Firmware From The Father! Love Consciousness!
The metaphorical 'download' of the Indwelling Holy Spirit (
), has only 1 main file; YHVH-Love (true Love; uppercase Love)! From this 1 Love file, comes many other sub-files, naturally or intrinsically. However, none of the 'sub-files' are even comprehensible without the 1 main file of YHVH-Love, for it is the root and core of all else: Love is the fulfilling of the
. It is how we arrive at why we exist at all, which is itself, perfection!
The sub-files are:
wisdom and thus superior critical thinking and independent thinking skills (Isa 11:1-4;
), then peace, dignity, meekness, humility, mercy, leniency, grace, equanimity, forgiveness, gentleness, fearlessness, unity, community, equality, egalitarianism, long-suffering, loyalty, duty, honor, conscientiousness, emotional maturation, self-control, pacifism, bravery, integrity, purpose, simple-living, an equal distribution of resources (sharing), personal sacrifices, and temporal losses.
Love is impossible without the Indwelling Holy Spirit, because YHVH
Love, and humans are not, by nature, Love capable. Naturally, all mammals are driven by fear and paranoia, and the drive for reproduction as well as attachment, but for (the potentially malevolent) humans being, the fear degrades until it manifests as a state of pathological 'us-against-them-ism!' This degraded state is summarily,
. And modern-day christianized people are among the worst of them; a sure sign of the end-times!
All these (sub-file or) sub-attributes, are the mere byproducts of unconditional Love, or YHVH-Love, which was witnessed physically on the Messianic Cross (Luke 23:33-34). However, without the Indwelling Holy Spirit installing Love, these are (all) mere words that the atheists, the religionists and the
, must parrot back and forth from one another; however, they do so without any real concept of what they mean, must less do any of these features define their observable character.
All 'love' apart from (or absent of) the Indwelling Holy Spirit is merely simulated. In the absence of (YHVH sourced) Love, people remain egocentric and thus driven primarily by primal carnal fear and paranoia; by possessions and territorialism; compelled by pride-ego-emotion, rather than being guided and controlled by Love-wisdom-humility.
Love Can Evoke Emotions, But Emotions Cannot Evoke Love!
Consequently, the very concept of 'love' is just another topic their ego must contend with. To say to them that they have no concept of what Love is, and that they live in a state of Loveless indifference, they must deny this reality because their ego demands it; because they experience emotions. They say the word 'love' and therefore it must be true for them. But I am not better than you because I Love as YHVH Loves; there is no 'better than' in the world of Love: Only in the primal competitive world, do humans contend over such things.
True Love is demonstrated through the 3-C's: Commitment-Compassion-Communication. In the absence of YHVH-Love, there is only pride-ego-emotion, which rule and reign within the Loveless masses. Conversely, the future resurrected Saints of YHVH are driven by Love-wisdom-humility. The enemies of the Cross (corporeal and incorporeal) exploit humans via ego and money most of all, with emotions being the outward and often unrecognized reactionary. For example, an excessive devotion to the bible (
) is a byproduct of pride, not of Love. ~ YHVH Is Love; Satan Is Pride!
If an individual does not possess the Love of YHVH (the Indwelling Holy Spirit
is YHVH), that individual will be forced to fake Love: And if they are faking Love then they must also fake all the sub-attributes (sub-files) or byproducts of Love: Consequently, they will eventually become exhausted in this effort to keep up the acting. A person can act for only so long, before the real person within reemerges or reasserts self. People who must fake Love (and fake caring, etc.), wear out in time, and must change the narrative to hide the fact that they are only acting. However:
No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve Elohim and mammon!
And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things, and they derided Him.
But He said unto them:
You are they which justify yourselves before men, but Elohim knows your hearts: For that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of Elohim!
Therefore, the Godless masses must fake love, and thus, every other trait (the sub-attributes) that comes with/from Love: fake caring, fake loyalty, fake integrity, and so on: 'monkey-see-monkey-do--copy-mimic-parrot.' When a person has to fake Love, and thus any/all the Love centric attributes, this faking manifests itself, such as with
(yes, an actual word and thing, apparently); trying to be, and thus do, something you are not, will surely have negative impacts on the human psyche: e.g. the pandemic of
Conversely, True Love is itself the everlasting fuel that will take the (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH, flying gloriously through this life, easily, and then on into eternity! Serving Adonai our Elohim, from the root of YHVH Love, is all we want to do, daily and eternally; it is our only motivation for life. We disciples are not burned out, we are eternally fired up! Nevertheless, faking love, or any of the sub-attribute traits, will wear people down in a comparatively short amount of time. That is why human-to-human (indeed, all) relationships fail in a blink of time; inside of a few years or a few decades: The parable of the sower somewhat summarized; the rich young righteous ruler exposed.
Love Is The Great Mystery! Why So Few Become Love!
Without becoming Love, people must (and can only) simulate it. The Faithless-Godless-Loveless, westernized-monetized-christianized-industrialized masses, like to hear themselves say those noble words; they like to believe they are like the characters of fiction and media, which truly shapes their very mentality, and thus existence. They play-act or simulate love; they play-act social heroes and saviors and rescuers. They are even so twisted that they think that anger and revenge, violence and militarism, heroism and machismo, are somehow Messianic: They are not!
However, the bulk of humanity will live-die, in an utterly Loveless state of existence, and, will not so much as even comprehend these words, much less does Love define their every action and thought, or permeate every cell of their being. Instead, its absence exposes their true character, nature, and mentality. Love cannot be their barometer, which leaves only money as their life compass. Love is truly the great mystery. Ironically, so are
untranslatable human emotions
, once you understand their complexities and how they are governed by enculturation.
If I tell someone that they are a Loveless being, and this is an observable fact, the evidence does not matter to them because, after all, they have emotions, and, they say the words 'I love you' emotionally, and therefore, it must be true. That is pride-ego-emotion! They cannot admit to themselves, nor to their Creator, and thus to other humans, that they live in a perpetual state of Lovelessness, and their pride-ego-emotion will not allow this truth to penetrate their consciousness; to expose them; the power of pride is why Broadway is so wide and Narrow Way so narrow (Matt 7:13-15).
The (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH are effectually the Lord, walking on Earth today; we replaced Him physically, because we have the exact same Holy Spirit inhabiting us, as did Messiah Yeshua following His baptism (
): Indeed, the Messiah Soul comforts and empowers us (
). But the Godless-religious unwittingly mock YHVH (Gal 6:7-8) when they believe that Love is an emotion: In fact,
Love is a Verb!
True Love can surely evoke strong emotion, but Love itself is not an emotion; Love is what we become (or not): Love is thus the manifestation and the culmination of our actions and inaction's.
However, since the bulk of humanity will live, from birth to death, in a virtually Loveless state of existence, the only other option for them is to claim it (or identify it) as an emotion; otherwise, they'd have to acknowledge their Loveless state of existence, and very few people do that. Using the word 'love' is rather easy, but the Elect of YHVH know that YHVH
Love and the Holy Spirit
YHVH! The Holy Spirit is just another manifestation of YHVH, which exists only to inhabit or to dwell within humans; to yoke with our Soul; to become One with us now and thus forever (Luke 17:20-21). (For more in depth discussion on false love, see:
The Love Of YHVH, Versus The Word 'love!'
Love always puts others first! Love always thinks first about how lifestyle choices impact everyone everywhere (e.g. the
). When people are
conquered and radically transformed (or born-again) by the Indwelling Holy Spirit, they instead, remain Spiritually blinded, and thus, they cannot see this; they cannot truly fathom any of this. They can and will read these words, academically, but in doing so, they still cannot 'become' Love. Consequently, they unknowingly mock YHVH each time they say the word 'love' while still existing in a Loveless state, observable in lifestyle choices. Everything must then be justified.
Emotional indoctrination comes from the fact that (almost) all parents instill the concepts of love in children, even instructing them to parrot the word back, but without an adult-level understanding of its complexities. Therefore, the word gets logged into the brain's emotion packet and it remains there. Consequently, the Faithless-Godless-Loveless masses, grow-up believing that love is represented in that word, which then gets assigned to
, where dependents become absorbed into the world of the
Indeed, videos abound of
parrots saying I love you!
Of course, it is a heinous mockery of YHVH-Love to so casually use the word 'love' just to entertain oneself (Matt 12:31-33,34-37): It is analogous to those who mockingly belittled and played with my Master while He was greatly suffering on the Cross (Matt 27:26-30,31-35).
As deeply insulting as all this is, to the (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH, our Heavenly Father happens to understand this error. Messiah Yeshua never said 'I love you' to anyone, but instead, demonstrated Love on the Messianic Cross; again, Love is a verb! And talk ain't cheep, it's free! It is thus, to mock YHVH by reducing that supreme act of Love, to that of a mere, fickle, passing human emotion; a merely parroted slogan. Prior to the propitiation (1Jo 2:1-5), it was impossible for humans to harbor the Holy Spirit permanently; thus, we read (mostly in the
), its writers will anthropomorphize Adonai Elohim, by assigning emotions instead (See:
Personification in the Bible
Love (1Jo 4:7-8); this is why the word Love is capitalized. YHVH came in the Person of
(YHVH Corporeal), to experience the human condition (Heb 4:14-15), and also, to make a way for us mere hominids to become One with our Creator (
summarized); to become sentient; to be indwelt with Love from on High. Sin was once the barrier; however, the propitiation rebuilt the (metaphorical) bridge destroyed by sin. Even still, we are volitional beings; we have free-will; it is our superpower, and thus, YHVH has no power over us in that way, except for what we unconditionally surrender unto Him daily.
The gift of Messiah Yeshua has been offered; however, you can take it or leave it: That
is Love: That defines Love! I Love you, but I have zero power over you, and therefore, you can reciprocate that Love, or not. However, my Love for you is independent of what you decide to do, or not to do. YHVH Loves you and has already proven it; however, it is totally up to you, to Love YHVH in return, or not (Matt 22:37).
The bulk of humanity will not; they will not become Love, and as such, they will reduce Love to that, which they can attain and understand: Emotions! All mammals experience emotion, and it requires nothing outward, for it occurs on its own, naturally and autonomously:
YHVH-Love Is The Great Healer!
Love is not merely the name you assign to a brain-created and experienced human emotion; Love is a verb; Love can only be seen and lived; expressed in and from our mentalities and thus, the actions and inaction's that sprout from our newly created consciousness; the mind of Messiah (1Co 2:10-16). If you want to see Love, look upon the Cross of Messiah; there you will see the sum and the paradigm of Love. YHVH is Love, and the Indwelling Holy Spirit (
) is the Soul of Messiah Yeshua (John 14:15-18,19-21,25-28; 16:7-11,12-16).
Love can heal us in ways that are often unseen in this world. Dreams can be utilized by the Indwelling Holy Spirit, because doing so does not violate our corporeal volition. I have many dreams where I can offer forgiveness, receive forgiveness, or otherwise accomplish relational reparations. People that I Love, then, now and forever, but who have abandoned me for others, or just for a different life, I miss them deeply, even decades along. They could not see a lifetime with a plain man on a carpenters wages.
But my blessed and Love-centered Master and fellow
, Messiah Yeshua, as the Holy Spirit dwelling within me, can elicit dreams that allow me to continue and/or complete my Love for them; to tell them again I Love them, and in a way that they fully comprehend and cherish. In my dreams, they actually Love me too; we exchange meaningful words and have a real and eternally enduring encounter. It allows me to say what I was not able to back then. And I always awake from these dreams, fulfilled, joyful, complete, healed.
Love is far more than a mere feeling; far more than a single thing or ideal: Love is multilayered; Love is both simple and complex. I can try my best to use words to define and explain Love; however, one must become Love to fully comprehend its fullness; its complexity in simplicity. Love was/is the empowerment that allowed Messiah Yeshua to remain on the Cross, even though He had the ability to be delivered from such a fate. Love is what sets us free from the bondage of blindness. From Love comes all other eternally-valued characteristics that YHVH is allowing us to become, while here on Earth.
do not have 'YHVH-in-us'; the present guidance of the Indwelling Holy Spirit, we remain much as we did from the start. There is no Spiritual transformation, only a religious (or cultural) conformation. As such, we have no Love, nor even the capacity for Love, nor even an understanding of Love itself: YHVH is Love, and either abides in you, or not: The human brain (alone) is utterly incapable of Love, apart from YHVH. Not since the creation of humanity, has YHVH displayed the sum of Love (on this planet) until the First Coming of the Savior of humanity; the prophesied Savior: Messiah Yeshua!
That act upon the Cross was the ultimate display and the sum demonstration of Love; complete and total Love; the supremacy of mercy (even while enduring mercilessness). Humans pervert that sacrifice every time they say the word 'love' when they are otherwise Faithless and thus Godless and thus Loveless (Heb 11:1-4,5-6).
In the world, 'love' is often sexual in nature; or financial; indeed there is no pure and innocent Love among the Faithless-Godless-Loveless; the westernized-monetized-christianized-industrialized. Thus, all acts of affection are motivated by that sexual component; all actions are assumed precursors to coitus; there is no innocence or purity within them; there are no 'asexual' relational connections between them.
YHVH-Love Is The Great Heart Softener!
True Love manifests physically and outwardly, not just emotionally. We can feel emotions as a consequence
Love, but Love (itself) is not an emotion; not mere brain chemistry. What happens then, is that we learn about the word 'love' (in any language) when we are young, and its meaning assigned to us via our
. However, when we do not know what Love is -- because YHVH is not
us -- we need to seek it out, just like a student in a class who is not understanding a topic.
True Love is sacred, but the Godless have no concept of Love and so they parrot the word 'love' casually and often; they are sacrilegious concerning the word but only because they have no concept. A person could be made to feel guilty or unjust for not caring, but they cannot truly care, because they do not Love; indeed, they are not Love! YHVH
is Love; the Indwelling Holy Spirit is YHVH.
The Loveless seek repetition, confirmation and definition; they need to say and hear the word 'love' over and over, but they never come to the knowledge of its truth; they cannot
be Love! This means that those who say the word 'love' too often, are likely those who understand it the least.
Messiah Yeshua never once said the words 'I Love you' to anyone; instead, He demonstrated what Love was (and is) by hanging on the Cross; by living it outwardly through action and lifestyle; in truth-sharing; in service unto the least of these. The bulk of humanity will merely parrot the word 'love' without ever knowing its true meaning: Love is a verb! When we become Love via the Indwelling Holy Spirit, we only rarely say the words: 'I Love you!' Instead, we live it daily. We disciples are not merely the recipients of YHVH Love (we are that); we are also the conduits of YHVH Love.
The Master also taught us the manifestations of true Love; that of forgiveness, (relational) restoration, compassion, mercy, long-suffering, personal surrender, the eternality of community, and even (if necessary) temporal suffering on behalf of another: That is the witness of Love! Those who are limited to mere emotion, will thus (and naturally) fear death, and so they worry that they may not parrot the word 'love' prior to death. They think that they must say the word often, so that they do not feel guilty for failing to say the word, within a certain period of time, whenever an untimely death occurs. This is strange to all Love-conquered people, but to the other 99.5% it is quite normal.
This is because love is fleeting to them; it is temporal and does not transcend this life: They believe that Love is trapped in words. This is because they are Spiritually blind, and cannot fathom Love, much less become the sum totality
of Love. Without the Indwelling Holy Spirit, it is impossible to be Love! People who say 'I Love you' all the time, are unknowingly mocking YHVH, who IS Love (1Jo 4:7-11,12-16): Aloha ke Akua!
I Do Not Know How To Un-Love You, And I Pray I Never Learn How!
The most heartbreaking experience possible on Earth, is to learn that someone whom you Love with all your heart, mind and Soul, has decided not to love you (or to un-love you, so they can upgrade). In all other situations for the Elect of YHVH, relational separation is natural. If we are blessed with children in our home, it is the will of YHVH that we bring them up in the admonition of the Lord, and then, send them out to find their own path in life.
However, if they die suddenly (still) as children, we know that they are covered under the precious blood of the Lamb; Messiah Yeshua; they are with Him right away. Death is a natural part of life; it happens to us all. All humans have lost someone they Love to death; then, they also died, leaving others behind. Losing a child is an unspeakable pain.
Nevertheless, the one relationship that is to last unto death, is our spouse; our Soul-mate (till death do us part!). When this person, of whom we would lay down our lives for, one day looks at us and says: 'I don't love you anymore!' Or: 'I'm in love with another!' Or: 'I still love you, I'm just not in-love with you!' These parroted word-concepts demonstrate that they have no clue what True Love is. They just walk out of the marriage, and never show any interest in you again, forever; this is utterly devastating to the Soul; this is unnatural; it is not a part of the YHVH design, which is, till death do us part.
The Soul and the psyche are just not built to handle this; it is fully Godless. Of course, it is impossible for us to stop Loving them, now or forever, because True Love never ends. It is thus impossible to replace them; explaining why the (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH rarely remarry. When two become one flesh (Matt 19:3-8), they cannot revert back to two again: Oneness is the duty; the responsibility; the sum of marriage (
): It is not a game we play.
As for my spousal relationships; the tragic consequences are of my own making. I was not Messianic in my early days as an evangelical churched nondenominational protestant; I was not obedient to my Master, and as such I was unequally yoked with unbelievers: Why? Because they were pretty and tempting, and they all had a bloody trail of Ex's! And X is the secular word for relationship roadkill, or acceptable neighbor hating. The warning signs were as bright as day, but I was Spiritually blind and could not see.
As an elder, I now have the honor and duty to warn the young (those who are dedicated to Messiah Yeshua), not to yoke with unbelievers; and, that true believers are very easy to see with your eyes: They dress in modesty and strive to remain pure; they are most likely raised in Messianic fashion, by modest and simple-living parents. They are taught the horrors of the culture that surrounds them, and of the Godless feminism that (prophetically) infects these end-times. You will know the tree by the fruit it bears: You can see it plainly.
True Love never ends -- Ever! It is an impossibility. The act of relational abandonment is not just the evidence that your 'Soulmate' doesn't Love you, it exposes the fact that they do not Love, at all. This person has summarily tossed you aside like garbage; moved on as if you never really existed at all; a steppingstone that they merely tripped upon, along life's pathway. Being inhuman, the causing of pain from Love lost actually thrills them!
However, YHVH takes this relationship more seriously than all others. We, the Elect of YHVH, are even referred to as the Body of Messiah; the profoundly inter-personal relationship. We know that YHVH placed within us males, a bonding agent that exists, even in Godless men (though minimally); these men will often stalk, abuse or kill the female when she departs the relationship. This is when the natural bonding propensity becomes unnatural; violent; rancid; evil.
But this is why YHVH selected the male of our species to do much work through. The female was created to be his helpmate. YHVH made men to be more devoted and attached to mates, than females are. YHVH first created male; YHVH used males predominantly throughout the Tanakh. YHVH even came in the form of a male (Messiah Yeshua). But human gender is about procreation, not domination.
The Godless, and the Godless-religious, can only see the surface of things, and as such, they must view this (fact) as just another patriarch making up gods, so to have dominance over women. But YHVH did not create dominance; evil men did that part. It is the evil within the heart of men (and women) which has so twisted what YHVH was trying to do. Messiah Yeshua was clearly egalitarian, and died to make it a future reality, and if not on Earth, then in the future eternal Kingdom of Heaven (Matt 22:23-28,29-32).
Consuming The Godless World; Expecting Messianic Results!
We disciples of Messiah Yeshua, are to metaphorically, drink from our own wells (Pro 5:15-20); that is, we seek a life-mate from among the Elect of YHVH, and avoid the worldly. I did not do that; I Love Godless women (then; today; forever). The Love is genuine and YHVH made, but the object of that Love, was/is not the intent of YHVH for the disciples of Messiah.
No one taught this principle to me, but that is only because they (also) did not know of it. I was not in the presence of the (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH; the Saved; the redeemed and transformed; the future resurrected Saints. I was a churched person, linked with christianized people and led by the 'Xians of Religianity'. This was my fault, and the price for me (and others) was/is grievous (2Co 6:14-18).
As disciples of Messiah, we must recognize the true war: 'For we war not against flesh and blood,' but a Spiritual war between good and evil, that began with the fall of Satan and moved into the Garden of Eden, wherein we humans are caught in between (all:
). YHVH and all Creation co-existed for countless measures of time, prior to the creation of Earth.
And then in the course of time, Satan, the most beautiful and talented and adored of all angels, decided because of his (her, its) beauty and greatness as a star, it was time to abandon YHVH: Satan was now ready to be worshiped; to be treated with 'god-like' reverence; to be wanted by the multitudes. Indeed, and all Satan inspired humans, likewise seek to be adored; seek to be special; seek the stages of this life; they demand (or expect) respect, rather than earning it humbly.
Thus, Satan no longer needed YHVH; instead, Satan decided to
be god, and thus, a host of angel-turned-demons followed Satan, and perhaps in the trillions, with other evil Souls from other now-dead worlds. This (Satan leaving Elohim) is the first act of relational abandonment, and the consequences have rippled down through space/time, and have made a monumental effect upon us Earthlings stuck here on this one blue dot in space. Once you grasp this, scripture takes on a whole new meaning: So does this life.
To Love the undesirable; the unwanted; the social or cultural rejects; that is the proof of the power of Love. My Master, Messiah Yeshua, Loved everyone the same, proving that on the Cross. How can someone get so close to someone that they look them up close in their eyes, say the words (I love you), and then in a blink of time, cast them aside? Because all acts of relational abandonment are the end-consequence of exploitative relationships.
However, what Messiah Yeshua was teaching all His Disciples (then and now) was/is this: If you have nothing that
(the worldly) wants, the worldly will not want you, or seek after you: For that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination unto Adonai our Elohim. But still, people will draw close to those living Love, if only to experience being Loved for a short time. But even that mere curiosity comes to an end, because they never actually Love, at all; like any mammal can and does, they merely simulate love for personal gains or experiences.
Abandoning someone who Loves you unconditionally is a very hard thing to justify. This is why the need to make oneself a victim, is such a necessary part of the script. If I am a victim, then it is my duty to rid myself of the villain. But too often, villainization and false witness are the byproducts of a deep internal guilt; when a person uses another person, and now wants to dispose of them to make way for the coming upgrade/s, this process is of course pathetic; however, if the act is to save one's self from the villain, then it is heroic.
The need for the target of relational abandonment, to be a villain, becomes necessary; one would likely be criticized for abandoning a good person who genuinely Loves you. Thus, the closure process must be equally dramatic and anger-filled, in order to cover the stench of relational abandonment as a mere upgrade process, which in truth, is an act and demonstration of pure and total Lovelessness. Faithless-Godless-Loveless humans abuse the word 'love' in order to gain trust, which is necessary to exploit; to extract material things; to garner social positions; for coitus; or, just to feed their ever-draining ego.
People like the idea of being worthy of Love; they like being Loved (adored; worshiped even); they like it when another is willing to forsake all others and marry them; however, they exist in a state of Lovelessness, and thus cannot reciprocate: They exist in that Loveless state, as a consequence of existing without the Indwelling Holy Spirit: For them, the word 'love' is a curse. The term 'Love hurts' is perfectly wrong; only Love heals. False love hurts indeed, it is a manifestation of Satan and thus evil.
But in fact, True Love is the state of our Heavenly Father -- YHVH
is Love -- YHVH is eternal; hence, True Love never ends; not even for a day; not even one second. Once Love begins, it grows over time, and continues on into eternity. Conversely; false love is typically the word being attached to an emotion, which always fades and ends. The word 'love' is often used and abused to gain trust, get resources or obtain other favors.
The warning and the evidence of the Godless, are recognized herein: It is evil people who use/abuse the word 'love', but, who never Love. They mock YHVH, when they use the word 'love' but never actually Love. Relational abandonment is analogous to what the dead body and the smoking gun, is, to the murderer.
Love Is What We Become! Let's Go Do Love!
( Matt 25)
YHVH Love; True Love, is the fruit-evidence of Salvation: The fruit of the Spirit is YHVH-Love ~ YHVH
Love. It is not what we feel, it is what we
. Love is a verb; an act; an action. Messiah Yeshua never said 'I Love you John'; He demonstrated it on the Cross. Anyone can say words: The empty abyss of outer
will host billions who said 'love' words a thousand times, but lived-died in a state of utter Lovelessness.
In fact, the more someone says the words, the less likely they are to
be Love; to live enveloped by/in the Love of 'YHVH-in-us'. We mere mortals are perfected, only when the Holy Spirit dwells in us: The Indwelling! We become Love (and therein, perfected): Therefore, it is not a mere word that we assign to a mere emotion. True Love assuredly evokes emotion, but emotion alone, does not equal Love, as all primates have emotions: Attachment would be the correct word, but we are trained to parrot the word 'love' in these instances.
Love is not a thing, it is a condition; it is a state of being. Love is like honor, it is something you live, not necessarily something you feel. Those who Love, keep their relationships for all time and eternity. For the Elect of YHVH, the word 'un-Love' is an oxymoron: You can no more un-Love than you can un-die, and only Messiah Yeshua can resurrect the dead (and only He can cause us humans, to become Love). In like manner, once Love begins, it never ends, not in this life, and not in life-eternal.
Therefore, no person who Loves, ever-ever un-Loves: but in the drug of emotional highs (even in drunken highs), people say those precious Covenant words (I love you), but once the emotion fades or the alcohol wears off, so does the 'love'. Verily; the more often a person says 'I love you' the less likely it is they know, even what it means: Indeed, count the number of times the direct statement 'I love you' is in Scripture. Love does not become more real by the (repeated) saying of it, and those who attempt this suffer a haunting failure.
Money-love? False love Is Measured In Dollar Increments!
To the secular world (the
), churched or not; love always directly or indirectly equates to money. Any Faithless-Godless-Loveless female, will 'un-love' her man, one second after a rich handsome guy assures her of a relationship with him. Worldly women like the cultural productions of marriage, but have no clue what marriage represents to YHVH. They feel their ego being inflated when asked for their hand in marriage; they like being on a pedestal; perhaps they fantasize about the wedding celebration; of being the center of attention; of being adored and worshiped. None of this even touches (unconditional, eternal) Love! In fact, true Love is supremely humbling.
the Great Mystery; the great chasm between the emotion and the condition. To say love but not live Love, is to sentence one's self to the Abyss, and those hell-bent on going there will never know it; they'll just never get it. The Faithless-Godless-Loveless will attempt to compensate, by saying that they still 'love' those they have abandoned; again, more word noises (1Co 13:1), but that they are just not 'in-love!' What a venomous statement; a mockery and worse, an evil twisting of the very substance of YHVH-Love, or as some posit, Agape! The many
Greek words for love
exposes that the ancient Greeks were also oblivious, as they were even considered heathens (Acts 21:26-28), and not Spiritually Messianic nor even culturally Jewish.
Instead, most people will likely see themselves as victims of poor mate selection, and now justified, had to end that relationship. The culture (both religious and secular) has all the justification weapons they need to (again) feel-good about their act/s of relational abandonment. Without the Indwelling Holy Spirit, bringing YHVH-Love into us, we mere mortals are utterly clueless, and thus, 'love' is relegated to an emotion, and thus, YHVH-Love is inconceivable. The belief that you once Loved someone, but today you do not, is the fruit of evil: it is demonic; it is accursed.
There is a fate worse than physical death for disciples of Messiah Yeshua; that is, to lose a Loved one; to be separated from those we Love. Personally: I have never so much as thought this thought: 'I will abandon my Loved one.' Indeed, this has never occurred, once in all human history; that is right, no human has ever abandoned a Love: ever! Not even one time! When a person abandons someone, that action is (itself) the fruit-evidence, supporting the fact that no Love ever existed in the first place. Without the Indwelling Holy Spirit bringing YHVH-Love unto and within us, we mere hominids live in a state of utter Lovelessness.
The compound word, Faithless-Godless-Loveless, is logical, for these are all one in the same. Without actual (inland boat building, water walking) Faith, YHVH is not real, but only imagined; thus, without YHVH-in-us, it is impossible for the mere mammal to Love, for there is only the primal-carnal brain, and no more. Without
enlightenment, all that remains is what all life forms possess; a body and a brain.
Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some do not have the knowledge of Elohim; I speak this to your shame. But some man will say: How are the dead raised up and with what body do they come? You fool! That which you sow is not quickened, except it die. And that which you sow, you sow not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain. But Elohim gives it a body as it has pleased Him, and to every seed His own body. All flesh is not the same flesh; but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies, and body's terrestrial. But the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars. For one star differs from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption! It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory! It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power! It is sown a natural body; it is raised a Spiritual body! There is a natural body and there is a Spiritual body. And so it is written: 'The first man Adam was made a living Soul; the last Adam was made a quickening Spirit!'
(Gen 2:7; John 5:21)
Howbeit it was not first, that which is Spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward, that which is Spiritual. The first man is of Earth; earthy. The second man is of The Lord from Heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy, and as is the Heavenly, such are they also that are Heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the Heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of YHVH; neither does corruption inherit incorruption. (
The brain alone, is incapable of even conceiving Love, much less becoming or being Love. This is why it is restricted or limited to a mere emotion, which fades and then dies over time, and the love-object forgotten. While elephants return to the corpses of dead relatives, they too eventually move on, but the human Soul is enlivened only by the Indwelling Holy Spirit, which assures eternal relationships, which is certain because are rooted in YHVH Love.
It is utterly impossible to have the Love of YHVH, without having YHVH-in-us: Over and again, the
proclaim that those who Love, belong to YHVH. Hominids have attachment emotions that are no deeper or lasting than that of any primate at the zoo. True Love actually increases wisdom and intellect; attachment alone does not. True Love opens our Spiritual eyes, and thus our emotional sensitivity; our awareness of suffering that is
geographically near to us: The old saying, 'out of sight, out of mind,' fulfilled.
Only time is the proof of Love being true or false: True Love lasts every second of all infinity; false love always fades and then ends; always. The difference is not in the words that exit the mouth, or in the sincerity behind them at the time they were uttered; rather, the status of the relationship over time is the only barometer. True Love never ends; never has; never will.
As I have Loved you, so you Love one another! (John 13:33-35). Messiah Yeshua said this, and we know what happened to Him. Our Love is exactly as The Messiah's Love is, for us: ' YHVH IS Love!' There is no possibility of Love, apart from YHVH, Adonai our Elohim. The human, standing alone, has no capacity for Love, at all. If we do not understand the Love of YHVH manifest in Messiah Yeshua, how then, can we live in that Love? How can we be that Love? How then, can we even comprehend Love? We simply cannot.
This is why the bulk of humanity live/die utterly oblivious to Love; this is why they logically conclude that they are Godless primates that evolved into bipedal hominids (humans). But Love has visible fruit; Messiah Yeshua said to watch for it, and taught His sheep just how to do that, and then instructed us to do likewise (Luke 10:36-37; John 21:15-17). While the Faithless-Godless-Loveless say the word 'love' a lot, they cannot
do Love, explaining why they overcompensate and say the parroted slogan so much.
The Godless place human relationships on life's back-burner: the (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH put relationships first. The Godless never forgive faults and restore relationships; instead, they use the power of vengeance to justify severing human relationships. The Godly use the power of Love to restore relationships. Messiah Yeshua said it plainly:
They will know that you are My Disciples by your Love, one to another.
Saying the word 'love' during an emotional high, is experienced by all mammals; the human male raping a female believes he loves her during the act of rape, and this same 'love' is present with pedophiles and even murderers. During copulation, 'love' is often proclaimed, just as it is whenever too much alcohol is consumed. Yet, if you are not the rapist or the pedophile, you think he (the other one) is the sick one; you think that his 'love' is warped: Indeed! Why? Because 'love' is as different, as are emotions, when that is all it is! (E.g.
Love Grows With Time -- Emotions Fade With Time!
They are as convinced of the 'love' they feel at that moment, as every other human does at their moment of emotional peek. But the Love of YHVH is not emotion centric, it is Spirit centric, and results in actions that endure eternity. The rapist un-loves once he has satisfied himself, and re-loves the next rape victim: In other words, the 'love' lasts no longer than the emotion it is attached to.
Some people 'love' for months; even years, but no human, void of the Indwelling Holy Spirit, Loves every second of all infinity, completely and unconditionally. If you have ever Loved someone for even an hour, your Love for them right now, is vastly more powerful than it was at the first. Total, unconditional, eternal Love: This is the mystery that the eternally lost (the Godless and the Godless-religious) will never know.
Love is not an emotion; it is a condition that results from the Indwelling, and is witnessed in human action/inaction. It is analogous to the word 'faith:' For a man to have faith, and to say he has faith, are two entirely different things. Everyone has beliefs, but a belief is not Faith. And Faith is not a synonym for religion! How we treat one another is how we treat YHVH. The Indwelling is 'YHVH-in-us'; Love is the fruit. This is not about personality, but about perseverance: Personalities may conflict, but those who are One in Messiah Yeshua, are one in character, and character is far more important (more potent) than personality.
Typically, guilt produces anger, and when a person is Loved unconditionally, but they cannot reciprocate that Love, they feel anger towards those who Love them. This is why so many hate YHVH, for YHVH
is Love, and that Love is eternal; they cannot reproduce Love because they do not have the Indwelling Holy Spirit. All they have are mental emotions, which always fail or fade, and that is surely frustrating.
Primate love -- Animal love!
A dog will 'love' whoever feeds it regularly, and more so, to those who will spoil them; this 'allegiance-to-the-food' that Loveless humans anthropomorphizing further explains why they do not comprehend Love; why 'love', then, is relegated and assigned to some emotional high, or some material object or perishable thing (John 6:26-27). Anthropomorphizing is (itself) evidence of just how clueless humans are about Love, and thus, why they believe that these other life-forms also love: It is a true comparison, indeed. All mammals experience emotions.
emotions with primates as well as human child psychology studies on children are comprehensive. There is far more to being a parent than procreation, food and shelter; well, except to the capitalistic
, where dollar numbers define parenthood. Therefore, the bulk of humanity will likewise, see YHVH (or 'god' in their words) via
Humans often attach the word 'love' to differing emotional responses; this explains why people think animals actually love; they have no clue what real Love is, and so they merely attach the word to almost any strong emotional response (when considered as a positive response). For the Spiritually transformed, Love is demonstrated on the Cross; YHVH
is Love and Messiah Yeshua was/is YHVH Corporeal (and can be again, anytime, and will be again on His Second Coming). It is impossible to merely speak Love; it is far beyond words: Love is a verb! Animals, and most hominids, are oblivious to what true, sacrificial, unconditional eternal Love is. Greater Love has no man than this; indeed (John 15:13). Without the Indwelling Holy Spirit, it is virtually impossible to know (or be) YHVH-Love.
It is difficult to think that our mother, father or other close relation will end up in the abyss of outer
; that all the love-words they spoke were but a clanging cymbal (1Co 13:1); a noise created by manipulated air passing across vocal cords. No one wants to believe they are utterly Loveless; in today's humanist cultures, everyone 'loves' (if you don't believe them, just ask them). But Messiah Yeshua taught us to look for fruit; to see action and inaction as the only barometer and compass of the human Soul, and to basically ignore what exits the mouth.
Satan can say with convincing passion, 'I love you': I for one do not believe him. You and I will never hear YHVH say the words 'I Love you', we will experience it eternally; we will bathe in it; immersed in it like sunshine. YHVH Love conquers us, or, we live utterly Loveless from womb to tomb and beyond, and Messiah Yeshua is the only bridge; He is the only corporeal manifestation of YHVH. A person can spend every Sunday from cradle to grave in a church service, and on the day they die, they never knew Love for even one second of their corporeality.
Those Who Parrot 'I love you' Most, Understand It The Least!
Everyone I have ever known, who flippantly spouted off at the mouth, 'I love you,' to almost everyone, and all the time, were the most Loveless people I ever knew. It is as if they know -- deep-deep down inside, somewhere in one of their many darkrooms -- that they exist in a state of utter Lovelessness, and so, they attempt to make up for that (to over-compensate) with words; and lots of them.
It is analogous to Messiah Yeshua teaching about praying (
): That saying them over and over does not persuade YHVH to listen, nor does it make the act of praying real; it cannot replace living Faith. Messiah Yeshua never said 'I love you' to anyone; instead, He demonstrated it from the Cross. That reality is either the sum of your being, or, you are oblivious. You may have read the bible, but the bible has not yet read you.
YHVH IS Love: without 'YHVH-in-us', the hominid exists in a state of utter Lovelessness; zero Love, nor the ability to even comprehend it. Like every other animal, the human ideals of love must then be relegated to feelings; emotions; brain chemicals, and copulation is very chemically hormonal. For the Godless hominid, love is an orgasm; love is violence; love is rape or pedophilia; love is money.
Indeed, there are a series of chemical reactions within the brain during copulation orgasm. This is why Loveless females will 'love' the one who provides them with the best orgasms; the most money; this is why they 'fall in love' because to them it is just that fickle. In other words, they fall in, and then at some future time when the upgrade is secured, they crawl out.
Humans: Expendable Monetary Units!
As a disciple of Messiah Yeshua, when I look upon another person, I am hopeful that I am looking at someone with whom I will be spending eternity with, in a Love bonded relationship that will transcend any/all mortal relationships on Earth. This person will Love me (now and forever) just like my Master Loves me right now. However, most often, the person looking back at me is not thinking anything of the kind; they are looking at me and thinking what they could gain from me during this life, and nothing more: A totally unequal yoke indeed (2Co 6:14-18).
For Loveless people (the bulk of humanity), other humans are just resources; they measure 'love' by how much money you give them, or, that they give you. Ordinary men are a steppingstone to many women in their perpetual upgrade mode; a mere means to a sexual and/or economic end, on their way to their rich & famous 'dream man!' Therefore, the victim role is a great role to maintain, when these Loveless people are about to abandon someone during the relational upgrade stage; they need a justified out, in order to stave off
for yet another year.
The only other option is to admit to one's self:
This person Loves me unconditionally, but I want more money (or more sex; whatever feeds the ego and stimulates the emotions); therefore, I will claim to be a victim, and then the world will pity me and encourage me to abandon them; then I will trade up! Problem seemingly solved! Then comes the cognitive dissonance, with the many efforts to avoid its reality closing-in, as time goes by. And the burying goes on.
This is what many people do in action, but it is not how they see themselves; they lie to themselves, and then to others, and of course, to YHVH. Because they have no clue what the Love of YHVH is, they muddle through this life with the word 'love', as it is attached, and then detached, from one person to the next: True Love (Messianic Love) is eternal and unconditional. They end up like the dog, who gravitates toward those who feed them; indeed, those who will spoil them with the things of this world. The Godless like to dangle this world's goods over the needy like that.
True Love Is Sacrificial; False love Is Superficial!
The Godless, and the Godless-religious, cannot know what Love is, because it is the Indwelling Holy Spirit that brings Love into us. Consequently, false love is to pretend to love for some personal gain agenda. Humans will be kind to others, only as it will best benefit them; even to make a show of 'being loving' to impress others (as we witness among the Godless-religious).
This is why humans are not honest with each other; why they lie so easily to one another, even those close to them; why they say what others want to hear, rather than what YHVH wants them to say, which is always truth, despite how that will affect human emotion (John 8:42-44; Rev 21:8). Read:
What I Learned About Love When I Stopped Being Honest (pdf)
The conflict with the word 'love' is truly celestial: The battleground and strategy is mental and emotional. The demonic forces use and abuse the greatest of human weaknesses, emotions, to destroy Souls by deception and guile. Emotions are the brain-experience caused by endorphins and dopamine produced from the human experience; the human condition: Humanity's synaptic reaction to outward (and inward-sourced) stimuli.
That experience is produced, much like a movie is; human (emotional) intelligence determines how one person will react to outward stimuli as compared to another person. Human intelligence is primarily emotional at its core: E.g. There are no emotionally immature intelligent people; emotional maturation precedes wisdom and cognition, which precedes higher intelligence.
It is the Indwelling that matures us Spiritually, and then emotionally, and then intellectually; wherein we become wise in Messiah Yeshua, as well as the creation (everything). However, the individual's understanding of Love, is the most important thing in a human's existence; it sets the stage for the rest of life, both temporal and eternal. We of the Indwelling understand the difference between brain-love, and Soul-Love, or Spirit-Love. When we read 'the love of money is the root of all evil' we know that this is not the Love that kept Messiah Yeshua on the Cross for all humanity.
Instead, we know that this is the most common emotion that is assigned the word 'love' and yet, it is far from Love; it is lust. Lust has a table-full of emotions, all the way from romance to greed, and though they're all the same in essence, they are reacted to differently from person to person. The Love that YHVH has and brings into us, via the Indwelling Holy Spirit, gives us the same capacity as YHVH has in Love; that our Love is eternal and unconditional; that it empowers us for self sacrifice (John 15:12-15); that it can never end or be taken away.
Godless humans will feel strong emotions (usually romance mating emotions) and then attach the word 'love' to that emotion, and then get married (if it is expected of them to do so). But time will cause those brain-chemicals to subside; over time they vacate the brain as they were assigned to a particular 'outward thing'; in this case, one's spouse.
Greater Love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for their friends! (John 15:12-16)
Emotions come and go as outward stimuli affects them (i.e. other humans, animals, money, things), but Love is an entirely different thing than that. It is horrifying to think of myself as limited to such a brain centric process, and yet, for those living in that state of Lovelessness, they are as oblivious to that condition as a person who is mentally retarded; indeed, they are emotionally retarded. I simply cannot un-Love, nor do I even understand how that is possible, until I intellectualize the issue (as I have done here).
Just as I would wish death over living this life mentally retarded, I would evermore wish death, if I did not Love. The very idea of
not Loving those I Love, ever, is horrifying: I pray to Adonai my Elohim, always, to never take my Love from me, and that if I ever get to a place in this world, where I do not Love, to take me out of this world right away.
Just as mental retardation is caused by a brain defect, so it is with emotional retardation; the Soul is dormant and thus, incapable of receiving (and then living in) the Love of YHVH via that
; the Indwelling. The human brain is left alone to fend for itself, and so, as it interacts with
, it hears the words, and then it watches how others use those words, and then it simply mimics the behavior. Children have a greater perspective of Love, because YHVH made all humans with Souls; however, as we get older, the brain grows and we (humans) move farther away from that Soul-connection, via our superpower of volition.
Once the brain matures, it must reconnect with that inner-child. That need to reconnect (that gradual separation from the child) is due to the human drama that is created around children by the multitudes of Faithless-Godless-Loveless adults. Godlessness and Lovelessness go hand in hand, for without Messiah-in-us, humans are utterly incapable of Love. Fear is all that remains; thus, people are far more likely to kill to survive, than to die for another.
In the absence of YHVH Love within, the brain has no choice but to assign the word 'love' to something, or else, confess to self and the world that you live in a state of utter Lovelessness, and few (Godless) humans are even that mature. Thus, the word 'love' is assigned to endorphin-peaks; during copulation, drunkenness and romance, and then in time, dissipates and dies on the proverbial vine.
This shallow (and horrifyingly superficial) experience with 'love' is typically acceptable to the Godless, for they are Spiritually blind, and so, they must settle for that which they can experience in this life, based on what they have to experience it with, just like a person who is eye-blind. Children are open and trusting at first, but then they witness adult hypocrisy, and then as they understand it, they begin to close the doors to the Soul, and then as adults, they must make a choice as to what to do about it (and why we do not Baptize children, for it will do no good; it is called volition).
Once the Indwelling Holy Spirit inhabits us; jumps into our Soul-vessel, we are now tethered to the Creator of the Universe; the Light goes on, and we begin to see everything: Was blind but now I see! When we are directly connected to YHVH by the tether of the Holy Spirit (The Messiah's Soul if you will), we are plugged-in to the power cord of the sum universe.
Indeed, we have the Love of YHVH, directly from YHVH, and thus, we become Love; we are capable of Loving others forever (that is Heaven); this is why YHVH will separate the sheep from the goats; the wheat from the tares. Those who cannot Love others here and now will certainly not be able to Love others forever and ever: the math is elementary.
Love Transcends Emotion!
Indeed, Love makes us emotionally mature. This same brain experience happens with religion as well; multitudes of humans have an emotional experience concerning God/religion, and then assign the word 'salvation' (Yeshua) to that emotional experience. But like Love, Salvation is the consequence of YHVH-in-us; therefore, it is not something that vacillates with time, but indeed, it is a rebirth.
Salvation is the result of a metamorphosis, and the evidence is not subtle; rather, it is radical (like night and day). Whenever salvation is emotion centric, is turns out just like love does over time; it deteriorates into a job or a boring social club. But Love radically transforms how you live on Earth.
Though the religion-businesses try to keep the emotions going, via their cheerleader style services, eventually the world wins out, and they either leave religion, or Spiritually die in the pews. Those who started out on church stages, but were discovered by the Godless world, are quick to abandon the church stage for the world stage.
Without YHVH-in-us, we are subject to the physical world, and thus, it becomes our all-in-all; it becomes all we see, hear, smell, taste and touch, and thus, pursue. There is no Spiritual life beyond the emotion-experience and the words that are attached (and detached) to those emotions. Thus, church-businesses thrive monetarily from emotion stimulation and excitation.
Conversely, the (infinitesimal & inconspicuous) Elect of YHVH, bond relationally with others, now and forever: Those without the Indwelling, fade in short order. However, time is the test of what is emotion centric, and what is Spirit centric (or YHVH-centric). I Love people right now and forever, who long ago, forgot I even exist. They mean everything to me, and I mean nothing to them. True Love is unidirectional; I do not need them to Love me to Love them.
But this is also why this life (corporeality) need not be for hundreds or even thousands of years, for the test of time does not require much time. If you cannot Love someone for a mere 30 years, it will be an utter impossibility for you to Love them unconditionally forever. This is why the religions will teach that we will (somehow) change once we are in Heaven; that we will perhaps become automatons, and will then Love as we are, by default.
But YHVH is not building an army of 'love-me' automatons, to appease the human trait of ego. YHVH is watching you, here and now, to see if you will ever Love; if you will, in this life, be able to surrender volitionally; to submit daily to the will of the Holy Spirit, and not your own. We do not change in character after (physical) death, we only change in nature. Once we prove ourselves to YHVH in the small things, YHVH will then, give us greater things; Himself. And then eternal life begins, even now! (Luke 16:10-12,13-16; 19:17)
The Godless-religious are blind, and thus, they see YHVH as Santa Claus who, if they are good, will get more toys. Thus, religion centers on this pathetic need to have more things; to show off to the other humans how YHVH likes them more; how much more important they are than 'those other' humans. Some protesters even think that Spiritual gifts are the measure of the man: They are not!
The More You Know, The Less You Need!
Note how humans differ in their understanding of another single word: Pride, a learned behavior and mentality. But pride is sin; pride is the end-consequence of a Godless Soul; the evidence that no humility or contentment exists; indeed, that no Love exists, because YHVH is not with them or in them. Humans who are prideful are (likewise) oblivious to that state of being. In that state of oblivion, the prideful are the opposite of those who are humble; who are complete in Messiah Yeshua. In the YHVH economy, all pride must be crushed and as dust at the foot of the Cross. In the Godless world, pride is a good thing; a positive attribute.
Consequently, they use the word pride in positive connotations: 'I'm proud of my successes'; 'I take pride in my work'; 'I want others to be proud of me', 'I'm proud of my country', 'gay pride', and so on. Pride is ego; and, it reveals a certain desperation. Note also the 'us-against-them' primate-paranoia theme, indicative of Godlessness. The prideful will read this right now, and yet, not understand what is being communicated, beyond what emotions they feel (now) in this reading. They are led by emotions and pride greatly impacts emotions.
Pride reigns in the absence of Messiah-in-us; thus, prideful people are not teachable; they are falsely self-assured and thus arrogant; they rely on the opinions of others to a fault. They place high value on worldly validations such as educational credentials, or wealth accumulation; they expect everyone else to value the things they value; money, property, employment, machines, and so on.
Those who live a Messiah-centered life, will focus solely on what YHVH thinks of them, not mortals (no, not any other created thing). Consequently, they do not seek positions, possessions, or other 'outward' things that seemingly add substance and purpose to their existence: Nor are they slave to any one thing (food abuse, substance abuse, self-abuse) that eventually manifests physically; that bears fruit, which defines the true nature of the tree fruit that we all can visually observe (Matt 7:15-20).
Matthew Henry wrote this in his commentary on the book of James (2:26):
The best works without faith are dead. It is by faith that anything we do is really good, as done with an eye to Elohim in obedience to Him. The most plausible profession of faith without works is dead, as the root is dead when it produces nothing green, nothing of fruit. Faith is the root, good works are the fruits, and we must see to it that we have both.
Notwithstanding, what the religion-businesses must do, is to redefine fruit; hence we have speaking in tongues (easily faked), and the teachings that all boil down to (and end up with) you giving them money. No matter how the message (and the bible) is prostituted, the business of religion is self-evident. But again, the blind cannot see, even though they can know; the blind are not dead, they are just blind. The blind experience life, just as we all do, except that they can be easily tricked, exploited, and lead; easily hurt by others.
The Protestants have little sound-bites like: 'christians are not perfect, just forgiven.' In fact: You are perfect (
), or, you will perish eternally in the metaphorical lake of fire:
. The presence of the Holy Spirit within a mortal's own Soul (the Indwelling Holy Spirit), radically alters the very consciousness, the mentality of the person,
, in direct proportion to that person's volition. You and I always have all the control; it is daily dying indeed (Luke 9:23-27)!
All humans thirst and hunger; I do, you do, everyone does. The Living Water, Bread of Life; that is how YHVH quenches that thirst and hunger. However, YHVH sets it down in front of us, but we must pick it up and eat/drink it! Get it? It is not a church service ritual. I (alone) have control over how much room the Holy Spirit will have within me, not the other way around. I decide the extent the Holy Spirit can work in and through me: honoring human volition (our superpower) is a delicate balance for YHVH.
YHVH-Love: Prerequisite To Spiritual Sight!
That is the complexity of volition; YHVH is there, and yet, not to control, but to abide. We must pick up our cross daily; we must surrender our will unto YHVH by surrendering our volition completely; freely. Do not get too caught up in the over-thinkers views here; there is only One Creator. The reason it is important for you to believe the assessments found in their theology, doctrine, creed or ordnance, has less to do with these human-created laws, and more to do with your willingness to hand over the power to them: This is the sin-evil of human-centered authoritarianism.
Salvation is a consequence, not a confession. A human can make an 'altar call' every weekend of their existence on the planet, professing Jesus as Lord and Savior daily, and at the stopping of their heart muscle, be cast into outer darkness for all infinity. Blindness is to be blind; it is impossible to see, to understand or comprehend light when your eyes are broken. The
refer to the disciples of Messiah Yeshua; the chosen ones, the Elect, the called-out, the set apart, and so on.
Conversely; the lost, the blind, the reprobate, the worldly, and finally, those intentionally blinded (or drugged) by YHVH so that they cannot see (1Ti 4:1-2): Why? Because they have volition (volition is our superpower), but more importantly, because they will have volition 'forever' (volition is eternal). The abyss of outer
is to protect the innocent, not to punish the indifferent; they will suffer from the sum of self, being rerun forever.
The Indwelling of the Holy Spirit does not result in YHVH usurping human volition (that is impossible). Volition is the number one most powerful function in the Universe. YHVH gave humans a power that is greater than the power of YHVH; that is John 3:16 in a nutshell: It is the supreme Will of YHVH, Creator of the Universe, that no human created by YHVH, will perish (Matt 18:10-14). To prove that, YHVH became a mortal and died tortuously as an innocent, to demonstrate the resolve of YHVH to Save all, by becoming the Propitiation Vessel (subsequently demonstrating what True Love represents).
Every human can be Saved, and yet, Messiah Yeshua said that only a fraction will traverse Narrow Way (Matt 7:13-14); the key word here is 'will'; human volition, but more specifically, pride. No one 'goes to hell' because they're a sinner; all sin is forgivable upon pure repentance; all sin (every act forever) has already been paid for on the Cross; the debt of sin is over.
Ego-pride-emotion is that impenetrable wall that prevents humans from confessing that they are wrong to begin with. Pride is the great barrier between humans and their Maker-Creator. Only pride; that stubborn pride; that mile-thick wall that prevents people from a sincere, humble, unconditional surrender unto the actual Lordship of Messiah Yeshua; that wall which separates them from YHVH.
Church attendance is more often a form of socialization than it is an assembly of the Elect of YHVH, communing for the service of/to one another, especially now days. Pride is often considered a personality trait, but it is a character trait: to act humble is rather easy; to be humble is not. Humility results in intelligence because the humble are open at all times to learn; and they do.
The pride-conquered are arrogant, no matter how well-rehearsed their staged personality is; they grow slowly (if at all) intellectually, and thus, they hide their ignorance with their pride. The Holy Spirit is repelled by this. They spend most of their life, well trained at justifying ignorance, rather than learning and maturing; first mentally, and most noticeable, emotionally: this is the end fruit of Godlessness.
Emotional maturation is manifest (or revealed and exposed) in self-esteem. But the Godless spend the bulk of their earthly existence chasing after their own ego; a human vessel that is so full of holes; so damaged that it can never be filled; never be satisfied. The blind can only lead the blind; this discontentment is so obvious that only those blinded by it (to it), cannot see it in self or in others: But those among the Elect of YHVH pick it up almost right away. The damaged ego is fruit to look for in others; Satan faithfully rewards the egos of the compliant.
This Life Is A Demonstration Of Who We Will Be In Eternity!
This life is the tryout; a test; an exhibition; an experiment; and, it is far more than that. Can you be Heavenly for a few decades? If not, you cannot and will not be eternally. The kingdom of Elohim is within you, right now, or not (Luke 17:20-21). If you suffer, right now, from controlism, or territorialism, competitivism, or adversarialism, authoritarianism, consumerism, or summarily
; any of these become the evidence that you have not been born-again: Cultural conformation, not Spiritual metamorphosis.
You have not yet surrendered unconditionally into the supreme and eternal Lordship of Messiah Yeshua, and died to this life; primarily to one's ego and pride, by placing all addictions, self-interests, and personal desires, unto the foot of the Cross, and prostrate before YHVH, seeking wholeheartedly to be a new creation. Church membership or self-beliefs are irrelevant to YHVH, and indeed even a distraction. We must be born-again; it is not a pet slogan that we say; it is the total, utter, eternally-enduring, Soul transformation, of your very being ...
The Indwelling fills every part of the inner person. No longer are we leaky vessels; weak and unfulfilled; we get our all-and-all from 'YHVH-in-us' (now and forever). When we succumb to Messiah Yeshua, we are broken and beautiful; we are the potters vessel rebuilt as a glorious restoration project. We do not merely receive the Holy Spirit in us, we then become Love: YHVH is Love. Love is witnessed also, in the Love of self: It is not about narcissism (as Satan was/is), but about a healthy Love of self; the exact same Love YHVH has for us; the same beauty YHVH sees in us. The Godless and the Godless-religious, serve the flesh, not with self Love, but with self loathing.
Know this please: You are a precious creation of YHVH with an eternal Soul of incalculable worth. Please do not cheapen that! Those who Love self as the
of the Holy Spirit, do not try to change that precious gift; they do not color their hair or skin, get tattoos or other body art; indeed, the true art is seen in what YHVH created from the womb. Those born with abnormalities would be exempt from this; like a cleft-lip or being born without an ear, and so on: This is about vanity (i.e. cosmetic surgery).
But among the greatest of open and willing sins, is that of the YHVH
, who take money for our Heavenly Father (professional religionists), or anything created by YHVH for all of us, such as hydrocarbons or other natural planetary resources. But the most heartbreaking of all, is when humans sell themselves (or other humans) for Satans unrighteous
The Godless (which includes the Godless-religious; the westernized-monetized-christianized-industrialized; the
); they are not contented or satisfied with anything (or anyone); all the more dissatisfied with the self, as the temple of YHVH. The Godless are insecure, unstable and have no self-esteem (esteem exists or not, there are no lows or highs), except those with culturally-derived exceptional looks, and even then, many will not see the beauty that others see in them (physically). Why? Because there are no 'hot-n-sexy' centenarians. One day we will all look into the mirror at an old person.
How many of the rich and famous have we witnessed, dying from drug overdoses, or who get dangerous cosmetic surgery's to make the self even more alluring; to be desired; to keep up with the beautiful people; to stave off aging? You see, this was exactly what Satan did with YHVH in that celestial battleground all those millennia ago: This Spiritual battle rages on, to this day; played out in you and me, if allowed. The beautiful people do great in the secular world; is that your living testimony?
Evil manifests itself in relational abandonment; in self-superiority; in the craving desire to be worshiped and adored by others; in keeping up with the rest. This is why humans seek wealth and beauty; to be powerful, admired, desired and respected by other humans. But they do so, to their eternal peril, and why humanity needed Messiah Yeshua.
What is worse; they age and become old looking, way too fast. But in vanity, looks and youth is all they are; it is what and who they are. Some die just to stay young, or because they are depressed for not being the youth they once were. Their very existence and reason for living, all centers on their pride-ego-emotion. All the subsequent medical intervention to extend beauty and youth, is embarrassing and sad to witness.
The disciples of Messiah, bask in the fullness of Messiah Yeshua: We get our ego from YHVH, our esteem from YHVH, our self-worth from YHVH. We need NO outward accolades; no outward compliments; no human (external) affirmations whatsoever. We are complete in Him; indeed, we are overflowing:
Living Water, Bread of Life
Conversely, the Godless, and the Godless-religious, seek to be filled within, from without: They thirst but are never quenched. This is what leads to, and causes, what is referred to as
. This is why people 'monkey-see-monkey-do--copy-mimic-parrot' those around them; why the tragedies of life, such as the ravages caused by the devotion to
; to the
, the gun cult, mass consumerism, and all other forms of hunger, which drive the Faithless-Godless-Loveless masses.
For those of us who Love the Godless, we are just a disposable cup that they take a sip from, and then discard; a steppingstone on a path that (ultimately) leads to a dead-end. But you see; with 'YHVH-in-us', it is impossible to un-Love, for Love is the great mystery unto the Faithless-Godless-Loveless masses; they cannot fathom continuing to Love someone they have already
, abused, consumed, or discarded: They have justified the act or relational abandonment and that person (that object) cannot be anything but discard to them.
We Cannot Love YHVH, Separate From People!
We Love YHVH through other people; there is no way to Love the incorporeal, once we understand Love (John 1:18; 1Jo 4:10-13). I repeat again: Love is a verb; it is what we do and not do; it is who we are. Those who make themselves busy with the world will not have time to Love and serve the brethren. Those who get too busy in ministry, will not have time to bond with those YHVH brings into their path. YHVH gives us humans, only so much earthly time, and then it is over.
Scripture teaches that heaven and earth shall pass away; the only thing that is eternal is the human Soul. The only thing worth investing our time into are other human Souls. All that we do here on Earth is to Love and serve and bond with other disciples of Messiah; to share the Love of 'YHVH-in-us', with unbelievers, as fate provides clear opportunities to do so. Our witness is our lifestyle.
If anything gets in the way of the bonding fellowship, we have missed the point; the Love of the brethren. If our prayer gets in the way of our fellowship, one to another, who then are we praying to? If our worship separates us from the beloved, who then do we worship? We do not Love YHVH as separate from people, we Love YHVH in and through people.
The Holy Spirit
YHVH; that Spirit abides in all disciples of Messiah. You cannot get any closer to YHVH, and YHVH cannot (physically) get any nearer to you, than when I'm standing next to you; indeed, when anyone conquered by the Indwelling Holy Spirit is standing next to anyone else (Matt 18:18-20). It is the supreme will of YHVH that zero humans remain Godless; unresurrected (John 3:16-18); however, the
also expose to us, the sobering 'math of the Messiah' (Matt 7:13-14,22-23; Luke 13:24-28; John 3:19-21).
YHVH created us all to live in unity with Him, proving that in an earthly unity/community with one another (
). However, YHVH made us in His image, and that image was not about our physical bodies or appearance or gender; it was about our sentience; our volition; our superpower: YHVH gave us temporal beings the power to make eternal decisions; decisions about self.
YHVH will not Spiritually resurrect a bunch of Spiritual automatons or mindless drones. YHVH wants us to want YHVH, and, based on our own power to choose; our true desire for Adonai our Elohim, independent of outward influences. Therefore, corporeality is all about that human superpower: Volition. True Love is produce of surrender.
However, the dread of life and the source of all depression and inner turmoil, is to live, knowing that false love is not enough. It is horrifying to go on, limited and confined to the emotional peaks of the primal human; the short-term, fleeting and shallow 'love' that carnal lust gets labeled, both in the mind and upon the lips. It is that trap, which drives the Godless to the brink of internal (and then eternal) death, and it is that internal death that works its way outwardly, as time marches on, relentlessly; hence, the westernized-monetized-christianized-industrialized now overwhelming Earth, here in the destined end-times.
As age and mortality draws closer, the verbal speaking of the word 'love' will increase, and at the same time as its meaning decreases, eventually into oblivion. The Godless hear themselves saying it over and over, but they know deep-deep down, that it is empty words; mere sound like noise (1Co 13:1); this reality slowly drains the Soul.
Word Of Oath | Vow Of Love!
Elohim is powerless to make anyone Love. YHVH can alter a person's brain, or intervene in one's corporeal course; YHVH can change the arraignment of the cosmos, but YHVH cannot do everything or anything. YHVH has awesome powers; even beyond our own Earthly comprehension, but the one thing YHVH cannot do, is to alter our will; human volition is our superpower; our likeness unto YHVH. Adonai our Elohim gave us mere mortals a power that even YHVH cannot override; if it were so, it would not be volition at all. YHVH gave us another awesome power; the power of our word; our vow; our oath (Matt 12:31-33,34-37; 16:18-19).
When we say the words 'I Love you', this is a publicly proclaimed vow or oath: With it, we are either honoring or blaspheming YHVH: To say 'I Love you', and then ' not' Loving -- in action -- is anathema (accursed). It is to spit into the face of YHVH; it is to mock our Master, Messiah Yeshua, and all mocking is just a form of bullying. Your word is an oath; say it and mean it or do not say it (Matt 5:33-37; James 5:12; Gal 6:7-9; Jude 1:17-19; Ecc 5:4-7). Remember, YHVH
is Love (and thus, Love is YHVH); hence, we can also say it this way: I YHVH you, or I Messiah you!
The Law of Love is a commandment, not an option; you either Love everyone, or you will perish, and no matter how my professions of 'faith' you proclaim. We as the future resurrected Saints of YHVH; we Love everyone exactly the same, and therefore, we will let YHVH sort it all out, on Judgment Day. We are not called to judge, nor qualified for
; we are commanded only to Love. If a person cannot Love -- completely; indiscriminately; unconditionally -- anyone, for a mere 7 decades, they cannot (and will not) Love, 7 million people for 7 quintillion decades (
∞ Matt 25
To summarize: the Love of YHVH has ample evidence, and it is as simple and observable as this -- True Love
ends / False love
ends -- and time (eventually and always) exposes which one it is. Love is always enough; it's everything else that falls short or fails us. True Love manifests in action and inaction only (a verb); false love manifests in words alone: i.e. saying 'I love you!' all the time, while living in a state of complete Lovelessness, from adulthood until death, and then beyond the grave; from
and on into the eternal abyss of
