Discovering Hebrew Roots Through Torah Truth

Personalize Don?t Intellectualize

Posted by Messiahs Truth on August 1, 2013 at 3:20 PM

When YHWH gave the Torah to Moses, it was a personal and real experience – not just for Moses – but for the entire community of Israel. Not just for them but for us ‘now’, as well.

 

When we read and study scripture, we must have the right perspective, and the perspective is a personal perspective, “YHWH is actually and directly talking to me!”

 

YHWH is right here where I am, right there where you are. Talking to me; talking to you. Explaining to you what happened to the community of Israel, how to live, how to line up with his Torah, what happens to you when you do and what happens to you when you don’t.

 

If you are truly grafted into Israel through Yahshua, then He is always present, literally, whether you sense His presence or not, whether He manifests to you or not – He is always present.

 

You might call this “relationship theology” because YHWH desires – NO – He DEMANDS and REQUIRES a relationship with you and me.

 

We must be careful not to “intellectualize” Him or get in an “analyzing” mode in regards to Him or His Torah. The focus is having a “relationship” with HIM. Like a father spending time with his children, a husband with his wife, developing a relationship. This is how we ‘get close’ to Elohim.

 

I remember TV shows in the 50’s and 60’s like “Father Knows Best,” “Make Room For Daddy,” “Leave It To Beaver,” and “The Cosby Show.”

 

The focus was on relationship and character development. Isn’t that what our Heavenly Father is doing? He is developing a Hebrew character in us by developing a Holy (set apart) relationship with you and me.


I believe D’varim (Deuteronomy) is the most important book of Moses because the Father is right there, right where you are, speaking to you and me as individuals and as a family, like a family meeting. He is preparing us for a transition from adolescence to adulthood, giving us instruction and commissioning us as we step out into our purpose, our mission; our life quest.

 

And just like a father He continually drives home this one critical thought, “Remember, do not forget what I taught you.” A fathers’ heartfelt words to keep us on track; to keep us on the straight and narrow path. He is teaching us to “Shema,” to listen, pay attention, obey and trust Him.

from your quote," YHWH is right here where I am, right there where you are. Talking to me; talking to you. Explaining to you what happened to the community of Israel, how to live, how to line up with his HOLY SPIRIT, what happens to you when you do and what happens to you when you don?t." Any scholar may read and understand the meaning of Scripture. Since its presentation Torah has continued to be with Israel and shall be so. But how one may even count the pages of Holy Spirit the true Author!

I have the opinion that when it comes to situations like this, your experience indicates that you have become a graduate of the programs you have used to get where you are. The analogy I like to use is military service. When you you first start in your journey in the service you go to boot camp. This is where you learn the basic fundamentals of being in the your particular branch of the military. It's tough. Depending on what branch it can get downright nasty. I was in the Marines. Boot camp was Paris Island South Carolina in the middle of a swamp in June-August 1979. The training at that time included a few psychological challenges that eventually helped creat a completely new personality. I say all of this to say the following. Boot camp is not and should not be forever. You eventually graduate out into the real world. Once there, you're supposed to show how well you can build and grow on the fundamentals that you learned. Can you imagine somebody from my graduating class back in 1979 still down there learning to take a rifle apart and put it back together again? Of course not! The military wouldn't even tolerate such a thing. Unfortunately, outside of that highly structured environment there is often nobody to tell you have learned enough except ourselves and maybe a few close friends or relatives. This I suspect happened to you. You finally realized that this train had taken you as far as it could take you. And you decided to share this experience. It's a very open honest expression of maturity. So in fairness to those who attend TR seminars, these folks are at all different levels of that same process. Hell, some just got off the bus and are in line for their first military haircut! So the only thing I can say that would help your article would be to re-word the title, and re-word it in a way that shows a lot more gratitude. For example. "How I knew I Had Graduated Ftom TR University" or "How TR Helped Me To Grow Into The Man I Am" or something that actually demonstrates the memes you use. The current title is absolutely negative and unfair. It looks like you're already well into giving back to other people and realizing many goals and dreams. So I really don't understand why you chose to take that tilt in your opening title. Curious indeed. Well thank you for taking the time to read this. Nuff Said.

Thank you for writing so clearly and evenhandedly about your experience. You spent a lot of time covering potential objection of zealots before getting to your point, I don't think that was entirely necessary because what you have to say sounds valid, almost inevitable. To most of your negative comments, I would have to attribute them to the format of the event. I am not seeing the point in attending a seminar with 10,000 people seeking a genuine personal growth experience. That is just a performance or a ceremony, at a price tag higher than a Rolling Stones show. There is no way that you are going to get real dialogue or ability to process one-on-one the issues that you are there for. From what I've read, Robbins came out of NLP background and that drew from study of one-on-one therapy. It seems that the business imperatives, reaching the largest audience that would pay the greatest amount, are prioritized over maximizing what any participant gets from the experience. Congratulations on doing what you needed to do to get to a place of no regrets.
