How do we know if we have YHVH’s Spirit in us?
There are many references to YHVH’s Set Apart Spirit in Scripture. In the Tanakh we read of many people who had the Spirit of YHVH upon them always in order for them to perform a task or position. In the Apostolic writings we read of Y’shua speaking of this promise of YHVH, which will be fulfilled after He ascended to Heaven. This promise was YHVH’s Spirit as a helper to all who believed. Do you know if you have YHVH’s Spirit in you?
When do you swap love for a strong rebuke?
We all know that we need to love our brother. We also know that we need to keep an eye on ourselves and our brother. Yet, it is not always easy to decide what to do when your brother does something you feel is not right. But what to do then? It is difficult to decide when should I ignore it for the sake of love and unity, when should I mention it or when should I be as harsh as cutting all ties. Let us do a study to see what we can learn from the Scriptures on this topic.
What are the implications if we claim to be disciples of Y’Shua? Several people asked Y’Shua this question and He provided some interesting answers. Y’Shua also made clear what the potential results will be if we do decide to become His disciples. We also need to ensure that we apply this to our lives today.
Evangelize as Y’Shua did
We often meet people who are convinced of their truth and are willing to share this with everybody willing to listen. If these people sense any disagreement, it can usually lead to long and heated debate. When you go on the internet onto social sites like Facebook, you find the exact same pattern. In the Scriptures we find some good examples of how we should be acting. What can Y’Shua teach us in His encounter with the Samaritan woman?
