Repairing The Breach




Today I will discuss what the Holy Spirit is. In John chapter three we read;

34 For He whom Elohiym has sent speaks the words of Elohiym: for Elohiym gives not the Spirit by measure unto Him.

35 The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand.

So what is this spirit that was given to His son without measure?

Scripture tells us, we see that in Revelations 3 that Yehshua possesses the seven spirits of Elohiym

Rev 3:1

3:1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; these things saith He that has the seven Spirits of Elohiym, and the seven stars;

In The book of Isaiah we find a description of the seven spirits that Yehshua was given, all in one complete package, no guess work involved, it is very clear and straightforward;

Isa 11:1-3

1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:

2 And the spirit of Yehweh shall rest upon Him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Yehweh;

3 And shall make Him of quick understanding in the fear of Yehweh:

Verse 2 gives us the description of the seven spirits that make up our creator’s character and the spirit that He gave His son without measure.

We will find in a moment that He wants to give us these attributes of His character as well but there is a price, we must give up the attributes of our own character and let His spirit change us.

Here is the list extracted from verse two;

1- The spirit of YEHWEY This is who He is and He is love.
2- The spirit of HIS WISDOM
3- The spirit of HIS UNDERSTANDING
4- The spirit of HIS COUNSEL (Advice)
5- The spirit of HIS MIGHT (Strength or power)
6- The spirit of KNOWLEDGE (This is knowledge of His TRUTH)
7- The spirit of the FEAR of YEHWEH.

Notice how Isaiah expounds on seventh spirit in the next verse;

3 And shall make Him of quick understanding in the fear of Yehweh:

I am sure that not many of you have really ever thought about the Messiah having a fear of not being in agreement with His Father but this is a reality that you cannot deny. He obeyed His Father in every point because He loved Him, He wanted to be in agreement with Him, He wanted what His Father had to offer.

These seven characteristics of the spirit that He wants to give us are beautiful, and yes, He does want to give them to us, but by design, we have to desire them with all of our being.

In doing so, we are in fact desiring Him, His ways. We are desiring to be made in His image which is the entire purpose we were created.

I am going to discuss this list from the top down. I did a video yesterday on Fearing Yehweh that goes into more detail on fearing Him than we will here today if you want look at that.

So much hinges on us fearing to miss out on what He wants to give us.

In Matthew 10;

28 And fear not them which can kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul or eternal life: but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both eternal life and body in Ghehenna (Ghehenna  which is the valley of hinnom is symbolic for the lake of fire or final judgment)

So Yehshua was given the spirit of fearing going against His Father because He desired with all of His being to be at one with and in total agreement with Him.

This is the choice that each of us must make as well. We must hunger and thirst to be in His family

Number 6, The spirit of knowledge of the truth. This is very important since we read in…

John 8:31-32

31 Then said Yehshua to those Jews which believed on him, if you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed;

32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

John 14:6

6 Yehshua saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.

He also tells us elsewhere that we are sanctified by the truth. Our creator is not concerned with what you or I think is true. He is the truth, His son became the truth and we are to become the truth. We are to live the truth.

We are told that the word is truth and that the truth is the light. Everything that is not of the truth is of the darkness.

If you do not fear to be in agreement with the truth, that is your choice. You are just choosing to give up eternal life.

Ps 119:150-151

150 They draw nigh that follow after mischief: they are far from your law.

151 You are near, O YEHWEH; and all of your commandments are truth .

1 John 2:3-5

3 And hereby we do know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments.

4 He that saith, I know him, and keeps not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

5 But whoso keeps his word, in him verily is the love of Elohiym perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him. (John is saying that living the word is living the truth of Yehweh and this perfects the spirit of His love or His character in us and this is how we know we are in Him, because we are in the truth)

Pretty straight forward, the commandments lead us to the truth because they are truth. They are not a burden; they are a delight because they bring us into subjection to His will and shape us into His character.

If you want to continue to live a lie that the commandments were done away with, that is your choice, but it will lead to your destruction. The commandments lead us to life.

Number five, the spirit of His might or of His strength or His power.

If you lean on your own strength or your own power you do not trust your creator. We are to overcome. We might be able to overcome some personal battles of the flesh on our own will power but we cannot overcome Satan on our own power or strength.

This is why he was placed here. It is by design that we must rely on our Creator, the power that He will give us to overcome satan and his deceptive powers. But we must first yield to our creator’s will to receive His help.

Ps 20:5-7

5 We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name or the character of our Elohiym we will set up our banners: Yehweh fulfill all of our petitions. (Solomon recorded that our prayers are an abomination to our Creator if we turn our ear from hearing his law)

6 Now know I, that Yehweh saves His anointed; He will hear him from His holy heaven with the saving strength of His right hand.

7 Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name, or the character of Yehweh our Elohiym.

Ps 71:16

16 I will go in the strength of Yehweh Elohiym: I will make mention of His righteousness, even of His only.

There is another kind of strength that is not good, we read about it in;

Jer 23:10

10 For the land is full of adulterers; for because of swearing the land mourns; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up, and their course is evil, and their strength is not right.

James tells us that friendship with the ways of this world, with the kingdom of this age is adultery to our Elohiym. That we are His enemy if we are in agreement with the world, rejecting the truth.

Number 4; the spirit of His counsel. Our guidance needs to come from Him. We are not to choose our own paths.

Also, If we give advice to others relying on our own understanding or our own reasoning, our advice is just wrong if it does not agree with Him. The only advice that matters is what comes from our creator

Deut 32:28-29

28 For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them.

29 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end.

Prov 1:23-31

23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

24 Because I have called, and you refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;

25 But you have set at naught all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:

29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of Yehweh:

30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

Prov 19:20-21

20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that you may be wise in your latter end.

21 There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of Yehweh that shall stand.

Number 3, the spirit of understanding

Prov 3:5-7

5 Trust in Yehweh with all of your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding.

6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

7 Be not wise in your own eyes: fear YEHWEH, and depart from evil.

He is not interested in what we think is right or wrong. We see this clearly with the sin of the first man. Elohiym says look, man has made himself to be like me, to decide right from wrong for himself,therefore Elohiym cast them out of the garden where the tree of life was and they were cut off from the tree that would have given them life through obedience.

The tree of life is representative of these seven spirits that make up His spirit that He wants to give us.

Are you and I under a different set of rules than Adam and Eve?

Number 2, the spirit of wisdom.

This is not wisdom that comes from our thinking. Apart from His wisdom, our hearts are deceitful beyond measure.

Jer 10:10-12

10 But Yehwey is the true Elohiym, He is the living Elohiym, and an everlasting king: at His wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.

11 Thus shall you say unto them, The elahh’s or false gods that have not made the heavens and the earth, even they shall perish from the earth, and from under these heavens.

12 He has made the earth by His power, He hath established the world by His wisdom , and has stretched out the heavens by His discretion.

Our creator’s wisdom is a powerful resource and He wants us to desire it with all of our being, leaning not on our own ideas but leaning totally on what He teaches us, the way of love, the way of life.

I reversed the order because I wanted to end on the subject of the spirit of Yehweh.

His very nature is love. Not like love the way that we think of it on a physical plain of giving and receiving of a feeling, but rather love on a pure plain, a plain of living a life of giving. The joy is in the giving, giving happiness, help, supplying needs, whatever is good and upright, the giving of the truth that heals our minds. It is selfless love.

He created us with the ability to experience the feeling of joy and happiness, sorrow or hurt, to be in awe, or to delight in something, or to take pleasure in things. He gave us the senses to touch, smell, hear, speak, and see.

But He created us this way to experience life through Him and to become pure like He is. The reason that we are temporary is that we have chosen to put Him on the back burner and to pervert who He is and we draw His character up and worship who we want Him to be.

We have rejected His truth.

He created everything and holds everything together and all He wants is for us to want to be a part of that, to let Him design and perfect our lives.

He knows our every thought and we think we know better than He does? We reject the very truth that He would give us that would remove our temporary nature of being in the flesh. He wants to give us eternal life in His family.

He is pure love and He wants us to become pure love.

His commandments make us pure if we live them, there would be no hunger in the world if we lived them, there would be no broken homes, no murder, nobody without a roof over their heads.

There would be nobody hurt from being lied to, or cheated at the market. There would be no door locks because there would be no theft. There would be no sickness or disease.

There would be no murdering of millions of babies each year because there would not be one murdered.

There would be no evil because evil would be purged out from among us as He commanded us to do.

We would simply live out our lives proving to Him that we want to be in His family for eternity by learning His ways and acting on what He teaches us.

And, eventually we would reach a point where He knows that we want what He has to offer and nothing else and He would change us into spirit and we would be given keys to His house, the universe and beyond.

His proposal is awesome indeed.

He gave man 6,000 years to do it their way and there has been so much hurt, so much sorrow, and so much destruction.

He is merciful but He is also just. True love is not letting evil prevail as man has done for six thousand years. He allowed for man to do this because he had to give us free will. He wanted us to choose to come out what is wrong and choose Him. Only 144,000 have done this, this is a very small flock just as Yehshua said it would be.

YEHWEH begat a son and sent Him to us to show us the way of His instructions. We rejected Him. This was all prophesied to happen and it will be a witness against man in the judgment.

Man chose to continue to live lies by making false religions so they could live their lives apart from His truth.

Now is the time to repent, to flee from the lies and fight for Him to give you His seven spirits, His very character. These spirits teach us His way of thinking, to love what is right and hate what is evil.

It is high time to return to the truth, to the truth that the Patriarchs and the rest of the 144,000 lived, believing our Elohiym and fearing to depart from His perfect ways, trusting in Him for everything and being taught by Him, His ways, through the power of His spirit.

Rev 5:6
