ADONAI ELOHEINU (ADONAI, our God) never called us to ‘slave for
Not even one time did HE call us to
Him – I mean ‘slave
’ that way – and then attach His Holy Name to it.
What HE has
called us to is ONENESS
with His Ruach, to BE at-rest/at-one/at-peace with Himself.
“My yoke is chrēstós (manageable, pleasant, useful, benevolent) and My load is light. Only ONE THING is necessary and Miriam has chosen that good thing and it will not be taken from her.” (Matthew 11:30/Luke 10:42)
that is COMMON TO THIS PRESENT WORLD have you yoked yourself to that has hindered you from ‘serving Him in satisfaction and pleasure’ with the ‘beautiful, prosperous mind’ (Deuteronomy 28:47)?
REMEMBER that the Adversary wills for you to ‘do right things’, but without the POWER and JOY of the Ruach HaKodesh.
In other words, in your profession as a Follower of the Mashiach, the enemy prefers for you to just remain ‘common’.
The Adversary’s will (devious delight!) is for us to SETTLE FOR THE COMMON in our ‘christian’ life…it’s not actually LIFE at all. That is, he desires to appeal to our ‘natural man’ so that we WASTE OUR LIVES by choosing to live a joyless existence as we toil. He whispers…‘Go ahead and DO RIGHT THINGS, but for hell’s sake, just don’t be JOYFUL while doing them!’
Ask the Ruach HaKodesh these questions! HE will give you the spirit of chokmah (wisdom) and revelation. Mereas, circumcise your mind, your ears, and your lips…and when you’ve received His Word of Admonition, SHEMA.
“Remember, I brought you out of Egypt, out of the house of slavery…”
Only the Enemy of Image-bearers would devise such a scheme whereby you break your back, kill yourself, be robbed of ADONAI’s Simcha…all while ‘serving’ Him.
Thank You ABBA YHWH that you NEVER called us as Your called-out-ones to live a worn out, wearied existence!
That is, however, the Adversary’s will for us.
Distractions in the life of Ezer Kenegdo are really nothing more than DETRACTORS to fullness in the Ruach HaKodesh, satisfaction in oneness with our Savior, a hindrance to the warming radiance of the Divine Light of God’s Ruach shining within.
Don’t be fooled.
What you do ‘for Jesus’, HE may have never authorized you to do!
Consider the many yokes of slavery that hinder the Light within, and keep you from the JOY of the Ruach Eloyim Chayim (Spirit of the Living God).
Understand where you are ‘unequally yoked’ with the things of this present world.
“Come to me, all of you who are struggling and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls*.” ~ Matthew 11
Yeshua IS our SHABBAT. Remove the yoke of slavery. Enter into the Holy Spirit’s simcha (joy=satisfaction and pleasure).
