How To Study The Instructions Of Yahuah – It Is Only Difficult When We Personally Make It Difficult
When one is new to Torah observance, one can find oneself at a loss regarding “Where to start”. Its funny that Yahuah left us His “Instructions” or “Words” (mistransliterated as “Law”), without a “Start Here” button to click.
So one will ask friends, search the interweb, read various sections of Torah and generally attempt to piece together a process of study. One thing for sure you will learn, as did I, is this: Obedience is easy until we make it difficult ourselves. It is our selfish flesh that makes obedience difficult, every time.
Book of Romans 13:3 – For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval,4 for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer.5 Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience.
Book of Americans 13:3 – “For Biden is not a terror to submission, but to disobedience. Are you afraid of the anti-Christ? Then do what he says, and you will receive his approval, for he is God’s servant for destruction. But if you disobey Biden, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries our God’s wrath on the wicked. 5Therefore you must rebel, not only to avoid God’s wrath but also for the sake of conscience.”
This is a good video presentation on the obedience to the commands of Yahuah. The one glaring omission is defining “sin” for people, which in 1 John 3:4 is stated “sin is transgression (violation) of the law.”
We have all seen movies or read books about “reality”, and frequently in books and movies the premise is that something will change “reality” in the future, or if time travel is a part of the story, change reality in the past, effecting reality in the future.
There is a personal, direct, on-going “walk” (‘walk’ seems cliche’) with Yahuah that runs through the souls of His sons and daughters. We feel His presence, we talk to Him and He ministers to us through His spirit. We are, to quote the street, “‘feelin’ it, dawg”.
As a man and husband, I am keenly aware that I am commanded to love my wife as I love myself. It is a command, not an idea or a suggestion. Love also covers a multitude of sins, or transgressions of the law.
I don’t know about you, but the social tension/aggression is really growing, especially in the USA.
Recently I watched a video on Youtube produced by Jason A, and it was about street violence. Really shocking stuff, and one guy took a sledge hammer to the car of another guy, then hit the driver of the car in the back with the sledge hammer as the driver tried to run away.
Two days ago I was standing on the sidewalk of a burger joint with my 4-yr old held high in the air and my 10 and 12 yr olds standing there talking to me as we waited for my wife to join us from the car.
