Surrounded By Death

My family and I were conversing this morning and we arrived at the subject of mental health – being ignorant of others’ mental state, being careful of how you say things to people with that ignorance in mind, and just the overall carefulness one has to have in their reactions and interactions with people in different situations. It was a great conversation, and although it is true we should be careful and mindful of what we say, and more importantly how we say it, (we talked about that too!) we should never have or adopt a state of mind and think it’s right to apply that way of thinking to every circumstance of life. There’s a balance to life, a rhythm if you will. This balance or rhythm to life requires skill, a deftness, a flexibility where one understands, depending on the situation, what may work in this instance may not work or apply in that one. What may call for humility in this situation – walking away, cooler heads prevailing, etc. – may call for boldness and fearlessness in that. Where am I going with all of this? I say all of this to arrive at the Son of Elohim, the Chosen One of YAH – His greatness and wisdom embodied!!

Side note: I try not to say or write what “they” say the English transliteration/translation of His name is anymore, but that’s for another post.

An overview of the public ministry and life of The Life finds Him repeatedly at odds with people, particularly the religious leaders and “high society” of His day. It wasn’t that He necessarily opposed them, in the sense of starting altercations and bothering them about every little thing, but they opposed Him – deeply bothered (whether they knew that or not) by the Soap of YAH (Mal’akiy 3:2) showing up and airing their dirty laundry! And check this out: He “aired their dirty laundry” not by way of the flesh – the way of man – although He took on flesh and is the Son of Man (Adam) – but the way of His Father – righteous judgment! Wow! See and behold the character of Yahuah Elohim! Aww shoot! I have to go, but this deserves a Part 2! Until next time! Grace and Peace!
