Can two walk YACHAD, except they be YA'AD?
The Talmidim of Mashiyach are YACHAD (united together) and called in his Name to live for and advance the Kingdom of Elohim. We grow from faith to faith, our strength comes from Mashiyach in the Hope of Glory. We are YACHAD acting as one in Mashiyach wherein is found faithfulness, love, mercy and the Righteous Attributes as revealed in Spirit and in Truth.
"And you shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel. And Moshe came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which YHWH commanded him. And all the people answered YACHAD (together), and said, All that YHWH has spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto YHWH."
"Teach me thy way, O YHWH; I will walk in your truth:
YACHAD (unite) my heart to fear your name."
"And Abraham took the wood of the burnt offering, and laid it upon Isaac his son;
and he took the fire in his hand, and a knife;
and they went both of them YACHAD (together)."
Our calling is to fulfill the mandate of Mashiyach for the Common Good of each soul,
and see that The Kingdom of Elohim is established as YHWH directed in His Torah.
And Y'shua said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back,
is fit for the kingdom of Elohim. After these things the Master appointed other seventy also,
and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither He himself would come.
Therefore said He unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few:
pray ye therefore the Master of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.
The Kingdom of Mashiyach is expressed through Righteous Servanthood
"Y'shua called them unto him, and said,
"You know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them,
and they that are great exercise authority upon them.
But it will not be so among you: but whoever will be great among you,
let him be your servant; And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:
Even as the Son of man came not to be served, but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many."
The fallen religious systems of this world attempt to portray the Kingdom of Mashiyach according to mutually accepted traditions, but each religious system is plagued with corruption and self serving agendas. The Kingdom of Mashiyach is based on making a covenant with YHWH that includes everyone, none are left on the outside.
Since ancient days Chemarim (black robed priests) cling to positions of power in churches, synagogues and mosques where they administer religion to replace to the Kingdom of Elohim. Black robed priests originated in Babylon, they are part of a totalitarian doctrinal dictatorships. The Black Robed are trained to "LORD it over the sheep", religious tradition is their highest authority, their gods. The prototype of Babylon has found its way into every institution on earth, except the Kingdom of Elohim. Religious authority is bogus, righteousness, truth and accountability to the Word of YHWH and His Torah are the requirement of all those who walk with Mashiyach.
"I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem;
and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, and the name of the Chemarim with the priests;
And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and them that worship and that swear by YHWH, and that swear by Malcham; (the King).
Each founder of religious denominations have given themselves the authority to interpret the Bible and establish traditions which oppose the Word of YHWH and bring disunity with YHWH and man. Unity within the Kingdom of Elohim is based solely upon the authority of the Word of YHWH, we are strictly warned in the Scriptures to not but the authority of man above YHWH.
"A curse on the person who trusts in humans, who relies on merely human strength,
whose heart turns away from YHWH."
"All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house. But you art cast out of your grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcass trodden under feet. You shall not be joined with them in burial, because you have destroyed your land, and slain your people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned. Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities. For I will rise up against them, says YHWH of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, says YHWH."
Isaiah 14: 18-22
"They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with iniquity.
The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire,
and the prophets thereof divine for money:
yet will they lean upon YHWH, and say, is not YHWH among us?
No evil can come upon us."
Micah 3:10, 11
Religion has given itself the authority to govern the lives of its adherents, the authority of religion is only what people are willing to give it. The Kingdom of Elohim is Yachad, each soul in the Kingdom has unique greatness and each one has authority given them by the Ruach HaKodesh and the Word of YHWH. The Kingdom of Elohim recognizes that greatness in each one comes from YHWH, the giver of Life. The life of each soul is regarded as holy unto YHWH. Babylon interprets the value of each soul based on the fallen material, intellectual or spiritual worlds, people are "resources", friends or enemies, and considered as productive or unproductive commodities.
Mashiyach is the only One who is able to break the curses of Babylon
"We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her,
and let us go every one into his own country:
for her judgment reaches unto heaven,
and is lifted up even to the skies."
Babylon is broken when we come to Mashiyach and walk in Torah, as we apply His authority to our lives we are joined with Him Yachad in the Kingdom of Elohim. Our mandate is to speak His truth in love and help to release those who are captive to the Chemarims (black robed priests). The religious hierarchical tyrannies have usurped authority for themselves that rightly belongs to YHWH and His Mashiyach, and we know that we must be willing to fight for our freedom.
The YACHAD depicts a team of mutually invested, co-operative, unique individuals operating within the framework of the Righteous Instruction of Torah, thus living out common goals of the Kingdom of Mashiyach. For many souls who are captives of religion, becoming Yachad with Mashiyach and His people is defined by circumstance or it is an unattainable idealism. Religion is fraught with conflicts and curses that cheapens life and the unity of the body, but religious souls can always look to others who are "worse off" than they to affirm their blessings in Babylon. The only resolve that will bring us Yachad is for each one to decisively come out of religion and take the Yoke (Kingdom) of Elohim upon us. The Word of YHWH must surpass all earthly authorities, we must be eager as children to serve our common Father and Redeemer.
Babylon forces all of the issues of what it means to walk Yachad in Mashiyach and each other. Those who seek the common good are able to focus on resolving conflicts based on the authority of the Word of YHWH. The adversary tries to help us become preoccupied with matters of "personality" or "qualifications" in the team, rather than seeking Righteousness and the Goal of Mashiyach. Each soul is able to make important contributions to the team, in an timely and effective manner, Mashiyach "qualifies" His people by endowing each one with greatness. All the challenges we individually face are much better resolved as a team, to do this we each need to be accepted as equals in the "household of faith". The benefits of team work are manifold especially as Torah requires that we attain to the designation as a Kedoshim (holy people). Serving our Father YHWH and each other and recognizing each other as equals provides reciprocal blessings. I pray that the body of Mashiyach in each community where we live will grow together and be strengthened in unity, our lives in Mashiyach united together give powerful testimony to YHWH and His Mashiyach.
"Then said Pilate unto him, You will not speak to me? Don't you know that I have power to crucify you,
and have power to release you? Yeshua answered, you could have no power at all against me,
except it were given to you from above: therefore he that delivered me unto you has the greater sin."
"For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Adon Yeshua Mashiyach,
Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory,
to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
That Mashiyach may dwell in your hearts by faith;
that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth,
and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Mashiyach,
which surpasses knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of Elohim."
YHWH be with you,
Baruch Ben Daniel
