This week’s Torah Portion is a flow on and continues of what we as the Bride
will do in the House of YHVH. We have covered the Marriage and the Threshold
Covenant that allows Her to come into the House. Last week we looked at
Holiness, what She needs to do inside the House and this week we look at the
transformation of the Bride into the Priesthood, where She will be equipped to
serve people outside of the House, leading them in.
The name of this Torah Portion is “Emor” that means to speak. Emor rma is
spelled “aleph-mem-resh” where Aleph = Strength, Mem = Water and Resh =
Head. This gives the meaning of “strong-water-head”. Any strong river will start
with strong-head-waters that cause it to flow form a high place down into the
ocean. This is the picture of what Faith is according to Psalm 1.
Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the Torah of YHVH, And in His Torah, he meditates

day and night. 3 He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not
wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.

Faith is the word “amunah” hnma
where the Aleph represents “strength
or YHVH”, the Mem represents
“water”, the Nun represents
“fruitfulness”, and the Hey represents
“light”. The Bride is the Tree that is
planted by living waters (Mem=Word)
that cause Her to bear fruit (Nun) and
be a light (Hey) in this dark world.
The words that come out of YHVH’s
mouth is like strong-head-waters
(emor) that are given to us for life, to
sustain us, to nourish us as well as to cleanse us from things that can cause our
light to grow dim. Listening and obeying YHVH’s words is like applying these
waters to our lives so that we can live clean, healthy lives.

1
Standards for the High Priest
This Torah Portion starts off with YHVH telling Moses “to speak” (emor) to the
Priests, giving them the Standards for the Priests and then he gave the
Standards for a High Priest. To speak, as we have seen, has to do with YHVH’s
water flowing like water and causing them to bear fruit and shine light amongst
YHVH’s people, laying the foundation of Faith (amunah). The Standards for the
Cohan Gadol or High Priest is higher than that of a Priest and are the following:
• He is not to defile himself with a dead person, could only mourn the
death of a loved one.
• Not get in contact with a dead corpse.
• He is not allowed to go out of the Sanctuary while in service or profane
the Sanctuary.
• He is not to marry a non-virgin or divorced woman.
• He could not have any blemish.
Q – Why does the High Priest have to comply with these five things?

Prophetic Application: These five things relates to Y’shua being our High
Priest and the world to come.
• There will be no mourning, and there will be
no death in the world to come.
• No one will be contaminated with dead
bodies and sickness; everybody will have
newly renewed bodies and not be subject to
the fallen leprous state man was used to be
born into.
• Sanctuary comes from the word “to
sanctify”, and YHVH will sanctify His
Creation, restoring it back to the initial
sinless state. In the world to come, no one will leave the Sanctuary or
restored the world. Everything will be perfect, just like it was in the
Garden of Eden and we will dwell with YHVH.
• Y’shua will only marry a virgin, the Bride, who sanctified Herself with the
water of the Word and who kept Herself set apart and Holy unto Him.
• In the world to come, everybody will be made new and not have any spot
or blemish, with a restored “new nature” without any craving to sin.
All of the standards for a High Priest is what He will create for us as His Bride in
the world to come and gives us a picture of what the new heaven and new earth
will be like.

From Bride to Priest
We are going to look at the standards for the Priesthood where we as the Bride
are being transformed into becoming the Priesthood through Y’shua our High
Priest. If we go back over the last couple of Torah Portions, we learned how
YHVH took Israel out of Egypt, how we are taken out of sin and bondage as
symbolised by the Passover Feast. This gives us an insight of the Marriage
Covenant, the Threshold Covenant that allowed us to become His Bride and
entering into His House.

2
Last week we looked at what is to happen
inside the House; where the Bride is set apart
and prepared for the second part of the
Marriage Covenant that will take place at
Y’shua’s Second Coming. All of this is depicted
in the symbolism of the Festivals. This
Preparation Process is called Holiness, where
YHVH made us set-apart from His point of
view. This “Holy State” allows us to be included
in His Restoration Plan under the leadership of
our High Priest (Y’shua). On the other side of Holiness, from our point of view,
we as the Bride need to “stay set apart” and Holy to be used by Him as His
Priesthood. That is why YHVH gave the Standards for the Priesthood so that
they will “protect and guard” our Holiness and keep us from being defiled and
become useless. This transforms the Bride into the Priesthood where She will
work with Y’shua to bring new Believers into Covenant with Him, helping them
to enter into a Marriage Covenant into the House of the Father.
The function of the Priesthood is to serve the people and to facilitate YHVH’s
Temple service as well as to teach new people the Ways of YHVH. There were
many Priests, and not all served in the Temple all the time. They were on a roster
and might have served only two weeks in a year.
Q – What did they do for the rest of the year?
We find the responsibilities for the Priesthood in the Book of Malakai where
YHVH reprimanded His Priesthood and reminded them of their duties:
Mal 2:1, 6-7 And now, O Priests, this Commandment is for you. 6 The
Torah of Truth was in his mouth, And injustice was not found on his lips.
He walked with Me in peace and equity and turned many away from
iniquity. 7 “For the lips of a priest should keep knowledge,
and people should seek the Torah from his mouth; For he is the
messenger of YHVH of hosts.
These are the duties of the Priesthood as Commanded by YHVH:
o Torah of truth in our mouths – Know the Torah and align your words
with the Truths found in the wisdom of the Torah so that injustice would
not be found on your lips. The Priests had no land of their own and lived
among the people. They had the duty of governing the people and
make sure justice is found within any situation or dispute that occurred
amongst the people. They had the duty of judging a situation and speak
a judgement over the guilty party according to the guidelines and wisdom
within in the Torah.
o Walked in peace and equality, turning people away from iniquity –
The Priests represented YHVH to the people, having the authority of
YHVH where they had to keep people from living in iniquity. They had the
authority and responsibility to lead the people, representing YHVH
through their own conduct, leading by example, so that the people will
follow and not cause themselves to perform acts of iniquity.
o His Lips to keep knowledge – The Priests had the responsibility to
teach the people the knowledge of the Torah. They were all teachers
and had to know the Torah to teach it to others.

The Kingdom, the House & the Priesthood
We are now going to look at things regarding the
Priesthood and how we can apply these spiritual
principles in our lives so that we can “guard and
protect” our Holiness so that we can be effective and
be used by YHVH for the benefit of His Kingdom.
Rev 1:6 and has made us kings (a Kingdom),
Priests unto His God and Father, to Him be glory
and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
This verse is normally translated as “kings and
priests”, but the Greek word “basileus” means leader within the context of a
kingdom gives is the more accurate translation of “Kingdom of Priests” or
Priests within the Kingdom of YHVH. Y’shua is the King of His Kingdom, and we
are the leaders (Priests) that rule with Him, under His authority as High Priest.
This verse is sometimes used out of context as part of the Prosperity
teaching where the people of God consists of two groups; on the one side
are the majority of the people who are kings, making money in the world.
They bring the money to the Priests, the other part of the group. They are
the Pasters who are running their Ministries expanding their kingdoms (or
Kingdom of God – depending on the motive). This message has nothing to
do with the Passover Lamb Who redeemed His people and is a false
doctrine that uses the Word out of context to fit a false prosperity doctrine.
Rev 6:1 is in the context of us being washed and redeemed by the Blood of
Messiah that made us a Kingdom of Priests. The same concept is found in Rev
5:10 where the Lamb took the Scroll, the Lamb Who is worthy of opening it
because He redeemed mankind and made them a Kingdom of Priests.
Both these passages are in the context of Y’shua being the Passover Lamb, the
Marriage or Threshold Covenant that redeemed and allow us to become His
Priesthood. We also find this terminology in Rev 20:6 where it talks about the
Priesthood of Y’shua that will reign with Him for 1000 years before the
establishment of the New Jerusalem.
All three these passages in Revelation reveals us as leaders in YHVH’s
Kingdom in the form of Priests serving under the High Priest. We find another
passage in the Apostolic Writings (NT) that reveal us as His Priesthood.
1 Pet 2:4-9 Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men,
but chosen by YHVH and precious, 5 you also, as living stones, are being
built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual
sacrifices acceptable to YHVH through Y’shua the Messiah. 6 Therefore it
is also contained in the Scripture, “Behold, I lay in Zion A chief
cornerstone, elect, precious, And he who believes on Him will by no
means be put to shame.” 7 Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious;
but to those who are disobedient, “The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone,” 8 and “A stone of stumbling
And a rock of offence.” They stumble, being disobedient to the Word, to
which they also were appointed. 9 But you are a chosen Generation, a
Royal Priesthood, a Holy nation, His own special people, that you may
proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His

4
marvelous light; 10 who once were not a people but are now the people of
YHVH, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.
Here we are referred to as “Living Stones” that make up
the House of YHVH. The House of YHVH is not a
Building but rather a functional Priesthood that serves
the purpose of leading people into the Kingdom of
YHVH. They perform “spiritual sacrifices”, and we had
looked at some of these when we looked at the duties
of the Priesthood in the Book of Malachi. This “spiritual
sacrifice” is where you become the Sacrifice, just like
Y’shua did, offering your life in service of YHVH.
We had looked at the “stones” of the House when we studied “Leprosy in the
House” where there are blessings hidden behind every leprous stone if the
leprosy is dealt with. When you make yourself available to YHVH and allow
yourself to be Holy and useful, you become a “blessing to the House” of which
you are a building block or stone. This means that you can be a useful part of
His House, becoming His Bride, becoming set-apart and preserving your
Holiness so that you can become part of His Priesthood, a living sacrifice in
service of your High Priest for the benefit of His Kingdom (not yours).

Standards of the Priesthood
We will now look at the Standards for the Priesthood and how they apply to us
as the Priesthood of Y’shua under the order of Melchizedek.
Lev 21:16-21 And YHVH spoke to Moses, saying, 17 “Speak to Aaron,
saying: ‘No man of your descendants in succeeding generations, who
has any defect, may approach to offer the bread of his Elohim. 18 For any
man who has a defect shall not approach: a man blind or lame, who has
a marred face or any limb too long, 19 a man who has a broken foot or
broken hand, 20 or is a hunchback or a dwarf, or a man who has a defect
in his eye, or eczema or scab, or is a eunuch. 21 No man of the descendants
of Aaron, the priest, who has a defect, shall come near to offer the
offerings made by fire to YHVH. He has a defect; he shall not come near
to offer the bread of his Elohim.
Priests with the following defects are not permitted to serve in YHVH’s House.
Blind – This relates to someone who is spiritually blind, someone who cannot
see the truth. It is not to say they are evil, but they do not
have the gifting of understanding the Word in such a way
to help others and should rather be of the ones who are
taught than the one teaching. If you are a Priest
according to the order of Melchizedek, you need to see
the invisible spiritual things and reveal it in the natural to
others. If you look at a picture, you can either see paint,
or you can see the image within the paint. The paint is
just the medium and you need our spiritual eyes opened
so that we can see the “images” YHVH reveals to you
within His Word. Otherwise you will just see words and
letters that do not make any sense. The spiritually blind
are not permitted to lead others in the House of YHVH.

• Lame is the word “picceach” and is found in
Scripture in 2 Sam 5:6-8 where David slew all the
Jebusites, the blind and the lame within Jerusalem.
Then used again in 2 Sam 9:13 where King David
showed kindness to Jonathan’s son Mephibosheth,
who was lame. Because of the covenant between
David and Jonathan, Mephibosheth was treated as
a son and allowed to eat at the table of King David.
The word “lame” comes from the root word
“pasach” that means “pass over, to limp, to skip
over”. It is first used in Exo 12:13 in the Exodus
where YHVH “passed over” because of the blood Covenant.
Spiritual Application: Connecting these thoughts gives us insight that
the blind lame deserved to die, but Jonathan’s lame son was spared
because of the Blood Covenant. Those who are in Covenant with YHVH
can sit at His Table but are not allowed to serve as one of His Priests in
the House. To be lame means not to be able to walk and like we saw last
week, to walk means your “halacha” that needs to change to become
Holy unto YHVH as part of His Bride or Priesthood. This means that
there are people in the Assembly that are not set-apart, but are “saved”
because of the Blood Covenant and their faith in Messiah. They will be
Guests at the final Marriage Feast but not be part of the Bride of the
Priesthood because of their “lack of holiness” or lack of preparation as
the Bride of Messiah.
• Marred face or flat nose – This is the word “charam” that means “to
ban, devote, destroy utterly, dedicate for destruction and exterminate”. It
is first used in Scripture in Exo 22:20 where YHVH Commanded not to
sacrifice to any other god and those who does, will be destroyed.
Spiritual Application: Face in Hebrew means the
presence of YHVH and nose means anger. If you
say, you serve YHVH but come in the presence or
face of another god or idol you provoke YHVH to
anger. It is as if you come before YHVH with a
“perverted face” or “mocking face” as children do to
provoke each other. This is related to things we as
Believers do, mixing our traditions and culture in with
worshipping YHVH. Examples of this are Christmas
father and Easter bunnies and eggs, misrepresenting what the Word says.
If you do this, it is as if you come into His presence with a “twisted face”,
mocking Him and provoking Him to anger. You cannot serve as a Priest in
the Kingdom is you have not ridden yourself from previous traditions that
are contrary to YHVH’s Word.

6
• Limb too long – This is the word “sara” that means “to extend out, stretch
out or be deformed by an excess of members” This word
is found in Isa 28:20 where YHVH spoke judgement over
Ephraim who engaged in drunkenness and spoke lies
(Read whole chapter’s context).
Spiritual Application: In relation with serving as Priests
in the House of YHVH, being drunk and spreading lies or
false teachings, shows us something that is happening in
the Body of Messiah today that is not permitted. This is
where Ephraim (Christianity), being Leaders (Priesthood)
in the House, allows and engage in “drunkenness” or
being drunk in the Spirit within the Body of Messiah. They teach that
YHVH’s Spirit is the bartender and bring in the ways of the world
(drunkenness) into YHVH’s House, making it profane. This is a false
teaching and is like someone with a long limb who’s walk is crooked,
stumbling from side to side like a drunk. YHVH said He would sweep away
these lies with “hail” and “water”. Water is the Word of Truth and hail
represents the opposite of peace, allowing confusion. This means that
YHVH will destroy these false teachings with confusion so that He can
establish His Truth.
• Broken foot or hand – Broken comes from the
root word “sheber” that means “breaking,
fracture, crushing, breach, crash, ruin,
shattering”. It is first found in Scripture in Gen
19:9 where the Messengers went to Lot’s house
before the destruction and crashing of Sodom
and Gomorrah, making them into ruins. These
people lived immoral lives and wanted to have
relations with the two men Lot lodged and
protected.
Spiritual Application: The broken foot and
broken hand shows us that there is an issue with the way they walk, their
“halacha” and with their deeds (hands) that are perverse and immoral.
Believers who engage in these immoral deeds or relationships are not
allowed to serve as Priests in YHVH’s House.
Another form of this is when your walk can be right but your hand broken.
You can live a righteous life but never accomplish anything for YHVH, or
your hand can be good but your foot was broken. You can accomplish
many good things, but you cause issues along the way as you do them,
walking unrighteous, destroying YHVH’s people as you go. These two are
examples of people in the Kingdom who are not to be part of YHVH’s
Priesthood.

• Hunchback – This is the word ]bg “gibben” that means “arched or
contracted”. This word is made up of two parts; the last two letters”
bet-nun” ]b that is “ben” that means “son” and the first two letters

“gimel-bet” bg that are “gabe” that means “pit, trench or ditch”.
Spiritual Application: This word is found in 2 Kin 3:16 where
YHVH told the King of Israel to make the land full of ditches so that
it may be filled with water as a means to overcome the enemy. The
context of this verse is where three Kings, Judah, Israel and Edom,
rose up against the Moabites. Moab means, ”of his father” and they are
the descendants of Moab, the son of Lot by his eldest daughter. This was
a sin and not permitted in Torah as covered in last week’s Torah Portion.
This makes the Moabites a son of incest, a cursed people and enemy of
Israel. This links to the verse in Rev 17:5 where it talks about the Mother
of Harlots, the enemy of YHVH’s people who have illegitimate offspring
as a result of Her sin. The Mother of Harlots is a symbol for the end time
false Religious System that will control all the churches and organisations
that submit under Her False System. YHVH calls these churches harlots
and daughters of this System, the Woman who rides the Beast that is the
System is lead and head up to the Catholic Church who persecuted
YHVH’s people in the dark ages, they changed laws and times according
to Dan 7:25. Ever wondered what these “laws” and “times” mean? The
laws are the Commandments of YHVH, especially the Sabbath
Commandment and the “times” are YHVH’s “Appointed Times” or Feasts
that were replaced with Easter and Christmas.
The symbolism of making ditches in the land so that water can fill it to
overcome this enemy is a message to all believers to “unlearn” the
doctrines of this System, digging ditches and pits to take out the old and
make room for the real Truth of YHVH’s Word. If the old doctrines are
removed, then YHVH will fill it with His Water, restoring His
Commandments and Appointed Times. Believers who still cling and
submit under these “changed” truths of this System will “grow a
hunchback” or skewed support system (faith) and will not be effective in
serving in YHVH’s House as His Priesthood.
• Dwarf – This is the word “daq” that means “thin or small”. It is first used
in Scripture in Gen 41:3 where it describes the seven thin cows that ate
the seven fat cows. It comes from the root word “daqaq” that means
“crush, beat into pieces, make dust” and was first used in Scripture in
Exo 30:36 where YHVH told Moses to crush the golden calf into powder
and throw it into the water so that the people can drink it.
Spiritual Application: This is similar to someone with a marred face,
worshipping YHVH by mixing foreign worship with the worship described
in the Word. This “idol” is linked to the seven fat cows and seven skinny
cows, that means that “prosperity” devoured by “thin ones”. The “thin
ones” are the “least” or “dwarfs” (“daq” in Hebrew) that will teach people
contrary to His Commandments, teaching false doctrines, as mentioned
by Y’shua in Matt 5:19.

8
The passage in Matt 7:15 describes these false teachings that are taught
by false prophets who are wolves in sheep’s clothing, devouring the flock
with their teachings. This warning goes back to the time of Ezekiel.
Eze 22:25-29 The conspiracy of
her prophets[b] in her midst is like
a roaring lion tearing the prey;
they have devoured people; they
have taken treasure and precious
things; they have made many
widows in her midst. 26 Her
priests have violated My Torah
and profaned My holy things; they
have not distinguished between
the holy and unholy, nor have they
made known the difference between the unclean and the clean;
and they have hidden their eyes from My Sabbaths, so that I am
profaned among them. 27 Her princes in her midst are like wolves
tearing the prey, to shed blood, to destroy people, and to get
dishonest gain. 28 Her prophets plastered them with
untempered mortar, seeing false visions, and divining lies for
them, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord God,’ when YHVH had not
spoken.
These doctrines and teachings are far removed from YHVH’s Torah and
are messages that destroy the people and allow them to receive
dishonest gain. The “skinny ones” or “least in the Kingdom” are
devouring the “prosperous ones”, the People of YHVH through false
teachings. They feed on the flocks but do not teach YHVH’s Word, His
Holy things and Feasts, regarding clean and unclean, and they disregard
YHVH’s Sabbath. Pastors who teach these things are false Prophets who
are ravening wolves and not part of YHVH’s Priesthood or
Bride. They are the “least” in the Kingdom and will not rule with
Messiah.
• Eye defect or blemish in the eye – This is the word “tevalul”
that comes from the root word “balal” that means “to mix,
mingle and confuse”. This word is first found in Scripture in Gen
11:7 where YHVH confused the languages when man constructed
the Tower of Babel, trying to become like YHVH. Tower
is the word “migdal” and means “elevated” and is a
symbol of pride. This was the sin that causes Lucifer to
fall when he said he said in Isa 14:14 “…I will be like
the Most High; I will ascend above the clouds and
raising my throne above the stars of YHVH…”.
Spiritual Application: If there is something wrong with your eye it
means that there is something wrong with the way you see things.
From these examples in Scripture we find that this problem is rooted in
pride where people “see themselves” elevated above other people and
fell into the same trap Lucifer fell, building the Tower of Babel. Pride will
distort your vision, and you will “step on others” to elevate yourself.
Pride’s motive is not to serve YHVH but is a form of self-worship.

9
Believers in Messiah with pride in their lives will not be part of the Bride
or YHVH’s Priesthood.
• Skin problem like eczema or scab – This is the word “garav” that
means “scab, itch and to scratch” and is found in Scripture in Deut 28
where YHVH spoke blessings and curses over His people as a result of
their obedience or rebellion against His Commandments.
Deut 28:15,27 But it shall come to pass, if thou
will not listen to the voice of YHVH your Elohim,
to observe to do all his Commandments and his
Statutes which I command you this day; that all
these curses shall come upon you, and overtake
you: 27 YHVH will smite you with the boil of
Egypt, and with the tumour, and with the scab,
and with the itch, whereof you cannot be healed.
Spiritual Application: This condition is linked to not doing YHVH’s
Commandments and thus allowing this curse to come upon those who
rebel against YHVH. This condition manifests on the skin just like
Leprosy and shares the same roots namely sin and rebellion. People
who refuse to listen to YHVH’s Word and conform to His Ways are like
people with an itch, always “scratching the same issue” and not moving
on, embracing YHVH’s whole Truth. Is your flesh disqualifying you to
achieve anything for YHVH? Rebellious and stubborn Believers like this
cannot be used by YHVH and will not be part of His Priesthood.
• A Eunuch – This is someone who have his “stones broken” or his
testicles damaged.
Spiritual Application: Testicles has to do with fruitfulness
and having an offspring, in other words, bear fruit. Y’shua
said in Matt 7:20 that you will know a tree by its fruit and in
Matt 21:18-22 He cursed the Fig Tree for not having any
fruit. This is an example of believers not carrying the Fruit
of YHVH’s Sprit:
o Love – This is the Heading for the Commandments of YHVH; Love
YHVH with all your heart soul and strength and your neighbour as
yourself. Love should always be present in whatever you do and the
motive by which you do all the other Commandments that is a proof
of loving YHVH. Y’shua said in John 14:15 “if you love Me you will
do My Commandments.”
o Joy - Joy in the Hope that we have in Him will carry you through any
situation. Joy in your life is the sign that you have faith and hope.
James said that you have to count it all joy when you go through trials
and tribulations. This joy is a proof of your faith in YHVH’s outcome.

10
o Peace - YHVH made peace with man through the Blood of
Messiah, and we can have His peace within us, with the help of
His Spirit.
o Longsuffering - Patience is linked to Faith and is
the process required so that faith can manifest the
outcome YHVH has provided. Patience is needed so that
a work that can be done within you, while you wait.
James 1:2-4 My brethren, count it all joy when you
fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your
faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect
work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking
nothing.
o Gentleness or Kindness – This concept of kindness is
found in Gen 19:19 where Lot showed kindness to the Messengers
and YHVH showed kindness towards Lot before destroying Sodom
and Gomorrah. Kindness is the key to unlocking YHVH’s mercy upon
your life.
Gen 19:19 Indeed now, your servant has found favour in your
sight, and you have increased your kindness (chesed) which you
have shown me by saving my life.
Goodness – Goodness is based on doing good to others, and this is
the Hebrew word “mitzvot” or “good works”. These “good works” were
created beforehand (Commandments) so that you can “walk in them”.
These good works refer to all the positive Commandments that
relates to your relationship with your neighbours and how you show
that you love them.
Eph 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Messiah
Y’shua for good works, which YHVH prepared beforehand that
we should walk in them.
Faith (faithfulness) – Faith is the word “amunah” that comes from the
word “aman” that means truth. True faith can only be based upon the
truth. Faith is not passive and something you believe to be true. Faith
or “amunah” actually means faithfulness, and that means to act on
the truth you have received. We should have faith like our faithful
father Abraham who was a servant of YHVH whom YHVH made ruler
of over many things because he was faithful in one thing YHVH asked
of him, sacrificing His only beloved son.
Matt 25:21 His Master said to him, ‘Well done, good
and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will
make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your
Master”.
Meekness – Humility is one of the gifts that will help you to reach
people from a servant's heart, with a motive of helping others and not
to benefit yourself.
Eph 4:2 with all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering,
forbearing one another in love.

11
Temperance – Self Control is key in managing your flesh and not let it
overpower your spirit-man. Without self-control you will be fleshly and
not able to live a life that reflects the character of the one you
represent.
2 Pet 1:5-7 But also for this very reason, giving all diligence,
add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-
control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness,
to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.
As you can see, all the Fruit of the Spirit are “tools” through which you can
reach people for the Kingdom as His Priests. They are the means to drawing
people into the light and help you to become like Y’shua, your High Priest, the
One you represent here on earth. Remember we are His hands and feet, we
need to walk as He walked and did the things He did to fulfil His Restoration
Plan through His Priesthood here on earth.
When Y’shua walked the earth, He did a lot of miracles and healings. Have you
ever connected these healings to the requirements for His Priesthood? Most of
the healings He did was related to the Standards of the Priesthood and how He
prophetically started the process of transforming His Bride into His Priesthood
that will become His hands and feet after He ascended to His Father. We need
His Word and His Spirit to be transformed so that we can become part of His
work here on earth until He returns one day.

Judgement Seat by Jill Le Vieux

I know we'll stand before the Judgement seat one day
I often wondered what The Lord would have to say.
Well done my child,
You accepted me, you are guiltless you can now go free.
And yet I think there is so much more to be accounted for
Suppose you stand before His throne today and hear what The Lord has to say
my child, I dwelt in you
In all my power and glory too
I commissioned you to preach my word –
I ask you now "how many people heard" you were my hands to heal the sick,
my voice to calm their fears,
I ask you now, were those indeed productive years?
So many times my heart ached with pain to see the lost so damned,
so many many people from every race and every land,
Enter your rest my child but don't be beguiled, there was so much more for me to do
When others could have seen Me in you.
It's too late now; it's completed, done –
Those that are lost are lost
And those that are one are won.
