If you are a Gentile, you may have a little knowledge already, but you should re-ground yourself by starting with Acts 15. Then do as it says, and study the writings of Mosheh, the Torah (Ten Commandments). Read all of Exodus 20, Lev. 19, Lev. 23, then Deut. 16, understanding that you are about to enter into a Covenant with your Creator, hYhy. When you know and understand how you are to live, you must be immersed in water as your 'circumcision'. Your 'Husband' doesn't wish to dwell in the vessel of your body before you have washed, and this immersion signifies the death of your mind of the flesh, the washing away of your sins by your trust in Rabbi OWYhy's death which covers your sins against Torah, and the resurrection in kind with OWYhy, so you will obey the Torah. This is only the beginning.
1. Pronounce your belief, "I believe Rabbi OWYhy (Yahushua, Yahusha) of Nazareth is the Mashiach, and that He raised from the dead 3 days and 3 nights after His execution for my past sins."
2. "OWYhy please save me."
3. Going under the water, think of your mind of the flesh "dying", no longer controlling your actions against Torah. Your sins are left behind you, lifted from you, and you are now a "new creature". The "old person" is now dead.
4. Coming up, you have committed to the Covenant: to obey OWYht, hold to His Testimony, and you will show Him you love Him by observing the Torah. Having obeyed Him, you will now receive the promise of the New Covenant: His Spirit, which will write His Commandments on your heart and mind, enabling you to love them and obey them.
This is the way you give yourself to the Bridegroom. As a woman will bath after her period of uncleanness before contact with her husband, so we wash away our uncleanness (past sins), and COVENANT to obey our Husband. We are His virgin bride! The unrepentant and the very young cannot be immersed, because they have not been convicted of their sinfulness. Next, you need your "gift", that which you are to use to serve the Body with. This is received by an elder laying hands upon you and reciting the priestly blessing (Num. 6:22-27). This must be performed by an elder who knows what the Covenant is! At Acts 9:17, Shaul had the hands of Ananias placed upon him before immersion. You can receive your "anointing" without an elder, but eventually you should submit to the laying on of the hands when you encounter an elder. The "power" comes from OWYhy, not the brother; the Ruach ha Qodesh is given to those who obey Him (Acts 5:32). As I said, the MYSTERY of the Kingdom that we all hope to be partakers of is revealed in all the parables. One of the most misunderstood parables speaks about how OWYhy will "go away on a journey", and entrusts His property to His servants. At Mattit Yahu 25:14-46, the parable of the "talents", our Rabbi illustrates Himself as a man who went away for a long time, and returned to see what his servants had done with the various "talents" He had left them in charge of. According to their abilities, each servant was given 5, 2, or 1 talent each. The "talents" represent the number of Torah-observant people, and the objective was to produce more by the time the Master returned to "settle accounts". (It's not about "money", but PEOPLE). If we go through life without "investing" in others the Word of Life, but rather "bury" the "talent", we produce no growth in those around us, and we are as a dead branch ourselves.
TEN MINAS The "talents" are one illustration, and at Luke 19:11-27, a similar parable is given. Again, "A man of noble birth went to a distant country to have himself appointed king, and then to return." Before leaving, this man gave ten (the 10 virgins?) of his servants a mina each, and told them to put the "money" to work, until he returned. While he was away, the servants "invested" such that one gained 10 more, another 5; but one of them just wrapped up his mina and hid it. In other words, one gained 10 converts, another 5, and the other NONE. While he was away, the man heard that the "subjects" he had left (all the people of the Earth) proclaimed "We don't want this man to be OUR king." Upon his return, the new King of the Universe proclaimed, "But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them ~ bring them here and kill them in front of me." That's exactly what will happen to the ""weeds" when He returns as a roaring Lion. You had better get busy, my friend, because the servant who hid his "mina" lost his "mina", and was not found to be worthy of his Ruler any longer. If we are not spreading the "seed" (Torah, and the message of the Kingdom), then we have not understood that it is US, not the preachers, who must be actively engaged in reaching those around us. "Unless you repent, you too will all likewise perish." Luke 13:3. Why people will perish is clearly explained at 2Thess. 2. The return of our Sovereign OWYhy ha Mashiach will not come until the rebellion occurs, and the man of lawlessness is revealed. The rebellion is the Nazarene sect, exposing the lie; the whole world is in the power of lawlessness, and religious merchants have taught lawlessness for centuries. We rebel against the lie, and the work of Shatan
"displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the Truth, and so be saved. For this reason, hYhy sends them a powerful delusion, so that they will believe the LIE, and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the Truth, but have delighted in lawlessness." The "lie" is clearly lawlessness, and it is everywhere taught that "legalism" is evil. How amazing, because this is the strong delusion. The "delusion" is taught by twisting Paul's writings, EVERYTIME! Peter warned us of those who use Paul's writings to support their error: "Just as our dear brother Paul also wrote to you with the wisdom that hYhy gave him; he writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people DISTORT, as they do the other Writings, to their own destruction. Therefore, dear friends, since you already know this, BE ON YOUR GUARD, so that you may not be carried away by the error of lawless men, and fall from your secure position."~ 2Pet. 3:15-17. At Luke 8:11,12, the parable of the Sower, the Torah is sown by the Master of the harvest: "The seed is the Word of hYhy." The adversary, Shatan, steals the Word from people's hearts, so they will not believe and obey, and so be saved. Shatan's messengers are disguised, masquerading as messengers of righteousness. Be careful how you listen! We must produce a crop, by spreading the true seed, not the seed of weeds. Psalm 119:152 says, "Long ago, I learned from your statutes that you established them to last FOREVER." 119:160 says "All your words are TRUE; ALL your righteous LAWS ARE ETERNAL." With David, we who love the Torah say, "Streams of tears flow from my eyes, for your LAW is NOT obeyed." 119:136. He's not talking about the CEREMONIAL LAW, but the MORAL LAW. That's why Paul is not properly understood.
History was "revised" over and over, making it appear that "Christianity" was "founded" by OWYhl. But, in truth, He founded the sect of the Nazarenes, and these remained in the true faith. Pursued by the "dragon", this ""woman" had to endure many severe trials.

Plainly affection is an emotion, but it's likewise much more than that. Among the key choices you face in each encounter is the choice to draw close or avoid. You are able to attempt to connect with individuals, or you are able to retreat from them. You are able to absorb yourself in your day's work, or you are able to dillydally. You may approach any individual, place, or thing with the aim to connect, or you may stay distant.
