Truth is a key that unlocks doors. What doors are keeping you from functioning in the fullness of the purpose and calling of the Creator?
So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” – John 8:31,32
So Yeshua said to the Yehudi sect that followed His teachings that if you “abide” (to stay, endure, remain) in my word or teachings, you are truly my discipline students or of my yoke or my followers and you will know or have knowledge of the truth and this truth will set you free.
The only way to gain the knowledge of the truth that sets you free is to “stay, endure, remain” in His teachings and those who remain in His teachings are His disciples and it is these disciples that will know the truth.
The freedom that this truth gives is the freedom from sin. It is the wicked bondage of sin that is keeping you from operating in the fullness of your purpose and from functioning in your calling.
The uncertain, weak, inconsistent voice of ambiguity is the snare that entraps its victims in confusion and unfulfilled purpose. While the sure, strong, consistent voice of Identity is the launch pad for wholeness and fulfillment.
There is power that comes with operating with knowledge, and it is that knowledge that is withheld from the disenfranchised.
The truth is if we start operating as if we are already in the Kingdom that Yeshua came to establish we will flourish in the fullness of our purpose and calling according to the Most High. This is the ‘culture” that our Messiah came to establish with the house of Israel and the stranger that clings to Israel for it is the kingdom that is the good news.
What is knowledge?
“The proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel:
2To know wisdom and instruction,
to understand words of insight,
3to receive instruction in wise dealing,
in righteousness, justice, and equity;
4to give prudence to the simple,
knowledge and discretion to the youth—
5Let the wise hear and increase in learning,
and the one who understands obtain guidance,
6to understand a proverb and a saying,
the words of the wise and their riddles.
7The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge;
fools despise wisdom and instruction.” – Proverbs 1:1-7
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.” – Proverbs 9:10
Knowledge is to give honor and seek Yahwey and to be petrified of straying from His Torah!
Knowledge is the insight of the:
Holy One of Israel
As the disciplined students of the Messiah we teach the lost sheep of Israel the culture of the kingdom we are in fact establishing the rulership of the Most High in the earth. Gathering our people to remember the Holy One of Israel the Yehway of their ancestors teaching them to fear the Most High is wise.
“I will take you from the nations and gather you from all the countries and bring you into your own land. 25I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean from all your uncleannesses, and from all your idols I will cleanse you. 26And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. 27And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules.a 28You shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers, and you shall be my people, and I will be your God.” – Ezekiel 36:24-28
This is the truth that will set you free!
I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules. If we abide, remain, endure, stay in His word we will “walk in His statutes and be careful to obey His rules” and this will be our freedom!
I believe identity is central to fulfilling our role as kingdom citizens, or Called out ones, or men and women, royalty, or followers of the Way. To establish the kingdom of the Most High is to fortify HIS rulership in you and your community. As a kingdom citizen you confront inferior and adverse mindsets that oppose the good news. A kingdom mentality and a slave mentality cannot operate in the same individual.
The enemy of your purpose desires you to remain ignorant of your identity so that your calling is clouded and you remain uncertain of your role in facilitating freedom for your people.
Knowledge is your friend for you cannot please the Most High with growing in it, shalom.
