Yeshua was a rabbi; a student and teacher of the Pentateuch (Torah). In the New Testament Yeshua time and again teaches lessons from the original five books of Moses. He particularly quotes Deuteronomy on several occasions. Yeshua knew the law of God as relayed to Moses. From that structure he grew into the teacher that he was; one who took the written word and made it the living word.
He taught all of us that the Sabbath was made for man and not man for the Sabbath. He took the promises of God in the Pentateuch and made them real. Yeshuaserved all of us by relaying the truth and for that he was persecuted; and in the face of persecution shared Divine love. He was a role model for all of us and it was his ‘spirit’ that gave us salvation. Not the man, the spirit.
When you worship the man you are insulting God. When you dwell on the blood of Jesus instead of the love of Jesus you have completely missed the point. Christ made the gospel for the common man. He took it from the priests and monarchs and brought it down to earth. He felt the touch of the man on his garment who desired to be healed.
He sat down and ate with Matthew, the hatedtax collector, and was chastised for doing so by his disciples. He spoke in the language of the money changers at the temple. He was real and focused on ALL of us knowing that the Kingdom of God is within each and every one of us. He showed us God is our source and NOT humankind.
Yeshua taught form the heart and the inner well-being of Divine love. He gave of himself selflessly and lifted people up. He taught us how to be fishers of humankind; how to lead by sharing Divine love with all of Creation. He taught us how to respect life and live in Divine love everlasting!
His message of love in the face of all ego and evil has lasted for thousands of years. Feel the spirit of Christ within you guiding you to the Spirit of God. Bridge the gap from ego to God. Transform your life by accepting the spirit of Christ within you to know the Spirit of God, just as Yeshua did. Stop worshipping the man and live in loving God. Peace be with you. Be ye therefore perfect! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
