I have been studying the Bible for many years. That does not mean everything I say about it is spot on, but I strive to be as close as possible by testing everything I think, hear, and see by the Bible and Spirit to see if it is true to YaHavah. Putting the Bible message into the elements of journalism has helped me to do that. Maybe it will help you, also.
Our Creator, YHVH, employs the journalistic elements of who, what, when, where, why, and the how to teach us about himself:
1. The (who’s) of reporting are the protagonist and antagonist. Bible protagonists are our Creator, YHVH and His Son, Jesus. Antagonists are Satan, aka, Lucifer the fallen angel, and his earthly counterpart, the end time Antichrist, aka, Daniel’s Fourth Beast.
2. The (what) is a conflict between YaHavah and Satan of unimaginable proportions from
beginning to end.
3. The (when) begins in a time before creation, as we know it and ends with a new
4. The physical (where) began in the realm of heaven, moved to earth, then will move to a
new heaven and earth. (Third Heaven, Eden, and New Jerusalem)
5. The spiritual (where) is in the hearts and minds of humanity and our Creator, YHVH.
6. The (how) is in the causative actions of the unseen infinite, omnipresent, omnipotent,
and omniscient YaHavah. (From his place in heaven, the mind (spirit) of YHVH reaches
everything everywhere without limitations.)
7. The (why) is to remove sin from YaHavah’s creation.
The Mystery of the Holy Spirit:
Apostle Paul described the mystery of the Spirit this way:
Ephesians 3:14-21 “14—For this cause I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15—of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16—that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 17—that Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in agape love, 18—may be able to comprehend with all Saints what [is] the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19—and to know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of YHVH. 20—Now to him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21—to him [be] glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.”
Oh, the volumes these verses speak. YaHavah anoints true believers of himself and his son, Jesus, in his Spirit and the seven spirit aspects to teach us about himself and the breadth, length, depth, and height of his presence by his Spirit.
Spirit Anointing: Dictionaries define the word Christian as a follower of Christ. But consider this: Christ means anointed. Doesn’t it make sense that Christian means one who is anointed (in the same Spirit as Jesus)? After all, to be anointed is to have the presence of YHVH in one’s life, choices, and decisions. It is the same as Immanuel, which means YHVH with us. (items 6 and 7 above)
The anointing is to have YHVH’s presence by his limitless Spirit; which includes his wisdom, counsel, knowledge, understanding, strength, and the fear of YHVH, aka, the seven spirits of YHVH. The seven spirits are the attributes of YaHavah’s Spirit by which he teaches and watches over his own. (Isaiah 11:1-2; Proverbs 2) They are the attributes of his anointing in rebirth for believers of Jesus. Jesus was first to receive this anointing, then he sent it to his disciples after he ascended to heaven to be glorified. (Rev. 5:6)
The Spirit anointing will leave, or never come, if a person’s heart is not wholly for YHVH and Jesus.
