InfluencesPosted: January 8, 2012
The intricate detail of the work Elohim (God) weaves into our lives is a marvelous thing. He works the tapestry of our live by His Word through Ruach (Spirit) using the people and events he brings into our lives. There is no way, however, that any person can comprehend the work that he is doing from begining to end.
- (Ecc 3:11 CJB) He has made everything suited to its time; also, he has given human beings an awareness of eternity; but in such a way that they can’t fully comprehend, from beginning to end, the things God does.
I am aware that Elohim has used people and events He has brought into my life to influence and direct me in His Word and to a Messianic understanding. Some of these people and events have made a deep impression on me. They have influenced my understanding of salvation through Yeshua (Jesus) and His bringing me to the Torah for which I want to give Elohim the glory.
Of course I am sure that there are many people and events of which I am unaware or which I do not fully appreciate. I should probably be thankful to numerous people who deliberately contributed effort toward my spiritual growth that I haven’t even noticed. Expressing gratitude to others for their help in you life is a good thing, because it helps to keep you humble, and to know that the work was not yours but Elohim’s.
My purpose with this blog is to explain the ones that I understand so that you will understand how Elohim has moved me to be Messianic.
