DANGEROUS HISTORICAL LINGUISTIC CHANGES
The meanings of words can mean something different than what we have been told.
Grace, means that you understand the revelation of what the intended meaning is. Paul the apostle had the grace of the revelation to be able to understand it. He taught many people but not everyone understood him. Sometimes he spoke in parables to see who was listening. He said, "I speak to the mature/perfect, not as unto babes." There are face value concepts/literal and there are figurative types of speech in metaphors, similes, parables and analogies. Higher forms of symbolism are not often grasped by the unlearned or untaught.
We know from Peter's writings that "many unlearned people twisted Paul's meanings and to their own destruction". We would not want to twist the meaning of the words that would cause others to stumble. Can you picture twisting someone's legs up like a pretzel? They would not be able to stand nor walk the walk. They could not run the race either. This is why we must teach the truth so that they can stand, walk and run the race for themselves.
Unfortunately, many teachers learn incorrectly from others and it causes a disconnect in thinking. So we will go over some of the words that are currently used today that have been taught a different concept attached to these words. There is a big difference when a word is used to have another meaning to it. This is the binding and the loosing of concepts. When you tell someone an idiom or expression such as, "you are on fire!" The unlearned one may not understand the meaning and may think that he is literally on fire rather than doing well. To be able to explain these concepts helps to untangle confusion and make the connections straight and clean so that one can operate functionally.
The teacher must always realize that a child or someone just learning may not understand symbolism and that is why a teacher is there to help. But sometimes, the teacher is teaching twisted teaching, which is called iniquity. Not all teachers know that they are teaching incorrectly. Some do, but some do not because they are decieved. When a person is deceived, they don't know that they are. This is why discussion, tests or confrontation in love is important to set the person straight so that they can stop being tormented. Chaos is torment and we do not want to be in torment.
"The law of the LORD is good." His teachings/Torah, His commandments are for our benefit to love Him and love one another. How do we show love to one another? We don't bear false witness and lie about others, we don't kill, steal or commit adultery etc. These are written in the Ten commandments and of the two greatest commandments all of the law and the prophets hang on those two. To Love God and love people means that you would not sin against them.
Have you sinned against people who were trying to teach/feed you? Have you rejected the meal of instructions and decided that you would rather stay with what you are full of and not eat?
Forgiveness is teaching another how to treat us. It is teaching another the truth for their deficit of not knowing the truth. When we "forgive" our brother 70 x 7 it is teaching them over and over until they understand the truth. It is not turning a blind eye to their sin and forgetting about it. That is what a hireling would do. A real teacher is one who purposely is involved to seeing their disciple fed and nourished. It is not letting the new learner with the deficit run wild and do whatever they want.
To be a true disciple, one must have a teacher and be disciplined in order to learn. Many are self taught yes, but many go astray because of a lack of instruction. Are you accountable with others who instruct you? Or are you not accountable with others because you already know everything? Pride comes before a fall. If we are humble that means that we know we don't know everything and we will submit to correction and the multitude of counselors who walk in the truth and not in the lies.
Does a multitude mean that they cannot all be wrong? No. We know that "many are called, but few are chosen". "Many go the broad way and few choose the narrow path". Would that give you any indication that if many are doing it, that we who are called to be set apart from "the world's system" should check ourselves to see if we should be doing what the world is doing? Or are we "the world"? Do you do the same things that "the world" does? Do you celebrate the same holidays that are not actually holy days but are man's ideas? Do you know why our Creator gave his set apart days for the bride to keep? Who is the bride? Is she supposed to prepare herself for her groom? What are those holy set apart days good for? Will we be doing them in heaven? What are those holy/set apart days? Passover, (is not Easter) Feast of first fruits (Resurrection Day), The marriage supper of the lamb/Feast of trumpets, Feast of weeks/ Shavout/Pentecost (giving of the Ten commandments/& when the Spirit came to the disciples in the upper room), Sukkot/booths,Fall/(not Christmas, nor in December), The Sabbath. (not the weekend, but the seventh day memorial of rest).
Did you know that our Creator established these things before the foundation of the world? They are His holy, set apart feasts and they are about relationships and honoring Him if we choose to learn them. They are "shadows of things to come." In history, Constantine the Roman Emperor changed and re-labeled these because he wanted to get the people and bring them together pagan, gentiles and the religious. He did away with all things Hebrew. He replaced YHWH's feasts.
We know that Christ was our sacrifice for Passover and He said to follow Him. Paul said "to pick up our cross daily." Does that sound like a sacrifice to you? Who is supposed to be making this symbolic sacrifice so that others can eat and live? Just like we eat foods for the body, we too need spiritual food to live. "Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of YHWH."
Paul the apostle had said that "You have had teachers but not many of you have had fathers." He said that he would present them, the church as a chaste bride to the groom. The groom was not him. Sometimes the pastors or leaders think that they are the groom or vice versa the people think that the pastors are the head. The pastors or leaders are a part of the body. There are other spiritual gifts of teachers, prophets, evangelists and apostles. This is referred to as the five fold ministry.
If our children kept hitting their head on a low chandelier we would do a few things to stop the kid from injuring himself. Either we would remind the kid to remember to watch out for the low hanging chandelier, or eventually, put a table under it or raise the chandelier. If we never did anything and the kid would constantly be injured and forget because he just was not paying attention and he did not learn, then it would be very heart breaking to watch him constantly stumble about because he was not paying attention and constantly forgetting. It is the same thing when you disciple someone. You teach, discipline them and you "forgive them" for their not knowing by reminding them or constantly teaching them. Forgiveness is not to cut them slack and let them off but it is instruction in righteousness / correction for their error to give them help until they can make the corrections themselves.
Here is another example that I had heard said. If you give a toddler a metal fork and he starts to go towards the electrical outlet with it then you stop him and pull him away from getting electrocuted. Then you sit the toddler down at the dinner table and show him how to use his fork. You say, "This is a fork, you stab the meat and vegetables with it and then you put the food in your mouth with your fork." This is instruction and that was "forgiving the child for his ignorance" and shedding light/instruction on what it is intended for. For giving him life not death.
Sin means -to miss the intended target. It is an archery term. To miss the bull's eye/mark of the high calling of God in Christ. When we fail, we are "missing the mark". We are not called to keep failin! Can you imagine how difficult it would be if we failed all the time? We are called to understand and grow up unto all things. To be perfect means to be mature, fully grown. That is what the Father wants for all of us. To prosper and be in health and to be blessed not cursed.
Yahuwsha said that "in the beginning one man was made for one woman for life". But "many are marrying and given in marriage as in the days of Noah" and pastors are marrying divorced people in ceremonies. Sometimes many times over. That is adultery. Mat 5:32 "But I say to you that whoever divorces his wife for any reason except sexual immorality[upon seeing that she was not a virgin on the wedding night/fornication prior to marriage] causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a woman who is divorced commits adultery. What happened to the marriage vows? Do vows really matter? Is divorce an option made for man to remarry? No. Remarriage is not an option unless the other spouse dies.
Num 30:1 Then Moses spoke to the heads of the tribes concerning the children of Israel, saying, "This is the thing which the LORD has commanded:
Num 30:2 "If a man makes a vow to the LORD, or swears an oath to bind himself by some agreement, he shall not break his word; he shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth.
Num 30:9 "Also any vow of a widow or a divorced woman, by which she has bound herself, shall stand against her.
Num 30:15 "But if he does make them void after he has heard them, then he shall bear her guilt."
Num 30:16 These are the statutes which the LORD commanded Moses, between a man and his wife, and between a father and his daughter in her youth in her father's house.
Isa 53:4 Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows Yet we esteemed Him stricken,Smitten by God, and afflicted.
Isa 53:5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities;The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.
Isa 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way;And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
Isa 53:7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, And as a sheep before its shearers is silent, So He opened not His mouth.
Isa 53:8 He was taken from prison and from judgment, And who will declare His generation?For He was cut off from the land of the living; For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
Isa 53:9 And they made His grave with the wicked-But with the rich at His death, Because He had done no violence, Nor was any deceit in His mouth.
Isa 53:10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin,He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, And the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand.
Isa 53:11 He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many, For He shall bear their iniquities.
Isa 53:12 Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, And He shall divide the spoil with the strong, Because He poured out His soul unto death, And He was numbered with the transgressors, And He bore the sin of many, And made intercession for the transgressors.
"So should we continue in sin so that grace may abound? Certainly Not! "
Heb 10:26 For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,
Heb 10:27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.
Heb 10:28 Anyone who has rejected Moses' law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
Heb 10:29 Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace?
Heb 10:30 For we know Him who said, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,"[fn] says the Lord.[fn] And again, "The LORD will judge His people."[fn]
Heb 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
Heb 10:32 But recall the former days in which, after you were illuminated, you endured a great struggle with sufferings:
Heb 10:33 partly while you were made a spectacle both by reproaches and tribulations, and partly while you became companions of those who were so treated;
Heb 10:34 for you had compassion on me in my chains, and joyfully accepted the plundering of your goods, knowing that you have a better and an enduring possession for yourselves in heaven.[fn]
Heb 10:35 Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward.
Heb 10:36 For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise:
Heb 10:37 "For yet a little while, And He who is coming will come and will not tarry.
Heb 10:38 Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him."
Heb 10:39But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul.
Vows made matter. The recompense of broken vows cause damage as many experience, but the vow is "until death do us part". "Many perish for lack of knowledge". "Sin pays wages of death". "This is why many sleep/die in the churches" because people minimize disobedience. This is why we do not want to sin because sin causes death. "To obey is better than sacrifice. I have come to do your will oh LORD." We are to follow Him. We are to "obey His commandments". "When we are in Him, we have life, but if we disobey, we are not in HIM". We have stepped out of His covering. We have been led on another path by strangers/hirelings. "We have not heard His voice, but harkened to a stranger."
Earth, according to the bible definition we see here below, earth is land. It is not sea, as sea is sea. Nor is "earth" sky. Sky is sky. Earth is land, level, a plane, (not tilted at a 23.4 degree axis like we were told in science). History shows that our ancestors knew the earth was land/level and not a ball/globe. There is the circle of the heavens as the stars, sun and moon actually move and we do not. Remember that the Heavens and Earth were made first and the sun, moon and stars were made on the 4th day. We do not spin nor move. What does it say in the bible?

All meanings of words come with understanding and when we fully understand we will be mature/perfect, ripe for the plucking/eating. When we see Him, we shall be like Him. We are called to walk in His character and function properly here on earth.
