Are You Drawing Near?
Brothers and Sisters the thrust of Behaviour Revolution is HEARING YAHUSHA’S VOICE YOURSELF in your day. From the big issues and study right down to the “it’s time you clean up that messy corner” (you know, very practical, personal, clean, tidy and ordered). If you read Exodus 20 you find the Ten Commandments given to Mushah. They are our wedding vows written on our hearts and we cherish and guard them. However right after this we read how Yisharal was given the opportunity to come close to Yahuah on the mountain but instead CHOSE to be afraid by the thunder and lightening . . .
Ex 20:18 "And all the people saw the thunders, the lightning flashes, the sound of the ram’s horn, and the mountain smoking. And the people saw it, and they trembled and stood at a distance, 19and said to Mushah, “You speak with us and we hear, but let not Alahim speak with us, lest we die.” 20And Mushah said to the people, “Do not fear, for Alahim has come to PROVE YOU, and in order that His fear be before you, so that you do not sin.” 21So the people stood at a distance, but Mushah drew near the thick darkness where Alahim was.”
So Yahusha is going PROVE US ?
To PROVE something is to establish the truth, genuineness and authenticity of something by means of testing to determine the quality of character displayed through actions and behaviour.
Isn't this what we're all going through?
Imagine being given the opportunity to draw close to Yahuah as Mushah did and rejecting it. Yisharal chose to be instructed and get everything `second-hand’ from Moshe instead of experiencing the presence and wonderment of our Creator Yahuah. Mushah’s experience with Yahuah changed him so much, even physically (he was glowing) that the people couldn’t look directly at him. He was radioactive (in a good way!) But what trials and training did He undergo for 40 years prior to this?
We have a choice Brothers & Sisters. Do we want to come close to Yahusha and have our own special relationship with Him (come boldly into the throne room through His blood - we have direct access) - or do we want to stand at a distant nodding our heads in agreement to the teachers that be, but not hearing and experiencing Him for ourselves, feeling His love, care and instructions surge through us daily? This is the choice. Of course after immersion that is Yahusha’s plan for all of us, to enter us and train us and gradually inhabit us with His essence, but many will not bow the knee to Him, will not endure the testing, the floggings and chastisement - will not bring on the fruits of righteousness (LET CORRECT BEHAVIOUR COME FORTH) . . . This is the test, this is the battle against evil that also wants us the draw near so we can be overcome, unclean and destroyed.
Do you want the essence of the living Alahim surging from your vessel as Mushah did? Like Mushah, many will want to shun you, cover your face, and stuff you in a broom-closet because the light is just too bright for them.
Scripture says that men hate the light because their works (behaviour) will get exposed. It’s far easier to hate the light and remain asleep in the darkness. What do you want Brothers & Sisters? To be spoon-fed second-hand info from other teachers or to put off everything that holds you back and run the race, run to Yahusha and enter the training He has for you??? Which do you prefer, darkness or light? Asleep or awake? Afraid and trembling, worshipping a ridiculous golden bull at the bottom of the mountain or be partying it up in the mountaintop penthouse with Yahusha, watching and listening and seeing Him do all these amazing and incredible acts of wonderment right in front of you?
This is the choice. He is no respecter of persons - run to Him and He will run to you as the Father did to the prodigal.
This is the thrust of the Behaviour Revolution - come on in - to all those who are heavy laidened and burdened, come and Yahusha will give you rest - we love you .
