People are important, and if we are the body of Yahusha, the savior of mankind, we will love and do good to any who persecute us. We will, as much as possible, live in peace with all men. We will be slow to take offense, and quick to forgive, forgiving 70 times seven times lest we be turned over to the torturers.
We follow Him throughout our day. We choose our path and He directs our steps. We cannot bring peace to the world, my dear sisters and brothers.
Remember when Mashiach Yahusha informed us that He did not come to bring peace, but a sword? Remember when He taught us that we will be despised by even our own family members?
He was looking forward, seeing all of us and telling us the facts. We are called to be a “peculiar people”, and if we follow Yahusha we will indeed be peculiar. Yahusha and all of the disciples followed Torah unto death.
That is specifically why Paul was executed. Did you know that? The Rabbis who ran Israel had Paul arrested for keeping Torah AND having the testimony of Yahuah, after which he was shipped off to Rome and eventually executed.
5“We have found this man to be a troublemaker, stirring up riots among the Jews all over the world. He is a ringleader of the Nazarene sect (that’s us, folks – Natsarim) 6and even tried to desecrate the temple; so we seized him.  a 8By examining him yourself you will be able to learn the truth about all these charges we are bringing against him.”
9The other Jews joined in the accusation, asserting that these things were true.
10When the governor motioned for him to speak, Paul replied: “I know that for a number of years you have been a judge over this nation; so I gladly make my defense. 11You can easily verify that no more than twelve days ago I went up to Jerusalem to worship. 12My accusers did not find me arguing with anyone at the temple, or stirring up a crowd in the synagogues or anywhere else in the city. 13And they cannot prove to you the charges they are now making against me. 14However, I admit that I worship the God of our ancestors as a follower of the Way, which they call a sect. I believe everything that is in accordance with the Law and that is written in the Prophets, 15and I have the same hope in God as these men themselves have, that there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked. 16So I strive always to keep my conscience clear before God and man. Acts 24
That is exactly what satan has planned for us 🙂 He hates us above all others on earth, but we are called to walk it, sister. Stand firm in the Way.
Certainly all who travelled with the disciples would also follow Torah, and so on down the line to you, all the way down in Swaziland, or Lufkin, or Adelaide, or Kenya or San Antonio or anywhere else on earth.
Few believe as we believe, because few follow Yahusha, and of those who claim His salvation, very few even know His name, or care to find out. Of those few who care to learn His name, few honor the commands of Yahuah to eat clean food, and of the exceedingly few who do all these things, fewer still honor the stated Holy Days given by Yahuah, or wear the tzitzit on the corners of their garment.
So do you see how rare you are? Sure, we all sin through neglect or omission – ignorance of the Commands, mostly. We are imperfect in our obedience and worship (There is no difference between obedience and worship. They are the same thing.) which is why Yahusha offered His blood for you and me and any who will come.
Exceedingly rare and precious to Yahuah, you are.
You are looked upon with…, imagine the most exquisite small bird, glorious in its beauty, made of bone and blood and feather, but glittering in gold and every precious jewel. Or imagine holding a baby whose face, mouth and eyes are filled with laughter and joy, and that baby hugs you with all its baby might and your love encompasses that baby like a mighty shield of great strength; impenetrable and willing to die yourself, with gladness, to preserve this perfect life in your arms.
Yahuah loves you just that way, but with the immense and limitless love that only He can give. You are His delight, and even though we are grown men and women, we are still His children, loving Him just as the baby loves, for unless we have faith (obedience) as a child…
So we follow in child-like obedience. We believe because He saved us. We tasted, and it was good. We are called because we are chosen, and because we are chosen and follow, we are the Elect. Indeed.
We who follow in the Way, and who love those who make fun of us or despise us because we are peculiar, are the salt of the earth.
It is a gift of immeasurable proportion, and we can never earn it. It was given, and you responded. You said “Yes” to the Spirit of Yahuah when He came to you. At that moment you were marked with a seal, identifying you as His own child, and demons flee when you come.
You will never find Natsarim threatened by demons or those creatures some call “aliens”. They are not alien at all, but find their abode in the bowels of the earth. They are from below, not above. They serve the satan. They are not demons, but something else. The demons are the unhuman spirits of the dead Nephilim. They are as wicked today as they were when they were alive in hybrid form.
Some say they will return as giants because Yahusha says “As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be…”. The flood did not come because of the giants, but because of the wickedness of people, corrupted by the fallen angels.
Wickedness is what to monitor, not the arrival of giants.
Now is the time to embrace your faith, dear sister. Now is the time to lay down your life in service to Yahuah, dear brother, for the crushing teeth of the Red Dragon will soon be savaging the world, specifically seeking to destroy the Natsarim and killing a third of mankind, just as Yahuah banned 1/3rd of the angels from Heaven.
All of these things are just fine, being inside the Will of Yahuah. Let the end come and we do not fear that. Let us fear Yahuah, and serve Him. Let us stand on solid ground, and no matter what comes, to stand. We have everything to gain.
If you do not understand these things, please ask and I will help.
