ages: How People are Deceived“; “Filling Your Life with Truth Instead of Deception“)
It’s not a matter of moving emotion. Some are moved by the crucifixion of [Yahshua] Jesus, by watching a movie. Are they moved by flesh or by the Holy Spirit in their hearts? No one on the outside would ever know. Who would go around broadcasting the truth of the matter? How many people know the difference to even ask the question? Most people do not understand that you must open up the Bible and contemplate His Word daily, exactly like you get up and feed your body. The Bible must be spiritual food for you to live daily.
