Walking in the spirit is a term we use to identify our active lives utilizing the benefits of having access to the Holy Spirit. The giving of the Torah and the Holy Spirit was celebrated with a Feast Day during this past week of Shavuot 2015 (May 23 through May30). The Torah and Holy Spirit are the tools upon which we depend on YHWH to add strength in our lives. We experience the anticipation of how YHWH will bless us, after counting the omer for forty-nine days. The Feast of Weeks festival (also known as Counting the Omer) is best described as TRUSTING FAITHFUL to show up at His appointed time to endow you with a gift.
What does it mean to TRUST FAITHFUL (who is YHWH) ? The term ‘trust faithful,’ is used as a metaphoric representation of YHWH. It describes why you should believe; after all, how can you not “TRUST FAITHFUL.” Immediately following the giving of the gift of spiritual and physical strength, wisdom, knowledge or understanding from YHWH, we step into the next 70 days of testing, Counting and depending only upon YHWH’s Torah, His word, is the premise of the meditations located in Psalm 119. King David encourages himself in the word of the Lord. In the 119th Psalm , in its entirety, King David reveals how to persevere in deciding to TRUST FAITHFUL. We will trust FAITHFUL despite all odds.
The next realm of our spiritual walk“ercises” is the 70 day Test. The previous exercises surrounded “The Taming of the Tongue for 30 days recently. A generous amount of attention was given to the most lethal weapon we have spiritually, our mouths. We completed this challenge through the 49 day omer count, where we search our hearts for our own obstacles giving an offering up for renewal each day before Adonai. The honest introspection of our character and the conduct we exemplify is sharpened to rehearse with Him. We are in a rehearsal. Everything we do links with the original thought from Adonai in the giving of the Torah. He speaks once and listens to the ricochet of His commands operating throughout the community of Torah observant believers. The believer puts their staff, the messengers (angels) to work in order to carry out the word of Adonai, according to the principles.
The Holy Spirit is even more intense when you are walking in the blessings of observing the Torah. The gathering of the lost sheep back to the Torah, means many are filled with the experience of the Holy Spirit by way of chanting practices adopted over the years to bring a sense of comfort to man confirming the actual receipt of the Holy Spirit. When we look down through history we will begin to recognize what appeared to be a phenomenon, when really it is a way to confirm if YHWH has given you the gift. The scripture Act 2:38 dictates that each person will receive the gift freely and it reads, “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.” There are no additional requirements listed here in order to receive the Holy Spirit. What I know is the interpretation of the scripture from a Greek perspective moves you to believe there were babblings, but there is no record of language that could not be interpreted, which imposes an additional level of experience that is outside of YHWH’s order present in today’s acclaims to having the Holy Spirit by speaking in tongues.
Man required an outward quality assurance flag and someone decided that speaking in babblings was an equivalent to the first experience. In a closer review of Acts the 2nd chapter, it clearly reads that the language was able to be understood from the beginning and therefore anything less, is just that less [Acts 2: 1-12, reads as follows in the Complete Jewish Bible, “The festival of Shavu‘ot arrived, and the believers all gathered together in one place. 2 Suddenly there came a sound from the sky like the roar of a violent wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 Then they saw what looked like tongues of fire, which separated and came to rest on each one of them. 4 They were all filled with the Ruach HaKodesh and began to talk in different languages, as the Spirit enabled them to speak. 5 Now there were staying in Yerushalayim religious Jews from every nation under heaven. 6 When they heard this sound, a crowd gathered; they were confused, because each one heard the believers speaking in his own language. 7 Totally amazed, they asked, “How is this possible? Aren’t all these people who are speaking from the Galil? 8 How is it that we hear them speaking in our native languages? 9 We are Parthians, Medes, Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Y’hudah, Cappadocia, Pontus, Asia, 10 Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt, the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome; 11 Jews by birth and proselytes; Jews from Crete and from Arabia. . . ! How is it that we hear them speaking in our own languages about the great things God has done?” 12 Amazed and confused, they all went on asking each other, “What can this mean?”
Amazingly enough, we are still asking the same questions as were asked in the 1st century. God is getting the glory with every word uttered because there is someone who understands and therefore can interpret the language. This was the setting from the beginning orchestrated by YHWH, and likewise it should be the same with us. When we look at the many languages that were represented, the key to this event is that an interpreter was present then, and should be going forward. If there is no interpreter of the activities of the tongues then it is no longer able to communicate the glory which belongs to YHWH. Words are the ‘alef and tav,’ where it concerns YHWH. There is no blessing in babblings and there never has been. The tongues of the Holy Spirit in public places demand an able interpreter. The confusion imposed by babblings is not the premise of gaining YHWH’s Holy Spirit. Therefore, after careful deductive reasoning, YHWH never imposed confusion with the miracle of tongues. The mystery of tongues was found in their question of how it could be that one who is unlearned of their language, can swiftly speak to them where each visitor understood them?
The key term today is ‘understanding direction,” there is literally zero understanding throughout the church about the gift of tongues. While it did sustain us through these years, it is YHWH’s will that we continue to study and go even deeper.
Loving you enough to share the truth,
