The Regeneration of Love

by John Greene

love in scriptureWhy is love so important in life? Why must disciples love one another and why does this matter? 1 John is wealth of information that projects the reality of love and relationship in the life of any genuine Christian. Love is a vital construct of all Biblical relationships, from the simplest to the most complex. Without love, nothing is possible before Elohim [‘God’, YHWH]. (“Love: Departing from Death to Life“; “Respecting Those You Love“; “Shining Love Toward Others in Righteousness“; “Defining Love“)

“Beloved, love one another because love is from Elohim. Also, everyone that is loving is regenerated from Elohim, and knows Elohim. One that does not love does not know Elohim, because Elohim is love.” – 1 John 4:7-8, P4T

Set Apart RuachLove originated and continues to be born [generated] of our Father, through Yahshua [Jesus] Messiah and the Set Apart Ruach [‘Holy Spirit’]. Love through each of His disciples is regenerated in us through the provision of His Son and the Spirit that lives in each one of us. The degree that each of us reflects His love depends on the level of cooperation and agreement with the Father. His protective love inspired the sacrifice of His Son, set apart both to Him and to those of us that are willing to accept and respond to His sacrifice, redeeming us from inherited sin. (“Grace, His Protective Love & You“; “Some Ideas on the Meaning of Sin“; “Understanding Sin“; “Disciple: Exalted In Agreement Though Humility“; “Foundation of Salvation“)

agreement with YHWHHow each person responds is a personal decision through relationship with Him. From the personal decision springs agreement and the beginnings of relationship with the Father or disagreement with Him, the substitution of His truth. In the Way we have been redeemed, and we are indebted to the Father and Yahshua [Jesus] our Savior to love one another. Both have modeled the reality of their protective love or grace to everyone that is willing to listen and agree with them, in trust. The Set Apart Ruach [‘Holy Spirit’] is now appointed to us as Counselor and Teacher, so that each of us listens to Elohim through Him within each of us. As we accept [discern] Him and live in Him, we become regenerated, even as each of us is already completed through Him in trust and action, set apart in truth as a living place [‘holy place’] for His Ruach [Spirit]. (John 2:19-21; Matthew 24:15; Ephesians 2:1-22; “Loving the World & Rejecting the Messiah“; “The Abomination That Causes Desolation“; “Disciples & Real Living Now“; “Supporting the Way or the World“)

“In Him the love of Elohim was shown toward us because Elohim set apart His only Son into the world that lives through Him. In this One is love, not that we love Elohim, but that He loves us and set apart His Son as atonement for our sins. Beloved, that Elohim in this way loves us. We are indebted then to love one another. Not even one has seen Elohim at any time. When we love on another, Elohim lives* in us, and His love is completed in us. In this way, we know that we live in Him, and He in us, because His Spirit is appointed to us. Then we discern and witness that the Father set apart the Son – the Savior of the world. Because, whoever agrees Yahshua is the Son of Elohim, Elohim lives* in Him, and He is in Elohim. Then we know and trust the love that Elohim has in us. Elohim is love. Then, he that lives* in love lives* in Elohim, and Elohim in him. – 1 John 4:9-16, P4T

“Are you not aware that you are Elohim’s living place* and the Ruach of Elohim occupies your tent* within you?“ – 1 Corinthians 3:16, P4T

begin to discernFor those of us that have discerned and accepted the Way of Yahshua [Jesus], we cannot continue to mix with the way of the world in order to remain set apart to Him. (1 Peter 1:18-19) A disciple of the Messiah becomes a renewed kind of creation, and the original creation of sin is passed over, becoming fresh or new. (“Making the Way Around Sin“; “A Work of Renewal and Completion“; “Blind to Righteousness“; “YHWH: The Choice to Stay Loyal“)

“But Elohim also raised up the Master, and released us from death through His own miraculous power. Do you not know that your bodies are members of the Messiah? Likewise then, do you atone for sin with these members of the Messiah by agreeing with the members of a whore? It is not this way! Or do you not know that joining with a whore is becoming one body? Why does He say, ‘Two will become one body?’ Also, joining the Master is as one Ruach. Run away from the whoring of idolatry. Every sin that one has any agreement with is outside of the body, but one acting the whore sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the living place* of the Set Apart Ruach in you, that you possess from Elohim? Then you are not your own! Because you are purchased with great cost, then magnify Elohim in your body, and in your ruach, which are from Elohim.” – 1 Corinthians 6:14-20, P4T

“So then, anyone in Messiah is a renewed kind of creation. The original is passed over. See, all is coming to be renewed.” – 2 Corinthians 5:17, P4T

“Now what agreement has the living place* of Elohim joined with idols? Because you are the living place of the living Elohim, just as Elohim said, ‘I will live in them and walk among them, and I will be their Elohim, and they will be My people.” – 2 Corinthians 6:16, P4T

“Because of the presence of our Master Yahshua Messiah, even our assembling together to Him, now we entreat you not to be quickly agitated in mind, nor alarmed; neither in ruach, nor in word, nor in letter as if through us, because the day of Messiah is present. Let nothing deceive you according to any other way – that except apostasy comes first and the son of destruction that is set over and proudly exalted over all named gods or objects of honor; so that he is as Elohim, set in the living place* of Elohim, exhibiting himself as though he is Elohim.” – 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4, P4T (Daniel 11:36-37)

1 John 4:15-16 points back to what the opening verses of this chapter told us.

“Beloved, do not believe every ruach [spirit], but discern between the ruachs, whether they are from Elohim. Because many false prophets come forward to the world. By this One you know the Ruach of Elohim. Every ruach that agrees with the living appearance of Yahshua [Jesus] Messiah is from Elohim. Then, every ruach that does not agree with the living appearance of Yahshua Messiah is not from Elohim. This then is the antichrist that you heard will make an appearance, and at the present time, is already in the world.” – 1 John 4:1-3

robe-of-righteousness-smA genuine disciple comes to agree with the Father’s righteousness [what Yahshua proclaimed] rather than the morals, fashions and traditions of man. Disciples are “born again” or regenerated through the Ruach [Spirit], set apart to Elohim instead of the world of corruption. (John 3:3, 5-9; John 1:12-13; Ezekiel 36:26-27; 1 Peter 1:3-4; Titus 3:5; 1 John 5:2, 4) In this way the Ruach [Spirit] brings the willing into the Father’s righteousness. Regeneration begins to sink into the depths of the mind, heart and spirit – transforming thoughts, affections, the inner person – shining the light of righteousness into darkness. The Ruach [Spirit] takes shallow men and women consumed with animal selfishness and worldliness into loving what Elohim loves and hating what Elohim hates. This expresses the regeneration through the Ruach [Spirit] as this same regeneration begins to more fully express the protective love of Elohim. (“Christians, Tyranny & the Man of Lawlessness“; “The Antichrist & War on Reality“; “YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“)

* in Hebrew, the expression is to pitch your tent or for the Ruach to live in the tent of your body and ruach – tent=living place
“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]. May it be as you have promised!
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 name Yahshua [Y’shua] is an original language name for Jesus.
He is often referred to simply as the Messiah or Master.
