An Intimate Relationship With Yahweh

Do YOU have One?

   I am Yahweh, and there is no one else; besides Me there is no Elohim. I will gird you, though you have not known Me; that they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is no one besides Me: I am Yahweh, and there is no one else. I form the light, and create darkness; I make peace and create evil; I am Yahweh that does all these things, Isaiah 45:5 -7.

Relationship Foundation
   There is one El
Thou believest that there is one El; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble, James 2:19.
   First, one must establish that a relationship exists. And how is this done?
And by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments, 1 John 2:3.
   Next, in order to know Yahweh, we must think like Yahweh. In order to think like Yahweh, we must have the "mind of Yahweh." And, in order to have the "mind of Yahweh," we must have the set-apart (Holy) Spirit of Yahweh indwelling.
   The set-apart (Holy) Spirit is Yah's heart/mind and character. This set-apart (Holy) Spirit can turn a self-centered worldly mind into the spiritual righteous loving mind like Yahweh’s. The set-apart (Holy) Spirit can only come after true repentance.

Becoming Intimate with Yahweh
   To think as one with Yahweh is to be intimate with Yahweh. Once we have attained the ability to think like “El’s-like mind,” we come to understand why we are spiritually motivated to keep Yah’s Commandments/ Torah. Why? Because they can now be viewed as our Commandments also. How could we not want to keep them? So what do we receive and understand from the "Mind of Yahweh"?

Scriptural Gift Facts
   1. That the Tanach (1st testament) and the Brit Hadasha (last testament) are the perfect spiritually inspired "Mind of Yahweh" and is never changing;
   2. There is no spiritual difference between the Torah/Commandments of Yahweh given through Moshe and the prophets or the Torah/Commandments, given through Messiah Yahshua and His apostles. The worldly-minded man, both a Yahudite (Jewish person) and a foreigner, misunderstands Yah's Torah/Commandments because they are under the spirit of error;
   3. The worldly-minded man cannot understand the Spirit of Yah or those with the belief of Yahshua. They see everything from a physical perspective; and
   4. Worldly minded men will seek either “free salvation,” a get-out-of-jail-free card, the lie of once saved always saved, or “earned salvation,” by works of the letter of the Torah and not out of love, which is the Spirit of the Torah/Word. Yahshua is the Living/Breathing Torah/Word. The Belief of Yahshua is to walk as Yahshua walked.

Knowing Yahweh
   But now that you have come to know Yahweh, or rather to be known by Yahweh, how turn you back again to the weak and beggarly rudiments, to which you desire to be in bondage over again? (Galatians 4:9).
   Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of Yahweh; and everyone that loves is begotten of Yahweh, and knows Yahweh. Whoever does not love does not know Yahweh, because Yahweh is love, l John 4:7 -8.
   To know or be known by Yahweh means that you have an intimate relationship with the Creator in spiritual truth. Then you become an extension of Yahweh, as Messiah Yahshua is through Yah's set-apart (Holy) Spirit. You will have the same like-Mind, the same like-Heart and the same like-Character. Being of Yahweh and walking in the Belief/Faith of Yahshua is how you have intimacy with Yah. You will think and have the logic of Yah. You will have Yah's heart, which is pure love. You will behave, act and carry yourself by the standards of Yah's Word.

Not Knowing Yahweh
   Job 18:5-21 tells us of the place for those who do not know Yahweh and so do not walk with Messiah Yahshua:
   Yes, the light of the wicked shall be put out, and the spark of his fire shall not shine. The light shall be dark in his tent, and his lamp above him shall be put out. The steps of his strength shall be straitened (shortened), and his own counsel shall cast him down. For he is cast into a net by his own feet, and he walks upon the toils. A gin shall take him by the heel, and snare shall lay hold on him. A noose is hid for him in the ground, And a trap for him in the way. Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, and shall chase him at his heels. His strength shall be hungered, and calamity shall be ready at his side. The members of his body shall be devoured, yes; the first-born of death shall devour his members. He shall be rooted out of his tent in which he trusted; and he shall be brought to the king of terrors. There shall dwell in his tent that which is none of his; brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation. His roots shall be dried up beneath, and above shall his branch be cut off. His remembrance shall perish from the earth, and he shall have no name in the street. He shall be driven from light into darkness, and chased out of the world. He shall have neither son nor kinsman among his people, nor any remaining where he sojourned. They that come after shall be astonished at his day as they that went before were frightened. Surely such are the dwellings of the unrighteous, and this is the place of him that knows not EL.

Little children, let no man lead you astray: he that does righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous: he that does sin is of the devil; for the devil sins from the beginning. To this end was the Son of Yahweh manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.
