TURAH UNDERSTANDING : John 12:25. He who loves his life shall lose it, and he who hates his life in this world shall preserve it for everlasting life.
Matt 16:26. 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 ?
1 Peter 3:10. For he who wishes to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking deceit.
James 4:14. When you do not know of tomorrow. For what is your life ? For it is a mist that appears for a little, and then disappears.
I John 1:1. What was from the beginning, what we have heard, and what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the word of life.
1 Tim 4:8. For bodily exercise is profitable for a little, but reverence is profitable for all, having promise for the present life, and of that which is to come.
Heb 13:5. Let your way of life be without the love of money, and be satisfied with what you have. For He Himself has said, "I shall never leave you or forsake you."
1 John 5:12. He who possesses the Son possesses life, He who does not possess the Son of Yahuah does not possess life.
HE WHO POSSESSES THE SON POSSESSES "LIFE" HE WHO DOES NOT POSSESS THE SON OF YAHUAH DOES NOT POSSES "LIFE."
Obviously the ultimate experience of life is to be filled with the Ruach of Yahusha and posses Him within your being. We need to present the behaviour which manifests the fact that Yahusha's spirit is habituating within our vessel.
Just as Yahuah manifested Himself within the Tabernacle in the wilderness and the Temple of Yerushalayim, before He left it, because of worship mixture (impure and unclean). Yahusha manifested in the flesh and preached that our bodies were now to become the temple place of His habitation, but with instructions of how to experience His life within our flesh.
The life that is not dead as all men are who refuse liberation and deliverance are dead in their trespasses and sin. Yahusha calls them "THE WALKING DEAD.'' Our lives, How we choose to live, if in rebellion to Yahusha's instruction will render us in this state of non progression to life, but to destruction, if we refuse to acknowledge Yahusha's sacrifice for our love, "GREATER LOVE HAS NO MAN THAN TO LAY DOWN HIS "LIFE" FOR HIS. BROTHER."
Above we have the Hebrew explanation that "LIFE" is a road trodden, a course of life or a mode of action, because of conversation and custom through a pathway. It also shows us that "LIFE" guides swiftly as a fleeting portion of time and our short time of "LIFE" on this world is transient. There are also some guiding scriptures from the "BOOK OF LIFE."
Seriously B & S'S applying The 3 Rules to your situations will propel you to the place of His presence much quicker than your own efforts. What is more important to us than having real life within our vessels, fulfilling the purpose of our individually created existence, or to sacrifice that opportunity for the lust and desire of the flesh where nothing is permanent.
