DO YOU PREFER MILK
TO SOLID FOOD?
Why are so Many of Yahweh's called-out sheep so obsessed with the milk of the Wo
Dearly beloved of Yahshua the Lamb, Scripture clearly instructs us to move on to maturity –--- ‘not laying again the foundations.’ In reality, many---particularly those contaminated with roman christian attitudes, and messianic jews who are similarly contaminated with rabbinical "letter of the law" doctrines, are fixated on things even lesser than the Milk of the Word, not even listed among the other aspects –-- Yahweh loves you; Yahweh cares for you; Yahweh understands you, Yahweh likes sacrifices, Yahweh likes we engage in the technicalities of the physical law, etc… we already know where all that eventually leads His people---astray!---and we must move on to maturity beyond the basics of even the Milk of the Word listing.
Many of us sometimes are so fond of saying to someone things like ‘Get a life’ or ‘Harden up princess'---not particularly myself, though---but we refuse to see that it is just as relevant coming from Yahweh to us. My dear fellow brethren, we certainly need to ‘harden up,’ and get on with maturing and with moving beyond this most elementary need. Oh, and to stop feeding this "laodicean church mentality" by always encouraging others with the same most elementary stuff.
Being "firm in the Milk" is okay for a newly called-out sheep, but it is nothing to be proud of, if you consider yourself a mature follower and doer of Torah!
Frankly, we need to tell ourselves and other followers of Our Master and Saviour Yahshua Ha Mashiach, to harden up –--- to grow up! Hebrews 5:11 in this regard says: "We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of Yahweh’s Word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!
"Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil."
Hebrews 6:1 expounds further: "Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Mashich and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in Yahweh, instruction about cleansing rites, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment."
Thus says Yahweh above. Yet, we continually see examples of these less-than-even-the-Milk-of-the-Word around us; self-centered, immaturity-generating stuff, posted in the internet by older, supposedly mature followers---or taught at their churches, assemblies, yeshivas or kehiloht. Brethren, while we are continually pampering our ego, we promote a lack of action leading to maturity, and this is SIN!
Repent from it! Set your soul and love on "high heat" for your Master Yahshua.
To all of you, may you be blessed, with His brotherly love,
