Bringing Real Peace

John 1426-27
by John Greene

Multitudes that profess to be His people are full of fear, worry, anxiety, anger, and the fruit of the world that currently exists around us. Our Father has something much better in mind for those that are willing to believe, to trust Him. Read the scripture above carefully. There can be no peace for the wicked, the twisted, the crooked before YHWH. (Matthew 10:34; Romans 2:9-10, 16:20; Isaiah 48:22, 57:21)

bible-7Then, knowing what peace is brings value to the discussion. Where scripture is concerned, peace means to be complete or sound, to have unity in covenant agreement, to be in agreement with Elohim through righteousness, or to be whole and well, to live in safety through Elohim’s righteousness. Peace is not passive, but active and living. (2 Thessalonians 3:16, 5:23; Isaiah 26:3, 32:17-18, 48:18, 54:10, 13; Psalm 85:10)

Set Apart RuachAs disciples live in this world, how do we receive the peace that Yahshua [Jesus] promised? This is through the Set Apart Ruach [Holy Spirit], the Counselor that is the provision of Yahshua [Jesus] the Messiah after His redemptive sacrifice and ascension. (John 3:13) He set us straight, completing us before YHWH for all time. It is up to each of us, through the Set Apart or His Dedicated Ruach [Holy Spirit] to do the rest (Acts 10:36; Romans 5:1; Ephesians 2:14-17; Colossians 1:19-20; Isaiah 9:6-7; Micah 5:4-5), to become new through the provision of our Messiah, Yahshua [Jesus]. (Colossians 3:1, 9-10; Ephesians 4:20-24; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Titus 3:3-6; 1 Corinthians 2:14; 1 Peter 1:13-15; 1 John 1:6-10)

earth-spaceUltimately, as peace is established, the curse of the ground will be removed. The nature and substance of earth will become full of peace. (Amos 9:13-15; Isaiah 32:15; Joel 3:18) The believers of the world will be led and covered by the Sovereignty of the Prince of Peace in a new age of peace. (Revelation 3:12, 21:1-4, 10; Isaiah 2:4, 55:12; Micah 4:3) Elohim’s Sovereignty will become firmly established through a purified and restored earth.  (Revelation 2:26-27; Psalm 2:6-8, 47:1-9; Jeremiah 23:5; Ezekiel 37:21-28; Daniel 2:44-45, 7:17-18, 27; Micah 4:1-5; Zechariah 9:9-10, 14:9, 16-17)

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!

Imaginary Independence

dependence

by John Greene

“Trust in YHWH with all heart, not relying in your wisdom. All your course of life should know Him. He will make straight your road.” – Proverbs 3:5-6, P4T

brokenPeople cling to the treasure of imaginary independence. They find their identity, even their value in their personal brokenness, and even the brokenness of others. (Matthew 7:15-23, 15:1-8; 18:7; 24:4; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Isaiah 61:1-4; Hosea 4:6) They guard this brokenness with all their strength. They hold their sickness tightly, as if with a death grip. This is because a prison full of lies is easier is regarded as so much easier than truth on any level. Because of this, the protective love of the Father, as well as those that truly care, can be blocked or hindered. Healing is also hindered or blocked. But Elohim’s love is larger than your sickness. He has done His part through the sacrifice of His Son, setting us straight before Him. (Philippians 4:6-9; 1 Peter 2:24; James 4:7; Psalm 34:18; 147:3; Isaiah 41:10, 53:5, 54:17; “Breaking Strongholds of False Authority“; “Strongholds & the Armor of YHWH“; “The Armor of Elohim“; “The Provision of Healing and Health“; “The Idolatry Factor“)

“Accordingly Yahshua [Jesus] spoke once more to them, saying, ‘I AM, the Light of the World. Follow me, do not walk at all in darkness. To the contrary, possess the Light of Life.’” – John 8:12, P4T

He continues to pursue you relentlessly through opportunities that become present in your life. He wants you to listen to Him. Yahshua [Jesus] made the Way around a world full of sin. His love opened the Way. Your Way to answer His love is to make Him the center of your life. (Matthew 6:24-34, 7:13-14; “Pursue Righteousness“; “YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“; “Supporting the Way or the World“; “He Made the Way Around Sin“; “Christianity Proclaimed a Threat to Society“; “Building a Counterfeit Kingdom“)

For Elohim in this way loved the world, so that He brought forth His Only Son, in order that all believing in Him not perish, but possess eternal life. – John 3:16, P4T

Come near to me, all that are fatigued and overburdened. I exempt you. Take up My yoke on you and learn from Me because I am gentle and humble of heart, and obtain rest for your spirit. For My yoke is kind and My load is light.” – Matthew 11:25-30, P4T

“But the hour is set and now is, when true worshipers will bow to the Father in Spirit and truth. For that reason the Father seeks this sort of person to worship Him. Elohim is Spirit and those worshiping Him must worship in Spirit and truth.” – John 4:23-24, P4T

A Disciple in Warfare

“Because we walk in the flesh, we do not serve according to the flesh. For the tools of our service in warfare are not fleshly, but powerful through Elohim to the destruction of strongholds. Destroy imaginations and all high places that are exalted over the knowledge of Elohim and make captive every mind to obedience of the Messiah.” – 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, P4T

Two Kingdoms now online at AmazonIn the battlefield of this world, Elohim has established His track of righteousness where every disciple of Yahshua [Jesus] is anointed to walk. He created the Way. The choice is to stay on the track of the Father’s entrenched protective love or to jump that track and make your own way. Part of understanding the war going on around you and within you is that each disciple is to realize fully that destructive strongholds in your life matter. They matter because they work against you. Disciples must take the authority they have been given toward the idolatries (high places) of life and crush them, bringing your mind and heart into loving obedience.

Chasing Satisfaction

stag craving water

“As the stag longs after flowing streams of water, the righteous one longs to be near Elohim.” – Psalm 42:1, P4T

desperateThe world is a place where you can chase just about anything and crave endlessly for satisfaction. Yet, only some people find satisfaction, while most settle for something else. People try to fill the lack of presence, the lack of relationship with their Heavenly Father with something else. It is a hole that only He is able to fill. (“Abiding With YHWH in Quiet Places“; “He Made the Way Around Sin“; “Building a Relationship With YHWH“; “Holy Spirit 101“; “Disciples & the Occult of the World“; “Knowing Where You Stand on YHWH’s Threshing Floor“)

Loving the World & Rejecting the Messiah

John 1715-19

by John Greene

“Do not love the world, nor that in the world. When anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in Him. For everything in this world, the desires of the flesh, the desires of the eyes, and the empty assurances in the course of life, are not from the Father, but is from the world. But the world passes, and its desires, but one that lives the purpose of Elohim continues into the age.” – 1 John 2:15-17, P4T

What you have just began to read is a vital passage of scripture. John was delivering a powerful message. He was building on what Yahshua [Jesus] said in Matthew 6:24 and 33-34.

“Nobody is able to be in bondage to two masters because either that one will hate one and love the other, or hold fast to one and despise the other. You cannot be in bondage to Elohim and the idol of wealth… Now, seek first the Sovereignty of Elohim and His righteousness, so all these will be added to you. Don’t be troubled then with the cares for tomorrow, because tomorrow takes thought of its own self. Each day has enough wickedness of its own.” – Matthew 6:24, 33-34, P4T

supreme court united statesBeing in love with this world of flesh, including believing and depending on the empty assurances and promises of authorities, politicians, business leaders and others is exactly what the majority of Christians have fallen into. Many Bible translations use the word ‘pride,’ but that is only part of the truth. The oldest available Greek text uses the word ‘alazonaeia’, which means to trust in worldly or personal power, as well as trusting in the stability of worldly things [kosmos: of man, the decoration of man’s order]. The mindset of the world is presented constantly as the norm, and the majority of Christians in most places have come to believe and accept what they are told by the world with as much trust as what scripture says. Multitudes are wholly seduced by the names, places and titles of the world. Is that you? (“Grace, His Protective Love & You“; “Supporting the Way or the World“; “Disciples & the Occult of the World“; “Fighting a World of Fear & Delusion“; “The Antichrist & the War on Reality“)

There is a larger context in this passage of scripture that is usually ignored, or considered separately.

“Little children, now is the last age, and just as you understand that antimessiahs will come, even now have come many antimessiahs. On this account, we understand that this is the last age. They departed from us, indeed they were not from us. Because if they had been from us, they would have continued with us. – indeed it was revealed that none of them were from us. And you have been anointed by the Set-apart One, and know all thoroughly. I did not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and because no lie is of the truth. Who is the liar, except the one denying that Yahshua is the Messiah? This one is an antimessiah, denying the Father and the Son. Everyone denying the Son does not have the Father. The one in agreement with the Son has the Father also. Now then, as you continue together in what you heard and what you were taught, in that case what you heard and were taught will continue in you. You will also continue in the Son and in the Father.” – 1 John 2:18-24. P4T

ruined-hollow-churchHow curious that John discusses the love of the world that is passing away along with its desires, immediately followed by the discussion of those that go against the Messiah and His teaching. This was not by accident. Many were drifting away from the truth that they originally knew, mixing it with the world, or trading it for another twisted gospel, or even rejecting their Messiah’s provision directly. In this passage of scripture many translations confuse what John is actually saying here, mixing another message about an “Antichrist” culled from Muslim teaching. John tells us exactly what an antimessiah is in the scripture above. (“World War 3? End Time Insights About Gog and Magog“; “Playing It Safe With Another Gospel“; “Paradosis: Teaching or Tradition?“; “Following the Right Jesus“)

dusty-bible-read-meAn antimessiah originally refers to someone that WAS within the body of believers in the first century. An antimessiah departed from the truth of Yahshua’s [Jesus’] original message and adopted their own, or another one. In this way, they denied what Yahshua [Jesus] said, calling Him a liar. Each one that abandoned the provision of Elohim [‘God’, YHWH] denied Yahshua [Jesus] and that provision. The word ‘antimessiah’ means ‘instead of Messiah.’ Those that became deceived within the body of believers substituted truth for the lie. This includes those disciples that returned back to Judaism of that time. This would be typical for those that decided to deny the Son with the idea of returning to the Father alone. However, anyone within the body of believers of that time that made a substitution for Yahshua [Jesus] rejected the provision of YHWH, condemning themselves. Instead of being Set Apart to Him, they became set apart to the world and slated for destruction as chaff on YHWH’s threshing floor. (John 7:14-24; Matthew 3:12; Luke 3:17; “The Abomination That Causes Desolation“; “Culture: Prompting Falsehood Through the Lie“)

broken-faithToday is much the same, but finding the truth is much harder unless you look at scripture alone, and then, you need to consider the translation you use. Many denominations of Christianity have adopted the wholesale corruption of scripture and their own gospel as their version of truth. There is no benefit to falling in and selling out to the wrong group of Christians because salvation is personal and individual, regardless of what any denomination or church leaders may say. Each person is answerable to YHWH for his or her own life. (Matthew 7:21-28, 16:24-25; Acts 10:35; James 1:23-25; Ezekiel 18:20) Instead of following after the traditions and fables of man, take the time and care to seek the truth of scripture so that you can be counted as the harvested wheat of YHWH’s threshing floor, as you walk spiritually on His track of righteousness in personal relationship. Loving the world is the same as substituting for the Messiah, which is the same as rejecting Yahshua [Jesus] the Messiah as the provision of YHWH. (John 14:21-24, 15:5-6; Matthew 12:30, 50, 24:13; Acts 2:21; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Romans 2:6-10, 14:12; Galatians 6:7-8; “Knowing Where You Stand on YHWH’s Threshing Floor“; “The Wheels of Ezekiel“)

He Made the Way Around Sin

by John Greene

“My beloved children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. Then when anyone sins, each of us has an Intercessor at the side of the Father, Yahshua, the righteous Messiah. And He is the atoning offering that made the Way around our sin, but not the Way around ours alone, and also the Way around for the whole world. And in this we know that we know Him when we guard His commands. The one that claims to know Him and does not guard His commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that one. But whoever holds fast to His Word, in that one is truly the love of Elohim completed. In this way you know that you are in Him, speaking and continuing in Him, owing it to yourself also to walk the Way, just as He walked.” – 1 John 2:1-6, P4T

cross nail sacrifice Yahshua [Jesus] was the provision, the Way around sin, which was defined by YHWH, our Father. He is truly the Way, the only Way for the whole world [kosmos, the decoration of man’s system]. (John 8:12-58, 14:6; Acts 24:14-15; Isaiah 30:21) In words, John plays the Way around sin against walking the way around in life in general. We are to walk the Way around, just as Yahshua [Jesus] did. He made the Way around so that disciples could walk in their course of life in the same way. (“Understanding Sin“; “Encouraging Disciples of Light in the Way“)

Other religions have been seeking to define this truth their own way, to make this less than what it is, less than what He is, less than the Way. The same kind of thing is happening as multitudes are making the news lately about uniting under or alongside [interfaith] the “Catholic” church under the leadership of the pope. They would bequeath salvation to all in their own way, regardless of what scripture says. Regretfully, they are making their own way, imagining that they will build ‘God’s Kingdom’ in one form or the other, and that this is fully acceptable to the One they claim to serve. Their imagining of unity is of man, not the righteousness of YHWH. The One these profess to serve as a form of devotion is another gospel based on scripture, but not on the accuracy or truth of scripture. Instead, they prefer the traditions and fables of men, to bring others after themselves as leaders instead of exalting the Name of Elohim [‘God’, YHWH] or His purpose and righteousness. (Matthew 15:9; Mark 7:8-9; Acts 5:29; 1 Corinthians 2:5, 3:18-19; Titus 1:14-15) You need to give special attention to this in this time because multitudes are walking in the flesh in the name of unity to a nameless god of their own making. (“The Art of Self-Deception“; “Playing It Safe With Another Gospel“; “Consenting to Fables of Men“; “Paradosis: Teaching or Tradition?“)

“Therefore now, there is no condemnation for those in Messiah Yahshua, who do not walk after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Messiah Yahshua delivers me from the law of sin and death, for the reason that the law [Torah] was unable in that it was weak through the flesh. Elohim dispatched His Son in the form of sinful flesh, and [peri] making the Way around sin, judged against sin in the flesh in order that the righteousness of the law [Torah] be completed in us walking, not after the flesh, but to the contrary, after the Spirit.” – Romans 8:1-4, P4T

vatican-at-night-300x253By being set apart to your Heavenly Father and through your agreement with Him in scripture and Spirit, you are separated from false teachers and religious error. Because of this you have the need for discernment, as well as the need for the Set Apart Ruach [‘Holy Spirit’]. You need scripture and Ruach [Spirit] to help you to mature well in your trust, to be effectively marked [charagma] as a genuine disciple. In this way, you become a new man or woman in Messiah. (Matthew 22:142 Corinthians 6:171 Thessalonians 5:6-22; Romans 12:1-2; “Set Apart for Prayer & Seeking“; “Breaking Strongholds of False Authority“; “Culture: Prompting Falsehood Through the Lie“)

“These people draw near to Me with their mouth and respect Me with lips, but their heart is distant from Me. But in vanity they worship Me, teaching for instruction the commandments of men.” – Matthew 15:8-9, P4T

“Take heed that you separate yourselves from false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inside are ravening wolves. You will know to mark them by their fruit. Does anyone gather grapes from a thorn, or a fig from a brier? In this way, all beneficial trees bear honest fruit, but a worthless tree bears harmful fruit. A beneficial tree cannot bear harmful fruit, neither a worthless tree bear honest fruit. All trees that do not bear honest fruit are cut down and cast into fire. In this manner, by their fruit you will know them.

Not all that say to Me, ‘Master, Master,’ enter into the purpose of the Kingdom of Heaven. To the contrary, he that yields the purpose of My Father in Heaven. Many say to Me in that Day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and in Your Name cast out devils and in Your Name yielded many miracles? Then at that time I will agree with the authority of Heaven, them I never knew. You! Depart from Me ministers of wickedness.” – Matthew 7:15-23, P4T

“Indeed, follow Elohim’s work in you, pure and willing, even to work fervently in His purpose. Fulfill it completely, set apart from grumbling and debate, in order that you are set apart and innocent children of Elohim, without blame in the midst of a perverse and corrupt generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world of man.” – Philippians 2:13-15, P4T

narrow-path-track-righteousnessTo be set apart from the world and to Elohim is what each disciple of Messiah must be dedicated to. This is all about our Heavenly Father’s track of righteousness, which He has firmly established for His sons and daughters to walk on. This is a protected battlement of dedication that His dedicated people walk on, what Romans 8:29 actually refers to when translated properly. Those that follow this track of righteousness continue in His righteous Way. (James 1:4Ephesians 1:51 Corinthians 9:27Psalm 23:1-6119:105; “YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“; “Discernment the World Doesn’t Have“)

We are set apart with a purpose and the Way to walk! (Mark 16:15Matthew 10:16, 28:18-20Hebrews 3:1410:38-39; “Disciples: Focused on the Messiah & His Purpose“; “Your Purpose in the Body of Messiah“)

Disciples walk “as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts in your ignorance, instead, as the One who called you is set-apart, so you also should become set-apart in all behavior, because it has been written, ‘Be set-apart, for I am set-apart.’” – 1 Peter 1:14-16, ISR98

narrow gateIn this Way of obedience and love, each one walks this Way on an established track already laid out by the Father. There is only One Way to salvation. Each person has a decision to make, ‘free will’ to choose the path that he or she will follow – the narrow gate or the wide road to destruction. This is based on the heart condition of each person. Each one will decide whether he or she will be set apart or dedicated to the purpose of Elohim here on earth and into the Kingdom. (Mark 16:16John 3:514:6; Acts 4:10-131 Peter 3:21James 2:18-241 Timothy 3:11-121 John 5:11-122 Corinthians 5:17; “Supporting the Way or the World“)

“Enter in through the narrow gate. Because wide is the gate and spacious the road, put to death through destruction, and many, by their reason, agree to enter. For narrow is the gate and troublesome is the road, the one that leads to life, and few agree to obtain it.“ – Matthew 7:13-14, P4T

changing-the-showbread-templeThe minds and hearts of disciples [Christians] are set apart to Elohim as the showbread, exposed and dedicated to Him by our obedient and loving service. The frankincense is our praise and prayer as fragrant offerings to Him in living each day. With the Set Apart Ruach [Holy Spirit], disciples are also His temple, wholly dedicated to Him. It could be said that through our praise and offerings of prayer, we are kept fresh unto Him, abiding in His Presence through the Spirit, and as an example to the world. (“Abiding With YHWH in Quiet Places“; “The Great Apostasy of Unrighteousness“; “The Secret of Dedicated Disciples“)

Elohim’s track of righteousness, as previously established for all His people, is where His people are purposed or ‘destined’ to walk. This is the ‘predestination’ that so many Christian denominations teach about in error, as if YHWH predetermines the steps of all; as if good or bad men and women are robots without free choice. Your choice, your way of life is yours, with which you are judged. True disciples abide in YHWH through Yahshua [Jesus], walking in His established righteous Way. Remember, this Way was in place, as was His provision, long before the Messiah came as the Offering. Yahshua [Jesus] came to set disciples right before the throne of Elohim for all time, fully able to save those with a righteous heart of love, through Him and the Spirit that are set apart to YHWH.

monastic scribePerhaps now you can begin to see what has been hidden from so many Christians for so long. Evidence supports that this meaning was intentionally altered long ago, along with the concept of being set apart, either to righteousness or unrighteousness. Sure Christians talk about it in vague terms of good and bad, just as so many have been corrupted and taken sides with the enemy. A disciple of Messiah is to be set apart to the purpose of YHWH, through Yahshua [Jesus] and the Set Apart Ruach [Holy Spirit]. All others are judged as unrighteous, set apart to the judgment of the unrighteous eternally, set out to suffer destruction based on personal choice, the end result of each life course.

Yahshua [Jesus] is the Way! (John 3:36, 8:12, 31, 14:6, 15:5; Acts 4:12; 1 John 5:20; Philippians 2:9-11; Romans 10:9; 1 Timothy 2:5-6)

1 John 1:5-10 – Some Ideas on the Meaning of Sin

by John Greene

“Then this is the message that was understood from His Son and declared to you, that Elohim is light, and in Him is absolutely no darkness. When you say that you are partners with Him, then walk in darkness, you lie and are not doing the truth. But when you walk in the light, as He is in the light, you are partners with one another, and the blood of Yahshua Messiah His Son washes away all your sin. Whenever you say that you possess no sin, you go astray and the truth is not in you. When you agree that you have sinned, He is trustworthy and righteous, in order that your sin is forgiven. Then you are washed, separated from all unrighteousness. When you say that you have not wandered from His track of righteousness, you call Him a liar and His Word is not in you.” – 1 John 1:5-10, P4T

path - whose track of righteousnessSome of the definitions of sin are to be mistaken, to be in error, to miss the mark, or to violate Elohim’s [‘God’, YHWH] law. The most often missed meaning of sin is to wander from His path of uprightness. This is more properly expressed as failing to walk on Elohim’s track of righteousness, to fail to be in agreement with Him. What so many religious people miss about the Torah and the Old Covenant is Elohim’s righteousness. Instead, they substitute ritual purity and their own sense of honor or self-esteem. This tragedy in thinking has been going on since His ancient nation was delivered from Egypt. (“Purity Starts Inside: A Lesson Through the Ages“; “The Struggle for Purity of Heart“; “Discernment the World Doesn’t Have“)

“Evil men do not understand the rule of righteousness. Ask of YHWH and understand all.” – Proverbs 28:5, P4T

agreement with YHWHSimply put, to be in agreement with our Heavenly Father is righteousness. He is the One that defines sin, the measurer of sin. To be outside of agreement with Him is sin. His track of righteousness is “magalah” – a firmly established track, a rampart, entrenchment or circular trench in battle, a hedge of protection – as the ruts or trenches made by the wheels of carts – the Way of life determined by our Father. (“Disciples: His Showbread Walking Out His Righteousness“; “Unrighteous Chaff Set to Destruction“; “Knowing Where You Stand on YHWH’s Threshing Floor“)

“YHWH restores my being, guiding me in the track of His righteousness, because of His authority. In this way, as I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I revere no evil. Surely, You are upon me with your rod of correction and branch of support. They cause me to repent to Your comfort. You prepare a table before the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil. My portion is satisfaction. Surely, favor and kindness will run after me all the days of my life. I will remain in the temple of YHWH for all the ages.” – Psalm 23:3-6, P4T

narrow-path-track-righteousnessThe good news is that none of us needs to guess what this is. He is looking for loyalty in a world that is increasingly lacking loyalty. His track of righteousness that He has outlined in scripture is His established standard. He is light in a world of darkness. His beloved walk in His light rather than choosing darkness. Your loyalty to Elohim [‘God’, YHWH] is expressed in your consistent walk of righteousness in His love, which He has made possible through the Set Apart Ruach [Holy Spirit]. His righteousness doesn’t change. It is eternal and established. Our Father’s righteousness isn’t the morality or ethics of the world, nor is it simply religious patterns of thinking. It isn’t the kind of thinking displayed by the Pharisees, who were full of the leaven of idolatry and minimized sin. They worshiped rules, ritual and personal appearance as righteousness. In this way, they pretended to be righteous, even representing themselves as the “righteousness of God,” just as many do in this day. (Matthew 16:24-26; 1 John 3:5-10; Ezekiel 18:20-32; Deuteronomy 28:1-68; “The Image & Mark of the Beast System“; “Leaven of the Pharisees; Leaven of the World“; “Understanding Sin“)

“Enter in through the narrow gate. Because wide is the gate and spacious the road, put to death through destruction, and many, by their reason, agree to enter. For narrow is the gate and troublesome is the road, the one that leads to life, and few agree to obtain it.“ – Matthew 7:13-14, P4T

1 John 3:4 reminds us that sin is lawlessness, or being apart from Elohim’s law, His righteousness. (1 John 5:17-21) Sin is anything that is contrary to what the Word of YHWH commands or forbids. The tendency is to corrupt righteousness with the knowledge of the world and the legalism of man, the agency of sin and Satan. Yahshua [Jesus] came to save those that are willing to listen, obey, and respond in love to His commands; to replace that imperfect provision of the old nation of Israel. He washes His beloved clean, through the Word and through His Ruach [Spirit]. “What is Washing by the Word?“; “Christians, Tyranny & the Man of Lawlessness“; “The Myth of Christian Governance“; “A Work of Renewal & Completion“)

Sin, regardless of how that sin is expressed, always has an effect. It separates from YHWH, the power of the Set Apart Ruach [Holy Spirit], as well as most earthly relationships. The original sin in the garden of Eden was destructive. Satan disguised his craft against YHWH as ‘knowledge,’ just as man has done through the ages. Since that moment, all of mankind, descended from the original couple has had the curse of death hanging over their heads; all because of separation from YHWH. (“Bible Truth About Death“; “Deception of Ages: How People Are Deceived“; “Being Renewed: Putting Down Deception“; “Filling Your Life With Truth Instead of Deception“)

Set Apart RuachYahshua [Jesus] is the remedy for the eternal judgment of sin that leads to death. The remedy starts with belief, trusting fully in the provision of YHWH through the Messiah while becoming renewed [regenerated] in character of being set apart to Him through His Ruach [Holy Spirit]. While all are subject to die physically in this age, the provision of the Messiah brings new life in YHWH’s Kingdom, beginning with the life that you live today. (John 8:40-44; 1 John 2:15-17; Ephesians 2:3)

“When we agree with righteousness [homologeo] as to our sins, He is trustworthy and right to forgive the sin, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.“ – 1 John 1:9,P4T

Bible knowledgeAcknowledging sin is the first step to turning aside from it. In this way, believers have the assurance YHWH can be counted on to keep His Word, through His justice and righteousness based on His standards. He has paid the price through His Son, which forgives the temporary insanity of unrighteousness and cleanses, all through active trust. The provision of Jesus is fully able to cleanse you completely from anything that doesn’t agree with YHWH’s character. Trust is the bedrock of righteous relationship with YHWH, with the power and guidance of the Set Apart or Dedicated Ruach or Spirit. (“The Great Apostasy of Unrighteousness“; “The Success of a Real Christian“; “Foundation of Salvation“; “Life Healing & Belief“; “Trusting in YHWH Instead of Princes“)

false religious valuesThe Greek word ‘kosmos’ does not refer to the universe as modern man often expresses. The kosmos of mankind is his own orderly arrangement, the decoration of a sinful community that is eternally doomed through man’s governance. This sinful humanity is a rebellion against YHWH: “all the world (kosmos) lies in the wicked one.” (1 John 5:19) Because of rebellious opposition to YHWH, the world values things apart from Him. This governance can tempt the believer that trusts in YHWH and His provision, to reject that provision and salvation by accepting the corruption of man’s world. As you are made new through the provision of the Father’s Ruach [Holy Spirit], you can begin to discern the corruption of mankind and put aside the corruption that you have previously accepted for His righteousness. (James 5:1-20; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; Hebrews 6:1-20; “Breaking Strongholds of False Authority“; “The Role of Authority in Your Life“; “The Wheels of Ezekiel“; “Millenniums of Human Exploitation“; “Leadership & the Universal Authority of Messiah“)

Through the power of the Set Apart Ruach [Holy Spirit] and your personal agreement, you achieve spiritual growth, a closer relationship through prayer, personal study and witnessing to others. You don’t allow yourself to succumb continually to the temptation of the flesh. In scripture, ‘in the flesh’ is used to express the baseness of human nature when measured with Father YHWH’s righteousness. (Romans 8:7-10; Galatians 5:16, 19-20; Colossians 1:13) Through the Ruach or Spirit, disciples can possess ‘another nature.’ Two kingdoms fight for your soul or means of existence, even inside of your thoughts through the iniquity of sin. Yet, you and YHWH’s Spirit have the power to overcome, to be set apart, dedicated to Him through Ruach [Spirit] and for you to produce spiritual fruit of righteousness. This requires a moment-to-moment dependence, an always present trust in YHWH and His power that operates through you. (2 Peter 3:7; Matthew 22:29; John 14:15, 26; 1 John 4:1; 1 Corinthians 6:11; Hebrews 10:26; Romans 15:4)

“Either consider the tree beneficial, and its fruit beneficial, or consider the tree rotten, and its fruit rotten. For a tree is known by its fruit.” – Matthew 12:33, P4T

Living as Partners & Friends in Messiah Through Provision

“I announce to you what was from the beginning, what was heard, what was seen by our eyes, what was discerned, and our hands have touched through the Word of life. And the life was clearly shown, for we have seen and witnessed, and declared to you everlasting life which was with the Father, and clearly shown in us. What was seen and heard we have declared to you in order that you may also be partners together with us. And now you are partners with the Father and with His Son Yahshua Messiah. And we write to you in order that our joy, which is in you, would be fully accomplished.” – 1 John 1:1-5, P4T

Bible knowledgeHere, John is speaking of the permanent and visible witness that Yahshua [Jesus] made in His time on earth to those around Him as the Word made flesh. John was also speaking as a personal witness. Everything done since that time has been accomplished for the pursuit of one purpose, telling others so that they could hear about His provision for all that were willing to hear with their minds and hearts. Each beloved disciple is a partner with Him in the light, in exposing the darkness of the world to the light of the Way, the truth of Elohim’s salvation for His repentant sons and daughters. This is the ultimate relationship and expression of love. (“xDisciples: Focused on the Messiah & His Purpose“; “Your Purpose in the Body of Messiah“)

In life, many people come to understand that the important matters in life are not things, but the ties, personal connections, partners, the friends that we have. Our Father has put a natural desire for personal ties of friendship in each one of us, a natural inclination that He created to be met with other people. This is an earthly model for the personal connection that He wants with each disciple [student, follower, Christian]. John reminds the assembly of disciples about the truth and importance of personal ties, demonstrating how to have friends that are real, as each of us prepares for His Sovereignty to come. (“Agape: Discipleship is Renewal“; “Grace, His Protective Love & You“; “Disciples & the Occult of the World“)

small Bible studyInside of this concept of being partners for the same purpose in the Messiah is telling the truth to others and putting down deception and lies with the light of truth revealed by our Heavenly Father through His Son. To many, this seems to be nothing new – yet, the Word becoming flesh is the boldest, most necessary, and truly important provision ever made to a world of sin and death. Yahshua [Jesus] pitched His tent and lived among mankind, giving Himself for the sin of the world. People witnessed this provision firsthand to share with those of us that would believe in this part of the age. This is a provision of love through His Ruach [Spirit], just as the overflowing of love in the lives of disciples to others is also love, even as His provision continues to be revealed into His Sovereignty. (“Supporting the Way or the World“; “Foundation of Salvation“; “Roots of Salvation“)

A Work of Renewal and Completion

amazing protective love
by John Greene

“Be sober, keep awake, because your adversary the devil is as a roaring lion, prowling, plotting whom to devour. Resist him, firm in the belief, aware that the same hardships are experienced by your brothers in the world. Then the Elohim [‘God’, YHWH] of all protective love calls us into His everlasting exaltation in Yahshua [Jesus] Messiah. After suffering for a season, you are thoroughly renewed, set firmly, strengthened and grounded.”  – 1 Peter 5:8-10, Project for Truth

Set Apart RuachDisciples of the Messiah have been set right through the sacrifice of the Son. Yet, we are undergoing a work of both renewal and completion as we learn to live out our days in His Spirit. We are in a season of refining, as well as a time of completing and renewing through both our Father’s protective love and the fire of trial. This isn’t about punishment, like many teach, but about learning to depend on Him. Suffering isn’t forever, nor is life an obstacle course of torture, but time for us to listen, to learn, to understand, and appreciate what has been done and what is being done. This time is evidence of His protective love, as each human being is given the opportunity to draw closer to Elohim, to love Him and learn to obey what He says as we grow to maturity. Each of us is being brought closer, not through suffering, but through endurance and patience – through trust, through relationship in prayer and Spirit. (“Foundation of Salvation“; “Grace, His Protective Love & You“; “Holy Spirit 101“; “Set Apart for Prayer & Seeking“; “Refining Your Heart“; “YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“)

He has shown His people the Way in scripture and Spirit. In this Way, as spiritual partners, we are ultimately brought into exaltation with our Savior, as heirs and friends, integral members in His Sovereignty. This is about magnifying and exalting His Name and Authority, as each of us lives this out in His Spirit. We are saved in personal trust, our belief in a gift through Him. We are saved by His personal protective love. He truly cares for us. (John 1:17, 6:44; Romans 3:24, 28, 5:2, 11:6; Ephesians 1:7, 2:5-9, 4:7; Galatians 2:21; 2 Corinthians 9:8, 12:9; Titus 2:11, 3:7; 2 Timothy 1:9; 1 Peter 1:13; “Looking Fresh to YHWH Each Day“; “A Matter of Grace“; “The Grace of YHWH’s Vineyard“; “Being Renewed: Putting Down Deception“; “Exchanging Delusion for Regeneration“)

“Blessed is the Supreme Elohim and Father, and the Master, Yahshua [Jesus] the Messiah, who according to His great compassion, bore us into one purpose; a living expectation through the resurrection of Yahshua the Messiah from the dead into a continuing inheritance, even undefiled and unfading, guarded in the heavens for us. By the power of Elohim, we are protected through belief into deliverance, ready to be revealed in the last season.” – 1 Peter 1:3-5, Project for Truth

“…because it is written, ‘Be set apart because I am set apart.’ And when you appeal to your Father, who judges without partiality according to the acts of every man, spend your time as a foreigner on this earth with respect, knowing that you were not ransomed with corruptible silver or gold out of your purposeless manner of life inherited from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Messiah, even as a sacrificial lamb without blemish or spot.” – 1 Peter 1:17-19, Project for Truth

“But you are kin of election, righteous priests set apart as a people, as purchased possessions a people that declare the valor of the One that calls you out of darkness into His wonderful light.” – 1 Peter 2:9, Project for Truth

“Now when the righteousness and kindness towards man by Elohim [‘God’, YHWH] our Savior came to light, not by works through the loving restoration of righteousness which we have lived, yet according to His love saved us through the washing of regeneration and being made new in the Set Apart Spirit [‘Holy Spirit’], which He poured out on us abundantly through Yahshua [Jesus] Messiah our Savior. These are set right in His protective love, being heirs according to the expectation of eternal life, believing the Word and the things that I am willing to affirm thoroughly to you, because trusting in Elohim thoughtfully stands over beneficial works. These works are worthy and profitable to man.” – Titus 3:4-8

The Myth of Christian Governance

by John Greene

bible-trust-YHWH-1An earthly lineage of Christians is a myth. Nobody is truly born a disciple of the Messiah. To become a disciple is a matter of the heart and mind, a matter of personal decision, lifestyle and purpose. It’s certainly not a corporate decision, or one that can be ruled by a group. Scripture is a direct illustration of this proof. Even Yahshua [Jesus] indicated that salvation is personal. Men have invented the rest, even much of the religious ritual that many consider to be the bedrock of their faith. In the world that we live in, any person or organization can claim to be a Christian, and many do. This does not make it so, even if the world does love labels. (Matthew 10:32-42; Luke 9:25, 13:3; Acts 4:12; Hebrews 3:8-11; Revelation 2:11; Jeremiah 32:30; Psalm 78:10-11, 40-42, 56-62; 2 Kings 17:7-8, 18-20; 1 Kings 14:15; 1 Samuel 13:14, 16:7; Amos 9:8; Deuteronomy 4:19, 28:1-68; “Authority: The Real Meaning of Romans 13“; “Foundation of Salvation“; “Consenting to Fables of Men“)

american exceptionalism vanityIn the same way, a nation of people cannot be Christian. Yet, many blow as loud as trumpets in announcing that the United States (or other nations) is Christian – or that it should be. This may be similar in your country – or not. For the longest time, ‘American values’ have been considered by many to be ‘Christian values’. Yet, they never have been, certainly in the sense of scripture – which can be the only measure. How many ‘Christians’ actually read and understand their Bible? This lack of knowledge has created an opportunity. Politicians and religious leaders have attempted to hijack this label of ‘faith’ for their own purposes. A closer look reveals hijacking to be the lie that it is, unless of course, you believe ‘God’ to be the equivalent of the modern incarnation of the American Santa Claus. That description likely fits many of you. (2 Timothy 1:9; 2 Peter 3:9; Titus 2:11-12; Romans 5:18-19, 10:10; Psalm 62:1; Genesis 12:3; “Empire Under the Beast“; “Supporting the Way or the World“; “Delusion & the Tightening Noose of the Beast System“; “Exchanging Delusion for Regeneration“)

Set Apart RuachRemember, to be a disciple is a matter of the heart and mind, a move of Elohim’s Spirit, the Set Apart Ruach [‘Holy Spirit‘]. To be a disciple is to become a new person in the Messiah through the Spirit, learning to express brotherly love and to engage in His Purpose. The idea of brotherly love is often only a convenience in this disassociated world. Even more strange is that fewer than 25% of US Christians even believe in a ‘Holy Spirit’, so personal credibility of being a ‘Christian’ is further strained. Based on polls, nearly an even majority of ‘professed Christians’ don’t believe in Satan either, and by appearances – even a real principle of evil beyond a worldly system of justice. These live in obedience to the world as their master. The majority work to make business corporations, religious corporations and government corporations wealthy, and most often give a small token to someone else to do what they call ‘Christian ministry’. (Matthew 10:22; Mark 13:13; John 14:15-17, 26, 16:12-15; James 1:22-27; Colossians 3:1-14; “Dealing with Separation From Personal Well-Being“; “Holy Spirit 101“; “Christians, Tyranny & the Man of Lawlessness“)

false religious valuesIn the case of the United States, many have pretended to export these ‘Christian values’ over the world, much as Roman Catholics and others have, with the idea of taking this world for ‘God’. This kind of viewpoint is not new. These delusional characters have only succeeded in modeling the world after themselves, yet another idolatry in the face of Father YHWH. Human history shows this kind of religious conquest is an illusion, especially when compared with living as Yahshua [Jesus] instructed. The lifestyle of the Messiah doesn’t make anyone rich or powerful. It brings a disciple success in the eyes of the Father rather than the world. (Philippians 4:8-9; 1 Peter 4:13; Galatians 5:1-7, 19-26, 6:7-8; Revelation 7:17; “Choosing to Serve YHWH, Not Man“; “The Antichrist & War on Reality“; “Disciples of Messiah & the Authority of Man“)

Many of the wicked are big pretenders, in reality bad shepherds that look only after themselves. (Ezekiel 34:1-31; 1 Timothy 1:18-19; Hebrews 3:15-16 ) Many want to believe in the myth of Christian governance because national, political and religious idolatry seems easier and more appealing than obtaining and walking the narrow road provided by YHWH – if they know about this at all. (Matthew 7:13-14; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; “Chasing Useless Pursuits“; “Encouraging Disciples of Light in the Way“; “The Idolatry Factor“; “The False Shepherd & the True Shepherd“; “Which Shepherd Do You Believe?“)

“Take heed that you separate yourselves from false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inside are ravening wolves. You will know to mark them by their fruit. Does anyone gather grapes from a thorn, or a fig from a brier? In this way, all beneficial trees bear honest fruit, but a worthless tree bears harmful fruit. A beneficial tree cannot bear harmful fruit, neither a worthless tree bear honest fruit. All trees that do not bear honest fruit are cut down and cast into fire. In this manner, by their fruit you will know them.

Not all that say to Me, ‘Master, Master,’ enter into the purpose of the Kingdom of Heaven. To the contrary, he that yields the purpose of My Father in Heaven. Many say to Me in that Day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and in Your Name cast out devils and in Your Name yielded many miracles? Then at that time I will agree with the authority of Heaven, them I never knew. You! Depart from Me ministers of wickedness.” – Matthew 7:15-23, Project for Truth

teaching truth or fiction?Instead, multitudes have bought into delusions they long to believe, a way to unite with others in a ‘glorious cause’. The trumpeters of the ugly myth of American Exceptionalism and the guardians of nationalistic fables rise up, not simply because they feel fearful, but because they see an opportunity to glean the gullible and ignorant, while placing their philosophical stamp on them. Other peoples and nations mistakenly buy into these notions as well. In this time, many are rising up against what they they see – perhaps even seeing these fables for what they truly are. The truth is that the emperor has no clothes, but in this day the emperor doesn’t need them. Evidence supports that most Americans believe in the ‘deist God’ that never intervenes in human matters, leaving all of us to our own devices. This is the same kind of ‘God’ that most of the founders believed in when they wrote the founding documents, so if anything, the nation has come full circle, if it ever went anywhere to begin with. That’s the way that delusion works on the imaginings of the mind. Delusion justifies and rationalizes until it comes crashing down from the weight of the lies that possess it. That is where this nation and the world is coming to rest, resulting in a period of great unrest and upheaval. Global governance is next fable of power to be shown for what it is. (John 4:24, 8:44; Hebrews 10:35-39; Colossians 2:8; 1 Peter 5:8-9; “Deception of Ages: How People Are Deceived“; “The Parthenon & the Spirit of Humanism“; “The Magi of this Age“)

“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.
