Old Covenant ~ Fulfilled Covenant

January 27, 2015 at 2:51 am (WSGD Newes) (, , , , , , , , )

Matthew 5:17
Don’t think that I have come to abolish the Torah or the Prophets. I have not come to abolish but to complete.

Exodus 20:14
Do not commit adultery.

With every single command we must ask – “Who is God?”. For every single instruction God gave was His communication of: I Am God  – I Am who made you – I Am who made all things; therefore all things are made to tell you I Am. Most of us don’t see how everything we do or say communicates intimately who we are – what and why we love, etc. We disconnect everything and have many files by which we label the things we say and do. We have files that are defined as; “Things I do and say that have nothing to do with who I am” and “Things I do and say that have everything to do with who I am”. God has no such files. Everything He said/says, does/did or will do has everything to do with Who He Is/was/and ever shall be.

With this in mind I approach the 6th commandment – Do not commit adultery. I begin taking notes:
*What is adultery to God?
*Who is God in faithfulness? (How does it define His Character)
*Why did He communicate this specific instruction?

Then because Yeshua (Jesus) said He came to fulfill/complete this instruction, I take more notes:
*What does fulfill mean?
*How did/does Yeshua fulfill faithfulness – or not committing adultery?
Since Yeshua said, “If you have known Me – you have known the Father.” (John 14:7) These two pictures must come together to completion. His words are clear – you cannot divorce the Old from the New. This in and of itself is a form of adultery. The Torah (Instructions – 1st 5 Books of the Bible) and Yeshua are a marriage, they have been from the beginning. It took Yeshua (Salvation) to keep the command before He came as a human and it takes Him now after His walk on earth with the Father, His death, resurrection and ascension. The early Messianic Body only had the Torah, Prophets, Psalms and Proverbs as a Bible. Titus studied only the Old Testament; as did all those who Followed Yeshua for 100’s of years following His ascension. The Truth of Yeshua is/was found in confirmation in the Old Testament; it still is.

This series will show my own studies of how Yahweh points us to Him intimately from the beginning. The Old Testament points forward to Him who keeps His promises 》Yeshua, and the New Testament that points to the Promise Keeper 》Yeshua. Backwards and forwards Adonai points to Himself. Reveals who He is in an intimate communication of invitation for relationship and intimacy with the Creator and the Created (us). A heart of Love that communicates how He made us and why. Not to prove ‘I am God’ though it does; but to prove what kind of God He is. One who will instruct to the detail how we can stay so connected to Him that evil will not have any influence upon our being. Which is the true definition of Freedom.

Adultery in relation to Yeshua would not have applied to Him in any other way than the way Adonai spoke of adultery in the Old Testament. Yeshua never married a woman. Yet, He could have been unfaithful to God, His Father. Which all the prophets spoke (or repeated what God said to them) of in reference to Israel’s adultery with Himself.

It’s important to note this: It is impossible to break any commandment following the first if the first is kept faithfully. If we love God with all we are, have, and do all the others will come natural to the flow of our love and commitment to Him. Then we see what Yeshua meant by “all the laws and prophets are summed up in two commands (Matt.22:36-40) – Love the Lord your God with all you are, have and do – and Love your neighbor as if they are Him. I realize I’m seemingly putting the second in outrageous wording. But we know – “love someone as you love yourself” – we’ve all seen the whole world loves – selfishly. The words must reflect the intent of God’s heart. Which is to say they must reflect what they are meant to do – as in transform – in us. If we take the first commandment – Love God alone with all you are, say, do and have at your disposal – materialistically, physically, emotionally, spiritually. We are and become a being that says:
“I am a vessel that God made and only He may use. Because I not only believe and am convinced He indeed made myself and all; but also I’m in union/agreement with Him in how myself and all that He made shall be treated, loved, and related to.”
If we LIVE this command; how can we break any other? Loving my neighbor as myself goes far beyond the human ideal of what love is. For to love oneself is at the very heart of satan, who loves himself more than God. This is the kind of love we naturally and by example (sadly) show each other to love like. The translations are lacking in understanding what God means – not what we think like. So I re-worded Yeshua’s 2nd command by what He reveals it means – not by the English translation of the words. You must, of course, test this yourself in the fire of His own teaching to you. Ask Him, He’ll speak directly into your questions and all of Scripture will only fuel the fire which burns what He teaches into your heart. Never take anyone’s word but His.

So the only place to go and understand how Yeshua fulfills the command to not commit adultery IS in the Old Testament. Where His Father spoke over and over about what “outward” adultery (physical) is as the by-product of the “inward”. Which is essentially the breaking of the 1st commandment, both in the Old and the New:
1st Commandment – Exodus 20:3 – Old
1st Commandment – Matthew 22:37 – New

Note:
When thinking of the word – fulfill. Picture a jar – a stone jug/vessel which has been made to hold a gallon of water. If the jar is constantly only filled half way or three quarters full – it is not being used as it was made to its full capacity. Yeshua – fulfills – as in – fills up the vessel all the way to the top; so as to make the vessel completely used as it was intended. Full. Filled. The way it was designed from the beginning by God alone.

Man dreams and desires; God broods and wills and quickens.  ~ George MacDonald

I begin to understand how complex and mysterious the call forth to a certain task by Adonai (the Lord) can be with each passing day. I am grateful I only live one at a time! For so very long my heart has cried out, “Come soon Lord!” That as I prayed today and the words were different, I stood “agape” at the change. Though I still look for Him, with a passion that keeps the lamps filled; today I see two things a bit clearer.

1) I am not looking for Him as if He’s not here already.

2) I find a “waiting” hidden inside that encapsulates a “mission”. Daunting in its largeness, and profound in that He would give it to me! No worthiness on my part has sanctioned its commission!

I would love to expound on the nature in detail of this call…but alas He “zips my lips” in giving a detailed description. Lets just say I am flabbergasted to find an arena someone hasn’t covered in the simplest and most important aspect of walking with God! With all the resources out there and years of accumulations to them; this seems nearly impossible to me. Add to that, I can think of no less than a hundred others that are or would have been both “more qualified and more “listenable””! Of whom I feel His “audience” would both be broader and more inclined to heed. I find myself, more than once a day saying, “Ya sure Ya want me to do this!?”  Mind you, this is how I learn to question Him and He teaches me the answers in new ways each day. He calls, He qualifies, He does ALL the work and can use anybody He wants, but wills that it be me!

As I look at those He has called and commissioned before me, I realize a great deal more the inner “comings and goings” at Yeshua’s feet. How important a more private and out of the “lime-light” He needs His child to be at times. Seemingly hidden and un-noteworthy to a world with eyes that stage a worthy show in smoke and flashes, loud music and dancing…bent for…entertainment. I am grateful the timing is His, the effect is His, and most especially the result.

I hear, I obey. That is so preciously simple…and likely…if I stick close to Him 🙂

I look forward each day to how He will lead me! What new color He will introduce to a canvas of a dream I didn’t even know I had! Indeed it was there all the time, but my dreams and desires without His will and quickening didn’t even scratch the surface of the impossible we are each called to believe in! Every single tiny thought and idea He gives feeds the larger picture; a picture I can’t even see all of but I know its there! There, you see I am unable to find the words to describe it effectively, but there again I know some will know exactly what I am “saying”. This is the whole sale beauty of living in the Kingdom of His will! The riches are so far removed from what this world considers valuable! There’s no doubt that as Emily Dickenson wrote (one of my favorite quotes)
“I dwell in possibility.”
Yet at the same time I dwell in Impossibility! Only in God and God alone can two polar opposites exist in the same flux of a soul!

This passage from Ezekiel comes ALIVE to me!

Ezekiel 16:8-14

Again I passed by you, looked at you and saw that your time had come, the time for love. So I spread my cloak over you to cover your private parts and entered into a covenant with you, says Adonai Elohim, and you became Mine. Then I bathed you in water, washed the blood off you, and anointed you with oil. I also clothed you with an embroidered gown, gave you fine leather sandals to wear, put a fine linen headband on your head and covered you with silk. I gave you jewelry to wear, bracelets for your hands, a necklace for your neck, a ring for your nose, earrings for your ears and a beautiful crown for your head. Thus you were decked out in gold and silver; your clothing was of fine linen, silk and richly embroidered cloth; you ate the finest flour, honey and olive oil. You grew increasingly beautiful – you were fit to be queen. Your fame spread among the nations because of your beauty, because it was perfect, due to My having bestowed My own splendor on you, says Adonai Elohim.

May it be as You will my God! Though I care not a wit about fame, or even beauty as such as this world would recognize, but oh how I desire that YOU become famous and seen as beauty incomparable to anything we have ever known! Be glorified my King, You who burns in the bushes of Truth! Light the fire again my Light and Salvation! LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
