Shining Love Toward Others in Righteousness

by John and Ruth Greene

“Owe nothing to any man except brotherly love for one another. Indeed brotherly love for others completes the Law.” – Romans 13:8, direct translation

brotherly-loveWhy is brotherly love for others a debt? Debts in life, whether real or imagined, do come and go. However, for a disciple, brotherly love must continue. When you love someone else and widen your brotherly love to others, you fulfill the desire of your Father. In effect, you owe this to Him. Your Heavenly Father says that you are answerable to Him. (“Authority: The Real Meaning of Romans 13“; “Agape: Discipleship is Renewal“; “Real Love“)

“For this reason, no adultery, no murder, no robbery, no false witness, no coveting; even if any other commandment, sum it up in this doctrine under love your neighbor. Certainly, love completes the Law. Brotherly love works no evil to neighbors. Certainly, brotherly love completes the Law.” – Romans 13:9-10, direct translation

Bible knowledgeThe commandments not to commit adultery, murder, steal, lie or covet are components of real brotherly love. You love your neighbor as yourself! You may say you do. But, are you being honest with yourself? Keep in mind that it is easy to deceive yourself, even where loving and guarding yourself is concerned. You must be concerned with your Father’s love and be willing to express it. Holding grudges and hatred are ultimately self-destructive, as well as destroying community or unity. You effectively divide yourself, spreading the contamination to others. You stop communicating. You grow in resentment. You justify your behavior. You bring misery and contention into your life. This brings about stress and ill health. You are divided against yourself and cannot continue, just as Satan and the majority of mankind are. This is also why people have so much sickness and disease. (Galatians 5:13-14; “Healing Wounds That People Can’t See“; “Life Healing and Belief“; “The Truth About Anger“; “Danger of a Reprobate Mind: Sexual Sin and YHWH“)

“So if a rule is divided against itself, that rule can absolutely not continue.”- Mark 3:24, direct translation

roman-battlement-smYHWH intended disciples to be active rather than standing still. To be active means to guard, to protect, to continue in the righteousness of Elohim. Even when you take a stand, you aren’t staying in one place. You actively place a hedge of protection around the righteousness in your mind and heart, in every spiritual battle you encounter. You don’t fall into a spiritual slumber that the world is in. You are awake and ready for battle, to operate in the purpose of Messiah at any moment. (Ephesians 6:11-18; “Filling Your Life with Truth Instead of Deception“; “Breaking the Hold of Stress“; “Spiritual Disease that Eats at Your Salvation“; “Foundation of Salvation“)

“Even here, understand the occasion, because now is our hour to rise from sleep. Indeed now our salvation is nearer than when we believed. The night is but well along, the day is near. Now cast off the works of darkness, even put on the armor of light.” – Romans 13:11-12, direct translation

squeezing-timeTime continues to be pressed, as if the sponge of time were being squeezed by a strong hand. You may feel pressed on every side. Feeling pressure and oppression is likely as the Return of Messiah approaches. That is why each of us cannot count on personal strength, or as the world says, your ‘goodness.’ As disciples of Yahshua [Jesus], we are to put on the armor of Elohim that the apostle Paul outlines in Ephesians 6. This allows you to walk in the track of Elohim’s righteousness. In this way, each disciple is able to continually persevere against the pressure of the agency of the devil in daily battle.This allows each of us to walk honestly, set apart to YHWH through Yahshua [Jesus] in the power of the Set Apart Spirit [Dedicated or ‘Holy’ Spirit]. This way, you are not part of the world, the kingdom that is due for destruction in the wake of Elohim’s Kingdom. (Galatians 5:16, 19-21; John 17:15-18; 1 Corinthians 6:9, 18; 1 Peter 2:9; James 3:14; Colossians 3:5; Galatians 3:27, 5:16; Revelation 21:8; Proverbs 23:20; “Strongholds & the Armor of YHWH“; “Knowing Where You Stand on YHWH’s Threshing Floor“; “Delusion & the Tightening Noose of the Beast System“; “YHWH: The Choice to Stay Loyal“)

“Walk honestly, as in the day of judgment, not reveling and drunkenness, not in sexual abandon and lasciviousness, not in strife and envy. Indeed, put on the Master Yahshua [Jesus] Messiah and don’t abide in provision for the flesh into desire.” – Romans 13:13-14, direct translation

“If I speak with the tongues of men and of messengers, but do not have love, I have become as sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophecy, and know all secrets and all knowledge, and if I have all belief, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am none at all. And if I give out all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but do not have love, I am not profited at all. Love is patient, is kind, love does not envy, love does not boast, is not puffed up, does not behave indecently, does not seek its own, is not provoked, reckons not the evil, does not rejoice over the unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth, it covers all, believes all, expects all, endures all. Love never fails…” – 1 Corinthians 13:1-8a, ISR98

Set Apart RuachAs a disciple of Yahshua [Jesus] the Messiah, you have the Holy Spirit. He gives you spiritual gifts and strengthens you as you continue to abide in Him. He helps you with the ability to express the brotherly love that you need, even through you may have never expressed that kind of love before. You continue daily in the loving provision of your Savior. However, spiritual gifts are useless unless you express them in furthering the purpose Elohim’s Kingdom, which is to instruct and encourage others in the righteousness of YHWH. Your spiritual light is a beacon to others that need it, because the time is short, even as opportunity often is. That is what your Father’s grace is all about. (Matthew 5:13-15, 6:21, 28:18-20; James 1:12, 2:14-26; Proverbs 16:4; Ecclesiastes 12:13-14; “Gifts of the Spirit & Speaking in Tongues“; “The Secret of Dedicated Disciples“; “Disciples: Focused on the Messiah & His Purpose“)

“For YAHWEH so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, HRB
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 righteousness. 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.
