The Master of Reason

Yahouwshua was/is/will always be remembered for his reason. Yahovah the father was all ws with him for his lifetime, he gave him the most precious thing, truth and logic.

The enemy likes to appeal to emotion, the weak part of ourselves, our flesh, whereas Yahouwshua appeals to our higher reason, our intellect, our mind.

Appealing to emotions is one of the most dangerous things that a person can do,it leads to all sorts of dilemmas, negativities, confusion, fear etc. Even good natured people will sy ‘If you don’t do this then…..’, thats appealing to the emotion of fear. Of course there is a difference when logic and reasoning are used.

For example, a Christian may say:

‘You must follow good lifestyle like Christ or else you will go to hell’

They have given the listener two choices, either to follow Christ or to not follow Christ and face the consequences. This is not how Yahoushua worked. He talked, he explained, he gave examples, he showed the good, but also told of the bad, but it was done in such a way that people didnt fail to listen and be inspired. He didnt appeal to emotions, he would come outright and call people hypocrites, this was an attack on their minds, not on their emotions. The attacks made them rethink their lives, it didnt make them fear or think ‘oh no, i’m going to hell’

As followers of Christ we must ourselves equip ourselves with reason and logic. Why do we believe Yahovah created all that we see? Is the answer ‘because he did’? Is the answer, ‘i have a feeling in my heart’? Well these are well and good, but of we plan to show people that there is a God then we must do so in a way which renews their mind. At the end of it all, people will always want to have things settled in their minds, and if there is conflicting messages, they will usually go with the truth. But what exactly is the truth? Of course as Christians we know that Yahouwshua was the living God whose life was/is truth. We should be more like him, if someone tells us here is no God, we must give a mighty solid response to them whereby they have no choice by the end of the conversation, to start questioning themselves. This i true ‘faith’ [click here for the Hebrew meaning of faith]

So lets say an atheist comes to you and tells you ‘there is no God, you are stupid for believing in such a thing, will you use your brain, science is the way forward’… Would you …

  1. say, ‘Well thats your opinion, you have your beliefs and i have mine’
  2. say ‘Whatever, i dont really care what you think i honestly believe that you are the stupid one’
  3. say, ‘I have faith that there is a God’

I would not choose any of those. I feel that we must show people the light, we cant just say ‘oh, well at least i have the light’, its like looking out for number one, we should share the light, we are witnesses of it and should not just feel that Yahovah will show them. Yahouwshua gave us his words and we get it, or at least are trying to. Some really just don’t but i feel its our duty to ensure that they do.

I’m a science freak and there is nothing in science that makes me doubt my knowledge of the existence of Yahovah. Many people say ‘Oh science this, an scince that’, but do they actually know ANY scientific results/evidence of much? Have they gone through thouands of pages of scientific results and came to the conclusion that ‘science is the way forward’, or are they just looking around and thinking ‘look at how much society has progressed due to science, science is all we need’? Well did ‘science’ create atoms, electrons, DNA, bacteria, viruses, animals and humans? Did ‘science’ enable you to have a voice, to feel, think, reason, love, hate? Is science the REASON why the planets orbit the Sun, why there are billions and billions and trillions of stars in the sky and beyond to distances that our minds just could never fathom? So what if science is discovering these things, did the discovery of the moon orbiting the Earth and the Earth oribiting the Sun REALLY put ‘religion’ or belief in God in trouble? How foolish is that, think about it, religious MEN [i.e. fallible man] believed the Earth to be central in the Universe and that the Sun revolved around it. Then came along a man who believed otherwise and he was deemed a blasphemor. When evidence was provided, people thought it would cause the downfall of religion and in fact many scientific advances [the scientific evolution] did mean the end of ‘religion’ in political power, and a move to i guess what we see today. The point i’m trying to make is, science has not ‘replaced’ Yahovah. It hs merely shown his wonders and the power that he has to make things good. Look at all the wars that have occurred in the name of God. People thinking they are doing Gods work by killing those who do not believe what they believe. People being called blasphemers when an appointed man of Yahovah revealed to him the motions of the planets. This was suppression of Yahovahs truth by man who claimed to have faith. This is not a reflection of there being no God, merely how corrupted, confused and wrong men could be. The truth is Yahovah and not science will always be the way forward. Anyone who truly believes otherwise should ask themselves if something can be created from nothing. They say the Universe has existed for millions of years and came from a big explosion. But before that, was there literally nothing? There is no such thing as nothing, to be nothing someone would have to exist to say that ‘there is nothing’, but if there is a person saying ‘there is nothing’ then surely SOMETHING exists right? Last but not least, just to throw some science in the mix, many Quantum Physics researchers have shown that electrons can literally be in two places at the same time. They an exist as a particle [which has location], or as a wave [which doesnt have a specific location as such]. It is only by observation that an electron will have  location [imagine thinking that all toys have no life in them, only when you look they are lifeless, you look away and they are whizzing around having parties and what not – how could we ever know this was going on behind our backs]. They have basically concluded that  reality only exists when there is an observer to observe it. Furthermore, there is research that shows that atoms that are separate from each other and that never even had contact are in some way entangled i.e. they are ‘connected’. Search for quantum mysteries to learn more.

In conclusion, we all should follow Yahouwshuas example and use reason, seeing that there is no greater weapon against all the lies.

Mankind, Instability and Teaching

Our Instability

People believe they are in a ‘stable state’, but unbeknowst to them there is another path that is the most stable state in existence. There are similar concepts in science which is where i got the inspiration for this post.

To use this as an analogy with humans we could say that in the garden of Eden, man were in the most stable state they could have possibly been in. They were in Yahowahs presence. Through disobedience however, they realised that there was ‘another way’ i.e. free will. Of course mans way will never be as good as that of Yahowahs. The discovery of free will meant that man could do potentially anything.

, if we allow him to dwell in our hearts he will carry us from 1 2 3. He has truly saved us, how else would we obtain the energy and strength required to drag us out of our comfort in the world to be near in our divine Abbas presence? We couldn't.”]

I Want to Be Filled

Imagine being surrounded by mountains and hills. You are finding it hard to breath because of the altitude. You get to a low point, and you find it a bit easier to breathe and you are grateful, you settle there. Someone else however may say to themselves, no i want to fill my lungs with oxygen to their capacity. They look around and decide to walk up a big hill taking the risk of collapsing due to little oxygen, but they have hope and faith that Yahowah will deliver them. They get to the top and begin their descent. Before they know it they are at the lowest most stable point, and they take in a huge gasp and their lungs become sated, they feel exhausted but at the same time feel undeniably at peace and free.

We could say that this is what it is like to find Yahowah. People believe Read more of this post

Yahuvah Both Covers and Uncovers, We Can Only ‘Discover’

Only those that have eyes to see and ears to hear will uncover whats covered, although it was never truly covered in the first place, we were just merely blind to it.

Why do we deem Einstein, Newton, Galileo as genuises? Its not necessarily that they were the smartest men on Earth, rather its because they discovered things that were in front of us all that we were blind to. Their eyes were open and ours were closed..

Yehovah has never covered the truths of the universe. He didnt throw a blanket over the laws of thermodynamics only to whip it off for certain people to find. They were always there. Of course Yehovah has the power to blind us, to cause us not to see whats in front of us. It could have been discovered in Yeshuas time, but it was not its time back then.

In The Beginning Read more of this post

Equilibrium and Creation

Yahuvah is not flesh, not matter, but is more likened to energy, wind, spirit, or a breath [in the sense of him imparting his breath into Adam creating a living being with a soul].

So if we think of Yahuvah as energy, then we can find it easier to think of him as a balanced ‘system’, with function [tov = good] and dysfunctional [ra = calamity] at extreme ends.

What is Equilibrium?

In science, a reaction will usually start and then finish; or it will not start at all. But under Read more of this post

Equilibrium and Wisdom

Well Yahuvahs nature is definitely different from ours. Yahuvah is unchanging. He is an has always been a judge, loving, one who gets angry, a shepherd and so on. He is holy [set apart for a specific purpose], and his purpose is love, good and kindness. Mankind knows what is expected from the creator of ALL things . Is it too much for us to follow some rules? He will give  us a lot more than anyone ever could if we follow the rules [of course you should want to follow his will rather than do it out of obligation].

We can rely on the fact that Yahuvah is love and will forever and always remain love as long as you show the respect required, you will be on the right side of him. Perhaps we can view Yahuvah like we view equilibrium, remember Yahuvah isnt a person, but is ‘spirit’,  breath, wind. He has set the conditions for the universe and for us to live life. The universe follows Yahuvahs orders [universal laws] and look at how it functions, astronomy and nature are wonderful. Now all we as humans need to do is follow the guide and directions given to us.

The  Ancient Hebrew concept of balance that they had is interesting. They didnt see good and evil, they knew these are united as a balance. They viewed wisdom as the ability to separate e.g. good from bad, right from wrong, light from dark, clean from unclean etc. They only knew how to do this because these things were distinguished between by Yahuvah, and so the wise person was the one who could successfully separate them and not just that, but also remain on the ‘right’ side.

The crafty serpent was very wise and managed in his wisdom to separate evil from good and stayed on the wrong side. The Ancient Hebrews were aware of the adversary aka Satan and would participate in sacrificial offerings to apologise to Yahuvah for being foolish [opposite of wisdom, inability to separate thus may be likely to fall on either side in ignorance]

The good thing is if you change your behaviour to the preset conditions [as in the torah], his ‘equilibrium’ will shift to functional i.e, ‘good’, with the help of mercy and grace restoring the balance.

Law of Physics: For every action made by mankind there is an equal and opposite reaction by the universe

Note, what i am basically saying is Yahuvah is capable of both good and ‘bad’, but underlying his nature is love and a desire for good.

It is us who sin, who do wrong, yet we blame ‘God’. Why is there evil in the world? people say. We have the power ourselves to stop it. The enemy comes to steal all happiness that people have but to fight it we must have faith. Rather than blaming Yahuvah, we  need to start blaming our sinful nature and the enemy for evil.

Think about this:

No sinful nature plus Yahuvah is heaven, paradise. How it was in the garden of Eden

A sinful nature plus Yahuvah, is the situation we are in. Its not paradise, but it could be if mankind could just accept and follow Yahuvahs guidelines for life rather than thinking they can live without him.

No sinful nature and no Yahuvah means no guide and we don’t know right from wrong. There is no such thing as ‘without yahuvah’ as he is creator of all. Lets say we mean no Yahuvah interceding for us, people could do anything, those who feel the pain of e.g. losing a loved one to murder may not do that, but hat doesnt stop them committing adultery or consistently lying, sleeping with the same sex etc. There is no such thing as no sinful nature without Yahuvah because without his distinction of things, people will live anyhow . Having no Yahuvah to fight for the ‘relatively good’ means that hypothetically the evil would triumph seeing that if the evil are killing the ‘good’, and the ‘good’ are too righteous to fight back due to their loving natures, then surely they’ll fail to survive.  This is not possible though as there is and always has been a God fighting for the good. We are not good because its in us, we are because Yahuvah has allowed us to be. All morals etc are from him and is what has allowed good people to exist up to today. Through his judgement he makes us feel guilt, shame and we  realise the error of our ways. It is because he loves us and knows without him we can do nothing, we are nothing, and he is urging us to wake up, even if he has to make us feel downcast.

Yahuwshua told us bout the prodigal son i.e. those who are  without Yahuvah.

Luke 15

17. many hired servants of my father’s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!

Some people think we are stupid to follow Yahuvah. They think we are wasting our lives following something we have no proof for little realising that the reason they arperising morally, emotionally/mentally is because they think they an go through live alone.  People want instant gratification. They want to do they’re own thing and be what they call ‘free’. The dont realise that what they call freedom is actually bondage for we are nothing without him. True freedom comes from  peace, integrity, love, humility and so on, all found in our faith but those with no faith do not see this except when they consider  how empty they’re life is, like something is missing but they dont know what, or they simply refuse to listen to the truth.

When Yahuwshua came, he made it very simple that we must love our neighbours as we do ourselves. Love can conquer all, though it sounds cliche its true. There would e no killing, hurt, heartache etc. We wouldnt make anyone feel inadequate and many other positives. We take it for granted how simple this message is but think about it, who before him thought of such a message? Why have mankind found it so hard to live in peace yet Yahuwshua can come along and in just 3 years from a bible history of over 1000 years make it so easy for people to follow up to this date and have such an impact? This could only be from Yahuwah.

Love is not the only thing however, we must accept Yahuwshua into our hearts. We must pray for the Lord to open peoples eyes to himself.

Though we hear a lot about bad things people do on the news, in newspapers etc, my faith tells me that there are millions more people finding Yahuwshua to that one evil story that they like to publicise. I tend to think that there is so much evil in the world, but really i’m hoping and praying its just the enemy trying to brainwash us into believing there is no God of salvation. I guess if there was that much evil, there would be rioting in and between countries, prison break outs, intolerably high murder rates, suicides etc, but there aren’t. Yahuvah really is in control.
