Worship is an action. A way of life. We can not worship more than one Alohym (God) but too many people try anyway. Often many people that have chosen their own path and refuse to accept there is only one way to force their beliefs on, us, the children of YHWH because they (people that have chosen their own path or the children of the world) want to make everything to come under their control. You can feel the fierceness of the pressure to conform to them, and it is a dysfunctional pressure. Nothing good comes from this action. Conforming to someone’s way of doing things is the worship of this person. We are told in the first and second commandments to only worship YHWH.
Since all people are trained to believe salvation comes from only worshiping in the churches and other religious organizations or missions, we do not make the connection that we worship YHWH as individuals in everyday living. Reading scripture is essential, listening to scripture is essential but living out the scriptures is most important. Since the scriptures are interpreted by non-believers in YHWH there are words and meanings that do not reflect the real instruction. Many instructions from YHWH are twisted and watered down to keep the children of YHWH in sin.
Worship is specifically what we say, think, and do. Because the “do” is an action the do is controlled by what we think and what we say reveals what we think in our hearts and minds also know as the seat of consciousness. Since most people fail to say what they mean it shows an increase in arguments and confusion because people say one thing but think another. YHWH tells us to be exact in our words, so we do not defraud (cheat, lie, or manipulate) people. Since being exact in words means, to be honest, we speak what is in our hearts. We speak with wisdom and that means we truthfully speak with a filter of course. I know people that believe that is fine to speak to anyone anyway they want and especially if it is a so-called loved one. However, we need to speak to people with the care and wisdom of the word of YHWH.
Proverbs 23:7 KJV – For as he thinks in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, say he to you; but his heart is not with thee.
I have experienced this firsthand with people who pretended to help and although I told them I cannot pay they insisted they wanted to help and said, “no problem, I want to help.” Eventually, I realized they had upspoken assumptions of unreasonable amounts that they felt I owed them even when only the smallest amount of income was coming in, they wanted a large payment upfront without regard to me the person that needed the income. So, they did not want to help but were seeking ways to cheat me out of money.
Since we speak in worship as in speaking or saying praise when we do this in religious practices it is the worship of something or someone else other than our Elohim. The “do” in religion would be religious rituals like setting up trees during the pagan Christmas season or like today the pagan fourth of you lie (July 4) cookouts are burning of incense, food abominations grilled, to the spirits that they worship. When we take part in this ritual, we are saying we agree. Therefore, we worship our Alohym by not breaking the First and Second commandments when we do not participate. We also recognize our people were still in slavery at that time. Why would we celebrate freedom, and we were still slaves? Also, the senior slaves were blown up as fireworks for the slave masters. Horrible history and each year they celebrate these acts. Again, no way can that be associated with our Alohym.
When we think of how to apply the YARAH to our lives daily and focus on how to speak with the salt of the word of YARAH we are in worship. We realize double-mindedness requires sin. I think over the number of times people have allowed in pagan practices and shut out scripture calling it religious. If you understand religion, you know the pagan practice is religion. People are shutting out YARAH because the Ruach of YAH and the Ruach-Ra will not dwell in the same place, so one must go. The world has chosen Ruach-Ra.
Mattithyahu (Matthew) 15:8 BSB – These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from Me. KJV- This people draw nigh unto me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. (Their minds and actions.)
Ezekiel 33:31 KJV – And they come unto YHWH as the people come, and they sit before YHWH as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth, they shew much love, but their heart goes after their covetousness.
Once I began to understand what was happening, I had to make a choice to water down my knowledge and understanding of YHWH to attempt to fit into the crowd or realize and embrace (HET) the separation was real and to be Qodesh (set apart) is an honor from YHWH. I chose not to conform to fit the crowd and be set apart so instead I am led by YHWH to build a space that YHWH is welcome all day and all night! The only way to drive out the Rauch-Ra. Does that sound familiar? Perhaps “drive out your enemies before you” Devarim (D 6.
Once I gained the understanding that allowing paganism into the things YHWH has given me was violating his YARAH I begin closely analyzing things and people that thought it was fine to continue walking in the double-mindedness. I can see the instability, chaos, and disorder still in their lives and it is like a snowball if no one goes for change. I also learned as I worked to gain order within my home and business that many fought for chaos and many people thought they should control me. I know, unbelievable, but since people have controlled others with money for many years now, they believe this works on everyone. Thankfully since we do not chase money I understand when I must let some people go so, I can gain the blessing of chasing the Kingdom of YHWH.
Having order in our lives is rewarding and a reflection of our Avy (Father) YHWH. He knows how to create and make things in order, and he is the Alohym of order. I love the systematic steps that he takes to build things out and we can see this daily in our lives. Using YHWH’s definition of sin and correction is the only way I want to walk and those that question his order normally can see it but refuse to admit things are backward in the world. Worshipping according to the world’s definition is part of the backward operation. We worship by working righteously 6 days a week and if you notice the ant parables you will see that we also work throughout the summer months. I compare this with how the seasons work. The sea does not warm up until about the 9th or 10th month you will know this time as of October or November. So, although it is hot outside the water is cold, not cool. The water is warm during the cool season. I believe it is confirmation that we can take days here and there, but summer vacation does not apply to us because that is also the season that we meet for the Fall Appointed Times of YHWH and we take time off for harvesting and renewal of covenants and teaching in the presence of YHWH.
The ants work throughout the summer preparing for winter and there is a reason YHWH uses this parable. We can learn a lot from the ants. YHWH gives us times and seasons and the instruction to work 6 days a week with the 7th day of rest but there are also other appointed times and seasons as well for Sabbath rest including taking around the 10th month off after the fall harvest. I think it is interesting that we also have harvesting seasons and it requires work to reap what is sown. The same in daily life. Of course, we want to reach the final judgment in great standing but to reap that reward it is sowing and cultivating daily in all things.
Isaiah 29:13 KJV – Therefore YHWH said: “These people draw near to Me with their mouths and honor Me with their lips, but their hearts are far from Me. Their worship of Me is but rules taught by men.
All things consist of what we say, what we think, and what we believe as in fastening to YARAH and not blowing around with every wind of doctrine but being true to the word even when no one else is doing the right(eous) thing. I found that YHWH’s mind, the mind of the YAHOSHUA, is clear and makes sense. What I did not understand is why people want to continue against the power? The answer is they really do not believe they will one day answer for their actions. Some may know and do not care but I think people foolishly believe YAHOSHUA will not return. Therefore, to see someone like the people of YHWH operate in his Torah is foolishness to the heathen also proving they only see the natural and think things of the spirit are foolishness because they love (worship) themselves.
Love in Hebrew is an expression of action by acknowledging the ultimate and perfect instruction of YARAH (TORAH) is the will of The Most High YHWH we walk it out or as do and therefore we worship (love) him. We do because we keep our mind staying on Torah and guides us to make the blessed decisions, he said we can have. When we chose someone or something over YARAH we are chosen over YHWH. I learned this as an action of worship and although we were deceived into this for centuries is not the time YHWH is allowing us to learn better to learn he is better. Standing in the word not on the word, as we do not trample the Torah, but stand in full agreement of its power and that what it says will bring his heavenly success of YHWH.
