Brothers and Sisters, There are many institutions which draw up contracts (covenants) to draw our attention from Yahuah. Yahuah has created a covenant which draws our attention to Him. Gen 2:24 For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother, and cleave to his ashah, and they shall become one flesh.
This covenant is not even Set Apart when left to the heart of men/ women. For when hearts remain as stone walking in the letter of Yahuah’s created covenant (Marriage), but not the Ruach of Marriage, it is left without the purity of purpose and left to the desires of unclean Spirits and their own filthiness.
With this covenant just as with other covenants, this covenant has remained intact from the time of Yahuah speaking to Adam and Kuah, covering them in coats of skin. Whenever there has been a spilling with a covenant That Yahuah spoke, it is honored by Him throughout time, not changing unless done so according to the author of such covenant, Yahusha Himself. Such as circumcision, it is now recognized in His name through immersion in His name. No need to snip, snip. Hatred and Adultery is now recognized in the heart by Yahusha but, seen in Behaviour. It is all about the attitude and Behaviour of the heart of man toward the author of covenants, that is Between Himself and man. Either we remain unclean toward Yahusha and the body, or we repent and become washed of our unclean behaviour and unclean spirits, becoming immersed in the only name above all Ruachs, Yahusha ha’Mashiak. For this is the only way to be in a covenant relationship with Him.
After the work of Yahusha, the purity of His covenants become recognizable to the hearts and eyes that have been washed and show a Love for Him in Behaviour, by becoming disciplined in such Behaviours. The Lusts of the worldly mind are to be set aside; we are to be trained up, as a child should be, according to the mind and reality of His Ruach. Becoming Set Apart in Ruach of mind and Behaviour and not just according to the Letter of His covenants, which means, the individual(s) is not allowing Yahusha to have it. Because as we all know, His covenants in letters to us, can and seem to be done according to one’s own interpretation, without regard to the author of such covenants. To this point, take the covenant that has been mentioned, Marriage. When left to the letter and the unwashed mind’s own understanding, the covenant can and an often times becomes a heavy weight and burden, seeming to have evil cast upon this most wonderful of covenants established by Yahuah. A portion of a Marriage’s purpose is Hidden from us, by the shame done in this covenant.
That portion of Marriage Hidden from us because of callus Behaviour, Is a time of preparation for the Marriage that is to be Set Apart at Yahusha’s return for His Assembly. NOT a c.h.u.r.c.h. Both the individual who remains unmarried and the couples who are in a Marriage, who have entered in a covenant relationship with Messiah and are begotten of His Ruach, again either single or married in this age, there are wedding vows to adhere to. Yahusha’s vows so happen to be the Foundation the Builders rejected, HIS TEN COMMANDMENTS. For in the Assembly, when Yahusha returns there will be individuals in a Marriage relationship with Messiah. For the time it is a wilderness experience in the covenant (behaviour) that still remains and is to be done in Love, according to its author, Yahusha ha’Mashiak. We are to be exhibiting the Two Rules He applied with His assembly while He walked with them. Are these two rules being applied, whether single or married? Let them have it and take nothing personal.
Luke 20:34-36 And Yahusha answering, said to them, “The sons of this age marry and are given in marriage, but those who are counted worthy of attaining that age, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are they given in marriage, for neither is it possible for them to die any more, because they are like messengers and are sons of Alahim, being sons of the resurrection.
