SCRIPTURES ON SELF:


John 12:24-26   "Truly truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life. If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, Alahim will favour him".


Romans 5:8  "But Yahusha shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Yahusha died for us".


Galatians 2:20 "I have been crucified with Yahusha.  It is no longer I who live, but Yahusha who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by belief  in Yahusha Messiah, who loved me and gave Himself for me".


Romans 6:11 "For if we have been united with him in a death like His, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like His...."


Luke 14:27 "Whoever does not bear his own stake and come after me cannot be my disciple".

.

Romans 12:1 "I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the favour of Yahusha, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, Set-Apart  and acceptable to  Alahim, which is your spiritual worship".

1 Peter 2:24 "He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By His wounds you have been healed".


Luke 9:23-25 "And Yahusha said to all, 'If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his stake  daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself?"


Romans 8:18  "For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the esteem that is to be revealed to us".

SUMMARY :

The self covers the entire package of our existence with all the world and its ways, its dealings, its knowledge, its mindset, its behaviour, its self personified to the exhaustion of all the words that you could conjure up to explain the details of SELF. who we are, what we think, be, behave and talk.…. totally exhausting! And that’s how we come to Yahusha, our creator, full of it, up to the brim completely proud with the ego of the self style and the talk of demonic vocabulary to compare and compete with whatever we are confronted with. This is the SELF;, and not a very pretty picture, when we  look into  the mirror of Yahusha’s truth.  And it is not what we were created for or our purpose here on earth. what a sham… what a  self centred show  humankind is presenting to our creator, and then we see His patience, concern and love for us in this diseased state. 


Scripture distinguishes between the old self and the new self (Eph. 4:22-24). In a culture that prioritises the SELF at all costs, Scripture teaches us to die to our old selves and to “put on the new self, created after the likeness of Yahusha in true righteousness and Set Apartness.”


We are taught to put off the “former ways”, that is all the desires and habits of the SELF, cut down all that filthiness and emptiness, to see where it is coming from, invading our vessels from birth all through our lives. We had become so used to the draw of emotions and the self seeking swill of aggrandising our status in our sphere, that to abruptly become aware that Yahushas truth and new life for us seems impossible to attain. WE deny, turn back, retreat, weep, hinder, rescue ourselves again, retrieve, return, say no, I’m not that! turn again, withdraw, reverse, recover, call to mind again, restore, reward ourselves, consider, again and again and again…..take back, turn again (THE DEMONIC VOICES OF CONFUSION).

Satan is the promoter of self, selfies, self awareness, preserve self, respect, shine,  influence, unique self, satisfy self, boast, strong, intelligence,  be active. As the pit has been opened and demon activity in the world is total control. If you want to break free, you have a battle on your hands. Everything and everyone will come against you to stop and destroy you; shame you, reputation, your worth, family, future etc.  This is the most painful, humiliating, embarrassing excruciating, experience you will ever have, it is a real death. ..consider death, finish, end of all your SELF CENTRED-NESS.    But this is also Yahusha setting us apart and showing us the state we are in. As we fight our way out He will be with you with His words of love and encouragement. How do we come to face this truth inside?  Because it’s all going on inside. The thoughts that no-one can see but our behaviour shows. 


Only after acknowledging the revelation that has come to us that Our Creator Yahuah, heard and spoken of by the prophets of old, planned before  the beginning of time to come into our physical world, becoming flesh, transforming and morphing into humanity with divine blood. Divinity and humanity transforming into one new creation being called Yahusha. To believe this you will receive a fullness of who Yahusha really is, and that is the fullness of Alahim bodily. Yahusha is Alahim and He is our deliverer. As the metamorphosis of the caterpillar into the cocoon has to die and completely disintegrate to nothingness, Yahusha did this in His walk on earth, suffering and death on the stake, so we follow him to our death, with the fire of His Spirit within us, we can change as He shows us all our behaviour and we have the power  to put off the sinful corrupt nature we’ve built up inside ourselves. The SELF MUST DIE, in all its ways. Look at the demonic control  over us, everything we do and say has to be filtered through the Love Laws of Yahusha's New Commands, .


1 Peter 5:6-8 Humble yourselves, therefore, under Yahushas mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. 


BE AWARE…. BE WARNED.
