About That Relationship
There is a difference set between being ‘related’, having a ‘relation’ and a ‘relationship’. You can be ‘related’ by having an in-common ancestor or even an by marriage ‘relation’. But that does not mean or insure that you even in your own or extended family have a ‘relationship’ with any of them – let alone those not of your own family.
About that ‘personal relationship’ with ‘Jesus Christ’. A ‘personal relationship’ is a ‘sameness’, it involves a ‘blending’ to become. A marriage is the two becoming as one, it is then only after being married that you find out which one. A ‘relationship’ is normally a coalescing – a coming along side, the process of becoming same – humanly speaking.
2Cor.6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
Interestingly we don’t usually think much of the words we use like ‘communion’ it actually is the ‘conjunction’ a ‘with’ ‘joining’ to become or merge as one. In this case ‘communion’ is the merging of common – union which itself speaks of a ‘sameness’ becoming one.
The ‘common – union’ of ‘relationship’ involves a ‘sameness’ of thought’s, actions, desires, dreams, purpose, origin, goals, ideals, values, gifts, abilities, interests, intents, etc. and many times multiples of the forgoing.
In interpersonal relationships among the 1st things you would want to know is the name of your ‘friend’. We’ve been taught that the ‘name’ of our personal ‘Saviour’ is Jesus. But our personal ‘Saviour’ is a Hebrew Israelite. There has never been a ‘J’ in the Hebrew language, There has never been a ‘J’ in the Greek language, There was never a ‘J’ in even the English language till the 1600’s. So my ‘friend’ the one we in error called Jesus who lived 2000yrs ago; the supposed ‘name above all names’ is impossible.
His name is ‘Yahshua’ the sinless Son of Yahweh; and that’s the point He is sinless, we are not. We have not been ‘sinless’ but we can repent to agree and endeavor to sin ‘less’ with the goal of not sinning. But to do that we must know what obedience to righteousness is and almost more importantly what it is not. For we already know ‘which one’ we will become; we are to be like Him. He is never going to be like sinful wayward prone us.
1-2-3-4-5&6 – 1Jn 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. :4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a **liar**, and the truth is not in him. :5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of Yah perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. :6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
“as he walked” ie ‘the same’ the very definition of ‘relationship’ – That is to put on the very mind of a Torah/Shabbat/Com’dt Keeping Hebrew Israelite Melkizedeq High Priest Messiah.
Act 15:19 Wherefore my sentence is, that we trouble not them, which from among the Gentiles are turned to Yah: :20 But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood. :21 For Moses of old time hath in every city them that preach him, being read in the synagogues every sabbath day.
Heb 4:2 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: …
There it is again – these verses speak of ‘sameness’. So how is it that we ignore what the Israelites did – Sabbath, Feastdays, Clean Meats, etc. and do what the Israelites never did – Sunday, Christmas, Eastre, Pork, etc. This clearly is Not the ‘same’, it is Not the ‘same’ Gospel.
We are to;
Act 17:11 … [search] the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
Mat 6:33 … seek ye first the kingdom of Yah, and his righteousness;…
A likeness; a ‘sameness’ that we would do well to compare to & investigate everything we have been presented & have already accepted.
