Who Am I?
When we become believers, we become children of YHVH. He is our Father who loves us unconditionally and wants the best for us. If we did not have an earthly father who modelled this love for us, or failed us in any way, we may not be able to fully comprehend this love the Father has for us. It is human nature to equate our perception of our earthly father with whom we think YHVH is. The reality is that our earthly fathers will fail us and this will give us a flawed perception of who YHVH is. If your father didn’t protect you, you will have difficulty is trusting YHVH for protection. If your father always criticized you, you will see YHVH as a Father looking for faults in you. This brokenness robs us of the blessing of our Father’s love and makes it difficult or impossible for us to have a relationship with Him built on absolute trust. We need to study the word and find our true identity in Y’shua.
An introduction to the spiritual realm
Although we all talk about the physical and the spiritual worlds, very few have done a study on this topic. The result is that we all walk around with different views of this spiritual dimension. Most of us do acknowledge the existence of a spiritual world. This is where the common agreement stops. If we believe that some of our problems originate in the spiritual realm, we need to get a good understanding of what this truly means.
