Love is the Plum Line

Plum lineLove is the Plum Line

A Plum-line is a very simple yet very precise tool, a piece of string with a weight at the bottom.  The law of gravity assures us, with 100% accuracy, when we align with “true vertical,” because the plum-line always hangs perfectly straight.

What if we had a plum-line for Truth?  Wouldn’t we check it before arguing our opinions about what we think is True?

The Creator of the universe set many laws in place, the law of  gravity shows us what is straight, water always settles at “true level,” and Love is our plum line for Truth,  Isaiah 28:17

In light of all the religious divisions and man-made doctrines in the world today, do any of them match up perfectly to the Plum-line of Love?   From Atheism to Zoroastrianism, people seem more eager to convert others to their own way of thinking, rather than testing their opinions to the Original, Unchanging Truth.  Truth, just as “true vertical,” and “true level,” does not change or vary at all.   Truth is the same yesterday, today and forever, Hebrews 13:8.

Laws of Reality are There for the Testing

YHVH, Creator of the universe, has revealed reality in His creation.  “For since the creation of the world YHVH’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.”  Romans 1:19-21

People are without excuse, from the beginning of creation to the end, because He has made the invisible known by what we are able to clearly see.

Both Truth and gravity are unseen laws, yet both are able to show us the difference between straight and crooked, with a Plum-line.  This is why the Word of Truth was given to Moses in writing.

The Word Became Flesh

YHVH is the Creator of all things, Revelation 4:11  His Word is Truth, Psalm 119:43,His Word is Life, Psalm 119:25, His Word existed even before Moses wrote it down.  Adam, Noah, Abraham and Job knew YHVH.

The Written Word and the Prophets foreshadowed Y’hoshua, (Jesus)!

“And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, He (Y’houshua) explained to them what was written in all the Scriptures about Himself.”Luke 24:27

Through a virgin, Isaiah 7:14, named Mary, Luke 1:35 , the promised Seed of the woman was conceived,  Genesis 3:15.  The Word became flesh and lived among us, John 1:14Matthew 1:23.  We call His Name Y’hoshua, meaning, YHVH our Deliverer! Numbers 13:16

Truth always matches the original, unchanging Scripture:  Isaiah 9:6Jeremiah 23:6Isaiah 49:7Isaiah 53:3Isaiah 53:4,10Isaiah 50:6Psalm 69:29

All Scripture hangs on these Two, Matthew 22:40,

The Plum-Line

 Deuteronomy 6:5Leviticus 19:18 

“Hear O Israel, YHVH our God is One,  Love the YHVH your God with all your heart and with all your mind and with all your strength.’  The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.” Mark 12:30Mark 12:31

Love is the Plum-Line

“If you Love Me, you will keep My commandments.” John 14:15

And this is Love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the very commandment you have heard from the beginning, that you must walk in Love.” .2 John 1:6Leviticus 19:18Galatians 5:14.

We know that we have passed from death to Life, because we Love one another.  The one who does not Love remains in death.”  1 John 3:14

Whoever does not Love does not know YHVH, because YHVH is Love.” 1 John 4:8

By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you Love one another.” John 13:35

Prophets who claim to speak in YHVH’s Name, James 5:9-11  will match His predestined Way to Truth and Life.  Y’hoshua affirmed He is the Way, the Truth and the Life, John 14:6.

We are instructed to test every teaching to the original Scripture, if it doesn’t match it has no Light, Isaiah 8:20.  Even if an angel from God preaches a different message, Galatians 1:8!

Like the noble minded Berean’s, we need to examine the Scriptures daily to see if what we hear is true, Acts 17:11.
