A Believer entering the arena of worldly competition is quickly swallowed up by the world and lives are twisted as fame grabs a quick hold. “Love and fame cannot live in the same place”. Even people of the world have found this to be true. No man can serve two above all: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve ALAHIYM and mammon. MATTITHYAHU (MATTHEW) 6:24 את CEPHER
In MASHIACH one competes with themselves to be better for Him as it allows the opportunity for charity. To compete with another incites envy, jealousy, boasting, pride and the opposite of good will. It is usually driven by low self worth and a desire for fame and fortune. Let’s face it we desire to be praised and honored by others. If we live in the Ruach, let us also walk in the Ruach. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. GALATIYM (GALATIANS) 5:25-26 את CEPHER
All competition is born of sin when it is not for MASHIACH or protected diligently by the Ruach Ha'Qodesh. To win makes another a loser in any other context. There is no competitive institute in this world that meets those qualifications, that is not supported by greed, money, hidden agendas and abuse of some sort. None!
To pray to YAH that you or your group win over another is to ask Him to make all others a loser. Which causes us to err in sin. YAHUAH IS NOT A RESPECTER OF PERSONS!
Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. YA`AQOV (JAMES) 4:2-3 את CEPHER
Now we know that ALAHIYM hears not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of ALAHIYM, and does his will, him he hears. YOCHANON (JOHN) 9:31 אתCEPHER
