Baptized Into This World, Or, Not Of This World!


   

This is My commandment: That you Love one another as I have Loved you. Greater Love has no man than this; that a man lay down his life for his friends. You are My friends, if you do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth, I call you not servants, for the servant knows not what his Lord does. But I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard of My Father, I have made known unto you.
You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain; that whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in My Name, He may give it you. These things I command you; that you Love one another. If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love his own, but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you!
(John 15:12-19) {cf. James 2:5-10}
Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again and called Yeshua, and said unto Him: Are you the King of the Jews? Yeshua answered him: Do you say this thing of yourself, or did others tell it to you of Me? Pilate answered: Am I a Jew? Your own nation and the chief priests have delivered You unto me. What have You done? Yeshua answered: My Kingdom is not of this world; if My Kingdom were of this world, then My servants would fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: But now, My Kingdom is not from hence. Pilate therefore said unto Him: Are You a king then? Yeshua answered: You say that I am a King. To this end I was born, and for this cause I came into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth hears My voice. (John 18:33-37)
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! Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, also 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! (Luke 16:13-15)
From whence come wars and fighting's among you? Do they not come hence, even of your lusts that war in your members? You lust, and have not: You kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: You fight and war, yet you have not, because you ask not. You ask, and receive not, because you ask amiss, that you may consume it upon your lusts.
You adulterers and adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with Elohim? Whoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of Elohim. Do you think that the scripture says in vain: The Spirit that dwelt in us lusts to envy? But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: Elohim resists the proud but gives grace unto the humble! (James 4:1-6)
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world: If anyone loves the world, the Love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world; the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passes away, and the lust thereof; but he that does the will of Elohim abides forever. (1Jo 2:15-17)
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of Elohim. Because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby you know the Spirit of Elohim: Every spirit that confesses that Messiah Yeshua came in the flesh is of Elohim, and every spirit that confesses not that Messiah Yeshua came in the flesh, is not of Elohim, and this is that spirit of anti-Messiah, whereof you have heard that it should come; and even now is already in the world.
You are of Elohim, my teknion, and have overcome them, because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world. They are of the world, therefore they speak of the world, and the world hears them. We are of Elohim; he that knows Elohim hears us; he that is not of Elohim does not hear us. Hereby we know the Spirit of truth, and the spirit of error. Beloved, let us Love one another, for Love is of Elohim, and everyone that Loves is born of Elohim, and knows Elohim. He that Loves not, knows not Elohim, for Elohim is Love! In this, was manifested the Love of Elohim toward us; because that Elohim sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.
Herein is Love; not that we Loved Elohim, but that He Loved us and sent Adonai to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if Elohim so Loved us, we ought also to Love one another. No man has seen Elohim at any time. If we Love one another, Elohim dwells in us and His Love is perfected in us! Hereby know we that we dwell in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. Whoever shall confess that Yeshua is the Son of Elohim, Elohim dwells in him, and he in Elohim. And we have known and believed the Love that Elohim has to us. Elohim is Love; and he that dwells in Love dwells in Elohim, and Elohim in him.
Herein is our Love made perfect; that we may have boldness in the Day of Judgment, because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love, but perfect Love cast's out fear, because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in Love. We Love Him, because He first Loved us. If a man say: 'I Love Elohim,' but hates his brother, he is a liar, for he that Loves not his brother whom he has seen, how can he Love Elohim whom he has not seen? And this commandment we have from Him; that he who Loves Elohim Loves his brother also! (1Jo 4)
Receive one who is weak in the faith, but not to disputes over doubtful things. For one believes he may eat all things, but he who is weak eats only vegetables. Let not him who eats despise him who does not eat, and let not him who does not eat judge him who eats; for Elohim has received him. Who are you to judge others servants? To his own master he stands or falls. Indeed, he will be made to stand, for Elohim is able to make him stand.
One person esteems one day above another; another esteems every day alike. Let each be fully convinced in his own mind. He who observes the day, observes it to the Lord; and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it. He who eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives Elohim thanks; and he who does not eat, to the Lord he does not eat, and gives Elohim thanks. For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself. For if we live, we live to The Lord; and if we die, we die to The Lord.
Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord's. For to this end, Messiah died and rose and lived again, that He might be Lord of both the dead and the living. But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the Judgment seat of Messiah. For it is written: 'Every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall take an oath!' So then, each of us shall give account of himself to Elohim. Therefore, let us not judge one another anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother's way. (Rom 14:1-10) {cf. Isa 45:22-24}
In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Messiah Yeshua; buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of Elohim, who raised Him from the dead. And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the Cross. Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.
So, let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or Sabbath's, which are shadows of things to come, but the substance is of Messiah Yeshua. Let no one cheat you of your reward, taking delight in false humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, and not holding fast to the Head, from whom all the body, nourished and knit together by joints and ligaments, grows with the increase that is from Elohim.
Therefore, if you died with Messiah from the basic principles of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to ordinances or regulations; 'do not touch, do not taste, do not handle,' which all concern things which perish with the using, after the commandments and doctrines of men? These things indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed religion, and false humility, and a neglect of the body, but are of no value against the indulgences {immorality} of the flesh. (Col 2:11-23)
Jude, the servant of Yeshua the Messiah, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by Elohim the Father, and preserved in Yeshua the Messiah, and called: Mercy unto you, and peace, and Love be multiplied. Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that you should earnestly contend for the faith, which was once delivered unto the Saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old, ordained to this condemnation; Godless men, turning the grace of our Adonai Elohim, into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord; our Lord, Yeshua the Messiah.
I will therefore, put you in remembrance, though you once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. And the angels, which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the Judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Likewise also, these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion {Lordship}, and speak evil of {said} dignities. Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil, as he disputed about the body of Moses, did not bring against him a railing accusation, but said: The Lord rebuke you!
But these speak evil of those things that they know not; but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe unto them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: Clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withers, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, for who is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.
And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying: Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousand Saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are Godless among them of all their Godless deeds which they have committed, and of all their hard speeches which Godless sinners have spoken against Him. These murmur; they are complainers, walking after their own lusts, and their mouth speaks great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage. {e.g: the hero worship of rich & famous humans, and the covert or open desire to be one of them}.
But beloved, you remember the words, which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord, Yeshua the Messiah: How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own Godless lusts. These are they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. But you beloved, building up yourselves on your most Holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit; keep yourselves in the Love of Elohim, looking for the mercy of our Lord, Messiah Yeshua, unto eternal life. And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. Now unto Him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy: To the only wise Lord our Savior be the glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen! (Jude all)
