Within the culture of “belief” are three main elements of consciousness
that polarize the religious worlds, these can be described as follows.
Messiah Consciousness is what connects us with our Spirits, love is a product of Messiah consciousness, this consciousness connects us with others and to our Life Force. The Ruach HaKodesh brings awareness of Messiah, Torah and G-d Consciousness. Mashiyach is the “Minister of Righteousness”, through Mashiyach we have the wisdom to apply Torah and the things of YHWH Elohim to this world. Even though many souls might reject the Messiahship of Yeshua, it is through Messiah Consciousness that one can approach “the Father” who is YHWH El Elyon. But those who focus only on Messiah and reject Torah or G-d Consciousness are not complete in Mashiyach, because Messiah Consciousness leads us to “the Father” and to Torah Consciousness.
Torah Consciousness is what connects the Will of Mashiyach with our own Actions. Torah represents the MIND OF MASHIYACH, it is Yeshua who walks in the fullness of Torah and Who shows mankind how to be established in His Righteousness. Jeremiah wrote of the Brit Chadasha (New Covenant) wherein the Torah would be written on our hearts. For those not raised within the commonwealth of a Torah community it is Messiah Consciousness that established the link to the “WORD OF YHWH”. The WORD is the creative force by which YHWH used to create the Universe. The WORD OF YHWH is mentioned 255 times in the Scriptures, there are 242 mentions in the Tanak and only 13 mentions in the Ketuvim Netzarim (writings of the Netzarim which Marcion called “the New Testament”). Psalm 33:6 “By the word of YHWH were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.” John 1:14 “The WORD of YHWH became flesh and dwelt among us.” The TORAH is the WORD of YHWH, within TORAH is the WORD of YHWH that holds the Universe together, without TORAH the world would not exist. Without Torah consciousness there is no harmony between the Spiritual and Natural worlds. Torah consciousness is the Authority of YHWH which aligns the natural world into His own Consciousness. Yeshua Mashiyach is both judged and established by Torah Consciousness, if Yeshua were to have violated Torah he would have been disqualified from being Mashiyach. Yeshua was the Perfect Lamb, His PERFECTION came through being altogether RIGHTEOUS. James stated, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. Of His own will He begat us with the Word of Truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.” The Word of Truth is Torah, the book of Moshe which is also confirmed by all the Prophets and the Testimony of Yeshua.
G-d Consciousness is the ultimate authority by which we live and have our being, but without both Messiah and Torah Consciousness there is ambiguity that can be interpreted in manifold ways, so much so that some call evil good and good evil. For an infinite G-d to connect to finite souls there must be a transaction in our neshama (spirit). The Word of YHWH is Spirit so as we open our hearts to receive the Word of YHWH we gain the Mind of Mashiyach. Mankind is prone to make gods in his own image, there is also the propensity to ride the vicious circle of “static god consciousness” which is another way of saying “religion”, or the methodology of god without personal relationship and interaction with YHWH Elohim. The Assyrian name for Bavel means “gate of God”, the tower of Bavel was considered by Assyrians to be the way to God, this was the Assyrian form of “g-d consciousness”. “God consciousness” for Greeks was man as the measure of all things, so much so that it was very common for men to be deified and worshipped as their gods. Many souls listen to false prophets and Television evangelists who make “images of god” through theological models, this “god consciousness” is based on the culture of self, the seminary or leadership duplicates false teaching by recruiting more volunteers to their own form of “god consciousness”.
Life is sustained through the physical and spiritual values of Messiah consciousness, but life is destroyed by anti-Messiah Consciousness. Purity of Messiah consciousness establishes Love, Compassion, and Caring, but even these most noble of attributes are easily perverted through the greed and selfishness of misplaced
“god consciousness”. Messiah Consciousness has reached it’s ultimate perversion through religion which capitalizes on ideas about Messiah, Torah or G-d but denies the power thereof. Although all religions advocate forms of Messiah Consciousness, all religions also prejudice themselves by installing Masters, Mentors and “enlightened ones” who stand in place of Mashiyach for their followers. These false shepherds are obstacles to Messiah and Torah Consciousness who operate on self made “god consciousness”. Many Christians claim to have a connection to YHWH through Messiah Consciousness, however we see blatant paganism within Christianity which speaks of hybrid consciousness derived from humanistic values. Orthodox Judaism claims to connect to YHWH through Torah Consciousness, however religious tradition has usurped true Torah Consciousness and installed the authority of man Rabbis, rather than the Living Torah.
Whether it be the New Age Movement, Christianity or Judaism, each religion struggles to define itself and be established within Messiah Consciousness, these religions have picked up many values from the anti-Messiah who is also anti-Torah, but very much pro “god”, hasatan offers himself as the alternative deity in many different forms. The word “God” means troop, fortune or luck, this adds confusion to the revelation of “God Consciousness” as even the definition of God is a departure from the truth of Elohim. Elohim is the original Hebrew word that was translated into “god”, Elohim refers only to the might or authority of deity, but YHWH and Mashiyach provide the specific attributes, authority and character of the one true Elohim. Since the beginning of man’s history there has been a struggle to connect to our True Nature and understand our existence on this earth. There are many hints of Torah based God Consciousness revealed in many parts of the earth, from Paleo Hebrew Coins on the islands of Papeete Tahiti within Ancient Polynesian and Chaldean culture, to Indian artifacts in New Mexico USA or to Brazilian Capuela, both Torah and Messiah Consciousness is evidenced. The challenge for us today is to know the reality of Messiah and Torah consciousness which makes us complete, we are to be a Kedoshim (Holy People) who are given the resources and intelligence to minister Justice. To be “Believers” is good first step towards the Perfection we are called to live within, but we must go on to maturity and Perfection. We have the resources in Yeshua and the Ruach HaKodesh to live, teach and harmonize the Word of reconciliation by walking in the Faith of Mashiyach and Observing Torah. From the pillars of Torah and Mashiyach consciousness we are to build a foundation towards true “YHWH consciousness”, only then can we know that it is not we who live for ourselves, but He who lives in us. YHWH has established His Word in us and through Mashiyach He harmonizes all things to Himself.
Let us take inventory and consider which of these three “connections” we feel the most comfortable. Which of these three do we lack confidence, in which do we feel strength? Based on the limitations of our own “human nature” we should recognize that whatever is the more familiar to us can also potentially be the most misaligned. If we feel we are strong in the area of Messiah Consciousness then we must ask YHWH to open our hearts to Torah Consciousness. If we feel our strength lies in Torah Consciousness then we must ask YHWH to open our hearts to Messiah Consciousness. If our actions do not align with the values we espouse, we must address our souls before YHWH and be reconciled in our values and actions. If we have conflict with other “Believers” we must also survey our own souls to see where we lack in wisdom or ability to reconcile all things in Yeshua. It is immature and irresponsible for souls to avoid conflict resolution by putting the onus of change upon others, even upon other religions, the fact of the matter is that we need diversity and conflict to mature us and prove Messiah & Torah Consciousness within us. We are called to be a Kedoshim which means the work of perfecting our souls is also dependant upon Mishpocha we are called to walk with, by withdrawing from conflicts or not establishing true reconciliation, Believers set themselves up to establish “god consciousness” according to the flesh, thereby neither developing maturity and fruits unto Mashiyach. We either receive or reject the Ruach HaKodesh based on how we choose to live our lives and treat others. May we each grow in the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of Elohim, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Mashiyach. Amen ve Amen!
