Real Love Resides in Righteousness

by John Greene

narrow-path-track-righteousnessRighteousness is not a popular topic in this day, not that most people even truly identify with the concept. Most of humanity is concerned with the worldly ideals of responsibility, duty, justice, ethics, morality and personal rights, trying to attribute these to some kind of love. The idea of love is often a confused and compromised mess of conflicting ideals and ideas. The real concept of love has been largely hijacked and conformed for various political, commercial and religious purposes. While many would call scripture “religious,” the truth is that scripture is all about personal relationship with Elohim [‘God’, YHWH], seeking out the mind and heart of each man, woman and child. Outside of scripture, all else is the creation of man – the attempt to maintain, to increase and/or exploit power over other people. That isn’t love, nor is it righteousness. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7; “The Regeneration of Love“; “Love: Departing from Death to Life“; “Grace, His Protective Love & You“)

bible-trust-YHWH-11 John starts with the love of our Father, how Yahshua [Jesus] made the Way around sin (2:1-6), that disciples are partners with the Father and Yahshua [Jesus] (1:1-5) and one another (1:5-10). We are told to banish the love of the world, where billions chase after some kind of satisfaction in life. (2:15-17) We’ve learned that disciples are in warfare, but as long as we walk in the Way, each of us is firmly covered in our Father’s protective love, which we can easily model with each other, even though each of us is a much lesser reflection of Him and His provision for each of us. Yet, through His love and Ruach [Spirit], we can overcome the world! (4:4-6; 1 Corinthians 10:3-5) We have learned that the love our Father has offered to us is with the purpose of being known as His children. (3:1, 10)

Set Apart RuachAs we learn to walk in righteousness in the Ruach [Spirit], each of us must learn to love one another in the assembly as brothers and sisters, continually allowing sin to be rooted out, even as we fight together in spiritual warfare. (3:13-24) “…Anyone not exercising righteousness is not of Elohim, nor one that does not love his brother.” – 1 John 3:10, P4T  We have learned about being born again or regenerated, set apart through the Set Apart Ruach [‘Holy Spirit’] and not to be deceived by the world. (4:7-16) The Set Apart Ruach of Elohim guides disciples, those that seek to walk in His Way of truth. In the Way, disciples walk from death to life, as each of us learn to agree with the Father, Yahshua [Jesus], & the Set Apart Ruach [‘Holy Spirit’]! (4:1-3) There is plenty to understand that may be new to you. Don’t fear or shrink back! (“YHWH: The Choice to Stay Loyal“)

“In the same way our joined love is completed, in order that we possess outspokenness in the day of judgment, in that just as He is, so are we in this world. No fear is in complete love, that is complete love throws out fear in that fear holds torment and to be frightened is not to be completed in love. We love Him in that He loved us in the beginning. When someone has claimed to love Elohim and hates his brother, this one is a liar because anyone not loving a brother that is physically seen, how much is one able to love Elohim that is not physically seen? But this command we possess from Him, that the one loving Elohim must also love his brother.” – 1 John 4:17-21, P4T

bible-studyAs partners together in Elohim’s love, our joined love is completed though Messiah and Ruach [Spirit]. Because of this, we can have all boldness that we are as Messiah is before the world and completed in relationship through Him, that there is no fear in complete love, and that complete love through Messiah and Ruach holds no fear or torment. This means that shame, guilt and fear of the world are not of Him, and need to be rooted out in us. We learn to love Him and our brother and sisters in the assembly, even as He loved us from the beginning. We learn to love our brothers and sisters by example, as our Father loves us. This law of loving one another is no less important than forgiving one another and ourselves for the errors of the past. (“Living as Partners & Friends in Messiah Through Provision“; “Real Trust in YHWH and Caring for Brothers and Sisters“; “The Need to Keep Spiritually Clean“)

“Everyone trusting that Yahshua is the Messiah is regenerated by Elohim. So everyone loving is regenerated through Him, regenerated through love, and in this know that the children of Elohim love whenever we love Elohim and guard His commands. Then this is the love of Elohim, that we guard His commands, then His commands are not burdensome, because everyone regenerated by Elohim conquers the world. Even this is the victory conquering the world: our belief through trust. Who is conquering the world except through believing that Yahshua is the Son of Elohim?“ – 1 John 5:1-5, P4T

joyEach disciple that is able needs to come to understand this pivotal point: we are regenerated through Ruach [Spirit] through love, as each of us guards His commands. As we are regenerated in the Ruach, we overcome the occult of the world through belief and trust through our Messiah and Savior. (“Foundation of Salvation“)

“This relationship of trust is being established and continued through living water of the Ruach and shed blood of Yahshua Messiah. The Ruach is carried in each disciple through divine revelation. That the Ruach is truth, because They are Three that testify: the Ruach, and living water, and the shed blood. The Three are One and the same.” – 1 John 5:6-8, P4T

living-watersThe regeneration through the Ruach [Spirit] by divine revelation is through living water and shed blood. The Ruach [Spirit] is the living water and the shed blood is the provision through the Messiah. Through the Set Apart Ruach [‘Holy Spirit’], eternal life came to be in mortal flesh. (Luke 1:35; 1 John 1:2) Yahshua [Jesus] gave His earthly life, sacrificing His blood in the flesh. The living water is the eternal life that Yahshua [Jesus] brought and brings all believers. (Ephesians 3:5; Romans 1:3-4) Yahshua [Jesus] lived in blood and Ruach [Spirit] while on living on earth. His blood takes away our inherited and repented sins, and the living waters of eternal life take away spiritual death. (John 3:5; 1 Corinthians 15:54, 56; Hebrews 7:6; “Understanding Sin“; “He Made the Way Around Sin“)

“Yahshua responded and said to her, ‘Everyone drinking from this water thirsts again, but whoever drinks from the water that I bring forth, this one will not thirst forever. But the water that I bring forth to this one will become a spring of water gushing into everlasting life.” – John 4:13-14, P4T

“Though you seize the testimony of men, the testimony of Elohim is greater in that this is the testimony of Elohim which made the Way around, testified by His own Son. The one that places trust towards the Son of Elohim possesses the testimony in oneself. Not trusting in Elohim makes one a liar, because of not believing the testimony that Elohim made the Way around, the witness of His Son.” – 1 John 5:9-10, P4T

supreme court united statesHere is the kicker that is usually disregarded because of poor translation and omission. John specifies that in that day, that disciples seized upon the testimony of men over the testimony of Elohim: Father, Son and Ruach. The provision of the Son made the Way around sin, as testified and lived out fully by the Son. Our Father made the Way around sin [G4012, peri] and set us straight before Him through Jesus Christ. Anyone that believes in the testimony of men over the testimony of Elohim does not show trust in His Authority, which makes them liars. Why? Because they don’t really believe the Father, in His Son or in the testimony of the Set Apart Ruach [‘Holy Spirit’]. They prefer idolatry to what they give lip service to. They prefer idolatry to truth. They prefer tradition and the fables of men to reality. In effect, the same is true for multitudes today, including those that have sought to dumb down the testimony of these scriptures. To be regenerated through love is be in agreement with Father, Son, and Set Apart Ruach. To deny this makes you a liar, and gives you the judgment of a liar. This is not about His Name as such, but about His Authority, about recognizing that Authority and about what has been done for you. (Revelation 21:8, 22:14-15; John 8:44; Romans 3:13; Proverbs 14:5, 19:9, 30:5; “The Idolatry Factor“; “The Basics of Strongholds & Idolatry“)

“Then this is the witness, that Elohim offered to us everlasting life, and the same life is in His own Son. Anyone possessing the Son possesses life. Anyone not possessing the Son of Elohim does not possess life. I have written this to you believers on the Authority of the Son of Elohim with the purpose that you know you possess everlasting life, and that you believe on the Authority of the Son of Elohim. Then this is the outspokenness we possess in Him, because when asked anything according to His own purpose, He hears us.” – 1 John 5:11-14, P4T

foundation of trustDisciples can be confident and outspoken about our trust in Him because we possess trust in Him. As individuals, we believe in what has been done for us. In this way, through trust, each of us possesses Him in mind and heart, or at least, is actively seeking to do this, even as you seek to banish the love of the world from your life. For this is loving Him, and what He has done for you! (“Called to Have Confidence in Messiah“; “Disciple: Exalted In Agreement Though Humility“)

“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.
