DID YOU KNOW that the Words of YHVH are Life?
"But answering, He (Y'hoshua) said, It has been written: 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but on every Word going out of (the) mouth of YHVH.'" [Matthew 4:4, quoted from Deuteronomy 8:3] "And this is everlasting life, that they may know You, the only true Elohim, and Y'hoshua :(the) Messiah, whom You have sent." [John 17:3]
Some of Y'hoshua's disciples had gone away and returned to the things they had left behind, and no longer walked with Him."Therefore, Y'hoshua said to the Twelve, 'Do you also wish to go?'Then Simon Peter answered to Him, 'Master, to whom shall we go? You have (the) words of everlasting life.'" [John 6:67-68]
WHEN WE HEAR HIS WORDS,
WE BRING LIFE INTO OUR BEING.
WHEN WE SPEAK THESE WORDS,
WE ARE SPEAKING LIFE.
WHEN WE DO THESE WORDS,
WE ARE LIVING.
But no matter how beautiful the words are, they are of no value if we do not make them a part of our lives by living them. Even more importantly, according to the Messiah Y'hoshua, if we disregard them, it means that, "The (one) who does not love Me does not keep My Words. And the Word which you hear is not Mine but of the Father who sent Me." [John 13:24]
Constantly reading and applying the Word into our lives will wash away our spots and blemishes, those emotions and actions which spring from the root of self-centeredness.
Paul explained it so beautifully in Ephesians 5:25-27: "Husbands love your wives, even as (the) Messiah also loved the assembly (of called out ones) and gave Himself up on its behalf, that He might set it apart, cleansing (it) by the washing of the water of the Word, that He might present it to Himself (as) the glorious assembly (of called out ones), not having spot or wrinkle, or any such things, but that it be set apart without blemish."
YET TO COME: "And I heard as a sound of a huge crowd and as a sound of many waters, and a sound of strong thunders, saying, Hallelujah! For YHVH Elohanu, the Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and let us exult, and we will give honor to Him, because the marriage of the Lamb came, and His wife prepared herself. And it was given to her that she be clothed in fine linen, pure and bright; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the set apart ones. And he says to me, 'Write: Blessed (are) the ones having been called to the supper of the marriage of the Lamb. And he says to me, 'These Words of Elohim are true.'" [Revelation 19:6-9]
"Here is the patience of the set apart ones; here (are) the ones keeping the commands of Elohim and the trust of Y'hoshua." [Revelation 14:12] Being obedient to YHVH always, and trusting Him the same way the Messiah Y'hoshua trusted Him when He was sorely tested here on earth.
King Solomon had some harsh words for those who choose not to hear and obey the Words of the Torah, the Words of the Eternal: "He that turns away his ear from hearing the Torah, even his prayer shall be an abomination." [Proverbs 28:9]
