Pity on the Poor
Yahweh Repays the Giver - Always!
It makes my lev (heart) heavy seeing unregenerated messianics attacking the Messiah and evangelicals who have unquestionably met Him and have been born again of the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit). They squabble over words and names and totally miss the point of redemption. Sometimes it makes me ashamed to even call myself 'messianic' when I see these people attacking other believers. However, the Messianic Movement is as riddled with heresy as is Protestantism so we should not be surprised. And there is no doubt in my mind that many Messianics are not saved.
"He who has pity on the poor lends to Yahweh, and He will pay back what he has given" (Prov.19:17, NKJV).
In today's passage we are given a remez or hint as to how Yahweh takes pity on those who are spiritually poor - whether humble or lacking in salvation - that's all of us, for we are destitute without our Messiah. Yahweh, moreover, repaid Yah'shua (Jesus) with the Resurrection! Yah'shua (Jesus) surrendered His Chayim (Life) and His Father Yahweh gave Him Resurrection Chayim (Life).
Herein is illustrated a cosmic principle that is repeated on every level of creation. As we give in the way Yahweh commands, creating an empty space or vacuum in ourselves caused by that giving, so Yahweh more than fills that space again - he fills it abundantly to the point of overflowing. As we give in Yah'shua (Jesus), so we are multiplied. Here we occupy female position, emptying ourselves in sacrifice, and so Yah'shua (Jesus) as male principle fills it to overflowing. And as Yah'shua (Jesus) emptied Himself on the Cross (in female position), so Yahweh filled Him with Resurrection Power!
All we need is emunah (faith, trusting) in this simple divine tavnith (pattern) principle and a willingness to dare to do it to see it in action.
Yes, Yahweh takes pity on the poor - us - and whatsoever we give, He always pays back many times over - Hallelu-Yah!
