Shabbat Shalom, dearly beloved!
Lately, it seems that many people are being tested in their faith and trust in YHVH. Especially when there is a preparation for revival, the Holy Spirit begins to challenge many of our beliefs. He especially starts to confront rigidity and religiosity in us because true revival is a “Divine Intervention” of Yah in our lives and society. Once you study revival, you will see that it never happens the way that you imagined it. It looks like the Almighty loves to “short circuit” our logic and understanding. In fact, every time I go into my monthly prayer retreat, I come out with His prophetic revelation and instruction that forces me and those with me to expand, grow, repent, and change. If we have a living relationship with the Master, our knowledge of Him will be progressive and never stagnant. If it is stagnant, that means that somewhere along the way, we have lost the intimacy with Him and the prophetic cutting edge that should “spice” all our walk with Him.
“Worship God! For the testimony of Yeshua is the spirit of prophecy.” Revelation 19:10b
If we are walking with The Master, the Spirit of Prophecy should always be flowing in us; thus, our relationship with Him can never be stale. His name is YAHVEH which means THE ‘I AM,’ and though He is the “I was” and the “I will be” – though He is all in all – He still manifests Himself daily, and so He is the I AM.
So, as the Holy Spirit says: “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the desert. Hebrews 3:7-8
It is not enough to “obey Him” because He said so; it is necessary to seek Him daily to expect His fresh manna. He says, “Today if you hear his voice!” Many people become very rigid in their walk and in their perspective, they do not notice that they have lost personal intimacy with the Holy Spirit. They are “satisfied” because they obey His known commandments, but they violate the most important one: “You shall love YHVH your Elohim with ALL your heart, mind, and strength.” There is no way you can love someone you have no personal, intimate relationship with, or if the whole relationship is based on a faded memory of a past experience, but nothing new and exciting ever happens. It is necessary that we obey all that we know as well as it is equally necessary to seek Him daily as His revelation is progressive. Remember that we are limited by the frame of our own mindsets, so as we walk with Him, He challenges our mindset and way of understanding Scripture daily.
Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God, who also made us adequate as servants of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 2 Corinthians 3:5-6
This is very simple: If there is no true freshness, excitement, anointing, and power in your walk, you have become religious and somehow self-satisfied with your walk, even self-righteous. If that is the case, you are trying to “feast” on stale manna, which has worms.
But they did not listen to Moses, and some left part of it until morning, and it bred worms and became foul; and Moses was angry with them. Exodus 16:20
YHVH rained down His Heavenly food every day and commanded them to gather it every day. Some did not want to bother with “everyday” things like this and thought they could store it. The outcome was worms! In the same way, we cannot “store up intimacy” with The Holy Spirit but rather seek Him daily, obey Him daily, and receive His Grace and enablement daily. Paul said that He prayed continuously! He prayed all the time in the Spirit, that is, in tongues. Many people do not realize how extremely important baptism in the Holy Spirit with praying in tongues is. It enables us to pray without ceasing and strengthen our faith constantly. This is not a logical device but a supernatural ability that releases faith and power in our lives. It enables us to keep ourselves in the Love of God against which there is no law that can judge us.
But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting anxiously for the mercy of our Lord Yeshua Messiah to eternal life. Jude 20-21
We can see that keeping ourselves in the love of Elohim is impossible without the power of the Holy Spirit and that this power is released when we pray in tongues continuously. In my experience, when I want revelation on an issue, I just pray in the Spirit (in tongues), and I lay down my own mindsets and opinions before Him. When I do that, He always downloads on me His revelation, which is always beyond what I could have thought. It is always so simple that it short circuits my mind and leads me back to child-like faith, trust, and love. It always halts all my self-effort and witty devices and leads me to humility, childlikeness, and power.
Then he said to me, “This is the word of YHVH to Zerubbabel saying, ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the YHVH of hosts. Zechariah 4:6
In every situation, I have experienced that Yah is much more gracious than my rigid interpretations of His Law. He is the Lord of His Law, and in every situation, He applies the “golden rule” of mercy,
For judgment will be merciless to one who has shown no mercy; mercy triumphs over judgment. Yakov (James) 2:13
So, is the Law done away with? Absolutely not! We will always be judged by His Law, and as we repent, His judgment can be overruled by His Mercy! Does that mean that Grace is to be taken lightly? God forbid! Grace is not a license to sin but rather the reason to obey Him because He is gracious and compassionate. He desires an intimate walk with each of us where the Law of the Lord is submitted to the Lord of the Law.
Then we can rightly say that there is absolutely no need to choose between Law and Grace; it is both His Law (written in our hearts) and Grace, His Word and His Character, the Fruits and the Gifts, the Torah and the Holy Spirit. To walk in this fine balance, we must depend on Him and His Power alone. No flesh will help us here! That is why He said,
So that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. Romans 8:4
When we walk in the Power of the Holy Spirit, in His Grace, daily seeking and in obedience, we display The Torah written in our hearts, and then we can show the Fruit of the Spirit, which is love, and against it, there is no law that can judge us. Love will honor and respect others though we may disagree with them, love will release and forgive, love will humble itself, and love will give its own opinions up for the sake of Love. Elohim-God is Love; that is who He is, His Character. There is no use in “keeping the Law” and forfeiting Love; if we do so, we miss God altogether. Love is so powerful that even if in ignorance or distress we sinned, love is still greater, and it covers a multitude of sins.
In our righteous zeal to restore the Eternal Torah, let us not forget the Power of the Holy Spirit to walk in Love manifesting a supernatural lifestyle of signs, wonders, and miracles, lest we fall into a rigid religiosity and a stale relationship full of worms and lose the Holy Spirit altogether.
The Law of the Lord is Love; the Lord of the Law is Love.

Support our Prison Ministry
The MAP prison ministry, pioneered by Rabbi Baruch Bierman, has expanded fast: We have over 600 inmates studying GRM Bible School behind bars, and the number keeps growing weekly. Many students have sent us testimonies of their changed lives.
Testimonies from our inmate students:
I have been wrong all my life, but now I understand what God wants from me for the first time in my life!
GRM Bible School has saved my life! I was not well physically, and my spiritual life was hanging by a thread because it was all built on false doctrines and lies. Now I have a deep, healthy, and thriving relationship with Yeshua.
I need God desperately to come into my life and save me from this havoc way of living. Thank you for this book. Pray for me, please, and I hope you will continue to teach me; I need this!
The truths I have learned through GRM Bible School have changed me to be a better citizen in His Kingdom.
