SUMMARY: It is obvious by the Scriptures above, that within the New Covenant, Yahusha gave us all a PATTERN to follow. The Apostles taught and followed this pattern of behaviour. IF OUR BODY IS NOW THE TEMPLE, IT’S HOW WE BEHAVE TEMPLE PROCEDURES. The only problem is, it must be done in the supernatural. His reign is not of this earth, so the one thing we need (to declare that the supernatural is in our Assemblies and lives) … is BELIEF!! No one can partake of the fruits of behaviour unless through the supernatural, because they are SUPERNATURAL FRUITS.
When we say supernatural, it means we have access to the presence of Yahusha.
James 1:5-8 “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask Yahuah, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from Yahusha. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do". (just like the carpetbagger) …
The stipulation of the pattern is to ENTER HIS PRESENCE THROUGH BELIEF, not doubting, otherwise there is no access!
Everything Yahusha did was miraculously supernatural. We must follow this pattern the Apostles laid down, and achieved in their behaviour.
Carpetbaggers are not teaching this, but want to bring us under the shadow teachings of the Ten Commandments. He said THE TEN ARE COVERED BY THE TWO. Trying to do this behaviour without the supernatural power of His spirit, is impossible anyway. Loving Him and your neighbour AS YOURSELF needs the supernatural presence of His Spirit coming through you to achieve it.
This is the NARROW-GATE and the rough and rocky road of the race for the CROWN OF LIFE we need to walk to achieve eternal life. Throwing the self and this world off will bring us into His miraculous and supernatural presence!
This is the teaching religious carpetbaggers hate, because it shows up their behaviour as fake (if they are not urging their Assemblies into the supernatural). So instead, they lie and deceive, and this is why only few find the narrow gate.
The early Assemblies did not follow pattern procedure, forcing Yahusha away as He can’t dwell in the uncleanness of the calamity of division. Yahusha has never returned to be with His people until recently.
We have been living in the dark ages without His presence. So the fullness of man’s sin has come before His throne. Yahusha is now visiting those genuine believers (His wise virgin Bride) and is revealing the PATTERN OF THE PATH OF LIFE, dispelling the darkness living in people.
So come off the path to destruction and enter the narrow gate and get on the path to life and enter the supernatural presence of Yahusha — through your BELIEF !!
