as i ready myself to say the things that my heart is moving me to say here my fingers softly touch my macs keyboard with a noticeable tremor.
i shake because i know by my past efforts in this media i am going to more likely then not make a unreadable overly complex mess of what i can now see in my heart as a simple and clear yet very important point of view on a subject that is by now many thousands of years old-
but i shall do so anyway no matter the mess that may come from my effort.
the gift of our perpetual innocents that is gained by the ongoing mercy and willful "forgetfulness" that Our Father YAHWEH loving extended to all us faithful and committed practitioners of Our Savior Brother Yesh'wa Messiahs New Covenant and its One Single Commandment that He Himself handed down to us via His disciples and apostles starting 2012 or so years ago:
"LOVE EACH OTHER AS I LOVE YOU".
below is Jeremiahs Prophecy on the subject:
31 "The day is coming," says the LORD, "when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and Judah.
32 This covenant will not be like the one I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand and brought them out of the land of Egypt. They broke that covenant, though I loved them as a husband loves his wife," says the LORD.
33 "But this is the new covenant I will make with the people of Israel on that day," says the LORD. "I will put my instructions deep within them, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.
34 And they will not need to teach their neighbors, nor will they need to teach their relatives, saying, 'You should know the LORD.' For everyone, from the least to the greatest, will know me already," says the LORD. "And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins."
(Jeremiah 31, NLT, rse).
i know that the profession religious will take issue with this as being in direct conflict of what many of them see as " there job alone" to proffer forgives and or to offer the sacraments attached by there faith systems beliefs that lead to the forgiveness of personal / congenital sin states.
however as Our Father YAHWEH clearly says through Jeremiahs above noted Prophecy
" first comes the New Covenant and its ONE STATED OBLIGATION " Love each other as I love You" that being our part of The Deal and then afterwords comes Our Fathers FORGETFULNESS and Never Ending Mercy as long as we practice Never Ending Love as Our Savior Brother Loves us.
i do recall the wine and the matzo of His Last Sadder when He gave to us His New Covenant as being His Body that will soon be broken for us all and His Innocent Blood that will soon be spilled for us so that our sin could be forgiven that if that bit had not been done as horrifically and gruesomely as it was done then we would have no New Covenant to regain our often lost innocent from when we need to regain it;
as often as we may ever need to;
and that when we do do those things we are to REMEMBERING HIM and not noses nor the old long ended covenant.
however it feels important for me to say that no one else need be in the room when we do as He Said to eat His Body and Drink His Holy Blood -
and no priest is needed to made those elements of bread and wine / what ever-whatever to become into His Body and Blood and most perfect all around food available to our physical bodies as we live our spiritual life.
only our faith is required for that to happen.
i look foreword to any and all commentary and replies that this posting may bring.
