Walking In Yahushua

As we continue to ponder the significance of the first three words of  (Matit'yah-ha' Levi 4:18) one cannot but be open to the possibility of the spiritual teaching that walking conveys. Consider the following: the word halak  in the Hebrew   (Strong's #1980) means, among other things, to walk (figuratively). In Malachim - Aleph 3:3 it says " And Solomon loved the LORD,[Yahuwah}]walking in the statutes of David his father: Zacharias and Elisabeth in Ur 1:1 are pictured as "....walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord[Yahuwah] blameless." The Scriptures also teach that walking can be used to denote disobedience as found with Zimri in Malachim-Aleph 16: 19: "For his sins which he sinned in doing evil in the sight of the LORD, in walking in the way of Jeroboam, and in his sin which he did, to make Israel to sin."

When we consider that  Yahushua never walked in sin, no, not even in thought (Kefa Aleph 2:22& Yochanan 14:30)[1Pet. & Jn] we do well if we heed the words of Scripture: "He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked." Yochanan Aleph 2:6 (Jn)

And how do we walk as He walked?{as physical walking must begin in the mind, so to must spiritual walking} "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: [Messiah Yahushua] Phil. 2:5 And what was, and is, the mind of Yahushua? In order to receive His mind we need to closely study His ways(which are a reflection of His thoughts and habits) with the strict purpose of becoming like Him. Simply put; we must behold Him. Yahushua has given us some practical lessons in this. He has taught us to watch and pray lest we enter into temptation. He has taught us to pray without ceasing; that is, to be continually in the attitude of prayer. To habituate the mind to dwell upon purity, honesty, and all the themes of Phil. 4:8. As we practice this continual staying upon Him the mind is renewed in Ha kodesh (set apart-ness); and we day by day receive a deeper revelation of the mind of Yahuwah. Almost imperceptibly; as a growing tree, we grow up into Him in all things with the fruit of the Ruach [Spirit] present and  perfect at each stage of development until fully ripened  and ready for the great harvest.

 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
[This] I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. Gal. 5:25;5:16
