I came across a piece of artwork from a man of flesh yesterday. It said:
The person’s name is omitted because the SINNER is covered by the blood of Messiah, which is his Love for the Father’s correction. True love covers all sinners, but the SIN is exposed by the Love of Messiah upon the brethren whom he is correcting.
The person who put this post did so proudly on a well-known social media site, in self-righteousness. They plastered their name and name of their ministry proudly across their very fleshly and prideful post. This is a shepherd who has already been spoken to by their bride, but they cast the bride from their congregation because she didn’t align herself with their fleshly words. She was busy aligning herself with the Spirit of the Word made flesh in her to follow a fleshly leader. The shepherd in this case, has enmity against the bride of Messiah. They have enmity against the woman. They are following the serpent of flesh. As a result, they bruised the heel, the walk of the woman and man of flesh.
Yet that same woman or man, that bride will crush the head, the mindset and wrong thinking and wrong words spewed out of the mouth of the fleshly serpent, the wolf who wears sheep’s clothing. The wolf-like shepherd, the hireling will be exposed.
If you look at the image again, you will see that only the head of the sheep is a wolf. The rest of the body is still a sheep. That is the symbol that the leader has the thinking of a wolf. It is wrong thinking. they have the mark of the beast as their head. What is on the head of a wolf? It is a black mark, a raven.
The raven is an unclean beast. It takes one familiar with the Word made flesh to have eyes to see the uncleanness of the teachings of men of flesh. You have to have known the wolf in order to see what he looks like, to point out the wolf that comes to devour the sheep. Take a close look at the leadership and then take a close look at yourself. Remember Cain? Sin was crouching at his door. He had to master it, but he didn’t. He killed his brethren. That’s the wolf. He gives an offering that is unholy. It isn’t what the Father wants. He wants us to love one another as we love ourselves. But that’s not what the wolf does. He kills his brethren.
Isn’t it interesting that when a wolf hunts, he peers into the sky to see if there are birds of prey flying overhead? They lead him to the freshly killed or dying animals of flesh. That’s a whole other teaching for us right there. While the father wolf brings the freshly killed prey to the family, it is the mother who teaches the children how to feed — what to eat and what to discard. The father is the killer. The mother is the nurturer. The father teaches how to kill. The mother teaches the children how to love. Don’t discount the role of the mother in teaching a young Yahusha Messiah how to have wisdom, mercy and forgiveness. After all, she was first forgiven by her own husband when the Holy Spirit overshadowed her with a future King when she submitted to the law of the King of creation and to the law of the land.
The very first bride chastises her fleshly husband (Adam) after they both sin because he didn’t bother to teach her the consequences of her actions beforehand. Adam knew there were consequences to his actions. He already had the opportunity to name all of the creatures and to see what life looked like before the first woman was removed from his side as he slept. He knew cause and effect, but chose to ignore it. Adam had far more experience than his wife, in how to be flesh.
He should have taught her what he knew. Instead he stood back and allowed her to touch and eat of the tree, without warning her or teaching or preventing her. He allowed her to learn through her ignorance. He didn’t love her enough to stop her. Or maybe he actually did, even though he wasn’t really aware that was God through him. She was just the first to learn the lesson of love. Now she is the true teacher and it is her role to teach the man the lesson of the wrong choices they have both made together–her out of ignorance and him because he knew better but chose not to do better by her. He didn’t love his wife. So she returns to show him how to love and what forgiveness looks like.
A true husbandman teaches a bride how to truly love. The true husbandman isn’t the man. It’s the Word made flesh in man by the woman of faith. It’s their Son. The mother dies to self and tastes the fruit of the tree so that if anyone is going to die, it will be her, so that the husband (and she) can live through the Son (or sons and daughters). What does Adam do? He didn’t die to himself. He allows the woman to eat of the tree.
The beautiful lesson is this. When we truly love, even when someone makes a mistake, we die to ourself and our own pride and return to the one who has enmity toward us. Then we teach them with love and patience, what true love looks like. It isn’t calling people wolves. It isn’t calling people out as if we are God. It is allowing God to work his way within each person. It is also allowing ourselves to hear from others who have the Holy Spirit within them, because he sends them to teach us powerful lessons about love and about our lack of same. God is able to save anyone he desires to save. His arm isn’t too short to save. He doesn’t need our help, except to teach others that we must listen for his voice and then obey what he tells us to do…at all cost. So here is the true lesson:
He turns the Word around on the one who is calling out the shepherds. And the result is that you can see both sides of the word made flesh when it is sent by fleshly people. Then he will give you a higher heart and mind so that you can see beyond all of that fleshliness. He gives you his heart and mind, his love, his wisdom and his revelation, by his Spirit. And when he does this, he will show you his hidden things in the Word, as well as within yourself. Your job is to remain humble, repentant and to give what he gives you to give and ponder what he gives you to ponder. Wait until he tells you to move, and then hear and obey him.
Anyone who truly studies the Scriptures and who truly knows the Father’s love and his Messiah, will find a mindset that calls other people “wolves” to be one of a babe in the Word. It is really a childish mindset. The first example of artwork calling people out is the mindset of a babe. The second example of artwork calling those who call others out, is a young child’s mindset. The babe’s word isn’t from a heart that is mature in the Love of Messiah, or someone who has the heart of the Father and his Holy Spirit within them. They may have a heart toward the Father, but they still need their faith to develop so that they may receive the Holy Spirit upon them. They are doing portions of the Word, Torah portions. They haven’t received the Spirit of Messiah yet. Their faith is immature (and so is their Spirit).
The one who can call the fleshly leaders out in a righteous way, can see both sides of the coin. They can render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s (flesh) and unto God what is God’s (Spirit). They have the Spirit of the risen Messiah upon them. But he is still a young child teaching in the temple. They still have some growth to undertake. It is a process of growing in the resurrected Messiah. We begin as babes. Our faith must grow to a level where we can truly receive his Spirit. Then we must begin to walk out what he teaches us, as a young child, and remain in his Word daily and under his voice, so that we can learn of all of his ways, and then reproduce like righteous fathers and mothers. But even they know not to call anyone “father” except the Father in Heaven. They follow the Son. They are righteous sons and daughters of the risen Messiah.
The true shepherd is Messiah Yahusha a/k/a Jesus. It isn’t men who have been called but who have yet to leave their flesh and their sins behind. They are men and women who may mean well and are doing the best they can, but they still have enmity. They still have issues with grudges, and unforgiveness that they haven’t healed. We must forgive them and teach them to forgive themselves. And we must pray for them.
If you are a true shepherd, you WON’T call people wolves. You will see everyone as a lamb because you have the Spirit of the Lamb within you. If you do call other people wolves, and you go around “calling them out,” then you have a heart that is exactly like a hireling. You have a hasty heart. You are quick to judge others when the one you should be judging is yourself. Hirelings are like the shepherds who heard a word from an angel and who goes to run in HASTE to the first person who looks anything like the word they have just received.
Just look at what happened to the shepherds on a certain starry night. They heard from an angel, the following news:
Luke 2:11For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
Look at the ONE sign that they were given:
Luke 2:12And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
Everything happens so quickly, doesn’t it? That includes the interpretations of men of flesh who don’t take time to ponder things in their heart, like the mother of Jesus, Mary pondered. Men tend to rush out into battle, without staying behind to listen to the captain of the army of the hosts, who would tell them the plan if they just waited on him.
Luke 2:14 – Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
There is Glory to be given to the Most High God. There is peace that is given to men on earth. There is a good will. It is the testimony of a risen Messiah that we are to wait upon as our inheritance. But men of flesh go out and seek that which seems right to them, instead of what is right. They contest the good will, for one that is bad. They forsake eternal life for their love of enmity (sin). They don’t know Father’s Love at all, his Messiah. The result of all of their efforts is that they spoil the field. The King of Sodom makes them rich. They aren’t like Abram at all, who wanted none of the spoils of the kingdom of Sodom. He allowed his foot soldiers to keep what they had already received, but he himself wanted nothing of the field.
Even God considered Abram righteous. Why? It was because he didn’t want any inheritance from the land. He had his heart and his mind set upon a higher inheritance. It is an inheritance of a good will. Understand that nothing we have down here on this tangible Earth is intended to be our inheritance. That’s because all of the Earth has been corrupted by the hands of men who are flesh, but who have the spirit of the god of enmity. That spirit is from that old dragon, the serpent, Satan. He is the one who wanders to and fro seeking all he can devour. We have to remember the Sabbath. That is a “day” of rest. But that day is the one that the Lord both created and made. It is someone that was spoken into existence by the Creator.
Isaiah 56:6 – Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant;
That Sabbath is a “HIM.” I is the name of the LORD. Keeping the Sabbath is being his servant. It means to do what he tells you to do. That covenant he serves is his covenant of promise to resurrect the dead who love and serve the Father through the Son. But we have all been far too hasty. We completely miss the finer points of the Scriptures. We miss the good judgments of the Father. We are too busy pondering on the bad judgments, the judgments of death upon sinners. We need to repent! We need to be more selective and properly divide the Word, like the Chaldean “wise” men did, not like the Shepherds of the field did. And yet, we will see that even so, in the end, what they did was still “acceptable.” The acceptable year of the Lord after all, is the six days of the week “weak” who preach what they think is righteousness. On the seventh day, the Sabbath, the Father sends his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, who has his anointed Spirit upon and within him. And on that Sabbath, everyone is supposed to rest so that the Sabbath of the Father, the Son’s Spirit, can teach them about true righteousness, himself. But the people are still like the shepherds of the field in Jesus’ day.
Luke 2:15 – And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
The shepherds never prayed and asked God what the angelic visit actually meant. Instead, in their zeal, the shepherds leave their flocks, like hasty hirelings. They don’t have any real concern for the sheep. They just leave them to the wolves in the field, to pursue their own idea of what they think the sign is that the Lord made known unto them. They don’t wait upon the Lord to reveal himself to them. The men don’t ponder.
Luke 2:16 – And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
They were to seek and find a SINGLE babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. Maybe that’s what they found. Maybe they found something else. Maybe they found three people lying in the manger. Go back and read it! It says Mary AND Joseph AND the babe.
Isaiah 56:9 – All ye beasts of the field, come to devour, yea, all ye beasts in the forest.
Those beasts are men who come to devour the men, women and children. They are the hunters and the gatherers. They are the men of the field. They are all like Esau. They sell their birthright and blessings for two bowls of pottage. The first one is to satisfy their flesh. The second one is to try to obtain their blessing through deception of their brother and their mother — their brethren. The usurper shepherd (Jacob) is obedient to his mother who is a liar and an idolater (go ahead and search it out). He steals Esau’s birthright and blessing through bribery, theft, lies and deception.
Shame on him! If he had truly loved his brethren, he would have never done that to him. He only wanted what he wanted. And yet in the beauty of all of that mess, both men were honoring their father or their mother, even if their father was blind and ignorant and their mother was a crafty liar and manipulator. Do you remember what Jesus said?
Isaiah 56:10 – His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.
Isaiah 56:11 – Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.
Even Isaac was sitting in his tent, blind and old, lusting after food for his own belly. We all just imagine that Esau was unaware that his brother Jacob was after his blessing. We have been taught that Esau didn’t care about his birthright at all, for the bowl of pottage. But what did he say? He asked Jacob:
Genesis 25:32 – And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?
Esau knew that a birthright on this Earth has no value once a person is dead, if it belongs to the land here. However, remember that there is a three-fold cord lying in that manger. There is a substitute father, but one who endeavors to protect the child at all cost. That isn’t what the “fathers” (hirelings) here on Earth do for their congregants who don’t agree with what they are teaching (for the most part). They don’t know how to love the way that Joseph did. Look at what happens. We aren’t told what happens to Joseph. After Jesus’ birth, he kind of disappears. And yet we learn by extrapolation that he and Mary had children together, for Jesus had brothers and sisters. Or did he? It is hard to tell, because he could be referring to those who do the will of his Father.
The “truth” or “lie” that the shepherds believed that they had found “the” king is what we’ve all been taught. It’s the story of them finding a babe in a manger, but not one that included his parents, Mary and Joseph. That’s an interesting idea, because there is truth amidst the true mother and the substitute father. All three were lying in a manger as a three-fold cord. From a hasty perspective, the people who view the shepherds see only a babe in a manger. But if you really meditate on the Word, you can see there are three people lying there.
The mother and father of flesh (and the Father in the Spirit) swaddle the babe who is Spirit in flesh while he is first born. He is the Father’s first born son. That doesn’t mean any man can act like a father and be the babe’s father. It means that those who do the will of the Father (like Joseph) can be a substitute father for a season of the babe’s growth, and then they will quietly lie in the background going about tending to their own flock (family) as the Heavenly Father’s Spirit takes over within the babe, the Son of the Father, who goes on to teach the little children all about real love and sacrifice (like Joseph).
The flesh of all babes must die and his faith grow in Father’s Spirit. The Earthly parents cover the babes while they are young. When the babe grows up, he covers all of his forsaken flesh, his brethren (sinners who repent) with his resurrected Spirit.
There is a much higher Word still that has to do with the three-fold cord and our righteousness covering all who have been forsaken in the grave (as their namesake). Even that is trumped by the highest name of all — Jesus Christ. He saves all of the living and the dead. This full Word is not yet ripe enough to be fed to the world, but will be soon. It’s a new song and a new Son. But let’s let you all think on these things for a season.
Here’s what happened to the “wise” men from Chaldea. They are Chaldeans, Syrians. They are stargazers and men who study the signs. They followed a star and ended up at the house of a young child. It took them longer to get there because they pondered as they travelled. They were able to discern the true heart of Herod. As a result, they didn’t leave the way they had come. They were transformed by a young child in a house and by the stony heart of a king who kills the babes. They could see things differently than the hirelings, the shepherds.
Matthew 2:11 – And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.
There was no manger. There was only a house. The wise men found the house that Father God was building in his Son. Did the shepherds then get it wrong? No, they didn’t. Only the hirelings were told to seek a babe in a manger. They sought but they found Mary and Joseph and the babe lying in the manger. What they thought they saw was a lie, and that’s what people have picked up from the Word — the lie of the hirelings.
The wise men didn’t see a babe in a manger. They saw a young child in a house. That young child didn’t have a fleshly father standing around them. That child was only with the disciple that Yahusha loved — his mother. He has a Spiritual Father. So, were the fleshly shepherd/hirelings wrong? Not entirely. They had something that was partially right. They just couldn’t see the fullness of the Word that was lying before them, so they believed a lying babe. Well, actually, they believed the lies of other fleshly men.
Those men didn’t mean to lie. They were just hastily feeding from the troughs of other people. The truth is that any way you look at it, perspective and timeliness is everything. If you don’t spend time in the Word, you won’t see that the babe is lying there with two others, his fleshly parents Mary and Joseph covering him. And yet even when that three-fold cord, a united family is lying in a manger to keep one another warm, the truth is much higher than that. The three-fold cord is the Song of Heaven. It is the Word in its organic Spirit and truth. It isn’t tainted by the noises of men without the Holy Spirit.
The Father sends the babe to serve the children, the adults of the world, and they kill him because they don’t believe in him. And yet even in so doing, they recognize the babe in the manger even after he is gone. But he doesn’t really die. His blood and water and Spirit are poured out onto the ground. He has never left us nor forsaken us. He has been here from the beginning, because everything that has ever been created, is spoken by the Father’s living Word. Nothing that contains his life and breath truly dies. It is all transformed by the Spirit of his Living Word. Sing a new Song–His!
God makes all things work together for the good of all who love and serve him. You see, he knows that we just don’t know. We can’t know him until we seek him and receive him. We can’t imagine the things of the Spirit because we are still in the flesh. So he has to send a helper, his Holy Spirit, to help us see the things of the Spirit. And still, even that is a learning process of exercising what we hear and are shown, and walking in that by faith.
We are all still learning and growing, all of our lives. No one is able to judge another person or their righteousness, except by their fruits. But those fruits can’t be judged hastily. That’s because if you judge a tree by the first fruit that you find on it, you will judge that tree as inedible. That’s because the first fruits are yet unripe. You’ll walk away from that tree and then you will discount it as unripe or even rotten.
The underlying problem is our rotten human heart. We judge from a condition of our own heart. You are a babe. You can’t see yet that the fruit takes time to ripen, so you reject it and the one trying to hand it to you. You judge the person, not the Word in that person. You have already forgotten that the Father creates good and evil. You think that everything you do is yours and that all that other people do is theirs. That’s not right or righteous. The result is that because of your own pride, you reject the fruit and you never return to the tree in the right season to see that it truly has ripe fruit!
What did Jesus say:
Luke 12:56 – Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?
You think you can discern the Word, but you can’t even discern the faces of those who are attempting to speak the Word by his Spirit in them. You judge them as fleshly faces that haven’t yet fully grown in the Word. Some of them are already growing. But most of those faces aren’t yet mature. They believe they are, but they haven’t been transformed into Word made flesh themselves. Their hearts are still hard toward the brethren. They separate themselves from others as if they are holy and sanctified, when they aren’t. You cannot make yourself holy or sanctified by your works, without the Love of the Father in the midst of them! You need Messiah’s Spirit to sanctify you and make you holy. Without him and without Father’s love, you have nothing and can be nothing but dead flesh.
These people are too busy preaching that the Word made flesh already came, to understand and embrace that they must become Word made flesh themselves. We all must become part of the body of Messiah, which is Father’s forgiving mercy and love. You may have to come back at a more mature season. You may have come across them in a season where they are way over or under ripe. Perhaps their fruit is already rotten because they reject the truth. You can’t reject them! You must love them. That doesn’t mean “shake the dust” from people who love and serve the Lord! It means that you should shake the dust from your dusty old ways of thinking and open your heart to the Love of Messiah by the Holy Spirit within you. You must love and pray for people anyway. You don’t cut them off or you will be cut off!
The Spirit of Messiah is here to open the eyes of the blind.
You need the Spirit of Messiah upon and within you, to learn the true meaning of the Word, and to be able to discern the Word and the world around you so that you may teach it at the level that he desires of us. It takes a humble cupbearer to drink the cup first before he or she can serve that cup and all that is within it, to the King. If you aren’t willing to first taste the water of the Word you are serving, to see if it has been poisoned with the words of flesh first, then you aren’t a true cupbearer to the King. The water you serve must bring life. It must produce something in yourself and in others who will drink it. It must reproduce. It must be fruitful and multiply the Word made flesh in all who drink it.
All that the Father provides is his Firstfruit. That’s what he said and gave in the beginning. Re’shyith. It’s his first and best of all that he is and does and can ever be. It isn’t his wrath. It’s his eternal love, mercy and forgiveness. That is what he delights in. That’s his Son, Yahusha, who when he was resurrected, was named by men of today, men who are living as Jesus Christ. Anyway you say his name, is the power of the Father’s love. But fleshly men and women get hung up on the days gone by, of days of fleshly men who died and how to say “the name.” Arise and walk in Jesus Christ, the Son of the God of the Living. The god of the Old ways, the foundations of the faith was a God of wrath upon sinners. That was a god of division, of killing, of blood upon rebellion. You don’t want to recall that god of the rebellious to the Earth. You want to align with the God of the Living. That’s a God who is in the Son, the Love and Mercy for sinners who repent.
Things happen to us because we are too hasty with the Word. That’s the simple truth. We must wait on him to reveal what he desires to teach us, in his timing. That’s his love and mercy and forgiveness of self and of others. When you can forgive the Devil, that old dragon, the wrath of the Father upon all flesh, you are truly humble enough to receive his Spirit.
But mankind tries to interpret the Word before it is time to do so. As a result, he divides the Word without rightly dividing the Word. No one can rightly divide the Word unless and until they have the heart of righteousness, the Spirit of the Father’s Word made flesh upon and within them. That is a Son who requires great sacrifice! It requires a detachment of the flesh and yet a love for the fleshly people who are sinners.
Jesus called out the Pharisees in the synagogues because they were like serpents. They put upon men and women things they were not willing to do themselves. God never puts anything upon man that he is unwilling to do himself, as evidenced by his great love for his creation, for whom he dies to a part of himself — his own wrath upon our sin. He forgives us even when we kill him, because he knows that we know not what we do.
Hirelings are those who hold themselves up as leaders and teachers of men. They are “holy” men of religions of man’s flesh, but they are just flesh themselves. They are men who have stony hearts. They hate their brethren. They have enmity toward them. They can’t see that all people are made in the image of God, and that they all have a breath of life, of his Holy Spirit, within them. All people aren’t all like God yet, but many of them are well on their way to becoming like him. It just takes TIME.
You see, all of life is a growth process. It takes God working in us over many seasons to call our attention to his way, his Messiah, his mercy and love for all fleshly mankind. First we must be taught that he is sovereign and that he loves and forgives us. That comes through great tribulation and then repentance and accepting of God’s Word in us. Then he teaches us as individuals, how to love him and how to love the brethren. It begins by him teaching us that he truly loves us. Then we have to learn how to love ourselves. Then we can learn how to truly love our brethren.
A true shepherd has the Spirit of the Slain lamb within them. They have already forgiven their brethren for they know not what they are doing, just like Jesus did on the cross. Jesus said:
“Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
The one who is slain will say:
“Even though he yet slay me, I will praise (and forgive) him.”
Even though the Father slays us through our brethren so that we die to ourselves, yet we will praise the one who slays us so that we learn the patience of the saints. We love and serve the Lord even when times are tough. We trust in him and in all that he desires to do to us and through us in whatever form that takes. We are the cupbearer to the King. We must be willing to drink of the cup of the Word ourselves, even if it means we must die to the Word and the opinions of others or of ourselves in the process, so that we can learn what the Word truly says and means!
The true Shepherd is not a man of flesh. He is the Spirit of Messiah within our flesh. He is the Father’s Holy Spirit in us. He transforms us so that we don’t have enmity toward the brethren. He allows us to know that the brethren are all babes or little children. He causes us to become an adult in the Word, the Scriptures, the written Word, but even higher than that, he teaches us by his Voice, all of Father’s ways. He can do this because he is the Spirit of Father’s Word made flesh in us, and he dashes our heart of stone against his Word and creates a new heart in us — the Father’s heart of Love. It’s a heart of flesh — His. He makes all things new, even our mindset, heart and Spirit.
When you come out of congregations of fleshly men who teach a form of godliness that isn’t truly the heart of Messiah, then you will be able to receive a higher heart — Father’s Son. That heart is the love of the brethren and the love of the Father without the enmity of the flesh that is in fleshly people and fleshly leaders. They are still busy offending the hearts and minds and bodies of people who are truly seeking the Father. The leaders are busy pointing fingers and judging hearts they cannot possibly see or know without the Spirit of Messiah within them. They are too busy working out other peoples’ salvation to work out their own first before they teach the people.
Genesis 3:15 – And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
The fleshly leaders bruise the minds and the walks of the people who came to them for a good Word, with their own wrong interpretations of the Word because the leaders lack the Spirit of Messiah in them.
The man of flesh has enmity against the woman who has faith but who doesn’t have the experience and understanding to know how the Spirit of Messiah works…until he teaches her himself. (That’s the bride of Messiah).
The Hireling is standing before the congregations separating the
Word and the people with their own words and opinions and religious traditions and teachings . . . things that serve themselves. Those are the Pharisees and Sadducees, even of today’s temples, synagogues, and congregations.
The true Shepherd is calling the people out of the hands and divisions of men and delivering them into the uniting arms of Messiah where he serves them to teach them how to truly serve in the fullness of Father’s love. You see, all people are made in the image of God. If you love God, you love the brethren, and if you hate the brethren, you hate God. It’s that simple.
2 Timothy 2:2 – And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
Those faithful men aren’t calling other people wolves. They aren’t “calling them out.” They have already been called out by the Spirit of Messiah by the woman (the one who is the bride), but they have rejected the bride and the King who is within her.
2 Timothy 2:24 – And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
The bride is patient even in rejection. She continues to love and serve her Lord with all her heart, mind, soul and strength, because she has no one lording over her except for the Spirit of Messiah upon and within her. She is already united with him.
Hebrews 5:12 – For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
When you should be teachers and leaders, you still need one to teach you the very first principles of the oracles of God. You are babes. You need milk, not strong meat, because you can’t receive anything stronger. You are still eating portions, bread crumbs, separations, divisions of the Torah, Torah portions. You can’t receive a full meal of meat. You can’t see the harder things or the things that require that you chew and meditate on them. You glean and fly. You aren’t willing to really KNOW the Lord, because of your flesh.
REPENT and turn from your flesh and your fleshly leadership and seek the bride (and to become the bride). That union comes from the anointing of the Holy Spirit when you throw down the ways of men of flesh who have enmity and seek the Father’s face–who is Yahusha Messiah–Jesus Christ to the living. It is his resurrected Spirit that will fill you and begin to fulfill his works in you and through you, if you hear his voice and follow him and forsake the voice of fleshly religious men who ask of the people what they are not willing to do themselves….to love as the Father loves us first.
1 John 2:27 – But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him
Be healed. Your sins are already forgiven. Be well and be well loved as the bride of Messiah, by his Spiritual anointing in you. Then you will be able to love well and love truly and forgive your brethren in Spirit and in truth, for they knew not what they were doing, but they were loving as well as they could at the time. You just couldn’t see it. It’s just like God had to send part of himself down to be the eye witness to mankind in the flesh. God tells us not to kill. Don’t kill your brethren or their hope of salvation. The Father dies to himself, now die to yourself.
We were all blind, but with the hope of a resurrected Christ in us, now we may all finally see.
Drink the water of life from the wellspring of the Father’s Word made flesh.
Open your eyes and your heart.
Allow the Spirit of Messiah in your flesh to transform you into his body.
Then go out and love well.
