Yahweh's Amazing Love for Us - Study
 
We are ready to begin our study portion for today's broadcast and we want to talk about: The Love of Yahweh. I'm not talking about the love we have toward Yahweh but the love that Yahweh has toward us. And so today's study title is Yahweh's Amazing love for us. We have to understand this is our foundation really it's not fear of hell driving us, it is his amazing love. And we wanna talk about what the Scriptures have to say regarding Yahweh's love for us. Much of Yahweh's love for us is demonstrated more so in what he has done for us and what he's doing for us than him looking at you and saying you know I love you, I think that's more of a modern Roman thing but it's true he does love us, he says he loves us. And we can see his love for us just in creation alone, just in creation. He created a beautiful environment for us to live in. Although man with his cities find a way of blocking Yahweh's awesome creation out, you know the concrete jungle they call it. Instead of beautiful outdoor setting it's more of an asphalt and concrete and buildings and
artificial lighting. A lot of these things especially
outdoor lighting it has a way of blocking out a good view of one of the most amazing things about Yahweh's creation and that is the night sky. Out here, where I live we are out in the middle of the wilderness, one traffic light in the entire county. Yes, we have the opportunity to behold the glory of Yahweh whose creation and just realize how awesome he is and how maybe one time in man's history he thought these were little dots just kinda stuck to some roof or something but millions and millions of light years away, it's pretty amazing, our existence here. And scientists as they study these things I don't know how they just don't drop on their knees and say how great thou art, how great you are, how amazing you are because the heavens declare the glory of Elohim and the firmament shows his handy work. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. And they do they speak the glory of Elohim, what do
we do in response?
Do we say Glory to Yahweh our Mighty One?
I often do as we get home late sometimes after dark
and look up at the night sky as I often do and just behold the Majesty of Yahweh and stand in awe of what he has done. He could have just created a little box and live in this little box. But he created this massive Universe and it's beautiful. And he did this for us and the Psalmist writes in Psalms 8 verse 3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon, the stars, which you have ordained. What is man, that you are mindful of him? For you have made him a little lower than the angels, have crowned him with glory and honor. We gaze in the heavens and realize just how small we are, just realize how small we are. What is man that you are mindful of him? Who are we? Yahweh surely must be busy with something more important, has other things to do but Scripture says You have made him to have dominion over the
works of your hands; you have put all things under
his feet. All sheep and oxen, even the beasts of the field. The birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, that pass through the paths of the seas. O Yahweh our Master, how excellent is your name in all the earth! Yahweh chose man to have dominion over his works, over his doings. For some reason, he sees us as being important to him even having made us in his image.
So, when he was looking for a pattern after which he
would create man on the earth, he chose himself. That's powerful, if you really just stop and think about it, that's powerful and he cares about us.
It says Yahweh has appeared of old to me,
saying, Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love. An everlasting love, can anything else match it? An everlasting love, you see when you receive love from your fellow man, from a spouse, from a child, from whoever, the Father and that love really isn't everlasting, non-stop because when they perish from the earth they are no more at least for a time anyway. But Yahweh loves us with an everlasting love and enduring love, a love that never goes away.
Therefore with loving kindness, I have drawn you.
You know, no one can come to Messiah unless Yahweh draws them. He chose to give you and me loving kindness. Yahushua says No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. That means to bring you to himself. And I will raise him up at the last day. Why? Because Yahweh loves you with an everlasting love.
It is the Father who brought you to the Son; it
is the Father who is the author of all life, all love, all power, all spirit. And whether you know it or not, he is serving you every single day, day by day, night by night. You have the breath of life, breathing air he created, eating food he created, drinking water that he created with a body that he created. There isn't anything that you are or anything you do without his act of service for you and his act of love for you, I think sometimes we forget that
especially we Americans, so independent always
wanting our rights. But we don't even own ourselves, he owns us. But he's not like a king on a throne that sits back
and firing off orders, he is a continual servant.

What happens to the human body when they die?
All the cells are there, all the basic building blocks of life are still there, without Yahweh's life giving spirit, without Yahweh's life giving power, all those minerals and water and cells and DNA and none of that does anything.
Not slot machinery if you got all the right things
in place everything just kinda works. With life, everything is there but it ceases from
working.
Now maybe I'm someone who sounds so basic but I really think we forget that he is continually day by day, night by night saving us. When Yahushua returns he said Let your waists be girded, in your lamps burning. Luke 12:35 And you yourselves be like man who wait for their Master when he will return from the wedding, that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately. Blessed are those servants, whom the master when he comes will find watching: assuredly I say to you, that he will gird himself, and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them.
That's what Yahushua is going to do when he comes,
he's gonna serve us because love is serving and serving is love.
Serving is love with an action to it.

You see Yahweh created the world that you live in so
irreducibly complex, so unsearchable massive, so impressively designed it begs the question.
Someone did this for me, who do I have toa thank?
If I give a $100 bill and smiled at you, wouldn't you naturally think I'm a kind person, I must like you a lot? We see that when we do things for each other, well Yahweh created everything there is to see and hear how's that for evidence of his love just by that alone?
He created you, by nature, it's proof of his love for us.
Our very existence on this planet should be all the proof we need. It's man who fails to love; some of you may not
know the love of Elohim, the love of Yahweh our
Father in heaven. you may not know that love, perhaps it's been sort of drowned out by the hatred that man chooses to
hate.
And you question how could Yahweh love me when I have
experienced such evil in this place he created.

Some may even choose to blame him for it all but
those if we take a minute and humble ourselves and realize we are also guilty of having wronged others from time to time. And we are thankful that our creator is still giving me the breath of life anyway and not just utterly destroying me, I know I am. How could a heavenly Father who knows what I
have done in my life not kill me in my sleep last
night? Why would he do that? Why would he who created me not strike me down for having hurt another member of his creation? Why would he still love and care about me and give me the breath of life knowing I have hurt other persons in his creation? That I have a wayward heart apart from his cleansing. Why are the wicked not destroyed?
Ask yourself, why am I not destroyed?
And then you will know why the wicked are not destroyed. He's waiting for man to choose to love him and to love his creation. He will decide when they have sinned enough, they've done enough and there is no more hope, but there may be hope. But those of us who look for answers, looking toward the Creator of the heavens and the earth and we see he created all these scenes he created beautifully but we also see there is corruption.
And so when there was corruption did he sit
utterly by and say "well, sorry you all messed everything up. I guess that's your problem now." No. He made a plan for redeeming us and there is probably no greater way that his love is manifested into seeing how he served us.
And those who learn of it will realize that Yahweh's
love for us is so unsearchable amazing, every bit is amazing as the world he created us to live in. And any of us who would take the time to read the holy scriptures would discover an amazing love story. And it behooves us to read this love story and the holy scriptures. In my mind, it would be unloving of our Creator to put us on this earth and not give us some kind of direction of how we are supposed to live.
And it's for that reason we need to look for that
direction, something solid, something true, something immovable, something demonstrably real. And anyone taking the time to read the holy scriptures will realize especially if you study it deeply there's no way that it's gonna be put together except by divine inspiration. And a love story that's written there begins with his creation of the heavens and the earth and placing man in a perfect environment without the stain of sin. Created him in his own image and he gave man a choice will you love me back?
I have demonstrated my love for you will you love
me back? And the only way he could possibly know if man's love for him was real is if he had a choice whether he wanted to love Yahweh in return or not. Otherwise, we would just be machines and robots you know loving because we are created to love and we have no other choice. But love out of a choice, I know if my daughter came and gave me a hug I know that will be real. But if I made her come over and hug me doesn't mean so much does it? And so Yahweh wants to know whether we love him
back and there are a few who actually do, Noah,
Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and a few who did he built a love story it's every bit, it's unsearchable amazing as the world he created us to live in, with one man Abraham who chose to love Yahweh in return he built an entire nation off of his offspring.
Even though he had one child and though they also
rebelled against him at times he chose to have mercy on them. He said to you it was shown that you might know Yahweh himself is Elohim there is none besides him. Out of heaven he lets hear his voice that he might instruct you on earth he showed you his great fire and you heard his words out of the midst of the fire. And because he loved you, Fathers, therefore, he chose their descendants after them and he brought you out of Egypt with his presence and with his mighty power. driving out from before you nations greater and mightier than you, to bring you in, to give you their land as inheritance, as it is this day.
Yahweh did not set his love on you nor choose you
because you were more in number than any other people. For you are the least of all the people but because Yahweh loves you and because he will keep the oath which he swore to your Fathers, Yahweh has brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. And we can identify with this because the entire love story of Yahweh saving his people and delivering them is exactly what he did to us personally because Yahweh loves us. He told Israel Nevertheless Yahweh your Mighty one would not listen to Balaam; but Yahweh your Mighty one turned the curse into a blessing for you, because Yahweh your Mighty one loves you. Do we care? That's what he wanted to know. Do you care that I love you?
Now, this is the blessing with which Moshe the man
of Elohim blessed the children of Israel before his death. He said, Yahweh came from Sinai, and dawned on them from Mount Seir; he shone forth from Mount Paran. e came with ten thousands of saints from his right hand, from his right hand came fiery law for them. Yes, he loves the people; all his saints are in your
hand: they sat down at your feet; everyone
receives of your words. He loves the people, so Yahweh was expressing his love by delivering them from bondage. From bringing them and brought them into the land and they'll pass over his Yahweh's way of delivering
Israel from the house of bondage from the land of Egypt.
And that demonstrated Yahweh's love for them and providing that deliverance through the blood of the lamb that saved them from death and enabled them to begin their journey into and tour the promised land. On the same way, Israel had to have faith that Yahweh would use Joshua son of Nun to take them across the Jordan into the promised land. We also must have faith in the blood of the lamp and then a man named Joshua Yahushua in the Hebrew will take us into that promised land. This journey is difficult at times we are tested, Yahweh wants to know if our love is real that's all and whether we are going to put our faith and our trust in him. So Yahweh spent just a little time telling them his love for them and a whole lot of time showing it by his actions. In other nations was amazed at Yahweh's love for his people and were impressed. 1 Kings 10 verse 8 The queen of Sheba said Happy are your men, happy are your servants, who stand continually before you, and hear your wisdom. Blessed be Yahweh your Mighty one, who delighted in you, to setting you on the throne of Israel: because Yahweh has loved Israel for ever, therefore he made you king, to do justice and righteousness.
A righteous king is evidence of Yahweh's love
for his people. An unrighteous king will be evidenced his people are not loving him and therefore it's an act of judgment.
The king of Tyre 2 Chronicles 2:11 Huram king
of Tyre answered in writing, which he sent Solomon, says because Yahweh loves his people, he made you king over them. Because Yahweh loves righteousness and therefore he will love all those who desire to turn to righteousness. salms 11 verse 7 For Yahweh is righteous he loves righteousness; his countenance beholds the upright. Psalm 33 verse 4 For the word of the Yahweh is right; all his work is done in truth. He loves righteousness and justice: the earth is full of the goodness of Yahweh.
Psalm 146 verse 8 Yahweh opens the eyes of the
blind: Yahweh raises those who are bowed down. Yahweh loves the righteous. Yahweh watches over the strangers; he relieves the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turns upside down.
He called Israel and enslaved people out of
their bondage serving them from death by the blood of the lamp through awesome supernatural works.
Brought them through a parched land, a
wilderness, a desert and then to a beautiful land flowing with milk and honey. His love for Israel was supposed to compel them to want to love him back and some did but most didn't,
just like today.

He offers to deliver us from the bondage that we
are in from this condition were we wonder whether we are worthy of being loved. We question whether we are worthy of receiving love from anyone and the answer is, you don't have to be
righteous to be loved by him even why you are
unrighteous. Elohim so loved the world, he gave his only begotten Son that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life.
And those are beautiful words, I'm very thankful
they are in the Scriptures they sum up the gospel but
I like also what's said afterward.
For Elohim did not sent his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He doesn't come for the purposes of condemning.
We see our Creator has a Son just as we have a Son,
He has a Son and he gave his only Son. I'd say it will be harder for him to give his Son then for him to do it himself.
He gave his only begotten Son, could you do that?
As we learn about him we learn his Son is someone who bore the punishment for us, Yahushua the Messiah who came into this world to save us from our own sinful condition rather than condemning us, I'd say that's quite an offer. We only need to believe it and receive it, we only need to act as the faithful did in Israel, trust in the blood of Lamp. And we shall be saved from death it says He who believes in him is not condemned. We deserve to be condemned because we all have failed in our love for Yahweh and our love for our fellow man. We deserve to be condemned but he's willing to say "well I'll have my Son bare your iniquity so that you are not condemned" how about that?
Wow, and the Son willingly did it.

But he who does not believe is condemned
already because he's not believing in the name of the only begotten Son of Elohim, we must believe.
I'm not saying believe just as in acknowledging
his existence or acknowledging what he did.
We might believe in a parachute but it's not
until we put the parachute on and jump out of an aeroplane that we believe in the parachute.
Verse 19 And this is the condemnation that light
has come into the world and man love darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in Elohim. Do we love the light?
Those who don't want to be humble, acknowledge their
wrongs, those who don't want to acknowledge their wrongs will run away from Yahushua and his light far, far away and they hate us. Because by coming to the light deeds that have been dark are exposed and there is a need to turn away from them and people don't want to turn away from them, they like their deeds of darkness, they like their freedoms and not willing to humble themselves before a Savior that they might have to change and be granted eternal life but don't want to change. But those who are humble by his love will respond to his love Yes I gladly receive it, gladly.
is great love with which he loved us even while we
were sinners deserving of death and I will choose to be thankful for it. It is us he will make alive, we were dead in our trespasses and sin and once, you also once walked according to the course of this world, according to prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lights of the flesh fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind and we are by nature children of wrath
just as the others.
But Elohim who is rich in mercy because of his great
love with which he loved us even when we were dead
in our trespasses, made us alive together with Messiah by grace you've been saved and raised us together and made a sit together in the heavenly places of Messiah Yahushua that in the ages to come he might know, show the exceedingly riches of his grace and his kindness toward us and Messiah Yahushua.
Yahweh wants us to look in his actions and see, we
are loved. And there is no better feeling in the world to know that you are loved and that you are clean. You are clean from all your yuck, you are forgiven. Yahushua showed us and sat before the feast of Passover when Yahushua knew his hour had come, he should depart from this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world he loved them to the end. And supper being ended, the devil having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him. Yahushua knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands and that he had come from Elohim when he was going to Elohim. Rose from supper, and laid aside his garments; took a towel, and girded himself. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them with the towel with which he was girded. Then he came to Simon Peter: and Peter said to him, Master, you are washing my feet? Yahushua answered and said to him, What I'm doing you do not understand now, but you will know after this. Peter said to him, You shall never wash my feet. Yahushua answered him If I do not wash you; you have no part with me. Simon Peter said to him, Master, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. Yahushua said to him, He who was bad needs only to wash his feet, but is completely clean: and you are clean, but not all of you. For he knew who would betray him; therefore he said, You are not all clean. So when he had washed their feet, taken his garments, and sat down again, he said to them, Do you know what I have done to you?
You call me teacher the Master: and you say well;
for so I am. If I then, your Master and Teacher, have washed your feet; you also ought to wash one another's feet.
For I have given you an example, that you should
do as I have done to you. Most assuredly, I say to you, A servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him.
If you know these things, blessed are you if you do
them. ou know we all praise Yahushua and his love for us and of the many ways he showed and sometimes there are people who view Yahweh as just stern and judgmental Father who's ready to strike you to death anytime because he hates you. But the Messiah kinda came along you know borrow our sins so Yahweh could calm down now when he's kinda turn to this grand Fatherly figure you know? Not so much bothered by your sin anymore, it's not true. Sending Yahushua was his idea, in fact, Yahushua didn't really want to have to go through with it.
Luke 22 Coming out he went into the Mount of Olives,
as was his custom, and his disciples also followed him. When he came to the place, he said to them, Pray that you may not enter into temptation. He was with John from them about a stone's throw, and he knelt down and prayed. Saying, Father, if it is your will, take this cup from me. That was prayer take this cup away from me.
Nevertheless not my will, but yours, be done.

And when he spoke that our own fate was sealed.
An Angel appeared from to him from heaven strengthening him. And being in agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
So everything he did was because of the will of the
Father, his desire was to not really have to go through with this. But he submitted to his Father's will willingly laying down his life.
Luke 14:10 "Do you not believe that I am in the
Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority, but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. So it was Yahweh's power in him that enabled him to do the things that he did. If it were even possible which is not for Yahweh himself to come down from heaven and dwell in the earth in his complete form which is impossible not the heaven of heavens can contain him. But if it were possible and he will become a man on the earth, he would be doing the things that Yahushua did but since Yahweh the Father cannot die, he needed to send someone. And nevertheless, the Father does grieve greatly. John 5:19 says, Yahushua answered and said to them, sincerely, I say to you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the Father do: for whatever he does, the Son also does in like manner. For the Father loves the Son and shows him all things that himself does: and he will show him greater works than these, that you may marvel.
So Yahushua saw the love with which Yahweh loves
and he chooses to love by showing mercy and
patience, long suffering and compassion.

And as we learn more about him we find that Yahweh's
love for those who are willing to receive it, for those who are willing to repent that means turn away from walking against him and turn toward walking with him, turn away from sin turn toward righteousness away from hatred and toward love. e find out his love is really so constant, so unchanging, so immovable to the extent that Paul cried out saying Who shall separate us from the love of Messiah? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, "For your sake we are killed all day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter." None, of these things that you have experienced in your life, none of the hurtful things that men have done have separated you from Yahweh's love for you.
And all these things we are more than conquerors
through him who loved us.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life,
nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of Elohim, which is in Messiah Yahushua our Master. Nothing is able to separate you from his love for you. Just think about that for a minute. The only thing that can cause Yahweh to be distant from you is your failure and unwillingness to love him. If Yahweh seems distant it's not him that moved. And the love that he has for us, the more we love him the more realize he loves us and the more we realize, I don't ever wanna be distant from his love, I want to be in his grip. Yahushua said my sheep hear my voice and I know them and they follow me. And I give them eternal life and they shall never perish neither shall anyone snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of my Father's hand. So if we fail him I also happen to know that he is very, very patient. The fact he loves us we don't love him actually is a consistent thing throughout Scripture, all throughout Scripture. And that love should be self-evident, and Yahushua says we need to manifest that kind of love.
I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless those who
curse you, do good to those who hate you, pray for those who spitefully use you, and persecute you. That you may be sons of your Father in heaven. For He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward will you have? Do not even tax collectors do the same? And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do the same, or do so? Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven. He's perfect, that is the love of Yahweh that is how he is only Yahweh's love is an everlasting love that never goes away.
I think we live through in a society where everyone
is focused on how they've been victimized, how they've been mistreated and they wallow in a victim mentality. Sometimes you even see a competition between each other about who's the greater victim. Self-pity competitions are never healthy brothers and sisters, just so you know that. But we have now in our modern society it's all about how someone has wronged you, political, social organizations pop up and you would think that their mentality is he who dies with the most funding wins. Yahushua has never focused on how he had been wronged, he was just focusing on how he can bless others and make this world a better place so that the wrongs won't happen, to begin with, setting an example of love and mercy and patience and long suffering.
All that love for us, an otherwise very unfaithful
people. It's manifested in a marriage, he says. Hosea chapter 3 verse 1, He said to me, "Go again, love a woman who is loved by a lover and is committing adultery, just like the love of Yahweh for the children of Israel, who look to other gods and love the raisin cakes of the pagans."
You can imagine what it's like to love someone who
you are married to and then love someone else instead that's how Yahweh feels when we love other things instead of him.
Hosea 11 says When Israel was a child, I loved him,
out of Egypt I called my son. And they called them, so they went from them: they sacrificed to Baals, burned incense to carved images. I taught Ephraim to walk, taking them by their arms, but they did not know that I healed them. I drew them with gentle cords, with bands of love: and I was to them as those who take the yoke from their neck, I stooped and fed them.
He has done this for us too we have not been
faithful. But as we learn about the love of Yahweh for us we begin to understand what true love really is, it's not until we understand Yahweh's love that we can even know what it means to love.
He says love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping
for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be Sons of the Most High: for he is kind to the unthankful and the evil. Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful. He's kind to the unthankful and the evil, we are gonna have a really hard time loving Yahweh and loving others until we truly know and receive
Yahweh's love for us and realize our desperate need
for it. Ephesians 5:2 says, Walk in love, just as Messiah also has loved us and gave Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to Elohim for a sweet smelling aroma. 1 John 4:9, For this the love of Elohim is manifested to us that Elohim must send his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And this is love not that we loved Elohim but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the perpetuation for our sins. But Elohim so loved us we also ought to love one another. 1 John 4:7, Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of Elohim; everyone who loves is born of Elohim and knows Elohim. He who does not love does not know Elohim; for Elohim is love. Think about that for a minute this wherever you
see love that's Elohim, that's Yahweh our Father,
it's his character, it's his identity, it's the definition of him. And for that reason, if we as believers are not showing love then where is Elohim? Is he really on us? Is he really flowing through us if we can't comprehend Yahweh's love for us we may have difficulty adequately giving that love to another person but the more we understand and know how he loves us the better we understand how to love one another, because it's really only the love of Yahweh that flows through us that we can really adequately and properly love another person. That means we have to die, our own selfish ways have
to die.
Since I have been crucified with Messiah; it's no longer I who live, but Messiah lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of Elohim, who loved me and gave Himself for me. 2 Corinthians 5:14, The love of Messiah compels us, because are judged that if one died for all, then all died. And he died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves but for him who died for them and rose again. We don't live for ourselves anymore, our life is not about our self, our life is how we can love others.
Therefore from now on, we regard no one according to
the flesh; even though we have known Messiah according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. Therefore if anyone is in Messiah, he is a new creation;..that's you, a new creation...old things have passed away; behold all things have become new. Wouldn't it be nice just to have a fresh start? That would be great. He offers it to us, if we are willing to receive it, he offers it to us. 2 Corinthians 9:6 But this I say, He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one gives this, he purposes in his heart; not grudgingly, or necessity: for Elohim loves a cheerful giver. We are supposed to share that love and that service to other people.
So what are we willing to do?
Are we willing to share that love? Are we willing? To share that love to another person, to our children, to our wives, to our communities. There are some of you having a hard time understanding that he loves you, you seek to measure up, you seek to perform, you hope that your performance will be acceptable enough for Yahweh to allow you into his kingdom. But you are not really sure, not really certain as to whether or not he really loves you. Now that's more common when people who've had unloving harsh, critical or abusive Fathers, unloving harsh, critical or abusive Mothers because our parents are the first picture, a first snapshot that's imprinted in our minds of what love truly is and, ladies, that's why Motherhood is so important. You have the opportunity to introduce a child coming into this world to love, to experience love, to experience care, to experience nurturing and the things that we do to our babies the first few years of their life will set the tone for how things are for the rest of their life.
Whether they know and have assurance that there is
love available to them. Now there are some of you who grew up without that and you hear this love for Yahweh and you recognize it mentally it's there but in the heart you have a hard time receiving it because you've had abusive parents, maybe an abusive Father, abusive caregiver
but you need to separate what you experienced as a
human being from either a husband, a Father, a Mother or whoever another person, a former relationship separate all these things in their different can part they go somewhere else. And then there is Yahweh's love for you, two different things.
When Yahushua looks at you he sees you as being a
part of himself and the same way Yahweh tells the husbands to love their wives as they love their own bodies.
Husbands ought to love their own wives as their
own bodies, he who loves his wife loves himself. We are members of his body, his flesh, and his bones. He sees this as being a part of himself, wow he
sees it as part of his own body, his own existence, a
part of him.
And I look at that and I say that's pretty amazing
that we will be that important to him.
That he wants you to be part of his body, a part
of who he is, a part of his existence, that's how close we are to our Savior Yahushua the Messiah. That's how much he loves you and me. You ever wondered why would Yahushua choose Peter to be the one, to be the leader, and the first one to speak of Yahweh's grace to the crowds of Jerusalem and he denied Messiah three times outright. And he was the one yet chosen to be the first one to speak to the Gentiles in Acts 10, first one to speak to the Jews in Acts 2. And gave him the key to open the door of ministry to both Jews and Gentiles. And yet he was the one who denied Yahushua three times and there is one time were his disciples got a little testy with Yahushua and that was Peter, he talk of Messiah and he rebuked him and Yahushua looked at him and said keep behind me Satan, you are not mindful of the things of heaven but the things of men. Why would he choose Peter for that? Why didn't he choose like say Nathaniel who seemed to be in the more upright?
Why would Yahweh choose Paul to be an Apostle of
the Gentiles? I mean, Paul was the one who conceded to the death of the very first murder Stephen. Why Paul? Why not one of the other disciples who were more righteous someone more qualified?
As I have already said Yahweh doesn't call the
qualified, he qualifies the called.
And I think Messiah Yahushua our Master who
has enabled me because he counted me faithful pulling me into the Ministry, although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, an insolent man but I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly and unbelief. And the grace of our Master was exceedingly abundant with faith and love which our emissary Yahushua. This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance that Yahushua came into the world to save sinners of whom I am chief. He thought he was the worst, however for this reason I obtained mercy. Why? That in me first Yahushua might show all long suffering as a pattern to those who are going to believe on him forever everlasting life as a pattern that there is still hope.
The grace given to Peter, the one who denied
Yahushua, the grace given to Paul the one who killed a part of Messiah's body was a pattern for the rest of us, Paul especially because the Gentiles for a filthy people full of idolatry, immorality, uncleanness, and Yahweh used Paul as a pattern, for the Gentiles look at Paul and said you if you got grace and Yahweh could forgive you well then maybe he's hope for me too. Maybe his grace really is this far reaching, maybe his love, his mercy really is great.
And that really is amazing and that's the pattern for
you and for me if he can forgive Peter if he can forgive Paul, if he can turn them into men who was recipients of Yahweh's grace, turn their lives around, call them saints (That word saint means Holy one). Then he can do it for you and me also.
I was once a long-haired sinner going to drinking
parties and playing and having metal bands serving various lusts, pleasures. You may not believe that who I was but I was, but now I'm justified not by my own works which I do now but by his grace.
And we all have sinned and fallen short of his glory,

for we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient,
deceit, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful and hating one another. But when the kindness and love of Elohim our Savior toward man appeared, when the love of Elohim appeared not by works of righteousness which we have done but according to his mercy he served us through the washing of the regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit. Whom he poured out on us abundantly through Yahushua Messiah our Savior, there having been justified by his grace, we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
One time, a man told me a story of a friend of his
who had done all these awful, awful terrible things. And they were pretty awful and he asked me the question do you think there is still hope for a man like that? And I asked him a question that says is his heart still beating?
As long as our hearts beat there is still hope.
Even if you are far, far away you can call upon him and receive grace and mercy. And some of us have fallen away multiple times, some of us have gotten trapped in the trappings of sin and addictions multiple, multiple times. And the question for me remains this, what are you going to do today, right now? Today is the day of salvation, don't fear what decisions you may make in the future but you must be a thousand percent committed and willing to say I rededicate my life, I receive grace, I know if I repent today that means I'd turn away my heart, I'm turning away from all unrighteousness and I have made a decision to turn toward righteousness today at this moment. There is still hope. Your are in a condition that Yahweh requires you to be in for him to save your soul. Don't worry about tomorrow take one day at a time. One day at a time. And behold the love Yahweh our Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of Elohim: therefore the world does not know, it's because it did not know him. Beloved, now we are the children of Elohim, and it is not yet been revealed what we shall be. But we know when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure. The only way you can purify yourself is if you tell Yahweh that you seek purification, you repent, you put your faith in Yahushua and that's how you purify yourself. Now, some people they interpret negative circumstances as evidence that Yahweh hates them.
You go through some kind of difficult situation and
they say you know of all that I have done to try to do the right thing and yet here I am in this very awful situation, it's very awful circumstance and they feel that Yahweh is unjust. Yahushua, He crashes and killed but, you, no he wouldn't put you through anything difficult.
Now pardon my sarcasm what makes you think you
deserve anything? I know for me the only thing I deserve is lake of fire, that's it.
But if we are willing to repent, stop accusing our
Father in heaven, humble ourselves, realize he loves us. Don't interpret his attempts correct you or refine you as evidence that he doesn't love you. Yahushua, He crushed and killed and yet you are not going to deny that Yahweh loved him, he was a perfect man. And we are imperfect men and women and we don't deserve anything.
You know scripture says he who spares rod hates his
son, but he who loves him disciplines him promptly. And Yahushua said as many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore, be zealous and repent.
Hebrews 12:4 says You have not yet resisted the
bloodshed, striving against sin. And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as Sons, My son, do not despise the chastening of Yahweh, nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by him. For whom the Yahweh loves he chastens, and scourges every son whom he receives.
It's not a bad thing to be going through some kind of
circumstance that will give us a..., cause us to direct our attention toward him and our need for him. I know of a brother who was going through an awful trial with his family and..., everyday he was in deep prayer and finally he came to me conclude he said "you know I don't know why, I don't know why I'm going through this trial, but I can imagine Yahweh's awfully pleased with all the attention I have been giving to him lately." And sometimes that might be all, he deserves our attention so if he did not
considered us his Sons, he wouldn't chasten us.
He says, If ye endure chastening, Elohim deals with you as sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, and you are illegitimate, and not sons. So the chastening is actually good for us and evidence that we are still are being seen by Yahweh as his children. Furthermore, we have had human Fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect, shall we not much more rather be in subjection to the Father of spirits, and live. For they indeed a few days chastened us to see the best of them; but he for our profit, that we may be partakers of his holiness. Now note chastening seems to be joyful for the present but painful. Nevertheless afterwards the yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. Therefore, strengthen the hands which hang down and the feeble knees. And make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed. I noticed in the Torah, in the scriptures, ancient Israel had a difficult time accepting Yahweh's chastening to be his love. They interpreted his chastening as hatred, and even today many Christians would say, yeah, he was a mean and vengeful. No, he wasn't. He did it because He loved them. If we are not careful, falsely believing Yahweh hates us can actually cause us to be tempted to turn away from him. Moshe, Moses recalls, Every one of you came near to me and say let's send men before us let them search out the land for us and bring back word to us of the way by which we should go up and of the cities to which we shall come. The plan pleased me well: so I took twelve of your men, one man from each tribe. And they departed and went up into the mountains, and came to the valley of Eshcol, and spited out. They also took some of the fruit of the land in their hands, and brought it down to us, and brought back word to us, saying, It is a good land which Yahweh our Mighty one is giving us. Nevertheless, he would not go up but rebelled against the command of Yahweh your Mighty One. And you complain in your tents, and said, Because Yahweh hates us, he's brought us out of the land of Egypt, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us. There was no faith because they believed Yahweh hated them, he doesn't hate us but I can imagine all the plagues they went through, all the difficult times and trials they went through, maybe some interpreted Yahweh chastening as his hatred for them but it wasn't, it was simply correction
because he loved them.
He said you should know in your heart that Yahweh...as a man chastens his Sons so Yahweh you Mighty One chastens you. Therefore, you shall keep the commandments of Yahweh your Mighty One, to walk in His ways and to fear Him. So they couldn't fathom... they had been recipients of plagues and discipline and all these things from disobedience and rather than interpreting his discipline as evidenced that they were his children interpreting it instead as hatred and figured Yahweh wasn't gonna bring them out of Egypt, he's just gonna destroy them all, they didn't believe. And so if you are going through trials and difficult circumstances it's still the love of Yahweh. it's for your good, it's evidence of his love for you and so count all joy as it says in the book of James. When we have faith in Yahweh's love it will help us not only get through the trials and tribulations. But we actually find glory in it, can you believe that? Romans 5:1 says, Therefore having been justified by faith, we have peace with Elohim through our Master Yahushua Messiah. Through Him also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand and rejoice in hope of the glory of Elohim. And not only that but we also glory in tribulations: knowing that tribulation produces perseverance, character hope. Now hope does not disappoint because the love of Elohim is important on us and to our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. For when we were still without strength, in due time Messiah died for the unrighteous. For scarcely for a righteous man would one die: yet perhaps for a good man, someone wouldn't even dare to die. But Elohim demonstrates his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Messiah died for us. Do we see here how Yahweh's love is the foundation, confidence in his love is the foundation of our faith from which everything else will flow from with a relationship with Yahweh can flourish from which our relationships with one another can also flourish? We don't have to fear Yahweh's torment in the age to come. The pain we endure in this life is the closest thing that to that will ever experience. The pain in this life, the pain from chastening the fire we go through is for cleansing not for destruction and the only pain we'll ever experience. His fire is not there to destroy us. It's only there to blow off the draws that's within us our impurities. So don't interpret the difficulties you are facing as evidence that he is unkind, unloving really it's evidence of his love for you.
No one has seen Elohim at any time.
1 John 4:12, If we love one another, Elohim abides in us, and his love has been perfected in us. By this, we know that we abide in him, and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and testified that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world.
Whoever confesses that Yahushua is the Son of
Elohim, Elohim abides in him, and he in Elohim. And we have known and believed the love that Elohim has for us. We have known and believed his love. Elohim is love, and he who abides in love abides in Elohim, and Elohim in him. Love has been perfected, among us and this that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. That's because we are made in his image.
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out
fear: because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love. We love him because he first loved us.
Do we see how Yahweh's love for us is the
foundation of everything? We don't fear torment in the lake of fire we don't need to now. We are in a relationship with him, whoever
confesses that Yahushua is the Son of Elohim, Elohim
abides in him, and he in Elohim. And we have known and believed his love. Love has been perfected, among us and this that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are...so we don't fear death that's bondage, we don't fear death because we know and we believe the love he has for us. To abide in it means to live in it, to dwell in it, to endure in it, to remain in it, to just wallow in it, to bay their selves in it, to rejoice in it, to stand in O of it, to send back and shout Hallelujah about it, to sing about it, to wanna tell the whole world about it and proclaim it to this entire planet and to this lost and dying world.
His love is the solution to everything, everything.

Let's pray O, Yahweh for this reason I bow my knees

to you, a Father of my Master Yahushua from whom
the whole family in heaven, earth is named.
That you Father Yahweh will grant all of us
according to the riches of your glory to be strengthened with might through your spirit in the inner man. That the Messiah Yahushua may dwell in our hearts through faith and that all of us being rooted and grounded in love may be able to comprehend with all the saints, what is the width, and length, and depth, and height to know the love of Messiah which passes knowledge? That all of us may be filled with all your fullness.
And to you who are able to exceedingly, abundantly,
above all that we ask and think, according to the power that you work in us. To you, Yahweh Elohim be the glory and the assembly
of people, through Yahushua Ha Mashiach,
Yahushua the Anointed, the Messiah. to all generations now and forever more, and it's in his name we pray, Amein. ..
