Let it be known
Beloved, let it be known that after their Passover experience, and Departure from the land of Egypt, Yahweh led the Children of Israel, under Moses their leader, through the Red Sea on dry ground as it were. Consequently, instead of leading these descendants of Father Abraham, according to the flesh, immediately into Canaan the Promised Land, Yahweh led them into the wilderness where those, who survived due to their obedience to Him, were defused from the ungodly influence and lifestyle of the Egyptian world within a period of forty years. Further, among other laws, for example, the civil, and the ceremonial, He gave to Moses and the children of Israel the Decalogue or the Ten Commandments on two tablets of stones, in order to build character in them such that that spirit in their entire community would reflect the love of Yahweh, and the love of their neighbor. Interestingly, such characteristic spirit among the community of the children of Israel was significant and necessary for their survival; and their fulfillment of Yahweh’s will and plan for them in the Promised Land, i.e. to drive out seven nations which were “greater and mightier” than they [Deuteronomy 7:1]: and to occupy and establish themselves there only in Yahweh’s righteousness.
While in the wilderness, however, and long before the children of Israel entered into the Promise Land, Yahweh demanded separateness of them from the many idol worshipping nations [Deuteronomy 7:5] whom they would cast out, even as He delivered them before their very eyes. He instructed the Children of Israel at that time to: smite them, utterly destroy them, make no agreement with them, show no mercy unto them, or make any marriages with them. According to the scriptures, the reasons for not making any marriages with them and acting sternly with them were abundantly clear. The scriptures say:
- “For they will turn away thy son from following me that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the Lord be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly”[Deuteronomy 7:4]
- “For thou art a holy people unto the Lord thy God [Deuteronomy 7:6]
- The Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto Himself, above all the people that are upon the face of the earth, [Deuteronomy 7:6] and,
- The Lord did not set His love upon you, nor choose you, because you were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: but because He would keep the oath which He had sworn unto your fathers, hath the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand off Pharaoh king of Egypt.[ Deuteronomy 7:7]
The New Generation under Joshua
It was unfortunate though, that many of the older men and women died in the wilderness because “they obeyed not the voice of the Lord.” [Joshua 5:6] However, a new generation led by Joshua and Caleb entered the promise land eventually, but not before Joshua circumcised the males among them “at the hill of the foreskins.” It is written:
“And this is the cause why Joshua did circumcise: all the people that came out of Egypt, that were males, even all the men of war, died in the wilderness by the way, after they came out of Egypt. Now all the people that came out were circumcised: but all the people that were born in the wilderness by the way as they came forth out of Egypt, them they had not circumcised. For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people that were men of war, which came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they obeyed not the voice of the Lord: unto whom the Lord sware that He would not show them the land, which the Lord sware unto their fathers that He would give us, a land that floweth with milk and honey. And their children whom He raised up in their stead, them Joshua circumcised….” [Joshua 5: 4-7]
Note worthily, after the new generation who were circumcised was healed, the Lord said unto Joshua, “This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you,” and the place was called Gilgal. In addition, “they kept the Passover on the fourteenth day of the month at even in the plains of Jerico. And they did eat unleaven cakes, and parched corn the same day. And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten the cold corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna anymore; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year. [Joshua 5:9-12]
The effects of Christ becoming the Paschal Lamb and the new Covenant
Beloved, the Old Testament law, Covenant and the Passover became of no effect in A.D. 33, when instead of a traditional lamb among the flock of lower animals: Christ the Lamb of God was crucified at Mt. Calvary on the fourteenth of Nisan to take away the sins of all the nations of the world. The law was added because of transgressions, until the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator. [Galatians 3:19] And since no law given could give life, righteousness by the law is impossible. It is written:
“The scripture hath concluded all under sin that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe. But before faith came, we (meaning the children of Israel) were kept under the law, shut up unto faith which should afterwards be revealed.” [Galatians 3:21-23]
It is crystal clear to see that the law was the children of Israel school master to bring them unto Christ, that they might be justified by faith. “But after that faith is come those who exercise faith in Christ are no longer under a school master, but are all children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.” [Galatians 3:24-27]
Christ the seed of Abraham being come on the public scene since in A.D.30 was crucified in A.D.33 in fulfillment of the scriptures. And the Time of Reformation was ushered in when Christ became an High Priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not this building; neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood He entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.” [Hebrews 9:10] That Divinely Sanctioned Reformation brought no little Rapid Radical Changes to the Jewish Religious System of the day, notably, (1) We, believing Priests/esshave boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which He hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, His flesh.” [Hebrews 10:19-20] and, (2) A New Era, Grace; and new Covenant came into effect, just to mention a few. Concerning the Covenant it says: This is the covenant I will make with them after those days saith the Lord:
“I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them: and their sins and iniquity will I remember no more.” [Hebrews 10:16-17]
Thus instead of law of works for righteousness: Grace; and faith in Christ for righteousness became the order of the day to this date, and until Christ returns…. As a result, as an Inward Jew Nation in Christ, among others, our walk in the Spirit [Galatians 5:16], even as we pass our sojourn here on planet earth, is along the path that Yahweh has chosen for us, according to the New Testament in Christ’s shed blood, and this is by faith and in the Spirit.[Galatians 5:1]
The importance of the practice of separateness from ungodly living
Beloved, in the New Testament Model, the children of Father Abraham according to the flesh are not the children of Yahweh the Most High God: instead the Children of Promise are! It is written:
“But that after faith is come, we are no longer under a school master. For we are all children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptised into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither male or female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are we Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” [Galatians 3:25-29]
As an integral part of the children of promise we, the inward Jew Nation in Christ (Guyana, South America) are journeying towards a Place on the level of the Spirit. According to the scriptures, Christ said to His disciples, and is still saying to us who believe today, “…I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am there ye may be also.” [John 14:2-3]
Beloved, to be with Christ in that place He referred to, one has to practice separateness from the ungodly world, in the sense that he is not part of it, even though he is in it (the world.) Jesus in His intercessory prayer said:
“…And now I come to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them thy Word; and the world hath hated thee, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shuoldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep the from evil. They are not of the world, of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy Word is truth.” John 17:13-17]
So then non- conformity to the world is one of the prerequisite to be with Christ Jesus in that place He has gone to prepare for believers and the body of Christ. It all boils down to one word i.e. “love.” on Yahweh’s part.
Mankind has the power to choose either to love the ungodly world, or to love Yahweh the Most High God. If one loves Yahweh more: then he would obey His Word which says:
“Love not the world… the world passes away and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” [1 John 2:15-17]
As in the Old Testament scriptures [[Deuteronomy 7:5:, the New Testament Scriptures, namely, 1 John 2:16, John the Apostle commanded the body of Christ in whom the Word of God abideth to demonstrate separateness from “world.” He gave justifiable reasons for doing so [1 John 2:15], and in a scriptural sense defined “world” within the context of scriptures as “lust.” In verse sixteen, for example, John gave an analytical breakdown of the term “world,” and it says, “For all that is in the world, the lust of the fxamlesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” John concluded thus:
“And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.” [1 John 15:17]
Today, our focus should be on our young generation
Beloved, we the older believers and Children of Promise have all had, and experienced our wilderness wandering at one time or the other in our life, and some of us are still going through it, so none can boast of having arrived…. Today, let us turn some of our attention to our young people and teach them the ways of Yahweh through Christ our Lord and Savior. Concerning our young generation in these last days, who are caught up in the midst of global corruption and apostasy in the churches: in spite of corruption in all its forms everywhere: the Gospel of Jesus Christ is still the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes. [Romans 1: 16] As a result, redemption through the precious blood of Christ is still the solution to man’s mental and spiritual enslavement. [1 Peter 1:18-19] And separateness from the world as defined within the contest of scriptures in 1 John 2:15-17, will take young people and adults, who really desire to serve Yahweh, and Christ our example, to newer and higher levels of consciousness in Him, provided that we take the following steps as we are urged to do in Romans 12:1-2 below:
- By your own will present your body as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God your heavenly Father. Remember it is about who controls your body here. If you allow God to control your body by an act of surrender to His will and purpose for your life, it should be your reasonable service― when you think about His love, mercy and grace towards you
- You know that you are in the Promised Land on the level of the spirit when as Christ, you become a living sacrifice. Remember whatever you do in this live you ensure that is done within the will of God … and
- You know that through your non-conformity stance towards the ungodly world by your words and deeds that, Yahweh has separated you from it (the ungodly world) by the power of His Spirit, such that you, yet in it, now have a mind that is renewed, one which demonstrates full proof that you are not only now set apart unto God, but also conformed to His perfect will. [Romans 12:1-2]
My inspirational thoughts on crucifixion of self and Christ consciousness
Let us all rejoice in Christ, for at His coming, He will take all who endure to the end to that Prepared Place in His Father’s Manson. [Romans 14:1-2] But until then, by experience, I am saying to us that, in mortifying the deeds of one’s fleshly desires within, one would through the precious blood of Christ, experience His Passover over and departure from mental and spiritual enslavement; and sin and death: and instead, he/ she would be showered with a new hope, new joys, new beginnings, in short, a new life in abundance in Christ would spring up within himself/herself in which He/she would enter and possess their Promised Land; one that truly flows with milk and honey on the level of the spirit.
Beloved, on this level of consciousness in Christ, you get a “peep” about what crucifixion of self is really meant in the lines of the Apostle to the Galatians 2:20 which says:
“I am crucified in Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me.”
In the Old Testament, as the younger generation, under the leadership of Joshua and Caleb, were circumcised at the hill of their foreskin before they entered and occupied Canaan the Land of Promise: even so today our young people and adults, who believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ from the depths of the heart, must experience a genuine circumcision, but that of the heart, by the power of the Holy Spirit, at a time such as this, ― in order to enter and occupy that spiritual Place of Promised Rest within, where we can experience His peace and quiet rest in our lifetime here and now, and beyond i.e. in His Father’s House.
Let us all rejoice in Christ, for at His coming, He will take all who endure to the end to that Prepared Place in His Fathers Manson. [Romans 14:1-2] But until then, by experience, I am saying to us that, in mortifying the deeds of one’s fleshly desires within, one would through the precious blood of Christ, experience His Passover over and departure from mental and spiritual enslavement; and sin and death: and instead, he she would be showered with a new hope, new joys, new beginnings, in short, a new life in abundance in Christ would spring up within himself/herself in which He/she would enter and possess their Promised Land, ―one that truly flows with milk and honey on the level of the spirit.
May Yahweh richly bless you and your household, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Serving in the newness of spirit,
