Be Human
(Ge1:27; Rev21:1-4)

God is Immanuel (Mt1:23).
According to His plan before the creation He created man and
In the last days He takes those whom He wants
To live with Him eternally (Rev21:1-4).

Faith is knowing that I am a human and
The life of this faith is about putting effort to become human in order to live with God.

“Man” is differentiated from animals by his distinctive nature and requires to have morals,
While “human” is required to have human nature (humanity) to live with other humans.
Humans use language to communicate with their family and neighbors and
They can be educated, understand, concede, harmonize, cooperate and even make sacrifice.
As such, the greatest pain for human is segregation, isolation.
The worst punishment for humans is eternally having no neighbors — that is, hell (Mt25:41).

Despite the fact that God created a suitable helper for Adam for
It is not good for him to be alone (Ge2:18),
Adam was deceived by his wife and sinned, for which he resented her (Ge3:11-14).
Cain who killed his own brother and insisted on having nothing to do with him
Developed social anxiety for the rest of his life (Ge4:8-14).

God led Moses who at the age of 40 decided to visit his brothers (Ac7:23-26)
To deliver the Israelites who had been slaves in Egypt for 430 years and gave them the Law.

The principle of the ten commandments
Inscribed on the stone tablets inside the sanctuary was
Comprised of the ethics regarding God and
The ethics regarding neighbors — in other words, their relationships (Mt22:37-38).
They were to love God with all their heart, with all their soul and with all their mind, and
Love their neighbors as themselves.
Though they were commanded to set free their fellow Hebrew slaves after seven years, however,
They disobeyed and thus were cursed with
The sword, plagues, being scattered among many nations (Jer34:8-17).

Yeshua said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days” (Jn2:19), because
Through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body,
He would not harm neighbors but show mercy on them.
He would further love enemies by laying down His life for them (Mt5:38-48),
Showing the love of infinite forgiveness (Mt18:21-35).
He is the Word in the beginning who became the Son of Man (Jn1:1-2, 14),
The very nature God who became human (Php2:7).

As He died, He said, “It is finished” (Jn19:30), declaring that He:
1) Fulfilled the Law (Mk12:29-33), loved the Father with all His life and His soul finally entered inside the Father (Lk23:46; Jn14:10);
2) Condemned the devil the separator (Ge3:4-6); and
3) Loved all mankind like Himself and died in their place (Jn15:12-13; 2Co5:14).

He rose and sat on the heavenly throne.
The Holy Spirit comes from there to
Those who received the name Yeshua and became His children (Jn1:12) and
Lets them become members of church whose head is Yeshua (Eph1:22-23).

The Christian is he who has a sense of unity, the consciousness of the community.
He has neighbors who bear the image of God,
The brothers born of the blood of the same Father for
There is one God, one Father, one Lord, one body, one faith, one hope and one baptism (Eph4:1-6).
Therefore, he puts effort to eat together and starve together,
Die together and live together with them for
When the Son of Man Yeshua returns to seek humans who are humanly
He longs to be taken up to the Father’s house and
Live with Him forever (Rev21:1-4).

O Lord,
Let us not become “humanitarians” who have no Yeshua or church.
Let us not become Christians without neighbors and brothers.
Let us weep with those who are weeping.
Let us laugh with those who are laughing.
I love You, Yeshua, so much!
Oh, I want to live with You, Yeshua, forever! Amen.
