  1. Gosh, we do need to examine ourselves. We have been immersed in a system that says we have to rely on ourselves and the government. I have a habit of accumulating for "just in case" moments. I always like to be prepared but there is a flaw in my preparation because it means I am relying on self to preserve self. Truthfully, this is going to be tough because this is my stronghold exposed today. I imagine I am not alone. Father help us to let go of us and to put our emunah in you. So be it.
    I also came to this understanding that when something dies, it no longer owns anything. Obvious I know, but do we think about it as true born again believers? We were BURIED with Yahusha and therefor dead to the world and "things" of the world. When we say we die to the world, we should understand that it means dead to "things" too. How can we say we are truely dead if we are still hankering after the "things" of this world? It can only mean, we are not truly dead to the world as we suppose but alive to it and still carnal. The dead own nothing. We are raised in Yahusha and alive in the spirit and so therefor our focus is to be all things spiritual. We are still living in this earthen vessel which still has needs, but those needs should be basic and not indulgent or in luxury. We were bought at a price and we surrender to our Father’s will in Yahusha. We are under a new covenant that sets us free from this corrupt world and its "things". We have to repent.
    We heed Yahusha's word in
    14: 26 “If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple. 27 And whoever does not bear his stake and come after me cannot be my disciple. 28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it— 29 lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, 30 saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish’? 31 Or what king, going to make war against another king, does not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? 32 Or else, while the other is still a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks conditions of peace. 33 So likewise, whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be my disciple.
