Gave Our Breath Away
With Our Breath Of Life, Man Has Become A Living Soul. (Gen. 2:7)
In The Tanakh 'Soul', Simply Meant, United Whole (Compare Gen. 1:26;2:7)
In Elohim's Image, Man Is Three In One, Entwined (1 Thess. 5:23)
Man's In Our Image, Imago Dei.
Gave Our Breath Away (x1)
Watching Man And, 'Waiting Still Anticipating Love'
Man Ever Hastens To Be A Prodigal Son.
Burning And 'Returning' Like A Pig To A Pig Sty
'Watching In Slow Motion' As I Turn To Him And Sigh,
Take Our 'breath away'
After Noah's Flood, Survivors Had 'Slipped Away.'
Then I Came To Earth, I Called To Man, And Heard Him Say.
'Christ' Claims To Be Yahweh, For This He Must Pay
They Take My Breath Away
I Gave My Life This Way.
My Soul Descends To Hell Three Days To Rescue Souls From Jail
(1 Peter 3:18-22)
Preaching That My Death And Faith Could Achieve Their Bail
Then Returning To My Body My Soul Left Topside.
Fulfilling In Sure Motion The Words I Prophesied
Take my breath away
I'll Take It Back Three Days.
The Bright Knight Rises
New Lyrics By Bj Maxwell
"And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life;
and man became a LIVING SOUL." (Gen. 2:7; KJV)
"Then God said, "Let US make man in OUR image, according to OUR likeness ; and let them rule over the fish
of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps
on the earth." (Gen. 1:26,27)
"Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life ;
and man became a living being. (Gen. 2:7)
"And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and (the-greek) soul and
(the) body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." (1 Thess. 5:23)
"Everything on dry land that had the BREATH OF LIFE in its nostrils died. 23 Every living thing
on the face of the earth was wiped out; men and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds of the
air were wiped from the earth. ONLY NOAH WAS LEFT, AND THOSE WITH HIM in the ark. 24
The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days." (Gen. 7:22-24)
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the
beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made...11 He came to that which
was his own, but his own did not receive him. 12 Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the
right to become children of God--...14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory
of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth....18 No one has ever seen God, but God the One and
Only, who is at the Father's side, has made him known." (Jn. 1:1-3,11,12,14,18)
"For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so
that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but MADE ALIVE
IN THE SPIRIT; 19 in which also HE WENT AND made proclamation TO THE SPIRITS NOW IN PRISON, 20 who once
were disobedient, when the patience of God kept waiting in the days of Noah, during
the construction of the ark, in which a few, that is, EIGHT PERSONS, were brought safely through the
water." (1 Peter 3:18-22)
(Now this expression, "He ascended," what does it mean except that HE ALSO
DESCENDED INTO THE LOWER PARTS OF THE EARTH ? 10 He who descended is Himself also He who ascended far
above all the heavens, so that He might fill all things.) 11 And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to
the building up of the body of Christ ; 13 until we all attain to the unity of the
faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of
the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ." (Ephesians 4:9-13)
The Trinity And The Torah: According
To The Refiners Fire Website (Part II)
From Refiners Fire:
QUESTION: I wish more people knew that YHWH never intended to have two different laws! Can
you suggest any scriptures that tell the Gentiles they are welcome into the covenant but they have to keep His rules? I need verses that prove Yahweh's intent from the very beginning that His Covenant was not just for the Israelites
but for the entire world.
The very first instruction (Torah) that YHWH gives to ALL
MANKIND is to be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it. YHWH does not just
instruct Jews or even just Hebrews to do this. It is for all humanity - Jew and Gentile
alike (Genesis 1:27-32).
But We Don't Necessarily Apply That To Today, In Light Of
The Fact That Jesus And Paul Weren't Single, Had No Biological Children And Paul In Fact Taught That Being Married Is 'An
Affair Of The World' That Typically Takes Ones Focus Off Of God. (1 Cor. 7)
But I'm Glad This Author Has Recognized That This Was Before
There Was Such A Group As Jews.
Maybe He Will One Day Recognize What Else God Said Before
The Torah And Jews.
This Will Come In Handy Later.
Article Forgets What It Just Pointed Out:
After "the Fall" did the sin and death relate just to proto-Hebrew-Semites?
No! ALL of humanity suffered. If all of humanity suffers then all of humanity is
bound by YHWH's instructions. No one gets a free pass. Everything from the prohibition against slaying Cain on forwards relates
to ALL RACES.
Genesis 6-9. All humans sinned. All humans except Noah and family are wiped out in the flood. Obviously all humans were held accountable for
their behavior by YHWH....
Being Responsible For Our Behaviour Doesn't Mean We Are Justified
By It Or That Or That The Torah That Would Come Later Would Be That Standard.
Sin Being Passed On To All Doesn't Prove That 'All' Are Justified
"For if, by the trespass of the one man, death
reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God's abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life
through the one man, Jesus Christ. 18 Consequently, just as the result of one trespass was condemnation for all men, so also the result of one act of righteousness was justification
that brings life for all men. 19
For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one
man the many will be made righteous. 20 The law was added so that the trespass might increase. But where sin increased, grace increased all the more,
21 so that, just as sin reigned in death,
so also grace might reign through righteousness to bring eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 5)
Notice The 'Law Was Added' So That The Sin May Increase Not
Decrease, And Only Through The 'Obedience' And 'One Act Of Righteousness' Of 'The One Man', Christ And Our Reception
(Faith), Are We 'Made Righteous' And Have 'Eternal Life.'
Moving forward, after the flood. Nimrod in Genesis 10 defies
YHWH and YHWH punishes him and all his people. Again, not a Jew or Hebrew among them. Still held accountable - all of them.
YHWH then waits 10 generations for Abram (later Abraham) to be
born. Abram has to give up his idolatry as a member of the nations BEFORE being counted as a Hebrew. He and all his Chaldean
Ur family and friends must journey with him, get circumcised, etc. Even people who want to do business with Abraham - like
the Shechemites - must be circumcised. So, the whole Gentile circumcision thing did not just come up in Acts 15! (For that
you can also read verses in Deuteronomy and Jeremiah chapter 9.)
Today The Goal Is Not To Become A Jew But To Become One Of
Always Accountable But Never Justified By The Torah.
This Behaviour By Abraham Mentioned Above Didn't Justify Him,
Now Did It?
Article: Through Abraham ALL NATIONS are blessed; that is a continuous theme:
But what many Christians forget is WHY they can be blessed through
Abraham who, in a way, was a Gentile too before he was counted as Hebrew. In the NT, we are told over and over again that
Abraham believed YHWH and it was counted to him as righteousness. But, what gets lost is HOW
Abraham believed and HOW his faith was proven - that is be ACTION and OBEDIENCE:
5 because Abraham obeyed me and kept my requirements, my commands, my decrees and my laws."
This Authors Conclusions Are Wrong On So Many Levels That
It's Difficult To Know Where To Begin.
1) This Is Before The Torah.
2) Eleven Chapters Prior To This Is Where Abraham Is Justified
Through Faith Alone.
"He took him outside and said, "Look up at the
heavens and count the stars--if indeed you can count them." Then he said to him, "So shall your offspring be." 6 Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness." (Genesis 15)
Even The Apostle Paul, Sent To the Gentiles, Really 'All'
(Look At Acts 13:46ff), Reiterates.
"It was not through law that Abraham and
his offspring received the promise that he would be heir of the world, but through the righteousness that comes by
faith. 14 For if those who
live by law are heirs, faith has no value and the promise is worthless, 15 because law brings wrath. And where there is no law there is no transgression.
16 Therefore, the promise comes by faith,
so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham's offspring--not only to those who are of the law but
also to those who are of the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all....
The words "it was credited to him" were written
not for him alone, 24 but also
for us, to whom God will credit righteousness--for us who believe in him who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. 25 He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification."
What Is Presently Required Of Jew And Gentile?
"Who is it that overcomes the world? Only
he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God."
(1 Jn. 5:5)
In other words - KEPT MY TORAH! If it's good enough for Abraham, it's good enough for all the nations who get blessed by him on that same
Bj: In Other Words, Abraham Believed God And It Was Counted
Unto Him For Righteousness.
That Is What Abraham Did.
"It was not through law that Abraham and his offspring received
the promise" (Ro. 4)
The Authors At Refiners Fire, Though Claiming To Believe In
Yeshua, Reject The New Testament And Hardly Use It, And Condemn Those That Do.
How Does One Claiming To Be A Believer In Messiah Reject Messiah's
11 But the angel of the Lord called out to him from heaven, "Abraham! Abraham!" "Here I am," he replied. 12 "Do not lay a
hand on the boy," he said. "Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me
your son, your only son." 13 Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took
the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. 14 So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide. And
to this day it is said, "On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided." 15 The angel of the Lord called to Abraham from
heaven a second time 16 and said, "I swear by myself, declares the Lord, that because you have done this and have not withheld
your son, your only son, 17 I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the
sand on the seashore. Your descendants will take possession of the cities of their enemies, 18 and through your offspring
all nations on earth will be blessed, because you have obeyed me."
Unbelievable, This Article Quotes From This Passage But Makes
No Connection Between This And The Sacrifice Of God The Son. (John 3; Hebrews 11)
It Is Through Faith In The Person And Work Of Christ That
Takes Care Of It All And No Works Will Help It Along.
As I Said In Part 1 Of This Critique, Distort Who Christ Is
And What He Came To Do, You Distort The Whole Message.
In The Following Biblical Passages Compare How Who Christ
Is, Affects What He Did And Its Application. (Acts 20:28; Hebrews 1; Colossians 1; Revelation 1)
In Fact Inserting Works For Salvation Is 'Another Gospel.'
That Paul Condemned. (Galatians 1:8,9; 2 Cor. 11)
The Whole Book Of Galatians Is Devoted To Those That Wrongly
Insert Works Into Salvation And Sanctification. (Galatians 3)
And It Doesn't Just Apply To Gentiles:
"After much discussion, Peter got up and addressed
them: "Brothers, you know that some time ago God made a choice among you that the Gentiles might hear from my lips the message
of the gospel and believe. 8
God, who knows the heart, showed that he accepted them by giving the Holy Spirit to them, just as he did to us. 9 He made no distinction between us and them, for he purified their hearts
by faith. 10 Now then, why do
you try to test God by putting on the necks of the disciples a yoke that neither we nor our fathers have been able to bear?
11 No! We believe it is through the grace of our Lord Jesus that we are saved, just as they are." (Acts 15)
Article Goes On:
But what about Moshe? Surely that whole Exodus thing and
those rules were just for the Hebrews? Really? What does the Bible say:
12: 37 .
By "foreigner" YHWH means the uncircumcised. But an "alien" who is circumcised
may eat the Passover, because the same Torah applies to BOTH OF THEM. This statement
"one Torah for Jew and foreigner" or "one Torah for Israelite and foreigner" appears many times. Many nations came out of
Egypt and many nations were bound with Israel, but the covenant comes from YHWH THROUGH
Gosh This Is Too Easy.
How Can One That Says Such Things Ever Have Gotten To First
Base In Their Relationship With God?
Now The Author Is Talking About The Event Preceding The Exodus
And The Giving Of The Law/Torah.
'Foreigner' Is Whomever Wanted To Be Spared From The Angel
Now We Know That Christ Is Our Passover And We Are No Longer
Viewing Messiah From A Distance But Close Up As An Ever Present Reality. (1 Corinthians 5:7)
"Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new
batch without yeast--as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. 8 Therefore let us keep the Festival, not with the old yeast, the yeast
of malice and wickedness, but with bread without yeast, the bread of sincerity and truth." (1 Cor. 5:7)
In Fact Why Observe The Shadow For Justification When We Are
Already Justified By And Because Of The Reality?
Okay, so after Moses and Joshua many prophets come. The monarchy
is established. The Temple is built for YHWH but is it just to be used by Jews? Let's investigate this:
Psalms 86: 8 ...Isaiah 2: 2 ...Isaiah 52:
10 ...Isaiah 56: 7 ...Isaiah 66: 20 Jeremiah 3: 17 Jeremiah 29: 14 ...Ezekiel 5: 5 ...Zephaniah
2: 11 ...Haggai 2: 7 ...Zechariah 8: 23 ....Mark 7: 15
While we are on the subject, why talk of the New Temple and New Jerusalem in Revelation
if it were not relevant to Gentiles?
Shlama w'burkate (Aramaic for "peace and blessings")
Andrew Gabriel Roth
So The Author Draws From The Past And Future To Apply It To
The Present But Neglects The Real Message In These Examples.
The Message Of The Past Was That Before Torah, Abraham Was
Justified By Faith Alone. (Genesis 15; Romans 4; Galatians 3; Romans 3), And This Principle Supercedes Any Requirements Peculiar
To The Time (Hebrews 11), And The Message He Just Referred To Is About A Future Millenial Reign Of Israel On Earth, And These
Gentiles Are Those That Did Not Believe In Messiah In This Present Age.
Due To The Rejection Of Messiah By Israel, Presently All Are
On The Same Level And Only By Faith In Christ Are We Justified. (Romans 11:24-32)
And Unless We Want To Assume That Gentiles Including The Body
Of Christ Are Outside The Gates Trying To Get In, We Must Conclude That These Are 'Nations' In The End, While We Are Reigning
With The Head Of The Body In Heaven.
Since When Do We Presently Come To God According To Our National
Whosoever Will Is The Present Dispensation.
"Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert,
so the Son of Man must be lifted up, 15
that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life. 16
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish
but have eternal life. 17 For
God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands
condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son." (John 3:14-18)
