Die To Your Rights.


Brothers & Sisters . . . !!

DOES DYING TO YOURSELF MEAN YOU HAVE TO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHTS? IN YOUR LIFE TIME YOU WILL ENCOUNTER MANY PEOPLE AND GROUPS WHO DECLARE THEIR RIGHTS TO YOU.


WOULD IT BE AN ADVANTAGE TO HAVE NO RIGHTS AND HOW SO ?

CHECK THIS VERSE -

Matt 16: 21-27: From that time Yahusha began to show to His talmidim that it was necessary for Him to go to Yerushalayim, and to suffer much from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and to be raised again the 3rd yom. 22 And Kefa took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, “Be kind to Yourself, Master, this shall not be to You!” 23 But He turned and said to Kefa, “Get behind Me, Shatan! You are a hindrance to Me, for your thoughts are not those of Alahim, but those of men.” 24 Then Yahusha said to His talmidim, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his pole, and follow Me. 25For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it, and whoever loses his life for My sake shall find it. 26 For what is a man profited if he gains all the world, and loses his own life? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his life? 27 For the Son of Adam is going to come in the esteem of His Father with His messengers, and then He shall reward each according to his works. 28 Truly, I say to you, there are some standing here who shall not taste death at all until they see the Son of Adam coming in His reign:”


As we have grown up we have learnt many skills, knowledges etc..This learning has formed our personality, character and behaviours on issues (or rights). Turah tells us that what we have taken into the flesh without the guidance of the Ruach, has the power of entrapment. We have become behavioural slaves to these rights and therefore do not have the power in our being to control our own flesh, therefore we are responding to our worldly rights when a Turah issue comes up. We find ourselves instead the enemy of Turah, Yahuah's precious words of life.


Every human being on the face of this earth is in this situation entrapped in the flesh being a slave to our emotional behaviour. Repentance, immersion and being filled with the Set-Apart Spirit in the Name of Yahusha Messiah vis the only deliverance from the "self" formed character which dominates your being and owning your person, instead of Yahusha.


In verse 23, Yahusha says to Matthew, "your thoughts are not those of Alahim,but those of men". Yahusha gives us the thoughts we need to die to ourselves and take on a new life. Dying to ourselves makes us clean, free and full of Turah wisdom - what could be more divine. The self-life with it's rights will take us to a miserable death. Do you think the enemy wants you with a clean, free new life or to end up with him non-existent?
