There is only one People, those who choose to abide by Yah's Instructions and have the testimony of His Son, Yahshua. May you be blessed, safe and secure in the will of Abba Father. This may be the first time you’ve heard this, but from today going forward it should be kept in mind, especially if you want to achieve salvation, which I’m sure you do? When we read verse 21 the Messiah tells the Samarian woman that there will come a time when Israel will no longer worship in Jerusalem or the mountains.. That time that he spoke of was after his resurrection and became permanent after the temples destruction in 70AD. When this thing went down, something amazing took place; something earth shattering. We’ve wasted enough time as it is. The woman in this story lived in a very challenging societal, religious and cultural construct–probably one of the most challenging that our Master had to deal with during His brief earthly ministry. As the story goes, she’d been married five-times and was likely shaking up with another fellow in one form or another. Secondly, biblical, extra-biblical and the stated history of the Samaritans themselves, support that the Samaritans were Jews, if not as Matthew Henry, Biblical Commentator, “mongrel Jews,” or more accurately, mongrel Hebrews. The immediate thought is usually a ghost or the invisible, which is true, but in the context that we are using it here we’ll be looking at the scripture definitions to give us a direct understanding. Nov 24, 2015 - This Pin was discovered by Jonathan Philyaw. In Hebrew thinking, what a man trusts and follows determines what a man does. Oh my, oh my, the sky is about to fall down upon us! Awesome. For Abba is going to perform a work in every genuine believer that will elevate him and her to a place where true worship can happen—not some dead, meaningless attempt at communing with the Creator. The woman, recognizing that she was considered impure and unclean by her cousins the Jews, saw our Master’s outreach to her for a drink of water as nothing more than a joke and another potential insult to her and her community. Indeed. In fact, Michael has even developed a doctrine around the story of the Samaritan woman and her encounter with Master–that the two-days that He and his disciples spent in Samaria preaching the Gospel to the Samaritans, was a “prophetic picture of the time of the gentiles” as depicted in Leviticus 23:22. What Are The Old Testament Feasts Fulfilled In The New Testament? Master told us: “We who hunger and thirst after righteousness shall be filled.” (Matthew 5:6). I’ve never really given much credence or attention to the story of the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s well until just recently. Shall it declare your truth? 7 Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. The woman, whom I believe still did not understand what Master was talking about, sought to take this conversation a bit further by asking him: “Okay, I’ll bite: give me this water so I will not be thirsty nor come all the way here to draw.” (John 4:15; NAS). Yet when we drill down to the heart of this matter, the issue is not divorce or remarriage or shacking up that Master was trying to get at. In John 4: 24 we are told that the Most High is a “Spirit” so we must worship him in “spirit and in truth”, This is where the receiving of the Holy Spirit comes in, because it gives us a conscience which points us in the direction of the Most High’s Commandments. 10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people: The scriptures above makes it clear that this renewed covenant would be made. “Maybe all that which you’ve just spoken to me is true,” she responds to Master. But recognizing and acknowledging to Master that he was a prophet of a particularly unique pedigree, she sought to take advantage of this opportunity by bringing up one of the most divisive issues separating Samaritans Jews from their Orthodox Jewish cousins: that being the issue of the place of worship being in Jerusalem versus Mount Gerizim. Upon hearing of her past and present marital life from a man she’d never met before, she starts to realize that she is not having just some ordinary encounter with another kook off the street down by the watering hole. So the question we need to ask ourselves is, does that mean Devils will go to heaven? And share it with somebody that needs it. The world tends to trivialize the things that the Most High says are bad by claiming they applied in the past times, or that the Messiah’s death covers everything, providing us with immunity to sin. To worship God in spirit and truth necessarily involves loving Him with heart, soul, mind and strength. He talks to her about Him being someone who is special and who has the ability to provide her “living water.” Crazy huh? A saint recently had a question about wine in the Lords supper and to edify the body; you can see my email below with **** by my answer.. They were essentially impostors and they would pray upon the most unsuspecting and ignorant of the community. 31:5 Into your hand I commit my spirit: you have redeemed me, O Yahweh God of truth. The issue her was this mans heart not his money. Were and are the Samaritans gentiles in the classic sense of what we understand gentiles to be? What are we to do? God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth. It’s unlike the physical water that we all need to sustain our physical life. But I don’t believe Master would place His credibility on the line by hanging out and teaching the Gospel to Gentiles when He clearly stated that His mission was to the “lost sheep of the house of Israel.”. Now we know that worship means to “bow down” or “show reverence” a thing and to do this in spirit means to do it “rationally with an understanding” we can apply the terms together…. (John 4:11, 12) So the woman was essentially waving Master off and telling Him to get a life. The woman’s immediate response to the request for a drink from Jacob’s well was: “How is it that You, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a woman of Samaria? During that time we are not to buy and sell or work. This is why the scriptures say to study to show yourself approved unto god, and rightly divide the word of truth, without shame (2 Timothy 2:15). In Hebrew, worship meaning is seen in the word, Shachah which means – to prostrate in homage to God: to make obeisance, to bow or reverence. This belief requires Faith which scriptures describes as: 11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. But what I do know, is that the story of the Samaritan was one of the first introductions of the concept of worshiping our Creator in both Spirit and Truth; a concept that Michael, in his chronology ignored. Indeed, this is a new insight worthy to read and be studied upon. 17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s. They worshiped the God of Israel only, to whom they erected a temple on Mount Gerizim, in competition with that of Jerusalem.”, The Jews of course take issue with the Samaritans and their stated contention that are of Hebrew descent, and to a certain extent, the Jews have good reason for some of their biases against them–the main one being the Samaritan’s man-made religion that departs from Torah (John 4:20-22). But there’s little evidence of this having ever taken place among many of the members of our community. There’s coming a day when the true worshiper can go into his or her closet and worship the Father directly, without need for all the trappings of a temple and the intercession of men acting as priest. The only reason we are where we are today is because of Master’s revolutionary stance. A person who was with Lot escaped and was able to tell Abram about the abduction, and the Bible gives this description “then one who had escaped came and told Abram the Hebrew..”. Well, my early years in this Faith movement were met with teachings and warnings against spirituality–especially anything having to do with the Holy Spirit. He had not directly revealed His identity to any other group prior to this encounter. The oil symbolized the Holy Spirit of God which accompanied the anointing, and empowered the anointed one with the necessary capacity to fulfill his newly bestowed role. Samaritan Judaism is a bunch of crock and always has been. So what then is Master saying in His statement regarding the true worshipers worshiping Yahuah in Spirit and in Truth? The spirit being referenced here can be defined as a “current of air” or “the rational soul of a person”. When we apply these two together we need to ensure that it is done the right way truthfully. (Now He said this about the Spirit whom those who trusted in Him were to receive later–the Spirit had not yet been given, because Yeshua had not yet been glorified. But is that belief and teaching accurate? However, we have ready access to the benefits of this renewed covenant whereby Abba’s Word can be written in our minds and upon our hearts. I thought that was a pretty good response to a rather concerning question. Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness. We should not be so worried about one another in terms of how we keep Torah and splitting hairs about the nuances of Torah. Now we know that when we read this verse what is being said is that a person must worship the Most High rationally and truthfully. There is only one Faith which was once delivered to Set Apart believers. But after the Messiah’s arrival, death and resurrection a change happened, we can read about this in Hebrews 10…, What happened after the change? The Most High’s feast days will fill the void for the worldly celebrations such as Easter, Christmas and the other worldly celebrations. Other scriptures also reveal that the love of money is the root of all evil (1 Timothy 6:10). Keeping Sabbath means from sundown on Friday to Sundown on Saturday. If you haven’t heard of the scripture which says “faith without works is dead”, you should have, but if not you can read about it below: 14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? First we must look at the context of what is being said to set the stage…. As I was reading this passage, I became intrigued by the concept of “living water.” What is this “living water” that Master speaks of. Proof of woks as commandments can be seen throughout the scriptures, especially when judgement is pronounced. The event at Horeb may be found recorded in Exodus 17:1-6, and it reads: “All the congregation of the people of Israel moved on from the wilderness of Sin by stages, according to the commandment of the LORD, and camped at Rephidim, but there was no water for the people to drink. Before we get to that, Revelation tells us that we will be judged according to our works: 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. Until next time fellow Saints in Training. 17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. I would submit that probably the biggest hurdle that most of us have to work through in this Faith of ours is the age-old battle that exists between the physical and the spiritual. No longer will the worshiper have to seek forgiveness from the Creator by going through a frail, sinful man who offers up the life of an animal each time you sin. 15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food. She was a woman–second mark against her. John records the words of Master: “Whoever puts his trust in me, as the Scripture says, rivers of living water will flow from his inmost being! Yet that “bit of information”–as vital and essential as it is–has either been grossly misused because of gross misunderstanding, or it has been completely ignored because of complacency and or misinterpretations by some of our Bible teachers. “David … You can read that she is from Samaria. Master knew of the true identity of the Samaritans and thus He preached the Gospel to them over the course of two-days. The ESV identifies two-meanings to the phrase: (1) fresh spring, running water that we used in various Torah-directed purification rituals: “He shall take the live bird with the cedarwood and the scarlet yarn and the hyssop and dip them and the live bird in the blood of the bird that was killed over the fresh water.” (Leviticus 14:6; ESV) Other passages include Deuteronomy 21:4 and Leviticus 14:50-52. A rare visitation from a prophet. Above we see that the rich man was a keep of all the commandments, but he coveted (Exodus 20:17) his riches because when the Messiah told him to go and sell his things and give to the people he went away sad. The Messiah told us that if we love him we should keep his commandments. The Scriptures say that the Word of God is true (John 1:14) and that Jesus is Truth (Psalms 119:160; John 14:6) incarnate. Essentially, we are encouraged not to operate independently in the Spirit and, for that matter, not fulfill our calling and commission as disciples of Yeshua Messiah–unless the various ministries sanction it. Now let’s look at the Judgement for the dietary laws: 15 For, behold, the Lord will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. (verse 26). But since she asked, Master wanted to quickly set the record straight: (1) your system of worship is not of Yahuah; (2) true worship of the Creator of the Universe is practiced by orthodox Jews. Because the scriptures tell us faith without works (Laws) is dead, which will be explained…. How will we function? 14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. 26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. 16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: This is the definition of faith. 25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? But in most people’s mind worship is showing respect to a thing. 16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? The writer of Hebrews reiterated the prophecy that was given to the Prophet Jeremiah regarding the renewed covenant and it reads as follows: “For finding fault with them, He says, “Behold, days are coming, says Yahuah, when I will effect a new covenant with the House of Israel and with the House of Judah; not like the covenant which I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; for they did not continue in my covenant, and I did not care for them, says Yahuah. Most often people give their worship to Governments and Pastors who in most cases are the false prophets of the world. To Curse is to Love At Times: Psalm 109 The Best Jesus/Yahshua Movie Ever: RISEN The Unity, the One-ness the At-one-ment of Yah, even Yahshua . Of course, we do the best we can in this respect. Above you can clearly see that we are judged according to works, which are the laws, which so many wrongly think are a thing of the past. The company's filing status is listed as Automatic Dissolution and its File Number is 847149. Although keep in mind there are more commandments and laws we need to adhere to. For instance some may equate worship to reverencing the Most High specifically, when the truth is worship can be given to anything a person reveres, fears or has respect for. This is untrue and the scriptures show us that there are punishments for disobeying righteous works (Commands) which we are told to do. Her revealed marital history was just an opener to get this woman’s attention. An easy way to remember what seafood is clean, is to only eat things form the sea that have scales and fins, if they don’t they’re unclean…. 18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief. Halal–To be clear, to shine, to boast, to show, to rave, to celebrate, to be clamorously foolish. The second aspect of “living water” has to do with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, the Ruach Kodesh, in each of us. Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock at Horeb, and you shall strike the rock, and water shall come out of it, and the people will drink.” And Moses did so, in the sight of the elders of Israel. An interesting part of these scriptures is James 2:19 which says that even Devils know who the Most High is, and tremble…. We’ve not left the base of that mountain and we’ve not embraced the indwelling, the power and the might of Abba’s precious Ruach HaKodesh. The Registered Agent on file for this company is Gail Janine Roberts and is … In Scripture, the word is applied both to human beings and to God. by Rod Thomas | Feb 18, 2017 | Blog, Podcasts. In fact, she probably thought, at first, that this was a crazy man. And also when we find the word worship in Revelation 22:8, We find the Greek word: 8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. 18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. 11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh. It is the Spirit of Yahuah that leads, guides, and empowers us to do that which we are commissioned to do, not man. I was sensitive to this brother’s concerns, but I was concerned that this believer’s concerns were indicative of a much greater problem in our community and movement: that we are nothing more than followers of men and ministries–that our individual and collective walks and our talks and our worldviews are so shallow and lacking true substance; that we need a man to tell us how and when to breathe, walk, talk, use the restroom, eat, pray, read our bibles, etc. So the woman called Master out on His behavior. 949-446-0306 Our cousins in Christianity, especially our charismatic friends, love this and related passages.
