Change. It’s a word that most human beings don’t like to consider. But it is always happening in our lives, for better or for worse. Are our changes making us more like Yahshua, our Master, or are we being molded into the image of men?
Change, in the positive, according to The Instruction/Torah of Yahweh, is the reality of repentance. In the Hebrew it is shuwb, pronounced shüv.
18For many – of whom I have often told you, and now say to you even weeping – walk as enemies of the stake of Messiah.
19Their end is destruction, their mighty one is their stomach, and their esteem is in their shame – they mind the earthly. (ISR Bible Hub)
Our appetite changes as we walk through life. We get tired of what we have, and want new, we want more, and our appetite is never satiated. So we are changing with every wind that blows, and every new thing. What we need to follow is that which is unchanging. We need to follow the One who never changes. He is Yahweh, and He begins and completes the work of faith in and through each of us. This is the more excellent Way of Love. Yahweh is Love, therefore Yahshua is Love, and the Set Apart Spirit is Love, and the Instructions are Loving Instructions, which is the Standard for change. This is why Yahshua said, “If you love Me, keep My Commandments.” Which are Yahweh’s Commandments, as Yahshua and Father Yahweh are One!
The Standard for change is the same, as He is the same. As we submit, He works change in us, making us into the very image of our Master, Yahshua HaMaschiach. It’s a constant change – a constant course correction, and it is only as we submit to the True Head of The True Body (if, indeed, we are born again, from above, and are a part of His True Body), and allow Him to direct our way. By the way, our way, is His Way – Messiah, if we submit our appetites to Him. We will steadily change walk more and more as He walked.
This only happens in turning back and entering into the New Covenant in the blood of Messiah. This is the Only Way, and the Only Truth, and the Only entrance into Life. The other ways are death, because they are lies! We must reject all other ways; the direction of men who speak their own words, and a changed course, in them, that leads to themselves, or to other men who have gone before. Theirs is another way!
