Under the Blood

May 29, 2021

 

[I do not know how many times I have used this phrase, ‘under the blood’. When I went looking I could not find it in scripture. I know I have heard sermons telling us to put our sins ‘under the blood’ or ‘under the blood of Yahshua’. I also could not find a reference indicating our sins are covered by the blood. So what does scripture, not teachers, preachers, song writers or poets have to say about what happens to our sins?]

 

(Mic 7:17-20 KJV) They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of Yahweh our Almighty, and shall fear because of Thee. 7:18 Who is a Almighty like unto Thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He retaineth not His anger for ever, because He delighteth in mercy. 7:19 He will turn again, He will have compassion upon us; He will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. 7:20 Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which Thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.

 

[Our sins are cast into the depth of the sea, not covered by blood, Yahshua’s or that of animals. The promise is that Yahweh will subdue our iniquities.]

 

Subdue H3533 A primitive root; to tread down; hence negatively to disregard; positively to conquer, subjugate, violate: - bring into bondage, force, keep under, subdue, bring into subjection.

Iniquities H5771 From H5753; perversity, that is, (moral) evil: - fault, iniquity, mischief, punishment (of iniquity), sin.

[So our Father will bring into subjection our perversities, our evil intent, our faults, and then we should recall His promises of old to the children of Abraham and bless Him and praise Him for His great patience and mercy. I also looked up sins covered and could not find it. Our sins are not covered, but they are forgotten by Yahweh. That is our repented sins, those we have not only agreed are sins, but that we not longer have any part with them. Then we have gone to scripture and studied and applied Yahweh’s teachings and instructions to our lives as we learn them. So if our sins are not covered by Yahshua’s blood what was the blood for?]

(Deu 24:1-4 KJV) When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house. 24:2 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife. 24:3 And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife; 24:4 Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before Yahweh: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which Yahweh thy Almighty giveth thee for an inheritance.

[Yahweh divorced all the tribes of Israel at different times, but still all of them. Those wives have taken other husbands, legally, so no possible reunion there. So how does He work this out for us as individuals and nations?]

(Mat 10:32-33 KJV) Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father which is in heaven. 10:33 But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in heaven.

(Luk 10:22 KJV) All things are delivered to Me of My Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal Him.

(Luk 22:28-30 KJV) Ye are they which have continued with Me in My temptations. 22:29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; 22:30 That ye may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

[Three witnesses that Yahshua claims Yahweh as His Father.]

(Mat 3:14-17 KJV) But John forbad Him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? 3:15 And Yahshua answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness. Then he suffered him. 3:16 And Yahshua, when He was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto Him, and He saw the Spirit of Almighty descending like a dove, and lighting upon Him: 3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

(Mat 17:3-5 KJV) And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with Him. 17:4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Yahshua, Most High, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. 17:5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye Him.

(Act 13:30-33 KJV) But Almighty raised Him from the dead: 13:31 And He was seen many days of them which came up with Him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are His witnesses unto the people. 13:32 And we declare unto you glad tidings, how that the promise which was made unto the fathers, 13:33 Almighty hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Yahshua again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.

[Three witnesses that Yahshua is the Son of Yahweh, spoken by Yahweh not man.]

(Joh 10:30 KJV) I and My Father are one.

(Joh 17:1-5 KJV) These words spake Yahshua, and lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; magnify Thy Son, that Thy Son also may magnify Thee: 17:2 As Thou hast given Him power over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as Thou hast given Him. 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee the only true Almighty, and Yahshua Messiah, whom Thou hast sent. 17:4 I have magnified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which Thou gavest Me to do. 17:5 And now, O Father, honor Thou Me with Thine Own Self with the honor which I had with thee before the world was.

[My favorite prayer in the scriptures, it states plainly who is who and what was done for us. The Father of us all has brought the world to the appointed time for His great love to be shown, in the flesh, how much we are worth to Him and to Yahshua. It plainly states that Yahweh gave Yahshua power over all flesh so we could receive eternal life. That life lets us know with our entire being that Yahweh is the only true Almighty, The only Most High, the creator of ALL THAT EXISTS, HAS EXISTED, OR WILL EVER EXIST. It also states the Yahshua was the sent one of Yahweh. Yahshua’s work is finished here on the earth. The Father will/has restored to Yahshua the honor He had from before the world was.]

(Joh 17:6-23 KJV) I have manifested Thy name unto the men which Thou gavest Me out of the world: Thine they were, and Thou gavest them Me; and they have kept Thy word. 17:7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever Thou hast given Me are of Thee. 17:8 For I have given unto them the words which Thou gavest Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from Thee, and They have believed that Thou didst send Me.

[One of the main reason for the religious leaders hatred of Yahshua was the sharing of Yahweh’s name which the leaders held as to set-apart for the common person to utter so they hid it. Another was His ability to speak scripture plainly so all could learn and grow into the perfection/wholeness Yahweh has asked of us. Another biggie was the peoples belief that Yahshua was who He said He was.]

17:9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which Thou hast given Me; for they are Thine. 17:10 And all Mine are Thine, and Thine are Mine; and I am magnified in them. 17:11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to Thee. Set-apart Father, keep through Thine Own Name those whom Thou hast given Me, that they may be one, as We are.

[This prayer is only for those who have chosen to be among the chosen. We have free choice and can refuse the call when it goes forth. Will it come again? None of us knows the hour of death, so no one knows if they will again have an opportunity to repent. As we come into obedience we become a unit of one in thought and purpose just as the Father and Son are one.]

(Joh 17:12 KJV) While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Thy name: those that Thou gavest Me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

 

[Yahweh’s name is part of our protection. Why will some still refuse to use it?]

 

(Joh 17:13-17 KJV) And now come I to Thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have My joy fulfilled in themselves. 17:14 I have given them Thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17:15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

 

[Was not Yahshua’s joy to do the will of His Father? If we have Yahshua’s joy, it is our joy to walk in His word in this world, in the here and now – not in heaven. We are sanctified/set-apart to serve Yahweh not self or an organization. As we come to better understand scripture and its application in our lives it should become a joy to obey-not a burden, not something we look for an escape from.]

 

Sanctify G37 From G40; to make holy, that is, (ceremonially) purify or consecrate; (mentally) to venerate: - hallow, be holy, sanctify.

Holy G40 From ἅγος hagos (an awful thing) compare G53, [H2282]; sacred (physically pure, morally blameless or religious, ceremonially consecrated): - (most) holy (one, thing), saint.

(Heb 7:28 KJV) For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

Consecrated G5048 From G5046; to complete, that is, (literally) accomplish, or (figuratively) consummate (in character): - consecrate, finish, fulfil, (make) perfect.

(Heb 10:19-20 KJV) Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the most set-apart by the blood of Yahshua, 10:20 By a new and living way, which He hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;

Consecrated G1457 From G1456; to renew, that is, inaugurate: - consecrate, dedicate.

Total KJV occurrences: 2

(Heb 9:18 KJV+) Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicatedG1457 without blood.

[Dedicate, set-apart, make perfect, renew, accomplish, all speak of a state of being. Why have I chosen to use set-apart since it is not on any of these lists? All of these words speak to me and say ‘this is or has a special function’ , or is to be used only under certain circumstances. To me it says they are set-apart, not common for any usage we chose. The word holy is derived from the name of a foreign god so I chose not to use it to refer to Yahweh or anything about Him or His. I have been creeping along this path for almost a half century and when I try to run I fall. Yahweh is l long suffering with us and we need to walk fast enough to keep moving, but not so fast we go ahead of what this day in our life was intended to teach us of His will.]

(Joh 17:18-21 KJV) As Thou hast sent Me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify [set-apart] Myself, that they also might be sanctified [set-apart] through the truth. 17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on Me through their word; 17:21 That they all may be one; as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in Us: that the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me.

 

[Our job is the same as Yahshua’s. He came to seek and save those that desire salvation. He did not come to establish large churches. He spent His adulthood teaching Yahweh’s truth which when absorbed into the human heart sets it free from sin and allows communion with our true Father. He also taught the people to follow torah and not to follow the customs of men. He healed their ills and He left that gift to the faith filled until His return. He prayed for you and me even though we existed only in the heart of Yahweh at that time. His desire is for us to have communion with each other and with Yahweh as He did, then those in the world who doubt will believe He is the Sent of Yahweh.]

 

(Joh 17:22-23 KJV) And the honor which Thou gavest Me I have given them; that they may be one, even as We are one: 17:23 I in them, and Thou in Me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

[Safe in the nesting box of Yahweh, inside the safety of Yahshua’s great love, alive and well but known. Perfectly whole! Complete simply because they are whole and complete and we become more like them in fact as we walk the path they have. That is how the world will recognize us by our complete acceptance of Yahweh’s will for each of us as individuals and as a group.]

(Joh 17:24-26 KJV) Father, I will that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be with Me where I am; that they may behold My magnificence, which thou hast given Me: for thou loved Me before the foundation of the world. 17:25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known Thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 17:26 And I have declared unto them Thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith Thou hast loved Me may be in them, and I in them.

[By declaring Yahweh’s name, not titles, not pronouns, His name! When we come to love Yahweh as He loves Yahshua we will be perfect, completely whole.

Yahshua’s blood opened the door for all repented sin, except blasphemy of the Set-Apart Spirit, to be forgiven. Because Yahweh and Yahshua are one Yahshua’s physical death equated Yahweh’s death thereby allowing Yahweh to take back His wife as the wife of His Son. Thus we become the bride of Yahshua.]

Under the Blood

May 29, 2021

 

[I do not know how many times I have used this phrase, ‘under the blood’. When I went looking I could not find it in scripture. I know I have heard sermons telling us to put our sins ‘under the blood’ or ‘under the blood of Yahshua’. I also could not find a reference indicating our sins are covered by the blood. So what does scripture, not teachers, preachers, song writers or poets have to say about what happens to our sins?]

 

(Mic 7:17-20 KJV) They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of Yahweh our Almighty, and shall fear because of Thee. 7:18 Who is a Almighty like unto Thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He retaineth not His anger for ever, because He delighteth in mercy. 7:19 He will turn again, He will have compassion upon us; He will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. 7:20 Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which Thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.

 

[Our sins are cast into the depth of the sea, not covered by blood, Yahshua’s or that of animals. The promise is that Yahweh will subdue our iniquities.]

 

Subdue H3533 A primitive root; to tread down; hence negatively to disregard; positively to conquer, subjugate, violate: - bring into bondage, force, keep under, subdue, bring into subjection.

Iniquities H5771 From H5753; perversity, that is, (moral) evil: - fault, iniquity, mischief, punishment (of iniquity), sin.

[So our Father will bring into subjection our perversities, our evil intent, our faults, and then we should recall His promises of old to the children of Abraham and bless Him and praise Him for His great patience and mercy. I also looked up sins covered and could not find it. Our sins are not covered, but they are forgotten by Yahweh. That is our repented sins, those we have not only agreed are sins, but that we not longer have any part with them. Then we have gone to scripture and studied and applied Yahweh’s teachings and instructions to our lives as we learn them. So if our sins are not covered by Yahshua’s blood what was the blood for?]

(Deu 24:1-4 KJV) When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house. 24:2 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife. 24:3 And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife; 24:4 Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before Yahweh: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which Yahweh thy Almighty giveth thee for an inheritance.

[Yahweh divorced all the tribes of Israel at different times, but still all of them. Those wives have taken other husbands, legally, so no possible reunion there. So how does He work this out for us as individuals and nations?]

(Mat 10:32-33 KJV) Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father which is in heaven. 10:33 But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in heaven.

(Luk 10:22 KJV) All things are delivered to Me of My Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal Him.

(Luk 22:28-30 KJV) Ye are they which have continued with Me in My temptations. 22:29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; 22:30 That ye may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

[Three witnesses that Yahshua claims Yahweh as His Father.]

(Mat 3:14-17 KJV) But John forbad Him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? 3:15 And Yahshua answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness. Then he suffered him. 3:16 And Yahshua, when He was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto Him, and He saw the Spirit of Almighty descending like a dove, and lighting upon Him: 3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

(Mat 17:3-5 KJV) And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with Him. 17:4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Yahshua, Most High, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. 17:5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye Him.

(Act 13:30-33 KJV) But Almighty raised Him from the dead: 13:31 And He was seen many days of them which came up with Him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are His witnesses unto the people. 13:32 And we declare unto you glad tidings, how that the promise which was made unto the fathers, 13:33 Almighty hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Yahshua again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.

[Three witnesses that Yahshua is the Son of Yahweh, spoken by Yahweh not man.]

(Joh 10:30 KJV) I and My Father are one.

(Joh 17:1-5 KJV) These words spake Yahshua, and lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; magnify Thy Son, that Thy Son also may magnify Thee: 17:2 As Thou hast given Him power over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as Thou hast given Him. 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee the only true Almighty, and Yahshua Messiah, whom Thou hast sent. 17:4 I have magnified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which Thou gavest Me to do. 17:5 And now, O Father, honor Thou Me with Thine Own Self with the honor which I had with thee before the world was.

[My favorite prayer in the scriptures, it states plainly who is who and what was done for us. The Father of us all has brought the world to the appointed time for His great love to be shown, in the flesh, how much we are worth to Him and to Yahshua. It plainly states that Yahweh gave Yahshua power over all flesh so we could receive eternal life. That life lets us know with our entire being that Yahweh is the only true Almighty, The only Most High, the creator of ALL THAT EXISTS, HAS EXISTED, OR WILL EVER EXIST. It also states the Yahshua was the sent one of Yahweh. Yahshua’s work is finished here on the earth. The Father will/has restored to Yahshua the honor He had from before the world was.]

(Joh 17:6-23 KJV) I have manifested Thy name unto the men which Thou gavest Me out of the world: Thine they were, and Thou gavest them Me; and they have kept Thy word. 17:7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever Thou hast given Me are of Thee. 17:8 For I have given unto them the words which Thou gavest Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from Thee, and They have believed that Thou didst send Me.

[One of the main reason for the religious leaders hatred of Yahshua was the sharing of Yahweh’s name which the leaders held as to set-apart for the common person to utter so they hid it. Another was His ability to speak scripture plainly so all could learn and grow into the perfection/wholeness Yahweh has asked of us. Another biggie was the peoples belief that Yahshua was who He said He was.]

17:9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which Thou hast given Me; for they are Thine. 17:10 And all Mine are Thine, and Thine are Mine; and I am magnified in them. 17:11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to Thee. Set-apart Father, keep through Thine Own Name those whom Thou hast given Me, that they may be one, as We are.

[This prayer is only for those who have chosen to be among the chosen. We have free choice and can refuse the call when it goes forth. Will it come again? None of us knows the hour of death, so no one knows if they will again have an opportunity to repent. As we come into obedience we become a unit of one in thought and purpose just as the Father and Son are one.]

(Joh 17:12 KJV) While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Thy name: those that Thou gavest Me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

 

[Yahweh’s name is part of our protection. Why will some still refuse to use it?]

 

(Joh 17:13-17 KJV) And now come I to Thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have My joy fulfilled in themselves. 17:14 I have given them Thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17:15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

 

[Was not Yahshua’s joy to do the will of His Father? If we have Yahshua’s joy, it is our joy to walk in His word in this world, in the here and now – not in heaven. We are sanctified/set-apart to serve Yahweh not self or an organization. As we come to better understand scripture and its application in our lives it should become a joy to obey-not a burden, not something we look for an escape from.]

 

Sanctify G37 From G40; to make holy, that is, (ceremonially) purify or consecrate; (mentally) to venerate: - hallow, be holy, sanctify.

Holy G40 From ἅγος hagos (an awful thing) compare G53, [H2282]; sacred (physically pure, morally blameless or religious, ceremonially consecrated): - (most) holy (one, thing), saint.

(Heb 7:28 KJV) For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

Consecrated G5048 From G5046; to complete, that is, (literally) accomplish, or (figuratively) consummate (in character): - consecrate, finish, fulfil, (make) perfect.

(Heb 10:19-20 KJV) Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the most set-apart by the blood of Yahshua, 10:20 By a new and living way, which He hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;

Consecrated G1457 From G1456; to renew, that is, inaugurate: - consecrate, dedicate.

Total KJV occurrences: 2

(Heb 9:18 KJV+) Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicatedG1457 without blood.

[Dedicate, set-apart, make perfect, renew, accomplish, all speak of a state of being. Why have I chosen to use set-apart since it is not on any of these lists? All of these words speak to me and say ‘this is or has a special function’ , or is to be used only under certain circumstances. To me it says they are set-apart, not common for any usage we chose. The word holy is derived from the name of a foreign god so I chose not to use it to refer to Yahweh or anything about Him or His. I have been creeping along this path for almost a half century and when I try to run I fall. Yahweh is l long suffering with us and we need to walk fast enough to keep moving, but not so fast we go ahead of what this day in our life was intended to teach us of His will.]

(Joh 17:18-21 KJV) As Thou hast sent Me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify [set-apart] Myself, that they also might be sanctified [set-apart] through the truth. 17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on Me through their word; 17:21 That they all may be one; as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in Us: that the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me.

 

[Our job is the same as Yahshua’s. He came to seek and save those that desire salvation. He did not come to establish large churches. He spent His adulthood teaching Yahweh’s truth which when absorbed into the human heart sets it free from sin and allows communion with our true Father. He also taught the people to follow torah and not to follow the customs of men. He healed their ills and He left that gift to the faith filled until His return. He prayed for you and me even though we existed only in the heart of Yahweh at that time. His desire is for us to have communion with each other and with Yahweh as He did, then those in the world who doubt will believe He is the Sent of Yahweh.]

 

(Joh 17:22-23 KJV) And the honor which Thou gavest Me I have given them; that they may be one, even as We are one: 17:23 I in them, and Thou in Me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

[Safe in the nesting box of Yahweh, inside the safety of Yahshua’s great love, alive and well but known. Perfectly whole! Complete simply because they are whole and complete and we become more like them in fact as we walk the path they have. That is how the world will recognize us by our complete acceptance of Yahweh’s will for each of us as individuals and as a group.]

(Joh 17:24-26 KJV) Father, I will that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be with Me where I am; that they may behold My magnificence, which thou hast given Me: for thou loved Me before the foundation of the world. 17:25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known Thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 17:26 And I have declared unto them Thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith Thou hast loved Me may be in them, and I in them.

[By declaring Yahweh’s name, not titles, not pronouns, His name! When we come to love Yahweh as He loves Yahshua we will be perfect, completely whole.

Yahshua’s blood opened the door for all repented sin, except blasphemy of the Set-Apart Spirit, to be forgiven. Because Yahweh and Yahshua are one Yahshua’s physical death equated Yahweh’s death thereby allowing Yahweh to take back His wife as the wife of His Son. Thus we become the bride of Yahshua.]

Under the Blood

May 29, 2021

 

[I do not know how many times I have used this phrase, ‘under the blood’. When I went looking I could not find it in scripture. I know I have heard sermons telling us to put our sins ‘under the blood’ or ‘under the blood of Yahshua’. I also could not find a reference indicating our sins are covered by the blood. So what does scripture, not teachers, preachers, song writers or poets have to say about what happens to our sins?]

 

(Mic 7:17-20 KJV) They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of Yahweh our Almighty, and shall fear because of Thee. 7:18 Who is a Almighty like unto Thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He retaineth not His anger for ever, because He delighteth in mercy. 7:19 He will turn again, He will have compassion upon us; He will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. 7:20 Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which Thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.

 

[Our sins are cast into the depth of the sea, not covered by blood, Yahshua’s or that of animals. The promise is that Yahweh will subdue our iniquities.]

 

Subdue H3533 A primitive root; to tread down; hence negatively to disregard; positively to conquer, subjugate, violate: - bring into bondage, force, keep under, subdue, bring into subjection.

Iniquities H5771 From H5753; perversity, that is, (moral) evil: - fault, iniquity, mischief, punishment (of iniquity), sin.

[So our Father will bring into subjection our perversities, our evil intent, our faults, and then we should recall His promises of old to the children of Abraham and bless Him and praise Him for His great patience and mercy. I also looked up sins covered and could not find it. Our sins are not covered, but they are forgotten by Yahweh. That is our repented sins, those we have not only agreed are sins, but that we not longer have any part with them. Then we have gone to scripture and studied and applied Yahweh’s teachings and instructions to our lives as we learn them. So if our sins are not covered by Yahshua’s blood what was the blood for?]

(Deu 24:1-4 KJV) When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house. 24:2 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife. 24:3 And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife; 24:4 Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before Yahweh: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which Yahweh thy Almighty giveth thee for an inheritance.

[Yahweh divorced all the tribes of Israel at different times, but still all of them. Those wives have taken other husbands, legally, so no possible reunion there. So how does He work this out for us as individuals and nations?]

(Mat 10:32-33 KJV) Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father which is in heaven. 10:33 But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in heaven.

(Luk 10:22 KJV) All things are delivered to Me of My Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal Him.

(Luk 22:28-30 KJV) Ye are they which have continued with Me in My temptations. 22:29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; 22:30 That ye may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

[Three witnesses that Yahshua claims Yahweh as His Father.]

(Mat 3:14-17 KJV) But John forbad Him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? 3:15 And Yahshua answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness. Then he suffered him. 3:16 And Yahshua, when He was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto Him, and He saw the Spirit of Almighty descending like a dove, and lighting upon Him: 3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

(Mat 17:3-5 KJV) And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with Him. 17:4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Yahshua, Most High, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. 17:5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye Him.

(Act 13:30-33 KJV) But Almighty raised Him from the dead: 13:31 And He was seen many days of them which came up with Him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are His witnesses unto the people. 13:32 And we declare unto you glad tidings, how that the promise which was made unto the fathers, 13:33 Almighty hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Yahshua again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.

[Three witnesses that Yahshua is the Son of Yahweh, spoken by Yahweh not man.]

(Joh 10:30 KJV) I and My Father are one.

(Joh 17:1-5 KJV) These words spake Yahshua, and lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; magnify Thy Son, that Thy Son also may magnify Thee: 17:2 As Thou hast given Him power over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as Thou hast given Him. 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee the only true Almighty, and Yahshua Messiah, whom Thou hast sent. 17:4 I have magnified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which Thou gavest Me to do. 17:5 And now, O Father, honor Thou Me with Thine Own Self with the honor which I had with thee before the world was.

[My favorite prayer in the scriptures, it states plainly who is who and what was done for us. The Father of us all has brought the world to the appointed time for His great love to be shown, in the flesh, how much we are worth to Him and to Yahshua. It plainly states that Yahweh gave Yahshua power over all flesh so we could receive eternal life. That life lets us know with our entire being that Yahweh is the only true Almighty, The only Most High, the creator of ALL THAT EXISTS, HAS EXISTED, OR WILL EVER EXIST. It also states the Yahshua was the sent one of Yahweh. Yahshua’s work is finished here on the earth. The Father will/has restored to Yahshua the honor He had from before the world was.]

(Joh 17:6-23 KJV) I have manifested Thy name unto the men which Thou gavest Me out of the world: Thine they were, and Thou gavest them Me; and they have kept Thy word. 17:7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever Thou hast given Me are of Thee. 17:8 For I have given unto them the words which Thou gavest Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from Thee, and They have believed that Thou didst send Me.

[One of the main reason for the religious leaders hatred of Yahshua was the sharing of Yahweh’s name which the leaders held as to set-apart for the common person to utter so they hid it. Another was His ability to speak scripture plainly so all could learn and grow into the perfection/wholeness Yahweh has asked of us. Another biggie was the peoples belief that Yahshua was who He said He was.]

17:9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which Thou hast given Me; for they are Thine. 17:10 And all Mine are Thine, and Thine are Mine; and I am magnified in them. 17:11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to Thee. Set-apart Father, keep through Thine Own Name those whom Thou hast given Me, that they may be one, as We are.

[This prayer is only for those who have chosen to be among the chosen. We have free choice and can refuse the call when it goes forth. Will it come again? None of us knows the hour of death, so no one knows if they will again have an opportunity to repent. As we come into obedience we become a unit of one in thought and purpose just as the Father and Son are one.]

(Joh 17:12 KJV) While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Thy name: those that Thou gavest Me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

 

[Yahweh’s name is part of our protection. Why will some still refuse to use it?]

 

(Joh 17:13-17 KJV) And now come I to Thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have My joy fulfilled in themselves. 17:14 I have given them Thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17:15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

 

[Was not Yahshua’s joy to do the will of His Father? If we have Yahshua’s joy, it is our joy to walk in His word in this world, in the here and now – not in heaven. We are sanctified/set-apart to serve Yahweh not self or an organization. As we come to better understand scripture and its application in our lives it should become a joy to obey-not a burden, not something we look for an escape from.]

 

Sanctify G37 From G40; to make holy, that is, (ceremonially) purify or consecrate; (mentally) to venerate: - hallow, be holy, sanctify.

Holy G40 From ἅγος hagos (an awful thing) compare G53, [H2282]; sacred (physically pure, morally blameless or religious, ceremonially consecrated): - (most) holy (one, thing), saint.

(Heb 7:28 KJV) For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

Consecrated G5048 From G5046; to complete, that is, (literally) accomplish, or (figuratively) consummate (in character): - consecrate, finish, fulfil, (make) perfect.

(Heb 10:19-20 KJV) Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the most set-apart by the blood of Yahshua, 10:20 By a new and living way, which He hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;

Consecrated G1457 From G1456; to renew, that is, inaugurate: - consecrate, dedicate.

Total KJV occurrences: 2

(Heb 9:18 KJV+) Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicatedG1457 without blood.

[Dedicate, set-apart, make perfect, renew, accomplish, all speak of a state of being. Why have I chosen to use set-apart since it is not on any of these lists? All of these words speak to me and say ‘this is or has a special function’ , or is to be used only under certain circumstances. To me it says they are set-apart, not common for any usage we chose. The word holy is derived from the name of a foreign god so I chose not to use it to refer to Yahweh or anything about Him or His. I have been creeping along this path for almost a half century and when I try to run I fall. Yahweh is l long suffering with us and we need to walk fast enough to keep moving, but not so fast we go ahead of what this day in our life was intended to teach us of His will.]

(Joh 17:18-21 KJV) As Thou hast sent Me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify [set-apart] Myself, that they also might be sanctified [set-apart] through the truth. 17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on Me through their word; 17:21 That they all may be one; as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in Us: that the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me.

 

[Our job is the same as Yahshua’s. He came to seek and save those that desire salvation. He did not come to establish large churches. He spent His adulthood teaching Yahweh’s truth which when absorbed into the human heart sets it free from sin and allows communion with our true Father. He also taught the people to follow torah and not to follow the customs of men. He healed their ills and He left that gift to the faith filled until His return. He prayed for you and me even though we existed only in the heart of Yahweh at that time. His desire is for us to have communion with each other and with Yahweh as He did, then those in the world who doubt will believe He is the Sent of Yahweh.]

 

(Joh 17:22-23 KJV) And the honor which Thou gavest Me I have given them; that they may be one, even as We are one: 17:23 I in them, and Thou in Me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

[Safe in the nesting box of Yahweh, inside the safety of Yahshua’s great love, alive and well but known. Perfectly whole! Complete simply because they are whole and complete and we become more like them in fact as we walk the path they have. That is how the world will recognize us by our complete acceptance of Yahweh’s will for each of us as individuals and as a group.]

(Joh 17:24-26 KJV) Father, I will that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be with Me where I am; that they may behold My magnificence, which thou hast given Me: for thou loved Me before the foundation of the world. 17:25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known Thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 17:26 And I have declared unto them Thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith Thou hast loved Me may be in them, and I in them.

[By declaring Yahweh’s name, not titles, not pronouns, His name! When we come to love Yahweh as He loves Yahshua we will be perfect, completely whole.

Yahshua’s blood opened the door for all repented sin, except blasphemy of the Set-Apart Spirit, to be forgiven. Because Yahweh and Yahshua are one Yahshua’s physical death equated Yahweh’s death thereby allowing Yahweh to take back His wife as the wife of His Son. Thus we become the bride of Yahshua.]

Under the Blood

May 29, 2021

 

[I do not know how many times I have used this phrase, ‘under the blood’. When I went looking I could not find it in scripture. I know I have heard sermons telling us to put our sins ‘under the blood’ or ‘under the blood of Yahshua’. I also could not find a reference indicating our sins are covered by the blood. So what does scripture, not teachers, preachers, song writers or poets have to say about what happens to our sins?]

 

(Mic 7:17-20 KJV) They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of Yahweh our Almighty, and shall fear because of Thee. 7:18 Who is a Almighty like unto Thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He retaineth not His anger for ever, because He delighteth in mercy. 7:19 He will turn again, He will have compassion upon us; He will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea. 7:20 Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which Thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.

 

[Our sins are cast into the depth of the sea, not covered by blood, Yahshua’s or that of animals. The promise is that Yahweh will subdue our iniquities.]

 

Subdue H3533 A primitive root; to tread down; hence negatively to disregard; positively to conquer, subjugate, violate: - bring into bondage, force, keep under, subdue, bring into subjection.

Iniquities H5771 From H5753; perversity, that is, (moral) evil: - fault, iniquity, mischief, punishment (of iniquity), sin.

[So our Father will bring into subjection our perversities, our evil intent, our faults, and then we should recall His promises of old to the children of Abraham and bless Him and praise Him for His great patience and mercy. I also looked up sins covered and could not find it. Our sins are not covered, but they are forgotten by Yahweh. That is our repented sins, those we have not only agreed are sins, but that we not longer have any part with them. Then we have gone to scripture and studied and applied Yahweh’s teachings and instructions to our lives as we learn them. So if our sins are not covered by Yahshua’s blood what was the blood for?]

(Deu 24:1-4 KJV) When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house. 24:2 And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife. 24:3 And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife; 24:4 Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before Yahweh: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which Yahweh thy Almighty giveth thee for an inheritance.

[Yahweh divorced all the tribes of Israel at different times, but still all of them. Those wives have taken other husbands, legally, so no possible reunion there. So how does He work this out for us as individuals and nations?]

(Mat 10:32-33 KJV) Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father which is in heaven. 10:33 But whosoever shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father which is in heaven.

(Luk 10:22 KJV) All things are delivered to Me of My Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal Him.

(Luk 22:28-30 KJV) Ye are they which have continued with Me in My temptations. 22:29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; 22:30 That ye may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

[Three witnesses that Yahshua claims Yahweh as His Father.]

(Mat 3:14-17 KJV) But John forbad Him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? 3:15 And Yahshua answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness. Then he suffered him. 3:16 And Yahshua, when He was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto Him, and He saw the Spirit of Almighty descending like a dove, and lighting upon Him: 3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

(Mat 17:3-5 KJV) And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with Him. 17:4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Yahshua, Most High, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. 17:5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye Him.

(Act 13:30-33 KJV) But Almighty raised Him from the dead: 13:31 And He was seen many days of them which came up with Him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are His witnesses unto the people. 13:32 And we declare unto you glad tidings, how that the promise which was made unto the fathers, 13:33 Almighty hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Yahshua again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.

[Three witnesses that Yahshua is the Son of Yahweh, spoken by Yahweh not man.]

(Joh 10:30 KJV) I and My Father are one.

(Joh 17:1-5 KJV) These words spake Yahshua, and lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; magnify Thy Son, that Thy Son also may magnify Thee: 17:2 As Thou hast given Him power over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as Thou hast given Him. 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee the only true Almighty, and Yahshua Messiah, whom Thou hast sent. 17:4 I have magnified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which Thou gavest Me to do. 17:5 And now, O Father, honor Thou Me with Thine Own Self with the honor which I had with thee before the world was.

[My favorite prayer in the scriptures, it states plainly who is who and what was done for us. The Father of us all has brought the world to the appointed time for His great love to be shown, in the flesh, how much we are worth to Him and to Yahshua. It plainly states that Yahweh gave Yahshua power over all flesh so we could receive eternal life. That life lets us know with our entire being that Yahweh is the only true Almighty, The only Most High, the creator of ALL THAT EXISTS, HAS EXISTED, OR WILL EVER EXIST. It also states the Yahshua was the sent one of Yahweh. Yahshua’s work is finished here on the earth. The Father will/has restored to Yahshua the honor He had from before the world was.]

(Joh 17:6-23 KJV) I have manifested Thy name unto the men which Thou gavest Me out of the world: Thine they were, and Thou gavest them Me; and they have kept Thy word. 17:7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever Thou hast given Me are of Thee. 17:8 For I have given unto them the words which Thou gavest Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from Thee, and They have believed that Thou didst send Me.

[One of the main reason for the religious leaders hatred of Yahshua was the sharing of Yahweh’s name which the leaders held as to set-apart for the common person to utter so they hid it. Another was His ability to speak scripture plainly so all could learn and grow into the perfection/wholeness Yahweh has asked of us. Another biggie was the peoples belief that Yahshua was who He said He was.]

17:9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which Thou hast given Me; for they are Thine. 17:10 And all Mine are Thine, and Thine are Mine; and I am magnified in them. 17:11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to Thee. Set-apart Father, keep through Thine Own Name those whom Thou hast given Me, that they may be one, as We are.

[This prayer is only for those who have chosen to be among the chosen. We have free choice and can refuse the call when it goes forth. Will it come again? None of us knows the hour of death, so no one knows if they will again have an opportunity to repent. As we come into obedience we become a unit of one in thought and purpose just as the Father and Son are one.]

(Joh 17:12 KJV) While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Thy name: those that Thou gavest Me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

 

[Yahweh’s name is part of our protection. Why will some still refuse to use it?]

 

(Joh 17:13-17 KJV) And now come I to Thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have My joy fulfilled in themselves. 17:14 I have given them Thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17:15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

 

[Was not Yahshua’s joy to do the will of His Father? If we have Yahshua’s joy, it is our joy to walk in His word in this world, in the here and now – not in heaven. We are sanctified/set-apart to serve Yahweh not self or an organization. As we come to better understand scripture and its application in our lives it should become a joy to obey-not a burden, not something we look for an escape from.]

 

Sanctify G37 From G40; to make holy, that is, (ceremonially) purify or consecrate; (mentally) to venerate: - hallow, be holy, sanctify.

Holy G40 From ἅγος hagos (an awful thing) compare G53, [H2282]; sacred (physically pure, morally blameless or religious, ceremonially consecrated): - (most) holy (one, thing), saint.

(Heb 7:28 KJV) For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, maketh the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

Consecrated G5048 From G5046; to complete, that is, (literally) accomplish, or (figuratively) consummate (in character): - consecrate, finish, fulfil, (make) perfect.

(Heb 10:19-20 KJV) Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the most set-apart by the blood of Yahshua, 10:20 By a new and living way, which He hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;

Consecrated G1457 From G1456; to renew, that is, inaugurate: - consecrate, dedicate.

Total KJV occurrences: 2

(Heb 9:18 KJV+) Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicatedG1457 without blood.

[Dedicate, set-apart, make perfect, renew, accomplish, all speak of a state of being. Why have I chosen to use set-apart since it is not on any of these lists? All of these words speak to me and say ‘this is or has a special function’ , or is to be used only under certain circumstances. To me it says they are set-apart, not common for any usage we chose. The word holy is derived from the name of a foreign god so I chose not to use it to refer to Yahweh or anything about Him or His. I have been creeping along this path for almost a half century and when I try to run I fall. Yahweh is l long suffering with us and we need to walk fast enough to keep moving, but not so fast we go ahead of what this day in our life was intended to teach us of His will.]

(Joh 17:18-21 KJV) As Thou hast sent Me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 17:19 And for their sakes I sanctify [set-apart] Myself, that they also might be sanctified [set-apart] through the truth. 17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on Me through their word; 17:21 That they all may be one; as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in Us: that the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me.

 

[Our job is the same as Yahshua’s. He came to seek and save those that desire salvation. He did not come to establish large churches. He spent His adulthood teaching Yahweh’s truth which when absorbed into the human heart sets it free from sin and allows communion with our true Father. He also taught the people to follow torah and not to follow the customs of men. He healed their ills and He left that gift to the faith filled until His return. He prayed for you and me even though we existed only in the heart of Yahweh at that time. His desire is for us to have communion with each other and with Yahweh as He did, then those in the world who doubt will believe He is the Sent of Yahweh.]

 

(Joh 17:22-23 KJV) And the honor which Thou gavest Me I have given them; that they may be one, even as We are one: 17:23 I in them, and Thou in Me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

[Safe in the nesting box of Yahweh, inside the safety of Yahshua’s great love, alive and well but known. Perfectly whole! Complete simply because they are whole and complete and we become more like them in fact as we walk the path they have. That is how the world will recognize us by our complete acceptance of Yahweh’s will for each of us as individuals and as a group.]

(Joh 17:24-26 KJV) Father, I will that they also, whom Thou hast given Me, be with Me where I am; that they may behold My magnificence, which thou hast given Me: for thou loved Me before the foundation of the world. 17:25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known Thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 17:26 And I have declared unto them Thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith Thou hast loved Me may be in them, and I in them.

[By declaring Yahweh’s name, not titles, not pronouns, His name! When we come to love Yahweh as He loves Yahshua we will be perfect, completely whole.

Yahshua’s blood opened the door for all repented sin, except blasphemy of the Set-Apart Spirit, to be forgiven. Because Yahweh and Yahshua are one Yahshua’s physical death equated Yahweh’s death thereby allowing Yahweh to take back His wife as the wife of His Son. Thus we become the bride of Yahshua.]
