The shadow of our Messiah Yeshua. All that He is. All that is declared and made known of Him throughout scripture, is still being revealed to many of us who have come out of “organized religion”. And many of us are still coming to terms with how we should respond to this revealing. Along with the Truth sent by the Father through Messiah Yeshua, there is a darker shadow also being exposed. This darkness has been here from the beginning as well; possibly, as Yeshua was, from before the foundations of the earth were laid.
As we come to know Yeshua, we learn of the desirable attributes He possesses and wants reflected through us as we grow in Him; traits such as love, joy, peace / shalom, kindness, goodness and humility as well as many others. But, other traits exist as well. Traits born out of darkness that remain in the darkness. Traits many of us have turned away from and repented of. These darker traits, their foundations, effects on relationships and their connection to things seen and unseen will be discussed in future blog posts, encapsulated by the term “Spiritual Narcissism”.
