Abiding with Your Heavenly Father

original text fragment

original text fragment

by John and Ruth Greene

“YHWH, who does sojourn in Your Tent?
Who does dwell in Your set-apart mountain?
He who walks blamelessly,
And does righteousness,
And speaks the truth in his heart.
He has not slandered with his tongue,
He has not done evil to his neighbor,
Nor lifted up a reproach against his friend;
In whose eyes a reprobate one is despised,
But he esteems those who fear YHWH;
He who swears to his own hurt and does not change;
He has not put out his silver at interest,
And has not taken a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these is never moved.” – Psalm 15:1-5, ISR98

The question of abiding in YHWH, Elohim of Hosts continues today for all that are willing to consider it. Before the Messiah, the Jews had a temple and prophets where the Spirit of YHWH could reside among His people. The temple was the focus of worship. The temple was destroyed, the remnant of the nation abolished and the Jews scattered. Today, the disciple of the Master, Yahshua [Jesus], is the tabernacle of YHWH’s presence through the Divine Counselor, the Holy Spirit [Sanctified, Set Apart Spirit]. His servants, those that love Him, are set apart to Him. (Luke 18:18-30; Acts 16:30-33; Hebrews 8:1-13; “Abiding With YHWH in Quiet Places“)

Disciples of Messiah are to be spiritually upright because YHWH has standards. YHWH’s people live among those in the dark kingdom that do not share the same standards. This is often forgotten by multitudes that profess Christianity. The standards of a disciple come from YHWH and not from the dark kingdom. (Isaiah 33:15, 56:1; Micah 6:8; Habakkuk 2:4; Mark 12:29-31; “The Need to Keep Spiritually Clean“; “Forsaking Bitterness“; “Wisdom & the Battle of Two Kingdoms“)

What a person speaks honestly tends to come from the heart. While controlling the tongue is vital, taking care to expose your mind and heart to the goodness of YHWH is the key to changing your mind and heart, and along with it, your mouth. This is done through a deep study of the Bible and through good associations, keeping your mind and heart focused on the will of YHWH instead of your own. This is part of the real spiritual warfare that disciples of the Messiah face. (Job 1:10; Psalm 34:7; 2 Corinthians 10:3-5; “A Tough Tongue Creates Tough Times“; “The Fire of Gehenna and the Tongue“)

Words hold great power that is often lost in the world today. The world doesn’t realize that words have a great potential for power. Just look how the words you speak either build up or tear down those around you. The words that you use reflect greatly on your relationship with YHWH. Speaking honestly, refusing to slander or lie and keeping your word are cornerstones of trust in YHWH. He seeks to complete you through the power of His Holy Spirit. (“Battling Satan With the Word“; “What Is Washing By The Word?“; “YHWH’s People Walk by Faith and Obedience to His Word“; “Marriage: Wise Words Bring Healing“)

The foundation of trust in YHWH is a generous caring spirit or attitude. In line with His will, YHWH forbid His people to loan money or materials to needy countrymen through charging interest. Instead, money often controls, destroying goodwill and relationship with everyone because of selfishness and greed. Selfishness and greed are always spiritually destructive, incompatible with the standards of your Heavenly Father. The righteous in heart want to stand blameless before Him. Are you among them? (“YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“)

“For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, RNKJV
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your glory. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. Amen.
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
