SCRIPTURAL UNDERSTANDING: 1John 4:11-18 Beloved ones, if Yahuah so loved us, we ought to love one another. No one has seen Yahuah at any time. If we love one another, Yahuah does stay in us, and His love has been PERFECTED IN US. By this we know we stay in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Ruach. And we have seen and bear witness that the Father sent the Son, Deliverer of the world. Whoever confesses that Yahusha is the Son of Yahuah, Yahuah stays in him, and he in Yahuah And we have known and believed the love that Yahuah has for us. Yahuah is love and he who stays in love stays in Yahuah. By this LOVE HAS BEEN PERFECTED WITH US, in order that we might have boldness in the day of judgement, because as He is so are we in the world. THERE IS NO FEAR IN LOVE, BUT PERFECT LOVE CASTS OUT FEAR, because fear holds punishment, and he who fears has not been made PERFECT IN LOVE.
We can see by exploring the meanings of these words, Yahusha can speak to us through the abstract. Once we have fulfilled the requirements of repentance, immersion, receiving His spirit, reading Turah, practising The 3 Rules, as we go through the Hebrews 12 flogging and goadings.
It is not a really hard thing to become mature or perfect, His spirit makes us not want to sin, but to please Him. Loving your brother will bring us to perfect maturity. Once we let Yahusha have us, His love is everlasting. I would much rather be in this state than wandering in the earth in uncertainty.
HOW DO WE KNOW WHO OUR BROTHER IS ?
VERSE 1 of JOHN 4 (actually we should read the whole chapter it gives marvellous insight), says: 1. Beloved ones, do not believe every Ruach, but prove the Ruach's, whether they are of Yahuah, because many false prophets have gone out (from among us) into the world. Then the scripture goes on to explain how to recognise carpetbaggers etc. (essential knowledge). There are those who would want to fool us and use us for their own gain, stopping us, from going on to the path of maturity/perfection as we walk past those carpetbaggers in the doorway.
As we all know our brother Mark had a recent experience with a carpetbagger who was trying to belittle him. This same deviate is relentless, he is now contacting Victoria trying to sell his wares, she politely asked him not to contact her anymore.
Victoria's behaviour is real love. How do we know who our brother is ? By their behaviour (FRUITS), loving this person who says He is a brother, we do with politeness. But our love for real brothers and sisters is impossible to give to such a creature, the same as the wise virgins did to the unwise, they sent them off to buy their own oil. It is imperative for us to test the Ruach's and not throw our pearls to swine. The Turah above says to stay in Yahuah's love and He will stay in us and our love will be perfected. B and S be aware of all Ruach's love them politely, but above all your perfected maturity will come from loving your brothers and sisters. This is the REVOLUTION BEHAVIOUR.
AND WE HAVE THIS COMMAND FROM HIM, THAT THE ONE LOVING YAHUAH SHOULD LOVE HIS BROTHER TOO.
