The message comes to life on March 29th, 2016.
Two spiritual brothers come together again after ten years of silence. Now, in their thirties, with their glory days well behind them, one brother (later known as Aharon) has found a sense of renewal knowing the other has returned. He finds, though, that the other has transformed into another being, known as Yahunatan. This crazy hermit (seen as a madman to some) speaks in a different tongue then heard before.
Aharon has a difficult time adjusting. His health is very poor, previously dealing with scoffers eager to disprove his prior mantle. A challenge is given to him.
“What we are going to do is warn this community of the direction it is going and give an answer that many will not like,” says Yahunatan. “For at least a year, we must do this without building a grand organization for ourselves. It will be called Jedihood. The focus will be humility and moving people out of their comfort zones.” This would later prove to be exactly what happened.
Aharon accepts the challenge, although is frustrated and broken. “I can’t do a video.”
“You simply have come full circle, while the others are still figuring out where it will lead. Until you get to that broken state… you can’t get out of the cocoon and speak the wings.” Yahunatan pauses for a moment, then speaks again. “Metamorphosis is the only way, rebirth. Or born again.”
Wikipedia notes that “Born Again” used to be known by Christians as a deep experience of gaining faith, one which develops a direct and personal relationship with God. In truth, this birth has nothing has nothing to do with Christianity (it never was). It is about entering a kingdom—being born of water and spirit. “Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit,” Yahshua states, “he cannot enter into the kingdom of Yah.”
This change must come from within. “And this is the condemnation: that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that does evil hates the light, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.”
“But he that follows truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest.” To manifest something is to demonstrate, to display one’s acts or appearance.
Jedihood is meant to be a ‘motion picture’ of this example.
Eventually, their initial E-mail conversations spark a video message (which was shared between them on March 29th, 2016). It would eventually be edited by Aharon some days later.
So begins the Jedihood message.
