NOTE: TS2009 = The Scriptures 2009
As Messiah showed us the Father he showed us the heart of humility, the heart of a child. Not that he is childish, but rather child like. A child (lamb) is gentle, trusting, teachable, loving and forgiving. A child takes things at face value.
Messiah praying to the Father thanked him that he has hidden his truths from the wise and prudent (goats) and revealed it unto babes. It only takes a babe to understand the Father. A babe is humble, doesn’t lift themselves up, they do not elevate themselves above others.
The goats strain their brain to understand things and then teach watered down doctrines to others who are naive enough to fall for a lie or partial truth. In many cases the goat teaches things that are only partially wrong so people will receive them. If it were all wrong obviously no righteous person would receive it and they deceive many because of this. These goats are usually found in leadership positions in churches and their associated central offices in the denominations.
“But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi,’ for One is your Teacher, the Messiah, and you are all brothers. “And do not call anyone on earth your father, for One is your Father, He who is in the heavens. “Neither be called leaders, for One is your Leader, the Messiah. “But the greatest among you shall be your servant. “And whoever exalts himself shall be humbled, and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.
Mattithyahu (Matthew) 23:8-12 TS2009
Because the Father and Son are one, the Son takes on the nature of the Father. Just as it is when we are filled with the Ruach (born again) we take on the nature of the Father. This is how we can discern if a person is born again or not. It is not because they say they are born again, but because of their works (actions). Messiah taught us we can know them by their fruit. If a person truly is in Messiah they will take on the nature of the Father. This is something that cannot be faked. Those who truly are born again will be able to discern others who are also truly born again.
If you are born again the love of the Father will be evident in you. You will not love the things of this world, you will not act like this world, in fact scripture declares we are a peculiar people.
“Come to Me, all you who labour and are burdened, and I shall give you rest. “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am meek and humble in heart, and you shall find rest for your beings “For My yoke is gentle and My burden is light.”
Mattithyahu (Matthew) 11:28-30 TS2009
I recall watching a video where a man exclaimed in arrogance, “I’M A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN.” In his videos he bragged about his mulitple properties, new property in the mountains he was planning on buying. He bought a very expensive truck and bragged about that, then bought a boat, more trucks, etc. People, this is not the Spirit of Elohim!
When we are born again we have been filled with the Ruach (Holy Spirit) and will take on the nature of the Ruach since it is the Father’s nature. We will become humble, we will have love for other people and not our possessions. We will not love the things of this world because when we do the scriptures declare the love of the Father is not in the people who do.
Do not love the world nor that which is in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. Because all that is in the world – the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life – is not of the Father but is of the world.
Yoḥanan Aleph (1 John) 2:15-16 TS2009
Our Heavenly Father has provided the way of freedom to us, the door that delivers from everything that would bind us and take us into the lake of fire. That door is Messiah, he is the only way to the Father. He brings us the only true freedom we can ever have. The other choice to not serve him will leave us bound and send us to the lake of fire in the end. We cannot escape these simple truths. Some many deny it, say they don’t believe it. But their unbelief does not make these truths void.
We cannot focus on the Father unless we know his son Yeshua. It is Yeshua who has shown us the Father clearly.
Philip said to Him, “Master, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.” יהושע said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father, and how do you say, ‘Show us the Father’? “Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak from Myself. But the Father who stays in Me does His works. “Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, otherwise believe Me because of the works themselves. Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he shall do also. And greater works than these he shall do, because I go to My Father.
Yoḥanan (John) 14:8-12 TS2009
Our Father in Heaven is so pure and Holy no man can even come close to him and live. Do you think it was the Father who was on Mount Sinai when Moses went up on it for 40 days and nights and the whole mountain trembled? No, his power is far greater than that and his brightness far greater than any man can imagine. Messiah told us that no man has seen the Father at any time, only he has seen the Father.
And out of His completeness we all did receive, and favour upon favour, for the Torah was given through Mosheh – the favour and the truth came through יהושע Messiah. No one has ever seen Elohim. All came to be through Him, The only brought-forth Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He did declare.
